Wednesday Open Thread – November 28th

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

      America’s and Israel’s Classrooms: Truth at Risk

      http://cjui.org/Americas_Classrooms_Truth_At_Risk.html

      PENS – Parents for Excellence in Newton Schools
      excerpt
      According to the article’s author, School Committee member Matt Hills, the fact that student reading includes false and libelous accusations against Israel is not, in fact, anti-Israel.

      Also unimportant, in Mr. Hills’ view, is the fact that students are told that the Catholic church is “reconsidering polygamy as a Christian option” and that rabbis and priests diminish believers’ relationships with God.

      Jewish students, in turn, should just accept the fact that their religion causes them to steal land and unreasonably deter people who are trying to kill them. Apparently we should accept these statements because Hills, whose self-described religious credentials are unimpeachable, assures us that there is not and has never been any religiously objectionable material in our ‘excellent’ Newton schools.

      Of course, there are no actual facts to back up Hills’ allegations, but who needs facts when you can say whatever you want, no matter how false or objectionable, secure in the knowledge that no one will challenge your politically-connected, million dollar persona?

      That’s hilarious. Remember what Rush did with the letter that Pelousy or Reid generated, signed by a bunch of whimps, demanding that he be taken off armed forces radio?….he ended up auctioning off the original for a couple million dollars and gave it to the Marine Corps scholarship fund (I think…shoot—I should check on details…sorry)

      Anyway….it would be hilarious if Rush would help auction this off….some Christian conservative who’s filthy wealthy could enrich Glen Beck’s pockets, who would use it for conservative causes, and it could be displayed somewhere, with New Testament scriptures engraved all around it, identifying Jesus Christ as the Messiah and OT verses warning against idolatry–or somethin’.

    Here is a press release issued by the group referenced the other day regarding teaching about the Boston Tea Party being a “terrorist attack”. This was prefaced by an email penned to me by my regional contact at TESCCC. I was pleasantly surprised by the prompt response.

    Here is a quote from her –
    “As such, I would encourage you to look at the lesson in its entirety to find that the passage in the article was used as an opportunity to draw forth critical thinking skills based upon the facts surrounding the Boston Tea Party and asks the students to compare the event to the criteria outlined in the definition of terrorism. The goal is to draw the students into an analysis which would determine the event in fact cannot be classified as a terrorist event given the definition and criteria associated with terrorism.”

    TESCCC: FACTS ABOUT CSCOPE LESSON ON BOSTON TEA PARTY
    Over the last several months, certain groups and individuals have engaged in an attack on CSCOPE, a curriculum management system that is being utilized by 875 school districts in Texas. Implemented with the guidance and support of member-ESCs, CSCOPE helps school districts in Texas meet the expectations of ever-changing SBOE-approved standards and a more rigorous state testing system (STAAR/EOC).
    One fallacious claim circulated by these groups and individuals is that CSCOPE teaches that the Boston Tea Party “was an act of terrorism.” This claim is false and the portion of content in question has been grossly misinterpreted.
    Here are the facts about this lesson and its content, labeled as World History Unit 12 Lesson 07 (with a footnote dated 08/01/10):
    1. In no way does the content of the activity in question mean that the TESCCC believes the Boston Tea Party to be an act of terrorism. CSCOPE lessons do involve critical thinking and an understanding of perspective, but they do not promote any special interest or “agenda.”
    2. The lesson was originally written during the 2007-08 school year and is associated with the previous (and now outdated) Social Studies TEKS. This particular lesson- associated with the old World History Unit 12- was posted as an OPTIONAL lesson with the last unit of the school year.
    3. Upon district request, old Social Studies content remained archived on the CSCOPE site throughout the 2011-12 school year to be available as a resource until new lessons were provided. CSCOPE received no feedback on this optional lesson from users, so it remained archived in the previous CSCOPE site until the new website was launched in July, 2012.
    4. This lesson does not exist in the new CSCOPE site and has not been supported by CSCOPE for some time. CSCOPE provided new Social Studies curriculum components for districts for the 2011-12 school year, and is providing new lessons for the current school year (2012-13).
    The TESCCC acknowledges and respects all feedback. We also believe in the importance of meaningful dialogue when any questions or concerns may arise regarding the CSCOPE system or its content. For additional information on CSCOPE, visit http://www.cscope.us.

    Every politician, whether it’s a congressman senator, diplomat, or their spokespeople and the media are lying to the American public every time they call the location of the attack a consulate. It was not. There was absolutely no diplomatic consulate in Benghazi. None. Words are important here. They can create a wrong image, an incorrect picture of what was really going on.

    There’s a universal ache in the human heart, it seems. Never assume that those who are trusting God for daily and eternal needs do not also walk their own tears, live with their own longings and know their own limits. I’m not a fan of songs that deliberately “leave God out” as this song does, but this performance and this performer touches me deeply because of the authenticity of the portrayal of the John Lennon song, “Imagine.”

          I remember reading a newspaper article a few years ago about a baby born with no hands. They discovered early on during an ultrasound that the baby wasn’t going to be normal and the parents were encouraged to abort the baby. The parents refused, the little girl was 4 and saved the life of her father by calling 911 when he had a massive heart attack. They had a picture of the girl in the paper, beautiful child even in the grainy newspaper picture. I cried thinking how some parents would have chosen to kill the baby and would have missed out on God’s plan for the child.

    Charles Krauthammer tonight basically said if Obama won’t address entitlements and spending cuts in good faith regarding fiscal cliff situation the republicans shouldn’t cave on taxes…go over cliff and screw up his 2nd term. Don’t forget what happened to Bush Sr (read my lips no new taxes…than lost reelection coz Dems loaded taxes onto a bill that he passed and never lived it down). Same scenario 20 yrs later, if republicans give in can forget about gaining ground in 2014 elections and could quite possible lose house majority.
