JOE THE PLUMBER RELEASES PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT TO ADDRESS BULLYING CRISIS

Wurzelbacher provides common sense approach to deal with the problem of bullying in schools

Toledo, OH- The federal government spends millions of dollars every year to address the problem of bullying in schools. Joe the Plumber agrees that bullying must be addressed, but believes that real solutions should raise the level of self respect for the victim. To this end, Joe has produced the following public service announcement to help governments, schools, and kids take bullying head-on. A video of the announcement can be found here:

Wurzelbacher released the following statement on the announcement:

“I have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to bullies. If a kid is being bullied at school, my advice to them is to punch the bully in the face. The government can create as many boards, commissions, and informational sessions on sensitivity that it wants. The fact is, we still have bullies, and we still have victims who are trained not to stand up for themselves. In a time of fiscal crisis, it is low cost, effective policies like these that will turn this country around.”

    Joe, you are EXACTLY right. Starr Mayo, you are 100% right!! I had to do this as a kid, and I’ve seen many kids do the same. However, as a teacher I have also seen a student defend defend a girl from a methed-up boy who SHOULD NOT have been in the school. The defending student was fined $300 and had to do community service and he didn’t even HIT the kid, just locked-him down. (He could ripped his head off – he has a black belt.) I supported him, as did everyone else. But we have the “zero-tolerance” policy so even if you’re defending yourself or someone else, you still get hammered. I do not agree with this, but I “understand” it. Even so, yes, you stand your ground and take the punishment if necessary.
    I always tell this to my students, and I explain the policy. But wimping-out is not an option. Just like in American today – too many people accepting whatever violation of their God-given rights because they are “comfortable.” How comfortable is that FEMA camp going to be? Or how comfortable when an ARMED intruder enters your house and you have nothing but a butter knife to defend yourself? It’s time for America to get off it’s butt and KICK some butt – OUT of Washington!! MOLON LABE! One bullet at a time…from Texas,

    One of my daughters was tormented in the 4th grade for 3 weeks. I learned about it when I saw bruises all over her. I went on 3 separate occasions to discuss the situation with her teacher, counselor and principal to which their reply was the poor boy had problems because both parents were in prison and he was being raised by his grandmother. I told them that did not excuse or grant him the right to bully anyone. I also went home and told my daughter to ‘knock him out’ if it happened again. Well, it did, and she literally ‘knocked him out’. When the school informed me she was going to be suspended, I advised that the school and everyone I had spoken to would be named in a lawsuit. (I had taped all meetings and phone calls). Result: no suspension for my daughter and the boy never bothered her again. We all have to be pro-active to protect ourselves and our children at home, school and the workplace. As my father told me in a similar situation when I was in 8th grade, “Never back down, never give up, and take no prisoners.” FYI I was a single mother for many years and raised my 2 daughters and 3 others who came into my home. I told them all the same thing.

    Great advice Joe and I hope alot of kids take this advice and stand up for themselves. I know how it can be, being bullied as I was bullied alot in school and I didn’t do anything till one day when this guy pushed me just a little too much and I hit him. We got into a fight in the school band room and my good friend was there and he was just laughing his butt off while we rolled around. Fortunately we stopped just before the teacher came in, so we didn’t get into any trouble. The guy I fought with told me he would get me when I wasn’t with my friend(the laughing guy) but he never did and I had no more problems with him again.
