No Taxation without Education…

In the aftermath of the University of California at San Diego terrorist concern, “noose-gate”, the state of California has more than one problem with its institutions of higher learning.The students across the state of California, in a grand show of solidarity, began to hit the streets to protest a 33 percent increase in tuition. In the same state the spawned the protests of the sixties, and gave birth to the west coast office of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense, working class and poor college students are once again being called upon to defend human needs from human’s greed. Today is a Day of Action to Defend Public Education.

As the president of the United States, Barack Obama laments the need for productivity and the need for higher education, his words sink like human excrement to the ground as those of us who are actually attempting to walk the path of the intellectual are being bombarded with impossible colleges prices. Students are expected to study hard enough to make 4.0’s while working two jobs, and many taking care of other responsibilities besides themselves. The price of education continues to rise, while the value of the bachelor degree and master degree are losing traction. The well to do are once again given an advantage in this country while the working class is being forced into substantial debt attempting to live the American Dream.

Where is the advantage of this? What has the value of the US taxpayer’s dollar become? Where is the Robin Hood of this era to take from the rich and give to the poor, the same way that the government has taken from everybody else and given it all to the bankers and corporations? While Maddoff is sitting in federal prison, the predatorial lenders are still flying private jets sipping chilled glasses of Sherry. I guess it isn’t what you do, but who you do it to.

No taxation without representation. Where is the representation for those students across the country out tonight forced to represent them? Where is the education president at? Where is the country of democracy on this issue of educating the masses in order to have an informed public?

I want to give a special mention to all the protesters who have gone out to demonstrate the evils that men do in this country. Who have bonded together in civil demonstration, to plea to the world, “Why are they being fleeced of their pursuit of happiness?”

To those three who were arrested outside Hunter College…

To those five who were arrested in California outside of the Capitol for protesting the budget cuts…

To those students who attempted to take the seventh-floor of Hunter…

To those students who walked out of class at the New School and New York University…

To the students who hit the streets to voice the pain of a dream being deferred by the bottom line, at over 100 California colleges campus…

To all the students around the world, but especially those who are standing strong to protect our duty to be educated as the president of the United States might say…

YOU HAVE MY UTMOST RESPECT. I AM HONORED TO SEE THIS DAY…

Thank you for reminding me….

Aluta Continua…

Elite Education or education for the elites?

The social contract is taken for granted. You are born into
citizenship like american blacks were born into slavery, and now many poverty. There was no
choice in that matter. The minute one comes out of the womb in this
country, and the doctor smacks their bottom, and pink or blue blankets
are ruffled through-the socialization process has begun.
Due to the tacit nature of the social contract, the education system
of the US hurts its agenda. I believe that Barack Obama, in his
elitist thinking has failed to understand that much of the money that
flows through the black community is driven by the current of black
businessmen who dropped out of high school. That seems to be possibly
the very reason they were able to do it:their socialization wasn’t
completely channeled through a process that makes people conform to
the criteria of a class based economic system.

What Obama is really saying when he speaks to his room of elites, but
country of undereducated, when refering to “dropouts” in his
paternalistic “they live shattered lives”, is that they live outside
of the system. Obama mentions that these “dropouts” live on government
assistance, and Obama is one of the architects of the bailout, where
the college educated rich who robbed and shattered not only the lives
of the middle class, but the country itself- where given government
assistance. And still are.

What Obama wants and the rich in general, is to produce more workers.
More workers makes the corporations stronger. The education system is
apart of a social contract, that many of sign just by being born in
this land. A social contract that asks you to pay taxes, but schools
that don’t teach students how to file their own taxes without the aid
of digital applications or H&R Block. A social contract that states
that you have to support the government financially, but you aren’t
allowed full transperancy of military acts, yet you can be wire
tapped. A social contract that states that ignorance of the law is no
defense, yet high schools don’t require more than a civics class,
nothing that delves deeply into the true nature of law and what
precedences have been set.

I am pleased the President has set his sights on education, and has helped to provide over 43,000 new jobs in that field. However, I pray that he understands that a high school diploma has lost much of its value, and many have found self-sufficiency without it. If we truly want to improve the knowledge base of the country, we would either finance Harvard educations for everyone who seeks one, or extend high school educations to include a college level curriculum in all public high schools. I am for extended week schools, even reducing the time spent away from school during the summer time. I would also support extending public education past the senior of high school, possibly making it two to three years longer.

We hold the taxpayers and hard working citizens of the country accountable to a social contract that imposes responsibilities that many have not been prepared for. In this present social contract, those citizens are led by members of society who stigmatize them based on elitist standards. The elected leaders of the hard working use the tax money to finance the very corporations and institutions that make it difficult for the working class to achieve those same said standards. Many in this country are high school dropouts and are able to provide, and sometimes have to dropout in order to provide.

Please, Mr. President, get real. Change the system, stop playing the same blame game as all of your predecessors played…

American White Terrorist Threat SEVERE…

While perusing the morning’s bits and digits on the various sources of information I use to keep abreast of the current flow of national and international events -simply put, I was reading my iGoogle page- I came across the story of the strong students on the campus of the University of California San Diego. These students were terrorized by the startling discovery of a noose laying on a library table. The student’s Black Student Union organized hundreds of fellow colleagues and called for the university to be shut down. The righteously indignant warriors of social change held down the fort of the college’s chancellor’s office for an outstanding 6 hours(source here). Unfortunately, the student’s organized and civil display of unrest with what would be that campus’ third outrageous sentiment of racial terrorism would only be rewarded with a suspension of the female white(American) terrorist from the campus( source here).

 

For those of you who have been following this blog and those of you who know me a little more personally, I used to be mister fuck college, and mister college ain’t teaching me shit. Pardon my United States of American. These days of course I can always be found either defending my reason for attending and pursuing further degrees, or encouraging others to make the jump. As a college advocate, I am extremely disturbed by this slap on the wrist. A noose is not a political statement that should be protected by the US Constitution. It should immediately alarm the campus that something dreadfully dangerous could happen, and the local authorities should be called in to investigate, not campus police. No disrespect to public safety officers on campus’ across the land, but I mean charges of terrorism should be filed.

 

As your President Barack Obama fills my ears with his sugary words of education and his commentary of how high-school dropouts live shattered lives, I’m wondering how people of campus terrorism and trauma will live. The schools of the USA are shattered already, Mr. Obama. You can’t buy a decent education without worrying about a high-strung professor killing you, some guy with social disorders shooting you, or finding a damn noose on a library table. In the American Black community, children are herded through metal detectors and yet there are more cases of white mass homicidal attacks and suicides than in most urban school yards. I’m glad that over 41,000 education jobs have been created from the stimulus money, but I hope those educators and members of the operations of schools live to enjoy a healthy career.

 

While I am profoundly grateful for the students who have contributed to black history while the dumb cow on CNN keeps mentioning that they “should be celebrating black history..”(white folks…I promise y’all, figure it out…the next crew is being raised by the educated, the enlightened,the and war scarred…). Obviously, America has failed to realize that their terroristic behaviors are atavistic, and need to be monitored, and the history of the American shows a pattern of behavior that is remarkably savage in light of their great contributions to technology. The inability to defer anger and murder/suicide is a dangerous cultural paradigm and should never be taken lightly by anyone who finds themselves surrounded by Americans. I would would raise the American White Terrorist level to red, but there has never been anything but a severe risk of terrorist attacks from the American white since Columbus the Killer arrived.

 

 

While this country is trying to make “Fat” the new “nigga”, Americans are still, as always, the old terrorists.
