This Is Not A Test

leave a comment »

I can’t help but laugh whenever I read one of these stories.

President Hussein said Monday that students should take fewer standardized tests and school performance should be measured in other ways. Too much testing makes education boring for kids, he said.

“Too often what we have been doing is using these tests to punish students,” the Kenyan Koffee Fetcher told students and parents at a town hall hosted by the Univision Spanish-language television network at Bell Multicultural High School in Washington, D.C.

The Muslim Wookie Fucker, who is pushing a rewrite of the nation’s education law that would ease some of its rigid measurement tools, said policymakers should find a test that “everybody agrees makes sense” and administer it in less pressure-packed atmospheres, potentially every few years instead of annually.

At the same time, Kenya’s Favorite Son said, schools should be judged on criteria other than student test performance, including attendance rate.

Why do I laugh? Because every time I read one of these stories, I can’t help but remember when the better half was off applying to Ph.D. programs and repeatedly being denied. And just why was she being denied? Because of her lower-than-average GRE score.

Never mind the fact her grades were in the high 3.0s, she had real-word experience and was on the way to graduating with a M.A. Several academics flat-out told her all they do is look at the GRE Scores. Now you might say, “But kkk, maybe there were more qualified candidates.” Well if that’s the case, then how come her much less qualified foreign classmates got into the same programs?

I’ve often heard academics whine about testing, yet they are just as guilty of doing the same thing when it comes to admissions.

For the record, not getting into a Ph.D. program was one of the best things that every happened to Mrs. kkk — and that’s coming from her.

Other people from her Masters’ program got into Ph.D. programs with worse grades and zero experience, but their GRE scores were average. Every time I hear about academics whine about testing in government schools, this memory pops into my noggin’.

Mapping Out Google’s Photo Schedule

leave a comment »

So today I took a look at the kkk Manor via Google Maps.

I really wish the Google People would have gone by my house with the camera after we got rid of the !@#$% weeds on the hillside from a year or two ago.

Wow. I can’t even remember what year we completed that project.

My Big Redneck Blog Entry

leave a comment »

So a while back I tuned in to this CMT original series, “My Big Redneck Wedding.”

Yeah, it’s pretty much what you’d presume it to be.

I tuned into this show because there was an article in my local fishwrap about the “finale” episode, which was filmed not too far from where I live. After that show aired, I didn’t hear anything about this series getting renewed for a second season.

Well guess what I just found while going through possible viewing options for last night?

Yep.

And now it’s on season THREE.

I missed an entire season of this television masterpiece. 😦

Don’t Hate The Playgirl, Hate The Jews

leave a comment »

Oh, I will be getting this Playboy magazine for the articles.

Helen Thomas is not sorry, nor were the comments that ended her career accidental.

“I knew exactly what I was doing – I was going for broke,” she told Playboy in the magazine’s April interview. “I had reached the point of no return. You finally get fed up … I finally wanted to speak the truth.”

Thomas, of course, left her perch as the dean of the White House press corps last year after telling a rabbi and blogger that Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and “go home” to “Poland, Germany and America and everywhere else.” Her family is Lebanese and she grew up in the Detroit area, home to one of the country’s densest populations of Arab Americans.

She spoke to Playboy at length about the situation in Palestine, her feelings on American support of Israel, and her take on Jews.

But her most controversial comments echoed ones she’s made before about the influence of Jews in American life, which have contributed to her name being stripped from journalism awards.

“[The Jews are] using their power, and they have power in every direction,” she told Playboy. “Power over the White House, power over Congress … Everybody is in the pocket of the Israeli lobbies, which are funded by wealthy supporters, including those from Hollywood. Same thing with the financial markets. There’s total control … It isn’t the 2 percent. It’s real power when you own the White House, when you own these other places in terms of your political persuasion. Of course they have power. [To the interviewer] You don’t deny that. You’re Jewish, aren’t you?”

She also had some controversial views about memorializing the Holocaust.

“There’s nothing wrong with remembering it, but why do we have to constantly remember?” she said. “We’re not at fault. I mean, if they’re going to put a Holocaust museum in every city in Germany, that’s fine with me. But we didn’t do this to the Jews. Why do we have to keep paying the price and why do they keep oppressing the Palestinians? Do the Jews ever look at themselves? Why are they always right? Because they have been oppressed throughout history, I know. And they have this persecution. That’s true, but they shouldn’t use that to dominate.”

Here’s what I’ve always wanted to know, and maybe Grandma Helen can answer this for me. When the Jews own an industry like the media, is it just one Jew that does the ownership or is it like a big mutual fund where all the Jews get a cut? Do the Jews get to take turns owning certain endeavors — all those with last names ending A-M get first crack at the banks while those with last names ending N-Z get dibs on this year’s new military contracts?

Locked Up Abored

leave a comment »

I talked about National Geographic’s “Locked Up Abroad” series a while back. Let’s see what I said.

So while I was cleaning the house yesterday, the National Geographic Channel (err, sorry, NAT-GEO) ran several episodes of its “Locked Up: Abroad” series. I’ve talked about this show in the past, and it always cracks me up whenever an episode involves some dope who’s a n00b to the drug-trafficking game. For some reason, I get a big kick out of seeing these people get busted.

“But *name of drug dealer* said the airport security overseas NEVER checks luggage for drugs.”

Lolz.

OK. Well, today I went on another “Locked Up” bender. This is one of those shows I watch a bunch at a time; if there’s a marathon on during the weekend, I might tune in. if I have nothing better to do.

This latest crop of shows wasn’t all that entertaining. In fact, a number of them barely touched upon the actual prison experience. Most of them dealt with how the spotlighted prisoner ended up in the foreign slammer. I don’t care how someone smuggled hash into Tokyo or out of Mexico. I want to see them fend for their lives in incarceration conditions that make the ACLU’s whining about U.S. inmates not receiving Internet access laughable. This latest batch was just … lame. It took 45 minutes for the Tokyo episode to even get to the part about jail. And even then it was boring. So the person had to sit down in one spot in her cell each day. Where were the shankings? The drugs-for-sex inmate transactions? The death?

You know, all the good stuff?

Better Late Than Never

leave a comment »

Elizabeth Taylor was 15 minutes late to her funeral.

The actress, who was laid to rest Thursday in a private funeral at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale outside L.A., had made specific requirements about the service before she died Wednesday at age 79.

“The service was scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. but at Miss Taylor’s request started late,” her rep told Access Hollywood. “Miss Taylor had left instructions that it was to begin at least 15 minutes later than publicly scheduled, with the announcement, ‘She even wanted to be late for her own funeral.’”

Better than being 15 minutes early.

Petty Politics

leave a comment »

You know, I say my fair share about the Kenyan Koffee Fetcher, but enough is enough.

After the death of Osama bin Laden, some Republicans have come out and said shit like, “Well if it wasn’t for George W. Bush and his commitment to the WAR ON TERROR, the Muslim Wookie Fucker wouldn’t have been able to get bin Laden.”

Well, OK, maybe these people didn’t say, “Muslim Wookie Fucker.” But they’ve pretty much said the rest.

Come on, now. It makes you look petty and stupid.

Kenyan Koffee Fetcher followers will claim his “go-ahead” to get bin Laden is one of the most courageous things any human has done since recorded history. Equally dumb are those on the other side saying things like what I mentioned above.

Those people in the middle of the political spectrum probably give the Muslim Wookie Fucker a pat on the back for letting the military do its job and let Osama meet Allah face-to-face. These were the same people who thought, whether right or wrong, the previous president thought he was acting in the country’s best interest in regards to national security.

I guess what I’m trying to say is can’t we all just get along ONCE IN A WHILE?

Sometimes I hate partisanship — and this coming from someone that edits out the name in news articles of the current occupier in the White House.
