Shutting down Public Education would be a much better solution to the disease which is bred within those hallowed halls of disinformation and indoctrination. Society is breaking down because of generation after generation of being fed government by the bushel.

Education is a train wreck because half the kids are raised outside marriage and are not ready to learn when the show up at school. Schools have to spend a lot of time doing remedial parenting and discipline. These kids would rather tell the teacher to go to hell than learn something. So schools lower the bar to try to entertain kids instead of teaching them. We MUST reverse the trend of marriage absence in order to increase the numbers of children who go to school ready to learn, who go to college, and succeed in adulthood. The alternative is to run the nation like Chairman Mao, which Obama is trying to do as we speak.

It actually did what it was/is intended to do.

Missouri House Bill 402 is a major step forward reducing gun violence, domestic violence, and other forms of serious violence. For decades, federal and state policy attempting to impact these growing problems failed because the policies were pointed in the wrong direction.

Substance abuse in the family is the leading factor and primary driver of many kinds of gun-related crimes, domestic violence, and other offenses.

Substance abuse is tightly bound to domestic violence. Three-quarters of serious domestic violence is associated with substance abuse at the time of violence (Fig 3). This statistic does not include substance abusers who...
