Summer is trying to turn to Fall here in Northwest Florida without much luck. It’s Hot, Dry – no rain for 35 days. I watch the birds, bees, and butterflies take turns sipping from the bird bath and fluttering through the cold water spray from natural springs below ground when I turn on the sprinkler. […]

Using Children as Political Pawns

 

Most people would laugh if you suggested that in spite of the perception that child sacrifice has ended, it hasn’t. A person need only look at the way the immigrant children are being used to know that figuratively, child sacrifice for the political Left is alive and well.

You might think I’m using hyperbole, but there is a history of the Left using and manipulating children for politics, and these practices are getting worse. Does anyone remember which Democratic National Convention planted children at the podium who despaired about the effects of climate change? They were being used to call out the potential end of the world if we didn’t all take action. Or what about the children who were taught songs about President Obama?

In an interview with Reuters (as reported by The Hill), Bob Iger, the CEO and Chairman of the Board of the Walt Disney Company, has proclaimed that “It will be very difficult for Disney to film in Georgia if the ‘heartbeat’ bill takes effect.” (Emphasis below mine). More

Parenting Thoughts: The Virtue of “No”

 

I think I did alright in the child-raising department. There are a lot of things I don’t do well, and a few I do very badly, but I think I’ve been a good parent, particularly in the last decade or so. There’s quite a bit of on-the-job training involved in parenting — hardly any other kind, in fact — and I think I was better at it when I finished than when I started. I’m sure my older children would second that, perhaps with more vigor than I’d like.

If I could pass on a bit of advice, it would be on the important topic of saying “no” to your children.

Having mentioned several days ago that I was an eligibility worker for Los Angeles County, AFDC for a time in the 1960s. I came upon a Dear Abby article, cannot remember the news paper or the year, but was so impressed with it I printed it out and made hundreds of copies to hand out […]

Transgender Curriculum for Kindergarten

 

Our schools have been corrupted in many ways that are difficult to fathom: U.S. History has been distorted, English composition has been bastardized, standards continue to be lowered to accommodate the worst students. And now we are brainwashing students as early as kindergarten, saying that transgender students are normal. How did we arrive at this place?

We often point to the Leftist agenda for these changes in education. Just to give you an idea of how sophisticated these efforts are, we can look at Washington State, where the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) has established new requirements. This summary gives you the highlights, from K-12. In the case of the OSPI, parents were not notified of these changes.

After the horrific developments of the recently passed, expanded New York abortion bill signed into law and celebrated by <cough> Catholic Governor Andrew Cuomo and Virginia Governor Northam’s matter-of-fact infanticide remarks, this video with Dr. Taylor Marshall, his wife, Joy and Timothy Gordon and his wife, Steph is nothing less than a testament to life.

It should be. My 83 year old mother-in-law whipped up a batch and presented it on Saturday in a decorative glittery holiday container. Today it is half gone. What is it about little rice, wheat and corn squares, mini pretzels, nuts, those little cheese it fish, butter, a dash of Worcestershire, and a secret seasoning […]

A 9-year-old boy lobbied successfully to get his town’s ban on snowball fights overturned. Reminded me of some comments by Goethe, circa 1828. He observed that when Englishmen came to town, they were invariably a hit with the local women. Indeed, when one of them came to visit, Goethe found it necessary to brace himself […]

Dear Daughter, This is Why I Won’t Tell You Who I’m Voting for…

 

Dear Daughter,

Yesterday was your 11th birthday. You came out of your room took one look at me in my striped grey sweater, turned on your heels and returned wearing your own sweater that was almost identical. You said, “Mom, now we match!” Even though we were spending the day with your middle school friends, you weren’t embarrassed. You hugged me, and I knew this could be a last.

With the current frenzy and media buzz surrounding the Central American caravan, which is tirelessly marching north to the US-Mexico Border, political pundits from both sides of the aisle are weighing in with a bevy of talking points. In addition, conspiracy theories are being bounced around with reckless abandon as to who is funding the march: is […]

I just thought folks here would sleep more soundly knowing this, courtesy of the National Science Foundation. Actually it continues with a study group until adolescence, to possibly verify early signs that kids who get a lot of support in the family feel better about themselves. At least until they hit the real world. Well, […]

Here is a headline that epitomizes the times in which we are living: “The Ninth Circuit Just Allowed Children To Sue Trump Over Global Warming.” When you see a headline like that, all you can do is shake your head in exasperation and scream out into the ether, “Of course it did!” Because it’s the […]

Flipping through the channels recently, I stumbled onto our local Tallahassee Public Station, featuring the Fiftieth Anniversary of Mr. Rogers Special. Mr. Rogers started out in my hometown of Pittsburgh on WQED. The special is narrated by then stagehand, actor Michael Keaton, who was also a character in the musical skits (think low budget). Michael […]
