The homeschoolers I have met will supplement their teaching by going to lectures by certified/degree holding persons. They will have persons with degree’s in englich or literature come in for a four or five week stint to teach harder to grasp concepts in both, or to teach the Greek plays and the like.

Almost like a small classroom, just at someone’s house or at a public place.

They want dumbed down Darwinists running around being a good little statist, talking about secularism, talking about sex-ed and how great “alternative lifestyles” are. This is what is at the core of this legal battle that will be a stepping stone to curbing in home education that not all lifestyles are equal both morally and healthfully.

What a task.
Not to mention that they are government run, so the calibration would be right on or would have been neglected for some time? I will let the reader come up with the most plausible answer to that.
Miami AZ., I do not think this one needs an explanation about how bad the temperature readings must be... um, hotter than they should be???
Cedarville CA., looking east. Take note of the new Forest Service concrete pad for their offices.
Inside temperature structure.
Looking north. I am sure no heat radiates off the propane tanks.
Some great work on the part of this site. Holding the crazy enviro-whacker's to task as well as holding the government responsible for shoddy work!! Awesome!

We want life!
I am typically not a huge fan of Alan Dershowitz. His defense of legal positivism against Alan Keyes erudite slap down via natural law theory on C-Span was a reminder to me what is at stake in our culture war. But on
