  The Film "IndoctriNation" | October 26, 2010 | Digg This


On September 7, I spent two hours with Colin Gunn and several of his colleagues who are producing a film called “IndoctriNation” about the adverse impact of government schools on generations of children and parents. The forthcoming film is subtitled, “Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity in America”.

  The Economist of Guatemala | October 19, 2010 | Digg This


More than a decade ago, it was my privilege to be the guest of Manuel Ayau in Guatemala.

Manuel had run for President of Guatemala, but, most notably in 1971, he founded the Universidad Francisco Marroquin, which today hosts 2700 students, each of whom is required to study classical economists, including Frederich Hayek.

Muso, as Manuel was known, was targeted by Marxist assassins. I recall staying at his home and his use of a remote control starter for his car, which enabled him to check for bombs.

My friend, Manuel Ayau, has died at the age of 84.

Cuccinelli Supporters Aren’t From ‘Far Right’

To the Editor,

I am a regular reader of Virginia Business, but I was concerned when I read your article on page 6 of the August edition [Our View by Publisher Bernie Niemeier: “Who’s running for governor?”], in which you said, “Cuccinelli does well with the far right.”

How do you define “far right”? Is it those of us (a) who oppose abortion, (b) who favor reducing the size of the federal government to its constitutional limits, (c) who are totally committed to the Second Amendment, (d) who oppose special rights for sodomites, (e) who favor a strong national defense focusing our territory and population? What makes us “far right”?

How do you define “far left”? Is it those who support the policies of Barack Obama, including partial-birth abortion, tax hikes, socialized medicine, etc.?

My hope is that, in the future, you will not characterize the supporters of Ken Cuccinelli in a pejorative manner.

Americans 'Send Them a Message' to Repeal ObamaCare!

The Conservative Caucus (TCC) launched today the "Pledge to Repeal ObamaCare" campaign at Americans are urged to visit and print the Pledge to Repeal ObamaCare and get their Senators, Representative and candidates for the House and Senate to sign the pledge.

Howard Phillips, TCC’s Chairman, announced the new campaign and the launch of, "This is a vital step in repealing Obama’s Socialist medicine scheme, to help keep the pressure on members of Congress to resist the influence of special interests and liberals in both parties who will be lobbying to avoid repealing ObamaCare.

Make no mistake, there are many powerful individuals and companies who will quickly learn how to profit from health care rationing and other elements of Socialist medicine; they will fight efforts by Americans to repeal this dangerous scheme."

Mr. Phillips invited Americans to pass the word to their friends; "As concerned citizens, your action and that of your friends can make the difference, and I invite you to visit now and send ‘them’ a message."

In conclusion, Mr. Phillips noted the effectiveness of videoing pledge signing and deliveries, "Under the scrutiny of a video camera, you may find members of Congress and candidates more willing to be courageous and sign the pledge to repeal ObamaCare, than in the quiet of their office with special interests looking over their shoulder."

The Conservative Caucus (TCC) is a grass roots action organization, formed in 1974. It was active in opposing the ObamaCare bill, defeating the SALT II Treaty, repealing the Catastrophic Coverage Act, blocking the Clinton health-care takeover, and impeaching President Clinton.

  Home Schooling  | Digg This

Recently I was asked "If you were going to homeschool your own children today, what curriculum and method would you choose?".

I am, in fact, helping to homeschool four of my grandchildren, and my method is very simple: a) I share life experiences with them, b) I give them books to read which I think are of particular value and importance, c) I ask them to write reports on each of those books, d) I emphasize vocabulary and grammar, et cetera. So far, each of them is doing very well on their College Board tests and college admissions.

My youngest son, Sam, was homeschooled, even while he resided in his mother’s womb, and he was accepted at every college to which he applied, including Hampden-Sydney, William and Mary, Virginia Military Institute, Christendom College, and The Citadel. In most cases, he was offered scholarships.

We had no fixed curriculum, but we made sure he was well versed in the Constitution, the Bible, current events, history, et cetera.

You also ask "If you were going to invest in career education today, where would you place a bet on demand for the future? What skills would you develop in order to be a viable worker in the economy of the future?".

My answer is very simple. There will always be a demand for integrity, energy, as well as verbal and written communication skills.

Good men are hard to find, and they usually will have no problem whatsoever in finding suitable opportunities.

Thanks for asking.
Howard Phillips
