A Big Let Down….
What were they thinking…. or not? The news is not good for a majority of minority students in the largest public school district in OH. Their grades were changed. 5300 students had their grades changed from ‘fail’ to ‘passing’. To get more funds than they were entitled to, the school administrators marked kids who were heavy absentees to the drop out roles. changed the grades of 5300 students, all to guarantee extra funds. Today every school district will be investigated for these practises. It’s about time! Time to stop shortchanging kids for the sake of the unions and administrators. Corrupt people destroying our kid’s future. Oh, and not a word about this scandal in the local rag. I had to find it out on FOX.
Surely American literature has reached new heights with the publication of GuestHouse Games, in which Barack and Michelle Obama, “alone in their isolated beachfront guesthouse in the tropical paradise of Kailua, Hawaii,” are “drawn into the ancient Hawaiian spiritual world and into the exploration of their own deepest and most forbidden desires.”
Sounds like a real work of literature. it would be interesting to find out how the author voted.
Epic fail on the part of Beyonce…lipsynched the National Anthem. She didn’t come close to touching this;
Don’t believe it? Ask the Marines.
Kelly Clarkson overcame her jitters to sing live.
But it has emerged that while Kelly Clarkson dared to sing live, Beyonce decided at the last moment to lip sync to a pre-recorded track.
It paid off for Kelly, who earned rave reviews for her stirring version of My Country, ‘Tis of Thee
Obama finally came out of the closet. Although he has always implied he’s pragmatic and a centrist (likening himself to other Preezies) in all reality his speech did nothing but push a social agenda. 1,365 days without a budget. He has no plan to bring the spending under control. By 2017 we will be 22 trillion in debt…..YAY!
His narcisstic tendencies were also on full display
We aren’t worthy…. yes, me and you, the American people who do not necessarily trust government to benefit all….
President Barack Obama’s communications director, Dan Pfeiffer, says that our political system isn’t “worthy” of Obama and the opportunity the president presents. He made the remarks the Washington Post.
“There’s a moment of opportunity now that’s important,” Pfeiffer tells the paper. “What’s frustrating is that we don’t have a political system or an opposition party worthy of the opportunity.”
The issue is that if President Obama wants to get things done, he’ll have to work with the uncompromising Republicans.”If he is successful, his record could include a variety of legislative achievements that have eluded previous presidents and a place in history as the president who moved the country beyond the wars of the post-Sept. 11 era,” claims the Post.
“But, as the looming confrontation over the borrowing limit suggests, Obama’s ability to work with the Republican Party, through a mix of persuasion and confrontation, will probably determine his success — and his legacy, for better or worse.”
And according to his communications director, if Obama will be successful, he will need to move quickly, as his power is already waning.
Waning power? I like the sound of that.
So, what’s on your minds today?
