Education Change?

In Uncategorized on September 27, 2009 at 10:18 pm

“Our school calendar is based upon the agrarian economy and not too many of our kids are working the fields today,” said Education Secretary Arne Duncan. President Obama is considering extending the school year. Yes we could use some improvements in our education system, but just extending the amount of time students spend there will not help one student. We have to improve the quality.

The federal government and more over the Obama Administration thinks it can always use the feds to improve quality. Just the like experiment with our Health Care System, Medicare, Military, Taxes, Social Security, Torte Reform, Congressional Oversite, Banks, Auto Manufacturing, The Fed, Insurance reform, Housing markets, and over 32 CZARS. Have you seen any improvement?

President Obama keeps putting more on his plate and hasn’t fixed a single thing. At the rate he is going everything that the Goverment does should be screwed up by the end of his first year in office.

School Teachers don’t need more time, they need to use the time they have better. But President Obama refuses to let parents choose which school their own children will attend. Are his children in Public school? No? Why not? Because he can afford the choice. If he really wants to raise the level of education, lets start with testing the teachers. Let parents choose where their school dollars are going by selecting their own schools. Let schools compete. Not get more federal dollars for more wasted time.

Summer is a right of passage. Reading, relaxing, learning how to imagine, vacations and outdoor recreation. Yet the president thinks he knows best. As you know he visited all 52 states!

The administration should finish one task before they start another!

Even President Obama can get one right once in a while!

Presidential Up Roar over Obama’s School Speech.

Could you believe all the noise about the President of the United States of America speaking to school children. Everyone had an opinion as to if it was a good idea or bad. This is where the noise stops, and the thought process begins.
Why the fear?

Over the last Sixty years schools have been indoctrinating us, our children, and our future towards a new world view. The same view that President Barack Obama holds today. America is Cocky, America hasn’t been nice and my favorite, “We’re the greatest country in the world, now help me (President Obama) change it”.

I think the fear of President Obama speaking wasn’t that he might inspire children to want to study hard. But that he would expose his real beliefs. Those same beliefs that are in those current history books. Those same current school text books that our teachers used when they were students. (This explains) Why many teachers can’t pass the same tests that they are handing out. Their Unions are fighting to not allow testing of working teachers. Not all of them have been (enlightened). But lets face it. Ask a child on the street or 75 % of Harvard Universities freshman class who signed the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and you will get a blank look. If they know that these are different documents at all.  Or better yet find a teacher that doesn’t have socialist tendencies!

With the arrival of our first Black President, which is still to come. Unfortunately for President Obama he is fact mulatto, which happily our society has learned to not judge by the color of a person’s skin. This occasion should have been a history lesson about slavery and oppression, over come in our own history and the workings of our government. Instead the President took the time to inspire our children with stories of little Jazmin, Andoni and Shantell. Not to mention giving parents the privilege of explaining cancer and Aids to our younger children.

Ask any child the basic questions of, Who is on a DIME? Why is he there? What war did he lead us in? Who is on the Five Hundred Dollar Bill? Or whats on the back of the penny? The answers are all at http://www.WhosOnMyMoney.com. The real point here is our history isn’t being taught. Students don’t understand what all the words are to the Star Spangled Banner, or who wrote it. Why was Francis watching a battle instead of helping fight? Great Stories that could have inspired generations.

So I would like to thank President Obama for his desire to bring to light our need to fix our schools and the books the students are taught with. He in one single simple unintended speech showed how many problems we need to fix.

I know that wasn’t his intention. But even President Obama can get one right once in a while.

Israel and Palestinian leaders unique moment!

In Uncategorized on September 26, 2009 at 9:35 pm

Rahm Emanuel said Israeli and Palestinian leaders must take advantage of a “unique moment” for making peace.
Once again we seem to view President Obama with some sort of divine powers. Every President seems to have wanted a “unique moment”. Israeli or the Jews have been fighting for a peace in the region for the last 2300 years. Since the inception of Israel there has only been peaceful times never really a peace. So Obama is going to find it? Wow, how arrogant is this administration? Have they not noticed Iran’s build up or is it so easy to ignore if we don’t talk about it? Well, IRAN is arming and has promised to “remove Israel from the region”. I don’t think they mean to send them to the US. If they were promised the right to leave, would President Obama give them health care?
Rahm Emanuel has ties to Israel and has been remarkably quite on the situation. Lets hope someone speaks up before it’s totally out of hand. As people welcomed Netanyahu home he has made a huge hit with Israelis, who pretty much consider Obama a bad joke.

IRAN Newest Uranium Facility.

In Uncategorized on September 25, 2009 at 6:05 pm

President Obama and the leaders of France and Britain blasted Iran’s construction of a previously unacknowledged uranium enrichment facility and demanded Friday that Tehran immediately fulfill its obligations under international law or risk the imposition of harsh new sanctions. Surely this just terrified Iran, and it’s leaders. “Iran is breaking rules that all nations must follow,” Obama said, detailing how the facility near Qom had been under construction for years without being disclosed, as required, to the International Atomic Energy Agency. “International law is not an empty promise.” President Obama’s teleprompter writer must be on holiday, because this is so basic a response. When will someone is the state department explain to the president what a dangerous world he is living in. Iran knows that the Obama administration won’t do anything. In an early indication of Iran’s reaction, President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad warned Western officials against pressing their case about the new enrichment plan during the upcoming talks. They are just laughing at us. Along with the other dictators who attended the United Nations meeting. What a Joke and President Obama makes us look like a bigger joke pretending the U.N has any power. Israel will be on her own. Lets hope that the novice president doesn’t cost our future while he learns his job. Jimmy Carter must be overjoyed to have Iran back on the front burner. I’m sure President Carter will just call the Iranians racist.

Humana and the 1st Amendment

This is the Letter that Congress and the Obama Administration believe they need to stop from being read.  Why?  What next, banning books?

With the media reporting daily on Congress’ and President Obama’s efforts to enact meaningful health reforms this year, many Humana Medicare Advantage (MA) members are contacting us with questions. Members just like you want to know what these reforms might mean for their Medicare health plan and how they can get involved to help protect Medicare Advantage.


We are working diligently to ensure that our nation’s leaders understand how proposed reforms might affect you. At the same;time, we have created the Partner program to keep you informed about proposed Medicare changes and help you get involved so your voice is heard in Washington. Your opinions matter to us, to others on Medicare, and to your elected officials. There are two things you can do now to help show Congress the importance of Medicare Advantage:


• Opt into the Partner program. Becoming a Partner is easy. Just complete the accompanying, postage-paid form and follow the instructions to fold and mail it back. As a Humana Partner, you will join more than 50,000
Humana Medicare Advantage members who are receiving information about this issue and learning how to get involved to protect your Medicare health plan coverage.


• Let your Members of Congress know why Medicare Advantage is important to you. Congress is considering significant cuts to Medicare Advantage now, and your Members of Congress will want to know why this program is valuable to you because these cuts could mean higher costs and benefit reductions to many on Medicare Advantage.


We’ve made it easy for you to have your voice heard.

Why would the administration feel the need to stop this letter?

“It is wholly unacceptable for insurance companies to mislead seniors regarding any subject — particularly on a subject as important to them, and to the nation, as health care reform,” Baucus said Monday, disclosing the HHS investigation. What part of that letter was unacceptable?  The contact your congress part?

“As we continue our research into this issue, we are instructing you to immediately discontinue all such mailings to beneficiaries and to remove any related materials directed to Medicare enrollees from your Web sites,” said a notice from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid.

Teresa DeCaro, an agency official, sent the notice to all companies that sell private Medicare coverage and stand-alone drug plans to seniors.

Are they afraid of an open dialog? Do insurance companies not have 1st Amendment rights? Does the administration feel they have the right to stop free speech? Does congress feel they have the ability to stop free speech?

Before my Insurance company is put out of business and I am forced to pay for insurance for others who choose not to pay for their own policies I wish to see this answered. Since there is no torte reform maybe this should be answered in court.

Most of the web sites that you try to find this letter are blocked, down, or under cyber attack. Why?

What do you think?

Will Israel attack the Iranian nuclear facilities?

Neville Chamberlain - Prime Minister of the UK...

Image via Wikipedia

“We regard the agreement signed last night and the Anglo-German Naval Agreement as symbolic of the desire of our two peoples never to go to war with one another again”.
“My good friends this is the second time in our history that there has come back from Germany to Downing Street peace with honor. I believe it is peace in our time.” 1938 Neville Chamberlain.
Months later Hitler’s troops had invaded Poland.  Chamberlain and others had spent years negotiating with Hitler in order to prevent another war in Europe, two decades after the Great War in which an entire generation of young men had been wiped out. Negotiations with Hitler had included surrendering the sovereign rights of Czechoslovakia and standing by as Hitler’s troops took Austria. By 1939, Hitler desired war and any further attempts to negotiate peace were doomed to failure. The Nazis then staged a fake attack on a German radio outpost along the German-Polish border and used that as an excuse for invasion. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain gave this speech to the House of Commons on September 1, 1939

That was 70 years ago.

Today!

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev says Israeli officials have assured him that they are not planning a military strike on Iran.  President Medvedev also confirmed that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a secret visit to Moscow this month that included a meeting with the Russian president.
In a transcript of the interview released by the Kremlin, Medvedev hedges on the question of whether Russia would support Iran if it were attacked by Israel.

Again history is set to repeat itself?  So how long will Israel allow Iran to threaten it’s right to exist?  When will Iran succeed in building a working Nuclear Weapon? Anyone else have any thoughts?


Are you happy with President Obama?

Lord North & the American Tea Party!

In Uncategorized on September 20, 2009 at 2:01 am

When Lord North went to visit King George to explain that the Loyal Subjects where having a bit of a issue with the taxes do you think they just thought it would blow over? It’s believed that the King couldn’t understand why his subjects would be upset for all the services he had provided. Now true enough the King did provide the service of security to the people. Only then to place his own Henchmen in charge of every position of government. Surely Lord North believed he had a problem, but his advisers such as the Earl of Sandwich just played parlor games. Don’t worry they said, this will work it’s self out. By the time they got the message even the loyal British subjects hated the King for all that he had spent. Many options were tried on those who had the tea party but the tea party participants would not heed. They kept on demanding their rights, until they had overthrown their King and his government.

Those who don’t know their history are doomed to repeat it!

Anyone in Washington enjoying a Sandwich?
