A Sign From Above... Was this the fallen soldier's way of saying, "All is OK"

Destroying professor at a time

Did you ever wonder who are the culprits that are destroying the once great United States of America...besides the obvious politicians (i.e. Pelosi, Reid, Obama, etc.)?  If you look for those who are educating brainwashing our younger generation you'll find them at our once prestigious universities.  I found one such nut-job at Princeton University (once the pride of colonial New Jersey) and his name is Michael Oppenheimer.  Of course his name is preceded by the formerly respected title of, "Dr." but that doesn't make him any smarter; it's just a title given by like-minded nut-jobs.  If you don't believe that people like Oppenheimer want to destroy the U.S. take a few seconds to digest what he has to say:
The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization we have In the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are.Michael Oppenheimer (Environmental Defense Fund)
So it's pretty much cut and dried that Dr. Knows-What's-Best-For-You resents the success we have had as a nation and encourages us to prevent other struggling nations to advance up the hierarchy of modern development.  Now if I were to introduce you to someone that I highly respect, I would most likely seek a venue that meets the standards of respectability.  I think Stephen Colbert is on the low rung of the ladder of respect, so without further ado lets let one nut-job introduce you to another nut-job.  Stephen Colbert welcomes Dr. Michael Oppenheimer...but don't believe a word he says...Oppenhiemer's word that is.  ~ Norman E. Hooben
ps: This is one occasion where Stephen Colbert presents himself as someone other than a fact I believe he makes Dr. Oppenheimer look like an idiot for which he is!

Has America lost her 'free will'? or... Has America lost her will to be free?

When thinking is restricted thinking ceases to exist.

America’s Idiocracy:
How Have We Become Pawns of Whoever Governs?
By Marilyn Assenheim
Rush Limbaugh made an astounding statement during his program on the day following the State of the Union sermon. Mr. Limbaugh confessed that he hadn’t understood that America doesn’t connect the Lyin’ King or his policies with the ills besetting the nation.
What caused his epiphany? Mr. Limbaugh arrived at his conclusion after watching a focus group, post presidential speech. This focus group was composed entirely of former Romney voters. The focus group, like a majority of the nation, professed to hate the direction the country is taking yet loved the president’s speech. Mr. Limbaugh was gob-smacked by this demonstration of “double-think.” What Mr. Limbaugh acknowledged was illuminating but, it only highlighted the tip of the iceberg.
Mr. Limbaugh, quite correctly, identified that the president always makes certain that he is never perceived as “governing.” He is solely focused on playacting at resisting the phantoms he claims are to blame for the problems that beset us. The problems are never the president’s doing. Mr. Limbaugh added that such behavior is a staple of dictatorship. Yet The Anointed One continues to be believed by a large portion of the constituency. His every deceit is accepted as truth, despite his history of lying to us about everything, day in and day out.

The existence of such Orwellian conduct, by the president as well as the public, isn’t the major problem. The reasons for it are. In order for such a dichotomy to be possible there must exist near total ignorance of logic and common sense. And this is the issue that is not being addressed.

Common sense is anything but common. Every voluntary action a human being performs must be learned. A human being is not born with common sense. And logic must accompany common sense. Logic is a discipline that is based upon fact and evidence of whatsoever is true. Logic teaches one to think. Without it, “common sense” would still dictate that the earth is flat.

Logic used to be a required subject in school. It isn’t anymore. That isn’t an oversight. Bertrand Russell knew this over 60 years ago: “Education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished.” (Page 50 – The Intended Result of Education, c. 1952). He wasn’t advocating this idea; he was simply stating the obvious.

The left is never required to prove anything. Leftists make statements and whatever they say, regardless of how false, automatically becomes true because they say it is so. Every media outlet, especially entertainment and the mainstream media, eagerly regurgitates “right think.”Elected representatives tell us only what they want us to believe regardless of how frequently what they tell us changes (see picture at right →). We are not permitted to disagree with anything a minority leader says or does. Only an ignorant public could comply without dispute. Unfortunately, many do.

Political Correctness completes the destructive hat trick. When thinking is restricted thinking ceases to exist. Everything from eroding personal freedoms to gun control to the blind acceptance of any and every perversion are byproducts of what is deemed permissible thought and what is not.

We have hate crime. Hate crime outranks crime. Why? How can any murder be of less significance than another murder? Worse, certain interest groups, we are told, are exempt from hate crime. Their status as minorities makes hate crime “impossible.” Christopher Dorner is a prime example. He slaughtered nearly every racial type and gender of human being yet excuses were made and the mainstream media urged us to consider the “discrimination” he was fighting against. Affirmative action, elected officials are given a free pass (Keith Ellison and Maxine Waters spring immediately to mind) to pursue just about any foolish behavior, word or deed, that occurs to them. Why is this accepted?

The University of Wisconsin teaches a course whose focus is that it is an unfair advantage to be white. No one questions what the criteria are or who got to decree what is unfair and what is not. Dr. Benjamin Carson, a world-famous, pediatric neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins, had the audacity to raise the alarm PC poses to thought at the recent National Prayer Breakfast. He did it right to the president’s face. How unutterably sad that PC begs the question, had Dr. Carson not been a black man, would his reputation have survived making that speech? There is still doubt; an infuriated media attempted to marginalize him, publicly asking whether his comments were “appropriate,” all because Dr. Carson committed blasphemy by speaking his mind.

When logic, common sense and the ability to say what one thinks becomes irrelevant it becomes effortless for any ruling class to supply whatever “facts” they want Americans to believe. Our current reality is that facts no longer matter; instead we pay court to emotion. The danger in not understanding that this is the real predicament is immense; if one doesn’t recognize the problem how can one fix the problem?
Progressives have controlled education, social services and PC for nearly 100 years. “Low information voters” are created when only low information is made available; when indoctrination replaces education. An eighth grade education used to be tantamount to what is currently attained in college.

The left’s agenda may well be the destruction of our ability to think. Without such aptitude there is no rule of law. Everything becomes mutable. The Constitution becomes disposable. Without thought we are unable to protect ourselves. We become pawns of whoever governs.
The Lyin’ King claims he is “not a dictator.”  Perhaps.  But he is within a stone’s throw. He is the pinnacle of preparations launched long ago. The absence of logical thought makes it easy to see how the man spearheading our ruin got reelected. We should be taking steps, right now, to launch the long journey back to rationality.

My Country? ...I'm embarased to say it, but its still my country.

Its very embarassing to read some of the following stories...darn right embarasing!  To see whats happening all around our country is shameful to say the least and that the so called adults that are allowing it to go on is insane!  This pop-tart story never should have left the lunch room and the irresponsible adults that allowed it to get out of hand should be suspended for life...maybe even jailed for life! (Can you tell I'm ticked off? ...and you should be too!).  Josh Welch, don't let this thing hang over you...the teacher that sent the note home with the other students has been brainwashed by the politic elite and has lost all common sense. 
Then there's James Lord... God bless ya James, but don't give in to those idiots.  Where you said,“I can’t guarantee I won’t say it again.” said the right thing!  "God bless!"  And what do I have to say about your school principal Jonathan Heerboth..."Life imprisonment! Without parole!" (Can you tell I'm ticked off? ...and you should be too!)
And for Jonathan Cross...I know you're only 9 years old but if you and your parents don't get out of that town your in, you maybe totally screwed up by the time you're 10.  For your school officials...repeat the life imprisonment line here.
Why they're not having a hero's party at Cypress Lake High School in Fort Myers is beyond me.  May I suggest to the 16-year-old student that maybe next time he should simply wear a bullet proof vest and maybe mind his own business...of course you know I'm only saying this in jest for I'm really ticked off about this case.  You're a hero!  A real honest-to-goodness hero!  And they make you look like a criminal.   Shame, shame on them!  Although I don't believe in the death penalty, I'm willing to chip in and buy the rope!  (Repeat the ticked off line here.)  These stories and more below.  ~ Norman E.

Strawberry Pop Tarts, Hello Kitty Bubble Guns and Other Terroristic Threats!
Lock and Toast
Josh Welch, a seven-year-old Park Elementary second-grader in Baltimore was suspended from school for two days for biting his Pop Tart into the shape of a gun.
This isn’t about safety or common sense or preventing a crime. This is even beyond political correctness. This is insanity on steroids. These are morons who are supposed to be educating our children and they pull this kind of non-sense. It’s time we speak out to the ridiculousness of this behavior and protect our children. There is no way I would want my children spending 6 or 7 hours a day being indoctrinated by people to stupid to know the difference being a real danger and a gun shaped strawberry Pop Tart.
The school made the incident even worse by sending a note home with all children that said, “a student used food to make an inappropriate gesture,” Fox reported.

Think this is the only incident of bizarre school behavior? Think again. Here are three more examples I found that have occurred since January of this year:
1.  "A 5-year-old girl was suspended from school earlier this week after she made what the school called a “terrorist threat.”

Her weapon of choice? A small, Hello Kitty automatic bubble blower.

The kindergartner, who attends Mount Carmel Area Elementary School in Pennsylvania, caught administrators’ attention after suggesting she and a classmate should shoot each other with bubbles…"
2.  For the second time in less than a month, a Maryland child is kicked out of school for using his finger in the shape of a gun.
3.  A kindergartner at Alice Drive Elementary in Sumter, SC has been expelled from school for bringing a clear plastic gun to class for show and tell.
Public schools or what I now call government schools have become the conduit of propaganda for our socialist federal government.
Until our schools return to educating our children instead of indoctrinating them, it is our duty to pull them out and either send them to private school or educate them at home.

Student broadcaster suspended for 'God bless'
Sign-off before holiday deemed inappropriate for public institution
A high school student dismissed from his school broadcast program for signing off with “God bless” is rallying community members to his side.
James Lord, a senior at Dupo High School in Dupo, Ill., was suspended for one month from his daily news broadcast on the school’s closed circuit television after signing off his Dec. 17 broadcast, the Belleville News-Democrat reported.
Lord told his student audience: “Have a safe and happy holiday, and God bless.”
School Principal Jonathan Heerboth has said Lord’s comment was inappropriate for public school, the paper reported.
Lord said he plans to appeal the suspension because he claims it violated his First Amendment rights. Geoffrey Surtees, a lawyer with the Virginia-based American Center for Law and Justice who is advising Lord, said he would wait to see the outcome of the board meeting before making a comment.
Ahead of his address to the school board, Lord distributed more than 400 flyers to encourage local people to attend the meeting. The fliers said the school board was to meet last night, but board members say it is scheduled Jan. 27.
Will Lord say “God bless” again when he returns to the show Feb. 1?
“I can’t guarantee I won’t say it again,” the student said, according to the News-Democrat.
School board member Mike Kloess said he had nothing against Lord’s actions.
“I didn’t have a problem with what he said, but [Superintendent Michael] Koebel knows the rules and knows what people can say and can’t say,” he told the Belleville paper.
Koebel could not be reached for comment.
James’ mother, Beverly Lord, called the school’s decision harsh and a suppression of free speech, the paper said.

4th-grader suspended for gun shell in pocket
Campus sponsors 'Camouflage Day,' kicks out boy due to 'zero tolerance'
When 9-year-old Jonathan Cross dressed up in his duck-hunting outfit for his school’s Camouflage Day this week, he never dreamed his love for the sport would backfire on him.
Covered from head to toe in his gear, the fourth-grader was “a very happy camper,” according to his mother, excited to show off his new hunting boots, hat, mesh face mask, shirt, bib, pants and boots.
But there was something in his pocket he had forgotten about – a shotgun shell left over from an outing with his father and brothers last weekend.
His discovery of the item while on campus has left the straight-A student stunned with a five-day suspension, his teachers in tears, and his parents perplexed over the latest case of “zero tolerance” in the government school system. ...Story continues here

'High school hero' suspended for three days after wrestling a loaded revolver AWAY from gunman
Witnesses say there would almost certainly have been fatalities had the boy not intervened

A high school student from Florida who wrestled a loaded gun away from another teenager who was threatening to shoot is being punished.
The 16-year-old student from Cypress Lake High School in Fort Myers student struggled with the suspect on the bus ride home.
Witnesses say the suspect aimed his weapon point blank at another student and threatened to shoot.
The student who has stated he does not want to be identified because he fears for his safety, says there's 'no doubt' he saved a life by disarming the gunman. The next day the school suspended him for three days.
A pupil who was also riding the bus at the time but who did not want to be identified said: 'I think he was really going to shoot him right then and there.'
According to Fox4Now.comthe student was suspended for his role in an 'incident' where a weapon was present and given an "emergency suspension.' ...Story continues here
