School Test Teaches Kids: "Commands Of Government Officials Must Be Obeyed By All" posted 10/31/2013, 12:23 AM (Infowars)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
A parent of a ten year old was shocked to discover a grammar and writing test paper that their child brought home from school reads more like document from an authoritarian country such as China.

The parent sent a portion of the test paper to Infowars, revealing that it contains sentences such as “The commands of government officials must be obeyed by all.”

The paper uses such sentences and asks school children to replace certain words in order to make the sentence contain a possessive noun.

Others within the paper include:
“The job of a president is not easy.”

“He makes sure the laws of the country are fair”

“The wants of an individual are less important than the needs of a nation”
Here is the portion of the paper Infowars received:

Upon further investigation it appears that the paper is part of a set produced by Pearson Education, a global corporation that provides education publishing and assessment services to schools in the US and the rest of the world. Pearson is the world's largest for-profit education business.

The particular sentence about everyone obeying government commands appears in other Pearson papers, such as this fifth grade grammar test.

According to the company’s Wikipedia page and its website, Pearson owns leading educational media brands including Addison--Wesley, BBC Active, Bug Club, eCollege, Fronter, Longman, MyEnglishLab, Penguin Reade

The World's Fastest Failure posted 10/31/2013, 12:23 AM (Jeffrey Tucker)
[Category: Economy]
Obamacare certainly has made history. It has set the record for the fastest-failing Big Government program in world history. This isn’t only about a website flop; it is about the failure of government to accomplish the aims of Obamacare in general, and in a way that has profoundly touched millions of individual lives.

“Train wreck” is a good term here. You know it is coming. You can see the maps. You can predict the timing and the damage. But there is still something stunning abou

[Category: Politics/Corruption]
The White House is ordering insurance companies not to criticize Obamacare and threatening “retribution” against executives who speak out, according to CNN reporter Drew Griffin.

During a segment on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 last night, Griffin revealed that insurance companies had been told to “keep quiet” about the fact that millions of Americans are being told that they cannot keep their existing policies, contradicting Barack Obama’s promise that, “If…you like your plan, you

Now one t-shirt designer, who was specifically targeted is suing both the NSA and The Department of Homeland Security, for violating his First Amendment rights.

The Whole Surveillance State Must Go posted 10/31/2013, 12:17 AM (Anthony Gregory)
[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
The NSA surveillance scandal has awakened Americans to their dwindling privacy rights. Now is the time to stand up and consistently defend the Fourth Amendment.

For years, the government has spied on all our financial dealings, our medical records, our bank transactions. Liberals shrugged because it all served to build the regulatory state they wanted. Meanwhile, the government claimed ever greater authority to search people as they went about their business or drove in their cars

The Transportation Security Agency believes that 75% of Americans are suspect. One indicator that you are a "risk" while flying? Owning a passport.

And so, what does the TSA do about it?

Even for domestic flights, they scan government and private databases including car registration and employment information.

Hey FDA, Mind Your Own Business posted 10/31/2013, 12:17 AM (Jonathan Carp)
[Category: Commentary]
One of the first things I learned in my health care career is that pain is an inherently subjective experience. Different people experience different levels of pain in different situations, and everyone has their own idiosyncratic problem areas — one can’t bear dental pain while another finds back injuries unbearable. Because of this fact, backed up by neurological research, I was taught that we cannot take a cookie-cutter approach to pain management and that each patient deserves individual att... (more)

[Category: Big Brother/Orwellian]
A prank set up by a comedian and a film crew in which shoppers were told that they would have to undergo a full body scan in order to enter a candy store shockingly illustrates how a majority of Americans will willingly submit to draconian invasions of their privacy with barely a thought for the consequences.

The prank, which took place in San Luis Obispo, California, utilized a real mobile body scanner as well as a model who acted as a plant by being scanned repeatedly. A man wi

The War on Americans posted 10/31/2013, 12:16 AM (David S. D'Amato)
[Category: Commentary]
That the consumption of certain drugs ought to be proscribed by law is probably taken for granted by most people. The presumption in favor of banning some drugs has become so strong, so embedded in the mainstream of popular discourse as to be practically beyond debate — notwithstanding either philosophical or empirical issues that stand in contradiction to the accepted view. But at this stage in the American experiment in drug prohibition, the case for legalizing drugs, for leaving them within t... (more)
