Biden's latest fall
The Supreme Court issued an 8-1 ruling limiting the actions of unions when going on strike. The case involved the Washington construction company Glacier Northwest suing the local Teamsters Union for damages. When the union called a strike, their truck drivers walked off the job when hundreds of trucks were filled with wet concrete awaiting delivery. It not only cost the company the value of the concrete, but if they hadn’t been able to clean it out fast, it would’ve hardened, severely damaging the trucks. The majority ruled that while workers have the right to strike, they should take reasonable precautions to protect their employers’ property and equipment, and they can be liable for costs if they walk off the job in a way that they know will cause serious damage. The lone dissenter was uber-liberal Biden appointee, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, who said the ruling would hinder the development of labor law and "erode the right to strike." She apparently wants the right to strike set in concrete, just like this company’s trucks would’ve been. I wonder if she’d defend the right of airline pilots to strike if the pilot flying her plane strapped on a parachute and bailed out in mid-air.
Blacks are waking up to the fact that they are the latest core Democratic Party bloc to be thrown under the bus, just as women are discovering that President Biden is much more concerned about “trans rights” than women’s rights. As Catherine Salgado at PJ Media reports, Chicago residents, many of them black, are furious that their recently-elected leftist Mayor Brandon Johnson plans to spend another $51 million on taking care of illegal immigrants, on top of the $102 million already spent on them since January. This while their own neighborhoods are suffering from homelessness, lousy schools, rampant crime and fleeing businesses. But then, the Democrats see those new arrivals as future Democrat voters, and black Chicago residents as in-the-bag habitual Democrat voters.

The spiritual side of our lives really does matter
When I was growing up, my bedtime ritual always included a fairy tale that started with “Once upon a time...” and ended with the comforting words we all remember: “And they lived happily ever after.” As a child of the optimistic 1950s, I dreamed that life might be like that: whatever obstacles, dangers or perils might come my way, in the end, I would live happily ever after.
Why Art and Music Are Essential in Schools
Aside from letting leftist indoctrination take over our public school system, the biggest mistake we conservatives made in education over the years was in thinking that art and music classes were expendable luxuries and should be slashed to concentrate on “the three ‘R’s.” Not only are art and music classes important in themselves, but they are also beneficial to helping students excel in other subjects, including math and reading.
A blank book of pages
The first school in which we enroll, and the most important in shaping our future, is our home. A casual view of modern TV shows might lead us to believe that parents don’t matter. I contend that nothing matters more. When Benjamin West was a boy, his mother left him in charge of his younger sister, Sally. Benjamin found bottles of colored ink and painted Sally’s portrait.
How to prevent young people from falling prey to socialism
I got a comment from a reader arguing that one reason young people fall prey to socialism (aside from being brainwashed by their teachers) is that they feel the capitalist system is failing them. They were told they had to get college degrees if they wanted good jobs, and encouraged to take out huge student loans. Now, they’re saddled with crippling debt, and those degrees aren’t opening the doors to jobs that pay enough to ever get out of the hole.
