I disagree. Obama is not a narcissist. He is a sociopath.
Workers without risk do not get bonuses. Bonuses go to workers who are on commission, or are paid against a set of objectives which need to be met or, have done something above and beyond the job requirements. The very fact there are these scandals is cause for no bonus, not a cause for a bonus. This kind of thinking is what you get when you have people with no experience running any real business running government.
Nice strawman. Do you work at creating them or do you just stumble on your misinterpretation?
"Dumb as a box of hammers" comes to mind, too. Likewise, that is not a compliment to the former professor.
Gee, I was unaware that FSU and the Washington Redskins were "ill treating" the Navajos. When, exactly, did that happen? Can we also say that UFl is "ill treating" alligators?

Just in case that is a serious question, meta data is data about the data. In the case of email, it would be things like sender, receiver, date, time, size of message, number of attachments, etc. It turns out meta data is quite revealing. If I know you called an oncologist, had a meeting with him, and maybe had a cat scan, I can infer you are likely to have cancer.

There has to be a severe penalty to both the judge who signed the warrant and every one on the SWAT team when these things happen. If there are no penalties, then there will be no change to the strategy.

Revolt Against the Testing Tyrants

I had this same conversation yesterday. The schools have done it to themselves. Once they started graduating functional illiterates, they created a demand for testing. Then, like any bureaucracy, the amount of testing followed a kind of Parkinson's law and expanded to fill the amount of time deemed available for testing. If the school districts manage to opt out of the testing, they will need to make sure they graduate literate students and end social promotions. They will also need to stop mixing the low performing students and the gifted in the same classes. The end result of thmixing is no one learns anything
Obama seems to forget that his Executive Orders, particularly the ones that ignore black letter law, are only binding on his administration. I wonder what would happen if he casually mentioned that this "exemption" would only hold for the next three years.
"Dream" meet "Reality".
