What happened on Tuesday?

Plato said to the ancient Greeks... "if you want to know the future, it is, who is teaching the youth and what are they teaching". What have we allowed to be taught to America's youth?

The exit polls on Tuesday showed that voters aged 29 and younger voted 60% for President Obama. They also represented 19% of all who voted and they turned out in greater numbers than in 2008. They believe in the President's political philosophy of socialism, that the government is responsible for taking care of people and giving them free stuff. This is how these younger voters view the role of government. This 60% of younger voters got the President elected. The President was saying what these younger voters have been taught to believe.

Where did they learn to think this way? They learned it in our schools and at home. They are the generation raised on welfare, food stamps, government housing, all provided by Democrat politicians over the past 40 years. At school, they were taught that the American system is unjust, rigged for the rich, that America is a racist nation, that America bullies the rest of the world and takes other nations resources and leaves those nations poor, and that capitalism is the evil force behind all this social injustice, and that it must be destroyed. They were taught that this is why they grew up in poverty. In short, they are taught to hate the way their county was founded and they must be the generation to change it to a just socialist/communist State.

For some of you reading this, you are saying, I know the teachers at my child's school and they are not like this. Keep in mind that the Southern States and there colleges and universities, and public schools have been the last to embrace this new view of America. What I am talking about is this. The textbooks used in our schools and universities have for the most part been written by socialist/communist professors from Northern colleges and universities. It is from these textbooks that our children learned the President's political philosophy and socialist concepts.

We read stories in our newspapers on how our schools are failing to teach our children. Test scores keep getting lower in math, science, and English. Yet the worst scores are in American History. Why? Because the textbooks in history no longer teach our founding principles of why we set up a Republic and not a Democracy, that America was founded by Christians who believed our rights came from God and not the government, that free people prosper in a free capitalist economic system of hard work, and that America has been a force for good in the world.

We must get control of how our children are being educated. It is one thing to question what our country is doing and debate the issues on both sides, but that is not what is happening in our institutions of higher learning. They have become institutions of one sided propaganda to change our county to socialism through the indoctrination of our children.

Bill Ayers a close friend of the President said in the 1960's " Kill your parents, they are the problem!" What he was telling all the young college radicals back then, was their parents were taught to believe in the traditional founding of our country, in traditional American values of hard work, strong families, traditional marriage, and until they were dead and gone, they, the youth with a new vision of the futher, could not build a Socialist America.

Bill Ayers spent his adult life as a University Professor of Education. His job for over 40 years was to be invited by most of the Colleges and Universities throughout our nation; that educated future school teachers; to sit on the Board that conferred new Doctorial Degrees in Education. He would be listed as an expert in the field of Education. What he was expert in was insuring that no Doctorial Degree in Education would be given to anyone he did not approve. He would only approve those that he was told by the professors at that university, who he knew were good practicing socialists, that the candidate for the degree was one of them, a good socialist. Bill Ayers and others like him would become the gate keepers for what our educational system has become in America. Factories to produce Socialists.

Who runs our schools? Educators that have a Doctorial Degree in Education run our schools. For the most part, they got their degree thanks to Bill Ayer and others like him. The same Degree in Education that qualified them to be Principals and Superintendents in our nations schools, and also become professors in our colleges and universities that had a School of Education. They would become the professors who taught our future teachers we hired for our public schools. They became the gate keepers of our educational system throughout our nation.

Well, most of those who believed in the old values that built America to be the greatest force for good in the history of mankind have died, and those of us remaining are now out numbered by our children who have been lied too. They are winning! Tuesday's election proved it. Dark times are coming!

Ironside, Charlie.

A good blog; I agree with many of your points. I have seen examples of exactly what you are talking about.

The question is this... can it be changed? I considered teaching when I was retiring from the military. I would have starved to death! Many college graduates choose the better salary of a business related job instead of the low pay and headaches of teaching.

The problem as I see it is that (in addition to you rpoints) young people seem to believe that this is the way to go - really. I admire their optimism and enthusiasm, but when I ask the realistic questions of of who will work and pay for all this and who will defend our country from the bad people that are still in the world - they have no answer. Or worse, they answer that those things will not matter once all the 'old ways' and "dinosaurs like me" are gone.

I believe the next generation is moving toward a bad awakening and a tough life.

Ironside commented on Saturday, Nov 10, 2012 at 08:41 AM

The cold hard facts are these. They will never believe different unless they experience a significate emotional shock. How does the drug addicted person change their life. By a near death experience. So it is with all bad human behavior. Something so terrible must happen to cause them to re-evaluate their belief system and what they are doing with their lives. At this point, the Republicans must give the President what ever he wants. The economy must be seen by his supporters as his economy not Bush's economy, so that when it collapses they can blame no one but the president. By giving him what he wants he will run up even higher debt than his first term causing rapid inflation. Bread will cost $5.00, milk $12.00, gas $15.00 a gallon. At this point, even his supporter will wake up a demand it stop. The Republican must then remind the American people that they voted for his economic plan and that the only way to stop it is vote for Conservative Republicans in 2014. If the Republicans get veto proof majorities in Congress, everything can be undone. Without this happing, our nation will continue to decline and generations of Americans will live in poverty and desperation.

Great blog, OldIronside!

Scindapsus commented on Saturday, Nov 10, 2012 at 15:12 PM

What a sad, strange world it is in which modern conservatives live.

They believed the conservative propaganda machine's assertions that traditional polling methods are worthless, and that the CPM's way (which happened to predict a Romney romp) was better, only to find that the traditional, well-tested methods were the ones that were worked.

They make up facts (and quotations from Plato) and can't understand why people no longer take them at their word.

They watch this country's wealthiest members continue to capture an ever-increasing proportion of the wealth of the country, and they blame the poorest members for it (failing to see the irony that it is not the "takers," but rather the self-proclaimed "givers," who seem to be ending up with everything).

They cheered when Romney insisted that it was his right and duty to pay as little income tax as the current tax code allows, and they cheered when Romney attacked the 47% for doing exactly the same thing (but without his $250 million cushion).

They bemoan wasteful federal government spending, but consider it an article of faith that we need to spend at least five times as much on our military as all of our potential enemies combined.

They claim to oppose abortions because human life begins at conception, but they oppose virtually every strategy known to reduce rates of abortion, and they express no concern about the 50% of living humans that die before even being implanted in the uterus.

They showed extraordinary creativity in trying to paint Obama as "not one of us" (he's a liberal, he's Muslim, he's not an American citizen, he's a terrorist, he's a socialist, he hates America, etc.) without mentioning the real reason "he's not one of us," and yet he still got elected again. Little wonder many of them have taken to Facebook and Twitter and in frustration let us know which difference really bothers them.

And perhaps saddest of all, they equate viewpoints different from their own with the End of Days.

watchpig commented on Saturday, Nov 10, 2012 at 20:18 PM

It comes down to a couple of simple principles.

Democrats are enablers - Like a drug dealer they enable people (the poor/needy) to live a bit of a better life. On the surface this a great thing.

Republicans empower people - Like a great teacher or entrepreneur they push people to better themselves.

Scindapsus commented on Saturday, Nov 10, 2012 at 22:42 PM

watchpig, you forgot "In principle this would be a great thing" at the end of your last paragraph.

Other than that, a fine example of bumper sticker sloganeering.

Ironside commented on Sunday, Nov 11, 2012 at 01:06 AM

To all who have served in our nations military and took the oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies Foreign and Domestic. Ever wonder what Domestic means?

Scindapsus commented on Sunday, Nov 11, 2012 at 08:58 AM

I can only speak for myself, Ironside, but sure, probably when I was five years old or so. I think I've been familiar with the diverse meanings of "Domestic" since then.

But your question makes me wonder something else. You seem to be unable to accept that other Americans could have a legitimate viewpoint different from your own, or to accept that some of your "facts" are not true. So when I take your original blog post here and your latest one, it sounds like you want to take military action against Americans who happen to have a interpretation of the Constitution different from your own. Is that a fair assessment?

Ironside commented on Sunday, Nov 11, 2012 at 14:09 PM

Scindapsus: I have a problem with a President who violates our First Amendment Right to Freedom of Religion by forcing thru a law that requires the Catholic Church to violate it's Religious Teachings. The same teachings of the Church that existed when our country was founded, a teaching that "live from the time of conception is sacred and must be protected". The First Amendment states "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;..... Obamacare does prohibit the Catholic Church, and, as for my comment about the military oath I took, it means I will not be silent when I see those amoung us "Domestic" Liberals, Progessives, Socialists and Communists who willing violate the law for there own political gain. This is not an issue of a different point of view. The First Amendment is clear "Congress shall make no law". There are legal ways to change our Constitution, but I don't see anything being done by Liberals/Socialists to do it the legal way. Liberals say sit down an shut up, your out of touch with the times, your not cool,hip,or happing, your old fashioned, your time has come and gone. So when I see this distructive childhood behavior on the part of Liberals, I have an obligation to my country to speak out about the abomination the Liberal Left has become, a political threat to the suvival of our nation. I stand by my oath.

Scindapsus commented on Sunday, Nov 11, 2012 at 15:51 PM


All I can say is every time you put thought to paper, and send it our way, you make me feel sorry for you and your weird, sad world all over again. Your facts are fake, your quotes are fake, your logic is internally inconsistent, you deny the obvious, and yet you can't understand why everyone else doesn't see The Truth in exactly the same way that you do.

The real abomination is someone claiming to be an American who likes the idea of using military force to prevent any Americans except Conservatives from having a say in how our government runs.

22 commented on Monday, Nov 12, 2012 at 09:54 AM

Ironside, remember ask not what you can do for your country ask instead what your country should do for you. I liked how you compared the low or bottom for a drug addict as the moment of change. It leads me to believe there is hope...

Scindapsus, Your rhetoric reminds me of the great and many uses of tits on a bore hog. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhgAPK...

Scindapsus commented on Monday, Nov 12, 2012 at 10:57 AM

I liked that comment too, except that I don't think s/he really believes it (or, in true conservative fashion, thinks it only applies to "others"). To wit:

1) Did the election has caused him/her to "experience a significate emotional shock"? Sure sounds like it.

2) Does s/he as a result "believe different"? (and be honest here; s/he did not mean that the shocked drug user's "different belief" was that they needed to resort to harsher measures to support their habit!) You tell me...

22, I've long since given up expecting to persuade anyone of anything here. However, any time you want to intelligently discuss instead of vacuously insult, feel free.

22 commented on Monday, Nov 12, 2012 at 11:06 AM

Scindapsus, every time you put thought to paper, and send it my way, you make me feel sorry for you and your weird, sad world. Your facts are fake, your quotes are fake, your logic is internally inconsistent, you deny the obvious, and yet you can't understand why everyone else doesn't see The Truth in exactly the same way that you do.

Scindapsus commented on Monday, Nov 12, 2012 at 12:41 PM

Standard conservative ploy, 22, but most people realize that just because you use the same words as someone with whom you disagree doesn't make you right and them wrong.

On the other hand, I guess the failure to understand this is at least partly why so many conservatives were surprised by the election results ("But conservatives used polls too, and they said that Romney would get 330 electoral college votes, not Obama!").

I'm familiar with the extent to which folks can "double down" on their own beloved facts and Truth, but it would be most interesting if you could actually show a single case of me using a fake quote, or demonstrate any internal inconsistency in my logic.

22 commented on Monday, Nov 12, 2012 at 13:20 PM

Scindapsus,I dont think you get my point. You call me out into intelligent dicussion in lue of "vacuosly" insult. But as I see it your intelligent discussions are more intelligent insult. Far more delusioning on ones self is the intelligent insult. Just an intelligent approch to nothing more than vacuous insult. In this you will find your internal inconsistency. 22

Scindapsus commented on Monday, Nov 12, 2012 at 13:52 PM

Nice try but no go. The only way you can make this work is by ignoring the specifics of my posts, and focusing exclusively on the harsh tone that they can contain.

Or, I suppose, you could be equating logic and evidence with vacuousness, in which case there's really nothing more to say.

22 commented on Monday, Nov 12, 2012 at 15:10 PM

You suppose?

Bryant commented on Tuesday, Nov 13, 2012 at 16:21 PM

Ironside, I have attempted to ignore this post but, like an addict, I have to have my fix. Your post is a lot of twaddle. You use the identical technique of pundits on both the left and the right. Take something you disagree with (the re-election of the President), pick a statistic of your choice (young peoples' voting tendencies), and weave it into the handbasket we're all going to Hell in (amazing how you brought in Bill Ayres and laid the entire education failure at his feet).

I presume your next post will attack blacks and the percentage of them that voted for Obama because it means more welfare and handouts - completely ignoring those middle and upper-class blacks who have no interest in government handouts. And then there's always the Hispanics next. And then white women with degrees.

I'm always amazed at how well you know what the President wants and how much it's going to cost us. Do everyone a favor and look at the Federal Budget over the past 16 years. See where it began to truly skyrocket and what it was being spent on. Try Red Ink, by David Wessel, an economics editor for the Wall Street Journal (so you want be influenced by any liberal claptrap).

By the way, I have two sons. Both employed, self-supporting, and one of them paying back student loans (not grants). They in no way resemble your indictment of "young people". I would not presume to state what they believe politically.

Scindapsus, good post.

You had me at "Twaddle."
