It's called the "we are in control - don't you dare fight us or we will make you pay" game. I had a psycho social worker assigned to my case when my ex-husband was arrested for molesting my children. No, I didn't know about it and, yes, I turned him in. Still, they went to the court and told the judge that they were afraid I'd manipulate the kids and got a court order to remove them. I fought them for three months to get my kids back and over a year to get back complete custody. In the meantime, the social worker lied - outright lied - in court and told the judge that I said and did things that simply never happened. Since it was always just her and I and my kids at visitation, it was easy for her to claim this garbage and, of course, the judge always believed her over me. I finally had to make sure that my mother or another adult was always present and to tape all conversations with the social worker. That's how I convinced the judge to give my kids back to me. However, it took two other social workers who heard her lies to send a report to the judge before he gave me back complete custody. Unfortunately, mine was not an isolated case. Many social workers are basically mad with the power they have over other people's lives.

Happy Birthday Glenn! You have changed my life like I know you have changed the lives of thousands. My daughter turned 10 today and she is also a big fan of yours! You have earned all the happiness you have!

OK – this monster needs to be put down. But where was the mom? My 9 year old would not be alone in a best buy.
"But where was the mom?"
Driving the pick up truck?
Mom drops off daughter she doesn't want in a bathroom and tells her to stay there till she gets back. Mom leaves to pick up the hit man and returns. Hit man gets out of passenger door and goes in side. Hit man stands there watching the bathroom long enough for anyone inside to finish up and leave. Hit man goes in and can't finish the job. He goes back out, thinks about it and decides to continue but seeing employees are around he leaves. Tells Mom the hit is done and collects his money.
Could be. Most anything else doesn't make sense to me. Time will tell.
Yeah, life in prison for this dude, and let the other prisoners know what a monster he is. But, I agree. I have a 9 year old daughter. I let her leave my side now when we're in stores, but never my sight. The world is too full of crazies to not make an effort to protect her.

Thank you Billy and The Blaze for introducing me to this website!
I go back to Ben Franklin – “Make them uncomfortable in their poverty” It is all that needs to be said.

Glenn is doing what God directed that he do. He is calling out the RINO’s, the Progressives, the Socialists. He is ONE MAN…he can only do so much. and Race is only a factor because the Progressives are making it a factor.

If we don’t wake up, turn OFF the Reality Shows, and hold this Govt responsible we WILL become what we despise. This president (and he doesn’t get a capital P) wants to put America in her place. Glenn talks about finding the next George Washington – but unfortunately for him and his family I think HE is the next GW. God BLess you Glenn.

I watched this yesterday and again with my husband last night. I live in Illinois – very progressive! I WILL be homeschooling next year!
Finally a smart one, thank you thank you thank you. Homeschooling was the best thing that my mother ever did for me. Freedom of thought has never been more important and it has never faced a greater threat here in America than it does today. I hope at least one person will learn from your example but even if no one does it warms my heart and gives me hope to know that at least there are some people who are really taking some of the actions that need to be taken in order to fight back against what is happening. May it spread like fire, and again thank you:)
BurdenedSoul - there are a lot of people pulling their kids out of public school and homeschooling them. Personally speaking, that's not an option for us. I cannot afford homeschool for 5 kids. It's just not an option right now. In the meantime, I fight what I know is wrong and stand behind things that are right.
So, it's not that every person choosing to fight against CCSS instead of pulling their kids out of school isn't 'smart'. It's just that perhaps homeschooling is NOT an option for everyone. I am the breadwinner in the family - if my income goes away, it's safe to assume that our home will too. Or perhaps our vehicles.
Believe me...I truly want to homeschool my kids.
I completely understand where you are coming from but please consider that my mother raised and educated me and my two younger siblings by herself after my father ran out on her and denied us child support. This is not matter of money this is a matter of far you are willing to go to do the right thing and what you understand about how to teach a child in the right way. Systemically forcing books down their throats is not much better than what they are already being subject to. The educational system in this country takes 12 years to "educate" a child because what they are really teaching them is how to avoid and even fear the idea of thinking for themselves. They are not teaching them anything but how not to learn. To put your children into the hands of this system is a failing on your part for which there is no excuse. Most kids benefit more from 15 minutes of recess than a day of school. If you want proof of this then just look at how much faster a 2 year old learns as appose to a 10 year old. As the brain grows the ability to take in more information should grow with it and in the absence of undue pressure it does.
Technically a two-year old would absorb more information than a ten-year old because of the way our brains form in the first five years of our lives. (It's really remarkable at how rapid our brain develops in those first five years - other than in the womb, it doesn't grow that fast at any other point in our life. To look at some of our government officials, I'd say theirs stopped around 2 years old.)
However, I understand completely your point.
You said, "To put your children into the hands of this system is a failing on your part for which there is no excuse." To which I say, I agree. At first your comment pissed me off - essentially, you're telling me I'm failing at being a parent - but I realized it only bothered me because it held truth to it. Gotta love those moments.
I will continue to fight the CCSS - whether my kids are in the public school system or in our living room.
As a side note: Your mom sounds like a resourceful and wonderful woman - I bet you're proud of her. :)
First let me say that I absolutely agree with you regarding the physical development of the brain. However, I have to wonder how much of this effect is induced as a result of environmental stress. As children grow they become subject to more and more pressure from teachers, peers and unfortunately parents. As they begin to resent these people they also associate anything that comes from them with that resentment, including any form of education. This creates mental blocks in the child's mind which make it difficult or in some cases impossible for them to learn from people who have caused this reaction. This process effectively represses or outright kills their ability to learn or to think for themselves.
On another note I appreciate your thoughtfulness and I do understand how difficult your situation must be. I don't want to tell you what to do, it is not my right, but I beg you to consider that it might not be too farfetched to imagine that the day may come when they make it illegal to take your own children out of school. In any case I am glad that you are fighting the good fight. Thank you for that and thank you for the kind words toward my mother. I could live twice and still not measure up to what she did to keep us safe, strong and above all free:)

Exactly – You shouldn’t.

you obviously don’t know Glenn. The money he is raising for Chris’s family is astonishing and shows the kind of man he is. Your words are showing the kind of person you are.

He is an idiot. I’m sure his single viewer was even annoyed.
The weight problem in America is due to free busing, free schooling, free lunches, free welfare, free disability, free housing, free energy assistance, free food stamps, and over regulation. Release our people you slavemasters and let us work for a living. You give and give out of our pockets because you have nothing to give that is not ours. You take what is ours. You rape us of our fruits.
