Obama's Cloward-Piven Weapon of Mass Destruction
I am Barack Obama's classmate at Columbia University, Class of '83. We were taught a plan back then to collapse the U.S. economy and destroy this country. It was called "Cloward-Piven" (named after a husband and wife professor team at Columbia). This plan involved using spending, entitlements, debt and crisis after crisis to overwhelm the system, distract the citizens, and cause the collapse of America. At that point, the people would be on their knees begging for big government to save them from drowning. They'd willingly accept a socialist nanny state without argument or debate under duress. People agree to all kinds of terrible things while their lives and survival hangs in the balance. Panic causes bad decision-making. That's the key: panic and duress. With your job and income gone, or facing a massive 9-11-like terrorist attack, or devastating Ebola pandemic, the country is in a panic. "Cloward-Piven" counted on the citizenry making a very bad decision under duress - choosing the very group (government) that destroyed your life as your savior. [more...]
Why Have Marriage Rates Hit a New All-Time Low?
The percentage of U. S. adults who have never been married hit a new, all-time low. Compare the numbers from 1960 with the latest available data in 2012. Back in 1960, about 10% of adults over age 25 had never been married. In 2012, in sharp contrast, about 20% of adults over the age of 25 had never been married. That's an incredible doubling of over 25 never married individuals percentages. Can we expect this cultural trend to continue? The answer is probably - unless there is a significant change in the American culture. What are possible causes of this dramatic shift away from marriage?

State Rep - Common Core Repeal a 'Matter of Time'
By Kyle Olson
If you ask Ohio State Rep. Matt Huffman, the death of Common Core is not a question of if, but when. "People are saying we are being conspirators," Huffman said. "We are not, we are just looking at facts." He added, "We need to realize we are a very diverse country. Things are not going to be the same in Van Wert as they are in Miami, Florida."

Ebola is Everyone's Problem
Worrying and fear are crippling and useless states of thinking and are destructive, especially in situations such as the Ebola outbreak. What is required in this health crisis is action. Everyone must act, not just officials in charge of stopping this disease from spreading. We must each be responsible for our own health and be mindful of our daily actions. That’s one reason why the virus has gotten so severe. No one was educated about the disease, and people weren’t doing anything about it for the longest time. If the Ebola virus had been treated as a business problem, it would already be solved and thousands saved from suffering. Unfortunately, when money is not involved and no one benefits (let alone risks their own life) it is harder to find ways to motivate people to solve problems that they do not consider their own; but this problem is everyone’s problem.
