Can we have WINNERS anymore?

In Fairfax, Virginia,  they’re discussing how public school teachers can’t be hired by families to tutor their children while the schools are closed because that’s not fair to the children whose families can’t afford to hire teachers, which is also unfair to those students whose families can afford hiring teachers, of course.

And that, in a nutshell of an example, is where we are in America now.

Those who have made money can’t benefit from it.  After all, there are those who haven’t made as much money.

WHERE THE HECK DOES A COUNTRY GO AFTER THIS?

WHO WINS?  CAN there be winners and losers anymore or is the creep of Socialism “everybody loses” going to succeed?   Can everyone EVER win?  We’re teaching our kids in school that now, and have been for about 25 years “No, you don’t get a trophy for working so hard, that kid over there who didn’t will feel bad!”.

And it’s working.

    Today’s rant touches on this . . . suggesting that fear is the issue. Here’s the middle section of it:
    ~ ~ ~ ~

    The biggest question today, mid-august 2020, is whom President Harris names as HER veep when quid-pro-Joe is shuffled off to an elderhostel in the Adirondacks and pumped full of benzodiazepine or risperidone or aripiprazole every morning.

    My guess is she’ll go the life-insurance route and pick a nebbish moron such as Warren or Bloomberg or even Klobuchar, one nobody either likes or trusts enough to want her dead so that he/she can take over. She’d never go with a Jarrett or a Mooch ‘cause they’d have too much power. Spartacus, maybe?

    Soetoro spent 8 years widening the left-right chasm to the point that it’s no longer bridgeable from the far left. He did a particularly fine job ramping up the black/white tension PAST the peg and amplified enough ignorant suspicion to trigger movements to simply do away with law enforcement completely in minority, alien, or “sanctuary” neighborhoods.

    Ignorant mobs of guilt-driven whites in late-stage cabin fever and fatherless blacks who have no idea who was a slave, who owned any slaves, and who started it all anyway are now even defacing statues of the president who signed the freakin Emancipation Proclamation.

    The mau-mau mantra has become “White people looted us for centuries, so it’s now our right to loot back” as they destroy businesses, homes, neighborhoods, public property, police vehicles, and even the pharmacies and groceries where they get their necessities. The fact that many of those homes and businesses were owned by people of color is immaterial to them, because they can’t read and don’t care.

    So, add the destruction and violence to the fact that a candidate for the US presidency chose his running mate NOT, as the Amfrican messiah MLK said, by character or capabilities, but by the color of skin and gender. The very DEFINITION of kow-towing to racist and political-correctness pressure.

    And what do you get as the final tally? Just this: America has surrendered to fear. Plain and simple. Pick a sector of activity in America – sports, business, politics, religion, education, health care, entertainment . . . they’re all pandering to blacks. Not Asians, not Latinos, but Amfricans.

    People are afraid to say what they’re thinking – especially that they might vote for Trump – for fear of reprisal. And when the deciding criteria for choosing the person first in line for assuming control once Creepy Joe has his inevitable “incident” are melanin and the double X chromosome, it’s nothing but a 3rd grade class president election based on who promises the most ice cream and cookies.

    Virtue signaling has replaced critical thinking in politics, advertising, sports . . . you name it. Television stations kneel to domestic terrorism in their policy statements of “support for the fight against systemic racism and injustice” that are now seen before major presentations, such as ball games, golf tournaments, movies.

    Americans are living in fear . . . fear of speaking their own minds, fear of offending a gender-confused college kid, fear of having their car keyed for displaying the wrong bumper sticker, fear of leaving their homes without a goddam face mask which, by the way, experts have said are basically ineffective.

    Pussification. It started with an arrogant, inexperienced, inept, illegitimate PotUS who wore mom jeans and rode a girly bicycle and listened to an “All Things African First” preacher for 20 years and then Soundbyte Sharpton and rap “music” thug wannbes for the next 8.

    We can’t go where we want to, when we want to, with whom we want to, especially if we’re not wearing a mask . . . we can’t say what we want to . . . and now the pezzonovante want us all to live in vertical insect hives which we never leave, stop using all fossil fuels, get vaccinations which aren’t proven to work, and be RFID chipped so that we can be tracked to within centimeters at any time.
    ~ ~ ~ ~
    Here are the last two paragraphs:

    We’re there . . . on that ledge . . . staring down into the ragged, jagged political seppuku chasm of intimidation and accusation . . . a nation offering its testicles on the chopping block to dropout Jomo Kenyattas and Idi Amins who don’t know who their fathers were but know that everything bad that has happened since The Great Flood was caused by white people.

    Fear. Who knew it was a synonym for political correctness . . . or social reform . . . or fairness . . . or equality . . . or any of the concepts our modern Goebbelses and Riefenstahls are inundating us with relentlessly in the mass media today.

  2. As far as I can see from my online neighborhood network — 99% likely the well-to-do because this area is filled with Super Zips — have “learning pods” popping up all over the place.

    Yes, Fairfax County is urging currently contracted teachers not to teach any of these pods, but I’m sure that many teachers are ignoring this new tyranny on the part of FCPS. After all, for decades on end, teachers have done private tutoring outside school hours.

    Who would want a public union teacher. I’m sure there are some who are Ok, but still. I’d be more inclined to look for a retired or semi-retired teacher. Better chance of them not being communist pinko’s.

    Plus, imagine the contract you’d have to have them sign to be able to teach in your home or elsewhere for that matter.
    – No sex ed beyond how an egg gets fertilized. No nudie pics, no videos, no BDSM. No drag queens, no homos, no “gender studies”. No whips, no chains, no cross dressing. No abortion legitimizing. Nothing outside of an egg being pierced by an individual spermatozoon.

    Any deviation from this results in termination and three weeks in stocks in town center with no regard to the weather.

    – Nothing will be taught beside reading, writing, arithmetic, and some science which will not include anything regarding predictions of weather beyond tomorrow.

    – The calling out of losers as losers, dipsticks, morons, and democrats will be encouraged.

    – Glorification of any economic system other than capitalism is punishable by death and the sentence will be carried out immediately as painfully as possible in the public square.

    Well, in the interest of time….

    KID!!!!!!!!!! You wrote “Who would want a public union teacher. I’m sure there are some who are Ok, but still.”
    That made me laugh out loud because THAT IS SO TRUE!!!!!!!
    I’ve been saying that having no school right now in many places just delays the indoctrination project!

    BOCOPRO: That’s the MIDDLE of a rant?!!
    “People are afraid to say what they’re thinking – especially that they might vote for Trump – for fear of reprisal”
    this is TOTALLY true. I have felt that BIG TIME. I don’t give a damn anymore….because my support of Trump now can be supported with SO MANY GOOD THINGS…..you can shoot holes in absolutely EVERY SINGLE THING that idiot Harris said yesterday……..TRUMP IS TO BLAME FOR THIS ECONOMY? HE INHERITED OBAMA’S? I mean, WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?? 🙂
    I’m not sure FEAR has much to do with my point about WINNERS, but there is some FEAR in everything these days, isn’t there.
    BUT, when people yell RACIST! for everything we say or do….Support Trump? HE’S A RACIST SO YOU ARE, TOO!!! WANT SCHOOL VOUCHERS? RACIST!! WANT TO SUPPORT THE MILITARY? RACIST! NO MATTER HOW UNCONNECTED A SUBJECT MAY BE, SOMEHOW, IT’S RACIST!!!! (I always think of Tucker Carlson and how he says RACIST like he said RUSSIA during that hoax, remember?)
    Yup….did you hear that lefty screaming for everyone to LOOT because “it’s reparations…go loooooot!” OY>

    AOW, SO glad you could come by today because I wanted your input since you’re right THERE…VERY good to know you’re RIGHT TO WORK…
    Ed had a good point; Unions hold a lot of power and could have a limit to what its teachers can do.
    But KID has a good point too……….who wants the liberal teachers of today talking to our kids? 🙂
    Maybe the time they have these days is so short they can actually concentrate on REAL LEARNING?! 🙂

    Why would teachers ever go back to work when they can get paid for not working? Thus any other method of learning must be shut down. Seems simple to me. Next thing thousands will go out on disability no doubt PTSD over the matter..
