Plus they produce tons of their own fuel and food! I am a native Texan, the USAF has sent us to Mississippi; but every time I am back home I get a kick out of shopping at Kroger where most of their food has “For Texas from Texas” stickers.

And how far is $55 a day going to go toward feeding families when food is running out and the prices shoot sky high? I hope Greece is prepared to know hunger, because I doubt the take-take society that exists there planned ahead and saved food. Wake up America. Don’t keep up with the Joneses, prepare for where the world is headed!
The pot is indeed heating up. Michael Savage also says he's "feeling" that something big, bad is about to happen.
Greece, how stupid are you guys?
Don't pay your bills,... They shut the operation down.
It's simple mathematics.
Nope. Absolutely no reason to have supplies on hand. People that do that are right wing wacky jobs. I mean, who would want to have food and water on hand if the supply chain stops?
Not me because I don't want to be labeled a right wing wacky job. I'd rather wait for FEMA to tell me how to get to the superdome.
Banks don't have enough to last a couple of days. The Greeks cannot print endless money like Obama because they are on the Euro.

The majority of homeschoolers are not locked in boxes and kept away from society. I know hundreds of homeschool families, and not one of them operates that way. My kids are competitive gymnasts and are with public schooled children sometimes 20 hours a week. I know so many homeschool kids from when I was younger, none of them jumped the fence in college. Some of them even attended very liberal colleges–but most attended Christian Universities.
You can not prepare children for every scenario that comes there way, but at the same time you can. You can train them into adults with strong character. Your argument is, we shield them so much–but keeping them from sex education in elementary school does not mean you are making them weak minded, and easily susceptible to the wild outside world.

WOW. Find another dentist. The ones I have been too always want the parents with the child holding their hand and keeping them calm. Works better that a straight jacket!

A lot of people are turning to homeschool co-ops. Some of them are set up very similar to traditional school in regards to class schedule but the parents come together who like the same curriculum and take turns teaching classes. I am in a co-op that doesn’t do class sharing but we do field trips, programs, special events, spelling bees… stuff like that.
I help a ton of families come to homeschooling, and help even more grow in homeschooling. I hate when I hear people say they CAN’T homeschool when I know so many families that over come crazy circumstance to make sure their children get the best education they can. I know two single moms who work during the day and come home and homeschool their kids in the evenings. There is a way for every family, and I don’t like for people to get discouraged.

Stop sending your kids to school. Truly that is the only way to “keep them safe”. I am considering launching an education platform for conservative parents. We need to network together more than ever, and we need to take back the education of our children. Right now that means removing them from the system. This meeting should make it obvious that we can not change it from the inside. That we can not hope they will listen, or serve the people they were elected to serve. They only serve an agenda, they don’t care what we think.
Home schooling is definitely the way to go. I am afraid some do not know that different parents teach different subjects in some groups, children of different families can be in class together, the field trips, etc...
Since you do home school (we sent our kids to a parochial school but know many home school families), do you have a good link that explains it to some who are not sure of what it is all about?
TIA kulig :-)
You have had many awesome posts about home schooling.
This looney-tune stuff re: sex education, along with Common Core (and it IS part of Common Core) could easily backfire on the Left as it will give more traction to REAL school choice with money that follows the child to private schools (including church schools).
The problem currently is that the system is rigged. You can start a private school but since you do not get government funding, you have to charge a lot more money for students to attend. Money that a lot of parents do not have in today's "tax everything" society. School vouchers would help with this, which is exactly why liberals are so against it. It would take children out of the reeducation camps called public schools.
Right on but what about the home school communities. I have met several families that live and work in the RV Parks and homeschool. They also go to groups of homeschoolers so they can socialize... The kids are well rounded, hard working and respectful,kids....Possibly you could connect the entire program with them...
Run for office or shut up. You can't have your way if you stay home.
I both agree and disagree with what you are saying, essentially with the comment "Stop sending your kids to School"
I do believe that a good homeschooling, or private education is going to be much better for a childs education.
However I also believe to some degree, that teaching them outside the mainstream culture, would probably leave them unable to engage and stand against the culture.
Here is a good example. There are many good Christian parents who raise very good Christian children. However when the children go off to college, many of them renounce or do not believe in the faith and its values and morals anymore. This is because they were not taught how to engage the culture, and fight back.
They may be taught creationalism, but cannot defend it scientifically, so then when confronted with the scientific evidence for evolution, the age of the earth etc, they just cannot stand against it.
What your kids need the most, is for you to prepare and teach them things YOURSELF. They need YOU to prepare them with the tools they need to stand up to the strong winds of the culture. They need you to build them on a foundation of solid rock.
They need you to do more than just teach them"gay marriage is wrong", they need you to teach them the distinctions between gay "marriage", and marriage. They need you to teach them what makes marriage unique and special.
Anyways this is part 1.
That's silly, even foolish. How long can you run from evil before it catches you?

My father, Juan Manual, who IS hispanic, Calls them wet-backs; and he can ALWAYS tell when they’re illegal.
As a baby boomer I totally agree with your last statement, and I'm glad you are part of the minority.
I agree! Complex is not a word that I would use to describe this generation.

And now I’ll totally be driving my pregnant self to Chick-fil-a for dinner. Always a good experience. Plus, I guess this means all the outrage directed at them was entirely AstroTurf, as many of us already knew.
I too have always enjoyed their food however it is the friendly service that brings me back, always a smile and thank you. Last two times at Mckey D's , food shoved out window like at typical slop house.
Needing to 'Goog' the nearest location here :)
This guy is the bravest guy in the world! Not really, but if he actually ate these remade sandwiches, he's high on the list. Hold the onions, hold the lettuce, a little spittle won't upset us.
What no In and Out! I am outraged, truly outraged! And what in the Hoolie heck are those meccas of snobbery Chipotle and Panera doing in the Top 5? Burritos at Shipotle taste like the were warmed in Michael Moore's armpit, And Panera is all carbs. Oh, except for the "broth bowls." How foo-foo of them.
of course it was all astro turf... they are the same people that would tell you that 40% of the population is gay or identifies as gender neutral while it is actually less than 2%... They wanted Chick-fil-a sunk because they are Christian and hold to Christian principles.... Kind of like how they want us to believe that all these fast food employees really feel that they need a living wage to work at McDonalds??? ask them some time... most will tell you they aren't going to work there forever... the vast majority are kids... Those protests are all paid union people who want the wages higher so that they can bargain for higher wages all around... Make people believe that a chain is sunk and people will stop going...luckily it didn't work this time
What, no Culver's???
“Five to 10 years from now, what will McDonald’s be?”
A fond memory like other out-dated, discarded things such as our Liberty, Justice, and Self Rule.
A survey of 5000 people is hardly a valid survey. How about a survey of 50,000 people? That's one I would pay attention to; not this one.
It is not surprising that the older chains appear at the bottom. People vote for what they view as 'new' products because they stand out from the tried and true, not necessarily because the products are better, just different.
Tune in for the same poll in 2025 and don't be surprised to see some of the high fliers at the bottom of the list.
Love the Chick-Fil-A's for their friendly and kind service, good food.
McDonald's, I haven't darkened their door since they hired Robert Gibbs.
I took my daughter to Chick-Fil-A Daddy Daughter date. Limo ride and activities during dinner. How can you compete when a fast food joint does that!
I believe the liberals are going insane over this story. They hate Chick-fil-a because of their owners views on marriage.

Well, Russia’s not going to like THAT.
So how many countries have to be at war before its a World War?
The definition of World War is one that involves most of the principal nations of the world. However, the definition of "principal nation" is vague. Most assuredly a world war would have to engage most of Europe, all of North America, Russia, China and Japan to qualify. I'm not sure if there are any countries in Africa, the Middle East, or South America that qualify as "principal nations".

The government never asks for less power, and it doesn’t care what you think about it either.

This woman is probably detached from the reality of where her food comes from. It’s people like her who would never make it if the current system collapsed.
I see a lot of people talking about the country of origin being removed from meat packs; but we shouldn’t even be giving the government the chance to deceive us. Because we know, given the chance, they always will. Buy local. Be the most responsible for your family’s food you can be. It was hard for us when we in the desert southwest, but nothing worth having is easy.
Duh "woman" is the same one whom puts uberhot MCcoffee in her snatch instead of the CUPHOLDER.

Well so long as you achieved your life long goal of working at The Sizzler.

Brussels sprouts are my 8 year olds favorite food. Plenty of parents have looked at us strangely when she asks for them in the grocery store. She likes hers baked until turning brown with olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper.
Yummy! Part of the reason I tried so many things is that I was a very picky eater as a child, so I had great sympathy for my kids' aversions.
 June 29, 2015 at 4:20pm
I have five going on six children, and I don’t have a single picky eater. The “pickiest” one prefers not to drink milk–that is her worst offense; but since water is offered as an option for every meal I consider this a non-issue. Why don’t I have any picky eaters? Because you either eat what is provided for you or you don’t eat. This is not a threat, it is how it is. Our family is too large for me to be a short order cook, and I don’t let the kids graze all day. Since we have small children we have 2 scheduled snacks–usually fruit–and 3 strict meal times. It’s miraculous. We’ve goofed up the whole eating thing just like everything else in this country.
As a former SERE instructor I know you can get hungry enough to eat the A$$ out of a skunk.
We just made dinner and that is what was served if you did not like it do not eat it. Go to bed hungry.
The human will to survive will cure picky eaters.
Dumb ass civilians
It also helps to be a decent cook in the first place. My sister always talks about how her son never eats anything, and how he's such a picky eater. He comes to visit me, and he eats everything I put in front of him, and then asks for seconds.
I seriously couldn't figure it out until I had supper at my sister's house a couple of times. Her food was just plain nasty. She was doing weird stuff like putting oatmeal in her spaghetti sauce instead of meat, to make it "thicker and healthier". All she managed to do was make it lumpy and disgusting.

Exactly, they can’t make logical conclusions at the WHO. Like aging, and child birth, effecting a persons weight. They can’t say, oh married men, especially with children, tend to work more to support a family than the average college student who has more time for sports. None of that seems to be taken into consideration.

Absolutely terrifying that the union can charge you a fee even when you’re not a member!
"....sponsorship of a political group..."
The criteria they are using to deny the NRA donation would disqualify the Union itself from collecting any money.
In California I'm forced to pay dues to CWA if I want to be employed in the company I work for, even if I'm not a member. I have the option to object to the unions use of my dues for political purposes, so every year I have to mail off a letter stating so. I usually get back $350.00 that would have gone completely to the Democrat party. The only problem is I have to trust their accounting.
That's why anyone that lives/works in any state that is not a "right to work state" is nothing more than a pawn for these hucksters.
This always bit me! Teachers are not exempt because the fallacious argument is that the union teachers "fought" for wages, etc. Bunkum! The stupid teachers were too dumb to think through the result. Main reason I stopped teaching or working under a public entity (government) union as well. In other words, don't block my freedom of choice!

I doubt they will let you keep your gold and silver when the currency collapses. Buy food, buy guns, buy seeds; heck buy things you will be able to trade like caffeine and cigarettes.
