Small Town Warzone’s – Government Schools

From AFA:

18 year old Ryan Schallenberger of Chesterfield South Carolina which is a small town of about 1,500 people planned on blowing up his high school. “Authorities learned of the student’s plans to commit mass murder at his school. Police discovered a hate-filled journal lauding the Columbine High School killers, an audiotape to be played after he perished during his rampage, and a year’s worth of plans for the bombing that included a hand-drawn map of the school. Prosecutor Jay Hodge said, “The kid had the intellect and the means and the materials to carry it out.”

This is what happens when you educate the mind but not the conscience.

Why do the American people continue place thier precious children to these warzones?

Government Schools: “Drug Him or Lose Him”

Here are a few excerpts from the book by Bruce Shortt titled “The Harsh Truth About Public Schools” published by the Chalcedon Foundation. These excerpts deal with the effects and over use of ritalin in the government schools and how teachers as agents of the state can accuse you of “child abuse and neglect” if you refuse to comply and drug your children.

The book is available at Chalcedon or Amazon . I highly recommend this book, it is a must read for every parent before they decide to put their children in the government school system…

“AS JAZZED AS ANY SPEED FREAK” (pg231)

There is ample scientific evidence to indicate that Ritalin is a very powerful drug with serious side effects. But what is it really like to be medicated with Ritalin? What is it like on the “inside”? Children, unfortunately are not articulate or experienced enough to give us much insight into this question. But Walter Kim, a professional writer, describes eloquently his experience with Ritalin after he had been diagnosed with adult “ADD.” According to Kim, the “Ritalinized” state of mind is far from benign — no matter how calm or in control the Ritalin user may seem to outside observers:

“I felt guilty each time I renewed my prescription, but like Ritalin’s other effects, it didn’t show. I felt guilty because the drug was so damned powerful — easily as euphoria inducing as any illegal substance I’d ever tried. In fact, its effects were better. Cleaner. Tighter. Plus, compared to street drugs, the stuff was cheap. For the same amount cokeheads pay for one night’s high, I could soar for a month, without fear of the police. Not that I didn’t feel paranoid anyhow. During the eighteen months I took the drug, I rehearsed countless times a scene in which a cop pulled me over for a traffic infraction, looked deep into my dilated pupils, then spotted the pill bottle on the seat beside me. “It’s a prescription, officer,” I’d say. And what could he do about it? Not a thing. There I am, as jazzed as any speed freak who’s just put his girlfriend in the hospital after an all-night quarrel in a motel room, and yet I’m untouchable, innocent, free to go.”

Are you still wondering why Ritalin is being abused as a street drug or why it is being widely used as a recreational drug by teenagers? Kim’s experience with Ritalin also showed him how Ritalin could be prescribed to so many children: “It’s no wonder, I thought, that parents and teachers love the stuff…. Forget how the little white pills make Johnny feel.., they make the adults looking after him feel great.”Kim ultimately took himself off of Ritalin. Children don’t have that option, even if they, like Kim, could understand what is being done to them.


WELL, NOW THAT YOU ASK, THERE ARE A FEW SIDE—EFFECTS (pg219)

Here are some of the side effects for Ritalin listed by the Physician~ Desk Reference: inability to fall asleep and stay asleep, nervousness, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, weight loss, abnormally fast heartbeat, chest pain, dizziness, headache, hives, jerking, pulse changes, skin rash, Tourette’s syndrome, and severe and multiple twitching and writhing movements. Users are also warned that “suppression of growth has been reported with the long term use of stimulants,” long-term abuse can lead to tolerance and mental dependence with varying degrees of abnormal behavior, and “Long term effects of Ritalin in children have not been well established.”

Critics of Ritalin are less circumspect about the risks so blandly described by the Physician~ Drug Reference. Dr. Peter Breggin, for example notes the following:

  • Ritalin can cause inattention, hyperactivity, and aggression – in other words, the symptoms of ADHD!
  • Ritalin can suppress a child’s growth (height and weight), but there are no studies of how this growth suppression might affect the child’s brain development. Moreover, there are studies that indicate that long-term use of Ritalin canresult in shrinkage of parts of the brain.
  • Ritalin can cause permanent, disfiguring tics and muscle spasms.
  • Ritalin can ofren make children anxious, sometimes causing them to act in ways that seem “crazy.
  • Ritalin can cause withdraxval symptoms when one or more doses are missed.

A 2001 study by researchers at the University of Buffalo reports that Ritalin may cause long-term changes in the brain similar to those produced by amphetamines and cocaine.’More specifically, Ritalin was found to activate certain genes linked to addiction known as cfos genes.” Moreover, these genes were activated “in a pattern similar to that seen among those who use cocaine and amphetamines, “199 which may provide the biological basis for the University of California study’s finding that Ritalin is a “gateway” drug.

DRUG HIM OR LOSE HIM (pg226)

As incredible as it may seem, school districts are beginning to threaten parents with the loss of their children if they don’t want to medicate them. Here are just two examples:

  • A 7 year-old boy’s parents were concerned about the side-effects he was suffering from Ritalin. After the parents spoke to the school administrators about their decision to take their son off the drug, the school administrators called Child Protective Services alleging child abuse. As a result, the parents were placed on a state-wide list of alleged child abusers and ensnared in a court battle to clear their names and keep their child.
  • In another case, a mother decided to take her 9 year-old son off of a drug cocktail that included Ritalin, Paxil, and Dexadrine because they caused him to hallucinate. This led to the school district officials calling the police and Child Protective Services in an effort to enforce their preference that the boy be drugged.

According to observers, government schools “are increasingly using accusations of child abuse and neglect” if parents resist drugging their children. David Lansner, a New York City lawyer who has seen cases similar to those described, reports, “The schools are now using child protective services to enforce their own desires and their own policies.” Similarly, Dr. Lawrence H. Diller has noted: “It is no longer simply an issue of which school or class a child will attend. Instead, some parents are being threatened with the possibility of losing custody of their children if they refuse to comply with suggested treatment for an alleged medical condition [ADHD]

One of the shocking aspects of these developments is that the government has traditionally respected parental decisions regarding medical treatment for their children unless the life of the child was in danger. In these cases, nothing of the sort is at stake. The government school officials in these instances simply believe that drugging the child is a better medical decision, and they obviously mean to have their way.

Public Schools – Educational Neutrality? (The Real Agenda)

“I am convinced that the battle for humankind’s future must be waged and won in the public school classrooms by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the new proselytizers of a new faith, a religion of humanity. These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preacher. The classroom must and will become an arena of conflict between the old and the new―the rotting corpse of Christianity, together with all its adjacent evils and misery, and the new faith (humanism), resplendent in its promise.”

John Dunphy, “A Religion for the New Age,” Humanist Magazine

“I think that the most important factor moving us toward a secular society has been the educational factor. Our schools may not teach Johnny how to read properly, but the fact that Johnny is in school until he is 16 tends toward the elimination of religious superstition. The average American child now acquires a high school education, and this militates against Adam and Eve and all other myths of alleged history.”

P. Blanchard ‘The Humanist” 1983

“Education is thus a most powerful ally of Humanism, and every American public school is a school of Humanism. What can theistic Sunday-schools, meeting for an hour once a week and teaching only a fraction of the children, do to stem the tide of a five—day program of humanistic teaching.”

Charles Francis Potter “Humanism: A New Religion”

“What the Church has been for medieval man, the public school must become for democratic and rational man. God would be replaced by the concept of the public good.”

Horace Mann, Father of public education

“There is no God and there is no soul. Hence, there are no needs for the props of traditional religion. With dogma and creed excluded, immutable truth is also dead and buried. There is no room for fixed, natural laws or moral absolutes.”

John Dewey, Father of modern American public education

“The schools cannot allow parents to influence the kind of values-education their children receive in school; that is what is wrong with those who say there is a universal system of values. Our (humanistic) goals are incompatible with theirs. We must change their values.”

Paul Haubner, specialist for the NEA

“The major function of the school is the social orientation of the individual. It must seek to give him understanding of the transition to a new social order.”

Willard Givens, Executive Secretary, NEA

“Dramatic changes in the way we will raise our children in the year 2000 are indicated, particularly in terms of schooling…We will need to recognize that the so-called basic skills, which currently represent nearly the total effort in elementary schools, will be taught in one-quarter of the present school day…When this happens- and it’s near- the teacher can rise to his true calling. More than a dispenser of information, the teacher will be a conveyor of values…We will be agents of change.”

Catherine Barrett , former NEA president

“Every child in America who enters school at the age of five is mentally ill, because he comes to school with allegiance toward our elected officials, toward our founding fathers, toward our institutions, toward the preservation of this form of government. . .patriotism, nationalism, sovereignty… . All of that proves the children are sick, because the truly well individual is one who has rejected all of those things and is what I would call the true international child of the future.”

Dr. William Pierce (Harvard University) in a Lecture to 200 teachers 1987

“The educational philosophy of today becomes the political policy of tomorrow.”

Abraham Lincoln

 

A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher.  Luke 6:40

 

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.

Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts.

Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 (NKJV)

Are You Sure You Want to Send Your Kid to a Public School?

A “dress policy” is the solution?

If your place of work was like this would you even show up?  

Why would anyone send their kid to this kind of a war zone?

Oh, I see…  Its not in your neighborhood school (are you so sure?)
