Casey Anthony, the young woman arrested and tried for having murdered her three-year-old daughter, has just been acquitted of the most serious charges that had been leveled against her. Scores of people who had been following this case closely from the beginning are outraged over the verdict. Like O.J. Simpson 16 years earlier, Anthony, they swear, just got away with murder.

If you are a conservative, a Christian, a libertarian or just a concerned parent and have children in the public schools, you need to attend a homeschool convention. You have to know that there is a wonderful alternative to the government school where children are being deliberately dumbed down in order to serve an increasingly perverse authoritarian state. And when you come away from that convention you’ll know why your child deserves something better than public-school politically correct indoctrination.

The most potent “reality check,” especially among industrialized nations like ours, is the one discovered by accident. It’s the one that can’t be scripted, the one that makes a person sit up and say “Whoa!!”

Believe it or not, sexual assault has its defenders — and they’re not just behind bars for rape or pedophilia.Nor do they exclusively “work” for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the federal bureaucracy that has decreed its sociopaths may “actually [touch] my vagina four times,” as Susie Castillo, former Miss USA and recent victim, put it.  “[The assailant] went up both legs from behind and then turned around and did it from the front.” (Incredibly, chillingly, the TSA justified this gate-rape just as it did its molestation of six-year-old Anna Drexel and 95-year-old Lena Reppert: “A rep for TSA [says], ‘We have reviewed [Ms. Castillo’s] screening experience and found that the officer followed proper procedures.’")

It’s a question I’ve been asking many people. And they have no real answer. But the reason why the cost of computers keeps going down is because of the genius, ingenuity, and competence of the private sector. The new computers are not only cheaper but offer so many new features that we can barely keep up with these great innovations.

It used to be very expensive to make a transatlantic call. Now it costs only pennies. Again, the private sector is reality oriented. Private business knows that the lower the cost of a product, the more customers you get.
