A chief auditor has found that a dozen school districts throughout Pennsylvania concealed their budget surpluses in reserve accounts so they could say they were short of funds and needed another tax increase (https://www.pennlive.com/politics/2023/01/school-districts-tuck-money-in-reserve-accounts-to-justify-need-for-tax-increases-audit-finds.html).
They’re hiding “hundreds of millions of dollars of budget surpluses,” said the state’s House Republican leader.
Over the past four years, the auditor reports, the 12 districts collectively have gulled the voters into approving 37 school tax increases. The auditor concluded that the practice must be quite common, because the 12 districts he audited are scattered throughout the state.
All sorts of hair-splitting excuses have been made for this. It seems to fall into a grey area, legally… so school officials won’t be charged with stealing public money.
They also get away with grooming children for every kind of aberrant sex you can think of, fomenting racial paranoia, and working tirelessly to estrange children from their families. That’s public education. What’s a few hundred million dollars that disappears along the way?
Extra: Lame Excuse They Haven’t Used Yet: “Oh, yeah? Well, what about what the town council does with the snow removal budget? They’ve always used it up by Labor Day!”
Lights out? Not at this school!
Hey! Let’s have computer chips implanted in our brains so we can be real smart!
Uh… Maybe not.
Minnechaug High School, in the Hampden-Wilbraham school district, Massachusetts, has some 7,000 lights–and can’t term ’em off (https://www.yahoo.com/news/lights-massachusetts-school-over-because-140038949.html). Your school tax dollars at work!
The school is only ten years old, but in 2021 it developed a softwear cock-up and now they can’t turn off the lights: they’re on 24/7. It’s costing thousands of dollars a month, but be comforted–at least it’s not tens of thousands a month, a school official says. I feel better already.
They’ve been working to solve the problem, but they haven’t solved it yet, other than to unscrew a few light bulbs. How many school districts does it take to turn out the lights?
We don’t know!
Here are some teens who’ve already been captured (the barbed wire is a tell).
It’s only January, but former Squeaker of the House Nancy Pelosi already has it sewn up for the year. And don’t be too surprised if a teeny bit of truth slips out of a corner of her mouth.
House Democrats recently offered legislation to lower the voting age (in federal elections) to 16. It didn’t pass. And here’s what Pelosi said.
“I think it’s really important to capture kids when they’re in high school…”
“Capture”? You’ve already got ’em captured in the public schools, getting brainwashed by Far Left teachers’ unions. You’d think they’d try to tunnel out… but I guess it doesn’t take that long to make their minds right. Then they’re ready for college.
And ready to vote, too! Can’t get married at 16, can’t sign a binding business contract, but boy howdy, you can help decide the fate of our country! And you’re almost certain to vote Far Left because even if you eventually grow out of it, it’ll be years too late.
Oh, you’ve captured them, all right. That’s what public schools are for and that’s what they do.
The one and only purpose here is to keep Democrats in power. Forever.
When it comes to public education, there are so many things wrong with the picture, you scarcely know where to begin.
Like, letting a kid die while you wait for an answer to your email…
What’s Wrong With This Picture?
Boy saves classmate’s life–and gets suspended! I think that tells us all we need to know about public schooling and the kooks who perpetrate it.
Yeahbut, yeahbut! We can’t afford homeschool! We never heard of those crazy goings-on! Besides, public school is free!
Just a little bit of good news–
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals (of all people!) has ruled that a public school teacher in Vancouver, Washington, can wear his MAGA hat to a teacher training session because he has a Constitutional right to exercise free speech (https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2022/12/u-s-court-appeals-rule-maga-hat-free-speech/).
Huh? Well, yeah–it is free speech. (Ya mean it isn’t?)
Yeahbut, yeahbut! We can’t have that! The principal called him “a racist” and “a homophobe” for wearing the hat and said it made the other teachers “feel unsafe.” Again, if you’re that big a doofus, you just have to wind up working in the, um, “education” industry.
The school principal threatened the teacher with “disciplinary action,” whatever that was going to be, won the first round in court, and then got smacked down by the 9th Circuit.
If you “feel unsafe” because someone wears a MAGA hat, you are an idiot.
And so you can wear your MAGA hat… but what’s really needed is to liberate America’s children from the Far Left crazies cranked out by our Far Left teachers’ colleges. Public education is too far gone to be repaired. It must be abandoned: it’s a threat to the future of our country.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way!
In 2019 the state passed a law against suspending students for disruptive behavior in the classroom. See? With that one simple action, they made it worse!
Can We Make California’s Schools Worse?
The absurd “law” went into effect in 2020. Please spare me the brain-dead liberal platitudes. I have been a public school teacher. I know how bad it gets. In the teachers’ lunchroom they fantasize about shooting at least one student every day to keep the rest in line.
California’s experiment in chaos has already failed. Make sure you wear galoshes when you walk in San Francisco.
Hollywood has-been Sean Penn
Ordinarily I’d cover all these nooze stories today… but I just don’t feel like it. Let me just rush through them so we know we have to keep praying.
*Sean Penn–remember him? and who’d blame you if you didn’t?–sez being unvaccinated is “a criminal offense” and you shouldn’t be allowed to earn a living, go out in public, etc. This from a guy who looks like he sleeps between the garbage cans in a back alley. Really, no Hollywood hot-shot, even an ex-hot shot, has to look like that.
*Thomas Jefferson High School, in Virginia, has decided to do away with all academic rewards in favor of–as the idiot in charge says–“equity.” She describes herself as a big believer in “equal outcomes” for all. Anyone that stupid just has to wind up in public education. (We told you about that word “equity”: it has no meaning anymore.)
*Congress has gotten around to banning TikTok from all “House [of Representatives]-issued mobile devices” because it’s a security risk. TikTok, owned by the Chinese Communist Party sock puppet, Byte-something, collects all sorts of information on American users–even children–and sends it all back to Peking. At the very least, it might yield some information that could be used to blackmail someone into betraying America… I mean, if they aren’t doing so already. Meanwhile, some state legislatures have already banned TikTok and are hoping to make the ban nation-wide.
There you have it! Three nooze reports for the price of one!
Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.” (Psalm 128:4)
How much more can I write, this year, about depraved public schools, moral imbeciles as teachers, government running interference for them, etc., etc.? I mean, they’ve got a posh private elementary school where the “dean” hands out butt plugs to the kiddies. I won’t even link to that.
I want to go to Grandpa’s for Christmas Eve. Can’t! Most of the family is dead. The few of us who are left live hundreds of miles apart. Even the house is gone. Hundred-year-old house, gone like it had never been.
Meanwhile the millionaire morlocks in the World Economic Forum hunt our souls and seek after our flesh. We are governed–and “educated” (LOL)–by persons who hate us. They’re not shy about it. Now that they’ve learned how to steal any election, anywhere, they can do whatever they please and never, ever be held accountable.
We’ve got a baby in a manger.
He will hold them accountable.
What are you getting for your school taxes?
You’re getting screwed.
Here are official Dept. of Education figures for the decades 2000-2019.
In those 20 years, the number of students enrolled in public schools increased by 7.6 percent, the number of teachers employed went up 8.7 percent–
And the number of “administrators” in the schools increased by 87.6 percent.
(Source: Imprimis, Nov. 2022)
Is this insane or what? Why do we need this swarm of “administrators”? Principals, vice principals, “diversity” mullahs, “inclusion” experts–it’s like a wave of army ants. These are the “education theorists” who subject our children to Critical Race Theory, transgender, LGBTQ porn in the school libraries, and all the rest of the abominations for which public education is… can I say “noted”?
Nothing is hurting America more than what we insist on calling “public education.”
This has to stop. It really has to stop. And I’m afraid the only way to do it is to pull the children out of public schools. We can’t change the bizarre Marxist mindset of teachers’ college graduates, and even less, that of the “administrators.” Let them practice their voodoo in empty classrooms.
Is this 100% per crapola, or what?
When they sought to build a tower reaching up to heaven, God confounded human language, breaking it up into hundreds of mutually unintelligible languages. This prevented the formation of a world government.
Now leftids confound our language as a step toward world government!
Because hopelessly confused people who can’t express themselves coherently are easier to control.
The Libs’ Tower of Babel
My old alma mater, Rutgers University, advises students “Just shut up!” because, after all, there’s really no such thing as free speech. But if you do talk, they want to make sure you babble idiotically. All those new pronouns, including “they” for “he” or “she,” were only invented to mess up your brain.
O Lord our God, deliver us!
