NC: School Official Demands “Home School License”



When a family in Lenoir (Caldwell County) decided to withdraw their son from public school last month in order to teach him at home, an official at the middle school refused to remove him from the public school rolls until the mother first produced a “home school license.” This meant that the child would be considered truant by the public school while being taught in a homeschool setting.

After the parents contacted Home School Legal Defense Association for assistance, Senior Counsel Dewitt Black wrote the school official and advised her that the family was in full compliance with state law, having filed a notice of intent to operate a homeschool with the North Carolina Division of Non-Public Education. Black also informed the school official that there was no such thing as a “home school license” and, further, that there was no requirement under state law that parents operating a homeschool provide the school district with any documentation relating to its operation. Finally, Black’s letter stated that since the parents had already made a good faith effort to follow the school’s normal withdrawal procedure, they were under no obligation to take any other action in this regard.

This is an example of how threatening legal problems can arise even in a state with a good homeschool law.

Wow is this good.:)


"When the second amendment was written, no one had even dreamed of the modern guns we have today. The second applies to muskets, as those were what America had when the amendment was written. It wouldn't have been an amendment if the founding fathers had imagined machine guns killing our children and other high technology weapons."

Thanks for your email. But you don't have the right to speak your opinion. You do not have freedom of speech. "What about the first amendment" you may blurt out? Sorry. The founding fathers didn't imagine email, blogs, the internet, TV, radio or any other "high technology" ways that you may wish to express yourself. God-given human rights only applied to the technology level of the 18th century, right?

Keep your putrid stupidity off the internet, please, and do us all a favor and GTFO of this country.

Saudi Offers “Castrated African Slave” for Sale on Facebook


Who says that the Muslim world isn’t modern? Sure they could hold old-fashioned auctions for African slaves. But instead they’re leveraging the power of social media for their slave auctions.
Peace be upon you …
I have a [male] slave I bought from an African country and arranged for his visa and stay till I got him to Saudi [Arabia]
His description:
1 – Black skin. Tall 172 sm. Weight 60 kilos.
2 – Castrated (excellent for working with a family) you can check him with a doctor our yourself if you have experience in the matter.
3 – [His] health is quite undamaged and has no imperfections.
4 – Age 26 years.
5 – Religion muslim and [he is] obedient and will not disobey you except in what displeases God. Please, the matter is very serious and is not a joke.
No it’s not a joke. Saudi Arabia had an estimated 300,000 slaves in 1960. Slavery was then officially abolished, but unofficially continues to exist.

Saudis who travel outside their country sometimes bring their slaves with them, leading to run-ins with the law. One of the ugliest such incidents was the murder of a slave by a Saudi prince in London.
The court had heard that the murder of Abdulaziz was the final act in a “deeply abusive” master-servant relationship in which the prince carried out frequent attacks on his aide “for his own personal gratification”.
Jurors were told that by the early hours of 15 February, Abdulaziz was so worn down and injured – having suffered a “cauliflower” ear and swollen eye from previous assaults – that he let Saud kill him without a fight.
Saud tried to cover up the true nature of his relationship with his servant, claiming they were “friends and equals”, but a porter at the Marylebone hotel where they had stayed said Abdulaziz was treated “like a slave”.
If progressives really cared about racism and sexism, they would take a hard look at the Muslim world. But of course, they don’t.

"Murder By President"

Business Should Be Able to Hire and Fire Whomever They Want and for Whatever Reason They Want



Black, white, gay, straight, Christian, Atheist, male, female, it doesn’t matter; if a private business wants to discriminate against any one or combination of these types, who cares? Who cares? If a private-business owner doesn’t want to hire any female Christians, he should have the right to not hire them for that reason (and I say that as a Christian). If a private-business owner finds out an employee is a gay Atheist, he should have the right to fire him for that reason (assuming he doesn’t like gays or Atheists).

The free market would sort things out. It would be a bad idea to fire someone for his race or sexual preference, etc., because the news will get out that such-and-such business hates [race] and hates [sexual preference], and within a short while, he will notice a shortage of customers. Eventually the business will go belly-up. But if he wants to risk going bankrupt for his discrimination, let him take that risk, and you can take your business elsewhere.

It doesn’t pay to discriminate. It does pay to hire the best for the job, regardless of that person’s personal life and views. If a business has the choice to hire an incompetent white guy or a very competent black lady, you can bet your butt that that business will hire the black lady–unless he doesn’t care about his business. If he doesn’t care about his business, the business will go under soon enough anyway, so just let him, and let’s all relax.

Discrimination in the workplace should be legal, period.

“Oh, I know why you want businesses to discriminate. It’s because if you started a business, you’d refuse to hire anybody who isn’t a white devil!”

No. But here is a list of people I would refuse to hire:
  • Anybody with dreadlocks, piercings, visible tattoos
  •  Practicing Muslims (if they’re “Muslim” the way most of today’s “Jews” are Jewish, however—that is, non-practicing—no problem)
  •  Atheists (I would not absolutely refuse to hire an atheist, but I’d have some reservations and would have to do some hard thinking; atheists have no moral base on which to make their judgments, so I can’t trust that he wouldn’t steal from the register or something else immoral)
  •  Gay people who make a show of being gay; that is, the gays who act like caricatures of females from another planet. This category also includes public cross-dressers and guys who wear makeup
  •  Blacks who slur their speech and otherwise don’t use acceptable grammar
  •  Whites who slur their speech and otherwise don’t use acceptable grammar
  •  Smokers (I don’t want you taking 10-minute smoke breaks every 30 minutes)
  •  Illegal aliens of any race
  •  Anybody with a thick accent (customers hate not being able to understand store clerks)
  •  Anybody who can’t do the job competently
Anybody else, I’d hire. But that’s just me. Others might refuse to hire Indians because they hate Indians, or refuse to hire redheads, such as me, because they hate redheads. Fine! Who cares? Find a job somewhere else, bring your patronage to another business, stop insisting that everybody has to like you, and stop, for the love of God, stop beseeching the government to enforce friendship!

I'm Pissed: Walter Jones kicked off House committee

Via NC Links and Thinks

 Kicking my Ron Paul Republican Walter Jones out is the final straw for me. It's now Tea Party time win, lose or draw. Screw them all.
"You got all my gold; you got my silver.
All that's left is brass and lead...
You want them?"


U.S. Rep. Walter Jones, a Republican from Farmville, was kicked off the House financial services committee on Monday, according to Roll Call.

Speaker John Boehner initiated the action, targeting what Roll Call labeled "rebellious Republicans."
Roll Call writes:

"The decisions were made by the GOP Steering Committee at a Monday meeting, which reviewed a spreadsheet listing each GOP lawmaker and how often he or she had voted with leadership, three sources said. … All of the lawmakers other than Jones were rebellious right-wingers."

Jones was recently re-elected in the 3rd District, which stretches from Currituck to Onslow County and includes Camp Lejeune. He will start his 10th term in January. He also is a member of the House Committee on Armed Services. A devout Christian, Jones has often chose to vote his conscience over the party line, and has been an outspoken critic of the country's war with Iraq and Afghanistan.

According to a Washington Post database, Jones has voted against Boehner 31 percent of the time, including the House GOP budget plan proposed by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc.

On the finances committee, Jones has championed small businesses. Jones could not immediately be reached for comment.

Time to do it again

A growing number of Tea Party Nation members are calling for the formation of a third political party, no matter the cost...no matter the consequence. We say that while we don't know what we'll get from such a move, we certainly know what we've had over the last two-and-a-half decades.
Even if it means the eventual demise of the GOP, the time for the formation of the Tea Party as a true political party in America has come!
...........This is not strictly a referendum on Barack Obama's presidency. It is a reflection of the serious undercurrent of anger that voters bear due to several factors. Not least among these is the vague, non-committal ways in which the GOP has dealt with numerous serious breaches of law and the Constitution by this administration. By many accounts, the Obama White House is a rogue administration, yet the GOP-controlled House has taken little or no action. So, the disenchantment with government is on two levels.

Many see the Obama Agenda a blatantly socialistic, with a serious disregard for the law. Activities such as the Fast and Furious gun running scandal, the allegedly-bogus birth certificate and Selective Service registration, the shell game surrounding the Benghazi consulate attack, voter fraud, foreign campaign contributions, subterfuge involving Russia, ambiguous support for Israel, Obama's overt support for anarchists, and more fuel what many hope will lead to open and possibly violent revolution. Add to this, the feeling of frustration with the GOP, who has habitually kowtowed and surrendered to the Democrat-controlled Senate, where Harry Reid rules with a razor-thin majority.

The GOP, in the minds of numerous Tea Party Nation members, has abandoned them. They point the history of the last twenty five years. Beginning with the betrayal of the "no new taxes" pledge by George H.W. Bush, conservatives have dealt with a growing sense of frustration with their own party.
Enter the Tea Party!

“Let It Burn” – Conservatives Embracing Radical Left Agenda?

Via southwind


Came across an interesting take on the origins of the now-popular “L.I.B.” acronym that is popping up on so many conservative-leaning forums.  Could the present anger and frustration of conservatives be used against them to help facilitate the progressive American “reset” agenda?  Perhaps…

EXCERPT:  (via Wilderness of Mirrors)

L.I.B (Let it burn) Burn baby Burn

l…So, basically whether you realize it or not, when you are advocating for the L.I.B (Let it burn) you are advocating for the Cloward-Pivens Strategy. The tragic part isn’t that in advocating for L.I.B you are in fact advocating for the Cloward-Pivens Strategy, the tragic part isn’t even that you have been duped into doing exactly what the Marxist’s want you to do. The real tragedy is that most of you haven’t really grasped what Let It burn really means. It means a complete and total collapse of the American economy. It means people literally shooting and killing their friends and neighbors for things like food and gasoline. It means a complete abandonment of the United States Constitution. It means the construction of William “Bill” Ayer’s extermination camps for the 25 million Americans who refuse to accept the new Marxist government.

Let it burn is exactly what the Marxist elite in both parties are trying to accomplish. It is the only way they can ensure the level of lawlessness and civil unrest required to suspend the United States Constitution and replace it with a “Temporary Emergency Powers Act”. Let it burn means a violent bloody civil war which the political elite have been preparing for for decades. You really think that the department of Homeland Defense need 5.1 BILLION rounds of hollow point ammunition to defend American Borders that they refuse to defend?

Do you honestly think for one picosecond that America’s Police forces and other Law Enforcement Agencies will not act to enforce whatever laws are passed by congress? Including a full suspension of the United States Constitution? Are you honestly stupid enough to think that the United States Military will refuse to follow the orders of the President of the United States of America and fire on “Revolting” American citizens? Is there one single person on earth insane enough to think that the President of the United States or congress will allow one single state to secede without a single shot being fired or blood being spilled?

Yes, that is right, Let it burn means, no gasoline, no food, no electricity or heating oil, no consumer goods, no medical supplies or treatments. It means violent lawless civil unrest and inevitably full on Martial law or bloody and violent civil war. It is 100 percent exactly what the political elites are planning for, it is the means by which they achieve their end goal, and that end goal is to dissolve the United states Constitution and replace it with a Marxist Constitution.

Open letter to General Patraeus from a former Navy SEAL



General Patraeus Sir,

We seem to have a President who was willing to let GOOD MEN DIE to hide something else, something very sinister that was happening in Benghazi. 

You KNOW more than what you let on, Sir.Your recent testimony before Congress appeared to throw the Administration under the bus, but lingering questions remain.  Rice is a distraction.  We want to know the truth.


You were the head of the CIA and as such you have the information that the people seek.  Silence will betray your honor, if the full truth is not revealed.

That night we got our rear handed to us by Muslim Brotherhood ideologues who alternately want to kills us or enslave us.  The people YOU call co-workers are either in league with the enemy or have the same objectives.  Four American men and a little piece of America died that night.  They died because someone in this Administration watched the battle rage for 7 hours, yet still gave the order to STAND DOWN as Americans were overrun, tortured and massacred.




Is the Obama Administration actively running guns, Fast & Furious style to Libyan rebels?

Was Ambassador Stephens sent to Libya to coordinate something with Al-Queda?

Was the Obama Administration planning to free high level enemy prisoners?


You are a great General and have served and led your country from the highest levels of power.
We, the American People ask that you to LEAD US NOW.  Come forward with the POWER instilled by your years of service and the HONOR of your Military OATH.  You are an amazing American who has done so much for your country.  Do NOT fail us now, Sir.  STAND for the America you grew up in and fought so hard for all these years.

Life Behind the Iron Curtain: The Ultimate Exercise in Big Government

More than 20 years have passed since the Soviet empire collapsed. Telling its history to new generations here and in the countries of Eastern and Central Europe—generations who have at best dim personal memories of this tragic era in world history—has become an important task.

Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Eastern Europe 1945–1956, Anne Applebaum’s most recent history of the Soviet era, was the topic of a book event this week at The Heritage Foundation. The event was hosted by Lee Edwards, Heritage senior fellow and distinguished president of the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation.

The questions posed by Applebaum boil down to this: “How did the Soviets do it?”

First of all, Applebaum noted, Joseph Stalin had a firm belief in the revolution he was fomenting. Hard as it is to comprehend today, the Soviets, who took over half of Europe after the Yalta agreement, believed they would be successful. Furthermore, the devastation of countries like Poland and Eastern Germany after World War II was so profound that many of their citizens had little else to believe in.

Applebaum identifies three elements of Soviet totalitarian tactics:

1)      Secret police forces were being assembled even before the end of WWII and started identifying potential future enemies to be dispensed with. Anyone with the capacity to organize—from intellectuals to the former resistance—was seen as a threat. Even boy scouts were targets.

2)      They grabbed the media (primarily radio) as a means of mass communication and had some success in propagandizing the devastated populations.

3)      They undermined and attacked every institution of civil society. Even before the nationalization of industry was complete, the parameters of civil society had shrunk. From sports clubs to leisure time to children’s activities, everything became dominated by the state. Catholic youth leaders became an endangered species.

The first German serviceman killed in World War II was killed by the Japanese (China, 1937), the first American serviceman killed was killed by the Russians (Finland 1940), the highest-ranking American killed was Lt. Gen. Lesley McNair, killed by the U.S. Army Air Corps - so much for allies. If you include Pearl Harbor, Rear Admiral Isaac C. Kidd was the highest ranking American killed. He was killed on board the U.S.S. Arizona when the Japanese launched their surprise attack on December 7, 1941.

GOA Alert: Stop Dirty Harry from Ramming Gun Control Down our Throats


The Washington Post headline pretty much says it all: “Obama backs [Harry] Reid’s filibuster reform effort.”

Wonder why?

Why, for instance, would Barack Obama support Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s efforts to change the Senate rules, by brute force, so that it would be easier?

    To implement the UN Arms Trade Treaty to register, ban, and microstamp firearms?
    To reinstate the semi-auto ban?
    Or, to allow Obama to turn anyone into a “prohibited person” and take away their guns, simply by putting them on a secret “watch list”?

To ask such questions is to answer them.  The political Left would love to disarm us all and take away our guns.  To wit, the nation had to endure Bob Costas’ rant over the weekend when he essentially suggested that otherwise law-abiding people shouldn’t have guns.
But, in order to push a progressive agenda through the Senate, Reid is first going to have to use his deceptive “cheat scheme” in order to change the Senate rules to make it easier to pass the Left’s anti-gun initiatives.

By eliminating the filibuster (on the motion to take up legislation), Reid intends to eliminate our most effective way to kill a bad anti-gun bill -- that is, by weakening or eliminating the time-honored filibuster that makes the Senate so different from the House.

But, even more important, if Reid uses the “nuclear option,” as he’s threatening to do, the Senate no longer has any binding rules. The majority can pass any gun legislation it wants, at any time, by brute force, with 51 votes.

So, did your Senator run for re-election by telling you he or she supported the Second Amendment?  Well, this is their chance to prove it -- or to show you that they’re nothing but bald-faced liars.

There will be no gun vote during the 113th Congress that will be more important than the rules votes.

And that is why it’s imperative that ALL GUN GROUPS are fighting this attempt to nuke the filibuster rules.  Please contact any gun organization that you belong to and ask them if they are actively lobbying against Dirty Harry’s efforts to weaken the filibuster … and against any attempt by him to ram gun control down the throats of the American people!

ACTION:  Click here to write your Senators. Insist that they vote against the anti-gun proposals to change the Senate rules.  And don’t forget to urge ANY and ALL pro-gun groups that you are affiliated with to take similar action, as well.

Victory: Senate Rejects Ratification of UN Disabilities Treaty


 Dear HSLDA Members and Friends,

Due to your calls, emails, and office visits, the Senate minority

stood strong and ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of
Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) was rejected by the U.S. Senate a
short time ago.

The CRPD, which would take away American sovereignty and threaten

parental rights, needed two-thirds of the Senate in order to pass.
Although it gained a majority of votes, it failed on a vote of 61-38.
This is a great victory for parental rights, homeschool freedom, and
children with special needs. The U.S. Senate rejected a treaty which
would have allowed UN bureaucrats to decide what is in the "best
interests" of children with disabilities, instead leaving those
decisions with parents and caregivers, which is what existing U.S. law
already requires. Visit http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=16434 to
find out why HSLDA opposed this treaty.

We encourage you to visit
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=16435 to
find out how your senators voted, and please send them an email of
thanks (this information will be posted in a few hours, but we wanted
to let you know this good news right now).

Yet despite this victory, the battle is not over.  This treaty and

other dangerous UN treaties can come up at any time. We must stay
informed and be ready at any moment to take action again.   Without a
Parental Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which would
supersede these treaties, we are susceptible to these constant attacks
against our rights as Americans and the right the raise our children
how we see fit. You can find out more about the Parental Rights
Amendment at http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=16436 .

Thank you again to all of you who took action against this treaty and
