In light of my thoughts on Public school I wish to share this info.. Amazing ideas coming from all directions! GO Homeschoolers!

Homestead Honey

For the past few months, I’ve been part of a group of parents that are working together to create a Waldorf-inspired homeschool cooperative.  This year we have been meeting once a week and taking turns leading circles, songs, stories and crafts for nine children, ages 2-5.  Next year, our numbers will grow a bit, and we began to wonder how we could best meet the needs of our children as they enter kindergarten.  While we’re all committed to homeschooling, we also wanted to create regular, structured opportunities for the kids to learn and create together.

After much visioning and communication, we have decided to hire a part-time Waldorf teacher for next school year.  We are so excited to move forward with this plan, and have created a job description that we’d love to circulate far and wide. It’s a unique position in that we’re able to offer room, board, and…

HI Savages!

I am gonna be in and out of the “dashboard” As we are downsizing housing for several years to save the moolah to get our homestead in the Northwest purchased! So we are moving to a very teenie house or apt with cheap rent, buy local foods and take the bus or walk!

So we are packin’ and yard salein’, etc. so I will be writing when I can, and sharing some great stuff in the meantime!

Today I want to share about Kids: We homeschooled and there are many reasons why. the following are articles, vids  and blogs that speak in detail to why we did…

Teacher’s resignation letter: ‘My profession … no longer exists’

Facebook posting on drugging of our children, including great articles and vids( Disclaimer>> CCHR has fantastic and factual vids, but remember they are a Scientology arm! )

Hi Savages!

So, today, I was setting out a reply to a post of the juvenile, but all important Facebook and I realized I have a bit of example of  how the nanny state fucks with us….

Funny thing is, even While I consider myself a very awake human, I still surprise myself when I have a sudden realization of the underpinnings of BIG BRO and how they eek their tendrils into every facet of our lives.

I read many posts about the amendments, guns, free speech zones , etc.etc.etc. ( remember one of my few policies..lol.. say it like Yul Brenner….lol)

I bud of mine on the FB, I will call KIK, ( K_____ the INFO KING!), sends out info all day long on the feed and I look up a bunch of it, already know a bunch, ( but need the reminder!!!),and learn new and disturbing stuffs. Today he put up a meme with info about how kids in the US are drugged in the schools and the FEDS give $$$ to the schools for this.

On top of this, I had just replied to some postings about Obamacare, via his feed days earlier. I realized I have dealt with FEDERAL invasive crap for along time and have not really NOTICED it as Fascism. CRAZY!

Now, it is not because I am special, or “targeted” or anything like that! It is because NON OF US can go about our daily lives without being subject to gov’t micro management! The gov’t has gotten so out of control, that we can’t even breath in and out without being made to feel guilty. Yet, HUGE corps. go NUTS anyway they want.

So, I wish to share  3 of my examples:

Obamacare: My Husband was born with Spinal Bifida and Hydrocephaly. He was born in the mid 60’s. Without the advances in medical science and the Medicaid program he would not be alive today and I am grateful to these advances. He is a incredible father to 2 daughters and 5 stepsons that see him as their real dad. He is brilliant and I am sure 4x smarter than I could ever be.

He has been dependent on Federal Medical care for all his life. He has a wheel chair and multiple surgeries for bones and body issues and needs ostomy appliances. I am perfectly fine with my taxes going to pay for medicaid for folks with disabilities. he has tried working here and there, and he is not able. He works at home with me and helped homeschool 7 kids.. HE WORKED!!!!

Obamacare campaigning has made a big noise about the uninsured and how we will be helping elderly and poor and disabled that have no ins. Really? Then, why, as Obamacare has been implemented in my state has my husband LOST care? We cannot get NEEDED supplies because the state cannot afford to buy what he needs, and I have to put out money we do not have to make sure he is healthy and sanitary. Now, Some may say to me..( why shouldn’t you pay for stuff.. We do!). Hell, I pay for a lot of things NOT covered by Medicaid. My hunny has a very special diet he HAS to eat. It adds quite a bit to our bill. I COULD go get a diagnosis and ask for massive amounts of Foodshare to help with it.. I don’t. We could go into the clinic every time he has a sniffle, ( which is what they want us to do) and get an antibiotic or other drug. He takes none. He knows the cost to the public of his needs and we try to only apply for the stuff we just cannot afford.

Ok, so the issue:

He HAS to have something called Urostomy appliances. There are a disposable “bladder” that comes in two pieces. Each piece is about 8 bucks.. That’s right, 16 dollars a change. He SHOULD be changing every 2 days or so. He is very active, sometimes he has to use one a day, depending. The Company that makes them says the appliance should last 3 to 4 days, and they do, at times.. The average use a month is 12 to 15 sets. We used to get 20 sets and the price was about 12$ a setup, BEFORE Obamacare. So, the setup goes up 4$ and the new policies say can now only get SIX. YEP! SO, after the SIX are used up, WHAT do they expect him to do? Reuse them. He is not considered a full enough human to get PROPER urination supplies to stay healthy. WHY? I don’t know why for sure, but I DO KNOW that he has outlived what his average of life was by about 30 years. Every day he gets up is a gift from the GODS. He is not COST effective! He COULD drop over in an hour. NOW every surgery, supply, anything goes thru a PRIVATE HMO panel that DECIDES if his life is COST EFFECTIVE!! THAT is our new affordable healthcare in only PARTIAL action!

Now, Am I blaming the Democratic Administration? Don’t get all flustered.. and all dualistic.. If we go back about 15 years I have a great example of FEDERAL micromgt in our school system.

I homeschooled my monkeys. In the process of educating the magnificent 7 , ( or the Good and the Bad and the Ugly, depending on  the day!!), I was talked into returning some of them to public school in different guises for small period of times. One of these was over standardized testing in the state of Minnesota. In that state we were REQUIRED to test yearly and my 5 year old SUPPOSEDLY tested as borderline simple. I was horrified! I had been reading to her form birth and she could read books for 8 year olds at home. So I was told that I needed to put them all in school or I would be “investigated”.

I enrolled them. Not a week later I get a call about my 5 year old, my 12 year old and my 16 year old. They are hyper, out of control, will not shut up, ask too many questions, are giving the neighbors the answers to lessons.. yada yada yada.

I go to a meeting. I am told they are ADHD. I asked who diagnosed them.. The school Admin says THEY did, but they still need a Dr. Diagnosis. I am told to take them to the doctor. Only one teacher out of 6 sitting in the room thinks something else is going on. I take them. The dr says, “well, I think they are all fine.” I am ordered to take them to another dr.That one says my 12 year old is ADHD. I am ordered to another dr. same thing.

Finally, the Kindergarten Teacher tests my 5 year old over again with some tests she heard about. My 5 year old tests out to 1.6 grade. This means she SHOULD be 2/3 the way thru 1st grade classes. She is bored out of her mind and is teaching other kids stuff for something to do. The K teacher speaks with me about her critical thinking skills being amazing but the school has no place for “Bright kids”.  !!??!! THEN I find out my 16 year old tests to sophomore college! In the meantime we end up with a bomb threat on the High and Jr high and my 15v year old has to sneak to a phone because they will not allow the kids to call their parents to go home.

Well, I went a little NUTS!!!! I am surprised I was not arrested in the halls of the school. I picked up the kids AND a good friend’s son and went home. I went back to the school the next day and filled out the paper work to withdraw my kids. I was accosted by several teachers, one that screamed at me for causing the district to lose important federal aid. ( I was shocked by this comment.. WHAT fed aid???)

I find out later that…

ONE) My 12 year old was labelled has emotionally unstable in a fast track document sent out thru the courts and out there for ANY school or employer or cop to see for several years until the documents were finally reregistered as private.

TWO) That the Federal Gov’t is paying schools an extra 400$ to 3000$ a month, a CHILD, ( IN 1999.. who knows how high NOW), if diagnosed with ADHD or OTHER emotional or mental issues.

And 15 years later. My son that was “labelled”… He could not get employment, schooling.. was harassed by the cops and is now in prison. A prison run by a private corp contracted originally by the Federal Gov’t. That is my third example.
