I’ll Still Vouch for Vouchers

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

If a local church in your community were to catch fire, should your local fire department let it burn to the ground? If a local priest, minister or rabbi were being robbed, should the cops just drive by and tell him he’s out of luck? Or should the government make it illegal for you to […]

Dem Maps

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

Indianapolis City-County Council Democrats Monday night unveiled their version of new district maps, despite the promise of a veto by Mayor Greg Ballard.

Teachers vs. Tony

Saturday, November 10th, 2012

It is no big secret that the Indiana State Teachers Association and their members launched a successful social media campaign to defeat Republican Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Tony Bennett.  I’ve come across some of their correspondence and decided to reprint one e-mail in particular.   Frankly, I think the Hitler video is a little over […]
