COLLECTIVISM
By Brujo Blanco
When I was attending a university I had an instructor who was originally from East Germany. He was discussing his former life as it related to communism. He recalled that when he was going to school in East Germany he learned to speak Russian and was offered an opportunity to attend a university in Russia and like a good commie that is what he did. There was a break in school and he went to work at a commune. While there he was working in the fields and the tractor broke down. He looked at the problem and told his boss that he could fix the problems with just a few tools. The boss said that they had to call in a mechanic to do the work. Instead of getting it fixed in less than an hour they waited for four days. In the meantime some of the crops did not get harvested in time. Then there came a time when he needed a pair of shoes. He had the money so he went on a road trip to the shoe store. When he got there they did not have shoes but they would take your order and put you on a waiting list. This was just too much for him. He actually defected to the west over this and other problems. He told us that the commie system was so screwed up. There was health care that was free when and if it was available. There were stores with empty shelves. Also, the concept of communal living does not compute. When he lived and worked at the communal farms he noted that the children were in day care and were substantially being raised by the state. No one owned anything without the approval of the state. In fact at that time the Soviets were rationing bread and of course shoes.
Now in our country some pinko came out with this concept that our children are not ours. Children belong to the community. I suspect that that means the state is in charge of family matters. Communism brings with it the concept that everything is owned by the people (“the people” is pinko talk for government) and not the individuals. I suppose we can all recall that Obama commented that if we have a business that we did not build that business but someone else did. This is collectivism in that there is no individuality.
Such systems have never been successful. There are those on the left that agree with that but claim that there has been no success because the right people were not in charge. Of course they will claim that their fearless leader (Obama) is the right one and it will work.
We are in trouble. I would like to see a successful lawful removal of all such leaders. The commie elites that are running the government will end up running every aspect of our lives if we are not careful.
Read Paul Jacobs. He has the right idea.

It Takes a Collectivist
Paul Jacobs
First they told us that we didn’t build our businesses. Now we learn that our kids aren’t ours.
“We have never invested as much in public education as we should have,” TV talking head Melissa Harris-Perry argues in the latest MSNBC “Lean Forward” propaganda spot, “because we’ve always had kind of a private notion of children: Your kid is yours and totally your responsibility. We haven’t had a very collective notion of these are our children. So part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents, or kids belong to their families, and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. Once it’s everybody’s responsibility, and not just the household’s then we start to make better investments.”
Yeah, better investments. Like Solyndra. Or . . . the K-12 public education system for which, since 1970, the federal government has increased per-pupil spending by roughly 190 percent, only to flatline test scores in math, science and reading.
“When the flood of vitriolic responses to the ad began, my first reaction was relief,” Perry writes on her blog. “I had spent the entire day grading papers and was relieved that since these children were not my responsibility, I could simply mail the students’ papers to their moms and dads to grade!”
Doesn’t Tulane University pay her for grading those papers?
Claiming to “double down” in her defensive blog post, she actually admits that, “Of course, parents can and should raise their children with their own values.”
Of course.
What does Melissa Harris-Perry not get? That children belong, not to the state or the collective, and not really to their parents, but to themselves.
Is that much individual freedom leaning too far forward?
This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

Smith plans to meet soon with Commissioner Goodell (The Associated Press)
San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith expects to sit down with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell ''in the near future'' to discuss any potential suspension for his off-field issues. Smith was sentenced last Friday to serve three years of probation and to spend 11 days with a work crew after he pleaded no contest to drunken driving and weapons charges. Smith said he hasn't had time to begin the work yet, and will do so as his time permits. Of the ruling, Smith said he is ''glad how it worked out.'' He didn't want to guess whether he would face a suspension from the league, and said he is unsure whether Ravens running back Ray Rice's two-game penalty Thursday for his offseason arrest for domestic violence provides any indication.
