The Christian religion is the religion of our country. From it are derived our prevalent notions of the character of God, the great moral governor of the universe. On its doctrines are founded the peculiarities of our free institutions. — foreword of McGuffey’s Reader, 1836 (McGuffey’s books were the mainstays of American education for generations)

Without the Big O, You Can’t Build That

Obama's Julia

Obama’s Julia

Meet Julia. She doesn’t have a last name, but just like you—under “Big O” of course—she has Daddy Government to lean on. When she can’t pay her student loans, eh… payment schmayment. When she gets old, Mr. G. will provide new wheels from The Scooter Store. Grand Canyon, here she comes!

But come on, that’s not love. Daddy G can do better. He can meet Julia step-for-step with all the love, care and poisonous affection of big, sloppy kisses from government programs. And by step-for-step, I mean from birth till death do us part.

Life of Julia Government

The above, albeit biasedly, summarizes the Obama campaign’s “The Life of Julia.” It’s a graphic illustration reminding us of everything Big O has done to take care of our entire life. On several pages representing Julia’s milestone ages, her parents’ love, encouragement and support is never mentioned. In fact, we’re left to assume her parents simply exist.

Also, the timeline rarely references any influence of first jobs or extracurricular activities. Why? She’s got Daddy G and we know that because “President Obama” is mentioned 19 times on… Just. 12. Pages. This is a powerful picture of how close Big O wants government to our
everyday lives.

If you’ll remember, President Obama said, “If you’ve got a business—you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

“The Life of Julia” revises that by saying, “If you’re going to have a life or business—you can’t build that. Somebody else—I mean.. uh.. government—will make that happen.”

Think that’s a stretch? Despite the eeriness, let’s hit the highlights of Julia’s life. We’ll cover two, but notice when the milestones land, what they are, and the government’s role. For fun, you can check me by tallying how many times Big O’s narcissism shows up.

Daddy G’s Got You

Age 18: Julia qualifies for “President Obama’s American Opportunity Tax Credit—worth up to $10,000 over four years.” Plus, she qualifies for a Pell Grant, all to put a college education “within reach.”

It sounds incredible. Nonetheless, if the President hadn’t signed over 80 percent of the student loan market to Daddy G, colleges would’ve been forced to compete for Millennials’ business.

And without the guarantee of federal loan checks, university presidents could’ve built leaner institutions by cutting costs—making government spending on tax credits less necessary.

Age 42: Julia wants to start her own web-based business. Come on, Julia, ask Daddy G nicely. What do you know? “She qualifies for a Small Business Administration loan….” Before you know it, she’ll be creating jobs—forced to remember she couldn’t and didn’t do it without the government.

Her creativity and hard work will have meant nothing because, “… there are a whole bunch of hard-working people out there.” Of course, if she doesn’t remember, the President will jog her memory (e.g., “… you didn’t build that.”).

Look, the President sees government as the origin to everything. It’s tucked in our swaddling clothes as an infant and buried with us at life’s end. Our dreams and creativity can’t be the start because the President can’t control that. And if he can’t control that, we might become an evil, capitalist pigs rolling in millions kept in Swiss bank accounts—like Mitt Romney.

America’s start-ups, dreams and innovations don’t source from Washington, D.C. One trillion dollars in short-lived, Daddy G stimulus taught us that. It simply doesn’t work. The economy catches-up and devalues printed money. Plus, it refuses to magically multiply dollars taken from innovators by putting it in the hands of those who choose to sit the sidelines.

South Dakota ACT Scores Above National Average


South Dakota’s average composite ACT score remains unchanged from last year at 21.8, where it has been for the past three years. The national average was also unchanged from a year ago, sitting at 21.1 as it has for four of the past five years. While South Dakota’s scores are consistently higher than the national average by several tenths of a point, South Dakota Secretary of Education Dr. Melody Schopp says there is always room for improvement.

Our National Question Mark

Jim Bowman

As we are quickly approaching America’s political cliff, we must look back to what caused this absurd presidential quandary. Nameless grunts in and out of government have combined to rubber stamp a candidate who to this day remains a question mark. I know the question seems ridiculous, but just who is Obama?

Westboro: The Famous Church of Hate

Carrie K. Hutchens

Westboro's, the famous church of hate, seemed to be slowing down, but it appears they have merely been changing tactics or adding to them. They've moved on from protesting at funerals for servicemen or women, and have now set their sights on GaymerCon, a homosexual gamer's convention. Whether you believe homosexual behavior is right or wrong, is the Westboro "Baptist" Church's venomous tactic the right way to approach this issue?

"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
