0140_Why to vote no on 3A and 3B_2016-08-8 –“The Latest Big Education Fad, Social-Emotional Learning [SEL], Is As Bad As It Sounds” By Jane Robbins–Townhall.com

September 30, 2016/October 4, 2016 version

At this moment, in Jefferson County Colorado, the school district administration, superintendent, all 5 current school board members (who are all union-supported), the education unions, and “education experts”, are pushing for us to cough up more money in November.  They are mistaken to think that this will help or fix declining education.  3A and 3B ask us to finance their failing policies — and to expand them.

On this November’s ballot, VOTE NO ON 3A AND 3B.
— More money to the schools will only make worse
the serious problems we have in education.

Everyone who pays taxes is paying for SEL, which is a bad NEW WAY to “eliminate the emotional suffering” that students are mysteriously plagued with these days.  To find one of the biggest causes of the mysterious increase in emotional suffering among people in schools. click here.

WHAT SCHOOLS IN GENERAL ARE NOT TEACHING — WHY?

H.L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury in April 1924
that the aim of public education is not:

“…to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence… Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim… is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States… ”
[quotation 9 on the quotations page of this website]

Coordinated education

Worldwide, education has become a coordinated effort to control the minds and bodies of all people.  That has always been the goal under dictatorships (Marxism, Socialism, Communism, etc.)  The nature of dictatorships is to program the minds of adults and children (from birth to death) — in order to contain and manipulate them.

Schools, in general, are not teaching students

to be able: to read; to love reading; to write (in schools cursive is not in the national standards, and almost no printing is taught); to  be able to add, subtract, multiply and divide; to memorize the abc’s, math tables, names/dates . . .; to research outside the limited material that is  provided and recommended by school curriculum; to learn from history, including knowledge of of America’s founding; to learn to think independently and to communicate; to debate and defend positions logically; to learn about and discuss different faiths without condemnation of the faiths or condemnation of the people within the faiths, or those talking about the faiths (including Christianity and Judaism).

Schools in general are censoring what students can say about political philosophies (like Nazism, Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Republics, Democracies, Oligarchies, Monarchies) ….

WHY all the controlled censorship and carefully structured fabrication of false “history” that avoids basic U.S. History and avoids the U.S. Constitution and our Bill of Rights?  These were written to protect us from a tyrannical government.

Thought you could use a laugh (or at least a smile).

Honesty

Yup, some people can’t handle the truth!

My Favorite Animal

Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, “Fried chicken.”

She said I wasn’t funny, but she couldn’t have been right, because everyone else laughed.

My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal.  Continue reading

0136_Quotation from Marcus Tullius Cicero (42B.C) — a nation cannot survive treason from within_Trevor Loudon’s DVD “Enemies Within” — order — see trailer — his calendar

Donna Jack
September 20, 2016

We are living in such treacherous times.

It takes diligent study to minimize being a total pawn.

Truth-seeking is a necessary never-ending job.

A friend recently forwarded this quotation to me:

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero (42B.C)

A BREATH OF FRESH AIR IN MY FAMILY

I have been enjoying a lovely time with one of our three sons, his wife, and their three children.  It makes me so happy to know they are decent, God-loving, kind, courteous, considerate, productive, giving, responsible citizens.  They put careful thought into their decisions and actions – and are a blessing to everyone they come in contact with.  The same can be said of another one of our sons, his wife and children – and also of our third son.

What a contrast they are to our society that is generally falling apart at the seams.

This destruction of our country was carefully orchestrated:  Agenda and Agenda 2
[Blog Posts about Curtis Bowers and his documentaries Agenda and Agenda 2
Blogs 0110, 0111, 0114, 0115 and 0122.]

 What makes all this “falling apart at the seams” so terribly sad is that the demise of our country has been carefully planned and implemented.  Look at the blogs linked above – to find some discussion about the documentaries, find a link to a trailer, and learn how to purchase the documentaries Agenda and Agenda 2These DVD documentaries made by Curtis Bowers, spell out, in clear detail, the history of a real agenda to destroy America.


A SURPRISE APPEARED AFTER DINNER

Several weeks ago, as my husband and I were leaving the Wendy’s parking lot in our neighborhood, we saw a sign posted at the end of the driveway.  My husband stopped the car so I could get out to read it and take pictures.  There it was – a public notice of an up-coming hearing to discuss a possible 40+ unit apartment building to be built next to Wendy’s.  The plan was to build it where there was a tennis court area covered by a big white “bubble” – right in the center of a middle-class neighborhood.

Several days later some friends attended the meeting that was posted on that sign, and reported that the apartment building was going to be government-subsidized housing.  It was to provide for the poor people who could not afford to drive up from the city to work in our small unincorporated town.  They would be brought to live in our neighborhood, take jobs from local people, and attend our schools . . .

0134_Bernnie Blesses Amendment 69 (Colorado Single-Payer Healthcare)–CO Treasurer Walker Stapleton email against it_Stapleton, Ritter and Hickenlooper agree it would be disastrous_link to resources

Donna Jack
September 11, 2016

Our Colorado State Treasurer, Walker Stapleton, has sent out an excellent letter and link that can be shared.  It is simple to read, and shows that the fight against Single-payer healthcare is something that goes beyond any party lines.  It is one more “Constitutional Amendment” that will devastate our budget, and funnel tax money away from necessary services to maintain the financial and physical health of people in Colorado.

Note:  children in schools will be told that Amendment 69 is a good things.  In general, federal/national curriculum teaches students to be socialists/collectivists.

See the end of this blog for links to other Blogs on this site about Amendment 69, or type in “Amendment 69” next to the spyglass at the top of this blog, and press “enter.”

Colorado common sense has always served our great state well, and a bipartisan lineup of Democrats and Republicans are standing on the side of common sense this fall and against the single-payer health care initiative known as Amendment 69. Continue reading

0133_My heart grieves at our loss of Phyllis Schlafly_she always stood up strong for God, family and our country_Audio and Visual Links_ YouTubes _ by Donna Jack

Dear Friends,

Yesterday one of my all-time heroes Phyllis Schlafly, left us, and is now in heaven.  She has been a great inspiration to me almost all my adult life.

Many years ago I used to listen to her radio broadcasts, and just learned today that she has been speaking regularly on the radio ever since 1983 – and was still broadcasting up until she died.

In 1972 the “Equal Rights Amendment” (ERA) was passed in both houses of Congress, and was then sent to the states for ratification.  The deadline for ratification was March 22, 1979.  Phyllis mobilized conservative women and men across the country, showing them how the ERA would actually hurt housewives and families.  I attended a debate at Denver University during that time.  She was extraordinary in the debate, as she made her case against “the Equal Rights Amendment.”  Thanks to her brilliant unceasing efforts, combined with the efforts of others standing up across the country, that destructive amendment was stopped.  Typically, the Left didn’t quit — and they have continued their destructive agenda.

Dear – – – ,

Nobody told me that monsters were real.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing hiding in the closet looking to eat children. . .

What could be such a monstrous threat to Colorado? Amendment 69, also called ColoradoCare.

ColoradoCare is a ballot initiative to implement mandatory single-payer healthcare – at a cost of OVER $38 BILLION.

Blog 0128_Dr. Jill Vecchio explaining in online video why to Vote NO on Amendment 69 — It will be on this November’s ballot.

Here is a link to the entire 12-page proposed Amendment 69 Initiative measure.  Become familiar with this document.  Check it against any explanation booklet you see.

Senator Kevin Lundberg put together an excellent analysis of Amendment 69, in the form of a tri-fold, that you can print out.

It is important that we work to keep Colorado from having Single-Payer Health Care.   we would be the first state to implement it – having one federally controlled healthcare plan across the country is the goal.  This would give the federal government the control to make all of our healthcare decisions for us — disastrous and dangerous.

Below is linked Jill Vecchio’s recent YouTube on the 2016 Amendment 69 produced by Healthcare Options that Work:

Also look at previous Blogs addressing Amendment 69, which is among many horrible initiatives and amendments that will be on your ballot in a few weeks.   Click on the spyglass at the top of this blog, type in “Amendment 69”  and press “enter.”  Or you can go to the bottom of this blog for a listing of resources on Amendment 69.
