This is ridiculous, one can no longer have fun without worring about offending someone.

Oh, for crying out loud! When I was a cadet there, you should have seen the things we pulled and got away with.

But on the other hand, these cadets, who are almost certainly seniors, should have the common sense not to allow videos or pictures of their less than brilliant attempt at humor.

There is one consolation. Note that they are suspended. That could be anything from a week, to a semester. If they had really done something bad, they would have been dismissed, permanently.

My guess is that there may well be. Almost all grads are pretty much right wingers. There are a few exceptions though, such as my classmate Pat Conroy from "N" company.

Holy Cow, is this going to be a new trend in the war against Political Correctness?   Let's hope so, because Common Sense will always win when it is applied. 

Texas School Adds More Recess Time and Gets Incredible Results

[Image: Recess-458x303.jpg]

Quote:Eagle Mountain Elementary in Fort Worth, TX, recently took a risk. It went from giving one recess per day to its kindergarten and first grade classes, to fourrecesses per day. (That's two 15-minute breaks outside in the morning, and two in the afternoon.) This drastic change had surprisingly good results.
Many schools take away recess time as a form of punishment for kids, but this particular school took a chance and gave their students more opportunities to run around and play. The result? Children are more focused, less fidgety, and more creative when they are in the classroom.

Quote:At first teachers were worried about losing the classroom time and being able to cover all the material they needed with what was left, but now that the experiment has been going on for about five months, teachers say the kids are actually learning more because they’re better able to focus in class and pay attention without fidgeting.

Children need to move and play. It's unnatural for them (or anyone for that matter) to sit at a desk for hours on end. Recently there has been a lot of focus on the need for adults to get up and move at least once an hour throughout the day. Why should it be any different for kids?

Quote:But now [teacher Donna McBride] says that not only are the students paying better attention in class, they’re following directions better, attempting to learn more independently and solve problems on their own, and there have been fewer disciplinary issues.

“We’re seeing really good results,” she said, and those results make sense. The American Academy of Pediatrics says that recess is “a crucial and necessary component of a child’s development.” Even adults have a hard time concentrating and working their best when confined to a chair all day, so it’s amazing that we expect kids to be able to focus and learn without any way to exercise and blow off steam.

We need other schools around the country to make recess a priority and not an afterthought. Our children need it. Consider raising this issue with the school board in your own town. Clearly the results are worth it.

This could be significant, in that other schools are going to be seeing this, and adding two and two together.  But more important of all is the importance of decentralization and allowing many to try different ways of accomplishing actual results.

Here's how to successfully fight against the PC and Social Justice Warrior crowd.  You throw it back in their faces and not let them get away with their childish tantrums.  Full bore, just like Steven Crowder.

It has been reported that Pres. Obama has sent a letter to every public school in the nation, ordering them to allow people to enter the restroom of their choice according to the gender they identify with, regardless of the gender indicated on their birth certificate, or face loss of all federal funding. How can anyone not admit that Obama, like most "Progressive Democrats" who hold the same wild, extremist view, is an immoral degenerate, who should be branded for life as a sex offender?

The right of privacy for 99.9% of the population that are not transgender is being ignored.

This Political Correctness, i.e. "Cultural Marxism" is slowly degrading the very language itself.  I told my friend Michael today, that all this is done on purpose, because denigrating the language is the first "evolutionary" step of fundamentally changing the culture.   They change wording around, so as to make perversion into something socially acceptable.  

For instance, homosexuals are now "Gays", because they have a great lifestyle.  Forget that most of them are anything But Gay.  Its like Obamacare.  It is called "The Affordable Care Act", and is anything But affordable.  Its the wording that subtly steers things in the opposite direction of common sense.  

Sex, is now called "gender", when gender hasn't a Damned thing to do with Sex.  Gender is all about Words, not people.  But it sounds better than sex.  

They have called themselves "Liberals" and the only thing liberal about them is their mouths, where they spew out Horseshit.  They knew decades ago that they had to flee their real name because it was finally being seen for what it really was: Fascist Do-Gooder-ism run amok.  

The Left purposefully does this, because it keeps others confused, and after continued use, they become tired and simply give in to their Bullshit ways.  And that's how they win, as Progressives.  Its exactly as Glenn Beck has stated, Progressives want to change things through "Evolution" and not "Revolution", because the later would never be accepted.  But if it is slowly chipped away on a continuous basis, the other side will slowly give in.  

We have to fight ALL of this misdirection and tell them all to go to hell.  When you hear someone using "gender" when he/she means "sex", they need to be called out.  If you hear the word "Gay" for homosexuality, it too needs to be challenged.  I have no problem with homosexuality, and one of my favorite clients is a "five percenter".  And I love him like a brother.  So I am not being prejudiced about it.  I'm just demanding accuracy.  Gah

Okay, but remember there is no "right of privacy" in the Constitution. Justice Goldberg wrote in his opinion in the Griswald Concurrence that the elusive 9th Amendment MIGHT grant unspecified protections. Judge Robert Bork in his ill-fated Supreme Court confirmation hearings, argued that no such general right of privacy exists. If it did, then a pedophile would be protected from any outrages he commits in the sanctity of his own bedroom. The issue is controversial but I think Bork was right.

...But trying to affix "rights" to transgendered individuals that transgress on the "rights" of others is a real stretch that Obama found easy to make.

Alright, here we go folks. Social Marxism, i.e. Political Correctness, at its best.

Interesting, but to tackle online hate speech, someone must first define what that hate speech is. If hate speech is "profiling" then we get into a real murky place.

All this Social Marxism is really beginning to get totally out of control. How much more are we going to tolerate before there is 'push-back'?

Quote:Ontario to make driver's licence gender neutral. Province already issuing health cards that no longer display information about a person's sex

Ontario is introducing gender-neutral driver's licences and health cards.

Beginning in early 2017, drivers will be able to select X, instead of an M for male or F for female, for their licences.

This month the province started issuing health cards that no longer display information about a person's sex on the front of the card.

Those who want a new health card without the sex identifier before their regular renewal date can obtain one immediately through ServiceOntario at no cost.

The Liberal government said it is making the changes "to ensure the fair, ethical and equitable treatment of people with trans and non-binary gender identity."

Ontario will also launch public consultations this summer to develop policies on how the government collects, uses and displays sex and gender information on government forms and products.

Talk about Dumbing Down............ Gah

This guy is getting the right idea about how far this can be taken. Shock
