  • Top 10 things homeschooled children and parents get to do while everyone else is in school – by Sara Mcgrath – Helium
  • Judge Tells Juror: Stop Tweeting In My Courtroom – Seattle News – The Daily Weekly – Is it just me, or has the jury system strayed so far from what it once was that these kinds of things were doomed to create a problem. I mean, I believe there was a reason that “my peers” meant more than just people that were in the same station in life– they were actually supposed to be “my peers” and they were supposed to bring their experience in the trial to bring forth justice. Now, in the name of justice, they can’t communicate with anyone else, they’re not supposed to consider anything but what’s presented, they’re selected based on whether they’ve heard anything about the case, and now they’re not allowed to communicate out what’s going on… I tell ya.
  • The Yeshiva World EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: NYC Legislators Seek Ban On Full Body Scanners In New York « » Frum Jewish News – Greenfield’s proposed legislation would ban these full body scanners from all New York City buildings, not just airports. In several cities around the United States, these full body scanners are used in government buildings. Most recently, it was discovered that US Marshalls at an Orlando, Florida federal courthouse saved over 35,000 nude images in their scanner.
  • ‘I’m a Saboteur.’ – “There is no simple formula, but fortunately a crude formula will work to get started. If you cut the guaranteed river of revenue that flows into the monopoly, the problem will solve itself — quicker in some places than in others. But over time, it will happen. We should break up institutional schools, decertify teaching, and let anyone who has a mind to teach bid for customers. Trust the customers to know if they’re being cheated, and then give them a way to try something different.” — I think that I’ve posted somewhere on this blog exactly the same idea. Glad I’m not the only one.
  • Amid airport anger, GOP takes aim at screening | Washington Examiner – Did you know that airports can opt out of the TSA screeners? Neither did I. I wonder if more would if less people chose to fly?

  • Christian Quotes of the Founding Fathers (Page 3) – “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”
  • Greenspan Says Lower Taxes Good, Outrageous Deficit Spending Bad | All American Blogger
  • Deficit Panel Targets Areas to Cut – WSJ.com – “To balance the budget by 2015, excluding interest payments on debt, means officials would need to find roughly $240 billion in annual savings, according to commission documents. Panel officials also hope to issue recommendations that would “meaningfully improve” the country’s long-term fiscal situation.” – If I read this right, this is just balancing the budget, not getting out of debt. And even this number is couched with “excluding interest payments on debt.” Man, what a hole we’re in!

  • Clinton urges voters to embrace Reid – News – ReviewJournal.com – “If you knew who’s giving the money, you would know that the ads weren’t true,” Clinton said, without citing any specific political action committee. — Looks like former Pres. Clinton is calling someone liars, interesting coming from him.
  • Vox Popoli: The consequence of female choices – Women choosing to work instead of raise a family directly impacts the ability of men to find jobs that pay to support this “choice”. And the antithesis is also true…
  • Sharron Angle surge unnerving Nevada Democrats – Molly Ball – POLITICO.com – Harry Ried, the Majority Leader in the Senate with the most power, could be defeated by a Tea Party opponent… pretty amazing if you ask me.
  • Sex and consequences – “Some people wonder why I sometimes post on the topic of homosexuality on my pro-life blog. It’s because the abortion and homosexual movement are flip sides of the same coin. Both want illicit sex without consequences. Both want to stop social conservatives from educating about the consequences. And both want taxpayers to pay dfor[sic] the inevitable consequences when they develop.” – Exactly
  • Atheists Outdo Some Believers in Survey on Religion – NYTimes.com – This article is a bit misleading. While, on the face of it, its title and opening paragraphs are meant to bolster the old claim that atheists know more about “religion” than believers, when you actually read the article in question (after you get past the atheist gloating) you read this gem: “On questions about the Bible and Christianity, the groups that answered the most right were Mormons and white evangelical Protestants.” What?! Atheists don’t know more about the Bible than Protestants? Kinda makes the comment from the atheist about giving his daughter a Bible to make her an atheist carry less weight, doesn’t it?
