Senator Withdraws Home School Bill
December 20, 2013 05:28 PM PST
by Steve Eastman, Wait Til You Hear This
We told you the other day about Ohio Senator Capri Cafaro's legislation for controlling homeschooling in the state. Senate Bill 248 would have required parents interested in educating their children at home to be investigated by Social Services. The plan was for parents and children to be interviewed separately. And don't forget about the background checks.

Most football players are discouraged after getting dropped by an NFL team. The New England Patriots did just that to Tim Tebow in August. But he's not discouraged.

Recently a coalition of liberal and Tea Party politicians tried to rein in the National Security Agency. Their legislation almost passed. Perhaps a similar effort will succeed next time. That's because both mainstream and alternative media are now reporting more of Big Brother's intrusions into our lives.USDA Regulates Magical Rabbits

It's kind of like having your cake and eating it too. An LGBT group is officially recognized, but the practice of homosexuality is not. Is this legitimate accomodation or unacceptable compromise?
Liberal Group Squawks Against Diversity at Indiana Campus
July 12, 2013 07:33 PM PDT
Could it be that much of the talk we've heard about diversity of viewpoints was just an excuse to make it easier to take over the institutions of society? And now that long-held values have been largely discarded, it is often no longer convenient to even mention the subject. Political correctness has taken the place of diversity. But one Indiana University still values academic freedom enough to hire an astronomer well-known for his creationist views.Spider Man Actor Suggests Exploring the Hero's Gay Side

Remember that original Spider-Man kiss with Toby McGuire and Kirsten Dunst? He's hanging upside down. She's standing upright. And they're both oblivious to the rain. The new Spider-Man — Andrew Garfield — has a suggestion that would play havoc with that movie memory.They Should Have Called It "The Lone Ranger Bites the Dust"

No, John Reid, AKA the Lone Ranger, is still alive at the end of the movie, but not much can be said for the chances of the character showing up in sequels.
I was news director of a radio station for almost 10 years, trained by a future anchor of National Public Radio. During that time I won 16 awards from Associated Press and the Radio/TV News Directors Association. I've also hosted talk radio and cable television programs and worked as assignment editor for a network TV affiliate. I currently concentrate most of my journalistic energies on videos and podcasts. I want to tell the stories we need to hear that are conveniently ignored by the mainstream media. I feel that the way you deliver a message can be almost as important as the content, because it reflects on its credibility. In our society too much effort goes into promoting consumerism and not enough into championing the really important things.
