OK! Oklahoma kicks Common Core out!

The bill passed with overwhelming bipartisan support in both chambers (71-18 House, 31-10 Senate).

2014_03 Kgarten Common Core math homework

Four and a half states never adopted the federal program.

Texas: In 2010, Gov. Rick Perry wrote the White House and U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan to say that Texas leads the way in education reform and would not waste tax dollars on “the adoption of unproven, cost-prohibitive national standards and tests.”

Alaska: In 2009, Governor Palin said, “The State of Alaska fully believes that schools must have high expectations of students. But high expectations are not always created by new, mandated federal standards written on paper. They are created in the home, the community and the classroom.”

Virginia: In 2010, the Virginia Board of Education said it was “committed to the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) program and opposed to adoption of the newly developed Common Core State Standard.”

Nebraska: Nebraska officials said their schools cover most of the same material as Common Core, just at different times, and questioned the wisdom of states adopting standards before they’d even been written.

Minnesota: In 2010, Minnesota agreed to the standards for English, but educators and politicians liked their own math standards better.

PETE’S PAGE; REDEFINING HUBRIS

Posted by Pistol Pete

I’m almost afraid every time I boot up that I’m going to read where Afghanistan has invaded the US and Obama has unilaterally surrendered. There’s so much stuff bubbling to the surface it’s a challenge to try to get to a portion of it.

As CtH posted yesterday,Bergdahl’s hometown of Hailey,Idaho has cancelled plans for a big Welcome Home celebration.
One reason is a row that erupted in Hailey between Mayor Fritz Haemmerle and US Army Platoon Commander Jonathan Kennedy, who lives in Hailey. Commander Kennedy called the celebration for a deserter a “monstrous profanity.”
Carole King was scheduled to entertain the folks. Pity.
The mayor must have realized that this small town would have been overrun with huge news trucks,snotty reporters and protesters and anti-protesters.
For those not familiar,Hailey is in the posh ski resort area of Sun Valley,Idaho. It is the only county in the state that voted for Obama in both 2008 and 2012.
I have a theory that Hailey was founded in the late ’60s when a couple vanloads of maggot-infested dope-smoking draft dodgers fled San Francisco to hide out in Canada. After the entire group got completely stoned,they wrecked in a snowbank. When they came off their high,they thought they’d made it to Canada and started a little commune. Voila. Up popped the town of Hailey,population 8000.

There is a vile little barfbag named Brandon Friedman in the Obama regime. He is deputy assistant secretary for public affairs at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. This is what this festering pile of cowflop tweeted:

Long on psychopaths and short on leadership? WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE,PUNK????
This remind me of the “nuts and sluts” campaign the Klintoons employed against any of Bent Penis’ sexual assault victims who tried to point out what a shitheel this bastard really is.
Apparently,I’m not the only one wiping spit off my monitor:

Wanna get even more steamed?
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl May Be Getting A Huge Amount Of Money After His Release
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl could be entitled to about $300,000 in back pay and special compensation following his release as a Taliban prisoner, experts say.

Think Obama has sunk as low as he can go? Not even close.
REPORT: White House canceled a RANSOM deal for Bergdahl in order to do a PRISONER SWAP
According to Catherine Herridge, there was a team working with Pakistani leadership who was putting pressure on the Taliban to accept a ransom deal for Bergdahl. That is until the White House decided they wanted to do a prisoner swap and put the ransom deal on hold.

FOX News is reporting that the Obama administration may have given the Taliban and Haqqani terrorists money as well as the five top Taliban prisoners.

An odd coincidence in the Bergdahl release?
The Truth Revolt material shows that negotiations for Bergdahl’s release have been underway for years. We also know that on Sunday, May 25 Obama visited Afghanistan’s Bagram Airfield for a secretive military consultation.

It was during this secretive visit, which occurred around a week before Bergdahl’s release, that the Kabul CIA station chief was outed.

Of course, Obama’s people say the outing was accidental.

Maybe it was, just like Bergdahl might be just as honorable as the always very honest Susan Rice says he is.

Could the outing of the CIA chief have been part of the Taliban’s demand to trade the deserter?

Friends,I apologize to put most of the bergdahl stuff here,but there’s so much I could do two posts and I appreciate you only have so much time.

I’m doing two posts tomorrow. One is the usual Fun Post,the other a special one to honor the 70th anniversary of D-Day. It is heartbreaking that there are just a very small handful of these very special men left. I’m not a particularly eloquent man but no one has any more love and respect to for these all-but-forgotten heroes. I will honor them as best as I possibly can.
