So, a Democrat pol believes it right to have teachers grade parents??

by Skip March 11, 2016

I’m sorry, but teachers are OUR EMPLOYEES – this Mississippi House rep clearly shows that Government should be in charge, not of your kids, but you as well.  That’s right, you who pay their salaries, should now be able to be called onto the carpet.  This is an attempt to codify what I’ve been saying […]

by Skip March 11, 2016

“It’s like government spending. It is very easy. Hillary Clinton says she’ll cut waste, fraud and abuse. If only we had smarter people in Washington, that would fix the problem. You know what? That is the statement of a liberal who doesn’t understand government is the problem.

Bernie, from someone who lived under Socialism – like Gary Kasparov

by Skip March 11, 2016

We’e had discussions with folks that have lived under real Socialism – almost all immigrated from the former Eastern Bloc countries.  In each and every case, they just could not understand HOW and WHY native Americans can even think about wanting Socialism.  They understand, all too well, that the blitherings of this doddering (but unrepentant) […]

Clueless Together – Carson Endorses Trump

by Mike March 11, 2016

Kyle Tasker resigned his House seat Wednesday, probably before they voted to boot him out. Tasker was arrested for possession with intent to sell and soliciting sex from a minor over the internet, which we talked about here. And there is more to discuss on those points.
