    If someone believes that their rights come from man alone, then they should be aware or even super aware of the fragility of the rights that they actually have now. If rights are man-made, then they can be monetized, sold, bartered and bestowed upon people or special groups at a whim. Worst yet, it will seem like the natural order of things. There is also the problem of believing that those rights come from a Truth worth fighting for. If Truth is just political correctness and man-made truth, few will sacrifice to uphold it but, a fewer group still, will enthusiastically pursue what little power and advantage that is left with only concern for the power that it takes to make right.

    The school clearly needs to have an anti-bullying policy that applies to itself. Liberals don’t mind bullying really, except when the “wrong” people are bullied. They seem to always be the ones who decide right from wrong persons. One of the strongest reasons that people keep their children in public school is for the children to learn social interaction skills. Even though I dispute that as a strong enough reason to put my 11 grand children into public school, to the extent that such an excuse is true, it seems that the school would allow for some normal, real world interaction that mimics what the real world actually looks like. Schools have always sent children unprepared into the world otherwise there would be no parental stress during graduation. Today’s schools seem more apt to send out the unprepared child on many levels. As long as they are unable to engage in complex discussions of science religion and history, the tendency is more toward majoring on the world of sports and entertainment.

    This may have been a victory, of sorts, we still don’t know how many pop tart guns, finger guns, pencil guns, drawn-on-paper weapons and other imaginary weapons that had to be confiscated before they, unfortunately, missed this knife. You can’t get them all when there is no limit to where they might be.

    I hope that gun had micro-stamping technology because it is a real crime fighting tool of the future that will help the police figure out who the bad guys are. This is especially true in California.

    What causes evolution is the hatred of God and the need to deny Him. It also is a dandy way to implement socialism by attacking a church, a family and a government that maintains respect for and allegiance to the Truth.

    Her business is to be in school. You can’t just brush those demands off. The closest thing you might have to a contract is the school discipline manual. I just wonder if they could force her to press her own body weight, run a four minute mile or do some kind of iron-mam competition as an additional requirement to stay in school? Maybe they should require that students stop binge drinking or lose their right to attend?

    Sounds like the price of meat is not high enough with the drought. It seems to me that the government, during the Depression, had a program of slaughtering farm animals to raise farm income. This could be another Liberal stimulus program. How many of those turtles would equal just one cow in terms of hamburger patties? The government lies? Maybe those Indians were right about the government after all.

    How can anyone at a school say that suicide is wrong without somehow talking about the sanctity of life? Secular humanist believe in the post modern idea that right and wrong comes from man. We might remind the students that it is against man’s law to kill yourself, but they might have trouble pinning down the real reason for that since they can not talk about the real Law Giver.

    It makes you wonder if the school has WiFi and the Bible is blocked to keep the children safe.

  • April 8, 2014 at 4:53am

    The people who are worried about the glorification of suicide are the ones who don’t have a problem with euthanasia, abortion or any other inconvenient form of human life. I think Pope Paul II called this crowd the “Culture of Death.”

    It must have been too cold to put a fire hose on them.

    This is a natural and logical consequence of the school trying to be the parent. The pain and confusion of a young person when suicide comes close to home would have been handled, mostly at home and in the church. Since these two institutions are so degraded by secular humanism, the school is the natural default organization or institution on which the student leans. The school unfortunately is of no assistance because of its policy that pretends to prevent further suicides. The school, in fact, could engage in a complicated and customized discussion of the problem of suicide for fear of offending the atheist.

    Where can you get one of these cell phones that actually works as a cell phone and a gun? Actually, I think that if the cell phone actually works, it is probably not a gun too.

    I wonder how many of those “illegal” guns were used in self defense and have not yet been returned to their rightful owners because they are held as evidence for a long drawn out, “pending” investigation? I wonder how many of those guns were confiscated after a serious traffic accident? The owner was not able to retain possession because he was shipped to the hospital. I honestly don’t think that the right to carry in Chicago has been in force long enough to see a perceptible blip on the radar screen, especially since the training required is so extensive and expensive. The fraction of concealed carry holders has to be really low right now. The war on concealed carry will, no doubt, carry on as over regulation plus making ownership and protecting yourself as expensive as possible. All of this will be helped along with phoney statistics. I remember when Florida enacted concealed carry. People went nuts and they claimed that things would be so bad, like the wild, wild west, that Florida would be called the GUNshine state.

    The secular humanist have control of the government and are pulling all of the levers to punish and control people who do not believe in their religion. It is little changed from the time in England where the king or Bloody Mary took sides and used the power of the state to enforce the favored religion of the monarch.

  • April 5, 2014 at 5:10pm

    That was my first thought too. It seems like a violation of the First Amendment is afoot here under color of law. The Republican limp-wristed toads in my state are all for common core, including the governor down to my state representative. They seem to think that the only thing going on is standard setting. When are they going to set uncommon standards and be getting uncommonly good results?

    What about double jeopardy, since the government already had a chance to seize the stuff as he went through customs? No wonder the Pope keeps his stuff out of the US. The FBI might seize a piece of the ark or some nails from the cross.

    They would never be satisfied, even if it shot nerf bullets that carried a recording of an apology to the target. Only when society looks a lot like jail, with only the authorized people having weapons, will they be satisfied.

    The numbers do not matter because you have to sign up or pay a fine. They win either way, even if you can not afford the deductibles and co-pays. When the insurance companies fail to take in what they need to operate, another bailout will be devised to save the program and to gain more congratulations for doing “the right thing” for the masses, unlike the other party that would have let Granny die. The cycle of failure and rescue has worked in the past for student loan programs, social security, the transportation fund and the housing debacle with NINJA loans( No Income-No Job Applicants.) Why change now?

    PERIOD is an acronym for Provided Enough Rich Individuals Overpay Dramatically. It is intended to refer to the Obamacare law, not gun control laws. When used in gun control conversations, the Acronym means Possessions Evoking Rage In Our Dominion.
