"If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."
                                             -- George Washington

"If we stuck to the Constitution as written, we would have: no federal meddling in our schools; no Federal Reserve; no U.S. membership in the UN; no gun control; and no foreign aid.

We would have no welfare for big corporations, or the "poor"; no American troops in 100 foreign countries; no NAFTA, GATT, or "fast-track"; no arrogant federal judges usurping states rights; no attacks on private property; no income tax. We could get rid of most of the cabinet departments, most of the agencies, and most of the budget."

Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom by Dr. Ron Paul

"Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens' lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons."
                                             -- Congressman Ron Paul

End the Fed by Dr. Ron Paul

"The government is best which governs least."
                                                       -- Thomas Jefferson

During the 1998-99 school year, nearly 6,000 S.C. students were home-schooled. It jumped to about 12,600 in 2003-04, according to Carper.

About 13 million U.S. children attend schools other than their assigned public schools - a 45 percent increase since 1993, according to U.S. Department of Education data. Most of that growth is attributed to students attending public schools other than their assigned one.

Mirror editor Piers Morgan is sacked as the newspaper concedes photos of soldiers abusing an Iraqi were fake.

In a statement the Mirror said it had fallen victim to a "calculated and malicious hoax" and that it would be "inappropriate" for Morgan to continue. The Queen's Lancashire Regiment (QLR) said the Mirror had endangered British troops by running the pictures. Roger Goodman, of the QLR, said the regiment now felt "vindicated". Mr Goodman added: "It is just a great pity it has taken so long... and that so much damage has been done in the meantime."

The issue of whether someone should vote for the "lesser of two evils" this November has become very contentious in recent months with friends and relatives clashing to the point of creating hard feelings.

Sadly, most Americans don't really recognize that they are being deliberately herded into this direction to keep them in line and "faithful" to either the Democrat or Republican parties. Sun-Tzu is considered one of the greatest military tacticians of all time. I have learned much from studying his strategies as well as Francis Marion aka The Swamp Fox. The herding technique is one of the most effective methods of manipulating those to be conquered into the right direction. I use a bull and cape metaphor on my web site to illustrate this, but basically, this is how it works...

At first glance, the Magnor family look like typical home schoolers. The five younger kids in the family head to the basement or the computer by the kitchen once breakfast is over. Patrick struggles through an earth science lesson as Annie reads "A Wrinkl

Technically, however, the four children are enrolled in the Northern Ozaukee School District. They're taught by certified teachers and the district gets state funds to support their education.

A Christian family has sued a Pennsylvania school district, claiming the state's home education law violates their religious convictions.

Pennsylvania's home-schooling regulations are rigorous, requiring meticulous record-keeping and submission of notarized paperwork on the home schoolers' intended curriculum, a criminal background stipulation, each child's medical information, ongoing progress logs, and the end-of-year progress reports, which must be signed by a third party.

Conservative causes permeate the curricula of some homeschoolers. Is it education or indoctrination?

At age 7, Jared Gamble's parents took him to a rally to protest the expansion of a greyhound racetrack in Lincoln, R.I., into a gambling casino 10 minutes from their home. But the Gambles' participation in the protest that day wasn't just about their moral and civic opposition to the casino. As a homeschool family, they also considered the rally an academic field trip designed to teach their son about democracy in action.

A white teenager who moved from South Africa to America six years ago was suspended from school after nominating himself for a "Distinguished African-American Student of the Year" prize.

Trevor Richards, 16, was accused of "showing disrespect" to black pupils at Westside High School in Omaha, Nebraska. It is thought he is the only pupil to have lived in Africa. He and two friends put up campaign posters showing him making a thumbs-up sign and all three were suspended. "The posters were intended to be satire on the term 'African-American'," said one of his campaign managers, Scott Rambo. The phrase is the current politically correct label for black Americans.

But we are the freest nation in the entire world! Yes, but that's only for the immediate moment!

And it is only because of the cultural constraints placed upon a soon to be totally out-of-control bureaucracy poised for just the right moment!All the necessary 'laws' are now in place! Never mind that they are all completely unconstitutional! And never mind as well that the finishing touches of our unconstitutional "laws" have been finalized and put in place by a "limited government" Republican administration! America is now "legally" a police state!

Sens. Hillary Clinton and John Warner are sponsoring legislation that would enact a national seat belt law, requiring states to pass laws mandating the usage of seat belts or obtaining a 90 percent use rate among citizens.

These days, many choose to rely on government. Capitalizing on that, the Big Daddy government will happily supply the needs, creating a dependent nation. But if the government is daddy and we're the children, as I've said before, there is definitely some child abuse going on - a new era has emerged, causing a few problems.

A north-central Phoenix school is the first in the nation to install cameras designed to detect the faces of sex offenders or missing children and instantly alert police.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office used a grant to install equipment in the entrance and attendance office at Royal Palm Middle School, 8520 N. 19th Ave. The cameras are expected to be operating next week. Rebecca Dornbusch, deputy director of the International Biometric Industry Association in Washington D.C., had never heard of biometric face scanning being used on K-12 campuses. Biometric handprints are being used by a few day care centers to insure the right adults are picking up kids after school, she said.
