In 2018, several states have seen large-scale teacher protests. West Virginia saw teachers protest low pay and poor working conditions in February. The following month, teachers in Arizona did the same. These complaints have now migrated to my home state of Colorado. The complaint these teachers seem to have is that they aren’t paid like their counterparts in New York or California. The Numbers Here’s the data. The average West Virginia teacher makes $45,622, those in Arizona make $47,218, and Colorado teachers make $46,155. Compared with the average salaries of teachers in California and New York, who pull in $77,179 and $79,152 respectively, one...Read More

Jordan B. Peterson, Professor of Psychology at the University of Toronto, is a man for our times. Peterson is proving a force to reckoned with. He is erudite, highly articulate, and–importantly–willing to use YouTube to reach audiences who might never otherwise take an interest in his Jungian theories of personality.

In a recent VICE interview, when asked whether men and women can work together, Peterson claimed he didn’t know. When pressed for more, he...Read More
Once again, the media has shown their true colors as they gushed over North Korea’s centralized authority and statist dictatorship.

During these ‘games’ tens of thousands of North Koreans, of all ages, take part in synchronized dance and gymnastics performances....Read More
Europe’s self-made crisis continues to roll on. Refuges keep coming, and elites continue wheeling and dealing (although they are growing desperate). Europe is nearing its refugee limit, and dissenters are still decrying the transformation of their historic nations into Islamic fiefdoms. In the last fifteen years, book upon book and article upon article have been published, each outlining the many ways that Europe is killing itself through immigration. The fight against Islam in Europe has suffered setbacks. Geert Wilders and Marine Le Pen, sources of hope for many who desire to see Europe survive, were defeated in the polls this year. Angela Merkel won...Read More
Hillary’s back! The worst candidate perhaps in our political history who couldn’t shake a walking corpse named Bernie Sanders and lost to an orange man is back in the news. I hope she makes a comeback, I really do. I want her to return to Democratic leadership, so she can continue to screw up the party. Three Reasons Hillary is Bad for the Democratic Party First, she’s an awful human being who reflects badly upon her party. The fact that this woman is still a prominent Democrat tells us all we need to know about the Democratic party. It...Read More
