Unprecedented school-lunch regulations have just gone into effect, and they suggest a new answer to the question “Where’s the beef?”: not on students’ plates — or on their bones. The regulations are a result of Michelle Obama’s “Healthy and Hunger Free Kids Act,” and the result has been wasted food, endangered health, and hungrier kids.
Many voters will be comparing Mitt Romney with Barack Obama between now and election day. But what might be even more revealing would be comparing Obama with Obama. There is a big contrast between Obama based on his rhetoric ("Obama 1") and Obama based on his record ("Obama 2").
We have all heard the old saying that giving a man a fish feeds him only for a day, while teaching him to fish feeds him for a lifetime. Redistributionists give him a fish and leave him dependent on the government for more fish in the future.
In writing my book NEA: Trojan Horse in American Education, first published in 1984 — 28 years ago — I read every issue of the NEA Journal and thus was able to chronicle the National Education Association’s support for world government from their own writings. The NEA began to promote that utopian idea as early as December 1942 when its Journal published an editorial entitled “The United Peoples of the World.” In it, the editor announced the NEA’s support of world government. He quoted Tennyson’s “Locksley Hall" with its reference to the “Parliament of Man, the Federation of the World.”
College professors correctly lament students' disinterest in the liberal arts, but the professors, most of who are leftists, incorrectly point the finger of blame at the political Right.
Low-income people aren’t the only ones dependent on government. Another group is even more dependent: the people of the corporate world who expect government to provide bailouts, guarantees, and contracts. Romney supported the financial bailout and, aside from talking vaguely about tax loopholes, does not question the pervasive system of government privilege for big business.
Large-scale cheating has been uncovered over the last year at some of the nation’s most competitive schools. With American students no longer being educated under Christian moral standards, is there any mystery why students in our most prestigious institutions cheat?
Although Chicago’s public school teachers are among the highest paid in the nation, they wanted more, and according to the settlement reached late Tuesday, September 18, they are getting more. Mayor Rahm Emanuel hailed the settlement as marking “a new day and a new direction” for Chicago public schools. He said it provided “higher pay for teachers and a higher standard of education for students.”
Technically speaking, Republicans do talk, but talking is definitely not their strong suit. Nor do they seem to have put a lot of thought into what they say or how they say it. The net result is that articulate Democrats can get away with the biggest lies, without any serious rebuttal from most Republicans.
In campaign speeches September 17 in the swing state of Ohio, President Obama railed against imported automotive components that are illegally subsidized by the Chinese government.
Constitutionalists should find fault with Obama’s crusade du jour. His case against China is hypocritical, because his administration is guilty of the very thing he accuses China of (but on an even greater scale). He is after all, the president who claims he saved General Motors. Under his watch, the federal government contributed $76 billion to GM and Chrysler. Doubtless those are government subsidies, and the original total was 76 times greater than the amount Obama claims China kicked in to their automotive industry.
Obama’s subsidization of the American auto industry — immoral, illogical, and illegal — is just one piece of the gigantic puzzle that shows his non-Americanist ways. He has Chinese-like tendencies, founded upon the preachings of the Communist Manifesto.
