Standing Up For Public Education

"In order to make higher education—and thereby entry into leading positions—
available to every able and industrious (person), the State must provide a thorough
restructuring of our entire public educational system. The courses of study at all
educational institutions are to be adjusted to meet the requirements of practical
life. Understanding of the concept of the State must be achieved through the
schools (teaching of civics) at the earliest age at which it can be grasped. We
demand the education at the public expense of specially gifted children of poor
parents, without regard to the latter’s position or occupation."

The Trouble With Harry

seems to be that he's just plain ethically challenged.

UPDATE!!! --- Harry's not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree either it seems. It will be "interesting" to see what sort of a sinecure is found for Bloy, who's announced he's not going to give Burnaby-Lougheed voters a chance to fire his sorry backside out the door in '013 (or whenever), how his falling on his sword to protect the Boss will weigh against his appalling stupidity in leaking the email ... fascinating.

Hats off to Alex G Tsakumis for outstanding investigative journalism and guts, guts, guts.

News Flash! Bama Don't Like White Folks!

With all due respect to the late Andrew Breitbart I can't believe he seriously thought this old Obama college tape thing would amount to a cup of spit.

Despite the best efforts of some GOP media stalwarts like Sean Hannity to get some outrage going over the 'revelation' that student Bama was an enormous fan of hate spewing bigot prof Derrick Bell, the overwhelming reaction has been one big yawn, because a) Bama hating white folks just isn't news, and b) hating white folks is okay anyway, lots of white folks do themselves.

Now, maybe if Barry were to get drunk and drive a car into a river, abandoning the woman not his wife in the passenger seat to drown while he ran home and called his lawyer ... oh wait, never mind.
