America’s Schools: Breeding Grounds for Compliant Citizens
“[P]ublic school reform is now justified in the dehumanizing language of national security, which increasingly legitimates the transformation of schools into adjuncts of the surveillance and police state… students are increasingly subjected to disciplinary apparatuses which limit their capacity for critical thinking, mold them into consumers, test them into submission, strip them of any sense of social responsibility and convince large numbers of poor minority students that they are better off under the jurisdiction of the criminal justice system than by being valued members of the public schools.”—Professor Henry GirouxFor those hoping to better understand how and why we arrived at this dismal point in our nation’s history, where individual freedoms, privacy and human dignity have been sacrificed to the gods of security, expediency and corpocracy, look no farther than America’s public schools.
Once looked to as the starting place for imparting principles of freedom and democracy to future generations, America’s classrooms are becoming little more than breeding grounds for compliant citizens. The moment young people walk into school, they increasingly find themselves under constant surveillance: they are photographed, fingerprinted, scanned, x-rayed, sniffed and snooped on. Between metal detectors at the entrances, drug-sniffing dogs in the hallways and surveillance cameras in the classrooms and elsewhere, many of America’s schools look more like prisons than learning facilities.
Add to this the epidemic of arresting schoolchildren and treating them as if they are dangerous criminals, and you have the makings of a perfect citizenry for our emerging police state—one that can be easily cowed, controlled, and directed. Now comes the latest development in the sad deconstruction of our schools: “smart” identification cards containing Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags that allow school officials to track every step students take. So small that they are barely detectable to the human eye, RFID tags produce a radio signal by which the wearer’s precise movements can be constantly monitored..........
I hope you can discern just how utterly deceitful the TINY DOT is and the lengths the TINY DOT has gone to to advance their agenda and the brainwashing of the throng into compliance. And to add insult to injury the TINY DOT uses YOUR very own hard earned tax fiat to do it. Yes, the TINY DOT uses the fruits of YOUR labor to control you, think about that.....You FUND the TINY DOT so it can turn around and control you, dictate to you, suppress you and lie to you..Think about that too...
The TINY DOT is corrupt to the core and there is simply no way to fix the TINY DOT as far as I am concerned because all you get is meet the new TINY DOT same as the old TINY DOT.
The only option left is to just simply walk away, ignore the TINY DOT because truth be told we do NOT need the TINY DOT, not in the least. The fact is, the TINY DOT needs us to continue their funding so they can control us, suppression us, dictate to us and confine us.
We do NOT need the TINY DOT.....the TINY DOT needs us......
WE do NOT need the TINY DOT.....the TINY DOT needs us.....
When you realize this, the TINY DOT becomes IRRELEVANT and you become free.
This is the TINY DOT's greatest fear, if the throng in mass wakes up to the simple fact and realizes they do NOT need the TINY DOT then the TINY DOT will lose all power, all control and all suppression of the throng.
"When the student is ready,
the teacher will appear."
One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president and nine Supreme Court justices - 545 human beings out of the 300 million - are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
Just walk away from the DOTS and ignore the parasitic control freaks.
Louisiana Bans Cash Transactions for Second-Hand Merchandise
A new law passed in Louisiana has made it illegal for consumers to pay for second-hand goods with cash, in a ruling that has a substantial effect on the many flea markets in the state.
House Bill 195 states that “Anyone, other than a non-profit entity, who buys, sells, trades in or otherwise acquires or disposes of junk or used or secondhand property more frequently than once per month from any other person, other than a non-profit entity, shall be deemed as being in the business of a secondhand dealer. A secondhand dealer shall not enter into any cash transactions in payment for the purchase of junk or used or secondhand property. Payment shall be made in the form of check, electronic transfers, or money order issued to the seller of the junk or used or secondhand property.”....
