Image of the Day: Biden, Pelosi and Schumer Faceplanted On Jobs in 2021

On the heels of Friday's unsettling jobs report from the Labor Department, we can now judge the performance and promises of Joe Biden and the Pelosi/Schumer Congress against actual reality.  They promised 10.3 million jobs would be created in 2021 if their massive spending and regulation blowout passed, versus 6.3 million jobs if their agenda wasn't passed.  So how did it turn out?  Their agenda was passed, but only 6.1 million jobs were created as the U.S. economy slowed and struggled to recover from the Covid dip, as AEI's Matt Weidinger highlights.  They apparently made things worse, not better, illustrating the sardonic adage, "Don't just do something - stand there."

Haircut Policy Nets Lawsuit Print
Wednesday, April 06 2011

An Indiana junior high school's haircut policy has landed the school and its basketball coach in federal court.

Patrick and Melissa Hayden recently filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis, arguing that the Greensburg Junior High basketball team's haircut policy should be declared unconstitutional after their 14-year-old son was kicked off the team last fall following his refusal to cut his hair in compliance with the team rules. Team rules require players' hair to be above their eyebrows, collars and ears.  The Haydens contend that the policy violates their son's rights and also discriminates by gender because it doesn't apply to female players. 
 
"What they're trying to do here is teach [their son] a life lesson, which simply is that you fight for what's right," Ron Frazier, the Haydens' attorney reportedly told news media sources. "This is classic David versus Goliath, and they want their son to understand that."
 
School district officials say the policy didn't violate the boy's rights, partly because extracurricular activities are considered a privilege, not a right. They say he wasn't denied an education or kicked out of school.
