We accepted it; step by step. We still do. We are getting more agitated but still they push and still we back up. It´s a mess now. It wont be easy. At some point we will start electing representatives that will take a stand and push back. They will impeach those, judges for example and agency heads for another, who are there to subvert.

I am an old geezer, but I remember when it was required that the teacher read a passage from the Bible before the class started for the day. All the religious Christmas Carols were sang in the School Christmas play. Students were much better behaved and school shootings were unheard of. All the boys carried a jackknife and no one was ever stabbed.

If I were a young person today, I would not fight for this country, much less be a law enforcement officer. Fight for what? Can´t say the word GOD, and we´re supposed to believe we´re free? Illegals (criminals) pouring into the country at the invitation of the CIC? For no other purpose but to destroy it´s very foundation and secure more votes for the CPUSA (DemonRATS)?

The teacher should be paid in peanuts, since dollars have "In God We Trust" on them.
The students should start each day singing God Bless America.

#1 is right. We allowed this to happen, step by step, by not fighting back to these assaults on our freedom our society´s values right from the start. As is always the case, if you do not confront a problem when it´s small, it just grows worse and more difficult to control over time. Now we are faced with having to undo years of social disintegration at the hands of the antisocial elements in our country. It won´t be easy to undo the damage, because these people will certainly fight tooth and nail to continue their destructive ways. It is a battle we must win or else see our country slide further into the pit.

Pres. Obama just said "May God bless the families..." and "God bless America." on National TV. If it is good enough for him to say it, why isn´t it good enough for students to say "Bless you." God´s name wasn´t even mentioned. That teacher should be suspended for a day without pay for being so stupid and sensitive. Better yet, fire her.

Be a Christian. It is the ultimate act of rebellion!

Who would have thought in a million years things could get so crazy. Liberalism is a mental disease that spreads through the air at our institutions of higher learning. Make sure you inoculate your kids will the proper dose of common sense conservatism before you send them off to school. Academia is eagerly awaiting the new crop of students.

Oh geez...not the Evangelicals again. Why don´t the Evangelicals start their own party if they really want full representation? While I do believe that we are a Judeo-Christian nation, I do not want Christianity (especially one particular kind) legislated either. Not all Christians are "Evangelicals". They are a small portion of Christians. They do NOT need to take over the GOP.

If one is looking for reasons why Washington has become so caustic, divisive and bitter, look no further than retiring Attorney General Eric Holder. If reports first published by the Los Angeles Times are correct, the always controversial Holder, aged 63, will soon announce a new and permanent ban on so-called ‘religious profiling’ designed to better protect those suspected of jihadist or Islamist activities from federal surveillance. At the very moment the American state, local and federal law enforcement are trying to get a handle on a spate of Islamist-inspired beheadings and the discovery that Islamic State terror cells are active

The three Afghanistan National Army officers who attempted to escape to Canada spent more than $1,600 on taxis to travel to the border after researching an escape route on YouTube. Major Jan Mohammad Arash, Captain Mohammad Nasir Askarzada and Captain Noorullah Aminyar vanished from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, last month and were picked up at a border checkpoint in Niagara Falls. The men had been participating in a joint military exercise at Camp Edwards when they seized the opportunity to make their getaway during a group outing to Walmart.

Viagra ´may cause blindness´: Ingredient

Viagra could cause blindness in men with eye problems, and even those with seemingly normal vision, a new study has found. Australian researchers say an ingredient in anti-impotence drugs may permanently affect the vision of men with an inherited eye condition. It could also affect those with normal sight who carry one gene which is linked with developing eye problems. One theory is that erectile dysfunction drugs may obstruct an enzyme which is important for transmitting light signals from the retina to the brain. It is already known that sildenafil, the active ingredient in the erectile dysfunction medication, can cause

Nearly half of federal agency rulings dismissing employee discrimination claims have been overturned under President Obama, costing American taxpayers tens of billions of dollars in settlements to keep with the administration’s mission of operating a politically correct government. In one year alone this translated into an astounding $51.4 billion that federal agencies paid to settle discrimination claims that often had no merit, according to the government’s figures. The information comes from a report issued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the bloated federal agency that enforces the nation’s workplace discrimination laws.

"Once Iran produces atomic bombs, all the charms and all the smiles will suddenly disappear. They’ll just vanish.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,
