UN Demands Obama “Nullify” Stand Your Ground Laws

on September 5, 2013, 8:31 AM / in National News, News

Orwellian Nightmare: Data-mining Your Kids

on August 12, 2013, 3:47 PM / in National News, News, Opinion

One of the most troubling aspects of the “education reforms” currently being advanced by the Obama administration and its allies is the unprecedented monitoring and tracking of students — invasions of privacy so pervasive George Orwell might blush.
