Obama loves / likes this country for what it can do for him. There are givers and takers in this world. Do the math.

BO spent a good portion of his childhood in Indonesia, a Muslim country. The Islam practiced there is not of the same variety as that of ISIS which is more reminiscent of the religion spread by the sword from its beginning. His experience is not of the bloody terror driven variety, but of a milder nature. Thus he is reluctant to blame the religion. That said. I think he is childish and narcissistic and not nearly so bright as Valerie Jarrett thinks. He is mendacious and really loves no one other than BO.
Walker did seven semesters. Perhaps he learned something after all. He just doesn't have a piece of paper to say he completed a particular course of study. A college professor once told his son and his friends that a perfectly good education could be earned at a public library. Bill Gates has done okay for himself despite not having completed his degree. What has Howard Dean accomplished by contrast. Your entire article is correct on today's college students being trained in an ideology rather than being taught to think. Is the question, "Does this make sense?" ever asked? Fifty plus years ago, we said of college degrees BS - the common term for male bovine excrement; MS - more of the same; PhD - piled higher and deeper. College degrees, good sense and intelligence are not synonymous.

Which is why I've seen one movie - Monuments Men - in the theater in the past five or six years. Not giving those greedy perverts my money. This is coming from someone who went to the movies at least once a week from the time I was a kid until the late sixties. Movies in the eighties were pretty good and generally clean. Now, there is little that is not rated R.

When academic accomplishment is replaced as the criterion for admission to anything else, someone loses. A Naval Academy alumnus told me that when he graduated about 1960, that all graduates were engineers. Not so anymore. What would it be like if major sports teams were forced to use other criteria than the ability to play the game?

Taft: have you ever spent any time teaching? Three chronic troublemakers in a classroom can literally steal the educational opportunity from all of the others. Why shouldn't charter schools receive public money? The parents of these students pay taxes.
The lack of journalistic integrity is criminal. It's one thing for politicians to lie. If there is an R behind their names, they will be investigated by the "impartial," mainstream media until the next century. However, make that a "D" and they not only get a pass, they are praised to the hilt.
You studied the Bible, Quran and Maharbarta for literary form and as literature rather than content and belief.
NEVER and you know it.
Once again, the tolerant LGBT advocate tolerance for any view that does not contradict their own. That a public school would allow such a takeover of an English class is reprehensible and irresponsible. Catholics learned long ago that if they wanted their children to be free of assaults on their beliefs, they had to have their own schools. Other Christian denominations have learned that too.
