Being a parent is, to me, the most rewarding occupation I have ever had. It is challenging, frustrating at times, but it is also the happiest and most important thing I've ever done.
I grew up in a large Italian family. My grandparents immigrated from Italy with their young ones to escape the tyrannical Mussolini and to grasp firmly that "American Dream" which was once upon a time so important. It was so important that people from all over the world left their family, their homes and their country. They left behind hunger and poverty, persecutions and tyranny to start all over with only what they could carry. A lot of these folks couldn't even speak the language. What courage they had! "I loro famiglia" was a phrase I heard often growing up. Your Family. Family was the most important thing. Period. It was instilled in us to care about other family members. To care what the family thinks. To think about our actions and how it would help or harm the entire family. To not bring shame to yourself or your family by way of actions or neglect. We were taught friends come and go but family sticks together. You could survive anything as long as you had your family by your side. We were expected to carry our weight, help out, and do our best with the family always in the forefront of all our actions. We were taught so many things like: hunting, fishing, gardening, grafting, wine making, cheese making, canning, about carrier pigeons and animal husbandry to name just a few. Basically we were taught self sufficiency on every level-even the girls learned how to hunt, shoot and clean guns. The girls were taught how to be a woman, wife, mother and proud of herself. The boys were taught how to be a man and care for the family. We were all taught respect for our elders and ourselves. To not be pushed around. How and when to stand firm and that sometimes you had to take a stand. I think we were taught how to be good people, with high moral standards and to stand up for what is right. From little tots to grandparents, we looked out for each other. We prayed together, ate together and worked the farm together, all of us doing what we could. Have you ever seen a group of Italian men having a "discussion"? The kind of "discussion" I am talking about is no longer "politically correct" or allowed in our police society. A society where having and speaking about an opinion is frowned upon. Someone nowadays witnessing one of those "discussions" would undoubtedly call the police and cower in the corner! My Uncles and Father and Grandfather, being very strong Italian men, would sit around the kitchen table and PASSIONATELY and LOUDLY discuss everything. Politics and religion and history would usually result in loud, passionate, opinionated, hours long "discussions". How I miss them!! Our family had its problems and issues like every family does but when I look past the bumpy parts of my family I remember the gems I learned from "mia famiglia", my family. I lean on these teaching and hope I can pass the truth of them on to my children.
When I hear women say "I am just a stay at home mom" I feel sad for them. It belittles the importance of the job. It belittles them as a person. How did our society allow parenting to become such a worthless thing? How did our society allow the most important occupation to become something so hated, defamed, mocked, ridiculed and dishonored? Now raising our children with morals and character as we see fit, has become illegal. We are terrorists if we try to instill these good qualities in them. Now if we share our religion, our ethics, our opinions, or our beliefs, there is something wrong with us. The government, via the school system, now teaches our children are all INSANE! This quote is from "Psychiatry's Views on Education" given by Dr. Chester M. Pierce, Psychiatrist, in an address to the Childhood International Education Seminar, 1973
"Every child in America entering school at the age of five is insane because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity. It’s up to you as teachers to make all these sick children well – by creating the international child of the future" Can you believe that? Silly me, I thought all those beliefs were what made us such a great nation and people!

Some how the country now feels that the government can do a better job at raising my children than I can. How absurd! No one else has their best interests at heart and loves or cares for them more than the parents.
In the news this week is an article about a 16 year old boy being home schooled that has been held for 2 months now as a terrorist under the treasonous document the "Patriot Act"! Link here: http://www.infowars.com/wral-5-news-report-on-boy-arrested-under-the-patriot-act/ His basic constitutional rights have been stripped from him. His fifth amendment-to not be held without due process. His sixth amendment-right to a speedy, public and fair trial. His mother has no rights under this "patriot act" to know anything about the case. This is not a "Patriot Act" it is a "Tyranny Act"! This whole case is disgusting and unconstitutional and should not be tolerated! This could be your son or daughter, niece, nephew or grandchild this happens to next. When the country holds a 16 year old for months, without any proof, as a terrorist and strips his constitutional rights as a citizen from him it's time to wake up and stop the denial! How have we gotten this far from what is ethical, honorable, virtuous and just?
I ran across an article the other day from "Canada Free Press". I found it sad that this article came from a country other than ours. The article is entitled "The President Who Hates His Country" by Joan Swirsky -link here: http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/10784 This is a great article, please read it. It puts to words what I have felt and noticed about this president. Call me kooky, but I love this country, warts and all and I feel we can make it better than what the tyrant banksters have in mind. For the first time in history we have a president who talks derisively about "his" country, and sits quietly at speeches while the likes of Chavez and Ortega call us terrorists and worse. Not a peep, in defense of his countrymen, was uttered by this president. A president who won't defend his country even with words is a president that will destroy it. He bows and grovels before kings of other nations, he grovels at the feet of our enemies and he turns his back on our international friends. He dances to the tune his masters play, all the while smiling and killing us softly with lies and deceit. It angers me. "Now is the time for all good men, to come to the aid of our county"! Wake up! Feel the blood rushing through your veins, take a deep breath and feel in your soul your FREEDOM. Feel that freedom rush through your SOUL. Now figure out what you believe in, what you stand for and draw a line in your sand. This is where we find our power and it's also what "they" are so afraid you will remember! This is the line you will find when you realize just what we've lost and what we've become in the eyes of these tyrants. Our countrymen, our families and friends have become surfs, slaves, and bond servants. We are seen as chattel and laborers, workers and workhorses. Our countrymen are nothing more than captives and victims, of their own making! They've lost what they didn't even realize they had, because they were distracted and dazed. They were more afraid of the boogy man than the consequences of their inaction! We must continue to share information with the sheeple. We are fighting for our right to live and we must not go quietly into the night! You reading this and myself for writing it are considered terrorists and dangerous criminals by the tyrants that are in control of OUR government! Our ancestors sacrifices were not so that we would live under the same tyranny and oppression that they fought so hard to leave behind! This is what despotism, dictatorship, fascism, tyranny and misery looks like.
Stand Firm, stand for Something!
Knowledge is Power!
