Not for Children

They are grooming and propagandizing your kids. This is a little bit of a read, but stay with me, it’s important.

There is a book that was written for children, titled “Lawn Boy.” It was written by Jonathan Evison. This book is definitely NOT for children, but you wouldn’t know it by reading the description, which reads:

For Mike Muñoz, a young Chicano living in Washington State, life has been a whole lot of waiting for something to happen. Not too many years out of high school and still doing menial work—and just fired from his latest gig as a lawn boy on a landscaping crew—he knows that he’s got to be the one to shake things up if he’s ever going to change his life. But how?

In this funny, angry, touching, and ultimately deeply inspiring novel, bestselling author Jonathan Evison takes the reader into the heart and mind of a young man on a journey to discover himself, a search to find the secret to achieving the American dream of happiness and prosperity. That’s the birthright for all Americans, isn’t it? If so, then what is Mike Muñoz’s problem? Though he tries time and again to get his foot on the first rung of that ladder to success, he can’t seem to get a break. But then things start to change for Mike, and after a raucous, jarring, and challenging trip, he finds he can finally see the future and his place in it. And it’s looking really good.

Lawn Boy is an important, entertaining, and completely winning novel about social class distinctions, about overcoming cultural discrimination, and about standing up for oneself.

Sounds innocent, right? This is NOT an entirely accurate description of this book. The book is ACTUALLY about how the main character, Mike Munoz, a 22 year old half Mexican boy who mows lawns for a living. By the end of the book, he discovers how Capitalism is racist and homophobic, and this is why success and happiness are eluding him.

There are descriptive homosexual sex scenes in the book, “F” bombs are sprinkled throughout, and the entire American way of life is painted as evil. This book contains graphic sex scenes between children as young as nine years old, which falls under the umbrella of kiddie porn. Here is a quote from page 19:

Not that it really matters, in fourth grade at a church youth group meeting out in the bushes, I touched Doug Goebbels dick, and he touched mine. In fact, there was even some mouths involved.

Then on page 91, there is this passage:

What if I told you I touched another guy’s dick? What if I told you I sucked it? I was ten years old, but it’s true. I put Doug Goebbels’ dick in my mouth. I was in fourth grade, it was no big deal. He sucked mine too. And you know what, it wasn’t terrible.

So why am I writing this post? Because this book is in the library of many schools. It is on the required reading list for some classes in middle and high schools in Texas, Florida, and Virginia (where parents aren’t allowed to have a say in what their kids are learning). If you want to read some scary stuff, read the comments to the Texas article, where adults try to justify this book by citing studies about elementary school aged children engaging in sex.

I have no problem with gay adults. I personally don’t care what an adult does with their genitals. However, kids need to be kept out of it.

I have said this before: There are activists in schools who are trying to fill your children’s heads with propaganda. They are grooming your kids to be sexual and economic slaves. I spent eight years as a public school teacher, I know. There are many good teachers who care about this country and the kids in their care. There are also hard left communist hacks, pedophiles, and slackers who are just there for a paycheck. Those teachers are the ones who are spotting kids that are malleable, and creating little communist fuck toys for themselves. Listen to this parent’s objections at a Virginia school board meeting:

As she reads aloud from the book, the school board shuts her down because “there are kids in the audience.” Well, that is kind of the point. If this book isn’t for children, then it shouldn’t be in the school library. She refuses to step down, so they shut off her microphone. I guess this makes her a Domestic Terrorist.

At this point, I cannot stress enough: Get your kids out of public school. Even in private school, pay close attention to what they are learning and studying. If you don’t, you might wake up one day to discover that there is a purple haired Marxist with a penchant for buggering little boys living in your house who just turned you in to the FBI for not being “woke” enough.

Disagree with Science

Let’s say that you run one of the largest school systems in the world. Now let’s say that the science shows that black and Hispanic students are not as smart and talented as other kids. How can you trust the science when the science is races an sheeit.

I know- eliminate the science. Now all kids are the same.

Dead Students? Yes

In Baltimore, it is being reported that dead students continued to be enrolled in classes. Why? The answer lies in three letters: FTE, or Full Time Enrollment. Schools get money that is dependent upon how many students are enrolled in the school.

When I was a teacher, I had a student who died in a car accident. Even though I was notified by the Principal of his death, the student continued to be carried on my rolls. Since taking attendance is a legal requirement, I marked him absent. After a week of this, I was contacted by the Principal and she told me that every time I did this, the computer system was calling the mother with an automated message, which stated “Your student was absent from Science class today.” The Principal said, “Do you have any idea how upsetting that is?” I said, “Well, he isn’t here. Maybe we could change the mother’s number in the system, or remove him from classes.” The Principal said “We are working on that. For now, just mark him as present.” I asked her to email those instructions to me. She got angry and refused. I marked him present as I was told.

That continued for a month. As a teacher, you do what you are told, or your contract won’t be renewed for the next school year.

Now the news from Baltimore was far worse than that, in that they carried the dead students for years. However, the difference is one of degree, not of principle. So, I can believe it.

Fairness, according to the left

This item keeps coming across my aggregator. This third grade teacher has a lesson using bandaids that the left seems to think is brilliant. The conclusion of the lesson is this:

Fair doesn’t mean everyone gets the same thing, fair means that everyone gets what they need to be successful.

No it doesn’t. In real life, not everyone is going to be successful. Some won’t try. Some will try and fail. To hand out materials and benefits to ensure that everyone has the same amount of success is not helping children. It causes them to become lazy and reliant on handouts from a beneficent authority figure. This is how people become cattle, dependent on others for their success.

Instead, teach them to become self reliant. Teach them that anything worth having is worth working for. Teach them that the joy of success after a struggle is something worth striving for.

Al Qaeda won

If someone had told you 20 years ago, as you watched the towers fall, that our military would flee from Afghanistan, leaving their weapons and Americans civilians behind, and there would be a Muslim woman on television, telling our nation’s teachers to teach children that the 9-11 attackers were not terrorists, and avoid promoting American exceptionalism, would you have believed it?

War for our kids

As many in the press try to downplay the Taliban’s atrocities, some stories of the horrors that are being carried out are leaking out of Afghanistan.

Americans on the left began showing their stupidity almost immediately:

Meanwhile, stories of forced marriages and executions continue to come out of the country. Those who live in the Capitol are facing searches, checkpoints, and beatings.

This is what happens when a war becomes not just about power, but involves tribal and religious implications. This could easily be our future here in the US: A victorious left, taking your children to be a part of their sexual fantasy. Don’t think that’s possible?

As a teacher, I was often provided with pro-homosexuality teaching materials with instructions to “push” this on children. I refused. Here is one of the handouts I was given, with instructions to deliver lessons on homosexuality to kids. Note that there are resources on there for K-5 children. They are trying to sex up your kids, even at 6 years old!

We are in the middle of a war, a revolution. This is just one of the things that the victors want.

I know that this makes me sound like a raving lunatic. You don’t have to take my word for it- click on the links above. Read the handout that I embedded above. Visit the websites on it.

We are in a fight, not only for the survival of this nation, but for the very souls of our children.

I already knew

I read about a school shooting in a New Mexico middle school. One 13 year old student shot another. As soon as the name of the school was mentioned, I knew what I would find. I also knew that an NRA member as unlikely to be involved.

The middle school was Washington Middle School. That school has 442 students enrolled, with 410 of them receiving free lunch. Eighty seven percent of the student body is reading below their grade level. Ninety percent of US schools are better than this one in reading and math. One in eight households are single parent households.

To get those absolutely horrid results, taxpayers are paying more than $11,300 per student each year. I would say that this money is being wasted.

Cause, effect

One of the many jobs I have had was at a plant that made stainless steel pipe and tube. The process was that we would buy large rolls of stainless steel, slit them to the proper sizes, then cold roll those into pipe. The edges of the roll would be welded together, then the now completed pipe was induction annealed so it would hold its shape.

We had a woman there who was in charge of QA. It was her job to test each batch of pipe to ensure that the pipe was properly manufactured. Once, the woman decertified an entire batch of pipe because the welds were faulty and had microscopic cracks in them. That batch had to go out the next day so we could meet the customer’s deadline. It was a couple of dozen tons of pipe.

Management fixed the problem by firing the QA department and shipping the pipe. Of course, the entire batch of pipe came back when the welds began to fail. Due to bad management, the company went out of business less than a year later.

I am telling you this story because there is a lesson there. One that will easily apply to the situation in this country with regards to our education. The Oregon governor recently decided that too many black students were failing tests in reading and math proficiency. To her, the obvious problem lies in the test, so the test was eliminated.

Race quota in education

The Biden administration is bringing back an Obama era policy of racial quotas in school discipline. One of the many problems that forced my exit from education was my experience with this policy, although I was not aware that the policy had ever ceased. Behavior that gets a white student suspended will not even merit a stern talking to if displayed by a black student.

I am done

This article blames the school system because a high school student had a 0.13 grade point average and failed nearly every class he took. The student in question was absent 272 times in four years. He failed his classes for four years, and the first time the kid’s mother knew anything was during the final semester of his senior year? Yeah, mother of the year right there.

I have 133 students this year. Of those, more than half of them (68) are currently failing my course. Six of those students have a perfect zero for the current marking period, due to the fact that they have not turned in a single one of the fifteen assignments that has been assigned to them. In fact, more than half of my students have received at least 6 zeros. The mean grade for my students is a 48 percent.

Absenteeism is over the top. I have students who have been absent more than not. One of my students has only been in class six times so far this year. I have over a dozen students that I have not seen nor heard from since before Christmas.

There is nothing that I as a teacher can do. I teach, but the student has to show up and actually make an effort. I am tired of caring more about my students’ success than they or their parents.

In fact, I have had enough. I am done. I am putting in my two weeks’ notice tomorrow. Since spring break is coming up, my last day as a teacher will be next Friday. This morning, I was offered a job supervising techs at a nearby hospital. I accepted.

Back to the medical business.
