Public School District in Michigan Robocalls for Petition to Recall Governor
Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 7/13/2011 | Jack Spencer

Posted on 07/13/2011 7:32:29 AM PDT by MichCapCon

A public school district in Michigan has used its phone alert system to point voters toward the recall effort against Gov. Rick Snyder. In early June, shortly after the Snyder recall reached the petition-gathering phase, the alert system for Lawrence Public Schools sent out the following robocall to residents of the district:

“This is a message from the Lawrence Public Schools (inaudible) alert system. This is an informational item and not directly associated with the school. Concerned parents interested in cuts to education . . . we're here to inform you that there is information about the problem. Also, be advised that there is a petition to recall Governor Snyder. If you want, stop by Chuck Moden's house right by the school June 7th/8th between 3:30 and 4:00 pm. Thank you. Goodbye.”

That should be a criminal use of public property. I don’t trust election laws as much.

Good luck pressing charges, let alone getting convictions.

They’re DemonRATS.

They’re above the law.

“[W]here there is no law, there is no liberty; and nothing deserves the name of law but that which is certain and universal in its operation upon all the members of the community.”
—Benjamin Rush, letter to David Ramsay, 1788

What else would a government school promote? Socialized schooling is the problem. We need to do away with socialized schooling and replace it with a capitalist system where the market can fix the problems.

Why would anyone expect classroom bureaucrats and their union to think and act any differently than any other bureaucrat and his union?

> Socialized schooling

Exaclty.

The “school district” is more correctly understood as a “school collective”.

A cooperative is voluntary.

A collective is not.

“Compulsory Attendance” laws are part of the Prussian Education System promoted by Horace Mann in the 1850s.

The whole-scale adoption of the Prussian Education System in the US during the late 19th and early 20th centuries constituted a rejection of the distributed, Christian-based education model promoted by Noah Webster.

To say the least, this was a big mistake.

It was a minor step to move from the Prussian Education System to the Marxian School Collective, which prevails in the U.S. today.

You’re right on all counts.

More people need to realize that eliminating socialized schooling would be a real blessing to the country.

And nothing will happen to them. You know it, I know it, and they know it. They knew it when they pulled this stunt.

You left off Mitch Daniels.

He was doing all this before it became fashionable.

16 years of Evan Bayh and his successors was mostly wiped away.

Its time to eliminate all these agencies that are using tax dollars to directly aid democrats. In fact I think a good many of their leaders should be charged criminally.

Exactly. You have a couple of links to videos, CC, re Hitler and the Soviet Story....

Pubbies, defund the EPA, whose guidelines and regs set up the Missouri River floods. People died AND WILL STARVE.

0bama has walked out of a meeting with Boehner/Cantor, et all. Now he says he doesn’t care if his Presidency goes down. He is forcing people to choose between HIM and the United States of America’s sovereignty and economic future.

Ah yes, “Excellence in all we do, service before self......” I see 0bama is reversing these USAF mission principles.

Its all coming together and the GOP had better get very vocal real fast. All these taxpayer funded agencies no longer remotely serve the people, they serve their master in the white house.

Third Reich - The Rise

I also stumbled across this interesting page the other day while looking for info on book burning.

Nazi schooling

Nazi scientists, educated before Hitler, complained they were hindered in developing new super-weapons by the recruitment of graduates from the Nazified school system. German Army leaders also complained that young officer candidates displayed "a simply inconceivable lack of elementary knowledge."

They didn't even know enough to capitalize the first letter of a proper name. But for Hitler, these shortcomings really didn't matter. The school system now produced what he needed – unquestioning young men ready to obediently serve the Fatherland unto death amid Nazi slogans such as: Believe, Obey, Fight!


Sounds frighteningly familiar doesn't it?

That’s not even all of the czars.

Cameron Davis is great lakes czar and special advisor to the EPA. He came from the alliance for the great lakes which wants to remove all the dams in the greatlakes watershed and move the people back from wetlands outside of “buffer zones”.

Then there are the conservation groups that get federal grants and are now passing themselves off as “sportsmen” and attacking republicans.

There must be hundreds of billions of dollars being stolen from the taxpayers to be used against us.
