I've lived in Canon City my whole life. It makes me sick to think of where this country is headed. The solutions are in God's Word.

A Seeming Endless Supply of Evil Cops

Cops just keep streaming through the window. Out of all those cops, there is not a single good cop to be found.

For a little bit of background, someone from out-of-state called the cops on these people. The cops were able to see that the allegations  in the phone call (that the woman had injured wrists) were false, but insisted on entering the house anyway, and taking the kids away.

As if all of that wasn’t wicked enough, the cops attempted to erase the video, but didn’t realize the video was uploaded to the cloud.  Thank God!

I hope these people can sue and bankrupt the city.

Cops Killed in Douglas County

This morning the news broke of sheriff’s deputies being called to a domestic disturbance and at least one is dead and others wounded. There is little information about what happened and the killer is still at large.

The purpose of the 2nd Amendment is to protect the people’s right to kill cops. When news first breaks of cops being killed there is too little information to know whether the killer has committed murder. The killing of a cop may be biblically justified and to assume otherwise makes you unamerican and reveals unbiblical thinking. Thousands of Americans have died for our right to bear arms. To assume that every cop who is killed is murdered is to disrespect the sacrifice service men have made to protect our rights found in the constitution (specifically the 2nd Amendment).

That being said, it is always sad when someone dies prematurely and my heart goes out to their families and friends.

“What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.”

Bootlicking Americans

You were never taught how to be free. You were only taught that you are free.

If you think it’s great that the government pulls you over and doesn’t kill or beat you, but only checks your papers, you are a boot licking slave, and have no idea what freedom is.

Mexico Is More Free Than the U.S.

He makes so many good points in this video.

It’s time to consider moving to a free country, or at least becoming a perpetual tourist in a free country. America isn’t free, and anyone who spreads that falsehood is either confused or lying. There isn’t freedom for the unborn and there isn’t freedom for anyone else. As he referenced in another video, you have to jump through hoops to buy milk. Give me a break.

Common Core Is Our Only Hope

For several years now, I’ve only ever heard people mocking common core. I’ve seen dozens of examples of how warped math education is in that system.

In a Facebook conversation, I pointed out that American public schools rank 24th in the world in science and reading, and 38th in the world in math.  Public education is a rat hole for money and is harmful to children.

I was a amused to see a local school board member pipe up in response, and pin her hopes for moving up in the rankings on common core.

There’s a lot to comment on there, so I’ll try to be brief.

1. I certainly wouldn’t trust the same people who have driven our education system into the dirt to devise the solution.

2. Common core is a joke, and will only take us further down in the rankings.

3. If, as she says, you don’t have the know-how to teach your children, why would you send them to the same system that failed you?

4. Home schooling can be done for free, so money isn’t an issue.

5.  I sympathize with single parents and people who are genuinely lacking in time to spend with their kids. Churches should step in to help in these situations wherever possible. But, many people who think they need two incomes need to reduce their spending and raise their children properly.

Scripture says that we should teach our children as we lie down as we sit at home and as we walk along the road (Deuteronomy 6). Nowhere is government given the job of educating children and when it educates children, it is usurping jurisdiction from its rightful owners. And it’s clear why governments would want to educate the citizens, as they have a vested interest in the docility of the population within its borders. But just like everything else government does, it does poorly and expensively.

The days are numbered for public school. Technology is going to drastically change education in the next decade or two. Public education will die a slow death as new competitors arise and drastically outperform it.

Public School Teachers

A public school teacher acquaintance said that she wishes homeschool parents would pray for public schools and explain that there are many good teachers working in public school.

Here’s my response to her.

I’m not trying to be mean when I say this. I think that there are several biblical issues that are clear to me, but seem to not be understood by most Christians, and are rarely or never taught from the pulpit.
 The public school system (and all American government agencies) are forbidden from acknowledging Christ as Lord. Jesus said in Matthew 12:30 that you’re either for Him or against Him. Public school cannot be for Christ, therefore it is antichrist.
 
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge (Proverbs 1:7). All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hidden in Christ (Colossians 2:3). Anyone who attempts to gain knowledge apart from acknowledging Christ is directly contradicting Scripture.
 
Nowhere does Scripture give the education of children to government. It is explicitly given to parents (Deuteronomy 6). It is funded by theft and socialism, and I will not pray for it to prosper but for it to be abolished. I will pray that you have wisdom in speaking boldly for Christ. But I’m afraid that if you speak as boldly as you ought, that you will not remain employed there for very long.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more on this topic.
I certainly sympathize with someone who spent four years in college preparing for a career as a teacher and who later sees the truth. I have found that it is hard for people who are heavily invested in something are incapable of thinking logically about it, and I’m sure I’m included in that as well.
