Jane Jacobs If I were a member of any discrete group – such as might be identified by the kinds of […]

on June 7, 2014, 8:28 AM / in Opinion

By Michael Gaddy (Authors note: All too many Americans accept the unconstitutional tyrannical government we have today, including the waging of unconstitutional wars, all of which saw its genesis in Abraham Lincoln and his Republican Party minions.

Babies Die from Federal Medical Experiments

Federal officials are defending an unconscionable act. Between 2005 and 2009, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) supported research on 1,316 premature newborns without requiring parents to be told their baby could die and the baby’s oxygen monitor would not show their child’s true oxygen level – a violation of their own ethics rules, reports Sharyl Attkisson at The Daily […]

Private Schools Should Pass ‘Mary McLeod Bethune Test’ The Florida Legislature has considered a tax-credit scholarship program to help financially challenged families. Some senators insist that for the proposal to pass, private schools must administer the same standardized tests as public schools.
