Petition to White House Calls on Public
Schools to Recognize Muslim Holidays

Cybercast News Service, by Dan Joseph

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/15/2014 10:29:38 AM

A petition on White House.gov is calling for President Obama to support an effort to encourage public schools to recognize Muslim holidays on their official school calendars. The petition was put on the "We the People" site last month by a group of Muslim students from Virginia and has garnered about 28 thousand signatures so far. "With the growing population of Muslims in he United States of America (including first, second, third and fourth generation) we believe it is high time that Muslim holidays are recognized by schools throughout this nation," reads the petition text. "Unfortunately many Muslim families are forced to choose

Just change the September-June school year to full time, all year around and give everyone their holidays. Two weeks vacation during the summer.

That should go over like a lead balloon with the teachers´ unions.

Might as well. Since we are moving to NOT recognize Judeo Christian holidays, we may as well fill in those spaces with muslim holidays.

Not a problem for teachers. The will just point out that they are presently paid for 9 months work and will need a 33% raise for full time schooling.

Give them their money or they will strike. $133,000 per year for Chicago teachers.

I agree with other comments. Make school year round and recognize every Religious Holiday. Though I am unsure if there will be any time left for school under this method, because we have myriad religions and Holidays. and why should only schools celebrate these days. why not the whole Country, which means blackout all tv, all stores must close, the govt shuts down, etc. That will ensure Obama´s dream of making the U.S. a third World or less Nation. The fact is that students now spend way too little time in school and colleges have to have remedial classes to teach the high school
graduates what they should already know.

Well, a really big one is Ramadan. Lasts a whole month and people are not allowed to eat during daylight hours.

So, suspend the school breakfast and lunch programs to celebrate Ramadan.

Oh, and there´s a goat sacrifice holiday in there somewhere, too.

The territory once known as "the United States of America" was formerly subject to a legal code that emphasized a number of freedoms, among those was one enumerated as the First Amendment, which says, specifically, that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or the free exercise thereof..."

This has all been kicked in the head by allowing the entry of a foreign ideology DISGUISED as a "religion", and according it the rights normally accorded to actual religions. But in the exercise of that "religion", the effect has been to SUPPRESS all other actual religions, in a sort of "holy war" that has been imported to our shores.

This ideology carries with it a commitment to overthrow the existing but currently disused code of law, and replace it with a mishmash of contradictory case law loosely based on the words of a work of fiction called "the Koran", a made-up compendium of a revised view of mankind, itself based upon on earlier religious writings, but to which a denial and rejection of the veracity of those writings is strongly asserted. The words in that text are the mutterings of a sun-crazed hermit suffering from schizophrenic delusions of grandeur and persecution, with little redeeming social benefit.

The Koran is no more of a religious text, in the objective sense, than the tome "Das Kapital" by Karl Marx, or "Mein Kampf" by Adolf Hitler.

Another great idea to encourage the destruction of American. Let´s see, Valentines Day could be called "Polygamist Day". Fourth of July could be "Death to America Day". The first day of grade school would be "Pedophilia Day". Of course all federal workers take these days off with full pay and Obama plays 36 holes.

Chris Christie: Republicans don´t get anywhere

Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., turned down the opportunity to bash the mainstream media on Friday, when interviewed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly. Kelly pointed out, during a part of the interview aired on Friday, that there was an unprecedented volume of negative media coverage surrounding the bridge controversy in New Jersey. "Has this changed your view of the mainstream media?" she asked. "No, I´ve always had the same view," Christie said, pointing out that anyone can be the "flavor of the month" in the media. "But I´ve always said to my folks in the party, we don´t get anywhere complaining about it either,"

Republican pundit Charles Krauthammer said that when Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie embraced President Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy a week before the 2012 presidential election, he was essentially giving Obama a lap dance. “I think many Republicans are extremely upset with what was described in the press as giving Obama a bear hug,” Krauthammer said on Sunday in a debate with Obama strategist David Plouffe, according to Politico. “I saw it slightly differently, I thought it was more of like a lap dance. Not a phrase I would use on television, since the image is too disturbing.” Krauthammer did use

In a way it´s the oddest bit of ObamaCare propaganda we´ve seen so far. "This Is What an #ACASurge Looks Like" was the title of a Saturday post on the White House Blog by senior communications adviser Tara McGuinness. "The line started forming at 5 a.m. in front of an enrollment center in Miami," McGuinness boasts. "The final deadline to get covered in 2014 is in just two days, and Americans are literally lining up at grassroots events across the country to make sure they´re covered. This is what momentum looks like." To McGuinness´s credit, she does mean "literally" literally. The post

Suddenly ObamaCare is a roaring success, happy days are here again and liberals are euphoric, or claim to be. There are more than a few reasons to doubt this new fairy tale, not least the behavior of Senate Democrats running for re-election this year. In the Rose Garden Tuesday, President Obama reported that 7.1 million people had signed up so far, confirming a Monday night White House news leak. "That doesn´t mean all our health-care problems have been solved forever," he conceded with customary modesty. The government appears to have tapped heretofore-unknown reserves of bureaucratic efficiency by releasing numbers timed to

Health Care: The administration is crowing that 7 million people filled out applications for ObamaCare plans — the original enrollment target that once seemed impossible to hit. Don´t pop the champagne bottles just yet. Given the news about surging enrollment and rising poll numbers, maybe Nancy Pelosi was right that Democrats will all benefit in the fall from ObamaCare. Except that once you strip out the hyperbole, little remains to celebrate. • Seven million enrollees? That figure fails to discount those who haven´t paid their premiums. Among the eight states releasing this number, about one in five "enrollees," on average, haven´t paid.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.
