Time magazine has a cover story out that’s causing a fair amount of outrage, but for all the wrong reasons. The story is headlined, “Rotten Apples: It’s nearly impossible to fire a bad teacher. Some tech millionaires may have found a way to change that.” Since then, some 70,000 people signed an online petition calling for a public apology over Time’s supposed smearing of teachers. Time has sensibly invited a series of responses to the piece on its website.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said this morning that it’s taking a “sophisticated operation” in Wisconsin to try to push Gov. Scott Walker to re-election.
The latest Real Clear Politics polling average has the race a dead heat, with Walker just 0.2 points ahead of Democratic candidate Mary Burke.
“I think he’s doing well,” Priebus told MSNBC, adding that he thinks Walker will win. “And it’s really a matter of the ground game there.”
“I really think that Scott’s doing great. Here’s the issue with Wisconsin. I think you understand. There’s about 4 percent that are undecided total,” he continued. “It’s like polling that you’ve never seen anywhere in the country. And the other issue is you have both parties in Wisconsin that are about the two best parties in the country as far as turnout.”
“And, you know, that’s why you’re seeing Scott Walker right now on about a 30-city bus tour firing up the base and getting people out to vote.”

Americans are living in Panic City over Ebola thanks to the now-lethal incompetence of Obola Obama.
He has allowed his fascist political ideology to become homicidally criminal. He refuses to close our southern border from illegal invasion causing epidemics and to bar entry to anyone from Ebola-stricken countries as that would be the failure of his Amnesty goal of millions of new Democrat voters.

Thomas Peterffy grew up in socialist Hungary. Despite the fact that he could not speak English when he immigrated to the United States in 1956, Thomas fulfilled the American dream. With hard work and dedication, he started a business that today employs thousands of people. In the 1970s, Thomas bought a seat on the American Stock Exchange. He played a key role in developing the electronic trading of securities and is the founder of Interactive Brokers, an online discount brokerage firm with offices all over the world.
Long owning the default position, the pure, tolerant Democrats easily assume a morally superior attitude while labeling those who differ from their point of view as morally deficient, quickly dousing dissenters with the 2008-2012 election buzz word–racist.
Uh, uh; I know better and so do you and so does Charlie Martin of PJ Tatler, factually exposing the Democrats as the real racists. Long term, pervasive racists at that, but no surprise there.
A few examples:
* It was Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Democrat, who founded the Ku Klux Klan.
* Woodrow Wilson segregated Federal Buildings and jobs after 50 years of integration under largely Republican administrations.
* It was the Democrat Party in the South that instituted Jim Crow Laws.
* It was the Democrat Party in the South that instituted “separate but equal”.
* It was the Democrat Party in the South that supported the Ku Klux Klan.

Economists, Military Strategists and Others Warned Us … Long Ago
We’ve known for 4,000 years that debts need to be periodically written down, or the entire economy will collapse. And see this.
We’ve known for 2,500 years that prolonged war bankrupts an economy.
We’ve known for 1,900 years that rampant inequality destroys societies.
We’ve known for thousands of years that debasing currencies leads to economic collapse.
We’ve known for hundreds of years that the failure to punish financial fraud destroys economies, as it destroys all trust in the financial system.
We’ve known for hundreds of years that monopolies and the political influence which accompanies too much power in too few hands is dangerous for free markets.

“From the first moment I heard about Che, Ernesto Guevara,” gushes Columbia University’s SDS (Student’s for a Democratic Society) leader in 1968 Mark Rudd, “he was my man, or, rather, I was his. Brilliant, young, idealistic, a daring commander of rebels, willing to risk his life to free the people of the world, I wanted to be like him. I was a member of the cult of Che. Who wouldn’t fall for this rifle-toting poet…?”
Columbia University College Republicans, for one. The Young America’s Foundation (YAF,) for another. Indeed such is these organizations’ penchant for blowing raspberries and horse-laughs at the staggering imbecilities swallowed (and spouted ) by gasping groupies like Mark Rudd that they’re a staging a “No More Che Day” at Mark Rudd’s own Columbia University on Oct. 9th.
My name is David and I am an OPM addict.
Actually, that is not true; I am not addicted. I might be one of the very few people in this house who is not, because addiction to OPM is a national crisis and I am surrounded by addicts.
I am not talking about the drug opium but something far more terrible. I am talking about an addiction to other people’s money.
The great economist Milton Friedman taught us that there are four ways to spend money: spending your own money on yourself; spending your own money on somebody else; spending other people’s money on yourself; and spending other people’s money on somebody else.

The View is a television show that, apparently, a lot of women watch. Currently, Rosie O’Donnell, who was once famous for something–I have no idea what–is one of the hosts. Still, many women watch. So this video of The View’s women grappling with the Obama administration’s response to ISIS terrorism is noteworthy.
I want to highlight O’Donnell’s contribution near the end: We are bombing Syria because Syria has so much oil, so there is a “financial incentive.” What the Hell is this supposed to mean? Why are liberals obsessed with oil? And what, exactly, is the “financial incentive”? Here is the clip, then some further comments:
