|They resent this country and resent the people who demand their own way rather than allow the “experts” and the ruling class dominion. So they want to import an alien people to reduce the stubbornness and independence that have traditionally characterized Americans. And it makes so much of the liberal agenda understandable: abortion, contraception, feminism, gay marriage, euthanasia, managed health care with death panels. All are aimed at reducing the number of old-time Americans. Reducing our usable land through government takeover helps, as do reductions in America’s energy usage via “green” energy schemes. This agenda goes back to Paul Ehrlich and before him to Margaret Sanger and the eugenicists, and ultimately to
Thomas Malthus. But a large part of why they are doing it is to breed Americans for submissiveness. (Eugenics was the handmaiden of the Progressive era.)
if you go into a government building in my town called the “Family Center”… and walk up to the second floor in the library there is a sign that warns of the dangers of “Nationalism”. This semantic dates from WWII where National Socialism was spun by the left as being “Nationalist” and not “Socialist”. It is a mistake to not see the political relevance of this spin. Nationalism should be the character that helps a culture respect borders.
(Sultan Knish aka Daniel Greenfield via front page mag) If you want to see the feudalism toward which America’s public sector unions are headed, look no further than Mexico where teaching positions aren’t a job, they’re membership in a guild that can be passed on to your children so that teachers can give birth to teachers who will go on teaching for all eternity until no one can read or write anymore.
Tens of thousands of teachers are blocking highways and seizing government buildings across Mexico to protest a federal education reform ending their longtime practice of selling their jobs or giving them to their children.
They’re doing it for the children… literally. Their children.
“We’re fighting to guarantee jobs for our kids,” Oscar Miranda said as he helped teachers stage a protest in front of the governor’s office in Cuernavaca, the capital of Morelos. “Throughout history the sons of carpenters have become carpenters. Even politicians’ children become politicians. Why shouldn’t our children have the same right?”
Wake up America, this is what we are headed for.
Trying to turn America into Mexico, institutionally and demographically, will lead to actual feudalism, composed of guilds of fake professionals.
But you can also sell teaching jobs.
“Teaching jobs were routinely bought and sold for as much as $6,000. That’s as much as beginning teachers make in a year. The jobs are still coveted because they provide steady income, particularly in poor areas.”
Now that the leftist PRI is back in power in Mexico, they are following through on a pledge to end the whole “Passing on Public Sector Jobs to Your Children” business, which Felipe Calderon tried and failed to do.
Addressing teachers at a ceremony in Mexico City, President Enrique Pena Nieto laid out a proposal that would champion merit-based teacher promotions and chip away at the union’s power to hire teachers on its own terms. “Your rights will be safe because your income, tenure and promotion will not be subject to discretionary criteria. Good teachers will have the opportunity to advance based on their professional merits.”
So how broken does a system have to be before a leftist politician embraces merit promotions for teachers? This broken.
But now can you imagine living in a country where the left is actually opposed to teacher’s unions?
“No more promotions for loyalty, (or) cronyism with union leaders,” said Jesus Zambrano, who heads the leftist opposition Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD). “Let’s have promotion be based on teacher merit and professionalism.”
Right winger! He hates the middle class! He wants to destroy education! We need to protect our kids from education reform that will drain us of the best teachers who happen to be genetically born to other teachers!
So teachers’ unions may once again go on strike in Mexico and that’s serious business over there. Sure our teachers’ unions are nasty, but they do worse over there than punch people in the face.
Police raided three teachers colleges on Monday in the western state of Michoacan, where dozens of students had been hijacking buses and delivery trucks for a week to protest curriculum changes.
Masked protesters battled police with rocks and fireworks. Student involved in the campus takeovers burned a dozen trucks and buses before authorities swept in, detaining 176 strikers. Ten police officers were injured, three seriously, the Michoacan state government reported.
The standoff at the teachers colleges began over a week ago, when students seized the campuses to protest plans to require them to take English and computer science courses. The protesters say the colleges are meant to prepare teachers for rural areas where basic skills are more of a priority.
If you want this to come to America, just keep voting for Democrats and keep the borders open.
why don’t they consult the Lebanese Judo team at the Olympics?
A growing number of countries are flocking to Israel to study border security as the Defense Ministry works to complete the construction of a physical and technological barrier along the Egyptian border.
In August, a delegation from India will arrive to study the various technologies used by the IDF to secure the borders with the Gaza Strip, the West Bank and Egypt, and which could be implemented as part of India’s own fence with Pakistan and Bangladesh.
India is interested in beefing up its border security to prevent future incidents like the Mumbai attacks in 2008.
The Indian press reported Sunday on a tunnel that had been discovered under the border with Pakistan in the contested Kashmir region.
Another country closely following Israel’s decisions on border security is the US, which is building a barrier along its border with Mexico.
The Department of Homeland Security is, for example, testing the ELM-2112 family of persistent ground surveillance radars, developed by Elta Systems, a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries, and used by the IDF to detect intruders before they reach the border.
Five different versions detect individuals at ranges from 300 m. up to 20 km., and vehicles at up to 40 km.
The radars feature four stationary antennas, each covering a 90-degree sector enabling persistent surveillance and tracking over a wide area.
Of course, none of those countries will have to deal with a Supreme Court that knows nothing about security but dictates the fence’s route. Nor will they have to worry about the International Court in the Hague, or various bodies of the United Nations getting involved and condemning them.
human-rights groups report that soldiers loyal to Gaddafi were rounding up people and forcing them onto boats at gunpoint.August 23, 2011
…When NATO bombardments against Libya began, Gaddafi vowed to “unleash an unprecedented wave of illegal immigration” on Europe. And the ships have been arriving from Libya since.
