Maryland’s teachers’ unions presented their demands earlier in July for using distance learning exclusively during at least the first half of the 2020-21 school year.[i] Within a matter of days afterward, districts, such as Montgomery County’s school system, responded and reversed their tentative reopening plans. They opted instead for an all virtual, online fall semester.
This decision ignored expert advice, including the oft-cited reliance on “science,” touted as guiding COVID-19 pandemic policy responses. <READ MORE>
BIDEN, DEFUNDING COPS AND A FEW OTHER THOUGHTS ON AMERICA’S SUMMER OF DISCONTENT
Today’s chameleon-like Joe Biden would not recognize his 35-year voting record in the Senate, and not just because Joe has a difficult time remembering anything these days.
That Biden was the reflexively left-leaning “Amtrak Joe” — a Northeastern liberal operating squarely within the Teddy Kennedy wing of the party. Today’s knockoff takes his cues from the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie, and Beto — placing him squarely within the neo-socialist wing of his party.
Biden’s sudden left turn recalls the similar journey of Hillary Clinton at this point in her campaign.

CROP CHEMICAL COURT DECISION IS BIG VICTORY FOR AGRICULTURE
Last week, two judges of the 9th Circuit ruled in favor of keeping Corteva’s Enlist Duo, an herbicide designed to kill weeds on corn, soybean and cotton fields, on the market.
Enlist Duo combines two chemicals, 2,4-D and glyphosate. The case came about on a petition for review of an order of the EPA.
That is a victory for agriculture, and in so many cases, agriculture wins or loses based on the judges that make these decisions. That’s why I took a closer look at the three judges on the case. <READ MORE>
NO TO THE 1040 AND YES TO THE FLAT TAX
By Adam Schmidt
This past week millions of Americans paid their taxes, so that porkers like Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer can have his subsidies. Not that Schumer is alone, or that only Democrats are guilty.
While Senator Schumer was busy of thinking of new ways to tax us, and even more outrageous forms of spending, Americans were spending an average of ten hours to fill out the long 1040 Form with all the silly schedules. Those lucky enough to be able to use Form 1040-EZ were only spending 6 hours on average to do their taxes. <READ MORE>
