Many are convinced at this point, and I'm one of them, that much of what our government is now doing in the name of "protection" really isn't about keeping people safe.
More often than not, what we're seeing is overreach in an effort to control society and to keep them compliant. A scared society is an easily controlled society.
Many state governors have been on powertrips and have issued some of the most ridiculous mandates I've ever seen. They are completely arbitrary and nonsensical.
It now looks like Massachusetts can call the Department of Children and Families (DCF) on parents if their children don't show up for "Zoom school".
DCF has also empowered teachers to report cases of suspected abuse to the agency, even if the only evidence teachers have is information gleaned from a Zoom session.
“The department has the power to remove children from their homes and place them in foster care if agents suspect that kids are being mistreated, abused, or neglected—and DCF considers distance-learning no-shows to be possible abuse cases,” Reason reports. “DCF lists numerous circumstances in which teachers should feel obliged to call the cops, among them kids appearing tired or hungry during Zoom sessions.”
Several parents who spoke to the Boston Globe say they received repeated contact from teachers who threatened to call DCF is their children’s virtual school attendance didn’t improve. One was accused of neglect because her child missed homework; another was reported to DCF (and received a visit from the local police department) after her autistic 6-year-old son, who was naked, disrupted her daughter’s Zoom class.
Would this have happened if they were physically going to school like normal? Of course not.
Now, I can understand that if the child is enrolled in public school and they don't show up for a number of days consecutively why they would call someone. I still don't think that it's right, but I can understand why they would "investigate".
Once again, this is just another reason to withdraw your children from public school. If your children are still in public school, consider pulling them out. If you still feel like you need more reasons, keep up with my articles and you'll get plenty.

Kellyanne Conway Stepping Down to Focus on Family: 'Less Drama, More Mama'
White House Senior Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway revealed on Sunday that she will be stepping down from her position in the Trump administration in order to focus on her family. As much as that news saddens me, I completely understand the stresses of work and needing to step back in order to give more attention to your children.
“This is completely my choice and my voice,” Conway said. “In time, I will announce future plans. For now, and for my beloved children, it will be less drama, more mama.”
Andrew Yang and Julia Louis-Dreyfus Make HORRENDOUS Joke During DNC About Mike Pence
Oh, the many things I could say about the Democratic National Convention. If you watched it at all, and I honestly hope you did subject yourself to it, you would know that it was a complete dumpster fire.
But one of the "highlights", if you can call it that, as when former Democratic candidate Andrew Yang and Seinfeld actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus made a very cringy attempt at humor by trying to attack Mike Pence by making fun of his name.
Family Claims Foul After Woman’s Death Certificate Lists COVID-19 As 'Cause of Death'
Ever since the coronavirus pandemic started, some "experts", as well as state and city leaders, have been wanting to enforce as many unreasonable measures as possible and claim it all in the name of safety.
If we could just do this for a little while to flatten the curve, then we could get back to our normal, everyday lives. You see how that's turned out, don't you?
