  1. As Obama receives his award from the USC Shoah Foundation someone tasks him WTF is going on in California’s Unified School District, run by interim Superintendent MOHAMMED Z. ISLAM.
    Here’s the link,have a container handy for vomiting.

    • I saw that too, and it was the most disgusting thing I’ve seen in a really long time. It’s tied to Common Core too. Maybe if he gets the results he wants, it will become a nationwide project.

      • Common Core
        Everyone, when time allows pull up that site that show an example of (their) way of teaching a grade school math problem.
        I know we have hundreds of things to be concerned with, however the teaching of the children is important as well, and this issue is just sliding on though with not much attention.
        I read an article a couple of weeks ago, where the kids who declined to do common core were not given a treat. The kids who did common core were given the treat. These were very young kids being shunned.

    • How anyone can deny the Holocaust is beyond comprehension Whoever gave that assignment to the students should be fired.

      My 88 yr old uncle was an ambulance driver during WWII. He accompanied Generals Eisenhower, Patton and Omar Bradley on their historic visit to Ohrdruf, the first Nazi concentration camp to be liberated by the U.S. Army. – April, 1945.

      He was also given the gruesome task of documenting the dead and dying by photographing them before he removed their bodies. He showed the family those photos for the first time on Easter Sunday. Dozens of black and white photos – so horrible, we had to turn away. One of his photos was the first ever to be circulated around the world.

      Oh, and btw, there was no such thing as photoshopping during WWII. /sarc/


      • Thanks for mentioning your Uncle’s time in WWII.
        My grandfather served in WWII as well.
        I am disgusted by these people with even suggesting against what happened.

      • My uncle served in Patton’s army and when he came home from
        the war he had pictures of people in their striped garb, and these
        pictures proved that the holocaust did happen. I am glad he
        brought home these photos, and now they are in the safe keeping
        of my 63 year old son. I told him that some day someone would
        try to tell the world that there was no such thing as the holocaust.

    • Heard and read all about it today. I am preparing my response – it’s called Jewhad! If California just happens to have a sizeable earthquake in the next couple of days … I’ll know prayer has worked.

  2. Where in Arkansas? Will Mark Pryor be there?
    He is not well-liked here. I find this an odd place for him to make a statement.
    I would not walk across the street to see him.

    • I think his visit is tied to the tornados. Hug a few people for a photo op, tell them he’s got their backs, promise money, and they will never hear from him again.

      • You are likely correct. I do not think that area supports him.
        I doubt if Mark Pryor will be there but Daddy David will be along with the current governor Beebe. David is in big with the Clintons and teaches classes at the Clinton Library (We have never been there).
        I will be watching to see if former Congressman Mike Ross meets him. He is a Blue Dog Democrat running for governor. Beebe is term-limited. We support former Congressman Asa Hutchinson who served on the Clinton Impeachment Committee.

      • I live in the Twin Lakes area of the Ozarks, a stone’s throw from Missouri (My hair dresser is in Missouri about nine minutes from my house). Obama is extremely unpopular here.
        He is strong in some parts of the LR area, very strong in the Pine Bluff area, large parts of the Delta, some of the Hot Springs area, and some areas of South Arkansas.
        I know two couples and one widow here who are for him, all retired union people. We are a retirement area and most of our residents are transplants.
        There is only one other Arkansan on our cul-de-sac and her husband is from Tennessee. Many, many form the Chicago area, California, Indiana, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
        Our newest neighbors are from downstate Illinois, They moved here with a six year old German Shepard named Delta…LOL…they are lovely people.

        • THANKS for the insight. I figured the LR, Delta area re: gov’t payments but wasn’t aware of the Hot Springs and Pine Bluff. Hmmmmm
          Just hope the transplants all decided to move down for the freedom of conservatism and not trying to bring the dem policies that destroying their previous states.

          • This will put me in “moderation.”
            There is a name for the acronym UAPB, the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. If you attend “You Are Probably B—k.”
            They churn out master’s degrees for teachers as fast as the FED prints money. I taught with many of those “highly educated” before I retired from teaching in South Arkansas.

          • My comment would be in the category with John McCain’s concluding remarks after interviewing Obama nominations for ambassadors to Norway and some others. “I have no more questions for these ‘highly qualified’ candidates.”

          • Makes me wonder if that “highly educated” principal in New York who cancelled the Kindergarten play to keep the wee ones cracking their books this year got her “education” from UAPB! lol

          • Could be…LOL…my daughter-in-law teaches in the NYC school system and she is so discouraged. She detests Common Core but is fearful of speaking out because of the strength of the unions, teachers and administrators.
            She is too near retirement to give it up and my son is in the same position at his job at the Metropolitan Museum of Art….besides the fact that they love living in NYC.

    • If he stays at his usual haunt, the Beverly Hilton, he can’t miss them. Only problem – the motorcade travels so fast he probably won’t see them. :(

        • The Sultan (Dorchester Group) owns the Beverly Hills Hotel and the Bel Air Hotel – the two most exquisite hotels in CA.
          The Beverly Hilton was once owned by Merv Griffin and, in my opinion, it is rather tacky. Perfect for Obama, lol!
