Obama: Coffee shops shouldn´t
have better Internet than schools

Washington Examiner, by Brian Hughes

Original Article

Posted By:grace52, 2/4/2014 3:09:19 PM

President Obama, outlining his push Tuesday to bring high-speed Internet access to more U.S. schools, said Americans should demand the same level of technology in learning facilities as they do in coffee shops. “In a country where we expect free Wi-Fi with our coffee, we should definitely demand it in our schools,” Obama said in Adelphi, Md., highlighting $750 million in new commitments from private companies to put digital learning labs in schools. Under his plan, the Federal Communications Commission will also spend $2 billion to connect 20 million students to wireless technologies.

FTA: “It won´t require a single piece of legislation from Congress. It won´t add a dime to the deficit,” Obama insisted.

Yep, never heard that one before.

Hint for you jug ears: One is privatly owned and operated and the other is heavily regulated (and owned?) by the government.

Need help understanding what this means?

Yet they do because the coffee shop looks to find the best service while the government hands out work to friends and benefactors.

Look no further than your own "healthcare" website for evidence of this, barry, you corrupt buffoon.

Maybe Obama is implying that disbanding public schools and turning them all into private schools is the answer. And if that´s what he´s saying, he´s dead-on right.

(no, I know that´s not what he´s suggesting, but privatizing schools would kill so many birds with one stone)

1) Free enterprise...Ever heard of it?
2) Pay $4.00 for a coffee & get free internet. Yuh think there might be a connection ?
3) I can walk out of a coffee shop to his competitor within 5 minutes and get a deal that I prefer.
4) Internet doesn´t make great students (i.e. throwing money at them). Intact, concerned, families where both parents are not away earning two paycheck hoping to have enough after taxes is a step in the right direction. (Mothers raise children, ´Nannie´ is just a job.

I´ve got more, but that´ll do for a start.

The socialist solution to this desperate problem will be to forbid internet service in Coffee shops, and to craft laws that require full service in public schools at enormous expense.
Except that the money will instead go to Democrat donors.

Our school taxes are very burdensome and I remember a couple of years ago when the school were putting the interactive (?) boards in all the classrooms. Right. Like you´re going to find those on every job you go to. Ooops. No jobs to go to Barry.

I definately do not need to pay any more taxes so that the poor can get internet, or color TVs, or whatever. The poor dears can go out and steal them, like everyone else.

I wish to dissociate myself from the university’s statement, which implies that I was in any way consulted about this decision.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid may have broken Senate ethics and Internet rules by using his official website to attack libertarian campaign donors Charles and David Koch, a possible violation of the chamber´s prohibition on "partisan" material on members´ publicly funded webpages. The post, titled “The Facts About the Koch Brothers,” was moved from the Nevada Democrat´s homepage to a less prominent position on the site Wednesday following inquiries by the Washington Examiner.

Wisconsin ´John Doe´ probe is the latest

Score one for the defense of free speech. Earlier this year, a Wisconsin judge overseeing the secret “John Doe” investigation of conservative groups terminated multiple subpoenas that were used to seize their communications and other records. While this is a victory for First Amendment rights, the abuses continue with the intent to sideline all conservatives before the state´s 2014 elections. More ominously, it appears to be part of a larger effort by left-leaning government officials to use campaign finance rules against one party, despite the law.

The crowing by the Obama administration over getting 7 million people to sign up for mandatory health insurance—with some portion actually paying for it—will soon fade. The big picture will remain clear: Obamacare isn’t working. And Americans, who didn’t like Obamacare when the Democrats passed it four years ago, don’t like it now, don’t want it to remain, and doubt it can be fixed. But they also don’t much want to go back to the pre-Obamacare world. According to Real Clear Politics, a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll of registered voters was the 111th consecutive poll to find more opposition to Obamacare

GOP ramps up planning to replace
Obamacare as Senate prospects rise
Washington Examiner, by David M. Drucker    Original Article
Posted By: grace52- 3/28/2014 10:31:05 AM     Post Reply
The Republican Party´s rising Senate prospects are forcing House Republicans to craft a health care agenda that could function as a feasible legislative blueprint for overhauling Obamacare in January 2015. The Republican-controlled House has approved legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act and reform aspects of the law several times, only to see the bills die in a Democratic-led Senate that is committed to preserving the law. That dynamic would change if Republicans win six Democratic-held seats and assume control of the Senate in November, as appears increasingly possible.

In 2008, both Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain supported defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. In 2012, only Republican Mitt Romney supported traditional marriage, Obama having announced a change of heart six months before the election. What about 2016? It´s impossible to imagine a Democratic candidate not supporting the redefinition of marriage. As for Republicans, it´s hard to see a gay-marriage-supporting candidate make it through the GOP primaries.

Eighteen of the 32 top management jobs in the federal agency that is "ground zero" for running Obamacare are either vacant or filled on an acting basis. The agency is the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight. Its problems start at the top. Gary Cohen´s last day as CCIIO´s deputy administrator after less than two years on the job will be March 31, the latest departure from the agency. Including Cohen´s position, more than half of the most important jobs in CCIIO are either vacant or held by caretaking “acting directors.”

Job security declining for people in unions

Economist Allison Schrager points out a little-noticed shift in the workforce that explains part of the membership problem Big Labor is facing: Union members are now experiencing declining job security. This is notable because job security is a key benefit to joining a union in the first place. Unions are supposed to pressure companies to preserve positions, even in hard times. But even union-dominated industries have seen mass layoffs in recent decades. Also, many of the other benefits that unions provide, like pensions, are only available to people who remain at their jobs for set periods.

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stalled by the “Bridgegate” affair, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has become the establishment´s candidate and top pick to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, according to a new analysis of the race. “We now consider Bush the leader of the field if he decides to run,” said the influential “Crystal Ball” from the University of Virginia´s Center for Politics. “In recent months, we’ve noticed an unmistakable and widespread desire among some of the Republicans we talk to, particularly ones who would be classified as members of the establishment on and off Capitol Hill, for a third Bush nominee in less than three decades.

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

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
