Public Schools and the State’s Omnipotent Bayonet

By George F. Smith

From everything I read you would think we were incapable of solving social problems.

Shootings in schools are happening because of parenting or lack of, and the loose morals we’ve allowed to flourish in the last years. Let’s look back to the past to find the future. Those guidelines and virtues are what made our country great. They CAN And WOULD Do it AGAIN!!
