Another Battle? (War vs. Indoctrination Update)

Yesterday, I published an article about the battle for our kid's minds, free wills, and abilities to think freely and make up their own minds.

It is clear that senior administrators in the so-called public education field are really just comprachicos directing the indoctrination of your children into socialism.

Ironically, yesterday, the US Department of Health & Human Services and the US Department of Education released a statement calling for High Schools to push the falsely named Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), which has been nicknamed "Obamacare". That is right. They directed that classes still in session push the "value" of the legislation and convince students it is a "good thing" without arming the students with the actual facts. I am willing to bet that none of those involved have even read the 2,801 page assault on our paychecks, liberty, and right to our own bodies.

In an official press release, Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius called for mention of the PPACA be added to commencement speeches. They offer "special banners" to be added to college websites. If this travesty is "so good", why do they feel the need to employ the "hard sell" tactics? Why do they omit the CBO reports and GAO reports that outline the costs? The answer is simple. They do not want these kids to know the truth. They want them to be mindless zombies falling into lockstep with Marxist and Marcuse-ian socialism.

This is the latest tax-funded (tax money wasted) propaganda campaign for the PPACA. Senator Ron Portman (R-OH) is still waiting for details on one $20M contract the HHS issued to a PR/Advertising firm to promote the largely disliked bill that most Americans want repealed. 

Ben Shapiro at Breitbart.com makes a great point. What do good little indoctrinated, socialist zombies just graduating from high school do? Well, depending on the state, high school seniors and/or college freshman starting in the fall term will be over 18. So, they vote. In this case, they will be lied to and duped into voting for Obama because he pushed for Obamacare.

I think it's time to put these kids into summer classes at the school of reality. Tell them to try to find a job. If they have difficulty, remind them who's policies have led to over 3 years of over 8% unemployment (by the U3 scale, even higher by the U6 scale). Make them research the CBO and GAO reports. Tell them to get both sides of the issue and make up their own minds. And a great little exercise is to go to the Library of Congress site, use the THOMAS database, and read that 2,801 page set of shackles the socialists want to impose upon them.
