Although the women of the United States are confined within the narrow circle of domestic life, and their situation is, in some respects, one of extreme dependence, I have nowhere seen woman occupying a loftier position; and if I were asked... in which I have spoken of so many important things done by Americans, to what the singular prosperity and growing strength of that people ought mainly to be attributed, I should reply, To the superiority of their women.

They Even Fix High School Elections

Get a load of this: from Daily Paul

FULLERTON – The Troy High School senior who was suspended from school and stripped of his student-government post after he broke into a school database to reveal that a teacher altered election results is seeking to undo some of the discipline imposed on him.
Jacob Bigham, 17, and his parents have asked the Fullerton Joint Union High School District to consider expunging from his record his five-day suspension and reinstating him this fall as student-body vice president, in the wake of a public uproar over the way the district handled the election flap four months ago.
Bigham revealed in April that the candidates whom student-government faculty adviser Jenny Redmond named student-body president and vice president for 2012-13 weren't the top vote-getters. He was immediately suspended for five days, stripped of his current post as student-body secretary and barred from assuming the student-body vice presidency that he'd won for 2012-13. Redmond continued teaching the student-government class for the remainder of the school year.

The fish rots from the head down. And now the rot has gotten to the small fry. Yeesh.


  1. Setting a great example for the children. And, the perteaches government. Well, it is realistic. :-(

  2. Falsifying records is the same as stealing. If this teacher did this, what else will they do? What is so important about a SGA election in a high school that you would rig an election? Something else is going on here.

    Pray for Jacob that truth and justice shall prevail.
