Football players who get frustrated by their teams’ performance often react in regrettable ways.
Press-conference temper tantrums. Shouting matches with coaches. Sideline fights. Locker-room donnybrooks.
And we all know what those reactions earn for those frustrated players.
So when a junior defensive end from the Rittman (Ohio) High School football team got a composition class assignment last Friday to write a poem about…Continue

Gay activists in Massachusetts claim to acting on behalf of their rights as if they were fighting for a civil right cause such as racial discrimination. In fact, many gay organizations are aggressive and even reckless promoters of the homosexual lifestyle to school children.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Federal lawmakers want to prevent schools from employing convicted sex offenders, kidnappers, murderers, pornographers, spouse beaters and rapists.
It’s such an obviously good idea that Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. House agree on it, and passed legislation by a simple voice vote to make it the law.
But there’s one group who thinks this is a bad idea: leaders of our nation’s teachers…Continue

Happy Columbus Day. You can read any number of revisionist historical smears against Christopher Columbus across America. Valerie Strauss writes in several in today’s “The Washington Post.” I am not sure what motivates so much animus against Columbus, but revisionists are so determined to trash Columbus that they will say almost anything. Ms. Stauss is so eager to belittle Columbus that her criticism is downright…Continue

Well first of all, GEOrgia Lord says to vote FOR it, so I was suspicious immediately.
GEOrgia says in her support letter that this is NOT a new tax, so your taxes will not go up. Well, GEOrgia, as usual, is full of it. Of course this is a new tax, and if you vote AGAINST it, your taxes might go DOWN because as property values go up (which they have already, and we didn’t see GEOrgia and the city of GY lower rates did we?) you will see your taxes…Continue
