What the federal government and the lakota school district have in common

During the government shutdown we have seen national monuments and war memorials barricaded. We have seen national parks shut down, we have seen thugs enforcing these barricades while the President plays golf.

With the Lakota Levy attempts, we see cuts to school busing, to extra curricular activities including sports and after school clubs, all the while the teachers still get paid more on average than the rest of the community and all the while they get over three months off per year while many in the community are lucky to get 2-3 weeks off for the whole year.

All the teachers at these schools get large salaries and nice big pensions, while the rest of the community is lucky to hold onto their jobs at all.

Now with the latest levy attempt, we are asked to part with more of our hard earned money to fund ‘technology and security’. To which I can’t help but incredulously ask the question “what for?”

Why do we need more technology and more security, when our students already have state of the art learning centers?

Why do we need to be extorted for more of our hard earned money when the teachers are still getting their annual raises?

Why won’t the school district cut its costs and balance its budgets, instead of raising its debt ceiling and asking for ever more cash from the struggling tax payer?

You see the Lakota School District, among many others, is just like the federal government; corrupt to the core. They simply refuse to balance their budgets and make hard cuts where necessary.

Both the teachers of the Lakota district and the congressmen in Washington still get their pay, still get amazing benefits, still get tons of time off, still get to enjoy lives of relative luxury, all the while the tax payer is not only footing the bill, but is finding it harder and harder just to pay their own bills!

And what happens when we say NO to new taxes? Well, they get all upset and use the same old thuggish union tactics; they cut out all the nice convenient stuff and hit us where it hurts. The schools get rid of busing, the federal government shuts down the parks. The schools shut down after school clubs, the federal government barricades monuments. What a pathetic situation we find ourselves in when both our federal and local governments behave like spoiled children!

What exactly is it that these teachers, this school district is trying to teach our children anyway? That its OK to act like a spoiled brat when you don’t get your way? That you should be spiteful to others and cry and cry until you get what you want? Where is the sense of responsibility? Where are they teaching our kids to make tough choices and to do the right thing? Where are they teaching our kids about respect and reasoning?

I feel bad for my generation growing up in this ongoing recession, but I dread to think what it must be like for the school kids of today.¬†We’ve got whiny brats in Washington, and whiny brats in the school district. What a sad state of affairs.

I truly hope there are at least enough grown ups in the Lakota School District next month to vote NO for this stupid levy, and start pushing for fiscal responsibility and to ask the school administrators to act like grown ups.

Freedom dies within a generation

First off I would like to say a big thank you to all the liberty groups out there; from the libertarians to the Tea Party groups. Keep up the great work, you have no idea just how vital you are to the cause of freedom, and just how perilously close we are from a collectivist abyss.

Freedom really does die within a generation. Just a couple of decades ago Margaret Thatcher set Britain straight and pulled the country out from the death spiral of socialism. Her privatization policies revitalized England and put it back on track toward prosperity.

Today England is sliding back toward socialism. Guns are banned, healthcare costs soar while service plummets, and even the most intelligent people among the British population believe that guns should be banned in all countries and healthcare should be free for all.

It’s no secret why I moved to the United States. I did so to have a chance at freedom and to build a life for myself the way that I saw fit. Today Barack Obama and his string of thuggish democrats seek to destroy this great country with their warped view of fairness.

I appeal to all Americans, do not give up this fight. England has been dying a quiet death over the last century. Progressives and their collectivist ideologies have ruined the once mighty Empire and all its gifts to the world.

Today there are three main party’s in Britain: The Liberal Democrats (extremely liberal), The Labour Party (extremely socialist) and the Conservatives (who their leader describes as ‘liberal conservatives’ and ‘compassionate conservatives’) Truly England has slipped and it will not be long before it experiences ruin, especially if the Labour Party wins the next general election under the leadership of ‘Red Ed’ Milliband.

Services Of Remembrance Are Held For The Fallen On Armistice Day

So keep up the good fight, and attack emotional stupidity with calm reasoning. We are right in our fight, and we will prevail. Do not allow this country to die a quiet death the way others have.
