Obama’s “No Strategy” Strategy

Home - by - August 30, 2014 - 18:00 America/New_York - 23 Comments

Dianny Rants

Does Obama not have a strategy for ISIS?

I say he absolutely does.

You know, appeasement is a strategy.

Aid and comfort to the enemy is a strategy.

“Leading from Behind” is a strategy of surrender.

Barack Obama’s strategy has been all along to undermine the sovereignty and strength of the United States of America.

It isn’t that he doesn’t have a strategy. Full Story

How Do You Prepare Children For Real Life?

Home - by - August 27, 2014 - 21:45 America/New_York - 15 Comments

.

I don’t think you prepare your children to face the life they are going to lead as an adult by letting them avoid the consequences of not meeting deadlines.

But one Texas school district is going to gamble with children’s lives by doing just that.

from Breitbart

DALLAS, Texas — Every kid imagines a school without test scores, grades, or even deadlines. Now, the Denton Independent School District (ISD) located north of Dallas is bringing that dream to life through a new grading policy that’s guaranteed to rock the report card for students in grade 6-12. The district voted on it last Spring and now it is rolling out in the name of accountability and retention.

That is right, it is all about what they remember, if they remember, because under the new guidelines they do not have to remember. Missing work will not get a big fat zero either. A student gets an “incomplete” and it is all okay as long as the work gets completed sometime during the nine-week grading period. Also, tests can be taken and retaken throughout the year. The highest grade will be recorded. Full Story

Another Federal Grab for Power?

CBC Members Push Police Czar Idea

From Politico

cummingsRep. Elijah Cummings, along with other members of the Congressional Black Caucus, sent a letter Monday to President Barack Obama, urging the administration to pursue changes to local law enforcement structure to “prevent more Fergusons,” including a federal czar to oversee local law enforcement.

“The administration must quickly establish a national commission to review existing police policies and practices,” the letter reads. “And identify the best policies and practices that can prevent more Fergusons and vastly improve policing in communities across the nation.”

In addition to the commission, the letter calls for the appointment of a federal czar within the Justice Department to monitor and oversee local police departments that receive federal funding.

Democrats at Odds with Obama over Executive Amnesty

Home - by - August 26, 2014 - 18:30 America/New_York - 16 Comments

by Dan Riehl, Breitbart

ObamaCloseUpAPIf you want to know where a Democrat stands on the issue of immigration, all you need ask is if they have to face the voters in less than a deep blue state in November.

With Obama contemplating what would amount to an “executive amnesty,” the rhetoric between threatened Democrats and the White House is heating up.

“This is an issue that I believe should be addressed legislatively, and not through executive order,” said Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina.

“I, too, am frustrated with the partisanship in Washington,” Sen. Mark Pryor (D., Ark.) said in a statement. “But that doesn’t give the president carte blanche authority to sidestep Congress when he doesn’t get his way.”

Hamas Terrorism: What You Can’t See on the UN’s Maps of Gaza

Home - by - August 26, 2014 - 17:45 America/New_York - Be first to Comment!

From IDF Blog

The UN published several maps showing the aftermath of Operation Protective Edge. The maps mark damaged buildings with red dots scattered throughout Gaza. But this map tells only half the story: Hamas used many of these buildings – including houses, hospitals and schools – as sites to launch rockets and carry out other attacks. In many cases, the IDF struck buildings in order to stop Hamas’ violence. This means that the red dots on the UN’s maps represent more than destruction. They show the many cases in which terrorists attacked Israel from heavily populated areas in Gaza.

How High Can Unemployment Figures Go?

Uncontrolled Immigration __ Is It Selfish Not To Want To Commit Suicide?

 

by Asylum Watch

President Obama wants amnesty for illegal immigrants and he is threatening to use Executive Orders to make it happen if Congress doesn’t act. Democrats want amnesty and so do many Republicans and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. It’s only those heartless conservatives that want to throw the illegals out. Bloomberg News believes that trying to control the border is “Borderline Crazy”. Even Zero Hedge has a long article in which the author believes he has debunked all the reasons conservatives have to be against amnesty. The truth is, however, that immigrants, both legal and illegal, are replacing Americans in the workforce at an alarming rate.  If that’s not bad enough, the robots are coming to take your jobs.

I’ve written several posts on the impact that robotics and software will have on the jobs market of the future. Please go to the last article link above and take the time to watch a very well done video  “showing the encroachment of robots and automation ever further into the modern workplace”.  The video is 15 minutes long and even though most Asylum Watch readers are of an age they may not be directly impacted by robots and automation, I encourage you to down load this video and insist that your children and grandchildren watch it and think about the implications this trend will have on their lives. If the producers of this video are right, and I believe they are, they will see in the not to distant future that unemployment rates of 30% or 40% or more will be the new normal.

Robots will eventually take over my job. I score student essays. Written essays. In English.

For the last several years, Artificial Intelligence has been in the works to replace my industry. The first few tests failed astronomically, but they are still working on it. My concern is how to teach the AI to recognize sarcasm, humor (all types) and bull shit. It’s even hard for some humans to grasp the nuances of the language even when trained properly. Full Story

The Media and the Mob

Home - by - August 23, 2014 - 14:00 America/New_York - 9 Comments

.

by Thomas Sowell

Those of us who admit that we were not there, and do not know what happened when Michael Brown was shot by a policeman in Ferguson, Missouri, seem to be in the minority.

We all know what has happened since then — and it has been a complete disgrace by politicians, the media and mobs of rioters and looters. Despite all the people who act as if they know exactly what happened, nevertheless when the full facts come out, that can change everything.

This is why we have courts of law, instead of relying on the media or mobs. But politics is undermining law.

Project Anti Sissy Girls

I just spent the week with my 11 year old nephew. He is a normal kid brought up by conservative Christian parents. His mother was beaming with pride when telling me of a debate she overheard with a classmate about evolution and creation. He was calmly explaining how science does not prove evolution and his classmate was screaming and calling him stupid like a dutiful liberal.

He has a very active mind, as most kids his age, and came up with the following that he posted on his whiteboard at home:

I’m proud of him and think I’ll join his project!
