A General Understanding of Common Core

Posted by on Nov 21, 2012 in Agenda 21, Education, Family, Utah State Headlines | 0 comments

The following 5 videos cover a 30 minute run through of the Common Core State Standards.   To understand how it is affecting Utah I invite you to visit Common Core whatiscommoncore.wordpress.com/.  3 Moms in Utah have put forth extensive research in finding the truth of Common Core.   They have provided excellent information and have been noted by some as leading the Nation in a grassroots effort to stop Common Core.

Another valuable website in Utah is “Utahans against Common Core” www.utahnsagainstcommoncore.com/. We ask that you sign the petition.  Currently there are over 2100 names, however that is not enough.  More parents need to know the harm that will be brought to their children if we continue to implement Common Core.

Common Core is a socialist program.  It combines other programs such as Agenda 21 and Obamacare.

Again I encourage and invite you to watch the videos below.

The Morning After – Its Not Over!

Posted by on Nov 7, 2012 in Education, Family, Lisa's Personal Insights, National News, Religion, U.S History | 1 comment

This morning the sun rose, bright and clear.  For half of American citizens it was accompanied by peace of being secure.  Their modern values have voted for a Marxist government, under the guise of  security; Mandated healthcare, increased of taxes upon themselves and others, less military.  In a number of states the smoking of Marijuana is now legal, and not just for medicinal purposes.  Same –sex marriage is legal.  Our food is being rationed in the schools.  Our education is no longer inspiring, but necessary collectivism.  Religious faiths are fighting for religious freedom.  Energy is going even higher as coal plants shut down.  Small Businesses are burdened with  regulation upon regulation, to the point where they fall under the weight, closing their doors and laying off employees.

I’ve read on facebook, Obama supporters say “now I have peace,”  “we are safe,”  “I hope that the government will work correctly now.”  Do I dare quote from the Lord, our Savior “Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do?”

For countless generations now, the opposition of Liberty have known that the best way to conquer and control was not through war, but through slow progression of changing the message.  However, the original message remains the same, it is constant!   Liberty is the only way to truly live!

“The question before the human race is, whether the God of nature shall govern the world by his own laws, or whether priests and kings shall rule it by fictitious miracles” – John Adams

I re- write Adam’s quote “The question before Americans is, whether the God of nature shall govern America by his own laws, or whether men and Presidents shall rule it by fictitious miracles.”

Leaning on God’s knowledge is extremely hard when we are not able to see the whole plan.  However faith without works is dead.  The Founding Fathers knew that!  High morals and deep principles were needed then to maintain the cause of liberty.  I stand and shout that this morning now than ever we need to proclaim the same message!

I love Patrick Henry’s speech that he gave in the Virginia Convention, March 23, 1775: “It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth — and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those, who having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”

We cannot give in.  Hope leads to Faith, Faith leads to Action, Action leads to Knowledge.

Those of us that know have a responsibility to teach.  We must be unwavering in where our foundation of truth lies!  We must teach by example. God knows all things, therefore we should know that this defeat is for his purposes.  I can marginally assume that it is to awaken more people, for isn’t every soul great in the eyes of God?

“It is necessary for every American, with becoming energy to endeavor to stop the dissemination of principles evidently destructive of the cause for which they have bled. It must be the combined virtue of the rulers and of the people to do this, and to rescue and save their civil and religious rights from the outstretched arm of tyranny, which may appear under any mode or form of government.”  – Mercy Warren, History of the Rise, Progress, and Termination of the American Revolution, 1805

This morning I will not be wearing black, nor will I hang my head in shame.  The cause I fight for is just!  My children, my family, and my friends will not see me mourn today.  For Liberty is not dead.

Is Patrick Henry’s quote not equally relevant today as it was in his time: “Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! “ -Patrick Henry, speech in the Virginia Convention, March 23, 1775

Stand, with head held high.  Take pride that the truth doesn’t waiver, that our cause is Just.  God’s ways are not our ways, and He has not forsaken us.  One day we may thank God for un-answered prayers!  The sun is shining and the future looks bright and we have work to do.  Liberty is not idol!

American is the home of the free, land of the brave.  God bless us and God Bless America!

Where does your treasure lie?

Posted by on Oct 19, 2012 in Around the World, Economy, Education, Family | 0 comments

Reading this article I cannot help the deep concern I have for the children and family in Sweden right now. In 2010, Sweden adopted a totalitarian view of education and are pressuring parents heavily, to put there children as young as 1 into government hands through day care and pre-school. Sweden may have turned the Socialism look at economics, does not mean that Sweden if a free country. All this article shows is that they know a Capitalist system works. Freedoms of speech, religion, healthcare, education are still heavily controlled by the government. And in fact it is illegal to homeschool children there. So what is the moral of this story? Your treasure is where your heart is!

“Sweden’s colorful, ponytail-sporting finance minister Anders Borg is one of the few economic thinkers in Europe who understands the problem with Keynesian stimulus measures is that, even if they provide a small temporary economic buzz, they leave you with a hangover of malinvestment, of resources placed where central planners want them rather than where the market says they belong. Hire an unemployed person to be a government form-filler or poet and you’re simply putting off the day when he’ll have a real job that meets real demands.”
