Pain Makes Life Endurable

Share

By John McCartney

The movie, “Tea House of the August Moon” (1956) opens with Marlo Brando, playing Sakini, an Okinawan native, sitting cross legged on the ground, leaning against a palm tree. He gives a short history of Okinawa, a Pacific island, which has been invaded a number of times over its history by military units of foreign nations. He describes how those invasions caused pain for the island’s inhabitants, and finishes saying, “Pain make man think. Thought make man wise. And wisdom make life endurable”. That phrase caught my attention and over the years, during my musings, I have found myself mentally revisiting that scene of the movie and Sakini’s monologue. His statement regarding the relationship of pain, thought, and wisdom was

IRS Documents Reveal Lerner Knew Targeting Criteria of Nonprofit Groups ‘Might Raise Questions’

Share

by Judicial Watch

Judicial Watch today released a new batch of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) documents, including an email from former IRS official Lois Lerner in February 2012 asking that a program be set up to “put together some training points to help them [IRS staffers] understand the potential pitfalls” of revealing too much information to Congress. The documents also contain a Lerner email from 2013 in which she says she is willing to take the blame on some aspects of the scandal. She also indicates that she “understands why the IRS criteria” leading to the targeting of Tea Party and other opponents of the President Obama “might raise questions.”

The documents were released under court order in one

East Penn School District – A Safety Review. East Penn School District goes proactive?

Share

At the April 13th 2015 East Penn School Board (EPSB) meeting, The public was presented a story about how the district was going proactive in its desire to keep the children safe! How? By hiring a School Resource Officer (SRO) or more accurately a cop/police officer. Is Emmaus High School so dangerous that the administration believes it is essential to have a hired gun walking around their hallowed halls?

It appears that when someone working at a school district says, “It’s for the children”, their actions speak louder than their words, and one should look at what the East Penn School District (EPSD) administration does, not what EPSD administration says.

Take the essentially secret teacher union contract that was recently voted

IRS political targeting never again

Share

by Rick Manning–at Net Right Daily and Americans for Limited Government

Recently, Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Ill.) introduced H.R. 1104, the Fair Treatment for All Donations Act, that will protect donations to 501(c)(4), (c)(5), and (c)(6) groups, regardless of their ideological perspective, from any executive action by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to apply the gift tax.

Applying the gift tax to these tax-exempt organizations is something that has simply never been done before, and yet the agency may be actively considering such an approach.

In July 2011, the IRS issued the following statement on numerous inquiries the agency was receiving about applying the gift tax to 501(c)(4)s:

“Recently, questions have arisen regarding the applicability of the gift tax to contributions to

“Hillary Clinton found at the rotten center of the Common Core national standards initiative”

Share

by Bob Kellogg at EAGnews.org

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A veteran educator says parents can thank Hillary Clinton for the Common Core national standards that have been thrust upon schools across the country.

Even though most people probably believe that Common Core was developed during President Barack Obama’s term in office, the foundation of the initiative goes all the way back to the 1980s, reports veteran educator and now-commentator Donna Garner.

Back then, she tells EAGnews Hillary Clinton worked with other left-leaning education reformers such as Marc Tucker of the National Committee on Education and the Economy (NCEE), Ira Magaziner and then-Gov. Mario Cuomo, known

Nine of Pennsylvania’s 10 largest cities have more pensioners than workers

Share

By Eric Boehm | Watchdog.org Note this article was posted on the Pennsylvania Independent

Meet the new poster child for Pennsylvania’s municipal pension problems.

York is a mid-sized city of 43,000 residents in central Pennsylvania near the state’s southern border that’s facing more than $64 million in pension-related debt.

In next year’s budget, York will be expected to pay more than $10 million toward the retirement fund of former city workers. That’s more than a quarter of the city’s entire budget, leaving officials with the prospect of cutting nearly all city services, except law enforcement, to pay the pension bill.

“We have done everything possible to fix our pension woes, but they continue to mount. The system is simply broken,”
