You can either 'home school' or send your kids to Texas for education. Either way, you child scholars won't be harmed and confused by facts.

I hope she wins her suit, this sort of behavior should not be tolerated. But Barb, just a reminder, when lie with dogs you wake up with fleas. Lesson learned?

Imagine that! A political candidate using a staffer in such a cold way, and outright stealing personal documents from her very own private computer! This kind of reminds me of another candidate from back when I was a kid - but he had a bunch of henchmen who physically broke into the opposition's headquarters in a D.C. hotel. This is more high tech, cyber crime but doesn't just kind of have that same flavor??

BTW - I understand Bachmann raised a million dollars for her campaign last month! Now isn't that something. It is not only the bigots in politics - it is also the bigots and fools who support them!

Here we have an American citizen just trying to work to support her party of choice and that party ended up ripping her off and leaving her life and reputation in ruins.

Warning to us all, I say!!!!!!

A view from across the pond : The more I hear from Eric Cantor and Michelle Bachmann, the more I am convinced that it is they who are the real problem in America. I expect Michelle thinks the "Flint Stones" is a documentary. It is truly frightening to think that this "Lady" sits on your House Intelligence Committee.

When you support the likes of Bachmann and Huckabee, you deserve the santorum storm that follows.

michelle and her camp complain about BIG government BUT her income, her husband's medicaid billing practice for COUNSELING Gays on how to change their stripes, her famillies dependence on AGRICULTURAL SUBSIDIES FOR NOT GROWING ANYTHING ON THEIR SO CALLED FARM, her government salary, looks like her family is totally being suckled by the Government and the 99 percent of the folks who pay most of the taxes and now we find out that she got to all the religious right by having someone hack this women's data base!!! WOW

I just saw a news clip where she said "Government does not create jobs, the private sector does". So, I am wondering since the private sector is and has been doing so well, where are the Jobs?

This lady should be investigated. Something is clearly wrong with her. She and Cantor are very dangerous to this Country. They are willing to play the fearmonger card in order to advance their political career. They are using light headed Americans who are fed a diet of hate and fear by FoxNews. Bachmann and Cantor should be voted out of office this year. Usually the person screaming communist, or brotherhood the loudest, is the guilty person. If she was so pro-America, she would not have applied for and received citizenship in another country. I hope she and Cantor will be voted out.

abcstarfox, This is how misinformation is spread. Michelle Bachman is not applying for Swiss citizenship. Up until recently,she had dual Swiss citizenship which she acquired through marriage,her husband has Swiss and American citizenship. When this came out in the press,she immediately renounced her Swiss citizenship to placate her Tea Party constituency. I am no Bachman fan,but,those are the facts. My opinion of Bachman? Either she has severe psychiatric problems or she is crazy like a fox. In either case,I think SHE presents the danger to this country and I hope the voters in her district come to their senses and vote her out of office.

That is what's wrong with America - too many children being brainwashed by people who 1) aren't trained to teach, 2) have stilted views about government, social mores, and religion, and 3) don't have the capabilities to make INFORMED decisions because they too have been stuck in the home schooled TIME WARP that ravages the brains in this country way too much! All of these people are dealing with a half deck because either they were home schooled with the same attitudes, or they were "educated" in schools where it was permissable to use unapproved history books that falsely reported the correct history of this country! These people are doing a bigger diservice to this country than any government! Thus the tea party was formed, and has way too much influence over the thoughts and feelings of too many UNINFORMED Americans!

In defense of home-schooling, not all who home-school are the Duggars. I chose to home school my two children through one year of high school because they were not being challenged. They were getting As on papers that my teachers would have made me rewrite. So I home-schooled them for a year. My son went back to high school because he "would rather have 6 teachers for 6 subjects who at least cut him some slack than me for 6 subjects because I was too tough." He did learn to think rather than regurgitate and we have some wonderful conversations now. My daughter opted to get her GED and go to work full-time.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not picking on ALL charter, private, and home schooled people. I commend you for helping your children be better students. I had to do some of that with mine for the same reasons.
 
I just personally know some and their reasons. I know some who are escaping for various reasons. I know some who are in denial and refuse to work with the real problems their children have. I'm talking about these extreme people who think like the Jarod Laughners and that Wade guy. Or some of these EXTREME evangelicals. I'm talking about those who want to shove their ideas, feelings, and opinions down everyone else's throats while they take their rights while stealing everyone else's rights  and claiming others are stealing their freedoms.
