Unbiased

Ha! The myth of unbiased news lives on. NPR had a promo for donations based on their unbiased reporting. Then they had a story on Ohbombya’s takeover of the coal business where the guests were a fellow in favor of the president’s dictatorship and a representative of the coal business whining about job losses. Am I the only one who sees how this is biased reporting?

Progressive Farmer Magazine…

… has a feature on the last page each month called “Cornerstones.” This month it is titled “School.” It is a list of interesting quotes. This month had the most poignant quote I’ve ever read there:

“The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.”
– Abraham Lincoln

We have an environment where we are told every move to make, are beholden to an all-powerful authority and are treated as an average of the whole, which dumbs down the exceptional and caters to the ones who need a little boost.

Publically funded compulsory education has given us a publically funded compulsory world. Its mediocrity will be its downfall.

Speaking of socialism…

…”According to the Government Accountability Office (GAO), “Medicare and Medicaid made a combined $77.4 billion in improper payments in fiscal 2014, a 20.4 percent increase from fiscal 2013.”

If you are pondering how the free market allows such high healthcare costs, here is the reason. There is no free market in healthcare. Unless you consider getting something for free has no cost to you. It’s Karma baby.

Ted Cruz, close but still miles away

I heard audio of Ted Cruz on a rant about the Republican establishment and particularly Mitch McConnell regarding crony-capitalism and the Import Export bank. He sounded darn good until he got to the part about the “war on terror.” Ted, do you really think that so-called war is about stopping terror? It is crony-capitalism at its most horrific. Are you ignorant or evil?
