Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez She Guevara ranted last night that until someone else comes up with a plan to “address the global climate crisis,” then “we’re in charge”

Sen. Feinstein Tells Green New Deal-Promoting Kids She Won’t Respond To Pressure Tactics

I have no doubt Sen. Feinstein is going to be savaged for this by the far left and that’s honestly fine with me. A group of kids organized by the Sunrise Movement, the left-wing group campaigning for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, went to Feinstein’s office today to pressure her to support it. The organizers clearly figured Feinstein would have a hard time telling these cute and earnest kids no. They were wrong.

I just love it when the left beat up on themselves.

Trump Admin Ecstatic with Late-Night Deal That Broke Deadlock Over Natural Gas Exports.

This deal kicks Vlad Putin in crotch (One of Russia’a biggest hard currency money makers – GazProm – exports natural gas) and the demoncraps still try to smear him as a Russian puppet.

Once complete, Calcasieu Pass terminal will export up 12 million metric tons of LNG a year. Brouillette said the project already has buyers, including in Europe, waiting for American natural gas. Hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling spurred an oil and natural gas boom over the past decade, making the U.S. the world’s top hydrocarbon producer. However, a limiting factor on oil and gas is the lack of export terminals and pipelines.”

On this day in 1945, a detail of U.S. Marines of 3rd Platoon, E (Easy) Company,  2nd Battalion, 28th Marine Regiment, 5th Marine Division, fighting on Iwo Jima raised a larger replacement flag on the summit of Mt. Suribachi providing Joe Rosenthal an opportunity to photograph an image that became an icon of American military prowess in World War 2.


You Give Apps Sensitive Personal Information. Then They Tell Facebook.

Millions of smartphone users confess their most intimate secrets to apps, including when they want to work on their belly fat or the price of the house they checked out last weekend. Other apps know users’ body weight, blood pressure, menstrual cycles or pregnancy status.

Unbeknown to most people, in many cases that data is being shared with someone else: Facebook Inc.

The social-media giant collects intensely personal information from many popular smartphone apps just seconds after users enter it, even if the user has no connection to Facebook, according to testing done by The Wall Street Journal. The apps often send the data without any prominent or specific disclosure, the testing showed.

It is already known that many smartphone apps send information to Facebook about when users open them, and sometimes what they do inside. Previously unreported is how at least 11 popular apps, totaling tens of millions of downloads, have also been sharing sensitive data entered by users. The findings alarmed some privacy experts who reviewed the Journal’s testing.

Facebook is under scrutiny from Washington and European regulators for how it treats the information of users and nonusers alike. It has been fined for allowing now defunct political-data firm Cambridge Analytica illicit access to users’ data and has drawn criticism for giving companies special access to user records well after it said it had walled off that information.

In the case of apps, the Journal’s testing showed that Facebook software collects data from many apps even if no Facebook account is used to log in and if the end user isn’t a Facebook member.

Apple Inc. and Alphabet Inc.’s Google, which operate the two dominant app stores, don’t require apps to disclose all the partners with whom data is shared. Users can decide not to grant permission for an app to access certain types of information, such as their contacts or locations. But these permissions generally don’t apply to the information users supply directly to apps, which is sometimes the most personal.

In the Journal’s testing, Instant Heart Rate: HR Monitor, the most popular heart-rate app on Apple’s iOS, made by California-based Azumio Inc., sent a user’s heart rate to Facebook immediately after it was recorded.

Flo Health Inc.’s Flo Period & Ovulation Tracker, which claims 25 million active users, told Facebook when a user was having her period or informed the app of an intention to get pregnant, the tests showed.

Real-estate app, owned by Move Inc., a subsidiary of Wall Street Journal parent News Corp , sent the social network the location and price of listings that a user viewed, noting which ones were marked as favorites, the tests showed.

None of those apps provided users any apparent way to stop that information from being sent to Facebook.

Chicago Dem Wants Socialism to Have ‘Control of Every Single Facet of Our Life’

Again with the displays of confidence so strong they think they can be so open about their aims.

Ugo Okere, a Democratic candidate for Chicago city council, said Thursday he believes democratic socialism should have total control over how people live.

In a Thursday interview with the left-wing Jacobin, Okere was asked to define democratic socialism, and he gave a remarkably expansive answer.

“Democratic socialism, to me, is about democratic control of every single facet of our life,” he said. “Government is led by the people, not by big corporations, not by multibillionaires, and working people actually have control over who we elect to be our politicians, over how elections work, and over how our government is structured. People have the power.”

Okere went on to say he believes socialism should guide a society’s entire course, not just its political structures:

Democratic socialism even extends to our relationships and how we treat each other. [It looks] at the world through a socialist-feminist lens, in how we treat people who are black, who are brown, who are femme, who are non-binary, who are gender-nonconforming, and who are working class.

To me, we’ll have achieved democratic socialism not when there is no conflict in the world, but when our societies are not governed based on power, but are governed based on the mutual understanding that everybody deserves a decent and quality life.

This socialist vision of society seeks to overturn the existing order and should not be confused with the mainstream progressive left, Okere explained.

“One part of the Left wants to reform the existing society that we have now. They want to make changes that will make life easier, that will make life not so bad,” he said. “But there’s another side of the Left that wants to radically transform the way the world works — not simply say that we can make some changes here and there and that things will be alright.”

Okere has received the endorsement of the Democratic Socialists of America, which backs such progressive leaders as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.). He faces incumbent Alderman Patrick O’Connor, who has been in office since 1983, as well as three other candidates. Although it’s a tough race, Okere said he’s happy enough just to be spreading socialist ideology.

“This campaign is literally making socialists, and I’m proud of that,” he said.

Three Venezuelan soldiers desert before planned aid handover, Colombia says

I figure if there’s some that did it, there’s more that are considering it.

CUCUTA (Reuters) – Three members of the Venezuelan national guard deserted their posts early on Saturday, Colombia’s migration agency said, ahead of a planned opposition-led effort to bring aid into the economically-devastated county.

The soldiers have asked for help from the agency, it said. The opposition and countries supporting the aid caravan have repeatedly called on the Venezuelan military to defy orders by President Nicolas Maduro to bar its entry.

Bloomberg’s Everytown: Criminalizing Private Transfers is About Creating “Culture of Compliance”

Nothing we really didn’t figure out on our own already (it’s not about guns but “control”) , but interesting that they now feel so confident that they can be this transparent. One day I hope we can feed them these words right down their collective tyrant throats.

If you were still under the impression that gun control was about giving law enforcement the tools to target violent criminals, think again. At a February 12 hearing concerning Nevada Senate Bill 143 that criminalizes the private transfer of firearms, Attorney for Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety William Rosen made clear that gun control is about creating more servile law-abiding gun owners.

Rosen was asked by State Assemblyman Tom Roberts (R-13), who has 34 years of law enforcement experience,

“I’m really concerned about the people that don’t follow the bill, follow the law that you’re intending to pass here…. How’s law enforcement supposed to enforce this in the field? Say they’re not a prohibited person, but they still don’t abide by the transfer process, they just sell it like they’ve been doing at a gun show or whatever. How’s law enforcement supposed to investigate that and prosecute those cases?”

During his response, Rosen explained, “The ultimate goal of this type of legislation is not to put people in jail but rather to create a culture of compliance where law abiding gun sellers require background checks…”

Ohio Music Shop Owner Posts Sign Turning Away Trump Supporters

An Ohio music shop owner placed a sign in front of his shop turning away supporters of President Trump, saying he felt “unclean and dirty” from doing business with them.

The owner of Joe’s Music Shop in Willoughby, Ohio, placed a sign outside his store outright telling those who support Trump to go “shop somewhere else,” WOIO reported.

“Dear Trump sympathizers, I am truly sorry, however, I feel unclean and dirty accepting money from you. Please politely shop somewhere else,” the sign read. “Sorry, I would rather starve and close the store than participate in wrongdoing. Many blessings to you. I hope you understand.”

The Trump Administration’s Latest Move Could Effectively Defund Planned Parenthood.

The man just keeps on keeping campaign promises.
Now if we can just get him back on the straight and narrow about gun rights.

On Friday, the Trump Administration’s Office of Population Affairs published the final text of proposed changes that will effectively block Planned Parenthood and other clinics that provide or even mention abortions from receiving a type of federal funds.

The new document, which is 312 pages long, outlines a series of rule changes related to how the federal government distributes money allocated for the family planning grant program known as Title X. This program, which was created in 1970 with bipartisan support, provided $286.5 million in 2018 to pay for free or low-cost birth control, as well as other preventive care like STI screenings, for low-income women. Each year, Title X serves 4 million women through healthcare providers who receive grants from the government to provide services. (This would not affect reimbursement by Medicaid, a separate program.)

The major changes include a new requirement that all participating Title X providers “maintain physical and financial separation from locations which provide abortion as a method of family planning.” This means that any clinic or doctor’s office that also offers abortions is no longer allowed to receive federal grants that would help provide free or low-cost birth control for low-income women.

Although a spokesperson from the Health and Human Services Department, which oversees Title X, told Refinery29 via email that the Trump administration”seeks to serve more women and men than previously served in the Title X program,” advocates say the new changes will do precisely the opposite.

Reproductive rights advocates say this is a direct attack on Planned Parenthood
(Do tell.)



Three men break into wrong home, confronted by armed homeowner

Three Thugs discover “Overmatch!” when one homeowner has a gun.

DUBUQUE, Iowa (KCRG) – Three men are facing charges after police said they broke into a Dubuque home intending to assault a man, but the suspects entered the wrong house and were confronted by an armed homeowner.

Police responded to a home in the 1600 block of Main Street at about 12:30 a.m. Thursday following a report of a home invasion. The homeowner told police he heard someone slamming on his front door and attempting to enter his home. He went to another area of his house to retrieve a handgun, returned to the entrance and confronted the three suspects that had entered his home. The suspects fled the home once they realized the homeowner had a gun.

Hunter Poole, 20; Laterian Williams, 20; and Antonio Vilchis, 20, all of Dubuque, were arrested a short time later. Police said the men had entered the wrong home and the homeowner was not the man they planned to confront.

All three men are charged with second-degree burglary.


The Facts About Mass Shootings Support Gun Ownership, Not Gun Control
Democrats shouldn’t add more gun control laws to the books when the shootings in both Parkland and Aurora could’ve been prevented by existing policies.

Maybe the politicians should simply get rid of these ineffectual laws period.

By painting the tragic Parkland shooting as a failure of gun control, however, Pelosi disregards the indisputable fact that the shooter’s rampage was enabled by years-long, system-wide failures of policy and personnel.

Andrew Pollack, the father of shooting victim Meadow Pollack, is on a campaign to hold those who failed the Parkland victims accountable. This includes the resource officer and deputies whose inadequate response allowed the shooting spree to continue for 11 long minutes, the FBI officials who ignored a tip about the shooter’s intentions just over a month prior to the attack, the Broward County superintendent whose “Promise” program kept students’ criminal activities from being reported to police, and the school officialsmental health providers, and officials from the Broward Sheriff’s Office who ignored a series of red flags, not to mention murderer’s lengthy history of violence and mental health issues.

These Tragedies Happened Despite Legal Barriers

Judging by the sheer number of pending legal claims against Broward Country Public Schools (103 as of December 2018), Pollack is not the only parent of a victim or survivor to find that fault extends beyond the shooter and his weapon. The families of two Parkland victims are also filing suit against the manufacturer of Cruz’s AR-15, and the store where he purchased it.

On Friday, just one day after Pelosi threatened future gun control initiatives, America experienced another preventable and horrific shooting in Aurora, Illinois. After he was fired from his job, Gary Martin used a pistol he unlawfully possessed to shoot employees in his workplace. Martin killed six employees, and wounded five of the police officers who responded to the scene before he was killed by police.

As a convicted felon, Martin should not have possessed a weapon. When applying for an Illinois Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card in January 2014, he lied about his previous felony conviction for aggravated assault. After he purchased his pistol in March, Martin also applied for a concealed carry permit. When the fingerprinting process revealed Martin’s criminal history in Mississippi, police turned down Martin’s application, revoked his FOID card, and informed him that he must relinquish his weapon within 48 hours. Instead, Martin kept the pistol.

If Democrats impede law-abiding Americans from arming themselves to protect their fellow citizens, and themselves, then the only people with access to weapons will be those who purchase them illegally, with criminal intent.

House conservatives urge Trump admin to declare cartels terror organizations

Not a bad idea for use on our side of the border (we’ve got plenty of room in Gitmo) , but I think they watched ‘Day of the Soldado’ too many times. We start any kind of significant operations inside Mexico  – and that’s where the cartels live and breathe – and that government is not going to simply stand aside.

Drug cartel operations have made a mockery of our laws, flooded our streets with deadly illicit drugs, and endangered our citizens for years; now, two conservative lawmakers want the Trump administration to give them the same treatment as terror groups.

House Freedom Caucus members Mark Green, R-Tenn., and Chip Roy, R-Texas, announced Wednesday that they would send a letter asking Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to designate dangerous drug cartels as Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs) under section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act.

The letter claims several cartels already meet the three criteria for FTO designation and makes the case that it would give law enforcement even more tools to combat the cartels’ deadly, dangerous, and destructive operations:

“Numerous drug cartels employ terrorist tactics that clearly fit this definition,” it reads. “These groups use terror to intimidate and advance their agenda. They threaten the stability of governments across the globe.”

“These cartels have utilized barbaric tactics including those adopted by ISIS and al Qaeda – murdering and torturing innocents, destabilizing countries and assassinating members of law enforcement,” reads a press release from Green’s office. “Moreover, they threaten our homeland security. Our communities suffer from the powerful and dangerous drugs cartels make available to our citizens. Fentanyl and heroin overdoses have taken thousands of lives.”

Man who shot at California cop previously deported, arrested but cops wouldn’t honor ICE detainer

I bet that Deputy, and her father – another Deputy – will have some words ‘in private’ with jail staff and the Sheriff. I would and it wouldn’t be pretty.

The illegal immigrant killed Sunday in a shootout with a California cop had been deported three times and arrested and released over ICE’s objection on several occasions — including cases involving the very department whose officer took him down in a dramatic exchange caught on her body cam.

In a graphic, 48-second clip released Wednesday, body camera footage from Sunday’s traffic stop shows Javier Hernandez Morales rolling down his window, grabbing a handgun and opening fire. Napa County sheriff’s Deputy Riley Jarecki narrowly avoided getting struck before running to the other side of the car, firing at least 15 shots into the red Honda.

Hernandez Morales, 48, died at the scene and the deputy was not seriously injured, officials said.

Flagstaff, Arizona, sets all-time snow record as major snowstorm buries southwestern US

Just another indication why the econutz had to change it from ‘GlowBull Warming’ to ‘Climate Change’.  Maybe Leonard Nimoy was right.

A storm is unloading feet of snow, creating blizzard conditions and shutting down travel over the mountains of Arizona and New Mexico.

Snow fell over the northern Sierra Nevada, including Donner Summit, California, throughout the day on Wednesday. However, the heaviest snow will not be on the Sierra Nevada but rather the mountains farther to the southeast.

During Wednesday evening, parts of the valley around Las Vegas picked up over 4 inches of snow. Travel became slick and treacherous in the surrounding area as a result.

On Thursday, Interstate 5 at the Grapevine in Southern California was closed as snow created difficult travel.

Some schools in Las Vegas will be closed on Friday due to the recent snowy and current freezing conditions.

Is the American Autobahn next? How states are pushing highway speeds past the limit

Having been stationed in Germany and  “Fahr’n auf der Autobahn” there’s two things – at a minimum – to consider.
1, Our highway system is not generally designed for any speeds greater than 70 mph. (and the German Autobahn only has quite limited sections where speeds are ‘unrestricted’)
2, Our Driver Education system is laughable compared to how drivers in Germany are educated, and tested, before getting that full license.
If those aren’t addressed, especially Driver’s Ed, first, we don’t need to “go there” yet.

And one last point; People will have to keep their noses out of their IPhones when they’re driving

After years of seeing posted highway speeds creep up around the country, perhaps it’s no surprise that a California legislator would propose the ultimate in motoring freedom: No limits at all.

State Sen. John Moorlach’s vision for a Golden State version of Germany’s famed Autobahn — a stretch of pavement where you can drive as fast you want — is just the latest in a series of moves by states to put the pedal to the metal when it comes to speed limits.

It’s happening even as safety experts try to throw on the brakes on speeds that have now reached legal levels they view as somewhere between risky and downright dangerous.

“We have routinely seen studies that show when states raise speed limits, they can expect higher deaths,” said Maureen Vogel, spokeswoman for the National Safety Council.

Yet, the resulting higher speeds haven’t made much of a statistical dent in highway deaths, the Governors Highway Safety Association reports.

In 2017, there were 9,717 speed-related deaths from among 37,133 total road fatalities. Those speed-related deaths were down 574 from 2016, were about the same as in 2015 and up 434 from 2014.

One dead and 12 injured as Venezuelan troops open fire on civilians trying to keep Brazilian border open for aid – a day after Guaido’s trucks rammed through roadblocks

  • Venezuelan troops ‘opened fire’ after arriving at a village where civilians were trying to keep the border open
  • Woman named as Zorayda Rodriguez, 42, was killed and 12 were injured, four seriously, it has been reported
  • Video also shows a clash between President Nicolas Maduro’s troops and backers of his rival Juan Guaido
  • Security forces shown standing in path of trucks which are believed to have been on their way to the border
  • Maduro is trying to block US aid from entering Venezuela but Guaido is planning to bring it in on Saturday
  • Rival pop concerts set to take place at either end of a blockaded border bridge today as tensions mount
  • Russia accused the US of using aid deliveries as a ploy to carry out military action against Maduro’s regime

Crews to abandon two Venezuelan tankers stuck in Portugal.

Looks like they ran out of ‘other people’s money’. Cue Margaret Thatcher

The crew of Venezuelan oil tanker, the Rio Arauca, that has been stuck in the middle of the river Tagus in Lisbon for nearly two years due to unpaid debt, is set to be dismissed, managers Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM) said on Thursday.

BSM also said in a statement sent to Reuters another Venezuelan tanker, the Parnaso, which is in dry dock at the port of Setubal, south of Lisbon, will also have its crew removed later this week due to a lack of payment from owners PDV Marina, a subsidiary of Venezuela’s state-owned oil company PDVSA.

Lisbon’s maritime court ruled to take possession of the Parnaso last August. Both vessels are under BSM management.

PDVSA had no immediate comment on the issue.

The Real Scandal Of Trump Term Starts To Unravel.

For more than two years, the United States and the world have had two competing narratives: that an elected president of the United States was a Russian agent whom the Kremlin helped elect; and its rival narrative that senior officials of the Justice Department, FBI, CIA, and other national intelligence organizations had repeatedly lied under oath, misinformed federal officials, and meddled in partisan political matters illegally and unconstitutionally and had effectively tried to influence the outcome of a presidential election, and then undo its result by falsely propagating the first narrative. It is now obvious and indisputable that the second narrative is the correct one.

The authors, accomplices, and dupes of this attempted overthrow of constitutional government are now well along in reciting their misconduct without embarrassment or remorse because — in fired FBI Director James Comey’s formulation — a “higher duty” than the oath they swore to uphold the Constitution compelled them. Or — in fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s words — “the threat” was too great. Never mind that the nature of “the threat” was that the people might elect someone he and Mr. Comey disapproved of as president, and that that person might actually serve his term, as elected.

Liberty is not possible for an unarmed society.

Mike McDaniel has a great, piece up at his place. Go read it, here is a sample

Last week’s installment of this updated series asked a fundamental question: Do human beings have an unalienable right to self- defense? There is no question the founding fathers of our constitutional, representative republic believed they do, and they acknowledged–not created–that unalienable right in the Second Amendment. This was finally–in 2008 and 2010 respectively–affirmed in the Supreme Court’s decisions recognizing, for the first time in American history, that right: the Heller decision, and the McDonald decision,which applied the right to the states.

It is time to consider a second, related question:  DOES EVIL EXIST? 

Everyone who visits here knows I understand that evil does, indeed exist. Frankly, anyone that does not believe in the existence of evil is delusional at best.


‘Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties’ Declared in New Mexico

(KAMR/KCIT) – Several counties in New Mexico have recently declared themselves as “Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties.” County officials say the move defends their citizens’ rights to keep and bear arms.

This comes in response to several gun-control bills pending in state legislature.

Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties currently include Quay, Union and Curry, but there could be more in the future, as 29 sheriffs in the state of New Mexico disapprove of new gun control laws.

Quay County Sheriff Russell Shafer explained his disapproval, “The legislative house is trying to abridge those rights of New Mexico citizens along with the citizens of the United States to keep and bear arms.”

This includes House Bill 8, which would require background checks on all gun sales.

But, Shafer explains basic gun laws already in place are still going to be enforced. “Declaring Quay County a Second Amendment Sanctuary County, That is not to get confused with being a sanctuary county to come to this county and commit mayhem, cause problems, cause violations of the other laws with a firearm that by no means does that. That’s not what we’re saying,” Shafer clarified.

Union County Sheriff James R. Lobb explained his reservations on the new laws. “I have an issue with having to go to a dealership and do a background check before you can even trade a gun or sell a gun to your brother or your best friend. That’s my concern, that’s infringing upon our second amendment rights.”

According to Lobb, the state police, however, can still enforce the new legislation in these counties despite their declarations. Roosevelt County’s board of commissioners will be hosting a special meeting on Friday to consider a similar resolution.

Illinois Lawmakers Want to Send Government Agents into Every Home School

A new bill introduced into the record in Illinois by state Rep. Monica Bristow would, if passed, send government agents to investigate the homes of every homeschooling family in the state. The bill reads, in part:

[A]fter a home-schooling registration form is submitted, the State Board of Education must request a Child Protective Service Unit of the Department of Children and Family Services to investigate the home in which the home schooling will occur to ensure there is no suspected child abuse or neglect in the home.

Not only would Illinoisans’ Fourth Amendment right to be free from unlawful search and seizure be trampled, but they would be subjected to government inspections every two years, according to the text of HB 3560.

Illinois is well-known for it’s failing public school system — it is so bad that over 70 percent of Chicago public school eighth-graders are basically illiterate. Homeschooling families in Illinois were outraged that the government was attempting to interfere with homeschoolers, who consistently score much higher on tests than public school students. David Smith of the Illinois Family Institute immediately got on the phone with lobbyists for homeschooling advocacy groups to start petitioning Bristow to reconsider this vast invasion of privacy.

Mediocre Schools Breed Mediocre Workers

According to the CDC, American suicide is up 25% since 1999. Instead of asking why more meds are given to depressed people—often causing more depression, the root causes are ignored.

Depression has multiple causes. Some are:

  • an individual forced into a controlled environment
  • not being able to express themselves as individuals
  • anti-depressants
  • ignoring natural psychological and physical needs
  • not belonging
  • loneliness (devices replacing friends)
  • lack of responsibility
  • lack of morality
  • life without meaning or purpose
  • lack of common sense
  • inability to logically draw conclusions in problem solving
  • inability to reason (thus drawing wrong solutions)
  • frustration having no future or destiny.

All of these are key triggers often leading to anxiety and depression.

Depression can lead to violence and or suicide. Sadly all of these key needs have been eliminated from schools. Today schools train our children what to think, not how to think.

Common Core forces a child to think in a box with little hope for a future not in line with the predetermined government goal. Common Core is based on the premise that people are stupid and the “smart academics know best”. To rise against a desired response often causes a child to be bullied or act out just to make their ideas known. This is turned into a feeling of hopelessness. Drugs, massive piercing, drinking, murder, terrorism, suicide are often the result of feeling hopeless. Common Core manipulates emotion and eliminates individualism, forcing a child into groupthink, not innovation and creation. Emotion become dominant with no logic reason balance. A person can only think of one thought at a time. By forcing overuse of right brain function (emotion) the left brain (logic and reason) become dormant from lack of use. Today, aside from being functionally illiterate, too many people are motivated by a trigger word that unleashes unbridled emotion too often resulting in violence or suicide.

Continuing to do the same thing over and over, expecting different results, is insane, as we have heard over and over. Common Core, Whole Word Reading, Eureka Math, Evolution, Secular humanism, all assist in diminishing the capacity of America’s future. Yet we ignore the facts and continue to push these horrid programs filled with errors, omissions and bias. Have we learned nothing from years of failing grades?

Why are we forcing America’s children to follow a failed program? Education based on collectivism not individualism, training not education and values not facts, according to the brilliant educator Shirley McCune, is to change and alter the society. This is not education. It is indoctrination. She promotes outcome based education. Our children’s destiny will now be chosen by a computer. How many more generations of Americans will we lose to this indoctrination called education?
