Dont forget Franken's Senate compatriot, the Muslim and friend of CAIR, Keith Ellison.
Here's the real world: My daughter, who recently lost her job, after "signing up" after weeks of fighting with the Obamacare website, was told that backlogs meant that they couldn't process her application for seven months. And this is before this November's sign-up flood hits.

I'll tell you one thing, this CC method eats up so much paper, you'd thinks the environs would be up in arms.

The point is that CC, in practice, is not teaching several ways, and the way it is teaching is one that is better taught later, if at all.

Uh, yes.
"Choosing Mumia as their commencement speaker, to me, shows how this newest group of Goddard graduates expresses their freedom to engage and think radically and critically in a world that often sets up barriers to do just that.” Thinking radically, yes. Critically, no. I'm not even sure this can be called thinking. "...our commencements are intimate affairs where each student serves as her or his own valedictorian..." So everyone is a self-declared genius? Again, this doesn't sound like critical thinking to me, and is a recipe for disaster in a healthy society.

No one should be surprised by this. After all, Obama has spent his entire life skipping anything having to do with intelligence.
"President Obama argued that the country is much better off economically, but people just don't realize it because wages "aren't going up"." Gee Barry, it's hard for wages to go up when you don't have a wage - because you have no job! "We've had the longest run of uninterrupted private sector job growth in our history." Well gee, Barry, mightn't that be due to the fact that spreading anemic growth over six years would yield such a worthless statistic?
"There Are Two Sides to Every Story" ... which in the Oklahoma beheading case boils down to the side wielding the knife and the side with the head being cut off.
Dude! Who needs a job when you're like high, man?
