World police goons!

by

I do believe we are being trained to a world police. A police state that can operate at will on foreign soil and yes domestically. The new force receives little bad press from the international community. Why? It is not coming under attack domestically.

There is no doubt that evil Islamist are operating throughout the world. We know they exist on our continent. They seem to be multiplying daily in numbers. Affiliations to this umbrella group or the other are blurred. Me well I just view them all as Islamist terrorist.

One less evil Islamist and the world breathes a sigh of relief. We certainly would most likely say “one less radical Islamist to worry about!”.

The fact that an evil Islamist is walking around in a country, not ours, is that an excuse for the USA to extract or use a Drone to kill?

When the USA drone kills or extracts some evil Islamic that our government says masterminded this or that or responsible for deaths of Americans its easy to say “go after the bastards Uncle Sam”.

Recently it was reported that Navy Seals were thwarted at their attempts to extract terrorist in Somalia. This was a police action. Truth is we don’t really know if they were actually Seals. Could the group been contract mercenaries hired by DOD?

Civil War: We are still paying the price . . .

by

Shelby Foote [1] in an interview with the Academy of Achievement said “This country has two great sins on its very soul. One is slavery, which we’ll never get out of our history and our conscience and everything else, the marrow of our bones. The other one is emancipation. They told four million people, “You are free. Hit the road.” Two-thirds of them couldn’t read or write. Very few of them had any trade except farming, and they went back into a sharecropper system that closely resembled peonage. I’m not saying emancipation is a sin, for God’s sakes, and I’m not saying there shouldn’t have been emancipation, but it should have been an emancipation that brought those people into society without all these handicaps on their head. And that now, my black friends, they are tremendously protective about slavery. They don’t want to hear the word. The opposite of the Jews, who are very proud of coming out of Egypt. And it was this short-circuiting, of instant emancipation, that certainly was a good thing, but it had a very bad effect on them.”

Frightening new assault on homeschooling

by

Among major democratic nations, homeschooling already is banned in Germany, under a Hitler-era law, and in Sweden, where authorities have taken offspring out of their family’s arms to crack down on the educational method.

Scotland is taking a different approach, demanding that all children be assigned a “nanny” at birth to make sure they get educated.

Now officials in the Netherlands are looking to join the crackdown on parents.

According to a petition being promoted by a group of homeschooling parents there, the Dutch Parliament as recently as 2011 “agreed with home education” and the Dutch Education Council advised only that home education should be regulated.

Nevertheless, Sander Dekker, secretary of state for education in the country, told the Dutch House of Representatives that he plans to make it illegal nationwide.

The homeschool organization, Nederlandse Vereniging voor Thuisonderwijs, now is asking parents nationwide, and indeed, worldwide, to sign the petition that calls for “the preservation and strengthening of the legal basis for home education.”

The petition explains, “The state secretary for education is planning to make it impossible to home educate (via exemption from compulsory school attendance under article 5 sub b of the Compulsory Education Act). This is evident from his letter in July 2013 to the Second Chamber (House of Representatives) of the Dutch Parliament.”

Parents, Students, Teachers Lose If Common Core Wins

by

If not for the cloak of secrecy, by now you would have heard about the Common Core State Standards Initiative—the federal government’s drive to replace existing state education standards and to nationalize K-12 curriculum, testing and assessments across all 50 states and 55 million-plus students.

Republican and Democrat administrations are both responsible for Common Core, which grew out of George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind (NCLB) legislation and Barack Obama’s Race to the Top, an expansion of NCLB. To date, 45 states have accepted most or all of the content standards in exchange for increased federal education funding to their cash-strapped budgets. But as the public has become aware of this federal takeover of education and are demanding more information, states are having to answer to growing concerns:

Education by Stealth and Deception – Why the Secrecy Behind Common Core?

by

Slowly, a few more parents across our nation are beginning to hear about Common Core, the new education program that seeks to “reform education” and supposedly make their children’s learning experience more “robust” and “rigorous.” Parents are being told that their children will be better able to use “critical thinking” and “higher order thinking skills” [whatever that is] and will be “better prepared for college and careers.”

Forty-six governors supposedly “voluntarily” signed onto Common Core two years ago in August of 2010. Could it be that the governors did not volunteer, but were actually coerced to sign on with a bribe of winning part of $4.35 billion, with a waiver to get out of the rigorous requirements of the old Bush program “No Child Left Behind,” and with a threat that if they did not sign on, they might lose their “Title One” money that helps with the funding of poverty stricken children.

You can’t hold it for hours so how do you pee during a filibuster?

by

“This morning, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that, according to Joel Burns, who holds Sen. Davis’ former Fort Worth City Council seat, Davis was equipped with a catheter during her filibuster. When contacted to confirm, Davis’ office responded that the senator “made all necessary preparations.”

While obsessively watching state Sen. Wendy Davis’ heroic filibuster in the Texas Legislature yesterday, I couldn’t help thinking the obvious: 13 hours without peeing is a long time. Was she just holding it? Or wearing some sort of, er, contraption? (The options on such things, by the way, are many.)

For the most part, the logistics on this tend to be something politicians keep mum about. “It’s a kind of urological mystery,” Joseph Crespino, biographer of legendary filibusterer Strom Thurmond, told the BBC last year.

Monsanto Provides Seed Money to Congress

by

Now the ugly news:

“The Monsanto Company Citizenship Fund has given out $236,500 in 2013, with 69 percent going to Republicans. In August, the PAC reported it gave $7,000 to Rep. Stephen Fincher, R-Tenn., a member of the House Agriculture Committee; $2,500 to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va.; $2,000 to Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill.; $2,000 to Rep. Collin C. Peterson, D-Minn., ranking member of the House Agriculture Committee; among others.

In the full 2011-2012 cycle the PAC reported it gave out $468,500 to federal candidates and committees, with 70 percent going to Republicans. The PAC gave its most money to the campaign committees of members of the Senate Agriculture Committee ($65,500), and the House Agriculture Committee ($64,500).

Politicians: It’s time to swat some flies!

by

Today Conservatives tend to be libertarian on most economic issues, and true liberals tend to be libertarian on most social issues. Libertarians call for a foreign policy of peace as described by Thomas Jefferson: “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations – entangling alliances with none.” Neither party on Capitol Hill, for decades, act from the Libertarians value on foreign policy, peace and darn it limited government.

We haven’t discovered if a Republican-Libertarian would be true to their convictions if elected the Grand Poo-bah of the nation. I think the time has come to find out.

Most people I know hate politics with good reasons. We dislike politics in the workplace and among friends. It seems the only people who like politics is the professional politician (lobbying firms and lawyers). Unfortunately it is a necessary institution and one that for good or bad reason we are stuck with. President George Washington warned us . . .

I apologize that this is a overly lengthy commentary. It represents what was on my mind and I have never been able to control the thoughts in my head unless I jot them down. This is me jotting a brain dump.

It is a little history accompanied by my on thoughts.

“Peace Be Upon You” says the Religion of Peace to the World (Part 1)

by

Not sure if I need to say anything about this, Islam pretty much speaks for itself so all you have to do is separate the pretty words from sick evil actions this so called Religion of Peace does every single day around the world. Our government under Hussein Obama II is shoving Islam down our throat from every direction, public schools, public service announcements and 20 other ways.

This post is a composite of several posts to paint a picture for you, yet some would call me Islamophobic or something stupid like that and feel I do not know what a “Moderate Muslim” is. But yes I do know what a moderate Muslim is, those that live here in America with you and I that everyone feels so sorry for because they are so misunderstood and cry us a river about how they are good Americans and love this Republic. And that Islam is a wonderful peaceful way of life, only a few bad Muslims are giving them a bad name. Just go through this and see what ya think about Islam, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
