Re: “COVID Side Effects: Teen Suicide Attempts Spike

“The more you deny freedom to a population accustomed to freedom in all aspects of life, the greater the mental repercussions. When that population is on the very edge of exploding into the increased freedoms of adulthood granted by achievement of age and education, it is especially hard to accept. The emotional price to pay must seem excruciating to young hormonal teens who are trying to figure out where they fit into life under the best of circumstances. The government mandates and restrictions must have appeared a dark place indeed, and one without an end in sight. It is a sad thing that in the end, all those government mandates were ill-conceived and turned out to be useless as applied to teens.” —California

Re: “North Korean Defector: ‘This Country Is Choosing’ Tyranny

“Perhaps it is time to clean house at our so-called educational institutions. Perhaps it is time to stop the flow of any of our tax money going to support any school that teaches Hate America. Teachers unions are a joke, as they are only interested in fleecing America, not really teaching our children. Grandparents are stepping in to get their great-grandchildren out of the public farce of education and into places that actually teach, not indoctrinate. Not everyone can do that even if they want to because of the cost. Maybe we could start new schools that base tuition on what parents can afford and actually employ teachers who really care about students. Such a novel idea. Get the corrupt government out of ‘educating’ our children.” —Arizona

Re: “Canceling July 4th, Promoting ‘Pride’ and Juneteenth

“Question: Why are Democrats so much better at telling lies than Republicans are at telling the truth? Dems have never supported blacks or black legislation, while Republicans have. Yet LBJ gave them welfare that destroyed the black family, and now everything Dems do is supported by the black community. Trump did more for blacks than Obama, yet they still came out for the mentally defective, Big Guy, quid pro quo, ‘You ain’t black’ Biden.” —Nevada

Re: “Joe Biden’s Cold War Against Our Military

“President Biden’s failure in leadership as the commander-in-chief is just more evidence that his administration is the greatest threat to our nation. His misappropriation of funding our military’s combat readiness while promoting divisive ‘woke education’ programs are a ‘double whammy’ regarding the future security of the U.S.. The prospect of Kamala Harris assuming the commander-in-chief role is even more disconcerting.” —Florida

Re: “Pricing the American Dream Out of Reach

“The Chinese Communist Party has been strategically buying targeted U.S. lands for decades as part of its 100-year plan to dominate the world economy by 2050. This article provides no hint of evidence the CCP is involved in these efforts to buy residential housing. However, I cannot avoid the suspicion the CCP is involved, if not a major player in these efforts. The effect at weakening the U.S. economy is huge. The free market is not free if laws prohibit some investments. However, if families are prevented from ever reaching financial independence, the free market strangles all but the elite.” —Missouri

Re: “Make Fatherhood Great Again

“It is one thing to have wisdom and another to practice it. As you said, Obama spoke at times with wisdom but neglected to see how cause and effect can affect you. Fathers, daddies, mentors, etc. shape their offspring in many ways. If not them, someone else will take their place. One can usually tell by the character of an individual what kind of childhood that person had.” —Oregon

Re: “In Brief: Christianity’s Real Growth Problem

“Keeping up with the Joneses means having two cars, a pool, and Disney World vacations. It’s pretty hard to do that on one income. Also, the culture says women must pursue their own independent life and ‘personal fulfillment’ apart from any man. It’s uncomfortable to be ‘different’ than the prevailing culture, and it’s comfortable to buy into it. The cost is to get the wife in the workforce, have fewer kids, and turn the kids you have over ASAP to the government to mold — such molding, of course, perpetuating the anti-Christian culture. To anyone with their eyes open, it’s obvious that most Christians are actively participating in a plan that is clearly designed to eradicate Christianity and turn out woke, submissive servants of the state.” —Virginia

Re: “In Brief: CRT Is ‘A Religion Without Grace’

“Dr. Bauchum is, of course, correct. It is revealing that Africa has become the one to have to show the United States how spiritually decadent we are. CRT is no more than communism wrapped up in dirty paper, a ‘gift’ not worth opening by a free people.” —North Carolina
