It WASN’T uncommon. Past tense. It’s my understanding that with Common Core so much more time is taken to cover each math concept that no student can possibly make it to algebra before 9th grade, and no students ever reach the level where they could take calculus in high school, AP or not.

David Green: Is he a person, or…. not? If his corporation has to provide abortifacients, is that on violating his right?

Heavy sigh…… even THE BLAZE is misrepresenting Hobby Lobby’s case as being about contraception. It is NOT ABOUT CONTRACEPTION! IT IS ABOUT ABORTIFACIENTS!! THEIR INSURANCE ALREADY COVERS NEARLY EVERY METHOD OF BIRTH CONTROL! If even the Blaze can’t get it right, the misinformation wall is complete.
Any misrepresentation is on the part of the Hobby Lobby supporters. There are no abortifacients involved here. There's no scientific or medical basis for the determination that the BC methods here are abortifacients.
Also, providing insurance coverage is not paying for abortions. It is paying for insurance.

One question: what do we do with aborted babies in the US? Is it better than this? Or worse? Is a garbage bag full of human bodies in a landfill a better picture? Is that what happens to abortion clinic garbage? Do hospitals in large cities have their medical waste incinerated? What do you think?

Cosmos – exactly. In mentioning this story last night Mark Levin brought up the fact that most of us don’t know what is happening to aborted babies in the US and we don’t even know who to ask. I’ve heard of organizations that “steal” the trash (yes, in trash bags….) from abortion clinics and have funerals for the babies.

@Looking for what? The story is from the Telegraph. Maybe YOU saw it in Infowars, but that isn’t the source. Not everybody is as gullible as you seem to think they are.

This sort of confusing math problem is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the problems with Common Core. I read an article earlier today about teachers union members learning at an Austin, TX conference about indoctrinating math students into leftwing political agendas. And it just goes on and on and on….

Private schools have to use textbooks or other teaching materials created by the same publishers that provide them to the public schools—meeting Common Core standards. Not a solution. Even homeschooling is only a partial solution, because if your homeschooled kid wants to take a standardized test to get into college…. guess what? Common Core standards. The ONLY solution is to walk back Common Core everywhere it has been instituted. And that ain’t gonna be easy, folks. In Wisconsin the REPUBLICAN chairs of the education committees are the biggest proponents of Common Core and refuse to release anti-common core legislation from committee. We are fighting both sides of the aisle on this one.
You're insane. Private schools don't follow any of that garbage. Maybe in your state this is a true statement. This is not so in Texas.
Private schools opt to get text books that haven't change the "constitution" or developed new and different ways to change math so they can dumb it down to the lowest denominator. Teaching is about getting kids to comprehends math, reading etc, as quickly as possible so they can move on to more sophisticated levels...this will never happen when you have moronic teachers and administrators agreeing to this total destruction of what has always worked well and made some of our children the most educated in the world....but not any more!
Luckily, here in Texas, we don't have Common Core. Gov Perry did us a huge favor by refusing that mess. BUT, we do have C-SCOPE (CC's 2nd cousin)...and we are in the process of weeding it out! Contact your reps in Austin & tell them C-SCOPE needs to 100% go away--ASAP.
A big problem is, they just changed the SAT's to reflect a Common Core education. They're making it so that its not going to matter where you get your education--you'll have to be used to CC methods & madness or you won't get into college. BUT COLLEGE IS NOT A PREREQUISITE FOR A GOOD LIFE!

Ever heard of a Nativity scene? You know….. a stable, a manger, a baby, shepherds, three wise men, angels…..?
Can't have a nativity scene in Washington, D.C. They don't have three wise men or any virgins there. They do, however, have plenty of donkeys and mules.

I’m from Oshkosh area. There is truth in what you say. Stores near entrances to the freeway from Chicago get hit with grab ‘n go shoplifters (if you can call hundreds of dollars worth of bulky stuff simply shoplifting) all the time.

Would be nice, but most places, like Wal-Mart, won’t even allow red kettles inside their building (not even between the outer and inner doors where the security photo was taken). Much less have clerks involved in collecting the money. Their excuse: everybody else will want them to do that. They have a pet charity year around pretty much (Children’s something or other. I forget the name) that they collect for at the register, and that’s it.
As I said in an earlier post, STAND YOUR GROUND ON YOUR BELIEFS. If you feel Wal-Mart is wrong in not allowing the red kettles inside their doors, THEN STOP SHOPPING THERE AND TELL THEM WHY. You must tell them why or they won't know, just like the Duck Dynasty fiasco. Walk in and tell the person at the Service counter WHY.
People who don't really feel strongly (convicted) about anything will always be the ones who complain the most and then do nothing about it.
STAND YOUR GROUND. TELL THEM WHY AND THEN STOP SUPPORTING THEM. Seems very simple to me. When Wal-Mart, a few years back, stopped selling guns because the left pressured them, their business fell off. NOW, THEY SELL GUNS, shotguns and rifles and other accessories. My Wal-Mart store here, allows the kettle inside the door, but not in the store and that is fine with me because it is better for the kettle person to stay warmer and to get people's attention better. Because of this, I WILL SUPPORT THIS PARTICULAR WAL-MART.
SEE THE DIFFERENCE YET PEOPLE?
You all talk and talk and joke and jest and complain, but I will just bet none of you, or MOST OF YOU WILL NEVER STAND YOUR GROUND ON ANYTHING - YOU JUST COMPLAIN AND JOKE ABOUT THESE ISSUES.
THAT MAKES YOU NO BETTER THAN THE LEFTISTS CAUSE I HAVE KNOWN LEFTIST VEGANS THAT SCREAM AND YELL ABOUT EATING MEAT, AND THEN I HAVE CAUGHT THEM IN RESTAURANTS EATING MEAT. They are shocked when they see me. HYPOCRITES.
WHAT ARE YOU?
A few years ago, Target rejected the appeal of the Salvation Army to set up kettles outside their stores. When they made this decision, there was a backlash from many of their customers, and quickly Sam's Club, and WalMart expanded their access for Salvation Army to help make up the loss. Then corporately WalMart gave a large donation.
There are two Walmarts in this Texas town and both allow the Salvation Army to have the kettle and bell ringers.
There are two Walmart's in this Texas town and there are Salvation Army kettles and Bell Ringers at both.

It’s Wisconsin. It’s winter. He’s headed out the door. Duh. It would NOT work to try to profile people wearing hoodies in Wisconsin in winter, even indoors.

It was a joke. Sheesh.

Which religious beliefs would that be, Mr. 116? The Religion of Zombies, or maybe the Religion of CAFE standards?

Could somebody please get Glenn to stop being so sloppy in his recounting on his radio show of the facts of stories on The Blaze? He keeps talking about AP “wiretapping”. The phones were NOT TAPPED. The phone records were obtained (illegally), with info on all incoming and outgoing calls as far as time, length, and who to or from. But phones were NOT tapped. He’s guilty of doing this with a lot of stories. It’s like the accuracy is left up to the people at the Blaze, but he can just say on the radio whatever version of the “facts” of those hastily-read stories he wants.
May 15, 2013 at 10:35am
Glenn has specifically said nothing ending in “gate”.

I totally agree that there is something wrong. I often suspect though, that the results google returns have a bias to them. Intentional or unintentional I’m not sure, but I suspect the former.
