Funny, I got the complete opposite from this. I thought it was meant to remove any mental conditioning of “You’re suppressed” that the feminist talking heads may have brainwashed into our women. The point is, our COUNTRY and its LAWS do not support suppression of women. Individuals here in the US have every opportunity to make of themselves what they wish, and everyone will have their own obstacles. Gender laws will not be one of them.

Preach on, sister! Nothing and nobody hold me back but myself. This idea that tearing down someone else can lift you up is not just found with feminists- its everywhere- race baiting, income disparity, popularity contests, religion, etc. Take responsibility for who you are and make it happen, don’t sit around blaming others for what you don’t have.

I’m pretty sure the sign was intended to “tick off” gun owners. He has every right to disenfranchise an entire segment of his customer base.
I wonder how long before his pub is robbed at gun-point and no one's there to help. The police will show up with their guns well after to clean-up and take a report. We all know their job is not to protect. It's to report.

Coincidentally, I just received an LP of “Miami Vice” last night. Such sweet, sweet, neon pink.

I’m with outlaw. Why in the world do we think that this bunch of oath-breakers would even notice new amendments? Who is going to enforce these new standards? We would actually have to have a Justice Department interested in justice, and politicians who care more about the Constitution that their own careers.
The real solution is nullification, the remedy put in place by the founders from the beginning. If a federal law or regulation is unconstitutional, states do not have to recognize it. Sure, they may not get the bribe money from Uncle Sam, but freedom and prosperity are far more lucrative.

True. The only political movement that has had any degree of success at turning back tyranny is the nullification movement. Of course, it gets little to no press or funding, since there is not a lot of money to be made in the freedom industry. Please check out the Tenth Amendment Center. Every person on this site should be supporting it- pure constitution- nothing more or less.

Zapparules makes an excellent point. The push for big government in schools from both the right and left. For different reasons, but end result is the same- they both want more money for public schools. The right for actual education, which they naively believe can still happen in public schools (many driven by the unconscious guilt that they might actually be sending their children to kiddie prison so they can have more time for work or play). The left wants the money for more indoctrination and benefits for unions.
The hard, bitter truth for both sides is that as long as public schools are funded by taxpayer dollars, all taxpayers (and by default their political reps) get a direct say in its operations. If the stakeholders (students and parents) want to have exclusive decision-making, they need to be the exclusive funders. Stop rationalizing legal plunder on the entire community to subsidize the education of kids that are not their responsibility.
Please see Sheldon Richman’s “Separation of School and State” for the full story.
Of course, if they choose to do away with Common Core, the Fed's will jump down their case and ensure all kinds of problems come their way.
And if you like your Doctor or your Health plan you can keep that too.........
What he's not sharing is the fine print about "Completely free to discard common core"
1. You can kiss any extra Gov. Money away you might need.
2. The NSA will be on your devices looking for things to attack you with
3. The EPA will be visiting your state more frequently
4. The IRS will be auditing your local Gov. and citizens more
5. You will have to bake cakes for Gays
Regardless of whether states lose federal money the should still dump Rotten Core. The feds shouldn't be giving money to states for education. The money should still be in our pockets since it's not the feds dollar to give. But show me a politician that doesn't believe tax dollars are theirs to spend and I'll show you a..............I got nothing, it's doesn't exist.
Interesting how so many on the Right who want to see less or no govt and that also includes less or no (collecting and) spending of tax payer money - all of a sudden seem to be complaining here that is CC is pushed out by a state that state won't receive govt funds.
So many of you complain about govt funding - but then now want to complain when govt possibly withholds funding.
Could you talk out of both sides of your mouths any more than that?
He did say, "we want to work with them". Wonder what exactly that means? Let's see does it mean we will twist their arms till they agree to it???
However, losing out on federal funding is something that concerns Tennessee House Speaker Beth Harwell.
Who cares about the kids, just give us the Damn money!!!
There are conditions attached to all federal action toward states. In this case it is $Money.
"We are concerned about losing federal money if we choose not to go forward. But the legislature has concerns about whether this is a truly tested program.”
Now take the case of the districts that accepted stimulus money. They have already been mandated to the core. Never trust this Duncan fellow.
do you think this chicago thug would force two children, Claire and Ryan into common core curricula?
This is a "Junk" liberal teaching program, as already proven by our students failure to keep up with sub-standard countries, and the only way this administration can get the states to implement it is by bribing them with monetary subsidies. They should walk from the money for the sake of the children and the future of this country.
IMHO The only educational funding states should get from the feds is vouchers that could be used at any school the parents want to send their children. If public schools took the same vouchers then the ones that didn't perform would disappear and good ones would grow.
Arne Duncan graduated from the School of Barack Hussein Obama, where Arne learned the chief strategy- Lie Prolifically, and then lie some more.
States that have been attempting to dump Common Core, like Georgia, which was told they have to give back the stimulus money they received in 2010 when Georgia adopted Common Core, before the standards were yet released by the creators of Common Core in Washington, D.C.( National Governors Association, Chief Council of State School Officers, and Achieve, Inc.( Billy Boy Gates) ).
There is a dump Common Core bill in Ohio, where Governor Kasich (R.), is trying to take a middle ground ( There is no middle ground ), and both the chairman of the education committee in the Ohio House ( a Republican) and the chairman of the education committee in the Ohio Senate ( also a Republican) are sitting on the bill and refusing to bring it to the floor).
Dear Arne Duncan, once again is not being truthful for a number of reasons:
1. Race to the Top( RttT) is geared to the acceptance of Common Core.
2. The SAT, college board tests is already geared to the Common Core standards, and the ACT is allegedly in the process of changing also.
3. The text book companies like Pearson(world's largest), Houghton Mifflin, McGraw. Prentice, etc., many of whom have been bought up by Pearson,
are all switching to Common Core.
4. The biometric data, which is part of RttT and Common Core are designed to pigeon hole and zombieize your children.
We need to find a way to stop paying federal taxes to the government for things we as states don't want. If we don't want Common corruption we should not be sending any money for education and keep it in our states. If we don't want the federal government to enforce borders we should be able to keep that money and we spend it on protecting borders. If we don't want Obama don't care we should be able to not send money to the federal government and keep it in our states and come up with our own insurance.
Well considering Beth Harwell is is prog RINO who "loves her" some fed $$ and will do almost anything to get it.....
All the more reason to repeal the 16th & 17th amendments - I am pretty sick and tired of paying income tax to support the Calif surfer dude.
I am past sick and tired of paying for too many other lazy bums too. When did taxes and welfare become equated with charity?
Since less than 30 cents of every dollar taken by the Fed Govt actually end up helping the person intended to be helped and 70 cents go to admin costs, if any private charity operated within those margins, it would be considered to be a fraud.
Most real charities at least operate in the opposite 70 cents go to those actually needing the help and 30 cents to admin.
If Calif wants surfer bums then the good people of Calif should support those bums. There is no reason why - I in Tennessee should have to do so.
If left to our own devices - and not needing to try to bring home the bacon (or to bring home at least some of the income confiscated from Tennesseans by the Fed )- we in Tennessee would be much better off and have more income to dispose of as we see fit and to support those true charities that actually help people
And with that being said - the best way to lift someone can get out of poverty is to get a job
What I want to know is what disatified states can do with the Secretary of Education Arne Duncan?

That is where I’m at. No conspiracy- just a natural pattern that reflects things around corners from our view.

It would not need to be perfect. What were the odds for 9/11?

All answers have been previously posted. Nevertheless, you assumption about the depressurization is partly correct- the pressure in the cockpit is not a big deal- both the pilot and/or accomplices could have gear for that. The terrible part is that the passengers would not go to sleep, they would be instantly killed at that altitude.

One life, maybe. But getting ransoms for groups or for every individual is a lot of work and risk. Plus, their collective worth is not enough to buy an aircraft that can be disguised and then used as an EMP.

I don’t think anyone is suggesting that it was “snuck” past anyone. More like it was welcomed by someone.
