"I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power." - Thomas Jefferson 1820

"There is a growing technology of testing that permits us now to do in nanoseconds things that we shouldn't be doing at all." - Dr. Gerald Bracey author of Rotten Apples in Education

A Little Thought on Investments

With the Fed pumping more and more dollars into the economy, tanking the value of the US dollar, people are looking for places to store their wealth to protect it.  Gold prices soared recently as that gleaming yellow metal became a safe haven for wealth. The latest trend shows farm land being gobbled up and speculated upon by hedge fund managers, as food is poised to become the next valuable commodity. What's next?

You have only to look at the memos coming out of the Dept of Ed and speeches by our President to see what is THE most valuable asset in America.  It's our children. So many people want them; want to teach them, to guide them, to mold them. They can hardly wait to get their hands on them as soon as possible after their birth (early ed.) They want to catalog them like valuable works of art (LDS). They want to make sure they are reaching their optimum output capacity (assessments.) High end vehicles get less attention and care.

So if you're looking to invest your most valuable asset, your time, into something that will provide lasting results, consider your children. While you have them over this holiday break, take some time to enjoy your investment.

And those stay at home moms and dads who have been told, by the feminists and others, that they aren't doing anything meaningful, remind them that you have been given the incredibly important job of overseeing the production of our country's most valuable asset, our children. The product of your work will last decades.  Can they say the same?
