Do The Math!

Do the math — Common Core = a massive, risky experiment on your kids | Fox News.

A professor of math at Stanford weighs in on the new “Common Core” plan for teaching kids math.  It is NOT a good idea – aimed at minimal development instead of actual math education.

Parents and teachers should refuse to settle for this Common Core mediocrity, and demand truly world-class standards for the good of our students and our country.

Don’t our children deserve better than mediocrity?

Frederick Douglass on Immigration

“We shall mould [shape or form] them all, each after his kind, into Americans; Indian and Celt, Negro and Saxon, Latin and Teuton, Mongolian and Caucasian, Jew and Gentile, all shall here bow to the same law, speak the same language, support the same government, enjoy the same liberty, vibrate with the same national enthusiasm, and seek the same national ends.”

Quote by Frederick Douglass

Immigrants should obey our law, learn our language, and study & value our Constitution

Too American???

Iconic 9/11 Photo Almost Rejected From Museum For Being Too American – Cortney O’Brien.

Probably the most famous 9/11 photo about America’s determination to overcome the horror and tragedy of this attack, and they wanted to reject it???

Instead of outright rejecting it, they decided to minimize it and make a montage of the moment from three different angles.

I am almost speechless at the very idea.  “Too American”?  We were attacked because we were American.  How can it be “too American”? Give me a break!  The picture shows a moment of clear hope on a tragic occasion.  Three firefighters raise an American flag over the ruins of the World Trade Center.  For Americans, it was a declaration.

We will rise again!  You cannot defeat us with terror!

But, oh, this iconic picture is “too American”.

It is time for America to stop being ashamed of being America!!!

Do not be ashamed to stand up and proclaim -

I AM AN AMERICAN! I AM A PROUD AMERICAN!

Why The ‘Real’ Unemployment Rate Is Higher Than You Think – Forbes

Why The ‘Real’ Unemployment Rate Is Higher Than You Think – Forbes.

This certainly didn’t get better with the new taxes people have been seeing on the horizon.  More and more employees are beginning to be moved down to part time in order for businesses to avoid paying fines and taxes that insurance requirements and Obamacare have and may yet bring.

Obama Policies Stir Passions but Worsen Inequality

Obama Policies Stir Passions but Worsen Inequality.

His policies and those of his cronies are making things worse, but people still seem to think ‘Hope and Change’ will suddenly turn the US in a utopia.

If people want things to get better, it is private investment and stronger businesses that create jobs and bring strength to the American dollar.

Think the government should oversee big business?  They’re too busy going after issues that haven’t been issues in decades or dragging their feet in dealing with government scandals.

A roll-back of recent tax increases, tough responses to Chinese cheating on trade and theft of intellectual property, developing more domestic oil, scrapping ObamaCare, and a Justice Department that investigates monopoly behavior that hurts ordinary Americans would raise incomes and combat inequality.

Big government isn’t the solution – it’s the problem.

 

The Tragedy of Isolation – Thomas Sowell

The Tragedy of Isolation – Thomas Sowell – Page 1.

Thomas Sowell does it again.  He gives us an answer with some common sense.  Race and culture have nothing to do with lower scores on mental and/or IQ tests.  Isolation from the greater communities will do that.

People who push for cultural or racial isolation are only handicapping themselves.
