The GIVE Act and The Indoctrination of American School Children

Yesterday was the first time I heard about the GIVE Act. Perhaps I have been spending too much time on Facebook. At first glance the bill seems like a feel good funding of community organizations and education for volunteerism. However, there is more than meets the eye with this current legislation. The Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act (H.R. 2867) has passed the House and the Senate, and America came dangerously close to forced advocacy.

Previous provisions in the bill would have forced Americans to engage in some kind of community service. Luckily the hullabaloo raised over this provision lead it to its eventual death on the cutting room floor. This time we can breathe a sigh of relief, but do not count the initiative out. The crafters of the bill who put that in will most likely want to try to sneak it in somewhere else. Is that not the usual with the American CONgress?

As it stands the GIVE Act gives $6billion to community organizations and charities, and yes that includes the ever aggressive and corrupt ACORN. The Act also appropriates funding for educational programs, which is of great concern to many Americans who have looked into Barack Obama's community organizer days.

Not to beat a dead horse, but there is a connection between William Ayers and Barack Obama. Cry foul as one might, it is there and it is not based on bombing the Pentagon. It was based on education reform through CAC and CPAA where Obama and Ayers served on the same board promoting the same agenda. On the surface the agenda was more funding for public school systems, but while the one hand was promoting funding the other was slipping the indoctrination card from its sleeve.

The indoctrination of K-12 children in American schools across the nation is not far away, indeed it has already begun with the election of William Ayers as president of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). His influence is now over hundreds of thousands of children in classrooms. His agenda is social advocacy, which would be fine if Americans did not know that his particular brand of social advocacy involves bombing the Pentagon.

Obama and Ayers have a similar foundation to their community organization skills, the teachings of Saul Alinsky. He is the author of the book Rules for Radicals. These rules are meant to teach community organizations how to achieve their goals, the basic rule is the end justifies the means. They are as follows.

Here are Alinsky's rules to test whether the means are ethical.

1.One's concern with the ethics of means and ends varies inversely with one's personal interest in the issue.

2.The judgment of the ethics of means is dependent upon the political position of those sitting in judgment.

3.In war the end justifies almost any means.

4.Judgment must be made in the context of the times in which the action occurred and not from any other chronological vantage point.

5.Concern with ethics increases with the number of means available and vice versa.

6.The less important the end to be desired, the more one can afford to engage in ethical evaluations of means.

7.Generally, success or failure is a mighty determinant of ethics.

8.The morality of means depends upon whether the means is being employed at a time of imminent defeat or imminent victory.

9.Any effective means is automatically judged by the opposition to be unethical.

10.You do what you can with what you have and clothe it in moral garments.

11.Goals must be phrased in general terms like "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity," "Of the Common Welfare," "Pursuit of Happiness," or "Bread and Peace."

Here are his rules of power tactics.

1.Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.

2.Never go outside the experience of your people.

3.Whenever possible, go outside of the experience of the enemy.

4.Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.

5. Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.

6.A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.

7.A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.

8.Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.

9.The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.

10.The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

11.If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside.

12.The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

13.Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

These are the foundations of modern community organizations, of which children ages K-12 are being encouraged to join and through which will be indoctrinated. While Saul Alinsky felt Democracy was the easiest way to achieve his goals, the groups which advocate under his rules are for big government closer to that of socialism. ACORN is one of those groups, and it will be receiving funding I can bet my eye teeth on that. The question is, do you want ACORN teaching your children how to be an upstanding citizen in the community?
