Good Advice

This is the best piece of wisdom you will consume today and perhaps for a long time, and it is how I have felt for many many years now: "“There is a saying that we should leave a better country to our children. But it’s more important to leave better children to our country.” (HT: Carpe Diem) Forget all the mumbo-jumbo that you hear from the left that we need to bequeath our children all this utopian machinery, they'll do fine if given a solid moral foundation, a thoroughgoing Anglo-Saxon education strong on the study of the classic civilizations and Western history, science and math, and short on all the post-modern relativist, mumbo-jumbo, and the freedom to make their way in this world. Michelle Obama and all the others can stuff their rhetoric about what we need to do, how we need to change, and stuff all this social engineering and taking our money in the name of building a better nation. Job one for me is raising children that can make make good choices and make their way in this world. It's something we should all see as our principal role. Leave us alone and let us pour the fruits of our labor into that job and we can stop worrying about the future of our nation.
