California School District Has History of Violating Students’ Religious Rights

If you were a school teacher who didn’t want any of your students to mention the real reason for Christmas, why would you give them an assignment to bring something from home that represented a family Christmas tradition? Last December, a first grade teacher in Temecula, California gave her first graders that assignment.  One girl brought a Star of Bethlehem ornament that tops her family’s Christmas tree.  When it was the girl’s turn...

Marco Rubio: Obamacare Was Designed To Fail

News managers and staffers would be interviewed by agency officials about the content that they choose to report on and how they choose certain stories.

Good For Markets, Good For The Self: An Ode To Competition

Competition has an amazing effect on humans. One of the very first competitions (of sorts) was between Cain and Abel of the Book of Genesis. Cain lost that competition and, being the sore loser that he was, smashed his brother Abel’s skull. Humans are evil and can find any reason to exercise their evil wills, be it competition, as Abel learned, or money or power or whatever you can think of. Just because competition can lead to...
