School Prayer

***Love this.

BY A 15-year-old SCHOOL KID who got an A+ for this entry:

The Lord's Prayer Is not allowed in most US Public schools any more. A kid in Minnesota, wrote the following: NEW School Prayer:

Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.


If scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.

Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene..
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.

For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all..
In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the State.

We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks...
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.

We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong,
We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong..

We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles...
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.

It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!
Amen




***Pleading the 5th. This is Hillary Clinton's IT guy. But...I thought she had nothing to hide?

Investigators on the Benghazi Select Committee had hoped to question former Clinton IT specialist Bryan Pagliano over the possible destruction of evidence, known in legal circles as “spoliation,” a congressional source told Fox News.
However, in an August 31 letter to Congress, Pagliano’s attorney said the former 2008 campaign staffer who installed and managed Clinton’s personal server and left his IT job at the State Department in February 2013, the same month Clinton stepped down as secretary, would “respectfully assert his Fifth Amendment right” before the Benghazi Select Committee.

It is absolutely mind-boggling that she hasn't had the decency to at least suspend her presidential campaign (I know, I know, it's really not) - but the fact that she still has a lot of supporters is what really gets me. That's a special kind of stupid.

***Two men claim they have found Nazi gold train. 

Two men told a Polish TV station on Friday they have “irrefutable proof” that they found a Nazi train that is said to be laden with gold.
Identifying themselves as Andreas Richter and Piotr Koper, the men appeared on TVP.INFO. Richter confirmed to The Associated Press he had found the train.
Authorities in the southwestern city of Walbrzych said last month that two men had contacted them through lawyers claiming they had found an armored train that could possibly contain valuables and weapons. The report has sparked a gold rush around the city, where tales have circulated since World War II that the Nazis hid a train fill of gold from the Soviet Army in early 1945.

Interesting if true.

***TIME magazine story about unemployment is an insult to our intelligence. TIME has long been an arm of the Democrat party. This shouldn't surprise anyone.

RUSH: The unemployment numbers are out. TIME Magazine. This whole subject has been a source of great irritation for me.  We now have, folks, 94 million Americans not working.  The labor force participation rate is at an all-time low.  Now, the labor force participation rate is a percentage of able-bodied people actually working, and it's 62.6%, which is really low, it's an historic low.
What it translates to real numbers is 94 million Americans not working, and yet they report the unemployment number 5.1%.  It's an insult. It's an insult to everybody's intelligence, and here we have TIME Magazine, they go through all of these numbers very excitedly.




***Thousands of cancer patients to be denied treatment. This is in Great Britain, where they have nationalized health care. We're following the same path, and the liberals in this country just think it's the greatest thing.
 
More than 5,000 cancer patients will be denied life-extending drugs under plans which charities say are a “dreadful” step backwards for the NHS.
Health officials have just announced sweeping restrictions on treatment, which will mean patients with breast, bowel, skin and pancreatic cancer will no longer be able to receive drugs funded by the NHS.
In total, 17 cancer drugs for 25 different indications will no longer be paid for in future.

***When black music was conservative. This is a really interesting article.

Nevertheless, the assumption that the state of contemporary black music is part of an unbroken chain of lusty lyrics and social protest leading back to the early days of rock—and even further back, to jazz and the blues—not only plays to the pernicious stereotype of a hypersexualized black culture; it also ignores a rich musical history that can be credibly described as socially conservative. The classic soul recordings of such sixties giants as Solomon Burke, Joe Tex, Percy Sledge, The Impressions, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, James Brown, and others embodied values at odds with those purveyed in much black popular music today. This music deserves appreciation for reasons that transcend nostalgia and even quality—as substantial as that was—and its decline raises troubling questions about the condition of black America and about American culture as a whole.

Eddie and his wife June are shopping in their local supermarket.  The husband picks up a case of Heineken and puts it in their cart.
'What do you think you're doing?' asks June.
'They're on sale, only $15 for 24 cans Eddie replies.
'Put them back, we can't afford them' demands the wife, and so they carry
on shopping. Husband jokes
A few aisles further on along June picks up a $30 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket.
'What do you think you're doing?' asks Eddie.
'It's my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,' replies the wife.
Her husband retorts: 'So does 24 cans of Heineken and it's half the price.'
Eddie never knew what hit him.
The next thing he heard on the supermarket PA system was: 'Cleanup on aisle 19, we have a husband down.'
