Students beware: The summer vacation you just enjoyed could be sharply curtailed if President Barack Obama gets his way.
Obama says American kids spend too little time in school, putting them at a disadvantage with other students around the globe.
Other nations have more school
Obama and Duncan say kids in the United States need more school because kids in other nations have more school.
"Young people in other countries are going to school 25, 30 percent longer than our students here," Duncan told the AP. "I want to just level the playing field."
While it is true that kids in many other countries have more school days, it's not true they all spend more time in school.
Kids in the U.S. spend more hours in school (1,146 instructional hours per year) than do kids in the Asian countries that persistently outscore the U.S. on math and science tests — Singapore (903), Taiwan (1,050), Japan (1,005) and Hong Kong (1,013). That is despite the fact that Taiwan, Japan and Hong Kong have longer school years (190 to 201 days) than does the U.S. (180 days).
Just like the communist countries do! Why does Obama feel the need to be like the other countries and to tie America in with them. We have always been the leading country and he wants to level the playing field?
If left up to Obama we will be run just like the communist countries!
SONG: "MM, mm, mm! Barack Hussein Obama. He said that we all must lend a hand To make this country strong again"
This YouTube video of kids at the B. Bernice Young Elementary in Burlington.. New Jersey.. is making headlines on Fox News. In it.. the children are singing about honoring President Obama and praising him for his accomplishments. The school superintendent says the taping was unauthorized. But Fox News says the school didn't address whether the lesson was approved by the district.
Obama belonged to a Socialist Party. New Information has come out confirming that Obama was a member of a radical socialist political party in Chicago called the “New Party,” composed of former Black Panther members. Several documents have confirmed Obama’s membership as recently as 1996. Obama’s supporters have attempted to “scrub” websites clean of this information but fortunately, researchers made copies of it before it disappeared. So far, the media is refusing to cover this story.
Obama continues to hide his past. Obama has continued to block reporters from gaining access to any and all medical, school, and even legislative records from his state senate days. The media should be screaming about this but they are not. This makes Obama the least known presidential candidate in perhaps American history. All of McCain’s records were made available.
The only thing we do know about Obama’s time at Columbia University is that the title of his thesis was “Soviet Nuclear Disarmament” but he will not release it. I wonder why.
Michelle Obama has written a racist thesis. Access to Michelle Obama’s senior thesis at Princeton was also blocked until recent effort by researchers to gain access to it. I can understand now why access was initially blocked.
In her thesis, Michelle identifies herself as a black separatist and is clearly hostile to the notion of blacks integrating into the larger society with all the evil whites. This is Farrakhan type racism that could have easily been written by a Klansman from a white perspective.
Do you think if Cindy McCain had written a thesis about white separatism, it would be news?
Illegal foreign contributions were pouring into Obama’s campaign at an unprecedented rate. Analysis of Obama’s disclosures revealed he had received around $32 million dollars from overseas, much of it from the Middle East . There are 11,500 foreign donations. 520 of the donors list their country as “IR” which is Iran . He received millions from “Palestinians” and others hostile to US policy. Such contributions are illegal and the Republican Party has asked the FEC to investigate.
Even more alarming is that $190 million of his contributions are unidentified. The donor is not listed. Many donors are clearly using fake names such as “Good, Will.” The problem is that the FEC had no power to freeze Obama’s campaign or even stop him from continuing to receive foreign money.
All that will happen is that Obama might be fined AFTER the campaign is over. With 10% of Obama’s money coming from overseas, this means that for the first time in American history, foreigners will influence the outcome of a presidential election.
Anti-American dictators are praising Obama. Just about every anti-American dictator in the world has issued words of praise for Obama: Cuban dictator, Fidel Castro, North Korean ruler, Kim Jong-il, Venezuelan strongman, Hugo Chavez, Libyan dictator, Moammar Qadhafi, and so forth.
Never before in American history have so many enemies of America praised a candidate for the presidency. Not only that, but an array of communist and socialist parties both here and abroad have praised him. Even terrorist groups such as the pro-Al Qaeda HAMAS and the Columbian terrorist group (and heroin producing) FARC have praised him.
And what did Obama promise in return? Such praise and endorsements do not come casually. This means that people representing Obama must have met with these groups and leaders and have promised changes in US policy favorable to them.
Prior to the election: Obama’s extremist friends go into hiding. The Obama campaign is frantically covering up all Obama’s socialist and Marxist connections by keeping his wacko friends away from the press. They just need to keep Americans in the dark for one more month! Moreover, documents that show Obama’s work with extremist groups are disappearing. But I don’t hear our crack reporters yelling “censorship!”
Forced union dues used for Obama. The unions are gearing up for the largest campaign mobilization in US history. We now know that they have allocated over $100 million dollars of forced union dues to a massive independent effort attacking McCain and supporting Obama. On election day, hundreds of thousands of union workers will mysteriously call in sick and will work on getting the vote out for Obama.
Obama had hordes of attorneys ready to challenge votes. We know that the Obama campaign has around 10,000 lawyers volunteering to work on election monitoring. As the Kerry campaign had four years ago, there will once again be an effort to decertify absentee ballots sent in abroad from military personnel, based on petty mistakes often made with such ballots.
Obama registered thousands of illegal aliens. While the Obama campaign works hard to disenfranchise the men and women fighting to protect us from terrorism, at the same time they were working feverishly to register illegal aliens, felons, and the homeless by the hundreds of thousands.
Video clips appeared on You Tube showing the Obama campaign registering illiterate homeless people. Most states do not ask for proof of citizenship to register to vote, so hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens voted for Obama.
The group that has specialized in registering illegal aliens for a decade is, in fact, Obama’s former “community service” group — ACORN. While ACORN has been in legal trouble repeatedly for this work, the Obama campaign contracted them out do to “voter registration.” Wink, wink.
Lots of felons were voting. Not by coincidence, democrat governors and democrat legislators were granting felons the right to vote. A Virginian Democrat governor gave thousands of felons the right to vote. Remember, crime pays! The Governor claims this action had nothing to do with the coming election. Right.
Taxpayers groups were ignored by the media. There are four major taxpayer groups in Washington DC that monitor taxation and spending issues full time. All have now rated Obama as one of the worst senators on tax, spending and pork issues, while also rating McCain as one of the best senators on these issues. All have issued press releases but the media has purposely ignored this story.
The media is protecting Obama to a degree never before seen in presidential campaign history.
