Forward Back Across the Bridge to the 21st Century

Written yesterday: Today, in Charlotte, NC, the Democrats will convene their convention to re-nominate Barack Obama as President of the United States. There are two ironies they will do their best to ignore. First, four years after a concerted effort to paint Bill Clinton as a racist, Barack Obama depends on Bill Clinton’s presence and blessings to secure his re-election. [It is interesting that the same man who once told Ted Kennedy that "Obama Would Have Been Carrying Our Bags a Few Years Ago", who admitted to his affair with Monica Lewinsky, who was impeached for perjury, who was credibly accused of assaulting or raping several women and who had a "bimbo eruption team", now stands to speak during the "Republican War on Women" convention where Ted Kennedy, who left his female "friend" Mary Joe Kopechne to drown, will be honored.] Second, and most importantly, after a several month effort to claim the Republicans want to go backwards, the Democrats will rely on a bunch of former Governors and a President elected two decades ago promising a bridge to the 21st century to make a case for their slogan “Forward”.
A public university in Colorado may have violated state law by offering students course credit if they volunteered with President Obama’s re-election campaign. A blog post on the Adams State University website billed the opportunity as a “12 week long organizing internship for the Obama Campaign.”
Both the blog post and the course are now gone. The course was canceled due to lack of interest, according to the university. The blog post was taken down earlier this week after a conservative student blog, Campus Reform, reported on it.
The course may have been in violation of the Colorado Fair Campaign Practices Act,

GM has increased its manufacturing capacity in China by 55 percent since emerging from bankruptcy thanks to a $50 billion bailout from taxpayers. An important piece of that increased capacity has taken place in Changchun, Jilin Province in China.

A rebellion is developing in Texas against a plan by a school district in San Antonio that would monitor the exact location and activities of all students at all times through RFID chips they are being ordered to wear. 


Thirty percent of America’s high school students drop out and never graduate. Fewer than half of the nation’s black and Hispanic students graduate on time from high school.
The scandalous bottom line here is that more than 1 million students drop out of American public schools every year. That works out to more than 6,000 students every day and one student every 26 seconds.
Education in America, particularly big-city education, is in crisis. Historians are already describing the decline of public education as a threat to the nation’s economy and military. And when the tragic scale of harm to racial minorities is considered, the education crisis is aptly labeled as the greatest civil rights challenge of the 21st century.
I am the host of a half-hour video documentary, produced by education reform activist Kyle Olson, telling the story of how a Democrat — Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel  — is risking his political life by fighting the city’s teachers’ union to improve schools. (Take a look at
Several pro-Israel sections of the 2008 Democratic Party platform have been removed from the 2012 platform—on Jerusalem, Palestinian refugees, and Hamas. The new platform represents another shift by the Obama Democrats toward the Palestinian position on key issues in the peace process.
For Jerusalem, the new platform has been brought into line with the Obama administration’s policy of not recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and supporting its division
-Remarkably, the Democrats began their convention with a video that proclaimed, “The government is the only thing we all belong to.”
Earlier today, we told you that the document fails to mention Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a proclamation that was previously touted by the party. And now, in an even more shocking revelation, CBN News is reporting that the Democrats have removed mentions of “God” from the document as well.
This is a departure from the past. In 2008, the platform read (emphasis added), “We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.”
With the words “God-given” removed, the 2012 platform sticks to a more secular script:
Asked by Parade magazine, "What do you hope to accomplish in your second term?” First Lady Michelle Obama said she wants to "impact the nature of food in grocery stores" with the aim of cutting sugar, fat and salt.
Daniel James Devine reports on the horrible treatment that a Wisconsin teacher received at the hands of her fellow union members during the now thankfully past recall effort of Governor Scott Walker. This teacher openly supported Walker and was spat upon, cursed, shown the sort of violent hatred that makes one despair for the poor woman’s personal safety.
Again, though, this is how unions operate. They don’t work on true American principles of joining in a public debate, offering their solutions like adults, and then peacefully accepting the verdict of the voters in the spirit of the democratic process. No, what unions do is intimidate, arm twist, attack, and commit violence against those that disagree with them. Quite un-American, really and this is what happened to this poor teacher in Wisconsin.
Bu maybe things are turning? Maybe people are sick and tired of the thuggery perpetrated by unions. At least it seems so in Wisconsin as the teachers union is losing support, losing members, and losing millions in dues.

Obama Economy Leaves Women Behind

Unemployment rates of women, young women, and single women have all increased since O took office.  [It has been reported that women who work for the President himself are underpaid as well.  Oops!]
Is this a great country or what????

The 1 in 7 Americans currently on food stamps certainly appreciate the opportunity to dine on lobster and porterhouse steak at YOUR EXPENSE. What's for dinner at your house tonight?
