This headline about sums it up;
This should be “Nuff said,” but it gets more sickening when you read how the money is spent and the results they get;
“According to the latest data from National Center for Education Statistics, but in 2013 fully 83 percent of the eighth graders in these schools were not “proficient” in reading and 81 percent were not “proficient” in math.”
I never have had the opportunity to update a Framing the Dictionary post and in this case I did so innocently. I decided to “frame” the word misguided and as I checked on my formatting for this category I discovered that I had already featured this word. So here is an update.
This just in…
This is how our President acts at a funeral…
Surprise surprise the jury found George Zimmerman NOT GUILTY. I am not one of the pundits who’ll lament the trajedy that a young man lost his life and another man’s life is ruined. That’s been said ad nauseum over the past 24 hours. I think the next 12 months are going to be interesting as the now innocent Zimmerman goes after the media and celebrities who have slandered him. The folks who have called for his death. Those who still “tweet” that justice was not served. Neither celebrities, sports “stars,” nor the media has a right to defame George Zimmerman and when they did he has a right to take them to court. He certainly shares some of the blame for what happened that night, but he shouldn’t have been portrayed as a public enemy.
Barely a month ago the Obama Administration minions were all over the media predicting gloom, despair, and agony forthcoming from Obama’s plan (YES IT WAS HIS IDEA AND HE SIGNED IT INTO LAW IN 2011) for sequester as I pointed out in my original post available here.
Rather than trying to detail the obvious lies perpetrated by Obama regarding the reductions in the rate of growth (NO THEY ARE NOT ACTUAL SPENDING CUTS…THE FEDS JUST DON’T GET AS MUCH OF AN INCREASE IN SPENDING…I feel like I am screaming) there are two videos worth watching. The first is an exchange between Fox News’ Ed Henry and Obama’s Bagdad Bob, Jay Carney…
A few days ago I posted about the hypocrisy of Obama and the Left using the tragedy of the Newtown murders to achieve their agenda about gun control. In that original post I listed several actions that would save a lot more children’s lives than their attack on the Constitution and the Second Amendment in particular. Some were serious, many were not, all were meant to prove a point. I failed to name the biggest thing that liberals like Obama can do to save children’s lives…millions of children’s lives…every single year!
A few days ago I posted a number of comments by Obama’s “friends“ that were less than complimentary. At the end I purposefully left off the thousands and thousands of gaffes by his running mate and the guy next in line to the presidency, Joe Biden. I shouldn’t be surprised that even Joe couldn’t find a way to force me to use him in the post. IT IS EXTREMELY SCARY THAT THIS LOOSE-TONGUED IDIOT IS THE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. He is like an overdone SNL skit though all SNL skits are almost always overdone. I have to grudgingly admit that the new teeth and hair look better than the old Joe. You can put new hair and teeth on a pig, but it is still Joe Biden.
A few months ago I commented on the transparency of the lame-stream media and the Associated Press specifically as they shamelessly shilled for all things Obama and all things Democrat/Liberal. Last week The AP’s chairman, Dean Singleton, who was perhaps channeling Chris Matthews outwardly gushed in his introduction of President Obama. Here are a few choice phrases from the “unbiased” “journalist;”
“there is no mistaking his name and even I can’t mess it up. It’s Mr. President.”
It’s funny (scary not humorous) how when you dig into a topic you find much more than expected. It is also not unusual to hear more about similar topics once you become aware. Like noticing more of our cars on the road once you buy one. Soon after my previous post I was listening to syndicated talk show host Jim Quinn discussing Obama’s less-than-veiled threat to SCOTUS. Quinn was discussing the hypocrisy of Obama’s attacks on SCOTUS as unelected while his Justice Department was looking to a court to declare the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. Eric Holder was quoted as saying,
As I was driving to work this morning I thought of perhaps one of the best (i.e. worst) examples of unconstitutional actions by our federal government;
Brief 6: Shortly after the new year began in 2012 President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act. Tucked into the bill is a provision that many believe greatly expands the ability of the federal government take you into custody and hold you indefinitely;
