    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is defending a campaign mailer that Iowa's secretary of state says misrepresents election law. The mailer bills itself as a "voting violation" notice and tells the recipient it's been sent due to "low expected voter turnout in your area." It then grades the recipient's voting history and that of several neighbors, citing public records. Cruz told reporters in Sioux City, Iowa, on Saturday that the mailing is "routine." He says he won't apologize

    Liberals self-righteously wrap themselves in the mantle of public spirit. They ardently promote policies promising to deliver the poor and oppressed from their latest misery — policies which can only find solution in the halls of government. But no matter what issue one examines, over the last fifty plus years, the liberal prescription has almost always been a failure.Why is this so? Why does virtually every liberal scheme result in ever-increasing public spending while conditions seem to get continually worse? There are a number of reasons: The programs usually create adverse incentives. This is especially true in so-called “anti-poverty” programs....

    For the past week or so, a couple of really strange things have been happening with my FR account. One, I keep getting mysteriously 'bumped' off the site (logged out). Once bumped off I am unable to get back on (log in) for hours. Two, a few days ago, nearly every one of my posts were deleted from the message board. All of the posts were direct responses to questions asked and contained powerful spot-on facts about the issue at hand. Now, as a lot of you know, I've compiled quite a bit of evidence on the ObamaRats' connections to...

    Expanded Learning Time or Money? by: Rachel Paulk, July 24, 2008 The Center for American Progress recently held a panel pushing for the implementation of and lauding the benefits of expanded learning time (ELT) programs in schools nationwide. Most programs involve either lengthening the actual school day or increasing the number of days in a school year; to date, mostly charter schools and some elementary and middle schools have been able to integrate a functional ELT program into their curriculum. Proponents assert that the added time helps teachers expand and further expound on core classes like reading and math, though...

    RVING -- When pro-immigrant activists held a rally Wednesday against a police program that has led to more than 1,500 deportations this year, they told the crowd to call City Hall and demand an end to the program. City officials said they were swamped with nearly 500 calls the next day. But the calls were overwhelmingly in favor of the police crackdown, called the Criminal Alien Program. "We received a ton of phone calls at City Hall, ... and they have mostly been in support of our program," Mayor Herbert Gears said. He said he also got 265 e-mails Thursday,...
