Election ForumCurrent Events, Education, FamilyLeave a Comment

I recently did a controversial interview with Jerry Cirino about COVID and the lockdowns. You can listen to it HERE.

During the interview I discussed the following:

  • The lockdowns are causing a crisis for parents and a tragedy for children today  
  • Today about half the kids are not in school and Zoom has been a failure for most
  • Just look at the statistics in kids aged 13-18 years old:
    • Overdoses have increased 11%
    • Anxiety has gone up 94%
    • Depression has increased 84%
    • Suicide is ten times more likely to occur
  • Parents are experiencing the changes in behaviors because children are so isolated and not interacting with others while they are home
  • The problem is the school boards, along with teachers’ unions that are continually pushing for schools to stay remote
  • These lockdowns have set children back for years to come
  • Teachers unions are promoting a political ideology – especially regarding school choice
  • Public schools teachers are pushing a worldview that is contrary to the principles of freedom, religious liberty, and other principles that have historically been part of America
  • The incompetent and bad teachers cannot be fired in public schools – yet this is not the case in private or Christian schools
  • There is currently a mass exodus of people leaving California
  • When I was younger, California was a land of opportunity – yet today homelessness is a major issue in California as well as violence due to the multitude of gangs
  • Now there are 5.5 businesses per week that are exiting California and millions of people are leaving California because it is not affordable – Nissan, Toyota, and many other companies are relocating due to high costs, high taxes, and high regulatory rates
