How NOT to deal with bullies… (Can you make this about Common Core too?)

This is all horrible advice from a Nebraska school….

A school in Lincoln, Nebraska is wiping some major egg off its face after a horrible bullying advice flyer was sent home with kids.

Zeman Elementary School fifth-graders were recently sent home with a flyer to help teach them how to act if they’re being bullied. It’s more shitty than you can possibly ever imagine. Here’s just a few of the highlights:

Apparently, they got deluged with OUTRAGE!

Don’t worry though, after being inundated with outraged parents, the school district responded and apologized, with a portion of a letter written by the school’s principal:

A flyer that contained inaccurate information regarding how to handle bullying situations was sent home with Zeman Elementary School fifth-graders.

[...]

Our educators at Zeman Elementary School work hard to provide accurate and appropriate lessons and education for our students in how to handle bullying situations. The flyer was sent home with good intentions, unfortunately, it contained advice that did not accurately reflect LPS best practices regarding response to bullying incidents.

The post also included a link to a better, far less shitty anti-bullying fact sheet (which apparently no one thought to Google before making this terrible flyer).

Question for my Common Core haters: What does this have to do with Common Core?

Everyday another ridiculous question from a kids’ textbook pops up on the Internet and the anti-Common Core folks claim it highlights the evils of Common Core out of Henry County, Alabama!

Here is today’s:

Now, I will agree that message (being the best is bad) is pretty horrible BUT I want to know what it has to do with Common Core standards?

I asked an anti-Common Core FB poster what this has to do with standards and they stated…

You can say “where in the standards is that laid out” all you want but these textbooks and worksheets aligned to the Common Core standards are chalk full of this kind of thinking and worse. Until AL figures out a way to fix it, we will continue to have a problem. I’m not saying I think the standards are good either. The standards for the early childhood grades are developmentally inappropriate.

Help me out here…

Madison County WIDOWS are the latest victim of of ObamaCare…

Fantastic…

“More than two dozen widows who were married to retired Madison county employees, lost their health insurance coverage earlier this year. And now one commissioner says it’s time to give it back to them. The change was sparked by the new federal health care law, but whether or not coverage can actually be restored really isn’t clear,” said the anchor.

Says the reporter, “Madison county commissioner Roger Jones says no one realized just how much the new federal health care law would change things, especially for the spouses of some of his former employees.”

“A lot of these people are on fixed incomes, low fixed incomes. Some of them are living on Social Security and very little else and health insurance is very important to them,” says the county commissioner.

“The widows who were dropped in January had always been covered under the county’s old self-insured health care plan. But officials tell us the program had to be abandoned when they were informed that new regulations in Obamacare would amount to an extra $25 million dollars per year, money that chairman Dale Strong says the county simply didn’t have,” says the local reporter.

“Affordable” Care Act.

Madison County should make this right….

“Obama doesn’t want your guns”… Oh he does, he just knows he can’t have them…

AL.com’s Kyle Whitmire writes

Obama doesn’t want your gun, but Michael Bloomberg is coming for it

First he came for our sodas.

Now Michael Bloomberg is aiming for your guns.

The former mayor of New York says he will spend $50 million this year on nationwide grass-roots movements to curb gun violence and advocate gun control.

And that money won’t just go to feel-good TV spots. Bloomberg says that the anti-gun movement must emulate the tactics of the NRA by targeting candidates who are soft on gun control.

“They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’” he said of the N.R.A. to the New York Times. “‘If you don’t vote with us we’re going to go after your kids and your grandkids and your great-grandkids. And we’re never going to stop.’”

When did say that? Never.

Regardless…

Obama wants your guns, make no doubt about it. He just can’t have it.

Some quotes:

Citizenship means standing up for the lives that gun violence steals from us each day. I have seen the courage of parents, students, pastors, and police officers all over this country who say “we are not afraid,” and I intend to keep trying, with or without Congress, to help stop more tragedies from visiting innocent Americans in our movie theaters, shopping malls, or schools like Sandy Hook.

What Obama said in San Francisco seemed to denigrate the very people he was struggling to win: “You go into some of these small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them,” Obama told his donors. “Each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are going to regenerate and they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or antitrade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”The fund-raiser was closed to the press. No one from the Obama campaign even had a recording of the comments. Hillary had argued that she was the real champion of the beleaguered middle class, while Obama was the darling of the latte-drinkers. She said, “Senator Obama’s remarks are elitist and out of touch. They are not reflective of the values and beliefs of Americans.” Obama tried to backpedal.

Hale DeMar, a 52-year-old Wilmette resident, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor violations for shooting, in the shoulder and leg, a burglar who broke into his home not once, but twice. Cook County prosecutors dropped all charges against DeMar.In March 2004, the Illinois Senate passed Senate Bill 2165, a law introduced in response to DeMar’s case, with provisions designed to assert a right of citizens to protect themselves against home invasions, such that self-defense requirements would be viewed to take precedence over local ordinances against handgun possession. The measure passed the Illinois Senate by a vote of 38-20. Barack Obama was one of the 20 state senators voting against the measure.

Governor Rod Blagojevich vetoed the bill. On Nov. 9, 2004, the Illinois Senate voted 40-18 to override Blagojevich’s veto. Again, Obama acted against the bill.

On Nov. 17, the Illinois House voted overwhelmingly, 85-30, to override the governor’s veto and Senate Bill 2165 became law.

Source: Obama Nation, by Jerome Corsi, p.241-242 , Aug 1, 2008Obama was being misleading when he denied that his handwriting had been on a document endorsing a state ban on the sale and possession of handguns in Illinois. Obama responded, “No, my writing wasn’t on that particular questionnaire. As I said, I have never favored an all-out ban on handguns.”Actually, Obama’s writing was on the 1996 document, which was filed when Obama was running for the Illinois state Senate. A Chicago nonprofit, Independent Voters of Illinois, had this question, and Obama took hard line:

35. Do you support state legislation to:
a. ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns? Yes.
b. ban assault weapons? Yes.
c. mandatory waiting periods and background checks? Yes.

Obama’s campaign said, “Sen. Obama didn’t fill out these state Senate questionnaires–a staffer did–and there are several answers that didn’t reflect his views then or now. He may have jotted some notes on the front page of the questionnaire, but some answers didn’t reflect his views.”

How do you reconcile those two positions?A: Because I think we have two conflicting traditions in this country. I think it’s important for us to recognize that we’ve got a tradition of handgun ownership and gun ownership generally. And a lot of law-abiding citizens use it for hunting, for sportsmanship, and for protecting their families. We also have a violence on the streets that is the result of illegal handgun usage. And so I think there is nothing wrong with a community saying we are going to take those illegal handguns off the streets. And cracking down on the various loopholes that exist in terms of background checks for children, the mentally ill. We can have reasonable, thoughtful gun control measure that I think respect the Second Amendment and people’s traditions.

Yeah, he wants to ban handguns but doesn’t want to take your guns.
