Obama´s Preschool Proposal
Is The Magical Fantasy Of
A Preschool Student

Gail Collins believes it’s long past time for government to do more to subsidize preschool, as President Obama suggested during the State of the Union. Her big regret is that this wasn’t accomplished in the early 1970s, when it was being advanced by Walter Mondale. As Collins writes about this topic, she refers to these government proposals as part of the “drive to make quality preschool education available to every family in the United States.” Because it’s just that easy, right? Where does Collins—and Obama for that matter—get the child-like faith that somehow getting the federal government

Comments:
So are all the rest of his Marxist programs he dreams up to achieve that Utopia that doesn´t and never will exist. They just want to get ahold of the little kiddies so they can start their evil, anti-American brainwashing even earlier.

We can´t graduate kids who can read and do math now.
Work on that before we start a preschool program, which is nothing more than free daycare and more union jobs for preschool attendants--all with money we don´t have.

This is beyond stupid. Colossally stupid.

Preschool serves no purpose. This is simply taxpayer funded daycare.

Government schools aren’t turning kids into politically correct, sexually obsessed, lock-step marching communists fast enough to suit Obama.

Their three meals a day, take home meals, week-end meals, in-school day-care for babies of 12 year old students, and after-school student day-care aren´t creating total government dependancy quite fast enough.

Headstart has been a sort of proving ground for pre-kindergarten, government run, ´education,´ and is a BIG Government education policy´s agenda. Pres. 0bama now tauts such early education as beneficial for the future of all America´s children, but what do the stats regarding putting such young children into pre-school really show and what has been the actural result regarding children whose, ´education,´ begins at such a young age when placed with many other children & regimented in that micro-managed atmosphere. Their carefree childhood, time with family and freedom to explore as past generations have always done is gone as BIG Government eagerly assumes the role of parents. There is now over a generation of Headstart graduates who can be examined for any positive or negative results of such early schooling on their lives as adults. So far the studies & stats don´t generally look good.

So the question which must first be answered before adding yet another layer to the Federal beuracracy is, are such children so, ´educated,´ in a pre-school atmosphere DEMONSTRABLY better able to face the world in their personal pursuit of happiness later on when they graduate than we were?

No program can make a silk purse from a sow´s ear. There are large numbers of students who will never be fit for anything but manual labor or the simplest of work - but technology and the global economy have eliminated the possibility of such jobs for the great majority. It is self-deluding nonsense to pretend that this segment of the population is going to be transformed by government-educational alchemy into candidates for complex, high tech or professional jobs. This is a serious problem that will not be solved by such make-believe, make work enterprises.

It was a big wet kiss to the teacher´s union. It will also free up the welfare mother´s to seek another sleep over to keep the gravy train moving along.

#2, agree, but would add one word: "Preschool serves no good purpose."

It does serve an evil purpose. That purpose is for the Nanny State to separate children from their parents, even more than they are already.

All the better to indoctrinate children into becoming permanent future Democrat voters ... and good tattlers to Big Brother on their parents´ politically incorrect views or behavior. E.g., owning guns.

It´s not about the little toddlers of course (I will not use the term preschool these are babies).,. it is about redistributing your wealth to pay for unqualified "teachers" to babysit your kid. That´s if you´re lucky, unlucky ones have their kids abused or at best ignored. Babies want their parents not to be one of 30 other kids with runny noses and hitting each other. But like everything, follow the money.

Accomplishes absolutely nothing while life is a disaster at home. Nobody will address the desperate failings of the black culture for fear or being called a racist, this means nothing will be solved. Schools are not the root of the problem, nor are they the solution.

Indoctrination starting at about age 2 - very alarming. Children need time to ´be children´ - non-structured playing, running around, having fun in a playground. This is not the first time I´m glad to be part of the ´older generation´, but it´s sad thinking of what grandchildren and great-grands may have ahead of them.

An old truism teaches there are always two reasons: the reason they give you, and the real reason.

We know all follow-on studies show the so-called "benefits" disappear in a few years.

So, the likely real reasons? a. More teachers´ union members; b. more union campaign contributions for Dems [actually nothing more than a small fraction of the tax money spent being skimmed, laundered, and returned to the pols who want this craziness]; c. more and earlier programming of the captive kiddies; d. an ever-bigger piece of the economy in the hands of gov´t; and so on in that vein.

Have a nice day.

To any Ldotter over 60, did YOU attend pre-school?
I sure didn´t. My mother made sure I could read and write and I started kindergarten just before my 5th birthday. Until then, I was in the care of family.

Might as well be sending the tiny ones to a Communist gulag (educationally speaking) as to hand them over to federal government daycare. Or to quite a few states, for that matter.

That this is even being "suggested" is frightening.

Because that´s exactly why these Statists want this. Their purely evil designs on America´s tinest.

Facebook removes my post about
Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy
Fox News, by Todd Starnes    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 9:45:44 PM     Post Reply
Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

   

 



 
Democrat: Voters ´Frustrated

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
