An Advanced Placement World Geography teacher at a Texas high school who encouraged students to dress in Islamic clothing also instructed them to refer to the 9-11 hijackers not as terrorists – but as “freedom fighters,” according to students who were in the class.
tudents at Lumberton High School were also told to stop referring to the Holocaust as Genocide – instead they were told to use the term “ethnic cleansing.”
This was all reported to FOX news. What do you think about this?
You are right,..
“Why not a good grades college fund?” I love that quote…
Amen! Isn’t that the..
And yes this is where I agree, It is not that I don’t want gays to love each other, That is not it. I just don’t think a marriage (church issue) Should be dealt federally by the government. I do also believe that civil union should be revised and re written to where they get virtually the same deals as marriage couples. Then you might ask then why not call it marriage. Well quite frankly that’s comparing oranges and apples.
Thanks for the question!
Sadly I cant think of the exact post you referring too, however I can extend on what you said. You right in the sense that everybody is born equal. We all have the same inalienable rights as our neighbors and government or anyone else should not and CANT take that away from us. That is a very conservative way of thinking. Margret Thatcher once said “We’re all unequal. No-one, thank heavens, is quite like anyone else, however much the socialists pretend otherwise. And we believe that everyone has the right to be unequal. But to us every human being is equally important.” Freedom is not synonymous with an easy life. … There are many difficult things about freedom: It does not give you safety, it creates moral dilemmas for you; it requires self-discipline; it imposes great responsibilities; but such is the nature of life.
Now lets not throw around that word “Right” around. Marriage is not a right. Like me and true conservatives, things like this should not be held at the federal government level (first) I do Bellevue its a states issue. That is truly the true conservative way. Because like I said earlier, all humans are equally important and all people should be able to voice there opinion in a state wide election. Have the PEOPLES voices heard. Let me tell you, I will fight for my view but I will respect yours and I wont ever federally impose you to believe in the way I do. Mandates are unconstitutional (Obamacare anyone..) The true way to get things done like this is to have the people decide and then go through an amendment process if and only if enough people are in favor for a certain position.. The true constitutional way to solve this dispute. The true CONSERVATIVE way to solve this dispute.
A leaked secret Justice Department “white paper” detailing the Obama administration’s legal justification for the targeted drone assassinations of Americans living abroad made its way onto the Internet late Monday evening.
The longer document was written in 2010 to justify the addition of al-Qaida member Anwar al-Aulaqi, a U.S. citizen, to Obama’s secretive “kill list.”
The white paper suggests that the federal government has legal recourse to engage in the extrajudicial assassination of an American citizen, reported NBC News, if “an informed, high-level official” has determined that the American is a “continuing” threat to the country.
The individual would be determined a “continuing” threat if he were “”recently” involved in “activities” posing a threat of a violent attack, and “there is no evidence suggesting that he has renounced or abandoned such activities,” according to the news outlet, which obtained and published the paper. “The memo does not define “recently” or “activities,” according to NBC News.
initial reaction is that the paper only underscores the irresponsible extravagance of the government’s central claim. Even if the Obama administration is “convinced” of its own fundamental trustworthiness, the power this white paper sets out will be available to every future president—and every ‘informed high-level official’ (!)—in every future conflict
If you guys have any idea’s let me know. I really would love to be able to just talk about politics and current events as a job! And like I said, I have some great ideas.
