Important words to teach and learn

“I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. ”  Thomas Jefferson

What a far better Republic we’d have now, had our children been taught the words and beliefs of our founding fathers.  They were smart, knowledgable, and determined to write a constitution which would ensure our freedom “from oppressive” government…  WE THE PEOPLE have let them down.  It’s time to raise them back UP!

have we gone too far?

 The following is a report from the Associated Press:

A Michigan boy reportedly has been suspended from school for curling his hand into the shape of a gun and pointing it at another student.

Erin Jammer, said her son, Mason, was just playing around when he made the gesture Wednesday, the Grand Rapids Press reported.

But officials at Jefferson Elementary School said the behavior made other students uncomfortable, and they suspended Mason for the remainder of the week, the paper reported.

School officials also told the paper that Mason had been warned repeatedly against pretending to aim his hand at students but continued the behavior over several months.

Jammer told the paper her son isn’t violent and doesn’t have toy guns at home. She suggested a less harsh punishment, like taking Mason’s recess away, might be more effective in teaching him not to make a gun with his hand.

“He’s only six and he doesn’t understand any of this,” she said.

Okay folks, does it seem like we’re over-regulating EVERYTHING?  A child playing “cops & robbers” or (OMG) “cowboys and indians” is now a threat?  Really?

spying on our kids? what’s next?

FOX news is reporting on the Allegations of Spying by PA School System.  Where is our so-called “Safe” School Czar now?  Could it be he is reviewing the 42 admitted instances?  Considering Kevin Jennings outspoken opinions concerning homosexual “rights” within our school systems – It’s quite likely.

Most teens keep their lap top computers in their bedrooms.  Our teenagers have a right to privacy – in their homes and in their bedrooms.  So, what exactly were these teachers (and others) watching?  Could this be a path to governmental child-porn? 

Regardless, our school systems are NOT funded to spy on our kids, our families or our homes.  This is a blatant invasion of privacy and should be treated accordingly.
