What’s with the Left’s attraction to Pedophilia?

It is a rare day when I write about anything that doesn’t have to do with politics or economics. I leave social issues to others, which isn’t to mean that I’m not interested in social issues. I am. But, I don’t care how the Left twist and distorts the English language, sexual abuse of children is not a life style choice. It is the most vile and disgusting of criminal acts. And, it is even more vile and disgusting when it done by someone in whom we intrust our children for hours at a time; such as, a teacher. Maybe […]

This is How the Left Operates: Teacher’s Union Official Tries to ‘Dig up Dirt,” Smear Concerned Parent Who Questioned Curriculuum

A Tale of two Stories: Teachers Unions Fights for Failed DC School System

Michelle Rhee, the Chancellor of the Washington DC school system has spent the last several years creating quite a storm.  Hired by Mayor Adrian Fenty, she’s cut costs, closed crumbling schools, and worse yet, she has acted to terminate failed teachers.  Considering that the DCPS spends more money per pupil than any system in the country, and yet has the worst results, you would think that any effort to improve it would be applauded? Not so much. The Mayor Fenty, was defeated in the Democratic primary by Vincent Gray, the Chairman of the DC Council.  Gray will run virtually unopposed […]
