1912 test for 8th graders: Can you pass it?

August 18, 2013

FYI some more:

Can you pass this 101-year old test for 8th graders in Kentucky?

The Lead Vaccine Developer Comes Clean So She Can “Sleep At Night” – (44 girls are officially known to have died from these vaccines):

….Me, I always wonder how many older folks are dying from the flu vaccine, vs. how many are dying from the flu….

The IRS Can’t Plead Incompetence –

If it’s incompetence, says Peggy Noonan, then why did they do it so well and so thoroughly?

And if it was to make it more efficient, like one of the more stupid excuses they used at first, then why did they drag their feet so much?

And if it was to treat them just like anybody else, then why did they have just conservative keywords for search?

If there was no politically motivated targeting for mistreatment, then why has NOT ONE “progressive” group complained, despite Republicans in Congress begging for EVEN ONE to come forth?

And if the IRS is concerned about political activity, then why is Media Matters a 501(c)3? A quick check of their web sites finds ONLY Republican candidates smeared, and no other subject matter.

Noonan also gives us a good explanation about why the Surveillance State should be stopped:

What we lose if we give up privacy:

Reagan is too much venerated by conservatives today, in my opinion, but if you are on the side of truth you don’t need lies to prop you up. I don’t need to lie about Obama to tell the truth, I don’t need to make up stuff about Nixon to tell the truth about him, but it seems like a great number of Ronald Reagan’s biographers are saying that this new film “The Butler” tells some lies by implication about his character.

Sounds like what they did with the Margaret Thatcher story.

You can’t trust Hollywood anymore.. It’s doing its own “McCarthy-like” witch hunts. Their statist ideas about taxation and regulation don’t have facts or logic to support it, so they can’t argue based on them. What they do lots of, though, is ad hominem arguments that don’t need facts or logic, plus throw in some lies here and there. Wrap the word “fiction” around them to avoid libel lawsuits and CYA.


Boy do we ever need Ron Paul’s homeschooling curriculum more than ever. It will even benefit government school students…

Gay activist control freaks for anti-Christian censorship: Free speech for me, but not for thee

“T-shirt company in crosshairs for saying no to homofest”:

A human rights official in Kentucky says it might be perfectly fine for a printing company run by “gays” to refuse to print anti-”gay” literature, but a Christian company refusing to print T-shirts for a “gay” event would not have that same right.

This is the trouble with government thought police inventing “group” rights, totally tramping all over the natural human rights of individuals. Groups do not have natural rights, and using the US Constitution to do it is an exercise of Orwellian Doublethink, because the only rights recognized by, but of course not “given” by, the US Constitution, are individual rights.

One of those is the right to associate with whomever you choose, the “right of assembly“.

The Fourth Amendment does not “grant”, but recognizes, the right to be secure in your property, papers, effects, and your life. Government censorship is a violation of the natural rights of both the First and the Fourth, superior to our Constitution and recognized as such in both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution itself.

That’s the beauty of the US Constitution: it’s written in the common man’s English, and we can point to where “even the Supreme Court” obviously messes it up.

Like seizing private property from a number of individuals to give it to developers.

Hayek, Rand Paul: Interference in Bankruptcy Court Disrupts The Rule of Law and Investment

Rand Paul on The Road to SerfdomYouTube:

Without the constant of a stable rule of law, such as bankruptcy court provides for the appropriate situations, investors have no way to measure risk, so of course they are leery of investing.
