Mr. Justice Stephen G Breyer recently expressed his concern that our young people are not being taught the fundamentals of how our Federal Republic works and therefore are not armed with the skills needed to make informed decisions or to rationally hold our leaders accountable.

It is the purpose of this blog to in some small way help to factually inform our countrymen and our neighbors as well about our government, our society, our culture, our history and all elements that have contributed to where the United States of America finds itself today.

This blog is not intended to be a forum for partisan bickering, as we already have plenty of venues for that.  We do, however, have”Hyde Park” for the purpose of thoughtful debate.  We only ask that the dialogue remain respectful and polite.
