Feds Will Now Be Able To Track Your Child’s Personal Information

The Obama administration’s federal takeover of the public schools is finally beginning to resonate across this country. The New York Post article dated 12.27.11 and entitled “How the Feds Are Tracking Your Kid” (posted at the bottom of this page) should make every parent in America furious. “As of Jan. 3, 2012, interstate and intergovernmental access to your child’s personal information will be practically unlimited. The federal government will have a de facto nationwide database of supposedly confidential student information.”

The national database is a part of the Common Core Standards (and Race to the Top). The Common Core Standards initiative includes national standards, national assessments, national curriculum, teachers’ salaries tied to students’ test scores, teachers teaching to the test each and every day, national indoctrination of public school children, and a national database of intrusive information on all public school students and teachers.

America: The Living Portrait of Dorian Gray

The song “God Bless the USA” is often still sung at commemorative events surrounding national days of remembrance like the Fourth of July or Veterans Day. But, like the “Star-Spangled Banner,” the true meaning behind the vaunted words of this American doxology has been lost. More importantly, the claims made in Lee Greenwood’s timeless anthem are no longer accurate.

Public religious expression has been squelched in the last century, violating “free exercise” of faith in the deepest sense, and ending America’s status as a nation that unreservedly recognizes freedom of religion.

Priceless civil liberties like “privacy” have been abolished via anti-terrorism measures that neither sought amendment nor claimed constitutional legitimacy.

Ron Paul and Obama – Dangerous Men

Ben Barrack has posted a very incriminating piece on Ron Paul:

Ron Paul Letter from 1993 Makes 9/11 Truthers Look Perfectly Sane

The type of phrasing in the letters signed by Ron Paul in 1993 is the very same type of language that he spews right now. It will be very hard for him to convince the public that he did not make such statements as, “Martin Luther King, Jr. is a world-class philanderer.”

Ron Paul has always been unstable. I have followed him for years. He has never been considered by his fellow Congressmen as a leader because of his far-out Libertarian views. For those people who think Ron Paul would make a good leader for our country, let’s take a look at what kind of a leader he has been in Congress.

What Does Christmas Mean To You?

As we approach Christmas day, a reminder that we have added another year to life, it is good to ponder the meaning of Christmas for each of us. As we review Christmases past, gatherings with friends and family, pondering those who have been born, and those who have left us since we last celebrated Christmas gives pause to ignore the glitter and marketing that occurs at this time of year, and we are challenged to consider the meaning of Christmas to each of us, individually.

Of course, we would have no Christmas at all without Christ. He is left out of so many of contemporary Christmas traditions, but His coming into our world in the form of a child to live, teach, and die so that each of us could have a relationship with God still forms the very heart of Christmas.

The Hitman Cometh

An old adage reads, “If it quacks like a duck, then it’s probably a duck.” The push by the Obama Administration to progressively strip Americans of basic liberties in the pursuit of political objectives has now taken on more draconian overtones, and no one seems to have noticed. While the media quibbles over Romney versus Gingrich, the Occupy movement, and other diversions, President Obama continues to undermine law and order, dismantling the US Constitution piece by piece. When public officials seek to limit freedom, it can be concluded that these officials want to rule instead of govern. Cloaking seizures of power in clever misnomers does not validate the abuse of public office. What else can we conclude when Obama claims the illegal power to assassinate citizens at his whim?
