And do it NOW.
I figured that since this is a most appropriate call to action, it would also lend itself to a most appropriate acronym… D.O.P.E.S.!
That’s what this page is about: exposing the intellectually and morally debillitating effects that our public education has on young students, calling upon you as parents and adults, by calling you to ACTION through a sort of “show and tell” — graphic and verbal examples of why we SHOULD and why we MUST ditch our public education system.
These are real-world examples that underscore — better than anything I could say — just what is wrong, grievously wrong, with our public school system fundamentally: a compulsory gulag of state-funded, state-controlled, anti-Christian, anti-liberty education.
Of course, you don’t need me to tell you how bad it has gotten. At least in the 1950s (before my time), you could still pray in school prior to embarking on the day’s humanistic paean to the messianic presidencies of FDR, Abraham Lincoln, Lyndon Johnson and perhaps William Jefferson Blythe III-Clinton and Barack Obama, in contrast to the satanic presidencies of James Monroe, Grover Cleveland and Calvin Coolidge.
At least back then (in the 1950s), you could still learn some convoluted version of “real” math and “real” science… sort of… to a point. At least it wasn’t the awful Common Core curriculum drivel that now compels students to give “friendly” answers instead of the correct ones!
But, generations of parents have become anesthetized and accustomed to the mediocrity of the system. Just like they have become accustomed to the mediocrity of the political system and its leading figures. “Yes, it may be a hot mess, but it’s OUR hot mess!” They may howl and complain when little Johnny or Janie have their “rights” trampled on, or when the kiddies are compelled to read or write or do something that the parents (finally) find objectionable.
“Sorry, parents. Here, it’s in loco parentis. That’s Latin for, ‘We’re in charge of your kids and YOU’RE NOT!'”
Then there are the Christian parents who seem to think that it’s better to have their kids embedded as “godly” influences inside the public schools, rather than to remove them. After all, if we take out the “true” Christian students, then, all HELL really will break loose!
I see. Better to sacrifice your children’s intellect, emotions, spiritual, moral and physical well-being (and possibly their future) on the altar of Let’s Not Be a Fanatic About It, and join the mindless, moronic throng in support of our venerable American system of publicly-funded humanist indoctrination.
As I mentioned in a recent post, it’s just too easy to find glaring examples of how illogical and inane the schools have become. Plenty of private schools (tuition-based) and charter schools (tax-based) are almost as bad. But they are still nothing compared to the grotesque government gaffes that are committed every day within the confines of the gun-free, drug-free (ha!), God-free (and therefore) liberty-free zones state-sponsored “re-education” centers.
My job is easy. The proliferation of these stories in the media, mostly in the new and “alternative” media (which for the most part have become the new mainstream media sources for a new generation of news and information consumers) means that this page will practically build itself.
There’s no shortage of material with which to build. So, let the construction begin.
While we’re at it, let the RECONSTRUCTION begin!
For an example of how to beat something with something, here is probably the best online port in a storm and academic “safe haven” for tempest-tossed parents and their children to sail to and drop anchor in. Click this link to have a look. (Both of these links, by the way, are my personal affiliate links. I encourage you to use them!)
The War on Drugs Has Been Incentivized to Become A War on Kids. Your school-age children are the prisoners and victims in this war. I say we bring our boys and girls HOME!
The Fruits of Public Schooling? This young lady will bring a tear to your eye. She will also bring a frown to your lips as you ponder whether she is just spoofing or if she really is this incompetent.
Lean Forward… and Listen Closely to What Melissa Harris-Perry Says About Your Kids (Correction: OUR Kids). You raise them, you feed them, you clothe them and pay for their education; but they really belong to “US!”
Mother is Shocked–SHOCKED!–at the Ungodliness of What Goes On Inside an Ungodly Public School. The best way to avoid all the drama is to not become a willing patron of it in the first place.
I, Pencil. Here is what happens when an immovable object called a bureaucracy meets an irresistible force called zero intelligence.
Canadian Kids Receive Vaccinations at School Without Parents’ Consent Take your shots, kids. It’s the law. But don’t worry, it’s voluntary. You can always say ‘no’ (sort of). Like “voluntary” income tax. Like “affordable” healthcare.

Update Nov. 2020: You may have noticed that this page was offline for a while. I have decided to reinstate it here, mainly for archival as well as entertainment purposes. I may update it from time to time. But, regardless, the gist of what is said here is still relevant… now more than ever!
