A Basic Civics Test

While the Democrats beat the bushes for more voters, I wonder if we might be better off if a lot of voters stayed home.

The Intercollegiate Studies Institute gave a basic civic literacy test to 2,500 Americans including college students, elected officials and other randomly selected citizens. Nearly 1,800 flunked the test, in fact, elected officials scored slightly lower than the general public with an average score of 44% compared to 49%. Only 0.8 % scored an A.

I scored a 82 %.
Give it a try if you want.

The Man

When I need a logical perspective to balance out the barrage of non-sense from the main stream media I often turn to Thomas Sowell.

Home Schooling=Demented

Joy Behar of the View shares her view on home schooling.
A lot of the children are "demented". And it makes them "afraid of other children"

Joy-what's your excuse?

The One

Why wait.
From the Topeka Capital-Journal

Plans are being made to promote a national holiday for Barack Obama, who will become the nation's 44th president when he takes the oath of office Jan. 20.

"Yes We Can" planning rallies will be at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. every Tuesday at the downtown McDonald's restaurant, 1100 Kansas Ave., until Jan. 13. The goals are to secure a national holiday in Obama's honor, to organize celebrations around his inauguration and to celebrate the 200th birthday of President Abraham Lincoln, who was born on Feb. 12 1809.
At 7:30 a.m. on Inauguration Day, Obama Cake will be served at the downtown McDonald's, and a celebration is scheduled for 8 p.m. to midnight Jan. 20 at the Ramada Hotel and Convention Center, 420 S.E. 6th.

Obama cake- no that's too easy.

UPDATE: Plans for making Nov. 4th a national holiday in honor of Barack Obama's election have hit a snag. The owner of the McDonald's isn't on board with the plan.
"You absolutely do not have permission to do any kind of Obama planning," owner Karen Tyler said in a voice mail left on Sonny Scroggins phone..."

All I'm Say'n

It's All About the Little Guy


"But above all, I will never forget who this victory truly belongs to – it belongs to you.

I was never the likeliest candidate for this office. We didn't start with much money or many endorsements. Our campaign was not hatched in the halls of Washington – it began in the backyards of Des Moines and the living rooms of Concord and the front porches of Charleston.

It was built by working men and women who dug into what little savings they had to give five dollars and ten dollars and twenty dollars to this cause."

While it is true that millions of regular people like Obama's illegal alien aunt on public housing gave their rent money to Obama, the Guardian from London has an interesting list of donors to mister "change".
Goldman Sachs employees and families provided $847,207.
People associated with JP Morgan $581,460.
Citigroup associates $581,216.
The famoulsly liberal University of Cal. employees, members and families gave $909,203.

Yep, it's all about the little guy. Oh yeah, and Change.

"I won't have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won't have to worry about paying my mortgage." Wow you can't argue with that logic.
