The Weekly Riot: The Redistribution of Everything

President Obama’s administration is quickly evolving from bad to worse. Even without addressing the obvious policy flaws of the healthcare reform debacle (i.e elderly care degeneration, perfervid taxation, and fiscal irresponsibility in a time of economic collapse) the president’s modus operandi is becoming increasingly clear. The pieces fit together very nicely.

Teaching U.S. Kids the U.N. Way

It’s horrible enough to think of the way school children have been deliberately and unnecessarily frightened by the teaching in American schools about “global warming.” Since the 1980s it has been part of the curriculum in schools throughout the nation, convincing a lot of children that the Earth was doomed.

CNN Inciting Race Hate

Seeing how I have personal experience in the matter, I see quite the disturbing coincidence between my going on CNN in 2005 and the rather intolerant (and that’s putting it mildly) response from their viewers, and the rather intolerant response to black Cambridge Police Sgt. Leon Lashley after his interview on that channel.

UN Putting Education in Government’s Hands and the End of Homeschooling

Homeschooling is a growing trend in the United States today. Many thousands of parents wary of government indoctrination of their children, not to mention tired of the plummeting level of actual education threatening our kid’s futures, are taking their children’s education into their own hands and setting up homeschools. The trend is also starting to alarm the bureaucrats in government that count on using our children as a device to bring in state and federal tax money as well as teachers unions that relish the power of controlling our progeny. Consequently, state governments are increasingly looking at regulations meant to hamper homeschooling efforts.

Special thanks to Ms. Donna Miles of the US Department of Defense for providing the information contained in this report to the 14,000-member National Association of Chiefs of Police

Although the Taliban recently issued a “code of conduct” booklet aimed at projecting a more positive image to the Afghan people, their actions directly contradict this goal, according to Donna Miles of the American Forces Press Service.

The Culture Of Corruption Cont

It’s truly amazing how these elected hypocrites really want us to believe they feel our pain while brazenly abusing their perks of power, no matter how shady and unethical those perks may be. Heaven forbid, those who also pledged to clean up Capitol Hill be asked to come clean themselves…

Cops & Sotomayor: Obama says go by feelings

When President Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor for the Supreme Court, he said she was selected because he wanted someone who would show “empathy.” It occurred to me that Obama wants the same behavior from America’s police.

Toronto strike settled – absolutely no surprises

Pending ratification by Toronto City Council, the city has now reached agreements with its 24,000 inside and 6,000 outside workers. The agreements call for annual wage increases of 1.75%, 2% and 2.5% over three years; quite a bit more than the 1%, 1% and 2% that was made in an offer that Mayor David Miller made public a couple of weeks ago when he saw a political advantage in showing Torontonians how tough a union thug-loving mayor could be with his beloved brothers and sisters.
