But.  What version would that be exactly?  Is it a Cliff’s Notes version, gutted by Common Core proponents? Because […]

La Raza president and CEO Janet Murguia is offended. Murguia, who heads the taxpayer funded radical Latino group,  says the chants of USA! USA! by protesters in Murrietta who made news recently for opposing the dumping of illegal border crossers in their city were “extremist” and “appalling.”  According to Breitbart: Singling out the Murrieta demonstrators during her […]

Coming to a city near you! Barack Obama, Eric Schmidt and Julian Castro share a common philosophy: Privacy is outmoded and Property is collective.  In the rush for progress, Google’s new fiber network is taking down mature trees, some shrubs, ruining some lawns as it runs thousands of miles of new wire through cities. If you […]
