Here’s the headline from the AP
What the hell is going on these days? I don’t get it. There seems to be a huge push in the schools now to implement “anti-bullying” campaigns and to continue to wussify our kids. You know why bullying is so pervasive? Because of the freakin’ zero-tolerance policies. When I was growing up – we were taught that if anyone tries to bully you – you beat the shit out of the kid – he/she won’t bully you any longer. Now – the bully gets away with it over and over again because if you defend yourself in this zero-tolerance atmosphere – the victim gets suspended too if he fights back. What the hell kind of justice is that? It’s liberalism. In the real world – you have the right to defend yourself. In the liberal public school system – there is no justification.
Now – moving on – this was thrown out there:
Some 13 million students, about a third of all those attending school, are bullied every year, the White House said.
I do research for a living – I couldn’t find a single study anywhere out there that came up with this number. What I found consistently in many reports – and most of them were longevity studies – only about 9 – 13% of the subject students were either bullied, victims, or both. That’s hardly 33%. Is there any wonder why the U.S. is falling further and further behind the rest of the world in academics? Rather than actually teaching the kids how to read, write, and do arithmetic – they’re focusing on silly shit like tolerance, anti-bullying, being eco-friendly, and all kinds of other peripheral shit that will not help our kids.
If I’m not mistaken – these liberals practically worship Darwin and do absolutely everything they can to keep God out of our schools. Again, if I’m not mistaken – it was Darwin’s observation that only the strong and fit survive. All this wussy shit they are teaching the kids in school is upsetting that balance. You beat the shit out of a bully and the bullying stops. They’re messing up the inherent social hierarchy by not allowing “victims” to defend themselves against these bullies. Bullies would NEVER be at the top of that hierarchy if it weren’t for zero tolerance. In my day – bullies got pushed to the bottom of the pile where they belonged. Not any longer -
Bullies, seven percent of the students, are psychologically strong.
“Bullies are popular and respected: they are considered the ‘cool’ kids,” said Jaana Juvonen, UCLA professor of psychology, and lead author of “Bullying Among Young Adolescents: The Strong, the Weak and the Troubled,” published in the December issue of the journal Pediatrics. “They don’t show signs of depression or social anxiety and they don’t feel lonely.
Like I said – they fucked up the social hierarchy and now the bullies reign supreme in our school systems – is there any real wonder how this happened? My dad taught me to never back down from a bully and to beat the snot out of them….I teach my kids the same thing. My older kids were suspended a couple times for defending themselves against bullies. My one son would come home pissed off because some kids at school kept messing with him. This is what I told him:
You give them and the school three chances. The next time it happens, you tell them if they don’t leave you alone you’re gonna beat the shit out of them – then you go tell the school administrator to keep them away from you or you will defend yourself and beat the shit out of them. You only have to do that three times (FYI – being the big baseball fan that I am – I believe in the “three strikes and your out” theory). If you gave them three warnings and you notified the school three times – when it happens the fourth time – defend yourself and don’t let up until they can’t get up.
Well – it happened a fourth time – he got jumped in the locker room by four kids – he beat the shit out of all of them. He got suspended right along with them. Needless to say – I was furious when I got called to the school to pick him up. I wasn’t mad at him – I was mad at the school – and they knew it. They actually had to bring in the School Resource Officer in the room when they tried to discuss the issue with me. When they explained the “zero tolerance” policy they had against violence – I point blank asked the officer – “If this happened off school grounds – would you arrest my son and punish him?” He said he couldn’t answer the question because he was there to enforce the school’s policy and not actually there to enforce the law. That answered my question. I also threw it back at the school for allowing it to escalate to that point because it had been reported to them three times before it actually happened.
The same thing happened to one of my other sons – I told him the same thing – three strikes and they’re out. He had a couple kids messing with him the same as my other one. They jumped him at the bus stop the fourth time – he beat the shit out both of them and got suspended right along with them. The school system isn’t about justice for the victims – it’s about giving the bullies the ability to push around whoever they want because they know the good kids won’t push back because they don’t want to get suspended.
So – Obambi – boo freakin’ hoo. You libs are the cause of the problem – and you think you can fix the problem now? Here’s how you fix it – stop punishing the victims, let the bullied defend themselves, and put God back in school again.
This has got to be one of the funniest things I have ever heard:
How freakin’ funny is that?
Ebonics has widely been described as a nonstandard variant of English spoken largely by African Americans. John R. Rickford, a Stanford University professor of linguistics, has described it as “Black English” and noted that “Ebonics pronunciation includes features like the omission of the final consonant in words like ‘past’ (pas’ ) and ‘hand’ (han’), the pronunciation of the th in ‘bath’ as t (bat) or f (baf), and the pronunciation of the vowel in words like ‘my’ and ‘ride’ as a long ah (mah, rahd).”
Detractors reject the notion that Ebonics is a dialect, instead considering it a bastardization of the English language.
Holy bastardized English, Batman! – What the HELL did he say? LOL
Additionally, while “technology plays a major role in the DEA’s efforts, much of its success is increasingly dependent upon rapid and meticulous understanding of foreign languages used in conversations by speakers of languages other than English and in the translation, transcription and preparation of written documents.”
This Ebonics crap has really gotten out of hand when you need the government needs to hire a linguist in order to figure out what American criminals are saying. Is it any wonder that our school systems are failing? They actually TEACH Ebonics in many inner-city schools around this country. Rather than educate the African-Americans and other inner-city kids and elevate their English skills – they just continue to dumb them down – to the point now where our Federal government needs a freakin’ translator!
Is this really funny or is it a sad commentary about our education system and society?
Quite the week we’ve had so far! Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, and now Billy Mays all dead. Unfreakin’ believable! I wish piece of shit crap and tax bill would have died as well! Anyway – after a two week hiatus – The BoBo Carnival of Politics is back with another great edition. Have at it people!
You’ll see below in response to your credit card discussion that I mentioned I already paid off a few cards and have one left before I’m out of debt. I went through the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University. Dave Ramsey is awesome and what you have on your blog is absolutey right. Once again, great post using a great resource. I highly recommend it to anybody to view his Town Hall video and his Financial Peace University – especially in today’s economy.
Michael Bass presents Joe Tegerdine VS Gene Taylor! The Battle For Mississippi’s 4th Congressional District! posted at Debt Prison, saying, “Every now and then a person runs for office that gives us hope. For many voters in the last election Barack Obama was that person. Obama promised ambiguous ‘Change’ and the people bought it. Unfortunately, for many Obama fans and devout Democrats, his foreign policy actions and his further crack down on civil liberties has come to resemble something like George Bush part II.”
Interesting – hopefully, Tegerdine turns out to be a true conservative then maybe he can defeat that faux Democratic Conservative Taylor.
LSM – excellent. I have nothing further to add to this.
Scott Spiegel presents U.S. Invents Diabolical Weapon Called “Twitter” to Bring Down Iranian Regime posted at Scott Spiegel, saying, “President Obama said last week that he doesn’t want the U.S. to be seen as “meddling” in the recent Iranian presidential election. In his view, vocally supporting the protesters is comparable to the CIA’s coup against Mossadeq in 1953.”
Amen, brother! We should be standing behind the Iranian citizens with the full faith and trust of our government and our own citizens. Obama is wrong on this one.
Mad Kane – I’m sure I don’t need to say this – personally – I think this needs to be repealed entirely and have it back to what it was before Clinton instituted the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. The UCMJ states that sodomy is a punishable offense as is any other forms of homosexual relations. We don’t need gays OPENLY serving in the military. This would be a huge bust for the morale of our military. I’m sorry – but – the military is by no means ready for this and it would not be accepted.
Bwahaha – Liberty Lentils – good one.
Bob Brooks presents Wall Street Execs Living Large While the Rest of the Country Hurts posted at Bob Brooks – Prudent Money Blog.
Don’t forget – Timothy “Turbo Tax” Geithner is a Goldman Sachs alumni himself and still has buddies there. Nothing will be done. Just more paybacks from this administration for these company’s providing material support for Obama.
I don’t generally tend to side with Ron Paul on many issues. I think he’s a nutjob with a lot of his positions. However, I support him 100% with regards to doing away with the Federal Reserve and having them open their books. The decision in the 30′s to hand over that much power to a private organization was by far one of the most idiotic things this country and our government has ever done. It’s time to take that power away from them.
Terri Choate presents Trickle Down Learning posted at Plum Duff…not your ordinary gruel!, saying, “Maybe this is old news…but school districts regularly understate the money spent per pupil as they ask for more, more, more.”
Great article. Public schools happens to be one of my “soap-box” issues. While I don’t know what the per pupil cost is in my district – we have multiple layers of administration that are totally unnecessary. Since when does a High School and Middle School need a freakin Assistant Principle for each grade and each of them having a secretary, etc etc – not to mention each grade having at least 2 “administrators” that handle discipline. It’s gotten so ridiculous that most of our tax money goes to paying salaries instead of purchasing text books. I sent four kids through public school. 2 graduated and 2 dropped out. I’m sending my last 2 to private schools now.
Welcome Back Bradley – looking forward to your analysis of the various bills.
The Smarter Wallet presents Applying For A Credit Card? Review The Credit Card Bill of Rights posted at The Digerati Life, saying, “Obama just signed into law some regulations that will help curb some of the unpopular practices done by the credit industry. Here’s what’s in the credit card bill of rights, which is under review by our government.”
Great words of advise for those who are thinking about getting a credit card. I already cut up all mine and have paid them off. I have one more to go then I’m out of credit card hell. My advise is – use cash! If you can’t afford to pay for it in cash – well – then in today’s economy – you really can’t afford it at all then. Save for it instead.
You are absolutely right – we should not be looking to the international community to protect ourselves. That is just plain ridiculous. Great post.
Naomi – I’ll have to admit that I haven’t been paying real close attention to exactly what is going on over on your side of the big pond. However, I have been following Daniel Hannen pretty closely so I get the point. Unfortunately, we’re seeing a similar situation here in the U.S. – rather than second homes – our politicians get lifelong benefits and 100% salary after they retire and that even gets passed on to their spouses after they die and then the spouses collect 100% benefit and salary until they die. Pretty freakin ridiculous that these politicians consider themselves so elite they can steal from we the people.
Agreed! However, this administration that promised transparency has given us none at all.
Jake presents Why the World Hates America (Part 1) posted at Global Implications, saying, “Given the negative attitude toward the United States around the world, I am writing a multi-part series on the actions of the US since World War II with the worst consequences. I will post an article every day and should finish the seven-part series on Friday, June 26.”
Jake – I hope you don’t mind but I took the liberty to post the links to the remaining articles. This is a very interesting analysis. However, I would say that we still have many more friends and allies than we do enemies. It seems our only real enemies in the world are radical regimes. Please post up the last remaining parts in next week’s carnival! Personally, regarding Part 5 – I think we need to “unflinchingly” support Israel. They are our only true ally in the middle east. Being a former Hebrew Linguist in the Air Force – I understand Israel and the day-to-day struggles they have to face. They are under constant terrorist attack every day. They need our support and we should stand behind them all the way.
Ram – you are so totally right on with this post. The only thing I would add here is that the history of Political Correctness actually has its roots in marxism and Russia. Here’s another good resource for you on the history.
