Georgia Takes Back Some Academic Freedom

In Georgia, academic freedom is a mixed bag. Legislators in that state have accepted Common Core standards, which gives the federal government unprecedented control over testing standards in individual states. As one of 22 states in the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers,  they handed over some of their local control to federal overseers. However, Georgia took steps this week to maintain some level autonomy.

Hobby Lobby Wins Temporary Exemption From Contraceptive Mandate

Hobby Lobby has stood strong this year while the government repeatedly attempted to infringe on the owners’ first amendment right to freely exercise religion. The public organized a day to support the store’s right not to offer abortifacients as part of their health care plan, as the founders believe life begins at conception.

Common Core Battle Flares in Michigan

Today, the fight on Common Core heated up with the first hearing on the topic in Michigan. On one hand is the more liberal wing of the legislature which feels that the Common Core standards would set a high bar for academic achievement across the country.

Fatburger, Obamacare, and Responsibility

In Obama’s America, responsibility is not a virtue. In fact, those who act responsibly routinely get the short end of the stick. Why would anyone play by the rules when the safety net is better than playing by the rules in the first place? The latest victim of this culture are the companies who, wisely, have begun the process of implementing the changes necessary for Obamacare compliance.

Calling it Independence Day

The Fourth of July is just a date. It is nothing but the technical name for the day stuck between July 3rd and July 5th. I suppose the date is more than satisfactory for fireworks and barbecues, but that’s not what the day is about. Doesn’t the day which celebrates our independence, our freedom, and the very essence of what it means to be American deserve a more distinguished name? Whatever happened to “Independence Day?”

"Green" Cars Aren't as Clean as Promoted

The American government loves electric cars. President Obama dreams of having a million of them on our roads, and our government is actively promoting them. While picking winners and losers, the government has used taxpayer money to back quite a few losers over the years.

The NFL is Selling Obamacare?

Whenever President Obama is in a bind, he turns to his celebrity supporters. They prop him up when he’s wavering and help remind everyone how “cool” he is and that he's part of their team. With Obamacare implementation due to begin this fall, our government is bringing in the National Football League and its stars to bolster enrollment in the unpopular program.

Michigan Education Reform Includes Stopping Common Core

When we think of states to look to in terms of free markets and the responsibility of personal choices, most of us wouldn’t think of Michigan first, or second. Let’s face it, Michigan wouldn’t crack most peoples’ top ten. However, Michigan is making progress; away from so-called progressivism. Michigan’s shiny new status as a right-to-work state is one of the biggest steps towards this new, freer Michigan.  It is moving away from its union-tied nanny-state history. What should not be overlooked, though, is what Michigan is doing in education.
