gadaffi's all female security force
They may have been virgins when they joined up is my opinion.
As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave a speech at George Washington University yesterday condemning governments that arrest protestors and do not allow free expression - and lauding freedom of speech on the Internet - 71-year-old military veteran Ray McGovern was grabbed from the audience in plain view of her by police and an unidentified official in plain clothes and hustled out of the building and, according to McGovern and his supporters, was “brutalized and left bleeding in jail.”
What McGovern did was simply remain standing silently in the audience and turned his back on her as Secretary Clinton began her speech.
That was it.
McGovern, a veteran Army officer who also worked as a C.I.A. analyst for 27 years, was wearing Veterans for Peace t-shirt.
Blind-sided by security officers who pounced upon him, McGovern remarked, as he was hauled out the door, "So this is America?"
According to Mara Verheyden-Hilliard, attorney with the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, “For this peaceful expression of dissent, he ended up bruised, bloodied, arrested, and jailed. Secretary Clinton never paused, continuing her speech lecturing other countries about the need to allow freedom of expression and dissent, while Mr. McGovern was hauled out in front of her.”
McGovern was later found to have his arm covered with bruises. The metal handcuffs were fastened so tightly that his wrists were cut and some blood flowed from the cuts.
After being held by local police, McGovern was told he was being charged with disorderly conduct.
It pains me to write this. Not just because a fine American was brutalized by clinton’s thugs, but because it is almost painful to think abut this evil beast, let alone write about her. May this be the last time she is uttered on this blog. While she is lecturing the world on allowing citizens free speech she has someone brutalized who isn’t even talking. She didn’t order it you say? If she was an American, she would have protested about an individual being hauled away for simply standing with his back to her. What arrogance.
If you don’t agree she is evil, you simply don’t know as much or any of what I know about her. Sociopath communist extraordinaire.
I pray the bitch has given up on the White House.
To add a little meat to this idea:
Contrast the above with computer based learning.
The money saving potential is huge. The learning potential is huge. Exceptional students no longer have to be chained to the lowest common denominators of the class.
As Arby commented in the last post, there are some subjects that this would work well for and some not so much. I agree. Subjects like math and science are perfect and other subjects like history would benefit from group discussion and teacher led conceptualizing.
This paradigm shift is Long overdue in coming. It’s like schools are stuck in an environment that business worked in pre-computer. Hand typing General Ledgers, doing inventory management off of scraps of paper littered through the physical inventory, etc.
Additionally, school administrations and teachers unions are completely out of hand. One might say Insanely out of hand.
Teacher union members, it seems to some degree, are even more rabid than UAW members. Yes, of course there are many fine sane teachers, but damn, there are a bunch of them who are absolutely postal over this recession/depression we are in and how it is going to affect them. They demand to remain in a good ship lollipop world where they don’t have to contribute to their Generous health care plans and pensions AND continue to get raises every year. That’s insane.
The union Head actually sent an email to all the teachers in her local in New Jersey asking them to pray for Chris Christie’s death (Chris Christie is the governor of New Jersey of course)
I’ve been listening to teachers calling into radio talk shows that have not the slightest problem demanding that we the taxpayer in the private sector, who have not had raises in 5 years or more, decreases in benefits, and have been feeling the effects of the recession/depression in our personal lives, should somehow be made exempt from same by having US pay more taxes to keep them in the lap of luxury that was created by economic boom bubbles that simply don’t exist anymore. That’s insane.
I’ve got news for those people. I’ll fight to my last breath to make sure that doesn’t happen as will ever other private sector taxpayer I know. Additionally, the Money Isn’t Available. Even if we wanted to, the Money Isn’t Available.
As a result, you have states like New Jersey and Wisconsin (and this is just the start) who are now forced to make you people live on the same planet as the rest of us by forcing you to either contribute to your pension pans and health plans or be fired. Get used to the idea. Cause things are only going to get worse over the next couple years. This year, we’ve got massive food price inflation and we’ll probably have 4 dollar gas, if not 5 and probably will have 5 dollar gas in 2012 because of all you libtards who think the world can run on Unicorn Shit. It can’t. And the price of gas will affect the price of everything else because it takes gas and diesel fuel to get it all those products to within a few blocks of where you live.
If you think We are going to pay to keep you on some economic pedestal, you are out of your minds. And things are going to get worse before they get better. I honestly think the pain is just starting. Sorry.
You better see the writing on the wall. The gravy train is over and you should be thankful you had it so good for so long and should have saved for this rainy day.
I think the governor of Wisconsin should warn the teachers who are camped out at the capitol that they are state employees and they have X amount of time (short) to return to work or be fired and replaced. Just like Reagan did with the Air Traffic Controllers. They and the Democrat legislature of Wisconsin are all acting like a bunch of spoiled babies.
I followed the Thrust SSC back in the late 90’s break the speed of sound on the ground. It was also piloted by Andy Bean, the RAF pilot that you see in the next video.
Here is the Thrust SSC doing its thing.
Now this. 1,000 mph attempt on the ground.
It should be very cool. Here’s an article with more info.
No doubt the progress and all aspects will be available in the net. I’ll follow it and post some links when I see them.
Now that I’ve digested a lot of this news, I have the opinion that it is insanity to accept a situation where a brutal dictator is supported for the sole purpose of holding back the ‘Islamic onslaught’.
It was done with Saddam Hussein in Iraq. I see it as counter-productive and that which actually supports evil more than simply letting, in this case, the Muslim brotherhood to come to power.
So, I’m saying the dictators must go first, then we can deal with the Islamics 2nd. We’re going to have to deal with them anyway. Personally, I’d rather have a direct confrontation opposed to the drip drip drip of creeping Sharia rotting your country away like they are doing in England and France and some places like Detroit in America.
Add the concept of ‘A time of our choosing. Not theirs’.
I see it as similar to the situation with Russia. When Ronald Reagan confronted them directly, while the liberals all sat around wringing their hands worried about what might happen, happily spending trillions on the arms race for eternity, President Reagan said Enough!
Well, let’s say Enough with Islam. Go ahead and build your bombs Iran. Grab all the weapons in Egypt and point them at Israel. Let’s confront and see who wins. Though Israel may want to wait about 2 years, but in the final analysis, they knew what they were getting into in 1948 when they moved into the middle of an Islamic nest. That they might have to defend themselves one day.
The Islamics are never going to stop. It’s their ‘religion’. They only get stronger as time goes on and, in our case, the Democrat communists weaken us further with no rolling back by the Repubs when they are intermittently in power. Peace is not an option for those barbarians.
Wake me up when some candidate and political party comes along pledging to Cancel these liberal programs and bureaucracies that are destroying this country. That would be pretty much any federal agency or program outside of those dealing with national defense.
Not a one has laid a finger on any of them since LBJ started destroying the country in the early 1960’s by stealing the social security money and creating the welfare system. At this point I have no doubt that LBJ was directed by the communists and that JFK was assassinated by the communists.
You want to talk to me about balancing the budget or reducing spending or rebuilding the military or any number of other things that doesn’t fit into the concept of the first paragraph, then …. yawn………… and BFD.
Because the Dems Will get into power again. That’s assuming they are actually kicked out in 2012.
And the Dems will simply start up where they left off. Creeping Communism. They have all the time in the world. They know their agenda hasn’t been damaged since the early 60’s, it’s only been delayed on occasion when the Republicans have been in majority (at best). And like the islamic vermin, that doesn’t bother them. If they succeed 20 years from now or 80 years from now or 150 years from now, they don’t care, as long as they succeed.
We need to start canceling some stuff. If you cancel someone’s unemployment checks, they’ll find a way.
I’m not suggesting cold turkey. I’m talking about turning the wheel on this 14 trillion ton freighter so that maybe 10 or 20 years from now, it’s pointed in the opposite direction - the right direction. It’s current course is an express elevator to hell.
