Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

Fascism Definitively Defined & Presidential Rant

Warning: ranting post

I've noticed a lot of confusion of the fascism label lately. I always understood it to mean a government so intertwined with business, that you cannot separate the two. I thought the government worked through select puppet corporations to achieve their ends, whereas socialism/communism is where the government owns the business. Really, they are quite similar, both leading to a totalitarian police state. However, recently I came across an explanation of fascism that really put it into the focus for me. In Richard Maybury's book World War 1: The Rest of the Story and How it Affects You Today--

Fascists believe that ideas such as right and wrong are for ivory tower intellectuals. What is needed is action.
Right and wrong are just matters of opinion, and they accomplish nothing except to keep men of action from getting the job done.
To a fascist, the only guiding principle is, do whatever appears necessary. No exceptions, no limits. 
If free trade appears necessary, we should have free trade. If restrictions on trade appear necessary, we should have restrictions.
If lower taxes appear necessary, that's okay, and if higher taxes appear necessary, that's okay, too.
If freedom appears necessary, fine, and if slavery appears necessary, also fine
If murdering millions appears necessary, why not?
Right and wrong are just matters of opinion.
There is no line a fascist will not cross if he believes it is necessary. This enables a fascist to be a chameleon. On any given issue he will adopt whatever prescription he believes might work. He can appear to be a socialist, a conservative, liberal, libertarian, anything. And if he believes conditions have changed and new prescription is necessary, he will switch without hesitation.
I could have linked a lot of snarky links, but I'm sure a number of characters just leaped into your mind. If any of you out there has had the misfortune of having a psycho/sociopath in your life, you probably have experienced this on an individual level. A psychopath has a talent for setting up situations so outrageous that for you to explain it to someone makes you look like the nut. If you had to explain our current situation to our Founders, can you imagine the puzzled expressions you would receive?

This explanation of fascism leaves everyone from everywhere in the political spectrum open to scrutiny. You no longer can hide behind the big R and hope it will be okay. Don't cry and whine about my not being a Herman Cain cheerleader 'cause no one who won't openly denounce the Fed will get my support. I also will not vote for a globalist which is a beast that uses many political disguises.  How do you know if the politician in question is a global collectivist? Do they unequivocally support the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights in their entirety in word AND in deed. Let's run through the recent talked about presidential Republican candidates:

Mitt Romney - supports socialized medicine which is part of the Communist Manifesto. I hear the wait time for a doctor is Mass. is 5-6 weeks.

Rick Perry - supported mandatory immunizations of Texas girls against the STD HPV as his chief of staff was a former Merck lobbyist. Stood idly by the last decade and allowed the SPP progress in Texas as North American Union plans progressed under the Bush administration. That's why they won't do anything about illegal immigration, because the insiders are planning to make us one big happy region devoid of sovereignty. This guy is a "conservative" my behind.

Herman Cain - I've said enough about him here and here. This guy is all about the fifth plank of the Communist manifesto - commercialization of credit in the hand of the state, in short the Fed.

Tim Pawlenty - Mr. Milquetoast RINO. Do you think this man will take on the Fed and the international banksters that have taken over our country? Check out the nicely done video, Who the Hell is Tim Pawlenty by the Humble Libertarian. T-Paw would like to see drivers charged for every mile they drive, which, of course would require some time of surveillance. Just raise the gas tax and don't track us, bro! A guy who wants to track every mile you drive is not a proponent of liberty, people.
“We realize that in the future, cars aren’t going to be powered by fuel, probably,” said Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who signed into law $5 million for the current biennium to study the mileage tax.
Sarah Palin - I'm still waiting for the Facebook post of her denouncing TSA groping, a practice that was unknown to those living in the tyrannies of the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, or Communist China. Will she speak to the problem of currency devaluation? - still waiting for that Facebook post as well.

Michelle Bachmann - voted for TARP and to extend the Patriot Act. As a homeschooler, the fourth amendment is really big deal for me. If she is too dense to see where this Patriot Act stuff is headed, then she doesn't need more power.  They're not going after the Muslims, ya'll, it ought to be pretty obvious by now that we are the targets. But she was misled on TARP one person told me, well my congressman wasn't and if she's that far behind the curve, she better study awhile before going for the big job.

Jon Huntsman - another Mormon, really? If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book(Rev. 22:18) If you don't get that, how do you get the Constitution. Did the angel Moroni give you the new scrying stones to help you find the new amendments? Geez.. My religious prejudice aside, the fact that he is a former ambassador to China tells me he is CFR, you can look him up in the membership list yourself. That means even if he is oblivious to the push for world government/standardization/ or whatever you want to call it, he will be pressured to tow their line.

Gary Johnson - I can go with him. He actually has a track record of reducing government unlike the rest on this list. His rhetoric and deeds match up and I can tell you he won't get invited to a CFR luncheon.

Ron Paul - the only candidate approved by President Reagan
In the 2008 election, Ron Paul got more individual campaign contributions from our servicemen than any other candidate, I remember the "mainstream" conservative media playing it down. What does that tell you? That our soldiers know the score, and you can too if you check out my X-file page for lots of level 3 goodies proving that there are treasonous forces at work in the upper levels of our government and have been for a long, long time. Larry McDonald, who was on the tip of the spear battling these globalists elites, a battle that may well have cost him his life, said that it was when he was in the service that he noticed that things just didn't add up and he began to investigate US foreign policy.

Their main tool is the money supply, and that's why I'm concerned because if the dollar becomes worthless, how are you going to feed your kids?  These traitors try to get us divided on individual issues and use psychology via the dialectic process to keep us from becoming united against them. They're throwing everything they've got against Mr. Paul saying he's against Israel, when really he's against all foreign aid, which would give Israel an advantage as we give four times as much to the Arab states around it. We're really, really out of money ya'll and Israel has more than enough weapons to defend herself. They say he doesn't understand the threats of terrorism, when he was the one of the few that predicted it. Soon after 9/11, Rep. Paul advocating using Marque and Reprisal to go after Al Qaeda introducing the Marque and Reprisal Act of 2001 in lieu of going to war with entire nations. And isn't that exactly what we wound up doing in the end? How much blood and money could have been saved had we just done that to begin with? Maybe that's not the point.

Plus, I haven't seen it reported yet where a Muslim groped women and children at an airport, have you? Will the real terrorists please stand up? When and if the dollar crashes, we won't be talking about the defense of marriage act or abortion, we will be hungry and angry. Our Muslim enemies will only sit back and eat their popcorn, that is if they have any. The issues of the past will be irrelevant, the present will be scary, and the future will be bleak.

I choose to support someone who has been consistent and had differentiated himself from RINOS before that acronym even existed.  It's so funny that "mainstream conservative" polls are leaving Ron Paul off of their polls because his wild-eyed supporters keep skewing them. If any of these other candidates could get that kind of support, it'd be front page news and would be hyped extensively. It would seem that our Establishment overlords don't want Ron Paul to be the Republican nominee in a really, really bad way. That makes me think that he's not in their pocket and has their number and is prepared to dial it HARD. Let's pray that God assigns Andrew Jackson's guardian angels to work Dr. Paul's security detail.

My reasoning is based on what is found in my X-files section, which is my own personal effort to collect Level 3 sources or the works of those who have codified their work from level 3 sources complete with footnotes that may be verified. Remember:

The battle for American independence can only be won with facts.

To eliminate freedom, one must first eliminate widespread knowledge of the truth.

Feds against Texas - Let's all Hope Texas Wins

HB 1937 passed unanimously in the Texas House and was fixing to go to the Senate when US attorney general John Murphy threatened to use the TSA to stop flights in and out of Texas:

“If HR [sic] 1937 were enacted, the federal government would likely seek an emergency stay of the statute,” Murphy wrote. “Unless or until such a stay were granted, TSA would likely be required to cancel any flight or series of flights for which it could not ensure the safety of passengers and crew.”
“We urge that you consider the ramifications of this bill before casting your vote,” Murphy added.
Pure unadulterated thuggery. This bill would have made the TSA groping a felony and put a stop to stripping Americans of their dignity. Apparently, that's what our Federal Government wants. Don't tell me its to keep me safe. If the Feds gave a flying frak about keeping us safe, they would bring our troops home and reposition them along our border, where thousands of people have actually been slain. Plus, every domestic terrorist case since 9/11 has had the FBI so heavily involved in setting it up, it's hard to say that these cases were part of a larger "Muslim" conspiracy. I know what the Koran says, but I've read some scarier writings: the minutes of the Rockefeller Foundation, the Georgia Guidestones, the findings of the Reece Committee, etc. The people that run our federal government at the top adhere to this godless religion that worships social darwinism and "might makes right".

Representive David Simpson is the bill's sponsor and said on the floor of the Texas house:
"Gentlemen, we find ourselves at such a watershed moment today. The federal government is attempting to deprive the citizens of Texas of their constitutional rights under the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution and Article 1, Section 9, of the Texas Constitution. If we do not stand up for our citizens in the face of this deprivation of their personal rights and dignity, who will?”
 Either Texas backs off and continues to let government employees fondle innocent women, children and men as a condition of travel,” the staff wrote, “or the TSA [Transportation Safety Administration] has the authority to cancel flights or series of flights.”

“… 97 percent of people who go though the nation’s airports do not go through these offensive searches. And yet, a United States Attorney warns that flights to Texas could be shut down because TSA would not be able to ensure the safety of passengers and crew if agents could not touch genitals. Someone must make a stand against the atrocities of our government agents …”
The Federal Government is citing the supremacy clause as their justification for this and will use that clause to justify pretty much everything else they want to do to you. They are Supreme -don't you mundanes get that? The Corps is mother the Corps is father. 

Send Rep. Simpson an encouraging word here.

Encourage similar bills to pass in your state. Let's call their bluff and see the planes stop flying.

Update: Senate caves in to federal pressure. It was going to be a unanimous vote until the AG sent that menacing letter. 21 votes were needed and 10 were still there. I want the names of the 11 cowardly bootlicking goosesteppers that have just screwed us all over. That is all for now, good night!

Herman Cain - Central Bankster?

 I wrote a post a little while back digging into the past of Mr. Cain, a man who's radio program I do enjoy. Some have been questioning what is the big deal about him sitting on the boards of these corporations. Well, as someone who has been an officer in my church's corporation, I'm not saying that that in itself is a bad thing.

The only thing I've heard is that he was CEO of Godfathers Pizza; if I had not done my own research I never would have known that he was chairman of a regional Federal Reserve Bank. If you are not aware of the perils of the Fed, read/watch the Creature from Jekyll Island or check out The American Dream Cartoon. As we have been exploring the interlock between large corporations and the federal government on this blog, his being on the board of large corporations, such as Whirlpool do interest me.

I've learned in blogging that if someone says it better, then quote them. Today, Vox Day has the essential Herman Cain piece that will make everyone think twice. Vox gives us the ultimate reason why Herman Cain is not a good conservative candidate:

2) He is not even close to being a genuine conservative on the single most important issue presently facing the nation. Indeed, both his economic philosophy and his employment record are quite literally Communist. In the fifth of the "10 Planks" of the Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx demanded "Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly." In the United States, credit has been centralized in an exclusive government monopoly granted to the Federal Reserve; Mr. Cain was the deputy chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City from 1992-1994 and the chairman from 1995-1996.

Now, despite his five-year career as an elite bankster, Cain cannot be seriously regarded as one culpable for the massive credit booms and the various financial crises that were their inevitable consequences. Unlike Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke, Cain was not at the Federal Reserve proper or its flagship New York bank; it is also worth noting that his two terms of office at the bank preceded the periods of frantic money pumping that took place in 1998 and 2001 and launched the tech and housing bubbles. However, on the Neil Boortz show, his answer with regard to a prospective congressional audit of the Federal Reserve missed the point so completely that it leaves the informed observer wondering if the man is deeply disingenuous or astonishingly clueless:
"Some people say we ought to audit the Federal Reserve. Here's what I do know. The Federal Reserve already has so many internal audits it's ridiculous. I don't know why people think we're going to learn this great amount of information from the Federal Reserve. … Here's the advice I give to people who think we ought to audit the Federal Reserve. Call them up and ask them if you can have one of their PR people explain to you how the Federal Reserve operates. I think a lot of people are calling for the audit of the Federal Reserve because they don't know enough about it! There's no hidden secrets going on the Federal Reserve to my knowledge. We've got 12 Federal Reserve banks, find out which district you're in, call them up and go from there! We don't need to waste money with another commission or an audit. It's not necessary. Because, folks, we've got a lot of other problems we need to worry about."
 This is untrue. There is no bigger or more central problem facing America than the one posed by its current financial system.
So we don't need an audit of the entity that controls our money supply because it audits itself. It's a like a self-cleaning oven - don't worry about a thing. Don't pay attention to the fact that our currency has been devalued by 98% since 1913. Our enemies could only hope to do that much damage to us. One might conclude that the Fed is our enemy. Color me unimpressed with Mr. Cain's answer to the most serious question facing us all - economic collapse. I hear conservatives say that Mr. Cain will really rock the Establishment. Folks, if he worked for the Fed and is still towing their pathetic line like a Soviet apparatchik, Mr. Cain IS the Establishment. That response is something out of Baghdad Bob's script-wizard, everything is fine - nothing to see here - move along and bask in my down-home "fat and sassy" speeches.

Herman Cain was confronted on his enthusiastic 2008 support of the TARP bailouts. Mr. Cain says he was taken out of context, but if you read the whole thing, there really is no other way you can take it, except that central banking is the best thing since sliced bread, which really isn't that great either!
Here's the confrontation, you be the judge:

It reminds me of that scene in Ghostbusters - Ray, when someone asks you if you're a god, you say YES!

Herman, when someone asks if you support the Fed sending our money to foreign banks like Libya and China, you say NO! Mr. Cain seemed more than a little defensive there. If you've changed your mind about TARP, then do it with confidence and a smile, not saying "ok?!" in a defensive manner. That's my political advice for you because in the conservative circles, thanks to Glenn Beck and others, there is a Level 2 awareness of the Fed and if you don't address this issue head-on, it is going to bite you in the behind big time when this gets out. Most conservatives are unaware of Mr. Cain's Fed and bailout loving positions of the very recent past. He'd better get a better game plan of explaining that than saying you don't have time to answer the question and running away. That kind of thing might just go viral.

You Mean the IMF Doesn't Stand for Impossible Mission Force?

Most people have no clue what the IMF is or what it is about. I sure didn't just a couple of years ago. If you would have said IMF, I would have thought Mission Impossible, not central banking.

The official line is that it helps stabilize the exchange rates among the nations. It was borne out of the UN and the chaos that followed WW2, so you know it's apart of this whole system of government intervention that like Matt Tiabbi's vampire squid is sucking the life out of the people of the world in general. Apparantly, the Special Drawing Rights (derivatives) thing goes through them, they sold off a buttload of gold in 2008, and basically is at or toward the top of the central banking food chain. That's what I've been able to figure out so far.

I'm not even going to comment on the scandal surrounding the president, as those playing with our money want to keep us distracted from the main things. As always, a picture is worth a thousand words:

Your mission should you choose to accept it, is to inform everyone you know about the dangers of central banking and planning. Else our country will self-destruct and we will disavow any foreknowledge. Good luck, citizen.

Layers of the Onion

I was inspired by this lecture I found over at Trestin Meacham via Classic Liberal. It is Antony Sutton laying it out how the monopolists used the ideology of socialism to captivate the markets of the east.

Here are the best lines:

The battle for American independence can only be won with facts.

To eliminate freedom, one must first eliminate widespread knowledge of the truth.

According to Sutton, there are three levels of history knowledge. Remember that history repeats itself and if you don't know the past correctly, how can you predict the future?

Level 1

Level 1 is the Establishment version history. As I've highlighted on this site, all of the textbook publishers in this country are run by just a few companies, all of which are somehow interlocked with the CFR and other Establishment organizations. For instance, just ask anyone why the United States went into WW1. Those under the age of 40 will just look at you confused, trying to place when WW1 was. Those who are older might be able to recall that the Lusitania was sunk. But almost no one will be able to tell you the fishy business associated with the sinking and WW1 in general. The fact that her escort ships were no where to be found at the time of the attack, the fact that the British had broken German code and should have known where every U-boat was. Not to mention the immense amount of money that was made in WW1 and documented by the most decorated marine in history, General Smedley Butler who famously said War is a Racket. Ok, WW1 is just one example, but when you get into the old newspaper articles and government files, you begin to realize that what you were taught in your state-approved textbook and on the History channel doesn't reflect with what  really happened.

Level 2

This next level doesn't get to the real nitty gritty, but is based on the government info that you have been "permitted" to view. Keep in mind that our government has 16 million classified government documents that you drones are not worthy to read from last year alone. A lot of the JFK conspiracy theories fall into this category says Dr. Sutton. You know that there is something that is not quite right about the official line, but you can't put your finger on it. I would say that a growing number of people are in this category.

Level 3

This level operates on base documentary evidence such as internal government documents, transcripts of congressional committees, and military records. The problem is that many of these are classified for 75 years. Don't you think that's a little excessive? Who's going to get us now? And many of the documents that are released will have all the names and pertinent info blacked out. Like Angolan Task Force chief and CIA agent John Stockwell said, if the Soviet Union were to disappear, new enemies would be created to justify this massive bureaucracy. I've been focusing my attention on this 1910-1920 time frame because as you move up in history, it gets a lot more complicated. 

These collectivists (I won't say liberals or "conservatives" because they have representatives in both camps) have a nightmare of a majority or large enough minority figuring out their con. They hide Level 3 truth under Level 2 truth. They have those "who really killed JFK" specials on the History channel and the like to keep the curious entertained and hope that it satisfies their suspicions.Their first hope is that you don't ever go past Level 1 and will dutifully follow every fad you are fed in your public media and education consumption. The public schools are designed so that the masses will have the attention span of a gnat and those collectivists bank on your stupidity.

This is a challenge to all people everywhere to become Level 3 aware. We have to make the "true truth" widespread in order for our freedom to remain secure. Talking to people about Level 3 history will get you called names like conspiracy theorist. But anyone who uses that term as a pejorative hasn't picked up a history book or read past the first book of the Bible, because they're full of conspiracies. Can you imagine going to people of Shechem and telling them that Jacob's sons were planning (conspiring) to kill them after their circumcision? Would you be mocked? Take any event of history in the planning stages and pretend you tried to tell someone about and you would be branded a conspiracy theorist. Let's try being people who theorize what the true reality of our past and present situation actually is. Our government is shrouded in secrecy and has a track record for repeated lying, and not believing what they say makes you smart, not a nut.

Check out my X-files section to get started on your quest, intrepid Level 3 adventurer!

Herman Cain, Really?

For the record, I really do enjoy listening to Herman Cain's radio program. I agree with most things he says, I suppose, but am really doing some serious thinking about who to support for president this next time around. Not to say that I think that one man could save us from all this mess, but you can't begin to fix a problem until you properly understand it.

Last time around, I was a Fredhead, being from Tennessee and all. Since then, I've taken Herman Cain's advice and become informed. Oh yeah, I'm really, really informed now. I'm so informed, I've almost freaked myself completely out. I haven't become a conspiracy theorist, I've become a reality theorist. The reality of it is, Mr. Fred Thompson was and is a CFR member. BTW, he truly gets pwned in this video arguing that lawyers should get even more money for punitive damages, while having a column he had written while campaigning arguing the other side.  For those of you who aren't familiar with the Council on Foreign Relations, or how gigantic corporations have used non profit foundations to control our country, please investigate that for a clearer understanding of what our national situation actually is.

I hate to burst people's bubbles, but I must publish the Herman Cain map: (View in separate window so you can actually read it)

go to to make your own map as the usual links won't load today

Now, I'm not trying to say Herman is a a bad guy or anything. Even though he worked for our dark masters in the Fed, doesn't mean he's a horrible person. The machine, system, or whatever you want to call it is unparalleled in its use of compartmentalization - keeping the right hand from knowing what the left is doing. The vast majority of people working inside the military-industrial-banking-government complex don't even realize that they're part of "the system". But a system there most certainly is when you zoom out a couple of levels and look at the interlocks between government, corporation, and nonprofits.

“None are so hopelessly enslaved as those who falsely believe they are free.”  -Goethe

I guess I'd be more impressed with Mr. Cain if he had started Godfather's Pizza himself and raised it up to a national chain competing with the big boys. I mean, that would really be impressive. It's still great that he managed to turn it around, after being given control of it by a large multinational corporation, uh, yeah... Does anyone else find it odd that no one has mentioned that Herman sits or has sat on the board of directors of no less than five corporations that have approximately 120,000 employees? It kind of goes against the "aw shucks" small business image that the conservative media is trying to portray.

The biggest problem I have with Candidate Cain is enthusiastic support of TARP. From his October 2008 column telling us not to freak out about government ownership of banks, he tells us to calm down and shush up.

Unprecedented problems require unprecedented solutions. The actions by the Treasury are a win-win for the taxpayer. But the mainstream media does not get brownie points for reporting win-win solutions for the taxpayers. Their focus is doom and gloom.

These actions by the Treasury, the Federal Reserve Bank and the actions by the Federal Depositors Insurance Corporation (FDIC) are all intended to help solve an unprecedented financial crisis. Unlike steps taken prior to and during the Great Depression, these actions have a high probability of success.
I would repost it in full for the purposes of full dissection, but there are big "do not copy, this is copyrighted" disclaimers all over it. Given the current climate, I guess I better not go for it. But I will say as someone who's been trying to figure this stuff out, it is a very condescending column to anyone who is aware that the Federal Reserve gave most of the bailout money to foreign banks. Collapse of our currency is something that he doesn't want you to focus on. Continuing the race card narrative seems to be more important that mentioning awful things like the collapse of the US dollar. That's "doom and gloom" that shall not be spoken of, let's talk about melanin levels of the skin and "liberals" while the Fed pumps what little wealth we have left overseas..Don't worry, though, we'll have the fair tax that will maintain current spending levels for the federal government. Isn't that special? That's assuming of course, our dollar hasn't collapsed and we're being pushed into a cashless global currency

It's all pretty incredible for a guy who's trying to ride the Tea Party to the Republican nomination. The Tea Party is the group that took the streets with anti-bailout signs, right? Just checking to see if I'm in the same dimension. I'm just doing a reality check here, seriously, are all these conservative bloggers actually going gaga over a former Fed official whose on the record with a demeaning column telling us that daddy Fed has everything under control. Is this some kind of a sick joke?

I think most people who have taken Herman's advice and gotten informed have learned a lot about his former employer, the Federal Reserve, and this column he wrote in 2008 is going to bite him in the butt big time. But it's Obama's fault. Good grief, ya'll this Federal Reserve/IRS con game has been going on since 1913, and like every con, it eventually has to come to an end. Those who are raking in this dough are trying like mad to squeeze the last bits of change out before they pull the plug. Who are "they"? I would surmise they are those who are actually making the money in this economy.

So who should get your presidential support? Might I suggest someone who is actually wise to the whole banking cartel scheme? Even if a candidate is truly in his heart a patriotic American, that doesn't do much when we're all up against a generational con game designed to suck us dry. The Oval Office is not the place to discover it and get a game plan. We're really and truthfully running out of time, and may have already. I leave it to you to find this candidate, but given the Fed influence, the fact that he sits on the board of several corporations, and wrote in favor of the bailouts (when the R was in charge) that person might not be Herman Cain. Like he says, stupid people are really ruining this country:

Happy Mother's Day!

Gotta do a Mother's Day post with this blog entitled, The republican Mother and all.

 12For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees.
 13As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.
--Isaiah 66:12-13

This is one of my favorite "mother" scriptures that illustrates not only God's relationship toward Israel, but the ideal behavior of a mother and child. Notice that the mother is always present, holding the child at her side, bouncing him on her knee, and the nursing babe being satisfied.

I'll never forget being at a local park back when I just had two kids. A little girl about 9 years old had ridden her bike from some condos next door and was attracted to my baby girl.  She asked where my older girl went to school, and I said that she went to preschool a couple of days a week. Then she asked, but where does she go after that. I replied, "she goes home with me." The little girl looked down and said 'oh', real sad. It really hurt me that going home with your mom or having a mother available to you wouldn't have entered her mind. You have to be going to somewhere all of the time.

God's plan for raising mentally healthy persons is for someone to be there with them, pretty much all the time.  (Deut 6.) For those of you who think you would be nuts if you were around your kids all the time, that's the first sign you're going off the tracks. You see, a properly domesticated child is not a butt-wipe to be around. In fact, the older my kids get, the more helpful and mature they become. They're modeling their behavior after me, not a bunch of kids in a "lord of the flies" situation. We have arguments and all that fun stuff, but I can say that I can take all my kids to a restaurant by myself and not be embarrassed. 

So when people ask me "what I do", I reply, I help preserve Western Civilization by raising children who can write cursive, know their multiplication tables, can diagram a sentence, question authority, fear God, are immune to peer pressure, etc. Not necessarily in that order, but you know what I mean. I could probably be making a lot of money sitting in some office somewhere, but in the long run, having children who have discernment and wisdom of the Word will pay far more than any salary you can imagine.
