Severin Johnson: Smartphone App Allows Citizens To Use Each Other For Emergency Services Instead Of Police

Given the danger of calling for police assistance.  We live in a world where we are forced to pay for services that are unreliable, corrupt and brutal. We are taught from a young age that you pick up the phone and dial 911 at the first sign of trouble. But sadly, we increasingly see the responders to our pleas for help showing up and making matters  ... MORE

Michael F. Haverluck: Homeschoolers Face 23 Years In Jail For Missing The Filing Deadlines Imposed By The State

Treating citizens like slaves.       Parents from two homeschooling families in Ohio face up to 23 years in jail for missing filing deadlines imposed by the state. Despite the fact that each of the families were relatively new to homeschooling in Ohio — along with hundreds of other families around the country who report having trouble navigating ... MORE

Andrew Napolitano: Is The Pope A False Prophet?

Holy man doesn't get the free market.     Congressman Thomas Massie, R-Ky., has invited me to the House of Representatives to watch Pope Francis address a joint session of Congress. This generous Methodist congressman has invited your traditionalist Roman Catholic columnist and cable TV guy to this grand event. I am going with joy because  ... MORE

Walter E Williams: Wasn't Always This Way

A conclusion not supported by the facts.   Academics and public intellectuals, who should know better, attempt to explain the highly visible and publicized pathology witnessed in cities such as Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago, Ferguson and others as a legacy of slavery. The argument is made that the problems encountered by many black Americans  ... MORE

Walter E Williams: Fiddling Away The Future

Let's list major problems affecting black Americans.   Topping the list is the breakdown in the black family, where only a third of black children are raised in two-parent households.  Actually, the term "breakdown" is incorrect.  Families do not form in the first place.  Nationally, there is a black illegitimacy rate of 72 percent.    ...

American Families Are Being Economically Destroyed

by Michael Snyder.     The systematic destruction of the American way of life is happening all around us, and yet most people have no idea what is happening.  Once upon a time in America, if you were responsible and hard working you could get a good paying job that could support a middle class lifestyle for an entire family even if you only had a high    ...

John W. Whitehead: Kick Open The Doorway To Liberty

What are we waiting for?  “The greatness of America lies in the right to protest for right.”—Martin Luther King Jr. Everything this nation once stood for is being turned on its head. Free speech, religious expression, privacy, due process, bodily integrity, the sanctity of human life, the sovereignty of the family, individuality, the right to self-      ... MORE

Child Protective Services & The Child Snatching Business

by Rob Hustle.     Across the country, children are being taken from loving homes by government agencies collectively known as Child Protective Services. Although these agencies are supposed to protect children, they are actually the engine that drives a multi-billion dollar industry. This industry, which includes social workers, psychol- ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: The Equality Racket

Tactics of the ethnic grievance industry. Some time ago, burglars in England scrawled a message on the wall of a home they had looted: "RICH BASTARDS." Those two words captured the spirit of the politicized vision of equality — that it was a grievance when someone was better off than themselves. That, of course, is not the only meaning of   ...

The Christmas Hope: A To-Do List for a Better World

by John W. Whitehead.     As a child, my Christmas wish list came right out of the Sears and Roebuck catalogue—toys, board games, bikes, action figures, etc. My parents, like so many in their day, belonged to the working-class poor, so while I never lacked for the necessities of life, many of the items on my wish list never came to be. Even so,    ... MORE

Walter E Williams: Blacks Must Confront Reality

Slavery isn't the real problem.   Though racial discrimination exists, it is nowhere near the barrier it once was. The relevant question is: How much of what we see today can be explained by racial discrimination? This is an important question because if we conclude that racial discrimination is the major cause of black problems when it isn't, then      ... MORE

Michael J. Hurd: Does The State Own Your Child?

Obama and Germany say yes.         The Romeike family, Christian evangelicals, wanted to homeschool their children, but the German authorities wouldn’t permit it.  So the Romeikes came to America (Tennessee, to be precise), where there’s lots of homeschooling, and where a federal judge granted them asylum. The Germans didn’t  ... MORE

Government Spending Is Ruining Families

by Janice Shaw Crouse.       The economic picture in the United States gets worse with each passing day of the Obama administration, and families are especially hard-hit.  While the damage is already devastating, the ramifications will continue wreaking havoc on today's children when they are adults starting their own families. Comedians refer    ... MORE

Walter E Williams: Black Self-Sabotage

Volunteering for the chains of the left.     If we put ourselves into the shoes of racists who seek to sabotage black upward mobility, we couldn't develop a more effective agenda than that followed by civil rights organizations, black politicians, academics, liberals and the news media. Let's look at it. First, weaken the black family, but don't blame it  ... MORE
