      My own wife has her 1st graders recite the Pledge … every single morning in her own classroom. Been doing it her entire career. I don’t believe ANY other classroom in her entire combat-zone, “urban” hell-hole, of an inner city School District recites the pledge … she’s the only one. And there are always MORE parents who beg to get their kids into her classroom than any other … because she GETS all but the worst basket cases up to and beyond grade level.

          Well deserved, thanks. I usually tell her when I’ve posted things about her, and will pass on your good wishes. I am actually shocked that nobody has complained, and nobody has attempted to stop her in the SD. It goes against every other single “policy” and “practice” of her School District which is leftist PC’ed out of their minds.

          Sheesh, and the amount of “special need” children “mainstreamed” into her classroom is astounding and near impossible to deal with. Every ‘allergy’ imaginable. The amount of foods BANNED from her classroom boggles the mind. How is it that 25% of her students have death-inducing food allergies. And then there’s the Jehovah’s Witnesses who can’t participate in birthday celebrations. And the Special Muslim holidays and dietary restrictions. And don’t get me started on the children’s … shall we say … imaginative … names (that upset parents if not pronounced correctly). And the 5-6 ESL kids she has to use “sign language” to communicate with. And that doesn’t count Spanish (which she speaks, adequately) … I’m talking Mongalese, Ghanan, etc. I couldn’t do what she does. Not for a single day.

    Posted this on the shooting thread but wanted to post it here just to know what others think: I know this is kind of out there and really may have nothing to do with this shooting. The early reports are that this guy did this because he lost in the tournament. So, he killed people because he lost (supposedly, may never know). What other group do we know that refuses to accept losing and responds with violence? The “Resistance,” the Dems/Left/Progressives. They are teaching people that it is okay to attack others if you lose. Again, may have nothing to do with this shooting but it is a thought.

  3. Just read some of the Headlines for McCain. Can’t relate to the guy. He is no better than my father or grandfather. I didn’t come from a line of nobility where my relatives handed me everything.

    Actually would have been an upset Obama beating McCain if the GOPe didn’t crash the economy. McCain, his daughter, or anyone directly related to him wouldn’t have adequate it to where I’m at if they were in my shoes.

    Today I filled one of the many survey I receive from the RNC. As a Trump supporter I have glowing reviews of his efforts to date and he greatly deserves praise and our continued support for all he has done in service to this great nation. I also always add a comment at the end saying that he needs to stop complaining about the deep state and start demonstrating through actions his solutions.

        Yes, because he looks weak when he complains without taking the concerted action his supporters expect. I know some people on this site consider it unseemly to criticize the President whatsoever. They also speak a lot and rightly so about our 1A rights and the general principle of having free and open discussion. Call it yanking his chain. He looks weak when he gets on Fox and Friends, etc. and complains as if he is not President of the United States and does not have all the power of that office. Otherwise, MAGA!

He says those things for effect, the effect on his enemies who may thereby underestimate him, the deep state to call them out and keep people talking and who knows what else, I don’t pretend to but weak, no way Jose. I also think you are not accurate about the power of the office. POTUS has defined powers and if he wants his legacy to endure, rather than to melt away like Obama’s illegal actions he needs to color within the lines. If his supporters expect him to order the wall to be built bypassing congress it’s best he ignores them. We have a lot to get through & we will need all 8 years.

          Never in my lifetime have I been so admiring and appreciative of the person in the WH as I am now for the one who currently resides there. I understand that the rhetoric is not what it appears to be and that traps have been set around DC. But it is approaching the 9th inning and I don’t even know what the score is. I gave him my vote and I will do it again and again. I live in SF where the population i s hook line and sinker in the tank. They get their news from the front pages directly into their veins. Someone asked me the other day down in North Beach what Hillary has done wrong. So, maybe it’s the case that the media is backfiring on the dems. I’m not fully convinced how it will wash out come November. I do know that the truth must be exposed before the elections. Too much is at stake, but you all know that!

          • Avi, I think you are trying to push your position by attacking. All you do is make people leave the site or shut up. You don’t change minds. I think that the situation is ambiguous so when an article comes up that addresses it with an interesting point of view I post it.

            That’s adding substance. Posting Sessions is a creep, people who aren’t on my bandwagon are trolls or posting Sessions is great, we must support him is just adding noise.

            I am sure you have your reasons for your beliefs. I don’t respond to Sessions attacks because until the cards are on the table you have as much chance of being right as I do.

            I think POTUS is an especially wily & shrewd commander in chief and views the rooting out of corrupt individuals and practices as one of his primary goals. I trust him to be sure he has the right people on his team and that they are closing in on their targets. You appear to think he is stymied and if he fired Sessions & Rosenstein he could get someone else in who could wrap things up tout suite. I think the situation is more complex.

        Both Cates and Wictor are helplessly invested in the “super secret sting operation” fantasy – it’s the basis of their Twitter followings, which would evaporate if they started to say they no longer believe that Sessions and Rosenstein (and everybody else Trump has ever waved hello to) are part of a secret operation to arrest every bad person who ever lived.

        Larry Schweikart also bought into this theory for a long time, but is now saying there’s clearly no secret plan and that Sessions is a scared rabbit who’ll never do anything. But Schweikart’s Twitter following is based mainly on his expertise in analyzing voter statistics, so he little nothing to lose by changing his mind about Sessions.

        I feel like Cates and Wictor will still be insisting that Session’s firing is “part of the plan” in 2019, that Hillary not being indicted by 2020 is “part of the plan” and so on.

    Sometimes the ACLU can surprise us

    The official view of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) remains that the Second Amendment protects a “collective right rather than an individual right.” But the organization nevertheless is helping the National Rifle Association (NRA) fend off extralegal attempts by New York state officials to put it out of business.

    In a brief filed in federal court today, the ACLU argues that New York’s strong-arm efforts to compel banks and insurance companies to ditch the NRA as a customer represent a glaring violation of the First Amendment.

    “Although public officials are free to express their opinions and may condemn viewpoints or groups they view as inimical to public welfare, they cannot abuse their regulatory authority to retaliate against disfavored advocacy organizations and to impose burdens on those organizations’ ability to conduct lawful business,” the ACLU says.

    John Stossel interviews David Mamet, with clips of Mamet speeches interspersed.
    Includes Mamet’s thoughts on Obama, Saul Alinsky, and so much more.

    Boy is this guy ever brave. Mamet was reared in a “brain-dead liberal” Alinskyite household, and walked away in 2008. Sundance has referred to this guy several times.

    “In 2008 Hollywood Liberal of over 40 years, broke his silence with an article in the Village Voice entitled “Why I Am No Longer a Brain-Dead Liberal” that must rank as the most provocative essay of that year. It caused consternation among the left-wing commentariat on both sides of the Atlantic who, until now, have regarded the author of American Buffalo and Glengarry Glen Ross as one of their own.” 8:12

      Is Mamet ever right in his observations! We’ve been subject to this ideology and it’s left most everyone confused. Not for nothing that the seemingly dyed-in-the-wool “liberals” I know—and that’s a lot of them—complain about the leftist-originated “protests”, the poor state of education, the homeless spread all around, high taxes, and so on endlessly. IOW these people profess to despise PT and support “liberal” candidates while at the same time being disgusted by the very things the leftists have brought about.

      If these folks ever catch on to the con job they’ve been subject to and gone along with, they’re going to be mighty angry voters. And the Democrats will suffer losses like never seen before. Question is how to get them over the hump, we just need the right magic that wakes ’em up and lets them see the light.

    Warning–this little exercise is a complete waste of your time…but…
    Lately I’ve been feeling some trepidation at what the outcome of the November count will be.
    Since if the Democrats win the House I expect little good to come for the next two years I wonder what sober observers here are predicting for the results. Will the GOP gain seats? Will they lose seats but retain control? Will they be forced to hand the gavel over to Pelosi?
    I realize that much time remains before ballots are cast but I’ve been thinking about “cleaning my pistol” on the night of November 08 and wouldn’t want to have any accidents–so I must prepare myself for all contingencies. If you know what I mean. Thanks for your well thought replies. If any.

      We will gain seats – several in the Senate (which in the Senate is a lot), a handful in the House (which in the House doesn’t mean much).

      The DNC will immediately claim Russian interference, fraud, etc. and unleash as much protesting, lies and lunacy as they can for the remaining two months of spineless RINO-controlled govt, until we get our new people installed in January (maybe a supermajority if everything breaks just right for us) with a few more pro-MAGA people to help protect Trump and push through his agenda.

      That’s my expectation. We’ll win, but it will be uglier than anything we’ve seen so far, and we’ve seen the worst insanity of our lives from the left so far. We “ain’t seen nothing yet.”
