Could Democrats End Homeschooling?


Senate Democrats led by scandalous Robert Menendez (D-NJ) are looking to reintroduce  a United Nations (UN) treaty that ostensibly deals with the rights of the disabled. The treaty was defeated last year after Presidential candidate Rick Santorum derided it because of the effect it could have on homeschooling in America.

The fear of some Republicans and most home schooling families is that the ratification of the treaty could mean that parents of disabled children would lose the ability to control their child’s education. Some have scoffed at that notion by saying “that only U.S. law can be the basis for litigation in American courtrooms.” However, in recent years the courts have turned to international law as reason in their rulings more and more frequently.

As with any legislation where there seems to be partisan conflict, the Democrats have painted Republican lawmakers as anti-disabled for their stance on the treaty. Citing recent Republican losses in the 2012 election, the Gang of Eight Immigration reform, and the Supreme Courts recent gay marriage rulings, one Democratic aide put it as smugly as they could:

“There comes a point when a lot of these galvanizing issues with a social component, when you’re on the wrong side of too many of them it has an effect… You have voices within [the Republican] Caucus making the case that ‘we need to get our act together’.”

As it turns out, Republican opposition to the treaty seems to be faltering, and the Democrats see many paths to getting the treaty ratified. Some who were against it previously pointed out that the vote was taking place in a “lame-duck” session and didn’t think it was fair to vote on this when new legislators would soon be arriving. Others, like Georgia’s own Johnny Isakson, seemed conflicted the last time the measure came up for a vote and could likely easily be swayed in an off-election year.timehomeschool

Republican Senator from New Hampshire, Kelly Ayotte, voiced her support, “takes a step toward making it easier for disabled Americans to live and work overseas, without impinging on U.S. sovereignty or Congress’ authority to determine our disability laws.”

While Democrat Patty Murray of Washington State said, “it’s a disappointing day for Americans with disabilities in Washington State and across the country.”

Sure, we want to do everything we can to help those with disabilities in our country and around our world. But our legislators would do well to remember that though the purpose of the legislation may be noble, the unintended consequences may be dramatic. After all, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions.”

    I believe we will be so enslaved to the government that they will end homeschooling. Isn’t that customary in all communist countries. They want our children raised according to their wicked minds which means  GOD and HIS SON JESUS must weeded out and was washed out of the minds those who believe. This is the aim of our present Communist Government. I thank GOD that my children and grandchildren are out of school and all are Christians. My grand children were homeschooled and their main aim in life is furthering the WORD OF GOD.
    Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

    • BobE

      Evermyrtle  you can always poison your child’s mind with religion at home, in church or at a private school if homeschool was ended.

      • stixuits21

        Is Christianity brainwashing? Actually, yes it is. Any form of teaching and preaching to a child what the adult or person of authority deems worthy, is brainwashing. But what we choose to teach our children in our own homes, is our choice. Same with private and religious schools. I personally see teaching children the crud in public schools pure liberal propaganda. To preschoolers even : “And the princess married the princess and they lived happily ever after.” I’ve asked highschoolers and recent graduates if they know who Hilter is. 90% of them had no idea. We aren’t even teaching kids in public schools anymore…

        • BobE

          stixuits21 I agree with you. You can teach kids whatever you want in your home, church, private school, etc. You just cannot teach them religion in public schools.

        • stixuits21

          I didn’t say anything about what we should teach in public school. What the article is stating is this is a slippery slope argument. Starts out like this then leads to what we can and can’t teach in our own homes, just like Canada.

        • LetsFindOut

          stixuits21 - All education is brainwashing. The only question is who do you want washing your brain.  I will take parents over the government any day.

        • SandyTrank

          stixuits21 When my boys were in grade school it was “Heather has Two Mommies” and that is the kind of thing that has made some kids what they are today. Those who were raised in the Nurture and admonition of the Lord are good citizens where many of the others are not. Fearing God and being accountable for one’s behavior is not a bad thing.

        • Evermyrtle

          BobE stixuits21 And you teach your hate, hate, and more hate, for anybody who does not believe as you do, to you children.. The religion of hate is a very dangerous thing. IT will lead you straight to the lake of fire. It is bad that you don’t do better for yourself but when you teach your children the same religion, it is inexcusable. I think that is why hell lasts forever is that haters teach  everybody around them to hate non-believer in you and your master Satan.Wise up, it could possibly be that you have preached hate so long that it is too late.

        • Caveman600BC

          BobE stixuits21 “You just cannot teach them religion in public schools.”  I would disagree.  Currently, schools teach atheism and secularism, which is a belief system just like Christianity.  The Constitution doesn’t prohibit God from our schools, it is supposed to protect the people from a national government sponsored religion.  I would contend that secularism is the national religion and the politicians are the priests, so this separation of church and state (which has no Constitutional basis) is regularly violated by our government.

        • LetsFindOut

          Caveman600BC BobE stixuits21 - All public schools were Christian schools and most were run by ministers when the public schools first started.

        • BobE

          Caveman600BC BobE stixuits21 Atheism is not a belief system. It’s a LACK of belief. When you can understand why you reject ALL other religions & view them as myths then you’ll understand why atheists reject yours. I’ll even take it one more step. I can tell you exactly why I don’t believe in God & even tell you what evidence it would take for me to admit I was mistaken. Can you do the same? If you can’t then a belief system that leaves no room for doubt is not a belief, it’s a superstition

        • DMJ

          stixuits21 Just ignore BobE.  He’s not worth replying to.

      • Evermyrtle

        BobE Evermyrtle Bobeo, do you have children? Did you brainwash them when the gave them words and instructions, about what is right and what is wrong, ACCORDING TO WHAT YOU THINK?  to deny GOD, to speak English? what to eat, what not to eat? what will make them sick if you eat it. what is harmful to you mind? how to dress,or not to dress? beliefs of the Communist or the Socialist? You are such a fool!!! You did not ask my advice when you teach or try  lead others astray and I nor any Christian needs you to help, believe you, me.

        • elnegron77

          Evermyrtle BobE 
          Evermyrtle I was going tell you that Bobe can’t have children being that he is a child himself. But I realized that nowadays children are having children, maybe that is what happen with Bobe. Bobe please don’t have children but if you do,
          Jesus will Love them just like he Loves You BobE…..

        • BobE

          elnegron77 Evermyrtle BobE I do have children that attend public school (Malibu High School) & are receiving a fine education & although I would love to see them go to NYU one is set on Stanford & the other Wharton or Harvard it seems.

        • Evermyrtle

          BobE elnegron77 Evermyrtle And getting thoroughly brainwashed by the government run anti-GOD schools with mostly anti-GOD teachers. I do believe there are some Christian teachers, but would not dare mention the names of GOD or JESUS CHRIST but have no problem in mentioning most other religions, as Muslim Islam, for sure. Children are taught in many public schools to put JESUS CHRIST name under their feet, that dear Boobie is brainwashing.

        • BobE

          If you had two children and one had to be bribed (heaven)
          and threatened (hell) to do what he was supposed to do, and the other one just
          did it because that’s what he knew was the right thing to do, which would you
          consider the better person?

        • elnegron77

          BobE Evermyrtle 
          I don’t have to bribe or threaten my children and they grew up to be productive young ladies that respect others opinions even if they don’t agree with them. Can’t say the same about you, but your still very young. Hopefully by the time you get out of your teens you will learn to be respectful of others.
          And remember Jesus Loves You BobE and will forget all your nasty comments, so will most of the Christians you have insulted here.

    • BobE

      Evermyrtle
      The teaching of the fear of hell as a serious doctrine is
      something which should be exposed as superstitious and against which every child should be given
      the immunity of a realistic education.

      • Evermyrtle

        BobE Evermyrtle Remember that when you splash down, that the truth is never superstitious. You can read about in Matthew 24:31-46. It is explained so that anyone can understand it.

      • ilinoisby

        BobE Evermyrtle I have read the enitire Bible through word for word, two times, which took me over 24 total years to complete. There is no way that it could not be written by God Himself spoken through the men and women who  wrote it.  It goes against all human nature and no normal person could or would have written what is in the Scripture.

        • BobE

          ilinoisby BobE Evermyrtle 24 years to complete? I think it fair to say you’re not a “speed reader”. For one thing NOBODY claims god actually wrote the bible & for another thing since we don’t even have an original copy of ANY of the gospels & the oldest copies or copies, of copies we do have are 200 years older than when they were supposed to have been written & NONE of the oldest copies we do have are alike we don’t even know what the originals even said!

        • PaulBrown1

          BobE ilinoisby Evermyrtle Are you saying then that you don’t believe the Bible is true or you don’t believe in the word of God? If you don’t believe in the Bible or in God’s word then that would make you a 100% demoncrap and an atheist pig.
          I read a book by a very wealthy businessman one time, and he got sick of hearing his wife talk about God and the Bible. This man decided to try and prove once and for all that there was no God, in the end and after many many hundreds of thousands of dollars, he proved one thing, his wife was right and there really is a God, and he is alive and well even today.

  • BobE

    Conservative Christians have been on the wrong side of EVERY social issue in the history of this country so that is unlikely to change.

    • patriot charles

      BobE you idocy is showing dumbocrat

      BobE   Le’ts see, conservative Christians were the ones who started the ani

      • Tasha33

        the anti-slavery movement, set up poor houses ands schools for slave children even before the Revolutionary War.     See Fitzhugh on the defense of slavery—ideas straight out of Marx.

  • LetsFindOut

    The idea of this administration wants to end homeschooling is certainly not a new one. Obama has been very clear that he wants one set of schools, run by the federal government, and anything outside of that is because of prejudice that we should now allow children to be around. We saw this in Ireland just a couple of weeks ago with him deriding private Christian schools as if they were the ones causing racial segregation instead of things like his biased policies. We should always oppose UN involvement in the US as we are a sovereign nation. This particular treaty should be fought with vigor.

  • sanman1

    Why not, they (being Democraps) fk up everything with moral value!

    They’ll try. The time for “refreshing the tree of liberty” keeps getting closer.

    • patriot charles

      KarenMorrisonSutton amen and all but 2 of 27 of my grand children are homeschooled

  • BlueViolets

    Just one more way to wrest control of children away from parents and into public indoctrination centers.  After that they will want remove young children from the home and place them in state homes for their ‘betterment’.  We are about 3/4 of way down the slippery slope and the ride is getting faster.

  • TimBrady

    Dump the UN.  Solves lots of problems and even helps the budget.  Let someone else pay for it.

    • jb80538

      TimBrady Just DO AWAY with the UN!

  • bdcorvette

    Why would liberals support an end to home schooling?  Easy.  Home schoolers score significantly better on standardized tests and SAT’s than their public school couterparts, thereby demonstrating the relative weakness of public school education with all of its socialist, diversity- and inclusive- oriented BS.  For them, better to be red (commie) than wrong.  The truth hurts.

    • hankster6

      bdcorvette The reason that liberals are against home schooling is because kids that are schooled at home do not get Obama’s indoctrination. It is that simple. If Obama does not make it to an elementary school, he ensures that the teachers are indoctrinated enough to indoctrinate the kids. Oh, you think I that don’t know what I am talking about. That is OK. Keep thinking what you do and ask your own kids what is happening in school, if you don’t already.

  • lorquiltdiva1

    Education is LOCAL! Where do you find it in the Constitution. Public education was not a consideration for many years. Time to stop these idiots.

  • RandyCote

    the  question was can democrats end home schooling my answer is why not they with Obama’s help screwed up everything else in this country in a few short years.

  • MichaelBurch

    I find that anything associated with or about the UN..is not GOOD for the USA….the only thing the UN likes about us is our money..which makes them similar to a prostitute..it is time to get the UN out of our country,and stop giving them any more money…

    • Tasha33

      MichaelBurch   Let’s look at the UN, with the exception of the US, Canada, England and a handful of other countries, it is over 90% totalitarian countries of Marxist or islamonazi stripe.   Most of them are anti-American and anti-Semitic and a smaller majority simply anti-western, but they just LOVE to lap up as much of our money and things as they can get.    We should get out, boot them out-let htem set up their HQ in Beirut or Cairo, and be in an organization of only democracies.

      • MichaelBurch

        Tasha33 MichaelBurch if we only had politicians in the senate and congress that really cared for this country..and stopped prostituting themselves to foreign countries….maybe ,,,maybe then we could kick the UN out of our country.I am fed up with the un WAY OF BAD MOUTHING US

  • wvstarktruth1

    @[Sad] Bob E - I feel sorry for you and your fellow un-believers out there in cyber space.  You are so fearful that Christians just might be right about their faith that you are beside yourself in coming up with truthful arguments to justify your position.  Unfortunately, you did not even read the post correctly before repeating the same old talking points of the Obamavoids who want to change freedom of religion to “freedom of worship” by forcing faith inside the four walls of our homes and churches so you don’t have to be reminded that you just might find yourself doing eternity in you know where.  That, my man, is sad indeed.  Perhaps if you opened your mind and heart a bit more, some daylight will shine into that dark void in your chest that only God can fill.  I truly hope so. nobody else!)

    • BobE

      wvstarktruth1 The VERY last thing on my “fear list” is Christians might be right

  • wvstarktruth1

    @BobE  Some may have attacked your failure to believe, but that is not representative of real Christians.  Those of us who practice our faith would never force you to do something that can only be done from the heart.  I wish you well, but next time read before shooting your mouth off.  Nobody said anything about teaching faith in the public schools.  We were referring to the God-given right to home school our children in a manner that is pleasing to God.  That’s all…in the privacy of our own homes (assuming the government hasn’t taken steps to deny privacy there, too).  Have a wonderful day (and if you do, know that it is a gift from God!

    • BobE

      wvstarktruth1 the entire ID debate is about teaching religion in school

      • LetsFindOut

        BobE wvstarktruth1 - Bob, you were so close to having a correct answer. Keep trying. The debate is about WHICH religion is taught. Humanism or Christianity. There is no option to not teach religion as long as people are involved.

  • cae973

    This so called treaty does indeed eliminate parental rights and home schooling. Look at Europe where home schooling is now against the law and those who try to home school have their children taken away from them.  We have plenty of laws in this country now to aid the disabled so its unncecessary but the real reason is to eliminate home schooling because in a true socialist state ALL children must attend state schools so they can be effectively brainwashed!

  • Humpfarnarkle

    Another good solid reason to get the hell out of the U.N. ! ! !

    • hankster6

      Humpfarnarkle I believe all  conservatives would agree with you! There is no way, while Obama is in OUR white house. Those are his buddies!

  • greenmountainboy6

    The reason they would like to end home schooling would be because when they are at home getting taught they are most likely NOT to be taught in the realm of Socialism and the likes of it. Basically the state looses that many children to the state departments educational brainwashing system!

    • KaterinaGasset

      greenmountainboy6 exactly, they also lose money for each child not on their roles at public school

      • greenmountainboy6

        KaterinaGasset greenmountainboy6  
        Yes how could of I forgotten about that!

    • patriot charles

      greenmountainboy6 amen and that is why anyone who really cares about their children needs to Homeschool them.  According to US gvmt statistics the wort homeschoolers score higher than the majority of govt schooled kids.   Pat the price and live on one salary until they are through school  and you will never be sorry.  When they are out of school then you can sock the moNey away for later if you wish.   And then dont send them to  just any college or maybe not at all.    In fact you can start a home business when they are about 12 or so and get them involved in it and they will not need to go to one of the socialist dominated college. (Which is most of the includNig most supposed christian ones0.

    Every parent who cares about their children has considered home schooling.  It is that most have not been educated about the benefits of home school over that of institutional teaching.
    Here are some examples from our daughter’s experience with her two children

    Their are many home school cooperatives that support each other to optimize the quality of teacher instructions.  
    Home schooling does not require hours of transportation and special clothing to start their learning experience at home. Even when they are too sick to socialize with others, they can still work at home. 
    A small group of home schooled visited a pizza shop a few hours before it open and were taught [hands-on] the sanitary requirements, how to prepare the dough and ingredients, how to bake, take orders [as waiters] from their parents and other class members, serve, clean-up and than wash and store per codes.  This was repeated at several quick food and restaurants.  What institution does that. 
    Similar group visited farms [poultry, cattle, dairy, produce and fisheries] to have hands-on experience of how they are feed, cared for etc  essentially sampling the work that goes into providing their daily food.
    Likewise, they visited museums, battle fields, arboretums, US Naval Academy. and the like during the week when the attendance was low so the staff could arrange private tours and learning experiences that very few others ever experienced.
    They vacation during off peak times and take as long as they wish.  They learn in the care, at the destination and in hotels.
    They a computer wizards with I phones, tablets and PC. 
    They [both under 10] have completed 2 years of Latin and Greek.  They excel in math, reading and written prose … need I go on!

    • KaterinaGasset

      Geneww1938 Yes, another reason why I homeschooled 6 children and still am homeschooling my youngest son, and now my granddaughter.

      • hankster6

        KaterinaGasset Geneww1938 Thank God you can still home school. If Obama’s agenda goes on, I am sure, it will go away. Obama’s agenda is to have a society just like communist Russia, believe it or not. I haven’t even read it, but all the clues are there.

        • BobE

          hankster6 KaterinaGasset Geneww1938 DIPSHIT, Russia in no longer a communist country. If you were to EVER pull your head out of the sand you might see reality & the fact you don’t know it is reason that you have no business teaching anyone anything!

        • Tasha33

          BobE hankster6 KaterinaGasset Geneww1938   Actually, like China, it is still communist in terms of political organization.   It has simply recognized that communist economics and command economies result in backwardness and starvation for millions of people while the eilites enrich themselves.     It took free enterprise to build Russia’s oil industry and China’s businesses so that now they have a middle class–but it is still a one party dictatorial political system.

        • hankster6

      Geneww1938 There are many success stories of home schooled children doing extraordinarily well because they have parents that are bright & teach them well. The problem is some home schooled children aren’t lucky enough to have bright parents & the thought of some hillbilly’s that never got out of the 5th grade home schooling their kids with nothing but a bible (that they themselves have never read) is repulsive

      • patriot charles

        That factitious hillbilly may have more common sense in his pinky than you have in your whole body.  Even if hillbilly could not teach math and science very well the chances are he’ll teach as well as the teachers in that area since the teacher know the low expectations of the parents and will focus on ‘others’.  That is one reason why we have informal cooperatives where a more trained individual will educate in the areas where the student’s parents are lacking.
        I have heard of cases where interested parents who could not read when their kids started home school ended up learning to read and do math.  It then became a challenge for the kids to teach their parents and the whole family excelled with the help of the cooperative.

        • BobE

          Geneww1938 BobE Actually I don’t think home school is a bad thing assuming the parents or whoever do the teaching are qualified to do so. Personally I would not do it because (a) here in Malibu the public school is one of the best in the country & (b) I think any school offers social interaction that home school cannot but that’s just my opinion

      • BrendaGabbard

        BobE Geneww1938 Bob, the same goes for public schooled children but, is has nothing to do with the educational level of the parents.  Some of the most ignorant people I have met have a Phd.

      Geneww1938 We didn’t “home school” our grandson but by example after having him almost every day from birth doing reading and “playing”  the teachers are now having fits because they can’t keep up with him.  They give him 5 times the work just to keep him busy.  He corrects them when they say something wrong, or puts something wrong on the board but the school won’t put him up a grade.  He is 7 and good at it.  :~)

      • BrendaGabbard

        makrov Geneww1938 It is not a good thing to put a child up a grade for several reasons I won’t mention here.  If you are as insightful as you seem, I’m sure you will come up with them on your own.  A little bit of coaching in appropriate behavior when interacting with adults might be in order for your grandson.  If you allow him to continue with that sort of behavior there is sure to be a problem with the school over time.  I would hate to see such an intelligent child labeled as having some sort of disorder.

        • makrov

          BrendaGabbard makrov Geneww1938 Too bad you don’t know him.  I have a teaching degree and my wife was studying for one when we married. His age is 28 days from being in the next grade and they won’t put him up because they would lose $4000 from the state.  No other reason.  He reacts to adults like an adult. Adults love him.   We ran a business for 3 years and he would interact with our customers.  They asked how old and he was, 5,  but had a vocabulary of an eight year old.  They said he was better than their 3rd grader and he wasn’t in school yet.  He is something you would have to see.  Even the teachers want to put him up but the school district won’t. He gets along with the older kids, he has a sister going into 5th grade.Most teachers want a class room full of kids like him but parents don’t put the work into their kids like we  did him.  There is NO reason or PROBLEM  of putting him up.

        • BrendaGabbard

          makrov BrendaGabbard Geneww1938 I am glad that is so in his case.  It has not been so for children in every case.  For many children there can be a problem due simply to the fact that they are not as large nor are they as old as the children they are classed with.  Development  in some areas has nothing to do with intelligence.   The optimum is for a child to be with other children of close to the same age in an advanced class.  Of course private education or homeschooling is better for all children.   I also have a degree in education.

    • FreedomUSANow

      Geneww1938   Gee, fancy that, they were being taught how to work and actually get a job rather than learning about junk science and how to worship the mother earth.  My daughter, God bless her, home schooled her oldest son.  It might not have been her 1st choice but how the schools were she realized there was no choice…  I know things are easier with 2 incomes, but it’s not impossible and it CAN be done.  But with the liberals offering a easy choice most people take that route….  and our kids are suffering which they will for the reat of their lives..

    • Tasha33

      Geneww1938   You are 100% correct.   I met a lady at a professional workshop we ho homeschooled all twelve or her kids.   She started originally because she and her husband were in the military and moved a lot.   But they participate in all kinds of extra curricular activities, including debate teams, through home schooling associations.    In many places, home schooled kids are allowed to participate in schools extra curricular activities as well.     Some of my neighbors and friends homeschooled their kids and I will match them, coming out of high school with over 90% of kids coming out of public colleges–they will far exceed them every time.

  • DrBillLemoine

    This is pretty much a bunch of nonsense wrapped around a serious kernel of truth, designed to gloss over the real story. No international treat governs internal American behavior like education. If it did, we’d be laughed out of the 21st century with our apparent short comings measuring up to international comparisons in math, science, etc. In truth American public schools provide a platform for all children to learn as much as they are capable, in a diverse atmosphere, with much multi-cultural, if not multi-lingual and multi-racial, interaction so they can become effective citizens in a shrinking world. Home school parents don’t have the wide diversity of perspecives, knowledge, attitudes and methods for teaching like that. Plus withdrawal from public schools deprives the home schooled children and public school cadres with much interaction of value to both groups. Nondenominational public schools need religious oriented home schoolers. Individuals educated at home with unusual attention from adults succeed well, but lose community attitudes. Public school students need challenging from ideologies provided by selected homes different from the mainstream. Public school support by home school parents dwindles depriving public schools of funds they should get and need. But no international treaty resolves any of these issues, nor influences them.

    • sqlBender

      DrBillLemoine What other countries educate all of their children?  American public schools educate to lowest common denominator.  They do not bring the best out of each student.  Homeschoolers do not school in isolation, they work through coops that provide the very diversity you say is only available at public schools.  You’re repeating stereotypes sir.

      • Cookiepress

        sqlBender DrBillLemoine Knowing both homeschoolers and the public school system as I do I think homeschoolers have so much more diversity than public.

    • FreedomUSANow

      DrBillLemoine   How could  you possibly think “Public school support by home school parents dwindles depriving public schools of funds”??  I hope you don’t think there are any tax breaks for home schoolers?  Public schools are funded by Taxes. Everywhere. If a person home schools their kids they pay the SAME taxes as if they had all of their kids in public school.  Your statement is not accurate.  I hope you didn’t base your argument on that incorrect foundation?  And you’re a doctor?  Yikes!    You also stated “withdrawal from public schools deprives the home schooled children and public school cadres with much interaction of value to..”   again you are wrong.  A parent that home schools does not start at 8am and quit at 3pm – the education continues all day long.  They have field trips to varied locations, meet lots of other kids, interact with those they get along with and learn from all cultures based on the states guidelines but in addition to those guidelines the parents can do much more.  Like teaching values and religion – which public teachers are forbidden to do – although I have heard of muslim “values” being taught and even a muslim mosque visited as a field trip.  Hmmm… I wonder if they had similar field trips to Baptists or Catholic churches? (of course not) None of your arguments hold water.  Again, Yikes!  And finally, who are you to decide that the “interaction is of value” mentioned above is worthwhile? You?  The state? My vote goes to the parents..  every time..

    • Tasha33

      DrBillLemoine   Actually you know NOTHING about it.  I know of number of people who have home schooled their kids and they and they are far superior intellectually to ps kids.   If I were in certain areas, I would definitely home school my kids so they wouldn’t have to be exposed to the abusive and vulgar language of the thugs in their classes.    Kids are not homeschooled in a bubble.  They live in the real world with different kinds of neighbors, friends, relatives, and associates they see at events, stores, community activities, etc.   Kids who are home schooled do far better on the state exams than kids in many schools.     Parents of home schooled kids are still unfairly paying taxes for schools they don’t use.   Eveyrone should pay for their kids’ school, then maybe they will teach their kids how to behave and demand that they study.   If you can afford $100+ sneakers and cable and parties all the time, you can pay $100 a month for your kids to go to school.   Then there will be instantaneous increases in achievement and behavjior improvement.s

    • PhillipLake

      DrBillLemoine BS, and I don’t mean my teacher’s degree. I too have taught in the public schools and I personally now a lot of people who either homeschool or private. The kids have a MUCH greater chance of a superior education. And that is what WE NEED. People that can think for themselves and provide for themselves and teach others to do the same. YOU SIR are wrong. You are thinking like the left-handed fools of this country are thinking. You people don’t want someone to gain superior knowledge because you lose control when they think for themselves.

    • BrendaGabbard

      DrBillLemoine Public educated individuals do not necessarily gain community attitudes (whatever you definition of that might be).  You seem to think that homeschooled children are completely isolated.  That of course is not the case.  Most of them exist and live within a diverse community and have an extended very diverse family.  Many also live within multiracial families and communities.  You sir seem to be under many stereotyped misconceptions.  Multiculturalism is highly overrated at any case.  
      Another of your points is funding.  The last time I checked, homeschoolers still had to pay school taxes from which the public schools get much of their funds.  It is true that some funds especially for handicapped children may come from federal or state grants.  The risk to handicapped students from public schools far outweighs any benefits either to the student or the school.  Any parent of a handicapped child must first think of what is best for the child and consider the financial benefit to the school secondly.

    • gw111

      DrBillLemoine The idea that interaction comes from associating with those of your own age is a false one. I find home schooled kids learn to interact with adults as well as other children. If a child interacts with kids only then often times their views are immature. Other kids at public schools learn to interact with a special group of adults only, the public school teacher.
      If the education system was more diverse then perhaps kids could see what real adults deal with. I am sure most public school teachers are honest and try hard to teach kids well. However a larger more diverse group of adults is much more possible with home schooling.

    • Cookiepress

      DrBillLemoine Property owners pay school tax. It has nothing to do with how a person chooses to school their children. Homeschoolers get NO financial support from government in most states.

      • LetsFindOut

        Cookiepress DrBillLemoine - And that is something that could easily be fixed with a “schooling tax credit” for any parent to use in private or home schooling. The private schools would still get all the money they normally charge and the tax payer would get to use the tax they pay towards something actually helpful to the kids whether they sent their kids to private school or homeschool.

        • Cookiepress

          LetsFindOut Cookiepress DrBillLemoine I mentioned a tax credit or some kind of government funding for books etc. to my daughter a while back and she told me she didn’t want it as that would give government more control over what her children are taught. She’s right, the more government gives us (even if it is our own money) the more control it has.

        • LetsFindOut

          Cookiepress LetsFindOut DrBillLemoine - It depends on the state. There are states that issue a tax credit to the school.  In these cases, the government can (and does) come in and tell the school that if they are going to take the states money, they need to agree to the same teaching standards as public school (i.e. teach the kids Humanism). But, if the tax goes to the parent and not the school that problem is solved. The parent is simply getting to use their tax dollars where they want and the school is not directly involved with the government at all. In fact, the school would not know which parents were using the tax credits and which were not because the school just keeps charging the parents and the parents pay. But the point your daughter makes about not wanting the government involved in teaching is correct. The transaction needs to stay between the tax payer and the government and keep the government out of the education process.

  • timpclimber

    As a certified teacher I have taught in public schools for over 20 years and home schooled several of my grandchildren because they couldn’t attend regular school.  I used home school materials and curricula that were superior to the State Core.  When my grandchildren could return to public schooling they enjoyed the social life but were bored in their classes because the teachers had to teach the unwilling the unwanted.  Eliminating home schooling should not be allowed to happen as it will dumb down and put certain children at a great disadvantage.

    Why the hell do you dumb a9s9s democrats object to children getting a better education in any way they can. I could care less what excuse you use; I was a teacher and I can tell you first hand that homeschooling and private schools produce higher rates of education than those in the public school sector. I guess you nuts are afraid that children will be able to think for themselves and threaten every thing you idiots are trying to destroy. I guarantee you that the legislators and senators children all go to private schools and home schooling. But, as usual, you think it would be okay for  them to be exempt.

    Ms and Mr America get all their opinions from the Media who demonize homeschooling as depriving children of socialization (as if kept sitting all day at a desk with 30 more or less other kids somehow socializes anybody).  The majority of people in this country do not think for themselves.  Those of you commenting on here are (gasp) not the norm.  The norm are a bunch of dimwits who voted for Obama and want partial birth abortion because the left tells them they should want it.  If you don’t believe me read Dr Bill Lemoine’s comment below.  He knows all the false platitudes.

      BrendaGabbard 8 of my 9 grandchildren are homeschooled (#9 is only 2) and are some of the most social respectful, considerate  and responsible children I have seen in a long time. They have their own community with so many programs and more time for them because the children are not sitting in a classroom for 8 hours a day and commuting another 2. The people who are teaching them actually care about how they turn out, not how much money, retirement, or other perks they can get.

Many people are homeschooling because of many reasons, including, who the hell wants to teach their child about the islamic laws and rules and what they do to people in those pig countries. There has been to many schools that have taught the children all about this, and the troubles it has brought about by the people.

  • john6185

    If parent homeschooled their children, it would mean that the government wouldn’t have total and complete control and Obama wants to “rechannel” or convert our children to what he wants them to be and he has a lot of help with liberal teachers, professors and the Democratic congress.  I don’t think-in fact I know that the average citizen isn’t aware of what Obama is doing.  When confronted, Obama will weasel and lie his way out of the discussion much like, “it won’t cost you a dime more and you can keep the health insurance you now have.”  
    I’ve never seen a politician overtly lie to the point that it was so obvious no one could miss the lying and deception.  I personally think Obama has been lying for so long that he believes some of the lies he tells.  They should make it a law that politician is entitled to 100 lies during the course of his term or forced to retire.

    Public school education is a disaster in the USA and despite constant cries for more  money the performance of students gets worse and worse.  Many places are spending $13,000.00 a year per student or more. The vast majority of states ‘ public schools now have more administrators than teachers. The function of many of these administrators is very questionable, other than it being a bloated  bureaucracy.  In inner city school it is quite comon for 1/3 of the minority students not to show up every third day. Half of blacks in these school don’t graduate. Of the students who graduate and go to college, many spend the first year or two of college in remedial courses catching up on things they should have learned in grade school. The effects spill over into colleges with half of students now dropping out of college.  Home schooled children are far more likely to have very high SAT scores, to be admitted to college and to the better colleges, and this is true regardless of how highly educated the parents are who are doing the home schooling. In a home setting with discipline and not the absolute chaos in the public school classrooms all children do much much better.

    • Daniel from TN

      Long term studies of home schooled graduates discovered some remarkable things.
      1. Home schoolers get the highest ACT and SAT scores in high school and the highest scores on pre-professional tests like the MCAT, DCAT, and Praxis in college.
      2. Home schoolers receive more academic scholarships to college, and do not require remedial courses before starting their freshman year in college.
      3. Home schoolers are more likely to finish college.  Their college grades are also usually higher.
      4. Home schoolers are more likely to enter professions such as medicine or law.
      5. Home schoolers usually advance (promotions) quicker on the job.
      The NEA wants this stopped because home schooling is doing exactly what they say can’t be done; AND, what the public schools should be doing.

      • BlueViolets

        Daniel from TN You have cited the exact reasons why they don’t want children home schooled. They don’t want intelligent, thinking and functioning adults.  They want stupid, uncomprehending robots.  Now if home schooling turned the children into vacant-eyed little Socialist/Democrat voting zombies they’d be getting federal funding.

        • hankster6

          BlueViolets Daniel from TN I beg to add to your reasoning. Obama’s agenda requires for kids to be indoctrinated. Considering that he does not have time to get his face right in front of every child, he has ensured that most teachers are not only union, they are his puppets. They are trained to to his indoctrination for him. You can believe what I am saying or not. Home schooling does not allow the kids to get the indoctrination, therefore, in due course, home schooling will, eventually, go away, even if it takes another executive order. One way other the other, without a doubt, if he stays in office much longer, it will happen. We can expect to be like communist Russia once was and still may be. I have never lived there, but I have good resources and know the way their kids are treated and schooled.

    • SandyTrank

      citizencompatriotmike You are right. I don’t know where they spend the money. There were many times my kids shared books because there weren’t enough to go around.

      • BlueViolets

        SandyTrank citizencompatriotmike I had to buy my kids books.  By the time they got to high school it was over $400 per child and that was for mostly used ones.  Some of the “required” books were never used.  And I did the school supply scam once too.  I just told the teachers I’d buy things as needed and saved about $100 a year.  They never used 3/4 of the stuff that was on the list and half of what was left they had from the year before.  Just a scam.  And then, of course, there were the property taxes to fund the school.  One would have thought with what I paid in taxes they could have at least bought books.

        • SandyTrank

          BlueViolets I was always under the impression going to public school, they supplied books! Surprise me to see they didn’t have enough for a class. I don’t have any in school now as my youngest graduated from college with her RN a year ago but even so we keep paying school taxes and if all of us continue to pay after our kids are no longer there, it seems to me, there should be no excuse for not being able to balance the school budget. I never thought of buying their books for them. We didn’t have ebay then either! lol

          SandyTrank BlueViolets My youngest graduated high school in 1984 and I’m stilling paying taxes for the schools.  I wouldn’t mind but the system started getting bad years ago and I don’t think they are getting much of an education now.  Although our schools aren’t as bad as some.

        • Evermyrtle

          BlueViolets SandyTrank yeah, homeschool and you will continue also, meaning you are paying twice for their for their education.

        • SandyTrank

          BlueViolets I agree. My Dad used to manage apartments and had to hire handy men from time to time and was amazed at how many couldn’t even fill out an application without multiple spelling errors. I think we got a better education than the young people are today for certain. I went back to college when my youngest was about to start kindergarten and I had to take the assessment testing to see if I was able to do college level work as they do everyone. I had been out of school almost 20 years and I scored in the 90′s whereas 70′s were considered average. I was surprised at that for certain and during first semester of nursing I heard a group of young girls complaining that a 65 should be passing and it wasn’t fair to have the passing grade so high. Well, it was Nursing and I think the standard should be high. We have to know so much and with peoples lives in our hands, barely passing won’t do.

    Government control of the children.  The pathway to total control in one generation.  Parents and all good folks should demand vouchers.  Vouchers will allow parents to send their children to the primary/secondary school(s) of their choice.  Home schooling and vouchers are a reap threat to the teacher union and the government.  Control and tax dollars.

    Re: the UN.  When is a group of third worlders that experienced the convenience of indoor plumbing for the first time when they went to the UN HQ in NYC dictating anything to this country?

    • hankster6

      BobDee To answer your question, since Obama starting residing in OUR white house. He wants them to have control, instead of himself. He is a wannabe dictator and since he does not know how, he runs to them for help and decision making. When he said that he was “leading from behind”, which is impossible, he meant the the UN was in front of him! He didn’t want to say that the UN is leading, but that is what he wants and I believe that is what he meant. You are right about them being a bunch of dictators, who, also have no clue about what they are doing, so Obama is in good company! We have no business, whatsoever, being in the UN, but if not for our money, they could not operate! Obama loves dictators and wishes that he could be one. That is why he bypasses congress as much as possible and uses as many executive orders as possible!

      • Tejano Jueto

        Obama is nothing more than a punk arse narcassistic wannabe Chicago thug! He’s a legend in his own mind and in the minds of his illiterate drone constituency. He is totally incompetent and a puppet to the left wing Demotwits. He’s world wide, hollow and only a micron deep!

        • hankster6

          Tejano Jueto I suspect that Obama is a radical Muslim. Most of us believe that Muslims are brain washed. Then he became a radical. Then he was elected via voter fraud, so he has the distinct honor to live in OUR white house, while he destroys our country, while no one has the GUTS to try to stop him. I am just adding to your description, which, also, sounds pretty accurate! We know that he can not think rationally.

    Democrats will do everything in their power, clean or dirty, to eliminate home schooling. They do this for two reasons.
    1. They have an obligation to the NEA. The NEA has contributed to Liberal coffers, both financially and politically, for decades.
    2. Home schooling produces graduates who are literate, intelligent, and capable of rational independent thought. All three of those are a direct threat to Liberalism.

  • oleinwi

    If I hear one more crying liberal:  “The Republicans hate women, the handicapped, children, pets, animals, the environment…”  Puh-leez.  This from the folks that are OK with the murder of late term babies.  And they claim to have some moral high ground?!!  Seriously??!!  We need to answer their rhetoric with rhetoric, I wish some would simply call them out, when they say crap like this, we need to counter with “At least we don’t murder the unborn!”.  NEXT!!

    • hankster6

      oleinwi I would recommend that you get to where you can just delete their remarks and go on. Remember this, most people believe that liberalism is a mental disorder, so they can not think rationally. Trying to reason with them is impossible, so just ignore them and keep on going. The only reason that I respond, sometimes, is so that other people can get an idea of who they are dealing with. Then I delete them as well.

  • texaselect

    My property taxes pay the local school district a couple thousand a year, I have no children in school as they all young adults now. The Democrats are itching for a blood bath, their own blood, if they continue down this path of UN destruction aimed at our kids. We will not comply with indoctrination, gun control or the murder of infants.  The tipping point is close at hand. That is why Obama and the communists at FEMA signed a deal with RUSSIA to provide security forces on US Soil in the event of a national emergency. When that happens it will be civil war.

  • Tejano Jueto

    Remember Billary’s, “It takes a village to raise a child”? Since then the Democrats have sold out entirely to the Marxist Collective Philosophy.  In Obama’s recent speeches overseas he spews about a “Global Middle Class”.  Once again he succesfully deploys the class card. This time playing to both the Euro-socialists and his nanny state progressive drones back home.

    The public education system here in Texas and across the nation is broken and cannot be fixed. Public schools have become nothing more than local hubs for a “guberment job” with pension benefits. Schools across the nation now have twice as many administrators as they have educators. Like any public entity under the control of the Federal government it can only be mediocre at best. Lets face it, any private company that hires people not entirely on merit and promotes its employees based entirely on seniority cannot compete in a global economy.  The reason the Swedes have one the best education systems in the world is simple. Their government skims the top 2% of all the education students from their Universitys, pays them well and rewards or fires them based on performance . The rest of the education students move on to other careers. Unfotunatly that will not work in a civil service system where protectionist policys guarantee continued employment.

    The GOOD CONSTITUTIONAL COPS will support our CITIZEN’S ARREST of ANY cop or politician, trying to DISARM law abiding American CITIZENS, by cuffing them and taking them to JAIL where they will be booked, arraigned, and scheduled for trial on the charge of TREASON for actively engaging in the OVERTHROW of the U.S. Constitution by trying to enforce UN-LAWFUL ORDERS overriding the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 10th, amendments that have NEVER BEEN REPEALED and therefore are STILL the law of the land.
    We’re running out of time, folks. Send this message to all you know on Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, phone calls, and personal conversations.
    We can have our country back in a HEARTBEAT and without having to fire a SINGLE SHOT or engage in overthrowing the government.
    This is LEGAL ACTION that we can ALL take and MUST take TOGETHER.
    There’s 80 MILLION of us and only 6 MILLION of them TOTAL, and 3 MILLION of their six million will JOIN OUR SIDE if we step out together.
    That leaves a “puny” 3 MILLION against 83 MILLION of us. NO GOVERNMENT can overthrow its CITIZENRY if its CITIZENS are CARRYING their guns on them everywhere in PUBLIC. Criminals of ALL ILK would be FOOLS to take us on.
    By the way, my name is Thom Raasio, and I will be running as a “write-in” candidate for President of the United States in 2016, if I survive that long.

    If we don’t do THIS, Patriots, then America is taking her LAST DYING BREATH and the we will soon hear the FINAL death rattle in her throat as she PERISHES while we did NOTHING BUT TALK!!!
    WE HAVE TO SHOW UP AT EVERY LOCAL, VILLAGE, AND CITY COUNCIL MEETING ACROSS AMERICA, FOLLOWING THE BELOW LAID OUT PLAN, AND WE CAN HAVE OUR COUNTRY BACK WITHOUT FIRING A SHOT IN 30 -60 DAYS.
    READ THIS PATRIOTS………THEN TALK TO EACH OTHER AND ACT!!! We cannot count on the majority of police to do their jobs……..we have to step up and do it, AND WE CAN!!!
    We The People don’t have to put up with ANY of this nonsense if we just BAN TOGETHER and “become” The United States Constitution Police Force, and WE THE PEOPLE will do what all police forces, combined, are NOT doing. WE THE PEOPLE will PROTECT and DEFEND the Constitution of the United States of America from ALL ENEMIES both foreign and (especially) DOMESTIC.
    WE CAN DO THIS “OVER-NIGHT” without having to fire a shot or acting like we’re overthrowing the government.
    TYRANNY cannot take place if Americans, all 80 MILLION or more “hunters”, will STEP OUT TOGETHER, just like on Opening Day of hunting season. FULLY LOCKED AND LOADED.
    Do it THIS TIME (because we are OUT of time) on July 4, 2013, at 9:00 a.m. EST (6:00 a.m. PST)
    The ONLY DIFFERENCE this time, is, WE NEVER TAKE OUR GUNS OFF AGAIN. We wear our guns as EVERY DAY APAREL, just like FREE America did in the 1800′s.
    We will NOT go about KILLING each other or trying to OVERTHROW the government. The purpose is to keep the government from OVERTHROWING the CITIZENS.

Before the election I was blocked from some of the liberal sites because they did not want to see the truth!We are just preaching to the choir here!Very few libs ever come to these sites so let Us all try to get more info out to those who really have no clue because they are so blinded by the left!!   Even Fox news is slow to get out a lot of news that is against Obama or the rest of the communists!!

    Romans 13:1 KJV
    Let every soul be subject unto the HIGHER powers. For there is no power but of God : the powers that be are ordained of God.
    3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil.
    4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But IF YOU DO THAT WHICH IS EVIL, BE AFRAID ; for he bears not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil. 5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject , not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake
    In AMERICA, the Constitution abiding CITIZEN is the HIGHER POWER over those who do NOT follow the Constitution.
    WE THE PEOPLE, the LEGAL citizens, in AMERICA hold the CREATOR as the HIGHEST AUTHORITY in the land.
    The Declaration of Independence, and the United States Constitution DOCUMENTS are 2nd HIGHEST in rank.
    3rd HIGHEST in rank is, and are, WE THE PEOPLE; the Constitutionally LEGAL CITIZENS of America.
    LAST is the 4th HIGHEST in rank, the “hired and elected citizens” we placed in government jobs, the LYING TRAITORS who swore an oath to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States against ALL ENEMIES both foreign and domestic.

  • ThomRaasio

    You’re just like every other PHONY police force in this state…….you’re ALL gutless wonders who will not step up and SECURE the STATE by taking down these Constitutional ANARCHIST.
    How is CALIFORNIA the lead in ILLEGALLY DISARMING the LEGAL, law abiding citizens, and urinating on their 2nd amendment RIGHTS if YOU, the “mighty, mouthy, militia” are doing your job???
    You’re the LEGAL MILITIAS……..what a JOKE.
    Calling for the people to step up and become the United States Constitutional Police Force, is NOT a call for a NATIONAL MILITIA. It’s a call to CITIZENS to take care of each other in their own immediate vicinity and then if there is a problem, call existing police forces for BACK UP DUTY ONLY and they are to be subordinate to the CITIZENS.
    There will be no HIERARCHY to the USCPF, every CITIZEN has equal authority to protect and defend the constitution, which is the ONE AND ONLY THING that is needed for America to be FREE.
    But you police, para-military, militia, types are ALL ALIKE……..NONE of you are defending the constitution with anything more than TALK, when you are ARMED and have the LEGAL AUTHORITY TO ACT to save the STATE. You ALL either participate in GUN CONFISCATION or stand by and do nothing while others are CONFISCATING legally owned weapons. They are even BALLSY enough to print it and show it in the media, and STILL, all of you do NOTHING.
    SO HERE’S WHAT “CAN” BE DONE, and it is LEGAL, and YOU have the AUTHORITY to support the American CITIZENS in this PLAN OF ACTION, and we can have our STATE and NATION back within 30 days without having to fire a shot……..IF YOU WILL DO YOUR PART.

  • ThomRaasio

    DEMOCRATS CAN DO ANYTHING THEY WANT as long as they find SLIMEY ways to get their bills through congress or by Obama using his czars.  Is there ANY DOUBT to the “truth” of that statement??
    Do you want your country back LEGALLY, with no bloodshed, and within 30 days??   If so, read the following, and follow THE PLAN………………if you don’t really want the country back………….just keep doing the same-o / same-o.
    This will take you about 8 minutes to read if you are a slow reader………….8 minutes that can save the country.  The PROBLEMS are set forth and the ANSWER is set forth in this article written to a Militia Site.
    Got a question for you there, sport. What USE is the MILITIA in “any state” in America today???
    I live in California where the United States Constitution is used for TOILET PAPER by our elected officials who swore an oath to protect and defend it.
    What good is a Militia in California??? What are YOU DOING??? “A well regulated Militia, being necessary for the SECURITY OF THE STATE, the RIGHT of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
    Any of you California Militia IDIOTS ever heard those words?? If the answer is YES………..then what have you EVER DONE for the “security of the State”?? YOU DID NOTHING
    THOUSANDS upon thousands of UN-LAWFUL ORDERS were handed out and LOCAL POLICE enforced these UNCONSTITUTIONAL LAWS and YOU did not step up and STOP them by ARRESTING them and charging them with TREASON for “actively” engaging in the OVERTHROW of the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 10th amendments to the constitution.

    • PaulBrown1

      ThomRaasio My question Thom, is if you live in Calif. and you know what is going on and that the politicians aren’t doing what you want and not upholding the constitution, then why the hell do you keep putting that loser Pelooosi back in office again. We all know this broad needs to go, she spent $ 10,000 dollars a night for ahotel room in Hawaii last year of the taxpayers money, and she sees nothing wrong with that. When was the last time she sent you on a vacation like that and someone else paid for it?

      • ThomRaasio

        PaulBrown1 ThomRaasio   Hey, Paul.  We “conservatives” in California are NOT any happier about Pelosi, than you are.  The conservatives, like myself, did NOT vote for her.

      • citizencompatriotmike

        PaulBrown1 ThomRaasio 
        The majority of the voters elect our officials. The Democrats have stolen money from Peter in taxes to pay Paul to get Paul’s vote. As Romney pointed out Obama bought the majority. However there is plenty of evidence Obama also rigged the elections. In Philadelpia 15 districts had 100% of the vote for Obama. Impossible. Many states had districts where 125 to 145% of reigistered voters voted, and they voted predominantly for  Obama. It was a close election and Obama did everything to foil his opponents. The IRS attack on Tea Party conservatives was a part of the assault. Don’t blame a conservative for his state electing someone like Pelosi or Norten. California is so left wing it is ready to fall into the ocean. My suggestion for people earning any money is to leave California. If your on welfare, stay there until the money runs out.

        • MichaelBurch

          citizencompatriotmike PaulBrown1 ThomRaasio there is a lot of merit to what you are saying..if the idiot RNC had listened to the regular people who make up the republican party and had someone we wanted to vote for..we would have a different man in the whitehouse..Obama received fewer votes this time than the first time..he ‘won’ because so many republicans choose to sit at home and not vote this time…so I blame all those people who did not exercise their voting rights

    Democrats, this is not about Democrats, there are no Democrats anymore younger than 50 years old. The Democratic Party has ceased to exist but those in charge have kept the name. The people in charge now Are Social Progressives and they are very successfully slithered their way into their positions of power so quietly that most Democrats didn’t even know it was happening.

    The Democratic Party was the People’s party they were the spokesman for the working man of what would be called blue-collar workers today. My Grandmother and Grandfather were very staunch Democrats, My Grandmother was a schoolteacher for 37 years My Grandfather worked for the state of Oregon for over 40 years and was the president Of the Union that represented the state employees. These people raised me so I think I have a good idea of what was to be a Democrat. I thank God that both of these fantastic people have passed on because if they hadn’t they would surely die from shame.

    This brings me to my point the pseudo-Democrats can only maintain control of America if they control our young people in the learning environment. In our local schools history is not even taught in high school they said it costs too much. Social Progressives after taking control of our schools have progressively dumbed down our young people, rewritten history, eliminated morality, and made sure that young people were aware that no matter what she do there’s no repercussions if it feels good do it. They cannot have homeschooled children because these children know the truth and they tell other young people in the truth has a way of getting out there. Therefore homeschool cannot be allowed because it teaches the truth.

    This is done on purpose and has been planned by our own government. Christianity will cease to exist one day is the worlds goal because the heads of this world are threatened of losing power and not being in charge because they do not believe in God!  If they did believe in God they would try very hard to do what is right because of accountability in the Bible states they will have to answer one day to the creator himself.  No one ever said it was going to be easy, but there is right from wrong! So they took the easy way out and follow there own ways because who wants to be accountable?  That means they do not believe in God. Instead they the government create problems and try to be the  understanding of them and have crummy lawyers to make laws to make things worse.  Life is simple, it is people who make it complicated. Rich and powerful people were home schooled and that is why history is important.  Journals of our great leaders are important because what they had a vision and truth but are left out of the pages of history books because what family owns the Reuters and books?  So education is very important and your not going to get it with public schools because they tell you how to think and not how to think!

      All Rights Reserved  The government wants to become Omnipotent, the source of all rights, all wealth, and all  power over the rest of the people. If God is the source of human rights and our human rational nature, the government can’t claim the authority and power it wants. They are conning us all. Even without God people will realize government is just a small group of people who are ruling the rest of the masses. Communism was suppose to distribute the wealth equally to all according to each person’s needs. The Communist Party members had a LOT of needs so they got private Dachcas (summer homes on the Black Sea), private hospitals with the best health care, private grocery stores with food instead of food lines, the best cars built in the woorld (usually Mercedes, not Ladas), etc.

    The one thing I have found with nearly all of the destructive laws that Democrats have pushed for were clothed in the name of “Good” for some special group.  Oooh, and what heartless jerks the Conservatives are for not wanting to help those poor individuals the Dems. are trying so valiantly to help.  In most cases, the unintended consequences (or intended) become a burden for the rest of society.  Gay Marriage, Obamacare, Equal Rights,  Amnesty for Law Breaking border crossers, Guaranteed Home loans for minorities not based on qualifications, but on race and economic status….. on and on it goes.  In cases such as equal rights, it has done more to damage the group of individuals it was supposedly written for than it has to help them.  In other cases such as guaranteed home loans it has caused damage to the whole economy.

        BobE – it’s simple, when the “equal rights” aren’t legitimate equal rights.  Leftists, across the century have promised equal rights to their citizens – whether it be Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, F.D.R., L.B.J. or Dear Leader. 
        Leftists’ disavow the individual equal rights of the Declaration and advocate group, or community rights of society.  The rights that God gives are unalienable.  The rights granted by gov’t are controlled by the gov’t. and always involve robbing others of their God-given rights.
        e.g. Dear Leader, like socialists before him have promised equality of outcomes.  As he told Joe the Plumber, he’s going to “spread the wealth around.”  Socialists do this by taking wealth (private property) of others by force. 
        Progressivism, socialism, – democrats’ economic policy can’t produce good results when it is based on a false ideology and erroneous policies.

        BobE WayneCC Equal rights have never been about giving equal opportunities, it has been about equal outcomes.  The government created a skewed image of a problem and went about resolving it in a political manner for the sole purpose of garnering votes, and to “look good” in the eyes of those constituents.  Equal rights in the free market of jobs means that we have to hire based on percentages rather than ability.  To that end, many unqualified people are placed in positions they have never earned, and do not belong.  They themselves know it, and the people working for or with them know it.  All it has done is to create a sense of deserving among those who have not earned it, and a sense of resentment among those who should have the job.  I saw the worst cases when I was in the military in the 70′s.  In the 1 year technical school I attended, we were allowed three tests below 70%.  After that you were removed from the program and given another field to work in.  I had three “people of color” in my class each of which failed 5 or more tests, but were pushed on through to graduate.  The Military had to show that they were including these “people of color” in proper percentages in highly technical fields.  I was the honor graduate in my class.  Later in my career, I saw these same people gain rank quicker than I.  The Military needed more “people of color” in the upper ranks and were fast-tracking them through to the top. Everyone who knew them knew that was the case, and they knew it themselves.  It did not promote pride in their job, or equal opportunity for anyone.  Our government is proving constantly that it is not race, sex, or religiously blind.  In fact those are the exact factors used for these un-equal rights!

        BobE WayneCC Quotas for minorities, for example, has horribly harmed the black community.   Their culture thrived (Harlem was a cultural mecca and safe to walk alone at night), and was economically on par with other groups through the 1960s.  The fly in the ointment was Democratic southern states thumbing their nose at the 14th amendment (equal protection), and ignoring whites lynching blacks, while punishing blacks accused of a crime by white with the flimsiest evidence.  Whites, but not blacks could carry guns in southern states – the NRA was born smuggling guns to blacks.  Ditto for water fountains, schools, restrooms, buses, etc, etc.
        So finally, a Republican majority passes the Civil Rights act, using Federal power to enforce equal protection, as required by the 14th amendment.  But Democrats were clever.  In a move reminiscent of Judo, they turned the momentum subtly against blacks, by going *beyond* equal protection, and demanding special privileges for blacks as “payment” for all those decades of (Democratic) oppression.  Sadly, black people ate it up, enjoying more and more special privileges by voting Democratic, while becoming less and less competent, until most of them now exist on a Welfare Plantation, their only task to vote Democratic.

      • Daniel from TN

        First, you have to look at the the definition of “equal rights.” There are two definitions of equal rights, from a political point of view. The Conservative definition means EVERYONE should have the same opportunity to EARN whatever they want. The Liberal definition means CERTAIN GROUPS should RECEIVE whatever they want, whether they have earned it or not.

        This is just another point where a leftist defends their bankrupt ideology by trying to divert attention to something else.  In this case – the republican party.

    Another freedom the liberals are trying to take away for American citizens.  Is this because if some children are being home schooled they aren’t being properly brainwashed and indoctrinated into the liberal / Democrat / socialist / marxist / communist ideology and regime?  Why is it that Democrats constantly think that they know better what is good or right for everyone else?  Why aren’t they proved wrong when they have so many scandals perpetrated by Democrats?  Why aren’t they proved wrong when they have people like  Robert Menendez representing the Democrat party?  Democrats should start trying to fix their own personal lives before they try to fix other peoples lives that aren’t broken!!!!!

          BobE Always a Marine Joy J China granted some economic freedoms, having seen that a socialist economy doesn’t work, while retaining totalitarian control of other aspects of life – education, number of children, religion, political dissent, etc.
          We have 3 destructive forces at work in America.
          1) Democrats have abandoned their Libertarian roots and embraced big government Socialism, with all the economic death that entails.  (Note that successful Socialist countries like Denmark are decentralized, with economic decisions made by local communities – the central government just collects taxes and distributes them, and is very small.)
          2) Republicans have abandoned their Constitutional roots, and embraced big government “neo-conservatism”, which attempts to use government coercion to make people act “good” (according to whoever is currently in power).  Old fashioned Democrats have rightly compared neocons to the Taliban.  The “moral majority” did not use constitutional means to advance their otherwise admirable moral agenda.  Government can’t make you good, anymore than it can make anyone outside of the ruling elite rich.
          3) Barrack Hussein, who fails E-verify (regardless of where he was born), has shown by his actions that he is, in fact, a radical Islamist (the “christian” church he attended had very similar goals to Islamists) who allies himself with the most radical Islamists, and is hell bent on killing and enslaving Christians in the Middle East – and in America as soon as we are all disarmed.

    We have home-schooled for years.    We have needed to spend hard earned dollars to purchase specialized insurance to cover attacks to our choice to do so.  The attack from governmental and quasi-governmental opponents is a constant threat.  We pay our taxes to support the schools we do not participate in.   It is the price we pay for an (indisputably) SUPERIOR educational method.   You can try to fool yourself as much as you may want . . . but the public school environment is just glorified day care.   They cater to the lowest common denominator.    Yes, there are exceptions . . . but tenure is a killer.    Political correctness is a scourge that blights our social scene, throughout.    This UN treaty is another example of first phase thinking . . . not looking at the repercussions or the end result.   Our legislators are very accomplished at this and are pawns in this administrations continued efforts to dumb down the masses and fundamentally trans form America . . .

      joeinz58  You are right! What education we got was far better than it is now and my point is, my son did not pass the assessment testing when he entered college. He was an A and B+ student in English as well as others and it was the English portion he failed miserably. He took their special classes intended to bring him up to college level and he failed that. He didn’t want me to proof read any of his assignments because I found too many errors so he quit letting me help him. He and I both (I finished my education late) went to college at the same time and I passed with flying colors with an almost 20 year old education. We got far better than they are getting now. I hate what they are doing to our kids.

          yes, a child can just be a trouble maker and refuse to do homework and learn in school. In the 1950s when I was in public schools we had two troublemakers who disrupted the classroom for everyone. they were thrown out and sent to rfeform school. that no longer happens. It is demeaning to expel a bad apple so now the entire classroom is pure chaos and no one learns.  Oh, and yes, there are plenty of illiterate and lazy teachers who just put in time trying to keep class room order each day while they collect their pay check and pension. The public schools will not even fire a pedophile but they put the guy in a rubber room at full salary. In a private school bad teachers are fired immediately and unmanaeable kids are expelled. It is not a right to be in a school but it is privilege that one has to respect and earn to stay there.

If you don’t think a child can take control, go into most supermarkets where children are smarting back to their parents and the mothers, especially, do nothing about it. That sort of behavior would happen with me, just once. After I got though with the child, they would not come back for seconds! No, I would no beat the child.

From what I have seen and heard about public schools, espcially with Obama’s indoctrination tactics, in no way would I have a child going to those schools and I am not a Catholic.

In fact, it takes very  little discipline, as I am sure you are aware, to keep control. Even one that is out of control, can still be handled with very little discipline and no one gets in any trouble. Now, if the child lies about abuse, that is a different story.

I scold them with my tone of voice and they look sick, cower and stop the bad behaviour. I do ot think a spanking is ever necessary but some kids are really uncontrollable and arrogant. Many jurisdictions will probably take a child away from a parent that spanks a child, so I do not advise doing this. Take treats away, Keep a bad kid grounded. Take away allowance.

          citizencompatriotmike hankster6 Sabre223 citizencompatriotmike: In most cases, I would agree with you. You know as well as I do that you don’t have to beat the crap out of a kid to get their attention. That is why God gave us well padded butts. That is why the Bible says spare the rod and spoil the child. You can punish a child without beating the crap out of them. A couple of quick pats on the butt, to let them know who is boss, generally is enough. Sure there are some idiots that would call that abuse, but I call them idiots for a reason. They are! If a child respects the parent, there will be no problem. If a child does not, then it takes a little more and a lot of love mixed in. There is never an excuse for beating. The problem is who you ask about the definitions! A child that is smart enough to be corrected without touching them, that is a real blessing!

      • Lerojist

        SandyTrank joeinz58  A few years ago, I started to go to the local community college, but needed to take beginning math, to take the courses I needed.  I was in my early 50′s..  The teacher told us that we had to do the problem solving the way he taught or he would give us an F grade.  By the end of the class, I was totally confused.  I just knew I was going to fail, so when the final tests came, I did the problems the way I was taught when I was young.  I received my test back and received an A.  My answers were correct.   Several young students, out of high school, received C’s, and D’s, saw my test and said what did you do?  They looked at my test.  They were confused.  After this experience, I knew there was something really wrong on how they taught.  The way I learned years ago, was so much easier, and I came up with the answers and young students couldn’t with the new system.
        In another class, Algebra,  the teacher said, right off, he was not trained in the class, was a chemistry teacher, and more or less had to fill in.   All the teacher did was repeat what we could read out of the book.  In the end I taught myself Algebra, but just couldn’t grasp the end lesson.  I asked a student one day, while walking out “is it just me, but I had problems in the class?  The student said, no it wasn’t  me, and said the teacher  is at fault.  I was so disappointed.  I began to think, the educational system is failing our youth.  I feel they want our young to fail.
        When my children were going to high school, I had a talk with the principal and he said if the citizenry were smart they would get rid of teacher’s tenure.  I also, had a talk with a former student from my high school days, that was a school counselor, and she told me the music of the day (rock/roll, heavy metal, and other loud, bad music) induces the young people to take drugs.   I believe it.  I started to put the pieces together.
        Simply put, an enemy within has infiltrated our school system, our government, media, entertainment world, TV, movies, music, finance, church, the list goes on…
        As a nation, we must turn back to God’s Word, laws, instruction.  May God have mercy on the nation.

          Lerojist SandyTrank joeinz58  I agree wholeheartedly! I never would have made it thru to get my RN without the Lord. Everything I did, every test I took was bathed in prayer. When I took my NYS board exams, at that time it was 4 four hour exams over 2 days. I remember reading the questions and knowing the answers and then looking below for it. There were only 3 or 4 that I guessed answers. With nursing they give you mostly correct choices but only 1 is the best answer so it was the Lord. I prayed as the tests began and felt His Presence to the point of weeping. I am not that smart but the education I did get was far above that of today. High school is not preparing our kids for college anymore. They told my son it was just like going up a grade. NOT! Praise the Lord he has a profession and doing well but it too was the Lord’s doing, not the quality of his education. I too noticed the young ones not doing as well as I did. I too had a weak area and that was Algebra. I had to take that again in college but I had the best math professor ever! Sam would go over the homework, answer questions thoroughly and then have us start the next days and go around and sit down with us and give us the one on one we needed. He was a treasure! I did end up with a B- but it was good enough for me. I failed it in high school and retook it in summer school barely passing it. I didn’t think I would ever have to look at an algebra problem again. Ha! They are teaching them now to add from left to right instead of right to left as we learned it. The indoctrination and brainwashing is changing them into selfish unfeeling people with many coming out of school with no sense of family either. Wasn’t it Khrushchev who pounded his shoe on the podium and declared they would have our children and take over the United States without firing a shot? I remember my Dad hitting the roof over it. I was still in school at the time. Our kids need our prayers, they are way over due.We see how well things work out when they do it mans way. Our only hope is in the Lord!

    They will certainly try… they want all kids in communist government run schools so they can indoctrinate them… Obama.. just like Hitler!!

    Paul, Esq       Common Code in the American school system being pushed by liberals is ethe vehicle to destroy home schooling

  • PaulEsq

    The federal educational program known as Common Core is designed to destroy home-schooling as we know it.  It is also written to re-write American history.  This program needs to be opposed in every legislature and state department of education.

  • joeinz58

    Agreed, Paul !    A perfect example is the revisionist system in Texas.   To this day . . . I do not know how Rick Perry lives day-by-day with that system in place.    It is designed to destroy the American ethic and steer the minds of our kids to habitual dissatisfaction and revolt.    To be a liberal is to be dissatisfied with everything and force the result on the entire populous !    Try to find a really informed liberal . . . and if you do, test them to see when the last time they smiled . . . before that ghastly SCOTUS decision, of course.

    The Democrats will end home schooling, with, or without a treaty, if they can find a way to do it.  Home schooling interferes with their policy of uniform social and political indoctrination for everyone, from pre-school to graduate school.  Can’t have people who won’t go along with the program.

    • PaulBrown1

      Bisley I guess thats going to be to bad for Ovomit, because I know a many who homeschool and has no intentions of stopping now or in the near future, and I wouldn’t either. I wouldn’t be teaching my kids about the life of the hateful puke muslims who go around chopping heads off of people who don’t agree with them.

        PaulBrown1 Bisley That is just what you need to teach so they know what to look for.  The TRUTH will set you free.

      Bisley I fully agree MR. B. it’s called “Group-Think” and it came out of the Left’s “Talking Points”
      After all they think, “What makes more ‘noise’ one lone voice, or millions shouting the same thing at the same time?

    Of course they’ll TRY….
    They don’t want to miss out on ALL of the children that they want to brainwash into their liberal sick way of thinking…

    Congressmen who willfully take action against our Constitution and Bill or Rights such as the 2nd Amendment the banning of firearms, open borders, mass amnesty, the federal take over of our education through common core and now a national school board etc. are saboteurs and should be arrested, exiled, or hanged.
    The Democrat party no longer represents we the people, they represent our enemies, both foreign and domestic.

    Homeschooling is hated by the socialists here because it precludes the emersion inculcation that the public school kids get in socialistic ideals….. they fear it actually…..right up there with the guns we have that protect us from total tyranny.  And what is a free mind?  A free mind is the deadliest tool against tyrannical government there is.

        Bob, I’m sure you’re not surprised that I can see the error of your statement – which you continuously demonstrate.  Doing a little CSI work, and using the facts that come from developmental theory, going backwards from the evidence that you supply for investigation on a daily basis (with multiple examples each day), it’s obvious that you would have had to have been mentored, influenced and nurtured (if you can use the word in this context) by a host of liberal trolls and weaned on kool aid.

      • MikeSlaney

        BobE Tejano Jueto Really now, I was just thinking the same about your statement, It is amazing how the blind liberals can tell you how to see.  If I had to guess, your battle is not with homeschoolers, it is with Jesus Christ and submission.  You can choose to willingly bow now with grace given, or bow later in judgement, either way we all will bow to the LORD OF LORD’S and KING OF KINGS.

      Lucky3511 Well said. The person you are responding to must be an Obama supporter. Obama just loves the UN dictators. Why we are even members of the UN is beyond my thinking!

    The only reason the liberals want to stop home school is because most of them can’t and they want all children to be dumb just like themselves and grow up living in a world full of fools this way they can grow more liberals  look at how they have already wreck the public school system maybe they should try teaching them selves because they are all very very sick people no matter the so call certificate they might hold their ideas are stupid period.

    • hankster6

      lowpockets68 I believe that Obamafest (my term) required kids to be indoctrinated as soon as possible. Home schooling and private schools prevent that. He can try to do away with home schooling but getting rid of private schools is more of a challenge. He hasn’t figured that one out, yet. The communist Russia method is to remove kids from home and put them in government run schools, where they, not only get indoctrinated, the kids are told what they will study. Of course, the parents have no say! Keeping the parents out of the loop is what this agenda is all about. If parents are not told by the kids, they will not learn because the schools will lie to cover up what is happening. We can no longer trust our government nor our school authorities to tell us the truth! If you believe either, you are in for a rude awakening!

      The left has always been subject to “group think.”  It is manifested today by P.C.  They need it to protect their ego – to be part of the “elite” (established on the basis of group think itself, not on the basis of actual, verifiable accomplishment or real contributions to society).
      e.g. they see themselves as the party of compassion and engaged in a “war on poverty” that resulted in billions wasted and more people than ever in poverty.
      e.g. They attempted to effect “social justice” and the Marxist “right” of universal home ownership, and in the 50s-70s created huge public housing tracts that quickly devolved into urban ghettos of poverty and crime.  This was followed by Jimmy “The Palestinians’ Pal” Carter’s goal of getting people into homes w/ no down payment etc., expanded by “Slick Willy” Clinton, and later corrupted by Blarney Frank, Chris Dodd, et. al. which led to the largest recession since the ’30′s.
      The lefties parrot the party line, but instead of the cracker, they get the group hug of the others in the self-deluded mob.

    Common Law vs. Central Planning (1 Samuel 14:24–52)

    Strange as it may sound, a main theme running through chapter 14 is that proper civil government must originate with the people. This is not to deny the divine origin of law and government, but rather to argue that the practical execution of God’s Law and godly government in human society must not be left to a professional elite, an establishment, etc. Instead, godly government can only arise amidst a godly people.
    On the flip side of this, when wicked kings rule you can guarantee it is an expression of wickedness in the populace. This leads to two phenomena: first, the abandonment of God’s Law in civil government leads to the creation of arbitrary statutes, usually in an effort to glorify and perpetuate the greatness of the wicked establishment, or special interests associated with it. Second, along with this comes and ever-increasing difficulty  of returning to liberty before total tyranny or social collapse comes about. This latter phenomenon itself has two parts: 
    1) efforts at restoration and revival will almost always have to originate as grassroots efforts. These will at first comprise a minority, and the minority will have to fight uphill. This we saw in the last sermon. 
    2) The longer tyranny is allowed to creep, the more entrenched it becomes, the more evil it does, and the more difficult it becomes to remove. Yet even here we will see that God can move even complacent masses to withstand tyrants and override tyrannical laws.
