Noonan on the DC/America Divide

January 31, 2014

So, how long did it take you to change the channel during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address?  After Obama channeled his inner Paul Harvey with folksy tales of “real” Americans, he started his regular banter not caring about the accuracy of his statements because (let’s face it) most of those watching weren’t going [...]

The Kronies

January 27, 2014

Upon hearing about this on The Blaze this evening, I had to add it to the echo chamber. Satire, beautiful satire!

Movie Review — Lone Survivor

January 25, 2014

I vaguely remember a story back in 2005 about this Navy SEAL in Afghanistan who was the only one who survived an attack by dozens of Taliban, who managing to crawl to an Afghan village, and somehow got rescued.  This Iraq War vet (OIF 1), after recovering from his wounds volunteered to go back to [...]

Slow Jam with Mitt

January 25, 2014

Mitt Romney recently appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to “Slow Jam the News.”  It’s pretty good, with a few good zings and tons of innuendo.  Check it out: H/T: The Blaze

Roe Plus 41

January 22, 2014

Ghastly math:  Roe v. Wade + 41 years = 55 million deaths. On this dark anniversary, tens of thousands braved Arctic cold and snow for the fortieth “March For Life” in Washington DC.  I was actually at one of these back in 1998.  It was inspiring to see so many others from all parts of [...]

An Obama, Not a King

January 20, 2014

Today marks America’s observance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday as a way to acknowledge and celebrate the life of the 20th Century’s most important civil rights leader.  While it may be unfair to compare today’s civil rights leaders to King and his contemporaries (given that era, his message, their tactics, etc.), a figure as [...]

Common Core: A 2014 Sleeper Issue

January 12, 2014

I initially wanted to post on the horrible economic news from what should have been a gang-busters robust good news jobs report that we didn’t get on Friday, but this Common Core issue keeps reappearing, impacting local politics throughout the nation as well as my own classroom. To the uninitiated, Common Core is an attempt [...]

Chris Christie Deals with a “Roadblock”

January 8, 2014

It is clear that after his recent reelection, Establishment New Jersey Governor Chris Christie wants to be President.  He won’t win, but the GOP seems on their way to nominate him, especially since his recent pandering to illegals.  But there may be a roadblock to an easy GOP nomination — a literal roadblock.

It’s Cold — VORTEX Cold!

January 6, 2014

If you live in the central or northeast United States, <newsflash!> it’s cold! But in today’s America, everything must be a crisis. So, that makes this particular very cold snap a “polar vortex.”  Ominous, isn’t it?  We even name winter storms now.  In some places we even have local (ahem) superintendents robo-calling entire towns to [...]

Obamacare vs. Little Sisters of the Poor

January 4, 2014

Just to review, the First Amendment to the Constitution states in its first clause: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; … That second part makes some very uncomfortable, and often is ignored in the courts. That being said, the Roman Catholic Church doesn’t approve of [...]
