7th grader suspended for wearing rosary beads

I am in awe of the magnanimous stupidity of the Schenectady school district. To tell a 7th grader, who is wearing his rosary beads in honor of the death of his brother and uncle that he can not wear his beads because they might be considered 'gang' related is just about the most asinine thing I have ever heard. What if gang members started wearing traditional Muslim symbols to 'identify' themselves? Who would the one to ban those symbols? I don't think anyone would have the guts.

Regardless of what these school officials have written in their 'code of conduct' book, it is an affront to all Christians, and to all thinking Americans when a school attempts to ban the most recognizable religious symbol in the world, the crucifix as a possible 'gang' symbol. I'm sure there are plenty of Christian gang members, but I have never heard of any gangs who specifically use that symbol as their one and only identifier.

There has always been a fine line between dress codes and free speech, but there is a world of difference between wearing a t-shirt that says "Kill all the (Insert race or religion here)" and a boy who is wearing a rosary. The ACLJ(Not the ACLU, they suck) are taking this school to court over this issue. Now for the part that makes this a super FAIL! This same school has been sued and had to pay monetary restitution over this same kind of thing once already.

Everyday I get more and more disturbed at the things I see in this country. The degradation of our heritage, our history, our freedoms, our liberties is becoming an all to common practice. Some people seem to be ignoring it, others are embracing it, and than there are real Americans who are mad as hell and are fighting this destruction tooth and nail. They are Conservatives, Libertarians, Tea Party protesters, and others of the mind set that America is great because of where it came from, as well as where it is going. The other side of the aisle believe America is a cesspool of wrong ideas because of it's past, and they want to change our future to suit their socialist Utopian ideals.

If this makes you as angry as it made me, please repost this on your Facebook, Myspace, or Twitter accounts. I would really love for this story to be widely available so we can inform as many people as possible about how bad it really is in this country.

Elena Kagan
Holy mother of God! This radical monstrosity looks far too much like the guy from "The Princess Bride". Somebody get me a fork. I'm going to tear out my own eyes now.

Around the Obamashpere | 5-20-2010


Tea Party Favorite Rand Paul Under Fire for Criticizing Civil Rights Act
Republican Senate nominee Rand Paul scrambled to explain his criticism of the landmark U.S. Civil Rights Act, which outlawed racial discrimination, saying he agrees with its goals but questions the federal government imposing its will on businesses.
The political novice and Kentucky candidate issued a statement Thursday amid the fallout from a series of interviews in which Paul said he would have opposed forcing businesses to integrate under the law.
Democrats seized on the comments to argue that Paul holds extremist views and shouldn't be the choice of voters for the U.S. Senate.

This is slightly off-topic, but it's too cool to ignore.
Scientists have created artificial life in a laboratory, leading to accusations they are 'playing God' and tampering 'with the essence of life'.
In a world first, Craig Venter, a maverick biologist and billionaire entrepreneur, has made a synthetic cell from scratch.

National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair Resigns
National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair has resigned, Fox News has confirmed through senior congressional sources.
President Obama is interviewing candidates to replace Blair, according to ABC News, which first reported the story.
Blair's resignation comes after a series of intelligence failures in the Fort Hood shooting, the failed Christmas Day bombing plot and the attempted Times Square bombing.
A retired Navy admiral, Blair is the third director of national intelligence, a position created in response to the 9/11 attacks.
Blair's tenure as the overseer of the nation's intelligence agencies was marked by turf battles with CIA Director Leon Panetta and controversial public comments in the wake of the Christmas Day airliner bombing attempt.
  
Views are mixed on the job President Obama is doing, and for the first time his approval rating has dipped below 80 percent among Democrats, a Fox News poll finds.
In all, 45 percent of voters approve and 46 percent disapprove of the president's job performance. Earlier this month 48 percent approved and 43 percent disapproved. A year ago, 60 percent approved and 30 percent disapproved (12-13 May 2009).
Seventy-nine percent of Democrats approve and 12 percent disapprove. That's a record low approval for Obama among his party faithful.
Republicans remain solidly in the disapprove column, as 84 percent give the president a negative rating and 12 percent approve. More independents disapprove (48 percent) than approve (39 percent) -- and that's been true for about two months.
The poll followed up the presidential job rating question with an open-ended question that allowed voters to say in their own words why they approve or disapprove.

 Mexican President Felipe Calderon has been ripping into Arizona's immigration law as he tours Washington -- while appearing to disregard the way his own country cracks down on immigrants along Mexico's southern border. 
Mexico repeatedly has been cited by human rights groups for abusing or turning a blind eye to the abuse of migrants from Central America. Until recently, Mexican law made illegal immigration a criminal offense -- anyone arrested for the violation could be fined, imprisoned for up to two years and deported. Mexican lawmakers changed that in 2008 to make illegal immigration a civil violation like it is in the United States, but their law still reads an awful lot like Arizona's.

Around the Obamashpere | 5-19-2010

I've decided, in the interest of time, to only write full articles on particularly interesting topics, general political issue, and major historical events. I've decided to switch to a more news aggregation style format where I link to relevant news around the world and comment only briefly on the topic. This will allow me to concentrate more on writing engaging articles about politics, life, and the things that make America great. I hope you enjoy our new direction. Now here is the first installment of "Around the Obamasphere".
Barack Obama Socialist



Obama asks for citizenship status at high school commencement.
The White House appears to be laying the groundwork for President Barack Obama to shake the hand of each senior at Kalamazoo Central High School’s commencement ceremony next month.

Seniors are being asked to provide their birthdates, Social Security numbers and citizen status to the Secret Service so background checks could be performed. Such a check is required for anyone who gets within an arm’s length of the president, students were told at their senior breakfast Friday.

Democratic candidate for US Senate lied about serving in Vietnam.
At a ceremony honoring veterans and senior citizens who sent presents to soldiers overseas, Attorney General Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut rose and spoke of an earlier time in his life.
“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Mr. Blumenthal said to the group gathered in Norwalk in March 2008. “And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.”
There was one problem: Mr. Blumenthal, a Democrat now running for the United States Senate, never served in Vietnam. He obtained at least five military deferments from 1965 to 1970 and took repeated steps that enabled him to avoid going to war, according to records.

New details in fatal Detroit shooting of seven year old girl.
Police who carried out a raid on a family home that left a 7-year-old girl dead over the weekend were accompanied by a camera crew for a reality television show, and an attorney says video of the siege contradicts the police account of what happened.

Rand Paul Wins Senate GOP Primary in Kentucky.
Tea Party favorite Rand Paul, who defeated Republican establishment candidate Trey Grayson in Tuesday's GOP Senate primary in Kentucky, warned Washington to "watch out, here we come." 
After giving the anti-big government movement its most significant political victory yet, Paul said the Tea Party movement has a message, loud and clear.
"We have come to take our government back," he said in his victory speech, drawing thunderous applause from his supporters.

President Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderon joined hands Wednesday in blasting Arizona's controversial immigration law, with Obama calling the legislation a "misdirected effort" after Calderon slammed it as discriminatory. 
Obama, speaking next to Calderon during Wednesday's state visit, called the the tough immigration law a "misdirected expression of frustration over our broken immigration system."
"We're examining any implications especially for civil rights because in the United States of America, no law abiding person -- be they an American citizen, illegal immigrant, or a visitor or tourist from Mexico -- should ever be subject to suspicion simply because of what they look like."
Comment from Republikid: This law in Arizona is not misdirected frustration Mr. President, it is simply reiterating and enforcing the laws we already have in place. Something we have been failing to do properly for years. President Calderon. You, like your predecessor have turned the country of Mexico in to a festering shit-hole. The economy has tanked, it's people are destitute, it's government and it's law enforcement are corrupt. Scores of drug lords and drug-running murderous street gangs spread death and pestilence wherever they go. 

The violence and the drugs are now spilling uncontrollably unto the streets of America. Your inaction or inability to manage your own country are the reason people are desperately crossing the border to enter in to the United States. Do not think you can tell us how to manage our borders or pass laws to protect our citizens. Your failure is costing the United States dearly and it is time that it stopped.

Middle-Class America:The New Black(Racism and Tea Party Politics)

Blackface


I received a comment about my earlier posting regarding Dale Robertson and his infamous "niggar"sign, and I just wanted to respond to this person. I realized as soon as I began to type that a reply to a comment would not be enough, so I decided to address his comment in a separate post.
The guy holding the sign is on record, acknowledging the sign and the wording on it. http://videocafe.crooksandliars.com/heather/alan-colmes-tea-partier-tells-mediaite-rac I found this in about 8 seconds on Google. You could have also. Are you that lazy? Or are you intentionally trying to deceive, obfuscate, and mislead?
I actually find the whole affair to be laughable. To answer your question, no I am not trying to deceive, obfuscate, or mislead anyone. I just thought the sign looked a bit odd is all. Frankly, I could care less if he used that word. If he really feels that congress is treating the American people like Ni**er slaves than that's his opinion. It makes perfect sense considering the roots of slavery rest solely with the Democrat party.

The states that seceded from the Union..Democrat controlled. After the war, all the laws passed by Republicans to protect black people..repealed by Democrats when they regained control of the house. The Jim Crow laws...enacted by Democrats, repealed by a majority Republican vote..almost no Democrats showed up at all. The rich history of the Democratic party of the United States was built on the backs of black slaves.

Now, as we watch our system of government(a Constitutional Republic for those of you who still think we live in a Democracy)is being systematically dismantled by the Obama administration, Capitalism undermined by this Administrations takeover of Banks, Auto, Wall Street, slowly regulating the life out of the economy at the expense of the lower and middle class. Jobs continue to be lost at a staggering rate in my county, yet they talk about less unemployment claims, and a recovering economy.

Food, clothing, gas prices are all slowly increasing, employment is abysmal at best, and on a regular basis the Democrats push through more laws that strangle the life from our nation. The most ironic thing of all, poor blacks continue to remain poor, all at the hands of another black man. One with almost no political experience, surrounded by lifelong Democrats just waiting for a puppet to mold.

So yes, we are all ni**ers in the eyes of this government. We are all subject to their will as the very people we elect to represent us betray us to serve their own interests. John Lennon was wrong, Woman is not the ni**er of the world, it is lower and middle class America, all of us, every one.

I am sure that some of my readers might take offense at this post, for that I am sorry. For the record I will state my opinion on this whole affair of race that has been plaguing this country lately.

There will always be some who will be upset that a black man is president, but this last election was not about race to most of America. It was about race to Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the main stream media. To the record number of black voters who turned out to vote for the first time...it was about race. For myself and my family, we vote for the candidate we think best represents our interests, regardless of the color of his skin.

The Republicans criticisms about Barack Obama are not about race, they are about leadership, of which our President has little. The Tea Party and their objections to the Democrats health care reform bill, and the castrating of the free markets is not about race. The Democrats and the media virulently disagree, instead citing unfounded claims of hatred, racism, bigotry, and homophobia as a defense for their criticisms of the movement and the good and decent people who are a part of it.
