Second-grade student says teacher confiscated her Bible during reading time

SchoolThe question of what is appropriate reading for school and what is not is in the news again. At issue is not Common Core-approved stories like Sherman Alexie’s “Every Little Hurricane, which contains the line “You ain’t sh*t, you f**king apple.” Rather, it is the Holy Bible.

Houston station KHOU reports (h/t the Right Scoop) that a second-grade student at Hamilton Elementary has said that during a “read to myself” time two weeks ago, she was told by her teacher that the Good Book is not a good choice for in-school reading and that the teacher then confiscated the book.

School worksheet asks students to ID father of illegitimate child

School WorldYou can at least take comfort from the fact that the questions are part of an assignment designated for students taking honors biology. Because only about a fifth of all students qualify for honors courses according to national estimates, most young impressionable minds will be spared.

Those who won’t and whose teachers download a certain genetics worksheet from the website School World will come face to face with Punnett square problems that ask them about the probable fathers of babies born out of wedlock.

Try swallowing this ObamaCare pill

As many of you know, last week my dear friend Dori was laid to rest after her 16- month battle with brain cancer…and you know of her family’s battles through the nightmare of the health care fiasco known as ObamaCare. The battle is over for Dori but it has just begun for the rest of us.

And that battle begins with us knowing that ObamaCare is a LIE…NO other way to say it. It is NOT health care nor is it affordable as its actual name…The Affordable Care Act (ACA)…claims it to be. ObamaCare from its inception to its roll out to its subsequent implementation is NOTHING but one big scam to ‘insure’, if you will, the ‘sponges’ of our society so they stay in the voting pocket of the Democratic party and NOTHING else.

Obama loves to claim that to date more than eight million Americans have signed up for health insurance through the exchanges, but the truth is more like eight million Americans have perused the Healthcare.gov website and put something into their shopping cart, but have NOT paid that all-important first premium…thus denying the program the dollars needed to keep ObamaCare afloat. And Obama knew this would happen for he knows…and has always known…ObamaCare’s inherent flaws.

Controversial Easter ad shows Jesus holding a lit joint and a sandwich

Jesus burger adIt’s hard to pick out the single most offensive thing about an ad run by a Seattle restaurant on Easter Sunday to promote its so-called “Burger of the Gods.” Is it the speech bubble that has the Jesus saying, “When I get back, all I want is the burger of the gods”? Or is the fact that the Son of God is holding a lit blunt, which is presumably intended to answer the question “What would Jesus smoke?”

According to Seattle station KOMO, the explanation for the joint offered up John Schmidt, owner of Lunchbox Laboratory, is that Easter Sunday this year fell on April 20, or 4/20. In pop culture, “420” is a term for smoking marijuana. As for the burger Jesus is gazing at adoringly in the cartoonlike ad? Says Schmidt in the video report here:

This is not about Jesus; it’s about the burger of the gods. It’s an actual burger that we have.

“Drill Baby Drill”…or should I say “Build Baby Build”

“You stand on the brink of making a choice that will define your legacy on one of the greatest challenges humanity has ever faced — climate change…” - Former President Jimmy Carter

Well leave it to the second worst president in U.S. history to suck up to the worst president in U.S. history as last week Jimmy Carter, together with a group of nine Nobel Peace Laureates… including South Africa’s Desmond Tutu…sent a single letter through the Nobel Women’s Initiative to both Obama and John ‘Swiftboat’ Kerry urging them to reject the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline… TransCanada’s long-delayed $5.5-billion project…on the grounds that it would add to climate change concerns and other environmental issues.

But the truth is that the pipeline would NOT negatively affect anything…for it would NOT contribute to greenhouse gasses nor would it contribute to global warning simply because there is NO such thing. (So-called global warming and global cooling are naturally occurring weather cycles that have occurred since the Earth began and will continue until the Earth is NO more.)  Continue reading

Obama’s boasts about lower health care costs under ACA shot down by NYT?

Obama-presser-620x400“The truth will out.” Even a liberal rag like the New York Times will suffer a pang of conscience every now and then that forces them to publish the facts in place of left-leaning opinion, if only for a fleeting moment.

One such moment occurred on Friday, the day after Barack Obama’s most recent end zone dance during which he boasted:

In the decade before the Affordable Care Act, employer-based insurance rose almost 8 percent a year.  Last year, it grew at half that rate.

Under this law, real Medicare costs per person have nearly stopped growing….

So those savings add up to more money that families can spend at businesses, more money that businesses can spend hiring new workers.

Teacher fired for allegedly telling student ‘we don’t need another black president’

Gil Voigt’Here is a story that should be interesting to watch. It touches on so many hot button issues — from freedom of speech to racial insensitivity to the role of a teacher — that newspapers that have covered it can’t agree on a headline. The Associated Press titles their version of the story “Ohio teacher fired over comment on black president.” The Cincinnati Enquirer opts for “Fairfield teacher accused of racial slur loses job.”

Here are the broad outlines: Last December, a student in Gil Voigt’s freshman science class said he had aspirations to become president. According to the student, Voigt told him the nation didn’t need another black commander in chief. On Thursday, Voigt was terminated by the Fairfield Board of Education in a unanimous vote. Voigt said on Friday that he plans to appeal the ruling with the Butler County Court of Appeals.

Yellow stars and ghosts that haunt…players in a modern day revolution

letter telling jews to register“We’re hoping it’s just a provocation but I always thought the days that Jews would become scapegoats for whatever reason were long over.”
- Yosef Gurevitz, saw one of the letters telling Jews to register

In the months since Ukraine’s pro-Moscow government of President Viktor Yanukovych was overthrown, accusations of fascism and anti-Semitism from both the pro-Russia and pro-Ukraine sides have been surfacing and have Vladimir Putin worried about the rising tones of hatred against Jews in the region. And now as shadows of the Holocaust…a nightmare straight from the bowels of hell…seem to be resurrecting again…Jews in Donetsk, Ukraine…over 16 years of age…are being told via letter to pay a fee of $50 U.S., provide a list of property they own, and register as Jews with the pro-Russian separatists or face loss of citizenship or expulsion.

Today, only about 70,000 remain of a once thriving two million plus Jewish community and the ghosts have now returned to haunt…the ghosts of the 1.5 million Ukrainian Jews who were exterminated between 1941 and 1945, when most Ukrainians either outright cooperated with the Nazis or simply looked away.

The Jewish people did NOT kill Jesus

the jews did not kill jesusAs we enter the Easter and Passover season some Christian sects will once again bring up the old hatreds that the Jewish people killed Jesus, when nothing could be further from the truth. Before you discount this, please read what I have to say.

Simply, the Jews did NOT kill Jesus as it was the Romans that had him crucified and caused his mortal death. Pope Benedict XVI completely absolved and publicly apologized for wrongly charging the Jews with the death of Jesus, and most contemporary Christian theologians acknowledge that the Jews could NOT possibly have influenced the all-powerful Romans into killing Jesus.

The lie that the Jews had Jesus put to death or had any part in his death has been spread ever since the time of the Romans, and has caused more harm to the Jewish people over the centuries than almost anything else, and still does so by anti-Semitic bigots who continue to perpetrate this lie.

Obama spikes football on Obamacare (again), but he will lose on the review?

Obama presserThere is no need to rehearse the many problems that continue to plague Obamacare and make it a gift to Republicans and a curse to vulnerable red-state Senate Democrats as the days to the midterm elections tick down. In fact, President Obama himself said as much yesterday when he made a rare appearance in front of the White House press corps and smugly announced that “this thing is working.”

In the video, from Politico he says, beginning at around 2:55:

We’ve been having a political fight about this for five years. We need to move on to something else. That’s what the American people are interested in.
