ANTI-CHRISTIAN INDOCTRINATION IN THE
On September 7, I spent two hours with Colin Gunn and several of his
colleagues who are producing a film called “IndoctriNation” about the
adverse impact of government schools on generations of children and
parents. The forthcoming film is subtitled, “Public Schools and the
Decline of Christianity in America”.

MANUEL AYAU BROUGHT AUSTRIAN ECONOMICS TO GUATEMALA
More than a decade ago, it was my privilege to be the guest of Manuel
Ayau in Guatemala.
Manuel had run for President of Guatemala, but, most notably in 1971,
he founded the Universidad Francisco Marroquin, which today hosts 2700
students, each of whom is required to study classical economists,
including Frederich Hayek.
Muso, as Manuel was known, was targeted by Marxist assassins. I
recall staying at his home and his use of a remote control starter for
his car, which enabled him to check for bombs.
My friend, Manuel Ayau, has died at the age of 84.

Cuccinelli Supporters Aren’t From ‘Far
To the Editor,
I am a regular reader of Virginia Business, but I was concerned
when I read your article on page 6 of the August edition [Our
View by Publisher Bernie Niemeier: “Who’s running for
governor?”], in which you said, “Cuccinelli does well with the
How do you define “far right”? Is it those of us (a) who oppose
abortion, (b) who favor reducing the size of the federal
government to its constitutional limits, (c) who are totally
committed to the Second Amendment, (d) who oppose special rights
for sodomites, (e) who favor a strong national defense focusing
our territory and population? What makes us “far right”?
How do you define “far left”? Is it those who support the
policies of Barack Obama, including partial-birth abortion, tax
hikes, socialized medicine, etc.?
My hope is that, in the future, you will not characterize the
supporters of Ken Cuccinelli in a pejorative manner.

Americans 'Send Them a Message' to
The Conservative Caucus (TCC) launched today the "Pledge to
Repeal ObamaCare" campaign at
Americans are urged to visit and print the Pledge to Repeal
ObamaCare and get their Senators, Representative and
candidates for the House and Senate to sign the pledge.
Howard Phillips, TCC’s Chairman, announced the new campaign
and the launch of www.SendThemAMessage.com, "This is a vital
step in repealing Obama’s Socialist medicine scheme, to help
keep the pressure on members of Congress to resist the influence
of special interests and liberals in both parties who will be
lobbying to avoid repealing ObamaCare.
Make no mistake, there are many powerful individuals and
companies who will quickly learn how to profit from health care
rationing and other elements of Socialist medicine; they will
fight efforts by Americans to repeal this dangerous scheme."
Mr. Phillips invited Americans to
pass the word to their friends; "As concerned citizens, your
action and that of your friends can make the difference, and I
invite you to visit SendThemAMessage.com now and send ‘them’ a
In conclusion, Mr. Phillips noted the effectiveness of
videoing pledge signing and deliveries, "Under the scrutiny of a
video camera, you may find members of Congress and candidates
more willing to be courageous and sign the pledge to repeal
ObamaCare, than in the quiet of their office with special
interests looking over their shoulder."
The Conservative Caucus (TCC) is a grass roots action
organization, formed in 1974. It was active in opposing the
ObamaCare bill, defeating the SALT II Treaty, repealing the
Catastrophic Coverage Act, blocking the Clinton health-care
takeover, and impeaching President Clinton.

Recently I was asked "If you were going to homeschool your
own children today, what curriculum and method would you
I am, in fact, helping to homeschool four of my
grandchildren, and my method is very simple: a) I share life
experiences with them, b) I give them books to read which I
think are of particular value and importance, c) I ask them to
write reports on each of those books, d) I emphasize vocabulary
and grammar, et cetera. So far, each of them is doing very well
on their College Board tests and college admissions.
My youngest son, Sam, was homeschooled, even while he resided
in his mother’s womb, and he was accepted at every college to
which he applied, including Hampden-Sydney, William and Mary,
Virginia Military Institute, Christendom College, and The
Citadel. In most cases, he was offered scholarships.
We had no fixed curriculum, but we made sure he was well
versed in the Constitution, the Bible, current events, history,
You also ask "If you were going to invest in career education
today, where would you place a bet on demand for the future?
What skills would you develop in order to be a viable worker in
the economy of the future?".
My answer is very simple. There will always be a demand for
integrity, energy, as well as verbal and written communication
Good men are hard to find, and they usually will have no
problem whatsoever in finding suitable opportunities.
Thanks for asking.
