This is crazy. This is out of control. I hope more people learn about homeschooling and its advantage. One advantage is, there is no push to have my child learn all of the points of view out there, equally. Here are some examples:
I came across this. I have not been doing this but I will from now on. I do think it is important. I remember teaching one of my kids to do this when someone at school reacted to being hugged by my child.
Chileans always hug. It happens constantly. Everyone hugs everyone. Sister missionaries only hug the girls and women, of course. There is always a hug goodbye for everyone in the room (or for sister missionaries, for every girl or woman in the room).
Now I am not in Chile. I am in the U.S.A. I need to remember to ask permission. It is a good way for kids to know that they get to give or not give permission. This will help prevent kids from being groomed by sexual predators by using physical touch.
I am very compassionate, but I need to first feel compassion and then ask the person if he or she would like a hug. On a personal self-note, I must not hug someone if I feel uncomfortable with it. I must say that I do not want a hug, and move away. I must stand up for myself.
So must you. If you feel uncomfortable with any physical touch, you must stand up for yourself and tell them you do not like it. If you feel comfortable with it but it it is inappropriate, then you should still tell them to stop. If your conscience pricks you or your gut instinct says it is not good, listen to that instinct or conscience. Trust that feeling and say no.
Always Ask Permission to Give Someone a Hug
Last night at the Roy Library, I was at battle, a soldier in that war on U.S. Sovereignty and Freedom. I attended the Roy Visioning Meeting. According to our Roy city council member, Robert Dandoy, who was in attendance, Roy is the third largest city in Davis and Weber Counties combined. The largest is Ogden. The second largest (and my beloved home town) is Layton. Based on web searches, Roy appears to be the third city in these two large counties to have a visioning meeting. Which cities are next?
I went to the meeting. I did not feel listened to. The Wasatch Front Regional Council is not an elected body. An ICLEI visioning meeting is not done via a representative government. It is a regional government all about taxation without representation and tyranny, so what can one expect?
The Next Workshop
The next workshop will also be at the Roy Library. It will be on January 25, 2017. I assume it will also be at 6:00 p.m. Please come and defend our freedoms by alerting the people around you, the city officials, the city council and the city employees, that there are more than one of us who wants to keep U.S. freedom and sovereignty intact! They do not even care whether you live in Roy. Anyone who lives anywhere can “vote.”
Multiple Choice “Clicker” Voting
One of the battles was after the beginning presentation (slide presentation), in which people who are not asked to show any identification are given a clicker which allows them to vote on one of seven choices. Which of these seven sustainability, re-development and economic development items do you care about most for your city?
We citizens of these United States of America have been given multiple choice questions so many times in our public schools that we think that it is completely fine, normal and acceptable for our voice to be limited to seven choices. Isn’t brainstorming the best way to come up with the best ideas?
I apologize for this exhausting list, but I have to make my point because this point is extremely important to our understanding and the preservation of what liberties and freedoms we have left still.
- Was the 1100 Charter of Liberties (Henry I) written based upon a door-to-door survey in the early medieval towns?
- Was the Magna Carta written based upon a multiple choice door-to-door survey?
- Was Don Quijote written by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra after discovering things political and social via a multiple choice survey of Spain’s residents? [I am Bilingual. This link is Spanish.]
- Were Shakespeare’s Plays written after a multiple choice questionnaire discovered how most people act, think and feel?
- Was Thomas Edison’s Team able to come up with a working lightbulb via multiple choice questionnaire?
- Did Christopher Columbus’ Journey to the Americas occur because of a multiple choice questionnaire? [I am Bilingual. This link is Spanish.]
- Was the Revolutionary War won led by George Washington because he had surveyed residents via a multiple choice questionnaire before each battle?
- Did a multiple choice questionnaire help in the writing of the U.S. Constitution, (First ten amendments) the Bill of Rights, and the Articles of the Constitution?
The Founding Fathers of our great and exceptional *SOVEREIGN nation would be appalled that we think this is how decisions about our own city should be made. Virginia citizens definitely would not have ever let Benjamin Franklin, of Pennsylvania, lead a meeting for Virginia with a multiple choice question format designed supposedly to give Virginia citizens a vote about building large buildings and knocking down whatever is there.
*to learn what sovereign means, read about President Obama telling the UN he wants to give up U.S. Sovereignty.
Attendance at Roy Visioning Workshop I
My best guess is that there were 5 to 7 actual Roy citizens there. There was one guy from UTA. There were 12-14 people from the Wasatch Front Regional Council. (This is an unelected regional council, by the way, a “taxation without representation” entity. UTA is now part of ICLEI because it receives ICLEI money. (As is my city).
Roy’s City Manager kept repeating that there is web address (with Survey Monkey) so that people can give input online. Although I took the survey, inputting that the most important thing about Roy city to me is the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights and other similar things, I do not think the survey is important for anyone to take. The workshop and the survey are to placate the people (and the city council, city officials and employees) so that they think the citizens of Roy have had a voice, when in reality, no Roy citizen will ever have a voice in this. The voices were “heard” in December of 1989 (More on this later in the post). None of these ICLEI visioning meetings in any group of professionals or in any city or county or state, is local. It is all part of the International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives, headquartered in Bonn, Germany. Yes, indeed. It is a foreign attack from within. The battle front of this war is right in our very own city council meetings and city visioning workshops.
The Purpose of the Roy Visioning Workshops
The final presenter, who closed the beginning portion of the meeting, said in answer to a question of mine,
“Our purpose here tonight is to make you feel like you were listened to, so that you can leave here and tell your friends, ‘I was there, and they listened to me.’ “
He meant that literally; He was for real; He was telling the truth. He truly meant to say “FEEL LIKE you were listened to” instead of “Our purpose tonight is to listen to you and take into account your input.” In reality, nothing that any of us who are real Roy residents have said or will ever say to the Wasatch Front Regional Council will ever be taken into account in any way. Literally, the true purpose of all ICLEI visioning meetings is for us to be convinced that we have been listened to and for us to say to others around us, “I was there. They listened to me. I gave my input.”
This is called the Delphi Technique. The objective is to convince people they have been listened to when they have not been listened to at all.
The purpose of doing THAT is to make it so that our transition into membership in a Regional, Fully Taxed, No-Representation Government will happen with no protests or knowledge by the public, whatsoever.
James Otis, U.S. Politician and Patriot, said, “Taxation without representation is tyranny!”
The Mapping Activity Portion of Roy Visioning Workshop I
The man with white hair and glasses at my mapping table opened with, “As a lifetime citizen of Roy, …” when the mapping activity began. I am sure he did this on purpose and for emphasis, but he was lying. When I asked, “What is the name of that burger place that is always crowded, which is on this corner, here?” He said NOTHING. If you are reading this and are going to be going to your own city’s visioning meeting, try that one on them. Ask about a local place pretty much everyone knows about. See what they know. If they know nothing, you’ve got ’em! I grew up Layton and I am a VEGAN. I know about the Burger Bar. He was supposedly a “lifetime Roy Resident” and had no clue. The Burger Bar has a sign that says they have been open 40 years. It was featured on the T.V. show, “Drives and Dives” because it is so popular and exceptional (though not for a vegan). This man looked to be in his mid-60s, with white hair. Is he really expecting anyone in the meeting to believe he is a lifetime resident of Roy? I had no idea that the people brought in to “act” like they are part of the city would outright lie. This meeting is more like dinner mystery theater than anything. One has to figure out who is acting and who is for real (not lying). The whole time, you have to figure our who is a real Roy citizen and who is a planted helper of the ICLEI group, which in this case has its local offices in Salt Lake City.
This man with white hair kept trying to add mixed use buildings everywhere. He kept saying, “I think this would be a nice place for a mixed use building.” Mixed use is a new term which was not used before all this Sustainable Redevelopment started. Here are examples of mixed use development zoned areas in Ogden, Utah, which you are probably familiar with.
Here is an excerpt, a list, from this web site, Bye, Bye, Blue Sky, of buzzwords which should alert you that what they are talking about is Agenda 21 (You should definitely click on that link and watch that video). Scroll down to the “M” words and you will see “Mixed Use Development.” I have marked all of the words used in last night’s meeting in bold.

(Another is “bikable.” The one used at my meeting was just “bicycle lane.” They talked much bout bicycle lanes being wider. They said “increase the biking easement so that the bike can take up a whole lane.” Most people know that very few bikers are ever there and most are driving in cars. The road for vehicles needs to be wider. You will know it is Agenda 21 and the Sustainability movement when they keep pushing biking over driving. I used to bike to work when I was a teen. I get it. However, the bike lanes should only be pushed if they are needed. They should not be pushed JUST BECAUSE of the green movement (which is ICLEI).
During the mapping activity, I was told not to worry about any of my worries because it would be rezoned and they would shape the laws so that this building can go there and nothing else would be allowed to be there because anything else would be against the planning codes. What they meant was that the filthy Agenda 21 Land Use Policies would become the local laws because of the acceptance of a grant by our city council. That was literal, too. That, I know, was them telling the truth. They really will change the building codes and zoning codes so that certain things are not allowed and other things are. I know that on Roy’s web site, it mentions that things must be approved or disputed by talking with the person in charge of planning.
See this document on Roy City’s web site, which says “Land Use Maps Consistency Required.” See this current Future Land Use Map of Roy, here on Roy’s web site.
Watch this Must-See Video made for Land Use Planners, featuring Meg Ryan, (Fascist-NWO-lover, not actress). Its purpose is to teach them how to do their jobs. It is very scary and creepy! Utah professionals who could possibly be unaware of ICLEI’s existence and even of Agenda 21, are employed in Utah as “Land Use Planners.”
At one time during the mapping, I was told none of the decisions we made on this map were real, so we should just do what we want with this map. They said it was just for us to dream and imagine, to envision. I know that is true. They definitely will not take into account any of what we said.
At the mapping activity, I protested, saying there were homes here, and what are the people living in them going to do? One of them said to me, “You have to imagine there was a big earthquake and the whole city was destroyed. What would you do then?” When I told my husband about that, he thought this was a scary meeting. It was, as are all of these ICLEI visioning meetings for cities across the U.S. of A. They want to play God. They want us to relish in playing God ourselves. Awful!
What Agenda 21 (Official Global Document) Says About Economic Development
In case any of you believe this future planning, re-zoning and re-development of our city will improve our city’s economy, I assure you that I have read enough to know that its purpose is to destroy our economy in the U.S. of A. Let me tell you something about what we all agreed to December 22, 1989. I know we all agreed to it because it says, “It reflects a global consensus,” (Agenda 21, Section 1.2).
Agenda 21 Quotes about the Economies of the World:
Section 1.4: “Agenda 21 will require a substantial flow of new and additional financial resources to developing countries.” (Wealth will be moved From wealthy countries to poorer ones. Understand, this means monies will FLOW from the U.S. of A. and all first world countries.)
Section 1.5 : “economies in transition,” (In transition from wealth to the standard globally communist poverty or poverty to the standard globally communist wealth, depending upon where the country starts. All countries will be at the same economic level. That is the goal.)
Section 2.5: “an open, equitable, secure, non-discriminatory and predictable multilateral trading system that is consistent with…optimal distribution of global production…comparative advantage…improved market access for developing countries’ exports.” (A predictable TRADING SYSTEM?!?!) My Uncle Steven would get a kick out of the idea of predictable gambling in Wendover. What say you? Here, here! Lol! “Improved market access for developing countries’ exports” means decreased market access for first world countries.
Section 2.6: “effective and predictable public administration…
“…progress toward democratic government (ours is a Constitutional Republic. Note the U.S. Constitution and the Pledge of Allegiance).
Section 2.7: “tariff and non-tariff impediments…
…limiting their access to export markets. (This means global U.N. laws limiting the exports of first world countries.)
“The removal of existing distortions in international trade…
“…substantial and progressive reduction in the support and protection of agriculture…” [Substantial means we will notice because it will be a huge difference. Progressive means gradually brought on so that nobody will protest because nobody will notice. (Progressive means we will be like the frog in the pot, when the water starts out cold and gets increasingly hotter. The frog dies, having always said he would get out when it got too hot.)]
“…in order to avoid inflicting large losses on the more efficient producers, especially in developing countries.” (All of the above is for the purpose of making the third world countries come up to the level of the first world countries, at the expense of the first world countries.
Section 2.8: “…the expansion of world trade has continued to grow faster than world output in recent years. However, the expansion of world trade has been unevenly spread, and only a limited number of developing countries have been capable of achieving appreciable growth in their exports….affecting particularly the export interests of developing countries.” [In 1989, fairness was too uneven in the world. It was not a communist world. That, we considered a bad thing. I say we, because, as you can see from section 1.4, we all agreed to this in 1989. (There was a global CONSENSUS).]
The meaning of this Agenda 21 plan made in 1989 (Agenda 21 meaning agenda for the 21st century) is for wealthy countries to let their economic advantages go out the window in order to help developing countries bring their economies to the same level as that of the U.S. and for one Communist Wold Government with taxation but no representation. It also says they will make agricultural laws which will hinder agricultural production in the U.S. and help agricultural production in developing countries. It says there will possibly be a lack of tariff impediments. What I read here is, the developing countries will get to export to the U.S. so that we, who have restrictions on agricultural production, will be forced to either starve or buy food from developing countries to bring up their economies at the expense of ours.
One of the means of bringing the U.S, economy to the level of the economies of all other countries so that we live in one big communist governed world, is this whole REDEVELOPMENT trick they are pulling on us via this Wasatch Front Regional Council. The plan is to destroy Roy’s economy.

I interviewed my daughter about how she feels about preparing for and taking the tests. These are the things she said, made into full sentences by me so that you may have a clear understanding. We do not usually take any tests in our homeschool, just so you understand a little in that way.****************
I don’t like the idea of preparing for or taking tests by reading the CLEP and DSST books. I feel bored taking practice tests and studying for the tests in the books.
I like the Great Courses Western Civilizatons I DVD’s. The guy is exciting. I do not feel like I am preparing for a test when I watch the DVD’s. Anything fun does not make me feel like I am preparing for a test.
I partially feel I am preparing for the Public Speaking DSST test when I go to my Speech and Debate Class. My teacher is a really good teacher and teaches me a lot of stuff and I learn how to make speeches and go to tournaments.
The flash cards are kind of hard to memorize because some of them are kind of long. The short answer flash cards are easier.
The test at $80 plus $20 fee for proctor sounds expensive. I am worried I will not pass and it will be a waste of my mom’s money. I would feel bored taking the test because it is super boring. I am worried I will not know very many of the answers.

A police officer told me about how one of the guidelines widely shared with children for getting lost, is wrong! Many parents tell their kids, “Look for an employee, security guard, or police officer,” or they tell their kids, “look for a mom or grandma with kids.”
The officer told me if your child is lost, he or she should find the first adult he sees and say, “I am lost. Please help me find my (guardian).” He said they have found that the worst state for a lost child to be in is one wherein the child has a lost puppy look on his or her face and is crying, frustrated because he or she cannot find a “security person” or “police officer.” Likewise, looking specifically for “a mom or a grandma with kids” is almost as tough. What if that day your child gets lost is a day when you are at a store where mostly men shop? What if the day your child gets lost is a day wherein every child is in school and the people there are just senior citizens walking around shopping?
It is best for the first person the child sees to aid the child in getting to the police officer, employee or security person. This way, the child feels confident immediately and can likely find you faster. The child is with an adult and is not afraid, crying and frustrated. This officer told me that 99% of the time, the first person the child sees will be a good person who would never harm a child. He said, if the child looks like a scared puppy and is crying, he or she will be lost for a longer time and, refusing to talk to strangers that would help, will have a greater chance of being spotted by a bad person with ill-intent. THAT person will be good at gaining the trust of the child because he or she is skilled and practiced. However, the child’s confidence in that person will be mal-placed.
I think if your child has a photo of you and your name with him or her, that will increase the speed at which you will be found again. I also like to snap a photo of each of my kids when we go to a crowded place. That way, if my child becomes lost, I have a photo to show people and say, “Have you seen this child?” Sometimes people ask, “What was he wearing?” You should be able to pull uo your cell ohone with the photo so they cna immediately have a visual of what he was wearing. As a mother of a larger family, I have lost my kids a few times. Every time, (with the help of prayer, my family and others) I find them within a couple minutes. This is relieving. By way of note, the child I find has not felt lost yet and is just enjoying life. It really takes quite some time for a child to look around and realize he or she cannot see mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, aunt or uncle.
One thing a parent should keep in mind when not being able to spot a child is that the parent must not be embarrassed to tell other parents around him or her. If I were embarrassed, I would not enlist immediate help from others and this would slow the time in finding my child. If you are shouting your child’s name, other people around you will immediately offer help in finding your lost child. If you are in a place like a playplace for kids with employees, the employees will all help together and more quickly. After all, they do not want their place to have a bad reputation.
One time, we wereat Boondocks. I could not see my daughter. I am always looking around making sure I can see all my kids. I immediately told my family and started calling her name. A very young man asked me what she looked like and began looking. I found an employee and told her. She had a walkie talkie and told the security guard in the watchroom, who could see the whole place with cameras. Befor the team of employees could even get started, the first young man I mentioned had found her. It was wonderful of him. I am forever grateful. I hope God blessed him for it!
It is a beautiful thing. People do not want a child to get lost or hurt. They will help quickly. I love that about people!
God bless you never to lose your child for over 2 minutes! (Because losing your child at all will be a common thing).

Oh, my. Good piece! Georgia county refuses federal funds for Sustainability! Balanced neighborhoods are the aim. ICLEI and Agenda 21 are all about control. The means is the changing of U.S. Laws and BRIBERY with MONEY. What will you do for federal cash? Will you give up freedom? Will you accept FASCISM?
The means for moving into fascism is bribery with money. It is federal law changes and communities taking federal monies for improvement and development. HUD enforcement is one of the things they are doing. Another is to combine transportation and housing improvement into one category when the senate gives out money. With that, they have new laws which make sure there are certain percentages making this much money and certain percentages making that much money, in each neighborhood, for economic balance in every neighborhood. There wil be an end to rich neighborhoods and poor neighborhoods and even middle class ones. They will all be federally balanced neighborhoods. Not only that, but if there are already enough people of one race in a neighborhood, they will not let someone new of that race come in. The cities are bound to this by contract if they take the federal monies to improve their neighborhoods.
