Teachers in my school district in Colorado (Jefferson) and also in Douglas County schools, are striking and lobbying at the state Capitol. They claim Colorado ranks 46th in teacher pay – not true. The NEA (National Education Association) lied. Colorado teachers are 30th or 31st — closer to the middle of the pack.
Aren’t we paying them to teach in school — not strike to hold tax payers hostage? Public school employees should never strike. They should educate our children. At least that is what we would ideally want.
Today Mandy Connell posted some comments on her blog about this subject.

JEFFERSON COUNTY AND DOUGLAS COUNTY SCHOOLS ARE SHUT DOWN TODAY So the people who claim to care more than ANYONE about our CHIIIILLLLLDREN can throw a collective hissy at the Capitol today. The Wear Red for Ed movement even has nifty shirts for teachers to wear. Look at the logo I just grabbed from the CEA website:

At the beginning of the cartoon are these words:
“This is one of a series of films produced by the Extension Department of Harding College to create a deeper understanding of what has made America the finest place in the world to live.”
This cartoon and others are made fun of and cut down, but the fact remains it was not “propaganda” in the sense of telling lies. It was getting a message out in response to the tearing down of America that was going on — a tearing down that continues to this day.
Cartoon predicts the future more than 60 years ago. This is amazing insight!

I am including this video, not as an endorsement for the Libertarian party (I believe we need to stick within our 2-party system in order to get anything good done.
President Trump is a perfect example. He is not a political party person, but an American. He ran on principles closer to the Republican party. But notice how he is viciously attacked both by Democrats, and by much of the Republican party. He doesn’t waiver!
I am including the video below for it’s powerful anti-communist, anti-socialist, anti-tyranny message. Let me make it clear, this is NOT an endorsement of the Libertarian party.
The following YouTube talks of 100 years of Communism. It is not a pretty picture.
My friend Lily Tang Williams speaks in this video. When she was a student, she escaped from China to come to this country. You can watch her as she speaks about China, her love for the U.S.A., and her determination to stand up for our freedom here.

SHOCKING Sept. 2017 INTERVIEW WITH 2 SECURITY CONTRACTORS
WHO WERE AWARE OF CONDITIONS BEFORE BENGHAZI ATTACK
Watch a breaking-news interview with two security contractors who were threatened by a high official in Hillary Clinton’s State Department — to remain silent after the terrorist attack on our U.S. Embassy in Benghazi.
These men have come forward, in the hope that something may be done under this presidency, to correct the errors that led to the deaths and destruction In Benghazi, just before the 2012 presidential election.
Watch the Tucker Carlson interview here:
Contractors: We were pressured to keep quiet on Benghazi

Two years, one month, and one week ago, on July 28, 2015, I posted my first blog on this website.
A listing of all the posts can be found in the Table of Contents — each entry in the Table of Contents has a link to the corresponding blog post.
The Home Page shows what is wrong with education —
and the most critical thing to understand
in order to reverse the decline in education today – and to save our nation.
How do we fix the rapid decline in the education of too many people who do not graduate, and too many who do graduate from High Schools, Colleges and Universities?
It is not the condition of the buildings and other facilities — it is not the talent and good intentions and dedication of highly trained and competent teachers, administrators, counselors, teacher librarians, and all the support staff — it is not the freedom to choose the school a child attends (especially if all schools have Type #2 education) — it is not the amount of interest of the parents, or of the students — it is not computerizing all education and gathering more and more data on children, families, teachers, etc. — it is not simply emphasis on certain subjects like sports, music, art, science, technology, mathematics, language arts, reading, writing — it is not focus on becoming a global citizen — it is not in forcing all students to accept everything that students do and believe (unless they are politically incorrect). Standardizing all attitudes, values, beliefs and behaviors is not the answer, either — and training children to want to change their sexual identity will not improve education standards.
The thing that really matters is THE TYPE OF EDUCATION BEING TAUGHT IN THE CURRICULUM — THE CONTENT. Type #2 education is taking over our country — to the detriment of everyone. We need a shift back to Type #1.

Introduction to “North Korean Refugee Tells Her Story.”
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
Said by Ronald Reagan – quotations by Ronald Reagan
40th president of US (1911 – 2004)
We must do our best to stand up for freedom, and protect our children from the “one world” “godless” teachings that are being infused into the minds of students in almost all public schools, and in many private schools — including Christian schools and other religious schools. It begins in nurseries, pre-schools and day-cares – and continues in all forms of public (and even private) education – even at Christian universities and seminaries. The popular media in our country continues the narrative of one world without God.
“Without God, all things are permitted.”―
Eliminate recognition of the existence and intervention of God, and you have totalitarian states.
A friend of mine who escaped Communist China tells a similar story as the young lady from North Korea — this similar story exists across the world — repeated accounts of the fear, brain-washing, and brutality like this young Korean witnessed and experienced as she grew up under Communism in China.
North Korean Refugee Tells Her Story.
Listen to this dear young lady who is a refugee from North Korea. Her account is heartbreaking…and a foreboding warning to us. Centralized control leads to uncontrolled abuses.

The following material is from Trevor Loudon’s website:
“With President Trump executing missile strikes in Syria and radical Islamic terrorism being as big a threat as it ever has been, we need to understand how these oppressive regimes and extremist ideologies got started and are empowered. Working with Dangerous Documentaries, director Judd Saul and conservative commentator Trevor Loudon have compiled a team of researchers who have uncovered the history of the Soviet Union’s meddling in Middle Eastern politics, creating a new enemy for the United States, and have learned that Russia’s continuing alliance with Islamists is forwarding a radical domestic threat in America today.
“Soviet Islam” is the second episode in the five-part “America Under Siege” documentary web-series releasing over the course of 2017. Each episode profiles the influence of radical Marxists on various segments of American society. Continue reading

Students in public school are not taught the truth about Communism.
Quotes from this video:
“Until the left, and all the institutions influenced by the left, acknowledge how evil communism has been, we will continue to live in a morally confused world.
“In the meantime, all good people owe it to the victims of communism to learn what happened to them. Even worse than being murdered or enslaved is a world that doesn’t even know that you were.”
Dennis Prager presents this 5 minute 19 second (5:19) video. (posted May 1, 2017). You can link to the facts mentioned in the video – and at his site either view the transcript of the video — or you can download the transcript.
