Occupy 2.0: Moral Monday Charlotte

Moral Monday made it’s debut in Charlotte yesterday in Marshall Park. Funnily enough, that is the same park the Occupy Charlotte took over and were kicked out of.

Moral Monday Charlotte brought BluePrintNC back into view and solidified itself as another incarnation of Occupy. Crazy signs, crowd estimates that were all over the map and the dramatic rhetoric now typical of these events was employed.

Occupy 2.0 on the move. Another day of coordinated fast food worker protests was held on July 29th in multiple states including Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, New York and Wisconsin. Some in Chicago even continued today, August 1st. The strikes focus on raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

Occupy 2.0: NC’s Triangle Jobs For Justice

We’ve learned that the SEIU is feeding offshoot groups to organize protests of workers in the fast food and retail industries. These groups are cropping up all over the country under a variety of names and include social justice themes, but all have the common goal of raising the minimum wage or talk about a ‘living wage’.

I’ve labeled these groups Occupy 2.0, since those running these groups usually have at least one staffer tied to Occupy and another to unions. Yesterday I pulled North Carolina’s ‘Moral Mondays’ protests and union presence into the mix: Continue reading

Overthrowing The Champions Of Mediocrity

Our children are under assault. I’m not just talking about the every growing list of scandals plaguing our schools, that if they were happening in any other institution, the media would be all over it. This assault is also not just from the various experiments in teaching, or the ridiculous over-reactions we’ve seen recently over pastries that look like they were bitten into the shape of a gun.

It’s an assault of stripping our children’s joy in achievement, of having friends and excelling in academics and in sports. It’s the underlying push for political correctness to be demonstrated at in all areas of school life. It’s the seemingly never-ending list of championing of mediocrity in the name of ‘fairness’:

No in school birthday parties.

No hugging your friends.

A trophy for just playing.

Kids told not to brag or be happy when they receive a good grade – even in college.

No recognition of outstanding achievement.

No cheering at graduation.

The message here is conform. Be like your everyone else, don’t step out of line. Don’t strive, don’t win. Winning is not the goal here, just showing up is. After all, it’s only fair. Continue reading
