Beat the Cowboys!

Beat the Cowboys!

Worthington BLOG: Back to School

It’s time to send the kids back to school this week. While my younger children seem to be pretty excited about going back to school, my teens are not happy.

Do we really want the government to tell us how much profit we are allowed to make?

Do we really want the government to tell us how much profit we are allowed to make?

That’s exactly what would happen, if new legislation proposed by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez passes.  Bernie and AOC announced new legislation to cap credit card interest rates at 15%.

The “guns-in-school” issue fix is simple

Let me clarify. This idea does not stop bullying, fix mental health issues, address pharmaceutical issues, increase morality, solve the never ending adolescent issues of hormones, heartbreak, jealousy or self- confidence.
