Stopping for Cake is Not a Crime

Stopping for Cake is Not a Crime

728 x 90It was, Nzinga Terrell-Brown hoped, the beginning of her dream of becoming a teacher. In 2018, when she got a job as a teacher’s aide, her future looked bright. But a couple months in, she was fired—and didn’t know why. She got another teacher’s aide job but was abruptly fired again.What was going on?As Scott Pham details in a thorough and jaw-dropping expose for Buzzfeed, Terrell-Brown was listed on a registry. Not the sex offender registry, which is public, but the Child Abuse and Neglect Registry, which can be accessed by employers and adoption agencies. Obviously, anyone on a...

Ignore the Headlines: Community Is Still Alive in America

Ignore the Headlines: Community Is Still Alive in America

728 x 90Laid up by some broken ribs, I recently spent some of my evenings watching a Hallmark series, “Cedar Cove.” (Yes, you read that correctly: Hallmark. Everybody chuckle, and then we’ll move along.) I don’t own a television or subscribe to any online movie outfits, but a DVD featuring Andie MacDowell, an actress I admire, caught my eye in the public library, so I toted it home.Cedar Cove, a fictional town set on the Puget Sound, is home to Judge Olivia Lockhart (MacDowell), who acts as the town’s conscience. The recently arrived editor of the local newspaper woos her, she worries over...

Down on the Farm With Inflation

Down on the Farm With Inflation

“Pretend farmers.” That’s what we’re called by our neighbors who farm for a living.Having retired to a 10-acre chunk of Southern Minnesota farmland, my husband and I don’t depend on our miniature-scale operation to support us. Instead, our efforts are aimed at keeping family and friends in eggs and lamb chops. And this week, we raised prices on both.Our decision to charge more for what we produce won’t further roil the stock market or accelerate the decimation of your 401(k). Nor are we likely to come to mind when you hear media ads from local nonprofits blaming inflation on “corporate...

Don't Let Big Brother Silence Scientific Debate

Don't Let Big Brother Silence Scientific Debate

728 x 90Crushing scientific dissenters is a sure way to halt medical progress in its tracks.Beware of totalitarian control of scientific and medical thought here in America. Prominent academic publications, medical organizations and even some state legislatures are trying to silence scientific disagreements about COVID-19. That will kill medical progress.On Friday, Anthony Fauci, the face of the federal government’s COVID response, urged graduates at Roger Williams University in Rhode Island to stand up against disinformation and “the normalization of untruths” about COVID-19. Let’s hope...

Are All Men Created Equal?

Are All Men Created Equal?

728 x 90Ideology is political religion, said the conservative sage Russell Kirk.And what is the defining dogma of the political religion, or ideology, of America in 2022? Is it not that, “All men are created equal”?Yet, as with every religion, a basic question needs first to be asked and answered about this defining dogma of liberal ideology. Is it true? Are all men truly created equal? Are all races and ethnic groups equal? Are men and women equal? Are all religions equal? Or do we simply agree to accept that as true—and treat them all equally?All Americans, we agree, have the same...

Finding Hope as Gas Prices Rise and Society Tanks

Finding Hope as Gas Prices Rise and Society Tanks

728 x 90I wince inwardly while sailing past the gas station on my way to work. The price has gone up since I last drove by it … yesterday. In fact, the price seems to go up about 10 cents a day lately. At that rate, by the end of summer it will be … no, I can’t think about that. Doing so will only bring panic.Unfortunately, I doubt I’m the only one lately who fights a tendency to fear the future. I hear others bring up the state of the world in everyday conversations, wondering out loud what on earth we are going to do. Even if we put gas prices aside, everything else—from to to —seems to...

CDC Wants Its COVID Regime Made Permanent

CDC Wants Its COVID Regime Made Permanent

728 x 90There is no remorse at the CDC. Far from it. The model of virus control deployed over the last 27 months is now part of normal operations. It wants it institutionalized.The bureaucracy has now codified this into a new online  that instructs cities and states precisely of what they are supposed to do given a certain level of community spread. The new tool doesn’t say lockdowns as such but the entire model of containment via masks and distancing is baked in, and it can be easily expanded at will.To understand how absurd this is, consider that as of this writing, major parts...
