Arne Duncan: ´We Have Common
Values That Go Far Beyond the
Constitutional Right to Bear Arms´

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/27/2012 11:06:58 AM

Americans value their children, their safety, and the right to pursue their dreams without fear -- and those "common values" trump the rights set forth in the U.S. Constitution, Education Secretary Arne Duncan said last Friday in a speech at a Washington, D.C., elementary school. In the coming weeks, Duncan said he plans to spend a lot of time visiting schools and communities -- to talk about gun violence: "I want to talk to gun owners and hunters and sport shooters and ask them, what should we do? I want to talk about community and responsibility,

Comments:
Be very afraid! We have the most dangerous regime ever occupying the White House. Give them an inch and they will take a mile and more. The morons who voted them in have no idea what they are capable of and just don´t care, as long as they get their freebies.

Feinstein has officially declared war on the Second Amendment. She is going to introduce an "assault weapons" ban that will include handguns...it´s coming....hope ya´ll are ready..never thought in my lifetime I would see Americans openly embrace communism, socialism all for a cell phone, govt. check and no pride. What should be just an embarrassing situation just took a hard left turn to dangerous waters of treason, the taking of liberty and freedom and the intentional undermining of the Constitution of the United States of America by those sworn to uphold it.

So many people are so stupid or just evil not sure which. The U.S. Constitution protects the "common values", without the 2nd the "common values" would only be the Government´s values which are the same as Obama´s and nothing like the "common values" of Americians.

A prime example of government ´listening´ - rhetorical questions.

Why doesn´t government actually listen to doctors, coal miners, petroleum engineers or other experts on other crucial matters?

"Common values trump the rights set forth in the US Constitution" Reeducation Minister Duncan.

From Duncan´s comment on the 2nd Amendment, we can be sure that Obama´s values will trump these as well:

The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights. The amendment prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.

The hard action will come the day after NØbama finally gets to flip one conservative Supreme Court justice.

Once the lie-berals have a majority on the Supreme Court, the Constitution will officially be dead.

For now, lie-berals like Feinstein are just laying the groundwork for massive mandatory gun collections.

I had a very interesting Christmas dinner with my cousins. Both are in law enforcement and both served in the military.

They both pointed out very clearly if the gov´t decides that want to the police to do house to house searches they better start thinking again. Most police officers 1) don´t want to get shot 2) don´t like being out gunned 3) don´t trust the gov´t.

Its going to be interesting.

50,000,000 dollars went to the chigago school district in 2009, using the stimulus funds, to mentor those students at highest risk of being shot.
That would be the gangbangers.
And the money paid for mentors, 24/7.
How did that work out, Arne?

#16 is correct and Arne Duncan is wrong. We do not have ANY common values anymore. That is the root of all of our problems. Conservatives need to stop thinking that this country still has a set of common values.

Don´t be afraid, be angry. Fear is for the unknowing. Be angry that he wants to bring the best of the Chicago Public School system to the rest of the country. You´ll get security officers (moonlighting off duty police officers), on duty police officers, metal detectors and lots of indoctrination. But your children won´t get educated. Or rather, they will be educated but they will become less knowledgeable unless you watch out. The teachers do as they´re told and teach only what they´re told to teach. The good government workers with their fat new contract that they are. Welcome to the second term...

As for the rest of us, look up the "Oath Keepers" and if eligible, please join.

NØbama knows darn well that neither the military or the police would have anything to do with forcing law abiding citizens to give up their guns (as #15 pointed out very well).

But that is all the excuse that NØbama will need to form his Brown Shirt Militia -- made up of former New Black Panther, La Raza and union thugs. They will be outfitted with the best body armor and highest tech weapons that our tax dollars can afford. They will go in groups of 25 or more, crash in through doors and windows, hold your wife and kids at gun point, and give you one minute to turn over every weapon and piece of ammo that you own.

If they have to blow away a few Anglo women and children to make a point, well that is just part of their duty to get all those newly illegal weapons off the streets.

I only wish I was exagerating or that this was some kind of nightmare...

Ever heard of the U.S. Supreme Court´s Plessy v Ferguson ruling in 1896? That´s the one where the guys in the black robes upheld "separate but equal" *accommodations on public facilities like trains.

Union organizers are showing up at Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) inspections of an open-shop business that has been targeted by the country’s second-largest union. Professional Janitorial Service (PJS), the largest non-union janitorial company in Houston, and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) haven’t gotten along for seven years. The company is currently suing SEIU for $9 million, alleging that the union has repeatedly slandered it. But on three recent occasions, SEIU representatives accompanied federal safety inspectors to examine PJS cleaning sites, says Evelyn Meza, the human-resources manager for PJS.

President Barack Obama´s healthcare law may have been responsible for pushing whites to vote Republican and polarizing the country at historic levels, according to a new Gallup analysis. On the four-year anniversary of Obamacare, the implication of the Gallup study is that Obama´s policies--not his race or personality--have been the impetus for the increasing level of racial polarization. The Gallup study found that in 2010, "nonwhites´ net party identification and leanings showed a 49-point Democratic advantage, and whites were 12 percentage points more Republican than Democratic." That "resulting 61-point racial and ethnic gap in party preferences is the largest Gallup has measured

A 1-square-mile mudslide struck Saturday morning in Snohomish County, critically injuring several people and destroying about 30 several homes. Eight bodies have been pulled from the scene and authorities described the search for additional survivors to be "grim."

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine.

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

First daughter Sasha Obama cut a stylish figure in jeans and shades as the Obama girls visited the Great Wall of China today. Michelle Obama, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, were left alone to explore the Mutianyu section of the historical landmark in the northern Beijing suburbs though Chinese police officers looked on protectively. The three walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: ´Loyal to Chairman Mao.´ The country has been fascinated by Mrs Obama´s ´elegance´ during the weeklong visit to the country to promote educational

Most Supreme Court watchers are fixated these days on Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby—the important challenge to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate scheduled for argument Tuesday. And why wouldn’t they be? With its potent mix of religion, sex, Obamacare, and prayerful corporations, it’s the blockbuster case of the term. It is also a crucial test of Chief Justice John Roberts’s leadership on the Supreme Court. Just two years ago, Roberts cast the deciding vote to largely uphold the Affordable Care Act. While the country remains divided over whether he acted like a traitor or a statesman, all would have to agree

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the

"Never in my lifetime have I seen a law that is helping so many people be so vilified," Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) told a conference call on Friday. She talked about the millions of people in her state who are benefiting from the law that Republicans have tried to repeal 54 times. "This is a huge success, this law. I´m saying that. We had a terrible rollout, it slowed us up, but it´s all falling into place now and the Republican answer is very, very simple -- let´s repeal it and take away all these benefits from people. And that´s just gonna
