O'Reilly and the President and dumb educators.

We don't do snow very well. And if I had wanted a snow every week I would have stayed in Denver.

If Mostly Cajun tried to drive into northern MS or western TN yesterday he had a miserable trip.

When it snows here people like to get in the left lane and drive at 15 mph when conditions would allow a safe 30-40 MPH. They think that even if the outside temp is 33 and there is only slush on the highway that the snow people will run out and push them into a ditch.

My fav yesterday was a lady driving a Chevy Impala that had snow covering both passenger side windows, the rear window and the driver side rear window. She was merrily driving down the center lane, changing lanes whenever she felt the need. Of course she couldn't see and was depending entirely upon the other drivers anticipating her every move and getting out of her way.

I tried to watch O'Reilly last night but became sick with all the bowing and scraping by his "guests" over his interview with Obama. If I hear him saying he is "looking out for the folks" one more time I may puke. What he is doing is making money for Fox and O'Reilly.

And I have no problem with that and enjoy him when he can keep his super sized ego under control. But when he starts calling people who write nasty emails "koolaid drinkers" I flip the dial.

Hey Bill! They are your fans! Live with it! And sometimes their advice is good!

And under the heading of educators and other foolish thiungs.

Why the Department of Education should be eliminated.

MANSFIELD (CBSDFW.COM) – Some Students at Mansfield ISD schools could soon be learning Arabic as a required language. The school district wants students at select schools to take Arabic language and culture classes as part of a federally funded grant.

The Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) grant was awarded to Mansfield ISD last summer by the U.S. Department of Education.

As part of the five-year $1.3 million grant, Arabic classes would be mandatory at Cross Timbers Intermediate School and Kenneth Davis Elementary School. The program would also be optional for students at T. A. Howard Middle School and Summit High School.

Well, if they can tell you you must buy something they can tell you that Arabic is the language of the future. And that your child must learn it. And what kind of a nessage does that send to our enenuies and those moderate Muslims who don't know who to support?

The DOE has identified Arabic as a ‘language of the future.’ But parent Joseph Balson was frustrated by the past. “Why are we just now finding out about it?” asked Balson. “It’s them (Mansfield ISD) applying for the grant, getting it approved and them now saying they’ll go back and change it only when they were caught trying to implement this plan without parents knowing about it.”

Why are people who take up education as a career so often shown to be in favor of things the tax payers do not want??????

"Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves.” - William Pitt

"Logic. There is little logic among the cultural elite, maybe because there is little omnipresent fear of job losses or the absence of money, and so arises a rather comfortable margin to indulge in nonsense." - Victor Davis Hanson

  1. I'm listening to Glenn Beck comment about the Mansfield ISD/ Arabic language classes item, and my thoughts about it are: this is Texas, we need to learn Spanish; Arabic is the language of the future? I thought that was supposed to be Chinese? (You know, the language of our creditors/ overseers?)
