Absent dads to blame for dropouts

Thinking Right’s weekend free-for-all. Pick a topic:

● The consequences of ending the military draft are becoming readily apparent. Politicians, entertainers and opinion leaders who have no clue about the military are insisting on the end to “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Heavens, even the clueless Lady Gaga joins the parade.

But, of course, if one intends to use the military primarily for humanitarian and other low-stress missions, social engineering is more understandable. It’s not surprising that an administration that’s using NASA to make Muslims feel good about their contributions to science has its own agendas for the military.

● Headline: “Austell residents ask for more upscale stores.” Mommy, where do upscale stores come from? Once, my dear, free markets created them. Now? Let’s pressure the politicians.

● It’s really quite remarkable how much blame-shifting to the public schools occurs. The Schott Foundation, based in Cambridge, Mass., checks the numbers on high school dropout and graduation rates and concludes “the American educational system is systemically failing Black males.” Some 70 percent were born to unmarried women. The boys were failed by the no-shows at the altar. Quit passing the buck.

Drew Charter School, called a “cradle-to-college pipeline” in the once-horrendous East Lake neighborhood of Atlanta, is an example of interventions that can help — but lots of ideas that work on scales of one or two can’t be mass-produced. Because public schools often start with fatherless children and unstable homes, the current mass-education model is antiquated. Georgia should have a thousand or more schools where parents and teachers are designing structure and instruction to fit specific groupings of children. And please don’t federalize the process.

● I don’t know the newly chosen Atlanta school board chairman, Khaatim Sherrer El, 29, but if he always makes as much sense as he did in Sunday’s AJC interview, I don’t understand all the fuss about five members deciding to can his predecessor and choose him following the CRCT cheating scandal.

The system needs “to close out this investigation and do it in a way that is completely transparent …” El says, vowing, as I read his fuller remarks, to champion transparency.

● I don’t vote for third-party candidates. Ross Perot broke me of that. They’re spoilers. But if I did, Libertarian gubernatorial candidate John Monds of Cairo has a lot of appeal.

He’s a stay-at-home dad who home schools four children, ranging in age from 4 to 13. “You can tailor your teaching to the child. In the government system, you don’t have that type of flexibility. Also, you can instill a moral foundation not only to their life but to their learning,” he explains.

If I voted for third parties, I’d also be taking a hard look at Kira Willis, the party nominee for state school superintendent.

● How very sensible. Regents of the University System of Georgia will decide next month whether to require public colleges and universities to give slots to academically qualified applicants who are legal before giving them to illegals and to verify that students seeking in-state tuition are here legally. That’s a policy regents can explain and defend on every street corner in Georgia.

● Wake me when the Bishop Eddie Long tale ends. The country’s on the road to ruin and the sex life of a prominent and influential church figure, true as alleged or not, doesn’t amount to a hill of beans. Frankly, a man whose ministry touches the hearts and plants virtue in the souls of 25,000 people on Sunday is somebody whose travails should bring joy to nobody.

The country is dying here before our eyes and Eddie Long, whomever that is is news? The same with DADT, take a vote of the military and live with it.

The Regents policy revision to favor people here legally over the illegals should not even be necessary if these people had any common sense. While revising it they should also make it say that Georgia students who meet the qualifications should be admitted over those from other states. It is just stupid and idiotic to turn down the people whose families have attended the school for generations and have paid Georgia taxes for decades, so that you can admit someone from North Dakota. Diversity is not the be all/end all that Mike Adams and the zeroes on the Regents think it is.

About the ‘Bishop’….maybe it’s true and maybe it ain’t….but the script is the same now as it was in the Old Testament…and as recently as Jimmy Swaggart and Bill Clinton and Mike Vick and SC Gov and on and on….

The script is: Success + Money + Power + Opportunity = Sex + Trouble

It was true of King David in olden times, and we human beings ain’t changed much in thousands of years, now have we?

I guess Mr. Wooten believes free markets not all the $$$$ in state handouts is the reason for the Kia plant in Georgia.

Actually, I think Mr. Wooten got it wrong on the draft’s effect on DADT. If the draft were still in place, DADT would have long since been relegated to the graveyard of history.

As for all those thousand or more charter schools Mr. Wooten longs for, I agree with him on not federalizing the process. I also believe that no federal monies should go to such programs.

Dear Jim,

Thank you for your optimism for the future of the Atlanta Public Schools. I believe my colleagues now recognize that we’re living in a new era of accountability. Just as families are scrutinizing where their money is going, so should we. Just as businesses are revolutionizing the way they compete in the global marketplace, so should we. Transparency in all these decisions must be the rule of the day. In the coming weeks, the Board will host its first retreat in more than three years. I invite you, and your faithful readers, remain engaged as we plan for our children’s future together.

Sincerely,

Re: “Absent dads to blame for dropouts”. Agreed! But the single moms are not helping. Pregnancy, often repeatedly, with no stability (mainly from the dads) or visible means of support (financial and emotional) should be a more reasoned decision.

The lead story at this hour (2am) is why the (polish the) “Bishop” Long story matters. He has his hands deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep in the pockets of DCSS. The extent of that relationship must be fully revealed to the public. When it is, you’ll see why a few of us sane folks in the system are cheering the removal of his influence.

======================
Sex is a responsibility shared by men and women, so the blame should also be equally shared.

However, we can thank the government to providing benefits to families without a male in the house. Benefits should be cutoff after one such incident, yet mothers continue to make the same mistakes. No marriage or no other spouse to share the load then no benefits! Take the children from those homes and place them in foster care. Habitual violators should face some time working on government projects to pay back their benefits.

Mr. El, you have guts, and class, for coming on here with your real name, and office phone number. I hope you are successful. And Mr. Wooten, you are right; third party candidates only serve to dilute the conservative vote, as they hit on issues that drive the far right nuts, and take votes away from the sensible candidate (that, and a Libertarian administration would be about as effective and efficient as a one-legged man at a butt-kicking contest). Deal may have issues, and financial problems, but I’d rather have him (or Casey Cagle if Deal has to resign), than anything that King Roybama has to offer. I learned all I need to know the last time (didn’t vote for him then, either).

You could drive a Sherman tank through the hole where Jim is NOT talking about Nathan Deal and his “revisions” to his finances. I’d like to know who is in charge of his 401K. It has supposedly increased in worth 50% in the last couple of years (years that have not been kind to you or me). In addition, he has “found” more assets (and liablilities) in the last few days, and some of his assets have mysteriously increased dramatically in worth in less than a week! How very convenient–to show you are not insolvent by increasing the value of your assets. Let’s see him GET those amounts for the properties! Legitimately get the amounts, not selling them to one of his “boosters” to whom he will owe much.

A man whose financials change 3 times in a week, who claims he “didn’t understand the reporting requirements”–I mean, really, you want someone who “forgets” his 50% ownership, and who has frequently misrepresented himself–THAT is the person the Republicans want in office?!?!

And Jim goes blithely on, ignoring it.

Rick – and from where are these foster homes to come exactly? The system is already full as it is without forcing more children in to it.

This issue frustrates me like few others do because it is so often driven by extreme comments on both sides without regard for practical solutions. As a single mother myself, I resent the implication that I am incapable on my own of instilling the importance of education to my children. In my household, school is a requirement, not a choice. I check their homework nightly and assist them when they need help. My daughters have as many books as they do toys and read well above their grade levels. They are both straight A students in school. I do not talk to my girls about “if” they will go to college, but “when” they will go to college. I serve on the Governance Council of their school.

As a single mother who has been through the welfare system, I also resent the implication that we are all just lazy good-for-nothings looking for a free ride and freedom from the consequences of our poor choices, sometimes made unwittingly. I busted my tail for years working a full-time job and getting myself through college while raising my daughters so that I didn’t have to depend on anyone other than myself to support my family. It just took some help to get to that point.

Single parents are an unfortunate reality in today’s society. Instead of just condemning them outright, we need to focus on more practical solutions to decrease the number of single parents (more access to affordable birth control other than condoms would be a good start) and also how to set them up for success instead of continued dependence. By all means, no one should spend endless years in the system without a very compelling reason. However there are often few avenues to teach these women skills or help them get an education in order to bring them up to a better place.

More people on both sides should remember that the welfare system is meant to be a hand up instead of a hand out and discuss accordingly.

Mr. Wooten:

Although I seldom agree with your musings, it appears we are on the same page regarding Nathan Deal.

Your praise for the third party candidate is a damning statement regarding Deal. As the republican newspaper writer, you rarely, if ever, stray from the party line.

When candidates run for public office, many bemoan the long drawn out campaigns. I do not. Campaigns offer insiight into the the decision making skills, including the skilll of thinking on your feet. It also allows a voter to peek into the character and integrity of the candidate. One must be careful and discount most of the commericals and propaganda of the campaigns.

the republicans in Georgia had at least two (Handel and Jonhnson) electable alternatives to Nathan Deal. They chose Deal without knowing the true story of his quesitonalble financial background. During the primary, many of his supporters responded to my questions regarding his less than full disclosure by asking, “what possible motivation would he have to cover us his finances” or “why would be jeopardize his name and future by making unethical profits from his position?”

That motivation has now become crystal clear.

yeah, 58% of black males drop out because their parents are no married. nice try. Problems: black males drop out an alarmingly high rate. 70% are born to unwed mothers. solution: (has to be) FORCE black people to get married (except same-sex couples. has anyone studied the graduation rates of the children of same-sex couples? and with the heterosexual divorce rate for whites at about 50%, why are white males not dropping out at the same rate (or 20% less – or are they?). do we need to force white couples to remain married until their sons (only) graduate H.S.? surely you see there are more factors involved then merely standing at the altar and saying “I do”. it’s part of the problem, but more accurately, reveals a larger problem.

Hmmmm. Let’s see. Homosexuality is clearly a determining factor in the worthiness of a soldier to “plant virtues” and “Iraqi Freedom” at the end of a gun barrel. But the sex life of a minister doesn’t amount to a “hill of beans” in a court case where there are charges of homosexual, sexual coercion as long as he “touches the hearts and plants virtues” of 25,000 people every Sunday.

Public school systems are failing “systematically failing black males” who “some 70 percent are born to single mothers”. What about the single mothers who, trying to break the cycle of poverty, sent their sons to Long’s church to listen to his “gospel of prosperity” only to have them preyed upon by Pastor Down Low.

And, especially since the military is primarily be used to for “humanitarian and low stress missions”? Huh, What? What planet do you reside on? Tell that to the 5,677 U.S. military dead and their families currently engaged in the longest war in U.S. history.

Hopefully, you’ll be held accountable for such statements one day.

The draft should have never ended. Every kid right out of high school, or if you drop out at 16, should serve 2 years active duty and 4 in the reserves. If your kid gets in trouble at 16 or 17, don’t ruin their lives with a felony conviction, depending on how bad, let them join the service. This may give them some discipline, and save us paying for prison later.

Hey, Jim, how about writing (and not an apologetic) about Raw Deal’s financial disclosures (only after much pressure from AJC discoveries — darn, that transparency stuff). And I also post the following for your enjoyment. Seems like those you trust (I believe you have Republican leanings) are not trusted by the majority of Americans, regardless of how you and the spin-meisters in Washington would have us believe.

WASHINGTON — If anyone is scorned as much as Democrats these days, it’s Republicans — the party that may recapture the House and perhaps the Senate in November’s elections.

Yet Democrats trying to exploit the GOP’s unpopularity in hopes of hanging onto control of Congress face a problem: People who dislike Democrats seem ready to vote in greater numbers than those with little use for Republicans.

In an Associated Press-GfK Poll this month, 60 percent disapprove of the job congressional Democrats are doing — yet 68 percent frown on how Republicans are performing. While 59 percent are unhappy with how Democrats are handling the economy, 64 percent are upset by the GOP’s work on the country’s top issue. Just over half have unfavorable views of each party.

Most say President Barack Obama isn’t cooperating enough on the economy; yet even more accuse Republicans of the same thing. Former President George W. Bush and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin — the only two Republicans the AP-GfK Poll tested — are both viewed negatively by more than half in the survey, worse than Obama’s marks. And people overwhelmingly fault Bush more than Obama for the recession.

Yes, a third party candidate can be a spoiler. But when the two primary party candidates are equally repulsive, what choice do we voters have?

I don’t have a dog in the APS fight, but I wish Khaatim Sherrer El well. He seems to want to be in it for the right reasons. Word of advice, the only way to restore credibility to APS is to replace Superintendent Beverly Hall along with a lot of her direct reports.

Yes, the illegitimacy rate among blacks is a disgrace. But as long as the politically correct calls Bill Cosby an Uncle Tom, and white folks racist for merely discussing the issue, it will never get better. To solve a problem, you must first be able to talk about the problem.

When they ended the draft, they also ended one of the incentives to end wars quickly. Multiple deployments are bad, but hey, you knew what you were doing when you signed up. Yanking someone out of the living room against their will, giving them six weeks of basics, and throwing them in a rice patty halfway around the world left a bad taste in a lot of peoples mouths.

African Americans have committed a great transgression against God Almighty….They have integrated with every group of people on earth in the spirit of Nimrod, undoubtedly betraying a sacred trust with those who have gone before us and those who will come after.

In the Old Testament we learned that Ezra and Nehemiah were like men stunned to discover members of the Jewish community integrating with other people in the spirit of Nimrod. The act of integrating constituted a clear and direct affront to the will of The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. And to make matters worse, some Jewish families even had mixed children…

The true worshippers of God Almighty in our time were stunned to find the masses of African Americans submitting to integration in 1970… And many African American leaders in the north boasted of transgressing the will of God Almighty much earlier than the south in exchange for money, fame, status, plush jobs, education, etc… Some had mongrel children and were encouraging other integrationist African Americans to do likewise.

It is for this cause that God Almighty gave the integrationist African Americans and their children up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

The true worshippers of God Almighty find no joy in the travails of Eddie Long and the rest of the integrationist African Americans or their children. But they should not have willfully disobeyed the will of God Almighty and integrated with every group of people on earth in the spirit of Nimrod…

And as we speak the integrationist African Americans and their minions are committing yet another transgression against God Almighty. They are blaming the evil that God Almighty is visiting upon their children for integrating with others in the spirit of Nimrod on absent dads.

Now it was Nimrod who excited them to such an affront and contempt of God. He was the grandson of Ham, the son of Noah, a bold man, and of great strength of hand. He persuaded them not to ascribe it to God, as if it were through his means they were happy, but to believe that it was their own courage which procured that happiness. He also gradually changed the government into tyranny, seeing no other way of turning men from the fear of God, but to bring them into a constant dependence on his power. He also said he would be revenged on God, if he should have a mind to drown the world again; for that he would build a tower too high for the waters to reach…

“The consequences of ending the military draft are becoming readily apparent. Politicians, entertainers and opinion leaders who have no clue about the military are insisting on the end to “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Heavens, even the clueless Lady Gaga joins the parade.”

I’m a veteran who served with gay men and women who thinks the idiotic policy should be ended. Is it OK for me to have an opinion, Mr. Wooten? And what happened to civilian control of the military?

As our drill sergeant used to say in cadence at basic training, Fort Jackson SC, am I right or wrong? You’re right! Am I rolling strong? So strong! Well sound off!…

It’s impossible for the New World Order crowd or their minions to deceive Dr. Stan, the black one like they did the integrationist African Americans and their children. Everyone would be able to think thoughts worthy of thinking if they had not taken the tranquilizing pill on integration.

Am I right or wrong? You’re right! Am I rolling strong? So strong!

Jim, I thought you and your readers would enjoy the following.

The super-rich got even wealthier this year, and yet most of them are paying even fewer taxes to support the eduction, job training, and job creation of the rest of us. According to Forbes magazine’s annual survey, just released, the combined net worth of the 400 richest Americans climbed 8% this year, to $1.37 trillion. Wealth rose for 217 members of the list, while 85 saw a decline.

For example, Charles and David Koch, the energy magnates who are pouring vast sums of money into Republican coffers and sponsoring tea partiers all over America, each gained $5.5 billion of wealth over the past year. Each is now worth $21.5 billion.

Wall Street continued to dominate the list; 109 of the richest 400 are in finance or investments.

From another survey we learn that the 25 top hedge-fund managers got an average of $1 billion each, but paid an average of 17 percent in taxes (because so much of their income is considered capital gains, taxed at 15 percent thanks to the Bush tax cuts).
