    NBC MIAMI ^ | 1/10/14 | By Brian Hamacher and Claudia DoCampo
    Hundreds of Miami-Dade bus drivers played hooky from work Friday in an apparent strike over wages and benefits, making several students late and leaving some stranded at bus stops. Some 242 out of 1,300 bus drivers didn't show up for work Friday, leading to problems at 80 schools... The bus drivers were asking for a 17 percent increase in their health benefits for this year. "Insurance keeps going up, union keeps going up, everything's going up, and we're not getting no raise," said bus driver Terry Barrett.

    Surprisingly - even shockingly - ignorant. Reuters: Most uninsured adult Americans lack basic knowledge about President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law and haven't visited their online insurance marketplace because they think health insurance is unaffordable, according to a survey released on Thursday.The survey from Enroll America, a non-profit healthcare enrollment coalition, found that 68 percent of uninsured adults had not yet logged onto their online exchanges.A similar number, 69 percent of the uninsured, still lacked knowledge about tax subsidies and other financial help designed to make the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, affordable for many, the survey...
  • Barack Obama, Low Information President

    AMERICAN THINKER ^ | November 14, 2013 | Jonathon Moseley
    President Barack Obama is the perfect "Low Information President." He is not really interested very much in doing his job. He doesn't know anything going on in his own administration. He is always the last to know. He learns important developments only when he reads about it in the newspaper, apparently after first reading the sports section. But Obama is keenly interested in basketball. He has turned his NCAA championship "brackets" predictions chart into a presidential event. He is into music, movies, culture. Obama is the "Pop Culture President." In fact, Obama is a "Bystander President" like Chauncy Gardiner in...

    Why I’m Angry that Pedro Espinoza Murdered Jamiel Shaw, Jr. by The Honorable Brother X Why am I angry? Because Pedro Espinoza robbed us African Americans of a great opportunity to stick it to the white man, that’s why! I just recently read about him killing a young African American in the Los-Angeles area in 2008: “Jamiel Shaw Jr., 17, a black youth, was shot in the head and back at 2150 Fifth Ave. in Arlington Heights at about 8:40 p.m. on Sunday, March 2. According to police, Jamiel was walking home when(one) Latino(man) jumped out of a white car...

    Foxx, who will receive the MTV Generation Award tonight, is wearing a shirt featuring the late Trayvon Martin's face on the red carpet. As we all know, Martin died last year after getting into an altercation with George Zimmerman, who became suspicious of the teenager's hoodie. The whole story was tragic on so many levels, but Foxx showed his support for the young man wh died before his time at tonight's show. "As a comedian, Academy award-winning actor and Grammy award-winning artist, Jamie Foxx is a triple threat superstar unlike any we've seen in a long time," Stephen Friedman, MTV...
  • Low Information Voters? How about our Low Information President?

    There is a real possibility, a strong likelihood, that President Obama knows nothing of the nuts and bolts, the details and realities of the positions he promotes. He rides the Starship Air Force One, thrills adolescent crowds and frames himself with federal employees while orating vapid clichés dowsed in demagoguery. He drives the fancy car but needs help filling it with gas and couldn't point to the air filter if you popped the hood. Imagery sans leadership. Celebrity is the accomplishment here, and adoration is the metric. Polls demonstrate people approve more of him and less of his execution of...

    Rush Limbaugh said that for the first time he was ashamed of his country and his words made the top Drudge headline and generated a ton of comments from talking heads in Washington. 'Ashamed' isn't the word I'd use but I share Limbaugh's frustration with the endless lies told by members of both parties so that nothing ever changes but I believe he's being disingenuous. We've never been fooled by the lies the politicians throw at us. Rush is just too polite to say is that he's confounded by the stupidity of the American people who do fall for them....

    Low information voters have the most fun. They must, since they are the majority and the majority rules. Therefore, what interests them is the most important. One small step for FLOTUS, a giant leap for humankind. Swoon, ye peasants, swoon! Bangs are in and that's important. Ipse dixit. One small step for FLOTUS, a giant leap for humankind.

    Exclusive: Robert Ringer seeks ways to get through to the redistribution-minded While driving into D.C. last week, I was listening to Rush Limbaugh expound on an important issue that I don’t believe many pro-liberty people give much thought to. He said that “low-information” voters present a serious problem because there is no way to reach people who are uninformed. Worse, most of these people don’t like conservatives or libertarians. No doubt about it, Rush has zeroed in on the crux of the problem when it comes to the decline and fall of the American Empire. How in the world do...

    The conventional wisdom, which I share, is that Barack Obama will win this election, perhaps by a healthy margin. But Democrats are nervous wrecks; they're having nightmares that defeat will be snatched from the jaws of victory. To add to their misery (and guard against complacency), here's how that horror film could play out: In the end, the problem was the LIVs. That's short for "low-information voters," the three fifths of the electorate that show up once every four years to vote for president but mostly hate politics. These are the 75 million folks who didn't vote in the primaries....
