With nearly 20 years of teaching experience, I have a unique educational perspective. Unlike most, I have spent a lengthy amount of time in each of the K-12 education arenas, public, private, and home school. This also includes operating from a strictly secular approach, a strictly Christian approach and somewhat of a mix of the two.
There was a very interesting occurrence in Major League Baseball recently that had the sports world abuzz.
Much to my wife's dismay, I very much enjoy the 2000 comedy-adventure "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" Directed by the Coen brothers, the film chronicles the adventures and misadventures of three escaped convicts masterfully played by George Clooney, John Turturro and Tim Blake Nelson.
The NAACP recently decided to (surprise!) side with President Barack Obama and liberals across the U.S. and endorse same-sex marriage. The board of directors for the organization released a statement declaring that "civil marriage is a civil right and a matter of civil law." Roslyn Brock, chairman of the NAACP's board of directors, declared "We have and will oppose efforts to codify discrimination into law."
Well, it looks like Barack Obama was born in Kenya. At least that's what a booklet produced by his former literary agency said in 1991.
I would like to thank the Obama administration for validating the premise of my last column ("Our entitlement addiction"). In case you forgot, in the column I declared that today's poster children for our entitlement society are the two recent winners of million dollar lotteries in the state of Michigan - Amanda Clayton and Leroy Fick - who enthusiastically continued receiving their state welfare after winning their fortunes.
Never has there been a clearer manifestation of the absurdity that our entitlement culture has wrought than what occurred recently in the state of Michigan - not once, but twice.
Following the contentious arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court over Obamacare, liberals across the country have become very nervous. As well they should be. The hostile line of questioning endured by President Barack Obama's Solicitor General Donald Verrilli resulted in near unanimity with political pundits of every persuasion across the country: Obamacare is in deep, deep trouble.
With a win in Illinois, Mitt Romney continues to build on his delegate lead, and thus, on his air of inevitability, in the race for the GOP nomination for president.
One of the greatest deceptions perpetuated by the mainstream media concerning the American political scene is that whenever the "social issues" are prominent in election debate, conservatives lose.
In the months prior to the 2008 U.S. presidential election, then-candidate Barack Obama said, "The first thing I'll do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act."
It was inevitable. Only those who are principally opposed to abortion can withstand the onslaught that the left is sure to unleash when there is even the appearance of being pro-life.
One of the most beloved men in the history of humanity is the second king of Israel, King David. The "ruddy and handsome" young man, who was the legendary slayer of the Philistine giant Goliath, is a transcendent figure, significant not only within the religious realm, but the world over.
After the fall of the Czarist government in 1917, Vladimir Lenin, founder and leader of the Bolshevik Party, returned to Russia to seize power. The Marxists who would eventually rule Russia first met in 1898. Calling themselves the Russian Socialist Democratic Labour Party, the group would later split in 1903, and the Bolsheviks were born. Bolshevik means "majority."
In this Christmas season, as we celebrate the greatest gift the world has ever known, I thought it appropriate to address the issue of giving, especially among those who call themselves Christians.
We see it time and again. Whether the problem is poverty, bad schools, gun violence, crime in general or even the spread of disease, the liberal answer is always the same: more government. The recent gun debate raging in America illustrates this well.
