Stop Common Core and Eliminate the Department of Education

Tech at Night: More NetMundial dreaming, More Net Neutrality
So a continuing look at the NetMundial meeting to argue why American stewardship of the Internet is bad. It got hijacked by the Net Neutrality folks and the anti-American folks (with NSA as the word the Orwellian sheep are bleating), which tells you all about the orientation of this movement. Fortunately our adversaries have all the efficiency of the UN: “There were so many welcome speeches, and they went so much over time, that we did not even begin the substantive work of the conference until 5:30pm.”
Even as Putin calls the Internet a CIA project, Obama wants to hand over the Internet to these guys? Insane. Of course, it’s insane that he’s trying again on Net Neturality, though amusingly some Democrats are complaining this third attempt compromises too much.

Articles Of Impeachment Introduced On Majority Of The Oklahoma Supreme Court
Lawless courts have become the bane of our lives. Rather than a society based on the rule of law we have become a society based on rule by judges. Oklahoma may be on the cusp of addressing that problem. A member of the Oklahoma House drafted a resolution Wednesday seeking the impeachment of state Supreme Court justices who granted a delay of execution to two | Read More »
“God” Replaced With “Peace” In Pledge of Allegiance at Madison, Wisconsin High School
Promoted from the diaries by Caleb. “One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” For the past few years, this line in the Pledge of Allegiance has caused an increasing amount of debate among Americans. Despite this debate, 85% of Americans still believe that “under God” should be kept in the Pledge, while only 8% do not. Forget the lawsuits, conflict, and | Read More »
Mark Udall’s Very Bad Week: Colorado Senate Moved to Toss Up
This week has had a lot of bad news for the campaign of incumbent Colorado Senator, Democrat, strong Obamacare proponent, environmental enthusiast, Mark Udall. Whether it was news about his PAC giving his campaign money, a CNN analyst predicting his loss, new polling showing the race essentially tied and multiple vulnerabilities for Udall, or the change in the race ranking to toss-up, none of it was good news for the embattled Outward Bound Senator.

Wealth cannot be destroyed with surgical precision
The worse things look for global-warming hysterics, the more shrill and offensive they become. We’ve got Al Gore comparing himself to Martin Luther King Jr. (immediately after saying he would never make such a comparison, of course) and MSNBC host Chris Hayes explicitly comparing “climate deniers” to Civil War-era slave masters (immediately after saying he would never make such a comparison, of course.) The only | Read More »
Islamic Cleric Offended By The Mention Of Islam At 9/11 Memorial
We live in strange times. We are at a point where three lesbians can marry. We have articles in the New York Times about the difficulties homosexual couples find in conceiving children (apparently biology is no longer taught in our schools). And we have people objecting to the mention of Islam in a film about 9/11 shown at the September 11 Memorial. “The screening of | Read More »
