According to a recent report by the Centers for Disease Control, a staggering 6.4 million American children between the ages of 4 and 17 have been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), whose key symptoms are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity—characteristics that most would consider typically childish behavior.
Americans have always had a special place in their hearts for a good hustle, though we never admit to being victims ourselves. This is how hustlers get away with it. After all, who wants others to know they’ve been conned? So, everyone talks himself into thinking he’s made a rational decision and is doing precisely what he wants to do. This is how the homosexual lobby and their "useful idiots" are hustling America.
Because you're too stupid to figure it out, South Dakota government (which is run by "Republicans"), if you have a child, you're going to be forced to watch a video which imparts the cutting-edge and previously unsuspected news that (gasp), babies cry a lot for the first several months.
The U.S. Justice Department is doubling down on the Administration’s anti-faith stance with a lawsuit against a German family seeking religious asylum in the United States. According to our esteemed Attorney General, the right to choose the best education for your child is not a fundamental individual liberty. When it comes to the education of our children, the government – not the parents – is the final authority.
Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Obama Administration's Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to obtain records related to the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), a program that compensates patients who have been adversely affected by certain vaccines, including Gardasil, the vaccine for the sexually transmitted disease human papillomavirus.
By now, most Americans have heard about the TX teen who is suing her parents for pressuring her to have an abortion. The young lady is 16 years old, as is her boyfriend. Obviously, this is not a scenario most parents envision for their young daughters. If the girl's allegations against her parents are true, however, then this case demonstrates a sad fact about the state of America's moral compass. We have gotten to a point where we'd rather see our child endure the trauma of an abortion than see her be "punished with a baby," as our President so memorably said.
President Obama's proposal to expand Head Start harkens back Plato’s Republic, which advocated children be mandatorily placed in the care of the state guardians at very young ages. Yet findings from the Department of Education found the program was ineffective at best. At least Obama can pretend he "cares" about the children.
There has been a dramatic rise in the sale of antidepressants in the past decade alone. According to IMS Health, sales of antidepressants in the United States surpassed $11 billion in 2010. This dramatic increase in usage could possibly be in direct connection to the controversial TeenScreen survey given to children as young as 9 years old in public schools. TeenScreen has been responsible for policing the mental health of students over the past decade.
Obama has again added to his long train of abuses against We the People, this time in the education of American school children. Obama has illegally implemented an extensive overhaul of public education from kindergarten through high school, bypassing Congress (again), the voice of the American people, and inducing states to agree to major changes that none of his predecessors attempted.
The U.S. Department of Education quietly released a report right before Christmas (when they knew most Americans would be too busy to notice) with bad news for the $180 billion Head Start program. Not only is there little to no benefit from this multi-billion dollar program by the time a child reaches the first grade, by the time the child reaches the third grade, you might as well have thrown several billion dollars down a hole.Next Page »
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
