I believe what I say and believe I am right. Thus, the title of my column, Undeniably Right. Take it as you will, that I'm a conservative or I have a huge ego and believe I am always correct. Sometimes those things overlap, sometimes not.

Don't Believe Your Lying Eyes

David Pakman was on the Will Cain show recently. David hosts a podcast on his own website. He is a perfect example of how the far left will twist things so much that reality becomes a pretzel. Don't believe your lying eyes must be the primary principle by which he conducts his life. Will invited David on his show because the left has decided to portray Donald Trump as cognitively deficient. I guess the whole criminal angle is failing.

David's lone offer of proof is that trump paused for 35 seconds during a recent speech. This is clear evidence that he did not know where he was. He forgot what he was doing. Ultimately something in his brain reengaged and he continued speaking. The video clip of the incident doesn't give me that impression although neither is there a clear reason as to why Trump stop speaking for that length of time. There wasn't anything going on with the audience for example nor was there any apparent malfunction with the audio system.

Inflation Explained for Government School Graduates

Based upon what I've read in social media posts from some of my 'friends' it's clear they don't understand how inflation works. I've begun seeing quite a few posts comparing the cost of living today to what it cost in the '70s or '80s. You've seen the charts, the cost of a new car or a house; groceries etc. They just can't understand how their parents lived so well on $50,000 a year and today you can barely make ends meet with the same salary.

Joe Biden and his supporters were touting the inflation rate of 3.4% released earlier this week. Too many people loved the number but don't understand that it is cumulative on top of all other inflation numbers. I'll wait while you look up the word 'cumulative.'

Let's Make This The Model School

Stacy Gates is the President of the Chicago Teacher's Union. She recently held a press conference where she touted the successes of Richards Career Academy. The school is one of 20 schools in the district that adopted the Sustainable Community Schools model. The Journey for Justice Alliance has pushed this model for 20 years, touting the model as a way to teach children in poor urban areas the skills needed to succeed in life rather than teaching children to succeed at taking standardized tests.

The model boasts 6 pillars:
