State Grown Kids Always Fail

This is one of the best columns on this subject I have read. I currently work in an elementary school and totally agree that government needs to get out of the job of raising children. Our current decline began with the breakdown of the family and that was such a success that now they are working on breaking down Christian values and religion. The ethnic makeup of my school is very diverse, but I can tell you that those students who have parental and family support and nurturing and who have strong Christian values bloom and those who don't just wither on the vine.
Jay Leno said it the best when he said they won't be called illegal immigrants, they will be called undocumented democrats
Unfortunately, many of these politicians are just like the other leeches who survive off those of us who work everyday trying to make a living. The "something for nothing" is just too good to be true but they are willing to take what they can get now and to hell with the future.
All parents know that the best way to deal with temper tantrums is not to cave in the the childish behavior. It is time for the people of this country to be the "adults in the room" and shut down this cry baby!!!!! This is the time for us to look at everyone in Washington, Democrats and Republicans, and decide who is actually representing the people of this country and not their own personal agendas. Since we don't have term limits for Congress, only WE THE PEOPLE can limit the terms of those who don't represent us. We need to clean house in 2014,
I also saw Ms. Maxwell on Hannity and agree that that is one of the stupidest statements I have ever heard. REALLY!!!! She said several times that MOST women are raped by "someone" they know. If that is the case, then THOSE women need to pick their acquaintances more carefully. Men who as boys are taught to respect women will not grow up to be men who rape women. Women who as girls are taught to demand respect will not grow up to be raped by "someone they know". For those others who didn't learn that lesson, they may need a refresher course from Smith and Wesson.

What's Next for Ben Carson?

The last line of your post says it all "Government school administrators want kids to worship government, not God". Worshipping government and looking to government to solve your problems is what is leading our country into a downward spiral. People need to look to God for guidance in their lives, as Dr. Carson does, and they will find their way through all of lifes hardships and struggles. Our society has morally declined over the past 50 years and we (people of faith) must work together to restore this nation to what made it great.
I loved Ben Carson's speech and hope that he continues to give his common sense thoughts on our country's current situation. Political excommunication- from the liberals and their loyal media followers-who cares. He can come on over to our side. We are always looking for informed people, those able to solve problems and those who look to God and not the government to lead them through life.

Flat Tax or Fair Tax?

Another advantage of the sales tax is that we could capture taxes on purchases by people who make their money illegally and don't currently pay income taxes but certainly spend their money.
What soccer moms and everyone else should be afraid of are the children, adolescents and twenty somethings who have been "raised" with psychotropic drugs instead of discipline and being nurtured and taught how to deal with lifes dissapointments and struggles (what used to be known as parenting). I work in an elementary school and am floored by the number of children who are medicated. While some of them may have a valid diagnosis, but many of them are just medicated because it is just easier. Parenting is not for sissies.

The 2 Cent Budget Fix

FedUp2012 Wrote: Jan 23, 2013 7:21 AM
How about the government cutting spending by 2 cents on every dollar? We the people are still waiting for some spending reductions from the last debt ceiling debate. It reminds me of Wimpy on the old Popeye show, I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a Hamburger today.
Still an improvement over four more years o OBAMA. Too many "Republican" stayed home to make a statement on Romney. Sometimes cutting off your nose to spite your face is not the smartest move.
