i am just a kitten and have not been alive very long, so i have a question:
before twitter, how did you know who all the super-duper crazy people were?
was there like a directory or did they wear nametags or something?
Looks like TulsaTeresa was indoctrinated in an unaccountable system that resulted in no discernible education.
Public schools ARE my own fucking dime.
"Public money shouldn't be used to indoctrinate children in unaccountable systems that may result in no education."
This is the best argument I've heard for the abolition of the public school system!
In the past you could tell who was a crazy person by how many cats they had!
It's even easier now--the people still wearing masks are the real nutjobs!
I’m convinced people have always been this unhinged and the main effect of social media has just been to make this almost impossible to ignore. You used to have to invite people over for Thanksgiving dinner and open a few too many bottles of wine to get this kind of insight. Now I can read the loony bin common room without getting out of bed.
when I was growing up we actually learned to read and write, add and subtract, there was none of this foolishness. Having started a charter school. I am well aware of the alternatives available to parents. What this fool has forgotten is that the public pays taxes to fund the education of our children. Funding students frightens the teachers union because they will have a diminishing amount of taxpayer money. Which will in turn fund more charter schools.
I really wish someone could figure out a way to bring Milton Friedman back. We need him.
My approach is that everybody's f'n crazy....I don't need any directory......it's the sane ones that are hard to find :)!! We need a directory for those!!
Oh you mean like homeschooling my son, which resulted in him getting into an honors program at a private university? Got it.
TulsaTeresa is a KovidKaren. Beware of overweight single women with sanpaku eyes.
It was a lot less obvious. I am thankful that we have Twitter and paper facemasks so that today we can instantly spot those who are wasting oxygen.
Iron Law of Woke Projection? 😬
That tweet is the best argument for vouchers. Public education under the thumb of the institutional left is apparently inviolate. Diversity and inclusion is a facet of public education unless you are conservative, libertarian, Christian, Jewish, non-guilty prostrating white, critically thinking, climate hysteria skeptic, Covid educated, etc.
No matter how often they do this, somehow their total lack of self-awareness never ceases to amaze me.
The public schools are edumacating people?
The lost art of self-awareness.
Twitter is where those who lack Critical Thinking Skills gather to receive their Overlord marching orders...
Oh gatito pequeño... in the past, people like this were visible from a mile away because of their big red clown noses. 🤡 Twitter just makes them visible from across the continent.
Lol, that's some nuclear weapons grade projection right there. Also note the word "public", no you simpleton it is not "public" money nor is it "public" education, it is taxes which are confiscated at the point of a gun and it is government education, but the truth is the government schools are not educating they are indoctrinating/grooming our children to be good little perverted marxist soldiers. And if I am paying for it I damn sure should have a say in how it's spent.
I have to pay for all of the material for my children's homeschooling and I do it gladly. I think about Marcus Aurelius' advice that you should keep your children out of public schools and pay generously for their tutoring. I can't afford a tutor but I just do it myself. It is worth it to avoid people like the originator of that tweet.
That tweet is an amazingly accurate unconscious self-own. What a clown
Sounds like Tulsa Teresa is encouraging everyone to vote no on any school levies
Every village had an idiot...
Uh, hey TulsaTeresa....you must also believe in unicorns, fairies and leprechauns...they are about as real as the PUBLIC's MONEY!
Bwahahahahaha!! Oh Gatito Bueno! 🤭
Groomers gonna groom...
The vast majority of urban public school kids can't read even remotely near grade level.
How about giving them a lifeline from more of the same?!
It's not fair that we make many of these children of immigrants travel thousands of dangerous miles to give them such an inferior education!!
Common sense is now uncommon. The experts are having a horrible time trying to teach AI common sense.
You mean taking people’s money and spending it on whatever you want isn’t “unaccountable”?
That like saying men are women.
I wish I had a more articulate and clever response! But .. my gut reaction is..what an Asshole this person is!
So where, exactly, does she think "public money" comes from, anyway?
Actual quote from an LA Times editorial yesterday: "Where have all the children gone? California’s public school enrollment is down by 110,000 students this year, continuing a five-year decline, and no one is sure why or what to do about it." Sure, no one knows why. Stay in that information bubble LA Times.
One of the Koch brothers goals, as stated on their website, is to get rid of public education. First there were lucrative standardized tests, so teachers didn't get to teach or foster resilence; in America they got rid of recess as it took time away from standardized test prep, so all of the brain body development was interrupted, then they threw wokeism into it, so kids have to read Anti-Racist baby. And that's not to mention 72 vaccines on the schedule for which companies have zero liability. Now masks and screens. Some force is trying to turn the kids into zombies or mindless robots. We need parallel education systems. If I weren't too old to live in the far north, I'd get the free land they are offering in the mountains of the Yukon and start a republic.
My proposals: 1) defund all public education; 2) raise voting age to 25; 3) verifiable paper ballots only (no electronic voting machines)
"Public money" = money the government took from people under the threat of force.
Wow. lol. And where is this "far right" that these monsters talk about? I've been looking for them for years and most of the time I find that most people just want to live their lives in a sane world and be left the hell alone. If that's "far right" then sign me up.
They don’t wear name tags, Gatito, they wear masks.
NEWSFLASH: public money IS my dime!
Priceless. Does this person know where "public money" comes from?
We need separation of school and state.
It would not be unreasonable to posit that Twitter helped create many of the crazy people that now exist. In fact, social media created the need for a whole new lexicon, because this kind of crazy “seems sane” to an entire group of people. Yesteryear’s “crazy” folks were rightly seen and heard by everyone else as out of their minds insane, and that kind of crazy was usually accompanied by an inability to function as a normal member of society. From where I sit, this new “social media crazy” is much more dangerous. Sure, you can pass someone like this in the street, or even have a casual conversation with them, and never know they think this way, but they spend their time, energy, and resources trying to destroy everything decent and remove the actually sane people from society.
We need to return to the days where it was not just a right, but an obligation, to refuse to suffer fools.
Tulsa Teresa has no idea that's she's actually right: public money shouldn't be used to indoctrinate children in unaccountable systems that may result in no education.
This is a message that resonates with loads of parents and other taxpayers. She should let all the blue districts know that she's unhappy with how they're running things!
You should see my school district’s marketing ploy trying to get their failed levy to pass on attempt #2. Signs, mail and texts galore! They put on info nights showing what a levy increase could buy for the students— after wasting how much on incessant woke indoctrination, I wonder?
public money should not be paid to teachers talking sex and perversion, by any standard, to children whose parents are responsible for the development of the moral strength of the united states!
Public money? Wtf is that?
Upside down cake: who funds who who Indoctrinates who and who fails to educate.who—can’t make it up.
Like Wile E. Coyote falling off a cliff
I look for obvious signs of head wounds, but then again long hair & wigs can cover those...
The alternative to funding students is fu**ing up students.
