West Virginia came in 9th out of "Obama's 57 states" according to the 17th edition of Education Week's Quality Counts.
I hope you have nothing to do with the education system as you are clearly an ignoramus.

Hey, ya' trollish buffoon, "The Whites of West Virginia" is a documentary about a family named White who had 22 children, all but one winding up on welfare--flack's seen it. As to you ninth ranking, it's not based on the educational performance of the students, "...New analyses from the EPE Research Center for the Chance-for-Success Index and school finance categories, respectively, capture critical aspects of the broader educational environment and the level and equitability of school funding. In the other updated category, the center examines policies related to transitions and alignment across stages of education. Results for the three other areas in the State-of-the-States rubric..."

practically zero media coverage on this...why?
The Unmourned
'murder at Kermit Gosnell’s abortion “clinic”:
From the Office of the District Attorney in Philadelphia:
Viable babies were born*. Gosnell killed them by plunging scissors into their spinal cords. He taught his staff to do the same.
This is a remarkable moment in American life: A man is killing actual living, gurgling, bouncing babies on an industrial scale – and it barely makes the papers. Had he plunged his scissors into the spinal cord of a Democrat politician in Arizona, then The New York Times, ABC, CBS, NBC and everyone else would be linking it to Sarah Palin’s uncivil call for dramatic cuts in government spending. But “Doctor” Kermit Gosnell’s mound of corpses is apparently entirely unconnected to the broader culture.
And so it goes two years on, at “Doctor” Gosnell’s trial:
Medical assistant Adrienne Moton admitted Tuesday that she had cut the necks of at least 10 babies after they were delivered, as Gosnell had instructed her. Gosnell and another employee regularly “snipped” the spines “to ensure fetal demise,” she said.
Moton sobbed as she recalled taking a cellphone photograph of one baby because he was bigger than any she had seen aborted before. She measured the fetus at nearly 30 weeks, and thought he could have survived, given his size and pinkish color. Gosnell later joked that the baby was so big he could have walked to the bus stop, she said.
Funny!
Notwithstanding Dr. Gosnell’s jest, and the fact that newborns delivered alive are generally regarded as “babies,” the New York Times’ only story on the case is punctilious enough to refer to Gosnell’s victims as “viable fetuses,” and its early paragraphs emphasize the defense’s wearily predictable line that this is a “racist prosecution.”
Instead of my Arizona comparison, what about Sandy Hook? ONE SOLITARY ACT OF MASS INFANTICIDE BY A mentally-ill loner calls into question the constitutional right to guns, but a sustained conveyor belt of infanticide by an entire cadre of cold-blooded killers apparently has no implications for the constitutional right to abortion. As one commentator wondered two years ago:
Does 30 years of calling babies “blobs of tissue” have no effect on the culture?
I'm not sure what all the fuss is about, just thump them on the soft spot with an old chair leg or something? It's not brain surgery.

Just watched a movie the other night about those "re-educating camps" under Mao Tse-Tung's China in the early 1970s.
Children of parents who were independent thinkers and writers were also put in these camps. The two young men in the movie were also children of their parents' "reactionary" writings. They hoarded and hid books that would have gotten them killed had they been discovered.
The best thing about Netflix are the foreign movies - educational and entertaining at the same time.
Yes, I feel the same way about the Holocaust specials on Fox. I can't help missing a little all the horror and excitement of watching the human tragedy play out.

The good thing about a woman having 22 children is if anybody wanted to stop after that you could just fence off her womb and hang posted signs on the slats every 40' or so.

Starting in 1951, Mao Tse-Tung initiated two successive movements in an effort to rid urban areas of corruption by targeting wealthy capitalists and political opponents.

My, my, my...why does this sound so familiar? No surprise but Mao also "sought out Marxists professors" in college.

Anyone wising up yet?

Yet another right whiner hoping America fails. This would be the result of an Obama failure.
You dickweeds really should think about proving yourselves electable through better governing rather than hoping for this President's failure. Especially after the trouncing you got in 2012.
I'm still curious how you can describe this economy as anything other than 'failed'. I've experienced recoveries, this isn't one. This is a 'long overdue' exposure to the "inequality of capitalism", imposed on us by our Dear Leader. The sooner we acknowledge the error of our ways, the sooner lowered living standards and high unemployment will be recognized as necessary, in a "fair and equitable" society.

You got to walk it by yourself...

Don't you believe it friends, you find yourself a pleasant woman or man if that is your preference who's kind and not selfish and doesn't mind sleeping in your arms out under the stars on the hard ground and who knows how to tie size 8-16 parachute Adams' believably and you might never walk alone ever again.
