Hopefully this awareness will herald the beginning of the end of the malignant growth of “The Administrators”. A cancerous curse growing at the expense of the students. See: Administrators Ate My Tuition
“It’s kind of a weird thing that’s happened with American society—this idea that you have to have a college degree to be a respectable member of the middle class,” says Glenn Reynolds, professor of law at the University of Tennessee and purveyor of the popular Instapundit blog. Reynolds’ latest work, The New School: How the Information Age Will Save American Education From Itself, looks at the higher education bubble and how parents, students, and educators can remake the education system. Reynolds sat down with Reason TV’s Alexis Garcia to discuss why Americans are spending more for a college education and how students are responding to increasing tuition costs. “Given how expensive it is to go to college, there has to be a return sufficient to make it worth the time and especially the money,” Reynolds states. “You’re seeing declining enrollment in some schools and you’re seeing much more price resistance on the part of both parents and students.”The discussion also includes Reynolds’ take on school choice, the upcoming elections, the current state of the blogosphere, and whether or not both political parties are necessary. Nearly a decade after Reynolds published An Army of Davids: How Markets and Technology Empower Ordinary People to Beat Big Media, Big Government, and Other Goliaths, the blogfather still remains optimistic about technology’s ability to empower the individual and inspire grassroots movements.
The US Income tax code has over 70,000 pages, the IRS has proven itself to be a politically driven weapon utilized by political hacks and manned by goonion members whose one ambition is arguably to expand their influence over the lives of its “subjects” while milking the public in order to provide for the bloated, oppressive agency modeled of “The Sheriff of Nottingham”.

A Senator lady
Got the news one day
The country’s being spied onby the NSA
So she went out defendingon each TV set
but when she found out she’d been snooped on
she got all upset
And isn’t it ironic?
I mean, don’t you think?It’s like you’re at Chris Brown’s
and there’s punch in the fridge
or if The Bachelor passed a geography quiz
Learning Ted Kennedy happened to be good at bridge.
And who would have thought? It figures. Senator, this may surprise youa nd the irony bites but Congresspeople ain’t the only ones
with 4th Amendment rights
It’s like a minimalist
who does their laundry with All
or if Woody Allen liked to watch Kids in the Hall
it’s like FDR got locked in a Honda Accord
a cheap healthcare plan that you just can’t afford
If Oscar Pistorius really hated The Doors
and who would have thought?
It figures. I heard the government is sneaking up on you.
Life has a funny, funny wayof calling you out, calling you out.
Authorities destroy cameras to prevent account of raid…
When critics warn about the dangers of police militarization, this is what we\’re talking about. You’ll see the raid team, dressed in battle-dress uniforms, helmets and face-covering balaclava hoods take down the family’s door with a battering ram. You’ll see them storm the home with ballistics shields, guns at the ready. More troubling still, you’ll see not one but two officers attempt to prevent the family from having an independent record of the raid, one by destroying a surveillance camera, another by blocking another camera’s lens.
RAID FILMED: Ankeny Police ‘Traumatize’ Family in IowaANKENY,
IOWA WHOTV: New information regarding the story reported Monday night regarding a search warrant that was executed at a Des Moines home, looking for about $1000 worth of items purchased with a stolen credit card. Ankeny police spokeswoman Captain Makai Echer says officers consider several factors when deciding whether to send officers similar to a SWAT team to a house to serve a warrant, or simply knock on the door.In this case, Echer says, officers looked at suspect’s criminal histories and whether there could be firearms in the home. Of the three suspects that were present in the home, one has a violent arrest record for two assaults about 13-years ago and a domestic assault.Another suspect did have a permit to carry a weapon. Echer would not comment on whether that played a role in the decision. She would also not comment on whether it was appropriate for a police officer to rip a security camera from the front of the house after officers had already entered.
Question: Which American institution—one that prides itself on being open, democratic, and diverse—punishes its members severely for offering unpopular opinions, while it offers them a very narrow, limited worldview? Answer: Universities. Once the vanguard of open debate and free speech, colleges have become a place where alternative thinking goes to die. Students who speak out on behalf of traditional American ideals, unfortunately, are often silenced by college administrators. Learn how the college campus, a place that should be an intellectual melting pot, has turned into anything but, violating the rights of those who have alternate opinions.Lecturer: Greg Lukianoff, President at The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education.

Despite the overt allusions to class warfare and a focus on a tarnished and out-moded socialist narrative of rich-vs-poor, Elysium is primarily about immigration \”reform\” and the stalled effort in Congress to pass legislation legalizing millions of illegal aliens. Idealized and romanticized pet liberal causes come in second.
LBJ’s 1965 immigration law changes to change the immigrant population from Europeans fleeing socialism to other ethnicities seeking socialism hasn’t worked totally as planned (domination by a certain pandering political party) so this seems to be the revenge or maybe simply resurgence of the HUAC “victims”.
We see the results of our oikophobic chief executive’s “shared dream” as Hollande has France circling the drain. Of course it may be the point, after all you need almost (if not total) dictatorial power in order to force people to submit in order to survive. N’est ce pas?
From RT, the Russian 24/7 English Language News Channel (They know a thing or two about collectivism)
As if the French President didn’t have enough on his mind this week over his alleged affair with an actress. There are domestic problems of a more official nature he’s got to answer for, if he’s to keep his new year’s resolution to revive the country’s debt-heavy, sluggish economy.
Years of deliberate miseducation of American youth by Teachers’ Unions and teachers who had below average SATs going into college have conspired to produce a population of youth designed to be wards of the state in order to assure rule by collectivists who will support squalor as long as it leads to their rule. Old Soviet joke, “We pretend to work, they pretend to pay us”.
Maybe that is one one reason that no high schooler that I have ever questioned knows about the abject failure of America’s first collectivist attempt that had to be abandoned in order for survival, The Mayflower Compact.
