Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

since news media never report what Race To The Top's actual requirements are, or even that a nationwide wave of school closings and teacher firings is underway, much of the public, and even many teachers and their unions are unable to make the connection between federal policies and their local school crises. Corporate media point helpfully instead to corrupt local officials, greedy organized teachers insufficient reliance on the invisible hand of the free market. News reports in many areas are full of stories about school districts whose certification is imperiled because of looming loss of federal funds, but the public is offered few clues as to exactly WHY the funds are lacking or WHAT measures the district will have to take to get them restored. The fact is, Race To The Top is consciously designed to punish school districts that try to protect their educational assets, and rewards those who eviscerate and sell them off.

President Obama's Race To The Top then, is the direct cause of our national wave of school closings and mass teacher firings from Philly to Atlanta and Los Angeles to Rhode Island. It was local implementation of Obama's Race To The Top mandates that forced Chicago teachers out on strike last fall, and it's reluctance to carry out these measures that now imperils education funding in cities as large as Las Vegas.

The Chicago teachers class action lawsuit is a good thing. But the courts have been captive to the far right wing for a long time now, and are not likely to issue quick and sweeping rulings that upset things as they are. In the end, the only thing that will begin to save public education, that will halt the wave of school closings and teacher firings is mass mobilization on a scale not seen in fifty years. Right now, that seems almost as unlikely as corporate school reform being reversed or halted by the federal court.

What passes for black leadership these days, the descendants of the old line “civil rights” organizations are firmly on the corporate education reform bandwagon. Bill Gates, for example, delivered the 2011 keynote at the National Urban League's annual meeting. The NAACP and similar outfits are no better, all preferring to do the bidding of their funders and their president, over the interests of ordinary black families and their children. Even teachers unions are handicapped. Unlike the Chicago Teachers Union most haven't spent the last few years forging deep ties with organized forces in their school communities, and lack even a tradition of standing up for their own members they way labor unions ought to.

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.
President Obama is in a stronger position after the election.

In human history, the notion that everybody is entitled to a quality public education is still relatively new, and has powerful enemies. President Obama is one of these. It was the insistence of newly freed slaves that led to the first universal public education laws in the South. African American leaders till now have always been stalwart champions of public education. Until we raise up a new crop of leaders and movements not beholden to corporate funding, not disposed to uncritical worship of corporate power wielded by a black face, public education will continue to wither and die.

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?

I love it when you uninformed dumbass right whiners spout stuff you are obviously wrong about.
1) Obama worked for a private church group as a community organizer.
2) Obama worked for a private law firm as a lawyer.
3) Obama worked for a Private university as a lecturer.
4) Obama was self employed as a author & wrote a couple of best selling books.
Four examples of why you are so uninformed.
My God, are all you right whiners this frickin stupid?
Obama's resume:

Two stints as a summer intern
Some work on something called "Project Vote" (ACORN)
... and somehow with only this in his resume and never having passed the bar or ever even seen the inside of a courtroom as a lawyer, he gets put on the faculty at the University of Chicago Law School.

Constitutional scholar....

BWAAAAAAWW HAAAAAAAAAAAAWW HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWW

I'm betting Obama hasn't even read the Constitution.

Fidel Castro, after 50 years, is still implementing his fairness utopia on the idiots liberals Cubans!!!
We can only hope more clear-thinking black Americans will continue to educate their fellow black Americans.

They are out there speaking loud and clear.

However, there will always be certain segments in any society who prefer to be lazy at the expense of others - of all races.

If black republicans continue to grow in number and if they continue to emphasize the message that dignity and self-worth is far better than being dependent on democrats and taking their handouts for votes, there's hope more will come back home to the party who championed their civil rights.

Damn. I don't believe it. We have here a person who knows everything. I guess I've been asking the wrong people to answer these questions.
Ok, manifestly dominant know-it-all, answer these two questions:
Where exactly was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?
And;
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
A location is required to answer the first question, and a source of money is required to answer the second question.
Losers don't get to ask questions.

They exist to bekicked around by the winners.

You, sir, are the one being duped into believing something that is not entirely true.
Will you admit Democrats also played a major role in this economic downturn?
If you can't - or won't - there's no point in continuing this discussion.
Carol, you are absolutely right.

Of course both sides are to blame for the spending mess.

But you spent years insisting it was only Dems, even as Bush ran up huge deficits and the economy collapsed.

Unfunded Wars?? Unfunded Medicare program??

Your blaming the minority party,while yours was in charge of Senate, House, and POTUS is what earned you all the abuse.

You had to be dragged, kicking and screaming, into admitting Bush had much to do with the disaster his policies produced.

If you'd been honest from the beginning, sonic and others would have beenmuch easier on you.

But your lies made it impossible.

You call that "work". You obviously, never had a real job either, or you wouldn't make such an ignorant post, Dumb Dave.
the part about Obama being the author of two books is a SCREAM. the books were full of distortions made to fit Obama's agenda. if ANY other presidential candidate had written such lies--the MSM Media would have shredded the book AND the candidate.

not this one though and the answer why is post #1 by Jeebus in this topix thread.
