Democrats are more interested in appeasing the teachers unions

Texas Senator Ted Cruz proposed a provision in the tax reform bill for homeschoolers allowing for 529 expense accounts, but thanks to the Democrats loyalty to the teachers’ unions and their efforts to keep their failing public education system still standing on its feet, it was struck from the bill and thus the filibuster was averted.  Cruz was correct in the remarks that he made.

What every Democrat is standing up to do right now is saying, ‘we’re going to discriminate against home-schoolers. We’re going to cut you out.’ Why? Because the Democratic Party can’t stand the audacity of a parent who would take it upon himself or herself to educate their child free of centralized control.

The key prahse here is “centralized control” of our education system, and if we can’t have vouchers or the fear of vouchers allowing the federal government to control the curriculum; then what really needs to be done is get the federal government out of education and quite likely the state government as well. Return that power to local communities and private organisations.  The public education system is nothing but a work placement program for the adults that run it.  The children are nothing more than pawns with the sole purpose of running them through the system, and regardless if they are educated well or not, throw them out on the streets once the processing through the public education factory is done at around 18 years of age.  However, these children will likely become the useful idiots for the progressives as they continue to seek more power over the America people.  Let us not forget that the millennials became fond of Bernie Sanders’ messaging of how socialism is great, and if he lives long enough to run again he just might get the nomination and win.

So taking “young skulls full of mush” (as Rush Limbaugh put it for many years) and indoctrinating them with a progressive worldview is vital to the Democratic Party and its agenda and goals.  However, Senator Cruz, parents and other liberty activists are not taking this lying down, and some have paid the price for their whistle-blowing.  Nor should they, and just accept this status quo.  Our children are too precious to be taking advantage by these greedy dogs.

Public education as a collective and the teachers’ unions work hand and hand with the Democratic Party.  Public Education indoctrinates its children with a leftist progressive worldview. The teachers’ unions fight for higher taxes and bond measures until their local body politic gets squeezed and more.  Teacher’s pay the union dues and the teachers’ union themselves spend their money on candidates (mostly Democrats) that will keep the gravy train going.  The public education system and teachers will get more money but will still be incompetent either because they truly can’t be competent and/or maintain the smokescreen so that too many people will never catch on to their legal scam.  For all the talk that teachers are not paid enough, they are paid well more than an average private school teacher.  Yet they demand our respect because they are teachers.  That is a whole different piece of itself.

The Democrats and the teachers’ unions also want to do away with homeschooling and even private education and force all children into the public school system.  That would be something similar to what they did in the Soviet Union or what is currently done in Cuba.  The Democratic Party is seeking its own payout with their partnership with public education and the teachers’ unions.  Votes, elections, and power to ‘fundamentally transform America.’  All I can say to that is Matthew 18:6.

P.S. The Democrats were always good at discrimination.

Homeschool Families Suffer From Senate Democrats’ Tax Reform Tantrum

https://pjmedia.com/parenting/senate-democrats-target-homeschool-families-in-last-minute-tax-reform-tantrum/As the Republican Party edged closer to passing historic tax reform, Democrats in the U.S. Senate used a last-minute procedural protest to attack homeschool families. Their petty complaint struck the short title of the tax reform bill, one provision of the endowment tax, and the extension of college savings plans to homeschool expenses.

The homeschool attack proved particularly revealing. The Republican tax bill would extend the use of 529 tax-advantaged saving plans — originally intended to foster saving for college tuition — to K-12 public and private schools, as well as homeschooling. Rather than complaining that 529s should only be for college, the Democrats struck the homeschool provision, leaving the K-12 school extension in place.

Video: So, You Think You’re Tolerant?

Published

on

By

Leftists like to fancy themselves as being tolerant and Liberal, but they fall way short in both qualities.

Leftists will tell you that they are the most tolerant people who have ever lived, they will also scream at you for being a racist, xenophobic troglodyte if you happen to mention that you’re a conservative. They are supposedly ‘Liberal’, being in favour of Liberty while demanding it’s polar opposite – socialism.

Yes, if there is one constant in the universe, its that Leftists cannot be honest about who they truly are. This is what we love about our wonderful opponents on the nation’s socialist Left, for they are nothing like another group that went by the same nomenclature who also screamed at people in the streets with the motto: Common Good Before Individual Good. [Gemeinnutz vor Eigennutz]

But let’s not talk about the epithets they project on their enemies, let’s talk about how they get along with everyone who just happens to agree with everything they say. A new PragerU video featuring Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report looked at who is really tolerant. He is a true Liberal that discovered that it is actually the Pro-Liberty Right that is more tolerant, go figure.

Are you tolerant? You probably think so. But who is tolerant in America today? Is it those on the left, or those on the right? In this video, Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report analyzes this question and shares his experience.

Trump celebrates the victory of a Democratic Socialist to feed his ego

Published

on

Following Tuesday’s primary races, Donald Trump tweeted his glee after ten-term NY Rep. Joe Crowley—a Democrat many thought would replace Nancy Pelosi as the party’s leader in the House—lost his primary race to a Bernie Sanders supporter, Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Besides proving himself to be a textbook narcissistic sociopath, Trump’s happiness concerning Crowley’s misfortune misses the point that the Democratic Socialist movement within the Democrat party is on the rise.

Back in January, Louis Farrakhan’s favorite Democrat and the Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee Keith Ellison (MN) praised the work of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) and its positive impact on the Democrat party—even adopting parts of the DSA agenda into the Democrat party platform.

In the May 16 primaries, we witnessed four openly Socialist candidates supported by the DSA win their campaigns in Pennsylvania state House races. Since three of the four winners are running unopposed in November, the DSA is guaranteed to be victorious.

With New York’s 14th Congressional District leaning Democrat +29, Ocasio-Cortez is also assured of winning her race in November, meaning that Socialism will have another voice in Washington.

There are those who will argue that the DSA will fail to advance its agenda because it’s too extreme, but recent evidence would appear to contradict that claim. For example, Bernie Sanders nearly beat Hillary in 2016—losing to her due to rules that rigged the primary in her favor—while running on a platform chock-full of socialist ideas.

By the way, some of Bernie’s socialist ideas were adopted by Trump.

With Bernie’s run for President and victories like Ocasio-Cortez’s under its belt, the DSA is experiencing dramatic growth. Since the 2016 election, nationwide membership has increased from 5,000 to 40,000, with 1152 of those members joining the day after the NY primary.

Younger voters are embracing socialism in ever-increasing numbers. According to a November 2017 report by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, nearly half of millennials (44 percent) polled at the time preferred socialism to capitalism.
It’ somewhat fashionable, even more so in the age of Trump, to laugh at Democrats when they show their socialist colors, but with conservatives also embracing parts of socialism, Democratic Socialists could have the last laugh as we quickly approach the day of becoming the United Socialist States of America.

Ronald Reagan once warned, “Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.”

It looks like that generation is here.

High-Speed Rail: Incompetent & corrupt bureaucrats

Published

on

The California train-to-nowhere has proven once again that incompetent bureaucrats run California. In a recent article by the Fresno Bee, these incompetent bureaucrats have to tear down a bridge that they are building due to safety issues. And the Fresno Bee rightfully states:

how do we know if anything it has built is safe?. If the rail authority can’t build in the flat lands of the valley, how can they be expected to build safely in the seismic areas of Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area?

This could have been prevented, and one person that could have stopped this boondoggle is the incumbent Controller and my opponent Betty Yee. Unfortunately, Betty Yee is not interested in protecting taxpayers but protecting her political backers that have filled her campaign war chest with over a million dollars in contributions.

The Controller must protect the taxpayer, and that is why the Controller has independent audit authority and can cut funding when a project or program doesn’t comply with the law; which the HSR project doesn’t comply with Prop. 1A funding parameters requiring 1/3 from the federal government, 1/3 for private investment, and 1/3 from the state.

As Controller, I will investigate and audit this project to expose the waste, fraud, abuse, and corruption and will stop payments until the project complies with the law.

Almost four years in office she has done nothing to protect taxpayers. She has failed to do her job, so much so, that the federal government has begun an audit investigation into this project.

We can’t afford four more years of Betty Yee. It is time to replace her and elect Konstantinos Roditis as California’s next State Controller.


Konstantinos Roditis is a candidate for California State Controller. You can learn more about his campaign at cacontroller.com, and you can follow him on Twitter & Facebook.
