The Sorry State of Education in America

schoolsBy J. D. Longstreet
One-room schoolhouses turned out scholars of unequaled accomplishment when compared to today’s graduates. A high school education, just 50 years ago, is the equivalent of a college degree today. Our Public School teachers are barely qualified to teach. But, they have a Union to see that they are paid well, whether the can teach or not! Oh, you thought teachers unions were for the welfare of the students??? Surely you jest!

Carbon and carbon dioxide: Clearing up the confusion

climate-alarmistsBy Paul DriessenWe are frequently told we must reduce carbon emissions, support “carbon disclosure” and invest in “carbon trusts” – to prevent catastrophic global warming, global climate change or global climate “disruption.” News stories, advocacy and lobbying activities, and corporate “ethics” promotions frequently use “carbon” and “carbon dioxide” almost interchangeably; some occasionally talk about “dangerous carbon monoxide emissions.”

Gov. McDonnell Demonstrates Resolve

McDonnellBy Michael R. Shannon
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell provided state and national Republicans with a useful and timely lesson in leadership when he vetoed the redistricting bill last week. Complaints emanating from disgruntled Republican House of Delegates members regarding the veto only serve to highlight their failure to pay attention and exercise leadership on their own behalf.

Lawrence O’Donnel is the Biblically Ignorant One!

odonnel3By Doug Edelman
As he disingenuously besmirches Limbaugh’s biblical expertise, and attempts to respond to Rush Limbaugh’s rhetorical musing, ‘What would Jesus take?’; O’Donnell postulates that Jesus would advocate taking it ALL. And uses the story of the widow’s mite as biblical justification for the progressive income tax!

Mark Twain once quipped, “It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.” This saying was never more true than in the case of Lawrence O’Donnell’s biblical knowledge!

Environmentalism as a surrogate religion

enviro-religionBy Dr. Thomas P. Sheahen
In environmentalism, “Mother Earth” (Gaia the Earth Goddess) replaces God as the object of special devotion, causing some of environmentalism’s subsequent assertions to be in direct opposition to fundamental teachings of Christianity and Judaism. Another cornerstone belief is that mankind is just one species among many; this view opposes the Judeo-Christian belief that God considers mankind to be very special.

The Homage of Reason

Shroud-of-TurinBy Thor H. AsgardsonThe final analysis of the Shroud of Turin by scientific experts, with advanced space age technology, came to the conclusion that the image was formed by the dead man, floating in mid air and the grave cloth arranging itself in a flat pattern, so that an unobstructed photograph could be taken for the edification of mankind.

Scaring Mothers and All Others – The BPA File, Part Four

bpa-babyBy Alan Caruba
The sheer numbers involving plastic bottles should indicate their use is safe. For example, nine billion gallons of bottled water are sold every year in the United States. That’s 50 billion bottles. If they posed a health threat, it would be evident, but they do not, nor do the huge numbers of baby bottles, but expectant and new mothers are repeatedly told they should be avoided, especially by manufacturers who trumpet the news they do not use BPA.

I Fear For My Country

usa-flag-statueBy J. D. Longstreet
There is likely to be a historic internal struggle in America over the next few years to decide the issue of whether America lives or dies. It will be ugly as such struggles always are. The first indication of which form of government Americans really want is likely to come in 2010 when Americans return to the polls. If socialist candidates are thrown out and defeated, there is REAL HOPE

Beyond Our Consent

00-asgardson-4-25By Thor H. Asgardson
The American people of both political parties have chosen Donald Trump, precisely because he will make America’s enemies pay a tariff tax, which will obliterate the need to continue charging the American people exorbitant taxes, as if they were already vassals of the United Nations and serfs in Big Brother’s New World Order.

Budget & Other Deals on Slow Boat to Nowhere

slow-boatBy Michael R. Shannon
One would think a party that’s supposed to be a tool of greedy capitalists under the control of Daddy Warbucks would be capable of analyzing a budget. But evidently Republican leadership is no better at dealing with monetary matters than your average foreclosure participant.
