    One thing we have going for us is that stupidity proposed by the California Teachers' Association is bound to upset a lot of people who do not want their kids politically brainwashed by greedy teachers for the self-serving agenda of the teachers' unions.

    To all outward appearances, the just-concluded Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) was a huge success. It was attended by a large, boisterous crowd, a substantial part of which was student-age - a promising indicator of the movement’s appeal to the coming generation.

    The problem with a rigged market capital system is that lying has become second nature to Ben Bernanke, Wall Street, and the hosts and guests on CNBC. As a result, fraud is now the number one component ruling our fragile economy.

    It is common to have ‘non-mainstream types’ populate the U.S. House of Representatives after electoral landslides. With two-year terms, House offices are vulnerable to tempestuous voters; voters are more willing to test different views in a shorter term, and a Representative has less potential to do harm in a chamber of 435 peers. What is far less common is when an outlier is elected to the Senate.
