I like how Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Mrs Gingrich have turned learning history into books but I also enjoy other ideas much like turning them into TV shows or even games, like historicalconquest.com. They have made history into a game that is an alternative to Yu-Gi-Oh, Pokemon, or Magic, like I use to play. The game is played much like the old board game of Risk, yet instead of playing with nameless faceless figures or make-believe characters, you play with Abraham Lincoln, George Washing, Nikola Tesla, and even Genghis Khan, and learn while you play.
There are so many interesting ways to learn history and we should start pushing away from lectures and giving kids something fun to enjoy.

I really feel sorry for the State of Alaska, who I work for. They are right now trying to get HealthCare.gov’s contractor, CGI, to build them an accounting and procurement piece of software and we are having a heck of a time trying to get it designed. They are almost incompetent.
Yeh, they also took Hawaii for a ride to, and bilked them for a bunch of money, what did Hawaii get, computer software that don't work.

You would think she would know better. She should know through her own family geneology. You would think she would learn from the past and how the left is trying to destroy our societies and our families and this is exactly how they do it. Through our compassion.
We need to take back America, the best way to do this is by teaching our kids about the past. We need to teach our youth principles that great this nation, not those that are destroying it.
You know that is exactly what MSNBC’s Al Sharpton ( http://www.thedailycandidate.com/video/2013/apr/sharpton_bombers_why.html ) and the Bomber’s Mom is saying, complete set up, really you have to believe us… Muslim extremists wouldn’t do this. Radicalizing young people is one thing but they are those that committed the crime, whether someone paid them to do it or they did it themselves.
Well I can pretty much assure you Libertarians will side with the left on this one. Face it the only thing you know is what the media, politicians and police have told you on TV, and all of these entities are habitual liars, no? I have more questions than answers. Mainly surrounding the CRAFT team they caught on film all over the area. Sorry, when I see mercenaries, which is what they are, running around an event like this, something doesn't sit right with me. I want to know who funded them, what they were doing there, and why these crack troops didn't see the bombers place the bomb 10 feet away from them in the first place. Something stinks about this, especially when Cuomo comes out afterwards and calls the martial law "the new normal", BS searches by militarized police in people's homes without warrants, MP's checking people's papers and now depriving someone of the miranda rights? All too convenient for the statists.
Conservative? Eric Holder made this call
Since when is Holder a conservative? Since when are liberals constitutionalist? MSNBC is in an alternate universe.
"Mainly surrounding the CRAFT team they caught on film all over the area. Sorry, when I see mercenaries, which is what they are..."
Private security companies have been assisting LE there for years at major events like these. Don't let your Infowars.com lead you too far astray...
I thought you guys liked paid mercenaries instead of a standing Army??
@Just. I am a Libertarian...I side with the constitution...Something you need to go read.
LMAO.... A so-called Libertarian calling out a misguided Ayn Rand disciple... both former pipe smokers and pipe layers for RP...
The guy was seriously wounded and from all reports in no condition to answer questions. Prietty sure when you read the miranda rights, the guy your reading them to has to understand them and remember them been read to him. Prietty sure when he is able to talk and they decide to do so they will read him his rights if applicable.
JUSTANGRY -- Like DOGGY, I am a libertarian. I side with the Constitution.
Apparently, just like the left, the right now believes they can pick and choose when the Constitution applies.
BruceP, Baddoggy, I was responding to the original poster who said that the left was coming out against Obama for not giving this guy his rights as per the Constitution. I agree that he should be given his day court and extended his 5th amendment rights as per the Constitution. I'm appalled that the 9K militarized police and MP's (violating posse comitatus) were trampling on the Constitution in their search for the bad guy.
@Time2 Are you ready to discuss your TWO medals above your boot camp national defense you earned in lifer career yet, collectivist poser engineer? We got more than that in one deployment. And I guarantee to you that my squadron took out more enemy/targets in one deployment than all of your commands put together... BOY. Dumbass statists that exaggerate their military service make me sick. So gfys. C*m drunk lifer beta male. I'll listen to you when I want to learn how to drive bulldozer. Hear me now?
LOL @ JUSTANGRY. I know the avatar is small, but I wouldn't expect you to know what at least 2 of those ribbons are for anyways young man. That's for members of the "Old Reliables" to relate to, not some blue water swabby who likes to insult the Military because he couldn't cut the hard work and who hasn't a clue that Ron Paul's closest Paleolibertarian associates think the Constitution is JUST a statist piece of paper. Maybe BAD and Bruce P are right about you eh?
Fastfacts brings up a good point. This is another example of how if the republicans actually believed in the constitution, they would be out-flanking the democrat president when it comes to civil liberties....But instead, the republican party takes the emotional route and argues that this guy should be put to death immediately - which is more unconstitutional than not reading him miranda rights
JUSTANGRY -- I realize that, I was responding to the idea we Libertarians are siding with the liberals on this. No, we side with the Constitution...it just happens this time the liberals happen to be siding with us.
Just. LOL the kid should know his rights. I personally would not say anything, other than to talk to my lawyer. Time 2 is lonely he needs all the friends he can git :)
The progs and Time2 like police states
Pfft! I'm sure my squadron killed more enemy than all of your commands combined during your day as well. Maybe with one bomb. They won the Battle E in 61 and 62, and were back in 66 and 67. We won it in 91. Since 1942 they've won the Battle E 10 times. In 1999 they were awarded the Estocin Award for being the best strike fighter squadron in the Navy. It's a historic unit. There's nothing you can say to put me down, Engineer. Just because you're carrying a M16 while pouring cement, doesn't make you badass. You aren't even the best unit in your own branch of the service. Green Berets, Paratroopers all went in before you. LOL
Just and Time2- I know you guys like showing off your military records and maybe back then I would have been happy to join but there is nothing honorable about joining a system that is turning our fighters into pansy asses (go Red Foreman) by using social experiments and progressive ways to "feminize" our military. I want nothing of it. I do not want want to be a part of a system that lowers our military in the world. I want to be part of the best not a social experiment.

The House Republicans came to the floor yesterday to speak out against the medias absence from covering this trial. They spoke of the horrors Gosnell did to women and the pain that he caused both mother and child. Here is one, the best (worst) speech on the floor of the House speaking out against the media for their inactivity. The rest of the videos are on americanparchment.com: http://www.thedailycandidate.com/video/2013/apr/perry_kermit_abortion.html
So they are all about taking away our freedoms. Piers isn’t a US Natural Born Citizen so I can understand this lack of American exceptionalism and the freedoms we enjoy, he is bringing the UK to America. But as for Oprah, I am ashamed of you trying to take away more freedoms. If you guys don’t like it here, get out.
Not me .. but I can't wait to hear the cries of the Obama low info voters ... when they find out it isn't free and it isn't "care".
right there with you CATB, especially after I have been railing on my increased costs since '09; they have doubled and the low info voters not giving a damn. I don't have a premium tied to an employer, I am my own and it's so expensive!!!! Can't wait for that Karma Train to come choo chooing in my town. FORWARD! LOL Dolts! I warned them!!!!
Yes HONOR I buy my own individual policy for only me and it has gone up over $1200 per year in just the last two ... got another increase notice last week.
Not me, I cant wait for liberals and the uninformed to start complainig, I have a truckload of "I TOLD YOU SO's" waiting for them!!
