Prayers on a bus. No, it’s not the sequel to Snakes on a Plane. It’s literally something that happened on a school bus in Minnesota. A pastor named George Nathaniel was fired from the school district where he was a bus driver for prayers on his bus. Star Tribune:
A bus driver for the Burnsville school district was fired last week for leading kids in Christian prayers on his bus, even after he was warned to stop — a move he considers a violation of his freedom of speech.
George Nathaniel, 49, of Richfield, who is also a pastor for a pair of Minneapolis churches, was in his second year as a school bus driver for a company under contract to the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage district. Continue reading
I was under the weather and out of action yesterday but perhaps might have rallied to respond to this article at the News and Record had I seen it: Home school inspections would intrude on privacy?
A day ago, the Lt. Governor’s office sent out press releases alerting the public that NDPE (Division of Non-Public Education) might be thinking about bringing back random spot inspections and searches of home schools. NDPE and the Lt. Governor’s office then issued a joint statement saying such inspections would not happen.

A few thoughts
First he was 30 minutes late to a speech the world was waiting to hear about. Talk about ego. I called that right up front and didn’t let go of it. The President does this constantly — it’s seriously unprofessional. If you’re going to be showing up regularly 30 minutes late, then try scheduling it 30 minutes later or at least have your staff give an ETA. No none likes showing up for an appointment on time only to sit in the waiting room for 30 minutes. So rude. FORE! Continue reading
Despite Democrat Woodrow Wilson’s best efforts, today is the anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment that gave women the right to vote. You’d never know the battles these women fought given the state of “feminism” today.
Here are a few interesting facts about Republicans, Democrats and Women: Continue reading
