Teachers Unions: A Brief Thought
Teachers unions constantly demand more pay and more benefits. They say that it’s “for the children”. There is a valid connection between quality work and pay. Good teachers that can make better money elsewhere can do so without compromising the notion of “for the children”, if that’s even the slightest bit true. They are doing it for different children, that’s all. There is nothing wrong | Read More »

America’s Youth & The American Dream
As a member of the generation that put Obama in office, I am a rarity among my age bracket. I am a conservative. I was often baffled by the responses to “why should I vote for Obama?“ The prevalent response was “because he’s not George Bush. “That’s true, but what did it have to do with our current candidates? “Because he is not George Bush” | Read More »
Let’s Take The Language Back.
For far too long the left has managed to control the language of the political debate… not that there’s been much debate with this Congress. The left are masters of the non-specific. It’s usually a word, or a turn of phrase, that serves to divert conversation and debate away from an objective not their own. Assigning predominantly Republican cities and states the color red, as | Read More »

Education – A Fight for our Survival
The first article is the defense of an initiative at the University of Minnesota teaching standards. In the second article, this initiative is criticized. It is an interesting look at what the collectivists in teaching schools are doing to ‘raise standards’ in teachers themselves. http://www.startribune.com/opinion/commentary/75058307.html?elr=KArksc8P:Pc:U0ckkD:aEyKUiD3aPc:_Yyc:aULPQL7PQLanchO7DiUr http://www.startribune.com/opinion/commentary/70662162.html?elr=KArksc8P:Pc:U0ckkD:aEyKUiD3aPc:_Yyc:aUUr It is sometime difficult to understand the particular positions of a collectivist.
