http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/... Says that 2.6% of workers make the federal minimum wage, but that number doesn't include the fact that over 53% of the population live in states where the state's minimum wage is higher than the federal (http://www.dol.gov/whd/minwage/america.h...). If you extrapolate the same rate, that says over 4.9% of workers (about one in every twenty) makes federal minimum wage where such a low rate is allowed. That number is over four times what uneducated conservatives want you to believe. Kind of makes you wonder what other lies uneducated conservatives are trying to pass off.

Obama's statement was more about concern for Houston's 18-year-old daughter. Does Temple have a young daughter? Far more people know Whitney Houston than Shirley Temple. She also died of a drowning, not a drug overdose, as your conservative libel would imply. But I guess it's just another extreme right talking point to complain about a democratic president not giving enough sympathy for the death of a Republican politician.

Don't believe conservative lies. Obama did not have the U.S. flag lowered for Whitney Houston, it was governor Chris Christie for the state of New Jersey only.
Like they always say- Reality has a well-known liberal bias.

Graduation rates by state - http://www.governing.com/gov-data/high-s... As you can see, NY is pretty average, not "one of the worst graduation (sic) in the country". And if you look at that chart, the top graduating rate goes to Iowa. Let's see, NY has 28% private schools (see http://new-york.educationbug.org/private... and http://new-york.educationbug.org/public-... ). The top performing state in the country must have a lot more private schools, right? Nope! Iowa, the top performing state has half the private schools (see http://iowa.educationbug.org/public-scho... and http://iowa.educationbug.org/private-sch... ) as New York. But then, as they always say- facts have a liberal bias.

To say the government lost $10 billion on the GM deal is a rather closed-minded way of looking at it. Because of the deal and the jobs it saved, the government is now raking in an extra $40 billion of tax revenue every year. It's a win-win. Like they say, "Reality has a well-known liberal bias."

As anyone who can read the article can plainly see, it starts off with "The object: Target an innocent victim for no other reason than they are there, then sucker punch him or her." and later on in the story it details "there was no evidence to prove Weaver intended to rob the victim." Like they always say, "Reality has a well-known liberal bias".

But a white person did pull out a gun and shoot one of them - http://www.mlive.com/news/index.ssf/2013... And guess what, no "race baiters" are complaining about what he did, just the libel of Sharpton based on a false conservative bias. Like they always say, "Reality has a well-known liberal bias".

I for one am glad the parade has moved on to being the more inclusive Holiday Parade. It's great to take the kids out to a fun public event without some religious theme being forced down our throat.

God is mentioned all the time in schools, it just can't be forced on kids. And sex, unlike god, is true and is actually something students need to learn about. Lack of sex education results in unplanned pregnancies (remember Bristol Palin?). Like they say, "Reality has a well-known liberal bias".

MEMA is right in that the article is about kids beating up kids, before the comments were hijacked by a warrantless and untrue attack on teachers. I guess while other commenters on the site can't be there to stick up for the kids, we can at least be there for the teachers, when they're attacked and slandered on here. Heck, the "teacher" named for making too much as a teacher, isn't even a teacher. *Shakes head*.
