LONDON, England (PNN) - March 11, 2020 - The human race is in grave ­danger. Thousands of people are showing severe symptoms already and there is no known cure.

Commentary: The gospel of ignorance

March 3, 2020 - The good news about ignorance is that it sets us free from mental chains. Now, to be clear, what I'm talking about here is accepting and admitting our ignorance. This is essential if we want to actually know things, as opposed to making a show of knowing things. I can tell you from personal experience that it really works. I gained the habit of admitting my ignorance (almost advertising it) back in the early 1980s, and that habit has helped me toward more understanding and discovery than I'd be able to itemize.

Josh Sigurdson talks with Freeway Rick Ross, a former drug kingpin who went from rags to millions and found himself running drugs for the CIA onto the streets of Kalifornia. Freeway Rick Ross dealt with hundreds of millions of dollars from the 1980s into the 1990s becoming one of the biggest drug dealers in the world. He found himself dealing with the contras and the next thing he knew, he was running drugs for the CIA. He later found himself in prison for a substantial amount of time, being released a little over ten years ago and exposing the system he was once part of.

Mom entrepreneurs share how they homeschool and grow their businesses

Submitted by Freedomman on Wed, 03/04/2020 - 19:27

December 10, 2018 - “I would love to homeschool my (children), but I have to work.” Homeschooling parents hear this statement all the time, sometimes during casual conversations about various education options, or more often, when a friend or stranger confides that schooling isn’t working so well.

I’m not going to lie; homeschooling requires a lot of effort, presence, time, and vigilance. But with more parents able to work flexible schedules, share childrearing responsibilities, take advantage of the growing gig economy, and utilize various alternatives to school, homeschooling is becoming a more realistic option for many families.

The three moms spotlighted here have found that entrepreneurship is a particularly powerful tool for combining homeschooling, career fulfillment, and financial prosperity. They are strategic and savvy multi-taskers - just like most parents juggling work and family. But as entrepreneurs and homeschoolers, these moms show that it is possible to fully nurture your children and your company at the same time.

Commentary: School vouchers versus educational liberty

Submitted by Freedomman on Thu, 02/13/2020 - 01:14

January 31, 2020 - It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Amerika’s public school systems are in perpetual crisis. That’s what socialism does. It produces crises or what the economist Ludwig von Mises called “planned chaos”.

It would be difficult to find a better model for socialism than public schooling. We call it “public schooling” but the more accurate name would be government schooling. This is a government program from top to bottom. The schoolteachers and administrators are government employees. The government provides the textbooks and establishes the curriculum. The government enacts compulsory school-attendance laws, which are enforced on parents through threats of incarceration and fines. To fund its operations, the government forcibly takes money from people through taxation.

How do they do it?

PUTNEY, Vermont (PNN) - January 31, 2020 - In just a couple of weeks, 50 boys with learning disabilities will take to a stage in Vermont, one after the other, to recite the Gettysburg Address from memory. It’s a daring experiment undertaken each February at the Greenwood School and its population of boys who’ve struggled in public schools. Diagnosed with ADD, dyslexia, and executive function impairments, Greenwood’s boys stand before an auditorium full of people (and once even a Ken Burns documentary crew) to recite powerful words many adults would struggle to retain.

Commentary: Brexiteers want Freedom not democracy

LONDON, England (PNN) - January 30, 2020 - When the Fascist United Kingdom exits the European Union late on Friday, Brexit will be hailed as a victory for British democracy. Three times Britons voted to leave the EU and “take back control”: in June 2016, when the Leave campaign won at the EU referendum; in the general election the following June, when the vast majority of voters cast ballots for political Parties promising to fulfill the referendum will of the people (even though the Conservative Party itself only achieved a minority government); and finally, in December 2019 - the second general election in as many years - after months and months of Remainer parliamentary obstruction, Britons overwhelming elected Boris Johnson on the pledge to “get Brexit done”. Third time’s the charm.
