Some Fundamental Problems With Common Core

images

Common Core State Standards for education were advanced as a holistic reform intended to raise academic performance based on standardized achievement results. When reading the standards themselves, and the stated objectives, it’s inconceivable that anyone would take exception to them. Indeed, the education reform language sounds as idealistic and pertinent as any could. They were superbly crafted. Regrettably, in application, ...

The Perfection Known as Obama?

SuperBama

Once again, this week many of Mr. Obama’s failed “policies” started to close in around him; military, economic, healthcare, and immigration to name a few.

Between three and six million people are going to be affected by penalties, an “Individual Shared Responsibility Payment,” associated with the Affordable Care Act. And most of those affected ...

The Equality Hypocrites are at it again.

You know those hippy throwbacks who think it would be cool if everyone was “equal” like the Constitution guarantees? Just a heads up, the guarantee is for equal access to succeed, not a guarantee for equal success. This president can’t seem to grasp that truth. He has a hard time grasping many truths. And now, he’s given illegals, yes, the ...

It is not uncommon to find inconsistencies and even contradictions in U.S. foreign policy. Usually a few years of separation are required to reveal our inconsistency, as in the case of Iran. Rarely do we see such striking contradictions in real time as we do today in the Middle East policies of the Obama administration. ISIS occupies the center stage ...

One of the original questions the Supreme Court had to deal with in the seventies when they approved this “slaughter law” was, when does life begin. Well, all the academics and doctors that were willing to take some ...

No Longer the World’s Policeman, We’re Now the World’s Social Worker.

It’s 9AM late July and already the day is shot to hell. The temperature is over 80 and the humidity would wilt a Puritan’s collar. You’re supposed to be taking Migra, your Mexican Water Spaniel, on a 400–hundred-mile car trip. The dog’s 14–years–old if he’s a day, and who knows if he’ll live long enough to be reunited with the ...

Obama’s Man-Made Disaster – Our Southern Border Invasion

dt.common.streams.StreamServer.cls

It’s impossible to avoid the coverage of the “immigration crisis” on our southern border. The media’s pervasive use of disinformation terminology and appeals to morality of a sentient populace is employed to shape public perception on the humanitarian tragedy unfolding daily in the news. The problems are manifold, but the creation of the crisis is causally singular. And the solution, ...

Migrant Children – Pawns in an Insidious “Game”

Never could I have imagined that an authority of our government would dare to suggest that children be used to further political gain.  Clearly, the children crossing illegally into our country don’t have the capacity to understand how they are being used to perpetrate a 21st century “slavery” scam. These children will become wards of the state.  The government will ...
