How a Camouflage Hat and Little Plastic Soldiers Holding Little Plastic Guns Leads to a Change in School Policy.
Young David Morales, a second-grade student in Rhode Island, found himself between the proverbial rock and the hard place last week. Students were asked to design hats for a class project. David designed a hat depicting soldiers in our military. The little plastic soldiers on David’s hat held little plastic guns. The school responded by banning the hat as being a violation of their “no | Read More »

Evil Republicans get in the way of watching porn on the job…government job, that is.
Those evil Republicans who don’t care about jobs are at it again!!! The COMPETES bill, which was another jobs bill that supposedly was to increase investment in science, research and training, was shelved today when Republican’s included an amendment that prohibits taxpayer’s dollars from being used “to salaries to those officially disciplined for violations regarding the viewing, downloading, or exchanging of pornography, including child pornography, | Read More »
Tangled Webs, otherwise known as the M. Strong connection
If you like real-life conspiracy stories, then this is the best I’ve seen in a good while. In 1990, Strong told a reporter a fantasy scenario for the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland – where 1,000 diplomats, CEOs and politicians gather “to address global issues.” Strong, naturally, is on the board of the World Economic Forum. “What if a small group of these | Read More »

For the unofficial vote count posted today in NC, connect to the following link. http://results.enr.clarityelections.com/NC/15705/24367/en/summary.html# I was really bummed out yesterday evening.

The leadership factor matters!!!
My heart is heavy this evening, so I’m going to try to express some of that weight in this post. I live in the state of NC. The voter turnout was very light today…lighter by far than what was expected. For people looking from the outside in, it could seem that people of this state are either just too slack, lazy, apathetic or complacent to | Read More »

What the spirit of conservatism means to me
This is my first diary post at Red State, so I ask every one to bear with me, please. I read an entry earlier today entitled “Conservatism will die…”.
