Random Quote

Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does NOT mean to stand by the President or any other public official save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country.

— Theodore Roosevelt

This is an interesting examination of the influential players leading up to the 1920 election.        

The 5,000 Year Leap

I am actually re-reading this one. It is interesting that I find folks are willing to attack the author of this book, but they never attack the content. Give it a read for yourself.

Just. Plain. Evil. Heartless abuse of children

So here is a video that will make you cringe at the very least. It is a demonstration of cruelty that is infuriating. What you will see is a special needs student being abused by the people who should be helping them the most.

Lets see how this plays out. The people shown treating this child in this way need to be fired immediately. There are NO circumstances in which this behavior is okay.

If the teachers unions protect these two (as they have with previous special needs child abuse cases), I am completely done looking for any shred of giving teaching unions the benefit of the doubt. If they can let this go by, they have proven themselves to be evil beyond the shadow of any doubt.
