When I was a student of engineering a long time ago, we were required to learn a lot of useless things. Things like Schroedinger (I sure I miss spelled his name but I don’t really care.) equations for black box radiation in a course of chemical thermodynamics. I passed the final exam and never again had a reason […]

We’ve all seen the numbers and they are all bad. With the exception of Switzerland, we spend the most per pupil for their public education. Only 77% of our students actually graduate compared to 90% in western Europe. Standard test scores show our students fairing very poorly compared with their counterparts in other countries. What […]

This article was originally published by Pat Slattery at The Free Market Project on February 22, 2011. Teachers’ Unions Harm Good Teachers I’m basking in the sunlight pouring in on public sector unions in Wisconsin, particularly the teachers’ union.

Two great reads that got me thinking. That is always a sign of danger. First let’s visit A Conservative Teacher, who recently wrote: “Obama’s Transparent Game for America”.

Cheryl Pass of My Tea Party Chronicle has announced that she will be taking a break from blogging, or at least slowing down, to attend to her primary passion, her art. I will very much miss her writings but I do understand and respect her decision. In her announcement, she left a caution to all […]

Holder Jr. said Wednesday that he and President Obama had determined – after an extensive review – that the law’s key section is unconstitutional. “Given that conclusion, the President has […]

Why is the Republican establishment being so timid? Did they not understand the Tea Part’s message? Do they not read the poles that shout that the voters are behind them? Or is it that they don’t really care what the voters want? Why weren’t they more aggressive on spending cuts? Why aren’t they talking about slashing […]

POLITICO has the story. Indiana’s Democrats are taking their que from their counterparts in Wisconsin. Democrats in Indiana’s legislature are said to be fleeing the state Tuesday to block a vote on an anti-union bill, repeating the move used by Wisconsin Democrats to avoid voting on legislation there. Members of the Indiana House are headed […]

Or is this just another conspiracy theory? Frankly, I’m a sceptic. But, in truth, I feel entirely inadequate to make an intelligent opinion over these assertions. At the very least, however, each of us should apply some thought to what is being suggested. LewRockwell.Com carries Ron Holland’s story, “When Only a Good War Will Do”. the primus of […]
