The summer meal program continues at several East Valley school district campuses.

The program is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture. Free breakfast and lunch are available to all children 18 and younger.

The meal program ends prior to classes starting for the new school… Continue

The Cartel in front of the Texas legislature

It's time that our state legislature watch this movie (as if they didn't already know what is going on).



Last January, The Cartel screened at the Texas Public Policy Foundation in Austin, as part of the 8th Annual Policy Orientation for the Texas Legislature. After the screening director Bob Bowdon weighed in on the widespread problem in our school systems and why it is imperative that…

Why the left hates conservatives

Why the left hates conservatives by Dennis Prager

Perhaps the most telling of the recent revelations of the liberal/left Journolist, a list consisting of about 400 major liberal/left journalists, is the depth of their hatred of conservatives. That they would consult with one another to protect candidate and then President Obama and hurt Republicans is unfortunate and ugly. But what is jolting is the hatred of conservatives, as exemplified by the e-mail from an NPR reporter… Continue

Prosecutor Warns Districts About New Sex Ed Law

In a letter sent to five Wisconsin school districts, prosecutor Scott Southworth warned that a new sex ed law could lead to criminal charges against teachers for contributing to the delinquency of minors.

Wisconsin schools aren't required to offer sex ed courses, but those that do must now include instruction on how to use condoms and birth control pills. Southworth contends the law "turns objective instruction" into "implicit encouragement and advocacy" by going beyond the effects of… Continue

By BOB LEWIS, AP Political Writer Bob Lewis, Ap Political Writer

RICHMOND, Va. – Virginia Sen. Jim Webb called for ending government-run diversity programs in a newspaper column Friday, saying they have disadvantaged struggling whites and hurt the cause of racial harmony.

Webb wrote an op-ed column in Friday's Wall Street Journal that said a "plethora of government-enforced diversity policies have marginalized many white workers. The time has come to cease the false arguments and… Continue

Spenders hatch plot to raise taxes

It takes a 2/3 majority vote in the Arizona Legislature to raise taxes. The public education spending lobby, frustrated by their inability to get the necessary votes, hatched a devious plan to get them.

You see, their plan is to cross the tax hike threshold by planting DIDs (Democrats in Disguise) in a few heavily Republican districts. Voters will be duped into thinking they are voting for a Republican fiscal conservative and then…..



Surprise! These same people will vote YES on… Continue

Our Corrupt Schools

Gary Bray

Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would LOVE me, for I came from God and now am here. I have not come on my own; but he sent me. John 8:42

The overwhelming corruption inside the school system has led the Bloodhounds straight to Blogovich. This trial is completely surrounded by the Chicago machine and the corruption of our socialist edoctrination system. The school system has been completely corrupted by the Teachers Unions and their pension plans that the Pay… Continue

REPORT: MUSD "Truth in Taxation" Meeting on July 13, 2010

I am sad to say that we had a different outcome in Mesa than we did at the Gilbert meeting. I was not surprised because we have interacted with that group before. Here is what happened on Tuesday July 13:



About 15 – 20 people showed up to protest the tax increase. I think that 6 people spoke or about half of the number that spoke in Gilbert. Those who spoke included TJ Fantechi, Eddie Cook, Randy Hatch, a couple others and myself.

The meeting was not held in the public Governing… Continue

New Kids Game: Dodge Bullet

Mexico's drug violence leads schools to teach students to dodge bullets



MEXICO CITY - Schools across Mexico are teaching students to dive to the floor and cover their heads as urban gunfights between drug gangs multiply in the violence-torn country.

At least nine shootouts have erupted in school zones since mid-October, three of them in the past month. On June 15, soldiers and gunmen battled for an hour just 60 feet from a preschool in the central town of Taxco.

White House vs. Boy Scouts, Part 3

by Chuck Norris



In parts 1 and 2, I discussed a series of evidences regarding how President Barack Obama is leading the White House pack in distancing his administration from the Boy Scouts of America via delaying Eagle Scout certificate signings, denying the invitation to go to the BSA's 100th anniversary gala, downplaying his acceptance of BSA's honorary presidency, dodging official White House communications about the BSA, not defending the BSA against…

Cartels use (American) kids to bring drugs across United States-Mexico border

On May 9, a 15-year-old girl walked into Arizona through the San Luis port of entry, near Yuma, with 5 pounds of marijuana strapped around her belly.



She got busted by Customs and Border Protection officers.

Later that same day, a 16-year-old boy tried the same thing with 2 pounds of cannabis taped to his legs. He, too, was arrested.

The marijuana, with a combined street value of $72,000, was confiscated.

The juveniles - both U.S. citizens - were turned over to… Continue

Indoctrinate Our Kids and Green My Parents

By Ashley Thorne

Actress Brooke Shields says it bothers her to hear about global warming skepticism: "I don't know what is true or not, I only know what I can do on a daily basis because I believe in it. Whether I am turning the water off in between brushing my teeth, which my little daughter is the police of, or I am recycling, or switching my products or using an energy saving washing machine. . . . I just have to do the best that I can do and keep doing more."

Shields' faith in… Continue

"Please don't make me do this!"

A New Jersey principal denied that boys at Maude M. Wilkins Elementary School were expected to dress as women for an assignment celebrating Women's History Month after parents complained and contacted Fox News. But to Janine Giandomenico's nine-year-old son, the expectation was all too clear. The boy came home in tears and begged his mother, "Please don't make me do this."

In a 16-page packet sent home with students, teacher Tonya Uibel informed parents that all students in her third grade… Continue

Caleb Laieski said he was repeatedly bullied by fellow students who threatened to beat him up and cursed at him because he is gay.

The 15-year-old activist said that he was pushed into lockers, told to "die" and that he would "go to hell." The teen said he reported several incidents to administrators last year when he was a… Continue
