Clarifying America's Gun Culture

Thank you Katie for sharing the true reason for the second amendment. It seems like I screen at the TV every night when not a single pundit has any idea why we have a right to firearms.
This, of course, is the fault of the Obama administration and, probably, with a major share of the blame on Hillary Clinton. There is little doubt that apologizing for anti extreme Islam movie prior to the initial Egyptian event, gave the fanatical Muslims one more excuse to riot. There is little doubt that the initial reasons for the mobs to attack was the assassination of bin Laden, and the drone attacks that were killing terrorist leaders. This should be obvious to a fifth grader, since they were obviously well planned and happened on 9/11. It is inexcusable that we should apologize for an American citizen expressing his freedom of speech. Especially, knowing he is a Coptic Christian. ... Fanatical Muslims are often Monsters.

Obama's Educational Excellence Initiative

Williams has it mostly right, there is no doubt that the lack of discipline, especially in inner city schools is the major problem and until we have the courage to fix that, nothing much will be accomplished. However, I think he's wrong when he shifts much of the blame to the parents.. My grandson was part of Teach America a couple of years ago, serving in Marietta, Arkansas, and quickly discovered that he couldn't teach the students anything as long as the lack of discipline was allowed to continue. His solution was to instigate military discipline in his 5th and 6th grade classes. In the two years he served, he had zero discipline problems and the complete support of every parent. He just explained how the children would benefit.

The Democratic Party Fascists Take Over

My only complaint with the article is the comment, "And it's becoming the ugly new attitude of the Democratic Party elite." This has always been the attitude of the Progressive elite. They don't believe any ideas but there's should ever see the light of day. The are mentally ill, believing that they and only they know and believe the truth and that all lies and falsehoods have no right to exist. To them conservative speech is like hollering "Fire!" in a crowded auditorium and, therefore, should NOT be allowed.
and in Pakistan the Muslims. In Eastern Europe it was the Jews that were often the shop owners, the dentists, the doctors, and the lawyers and in Pakistan and East Pakistan it was the Hindus. Hitler and the Pakistan rulers knew their was great jealousy and that it would be easy to turn the populations against them. Millions killed because evil rulers created an environment for class warfare. This is the greatest sin a leader can do ... in my opinion a felony that deserves impeachment.
Star, I love you columns and this is an excellent one. The issue you didn't mention, but I'm sure you are aware of, is the imminent danger of pitting class against class. There is no doubt that our society will suffer if government doesn't understand how capitalism creates wealth and makes life better for all levels of society. This is the reason most conservatives are against Obama and his policies. However, there is even a greater danger that is sometimes hidden when people talk about genocide. During the last century over 100,000,000 people were killed as a result of class warfare. It wasn't only Stalin and Mao that wanted to get rid of the middle and upper middle classes (the educated classes) it was also Hitler ...
Actually, one of the smartest kids (now a very successful man) quit school in the fourth grade and was self taught from that moment on. I said "self taught" not home schooled ...
