And just 6 years ago, pundits were writing off the GOP. In 6 years from now, the political winds will likely shift back to the Democrat side. *yawn*

Misreading Jefferson on Church and State

If those were the only context of the separation of church and state, that would be one thing, but you are being intellectually dishonest when you ignore all the other assaults on public square religion by anti-religionists. But the fact is that this fictional separation has been used to attack people for praying and has been used to silence religious people from even speaking about their faiths. It has been used to remove monuments or, unfathomably, to remove a cross from a city's crest. Then there are those who go into full foam-at-the-mouth raving should a Christmas decoration be found in a public office or on public property. As if the presence of such things harms anybody, unlike the hate and intolerance of those who take up lawsuits to have them removed. Those are not the actions of rational and tolerant people - they are the actions of religion-hating zealots. At least have the honesty to admit that reality.
Actually, the name Progressives has a disreputable connotation in American history, since Progressives in the first half of the 20th century expressed support and admiration for Marxism, Communism and fascism. It was this support which gave us the 16th and 17th Amendments - two of the most damaging changes to the Constitution, both of which have served to support the expansive central government.

Voter ID Myth Crashes

My attitude about voter ID is that if a person cannot bring themselves to expend the miniscule effort required to get an ID and register to vote, there is little to no chance that they've spend the time or effort to inform themselves of the issues or candidates.
Well, this being Colorado, the obvious new mascot choices are the Cows, the Giant Douches or the Turd Sandwiches, no? This is the only rational response to such blithering liberal idiocy.
It goes without saying that if the proposed production had an anti-Christian message, there would have been no pushback from the drama professor.

Women Lying to Women

I'm sure some professional victims and their brainless acolytes (read: feminists) will rant that any criticism of dumb behaviors (getting drunk, acting immodestly, going places alone with strangers, etc) is blaming the victim. My response to that is: do you leave your car unlocked, with the keys in the ignition and your purse on the seat? Why not?

Newer New Math

I understand the method, but am unconvinced it is any easier than old-timey subtraction where you "borrow the ten" from the next column to the left. It is also much more laborious and time consuming, and thus inefficient. And, being familiar with Mr. Murphy Law, each additional operation you add to solving is just another opportunity to make a mistake. When it comes to math, KISS is the guiding rule.

When Paul Became Muhammad

The decision to accept the mantle of victimhood is probably the worst decision a person can make. The minute one decides one is a victim, one is no longer personally responsible for what happens; all the onus for one's success is transferred to the "other". This is the worst thing that can happen to a person.
Good. It's good to see some popular support for ideas and policies that will help secure good educations for the most vulnerable of our children. Will the Democrat candidates also show support for the charter school, or would that threaten their teacher union campaign donations?
