President Trump’s tax reform plan, released this week, is a winner! Our state’s partisan political class will no doubt trot out their standard, mindless, and divisive class warfare mantras, but having attended two national seminars to learn details of the President’s tax reform plan, I can assure the people of Rhode Island that this sweeping reform plan is indeed designed to mostly benefit the middle-class. It is disappointing that our state’s political leaders would choose to deny Rhode Islanders the chance to keep and make more money just because they are hung-up on an anti-jobs, tax-the-rich platform.
A politically incorrect Halloween, being honest about our differences and challenges, and a thought on tax policy.
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WADK 1540 AM show, last week, the topics were Tanzi’s story, Morgan’s announcement, Regunberg’s intention, and Fung’s challenge.
The transgender issue extends far beyond bathroom or locker-room rights. As expressed in a June 2016 “guidance” document from the RI Department of Education (RIDE) on transgender rights, RIDE itself will be seeking to bully local school districts into conformity, openly flaunting its disrespect of other students and of parental rights.
A more-easy-going pedagogy at one Tiverton elementary school makes things easier for employees and takes some burden off parents, but is it good for the students?
The transgender mandate in schools is about determining truth and forcing you to believe it… or at least to lie.
In imposing transgender “guidance” on school districts, Rhode Island government proves contempt for the First Amendment.
Funny how identity politics has brought progressives back around to the role of racists; pity they haven’t learned the lessons of American classics.
Evidence that Democrat researchers modified the conclusions of their “safari” into flyover country to fit a prior conclusion is a reminder that interview-based studies are vulnerable to that temptation.
Johanna Harris is going to get information from Providence’s mayor, but the first-violation-free precedent on open records is unhealthy.
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WADK 1540 AM show, last week, the topics were the Warwick sick outs, my ethics complaint, Josh Miller’s view of the Democrats, Raimondo’s remorse for hurting journalists’ feelings.
In the Ocean State, the political elites work hard to keep the average family out of the process. It appears that the Board of Elections and the Secretary of State’s office have deliberately left the door open for individuals to register to vote and cast a vote, without ever providing personally identifying information as required by state and federal law. As I have said before, the scale of these findings potentially shake the very foundation of our state’s democracy … and must be formally and independently investigated.
Everybody’s being taken in by the #MeToo trick and some thoughts on freedom of speech.
A Facebook video by “Woke Folks” explains privilege probably better than its authors intended or understand.
When people are rewarded for finding evidence of “isms” in their past, we move away from understanding and toward constant cultural warfare.
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WADK 1540 AM show, last week, the topics were Gina Raimondo’s battle of words with the news media, Warwick teachers’ sick out, and state worker buy-outs.
They thing to remember regarding abuse of power is that the Devil switches sides, and conservatives build their political prescriptions around that insight.
In Rhode Island, it appears that the BOE and the Secretary of State’s office, over the years, have purposely left the door open for individuals to register to vote, and cast a vote, without ever providing personally identifying information as required by state and federal law. As I previously commented, the magnitude of these findings potentially shake the very foundation of our state’s democracy … and must be officially investigated.
Falsity and truth in teacher’s unions, ObamaCare, and the Boy Scouts.
Private-sector development across the border in Massachusetts contrasts poorly with the government-funded projects that Rhode Island favors.
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WADK 1540 AM show, last week, the topics were Ken Block’s election findings, the 1,000 days of Raimondo’s reign, and Kobi Dennis makes a play in Providence.
Mark Janus is a child support specialist with the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services. He advocates for children’s rights when their parents are no longer together. When he was hired, he didn’t know that he was going to be forced to pay union dues until he saw the fees deducted from his first paycheck.
A governor’s 1,000-day extravaganza, spinning personal income, honest non-transparency, and Dr. Seuss’s prophecies come true.
How might the urge to keep guns out of the hands of imbalanced people relate to debate about allowing physician-assisted suicide?
For my weekly call-in on John DePetro’s WADK 1540 AM show, last week, the topics were the lawyers of the General Assembly, the 1,000 days of Raimondo’s reign, and the policies go on.
The incentives for long-term relationships are decreasing, in our culture, and we’re losing the age-old wisdom that is the inheritance of our ultra-successful civilization.
Following the release this week of city-by-city and district-by-district voter registration and 2016 election voting research by Ken Block, via his Simpatico Software Systems data analysis company, we call on the Governor and/or the Attorney General to initiate an independent investigation. This shocking data means our current registration practices may need to be amended, with individuals appropriately held accountable, if voters are to maintain confidence in our State’s elections integrity.
Accepting luxuries for those who can afford them and freedoms for those who disagree.
Immigration, automation, and outsourcing are hitting the American worker, but Sam Bocetta suggests that some reforms and a sense of patriotism can improve conditions.
Is the governor’s planned stop at a commercial fishing dock inspired (if condescending) or ironic (and tone deaf)?
