Does Obama Suffer From Verbigeration By Teleprompter Proxy on Education?

It would appear that Obama suffers from verbigeration and it is not exclusive to Education… however it is a prime example as hubby sends me this note today:

Subject: TALK ABOUT “TIMING”!!!!!!

The Obama Plan: Support competitive grant programs that reward states and schools for changing the system by improving how they get the best teachers in the classroom, extending the school day and year, supporting the creation of smarter tests, using data to improve practice, and raising standards for all kids.
THIS SEEMS TO SHOUT “GRANTS FOR MORE USELESS STUDIES”
This is so associated with your blog yesterday that again, it shows how ON THE SPOT you are!

The pertinent blog entry: Is the NAEP Really Making a Difference or Cushy Job and Engineered Social Scam?

Is the NAEP Really Making a Difference or Cushy Job and Engineered Social Scam?

Why is the NAEP funding Educational Research Grants?
Why does the NAEP use input directly to the site from children across this country? What do they really do with or to the information provided at the NAEP?
What did this quick study WWC Quick Review: Evaluation of the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program Final Report prove for our educational system and our students across the United States of America?

Has Your Child Received 1 of These?

Organizational Chart with a long list of lackeys

Director of IES John Q. Easton

But I am sure he really might have found his niche here:

Maybe not, Mr. Easton doesn’t seem to be an active participant:

NAEP is a very revealing site to visit! Lots of payroll, lots of money flow, lots of lofty thoughts, but not too much in the way of  action, performance or accomplishments.

More Waste of Tax Dollars and Abuse of Government Spending by the Census Bureau

Hmm? Enough spending yet, now a postcard reminder!

Stop the insanity of government spending! New Obama mantra should be “Waste, Abuse, Spend”!

So… Again… What Are American Citizens Getting In Return for Our Wasted Tax Dollars by the Current Administration?

Come on Congress, Come on Obama, What Are American Citizens Getting In Return for Our Wasted Tax Dollars During This Round After Round of Manure?

Why is it that the more that they spend, the worst and even less than basic services are rendered for those same tax dollars? This is progress?

4 Day Work Week hmm?
“Going Green The Four-Day Workweek Is Winning Fans” via TIME.
Implementation or Planning:
“GM plant recalls 70 workers, switches to four-day week” hmm? A portion of Government Motors!
“WDBO Local News-Tax watchdog group recommends four-day work week” hmm? Watchdog Group had to recommend?
“4-Day Work Week For El Paso City Employees”
“Four-Day Week and the Economy” via… just check all the associations?
Is this creating a problem for a fix via a:

4 Day School Week hmm? “How the Four-Day School Week Costs Parents” How is this safe?
Causes and Effect:
“Schools investigate four-day work week” Purposely creates a 4 Day School Week for Children thereby a hardship for working parents or does this circle back up to the 4 Day Work Week as a fix?
“Board’s Decision to Close 28 Kansas City Schools Follows Years of Inaction” Did you see how just Kansas City, Missouri’s Stimulus was allocated? Wasted! Why?

5 Day Delivery Mail Week hmm?
“Postal Service seeks 5-day delivery” hmm? Doesn’t mention cutting a 6 day week within the Postal System. Overtime still, and then mail carriers of the future out on bad backs due to heavier loads? But wait, it’s even better, or not…… Did you read the article on the loans to the USPS, now look at Stimulus Funds allocated http://stimuluswatch.org/2.0/search/awards/c7966cbce326f35b8f6137903c4ca0ee
Wasted! Why?

What Value is Gained from Auto Manufacturer Ownership via a takeover by the Government:
Chrysler Vehicle Lineup and let’s see if there is energy efficiency and less dependence on oil with the mileage of the Chrysler Models. NO!
Chevy Car Model Lineup and let’s see if there is energy efficiency and less dependence on oil with the mileage of the Chevrolet GM Models. NO!

None of these little bits are a nick in the surface, let alone a scratch. Don’t even get me started on the Banking, Wall Street, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, US Treasury and Federal Reserve fee-asking fiascos. There’s Waste, Fraud and Abuse at the highest exponential levels during this administration. Check you own city, county, state on http://stimuluswatch.org/2.0/

***Who is holding the money? Don’t say it’s sold debt because it doesn’t add up!

Blanche Lincoln Ready to Waste Money on a Failed Re-Election in 2010

What a shoddy grab for attention and oh so staged!

She never listens, as always….she talks:

Blanche Lincoln Sinking and Stinking in Arkansas
Desperation as Blanche Lincoln Attempts Image Change Through Recent Voting
Oh How the Mighty Are Stalling – Blanche Lincoln
Blanche Lincoln Puts MSM and Constituents on Ignore

Your Claims are Baseless in Your Ad.

By the way Blanche, how did you vote on Health Care, hmm?

Some of the terms definitely cross all spans. And there are so many more terms, but it’s more shame upon America. The State of the Union is a Mess, directly caused by the Obama administration. If that was what he was hoping to change, he hit the mark. That seed he’s planted is now a full grown germinating noxious weed.
