Veterans Day

Thank You Veterans

November 11 is our day to remember that freedom is not free.  Today we honor and remember those that have served and are serving in uniform.  The words of Ronald Reagan remind us that all Americans must defend and cherish freedom because as he said in 1967, "Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."  Let us be ever vigilant and respectful of those that wore and wear uniforms to protect our God given right to freedom and liberty.

Audit the CVG Airport Board!

Airport boards as early as the late 1970’s have been making bad decisions in the governance of the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky airport, also known in airline parlance as CVG. A Faustian bargain was made with Delta Airlines to make CVG one of its major hubs. Although the designation of CVG as a Delta hub seemed like a good idea at the time, and incontrovertibly contributed billions to our economy, in return Delta has gouged local airline consumers for years with their overpriced flights (CVG Needs Competition to Lower Fares, 2013). More than 90 percent of travelers through CVG were flying Delta in the 1990s and into the early 2000s, and the airline developed a stranglehold on fares here (Can Frontier survive where others dared fly?, 2013). The monopoly Delta enjoyed at CVG allowed them to discourage or crush any meaningful competition that would have facilitated lower fares. Low-cost carriers were outgunned by aggressive price-matching by dominant carrier Delta Air Lines (Can Frontier survive where others dared fly?, 2013).

***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***

Friday, November 8, 2013

Governor Steven Beshear has enacted Common Core science standards for Kentucky Schools, despite the state legislature’s sub-committee’s 5-1 decision against implementation. 

According to the article written by Thomas McAdam in the Derby City News, the General Assembly’s bicameral Administrative Regulation Review Subcommittee found the proposed standards lacking in academic rigor.

On Thursday, November 7, The Core Group of Northern Kentucky (NKY) Tea Party leaders passed a resolution to support and help fund a lawsuit against Governor Steve Beshear's action. The lawsuit will challenge the Governor’s authority to bypass the legislature to implement by “Executive Order”.

The lawsuit will be filed by David Adams, who has a pending lawsuit to be heard by the Supreme Court against the Governor regarding the “Executive Order” implementation of the “Affordable Care Act” and Medicaid expansion in Kentucky.

President of the NKY Party, Larry Robinson said that Governor Beshear is acting illegally and not allowing the checks and balances of the state government to operate as designed by our founders. Vice President of the NKY Tea Party, Erik Hermes added that his actions are unconstitutional and it is the responsibility of the citizens to challenge these illegal actions by the Governor.

The Next Step Common Core Meeting Tuesday November 5th

At the August 29th meeting we learned how Common Core takes away control of our children’s education from us and the local officials that we elected. We also were informed that Common Core violates the Constitution by federalizing education. We  found out that the Common Core Standards in math will put us years behind other countries. We had Representative Andy Thompson from Ohio show us his bill to repeal Common Core.
 
Now is the time for us to take the next step. We will have Steve Shreeve as our speaker.  Steve is an Oldham County Resident and father of four school aged children. He became aware of Common Core earlier this year when, together with his wife, he began to discover how changes in the public school curriculum and philosophy were affecting his children. After learning more about the underlying philosophy of Common Core, he began connecting with others to organize against this effort to nationalize our schools. His presentation will cover how the ideas behind Common Core are manifest in all stages of education and what concerned citizens can do to prevent its poor content, database surveillance, and high costs from destroying our education system.
 
The time for us to move forward and become active on the education of our youth is upon us. History shows us that Adolph Hitler sought to centralize and control education. We must not allow the minds of our youth to be dominated by the Federal government.
 
Our Repeal Common Core…The Next Step event will take place on Tuesday evening November 5th from 7- 9 pm at the Crescent Springs City Municipal Building…739 Buttermilk Pk in Crescent Springs, KY 41017. The future of our country is at stake.
