Second, why do you keep saying you fixed the economy when it's actually worse?

Third, why did you say that Jeremiah…

Goodbye UNESCO a Model for Goodbye UN

by Phyllis Schlafly

A trigger provision buried in U.S. laws since 1990 quietly took effect at the end of October. The U.S. taxpayers' annual donation of 22 percent of UNESCO's budget was summarily terminated when UNESCO voted 107 to 14 (with 52 abstentions) to approve full membership for Palestine.



The cutoff of U.S. handouts includes not only our major annual gift to UNESCO of $80 million but also some extra-budgetary donations of $2 million and $3 million a year for special…

12 Year Old Girls: Sex Yes, Tanning Beds No

The bill was signed Sunday. Human papillomavirus is the leading cause of cervical cancer.

Why We Should Shut Down the Department of Education and How to Do It

By Bill Korach and Deb Gonzales

Republican candidates, Ron Paul, Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, Michelle Bachmann, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney have stated that the Department of Education (DOE) should be either abolished or significantly reduced in scope. We believe that the DOE is doing far more harm than good, and should be abolished. The DOE was established under Jimmy Carter in 1978 at the urging of the newly formed public teacher’s unions. The budget for the first year of…

The Light of a Single Candle



The forces that are arrayed against us are legion and daunting, we will lose many battles; however, we must not let that deter us from our task. Our task, a noble one and equally daunting, is to reverse our country's decline into socialism and return it to a freedom loving Republic. The map back to freedom is over the same path that the Left took in leading us to this place and time. That path is through education. All we need to do is to stay the course.

 

The Left has…

Illegitimae Noncarborundum

Per...NEVER GIVE UP!!! Or...as they used to say in the Roman Legions: "Illegitimae noncarborundum." That's fractured Latin for "Never Let the Bastards Grind You Down."

What we've seen in this election is the raw power of the socialist unions. They have the money and they have the brainwashed membership. They also have the most mendacious propaganda machine in the world. Plus, the media supports them in all their nefarious deeds and ideas.

 

The only way they can be stopped is…

Obama's Student Loan Gift to Occupy Wall Street

    In the 2008 election, Senator Barack Obama reached out to young Americans with a fresh message that appealed to theirdissatisfaction with the nation's political process.

Now, three years later, some of those young Americans have taken to the streets not in joy andexuberance but in anger and frustration. President Obama has heard their…
