Articles: Education: Playing Games with Recess

Education in America will make you crazy. There is hardly a part of it that is not corrupted by ideology and contaminated by sophistical thinking. What could be simpler to understand than recess? When you’re talking about little children, you’re talking about puppies. They need to run around until they fall down laughing on the grass.

George Washington Remains America’s Rock Star!

GEORGE WASHINGTON – OUR GREAT FORTUNE George Washington was and remains the rock star of America. With apologies for casting this great man in what can be thought of as a vulgar term, one reaches for ways to illuminate for today’s citizens the monumental perfection of soul in the man.



Politicians Take Note

One thing our Founding Fathers could not foresee…was a nation governed by professional politicians who had a vested interest in getting reelected. They probably envisioned a fellow serving a couple of hitches and then looking…forward to getting back to the farm. Ronald Wilson Reagan

Former California Governor Ronald Wilson Reagan and later President of the United States saw professional politicians as an enemy of the state. Today’s politicians may have never worked the farm but they sure are giving away the farm. The current climate of Washington Politics makes one wonder if the home of the brave and the land of the free is being sold out beneath our feet by the very ones who are supposed to be watching out for our interests.

When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice;But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.Prov 29:2 (NKJV)

The God of Israel said, The Rock of Israel spoke to me: ’He who rules over men must be just, Ruling in the fear of God.2 Sam 23:3 (NKJV)

Your princes are rebellious, And companions of thieves; Everyone loves bribes, And follows after rewards. They do not defend the fatherless, Nor does the cause of the widow come before them.Isaiah 1:23 (NKJV)

Now that half of the voting public has re-elected spendthrift Obama for another round of spending we must brace now for the unending raiding of our bank accounts. Anyone who believes that taxing the RICH will put even the slightest dent in the huge hole Obama has dug for us is kidding themselves. There will be tax increases alright, lots of them, on lots of things and on most of the American population.

DON’T worry those of you who do not pay any income taxes, you shall not see any change to your budgets. Your stimulus checks will continue to come to you and you will probably even get a cost of living increase besides. Those Americans who do not have to actually earn their incomes will not have to worry since no one will ask you to SHARE THE PAIN. You shall be exempt from any obligation to repay any of the borrowed money that was given to you.

As for the rest of you, you will be asked to bring over buckets of dirt to fill in the CRATER that was dug all the way to China. Resistance is futile since half of the country wants it this way. You shall be asked to fill-in this hole regardless of the fact that you told them not dig it in the first place, nor provided the shovels to dig the hole. Ignore the fact that your objections to the project were ignored, you still will have to pony up and contribute. AFTER ALL it is only fair.

Again I need to reiterate that anyone who receives a government check or is paid from the general fund will not see any reductions in their incomes and in fact might actually see a cost of living increase. This is to be expected and a reward for your faithful service to the cause.

Back to the rest of you louts. If you ask why we are asking you to fill-up the hole it is because we intend to dig another one and we need the dirt. OKAY AMERICA grab your shovels and start to dig oh I mean fill-in the hole.

Ain’t it grand to be an American? Aren’t you proud to serve your fellow-man and willing to sacrifice for the good of the cause? What is the cause you ask? CAUSE WE SAY SO!

A Presidential Greeting for the New Year

Official Portrait of President Ronald Reagan.

“I’ve always thought New Year’s Day was an especially American tradition, full of the optimism and hope we’re famous for in our daily lives — an energy and confidence we call the American spirit. Perhaps because we know we control our own destiny, we believe deep down inside that working together we can make each new year better than the old. … Let us renew our faith that as free men and women we still have the power to better our lives, and let us resolve to face the challenges of the new year holding that conviction firmly in our hearts. That, after all, is our greatest strength and our greatest gift as Americans.” —Ronald Reagan

A Christmas Greeting from Ronald Reagan

Official Portrait of President Ronald Reagan.

“In spite of everything, we Americans are still uniquely blessed, not only with the rich bounty of our land but by a bounty of the spirit — a kind of year-round Christmas spirit that still makes our country a beacon of hope in a troubled world and that makes this Christmas and every Christmas even more special for all of us who number among our gifts the birthright of being an American.” —Ronald Reagan

via Brief for Monday, December 19, 2011 – Editions – PatriotPost.US.

It is difficult to continually listen to all the bad news coming across the airwaves lately. The world is in a state of unrest, the world economy is failing, the American people are being told by their leaders that we are selfish and greedy, the productive in our society are being demonized by those who are supposed to be looking out for America’s interests, and yet there is not other place I would rather be than in the United States of America. I know, like Ronald Reagan, that dispite America’s shortcomings, she is endowed with the grace of God by the people who live and work here. Thank you to all my fellow Americans and may God bless us one and all this Christmas season.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
