Poorly educated and lied to, Blacks at UCLA call correcting their grammar and punctuation racist!

The Coach Is Right ^ | February 10, 2014 | Kevin “Coach” Collins

It’s hard to figure out what to make of the people in this story.

Should these people be laughed at or pitied?
Recently a group of 25 self-described “Students of Color” held a sit-in to support poor English writing skills. They whined about the “racism” of being offered constructive criticism of their lack of grammar, spelling and punctuation abilities.  As products of dysfunctional government schools, many if not all of them have little or no writing skill. Many of them don’t know they have no writing skills. They have been lied to and had their heads patted so often by paternalistic liberals they can no longer recognize the truth about their shortcomings. We can expect little else from students who have never been dealt with honestly. Apparently the poorly educated students who registered for this course expected more lies and head pats rather than actual instruction.

Claiming to be, “aggrieved minority students,” these spoiled brats proved they haven’t enough brains to realize the value of authentic education.

I explained that my dogs are Democrats!

CBS News ^ | 02/11/2014 | Fantum

This morning I went to sign my dogs up for Obamacare. At first the lady refused saying "Dogs are not eligible for Obamacare." I explained to her that my dogs are Democrats, of mixed race, lazy, unemployed, can't speak English, and they have no clue as to who their daddy's are... Also, they expect me to feed them and provide them with housing and medical care. So she looked in her policy book to see what it takes to qualify for Obamacare. My dogs get their first Obamacare check-ups next Monday.

Holder wants felons to vote!

Legal Insurrection ^ | 2-11-2014 | William A. Jacobson

I wonder who he thinks they will vote for? Let me think about that a while, ahem, tough call.
Eric Holder wants millions of convicted felons to vote, urging states to change existing laws. Holder Urges States to Repeal Bans on Felons’ Voting:
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on Tuesday urged states to repeal laws that prohibit felons from voting, a move that would restore the right to vote to millions of people. The call was mostly symbolic — Mr. Holder has no authority to enact these changes himself — but it marked the attorney general’s latest effort to eliminate laws that he says disproportionately keep minorities from the polls. “It is unwise, it is unjust, and it is not in keeping with our democratic values,” Mr. Holder said at civil rights conference at Georgetown University. These laws deserve to be not only reconsidered, but repealed.” African-Americans represent more than a third of the estimated 5.8 million people who are prohibited from voting, according to the Sentencing Project, a research group that favors more liberal sentencing policies. And in Florida, Kentucky, and Virginia, more than one in five African-Americans has lost the right to vote.

There may be a more severe impact on minority communities, but that’s a function of the convictions, not the voting laws. Perhaps there should be a waiting period, or lifetime exclusions only for certain levels of criminal convictions.
Regardless, I think it’s probably going nowhere.

Tebow Vs. Sam: A Tale of Two Draft Picks

NewsBusters.org ^ | February 11, 2014 | Matthew Philbin

Feel that? Something “historic” and “important” just happened. It might even be a “teachable moment,” and it’s certainly therapeutic. Why, liberals will be able to like their country just little bit more. Come on people, feel the love!

A potential fourth round NFL draft pick has declared is “own truth,” and come out as gay. Having taken the “courageous” step of joining society’s most trendy and celebrated grievance group, Missouri defensive end Michael Sam is now basking in the media adulation. ESPN’s Chris Connelly stressed to Sam, “You could become the first openly gay player in the NFL, that’s a momentous thing.” And Connelly sounded momentous just saying it. To Sam’s contention that’s he’s “a football player,” Connelly, corrected him: “You’re a football player responsible for a landmark moment within American sports right now.” One Jeff Pearlman gently approached the issue in a Sports Illustrated blog post cleverly titled, “I want Tim Tebow to Fail.” He wanted him to fail “because a famous Tim Tebow is a dangerous Tim Tebow.” Tebow, you see, “scares me, and – judging from his father’s website, his upcoming Super Bowl ad and mounting knowledge of his way of life – he should scare you, too.”

Fire Boehner (After all, what is the point of having two Democratic parties?)

by xuberalles
Apparently a 17 trillion national debt, 50 million on welfare, and billions given away to illegal immigrants isn't enough to raise the ire of the Republican Party!
Speaker Boehner and the GOP are once again preparing to raise the debt ceiling; a hardline, legislative stipulation designed to halt runaway spending that threatens our economic viability.
And yet these are the hypocrites who claim conservatives, like the Tea Party, are the real problem. Sorry, John, but sound fiscal principles – like having a balanced budget in order to avoid massive debt, inflation, a crumbling private sector and a worthless currency – are not conservative ideals. They're common sense. America, founded on limited government and economic freedom, deserves leaders who will hold Washington accountable; not capitulate to the bankrupt ideology known as socialism. After all, what is the point of having two Democratic parties?
Demand Boehner's resignation or sign a petition to refuse to vote for another Republican candidate in 2014!


“nobody even complains” anymore!

Krauthammer: These ObamaCare changes are getting so endemic, “nobody even complains” anymore
Hotair ^ | 02/10/2014 | Erika Johnsen

They have a whole heap of regulations still left to write (at least $1.4 billion in annual compliance costs’ worth, by one estimate), but the employer mandate was part of the actual text of the law. Where is it written that they can just make at-will changes ad infinitum? Watch it at RCP:  photo Screenshot2014-02-10at84643PM_zps874b7c3f.png
Generally speaking, you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law, lawlessly. I mean, this is stuff that you do in a banana republic. It’s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama writes any number he wants, any delay he wants and any provision. It’s now reached a point where it is so endemic that nobody even notices or complains. I think if the complaints had started with the first arbitrary changes, and these are are not adjustments or transitions. These are political decisions to minimize the impact leading up to an election, and it’s changing the law in a way that you are not allowed to do. … It’s not incompetence. Willful breaking of the constitutional order — where in the Constitution is the president allowed to alter a law 27 times after it’s been passed?

And besides the utter lawlessness of the whole thing, there’s still the question of the tangible price of the White House’s non-legislative mood swings: After the Obama administration’s initial employer-mandate suspension through 2015 that they made back in July, the CBO estimated that it would add an additional $12 billion onto the total cost of ObamaCare because employers wouldn’t be paying penalties (i.e., taxes) on not insuring people, while more people would likely need to seek subsidized insurance through the exchanges because their employers wouldn’t be required to offer it yet. Won’t delaying the employer mandate again add at least ten billion or so more onto the total ObamaCare price tag? Especially if the Obama administration does decide to go through with the rumored (and, incidentally, also lawless) three-year extension of the “if you like your plan, you can keep it” fix for the cancelled plans in the individual market, doesn’t that all increase the likelihood of major “risk corridor” bailouts and/or the law’s fiscal implosion? What is going on?!

I Reckon We Can Get Rid of Boehner Soon- but Replaced by Whom?

Reaganite Republican ^ | 11 February 2014 | Reaganite Republican

We first heard rumblings of an internal challenge to John Boehner's wholly-ineffective 'leadership' back in 2010: it was Eric Cantor who looked like he might make a move, tho he quickly backed-off any idea of snatching the Speaker's gavel when support didn't materialize. But Cantor -who seems to have accomplished little of 'conservative' substance on Capitol Hill- hasn't stopped working on his slow, quiet coup either...

Another obvious candidate some thought the Tea Party could get behind would be Paul Ryan ... but after his support for bad budget deals, open-borders-lite immigration legislation (since collapsed), ceaseless spying on US citizens, and the way he screwed-over disabled combat veterans, you really have to question this go-along-to-get-along Republican's judgement/leadership potential. And what exactly is conservative about Paul Ryan, anyway- besides the haircut?






These Gee Oh Pee 'young guns' are actually squishy establishment tools that
-although slightly to the right of Boehner- cannot be counted-on to deliver anything resembling a 'Reagan revolution 2.0' as House Speaker... and that's the only sort of program that's ever going to right this listing ship. Both Ryan and Cantor have shown they're more than willing to abandon any principle to curry favor with the party's current Rothschild Republican establishment/donors...
these two are NO revolutionaries, and they're not friends of the Tea Party.





So, who? Michelle Bachmann -who would have been my first choice- is not running for Congress in 2014. Darrell Issa could be a 'maybe'.
Or
Jeb Hensarling? And I thought Patrick McHenry (NC) was a young buck on the way up... whatever happened to that?



Does Trey Gowdy have the stature? Seems to me not, although I have enjoyed some of his rants re. Benghazi, NSA, and IRS scandals.
And Gowdy
hasn't been any sort of hero in the immigration battle (won by the right), either- instead, he was rather disappointing, and on the wrong side, actually.



Here's the list of the entire House Conservative Caucus- you tell me, yet most of them would probably be an improvement over John Boehner,
who's so weak in dealing with the White House/Dems that you'd swear they have pictures of him drunk and in (tanning?) bed with farm animals.
