Song of the week: This Time, Earl Klugh


Critical thinking as defined by is the mental process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating information to reach an answer or conclusion.

I was a Liberal for about 1 year--- Along with being a college student I became a member of PETA and my Sociology & Philosophy Profs could do or say no wrong... One day my very liberal... dare I say... Socialist professor stood in front of class and exclaimed, "Question Authority!!" He then went into a long diatribe as to why those folks (on the right) should be questioned... Well... this girl after a period of time thought to herself... "Why should only those on the right be questioned?"

Americans should do more of that...critical thinking... If you watch the network news... question what they are presenting...if you read something question it's accuracy. It is good and should be encouraged to read and gather information from several sources... Facts are facts...

When did they quit teaching critical thinking in schools... why are parents oblivious?

Global warming is real.
The recession is over.
Acorn only has a few bad seeds.
National healthcare is an awesome idea.
Republicans hate Olympic athletes and are relived Chicago will not be the sight of the 2016 games.
What the President and current Congress are pushing for is NOT Socialism.
Michael Moore tells the truth.
Letting Israel fend for themselves is OK.
Cutting the DOD budget makes sense.
We are safer today than we were prior to 9/11.
The recession is over.

Now get to work... check the facts... the facts never lie.

Have a great week everyone!

  1. The following seems pretty sensible to me. What do you disagree with? You must be a Rabbit Hash birhter.

    We need to accept our responsibilities -- as parents and community leaders. We need to be good role models and encourage excellence in all our children, every last one of them. We need to let them know there are no excuses for not doing your best, every day, all the time, in order to achieve your dreams.

    We've got to push our kids to aim higher. I don't want all our kids aspiring to be ballers and rappers. I want them aspiring to be teachers and doctors -- (applause) -- and scientists and engineers. (Applause.) I want them aspiring to be members of Congress and Supreme Court Justices. (Applause.) I want them aspiring to be the President of the United States of America. (Applause.) I want them to have their sights set high. (Applause.)

    No excuses for mediocrity. If they come home with a B, don't tell them "that's great." I know some of you all do that. (Laughter.) Tell them to work harder and get an A. Set their sights high. (Applause.)

    A world-class education. Affordable, quality health insurance. Jobs and opportunity. All of us accepting responsibility for ourselves, and our children, and our common future. That's how we'll make life better for the African American community, and thereby make life better for the larger American community. (Applause.) That is how we will build a new foundation for our economy that yields lasting, shared prosperity. That's how we'll take up the cause of freedom, and justice, and equality in our time, just as earlier generations of Americans took it up in theirs.
