Whenever there is a great crisis or a great tragedy in the United States, the collectivists immediately try to use it for their own political advantage. As Rahm Emanuel once said, "you never want a serious crisis to go to waste". So it should be no surprise that liberals are doing their best to exploit the horrible tragedy that just happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. 20 small children and 6 adults were savagely murdered, and instead of appropriately mourning this great loss, liberals are in a feeding frenzy and are falling all over one another as they rush to exploit this horrible tragedy for political gain. Some of the most horrible things that you can imagine are being said about gun owners and about the NRA. They are being called murderers, terrorists and "the new KKK". Some are even suggesting that they should be shot or rounded up and put into camps. It is absolutely disgusting to watch what is going on, and the mainstream media is just eating all of this up. The mainstream media loves any story that they can use to demonize those that are opposed to the collectivist agenda.
Fortunately, the rampant demonization of gun owners is only (Read More....)
Billions of dollars is being poured into an effort to reduce population growth all over the world, and most people do not even know that it is happening. These efforts are often promoted under such labels as "family planning", "abortion rights" and "public health programs", but the primary goal is always to get women to have less children. This population control agenda has millions upon millions of supporters all over the planet and it is gaining even more adherents with each passing day. It is being taught in colleges, universities and schools all over the globe. It is being promoted by radical humanists who are completely and totally convinced that the core crisis that humanity is facing today is that there are way too many people living on this planet. They fully believe that overpopulation is the root cause of most of our economic, social, political and environmental problems. In fact, the truth is that many of them actually believe that they are literally in a "life or death" race to save the planet. Many of the "true believers" are entirely convinced (Read More....)
How stupid are American high school students today? Unfortunately, the truth is that our government schools are doing a worse job than most parents would dare to imagine. Not only are most of our high school students completely unprepared for college, the reality is that most of them have not even been equipped with the necessary skills that they need to function at a very basic level in the real world. Today, a surprising number of high school students are simply unable to fill out a job application, write a readable essay or balance a checkbook. If you can believe it, 18.6 percent of all men between the ages of 25 and 34 still live with their parents. In America today there are millions of children that have never grown up. Our government schools have failed them and we have failed them. They are spoiled, lazy and have very few skills to contribute to society. It is a national disgrace.
According to a survey conducted a while back by the National Geographic Society, only 37 percent of all Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 can find the nation of Iraq on a (Read More....)
When I was younger, friends and acquaintances told me that I should consider becoming a teacher, because they saw that I related well with children. And, beginning in the 1980s, I began hearing that schools were “begging” and “crying” for teachers. However, as I was growing up, I hated school. For that and other reasons, I didn't begin to consider teaching as a profession until 1990.
I left high school in 1973. Between 1973 and 1990, I went from job to job, with most of those jobs having to do with automobile repair. I also stumbled into a B.S. in agriculture (soil science emphasis), with a minor in biology, and an A.A.S. in automobile technology.
In the 1980s, the State of Texas asked businessman H. Ross Perot to help to reform the education system in Texas. One of the proposed reforms was intended to help people in other professions to “streamline” the process of becoming certified as teachers (partly by considering job experience as credit for some teaching courses, as applicable). Apparently, many people who wished to change professions to teaching hesitated, because of all of the hours of classes required to become certified. This proposed “streamlining” process initiated by Ross Perot could have—should have—helped me become a public school teacher, but, as you will read, it didn't.
In 1990, I sent a letter to (Read More....)
