Try to do these problems without a calculator….
On November 22, 1889, Gertrude Jones of Tennyson, Indiana penciled her name into her copy of Complete Arithmetic, a math curriculum book in use at the time. In 2016, the book is now in my possession. It smells delightful, if you’re into old books. Continue reading
Questions dealt with values of slaves versus white people
KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (WBTV) – The Kannapolis City School System has apologized to a parent after a child was given a homework assignment that the system says was inappropriate.
The parent posted the assignment on social media. It was given out by a teacher at Kannapolis Middle School. A section on the assignment asked students to compare the values of slaves with white people. Continue reading
“The leaders of the revolution are America’s homeschooling mothers,” said C. Bradley Thompson, professor of political science professor at Clemson University and author of America’s Revolutionary Mind: A Moral History of the American Revolution and the Declaration That Defined It, expressing his concerns of deepening national political fragmentation in a Tuesday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.

The progressive campus project is a mere veneer. It is a scab of sorts, overlaying a wound beneath of progressive exploitation and class privileges and hierarchies.
Today’s university students want to “wake” the nation to problems that they and their professors have identified as threatening our very existence. And they issue these periodic alarms in hyperbolic terms: we have just 10, 20 – fill in the blanks – years to end fossil fuel use or else die from global warming. Continue reading
For many progressives, the issue is clear: Americans hold conflicting views about what it means to be American; something must change lest the nation be torn asunder; inaction can trigger a massive civil war. Of course, history is neither as deterministic nor as simplistic as the left makes it out to be.
The influential left-leaning magazine The Atlantic just released a special issue highlighting America’s polarization. It is meant to shock a deeply divided nation struggling to stay together. “How to Stop a Civil War” is the menacing cover story. “How America Ends” is yet another ominous title among others that analyze the nation’s grave internal crisis.

Caution: The following article contains a video that may be deeply disturbing to some viewers.
If we’ve learned anything from years of sharing the truth about the leftist agenda, it’s that there is no bottom floor. Every time we think we’ve uncovered the sickest depths of depravity, something more vile and heinous soon proves us wrong. Continue reading
As if LEGOs weren’t enough of an awesome childhood toy, one teacher has found another awesome educational/developmental use for this super-toy – as a math education aid! Alycia Zimmerman, a 3rd-grade teacher in New York, uses them to explain fractions, squares and other mathematical concepts. Continue reading
There have been three central banks in our nation’s history. The first two, while deceptive and fraudulent, pale in comparison to the scope and size of the fraud being perpetrated by our current FED. What they all have in common is an insidious practice known as “fractional bankiing.”
The Birth of Legal Counterfeiting
“If I were a rich man, Daidle deedle daidle, Daidle daidle deedle daidle dumb…”
The FED is a central bank. Central banks are supposed to implement a country’s fiscal policies. They monitor commercial banks to ensure that they maintain sufficient assets, like cash, so as to remain solvent and stable.
Central banks also do business, such as currency exchanges and gold transactions, with other central banks.
In theory, a central bank should be good for a country, and they might be if it wasn’t for the fact that they are not owned or controlled by the government of the country they are serving. Private central banks, including our FED, operate not in the interest of the public good but for profit… Continue reading
If you truly knew your history, this flag would not offend you…
…but this flag would.
Every so often I will go somewhere and someone will see the tattoo on my right arm and scowl at me, or say some derogatory comment about it. When they do that it doesn’t bother me, at least not personally; I can take pretty much any shit that someone heaps upon me. What bothers me is the fact that they believe the lie that the Confederate Battle Flag represents prejudice and racism, and that the Civil War was fought over slavery.
Far too many people in this country allow their ideas to be formed by watching some documentary, listening to some instructor, or by reading some book about whatever subject that interests them regarding a historical event… Continue reading
I recently read an article by Michael Snyder of The End of The American Dream blog, which grabbed my attention because I have recently done a few articles on public education for my Revised History blog spot. All things considered, I felt it was about time to do another one for The Copperhead Chronicle blog, and what more important issue to do one on than what passes for education in this country. Many may feel I have been beating a dead horse regarding the education issue, but Mr. Snyder’s article should show folks that this is one horse that needs to be beaten, and it will also show that I am not the only one that feels this way.

… so You Bigoted Parents Just Shut Up And Sit Down!
The title of this article is a sentiment often expressed by those who are part of the public education Establishment. They look down their overly-educated noses at those deplorable parents and feel their agenda for the kids entrusted to their tender mercies is much more important than the wishes and desires of the parents. After all, they are the change agents, put in place to change the morals and attitudes of students into something their parents will no longer even recognize.
A glaring example of this change agent attitude in living color has recently taken place at a high school in or near Conroe, Texas. I would have expected something like this in New York, Illinois, or Commiefornia – but in Texas of all places. Continue reading
… Common Qur’an-Uption
January 24, 2018 ~ The Thomas More Law Center (“TMLC”), a national nonprofit public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, filed a federal lawsuit yesterday evening in the New Jersey District Court against several officials and teachers of the Chatham Middle School and the School District of the Chathams, located in New Jersey.

According to the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation’s (VOC) fourth “Annual Report on US Attitudes Toward Socialism, Communism, and Collectivism,” today’s youth is quite fond of political-economic systems that have resulted in more than 100 million deaths over the past century. At the same time, these misguided youths are increasingly hostile toward the political-economic system that has lifted countless millions more out of abject poverty over the same period.

The downfall of Society…
What a normal human being often fails to see in light of everyday struggles and strife, of political upheaval, of commitment to false national pride, is the unbelievable majesty of life. In order to discover this singularly unique beauty, love must be present, but love alone cannot sustain the tragedy of life that is the division consuming the human mind, body, and spirit today. Intelligent thought is necessary. The destruction of learning, with the inadequate replacement of commonality, has bred by design a society steeped in an ignorance of life, and an unnatural contempt for others. This intentional eradication of individual intellect brought with it a hostile prejudice toward the sanctity of our souls, and left emptiness in its place. Continue reading
Worse yet,… the parents probably PAID for his indoctrination and he’ll blame THEM for all his woes!! ~ Travis McCauley
