Brainwashed by Obama
Washington Times, by Josh Krisinger

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/8/2013 8:56:45 PM

In 2008, I was a 21-year old college junior and first-time voter. At the time, I had an opportunity to shake then-Sen. Barack Obama’s hand as he marched out from the student center at Georgia Tech, my college, to address a packed crowd in downtown Atlanta. Sparked by this encounter and riding the anti-Bush bandwagon, I checked my ballot box for Mr. Obama on Election Day, and optimistically began to look for the hope and change he promised. Little has improved since then, and the experience left a sour taste in my mouth toward democracy.

Comments:
This is a stunning article and one that is not surprising. The leftists must be absolutely joyful that they have been successful in brainwashing students since they were knee high and now we have millions of them that believe the opposite of what we believe about our nation. Isn´t it sad that we didn´t have the internet long ago so more people could have been informed the truth about what was really going on. I for one sure didn´t. That is just one of the reasons they are so far ahead of us in achieving their malicious goals.

Josh is a young man, who made a young man´s mistake. It sounds like he knows better now.

I too came to my senses at 26, and have retained them now for more than 30 years. My idea of the Republican "big tent" has absolutely nothing to to do with tribalist nonsense like race, gender, ethnicity, age. It has to do with the individual mind and whether it can grasp the concepts of freedom and responsibility. Sounds to me as if Josh has now passed the test. I hope we can save our bashing for those who have not.

Easy #1. The young man has admitted his mistake and will be better for it. How many others who are older than him are still stuck on stooooopid ?

based on what my two college student sons tell me, college students are some of the biggest lofo voters out there. It´s so sad, considering what you would think a higher level educational environment is all about: critical thinking, the exchange of ideas... But it´s not like that.

College education lost a lot of value right about the time affirmative action started being pushed by the government and the quality of education had to be dumbed way down to compensate. The bar was already being lowered to cater to athletes but AA pushed it over the cliff. I´m wondering now when Asian families are going to figure out that they are wasting their money by sending their children to US schools when their own are probably better at this point in time.

This is what is wrong with Brain-dead morons like Josh! His parents did not raise him think independently, but think in a "group think".

Higher education lost its value when the federal government began passing out money hand over fist to fund anyone and everyone to go to school. Call me a jerk, but not everyone should be in a university, especially on the tax-payer´s dime.

Josh?

Now you can really make the world a better place and transform the USA ...

... inform your friends and convince them to vote right next time.

Otherwise - you haven´t learned a thing.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste, Josh.

The decline of college education has resulted from political correctness trumping critical thinking, the various "Studies" programs be treated as serious curricula; how many employers are looking for graduates who majored in Chicano Studies? Grade inflation has played no small part. It used to be that the dolts would get a "gentleman´s C", now they get an A for showing up. Freshmen now are routinely enrolled in remedial programs so that they can catch up on all the stuff they didn´t learn in high school. However, if you want to spend four years swilling beer, doing drugs and bedding bimbos, college ain´t a bad place to be at all.

Josh got a clue and got serious. Don´t you read the articles? Why are people jumping all over someone who is now on our side? One person insists that Josh must convince his peers of the error of their ways. What a responsibility to put on his shoulders. It is a mission impossible. Forgive us, Josh, for our unreasonable and unrelenting insistence on flogging our own.

Give this kid a break. Most of us probably had 100 times better education than what is being dished out today. The fact that he was able to "figure it out" tells you that there is hope.

Josh was understandably confused in the Obama- McCain election. How could a new voter tell the candidates apart? Aside from the fact that one had defended his country and had decades of experience in government and military command, and the other had given up his law license, had no experience in business, made little impact in the state legislature, probably less in the Congress, and that the younger candidate´s platform was clearly and admittedly to " spread the wealth ", which requires government to take money from one citizen and give it to another, what was there to choose between them? Not like Parcheesi or Tiddlywkinks, and therefore too complex for Josh.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live. In just 11 days the touching video has racked up close to 30 million hits on YouTube and his fame now reaches to every corner of the earth. As his video gathered traction online Fr Kelly was a guest on RTE’s “Late Late Show.” He told host Ryan Tubridy that he hoped his new found fame

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called 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

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

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

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
