ACLU to Preserve Atheism as the State Religion in America

(The following was sent by Bruce and Arlene Taber.)
“The first picture and the last picture are taken at the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the Pier. There is a veterans group that started putting a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan. The amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends.
They put up this graveyard and take it down every weekend. Guys sleep in the sand next to it and keep watch over it at night so nobody messes with it. Every cross has the name, rank, and D.O.B. and D.O.D. on it. Very moving, very powerful. So many young volunteers. So many 30 to 40 year olds as well.
Amazing!
The ACLU has filed a suit to have all military cross-shaped headstones removed.
cid:82799C1D-B3B2-42F5-A28A-6B9A0DFB699F
And that they filed another suit to end prayer from the military completely. They’re making great progress.
cid:5946E3CE-0E86-4187-90A0-5868687D9323
Keep forwarding this e-mail to others. I’m not breaking this one. I’m asking that you not break it either.
cid:7CF0644F-1625-42B0-A4D3-3A9CAB1784A0
If I get it a 1000 times, I’ll forward it a 1000 times! Prayer for our soldiers…please don’t break it! Please send this on after a short prayer. Let us pray… Prayer:
‘Heavenly Father, hold our troops in Your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in this our time of need.
These things I humbly ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, Amen.’
 

Anarchy Savages Taught Skills in High School

THE COLLEGE PROBLEM BEGINS IN HIGH SCHOOL

“Run, don’t walk, to take in Jonathan Haidt’s latest article at his splendid new siteHeterodoxAcademy about how the trouble on college campuses is inculcated at the high school level. Remember that Haidt is a liberal, but one chastened by reality.

The whole thing is worth taking in, but here is a sample about his recent experience delivering a talk at a high school in California:

[The discussion period] was the most unremittingly hostile questioning I’ve ever had. I don’t mind when people ask hard or critical questions, but I was surprised that I had misread the audience so thoroughly. My talk had little to do with gender, but the second question was “So you think rape is OK?” Like most of the questions, it was backed up by a sea of finger snaps — the sort you can hear in the infamous Yale video, where a student screams at Prof. Christakis to “be quiet” and tells him that he is “disgusting.” I had never heard the snapping before. When it happens in a large auditorium it is disconcerting. It makes you feel that you are facing an angry and unified mob — a feeling I have never had in 25 years of teaching and public speaking. . .

The Yale problem refers to an unfortunate feedback loop: Once you allow victimhood culture to spread on your campus, you can expect ever more anger from students representing victim groups, coupled with demands for a deeper institutional commitment to victimhood culture, which leads inexorably to more anger, more demands, and more commitment. But the Yale problem didn’t start at Yale.”   (please read on:)

2016…..Fascistic Islamist Obama’s Most Dangerous Year for American Freedoms

……OBAMA HAS JUST BEGUN…..by Victor Davis Hanson at the National Review:

HOW MUCH DAMAGE CAN HE DO IN HIS LAST YEAR IN OFFICE?

“Insidiously and inadvertently, Barack Obama is alienating the people and moving the country to the right. If he keeps it up, by 2017 it will be a reactionary nation. But, counterintuitive as it seems, that is fine with Obama: Après nous le déluge.

By sheer force of his personality, Obama has managed to lose the Democratic Senate and House. State legislatures and governorships are now predominantly Republican. Obama’s own favorable ratings rarely top 45 percent. In his mind, great men, whether Socrates or Jesus, were never appreciated in their time. So it is not surprising that he is not, as he presses full speed ahead. Obama certainly has doubled down going into his last year, most recently insisting on letting in more refugees from the Middle East, at a time when the children of Middle Eastern immigrants and contemporary migrants are terrorizing Europe.

What remaining unpopular executive acts might anger his opponents the most? Close down Guantanamo, let thousands more refugees into the United States, free thousands more felons, snub another ally, flatter another enemy, weigh in on another interracial melodrama, extend amnesty to another million illegal aliens, make global warming laws by fiat, expand Obamacare, unilaterally impose gun control?

In lieu of achievement, is the Obama theory to become relevant or noteworthy by offending the public and goading political enemies? An Obama press conference is now a summation of all his old damn-you clichés — the fantasy strawman arguments; the caricatures of the evil Republican bogeymen; the demagogic litany of the sick, the innocent, and the old at the mercy of his callous opponents; the affected accentuation (e.g., Talîban; Pakîstan, Îslám, Latînos, etc.) that so many autodidacts parade in lieu of learning foreign languages; the make-no-mistake-about-it and let-me-be-clear empty emphatics; the flashing temper tantrums; the mangled sports metaphors; the factual gaffes; and the monotonous I, me, my, and mine first-person-pronoun exhaustion. What Obama cannot do in fact, he believes he can still accomplish through invective and derision.

The Miracle of Squantos Path to Plymouth

The human is a thinking animal….”There is neither good nor bad” primitive man, not woman,  discovered…….”Only thinking makes it so”,

I have been a long time  believer of the concept “what is”  in Life was and is forever meant to be as it is actually played out in life.  Fortunately, we mortals are made unaware of our fated todays and tomorrows.

As we live and breath we absorb experience and knowledge, we seek understanding, we enter the wars of right against wrong….we are programmed to procreate our being regardless of success or failure.

The human male is burdened and blessed with the mysteries of exposing the unknown to protect his kind……to cause human life’s tomorrow…..the human female is burdened and blessed to carry  and nurture  the beginnings of tomorrow’s beings.

All living matter seems to  have its fate predestined according to a power of order forever beyond human understanding.   But Life is not perfect.   Mistakes occur without which Life could never cause change.

The “what is” cannot be known until it is, that is, occurs and is discovered, and even then cannot be understood beyond what it seems to be.

“What is life?” was a frequent topic I and a few friends….boys, not girls, frequently probed  when in grade school perhaps prompted by the business of World War so pressing at that time.

For some reason forever unknown, the fate of Plymouth Colony was decided by the unknown for reasons forever unknown,  to succeed…..The known biography of  Squantos is just another example of the mysteries of history which forever change our human tomorrows.

Yesterday, Dennis interviewed the article’s author, Eric Metaxas,  (more accurately gave Mr. Metaxas nearly full command of the microphone for an hour)   to share his enthusiasm about this Squanto story with his radio audience.  (by ghr.)

The Miracle of Squanto’s Path to Plymouth

The Thanksgiving tale of the Pilgrims and the Indian has an astonishing, less well-known back story.

The Miracle of Squanto’s Path to Plymouth

Republican Establishment Still at Sea Regarding the Donald

The  Conservative establishment from Republican Headquarters throughout Fox “News” and points beyond in the Press, just don’t know what to do with the Donald.    Why won’t he go away?   Why can’t we make him go away?    Why haven’t our stars from the stars, similarly clever speakers all,  Rubio, Cruz, Kasich, Bush, Christie, and  Carly sent him to the showers by now?

The Donald doesn’t speak the languages permitted by the “laws”  of leftist established and Republican approved,  political correctness’ rules of speech control dictated at university and practiced, nurtured  by the nation’s leftist press industry.

There is nothing in the Constitution that requires revealing a detailed “Marshall Plan” for the tribes of eastern New Guinea for leftist press consumption as a qualification for running for the American presidency.   Why can’t the public know the Donald for his generalizations?…..which seem quite reasonable, despite occasional  expletives some even inspiring  at times!

Keep the establishment  blabbers at Fox  guessing if we must!   Isn’t selling combat how  they make most of  their money on in the first place?   Why should any television industry left, right or center, dictate the peoples’  politics and speech for public showing?

That the Donald doesn’t cow to salemanship crews  at Fox,   that he isn’t a traditional mouthful politician, or a liar on all fronts ala Hillary, or a Republican  taking election lessons from traditional losers at National Republican Party Headquarters, gives this man a chance to send a powerful   welcomed wind of fresh air over our America from coast to coast to stir a grand  happening.  Donald Trump does have  personality with an obvious love for and worry about the country Obama, Hillary and their followers are corrupting.

Donald’s independence makes  all other Republican candidates seem, behave childlike in their performances.  Bush and Kasich sell ads of  great noise  bellowing, barking as if angered by being denied chewing gum.   Cruz and Rubio verbalize their messages cautiously, correctly,  meaningfully, bureaucratically, traditionally, boringly  ever using  the language of political correctness, the language designed and controlled  by the leftist  press itself.

The author of the following article, “A Theory of Trump’s Outrageousness”, Byron York, has  NEVER been an ally of Mr. Trump.   On the contrary,  immediately upon the Donald’s entry into the political fray,  York along with all others but one at Fox dismissed him as  fly in the conservative ointment, an insult to America’s integrity rather than a convert to the Republican way of life. (The Donald has never actually run for political office.)

Mr. Trump doesn’t speak Yorkspeak. He doesn’t cruise like Cruz.  He is NOT Byron York, and I suppose he prefers NOT to be York’s clone at Fox.   Nor would I “for all of the tea in China”….yet York is usually a responsible conservative….but a very narrow and apparently confused one.

Go, Donald, go!!!!   Conservatives  need you and others like you to help them  discover freedom and responsibility  in  America again.   Hit the universities next!
