Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

The Failure of American Schools

The left's answer? Don't change anything, just dump more money into the failing education system.
Teachers & administrations are constant looking for better methods.

Things that are proven are smaller class sizes.

Republicans think cutting funding will help.

Republicans think fewer teaches will help.

Republicans think pulling school choice will help as they pat themselves o the back for saving a couple of kids while leaving the vast majority stranded in a poor school with less funding.

Romney Ryan will cut pell grants.

Romney Ryan will cut federal aid to the States throwing more teachers out of work & increasing class size.

Yesterday I had mohs surgery to have a melanoma removed. Going back today to see if I need more slicing and dicing. In two weeks I'm having more mohs for a less dangerous basal cell incident.
I figure after ObamaKare kicks in all the mohs surgeons will be backed up a couple years, busy removing tatoos from illegal Mexicans with their new free insurance.
Cute. Good luck with the melanomas__they can be unforgiving.

BTW tats make them much harder to find.

Also: This just in___yesterday Turkish fighter jets forced a Syrian passenger aircraft coming from to land at Ankar and officials have just confirmed that it was carrying Russian made arms.

Some people do desperate things in desperate times that they wouldn't do any other time.
Social Security disability claims skyrocketed during the past four years at the same time jobs are impossible to find. The government has so many backlogged claims, they don't have the manpower or the time to determine if all of them are legitimate.
Most of the 47% who receive some sort of government help can't find a job either.
The rest of us are working our tails off supporting our own families while supporting those who simply can't find a job or gave up looking for one.
The problem is there are no jobs. The rise in part-time employment isn't good news.
Miller wasn't being serious. He was making an observation. If Obama is reelected, the message will be to a lot of people why work if the other half of the country doesn't have to because this president would RATHER them to be on the government dole?
This buck stops at Obama's desk. His policies created this environment.
Obama's policy created this recession?

Really, your lies get bolder & bolder - the Romney effect.

Because if progressive liberals win this election - even by a small margin - the already overabundance of intolerance against Christians is only going to get worse.

Black Reds Under the Bed!

Mildly surprised to see Robert Merry plug The American Spectator’s Frank Marshall Davis piece, at least so uncritically. It’s a review of Paul Kengor’s biography of Davis, the American communist who was some sort of mentor to Obama in his teenage Hawaii years. Merry wonders why the mainstream press hasn’t made more of the Davis story–and what it says about Obama. I think that most people have decided it doesn’t say much of anything about Obama, in that probably half the people in politics today had some kind of extremist associations during their late teens and early twenties–whether the League of the South or SDS radicals. There are well-worn cliches about this.

But the Davis phenomenon points to an interesting wrinkle about American history. In one of his interviews, Kengor breathes a bit heavily about finding that the father-in-law of Obama’s associate Valerie Jarrett was also a communist. We’re being ruled by the Chicago Reds! But you know what? If you were a black American in the 1930s and ’40s, educated, politically active–and (this is the important thing) wanted to be involved in integrated politics, and work cooperatively with white people, the CPUSA was, if not the only game in town, pretty close to it.

I haven’t worked my way through Mark Naison’s scholarship on the subject, but I do recall being taken aside long ago by my late friend, historian and democratic socialist Jim Chapin long ago and had it explained that many blacks involved in mainstream Democratic politics had some sort of old CP roots, exactly for that reason. It was no surprise that one finds pretty bright traces of pink in the backgrounds of Jesse Jackson’s or MLK’s old advisors, because that was where the openings were for ambitious black Americans. Once America began integrating more seriously (which coincided with the Soviets coming to terms with the crimes of Stalinism) this particular niche of black radicalism dried up.

Communism was flawed in theory and evil in practice, but a lot of people saw it differently in the 1930s,’40s, and ’50s. To get some sense of the relatively normal, upstanding white people in the communist orbit, it might help to pick up Mary McCarthy’s highly readable The Group or Lionel Trilling’s sublime The Middle of the Journey. And they didn’t even have the excuse of segregation.

America’s Journey From "Dixiecrats" to "Rednecklicans"

The Republicans deny that they are the electoral refuge for America's bigots. But whenever an ex-Klansman, decrying the mongrelization of the white race, enters a primary election somewhere in Louisiana or Texas, it's always a Republican primary.

The Republicans insist they are "working hard" to win African-American votes. But the G.O.P.'s chronic failure to crack even 10 percent among black voters indicates that they're working harder to foster a constituency they value much more dearly, commonly described as "non-college-educated white males," which is pollster code for "rednecks and yahoos."

The G.O.P. regularly trots out black appointees to showcase their openmindedness. Trouble is, when these G.O.P. "house Negroes" are allowed to speak, they avoid terms like "social justice" and "voting rights." Examined closely, they tend to be non-partisan overachievers like Colin Powell or -- at worst -- self-loathing Stepin Fetchits like Clarence Thomas. Or they're just trying to pass for white, like Condoleezza Rice.

The "race card" works for the G.O.P., in a circular way. It validates racists by giving them a place to go, thus perpetuating America's historic traditions of bigotry and segregation, which nurtures the Republicans as the party that's not prejudiced against the prejudiced. Around and around...

Still, I gotta ask: Why aren't some (or any) Republicans embarrassed?

Hi Carol, things are tense in the office today. Homer is wearing a Joe Biden cheese head hat. He's been spewing nonsense all morning long using his best Joe Biden impression. I think he is getting amped up for tonight's debate. Good thing the only link from me to Homer is the webcam setup.
Unfortunately I am going to miss the goat sacrifice (Joe being the goat) tonight. I will be in the air.
Maybe it's a good thing you'll miss the debate by being in the air. It might be too difficult for a lot of us to watch sitting at home.

But just tell Homer to make sure his imitation "shock collar" fits properly and well-hidden if he wants to pretend he's Joe Biden.
