Well, I never have been in favor of the politically correct “Outcome Based Education”, and the leftist agenda that is part and parcel to it. As a matter of fact, I’ve been known to raise quite a stink about it. So, when I heard of this new education plan called “No Child Left Behind”, (current buzz word of all sorts of bureaucrats, from Bush right on down) I just assumed it was more “OBE” nonsense, and shook my head in disgust.
On the surface, it “sounds” like something fairly noble…I guess that should have tipped us off, there’s nothing noble about the u.S government anymore. I really didn’t think about it too much, until last Saturday. When I discovered it is even more disgusting than I had thought.
I went to a meeting of a political action group Saturday, a gentleman there had obtained a copy of the proposed legislation, and buried within this trash bill, is probably the most oppressive, sweeping and absolute gun control ever contemplated. It would require EVERY gun owner to be licensed, EVERY gun to be test fired and a ballistics profile created, it would limit the maximum magazine capacity to 5 rounds! It goes on to provide many millions of dollars for local anti-gun campaigns across the land, and on and on!
All of this hidden deep within an “Education Bill”, obviously designed to fly through Congress “under the radar”, and be signed into law before the people ever knew what hit them. Much like the so-called “Patriot Act”, where congress votes on a bill, without ever knowing what it is they are voting for.
Folks, this is real serious, we need to let people know that they need to contact their congressmen and tell them “We don’t need it, and we won’t have it!” Call, write and email your congressmen, president, newspaper, talk radio show and anyone else you can think of to complain and spread the word. They have gone too far!
They should call it “NO FREEDOM LEFT BEHIND”
