Back in the early 1900s, when the professors of education were working overtime to find “scientific” justification for changing reading instruction in American schools from alphabetic phonics to the look-say, sight, or whole-word method, many studies were done to see what type of effect the new teaching method would have on children’s reading ability.
The contest between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama for the presidency will end with a decisive, and possibly even a landslide, victory for Romney in November. Obama's endorsement of homosexual "marriage" has angered many of the blacks who previously supported him; his ObamaCare contraception mandate has alienated a great bloc of the Catholics who voted for him in 2008; and many of his previous adherents are disenchanted because the economy has gone from bad to worse under his leadership.
There are some very serious issues at stake in this year's election — so many that some people may not be able to see the forest for the trees. Individual issues are the trees, but the forest is the future of America as we have known it.
The America that has flourished for more than two centuries is being quietly but steadily dismantled by the Obama administration, during the process of dealing with particular issues.
I am writing you and your colleagues this open letter in order to help you achieve your stated goal of improving American public education so that Americans can face the future with confidence and creativity.
Since the Obama campaign has decided to make an issue of Romney not releasing his tax records for the past five years, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee should ask the president to release certain information about his own past he'd likely prefer to keep hidden.
Apparently a large majority of American parents believe that the exclusion of God from the public schools is not very important and has had little effect on how and what Johnny learns. Otherwise, they would not have so easily acquiesced to the takeover of the schools by the atheists. In other words, for many parents God is a meaningless, ineffective, but comforting concept that need not interfere with anything as important as education. After all, atheist teachers are only interested in education, not religion, and they really care about the children in their charge.
Conservative scholar Dinesh D’Souza has, with Gerald Molen (Schindler’s List) and John Sullivan, produced the documentary 2016: Obama's America, which was recently released in Texas and is now being presented at some 400 theaters across the country. The film persuasively projects a frightening future for America: emaciated in military power, weakened financially, with diminished allies such as Israel in a world increasingly dangerous and threatening.
The Odd Life of Timothy Green is a magical film about a miracle. It truly highlights the importance of family and familial love. It celebrates the wonderful support system that married couple Jim and Cindy have provided for one another, and the unconditional love of parents for their children.
Everything you ever wanted to know about teen depression is on the Internet. Just type in the words “teen depression,” and it’s all there. In a website entitled Teen Depression, I found the following: "Depression is the most common mental health disorder in the United States among teens and adults, and can have a serious impact on the lives of the many teens who suffer from depression." The fact that neither parents, therapists, nor educators will even admit that removing God from education can produce depression is a sign of how spiritually perverse our society has become.
When the presidential campaign gets down to the wire every four years, it seems that voters are stuck with an unappealing “choice” between two major-party candidates who differ little on core issues — their rhetoric notwithstanding. This year's choice between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama is no different.
This has not happened by accident.
