"The measure of a man is what he does with power."~~~~~~~~~~~~~Plato
As in the joke: What are the best three years of a Polack's life? Third Grade (For the record, both my husband and I are of proud Polish stock who know a joke when we hear it.)
correction: was using duck and cover.
We had the same issue with the Viet Cong many moons ago. They fought guerrilla warfare, while we were still using the us- battlefield-them lineup as our engagement strategy. We were using the old form of battlefield rules of engagement, while our adversary is using duck and cover. The warfare of yesteryear, of meeting on the battlefield in basically a you take one side, I have the other, and we'll see who wins, no longer exists with this enemy. Time to think of French-Indian War-Revolutionary War strategy of yesteryear as our enemy is engaging in civilian as well as military fronts.
Mariela is correct in that much of the population has been under Castro-Soviet control for so long that those who understood and could utilize capitalism are (most likely) in the United States. Look at the Soviet system, in less than twenty-five years, they are resorting to the Stalinist-ish style of communism. With very few people having had the experience in capitalism in the Soviet system, and not having had a prior history with it prior to the Revolution with the Czarist monarchy, the economic policies of capitalism would be difficult to utilize in the old USSR. The same can be said of Castro controlled communist Cuba.
Far, far too many women experience deep grief and depression after an abortion. It is the well known (at least amongst the pro-life and abortion activists) elephant in the room scenario. Known, yet, unspoken.
It is the Howard Zinn version of AP History.
Protestants and Catholics need to fight this mandate. If protestants think they are exempt, it is only a matter of time before your televised, print, and radio ministries are attacked.

Deutoronomy and Matthew: 4 And it be told thee, and thou hast heard of it, and enquired diligently, and, behold, it be true, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought in Israel: 5 Then shalt thou bring forth that man or that woman, which have committed that wicked thing, unto thy gates, even that man or that woman, and shalt stone them with stones, till they die. 6 At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death. 7 The hands of the witnesses shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterward the hands of all the people. So thou shalt put the evil away from among you. 8 If there arise a matter too hard for thee in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and stroke, being matters of controversy within thy gates: then shalt thou arise, and get thee up into the place which the Lord thy God shall choose; 9 And thou shalt come unto the priests the Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days, and enquire; and they shall shew thee the sentence of judgment: 10 And thou shalt do according to the sentence, which they of that place which the Lord shall choose shall shew thee; and thou shalt observe to do according to all that they inform thee: 11 According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do: thou shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall shew thee, to the right hand, nor to the left. 12 And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the Lord thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel. And in Jesus' case: 17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
My daughter's parochial high school used Zinn for their AP US history course. It is not just public schools who utilized Zinn's work.
