Indoctrination In Albemarle County, Virginia

Of all places! Usually, this area is more conservative than to allow the following:


Lyrics:
Some people have it all
But they still don’t think they have enough
They want more money
A faster ride
They’re not content
Never satisfied
Yes — they’re the 1 percent

I used to be one of the 1 percent
I worked all the time
Never saw my family
Couldn’t make life rhyme
Then the bubble burst
It really, really hurt
I lost my money
Lost my pride
Lost my home
Now I’m part of the 99

Some people have it all
But they still don’t think they have enough
They want more money
A faster ride
They’re not content
Never satisfied
Yes — they’re the 1 percent

I used to be sad, now I’m satisfied
’Cause I really have enough
Though I lost my yacht and plane
Didn’t need that extra stuff
Could have been much worse
You don’t need to be first
’Cause I’ve got my friends
Here by my side
Don’t need it all

I’m so happy to be part of the 99

  1. '"They don't censor what the kids write. They don't shape what the kids write. It all comes out of the kids own mouths and the kids own words," said Albemarle County School Board Chair, Steve Koleszar.

    But some are questioning if third graders were able to write these lyrics and others say regardless of who wrote the song, it does not belong in school.

    "Does this also include religious content of lyrics? Would it include profanity? Does the school at any point say this content is inappropriate for an eight-year-old?," questions Thorpe.

    Kid Pan Alley leaders have addressed the song, saying "we have taken swift action to clarify our guidelines for lyrical content."

    School officials are standing by the Kid Pan Alley program and also the lyrics.

    "The kids choose the topic, this class chose the topic and those are their words." explains Koleszar.'

    Okay, I really don't believe these lyrics were written by 8-year-olds, but ... whatever. What's a little Socialist indoctrination by our edgimicashun system, eh?

  2. Benning,
    I just blogrolled you.

    I know that I used to have you on the blog roll, but when I moved sites, somehow you disappeared from my blog roll.

  4. What does the Albemarle County School Board think of THIS, which I found at Texas Fred's blog? Excerpt:

    ALBANY — Police are taking steps to protect an Albany police officer whose family has received threats after he was publicly identified for using pepper spray to quell Occupy Albany protesters last week....

    More at the above news article, dated December 29, 2011.

  5. THIRD GRADERS?!? Am I to believe that a third grader wrote this?

    Bullshit.

    This is outright, shameless, naked propaganda, brought to you by the leftist NEA.

  6. Speaking of indoctrination, more and more surreal:

    ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Participation To Earn Class Credit At Columbia U.
    Announcement Comes As Dozens Are Arrested On New Year’s Eve Columbia University will offer a new course for upperclassmen and grad students next semester. An Occupy Wall Street class will send students into the field and will be taught by Dr. Hannah Appel, a veteran of the Occupy movement.

    The course begins next semester and will be divided between class work at Columbia’sMorningside Heights campus and fieldwork that will require students to become involved with the Occupy movement outside of the classroom.

    The course will be called “Occupy the Field: Global Finance, Inequality, Social Movement” it will be run by the anthropology department....


    Congratulations, Parents! Via outrageous tuition rates, you are being taken to the cleaners for this kind of nonsense.

  7. Pretty good work for third graders.

    Stunning that any opinion contrary to the fringe right mantra is perceived as indoctrination. I guess that comes from believing you are in possession of revealed truth.

    To my friends who are parents, I can only tell you what CSN already has...

  12. My son, who happens to be a 3rd grader and I am sure he would have protested to this garbage. And furthermore, I sincerely doubt any 3rd grader would have composed this idiocy. They are smarter than that.

    No way I would have sat idly by and let my children sing a song or allow liberal indoctrination on my kids.

    This is rubbish.

  13. Just churning out a bunch of lazy lay-abouts who believe they are owed a living.

  14. As the proud father of a third grader, I have to call BS on the claim that they wrote it.

  15. Duck,
    Please! Third graders are not this "sophisticated." I make this statement without reservation. I taught third grade for some 10 years -- GT students, at that.

  16. Okay, I can actually recall songs/poems I wrote as a third grader, and they are nowhere close to that. Third graders are NOT that smart. Besides that, what kid would think up that topic? Kids admire millionaires, and many wish they were rich and famous- and also besides that, the song sounds like its from the perceptive of an ADULT who lost his job and money, and now is a common worker. What kid can write from the perspective of an adult, and why would they? They're kids! They think like kids and have a kid perception of the world, which is far away from reality, and defiantly this kind of song.

    Hypothetically if they did do this, while sick and sad, I'm not sure if anyone besides the parents have the right to say the school CAN'T Do it (parents do though). Though what that woman said about 'religion, profanity...' okay, religion is banned in most schools anyways and profanity DEFIANTLY should be as it is banned in classrooms last time I checked. If not... well, we need to fix that first.

  17. Incredible the way these people insult our intelligence with their fairy tales about honesty, openness, lack of censorship and originality, isn't it?

    Can you imagine the furor that would occur if even only one or two of the children wanted to sing to the world:

    Jesus loves me; this I know
    For the Bible tells me so.
    Little one to Him belong.
    They re weak and He is strong.

    Yes. Jesus loves me!
    Yes Jesus loves me!
    Yes. Jesus loves me.
    The Bible tells me so.


    OR

    Tell me the stories of Jesus I long to hear.
    Things I would ask Him to tell me, if He were here.
    Scenes by the wayside! Scenes by the sea!
    Stories of Jesus! Tell them to me.


    OR

    All things good, all things fair,
    All things beautiful everywhere
    Come to earth from Above
    From Our Father's heart of Love.


    OR -- Heaven forbid!!!

    Onward, Christian Soldiers.

    What a stinking, perverted, mixed up travesty our country has become thanks to the Cultural Marxist dominance in the field of Education.

  19. FreeThinke,
    True story....

    A few years ago, an aging WW2 veteran who saw combat in the Pacific offered to go into one of the elementary schools in Fairfax County, Virginia, to tell a bit of his story and to lead the students (5th graders?) in the Pledge of Allegiance at the end of his presentation. The school forbade this veteran's visit on the grounds that "It will make the students feel uncomfortable to say the Pledge or, as is their right, to opt out of reciting the Pledge." The WW2 veteran, whom I personally know, threw up his hands in disgust and has never again tried to participate in any school activity with his grandchildren.

    The above incident didn't make the paper or the local news. I have the feeling that such incidents go on all over the United States and that we never hear about them.

    I'm sure that the same school that shut out a WW2 veteran would be all in favor of singing any OWS songs.

  21. What i don't get is this - they used to be part of the 1%, but lost it all and are so much happier now in the 99%. So why are they squawking at the 1% again?

    Bloody leftards, totally illogical.
