Welcome! This is where it all began. I no longer post on this website and some of the content reflects former convictions and understandings. Some of these posts are hard core on issues that I am softer on these days. I deleted many posts that I feared would lead people into legalism, so if you find a missing hyperlink that may be why. These days I write at Covered By His Hand.

Home School Legal Defense Opposes Health Bill 3200

Home School Legal Defense (HSLDA) is opposed to the US House of Representatives Health Care Bill 3200.

Read their "talking points" here. Among other things, this bill allows for government workers to come into our homes and supervise our child rearing. YIKES! Go, call your representative or send him/her and email!

I especially "liked" this part....
Pages 768–769 of H.R. 3200 provide that eligible first-time pregnant woman and families with children less than 2 years old will receive home visitation services “improving maternal or child health…increasing birth intervals between pregnancies, reducing the incidence of child abuse…increasing economic self-sufficiency, employment advancement, school-readiness, and educational achievement, or reducing dependence on public assistance.”

They plan to increase assistence, and decrease births?!?!?!?!?
so that they can decrease the need for assistence.

Oh, that is so mixed up!

Steve and I found camo siding, now we just need to find camo roofing.
Then we can build a place tucked away into a mountain valley ;o)
Just kidding!

There are some new Mom's, that could use guidance, home visitation etc, mainly because they have no support, or are very young, or are single, these types of situations seem to put babies and small children at higher risk for abuse and neglect. But, it seems that just because some people are not good parents why on earth should all the many good parents our there be subjected to such an invasion of privacy??? Some of the things I am hearing about the health care reform, some of the czars put in key positions of power and influence, the pro-abortion/euthanasia/population control comments made by government people make me wonder if we aren't beginning to live in The Brave New World, and it frightens me!
