GOP joins Obama to replace parents with “community schools”

When Paul Ryan was anointed the successor to John “Tears of a Clown” Boehner, one of the first commitments he made was to end business as usual, a promise that he immediately broke when he joined forces with Mitch “Lying…

Character is destiny

Classical education has been growing inside the United States for several decades. Common Core’s entrance has only accelerated the trend. This is how you educate men, and women, fit for use as men and women. That it is also the original Western, English, and American model is a bonus. What we have now is a […]

Common Gore

Common Core has now rolled out a science curriculum for elementary and high school that will warm the cockles of Al Gore’s heart, without, of course, producing any green house gases. This is not the place to guess what other noxious substances Mr. Gore generates.

The War Against the Humanities

“There are two types of education… One should teach us how to make a living, and the other how to live.” – John Adams It appears that the new  Research Evaluation Framework (REF) in Britain has set off a lot of skirmishing. It’s interesting to read, and has implications for us here in the States […]

Rialto Assignment Asking Students to Question Holocaust to Be Revised

And so, we begin to see what education indoctrination will look like with Common Core in charge. In the first place, I don’t see any especially good sources given for the students here. About.com and History.com are not really all that great either, useful but, not the best either. The other thing is that as […]

Conservative Comedy 4/11/14

It’s time for some Conservative Comedy at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best Conservative political satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. Attorney General Eric Holder, speaking before the House of Representatives, proposed the implementation of “common sense” gun reforms like the Rube Goldberg nightmare in today’s cartoon. Seriously, when some screaming maniac chainsaws his way into your house on a dark and stormy night and is shredding the closet door behind which your terrified family is huddling, do you want your gun disabled because of a complicated, fallible electronic ID bracelet designed by the same techno-idiots who came up with Healthcare.gov? (“Error 404 – Try Shooting Later!”) Clearly, there’s a pretty wild disparity between Holder’s belief that such an ID system for gun owners is simply “common sense,” while a photo ID system for voters is, in his words, an “aggressive step to curtail the voting rights of African-Americans.” The same African-Americans, we presume, who will be unable to defend their lives, their family, and their property if Holder’s gun control proposal is implemented. Despite his concerns, the Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change […]

An Idea Whose Time Will Never Come

Garrison Keillor closes the news from Lake Wobegon with the sentence: “Well, that’s the news from Lake Wobegon, where all the women are strong, all the men are good looking, and all the children are above average.” Like a lot of you, that is the society I grew up in, and to a large extent […]

The Crucible of Change

A Crucible Moment: College Learning & Democracy’s Future is a report produced by the National Task Force on Civic Learning and Democratic. Engagement. The Task force was appointed and funded by the Department of Education, and the White House endorsed the subsequent report. It carries forward Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign vow to “transform” the nation, and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan’s 2013 pledge to do the same to education.

Three numbers that will make (or break) the GOP in 2014

The argument over where the GOP needs to go has been going on relentlessly for years, and all that we have to show for it is eight years under a Marxist-in-Chief (yes, I did finally say it), plus a stand-off on the Hill between the House and Senate. In case you’re really slow, that’s an abysmal failure, especially when one

Jeb Bush’s conflicting message

Jeb Bush’s education reform agenda, outlined in this article, starts with the declaration that “The best solution to our nation’s failing educational system is empowering parents.” I don’t disagree with that. It’s that I can’t figure out what empowering parents has to do with implementing Common Core School Standards. Gov. Bush is a big proponent […]

Conservative Comedy 12/20/13

This is the last edition of Conservative Comedy before a certain holiday. So before we begin, I would like to offer the following: Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral, celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. May you have a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2014, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped to make America great (not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country), and without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith, political belief, sexual preferences, or gender identity of the wishee. To celebrate this non-specific time of the year, in addition to our regular fare covering politics, I am including some bonus videos to get you in the seasonal mood. […]
