What's f**king scary is you suckers will fall for anything Glenn Beck dangles in front of you, without thinking for yourself, true or not.
I am not a fan of MHP, she just annoys me for some reason, so I never paid much attention to the commercial.
I just watched it, and as usual, the hysteria can only be bought by stupid people, or people blinded by their agenda.
The premise of her ad is the first line:
"We have never invested as much in public education as we should have..."
Now, as far as I know, she is/was a professor, so I'm not surprised to hear this.
In that context, it sounds to me like what she is saying is we as a nation need to invest more in public education, rather than leaving it SO MUCH up to the parents. She is saying it benefits us as a nation if more children are better educated, even if the means of their parents would make that challenging for individual families.
She is in no way, let me make that clear - in no way - suggesting a government takeover of children.(Seriously - you people are frickin crazy.) She is talking about a more "community-minded" approach to PAYING FOR education.
She's also not a Senator, so who the f cares what she thinks?
Again, not a fan, cannot bring myself to watch her show or watch her as a guest on any other show. But I can't let the righties get away with another outbreak of mass hysteria over nothing. You're such little girls. "Oh my, what will happen, Auntie Em, I'm frightened!" Buck up, bitches.
We need less political agendas in schools, we need less condom on cucumber practice, we need more discipline and we need more parental involvement. We spend an astronomical amount on public schools, for a pitiful return.

You don't know much, do you?

LIBERALS AND THEIR POLICIES DESTROYS FAMILIES he was turned away from TV interviews because he refused to criticize his dadArizona Congressman Matt Salmon said that even though his son is openly gay he does not support same-sex marriage
His son, also named Matt Salmon, was in talks to appear on CNN and MSNBC to talk about his father's stance against same-sex marriage
Says that the networks lost interest when he told them he wouldn't criticize his father

Comes after Republican Senator Rob Portman changed his stance on the issue in light of his son's homosexuality

The openly gay son of a Republican Congressman who refuses to change his stance against same-sex marriage is now speaking out after he had multiple interviews cancelled after he told the bookers that he would not bash his father.
Congressman Matt Salmon from Arizona has the constant support of his son, whose name is also Matt Salmon, and now the junior Salmon is speaking out against media outlets who refused him after he told them of his peaceful relationship with his father.
'I had one interview with Lawrence O'Donnell and that one was actually cancelled because they told me they had intended to be critical of him and so since I was unwilling to do so they said that maybe they could find something for me to talk about later on down the road so they cancelled that one,' Salmon told a local news station.
'People want controversy.'

How many civilians and children have his drones murdered this year?
Is welfare still running, dumbass? Was the program shut down?

Obama agreed to work with a REPUBLICAN governor who had a plan that he said would help improve the number of people on welfare. Obama agreed on a temporary basis & if the numbers don't show improvement on two years, then the deal is off.,

Ummmmmmm. working to help get people off welfare & you, being a dumbass, b*tch about it.

How many innocent civilians were killed in the Iraq war.

Petition to Take Back Obama’s Peace Prize

Norman Solomon, the former anti-war congressional candidate and co-founder of RootsAction.org , says the state of peace in the world “has gone from bad to worse” in the 40 months since President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. RootsAction.org is circulating a petition, asking the Nobel committee to take back the prize, which was awarded early in Obama’s first term. As one petitioner wrote:“A pre-emptive peace prize works about as well as pre-emptive war.”

OBAMA MAN OF PEACE LOLOLOLOl Mumia on the Real Dr. King

Political prisoner Mumia Abu Jamal, serving a life sentence in a Pennsylvania prison, sent a message to a gathering at New York’s historic Riverside Church on the anniversary of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s assassination.“ MLK, who broke with President Lyndon Johnson in a speech at Riverside on April 4, 1967,“was an adversary of the military industrial complex and the mammoth business interests that support it. This is why state power marked him, quashed his voice, and gave him up to a violent death,” said Abu Jamal.

See No Evil, Hear No Evil” at EPA

“When you consider the level of assaults that the planet is under, if ever in our history we needed a strong voice at the agency for communities and people, it’s now,” said Dr. Marsha Coleman-Adebayo, noted whistleblower and a leader in the No Fear Coalition. She said Gina McCarthy, President Obama’s new choice to head the Environmental Protection Agency, is just another representative of the “envirotocracy – green paint on top of a corporate structure”– very much like former EPA chief Lisa Jackson and other predecessors who “hear no evil, see no evil.”

Obama defends plan to cut Medicare and Social Security
After media reports that the Obama administration plans to slash Medicare and Social Security in its latest budget proposal due to be released Wednesday, government officials have been seeking to diffuse popular opposition to the cuts.

In his weekly radio address Saturday, Obama sought to portray the budget proposal, which slashes $1.2 trillion in spending over the course of ten years, as an unavoidable compromise in the face of intransigent demands by the Republicans.“While it’s not my ideal plan to further reduce the deficit, it’s a compromise I’m willing to accept in order to move beyond a cycle of short-term, crisis-driven decision-making… It includes ideas many Republicans have said they could accept as well.”

The Obama administration’s budget proposal, due to be released on Wednesday, will incorporate all of the spending cuts included in previous “Grand Bargain” proposals, including sharp cuts in Medicare, Social Security, federal worker pensions and other vital programs.

White House officials indicated in a press conference last week that the budget proposal will include $1.2 trillion in spending cuts over ten years, including $400 billion in cuts to Medicare and other health care programs and $130 billion from reducing inflation calculations linked to Social Security payments.

In the course of discussions over the “fiscal cliff” earlier this year, the administration publicly released a proposal that includes many other cuts—such as $35 billion in the “reform” of federal retirement programs, the ending of Saturday delivery for the US postal service, and increased fees for airline travel.

The White House budget will be the basis for further negotiations with Republicans, which will inevitably mean even more cuts.

The Medicare cuts will reportedly include means testing for recipients—a move that would transform it from a universal entitlement to an antipoverty program, in preparation for its gutting and ultimate destruction—and a cigarette tax, a regressive consumption tax. The means testing proposal in particular marks a sharp escalation in the attack on Medicare.

“The budget reflects his priorities within a budget world that is not ideal,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said Friday, when the bill was announced.“It requires compromise, negotiation and a willingness to accept that you won’t get 100 percent of what you want.”

But even while seeking to blame the Republicans for the most draconian elements of his proposal, Obama was unapologetic in his calls for slashing entitlements, a proposal opposed by the overwhelming majority of the population. Obama defended the cuts as a way to strengthen a “rising, thriving middle class,” adding that he is in favor of “tough reforms required to strengthen Medicare for the future.”

Talk of “strengthening” Medicare is the standard Orwellian argument employed by both political parties to justify unpopular cuts.
