    Who is paying the freight to get the out of town folks to Ferguson?

    You’re concerned about the kinds of things going on in Ferguson, but you’re not giving up a days pay to join the marches.

    What’s the chance those guys are successful enough to take days away from working and pay for their vacation in Ferguson?

    Any chance these guys show up at a lot of events like this?

    Who funds there organization?

    When I see the police playing army with all their new army toys it reminds me of;

    “If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.” – Abraham Maslow

    In the late 1960s there was a law suit filed in one of the northeastern states by a police department applicant who passed all the tests and interviews with very high scores but was not hired. The reason given he scored too high.

    Since then I have paid attention to gatherings of off duty police. Like most professions, police personalities standout in crowds. Most are not big on reading, history. Macho is a big deal.

    Schools are paid for by the public but run by bureaucrats who are shielded from responsibility for performance. Suing the school raises your taxes and does nothing to impact the school administration.

    Tie teacher and administration pay to community prosperity and growth. Weed out the chaff right away. Have schools who are training, on purpose, the next generation of parents and community members.

    Student aid checks are tied to student attendance in today’s compulsory education system that has not improve education levels in over 40 years. In fact is comparison with other countries our education system has lowered the general public education levels over the last 40 years.

    Students got a better education 100 years ago, when schools were 1-8 grades, by comparison with today’s K-12 graduates.

    Nobody ever improved freedom by making attendance compulsory.

    The way around this “To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;”, no mention of folding money is to have someone else print it. After the Civil War it was the national banks. Replaced by the Federal Reserve. After WWI money and currency took separate paths. After 1934 the paths moved further apart. After Bretton Woods the paths moved further apart. After 1964 the path turned fully away from each other with one path, money, stopping entirely in 1971.

    Now we only have currency. Paper with numbers written on them. Coins that cost more to make than they are worth.

    We have teachers, who after generations of declining education can no longer teach basic economic history because they were never taught it.

    We no longer teach our children what is absolutely escential to be successful in life, in parenthood and in business, our original common core, the foundation that made the United States unique in world history, ethics, morality, integrity and rich knowledge of history.

    Currency without redeemable value is a fraud, counterfeit, a bad check, deception. No one with ethics, morality and integrity can commit such a fraud against their family, friends and neighbors unless they are ignorant.

    We the People have valueless currency because we allow it. We allow the people who represent us in our government to perpetrate this fraud in our name.

    Teacher pay is tied to test scores and school attendance is compulsory, what could go wrong?

    “Universal education is the most corroding and disintegrating poison that liberalism has ever invented for its own destruction.” ~ Adolf Hitler

    “He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.” ~ Adolf Hitler

    With NAEP scores stuck at 1967 levels, the low of the Iowa Basic Skills Tests, and PISA scores, how the United States compares to other nations, plummeting could Hitler been on to something?

    Does Obama’s story line remind anyone of Wilson and Roosevelt’s story line before getting involved in war?

    Of course victims of our compulsory K-12 education system are less likely to know the same ruse has been used repeatedly for centuries as leverage for gaining power.

    Communities who elect school boards, do so with the expectation that the local school board will help the parents to prepare their children to be the next generation of parents in the community. School boards who lack the ability to work exclusively with the parents, shielded from outside influences are doomed to a bystander role.

    Compulsory education laws created our current falling level of public education nationwide by making bystanders out of the parents and school boards.

    We need George Washington’s approach to the abolition of slavery to achieve the abolition of compulsory education, legislation that repeals laws creating those situations.

    There is a cure for ignorance, education. Schools are behaving ignorantly because the staff lacks education. Education being vastly different than propaganda, biased information being presented as complete, factual information.

    To gain control of education one law must be repealed in any stay desiring to improve its level of education, repeal compulsory education. Compulsory education is a man made law that replaces the parents natural role in preparing children to be the next generation of parents by giving a stranger that responsibility. Look to Detroit, once the richest city in the world, as an example. Today Detroit and cities following that model like Philadelphia, Atlanta, Oakland and others are or are going bankrupt.

    The rolls of those dependent on government subsidy is growing as our schools collectively increasingly fail to prepare the next generation of parents, to prepare the next generation to be self sufficient.

    Repeal compulsory education… Then, as a community, decide how to prepare your children to be the next generation of parents in your community. Then as a community decide the fate of your community rather than watch your children graduate at the top of the class in failing school.

    Hamas is doing what compulsory education is doing in the United States, slanting history.

    People tend to make the best decisions that know how or have a reason for doing otherwise. When education is propaganda, elections reflect the results. The Palestinians elected Hamas who provide welfare, in the United States we elect politicians who provide welfare.

    Our Pilgrims came to the New World in search of freedom of education. By the end of the 1800s freedom of education had produced the most productive nation on earth. Then came compulsory education and we have a growing welfare state sold under the idea that those other people aren’t being fair.

    Palestine and the United States have a similar problem, neither has freedom of education. Their leadership , to remain leaders, must have people ignorant of history that can be convince their problems are caused by some other group.

    You are apparently another victim of a K-12 compulsory government controlled education. Not knowing whether Japan was warned is a glaring example of how compulsory education has failed you,

    In 1948 when Israel was created both israelis and Palestinians lived in the area of the newly formed Israel.

    Heirs of those Palestinians who stayed within the borders of Israel still live in Israel as neighbors of Israeli.

    Why did some leave and some stay?

    “Instead, we see Republicans giddy about the prospect of passing legislation along a party line vote….” kind of reminds one of the vote for the Affordable Care Act, along party lines.

    Kind of reminds one of the Dred Scott decision, along the same party lines.

    Kind of reminds one of the Plessey vs Ferguson decision, along the same party lines.

    Representative Norton is again proving she is the victim of a compulsory K-12 government controlled education by her ignorance of United States and world history.

    Another victim of a compulsory K-12 government controlled education.

    Can we change the caliber of our representation in government without first fixing our government controlled compulsory education system?

    Repeal compulsory education in your state.

    Be the first state to gain a competitive advantage over other states, repeal compulsory education laws in your state.

    Repeal compulsory education, wipe out ignorance one educated student at a time.

    In percentage of world production, pre-compulsory education 1800s United States out produced the last 100 years of compulsory educated United States.

    Government of the people, by the people, for the people. We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union….

    The United States is a terrorist country but the people of the United States are not. Is that possible?

    Are you a citizen of the State you live in who is issued a passport by the federation formed by all the states? Put the thing called the United States in a wheel barrow. Things can be put in wheel barrows, ideas/concepts cannot be put in wheel barrows.
