Roundup

25 rich and famous athletes who went broke — bad advisors, greed and bad decisions happen to non-athletes as well.  Lots of lessons there.

Taking back the schools — Now teachers are getting fired just for being conservative. 

The Left’s stranglehold on education is going almost completely unchallenged, which is one of the Right’s greatest failings, and nothing less than a dereliction of duty by federal, state, and local Republican parties. No attempt to truly advance conservative ideas or repair the damage the Left has done to this country will be complete without a full-blown offensive to restore integrity, accuracy, and fair-mindedness to the schools. Millions of children are being taught to accept at face value false premises about our form of government, historical falsehoods presented as fact, a laundry list of supposed sins tarnishing the image of their country, and other core tenets of liberalism.

A transcript from a presentation by a GLSEN group (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network) —  Warning: Very graphic (though I can’t miss the irony that I reflexively warn adult readers of how gross this link is while at the same time these GLSEN leaders thought the conversations were completely appropriate for your kids).  They claim to be all about preventing bullying, but read this link then know for certain what a despicable lie that is.

These clubs are revolting and have no use in schools. They use the Trojan Horse of being anti-bullying to get them in. But why have sex clubs just for that? All you need is a simple and thoroughly enforced anti-bullying policy: If you physically or verbally harass other students on or off school grounds you will have swift and serious consequences. It doesn’t matter if you are bullying because they are gay/straight/fat/thin/smart/dumb/pretty/ugly/etc., or if it is just because you are a mean jerk.

I defy Joanne and the other GLSEN defenders to go through every word of that link then come back here with a straight face and defend it and tell me again why I should believe that these groups are just about bullying.  Then again, when people support perversions like this why should we be surprised when they lie about it?


You know you’ve won a debate on abortion when the pro-abort resorts to the worst kind of moral relativism and religious bigotry. When another commenter asked if the author accepted any intrinsic difference in the values of a calf fetus and a human fetus, the blogger replied:

There are two differences: Biologically, obviously a calf fetus is structurally different to a human fetus. And socially, the majority conventionally view humans as being of more value than animals.

But fundamentally, the way I see it is that we derive the social difference from our ability to relate to these different species. And we all have different views on the matter. For instance, monotheistic religious people tend to see humans as basically superior to all other lifeforms. Personally I have a far more complex view than that. Some people, such as vegans, don’t see any ethical difference at all between killing humans and killing animals.

What is even more sad is that the blogger was pretending to be taking the abortion debate seriously.  It is amazing what people will say to justify the unjustifiable.  They pretend to be pro-science but go into non sequitor mode as soon as you remind them of the scientific fact that a new human life begins at conception.

  1. The gay movement can’t justify its own agenda by its own merit. That is why they always try to ride the coattails of the Civil Rights Movement, anti-bullying laws, and other to get a leg in the legal system. Wolves in sheep’s clothing I say.

  2. That education article made be want to pour a drink just to cope. Awful.

    Fortunately, he may have a career at this school:

    Part of the school’s recruiting poster states: ““We are looking for hard working people who believe in free market capitalism. . . . Multi-cultural specialists, ultra liberal zealots, and college-tainted oppression liberators need not apply.””

    Sometimes you read an article and wish it were shorter. That is one of the few articles I’ve read lately that makes me sad that it had to end.

  3. I think the problem is that you know when you’ve won a debate on abortion because you just announce that you’ve won.

    I ended the debate because we don’t have any respect whatsoever for each other’s intellectual approaches (as I said, you think I’m a heathen, I just think you’re deluded). The things that you and I believe in are so completely opposed that any debate we might have with each other can only end with an agreement to disagree, because we’re not even arguing the same points.

    Still, no hard feelings, eh?

    1. I took your arguments seriously and pointed out where they were false. I don’t have to sway you, though hopefully you consider the arguments seriously. I am glad to have the middle ground see the opposing views.

      Yes, no hard feelings. Visit anytime.
