"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power." - Thomas Jefferson 1820

"There is a growing technology of testing that permits us now to do in nanoseconds things that we shouldn't be doing at all." - Dr. Gerald Bracey author of Rotten Apples in Education

Maxine Waters Confirms "Big Brother" Database

We've provided information to readers over the years about the data to be mined from your child and given to various agencies and private research firms.  People are concerned about Facebook and credit card company breaches but for some reason, the divulging of personal student information has not garnered the same outrage and/or interest.  Maybe it's because  you can't see who is taking the information, who is receiving it and how it is being used by the government/private companies.

Maxine Waters stated that indeed, President Obama has established a massive database on American citizens that knows information about every individual.  She said the Democratic candidate in 2016 would "need to be down with that".

“The President has put in place an organization with the kind of database that no one has ever seen before in life,” Representative Maxine Waters told Roland Martin on Monday. “That’s going to be very, very powerful,” Waters said. “That database will have information about everything on every individual on ways that it’s never been done before and whoever runs for President on the Democratic ticket has to deal with that. They’re going to go down with that database and the concerns of those people because they can’t get around it. And he’s [President Obama] been very smart. It’s very powerful what he’s leaving in place.”


  1. A lot of people will think that "If I am doing no wrong, what does it matter". Until the government starts fooling with the data base and add things to your information that is not true just to get rid of you. Especially if you are an outspoken conservative. This is not the American way, it is the Obama way and it is scary.

  2. Oh my gosh. This made me sick.

  3. I'm not surprised...at all.

  4. AASHE (van jones) and the sustainabilty green army is a part of this, they connect to ICLEI. They gl from recycling to data management ...like East Germany.
