Let’s face it—America’s public education system is the laughing-stock of the civilized world. In the spirit of throwing gasoline on a fire to put it out, education experts have decided that more intervention by the federal government is the key to turning our overpriced failure factories into a “world-class” display of academic excellence.
And so was born Common Core—a vast new program to get a standardized curriculum, devised by idiots in Washington, into every public school classroom in America. It will also make the system cost more: music to the ears of every bureaucratic parasite that lives on it.
Although tens of millions of American children are to be the guinea pigs in the Common Core experiment, not many citizens—especially not the parents of these children—seem to know exactly what it’s all about. No one’s answering their questions. Shut up and pay.
Consider this North Carolina parent’s experience:
“When I began seeing the ill effects of Common Core in my second grader’s classroom, I reached out to other parents and asked if it was just me. Other parents echoed how they did not like the Common Core Math and what it was doing to their children. We asked for a meeting with the teacher and the principal. The principal denied us access to meet with her as a group, and outright told me to stop communicating with other parents about the Common Core because I was creating ‘unrest.’”
Get it? You lowly parents can’t have a meeting with the high and mighty principal, and furthermore—shut up! You’ll be sorry if I find you’ve been talking about this on the phone.
Are we still in America?
As satisfying as it would be to punch this jidrool right in the kisser, there’s a much better way.
Take your kids out of those public schools. Do it now.
To borrow a line from Shakespeare, “You blocks! You stones! You worse than senseless things!” Are you so blind, that you can’t, or won’t, see what public education is doing to your children?
What is the goal of public education? To transform America into a top-down socialist basket case, with self-anointed experts micro-managing not citizens, but a docile, dumbed-down herd of easily-manipulated cattle. They are the Morlocks; you are the Eloi. Your role is to obey them: to give them authority over every aspect of your lives. They’ll be content with nothing less.
While you sit home, watching soap operas and reality TV, they’re having your kids read cute stories about boys who want to be girls and girls who want to be boys. While you go to church to hear your pastor tell you that everybody goes to heaven, they’re teaching your kids that there is no God, life created itself, and government is the answer to every problem known to man.
And now you’re not supposed to talk about it.
Do you really want to live like the people in “The Hunger Games”? Because that’s where you’re going to wind up, if you let the educators and community organizers have their way.
In God’s name, show a little gumption.
Oh—but homeschooling is so hard! And Christian schooling’s so expensive!
Are you the descendants of the same people who came here on the Mayflower and rode covered wagons all the way out to California? Don’t you think those things were hard? And costly? If the spirits of our ancestors can feel shame, you can bet your last dollar they’re ashamed of us.
I don’t know. Maybe we want school principals to tell us to shut up. Maybe we want our kids to be taught that America stinks and it’s only “social justice” to give the government more power. If that’s what we want, we sure as shoot are getting it. But what do we care, as long as we have video games and food stamps?
“Turn to me,” says the Lord, “and I will turn to you.” But we’re not turning to Him, are we? Instead, we pack our government full of liars, thieves, control freaks, and swine, and allow it to become a devouring worm that blindly thrusts out in all directions and swallows up whatever’s in its path.

False gods always demand so much more from us than the real God does.
What kind of cowardly, self-despising nation surrenders to the worst rogues on the planet, and goes down without a struggle? The Obamas of this fallen world laugh at you, America—even as they accept your children as a human sacrifice.
We might save ourselves by a mass exodus from public education. It won’t be easy, but it’s right.
If we can’t save the souls and minds of America’s children, we can’t save America.
