This "legislator" is a brand new, foolish politician. She thinks she
has found a way to further her career by infringing on people's freedoms.
The woman that murdered her children is a murderer.
(Sounds obvious I know - but some people think she was "homeschooler". I
just want to clarify the difference between a "murderous piece of crap"
and a "homeschooling parent".) She murdered her children and stuck them
in a freezer. I am a homeschooling parent. I have never once murdered
my kids and stuck them in a freezer.
If you think that forcing
families to register with the state will prevent child murder, then
please unfriend me now. Then, go to Google, and ask it how many public
school kids have been murdered by their parents. I'm sure you will find
that there have been no cases at all. Not one. Not a single public
school child has ever been abused or murdered.
As you all know, child abuse only happens between the hours of

abuse." Guess what? It doesn't do a darn thing to protect kids from
I have the state in my house every.single.day. Three
different mandatory reporters are in my house each week. I hate it when I
have to change a therapist or seek new care... What is *their*
definition of adequate care? Cleanliness? A tidy house? Are they
anti-homeschooling? Do they think my kids are suffering from educational
neglect? Will they agree that I know my son best - or will they feel
there is a "better way"?
You cannot regulate stupid. You cannot
regulate evil. What you CAN do however, is make my life (and other hard
working, conscientious parents lives) MUCH harder than it needs to be,
by giving away your freedoms and blowing your nose with the
Stop believing the indoctrination. Stop letting
The Stupid People speak for you. They are YOUR children - even if you
choose to use public school. I know - shocking, right?!
Please - contact Stephanie Chang's office and tell her she's an
idiot. You can pretty it up if you like, but the bottom line is - she's
an idiot who thinks she has found a way to further her career on the
backs of completely innocent people.
