How “You Didn’t Build That” will come to our public schools

How “You Didn’t Build That” will come to our public schools

Is this a parody video or a glimpse of America circa 2015 if Obama is reelected?

Either way, its pretty funny (and scary).

Ooph, excellent spoof, horrible acting.

Explains the reason Obama’s college and law school transcripts have never been made public — “somebody else” made that happen. Somebody else also wrote the books he “authored”.

Sorry, I know this is OT…

Professor, this gentleman, Vernon Parker, is someone who deserves attention, he is running in the AZ-9th district. He gave the GOP weekly address this past week.

Perhaps this blog could bring attention to this guy. Very very impressive. Every in that district, please volunteer for his campaign if you can, and donate to his camp. His opponent is a certifiable lunatic.

Here is the weekly address he gave:

Clip #1: “It’s important to destroy their individualism while they’re young.”
Because when you do, then you get an individualism-destroyer, such as the one in Clip #2. You’re right. It is scary!

“MITTMENTUM”

Dear student needs counseling from the school, or she may not completely understand she is just another brick in the wall. She doesn’t seem to grasp how demeaning it is to other children, when she excels.

Put her on Ritalin.

It is stated that a 12th century theologian, John of Salisbury, said:

“We are like dwarfs sitting on the shoulders of giants. We see more, and things that are more distant, than they did, not because our sight is superior or because we are taller than they, but because they raise us up, and by their great stature add to ours.”

At a later date (17th century), Isaac Newton wrote:

“What Descartes did was a good step. You have added much several ways, and especially in taking the colours of thin plates into philosophical consideration. If I have seen a little further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.”

From both of these, I get a sense of balance, humility, gratitude, collaboration, and an appreciation of one’s achievements. Obama’s “You didn’t build that” suggests to me “I’ve got to tear down what you did to build up my ideas and myself.”

    Obama-types build themselves up, by tearing others down. Building themselves up requires actually work and effort, as opposed to affirmative-actioning themselves a predetermined outcome aided by a playing field, artificially, cleared of obstacles.

Will the ironies never end?

The background music, very appropriately, is “The Poor People of Paris” [where they have recently elected a socialist president based on his promises to raise taxes on the rich]!

Actually the comment on destroying individualism is more true than the producers probably realized. The definition of Career Ready as in all K-12 graduates must be Career Ready as the standard actually ties to Communitarianism and a daily responsibility to demonstrate what we do for others. It also why we are seeing definitions of student achievement and Growth as the measures for assessments that are all about targeting Values. Changing values as I wrote today so that all students will have “a new sense of community committed to the common good.”

If you want to respond “Excuse me?” Here’s an explanation on why Outcomes Based Education and now Systems Thinking and the “democratic purpose of schooling” all go after the same nonacademic aspects of the personality.

These education Supers, Principals, and Profs are treating the US Constitution as nonexistent when it comes to any sanctity of the individual. James Madison would not be amused since he considered thoughts, beliefs, and feelings to be protected as personal property of the individual. No more.
