“I have a message for the politicians that decided that their careers are more important than their children: I’m coming. I have a message for the lawyers who have made a lifetime of suing us into failure: I’m coming.”

My own personnel experience with public education was limited to a year in kindergarten at Horace Mann school. The building still stands today, but no education going on in there anymore unless you consider stabbings and shootings and in particular how to avoid them education. My parents enrolled me in a private educational system starting if first grade. Before you get all twisted the private education was Catholic Schools in which I spent the next twelve years. Going to Catholic grade school was certainly convenient as I could walk there and there certainly was discipline growing up Catholic.
News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories…
Brief 1: Obamagovernment dictates an increase in fuel economy of 10 mpg by 2016 (to 35.5 mpg). Estimate are that this will only cost you another $1000 for your next car, but it will save you over $3000 over the life of the car. If you use government accounting (i.e. Congressional Budget Office rules) they probably assume that the car will last you 25 years. In order to achieve that mileage they will probably have to be plastic so they probably won’t rust. The only real issue will be when some 90-something-year-old T-bones you at an intersection killing you and all of your passengers. Plastic cars kill. The way it works is that an auto manufacturer’s has to produce cars that average the new standards. So all companies have to produce is a super high mileage car to balance the lower mileage cars that American consumers want to buy.
It started as a relatively modest groundswell as average citizen awoke to the path politicians were forcing us down. The groundswell was followed by a trickle as more folks got engaged and even the main stream media started to actually report rather than cheer on the Obama White House.
The groundswell and trickle has lead to a flow!
The first example is the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart. Jon is a liberal stalwart who generally leans severely left while occasionally getting it “right.” While the rest of the lame stream media ignored the Climategate scandal, Stewart made this broadcast. This must have been a shock to Stewarts audience. Ordinarily I would embed the video here, but it is no longer available on YouTube. This link will take you to the clip.
