Texas power company collects $500 million in 'taxes' that don't exist

Millions of people living in the Dallas-Forth Worth Metroplex region of North Texas have basically been getting ripped off on their electric bills since at least 2008, and very few of them are the wiser, according to new reports. A federally-mandated utility tax levied on customers by power company Oncor has ratcheted up hundreds of millions of dollars over the past few years, but none of this cash has been used by the company to pay any actual federal taxes, says a new study.

Unexpected twists in case of deadly blast at Texas fertilizer plant

The arrest Friday of a first responder to the deadly April 17 fertilizer plant blast in West, Texas, on explosives charges, is a new wrinkle that may call into question whether the incident that killed 14 people – including 12 firefighters and paramedics – was in fact a tragic industrial accident, as most people in the area believed.

Texas authorities arrested Bryce Reed, a paramedic with West Emergency Medical Services, at 2 a.m. Friday and have since charged him with possession of a pipe bomb. Mr. Reed was among those who responded first to the fertilizer plant explosion and served for a time as incident commander at the site. He was also shown giving a taped eulogy for explosion victim Cyrus Reed at an April 25 memorial in Waco, Texas, attended by President Obama.

The Federal Government’s $16 Billion Education Scam

The federal government is planning to spend another 16 billion dollars to implement programs that are basically the same as those paid for during the 1950s. Many legislators, parents, and taxpayers have been given the false impression that Common Core State Standards and the International Baccalaureate programs will reform and improve education. However, these two newest educational policies are an extension of old policies that created weaknesses in the American educational system and destroyed its international reputation for excellence.

During the 1950s, educational expert Benjamin S. Bloom claimed in his Handbook I: Cognitive Domain that educators are to influence “the ways in which individuals are to act, think, or feel.” Bloom’s Handbooks explain that the goal of education is to control “much of the individual’s behavior” and to integrate “beliefs, ideas, and attitudes into a total philosophy or world view.” Academics became secondary.
