    I’ve only seen his show a few times and each time he seemed to come off as a bit of an asshole. Apparently I underestimated him. He’s a complete asshole. I won’t be watching the show when it airs this Friday. [Tip credit: Tammy]

    Homeschoolers never learn. CBS News, Dr. Phil, The Akron Beacon Jurnal, etc etc etc. None of these institutions give a damn about the people they are using. They care about ratings and money. Extremism sells, mainstreamism doesn’t.

    Being in anyway outside the Mindless Mainstream and applying to appear on the Dr Phil show (or Oprah, or any of their ilk) is like responding to a flier on the wall of the Coliseum: “Christians wanted, apply within.”

    Didn’t Daryl apply to be on the show? And Spunky? And many others?
    One of our local “veteran” families, who own an ISP, volunteered to be on the show. They didn’t get a chance to speak. But their take-away wasn’t quite as upsetting as some of the other personal accounts.

    I wonder, what would Jon Stewart do with a homeschooling “expert” as a guest? Like, Daryl who is a “liberal” homeschooler or our local ISP veterans who are welcoming of all homeschooling families regardless of methods, religion or needs. He’s my last hope of “honest” TV shows. Is that a set up too?

    Dr. Phil is totally repulsive and obviously will exploit any topic or situation. I think he has kids – wonder where they went to school. A person as arrogant as he is is incapable of understanding the sacrifices homeschooling parents make.

    The TV guide does not have the homeschooling episode scheduled for this week. Is that a change?
