    You must not have received the memo

    Spotted by reader Will in Denver, Colorado:

    The car owner obviously is operating under a false impression:

    That’s what the revenue debate is about.  It’s not because I want to raise revenues for the sake of raising revenues, or I’ve got some grand ambition to create a bigger government.

    Socialization and socialism are two different things.

    Hmmmm….. As a homeschool Mom, I read that differently.

    Whenever people (most noticeably the NEA teacher’s union, educators, and the MSM) criticize homeschooling and homeschooled kids, they always ask, “What about socialization?” Ad nauseam. You cannot homeschool without encountering that question from almost everyone – family, friends, teachers, university recruiters, etc.

    So I read that as: “To Socialize your Children”, not as “Socialism”.

    But, wait. Perhaps, when the NEA et. al. asks that question, they are really saying, “What about indoctrinating those children in Socialism?” That explains the practically militant resistance to homeschooling (and private schools, as well).

    Epiphany! Thanks for the enlightening bumper sticker. 😉

    Obama: “The problem is, is that if you don’t do the revenues, then to get the same amount of savings you’ve got to have more cuts, which means that it’s seniors, or it’s poor kids, or it’s medical researchers, or it’s our infrastructure that suffers.”

    Yep. I may disagree with Obama on almost everything else, but he’s right about this. Just the other day I saw a poor kid and his grandfather on their way to work at the medical research lab at UCLA, on their bicycles, their car having been destroyed by a particularly large pothole, the kind that now suddenly dot the city streets and freeways like so many ellipses … Gramps and Grandson’s tireless work on the cure for dozens of cancers now jeopardized by a shortfall of government revenue and sore thigh muscles.

    @DINORightMarie

    Would it make you feel better if they asked, “What about collectivism … er … we mean … what about ‘group work activities’?”

    LukeHandCool (who despises the group-work-facillitating tables that have replaced individual desks in our classrooms and doesn’t want his kids’ grades hinging in any way on the mediocrity of slacker kids in his childrens’ “groups” … and who woke up at 3:30 a.m. and will never get back to sleep now that he’s getting all worked up here on the still dark left coast).

    Re Obamanation: “Oba” means king in the yoruba and edo language (Lagos, Nigeria, Benin, Togo.)

    Me, I’d go for an equal opportunity “manation,” instead.
