Meet Michigan's foulest criminals. They're chickens, but not your ordinary poultry. These nine hens are threatening to topple the government of this northern Michigan hamlet.

A young couple's attempt to raise chickens led to their arrest, the resignation of the mayor and city manager, the possible recall of two City Council members, a Michigan State Police investigation and endless chicken jokes. When Mayor Kane Kelly tried to help the couple, he was pressured to resign during a meeting that may have violated the state's open meetings law.

My fellow Americans, Let me tell you a tale. A friend of mine was recently laid off. He's a hardworking kind of guy, so he decided to forgo the customary process of sitting around his house complaining on Facebook that no employers are knocking on his...

Can anyone seriously argue that spending 48 months on a college campus better prepares you for a retail environment than spending 7 years in a retail environment? If, through some very bizarre set of circumstances, your life depended on finding someone who could function effectively at any particular job, would you place your fate in the hands of a guy who frequently read about the job over someone who's been too busy successfully doing it?

A middle school employee gave teachers training documents advising them not to use "gendered expressions" by calling students "boys and girls" or "ladies and gentlemen," but to instead use more generic expressions such as campers, readers, athletes...

A handout called "12 easy steps on the way to gender inclusiveness" advised teachers to avoid separating students by gender, but instead by birth dates or preferences. For example, they could ask students whether they prefer skateboards or bikes, milk or juice, dogs or cats, summer or winter.

A Letter to Commissioner King and the New York State Education Department:

I have played your game for the past two years. As an educator, I have created my teaching portfolio with enough evidence so I can prove that I am doing my job over the course of the school year. I am testing my students on material that they haven't yet learned in September, and then re-testing them midway through the year, and then again at the end of the year to track and show their growth.

Administrators at a Dallas County, Missouri, school read a teenage girl's diary, discovered a reference to marijuana within its pages, and suspended the girl for the rest of 2014.

Tom Grayhorse said his daughter, Krystal, had never been in trouble before she was called into the office and suspended May 9. Originally, she was ousted for 10 days, but it was quickly extended through the end of the 2014 calendar year. Unable to finish her junior year, her grades plummeted and she lost out on credits needed for graduation. Grayhorse hoped the district would reconsider, allowing her to return last month so she had a chance of graduating with her class in May.

McCain proudly proclaimed that he had never heard of Agenda 21. That was an interesting comment coming from a senator who co-sponsored the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) which erased all American tariffs.

During this time, the global elite's plan to establish a 11 megacity regions, each containing approximately six million people each was being established under stealth. McCain had a vested interest in lying to his fellow Arizona citizens about the role that his creation, CAFTA, would play in the establishment of the New World Order running amok and swallowing up what would be left of America.

Your gut feeling may be that packing a homemade school lunch for your child would be healthier than a chocolate milk, white bread, sugar-laden, processed, vending machine-sourced unhealthy school lunch.

But one Chicago school disagrees, and has banned homemade school lunches, according to a Chicago Tribune report. But some healthy-school-lunch advocates believe that as long as the school is truly serving healthy, tasty food (not chemical-containing processed food with a mile-long list of ingredients), a school ban on lunches from home could actually benefit kids. "When you do this, there's no peer pressure about what to eat and what not to eat," explains author and healthy-school-lunch advocate Chef Ann Cooper, known as the Renegade Lunch Lady. "There's no trying to get one kid to eat broccoli when another kid is eating Lunchables."

The U.S. Civil Rights Commissioner claims campus speech codes need to be tightened as college students are still "developing" and cannot yet handle certain information.

Speaking during a U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (USCCR) briefing on sexual harassment law in education, Democrat Michael Yaki likened restricting free speech on college campuses to the U.S. Supreme Court's 2005 decision to ban the death penalty for minors. "Certain factors in how the juvenile or adolescent or young adult brain processes information is vastly different from the way that we adults do," Yaki said according to a transcript from Eugene Volokh, a law professor and publisher of the blog, The Volokh Conspiracy, who also testified at the briefing. "So when we sit back and talk about what is right or wrong in terms of First Amendment jurisprudence from a reasonable person's standpoint, we are really not looking into the same referential viewpoint of these people, of an adolescent or young adult, including those in universities."

Sheer insanity. This isn't some raving drunk off the street. This is the president of one of the largest teachers unions in the United States - a nation which is slowly turning against the disastrous "Common Core" system of Federally-imposed standards.

Michael Mulgrew, president of New York's United Federation of Teachers, unloaded a hateful rant against critics of the Common Core Standards Initiative. "If someone takes something from me, I'm going to grab it right back out of their cold, twisted, sick hands and say it is mine!" Mulgrew bellowed clownishly. "You do not take what is mine!" The union boss also challenged opponents of Common Core and union control over education to a fist fight.
