Now that the MSM has begun letting him down now and then, I guess he’ll need to cultivate another organization.

On April 22, 2013, President Obama hosted 100 student innovators from more than 40 states for the third-ever White House Science Fair. The event was a celebration of amazing and award-winning student-achievements in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. The cohort of kids included app-coders, algae-growers, video-game designers, city-planners, roboticists, and rocket-scientists—most of them not yet old enough to drive

I think you’re Jewish cultural background, you’d probably know this detail.. but isn’t nudge (pronounced noodj) a Yiddish term for “an annoying person”?

anyone who recycles has already been “nudged.” Social psychology is the means.

White House presses for team of ‘nudge’ experts to sway American behavior

Government of the people, by the people, for the people seems to have fallen by the wayside.

Government has now placed itself above the people. And we have become "subjects"...who need to be "controlled".

This project is, on the one hand, insidious. On the other, it is illuminating -- as regards the plans they have for us.

“Day of Prayer ruled unconstitutional

Annie Laurie Gaylor loves America, but she’s no fan of God.

She must be a very unhappy person. I guess her purpose in life is to make others unhappy. And if she truly loves America, why is she doing her utmost to change it into something it was never intended?

She was thrilled Thursday when a federal judge ruled that the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional.

“We are ecstatic,” said Gaylor, co-president of the Freedom from Religion Foundation, which advocates for nonbelievers. Gaylor’s group sued to overturn a federal law that requires the president to declare an annual day of prayer each year. United States District Court Judge Barbara Crabb of the Western District of Wisconsin ruled in their favor.”

From 2010

Socialist America
by J. D. Longstreet

Winston Churchill said: “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” In these few words Churchill summed up for us exactly what Obama and the Democratic Party of America are ramming down the throats of the citizens of the United States today.

We watched over the years as the US Democratic Party adopted more and more of the Marxist agenda and slowly transformed themselves from a freedom loving political party to a Socialist/Marxist party. I first became aware of this transformation in the 1960’s. Since then I have watched as the Democratic Party has slowly shed it’s façade until they now proudly proclaim their socialist agenda.

I understand that many Americans STILL have no idea what socialism is and, unfortunately, they have even less understanding of capitalism. At least two generations of Americans have been taught in the government indoctrination centers, we laughingly refer to as the Public School System, and in our institutions of higher learning, that being liberal, being progressive, is the accepted norm for Americans. They bought it. Apparently, nobody told them that words like “liberal” and “progressive” were cover words for “collectivism,” “socialism”, and “communism”.

Well, I have news for you. Socialism is not “American” by any stretch of the imagination. If fact, it is anti-American.

How was this deception introduced into American government? It was a Democrat President by the name of Franklin Delano Roosevelt who introduced socialism to America and embedded it in our government. He said: “Here is my principle: Taxes shall be levied according to ability to pay. That is the only American principle.” –Franklin D. Roosevelt

American, my Aunt Fanny! That’s PURE socialism!
