Line of the week

The best line of the week comes from National Review’s Jonah Goldberg writing about the genocide supporter at UCSD. This endorsement of genocide is brought to you by Aristotle. For the record, the answer to Goldberg’s question whether the UCSD administration would cite freedom of speech and diversity of viewpoints if a student advocated the […]

Idiot of the month

The result was predictable. I mentioned last week that a couple of Live Oak High School administrators had removed five students from school for wearing T-shirts featuring the American flag on Cinco de Mayo. Well, the fallout has been predictable. The heightened police presence was due in part to rumors swirling around the school Thursday […]

No intelligence required

I’m really not sure how to appropriately gauge the level of stupidity on display here by school administrators. Five Live Oak High School students' First Amendment rights were challenged this morning when they were asked to leave school because they donned American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. Officials at the school chose not to […]

Ivory tower cowards

When a bunch of mullahs manufactured outrage a few years back over some largely innocuous cartoon depictions of the "prophet" Muhammed, hundreds died as rioting followed. In covering the violence, most American newspapers and magazines declined to publish even the most tame of the cartoons out of what they said was a desire not to […]

What First Amendment?

Once again, college administrators have demonstrated that they don't think the First Amendment applies to the campus: Two students who were threatened with suspension at the College of Alameda after one of them prayed with an ailing teacher in a faculty office can sue the community college district for allegedly violating their freedom of speech, […]

Earlier this year, tucked in the massive stimulus bill, was a sop to the teachers union in Washington, D.C. The bill effectively killed the D.C. opportunity scholarships that gave a few lucky poor children an out from D.C.'s atrocious public school system. I'm not a proponent of taxpayer-funded vouchers for kids generally. I think the […]

The San Diego Unified School District apparently believes there's little difference between Junior ROTC programs and street gangs. Marksmanship training must end on San Diego school district campuses, a split school board decided Tuesday. Critics argued that the training, part of ROTC programs, sends the wrong message when three high school students have been killed […]

Obama's education pick

It is really no surprise that President-elect Barack Obama would pick the schools chief from his hometown, Arne Davis, to be education secretary in his administration. Obama would've certainly come to know Davis during his time heading the failed Chicago Annenberg Challenge -- a fact that seems absent from most of today's news reporting. (You […]

Agriculture and American life

The class was AG301 and one of the general education requirements at Cal Poly SLO. The class was three times a week and consisted of two classroom lectures (Mondays and Wednesdays) and a "field trip" each Friday. The field trips could be eye-opening for kids like me whose encounters with farming was limited to seeing […]

My health is good

Earlier this month I wrote that if President-elect Obama and his wife decided to send his daughters to a public school in the Washington, D.C. area, I'd have a minor heart attack. Well, no worries for my ticker: Obama spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter confirms to CNN the Obama daughters will attend Sidwell Friends school in Washington, […]

SEN. LANKFORD: "Can you help me get a good definition of 'birthing people?'"

BECERRA: "We're trying to be precise in the language that's used."

SEN. LANKFORD: "Mom is a pretty good word. That's worked for a while."

Ummm...who elected her? Is there something wrong with the guy we did elect? What do we pay the FLOTUS? A "United States government official"?

Prepping for the G7.

One of the most frightening articles I've ever read.

So, @SLOTribune columnist and local Democratic party apparatchik Tom Fulks was on local radio last night and told listeners that the difference between the Democratic and Republican parties is that the Democratic Party wants to help people and the GOP wants to hurt people 1/
