Inappropriate behavior from Superintendent Brooks, and his social media “expert” but that’s okay?
Friday afternoon the Albuquerque Public School (APS) District school board met and announced they would be giving APS superintendent a short suspension after his sexist tweets comparing New Mexico Education Secretary Designate Hanna Skandera to livestock. Just a three day suspension. The Rest of the Story This past week we heard a lot about Brooks inappropriate tweets. But I think we have been looking at | Read More »
The Tea Party (AKA: America’s Peaceful Reset Button)
“How can you make a revolution without executions?” (HT: Vladimir Lenin) Have you ever felt frustrated and believed that the system just no longer worked? It’s not something that will just get fixed with a tune-up or an oil change. The time has come to tow the darned thing to the junk yard and start over anew. The faith that we can just bring in | Read More »
Bill Maher Says What David Brooks Believes.
It was a few days ago, and David Brooks was kind enough to tell us unwashed brutes out in the flyover what The Educated People® really believed. Not being invited to their meetings or having been issued the Secret Squirrel Decoder Ring, I was grateful that he would condesc…, er, I mean enlighten us. In case you’ve been too busy flattening skunks with you’re F-150 | Read More »
David Brooks, Supra-Genus (Boy, I Wish I Wer Dat Edumacayted!)
It isn’t very often that I make it out of the limestone cave these days. I have to skin bears, tan hides and light fires to cook over using flint stones and sharp, pointy sticks. Life sure is tough out here in flyover country. We live miles away and seemingly eons apart from The Educated People® like David Brooks; Supra-Genus. Having burned my last book | Read More »
Whoever that Dude is – Brooks
Say what you want about Sarah Palin – but it’s hard not to like someone who, with respect to David Brooks, says to Bill O’Reilly, “…whoever that dude is… Brooks… out there… still calling me a whatever.” Sorry for the late observation – but I missed the O’Reilly interview til now. That’s all.
New York 23 is a fascinating interplay in terms of political science. Following the Obama election and the takeover of Congress, the bean counters at Republican headquarters developed a Progressive strategy of demographic chess instead of actual use of political persuasion. This tried and true liberal philosophy is based on the coalition principle inherent in collectivist theory. It relies on tendencies and labels to win | Read More »
Why We Are Ignored
“First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.” – Mahatma Gandhi Allow me to cut past the prologue and skip to the climax: we are ignored because we have allowed ourselves to be ignored. We are ignored because we have bought into the lie that our total civic duty is fulfilled on election day. We are ignored because | Read More »
Wake Up, Mr. Gerson
So, in today’s Washington Post, Michael Gerson helpfully points out that President Obama “[a]gainst all my expectations” has eschewed the hope and change and “post-partisanship” of his campaign in favor of a liberal agenda and divisive old style politics. Well, pass the smelling salts, because who ever saw that coming?! I guess not Mr. Gerson. Just what, pray tell, did he actually expect? Seriously, I | Read More »
Dear Mr. Brooks,
Let me speak more directly to the most troubling aspect of reform conservatism – the apparent disdain for traditional conservatives. Contrary to the implication drawn from David Brooks’ noxious homily, Darkness at Dusk, in the November 11, 2008 New York Times, traditional conservatives are not entrenched relics, hell bent on marching like lemmings to the political cliff – nor are we all in lock step | Read More »
I am a moderate conservative.
Criticism of Palin’s experience
experience. I guess I will have to agree to disagree with them. Also note that they do not say Obama is qualified. However, one thing I have noticed about Palin the past few days: SHE’S THE ONLY ONE ON FREAKIN’ MESSAGE!!!!!
