Political Correctness puts Connecticut Children at Risk

July 22, 2016

Public policies matter.  There is a real cost when public officials get it wrong.  Sometimes the price is paid with our children’s blood.  Politicians say that young lives matter.  Talk is cheap, particularly a politician’s promise.  In fact, the pensions of unionized government employees matter.  Political correctness leaves our children at risk.  Sadly, politics kills.

This is how we paid the price for bad policies.  Four years ago, a mass murderer at Sandy Hook Elementary School killed 26 people.  Some of the first victims were the school principal and guidance counselor who were shot and killed as they charged the murderer with their bare hands.  Connecticut state legislators and the local school boards made sure these defenders were unarmed.  Today, Connecticut politicians say that young lives matter, but actions speak louder than words.  In fact, the pensions of unionized government employees take priority in local budgets.  The Bridgeport, Connecticut School Board stopped paying for armed school safety officers.  That is only half the story.school union members testify.

Politicians protect their children with armed guards and trained EMTs, but not our children.  It simply costs too much money to protect our children from harm while the politicians have other promises to keep.  Our children are politically expendable.  They needn’t be.

We need to put risks into context to make good decisions.  It is unlikely that our local school will be attacked.  Rather than fill the school with armed police, some states chose to let teachers fill the shoes of first responders.  That is a good choice because trained school staff have an invaluable advantage in an emergency.  Time is everything in an emergency.  Seconds count in the race to save lives, and other first responders are many minutes away from campus.  School staff can respond in seconds.  School staff are really the preferred responders once you sweep political correctness aside.  Not in Connecticut.

Other states made different political decisions.  They sent school staff who already have their concealed carry permits to take additional training.  The teachers received additional firearms instruction and training in emergency trauma care.  These first responders learned to end the physical threat so they could treat the injured and save lives.  Today, these teachers go about their everyday jobs as they carry firearms and medical supplies on school grounds.  Not in Connecticut.

Connecticut school boards are empowered to make that choice as well, but they didn’t.  The school board in Sandy Hook, Connecticut could have made that choice before the mass murder four years ago.  Connecticut school boards could have made that decision yesterday.  Instead, the Bridgeport School board left our children unprotected.  Money talks, so let’s hear what budgets have to say.

Connecticut is a high tax state.  In theory, those tax funded government benefits are so valuable that people rush to live in Connecticut.  That is the theory.  That isn’t true in practice.  In practice, politicians use tax money to pay off their political contributors.  In practice, we make better choices with our money than politicians make with our tax money.  Highly taxed and highly regulated Connecticut is losing companies, losing jobs and losing people.  In 2012, Connecticut literally lost some young people as they were killed in an undefended public school.  Law enforcement and school boards put armed police in schools immediately after the Sandy Hook attack.  Now, with the Obama economy layering job losses on top of Connecticut regulations, there isn’t enough money budgeted to pay for armed school safety officers.  The Bridgeport School Board said the police department could fund armed school safety officers, but they wouldn’t.  School safety isn’t a political priority.

There are alternatives, but not for Connecticut politicians.  Political correctness stops armed adults from protecting Connecticut children.  It is a matter of time until politics kills again.  It doesn’t have to be that way, but, sadly, doing the same thing time after time will deliver the same result.

Connecticut citizens can change their politicians and their school boards.  If that doesn’t work, Connecticut citizens can move their children to the private schools that take safety seriously.   Connecticut families can join thousands of others and leave Connecticut for a better place to live.

I know that isn’t convenient.  It is only a matter of life and death.  Our children will pay with their lives.

Black Lives Don’t Matter.. to Socialists

July 22, 2016

Black lives don’t matter to Socialists.  Black votes don’t matter either.  That can change.

Black lives don’t matter to Socialist Politicians.  If you don’t believe me, then count the dead in Oakland, in Compton, and in Chicago.  Count the black people killed in East St. Louis, Detroit, Memphis, Camden, Baltimore, Birmingham, Atlanta and DC.  A Socialist politician can’t afford to care for black lives while the politician is busy raising taxes to pay off his political supporters.  A Socialist politician can’t care for black lives while he destroys jobs, breaks up black families, delivers low quality education, and use law enforcement as a means to raise revenue for the city.  Sure Socialist politicians say they care, but talk is cheap, and I’m describing what Socialist Politicians really do.

con game on the poor

Black votes don’t matter in the eyes of socialist politicians.   The reason is simple.  Black people will predominantly vote for socialists no matter how the socialist politicians treat blacks.  Only swing votes matter to politicians, and politicians of both parties can take the black vote for granted.

The black vote counts less and less each election.  The black vote literally shrinks as more black babies are aborted.  I wish it wasn’t so.  It doesn’t have to be that way.

Black lives don’t matter to Socialist voters.  Socialist voters say they care, but our violent cities are run by Socialists politicians and have been for a long time. White socialists believe the politicians because it eases their guilty consciences.  These voters put their fantasy ideology before actually helping real people.  They love their virtue-signaling: voting for things that make them feel good about themselves but don’t help real people in the real world.  We’ve seen Socialism fail in city after city, in state after state, and in nation after nation.  It is sad that so many blacks and whites want more government and less freedom.  I wish it wasn’t so.  It doesn’t have to be that way.

Black lives don’t matter to the mainstream media.  Shocking headlines matter to the media.  Selective outrage matters.  Political posturing counts for the media.  Feeding the socialist narrative is essential, and contrary facts are ignored.  The Main Stream Media breathlessly reports for days about a black man shot by a policeman.  But that same Media ignores a hundred black people shot by black thugs or gangs in our Socialist controlled cities every weekend.  I wish it wasn’t so. It doesn’t have to be that way.

I want all this to change because I believe black lives do matter.  Americans voted for Barack Obama because they wanted to see people lifted out of poverty, and they thought he might do something about it.  Americans voted for Barack Obama because they wanted to see equal opportunity.  Americans voted for Barack Obama because they wanted racial justice.  Has he delivered any of those things?

To lift people out of poverty, we have to understand where wealth comes from.  It doesn’t come from community organizing.  Equal opportunity means expanding opportunities so a small family can start a business and create wealth.  Equal opportunity doesn’t mean transgender bathrooms and free condoms.   Justice doesn’t come from protecting black criminals while destroying the black family.

Change is both simple and hard. If black lives really matter to you, be willing to leave the political tribes that perpetuate the political status quo.  Staying on the Socialist plantation doesn’t cut it any more.  It starts with you.

The black community needs new friends and new political alliances.  I’m not saying blacks should all become Republicans, because the Republican Elites have problems of their own.  I’m saying, talk to me, talk to us, your neighbors. I’ll meet you half way.  I bet other white people will too.

The politicians of both parties will simply take you for granted.

Britain abolishes the Department of Energy and Climate Change | Watts Up With That?

July 15, 2016

Obama wants us to be like Europe.  Britain just closed their Department of Energy and Climate Change.  I’m good with that.  RM

The British Global Warming Policy Forum welcomes the abolishment of the Department of Energy and Climate Change.  The new government under Theresa May focuses on economic growth, international competitiveness and leaving the European Union, the decision will provide vital savings.  It is hoped that the abolition of DECC will also encourage a new emphasis on cost-effective policy-making.  “Moving energy policy to the new Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy should give ministers a fresh impetus to ensure that the costs for consumers and businesses are driven down, not pushed further up,” said GWPF director Dr Benny Peiser.
