This teacher goes to Youtube to express her disappointment with today’s educational system. This is one of the good ones folks and it’s obvious that our public teaching system run by bureaucrats and union thugs is failing…horribly.
And where is Obama? Where is the great leader who was supposed to unite and fix this country’s misguided ways after Bush left office? He’s off pandering to union bosses treating the teacher’s as a voting block for up-coming elections. He’s done absolutely nothing to help the students or teachers solve the problem. This is the sad reality that is the Democrat party. They talk big about supporting education but other than throwing money at the problem, they do very little to solve anything.
Benghazi — still a problem.
Well, it will/would certainly be a tough road after all this!
Funny, I still hear liberals ask, “what’s the big deal?”
Quantitative Easing: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
This is the third and last article in a short series on America’s loss of prosperity and the things that Obama and the liberal progressives are doing that are ultimately bringing this loss of prosperity to pass. Quantitative easing, the Fed’s euphemism for simply creating additional money out of thin air, is playing a substantial role in this. It’s important to understand what quantitative easing ultimately does…. it buys you time.
Quantitative easing doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing. If you are facing an economic crisis and by using quantitative easing you can postpone that crisis and subsequently avoid it by fixing the fundamental elements that are the cause of that crisis, then quantitative easing is actually a good thing. Unfortunately that is not what is happening in America right now.
As I mentioned in my last article “destroying the foundation of America’s prosperity,” the fundamental underlying cause of the economic crisis and the loss of prosperity to come is liberal progressive ideology and the welfare nanny state that it has created. What liberal progressive ideology has done is take half the population and punish/disincentivized it from working and pursuing success through extreme inequality in income taxes with an aggressive “progressive” tax stratification. It has taken the other half of the population and bathed it in rewards to not work at all and to not even take the first step towards realizing their potential. With the economy being people working (doing and creating things of value) the combined effects of these policies is that liberal progressive ideology is destroying the economy from both directions.
With this being the fundamental cause of the economic crisis to come, the answer is simply to use the time given by quantitative easing to fix that fundamental cause…to replace the inequality in income taxes with a flat tax that removes all tax breaks and favoritism; and, to replace the disastrous system of social welfare entitlements (that ultimately destroys the very people it’s intended to help) with an actual bare bones safety net. If we were utilizing the time given to us by quantitative easing to implement these critical reforms then quantitative easing would actually be a good thing.
Instead, with Obama and the liberal progressives in power, they are seeking to expand these extremely foolish policies. In the current environment, quantitative easing is simply an enabler of this foolishness. By now we should be feeling significant amounts of negative feedback on the economy because of these liberal progressive policies but we are not because it is being papered over with billions of dollars per day of quantitative easing and additional federal government borrowing. We will still feel these negative economic effects but, instead of experiencing it gradually, it is being stored up for the future where it will be unleashed with much more devastating cumulative effect.
Ben Bernanke should be smart enough to know that, with Barrack Obama and the liberal progressives in charge of the federal government, the additional time gained from his quantitative easing is going to be wasted on perpetuating this foolishness instead of fixing it. It would be better for us as a nation to be feeling the economic pain and negative feedback that comes from undermining the economy (and from flat out ignoring common sense) rather than concealing it with quantitative easing, which only leads to far worse economic pain in the future. At least by experiencing some of the economic pain today it might wake up the majority of the American populous to the fact that liberal progressive ideology and the welfare nanny state does not work. Mr. Bernanke, your legacy will not be defined by the relative calm of today. It will be defined by the strife and economic devastation that is to come and by the fact that you will have played a significant contributory role in creating it.
Pretty spot on.
Jon Stewart Destroys Obama Over IRS Scandal & Lack Of ‘Managerial Competence’
Ha, he got close to being an actual journalist there.
Everyone keeps commenting how Stewart is bashing Obama over these scandals, but no one seems to realize that he really is still calling conservatives ‘tinfoil hatted conspiracy theorists’ and blaming the Democrats for actually making us look legit.
He’s not bashing Obama, he’s really saying, “hey, we had a good thing going here making the conservatives look like whack-jobs on these issues and now you’re fumbling the ball and making them look pertinent!”
Jon Stewart is a liberal. His interests lie with this President.
The hubris of this President is astounding. Today, he scheduled a press conference with the Turkish Prime Minister in the Rose Garden, but arrived 47 minutes late, leaving members of the press waiting in the rain.
Upon his arrival, Obama had Marines hold umbrellas over his head and over the Turkish Prime Minister.
You just can’t make this shit up anymore…
Today, the Obama administration released 100 pages of emails related to the Benghazi terror attack and the subsequent dishonest talking points that UN Ambassador Susan Rice used on 5 different Sunday talk shows. As you’ll recall, Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, and President Obama himself all blamed a YouTube video for the deadly attack.
The emails prove that the State Department had a heavy hand in changing the talking points and removing all references to terrorism. They also show that former CIA Director David Petraeus was quite unhappy with how butchered the truth was.
One thing is conspicuously absent from these emails, however. Any references to a YouTube video.
You can look for yourself and see.
As I noted earlier, the other thing that’s noticeably missing here is any email from the first three days after the attack. The emails start on September 14, but the attack happened on September 11.
Don’t forget, a man is currently in jail over this administration’s claim about the YouTube video. In the early days after the attack, he was an easy scapegoat for the attack, and Hillary Clinton actually told the families of victims that she would see to it he was held accountable. He was nabbed in the middle of the night by Federal agents on a trumped up parole violation.
