Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 02 April 2014 00:00

NEA Leader says C. C. Implementation “Botched”—Proponent Mike Huckabee Advises: “Rebrand it, Refocus it, but Don’t retreat.”

With national supporters and proponents of Common Core retreating or urging more deception, Sheri Few, Republican candidate for South Carolina Superintendent of Education is digging in her heels and “taking no prisoners.”

In Greenville recently, Few said “the Palmetto State needs an education superintendent committed to stopping Common Core and charged the current Zais-Childs administration with giving ‘lip service” to those opposing the nationalized Common Core school curriculum scheme.”

Normally mild mannered Richard Cash removed the gloves and pulled out all stops during his address at the One Nation Under God Rally, Monday night at the TD Center in Greenville. His audience received his message with enthusiasm.

Richard-Cash_Page-01

He warned his audience in advance that they would not be hearing a typical campaign address.

Cash outlined the problems the American people face and their origins, from removal of Bibles and prayer from classrooms to legalized abortion and attacks on traditional marriage and destruction of the family unit. He did not overlook the fact that Senator Lindsey Graham, his chief opponent in the Republican primary, is part of the problem, citing him as the only Republican who voted to confirm two ultra-liberal women, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, to the United States Supreme Court.

Common Core Truth PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 02 April 2014 00:00

The controversial educational indoctrination initiative called “Common Core” could be described as “deception of Biblical proportions from the pits of hell.” That description, however, must be toned down to avoid scaring many people who need to be confronted with “truth” and deal with it, because it is truth that will set us free from deception.

The American people are not stupid; therefore, clever deception is necessary if they are to accept enslavement of their children and destruction of their constitutional republic. Using group psychology, clever advertising and the “carrot and stick” method of rewards and punishment on teachers and school administrators, they have hope of success, despite a parental rebellion.

For the purpose of this discussion, let’s suspend the arguments for and against Common Core for the time being, and deal with what we believe to be truth (facts).

Dr-Ben-Carson---3-26-14Conservative commentator Benjamin Carson addressed the Great Homeschool Convention at the TD Center in Greenville, Saturday night.

Dr. Carson told the audience: “I am not politically correct,” explaining that people came to this country seeking freedom from governments telling them what they could say, what they could do and where they could live. “They can only be successful through intimidation and fear, and if people are not intimidated by them and don’t fear them, they have nothing.”

Our Founding Fathers founded a country where the people were at the center, not the government, but this is changing. He called Obamacare the worst thing since slavery.

Dr. Carson and his wife Candy signed books and autographs afterward.

“Justice” in South Carolina PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Dill, Publisher   
Wednesday, 26 March 2014 00:00

Can people who enter a courtroom in South Carolina expect to      receive justice based on the law and the circumstances, without bias or favoritism? In some circumstances, the client who is represented by an attorney who is also a member of the South Carolina House or Senate may have a decisive advantage. That is the way the system is designed to work in this state. Then why doesn’t it get fixed?

Lawyers are afraid to complain, because they have to represent clients in these courts and most citizens don’t know how the “good old boy” system works, therefore they don’t know there is a problem.
