    This cartoon was drawn by a 16-year-old homeschooler.The title of this article is polarizing and I expect to get in trouble for writing it. As a homeschooling parent, I’m not supposed to think homeschooling superior to institutionalized education. I’m supposed to take the stance that all choices are equal in the effort not to offend anyone who prefers public schooling. It’s a hot topic in the mommy circles and one that most homeschooling moms want to avoid. We all encounter the same comments and exclamations like, “How do you do it? When are you going to put them in...

  • Video: Annie Oakley's Sharpshooting Skills - November 1, 1894 @ Edison's Black Maria Studio

    Annie Oakley (1860 – 1926) was an American sharpshooter and exhibition shooter. Oakley’s amazing talent and timely rise to fame led to a starring role in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show, which propelled her to become the first American female superstar. Oakley’s perhaps most famous trick is being able to repeatedly split a playing card, edge-on, and put several more holes in it before it could touch the ground, using a .22 caliber rifle, at 90 feet. (NOTE: Just go to the link provided to watch the 25 second video clip.)

    Everyone came away from the initial summit meeting between Obama, Boehner and Reid with big smiles and a public air of confidence that Friday's kumbaya moment would lead to The Big Deal. Call me a cynic, but I'm still not buying it. Yesterday, AP touched on a part of this story, tossing out some ideas about how everyone --- particularly Democrats ... might walk away with relatively clean hands if no deal is reached on the fiscal cliff this year. It's all true, but for some of us there's a bit more to the story. The Democrats, for their part,...

    Well over half of British voters now want to leave the European Union, according to an opinion poll that shows anti-EU sentiment is sweeping through all three main political parties.

About 68% of Conservative voters want to leave the EU, against 24% who want to remain; 44% of Labour voters would probably choose to get out, against 39% who would back staying in, while some 39% of Liberal Democrats would probably...

    Opponents of the HHS contraception mandate got good news late on Friday ---- another plaintiff won a preliminary injunction against its enforcement on Friday in federal court. The Obama administration had attempted to argue that Tyndale House Publishers didn't meet its standards to claim a religious exemption, but according to LifeNew' report, that argument didn't impress a federal judge --- even though Tyndale has no explicit connection to a church: In its opinion accompanying a preliminary injunction order in Tyndale House Publishers v. Sebelius, the court wrote that “the beliefs of Tyndale and its owners are indistinguishable…. Christian principles, prayer,...

    Republicans have their guns blazing, shooting themselves in the foot. One way that conservatives regularly harm themselves is that they start an argument by conceding defeat. They take the false premises of the enemy as the starting point of their own argument. If step one of your defense is to agree with your opponent, you are helping them more than you are helping yourself. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal gave us an example of this technic on Monday. He called on Republicans to stop being the stupid party . He said, We cannot be, we must not be, the party that...

    The Hostess brand is heading to the auction block, following an announcement that the company would be shutting down. But that may not mean an end to Twinkies. A Mexican company called Bimbo, which is credited as being the largest bread maker in the world, may have plans to buy the brand. Grupo Bimbo is no stranger to acquiring foreign companies. With other baking goods companies like Mrs. Baird's Bakeries and Sara Lee already under his belt, Daniel Servitje who runs Bimbo, has already shown interest in Hostess in the past. The Bimbo company attempted a deal in 2007 during...

    Wests campaign, though, is calling for an emergency hearing over concerns raised during the recount process, including results showing that 900 votes were cast in precinct 93, where there are only seven voters registered. As usual, Murphys people are full of garbage, West campaign manager Tim Edson told the Post. This is something the secretary of state and governor will have to sort out.
