Walk with wise men and you will become wise, but the companion of fools will fare badly. - Proverbs 13:20
We are in a Cultural WAR make no mistake about that. At no time in our lives have our conservative values been so viciously attacked. Our Texas law provides for a State Board of Education to decide for classroom curriculum and textbook content. According to the Texas Education Agency, their mission is to provide leadership, guidance and resources to help schools meet the educational needs of all students. Texas has the reputation as being the strong pillar for conservatives. Our Texas textbooks lead in sales so as our textbooks go so does our nation. Absolutely Obama would love to take our Texas school system and bend it for his own perverted, twisted agenda. The SBOE has held steady and prevailed over the liberal/Socialist agenda that the Texas Freedom Network would like our students to have.
Ken Mercer SBOE member for District 5 has been attacked unmercifully and is fighting to keep his position from his Socialist/Democrat opponent Rebecca Bell-Metereau. Mercer has worked hard for students and parents in the 1.5 million person District. During the 2007-2008 school year he stood with parents and teachers in Austin asking for phonetics to be taught in the classroom. Taxpayer paid lobbyists did not have the decency to listen to the parents and teachers and instead booed them and acted child like by sticking their tongues out. These rude lobbyists then had the audacity to say that Mercer behaved badly for quipping that they should be “spanked” for their behavior. The facts are that Mercer stood by the parents of his district and our conservative values.
Mercer is a project manager for USAA a financial giant serving approximately 7.7 million members throughout the world. The only agenda Mercer has is providing a fair education to all our Texas students focusing on our American exceptionalism. His mild manner is perfect for the hot bed that prevails in some of the SBOE meetings with the ever tempestuous Socialists/Democrats.
His opponent Rebecca Bell-Metereau is a professor of English and Film and directs the Media Studies Minor at Texas State University in San Marcos, in essence a Liberal Professor. Interesting enough is the fact that Bell-Metereau does not mention the book she authored ‘Hollywood-Androgyny’ describing in detail male and female cross dressing and impersonation. She should fit in perfectly with Obama’s Kevin Jennings Safe School Czar. We have more than enough Liberal Professors infiltrating our colleges and universities today. The results are graduates not knowing or understanding our American heritage. Bell-Metereau has been endorsed by the very liberal newspaper the San Antonio Express-News the same one that endorsed Bill White, need I say more. According to the Express-News, she has educated the teachers in our public school classrooms. How scary is that! Bell-Metereau is a former Fulbright scholar which is a government sponsored program that promotes multiculturalism diluting American exceptionalism. She also taught English and American studies in the Peace Corp. I do not condemn these programs but point to the Left leaning agendas they provide to the participants. Peace Corp volunteer Senator Chris Dodd is quoted as saying, “that a great nation should send its people abroad, not to extend its power, not to intimidate its enemies,” and of course the Peace Corp was instrumental in his role in the Senate. This is the kind of company Bell-Metereau keeps. She is pictured below with Organizing for America Lainey Melick who helped Obama get elected. Melick is challenging our very conservative Congressman Lamar Smith in District 21. These two women are supporters of Congressman Lloyd Doggett in District 25 another Socialist/Democrat working to ruin our Texas educational system. By aligning herself with these Socialists/Democrats what can we expect? Birds of a feather fly together my mother always said.
We are now face to face with the voting machine and not until the dust settles the morning of November 3rd will we know the results of our conservative vote. Keep Texas safe, Keep Texas RED, and vote conservative!

Let’s see whether it is the conservative SBOE members or TFN that is outside the mainstream thinking of average Texas parents who love and care about their children.

More than that, because Texas is one of the largest consumers of textbooks in the nation, publishers use these curriculum standards for textbooks that are distributed in nearly every state in the union. Thus, what happens in Texas will impact the nation.
Probably for that reason, a liberal onslaught has been unleashed to try to influence these education standards. An unelected review panel, not the elected members of Texas State Board of Education (SBOE), attempted to push through a number of highly questionable changes to the standards – removing Independence Day, Neil Armstrong, Daniel Boone, and Christopher Columbus – from them. They even dumped Christmas and replaced it with Diwali. You can’t make this stuff up! After a huge outcry from citizens and strong leadership by conservatives on the Texas State Board of Education, each of these changes was reversed.
WASHINGTON, D.C., Sept. 23, 2010 – The Peace Corps welcomed returned Peace Corps volunteer, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), to its headquarters in Washington, D.C., as part of the Loret Miller Ruppe Speaker Series.
“Senator Dodd has been a great friend to Peace Corps and I’m proud that his service overseas has helped shaped his legacy in Congress,” said Director Williams.
“As the Peace Corps approaches its 50th Anniversary, we celebrate one of the most radical ideas I know - that a great nation should send its people abroad, not to extend its power, not to intimidate its enemies, but to build, to dig, to teach, and to ask nothing in return,” said Dodd.
Insider Report: Washington, D.C. – “Texas school children deserve better than this. The Doggett amendment, which was supported by every member of the Texas Democratic delegation, will treat Texas differently than every other state in the union and deprive our schools of $830 million in federal education funding. Texas Democrats in the House of Representatives must take corrective action on this next week. If they don’t, they are authorizing an unelected bureaucrat in the Obama administration to spend Texas tax dollars on schools in other states like California & New York.”
During the House debate over the defense supplemental, Rep. Lloyd Doggett added language to limit Texas’s ability to access the $10 billion in education funds. The Doggett amendment requires the Texas Governor to certify that the state will maintain the FY11 proportion of education funding in the state budget for two subsequent fiscal years. No other state is required to make this certification for the three years total.
