A few weeks ago, Republican Senator Joe Wilson made the news when he shouted “You Lie!” during a speech given by the President to Congress. The news media was all over this and, because they are pretty much a liberal bunch that blindly follows the current administration, made a lot of noise about what Senator Wilson did. To them, it was an “outrage” that anyone would do that to the President of the United States. Of course they forgot how the Democrats treated George W.

Now that he’s been elected, he has said that creation will not be allowed in those schools and that evolution will be taught as fact. Not only that, there is speculation that his plan could force faith-based schools to teach the mandatory sections of the curriculum that deal with homosexuality and graphic sex education. Is this the leader that Ontario needs? Continue Reading Are there any honest politicians?…
