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. William 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.

The Hand that Rocks the Cradle



Too often, a mother's influence is underrated. We cannot be reminded often enough that "the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world." It is the mother who through modeling behavior forms a child's attitudes and beliefs. This poem says it all. 

The Hand That Rocks The Cradle

Is The Hand That Rules The World



Blessings on the hand of women!

Angels guard its strength and grace,

In the palace, cottage, hovel,

Oh, no matter where the place;

Would that never storms assailed it,
Rainbows ever gently curled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

Infancy's the tender fountain,
Power may with beauty flow,
Mother's first to guide the streamlets,
From them souls unresting grow--
Grow on for the good or evil,
Sunshine streamed or evil hurled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

Woman, how divine your mission
Here upon our natal sod!
Keep, oh, keep the young heart open
Always to the breath of God!
All true trophies of the ages
Are from mother-love impearled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.

Blessings on the hand of women!
Fathers, sons, and daughters cry,
And the sacred song is mingled
With the worship in the sky--
Mingles where no tempest darkens,
Rainbows evermore are hurled;
For the hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.


William Ross Wallace


God commands that "older women are to teach the younger women to love their husbands, to love their children, and to be keepers of the home." It must not come naturally if God must command it. For some of us, it must be an act of the will. And what is this "be keepers of the home" business? 

Let me take you to another meaning of the word keeper. Think of a light house keeper who maintains the light so that ships will not crash against the rocks. That "keeper" keeps the home fires burning. A keep of a castle was always the strongest or central tower of a castle, acting as a final refuge. That, mothers, is what you are. Never, ever, see this as demeaning. It is exalting.

My Prayer for America

Father God,

Before we voted we lifted our nation up to you.

We are Americans who believe that our Constitution guarantees freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion. Though we may come to you calling you by various names, we recognize that you are Lord of All and Creator of all things. Prayers lifting like rays of light radiated from throughout this great land of ours asking for your healing hand upon our nation.

We recognize that All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Our champion in this race as well as those of us who prayed for and voted for him acknowledge that You are not through with any of us in molding and shaping us into who we should be. We found assurance in his selection of a running mate, Mike Pence, a godly man. We found assurance in the deference and respect with which our candidate treated his choice of running mate. We felt confidence that Pence and his wife, Karen, prayed frequently with our candidate bringing him along as perhaps a babe in Christ so much so that others in the faith, Phil Robertson, Jerry Falwell, Jr., and other faith leaders had confidence in his character. We heard our candidate's apology and accept it.

We are Americans who reject identity politics. We do not see people as Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Jews, Christians, Muslim, etc. We see Americans. We see mothers who want the best for their children: the best education, clean water, safe neighborhoods, secure bridges and roads, effective health care, jobs and opportunities for Americans throughout our country. We see veterans male and female who love America and are willing to sacrifice to the last measure. We see police who deserve respect as they are on the front lines of our national defense against gangs, drugs and violence that threaten the very security of our homes and neighborhoods.

We reject the disrespect for the flag of our country that represents the very sacrifices so many have given so that those individuals might have the life our country affords them and the freedom to express their opinion. We reject disrespect for laws that protect life, liberty and property represented by riots in the streets destroying private property and small businesses considering their own opinion justifies such action. We reject the attitude that this is a Nation of Rights without respect to the fact those Rights come with Responsibilities and Obligations as well.

We hear disrespect and foul language and reject it in every day life and throughout the media. We hear misogyny, licentiousness, hatred and bigotry from celebrities whose lyrics and lifestyle espouse that philosophy and who would want us to vote as they see fit and not as our own individual conscience guides us. We see politics invading the classrooms of our schools where traditional disciplines needed to truly educate our children are neglected. We pray for freedom for all parents to choose an effective curriculum to mold our child's mind. We pray for a reformation of classrooms now dedicated to a certain vision of "social justice" rather than true education that is rampant in schools across America.

We thank you, Lord, that we have a democratic republic and not a pure democracy in which two foxes and a hen would be voting for what's for dinner. We thank you for the wisdom of our forefathers who blessed us with those protections.

Grant our President Elect wisdom as he selects those who will unleash the productivity of our nation and enable job creation, protect us from our enemies at home, defend our borders, enforce our laws, secure our liberties, and defend our nation and our allies abroad.

Unto You goes all glory, honor and praise. We bow before you humbly and seek your guidance in how we can go forth and be a better servant of Yours -- and a better American.
