Among some of the unreported school crimes are shake downs, compelling children to pay their lunch money as protection money to school bullies or get beaten up.

R.J. Rushdoony: 02:28 In fact, why not advertise Washington DC as hazardous to America’s health. Paying taxes is not easy on either your pocket book or your blood pressure.

Is there no one up there who still believes that Jefferson was right when he says that the best government is the least government. After all, the more controls we get, the less freedom we have. The loss of freedom is very hazardous to the health of a country.
