Is summed up perfectly in this short five minute video. I chose to use Fox News video feed for a very specific reason:
The flap is surrounding West Liberty University. Particularly, a visiting professor named Stephanie Wolfe teaching political science. The first problem is always the most obvious. Politics at a liberal arts school. How many of these kids think they were going to get an unbiased opinion of the world? How does someone like Stephanie actually look at what they are doing and think they are doing the best for the kids they can do?
There is nothing Fox has done to merit her disdain OTHER than do what it is she claims to be teaching her students to do, and question authority, no matter how politically correct that authority may at first seem.
Stephanie has completely failed in satisfying the guidelines of her own syllabus.
I am SO SURE West Liberty University will do the right thing for the sake of the students.
And you wonder why our kids aren’t competing with India, China, or South Korea any more? Our college teachers aren’t teaching any more. They are just using classrooms for indoctrinating their political beliefs. ( Yeah I know, nothing new there. But, it needs to STOP. )
On Ronald Reagan’s birthday, let it be known 40 states choose to recognize his birthday. It’s not a holiday or anything. It’s just a note that someone very important to this country was born on this date. Eight states choose to intentionally ignore his birthday. It’s kind of sad really. Those eight states, and their party designation for your own conclusions why they would choose to intentionally snub a great President:
Nothing Obama does seems to go without some element of confusion, crossed signals, or flat out apparent “misinformation”. This week is no different. On August 4, 2012, Reuters ran a LONG description of Obama’s birthday events. Down to the fact that no details would be given of what he and Mrs. Obama planned to do once the lights went down. But, be it known, the kids would be nowhere near the retreat.
President Barack Obama celebrated his 51st birthday on Saturday with a round of golf, then helicoptered to the Camp David presidential retreat for a quiet evening off the campaign trail.
Obama, an avid golfer, played with colleagues and friends at the Andrews Air Force Base in hot, muggy weather conditions before taking Marine One to Maryland’s Catoctin Mountains in the afternoon.

This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.
I find it laughable that the picture warns that it is not to be used for any “political materials” when it was put there for obviously political purposes.
In case you’re curious to the party breakdown, that’s 18 Democrats including Reid, and 1 independent who’s caucusing with the Democrats.
Just to be clear, the first order of business isn’t creating jobs or worrying about the poor, it’s a power grab. Pure and simple and absolutely nothing more. A power grab by the majority party so they don’t have to deal with the minority party at all. That’s all this is.
Just wanted you all to know that when you go preaching that hopey changey crap.
Once again, I can agree with President Obama on something:
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here. Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
But, that was candidate Obama, pandering to the masses against a Republican president. NOW, we got President Obama, pandering to his socialist base:
”They can act responsibly, and pay America’s bills or they can act irresponsibly, and put America through another economic crisis,” he said. “But they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the American economy.”
Hell, that’s not even good enough, six Democrats have sponsored an actual bill to completely eliminate the debt ceiling. Just get rid of it. By not submitting budgets and not having to worry about running out of money, it eliminates the politics of the the process. Brilliant huh? I mean, why even bother, just send a million bucks to every single person in the US and poverty is solved. Simple huh? If you don’t think so, contact these idiots and let them know:
Now, this video makes it obvious to the entire planet that the person attacking the person sitting on a bench intended to kill the victim. You just don’t throw people on the tracks of an oncoming train to get their attention. You do it because said oncoming train would eliminate the witness in your crime of stealing a $100 phone. That is an intent to commit murder.
Now, the way the law is now, even with over 300,000,000 people, is that’s not good enough for the death penalty. That will get you some time in prison, where you’re fed, clothed, and given a bed to sleep in every night.
That needs to change. Intending to kill someone else needs to be punished the same as actually doing it. Mentally and emotionally it’s exactly the same thing and needs to be prosecuted as such. This guy beating a defenseless seated woman and throwing her on the tracks just needs killing in the worst possible way. He’s never going to be an asset to his society.
Gotta love the usual irony of the average idiot voter here. Following Obama’s cue to eat the rich and take everything they ever had, voters elected a richer group of Congressmen than they “threw out”.
Ninety-four new senators and House members joined the 113th Congress. But if voters felt the last group of lawmakers was out of touch with “real America,” the new class may not be better. In fact, according to a new analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics, the median estimated net worth of the incoming freshmen is almost exactly $1 million more than that of the typical American household.
That’s right, those people voted for the very people they voted against.
And to add insult to injury, which is most appropriate in light of the consequences of this last election, the party that has been leading the “eat the rich” mantra, headed by President Obama, is wealthier than the party they accuse of being wealthy:
Afghanistan this week plans to ask during President Hamid Karzai’s Washington visit for more U.S. assistance to be channeled directly to government coffers, the country’s top finance official said.
OK, I’ve been patient enough with this. Afghanistan is a country that attacked us, then provoked us, then crumbled when we reciprocated. We don’t owe them anything. The fear of them returning to Sharia leadership is understandable, but under most normal circumstances, not really an over concern. If we had done our job security wise, their “citizen” would never have been a concern. I’m done with Afghanistan. At this point 100% of the money being sent there is waste and needs to stop so we can balance our budget.
Local police arrested a couple of guys for robbing a Waffle King with a BB Gun. Diane Feinstein immediately hid her BB Gun and is now demanding all toy stores stop selling theirs and all Americans who have one voluntarily give theirs up. After all, people don’t rob Waffle Kings, BB guns do.
