    Can you imagine the political power those people have who are doing the redacting?

    We need their names.

    Who decides who is appropriate for deciding what is appropriate?

    Our compulsory K-12 schools no long teach the next generation ethics and morality, who decided that was appropriate?

    Without studying ethics and morality is it appropriate to measure what is and what is not and what is appropriately ethical and moral?

    firebreathingpatriotdeatheagleoftruth …. Check out the Constitution for how the Constitution works.

    Playing telephone with law has created very large law libraries, but few lawyers who know the Constitution and even fewer K-12 compulsory school students who have studied the law of the land, the Constitution.

    Creative boldness, etiquette, statesmanship are not taught in K-12 compulsory schools these days, nor is our nation’s history. Our teachers being graduates of the same compulsory education system have been trained to be lacking.

    Repeal Compulsory Education… teach the next generation to be parents in the United States, that is the first responsibility of schooling. Parents are ethical, moral, free people, curious people. Ethics and Morality are not longer taught in K-12 compulsory education and we have the major cities going bankrupt to prove it. We have the rural communities going extinct while the national debt sets a new record high every minute of every days, year after year.

    And our biggest problem is a young man asking a young lady to a prom.

    Agencies of the government are free from checks and balances. They make, interpret and enforce the law without recourse by the voters. They have all the human frailties the founders were attempting to control with the Constitution.

    We the People have been put upon by Agencies because of our ignorance. Compulsory K-12 education does not test our knowledge of our nation’s history therefore its not taught and we get agencies.

    Time to take our children back, repeal compulsory education. Then take responsibility for preparing your child to be a parent in the United States. We haven’t prepared our next generation to be parents since 1917 because of compulsory education.

    To know and not to have done, is not to know yet.

    There is a difference between reading about or seeing on TV others doing ranching or sex or ice skating and having done ranching or sex or ice skating.

    We have them because of K-12 compulsory education system is graduating useful idiots with no knowledge of our nation’s history.

    NAEP tests only test math, reading and science. History is untested therefore not taught. Nor could history be taught by teachers who themselves victims of K-12 compulsory education.

    Check out what has happened in New Orleans since Katrina. You will find of glimmer of hope, void of union teachers, union staff and far less impacted by the Department of Education.

    Unlike the lawyers of today, there is a good chance those students actually have studied the Constitution.

    Reid, Pelosi and the like are doing the Chicken Little role, The sky is falling. Of course those recent victims of a K-12 compulsory education will not understand the metaphor or be capable of reading it if written in cursive. Our next generation is being raised as useful idiots for the like of Reid and Pelosi.

    Why did no one ask?

    You would make that statement and then sign a document with those words and these “And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.”?

    Really?

    Explain? Its your moment to shine.

    Help me out here. Which type of people? How do you identify types of people?

    Are you suggesting that because of your superior intellect you can tell if a person can be reasoned with or not? Good trick, show me.

  • April 16, 2014 at 1:51pm

    Could be. Now explain the video.

    What was the officer trying to accomplish with each blow? Cooperation? For the victim of the blows to do what, remain defenseless Gandhi style or what is natural guard against the blows.

    How much time was he allowing to measure if he was accomplishing his goal between strikes?

    Would a reasonable person agree the officer was trying to subdue the situation with each blow?

    Did you read the story. Another home had a dog that barked and scared the perp away.

    Perp must have only cased the Le home using your logic.

    Faith

    When you come to the edge of all that is know
    Faith is knowing that one of two things will happen
    You will be given something solid to stand on
    Or you will be taught how to fly.

    Faith, like wind, is not something we can see. Yet we can see its effects.

    Is Christianity a philosophy for living or a religion? If those were your two choices, to believe in Christianity or a religion, which is superior in your daily life? Does following that choice in your daily life require faith? Can you follow untruths?

    Does reading the Bible change the truth or remind you of the truth? Would a reminder on your everyday person also serve as a reminder?

    Faith, Persistence, Community

    Creeping ignorance… disinformation repeated turns into George chopped down the cherry tree.

    Take a few minutes to read the Constitution.

    Then get back to us with the words you say allow the federal government to get into the HealthCare insurance business or any for profit business.

    Is Christianity a religion or philosophy on living?

    Is the Bible a book on religion or a book on Christianity that some religions use as a reference?

    In 1782 the Continental Congress distributed the Aitken Bible to schools as a text book for the study of morality and ethics. Today neither subject is taught in public schools.

    People tend to do what they have done before.

    Is this the change you expected?

    Have you not researched the status of our education system? Since 1970 we have more than tripled our spending per student, reduced our class sizes, increased our staffing at a rate surpassing the student population growth and according to NAEP test results have not statistically improved test results in over 40 years. In worldwide education comparison our standing is continuing to fall. All nation with superior scores are spending less than the United States, most nations with better scores are spending about half as much per student compared to the United States.

    Sixty plus years ago the federal government starting with the Impact Aid Act of 1950 followed by the Great Society’s 1965 Title One grant money and in 1979 with the creation of the Department of Education our nation made a concerted effort via centralizing education to provide for the educational needs of our widely diverse nation. Our basic skills test scores have plummeted. Over 95% of our rural communities are on the path to extinction having suffered decades of continuous population loss. Major cities are filing for bankruptcy, urban slums are growing, the percentage of population not working is growing as our national debt sets a new record high day after day, year after year.
