Unbuilding (?) the GOP Base

 
Collectively, the GOPe is a dang fool. They need to learn how to understand the difference between foolishness and wisdom, uncommon sense and common idiocy, intelligence and ignorance, a better life for your children versus equally poor socialism, freedom versus subjugation, economic power versus eternal stagnation, opportunity versus spirit zapping welfare, picking oneself up by one’s bootstraps and accomplishing whatever your dreams can imagine versus taking whatever the government is willing to toss your way. Understanding these differences would be a good first step towards being able to explain them to the electorate.

Common Core: It Stinks

 
 
Like most people, I heard about the 2008 Race To The Top (RTT) grants the Obama administration was doling out, but I didn’t understand it, other than to know it as yet another attempt by the feds to do something about education. They have done this before, and with the same predictable results. More federal spending with the same mediocre results.

April Fools Day: How Appropriate

 
Today's the day individuals are required to have purchased O'care, or O'care approved, health insurance. I wonder how many people out there are now wearing metaphoric sandwich signs with the word Fool emblazoned on them, bow and stern, fore and aft. It's enough to make one down a gallon of 'port' and self-inflict some upside-the-head pain with a 'starboard'. Ouch. That's gonna leave a mark.

Possible Motive For Missing Malaysian 777?

Yikes. Talk about a conspiracy theory. If the well-worn admonition to "follow the money" holds up, one can see that there's a ton of money behind this theory of what could have happened to that flight. It speaks more to the possible why though, as opposed to the what. What made it disappear? How did that disappearance occur? Who knows? This article is more like a who-done-it rather than a how-was-it-done. Of course it's only a theory postulated by the writers involved in it. We are not those writers, but certainly found it interesting. So might you. I read about it at beforeitsnews. They link to some other sources from there as well.
