I just got a phone call from the Obama campaign

It’s the evening of September 20, 2012. I’m sitting here typing now – trying to get this down as accurately as I can remember. The following is just a rough version based on my memory – I did not record the call, so these are not the exact words.

Chicago’s government-run health care is almost as horrible as its government-run schools

This article from CBS is a great example of the mindset of the people who run the city of Chicago.

Chicago set up a government run health care clinic inside a garbage truck garage. Only after the media reported on it did the government decide it was a bad idea.

The mindset that says it’s a good idea to run a health care clinic in such a filthy environment, is the same mindset that is in charge of running Chicago’s public schools.

Chicago’s striking public school teachers earn $74,839 per year, and 39% of them send their own children to private schools

The striking public school teachers in Chicago earn $74,839 per year – and they get summer off.

39% of Chicago’s striking public school teachers send their own children to private schools.

Chicago’s charter schools are still open because their teachers are not on strike.

The U.S. Department of Education reports that 79% of Chicago eighth are graders not grade-level proficient in reading, and 80% are not grade-level proficient in math.

When Barack Obama lived in Chicago, he refused to allow his children to attend Chicago’s public schools.

When Obama carried out his Solyndra con game, he broke the same law that Martha Stewart went to prison for breaking

In 2009 the Obama administration gave $535 million to Solyndra, claiming that it would create 4,000 new jobs. However, instead of creating those 4,000 new jobs, the company went bankrupt. It was later revealed that the company’s shareholders and executives had made substantial donations to Obama’s campaign, that the company had spent a large sum of money on lobbying, and that Solyndra executives had had many meetings with White House officials.

Anne-Marie Slaughter is a spoiled whiny crybaby

In the July/August 2012 issue of Atlantic magazine, Anne-Marie Slaughter wrote this article called “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All.”

The very title of the article smacks of radical leftist feminism – an ideology which see victimhood everywhere. In the real world, regardless of one’s gender, it is not possible for a person to “have it all.” And yet, because Slaughter does not “have it all,” she assumes that she is a victim of sexism and gender discrimination.
