The right to bear ping pong balls.

Table tennis, when played right, can be a beautiful game. I played with a buddy of mine at a club he had joined a few weeks ago, and I had a blast. He destroyed me, but given that I hadn't played a serious game in years I didn't feel too bad.

So where am I going with all this table tennis talk? Well it seems that one republican lawmaker in Texas doesn't share my view of table tennis. In fact, he actually believes that it is more dangerous to play table tennis than to play with guns.

"Incoming Texas State Rep. Kyle Kacal says guns don’t kill people—ping-pong kills people.

"I've heard of people being killed playing ping-pong—ping-pongs are more dangerous than guns," he says. "Flat-screen TVs are injuring more kids today than anything."'

OK, the flat screen TV could probably hurt kids, but "ping-pong"?
Let's forget, for a minute, that according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission this is not true. But the very thought of a lawmaker coming up with "ping-pong" as one of the things that a parent should be concerned with for their child is just...well it boggles the mind.

Finally, I am glad to see that the republicans will stay in Washington after their "Plan B" vote tonight. I am sure that Mr. Tan Man will pull enough of his members in line to get enough votes. But I have to wonder if there is a Plan C, though. I mean raising income taxes on those who make over a million dollars is not quite what we had in mind when we asked both sides to reach a compromise. And then, to top it off, Plan B would actually end up raising taxes on lower middle class folks. This is not good.

Keep working boys, and don't leave Washington until that cliff is averted.

I think we're going with Plan O: Destroy the American economy by running up the debt to $30 trillion so that America can be "fundamentally changed" into a weaker, poorer, less free, European-type socialist state inhabited largely by a third world population.

Because that's what the Prez's policies are all about.

We are going over the cliff and it won't surprise me if Obama will, once again, gives away the store to the Republicans. That is plan C.

Field take some advice for once. You don't need to tell anyone about how you;

"played with a buddy of mine at a club he had joined a few weeks ago, and I had a blast. He destroyed me"

We understand those down low dog whistles and don't want to know about your private life. And please do not bare your ping pong balls.

Dear Mr. Field, thanks so much for acknowledging the perfect SAT score, Cameron Clarke achieved.

Cameron also has an IQ over 151! He joins the ranks of Alicia Banks and others as genius. To be fair, you should give AB the same acknowledgment as Cameron in your side bar. If I am not mistaken, AB has indicated her IQ to be around 250, which is the highest in the world.

Also, you might consider putting Dr Reine and Dr Queen's alter ego in your side bar for achevement in advanced degrees that only a super star in the Scientific and Medical fields could obtain. I am so proud of Dr Reine, aka Dr Queen, aka Dr Queen's alter ego, aka Flying in my 40's.... She has exhibited on your blog, FN-what a brilliant person can do if they put their mind to it....Dr Reine represents "unlimited boundless Success". How I admire her.

Some Blacks like Dr Reine, aka Dr Queen, aka Dr Queen's alter ego, aka Flying in my 40's, are natural born winners. Please put her in your sidebar for all to see and worship as the Goddess of Degrees. She deserves it. Thank you.

PS. I have often wondered if Dr Queen's IQ surpasses AB's? I bet it does. Yep. She will soon be our nation's top doctor....go Reine, go.

Queenie Queefa is an accomplished student. She ranked in 5th percentile of all students in her entire state. Something to be proud of.

"Only 4% of predominantly black Detroit's eighth-graders scored proficient or above on the most recent National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) test, sometimes called "The Nation's Report Card"
Thirty-six percent scored basic, and 57% below basic. "Below basic" is when a student is unable to demonstrate even partial mastery of knowledge and skills fundamental for proficient work at their grade level. "Basic" indicates only partial mastery. Unbeknownst to most black parents is the fact that most black students who manage to graduate from high school cannot read and compute any better than whites four years younger and still in junior high school."

Dr.Nǚwáng said...

While I'm certainly working on something that would be sidebar worthy, I first want to warn you that there are MANY more like Cameron to come, and THANK YOU for finally acknowledging the TRUTH!!

But it's not the truth you think it is, the truth that there are overachieving Blacks throughout the US, Blacks who despite the strong resurgence of racism in society most clearly demonstrated by how poorly OUR first Black president is treated, continue to surpass the lowered academic expectations dictated to them by racist elements in society!! And that makes ANY success all the more profound, though not UNcommon!!!

As for IQ scores, I'm pretty certain AB's is higher than mine and because I married a member of Mensa, my kid's is higher than mine too! Again, a Black family whose members ALL have genius level IQ's is NOT uncommon, since where you see a lot of academic achievement ( ie 7 college degrees between 2 parents), high IQ's are probably not far behind.

So as I suggested before, you should tell "your people" to prepare themselves for a NEW America, one where the face of success looks like the "melting pot" that IS America!!!!! Viva la successful Negros, LOL!!!

Where our million-man hoody marching Negroes be at, field?:

It was dawn when word spread throughout the neighborhood. People stepped outside to absorb the news and then lingered in disbelief.

Kendrick Blackmon — a 22-year-old church musician they all watched grow up — had been shot to death driving home in South Los Angeles.

Months have passed since that April morning and there is still no answer as to why an affable young man who steered clear of trouble was gunned down. Authorities say they have exhausted every lead.

The average IQ is considered 100. For children, IQ can range from 0 to 250. The majority of children tested have IQ ranges from 80 to 120. Each IQ range has a classification. According to iq-test.learninginfo.org, an IQ of 140 and greater is considered genius, 120-140 is thought of as very superior intelligence, 110-120 is considered superior intelligence, 90-110 is normal or average, 70-80 is a borderline deficiency, and below 70 is thought of as feeblemindedness.

Hey Field, what do think of President Obama announcing he is nominating a white man, John F. Kerry, for Secretary of State? Wasn't that supposed to be Susan Rice's job?

What's your opinion of how Ambassador Rice has been treated by the President? First he sends her out to tell the lies Hillary wouldn't tell, then he gets her to withdraw herself from consideration as Secretary of State in order to avoid her having to testify under oath, where she might be compelled to reveal something about Obama's role in Benghazi.

And how about that Hillary, conveniently skipping town to miss the first round of congressional hearings on the matter, then "fainting" and bumping her head to miss the second chance to testify?

Looks like Rice and a few State Department underlings are being thrown under the bus to save the President some embarassment and to keep Hillary as the front runner for 2016. What might be so important to hide? The "Lamestream Media" sure is pitching in to help the democrats here. Don't you just love the transparency?

If you had married a box of rocks, your kids would be smarter than you.

And you are right, America is just overrun with genius families, black and white. I see them every day at the airport, the mall, or just on the street. Geniuses everywhere.

And the true mark of a genius is college degrees, lots of them. Someone who spends their life earning degrees, never actually applying that knowlwdge in a career, never quite making it into medical school, but going by the honorific "doctor" just the same.

You will never be a doctor.

NO COMMENTS ON OBAMA'S ATTEMPT TO CRIPPLE SOCIAL SECURITY?

Obama’s Historic Assault on Social Security

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford

“He can accomplish what Republicans only dream about.”

President Obama and his Republican partners in austerity have choreographed a kind of bi-partisan ballet, in which the dancers reach out to each other in slow motion, their fingers almost touching, teasing the audience. These cheap and transparent theatrics are designed to transmit a soap opera-like sense of drama: “Can the two parties come to a compromise for the sake of the country?” But, the fact is, Obama and the Republicans reached most of their grand bargain more than a year ago, when they slashed $1.7 trillion out of domestic spending over a decade. As liberal Obamite Robert Kuttner, of Demos, points out, there’s very little left to cut except Medicare and Social Security.

Social Security has always been Obama’s Great White Whale; he’s conspired with Republicans and right-wing Democrats to harpoon the mother of all New Deal programs since the very start of his presidency. But Social Security is not an easy mark. George Bush found that out in his second term, when he suffered his worst domestic defeat in attempting to privatize the program.

It would take a Black Democrat, fresh from a near-landslide election, to put Social Security on the chopping block, as Obama did in January of 2009. But before he could move in for the kill, Obama and his allies had to convince the public that Social Security is a major contributor to the federal budget deficit – which is a lie. Social Security runs on its own stream of revenues that go into the Social Security Trust Fund, totally separate from general taxation and debt. However, by endless repetition of the Big Lie – that Social Security adds to the federal deficit – Obama and other corporate Democrats and Republicans succeeded in maneuvering the program into the austerity debate, where it does not belong.

“Social Security runs on its own stream of revenues.”

At this point it must be said that Obama’s insistence on making Social Security a budget deficit issue shows that he has always intended to make drastic cuts to the program. One of the reasons Social Security has long been thought of as “untouchable” is because President Franklin Roosevelt and his New Deal Democrats purposely insulated it from the conventional budget process. However, President Obama has largely neutered Social Security’s traditional congressional defenders, who know perfectly well what their president is up to, but will not directly oppose him. That’s why we at Black Agenda Report call Obama “the more effective evil”; he can accomplish what Republicans only dream about.

Obama’s scheme to cripple Social Security is to change the way inflation is measured, resulting in a drastic scale-back in cost-of-living increases in recipients. According to Dean Baker, of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, the cuts would amount to 3 percent over 10 years, 6 percent over 20 years, and 9 percent over 30 years. In dollar terms, Black Minneapolis Congressman Keith Ellison says retirees would lose [7] $6,000 in the first 15 years of cuts and $16,000 over 25 years.

And that’s just the beginning. Once the untouchability of Social Security has been breached, it becomes just another social program to be carved up on austerity chopping blocks. President Obama’s true legacy will be to have begun the destruction of the crown jewel of what’s left of the nation’s social safety net.

That's right, because the Lamestream Media memes trump the lowly little Fox News memes every time.

And besides, there is absolutely no character flaw that won't be forgiven, no despicable act that won't be swept under the rug, and no incompetence that won't be rewarded with the votes of the loyal democrat voters.
