On this Happy August 16th also known as “No More Cheneys in Congress” Day, I want to make a few points about some changes in my life and the reason for my slower output on my website and the snail-like release related to my book. First of all, there a few political families that can truly be blamed for the rapid decline of the United States. Names ending in Bush and Clinton played a huge role. But the Cheney family represented by Father Dick and Daughter Liz may actually be two of the worst politicians in history. Promoting nothing but empire and endless war since 2001, they have added no benefit to anyone’s lives unless you are a military contractor. Harriet Hageman will beat Liz Cheney by approximately 35 points in the Wyoming primary today. Whether Ms. Hageman will be a good politician is anyone’s guess (I am leaning towards NO). But at least we can finally shovel the final pieces of dirt onto the Cheney family’s political career. Second, I pulled my son out of the public school system last week. This was a long time coming. There are three primary reasons why this occurred.
First, the threat of masking continues to exist within these school districts. Even though it has been relaxed for now, I can no longer trust these public school administrators. Whatever “science” they are getting their information from, it has been proven over and over and over that masks don’t work while causing childhood development problems. I can no longer risk my son’s future at a school district that feels like it has declared war on my son.
Second, watching his education online from March of 2020 to June of 2022 has been a painful experience. The repetition of the classroom had my son repeating information dozens of times over. His academic decline started quickly after the lockdowns. When my wife and I realized this problem, he was already a grade behind. So, I started teaching homeschooling an hour a day on the side outside his normal remote school hours. This one hour created a tremendous improvement in his cognitive and academic skills (This was also proven through testing on campus later in the year). Since my son showed great improvement with extra attention from his parents, this gave us another reason to pull him out of public school.
Finally, the education that he is learning is a complete joke. Once I began to study his curriculum, I was horrified by its abject simplicity. Last year, this became a huge political issue. Since people of the left-wing liberal persuasion have tremendous influence over the education system in this country, many of them thought that the education they were giving our children was an improvement over the average education from 20 years ago. They are absolutely wrong. In the 6th grade, my son does not even understand many of the basics of writing including what a prepositional phrase is or a conjunction. Almost everyone of his classmates has this problem. The teaching of American history and Civics is a joke. There is no teaching of the dialogue inside the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution except for small snippets which the educators decided were the most important. Ask any child today what the five freedoms of the people are in the 1st Amendment (For the record, they are Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, Freedom of the Press, Freedom to Assemble, and the Ability of any Citizen to Petition the Government for Grievances) and you will find that most Harvard graduates cannot recite all five freedoms. History is now taught with no context. It always starts with the Revolution against the British. Only specific events are discussed. After moving on from this period, all of modern-day history becomes about identity. While American history is dark and racist, liberal academics focus our children on this racism. No perspective is given. History jumps from one oppressed person to another. Nothing positive is really discussed. If you want to know why the millennial and Z Generation are all social justice warriors thinking that they live inside the most racist nation on Earth, look no further than the public education system. When I was younger, I felt history was too nationalistic. We swept over terrible moments like the Trail of Tears or the Chinese Exclusion Act to focus on the greatness of our country. We put too much emphasis on the historical wars that we have fought. I believe most liberals wanted to give a more balanced perspective when they took over the public schools. Unfortunately, the teaching of these topics has swung so far back into the other direction, that they resemble a Babylon Bee article more than a proper way to learn knowledge. Don’t get me started on what passes for science today or this blog is going to go another page.
So my son is now getting a proper education. He is entering the 6th grade. I ordered three 5th grade classes (Math, Science, and History) and one 4th grade class (English) because that is where he currently resides academically. Two years were lost to COVID-19 despite the fact that children are rarely impacted by this virus. The education system will burn in hell for what they have done over the past two years. It may have taken my wife and I too long to figure these problems out. But we will never be fooled again!
