Black History Month: Do We Still Need It In Its Current Form?

Whenever Black History Month comes around, I experience mixed feelings stemming from its celebration in the Department of Defense schools that I attended during my childhood.  It was always a time of shame and mockery mixed with defiant force for us. We weren't permitted to sit it out, we were commanded to celebrate, which took a lot of the fun out of it.  I always wondered why the history of black people had to be confined to a single month instead of being inside the history books along with the rest.

Little Boy Plays Hero At School and Is Suspended

Here’s when you know that political correctness running amok hurts real people: when tiny children engaging in imaginary play are punished for pretending to be heroes.  Although it seems impossible, it’s exactly what happened to a seven year old second grade youngster in Loveland Colorado. LOVELAND, Colo. — A 2nd grader has been suspended from school in Loveland for a make believe game he was playing.

Judicial Overreach in Kansas Means Higher Taxes

A three judge panel comprising the Shawnee Country District Court in Kansas has ruled that the Legislature violated the state Constitution by reducing funding for public education.  The cuts have come at a time when local governments have struggled to collect enough tax revenue to fund local services and initiatives.  The lawsuit, brought by a coalition of 54 Kansas school districts was hailed as a victory by Alan Rupe, the plaintiff’s attorney.

Colin Powell No Longer Represents the Republican Party

In comments of late, Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, a decorated military veteran with impeccable credentials, has shown a proclivity for adopting an adversarial stance towards the GOP.   As one of the most prominent figures in the party over the past two decades through his military service and cabinet positions, Powell has always had a decidedly positive imprint on the reputation of the GOP with his name constantly rising as a possible presidential contender.

It's Time to Put an End to the Tribe Mentality

What is the tribe mentality?   It's loosely defined as submitting yourself to the group think of the greater control group that you should stereotypically belong to: in this case a person's racial identity group.

Low information voters present our biggest challenge for the GOP

In this video by Benny Johnson at the Blaze, he queries young college students about who they're standing in line to vote for and why.  He asks a number of questions that would seem obvious to anyone waiting two hours to cast a ballot.  The responses would be hilarious if there wasn't so much at stake from the biggest election loss young Americans have seen in their lifetime.

Handicapping the GOP after Tuesday's loss

Tuesday night was brutal.  If Republicans ever doubted that our message wasn't getting through or that we face a formidable enemy with all of the right supporters - unions, foreign interests, the government, the entire media complex, higher education, and K-12 Education, that illusion has been forever shattered.

Senator Rand Paul Exposes the Folly of US Foreign Aid

Foreign Aid: where does the insanity end? Is foreign aid a Democrat or Republican issue?  According to Sen. Rand Paul, it is a bipartisan effort that is an untouchable.  That’s right, both sides of the political spectrum expect to continue aid without question.  If graft and abuse are found, the answer is to simply send more.
