Default They're watching SOS

Do you think nobody is monitoring SOS?

Think again. It seems plenty of people besides those opposing illegal immigration monitor the SOS web site.

Check this out: http://www.signalscv.com/section/36/article/135999/

Isn't it interesting that the Santa Clarita Signal make a mention about a post I put on the site.

The rally I organized at Simi Valley wasn't a SOS activity, but they still troll the site to see what's going on...interesting to say the least.

The Signal is sadly behind the curve, and it seems they're now reduced to trolling instead of reporting.

Look at this Politico story, they are also reporting incorrect information.
and look how they characterize SOS...as anti immigrant.

This article is chucked with so many mistakes it looks like a fourth grader did the research.

Man, they don't even bother to do any investigation.

Default Just the same old:

It never changes. Been going on for decades. Left vs right. Liberals vs conservatives.

Around here my local newspaper fell on hard times a few years back and had a big layoff. I cancelled my subscription some time back.


Sad to say the Left/Democrats is/are overrun with people who are blatantly socialist, communist and ideologues.

It has always been that after some time the majority grows tired of the Democrats and Republicans take over. Then They grow tired of Republicans and the turn over happens again.

The Libs are notoriously dishonest and devious. They like to spin.

Every once in a while some reporter gets caught creatively manufacturing "news" than just isn't fact or reality.

Besides extremely poor reporting, it's the public that doesn't seem to care one iota that they're being deceived or lied to. Complacency and ignorance by the public allows those in positions of power to control and manipulate for their own profit.

The public seem to only care if the news is entertaining. Strong direct minds are rare these days.

Since the late 70's lot of it has to do with the schools and parents who abdicate their parental authority to the school system.

A lot of adults might confuse Franklin D. Roosevelt and Benjamin Franklin. Not long ago, I asked a 7 year old what she knew about American presidents. Sounding proud of it, she declared that "Barack Obama is our president". I asked about more, then after some thought she mentioned Abraham Lincoln - "he was a good person who kept bad people from doing bad things to good people". She knew nothing else, not even about George Washington. More recently, there was a newspaper article about a nearby middle school ESL program, an example of the lesson plan had to do with articulating about Martin Luther King and organized protests against injustice.

So, a lot of the kids can't read, write, do arithmetic, nor have any sense of our history and special place among nations when they leave school. But, they will be well versed in societal change and fully primed to vote far left Democrat...

You're exactly correct. But for those that recognize this huge problem, it seems that nothing can be done to stop the spiral downward in education. Those that control the Dept. of Ed. are only concerned with their own comfortable position and increasing their $$$$ both in their pocket and slush fund.

This spiral has been happening for so many years/decades now that it would take something seemingly insurmountable to reverse it. Only those young students with families that care about a good education and are willing to take the task upon themselves seem to have a chance at a decent education; because it sure isn't happening in just about all of our schools today.
