Children and grandchildren celebrated toe 70th birthday of mrs seep on saturday evening the party of 27 Wert to fwd Mcxie Springs Park in a special car Tate in the afternoon and. Art 5 o clock an excellent dinner was served in toe Pavilion by caterer Fred w Motzel of Tutu Svette the incorrectly political Donald Trump Quot the message of television As metaphor is not Only that All the world is a stage but that the stage is located in Las vegas a Neil postman. A amusing ourselves to death Public discourse in the age of show business so i see where candidate Trump and former gov. Palm Are complaining about a political correctness Quot the supposedly Liberal sin of being too polite to Tell the unvarnished truth. Me too. In be always laughed at the follies of self styled a Radical Quot left Wing professors. My All time favorite was the time a mass Amherst English professor commiserated that an a aristocratic southerner Quot like me must find the campuses multicultural environment challenging. I was maybe 28, an Irish Guy from Elizabeth n.j., a City that makes Amherst look like a country club Mitt Romney might join. Of so i did have a degree from the University of Virginia and a cute Arkansas wife some of my colleagues patronized to her face. Extreme ethnic sensitivity and comical misjudgments a the Irish Arentt exactly rare in Massachusetts and saying Vail hardly indicates Kkt sympathies a were regular features of Campus life. We plotted an Early escape. So when i Tell Diane that students at Columbia University have petitioned for a trigger warnings Quot on Ovid so metamorphoses Quot because the god Jupiter a a sort of first Century Donald Trump a goes around disguised As a Bull or a Swan raping virgins she laughs. Quot they re All Amherst now. Arentt they Quot she says. Needless to say theres also plenty of ethnic stupidity on the right. Esp commentator Curt Schilling recently got suspended for a foolish tweet equating muslims with nazis. This aroused former gov. Palin who decried what she called a a journalistic embarrassment a and urged esp to get Back to a your beloved a Titch was exactly what the network was trying to do. Why Schilling a terrific Pitcher and a Fine baseball analyst chose to inject Isis and the third Reich into the Little league world series for heavens Sake remains unclear. But lets go to the numbers. Schillings ostensible Point was that a Only 7 percent of germans were nazis. While its said Only 5 to to percent of muslims Are evidently he a unaware that Adolf Hitler was elected which makes the 7 percent figure awfully suspect. No doubt with the votes of a lot of people named Schilling. Ifs a relatively common German name. Chances Are that quite a few Kurt schillings served in hitlers armies. You Start Messing around with collective guilt and cheap historical analogies see. And there a no telling where things might end up. Even so i Hope esp brings the big dope Back. They Only him to be smart about baseball. Sarah Palin also griped during her recent to interview with candidate Trump that politically Correct a flame Stream reporters keep asking him a gotcha Quot questions a for instance they sic asking what a your favorite Bible verse and i listened to that going a what a do they ask Hillary that what does it have to do with running for the office of the presidency a Well maybe nothing. Except of course. Trump was going around giving thumbs up gestures and saying stuff like a the Bible number one. Right Quot he really does appear to think the average gop voter has a single digit in. But for the record the late tim Russert famously asked All the democratic candidates to cite their favorite Bible verses during a nationally televised 2007 debate. Hillary said the Golden Rule then sen. Obama cited the Sermon on the mount. Nobody mentioned a the Art of the you definitely get the idea though that on the Day the . Trump sails into an iceberg the Donald will be the first one in the lifeboats. Comforting the poor and afflicted does no to appear to be High on his to do list. I mean Here a a Guy who made his Fortune building casinos and luxury hotels where Ordinary stiffs can Gamble their Money away while Guys like him party with hookers in the Penthouse suite Only top hookers though a no slumming for Trump. At least he resisted informing Palin that she a no longer a to. He did say that to German a a supermodels Heidi Klum recently who mocked him with a to shirt Reading 9.9. I done to know How she resisted challenging him to a bathing suit contest. A 69-year-old Guy with a Good tailor and a physique like a Bowling pin definitely needs to keep his clothes on. In a sure a Silicon Barbie a the Lovely third mrs. Trump who a taken her own clothing off for half the Magazine photographers in new York could Tell you All about that. But she a pretty much got a mute Button. Have i Given offence of i do Hope so. My Points quite simple Trumps whole new York Loudmouth act the presidential candidate As braggart professional wrestler Only lasts As Long As everybody else acts Well politically Correct. Change the rules and there a no telling what could happen. Arkansas times columnist Gene Lyons is a National Magazine award Winner and coauthor of a the Hunting of the you can email Lyons at eugenelyons2@yahoo.com. 5whuer. The Acle seas and the future of school Choice another school year is under Way. And More parents than Ever Are using school Choice to ensure the Best education for their children. Or should i say trying to use them some groups after All Are trying to thwart them. Who you ask just ask parents in Nevada the Silver state is one of five nationwide along with Arizona. Mississippi Florida and Tennessee to have education savings accounts seas that enable families to Deposit their child a state per Pupil funding in an account that can be used for a variety of education options no longer will students there have to put up with one size fits All education of the neighbourhood Public school provides the Best fit for their child Fine. But if they want to use the Money that would be been spent at their child s a assigned Quot school for a different education option they can do that instead. Unless the american civil liberties Union gets its Way. They recently filed a lawsuit to Stop Nevada s seas from taking effect. This despite the fact that gov. Brian Sandoval signed the program into Law this Spring and that it began accepting applications a few weeks ago. More than 2,200 parents have applied and who can blame them they know they la be Able to use seas to for a Host of education related services including private school tuition online learn ing special education services and therapies textbooks and curricula a was the name implies a writes education expert Lindsey Burke Quot parents can also save unused funds rolling dollars Over from year to year to for future education in Short they have High Hopes for their children. They want the Best possible future for them. And they know a Good education is key to that. Seas can help them get there so Why does the Alco object its lawsuit alleges that Nevada s Esa program a violates the Nevada constitutions prohibition against the use of Public Money for sectarian religious yet the Esa funds go from the state to parents not from the state to religious schools. The parents Are the ones who can then use it to choose the right education option for their child which May or May not include a religious school. As the foundation for excellence in education told the Arizona court of appeals in a similar Case in 2013 a the Esa does not result in an appropriation of Public Money to encourage the preference of one religion Over another or religion per be Over no religion. Any Aid to religious schools would be a result of the genuine and Independent private choices of the parents. The parents Are Given numerous ways in which they can educate their children suited to the needs of each child with no preference Given to religious or non religious schools or that s been a godsend to students such As Max Ashton. Max is legally Blind and used an Esa prior to finishing High school. According to Max a father Marc a Blind student in Arizona gets about $21,000 a year. Which represents what the state spends to educate a student such As Max in the pub-1 in school system. A we took our 90 percent of that paid for Max to get the Best education in Arizona plus All of his braille All of his technology and then there was still Money left Over to put toward his College education Marc explains. A so he is going to be Able to go on to Loyola Mary mount University because we were Able to save Money even while sending him to the Best school in Arizona out of what the state would normally for him so on top of everything else seas save taxpayer Money even As they expand Opportunity for children and opponents of school Choice want to Stop this that completely defies logic. Somebody is truly Blind Here All right and its not Max Ashton. We need More school Choice not less. You done to need a diploma to see that. De Feulner is founder of the heritage foundation .
