The tragedy of America is that God has been taken out of its education system, and without God there is nothing there but nihilism. The goal of "progressives" like Henry A. Giroux is to corrupt students with ideas of social perfectibility that require the destruction of the most productive economic system in history and the rejection of God, the true source of our rights and our freedoms.
The killing of three students by a fellow student at Chardon High School in Chardon, Ohio, on February 27, 2012, indicates that whatever problems existed that led to or caused the massacre at Columbine on April 20, 1999 have not gone away.
How many people know of Maurice Strong — and that he is evil? Maurice Strong has the potential to be the most powerful and most evil dictator the world has ever known — right now — today — in our day and age — and yet, most people have never heard of him.
It would be funny if we weren't paying for it. Now they want us to buy chaperones for our live-wire Secret Service guys. Per year, we already spend $1.7 billion on the Secret Service, double what we spent annually before Mohamed Atta and his crew of inflamed sycophants sought to win perpetual ecstasy with some 72 heavenly hotties per martyr by turning jetliners and themselves into missiles.

The partisan squabbling over the killing of Osama bin Laden is a typical election-year distraction, effectively squelching discussion of more important matters one year after the execution of the al-Qaeda chief executive. While the commentators are engaged in trivialities, big foreign-policy questions are ignored.
One of the goals of education in the early days of this country was to instill a sense of virtue in the young. At that time, most Americans were devoutly Christian. Virtually every family owned a Bible and attended a church. So the concern with rearing virtuous young men and women was the subject of many sermons and tracts.
Al Armendariz, a regional director of the Environmental Protection Agency, was forced to quit his job when some of his intemperate remarks got publicized. It would be great if the same thing happened to a few thousand of his fellow bureaucrats.
Some people may be inspired by President Obama's talk about making "the rich" pay their undefined "fair share" of taxes, or taking away corporations' "tax breaks." But talk is not always cheap. It can be very costly to those working people who are looking for jobs that the Obama administration's anti-business policies are driving overseas.
Anti-bullying programs are social engineering disguised as efforts to encourage civility.
