    Humans are flawed so I do not expect utopia. But I do think I’ll get better.

    Oh one more important thing… I also don’t let my kids watch much TV but particularly nothing on Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, and the worst of the bunch, The Disney Channel – as the writing teams for those networks apparently study values decent parents want to teach their kids, and then show kids the exact opposite.

    I’m teaching my kids how they can communicate without using any profanity unlike youtube, facebook, or twitter where people are incapable of speaking/writing a seven word sentence without seven profanities in it. I’m teaching my kids the importance of public courtesy, proper use of English, how to focus, and think critically. Though our family does not watch ‘Reality’ TV, I do occasionally use such TV Shows as a teaching tool for how NOT to be. We go to church and talk with each other about God and the Bible so they know where they came from and what is expected of them. I’ve finally gotten them out of the public school system this year and into a private school… it was a long 4 year road to get to this point and there is still much to sacrifice to keep this a reality. I’m sure there are millions more just like me in America – trying to make sure the next generation will be better people. My generation has a lot in the way of material things, but wow are we one screwed up generation – so much so in fact, we have brought this country to its knees.

    I understand… my comment wasn’t directly related to this specific article but relating more to the chaos of public schools in general.

    It’s a struggle but my family is FINALLY going to practice what it preaches as we begin the coming school year with our two boys. They are both officially enrolled in a PRIVATE school. It is a great financial sacrifice for us and we will have to go without many other things. But finally, I will have at least some peace of mind that there’s a lot of this kind of insanity going on with the public schools that I no longer need to worry about… though I will still be alert and on the lookout even with the private school… but hoping for better.

    The bit of logic that Matthew Woessner points out is lost on liberals who get the answer, ‘racist’ when adding 2+2.

    Much like the US Dollar, anything ‘Harvard’ had a lot more value to it decades ago. Not so much anymore.

    He should focus on Britain’s problems. 1/6th of Brits identify with Hamas. Limited practice of Sharia is allowed. Anti-Semitism is on the rise. The Brits are losing their culture to muslims. So there is plenty for this guy to worry about at home.

  • August 27, 2014 at 4:01am

    I always find it hilarious how muslims are offended by just about everything when considering their countries of origin and how they fled from there to here. I guess all the memories of being dehumanized and controlled by jihadists and sharia with physical harm and death gets forgotten the moment they set foot here. One would think that all these non-extremist muslims would be devout ‘live and let live’ advocates.

    Liberals always frown on the ‘rich guy.’ But I have news for liberals. The liberal ‘anything goes’ lifestyle is an expensive one.

    Promiscuity leads to unplanned pregnancy. Children are expensive to raise, that is if you don’t abort them. Child rearing with multiple baby-mommas and baby-dads also adds to costs. Choosing to goof off throughout your K-12 taxpayer funded education is an expensive waste of money. That many need means-tested entitlements… food subsidies, housing subsidies, education subsidies, childcare subsidies… all super expensive.

    So the next time frowning Joe-liberal waggles an angry fore-finger at Mr. ‘rich guy’ who might be able to afford that nice house, car, or vacation, Joe might want to take into consideration the 10… 20… 30… years of choices that so-called, ‘rich guy’ made… like getting educated, NOT making 5 kids with 5 different people before the age of 25, working 60+ hours a week instead of smoking weed, partying, and hanging out at one protest or another.

    It’s called postponing gratification… something Joe-Liberal could learn about in any number of college NON-liberal arts 101 classes…

    “…the IRS has not admitted this because they say it would be too hard to dig them out of these backed up files.”

    So if I ever get audited by the IRS and I can’t find some records, first I’ll say my hard drive crashed. If that doesn’t work, I’ll say that my backup system only keeps backups for 6 months. If that doesn’t work, I’ll just shrug and say, ‘well actually my files are backed up entirely, it’s just too hard for me to go and extract the records I need from the available backups.”

    They are the royal government masters. We are the peasants.

    Wait a minute. Isn’t this the same company that just a few months ago promoted the left’s current cause celeb, ‘homosexuality’ with the gay whopper or some such? But now they want to avoid high corporate taxes that exist largely as a result of the left’s push for a gargantuan sized government? Really? Talk about hypocrisy…

  • [1] August 27, 2014 at 2:54am

    So many people on the left are yapping about how we need to do something forceful and violent to ISIS while here they insist that guns=bad in all circumstances.

    Maybe they should set up ‘No Gun’ zone signs around Iraq and Syria. Or ‘No IED’ zone signs. Or ‘No Beheading’ signs. Or maybe they could put up wooden posts with whistles so that if you’re about to be beheaded you can blow on the whistle.

    “…since the president is legally required by the U.S. Constitution to have all legally binding treaties approved by a two-thirds majority of the Senate.”

    As if that pesky old Constitution is going to get in the way of this or anything else this president who would be king wants to do.

    Now that the U.S. is “strongly concerned” I’m positive putin is losing sleep…

  • [2] August 23, 2014 at 8:38pm

    Liberals don’t pay attention to the dirty details of the policies they worship. Liberals are great with quips, sound bites, bumper stickers, and calling people names. But information that takes more than a few seconds to digest gets in the way of partying or the kardashian show they’re watching. But make no mistake, they’re the ‘cool kids’ right now… for now…

  • [3] August 23, 2014 at 8:28pm

    But… but… tickets aren’t about money, they’re about keeping us ‘safe.’

    Every time a gay issue comes up, they add another letter to their acronym. It was LGB. Then LGBT. Now I see it’s LGBTQ. Next week is it going to be LGBTQYSJTXMZ? Stay tuned…

  • [9] August 14, 2014 at 8:18pm

    The left is only good at quips and shallow sound bites.

  • [1] August 12, 2014 at 3:06pm

    As a parent I would NEVER have done something like that. We have to think about other people when we’re in public. All of this mother’s considerations were from her point of view only. There was another option… she could have taken the infant to her car or even just outside if she had no car there. But to change the baby on the table, that’s narcissism for you.
