Mayan Doomsday Rumors
Prompt Michigan Officials To
Close 33 Schools Early

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/20/2012 1:55:22 PM

More than 30 Michigan schools have closed two days early for the holidays because of a string of “rumors” running rampant throughout the neighborhoods that a) there might be violence against students; and b) the Mayan calendar predicts apocalypse on Friday morning. Detroit’s NBC affiliate WDIV reported that Lapeer Community Schools superintendent Matt Wandrie said that the doomsday “rumors” are adding to fears about gun violence resulting from last week’s massacre in Newtown, Conn. “Given the recent events in Connecticut, there have been numerous rumors circulating in our district, and in neighboring districts,

This a perfect example of the state of public education and educators. There are many fine teachers and administrators, but I think they are in the minority. The politically correct educators out number them.

We live in the west side of Michigan and my son is in High School. He said some of the kids are skipping tomorrow and their parents are taking off work because of this Mayan stuff. Really?

As I told my wife last night, I am not worried about the end of the world.

But I am worried about those who might be worried about the end of the world and what they may do.

This bandwagon hysteria by the gullible further explains how Obama got re-elected.
Too many gullible, ignorant and stupids abound.

It´s time for people to grow up and reinstate the proper education for children and send the liberal/marxist/socialist packing out of this country.

Public schools and school related activities are cancelled because of non-creditable threats and rumors?

Remember when the iconic image of an American was John Wayne?

Now it´s Caspar Milquetoast.

When a video of high school student Jeff Bliss calling out his teacher went viral, a lot of people started talking about the state of our education system and ways to improve it. However, almost a year since the video was posted, not much has changed. In fact, many would say that with the extension of Common Core curriculum across most of the country, it has actually gotten worse. Take this attempted explanation of Common Core’s approach to math: (Letter & Charts) How is this helping?

It´s not just carriage horse drivers saying neigh to plans for vintage cars tooling around Central Park. The Central Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages the city’s most famous greenspace, is coming out against a proposal backed by Mayor de Blasio to replace the horse-drawn carriages with replica old-time cars. Doug Blonsky, the conservancy’s president & CEO, told the Daily News that introducing the electric vehicles to the park would be a bad idea. “Forty million people visit Central Park each year, including runners, bicyclists, kids and dog owners,” Blonsky said Wednesday. “Adding vehicles to the mix will make the

Shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday, a 19-year-old in a hoodie and baggy jeans was captured on a grainy black-and-white surveillance video urinating into a reservoir that slakes the thirst of Portland, Ore.’s 600,000 or so residents. (Cue the disgusted “Ewwwwwwwws!” right here.) But really, Portland Water Bureau officials, do you have to flush 38 million gallons of potable water for the sake of a cup or two of human urine? That’s how much the bladder comfortably holds, although the bladder in question obviously wasn’t comfortable. We get the fact that Beervana prides itself on its water supply.

Federal Judge Overturns North
Dakota’s 6-Week Abortion Ban

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

The team behind the upcoming TV movie about convicted killer Kermit Gosnell counted on the public to help them fund their project. They said that the mainstream media and Hollywood didn´t give Gosnell´s horrific crimes the attention they deserved. The result? The most successful crowdfunding campaign in Indiegogo´s history, beating projects spearheaded by actors James Franco and Shemar Moore. Filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney credit the support of popular actors Kevin Sorbo and Nick Searcy for starring in videos promoting the project.

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

At the same Clinton Foundation-sponsored event Thursday where Chelsea Clinton announced her first pregnancy to the world, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a question from a young, 19-year-old woman who chose to publicly reveal her status as an undocumented immigrant. “That was incredibly brave,” Clinton told the woman after she shared her story. The woman, who introduced herself as Nova, got emotional as she told Clinton and the other people in attendance that she was an undocumented immigrant. Struggling through tears, she continued, “I want to say that it’s been extremely difficult for me

President Obama mocked Republican opponents of his health care law on Thursday, saying that they were going through the “stages of grief” and that critics should accept that the law is here to stay. “I recognize that their party is going through, you know, the stages of grief, right?,” said Obama during a press briefing at the White House. “Anger and denial and all that stuff and it -- we´re not at acceptance yet -- but at some point, my assumption is, is that there will be an interest to figure out how do we make this work in the

EL PASO, Texas- Questions about affairs, death and murder were all part of a fourth-grade reading assignment at Pasodale Elementary in the Lower Valley. One woman who did not want to show her face on camera told KFOX14 her son brought the assignment home because he was attending another tutoring session when his teacher passed it out. She is concerned other students completed the questions in class, so other parents could not stop them from reading it. "How is she grading it? Is she reading it? I don´t understand that," Ursula Garcia said. Garcia has a daughter in the same

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

President Obama said Thursday more than 8 million Americans selected a private health plan through his signature health overhaul, topping the most recent tally by a half-million people and offering the president an opportunity to blast Republicans for criticizing his efforts. “This thing is working,” he said, cautioning his law will not solve everything that ails the country’s health care system. He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said. Republicans say Mr. Obama’s enthusiasm is fleeting, because a portion of Americans
