Reason for Home Schooling

You don't have to read all of this to find a good reason for home schooling your children. I just couldn't get through it. Pretty gross. HT neo-neocon

Obama's Acceptance Speech

Obama is a great speaker. He had the crowd in his hands. I watched it at the Rocky Mountain Blogger Bash and it got a great reception from the mostly younger crowd. He has ideas that get people excited and promised something for everyone. However, out in the real world, humans have two fundamental desires that are mutually incompatible: 1) we all want more free stuff - something for nothing; and 2) we all want more money. I guess neither he nor his supporters have heard that "There ain't no such thing as a free lunch". I was also surprised, although maybe I shouldn't be, that in spite of his claim to support new politics (or something along those lines), he spent a fair amount of time bashing Bush and McCain.

Free Speech

It's been widely reported in the press that the protesters at the Democratic Convention will be confined to "Free Speech" cages and made to suffer other indignities, mostly brought to you/them by Democrats, the party of, well, fascism, really. If I was mayor, I'd let the protesters have the run of the city, with the condition that, if they break so much as a single window or do as much as one dollar's worth of damage to anything, all of their a$$es would be thrown in jail for the next six months. People could decide from their behavior whether the Democrats deserve to be elected.
