Garden City: America’s future?

GARDEN CITY — Your home can be your birthplace. Or where you raise a family. Or where you bury your kin.

Kansas Representative Ryckman,
Five years ago when aggressive Kansas school funding caught our attention, we literally spent hundreds of hours researching, compiling and sharing historical data. Not used by anyone then and likely not used again. Illegal immigration is still an ugly subject to discuss openly. But we will try again in support of the time we have already spent.
For your use, information and ideas.
When we looked at the raw data available for Kansas schools, one could easily conclude that we are paying for student needs that don’t exist on paper in the legislative requests. A great deal of money is provided by Districts K-12 for required learning in languages other than English. One ELL (English Language Learner) per District requires native language employee/educator to provide the equivalent for all classes/subjects K-12 with no requirement the ELL student ever become educated in English. Kansas records show over 100 different languages taught for K-12. https://nolathe.net/2010/12/23/how-to-spend-271573451-that-you-dont-have/
Also of interest, Kansas does not refer to providing an education to children of illegal immigrants. In Kansas we educate children of “Migrant Workers”. https://nolathe.net/2010/12/26/kansas-education-dollars-and-the-grapes-of-wrath/
This also requires the School District to provide free breakfasts, free lunches, free healthcare, free before school care, free after school care, free Summer daycare, etc. https://nolathe.net/2010/12/26/kansas-education-dollars-and-the-grapes-of-wrath/
And we pay to make sure the migrant workers know about this information. http://ksmigrant.org/
Over-all impact on school funding observation: 2001-2009 Kansas student population DECREASED by 2.8% but funding INCREASED by 155.9% /nolathe.net/2010/12/28/the-kansas-oopps-moment-and-five-year-penalty/
Please do not deny that Kansas is a “sanctuary State“.

Naomi Klein admits global warming is not about science but destroying capitalism

The Heartland Institute published a very revealing article about Leftist shock jock Naomi Klein who just published a new anti-capitalst screed entitled This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate. Essentially, Ms. Klein admits that the issue of climate change (formerly known as global warming) is not about science but really about overthrowingcapitalism.

“Our economic model is at war with the Earth,” writes Klein. “We cannot change the laws of nature. But we can change our economy. Climate change is our best chance to demand and build a better world.”

The Heartland article goes on to say:

For the author, this completely boring, run-of-the-mill flight delay became a flight of fancy, inspiring her new work. This flight delay, she reasoned, was evidence of climate change. Who cares, she added, if we know that the solar cycles impact the planet, even more than CO2 emissions ever could. Science is not the point, but it makes for a great alibi. “The really inconvenient truth is that it’s not about carbon—it’s about capitalism. The convenient truth is that we can seize this existential crisis to transform our failed economic system and build something radically better,” she writes.

Another motivational moment for Klein, a single mother, happened when she was reading a children’s book to her son. The story was about a moose. She worried that the young lad would “never seen a moose” in his life. Then, reading another children’s book, this one about bats, she worried that the boy would “never see a bat.” Her overly emotional reactions to everyday things — plane delays, reading bed time stories to junior — are something that she feels must motivate us all to give up our way of life.

I am sure Ms. Klein has no problem traveling by plane, car, or train in order to promote herself or her publications. If global warming is not about science then I guess, in Klein’s mind, her promotion without regard for her carbon footprint is justified since if people like her are successful then her emissions won’t matter. Yet she has no problem enjoying all of the benefits of capitalism while condemning it in word but not deed. However, those of us on the side of civilization and reason owe people like Klein a debt of gratitude for their honesty. Naomi Klein is open about what environmentalists deny or refuse to admit and the greens probably cringe every time she opens her pathetic mouth.

Ms. Klein isn’t the first to communicate the Left’s blunt honesty about climate change. During October of last year, PJMedia posted this revealing article soon after a climate change event in Oakland, California. The article reveals a strong far Left presence at the ceremony during September 21st. Here is a video of the keynote speaker taken at the gathering:
