Why is the Media ignoring the rampant Sexual Abuse in our Public Schools??

help

Here’s a test: just Google “teacher student abuse“. You’ll get millions of classroom statutory rape articles. If you Google “teacher student sex“, you get more… a LOT more.

Like this one:

(via WTSP News) – “…For the first time, we are hearing from the Polk County school district about a Lakeland teacher who, according to police, admitted to having sex with her 17-year-old student. 10 News has learned critical red flags may have been missed with Jennifer Fichter because the Polk County school superintendent said she falsified her employment application….”

“Who will Watch the Watchmen?” …because Gov’t Abuse of Power is now commonplace

Here in the United States, we operate on what’s essentially an honor system of governance: we trust that government officials (whether elected or appointed) will be honest and act within the confines of the law.

They’re our “Watchmen”: duty-bound public servants who’ve sworn an oath to protect and uphold our local/national Constitutions.

But what happens when that trust is violated? What happens when, time after time, we see that the folks entrusted to enforce the rules are bending, breaking or completely ignoring those very same rules to our detriment?

The #Obamacare Exchanges: made-to-order for Fraud and Abuse

corruption ahead

This week a news report from CNBC raised some eyebrows, as it highlighted the likely risk of fraud and abuse in conjunction with the implementation of Obamacare:

Scammers have been at it for more than a year now, but consumer advocates and security experts warn that the problem will worsen as we get closer to Oct. 1. That’s when the millions of uninsured Americans can use a health insurance exchange, set-up by their state or by the federal government, to shop for coverage.

Worst lawsuit ever? “Woman kills her 3 kids, then seeks $$$ from Wrongful Death Settlement”

stop-lawsuit-abuse-logoWe’ve mentioned ludicrous lawsuits before, but this one just might top the list.

From last month, courtesy of the Times Union:

A mentally disturbed suburban New York woman who drowned her three young children in a bathtub in 2008 wants a cut of $350,000 in wrongful death settlements obtained by the children’s fathers, attorneys said…

Is it just me, or does this smack of the old joke about chutzpah, where the kid kills his mother and father, and then throws himself on the mercy of the court because he’s an orphan?

Tragically, this isn’t a joke:

The #IRS: “Above The Law”

irs 1They must think we’re idiots.

At the conclusion of a week where we were treated to discovery after stomach-turning discovery, showing IRS abuses that seemed more like Mafia standard protocol than Good Governance, two points were made painstakingly clear:

Laws SHOULD be Simple, (…which is precisely why they aren’t)

Ah, another week, another day-to-day grind of attempting to decipher what the heck new story/law/bill/excuse/meme Obama-&-Company’s pushing, and if it even makes any sense to them.

And ‘sense’ is the operative word.

That whole “making sense” aspect of rhetoric by our leaders is becoming rare indeed. Worse, it is completely unheard of in the laws which they pass. Consider Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, and numerous others: these were Gigantic bills which then became, well…. Gigantic-er.

They also became virtually indecipherable.

Our good friend, Dapper Dan, has a post up which speaks to this issue. You really, really, need to read the whole thing, so I’m just going to give a very small portion below:

Because of the pages upon pages of incoherent language, the law can be “understood” in any way the powers want (or however the right amount of money can buy).  When we all read the law, we should all come to the same conclusion about what it says.  If we don’t, then the law needs to be re-written until it is clear.

James Madison in Federalist 62 said,

“It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.”

Anyone remember Nancy Pelosi saying we need to pass Obamacare so we can find out what is in it?

E.C. Wines in his ‘Commentaries on the Laws of the Ancient Hebrews‘ said,

“The style in which the laws are written is not beneath the attention of legislators. It should be concise, simple, clear, and explicit. It should excite in every mind the same ideas; and this because the object is to establish justice and teach duties—not to furnish specimens of rhetoric.” 

In addition, DD also includes references and quotes from Larry Arnn, F. A. Hayek, and Ayn Rand in his discussion.

Good stuff. Please, click HERE and go read it all.

As the following few weeks progress, remember that what we are electing this year is much, much more than simply one man, or even a pair of men. We are electing almost our ENTIRE legislating body, and we need men & women at all levels of government who will take up this fight on our behalf.

I pray we each choose well.
