So excrementitious was the president's second inaugural address that even the Pittsburgh branch of the Barack Obama Admiration Society, headquartered at the offices of The Toledo, Ohio, Block Bugler, panned it. It labeled Mr. Obama's renewed call to European Socialism as a “flat” speech that “never soared.” Wow. Look for The Bugler to endorse the United Nations/European Union/Hamas-backed candidate in 2016. ... A not-so-funny thing happened on the way to high schoolers getting a leg up on their college studies through good scores on Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate exams. Dartmouth says it no longer will give college credit for good scores beginning in 2018 after ascertaining that those scores are not indicative of college-level competence. In fact, when Dartmouth tested some of the “scholars,” they bombed. Uh-oh, sounds like yet another educratic racket has been exposed. ... The Hill newspaper reports that the Obama administration has stopped referring to those government-dictated health insurance “exchanges” as “exchanges” in favor of health insurance “marketplaces.” Never mind that such a government-dictated, government-controlled and government-subsidized product is the furthest thing from a “marketplace.” Aficionados of such marketplace perversion might as well be honest about it and add another tax to underwrite the construction of hundreds of thousands of Barack Obama statues to pay homage to their “dear leader.”
