Islamic Global Jihad declared war against America on September 11, 2001, in an attack that killed nearly 3000 Americans in the Twin Towers in Manhattan, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and in four hijacked airliners. Had the fourth airliner succeeded in reaching Washington, it might have crashed into the White House or the Capitol with even more loss of life. But, thanks to the brave passengers on the plane, the attack was thwarted and the plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.
Most Americans are under the impression that Communism was invented by Karl Marx and Lenin and first practiced in the Soviet Union. The truth, however, is quite different.
The nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court by President Obama seems to ignore the democratic notion that members of the Supreme Court ought to represent a wide constituency of Americans.
There is no doubt that American educators are engaged in a criminal conspiracy to dumb-down the American people. Charlotte Iserbyt, in her definitive book, The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, has documented the process so thoroughly that there can be no doubt about the intentions of our educators and the fact that the conspiracy is being financed by the richest liberal foundations and the federal government.
It is estimated that in the United States between 4 million and 8 million children are on Ritalin, the drug being used to change the behavior of children afflicted with a disease or condition called Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder ADHD.
The eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull (I-jaf-jalla-jokull) volcano on April 14, 2010, is being compared to Krakatoa’s famous eruption on August 27, 1883 which had a great effect on weather patterns for the next few months. It seems that its Icelandic equivalent might have the same effect — creating a period of global cooling. This invalidates all of those computer models created by climate-change fanatics warning us of an earth becoming unbearably hot with oceans rising and covering all coastal cities. So Al Gore must be worried.
Jay Leno, in his amusing Jay Walking adventures, interviews young Americans whose appalling ignorance of history, geography and other areas of basic knowledge has become the subject of great hilarity. Many of them couldn't tell you who was buried in Grant's tomb.
The announcement about a year ago by the New York Times that it might close down the venerable Boston Globe, unless the paper could cut costs and begin to make money, came as a shock to many Bostonians. The Times bought the Globe in 1993 for $1.1 billion because it assumed that in an area with Harvard, MIT, Tufts, Boston University, Boston College and other schools of higher leaning, they would have lots of liberal readers and make lots of money. But this much-touted Athens of America, which prides itself on its intellectual history, has become, like the rest of America, a victim of our general literacy decline.
Is homeschooling compatible with socialism and vice-versa? Apparently not, for homeschooling means parental control of education, and that is anathema to socialists.
History is not taught very well in today's public schools, and that is why the history of the Democratic Party is totally unknown by the American voting public. Believe it or not, the Democratic Party was inspired by those Southern delegates to the Constitutional Convention of 1787 who forced all of the other delegates to accept the institution of slavery as the price of their participation in the new government. That is why the Southern states were able to count each slave as three-fifths of a person in determining the number of representatives the state could send to Congress.
