How Stupid Are American High School Students?

How stupid are American high school students today?  Unfortunately, the truth is that our government schools are doing a worse job than most parents would dare to imagine.  Not only are most of our high school students completely unprepared for college, the reality is that most of them have not even been equipped with the necessary skills that they need to function at a very basic level in the real world.  Today, a surprising number of high school students are simply unable to fill out a job application, write a readable essay or balance a checkbook.  If you can believe it, 18.6 percent of all men between the ages of 25 and 34 still live with their parents.  In America today there are millions of children that have never grown up.  Our government schools have failed them and we have failed them.  They are spoiled, lazy and have very few skills to contribute to society.  It is a national disgrace.

The Obama Administration Has Decided That Obama Can Break Any Law He Signs If Obama Decides The Law Is Unconstitutional

Obama signing statementsThe Obama administration has decided that Barack Obama can break any law he signs if Obama decides that the law in not constitutional and that he can do this whenever he wants and that he does not even have to tell anyone what he is doing.  Seriously.  At least George W. Bush informed that American people that he intended to break the laws that he was signing by including a “signing statement” when he objected to something in a bill.  As bad and as unconstitutional as that was, now the Obama administration is taking things to a whole new level by saying that even if Barack Obama signs a bill into law, the Obama administration can still break any law in that bill if the Obama administration decides that it is an “unconstitutional” limit on Obama’s power.

The Senate Health Care Bill: 4 Health Plan Templates – 2 Places To Buy Them – 1 Giant Socialist Mess

Senate Health Care Reform Bill Socialized MedicineRemember the days when Americans could freely contract with private health insurers for whatever level of health coverage that they wanted for themselves and their families? Those days are over. In the health care bill being rammed through the U.S. Senate, Americans are given 4 health care plan templates from which they must choose and 2 places from which they can get that coverage (either their workplace or from a state-based “insurance exchange”). You see, this is the new socialist America – where health care choices are limited and where conformity is required. (Read More...)

The ABCs Of The Copenhagen Climate Change Treaty – A World Government, Brutal New World Taxes And The Creation Of 700 New Bureaucracies

Most Americans seem to think that the world leaders gathered at the U.N. Copenhagen climate change summit are simply discussing ways to help improve the environment. Unfortunately that is not anywhere close to the truth. The draft of the Copenhagen climate change treaty now circulating would represent a giant step towards a “world government”, it would establish brutal new world taxes which would transfer massive amounts of wealth from the United States to other nations, and it would create 700 new bureaucracies to enforce this new treaty. Not only that, but according to the provisions of the treaty, the United States would never be able to get out of it. The wording of the treaty makes it crystal clear that no future president, no future Congress and no future U.S. court would be able to extricate the United States from this horrific agreement.

The Global Warming Religion: Those Without Blind Faith Need Not Apply

The Global Warming ReligionAs world leaders prepare to converge on the U.N. climate change convention in Copenhagen next week, the belief in global warming and climate change is increasingly becoming less science and more religion.  In fact, Al Gore himself, the one being called the “eco-prophet” and “the Moses of this generation” recently admitted as much.  In his new book, “Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis”, Gore focuses on the “spiritual side” of fighting global warming.  As far as allowing the science to persuade people about the threat of global warming goes, Gore puts it very bluntly in his book: “Simply laying out the facts won’t work.”  Why won’t laying out the facts work?  Well, the truth is that as Climategate has revealed, the science is not on the side of the global warming extremists, so blind faith must be called for.
