The time has finally arrived to push back against the religion on peace. There are no "peaceful" muslims, just quite ones. The Koran is what it is and muslim's cannot pick and choose the passages they want to embrace. For them, it's all or nothing! Andrea Tanteros is absolutly correct in saying what she said. Our country, apart from the socialist programs of progressive liberalism, is also being undermined by Islam, supported by a government that is encouraging it. Christians can no longer sit idlely by and await the coming confrontation with these two enemies of America's freedom, unprepared. Arm yourselves with the knowledge that can save you, then arm yourselves!
Much has been said and written recently about the Common Core agenda for America’s schools. Everybody has an opinion; here’s my take: A common core in education is not a new idea. I recall one of my male, elementary school teachers, a WWII combat veteran telling our class once that all us little children were expected to meet different goals by different grade levels. For example, children should know how to read and write by third grade, become familiar with arithmetic and know how to compute fractions by the forth grade and spell words correctly and compose sentences by the fifth grade, and so on. I got all that and it worked for me. Clearly there was a common core program somewhere. American history and civics were included too. The core standards then, were never mentioned as such, but were visible everywhere. Everybody I knew and met as I grew up, knew how to do the same things I could do. If one experienced difficulty in a school subject then remedial training was available. A parent was notified, the error corrected, and we moved on. Actual dumbkoff’s quickly revealed themselves and were eventually set apart. Sometimes they came around and sometimes they didn’t. Shame was a great motivator for us then. That was how life was in my early days. The Common Core, as it is now being presented, excites immediate suspicion by all clear thinking Americans, i.e.: those who escaped from government schools and learned under different auspices. So, why is Common Core drawing so much negativity today? Because it is covered with the fingerprints of federal government bureaucrats who reek with the stink of progressive liberalism. That’s why! No longer are educational goals simply to be achieved, they must be achieved according to the direction of some unknown bureaucrats, Obama acolytes, in the Department of Education, who hate America and are determined to change it. Worse, the Liberal/Marxist bureaucrats don’t like America’s history or how it developed, so they set about rewriting it and teaching it to suit their notions of fairness and commonality. And, the one main point no one talks about is that the common core is a sly, concerted effort to alter and eventually erase, the white Anglo-Saxon and European immigrants contributions to Americas exceptionalism; to deny its gift of western culture and civilization, including the rule of law, and create instead an America acceptable to third worlders overfilled with tribal bozos, disrespectful of human life and p
continued... We totally ignore the unbelievably rising death tolls in Chicago, Detroit, etc., as well as the IRS and Fast and Furious scandal’s by ignoring our own government’s base criminality and, we totally ignore the Islamic threat coming to our shores disguised by the dense fog of socialist multiculturalism. America is basically a Judeo-Christian nation yet Christians have remained silent while Eastern Christian sect’s, and Jews, are being slaughtered, publicly, by adherents of Islam. Our alleged president cautions we should not be hasty to judge Islam on the actions of a few errant muslim murderers (remember 9/11?) yet we should quickly condemn Americans, who want to defend themselves with their Constitutionally protected right to bear arms, as home grown terrorists. Our alleged president is at the nadir of his presidency. He threatened Syria with a ‘red line‘ and did nothing. He destroyed Libya yet blamed the Europeans for forcing him to do it. In order to keep a campaign promise, he pulled American forces out of Iraq and now, that country, as well as all the middle-east, is being snatched back into the darkness that was the bloody 13th century. Why must we endure any more ‘justice’? It’s time to deliver terrible retribution, and right now!
Our alleged President made a fine speech, before his next round of golf, on the brutal murder, by beheading, of American journalist James Foley. He certainly laid down the law about seeking ‘justice’ but, alas, we are now beyond seeking ‘justice’, We have been victimized too long. We need to visit upon ISIL, total destruction and we definitely need new leadership. Nowhere yet has any of the leftist media, or our alleged president for that matter, called the deed a murder using, instead, softer words like ‘execution’ or simply killed, to assuage the horror of the event, lest it should accidentally outrage and energize Americans. But, who cares? Our alleged president once again did nothing except play another round of golf. Of course, poor Foley wasn’t executed.That term applies only to legitimate governments who, following due process, have condemned a criminal to die, then do it. Foley was cruelly and brutally murdered. It was an Islamic political statement challenging America to a duel. They are not afraid of us anymore. What are we going to do about it? Where is America’s outrage? Where is America’s leadership? Have we been so anesthetized by political correctness that we are willing to simply await our executioners because our potential murderers tell us so? America was again attacked by Islam. Don’t forget Daniel Pearl; don’t forget the murders of four of the alleged president’s Consular team in Libya; don’t forget the thousands of American warriors whose lives were sacrificed on the grisly desert battlefields of Iraq; don’t forget the several border patrol officers killed enforcing the laws, and don’t forget 9/11. The new Islamic Caliphate openly declared war on America with Foley’s murder. It has already declared war on Christians. I wonder why a wing of B-52’s are not right now, at this very moment, carpet bombing into oblivion, all of the known locations of ISIL and leveling such odious oasis’s of Islamic thought as Takrit and Mosul. War is cruel and we have now arrived at that point in time when America must reassert itself or we will surely die like chickens in a packing plant, while cravenly imploring mercy from the merciless in a language we don’t speak. Where is America’s rising outrage over the loss of our decency by a government trying to impose the already failed experiment’s of Liberal-Progressivism on us? It’s lost in the hand-ringing sobs of race grievance mongers slobbering over a dead thug in Ferguson, Missouri. We to
Concluding paragraphs...And, the one main point no one talks about is that the common core is a sly, concerted effort to alter and eventually erase, the white Anglo-Saxon and European immigrants contributions to Americas exceptionalism; to deny its gift of western culture and civilization, including the rule of law, and create instead an America acceptable to third worlders overfilled with tribal bozos, disrespectful of human life and private property so as to create instead a society of grievance mongers that will forever vote democrat. To them, it is to be taught that our founding fathers are dead old white men who owned slaves, stole from the native American’s, stole from the Mexican’s, and stole from labor, all to create a greedy empire erected on the shoulders of the poor, the halt and the lame. Oh, woe is me! The basic fact is, Common Core is not to be trusted but to be viewed for what it is, the first step of the progressive - Marxist program to completely capture the minds of children and render them obedient servants of the state. Obama himself, has poisoned the well of government trust by his dishonesty. When every word uttered by the ‘leader’ is proven false, not mere slips of the tongue but outright provable lies, than everything he touches becomes suspect and should be avoided like the plague. Progressivism is the slow motion highjacking of America. We’re in the middle of it. Obamacare, aka: the unaffordable, no care act, is designed not to provide affordable health care to all American’s but to control our lives. Common Core is the blueprint to control children’s minds.

Concluding paragraphs... Also, pollution has absolutely nothing to do with black children’s inferiority, study skills or lack of drive, but random 9mm bullets do! Ms. Coates claims that black neighborhood dysfunction and criminality is because black communities have so long lived in “America’s crosshairs.” Well, how stupid is that? If any community just sits around waiting for government to help it, it’s going to have a long wait. The people in the neighborhood know what’s going on; they need to motivate themselves to make the repairs, adjustments and changes needed to rise out of poverty. Blacks complain they have no police protection. When police do enter those neighborhood’s to do their job, the are met with rocks, riots and anarchy. Even black policemen are considered the enemy. Finally, No where, ever, in any state, district or polling center has a Republican tried to stop blacks from voting. It is, and has alway’s been, the Democrat party that does that. There are no Republican laws that prevent blacks from voting. Photo voter ID is an attempt to prevent fraud. Just try to drive a car, buy liquor or pass through a TSA search without photo ID. That’s a stupid argument too! If any black reader has gotten this far I suggest you research the Frederick Douglas Republican web site. I am a Frederick Douglas Republican and there you will find the solution to all the problems Ms. Coates thinks blacks have. Ferguson, Mo. is a prime example of community dysfunction, not police dysfunction. You want better police, become a better community!
The conclusions drawn in the article by Ta-Nehisi Coates, referenced in this piece by Steve Chapman, are racist in and of themselves, and racism is a two way street. She makes no case for “Reparations” because not one American black living today was ever a slave as many of their grandparents once were. The pervasive mistreatment Ms. Coates refers to comes about because of contending and very opposite cultures. Mostly, white European cultures that made up the fabric of America, and into which black American’s need’s entry, see no value in accepting what is visible in today’s news as black culture, i.e.: riots, looting, apathy, crime and especially murder of their own. Whenever a prominent black politician, entertainer or Pastor tries to uplift the consciousness of black American’s, he or she is shot down by black grifters whose lively hoods depends on the friction created by separation of the races. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are primary. It is no wonder that mistreatment and discrimination is considered an entrenched practice that contributes to private prejudice. That very synopsis is why real estate is considered such a contentious problem. Whites, until Obama at least, made up the vast majority of America’s work force. So did many black, until Obama. They could buy homes, live in a safe, similar cultural environment, enjoy the fruits of their labor and prosper. Forced enter, by government edict, a totally opposite culture, one that demands respect although none is earned, demands tax payer support, whether it’s available or not, and enters into a life style of predatory criminality, drives the white cultures away and the once prominent neighborhoods quickly become crime ridden and gang infested slums. Blacks eschew the education available to them claiming they don’t want to be “white”. They are saying, therefore, they have no interest in their personal achievement. Now, we know this is not true. Many rising black business people, who speak English as it should be spoken, are having no difficulty rising in the ranks of any organization they work for. The evidence of their success is everywhere. They have accepted becoming “American’s”. Why are black school considered inferior? Because liberal governments keep them that way. Black parents in Washington DC wept when their child was not selected, on a raffle drawing, for acceptance into a Charter School. Why? Do they know that black schools are inferior? Seems that many do.
You are almost right. George III did have the legitmacy to rule, he just abused it and that's what inflamed a small minority of British Colonists to take the deepest possible exception. The remaineder of your comment is basically correct however. Good post.

Suddenly, any voice from our side will be lost in the screaming cacophony of the hysterical “Left”, especially NOW women, who have been taught that sex is a choice available without consequences but, if consequences should arise, then it is the duty of private enterprise (somebody else) to pay for it. The good thing about all this is that the “Left” is still going hysterical, and stupid, in their pronouncements and, in proving Newton’s Law of Gravity, a object in motion tends to stay in motion, they will roll on until they either hit a wall or run out of steam due to friction. One hopes the truth of this law of physics applies as well to Obama’s presidency which, like Newton’s apple, appears to be in free fall. Oh, the humanity of it! The SCOTUS ruling is really only a storm in a tea cup. What it presages however, is the inevitable collapse of Obamacare by outside forces, regardless of Obamacare’s apparent collapsing of its own infirmities. The problem for us is, will it actually collapse before or after Obama has forcibly changed America into the economic, socialistic, third world basket case he has always intended it to be? There is simply not enough money in the world to make universal health care work but Obama is going to try, the consequences for America be damned.
