Liberals worry SAT places too much emphasis on English language


The SAT has been redesigned, and now liberals are worried it has too many words in English.

Chief among the changes, experts say: longer and harder reading passages and more words in math problems

Imagine that--words in math problems! Real life math problems don't have words in them, do they?

The shift is leading some educators and college admissions officers to fear that the revised test will penalize students who have not been exposed to a lot of reading, or who speak a different language at home — like immigrants and the poor.

Immigrants=illegal aliens. What will the illegals do? Go home, maybe?
As for the poor, it is clear that only the children of the rich can learn English. They are paid hansomely by their parents to do so.

For instance, short sentence-completion questions, which tested logic and vocabulary, have been eliminated in favor of longer reading passages, from literary sources like “Ethan Frome” and “Moby-Dick,” or political ones, like John Locke’s ideas about consent of the governed. These contain sophisticated words and thoughts in sometimes ornate diction.

Why should the SAT test sophisticated thinking? Or thinking of any kind?

Jay Bacrania, the chief executive of Signet Education, a test-prep company based in Cambridge, said he found blocks of text from the new test to average at least a grade level higher than text from the old one.

Imagine that--making the SAT harder. Doesn't it send the wrong message to raise standards?

Seriously, shouldn't we expect students who want to go to college to understand English? The writers of this article seem genuinely puzzled. And seriously deluded.

New Rubio Cartoons!


By now everyone knows about Rubio's meltdown in the New Hampshire debate. It was a curious mixture of melting, with Rubio's forehead turning into an olympic sized swimming pool, and robotic behavior, with the superficial Rubio repeating the same phrase over and over.

Trump thinks Conservatism means "conserving your wealth"


In the latest debate Donald Trump made it clear, once again, that not only he is not conservative, but he has absolutely no idea what conservatism is. When asked to define conservative, Trump, who usually gives expansive answers, could only manage to speak for less than 30 seconds before running out of ammo. His answer was that "Conservatism means... to conserve... your wealth".

Are you comfortable with the idea of Trump appointees on the Supreme Court?


If you support Donald Trump because of his stand on illegal immigration, you are supporting him on everything, including his future picks for the Supreme Court, of which he could have up to four. But very litte is known about what kind of judges Trump would appoint. If Trump were to appoint leftists to the Court, it could do even worse damage to the country than the current illegal alien invasion. Here are what leftists would like to legislate from the bench:

Trump campaign manager is a lobbyist who has never won an election


We are repeatedly told that Trump, being a brilliant businessman, will pick the best people to work for him. But one of his most relevant picks is that of campaign manager. Trump's campaign manager, Corey "The Big Lebowski" Lewandowski, is a long time lobbyist who has managed exactly one major political campaign... which he promptly lost!

Obama, promoting Islamophilia, acts like a registered sect offender


President Obama went to a radical mosque today and delivered a lecture to Americans about how mean they are to Muslims, without saying a word about the Muslim responsibility to fight radicalism in its own ranks. While Obama lectures us on Islamophobia from a mosque with terrorist ties, it is really not "Islamophobia" he is lecturing against but "Islamophilia" he is advocating for, a willing blindness to the failures of Islam to combat radicalism in its ranks. By doing so he offends Jews and Christians who have legitimate concerns about radical Islam, portraying them as bigots.

Do Sarah Palin's endorsements influence you?


Sarah Palin endorsed Donald Trump. They seem to have a lot in common. They both find Twitter perfect for their purposes, given the 140 character message length. They both often fail to write or speak in complete sentences. While offering a vaguely conservative message from a distance, when you listen closely to either you find little of substance.

Trump, whining about Iowa schlonging, again raises temperment questions


One of the things that has troubled me the most about Donald Trump is his lack of emotional maturity. Unlike a reality TV show host, it is vital that the President of the United States be very grown up and mature. But Trump, time and time again, acts like a child, name calling, holding grudges, and crying when things don't go his way.
