  • Why Obama is Uneducated

    American Thinker ^ | 02/25/2014 | Selwyn Duke
    [SNIP] And a fact about Obama's upbringing is that it was defined by fiction. Clergyman Hosea Ballou said, "Education commences at the mother's knee...," but not only was Obama's mother's knee not around all the time, but what an odd knee it was. Her father had given her his first name, Stanley, because he'd wanted a boy, and Stanley Ann Dunham's personal development reflected that bizarre beginning. She attended Mercer Island High in Seattle, which had a wing known as "anarchy alley" that was infested with radical leftist teachers. It is said that Dunham "thrived" in that atmosphere, and she...

    The U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) on Friday released the initial results of an international survey of adult skills in literacy and mathematics, revealing that Americans rank 21st in “numeracy” and are tied for 15th in literacy among adults in 23 advanced economies. American adults also scored below the average in both numeracy and literacy for all respondents in all 23 advanced economies. Japan and Finland ranked first and second in both categories and Italy and Spain took the bottom two spots in both.

    Sorry, no link...just saw this reported on local news....one of the Miami stations just giddily told viewers their hero is "slashing his salary".... No mention in the story about federal debt soaring and huge numbers of lost jobs during the clown's tenure....nope. Just talk about the clown and his "solidarity" with federal workers. I wanted to hurl an ashtray at the screen.
  • Majority of Americans Are Upbeat About the Next Four Years [54% vs 65% after '08 election]

    Gallup ^ | 11/16/12
    A majority of Americans believe the country will be better off four years from now, while 41% say it will be worse. But this level of optimism is down considerably from four years ago, following President Barack Obama's first election victory, when 65% said the country would be better off in four years, and prior to his first inauguration, when 72% said the same.

    "Some UFOs are intelligently controlled extraterrestrial spacecraft, and this is the biggest story of the millennium." These words are not the rantings of a deranged individual looking for attention or a comfortable straitjacket. Stanton Friedman is a maverick of sorts. Employed for 14 years as a nuclear physicist for companies like General Electric, General Motors, Westinghouse and Aerojet General Nucleonics, he worked on highly classified programs involving nuclear aircraft, fission and fusion rockets. In 1958, UFOs caught his attention, and Friedman has since lectured about this subject at more than 700 colleges and professional groups in all 50 states and...

    http://disc.server.com/Indices/149495.html The difference between true education and vocational training has been cleverly blurred. Here are a few tips on how smart people can control other people. If any of this rings a bell - Well, then wake up! The first principle of people control is not to let them know you are controlling them. If people knew, this knowledge will breed resentment and possibly rebellion, which would then require brute force and terror, and old fashioned, expensive and not 100 % certain method of control. It is easier than you think to control people indirectly, to manipulate them into thinking...

    SEOUL, KOREA - SOUTH Korean teenagers see the United States as a greater threat to national security than North Korea, and a majority do not know that the North started the 1950-53 war, surveys published on Tuesday showed. The Ministry of Public Administration and Security surveyed 1,016 middle and high school students to mark Wednesday's 58th anniversary of the North's invasion, local newspapers reported. Fewer than half knew the war began in 1950 and just 48.7 per cent said the communist North started it. Others blamed Japan (13.5 per cent), the United States (13.4), Russia (11), China (3.4) and South...

    Bush should thank lazy, illiterate liberals! I was interested in how true is the idea that Democrats lose votes because people sympathetic to their views are less likely to vote, and due to high school dropouts not voting as much. Here's the breakdown of the percent who voted in the presidential election in 2000: Percent voting in 2000 Extremely liberal 60.2% Liberal 61.8 Slightly liberal 67.2 Moderates 59.9 Slightly conservative 70.2 Conservative 74.2 Extremely conservative 70.5 Look at the lazy liberals! God bless 'em! They are no more likely to vote than moderates. I was told that liberals are the...

    Vatican's Evolutionists By Rafael Brom Catholics should wonder why Vatican constanly issuing a stout defence of Charles Darwin's Fraudulent Communist Religion "Theory of Evolution". Now we have Vatican's high ranked Cardinal claiming that the Genesis description of how God created the universe and Darwin's theory of evolution were "perfectly compatible" if the Bible were read correctly. Looks like that 150 million martyrs who were tortured and killed by communists since 1917 in the name of "Theory of Evolution" did not read their Bible correctly. I am sure that Vatican's Evolutionists will one day declare St. Peter as the First Communist...

    PHOENIX — Republican officeholders critical of a federal judge's decision to fine the state heavily if it doesn't improve programs for students learning English are pointing a finger of blame at illegal immigration. The judge's order in a 13-year-old lawsuit would impose daily fines starting at $500,000 and rising to $2 million on the state if the Legislature fails to adequately fund programs for an estimated 160,000 children attending Arizona public schools. Arizona has become the busiest entry point on the southern border for illegal immigrants, and concerns related to illegal immigration are being increasingly voiced in connection with public-policy...

    New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) has long been rumored as desperately seeking the democratic nomination for president in 2008. And while many political observers fully expect the power hungry former First Lady to hit the campaign trail within only a few months of being re-elected as a US Senator in 2006, US News & World report claims to have a confirmation of sorts. From USNews.Com's Washington Whispers: Hillary's in… You don't have to take it from us about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton 's desire to run for president. Her brothers, Hugh and Tony Rodham, say it's true. Friends...

Jasper Counting Vladimir Putin as an ally against terrorism ignores his career in the murderous KGB/FSB and his ongoing support for terrorist regimes and organizations. ‘‘Lena Goncharuk, aged 38, said that she was the only one to survive out of a group of six who were ordered out of the cellar where they had been hiding and shot at point blank range. Resting in her hospital bed, her voice barely rising above a whisper, she said she had survived only by pretending to be dead." So reported Paul Wood from the Chechen border...

    As the GOP wrapped up Day Two of its confab last night, the hate-and- anarchy crowd began to get uppity, with protesters resisting and assualting cops. Hundreds were arrested. As well they have should been. As of early last night, it was unclear where all this would lead. But even by Monday, things had already gotten bloody. A mob of lowlifes pummeled one cop at the end of a protest by the so-called Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign — a protest that, inexplicably, was allowed to take place despite a lack of proper permits. The officer, who was hospitalized...

That may be the case, but I can assure you that there will be no further campaign contributions from this household, and although I could never...

    Now that John Kerry has uttered the f-word in a Rolling Stone interview, and the Federal Communications Commission has said just about any language can pass muster on broadcast TV and radio, the with-it crowd is instructing the rest of us to calm down and go with the flow. Why, everyone curses like a drunken sailor these days, according to sociology-adoring newspaper articles I've read. And anyone who makes a fuss about it, some of these articles informed me, just doesn't get it that conventions of the anti-obscenity sort have no inherent value anyway. Why, who gives a bleep if...

    AISH ^ | N/A | by Rabbi Nechemia Coopersmith
    If there is an absolute standard of morality, then there must be a God. Disagree? Consider the alternative. God's existence has direct bearing on how we view morality. As Dostoyevsky so famously put it, "Without God, everything is permitted."At first glance, this statement may not make sense. Everything is permitted? Can't there be a morality without an infinite God?Perhaps some of the confusion is due to a murky definition of morality we owe to moral relativism. Moral relativism maintains that there is no objective standard of right and wrong existing separate and independent from humanity. The creation of moral...

The articles refer to the "weight" of the girder to be put in place and, even the AP article refers to the weight of the Space Station. However, this shows how uneducated the media really is: A quote from CNN-AP article: The 14-ton girder, an aluminum beam crammed with wiring and loaded with a rail cart and radiators, increased the mass of the entire space station to almost 200 tons....
