Alberto Gonzales resigns, after months of political witch-hunts on the part of deceitful liberals.

After being hounded from public service with baseless smears, Book publishers vying for multi-million dollar book deal.

Current enrollment in American Government 101 fall free course:
29 students and growing. Begins September.
The most-often reversed court, the Ninth Circuit, won't be reversed this time: In Hurd v. Hansen, it rejected an appeal by a seventh-grade parent unhappy about a grade of "C" in Phys-Ed. The parent alleged that schoolteacher Julie Hansen had violated Brandy Hurd's substantive due process and equal protection rights by giving her a racially biased grade.
More school news:
- A public school violated a student's free speech rights by disciplining him for creating a parody of his high school principal on the internet. Layshock v. Hermitage School Dist. (W.D.Pa.)
- A high school student's ten-day suspension for writing about a "dream" she had of shooting one of her teachers did not violate her free speech rights under the First Amendment. Boim v. Fulton County School Dist. (C.A.11 (Ga.)).
- Four college-bound students were shot execution-style at an elementary school wall, three die.
Prayers welcome for the above. Before Engel v. Vitale, schools, like churches, inspired respect.
Our prayers go out to those families who have lost loved ones in the recent tragedy in Minneapolis.

GOP 'Obstruction' Highlighted in 'Harry Potter' Video. In a YouTube video promoted by the liberal organization Campaign for America's Future (CAF), "White House advisor Karl Rove is "Lord Rovemort," scheming to undermine the efforts of Senate Majority Leader Harry Potter - er, Reid - to highlight Republican 'obstruction' in Congress". CNSNews story YouTube Video
When the Democrats practiced obstruction in President Bush's first term in office, the liberals at MoveOn.org defended their position: "labelling filibusters as anti-democratic ignores the fact that on some occasions, a minority of senators may actually speak for the majority of the populace, making filibusters a stop-gap against policy-making that does not represent these interests". The Liberals message is a double standard: In 2003 when Republicans are in power, It's ok for the Democratic minority to obstruct, but in 2007 when the Democrats are in power, how dare the Republican minority object. 
Rush-Dumping Proves Disastrous For Baltimore Talker. Baltimore's radio station, WBAL- AM foolishly purged Rush Limbaugh from its schedule just over a year ago.

HuffPost Blogger: Left Cowardly For Shunning Fox News. P.J.

The case Michael Moore didn't show from Canada: Lindsay McCreith was told by his Canadian universal health care system that he had to wait 4 months for a simple MRI to determine if his brain tumor was benign or malignant. He traveled to Buffalo instead, had the MRI done quickly, found the malignancy, and had an operation to save his life. He'd be dead now if he stayed within his Canadian health care system. Now he's suing to end this injustice in the government-controlled system that Michael Moore praised. See here.
