So I read today about a bill put forth in Congress, it is the bill that will kill not only our educational system, but working to continue the path of creating unhealthy children.
H.R.610 — 115th Congress (2017-2018)
Choices in Education Act of 2017
This bill repeals the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 and limits the authority of the Department of Education (ED) such that ED is authorized only to award block grants to qualified states.
The bill establishes an education voucher program, through which each state shall distribute block grant funds among local educational agencies (LEAs) based on the number of eligible children within each LEA’s geographical area. From these amounts, each LEA shall: (1) distribute a portion of funds to parents who elect to enroll their child in a private school or to home-school their child, and (2) do so in a manner that ensures that such payments will be used for appropriate educational expenses.
To be eligible to receive a block grant, a state must: (1) comply with education voucher program requirements, and (2) make it lawful for parents of an eligible child to elect to enroll their child in any public or private elementary or secondary school in the state or to home-school their child.
No Hungry Kids Act
The bill repeals a specified rule that established certain nutrition standards for the national school lunch and breakfast programs. (In general, the rule requires schools to increase the availability of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat or fat free milk in school meals; reduce the levels of sodium, saturated fat, and trans fat in school meals; and meet children’s nutritional needs within their caloric requirements.)
Basically, this will eradicate the separation of church and state. Taking public monies and allowing it to be used to send children to Christian Schools. No questions asked. Also, states like Texas, where the population is so full of fear and pride, the must carry an assault rifle to pick up a loaf of bread. Get to rewrite the school book curriculum to dumb down the children so they can’t grow past the level of consciousness of the adults, because of course, they are the only ones who know what is right. Whether they are alternative facts or not.
Also, if you read to the bottom, it will eliminate healthy food programs for the children in public schools. So giving the power back to Monsanto to poison the next generation, but only if your one of the multitudes that will be going to public schools. I’m sure that the private schools will still feed their children real food.
How can anyone watch what is happening and not be besides themselves, watching the dismantling of our country?
We are going to sell our public lands and national parks to the highest bidder. We are throwing away any integrity we may have had with the sovereign nation of the Dakota Sioux.
As we push for more oil and coal, and steer away from renewable energy. Countries such as Costa Rica, (considered a third world country by most Americans), has produced 99% of it’s electricy from renewable energy.
The United States, almost dead last. We are the only major industrial nation without an energy savings plan. We rank 13 out of 16 in the 2014 International Energy Score card. Pretty dismal for supposedly being the world leader and super power.
And in the midst of this catastrophic moment in time, I am reminded to hold Love for the world and all those who walk upon her shores.
To see the fearful, and bless them to grow past the blinding, False Evidence Appearing Real, (FEAR). All of this is being orchestrated by those with the most. Don’t believe me. Just look at the new administration’s cabinet. The lies, the deceit the creating of fear in the hearts of the men and women of our once great country.
I will spread my heart to those locked in the belief that this is the way we need it to be. I will spend every day making sure I assist those walking in darkness see the light. And those who are choosing to create darkness, I will light them up like the sun.
The pride of our president and the Christian alt-right pushing equally destructive unloving or caring agendas, will be the asking, what happened when, just as at the base of Mt. Sanai, dancing pridefully about their gold and superior nature, when the earth opened up to swallow the lot of them.
Pride is deceitful, intoxicating, and sin-breeding whether found in an individual, a group, a race, or a nation. It is literally true, “Pride goes before a fall.”
The narcissistic society that has been allowed to perpetuate within our country is what this quote was originally created for, almost 100 years ago it was written, and now we are witnesses to it truly being lived out.
I will hold the calm and peace of a new way. But never forget, just because I am peaceful doesn’t mean I do not have the ability to fight.
Project your light and peace into the prideful darkness of our time. For it is the only force that will truly stand the test of time…
Blessings, Love and Light to you and those you hold dear. In your hearts and in your shadows…
