A Cure For the Woes of the California Children's Prison System

Thanks to Rob at Wild Blue Yonder, we find this gem to aid the reconstruction of the utterly failing California Children's Prison system.

In a stunning development, it was announced today that Professor Dolores Jane Umbridge has been appointed Headmaster of the California Public Schools. Professor Umbridge has pledged to stamp out all forms of homeschooling and to bring California's troubled schools up to nineteenth century standards of discipline and performance.

"There will be no more nonsense", Umbridge has decreed.
As is well known throughout the civilized world, Prof Umbridge is a character from one of the Harry Potter books.

The decision follows a criminally incompetent decision by the bought-and-paid-for California state court of appeals that will allow the state's schoolteachers to remain as incompetent as they are with little chance for most families to escape the conversion of all children into welfare state worshiping marching morons. Expect an exodus.

Tip of the old gray fedora to Wild Blue Yonder, Rational Jenn and the Philosophical Detective.

Buying stock in the moving business.

Warm regards,

Col. Hogan
Stalag California

They don't like it when they can't get your children eh. Will there really be an exodus, can people really leave for greener pastures?

Col. Hogan said...


A very recent state appeals court ruling makes home schooling illegal in Stalag California unless the parent has a teaching credential. It remains legal in most other states, and some states are unlikely to change that anytime soon.

It simply becomes a matter of being able to make a living in the new location.

At least you know who you belong to in California, you belong to the state.

Col. Hogan said...

Sadly, TF, there aren't nearly enough people who think that's a bad thing--enough to want to do anything about it.

There is an easy way to deal with prison populations.

Decimate them.

Evey year, inmates are entered into a draw- one ticket for every year of their sentence. 10% of them are hanged publicly, every year.

Make 'em build their own prisons. That much work, they'll never want to go back there again.
