Top Five Reasons NOT to Send Your Kids Back to Public School
By Pastor Voddie Baucham

     Anyone who has kept up with my blog knows that I am no fan of government education.  I have made it a point to carry The Continuing Collapse on a regular basis, and I try to make biblical, philosophical and theological arguments in favor of Christian education as often as possible.  However, I recognize the obstacles those of us on my side of the street face.  As many as eighty-five to ninety percent of professing Christians send their children to the government for their education.  That is simply an astonishing figure considering the fact that the Christian community fought mandatory government education tooth-and-nail for its first fifty years of existence.  Since then we have gone from fighting against government schools to fighting for them and implying that those who fight against them are fundamentalists, anti-intellectuals, and racists.
    In the meantime, our schools grow progressively worse.  As fall approaches, I want to appeal to those of you with children in government schools.  Please don’t send them back!  I beg you to consider what you are doing.  As Dave Black has written: “No academic skepticism, no secularist authors, no blatant materialism can so undermine the spiritual life of the country like the completely secularized training of the child under the authority of the state... Bible-based education is mandatory for Christian parents. If we think we can keep our children in a secular school system and escape the dumbed-down, amoral, and immoral results of secular humanism in schools, we are sorely mistaken (See: http://daveblackonline.com/our.htm).”
    With that, here are the top five reasons not to send your kids back to government/public school.

Cap and Trade Will Devastate the Nation
Commentary by Jim Day

    While the main stream media focused our attention on the death of Michael Jackson and other non-critical matters, little (if any) news coverage was given to the passage of a horrible piece of legislation. A piece of legislation which will not only add to the destruction of our economy, raise taxes to the point of forcing people to choose between eating or freezing during the winter, dramatically add to our nation’s unemployment rate, and all but destroy what’s left of America’s sovereignty. I’m talking about H.R. 2454, the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 which was voted upon and passed in the U.S. House of Representatives on June 26, 2009 by a vote of 219-212. (To see how Missouri and Illinois Congressmen voted go to the end of this article.)
    H.R. 2454 was introduced on May 15, 2009 by Congressman Henry Waxman (D) CA.  This legislation (which is now in the Senate for consideration) will create a “cap and trade” system that will require Americans to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from 2005 levels by 17 percent by 2020 and 83 percent by 2050. The proposal seeks to reduce carbon emissions by limiting the allowable amount of CO2 emissions with the plan to set a progressively lower ceiling on allowable emissions and progressively increase penalties for exceeding that limit.
    This mandate will effectively tax energy producers for their carbon emissions through higher costs, which even proponents of cap and trade admit will inevitably be passed onto consumers. Furthermore, other provisions in the bill, such as a new federal renewable electricity standard will cause electricity prices to go through the roof.
    On June 5, 2009, a report issued by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office confirmed that this legislation will hurt middle-class families across America and could cost American families up to $3,100 per year, send countless American jobs oversees to China and India at a time when U.S. workers can afford it least, and place an enormous burden on everyone when they use energy or when they buy a product manufactured in the United States. It is estimated that H.R. 2454 will raise gasoline prices by 58%, natural gas prices by 55%, home heating oil by 56% and electricity prices by 90% by the year 2035.
