The Florida Department of Education is rewriting the Florida Principal Leadership Standards. What are they putting into the new revision? Teachers now are required to teach social justice in the classroom. Social justice supports equality and solidarity in a society.
Equality is subjective and is also a tool for manipulating emotions. If I tell you enough times that the…Continue

Florida is my home and we’ve been through hurricane watches and warnings many times before. We are blessed this time because Irene decided to give us a break and head up north.
We pray for those who have never experienced the power of a hurricane and hope they will heed warnings and prepare accordingly. We have had our share of preparing for possible destruction. We’ve stood in…Continue
I was just watching Fox News and the funeral of one of the 30 Navy Seals that were killed recently. The soldiers dog led the procession and stayed right by the coffin...So Sad....
And then a news spot about the fact that regulatory agencies of the federal government have grown by 13% in the last 2 1/2 years, while regulations have increased by 15%.....Costing small business owners $11,000 per employee....
And then I thought...How very sad that these brave men and women are…Continue

I wasn't sure what to call this: Hobbit-ually Yours, The Hobbit-ual User, Hobbit-ual Offender. You can play with it. Anyway........
It is amazing how this epithet has stuck. We know it was intended as an insult, at best. A gross dismissal and marginalizing of a whole group of G*d-fearing, sensible, 'country-first' kind of Americans; attempting to push their concerns into the dimensions of fantasy and not be taken seriously, at worst.

Hi Katherine. I have been looking up sources. I saw the dates of the burning of the capital as 24 Aug 1814. I have a conflicting source from a historical anthology (What So Proudly We Hail, by Kass, Kass & Schaub)that says on p747 , in a piece about the writing of "The Star Spangled Banner", the following :"......Key.....inspired.... by the unlikely success of American troops resisting the British attack on Baltimore's Fort McHenry…Continue

Americans for Prosperity provided this information. This does not appear to be good for the worker but will give the unions a big advantage. There is a link where you can send comments to the NLRB and let them know how you feel about this proposed rule:

Terrific piece and God bless this very brave tea party leader and paster for his stance on this matter. Maxine Waters does indeed owe the American people an apology for a lot more than just her comments about the tea party.
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 23, 2011 /Standard Newswire/ -- South Central L.A. Tea Party Founder and President, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson is demanding an apology from…Continue

I am pleased to see we are moving away from tenured professors and towards a merit system. If a professor is very good, like Jerry, he or she should not fear this approach to pay!

We have been reading this series of interviews and it felt something like the Watergate scandal and Deep Throat.
We received this from a Washington, DC insider. If these interviews are true -- we have a serious problem in the White House. If these interviews are made up -- this makes for a great novel.
The language is bad and you will be trying to figure out who is…Continue
I will develop this further, but I wanted to put a couple of thoughts down before they get away.
I could not help but notice that this very unusual earthquake began in the VA area, went into DC and was felt as far as NY!! Virginia is basically the "womb" of our nation, NY the "wallet" and DC the "seat" of government. I can't help but think that SOMEONE is trying to get our attention!!! And in the three most significant places in America. It is alarming…Continue
My Humble Opinion
There’s a trend I keep seeing on our national political shows, even FOX. The commentators are saying that Americans are scared and afraid of the Obama experience. Well count me out of that crowd. I’m pissed. I am a hard working taxpayer who sees the lazy and unproductive, that includes our elected officials, taking money from me to fund their lazy and unproductive lifestyles. This economy has taken my job and my home from my family and…Continue
