Zero Tolerance For Stupidity

December 30, 2014

The only question I have is why the administrators at these schools are not fired. Because as I see it, if you’re going to hold the students to such high zero-tolerance standards, should not school leadership be held to even higher standards for zero-tolerance of bad judgement?

When do people wake up to the fact that zero-tolerance is a two way street? More than that, leaders are to be held to higher standards.

Here Are 10 Outrageous ‘Zero Tolerance’ Follies of 2014 – Hit & Run :

Clarke clobber caper | Power Line

December 30, 2014

Wow… Sheriff David Clarke is a hero – a policeman speaking the truth, asking for objective non-inflammatory non-political conversations about police shootings of black men. Oh, and not that it matters, but Sheriff Clarke is black.

I was surprised, to put it mildly, to hear Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke disparaging Mayor de Blasio and President Obama and Obma pal Al Sharpton last week when I happened to catch Clarke’s post-Christmas appearance live on cable news. It’s not that Sheriff Clarke hasn’t distinguished himself as a voice of truth and common sense on matters of race and law enforcement. It’s that he was saying these things on CNN to CNN correspondent (and Twin Cities native) Poppy Harlow.

Networks Spending More Time On Dramatic Weather

December 12, 2014

I can see this easily leading to claims of global warming causing more extreme weather… when really it’s just normal weather being reported more often.

Over the past five years, the newscasts have essentially doubled the amount of time spent on weather and natural disaster stories. The time has more than quadrupled since the early 1990s, said news consultant Andrew Tyndall, who monitors the content of the broadcasts.

ABC’s “World News Tonight” leads the way, particularly since David Muir took over as anchor in September.

“The weather is part of the national conversation and it is part of the news cycle,” said Almin Karamehmedovic, executive producer of “World News Tonight.” ”Increasingly, we see it that way. I’m sure the weather is the same as it was 10 years ago, but we see much more of it.”

Raped By Trees

December 5, 2014

No. 14… think about this:

Pollen is essentially ‘plant sperm’. Therefore, this makes hay fever an STD. Since no one voluntarily takes in pollen, I’ve concluded we’re all being raped by trees.

Our bodies are weird, but in a good way..
