This is a great rant by Mark Levin, who comments here on the fact that Hank Aaron put all republicans into the KKK category. Mark tears into the racist comments by Hank, and I agree with him….when you think of all the WHITE republican fans that made his career……well, I would get rid of his card too.
Obama has used all the famous black (and stupid) people he can find, to attack white conservatives for him. In the name of, “See, they don’t like me because I’m black.”
It’s getting disgusting, and Mark goes after them.
So, Congratulations Mark! You win the Nobody’s Fool award for the week!.
In your own words: “You’re a GREAT American!”
Thanks for saying what so many of us feel, and you do it every night.
Have you ever been just writing along in Microsoft Word, and then right before your eyes, you watch your words disappear? I have. More than once. Most of the time it was when I was writing some insidious opinion on Obama, or Clintons, or the Bushes.
I figured I was going nuts–until I came across this article the other day:
The journalist Luke Harding’s book, The Snowden Files, came out earlier this month. But judging by Mr. Harding’s assertion that his words were somehow deleting themselves while he wrote about the NSA, it’s a wonder it came out at all.
While he was working on the book about Edward Snowden’s exploits, Mr. Harding writes in the Guardian, the sentences he wrote about the NSA would periodically garble or delete themselves.
From the Guardian:
Something odd happened. The paragraph I had just written began to self-delete. The cursor moved rapidly from the left, gobbling text. I watched my words vanish. When I tried to close my OpenOffice file the keyboard began flashing and bleeping.
Over the next few weeks these incidents of remote deletion happened several times. There was no fixed pattern but it tended to occur when I wrote disparagingly of the NSA. All authors expect criticism. But criticism before publication by an anonymous, divine third party is something novel. I began to leave notes for my secret reader. I tried to be polite, but irritation crept in. Once I wrote: “Good morning. I don’t mind you reading my manuscript – you’re doing so already – but I’d be grateful if you don’t delete it. Thank you.” There was no reply.
A month later the mysterious reader – him, her, they? – abruptly disappeared.
Well, I can’t tell you how I felt when I read this. I am certainly not as important a character as the reporter that is writing about Snowdon. and yet, years ago, when I was in contact with a young women in D.C., whose father was in the CIA, she all of a sudden told me she couldn’t talk to me anymore. We were really great friends. This was back when Bill Clinton was President. I have wondered ever since if I struck someone somewhere in Georgetown as being “dangerous.”
I do still have one reader there according to my stats.
But, I’m not special in any way. I happen to believe the government has a dossier on every “patriotic” American, and it’s no conspiracy when Homeland Security even lists us as a threat.
Basically, it’s a form of censorship. And now that Obama has given the internet to the world, something, which by the way, he had NO authority to do, this kind of thing will become the norm. Wait till China and Russia put their two cents in.
The truth is, the liberals have been desperate to silence the internet for many years because it really is the last place that the normal citizen’s voice can be heard.
If you think our government does NOT want to censure us…look at what the I.R.S. did to the Tea Party groups.
Let’s go back: Remember the E-PARASITE legislation, a bill proposed by Congress that was formerly known as the Senate-backed PROTECT IP Act? It was intended to punish copyright infringement–as well as toy with its definitions to a harrowing degree. Websites would be guilty until proven innocent. Search engines would punish you to the dustbin of the superinternet basement. Obama’s FCC Diversity Czar, Mark Lloyd was on record for praising Hugo Chavez for shutting down private media companies.
FROM CONSERVATIVE: Robert McChesney is the founder of Free Press, a group with close ties to the Obama administration. He has ADMITTED what the REAL GOAL is with Net Neutrality: “At the moment, the battle over network neutrality is not to completely eliminate the telephone and cable companies. We are not at that point yet. But the ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.” emphasis added
And now that Obama has given the internet over to other countries, he endangers our very lives. What’s bad about this? Well for a start. Censorship. Internet Taxes—and worst of all, he is putting us in more danger of a cyber attack by our enemies
Brad Blakeman (Pentagon) cautioned that he is more concerned about the situation today than he was in 2010, saying “I had the opportunity to meet with Dr. [Robert] Kahn, one of the inventors of the Internet at the Pentagon, as well as Admiral McConnell, about the Internet and cyber-attacks. And our country is hit tens of thousands of times a day through the Internet in cyber-attacks both on our private sector and public sector. “The information we are able to gather through the type of control we have on the internet is one of the reasons why America is safer than we would be if we were under international control. This is a matter of national security, as well as economic security.”
As for whether this could lead to some type of UN-sponsored international Internet tax, Blakeman said, “Absolutely. They could set rates. You know, we give out the IP addresses as the domain names for relatively small amounts of money, which is then passed on to the consumer through programs they have through their Internet providers. The cost of it is so low and now we’re going to be beholden to an international body who’s going to start determining rates or worse yet, access to the Internet. Who gets a domain name? Who gets an IP number?”
But go figure: the big boys love it: Google, Zuckerface, Verizon, AT&T, and Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller argued that the transition will help ensure the Internet remains free and open.
Right…if Mr. One World Government thinks it’s a good idea, that should make us all feel better.
For now, we might be safe. But AFTER the next elections…I wonder.
My friends amforatas in Australia thinks that the internet will always be free…that the internet will change the world, and no government will be able to control it.
I hope he’s right, because as much as Hillary Clinton and Obama stand up and give great speeches about ‘freedom of speech’ it’s all a ruse.
They mean…and want..to control it all. We’ve seen the internet crushed by dictators in other countries, could it happen here?
The FCC is directly interfering with our free market system, by giving bureaucrats power over Internet carriers. The Net Neutrality Act seems to be part of a larger effort by the Obama administration to exert power and speech restrictions over the entirety of the Internet, what you can see when you are on it, and how you access it. However, what we have today is a fundamentally broken system that funnels most of the wealth and most of the power into the hands of the ultra-wealthy and the gigantic corporations that they own.
I gave a factual account of what the president was going to do and sure enough now in 2014, safely re-elected, our internationalist president is seeking to give our most important precious asset, the Internet, to basically international control. The United States developed it with taxpayer dollars at DARPA, which is at the Pentagon, as an open architecture networking. We didn’t keep it for ourselves, we monetized it and were able to make countries a lot smarter, a lot freer and now the president seeks to be beholden. Now they’re going to have a say beyond their borders. This is one of the worst acts that a President of the United States could ever do because it’s so destructive to our country.”
And Nobody Wins, when one traitorous man, gives away what was not his to give…
I felt SO sorry for the people who had to listen and watch Obama today. Knowing that at the same time, he had sent soldiers to attack a farmer….on our own soil.
If only John Bonehead would stop crying at Taco Bell, and start impeachment proceedings.
Nobody Knows—how Al Sharpton, just overnight—- became an American hero. It seems, he has been the black knight in shining armor, working overtime for the FBI…putting in jail, the most notorious of criminals by going underground:
The former mob snitch has become a regular in the White House, where he has met with the 44th president in the East Room, the Roosevelt Room, and the Oval Office. He has also attended Obama Christmas parties, speeches, policy announcements, and even watched a Super Bowl with the First Family (an evening the man has called “one of the highlights of my life”). During these gatherings, he has mingled with cabinet members, top Obama aides, military leaders, business executives, and members of Congress. His former confederates were a decidedly dicier lot: ex-convicts, extortionists, heroin traffickers, and mob henchmen. The man’s surreptitious recordings, FBI records show, aided his government handlers in the successful targeting of powerful Mafia figures with nicknames like Benny Eggs, Chin, Fritzy, Corky, and Baldy Dom.
Yes, Al was known to hang around the deep underworld, where the black neighborhoods deal in drugs, guns, and the mafia controls it all. So, what did Al Sharpton do to go from being just another cocaine hustler to the top ranks of the democratic party, rolling in riches and his own TV show?
Nobody knows, but Nobody Wonders why it took Sharpton so many years to work on this, and what crime he committed to be turned. One thing is certain, we never will know.
Are AL’s race bating days, and gangster ties over?
Can a rat fly to the moon and fart rainbows?
And speaking of the underworld…..
According to the New York Post, five-pointers believe:
Black people are the fathers and mothers of civilization, white men are the devil, the Christian god is nothing more than a ghost and only a small percentage of people understand the world. “The rationale is that the black man is God and created the universe, and is physically stronger and intellectually stronger and more righteous naturally,” says Michael Muhammad Knight, an author of two books on the radical group. “Whiteness is weak and wicked and inferior — basically just an errant child who needs to be corrected.”
Since Beyonce and Jay Z are bosom buddies with Barack Obama, Nobody Knows if Obama is a five-pointer too. But if you judge a man by the company he keeps: then Obama could very well be, a racist, mob Don, Muslim thug, with a big drug addiction.
Nobody Knows— Obama is searching for brownie points for democrats, so he has announced two important things he has on his mind to put in his executive do to list: Cow Flatulence, and women’s wages.
Obama intends to cut cow flatulence by 25 percent, and raise women’s wages from 77 cents on the dollar to 100 percent
Although the White House does not pay women equal, according to Jay Carney, they are very transparent about it, because not all women in the White House work the same hours…
Got that? Like Obamacare: Obama is exempt from his own laws. He can pay women in the White House less, and ignore the tremendous cow flatulence within the White House Walls. How he plans to stop cows from farting is beyond anyone’s guess. But I don’t think we want to know, do you?
Nobody Knows—: Recently there was a report that the top 1percent is not doing as well as the top .01 percent.
Foreign profits held overseas by U.S. corporations to avoid taxes at home nearly doubled from 2008 to 2013 to top $2.1 trillion, said a private research firm’s report, prompting a call for reform by the Senate’s top tax law writer. Conglomerate General Electric Co had the biggest pile of earnings stored abroad, at $110 billion, the firm said. Next were software maker Microsoft Corp, with $76.4 billion; drugmakers Pfizer Inc, with $69 billion, and Merck & Co Inc, with $57.1 billion; and high-tech group Apple Inc, with $54.4 billion, it said.
And Nobody Knows why these corporations can get by with this, but as long as the top 1 percent keeps getting hit with high taxes, the politicians, who get money from the .01 percent, won’t do a thing.
Nobody Knows— what’s becoming of the women lately. A stenographer named Dianne Reidy, went crazy on the House floor, while the House was voting to raise the debt limit:
She was taken out of the chamber, but not before shouting, “He will not be mocked! You cannot serve two masters! This is not one nation under God, It never was, had it been, the Constitution would not have been written by Freemansons, the go against god. “
And then, there was THIS women, who lost it in a Florida McDonalds
Nobody Knows what caused these women’s outbursts, but no doubt, it was because they were both being paid 77 cents on the dollar.
Next week: We will explore why Nobody Knows if Noah really talked to rocks.
Evidently, the X- Presidential husband of the woman who will be running for President, sat with the X-Presidential brother of the brother who will be running for President at the NCAA Basketball championships. The country is divided, but the Clinton’s and the Bushes get along fabulously.
Do we care? Many people do, so I copied and pasted this Nobody’s response to the picture–people are finally realizing: the frog is cooking, and the pot is now boiling:
Its called the NWO / illuminati. Doesnt matter the political party, they are just the faces of the NWO, the real power brokers are in the shadows. They have a master plan that they have been executing for 100s of years. They put a republican (non-conservatives) in to achieve certain goals, a liberal for other goals. They start civil and world wars but fund both sides and pick the winner. Divide and Conquer us by race or gender or sexual orientation, destroy our currency, eliminate national sovereignty with global central banks, create a permanent dependent class that keeps them into power, and takes away our freedom 1 small piece at a time. Its called Tyranny. Entertainment, Sports, Politics, Banking, its all interwoven. That photo reminds me of Caesar, with his entourage. Just they don’t cry for blood in the area (yet) 2016 Jeb Bush vs. Hillary, nothing new here… TIME SPACE
FIRST UP: Mozilla. Which runs a search engine called Firefox. It seems, the company’s owners found out too late, that it’s appointed CEO, Brendan Eich, had committed an unspeakable crime:
He helped set up an Al-Qaeda training camp in California—no wait. That was a California Senator.
No, Brenda did something evidently much worse…he donated money to outlaw same-sex marriage, which in California is a crime far exceeding setting up Al-Qaeda training camps.
Mozilla co-founder Brendan Eich is stepping down as CEO following protests over his support of a gay marriage ban in California. At issue was Eich’s $1,000 donation in 2008 to the campaign to pass California’s Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment that outlawed same-sex marriages.
HIS boss, who happens to be a woman, said this when she found out:
“We didn’t act like you’d expect Mozilla to act. We didn’t move fast enough to engage with people once the controversy started. We’re sorry. We must do better,” Baker wrote.
She said that Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech and that “figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.”
Yes, MS Baker just can’t seem to get the concept of free speech, which is why I’m immensely proud of the fact that I never downloaded Firefox, even though Kim Komando (I really like her) suggested it. I went with my gut: Google and Microsoft do enough damage to a computer, why add a third?
A safety watchdog group has released a study that shows General Motors (GM) airbag failures resulted in the death of some 300 people, eight times the number that GM stated.
GM said there had been 12 deaths in 34 cars; the study shows 303 in 1.6 million vehicles from the vehicles GM recalled last month. GM did not recall the cars until February, despite learning of problems with the ignition switch in 2001 and issuing related service bulletins to dealers with suggested remedies in 2005.
So what did GM do? They immediately promoted the smartest and most innocent looking woman they could find in their stack of employees and made her CEO to take the heat: Mary Barra. And Mary went before Congress to explain:
Barra, who has been CEO for less than three months, fielded questions from the House Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee for two hours, avoiding any obvious gaffes and keeping her cool but also largely ducking specific answers, saying an internal investigation is underway into why it took GM so long to address ignition-switch problems first detected in 2001 this year.
She was battered for speaking “gobbledygook,” thumped for not firing an engineer who apparently concealed a change to the potentially deadly switches, and blasted because GM made an economic decision to keep the flawed component in production while knowing it didn’t meet GM standards.
Mozilla…basically hurt, not only one guy, who didn’t deserve to be ostracized for his own opinions about sex, but their bottom line. Many conservatives are going to stop using Firefox, and they will lose customers, and Mozilla might end up on the not very popular proverbial floor looking for CNN.
GM on the other hand, has killed 300 people with their negligence, and no one has been fired.(Proof that it’s been nationalized)
BUT…having said that…they are small peanuts compared to how many people will die due to the new Obamacare “less is more” healthcare law.
But, I know, I’m always doing this at the end of my Nobody’s Perfect opinions. So…
I pick GM.
If a bunch of gay people running Mozilla want to have only gay liberals working for their company, hey, doesn’t bother me. It’s a free country, and it’s a good thing now we know we don’t have to use your product.
But, GM…was bailed out by the American people…and murder is murder, no matter if it comes from a greedy bottom line, or a population-culling healthcare law.
So, to make ourselves forget both these companies…enjoy the SNL skit on what all scumbags do, whether they are big multinational companies or corrupt government officials…. when they are caught being…scumbags. They lie.
I could not for the life of me find it on Youtube, but you can see the SNL video HERE. It’s worth the watch!
We’ve all heard Obama say “It’s the law of the land. It’s here to stay!” as often as he said, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”
Which is exactly why, we should all keep fighting this….it’s a death sentence. It’s a holocaust.
And the worst is yet to come.

It’s official: Jeb Bush, who got a big interview on Fox this morning, is not running, but why then do we have to see Jeb Bush for a whole hour on Fox Sunday, if he’s not running? He’s been EVERYWHERE on cable.
I don’t know about you, but politicians getting hour-long programs about themselves, and then saying “I don’t know yet if I’m running.” is getting old. How stupid do they think we are?
My god, it was a Bush love fest on FOX this morning. They started out yesterday replaying the biography of Daddy Bush, a man who’s biggest accomplishment was…what again? Protecting Kuwait?
And some Bush kid said it was the right thing that Daddy Bush did not go in and get Saddam. They won’t tell you WHY it was right.
What? Did George W. needed a legacy?.
(Yes, I don’t like the Bushes, the Clinton’s, the Obama’s, the Pelosi’s, the Reid’s…want to see my list?)
As I watched it for the second time, I realized the whole family was saying things like–
“LOOK! Just think how impressed Vladimir Putin was when he rode on Daddy’s speed boat, and look how fast daddy’s boat can go!”
I’m sure Putin was really impressed. (You’re kidding me right?)
He took Putin for a ride on his boat? Wow. And we are supposed to feel GOOD that they all love Bill Clinton?
FACT: Daddy Bush was elected on the coat tails of Ronald Reagan. Nobody knew much about Herbert Walker…just that he promised to continued Reagan’s efforts. So he got in on that alone. After all, Ronald Reagan defeated Russia, and said the famous, ” Tear down this wall!” And the German people did.
Imagine my surprise today when Bill Gates (right after the interview with Jeb Bush) declared that it was George H.W. Bush that bought down the Berlin Wall and is finally getting credit. Telling the Tea Party Patriots of course, that Ronald Reagan did not do it, Bush did.
(Please. I know his legacy runs kind of short, but aren’t they reaching here?)
Bill Gates sounded like he was doing a job interview for his old job back. Lots of tough talk on what HE would do with Russia.
Anyway, Daddy Bush was born with more than a silver spoon in his mouth— more like a plutonium shovel. Prescott Bush was the man. HE was the big wealthy Wall Street guy. You can go a long way when dad has connections.
The love fest went on: Daddy Bush was the youngest fighter pilot (in my Nobody Opinion, his biggest accomplishment) And then they made the biggest deal about how brave he was to move to that dust bowl of Texas…and worked his way up to become a successful oil man.
As IF he started from scratch in the oil business like the rest of us.
In the biography of Daddy Bush, they didn’t talk much about his accomplishments in the CIA. (Were there any?) The hour-long program was mostly to promote the family as really good people. Daddy Bush can barbecue. Daddy Bush is very sweet. Daddy Bush had a nice dog. Mrs. Bush did most of the talking, and acted like he was just an old Fuddy dud.
(Which he is–now.)
You got It: After Daddy Bush…Jeb got his big interview.
There is one thing that is especially creepy to me, about Jeb, and it’s not his fault. He has all the same facial and “aw gosh shucks” expressions that George W. had. It’s a tick in the family that extremely annoying to watch.
And although Obama is the worst President in our history, many people (myself included) BLAME George W. for Obama even getting on the ticket.
Conservatives everywhere felt…betrayed by George W. Bush.
The Wall Street Bailout..was the nail. It was saying to the whole country, yes, the GOP looks out for big business before you guys, the democrats were right.
“I’ve abandoned free market principles to save the free market system.” –George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Dec. 16, 2008
Jeb figures he won’t get the women vote, so he’s going for the Hispanics. He basically tells the good citizens of America that illegal immigration is an act of love for the starving people to come and feed their families.
What he doesn’t tell you is that this love is very expensive, and it’s YOUR expense–you just need to find it in your hearts…to love.
Hell Jeb, you feed them. YOU love them. Or better yet, go run for office in Mexico so they don’t have to leave. Take your favorite commie school program Common Core with you.
Jeb Bush says one factor in his decision will be whether he can deliver an optimistic message without getting drawn into a political “mud fight.”
“In my case, that means, ‘can one do it joyfully?’” he said.
He also says the other main factor in his decision to run will be whether it’s OK with his family
Really? We all know it’s okay with your family Jeb, but it’s not your family that runs America. (Or…is it?)
Really Jeb, move to Mexico and run for President there. If you do a good enough job, then, maybe we’ll think about it.
I am surprised they are starting Jeb’s campaigning so early, but I think this is more about stopping the Tea Party in Congress in 2014, than the 2016 elections. This is about the old-established GOP staying in control. When you can get your face on all the cable networks for free, and you’re not even running yet…that’s power. That’s…a monopoly. That’s not American. That’s Dynasty.
Jeb Bush says it’s all about “winning.” That’s right Jeb, so…do us all a favor, and don’t run. Or if you must…how about Mayor of Miami?
Nobody Can Believe This
Okay. I know. We should be used to this by now….but all she had to do was ANSWER THE QUESTION. And noticed how surprised she was that he even had the audacity to ask that!
Notice, Hillary has no accomplishments as Secretary of State except she must have eaten at a LOT of five star restaurants flying around the world. So, instead, she went into a long rant about basically, BS…so she lied. America is much less respected in the world, our economy is the pits, and she is full of BS…but hey…she will be our next President if Jeb Bush runs.
Notice how well she goes into it’s…BUSH’s fault! Obama is back to saying that too! Bush will be blamed for the Ebola outbreak in Africa next. The black plague. The Chicago Cubs never winning a world series. Bill Clinton’s love of young prostitutes. I personally want to blame him for trying to make out he’s the American Winston Churchill painter. It’s an insult to Winston Churchill.
Yes, it’s still Bush’s fault. Say what?
But just imagine: After 8 years of Obama…8 year of Hillary?
No wonder people are jumping off buildings.

My liberal friend, who is STILL a swinging bachelor at 76, saw this car and thought of all the lost moments of his youth. He wants one. I would certainly rather have this car than an electric one.
I do think the fact that Bill O’Reilly is trying to sell us the new Tesla electric car is insane. What exactly is going to fire up those electric babies since Obama is closing all the coal mines? And how’s that Chevy Volt coming? Did you know that the taxpayers gave South Korea $150 million to build batteries for it? And speaking of batteries, do you think those batteries are going to last forever?
Ford’s Chief executive, Alan Mulally, revealed that the battery packs for the electric Ford Focus costs between $12,000 and $15,000 a piece.
Electric vehicles are far more expensive than regular vehicles, do little to help the planet (since they’re charged by coal-powered electricity) and tend to catch fire. In reality, China is ratcheting down its “investments” in “green” energy and focusing on what will actually power the economy: fuel efficiency, coal and natural gas. Meanwhile, the United States is deceived into thinking wind, solar, and electric vehicles are the wave of the future. It would take ten years to make up the upfront expense of the vehicle. The average length of time a car is owned is now just 6 years, so already you won’t make up the cost. And electric vehicles need to have their batteries replaced every 5 years or so, so you’re guaranteed to have to replace that battery. And since those batteries cost about $15,000 dollars, you would actually need to own the vehicle for 25 years before covering all the added costs associated it in the amount of gas you save.
So, what would you rather buy? A water car or a new Tesla? Not to mention the entire country would have to be wired for electric cars everywhere.
I think, Bill O’Reilly is spending too much time with Jeffery Immelt. All he is looking out for is his wallet.
It doesn’t matter, if things keep going as they are, very few people will even be able to afford a car in the future.
(Okay, this is Saturday. Sorry for being grumpy. )
LONG LIVE THE WATERCAR! (How’s that, better?)

This is a REAL feel good video….a humpback whale, almost dead, was saved by a few good men.
(Thanks to Kim Komando)
Obama has proven that going on entertainment shows to push his agenda gets him the votes, because that’s where his base lies: in the place where most people don’t read. They get all their information from the comedians.
So—Jimmy Fallon did this to get the conservatives to watch his program, although you can be sure, he will never let them knock Obama…..and I for one, think Sarah Palin is a much better….entertainer than Obama. He’s jokes are always mean.
Her sense of humor far outweighs Obama. Even the women they used to bring her down—Tina Fey.
So—Enjoy Sarah…if you haven’t seen this already.
(And does she really play the flute? Anybody?)
Lots of people know that Ben Franklin started the first library, but reading about it in his OWN words, is pretty cool. Below I ‘reprint’ Ben’s own explanation about how he thought of the concept of a library…
(Ben was VERY good at promoting all his achievements as John Adams used to so cantankerously observe.)
Actually, I also think Ben started the concept of “branding” because he made sure when he was in Paris, that you could buy his image on cups, fans, coins—-his image was all over Paris.
I love reading the founders own words and have often thought, that if our children in our schools read throughout the grades the founders own words, (instead of the rewritten history by some liberal idiot) the country would be more educated and KNOW just how much our leaders are destroying us all. It’s obvious that one of the reasons we are in such a mess today, is because of our terrible schools, which I am beginning to think is on purpose.
Why do I think it’s on purpose? Ben will tell you.
Pay attention to the last sentence: Ben knew that only an informed and educated public will stand up for its rights.
–ENJOY! And be amazed at the genius (and good common sense) of Ben Franklin.
From Ben’s Biography 1771
He had just moved from Boston—(Library is in Franklin, MA)
“I began now to have some acquaintance among the young people of the town that were lovers of reading, with whom I spent my evenings very pleasantly: and gained money by my industry and frugality. I lived very contended and forgot Boston as much as I could, and did not wish it should be known where I resided, except to my friend Collins, who war in the secret and kept it faithfully.
About this time 1730, our club meeting not at a tavern but in a little room of Mr. Grace’s set apart for that purpose, a proposition was made by me that, since our books were often referred to in our disquisitions upon the queries, it might be convenient to us to have them all together when we met, that upon occasion, they might be consulted. And by thus clubbing our books into a common library, we should, while we liked to keep them together, have each of us the advantage of using the books of all the other members, which would be nearly as beneficial as if each owned the whole. It was liked and agreed to , and we filled on end of the room with such books as we could best spare. The number was not so great as we expected: and, though they had been of great use, yet some inconveniences occurring for want of due care of them, the collection, after about a year, was separated and each took his books home again.
And now I set on foot my first project of a public nature—that for a subscription library. I drew up the proposals, got them put into form by our great scrivener Brockden, and, by the help of my friends in the Junto, procured fifty subscribers of 40s. each to begin with and 10s. a year for fifty years, the term our company was to continue. We afterward obtained a charter, the company being increased to one hundred. This was the mother of all the North American subscription libraries, now so numerous. It is become a great thing itself, and continually goes on increasing. These libraries have improved the general conversation of the Americans, made the common tradesmen and farmers as intelligent as most gentlemen from other countries, and perhaps have contributed in some degree to the stand so generally made throughout the colonies in defense of their privileges. “
This video hits a VERY personal note to me. This speech was given in front of the Missouri legislature, and as you can see by the very FEAR of this teacher in coming forth about Common Core, she is afraid she will lose her job. And she is right to be afraid. Our educational system in Missouri (and I suspect most other states) is a top-down dictatorial sewage of corruption.
I know: My son showed up to his high school in his senior year, and was told he couldn’t attend. He needed a doctor’s excuse to come into the school.
To make a long story short, he was suffering from a disorder called DSPS, (Delayed Sleep Phrase Syndrome) and instead of working with us, the school, just kicked him out.
Illegally. They are NOT allowed to kick any kid out of school without a trial.
I went through all the channels, from the local school board, to the educational board in Jefferson City, to the governor of Missouri, because my son had done absolute nothing wrong but be sick.
I even went to the top lawyer here, Brown and Crupen (Yes, the ones who Glenn Beck says is so honorable) and that man just heard my name and started screaming at me.
Screaming “You don’t have a CASE!’ How did he know what I was even going to say?
He was on the school board payroll.
I then went to the Post Distract, who was interested in the story, (good kid kicked out of school) but then the reporter, wouldn’t return my phone calls. They too, bow to the state.
My son was not let on the school grounds. I read in the paper that one of his friends was caught selling drugs on school grounds, he got a few days suspension. Over 1100 black kids who didn’t even live in our district, got to go half days. My taxes paid for THEM.
The proud day a parent feels when their son graduates, was deprived of us. His prom. His friends. His senior year.
So why did they kick him out? WHY? I told him he had no choice but to get his GED.
He scored so high on the GED test he got a scholarship, but that’s a whole other story.
I was threatened and harassed, so many times by so many school officials, and all this for a kid who not only had always had top grades, but had never even had one mark on his record for anything.
He WAS in the top ten (IQ) of his class. (And that’s what I think is the problem.)
Two years later, (after my son had been property diagnosed at Washington Universally sleep clinic) they school sent me a letter and said my son could come back.
They had been collecting money for his attendance—all that time. They just said he quit. (lie)
So I was that woman. I know what she is feeling. She knows what is happening to the kids, especially the good kids, the smart kids, and it’s an abomination. The people placed in the school administrations are Gestapo’s. And they all get big bucks. Notice how they did not let that woman talk long?
If you have a child in school, you now must teach him at home as well. Especially math. They have screwed up math so badly IT’S ALMOST A JOKE.
There are still school in the U.S. that are good, but the majority, especially in democratic regions, are run like military and they are destroying whatever brain you child might have.
And the parent is powerless. Now…the teachers will be too. Common Core is a joke. It’s control, and money for big corporations, and the new surveillance state.
Damn you Bill Gates…
Please watch this, and know, that the threat is real.
I know, I learned the hard way that the corruption goes all the way to the top.
So Congratulations Susan Kimball. You win the Nobody’s Fool Award for the week. Thank you for being brave and standing up to the Common Criminals and for all kids everywhere.
(And yes, I’m STILL pissed off at what they did to my son.)
