Biden The Gaffe Factory And Other Interesting Things

Joe Biden has been a walking gaffe machine for the past few weeks. I imagine that Ole Joe has allowed Jack Daniels do the talking and it has gotten him in trouble (though Biden can make great gaffes when he is completely sober). Yesterday, here is what the man who has a higher IQ than you said:

“When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.” Yahoo

The only problem is that Herbert Hoover was the president when the market crashed in 1929. FDR took office in 1933. The television was not commercially available until the mid 1930s. FDR was the first president on TV though. He appeared in 1939 at the NY World’s Fair.

A University of Massachusetts chaplain offered college credits to students who campaigned for Barack Obama. The school has disavowed itself but there is no indication if the plan will still go forward. Perhaps the school could step in and stop this activity that might run afoul of state ethics laws. [Boston Herald]

A fifth grader in Colorado was suspended for wearing an anti Obama T Shirt. The shirt read “Obama is a terrorist’s best friend.” A student at another school was forced to remove a shirt depicting an American Flag. He had to wear a bright yellow shirt that read; “DCV: Dress Code Violator.” If he had burned the flag they would have given him 2 extra college credits…. There might be some hope, students are planning to carry flags and wear red, white, and blue to school. Next thing you know they will be bitterly clinging to guns and religion.

The FBI is investigating Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, AIG, and Lehman Brothers to see if any illegal activities, like fraud, took place. The feds will be looking at the companies and the Senior Management. Good, it is about time. If they go deep enough they can hang quite a few Democrats and former Clinton people. [My Way News]

Iran’s baboon president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, declared that the US was on the verge of collapse and should end its military involvement in other countries. I wonder if anyone made a speech saying that Iran should stop its involvement in other countries. Did anyone remind him that Iran is a top sponsor of terror and that it should stop arming Hamas and Hezbolla? This sawed off ape should be dragged around Ground Zero in New York by a New York City firetruck. [My Way News]

    It was the opposite where I went to school.  Any shirt having to do with “Satan” was taken away.  This included Star Wars t-shirts because Darth Maul looked like the Devil.  We had several whack job fundamentalist teachers who spoke in tongues on the weekend and spent all week reminding you that if you thought you were a Democrat you were a “baby killer.”  This is the same school that had a teacher physically assault my 12 year old brother and then get a pass for it, but that’s a story for another day…

  2. Big Dog says:

    Well, it is true that the Democrats are the party of baby killers though it is not up to the school to discuss it (unless you went to a private religion affiliated school).  If a kid goes to Catholic school (or any religious based) then the school has the right to take away things that they deem improper and to discuss moral views like abortion etc.  If it is a public school, that should not be the case (dress codes are appropriate though).  I think it is proper to discuss Creationism as a theory on how we got here and it has more evidence to support it than the unproven and discredited THEORY of evolution.

    Should a kid in public school be allowed to wear a shirt with Jesus loves you or Mohammad rules?  Can a kid read the Bible for his open reading period?  Is it OK to discuss the death penalty, adultery, stealing, murder and rape as moral issues but not abortion?  If taxpayer money is used to teach about abortion should it not be used to teach the views of those against it?

    Just asking, it seems that life was much better when we actually had morals and a value system that did not include “if it feels good, do it” as the major theme.

    If the shirt actually had Satan on it, but Star Wars?

    When I went to school they beat your rear end if you were bad.  It was not called assault and most kids were well behaved for fear of it.

    Liberal whackadoo’s or religious whackadoo’s both are equally bad. I too went to a school where “students will not hold hands to avoid the appearance of evil” (straight from their rule book) and the possession of rock music tapes/paraphnalia (even Christian rock) was a punshiable offense. Thank God my parents wised up and took me out of the school and stopped paying tuition to the hypocritical nutjobs.

    As a conservative (no not all conservatives belong to the “religious right”) I wouldn’t tell a kid what they could and couldn’t wear to school unless it was extremely offensive (profanity, nudity, racist) or inappropriate (very revealing) and thus disruptive to other students.  When I was younger I hated the idea of uniforms as I had to wear one at the aforementioned Baptist school, however I’m a proponent of school uniforms. As an adult I see how much clothes cost and I now know what it takes to keep a roof over one’s head, keep the utilities on, and cars on the road & in the driveway. I see the extra burden paying for name brand clothing for kids creates and its not fair to the less affluent kids and parents to put them through that financially and psychologically. Kids are at school to learn, not to be at a fashion show, they can “express themselves” outside of school.

  4. Reason says:

    A quick clarification, my statement about not telling kids what they can or cannot wear applies to schools (most public schools) without a uniform or other strict dress code.

    However I DO think uniforms should be implemented in public schools for the reasons I stated. It also eliminates issues with students & parents over what is or is not inappropriate school attire, which saves school districts headaches and money lost to litigation.

  5. Adam says:

    My school was just the typical poorly (though better than some) funded, poorly staffed, Arkansas high school where a lot of teachers worked really hard and did what they could with limited resources.  Classrooms were very small, most people have more people in their graduating class than I had in my whole school.   This let the school get away with more things than usual.  People were paddled and continue to be paddled there.  You could wear any clothes that didn’t offend your teacher which usually meant anything pro Jesus was in and anything that might be considered Satanic was out.   There was a good mix of Democrats and Republicans in the teacher pool, probably more Dems because it’s AR, but there was a high influence of Fundamentalist Christianity in the administration of the school but not the  education really.  There were bible studies and church run by students of course which some teachers oversaw but didn’t interfere with.  Typical stuff really.  Nobody discussed the big issues, nobody debated abortion or the death penalty, but several teachers did make it known that you were a baby killer if you were planning on voting for Al Gore…

    The maintream media have spent an inordinate amount of time doing everything in their considerable power to show Gov. Sarah Palin in a bad light.  Yet, Sen. Joe Biden is tripping and falling all over the place, apparently three sheets to the wind on occasion, and nothing is reported by them.  I have such disdain for the media, they are despicable liars.
    The Univ. of Mass. should be investigated by the feds.  Offering credit for campaigning for any candidate has to be against our laws.  The professor should be fired and prosecuted and if the university allowed it to go on, charges should be filed against those responsible for that decision.
     When 5th graders are punished for wearing the American flag to school, something is terribly wrong.  Hell, many Americans have been forced to stop wearing American flag lapel pins to their places of employment or schools.  What goes on here that we tolerate this bullying from radical leftists?  Ladies and gentlemen, let’s take back our schools:  Run for a seat on your local school boards and let’s stop this crap!
    It way past time that the FBI should have been investigating Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac.  It’s common knowledge that former Clintonista, Franklin Raines, was fired for accounting irregularities 4 years ago, after he pocketed $100 MILLION dollars during his 6 years at Fannie Mae’s helm, and running it into the ground.  I wonder what his compensation might have been had he run the institution profitably.  Other former, infamous Clintonistas, Jim Johnson and Jamie Gorelick, are also guilty of pocketing millions in cash at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.  Let’s call this what it is: EMBEZZLEMENT, THEFT, UNBELIEVABLE GREED.  SEND THESE THIEVES TO PRISON!!!!!
    Why didn’t our government arrest Iran’s little man on kidnapping & murder charges stemming from the Iranian Hostage Crisis?  I don’t believe diplomatic immunity applies to hostage takers and terrorists.  At the very least, Iran, its President, as well as all Iranian officials should be DENIED Visas to enter this country.  And while we’re at it, the same should go for all nations that sponsor and support terrorism.

    Obama said today that he is pleased with Biden.  That was the kiss of death, just ask any baseball manager.

    I think all the stars are lining up for Hillary.
