On the Women's March

On the Women's March. I wish I had written this. It says EXACTLY what I wish I had written. I would love to know the original source of this post. Please share if you know. I'd like to friend that person. I am not a "disgrace to women" because I don't support the women's march. I do not feel I am a "second class citizen" because I am a woman. I do not feel my voice is "not heard" because I am a woman. I do not feel I am not provided opportunities in this life or in America because I am a woman. I do not feel that I "don't have control of my body or choices" because I am a woman. I do not feel like I am " not respected or undermined" because I am a woman. 
I AM a woman. 
I can make my own choices. 
I can speak and be heard. 
I can VOTE. 
I can work if I want. 
I control my body. 
I can defend myself. 
I can defend my family. 
There is nothing stopping me to do anything in this world but MYSELF. 
I do not blame my circumstances or problems on anything other than my own choices or even that sometimes in life, we don't always get what we want. I take responsibility for myself. 
I am a mother, a daughter, a wife, a sister, a friend. I am not held back in life but only by the walls I choose to not go over which is a personal choice. 
Quit blaming. 
Take responsibility. 
If you want to speak, do so. But do not expect for me, a woman, to take you seriously wearing a pink va-jay-jay hat on your head and screaming profanities and bashing men. 
If you have beliefs, and speak to me in a kind matter, I will listen. But do not expect for me to change my beliefs to suit yours. Respect goes both ways. 
If you want to impress me, especially in regards to women, then speak on the real injustices and tragedies that affect women in foreign countries that do not that the opportunity or means to have their voices heard. 
Saudi Arabia, women can't drive, no rights and must always be covered. 
China and India, infantcide of baby girls. 
Afghanistan, unequal education rights. 
Democratic Republic of Congo, where rapes are brutal and women are left to die, or HIV infected and left to care for children alone. 
Mali, where women can not escape the torture of genital mutilation. 
Pakistan, in tribal areas where women are gang raped to pay for men's crime. 
Guatemala, the impoverished female underclass of Guatemala faces domestic violence, rape and the second-highest rate of HIV/AIDS after sub-Saharan Africa. An epidemic of gruesome unsolved murders has left hundreds of women dead, some of their bodies left with hate messages.
And that's just a few examples. 
So when women get together in AMERICA and whine they don't have equal rights and march in their clean clothes, after eating a hearty breakfast, and it's like a vacation away that they have paid for to get there...
This WOMAN does not support it.

The Civil War in Education: Why we should loose the bonds of enslavement to the Progressive Agenda and the National Education Association

This is a Power Point I prepared to present to a group of legislators who are accustomed to trusting "professionals." These "professionals" are the ones who have caused the problems and yet we trust them to fix them? This is a history of how we came to the position we are in now.
Sharman Ramsey, BSE, MSE























I I I want to add an addendum here. It might sound as if I have contempt for teachers and the teaching profession. On the contrary, teaching is my profession and I have the GREATEST respect for those teachers who succeed in teaching young people IN SPITE OF the stupidity of administrators out for power, prestige, politics and profit. They see teaching as a calling and have chosen the profession in spite of the problems. It is the circle the wagons necessity that they must participate in, defending the indefensible, in order to keep their jobs that I find contemptuous. Will’s words above are only too true about a large percentage of our teachers, unfortunately. They will not challenge the status quo.

SOLVE PROBLEMS OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS: Hope on the Horizon with Betsy Devoss





This letter to the Editor was written in the 1990s. It is now 2017 and the schools are as bad if not worse than before. Everything I wrote then remains true, only now there is the hope of change in Betsy Devoss whose campaign has long been to free children from the bonds of mediocrity or total failure and bring about choice through Charter schools. Parents will have to step up to the bat and do their own research into redefining the mission of the school their child will attend to attain an education not an indoctrination. Two schools I have experience with that achieve those goals are Northside Methodist Academy in Dothan, Alabama (http://www.nmacademy.net/about-us) that uses the ABEKA curriculum and Providence Christian School (https://www.providencechristianschool.com) that is a Classical School. 

Do not believe that the absence of religious education means that there is NO RELIGION being taught in our schools. Humanism, with its agnosticism, supposed values free conflict resolution and earth worship, have taken the place of true religion. And with the upsurge in violence and drug abuse, we can see where that has taken us.

SOLVE PROBLEMS OF PUBLIC SCHOOLS 
published in the Dothan Eagle but I'll bet the problems mentioned would apply to ANY state. 

Once people become aware of the condition of our public schools, their first question is “What can be done?”  On the national level, Republicans are abolishing the Department of Education and working to repeal Goals 2000.

On the state level, fixing education begins in the Legislature which now has 40 percent of its body connected to education. They must be held to the standard of the Alabama Constitution Article IV, Section 82 that stipulates “…A member of the Legislature shall disclose that fact to the House of which he is a member, and shall not vote thereon.” Prosecution for violations must follow.

PAC contributions to the AEA are paid through payroll deductions: therefore, taxpayers’ dollars spent for administration subsidizes the teacher’s union. Deduction makes this a public matter and puts pressure to join on teachers who might not wish to participate. Alabamians must not be forced to subsidize lobbying efforts against themselves.

Teacher certification must be addressed. All teachers should first have a degree in an academic discipline outside the college of education. It is more important that teachers have knowledge to impart than honors degrees in theory of imparting knowledge and modifying attitudes and beliefs. English mastery is imperative for all teachers. 

Parents must be given control over their children’s education through choice. Competition will weed out incompetent schools and educators and our children will have a chance for an education, not an indoctrination in “new paradigms,” using Total Quality Management in schools as in factories to “produce workers for the global economy.  

Our most vulnerable citizens need vouchers so they might grab onto that American dream. Neither our children nor our money belong to the government. As long as vouchers are considered government money, whatever elite is in power controls the curriculum. Home schools, private and church schools would rather struggle than sacrifice their autonomy to the whim of he politically correct. 


Only when we circumvent the control of a liberal union and powerful tax-exempt foundations that fund research and teaching positions to promote their agenda can we begin to truly educate our citizenry.

Take a Knee



We moved recently and articles from the past surfaced. With all the shootings in churches, schools, and on our streets, it is time to challenge the curricular decisions in our school systems and the Department of Education. When one takes a knee on a football field disrespecting the symbol of our nation and receives praise and honor and another takes a knee on the field honoring our God and is threatened with arrest or loss of a job, something is seriously wrong!

I suggest there is a connection between the disaffection of our children and love of country and obedience to civilized rules of behavior and curriculum in our schools.

April 21, 1999

Dear Editor:

I am sure the shootings in Colorado will produce the same mantra there that the shooting in Dothan produced: we need more conflict resolution. There is only one problem--the shootings followed putting conflict resolution in the classrooms.

Just what could be wrong with something that sounds so good?

Children need absolutes, not values clarification. Their first response when told to do something is, says who? When a group of one's peers "consensus" on an issue, children rightfully question what makes that opinion more valid than another? Peer tutoring and group learning have produced a Lord of the Flies environment in our schools undermining respect for authority.

Schools have ousted God and His absolutes. Nebuchedezzer sends his agent to find out if Daniel is praying and even our politically sensitized pastors support Nebuchedezzer. In this spiritual vacuum, values clarification (conflict resolution) encourages children to become their own gods (challenge the fixed beliefs of their parents [the supposed top of the pyramid of moral development]and do what is right in their own eyes).  A student in Littleton is shot standing up for Christ and bleeding heart Americans bemoan the fact that the Satan worshippers who committed the heinous act were rejected for their outrageous beliefs and behavior.

Yet, one of the major advocates of values clarification, Dr. Williams Coulson, colleague of Abraham Maslow, one of the most influential psychologists of our time has come to a change of heart. He writes regarding his Maslow:

"Maslow regrets...the many, many unwarranted extensions of his own theories of need satisfaction and self-actualization to children...In the last 18 months of his life he became convinced the therapeutic classroom never should have been tried."

"So I saw students being thrown back on their own devices. when that happens, what's likeliest to fall away are the absolutes of their parents and the commandments of their indigenous religious faiths."

Robert Muller, undersecretary to the UN and Director of the University of Peace in Costa Rica from which originated the International Educational Goals known in the USA as Goals 2000 is also the founder of the School of Ageless Wisdom in Arlington, Texas. His curriculum guide credits Alice Bailey, channel for the Ascended Master Tibetan Dwjal Khul, as the source of the curriculum. Robert Muller's webpage on the United Nations website is dedicated to global peace education and links to the company which provided Dothan, Alabama's conflict resolution materials.

A spiritual void will not remain empty. Just what have we unwittingly invited into our schools?

It is time to "take a knee" once again honoring our God. Let education dollars follow the child not the schools and give parents the option of choosing religious schools that respect their values.

Trump's election a rejection of being "human capital" to the world economy

Trump Rally in Pensacola

A patriotic genealogical organization to which I belong sent me a questionnaire recently for me to fill out to send in to National so that we can make points. The questions were: 


1 How many conservation projects did your chapter or members of your chapter complete this year?
2. How many conservation programs were presented at chapter meetings?
3. Did you present a “Conservation Minute” at every meeting?
 Yes  No
4. How many of your members participated in a citizen science project (e.g. surveys, Great Backyard Bird Count, summer butterfly count, mapping invasive plants, etc.)?
5. How many chapter members participated in Earth Day (April 22, 2016) and/or Arbor Day (April 29, 2016) activities?
6. How many of your members planted pollinator gardens or used native plants in their home landscape?

Since the mission of this organization is to be a "non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children" I was much concerned by those questions. You see, I am well aware how the Left models attitudes and beliefs by modeling behavior. Though I have commented mostly on their efforts on our children in school through group learning, peer tutoring, and thematic education, by having our well-respected patriotic organization participate in this Earth Day activity, I see the attitudes and beliefs of this organization about this form of environmentalism also being molded and shaped. Indeed, by our organization's participation, we in effect endorse this agenda.

I object. So, I sent the president of our organization an email saying that I do not participate in Earth Day and included this email that I received from the Founder of Earth Day that I posted on my website on the Conspiracy of the Left page (http://www.southern-style.com/Education/conspiracy_of_the_left.html) and my response to it. I gathered this information sixteen years ago in the year 2000. In rereading the Conspiracy of the Left page, I was amazed to see how successful the Left has been in co-opting the very institutions of our society one would think would be the most resistant to this intrusion. 

This email was sent to me by a gentleman who claimed credit for the creation of Earth Day (I thought it was Maurice Strong who started it). I want to share this interchange to bring attention to how successful the Left has been toward achieving their goal of one world order and the annihilation of the nation state. I hope you will be inspired to read this interchange and then study the Conspiracy of the Left charts of how all of these world organizations interconnect.

Subject: From Earth Day Founder


 Dear Friends,

 Your web site brings out repeatedly the many conflicting forces at work in society.  I happen to be an evangelical Christian - and was the founder of the real Earth Day. Please to to my web site: www.earthsite.org.  Note:
"Commandments of Jesus."  I would be delighted if you would give me a call.

 John McConnell  -- the founder of the original Earth Day.

I did go to Mr. McConnell's web site (http://www.earthdayone.org/charta.htm#Prelude) and responded by e-mail...

Dear Mr. McConnell,

 Please forgive me for taking so long to respond to your email.  My yard was recently on the garden tour for the local botanical garden.  Needless to say I have been "sowing, hoeing and mowing" from morning till night.

 Then my computer got a "worm"!  Unfortunately this worm did nothing to aerate my soil and merely wreaked havoc on data!  I feel like composting my computer.

 I am finally back and ready to respond.

 I did check out the web site to which you referred me.  I must tell you the inclination toward world government has me alarmed.  I find it amazing that groups of non governmental organizations (unelected) would presume to dictate and assume such power over the people of the world.  After reading David Hornbeck's book Human Capital I am quite aware of the determination of these groups to "create a sense of crisis" and then come up with "the answer" (predetermined and always enhancing their own power and advocacy group).  

By manipulating opinion through altruistic jargon people are convinced to cede their independence and individualism to become "human capital" to the world economy.  Man has become merely a cog whose purpose is to create wealth and deposit it into the hands of a world elite.  Man's only purpose is to create wealth to be used by the "elite" for the "common good" according to their determination of that good.  No longer is the individual a special child of God created in His image for His purpose, allowed to dream and become...whatever that may be...farmer or president.  By taxing the world, this "world" body would have immense power to become the foxes telling the chicken what's for dinner.  And I do not doubt that our own country, the beacon of hope and freedom for the world, the most generous of all nations, would then become ripe for the plucking.

Socialism has never worked.  It has merely bred tyrants and dictators (Lenin, Stalin, Mao for example) and led to blood baths.  Whatever group that tyrant decided was "inferior" or a "threat to the common good" was annihilated...gypsies, Jews, Christians, freedom fighters.  It is freedom that has elevated the standard of living for the people of this country. It is freedom to realize the potential of each individual that we should "redistribute" and then whatever "resources" each country has could be developed without making the entire world generic according to the supposed egalitarian edicts of a world elite.

  I realize it was an ideal of Plato's to breed an "elite" to rule and provide for the less able masses.  Unfortunately, history has proven that such arrogance in the "elite" produced only contempt for the masses and a disregard for the value of human life.  The end justifies the means.

 You and I share a commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  Yet, I  wonder how we can be obedient to his "Great Commission" under the United Religions Initiative.  Can we truly love and not share the Truth and eternity with our fellow man?  How can we compromise God's Word and our Faith by coming to "consensus" on issues about which the Bible is so clear?  Are we not doing just what the last verse in the book of Judge's commented so sadly upon:  "And they all did what was right in their own eyes" ?

 I see the world government movement much like the building of the Tower of  Babel.  Man sets himself up as his own god.  We sow to the wind and will  reap the whirlwind.

 I will give you credit for being the founder of Earth Day (surely altruistic in its infancy), but was it your vision that it evolve into a symbol of the movement to confiscate private property, redistribute the wealth of the  world according to the whims of some world elite, and force Christians to compromise their absolutes to conform to the "current wisdom"?  I am concerned that we have come to worship the creation and not the Creator. 

 You are now in your eighties.  You have had a very full life.  I have just  turned fifty (that was a tough day).  We will have much to tell our Savior when we see him face to face.  I know you, like me, long to hear him say, "Well done my good and faithful servant."

 Thank you for writing me.  I am honored.

 In His love...
Your sister in Christ,
Sharman Ramsey

The elites in their arrogance never expected the reaction demonstrated by Brexit or Trump’s victory. They ran a candidate who was "the most qualified" (by their common world view) who was a major player in the movement for a world government. She actually expressed a desire for a common market with open trade and open borders. American workers easily discerned their importance in this world view.  May I suggest this reaction, their overwhelming support of Trump's agenda, was in part a reaction to the elitist Global Governance agenda. Americans have reasserted their patriotic love of country and their rejection of being "human capital" to the world economy.
