Lately, Democratic presidential contender John Kerry has been making laughable attempts to appeal to gun owners, despite his very clear record in favor of gun control.

This would probably be funnier if it weren't for the fact that Bush, too, has a very clear record of undermining the Second Amendment. Most supporters of gun rights seem to be oblivious to this, or at best only dimly aware. Pointing out the failure by Bush to protect the right to bear arms nearly always brings out the question "So you think Kerry would be better?" Obviously only those who agree with Sarah Brady think Kerry would be better on guns, but it would take some considerable effort for Kerry to do worse, as Bush has attacked gun rights in his domestic agenda, by Administration actions in the courts, and in his foreign policy.

A surveillance system that uses 2,000 remote-control cameras and motion-sensing software to spot crimes or terrorist acts as they happen is being planned for the city.

The high-definition, motorized cameras can rotate 360 degrees and include night-vision capability. They will be mounted on buildings and utility poles across the city. The city is also considering allowing private companies to join the network, for a fee. Officials said the system size is nearly limitless.

"We have a religious obligation to not have anything to do with the ungodly public school system," says Hankin, a Christian with ties to the Free Presbyterian denomination.

Hankin's is one of two landmark cases pending in Pennsylvania courts. In each, home-schooling families are using a new religious freedom law to fight what they see as state interference. Twelve states have recently passed similar laws, putting a potentially powerful tool in the hands of those who educate the nation's 1.1 million home-schooled children.

Six other districts may join the suit: Northshore, Federal Way, Spokane, Everett, Bellingham and Burlington-Edison.

Lake Washington officials say they spent $2.1 million on special education last year, while Issaquah says it spent $2.8 million. The money came from local levies, which are supposed to provide enrichment for students.

Governor Schwarzenegger this week signed AB 1925, a pro-family bill requiring schools to notify parents when they plan to bring an outside speaker into the classroom to talk about sex education issues.

AB 1925, authored by Assemblyman Ray Haynes, (R-Murrieta) provides parents with more awareness and control over who discusses issues involving sexuality with their children. Beginning January 1, 2005, school districts must send notices to parents at the beginning of the school year about any outside consultants or guest speakers who will come into the classroom to discuss or teach about HIV/AIDS education or sexually related issues.

A North Clackamas program shifts gears as education officials question whether cyberschools qualify for state money

The race to open Oregon's first online charter school hit a stumbling block recently when the state Department of Education questioned whether such schools are allowed under law. Drakulich estimates the Web Academy would pay for itself because its students not currently on public school rolls would pull in additional state money.

Mirror editor Piers Morgan is sacked as the newspaper concedes photos of soldiers abusing an Iraqi were fake.

In a statement the Mirror said it had fallen victim to a "calculated and malicious hoax" and that it would be "inappropriate" for Morgan to continue. The Queen's Lancashire Regiment (QLR) said the Mirror had endangered British troops by running the pictures. Roger Goodman, of the QLR, said the regiment now felt "vindicated". Mr Goodman added: "It is just a great pity it has taken so long... and that so much damage has been done in the meantime."

The issue of whether someone should vote for the "lesser of two evils" this November has become very contentious in recent months with friends and relatives clashing to the point of creating hard feelings.

Sadly, most Americans don't really recognize that they are being deliberately herded into this direction to keep them in line and "faithful" to either the Democrat or Republican parties. Sun-Tzu is considered one of the greatest military tacticians of all time. I have learned much from studying his strategies as well as Francis Marion aka The Swamp Fox. The herding technique is one of the most effective methods of manipulating those to be conquered into the right direction. I use a bull and cape metaphor on my web site to illustrate this, but basically, this is how it works...

A Christian family has sued a Pennsylvania school district, claiming the state's home education law violates their religious convictions.

Pennsylvania's home-schooling regulations are rigorous, requiring meticulous record-keeping and submission of notarized paperwork on the home schoolers' intended curriculum, a criminal background stipulation, each child's medical information, ongoing progress logs, and the end-of-year progress reports, which must be signed by a third party.
