The “Adults” Are In Charge

tshirtUnless you are one of the under-informed (low information voter), you have probably heard the story of the young man from West Virginia who got suspended from school for wearing a pro Second Amendment t-shirt.

News Briefs – Volume XXI

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories…

Brief 1:  Let’s call this one “Corn For Clunkers.”  Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency(:EPA”)  is looking out for you or so they claim, but they are not as in tune with what’s good for your car.  EPA has approved the sale of an ethanol/gasoline mix containing up to 15% of the corn-based ethanol.  The only problem is that this mix would be very harmful to engines manufactured before 2007 (that’s two out of three vehicles in our household).  Will someone explain what law gives the EPA the authority to approve/push consumer products?  A group of auto manufacturers and engine makers has filed suit against EPA

Liberal Alters – Public Education

My own personnel experience with public education was limited to a year in kindergarten at Horace Mann school.  The building still stands today, but no education going on in there anymore unless you consider stabbings and shootings and in particular how to avoid them education.  My parents enrolled me in a private educational system starting if first grade.  Before you get all twisted the private education was Catholic Schools in which I spent the next twelve years.  Going to Catholic grade school was certainly convenient as I could walk there and there certainly was discipline growing up Catholic.
