School district waves white flag, allows patriotic flags on student’s truck

Share

by Tom Balek at Watchdog

“There’s that truck again,” I remarked to my wife. I always had to smile when I saw the black GMC ride by with the big flags flapping in the wind.

Peyton Robinson, a senior at York Comprehensive High School in York, S.C., has been driving his truck around our end of York County with two large flags attached to the bed – an American flag and one that honors military servicemen and women who have been taken as POWs (prisoners of war) or are MIA (missing in action).

On Wednesday, May 13, he was pulled from class and sent to meet an administrator in the parking lot, where he discovered his flags had been removed and placed in the bed

The IRS Seized $107,000 From This North Carolina Man’s Bank Account. Now, He’s Fighting to Get It Back.

by Melissa Quinn at the Daily Signal

For most of his life, Lyndon McLellan has been in the business of country stores—the types of stores where the employees know customers’ names by heart and workers remain loyal for years and years.

His parents owned a general store and grill, and McLellan began helping out there at the ripe old age of 9. Then, 14 years ago, McLellan decided to try his hand at the family business and purchased his own store in the heart of the Bible Belt, naming it L&M Convenience Mart.

Business has been good for McLellan, and though L&M, located in Fairmont, N.C., began as just a convenience store and gas station, he’s since expanded it to include a restaurant that serves

Watchdog Podcast: Breaking the Bank–Public workers are new American royalty

Share

by Eric Boehm at Watchdog

Breaking the Bank is Watchdog.org’s weekly look at the national public pension crisis, how it’s affecting state and city budgets and what can be done — if anything — to fix it.

In this week’s episode, hosts Eric Boehm and Steve Greenhut take a step back from the usual number-crunching and budget-busting to ask a sociological question: are America’s highly-paid public sector workers a new form of royalty?

Okay, they’re not going to be wearing crowns anytime soon, but there’s a noticeable and growing class divide between government employees and everyone else. It’s a situation that has been worsened by the public pension system, which taxpayers must pay into but don’t get much in return.

Make sure you don’t

The Bait-and-Switch Behind Economic Populism

Share

The following article written by Nicolás Cachanosky is an excellent summary of the paper “Macroeconomic Populism” written by Rudiger Dornbusch and Sebastián Edwards. Not only do the four stages of populism identified by Dornbusch and Edwards apply at a national level, they also seem to apply on a local level.

These four stages can been seen in our local governments including Emmaus, Lower Macungie Twp., East Penn School District, and even Lehigh County. When fiscally responsible majorities have been in control, they have instituted policies that allowed these local levels of government to become financially sound with either no debt or extremely low amounts of debt while supplying the excellent services the public demands. By focusing on providing required services at cost competitive rates, funding

Pension reform promises $18 billion savings, but questions linger

Share

by Eric Boehm–at Watchdog

After what was touted as a historic vote in the state Senate, Pennsylvania is still a long way from getting any relief from its public pension problems.

A major pension overhaul bill cleared the state Senate along party lines last week, but it still needs to make it through the state House and get a signature from a skeptical Gov. Tom Wolf before becoming law.

Even then, much the bill’s $18 billion in promised savings could be wiped out by a legal challenge in the state courts.

“If this bills gets passed, as written, and signed by the governor, someone will definitely sue over it,” predicts James McAneny, executive director of the Public Employee Retirement Commission.

Time to get Old Hickory off the $20 bill

Share

by Robert Romano–at Net Right Daily and Americans for Limited Government

Andrew Jackson would be the first to say to take him off the $20 bill.

Right on it, the bill says, “Federal Reserve Note,” an institution he would have despised.

As President, when the renewal of the Second Bank of the United States’ charter passed Congress, Jackson vetoed it. Jackson spent his political career making certain there would not be a central bank in this country. He even paid off the national debt.

The Jacksonians went on to become the modern Democrat Party. Those in favor of the national bank became the Whigs.

Why was Jackson so adamantly opposed to a central bank? Besides being unconstitutional in his

Conservatives demand GOP keep campaign promises

Share

by Garth Kant —at WND A coalition called the Citizens Mandate is calling out the Republican Party for not keeping its word in its first 132 days in power after taking control of both branches of Congress in January.

The group has rallied more than 100 conservative leaders to sign a letter urging Congress to stop the fundamental transformation of America.

“Rather than reversing the destructive and fundamental transformation of the United States undertaken by the Obama Administration, Republican Members of Congress have instead allowed these bad policies to move forward unabated,” said Citizens Mandate in a statement Monday.

The group also accused the Republican majority of “demonstrating more of a commitment to bipartisan friendship and status quo government rather than actual principled leadership needed

State Legislators for Legal Immigration Files Amicus Brief

Against Obama Administration’s Ongoing Push for Backdoor Amnesty

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania State Representative and State Legislators for Legal Immigration (SLLI) Founder Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler) today announced the filing of an amicus brief to the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in support of Texas and 20 other states that have sued the federal government to prevent the Obama administration’s implementation of the Deferred Action for Parents of American and Lawful Residents (DAPA) program —more commonly known as “Executive Amnesty.”

 

On Feb. 16, the Fifth Circuit Court placed a preliminary injunction on the implementation of the DAPA program to which the Obama administration subsequently appealed. As a result, the
