Baby Snatched from Mom for Single Medical Marijuana Offense

Because foster care is so much better for the baby than a mother who tried to relieve her pain with medical marijuana tea. A first offense for using marijuana is typically very light. What are we to make of a woman punished by losing her baby? Even the child protection bureaucrats thought the judge was too severe. Cleveland.com reports, “Mom’s use of marijuana tea leads to magistrate ordering removal of newborn, contrary to advice of county workers.”  Hollie Sanford’s decision to use a marijuana-based Read more […]

Parents Threatened for “Enclosing” Children in Park?

Why are parents threatened for letting children play? Remember the series of horror stories we heard about parents leaving their kids in vehicles? Well, just recently a Maryland mother was charged with allowing a child under the age of eight “to be locked or confined in a dwelling, building, enclosure, or motor vehicle while the person charged is absent.” The only problem with this is that the children were not locked anywhere. They were not confined to any “dwelling, building, enclosure, Read more […]

Mother Facing Prison for Caring for Sick Son

This story about a mother facing prison shows that state law enforcement officials are torturers. Minnesota has voted to legalize medical marijuana. The law will probably be abused by some who really just want to get high. It will probably open up new avenues for getting the drug for recreational purposes. But the evidence seems overwhelming that, for some, marijuana is the perfect medicine. This shouldn’t surprise us. Most dangerous drugs have or had medicinal uses. Some are obviously helpful Read more […]

Russia against the Sex Pervert Nation

Our bureaucracies have quietly turned us into the sex pervert nation of the world. Sometimes I see news stories that seem so far-fetched I think I must be reading dystopian science fiction. But, no; it is real news. I’ve already written on how the U.S. State Department is insisting on imposing homosexual marriage on all the nations of the world by forcing them to change their customs and laws to accommodate homosexual “marriages” (as they pretend to be) among State Department employees Read more […]

Senate Threatening American Families by Considering UN Treaty on Persons With Disabilities

One of the disgusting aspects of the United Nations is that we can, at almost any time that the Senate is in session, find all our state laws overturned by the ratification of a U.N. Treaty. According to the Home School Legal Defense Fund, despite defeating it last year, the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) is back before the Senate. The UNCPRD isn’t about protecting people with disabilities—our nation’s own laws and strong leadership overseas already do Read more […]

Father Convicted & Punished for Making Son Walk a Mile Home from School

If you want to know why it seems reasonable in our current society for a family to blame the second amendment for their parenting failure, then you might consider what happened to a father who disciplined his son by making him walk home from school. Via The Garden Island: A Kilauea man was given probation and a fine Wednesday in 5th Circuit Court for punishing his son by making him walk a mile for not answering his questions — a form of discipline a judge called “old school” and no longer Read more […]

Opt-Out of Common Core Now for the 2014-2015 School Year

Parental rights to raise children to respect the parent’s traditions and values have been under attack from many fronts including the U.S. Department of Education. The implementation of Common Core Standards undermines parental rights to make educational decisions for their children.  Now is the time for parents to protest this intrusion by opting their child out of Common Core for the 2014-2015 school year. Race to the Top was a three-year program which expires in 2014 making NOW the ideal Read more […]

Citizens Can Control School Curricula

Citizens can control the curricula taught in our schools. Parents sitting on curriculum-selection committees that choose textbooks can identify objectionable materials and protest before the state or district purchases the text book. Health curriculum has received a lot of attention lately, but citizens could have protected their children from exposure to objectionable curriculum by participating in the selection of health curriculum to be used in the schools. The first step is to read the Read more […]

Father Arrested for Acting Like a Father in School: What is Your Decision, Crossville?

It is easy to point fingers at the sheriff’s deputy and school “resource officer.” Indeed, they bear blame for their abuse of power, and forgetting for whom they work, and the ones who pay their salaries. But, ultimately, the fault remains with the people of Crossville, Tennessee. From the New American: With traffic backed up on a busy highway as parents waited to pick up their kids, Howe and his fiancée, Jennifer Long, decided to pick up the two kids, ages eight and 14, on foot rather than Read more […]

Parents Not Allowed On Their Kids’ Prison Bus

The parents didn’t respond right. They sound like they are, emotionally, not too far from the bullies they (though they?) were confronting. But something really bothers me about the way the authorities responded. From the Fox News Website: Two parents were arrested and charged after police say they unlawfully entered a school bus and threatened children when their son told them he was being bullied. Christina and Christopher Gring allegedly got on their bus after their son came to them crying, Read more […]

On Child Protective Services, Part 1: Putting Children Before the Family

Many of you in the South may be familiar with DFCS (pronounced dee-fax), the Division of Family and Child Services. In California, this same agency is called DCFS, the Department of Children and Family Services. I think these labels say a lot about what the agencies are designed to do. While the service DFCS renders is the “division” of family and child, at DCFS, they put children before the family—to the detriment of the family unit, the authority of the parents, and even the well-being of Read more […]
