Leading one to believe even more that Obama and a host of his company of fools really might be traitors.

Anti-homeschooling bigots strike again

Please tell me this commentary is really from eight years ago! I just saw it this morning in a footnote in another related commentary. But even if it's a reprint and just came out again yesterday, the fact that no one has commented suggests a lot of people either don't care about homeschooling being maligned or people aren't paying attention. Frankly, I think many Christians (who themselves have been well indoctrinated in the public schools--and churches, too) are quite ready to believe the kind of propaganda Michele is warning about here. The secularists are winning the battle for the mind!
"...surrender their business..."? I recommend not surrendering it, nor paying what amounts to a mafia like "insurance" against the Mob torching their property. The "Mob" in this case is a tyrannical federal agency. The Founders dumped tea in the harbor, and we pay lip service to their courage and wisdom. If we don't exercise our liberty, it could be we simply don't deserve to keep it.....
This is another sad, but maddening example of what America has come to. Most people are oblivious, and, as long as this kind of thing happens to other people and not us, we are inclined to think things are not so bad, or just fine. The norm now is to look the other way, or, if confronted with stories like this, to make some excuse for such abuses of power. We don't want to be bothered with the question, "What can I/we do to change or stop this?"
Look at Ali now and tell me "rope-a-dope" was successful. Anybody putting much hope in the "democratic process" these days (and encouraging others to do so) should be carefully watched but not followed or taken too seriously....

John Roberts Is a Super-Taxer

Yeah and Roberts is a "conservative", right? Maybe this S.C. decision will wake more folks up, especially so-called "Conservatives". I mean, that John Roberts is on the court at all is NOT because of a "liberal" president's nomination, or huge "Liberal" support for him. This "Conservative" Chief Justice has now put his stamp of approval on another increase of the power of the federal government to TAKE, uh, er, TAX, I meant to say...but really, when it comes down to it, TAX and TAKE can mean the same thing....sort of like "Liberal" and "Conservative" now seem to. All this could be described as lunacy. It makes no sense, and apparently doesn't have to, especially to those bent on maintaining their hold on power.

Thanks for admitting that it's "almost official". I hope people notice and ask themselves what you mean by "almost" and "official", because we're (this country) getting carefully managed "facts" about Romney and who would really begin the necessary changes to our federal Nanny State....

Geithner Goes Over the Edge

Well, if Hubbard was one of GW Bush's advisors--given the deflated ball he handed Obama, maybe he could be described as a "hack", but then who is Geithner to cast such aspersions? These guys are all in bed with one another, or at least drinking buddies away from the lights and cameras...
