|12/22/2012 - I'm not a member of the NRA, but when an organization states such a powerful, obvious truth that can help save lives, I am obliged to recognize the wisdom of it even if I'm not personally a member of that group. Yesterday, the NRA called for defending our nation's schoolchildren with armed adults in...|
|12/16/2012 - Thirty-two thousand Americans are killed each year in automobile accidents, and the President sheds no tears for them. The deaths aren't on the news, and there is no call to "ban cars" to prevent the deaths. Over 100,000 Americans are killed each year by government-approved pharmaceuticals, yet we never...|
|8/6/2012 - Proper nutrition is vital for maintaining good health and warding off illness.

|7/14/2011 - Health authorities do not believe that your child is entitled to be educated unless he or she has first been indoctrinated and intoxicated by the demigods of vaccination.

|7/12/2011 - In what is perhaps the largest school cheating scandal in US history, the Atlanta Public Schools (APS) system is in very hot water after a 413-page investigative report released by Georgia Gov.

|11/14/2008 - We know that fatty processed foods aren't good for our schoolchildren, but getting more locally grown foods on the cafeteria menu can be difficult. The economic crisis may change that.

|3/4/2008 - The re-authorization of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) has become a priority for the final year of the Bush administration.

|1/5/2004 2:25:18 PM - Kudos to doctors for pushing to ban soft drinks and fruit drinks in
schools. It's just one way to combat rising childhood obesity, and it

child). This is...|
