Last week, the National Assessment of Education Progress issued its latest long-term trend assessment report. The results are clear: We are failing to teach our children the basics of math and reading. These results are based on tests taken before the pandemic. Just imagine how much worse the next round of tests will be due to all the ...Read more
While many on the left are still using the mantra "follow the science," it appears to be a mantra that has no meaning. President Joe Biden made a speech in Illinois last week in a push to get employers to require COVID-19 vaccinations of their employees. Yet during the speech, he spread misinformation when he claimed that vaccinated people (he ...Read more
When did we decide that arguing was intolerable? Possibly it was when we determined that arguments were not about whether we were right or wrong but whether we were good or bad. We had to be right (we are good), and the others to be wrong (they are bad). What had once been intellectual arguments buttressed on each side by facts and figures ...Read more
Last Saturday, President Joe Biden tweeted the following about his $3.5 trillion proposal: "My Build Back Better Agenda costs zero dollars. Instead of wasting money on tax breaks, loopholes and tax evasion for big corporations and the wealthy, we can make a once-in-a-generation investment in working America. And it adds zero dollars to the ...Read more
In March, as the number of encounters between illegal immigrants and U.S. Border Patrol agents was increasing on our southern border, President Joe Biden appointed Vice President Kamala Harris to take charge of the problem. "I can think of nobody who's better qualified to do this," Biden said of Harris. "When she speaks, she speaks for me."
We are officially in the era of absurdity. President Joe Biden has asked those who are unvaccinated to wear masks to protect the vaccinated. While Democrats are pushing for a moratorium on evictions and rent, businesses cannot fill jobs. Inflation is rapidly rising, the Federal Reserve is printing gobs of money, and the government is running a...Read more
This week, I am staying at a ranch in Montana. The state is called Big Sky Country for a reason. The sky is enormous, the mountains high, the trees plentiful and the sun bright. The nights are dark and filled with sounds that are different from the sirens and street racing that I hear in Atlanta, where I live. The cell service is nonexistent, ...Read more
This Tuesday, a defiant President Joe Biden stood at a podium in the White House State Dining Room and delivered yet another address about Afghanistan without taking any questions. After the deaths last week of 13 U.S. service members in a suicide bomber attack at Kabul Airport's Abbey Gate, after leaving Americans and American allies behind and...Read more
Less than two months ago, President Joe Biden told the American people that the Taliban would not be able to rapidly take over Afghanistan once we pulled out our troops. Our exit was to be uneventful -- but a lot has happened since then. The Taliban did take over Afghanistan, so fast that Biden was challenged to keep up with the rapid change of ...Read more
I filled up my tank today, and gas was over $4 per gallon. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the annual inflation rate in July was 5.4%, with the cost of energy up 23.8%. The current U.S. debt is over $80,000 per person, a 15% increase in a little over a year. Our southern border is a sieve, with over 210,000 border stops this ...Read more
For the past year and a half, we've been told repeatedly to rely on science. First, Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health told us not to wear masks; only those in medical settings needed them. Fauci then said we should wear masks. Then people were seen sporting several masks. We were told that there would be two weeks to flatten...Read more
For those who have been avoiding the Olympics due to United States Olympians' protesting the country they represent, this week brought a sweet respite. Tamyra Mensah-Stock, who won a gold medal for the United States in freestyle wrestling, is a breath of fresh air. Enthusiastic, faithful, married and a patriot -- she thanked God for her final ...Read more
Government legislative titles often sound fantastic; certainly, there is a branding guru in charge of naming potential legislation something that appeals to the masses.
But the titles don't always fairly describe the legislation they are attached to. To translate these grand sounding legislative titles into normal English, you must employ a ...Read more
