The study states, "Even with a conservative analysis of the data, the achievement levels of the homeschool students in the study were exceptional. Within each grade level and each skill area, the median scores for homeschool students fell between the 70th and 80th percentile of students nationwide and between the 60th and 70th percentile of Catholic/Private school students. For younger students, this is a one year lead. By the time homeschool students are in 8th grade, they are four years ahead of their public/private school counterparts."

Five areas of academic pursuit were measured. In reading, the average home-schooler scored at the 89th percentile; language, 84th percentile; math, 84th percentile; science, 86th percentile; and social studies, 84th percentile. In the core studies (reading, language and math), the average home-schooler scored at the 88th percentile.

The average public school student taking these standardized tests scored at the 50th percentile in each subject area.

Maybe your having two jobs is keeping someone else from having one? You don know jobs are not infinite? You're not up to date to know that there are no longer any free welfare checks. Walk around in $130 shoes...small luxuries for people who get no vacations and travel. If this world goes to #### you will be eaten by those same people you despise.



You truly have no idea do you? No vacations or travel? They live a F$%&^*G vacation! These moochers next door go to Florida every year! Care to know the last time my family and I had a vacation? It's been over 5 years. I really don't care if my having two jobs takes one from someone else. Like I said before, I care about my family and that's it. To hell with everyone else. Small luxuries? They don't deserve luxuries as they haven't done a damned thing to earn those $130 shoes.

And as far as eating me?





Not really, our society has turned into a society where there are millions of people, but not millions of jobs. It turned to a society where certain people are disenfranchised and rather than grovel as I guess you and others feel they should, they make the best of their situations. Sick people like you call this living it up...because they aren't begging you and dying in the streets.


The key phrase here is HAS turned into..It wasn't always so and if you have ever studied history or are up in years you know it. Grovel? I don't want anyone to grovel..I want them to take care of themselves instead of me and every other tax payer in this country doing so! My question to you is why in the hell you think we should take care of and provide everything for them?




Actually many of them won't be the first to expire. While you are in your "me and mine" world, they have a large family of have-nots who will destroy your attitude and eat your family should the bottom drop out. You will be nothing but food and all your preppin will feed the people you despise. Those videos you watch where gangs of young men are being violent and you shake your head and call them animals...they will form huge gangs and go about TAKING what they want.


Here, let me help you understand that you're completely out of touch with reality. I can promise you they'll be the first to go. They have no skills for survival as they've been dependent on the government and tax payers their whole lives. They'll have no clue what to do. And everyone that knows me knows they'd never make it past my porch.My neighbors know not to even come on my property even if their dying and it's an emergency. I've made sure they know what I think of them. These gangs of young men you speak of don't exist here and never will unless they tried to come here from the nearest big city(last group like that that came down here trying to rough up some of our boys left with a few people and one car less than they came with) and as there are several small towns they'd have to go through before they even reached my town they'd never make it here because the other towns are close knit just like us. You city boys and ghetto boys aren't as bad as you think you are. Want to find out go to a small town and mess with a resident there.



You will be food...


If you think so

Why not give YOUR money to them and leave everyone else's alone. I know why, that goes against the Progressive mindset.

Good day, sir.

Who hates people???
I am the one that believes that they can rise up from their current economic standards, without first having the Govt steal from me.

You believe that the Govt HAS to intervene, because the poor just can't do it. You are either intellectually lazy, or just so beholden to the Progressive mindset, it allows for you to be ignorant to what can be done.


Also, you never did answer. I give 10% annually. What do you give?

The variety of successful people and stories in this book is amazing , from a Yale law school student to an Arkansas state trooper to NFL football player. There isn't a butcher, a baker, or a candlestick maker in the crowd, but there's a Broadway performer, a multi-millionaire internet entrepreneur, a firefighter , and a building contractor who sailed solo around the world in his teens, went to Stanford on a scholarship and quit because he didn't want to waste precious time in college.

When you depend on someone else, you lose your freedoms.

If we have a society where people aren't expected to handle things themselves then we will live in a society without freedoms. Instead we'll be robots sanctioned by our country's experts.

Remain sitting and feel tyranny, get up (and act) and feel freedom.

If you don't do things yourself, others will do it for you. You may not like what they do.
edit on 29-5-2013 by jonnywhite because: (no reason given)




We all depend on each other...that's the elephant in the room no one wants to admit.


"Depending on each other" is a tad bit different than one totally depending on others. My neighbors and I help each other out: we laon ech other things, we feed each other if someone is having a hard time, one guy with a snowplow might do all off the driveways on the street one winter and the other guy with the riding lawnmower will mow his lawn in the summer. This is a mutal giving and taking with everybody pitching in because that is what neighbors do.

This is radically different from someone doing nothing and expecting everyone else to take care of him and empowering a third party (government) to force it.




If they do nothing it's because our society is set up that way. Rather than villianize them we should have come up with a simple solution such as people on welfare can beautify the city they live in. Simple solution, the question is why hasn't it happened?


Notice how lovely, new section 8 housing is trashed and destroyed in a few years? That is because these people do not care and do not have the initiative to take care of their own homes. If they did, they wouldn't be on the dole for very long. Pride and independant spirit has been slowly destroyed in our society thanks to the likes of FDR and LBJ.


You must not think very highly of humanity, based upon your posts, it appears as if you ignore the vast majority of people who work hard decade after decade...

FDRs policies were a reaction to a government who looked the other way while millions of Americans starved.
Furthermore, my grandparents and their generation were the first beneficiaries of FRDs policies and I'll bet they could all out work you. Second, those same people did not make enough money to save (like a DOCTOR might be able to) and those hard working people were able to retire and survive THANKS TO FDR AND LBJs policies.

I work with section 8 people professionally, MR and TBI patients amongst others, and I do not see the destruction you assign to them.

Finally, you do not seem to grasp poverty or you simply wouldn't ride in on your high horse and assign laziness and all the rest to people who are not lazy. What you are engaging in, is called prejudice, and as it is with black people, jews and even poor people, blanket statements are not indicative of the whole. The real problem is that your spirit is small, also, if your read your posts objectively, it appears that you are envious of these people.

If you are so proud and independent, why would you be envious of people who are crippled and downtrodden?


edit on 30-5-2013 by Idonttouchmethere because: (no reason given)


Bull#. I rose up from poverty and know it quite well from the inside. I know what people are capable of achieving through hard work and dedication and I also know many people who simply do not care.


Apparently you have forgotten what it is like... You should recall that people can work very hard and still be poor and even hungry. The same people can be dedicated, and still be poor and hungry, that is usually the lesson that poverty teaches people. Maybe you need to revisit your roots or examine the teachings of Jesus, because like many well to do people, it appears that your have lost your humility and perspective.

I will prey for you.

Did you not read my post? $1200 a month is a lot when it's free money and you have no bills. And how is HUD not free? They pay NOTHING for rent. They don't work. The girl will get a job and work for 1 day..just enough to earn $25 so she can file a tax return and get a crap load of money back. The guy? He's never worked a day in his life. He was born into welfare and will most likely die in welfare. Hence my cradle to the grave comment in a previous post. She's a pill head and he's been an alcoholic since he was a teenager( in his early 30's now). They both have rooked the system into getting SSI. I'm not sure what she gets it for but I do know he got it because he says he cant' read due to a learning disability. He reads just fine on Facebook and his phone when he's texting. Care to know more about them or is that enough for you?
