When Public Schools Indoctrinate Instead of Educate our Children

CRT = Can’t Rely on Teachers Our country has done very well for the past 247 years without the Wokeness, CRT, and Transgendreism being introduced into our public education system, colleges, and corporate culture. Since its inception, it has done nothing but cause a huge amount of angst among parents, students, educators, and school board […]

Idahoans deal with Wokeism and Gender Identity in Schools

The Governor’s state of the state speech was full of platitudes with a large part devoted to talking about Idaho’s education system. Unfortunately, Idaho still ranks number 43 in education. In the last year, we have found out how our education system is being run, which was brought out in a current Caldwell school district […]

Losing Our Culture

America was founded by religious Christians who believed the Bible and followed it in their daily lives. We have gradually reached the point where Christianity has no place in public discourse. American culture is gradually being destroyed by left wing socialist ideas, and a foreign invasion that is working against everything that we hold dear. […]

Political Grudges Run Deep

Former Speaker of The House Paul Ryan is not one of my favorite politicians. His one quote that “my faith informs every aspect of my life”, is a statement that I can admire. I have always been interested in “process”. One of my organic chemistry teachers Howard Curry whenever a student asked a question, would go […]

Another Way

So much of history can be captured in a moment. It is unfortunate that so much today is taught with a political narrative in mind. In January, tears came into my eyes during the inauguration of Winsome Sears as Lt. Governor of The Commonwealth of Virginia. A Black woman being administered the oath of office […]

A Spiritual Battle or Political?

Putting on the armor for what is ahead! Have we gone from traditional politics into spiritual warfare that attacks the roots of what has made America the greatest county in the history of the world? When we talk about “demonic influence” and the spiritual attacks we face today in almost every aspect of our life […]

What about HR 2471 and Critical Race Theory

While on the campaign trail, I have been privileged to meet many Idahoans. Inevitably, the topics of education, Critical Race Theory, and gender identity come up. I have pledged to support a School Choice Program. I am opposed to CRT and similar ideologies. Interestingly, some continue to say that CRT and gender identity are not […]

Pedagogy vs Curriculum the Hidden Agenda

I listened on Idaho in Session to the JFAC Budget Committee hearings and the questioning of the Presidents of Idaho’s State Funded Universities. The President of the Idaho State Board of Education Kurt Liebeck admitted that the State Board of Education “hasn’t spent one second talking about Critical Race Theory (CRT)”. I doubt that Mr. […]

Character of a People

My wife and I have spent the last 10 days on Chesapeake Bay. We are staying in a cottage on Mobjack Bay. Before I married my wife, I spent 20 years in Tidewater Virginia during my surgical training and then my service in the Navy. I truly love Virginia. When we got away from the […]

How to Make a Liberal

I have spent some time this week while on Whidbey Island in Washington State watching people. Everybody in Washington State is now wearing masks indoors and outdoors on our beach! I think of my grandparents who fought in WWII and my parents who both served in the Korean War. How do a people allow themselves […]

Long Term Impact of COVID-19

What is the long-term impact of Covid-19 on Idaho? It has increased our dependency on the government. With the pandemic declaration, Idaho received $1B in Covid-19 relief. About 55% of that went to advance Medicare payments to health care providers. They went to businesses as grants or loans. And, it also went to direct aid […]
