“How a teachers’ rally made me anti-education”

This essay echoes perfectly the same cerebral conflict I fight with myself as an educator, as a parent, as a taxpayer, as a product of the public school system, and as a libertarian-inclined thinker with common sense. Despite the obvious conflict of interest, I side with the author.

In case you missed it: Super Secret War #4 aka Non-War #2

US Intensifies a Secret Campaign of Yemen Airstrikes

Gee, what happened to the rabid, anti-war Left?  I guess war is only an outrage if George W. Bush / a Republican starts it.

Stupid pinkos

“When you have a government that is anti-business, you hunker-down, shut-down, and scale back.”

That brief quote alone from “Fat Cat” CEO of a small furniture business in Michigan sums up the entire sad state of our economy under Comrade Obama.

“George Soros Buys 100 NPR ‘Reporters'”

c&p from Sweetness & Light:

We almost missed these joyous tidings, buried as they were in the ‘Media & Advertising’ section of the New York Times:

With Grant, NPR to Step Up State Government Reporting

With Grant, NPR to Step Up State Government Reporting

By ELIZABETH JENSEN
October 17, 2010

NPR has received a $1.8 million grant from the Open Society Foundations to begin a project called Impact of Government that is intended to add at least 100 journalists at NPR member radio stations in all 50 states over the next three years.

The reporters, editors and analysts will cover state governments and how their actions affect people.

And you know they will be completely objective. But isn’t it nice to see the liver spotted hand of Mr. Soros reaching down to the state level. This is what he must have meant when he said years ago that he was ‘getting out of politics.’

The project “creates capacity for local stations to hire reporters and to cover issues that matter that other places aren’t doing,” said Vivian Schiller [sic], NPR’s president and chief executive. “Everything that we’re doing as relates to member stations comes down to two things: building local news capacity and making sure the content we create is available to all people across all platforms.”

Ms. Schiller said the journalists would not be part of typical statehouse coverage, but instead would work on enterprise journalism that looks at how state government decisions play out over years, and extend beyond a single state’s borders.

Meaning that they will skip all the boring ‘nuts and bolts’ stuff and go straight to the propaganda.

The program, one of a number of new public media reporting projects meant to counter some of the cutbacks in profit-making journalism, will begin with an eight-state pilot phase in March 2011. Eventually, NPR and local stations hope to raise about $17 million to expand the program, and $18 million to $19 million annually to sustain it, said Ron Schiller [sic], president of the NPR Foundation and NPR’s senior vice president for development (and no relation to Ms. Schiller.)

In other words, NPR plans to supplement these propagandists with taxpayer money. (By the way, look at how many ‘schillers’ there are at NPR. Talk about ‘truth in labeling.’)

And speaking of Juan Williams: What makes this so crazy — and so sad — is that liberals are the open-minded ones, the ones who cherish the free exchange of ideas, the smart ones. And if you don’t believe me, just ask any liberal, who will be glad to tell you how smart and open-minded he or she is. But these are the kind of people who believe in “free speech” only as long as they agree with you.

Obama Admin admits to Ronald McDonald that ObamaCare sucks.

Special treatment to one of the biggest corporations in America because the Obama Administration knows ObamaCare would be devastating to millions of McDonalds employees.  Who’s looking out for you?

McDonalds & 29 other firms get ObamaCare exemptions.
