    1. "A new video featuring Ed Asner that calls for raising taxes on the wealthy is drawing fire from some critics. The Emmy-Award winning actor is the voice behind the California Federation of Teachers’ video “Tax the Rich: An Animated Fairytale.”

    2. ...a cartoon history of how rich people have gotten richer through tax loopholes, tax evasion and shipping jobs overseas.

    3. “In 20 years, rich people doubled their share of the land’s income: schools, public safety, roads, parks, libraries, public transportation all went into decline,” he says in the video. “The rich people didn’t care, they said everyone gets what they deserve."

    4. This is why we have such a poor product resulting from the 'education' system.
    And why the Pod People are so anxious to vote as they did in the election.

    Clearly....this is indoctrination in Marxist class warfare, not education.


    5. Look at the posts by board Leftists and you'll see mirror images of this inculcation from merdivorous mentors.


    6. And this is what they've been drilling about free market capitalism:

    7. And this is where it comes from. As of 2009, the financial assets of the 115 major tax-exempt foundations of the Left add up to $104.56 billlion. Not only is this total not less than the financial assets of the 75 foundations of the Right, it was more than ten times greater! "The New Leviathan," Horowitz and Laksin, p. 8

    a. Bradley, Olin, Scaife, the “Big Three” conservative foundations, not one has assets exceeding $1 billion. (Olin has been defunct since 2005).





    The schools, the media,....America's fate is sealed.

    All hail the late, great United States of America.


    Next stop.....Global Governance.

    There is a book I think you might enjoy reading, "Lies my Teacher Told Me" by James Loewen. It's pretty entertaining, but the real theme is how political and ideological pressures shape textbooks and lead to factual errors as well as bad analysis. He has four of five other books in the same vein.

    It all began when Dr. Loewen co-authored a new Mississippi History textbook in 1972. It took an extended court battle to get it approved for use and was never widely used. The books it was meant to replace were truly wretched, and anystudent who actually blieved them ould be severely disadvantaged at any reputable institution of higher learning.

    DISCLAIMER: Jim Loewen was my Division Chairman for several years and we had a number of good natured arguments over "Mississippi: Conflict & Change" and I think he got a couple of examples in "Lies" from me! He definitely needs the royalties, as recieving a Harvard PhD did little to prepare him for the real world.

    What an absolute disgrace that filthy propaganda film is. And some of these lefties have the gall to deny the impulse to indoctrination among leftist radicals in our school system.

    yeah, for years they taught that Christopher Columbus discover America.
    First off he did discover North or South America.
    The Island he landed on already had people living there, thus proving that someone else discovered the land way before him, but look who gets credit. Nuff said.

    And, which of the Leftist-curriculum writers are including the 'Kennewick Man' who probably represented the fact that Europeans first settled the continent?

    Nah...the attempt is to obfuscate so the Left can continue with propaganda about the evil white men slaying millions of 'native Americans.'

    Is that story copacetic with you?


    Heck...we sure can't give those Europeans....the 'ol' dead white men' credit...can we.
    Not and keep with the program.....
