No. 152 – September 30, 2012

THE FINAL SOLUTION

THE ESSENCE OF TEACHING

Albert Einstein once remarked that, “A good teacher is one who can make a difficult subject easy for his students to understand.”

Having taught for over a quarter century – in Japan, China and as  part-time educational advisor in Panama – I am always surprised at how easy it is to teach – if you take your time, present the contents of your subject in a logical manner – and then entertain any questions that the students might have.

The concept of asking questions, of debate and dialog, of freedom of speech have led to some of the best teaching experiences that I have ever had.  Every year, students in Japan would literally line up outside my door, trying to get in to register for the coming academic year.  It was humbling to see so many young kids wanting to actually learn – not just be taught to.

Out of my teaching career, I enjoyed it so much that I did not miss one class of teaching for any reason whatsoever.  It is a record that I am extremely proud of – and can be verified to this very day.

In the meantime, I am still in contact with a number of my students and enjoy corresponding with them all the time.  It is a very satisfying feeling to know that so many past students still wish to keep in touch.  That is my most cherished memory of my teaching career.

“All good teachers get paid in smiles.”

I say all this not to pat myself on the back.  Far from it.  All good teachers have the same feeling of duty, dedication – and  responsibility to their students.

However, my purpose is much deeper this time around.

For the last three issues of The American Telegraph, I have tried to lay out a scenario that most people are too afraid to even speak about.

I first laid out my position, then followed by citing stated facts by reputable sources.

In this concluding issue, entitled THE FINAL SOLUTION, I will allow the following video to make my closing argument.  It is said that a picture is worth a 1,000 words.  I believe this video pays tribute to that statement.

I thank my brother, David Klepinger, for sending me this video to complete this final segment.

Every Democrat, Republican, Independent – in essence, all Good Americans – should take heed as to what is going on right in front of our very faces.  Wake up.  Don’t do as the Austrians did with their Democracy on the eve of World War II.

Wake up, America – before it is too late.

    Larry,

    Thanks for the honorable mention. Honestly, all I did was watch a very compelling video that was sent to me by one of my Facebook friends and decide to forward it to you just to get your opinion. Obviously, it had as much of a profound effect on you as it did on me. I hope everyone will watch it. The key point is that the people in the video were mostly supportive of Obama in 2008 but have come to grips with reality through the knowledge they have gained just in regard to this administration’s handling of foreign policy, which is scary to say the least. “Peace through strength” simply does not apply to this president, and that is just unacceptable.

    As I hear from many, and also read Mr. Klepinger’s Newsletters, I find a very profound meaing in all I read. But yet I get the sense the Mr. Obama has a hidden agenda that is not fully visable on the surface.

    Therefore, people do not see, hear, or get what is really going on with this administration. A little good, as it may seem, to keep things like Obamacare on the surface to say how he is taking care of us, but, yet, there is all these another stories like the video in this newsletter that tell you much more about what this guy (Obama) is doing, to me, under the table. WHY?

    And our media units do not even find this worth reporting!!!

    As I talk to some folks and ask if they are for Obama, I got a response from a black friend that said: I don’t like Obama, but he is the better choice of two evils of candidates. His explanation tells me he doesn’t understand what really is going on; even though he was a ranking Air Force office during both the Desert Storm and the Iraq invasion. Smart about what is over there because he has been there, but today he impressed me that he did not understand about any type of agenda towards Muslim rule.

    I don’t know what people see or hear, but I do know that Mr. Klepinger does not speak or write with forked tongue; he speaks and writes with knowledge and information to back up his words.

    It scares me that our country men think more of what they see and hear rather than know the facts and the truth.

    The upcoming debate will not even get into this issue, I’ll bet Obama will us his Oratory skills rathat than speak with truth morals about the world situation, let alone what needs to be done here in the USA.

    A vote against an incumbant is a vote for a change, YES!! A vote for an incumbant is for more of the the same and who knows what. As far as an incumbant President, the individual does not have to when friends and influence people during the second term, only make a good impression for the party…..Look out, her comes Hilary…DAM!!

    Larry we appreciate your comments and experiences as a teacher and in different countries as well. Some of my fondest memories and best examples as well as most admired were teachers that I had throughout my school years. And they without a doubt are the one that have had the the greatest impact on my life other than my parents, close family and the church leaders.

    And special thanks to your brother David for that video that was very well done,interesting and informative. So much that we need to be aware of and reminded of.

    Keep up the good work of informing and alerting.

    Billy Joe & Maria
