Kill the Bastards!

I want something out right now for all to know. I firmly believe that the only fitting punishment for the most vile criminals in America is death. Not life in prison without possibility of parole, death.
So who are the most vile criminals in America? That's an easy one.
First are the murderers. Anyone who intentionally murders another human being, be it a result of gang violence, anger, terrorisim, or any of the other reasons for plotting to kill another human being and carrying it out deserves to die for the crime.
Second are the rapists. To forcibly rape a woman, or man, is not only vile and disgusting, it also causes permanent psychological damage to a level that many victims wished to die rather than live with the pain and shame of the horrible violence committed against them. Rapists should die.
Third are the child molestors. People who prey on the most helpless members of our society are the sickest of the sick. What's worse, they are the most likely people to repeat their crimes. these people more than any other need to never blight our streets again. They must die.
Fourth are the drug dealers. The drug trade is responsible for many murders, thefts, rapes, funding of terrorists, assaults, and more than any other criminal activity manages to destroy entire communities and kill and maim innocents in its' wake. Being a cog in this institution is to either commit, or to aid and abet every last one of these crimes. Drug dealers must die.
Why must these people die? Come on, ask a hard question, this is too easy.
These people must die not just because the crimes the commit are the most disgusting, agregious, and vile acts imaginable. They must die to protect the rest of us from them. They must die to deter others from committing these same crimes. They must die because it is a grave injustice, and I would say criminal, to ever let such people back into society for any reason. They must die because they do not deserve to get three hots and a cot plus full medical and dental as well as a free college education on the taxpayers dime when honest citezens cannot get the same benefits. It's unthinkable to reward such awful people with such niceties for doing such horrid things to their fellow man. Don't burden the victims by forcing them to care for these people!
How can I advocate such a barbaric punishment? I will go into this in far more depth in another posting, but here's the short version.
It is no more barbaric to kill one of these people thanit is to force them into a microcosm of society where they themselves will be raped, beaten, possibly murdered, and all with no hope of release. It is far more merciful to the rest of humanity to take these people out of the world. It will prevent all but the most determined people from committing these crimes, and as a result will save countless people from being victims of these same crimes. My concern is for the innocent victim, not for the criminal. I would rather kill the worst criminals and save the lives and livelihoods of honest, decent people than save the lives of criminals and allow the innocent to be raped, killed, etc. It is a great mercy to the innocent to give the harshest possible judgement to the worst criminals.

Minorities in the Presidential Cabinet

I make no secret of my ambition to become President of the United States of America sometime after I retire from the Army. With such an ambition it is important to begin considering every aspect of a future presidency now rather than waiting until my campaign becomes a reality.
As such I have been considering the Presidential Cabinet in context of today's social environment. Now, I don't want to sound like a liberal when I say this, but I would really like to find the best qualified minorities and fill every position with them. Before anyone starts screaming about affimative action or discrimination let me make my case for my decision.
Take a look at popular culture today. Look at who our children have to look up to. The media is saturated with with thugs and gangsters of all kinds in music, theater, and sports. It is increasingly hard to find a celebrity who is worth admiring simply because so many depraved people seem to get famous. These are bad role models, and my understanding is that children from poorer areas tend to look up to them as role models of success and seek to emulate them. Since it is a fact that a disproportionate number of poor children belong to a minority group that means that minorities are the most vulnerable to this deciet. I cannot allow this.
I want to provide the most positive role models for these children that I can. Rather than emulating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and George Washington Carver they copy thugs like Shyne and Fifty Cent. Rather than admiring and emulating any of our best citezens of today and yesterday crminals, thugs, disrespectful, and antisocial men and women are placed on a pedestal and practically worshipped as gods. This trend must be reversed. The best way I know how to do this is to take the most brilliant and ethical minorities in America and put them in highly visible positions of great power and influence. By doing this the right kind of people to admire and seek to be like will be spotlighted. They will have the power to shape American culture for the better rather than the worse as so many celebrities are wont to do. This is why I want a cabinet full of the best minorities I can find.
Our culture is what drives our nation. It shapes our ideology and molds our young people. One of the most important things a person can do is to have a positive affect on our culture. I know not everybody agrees with what I think is best for America, and not everyone who does will agree with my methods. But I must try. I will always do my very best. And, I am not closed off to other ideas.

Down With Public Schools!

Is it wrong to assume that the reason children who go to private schools get a better education than ones who go to public schools is that private schools get are better funded? It is!
Fact: The average private school operates on a smaller budget per student than even the worst public schools.
"How can this be?" you ask. Simple, it's called beuracracy. More public school money is wasted in the massive beauracracies that run them than is reasonable. There is really no direct correlation between the amount of money public schools get and the quality of education the children recieve. Sure extra money pays for more after school programs, better sports equipment, new textbooks, and the like. But the students still manage to not get the same quality of education as their private school counterparts.
Fact: The average private school student has more self discipline than the average public school student.
Private schools have in their education contracts with the parents clauses that allow them to take disciplinary actions that public schools are forbiddden to by law. Private schools are also not obligated to adhere to the mainstreaming of so called disabled students, specifically ones deemed to be "behavioally disabled". Behaviorally disabled is a term used to describe students who refuse to behave in class, thereby eliminating any disciplinary action of any kind that would correct the problem. The simple fact is that children need a strong structure with appropriate, again APPROPRIATE freedoms in order to deveolop and grow into responsible members of our society. Discipline is what causes students to actually study and do their homework, and what causes adults to get to work on time every day and take loving care of their children. The public schools have no discipline, private schools have great discipline.
Fact: Your gifted student is less important to the public school system than the "Special" ones.
Genuinely disabled students, like ones who suffer from mental retardation are required by law to be fully mainstreamed into regular classes with the students whose brains actually function at a high enough level to comprehend the classwork without disrupting the learning process for the other students. Also children with learning disabilities like dyslexia are also fully mainstreamed without recieving the seperate training they need to overcome their disability and then get mainstreamed. This is a disservice to the disabled students and the non-disabled students alike. It is improper to treat such a diverse student body as if they were all the same without regard to special needs. Apparently the public school system thinks that doing this would hurt a child's self esteem.
Fact: Vocational training is rapidly vanishishing from the public school system.
Auto shop, wood shop, metal shop, and other vocational classes that teach marketable skills to students who do not want to go to college are being phased out of many public school systems. This makes no sense to me since college is not the place to go to learn how to be a carpenter, mechanic, machinist, electrician, plumber, heavy equipment operator, or many other essentail and highly paid forms of skilled labor. I propose that students who want ot go into such fields should be apprenticed out in the afternoons while taking vital academic courses like English, Math, HIstory, Science, and Civics in the morning.
Fact: Most private school teachers make more than public school teachers.
No way! With less money than public schools? Impossible! Unless there is less money vanishing into a cumbersome beauracracy.
Fact: The government would actually save money if it privatized all the schools and simply gave tuition vouchers to the parents to spend on the school of their choice.
Doing this would foster competition among the various schools to provide better educational opportunities than the others to attract the most and best students. It's simple economics; a private school will vanish if it cannot get students because it will not have money. It would also give families the power of choice, and therefore more control over their children's futures. It would also allow the schools to operate in accordance with local charters that parents could use as a criterion to decide iif they want their children attending that school, rather than suffering under bulky, well-intentioned, but usually harmful laws and Department of Education rules and regulations. It would also wipe out most of the Department of Education itself, reducing it to just a few people who make aptitude tests and monitor the results our schools get from afar, and save us millions of tax dollars. There would also be the issue of bad teachers who can't be fired under the current rules of the public school system. Private schools can freely dump bad teachers. For you seperataion of church and state people who worry that some parents will spend the vouchers on religious schools, get over it! It's called freedom of choice. Once the government releases the funds (vouchers) to a private citezen it is the citezen, not the government allocating the money to the religious school. Seperation of church and state remains intact.
So down with public schools! Privatize them all! Give parents school vouchers so they can have the power to choose the best school for their children's futures! Bring American education into the new century and allow us to realize our true potential!
p.s. No I don't know how to spell beauracracy, or beaureau, I went to public school.

Jewish Terrorist?

I must confess that I am both saddened and dissappointed in the act of terrorism a Jewish settler committed today. By shooting up a bus full of arabs he has debased himself to the level of the foul jihadi terrorists who have been plaguing Israel for years.
I have always been a staunch supporter of the Israeli people in their struggle for peace in a hostile part of the world. The fact is that most Muslims want Isreal taken from the Jews and made into an Islamic nation. The fact is that the terrorists who have been murdering Jews for years have been allowed to continue because local arabs are disinclined to stop them. The fact is that Isreal belonged to the Jews long before Islam ever existed, and it belongs to them now. I support the Isrealis, and stauchly defend Isreal's soveriegnety as a Jewish state. But I cannot support acts of murder and terror.
The Isreali man who shot up that bus was beaten to death on the spot by a mob of Arabs, and it was rightly done. Murderers do not belong alive in this world. The only thing that would have been better is if that mob had taken him alive to the authorities and lett he proper chanels convict and condemn him to death for his murders. I support the same treatment of Muslim terrorists. Murderers should die.
I hope this is not the beginning of a new trend for Isrealis. So far they have proven themselves to be better than their enemies by not stooping to their level. The Isrealis have been the noble and long suffering side of the conflict. The Isrealis have been the unjustly persecuted ones. I call on them to continue to be noble and long suffering. Nothing good can come of murder. However, if the attacks on the nation of Israel continue it is fully within their rights to declare war and use the military to destroy their enemies.
