The State Supreme Court of Massachusetts will begin hearing arguments this week in a case where an atheist couple is looking to strike the words “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance, which their kids say at school every day. ... more

Blameshifting, according to success expert Stephen Covey, is a key habit to being a hobbled and broke Occupy Occupuss. The other day I saw a trust fund baby Columbia grad at an OWS rally blathering about how Wall Street was “oppressing” him, and I’m sitting there thinking, “Yeah, sure. It’s Wall Street’s fault you can’t find gainful employment. ... more

Barely enough time has passed for bologna sandwiches to begin rotting in school lockers, yet the 2011-2012 school year is shaping up to be one of the stinkiest ever, if we’re measuring in episodes of putrid political correctness and radicalism. ... more

Last week while thousands of children were outfitted in their "Sunday best" attire to attend memorial services for their parents, victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, some children in suburban Boston were learning a different lesson about America. ... more

Let me begin by saying that although I enjoy playing golf, I don’t generally watch it on television. So, I didn’t personally see NBC’s double-butchering of the Pledge of Allegiance last week during the US Open broadcast.

A few weeks before NBC decided to take a politically correct scalpel to the Pledge of Allegiance to apparently appease those who hate our nation, I had a lengthy discussion with a PGA touring professional. Once he found out I was a conservative columnist and author, the PGA pro let loose on the state of the game in general but directing most of his criticism toward The Golf Channel and NBC. ... more

There is lots of Sarah-hate this week to wade through, plus we tackle Austan Goolsbee- and who doesn’t want to do that? -Paul Revere, investment and tax theory explained for liberals (we’ll use very simple arguments with gratuitous references to green jobs just to keep them interested), plus we’ll give out a gold star for the comment of the week. ... more

One year after the passage of SB 1070, it is clear that the momentum and the people are still with Arizona. While most political observers gloated that they did not expect another state to pass the bill just a few months ago, Arizona modeled legislation passed the Georgia and Alabama legislature with the two governors of the two states indicating they will sign the legislation. ... more
