I live in a world where my values and priorities make me an oddity and rarity. I used to struggle with being a misfit, but now I don't want to fit in. I am an intelligent and accomplished woman with a very practical nature. I educate my own children, grow my own food as much as possible, and make do.

  • As we stand up we can help reverse what is being taught. This is a great video. All parents should watch this. We homeschool but one of our children elected to go to public High School. We got involved and we were surprised at several issues. We contacted and had direct meetings with the Principal and Librarian to show them. They listened and made changes... It works. Get involved and help our children.

  • Who here is making adjustments in there lives? In our family we are focusing more on goals, and are not really concerned about this "tide of fear" (not sure what to call it) that has consumed even mostly rational people. Fear paralyzes, now is the time for action.

  • 2 things that my 12 year old said this week that I never expected to hear:
    1) "I like fractions."
    2) "I need to work more on my writing."
    Both are things he has resisted doing in the past. I think this homeschool thing is working.

  • This came through in an email recently. If anyone knows where I need to give credit, let me know in the comments.

    "There was a chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class.

    One day while the class was in the lab, the professor noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt.

    The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting Communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country's government and install a new communist regime.

    In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked: "Do you know how to catch wild pigs?"

    The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line.

    The young man said that it was no joke. "You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free food.

    When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence.

    They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side.

    The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again. You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.

    Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity."

    The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening in America & Canada. The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare entitlements, medicine, drugs, etc., while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time.

    One should always remember two truths:

    1. There is no such thing as a free lunch, and
    2. You can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than
    you can do it yourself."
