Donald Trump: “I love the Mexican people. I love Mexico.”

Donald Trump: “I love the Mexican people. I love Mexico.”

On June 25, Donald Trump was quoted in an interview on Noticiero Telemundo stating: “I love the Mexican people. I love Mexico. I’ve had tremendous relationships with Mexico for many many years, and frankly that’s very important to me.” This seems to be Donald Trump’s clearly stated position and view regarding the Mexican people. Unfortunately, this statement of his didn’t make it into the mainstream media, because news reporters, journalists, and the public were obsessing over a misquoted, out of context, and misinterpreted statement that Trump made a week earlier. On June 16, Donald Trump made the following comments about a small subset of undocumented ‘illegal’ Mexican immigrants: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. [Pointing to people in the crowd as an example.] They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” A video clip of Trump’s speech that aired on the Daily Show, was edited to depict Trump saying: “When Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best… They’re rapists, and some I assume are good people.” (source @ 7:08) That modified video clip was played repeatedly. Other media outlets did the same thing in misreporting Trump’s words. The Daily Beast referred to Trump’s words as “the ‘Mexicans are rapists’ comments.'” So, Trump’s statement was ultimately conveyed by the media and heard by the public as: “Donal Trump thinks all Mexican immigrants are drug dealers, murderers, criminals, and rapists.” That’s obviously not what Trump was saying. He is saying that people who...
This is why free college education actually costs society nothing.

This is why free college education actually costs society nothing.

Recently I posted a story on Facebook about a program started in Tennessee that provides free community college education to all residents. Over 35,000 students have already applied for the program, and more will apply again this year. One of my conservative Republican friends promptly posted the comment, “Who actually pays for it?” which was to suggest that nothing is free and ultimately we as tax payers will pay for others to get an education. The topic of free community college has been in the news lately. On 8 January 2015, Barack Obama announced his goal to provide free college education. This was a major topic in his State of the Union speech. More recently, Bernie Sanders has introduced legislation to make college and university education free. So, in recent months, conservative Republicans have developed a knee-jerk reaction against any suggestion of free higher education, presuming such proposals are a form of socialism. What liberals and conservatives forget is that it was the conservative Republican governor, Bill Haslam, who in 2014 initiated and implemented a free community college program in Tennessee. So, meanwhile, as Tennessee gets smarter and wealthier, we’re all still arguing about the feasibility of free public education. Eppie Lederer (Ann Landers) is attributed with saying, “If you think education is expensive, try ignorance” — presumably she meant that an uneducated society is very expensive to maintain and govern. Unemployment, poverty, crime, and incarceration are costly. To my friend who asked about the cost of education, I explained it this way. Investing in education is sort of like Tax Increment Financing (TIF). The state makes a relatively small investment up front, and...

Burka Avenger: “Justice, peace and education for all!”

Burka Avenger: “Justice, peace and education for all!”

In this new animated adventure series, a young Muslim woman with superpowers becomes “Burka Avenger.” Explaining her mission, she states, “Now, I use my powers for good. I stand for justice, peace and education for all. I fight against the forces of tyranny and ignorance… because I am Burka Avenger!” Al Jazeera says Burka Avenger is “Like no other superhero before her.” With English subtitles, you can practice your Hindi while enjoying this award winning action animation. Originally broadcast in Urdu, the Indian version will be dubbed in English, Hindi, Telugu and Tamil, in order to maximize its reach. She is perhaps the first superhero fighting to promote education for all, but we have some real life Muslim women on a similar mission. In 2009, Queen Rania of Jordan launched 1GOAL and proclaimed that she wants to provide education for every child on the planet. Queen Rania is not alone. Others, like Malala Yousafzai are also actively campaigning for equal access to education. Below are two episodes from the series. Visit Burka Avenger on Facebook or BurkaAvenger.com. Episode 1 – Burka Avenger Prevents a School Closing The first episode of the Burka Avenger, Season 01. In this episode Vadero Pajero and Baba Bandook conspire to shut down the girls school. Burka Avenger comes to the rescue and saves the day. Episode 2 – Burka Avenger Fights Polio Evil Baba Bandook kidnaps the polio health worker and steals the polio vaccines and hides them in the mammoth clock tower with the help of his giant robot (Roobot Zalminator).
