. Quite frankly, I don’t want that. I want a government that is going to help me. I want a government that is going to help me fund my college education.
I want a government that won’t define me by my FAFSA or by my family’s income.
I’m a dollar sign with a heartbeat in this nation.

Hoo-wee! There’s no doubt the Mideast Charm Offensive was a huge success. When Big Guy brings his A-game, that old Hopey-Changey magic always works like a charm.
For example, whenever Big Guy channels the patron saint of community organizers, Saul “Rules for Radicals” Alinsky, it’s pure magic.
One of Alinsky’s major themes was working with the world as it “is” to turn it into the world as “it should be.”
In his defining work, “Rules for Radicals,” which he dedicated to “the first rebel,” Lucifer, Alinsky used those words to lay out his main agenda. He asserted radical change must be brought about by working within a system instead of attacking it from the outside.

Robin Ficker said a boy, a student at Roscoe R. Nix Elementary School in Silver Spring, was given a one-day suspension from school with a conference planned for when students returned from winter break for the pretend shooting a week after 20 children and six adults were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., The (Springfield, Va.) Washington Examiner reported Wednesday.
NO, YOU’RE NOT SPECIAL… (“The idiocy of social engineering in the classroom is again bearing catastrophic results.”)
The chickens have come home to roost.
The first generation of students swaddled in the insanity of the self-esteem movement have emerged on the scene as arrogant, self-absorbed twits with an exaggerated sense of entitlement and self-importance.
In short, they’ve been spoiled. Potentially, they’ve been ruined.
The idiocy of social engineering in the classroom is again bearing catastrophic results.
Here’s how we know. A group of five university professors has evaluated more than 16,000 personality profiles of college students gathered over the last 24 years. What they’ve discovered is that today’s young people have dramatically different self-concepts than the two generations which preceded them.
And the differences aren’t good.
Today’s college students are monumentally more narcissistic. That means they worship themselves. That means they’ve been told that they’re special so many times that they’ve come to believe it. In blunt terms, they think their crap doesn’t stink.
But it does. Possibly more than most.
Because one of the hallmarks of an inflated self-concept is personal failure. People who think they are superior have an uncanny tendency to be inferior. Their sense of worth is so high they have no motivation to work and improve themselves. When you think the world is yours on a silver platter, it never occurs to you that you’ve got to get off your backside and earn anything.
The study shows that children born after 1982 have a unrealistically inflated self-concepts. So high is their estimation of themselves, in fact, that they are fully narcissistic – a trait that is somewhere in the gray area between a character flaw and a personality disorder. Narcissism is such an unhealthy aberration that it is almost a mental illness.
And the self-esteem movement of the 1990s has made it epidemic.
Unfortunately, the education industry has become so divorced from reality that for several years the conventional wisdom in American classrooms has been that children – particularly poor and minority children – fail to achieve because they have negative self-concepts. The way to correct that, the argument has gone, is to pump up their self-concepts through self-esteem building. That typically translated to unrealistic and unearned praise for students, and the removal of all negative feedback and consequences from the classroom. That’s why grades are artificially high, everybody gets a smiley face and teachers don’t use red ink any more.
Schools seem incapable of recognizing that true self-worth comes from doing what’s right and from legitimate achievement. Not praise passed out like candy, but genuine achievement coming as the consequence of significant effort. You earn worth, it isn’t given out for free.
The lunacy of the education reformers was matched by the leniency of the troubled homes. Mom and dad have forgotten how to be mom and dad. Children were waited on hand and foot with no obligations of their own to work or assist the family. Permissive parenting and failed educating led to a bumper crop of egocentric creeps.
And that’s going to hurt.
Because narcissists typically fail. They fail in their responsibility to be good citizens and they fail in their responsibility to be good spouses and parents.
Being a good citizen and being part of a family requires selflessness. They require putting your own interests second to the interests of something larger and more important than yourself. To the narcissist, there is nothing more important than yourself.
That leads to employment and self-reliance difficulties, and to significant challenges to the ability to maintain a marriage and raise a family.
Remember one month ago, when a high-school junior in the Rowan-Salisbury school district in North Carolina videotaped his teacher yelling at another student that he was being disrespectful for criticizing Barack Obama and that his behavior was a criminal offense?
One of the ways to cut the big-spending binge engaged in by the federal government is to terminate the racket of college loans. It’s counterproductive, discriminatory and a bad investment for both taxpayers and students.

Plundering the American Dream: College Students Demonstrate the Idiocy of Our Education System by Mac Slavo
Economics Professor Jack Chambless of Valencia College in Florida had his sophomore students write a short essay on what the American dream means to them and what, specifically, they wanted the federal government to do to help them achieve that dream.
The results demonstrate the sheer magnitude of the idiocy of a public education system dead set on indoctrination rather than education:

(Nov. 28, 2011) — Recently I was asked to respond to an apparent ‘defense of Treason’ email by Mr. Shawn N. Jasper, Deputy Majority Leader, New Hampshire State House of Representatives, in relation to the recent unlawful ‘hearing’ by the NH Ballot Law Commission on a lawful challenge to placing an ineligible candidates’ name on the ballot in the NH presidential primary scheduled for Jan 10, 2011.
Apparently that response has ‘taken legs’, and has been distributed not only to all members of the NH State Congress (called the ‘General Court’), but to the MSM, many Sheriffs, and to the nation. Mr. Jasper’s email, and my response buried within it, appears below*, following the recently posted public response from a New Orleans, LA, college student who really gets it: Treason by any other name is still Treason…..
College Student Responds to New Hampshire Representative Who Defends Obama’s “Presidency”| The Post & Email
….., you said, referring to the patriotic fight of many American citizens to defend the Constitution, “I am sure that the President loves this stupid fight; it keeps his opposition fighting among ourselves, instead of focusing on his failed presidency and focusing on why it would be suicidal to re-elect him.” In that statement, it is clear that you consider yourself among “his opposition” who, you assert, are “fighting among ourselves.”
Whereas, in the same letter you say, “To think that we can deny the President of the United States access to our ballot is beyond belief. Take your fight to the Federal Courts and leave us alone”, making your best effort to protect the illegitimate fraud and forger, the criminal illegally occupying the Oval Office from ABROGATION. You, sir, are a hypocrite, a coward and a liar. (In view of your writing you’re not very well-educated, either.)

The video uploaded by the user “noshockdoc” shows two people who first engage in rough handling of one of the rally protesters. Then, reportedly, the same people are shown along with six others detaining someone behind a police cordon.
The media dubbed the November 9 march against tuition fees and education cuts one of the most intensively-policed events to take place in London. The force had 4,000 officers on duty on the day, and they were authorized to use rubber bullets if necessary. This was never needed, however. The Met reported that 24 arrests were made on the day.

Should public school officials have the right to prevent students from wearing pro-American garb on Cinco de Mayo?
This question has been at the heart of a California court battle between the Morgan Hill Unified School District and students who were told by a principal and assistant principal that they could not wear American flag t-shirts on the Mexican holiday back in 2010.
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.”

BUT WHAT ABOUT THOSE WHO HAVE EARNED AND PAID THEIR WAY?

(Oct. 31, 2011) — Just when we think that Obama and Biden have reached the absolute pinnacle of outrageousness, we find that they have topped themselves. Now we see Obama, in what must be the most cynical political pander of all time, traveling around the country on Air Force One, attempting to buy the votes of heavily indebted students and former students with a partial forgiveness of student loans that is estimated to be worth from $4 to $8 per month, per person, for 20 years.
Why anyone would borrow as much as $200,000 to obtain a college degree that will do little or nothing to help them find gainful employment is beyond reason. Needless to say, those who would make such a foolish bargain are bound to be Obama voters. But that’s a subject for another day.
As a way of responding to Obama’s political ploy, his “student loan stimulus,” I have decided to write him an open letter describing my own experience with higher education. See below.

College is a dangerous place for men. They are not only a minority, but they are victimized by discriminatory and unconstitutional anti-male rules.
In another striking proof that the Obama administration is totally manipulated by feminists, the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights sent out a 19-page “DCL” (Dear Colleague Letter) to colleges and universities that should make men fear attending college at all. The letter adopts the feminist theory that in all sexual controversies or accusations, the man is guilty unless he proves himself innocent.
This DCL carries the force of law, since it purports to be an additional implementation of Title IX, the 1972 federal law that bans sex discrimination in educational institutions that receive federal assistance. But the DCL was never legislated by Congress, and it was not even launched as a regulation that requires posting for comment in the Federal Register.
The DCL is just a federal order, issued by a feminist bureaucrat named Russlynn Ali, which colleges and universities must obey under threat of losing their funding. Colleges have dutifully fallen in line by spelling it out in their fall orientations under the rubric of making campuses friendly to women and requiring sensitivity about offensive words and ideas.
The most unconstitutional part of Ali’s impertinent DCL is that it orders colleges to reject use of the criminal justice standard of proof. The DCL rules that an accused man doesn’t have to be judged guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt,” or even the intermediate standard of “clear and convincing” proof.
Instead, Ms. Ali instructs colleges that they must judge an accused man based on “a preponderance of the evidence” standard. That means the campus disciplinary board (which may include feminist faculty from the Women’s Studies Department) only has to believe that the female accuser is 51 percent likely to be truthful and accurate.
Furthermore, the DCL “strongly discourages” colleges from permitting an accused man “to question or cross-examine the accuser” during the hearing. And appeals must be available to both parties, which subjects the guy to double jeopardy.
The punishment of a man convicted under these DCL rules will far exceed what the campus disciplinary committee may hand out. He will likely be expelled, barred from graduate or professional school and some government jobs, suffer irreparable damage to his reputation, and possibly be exposed to criminal prosecution.
The feminist apparatus is constantly grinding out phony statistics about sexual assault and harassment, accusations that men are naturally batterers, and that women never lie or make errors in sexual allegations. The feminists are unrepentant about the way they and the prosecutors (toadying to the feminists) accepted and publicized lies that destroyed the reputations of the Duke lacrosse men and of Dominique Strauss-Kahn.
Another monster that hangs over the heads of college students is the increasing evidence that college is a bad financial investment that will saddle students with debt they can never escape. Pro-college ads from organizations like How To E-D-U and KnowHow2Go are seductive: “College graduates can make a million dollars more in their lifetimes than those who don’t go to college.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, BLS, 17 million college-educated Americans are now working jobs for which they are overqualified. The BLS reports that hundreds of thousands of college graduates are working as waiters, secretaries, receptionists, laborers or janitors, all respectable occupations but not jobs that will enable them to repay their five- or even six-digit college loans.
The current student loan debt, now $830 billion, is bigger than credit-card debt and growing at the rate of $90 billion a year. Only 40 percent of that debt is actively being repaid, and students are not permitted to escape that debt burden through bankruptcy, so we may be headed for a student-loan bubble like the housing bubble.
The one project that received an increased appropriation in the bipartisan deal to raise the debt ceiling was more money to subsidize students to go to college. Loaning taxpayers’ money to students to go to college makes no sense and is hurtful even to the students who get the money.
If students were working a 48-hour-a-week night job, as I did when I worked my way through college, they wouldn’t have time to get into the mischief referenced by the recent DCL or to attend drinking parties, and they wouldn’t accumulate the indebtedness that will burden their lives for decades.
For encouragement, they can read Zac Bissonnette’s helpful book, “Debt-Free U: How I Paid for an Outstanding College Education Without Loans, Scholarships, or Mooching Off My Parents.” Alternatively, students can get a job that doesn’t require a college education.
Berkeley offers college credit to ‘fight the new Jim Crow’:
Back in the day, if students wanted easy credits, they signed up for underwater basket-weaving. Now they just need a political cause.
“It was supposed to be a day of peaceful protest, with students exercising their democratic right to demonstrate against soaring university fees,” reports the Daily Mail. “But anarchists hijacked the event, setting off the most violent scenes of student unrest seen in Britain for decades.
Militants from far-Left groups whipped up a mix of middle-class students and younger college and school pupils into a frenzy.”Back in the day anarchists would have criticized the very idea of state-run universities and would have denounced the act of stealing money from one segment of society to pay the tuition of another. Now balaclava-clad anarchists are the vanguard of those resentful of the fact the free lunch is over and the state cannot afford to continue this educational boondoggle.
So called anarchists apparently no longer support the philosophy that the authority of the state has no place in conduct of human relations, including education. Anarchism today translates into mindless property destruction by dim-witted hooligans.
It is used as justification by the state to attack “democratic” protesters and minimize their minor disagreements with the government and its institutions.
Officials at Grambling State University in Grambling, La., have dispatched an e-mail to students warning them against forwarding certain political e-mails they may get on the school e-mail system, because they could violate “state policy.”
The issue is being highlighted by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, which monitors educational institutions for violations of civil rights.”As the national dialogue increasingly focuses on the upcoming elections, administrators at Grambling State have made the unconstitutional decision to shut down the conversation on campus,” said Robert Shibley, the organization’s senior vice president.
“The First Amendment protects such core political expression, and as a public university, GSU cannot lawfully prevent students and faculty from speaking their minds about the electoral choices facing our country,” he said.”Back Fired,” by William J. Federer, shows how the faith that gave birth to tolerance is no longer tolerated!
It was an e-mail from GSU’s Office of Media Relations that started the problem.”Individuals who receive political campaign solicitations via university e-mail are advised to delete these e-mails upon receipt,” said the e-mail. “DO NOT FORWARD campaign solicitations using university e-mail as this implies your support for the candidate and may be viewed as utilizing university resources for solicitation purposes, a violation of … state policy,” according to FIRE.
