Happy New Year. Let's Get Our Kids To Read

As we enter the New Year, I see we are being bombarded with the usual caustic lies and propaganda from the so called Mainstream Media. In my last post, I mentioned that fact that I had my grand kids here for the holidays and wondered what we had done to them for the future. As I said, the education system is in shambles and the younger generation can’t (or won’t) even read much less pay attention to what’s really important. And that is everyone’s fault.

Having said that, just a few samples of the hate and vile from the left:

MSNBC: Bush’s book is selling so well because he was so hated

Kos: What If Christians Were Treated as Badly as Muslims? (What a joke here! Check the stats from NY. 250 or more reported hate crimes against Jews as compared to 11 against Muslims)

Ezra Klein: ( This is one of the most assine statements I have ever seen from the Liberals, but shows their pure hatred for the law of the land) “One, is that it has no binding power on anything; and two, the issue of the Constitution is not that people don't read the text they think they're following, the issue of the Constitution is that the text is confusing because it was written more than a hundred years ago, and what people believe it says differs from person to person; and differs depending on what they want to get done. So, I wouldn't expect much coming out of this."

I could go on and on, but you get the drift. We are being besieged with sound bites and lies all with one purpose in mind. To subvert everything that our founding fathers gave us. Marxist Socialists with the help of power lusting Republicans (as we know there are many in government who don’t give a damn about anything other than the power as proven by their actions).

We must somehow get the message to our kids that our country is being destroyed from within. The way to do this is through READING! Schools teach our kids to only read what the elite want them to read. We, as parents and grandparents must push our kids beyond the limits of the education system.

Take the Narnia Chronicles for one example. A superb series now in movie form and all we hear from the left is “oh, it’s horrible that it has so many religious overtones”. Let the kids read the book s and decided for themselves.

My kids and grandkids love to read. I tell them if they are studying a subject, they should try to look at both sides as they persue it. Read everything they can about something than make their decision. Kids are smarter than the establishment would have one think and surprisingly will come to the right decision more often than not, given all of the information.

I for one have always been a history buff. David Halberstam has some outstanding historical stuff. Newt Gingrich, a history professor in his own right also shines in this venue. I would highly recommend Dame Margaret Thatcher’s memoirs as well as Nancy Reagan’s fine book of letters. I also would recommend anything by the late Senator Patrick Moynihan. While I didn’t side with all of his stands, his arguments are compelling. And (libbies get ready to choke) Glenn Beck. Say what you want about him pro or con, but his books are not only good reads, but well researched. And as always, these particular people along with Rush always have said one thing. Do not just take their words for something. (I remember Dame Thatcher saying that in one of her speeches). Study everything than make a decision. Sage advice to our kids.

Below are the blogs I follow constantly. These folks seem to be tireless in not only exposing the Liberal Hypocrisy, but also laying out the fact; something the MSM has forgotten how to do. Please note here. These are some of my favorites. I make it a point to read as much as possible from all points of view. These in my mind stick out.

Atlas Shrugs

Fabulous Pamela Geller fights what seems to be a losing battle as to the open anti-Semitism in this country and the world. This woman is tireless and absolutely WOWs me.

Warning Signs

Alan Caruba is a genuinely great writer. I have learned so much from his essays, all well researched and based on years of knowledge.

Flopping Aces

This is an absolutely great sight. They have a group of regular contributors as well as welcoming Reader Posts. Some of the best stories I’ve ever read by Skookum as well as the others.

The Liberal Lie - The Conservative Truth
Ken Taylor lays his heart and soul out there. He loves his country. What more is there to say.

Michelle Malkin

Michelle is well known and is easily one of the best Conservatives out there. Her books are must reads! She has fact on her side. A great lady in my book.

The New Jacksonian Blog

Mike Kaplan’s blog is insightful in many ways. Again, I’ve learned so much as he lays out the Jacksonian philosophy.

Insight on Freedom

J.D. Longstreet has a fabulous blog here. He takes no prisoners and comes directly to the point. Patriotic and good.

These are only some of the blogs I follow as is evidenced by my list on the left. However, as I said. My reading is not relegated to those few sites. And that is the message I’m trying to get across to everyone. Our children and grandchildren must READ! They must be taught to look at all aspects of something than make a decision. They must be taught the principles this country was founded on, not the garbage that they are now being force fed! They are the future of this country and we would all be remiss if we let this chance to steer them correctly slip by. That would mean parents are going to have to take the raising of their children away from the government!

I want to wish one and all a safe and prosperous Happy New Year!
