Put The Brakes on Common Core by Terry Martin

The experts who support it describe Common Core (CC) as “A tighter set of smarter standards focused on developing critical learning skills instead of mastering fragmented bits of knowledge.” “It equalizes the playing field by raising expectations for all children, especially those suffering the worst effects of the “drill and kill” test prep norms of the recent past.”

APPALLED

Appalled’ by letter writer

Regarding the writer who is “appalled” that anyone would dare think that a young person would question the attributes of the ACA, I can only assume her head is stuck in the sand.

Writer, are you appalled that six million families have had their insurance policies canceled because of this Unaffordable law? Are you appalled that many patients have lost their policies, doctors, and hospitals despite the President promising otherwise?…

COMMON CORE IS NOT THE WAY by Tim Lintz

COMMON CORE IS NOT THE WAY

Common Core is a set of guidelines instituted by a Federal mandate to change and control our children’s educational standards. This change and control impacts all of us even if we do not have children in school at this time.  We should all understand how Common Core is impacting us as a country.

Common Core is a special interest takeover of education that replaces local control with national standards, treating every child as…

Modern Political Conservatism: A Preliminary Obituary

 First, let me describe what I believe to be traditional or true political conservatism.  True political conservatism has five core principles: (1) Respect for the Constitution and its literal interpretation, (2) Limited federal government and respect for state’s rights, (3) Fiscal responsibility - low taxes, balanced budget, and low debt, (4) Individual liberty – defense of the Bill of Rights, and (5) A strong military.  The word conservatism, of course, may also apply to religious and moral…See More
