“Snookered”, “30K Bday”, “Unintended Consequences”, “Worst” and more quips

Full Sherrod Tape Is Worse! > racist AND leftist! How did the NAACP get "snookered" by their own tape AND Sherrod? Bozell: “I’ve watched the full tape. It gets worse; it doesn’t get better! It’s not that Andrew Breitbart took out something that what was going to somehow get her off the hook. She hangs herself later on with footage that Andrew Breitbart I believe did not have on his.” [ Sherrod has snookered this country, the NAACP, the entire Obama administration and made a weak Obama kow-tow to her. Now watch for her second law suit after a successful one years ago. You can bet that Obama is desperately trying to make this one go away! – Here’s another good take on this. - JS ]

“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” Thomas Jefferson > How do you keep the public from correctly identifying REDISTRIBUTION as stealing? You call it CHARITY!

MIND BOGGLE! Edifice Complex - LA complex cost a mere $137,619.00 per student!  Common sense asks: What were the per/foot costs of Washington's, Lincoln's, or Reagan's classrooms? And, did their Union teachers complain about the teaching environment? [ Great article – Read it all... – JS ]
