  • 8th Grade Class Receives Immigration Assignment that Leaves One Dad Shaking His Head

    02/26/2015 8:57:20 AM PST · by TigerClaws · 19 replies
    At Shattuck Middle School in Wisconsin, one 8th grade class was assigned homework on the topic of immigration policy in the United States. The homework, assigned by 8th grade Social Studies teacher Grace Davis, featured a political cartoon with a clearly labeled Democrat laying bricks to convey the building of a “pathway to citizenship,” while the Republican-labeled character is removing the bricks, effectively dismantling any immigration process. The cartoon is originally from the Chattanooga Times Free Press, not the teacher’s own creation.

    The Department of Health and Human Services paid $3 billion to Obamacare insurers as part of a program to limit their losses in covering reduced out of pocket consumer expenses like lower deductibles and smaller total health care costs per year. The only problem is, that Congress never authorized the spending. snip Laws are for little people and we'll decide when and how to spend the people's money. What's that? The Constitution says what about how taxpayer money is spent? Hah! What do they know. They've all been dead for 200 years. To all you Congress people, sit down, shut...

    MIAMI, Fla. - An accidental cellphone call landed two Florida men in jail after their employer heard them discussing plans to steal and sell $8,000 in construction equipment, according to police. David Fanuelsen, 39, and Dean Brown, 22, remained in jail on Monday facing charges of felony grand theft. Their troubles started when Fanuelsen, a construction worker, unintentionally dialed his boss from a phone in his back pocket last Tuesday night, the Key West Police Department said. The employer, Stace Valenzuela, told Reuters he overheard the men discussing plans to sell company equipment.

    Vice President Joe Biden has had a busy couple of weeks. Channeling his inner Ted Kennedy, ole Joe got a little too handsy with Stephanie Carter, the wife of incoming Secretary of Defense, Ash Carter. He slid behind her, grabbed her shoulders and pressed his face against the side of her head. If I didn’t know better (and I don’t), I’d swear he’s sniffing her hair. Or perhaps he was just innocently whispering the gate code for Number One Observatory Circle into her ear.

    WASHINGTON — About 800,000 taxpayers who enrolled in insurance policies through HealthCare.gov received erroneous tax information from the government, and were urged on Friday to hold off on filing tax returns until the error could be corrected. ... Democratic lawmakers pressed hard for the Obama administration to open a “special enrollment period” around tax filing season for Americans who only then realize they face penalties for failing to purchase health insurance last year. Andrew M. Slavitt, the No. 2 official at the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said the period would last from March 15 to April 30.

Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt: Perhaps he was trying to be comforting after her spill on the ice at the Pentagon this morning while she was accompanying her husband on his first day on the job.

Mapes documents and defends Rather’s 2004 attempts to use the forged “Killian documents” to portray former President George W. Bush as someone who shirked duty in Vietnam.

    Nostalgia is overrated, a Harvard psychologist says. “The bad-dominates-good phenomenon is multiplied by a second source of bias, sometimes called the illusion of the good old days,” Harvard psychology professor Steven Pinker said at a forum sponsored by the Cato Institute last November. “People always pine for a golden age.” “They’re nostalgic about an era in which life was simpler and more predictable.” And Dr. Pinker has some cold water to throw at them, metaphorically speaking, of course. “When I told people that I was writing a book on why writing is so bad and how we might improve it,...

They also agreed to bar state and local governments from helping any federal agency that collects metadata like phone and email records without a warrant. Any official who cooperated would be forever barred from holding public office. And if that isn’t enough, the same committee declared that county sheriffs are supreme, meaning they can arrest federal officials — including police — who...

You’ve noticed it: Hillary Clinton is hiding," reads the memo from Sean Spicer, communications director. "Potential Republican presidential candidates are out in public, speaking to voters, and sharing their ideas. But Hillary Clinton is nowhere to be found." Well, we do know she tweeted. Hillary’s only public appearances in 2015 have been in Canada. And in the previous year, almost every public appearance she made came with huge speaking fees—a quarter million...

    News broke this week about a popular independent bookstore in San Francisco that is going out of business thanks to a citywide minimum wage hike that priced the owner out of business. Effectively, the minimum wage for this store's employees was "raised" to zero, as they are losing their jobs. On Thursday morning, the store's owner Alan Beatts appeared on Morning Joe on MSNBC to discuss his decision to close and how the wage hike negatively impacted his business. The panel was, to say the least, skeptical. The interview began with a hostile inquiry from Mika Brzezinski and only got...

    Washington (AP) - There is a growing trend in the arena of psychological pathology called Conflation Disorder (CD) in which a person conflates one object, or incident, or person, with another. An NBC anchorman, Brian Williams, recently confessed to conflating being on a helicopter in Iraq which was forced down by enemy fire, with riding a helicopter into that same area under perfectly safe conditions, sipping an Old Fashion and reading Voltaire. A Stanford University Professor, caught in a seedy motel with a coed, had actually conflated the voluptuous 19 year old blond with his 60 year old girthy wife,...

    It came as no surprise to me that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker dazzled the audience at the recent Iowa Freedom Summit. I have long touted the potential strength of Walker as a presidential candidate. He has an impressive record of actual governing accomplishments and has advanced conservative ideas in the face of fierce opposition from unions and liberal activists nationwide. He’s also demonstrated clear political skill in winning three elections in four years in a blue state. At a time of division among Republicans, it’s hard to think of another candidate who can excite conservatives as much as Walker without...

Some of this can be accomplished via new regulations administered by the Department of the Interior, but not entirely. They have also proposed additional restrictions on oil...

    Currently, according to the latest UN reports and official statements in recent days from both sides, the number of dead in the War in Ukraine now stands at over 5000. Of course, while this figure is the official toll, there are unfortunately many reasons for us to doubt its veracity. Sadly, the truth is that both sides have been significantly under reporting the number of soldiers lost, and due to this fact the number of dead in the conflict is probably several thousand more than what is being officially reported. But what motivation do both sides have for this sort...

As you'll see, just like the Oscar hopefuls, the SOTU writers appeared to be a panorama of people of pallor. Melber had been given special behind-the-scenes White House access this past Friday night to do his piece. As the cameras roamed around, a couple of presumably relatively junior African-American staffers could be seen. But the senior folks, those...
