Bloviating Zeppelin: Our New School Atmosphere

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Our New School Atmosphere

Unfortunately, rather self-explanatory.

I looooove this and thought it was so good. You beat me to it. A friend sent me this and I was going to post it as soon as I get around to figuring out how to put pictures on my blog. Great minds think alike, right :-)?

I remember when it was a big deal that shiite students were bringing knives to school because it was part of their religion and a religious symbol. Sorry, a knife is a knife. On the other hand I don't remember ever being threatened to be stabbed by a "Merry Christmas" greeting. So know we are getting rid of the religion so as not to offend the minority, instead of getting rid of a dangerous weapon to save the majority.

Eric: how right you are!! How odd is it that what one would consider normal is now the reverse -- right is wrong and wrong is right.

I look back upon my childhood and think: I was lucky enough to grow up when kids could still be kids and everything wouldn't kill you.

Yes, i remember when I was a kid we had Christmas plays.

On another note, regarding how schools have changed in the last 30 years: I got swats for throwing milk at a girl at lunch time. (It was just a few drops). The paddle had holes in it. I never did that again. AND I respected the rules.I had great parenting, but if the school was into self-esteem like they are now, I would have been a hell raiser. ( I am so thankful my mom didn't buy into Dr. Spock back then).

As Rush mentioned on his show yesterday about the 6 year old boys who put excrament all over the wall in the bathroom..
Think about what would have happened to you in school in your days if you would have done that??

Blo Zep: I am able to do blogging in my down time at work. But it has become a little difficult, but I also type very quickly so it helps! I am so happy to see your posts; your blog has evolved and you have made it your unique home, just as Ms. Chatterbox has. Cool! Have a great weekend:)

Mahndisa: your posts are fabulous and frequent -- I also type quickly having learned it in the 7th grade from Mrs. Lefkow -- but man, I must write like a banana slug -- it just takes me so darned long to compose and arrange my thoughts. I gotta tell ya, my hat is off to your skill and, quite frankly, you've got some kinda skill!!

Rebecca: as I posted on another blog, the days of actually being able to be, one, a KID and, two, held responsible for one's actions are indeed gone. And sadly so.

The best thing that can happen is when my generation, the Baby Boomers, dies off completely. We are responsible for the corruption of our culture and our entire nation, and imperiled our world stance.

We took our parents, the Greatest Generation, and totally turned their goodness and honest philosophies upside down because we could. We raised a nation of spoiled, self-centered children and told them that "self esteem" is more important than any other issue.

The Baby Boomers can't die off fast enough, as far as I'm concerned -- we've done enough damage to this nation.

Wow, that was awesome insight. Thanks for sharing that. You are right. I think that generation screwed up, and we are seeing the results.
I do think, however there is a minority of us who STILL believe in spanking, teaching our children responsibility, and have 'vowed' NOT to raise our children the way we were raised. BUT, I think the majority is into 'self esteem'. I hate that phrase, to be honest.

Even writing the phrase "self esteem" sends me 210/190. . .
