Obama to lay out details
of universal pre-kindergarten
plan in Decatur

Journal-Constitution [Atlanta GA], by Nancy Badertscher & Greg Bluestein

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/14/2013 10:09:30 AM

President Barack Obama is expected to propose during his Thursday visit to metro Atlanta that the federal government expand the Head Start preschool program, which is designed to prepare children from low-income families for school. Obama also plans to back a new partnership with states to provide preschool for every 4-year-old from low- and middle-income families, according to details from the White House that emerged hours before his scheduled visit. The plan would be funded through with federal matching dollars for public preschool slots for families who earn at or below 200 percent of the poverty level.

Won´t help. He needs to support intact families...that´s real key. Talk to any teacher.

A study several years indicated that children given the advantage of pre-school lost that advantage a few years into the regular school routine.

This is nothing but state-funded day care. More out-of-control entitlements. If parents do not want the responsibility of caring for very young children, they should not have them. Don´t expect your neighbor to pay for care.

Indoctrinate the Children...right out of the Marxist Manafesto! Our Union run ´education´ system has been doing it for years and a majority of parents just don´t get why their kids are Commies!

Is there any area, even a tiny area, of our lives that Obama does not want to control and dominate. He is a power-hungry monster. The most frightening thing about him is that a significant portion of the American public worships him.

That´s a great idea plus it´s free it won´t add one "dime" to the deficit! /s

What an idiot he is. His ideology blinds him to the truth. If expanded it will end up costing billions of dollars we don´t have for another program we don´t need. Both parties are addicted to spending. The fiscal cliff is fast approaching.

Every parent should REFUSE to attend this nightmare of marxist indoctrination. He wants to take your kids away; he wants your kids to love the government, not the country, but the government; he wants the kids to betray their parents when they talk ill of the government they were taught to love.

NO NO NO

I guess that the $50Billion to run this abomination will come from military budgets or more taxes on the rich earners, not those who already have their money hidden.

Classroom space, teachers, buses. Yes, I can see how that won´t add to the deficit.

Here in AZ, we went from half-day to full-day kindergarten. Janet Napolitano, our governor before she became "Big Sis," used it as a bribe for political support. It is a free daycare program. Full day is great for kids who are ready, but a nightmare for the immature and slightly younger kids. You can bet that parents whose kids barely miss the age cutoff whine until their 4 10/12 year-olds are permitted to go to kindergarten. Don´t even get me started on the early drop off and late pickups for parents who can´t be bothered to pay for and arrange for the daycare center buses to collect their kids.

Then our local district started an all-day preschool program at one school. Little kids were bused from all over the district. That meant you had four-year-olds stuck in a classroom all day. I saw those kids and they were whiny, tired and lots were sucking their thumbs.

Didn´t I read that billions of dollars were spent on Head Start, with little to show for the expenditure?

Middle class moms, you are working because you have to pay for these programs for yourselves and all the non-working people (won´t call them unemployed as most never want to be employed). So, you´re leaving your children to be raised by others so that others don´t have to raise theirs either. Is that the deal that you want?

I too agree with #4. If this is the direction 0bama and his Marxist regime are heading it won´t be long before the statists just take your baby and you will be allowed sparse visitation rights after they have completed their brainwashing and the child has dutifully pleged their allegiance to the state. I´m sick of hearing their bleating that "it´s for the children." They are blatant, pathological liars who just want more money to dole out to their union comrades.

#1, you are mistaken. It will work beautifully on those children who enter it. There are a lot of children whose parents have already made them resistant to indoctrination by the time they are five, getting them into the education camps...I mean schools, a year earlier will give the government an additional year at an age when children are even more susceptible to indoctrination.

Oh, you thought this was about turning out better educated children. No, no, no, if they wanted educated children they would encourage one of the parents to stay home and teach them themselves.

More union dues for the NEA or AFT. Nothing more.
Studies of Head Start have shown anything gained is lost by third grade.
And PBS actually held a conference, about 20 years ago, to discuss Sesame Street. The results of studies showed that all children, regardless of race, gained by watching Sesame Street. And the conference participants actually brainstormed for ways to deny access to Sesame Street by white chillun. Seriously.

The concept of, ´´pre-kindergarten,´´ is a recent development in the U.S.A. by statist pols whose PC agenda is indeed to micro-manage everyone in the U.S.A. from the, ´cradle to the grave.´ ...Not so coincidentally, since the radical community activists like 0bama have been pushing their approach of fracturing the American family even more than their vile NEA-deemed public school policies already have, the public educational system in the USA has continued to tank. America´s educational system excelled until just a couple of decades ago, when the ´60s militants attained tenure! Their statist policies are demonstrably dumbing-down America´s children and youths with their failed, ´progressive/socialist,´ policies and degenerate social tangent! Now they are even going for pre-school children?!! -YIKES!!!

Better beware of this wacky socialist power grab over children!

What George W. Bush misses the most

Former President George W.

"I mean I miss the people I served with. I miss Air Force One. In eight years they never lost my baggage," he said to laughter.

As American voters watch ObamaCare continue its Godzilla-like rampage across the national health-care landscape, it´s worth considering the collateral damage this political monster may be doing to the Democratic brand itself. What if ObamaCare´s problems become a metaphor for the modern Democratic Party? Two portents emerged the past week. The United Auto Workers suffered a humiliating defeat at Volkswagen VOW3.XE -0.49% in Tennessee. And days before that loss, voters San Diego elected Republican Kevin Faulconer mayor after he teed up his opponent as a captive of the city´s public unions. Two big constituencies sacked in a week.

Toluca (Mexico)- US President Barack Obama joined the Mexican and Canadian leaders Wednesday for a North American summit focused on trade but marked by friction between the "three amigos." Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto shook hands with Obama in an ornate state government palace in Toluca, near Mexico City, for private one-on-one talks before Prime Minister Stephen Harper joined them later. The partners of the 20-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) are locked in several thorny disputes likely to surface in the talks and at a joint closing news conference.

The Department of Homeland Security warned airlines Wednesday of a potential shoe-bomb threat on overseas flights to the United States. DHS urges passenger airlines to be vigilant because they say credible intelligence suggests that a terrorist could be planning to detonate an explosive hidden in shoes. But the flight’s country of origin or time of departure are not known. A DHS official confirmed that they regularly share relevant information about threats with domestic and international partners. "These types of regular communications are part of that important priority," the official said.

Picking up a gallon of milk at the grocery store is getting pricier and the cost could hit a record high for U.S. consumers in March, analysts warned. Strong global demand and stagnant production in other countries has led to increased exports of U.S. dairy products in recent months, generating more money for dairy farmers but resulting in likely price hikes of 10-20 percent at the retail level in some markets, according to analysts. "Demand has been greater than supply for the last several months," said U.S. dairy analyst Jerry Dryer. "Prices are peaking."

There´s a debate going on about Hillary Clinton´s past. If she runs for president in 2016, should Republicans reach back to the scandals of her years as First Lady? Or should they focus on more recent times, especially her tenure as Secretary of State, to build a case against her? The GOP doesn´t have to choose. Of course Clinton´s recent experiences are relevant to a presidential run. But so are her actions in the 90s, the 80s and even the 70s. It´s not ancient history; it reveals something about who Clinton was and still is. And re-examining her past is entirely consistent with practices in recent campaigns. In the 2012 presidential race,

According to the documents, the FBI has been concerned about these facilities for about 12 years, but cannot act against them because the U.S. State Department has not yet declared that their umbrella group, MOA/Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. MOA stands for Muslims of the Americas, which is linked to radical Pakistani Muslim cleric Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani.

Geraldo Rivera got remarkably candid in a conversation with The Blaze’s Will Cain about his desire not to outlive his own fame. He even admitted that part of the reason he’s been to dangerous places like Libya and Iraq is because he’s “been looking to get killed in action for years.” Rivera said he doesn’t want to be one of those guys who, when they die, everyone will point out how great they used to be, and that’s why he stays engaged. And, in addition to that, he likes having a little bit of danger in his life: “I want to die with

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 17, 2014 – President Barack Obama has elevated the right to have sex with a member of the same sex to the level of universal “fundamental freedoms” in a new presidential statement criticizing Uganda. But critics say his promotion of homosexuality in a continent that overwhelmingly opposes that behavior amounts to a form of liberal “cultural imperialism.” Obama wrote on Sunday that he opposed a proposed bill in Uganda that would criminalize same-sex “marriages” and impose life imprisonment for repeated homosexual acts, among other provisions, because “as a country and a people, the United States has consistently

Freshman Senator Ted Cruz says many things that need to be said and says them well. Moreover, some of these things are what many, if not most, Americans believe wholeheartedly. Yet we need to remember that the same was true of another freshman Senator, just a relatively few years ago, who parlayed his ability to say things that resonated with the voters into two terms in the White House. Who would disagree that if you want your doctor, you should be able to keep your doctor? Who would disagree with the idea of a more transparent administration in Washington, or

Foreign Policy: John Kerry calls global warming "the world´s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction." Has the secretary of state forgotten the world´s real WMDs? Or is he just off his medication? There´s a long list of Cabinet secretaries and senior aides to President Obama who have failed the nation so resoundingly they should be shown the door. But Secretary John Kerry, who dumped his military decorations in 1971 and was dumped by voters as a presidential candidate in 2004, should definitely be the first one out. In a pathetic attempt to distract from the Obama administration's foreign policy failures,

The Girl Scouts of the USA has sent threatening letters to at least two small pro-life groups that have been critical of Girl Scout collaborations with Planned Parenthood and other abortion advocacy groups. Since the beginning of the Girl Scout cookie boycott, exclusively announced at Breitbart News late last month, LifeNews has extensively reported on the connection between Planned Parenthood and the Girl Scouts. LifeNews editor Steve Ertelt announced Monday that he had received a letter threatening legal action. In it, Girl Scout executive Brian Crawford complained about “articles that outline alleged ties to Planned Parenthood” and that “GSUSA has

Raising the minimum wage to $10.10 by 2016 will help "people who just want to work hard," but it also will help those who want to "work less," White House economic adviser Gene Sperling told MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" on Wednesday. He argued that Americans support raising the minimum wage because it will lift "struggling" families out of poverty: "But they also know what it´s like to see a friend, a neighbor, where one spouse goes back to work, who would prefer maybe not to work. Maybe they´re working part-time just to supplement the family´s income. And they think, if that

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel (R-Ky.) are now in position to end the Tea Party’s death grip on the Republican Party’s political future. Last week, Boehner and McConnell faced down the Tea Party’s threat to cripple the government when they supported raising the nation’s debt ceiling. That move prevented GOP political suicide. If the nation’s credit rating, stocks and the recovery went down the sewer because of Republicans’ refusal to raise the debt ceiling, the GOP’s chances in the midterm elections would have been severely damaged. Having successfully defied the Tea Party on the debt ceiling, now

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says there is “absolutely no evidence” that the Affordable Care Act will drive down employment, despite a report from the Congressional Budget Office released Feb. 4 predicting fewer people would be working. “There is absolutely no evidence, and every economist will tell you this, that there is any job-loss related to the Affordable Care Act,” Sebelius told reporters in Orlando, Fla., on Monday. “Part-time physicians are actually down since 2010, not up. The number of full-time workers continues to increase. I know that’s a popular myth that continues to be repeated but it

I had breakfast at Republique on La Brea Avenue on Tuesday, and here´s how the tab broke down: Cafe Americano — $3.25 ~Quiche — $5~Tax — 0.77~ Surcharge Healthy LA — 0.25 ~The last item is the one creating a little controversy at the new high-end restaurant in the old Campanile space. The owners are adding a 3% fee to every bill, which they say will pay for healthcare insurance for all their employees, from hostesses and bartenders to dishwashers and potato peelers.
