From the Washington State Legislature:

Anyone else think “internment camp”?

But it can’t happen here. We are “the home of the free and land of the brave”. You keep telling yourself that, then go load your magazines.


Shakopee School Board Chair Kristi Peterson reported Tara, who is a single mother, to her employer for criticizing the actions of Shakopee’s school board members.The mother criticized the way two Shakopee School Board members handled the testimony of the parent of a special needs child and her struggles with masking. In Brooklyn a father has been arrested for “Meancening” when he asked his sons second grade teacher why the boy was not allowed to use the bathroom and sat in his own waste all day. Arrested!! This is happening everywhere parents are fighting back. But it’s not new. I wholly support the parents that are standing up to the teachers and school boards. When my kids were in school, we fought for them. The oldest was junior when she was told she couldn’t wear a “gang related” t-shirt in school. She was wearing a Harley Davidson t-shirt. There was a rather tense meeting. Yes, I rode the bike and parked it in front of the business office. Then a teacher asked my middle daughter to be the class snitch. Teacher and principal were put on notice this wasn’t happening. Teacher decided she would have to speak to us as if we were morons and I didn’t much like her condescending attitude. After expressing my credentials and seeing I had a better education than she did, she shut up. Sorta. And the time the “school security”, a very loose use of the job title, challenged my high school senior son to fight and called him several profane names. This one entailed a meeting with the “guard”, the principal, us parents, and the police. When I rather testily spoke to the guard about his physical and mental status (fat stupid fxxk) the police threatened to arrest me. I told they probably could, but it wouldn’t be for bad language. He, the guard, ended up getting the head of the Department of Education involved, and losing his job. He physically picked a fight with me at sons’ graduation. He lost that one too. I’m lucky, today I’d probably be doing 15 to 20. But I’d still do it. I wholly support these parents, where ever they are.
