Doug Wilder at Romney Fundraiser

A potentially large change of events as former Virginia Governor Doug Wilder appeared at a Romney fundraiser today. This came after his criticism of Joe Biden for his "chains" comments the other day. According to Pajamas Media, Wilder (D-VA) was a surprise guest and was introduced by current Governor Bob McDonnell at the fundraiser in Richmond, VA.

Wilder had said that slavery was not something for Biden to joke about:

'The important thing I got out of this was Biden separated himself from what he accused the people of doing. As a matter of fact, what he said is they are going to do something to y’all, not to me. Not us. So he was still involved with that separate American.

'As far as I am concerned, the President would not associate himself with those remarks. And I expect as the days go forward there will be more clarity associated with what the president feels about what Joe Biden said.
This could be a big deal-- and another indication that Joe Biden is hurting the Obama campaign.

The original Biden comments:

Education is the Foundation of the Future

Have you ever asked yourself, "How can Progressives like President Obama hate America? How can anyone who was raised in the most free and prosperous society in the History of the world believe America is an imperialistic power and the source of evil?"
If we can’t understand our adversary we may defeat them, but we will never know what it is that motivated them. This lack of understanding leaves us open to assault by the same forces in the future. If we wish not only to defeat Barack Obama and the forces of Progressivism in the November elections but also to set America on the path to restoration we must understand the root cause of the Progressive delusion and modern Liberalism which Michael Savage has correctly labeled a mental illness, and I consider a Socially Transmitted Disease.

If you want to understand something it is necessary to learn where it came from and how it came to be. Even if President Obama was educated partially in his adopted country of Indonesia he is a prime example of the assembly-line progressive education that has become the norm in America today: bash America at every chance and cram the idea of a living constitution and the necessity for government intervention in every aspect of daily life.

We’ve all heard horror stories of the anti-American bilge being pumped into our youth in today’s schools, so the following personal experiences shouldn’t shock anyone too much.
As an educator I participated in a program that combined college and high school classes so that students could earn credit towards their high school diploma and at the same time work on an Associate Degree. I was happy to work in this program, and I helped many hard working students earn their Associates at the same time they earned their high school diploma giving them a decided advantage when they went on for their Bachelor degree.

During the course of my years in the trenches of blended education I was in control of the college side of the class; however, I had no authority to stop the blatant dissemination of Progressive propaganda that made up the totality of some teachers’ curriculum. While in the classroom I strive to present material in such a way as to lead students in the direction of critical thinking. I would present both sides and urge students to evaluate and come to their own conclusions. Many times after a semester of teaching Political Science students would come up and ask, "Now that the class is over tell us, which are you a conservative or a liberal?"

Many of my high school teacher colleagues were not so subtle. Here are two examples that were more the rule than the exception in many classes:
1. One Political Science class had the following assignment; watch Fahrenheit 9/11by Michael Moore and then write an essay on how many ways President Bush lied to trick America into an unjust war.
2. In a History class the students were assigned to read Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle and then write an essay on the dehumanizing effects of capitalism.

The list of such blatant and crude attempts to mold our children into good little Progressives that I witnessed would fill a book on how not to teach, but this is nothing new. I am sixty three years old and though not as out-in-the-open or in-your-face I was subjected to the same type of illiberal liberalism when I was a youngster in school.
In grade school I did encounter one History teacher who had been in the profession since before my father was born. She still thought it a good thing to teach American History as an objective subject instead of a vehicle for her own agenda. She inspired students to look at the evidence and think. She however was the exception. From Math to English, from Geography to History teachers were constantly extolling the benefits of government social programs and depicting America as a world-class bully marching around imposing its will on poor little nations that couldn’t protect themselves.
In high school I was suspended for accusing a Social Studies teacher of being a communist. Years later he admitted that he in fact had been a communist since the forties. Another teacher rejected any History paper that he felt was too patriotic which he dismissed as jingoism. A teacher of Russian spent more time in class extolling the virtues of the USSR than teaching the language. When I complained about this forty five minute daily propaganda session I was again suspended. All of this took place back in the 1960s. This isn’t a new problem.
The Progressives realized long ago that if they could take over the nation’s education system they could raise up generations of Americans with no conception of the uniqueness of America as the world’s bastion of freedom and liberty. Today we see the fruit of this campaign: legions of voters ready to throw away our heritage for a government check. The descendants of the Founders are willing to surrender their freedom to strive for the best in exchange for the security of just enough to get by.
So as the wisest woman I have ever known, my wife asks me, "What can we do now?"
Back in the early 90s we decided that what we needed to do was go to school so that we could become teachers. Neither of us wants to impose our ideas on others, but we do want to present the materials in an objective manner and help our students acquire the critical thinking skills necessary to be informed citizens. Whenever a student asks me to figure out what their grade is during a semester I tell them, "If you give a man a fish he will eat for a day.  If you teach him to fish he can eat forever." I then proceed to teach them how to find an average and how to translate that into a letter grade.
What can we do now? We can’t all become teachers but we can all become involved in our local school boards. We can all do our due diligence and find out what is being taught at our local schools, and we can follow the procedures to correct what is wrong and implement what is right. One thing is for sure if we do not regain control of our schools we will lose the future.

Our leaders are leading us down the primrose path to collectivism. Our education establishment is conditioning America to accept it. Step-by-step, inch-by-inch we have strayed from a federal republic operating on democratic principles with liberty and justice for all to a centralized bureaucracy dispensing cradle-to-grave loot taken from producers and redistributed to non-producers. We may have gotten here step-by-step but we are not too many steps away from one step too many. Barack Obama has stated that his goal is to fundamentally transform America. From stimulus slush finds, shadow governments, and imperial edicts he is systematically remaking us into a centralized state based on social democracy and wealth redistribution.

In 1962 the leader of the socialist slave camp we knew as the USSR, Nikita Khrushchev, said "The United States will eventually fly the Communist red flag…The American people will raise it themselves.  We can't expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism."

Education has led the way to this precipice and only education can lead our way back. If we don’t learn from our mistakes and once again begin building up America through education we may learn that Khrushchev was right.

Did we win the Cold War defeating an enemy dedicated to our destruction to end up proving the wisdom of a cartoon character, "We have met the enemy and he is us"?

Monday, August 13, 2012


 Although it looks like it, the title of this article is not an eye chart.  It is actually a new name for an old entitlement program.  Since Lyndon Johnson's Great Society the program has been referred to as Medicare. However, when Paul Ryan (R- Frozen Tundra) released his budget road map in early 2011, the Democrats began referring to Medicare as "Medicareasweknowit."  Nancy Pelosi said, "The Republicans want to end Medicareasweknowit."  Barack Obama repeated the Medicareasweknowit mantra. For a while the Democrats said little else, except "It's George Bush's fault."

Let's be frank: Medicare [as-we-know-it] will cease to exist in its present form anyway.  Medicare, as well as Medicaid and Social Security (or Medicaidasweknowit and Socialsecurityasweknowit, if you like) will simply run out of money.  Yet, regarding entitlement reform, the Democrats have modified an old adage.  They say, "If it's broke, don't fix it."

Now that Mitt Romney has selected Paul Ryan as his running mate, the "end Medicareasweknowit" campaign is back - and on stilts! How many times in the last three days have we heard a Democrat utter that Paul Ryan wants to end Medicareasweknowit?  Obamacare dealt with Medicare by making no structural changes and relying on price controls instead. Paying less for medical services will have the effect of doctors offering less of it. They don't make it up in volume.

Perhaps Obama can deal with skyrocketing Medicare costs by encouraging Americans to take up bad habits - smoking, excessive drinking and much more couch time. This could actually become a new federal program - AGED (Assisting Grandma's Early Demise). Massive federal dollars could be spent on AGED programs to encourage bad habits, especially smoking.  If all Americans get back into the smoking habit, we'll all die sooner.  No seniors, no Medicare problem.  This will work for Social Security and Medicaid also. By implementing AGED, the Democrats can keep Medicareasweknowit.  There won't be anyone around to avail themselves of it.

Who is Thomas A. Caffall?

The Huffington Post is reporting that there is a suspicion that Thomas A. Caffall was the Texas A&M shooter. According to his mother, she believes that her son might have been the person to kill a police officer and a civilian.

According to the article Caffall is 35 years old and his registered address appears to match that of the shooter in the case.

Weaver said her son had been having "difficulties" with his mental health in recent years.

"The minute I saw the TV I knew it was him," she said. "I've been that worried about him."

She added that she was horrified at the loss of life. "If you're going to commit suicide, why take all these other people with you?" she said.

UPDATE: Here is his facebook. And according to LinkedIn, he's an Engineering specialist.

Paul Ryan's Workout

Well, it appears taht the Google gods have a real thing for Paul Ryan's physical fitness regimen. There's almost as many hits for pictures of him shirtless than there are about his actual record. I guess a lot of people want to see what the 42 year old Congressman from Wisconsin does to keep himself fit.

As a matter of fact, he's a fitness fanatic, and is in great shape. His body fat percentage is very low. So how did he get this way?

P90x and Insanity, which has left him one of the fittest members of Congress.
