Schools wrangle with tolerance for kids faking gunplay

Schools wrangle with tolerance for kids faking gunplay

At a time of heightened sensitivity to school safety, parents and school officials disagree over how to respond to toy guns and children who pretend to fire them.

Note: This article is the current result of the infestation of the radical feminist and the adoption of modern psychobabble in our public schools responding to the paranoia of the sheep during times of heightened media fear mongering by convincing them that they should be afraid of their own shadows.  

They are apparently trying to remove all natural male aggression from the boys, which would essentially make them girls.  Apparently they've come to the conclusion that that which makes boys boys is apparently a threat to the modern feminist belief that you should take it like a bitch no matter how much irrational and emotional bullshit she spews out at you.  So if we can just tame our kids at a very young age, perhaps we can avoid all future conflict, abuse or bullying.  


Lawmakers should take closer look at state foster care contracts: Editorial


Lawmakers should take closer look at state foster care contracts: Editorial


Five-digit bonuses. Gym memberships. Country club parties. Terrific perks in the private sector. But for a state contractor, who’s paid millions of tax dollars to find foster homes for kids, they’re embarrassing extravagances.

Note: Uh huh.  It's not about the money.  It's about the kids.  Right?

Few children in foster care ever return home

Few children in foster care ever return home Very few children who are taken into foster care by child welfare services ever return to their own homes. A new study by the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) found that just over 10% are returned to live with their parents, and of those almost a third end up in foster care again. Note: Perhaps the social wreckers should focus more on helping the parents rather than destroying families. Helping parents is cheaper and better for the kid in the long run. Foster care is destructive to the kid. The kid comes out of it all fucked up. There are multiple reasons for this, including being drugged out, bounced around, abused in care,

Maine's Shameful State Secret: Child Sex Abuse


Maine's Shameful State Secret: Child Sex Abuse


Maine has just been rated third worst in the country for sex trafficking. The Bangor Daily News says Maine is a top source for the entire East Coast to procure children for sex abuse. Those who know Maine's history are not surprised.

Note: The author of this article is not very well uneducated on the subject matter of the article.  She does throw out a lot of names though, many of whom I am familiar with thanks to several news reports over the last couple years.  And a commenter is accusing her of violating a gag order.  I thought that was interesting.

One can imagine that for their next stunt, Republicans will oppose a bill to help the elderly across the street, or vote against a resolution honoring motherhood and apple pie.

This is interesting because when child welfare related stories take off like this, it's usually because of some horrible abuse in foster care case such as a kid dying or Jerry Sandusky or something like that.

SystemSuckology: The Self-Righteous Lynch Mob of Perfect Parents In Action


Holy Shit people, we have officially hit the mother-load of judgmental, self righteous hypocrites spouting their vile hatred of the imperfect parent who had a momentary laps of reason and reacted in ways that the perfect parent never would have.  This imperfect parent needs a little help in coping with her stress levels.  Perhaps a little respite care so that she can occasionally get that desperately needed break, perhaps a parenting class.  But along come the perfect parents, or rather the judge, jury and executioner of the feminazi mindset and you might as well rename her Casey Anthony the 2nd and condemn her to burn in hell for all of eternity.

Perhaps we should put her right up there on the upside down cross with the worst of them.    Lock her up and throw away the key!  Hang her!  Burn her at the stake!

Oh... I'm sorry.  Perhaps I should tell you what I'm talking about....

So there is a video that came to my attention on Facebook regarding a mother who lost it on her kid.  I will give you the link in a minute, but first I want to warn you that what you are about to see in this video is not nearly as disturbing as some of the comments that are being left on the following witch hunt of a Facebook post.

I will post a few of my favorite screen shots in order to demonstrate the point.   But first, I must warn you, what you are about to see and hear is disturbing.  As you are about to undertake a journey through the deepest darkest pit of the twilight zone, or rather you are about to explore the lowest form of political correctness and self-righteous hypocrisy of the anti-abuse people.  These are the people who can do no wrong.  These are the people, who by virtue of their perfectness has the right to judge you in the court of public opinion and sentence you to a slow and agonizing death after a long bout of rotting in a jail cell.




Yes folks, the vile hatred is spewing.  The total justification for the governments spending of billions of tax payer dollars on a failed and fraud of a child protection industry that jumps at the drop of a pin, or rather the child loving bandwagon jumpers have found another poor unsuspecting mother to gang up on in support of their cause.


Ah yes.  You gotta love the perfect people, do you not?


This last two comments is also a perfect demonstration of the level of ignorance that anybody who wishes to reform the child welfare system faces when trying to convince the public to support their cause.


Now I do not at all condone what this mother did.  I do, however suggest that we at least attempt to bring about some sort of a cultural change as to the public opinion of frustrated parents who could possibly be in desperate need of a little help in coping with the stresses of life.  After all, if you honestly think that those kids would have a better chance in foster care then you are sadly mistaken.

If you would never do something like this, then you are obviously a much stronger person than she is.  That does not make her a monster.  It makes her a stressed out, fed up parent who could perhaps benefit from a little bit of Respite Care so that she can occasionally get the much needed break.  Perhaps she could benefit from some counseling so that she could learn some strategies to help her cope with the difficult times so that she doesn't have to abuse the kid. 

Instead...  The Self-Righteous Lynch Mob of Perfect Parents would rather make her suffer.


So where you ask is the video that is causing such hatred and discontent, calls for public floggings and hangings?

Here it is. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=1868227992365  But I warn you.  The good people who cry out against child abuse are a cruel and evil lot of violent lynch mobbing goody two shoes who would sooner rip your family apart than as much as offer you a helping hand.

Guess what

It Could Happen To You
