A Speech Every American Educator Should Give.

Contributer: Gina

This piece was written by California talk show host Dennis Prager as a commencement speech he would give-if asked.  Perhaps this is a speech that should be given at all levels of our pitifull, inadequate, socialistic, brain-washed, coddled, anti-American and anti-Constitution school systems across the country.

 

A Speech Every American Educator Should Give…….By DennisPrager.

To the students and faculty of our school:I am your new principal, and honored to be so. There is no greater calling than to teach young people.

I would like to apprise you of some important changes coming to our school.  I am making these changes because I am convinced that most of the ideas that have dominated public education in America have worked against you, against your teachers and against our country. Continue reading

Congressional Reform Act of 2011

Contributed by: Gina


The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971…before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.

Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land…all because of public pressure.

I’m asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.

In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.

Congressional Reform Act of 2011
1. Term Limits.   12 years only, one of the possible options below..
A. Two Six-year Senate terms
B. Six Two-year House terms
C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms Continue reading

He is retiring and this is HIS LAST COLUMN. Be sure to read the Tax List at the end.
      545 vs. 300,000,000 People
        -By Charlie Reese
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then
campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against
deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high
taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes? Continue reading
