when President Obama walked into the White House door. What did he do? Did he turn it around? Or did he double down? The answer is that in the spirit of corporate bipartisanship, president Obama sided with the charter school sugar daddies instead of black teachers, black parents and their children.

President Obama appointed Chicago Schools CEO Arne Duncan Secretary of Education. A champion of privatization, Duncan had closed dozens of Chicago schools, many on short notice, some at the apparent behest of gentrifying real estate developers. Duncan fired so many veteran black Chicago teachers to , fill their slots with mostly white rookies, that teachers sued him for racial discrimination in federal court and won. Duncan even introduced military charter schools in Chicago, in one case handing a west side middle school to the US Marine Corps.

No Child Left Behind had been passed by a Democratic congress in the first days of the Bush administration. Opposition to its policies was widespread, and much of that opposition was among Democratic constituencies. So President Obama's signature education policy initiative, would bypass Congress and the opportunity for public debate on the disastrous effects of existing pro-privatization policies.

Secretary Duncan at his side, President Obama introduced Race To The Top, drawn up by the Bill & Melinda Gates, the Eli Broad, Boeing, Walton Family and other foundations. Under Race To The Top states and school districts are forced to bid against each other for many of the same education dollars they used to receive as a matter of course. The winning districts are those who apply Race To The Top's four official solutions to their so-called “failing schools.”

Race To The Top's four federally mandated “solutions,” which are never spelled out by corporate media news outlets, are “school transformations,”“school turnarounds,”“school restarts,” and “school closures.”

That's because you liberals are all the mental cases that need the help, no other reason. Real American, you, a liberal? How's Al Gore and Al Jazerra, bird brain?

Let's just hope that Obama is not foolish enough to move toward gun confiscation, something that could never pass Congress and could only result from usurpation of power.

You nitwits who cling to your guns and religion are in for a big wake up call.

You're all cowards who hide behind tough talk.

Like your hero Zimmerman, who stalked a kid, then got his butt whipped and had to rely on a gun.

Cowards. Too weak and flabby to fight like a man, you hide behind guns.

They won't take your handguns. But if you're stupid enough to own an AR-15 or similar weapon, better kiss it goodbye now.

Obama Screws the Hard-Working Poor:
A Nebraska Wendy's franchise is slashing employee hours so the owners do not have to pay for health benefits for their workers under ObamaCare's requirements.
WOWT reports about 100 workers in non-management positions at 11 Omaha-area Wendy's will have their hours cut to 28 a week.
Gary Burdette, Vice President of Operations for the local franchise, tells the station that his restaurants cannot afford to pay for health coverage for all their employees under the new Affordable Health Care Act.
President Obama's health care overhaul requires employers to offer health insurance to employees working 32-38 hours a week.
Wendy's worker T.J. Growbeck says the reduction in hours will have a big effect on him and many of his coworkers.
“I'm hoping that I can get some sort of promotion because then I would get my hours, but everybody is shooting for that because of the hours being cut,” Growbeck told WOWT.
No, President Obama is looking out for the working poor. Franchisees like the one who owns those Wendy's store will soon discover herself out of business, The Darden restaurants saw their business decrease by 37%. They're just whining because they want to keep workers working at slave wages with no benefits. Those days are over. Responsible retailers like Whole Foods, Target, Costco, Starbucks etc. realize that their employees are valuable and provide parttime employees who work 20 hours with health insurance benefits.

Vice President Joe Biden kicked off three days of meetings on gun violence Wednesday as part of his task force aimed at presenting proposals to President Obama by the end of the month.
But even before the first session could begin – a closed-door meeting with representatives of gun-control groups and victims of gun violence – Mr. Biden demonstrated why the issue is so fraught. He suggested unilateral action by the White House, stoking long-held fears that Mr. Obama plans to do whatever he can to limit access to firearms and ammunition. Biden’s remark also caused a dip in the stock price of gunmakers and retailers, according to CNN.
"The president is going to act," Biden said to reporters before the meeting. "There are executive orders, there's executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet.”

A petition to impeach President Obama for repeatedly violating the Constitution has surpassed the required number of signatures to mandate an official White House response.
The petition, which is posted on the ‘We The People’ section of whitehouse.gov , lists four different examples of how Obama has acted unconstitutionally.
The primary reason is Obama’s failure to obtain congressional authorization for the war on Libya last year. Under Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, the power to declare war lies with Congress.
In June last year, President Obama arrogantly expressed his hostility to the rule of law when he dismissed the need to get congressional authorization to commit the United States to a military intervention in Libya, churlishly dismissing criticism and remarking,“I don’t even have to get to the Constitutional question.”
In July 2011, Congress specifically rejected the Obama administration’s attempt to seek approval for war on Libya but the White House later supported a NATO-led assault anyway, terming it a “kinetic” action.
Obama tried to legitimize his failure to obtain Congressional approval for military involvement by sending a letter to Speaker of the House John Boehner in which he said the military assault was “authorized by the United Nations (U.N.) Security Council.”
In March, Congressman Walter Jones introduced a House Resolution which expressed,“The sense of Congress that the use of offensive military force by a President without prior and clear authorization of an Act of Congress constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under article II, section 4 of the Constitution.”
The other reasons listed on the petition to impeach Obama include appointing so-called czars without Senate approval. When Obama signed a 2011 budget package into law which removed funding for Obama’s advisers on climate change, the auto industry, health care and urban affairs, Obama attached a signing statement indicating he would ignore this provision, prompting Rep. Steve Scalise to accuse the President of acting like a “dictator” in choosing which laws to follow and which to ignore.
The petition also notes that,“Forcing US citizens to get health insurance whether they want it or not,” under Obamacare is unconstitutional. When Obamacare was upheld by the Supreme Court last year, it was done so by classifying mandatory health insurance as a tax, otherwise the whole bill would have been unconstitutional. Justice Anthony Kennedy, and Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito all argued that there was a “mountain of evidence” that the mandate is not a tax.“To say that the individual mandate merely imposes a tax is not to interpret the statute but to rewrite it,” they wrote.
The petition to impeach Obama has already surpassed 27,000 votes, meeting the 25,000 requirement to mandate a response by White House officials

Follow us:@washtimes on Twitter‘Furious’ guns killed 16 kids
By GERRY SHIELDS
Last Updated: 1:19 AM, October 1, 2012

WASHINGTON — Weapons from the botched federal gun-trafficking operation were used to kill 16 Mexican teenagers, according to a report.
The youths were attending a party in Ciudad Juarez in January 2010 when they were killed by weapons from the Fast and Furious operation, Spanish-language television network Univision reported yesterday.
By Cora Currier, ProPublica
Yesterday, the Obama administration invoked executive privilege to prevent the release of certain documents to Congress related to Operation Fast and Furious, the arms-trafficking sting gone awry that came to light last year.(As we’ve detailed, federal agents lost track of hundreds of guns they sold to suspected gun smugglers, many of which later turned up at crime scenes in Mexico).
The fall-out from the failed operation has been an ongoing battle between Attorney General Eric Holder and congressional Republicans, in particular Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Issa wants documents related to the Department of Justice’s investigation of the operation.
THESE PEOPLE DO NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT KIDS!
ALL THEY WANT TO DO IS GO AFTER THE PEOPLE THAT OBEY THE
LAW AND TAKE THEIR GUNS AWAY FROM THEM!
IF YOU OUTLAW GUNS
ONLY THE OUTLAWS
WILL HAVE
THEM!!!!!!!!
WAKE UP USA!

Yes i agree!I also hope and pray
that the USA Military will fight for WE THE PEOPLE as the Obama administration is Hell Bent on over throwing the USA Goverment!To all the
Military and Law Enforcement please join http://oathkeepers.org/oath/
Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, veterans, peace officers, and firefighters who will fulfill the oath we swore to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.
Our oath is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and we will not obey unconstitutional (and thus illegal) and immoral orders, such as orders to disarm the American people or to place them under martial law and deprive them of their ancient right to jury trial.
We Oath Keepers have drawn a line in the sand. We will not “just follow orders.”
Our motto is “Not on our watch!”
If you, the American people, are forced to once again fight for your liberty in another American Revolution, you will not be alone. We will stand with you.
There is at this time a debate within the ranks of the military regarding their oath. Some mistakenly believe they must follow any order the President issues. But you can rest assured that many others in the military do understand that their loyalty is to the Constitution, and understand what that means.
The mission of Oath Keepers is to vastly increase their numbers. We are in a battle for the hearts and minds of our own troops. To win that battle, Oath Keepers will use written and video testimony of active duty military, veterans (especially combat vets), and peace officers to reach, teach, and inspire our brothers in arms in the military and police to fulfill their oaths and stand as guardians of the Republic.
If you are currently in the military, are a veteran, or are a peace officer, please submit your written and/or video testimony on your oath, so you can help us win that battle for hearts and minds. Your submission may be anonymous.
Guardians of the Republic, fulfill your oath. Join us.
Funny that a treasonous bas tard thinks of himself as a 'guardian of the republic'.

The Gov't has your name and address already. You will be among the first to die if you attempt anything stupid, like rising up against the duly elected and legal Government.

You'll find out just how tiny a hateful minority you are when your neighbors take you down..

Go for it. We need your white hateful blood to refresh the tree of liberty.

Either way, you'll lose.

Heard a discussion about insurance policies and licensing requirements for gun owners that was quite interesting. Tenzing brought that up a few days ago and I think it holds merit.
The insurance companies would assess risk and set premiums accordingly. To drive a car you have to take a driving test; to buy life insurance, you have to pass a physical test. If you get a speeding ticket, your insurance goes up. In Canada there is a one month waiting period, a person has to take a gun safety class and ones spouse or exspouse has to approve if have a weapon or not. Kind of cools peoples jets.
However, would they take on the liability of paying out for murder or mass murder?

Doesn't it say "well regulated militia"? What is regulated now?
A person can buy a gun and give it to someone else, or sell it to anyone. I heard there is a shortage of ammo, these nuts are hoarding, perhaps there should be limits on ammo purchases. i.e. Holmes was able to buy quite a bit online.
Ultimately, I hope they reissue the assault weapons bans and magazines to kill hundreds with one press of the trigger. No one needs that. Period. Get rid of them, ban the manufacture of them entirely. Make them illegal to possess.

This is precisely the pink elephant in the room, and it keeps getting bigger and bigger.
