So my readers I have been at this for just a smidgen over two months and this will be my 100th blog. While I admit many of them are re-blogs, all of the content I have posted I care about, and I hope my words, discombobulated as they may be (YES! Spelled it right on the first try.) have guided and shaped you all in some way.
I wanted to talk today about something that is a bit old, a comment made by a woman named Melissa Harris-Perry who is a host to MSNBC.
I have no children to date. There is no personal reason for that, my wife and I both love kids and desire greatly to have one, it just hasn’t happened. That being said, I personally do not believe that my future children belong to the community. They will be my responsibility. I will feed them with my own money, I will bathe them with my own hands, and I will shape them with my own wisdom.
I am however torn. I recall stories from my grandma about how some people her parents knew would not hesitate to scold her or punish her on the spot if she was misbehaving. I long for the old days when children were behaved, had manners and followed the rules, if for no other reason than to avoid punishment from whomever catches them being bad. The thought of being able to trust others with my future children to that extent scares me some what though.
This is not the real issue with what this host said. The real issue I think is that she proposes the solution to our educational system is to remove the individual parents in exchange for some sort of communist community that rules all by all.
What do you ladies and gents think about this statement from Melissa Harris-Perry? Do your children belong to you? Should they belong to the community? Will sharing responsibility for other children improve anything concerning children?
In what can only be explained as an I told you so moment by many, Common Core has been caught with her pants down teaching liberal agendas to children.
I admit that I have not followed the Common Core issue that well, mostly due to having no children. I fully intend to home school them (when I have one) or move to another country that does not have a failing educational system, so it seemed to have very little impact on me.
After this recent attempt to instill bias into children who barely understand what a government is, I think I may personally pay attention from now on. The attempt to cleanse the brain of your children went something like this:
Teaching materials aligned with the controversial national educational standards ask fifth-graders to edit such sentences as “(The president) makes sure the laws of the country are fair,” “The wants of an individual are less important than the well-being of the nation” and “the commands of government officials must be obeyed by all.” The sentences, which appear in worksheets published by New Jersey-based Pearson Education, are presented not only for their substance, but also to teach children how to streamline bulky writing.
Here is the entire worksheet for those that want to read the full details of the assignment.
I will remind those that see no fault in this “educational practice” that it calls your children to obey commands, and that their wants are not important. Our country was founded by those tired of obeying the commands of England, and the Constitution was written to protect the individual not the nation.
All I can say is that if our government succeeds in the indoctrination of your children, then all hope for America is lost. America was built upon the back of free thinkers and revolutionaries, not the Kardasian loving sheep that the current administration is prepping for future leaders.
