More Government School Bullying

This is yet another example of what happens when parents decide to allow the government to educate indoctrinate their children:
    Bill to Fine Parents for Skipping Teacher Meetings

    (AP) AUSTIN, Texas - Parents in Texas could face a $500 fine and criminal record if they miss a meeting with their child's teacher, if a new bill passes.

    A Republican state lawmaker from Baytown, Texas has filed a bill that would charge parents of public school students with a Class C misdemeanor and fine them for playing hooky from a scheduled parent-teacher conference.

    Excuses are allowed, but be prepared to have a good one. In a state that allows corporal punishment, this could subject parents to a good spanking.

    Rep. Wayne Smith said Wednesday he wants to get parents involved in their child's education.

    "I think it helps the kids for the parents and teachers to communicate. That's all the intent was," Smith said, adding he talked to teachers, including his daughter, who teaches in junior high, before filing the bill.

    "The concept is to get parents in the classroom," he said. ...
This kind of crap has been going on ever since the advent of draconian compulsory education laws.

You know, dads and moms used to tell their kids that if they would just stand up to school bullies, they would be left alone. Bullies don't like it when their victims fight back. I'm still waiting for America's parents to heed their own advice.

Lee,

I'm going to shut down my blog to join a new blog called The Conservative Times started by a few friends of mine I met at the last meeting of the John Randolph Club. The address is www.conservativetimes.org.

Please remove my name from the blogroll and replace with that of the Conservative Times at the address I provided. Thanks.

In fact, come and join us, we can use all the good writers we can get. I just decided running my own blog just wasn't worth my time compared to working together on a bigger project where I feel I could make more of an impact and you will be able to as well.

If not, well, I make sure to have the blog link to yours.

Thanks for the heads-up. Looks like a promising endeavor. I'll make the link change.

And thanks for the invite. I just might take you up on that. Would it be a matter of submitting articles, or is there a login procedure? Feel free to e-mail me with any information.

Thanks again!

Lee, there is a log-in procedure to post articles and I will ask the other writers if you can join our list. Otherwise, there is a weblist to submit written articles and that email address is: conservativetimes_articlesubmit[at]yahoo.com. You can also email news tips and comments at conservativetimes1776[at]yahoo.com
