Michele Backmann Annoucne Run for POTUS; Has 1st Gaffe

Representative Michele Bachmann kicked off her presidential campaign today in Waterloo, Iowa.

In a speech, she was quoted;

"Well what I want them to know is just like, John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That's the kind of spirit that I have, too."

The only problem is that John Wayne was from Winterset, Iowa, not Waterloo, Iowa.

Serial killer John Wayne Gace was from Waterloo, Iowa.

You can read a copy of the article in The Washington Times by clicking
here and watch a clip (posted below) from the event which was found on YouTube.

Bachmann juts lost me as a supporter. Anyone who is running for POTUS needs to have their facts straight, and I do not care that she is a Republican.

I felt Barack HUSSEIN Obama (aka Little Barry Soetoro, Oprah's Love Child, The Boy Wonder, BO, The Big ZERO, P Bo) messed up when he stated he had campaigned in "57 states." Backmann deserves no slack either.

"You may be right that people say: 'You know what, we had Obama. He was inexperienced. The guy had great rhetoric, sounded good, looked good, but has turned out to be an utter disaster. I want someone where I have confidence and credibility that they're up to the job and that I can trust what they tell me.'" - Karl Rove

Texans Head to New York To Get Same-Sex Marriages

The news is awash with legalization of same-sex marriages in New York state.

In an article from the Houston Chronicle, gays and lesbians are headed to the Empire State to get hitched.

The only thing is such marriages are not recognized in Texas.

I really do not care what two consenting adults to behind closed doors, this is just another case of the government granting creditability to something that the majority of Americans are against.

Marriage is and always has been a union between a man and a woman.

If two people want to "hook up," then that is none of my business, but this decision in New York is wrong.

There are no two ways around it.

Welcome to a United States of American under liberal indoctrination thanks to Barack HUSSEIN Obama and his absent minded followers.

Obama Eyeing Another Chicago "Buddy" to Run ATF is reporting that the Obama administration is in talks this week with Andrew Traver, who could replace the current head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), a man gun-rights groups have railed against as being hostile to their cause.

This is just what we need. Another Obama intellectual liberal making decisions about our constitutional rights.

Obama won't release bin Laden death photos

President Barack HUSSEIN Obama ordered grisly photographs of Osama bin Laden in death sealed from public view on Wednesday, declaring, “We don’t need to spike the football” in triumph after this week’s daring middle-of-the-night raid.
Here are some thoughts, at least from my mind:

1. If Bush was still POTUS, the Press and the Democrats would be DEMANDING the release of the photos. I have to wonder about this group in charge.

2. Why annouce he was unarmed? Just annouce he resisted and was dispatched.

3. Why annouce you collected a treasure trove of intel from the home?
When the Brits recovered an Egnima machine from a U-boat, they did not tell the Germans.

4. They should follow Israel's line on questions 'Neither Confirm or Deny"

5. Why even annouce what specific group of soldiers executed the mission? What purpose does it serve to give the enemy any insight on your capabilities?

6. I would not be surprised if the SEAL Team Six are hosted by the White House.

I want proof, REAL PROOF!

We had better raase the Terror Threat Level in the USA. One just knows retaliation is to follow from his followers.

Was it a preditor drone or his kidney failure?

Austin Anti-Abortion Group Defends Obama Billboard

A Texas anti-abortion group on Saturday defended its billboard campaign on Chicago's South Side that uses an image of President Barack Obama, while community groups said they hope to encourage residents to talk frankly about women's health in low-income neighborhoods.

Click here to read the story in the Houston Chronicle.

I really don't see anything wrong with this billboard.

On the other hand, the brain damaged supporters of The Current Temporary Resident of the White House are probably up in arms.

To that, I say "WHO CARES?"

Teaching: Wisconsin and Texas: FOOD FOR THOUGHT

All this mess going on with the teachers in Wisconsin made me think.

What if a similar thing happened here in Texas.

Well, it may be closer than one thinks.

At my school, we have already been told we were going to have to pick up extra responsibilities next year, class sizes may be larger and all departments and programs should expect a 15% budget cut. We have also been told we will be under a hiring freeze for at least the next two years.

I understand the need for these moves. We have just so much money and everyone needs to cut back.

But when I see "certain personal" getting PREMO assignments and an overblown top-heavy administration staff, one begins to question the motives.

Why does a school need NINE assistant principals? Why does a school need EIGHT counselors? Why does a school need curriculum and content specialists? Why does a school need consultants to come into the school and tell them what they are doing wrong and how to teach?

We need to get back to the basics: TEACH!!!!

If a student messes up: PUNISH HIM OR HER!!!!

Let the teachers teach! That is what they went to college for (well, at least some of them).
That brings up my next point: ALTERNATIVE CERTIFICATION!

We need to get most of these hacks out of the classroom.

Most do more damage than they are worth.

After 33 years, I am beginning to think I am too old for this shit!!!!

Federal Appeals Court Upholds UT-Austin Admissions Standards

Hot off the press in the Houston Chroncile from the AP:

A federal appeals court has ruled that the consideration of race and ethnicity in the admissions standards at the University of Texas at Austin is legal.

The three-judge 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel in New Orleans upheld on Tuesday a 2008 lower-court ruling that UT didn't infringe on the civil rights of two white, female students who were refused admission to that year's freshman class.

Abigail Fisher and Rachel Michalewicz had alleged that the university violated their constitutional right to equal protection.

Patricia Ohlendorf, UT legal affairs vice president, said she was pleased with the ruling. The women's attorney, Bert Rein of Washington, D.C., said he was disappointed in the outcome.

It is amazing to me that people who are not academically prepared to attended a school like UT are allowed admittance in order for the school to be PC fashionable. I wonder how many of those admitted under the "race and ethnicity in the admissions standards" finish their degrees and are prepared for the world? Very few, I would bet!!!

This was the music of my youth. Being a trumpet player, I LOVED listing to Chicago, Blood, Sweat and Tears, and Chase.

Chase cut three albums and I had two of them growing up. They are somewhere in the house and I may dig them out sometime.

In the meantime, I will enjoy listening to them on YouTube.
