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.

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.

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.

WASHINGTON — Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker called out fellow Republicans Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah Thursday, accusing them of delaying a vote on the bill to fund the government and prevent a government shutdown to suit their own desires for publicity. Cruz, earlier this week, held the floor for over 21 hours, speaking in defense of defunding Obamacare with that government funding bill. He asked other Republican senators to join him in voting against moving forward on a bill passed by the House , which would fund the government while defunding Obamacare.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.
