"Let me see if I've got this right"
After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective teacher said: "Let me see if I've got this right".
You want me to go into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits, censor their T-shirt messages and instill in them a love for learning.
You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self-esteem and personal pride.
You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a check book, and apply for a job.
You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behavior, and ensure that they all pass their final exams.
You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicap and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Arabic or any other language, by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card
You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for "New Start."
You want me to do all this, and then you tell me......
I CAN'T wear a necklace with a little cross, mention God, or say "Merry Christmas" because someone might take offense? "
Well, you know what you can do with your job........
This should be posted in every school in America and all countries.
Think about it!
If Muslims can pray anywhere, why are Christians banned from praying in public and from erecting religious displays on their holy days?
What happened to our National Day of Prayer?
Muslims are allowed to block off major streets, in all American States and pray in the middle of the street! And it's a monthly ritual!
Tell me, again, whose country is this
Ours or the Muslims?
I was asked to send this on if I agree, or delete if I don't.
It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a problem in having 'God' in our education system or the Lord's Prayer said in our government, schools or public meetings.
I believe it's time we stand up for what we believe!
Red wave is coming in November!!!!
I really have a feeling that we are headed for Red Wave in November!!!!..What do you guys think???
Should people who were in prison be able to vote???
What do you guys think???
Why is Stormy Daniels the darling of the left? From what I can see she's a blackmailer and an extortionist. Let's look at the sequence of events:
1. 2009 or 2010??: Ms Daniels may or may not have had a one nighter with now Prez Trump. In any case she had her picture taken with a celebrity.
2. 2016: Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination for president.
3. 2016: The intrepid Stormy puts her clothes on and trots over to candidate Trump's lawyer with threats of making his boy look bad. Said lawyer says o.k. how much to keep it under wraps. Stormy decides on 130k, gets her money and signs a nondisclosure agreement.
4. 2016: Donald Trump is elected 45th president of the United States. Stormy feels gypped.
5. 2017: The advent of #metoo. The intrepid Stormy sees an opportunity for more cash so she makes up a victim story about being threatened, puts her clothes back on, gets an attorney (those two things may be in a different order), and goes public about her purported "affair" with the current president 10+ years ago.
6. 2018: Still with her clothes on, Stormy makes the rounds of news and talk shows.
7. 2018: Robert Mueller, having come up bupkus on Russian collusion, thinks maybe he can make a case for misuse of campaign funds for the initial blackmail payoff to Stormy. So instead of a Subpoena, he enlists NY to raid and seize Mr Cohen's records in a very dramatic way so that it has the biggest media impact.
8. The intrepid Stormy appears at Mr. Cohen's court appearance being seen dragged along by a familiar looking security person. She stands before numerous microphones to give her opinion of the proceedings.
So we have a blackmailer and extortionist who made her deal and due to subsequent events wanted more. The left was only too happy to embrace her in their slavering need to destroy our President. Mueller was only too happy to use this as an excuse for a dramatic raid to appear as tho he's "making progress". The media wss only too happy to portray this blackmailer as a sympathetic victim. Who's the victim here? Hasn't this gone far enough? The whole thing has kinda devolved to slapstick.
Sarah Hillbilly Sanders, the perfect mealy mouthpiece for the failing Donald Trump.
Trump could not have picked a more perfect scowling countenance to match his own than this sour faced Hall Monitor. Does she actually think that the endlessly scripted prevarications for her mysogenistic mob boss’ erratic, self contradictory, verbally abusive behavior are credible?
No doubt some of you wili rush to her defense with the same shrill alternative facts as she pulls up from her podium folder of retaliatory talking points. A spirited defense based on a plausible explanation I can understand and respect. Blatant rants riddled with distortions and untruths that we can see with our own eyes I cannot.
Why Trump Hatred IS So Frantically Crazy (& why he's a great president)
Finally, in this country, we have had the opportunity to elect someone who is not by, for, and of the swamp. Someone who owes them nothing and does not fear them. Someone who, at last, goes about fulfilling their campaign promises. Trump is a potent crusher of polite society, political correctness, and finally now, of the corrupt existing order as he overturns the money changers tables and strives to make representative government representative again as well as have the elected earn the consent of the governed, just like the founding fathers intended when they designed this exceptional nation. Finally someone has come along, willing and capable of dealing with this epic cesspool of money, power, status and influence that controls the positions of power at all levels. This swamp is everywhere, a tsunami that crushes anyone that gets in its path, It's the elected officials on both sides -- the establishment on both sides, the media, federal bureaucracies, special interest, lobbyists. They are the perfect embodiment of Lord Akton's adage "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely".
And what exactly, may I ask, is wrong with you two faced hypocritical back-ass-words Marxist programmed Pea Brained Obamabot libtards? How is it you have a problem with a president who is finally fulfilling his campaign promises ??? You don't like having our nation restored ???, --- having jobs come back with big and small business thriving and putting an end to large corporations leaving the country, undoing the deliberate damage Obama dId to our economy and the small entrepreneur with his massive overregulation, The damage he did to our military cutting the number of our planes and ships about in half and firing 400 generals and admirals who failed to answer yes to the question: "Would you fire upon American citizens, if ordered to do so?" (Oh, you didn't know about that eigh ? No surprise! Certainly you can't expect your leftist/globalist propaganda dispenser to tell you.) And how about the damage he's done to race relations by standing with criminal/Communist agitator groups like Black Lives Matter rather than telling our youth to respect the police, follow their directives, keep your mouth shut and don't be confrontational. In your foolish narcissism did you think that "Hope & Change", which Obama never explained, was whatever you wanted it to be rather than a plunge into Marxism with a movement towards communist revolution (Did you know Andrew Breitbart was murdered, joining Obama's Deadpool list shortly after announcing that he had video from Obama's college days that showed why class envy & animosity and racial division & hatred was central to what "Hope & Change" was all about) Man, there is something seriously wrong with you Trump haters.. And I know what it is. You want our nation destroyed so you can build your fantasy leftist utopia from the ashes, so that you can be free of Christian values. (Sort of like the Satanist motto "Do What Thou Wilt") Well, let me tell you, we don't want your socially engineered leftist utopia where everyone has to think the same, where we will have no individuality, No freedom of thought or speech and where we will no longer be able to make what he will of our own lives through our own incentive, hard work and talent.
Beyond what I've previously mentioned, Trump has decimated and all but eliminated ISIS, a really not so awfully difficult task that Obama never attempted to do because he was too busy devising policy to oust the leaders of the moderately ruled Mideast countries that torture and kill terrorists while protecting the Christians, (can you say Egypt, Libya & Syria, not to mention giving away our victory in Iraq & supporting the harsh Mulla government of Iran) It is Muslim Communist Revolutionary Obama who is primarily responsible for setting the Mideast on fire in the hopes of helping to forman an Islamic caliphate
Trump has caused North Korea's evil leader, to suggest a meeting with Trump to work out a peaceful agreement regarding the elimination of his nukes. Something no other president has come even close to doing.
As I have clearly pointed out, your nuts if you don't think that Trump is turning out to be a far better president than Obama, who has gotten millions of people killed in several different countries, including probably hundreds of thousands of Christians, allowing ISIS to crucify, burned to death, behead, and in other ways murder them at will, doing nothing to help them. He only helps Muslims and has not even help black people here in America. (He would rather have them riled up, then helped. That's what a community organizer does to drive people to action. Communist Revolutionary wants revolution and the card carrying Communist Saul Alinsky is the father of Community Organizing)
So, please, you liberals who are reading this, explain to me what you find to justify the idea that Trump is a terrible president, keeping in mind that our aim is to elect an effective leader for the good of America, not a moral leader.
I Ask One Thing Of Anyone Who Is A Patriot, Remember What A Patriot Is
A True Patriot is going to put this country before a country like Russia, a patriot will put the best interests of our country before the interests of a country that has always been at odds with our vision of democracy and foreign affairs. This we can agree on, correct?
Forget Trump, focus on what Putin and his Russia is, that is all that matters as a priority. Putin is perhaps one of the most ruthless and brilliant dictators in history in terms of what he has and is accomplishing. His brilliance took him from head of the KGB to morphing that agency into the biggest takeover of Russia's wealth during it's transition from communism to capitalism, dictatorship to "democracy", and kept a dictator type control through all of it.
We were instrumental in breaking Russia financially, partially through proxy wars. No president until now has aided and supported Russia financially, there were reasons to keep Russia curbed, and there still are. Globally Russia is openly financing and orchestrating the demise of several other democracies. They are good at using propaganda and misinformation to divide countries, and there is solid proof that they have been solidly at work doing it to our country.
Considering that Russia is arming and supporting the side in Syria that the United States is opposing, the idea of providing Putin with military electronics (ours are better than Russia's) is treading the edge of treason and espionage. There is a reason to maintain a weapons superiority, and giving them cutting edge electronics is counter productive.
We have plenty of evidence that Russia has been very actively engaged in hacking our computer systems. Hacking and interfering with elections isn't nearly as dangerous as them having the ability to hack key infrastructure or communications that could contribute to shutting down our country. This is real, it has been lightly covered in the media, and very little has been done to aggressively increase our cyber defenses against that.
Knowing what Russia is, that it is at war with democracy, that it has highly competent hacking skills that rival ours, it is a dereliction of duty to refuse to actively prepare for cyber warfare at the highest possible level.
Once there is an awareness that Russia is a very real threat, the common sense of putting our country before Russia's interests can be the primary thing a patriot considers is the number one priority. Understanding what misinformation and propaganda works is part of seeing it for what it is when it's being used against the country. I will guarantee you that fake news and propaganda is not targeting liberals to strike fear of the evil Russia into the hearts of bleating fearful sheep. Misinformation is in play to neutralize the fear that Russia is our enemy, always has been. Now Russia is seen to have a strong leader, like being a dictator is a good thing. Putin has effectively eliminated any credible opponent that could run against him as president. He has effectively stifled the media by killing and persecuting journalists who disagree with his messages. He has lied to his people and the world about military actions used to take back countries who want a separate government and entity.
A patriot needs to understand what Russia is, and put the United States first. Anyone who is leaning towards believing Russia as a friend and ally is no patriot, they are alt patriots because they are buying into fake news and propaganda that has been designed to do exactly that. This thing where those on the hard right have been played to where they openly make statements to the effect that they would rather have someone like Putin than a democrat in the white house, is treasonous and these are no patriots. That right has come to declaring that they have no use for democracy, that anything necessary to keep control is good.
Figure out where your loyalties lie, Russia and Putin, or the United States Of America. Then figure out whether our president is maintaining the pressure and control that every president prior to him has. This is an end game for Russia, and I do not appreciate seeing our country going full cooperation towards their financial strength and well being. Exxon has been prevented from handing Putin Half a trillion cash, and financing and engineering their ability to extract the largest oil reserves in the world.
As a true patriot that has an excellent understanding of what Russia and Putin is, the threat they pose to our country, I'd hate to be in a civil war with fake patriots who have put a president who has extensive financial interests with Putin and has put Russia and his interests ahead of those of our country.
I would rather have Pence as president, at least he would have zero reasons to deviate from the strong financial controls that are in the best interests of this country. This last caving of Trump is the last straw toward needing to figure out what the hold Putin has on Trump is.
Patriots, reserve your trust of the president until you know what that is, this is not the time for blind faith.
Trump Is So Stupid That..
He tried to set a trap for a certain Muslim cleric, stupidly thinking this man would PERSONALLY travel to Colorado Springs to "save" ("liberate") me. And so for three weeks I slept on somebody's doorstep (with their permission; actually, at their bidding) AND UNDER THE PROTECTION OF THIS SAME MUSLIM CLERIC!
This is exactly the type of stupidity that makes him morally unfit to hold office.
Bet some of you other OPP posters, except those unwilling to criticize the clown, can come up with other reasons "Trump is so stupid that..."
Giuliani Joins Presidents Legal Team--the question is why...
Rudy Giuliani announced last night that he just joined Trumps legal team to negotiate an end to the Mueller investigation and he thinks it will take two weeks to complete.
Now the questions I have are how do you negotiate an end to an investigation, especially one this complex, and just how on earth do you think it will take only two weeks to complete? Just what does Giuliani think he has that Mueller wants because the last I checked a negotiation is two parts--you give me this and I will give you that. Now Giuliani does have contacts with the FBI as he demonstrated when he announced on FOX--just days before it happened--that there was going to be an October surprise involving Hillary.
So this is an interesting event but just how's he going to negotiation an end, outside of a payoff to Mueller, because I don't see what the two sides have to offer each other as part of a give and take. Now I'm not under estimating Rudy but if he thought he could negotiate an end--well why hasn't he done it before this? He is best buds with Trump after all and his best bud has been twisting by the short and curlies for close to a year. Why didn't he use his contacts in the FBI well before this--or has he and he's got the ball rolling?
Well only the future will tell but if Rudy does get this wrapped up in two weeks then he better be transparent or the explosion that is anticipated from the right will just be transferred to the left....
RIOT Police Ordered in Case Trump Fires Mueller
I pray hourly Trump Fires Mueller, Sessions, Rosenstein and all the rest of them... just Drop the Hammer, Can’t wait !
Pittsburgh Police Ordered to Have Riot Gear Ready ‘Until Further Notice’ in Case Trump Fires Mueller
by NATE CHURCH
19 Apr 2018
Pittsburgh police forces have received word of a potential large-scale protest if President Donald Trump fires Robert Mueller.
The information leads them to believe this protest will take place in Pittsburgh’s Central Business District within 24 hours of Special Counsel Mueller’s much-theorized removal. “We may be needed to assist in the event that there is a large-scale protest,” an internal e-mail warned.
“Based on this information, beginning tomorrow, April 19, 2018 all major crimes detectives are required to bring a full uniform and any issued protective equipment, riot gear, with them to work until further notice.”
WTAE-TV news reporter Marcie Cipriani tweeted a confirmation of the action by Mayor Bill Peduto himself. According to Cipriani, the mayor has called these measures strictly a matter of taking proper precautions. “You want to be precautionary, especially on something that is unprecedented in American history,” he said.
In an official statement, Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich said:
The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police receives information faily that we evaluate and prepare for if the event should occur. Events can include anything from extreme weather to potential demonstrations.
Often the events we prepare for do not occur. However, through an abundance of caution, we attempt to adequately prepare for an appropriate response.
We receive information regularly about potential events and/or threats, assess the credibility of the information and plan for a potential event. In this case, we have not assessed the credibility of the potential for disturbances, and we do not have any knowledge of the President’s decision-making process.
But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is confident the issue will never even be raised. So confident, in fact, that he struck down an attempt to protect Mueller from termination, whether or not it is approved next week by the Senate Judiciary Committee. McConnell bluntly told Fox News that “we’ll not be having this on the floor of the Senate.”
Trump himself has been anything but shy about his opinion on both the Russia investigation and Mueller himself. He has called it “corrupt” and “an attack on our country,” led by “the most biased group of people.” But he has also “agreed with the historically cooperative, disciplined approach that we have engaged in with Robert Mueller,” saying that he has “full confidence in Ty Cobb, my Special Counsel, and have been fully advised throughout each phase of this process.”
