School choice provides a better future for our children

school-choice

It’s time to recognize that there is a difference between publicly funded education and public schools. The first represents a commitment to educating our citizenry so that they can contribute to our society and the second is simply one way of delivering the product. It is also demonstrably the least effective means for doing so.…

Faith and morality go hand in hand

morality-sign

Please bear with me. The moral of this article is in the very last paragraph and sentences. It’s about being moral, which we get from faith, and why we need it. I would argue the proper definition of American Exceptionalism is that the United States was founded by the people, granting powers to a government…

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. I recently watched CNN and heard an expert interviewee go unchallenged when she said that the problem of Muslims in France is that they feel disenfranchised.

I have several readers ask me why so many superstar athletes use performance enhancing drugs. In my humble opinion, athletic cheaters cheat because they want fame, fortune, and immortality. Superstars in baseball sign 10-year, $200 million contracts. Mediocre plays earn $5-10 million over the span of a generally short career. The same is true in basketball and…
