Grooming the New Totalitarians… “We begin In Polk County, Florida, where students at an elementary school, a middle school and a high school had their irises scanned—without parental permission—as part of what officials are characterizing as a “student safety” program. “It simply takes a picture of the iris, which is unique to every individual,” wrote Rob Davis, the school board’s senior director of support services, in a letter sent to parents. “With this program, we will be able to identify when and where a student gets on the bus, when they arrive at their school location, when and what bus the student boards and disembarks in the afternoon. This is an effort to further enhance the safety of our students. The EyeSwipe-Nano is an ideal replacement for the card based system since your child will not have to be responsible for carrying an identification card.”

America’s younger generations are being groomed for totalitarianism.
We begin In Polk County, Florida, where students at an elementary school, a middle school and a high school had their irises scanned—without parental permission—as part of what officials are characterizing as a “student safety” program.
“It simply takes a picture of the iris, which is unique to every individual,” wrote Rob Davis, the school board’s senior director of support services, in a letter sent to parents.
Why not fire administrators and teachers who suspend five year olds for imaginary guns? « Coach is Right
There is a scene in the movie “A Bronx tale” where the father of a young man counsels his son not to attack another young man over a $20.00 debt which has gone unpaid for too long. The father explains this is a small price to discover that someone is not trustworthy. He tells his son to be glad he has been shown how untrustworthy the other man is in this minor matter. “Now you know not to trust him in the future in bigger things,” he says.
This small lesson begs the question: Why would we trust school administrators who cannot tell the difference between an imaginary “weapon” fashioned out of a cupcake and something that is genuinely dangerous?
The stories of idiots suspending second graders for pointing a finger at a playmate and saying, “Bang” were funny the first dozen times we heard them, but not anymore.

Today a Genoa-Kingston Middle School student’s parent is claiming that a teacher ordered his son to cover his US Marine themed t-shirt or be suspended. Dan McIntyre says that his son Michael has wore the shirt to school many times in the past and that he is a big fan of the branch of the US military.
Dan McIntyre says that, “A teacher noticed the guns on the shirt.” He went on to say that the teacher said there was a school policy against the image of a gun.
This ain’t gonna be another “Where I was when JFK was assassinated story.” I promise you, although that is the way it’s going to start because some rather interesting things happened right out of the box. And there ain’t many times when a very little guy like me gets a chance to see what would become the hottest documents relating to the Kennedy assassination before any other person in Washington got to see them.
That’s right. Before LBJ and even RFK. And you, the readers, are going to have to pay attention because at the very end I’m going to have a question for you. In spite of all the jillions of investigations, and the millions of pages written about the
Most readers will likely recall the recent disturbing footage of 68-year-old Karen Klein, the monitor of bus 784 servicing the Athena Middle School in the Rochester suburb of Greece, NY. A group of about four young teens bullied this woman to tears on one of the final rides of the school year.

Many see it as a symbol of hate and racism, but this teenager claims its part of her heritage, reports CBS 2’s Christine Sloan.
Torri Albrecht said Monday when she showed up to her middle school wearing a sweatshirt with the confederate flag. She said her vice principal gave her a choice:
“He said I had to take off the sweatshirt or flip it inside out or face the consequences,” Albrecht said.
Survey: Sexual harassment pervasive in grades 7-12

It can be a malicious rumor whispered in the hallway, a lewd photo arriving by cell phone, hands groping where they shouldn’t. Added up, it’s an epidemic — student-on-student sexual harassment that is pervasive in America‘s middle schools and high schools.
During the 2010-11 school year, 48 percent of students in grades 7-12 experienced some form of sexual harassment in person or electronically via texting, email and social media, according to a major national survey being released Monday by the American Association of University Women.
The harassers often thought they were being funny, but the consequences for their targets can be wrenching, according to the survey.
Nearly a third of the victims said the harassment made them feel sick to their stomach, affected their study habits or fueled reluctance to go to school at all.
“It’s reached a level where it’s almost a normal part of the school day,” said one of the report’s co-authors, AAUW director of research Catherine Hill. “It’s somewhat of a vicious cycle. The kids who are harassers often have been harassed themselves.”
We’ve been saying it for a while: The sexuality agenda is now in the elementary schools, and it’s worse than you can imagine.

President Obama took some time to answer some hardball questions from middle schoolers on Monday, telling a room full of teenagers that “growing up is stressful.”
“Look, there’s stress involved, but let me tell you something – there’s stressed involved being the principal of a middle school, there’s stress involved in being a teacher,” Obama said. “Whatever profession you choose … there aren’t that many jobs out there that you can just sit back and have fun all the time.

13-year-old Cody Alicea rides with an American flag on the back of his bike. He says he does this to be patriotic and to honor veterans, like his own grandfather, Robert. He’s had the flag on his bike for two months but Monday, was asked told to take it down. A school official at Denair Middle School told Cody some students had been complaining about the flag and it was no longer allowed on school property. “In this country we’re supposed to be free,” said Cody. “And I should be able to wave my flag wherever I want to.
And they’re telling me I can’t.” Cody’s grandfather says the school was concerned about racial tensions or uprisings because of the flag. He feels if there was really a problem it should have been brought up two months ago, not during Veterans week.
“No action should be taken. We don’t want any repercussion,” said Roger. “We just want Cody to be proud of what he’s doing.”
