Riding up front Deja Vu? I hope I spelled it right. I'm sitting here looking at a picture sent to me by a guy I met down at the Rhyolite deal a few weeks back. It is a picture ofa WWII era bomber. A, A-26-C Douglas Attack Bomber to be exact. The gentle- man who sent me this picture is a member of the Confederate Air Force Nevada Wing a group interested in preserving old aircraft. What makes this picture special to me is that way back during my short undistinguished military career which took place fortunately during one of the peaceful times of our times, is that I had the opportunity to ride in one of these aircraft and not in the passenger or bomb bay area. But up in the very front where the nose gunner, Bombardier sat. How this came about was at the time I was stationed up in Alaska and wanted to go on furlough back to my home in upstate New York. Not having much money a condition which still prevails to this day. So what else is new. I had heard that the airforce if they had room would take riders to wherever they had planes going, so I went down to their base and sat around till they had space on one going to the states. The first leg of my journey being in an old DC3 going to Slim Sez by Slim Sirnes Great Falls MT. The old De3 wasn't the swiftest so going across the Cana- dian wilderness was quite a viewing experience especially as this old crate didn't fly over moun- tains but around them. Then I got a series of rides, even a stint in an old flying box car where we flew across the plains with the rear cargo door section open (they couldn't get it to Letters to the Editor Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, April 24, 1997 11 close). Finally getting to St. Louis ,MO. where I had the chance to get on an A-26 Invader heading to upstate NY. I think the pilots had a sense of humor. Telling me sure I could ride with them. But that I would have to ride up front. This was too great an opportunity to turn down especially if your 18 years old. Even now considerably past the 18 year old stage I'd jump at the chance. What they didn't tell me was that they were getting in their flying time and would be practicing low level flying and in general just goofing around. So in the course of our flight we made bombing runs on a lot of small Mideast towns and scared hell out of a lot of motorists. Even flying thru a small thunderstorm. Riding up in the front was a real ball and when we landed they asked me if I enjoyed the ride. I sure did and was all ready to go again. So now you've read of a memory the sight of one of these old planes brought up. Have a good one. Quality Education Let' s talk briefly about the quality and quantity of"educa- tion" which can be obtained from the public schools in Nye County and especially in Pahrump. Last year I had the opportunity to speak with a local teacher. She informed me that the curriculum in the Pahrump schools allots little time and effort to teaching the local young about the Constitution. This discrepancy is very likely one of the critical factors in the dumbing-down of successive gen- erations of Americans in order to facilitate creation of subser- vient citizens (subjects) who are easily manipulated. By this means public servants are promoted as masters more akin to overseers for the New World Order than as our employees. I submit that no matter how good an individual teacher may be, the state and county direct the curriculum. The teacher can be incompetent or brilliant; he or she is not in control of the c.urriculum. Formal physical education and sports probably gets 10,000 times the attention given to the supreme Law of the Land. The curriculum is the detailed material being taught by strict schedule. A teacher who fails to follow,the prescribed curriculum will likely be quickly brought to heel or dis- missed. So, just what is the curriculum? Obviously, it varies from grade to grade and must periodically be modified as time goes by. But how many members of the public have a printed curriculum, or, better yet, how many have critically examined such material and dared to question the 'party line." The amount of codified knowledge which is available to choose from in setting a curriculum increases at virtual geometric rate as time goes by. Consider the amount avail- able to choose from at the time of Thomas Jefferson and then extrapolate the quantity which our more modern and techno- logical era offers. Then add the extraneous pufitical garbage which now permeates the public schools nation-wide. I am very concerned that good truth is being displaced, and not by accident, through the artifices of collective control. "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22 In addition to state and county dictates in curriculum, there are direct or indirect unconstitutional dictates from the fed- eral level. The feds love to trap us all in the spider-web of hunger for a small return of our tax money. And, of course there are strings (of web) attached. Globalist overthrow of the freedom inherent within our Republic has entered the United States at the federal level and is spreading like a cancer of oppression. "Civil authorities who are oppressive do not understand justice." Proverbs 28 Aren't we tired yet of allowing the fox of government oppression to guard the chicken coop? This evil fox doesn't eat the chicks, it clones artificial little brainwasbed foxes out of them. Hurrah for the bome-schoolers! Fair Warning, Bill Ballew, 751-1410 Our Youths Future According to your issue on April 10, Mrs. Terri Miller worked for 13 years to have a teacher investigated for miscon- duct. During these 13 years Mrs. Miller contacted several teachers, superintendents, principals, legal personnel and law enforcement agencies. Do you think the public would care to know some of the names of persons who chose to ignore Mrs, Miller's warn- ings? People who enjoy the way things are and resist change. Perhaps many of us would like to know who finally came to the aid of Mrs. Miller. Those who have a high regard for our youths future. Sincerely, Warren H. Cady Amargosa Valley, NV 0
