“What’s at risk [in 100 years] if we do not take action, truly is the survival of civilization as we know it… Literally that is the case. We have seen global warming so far of just a little bit less than one degree Celsius and look at what’s happened. Superstorm Sandy. Boulder Colorado. All these fires. Hurricane Irene one year before.” [You don’t have to be a scientist to know that Gore is blowing enough hot air to single-handedly melt the polar ice caps…]
“A Toledo woman held an intruder at gunpoint after catching him on her
property. And this isn’t the first time it’s happened. It’s the second
time in six months Betty Collins has pulled a gun on a suspect. She
says protecting her family and property is her priority….”

A Wisconsin middle school in the Hudson School District played the pro-Obama “I Pledge” video as part of their Peace One Day event. The video features brainless celebrities pledging allegiance to Barack Obama. For example, rock singer Anthony Kiedis says “I pledge to be of service to Barack Obama”, while actress Demi Moore proclaims “I pledge to be a servant to our president.” It is mind-boggling that anybody would make such idiotic pledges, and it is outrageous that supposedly intelligent school administrators would suppose for even one second that showing such brazen outlandish political propaganda in school would ever be appropriate. Such crap is reminiscent of Nazi Germany and Stalin’s USSR, and is contrary to every ideal that founded and made America great.

It took exactly one week for nearly 300 students at Roosevelt High School to hack through security so they could surf the Web on their new school-issued iPads, raising new concerns about a plan to distribute the devices to all students in the district….
Once again, government proves its incompetence when it comes to… well, anything at all. You want inefficiency? Implementation problems? Waste? Loads of unintended consequences? Then let the government do it. As Ronald Reagan once said, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.'”

Students at a Southaven, Miss. middle school were educated in the ‘Big Pimpin’ thug life of Jay-Z, and the school district can’t imagine why anyone would object to lessons on reading, writing and rapping….
Who in their right mind presents as a role model to children a crude, profane man who glorifies prostitution, gangs and thuggery?
“A suspected car thief who was in the middle of breaking into a pickup truck was shot and killed by the truck’s owner…. As the man then began breaking into a pickup truck, the truck’s owner came out to walk his dog and confronted the thief, according to investigators. Guns were drawn, and several shots were fired…. [The thief’s] accomplice was arrested and police say she had a felony warrant for burglary….”
“A former marine emerged as a hero of the Nairobi siege yesterday after he was credited with saving up to 100 lives. The ex soldier was having coffee at the Westgate mall when it was attacked by Islamists on Saturday. With a gun tucked into his waistband, he was pictured helping two women from the complex…. The former soldier is said to have returned to the building on a dozen occasions, despite intense gunfire….”

Robert Small said he wanted to express his dismay over the introduction of a new school curriculum at a public forum Thursday night in Towson, but instead the Ellicott City parent was pulled out of the meeting, arrested and charged with second-degree assault of a police officer….
Assault of a police officer???? Outrageous. Watch the video. Mr. Small did nothing even remotely close to assault, never mind that the brute who “arrested him” was an off-duty officer working as a security guard. As he was led out, Mr. Small cried out to the other people, “Don’t stand for this. You are sitting here like cattle. Is this America?” Good question. Where is the courage of people to stand against tyranny? Today’s America is a mere remnant of the America that defeated Nazism, and even of the more recent America that won — yes WON — the Cold War. We are afraid. Afraid of the police state that our behemoth government is shackling us with.
But I guess 27 words was a bit much to publish in a 1,360 page United States history textbook, so the authors and editors felt compelled to cut it down to 15 words. Maybe that would be okay, if only they hadn’t made the lying leftist decision to blatantly disregard the true interpretation of the Second Amendment. [ref, ref]
“Leaked documents obtained by The Associated Press show there are deep concerns among governments over how to address the issue ahead of next week’s meeting of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change….. Several governments that reviewed the draft objected to how the issue was tackled, in comments to the IPCC obtained by the AP. Germany called for the reference to the slowdown to be deleted, saying a time span of 10-15 years was misleading in the context of climate change, which is measured over decades and centuries….”
