The Little Country that Could

A key to restoring much of America’s competitive edge is through reform of education, which is not happening in public schools. It is happening however in private and home schools. A new study confirms that homeschoolers are soaring above their government school counterparts in academic achievement. Michael Smith, president of Home School Legal Defense (www.hslda.org), details the study results.

Honduras is struggling to keep its constitution and freedoms intact, despite much pressure from the global leftist media. What’s happening in-country vs. the picture the global media report is like the difference between night and day. That’s why Hondurans now refer to CNN as the “Chavez News Network.” We’ll hear from Donald McElvaney (www.missionbarnabas.org), who just spent three weeks in-country. If Honduras succeeds, it will send shockwaves through the effort to convert Latin America into a socialist paradise.

Frank Hanna then comes on board to discuss his new book, “Money, Madoff, and Morality,” about how capitalism and philanthropy are compatible if the proper use of money is understood.

John’s boralogue addresses America’s coming political and economic day of reckoning, when its fourth turning crisis will force it to decide whether it will embrace its heritage of freedom and capitalism or a new limited-freedom socialist system. The boralogue also emphasizes how the healthcare debate has flipped progressives from the role of being establishment fighters to being the establishment itself with the resulting confusion of what to do.
