Idiot of the Week

leave a comment »

Earlier this week, it was reported that a nine year old boy was suspended from a Texas elementary school for threatening to make another student disappear with a magic ring. The boys parents believe that he got the idea after watching The Hobbit movie.
Apparently Roxanne Greer, principal of Kermit Elementary School and other school officials believed the threat was real enough to suspend the boy for making a “terroristic threat.”
I attempted to get a comment (and find out if the ring was in fact real) from school officials.
A gentleman who answered the phone at the school (no name was provided) informed me that “due to Texas law, the school was not allowed to discuss a student with anyone but the students parents or guardian.”
I asked why a student would be suspended for threatening to make another student disappear with a ring that, for all intents and purposes, does not exist. The gentleman informed me that that was not the only reason why the student was suspended and that “I should not believe everything that is reported in the news.”
When I asked him to clarify, he again cited privacy issues.
I asked if it was true, as the boys parents were reporting, that the boy had also been suspended for bringing a children’s encyclopedia to school and calling another student black?
The gentleman informed me that the boys parents could say whatever they want to the press but it was not true. When I asked for clarification, he again cited privacy issues and stated that this was between the boy, his parents and the school.
He was unable to comprehend, as I explained to him, that this was not merely an issue between the boy, his parents and the school but an issue that impacts all society. When those charged with the responsibility of educating and shaping young minds exercise such illogical behavior, society as a whole must deal with the consequences.
Principal Roxanne Greer has no business being around children. She should be fired immediately, as should all those who made the mistake of hiring her.

Education Does Not Cure Ignorance

leave a comment »

Judge Shira Scheindlin has proven that all the education in the world can not cure ignorance. It’s too bad that Cornell and Columbia University did not offer any classes in common sense. Her ruling against the NYPD’s Stop and Frisk program will benefit no one except the criminal.
It’s of no surprise that at least three of her previous rulings have been overturned on appeals.

Judges such as Scheindlin and Nicholas Garaufis, who ruled that the NYC Fire Department test was biased, have proven that they are more concerned with grabbing headlines and making a name for themselves than doing what’s right for the people of this country. Both need to be censured.
Both have demonstrated through their rulings why judges should not be seated for life but should serve for a specific term.

(Both Scheindlin and Garaufis were appointed by President Clinton.)

Fire the Teacher Rather Than Suspended a Six Year Old Student

with 2 comments

A six year old student at Park Elementary School in Maryland has been suspended for shaping a pastry into what a teacher believed was a gun.
Really?
That teacher should be fired and never allowed to teach again for lacking any common sense.
He or she is obviously unfit to supervise children.

Idiots In Control

with one comment

What kind of society are we living in where school children are not allowed to use sun block? When those in power believe it better to endure a sunburn than risk some improbable reaction to the sun block?
We have allowed IDIOTS into positions of power for too long now.
People need to begin to realize that those responsible for making choices that effect us all, really have no business doing so.
We must stop expecting so much but accepting so little.

On Nidal Malik Hasan and Barack Hussein Obama

with one comment

So let’s get this straight.

Nidal Malik Hasan attended Dar al Hijrah Islamic Center, a mosque that several of the 9/11 hijackers attended. The same mosque that was run by Anwar al Awlaki. A hate filled anti-American imam, who has since praised Hasan for his actions.

It has been made known that Hasan has ties to terrorists and made several attempts to contact al-Qaeda.

It has been made known that Hasan has expressed contempt for the United States.

And yet this man was allowed to remain in the United States military and even promoted.

Can anyone say they are truly surprised?

Let me remind you all that once upon a time there was a man named Barack Hussein Obama who ran for president of the United States of America.

During his campaign, it was made known to the American people that Barack Hussein Obama attended a church run by a hate filled anti-American preacher.

It was made known that Barack Hussein Obama had ties to William Ayers, a domestic terrorist as well as Rashid Khalidi.

It was made known that Barack Hussein Obama’s wife expressed contempt for the United States.

And yet, the American people voted this man into office.

What has become of this country? America where are your morals? Where is your common sense?

We need not face any foreign enemies. We will destroy ourselves from within. All in the name of political correctness.

God bless the United States of America.

And God help us.
