Hump Day Report: CCLVI and CI
ALOHA. ALL! Did you enjoy Super Bowl XLVI last night? If you watched it with any teenage kids, you probably should have asked them what “XLVI” means. Chances are, they wouldn’t have know. You see, they’re not teaching Roman numerals in schools any more. They teach all manner of green eco-nonsense and societal fairness, but Roman numerals are history….so to speak. OK, granted Roman numerals aren’t used all that often. But it’s one more example of how schools are sweeping historical perspectives away and ushering in their own priorities. Editorial: Friends, Romans, lend us your numerals (BTW…as the title for this issue of the HDR says, this is the 256th edition. Holy Moly!)
And they’re drinking in all the leftist crap. I recently read a book by Marybeth Hicks called “Don’t Let The Kids Drink The Kool-Aid.” Do you know what’s being taught in your schools? How about these little gems:
- Socialism is better than the free marker
- Christianity is judgmental and mean
- America is the villain of world history
- Family doesn’t mean marriage
- Greed is destroying the earth
- We need the government to take care of us
It’s been going on for years, folks. Wake up….and read this book! And guess who are the poster children of Kool-Aid drinkers? The darlings of the media…the OWS:
Happy Birthday President Reagan! (Yes, the other Roman numeral in the HDR title is in honor of Reagan’s 101st birthday.) Ronald Reagan’s 101st Birthday: His Legacy Lives On “Upon his inauguration, Reagan was confronted with a deep economic crisis, one of the worst sustained inflations in America’s history, historically high unemployment, the fallout from an energy crisis, stagnation, massive government spending, an untenable tax burden, a hollow military, and the Soviet threat. Yet in the face of the economic crisis, President Reagan turned toward not more government, but less. And in the face of a global threat, he turned toward a stronger military and international leadership — not a weaker military and retrenchment.”
So I HAVE to show this:
Don’t believe the phony unemployment numbers. Record 1.2 Million People Fall Out Of Labor Force In One Month, Labor Force Participation Rate Tumbles To Fresh 30 Year Low “…the civilian labor force tumbled to a fresh 30 year low of 63.7% as the BLS is seriously planning on eliminating nearly half of the available labor pool from the unemployment calculation.” And here are some raw numbers for you: Unemployment numbers fudged | Sage of the Nansemond
By now you’ve heard the “Natural Born Citizen” case in Georgia was dismissed. Which begs this question: If Obama has no Natural Born Citizenship problem why did Congress try to fix it? “Congress made eight different attempts to alter our U.S. Constitution concerning the Natural Born Citizenship Clause according to the apocalyptic video documentary done with research by Senior Pastor Carl Gallups proving they knew Barack Obama lacked presidential eligibility prior to the 2008 election.”
Loose lips sink ships. Both Leon Panetta and Diane Feinstein need to zip it. January surprise: We’re ending our combat mission in Afghanistan a year early, says Panetta « Hot Air Way to go, Leon! Let the Taliban know all they have to do is wait for another year. Senate [complete lack of] Intelligence Committee chairwoman broadcasts details of secret meeting – Common American Journal Feinstein blabbed about the Mossad boss’ secret meeting in DC with the CIA. Brilliant.
Then there’s Ginsberg. Justice Ginsburg Violates Her Oath – Common American Journal Yep, she said this: “You should be aided by all the constitutional writings that have gone on since the end of World War II, I would not look to the US Constitution if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012.” They shoot horses, don’t they????
This seems appropriate. Note: If Planned Parenthood is so concerned about women getting mammograms, why don’t they have the machines in their facilities? Oh, that’s right! PP really exists to perform abortions. But don’t try to explain to a liberal that PP founder Margaret Sanger started her organization to kill black babies – they don’t want to hear it! The Negro Project and Margaret Sanger
Final Thought: “Thomas Jefferson once said, ‘We should never judge a president by his age, only by his works.’ And ever since he told me that, I stopped worrying.” Ronald Reagan
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER!!
