1 in 20 kids fail Kindergarten?

There is no doubt that the K-12 educational system in this country has issues. The statistics get thrown around on the news from time to time when there isn’t anything else to talk about.

Stacy McCain Nails it

I can't do better than this: Well, I doubt I’ll be alive in 2040, but I shudder to think what kind of America my children and grandchildren will be living in, 25 years from now, if things keep going in the direction they’re going now, at an ever-accelerating speed.

Jindal’s Hat is in the Ring

By:  Pat Austin SHREVEPORT – Governor Bobby Jindal threw his hat into the presidential ring last week and, to be sure, it was almost an anti-climactic move.  Here in Louisiana especially, we have seen this move coming for years.  Certainly his announcement met with an underwhelming response around the state.

Has anyone considered that this is by design

Yesterday Instapundit linked to a piece at Newsbusters suggesting the Univision's attacks on Donald Trump failed miserably: Aside from the fact Trump was accurate, if uncomfortably so?

King v Burwell A Podcast Flashback

When I first heard about the King v Burwell the first thought that came to my mind wasn't its impact on the GOP congress, the electoral impact in the GOP primary, the confirmation of Justice Roberts status as "Old Yellowstain" or even the orgasmic nonsense that is all over CNN & MSNBC over the law. … Continue reading King v Burwell A Podcast Flashback

Rand Paul and A Dangerous Precedent

In the rush of news all over the place Rand Paul's Tax plan hasn't gotten the attention it deserves. Paul is to be commended for putting out a plan with substance but there is a point I'd like to make. I don't mind a consumption tax if the income taxes are totally eliminated but if … Continue reading Rand Paul and A Dangerous Precedent

Scalia: Who knew everyone before us were Bigots & dopes?

It is highly unlikely that Justice Scalia dissent in Obergefell et al vs Hodges is going to get the attention that his dissent in King vs Burwell did, but there is a paragraph in this dissent that should be recited and memorized by every conservative in America: But what really astounds is the hubris reflected … Continue reading Scalia: Who knew everyone before us were Bigots & dopes?
