Beware the Sleeping Lions:

While the powers that may be, are intent upon taking away the Constitution and our inherent rights there are many who will not let this happen, whether their actions are Constitutional or Highlander style they will be a force to reckoned with.

Never in the history of the United States have the citizens backed down from a fight, and never has this government yet had to deal with citizen soldiers of the Constitution.

In 1776, King George made the mistake in his interpretation of the will of the colonists in their desire for freedom, and after two-hundred years, do you really think that we would just give it up, as the expression goes, I say never, never will the people allow this to occur, the people of the United States will awaken, and awaken with the knowledge that our government has betrayed their trust and fidelity, and the people will avenge their honor and reclaim the honor of their country that has O?so rightly been given by the people of the world.

We once where, and will be again the greatest nation on earth, bar none. Beware the people for once the Lions are awakened, the sheep of the government will tremble with fear, and the people shall persevere, the Republic will rise again.

I think that is enough for now, but I think you can now understand my desire and devotion in and for the protection of our Constitution.

QUOTE (free2Bme @ Jun 16 2003, 10:28 AM)
As a result, children who would otherwise grow up to have bright futures, are denied the same access to an education as the Upper-Middle Class White Protestant children.  I do not think that we need more laws to govern education, but we need enforcement of the laws that we do have.  I have a child with a disability, who has been denied an education by a self-righteous school district in the past, and I have had to learn to be ever vigilant, year after year, or the school will dilute his educational program into a watered-down babysitting service again.

Ask me this 8 years ago and I would have given you a different answer, but in my opinion the whole school system across the U.S. needs to be overalled. My daughter, in the 9th grade, barely knew her addition, subtraction and times table. I can't even begin to tell you the battles with the absurd power trip teachers that had no interest in my daughter's education. My anger at these "pretenders" runs deep and I try not to think about it because my scottish blood comes to a boil!

We pulled her out of School this past September and my wife and I have home schooled her. We had to start at 4th grade math. It was pitiful, but miracles do happen. She has learned more in 9 months of home schooling than she did in all of junior highschool. She is happy, her self-confidence and self-esteem is at an all time high - she is really blooming into a wonderful young lady - no thanks to the public school system. Heck, they tried to stop us (the school system) telling us lies that socially she would have no friends, become a recluse and die and wither away - WRONG - she has more friends than she ever did and socially she has learned more than she could have possibly learned at school while being told she is stupid, she is never going to make it and being given assignments without the means to complete them.

Now Im not saying that all teachers are bad, power hungry and from the planet mars, but there is something wrong when the only thing that keeps a teachers job is years of service and not performance. Tenure should be stopped immediately and they should base a teachers employment on their performance. I don't understand how a wonderful teacher can lose her job to someone that is just so-so!

It is true that alot of money is being wasted on education, but people don't want to say that because it is unpopular - but we have generations graduating that can't even pick up a book and read!

So I totally agree with you about children being denied a bright future - by a public education system that is funded by us - yet we have no control over it.

Macfive,

I have to wish you all the best with the homeschooling. None of our children have ever been in the school system and we do not regret our choice at all. Two of our 4 children are actually school age (11 1/2 and 7 1/2). One thing that I can say for certain is that there are no Britney Spears CDs in our house. Nor are there any Backstreet Boys CDs, NSync, or most noticeable is the most welcome absence of any rap CDs. Coming from behind my daughters door are the sweet sounds of Natalie MacMaster, Solas, The Corries, Karan Casey, etc. Just a minute! I just realized where all of my CDs have gone!

And Paul I agree fully in fact would love for anyone to be able to show me where in the US Constitution the federal government has the power to do anything regarding education?????

Anyone care to answer that? The powers granted congress are all in Article 1 Section 8. unsure.gif

wink.gif Why S2, don't you just know that it HAS to pertain to Interstate Commerce, and of course only Congress has the authority to regulate Interstate Commerce. wink.gif

Prior to November of 2001 the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms only had authority to regulate explosives that were purchased, transported, etc. across State lines. Their explosives regulatory authority (versus firearms or alcohol) was fairly strictly based on Interstate Transport authority. At that time the ability of a citizen to purchase dynamite or other explosives was regulated only by State or local statute.

Following 9/11, Congress passed the "Safe Explosives Act" which changed things considerably. With no clear authority to do so, Congress ordered BATF to require that any explosive user possess a federal permit, even if it is only the farmer who needs two or three sticks of ditching powder to clear stumps.

In order to get that permit, s/he will need to submit a photograph and fingerprint card to BATF and be subject to a fairly thorough background check. Oh, speaking of checks, s/he will also have to send money of course.

The odds of someone with standing challenging the act and having the money necessary to take it to the Supreme Court are pretty unlikely, so it will no doubt stand.

The main point is, the bulk of the freedoms that have been usurped have been lost in the name of Interstate Commerce.

My cause is the accurate teaching of ALL history! The slants that have been produced over the years on what really happened astounds me... there is such a large gap between the truth and what our governments allow to be taught in schools that my head reels! I feel it is of the most importance that we know exactly what is in our history so we don't allow the same mistakes to be made over and over! The history of King George the 1st and King George the "W" are almost identical, but we still allow it because of the slant our governments have put on it!

Wake up folks and research your history yourselves or you never will know the truth!

S-2- that is exactly my point. The founding fathers dictated a constitution encompassing less federal governmental controls, and yet today there are more and more federal regulations being implemented than ever before. Mac5 bless you in your efforts to home-school, and I pray the the government will let you succeed...Mass. can be a very difficult State to home school in, as you are probably aware of with the actions being taken against that poor family down the road from you.

Well as much as I hate to say it I fear the time is coming near when the government will have to be reminded of their boundaries less we loose full control of our servant government forever.
