    A California preschool teacher is facing felony charges after she allegedly drugged toddlers with a sleep aid. KTVU reports 59-year-old Deborah Gratz was arrested on child endangerment charges after she was fired from her job at the Kiddie Academy preschool in Morgan Hill. A witness told authorities they observed Gratz putting an unknown substance into the drinking cups of the children in her classroom, who range in ages 1 to 2. Police say when administrators confronted Gratz, she admitted putting an over-the-counter sleeping aid "Sominex" into the kids' drinks. None of the children drank from the cups the day the...

    Democrat and Republican liberals on the US House Education and Labor Committee have released their discussion draft for the reauthorization of No Child Left Behind (NCLB).  Both Hillary Clinton, as the "mayor" of the government "village" which wants to raise our children, and the ghost of George Orwell, author of 1984, are well represented in this draft.  What began in 1965, ostensibly as an effort to help poor children improve academic achievement has grown and spread like a monstrous cancer that is destroying academic achievement and freedom, parental autonomy, privacy, and the ability to maintain our republic for ALL public...

    "I want to go to trial on Monday; I've been locked up for nearly eight years," declared Charles Thomas Sell. "The federal court has no evidence, they have no witnesses. I want my trial one week from today. I am not incompetent in any way, shape or form." His statements rang true to bystanders attending his hearing on Nov. 22 in the federal courthouse in St. Louis. Whatever happened to the right of an accused to have a speedy trial? Once a successful dentist in St. Louis County who treated many indigent patients, Sell was accused of Medicaid fraud in...

    My husband and I were outraged when we read an Associated Press story in the Sept. 11 Register saying that dangerous, highly addictive stimulant drugs, such as Ritalin, have been OK'd by the Food and Drug Administration's Pediatric Committee and will be given to physically normal, healthy children as part of a brain study meant to lead to a definitive diagnosis for ADHD. In the study, led by Dr. Judith Rapoport, "MRIs would be used to reveal if the brains of children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder respond to stimulants in fundamentally different ways than children who are physically normal," a...

    Supreme Court Rules There Are Limits on When Government Can Forcibly Drug Criminal Defendants The Supreme Court ruled Monday that there are limits on when the government can forcibly medicate mentally ill criminal defendants to make them well enough to stand trial for fraud or other charges. The 6-3 ruling, a defeat for prosecutors, means that the government will have to revise a common practice now of putting defendants on anti-psychotric drugs for their trials. Justices said that the Constitution allows the government to administer drugs only "in limited circumstances." The case required the court to balance the government's interest...
