Single mom overcomes odds
to graduate first in her class
from NCCU Law

News Observer [Raleigh,NC], by Thomas L. MacDonald

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 11/23/2012 6:27:38 AM

Tuesday’s ceremony would have been a routine swearing in of a new attorney licensed to practice in North Carolina, except for Sharika Robinson’s long journey against nearly insurmountable odds to get there. Robinson, a 30-year-old single mother of four children, graduated in May, first in her class of 157 students from the North Carolina Central University School of Law. On Tuesday, she was sworn in at the Wake County Courthouse by state Supreme Court Associate Justice Patricia Timmons-Goodson, the first African-American woman and the third woman elected to serve on the state’s highest court.

Comments:
Ok, I´m going to be the Grinch and say it. I wonder if her kids are all that happy about it? She has been working and going to school full time, plus finding the time to hook up...so where did she have the time to raise her kids? She is quoted as saying she wasn´t going to get married and let her goals go. Her kids should have been her number one responsibility, yet they were in the way of her goals. This is a sad story to me, not uplifting at all.

One more lawyer is born.
One more lawyer to ruin other people´s lives.
One more minion for Satan.
This isn´t a good thing.

Another proud alum of NCCU is crystal Mangum, the prostitute who falsely accused the Duke LaCrosse team players of raping her. (crystal is in prison, for shooting one of her boyfriends.) (I believe in giving credit where credit is due.)

She continued to have kids; thus getting $$$ and all kind of other ´benefits´ from the state. Who paid for this education? To be sure she didn´t.

This is just another example of how these welfare sluts use the system. I am sick of it.

This should be a story of accomplishment but she had a whole support group that pushed her through, including a very strong grandmother and a real father. Not to mention the fact that they raised her children for her, so it´s not like motherhood interfered in any way. I hope the girl is grateful and doesn´t claim too much credit.

She is a liberal, so the childraising is automatically assigned to a variety of other people and institutions. Her living expenses are probably paid for by the government. And her degree probably came the same way the genius in the whitehouse got his....affirmative action and no intelligence.

Maybe if she wanted something different she should have stopped having children by whatever man was handy? Hasn´t she heard of birth control? Or did she need to have those kids so she could get enough welfare to live off of so she could afford college? All the ´odds´ she ´overcame´ she put there herself. I don´t see anything to celebrate in this story.

First in her class at NCCU?
Big deal. It´s not like it is Harvard Law or U of Chicago.
Someone had to be first.

This sounds like "Julia", the 0bama campaign´s composite of a woman availing herself of entitlements throughout her life. OF COURSE we paid for her education, her entire lifestyle and that of her four (and counting) kids.

What´s to celebrate here?

I guess the message here is that you´re praised to the skies if you make multiple bad choices, burdening your existing children with more and more competition for attention in a fatherless environment, get a handout or burdensome debt, and won´t ever be able to repair the emotional damage to your children.

So, its great that someone willfully shackles themselves with poor choices because why? Oh, I forgot. So that you can handle all the inevitable criminal catastrophes you have given birth to.

Amazing story. Earning a degree in chemistry from a competitive school like NC State University is a major accomplishment. In chemistry, your answer is either right or wrong. No fuzzy math allowed. My hat is off to anyone whose brain works that way.

NCCU law school may not be as competitive as UNC Chapel Hill or Duke, but you don´t practice law in North Carolina without passing the state bar exam. This young woman earned her degrees. Best of luck to her.

Another example of bad choice making being held up as a happy-ending role model.

You have two rule-following parents? You stayed in school, got good grades and kept your nose clean? Whatta ya want from us newsies, a gold star?

Thank goodness she set her low sights on lawyer and not oncology diagnostician.

Does help to read the article before commenting. Clearly she made some bad choices in high school that resulted in two babies, and compounded this with two more pregnancies in college...yet she still did not resort to cursed abortions or having kids and laying around as an uneducated welfare mom. Reportedely she worked throughout her undergrad and grad years and enjoyed the support of family in helping to raise her kids. Hope her engagement to the father of her first two kids leads to a lasting and successful marriage and a strong family...

You can bet that she got Pell grants or other grants plus subsidized loans that our grandkids will be endentured to the government to pay for. I hope she keeps that in mind and gives some credit (pun intended) to where it is due.

P.S. I don´t recall that it has ever been news when a male military veteran graduated at the top of his class. I refuse to make "single moms" a privileged class, held up as examples for others to follow.

Teacher resignations up
significantly in Wake County
WTVD News [Raleigh,NC], by Heather Waliga    Original Article
Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 4/18/2014 7:48:00 AM     Post Reply
More than 600 teachers have walked out of Wake County Schools since the start of the school year. The school district says people are leaving for many reasons. Some for jobs in other states. Others are getting out of the profession entirely. However, many have a common reason -- not enough pay.Thursday´s announcement came as the debate over teacher pay escalates. North Carolina teachers haven´t had a pay increase in five years. They currently rank among the lowest paid in the country. School leaders say they´re seeing a 41 increase in teacher resignations over the same period last year, and teachers

´X-Men´ director accused of

A new lawsuit alleges that “X-Men” director Bryan Singer sexually abused an underage boy at a lurid California sex party. The bombshell suit claims the director of blockbuster hits like “Superman Returns” used his position in Hollywood to exploit young men by taking part in a sex ring. The lawsuit, filed by attorney Jeff Herman, charges that Singer attended parties at a mansion in Encino, California where adult males did drugs and had sex with teenage boys.The teen mentioned in the suit never consented to sexual relations with Singer and often persisted, it states, according to a press release from Herman’s

An 89-year-old Navajo woman wants the land she´s lived on all her life to be left to her family once she dies. But here´s the catch; she lives inside a national park, and age-old conflicts between the family and the National Parks Service may prevent that from happening. Stella Peshlakai Smith, who barely speaks any English, was born in what is now the Wupatki National Monument north of Flagstaff in 1924, a month before the land became part of a national park. Her daughter, Helen Peshlakai Davis, says it´s home to her. "There´s no other place that I want to call

The TCM (Turner Classic Movies) cable channel celebrated its twentieth anniversary yesterday. It did so in grand style, rebroadcasting movies from its first day on the air (Gone With the Wind and It Happened One Night). After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Accused O.C. killers likely

Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders. The men were formally Monday charged

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

Three pictures in the
Washingtonian that make

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman    Original Article
Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 4/12/2014 7:10:07 AM     Post Reply
The most decadent Beltway publication yet conceived, Washingtonian, has outdone itself with its latest celebration of what life is like inside the city fueled by your forcibly confiscated money. The publication recently ran with a profile of White House Press Sec. Jay Carney‘s wife, ABC News personality and working mom Claire Shipman. Carney’s two beautiful children are also profiled in the piece, but the profile itself is largely irrelevant. What is worthy of dissection are the three featured images that add value to the profile. And by “value,” we mean guffaws galore.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
