This is a great article.

Jim Splaine, Of the 8 Million supposedly "NEWLY INSURED " individuals of ObamaCare, howRead More many have actually paid their premiums??? Of these 8 million how many are from the targeted groups for healthcare, as in young adults that will be helping to pay the premiums for the older generation that have medical issues??? If Barry's administration can't provide these numbers then HOW CAN THEY CLAIM OBAMACARE IS A SUCCESS??? >>>> Prior to Kathleen Seblius leaving her post she said the Premiums for ObamaCare would be increasing due to the FACT that most of the 8 Million "NEW SUBSCRIBERS" were elderly and sick and would qualify for the majority of subsidies, which would drive up the costs to others. So AGAIN. How is this a Victory for Barry and his minions, as Barry had promised that his plan would save citizens, on average $2,500.00 per year. His other promise which turned out to be the LIE OF THE CENTURY was that if you Liked your Doctor and Healthcare Plan You Can KEEP THEM!!>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Also Jim how is a deductible of over $7,000.00 per year AFFORDABLE???

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld Michigan's ban on affirmative action in college admissions.
Observor April 23, 2014 at 11:03 am
One of the primary reasons blacks lag in admission to elite colleges without affirmative action isRead More that a disproportionate number of them come out of horror show urban school systems where they are trapped by an unholy alliance of the teacher unions and the Democrat party. The DTC keeps the unions working regardless of incompetence and in return the unions bankroll the DTC with their members' dues money. Affirmative action is just a way to paper over that "inconvenient truth."
Kent Frederick April 23, 2014 at 11:44 am
Let me say something as a graduate of the University of Michigan, who had the tougher road toRead More admission as a non-resident. The problem with affirmative action is how to quantify it. Michigan can have its pick of students from the elite private and public schools in and around Detroit, Chicago, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. Schools in Detroit certainly don't offer the educational opportunities that a school like Detroit Country day, or public high schools elite suburbs like Winnetka, Illinois or Bethesda, Maryland do. But, is a kid from a very rural area in the U.P. any more prepared for U of M than a kid from Detroit? By the same token, a kid from a farm outside of Muskegon represents the same kind of diversity to a kid from Westchester County, New York as someone from Detroit.
Kent Frederick April 23, 2014 at 11:59 am
Observor, It may have been Walt Williams who said that the problem with affirmative action is thatRead More it can set up a kid to fail. Schools that serve large groups of minorities often do not prepare a kid for an elite school, whehter it's a private school like Harvard or Duke, or an elite public school like Michigan or Cal-Berkeley. He suggested that a student, regardless of race or color, should always select a school that is suited to his qualifications. Someone from an inner-city school in California would be better off going to a university in the California State University system, rather than a school in the University of California system. The idea is that he can succeed in college and move on to a successful career. If a person ill-prepared for Berkeley or UCLA attends either of those schools, he has a greater likelihood of flunking out and giving up on higher education. My father attended a 1-room school house until the 6th grade. He then attended a rural junior high and high school. He wound up going to a land-grant university 11 years after graduating from high school, courtesy of the GI Bill. Because of his going to a school that, while good in the field of agriculture, was an average university overall, he was able to move into management eventually transferred to Chicago. So, I attended a very good suburban high school that prepared me for the University of Michigan. If he had gone to a school for which he wasn't prepared, he could very well have dropped out, which would have meant no management opportunity or transfer to Chicago. I know a lot of very successful people who went to small, liberal arts colleges or public universities that aren't of the same caliber as Michigan, UCLA, or the University of Illinois. Yes, going to a school like Michigan, Harvard, Duke, Northwestern, or Stanford can lead to great opportunities. But, going to a non-elite college or university doesn't close the doors on those opportunities.
Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.
CowDung April 23, 2014 at 12:48 pm
Funny how you don't accept the Common Core website as a source for what Common Core is, but you willRead More cling to everything you read on blog sites dedicated to defeating Common Core... It's not an opinion that local schools have control over curricula--it's a fact. Contact your local school board and ask them about it. What exactly is there to 'succeed' at? We are talking about meeting a set of standards--testing will indicate if the schools either meet the standards or they don't. The tests are not intended to determine if the standards themselves are a success or not.

If they did they would know that it is the state who determines how to integrate the standards into their existing standards. http://www.corestandards.org/ The Common Core website provides links to each of the 44 states Department of Education websites which provide information about how the standards are being implemented, assessments etc. http://www.corestandards.org/standards-in-your-state/ The Michigan Department of Education link is http://www.michigan.gov/mde/0,4615,7-140-28753_64839_64848---,00.html or http://www.michigan.gov/mde How the Common Core standards are taught, the curriculum developed, and the material used by teachers is led entirely at the state and local levels. At the most basic level all educational standards are the learning goals for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level in order to move on the next level.

the NH government needs to be very careful with this or they could end up on the wrong side of theRead More very laws they have written.

Joseph Foster needs to be REMOVED FROM OFFICE!!! He is playing Political games when he should beRead More concentrating on doing the job he was hired to do. For instance we have the investigation for the Manchester "Drug Dealer" that was shot and killed in Weare NH during a "drug deal gone bad" this "investigation" has been ongoing for over 8 months. What could possibly take so long. If it was just a citizen on citizen crime someone would have been ARRESTED & CHARGED but since Cops were involved, for some reason they get higher scrutiny. I smell a COVER UP.

ABSOLUTELY jpf22361!!!I could not agree MORE!! It is now Foster running damage control because aRead More highly regarded and respected judge, shined a bright light on what a fascist Foster is and with the window to November looming near by, his chance to appease Hassen is closing fast!! Failing this, not only will his career opportunities be slim but his insurance policy to have the tax payers of NH pay for his defense in the civil suit sure to come, will be gone! I can not wait for the day Jim holds Fosters back side to the flames of the fire!!

Dorie, stowing away on a plane is a crime. And no, the boy himself did not pose a threat. But theRead More fact that he (anyone) can get that close to a plane poses a threat.

april ann April 22, 2014 at 01:30 pm
I agree with B. Dub 100%! How was this kid able to scale a fence and just walk right over to theRead More plane? TSA: for all the harassing you do in the terminal...you ain't all that!! As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this. Thank you lucky stars kid!
