What a choice!

Well, isn't that interesting? Joe Biden had the option of being Secretary of State or Vice-President. Which would you have chosen?

Challenging Authority

J.R. Dunn provided an interesting article about how the Left has been much more affective in its use of the internet than conservatives in creating a "Net Feedback" system.

I respectively disagree with the idea that we can face this menace with brute strength, countering their misinformation with our own, or supplying false information in hopes that it will later be discovered that the MSM has been passing along the misinformation on purpose. A case may even be made that the war on the net has been lost and the Left has won.

However, this battle can be restructured and attacks can be made against the left on a much more controllable front: Education. We need a focused effort in revamping our educational system, teaching our children the importance of reason and thought. It is mandatory that we teach our children how to challenge their teachers and administrators to explain what they are teaching and why they are teaching it. These challenges must obviously be respectful.

As a law student, I have learned the benefits of challenging my teachers and forcing them to reconsider their blind regurgitation of leftist propaganda. I only wish I had learned how to challenge and what to challenge earlier in my career as a student.

Life v. Blog

It is almost a year since I posted last, indicating my desire to blog about the Supreme Court. Law School took control and I simply forgot I had created this blog. Law School will continue for an additional 2 1/2 years, but maybe then I will have the time I need to dedicate myself to this subject matter.

On the other hand, I may just change my mind about the focus of this blog. I realize that at this time I have no readers, and in reality I am only writing to myself, but maybe, just maybe I will be able to create something that others will find interesting. And one day one of them will look back on this post in my archive and laugh.
