You STILL don't believe the public schools are deliberately brainwashing children into socialism?

My friend (we'll call him Spongerob Tyrapants) called me a couple of days ago, alarmed at what he'd just heard on the Sean Hannity radio show.

At a Fay Boozman town hall, it seems, a woman related her child's story to the Congressman.

She and the child were getting their school supplies for the year. He (I assume it was a 'he'.) wanted a specific kind of pencils; she and the school supply list thought he should get a cheaper kind.

She came up with a good idea. If he earned enough money himself to buy the pencils, he could get them.

Which he did.

On the first day of school, however, the teacher let each child keep four of his or her own pencils and put all the rest into a community "pot." When someone lost or broke their pencil, they could pick any pencil out of the pot they wanted.

Private property, it seems, is not a priority for the Educational Establishment.

Call it Pencil Socialism. You have no incentive to keep track of your pencil, or to take care of it. If you lose or break it, hey, no big deal -- there's more in the community pencil pot. And under such a system, why on earth would you buy a good pencil instead of the cheapest one you can find?

And, sadly, that's not the only instance. There are examples here, here, and here. And I'm sure that's just the tip of the iceberg.

[UPDATE:] Question is, what to do about it? I suggest having the child "lose" a couple of pencils a week, grab his or her own pencils out of the pot to replace them, and smuggle them home.

And NEXT year, buy some of those personalized pencils, and put things on them like "Socialism is WRONG!" or "Ron Paul 2012!" or "Redistributors go to HELL when they die!"

I am the Coupon King! (I can do anything.)

Through my mastery of Double Couponing, today I managed to get $15.71 worth of groceries for $8.27, a $7.44 (or 47%) savings. Plus, I caught a $3.99 bag of Doritos on sale for two bucks.

I consider it a success if my couponing saves me more than I pay in sales tax. This time, I accomplished that goal many times over.

Congress should put me in charge of making all the government's purchases.

From From My Cold Dead Fingers: Why America Needs Guns by Sheriff Richard I. Mack:

On August 21, 1992, 14-year-old Sammy Weaver and his friend Kevin Harris went hunting. Sammy's dog Striker caught scent of the men hiding in the woods. The dog barked and ran ahead. Sammy and Kevin thought he'd picked up the trail of a deer. They hurried to follow. An unexpected burst of gunfire from a hidden sniper stopped Striker in his tracks.

Terrified and confused, Sammy fired his rifle, then turned to flee. A federal agent shot him in the back, killing him instantly. Kevin Harris fired into the woods, mortally wounding Marshal Degan. In the dark of night, Harris and Randy Weaver brought Sammy's body from the woods to a shed near the house.

Weaver and his 16-year-old daughter, Sara -- along with Kevin Harris, who was armed -- went to the shed where Sammy lay dead. Two hundred yards away, an FBI sniper took aim and fired. The bullet caught Randy Weaver in the arm. The trio bolted for the cabin. Vicki Weaver stood in the doorway, holding her infant daughter Elisheba. Sniper Lon Horiuchi shot her in the face. Some fragments of bullet and of Vicki Weaver's skull wounded Kevin Harris. For a week the family and Harris holed up inside the cabin. Sarah Weaver crawled over her mother's body to prepare food and water for her wounded father and Harris, her 10-year-old sister Rachel and baby Elisheba. FBI negotiators outside taunted the family with remarks like, "How's the baby, Mrs. Weaver?" and, "Good morning, Randall. How'd you sleep? We're having pancakes. What are you having?"

Text of my email to Rep. Jo Ann Emerson, Sens. Bond & McCaskill

I have found at least three different versions of the health care bill that contain an individual requirement to buy insurance.

I have no income. If this requirement passes, it will be literally impossible for me to comply. You may as well add on a rider to build debtors' prisons all across the country, because there will be a lot of people who cannot buy insurance. If we could afford it, we would already HAVE it.

I have heard Barack Obama and others say the poor will be reimbursed with tax credits. This demonstrates how completely out of touch Washington is with the real people of this country. Tax credits do ZERO good to people who are too poor to pay taxes.

I urge you to do everything within your power to keep the individual requirement from becoming law if it is not paid for up-front, perhaps through a voucher system. Vote against the entire bill if you have to.

Idk how much I'll be blogging. Isn't it futile to continue raging against the dying of the light after the Dems & Reps have smashed the lightbulb into a million pieces & siezed control of the lamp? Libertarians may retrieve a few slivers of glass from the trash, but can they ever reassemble them into a functioning lightsource? No. So why bother? I dunno if I should even vote anymore. Doesn't participation in a process imply an endorsement of the results? Chk out my tweets & fb if u wanna keep up w/ me.
