Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. On Religious Freedom

January 21, 2019 // 0 Comments

Today we commemorate the life and work of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Many Progressives uphold Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., as an example of Progressive ideology.  Yet, how many Progressives have taken the time to actually read what Dr. King had to say about so many ideas he held in common with the Founding Fathers?  Progressives have spent the past century undermining many ideas and values upheld by both Dr. King [Read More ... ]

Smells like Common Core

August 6, 2016 // 0 Comments

America’s Founding Fathers on one hand, and Common Core’s supporters on the other, have two very different views of education’s purpose.  Common Core’s goal is to produce students who are “college and career ready.”  America’s Founding Fathers, in contrast, stated (in the Northwest Ordinance of 1787) that,  “Religion, morality and knowledge being necessary to good government and the [Read More ... ]

Speak Up!

July 28, 2016 // 0 Comments

Have you ever considered the number of historical accounts in God’s Word detailing the ways in which God’s people influenced secular governance?  Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, Esther, Samuel, Nathaniel, John the Baptist, Paul, Silas, Peter, the list literally goes on and on. For those of us in America who really do still live in a country governed of, by, and for the people:  we can [Read More ... ]

Time for Local Control of Education

January 7, 2016 // 2 Comments

Tell any American that we should have a National Religion and watch the sparks fly.  Americans have an instinctive – and healthy – aversion to the notion that there should ever be a national religion.  It has been drilled into our heads from an early age that the U.S. Constitution established healthy boundaries and limits for the federal government regarding religion.  Boundaries and limits are a necessary component to [Read More ... ]

A Republic – Without Morality?

September 17, 2015 // 0 Comments

It is amazing how many Americans expect government leaders to be moral – how sickened Americans are when they are lied to by politicians – and yet how NAIVE so many Americans are to expect moral leaders when so many Americans reject the very recipe necessary to achieve moral governance in a Republic.  The Founding Fathers were explicit about the fact that the only way to maintain a free Republic was to maintain virtue and [Read More ... ]

A Republic – Can We Keep It?

September 15, 2015 // 0 Comments

September 17 is Constitution Day, and as required by federal law, all public school teachers – regardless of the subject they are trained to teach – must teach their students about the U.S. Constitution. I teach American History and Civics.  I spend a lot of time talking with my students about the Constitution, but my Constitution Day assignment might appear very basic (and not very different from last year’s [Read More ... ]

Profiting from Dehumanization

August 22, 2015 // 0 Comments

In the 1857 Supreme Court case – Dred Scott v. Sanford – the majority ruled that black people are, “… so far inferior, that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect.”  With those words the racist Chief Justice, Roger B. Taney, attempted to legally dehumanize all black people in the U.S., and thereby, asserted that they had no constitutionally-protected legal rights.  Similarly, in the [Read More ... ]

Why Associate with MEA-NEA?

March 5, 2015 // 0 Comments

Many teachers continue paying dues to Michigan Education Association (MEA) whose leadership has earned a reputation for giving itself hefty raises, not to mention the fact that MEA-NEA’s leadership is clearly a promoter of a Progressive Left agenda.  In the past, Phyllis Schlafly has documented the Progressive Left agenda of the NEA, but the NEA’s own annual resolutions speak volumes in and of themselves.  MEA’s [Read More ... ]

Keep Calling – Urge Your Representative to VOTE NO on HR 5 and Urge Your Senator to VOTE NO on S 227

March 2, 2015 // 0 Comments

Does it matter that testing agencies want to collect “data from your child? Last week I wrote about some of the problems with H.R. 5, or the so-called “Student Success Act.”  Although from what I have read, some of the language that alarmed me is current law, I was – and still am – concerned about the proposed bill’s establishment of the office of “obmudsman”.  My chief complaint is that this [Read More ... ]
