Joe gets up at 6:00am to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot
full of good clean drinking water because some liberal fought for
minimum water quality standards.
He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His
medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure
their safety and work as advertised.
All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employers
medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their
employers for paid medical insurance, now Joe gets it too. He prepares
his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs this day. Joe's bacon is safe to
eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing
industry.
Joe takes his morning shower reaching for his shampoo; His bottle is
properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents
because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting
on his body and how much it contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and
takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some tree-
hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our
air.
He walks to the subway station for his government subsidized ride to
work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation
fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public
transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a
contributor.
Joe begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay,
medicals benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some
liberal union members fought and died for these working standards.
Joe's employer pays these standards because Joe's employer doesn't
want his employees to call the union.
If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he'll get a worker
compensation or unemployment check because some liberal didn't think
he should loose his home because of his temporary misfortune.
It's noon time, Joe needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some
bills. Joe's deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some
liberal wanted to protect Joe's money from unscrupulous bankers who
ruined the banking system before the depression.
Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten Mortgage and his below
market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that
Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and
earned more money over his lifetime.
Joe is home from work, he plans to visit his father this evening at
his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to
dad's; his car is among the safest in the world because some liberal
fought for car safety standards.
He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live
in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration because bankers
didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electric until
some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and
demanded rural electrification.(Those rural Republicans would still
be sitting in the dark)
He is happy to see his dad who is now retired. His dad lives on Social
Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could
take care of himself so Joe wouldn't have to. After his visit with dad
he gets back in his car for the ride home.
He turns on a radio talk show, the host keeps saying that liberals
are bad and conservatives are good (He doesn't tell Joe that his
beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit
Joe enjoys throughout his day). Joe agrees, "We don't need those big
government liberals ruining our lives; after all, I'm a self-made man
who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I
have."

Woman shot in back of head
Linda , 29 , a resident of San Diego California, was visiting her in-laws and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries.
Later, her husband noticed her sitting in her car in the driveway with the windows rolled up and with her eyes closed, with both hands behind the back of her head. He became concerned and walked over to the car. He noticed that Linda's eyes were now open and she looked very strange. He asked her if she was okay, and Linda replied that she had been shot in the back of the head and had been holding her brains in for over an hour.
The husband called the paramedics, who broke into the car because the doors were locked and Linda refused to remove her hands from her head. When they finally got in, they found that Linda had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head. A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in the back of her head. When she reached back to find out what it was, she felt the dough and thought it was her brains. She initially passed out but quickly recovered.

I see what you're talking about now Brickshy, I think he can probably come up with a thousand dollars. But I see this as further proving just what a hypocrites you and your crowd are more than him.

Now I got word on good authority from a bible thumping preacher. That the earth is less than 5000 years old. So ya gotta be wrong! Just kidding. Your correct. even human civilizations have waxed & waned over the millenia. the alantians where very advanced just like the achient egyptians. The planet earth has been seeded with genetically engineered life forms many tmes in the past. Ancient aliens are the responsible gods. Ever since the earthling humans unraveled the DNA its become more apparent. We now have the technology to put a pig gene in a cotton plant, The boll weevil dont eat pork so he wont bother a cotton plant with a pig gene. we could now genetically engineer a life form that could live on the moon. We could be following in the footsteps of our ancestors. or genetically engineering the life form that will replace humans.

<quoted text> Our youngest child was failing in JR high. They said he was ADD and wanted us to give him ridilin. We got mad and took him out and home schooled . Turned out he had Dexlexia and couldnt hardly read. Se we started with dick and jane books and he quickly progressed. He read everything he could find that interested him. He had failed several grades in public school. After a two years of home schooling he tested high enough for the 11th grade. then he wanted to go back to public school he was 17 then. so he drove his car to school. he liked sports and excelled in school he was on the honor roll. when he turned 18 they wouldnt let him be on the sports teams. so he dropped out and took the GED test and passed it, he now runs his own buisness and does very well. Home schooling is very easy these days with the internet. Your assesment that Home schooling retards the child because of lack of social interaction is not true. my son still went to school events like ball games and hung out with the other kids in the neighborhood. got into trouble and squabbles and had fun swimming riding horses ect. everything public school kids did. some folks are introverted wierdos others are not. just the same as some are gay & lesbian. Its in the DNA . DNA has more to do with who & what you are than social environment.Shure it seems that more home schooled children are different and it may be true, Its the difference that makes them nonconforming and not sheeple. That upsets the public school,s liberal brainwashing agends. If a child refuses to fit in their plan. they want to alter his personality by giving drugs. We need caracters & noncormists in society. their the ones who think and do thinks differently and invent and discover and cause mankind to progress. And their in good company. Leaornado Divinci, Benjarmin Franklin, Nickoli Telsa, Eienstien, Just to mame a few off the wall noncomforming caracters.
Good for you for doing the right thing for your child. Ever wonder why so many kids are diagnosed with ADD? Could it be because they really aren't interested in most of the crap that's pushed down their throat in the classroom? I have a short attention span if I'm not interested in something too.

The plain and sad truth is kids aren't being taught alot of things that they should be taught in school. Real life things. Things that they can learn in homeschooling.

The nature center near me has some really good programs for kids. Homeschooled kids can get outdoors and get a one on one education with a naturalist on so many different outdoor-related things. I find most kids and even adults today don't know much in this area. It's sad because everything we have, and our very survival, comes from nature.

I have met families on the road during my travels and come to find out the kids were being homeschooled. Instead of sitting in a classroom trying to be just as pretty, well-dressed and as popular as Suzy, the kids were seeing the country, meeting different people and camping during the week. They were learning how to fish, cook over a grill, build a fire, set up camp, studying butterflies and learning different medicinal uses of various plant species. At night they learn planets and constellations.

They got to live history firsthand by visiting various places where famous battles were fought. They got to actually see the barracks were the soldiers slept. Some of them are still intact with all the furniture and other things in them that they had back then. They even toured the famous Lewis and Clark trail. This has so much more meaning and interest than a textbook.

Math, spelling and other lessons were learned at their leisure. They could run, ride bicycles and play during the day, and study at night or on weekends if they wanted to. They were very polite kids, well adjusted and happy.

back in the spring I took my grandchildren to a location on the 5th principal meridian. I explaned to them how Thomas Jefferson had a group of surveyors survey out the louisanna purchase. That one group led by a mister brown left the starting point near where the white river enters the mississippi and went west establising the base line. And another group headed by a mr white went north laying out the fith principal meridian. I showed them a Quarried tapered limestone rock that was buried on the 5th principal meridian marking a section corner that was buried by those men Jefferson commisioned. I explaned that they buried a rock every mile. and every section of land was a square mile containing 640 acred more or less. and ever township contained 36 sections. and originally every 16th section was set aside for the school. the income fron that 640 acres to support the school. and the location assured no student would be farther than 6 miles from school. I showed them topo maps showing the ssection we where at and the township corners. I explaned that on the east of the meridian it was range one east and on the west its range one west. I was able to answer most of their questions. Now you will never get that kind of hands on history lesson in public school.

That's exactly my point. An interesting history lesson they can actually relate to because they are there at the location. And learning to read a topo map at the same time.
