I guess if I were surrounded by Secret Service agents and had the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines at my command , I wouldn't worry about terrorism either

"Krauthammer: Obama Believes People Afraid of Terror Because They Aren’t As ‘Intelligent’ As He Is".

Ignorant, quarter-educated, narcissistic, puffed up, parlor radical..."only" a little more than a year to go.

Obama's opinion of Americans has been pretty consistently contemptuous from the beginning. It's only the True Believers who took this long to see it.

I grew up imbibing the Dobie Gillis show (playing bongos and wanting to marry Zelda). I watched the growth of mass education post WWII in which the US led the world, but the result, the constant "I'm more educated than you" snarking, reminds me of Wizard of Oz:

"Why, anybody can have a brain. That's a very mediocre commodity. Every pusillanimous creature that crawls on the Earth or slinks through slimy seas has a brain. Back where I come from, we have universities, seats of great learning, where men go to become great thinkers. And when they come out, they think deep thoughts and with no more brains than you have! But they have one thing you haven't got - a diploma."

(And I've got one of those 4 year high Hons Diplomas myself fwiw).

Loved Dobie Gillis!

The reference to the Wizard's comments is spot on.

The victim's in Paris and San Bernardino weren't afraid...until the shooting started

Bruce, the Wizard of OZ quote is spot on! But the mere obtainment of a diploma is not enough. Critical thinking is key, and that is something that no wizard can dispense. I loved Dobie Gillis. Maynard (Bob Denver) was my favorite. It was sad to find out that Sheila James Kuehl (Zelda) is a Lefty Lesbian. She held office in southern California. She didn't meet the Wizard. Your
