    As a leftist do you also believe your are responsible for your choices and actions?

    Explain federalized welfare, unemployment, social security, healthcare insurance, public education if you are responsible for your choices and actions.

    Its been my observation that some people are more than willing to spend someone else’s time and money and take the credit as it they were spending the results of their knowledge, work and persistence. Is that the kind of leftist you are?

    The victims of a compulsory K-12 government controlled education voted our current crop of politicians into office.

    Which needs to be corrected, pubic education or our political representatives?

    K-12 graduates today are scholastically inferior in math, social studies and history studies to 8th graduates 100 years ago, so are their teachers.

    Our compulsory education system is based on the belief that strangers are better suited for teaching your children to become parents than you their parents, because those strangers have a certificate.

    Those strangers are rewarded for teaching children to pass tests not to learn ethic, morality , integrity or their history. Those strangers are not rewarded for producing citizens who can take their place in their local society and continue its growth.

    Major cities are going bankrupt, rural communities are going extinct as a direct result of our compulsory education system.

    Its hard to explain the outcomes related directly to information Snowden released and real disbelief in any thing associated with Snowden.

    Does anyone else find it interesting that we asked each other what can we do when our politicians behave poorly?

    We have rules for our society. K-12 graduates don’t know the rules. Isn’t knowing the rules a minimum for functioning in society? Its not being able function in society the definition of poverty?

    Therefore K-12 graduates are impoverished.

    Determining which organization, the government agency or the government worker’s union, has the final word is a situation that can occur with any government agency.

    Do government laws have standing or union pressure?

    We can end Common Core nationwide, one state at a time by repealing compulsory education one state at a time.

    When parents resume responsibility for training the next generation of parents, free enterprise will overwhelm the monopoly known as public education and parasites who suck from the $5 billion dollar teets. The text book industry, the test industry, the teacher’s unions will loose their captive national market to local needs.

    Teachers will be judged and paid by parents and local community. Communities that prosper will do so because their schools trained specialists need by the community at large. Communities will decide their long term fate one graduating class at a time.

    Improve the education in your state, repeal compulsory education.

    You are paying to have freedom of education taken from you. You are paying to have the force that brought the Pilgrims to Plymouth, freedom of education taken from you.

    You are paying to have your parental responsibility of training your children to be the next generation of parents taken from you.

    Your tax dollars are paying government experts and agencies to make laws and regulations that usurp your natural parental responsibilities.

    You can get your natural rights back when you repeal compulsory education in your state. Then your community can have schools that teach specialities.

    In a world of new products, created from the imaginations of specialist, our current compulsory education system moving further away from teaching specialities. The opposite of our needs to keep jobs in our communities.

    This house of cards, the education industry, is built on one state law in every state since 1917, compulsory education. Repeal one law, compulsory education, and the Department of Education falls apart, teacher’s unions fall apart, Common Core education falls apart. The $5 billion dollar annual golden goose, a monopoly on text books, tests, unions, government agencies will change course as if a river cutting a new channel.

    Those little drops of rain when gathered and united will again observe Natural Law, parents will again be responsible for training the next generation of parents. Our families will return to the common core that built the foundation of our nation, ethic, morality, integrity and knowledge of where we came from, where we are and what we stand for heading into out future.

    Without trust individuals, no matter how educated or skilled, no individual can not long prosper or maintain or improve their standard of living. Cities, large and small will crumble, dust to dust.

    Like drops of rain failing in fields far away, we can gather and be moved by Nature’s Laws into a powerful force, we can repeal compulsory education.

    We started with common core; ethics, morality, integrity and knowledge of our history and built a nation on that foundation.

    When compulsory education repeal Nature’s Law that parents are responsible for preparing their offspring to be the next generation of parents, bad things begin to happen. The level of public education begin falling and has continued to fall for the last 100 years.

    Can we expect young people who are born ignorant to have pride in their family, their community, their nation if they aren’t taught history? Its not reasonable to have pride in something you know little about.

    Ask history teachers questions about our nation’s history. There is a reason students know so little about our nation, teachers were students just a few years before. We have generations of declining knowledge of our country. Asked any student or graduate under 60 if George Washington was proslavery or abolitionist. Then ask them to support their answer.

    Compulsory education is lowering the level of public education, year after year.

    Repeal compulsory education. Cut the cost of education. Breakup the education industry monopolies who are sucking off a $5 billion dollar annual cash flow nipple.

    Just talked with someone today who assigned a recent graduate to count the change in a cash register. The unfortunate K-12 graduated could not count the change.

    The common core that started our nation, ethics, morality, integrity and knowledge of our past is no lo

    The price we pay for oil is being done with currency that is being inflated $60 billion a month.

    Today’s oil is cheaper than 50 years ago because of productivity improvements.

    Our costs today are the loss of buying power of our dollar. An ounce of gold 50 years ago bought 106 gallons of gas. An ounce of gold today buys 340 gallons of gas.

    Our K-12 graduates are not sufficiently educated to know why fiat money leads to economic collapse of every nation in its path. Our non-redeemable Federal Reserve Notes have nothing of value backing them. One piece of paper is only different from another because of the number written on it, not because of what it represents.

    Our schools need to return to teaching common core, ethics, morality, integrity and preparation to become the next generation of parents where we live.

    The 60s are in our national, state, and local government offices. In our schools and colleges teaching our children and their teachers.

    Their mantra is with a little more money and time we can fix this problem.

    Repeal on state law and give your children a competitive advantage, repeal compulsory school attendance. Private enterprise will do what its always done, find the best product and buy it. The best product will become better because someone else will compete for your business.

    Babies are born ignorant, it’s the parents responsibility to prepare them to be parents.

    Mississippi in 1917 was the last state to take that Natural Right away from parents with compulsory education. Since then our education standards have steadily fallen generation after generation to our current lows.

    Do your children and their children a favor, give them a competitive advantage in life, repeal compulsory education. Return the family to prominence. Or continue the pride in our education system demonstrated at Power Horn park.

    There are few, if any, education systems that do not out perform our current K-12 compulsory school system. Its a $5 billion annual system that is producing and increasing level of ignorance as demonstrated by the increasing number of bankrupt or near bankrupt cities across the United States, the increasing number on welfare, unemployment and the number of small businesses going out of business each year.

    NAEP tests have not improved in over 40 years while PISA scores have been declining for nearly the same period.

    Repeal compulsory education in your state and give your children and competitive advantage.

    A loop hole in a New Deal law to fix prices, production and wages resulted in employers offering healthcare insurance as an inducement to attract key employees. Congress wanted to plug the loop hole but the public did not.

    After WWII companies offered wages in two flavors, a lower wage with healthcare insurance and a higher wage without healthcare insurance. Most took the lower wage, in essence paying for their own healthcare insurance with pretax money, thus lowering their taxable income and getting healthcare insurance besides.

    Today’s employees are paying for their own healthcare insurance without the benefit of deciding who they spend their money with or what they get for their money.

    Creeping elegance and compulsory K-12 education has left most ignorant of the actual healthcare insurance process while filling the pockets of the politicians and certain insurance business coffers.

    Since barter turned to money as the exchange of value the universal characteristic is that as money passes from hand to hand a little is taken off the top enriching all in the exchange chain. Lower wages in exchange for healthcare insurance is an example. Adding politicians and government employees further reduces the buying power of the wage earner while increasing the income of everyone in the chain between the wage earner and desired goal, healthcare insurance.

    “Obama has read it thoroughly. He studied and taught Constitutional Law for the purpose of understanding how to manipulate it to achieve “transformation”.”

    Prove, with facts, Obama has read or taught Constitutional Law. I think in your studies you will find he did not teach the Constitution except in his speeches. “It you want to keep your doctor, you can keep your doctor, period.”

    Originally “In God is our Trust” was changed in 1865 by the Secretary of the Treasury.
    “In God we Trust” takes less space on coins.

    Is your trust a we or an I thing?

    If you don’t want to see the pictures, you have a choice to look or not.

    Its like eating and weight. You decide.

    There is no difference between a healthcare provider who will not provide service and one that does not know how to provide healthcare service..

    There is no difference between someone who cannot read and someone who will not read.

    Ask your congressional representation if they read all legislation before voting. In the case of the Affordable Care Act all will say they did not read it prior to voting.

    We can not blame our elected representation for their lack of ethics, they took an oath to protect the Constitution, which demand they read the legislation before voting. It also demands follow up because our representation is responsible for spending all the money. It that is not happening correctly, look in the mirror for the first person responsible in this Republic.
