More of Obama's Appointees and Friends

Obama's Climate czar is Carol N. Browner who also served as the Environmental Protection Agency administrator during the Clinton administration and was Florida's Secretary of the Environment. She founded and continues to serve as a principal of the Albright Group a global strategy group. Ms. Browner is a Socialist activist who is a member of the Commission for a Sustainable World Society at Socialist International which is an umbrella group for 170 social democratic, socialist and labor parties in 55 companies. This group feels that capitalism is the cause of devastating crises, mass unemployment, imperialist expansion and colonial exploitation. They also contend that the developed world must reduce consumption and commit to binding and punitive limits on greenhouse gas emissions.
Once again by looking to his appointees and friends we can see who Obama is and what he really believes in. Obama believes in social justice and has stated several times that his salvation is dependent upon collective salvation or his saving all of us. This is contrary to what I believe. I believe that I am responsible for my own salvation, that I do not need big government to tell me how to live my life and I certainly do not what the money made here in America being taken from us and given to poorer countries as Obama's advisers have all stated that they want to do.

Please vote on November 2, 2010 and vote for the person who will bring out wonderful country back to where it should be.

The American Education Diet: Can U.S. Students Survive On Junk Food?

I was recently reading in my local paper how the students in my state were not doing much better than the states with a comparable demographic. Utah is a state that has a high ratio of college educated parents who seem to be concerned about the education of their children however Utah is one of the lowest in per student spending. Our governor and State Superintendent of Schools feel that we are so successful because we can do so much with so little. But if we are not really doing much better than other states who spend more how can we be successful? We are just getting by. We are not pushing ourselves to be the best. If we are going to compete globally in the coming years we need to be improving in all areas and making sure that our students have the education necessary to compete.
America tests in the middle of other countries
Percentage of U.S. eighth-graders testing at or above proficient in math:

• Massachusetts 51%
• Higher than any other state.
Countries that did better on a comparable test:
Singapore 73%

Hong Kong 66%

Korea 65%

Taiwan 61%

Japan 57%

• Mississippi
• Lower than any other state
• (Only the District of Columbia did worse 8%.)

We cannot continue to be mediocre we must strive for excellence and to be the best or we will lose our edge to those countries such as China and India who are willing to put in the effort to help their students succeed.

Below is a report on student education in America that is worth the time to read.

If you listen to the post below this women states that she would be the first to put a pillow over a suffering babies face and smother it to death because it would be the best thing to do. Another man Peter Singer wants to make it legal to "kill a baby up to 2 years old if the parents are dissatisfied with their child or if the child is disabled or weak.
I have worked with people with disabilities since I was ten years old. I have friends who have severely disabled children and do not know a single parent that would put a pillow over their child's face because it would save them some inconvenience. We know a family whose daughter was born with CHARGE syndrome and has struggled her whole life, but this beautiful girl is so amazing she makes all who are around her smile and happy. We love being around this lovely girl and could not imagine how anyone could consider having put a pillow over her face and snuff out her life.
What are these people thinking to believe that we want to snuff out the lives of those with disabilities or who are weaker than we are. Those with disabilities should be protected and loved.

I am not sure how the video below is suppose to encourage me to want to join their cause. If I don't join in their cause are they espousing violence against those of us who don't join? I think that the video is symptomatic of the progressive program in that they are willing to riot, blow up and become violent with those of us who disagree with their program. Case in point the difference between Glenn Beck's 8-28 rally where they came to pray and 10-2-10 whose whole rhetoric was about bacoming violent and causing a civil war if necessary to bring Socialism to America. The progressives are becoming very scary and worrisome. We need to beware.
