Do you think a re-rendering of "Which Side Are You On?" could be helpful in the NYC charter school heartbreaker?

Something like:

In battling for little children
Way up in NYC
You're either for choice and charters
Or a thug for the UFT

Which side are you on
etc.

They ARE such thugs and I'd like to use one of their anthems against them. I can't strum a guitar and sing a soulful ballad, but many here can. Do you think a video with reworked "Harlan County" lyrics could be effective?

So much is at stake for these kids.

about Nelson Strobridge Talbott 111, one recalls he was horribly wrong in the 80s writing for Time, so naturally he was considered a Russian expert, andTretyakov, the KGB defector thought him an easy mark,

So true, Tonto. And a bonus is that Pete Seeger will be rolling in his grave.

Strobe Talbott: The Clark Clifford of journalism

NK(withnewsoftware)

In all seriousness for a moment. What Warren Wilhelm is doing to those kids and their moms is a disgrace on so many levels. Immoral and indecent. Those are old fashioned concepts, but still true. he's crushing kids who are trying to better themselves and make a go of life, and he's fronting for a rich and powerful union to crush them. Disgusting.

narciso

Of course, that is what they do, I call him Mayor Bane for a reason,

Though he's doing exactly what he said he would do, NK. As I said in the last thread, NYCers slept through the election and let this goon come to power.

Bane Wilhelm is very different from Dinkens. very different. Dinkins was a hapless lib and amoral machine pol. But he was a nice man, and to me surprisingly supportive of the military, he was very supportive of expanding Fleet Week (as long as no Nuke CVs came.) Wilhelm is a malignant cretin. Crushing good people and destroying worthy institutions is what he does. very different man from Dinkins.

I SUSPECT THE NYT PREFERS STROBE'S TAKE FOR THE SAME REASON THEY LIKED Duranty's. Who needs spies, with press like this?

jimmyk

I think Barry and Warren are very similar. Both got elected with almost nothing on their resumes, and believed that being in power enabled them to do whatever they want. Both care nothing for the poor, only for the unions and other extortion rackets that can help keep them and their ilk in power. The result is that both wreak havoc that will take years to undo.

NK(withnewsoftware)

To Ignatz's 11:54 point. A hapless liberal colleague had the misfortune to ask me why I disliked Warren Wilhelm so much (in truth she is trying to learn) so I told her ... long and loudly. At the end of my dissertation she asked, can you say ONE good thing about him? I said yes... he's not a phony. He doesn't pretend to be anything but a Marxist, Union Shill, Bastard and I respect honesty. I thought she was going to cry.

Matt,

I believe it's something we can all agree upon. BOzo finds Mooch totally loathsome and Mooch finds BOzo totally loathsome.

I certainly agree 100% with both of them and I believe many others do as well.

Michael McFaul along with Stephen Hadley were on Kudlow's yesterday in a pretty extensive interview segment.

I checked for the online video and it was too short to try to link but the gist was that both men agreed with each others opinions for the most part.

McFaul said he was pretty pessimistic regarding Putin's intentions for the Crimea down the road. Hadley not so much. Both of them did rather stop the rah, rahing Kudlow's been extending to O's foreign policy certainly.

Kudlow has been around so long he can get some pretty knowledgeable people to interview.

The Syrian connection rears it’s ugly head.

http://consortiumnews.com/2014/03/02/what-neocons-want-from-ukraine-crisis/

“Though I’m told the Ukraine crisis caught Obama and Putin by surprise, the neocon determination to drive a wedge between the two leaders has been apparent for months, especially after Putin brokered a deal to head off U.S. military strikes against Syria last summer and helped get Iran to negotiate concessions on its nuclear program, both moves upsetting the neocons who had favored heightened confrontations.

Putin also is reported to have verbally dressed down Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and then-Saudi intelligence chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan over what Putin considered their provocative actions regarding the Syrian civil war. So, by disrupting neocon plans and offending Netanyahu and Bandar, the Russian president found himself squarely in the crosshairs of some very powerful people.

Neoconglomoration

The fact is that democracy was not a demand on the streets of Kiev. The current record of events indicates that protests of civil dissatisfaction were organized by reactionary neo-Nazi forces intent on fomenting a major domestic crisis ousting Ukraine’s legitimate government. As events continue to spiral out of control, here is the chronology of how the coup was engineered to install a government more favorable to EU and US goals.

The main takeaway from 1:02 is MO's lack of class, and her contempt for Barry, the latter we see goes back to before he was president. (The lack of class presumably goes back to adolescence.)

narciso

well if they are printing Victor Louis's press releases, as Talbott did, and he similar was fooled by Tretyakov, who curiously died the day the Chapman ring went home,

Bagley notes in his memoir, how the Soviet station was basically fooled by Zhomov, who
was essentially KGB counterintelligence for three years, while he pretended to be a defector.

Don't chicken out now........

McFaul is a decent enough fellow, his gripes were detailed in his farewell interview in the New Republic, I guess the parallel is somewhat like William Bullitt in the 30s. where he had no support from the administration, as the reality of Stalin
was becoming apparent,

Old Lurker

Besides, are not both those girls way too old for the jumping in bed with mom & dad every morning phase?

This is just a planted story to offset the tabloid stories of their estrangement.

3. What is God ?
Earlier I shared my family's joy at younger daughter's acceptance to Hillsdale Class of 2018.

Many responded with well-wishes and congratulations (thanks!) and a few mentioned having wished they had attended Hillsdale (as do I). What you may not know is that Hillsdale has (and is increasing) an online course offering. If you have heard of any of these of courses, most likely it is "Constitution 101."

What you may not know is that Hillsdale offers online courses in Economics and History, and now, the newest in the series:

Great Books 101: Ancient to Medieval
These courses are open to all and for free, registration is desired, but not required.

If you want to have a thoroughly enjoyable and provocative 40' sample of the lectures you will experience, listen to Dr Larry Arnn's intro lecture (first of ten in the course) Literature and the Liberal Arts at Hillsdale the next nine lectures will roll out weekly, with assigned reading etc.

Sandy The DistrictsLieFallowWhileThe CapitolGorgesItselfDaze

This is great stuff, world-class instruction, which only requires your time and interest. We talk all the time about "what should be done" "LIV" "the Lackowitz Sisters" etcetera. Some have suggested that America would have been better served if the money spent on the Romney campaign had been spent on building more Hillsdales around the country.

I think of Hillsdale College akin to a Tier One military unit like ST6 or Delta, regarding which General Pete Schoomaker used to say, "these are high-value, low density organizations" which cannoy not be mass-produced. That is, there is nothing "General Issue" (as in G.I. Joe) about the Tier One units, nor, in my view is there anything General Issue about an education from Hillsdale. Hillsdale cannot be mass produced, but certainly, what Hillsdale tries to impart is open to all.

So, you have the opportunity, you have the time, and aside from the costs of the computer, your internet connection, and your time, the cost to take the course is FREE.

Do it, you will be glad you did.

Oh ! and those three questions..., Dr Arnn says, that's a good reason to take the course.

Jack is Back

Hit,

What's the roux for - fish?

The best I ever had was a little seafood restaurant called Le Duguesclin in Grandcamp-Maisy in Normandy just down the street from the little Musee de Rangers which is dedicated, of course, to "the boys of pont d'huc".

Most memorable trip I have ever had spending 3 days in Normandy. Very moving experience.

hit and run

Ok, roux done. Simmering going on now.

So, I had a 9:30 meeting this morning. In the meeting the power went out in the building. Eh, fine, whatever. We huddled around the presenter's computer since the projector wouldn't work without A/C power. Got done with the meeting. Unfortunately, my laptop battery had no juice left, so no reason for me to stay in the office.

::Imma goin home::

Head out to the front entrance and........

So, the front door is hooked to a magnetic lock that releases when someone from the inside approaches the door. But the lock is . . . wait for it . . . electrically powered.

No electricity, no release. I can't get out.

No problem, I'll just use another exit. Except, I'm in the lobby now. The only way to get into the building from the lobby is by swiping your access card.

Wait. What?

Yeah, the access pads are . . . dependent on electricity to operate.

ZOMG! I'M STUCK IN THE LOBBY!!!!!!

I'm on the phone with mrs hit and run when all this is going down. Tell her I have to get off the phone so I can figure it out. Just then, someone comes through the door on the upstairs of the lobby.

"Hold the door, don't let it close!" Alas and alack, she doesn't hear me.

So now there are two of us stranded in the lobby.

Go through my phone to find the number of someone I know is in the office who can come to the lobby and free us.

::here she comes::

"Hold the door, don't let it close!"

She didn't really understand why I called her in the first place. Slam goes the door.

So now there are three of us stranded in the lobby.

So, I start going through my phone again trying to find someone else who's in the office.

Just then I hear the door upstairs open.

"Hold the door, don't let it close!"

As I'm yelling, I'm running up the stairs. To no avail. Door slams.

And then there were four.

Finally, someone comes through the door on the downstairs of the lobby.

Fortunately, I was within eyesight of this guy.

"Hold the door, don't let it close!" --fire shooting out of my eyes.

FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST, THANK GOD ALMIGHTY WE ARE FREE AT LAST.

hit, I was told a horrid story this weekend--a true one. Seems many yeas ago before emergency call buttons were required in home elevators, a very rich DC family went off on a months' long vacation and cut off the electricity to their home. They forgot the maid was still in the house--in the elevates--with predictable consequences not discovered until they returned home.
