H.R. 5 – Federal Stranglehold on Education (Including Private Schools)

February 24, 2015 // 4 Comments

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker, John Boehner, is trying to push an education bill through the house this week that he claims, “…contains a number of conservative reforms to reduce the federal footprint, restore local control, and empower parents and local leaders to hold schools accountable.”  Sounds great right up until one actually reads the 600+ page bill that was only introduced February 3, 2015. How is [Read More ... ]

Dr. King on Religious Freedom

January 19, 2015 // 0 Comments

Today we commemorate the life and work of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Many Progressives uphold Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., as an example of Progressive ideology.  Yet, how many Progressives have taken the time to actually read what Dr. King had to say about so many ideas he held in common with the Founding Fathers?  Progressives have spent the past century undermining many ideas and values upheld by both Dr. King and [Read More ... ]

Liberty is Too Dear – Stand Now for Principles of Liberty

January 15, 2015 // 2 Comments

Americans would do well to learn from the Founding Fathers what makes good government.  Unfortunately, for those of us who love America and who love the ideas the Founding Fathers embraced – the Principles of Liberty – we see all too clearly that America will learn at a price too dear, and too late, what is necessary for good government.  That is unless we wake up those around us before it is all too late.  Just the [Read More ... ]

Stand With Senator Patrick Colbeck

January 9, 2015 // 0 Comments

Americans witnessed this week our elected representatives in Congress dance to a different tune than the rest of the country is singing.  While Americans jammed the Capitol switchboard urging Congress to elect a new Speaker of the House to replace John Boehner, only 25 members of Congress actually demonstrated the courage to buck the wishes of the House leadership, and to instead vote the will of the People.  We the People have become [Read More ... ]

Constitution Day Assignment

September 17, 2014 // 1 Comment

Being a teacher who seeks to uphold and defend both the spirit and the letter of U.S. Constitutional law, I put together the video below in order to present to my students the core nature of our Constitution from the Founding Fathers’ point of view.  I also sought to overcome obstacles imposed by the 12 years of left-leaning public schooling most of my students have already endured.  As such, I intentionally used quotes from John [Read More ... ]

IRS Abuse: We Must Retake U.S. Senate

September 9, 2014 // 0 Comments

Good question @BradThor , imagine the trouble you and I would be in if we did not produce tax documentation (up to the past 7 years) during an IRS audit!  IRS agents claim they have lost e-mails subpoenaed by Congress.  Never mind the fact that all employees at the IRS have their e-mail backed-up on a super computer.  Obama claimed he would maintain the most transparent presidential administration ever.  Obama has said a lot of things that [Read More ... ]

Union Leftists Left Us Long Before We Left Them

August 30, 2014 // 3 Comments

This week my wife and I finally exercised our freedom to work liberated from compulsory membership in the Michigan Education Association.  Both of us generated a letter to the Michigan Education Association via the Mackinac Center for Public Policy’s website, August Opt-Out.   Dropping that envelope through the slot, I felt free as I walked away from the post office knowing we had finally severed ties with an organization [Read More ... ]

Infanticide’s Advocates Just Like 19th Century Racists

August 27, 2014 // 0 Comments

If you had lived in Germany in the 1930s, would you have maintained friendship with someone who volunteered for the SS?  I “unfriended” a callous advocate of infanticide yesterday and I don’t regret it. His callous explanation of why he advocates infanticide was so pathetic that I finally told him he needs to go on the same kind of march Eisenhower forced German civilians to take past their own death camps. The SS [Read More ... ]

“Fluke” OR … Ingenious Check on Power?

August 22, 2014 // 0 Comments

Following a Facebook post in which I promoted Monday’s article, “Want Unity? Uphold the Platform!“, someone remarked that Michigan’s State Constitution contains a “fluke” that permits Republican Party delegates to elect the party’s candidate for Lieutenant Governor at State Nominating Convention.  Here is my response to that erroneous view of principle of Liberty technically known as a Check on Power.  [Read More ... ]
