The way to crush the middle class is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation. – Vladimir Lenin

A letter from the editor.

Posted by iusbvision on March 27, 2009

I would like to thank the loyal readers of the IUSB Vision for our continued success. Hits are up, our posts are featured on other blogs regularly, we have discovered that former presidential candidates, members of Congress, people who have worked in the Dept. of Education, even some governors read our humble little blog.

Special thanks to to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, Students for Academic Freedom, the Indiana ACLU, the Alliance Defense Fund, National Review Magazine and California Legislator Leland Yee for their outstanding leadership in the defense of true intellectual diversity and free speech on campus. Of course, the cause of intellectual diversity and free speech may have been lost without the efforts of a true American hero David Horowitz.

Special thanks are also in order to Michelle Malkin, Ed Morrissey, Andrew Brietbart, Matt Drudge, Johnny Dollar, and yes even the Huffington Post for their leadership in the blogosphere.

Some have been asking us why we have not had much academic and campus news lately. Rest assured that we have not forgotten our campus roots. The news on the economy, the undermining of the ethics processes in the government, the setbacks in the transparency of government, the what are now obvious attempts by government to use this crisis take control over private business and legal contracts, and the lack of any serious action on the mortgage/housing issue have really been “sucking all the oxygen out of the air” and we have feared that campus coverage would be ignored in the fast paced, non stop news cycle in the last six weeks. 

We are sorry to report that there have been many legal and ethical violations of student and faculty rights that we are aware of but have yet to report on. If anything it seems the frequency of these violations are on the increase. We will continue to report on these stories in the near future (and yes we will get caught up on lots of the stories we missed).
