And of course the obvious point I forgot to make: when you get down to it, any type of education trying to shape moral values and behaviour is technically indoctrination. You are trying to get the next generation to follow the same moral and behavioural rules as your generation had. A perfectly good and healthy thing to do, because people should learn from the experiences from the generations before them. But we also mustn't enforce these rules too closely without allowing new ideas and philosophies to influence the evolution of our species. Because stagnation has historically always lead to the decline of technology, peace, happiness and cultural development. It is the rot of an empire collapsing in on itself.
Watching this reminded me of something I saw on another site.
"I’ve been observing my local media channels: ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, and the incredible emboldenment of their reporters to refuse to report–and scoff at those who would challenge them–any news that does not fit their narrative. They no longer hide it, they’ve talked on camera about their plans to refuse to cover events. NBC Chicago reporters have now, multiple times, exposed themselves without fear. For who will report it?
If you plan to write your congressman or attend a townhall meeting, consider calling out your local t.v. station instead. Write a letter to the editor describing their actions rather than a politician’s.
The mainstream media has successfully softened the environment; the politicians we elect and the decisions they make are just manifestations of a media-indoctrinated culture.
Let’s make the word of 2013: Insurrection. (Legal, of course.)
Insurrection against the local media
Insurrection against the teachers union and their stranglehold over the next generation
Insurrection against keeping quiet at the dinner table or at your church
Insurrection against the elements that no longer keep quiet about their desire to destroy America, and more important, the limits America was founded to restrict against its government.
If we don’t insurrect (legally) in 2013, emboldenment will be outshone by persecution, of which we who support freedom and America have already had a taste."
I watched the whole press conference and within an hour the were headlines showing up on facebook , hack jobs ! Every story was the same NRA's only answer More guns ! or something to that effect . I tried to give them the truth posting links to the conference so they could hear what was really said . But that only lead to some nasty comments !
Proving what the NRA said ( paraphrasing ) There are those who will put their political prejudice before the truth .
I do not know what is so shocking about guards in all schools. We already have SROs(School Resourse Officers ie armed Police Officers) in all the middle and high schools in the town where my kids went to high school. Just add them to the elementary schools. Every time the county tried to cut funds for these officers there was such an uproar they always found the money to keep them there. Wake-up to the left crying foul for something that has been going on for years in lots of schools across the country. Oh and by the way some of them actually lived on campus.
I should have gone to alternet before. Speaking more about Scapegoating - how about these headlines. a) Jesus was a Palestinian. b) Does the Bible make Americans violent ?
Then there is a rant about how the real fighters against tyranny are reporters and human rights types from europe, and 2 commie reporters who brought down Nixon. Oh - another scapegoat for the Left. It ends with "your stupid game prevents us from ending a threat to public safety." ummm that would be confiscation. Like I said - just like Hitler.
I know why they don't like the second amendment. It dawns on them that we already figured them out, and thwarted their little totalitarian tendencies, and did it 200 years ago. We outfoxed them and they just can not stand it. It drives them to extreems - as if they were not there already.
Just like Hitler, they state their aims in what they write.
speaking of crazy, remember what we heard regarding Scapegoating ? What is on TV these days is a textbook example of scapegoating the NRA - by the media, Code Pink, Obama, Nadler, Bloomberg, Feinstein, and all the rest. It is amazing to behold. Or maybe it is a real live example of a Witch Hunt. They certainly put a lot of gusto into it. What Saul Alinsky advocates is out and out scapegoating.
Oh, but we don't even want to 'stigmatize' the mentally ill, never mind scapegoating them.
As the Beatles discovered, America is a strange place. Millions loved the Beatles until someone made a remark about being bigger than Jesus, and the love affair came to a screeching halt. But being avant garde artistes they probably figured it's just a bunch of gun toting troglodytes. It ain't so simple. Oh well, chalk it up to 'diversity'. Of course, Yugoslavia had 'diversity' and look at what happened to them.
The Globalist thugs ( One World Order) want us to be disarmed so that they can do things to us like the following:
Death-Spiral States Eye Exit Taxes
December 20, 2012
RUSH: It is a story from RealClearMarkets.com. It's not ABC, CBS, NBC. None of that. I don't know how widely disseminated this story is. But here's the headline: "When Will Death-Spiral States Impose Taxes on Citizens Who Leave?"
It is a story that asks the question and then makes the case for it. Let me give you a couple of pull quotes. "Like Glenn Close rising from the bathtub to take one more stab in Fatal Attraction, don't be surprised when death-spiral states resort to exit taxes as a last-ditch effort to forestall their impending bankruptcies. Exit taxes imposed on emigrants have a long history, including their use in both Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union," and naturally they would in places like that.
Every one of these liberal girly men (including the girl) would be the first SOBs to hide behind one of those carrying NRA people if a crazy bad guy with a gun started going off in that room. Stupid people...
does anyone have their names and networks? I'm almost certain some of those have applications in with Fox News. Their applications show themselves as conservatives. That is how Fox is getting neutralized and marginalized. Videos like this need to be categorized for future reference.
Yep! All in the name of emasculation, a common practice running rampant on our college and university campuses, including lisp and all. So pathetic, distorted, and removed from reality these folks are. Where will they be when the manure hits the fan and evil comes knocking at their door? My guess is that a phone call or two will be placed to a "goon" nearby to protect their sorry arses from harm's way. Evil acts have always occurred and will always continue to occur. GOT IT!!
You nail it msverde! I just saw a commercial on cable showing men shaving hair off their chests and arms to please their women. "You can take off a little hair or all of it, " the announcer proudly proclaims...
Apparently the long term effect of taking BC pills for women is that they are more inclined to couple with men who are more like them. Don't know if that's true, but more and more leading men on the screen look like "Just In Gerber" these days or that disgusting mama's boy, cougar hog--Ashton Crutcher.
My wife also watches a lot of the new house buyer programs and I now see these power mama's, real estate moguls and marketing executives, buying property in Puerto, etc., coupled with the sickest looking, namby pamby New wussies I'd eve imagined.
Color me predjudiced, I suppose.
Amen, Brother! Amen!! It is so obvious, isn't it? Pusillanimous to the nth degree, WordsFailMe! Aside from keeping abreast of news and events via video links on the web, I do not watch TV but have noticed through observation of and dialogue with women on the left, particularly here in my backyard of liberal NorCal USA, their subversive, surreptitiously nefarious drive to even exploit gay men as a tool and tactic of deception to use against MEN who they feel threaten by and too masculine for their own taste. They truly believe that the best response to defeating evil is instituting the "androgynous effect (see current trends such as names, clothing attires and colors, words and communication skills, etc.)" on manhood and man's natural disposition. Since facts and history contort their cognitive sensibilities, I am sure they failed to recognize the villainy and evilness of the notorious Brown Shirts of WWII, who fit their idea of the "perfect" man. Ares/Mars is the god of war, Venus...well, we know. This dichotomy is the basis of the fundamental debate between nature vs nurture, the latter for which is gaining traction in the modern era, yet moving in the wrong direction.
Touche on the plagiarism, sir!! Touche!! You are correct that there is no time to acquiesce and placate seeeeensibilities and political correctness. Thanks for the encouragement, WordFailMe. I am right there with you, brother. There comes a time in which puerility and fantasy has to take a back seat when more pressing, high-stake issues are at hand like, oh, I don't know, someone trying to take your inalienable rights away, or worse, eliminate you from the face of this planet because you refuse to believe in utopia and the common good when you know that equation does not stack up in the real world of natural law and duplicity, e.g., good vs evil, positive and negative, up and down, male and female, matter and antimatter, etc., etc. These among others are real, tangible components of the very essence of life. In other words, we LIVE in an unpredictable and very volatile and hostile world and keeping one's head on a swivel should be protocol of the first order to sniff out BS and danger when it surfaces. Again, I concur 100% with you that now is not a time for infantile behavior when 20 precious diamonds, one unfortunate mother in the wrong place (both psychologically and physically) at the wrong time, and 6 heroes who dared to stare evil straight in the eyes to protect the innocent are no longer walking among us. This is the very reason I got out of the music business and recently completed my MBA finance program on Dec. 10 of this month. It is not too late for us to right our ship and set course in a healthier and more prosperous path for all Americans. The more capital generated by businesses the better a society as a whole flourishes economically. You will earned more dollars to put in your own pockets to by your own damn condoms, if you so desire, or pay for the lifestyle you so choose without demanding that I should do so for YOU by transforming our federal government to force the issue. The framers of our Constitution and Our Founding Fathers knew that at any point small factions or minorities, who would not have the courage to toil the hardness of labor like every other red-blooded American, would try to exploit the frailty of others to supplant, by the sheer force in numbers (i.e., see this year's past election), our established system of a free republic, one that creates opportunities for everyone, if, and I say IF, one has the intestinal fortitude to work hard under the norms and civilized rules of law. So, what better way to gain enough power to transform our system of government than to become that system of governance. As Rome quickly discovered, the enemy within is clever and the demise of the republic will inevitably come to its full fruition if left unchecked and unchallenged. That is an undeniable fact of historical proportion.
"They truly believe that the best response to defeating evil is instituting the "androgynous effect ...on manhood and man's natural disposition."
I don't know if that's your original thought or not but you could not possibly nailed the issue more squarely (I fully intend to plagiarize you for the next 4 years! Maybe longer...) You MUST continue to write and post such material here and everywhere! The gentle, loving conservatives, whose hearts bleed for their traditions and beliefs need to understand how deeply into the psyche of the American mind the communist, statist and National socialist thought has penetrated. There is no time left to pull punches, cajole and plead one's case hoping to persuade. Thank you!
You sound like you may have been at sacstate in the early 70's, my friend. Gawd! I wake up gagging at the memories of the first nationally famous lesbians appearing like rock stars and the gays in parading mu-mu's and straw hats "on the quad..."
You can give the credit for this to our public education system and universities where they teach you what to think rather than how to think.
...and there is dirty air and water for those good Americans, and clean air and water for Republicans ONLY......
That's what MSM was "reporting".....MSM press-titutes, urinalists and regular red idiots dutifully kissing 50% white arshe
What else would you expect from the 5th Column Lame stream Media?
We'll get rid of them at the same time we take care of the Demunists.
We the People are coming, join us or get kicked to the curb.
Amazing how many people get into trouble by not assuming that every gun is loaded and every mic is hot.
NOBODY on the left ever answered this:
"What do you do when a madman with a gun is shooting now, right now?!?!?"
...They talk, and they say things, then talk more and say other things,
THEY NEVER ANSWER THE QUESTION...
they never answer this one either:
"Who can stop a madman with a gun if he/she is shooting now, right now?!?!?"
Yo, female (?) idiottess in a beige garb, here is an answer:
"only a good guy with a gun can do it".
Oh, Mr. La Pierre said that? So what, you mumble.
You, brainless ignorant commie, are K I L L I N G AMERICA without a gun.
Good morning RScoopers. If I had to guess the ages of these 4 individuals, I'm guessing they'd have been hatched in the early 1980's. Yeah-- the ripe old age of late twenty's or early thirties. Barely still green behind their ear's and yet these youngster's are the one's bringing America the new's of the day.
So much wisdom and maturity, just makes everyone all warm and fussy from the inside. Yep' they know and thing or two, to three about the real problems we are facing in the world. "Through rose colored classes"
Snickering and reading with more snickering.....? put's little to no doubt into how Obama was re-elected for me.
Mr. LaPierre's press conference was excellent, and factual. To bad it had to be interrupted with code pink's B.S. So' again, insert snicker here too......
What is pathetic is people don't realize, and obviously the reporters don't either, that their narrow minded proclamations made with prejudice is what is so ignorant.They aren't interested in reporting, listening, or anything else. Their bias is their stupidity and it's blatant.
This country is going to die from it's malignant narcissism.
I'm afraid America is well on her way...
What good is an education with-out common sense. That's exactly what is not being taught, "to not" think for ones-self. Note the behavior we are witnessing in this video. These young journalist's are only there to do what's required of them, to show-up. Obviously, this was pre-planned like all the many other required speeches these young spoon feed progressives attend. The Big cheeses do their work for them back at the office.
#Note: this is what we have out-lined for your attendance today for the NRA conference. Please stay with-in the talking point's instructed to you.
Why do we call these leftist fools reporters? They are paid propagandists and nothing more. They only push agendas, to their own detriment and the detriment of people, who are too ignorant to realize what they are.
You know what... The technology we have at our fingertips today... WE are the REAL Journalists! We ferret out the REAL story... We spread the truth, using social media, Facebook, Twitter! We are the ones that call our representatives! We are the ones that bombard the phone lines... Send the faxes, Tweet the truth!
We are the Vanguard now! We hold their feet to the fire! We expose falsehood and lies and force retractions! We bring people REAL news! We are the educators! The Rebels if you will! We are the ones that will SAVE this NATION!!!
So to hell with the old media... We embrace the NEW media and we shall set this Republic FREE!!
Oh, and... er... Happy Christmas to all! :-)
I just found out about this incredible site, it has a plethora of information that probably is rarely available in our country now. Things our government doesn’t want us to know…
The psychology section explains how they are manipulating us into Communism.
I love the NRA, and LaPierre, but was there any reason to set this up as a press conference where rabid Leftists will almost certainly attempt to wrest control? And if that's not bad enough, agreeing to go on Press the Meat with Chief White House propagandist/water carrier, David Gregory? Meanwhile, Obama introduces Jean Francois Kerry, takes no questions, and doesn't even let Kerry speak! Oyve, can't anybody here play this game?
There are very few journalist but a lot of Wanna be MSM Personalities.
Becoming the $tars of the broadcast, and they can opine instead of report and hobnob with the elite and be seen as part of the elite.
After reading the 55 or so posts so far there really isn't much to add.
The education angle has been discussed. Our Universities and public school system has been saturated by liberal thinking individuals. Money from the taxpayers go to finance the educational dreams of the people who turn around to teach in our public school systems only to bash the very goons that sacrificed their all, so these educated idiots can spew their self indulgent rhetoric because they have a right won with blood, not by word.
The hypocrisy angle has been pointed out all too many times. These so called elite citizens speak often of protection, yet live in gated communities complete with guards with guns and that's ok. If the average law abiding citizen wishes to protect themselves; according to these idiots, the law abiding ciitizens must wait for the police to show up. Unfortunately in most cases, the police show up just in time to identify the victim, complete with body bags. These then brain dead elite citizens spew more insane rhetoric about the need to do away with all guns unless of course you are speaking of their armed guards. These dumb a$$ individuals need to read their history and see how Hitler himself used this tatic to make victims of any person alive that he deemed worthless. The scary thing about the thinking of these liberal elites and Hitler is that it is very similar.
The rights angle. These elites are always talking about rights, rights of gay marriage, rights of bestiality, rights of mandatory government health care, rights of the U.N. to monitor our elections, the right to vote several times in several states so long as it is for their candidate, the right to destroy any fetus/child before birth so long as the person in questions feels good about it. The right to have their birth control paid for by everyone else so they can engage in as much extracurricular activities they want, not having to fear disease or pregnancy because the tax payers are on the hook for this cost as well. Then these lower located sphincters will immediately complain about the cost of health care. This subject could go on and on.
The civility angle. Well, if you watch this or any other attack by these so called elites, you can see they will never be civil to anyone that disagrees with them. According to these lower extremity orifices, they are the only ones that deserve kindness and civility.
Sorry, but these people effect me in such a way as to make me want to regurgitate.
Thanks AmericanborninCanada, I do have much to say, and truth be told, I like aiming my voice to liberals that will at least listen. Problem is that most liberals won't listen to anything that differs from belief structure. IMHO I believe that if they were to ever listen to opinions that differ from their own, and if this causes any doubt, it would cause them mental and physical pain. As I try and tell my daughter all the time, I am not right all the time, but one must at least present evidence of my incorrectness to sway me one way or the other. Take the gun control issue at hand, liberals refuse to accept that the more guns we take away, the more victims we create. Look at the areas that have the strictist gun laws on the books, in almost all of these areas gun violence is much higher than in the rest of the nation. The one simple fact that many liberals refuse to face is this; if you outlaw guns, only the outlaws will have guns. To further this tought one must add this to the equation; criminals will never give up their guns. May the blanket of peace keep you warm and safe.
Great point sis and a reminder that many read our posts that many never post a comment of their own. So efforts to respond to the individual on the Morgan thread educate many, many others who then share the truth within their network.
Thanks again, and may you have a blessed day as well. I tell all my students that if one tries with the full conviction of their heart and soul, there is no shame. We all will fail as well as all succeed. Let us not be judged for our failed attempt at success, but our refusal to give up without giving our best.
Learning the hard way is often the only way. That is not to say I feel no sympathy for those people hurt by their own...for the lack of a better word, stupidity. I have had plenty of my own experiences with uh...moments of stupidity. As for Political Correctness, or Poor Choice as I have come to look at the term, I agree with your judgment on the subject. I often tell my daughter and the kids I have in class, that PC has never changed any one’s mind, only their terminology. I explain it this way; you can call a turd a chocolate bar all you want, but it is still a turd. Unless a person has a change of heart, you can change their vocabulary all you want; the person you are trying to enlighten will remain with the same in their thoughts and deeds. Thanks again for the reply.
I've learned the hard way that trying to have an intelligent, rational conversation with someone whose thoughts and opinions are based solely on the emotions of the moment and lacking any consistency, is pointless.
Political Correctness is the idiot's tool. It prevents stupid people from being confronted by their own stupidity. Why do you think liberals protect PC thought and conversation as if it were their bible ?
Arguing with liberals is frustrating, because of these reasons. As the great philospher Ron White once said: "You can't fix stupid." Liberalism and stupidity are synonymous.
I hear you loud and clear. A few of us were having a "conversation" and providing evidence last night on the Pierce Morgan thread. The guy swore he is a conservative, but his argument was based on nothing, yet he refused to listen to those who did provide stats. Sigh. I still gotta try. We all still need to try- we never know when someone is willing to open their mind and consider things.
I'm like you, not only am I not right all the time, I'm far from knowing as much as some folks here- but I'm willing to read, read and investigate stuff. I just wish others would do the same.
Have a Blessed day armyvetfriend.
This is the by-product of what you get from the liberal "schools of journalism" these days. Most of these kids are probably MEMBERS of Code Pink, or at least organizations like them. I would like to also know how many of these morons are veterans? How many actually served in the armed forces in ANY capacity? I would bet you not a single one. And THESE are the people forming public opinion today. Marry that idea to the "low information voters" out there, and you can understand why the left-wing mainstream media is the way it is today.
Sure seems to me that there have been a lot of mass shooting in the last 4 years?
Have (so called) 'Assault Weapons' become that much more dangerous in just the last 4 years or might there be something to what the head of the NRA was saying about the increasingly (liberal) decay of the society in general.
So 10th grade. Seems the guy doing most of the talking is just hitting on the chick...
The real scary part is that anyone would even in jest label these idiots journalists.
They have not heard that old adage, I might not agree with you but I defend your right to the death. They have no idea they could be next but as non thinking parrots they would not know the difference.
This is the sausage that Leftist education (indoctrination) is producing these days, people like Bill Ayres are writing the textbooks. Think about that...
