From Alan Korwin's "The Uninvited Ombudsman"


Educator's Minute: "Control the kids and you'll control the country," is a plan our government schools and the teachers' unions have pushed way ahead. As a friend and non-leftist educator writes: "Having observed 2,000 students in my online university economics classes, I can tell you virtually all arrive believing:

--It's the government's job to make the economy work
--Business is your enemy
--Government should set prices
--Labor rates should be set high to "raise the standard of living"
--Labor-saving devices are bad
--Wealthy people are greedy and should be taxed to benefit the community
--Keynesian economics is the only proper course and the Austrian school (Hayek, von Mises, even Friedman, etc.) are unfeeling market-driven cretins
--And they have no concept of entrepreneurial risk and reward.
The saddest part is that the "educators" who promote this drivel and anti-American socialist claptrap propaganda believe it's accurate, instead of the antithesis of what makes America great -- Adam Smith-style capitalism and free markets.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Let me just say this....

1500-1600 calories a day and no mojitos is Hell on Earth.

No sourdough.

No Burgers.

No Pasta.

No Sammiches.

Having to eat salads and all sorts of other greens.

I have a thumb dammit - I am supposed to eat meat and sourdough...

LightLife :: Our Products
Try these & see if you like them. They are like hotdogs but no meat & low fat, low cal; the sodium is a bit high though. If you slap some kraut on there, you won't know the difference.

I ate them for a long time as a hot dog substitute, and then read the fat & calories info.

Cane, there are a number of frontline teachers who don't like the new status quo, but the administrators making the policy do usually seem to line up as your post indicated. I taught night classes at a community college for about ten years and worked with an interesting mix of people, part-timers who taught at high schools full-time, full-time community college instructors, and a few professionals with advanced degrees teaching on the side. Many of those people exhibited a good deal of "common sense", but most also complained about the direction that their administrators were taking education in their school system.

Dillinger. If you so much as look at one of the vegan approved tofu dogs I am going to kick you in the junk so hard there will be no chance for minidillingers ever.

Cane,That was funny!!!!

I had a blast last nite and went to the 1st annual Johnson County Friends of the NRA Banquet. I go to the TSRA Banquet almost every year and it's fun,but there are too many that go to it with DEEP POCKETS so the live auction is a joke.
The NRA Banquet was a great one,even though I didn't win squat! There were around 150 people there and I knew quite a few,so we all set together and joked around all nite.
If any of you,has a chance to attend one of these-GO. You will have fun,and just maybe win a nice gun or something else in the raffles or auctions.

Holy Crap!! 500-800 calories a day is WAY below what a man is supposed to be intaking to lose weight brother.

We went to see an actual nutritionist - because everyone knows "something" about weight loss, but the problem for me, is that I have a bit of OCD and I want to know "A lot" about how to make myself lose weight.

For a male, 1500-1600 calories a day with MINIMAL exercise is the intake to keep you moving, motivated and losing weight at the same time.

Going below that number, unless you are a bed ridden Sloth, will actually force your system to shut down on calorie burning and try to preserve as much as possible for self sustaining systems.

I would recommend you add a few more calories before you crash out completely from lack of blood sugar.

And yes, I agree - DIEting sucks.

Damn Mojitos and their sugary, boozy goodness....

Getting old sucks....
