    I have been involved in private schools on three continents, public schools in 3 US states, and homeschooling in 4 US states.

    I’ve yet to see a private school with ANYWHERE NEAR the careless, lackadaisical, utterly devoid-of-morals attitudes I experienced as a professional contractor with the public school systems.

    I witnessed downright illegal actions being COVERED UP by admins.
    I’ve witnessed teachers (HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS) who couldn’t read.
    I’ve witnessed teachers knowingly allowing their elementary kids to view porn.
    I’ve witnessed admins acting PURELY on racist (anti-white) grounds.
    I’ve seen students punished for trying.

    I’ve never ever seen any of this in a private school. Nor can I imagine it ever in a homeschool setting.

    But yes, I’m sure that out there, SOMEWHERE, we’ll find the unsocialized homechool kid that everybody’s talking about….

    My kid did a presentation at his weekly homeschooling workshop the other week (every kid is required to do a public presentation weekly at our workshops – helps them learn good communication skills).

    So he decided to do his on his favorite gun… complete with pics. stats. accuracy….

    somehow I don’t think that would’ve gone over so well at the elementary school across the street….

    yup… a case of the LEO doing his job well, covering his tail with video, and still electing to not can her for the false accusation.
    I’m sorry, but she NEEDS to get some additional time for that. too many women HAVE suffered for a false accusation to simply be ignored.

    Investigate it FULLY, and if she’s guilty, charge her and punish her.

    YES.. a resounding YES! have been involved in homeschooling in 6 states over a decade – - the difference is STUNNING. homeschool kids in general are FAR ahead of public school kids, when it comes to socialization.

    The real problem (which your average pub school teacher never sees) is that the public school kids are ALWAYS segregated to age group and class groups (by class), so they never get the chance to learn how to interact with other age groups.

    Dammit Matt…..
    Just when I’m ready to write you off as some uneducated self-infatuated neanderthal without a hint of social etiquette, you pen something like this article.

    As a proud homeschool dad, I have heard the same tired and worn-out arguments repeatedly: “socialization” is so key….. Good lord…

    Gee, if only my 11yr old could properly socialize with the other kids.. Then maybe he’d be capable of loosing his virginity, picking up an STD, getting high, getting arrested, learning how to properly fight, how to properly curse, disrespect authority, and perhaps even get a girl knocked up…

    Alas, my kid is woefully undersocialized, and has been repressed in all these so-important areas. My puritanistic mindset has forced him to learn the history of the US, memorize every state & capital this week, memorize the multiplication charts (up to 15 squared, because well, his mom and I are JUST.THAT.TERRIBLE), and yeah, we force him to use proper terms when communicating with adults (you know, “yes ma’am” and “yes sir” – - terribly repressive stuff like that)….

    Hopefully someone from DOE or CDC or some other helpful agency will come along and help us learn how to help “the system” because like you, we just don’t give a fat rat’s ass about the system, when it comes to raising our offspring….

    uh….. from reading the exact wording OF THE LAW, the man was legally entitled to be there, busking (Playing for money), and he was unlawfully detained and unlawfully arrested.

    It’s becoming more apparent why NYC feels the need to disallow all firearms – here in the south a cop would’ve been in jeopardy of his life for illegal actions against a person without merit, like that goon did.

    Perhaps that’s why the laws are followed a bit more closely elsewhere?

    Agreed… The Blaze has some pretty pathetic editing action, most of the time..

    That said, my FIRST job out of college was working in the PR dept at a university… My *FIRST* publication, yup, I misspelled Public Relations – left out the “L”….. humiliated.. never did that again….

  • October 2, 2014 at 4:21pm

    yup…. LEO’s aren’t always known for thinkin ahead…..

    cute as can be, can also kick yer nuts flat….. in less time than you can see..

  • October 1, 2014 at 6:02pm

    Yup…

    But Holder could take notes–this is what you do when you’re a dismal failure..

    Would’ve been good if they’d used a truck that actually HAD AN ENGINE IN IT, as the test unit.

    Looks awesome on video, stopping cold, but that extra 1100lb of a cummins block, moving at say 40mph translates into dozens of TONS of additional force.

    makes me wonder if it was legit…..

    Pucker up, Lance… Hope ya recover quick..

    Hope the store puts a can on the counter to raise money for him.. he’s gonna need help.. There’s NEVER a time when you shoot someone and it doesn’t stick with you. But he did the right thing, and should not feel guilt.

    While it saddens me to see churches in suits against each other, the TRUTH and righteousness must be maintained.

    Unfortunately, the PC(USA) has been heading down the winding highway of “whatever we feel like this week is ok” for 4 decades, rather than simply sticking to God’s Word.

    My family comes from a long heritage of PC-USA preachers – in fact this church was originally planted by one of my ancestors. But today the PC-USA is *NOTHING* like a church which actually reaches the lost, and if they were to encounter Christ on earth today, I suspect the PC-USA would reject Him.

    It’s a sad state of affairs we’re in – far too interested in politically correct horse excrement, when the world is dying and going to hell all around, for lack of someone to show them the way.

    I dunno.. This whole thing stinks to high heaven. yes, the kid had a history. yes, he was the suspect in a robbery. Yes, he was NOT cooperating with the police.
    However, if a guy has his arms raised, you DON’T SHOOT HIM.

    That said, I don’t know that I buy this as definitive.. there’s footage of a cop with his face bashed in.. If that was the cop who shot the guy, I’m kinda doubting the CNN story (not that they have a reputation to defend anyway)..

    “We need the iPhone of guns”

    No thanks… How often does your “smartphone” NOT work, need rebooting, drop signal, randomly make a call, or just disconnect FROM a call?

    Yeah, I’ll stick with my “dumb as a box of rocks” dumbgun, thanks very much…

    Cummings has been in cahoots on this since the beginning…

    ARREST HIM & Holder.. NOW

    that is all.

    A bit disconcerting to me that the news puts the homeowners face (and that of his minor daughter!) on the web…

    THE GUY IS A VICTIM! And they’re putting him up to be victimized again, potentially for years! F’in idiots….

    The crook? oh well… saved the state a buncha money!

    Probably so….. the gravy train just stopped… and he ain’t gonna get another ride……ooops…

    Perhaps others can learn from her & his mistakes?

    Let me recommend you (guys) learn how to argue rather than punch, and gals – learn to not nag your husbands into a fight…..

    crappy food, good service = good tip
    good food, crappy service = bad tip
    average food, average service = average tip
