Instead we have heard a lot about a health-care overhaul that already needs an overhaul. Additionally, the United States internationally has been entangled in one huge scandal after another.
Furthermore, in a rare but very realistic maneuver House Speaker John Boehner killed the possibility of taking up the Senate bill; President Obama conceded and said a piecemeal approach likely to be used by the House in 2014 could work for him.
All things being equal there is not a hill of beans that looking upon a Senate S.744 consisting of well over 2,000 pages has alerted those in the House that maybe immigration reform is not about amnesty – mind you for some that is all that matters. Yet looking toward real immigration reform, as we have suggested should be dealt with preferably one issue at a time.
An Example of the Mainstream-media:
“Considering the House’s record of accomplishment, sometimes it is tough to imagine anything being accomplished on immigration beyond tougher border enforcement, and that would leave unchanged the status of more than 11 million living in the shadows.”
Another Example of fair and balanced media:
Insofar as the House is concerned it has been within their charter to engage in tougher border enforcement – this does include the complete infrastructure of our borders and by popular demand the American people have spoken regarding law enforcement and the condition of this nation’s borders.
No Mainstream or Fair and Balanced media:
As far as 11 million illegal’s living in the shadows – is tantamount to a cliché, one used far to much. Daily we see immigrants without any legal authority whatsoever getting far brasher and demanding in an entire load of rallies and protests.
This week a group of about 50 advocates for immigration will fast in Chicago for at least 24 hours to show solidarity with a group that has been fasting in Washington, D.C. for more than two weeks, said Lawrence Benito, chief executive officer of the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (Our fear has been realized: Immigration AND Refugee Rights).
The movement for reform includes religious leaders, business leaders, Democrats and Republicans. We have experienced factious orthodox religion trying hard with their conglomerates of special interest advisors, advocacy groups, and make-shift Scriptural readings. However, as long as it took us during our information gathering and research, it did not take long to see what this colition of evangelicals is trying to do.
Obama should require government agencies to halt deportations of those who fit requirements for legal residency under the Senate bill, Giovagnoli said. “That’s a reasonable approach,” she added. “You’re actually respecting Congress.” Absolutely demented.
The deadliest drug problem in America is not heroin or cocaine or even crack cocaine. It is the abuse of perfectly legal prescription pain medications — familiar names such as Vicodin and Lortab and generic hydrocodone.
Therefore, having read that shocker of an opening statement, which certainly does not make it true; moreover, such a claim lacks any basis to the real problem.
We believe that the problem – or so referred to, is actually “What causes the addictive personality in America or in other areas around the globe?”
Starting with chocolate and moving through coffee (yep, tea is included) the list of what people get addicted to for whatever reasons are frequently connected with substance abuse; however, people with addictive personalities are also highly at risk of becoming addicted to gambling, food, pornography, exercise, work, and codependency. Scientists have been better able to understand addictive personalities as researchers delve further into understanding the chemistry of addiction.
Lately as in 1906 and 1972, as well as other times in the history of the U.S.A., manufacturers have been cited, fined, and penalized for having controlled addictive properties “naturally” in their products. On March 13, 1911,
the government initiated the case under the 1906 Pure Food and Drug Act. It tried to force The Coca-Cola Company to remove caffeine from the Coca-Cola formula, believing that the product was adulterated and misbranded.
The product(s) that we are most familiar with is of course Coca-Cola. There has always been trace amounts of cocaine hydrochloride within the beverage or just about anything made from it. These two dates in particular resonate in my mind first, it was explained to me by a Coca-Cola touring associate whilst in Atlanta, Georgia and in the second instance, is when I started working at Shasta Beverages who also produces a Cola drink very similar to that of Coca-Cola; however, not nearly as good. One must understand that there is only one Coca-Cola Company.
Ironically while visiting the Coke store for memorabilia and gifts it was a bit surprising to find original cocktail trays stating in clear and decorative script “The drink that cures all ails and anything else that hinders you…” We did marvel over how the beverage was marketed with advertising and slogans that “Keeps you from fatigue,” and “Great for Stomach Disorders.”
Originally intended as a patent medicine when it was invented in the late 19th century by John Pemberton, Coca-Cola was bought out by businessman Asa Griggs Candler, whose marketing tactics led Coke to its dominance of the world soft-drink market throughout the 20th century.
One of the tenants of respect that admire in any individual – regardless of political party affiliation – is held in their belief system. I conclude that a person who is of sound moral ethics, and has a reverence for all things traditionally American, with values, and copious amounts of virtue have earned my respect.
It really is not a matter of being fond of or liking someone, that is altogether a different medium. I do have those people in my life that have convinced me that they earned my respect. How could a person not respect Charles Krauthammer? Rush Limbaugh? Ann Coulter or Tom Fitton, CEO of Judicial Watch, as well as Roy Beck the founder of Numbers USA.
And welcome our visitors from Lithuania, the Philippines, Trinidad and Tobacco, the Virgin Islands, and New Zealand.
On Friday’s program, radio host Rush Limbaugh put the Obamacare roll-out fiasco into historical perspective, declaring that in many ways, the current scandal is worse than Watergate.
“Folks,” Limbaugh told his audience, “Richard Nixon resigned over a lie that was much less damaging in scope than this one.”
“The bottom line,” he said, “is that Obama, the regime, knew that 93 million Americans would be unable to keep their health care plans under Obamacare. … I mean, this is an abject, purposeful lie to the American people for the express purpose of passing legislation.”
The other aim of Obamacare, Limbaugh insisted, was to undermine the private insurance business itself.
He pointed to an “obscure report buried in a June 2010 edition of the Federal Register,” in which White House officials matter-of-factly predicted that Obamacare would create “massive disruption of the private insurance market because that’s what was intended.”
Limbaugh replayed an audio montage of Obama’s repeated promises that Americans who were satisfied with their existing health insurance could keep their plans following the passage of the Affordable Care Act. Limbaugh called these promises “a total fraud.”
The Affordable Care Act, Limbaugh continued, “is a purposeful, deceitful, fraudulent law.”

Obesity in the Government
As for us here at The Contemplative Thinker (’s) there are more issues, let me correct that – there are more heinous, obscene, and ridiculous issues that confront Americans every day then what any mainstream media organization has the overall ability to critically process and never a word gets reported.
However, if one were to focus on heinous issues, obscene outcomes, and truly ridiculous matters that we see everyday maybe just one or two people will catch on and start saying something about it – and if they tell their friends and their friends begin to talk openly, then we will have a bonafide “movement.”
If we take enough issues and pin-point the established reasoning; moreover, what someone in Congress thought would be better still, then lets amend the entire issue. What happen in the end of all such reasoning are chaos, corruption, crimes, and commotion.
Let us call them oxymorons. People in the mainstream-media want Americans to look directly at the obesity pandemic that apparently the country is suffering from. Can we please STOP for a moment and look at the size of our central government?
Of course there is Head Start. Some of the procedures that workers at Head Start programs would love to achieve are: Listening and Learning About Early Learning Tour – Early Childhood Initiative – Early Childhood Education Programs – Other Early Childhood Education Programs – Parent Programs Resources for Parents – Resources for Teachers and Administrators – and Research and Evaluations – Publications.
Sure this sounds great to anyone who reads it. However, one need to ask either at the local level – the actual grade level teachers is these programs are effective. If the programs are not effective why then are they being used, and are we paying for it? Or from a greater data pool consider if it is effective at all.
As President Obama gracefully has pledged to use only one test when determining which education programs to fund. “It’s not whether an idea is liberal or conservative,” Obama stated, “but whether it works.” HHS’s third-grade follow-up evaluation makes it unequivocally clear that Head Start fails that test.
So what is it that we can say? For starters the health care program known as ‘ObamaCare’ or The Affordable Care Act is beyond question one of the ingredients that will take down America. But do you think that first, Democrats even care and second, that given his up to date record of lying and fabricating the truth, that Obama is in the group that knows it will kill us – No!
Therefore at the cost of perhaps the USA experiencing its first ever default on any loan incurred, does it make sense to you that President Obama would refund Head Start for a newer, healthier direction.
One matter that I wanted to say earlier is why not call it what it really is – oddly when looking up at the paragraph as to what Head Start is supposed to do – is primarily what should be done in the home by dedicated parents.
Head Start is just another name for child daycare, eating and nutritional entitlements, another pay in – and pay out program for the government much the same as educational loans. Given the results of the data I question myself as to why anyone would consider this program as anything but archaic.
We will over the next several days be looking at some real ‘bottom of the barrel’ programs funded of course by the US government which as you know really means the US taxpaying citizen.
What we, the American people need to do is to tell these paper-mache blowhards who are allegedly supposed to be representing us – the people – in fact paid by the people to get the cushiest seat for bribing, lying to, or even exhorting members of the various special interest groups ostensibly for their own gain and profit because it sure is not that way for us.
Again today being driven by the inspiration of Ms. Jedediah Bila, a FoxNews contributor, who just like the little bunny rabbit for Ever-ready batteries she has such passion about issues and voices them when she is called on to contribute. In short I think that we mentioned her in a writing (Oct 9, 2013) last week about political correctness and how well she managed to pacify a crowd on as a nation one is insane if they think they can create something new for every sensitivity happening today in this nation [author paraphrasing…]
Today Ms. Bila was charged and imbuing passion once again – only this time she certainly did not need my assistance. She laid out the exact same principles that we have over here. Meaning of course it is beyond time to shrink or downsize a very hefty fat federal government.
Not long ago we wrote the first few posts of what needs to happen in America with regard to spending; moreover, a reasonable blueprint for how it could be done – realistically and the only people who would know are those bureaucrats who are not working anyway.
Let us ask you something – Does the Department of Education need cut backs? Of course we vote yes it does. In fact, we could get at another agency who indeed takes more funding to run – The Department of Health and Human Services. This idea of Democrats and Republicans, as well as Independents and Libertarians to choose a “program” target it, then start cutting away at it will not work. We have raw evidence of those ‘never working condition’ compliments of the Democrats.
Therefore our expressed concern is to take every government expenditure known inside and out of the Capital beltway (area that goes around the nation’s capital) and first, see if it is needed; second, how much money are we putting into it, and third ask if we need the program or not.
From the Mission Statement at Head Start: “Head Start is a federal program that promotes the school readiness of children ages birth to five from low-income families by enhancing their cognitive, social, and emotional development. Predicated upon the release of this Report as well as findings there are those who feel that Obama deliberately left out the Report until after the November 2013 general election.
The timing of the release raises questions about whether HHS was trying to bury the findings in the report, which shows, among other outcomes, that by third grade, the $8 billion Head Start program had little to no impact on cognitive, social-emotional, health, or parenting practices of participants. On a few measures, access to Head Start had harmful effects on children.
In 2010, HHS released the findings of the Head Start Impact Study, which tracked the progress of three- and four-year-olds entering Head Start through kindergarten and first grade. Overall, Head Start had little to no positive effects for children who were granted access.
Alarmingly, access to Head Start for the three-year-old group actually had a harmful effect on the teacher-assessed math ability of these children once they entered kindergarten. Teachers reported that non-participating children were more prepared in math skills than those children who participated in Head Start.
Impacts on Cognitive Development for example showed cognitive development, the third-grade study assessed 11 outcomes for the original three- and four-year-old cohorts. Access to Head Start for each group had no statistically measurable effects on all measures of cognitive ability, including numerous measures of reading, language, and math ability.
President Obama has pledged to use only one test when determining which education programs to fund: “It’s not whether an idea is liberal or conservative,” Obama stated, “but whether it works.” HHS’s third-grade follow-up evaluation makes it unequivocally clear that Head Start fails that test.
We all know that this one has been brewing for quite some time. Yet it only ends up on the national media when it is covered by those outlets that fall within the mainstream media. We find this a good example of a case study which should be well-known to journalists or those who have given their years in the realm of investigative journalism.
Of course at issue here is the name of an athletic team. Ladies and gentlemen what we are witnessing is the dregs of political correctness taken to its immeasurable point.
One day time willing we will take the this idea of athletic club names, the do’s and the don’ts, the favorable versus the unfavorable with of course the prominent voices of those experts in the fields – and to be sure give a realistic reason as to why these various clubs were named as they were or remain to this day.
However, today we bring forth the altruistic affect of political correctness and why when it rears its ugly head, and then we owe the inciters of such venom their just adieu and at the very least hear their commentary.
That precisely is what we have done today. Even after sports commentator, Robert Costas, made the upheaval of mistakes last year with his public (television mainstream media) commentary that went far beyond his professional circumstances.
Costas used his position as sportscaster turned politician, by exploiting his NBC halftime commentary slot to roll out a controversial rant about how “Handguns do not enhance our safety” shortly after the death of Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, one might think the Lecture Series would be on hold. But on Sunday night, Costas offered another liberal rant with no rebuttal – against the term “Redskins.”
First we advocate that anyone from the POTUS to someone down on their luck and homeless to always present both sides to every conceivable debate topic. Instead with Costas as with so many other dweebs in their selective professions need to get their point across at the will and prejudice of the truth, which as we know is the hallmark of political correctness. So on to Costas’ rant:
COSTAS: “And the Miami of Ohio Redskins – that’s right, Redskins – are now the Redhawks. Still, the NFL franchise that represents the nation’s capital has maintained its name.*
But think for a moment about the term “Redskins,” and how it truly differs from all the others. Ask yourself what the equivalent would be if directed toward African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, or members of any other ethnic group. These others don’t exist.**
When considered that way, Redskins can’t possibly honor a heritage or a noble character trait. Nor can it possibly be considered a neutral term. It’s an insult, a slur, no matter how benign the present-day intent.***
It’s fair to say that for a long time now, and certainly in 2013, no offense has been intended. But if you take a step back, isn’t it easy to see how offense might legitimately be taken?****
We would like to address each of the points Costas has mentioned and after showing its fraudulent interaction and intent – we would like to set some matters straight.
*”Still the franchise that represents the nation’s capital has maintained its name.” This is simply not true and Bob Costas knows it. Especially in the NFL teams and organizations are far more aligned with the geographic area they represent such as: the Minnesota Vikings, Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay (WS) Packers, and a few more.
For example it was not long ago that Seattle held all major records regarding sales of it official NFL memorabilia; so many people say “Why”? Look at the competition – nowhere in the states of WA, OR, ID, WY, ND, SD, or MT do they have a professional NFL team therefore, for most fans align themselves with Seattle.
**With all due respect what if the name “Redskins” did not refer to any particular tribe or person whatsoever?
***Is very much like saying that oral tradition is dead. No story-telling, griots, or how brave some person can be.
Sorry Costas all one need to do is look up just a small amount of history to see why both NFL fans and members of the Native American community like and encourage the name. It is very much as I mentioned before, if there are sensitivities to the use of this or any other name the chances are most likely a masquerade of some sort of political correctness — meaning either a political perspective or it is about sensitive change.
The simple truth remains that the “tomahawk chop,” “Seminoles” at FSU, and just about everywhere there is a reference to honor…there will always be a reference to money. At least at the collegiate levels — it is well known that the university mentioned above willfully pays out big money in order to use these names. Dan Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins should be expecting that from the mainstream media.
“Women in the Senate Confront the Military on Sex Assaults.”
The headline on the front page of the New York Times said it all: “Women in the Senate Confront the Military on Sex Assaults.”
In a triumphalist article highlighting the growing numbers of women on the Senate Armed Services Committee, “one of the Senate’s most testosterone-driven panels,” the story line presents female Senators attacking male military officials over charges of sexual assaults against women in the armed forces.
Us-against-them stories are great for generating excitement in the media and in politics. But whether any of this political theater will actually reduce sexual assaults against women in the armed forces is a very different question.
For thousands of years, people around the world had the common sense to realize that putting young men and young women together in military operations was asking for trouble, not only for these young people of both sexes, but for the effectiveness of military forces entrusted with the fate of nations.
Yet, in these politically correct times, civilian leaders who increasingly have no experience whatever in the armed forces are far more willing to try to micro-manage the military than back in the days when most members of Congress and most Presidents had served in the military.

Dr. Ben Carson on ObamaCare…
Neurosurgeon and author Dr. Ben Carson has been an outspoken opponent of Obamacare. We finally got the opportunity to catch up with him to ask him what Obamacare means to him as a doctor—and an American.
Watch our two-minute video to find out what he had to say about the health care system, bureaucrats meddling between doctors and patients, and the driving forces behind Obamacare.
According to Dr. Carson, he is concerned – as should every American or recipient of such – of the doctor and patient relationship which he advocates for and on behalf of medical practitioners, not matter where in the relationship they are. He believes strongly that our “middle advocacy personnel” [emphasis by author] are a desperate need for proper medical care.
Moreover, Dr. Carson believes that there is far too much bureaucracy as well as rules and regulations involved in medical services. This is an important issue, therefore we will reiterate; Dr. Carson believes that there is far too much paperwork involved during the set-up phase (patients) furthermore, what could be worse for a doctor than even more paperwork.
One should realize that doctors who are performing the proverbial paperwork are not doing in fact what they were tortured with during medical school – performing medical procedures. Dr. Carson believes bureaucrats meddling between doctors and patients, and the driving forces behind Obamacare.
And finally Dr. Carson makes a perfect analysis as to what ObamaCare is. Carson openly states that if a government can control a person’s need for health care – the issue is not the well-being of the patient, rather the power continuum literally involves the government’s control over individual and their right to health care.
The government shutdown has cramped President Obama’s golfing addiction. For the first time since early July, the president skipped his weekly outing to the greens. Mr. Obama spent an unseasonably warm and sunny October weekend indoors, but he did not use the extra time to negotiate with Republicans over the political impasse.
Mr. Obama has taken a break from golf only twice of the last 30 weeks and both were to avoid public scrutiny — after the Boston Marathon bombing in April and while touring Africa in June.

As far back as 1782, J. Hector de Crevecoeur, a French settler in New York, pictured this new country as two things. One was a land of opportunity. Another was a place where all these unique settlers from all different lands would melt into a new race. The term “melting pot” was used as a metaphor after that. In a real melting pot, metals are put together in a pot. Then the metals are melted at a high temperature. They come together as a new compound that is stronger than the original metals alone. The “melting pot” in American history was meant to show how people would fuse into a great blend in this powerful democracy. Thus, many different ethnic groups joined together thus to create a united country and have given up their ties to their individual ethnic groups.
This white paper tries to acknowledge the notion of the long usage of the terms, Melting Pot, ethnicity, cultures, as well as assimilation that we are sure is in the forefront of everyone’s minds.
The following are ways in which social scientists have attempted to define the word assimilation. One can easily see where some of the scientists have overlapped in their judgments of explanation. Finally we try to bring forth how the original metaphor of The Melting Pot came to define a lot of American theory.
It seems as though through the very definitions of words (keeping in mind of course, political correctness) that the word ethnic is supportive of sharing cultural characteristics; moreover, this notion is having the ability of sharing distinctive cultural traits as a group in a society (Best for defining ethnic minorities).
Another definition strongly linked to the original or aforementioned is that ability whereby one is from a different culture and has the ability of knowing when to share with the dominate cultures within a given society; or, relating to a group or groups in society with distinctive cultural traits (Best when used with the notion of one’s own ethnic origins).
Still another portion of our definition is relating to a person or to a large group of people who share a national, racial, linguistic, or religious heritage, whether or not they reside in their countries of origin (Best when discussing ethnic origins given their plights and examination of their suffrage).
Still further into the realm of cultural characteristics is contained within the definition of being culturally traditional which is belonging to or associated with the traditional culture of a social group (Ethnic clothing).
The melting pot is a metaphor for a heterogeneous society becoming more homogeneous, the different elements “melting together” into a harmonious whole with a common culture. It is particularly used to describe the assimilation of immigrants to the United States; the melting-together metaphor was in use by the 1780s.
After 1970 the desirability of assimilation and the melting pot model was challenged by proponents of multiculturalism, who assert that cultural differences within society are valuable and should be preserved, proposing the alternative metaphor of the mosaic, salad bowl, or “American Kaleidoscope”—different cultures mix, but remain distinct.
We feel that this particular attitude in post hippy dome USA, and very much to the disliking of liberals everywhere we believe that those things (luggage) one brings with them to this nation are not something that is bad or otherwise. Rather we choose the moniker of personal – that is what makes individuals unique – however, to take the culture’s from the people who immigrate to this country does inevitably cause damage or a feeling of unsteadiness insofar as within a nation’s boundaries order (hence power) for government affairs and the rule of law must exist.
And after President Barack Obama won Hispanic voters by a nearly 3-1 margin, a demographic drubbing that startled GOP tacticians everywhere, Bailey embarked on a public relations blitz that landed his message in national outlets like NPR, The Huffington Post, Politico, and RedState.com. Unfortunately for those…they were duped by this cunning lie, and once again their hopes and wishes were used for the ill-profit gain of the Presidency.
By the time the Senate took up the issue in the spring, comprehensive immigration reform finally seemed to have momentum. It is as if nothing is done unless Congress sanctifies the matter and then they go forth and put together the worst concoction in every sense of the matter.
As far as we are concerned this process is in and of itself ridiculous and certainly a case study in mismanagement. When matters such as the addition of realistically… 20 to 35 million more people added to the nation’s ranks, we feel that is when the greatest segue into American public policy and personal opinion come in and should be revered as the way it is.
We at The Contemplative Thinker owe a debt of sincere gratitude to the site, The Mad Jewess, for covering this before we got it and inscribed our opinions on it. For us, this is simply unconscionable.
A federal judge ruled that a biblically based denunciation of homosexuality was a “crime against humanity.”
In his decision in the case of Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG) v. Lively, U.S. District Court Judge Michael Ponsor held that Scott Lively, an evangelical pastor, was “aiding and abetting a crime against humanity” when Lively spoke in Uganda and in America against homosexual behavior.
We are not sure what any of that means with the exception that a loose cannon federal judge is trying to enforce laws that have no standing here in the United States.
Ponsor wrote in his 79-page opinion that Lively’s message was “analogous to a terrorist designing and manufacturing a bomb in this country, which he then mails to Uganda with the intent that it explode there.”
That is a little too much of our understanding of the law (or any sane person’s.) This much we do know: One, it has become seriously questionable as to whether or not the federal judge has read or studied the U.S. Bill of Rights or simply if he understands what he is doing. Plain and simple – this Judge Michael Ponsor is attempting to legislate from the bench.
The plaintiff in the case is a consortium of groups based in Kampala, Uganda that fight for “fair and equal treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people” in the East Africa region.
Ponsor says that Lively, by publishing tracts and delivering discourses condemning same-sex relationships, was acting as “an upper-level manager or leader of a criminal enterprise.”
Well then there you have it…this judge is not short on words or even his understanding of standard business protocol.
Ponsor, a 1994 Clinton appointee, calls Lively’s Ugandan hosts “co-conspirators” in Lively’s violations of “international norms.” Any person saying such things should be ready to list, identify, and make clear his dissension of them.
Beyond the de jure banning of biblical morality by a Bill Clinton appointee, there is another curious political connection in the persecution of Pastor Lively.
SMUG is represented in its suit against Lively by the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR). CCR receives substantial financial support from George Soros’s Open Society Institute and the Ford Foundation. It should come as no surprise that these groups would be the money behind an attack on the First Amendment, the Bible, the freedom to exercise religion, and the freedom to express those beliefs in the public forum.
There are serious First Amendment implications in Ponsor’s ruling, should it be upheld on appeal.
Some Additional Issues that are Out of Control
Here is an example of mainstream media bias. Although unpleasant and astonishing we are surprised that this grave travesty did not receive more coverage than it did. All things being equal an investigation should have been done inasmuch as there are too many coincidences that occurred.
Their name conjures up the most celebrated moment of America’s post-Sept. 11 military campaigns. Now the Navy SEALs belong to a grimmer chapter in history: the most deadly incident for U.S. forces in the 10-year Afghanistan war.
Three months after they killed Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in neighboring Pakistan and cemented their place in military legend, the SEALs suffered a devastating loss when nearly two dozen of the elite troops were among 30 Americans who died when their helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan early Saturday.
You have no doubt heard of the War on Poverty, the War on Drugs, No Child Left Behind, as well as the War on Terrorism. Most of these aforementioned “Wars on…” have been so pronounced because they are in fact, systems of presidential administration’s oversight and procedures. In short these “Wars on…”are typically extremely well-funded and the media attention is phenomenal.
Yet we still have a fundamental problem with the notion that suggests waging a war on illiteracy, terrorism, or poverty. Speaking of which we wonder daily why an administration would instill so many so much into any of these programs – inasmuch as we look at any particular instance, the outcomes of such plans are worse today than just about any other time in history.
In a new survey, four out of five American adults said they’ve struggled financially, and 15 percent of Americans live in poverty. Poverty for example has reached far into American family life. You tell me, are there more or less drugs on the street today than when the war was on? It should also be noted that drug addiction has changed to a measurable degree in the USA. Is your cold acting up again or perhaps you need an antihistamine? Better have a driver’s license or some proof of identification with you or you will not be getting anything similar.
Nah, not even the kids are getting any better – but their schools sure are at grade inflation and especially dumbing down compulsory course work. Fifteen year old students in the United States performed near the middle of the pack. On average 16 other industrialized countries scored above the United States in science, and 23 scored above us in math. The reading scores for the United States had to be tossed due to a printing error.
Just a small bit about the antihistamine story vis-a-vie Voter identification. Do you think that even for a split second that anyone from special interest groups to civil rights advocates would be screaming “That’s Racial Profiling,” when it comes down to purchasing something to assist in relieving harsh symptoms?
Knowing that anatomic differences exist between various Hispanics and Latinos, Asians, and Native Americans one would not be hard pressed to explain why members with these anatomical differences suffer from alcohol inebriation more than others do.
So why even bring that up? Because there are patterns of inebriation while operating vehicles where the data gets skewed naturally. Moreover, we write to inform, assist in making aware, and hopefully learning. It would be irresponsible to know this information and not to pass it on.
We definitely wanted to get to Fast & Furious today; however, that seems as though it is not going to happen. Yet in a tiny summation of events how can it be possible that U.S. Border Patrol officers are killed by weapons procured through the ongoing operation, as well as members of the ATF&E went ballistic and spoke to anyone who would listen including Congress; furthermore, the U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is found in a Contempt of Court citation and has there been anything resolved? No.
