This is why Gates’ work is soooo important. Real history from real individuals is always more palpable and complex than the identity politics the left would have us embrace.
The heroes of our family’s stories can reaffirm our stock and pride in the American experiment.

Dustin’s grandfather came over as a young man, raised a family, then went back to Russia to save his father. His family in Chicago pleaded with him not to go. He was killed for giving bribes (for information about his father) to the forerunners of the KGB. After he was killed, his father tried to gain information from bribes and was killed. The mother was imprisoned when she tried to get information, but she survived. When she landed in Argentina, one of her extremities (her arm) was amputated. She finally made it to her relatives in Chicago and live a few, presumably good years surrounded by her family.

The only way to stall the progression of this kind of behavior is to sue the parents, sue the school district, sue the kids. Let it be known in your school that you will sue at any first time instance that your child is molested/beaten or threatened with hate speech, and when your parental authority is not respected in such situations.
Zero tolerance for bad behavior swings both ways.

the other flags are from the anarchist movements, so you can’t even hope that one of the players was named ‘Che’.

Yes. In this zero tolerance era, the only way to protect your kids from bullying is to make the school and bully pay for their violence and the victim’s education.
If a worker can sue an employer and a coworker for ‘creating a hostile working environment’, then families should use the this precedence to sue families and schools to create a non hostile environment for children.

Because ‘hot ones’ don’t work that hard, except on themselves. You are passing by many young women every day, but you are looking for the exterior that hollyweird has sold you. Noone can do the ‘leg’ work for you. Have your standards, take good risks to meet someone, and look or someone who is compatible with your worldview and long term goals.
Wish that were the case. Even the bland, mediocre women I'm encountering in real life seem to be self possessed and entitlement minded.
Hopefully for GenX here, there are still some good ones left, but using "not gorgeous" as a gauge is no longer applicable. It was about 20 years ago, today after the world of social media provides every mediocrity with a thousand "Likes" after every picture she posts, not so much. Wish it weren't so.

The best revenge is living happily and well.
Don’t just ‘get on with it’. Heal yourself, heal your family and forgive the offender.
Only then is your revenge complete.

Tell that to the Seal team Six mourners when their helicopter was gunned down in April 2011.

That’s the way of dictators.

How about teaching the kids to be compassionate and caring. The more you role play bullying, the more bullying you will get. The more you teach kids to defend each other, band against bullies, care for the hurt, and heal the pains, the more compassionate a society we will have.
Instead you just teach them to be victims, not advocates and healers.

McConnell is with the Paul/Cruz coalition……He gets it! Don’t listen to those who want to get rid of the craftiest foil to Harry Reid.

During her ‘Should Americans Fear Islam’, Anjem Choudary said that the black flag of Jihad would fly over the white house (You Tube–Part 2–time 12:52)………
In trying to disprove GB’s position on militant Islam/Islamofacism/Salifism–or whatever you want to call it–wrong, Choudary blew her agenda to smithereens.
Watch the whole thing…..It’s the best thing Amanpour did.

Wanna bet that guy had some training?
This gives me hope that even if they try to disarm all vets, they will not succeed.

Teach your children your values and some marketable skills EARLY. Read Zinn and learn your family and local history first, so you can combat the indoctrination every day. Then, be an active participant in the college choice and career trajectory. No one else will offer real, marketable skill building alternatives to your young adult..
CSU has a new normal of large, out of control parties. So far, since these soirees are off campus, and the school has not taken any disciplinary action. Inaction is a mistake on the CSU administration’s part.
But, this manic partying is not so much indoctrination as a nihilistic reaction to their disappearing opportunities, similar to the Great Gatsby. It’s the stupid student response to gutted, overpriced education in a market where 50% of grads are unemployed or underemployed.

They — Weatherman Underground — DIDN’T win the moral war…..They made it fashionable, like Tim Leary made the drug culture fashionable, to turn on the society that nurtured them…….And what made their underground years NOT so bad was probably Ayers’ daddy’s fortune from GE.
My heart broke when Breitbart died before he could expose these folks for who they are: spoiled children who used daddy’s money to throw bombs instead of temper tantrums and hide from the consequences of their actions in a 11 year, daddy funded time out.

Wouldn’t we prevent many more shootings by just banning psychotropic drugs for the under 21 crowd? At least let their brains develop before big pharma begins to alter their brains permanently.
Also, we need to develop a screening test for these drugs, since many suicides are suspected to be an allergic reaction to anti-depressants.
And, while I’m at it, why can’t we just stick to Occupational Therapy to cure PTSD, just like the field was developed to handle all those with WWI shell shock and WWII battle fatigue?
