Maybe we should teach the Bible

On Thursday, a group of scientists announced that a fossilized human jaw bone has been discovered in a cave in Israel — a discovery that rewrites the story of man’s earliest travels out of Africa by more than 50,000 years.

If confirmed, the discovery would mean man first left Africa between 90,000 and 120,000 years ago.

It’s a fascinating find, and if you’re wondering why I’m writing about it, it’s because I’m concerned our state Legislature is trying desperately to squeeze the life out of what little science we teach now. I’m trying to get in whatever I can before it’s too late.

Congress writes the laws. Courts interpret the laws. Presidents enforce the laws. This simplistic mantra has been memorized by school kids since the U.S. Constitution was written in the late 18th Century. It never has exactly worked like that. Presidents, like your local police officer, have always had some discretion in what laws are enforced and how strictly the laws are enforced. President Obama has pushed that envelope substantially with his executive decrees ordering that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security not enforce dozens of laws on the books pertaining to millions of illegal aliens in this country.

Bachus Comments on Passage of House Budget

Congressman Spencer Bachus (R) from Vestavia say balancing the budget is the moral thing to do following the approval of a House budget resolution for Fiscal Year 2014.

Rep. Bachus said, “If you don’t have a plan, you have little chance of achieving your goal. Restoring fiscal responsibility in Washington must include a balanced budget. Families have to live within a budget and states like Alabama are constitutionally required to balance their budgets. The plan passed by the House sets a path to balancing the federal budget in ten years, reforms entitlement programs, and defunds Obamacare. In contrast, the plan being considered by the Senate would raise taxes by a trillion dollars and never balance the budget while the President hasn’t even submitted a budget yet.”
