The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld Michigan's ban on affirmative action in college admissions.
Kent Frederick April 23, 2014 at 10:59 am
Observor, It may have been Walt Williams who said that the problem with affirmative action is thatRead More it can set up a kid to fail. Schools that serve large groups of minorities often do not prepare a kid for an elite school, whehter it's a private school like Harvard or Duke, or an elite public school like Michigan or Cal-Berkeley. He suggested that a student, regardless of race or color, should always select a school that is suited to his qualifications. Someone from an inner-city school in California would be better off going to a university in the California State University system, rather than a school in the University of California system. The idea is that he can succeed in college and move on to a successful career. If a person ill-prepared for Berkeley or UCLA attends either of those schools, he has a greater likelihood of flunking out and giving up on higher education. My father attended a 1-room school house until the 6th grade. He then attended a rural junior high and high school. He wound up going to a land-grant university 11 years after graduating from high school, courtesy of the GI Bill. Because of his going to a school that, while good in the field of agriculture, was an average university overall, he was able to move into management eventually transferred to Chicago. So, I attended a very good suburban high school that prepared me for the University of Michigan. If he had gone to a school for which he wasn't prepared, he could very well have dropped out, which would have meant no management opportunity or transfer to Chicago. I know a lot of very successful people who went to small, liberal arts colleges or public universities that aren't of the same caliber as Michigan, UCLA, or the University of Illinois. Yes, going to a school like Michigan, Harvard, Duke, Northwestern, or Stanford can lead to great opportunities. But, going to a non-elite college or university doesn't close the doors on those opportunities.
Kim McCoy April 23, 2014 at 12:53 pm
Maria Young, I think you're on to something there. Since the activist judges are forcing one statesRead More marriage laws onto other states, I think it only fitting that the judgement of the Supreme Court should apply to every state. No state should be allowed to practice affirmative action now...NONE.
"The Black Panther of Poetry" April 23, 2014 at 12:58 pm
Fair is Fair!!! Now if we can only get Affirmative Action totally out of such sports as BasketballRead More and Football and the Music industry, to name a few, which African-Americans are by far the most innovative and talented and who very essence has kept it alive so that others could thrive and benefit from. The minorities in these financially lucrative areas of our society is truly and obviously inferior but yet is given a shoe in because there race promotes, finance and overly spectates in these Professions by default in a sense because they have the "wherewithall" to do so because of centuries of discrimination and also present discrimination and Social Stratification.
Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.
Jennifer April 23, 2014 at 12:57 pm
Fred Austin, all you did was cut and paste from the Common Core website. It claims that teachers ,Read More parents, administrators..."provided input", but it does NOT say Who. At what point. Who paid them to give their opinion? What were their qualifications? At least I provided two names, Jim Milgrim and Sandra Slotsky, their function (the ONLY content specialists on the validation committee) , and the fact that they refused to sign off on the standards. I also provided a link to a documentary that IS anti- common core, but if you refuse to watch it at all for that reason, then you arent really open to hearing anything you dont want to hear. I linked it BECASUE Sandra Slotsky and Jim Milgrim are interviewed in it about exactly what they found objectionable. You won't find that out by reading the CC website.
CowDung April 23, 2014 at 12:59 pm
Jennifer: I provided a list the 'who's' from Wisconsin that participated. They aren't on theRead More national CC website because each state selected their own teams to provide input toward the development of the Common Core standards.
Jennifer April 23, 2014 at 01:04 pm
It also says "State education chiefs and Governors came together to develop the Common core. NoRead More governor actually sat down and wrote anything. What it should say is that "Two organizations, state education chiefs, plus the National Governors Association,, agreed to allow consultants paid for by Bill Gates and Achieve, among other corporate interests, to write standards for all American Children without input from child development experts or content specialists> They then agreed to allow this group of corporate interests to pay for experts to validate the standards they had created. Some prominent educators refused to do so, so they were expunged from the record. " That would be more accurate than the PR you cut and pasted from the CC website.

I agree with B. Dub 100%! How was this kid able to scale a fence and just walk right over to theRead More plane? TSA: for all the harassing you do in the terminal...you ain't all that!! As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this. Thank you lucky stars kid!

Agranon - I'm a moron because I am tired of everybody and his mother trying to put themselves inRead More every story? Then so be it - I'm a moron. To be honest, I am also really tired of all the people that were compelled to run the Boston Marathon because "I had to finish for all those who couldn't." Get over yourself. It was a tragedy. Those responsible should be ripped apart by dogs. I sincerely hope the families of those affected can move on somehow. But how does Mary Jane Smith running the marathon help ANYBODY but herself? She's not doing it for "those who can't". She's doing it to maybe get on TV and she's probably feeling a little sanctimonious because she ran 26.2 miles and you didn't. It's like, "what did YOU do to help these people?" Same as you - nothing.

It probably took 3 judges to get them to grant the warrants they were looking for. And the AttorneyRead More Registration and Disciplinary Commission (ARDC) is the "bar" you are looking for. You will find specific rules there and though anyone can lodge complaints, and all complaints are heard, the accused members of the bar have a right to defend themselves and their actions. The attorney for the arrested kid can file for sanctions, too, and move to suppress the information obtained by the warrant if it is judged to have been granted erroneously.

On March 29, two days after Twitter gave police the information they requested, Judge Lisa Wilson approved a warrant for Comcast to find out where the person who used the Internet to access Twitter lived. On April 1, Elliott was identified as the Comcast subscriber for 1220 N. University St., the affidavit said. Two weeks later, Judge Kim Kelley approved the warrant to search the house. Police seized several iPhones, two Xbox video game consoles, computers, pieces of mail, drug paraphernalia, alleged marijuana and digital memory cards.

For those of you observantly too clueless, Citrus County is 95.05% white, votes Republican in local,Read More state and national elections. Presently, Republicans hold all seats on the Citrus County Commission. In addition, the per capita income for the county is listed at $18,585. Nearly 12 percent of the population lives below the poverty level and close to 9 percent of families below the poverty line. So, instead of trying to bash the president and what he stands for, how about taking the time to realize the error of your ways and correcting the lies you continue to spew and believe on a daily basis. You just might find out that you've been voting against your interest for all of the wrong reasons; bigotry being one of them.
TT April 23, 2014 at 08:42 am
BassGreat is what I call an O'bot, just like this child killer. Because an area has a lot ofRead More Republicans in it (not saying that what you said is true, I'm just throwing out a hypothetical), doesn't mean that it is completely void of murderous Liberal parasites. Since you're throwing out percentages, how about telling us what percentage of drive by shooters, car jackers, gang members, and mass shooters are Obama voters. Go ahead and say bashing the Left doesn't matter or pertain to this story. But because the overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats, it becomes VERY significant. You devils are dangerous, and it's time to admit it.
BassGreat April 23, 2014 at 11:14 am
TT, you apparently like looking foolish (pretty typical?). And for someone who wants to come acrossRead More as knowledgeable, you fail miserably. Oh, and by the way, felons can't vote. But I will allow you to present evidence that the majority of violent criminals are Democrats. Your source? Heck, the very definition of a Democrat is an advocate or supporter of democracy. But alas, we're all Americans. Perhaps you should worry less about bashing one's political affiliation in an attempt to elevate yourself. You missed something pretty important here. "Those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted." Now, it should be a bit easier for you to understand why President Obama won a second term. A fete none thought possible. And remember, never spew from your mouth that which you can't back up. makes you look rather small.
