My teachers didn’t look like that when I was in school…

That was my first thought when reading of yet another illicit female teacher-student liaison, this time at Barstow High School in California’s desert gateway to Las Vegas.

A Barstow High School teacher is out on bail after being arrested amid a probe into an inappropriate relationship she was alleged to be having with an underage student, officials said Monday.

Authorities began investigating 51-year-old Katherine O’Neill, of Barstow, after someone came into the local sheriff’s station last Thursday to report the teacher was sexually abusing a 16-year-old girl, San Bernardino County sheriff’s officials said in a news release.

O’Neill has already been on administrative leave since October, deputies said. Before that, she had taught American government and history classes at the high school on First Avenue, according to the school’s website.

Detectives interviewed the student victim about the allegations and determined the teen and teacher had indeed been engaged in a sexual relationship. In addition to physical abuse, O’Neill is accused of sending the girl explicit text messages with obscene material, authorities said.

Investigators say the crimes occurred at various locations within Barstow.

It was unclear whether the student was in any of O’Neill’s classes.

The teacher was arrested Friday on suspicion of penetration with a foreign object, oral copulation with a minor, annoying and molesting and sending harmful matter to a minor.

O’Neill was released from custody the next day after posting $100,000 bail, officials said.

A court appearance has yet to be scheduled, inmate records show.


That thought was quickly extinguished when I saw what Katherine O’Neill looked like.



Nope.  This is exactly how they looked when  I was in school.


Detectives believe O’Neill could have additional victims.


Wasn’t me, I’ll guarantee you that…



Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Queen of Liberal tropes, fails to accuse Asians of “systemic excellence.”

The other day I mentioned one of the most common Leftist semantic tropes in today’s dialog: the indulgence in the use of the word “inclusive” to denote grievance and castigation.

This morning, I saw another Leftist trope which essentially serves the same Liberal function. An ostensibly neutral word garnered for their own political agenda and regurgitated incessantly to the bitter end. And if there is anyone better suited to regurgitate said Leftist tropes, it’s none other than our favorite walking trope.


system(ic) failure

An ambiguous phrase the Left uses to defer blame to everyone and anything except the Chronic Victim of the Day.

Yes, I agree; systemic failure defines the very fact that less that 1% of Black applicants are accepted to Stuyvesant, but the flawed system is ethnic/familial, not educational.

Are we to assume Asians suffer from systemic excellence?

I wonder if, in the same vein as Ambrose Bierce’s The Devil’s Dictionary, we oughta compile a thorough list of all Liberal catchphrases and hijacking of the English language to persistently spout emotive arguments lacking in reason or logic. Words which, inculcated with leftist symbolism, are used in place of intelligent or cohesive description or explanation.
