    When is a fire arm a fire arm? Unloaded its just so much shaped material. Material that with another shape is considered legal to carry.

    Our first school shooting took place within a decade of censoring from school libraries the oldest, most printed and most studied book on philosophies for living and governing in human history. That book was so important to some men they formed a group and designed a government based on the philosophies by a multitude of authors collected over centuries and finally brought together in one book.

    Once this nation was started they then had copies of this book distributed to schools across the nation to teach these philosophies to the next generation of parents.

    This nation is now the longest continuous government in human history. The book they revered is call a Bible.

    All the words to create a Bible are in a dictionary, they just need to be sorted and put in the right order. The unassembled Bible has not been censored from the library yet. Perhaps a elegant hyperlink can speed that process.

    Imagine the size of the TSA if after one year they caught no discrepancies.

    I once challenged production that their job was to drive discrepancies to zero thus reducing the need for Quality Assurance inspections.

    Those in QA, the next day, redoubled their efforts to save their jobs and found twice as many defects, real or imagined.

    We have artificially increased our police forces nationwide with designated stimulus money. When that stimulus money dries up and withering communities are faced with paying those wages and benefits the crime rate will sky rocket as those additional police and staff will find way to retain their job. The unintended consequence will be an increase in “speed trap” kind of towns which will further lower the business from out of town and place more economic pressure to cut the police force.

    If the war on terror is over, why are the gate guards still at the airports?

    ““‘He’s a psychopath patriot and we love him,’” Maher said mockingly of the thousands of Americans who flocked to see the film.”

    There is shock value in the word “psychopath”. Who decides when your behavior is that of a psychopath? We decides when that person is certified to decide? Who certified the certifier?

    Psychopath seems to be a word we understand until we take a closer look. Often words like that have such blurry definitions they can be applied to a very wide range of situations.

    If you examine what our school systems are teaching about American history compared to what is written in original documents, one might conclude our school system is manned by psychopaths.

    “Let’s be honest, …” As if your prior statements were not.

    Honesty is not switched on an off. For people who were taught virtues from birth, virtues are always on.

    Unfortunately our community’s churches gave up administration of our community’s public schools. That was soon followed by compulsory education, which was followed by censoring the oldest, most read and studied book on life styles and governing from their libraries.

    Today victims of a K-12 education say things like “Let’s be honest…”.

    We the People are the Feds. Those people in Washington are our representation so the place doesn’t get too crowded.

    Who controls the money has power. Our tax code intentionally creates a system of money control. Every law, every regulation is about money control.

    When we take enough interest in our education system we can teach each generation that keys to freedom are the facets of virtue. Laws and regulations do not create a virtuous environment, a virtuous education does.

    There is no government employee that pays taxes, they recycle taxes, the source of their wages.

    Government employees need more laws and regulations so their wages will go up, at private industry’s expense.

    The federal government does not need an IRS, politicians need an IRS.

    Poor speaker. Her political pieces were done with more passion.

    From where do electric cars get their electricity?

    How is all that copper, used by any method that converts magnetic motion into electricity, mined?

    Similar problem with the rare earths needed for solar panels, how is that mined and processed?

    Third world countries tend to be low on energy usage and proportionally low on standard of living.

    Gumbel like so many of us is the victim of his K-12 education rather than the beneficiary. He demonstrates, with his comments, how little he knows about American history leading to his education.

    We are who we are because… He will not be able to answer this question “When did black Americans begin voting in mass for democrat politicians?”

    Mr Gumbel will not know that black Americans voted on the ratification of the Constitution.

    Mr Gumbel will not know that the National Rifle Association, formed in 1871, at the start of Reconstruction, had a program to teach black Americans how to use fire arms to defend themselves.

    Mr Gumbel will not know that the first 23 black Americans elected to congress represented the Republican political party, one was a senator.

    Mr Gumbel will not know that prior to compulsory education our schools were administrated by the churches. During that period the United States our produced the rest of the world combined.

    The compulsory education Mr Gumbel received cannot make that claim.

    The state law in every state, compulsory education, says the state is responsible for training babies to be parents.

    In a nation that says:
    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

    This compulsory education law says we give government the power to take our children, do you agree with that law?

    Change it or live with its evolving interpretations, its your choice.

    What if that shining city on the hill were merely the glow of self reliant, moral people who formed a more perfect Union?

    The Great Society’s Model Cities selected, when they were prosperous cities in the 1960s, for additional federal government educational funding are Detroit, Newark, Camden, Oakland.

    How is that working out?

    Common Core is advertised as preparation for career opportunities. In which communities doing which career?

    Over 90% of rural American communities are going extinct at 1% per year population loss. Which one of those eroding communities will be helped by Common Core? In what specific way?

    Name the state governors, by state and name, who were involved in creating Common Core and what specifically, with documented support, each did towards creating Common Core?

    Which do you prefer, Capitalism or Free Enterprise?

    Capitalism focuses on one aspect of business, cash, while Free Enterprise focus on a wider range of activities.

    Regulations aid some in Capitalism and assume the public is not capable of taking care of themselves in Free Enterprise.

    Perhaps it’s you that is not capable and because we share our presence in the market place, helping you out “for your own good” is painting me with the same brush.

    In a society where ignorance of the law is no defense all those laws and regulations being added annually is making it impossible for anyone in the United States to even know about, let along, follow every law and regulation. Those laws are turned into social power tools to control the masses, instead of meaningful minimum acceptable social standards.

    Unknown laws have taken Freedom of Education from the public with compulsory education laws. In place of Freedom of Education is State controlled education which by definition can not teach our young the keys to freedom.

    Nationwide our school systems are controlled by federal dollars demanding an increasing list of compliances. Compliances issued by no one the public ever voted to have represent them.

    Education without representation.

    Massachusetts the first state to pass compulsory education.

    It’s impossible to have freedom without freedom of education.

  • December 26, 2014 at 11:03am

    Submit a couple generations to a K-12 education in the United States and you get blind obedience followers.

    Ignorance of the law is no excuse. The talking heads on TV when asked a question about the Constitution will defer their answer. Teachers will do the same.

    Who is preparing our children to become adults? Attendance in State approved schooling is mandatory, therefore government is responsible for teaching freedom via compulsory education.

    From that genius pool we get people who think more law and more regulations means greater freedom. Since when?

  • December 24, 2014 at 4:43pm

    Don’t like the system,do something about it. Teach others the solutions. Then vote.

    The government controls public education. You will never learn how to control government from the government. Rid your state of compulsory education by repealing your state’s compulsory education law.

  • December 24, 2014 at 4:33pm

    Its been a 100 years since freedom of education was lost in the United States.
    The fruit of the synergy of our education system graduates to become voters that elect our political representation in government. Those representatives are convinced that with just a little more money and more experts that they can cure all our social issues.

    More laws will always fix previous laws intended to fix previous laws. We just need to vote for the politicians selling the best version of utopia. Utopia a place no politician has ever visited but are sure they can lead you there.

  • December 24, 2014 at 4:22pm

    Can you be specific about your solution? If yes, do so.

  • December 24, 2014 at 4:11pm

    Stupid is a gift of birth. Ignorance is choice.

  • [1] December 24, 2014 at 4:09pm

    Education provides the basic for providing service to others.

    Its the parents responsibility to prepare their young to become parents. Its each generation’s responsibility to add to the knowledge and skills of the next generation.

    No law or regulation will increase the knowledge or skills of single individual in the next generation. There are no social short cuts. Without education there is no freedom.
