Call me hard hearted but those Dr. Jill chose to praise also chose to put themselves into the situations she considered so brave. You don't become pregnant or a drug addict without voluntarily taking several steps in between (usually). Yes, they succeeded in college after these mistakes and that's good. How about praising those who often get ignored; student who just came from humble backgrounds, worked hard to get through college, paid their own way, and now graduated without ever being a burden on the government because they worked hard and did everything right. They are always overlooked and never praised for doing the right thing .

You have fatherless children, no home, a pile of student loan debt and a drug habit but congratulations! You now have a degree in Tibetan Blanket Weaving to help provide you with a new start in life. Look at me, all I had to do was steal somebody's husband and I am a First Lady!

Defining deviancy down. She seems to admire out-of-wedlock pregnancy, promiscuity, and addiction to illegal drugs. Her family members are such great examples.

Aren't they Catholic? Yes, we know that people get sidelined with drug habits, homelessness, COVID losses, pregnant etc. Yet, these are the same people trying to take God out of society and is easier to get caught up in these things without God's guidance in their life. I really understand the point #1 is making. I know several people. By the way, did God get any credit?

As a University professor, I have long been an advocate for the establishment of community Colleges, in their most basic form. Iowa has a Community College system where the college is attached to, and an extension of High School. And that is an excellent model, especially for technical training. The problem with some Community Colleges is the temptation to suffer mission creep - adding major fields of study and esoteric courses that do not belong at the freshman or sophomore level. That, in turn, adds financial pressures to local government typically the major source of CC finds. (In Erie County, Pennsylvania, we have two competing Community Colleges, both government run, toosilly to describe or believe.) Community Colleges went off the rails during the Dollar Bill Clinton presidency. Remember him? Ending welfare as we know it? The idea was to send welfare mommas to Community College for job training, which would allow them to get off welfare with the proper support programs = child care, wheels to work, and the like. But the system was soon overcome with legal scams. A baby momma would sign up for classes, open admission, go to one class, drop her classes, and cash out her Pell Grant, State Grant, and student loan distribution. (If you watch Judge Judy you will see this again and again. And the money goes to baby daddy, of whom there are many, for fancy rims, I phones, cars, clothes.) (And if a computer was issued by the CC, it gets sold., and baby momma keeps the cash) And on a bad day in Judge Judy's courtroom, you might hear the baby daddy say to the baby mom,ma, "I ain't your man! I played you! I play lots of women!" In some jurisdictions, there is no limit on the number of times the money making scam is used, but we know that some Community Colleges have attrition rates in the 80-90 per cent range. And if that is not failure, I don't have a definition for it.

Donald Trump went on a lengthy rant attacking the House select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol on Thursday, hours before the Democrat-led panel holds the first in a series of six hearings looking into the ex-president's role that day. And rather than downplaying the riot like he has in the past, Trump held it up as the 'greatest movement' in history and lashed out at the 'Unselect Committee' for not instead investigating the election fraud theories that motivated his supporters to storm the US Capitol last year.

Bracing for the January 6 House committee's public hearing on Thursday, former President Donald Trump attacked the panel's probe in a series of statements on his Truth Social account, arguing the real investigation should have been on the "rigged and stolen" election and not on the riot at the Capitol."The Unselect Committee didn't spend one minute studying the reason that people went to Washington, D.C., in massive numbers, far greater than the Fake News Media is willing to report, or that the Unselects are willing to even mention, because January 6th was simply not a protest," Trump wrote on Thursday morning.

Great Reset. Green New Deal. Build Back Better. New World Order. Bilderberg. Davos. Council on Foreign Relations. World Health Organization. The list of secretive global societies and their mission directives for humanity are daunting. Many people who would prefer to be left alone to live their lives free from government interference have an understandable sense of impending doom. The COVID Crisis showed Westerners how quickly (and easily) their governments would impose unilateral mandates against their will, destroying any illusion that self-congratulating "democracies" have any more respect for individual rights or bodily autonomy than the authoritarian regimes the West routinely condemns.

A radical left-wing pro-abortion group known as Ruth Sent Us, sent a very disturbing, unsettling “special message” on Wednesday to the family of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.The message in question was delivered the very same day an armed man, Nicholas John Roske, was arrested near his home. Roske had told authorities he had planned to kill Kavanaugh and then himself because he was mad about the leaked draft opinion that suggests the court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade.This same abortion group also publicized the addresses of the conservative-leaning folks on the Supreme Court as well. Obviously, these folks do not care at all if their actions lead to

Just 24% of Hispanic voters and 49% of black voters said they approve of Biden’s work.Although elected with the most votes in US history, Biden’s support cratered about seven months into office during the chaotic US pullout from Afghanistan

It wasn’t that long ago when the left’s narrative on ‘gay rights’ was simple, straightforward, and easy to support: Let’s all be tolerant of one another, live and let live, and don’t discriminate. Tolerance is, after all, one of the fundamental tenets of the philosophy which drove America’s founding. But as the saying goes, “give someone an inch and they’ll take a mile,” which is the situation in which we find ourselves today. The message of ‘tolerance’ eventually morphed into ‘acceptance.’ At some point late in the Obama Administration, our culture decided that it was inadequate to merely tolerate the shenanigans of the LGBTQ community, we needed to welcome them.

Speculation is rife concerning the possible presidential candidates representing the two major parties as the nation approaches the 2024 elections. Everyone has an opinion, and the pundits are competing in the expertise sweepstakes. What can we say with some degree of plausibility? The Democrat roster is, by all accounts, dramatically uninspiring. Biden, who speaks in tongues, is plainly beyond redeeming; the question is whether he will manage to survive the year, let alone stumble, lollop, and whiffle to the end of his first term. Kamala Harris belongs in vaudeville or farce, given her talent for provoking laughter. Both will have to be retired in favor of an electable candidate. But who?

WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly a year since its inception, the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol will go public with its findings starting this week as lawmakers hope to show the American public how democracy came to the brink of disaster. The series of hearings that will take place over the next several weeks begin with a prime-time session Thursday night in which the nine-member panel plans to give an overview of its 11-month investigation. More than 1,000 people have been interviewed by the panel, and only snippets of that testimony have been revealed to the public, mostly through court filings.

I'd made long road trips before, surviving popped tires, blown headlights and shredded wheel-well liners in my 2008 Volkswagen Jetta. I figured driving the brand-new Kia EV6 I'd rented would be a piece of cake. If, that is, the public-charging infrastructure cooperated. We wouldn't be the first to test it.
