Too Busy to Testify

***Yeah, poor Hillary. Secretary of State, yet she can't be bothered to alter her schedule to testify in what may be one of the most important issues in the last year. She's just another Obama puppet, doing as she's told.

***I think this General sex scandal is a smokescreen for all the ridiculous voting irregularities that have popped up. This administration is nothing if not good at covering its tracks with diversions, and unfortunately a big chunk of the American electorate fell for it.

***Ohio families face food stamp cuts, Republicans will be blamed. As Rush says, there's no way they were gonna let this out before the election. Well Ohio - you made your bed. Lay in it.

RUSH: This is out of Ohio.  And, of course, there was no way this news was going to hit before the election.  Ohio families receiving food stamps -- and there's a ton of them, because we learned yesterday that the food stamp rolls grew at a record pace from July to August.  We've already got 47 million Americans on food stamps and growing.  We have the regime advertising in Mexico on Mexican radio soap operas for food stamps in America, how to access them, how to get them.

***"Absolute certainty" of a White House coverup of Benghazi. Well of course there was/is. But our sucky media has no curiosity in the matter, because they don't want to hurt their Wonder Boy. Geez, this makes me sick.

Earning Your Desk

A True Story -- Author unknown

Back in September of 2005, on the first day of school, Martha Cothren, a social studies school teacher at Robinson High School in Little Rock, did something not to be forgotten. On the first day of school, with permission of the school superintendent, the principal and the building supervisor, she took all of the desks out of the classroom. The kids came into first period, they walked in, there were no desks. They obviously looked around and said, "Ms. Cothren, where's our desks?"
And she said, "You can't have a desk until you tell me how you earn them."
They thought, "Well, maybe it's our grades."
"No," she said.
"Maybe it's our behavior."
And she told them, "No, it's not even your behavior."
And so they came and went in the first period, still no desks in the classroom. Second period, same thing, third period. By early afternoon television news crews had gathered in Ms. Cothren's class to find out about this crazy teacher who had taken all the desks out of the classroom. The last period of the day, Martha Cothren gathered her class.
They were at this time sitting on the floor around the sides of the room. And she says, "Throughout the day no one has really understood how you earn the desks that sit in this classroom ordinarily." She said, "Now I'm going to tell you."
Martha Cothren went over to the door of her classroom and opened it, and as she did 27 U.S. veterans, wearing their uniforms, walked into that classroom, each one carrying a school desk. And they placed those school desks in rows, and then they stood along the wall. And by the time they had finished placing those desks, those kids - for the first time I think perhaps in their lives - understood how they earned those desks.
Martha said, "You don't have to earn those desks. These guys did it for you. They put them out there for you, but it's up to you to sit here responsibly to learn, to be good students and good citizens, because they paid a price for you to have that desk, and don't ever forget it."
In 2006 the Veterans of Foreign Wars named Martha Cothren their "Teacher of the Year."
