More, Who Can Afford To, Are Leaving Public School

New Report Says a Majority of Public School Students Are Poor. Why Else Would They Be There? I’m not sure I understand why anyone would be surprised at the news reported by Bloomberg: “Majority of U.S. Public-School Children Are Living in Poverty.” A majority of U.S. public-school children are living in poverty for the first time in half a century. Fifty-one percent of public-school students qualified for free or reduced-price lunch in 2013, the Southern Education Foundation said in Read more […]

The War On Poverty Was Successful In Making More Poverty To Justify Expanding Government

Yesterday, the Washington Post’s blog, The Fix, posted typical regime propaganda about LBJ and his 1964 State of the Union address in which he declared “War on Poverty.” It posted a snip of the speech. But only a snip. Here is a part of the speech that was left out: Very often a lack of jobs and money is not the cause of poverty, but the symptom. The cause may lie deeper – in our failure to give our fellow citizens a fair chance to develop their own capacities, in a lack of education Read more […]

What? LBJ A Criminal? How Shocking!

I have no idea if Lyndon B. Johnson had a hand in the public execution of John F. Kennedy. The list of suspects is so long I don’t see how anyone would figure it out. I am pleasantly surprised that Fox News gave TV coverage to a book fingering LBJ as the main perpetrator. Even if the thesis is wrong, it will at least provide readers with more reason to doubt the official lone gunman theory—which richly deserves doubt. But what I do find grotesque is the response the Fox & Friends host Read more […]

The Civil Slavery of Black Americans

There is no doubt that race relations in America are strained between black and white people (especially in the South). There are many racial prejudices and stereotypes that, at least in a general way, seem to correlate to experience. For instance, many white Americans (even ones who claim to be the stoutest supporters of racial equality) view black people as generally inferior in culture, language, heritage, wealth, family life, education, etc. There are reasons why these generalities exist. Getting Read more […]

We’ve Become a Food Stamps Nation to Keep Democrats in Power

Food Stamps are big business, job killers, turn human beings into wards of the State, and have become a reliable voting block for the Democrat Party. The typical argument used by liberals as to why food stamps are so important is that children and the elderly are the recipients. That’s probably true. The question is, how did we get to the place in our nation where in 1969, 2.8 million people received food stamps and today more than 47 million are on food stamps? “Since President Lyndon Baines Read more […]

Can States Say No to the Feds? Cities Show the Way of State Sovereignty

The United States of America ARE, not the United States of America IS. Each state in the union of states has its own constitution, governor, and body of laws. Each state has its own way of collecting taxes. No group of states can tell other states how to run their state. Some states have a state income tax, and some don’t. If we don’t like how our state is being governed, we can move to another state. This is one reason for the inclusion of the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. At Read more […]

Is Syria Our Fight or a Re-Election Ploy?

On this day, August 4, 1964, Democrat President Lyndon Baines Johnson addressed the people of the United States from radio and television: My fellow Americans: As President and Commander in Chief, it is my duty to the American people to report that renewed hostile actions against United States ships on the high seas in the Gulf of Tonkin have today required me to order the military forces of the United States to take action in reply. The performance of commanders and crews in this engagement is Read more […]
