  1. We need to give Schwartzkopf the coordinates of this meeting.

  2. There was a point and time when you really had to look long, and hard for the Marxists. Since Obama has been elected, they’ve been emboldened, and are not shy about saying who they are, and what they stand for.

  3. The Chicago Teachers Union is sponsoring a conference this weekend… On social justice.

    So is this where they devise more ways to poison young brains?

  4. #20 BG – yes, the response to voter fraud allegations has been pathetic. I’ve sent about 100 emails to Fox, they finally “reported” on the 100% for Obama numbers in Philly, but their “investigation” showed that that’s normal in some precincts. What they failed to report — and this is what’s significant in the story — is that many of those 59 0-for-Romney precincts had 100% voter turnout (or more!!). That part they didn’t report! Jeez. Anyway, just keep bombarding them with emails — I send at least 3 a day to voterfraud@foxnews.com and foxnewstips@foxnews.com. It reminds me of how the media has ignored Sheriff Joe. It’s like they’re afraid of being called ‘tin hatters’. Those Alinsky tactics really work.

  5. best not to live near chicago or hire anyone from there

  6. How anyone can send there kids to public school is simply beyond me. We sacrifice mightily to homeschool our children. I suggest one figure out a way to do it too.

  7. Sorry, I wish this board had a way to correct mistakes…should be “their” not there.

  8. The hard left has taken over the major institutions of our society – government, education, and media. We must unite and retake these institutions. We must stand up together. Action Now!

  9. Okay, odds anybody on us getting out this without insurrection and riots…playing right into O’s plan to confiscate guns and place us under martial law?

    Because Rahm is so very very good at disarming but ‘surprisingly’ cannot seem to make even a dent quieting gangs, thugs and unions….

  10. folks, we need to start naming sites with innocuous safe words and somehow get word out on where these sites are.

  11. and people stop using G o o g l e, but use ixquick.com (no ip collecting) or something else.

  12. OT

  13. SAT scores down, participation up–Educators Use Racist Excuse

    I love when educators give excuses for the failure of government schools.

    “California scores declined this year on the SAT test used by many colleges to screen applicants, according to a release from the state Department of Education.

    But the pool of high school seniors taking the test grew — which may have accounted for the lower average scores.”

    If the government schools were working, then all the students would be succeeding, instead of bringing scores down.

    Then the educators became racist. Why are the scores down? “And for the first time, Latinos were the largest ethnic group taking the test in California.”

    Sounds racist to me—isn’t that what President Obama would say?

    SAT scores down, participation up

    California scores declined this year on the SAT test used by many colleges to screen applicants, according to a release from the state Department of Education.

    But the pool of high school seniors taking the test grew — which may have accounted for the lower average scores. And for the first time, Latinos were the largest ethnic group taking the test in California.

    Overall, nearly 70 percent of the students from public high schools in the Class of 2012 who took the test were minorities. Thirty-six percent were Latino, 29 percent were white, 22 percent were Asian and 7 percent were African American.

    Nearly half of those who took the test said that English was not exclusively their first language.

    The mean writing score decreased 3 points to 491 for the Class of 2012 compared to a year earlier; the mean critical reading scores dropped 3 points to 491, and the mean math score dropped 3 points to 510.

  14. Don’t know where to put this. So here goes. VIEW THEN READ http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-1gy8iPMQtjw/UKcGmNgwPwI/AAAAAAAA_zo/9tMpjk7YpNA/s1600/121116-stargate.jpg

    DUDE: What the Hell is China Building Here?

    If these guys are building their own Stargate, I’m gonna be pissed.

    Not happy with building mysterious gigantic structures in the desert, the Chinese are now building inter-dimensional portals in the middle of their cities. What the hell is this 515-foot (157 meters) high metal structure in the the city of Fushun, in northeast China’s Liaoning province?

    …It’s made of an astounding 3,000 tons of steel and it will glow at night—decorated with 12,000 LED lights. According to Fushun Municipal Government’s officials, this titanic structure does absolutely nothing except serve as an elevated sighting position. They claim it is pretty “landscape architecture”—like the Eiffel Tower. It uses four elevators to take people to the top.

    …According to Fushun’s Urban Construction Bureau, the “Ring of Life” means “a round sky and a path leading to a paradise in heaven.”

    I’m telling you guys right now: this is a Stargate, I don’t care what they use as a cover story.
