Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 11/24/2014- Thanksgiving Holiday Ahead!

24 November 2014 at 2:44:38 PM

Here comes my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving. On the leadup to it, have been making smorbrod with herring, cheese on rye. Delish! Later this afternoon going to start some holiday cooking, including making pecan brittle, carmels, and toffee. 

Weird bureaucratic stuff. I wondered about something I read on a different post and called up to a Texas agency (TMHP)  five different times, spoke with five different people, and got 5 different replies, even though I was very specific. Kind of wore me out. Makes me think if you want to be sure of something and call the government, you better call in at least twice and then SEE the paper evidence.. EVERY TIME! hah! 

I watched President Obama give his immigration speech the other night -In case you missed it.

If you live in Texas or are planning to, plan to teach your children yourself, because the textbooks approved by the state SBOE are laughable. Makes me think that if I had kids in the school system, I'd just plan to go through and read the textbook WITH them, and point out the obvious baloney. CANNOT leave this up to the public school system if you care about your child.

The textbooks had a lot of interesting takes on American history, like how the founding fathers were inspired by Moses, because a “nation needs a written code of behavior.” Never mind that the Ten Commandments are about individual moral behavior, while the Constitution is largely about voting and representation and stuff, and the Bill of Rights is mostly about restrictions on government power to compel behavior. Moses done it.

THANKS, Rick Perry!

Networks divided on use of term "illegal"

Salmon argues there’s good reason to avoid the term:

The reason is simple: People who speed aren’t “illegal drivers,” nor are people who fall behind on their taxes “illegal filers.” Even soldiers fighting against the United States without belonging to a formal national army are generally referred to as “unlawful” rather than “illegal” combatants. The use of the term “illegal” to refer to a person is a usage which is confined to exactly one group of people: Migrants. As a result, “illegal,” when used as a noun, always means immigrants — people whose only crime is the victimless pursuit of liberty and prosperity.

According to Salmon’s breakdown, NBC, ABC, Fusion, CNN, and Univision refuse to use the term, while CBS allows its use:

In July, CBS News ran a story under the headline “Is the surge of illegal child immigrants a national security threat?” — as though simply being a child, with the wrong paperwork, is enough to make one an illegal person.

Now for some videos.
