Not an active member, in fact, have not attended since being confirmed as a presby 45 years ago at age 13. But I did send a letter denouncing my presby faith several years ago when the initial divestiture of Israel actually first occurred. This is not new. They are ill-advised.
David3036, Do some research on Antonio Gramsci.
The real goal of Common Core is as plain as the name they gave it. The "common core" that it refers to is the basic level of intelligence and learning ability that nearly anybody can achieve. Common Core is designed to "level the playing field" so that people of all backgrounds and ethnicity will score similarly on standardized tests. Unfortunately, it attempts to achieve this by creating a curriculum that equally confuses and confounds everyone, so that the "privileged class" does not excel above ethnic minorities. Rather than raise educational standards, it degrades them so that everyone can get an "A" and feel good about themselves, or more accurately, reduces the reliance on common sense and logic for problem solving. It is a giant game of "whack-a-mole" designed to keep "over achievers" in line with 'the common core" of students. Shameful to say the least.

Well, I am outraged.
As if on cue to your comment, Paul Jacob reports the story that the IRS has "lost" two years of emails belonging to Lois Lerner was not reported in The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune or The Los Angeles Times. Lying by omission.
They lie on the front page, because the retraction, or proof of deceit is never on the front page (if it is printed at all).
I would also put a concrete blockade across the exit that led to the Marine's predicament, and any other road to Mexico that is not clearly marked and allows for a u-turn prior to entry into that disrespectful country.
