Are You a Purple Penguin?

This story goes in my “Administrators gone wild” file. It seems a Nebraska school district is instructing its teachers not to use the terms “boys and girls,” “ladies and gentlemen,” “you guys,” well, you get the idea. Why?

Article V Convention – Congress Will Not Act, So We Will

Government debt continues to amass at a dizzying pace. The federal government has displayed no discipline in reining it in and reestablishing a more sound fiscal footing for the future of the country.

I Told You It Wasn’t a Woman’s Health Issue !

Even Democrats realize Cap and Trade = economic disaster

For years, economists have been saying that cap-and-trade would be an economy killer. Now, a group of California Democrats has come to the same conclusion in a letter to the head of California’s air resources board. The 16 Democrats have requested a delay or change to the rules that would put gasoline under the same cap-and-trade rules… Read More »

Obama Illegally Shutting Down Businesses with Operation Choke Point

In a free-market capitalistic system, the economy grows as companies compete freely for consumer dollars by producing superior products and services, adding jobs while their bottom-line grows. In such a system the government plays a role as referee by protecting consumers and ensuring all corporate players compete legally, and fairly. But in a crony-capitalistic system,… Read More »
