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

Forbes Magazine, by Carrie Lukas

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/16/2013 1:46:15 PM

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.

#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.

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.

Following up last weekend’s official White House photo of President Obama talking on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the administration today released another phone photo, this one of a conversation with French President Francois Hollande. This one comes from Key Largo, Fla., where Obama is spending the weekend before returning to Washington to host a reception Monday for the 2012 and 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Champions before moving on to fundraising events Tuesday. “The President welcomed the strong, unified stance of the United States and the European Union regarding Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, including

While IRS officials were targeting Tea Party groups for special scrutiny of their 501(c)3 tax exempt applications, the IRS also hired a policeman who had been prosecuted by the Justice Department — and convicted in federal court — of using his access to the FBI’s NCIC system to tip off a terror suspect about the bureau’s surveillance. The leak wrecked a major terror investigation. He is still at the IRS. Weiss Russell (he has changed his name from “Weiss Rasool,” the name under which he was convicted), is currently employed as a financial management analyst in the IRS Deputy Chief Financial Officer’s

Two days after a shocking defeat, liberals are still grousing about the Senate spiking the nomination of former NAACP Legal Fund Director Debo Adegbile to be head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. What really burns them up is not just that Republicans successfully filibustered one of President Obama’s choices for a government post but that six Democrats joined with them. But rather than take responsibility for putting forward a controversial figure who was sure to provoke bitter opposition from both sides of the aisle, liberals are reverting to form by blaming their defeat on conservative demagoguery and racism.

Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments. “Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol. Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by. Agents can’t use guns against

The IRS still has not responded to allegations from a former Center for American Progress (CAP) employee that the left-wing think tank coordinates on editorial content with the White House — revelations that could threaten the organization’s nonprofit status. Former ThinkProgress reporter Zaid Jilani wrote a piece this week detailing his experiences working for the liberal blog, which is run by CAP’s 501(c)(4) nonprofit Action Fund, the advocacy arm of White House counselor John Podesta’s think tank. “When I started working at ThinkProgress at the Center for American Progress Action Fund in 2009, I did so because it was an

WASHINGTON — In late December, President Barack Obama´s new legislative affairs team sent him more than a dozen recommendations for ways to improve his strained relations with Capitol Hill. The president responded with a few ideas of his own, including a request for more social events with lawmakers at the White House. It was a surprising suggestion from a president who has done little socializing with lawmakers of either party and has dismissed the notion that sharing a cocktail or a meal with members of Congress is a prescription for easing Washington gridlock. But within weeks, there Obama was, mingling

President Obama golfed on Saturday with former NBA player Alonzo Mourning and sportscaster Ahmad Rashad after discussing the military tensions in Ukraine with foreign leaders. The commander-in-chief skipped out of Washington this weekend to vacation with his family in Key Largo, Fla. The White House said Obama placed calls to leaders in countries such as Britain, France, Italy, Lithuania, Latvian and Estonia before he hit the links. Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. The president has teamed up with Mourning during several recent trips to Florida.

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has invited his debate prep advisers and senior campaign aides to his mountaintop chalet in Park City, Utah, for a weekend of skiing later this month, according to two people close to Romney. The reunion of Romney´s political brain trust comes amid a burst of positive buzz about the former Massachusetts governor -- from favorable reviews of "MITT," the Netflix documentary about his campaigns, to chatter among some powerful GOP donors about another Romney presidential campaign in 2016.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage.

The most dangerous parts of a flight are takeoff and landing. Rarely do incidents happen when a plane is cruising seven miles above the earth. So the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jet well into its flight Saturday morning over the South China Sea has led aviation experts to assume that whatever happened was quick and left the pilots no time to place a distress call. (Snip) The problem had to be big enough, he said, to stop the plane´s transponder from broadcasting its location, although the transponder can be purposely shut off from the cockpit.

Kuala Lumpur - A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew crashed in the South China Sea on Saturday, Vietnamese state media said, quoting a senior naval official. The Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had been missing for hours when Vietnam´s Tuoi Tre news quoted Admiral Ngo Van Phat as saying he had asked boats from an island off south Vietnam to rush to the crash site. If the report is confirmed, it would mark the U.S.-built airliner´s deadliest crash since entering service 19 years ago. Malaysia Airlines had yet to confirm that the aircraft had crashed.
