Happy Thanksgiving, Four Years Later

Anti Fed Ed Warriors, I cannot believe it’s been for years ago since I wished you all “Happy Thanksgiving” for the very first time on this blog! That’s right, back in 2014, in my early days of daily posts for your War Vs the Core information.

So much has happened between then and now, so I thought it might be an exercise in gratitude to see how far we’ve come in this War, together, as those fighting to save our nation, our kids, and our education. The best news? We’re not done yet! We have miles to go together.

‘Then’ (2014) words will be in italics; ‘Now’ words will follow with parentheses and regular font and will only appear where needed.

Enjoy and THANK you for being you. THANK you for being a fantastic and dedicated Warrior!

For all my fellow Anti CCSS/Fed Ed/Global Ed Warriors

“Okay, my anti Common Core warriors, it’s merely days before most of us will gather together to celebrate Thanksgiving 2014. I’m sure we have a million things to do between now and then.”
(Warriors
, Thanksgiving 2018 is almost upon us in
earnest. While we’re still focused on our mission, let’s take the time to enjoy our families and the brief break to be with them.)

“Thankful for what CC has taught me”:
(Thankful for what fighting against tyranny with others has taught me)

This day, as every day for me, I’m reminded WHY I fight Common Core: truth, freedom, and our students. (I’m reminded that our freedoms and liberties are being threatened now, more than ever; especially via education.)

Thanks to this fight, now a little over 5 years strong for me, I’ve been reminded  what REAL education is. (Nine years and countless hours)

Real teachers are always a blessing and a gift to our kids I am thankful for.

I’m thankful for true officials who, rather than sell out to false agendas, stand for truth.

It’s been a real blessing to be connected with so many everyday men, women, and students who, like me, could care less what convention is, and dare to be different.

Fighting CCSS has reinforced my voice as a citizen.
(Fighting ESSA and global education)

I’m thankful I live in a country where we are still free and able to exercise freedom of speech, not merely be ‘yes’ men and women.

It’s great to know that all of us, together are needed, vital, and a big part of the legacy of education in America.

I’m honored to be called a hero in this war and even more honored to have followers who are just as big in the ‘hero’ business.

Lastly, fighting Common Core has taught me that truth is bigger than fear.
That regardless of who’s watching, consistent pressure and effort is worth it.
(Fighting an educratic system has taught me truth is bigger than fear and safety in numbers in vital.)

Happy-Thanksgiving-Quotes-2
Near or far, I wish you and your family a wonderful week.


“So, my Warrior friends, I leave you with this:

May your travels be graced with safety and peace. May your families be happy and rich in laughter as you gather together. May you take every opportunity granted you to speak the truth with love and firmness. I hope to see you next week when I resume posting. Until then; time to get in the kitchen!

THAT SAID….

May our words, “End Common Core” be carried out to fruition.”
(May our dedication to ending the global and federal overreaches into our families be carried out swiftly.)

Number 420!

Lending a helping hand to all our anti CCSS Warriors out there is something I like to do.

We have begun another work week, anti CCSS Warriors. Today’s article marks my 420th on in the blogging world! What can we do from this day forward to help preserve our freedom in America? What more is there for us to do to fight for education and its restoration to a true quality based endeavor? In one word: Plenty!

My Recent Past:

If you follow me on Facebook (under my real name, Lynne M. Taylor), you know I have been blocked from sharing news for most of the past 2 weeks. When asked by fellow anti CCSS Warriors ‘Why?’, my answer has been, “Telling the truth.” We all know that Facebook is a ‘card carrying member’ of the CCSS Machine, so it is not really a surprise when any of us get blocked by the Zuckerberg-run organization. I am hardly the first, nor the last, anti CCSS Warrior to experience this treatment. However, we have found for one of the best ways to get information out there is to rely on the network. To that end, I will keep sharing the truth, in spite of the blockage. Why? If I give up, this member of the CCSS Machine will of beaten me in silencing me. I will NOT afford any member of the CCSS Machine that pleasure!

In Case You Didn’t Get the ‘Weekend News’:

Here it is, https://commoncorediva.wordpress.com/2016/04/17/watch-out-alignment-ahead/
In it, you will find how Dr. King (US Dept. of Education) is carrying on the pro ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act), CCSS (Common Core State Standards), CTE (Career Tech Education), and all the other parts of the education reform. You will also be supplied with information EVERY candidate (no matter how big or small the race they are in is) should be held accountable to. You will get a ‘connecting the dots’ look at total education alignment, from ‘cradle to grave’, and how the ESSA ties to WIOA (Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act) and the HEA (Higher Education Act).

What Is Ahead For Us:

No matter how silenced the CCSS Machine wants us, we must push forward with sharing as much truth as we can. History shows us, the truth always survives, and will always be there to guide us as we carry on our mission. We know, from our previous sharing, that it IS working. How? If it weren’t why would the CCSS Machine be in a panic when we speak out?! The CCSS Machine has discounted us, but they CANNOT stop us! We have been noticed by the CCSS Machine. Therefore, we KEEP up the pressure. Many in Congress are hot under the collar to share with us how GREAT the ESSA is. Many in the media are spinning propaganda out to do the same at rapid speed.

Sadly, much of America is buying it all, hook, line, and sinker. For this reason alone, we should be spurred on to SPEAK more, to keep researching, and getting the REAL truth out there. As I have stated in the past, I will continue to do this to the best of ability for as long as I have breath, or we champion the restoration of freedom/education; whichever comes first.

We Warriors have sacrificed much to get this far in the War Against the Core, but we will have to dig deeper into our reserves. We will have to keep inviting new Warriors to this War. We simply MUST. Consider the true definition of ‘warrior’, as seen below:

Thank YOU for being a Warrior for our nation, our future generations, and our educational systems!

Closing:

In light of all that is going on, please know I am considering a few actions I hope to not only have your support in, but your participation, as well.

1) I will continue researching, writing, and publishing here on the blog.

2) I am considering a code book type of project (if you will) of anti CCSS Warrior words we can use to alert each other to news to use/share. As in any war, there are spies. Spies use a coded language to communicate. I think it is high time we do so. If the CCSS Machine can doublespeak, we can do one better; use words, pictures, or symbols that make sense to no one but our Anti CCSS Warrior Team. (I will definitely need your help with this. Why? We must work together on something like this, otherwise, it is a selfish, unusable move.) We MUST be a united effort in all we do!

3) I am seriously considering a new, and thus, closed Facebook page. We would need to work together to invite Warriors from all over to join. What is holding me back a bit, is the fact it would be one MORE Facebook page for us to use. I know many of us are overwhelmed as it is NOW. Any thoughts or suggestions you have are welcome.

4) One anti CCSS Warrior is working on a website for me, so that I can be much freer to share research/articles, etc. How you can help (when this website is complete and running) is a) share privately with other Warriors it exists; b) schedule joint webinars, in person speaking, etc.; c) access any of the evidence you need for your specific fight in your State.

Again, thank you for what you do; for fighting for your kids, my kids, and all citizens; for getting up everyday, not sure of what needs to be done in this War, but doing it anyway and to the best of your abilities. Thank you for being a part of the Anti CCSS Warrior Team across America!
