From the Left-Wing theater of the Absurd

Left-wing loons shamelessly pandering to an incredibly small percentage of the population, this is beyond stupid.

School Told to Call Kids ‘Purple Penguins’ Because ‘Boys and Girls’ Is Not Inclusive to Transgender
A Nebraska school district has instructed its teachers to stop referring to students by “gendered expressions” such as “boys and girls,” and use “gender inclusive” ones such as “purple penguins” instead.
“Don’t use phrases such as ‘boys and girls,’ ‘you guys,’ ‘ladies and gentlemen,’ and similarly gendered expressions to get kids’ attention,” instructs a training document given to middle-school teachers at the Lincoln Public Schools.
“Create classroom names and then ask all of the ‘purple penguins’ to meet on the rug,” it advises.
The document also warns against asking students to “line up as boys or girls,” and suggests asking them to line up by whether they prefer “skateboards or bikes/milk or juice/dogs or cats/summer or winter/talking or listening.”
“Always ask yourself . . . ‘Will this configuration create a gendered space?’” the document says.~snip~
And as always the superintendent pompously sits there and tells parents basically,"who cares what you think?" and then tries to claim they don't get involved in politics or gender.Like denying it makes it rue.
You know it's way past time to demand that schools simply get back to teaching reading,writing and math. It hasn't happened in so long I don't think they know how any more.
The only answer is to wrest control of schools away from the federal government, who are joined at the hip with teachers unions and the democrat party, and giving control back to the local school districts.
Until then the none stop indoctrination of our children will continue.

The Unhappiness that divides us all

I ran across this article on Front Page Magazine today and found a lot of great points.

The Left’s Religion of Unhappiness
If the left sees anyone being happy, it must immediately set out to ruin the fun. The simple joy of others turns out to be only a cover for monstrous abuses that they are determined to make everyone else see. If it’s an object, it was made by oppressed workers. If it’s a social group, it’s discriminatory. If it’s food, it makes you sick. If it’s a sport, it’s abusive. If it’s art, then it’s escapism from the misery the left creates.
To be of the left is to confuse perpetual outrage with righteousness. The professional leftist believes that the path to utopia on earth lies in constantly denouncing thought criminals until they have all been unthought so that only their kind of ethical and empathetic people walk the earth.
Like most utopians, they plan for a utopia that they could never actually live in.
The only quibble I have with it is it seems the author kind of chalks up the lefts unhappiness and hatred for anything hinting at satisfaction to be more of a character flaw or hiccup in the leftist personality.
Most likely there are those but I believe it to be deeper and of a more insidious nature.
The quest for power, unadulterated and unchallenged raw power to bend society to their will.

At one time even democrats did things to unite us, like during WWII Roosevelt and Truman united the country to win the war. Even JFK, as flawed as he was, united the country to go to the moon by appealing to the "can do" attitudes and educational, industrial know how of Americans.
Most Americans felt fairly good about their lot in life until Jimmy Carter.
After 4 years of the peanut farmer people got pretty fed up and elected Ronald Reagan and that's when the the liberals switched to grievance and the whining started.
Liberals found that by dividing us by sex, race ,religion income and finding or making up things to be aggrieved about galvanized certain sectors of the population.
That gave us Billy "BJ" Clinton who kind of got serious about things in his second term.
Liberal grievance wasn't enough to give us Al Gore but we still ended up with a "kinder,gentler" republican in GWB.

With Obama the liberal/democrats are in full divider mode and that's where we find ourselves now.
A nation divided by professionals who hope to keep that simmering pot they've stirred hot.
It's all a manipulation and too many people keep falling for it.

What does Ebola and the Zombie Apocalypse have in common?

The comparison may be a bit of a stretch by stay with me for a minute.
Anyone familiar with the zombie apocalypse genre knows that survivors are pretty much on their own as zombies over run the world.
In every book,movie and television show out there the governments fail to anticipate, plan for or develop strategies to protect anyone from the coming zombie plague.
Including themselves.
What governments essentially become is what they are right now, incompetent.

So the current bumbling around by the federal government and it's agencies to contain the Ebola virus in the United States shouldn't be any surprise. Especially considering who's in charge.
Every fiction writer in the world got it right and the majority of people who become fans of apocalyptic fiction have no problem believing it.
Because they know, like everyone else, that a huge megalithic, bureaucracy is too big and ponderous to move quickly enough to avoid disaster. Then you add partisan politics to it and the gridlock virtually assures zombie domination.

If no one really expects government to protect them from a zombie apocalypse then why would we expect them to protect us from  Ebola or  Enterovirus D68?
The situation is probably iffy either way but a smaller government with less red tape and a real leader in charge may be able to move quickly enough to prevent a disaster.
But a smaller government with less reach into our lives  appears to be fictional also.

The Media and a River in Egypt

I gotta tell you that that the reason I haven't been blogging for the last few weeks is because I've been dumbstruck about some of the news I've been reading.
Especially when it comes to the introduction of various diseases pouring across our borders due to the deliberate malfeasance of Obama's government.  
You know, the one that thinks it's OK to use the IRS as a tool to suppress dissent from the opposition.

Thinking about it though I'm really not surprised because the precedent has already been set in the early stages of the AIDS "epidemic" where a communicable disease went from a health issue to "homophobia" in nothing flat. The hope being that those who were adamant about not having to change their lifestyle would allow it to permeate into society instead of just the slightly less than 2% of the population affected by it.
Funny thing is still after all these years the highest incidence of infections still persist in that less than 2% population.
But making AIDS a political issue as opposed  to a health issue was effective at least as far as finding treatments so people could live with the virus along with full bore research into a preventative vaccine or cure.

That's why discussions about the Entarovirus 68 or Ebola have gone from health issues to racism in short order.
No matter who it kills.

So I can't help thinking that allowing these immigrants in, legal or otherwise, and then dispensing them around the country is a deliberate and calculated move by the progressive left and why the liberal/commie media avoids the subject of where these diseases originate from.
The sole purpose is to galvanize the American public to demand that these ailments be cured in some way, or anything else to be done aside from closing our borders and restricting travel from areas infected with these health hazards.
It's the only way they feel they can force us to deal with diseases that have never been in this country before, to import them and then scare us into believing that the only thing that can save us is government funded research.
