They created the Comics Code Authority of America where member publishers would submit their comic books for a nice voluntary censorship. This is the reason why Mad Magazine is called a magazine and not a comic book because they refused to play ball with the Comics Code Authority of America.
I sometimes wonder if evil space mutants haven't taken over the White House. I mean Obama was such a good candidate and then as soon as he moves into the White House the space mutants hit him square between the eyes with their Reagan ray gun, Suddenly he's loonier than Reagan, crueler than Nixon and goofier than Bush.
Candidate Obama was going to take a good hard look at the Patriot act. President Obama came and saw and signed. Candidate Obama was going to talk with our adversaries instead they walk out when they speak at the UN. Boy howdy that's showing em a thing or two. Too bad we didn't hang around long enough to stick out our tongue at them or give em the finger while we're being more rational than the previous administration about these things.
Nixon kept his enemy's list of anti-war activists and snickered while he pleasured himself under the desk in the oval office. "Just wait until they try and get hired at the post office" and then he would explode with a release of psychopathic fury and sexual tension shouting, "and your wives too! Wait until they try and get a small business loan or a crop subsidy!"
This administration sicks the FBI on anti-war activists raiding six locations in the Midwest under the guise of combating terrorism. The FBI later announced that there was "no imminent threat to the community" except from the FBI of course. When Federal agents raid your home and find only your ideas it's clear that their goal is intimidation. The FBI Special Agent explained that the FBI was "seeking evidence related to an ongoing Joint Terrorism Task Force investigation into activities concerning the material support of terrorism.
Why that's as clear as the NKVD handbook can make it because the terrorists are anyone the government says are terrorists and material support is whatever the government says it is. Mind your lip if someone asks you in the Men's warehouse, which suit looks better, the blue suit or gray?
While Nixon was happy to indiscriminately kill civilians in illegal bombings of neutral countries and Reagan was content to start murderous brush wars in Central American countries that he couldn't locate on a map. Mr. Obama ups the number and ferocity of predator drone attacks in Pakistan and claims for himself the privilege of extrajudicial killing of American citizens. Even the maniac Bush never thought of that one. The Bushniks thought themselves pretty clever by trying to deprive you of your citizenship as a remedy for the troublesome.
Yesterday President Obama or whatever mutant alien life force is inhabiting his body these days began channeling Ronald Reagan.
Bloomberg- President Barack Obama said U.S. public education systems should extend the school year and weed out the worst performing teachers because the future of the nation's economy depends on a more educated workforce.
You see! The comic book explanation doesn't sound quite so ridiculous now does it? Its all the schoolteachers' fault, damn their black hearted souls for ruining the youth of America with their shoddy performance. Funny thing though that through out my years in public school I always managed through the luck of the draw to have the best and most capable teachers in the subjects of history and social studies and English. Yet in the area of Mathematics fate was a cruel mistress for I was forced to endure the most incompetent boobs.
It is one of those unknowable variants of the universe that somehow the other children in the class were able to excel in Mathematics while I was forced to suffer these incompetent instructors. I have a unique insight into public high school because I spent my first two years in one of the best public high schools in America. A high school consistently rated in the top two percent in the nation. Since 1959-60 the school has a graduation rate of 96.6 percent and 95 percent go on to college.
If you were to visit the town where this school resides and ask any resident what is the best thing about your town? They would answer the schools, the town has a crushing property tax burden and yet the houses sell above market prices because parents want their children in that school with its radio and TV station and its nationally recognized theater arts program and most of all its academic excellence.
From there I went to a school that was little more than a warehouse where property taxes to support the school hadn't gone up in my lifetime. The school was dirty and the food was bad. The teachers were demoralized from presenting students with busy work day after day. No swimming pools or television station, no shop or art program we had football and the Junior ROTC. It was a school with diminished expectations you didn't excel in it you merely survived it.
Bloomberg- Obama is promoting his education initiatives, including the "Race to the Top" grant program and a new goal of recruiting 10,000 science, technology, engineering and math teachers over the next two years. As he has in the past, Obama said the nation is falling behind in math and science education and that is hurting U.S. economic competitiveness.
God damn it we just don't have enough convenience store clerks with MBA's in this country. I mean it should be obvious to anyone that Wal-Mart needs more scientists. Oh no, it couldn't be that industry after industry has abandoned this country for cheap third world labor. Where the prevailing wage is five dollars a day and where a good MBA can earn $20,000 per year.
