    Sadly there is a new batch of liberals coming along to take their places when they croak.

    • formwiz

      But a lot fewer of them. 40 years of abortion and ZPG have seen to that.

      • MudMarine

        Kinda a horribly ironic joke on Sanger & W Wilson (killing babies for any reason). Libs kill their own in utero and abortion to them is retroactive contraception

          This is why they need the department of education under their control: to teach everyone ELSE’S kids.

          • And that’s a bingo.

    • Oh, come on. Kids always rebel against their parents. That new batch is not only a thinner herd, but also a more wasteful herd. They’ll have a sad awakening when they have to find jobs and can’t get anything good because they are functionally illiterate and unskilled.

      Oh, wait – maybe that was the whole point: a large pool of unskilled laborers who can barely read directions but have great expectations that won’t be fulfilled.

      Life’s a bitch, isn’t she?

          The Party won’t waste the real estate, or lumber. Just a cardboard coffin to slide them into the oven, and then flush down to the nearest river.

        When my son was in school the teachers mantra was ” You don’t have to work at a job you don’t like.” ” If you don’t like the job, quit and get another, there’s plenty of them out there to be had!”

        My son had the impression that getting a job was like shopping for one at Wal-Mart. I asked him once what they’d taught him about the Great Depression and the several different recessions we have experienced since then. His response was; “Huh?” He graduated in 08 and got immediately slapped with reality. Had it not been for me and my wife filling in the blanks on his education he’d be a flaming liberal now.

        As far as I’m concerned teachers and people who write books on how to raise kids are like those so-called experts that write books on how to train a Dachshund. You are better off throwing the book away and teaching yourself.

        My school district is one of the best funded in the state. The county below us has the poorest funded schools and the lowest paid teachers. Their drop out rate is far lower than ours. They send more kids to college than we do. The kids we do send to college have to play catch up once they get there.

        • JTC

          Damn T65, that last para is the best case for voucher schooling I’ve ever seen, and should be sent along with supporting docs to every possible gov official and media outlet (wonder how many of that latter group would print it or even read it?).

          • Deplorable B Woodman

            Ditto on last paragraph to the UEA, Utah Educator’s Union. They (and their useful idiot minions) keep banging the drum about “the need to raise teacher’s pay, high teacher turnover rate, spend more on schools, Utah is the X lowest spending per capita in the country, etc, etc”.

            Meanwhile, what I keep saying, is, throwing more money down a rathole, doesn’t make it a better rathole. And there are plenty of other school districts (Kalifornication, Shitcago, District of Criminals) that spend more money per student, but have WAY worse results.

            What I’D like to know, is where does Utah stand as far as RESULTS? Dropout rate, HS graduation rate, numbers that go on to college (trade/votech, grad school, university), SAT (et al) scores? That will give a MUCH better comparison of ROI (Return on Investment) then just “dollars spent”.

        • Henry

          The disconnect between educational funding and performance is irrefutable. Prime example: DC has one of the highest per-pupil expenditures in the US, and one of the worst literacy and graduation rates. Meanwhie, homeschooling (public expenditure = $0-$) has one of the best.

  • The real problem is that the libretards think/say it’s all about class struggle when it isn’t. Everyone here has the same chance to be wildly successful or make a mess out of his life. It’s something they just do not understand and never will.
    I’m waiting for one of those little snots to call me a money hoarder because I put money into savings every month.

    • eon

      I once had a snotty “social worker” type who looked like a refugee from the Red Green Show get on me about my house. 11 rooms, 2100 sq. ft, two floors.

      His “thing”? I shouldn’t have it all to myself. “I could put FOUR FAMILIES in this house!!” Upon further questioning, said snot proudly proclaimed a “family” was 1 woman on the dole with five kids, age range from 1 to 12. His “median mom age”? 22.

      Do the math (since Snot Nose obviously couldn’t). To have a 12-year-old with a median mom age of 22, that works out to a “mom age range” of 14 to 30. Meaning, we’re talking out of wedlock births for the most part, since age of consent here in OH is still 18. This also explains why “family” does not include that (to him) useless excrescence called a “father”.

      Also, 4 families, 1 “maternal unit” plus five “quarter-units” as we say in CopSpeak (spouse is a “half-unit”), equals 24 people in 2100 sq. ft. That’s 87.5 sq. ft. per person according to Knucklehead (calc).

      I’m not even sure that’s LEGAL according to the State Board of Health, etc.

      And this dwark was getting taxpayers’ money to make plans like this.

      I’ve come to the conclusion that a lot of “social workers” are even more screwed up than most of their “clients”.

        That sounds like a “communal apartment” from the Lenin era, like the seen when Zhivago returns home to find he is only one of several tenants. And, according to the resident Commissar, politically the least important and most expendable.

        • NotYetInACamp

          Yes. the Dr. Zhivago scene. They are the EPA. They are the department of Education. They are the Affirmative Action people. They are the Alphabet Agencies. They are the regulators. They “know” what is best. They are the rulers, so they think. For the moment they are the current tyrants despoiling the land and the people.

          • Dienekes

            Yep. That thin-lipped. sour old female Party member in that scene is the role model for generations of government minions.

        Daily Reader, long time lurker.

        I agree with you,but with one small correction. The age of “consent” in Ohio is 16. And has been for decades.

        The age of “majority” is 18.

        The legal drinking age is 21.

      • Deplorable B Woodman

        eon,
        I would have replied to “it”, that when he can afford to buy my house, AT MY PRICE, as well as pay all the utilities, taxes, etc, then he can have as many damned people living in it as he wants.
        Oh, and BTW, how large of a place do YOU live in, and with how many people?

        That “(in)social worker” sounds like the kind of person, if I were a peace officer, I’d be slow to respond to a call to. Even if I were just down the block.

          While I would have responded to ANYONE who would “get on me about my house” with a swift kick in the ass and a warning to never approach my virtual or literal private space again.

    There is no more contemptible a racist than a white person racist against his own.

    Except of course, for a weak, feminized cuck of a white person racist against his own kind.
    But I repeat myself.

    Such creatures are exhibit A of the need to cull the herd. I find myself torn on whether the suitable method would be a bullet to the head or a pike driven from the opposite direction. But there is no question that come such a mass culling, it ought to be televised via CNN. Karmic justice make for good ratings.

    • TJ

      A couple of days ago, I ran across the suggestion of being required to copy the Constitution a thousand time.

      Not exactly culling the herd, but appropriate for those whose only crimes are thought – or rather, thoughtless – crimes.

      That said, I would modify the process by changing from hand copy (in longhand script, as most of them could also use the penmanship practice) of just the Constitution 1000 times to handcopying each of the following from one (for longer documents) to 20 (for smaller documents) times:

      The Magna Carta (20x+)
      The Virginia Declaration of Rights (20x+)
      The Declaration of Independence (20x+)
      The Constitution (20x+) complete with the Records of the Federal Convention (http://oll.libertyfund.org/titles/farrand-the-records-of-the-federal-convention-of-1787-vol-1) 1x, The Federalist (with key letters copied 10x, the bulk 1x), AND the Anti-Federalist (ditto).
      The writings of Burke, Jefferson, Madison, and the underlying writings of Montegue (1x each).

      I would then require each person to construct, using ONLY the documents above, a 100,000 word essay opposing their prior positions.

      Rehabilitation is better for the soul than death, and the justice is just as karmic (if substantially slower than 1010 fps at 124 grains…)

      • AlphaMike

        You make the genteel but misguided assumption that we’re dealing with the corrigible. We are not, and the sooner we disabuse ourselves of this notion, the better for those of us who have no need to hand copy any of the foundational documents we already embody.

        Culling is the only viable option, and the only effective public example. As with muzzie terrorists, it is the only thing they understand.

        • eon

          I’ve worked with people from the State Department of Corrections when one of their “clients” out on parole “blotted his copybook”. Generally meaning, committed the same kind of felony that got him socked in the slammer to begin with.

          The Rehabilitation types tended to be the fuzzy-haired progressives of both genders, unless they were sleek L.A. Law lawyer types. They were constantly at odds with the Corrections people, who mainly got blamed for the Rehab peoples’ Eff-Ups.

          The main problem being that the criminals tended to be not merely prone to criminal activity, but proud of it. They were Fighting the Man, and all that. And the minority ones would give the Corrections people the “Yo’ not like me, yo’ don’ unnerstan’ me, dis my culture and yo’ got no right to tell me it’s wrong” thing. (I’ve personally heard that one.)

          All leading to an old Corrections saying, which is only a joke in the sense of its somewhat quirky grammar;

          “How in the Hell are you supposed to

          ‘rehabilitate’ somebody who has never been ‘habilitated’ to

          begin with?”

          Thirty-plus years down the road, I’m still waiting to hear a good answer to that one.

  • Bill G

    Here’s a term I’ve found appropriate for the type of gummint intrusion we’re seeing far too often today:

    Ukase
    noun
    1(in tsarist Russia) a decree with the force of law.
    1.1 An arbitrary or peremptory command.
    Origin
    From Russian ukaz ‘ordinance, edict’, from ukazatʹ ‘show, decree’.

    From the Oxford English Dictionary’s online presence.

    • eon

      One definition of government is “an entity which can make laws and pronounce edicts allowing it to do anything which you cannot prevent by any means short of the use of force.”

      Needless to say, this handily explains why governments disarm their citizenry.

      Add in government bureaucrats’ tendency to conclude that they are GODS, and that whatever they want to do is right just because they want to do it, and you end up with the kind of people who do drugs on the job, become enamored of exotic philosophies like “deep ecology”, and are quite capable of ordering some defenseless “peasant” done in because some “agency” wants their land or whatever. (See “Bureau of Land Management”, aka the “Original BLM”.)

    They are a tribe. A cult. They need to get that “foxhole” experience to bond with their comrades. They need to FEEL that they are part of the CAUSE.

      So this is their game plan?

      1. reject muslim ban 2. protect immigrants (redundant)
      3. protect abortion 4. don’t defund planned parenthood (redundant)
      5. protect scotus (I’m down with that one, not quite as they intend)

      That’s it? Oh, then there’s this; raise your voices and keep on twittering.

      Well if that’s their foxhole, shouldn’t take much of a grendade to blow ’em out.

      But then of course you’ve got their actual handlers, financiers, enablers, promoters, celebriturds…and something somewhere that is behind it all. These foxhole ‘flakes are just the eloi, the visible media presence; there is no “there” there. But the entities I mention have the money (always follow the money), the infrastructure, and the agenda to destroy us. We can’t -for the sake of our children and the republic we can’t- allow that, whatever it takes.

      • JTC

        You can actually read that game plan as replacing us…unlimited influx of “others” while actively killing off their own replacements.

        But again, these are the thoughtless sheeple being herded by those with a definite agenda of self-perpetuation and who are only a “bloc” in their desperation to Dump Trump…lefty pols, media, academics, celebrities, even scientists to the degree that they are dependent on universities which as I’ve said before is just self-perpetuation, to which Trump absolutely is their greatest threat.

        But they are naïve to this fact; the evil godhead whose ultimate goal they serve will have no more use for them once their purpose served, as they do for the masses of sheep…or more importantly to them, for you and I. I’ve said it ad nauseum, “educated” people sure can be dumb…deplorables not so much.

      As always they parade their group “rights” as a way to power.

      When you say they are opposed to America as a bloc you are dead on, because We the People are _not_ “the masses” of Marx and Lenin.
      We the People must always be counted, and as individuals, not commodities.

    Cultural marxism coming to fruition reminds me of skunk cabbage… it grows in a swamp, puts down deep contractile roots, self-generates heat and sticks something awful, especially if disturbed. Once established, it’s difficult to get rid of and there is no discernable good use for it.
