Public School says No Prayer; Students do it Anyway, Secularist Baffled

washington praying Last week we discussed a recent ban by U.S. District Judge, Carlton Reeves, given to Rankin County School District, saying it promoted Christianity.  What’s wrong with a public school district promoting Christianity? The Judge maintains a “legal fiction” the courts call the “Incorporation Doctrine.” Contrary to the 10th Amendment, this “Incorporation Doctrine” has been the source of an unconstitutional federal usurpation of power over and against all 50 states along with their Read more [...] Continue reading →

Denying Me Your Daughters’ Restroom is Bigotry!

transgender restroom A teen high school student with long hair and some makeup thinks anyone who treats him like a male is guilty of bigotry. The difference between girls and boys is not how they wear their hair. You would think high school students would know that. KMOV reports, “Hillsboro High School students stage walkout in dispute over transgender student.” More than 150 students walked out of Hillsboro High School over a dispute about the use of the girls' locker room by a transgender student. The Read more [...] Continue reading →

More Thought Control through Language Control at University

brain wash Washington State University professors institute thought control by prohibiting some terms and mandating others. No sooner do I find one story about thought control at a university but another one appears in the news. Unlike the University of Tennessee where the transgender pronouns are merely recommended (so far), in this case student grades depend upon conformity. Campus Reform reports, “Professors threaten bad grades for saying ‘illegal alien,’ ‘male,’ ‘female’.” Correspondent Read more [...] Continue reading →

New Gender Neutral Pronouns at University of Tennessee

Third gender The university wants students to use gender neutral pronouns in order to be "welcoming" to all students. To me, it seems like cult brainwashing to make people under your influence engage in new rituals in order to break their beliefs and install new ones. But at the University of Tennessee, it is a matter of being “welcoming and inclusive.” Thus, we find this post from the Office of Diversity and Inclusion on the university website: “Inclusive Practice: Pronoun Usage.” With the new Read more [...] Continue reading →

FedEx CEO Attacks Public School Monopoly

school bus stop Frederick Smith says that the public school monopoly tends "to gravitate to the lowest common denominator." In my opinion, Frederick Smith was courageous to say the things he said. There are two reasons for my opinion. First, despite the popular myth about them and the free market, businessmen and entrepreneurs are often more interested in gaining government help than in winning in a free market environment. For some, a monopoly is what they aspire to become once they get successful enough to Read more [...] Continue reading →

Can Federal Judges Run Public Schools?

gavel scales law books Judicial tyranny, specifically in our American court system, has usurped legislative jurisdiction, and I am so bold as to add Divine jurisdiction, in our Constitutional Republic. We saw its egregious head again this past weekend after a Mississippi school district canceled Brandon High School’s marching band playing of the Christian hymn “How Great Thou Art” during halftime at Friday night’s football season opener. The reason? It was decided that singing a hymn was too similar Read more [...] Continue reading →

Pell Grants: Billions for Schools, but No Graduating Students

College_graduate_students Pell Grants were designed in a way to leave us in the dark about whether the money was being spent wisely. I recently posted about how student welfare for graduate students—welfare in the form of loans that no one is going to repay other than the taxpayer—is really a form of corporate welfare for Universities. But here is a much bigger example of how the government has been scamming us for years and is only just now being exposed. NBC News reports, “Pell Grants: Billions Go to Students Who Read more [...] Continue reading →

Student Welfare for Post Graduates and Universities

student loan bubble Here’s another boondoggle brought to you by our government: post graduate student welfare as loan forgiveness. Basically, public debt and/or taxpayers are being used to provide people going into professional and profitable careers a massive subsidy. Perhaps more importantly, the government sustains the college tuition bubble a bit longer by providing this subsidy. When you hear candidates try to come up with a way to give out free community college, you might get the impression that we are Read more [...] Continue reading →

Sometimes Ending Child Labor Is Cruel to Children

Pelosi and Children Advocates of ending child labor need to gain some respect for unintended consequences. Milton Friedman famously suggested that government programs should be measured by results, not their intentions. I’m sure he said also, or would have said, that moral crusades should be judged by their consequences, not by the intentions of the moral crusaders. For whatever reason the New York Times Editorial Board decided late last month to pass judgment on at what age and how much children in India work Read more [...] Continue reading →

Why Free College for Prisoners is a Bad Idea

Obama-money Free college for prisoners is appealing, but it dispenses with justice. Barack Obama is about to start giving Pell grants that will provide free college for prisoners. Both those in state and federal prisons will be affected, according to Politico. Of course, this will be done in contradiction to law passed by Congress. On Monday, [Education Secretary, Arne] Duncan said that restoring Pell eligibility for those potential students is one way his agency hopes to increase college affordability. “We’ll Read more [...] Continue reading →

Senate Pushing Campus Rape Hysteria and No Due Process

rape free campus Campus rape hysteria is going to be pumped up to justify a law that pretends to address the “crisis” but doesn’t allow due process for the accused. With Rolling Stone publicly crashing and burning on a faux campus rape story that was set up by an Obama Administration advisor, you would think that Lamar Alexander would be more careful. But he seems just fine pushing campus rape hysteria. The Daily Caller reports, “Senate Plans One-Sided Sexual Assault Panel.” The U.S. Senate is planning Read more [...] Continue reading →

More Transgender Tyranny in New York Schools

transgender restroom Children who are supposedly transgender must be referred as the sex they wish they are rather than by their real sex. After reading about what New York State wants for athletes, nothing can really surprise us. Life Site News reports, Boys or girls who suffer from gender dysphoria must be allowed to use the bathrooms and change rooms of the opposite sex if they wish to do so, according to new guidance from the New York State Department of Education (NYDE). The document also clarifies that while Read more [...] Continue reading →
