We need to take a stand on important issues

The interlude page in the algebra book was the subject of the humor. Well, actually I am the only one who got the humor. Interlude pages, as I call them, are those pages between chapters, that give you subjects like Math Applied To Life. This one featured positive and negative numbers, so the picture accompanying […]

NFL agreement not victory for free markets

Freedom New Mexico As football fans, we’re pleased to see the National Football League’s players and owners reach a new labor agreement that saves the 2011 season.
