Paid Protesters

TeaParty

FAKES

An interesting phenomena has developed with the unhinged leftist democrat party, they are now using paid protesters to impersonate the success of the real Tea Party.  The leftist are claiming their group is organic and spontaneous.  That’s why they have to pay for protesters to attend TownHall meetings to shout down their elected officials.

Unlike the real Tea Party which had actually grievances with the Obama regime’s failed trillion dollar stimulus and Obamacare, the real Tea Party organized to elect representatives to overturn the Obama agenda of fundamental changing of America.  I’ve often wondered why Obama wanted to change America into a socialist nation.  If you truly loved your country, then why would you want to change it?  Obviously, Obama never loved his country, the Constitution, and the American way of life.  Obama wanted to change America into a socialist European oligarchy.

bagger-baggee

I will not soon forget the ridicule and mocking the leftist said about the Tea Party.  How the democrats called the Tea Party ‘AstroTurf’ and a bunch of miscreants pretending to be true American patriots.  Guess what, since 2009 when the Tea Party formed, we’ve won the House, the Senate, Governorship’s, and local State legislators.  The democrats condescending ‘we know better than you’ posture garnered the anger of working voters.  The loss of jobs, income, and homes because of the failed policies of the democrats, angered Americans to organize.

At that time in January of 2010, a leftist political movement that was initially formed as an alternative to the Tea Party movement. Co-founder Annabel Park said that the group initially had significant appeal among those opposed to the Tea Party.  It was quickly short lived.   So now, the leftist are trying to model themselves after the real Tea Party in 2017, but they are still using the same old tactics that the Occupy Wall Street used to intimidate people.  Using paid protesters to attend TownHall rallies and disrupt the people’s business.

mediabias

At the time the real Tea Party was formed, the leftist media tried to make accusations of racism and violence by members of Tea Party.   Since President’s Trump’s election, the media has fueled the violence of the never Trump demonstrators.  The leftist media is complicit in the riots, the violence, the property damage these groups have committed. The leftist media foams at the mouth hoping for another terror attack on America so they can blame conservatives.  The leftists actually want to see American’s killed by terrorists.  They are begging for it.

As long as the leftists keep up this destructive pattern, they will not earn the sympathy of fly-over America.  They will get the contempt of working Americans.  Rich Hollywood and New York elitists have a snobby haughtiness for working Americans.  The people that pay their taxes, go to church and obey the laws, are looked down upon by leftists.  How dare the left try to pass themselves off as God fearing Americans that love their country?  When they have nothing but blind hatred for the Constitution and contempt for working Americans.

After eights years of the leftist fomenting class envy, class warfare, and racial animosity, it going to be hard to take them seriously.

Timeless Beginnings

timelessTomorrow, January 20th 2017, at 12 noon EST, will be the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States of America.  The peaceful transition of power continues in the American tradition.  Donald J. Trump will be the next President of the United States.

However, peaceful isn’t in the purview of the liberal leftist democrat.  They prefer violence over peace.  From democrats congress people boycotting Trump’s inauguration, to the riots, property damage, and absurd gay demonstrations on Vice President Mike Pence’s home.  A disgusting vulgar display of fascism by democrats.  It is the history of their party.

I don’t remember any riots by conservative demonstrators during Obama’s 8 years as president.  If there were, the slobbering media that protected and defending Obama, would have reported it.  It would have been front page news for weeks.  There’s would be a media public court convicting and declaring racism against Obama, but it never happened.

It’s no wonder why the fly-over America people, the accursed bitter clingers that Obama ridiculed as bigots and religious intolerant, had decided that they have had enough of being called racists in their own country.  Only because they had Christian beliefs and opinions that didn’t conform with the ‘#FakeNews’ liberal secular media, and the socialist ideology of social justice.

I call this post ‘Timeless Beginnings‘, because it represents the pendulum of political change. The change that Obama promised was dreadfully hopeless. Trump enters with a new idea of change.  Restorative change. When that pendulum arm swing reached to its apex and begins to move towards restoring reason and sanity. Timeless because of the tradition of the transfer of power, and the Beginnings of a change in traditional politics.  For generations, since the inception of this great nation, United States Presidents were politicians.  That all ended now that Trump was elected.  A no nonsense business man that created a fortune in real estate.  Granted that he had a privileged upbringing, but many other Presidents also came from wealth and privilege.

Obama also benefited from the same privilege. Despite being a bastard child of communist parents, he went to expensive schools and was afforded all the opportunities of a wealthy spoiled offspring.  Despite becoming the most powerful man in the world, Obama squandered away his opportunities for a great legacy, and now Obama has no accomplishments to show.  All the damage Obama did to this country will be erased.  I could not be more pleased. After 8 years of government mismanagement, the media cannot defend Obama’s farce anymore.  The immunity of crying racism is over.

trumplincoln

Unlike Obama that needed Hollyweird fake greek columns to create a god like emanation for his failed legacy, Trump uses the Lincoln Memorial to put in perspective the enormity of the task before him.  Humility isn’t something that Obama displayed during his tenure in office.  Just the opposite.  Obama displayed contempt and vindictiveness against anyone that opposed him, and he use the power of the government to exact revenge.  I’m hoping that Trump doesn’t follow in that leftist example.

We have no idea the direction that Trump will take this country, but there are clues.  Clues that are refreshing and positive.  Trump’s cabinet positions are some of the best in the industry has to offer.  They are not just cronies, and yes men, and yes women.  They are critical and driven like Trump.  They have unique skills that will help this country’s needs.  They are successful, and they don’t need to do this Congressional clown show of job interviews.  They are different than the crony appointments that never met the bar of accomplishments.  Such is the legacy of Obama.

I don’t know how Trump will govern, but I like the fact he doesn’t speak about himself as Obama has done.  Trump is inclusive and speaks inclusively.  Unlike Obama, who spoke only about himself.  It was only about Me, Myself and I.  It will be refreshing to hear about US.

Living In Sin With A Safety Pin

generalelection

The election of Donald Trump was indeed a dramatic change in American politics.  A change for the better, I hope and pray for.  A continuation of the democrats socialist agenda by Hillary Clinton would have further damaged the country, and I believe irreparably.  For the record, I wasn’t for Trump.  Trump wasn’t even on my list of choices.  However, after he won the primary, fair and square, I had to put my support behind him.  I did so by pointing out the flaws of the democrats preordained candidate, Hillary Clinton.  The corruption in the democrat party was so apparent.  The hard left media coverage of Clinton’s campaign decidedly ignored the criminal activity by the Clinton’s and the democrat leadership.

Since Donald Trump won the election, the media has fueled, along with profession protesters, violence, property damage, and social chaos in the streets.  The people causing these riots are not Trump supporters, they are hard line leftist socialists.  There is no excuse for this violence.  This morning, I watching a protest on the TV News, where a school has allowed student to march in protest, carry Mexican flags, and block traffic in the streets.  These are high school students, that should be in class, but the teachers and other leftists are denying students an education so they can protest.  They are not even old enough to vote in the election.

The so called millennials, those reaching adulthood in the 2000’s, that are in college, are being taught they are entitled to sulk, cry, stomp their feet, have a temper tantrum, over the election results.  They are now wearing safety pins as a protest symbol.   Makes sense if you still need a diaper and need to be changed four times a day.

pins

The sense of entitlement is destructive, because these young people are the future of the country.  If they cannot handle disappointment in their life now, then how will they handle life’s challenges in the future when they leave college and enter the real world?  They, as United States citizens, have the First Amendment right to protest, but not violently. Illegals in this country who are not citizens, are not entitled to the same  Constitutional Rights.  There is no right to destroy property, no right to beat up people, no right to obstruct emergency vehicles, there is no right to criminal behavior.

To date, there’s been silence by President Obama.  He almost seems to revel in the chaos. President elect Donald Trump has gone on 60 Minutes and looked at the camera and said, “This has to Stop. Stop It!”  The leftist media perceives Trump supporters are harassing and making racist comment against minorities, but they have no proof. However, you can see minorities beating up people in the street because they supported trump. A pregnant woman was attacked in her car, an elderly man was dragged from hos car and beaten, and a girl was severely beaten for being a Trump supporter.  A mother threw out her ten year old because he voted for Trump in a mock school election. This is insane!

Clearly, these demonstrations are being orchestrated by the democrats, the communist part, the hard left socialists, and anti-American financiers such as George Soros.  It is deliberate attempt to circumvent the election by force, and that is not how this country works in the peaceful transfer of power.  After all, you did not see people rioting in the streets when Obama won the Presidency in 2008, and when he won again in 2012.  However, you did see an erosion of Constitutional freedoms during the eight years of the Obama regime.

The democrats had all the money, all the media power, but they lost the election anyway.  The Founders ingeniously built the Electoral College into the Constitution.  It defines how the Presidential elections are chosen.  It is why we are a Republic and not a democracy.  The Founders knew the history of democracies.  They knew how and why democracies failed.  It was because of Mob Rule, otherwise known as the popular vote.  The tyranny of the majority often creates a single party system that eventually gets corrupted and fails.  It is why our system of government works.  It might not be perfect, but it has worked for over 240 years.  We are the most free, the most wealthiest, and we have the greatest opportunities available in the world.  We are unlike any other government.

It’s no wonder why people want to come to America.  We offer one thing, equal opportunity for all.  Individual rights and freedoms.  The liberty to choose the path we want.  When government attempts to take those rights away, and substitute those rights with government given rights, then people should know that are rights given, can be taken away.  That’s why the Founders called our rights of “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness“, God given rights.  These rights cannot be taken away, they are not man made rights.  They are rights that are given by our creator.   It is up to us, the individual, to use those rights to create the life we want in a land that is free.

The Constitutional Scholar That Never Was

bullshitter

As the New York Post describes it:

“Obama fancies himself a modern-day Prometheus stealing laws from the oppressive Founding Fathers for the benefit of the oppressed.”

What is certain is that Obama is no Constitutional scholar, but a fraud!  So who are these oppressed people anyway?

It’s no wonder how many people were fooled by an even bigger fool.  Perhaps it was the years of academia rewriting of history to portray those that left ancient Europe for better economic opportunities, and religious freedoms, into oppressive slave masters.  Still, after all these hundred of years, you wonder why people from all nations still want to come here to America.  Where are the lines of people wanting to leave America for better opportunities elsewhere?  Where are they going to?  What country?

Call it the Gruber-ization of the uneducated and ignorant oppressed.  I liken it to the Joseph Goebbels-ization where if you tell a lie often enough, eventually people will believe it.  How many lies have slipped from the purple lips of the messiah Obama?  More than I dare to count.  But why do people still believe in Obama and the democrats lies?

By Obummers logic, and the progressive democrats (a.k.a. socialists), using illegal aliens for votes, is nothing more than creating a new definition of economic slavery.  In exchange for legal status, a social security card, and other government benefits, these oppressed illegal immigrants will forever vote democrat.  It is a disgusting way to bribe power from the poor, thus keeping the poor oppressed and without a future for economic opportunity.  It is truly a crime.

It is a crime against those that followed the rules of immigration, only to see their opportunity get pushed back to the end of the line.   The oppressed are the ones that lived across the borders of this country, entered illegally, overstayed their visas, smuggled themselves and their children; all for the hopes of a better opportunity.

That’s the real joke isn’t it?  For the promise of false opportunity, illegals give up their rights to liberty.

Their future is in low paying jobs by unscrupulous employers that would use them as low wage employees.

Then there’s the purple lipped liar Obama, demanding employers to give America a raise.  

Inviting another wave of illegal immigrants that will accept low paying jobs, for the chance of opportunity.  What opportunity is there in a economy of progressive slavery?  What freedom is there in overregulations and lack of liberties?

Meanwhile, the socialists (a.k.a. progressive democrats), will be campaigning on social justice, income inequality and class warfare.  They will produce a Elysium narrative that opportunity is being repressed by people who worked hard and built their success off of others.  When in reality, the democrats repress economic opportunity to gain power by stealing it through excessive taxation and over regulations!   Economic opportunity doesn’t happen with wealth redistribution, it only prohibits economic opportunity.  That’s not Constitutional policies!

The lazy corrupt news media will blame conservatives for the bad economy progressive democrats created.  Tom Brokaw, with his Sally Jessy Raphael glasses, flaunting his wealth around while slamming those trying to build a culture of economic opportunity.  These are the one percenters that gave birth to the the socialist Occupy Wall Street goons.  These are the crony capitalists that give government contracts to failed government projects for campaign contributions.  These are green energy Solyndra’s that wasted billions of your tax dollars.  Meanwhile, cheap affordable energy is being destroyed because of the hoax of Global Warming.

Progressive socialist democrats will always use the strawman argument to try and frighten people into believing good people are trying to take something away from them.  Its always been their motive to control the people.  This is how the few, the progressives, control the many.

Good people, working class people, average Americans, became part of a force to push back against this corruption.  They protested against government overreach and corruption.  They were demonized by the wealthy media, the ignorant and socialist communists.  They are called the Tea Party.

The Tea Party are employees, employers, entrepreneurs and small business people.  They work at WalMart and they are small business owners.  However, they don’t want their wages confiscated by union thugs only to be used to fund socialist democrats elections.  You have no choice with unions dues.  Unions take your earned money, and you have no choice.  That’s not democracy, that is called communism.  That is not representation, that’s called taxation without representation.

The Tea Party wants the same opportunities for everyone.  The democrats want only government to provide for the few that will only vote for them.  That’s not opportunity, that’s called economic slavery.

Hawaii’s Dynamic Duo

TheEnergizedPair

It is a historical moment in Hawai’i politics; two native Hawaiian’s running for the two highest offices in the State.  James “Duke” Aiona is running for the governorship, and Elwin Ahu is running for lieutenant governor.  Both are campaigning as Republicans in a heavily democratic state,  Aiona was Hawaii’s lieutenant governor during the Lingle administration for two successful terms, despite working with a hostile democrat House and Senate.

Ahu is a senior Pastor with the New Hope church.  Ahu is running for a return to the framework of the Hawaiian Constitution which has been repeatedly disregarded by liberal democrats in the State Legislature.  Indeed, over the years, the democrats have stopped listening to the Hawaiian people, and have been catering to minority special interests.  In 2011, the legislature adopted to change the rules of beginning the legislative session by dropping the daily invocation.  A tradition that goes deep in the Hawaiian cultural roots, and despite a public outcry, the liberal legislator decided to ignore the people.

People in Hawai’i feel their voices are no longer being heard anymore, and many have stopped voting altogether.  One of the reasons for the low voter turnout is because that Hawai’i has become a one party state.  It is discouraging for most people that don’t get a choice.  Over the years, the progressive democrat party has stopped listening the the people of Hawai’i Nei..

The democrat candidate for U.S.Senate, Brian Schatz, whom was appointed by Governor Neil Abercrombie, barely won the primary election against Colleen Hanabusa.  The liberal democratic party machine made sure the election was in Schatz favor by disfranchising voters on the Big Island of Hawai’i.  After tropical storm Iselle, those residents that lost power, homes, and vehicles due to storm damage, were rushed to vote at the polls.  Many didn’t get a chance to vote because of the political maneuvering by the liberal political machine.  When every vote counts, it is typical for democrats to change the rules to fit their plans to keep control of Hawai’i.

I think this time the democrats have gotten enough people angry enough to change the tide of corruption that for years were owned by liberal democrats.  Abercrombie’s stunning defeat as chronicled by Hawai’i Free Press: 

Abercrombie and Progressive Democrats have a vested interest in the results of balloting in Puna – With stunning defeats to Progressive leaders like Abercrombie and Clayton Hee, Brian Schatz stands as the only “Progressive Hero”[1] standing. Furthermore, Brian Schatz[2] is the legacy of Neil Abercrombie who appointed the Progressive against the wishes of the late Senator Inouye and even his own party.  With the political capital that was sacrificed, this is the closest to a ‘bright spot’ that the unpopular governor has left.

Indeed, Abercrombie lost 48 out of 51 districts across the entire state.  So what’s is the message?  Have the people of Hawai’i finally had enough of progressive liberal democrats?

David Ige won the gubernatorial primary from Abercrombie.  So who is David Ige?  Ige, 57, has served in Hawaii’s Legislature for 29 years – 21 in the State Senate and eight in the State House.  Ige is a career politician with little name recognition and achievements.  Obama’s choice was Abercrombie, and Schatz was Abercrombie’s choice; a progressive cronyism that permeates the democrat party by filling seats with party loyalists.  They all vote the progressive democrat party line, and not for the will of the people of Hawai’i.  This is also why the Lingle/Aiona administration won two terms, despite working with a hostile progressive democrat legislature.

Let’s compare the progressive democrat message to the Conservative Republican message.  Let’s start with Brian Schatz campaign message of fear.  Schatz campaign ads were about “Protecting Social Security” for senior citizens.  Yet, no one was talking about social security but Schatz.  A campaign to scare senior citizens using strawman arguments has always been a progressive democrat tactic for votes.  A campaign of fear, uncertainty and doubt has always been the liberal progressive democrat tactic.  Setting up an environment of social division and class warfare has been Obama’s strategy to try and place blame for his lousy policies on someone else, namely Republicans.  Schatz is using the same strategy.

The Ige campaign sounds very much like the same old, same old, progressive promises and policies.  Lofty and without substance.  There’s the same special interest focus on class inequality and the erosion of family values.  There’s the increasing division between our agriculturalism community and the cost of living in Hawai’i.  Ige proposes no real solutions, but plenty of platitudes to carry on the same failed progressives policies.  Ige campaigns on environmental sustainability and income equality, but doesn’t offer any programs on “opportunity equality.”   How can a Hawaii’s economic tourism be sustained by island views choked with windmills?  How will Ige reduce the high cost of food by increasing the regulations on food production by local farmers.  Ige provides no solutions.

Contrast that, with the Lokahi (Unity) message of Aiona, Ahu, Djou and Cavasso are bringing.

First, after tropical storm Iselle, the devastation to the Puna district on the Big Island of Hawai’i was huge.  Duke Aiona was one of the first to arrive on Hawai’i Island to help with the recovery.  Every news story was scrubbed.  I saw it in passing, and booked marked it to capture it for this blog post.  But you cannot find any media mention of Aiona’s visit.  I tweeted a message to Aiona asking about possible media bias because of the election issues in lower Puna.

Duke

 

Indeed, there was a plethora of stories about Schatz and Hanabusa giving their time to the media  in Puna.  Surely a campaign photo op to self-promote their campaigns.   Here was my response:

myResponse

I can appreciate  Lt. Governor Aiona’s position.  It says a lot about the character of this man.  It is something that I admired during his time in the Lingle administration.   There was transparency, honesty, fairness, trust and balance of the issues during the Lingle administration.  Yet, the hostility against the Lingle administration by progressive democrats did, and continues, to be a disservice the people of Hawai’i Nei.

Hawai’i has some real unique opportunities, and some real unique problems.  I’ve outlined some of the issues briefly above, but lets examine some of the some important issues that Aiona has addressed.

The homeless problem is getting worse.  Whether by drugs, alcohol, mental issues, cost of housing, or lack of opportunities, the homeless problem is getting worse.  There are other progressive states that are dumping their homeless in Hawai’i Nei.  How else are they getting here?  States with the same problems see Hawai’i as a generous place with abundant healthcare and plenty of warm beaches to sleep on.  Progressive democrats welcomed these people, with no idea how to care for them.

Another truth is, Hawai’i is losing our doctors and healthcare providers.  It’s getting more expensive medically and socially to help those that cannot pay, and for those that can pay.  The Obamacare exchanges have failed.  Abercrombie, and the progressives, that supported Obamacare are now conceding this “single payer” plan is a economic drain to the state.  It’s a failed policy that progressive liberal democrats never bothered to read the bill to find out what’s inside it, [sic] Nancy Pelosi.  What Hawai’i needs to attract Doctors and State of the Art Medical Treatment is an open free-market healthcare system.  Onerous taxes on medical equipment needs to be repealed, just like Obamacare.  Hawai’i has an aging retirement population and a growing younger population.  They deserve the best of care, which we have now, without having to fly to the mainland for medical care.  However, unless there is State leadership to resist a centralized government healthcare system, run by Washington D.C., then the progressive democrat message is, “don’t get sick!”

Hawai’i needs a government that uses conservation policies.  This addresses both environmental and economical needs.  Energy needs cannot be met by littering the landscape with windmills.  It is neither economic, nor is it pleasant to view.  Energy policies need a balance that includes harmony with the ‘Aina, and the economy.

Finally, the worse thing a society can do is to tax food.  This benefits no one, and it especially hurts the poor.  Regulations on local food producers, distributors, and providers only hurts the economy.  It only increases the cost and safety of food production.  That needs to be changed.  Aiona has campaigned on this policy change.  We should all look at sustainability beyond what environmentalist claim as a goal.  We should look at conservation as a method for economic and environmental sustainability.

Environmentalism uses emotion and irrational reaction to solve complex politics.  This leads to excessive government regulations and policies that hurt the poor and the economy.  Hawai’i need better than progressive liberal policies.  They just don’t work!

Pono or Porno : Hawai’i Sex Ed Choices

porn

 

What the heck are the Hawai’i Public [or rather Pubic] Teachers thinking?  A new sex education program being introduced called “Pono Choices” gets into explicit sexual activity.  To the point of actually describing certain sexual acts in graphic detail.  The program is targeted at middle school children ages 11 through 13.  This 10 hour program has been taught to about 1,700 middle school students at a cost of $800,000 as a pilot program.  One state legislator has concerns about the programs content.

mcdermott1

 

“Pono”, in the Hawaiian language means: goodness, uprightness, morality, of moral being. Of course, we all know the definition of porno, but is this curriculum’s content seems inappropriate for middle school children of 11 to 13 years of age?

State Rep. Bob McDermott, whose eight children are enrolled in Hawai’i’s public schools, doesn’t want his children exposed to a controversial taxpayer-funded sex education program.  He believes parents should have the say in a subject matter that goes outside the normal education curriculum of reading, writing and math.

From Hawai’i Reporter:

McDermott said the program is “medically inaccurate” and not biology based, and that it teaches children about topics such as anal sex, sex with multiple partners and how to put on a condom — using a cucumber or wooden replica of a penis.

“The program normalizes a homosexual lifestyle and anal sex, while failing to warn students of the extreme dangers of anal sex; it references multiple sex partners, while failing to inform students about the health benefits of monogamy; it fails to warn students about the ineffectiveness of condoms against HPV, herpes, and anal sex; and fails to educate students on the stages of human reproduction,” McDermott said, providing Hawaii Reporter with an early copy of his report.

 “Any talk of anal sex — which the curriculum does frequently — is instinctively repulsive for pre-pubescent children. Additionally, calling the anus a genital — as Pono Choices does — is just plain medically wrong,” McDermott said.

I wrote to the Hawai’i State legislature asking what are they doing about this, I got a two replies from some lawmakers:

Senator Mike Gabbard replied saying he’s concerned and will look into it. Yawn!

Senator Russell Ruderman’s reply to me was less than enthusiastic, saying that he didn’t believe the program was that extreme as worded, and that he will be watchful of what’s presented to kids in school.  He doesn’t believe, which means he doesn’t know.

I got the impression from Mr. Ruderman’s reply to me was to go pound sand.  Then again, Ruderman is an extremist liberal who would probably welcome child sexual tourism in Hawai’i.

Hawai’i Reporter Malia Zimmerman, the article’s author, whom I copied on my initial message to the legislators, also replied back to me:

Being in the media, I am writing about the program and talking about it on my radio show, but believe it or not, most lawmakers are ignoring the issue, and the DOE continues to push the agenda.

 Last night there was a parent meeting at the capitol and there were several hundred people in attendance, so we will see what comes out of it.

 But the board of education is appointed by the governor and the governor, as far as i know, is in support.

We will continue to shine the light on what is happening and hope the parents will take it from here.

mcdermott5

Tolerance vs. intolerance – pedophile tourism – sexual tourism – its common place in countries like Thailand and in some Islamic countries where sexual predators can marry children as young as 9 years old.  Is this the future of Hawai’i tourism?  Educating children to be tolerant and accepting of dangerous sexual activity, is that the new norm for sexual education?

I don’t know if Mr. Ruderman has any children in middle school being taught this curriculum, but Mr. McDermott may and I’m sure he’s familiar with some of the material being taught.

This story has gotten the attention of other media outlets in Hawai’i.  Civil Beat is an online news media outlet that has also followed the story.  Civil beat reporter Alia Wong reports that both Rep. McDermott and Senator Sam Slom have accused the Department of Education of stonewalling them from getting any information about the controversial program.

The DOE states that anyone wanting to learn about the material, which was also developed jointly by the University of Hawai’i at Manoa and the DOE, said they would be willing to have a professional discuss the curriculum material.

The course material includes a teacher’s handbook, a student workbook and a digital presentation; however, the DOE has refused to hand over the information.  Both Sen. Slom and Rep. McDermott refused the DOE and University’s offer.

But why wouldn’t the UH and DOE allow the lawmakers the opportunity to review the materials for themselves?  That doesn’t make sense to me unless the material did include some material that would be objectionable to some parents.  It’s the job of the legislature to provide oversight for such things, especially since the DOE is now appointed by the governor.

As the DOE describes Pono Choices; it is described as a medically accurate teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infection prevention program for kids in grades six through eight. It was developed specifically for children in Hawaii by UH Manoa’s Center on Disability Studies through funding from the federal Office of Adolescent Health. The two-week review, according to the DOE, concluded that Pono Choices is indeed appropriate for schools.

Controversy surrounding Pono Choices — which is already being used at 12 public schools and could soon be adopted by another eight — emerged when opponents of same-sex marriage claimed its legalization would force schools to teach about the “homosexual lifestyle.” Slom, during a special session floor speech, brandished a Pono Choices workbook to argue that the DOE is already teaching kids that gay relationships and sex are appropriate.

There has been a push by liberal extremists to take parental control away from the family.  Educators and liberals have maintained that they should assume the parental role because they believe they know what’s best for the child.  Never mind that the parents’ values and religious objections to such material may be offensive to them.  However, liberals don’t believe in individual rights, parental rights, or any rights.  They believe that all rights come from the government and will be allowed by their approval.

In addressing criticism of the Common Core national education standards, a panelist at the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank, said critics were a “tiny minority” who opposed standards altogether, which was unfair because “the children belong to all of us.” 

Get that parents?  You are a “tiny minority” to these big government people, and your children are not really yours.  They belong to the state.

However, the larger picture may be missing here.  Whenever the state claim ownership of your children, it should ring the alarms to any parent.  History has shown abusive governments have been using children to do the states bidding.  Hitler did that with his youth corps and so did Stalin, they encouraged children to turn in their parents if they disagreed with the states policies.  Today in some Islamic countries they are using their children as human shields and even strapping bombs on them as future martyrs for jihad.  We know they have used the mentally disabled as human bombs.  Breeding the next generations of terrorism.

Gateway pundit asks, is progressive a synonym for communist?  MSNBC is a pretend to be cable news channel, socialist leaning as at best, and racist at worse.  Here’s MSNBC’s tampon girl, [remember she wore tampon earrings], Melissa Harris-Perry explaining that, although your children are yours, they don’t really belong to you.  It takes a village to raise an idiot.

Conclusion:  There has been a long pattern emerging, now with greater veracity by liberals to push an agenda of anti-American traditional values. Progressive liberals have been chipping away at American values of morality and goodness for years.  Groups that used to provided moral guidance for boys and girls, are now given the seal of progressive liberal approval of immoral tolerance.  Teachers should be educating children on how to balance a checkbook and not how to place condoms on a bananas.  That should be left to the parents to decide what sexual education meets their religious and moral values, not the state.

Liberals will argue that promiscuity will be rampant among children without their guidance.  However, unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases will spread without liberal guidance anyway.  Nothing will stop neither natures desires nor the raging hormones of some pimply teenager.  Having some central planing educator introducing a melange of sexual choices at middle school ages is like grabbing a handful of prescription jellybeans drugs, and saying try these, and ignore your  parents.  Then they can eventually go to college and become a professor of leisure studies.  Some future prospects to consider.

The Boy Scouts now allow gay members and leaders.  The Girl Scouts now sell abortions along with cookies.  Grassroots groups like the Tea Party have been trying to take back the letter of the United States Constitution: Individualism, liberty and freedoms. But the progressives liberals are taking your rights away for government dependencies, selfishness and entitlements.  It’s an government proscription for addiction that once hooked, it cannot be changed.  We’ve seen this before in history, and it has never turned out well.

Lawlessness and a clear and present danger to the American people; Obama and the democrats, their media minions, continue to take the liberties upon American’s freedoms.   Lying,  it seems, is the only remaining core value these people have anymore.

I predict that Obama will call for an increase in the minimum wage.  Which will cause more unemployment for young people.  But what’s the worry?  They can stay on their parents health insurance till they’re 26!  If they want college loans, they are forced to go through the government squirrel wheel cage, where their futures will spin with never ending debt.

I predict that Obama will continue to blame George W. Bush and Republicans for his lousy economic policies and the high unemployment.  Although, the media reports the unemployment rate at 7.6%, the actual rate is more like 15%.  Because the actual numbers are fudged by not reporting those discouraged workers who have dropped out of the job market.  I’m somewhat dubious of the statement of discouraged workers, because I believe workers want a job, but are having a hard time finding one.

I predict that Obama will call for a continuation of Unemployment insurance payments.  Let’s see, unemployment insurance is suppose to be only 26 weeks, but then it was extending to 99 weeks.  Some people have been on unemployment for the last 5 years!  So I expect Obama to call for more emergency unemployment insurance.  At what point do the people paying into the system start running out of money?

I predict that Obama will call for more renewable energy initiatives to combat global warming.  Translation; more taxpayer’s monies spent on failing technologies like Solyndra.  Somehow, the government in charge of energy development is a losing prospect for the American people.  Note that the Keystone pipeline sits idle, and the EPA continues its war on coal and fossil fuels.  I’m still waiting for someone to explain to me how energy is renewable after it has been spent.  Especially, when there is an abundance of cheap available energy.

I predict Obama will call for the expansion of immigration amnesty for illegals.  A slap in the face to those immigrants that followed the law, waited in line, and did the right thing.  Expect to hear Obama repeat that same phrase, ‘it’s the right thing to do!’  Is it the right thing to allow lawlessness?  When does it end?  How is that fair to those that followed the rules?

I predict that Obama will continue to sputter divisive rhetoric using threats and intimidation.  I fully expect to hear nothing new of any substance that will help the economy.  I do expect to hear more lofty goals to increase jobs programs, but nothing to incentivize employers to hire.  Are we to expect new jobs are to be all government jobs?  How will that be paid for?

I predict Obama will make wild false claims about his policies.  He will say that his policies are working to help the economy, creating jobs, lowering unemployment.  He will continue to demonize groups like the Tea Party as obstructionist to his policies, and will be true.  After 5 years of failed policies and lies, how can anyone trust this President to tell the truth?

Obama has repeated, over and over, that he’s not willing to negotiate.  It’s my way, or the highway.  This divisive rhetoric is all Barry the Bullshitter has left.  For the next three years, I predict Obama will continue to lose the trust of the American people.  As the Obamacare employer mandate starts to roll out,  and more people start to lose their health care insurance, their doctors and their lives; maybe then will people start to wake up and start paying attention.

 

What’s For Dinner?
