Is Al Gore somewhere in the Northeast?
I have received the following email which I pass along to those of you interested in the issue of the norming of the abnormal.
Back in October, you ran a story about the “Purple Penguin” gender identity training materials that were used by a school district in Lincoln, Nebraska. I am the mother who first received the materials from worried teachers and who organized parents to address the school board about the issue. In the two months between then and now, we parents have realized after many board meetings, letters, and one-on-one conferences with individual board members that the current school board is uninterested in our concerns, so I have decided to run for school board this coming spring.
What at first appeared to be a local issue is looking more and more like a national issue. These same gender identity training handouts recently showed up in Northern California, and parents there are as upset about them as we are. Parents around the country need to unite to take our public schools back from the advocacy groups that have infiltrated them.
Because I will be up against the formidable resources of the teachers’ union, whose representative has spoken in favor of the gender identity training handouts at a recent school board meeting, I have started a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for my school board campaign. I wondered if you could alert your readers to it. Small donations of just $5 or $10 can add up to a campaign that can effectively get a concerned mother on a school board to reinstitute parental rights.
Thanks so much for your concern.

A visit to Brett Kimberlin’s anti-GMO-food website (citizensagainstgmo.com) reminded me of a 1937 quote from George Orwell:
One sometimes gets the impression that the mere words “Socialism” and “Communism” draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, “Nature Cure” quack, pacifist, and feminist in England.
In America these days, it’s “Progressives” that fit Orwell’s bill.
Of course, Brett “legitimate” businesses that he used to launder his drug money were a health food store and restaurant, so he has been associated with moonbat cuisine for decades. Still, I wonder if the site generates many clicks on the Donate button? Given that it hasn’t be updated for about a year-and-a-half, probably not.
BTW, I am pleased to announce that the Orville Redenbacher popcorn offered by Hogewash! via Amazon does contain GMO corn.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m against littering, and I think we should do our best to keep the Earth neat and tidy. Still, some environmentalist reports seem a bit over the top.
DaTechGuy offers some real world facts and figures related to the (*gasp*) 268,940 tons of plastic reported to be lurking in the world’s oceans. He points out that’s less than the mass of 3 modern aircraft carriers. I’ll add this factoid: There is roughly 74 billion tonnes (that’s the metric kind) of uranium dissolved in the oceans.
