Barack Obama, Education And Merit
Read Obama’s Super Tuesday Speech Here:
‘…What began as a whisper in Springfield was carried across the corn fields…’ and then it swelled into a river of BS that rolled across America.
‘…maybe (my italics) Washington doesn’t have to be run by lobbyists anymore…’
There’s a possible promise of change. Obama takes on Aipac. This ought to be rich. Go, Obama, go.
‘…people said that maybe (my italics again) we don’t have to be divided by race and region and gender; that crumbling schools are stealing the future of black children and white children; that we can come together and build an America that gives every child, everwhere the opportunity to live their dreams….’
Live their dreams. Now there’s a tall order. Here we come to a crux of the matter. Rhetoric is rhetoric but …crumbling schools are stealing the future of black children and white children…?
Surely the man exceeds himself. Where are these ‘crumbling’ schools? Why are these schools crumbling? Have ‘Americans of every race and culture’ deteriorated so far that we’ve sunk far below the Third World that we so pity that we send them tens of billions of dollars a year while our poor little black children and white children go uneducated?
Mr Obama is right. We do need change. Right after we drive the lobbyists out of Washington we’ll stop sending all those billions overseas and spend them on our ‘crumbling’ schools. Rah, rah, Obama. There’s a new chant for him to go along with Yes, we can.
Heck, all Gringo George Bush could come up with was spend money and no child will be left behind. Not enough money to spend on our ‘crumbling’ schools I guess. Eight years after and Mr. Obama is declaring the President Bush let our schools ‘crumble’. Rah, rah Obama, the man with a plan, or at least a slogan.
One had to laugh at Bush and one has to roar at Mr. Obama. Apparently neither Mr. Bush nor Mr. Obama have ever heard of differentials in intelligence. I’m no believe in IQ scores, nevertheless when one takes millions of scores that range from, say, 85 to 160 one soon learns that there is more achievement from the median upward than from the median downward.
I hope I won’t be accused of being cynical by believing it wiser to spend more time and effort on those above the median than those below it. It doesn’t matter how much money you spend on IQs of 85 when your money’s spent you’ve still got IQs of 85. Nevermind those waving fields of corn or ‘crumbling’ schools.
Now, Mr. Obama seems to propose that by rewarding ‘good’ teachers with excessive salaries we can ‘change’ reality. Yes, we can. Rah, rah Obama.
It is this rich fantasy life that make us wonder whether Mr. Obama is rooted in reality.
You will notice that Mr. Obama places black children before white children. In other words he’s for Affirmative Action, which is no change at all, or in other words, taking from the the more able to give to the less capable. This is what we have always suspected was what he meant by change.
These things are painful to discuss but necessary. What has always been suspected has been discovered to be fact and that is that Africans as the first evolved Homo Sapiens species have the least developed mental abilities. The eminent scientist, James Watson, who should know whereof he speaks, was recently dragged through the mud for giving the evidence of his scientific researches. This alone in our enlightened society was a criminal act. But was what he said true or was he just being malicious? I can’t believe he was being malicious.
The evidence is that this first develoment of the genus has on the average a lower IQ. As I said I don’t take IQ that seriously. Whatever IQ means, in the case of the First Born species it doesn’t necessarily mean they are stupid in the conventional sense but nevertheless at the end of the day you began with a lower IQ and you end up with a lower IQ at sundown. Yet Mr. Obama refers to the notion that he will put as much money and attention into those who are below the median, whether black or white, as those above the median, whether black or white.
Mr. Obama calls this change?
It is merely a new Spoils System that denies merit. The result is clear although Mr. Obama denies the reality. Of course we don’t have to worry about his educational program until after he expels the lobbyists from Washington. Rah, rah, Obama, go get ’em, boy. Let’s have some change.
