Education – Here is a look at some of the history questions on the Florida state exam: Analyze the major factors that drove United States imperialism? Examine the controversy surrounding the proliferation of nuclear technology in the United States? Assess key figures and organizations in shaping the Black Power Movement? Analyze significant Supreme Court decisions relating to reproductive rights? Describe efforts by the United States and other world powers to avoid future wars? Examine the failure of the United States to support the League of Nations? These are obviously liberal “leading” questions.
NY-26 – The Left is proclaiming a victory for socialism. First, a 3rd party candidate took 10% of the vote (mostly conservative), secondly the Democratic campaign was nothing more than scare tactics falsely proclaiming the GOP is going to kill Medicare for those who are already on the program, and thirdly the Democrats are too afraid to propose a plan of their own for Medicare (and without a plan, those on Medicare may lose it in the next decade).
Potatoes – The Department of Agriculture is moving to ban white potatoes from school menus.
Milk – The FDA raided an Amish farm that tried to sell unpasteurized milk across state lines.
Health Care – Americans can expect to see an average increase in their insurance premiums of 8.5% next year.

AARP – The group who represents the nation’s elderly population, and was a big proponent for ObamaCare, recently got a waiver to circumvent the new legislation.
Jesse Lee – He will be the new media director in the White House that will be responsible for responding to and squashing any negative stories about the President. How’s that for transparency and a good use of our tax dollars?
Israel – Got to give props to Netanyahu for repudiating Obama’s 1967 border proposal in a speech in front of Congress.
John Edwards – The former Democratic Presidential candidate will face prosecution for using campaign contributions to cover up an extramarital affair.
Stimulus – The accountability office found companies that owe millions in back taxes received billions in federal stimulus monies.
Jared Loughner – The AP reported that the man who shot Gabrielle Giffords is not competent to stand trial. It is amazing how our system protects criminals.
Budget – The Senate defeated both the Ryan and Obama budget proposals for 2011. Obama’s was defeated 97-0 after Democrats praised it when it was first released.
