Common Core Rant

I just CAN’T. I can’t sit back any longer and say nothing. I can’t not call out the complete insanity of this Common Core Math. Please explain to me in what CRAZY, BACKWARDS, MAKE BELIEVE WORLD this makes any sense? Look at the math problem below and keep reading. Math is FACT! Fact is 103 – 28 is ACTUALLY 75. As in actually, factually and yes, reasonably. In this scary world of FAKE MATH, 75 is not the correct answer?! In order for the answer to be REASONABLE, we need to estimate and come up with the WRONG answer?!?! WTF? This math belongs in the world of unicorns and leprechauns. Not in the real world… where numbers matter! Think about it These are our future doctors that will be prescribing “reasonable” doses of medication, future architects that will design on “reasonable” measurements, and future engineers that will build on “reasonable” plans! Exact answer are ALWAYS better that estimation. So we penalize for exact answers. This is exactly why our country is losing so much ground on so many levels. Home school is NOT starting to look so bad right about now. But a serious change in our education system is absolutely necessary. We cannot build a future on this kind of thinking. Please share this post if you agree! You may also like our recent post on “The Real Truth About Our Education System”. You can read it by clicking... read more

The Real Truth About Our Education System

Let’s talk about education. In most Western countries, school is compulsory and state-enforced. Truancy can result in fines or even jail time for parents. This isn’t just a result of state coercion. On a cultural level, education holds a sacred status much like that of religion. It’s an institution that most never question, and that’s a problem. Did you ever wonder how it is that kids spend 13 years from kindergarten to high school supposedly being prepared for life yet when they get out, they don’t have any real skills? 13 years and kids aren’t taught how to grow a garden, how to build a house, how to fix a car, how to balance a checkbook, or how to cook a healthy meal. 13 years and kids come out without even rudimentary concepts of how to organize or lead groups of people. Without even a glimmer of understanding of how to resolve conflicts nonviolently. And we call this an education? Yes, we’re taught how to read and write and to perform some basic math. But we aren’t taught how to think for ourselves. We aren’t taught the principles of logic or how to question an ideology. What we are taught is how to sit in a desk and listen obediently as the world is packaged into a neat little box that we are to accept without question. We’re taught to regurgitate that information for tests, to give the answer that those in authority demand, but most of all, we’re conditioned to conform. And the reward for faithfully jumping through all of these hoops for 13 years is a worthless piece of paper that no employer even asks to see. Kids exit high school barely qualified to flip burgers at McDonald’s. And even for that, they have to be trained. 13 years is a long time. That’s most of our childhood. To have this much time taken by force with such pathetic results is unacceptable. The problem here isn’t a lack of funding. The problem here isn’t poorly trained teachers, lax regulations, or low quality curriculum. The problem is our entire educational paradigm. The system isn’t designed to prepare children for the real world. It’s designed to format their minds and condition them for a life of subservience. It’s designed to create a population of individuals just smart enough to fill out paperwork and punch a time card but too stupid to question the system itself or the authority of... read more

Read This Before the Governemnt and Media Uses a Drowned Refugee Boy to Start Another War

You’ve seen the pictures floating around Facebook. A picture of a 3 year boy washed up on the shore, face down in the mud. His family, refugees from Syria’s civil war, had tried to reach Greece, but their over-crowded raft overturned in the Mediterranean Sea and he drowned along with his brother and mother. The viral image of 3-year-old Aylan Kurdi’s lifeless little body on a Turkish beach has shaken the conscience of the West and wrenched America’s attention to the refugee crisis now rocking Europe. Newsflash to the oblivious citizenry of the power-projecting “free world”: this is what war looks like. This times ten million. That which is mere “foreign policy” to you and your government is desperation and death to those on the receiving end of it. Children just as innocent and precious as Aylan are being driven into the sea in Libya, incinerated by drone in Pakistan, or starved to death in Yemen all the time, and it is all on your dime. And every single instance creates a sight just as achingly and horrifically tragic as the one above, even if it isn’t photographed and seen by millions. Aylan drowned in the arms of his father, who had been desperately trying to keep his head above water. The prelude to the disaster probably looked something like this photo of another Syrian refugee family. It actually shows an arrival and not a departure. Still, especially for anyone with young children, the picture is a punch in the gut. It only takes a shred of empathy to instantly imagine how the father must feel. Overwhelmed and near the end of his rope. His daughter’s arms wrapped around his neck. His son’s face buried in his chest. Both looking to him for protection and provision he ultimately might not be able to give. It is no wonder these photographs have also gone viral. Another newsflash: this is what war displacement looks like, both in the sea and on dry land. What you see in his face is the anguish felt right this very moment by the many millions of mothers and fathers driven from their homes and sources of livelihood throughout the countries shattered by weapons from the West: Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, Palestine, Ukraine, and yes.. the United States. It is a shame that the curiosity, empathy, and imagination of most are so stunted that they require such vivid imagery as this showing up in... read more

Will you STAND for liberty, or will you be silent?

“So you’re a Constitutionalist?” My first thought was… As compared to what? Last month, the Feinman family was driving through a questionable interstate checkpoint. This checkpoint is not on the US/Mexican border; it is along Highway 395N between California and Nevada. When driving through these in-country checkpoints, you are not required to answer the agent’s questions (usually starting with “Are you a United States citizen?”). Nor are you required to consent to any searches. As the Feinman’s drove through, they refused to be unlawfully searched, citing their 4th Amendment right to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures. The agents, however, could have cared less about the Feinman’s rights, stating at one point that “this is my job.” When the family refuses to back down, government force is escalated, and police officers are called in to violate the Feinmans even further. As Mr. Feinman asserts his rights, he is threatened with being pulled out of the vehicle and having his children taken from him by CPS. Mr. Feinman says he’d like to go, but these officers are determined to extort money from him (issue a citation) for flexing his rights. When he asks the cops if they swore an oath to defend the constitution, the cop asks, “So you’re a Constitutionalist?” When Feinman confirms that he is a constitutionalist, the officer responds, “We’ve had problems with this before.” At around the 13-minute mark, Feinman is issued an ultimatum, submit or have your window broken and we kidnap your entire family. During the process, these officers acted as if it were Feinman’s fault when all he was doing was refusing an illegal search. Police acted as if some magical force compelled them to have to break the window and drag a family out of their vehicle. However, the fact of the matter is, they could have just let them travel freely. Eventually, the window is smashed out, and all occupants were arrested, and the child was taken by CPS. According to the Feinman’s, they were then given an excessive bail amount to get out of jail. This entire incident was over Mr. Feinman not wanting to be searched at the checkpoint. Referring to an illegal search as an “inspection” does not change the reality of the act. What this video below highlights is the only tool the state has to force you to comply with their revenue generating and rights-violating police state measures... read more
