Santorum so wrong.....................

Gosh I didn't think I would find anything to disagree with in this piece, Rick Santorum Calls Bill Maher Illogical Over Attacks on Homeschooling Children, as I too thought Maher was out of line. But Santorum proved once again what an idiot he truly is.

There wasn't an interview that went by the last week where I wasn't asked a question about Rush Limbaugh, and yet repeatedly, these folks on the left – whether it's Maher or Letterman or you name it – they're out there trashing everybody who stands up for Christian conservative values, anybody who dares to actually teach their children faith in their home."

Maher, host of HBO's "Real Time," had levied his attacks on Santorum and his wife Karen for homeschooling their six school-age children.

Santorum, you aren't honestly comparing Maher's diatribe against your homeschooling with Rush's slander of Ms. Fluke! Really............ you are so not ready for prime time if you don't get that calling a woman a slut and a prostitute because she has the guts to go before Congress and ask for Reproductive Justice for Women isn't the same thing as throwing barbs at a Presentational Candidate's educational choice for his family. Especially when the candidate has made the issue part of his platform.

The debate over homeschooling versus public schools often inflames liberals,

Not true Mr. Santorum MANY Liberals are homeschoolers.

Bill Maher needs to open his mind

I don't know why the Santorum's homeschool, neither does Maher, but of course that didn't stop him from speculating. The educational choice one makes for ones children should be a personal family matter. Santorum has of course opened the door by discussing the educational choice his family choose but are the Santorum's really homeschoolers? Last I heard they were using a VIRTUAL PRIVATE SCHOOL after getting in trouble for taking advantage of the VIRTUAL  PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM where one of the homes they own is located. They didn't meet the residency requirements to qualify for the "FREE" tuition. The Santorum's hardly qualify as the "face of homeschooling".

Most troubling is that Maher doesn't seem to know the first thing about homeschooling or homeschoolers but that didn't stop him from sharing his uninformed opinion. Maher read some books about homeschooling, visit some homeschool blogs and then get back to us if you want to talk about homeschooling until then ..........................A mind is a terrible thing to waste Mr. Maher, try not to waste yours.

Hat Tip: Bill Maher: Santorum homeschools his kids because he wants them locked up in his “Christian madrassa”

Historical Fiction Death of Kings by Bernard Cornwell

Alfred the Great is dying (for real this time) and sides are being chosen who supports Alfred's son Edward and who supports his nephew AEthelwold, who is backed by the Danes. Uhtred chooses to serve Edward, but can he steer Edward along the right path and preserve the Saxon Kingdom or will the priest convince Edward that Uhtred the Pagan can not be trusted and doom Edward to defeat. In the end when all seems lost it is the cleverness and bravery of Edward's sister AEthelflaed who saves the day.
