We´re losing the war on
poverty because our schools

Washington Examiner, by Melanie Sturm

Original Article

Posted By:Aspenhuskerette, 1/19/2014 10:57:39 AM

As a binge-TV watcher, I’ve relished devouring serial dramas in advertising-free gulps. But “Breaking Bad” — the story about a cancer-stricken chemistry teacher turned clandestine meth-cooking badass – didn’t appeal. Then Anthony Hopkins declared it an “epic work” with “the best actors I’ve ever seen.” Midway through season two, I understand why Walter White is heroic. As men increasingly check out of work, marriage, and fatherhood, it’s hard not to root for a man fiercely determined to secure his family’s future before dying – despite his morally abhorrent methods. That there are dramatically fewer men willing and able to safeguard

Thanks for the honest statistics. No one should have to go through the progressive school system. The government should get out of the way, downsize itself, and families take care of themselves again.

We´re losing our country because of the war on men. Right now, women are controlling our government and it is spiraling into hell.

Our boys are not being appropriately educated at any level. They face affirmative action, the incessant need to hire and promote women and gays and any other minority group in the world.

We have gotten to a point where the only people being discriminated against are white males and it is destroying this country.

And yet, women vote for the Democrats far more than men do. Why would they trust Obama&Co more than their husbands, fathers, sons? How can they watch men´s chances at succeeding diminish and not care? It is ridiculous.

Gotta disagree with a previous poster. This government is not being run by women. It is being predominantly run by men who are greedy, unscrupulous, and, well, not nice. These men excuse their actions by claiming women want these things, but in reality, it benefits them (think abortion, free birth control, programs geared to aid unwed mothers, women in combat, an economy that forces women to work outside the home). And I hate to admit it, but we have some dumb women in America. I´m not one of them and I´m guessing my fellow female Ldotters aren´t either.
Oh, and it isn´t just white males being discriminated against. Look what they are doing to Maria Conchita Alonso. Trust me, we conservative gals get our share of abuse too.

#5, I don´t hate all women. I am a woman who worked in an office run by women. They were downright mean, nasty, petty backstabbers. They destroyed an office that was respected statewide as on of the best because of their ineptness.

My office was a microcosm of what is happening in this country today. Any business that functions well does so with a balance of male and female personalities that offset each other´s strengths and weaknesses.

Sorry for the double post.

I am going to call "bull puckey" on this whole premise.

Yes, if school is the only place students are being molded, then o.k. But that should never be the case.

Parents can have much more influence over their children than schools! Either the feminist moms are making their boys eunuchs, with their dads MIA or too cowed to do their job, or no one is paying attention and leaving their job to a bunch of liberal educators.

Do your jobs, parents. You have more power than you can ever imagine.

#9 and other posters, it is time we start thinking of the connection between the female dominated field of education and the poor results, especially for boys and young men. There does have to be a balance of male and female personalities, in many fields, for sanity and reason to prevail and that is lacking in our current education system.

There is much truth in this article.

The mention of behavior-modifying drugs strikes a chord. I was picking up one of my children from the school nurse´s office years ago, and there was a line of little boys (this was middle school, grades 5-8) was standing in front of the nurse´s desk. She handed each one his pill and a cup of water, they downed them, and left. I couldn´t imagine what was going on, until I heard one of the little boys say "I´m here for my Ritalin."

My blood runs cold at this memory. There must have been 20 little boys.

I taught pregnant teens for more than a decade. There are two experiences in American life that almost always turn a child into an adult. One is becoming a mother and assuming the responsibility for an infant. The other is basic training and becoming a member of the military. Our society enabled young women becoming mothers and dropped the draft. I am not a fan of young motherhood or of the draft but the presence of one and the absence of the other has dramatically changed our country. When young men have an equal responsibility for the children they father things will improve.

I agree with #9 wholeheartedly.

My last job was at a large engineering company. The department where I worked - and contributed - was run entirely by poorly trained, backstabbing women who abused the staff, both men and women. It was insufferable. (The browbeaten eunuchs in the department who toed "the party line" were left alone, of course.) The flagrant deceit, brazen theft of credit for other people´s ideas, endless nit-picking, and downright meanness shocked everyone.

I decided to retire and move to Ecuador. Life is just too short. The result? One less well-trained, productive, tax-paying male in the California workplace, and one less participant in the US labor force. (Like so many men who "opt out," I was in my prime working years.) What´s left? One blissfully liberated man. And three mendacious, overpaid, pettifogging, incompetent jobsworths who abuse everyone around them. I pity those who are left behind, I really do. At least I was able to escape.

Does anyone really believe that today´s Kabuki theater of feminized corporate hyper-sensitivity training, and brazen disregard of the demands of engineering and other "hard" sciences, and equal-opportunity managerial mediocrity, and ginned-up attacks on competent, plain-spoken, self-assured men by shrill harpies can continue indefinitely without drastic consequences for this nation and its economy?

Women need men to hold them in check and - likewise - men need women to hold them in check; otherwise, everything gets out of whack. Everything is out of whack.

America is in serious trouble, and militant, ruthlessly enforced, politically correct gender "equality" is making everything worse. Too many women have lost respect for what men bring to the table, and too many men have simply been browbeaten into submission. Atlas is shrugging. Everyone loses.

I am still sticking to the three things that changed America:

They took prayer out of school
They stopped the draft
Women went to work

Adding a forth- it is too lucrative today for unwed mothers to get married. Absent fathers for all of these feral children.

Since Teddy Roosevelt counseled, “Speak softly and carry a big stick,” U.S. presidents have mostly followed his advice, cautioning adversaries to resolve conflicts peacefully or suffer consequences. Even President Carter brandished America´s big stick upon learning that bad things happen when you´re not respected, prompting him to reconsider deterrence, given “the Soviets´ ultimate goals.” But today, after unilaterally “resetting” relations with repressive regimes, including Iran andRussia -- whose Ukraine incursion is “the gravest threat to European security and stability since the end of the Cold War,” proclaimed NATO´s chief -- America´s posture is more akin to “speak loudly and carry a toothpick.”

Last month, as Ukrainian émigré-turned-tech tycoon Jan Koum prepared to cash a multibillion-dollar check from Facebook -- acquirer of his startup WhatsApp -- then-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was checking out of the Gatsby-esque estate where he´d cached his stolen plunder. That the two Ukrainians derived their riches under diametrically opposed systems -- free enterprise versus banana republic -- illustrates why all income inequalities are not created equal.

A bipartisan group of law professors, including both supporters and opponents of same-sex marriage, has sent Arizona governor Jan Brewer a letter explaining the religious freedom bill now sitting on her desk has been "egregiously misreprented" by its critics.

The bill has been egregiously misrepresented by many of its critics. We write because we believe that you should make your decision on the basis of accurate information.

“Life’s greatest happiness,” Victor Hugo wrote, “is to be convinced we are loved.” But as most experienced couples know, love-induced happiness is a year-round triumph, not the outcome of a singular, mass-marketed Valentine´s celebration - the one Jay Leno calls “Extortion Day.” But men ignore this expectation-filled Hallmark holiday at their peril, which is why it’s become a $16 billion industry. More than heart-shaped bling, women savor attention — a lesson also noted by politicians. Just as women should be wary of transient Romeos, they must think again about politicians who whisper sweet nothings into their ears, over-promising before an election

The weirdest thing about John Kerry´s weekend speech on climate-change—other than the fact that this is the same guy who in 1997 voted to forbid the U.S. from signing the Kyoto Protocol—is that it begins by quoting something Maurice Strong said at the U.N.´s 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro: "Every bit of evidence I´ve seen persuades me that we are on a course leading to tragedy." Maurice who? Mr. Strong, a former oil executive from Canada (he was Pierre Trudeau´s pick to run state-owned Petro-Canada in the mid-1970s), was for many years the U.N.´s ultimate mandarin.

Last week a biochemist announced that marijuana “is no worse than alcohol.” OK, he’s not exactly a biochemist, but he does have some expertise on the subject. As a teenager in an exclusive private school in Hawaii, he was a member of a “club” called the Choom Gang. They had a narrow charter: It was to get high smoking marijuana every day. “Barry,” as he was then called, excelled.

Manning is football’s undisputed heavyweight champion, whose aww-shucks humility belies — and explains — his unrivaled ownership of five NFL MVP awards.

The economy has been stuck in a ditch for more than six years, and our national debt has exploded to unmanageable proportions. We have no coherent policy for dealing with conflicts in the Middle East, Africa or the Korean Peninsula. And scandals have erupted in the Internal Revenue Service, the State Department and the Justice Department.

President Obama a few months ago signed a bill to increase taxes by $600 billion. The title of the bill is the American Taxpayer Relief Act. As for the fourth word of that title, if you’re Obama, apparently you spell “relief” as follows: T-A-X-I-N-C-R-E-A-S-E. The president thereby achieved his goal of transferring more money away from the people who earned it with their labor over a lifetime and into the hands of people who earned it with their votes in November.

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ.

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces.

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism.
