Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Best Election Ever

Sorry I haven't posted in a year.  That's what life does to you when you have a bunch of kids growing up.

I'm just happy to say that it's exciting to watch the news these days. I love what Trump said about 501c3 churches. Never thought I'd hear that in my lifetime. I've been very interesed in the mechanization of the modern church, which I hope to post on in the future.

12 Reasons I Use a King James Bible: Copyright


The King James Bible has no copyright. For the sake of argument, how do you copyright God's Holy Scriptures? How to you get the up the audacity to put a "copyright-use with permission" proviso on the Holy Bible? Also, does the Holy Spirit get a cut of the royalties? How does that work? Can you actually copyright the words of Christ? Unless, of course, the manuscripts they are translating from are not in fact holy. But that's a whole other post!

In order to get a separate copyright, the new work must be at least 10% different than the original work. Therefore, the butchered and twisted wording is an awkward attempt to get a new Bible published so that it can start making somebody some $$$$.

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. (I Cor 2:12)

When Did the Fourth of July Become Another Military Holiday?

My husband had the radio in the car turned on yesterday, and it was more adoration of all things military. We already have Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, D-Day, Pearl Harbor Day, and now they're taking over July 4th. It's every other month the media and the small towns that listen to that same media constantly that pump soldier worship in our face.

Am I against soldiers? No, but you have to admit, it's starting to get pretty creepy. It's like Imperial Rome or one of those scenes from a totalitarian dictatorship where the public is forced to watch the military parades of power down the street. I am for National Guard and the original intent of men fighting for their homes when they are under imminent attack. I am for the Swiss style militia system where every citizen is trained to defend their country in an organized fashion. The United States once had a similar system, but given our massive size, it was deemed that the National Guard system was more efficient. In the long run, it has separated the masses from their part in defense of country and allowed a massive military-industrial complex to take over.

A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defence agst. foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.”
 --James Madison, Speech in Constitutional Convention, June 29, 1787


It's almost as if the media would have us believe that the Founding Fathers and all their warnings about central banking and standing armies never existed. They'd prefer that you'd never think about the fact that such a small percentage of the colonial population overthrew the British Imperial Army. Don't think about how kids can't ride bikes or go to the playground without having a CPS investigation opened up on them - freedom! 
Don't think about how you can't go buy a car with cash without the risk of being pulled over and having it all civil forfeitured away with no evidence of wrongdoing -freedom!
Don't think about how we pay more taxes than ever before to make some people exceedingly wealthy -- freedom!
Don't think about all those things, just wave the flag and be happy as the tanks rolls down the street. 

Happy Fourth, I guess.

Coach Dave Sets the Kent Hovind Record Straight

I've been confused about what Kent Hovind was actually accused with. Here Coach Dave Daubenmire puts in plain English. Currently, he is in jail for structuring and is on trial for mail fraud for not hand carrying his court appeals to the court (because he's in jail). He is also charged with contempt for continuing to appeal. He was within his legal rights to do both these things. There are no charges right now for tax issues or anything like that.

Where Isis Came From

In my forays through the Churchianity websites, I find that many are afraid of Isis. No doubt it is a brutal collection of the craziest thugs Islam has to offer. But where did this group come from and how are they so fantastically armed? You'd think with a multi-billion dollar military and intelligence network, the US government would have more of an explanation than the shrugged shoulders and exasperated pleas for military contracts and sweet, sweet free money funding and military action.

Here is Ben Swann, investigative reporter extraordinaire, explaining how Isis came to be.




I think if someone took time to track down all these funny sounding names, we could probably cross-reference a lot of them to CIA training camps and the like. I'm really getting tired of our churches telling us how evil Isis is, but then not acknowledging, caring, researching where these people are actually coming from. They won't because East Asia has always been at war with Oceana, don't you know? Come on, the antichrist has got to get us all organized before he can make his final moves. But the USA could never, ever be apart of that because: Jesus, apple pie, kittens!!! Oh say can you see....

The lie falls apart when people know the truth; the Truth sets you free, etc.

Dealing with Dyslexia

Disclaimer: This is not a comprehensive dyslexia post. This is broad brush look at what homeschooling with a special need (such as not being able to read) affects your life.

Background: My husband and I are extremely academic people. Straight A's, technical, scientific degree-holders, early readers, and self-professing nerds. We met on the school bus to math team competition, and found we both knew Rush Limbaugh's call-in number by heart. Get the picture?

My oldest daughter learned to read at five. I didn't want her going to kindergarten and getting screwed up with whole language, so I thought teaching her phonics before she went would head all that off at the pass. She learned to read without much effort on my part. When I pulled her out of school a couple of years later, I thought homeschooling would be a breeze. Teach them to read, then they'll teach themselves everything else. Simple. Easy Peasy.

Unless, your kid cannot read no matter what you do. I mean no matter WHAT you do.
