…to be the commencement speaker at this college.

Oh and by Think Progress’ definition based on their headlines since Gay Marriage has only been legal in the world over the last 15 years or so the entire world would have been “Anti-Gay”. That would include, JFK , FDR Lincoln, Gandhi, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and most of the MSM who didn’t have an epiphany about Gay marriage until the post Clinton years.

I wonder if they would have protested a Muslim speaker in that case?

It’s the same subtle bigotry that you would regularly see concerning southerners around here, but now for our new elites it is standard toward any religious believer who actually follows the tenants of their faith that conflicts with their social norms, but particularly Christianity.

Today semi regular DaTechGuy on DaRadio guest guest Brian Henchey will return the favor.

I’ll be a guest on the Brian Henchey show today on WBRS 100.1 FM. today at 4:35 p.m. EST.

We’ll be talking about the “Would you like fries with that recovery” that the media is so enamored with.

When the unemployment rate went to 9% last week the headlines trumpeted the 244k private sector jobs that were created last month.

They left out the fact that a full 25% of them were at McDonalds.

The Corner asks a question:

…consider this: Had the Obama administration not granted McD’s a waiver from having to abide by the law, it might not have added all those workers. And if the company had added the jobs anyway, they all would have been jobs without health insurance since the company was going to stop providing benefits without the waiver.

For some reason this fact doesn’t seem to have made a splash in the MSM. After all, hard to spin it as a sign of a strong and growing economy.

Exit Question: Since McDonalds made it a point to do all these hires at once rather than gradually, what will happen to the job numbers next month when Mickey d’s isn’t filling all those spots? How will the media spin it?

This report by the HuffPo is not encouraging:

According to estimates by The National Institute for Literacy, roughly 47 percent of adults in Detroit, Michigan — 200,000 total — are “functionally illiterate,” meaning they have trouble with reading, speaking, writing and computational skills. Even more surprisingly, the Detroit Regional Workforce finds half of that illiterate population has obtained a high school degree.

Crooks and Liars is outraged:

We need another wave of Great Society programs, and instead we get deep cuts in the few social programs we have left:

Excuse me, hasn’t Detroit been run by a liberal administration for decades? Weren’t the good people of Detroit protected from the ravages of the evil republican ideas? Haven’t the schools been giving their students proper liberal lessons? Didn’t our liberal friends insist on an educational model that doesn’t bind students by the oppressive Euro-centric cultural constructs of Reading Writing and Arithmetic? Hasn’t all of this been the fruit of the great society.

Yet the prescription they are offering promises only more of the same. Instead of crying foul, our liberal friends should be apologizing to the people of Detroit for leading them down a primrose path without a future. In fact if it wasn’t in such bad taste, they should apologize in writing!
