Article by: Mary Fielding Summerhays

Preserving marriage is the great issue of our time. Redefining marriage to meet the objectives of proponents of same-gender marriage will remove the natural family–father, mother, and children–as the basic unit of society. It would, as a matter of law, deny the ideal that children need a mother and a father, and further, that children need mothering and fathering, the very factors that prepare them for their role in nurturing and sustaining…

Comments on Quote:"The philosophy of the classroom today will be the philosophy of government tomorrow."

From http://quotes.liberty-tree.ca these are some of the comments from readers:

Today this statement is sadly true, though happily true if our education system would concentrate on ethics, tolerance and cultural differences.

Arizona Traitors - Obrewercare Turncoats

One of the most offensive things about this week wasn't the fact that some R's are really D's and want more socialism, (we already knew that) it was that they voted to use the rules in a way that has never been done before. 



The suspend rules applies to emergency legislation that we couldn't have foreseen earlier in the session. If you need to submit a bill after the deadline, then vote to suspend the rules with the blessing of the leadership. However, this caucus voted to suspend…

The Hot Button

Question to all of my friends here on the Education Action Network:

 

How do you think would be the best way to really get through to parents?  In other words, what is one of the major hot buttons that we can press on to really wake them up?  Is it the fact that teachers are being brought up on charges for sexual misconduct?  Is it the fact that students are marginalized for having conservative values?  What is the one hot button topic that you think will really impact ALL…

Rampant Bigotry Responsible For DC Scandals

By Peter Berkowitz - June 11, 2013

Leaving aside the NSA snooping, which is apparently legal (if worrisome), it is easy to view the three scandals rocking the Obama administration -- Benghazi, IRS, and Department of Justice -- as disconnected instances of the abuse of power.

But…

Lincoln: “As a Nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide”

Posted on 11 June 2013 by "The Report Card

(Editor: In 1838, when Abraham Lincoln was but 28, he spoke before the Men’s Lyceum of Springfield Illinois. Lincoln was speaking about mob violence against blacks and the failure of government to protect the public against the mob. Yet his words seem to speak to us today about government overreach, disrespect for the rule of law, and the Constitution. His words are prescient as he warns against governments that fail to keep us safe, and…

Next Generation Beat: Are Anti-Gun Schools Teaching Paranoia to the Next Generation?

Next Generation 

Anti-gun fanatics have gone too far. A Nebraska school is punishing a deaf toddler because his name in sign language too closely resembles a gun. Guns are dangerous, but breakfast pastries are not. Neither is sign language. So why are kids being punished for playing with cap guns, using sign language and eating Pop Tarts? Has America lost a sense of what truly imperils its youth? Are we destroying the spirit of young boys? Find out as attorney Leo…

By Doug Hagmann June 8, 2013 Canada Free Press

Washington, D.C.—Something quite unexpected happened just hours ago, in the dark of night, during a two-day layover in Washington, DC. My son and I are scheduled to take part in a seminar outside of Raleigh, North Carolina this weekend, so we combined our travels to include a side-trip to DC for a business meeting we had previously arranged. It was during this layover that…

Monday; The AZ Capital; BE THERE!

Could Wes Be Right?

Arizona Freedom Alliance 6-7-13

My Colleague in the fight against Common Core, [ ], asked a question that got me to thinking more like the turn coat Republicans in our State Legislature and that is deviously. Why would they be resurrecting HB 2399 at this late date? Why, to fund Common Core and it's testing arm PARCC, of course. It was right there in front of my face and I did not even consider it. This is more devious than I had originally…
