A Once in a LIfetime Candidate

Gerald Ford said: "A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have."

America is a "land of the free and a home of the brave right?" Well it used to be, but the government has been gradually taking away our rights. It has its hand in every pie you can think of: medicine & healthcare, education, what we eat, what we say, how we think, what we believe. We are on the verge of becoming a socialist nation. Its time to make a change.

Maybe it is because I have never taken and interest in politics before or maybe it is because such a find in the Republican party is rare, but we have a gem of a candidate in the Republican party named Ron Paul. He is a firm supporter of the Constitution. He is for less government involvement in our lives, for private property & property rights, for lower taxes and less government spending... etc. He is a man of convictions and has proven himself so as a Texas Congressman. The media hates him and hardly mentions him unless it is in a negative way, but his popularity is growing.

Check him out for yourself at these links:

If you give a homeschool mom a cookie

Someone posted this on WellTellMe and thought I would post it here for you ladies.

If you give a Homeschooling Mom a Cookie
by Sher Birmingham

If you give a Homeschooling Mom a cookie, she'll want the recipe.

She will plan a complete unit study on the History of Cookies.

The family will take fieldtrip to a farm and see where we get eggs, milk and grain.

At home they will make butter out of milk.

The children will want to start grinding their own grain.

Mom will purchase a Bosch Universal Kitchen System.

She will remember she will need a new list of cookbooks.

So she will order An Introduction To Whole Grain Baking w/ CD, Desserts, The Cooking With Children CD, and Lunches & Snacks Cookbook by Sue Gregg, also Whole Foods for Kids to Cook.

Mom orders a 100 lb bag of wheat berries.

Now she will grind her own wheat grain into flour.

The children remember the farm field trip and knowing they can't possibly get a cow they beg for a few chickens.

So to a trip to the library to research how to build a chicken coop and to how to care for chickens.

On the way out the door Mom sees the book, Chicken Tractor, by Andy Lee & Pat Foreman.

They stop by the Feed and Seed to pick up materials and ask where to purchase the chicks.

There the clerk tells them about eggs that can be incubated.

He sells them a book on hatching eggs, eggs, and incubator.

At home Mom and the younger children set up the incubator while Dad and the older children build the chicken tractor.

Back to the library to pick up gardening books and more books on chickens.

The oldest daughter now starts a business grinding flour for the her friend's families.

While her younger sisters are selling homemade cookies to their neighbors.

The boys have started building a new chicken tractor because they want more eggs for breakfast.

That cookie that started this all the homeschooling mom's three year old ate it.
