Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us). My fight, from a Conservative (with small "L" libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us.

Blogline of the Day: But only if we can still use’em for political purposes

Democrats and media use Bush’s death as cudgel to beat Trump. Because for the DNC-MSM, the only good Republican is a dead one I’ve noticed that over the years as well – all of a sudden, they rise from being evil to “such a great guy” and it is always about the Leftist Power Narrative.  For instance, …

So School Districts want “involved Parents”? Er, not so much here

My operative question in this (and those similar to them) is this: Who works for whom? Reformatted, emphasis mine: Parents lament Connecticut school district’s decision to stop lunch visits Some parents cherish school lunch visits with their children.
