Who does he think he is? This young, handsome, articulate Senator from Florida. Like another up and comer, the young Governor from New Jersey, his knack for verbal brevity is exceeded only by his near-eidetic command of facts and figures. The combination makes him more effective than his elders in this text-driven world of 10-second… Read More Marco Rubio Against “Goliath”
Tonight we will hear another lecture about fairness and patriotism from a man who just ain’t all that into us as a nation. Most important, he will pepper the speech with his usual rosy phrases that sound like Utopia is just within our grasp, if we’ll only shut up and follow him into the abyss.… Read More Glossary for State of the Union Address
Originally posted on COMMON CORE:
Robert Scott was the Texas Commissioner of Education when Common Core rolled into town on the Race to the Top grant application train. In this video, he says many important things. None are more important than his opening, where he states that his experience with the Common Core started: “when I was…
Tonight’s state of union will talk about the importance of investing in education. This is kind of funny to me, because the federal government already took over the entire student loan industry by smooshing it into the health care bill (because they have so much in common, yah!). Then they took over the curriculum by… Read More Call it what it is: An Investment in UNION GROWTH, not Education
Golfer Phil Mickelson, with the latest round of federal and CA tax increases, gets to keep 37 cents of every dollar he earns. That’s a 63% tax. Sure seems more than fair, patriotic, and a LOT more. Why, it’s just a Pelosi botox treatment away from France’s shocking 75%. And yet, when Mickelson publicly said… Read More Call it what it is: ACHIEVEMENT TAX
Beyonce lip synced the National Anthem at the Presidential Inaugural. Brouhaha ensues. Small potatoes, says part of me. She did something that most people just shrugged off – no biggie, everyone does it sometimes, she didn’t have time to rehearse with the band, more excuses, move on. All true. And on the opposite side of… Read More Symmetry
When Hillary Clinton finally showed up in person to answer questions about the murder of 4 Americans in Benghazi, I was surprised. Surprised that she showed up, I mean. But then I realized, I’d been “had” again. The attack and murders occurred on September 11, 2012. Between her “travel schedule”, the “Benghazi flu” attack,… Read More Hillary would rather be Incompetent than Negligent.
We’re not talking about confiscation, but ahhhhh wouldn’t that be nice? POTUS joked in his press conference yesterday that “nobody’s talking about confiscating weapons” … and as he seems biologically programmed to do, he made the obligatory accusation that it’s the radical right that wants to “gin up” the fear about that issue. And yet… Read More Confiscation? That’s the radical fringe “ginning” up the fear
See Walter Williams video, explaining the Constitutional 2nd Amendment It’s not about hunting birds. The left hysterically proclaimed that everyone has an inextricable right to health care, home ownership, college education, even a cell phone – but protecting ones’ own life? Um, not so much. The one thing that actually is explicit in the Constitution,… Read More Your rights? We’ll let you know.
