Tuesday Night Open Mic for August 10, 2010

Greetings from the beaches of an undisclosed location. I have put palm trees up to block off my section of the beach. This evening I had dinner with a man who claimed he was the King of Spain. He was in shorts and a t-shirt, so I am not sure. He also had no personal security, which was odd. But I can say without reservation that my vacation has not cost the taxpayers a single dime. Although it is costing Mrs. Weapon a ton! It is relaxing, however, and much needed. I apologize again for my limited participation during the vacation, but I am benefitting from the relaxation. Tonight we have a few interesting topics. We have the Department of Justice stalling on the MOVE Act, the Department of Defense admitting that government run health care is failing, home schooling on the rise, and the climate change fear monger crowd refusing to let a dead horse alone.

Guest Commentary… A View on Education

guest-commentaryWe come to yet another Friday night with a guest commentary that is right in line with the discussions around public education that we have been having throughout the week. I think that education is a vitally important subject for us to be talking about. Those that we most disagree with in regard to our philosophy on freedom and liberty are the result of use of our public education system to indoctrinate our youth into the system and create a false understanding of the state and what it represents. Many of us here are finding, albeit later in life, that what we were told in school was less than 100% honest. If we are to get our country back to greatness, it begins with an in depth understanding of our public schools. Their purpose, their methods, and their failures. Only in understanding how much intent went into transforming the schools to help their cause can we start to understand how enormous the task is before us.
