John Stossel Moved to Fox? – Poser

What?  John Stossel Moved to Fox? 

I was delightfully surprised when I saw John Stossel on the Glen Beck TV show just last week.  Then I received an email from a friend and they told me that John Stossel had been asked to part company from ABC.  Primarily because a broadcast about the new proposed health care plan. 

I think I live such a sheltered life that I thought this might be a sham,  so I snooped around some of the WordPress Blogs and found these blogs with some information, http://onemansthoughts.wordpress.com   http://obambi.wordpress.com  their posts were written in September and October 2009.  Then I found a link to the New York Post http://www.nypost.com/.  Of course, now I know just how out of touch I am!   Geesh, where have I been?  Glen Beck even has John Stossel’s interview on his web site under “interviews” http://www.glenbeck.com/

 Then, I went to www.youtube.com and found this video!  Apparently, this is part of the show that didn’t sit to well with ABC.  So, just incase some of you folks out there are like me, out of the loop so to speak, you can see the clip here too.

 

Apparently,  This show was broadcast in July.  I missed it because I seldom watch ABC anymore.  Most of the programs are no longer interesting to me, being either to fluffy or a little too liberal for me.   I find CBS to be a little more entertaining and Fox is where I find most of my news.

Government Schools – An Education Poser

What in the heck is wrong with educators, teachers and the people in charge of planning, ie.  the School Boards around the country?

Our local School Board is trying to decide if it is benificial to give every failing child a grade of no lower than a 61.  They don’t want the children to feel discouraged!!! 

What is wrong with this concept?  Is this going on in the rest of our country or only in the Norfolk, Virgina school district?  Isn’t this “No Child Left Behind” a little extreme?

Protecting children is one thing but THIS doesn’t teach them a thing!!  Pityful is all I can muster to say.  Talk about dumbing down America, phew.  Truly, this is a bite in the butt for the so called government educational system.  Sad, sad, sad. 😦  

I’ll report back if I hear that this rule has passed.  It might be a little hard to find if they buried the ruling on the web site.

Tzars or Czars Income – Poser

Just how much does a Government appointed Tsar (Czar) earn as an income?

I don’t ever remember anyone, anywhere, mentioning how much their salaries are.   Is it public record?

Please, point me in the right direction.  Inquiring minds want to know!  Were their salaries, pension plans and perks part of the stimulus plan?

Congressional Pay Raise A Poser

Congressional Pay Raise? 

I wasn’t really sure if what a friend of mine told me was true, so I started surfing the internet and found several articles on the subject.  And, the pay raise is not a I know that the members of Congress have lost it, once again.  In these tough economic times, unemployment on the rise, loosing homes and bail out after bail out.  Why is our Congress continually trying to impoverish the citizens of this United States?

Yet, they seem to be able to stroke themselves a pay increase with our taxpayer dollars.  Very nice, huh? What a crock!

Here are two detailed articles I discovered on the web.

Just wait till I get to the polls for the next elections!  Grrrrr
