March is Women’s History Month. History has not always been fair to women, don’t even get me started on that big fool Henry VIII, who killed his wives for not giving him a son — when science now knows it was all his fault. My middle-schoolers are always extremely upset about the lack of prominent women in ancient history.

Archer is a very energetic, active, 9-year-old Beagle. He is a little taller than the average Beagle, and has very long ears and very soft fur. His owner recently died and he was returned to Arizona Beagle Rescue. Archer is housebroken and knows basic commands. He would do best with older kids and submissive/mellow dogs. He needs a little work on leash manners, as he does pull and bark at other dogs on walks. He loves to play with toys and runs around the yard chasing birds.

I feel extremely blessed to work with tweens and teens as they learn to navigate the many challenges of adolescence. Aside from the countless benefits of teaching what I love, this journey has rewarded me in countless other ways. For example, although my daughters are young (6 and almost 2), my daily interactions with youth have helped to shape who I am as a parent.

I have written before about Obama appointing 33 czars, to act as central planners. Central planners are required in communist countries, because the government needs to direct policy for all businesses. When we move from capitalism to communism you need to be aware of the differences. In capitalism all businesses work to make their business efficient, so they can compete in the market. In communism the effort is to be inefficient, so they can hire a lot of workers. Obama is going to direct his czars to audit each company, then set their workers salaries (usually 30-50 percent lower). The czars will then require each company to hire 30-50 percent more workers than needed. This will make each company much more inefficient, but because there is no competition it doesn’t matter how efficient you are.
