PI2013 #541 – It Doesn’t Add Up


“The State did not own men so entirely, even when it could send them to the stake, as it sometimes does now where it can send them to the elementary school.”  ~   G.K. Chesterton

Liberty Lovers, Every American Taxpayer Now “Owes” “The (federal) State” $148,085, every citizen $53,424.

Education’ Has A Singular purpose – to control behavior.  Political candidates, public officials, elitists — anyone who seeks to control (or predict) people’s behavior knows this.  Few, if any, legislators or ‘government’ (“State”) chief executives or legislators have higher priorities than ‘education’ control.

“Every generation of school-age children has imprinted upon it a politically correct ideology concerning America’s past and the sanctity of the role of the state in society.” ~  Richard Eberling

News Media Are Airing critiques of an ‘educational’ initiative called “Common Core,” an initiative aimed at establishing learning goals for students through grade twelve.  One critique includes a classroom setting clip where competency evaluation would give credit to students concluding 4 x 3 = 11, provided students could rationalize their answers.

Glenn Beck’s Show, Today, delivered a scathing assessment of Common Core, saying parents would be unable to help students because Common Core concepts are not consistent with typical learning processes or outcomes.

“Education does not mean teaching people to know what they do not know; it means teaching them to behave as they do not behave.” ~  John Ruskin

Education” Enables People To control their behavior, be competent, successful, self-reliant.  “We, the American People” should not allow instructional methods or goals where informational inaccuracy is acceptable.

People Intending To Live In Liberty do not allow legislators – or other public officials within These United States of America, to prohibit or restrict private ownership of firearms and ammunition from any citizen of good repute and responsible standing. They hold fast their ability to ward off would-be tyranny.

Let Freedom Ring


It’s your property, not “State” property.
