  • Debunking "The Story of Stuff" with the truth (VIDEO)

    05/14/2009 7:58:52 AM PDT · by mfnorman · 6 replies · 886+ views
    Apparently the apocalyptic, doom-and-gloom, sky-is-falling liberal left is at it again with one of their anti-capital, America-hating indoctrination videos again, just like Al Gore and his "An Inconvenient Truth". "The Story of Stuff" is a huge Internet sensation and is now being shown around the country in our tax-funded public schools with the intent of scaring the hell out of the minds of our children about capitalism and America. Here is something that I hope becomes another Internet sensation. This video comes to us from the good folks at "How the World Works". It's the first part of their installment...
  • Poll: Is A School Assignment To Plot Terrorist Attack Appropriate?

    Students in Pueblo, Colorado have been given a homework assignment to come up with a terrorist attack for history class. Naturally, the school is saying that the kids misinterpreted the assignment, and that any kid who plots an attack on the school will be punished. They are destroying the assignments as we speak. Is an assignment like this appropriate for school? Take the poll at the link.
  • A Cautionary Video About America’s ‘Stuff’ (brainwashing in schools)

    New York Times ^ | May 10, 2009 | Leslie Kaufman
    The thick-lined drawings of the Earth, a factory and a house, meant to convey the cycle of human consumption, are straightforward and child-friendly. So are the pictures of dark puffs of factory smoke and an outlined skull and crossbones, representing polluting chemicals floating in the air. Which is one reason “The Story of Stuff,” a 20-minute video about the effects of human consumption, has become a sleeper hit in classrooms across the nation. The video is a cheerful but brutal assessment of how much Americans waste, and it has its detractors. But it has been embraced by teachers eager to...

    Samir Al-Salimawi wore a suit to school Wednesday. The second-grader called it his funeral suit because he wore it to his grandmother’s funeral. That was a big day. This is a big day, too. In November, Samir and some other children at Clinton Elementary School drew pictures and wrote letters to their new president. Twelve of their submissions ended up in a book. Wednesday, the book ended up at their school. One copy of “Dear President Obama: Letters of Hope from Children Across America” for each published grade-school author. A copy came for the boss of Lincoln’s schools, Susan Gourley,...

    Orange (WTNH) - Some school kids in Orange are learning about the world we live in and how they can ensure it will be "green" as they get older. The Goddard School cares for children from 6-weeks old to 6-years old. Some of the little kids in the mobile infant room at the school used paint to make their hand prints on the world. The green paint symbolizes their carbon footprint on the environment. In the room next door smaller children use blue paint. The school is doing all the activities as part of the World Wildlife Fund's 2009 Earth...

    RALEIGH -- Home-school groups and conservatives across the country are infuriated by a Wake County judge's declaration that he will make a North Raleigh mother stop teaching her children at home and send them to public schools. As part of a continuing divorce case, Wake District Court Judge Ned Mangum said last Friday that it would be in the "best interests" of Venessa Mills' three children to go to public school this fall. Mangum said at the hearing that while the children are "thriving," they need to be exposed to the "real world." "It will do them a great benefit...
  • Gay 'Romeo and Julian' school play called 'political correctness' gone mad

    A British school that staged a gay version of Romeo and Juliet - called Romeo and Julian - has been accused of 'mind-blowing' political correctness. The play, which was performed by teenagers at a mixed school in east London to coincide with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered (LGBT) History Month, has caused a stir in parliament. Drama teacher Jo Letson reworked Shakespeare's play to challenge 'homophobia and homophobic bullying'. The version was praised by actor Sir Ian McKellen when he saw it last month, reports The Telegraph. Calling for a debate on political correctness during questions on upcoming Commons business,...

    Why is religion taboo in American schools? Christian attorney John Whitehead addresses that question. "God has become THE four-letter word in most public schools in the United States," says Whitehead, founder of The Rutherford Institute. And he explains in a commentary why that has come to pass: "An elite segment of society that views God as irrelevant has come to predominate." (View video commentary) Whitehead gained his legal insights into the phenomenon through the many cases of religious discrimination that have crossed his desk. "What's happened is [that] the elitists -- the people who run American society, from the public...

    WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Seven people — including one clutching a Bible — passionately objected on Tuesday to a proposal that would form a Gay-Straight Alliance club at Waynesboro Area Senior High School. Just as many people were on the other side of the argument, with several of them highlighting strides in unity demonstrated just eight hours earlier on a national scale. “It just seems really important to acknowledge today of all days that we have our first African-American president and how much we’re growing as a country,” said Stephanie Kober, a resident of Clayton Avenue.

    Pornography Prep Schools by: Daniel Allen, January 16, 2009 What did your sixth grader learn at school today? There is a good chance that she learned how to use a condom, or learned about homosexual relations from a gay activist. Or maybe it was a more innocent lesson about the importance of jihad, and how to pray to Allah. Tomorrow it might be a lesson about suicide, or a class discussion about “stupid rules at home” and parental incompetence. The unfortunate truth, as documented in From Crayons to Condoms: The Ugly Truth about America’s Public Schools, a collection of stories...

    Sex and the Seminary? Posted: Tuesday, January 13, 2009 at 6:08 am ET The release of a report entitled "Sex and the Seminary" is certain to attract attention -- which is no doubt why the report was produced in the first place. In this case, the report is an attempt to push the sexual revolution through institutions designed for the training of ministers. As "Sex and the Seminary" makes clear, many liberal institutions joined the sexual revolution long ago. The report was released January 8, 2009 by the "Sexuality Education for the Formation of Religious Professionals and Clergy" project, which...

    Having been inspired by reading the President-Elect's biography to her daughter, Letrice Titus personally contacted Obama's publishers for copies of the book for Syracuse students. Some Syracuse students have something new to read in the upcoming school year. "This is really an inspiring story about a mother who [has] read about Obama to her daughter, and then trying to take that experience through the Syracuse City School District," says former City Councilman Mike Atkins. Atkins joined Letrice Titus and Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney at Bellvue and Lincoln middle schools Monday morning. "It's relevant to their lives...it's not often that...

    American teenagers lie, steal and cheat more at "alarming rates," a study of nearly 30,000 high school students concluded Monday. The attitudes and conduct of some 29,760 high school students across the United States "doesn't bode well for the future when these youngsters become the next generation's politicians and parents, cops and corporate executives, and journalists and generals," the non-profit Josephson Institute said. In its 2008 Report Card on the Ethics of American Youth, the Los Angeles-based organization said the teenagers' responses to questions about lying, stealing and cheating "reveals entrenched habits of dishonesty for the workforce of the future..."

But I just read a children's book entitled "Barack" by Johah Winter, with illustrations by AG Ford, published on September 30, 2008 by Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of Harper Collins Publishers. "Barack's" dust jacket states that it is for children ages 4-7. This book scared me very much.

    CLAREMONT, Calif. (KABC) -- There is a costume controversy in Claremont. The school board changed a decades-long tradition of students dressing up to celebrate Thanksgiving, and some parents are outraged. The tradition involves kindergarten students at Mountain View and Condit elementary schools. The kids usually dress up in costumes. Each school takes turns dressing up as pilgrims and Indians, and then join together for a Thanksgiving feast.This year, however, there is a big change. The school board decided to continue holding the feast, but they are not allowing the students to dress up. The board is concerned the Indian costumes...
