Excerpts from a recent letter sent by Leland Public Schools Superintendent Stephanie Long.
Guess supporting BLM is ok while supporting Trump in a tweet gets you shitcanned.
This whole scenario is beyond disgusting... not to mention frightening. I taught in public school for 6 years and transitioned to a private boarding school for 15 years. I could not teach now because I believe in rigor , discipline and accountability , respecting the office of the President and the Constitution. It is sad because I loved my job. I left to raise kids with all intention of returning, but stories like this keep people like me from going into the profession or going back. That is their intention , right? The Marxist have moved into our schools and churches like a cancer. It is hard not to get really really down about the current state of affairs.
I often ask myself what I can do to help stand up.? Not much without being attacked or cancelled. If you need proof of that just read the last feed I was on when I dared to mention God! Ha! You could hear the Leftist's head explode.
So... let us all share links etc to encourage Patriots to spread some good cheer and news so that maybe we can change of few minds and wake a few people up. Here are mine for the week...
Google The WALK AWAY campaign and watch some of the videos. Some of them made me tear up with the abuse that is going on from the far leftist radicals. Please share the site with as many people as you can.
Watch the Tommy Shaw (Sing for the Day) videos and share with as many people as you can. The Blue Collar Man and Angry Young Man videos made me yearn for the carefree 80's , but made me realize how timely Styx lyrics are. I shared the videos with my teenage son and he was blown away. Perhaps Trump should use these two videos to help rally the voters? Tommy Shaw is amazing at 64. Wow!
What is crazy is that in those videos, shot just two years ago, there are extremely talented teenagers singing and playing in an orchestra about good old fashioned American values. Watch these before the Marxists take them down.
Share share share... it's the only defense we have against the impending march of the leftest mob.
God Bless you and God Bless the United States of America!
Well said Lake Lady
The video I posted on the forum several days ago blends right in with this topic. Regarding the Leland Superintendent, she should be fired ASAP and the school board should be recalled ASAP. If not, then the taxpayers and parents of Leland will be up to their necks in Leftist radicals running their schools. Honestly folks, it's time to stand up. And make no mistake the Marxist ideology is alive and well in Mason County. We've seen that ever since the Master plans for the different municipalities were revised several years ago with the outside help from the Agenda 21 crowd. The Agenda 21 crowd has their hands in all sorts of radical events that will cause upheaval throughout the World. When they came to town in the form of ICLEI, to help frame Ludington's Master plan, their intentions were not to help but to influence and steer our local leaders to the left. This has happened all over the State and Country. ICLEI is an international organization promoting all of the radical leftist ideals and are funded by some very powerful companies and foundations.
Dang! Just watched this. Horrifying.
The big question is ... who brought this organization into Ludington? That is what I would like to know. We need to know who these people are so we can educate the voters. We need to have brave people run against this doctrine. Now that we have a giant elementary school boondoggle being built,(Destroying neighborhood schools is also a goal of the left. ) what do you suppose will happen to those buildings and property in the middle of residential neighborhoods in the city near the beach? I will put my money on more affordable housing so they can bring in more dependent indigent voters( that our taxes support and feed) to keep them all in power. This whole thing is crazy. It is all sounding very similar to what is happening in China. Man! This explains what is going on in the schools and why the teachers unions are so powerful. Where are the parents in all this? Come on now?
The influence of the Resilient Ludington initiatives are going to be revisited in a resolution at tomorrow's city council meeting. Looking at the agenda packet you will notice two issues coming from the Finance Committee, involving two resolutions. One (p. 37-8) showing the COL's support of federal stimulus investments into coastal Great Lakes areas-- of course, because we would get that "free money", but climate change is given credit for speeding up 100 year storms by a factor of 5, and as a major reason we have high waters. The authors of RL are the same jokers who were telling us back in 2013 that low lake levels were due to global warming aka climate change:
The second is a resolution supporting our governor's face coverings executive order and defining the COL's approach. If you feel the need to cover your face in the hope of minimizing exposure to COVID-19 for you (and others if you believe that asymptomatic transmission is possible), then go ahead, but don't make me wear one when the science says the opposite. Let's not forget Dr. Fauci and his CDC cronies were saying no masks all the way while the death curve trended upwards during the first 30 days. There has still been no science over the last few months that would tend to disprove the orthodox view held by the CDC and WHO before this March, who relied on past studies that shown no benefit to healthy people wearing face coverings out in the community for viruses like this. The policy on p. 31-32, does not even allow for any of the several exemptions found in that order, and so if you ever do find law enforcement being applied to you by the LPD or by area businesses, for that matter, let me know so we can talk about your rights in this pandemic.
I expect the Maskholes will be out in force if this passes. It is getting tiresome. The sheep are doing exactly the same thing in all liberal run cities. I just don't get why the reasonable people are just going along with everything. I am very vocal about all of these things and rarely get pushback in public. They are all bullies and bullies are cowards. We must stand up to them. And BTW ... all this climate BS is a money grab and completely fake news. I am sure if you dig deep enough you will find all paths lead to the money train...And... what the hell does the city council know about Science and Storm events? Appears they are all sheep as well... What will they do when they tax hardworking people out of the city? Someone has got to pay their bills.
I have been contemplating that concept "what will the city council do when they tax the hardworking residents out of the city"? Or when they "code" them out? Not that I'm against certain standards, but the fear of a nazi-like council allowing unannounced fines upon a citizen with a $275 didn't-mow-your-lawn fine, for example, is "pure living in fear Ludington." I don't know if it's called socialism or nazismo or just crazy. And water and sewer rates rising up like crazy, while everyone at city hall get good raises including councilors and mayor while our streets are some of the most bumpy in West Michigan. Sewer stinks, water intake, Pfas in Dow wells, and pollution off scales in the PM Bayou not discussed. Those are the practical things that undone could make Ludington more livable. But somehow it seems the insider secrets are to bring in greater density of people to live off the government or tourist income to help the business downtown to solve the whole city's problems?
Wake up and learn and think about Real sustainability, by reducing the city debts and prepare for greater economic disaster, city council. Uncle Sam is near $25 trillion in debt (as of May 2020), State of Michigan is $3 billion in predicted deficit this year now (nearly 1/3 of annual budget). The big government handouts may dry up.
And what does our new city manager do about informing the council of the budget? Go along with what has been in place to overspend on "sexy" city beautification and stick his head in the sand with the rest of the overspenders at city hall?
Right on Freedom Seeker!
I am watching the Levin Show on FOX. Please watch it! It explains a lot about the sell out mentality of our City Council. The free money "Grants" are behind the changes we are observing here. Please watch the episode and share it . It is disturbing, but there is time before the election to educate people about Biden's plan to keep Obamas agenda going. They want to "Fundamentally transform" all small towns and cities... by inserting as much Federal Government control as possible. For Libertarians , this should be the call to rally votes for Trump.Research AFFH.
Thanks Willy for posting the clip. Please watch it and share , share , share!
Yes, Trump and Ben Carson ended the creative move by Obama called AFFH, but do not get comfortable folks. One would assume that this would be the end of it, but no such thing lasses and ladies... BTW , keep in mind that this was not a law, but an "addition" to the law or interpretation of such. " Interpreting the law" is what the left is famous for. This is the main reason they want to take over the policing in addition to the Public Schools. ( which is pretty complete) I remember asking at the short term Airbnb meeting about the existing zoning laws that clearly state that certain areas do not allow for such in the zoning. They laughed and moved on. Clearly zoning here is just an "idea" that one can use if the wrong people do not agree with the CC.
A entire system and money grab with grants and directives have been set up to destroy the suburbs and rewrite zoning laws in order to reshuffle the deck. All you need to do is read news from several states and cities and see the same playbook is still being used despite the rollback.
The Marxists do not care about the law. They know we cannot stop them. In the Grand Rapids Press this am they just announced 9000 housing units planned for the next five years. In Newton Massachusetts they just passed an ordinance to allow low income housing and apartment buildings in residential neighborhoods of million dollar homes. They are encouraging buying up homes for sale and tearing them down to build multiple units on tiny lots. They are planning massive building of cluster housing near the railway stations. In Crozet Virginia,( Old Trail) they built a beautiful neighborhood at the foothills of the Blue Ridge. Large, expensive single family homes. After those people built their dream homes and raised the tax base, they build hundreds of cluster apartments across the street, blocking the mountain views of course and brought in city low income residents. The homeowners freaked out because it went against the HOA and the zoning, but their lawyers cited the FEDERAL LAW. And guess what folks...? You guessed it... new Elementary school to educate this new "city' in the mountain farmland. Who is paying for it? The homeowners who invested in those beautiful homes that they cannot sell now. This exact move was mentioned in the Fox piece and this is all AFTER Carson rolled back the AFFH. This is not over. Just look at the ugly apartments they built downtown and the people moving into them. The blight will not be far behind...You can already see it creeping in . The units were advertised statewide if not nationally. Let's all keep an eye out for what will happen to the old school building property sites and who will build there. I am not a betting gal, but my money is on density with affordable units with indigent people from out of the county , if not state ,coming in....and of course, they need single mothers with lots of children to fill up the big new school they are building. Better to indoctrinate you " my pretty" said in my best Wizard of Oz Wicked Witch voice!
