School board slams Michelle O lunch rules: ‘Her children go to private school’! ^ | Oct. 6, 2014 | Kyle Olson 

NORTH TONAWANDA, N.Y. – More schools are pointing out the emperor has no clothes, or in this case, isn’t eating the “rabbit food” being given to everyone else.
York’s North Tonawanda Board of Education is the latest to lash out at the new school lunch rules championed by First Lady Michelle Obama.
“We left thinking, what are we feeding these kids?” school board president Colleen Osborn, said at a recent meeting, according to the Tonawanda News.
“We have students of all different shapes and sizes. Some of these kids have lunch at 10 a.m. and then they’re limited and can’t buy other things. It’s a broken system.”
The paper reports the board is concerned students may be going hungry.

Common Core Math Problem: How to Subtract 293 from 568 in Just 10 Steps! (With Picture)!

Pundit Press ^ | 10/6/14 | Aurelius 

Imagine a teacher asks you to solve this question: 568-293. Depending on your age you might do one of three things...
...Third, you might use the new common core was to subtract, which is much simpler, with only... 10 steps.
First, you would take the 200 out of the 293, and save the 93 for later. Then you would take 568 and subtract 200 from it. Then you'd take the remaining 368 and you would subtract 60 from it, because you are taught that, for some reason, you cannot simply subtract 90 from 368. 368-60 equals 308. Then you subtract 30 from 308 because, again, for some reason 368-90 doesn't exist. 308-30 equals 278. Then you take the three that is left over from 293-290, because you already subtracted 200, 60, and 30 from 293 to get three, and you minus that 3 from the remaining 278 that you got from subtracting 290 from 568. Still following? Good, because one you minus 3 from 278, you get the answer of 275! Then, you double check your answer by adding up 200 + 60 + 30 + 3 to get 293, which is the number you subtracted from 568. Much, much more complicated than the other two methods and an over-complification of a simple problem. More than that, the way to figure out this problem is literally more than the other two methods combined.
This is an actual common core problem which, hilariously, tries to tell students its a mere three steps: Common Core Math

Factcheck: Obama's numbers - October 2014 update ^ 

Highlights from our latest update: Millions of Americans have gained health insurance because of Obamacare, and the number signing up for Medicaid keeps rising. But the exact number of newly insured won't be known for some time. Those signing up for private insurance in Obamacare marketplaces for 2015 will find 25 percent more insurance companies competing for their business. Marketplace premiums for 2015 are averaging 0.8 percent lower than this year, according to preliminary data. Median household income declined 4.6 percent during Obama’s first five years, and nearly 5.5 million more Americans were living in poverty last year than before he took office.

A Culture of Incompetence

American Thinker ^ | 10/6/2014 | Bruce Walker 

Obama’s left never accepts responsibility for anything. Weaned on the sour milk of thuggish, tenured academicians and marinated in the surreal stew of lawyer-land, the odd creatures that infest our White House have no notion of work or honor or duty. This manifests itself in different ways.
Mendacity has been elevated almost to a secular religion. Obama, his officials, his armies of minor minions prevaricate with such aplomb that one wonders if they truly know when they are lying or telling the truth. The disgraceful trail of obfuscations, dissimulations, and quarter-truths are invariably defended by the administration’s flacks with the mantra “we have seen no evidence.” Of course we have not! The evidence has been destroyed or hidden or lied about.
Politicians lie, of course, and have as long as government has been around, but the sheer audacity of fabrications (the video that “caused” the Benghazi attack) rise to the level of Orwellian thought control, compounded by the utter indifference of the establishment media to calling out these lies.
Profound isolation from the governed is also a hallmark of our pathetic president and his hapless helpers. How could Obama, with a straight face, adopt Reagan’s “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” line and assume that ordinary folk would yip for joy?
