Our View: The land of opportunity is not about the money

I got a chuckle out of the Daily News’ Editorial Board thoughts on the college scandal. They wrote: 

It’s unfortunate, but the fact they [the students] were admitted to a school they weren’t qualified for will likely take a toll on the students.

Prophetic words, since the liberal editorial board supports affirmative action, which is another way of admitting under-qualified students into college. And always leaves the question in the back of people’s minds: did this person get their medical degree because they are skilled and proficient? Or because they met a quota? 

Which doctor would you go to? 

Nothing says “man of the common people” like elevating himself to address them by standing on the surface from which they eat.

Logos High School mock trial team retakes state title

LOGOS

The two Classical Christian Schools in Idaho always battle it out between themselves for the title. This year, it goes back to Logos. 

The Logos High School mock trial team has retaken the Idaho state championship.  The team from Moscow won the Idaho High School Mock Trial Championship over the weekend in Boise.  For the 9th straight year Logos and Ambrose Academy met in the finals.  The win is the 18th state title for Logos in the championship’s 25-year history.  The Knights lost to Ambrose last year.  Logos now advances to the National High School Mock Trial Championships which will be held in Georgia in May.

“I’m told I get criticised by the new left,” he said, referring to a group of popular new left-wing Democrats that includes congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “I have the most progressive record of anybody running for the United- “

He then corrected himself, saying: “Anybody who would run.”

As the diners rose to their feet and chanted “run Joe run”, he laughed and insisted, “I didn’t mean it!”

Uh-huh.

Ocasio-Cortez joins McMorris Rodgers in backing bill requiring minimum wage for workers with disabilities. But it’s complicated.

This is bad for workers with disabilities. 

Now state and federal lawmakers are considering bills that would eliminate subminimum wage certificates. The first co-sponsor of the federal bill, authored by Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Va., was Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Spokane. Two other Republicans have joined her in sponsoring the bill along with 10 Democrats, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

“As you see more employers giving someone with disabilities a chance, what they’re finding is that they’re really good employees,” McMorris Rodgers said. “They are loyal, they’re hardworking, they show up every day excited to be there, ready to work hard, and they have a very positive impact on the culture, so I just think that this is an idea whose time has come.”

McMorris Rodgers said the timing is ideal because of record low unemployment – especially among minorities and the disabled. The federal bill has a six-year transition period that would provide support to individuals and employers in the form of grants, accommodation funds, job coaches and apprenticeship programs.

“There’s a growing number of organizations that are focused on helping employers make a transition and make this a positive, so I would encourage these employers to talk with some of these organizations, and I would be happy to connect them,” she said.

Pelosi: ‘Any Child Who Somehow Escaped Both Abortion And Infanticide Has Earned The Right To Vote’

WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a speech advocating for lowering the voting age, Nancy Pelosi passionately argued that any child who avoids being aborted or killed just after birth under Democrats’ new push to expand abortion and infanticide rights “has earned the right to vote.”

Downtown parking woes in Moscow?

Parking SignGreat article in the Daily News. Takeaway: 

  • What parking problem? “People perceive there to be an issue because sometimes they cannot find a space directly in front of the downtown business they want to explore.”
  • “Moscow’s downtown has become more vibrant the past 10 years and many would say occupied parking spaces is a sign of a healthy downtown.”
  • “A survey question asked what residents feel will be the most important issue facing the city in the next several years —four said parking.” The “need for business growth” drew the most answers with 37.

You can tell that Nancy Cheney’s reign of terror is over! 

If they really want to fix things, change parking on Main Street to 60-90 minutes only, and side streets to 3 hours.

Nation Celebrates Devout Christian Missionary By Getting Totally Hammered

Truth!

U.S.—Reports from around the country Saturday indicated that celebrations in honor of Christian missionary Saint Patrick consisted primarily of consuming large amounts of alcohol in order to get “totally plastered.”

 
Partygoers around the nation and world declared their deep level of respect and admiration for the missionary by pounding all sorts of green beer, hard liquor, wine, and mixed drinks throughout the day and into the night, sources confirmed.

“I’d like to dedicate this to the great ambassador of the one glorious gospel to the lost souls of Ireland,” one man in Boston declared just before some friends hoisted him up to perform his third keg stand of the morning.

“Saint Paaatrrrriiiiiiick!” a woman from Los Angeles cried out, overcome with emotion at the thought of the devout evangelist. “Brrrrfffrrrrrraaagggdddlllellll hahaha!” she added.

A Denver man paying his respects to the missionary echoed the celebratory yet reverential mood sweeping the nation. “To the man who was taken captive into slavery at the young age of 16, escaped, and then returned to the land of his enslavement to share the soul-saving gospel of Jesus Christ among the pagan Druids who wanted him dead!” he said between shots of Jack Daniel’s at a local Applebee’s. “This one’s for you, Patrick!”

“More shots! It’s what ol’ Paddy would have wanted!” he added.

The Use of Climate Models to Hype Threat

”The models are convenient fictions that provide something very useful.” 
– Dr David Frame, climate modeler, Oxford University

 

“I believe it is appropriate to have an ‘over-representation’ of the facts on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience.” 
– Al Gore, Climate Change activist

 

“It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.” 
– Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace

 

“The only way to get our society to truly change is to frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe.”

– David Brower, founder of Friends of the Earth

 

“If we don’t overthrow capitalism, we don’t have a chance of saving the world ecologically. I think it is possible to have an ecologically sound society under socialism.  I don’t think it is possible under capitalism” 
– Judi Bari, Principal organizer of Earth First!

 

“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” 
– Maurice Strong, Founder of the UN Environment Programme

 

“A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.” 
– Paul Ehrlich, Professor of Population Studies

 

“The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are.” 
– Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund, Princeton Professor

 

“Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.” 
– Professor Maurice King

 

“We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of presently settled land.” 
– David Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!

 

“Complex technology of any sort is an assault on human dignity. It would be little short of disastrous for us to discover a source of clean, cheap, abundant energy, because of what we might do with it.” 
– Amory Lovins, Rocky Mountain Institute

 

“Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.” 
– Prof Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University

 

”The future is to be [One] World Government with central planning by the United Nations. Fear of environmental crises – whether real or not – is expected to lead to compliance.” 
– Former Washington State Democratic governor Dixy Lee Ray

 

“Urgent and unprecedented environmental and social changes challenge scientists to define a new social contract…a commitment on the part of all scientists to devote their energies and talents to the most pressing problems of the day, in proportion to their importance, in exchange for public funding.” 
NOAA’s Administrator Jane Lubchenko, when she was president of AAAS in 1999

 

“Our aim is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to change the global economic system… This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history.” In simpler terms, replace free enterprise, entrepreneurial capitalism with UN-controlled centralized, One World government and economic control. 
– UN Climate Chief Christiana Figueres

 

“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. “It is not. It is actually about how “we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth.” 
– IPCC official Ottmar Edenhofer
