tomb of the unknown - memorial dayOur 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 †

          What they refuse to mention –
          1) Interrupted her class with a cell phone call.
          2) Refused to hand over her phone to the teacher.
          3) School administrator called to the room and told the student to leave, she refused.
          4) Security officer called, he asked her 5 or six times to get up, she refused.
          5) Several students have stated that she struck the officer when he tried to pull her out of the desk.
          Conclusion – The little princess broke a rule, the student that recorded the event also broke the rules. I can only conclude they planned it.

            It doesn’t pass the smell test. Looks too much like a setup to ensnare the officer. By being totally uncooperative the girl gets dumped on the floor, dragged on the floor, and roughed up. Fellow students look on unmoved like so many zombies. One or two students make sure they capture the scene on cameras. It makes the sheriff’s department look bad, so sheriff fires officer. All costs will be borne by taxpayers.

    SURPRISE!!!! The Fed not raising interest rates! Cites weak economy/jobs market.
    They have an uncanny ability to state the obvious!

    “”””Still, the Fed indicated that the economy is expanding only modestly. And in a nod to recent weaker data, policymakers said in their statement that the pace of job gains had slowed – an indication that they may be concerned about the pace of hiring.

    Some Fed officials have signaled a desire to raise rates before year’s end. But tepid economic reports have led many analysts to predict no hike until 2016.””””””

      Note that there is no COLA increase for Social Security recipients because the cost of gas has tanked. Explain that to the millions of older folk who don’t drive but do need healthcare, food and housing, which all have increased in price.

      They also are getting no benefit from having a savings account to shelter them after retirement. Thanks to those running our Treasury and Federal Reserve, savings accounts are probably the highest-risk method of putting money aside for emergencies.

      Rock bottom interest rates only serve to skew the economy as corporations (and our governments at multiple levels) take on dangerous amounts of “cheap” debt and indulge in other misbehaviors that will, someday and someway, have to be paid back and accounted for. Look at the budget projection to 2025 — as if the GOPe/Democrats won’t screw around with the details over the next ten years.

    • Obama administration: Letting Congress control tribal recognition would worsen broken system

      A Republican proposal to let only Congress decide whether American Indian tribes deserve federal recognition threatens the legitimacy of hundreds of tribes and would add delay to what was long a broken system, an Obama administration official said Wednesday.

      The comments came as a House committee considered legislation to block the administration’s recent overhaul of the tribal recognition process. Republicans contend that the changes finalized by the Interior Department over the summer lowered the standards for recognizing tribes and diminished the role of lawmakers.

      OF COURSE the Obama administration wants to keep the recognition process solely in the domain of non-elected bureaucrats… because that system works so well…:

      Yet the Interior process also has been tainted by politics, according to past investigations by the agency’s Office of Inspector General. That includes a 2002 investigation that found a senior Interior official issued recognition decisions contrary to staff recommendations.

      http://www.usnews.com/news/politics/articles/2015/10/28/us-official-congress-shouldnt-control-tribal-recognition

      Oh, and before I forget to ask… if this is true…:

      Federal acknowledgement allows tribes to be treated largely as their own nations within U.S. borders, with independent governments and legal systems.

      …then WHY do the various tribes have any “Say So” in the way WE run America?

    Oh Well Only in California.
    California Signs Law Allowing Illegals To Vote 😮 ;o
    A California state bill was just signed in to law by Gov. Jerry Brown, that will register and allow illegal aliens to vote in US Elections. The New Motor Voter Act (A.B.1461) that is now law in California, automatically registers residents of California to vote at the DMV. According to the law and a report by the Washington Times, “The New Motor Voter Act automatically registers to vote all eligible voters when they obtain or renew their drivers licenses at the Department of Motor Vehicles instead of requiring them to fill out a form.”
    “The goal is to ease barriers to voting, but election-integrity advocates warn that the measure could inadvertently add millions of illegal voters to the rolls given that California allows undocumented aliens to obtain drivers licenses.” California state officials are praising the law and Alex Padilla, California’s Secretary of State says, “Citizens should not be required to opt in to their fundamental right to vote. We do not have to opt in to other rights, such as free speech or due process. The right to vote should be no different.” State Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez from San Diego said, “This bill will lead to millions more registered California voters, which means more people we can talk to.”
    http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/frequently-asked-questions/

    This is ILLEGAL!
    Who can register to vote?
    To register to vote in California, you must be:
    A United States citizen,
    A resident of California,
    18 years of age or older on Election Day,
    Not found mentally incompetent by a court of law, and
    Not currently imprisoned or on parole for the conviction of a felony (for more information on the rights of people who have been incarcerated, please see the Secretary of State’s Voting Rights for Californians with Criminal Convictions or Detained in Jail or Prison).

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your love and salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil. Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump as he seeks to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.

    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
