Mark Steyn declares America
´doomed´ in wake of Pop
Tart gun suspension

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:Donttaxmebro, 3/11/2013 6:36:36 PM

On Rush Limbaugh’s radio show on Monday, National Review’s Mark Steyn explained why an incident involving a seven-year-old boy’s punishment and the subsequent reaction for chewing a Pop Tart in the shape of a gun is a sign the country is “doomed.” Steyn, author of “After America: Get Ready for Armageddon,” compared this generation of children, who may have felt threatened by the so-called Pop Tart gun, to the American generation that stormed the beaches of Normandy. “You’re doomed, America,” Steyn said. “You’re done for. No society can survive this level of stupidity.

Doomed for stupidity sounds about right...

Next a box of Pop Tarts (which are the very best treat ever, IMHO) will come with a warning on the label:

WARNING! Not to be eaten into the shape of any object offensive to anybody.

Lucky for the kid he didn´t eat it into the shape of a cross.

It should be required that teachers understand little boys before they castrate them. From the time a little boy is born he is Superman, and will make a weapon out of anything. He will save little girls from monsters, and save the world from bad guys. I know, because I was once a little boy! So happy to have been a little boy in the 50s, where teachers understood us. Today´s teachers are complete imbiciles. We need a few male teachers who understand, not an army of women who have no clue.

Poster #5: Today´s teachers are complete imbiciles.

Not so much imbeciles as totally indoctrinated by women´s libbers into thinking little girls are perfect as born, and little boys should be pounded into "little girl" behavior as there is "really no difference" between the sexes, it´s just that "boys persist in non-productive behavior" because they really aren´t "as smart" as girls.

Wait..if they do believe the above statement, they actually are imbeciles.

And this from "educators." How farcical. But I think Steyn is wrong about this evidencing doom. This absurdity is recognized as such by everyone except the sad, earnest and, no doubt,low I.Q. teachers and administators who made this decision. I don´t like the phrase those who can´t do, teach but it seems appropriate here.

The PC sensitivity indoctrination is apparently spreading fast to a public school near you. In a personal experience, last week in a "professional development" session on suicide prevention at the high school where I work, a counselor warned us sternly that there was a picture of a gun in the video she was about to present. Oooooh. Imagine that, a mean gun. I rolled my eyes, almost walked out. Next year is my last before retirement. That´s when I don´t have to put up with it, and I won´t.

I heard the segment. Mark´s exasperation and disbelief were impossible to hide. I share it, we´re toast. It´s over, except for the load and load part.

Next up: A Muslim student bringing in a suicide vest with Semtex attached to a New York public school for show-and-tell, discussing and advocating jihad in America and getting an A.

If Nanny Bloomberg or Michelle Obama have their way, a warning will be issued, eating these poptarts may require counseling.

This country is doomed with the level of stupidity that is now the norm.

Having dealt with a few seriously deficient teachers over my and my children´s school careers, I have come to believe that one of the problems is that teachers/administrators have spent their entire lives inside schools. They go to school, college, graduate school, then return to school to teach, and perhaps move up to administrative positions.

Many have lived in a school environment for their whole lives. And, after they get tenure, very little bad can happen to them, no matter how poor a job they do.

There is one grand, overarching commandment that the atheistic gods of political correctness demand their victims obey: Thou Shalt Not Think. It may start with small things, but eventually the brain short circuits and shuts down entirely (a slobbering Obama voter is born!). One would have hoped that Americans, of all people, would be immune to this debilitating disease, but alas...

Listening to Steyn,I think he was more troubled that a law had to be passed to counteract this teacher´s stupidity.Constitutionally,you can´t punish thought. The teacher thought is was a gun but the kid claimed it was a mountain.So the presumption of guilt was there on the kid. Thankfully he has a dad to stand up for him.

The teacher´s unions have tremendous clout in Md. they get a billion off the top every year for their pension fund. Maryland way overspends for the size state it is.They have one of the highest per capita incomes in the country but are always looking for new angles to pass tax increases.They constantly pass spending bills without paying for them,then a year later they sit there sobbing about how underfunded they are.

Anyway,this law will probably get a lot of opposition in the statehouse,even though it tries to protect a kid´s constitutional rights.Liberal kneejerkism over guns is the root cause of this episode.All this kid did was a form of doodling.

In an interview posted on the YouTube page owned by the filmmakers of last September’s documentary “The Muslims Are Coming” on Monday, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow targeted conservative Ann Coulter and radio host and so-called evangelist Bryan Fischer. Maddow was critical of Fischer and likened him to Coulter, author of "Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican," who Maddow insisted wasn’t to be taken seriously as a political player or a pundit, but instead just a comedian. “[A]nn Coulter was revealed not as a political player or even as a pundit, but essentially as a comedian,” Maddow explained.

On her Thursday broadcast, “The Kelly File” host Megyn Kelly brought on Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer to sound off on the latest excerpt of President Barack Obama’s interview with the New Yorker magazine’s David Remnick. In that excerpt, Obama blamed Fox News and conservative talker Rush Limbaugh for the gridlock in Washington, D.C. Krauthammer noted Obama has “the commanding heights of the culture” in his corner and said it was unbecoming of the leader of the free world to complain on those grounds. “At least he is not blaming it on climate change or George W.

On Thursday, semi-retired radio talker Neal Boortz predicted the republican party will not win control of the U.S. Senate in the 2014 midterm elections, despite all the pitfalls the democrats and president Barack Obama are facing, particularly with regards to ObamaCare. The reason, Boortz said, would be the GOP’s tendency to run on issues related to social conservatism. Boortz explained the importance to the republic for a GOP win next year while guest hosting Sean Hannity’s Thursday radio show: this whole thing about Phil Robertson and what have you – it speaks a lot to what we have

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer insisted the divide within the Republican Party has been exaggerated, adding that Republicans disagree over strategy but not ideology. “[I] think this whole thing is as you say very much blown up by the liberal media because it’s a great dramatic story,” Krauthammer said. “But here’s the fundamental contradiction. I think this analysis is wrong. It’s fundamentally wrong for this reason: The difference between what are being called the hard right and the moderates, the RINOs and the true believers, is really one

During the online-only portion of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer laid out his theory on what Obamacare’s real intended purpose is: an instrument to redistribute wealth. Krauthammer made that claim in his column last week, but he explained how it works in practice to host Bret Baier and co-panelists former New Jersey Superior Court Judge Andrew Napolitano and The Hill associate editor A.B. Stoddard. That panel was presented with a viewer who asked what would happen if an individual couldn’t pay an insurance provider in the event of some

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough hammered President Barack Obama for what he called lies during the sales job for his 2010 health care law. Scarborough was asked by Hewitt if he had any idea how many people would ultimately lose their health care coverage because of that law. Scarborough replied by saying many more Americans would be impacted by that law than what then-President George W. Bush had said in his 2003 state of the union speech regarding Iraq trying to procure yellow cake uranium from Niger.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama.
