These days as our kids run about for decades as lost souls trying to achieve escape velocity from their upbringing, to establish themselves as individuals, all too often they end up doing all the same things in an attempt to be “unique.”
Each and every one of them believes “they” are on a path nobody else has ever been on as they get tattoos, color their hair, spike their hair in the latest European fashions and spend their weekends pursuing binge drinking……………why?
Public education is the maestro of the three primary influences and has embedded itself between the modern parent and the child in such a way that they have exacerbated the difficulties of raising a child by infusing a lot of needless “social” commentary into the process of education. Taken from the pages of Saul Alinsky’s writing, many teachers have sought to advance social agenda’s they received in college, and attached them to the natural rebelliousness of youth to propagate a vast social movement funded entirely by tax dollars.
Most every youthful person says the same things when asked about social causes, in spite what their parents might believe, because public education has created that wedge using the parent’s tax dollars as the platform. See my article about Chick-Fil-A here for more on this topic:
To those who wish to argue with me and proclaim that I’m being too far-reaching with this topic examine the case below, where Roger Grein under the guise of goodness has overstepped the fine line of what public education is supposed to teach, and what is the parent’s responsibility. Roger thinks he should use high schools to launch young people on a quest for philanthropy, which is a desire to improve the material, social, and spiritual welfare of humanity, especially through charitable activities. In other words, the proposal is that schools should teach altruism.
Altruism is an attitude or way of behaving that is marked by unselfish concern for the welfare of others. This is a concept that has been tried through religion and politics for over 4000 years and is built upon the ruined foundations of western philosophy. All cultures who embrace altruism end up extinct or hiding in some mountain passage someplace avoiding a more aggressive culture, so the merits of altruism are debatable. Altruism is explored explicitly in the book Atlas Shrugged, which I’m beginning to think should be required reading in 8th grade English class along with Alan Eckert’s The Frontiersman and until Ayn Rand put those thoughts down on paper for the world to study along with Plato, Socrates, and Aristotle, and the works of writers like Sir Thomas More, the evils of altruism had not been properly explored, only recklessly promoted.
This brings us to this ridiculous notion that philanthropy should be taught in a local high school by teachers over-stepping their boundary, on a quest to save the world by some hippie definition established by kooks and drug addicts who only studied the versions of philosophy that they agreed with. According to the article below, Roger Grein believes it to be a wonderful thing to teach compassion, and high moral principles to the ripe young minds of public education. Check it out:
Program teaches philanthropy to high school, college students
Youth decide how to make charitable donations to groups.
By James Sprague, Staff Writer Updated 9:56 AM Friday, July 29, 2011
CINCINNATI — An area non-profit organization is assisting high school students throughout the Tri-State in not only giving to charity, but learning more about the spirit of philanthropy and social causes.
Magnified Giving, a non-profit organization based in the Cincinnati suburb of Reading, enters its fourth year of teaching students to become philanthropists through placing the decision of what charities to donate funds to upon the shoulders of students.
The program, originally conceived 10 years ago at the college level by Roger Grein, a Reading accountant, allows students and teachers in 15 area high schools to form Youth Grantmaking Councils charged with dispersing a grant of at least $1,000 to area charities.
Seeing success with the program at area universities — including Miami University — is what instigated Grein to take it to area high schools.
“I thought ‘My God, what a wonderful idea to educate and get young people involved,’ ” Grein said. “Look at the lives it could touch.”
The charity the council decides to donate the funds to is determined by students researching area non-profits, examining proposals, visiting organizations and meeting with boards of directors, said Jen Senett, director of marketing and communications for Mount Notre Dame.
“Students break up into teams and take on a different social cause, such as children, the elderly or teen issues,” Senett said. “Each team pitches it to the group why the nonprofit organization deserves the grant money and chooses the one that will make the biggest impact.”
Reading the comments of Mr. Grein, I would propose that he is functioning from a level of immaturity as a human being, and has no right to teach any child anything about life. He may be qualified to teach a child about arithmetic, or English, but not on the philosophy of social welfare.
Any military drill sergeant knows that the best way to create a good soldier is to break down the individual identity of the candidate right off the bus. Cut their hair, give them a uniform, and make them just like everyone else in their group. Insult them aggressively, driving their individual ego’s from their youthful bodies so they will function as a collective unit on the battlefield, without a sense of self preservation. But in society a sense of self is needed.
Is it any accident that millions of our young people are missing a sense of self confidence which would prevent them from drug abuse, binge drinking, sexual mis-adventures, financial misconduct, altering their bodies with piercings and tattoos, or even suicidal behavior if they were taught that they must love themselves before they can love another?
Often behind these teachers of altruism you find a person who has trouble with relationships in their own lives, where they’ve been divorced one or more times, or they don’t get along with family members, or neighbors because they believe only they are right and are on some ideological crusade to “teach” the world to love under the hippie sign of “peace.” I know many of these people, I’ve met them at all levels, especially in education and I personally would not trust these idiots to watch my dog while I go on a weekend trip, let alone pour a bunch of half-baked nonsense into a child I’m raising.
But worse yet, school systems are openly embracing these ideas such as what Mr. Grein has proposed. The article above was written in our community paper after all as if it were a great benefit to all tax payers that their children would be taught to give to others before they gave to themselves. And these are the type of programs that schools believe are “preparing” our youth for their college years, that place of social engineering who charges parents 50K to 100K to teach their children to not trust their parents. Schools teach these social programs as justification for the enormous sums of money they are asking for in public education from property owners.
When a young man sits across from a young woman over dinner and says “I love you,” what does the word “I” mean? If the young man has no concept of self, then what merit does the word “I” have in that statement? What is a young woman supposed to build her life around if she agrees to marry the boy who thinks he’s going to tackle the world and start a family with her under the profession of the word “LOVE” defined by the qualifier “I.” For the love has no meaning if there is no value in the word “I.” This is why marriages are failing more and more often, and this is why more people than ever are making a mess of their lives, because they have lost a sense of self worth. And they try to fill that lack of self-worth with social causes, which never really do the trick, but leave the participants on a lifelong quest for world peace to give their meaningless lives justification. And the people they provided philanthropy to become addicts, dependent on the services of philanthropy instead of building in themselves a sense of value to propel them into their own lives of freedom, valor, and personal conviction.
And all the while, our human race paid for our own demise yet again by pouring money into the pockets of people like Mr. Grien, who because they lack personal worth seek to live through others as our tax money fuels the enterprise of our social undoing, all because society did not understand the philosophy of their age and listened to all the wrong people who advocated all the wrong approaches to human relationships. Because there are other works of philosophy that should be looked at also, and one of those is the second most looked at book in the Library of Congress behind the Holy Bible, and that is Atlas Shrugged.
It’s all in the book Atlas Shrugged, the rise and fall of civilization built upon altruism. It is far easier to read it than to waste your life in the pursuit of philosophic failure advocated by a radical few, yet funded by all of us, because the value of the proclamation wasn’t fully understood by the tax payer.
WARNING…………………….WATCH EACH VIDEO CAREFULLY!
CAUTION was the first reaction from some of the people who saw a sneak peek of my recent video promoting the protection of Senate Bill 5, which John Kasich signed into law at the start of April and brings management controls to collective bargaining agreements established by public sector unions. A majority of those public sector unions are fire-fighter, police and public school teachers and they don’t like S.B.5 at all, because they have openly abused the system of collective bargaining to the level where tax increases are imminent unless reforms are implemented to the pensions and wage rates they’ve elected to give themselves which are approximately 30% higher than what tax payers in the private sector make as far as a wage. The severe math problem at play is that as government has grown, and more and more people become employed by government at the high rates of pay, they are beginning to outnumber the private sector tax payers which are stressing the whole financial system. So it has come time that some control must be implemented, otherwise our taxes will rise to unsustainable levels and the needed reforms will have to be explored later, when it’s too late. The time for action is now and was on my mind while I was doing some gardening.
A good friend of mine who doesn’t know me from deep in the past laughed at the video, because he liked the metaphor, for the truth and clarity of it. But he said, “Be careful, you’re playing with fire.” The humor of his joke had two meanings, first it was a literal interpretation of the fact that fire was used in the video to blast some sack worms out of a tree I’m trying to save. But his deeper meaning was one of caution, and it’s one I’ve heard from many people over this whole issue of public sector union control. The perception is that if you mess with unions, especially a police union, then abuse, harassment, intimidation, even death is sure to follow.
When I was in my teens I worked for an organized crime group out of Chicago with an arm in Cincinnati, unknowing at first, but learned that the restaurant I was working for was a front for that activity (my job was a busboy). When it was discovered that I wasn’t afraid of conflict I was given jobs as a sometimes bodyguard and driver for the guy who managed this restaurant. I drove him and his friends around to night clubs and hotels. Several of those friends were Bengal players who were selling cocaine as a side job and women who were gold diggers. Since I was a straight kid who didn’t drink, smoke, or do drugs I was the ideal driver. It was my task to bail the occupants of the car out of trouble when drinking impaired their judgment and fights over the women erupted at night clubs. When people got hurt, badly, or people were caught with illegal activity, there was a judge and former mayor who fixed things up for the restaurant, knowing full well what was going on. I had dinner with this judge on more than one occasion, and I knew him well enough for him to give me his business card. “If you get into a fix kid, give me a buzz. Don’t let any of my officers haul you off to jail before you have them call me first.” He winked at me as I took his card. I never had to personally call him but my manager did on many occasions.
My next job was at a car dealership, also serving at the time as a money laundering front for cocaine traffic. I didn’t know that at the time either, but when it was discovered that I didn’t take any crap from my senior managers, and would fight anyone anywhere, I was recruited into the business. They started me off as a repo-man, which back then required me to go to someone’s home and take their car back when they fell behind in payments. Since I worked for the dealership, I had a key to the car, so we didn’t have to call in a tow truck. A driver would drop me off up the road and hide while I went to the door to tell the car’s owner what I was there to do. Most of the time they surrendered their cars to me, but sometimes there was a conflict.
I had an excellent reputation of not backing down so of course I was on the radar for a promotion and that meant drug delivery. They eased me into the deal by asking me to take a guy downtown during my work shift, I’d be paid on the side since I wasn’t selling cars while I was gone. The guy had a suit case and when we arrived at the condo very close to Ezzard Charles Drive he went into the condo leaving the suitcase behind. I was suspicious of what was in the suit case so while the guy was in the condo looked in and saw that there were two bags of cocaine tucked neatly inside. Being very much against drugs, I left the guy and headed back to the general manager of the dealership. I reported what I had found in the suit case thinking I was doing the right thing. My bosses face told me the rest of the story. He was really angry that I had left his dealer in a dangerous condo. As it turned out, he had the same card for the same judge I did, and he called the guy to solve the mess that followed.
For the next two years I was harassed by the police everywhere I went. In fact, I received a remarkable 6 traffic citations in a 2 week period shortly after that incident for seemingly silly traffic violations. I also seemed to be getting into fights everywhere I went, one in particular was a semi-professional boxer who picked a fight with me in a shopping center parking lot. He left on his own when he realized that I was hitting him too hard and wasn’t intimidated by him. When the blood started flowing and the police sirens were getting loader from someone who had called the police, he took off and left quickly and mysteriously.
The problems didn’t go away when I was in my twenties and thirties. I’ve had direct conflicts with many politicians over the years, from mayors, commissioners, and trustees. Most of the time it is the police and fire departments that have harassed my family when they realized that all the mechanisms of control and intimidation did not work on me. The conflicts originated in the simple explanation that they were in the way of things I wanted to do, or I was in their way. The difference is they are often willing to bend the rules where I expect to hold them to the law. To politicians, the law is a malleable element that can be bent to shape the money passed in their direction. It didn’t take me long to recognize there wasn’t much difference between politicians and those in organized crime. They all want what they wanted and they often used the system as a weapon against those who stood in their way. Guns or rules, it really didn’t make much difference both used force to accomplish their aims.
And this is the general perception of politics and organized crime. People do not speak out because they fear the ramifications of doing so. That fear is not unjustified; people have watched and come to accept that thuggish behavior is part of the political process. They also have come to accept that labor unions are radical and violent and if you fight them, then violence will follow.
Well, I have a good deal of experience with labor unions and conflict. Click here to read a much more detailed recollection. I have fought union stewards in company bathrooms, argued with union strikers as they called me a scab, and I would get revenge on them by out-producing them by at least double. I would do it because I was faster than they were, stronger than many of them, and if some of them were stronger than me, I was smarter. It didn’t matter how many of them there were, there was always a way to beat them if the person that faced them was not afraid, because like organized crime, politics, or union labor, the fear card is how they extort money from the tax payer. They use fear to get taxes passed. They use fear to keep people from breaking the laws. They use fear to make their labor strikes effective. Without fear they have nothing.
And that’s why going against 1.3 million people in Ohio does not bother me. 1 or a million, it doesn’t matter. I have the second amendment to protect me from politics that are being used against me as does every American. What more do I need? If the laws have no value because those who make the law, use the law as a weapon, then what is there to fear once it is accepted that the game of politics is built on fear, and if that fear is overcome, then the truth can be seen clearly.
The people who use fear to advance themselves, and labor unions certainly are guilty of this, can only threaten to walk off a job, or beat up and kill someone who attempts to shine a light on their illicit nature. They may hire people to do this for them, or vandalize the property of a target in order to inspire fear of a different nature. They may even go after the targets family. They may attempt to hack into the websites of a target, or their email. They may tap their phones or follow the target and their family around to scare them. The bottom line is that if a politician, a union leader, or an organized crime lord cannot argue facts directly, they use intimidation to scare people away from the truth, then you can be assured that you are on to something, because they are trying to protect something with that force. And what they are protecting is often money that was stolen from someone else in one form or another, and they want to keep the issue quiet.
I’ve seen every form of intimidation the human mind can concoct. And it doesn’t bother me because I’m willing to counter it. I do not ask anything of government or the people employed by it. I put up with government, the schools, the police, and the infrastructure of politics because my friends and neighbors like those things. As long as they leave me alone, I leave them alone. But when those groups start asking for money, I get angry because they want something that belongs to me. And when they use fear to get it I get even madder. And when they put it in my face and make threats, then they just made a mistake, because they will not be able to win that fight. Once when a person attempted to follow me around town, I lost them on the highway to a high-speed chase because the person following me did not have the nerve to keep up. And out of many hundreds of conflicts over the years, that is the general rule. In the end all you really need is the second amendment and the nerve to go with it. You don’t have to go out looking for a fight, but if the fight finds you, then that is why the second amendment is there, for when government becomes so corrupt they listen to thugs, organized crime, labor unions, and other fear based scoundrels who want easy access to the pot of money the government takes from all of us, then the constitution is there for our protection.
I’ve been to court so many times that I know the routine in my sleep. A judge will not even hear a case unless you appear with an attorney. Attorneys, politicians, and law-enforcement all have a nice little scam going. Attorneys use law suites to beat people into submission, especially individuals who have limited funds because an out-of-court settlement is the cheapest way to surrender to a fight that is stacked against the average citizen from the start unless they can afford equal legal counsel that bill at $200 an hour. An average court case will cost $10K to $50K and few people have that kind of money lying around. Big labor has certainly used these methods to get what they want which is just another form of extortion. They sue companies, politicians, whole branches of government, individuals, whoever gets in their way.
But the money we produce as tax payers creates this whole infrastructure. And the perpetrators of legalized theft, whoever they are, use fear to keep us from looking at the situation honestly, because once we know it’s a scam, we may not support it. That’s what they fear, that the public will realize that they are all a bunch of mindless thugs who use muscle and intimidation to gain leverage on a unknowing public.
I’ve put up with their games for over thirty years, and I’m done. I am not willing to participate in the lie of politics. If that goes against the “muscle” of politics so what, I won’t see anything I haven’t seen already. In my older years here, I have grown very fond of playing with fire. So I appreciate the concern, but I’m not the one who’s going to be burnt by it. It will be the people who are up to no good, who insist on manipulating with fear the facts to rob good people of money who will be burnt. Because to me, they are no different from the pests I had to burn out of my tree to save that tree. Taken individually, I’m sure I’d love all the little caterpillars in that nest. But when they build a nest in a tree I’m trying to save, I have to identify the problem and solve it. The same holds true for public sector labor unions that have set up a nest on our tax dollars and are threatening to kill everything the tax money is supposed to be spent on.
I’m going to call it the way it is, and by a rule, if someone is using fear of any kind instead of truth to get a point across, they are hiding something. Fear used even in the form of a mob chanting in any threatening fashion is a sign that they are hiding something, and can’t be trusted. I’m not willing as a tax payer to contribute to a system I can’t trust and I’m willing to remove any elements that get in the way of an honest exchange of ideas. Nothing else is worth the money.
Why does the President insist on tax increases? Doesn’t it seem strange that he is so insistent on raising taxes on somebody? Who’s the stubborn one? When you have people like the President always asking for more money, it is only out of the best interest of the country that somebody is the party of “NO,” because “Yes” is too expensive. That is, unless the intent is to spend too much money and to keep spending money until it’s all gone.
At the West Chester Tea Party meeting recently Sheriff Jones was asked by an audience member if he knew what Agenda 21 was. He said he did not, but the question sparked a murmur through the large crowd of people who had gathered to hear the Sheriff speak.
Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment. That plan consists of major redistribution of wealth to make the playing field more level for developing countries while putting a leash on countries like the United States, to slow down their development.
Agenda 21, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the Statement of principles for the Sustainable Management of Forests were adopted by more than 178 Governments at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janerio,Brazil, 3 to 14 June 1992.
The reason this topic came up in a question to the Sheriff is Jones is an advocate of immigration reform and he is frustrated with the lack of political will in enforcing border control. The reason is that under Agenda 21 many of the very powerful in world politics are working toward a borderless world and that might be the reason why many in America from the current president all the way down to local officials and business leaders are working to fulfilling the resolutions adopted in Rio de Janerio in 1992.
Some time ago, the mainstream media began covering in more detail the New World Order theory as to why our country entered into the financial crisis. Dubbed a “conspiracy theory” the New World Order hypothesis centers around the creation of a “global government-run by a few satanic bankers that are connected to the English Royal Family, the Rockefeller’s, and the Rothschild family. In case you haven’t heard of the theory, it basically states that the Council on Foreign Relations is a treasonous cabal of devil worshiping sickos that wants to move the entire world into a one currency system that issues a digital currency and is run like a global feudal dictatorship — sounds neat, right?
Well, When I first heard of this so-called right-wing conspiracy theory ten years ago I initially brushed it off as total hogwash believing that America was the best country in the world and that our elected officials had our best interests at heart. It wasn’t until I worked in the hedge fund world for 12 years that it finally became blatantly obvious that parts of this theory, if not all of it, are actually 100% true and not a conspiracy theory at all.
One of the aspects of the NWO theory that looks more and more like fact is the global currency plan. While initially this may strike readers as completely unfathomable, earlier this year Tim Geithner called for the IMF ‘s Special Drawing Rights to be issued and used more frequently. What’s so insanely scary about this, is that the IMF ‘s Special Drawing Right is essentially none other than the One World Currency which is espoused by the New World Order theorists (aka “right-wing wackos”).
The SDR will soon replace the dollar with a fixed exchange rate to all other currencies and this peg will devalue the dollar by some 50% or so from current levels according to the NWO theorists. So if you like gold now, get ready to watch it rise another 100% in the next year or two.
The fact that America would even consider a plan to peg the dollar to a basket of global currencies at a rate that would devalue the wealth of American citizens shows just how deep the corruption and treason of our elected officials runs — the men in charge of our economy, laws, and justice system are handing our nation over to overlord bankers just as the Greek nation was handed over to them at mere pennies on the dollar.
Soon our parks, roads, schools, military, and states will be auctioned off to the highest bidder to pay off debts and to appease creditors. Our policy will not be made in Washington but by the IMF (and the people who run it behind the curtain) who will be in control of our finances and therefore our politics. What do George Bush, Ben Bernanke, Barack Obama, Tim Geithner, Bill Clinton, the Google Founders, David Rockefeller, Dick Cheney, and most of the mega corporations today all have in common? They are all members of the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) and are pushing for the devaluation of the US Dollar and the creation of a One World Currency issued by the criminal IMF as the global central bank which will usher in Greek like austerity and a police state unlike anything the world has previously witnessed.
While the tenets of population control ad environmentalism are important, the rights of freedom and democracy are even more central to the American way — American’s should remember the phrase “Give me Liberty or give me death” and resist the One currency system at all costs.
The CFR and New World Order group are working day and night via “covet means” and corruption to undermine the governments of the world into their IMF SDR system. Once that happens, our rights as citizens will vanish. It will be the end of freedom as we know it and the start of a new feudalism across the globe. We must resist the 2 party system in the US and elect a third-party candidate in 2012, preferably Ron Paul although it is still unclear if anyone currently in office can be trusted…
Whatever it is that you personally believe, whether it is conspiracy theories or rationalize that much of the above is hog-wash, there is one thing abundantly clear, and that is the last sentence in that letter is true, that it is unclear if anyone in public office can be trusted at all. They do not appear to represent the people the way the republic was designed. They seem to represent “something” else. What that “something else” is creates the debate of theories. But everyone can agree that “something else” is the priority and not the people of the American Republic.
My protest to the global meetings is simple. America taught those commercial cities how to generate money. For instance, in Cancun at La Isla Mall there is a restaurant there called La Madonna that has fantastic Italian food. I like the place because of the really cool statues in the dinning room that reach all the way to the ceiling. Cancun likes to pretend that they are international, including having authentic restaurants like that fantastic Italian restaurant. But at a closer look, the mall there which is the pinnacle of shopping in Cancun has its influence from the United States. It’s no different really than how the United States spends the most money of any country on the United Nations, yet it seems that the United States is always the target of these summits that have UN leanings and mandates.
Without the United States nobody meets on anything or even has a discussion about what’s good for the greater good. And I am sick and tired of global elitists; overly educated in all the wrong topics, who insist on spewing from their mouths rhetoric that is destructive to the future of the human race. I’m not talking about this whole global warming gimmick, or the politics of the poor and depressed, or even the sex starved losers who propel the sex slave trade, (especially in Rio, and Geneva, home of the UN) The meetings attended by these half-baked fools in an infantile attempt to wrestle for themselves some political influence in some future great society of which they are the architects do not belong in American Culture. They do not have a right to “open” our borders, or negotiate on our behalf an ounce of freedom for the greater good because in doing so they take freedom away from those countries they are trying to help by putting out the light of example that is the United States. (CLICK HERE TO LEARN ABOUT THE SEX TRADE IN RIO).
In the meantime, it is time to recognize who does what in the world of influence, and it is the United States who sets the pace for everyone. We are the bar everyone else must reach. Lowering that bar so others can “feel” like they are playing the same game will not work, and will not be tolerated.
Notice how Obama in this next clip blames all the spending on the Republican Congress, and the people clap, mindless to the facts. The President is openly misleading the public. He is pushing a global agenda at all costs, even at the expense of the truth.
So believe what you want, but caution yourselves against the small-minded who actually believe they have the authority to take freedom from America and give it to others who have not earned it, serving under failed political philosophies in a quest for personal power. Such minds are the creators of Agenda 21 which sounds good in a theory concocted in an ideological, far-away land where blue waves splash against sandy beaches and women walk around topless, and the drinks are cheap. But those theories do not live up to the reality of life, proved here in the United States under the fires of freedom, where liberty was invented and that blueprint was copyrighted by America. Everything else is just a cheap imitation including Agenda 21.
The debate of the day should be on what our tax money is spent on, because billions of our tax money is used on these global ideas. Yet we have a president and a rabid group of politicians who want more……….why…….because they have an agenda and they cannot achieve that agenda without the legalized theft of our tax money. It is not a radical idea to insist on keeping what is ours to begin with, to be used for the needs of our culture, and not some crack-pot idea concocted by those naive elitists who are marching to a different drummer all together.
