A few years back we had the big “School to Work” effort that many conservatives opposed and, and over time, that faded away, at least publicly. Well, now here we are with […]

Recently we marked the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Think about how many of the young people we are seeing support socialism and/or communism that weren’t even alive or were infants when this happened – including some in Congress!!!

As I continue to research this issue, I continue to be completely dismayed and heartbroken for our children and the way parents are not protecting them, and in some cases, cooperating and pushing this travesty on their own children.

It seems that we are being inundated on every side with stories about the ‘transgender’ issue and the troubling results. One really can’t avoid the issue and neither can your children. This personal testimony of a mother who has faced this with two of her children is instructive. “As soon as you say you’re trans, you turn into a star. And […]

Well, as we can see below,  higher education has its problems too.  There is just no way for parents to be too attentive or careful enough in looking at what their students are being exposed to, even in college.
