Obama to urge adults to mentor
black and Hispanic boys

Washington Times, by Dave Boyer

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 5/30/2014 7:43:19 AM

President Obama will call on all American adults Friday to make a long-term commitment to mentoring black and Hispanic boys as part of his initiative to help young men of color succeed in school. Aides said Mr. Obama will review with his Cabinet Friday a report from a White House task force on his program called “My Brother’s Keeper,” which he launched in February. “It is important that all children have caring adults who are engaged in their lives,” the report states. “But too many young people lack this support. For example, roughly two-thirds of black and one-third of Hispanic children live

They´d succeed in school if they would shut up, sit down and pay attention but I don´t think that´s accepted in their culture. And we mustn´t criticize their "vibrant" culture.

A lot of the problems of disadvantaged youth would disappear with good male role models in their formative years. Gov programs seem to have worked to the contrary, unfortunately.

While the Resident´s statements are noble, reality has to speak. The big brother/sister programs (apparently he did not read the newspaper) have been around for years, and have not made a dent in the size of the problem

1. The name of the program, My Brother’s Keeper, has religious overtones - where are the usual suspects complaining?

2. What about poor disadvantaged native American and white boys? Are they not your brothers also.

3. Is this related to the Dem war on women? So far - all the government is doing is supporting the PP targeting of black and Hispanic women.

Not that I agree with the premise "it takes a village"--but why not black and Hispanic boys and GIRLS? Why don´t all those successful people of color attending WH parties do some mentoring? What happened to Boys (and Girls) Clubs of America? Why does Big Brothers/Big Sisters have an overabundance of children of color in need of mentoring, but an underabundance of adults of color to help them?

Most of us are trying to raise our own children and grandchildren and provide them with the necessary tools to succeed in life without lying, stealing and otherwise ruining themselves, families, neighbors and society in general. Those adults who have already raised/helped raise the children in their extended families are now at the stage where they´re experiencing failing health, much of it from working hard, often more than one job. Most of us don´t have the stamina to do the job that should be done by the child´s family.

My son had a Big Brother and that BB has remained like a family member for many years. While my son was actually in the program, he and I did volunteer work for BB and I also helped out a Battered Women´s program and similar programs, and continued that "payback" for years--although I admit I devoted my energies exclusively to animal rescue somewhere along the way--because my jaded self found it far more rewarding. I still do a bit of volunteering--for the local police department. Why? It gives them more time to concentrate on the streets to keep the Attercliffes and their neighborhood safe.

When I was in the UK and someone was asking a bit too much the response was, "Get off my back and walk, I´ve carried you far enough." Let O´s rich friends do more carrying and less partying.

#12, What the President is saying is that the cultures that nurture Black and Hispanic boys are – in some way – deficit, so that an extra effort must be made to overcome those cultures’ deficiencies.

Whereas, White and Indian cultures, and women in all the groups mentioned above, are properly nurtured and don’t need the extra program.

I can´t figure out whether I´m being sarcastic or not with this comment.

Obama is such a fine father figure, why doesn´t he lead the way? Teaching your children to succeed by being lazy, incompetent and greedy does them no favors. I can´t wait to see where his girls are by age 25.

Closing those festering swamps called public schools, ending the communist/socialist/liberal indoctrination and putting the money into proper American education for these "disadvantaged" youth would be a good first step.

Back in October 2010, Matthew Eckel had an article in American Thinker: The Real Meaning of "My Brother´s Keeper."

This is such an elementary point that I fear making it will seem silly. On the other hand, so many people seem so completely in the dark about it that it is worth stating the obvious. Claiming to be "my brother´s keeper," as President Obama is so wont to spout, is an insult to the brother. (snip)

But what was Cain actually saying when he uttered those words to God? The Hebrew word used here for "keeper" means more than "protector" or "defender"; it is more akin to "overseer" or "master," as in "keeping" sheep (1 Samuel 17:20, 22); royal wardrobes (2 Kings 22:14); the king´s forest (Nehemiah 2:3, 3:29); gates (1 Chronicles 9:19); vineyards (Song of Solomon 1:6); and the temple threshold (Jeremiah 52:24) [ii]. Although these jobs are foreign to most of us, we can get the sense of them by thinking "zookeeper" or "doorkeeper.

For visual effect, maybe Zero can have St. Skittles money-grubbing hypocritical parents sitting on the front row of this speech, as long as we´re discussing parental neglect.

Of course, since unemployment is way up among young men of color during Zero´s reign of error, maybe Zero should first address the problem that resides in his mirror.

Jon Stewart to Hillary Clinton:

Posted By: Drive- 7/16/2014 2:43:06 PM     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton appeared Tuesday on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to promote her book, "Hard Choices." Stewart briefly discussed the 656-page tome about Clinton´s tenure as secretary of state and then asked exactly what everyone is wondering. "No one cares," about the book, he said. "They just want to know if you´re running for president." Stewart, like so many, tried to get the answer -- even telling Clinton that it sounded like she had just declared that she was running. Like so many others Stewart couldn´t confirm anything, but he gets points for asking the most creative questions.

The rumors that Rupert Murdoch was interested in purchasing Time Warner gained some shape and form Wednesday morning, as the New York Times reported that sources said Murdoch made an $80 billion offer for the TV-cable-film-magazine conglomerate, only to be rebuffed. Fox approached Time Warner in June and offered to pay $85 a share on Time Warner stock; the combined company would be worth about $65 billion in revenue. Per the Times, Murdoch is especially interested in Time Warner’s broadcast rights to sport events like basketball and baseball games, to help grow Fox’s sports footprint.

The chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee attacked the Obama administration late Tuesday after the White House said a top political aide to the president would defy a subpoena and not appear at a hearing investigating the White House Office of Political Strategy and Outreach. The White House argued that David Simas, the office´s director, is immune from the "extraordinary demand" of being forced to testify before the committee. White House counsel Neil Eggleston said in a letter Tuesday night to Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., that the Simas subpoena "threatens longstanding interests of the executive branch in preserving the

Politicians in Germany have devised an ingenious solution to combat the threat of eavesdropping by American spies: playing classical music during their meetings. MPs who sit on the spying committee had become so concerned that US agents might listen in to their discussions that they had ordered classical music to be played, to drown out the discussions. On arrival at the meeting, The Suddetusche Zeitung reported that for "security reasons" MPs had to put their mobile phones and computers into a large metal box to ensure that they were not subjected to outside surveillance.

Israel escalated its offensive against Hamas on Wednesday, carrying out dozens of air strikes and warning about 100,000 Palestinians to leave their homes in the Gaza Strip by a deadline of 8am. The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) held fire for six hours on Tuesday in accordance with an Egyptian ceasefire plan, but an official statement said that Hamas continued to launch rockets, killing one civilian. “When it was clear that Hamas had no intention of ceasing its fire after it had launched over 75 rockets, the political echelon approved the IDF to resume targeting terror sites across the Gaza Strip,”

Less than 3 percent of the U.S. population identify themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Tuesday in the first large-scale government survey measuring Americans’ sexual orientation. The National Health Interview Survey, which is the government’s premier tool for annually assessing Americans’ health and behaviors, found that 1.6 percent of adults self-identify as gay or lesbian, and 0.7 percent consider themselves bisexual. The overwhelming majority of adults, 96.6 percent, labeled themselves as straight in the 2013 survey.

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore.
