On December 14th, 2000, as the holiday season was getting into full swing in Wichita Kansas, five young men and women, all professionals with bright careers in front of them were taken hostage in a townhouse.

The first step in understanding the public education mess is to realize that IT’S NOT ABOUT MONEY. Teachers — despite the widespread myth — are overpaid and underworked.

Huey Long was once asked whether he thought fascism could ever come to America. His answer was “Yeah, but it’ll come calling itself anti-fascism.” America isn’t close to such a future, but I couldn’t help thinking about Long’s comment in connection with an episode that occurred recently at my alma mater.

The Right Needs to Stop Acting Like the Left if it Wants the High Ground


Have you ever felt like people meant well, but they just aren’t helping your cause?
I have no desire to attack the Right. If anything, I will do everything in my power to encourage anyone and everyone who is willing to work to replace this sliver of the far-Left that is currently running our country. However, [...]
