Addressing Mr. Sutton's revealing statistics: Isn't it interesting that the least educated states (which usually makes them the poorer states too) have elected Republicans rather than Democrats to help turn them around? Could this possibly mean the Republicans are actually the party for the poor and uneducated? Thank you Mr. Sutton for pointing out the obvious.
In response to Mr. Kasl's astute observation above, I'd like to add here a Letter to the Editor that our editor has currently refused to publish:
Common Core is a Crock
Don’t listen to liberals cooing over the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) cooked up by the likes of Bill Gates and the UN.
The reform known as Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for grades K-12 is designed to produce a universal "work force ready" population prepared to identify themselves as "global citizens." CCSS demotes American values, undermines American constitutional principles and detaches students from their families and faith. The UN knows how difficult it is to convince free people to abandon their country, faith, and culture. They are relying on the indoctrination of coming generations to embrace the principles of globalism.
Critics of CCSS have reported disturbing texts containing crude, sexually explicit readings for teens. Multiple examples of anti-American sentiment abound. The Boston Tea Party is called "a terrorist act." Examples from a grammar lesson relate, "The commands of government officials must be obeyed by all," and "The wants of an individual are less important than the well-being of the nation.”
In grade school textbooks, concepts of justice and equality are given politically biased meanings. “Justice” means the redistribution of wealth and resources. “Equality” dismantles preference for one's own culture, religion, and customs. Data gathered on students is supposedly to improve performance but is in truth a measurement of a student's adjusted attitude and behavior---a Soviet style "managed outcome."
Thoroughly investigate this program and discover the real agenda of Common Core, where the student is a product, schools are processing plants, and teachers are informative delivery agents. The ultimate goal of CCSS is to train workers to serve a one-world government, not the education of children to freely pursue their own identity, ideals, faith, and careers.
Freedom Loving Americans, You Better Wake Up!
Common Core a Crock
Once again, do you notice that Mr. Chamberlain did not listen to a word I said? Do liberals read information differently than normal people? I said we conservatives compared both sides and named several of the ones we watch. Chamberlain apparently didn't get it and brought up only one news outlet, Fox News, as if by watching that particular bain of liberals, it disqualifies conservatives from being open-minded no matter how many other news sources they peruse. Read between the lines and you will see a frustrated, angry, and fearful man who believes anyone who thinks different than him is beneath him. Chamberlain is afraid to watch Fox News or any other conservative venue, because if he did he might be forced to change his tune and his heart. He would actually see things that are being kept from the public by the lame-stream media and would have reliable sources proving it. But that would be too much for any liberal to bear and life wouldn't be so funny anymore. As for which church I go to, I am very particular. I not only go to a church that "preaches compassion and help for the poor" but one that believes in the sanctity of human life from creation to natural death, something liberals like Chamberlain know nothing about because they don't check out "every side." My church preaches that freedom comes with responsibilities to uphold the good and the right. Obamanite churches like the one Chamberlain probably frequents, preach death for unwanted babies and sterile, life-less "marriages" between whomever and whatever anyone wants to marry. They don't preach responsible freedom, they preach license to do whatever you want, to whomever you want, whenever you want, as long as it makes you "happy." And if Chamberlain was to check out the other side he would see that these "happy" people are not happy at all, but are filled with frustration, pain, and fear because they are transgressing God's laws. They would see that the liberal depiction of utopia is the road to death and chaos. But like I said, that would be too much for them. Truth will eventually win out in the end. Too bad the poor Chamberlains of this world will never see it, and therefore never know true peace, joy, and happiness.
Some things are worth hearing twice.
Thank you Mr. Sims. You are clear, concise, logical, and fair. Liberalism cannot stand under the onslaught of truth. Too bad none of this is getting out to the national level. The main stream media has silenced it. That is also a sign that the country is taking the road you outlined. When socialist propaganda becomes the arbiter of truth in the media, the brain-washing commences for weaker minds and uninformed or indifferent human subjects. Notice I didn't say human individuals. Once the herd mentality takes over a country, individual freedom disappears. Unfortunately America (and the rest of the world) is showing signs of this progression, and with Obama, the speed has increased exponentially. Although it's rather interesting to watch this great experiment playing itself out once again, it sure ain't no fun because the innocent and the trusting are victimized along with the perpetrators. One good thing occurs, however. People begin to rely once more on a loving God then on themselves and the state. It may be a long way off, but there is hope.
I despise Clinton's ideology just as much as Obama's. But Clinton is white, old, and a man. How can this be?
Ever notice that the only ones who bring up the race card is the liberals. They do it in order to fan illogical negative emotions so they don't have to face reality or reason clearly. If you are white, a man, old, religious, carry a gun, and love traditional marriage you are automatically an ignorant, prejudiced, hate-monger. It doesn't matter what you say or do or who you really are. How sad that this is the case all over the country and beyond. Truly we are living in a Pro-death culture when we try to kill people even with words. When that begins to happen to a country, it rots, morally and economically. How far we have come and what a brave new world we live in. Sure hope you are satisfied, Mr. Paulk.
Yes, Mr. Paulk, ignorance is bliss. Too bad one never recognizes it in oneself.
If only you would stop writing and the other "progressives" as well. We might actually be able to save our country from the moral and economic rot you've helped usher in. I'll keep praying.
Nothing like changing the subject and focusing the issue back on me in order to avoid unpleasant realities, but you are right and I apologize. I thought I had added Mrs., but I didn't peruse my letter afterward like I normally do.
I sure wish you were as concerned about child killing (abortion) and the destruction of families (homosexual unions) as you are with manners.
After all the rhetoric and hyperbola, there is only one question to be asked. Is abortion the deliberate killing of a human being? If it is (and science proves it), then the law now says we can kill a whole segment of society without thought or compassion. If abortion is not the deliberate killing of a human being, then once again we have to ask, "What is it?" All other dialogue hinges on that one question because if people are not guaranteed the right to life then all other rights will become forfeit as well. And that is exactly what is happening.
