  • Can We Prevent a Second Civil War?

    JPFO ^ | 2011 | Kirby Ferris
    There are three issues that could presently trigger a Civil War in America: * Illegal aliens. A government that refuses to protect our borders, the methodical structure of citizenship, and the rule of law, will only be tolerated for so long. America is reaching a tipping point on this issue. * Abortion. Irreconcilable differences here. This may likely become as potent an issue as slavery was in the 1860s. * The right to keep and bear arms - see "2A Today for The USA" No other significant present day problems could potentially result in the “brother against brother” tragedy of...

    Public schools continue to be a battleground in the culture war, as the education establishment – composed primarily of leftists bent on political correctness – gains more ground.  This strain treats Christianity and its holidays as a pariah, while embracing Muslim holidays. The Hillsboro, Oregon school board just held a vote on what to call the time off school around Christmas and New Years.  It had traditionally been called “Christmas Break.”  But new calendars, produced by school staff, changed it to “Winter Break.”  The school board voted 4-3 to call it “Christmas Break.”  From OregonLive.com: “[School board member] Janeen Sollman...

    Town Hall ^ | 04/28/2011 | Cain Burdeau
    The Obama administration proposed new guidelines Wednesday that would boost the government's ability to protect streams, wetlands and other sensitive waterways from pollution. Business and property rights groups said the policy would stifle economic growth by generating more red tape for builders of homes and shopping centers, but environmentalists defended it as essential step to provide clean drinking water and protect waterfowl habitat. Administration officials said their goal was to clarify which waters are subject to federal regulation under the 1972 Clean Water Act, a question that two Supreme Court rulings in the past decade have not resolved.

    Ice makers are the latest target in the left’s ongoing war against the conveniences of modern life. Earlier this month, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) issued a report that may condemn this essential household item to the contraband list that already includes functional light bulbs, toilets, washing machines and showerheads. Those looking for an easy way to cool down their drinks with ice cubes are guilty of increasing their refrigerator’s energy consumption by about 12 to 20 percent. That’s unacceptable to global-warming alarmists at the Department of Energy (DOE) who are hard at work finalizing regulatory standards...

    It’s been two weeks since George Soros bought himself a major economic conference designed to remake the entire global economy. Just because the event received little major news attention, it still had an impact Americans might be reeling from for years. When the anti-American Soros spent $50 million creating the New York City-based Institute for New Economic Thinking(INET), he began a major move against the dollar. The billionaire who once crushed the British pound through currency trading openly declared his plans to “reform the currency system.” In the Machiavellian mind of Soros, the dollar needed to take a back seat...

Rick Snyder and lawmakers seek to require state and school employees to contribute more for their health care, last year’s efforts to require contributions for retiree health care has hit another judicial road block. Ingham Circuit Judge James Giddings has ruled that requiring Michigan school employees to pay 3 percent of their wages for health-care coverage in retirement is unconstitutional since the health benefit isn’t guaranteed. The decision follows a February ruling that found a separate...

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin’s polarizing law that curbs union rights has been set aside for about two months after a judge said Friday that a restraining order blocking it would stay in place while she considers whether Republicans passed it illegally. Republicans had been pushing the law through despite a boycott by Democratic state senators and weeks of protests. But they suffered a defeat on Thursday when the same judge, Maryann Sumi of Dane County Circuit Court, declared the law was not enacted last week as Republicans had claimed. Judge Sumi on Friday extended indefinitely a temporary restraining order...

    A Wisconsin judge has challenged the state in its showdown over an explosive union bargaining law as she ordered lawmakers to put the law on hold. Republican lawmakers pushed through passage of the law earlier this month despite massive protests that drew up to 85,000 people to the state Capitol and a boycott by Democratic state senators. Opponents immediately filed a series of lawsuits that resulted in further chaos that might not end until the state Supreme Court weighs in. Apparently she was ignored the first time: Maryann Sumi reiterates her temporary restraining order barring further implementation of 2011 Wisconsin...

    Four communities have rejected “Sustainability” since the first of the year. More will surely follow. To confront sustainability in your community you should learn everything you can about it. More than 600 American communities have entered into agreements with ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives), an international non-government organization created by the United Nations. ICLEI-USA was formed in 1995. ICLEI is a tool of both the U.N. and the federal government, used to transform American cities into “Sustainable Communities.” What is, and is not, sustainable is defined in Agenda 21, a 40-chapter document adopted in 1992 by the United...

Orwell's 1984? No, a scene played out in thousands of classrooms across America. The drumbeat of collectivism begins in preschool. And a long-dead Soviet psychologist helped define that drumbeat. Months ago, an email from a teacher spurred me to investigate the theories of Lev Vygotsky (1896-1934). My research revealed starry-eyed academics enamored of collectivism.

The state's school districts are likely to examine those scores as they decide whether to keep teaching integrated math to their high school students or return to more traditional methods. Of the 20,679 students who took the Math I final in December, 42.6 percent failed it. That's a 19.6 percent increase from the spring, when 114,005...

    Yes, in New York, there's a "capital tax" -- a tax on money you have in the bank. New York, apparently, wants to encourage companies to take as much risk of bankruptcy as possible, by raising or retaining as little cash as possible, so it taxes them on cash they have in the bank. And we raised a whopping $3 million last summer, and we still have it in the bank. So that means we have to pay New York $10,000 of "capital tax" as punishment. Never mind that we've created 45 new jobs in New York and that most...

    As I was reading the thread titles on the main page, just now, my blood began to boil. It's clear to me that the leftist ruling class is making an all-out push to beat the American people to the finish line, and to topple this country before we can implement the reforms required to salvage our beloved republic, our economy, our sovereignty, and our traditional way of life. Claire Wolfe once famously said, "America is at that awkward stage....it's too late to work within the system, and it's too early to start shooting the bastards." I just want to know...

    REMEMBER how so many journalists hated John Howard, who nevertheless won four elections in a row? Remember how almost all the media backed a plan for a republic, only to have it rejected at the 1999 referendum? How often have we seen this gulf in opinion between the mainstream media and the public they report to? I suspect Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s lie may be the latest example. It’s rare to see such overwhelming fury from a public at having been so brazenly deceived by a politician. Before the election, as everyone now knows, Gillard repeatedly promised she would not...

    Madison - A Dane County judge ordered the doors of the Capitol opened Tuesday morning in the run-up to Gov. Scott Walker's budget speech.Dane County Circuit Court Judge Daniel Moeser signed a temporary restraining order Tuesday morning opening the statehouse - at least until a hearing is held on the issue, a step that could come within hours. Walker's Department of Administration had announced a plan earlier in the morning restricting access to the Capitol, which has been filled with demonstrators for two weeks.
