I finally got a chance to sit down and read Hillary Clinton’s new health care plan. I have a lot to say about it, so let’s get right down to it.
As evidenced by the statement I quoted yesterday, Sen. Clinton is still recovering from the wounds she received the first time she unveiled her [...]

So, today Hillary Clinton unveiled her health care plan. I can’t wait to get into this, but right now I have a date to watch Curious George on PBS with the cutest and smartest 4-year-old in the world, so I’ll leave you with this:
“I know my Republican opponents will try to equate health care [...]

I have no intentions of turning this into a faith blog. I already have one of those. But when faith and politics collide, well, it is important to discuss it. And discuss it we shall.
Okay, it is nothing new that there are people in this world who will co-opt the Gospel for [...]

I hope you weren’t looking for a thoughtful post because … I got nothing. Nothing.
But, this is funny. I get Google Alerts for “homeschooling,” and various other permutations of that phrase, and one of the alerts brought me to IMAO.
Man, I laughed my arse off reading such posts as Who Knows More: A [...]

The Carnival of Principled Government is up at Principled Discovery.
The Burlington Free Press had an article today – front page – about homeschooling. It was a pretty good piece.
Oh and,
“Vermont’s home study regulations are lengthy…”

I happened to notice that I get quite a bit of traffic for the Google search “Is she right for you?”
