President Barack Obama rolled up his sleeves to help paint bookshelves at a run-down Washington school today to mark a National Day of Service, as Chelsea Clinton helped kick off his three-day inauguration celebration. The former first daughter spoke at a summit on the National Mall to urge people to participate in volunteer projects, saying there´s a chain of service that links generations of Americans from all across the country. Meanwhile, Obama, First Lady, Michelle Obama, and their daughters Malia and Sasha, joined 500 volunteers to spruce up Burrville Elementary School.

Michelle is wearing what looks like welder´s gloves and Barry in all his goofiness is wearing thin exam gloves.
He didn´t dare get paint on his hands lest he ruin his manicure.

Those gloves only had to be worn for about four camera clicks. Meanwhile did anybody actually listen to what Chelsea Gardiner had to say??

Three words: Colossally. Stoopit.

1. I know he´s in no way "up to" his day job, but sheesh, that is what he should spend his time on.

2. You can bet his deigning to appear [read: making a campaign stop to keep the LoFos on board] resulted in a huge net loss of productive volunteer hours. a. shut the place down for a Secret Service sweep; b. turn everything upside down for the day for a half-hour photo-op for Stinky; c. make a bunch of real volunteers stand around pointlessly wasting their time.

3. Waitaminnit: how is it that a D elementary school got all run down? With all the "it´s for the children" miasma in the air? With the $20,000-a-year per pupil spending in DC? With the superlative social milieu of DC´s residents?

4. FTA: The former first daughter spoke at a summit on the National Mall to urge people to participate in volunteer projects, saying there´s a chain of service that links generations of Americans from all across the country.

We at Shloss Veritas are wholly disgusted by and fed up with the Leftist collectivist myth of and lust for "the commune." Real achievement is individual, for the individual´s goals.

Run down Elementary school in DC? I don´t believe a word of it. Not one word.

How do you get your hands dirty from a proctologist glove except maybe from putting them on inside out after use. I think that guy needs to go get hisself a shot of bacteriolidgy eliminator..... Them rundown schools in DC has to be a hotbed of aids and bacteriologicalally enhanced black light evading evil twin flu viruses. He needs some Geritol quick!

National Day of Service has such a communist ring to it.

I believe the new bangs are to hide the perpetual scowl. No camera person will catch her frowning during the most recent coronation.

the average spending per student in DC is now around $30,000/year (getting close to the cost of going to Yale minus the room/board). The average pay per teacher is $90,000/year, and has gone up 5%.

hard to understand with those numbers how a school in DC can be described as "run-down". More apt phrase might have been "mismanaged", or "plundered"

you gotta read through this to believe it..
this is from the census bureau, and contains all sort of info about school expenditures

http://www2.census.gov/govs/school/10f33pub.pdf

if you read the DC school website, they basically don´t tell y ou the true about how much money they spend per student.

In actuality, the per student expenditures, and the teacher pay per student, is the highest in the country by a mile.

I`m sure this event now qualifies Chelsea to be a senator from New York. Let`s see, she `earned` a degree from Stanford in something or other, which is weird since she was hardly ever there - then she immediately got hired on Wall St. and paid 6-figures for a job she didn`t know how to do - then NBC hired her to do interviews, which mostly consisted of asking her parents `in depth` questions. Yah, I`d say she`s ready to be a senator.

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 5:14:55 AM     Post Reply
California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

Morgado´s ´Hot Jesus´:

On Easter weekend, Diogo Morgado portraying Jesus Christ is on screens everywhere. Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force.

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

Democrats seek to reshape midterm

Democrats have a problem and everyone knows it. President Obama calls it a “congenital disease.” If they can’t control it, Obama could spend the final years of his presidency battling not only a Republican House but also a Republican Senate. Democrats don’t vote in midterm elections. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but the core of the Democratic coalition is made up of many people who turn out to vote only in presidential elections. The Republican coalition — older and whiter — suffers less from midterm falloff.So much has been made of the building blocks the president assembled to win his

Once the province of activists and stoners, the traditional pot holiday of April 20 has gone mainstream in the first state in the nation to legalize recreational marijuana. Tens of thousands gathered for a weekend of Colorado cannabis-themed festivals and entertainment, from a marijuana industry expo called the Cannabis Cup at a trade center north of downtown, to 4/20-themed concerts at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater — acts include Slightly Stoopid and Snoop Dog — to a massive festival in the shadow of the state capitol where clouds of cannabis smoke are expected to waft at 4:20 p.m. MDT Sunday.

Last night, Chris Hayes face off against Assemblywoman Michele Fiore over the ongoing saga of the Bundy Ranch. Fiore reminds us why we love TV. (Video) Fiore for the win! The Assemblywoman is feisty, unflappable, stays on message, goes at Hayes hard, and comes out looking great. A terrific segment and a good interview by Hayes, amazingly enough. The best part was when she left him flat-footed right at the end after catching him with the slaughter question. Although Hayes salvages the moment for himself with the barbecue crack.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
