Super Smart Kid Shows Up His Class

Kids-in-classroom

The teacher said, “Let’s begin by reviewing
some American History. Who said ‘Give me Liberty, or give me
Death’?”

She saw a sea of blank faces, except for
Little Akio, a bright foreign exchange student from Japan, who had his hand
up: “Patrick Henry, 1775,” he said.

“Very good! — Who said, ‘Government of the
People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the
Earth’?”

Again, no response except from Little Akio:
“Abraham Lincoln, 1863.”

“Excellent!” said the teacher continuing,
“Let’s try one a bit more difficult — Who said, ‘Ask not what your country
can do for you, but what you can do for your country’?”

Once again, Akio’s was the only hand in the
air and he said: “John F. Kennedy, 1961.

The teacher snapped at the
class, “Class, you should be ashamed of yourselves, Little Akio isn’t from
this country and he knows more about our history than you do.”

She heard a loud
whisper: “Fuck those Japs.”

“Who said that? — I want
to know right now!? she angrily demanded.

Little Akio put his hand
up, “General MacArthur, 1945.”

At that point, a student in
the back said, “I’m gonna puke.’

The teacher glares around
and asks, ‘All right! — Now who said that?”

Again, Little Akio says,
“George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991.”

Now furious, another
student yells, “Oh yeah? — Suck this!”

Little Akio jumps out of
his chair waving his hand and shouts to the teacher, “Bill Clinton, to Monica
Lewinsky, 1997!”

Now with almost mob hysteria someone said, “You little shit! —
If you say anything else — I’ll kill you!”

Little Akio frantically
yells at the top of his voice, “Michael Jackson to the children testifying
against him, 2004.”

The teacher fainted. As the class
gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said, “Oh shit, We’re
screwed!”

Little Akio said quietly, “The American people, November 6,
2012”

Another Reason to Vote the Bums Out

A gasoline tax map that explains a lot

In last week’s post about ExxonMobil’s 2013 earnings, I noted that we earned about 5.5 cents for every gallon of gasoline and other petroleum products we refined, shipped, and sold in the United States. Consider this: The federal and state and local governments collected 40 to 60 cents per gallon in taxes.
The American Petroleum Institute just updated their map showing the combined local, state and federal tax rate in each state as of Jan. 1, when new taxes took effect.

API-US-Map
API US MapThe federal gasoline tax is the same from coast-to-coast –18.4 cents a gallon – which means any variations have been implemented by state and local governments.
The highest gasoline tax in the country is in California, where it now exceeds 70 cents a gallon. Combined with California-specific fuel-blending regulations that drive up refining costs, these taxes help make Golden State gasoline prices the most expensive in the country.
Several other states, such as New York, Connecticut, and Hawaii, are close to California in terms of the fuel-tax burden their residents bear, though none has yet joined in crossing the 70-cent-per-gallon threshold.
I encourage you to study API’s map (click the graphic above to enlarge), or dig into its interactive version for state-and-local-level specifics.

Grumpa Joe’s Opinion

Cigarettes are taxed worse than gas, but I don’t buy them. Politicians know we need fuel to get to a job if we are still lucky enough to have one. Still, they continue to pick our pockets from every angle they know how. Gas is one of those necessary items we need to stay alive. Here is what I propose, that we use our vote to kick every incumbent State politician out of office and replace them with fresh new crooks who will take a year or two to figure out how to bilk us.

Black Activist Awakens His Community

I met the Paul McKinley, the man in this video, at a Tea Party meeting a couple of years ago. He is a fascinating young man who is trying his best to change the system. He has run for office, but failed to beat Jesse Jackson Jr.’s machine. Yet, he has not given up his drive to educate black people on the way our Democrat leaders, going back to Lyndon Johnson, have been enslaving them year after year.

Paul is on the right track, I hope he continues to make a difference. Life has to become better for blacks in America, and men like Paul will make it happen.
