    “I Think? Therefore I Am?” Transgender

    Starting in the fall of 2017, Washington state public schools will begin to teach kindergartners about gender expression

    The bottom line

    SOME KNOWLEDGE IS TOO HEAVY FOR CHILDREN. When they are older and stronger, they can bear it. It would be a pretty poor parent who would ask his kindergartner to carry such a “THINK GENDER” heavy load. For now children must trust their parents to carry it for them.”

    WA STATE PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS AND FAMILIES  MUST DEMAND THE REMOVAL OF THIS COMPLETELY INAPPROPRIATE “COMMON CORE PUBLIC SCHOOL, SEXUAL INDOCTRINATION PROGRAM” AT ANY AGE OR GRADE LEVEL. PERIOD.

    REMEMBER WHEN SCHOOL WAS ALL ABOUT READING, WRITING, AND ARITHMETIC?

    NOT ANYMORE.

    Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, Washington state will teach elementary school students about “gender identity” and “gender expression.”

    In the “Sexual Health” portion of the “Washington State K-12 Learning Standards” packet, teachers are given guidelines for each grade.

     Under a section labeled “Self-Identity,”each grade is to learn the following:

    KINDERGARTEN

    “Understand there are many ways to express gender.“

    FIRST GRADE

    “Explain that there are many ways to express gender.”

    SECOND GRADE

    “Understand there is a range of gender roles and expression,” and “Understand importance of treating others with respect regarding gender expression.”

    THIRD GRADE

    “Explain that gender roles can vary considerably,” and “Understand importance of treating others with respect regarding gender identity.”

    FOURTH GRADE

    “Identify how friends and family can influence ideas regarding gender roles, identity, and expression,” and “Define sexual orientation.”

    FIFTH GRADE

    “Describe how media, society, and culture can influence ideas regarding gender roles, identity, and expression,” and “Identify trusted adults to ask questions about gender identity and sexual orientation.”

    In the “Health Education Glossary,” “biological sex” is defined as:

    “Based on chromosomes, hormones, and internal and external anatomy.”

    While “GENDER” IS DEFINED AS:

    “A SOCIAL CONSTRUCT BASED ON EMOTIONAL, BEHAVIORAL, AND CULTURAL CHARACTERISTICS ATTACHED TO A PERSON’S BIOLOGICAL SEX.”

    FURTHER, GENDER IS BROKEN DOWN INTO THREE SUBCATEGORIES:

    GENDER EXPRESSION: “THE WAY SOMEONE OUTWARDLY EXPRESSES THEIR GENDER.”

    GENDER IDENTITY: “SOMEONE’S INNER SENSE OF THEIR GENDER.”

    GENDER ROLES: “SOCIAL EXPECTATIONS ABOUT HOW PEOPLE SHOULD ACT, THINK, OR FEEL BASED ON THEIR ASSIGNED BIOLOGICAL SEX.”

    The Daily Caller spoke with NATHAN OLSON, A COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER FOR THE STATEWIDE OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION (OSPI). HE CLAIMED THE STANDARDS WEREN’T AN IMPOSITION OF BELIEF SYSTEMS:

    “Standards help students become familiar with concepts that education experts feel are essential for all students to know. Standards are not used to impose belief systems.”

    However, when DC asked OLSON IF STUDENTS WHO “[REJECT] THE IDEA THAT GENDER IDENTITY IS DISTINCT FROM BIOLOGICAL SEX” COULD SUFFER ACADEMICALLY,

     OLSON PIVOTED, SAYING SUCH ISSUES WOULD BE HANDLED AT A LOCAL LEVEL.

     HE THEN ADDED:

    “We don’t exactly know what a school would do if a student failed to complete an assignment because he/she opposed the materials being taught.”

    Washington state’s decision has troubled many conservatives:

    I removed …offensive comments by  promoters of this agenda.

    THIS IS INDOCTRINATION.

    ——————————————————————————-

     INDEED, Some knowledge is too heavy for children.

    (I found this quotation online)

    “And so seated next to my father in the train compartment, I suddenly asked, “Father, what is sexsin?”
    He turned to look at me, as he always did when answering a question, but to my surprise he said nothing. At last he stood up, lifted his traveling case off the floor and set it on the floor.
    Will you carry it off the train, Corrie?” he said.
    I stood up and tugged at it. It was crammed with the watches and spare parts he had purchased that morning.
    It’s too heavy,” I said.
    Yes,” he said, “and it would be a pretty poor father who would ask his little girl to carry such a load. It’s the same way, Corrie, with knowledge. Some knowledge is too heavy for children. When you are older and stronger, you can bear it. For now you must trust me to carry it for you.”

    ——————————————————————

    THE POWER OF SUGGESTION?

    Suggestion is the psychological process by which one person guides the thoughts, feelings, or behavior of  another.

    NOTE: The power of suggestion must involve at least two people

    LIKE A WA STATE PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER TEACHING TRANSGENDER TO AN IMPRESSIONABLE FIVE YEAR OLD KINDERGARTNER

    Aim: to investigate whether people have self-serving attributions, and why they do it?

    —————————————————————-

    Self-Fulfilling Prophecy:

    NOTE: Self-fulfilling prophecies must involve at least two people

    Aim: to investigate whether people have self-serving attributions, and why they do it?

    Process by which one’s expectations about another person eventually lead the other person to behave in ways that confirm these expectations

    Self-Fulfilling Prophecy DefinitionSelf-fulfilling prophecy is defined as any expectation, positive or negative, about a situation or event that affects an individual behavior in such a manner that it causes that expectation to be fulfilled.

    Example of self-fulfilling prophecy

    The bottom line

    SOME KNOWLEDGE IS TOO HEAVY FOR CHILDREN. When they are older and stronger, they can bear it. It would be a pretty poor parent who would ask his kindergartner to carry such a “THINK GENDER” heavy load. For now children must trust their parents to carry it for them.”

    WA STATE PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS AND FAMILIES  MUST DEMAND THE REMOVAL OF THIS COMPLETELY INAPPROPRIATE “COMMON CORE PUBLIC SCHOOL, SEXUAL INDOCTRINATION PROGRAM” AT ANY AGE OR GRADE LEVEL. PERIOD.

    The Silent Majority Defined 1933-1968-2016

    THE “SILENT MAJORITY,” IS A PHRASE WITH A LONG, LONG HISTORY

    IN 2016 THE HISTORY AND ORIGIN OF THE”SILENT MAJORITY” MUST BE DEFINED AND MADE PERFECTLY CLEAR.

    (for those that think it just started 45 years ago)

    ———————————————-
    Defining words on Germany’s SILENT MAJORITY

    “WHEN THEY CAME I DID NOT SPEAK”

    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a trade unionist; Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jew; Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak out for me.
    —————————————————————————————-
    DEFINING THE HOLOCAUST

    The Holocaust began in 1933 and ended in 1945 12 years of Antisemitism (also spelled anti-Semitism or anti-semitism) is PREJUDICE AGAINST, HATRED OF, OR DISCRIMINATION AGAINST JEWS AS AN ETHNIC, RELIGIOUS, OR RACIAL GROUP.

    11 million people were killed during the Holocaust (1.1 million children )
    6 MILLION OF THOSE VICTIMS WERE JEWISH.

    PREJUDICE AGAINST, HATRED OF, OR DISCRIMINATION AGAINST OTHER GROUPS targeted by the Nazis were Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, disabled people, and Roma.

    “WHEN THEY CAME I DID NOT SPEAK” for the record let’s add…

    Then they came for the Jehovah’s Witnesses and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jehovah’s Witnesses – Then they came for the homosexuals and I did not speak out – because I was not a homosexual – Then they came for the disabled people and I did not speak out – because I was not a disabled person – Then they came for Roma and I did not speak out – because I was not a Roma –

    TWO-THIRDS OF JEWISH PEOPLE living in Europe at the time of World War II were killed by ANTISEMITISM …..

    11 million people were killed during the Holocaust (1.1 million children )
    6 MILLION OF THOSE VICTIMS WERE JEWISH,
    5 MILLION OF THOSE VICTIMS targeted by the Nazis ,were other groups of people, prejudiced against, hatred of, or discrimination against.

    TODAY Niemöller’s words “ON THE SILENT MAJORITY” have meaning.

    THEY ARE OFTEN ALTERED TO FIT DIFFERING POLITICAL OR SOCIAL AGENDA,

    BUT THEY STAND AS A UNIVERSAL CALL FOR SOCIAL ACTION AND SOLIDARITY AND VIGILANCE IN THE FACE OF OPPRESSION AND INJUSTICE.
    ————————————————————————————–

    INDEED, IN 2016, IT IS NECESSARY TO INVESTIGATE THE POLITICAL OR DIFFERING SOCIAL AGENDA’S THAT  ARE REFERRED  TO UNDER THE “SILENT MAJORITY”

    NOW THAT WE HAVE ESTABLISHED THE ORIGIN OF THE “SILENT MAJORITY” WE MUST DOCUMENT AND ENLIGHTEN AMERICAN CITIZENS ON  THE SIMILARITIES OF THE USAGE OF THE WORDS “SILENT MAJORITY” IN THE POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS IN NIXON’S 1968 AND TRUMP’S IN 2016.
    —————————————————————————————
    1968-1972 Richard Nixon campaigned on A SILENT MAJORITY PLATFORM
    NIXON CAMPAIGNED ON A PLATFORM DESIGNED TO REACH THE “SILENT MAJORITY” of middle class and working class Americans. He promised to “bring us together again,” and many Americans, weary after years of antiwar and civil rights protests, were happy to hear of peace returning to their streets.

    DONALD TRUMP IS CAMPAIGNING ON A PLATFORM DESIGNED TO REACH THE “SILENT MAJORITY” of middle class and working class Americans. The Donald promises to “bring us together again,” and many Americans, weary after years of antiwar and civil rights protests, are happy at the prospect of peace returning to their streets.
    ——————————————————————————
    NIXON CAMPAIGNED ON FOREIGN POLICY WAS ALSO A MAJOR FACTOR IN THE ELECTION. Humphrey was saddled with a Democratic foreign policy that led to what appeared to be absolute futility and agony in Vietnam. NIXON PROMISED TO FIND A WAY TO “PEACE WITH HONOR” IN VIETNAM, though Nixon was never entirely clear about how this was to be accomplished.
    ———————————————————————————
    2016 TRUMP campaign IS ON FOREIGN POLICY WHICH IS A MAJOR FACTOR IN THE ELECTION. AMERICA IS CURRENTLY saddled with a Democratic foreign policy that led to the absolute futility FOURTEEN YEARS OF WAR AND CONFLICT IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
    Trump has promised to find a way to “peace with honor” in the middle east, AND THE DONALD IS PERFECTLY AND ENTIRELY CLEAR ON HOW THIS IS TO BE ACCOMPLISHED.

    C. To Further Reduce the Nuclear Threat:
    Stocks of nuclear weapons shall be progressively reduced to the minimum levels which can be agreed upon as a result of the findings of the nuclear Experts Commission; the resulting excess of fissionable material shall be transferred to peaceful purposes.
    D. To Further Reduce Strategic Nuclear Weapons Delivery Vehicles:
    Further reductions in the stocks of strategic nuclear weapons delivery vehicles and agreed types of weapons designed to counter such vehicles shall be carried out in accordance with the procedure outlined in Stage I.
    E. To Keep the Peace:
    During Stage II, states shall develop further the peace-keeping processes of the united Nations, to the end that the United Nations can effectively in Stage III deter or suppress any threat or use of force in violation of the purposes and principles of the united Nations:
    (a) States shall agree upon strengthening the structure, authority, and operation of the united Nations so as to assure that the United Nations will be able effectively to protect states against threats to or breaches of the peace.
    (b) The U.N. Peace Force shall be established and progressively strengthened.
    (c) States shall also agree upon further improvements and developments in rules of international conduct and in processes for peaceful settlement of disputes and differences.
    STAGE III
    By the time Stage II has been completed, the confidence produced through a verified disarmament program, the acceptance of rules of peaceful international behavior, and the development of strengthened international peace-keeping processes within the framework of the U.N. should have reached a point where the states of the world can move forward to Stage III. In Stage III progressive controlled disarmament and continuously developing principles and procedures of international law would proceed to a point where no state would have the military power to challenge the progressively strengthened U.N. Peace Force (emphasis added) and all international disputes would be settled according to the agreed principles of international conduct.
    The progressive steps to be taken during the final phase of the disarmament program would be directed toward the attainment of a world in which:
    (a) States would retain only those forces, non-nuclear armaments, and establishments required for the purpose of maintaining internal order; they would also support and provide agreed manpower for a U.N. Peace Force.
    (b) The U.N. Peace Force, equipped with agreed types and quantities of armaments, would be fully functioning.
    (c) The manufacture of armaments would be prohibited except for those of agreed types and quantities to be used by the U.N. Peace Force and those required to maintain internal order. All other armaments would be destroyed or converted to peaceful purposes.
    (d) The peace-keeping capabilities of the United Nations would be sufficiently strong and the obligations of all states under such arrangements sufficiently far-reaching as to assure peace and the just settlement of differences in a disarmed world.

    According to Dr. Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, people with transgender feelings experience psychological distress because they suffer from “body dysmorphic disorder”: just like someone suffering from bulimia wrongly believes she is fat, so a person with transgender feelings wrongly thinks he or she is a sex that doesn’t correspond to reality.McHugh says most of those who elect to have sex-reassignment surgery describe themselves as “satisfied.”

    However, studies found that “their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn’t have surgery.”

    As a result, Johns Hopkins Hospital has stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery. As McHugh puts it, “producing a ‘satisfied’ but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs.”

    Instead, McHugh says, diversity counselors function much like “cult leaders,” often encouraging these confused young people to distance themselves from family and anyone who challenges the legitimacy of their feelings.

    The Gender Agenda – Coming to a School Near You! | Julie …

    Four years ago, if you had predicted that the end-game of the LGBTQ community was to destroy all gender and sexual boundaries, many would have labeled you an extremist on a witch hunt. I know because I made that prediction. And, in response, I received many angry denials from members of a local high school’s Gay Straight Alliance (GSA). “You seem to believe that the LGBTQ movement wants to spark a gender-reformation. How could one reform a biologically accurate thing? Well, it’s not possible…” Another wrote: “The Gay Straight Alliances have done nothing of the sort… They merely have decided… to show that there are so many beautiful people out there that society has not tolerated for the longest of time.” However, two articles published about a week ago in a suburban Chicago high school newspaper show that’s precisely the LGBTQ movement’s intent. The articles appeared in the Statesman, the tax-payer funded student newspaper of Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire, Illinois, where my husband teaches math. One article entitled, “How vast is the gender spectrum?” argued that limiting gender to male and female is too restrictive. “Nothing is written in black or white,” the article asserted. “In fact, the world is filled with many gray areas. Nowadays, our gender identity is not restricted to two choices: boy or girl.” This is a shocking statement given that Genesis – the foundation for two major world religions – states very clearly in black and white that only two genders exist. Genesis 1:27 states, “God created mankind in his own image… male and female he created them.” Other religions affirm this understanding, as well. In fact, it’s been the established societal view since the beginning of human history. But, in one fell swoop, this article declared this age-old, religious understanding obsolete. And, it asserted this falsehood, not as opinion with attribution, but as fact! A second article in the Statesman further deconstructed traditional and religious sexual mores. When identifying their “sexual orientation,” it encouraged students to think beyond sexual stereotypes – not just heterosexual ones, but homosexual ones too. “I think there are infinite sexual orientations,” a Stevenson student named Cameron said. “There are so many labels. It’s impossible to number them…” Wow. “Infinite sexual orientations”? In my wildest imagination, I could maybe come up with several dozen, but infinite? And, what about the moral legitimacy of these orientations? Cameron went on to say, “There is nothing wrong with however you are. If you like boys, girls, anyone in between, or none of the above, that’s okay.” Seriously? All these infinite orientations are morally acceptable? Is this what they’re teaching students these days? What if you’re attracted to animals? A family member? The dead? (Yes, it exists. It’s called necrophilia.) One has to wonder where students get these ideas. Perhaps, it’s from English teachers like William Fritz, also the GSA faculty advisor. In the article on gender spectrum, he says, “The gender of the person you truly are can be different from (your physical features). We are not a one size fits all species.” One has to wonder how this English teacher came to this epiphany. He offered no evidence to support his claim. In fact, neither article presented any evidence for their wild assertions. They didn’t offer any dissenting opinions either. Instead, they relied solely on LGBTQ activists and their disciples – Mr. Fritz; a staff person with the national GSA; a 17-year-old “gender studies” blogger; and high school students, presumably members of the school’s GSA. Apparently, LGBTQ activists at public schools are getting bolder – and school administrators are affording them special privilege to proselytize openly. Certainly, if a Christian would try to distribute literature at Stevenson explaining the biblical understanding of gender, the administration would immediately shut him down. Yet, here gay activists are given carte blanche to spread their propaganda right in the school-sponsored newspaper! One of the people quoted repeatedly in the article on the gender spectrum is teenage blogger Kathryn Tenbarge. “To break free from conforming stereotypes is a very courageous thing to do,” Tenbarge said. “It means you have reached a level of understanding yourself that most people haven’t.” Really? So, those of us with a Judeo-Christian understanding of sexuality are simply unenlightened? The article concludes, “For now, Fritz, (another student) and Tenbarge agree there is nothing to lose from expanding the strict labels and categories our society tries to squeeze everyone into.” Again, this is just another wild assertion without any basis in fact. With all due respect, how can these self-appointed gender experts know this? To date, the traditional family model has served as the foundation for all Western Civilization. Though many today express disdain for this great civilization, one can’t deny that it’s produced some of the most prosperous and stable societies the world has ever known. But, now we are moving into new territory with unpredictable results. Yet, early indications show that this anything-goes sexuality may have devastating consequences. One woman whose husband left her for his gay lover, and took their children with him, writes in Public Discourse: “Behind the happy façade of many families headed by same-sex couples, we see relationships that are built from brokenness…. I represent hundreds upon thousands of spouses who have been betrayed and rejected.” This is tragic and certainly will have widespread ramifications for the children raised in these devastated homes. But, this is what results when one’s attractions du jour trump marriage vows. The author of the article also notes that “Every same-sex family can only exist by manipulating nature.” Unlike traditional marriage, which naturally produces children, same-sex couples must rely on “assisted reproductive technologies such as surrogacy or sperm donation to have children. Such processes exploit men and women for their reproductive potential, treat children as products to be bought and sold, and purposely deny children a relationship with one or both of their biological parents.” Again tragically, it’s children who suffer.

    But what about transgendered people? How is expanding the “gender spectrum” working for them?

    According to a study conducted by the National Center for Transgender Equality and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, it’s not going well. The study found that a staggering 41 percent of transgendered people say they’ve attempted suicide. And apparently, permanently changing their sex doesn’t help either.

    A 2011 Swedish study found that people who undergo sex-change surgery start experiencing increased mental difficulties about 10 years after surgery. In fact, their suicide mortality then rises to almost 20 times greater than the comparable non-transgender population!

    A case in point is a Belgian woman who underwent sex reassignment surgery and then last year chose to be euthanized.

    Apparently, the self-hatred that drove her to become a man persisted after her sex change. Just like she couldn’t accept herself as a woman, she couldn’t accept herself as a man, either. “(N)one of these operations worked as desired,” Nathan (born Nancy) Verhelst said. “(W)hen I looked in the mirror, I was disgusted with myself. My new breasts did not match my expectations and my new penis had symptoms of rejection. I do not want to be… a monster. ”

    According to Dr. Paul McHugh, former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital, people with transgender feelings experience psychological distress because they suffer from “body dysmorphic disorder”: just like someone suffering from bulimia wrongly believes she is fat, so a person with transgender feelings wrongly thinks he or she is a sex that doesn’t correspond to reality.

    McHugh says most of those who elect to have sex-reassignment surgery describe themselves as “satisfied.”

    However, studies found that “their subsequent psycho-social adjustments were no better than those who didn’t have surgery.” As a result, Johns Hopkins Hospital has stopped doing sex-reassignment surgery. As McHugh puts it, “producing a ‘satisfied’ but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs.” Interestingly, McHugh reports that controlled and follow-up studies show that 70-80 percent of children with transgender feelings spontaneously lose those feelings as they mature. School counselors should be challenging these students’ false beliefs about themselves. Instead, McHugh says, diversity counselors function much like “cult leaders,” often encouraging these confused young people to distance themselves from family and anyone who challenges the legitimacy of their feelings. So, our public high schools, by promoting this unproven gender-bending agenda may actually be hurting those they purport to help.

    Perhaps, this is because the reality that billions throughout the centuries have affirmed is actually true! We do not construct ourselves; God constructs us. And, when our confusion and brokenness leads us to deny our God¬-given gender, we only harm ourselves and those closest to us. Instead of encouraging students to pursue whatever feels right to them, maybe administrators and faculty advisors should be urging them to love and accept the person God created them to be? Unfortunately, students in many of our public schools never hear this common sense, Judeo-Christian view. As these student articles show, it’s simply presumed false or too restrictive. You may think this is happening in only liberal suburban Chicago schools, but it’s everywhere. For example, just last week, the media reported that school administrators in Lincoln, Nebraska – hardly a hotbed of liberalism – instructed teachers to no longer use “gendered expressions” such as “boys and girls.” Instead, they told them to use “gender inclusive” terms like “purple penguins.” Seriously – purple penguins! Now that this radical, gender-destroying agenda of the LGBTQ community has been revealed, how should we respond? Do Christians retreat and allow the radicals to distort children’s understanding of their dignity, purpose and God¬-given gender? Do we let high school administrators define our boys and girls as “purple penguins” – and use our taxes to promote propaganda?

    the bottom line…

    Or, do we say enough is enough – and begin reasserting our voice in this society gone crazy? Our children’s future is at stake.

  • Coerced by Federal Bathroom Laws?

    Basic Federal Education and Bathroom Laws

    The feds — specifically, the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights — insist that drawing any distinction is sexual discrimination banned by Title IX of the basic federal education law. “The district continues to deny a (self identified?) female student the right to use the girls’ locker room,” charges Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon.

    Uncle Sam’s insane push for transgender rights in school locker rooms

    By Post Editorial Board
    November 3, 2015 | 8:41pm
    Talk about lunatic overreach: The federal Education Department is bullying high schools across America to treat “trans” teens exactly as the sex they “identify” as — all the way up to using the same locker rooms and showers.
    Many schools have knuckled under, since the feds can withhold significant cash if they don’t. But one Illinois district is refusing to go along.
    Mind you, the Palatine, Ill., high school already lets the teen in question play on a girls’ sports team and even change in the same room, but in a curtained-off area. Staff refer to the student as “she,” and so on.
    The feds — specifically, the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights — insist that drawing any distinction is sexual discrimination banned by Title IX of the basic federal education law. “The district continues to deny a female student the right to use the girls’ locker room,” charges Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon.
    The feds have given the school 30 days to comply, or face enforcement action.
    Insanity squared:
    This railroads over other students’ privacy rights. However the kid in question “identifies,” that doesn’t change the reality of what others see in that locker room.
    Federal bureaucrats have no business rewriting the law to deny that reality. Nothing in US law suggests these “trans” rights, and no one could possibly believe Congress ever intended to create them.
    Cultural “progressives” have embraced the transgender-rights agenda, but the public hasn’t. Yes, Americans today are more willing to play along with “I identify as” — but not to the point of pretending sexual organs don’t exist.
    Look: The school has gone the extra mile to be accepting. (Is it fair to other players to let a biological male compete in a woman’s sport?) It’s just showing some respect for the views of other students — and their parents.
    The real offender here is the feds, by sending a strong and demeaning message to the rest of those girl athletes: Your privacy and your opinions don’t matter at all.

    The Fox & the Grapes
    A Fox one day spied a beautiful bunch of ripe grapes hanging from a vine trained along the branches of a tree. The grapes seemed ready to burst with juice, and the Fox’s mouth watered as he gazed longingly at them.
    The bunch hung from a high branch, and the Fox had to jump for it. The first time he jumped he missed it by a long way. So he walked off a short distance and took a running leap at it, only to fall short once more. Again and again he tried, but in vain.
    Now he sat down and looked at the grapes in disgust.
    “What a fool I am,” he said. “Here I am wearing myself out to get a bunch of sour grapes that are not worth gaping for.”
    And off he walked very, very scornfully.
    There are many who pretend to despise and belittle that which is beyond their reach.
    ————————————————————————————–
    “THE FOX AND THE GRAPES”
    A classic illustration of cognitive dissonance is expressed in the fable “The Fox and the Grapes” by Aesop (ca. 620–564 BCE). In the story, a fox sees some high-hanging grapes and wishes to eat them. When the fox is unable to think of a way to reach them, he decides that the grapes are probably not worth eating, with the justification the grapes probably are not ripe or that they are sour (hence the common phrase “sour grapes”).

    The moral that accompanies the story is

    “Any fool can despise what he can not get”.
    This example follows a pattern: one desires something, finds it unattainable, and reduces one’s dissonance by criticizing it. Jon Elster calls this pattern “adaptive preference formation”.[18]

    Large crowd protests Navy electronic warfare training plan at PA forum

    Many in the crowd grew upset when they learned the forum was not being recorded and the questions would not be used as part of the comments on the proposal. Instead, officials said questions and comments have to be submitted in writing through the formal comment process.

    Are the Feds just allowing them to blow off steam?

    I sent this comment to friends…

    Good job FOR A LOCAL PROTEST.

    HOWEVER….This is a FEDERAL OFFENSE.

    CITIZENS MUST GO TO THEIR FEDERALLY ELECTED TO BE EFFECTIVE.

    I did not attend….

    Thanks for the update.

    November 7th, 2014 – 6:15am

    (Port Angeles) – More than a hundred people crammed the Port Angeles city council chambers last night, most protesting the Navy’s plans for electromagnetic warfare training over the west end of the Olympic Peninsula.

    The US Forest Service is considering a permit that would allow the Navy to place radio frequency emitters on mobile trucks in the Olympic National Forest. Forest Service and Navy officials held a public forum on the plan last night. But most of the those attending were strongly opposed, often interrupting the presenters. Every person asking questions was against the idea, echoing previous concerns about the effect of RF in the forest areas.

    The U.S. Pacific Fleet’s Northwest environmental program manager John Mosher says his agency’s environmental assessment for the permit shows it’s safe.

    But many of those asking questions disagreed and asked if current data was used in the study. Questions also covered the amount of noise expected by the increased training. Navy officials say the planes will fly at altitudes higher than 10-thousand feet and there will be no more than a 10 percent increase in activity. Some asked why the Navy doesn’t use an established training area. Navy officials say that would be costly and they area already doing training in this area.

    Many in the crowd grew upset when they learned the forum was not being recorded and the questions would not be used as part of the comments on the proposal. Instead, officials said questions and comments have to be submitted in writing through the formal comment process. The Forest Service is keeping that comment period open until November 28th.

    Please don’t allow your people to protest in vein…

  • John Stossel EPA – “The Green Monster”

     John Stossel’s  EPA the “GREEN MONSTER”  

    August 31,  2014  John’s Fox News show  on the EPA “GREEN MONSTER” aired  in my area on 

    EPA should mean “Enough Protection Already”

    ——————————————————————

    Stossel: End the EPA

    Its responsibilities should be handed over to the states

    which are both closer to the problems and more immediately responsible to their electorates

    GIVE “STATE’S SOVEREIGNTY” BACK TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

    AMEN…

    Let American’s citizens VOTE on it.   ALL IN FAVOR  SAY “”AYE”

    Wyoming welder faces $75,000 a day in EPA fines for building pond on his property.

    GET OFF MY LAWN: The EPA cares very little for what is “private property.” They said a farmer in Wyoming violated the Clean Water Act simply because he built a pond on his land. He even had a permit from the state! Why don’t they pick on someone their own size?

     August 31,  2014 UPDATE… John’s Fox News show

    EPA FINE JUMPS TO $186,000 a day for building pond on his property.

    Is this what it takes to get MEDIA ATTENTION on the EPA?

    Or? does it just take John over two years to DOCUMENT and dig up the DIRT ON THE EPA?

    —————————————————————————

    I was delighted with John Stossel for going after the EPA “GREEN MONSTER“!

    BUT? After listening to the show and reading tons of related reports?

    Andy Johnson, the Wyoming welder, had  LEGAL PERMITS FROM THE STATE OF WYOMING TO BUILD HIS POND?

    WHY IS “STATE SOVEREIGNTY” LEFT OUT OF FOX NEWS  REPORTS?

    —————————————————————————-

    Replacing the Environmental Protection Agency

    THIS IS AS CLOSE AS IT GETS TO MENTIONING  CONGRESSIONAL  REENACTMENT OF   “STATE SOVEREIGNTY” .

    TO ALLOW THE STATES? WOULD GIVE THE  STATES?

    WOULD GIVE STATES ATTITUDE TO ACT?- EACH STATE WOULD BE FUNDED?

    NICE LITTLE WORDS, ALLOW, WOULD, WOULD, WOULD….

    http://heartland.org/policy-documents/replacing-environmental-protection-agency

    A relatively small (EPA) administrative structure would be needed to allow THE STATES  to refine existing environmental laws in a manner more suitable to the primary requirement of protecting our environment without thwarting national progress in industry and the development of our natural resources and energy supplies.

    Many regulations would give STATES atitude to act, and others would be required of all states by a two-thirds vote of the Committee of the Whole. Each STATE  would be funded sufficiently to increase its staff to include people whose primary jobs would be to serve on subcommittees of the Committee of the Whole overseeing the issues previously overseen by the current EPA.

    Thank God for John Stossel…

    It took  him over two years

    BUT,  he finally went after the EPA!

    My question to John, Have you considered a program on the “EPA Controlled Everything”?

    The EPA controlled list A to Z is available on line.

    John,

    I loved your “Illegal Everything” and
    “EPA is killing people”

    Have you considered a program on the “EPA Controlled Everything”
    The EPA controlled list A to Z is available on line.

    You like to “Poke Fun” at ridiculous things! You could have a field day with things like, “Fugitive Road Dust” (better left to Homeland Security?)

    Have you done a show on the EPA affect on Logging and wood mills that EPA has shut down?

    The timber that is harvested in Clallam County WA goes to the Port Of Port Angeles and is exported to foreign countries for processing, manufacturing and then sent back to the USA as finished products for sale to American consumers.

    Have you done a show on the EPA affect of the Shoreline Management Act, that takes, restricts and controls all development of private property and business?

    The US economy will never recover under the control of the EPA.

    I look forward to your programs.
