    Being in Normandy, France, I thought this little number would be appropriate. I present: The French Mistake!

    #20 IS the combination for Druidia

    “Dr. Eugene McCarthy’s stunning claims were made in an online article, although it was not clear when the startling findings was initially published.”
    My bet is they were first published on April 1st.

    @ARCHAICSEAL Yes in fact there IS a program to get an Obama gun. AG Holder is running it. The main requirement is that you need to be a member of a Mexican drug cartel.

    @LT_Scrounge I don’t think you read my post. This is about a select group of parents wanting to be big fish in a little pond. Its about getting extra grant money for construction of an already built school. In addition, it doesn’t matter how great a teacher is when parents tell children that education is for gringos or uncle toms those kids will not put any effort into learning. The vast majority of kids at this school are minorities and their parents don’t give a rat’s behind about education. That is the problem. Unfortunately for the kids, its politically incorrect to point this out, so the blame falls on the union and the school board. If Desert Trails were to go charter, as you suggest and support, the kids failing there now would get kicked out and bused to another public school where they would fail as well because their parents refuse to support their education. The problem is too many parents believe that school is for white kids and as a result the children of these people put no effort into school and drag everyone else down.

    That’s odd, since the CTA (teachers’ union) at the school this film is supposedly based on (Desert Trails elementary) supports ASES- an after school tutoring/extra-curricular education program. ASES features homework time and assistance and classes in everything from algebra to zumba dance. My 11yr old son and 8yr old daughter attend Desert Trails and are in its ASES program.

    Yes! Tenure should be eliminated and teachers rated on the improvement of their students. Unions by and large have grown to top heavy and quota driven. However the film this article is about is missing the point in the Adelanto Desert Trails battle (its my kids’ school). But like TVTropes says “Inspired by actual events” really means “Has nothing to do with actual events”.

    Thanks for seeking out those of us on the other side of the Desert Trails fight, Blaze. I’m a Desert Trails parent. I’m no fan of the CTA (California teachers’ union) but the Parent Union group (supported by Parent Revolution) is a power grab by a group of parents. Doreen Diaz (a parent mentioned in your article) presided over a PTA with thousands of dollars gone missing according to this year’s audit. Secondly, the Parent Union used 2 petitions to get the required percentage of signatures- but they were different. One was for school reforms (signed by most parents) the other to replace the school with a charter. A bait and switch tactic was used on those parents signing for reforms that didn’t want a charter.
    Secondly, the trigger law in CA allows the same start up grants offered to build a charter to organizations taking over existing schools. This allows the Parent Union to line more pockets- mostly their own.
    I’m in favor of charter schools, but as an alternative to regular schools, not as a replacement for them. Students who don’t want to learn and apathetic parents cause bad education. They get kicked out of charter schools. Turning Desert Trails into a charter won’t help struggling kids with apathetic or aloof parents one little bit.

    @ExRepublisheep- Have you not seen the plethora of news stories where kids who DID bring lunch to school had it confiscated so they would eat a “properly nutritious” lunch?
    here:
    http://www.abc2news.com/dpp/news/national/students-lunch-taken-away-for-not-being-nutritious-enough
    and here:
    http://now.msn.com/jenkins-clifton-jones-student-has-peanut-butter-and-jelly-sandwich-confiscated
    are two examples.

    The New York Post has confirmed the Blind Sheikh story. Looks like the lefties jumped the gun again.

    Better send Remo in to check it out.

    @AVENGERK
    That’s why Obama is hiding the real birth certificate. Its not where he was born (Hawaii) its that the real certificate lists Obama’s race as white. The media can’t let that nasty cat out of the bag.

    That movie was based on the Shirley Jackson short story written over 60 years ago (1948). As far as televised contests to the death is a future post-war/disaster America go. I think I saw that one when it was called the Running Man.

    All farmed tomatoes are genetically modified. Generations of farmers used selective breeding and cross-pollination to create the large tomatoes we know and love. Otherwise we would only have dark green little grape and cherry sized tomatoes. Dark tomatoes aren’t that strange either since the tomato’s closest relative in the produce department is the eggplant.

    To clarify it was actually recovered from a shipwreck dating between 100-150BC of the island of Antikythera.
    On the other hand, they build some awfully nice motorcycles in Iowa.

    There was also a brass gear-driven computer believed to be a navigation aid recovered from an excavation of ancient Greek ruins. This is believed to be the first computer, albeit a crude one.

    @Erik The state ABC agencies were around for many years before the ATF ever existed. The ATF, just like the federal Education department is redundant to pre-existing state agencies and is another means of centralizing control and usurping the 10th amendment.

    Cain tweaked the left again yesterday by pointing out Margaret Sanger’s racist beliefs behind her founding of Planned Parenthood. This will trump the harassment charges in no time!

  • August 26, 2011 at 7:49pm

    Exactly! This was the original point of the ATF exercise- to fabricate a supposed need to curtail gun ownership in the US through more stringent gun control laws.

    @Chris260:
    I agree with almosteverything you said. But I do not believe Cain will pull in the African American vote. In black culture educated, articulate and successful people are called ‘Uncle Tom’ and looked down upon. Unfortunately I feel the majority of African Americans will heed the words of people like Sharpton and Jackson and vote for Obama again.
