California Assembly Bill Aimed at Homeschoolers

I recently received this by email, please share this post or copy and paste this info and share across social media.

Assembly Bill Aimed at Homeschoolers

On Friday, February 17, 2018, AB 2756 was introduced in the California Assembly by Assembly Members Medina, Eggman and Gonzalez Fletcher.

The authors claim that the bill would protect children enrolled in home-based private schools by ensuring compliance with fire safety regulations. The bill would not accomplish that purpose, and must be seen for what it is: a bald grab for the power of the state to enter private homes.

The HSC Board and legal team believe this bill not only fails completely to achieve the stated goal, it imposes an unacceptable risk not only to the right to educate children at home, but also to the privacy rights of law-abiding citizens. We encourage all of our members to learn about the bill and about these risks, and to contact their own state Assembly members to voice their opposition.

Finding a gem: A reminder to preserve our precious culture

By A Tradional Guy @atraditionalguy

Recently while I was out for a walk I came across some junk that had been put out for a curb side rubbish collection. There were piles of rubbish at most every house I had past and I had carried on past them without a second thought however something stopped at this particular pile of junk. As I cast my eye over it I noticed it was a general collection of household rubbish however one particular box caught my eye. It was a box of crockery and porcelain items most of which were unremarkable however one item caught my attention completely.

It was an egg shaped item with little flecks of glitter and the most precious images around it’s surface. The images are of the most beautiful white figures I have ever seen on a piece like this before. I knew immediately that I was blessed to find this rare and beautiful gem so without hesitation I picked it up and brought it home.

When I got home I placed the item on my desk and just sat there for a while and studied it thinking how wonderful it was that I found it. As I continued to look at it a thought came to me.

If I had not come across that box of what someone else thought to be rubbish and saved this priceless gem it would have surely been destroyed and lost forever. As I reflected on this concept I thought about white culture and how precious it is and how like the little egg I found it stands to be in danger of being lost forever.

Finding the egg has served to remind me that our culture is beautiful and precious. It needs to be preserved and protected because it is unique and once it is lost we can’t get it back again. Which is why we must do everything we can to make sure our culture is not lost.

#OurChildren

American children deserve the best.

A lot of people ask why I’m against DACA, why do I think dreamers need to go back to their country of origin? Here are some reasons why…

The law was broken, period. Their age is not relevant. If a man broke onto a home while a family was away on vacation and brought his daughter with him would you tell that family they had to let the young girl stay in their home because she wasn’t the one who committed the crime? Because she hadn’t done anything wrong now that family must feed her, clothe her and pay for her schooling? Of course not.

First, dreamers do have higher rates of violent crime than US Citizens, second our country is trillions of dollars in debt, yet currently 1/4-1/3 of Mexico’s entire population lives in our country! We are feeding them, housing them, clothing them, educating them, giving them colleges scholarships after 14 years of free public school and day care.

We cannot afford this. They need to go home and make their country great again or apply to come back legally, the right way. I have a dear friend who was brought here illegally by her parents as a child. She made it a priority to get legal status and she did so by the age of 17.

Another friend who was brought as a child slacked off and didn’t get his citizenship, then Trump was elected and he knew he needed to get serious. Him and his American wife left their children in the care of relatives, returned to Mexico, got the paperwork they needed and completed getting him a legal status.

Any dreamer who hasn’t put forth the effort to get legal should not be excused. We have laws, we have borders, we have rules. They must be upheld. It is not fair to American children and citizens to give dreamers a pass on the crimes committed and then say our tax money must pay for them. Nope.

Just as the Bible commands, 1 Tim 5:8 we are to take care of our families first and it is heresy not to. To put it in none religious terms, it’s cultural, civil and genetic suicide not to secure what is ours for ourselves and our posterity, just as the founders of our country said.

My children have dreams too. My children matter too. My children’s ancestors built this country for them, not for illegal south Americans. Honor the law, honor your people and family, honor your ancestors. Do what is right and let the consequence follow.
