  • Maggie Murphy

    Hey Skip,

    I understand your pause with the public schools. I want to encourage you to look into the possibility of a local Catholic School. Before the anti-Catholic comments start, please know that my father (a fellow Marine and Protestant) was educated by the Jesuits at the encouragement of his old man (another Protestant). My dad felt that his Catholic education formed a baseline from which he would base much of his work at Hillsdale College. Though he never wished to join the Catholic church, he always respected their ability to educate. Just a thought…

    • Gladys Crump

      I don’t think so Maggie, Catholics voted for Obama, even though he is for abortion and birth control, might as well send your kid to a liberal public school as an expensive liberal one.

      • http://www.facebook.com/bob.ahbol Bob Ahbol

        If it’s true that most Catholics voted for Obama, they cannot possibly be “true”
        Catholics. Be that as it may, Catholic schools (K-12) do not teach that abortion
        and birth control are acceptable. If they do, they need to be reported to the
        appropriate Cardinal so that they can be re-educated or stripped of their designation.

    • a1NannaGail2u

      That is good advice Maggie. Our son, with help from his girl friends parents, currently has his daughter in Catholic pre-school. However, it is very costly and my husband and I are not financial enough to help him. So, his girl friends parent, who think the world of our son, decided they would pay for her, for the next two years. Wonderful, God blessed folks that they are.

      • http://www.monster-island.net/ kushibo

        Not to get too personal, but how is it that your son has a child and a girlfriend? Is he a widower? Is he divorced? Did he have a child out of wedlock? Normally, I really wouldn’t care about anything like that, but (except for the widower part) that runs right against the grain of what this article is talking about, that there are too many people who accept the ungodly practices of the secular left. That would include divorce and children out of wedlock.

        • a1NannaGail2u

          Yes kushibo, his wife went to jail for sex offenses against a minor boy, and he divorced her quick smart. Didn’t want their children in the same boat. His girlfriends is also divorced , her ex husband abused there little girl.

  • Fading Freedom

    Home schooled our kids back when it was a ‘weird” thing to do. Perhaps it still is counter-culture. I truly worried if I’d done the right thing when we started with the first. They are both doing really great in 3’rd/4’th year college; above most of their peers. Both work two jobs while in college also. Without doubt, it was a financial sacrifice through those years, but worth it for their future. I’ve never regretted doing it for them and they will do very well no matter what the economy.

    • Evermyrtle

      I believe the time has come, if we want our children to have a good education and to be safe from ant-GOD influences, as in the evil sexual education, that the government supports, even forces on our children, we must home school them. I believe that home schooling will be outlawed soon enough.

      There is so much hatred displayed in bullying, on people that refuse to follow anti-GOD beliefs that public schooling can be dangers in more than one way. Liberals, even school age liberals are filled for hatred for all who do not believe as they do, even if we never mention our beliefs, only refuse to take part in their evil activities, and they will be bullied unmercifully, are already being bullied.

  • Hiskid

    So sorry we didn’t have the family I always dreamed of having. Life didn’t work out that way, but the dream for a large family was my heart. Praying now for young Christian parents to “get after it”. Our generation can pray hedges of protection around you, and we will. That’s our commitment to God, to America and to you.

  • Potawatomi13

    Amen! I don’t see how any honestly God fearing and honest parent can inflict the public “school” indoctrination system on their children.

  • JJfan

    Going back to the beginning of a marriage; being faithful to your wife, husband and children; putting time and effort into your family; and being honest, trustworthy, hard working, and self-sufficient might go a long way toward “home schooling” our children. But then, I’ve been referred to as a dinasaur. I only hope I’m not the last of them.

    • a1NannaGail2u

      I hear you JJfan, My son always used to tell me “Oh you’re just too old fashioned”. NOW, he is starting to realize, the things I tried to teach him back then, are the things hHE is trying to teach his CHILDREN NOW. He has actually started listening to me again. Wonder of wonders. As I said above, he has found a wonderful schhol for his six year old, BUT, if anything changes in the class rooms, and he DOES keep a close eye on it, he will ppull them out and he, his girlfriend and I will home school them. I would do it NOW, but have had horrible illness over the past year and a half and am completely drained.
      My son has just gotten back to school, at age 28years, and is trying to get his Batchelors degree in Automotives, so has heaps of homework. However, his girlfriend questions the children extensively on what they did and what they were taught today at school. She is very aware of what the government is trying to do and wont allow her daughter, or my grand son and grand daughter, to be taught any of that crap. She keeps ME posted on everything.
      So anwyay, just keep up the good work and you are definitely NOT the only dinosaur left. Count me one too.

  • Dave

    There is no such thing as a “good public school”. There is not one that doesn’t push the leftist dumbed down curriculum. Outbreeding the left is one thing,outbreeding the muslims will be a bit more daunting. Been to Dearborn, MI. or Columbus, OH. lately? Then again we don’t strap bombs to our children to promote our beliefs.

    • RedStateKitty

      Agree 100% Dave. Problem is, the local government schools employ your neighbors and possibly your brothers and sisters in Christ, and it’s hard to tell them to get out. Either they’re offended that THEY don’t participate (but they do, they’re just brainwashed) or they are actively engaged in the brainwashing. Even in our own church there are very few with kids in Christian school and no homeschooling parents whatsoever.

      I have made it a mission of sorts to educate parents on the problem with government schools (and make no mistake, they ARE government–not “public” as in the public having much say or even access to the schools). If parents were in the classrooms they’d see! And parents who think of the government schools needing Christians, possibly they are right…but ONLY well-equipped and properly Biblically-educated Christian ADULTS. Children are in NO WAY prepared to be “mission workers” in a government school. And parents who mistakenly think that their kid may be an influence for good and for Christ, should read Proverbs more closely, about the company one keeps, and about the parents’ responsibility in the upbringing and teaching of their children. When you give your child to a government school for 6.5+ hours a day and you only have half that and you’re busy doing everything else then what has the most influence? The school!

      So far I have persuaded my son and daughter in law (my daughter and son in law having already come to that conclusion). I’m working on others.

      I substitute for support staff (i.e., the teacher aides, personal care aides and lunchroom staff) in what is considered to be the best system in this area. And they’re brainwashing the kids. I won’t participate any longer. I accept positions only in the lunchroom. I saw it with particular clarity two weeks ago (which is when I decided that I wouldn’t be in the classroom any longer and participate in this brainwashing). The teacher taught a short segment (to mentally handicapped kids in a “life skills” class in the high school). She said that the holiday was created in order to thank the people who founded this country and gave us our freedom! HUH???? I understand that the lessons were developed to try to avoid the appearance of violating the “establishment” clause but they went too far. It is NOT a violation of the establishment clause of the Constitution to state facts. And the documents from the time when the holiday was established, and proclamations from many a president and many sessions of Congress clearly show that the holiday was founded to give a time for Americans to take time to give thanks to God for his provisions. That’s the fact. Whether or not the people who celebrate the holiday NOW thank God, or not, the fact is it was established to give people the opportunity to do so. And that is just a small sample of the erroneous teaching going on there, not to even mention the influence of the broken kids coming from broken homes and situations and the effects of the media saturation of all sorts of inappropriate attitudes and mores!

    • granny

      You got that right……Dearborn is the cess pool of Michigan. Lived there back in the 70’s and they had already started invading. The dumb muslims think they own Dearborn & the police are letting them get away w/ it. They were trying to push their beliefs on our neighborhood back then. They lived 4 families in one house, until they started working and then bought more housing to bring over more rif-raff.

      • ginger

        They don’t Think they own Dearborn, they DO.

    • a1NannaGail2u

      Dave: I wish I could agree with you there. But, my son has just found a wonderful school for his six year old son. It is not actually a CHRISTIAN RUN school, but they DO run the school on Christian PRINCIPLES and have refused to instigate the LEFTS AGENDA.

      • Dave

        Name the school district and address of the school and is it actually “public(gov’t run) school”? Incidently, I’m not necessarily promoting “christian schools”, I just have no use for our gov’t. run schools.

        • a1NannaGail2u

          Dave, As this is a gvmnt run school and they are not doing as the gvmnt says, I don’t want to get them in trouble, so I can’t give you the name, or district. BUT, we ARE monitoring what goes on at the school and when I am well enough, I will start going to the school regularly and spend my time helping as a voluntary Aide. That way, I can monitor more closely. Any WHIFF of the homosexual agenda, or islamist teaching and I will pull them out of the school right then and there. Had a friend do the same with her daughters children. She saw what THAT SCHOOL was doing, called her daughter. Her daughter left work immediately, came to school and took the children out, right there and then.

          • Dave

            I have a problem with your story , if this is indeed a “public school” then it would be no secret as to their defiance of the gov’t mandates. That being said, the gov’t would already be aware of this and you would not be protecting them from getting in trouble by not revealing their identity.

          • a1NannaGail2u

            Dave, it sounds to me like you are fishing for information, so that you can pass it on to the gvmnt. I would NEVER give out the name of ANY SCHOOL, be it gvmnt run, privately run, or a Christian School, if I thought there were ANY chance of getting said school into trouble.
            This school is full of Christian teachers who all feeel the same way and as a Christian myself, I refuse to do anything to cause them harm.
            If by chance, you ARE a LEFTIST TROLL, PLEASE, go back to your little cubby whole. You will get nothing from me.

  • KittyKittyKit

    I took my step son’s, who were totally failing in public schools, and started home-schooling them. They went from ALL “F”s to ALL “B and B+” in the very first year. They were required, by law, to have to be tested with the same test the public shools take.

    Home schooling is NOT rocket science. Read the book or lesson, take the quiz. Got the answers wrong, re-read the text, re-take the quiz………they almost ALWAYS will get the answers right because they don’t want to have to re-read the lesson a third time. And once they realized they COULD actually pay attention to what they were reading the FIRST time, they didn’t have to do it a SECOND time……..and they were able to go out and play a lot sooner, as well as be smarter, better educated, and responsible young boys. That’s a WIN-WIN for both of us.

    I taught both of my daughters, from my first marriage, how to read ANYTHING and EVERYTHING you could put in front of them before they were 4 years old…..and it was NO SWEAT and STRAIN and NEVER took longer than 10 minutes a day to do it.

    I taught them 3 letters at a time, that’s all. Making them pronounce the long an short sounds of each letter. We used those little plastic, magnetic letters you can stick on the fridge. ANY PARENT can take a MAXIMUM of 10 minutes with their child and teach them the a-b-c s and SOUNDING-OUT words two or tree letters at a time. YOU DON’T NEED teachers at school for your kids to learn. They will learn QUICKER and BETTER from their own parents in almost all cases.

    For a child, knowing how to read BEFORE they even enter kindergarten is a HUGE advantage in their comprehension level.

    There are 2 OCCUPATIONS upon which the American Private Sector ABSOLUTELY WASTE money paying taxes for. EDUCATION, and POLICE. That doesn’t mean they’re NOT nice folks, because the vast majority of them are. It’s just that we DON’T need their OCCUPATIONS because they are DISCONNECTED from reality and end up thinking they’re something SPECIAL and that they are more smart and honorable than the rest of the citizenry……….what a crock. Look at our country…………the very HIGHEST EDUCATED make the laws and decisions, that overthrows our national and state constitutions and robs the citizens of their RIGHTS, all the while being PROTECTED by POLICE who are too dim-witted to do the ONLY THING THEY ARE HIRED TO DO, and that is PROTECT and DEFEND……..NOT THE PEOPLE, but the U.S. Constiution from ALL enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC. Neither occupation fulfills it’s mandate even 1%. It’s a TOTAL WASTE of tax-payer funds.

    The danger to America is not Barack Hussein Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.

    For those who understand, no explanation is needed.

    For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.

      priceless.

    • a1NannaGail2u

      Actually, I don’t believe obama DID win. There have been many reports by Poll Watchers of fraudulent votes. They reported many, many of the machines folks were voting on, were changing to a DEFAULT VOTE, if/when people were voting for ROMNEY and changed the vote to obammy.

      ON top of this, how would you explain one State, OREGON, getting 108% of the ‘legal voting age population of the state’ (as opposed to the entire population of the State)? I believe that in Florida, they received 141% of THAT States ‘legal voting age population’, can you explain THAT to me?
      That doesn’t even touch the tip of the iceberg.
      What about the MILLIONS OF ILLEGALS, who registered on ELECTION DAY, which I believe is ALSO ILLEGAL, (because obammy gave them temporary AMNESTY AND WORK PERMITS), and voted. Probably not only ONCE EITHER.
      How about the number of DECEASED who probably voted, because of course, the CURRENT REGIME REFUSED TO ALLOW THE VOTER ROLLS TO BE PURGED OF THE DECEASED. WHY? So the ILLEGALS COULD VOTE UNDER THE DECEASED’s NAME, as well as their own.
      I could go on all day, but I think I have made my point. It was all set up from the day after he FIRST WAS ELECTED.
      I guess DIRTY MONEY ALWAYS TALKS.
      If I were you, I would slink back to my dark MARXIST cubby whole and be quiet.

    Skip, I agree with your premise but not to the end that we need a new electorate but instead a new remnant who will be in complete submission to the one and only Electorate.

    One of the reasons we are in the mess we find ourselves is that the framers rejected Yahweh as Electorate (Deuteronomy 17:15, etc.) and replaced Him with a human electorate, the vast majority of whom walk in destruction’s broad way (Matthew 7:13).

    Until we (Christians in particular) identify and repent of ours and our forefathers’ government of, by, and for the people, established upon the fickle edicts (AKA traditions of men–Matthew 15:6-9) and return to our true 17th-century Christian forbearers who established governments of, by, and for Yahweh, based upon His immutable morality as codified in His commandments, statutes, and judgments, we can breed like rabbits, etc. and it will get us nowhere but where we already are or worse.

    American liberty is being reserved for a remnant. In 2052, the states of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota and North Dakota will separate from the corrupt and inept North American Union and will form a reconstituted, God fearing, freedom focused United States of America. Within 5 years they will begin to colonize the Moon and Mars and will grow enough food as to feed their neighbors in the NAU. I have a novel which outlines the events described.

    The debasement of, traditional and classical knowledge, individualism and independent thinking is necessary if a government is to control its citizens and convince them to accept an ideology that a legitimate education would cause them to reject.
    This debasement must be fought against at every turn.
    Besides Lenin, here is another example of the forced Liberalism being promoted in our public schools.
    Johann Gottlieb Fichte, 1762-1814 philosopher and psychologist promoted atheism and is considered the father of German nationalism stated the following:
    “Education should aim at destroying free will so that after pupils are thus schooled they will be incapable throughout the rest of their lives of thinking or acting otherwise than as their school masters would have wished … The social psychologist of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for more than one generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen.”·
    For home schoolers who feel they are weak in some subjects; there are free on line classes available in a huge variety of classes at the Khan Academy.

  • Andrea

    As a public school teacher, I’d like to offer a few thoughts. First, I’m often “stuck” with teenagers that misbehave to the extreme. I teach some team taught classes, which is a mixture of special education and at-risk students. Generally, it’s the at-risk students that make my job (and their peers’ job) difficult. The adminstration is reluctant to kick out these kids, because the almighty dollar is connected to their attendance. A number of the problem-causing students I have this term are bounced around from one family member to the next and then to foster care. Their parents are in jail or have drug or alcohol problems, or are abusive or neglectful. I bet you can imagine what kind of support I get from home. Way too often, even from the parents of “average” students, I hear, “I don’t know what to do…s/he doesn’t listen to me.” So, my point is this –many of the problems with public education stem from two issues. The first is a lack of parenting for too many kids. The second is that public schools, by law, must provide a free education for ALL kids, even those that are violent and/or out of control. So why am I still teaching in a public school? For now, I’m still giving it my all, but I’m working on my “plan b.”

    • Dave

      Let little Johnny or Suzy go to public school and claim mommy or daddy is “abusing” them and you teachers are the first to turn the parent in. You public school teachers also send them home with a “bill of rights” undermining parental authority, then have the gall to whine and !@#$# when they are uncontrollable. The public school system has perpetuated this situation. The authorities do not hammer parents that are actually abusing their kids, but relentlessly pound away at parents that are really trying to keep their kids under control.

      • Andrea

        That’s a very wide-sweeping statement you make Dave. It’s a little disappointing. Notice I didn’t say ALL parents lack parenting skills, because that’s not true. Nor is it true that ALL teachers do what you claim. I’m not sure what I did personally to deserve so little respect.

        • Dave

          Nor did I say that ALL teachers. You commented on parents of “average” students and I’m pointing out one of the sources of the problem. I’m sick and tired of the parent always taking the hit for the kids bad behaviour. Especially when the law ties our hands behind our backs and punishes us when we do try to discipline. I had to deal with this !@#$ for 22 years. The situation was so bad that it took intervention from our governor’s office on my behalf to get an end put to it. Public school teachers do not do a lot to back a parent, but expect the full faith and backing of the parent. As far as “respect” is concerned, it is earned and then maintained not given arbitrarily. I would put forth that the word “consideration”, would be more fitting in your last sentence.

          • a1NannaGail2u

            Dave, I have to say, in many instances Andrea is right. Many teachers do NOT give parents any RESPECT. I have dealt with good teachers and bad teachers. But still do not understand why they can not deal with parents with RESPECT AND CONSIDERTION.

      • MARYANN33

        So true. The cafeteria worker took my daughter home and kept her a few months. Police said that was fine. I had rules and my daughter did not want to obey, so she just moved in with anyone who would feel sorry for the poor thing. The worker that “saved her” did not want custody when the state offered it..She knew her by then. Try to raise a child when they learn the “poor me” ropes….We did not have the authority to raise this child. The state took that away. She is still struggling on her own. and making problems for all who get involved. Her husband is devastated. She ruined his life and moved on to another.

            She may Maryann. Our son had a friend in school, whose parents both died when he was very young. He was bounced around from one ostrer home to another or several years.
            Eventually, our son asked me i we could help him.
            I went and talked to his foster parents, with whom my son had formed a friendly relationship, and told them what I had been hearing from this boy and from our son.
            It turned out, they were happy for the offer from us to help with this boy, because they couldn’t control him, but didn’t want to throw him out on the streets.
            Eventually, the wife in this couple, just couldn’t take it any more and, I was standing outside on their lawn talking to her and her husband, while she was standing at the window upstairs. She told this boy to do something and actually was yelling at him. He came out of the house and was about to just “run away”. The woman started screaming at him and abusing him. I know she had put up with a lot, but still felt she shouldn’t be screaming abuse at him.
            My son and I went home, then received a call about four hours later to ask if this boy was with US. We had not seen him since we left for home.
            Nnext day DHS called us and asked we had seen/heard from him, we hadn’t, but THEY couldn’t find him
            Our son went looking for him, found him a couple of hours later. I called DHS and told them, as he refused to go back to his foster home, asked if he could stay with us for a few days to calm down. They said yes. The police had already known us and had told them we were a good living family.
            Anyway long story short, DHS asked us to take him in as he was sixteen, so we did. He refused to do what we advised him to do with his parents Social Security money, (put a certain amount in a bank account and live off the rest), wouldn’t come home from school or do his homework. So, just before his seventeenth birthday, DHS advised us to have him emancipated and they would help us get it through the courts. We did. The Judge told him, a day would come when we would no longer take his crap. He didn’t believe it and got the shock of his life when we threw him out.
            This boy has been couch hopping for years. We did let him stay here a couple of times after that, but, the last time had to call poilce to get him out of our home, as he was threatening to kill me. The police officer was on the phone when he made another threatagainst my life and we had police cars everywhere.
            This young man has used so many people. Now, no one wants him. But he still hasn’t learned.

      If parents would teach right from wrong to their children instead of letting them do their thing, and the children having no restrictions, there might be a better class of educated that are graduating (well some of them). I was there, I saw it. Most children are not included in outings, because they cannot control them. Now whose fault is that……..Parents…….start disciplining your kids…….you are not their friend, you are their parent…..Lay down some rules when they are young, if your want good students and well behaved kids.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/Z4GOVL5ROIKKFPR6A7UO4QJOIY BeBe

        You have to be with your child in order to teach them right from wrong. Children are raised in daycare where they are fed, cleaned and allowed to play. Many parents don’t have much of a choice but, they still feel guilty not spending any time with their child. One thing that will spoil a child for sure is indulgence by the parent from a sense of guilt.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/Z4GOVL5ROIKKFPR6A7UO4QJOIY BeBe

      Yes, you are so right. There is a lack of parenting when the child is in a room all day with only one non-parent adult and about 35 other kids. They are not going to learn good behavior from a bunch of other kids and it’s difficult for one adult to do something traditionally done one on one by the parents. The parents work all day sometime 6 days a week and come home at around 5:30. They then prepare the evening meal and get ready for the next day. They are able to spend about an hour with their child, if they are lucky. That is no life for anyone. With two parents in the home, at least one parent gets to spend some time with their child. With single parent homes the situation is pretty grim. The fact is teachers spend more time with any child than the parents and yet they blame conditions in the home for their problems in the classroom.

    Actually, polling data show that there are more conservatives than liberals, and more independents than liberals. THEY (liberals) are the minority, but they are much louder, more aggressive and insistant, and they have the media, which is 90% democrat, on their side. Liberals resort to abortion much more often than conservatives or independents do. If abortion remains legal, liberals may very well abort themselves into political insignificance. I don’t think they realize that, since your average liberal is not a long-range thinker and generally thinks no further ahead than next week. Liberals are also knee-jerk reactonaries, who, because they are neither long-range nor logical thinkers, never consider the consequences of their actions via the “ripple effect”. Resultantly, The Law Of Unintened Consequences bites liberals right square in the hindparts time after time.

He does nothing to honor our country, redesigns our flag, takes OUR flag off Air Force One, & is disrespectul to our GOD. Muslim parties in the WH, and no one complains. He hasn’t honored the military & felt they should not vote in the election, but lets illegals.
    He has done nothing right since 2009. He is trying to spend all the money (like sending 60 million to ASIA or is it billion), and has increased our deficit 3X or is it 4X, what any other President has done. He has actually done nothing for this country in the past 4 years, and will do everything in his power to bring the USA to its knees in the next 4. Down w/ the Devils son…..Beezlebub, aka known as BOZO.

    Every society is only as strong as the dominant number of functional families. Social institutions, including church and certainly civil government, are only available to assist in teaching our children. The primary responsibility still rests with the parents. Families are ordained to be miniature governments, the “building blocks” of a society. Thus the stroger the “blocks” the stronger the society. Still, for what it’s worth, I believe that our lovong, compassionate God can intercede.

    That’s too bad Mitt was seventh on your list. I suppose serial adulterer Newt was higher? Or power abusing Santorum or was Ron Paul at the top of your list? Ron Paul firmly believes in legalizing drugs and prostitution. Although Mitt is not a “Christian” I’d rather have a neighborhood of Mormans that Newts Santoriums of Pauls.

    MItt had possibilities … he certainly adhered to general Christian principles and since I believe in prayer, praying for him might have gotten him saved. BTW did you know that Mitt FOCUSED on FAMILY and Christian values? He wanted PARENTS to step up and do their jobs as PARENTS.

    Having babies for the sake of having babies is crazy. God controls that and it is our job as PARENTS to raise them – not the STATE. I totally agree with PARENTS needing to MAKE THE TIME to raise their own kids in the ways of God.

    We’re not going to outbreed the Mexican and African immigrants. After all, they’re doing it on our dime. Let’s stop avoiding the obvious about what is going to have to be done. They’re doing it Greece: the Golden Dawn gives aid to Greeks but none to foreigners – and the Greek Church is on board. And yes, if the Immigrants don’t self deport they will be deported if the Golden Dawn assumes power.

  • BlueViolets

    This is simplistic to some but in reading about our founding fathers one thing stood out to me. They all seemed to be taught to read by a family member and the book they learned to read from was the Bible. It did seem to hold them in good stead for their whole lives.

    Our ‘public Education system” has been corrupted by liberal professor’s in liberal colleges and universities. We now have libterd’s as the teacher’s in the school’s and God and Country,Duty and Sacrifice are looked down upon by these soppesed teacher’s. Even good teacher’s are forced to follow the liberal ideals of education so it isn’t all the teacher’s that are wrong it’s the whole dang system that is wrong. Home Schooling is a good and viable means of teaching the truth and the difference between right and wrong, which our children will need as times will be i predict get much worse before they get better. I am not sure at this point if we really can “save America” from itself. That doesn’t mean i am just going to roll over and die for the liberals to take over, just that it is going to prove to be a very hard fought battle to do so. Here’s hoping our children can indeed be the true turning point in the fight to save America

    Comical article, but filled with much truth. The problem is that Obama is about to give citizenship to 20 million plus, illegal immigrants, who 90% are die-hard liberal voters, which doesn’t make the strategy of a conservative population increase for the next 18 years look to be very efficient for the goals we want to achieve. All that Skip Coryell wants to achieve, use to be the standard in our country and schools, but now only exists in our religious and private schools, which could make a big difference in achieving the goals outlined by Skip if parents could only use them, for most parents haven’t the time to homeschool, or the money to send their children to a religious or private school. But if parents got enough people together and demanded from their politicians a voucher system to give all an equal opportunity to get a good education, then you could use those religious and private schools to accomplish the goals that Skip has detailed to better our country, and it would also decrease the tax burden for local and county taxes tremendously, for religious and private schools fund their own facilities and teachers, not the tax payers. This would not only give the children a better education, as all test scores and college entrance exams prove, but would also instill morality among the children who attend these religious and private schools, as tests and polls also prove. Vouchers would cause a more civil, moral, and better educated society, as well as save parents from some taxes they may not be able to afford. The only problem with this is that the public liberal indoctrinators and their unions, would never go along with it and fight it tooth and nail, because they see losing students in their forced public system as losing jobs and political power, as well as unions losing members, and most importantly the members’ dues. Unions cause laziness, inefficiency, non-produtivity, and unaccountability, and all this is proven by how far our school system has fallen in the ranks of the rest of the world, to 32nd, when once, before teachers’ unions, we were number 1, many years ago. If you only use the educational statistics of our religious and private schools, we would then be ranked in the top 5 in the world, quite a difference. But we should still raise our children as Skip Coryell suggests, for their benefits as well as ours, but mostly for the benefit of our society and country, it’s just easier with a religious or private education for our children, and affordable if we can get a voucher system passed across the USA, one state at a time.

    “On the other hand, you can have a good time with your wife, make some babies,
    teach them solid Christian values…”

    Let me say amen to that!

    It is only through our diligent work under God to advance the Kingdom Of Christ our Lord over all realms of life and thought, that we have any hope of success. Don’t misunderstand me, God’s purpose will be fulfilled one way or the other, but, as His people, don’t we want to be part of it?

    Indeed, obedience to what God has commanded in His Word(yes, including the Law which, incidentally, Jesus our Lord said He came NOT to abolish–see Matthew 5:17) is what will bring us increased blessing and dominion in the broader world outside our own doors. One of God’s commandments is, of course “be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it”(see Genesis), which necessitates that we actually BEGET children and, as per Proverbs, raise them “in the fear of the Lord”. The Great Commission instructs us to “baptize all nations in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all things whatsoever I have commanded you”(see Matt 28), and one place we absolutely must do this is WITH OUR OWN CHILDREN. If refuse to even beget children and teach them to love and obey God, how can we expect to teach others?

    It is, of course, through both of these processes, teaching our children and witnessing to others that the Church of God will grow in size, scope, and influence, but this is a long-term mission requiring serious commitment. Do we have what it takes?

    May God strengthen us all to obey Him in all things. May His glory be our overriding objective, and may we never swerve there-from. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

    • http://www.monster-island.net/ kushibo

      Do this. And if you end up with financial troubles from all those mouths to feed, do not hesitate to use the resources provided by the government to help you raise those kids with good values. That’s what it’s there for.

  • vanguard7

    This article and the writer is chock full of wisdom. I’ve been saying all along that this country started down the path of self-destruction in the 70’s when it became the norm (even expected) that both parents become professionals. And then in 1976 Jimmy Carter happened and one of the legacies of his was his creation of the Federal Dept. of Education which took the business of managing our educational needs out of the hands of each individual state and put it in the hands of the government. Now I realize I may sound like a bit of a male chauvinist here but face it….weren’t we much better off when there was only one breadwinner in the family while their spouse took care of the home and was there for fheir kids when they got home from school? Families used to have normal, sit-down, family meals together usually at the same time each night and kids had someone to answer to when they got home. It was a time where, if you lived in a relatively small town, that you didn’t have to lock your doors when you left the house and you could park your cars overnight without having to lock them up much less instally any car alarms on them. You didn’t have to be suspiscous or weary of strangers near as much and kids were able to play outside after dark (perhaps playing ‘kick-the-can’ with the neighbor kids) and were able to ride their bikes to a lake 3 or 4 miles away for a day of swimming. Economically speaking, did anyone else from that time ever notice how the price of goods essentially doubled in the 70’s. I attribute that fact to women becoming professionals and household incomes essentially doubling as a result. Instead of a household getting by on, say, $40 thousand per year they were suddenly making $80 thousand or more. I remember in 1971 or 1972 you could buy a brand-new Dodge Duster with all the bells and whistles for just under $3,000. In 1975, a similar style car (I bought a brand new 1975 Monza 2+2) cost $7,500. This was about the time that young couples got started in professional careers where both were making high salaries and put off on having children until later in life. The automakers saw this and, surprise!!!, the price of a car practically doubled overnight. And this was despite the fact that gas prices had shot through the roof as a result of the oil embargo by OPEC during those years. When I started working at a gas station when I was 13 (like 1971) gas per gallon was .11 9/10’s. within a year it had more than doubled to around .25 9/10’s and another year later it was like 45 cents or more per gallon. Oh! And teachers back then had the respect of the students and were able to enforce discipline in the classroom. If a child’s behavior got to the point that the parents had to be called in, the parents’ believed the teacher(s)/principle and then the child would have to answer to their parents when they got home. Nowadays, teachers aren’t allowed to discipline kids for fear of some lawsuit. And if the parents are called in, they will likely say “What? Not OUR kid! He wouldn’t do something like that and he’s always been such an angel at home or around family and friends. You just don’t like our kid and have it in for him.” Yep….times have really changed in just a few short decades. And people wonder why we are having problems with kids and young adults like we do today. Time to bring GOD back into the classroom and kick the bleeding-heart liberal/socialist teachers out of our education system. And while we’re at it, get rid of the teacher’s Unions too. Get rid of ALL UNIONS!

    See, this sort of rhetoric is in part why we lost the election. Why, you’ll ask? It alienated most of the independents like myself and my family. Being agnostic libertarians we voted for Romney because we knew he was our only hope, and didn’t let our bitterness get in the way of doing the right thing. But please put yourself in our shoes: how would you like to be dismissed and told, even if not directly, that you’re a bad person simply because you don’t believe in the Bible or go to church?

    Look, my husband and me have been together for 20 years. We have a strong, solid marriage. Our kids are great kids. We’ve never been on government assistance. Being a child of cold war immigrants from Eastern Europe I HATE liberalism and socialism with a passion. We believe in small government, personal responsibility, in working hard and having integrity, and we’re sure to pass these beliefs on to our children. Yes, they go to public school, simply because we don’t have the luxury of NOT working in order to have them here at home 24/7. But we keep on top of everything they’re learning, and we’re involved with their school life. They continue learning long after they come home from school. Public schools are a symptom, not the disease. The disease are bad parents who write off their children and let the school do all the work. OF COURSE they end up with brainwashed drones!

    We love this country, and if a time came when (God forbid) we had to pick up arms and fight for its preservation, we would do so without a doubt, and we would stand with people like you and your readers, Mr. Coryell, because we have strong moral compass and will always do the right thing. It’s not about Republicans vs. Democrats any longer, it’s about right vs. wrong, saving America vs. destroying America, good vs. evil.

    Please open your minds to the fact that there are many good Americans who believe the same things you do… except they don’t go to church. By telling us that we’re the problem with this country because we’re not Christians, while casually discarding our decency, hard work, and strong love for this country, you’re hurting no one but yourselves. United we stand, divided we fall. Don’t divide, unite.

  • kathin9

    I agree with the article but the list of possible candidates was without a doubt the worst, Romney was a man of character, a family man, a man who raised five fine sons, so to throw him under the bus with the “jist” of this article wasn’t exactly a good analogy. The lefties are doing such a good job of confusing well brought up children that things are going to only get harder. Our son went to Catholic School, a hard nose Catholic school and thus understands his history, math, science, English, all in a great atmosphere, and we aren’t even Catholic. My husband and I went without to afford this, but in the end we have a fine son, a well educated son, and none of the ideals of the public school system. A son who believes in family, and doesn’t believe in the “anything goes” society.
