Muy bueno blog. I'm glad I stumbled upon it--stat counter is such an amazing addiction!

That's ok, Joe. I thought it funny, as you might have realized. Thanks for the chuckle...and a whole post out of it!

My apologies, Dana. I can't exactly recall what post title made me think liberal, but I do remember being wholly surprised that you make a heck of a lot of sense. Now I better understand why that is.

Hmm, maybe he meant "liberal" in the classical sense, rather than the 21st century one, but it's still a bit of a stretch. I do enjoy the Republitarian label, it might describe me as well.

Republitarian...I think I like that one.

And no problem, Melissa. Sometimes I think we have too high of an expectation on our kids because they are homeschooled. And all of us have doubts about parenting, etc., which all come to the forefront with misbehavior.

Even though we KNOW that no child is perfect. Even Adam and Eve strayed in the Garden so how can we expect to somehow raise children who are never an "embarrassment" in public? (Really, just by learning not to be embarrassed by it, I think!)

Gee..I like that freedom and property one. I must be into BPA or something! :) Well, from one staunch conservative to another, I appreciate your kind comment re:art class. You made me feel better! Thanks!

Dana - I would never have imagined you a Liberal.. LOL..
a Republican with Libertarian leanings most definitely.
Actually a Republitarian might be more your description.
And above all else, you are incredibly astute and eloquent, as well as being an amazing student of history.

Love you and love your blog!

Susan--I agree. And you've hit on a topic I've wanted to do a post on for awhile, but I'm not sure how to start it. We all homeschool for our own reasons, generally for the best interests of our children. We may differ on exactly what that means, but it seems that we could agree that the parent is more qualified than the state to determine what is in the best interest of their child in most instances.

Abuse is something different, but it is hardly perpetrated by differing political and religious views.

Thanks, Janne. The poor guy who now has an entire post devoted to him probably got that from the entry he is listed in which contains a fair number of libertarian links. I'm guessing that is where the statement came from, even though I don't necessarily agree with every stance taken by every submission. But my goal isn't so much to prescribe a particular view as much as it is to promote discussion and thought on the subject.

A little home-schooling goes a long ways.Fairly liberal? I've been called a number of things since making an online presence...a liar, the whore of Babylon, a wingnut (how creative), a right wing Christian fundamentalist (which, I suppose is true, but does carry with it a certain negative connotation) and one person accused me of "fake Christian semiotic meditation." That, I think, was the strangest insult I have ever received.

Funny thing is how a lot of those labels come from the homeschooling world. I've always wondered about that; whichever direction it came from. It would seem to me that homeschoolers wouldn't be comfortable with the labeling thing. It is so often inaccurate, let alone; the intended insult aspect.

But to each their own in the homeschooling world. As it should be.

Hmmm. Nope. "Liberal" never would be one of my top choices of things to label you, Dana. ;)
