Ridiculous

NBC Asks: 'If I Answer the Wrong Question, Is My Teacher Going to Shoot Me?'

The abject stupidity of this statement is stunning.  First, why would a student know if a teacher was carrying?  Concealed means CONCEALED.  Second, a child would have to believe that the teacher is irresponsible, reckless, or evil enough that shooting them is even an option.  Third, what's stopping a teacher from using extreme form of discipline now with knives, bats, or rulers?  To assume that a person would by default become more likely to cause harm because they have come in contact with a firearm is lame.  Seen at newsbusters.org:

All 50 State Constitutions Explicitly Thank God for His Benevolence

Did you know every state constitution explicitly thanks God and acknowledges that our nation is dependent upon Him?  I didn't.  It doesn't surprise me that it was written in, but it does surprise me that none have been forced to remove it.  Seen at cnsnews.com:

To know the hearts, minds and collective will of our Founding Fathers and American pioneers, one need only look to what they wrote in their respective state constitutions. Most will be amazed to learn that all 50 state constitutions explicitly and unequivocally thank God for his benevolence and acknowledge that we as a nation are dependent upon Him - that He is the sole source of our freedoms. This is true, not just for the "red states," but for the bluest of the blue. (See what your state constitution says about God).

Let's start with the most liberal state in the Union: Massachusetts.

We, therefore, the people of Massachusetts, acknowledging, with grateful hearts, the goodness of the great Legislator of the universe, in affording us, in the course of His providence ... and devoutly imploring His direction in so interesting a design, do agree upon, ordain and establish the following ... Constitution of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Mississippi Leads the Way Restoring Prayer in Schools as DOJ Seeks Infringement

Seen at misguidedchildren.com:

Governor Phil Bryant of Mississippi has signed a new law, effective Monday, which requires school districts to allow a “limited public forum” at school events such as intercom announcements, assemblies or football games, to enable students to express religious beliefs. Mississippi Senate Bill 2633 states:

…public schools to develop policies that will allow students to pray over school intercoms, at assemblies and at sporting events.  While not allowing school-sanctioned prayer, the law permits students to offer public prayers with a disclaimer by the school administration.

The disclaimer is that such student speech “does not reflect the endorsement, sponsorship, position or expression of the district.”

According to Senator Chris McDaniel (R-Ellisville), the bill “Provides a limited public forum — making it clear the state is not endorsing the speech.” McDaniel added, “What we don’t want to do is make it where prayer is discriminated against.”

DOJ Defunds Youth Programs that Reference God

Wow.

Obama’s Department of Justice has summarily removed federal funding from two Louisiana youth programs, one a Young Marines program, because a local official refused to sign a pledge stating he would require the programs to ban mentions of God.

Julian Whittington, the sheriff of Bossier Parish, La., told Fox News that Obama’s Justice Office of Civil Rights defunded the Young Marines chapter and another youth program over mentions of religion. In the case of the Young Marine program, chartered in 1965, the funding was cut off because the group features an oath that mentions “God.” In the other case it was because a program for at risk youth featured a voluntary, student-led prayer session as one of its activities.

Sheriff Whittington says that the DOJ withdrew a combined $30,000 from the programs because the groups refused to remove God from their activities. The sheriff said this was evidence of the government’s “aggression and infringement of our religious freedoms.”

The State V. God

Ben Shapiro on the ramifications of the SCOTUS ruling last week.

The ramifications of that move are stunningly far-reaching. The argument that gay marriage doesn’t affect straight marriages is a ridiculous red herring: Gay marriage affects society and law in dramatic ways. Religious groups will come under direct assault as federal and state governments move to strip them of their non-profit statuses if they refuse to perform gay marriages. Public schools across the country will be forced to teach homosexual marriage alongside traditional marriage. Religious business owners will be leveraged to pay for benefits for same-sex spouses.

In the left’s view, all of this is to the greater glory of humanity. In the leftist view, there is no freedom to associate or freedom of religion if those rights come into conflict with the left’s view of morality. Religious florists must provide flowers for gay weddings; religious organizations must pay for abortion and contraception. What you do in your church makes you immoral, says the left — so immoral that your church must be removed from the public square or forced to bow to the power of the state.

Charged with DUI despite blood alcohol content of 0.000

Not entirely sure how you can blow a zero on the breathalizer, pass the drug and alcohol exam, and still get pinched for DUI.  Something fishy here.  Read at newsnet5.com:

Jessie Thornton sleeps during the day and runs errands and works out during the night.

...

Around 11 p.m. Thornton, according to Surprise Police Department paperwork, was pulled over for crossing the white line in his lane.

"He (the officer) walked up and he said 'I can tell you're driving DUI by looking in your eyes,'" said Thornton.

The 64-year-old says his eyes could have been red because he had just left LA Fitness where he was in the pool swimming.

"I take my glasses off and he says, 'You've got bloodshot eyes.' I said, 'I've been swimming at LA Fitness,' and he says, 'I think you're DUI,'" said Thornton. "He (the officer) goes, 'Well we're going to do a sobriety test.' I said, 'OK, but I got bad knees and a bad hip with surgery in two days.'"

Medical documents show Thornton was scheduled to have hip replacement surgery two days after the incident.

According to the police report, the officer notes that Thornton does have a hip and knee problem.

Thornton said two other officers arrived and he conducted the sobriety test.
