‘More Crap from Common Core’

See the source image

Love that government!

Until Common Core is actually repealed–and that’s never going to happen, with Democrats owning the House of Representatives–we will never be safe from “When the government speaks, the people must obey!”

https://leeduigon.com/2013/11/08/more-crap-from-common-core/

In case you had any doubts that we are living in a fallen world.

And y’know what’s the scariest part? That our country, these United States–we are the Rolls-Royce, the gold standard, the Faberge Easter Egg of human dignity and liberty in this so badly fallen world. No other country even comes close, except for maybe Costa Rica, although I’m not so sure about them lately.

Freedom is not natural in a fallen world. Tyranny is. Rending each other is.

For as long as we stand under God, we stand.

Out from under God… we fall like the rest of ’em.


As England Turns Its Culture Inside-Out

See the source image

I still don’t understand why anyone would do this. Do you?

Across the Atlantic, the local council governing the city of Brighton has ordered its schools to teach the, uh, “lesson” (?) that boys and men can have periods, just like girls and women (https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2018/12/16/schools-eight-year-olds-boys-periods/).

Do we even have to mention that’s not true? The council–dominated by the Green Party, which tells you something right there–calls this “Taking a Period Positive Approach in Brighton and Hove Schools.” They want to “reduce the stigma” of having a menstrual cycle, adding that “periods are something to celebrate” all over the world. Yeah. Right.

And so, to make girls feel good about themselves when they become old enough to have periods, the schools in Brighton will teach that everybody, men and boys included, has periods. The schools are now in the business of knowingly teaching something that is blatantly untrue, to serve an ideological end.

Somewhere along the way, there’s bound to be a little boy, his brain addled and battered by this sort of schooling, who grows alarmed and despondent when he doesn’t have a period. What an achievement by the educators!

Why are we doing these things? How is any of this supposed to benefit anyone? Why do we teach preposterous lies and turn our whole culture inside-out to please some incalculably tiny minority and its left-wing political sponsors?

O Lord our God, remember that these things are done without our consent, against our will, and over our objections: in Jesus’ name, Amen.


Prepared for Life… as What?

See the source image

A personal anecote: a man who operates a Lindt candy shop in one of our New Jersey malls wished to hire part-time help, as do many small businesses during the Christmas season. So he hired a recent high school graduate.

As he tried to instruct her in her not-terribly-complicated duties, she interrupted with an objection. “I can’t count nickels.” “What?” “I can’t count nickels.” What she meant was, she couldn’t count by fives: 5-10-15-20-etc. Never learned. She can probably tell you all about Diversity, though. In case anybody comes into the shop looking for that instead of chocolate truffles.

He wrote her a short list of what she had to do. Another objection: “I can’t read that.” Turns out she can’t read cursive writing, never learned how.

What were they doing with her, all those years in school? With all those $100,000-a-year teachers and administrators? With all those tax dollars spent on her, ahem, “education”?

On second thought, I think I’d rather not hear the answer.


‘Your Tuition Dollars at Work: University Pries into Students’ Sex Lives’ (2014)

See the source image

If, for instance, Walmart wished to pry into its employees’ sex lives, and required each and every one of them to fill out a questionnaire demanding the most intimate, detailed information… what do you suppose people would have to say about that? Would they not marvel that Walmart dared to do such a thing? Would they not be crying out for the CEO’s head on a pole?

Not that the public was exactly tickled pink when this publicly-funded looniversity did the same thing, four years ago:

You do wonder what kind of upbringing these academics and administrators must have had–or if they had any kind at all.

Next question: why do we entrust our children’s “higher education” to such people? Answer that one, if you can!


What We’re Up Against

See the source image

Why do we have to pray so hard, sing so many hymns, and speak the truth?

Because we live in a fallen world that’s falling farther every day: but we proclaim our loyalty to Jesus Christ the King of kings.

For instance: The principal of Manchester Elementary School in Omaha, Nebraska, has been “placed on leave,” whatever that means, for banning candy canes from her school’s classrooms. Candy canes, she explained in a memo to all staff, when you turn ’em upside-down, make a “J” for Jesus and that’s not allowed, it is forbidden… (http://thepoliticalforums.com/threads/103592-Principal-bans-candy-canes-says-%E2%80%98J-shape%E2%80%99-stands-for-Jesus). “Historically, the shape is a J for Jesus,” she wrote. We wonder how close she came to banning the letter “j” altogether.

She also banned the colors red and green.

It seems the school board took action because they were scared of being sued for showing overt hostility to Christianity and Christians. Supreme Court recently said you can’t do that. But don’t look for any “human rights” commissions to stop doing it.

As it is, the traditional Christmas holiday that always used to be observed by schools is mostly now a thing not to be mentioned: now the holiday is usually spoken of as some kind of “winter” celebration.

Secular tinhorns can’t make up their minds about which religion they’re trying to establish as the official state religion of America–atheism or retro paganism. Either way, public education is on board. Anything but Jesus, is their motto.

And Christians continue to send their kids to these schools because ________?

We live in a dark age. Sing louder! It may let in some light.

‘Poll: Ninnies Reject Capitalism’ (2016)

See the source image

So they polled a bunch of Millenials (I don’t like where that label is headed, but never mind) and found 51% of them said they don’t like capitalism and would rather be rid of it (https://leeduigon.com/2016/08/03/poll-ninnies-reject-capitalism/).

But only 31% said they wanted socialism instead–so they don’t really know what they want. Three wishes, probably.

America is “educating” herself to death.


‘Welcome to Caitlin Middle School’ (2015)

A lot of what’s wrong with America is the fault of our so-called public education system.

I wrote this as a satire just three years ago. It doesn’t seem like such a satire now.

https://leeduigon.com/2015/10/04/welcome-to-caitlin-middle-school/

They literally teach our children disrespect for truth.

And Christian parents send their children there.


‘Why the Good Guys Always Lose’ (2013)

Five years later, and Christian parents still send millions of Christian children every day to anti-Christian public schools. Here is a typical lame attempt to justify this folly.

https://leeduigon.com/2013/08/28/why-the-good-guys-always-lose/

Honestly, this whole business of asking 9- and 10-year-olds to be “salt and light” in the Mordor of the public schools, and maybe just maybe convert the frothing-at-the-mouth leftids in the teachers’ unions–well, really, how silly can you get?

Most of what’s wrong with our country is public education’s fault.


Bad Culture… Bad Politics?

Image result for images of couch potatoes

I find myself puzzled by how tame and flaccid–with a few dramatic exceptions, notably the election of Donald Trump as president–the American people show themselves in the face of brazen campaigns to tear down our culture and turn our country into, well, God knows what.

Does it have anything to do with millions and millions of people thoughtlessly consuming a popular culture that never seems to run out of disgusting innovations? What we like to call our “entertainment”?

Bad enough that public education, owned and operated by the Far Left Crazy teachers’ unions, education theorists, and all sorts of academics a few fries short of a happy meal, force-feeds whole generations of Americans with non-stop lessons in socialism, sexual hyperactivity, self-hatred, and cultivated ignorance. Beyond the schools, the people continue on a lifelong course of passive self-education in the form of “entertainment.”

Can this be why our national politics is increasingly characterized by mob rule, censorship, a raging hatred of any opposition, bizarre court rulings, and speeches made, and policies proposed, that would have been unthinkable, not so long ago? Why people have come out of the woodwork, and taken charge, who would have been very small and quiet, once upon a time?

You know I always say, kill the culture and the culture will kill you back. I think I see that happening now, in our politics. Open borders, transgender “rights”–ideas that are dangerously preposterous, that can’t possibly do anything but hurt us, are routinely offered to us today as a new normal.

Most of us have noticed that the Left–that is, the Democrat Mob Rule Party–is getting crazier and crazier, more and more extravagant in its fantasies, more violent in its tactics, and less and less inhibited in what it will do to get back into power.

Are we truly becoming the kind of people who accept this?

If we are, a great deal of effort has been expended in making us so.
