California – Case in Point for Liberal Stupidity

California with its mere 140 miles of border with Mexico and 840 miles of coastline has more than 30 million people per year crossing from Mexico into its lands at The San Ysidro port of entry alone according to government statistics and Huffpost. Their article was written in 2012 and based on figures from 2003  forward.  Of the 1.8 million Mexicans whom ICE deported back to their native country since 2003, San Ysidro has seen 360,172 – nearly 20 percent of the total – pass through its gates. Tijuana also has received through the San Ysidro port of entry and its smaller … Continue reading

Feminism : Before And After

FEMINISM OR, How to never ever be seen as attractive to men again…then blame them for everything, including being alone.

What Is Really Known About Organizations Who Guide Education Changes

  Have you ever noticed how information can lead you down strange paths? Or, how companies that appear to be important members of the liberalist agenda manage to stealthily go about their objectives without making waves or being highlighted in media? Case in point: A decision to research universities where liberal students demand lists of bizarre things, or where they are falling into the liberalist trap laid to curtail free speech or how they have become so left-leaning over the years… …Led me to Association of American Colleges & Universities which bills itself as “A Voice and a force for … Continue reading

What A Shocker

well, not really. In the top fifteen states where Millennials still live with Mommy and Daddy, eleven of them are LIBERAL states! Yep, keep giving out those trophies for participation and allowing little Johnnie to squat to pee in the girl’s crapper. Liberalism and PCism is killing America. “Our Country won’t go on forever, if we stay soft as we are now. There won’t be any AMERICA because some foreign soldiery will invade us and take our women and breed a hardier race!” – Lt. Gen. Lewis B. “Chesty” Puller, USMC More at: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-20/which-states-do-most-millennials-live-their-parents

Ways Government Can Help Communities Get Back To Work

It isn’t often we can talk about EPA helping a community rather than finding ways to stymie and wrap them up in regulations and rules. BUT here is one that is worth a great deal toward moving unemployed and young people forward into an industry that really needs to be considered.   How many times have we heard of disasters where hazmat cleanup and workers were involved? Certainly more every day as places across the country meet different scenarios. Where do these workers come from? How do they get trained? Is it an industry that could provide good paying jobs … Continue reading

Another Obama Regime Screw-Up That’ll Cost You & Me Big Bucks

Be thankful for Judicial Watch!  Here’s a timely report, coming as it does during the debate over government-managed health care.  You probably won’t be surprised to learn that the student loan program, federalized by the Obama Regime, is upside-down financially.  You may, however, be surprised when you find out that King Putt’s minions made a “coding error” that masks the failure of a majority of borrowers to keep their loan repayments current, and conceals the true magnitude of the multi-billion dollar loss now confronting American taxpayers.  Y’see, the Puttster could mask information that might damage HIM … but he deliberately … Continue reading

Student Loan Defaults – Here Is The Reality

Surging Student Loan Defaults Spark New Fear Of Potential Taxpayer-Funded Bailout – Cavuto   In 2015 Obama pushed hard for tuition free community colleges and set up an advisory board to  push the efforts of America’s College Promise plan that would make two years of community college free nationally. He even doubled down in his version of the 2017 federal budget.  In his budget, the federal government was to have would covered 75% of the cost of tuition for two years, approximately $3,800 per student on average. The remaining 25% was to have been covered by states that chose to … Continue reading

Snowflake Watch

  Citizens have 911. Employees have the EEOC. Distressed sailors have the Coast Guard. But what do America’s college students have? Where can they turn when they find themselves outside campus “safe spaces” and suffering a “microaggression”? Fortunately, the University of Arizona has an answer. It recently distributed a 20-page booklet suggesting to faculty that when a student is victimized by a microaggression the appropriate response should be saying “ouch.” And the correct response for the offender should be saying “oops,” according to the guide. “If a student feels hurt or offended by another student’s comment, the hurt student can … Continue reading

The Rise of the Daycare Generation

This is a rather long dissertation, if that’s the right word, but it leads to the crux of the issues being faced by today’s SJW snowflakes and mindless liberals. I listened to it while going about my kitchen business and I urge you to do the same. There’s nothing to look at so just hit play, turn it up, listen and absorb what this man says. He’s not a “genius”, so he claims, but he speaks the truth and nails where society when wrong. He also explains why these kids are so messed-up, (and he’s right, it’s not really their … Continue reading

Re The Story About “Racist” Reading Tests For Teachers In Government Schools ….

…. Allow me to offer two recent articles that reflect the official attitude of many in the education establishment, now that it is ruled by “progressives”.  First, from the Heritage Daily Signal of 2 July 2011: NEA Convention Reminds Us: It’s About Union Power, Not Children   (by Lindsey Burke) It’s hard to forget former National Education Association (NEA) General Counsel Bob Chanin’s farewell address during the 2009 NEA national convention. “It is not because we care about children; and it is not because we have a vision of a great public school for every child,” Chanin boasted. “The NEA and … Continue reading

New York About to Eliminate Test Meant to See if Teachers Can Read… because RAAAACISM!

By Warner Todd Huston March 13, 2017 There would have been a day when a story saying that teachers were about to be excused from requirements that they be able to read just to avoid charges of racism would have been an entry in an issue of the National Lampoon or even on TheOnion.com. But today, in this day of truly insane liberalism, the idea that liberals don’t care if teachers can read just to avoid charges of racism in hiring is… well, sadly, it’s not even a little surprising. New York’s Board of Regents is expected to adopt the … Continue reading

Life At University And In The Bureaucracy: The Department Of Nice

Prolly the best take-down of the modern American university environment, and of federal bureaucracies, that I have ever read.  Courtesy of TheZMan blog, 9 March 2017.  Enjoy! The Department of Nice The other day, I was at the Department of Nice. It is in the Imperial Capital area and while it is not a very pleasant commute, once you are there, it is very nice. It’s still technically winter here, but the weather was very mild, in the 60’s with a gentle breeze. Many of the nice people, who work in the Department of Nice, took advantage of the nice … Continue reading

Cultural Marxism and the Red International Women’s Day

From Canada Free Press Global civic demonstrations as practiced by young and compass-less anarchist hordes have become the latest expression of cultural Marxism, an “unseen plague which corrupted America” and now threatens the rest of the western world, including small, formerly communist countries that allegedly overcame Soviet satellite status.  To understand why I use the term “allegedly,” you must understand the nostalgia of older generations, for the good ole simple days of communism, the longing for the days when they were dependent on the meager rations doled out to them monthly by the communist party apparatchiks in order to keep … Continue reading

Skewed College Thinking -Time For Complete Overhaul of Higher Education

  College Launches Study Group About ‘Depravity of Whiteness’ DailyWire by Hank Berrien March 2, 2017 St. John’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico, must think white men are terrible racists and sexists, because the college initiated a “study group” for “those who most often exhibit racist and sexist behavior—white males.” As Campus Reform reports, a campus-wide email was sent to all students and faculty, urging whites explicitly to attend four sessions on privilege so they can “begin to be self-critical.” The email started by accusing white men of the usual litany of evils, plus ripping the capitalist system: “We will … Continue reading

The Black American Community Should Be Excited By The Latest Trump Executive Order

  For the many Black Americans who supported Trump, the latest executive order should be vindication for their choice for president and encouragement that Trump was not like past politicians simply paying “lip service” to get votes. In this executive order, he has made obvious his determination to fulfill his promises to leaders in the Black American communities and young Black students whom he feels deserve the right to reach their full potential through expanded educational opportunities. NBC Exclusive March 1st by Lauren Victoria Burke “Exclusive: Omarosa Manigault on Trump’s Executive Order on HBCUs”. Over 60 HBCU Presidents this week … Continue reading

Betsy DeVos: One Of Us? Or Not?

Since President Trump announced his nomination of BetsyDeVos as Secretary of Education, many on the right have spoken out about DeVos’ long-range intentions for America’s government school system.  True, DeVos has spoken loudly over the years about school choice, to help parents sidestep underperforming, union-agenda-driven schools.  But DeVos is also on record as a supporter of comprehensive federal standards for public pre-college education.  She carefully avoided use of the term “Common Core” during the hearing process, but it’s known that DeVos (with Trump’s apparent agreement) will push for some form of national intervention, disguised with a less-toxic label. Now we … Continue reading

We live in a wondrous time in which the strong is weak because of his moral scruples and the weak grows strong because of his audacity. • Otto von Bismarck And this, boys and girls, is why the democrats prevail so much and so often
