GOP candidate Dede Scozzafava quits!! Polls showed Hoffman Beating Her

DeDe quits!

Water Town Daily Times - statement from Scozzafava as polls show her behind:

"Today, I again seek to act for the good of our community," Ms. Scozzafava wrote in a letter to friends and supporters. "It is increasingly clear that pressure is mounting on many of my supporters to shift their support. Consequently, I hereby release those individuals who have endorsed and supported my campaign to transfer their support as they see fit to do so. I am and have always been a proud Republican. It is my hope that with my actions today, my party will emerge stronger and our district and our nation can take an important step towards restoring the enduring strength and economic prosperity that has defined us for generations."

Owens (D) has support from 36 percent of likely voters in the poll, with Mr. Hoffman (C) garnering 35 percent support. Ms. Scozzafava (r) has support from 20 percent of those polled.

It ain't over til it's over though.
DeDe has some lefty views and a 20% following.
Some may have just been covering her as an (R) and some percentage to her social issues.

Even a split puts it too close to call...and you can imagine(pun)Valerie Jarret is on the phone too ACORN ordering buses.

update: it appears too have taken Dede, a proud self-sacraficing Republican, less than 24 hours to define her self. Or re-define her unmasked self. Having stated she wanted her (R) party to emerge stronger she now says today that she has decided to support the Democrat Owens.

As if we didn't know where her loyalties were anchored...Wake Up Michael Steele.

The G.O.P. : The Party of NO

The GOP is being labeled the Party of NO... meaning that many feel the party no longer stands for anything.

Eric Cantor, the No. 2 House Republican, hopes to change all that.

Cantor is convinced that taking the long view is the path to success: health care and global warming may be the topics du jour, but "the narrative next year leading into the election, will be all about the economy. It'll be about jobs, it'll be about people's economic security."

It's the economy stu...This is true - it is always true. All this money the dems are printing up and borrowing from china (while Obama lends 2 billion to Soros Brazilian Oil wells) has not produced jobs; except for the jobs in expansion of government.

By NEXT YEAR any economic recovery would be claimed by the democrats, so what the heck is Cantor thinking? WAIT til next year?

Much as Obama and crew have set a time-line for Healthcare to not even kick in until after the 2012 elections, the republicans fail to recognize how Obama has set up already for the economic improvement just before 2010 elections by having held back nearly all of the Stimulus Funds until then.Think about it. It's reported that nearly 700 billion is unspent - YET they already talk about another Stimulus Bill - that one would obviously need to kick in just about 2012.

IT is precisely the topics du jour that the republicans Should be addressing! Very loudly.
Which they are not doing.

Have you not seen the nations protests?

The GOP is missing their only chance to define themselves.

Cantor says about the economy, "But I do think with an eye toward 2010 that we do have to commit ourselves to the challenges that are not being addressed."

NO-sir. What you need to do is too challenge, in 2009, right now, today, what this Obama crew is doing to 'transform' America.

You may not have the Votes to stop them but you have a voice- and we aren't hearing it.

You give us people like this Dede Scozzofava (R) and think that she is the path to success??

If you can't beat 'em, get yourself assimilated?

This nutter Grayson (D) is followed around like a pop star because he creates controversy - when are any of you so called leaders going to create a counter platform to this Obama revolution?

Stand up and SHOUT Hell NO!

Shout it every day. All Day.

Next years economy my rear. By next year it will be Obama's economy and it won't have a structure that we recognize as free market capitalism.

If you can't yell hell No everyday and protest then you are not just the party of No - you are the party of Yes we can.

When asked about how he will pay for any initiatives, Cantor is quick to point out that the group is in a nascent stage: "We've identified the problems. And now we intend to bring in experts and look at solutions."

Though midterm elections tend to be referendums about the party in power, Republicans know that if they have any shot at regaining the majority, they have to give voters a reason to pull the lever for them.

Mr. Cantor- you haven't identified the problem. You want experts? Read the damned signs at Teaparty express gatherings.

You want to fill your coffers for re-election and get out the information? Then Stand up like Joe Wilson and call a liar and liar. Call this Marxist express a threat to America.

Cantor says the GOP has identified four areas of 'the problem'?
Only four? You want to give a reason to pull the lever for you?

How about these:

I won't join the ranks of any Obama unionized proletariat working party.

Take Obama's, to each his ability capped, job and shove it.

My grandchild will not be forced into AmeriCorps brown shirt servitude.

My freedom of speech and information will not be controlled by leftist localism.

My Constitution will not be changed without Amendment.

My path to information will not be stifled and silenced by threats of government retribution.

I will not be forced by Government to participate in a socialist health Ponzi scheme.

I will not be nudged into government behavioral modifications and taxed for my Pepsi sins.

I will no longer give up freedom for security.

I will not belong to the Global new World order.

I will not be dictated to by UN standards.

I will not agree to Obama's decree of too little government.

I will call a terrorist a terrorist.

I will never trade liberty in for what's good for me decreed and controlled by government.

I will not surrender choices.

My right to bear arms is my protection from invasion of tyranny.

My right to fail is my learning process.

My ability to succeed or fail is self-determination and not regulation.

I am an individual and not a brothers keeper of a collective body.

I will not participate in the Marxist brick by brick removal of capitalism and the opened pathway to communism.

International climate change agreement controlling Financial markets thru global government must not be signed.

Diversity does not mean that my own differences and objections will not be tolerated.

I will not have children being indoctrinated and modified in our schools.

I will no longer fear any label that allows political correctness to silence me.

I will not have Czars with UN_American values transforming America.

I will no longer be fooled by the words "social justice".

I will not have a President who is dishonest about where he is taking America.

I share sacrifice with whom I choose, I spread wealth through consumerism...If I want redistribution I will go to a garage sale.

Mr. Cantor, sir, You want an identity? You want reasons?

What the hell is the matter with you GOP people?

Don't you recognize the passion that moves people this last year?

You are not listening to the people. They have already developed the platform.

If you don't stand with the AMERICAN Obama resisters as their leader voices then you don't deserve to be re-elected by freedom seekers and they will continue to leave you and find people somewhere else who will stand up to the Marx model Obama is building every day.

I would rather be without a job than an apathetic employee of America's demise and a contributor to any leader who did nothing to stop it.

A Stimulus Bill written by communists...and we have to find out about it by Glenn Becks investigative researchers.

As more and more republicans drop out of registration the Party Leaders struggle to find an answer to what to DO to define themselves while trying to distance themselves from a label.

What to do...we've identified the problem that hasn't been addressed by the sitting Democrats...HEY! I know!! Let's think about jobs for next year...

That's the GOP delayed until 2010-plan as all this daily extremism of 'change' occurs.

As the GOP tries to figure a strategy out they are blind to the millions that would join them if they would actually stand up to Obama and say We are indeed the Party of NO!! and there ain't no dang way you are transforming America into a party of equally controlled have-nothing slaves.

A main Voice I hear objecting repeatedly to Obama's attack on America is:
Michele Bachmann

When the hell will Obama make a decision to Support our Military?

If I Die before You Wake: sung by Dustin Evans

Obama continues to avoid yes-no decisions and remains merely 'present'.

I can't write with civility about the "somber" photop-Obama standing there saluting those 18 cases of American bodies returning from Afghanistan in Dover today... As he golfs and shoots hoops he can't seem to make up his mind to follow his military generals advice to win this war, or too continue too stall for months placating his left anti-war constituency, while lives are being lost.

God bless our military and their families.

Dede Scozzafava : Why the GOP will Continue to Fail

Keep Friends close, and enemies closer...
Does the GOP think they have to become the opposition in order to pander to the Dems-friends' money and votes?

Are Republicans now so without their own values that the only thing that matters in the end is (R)?

The GOP in New York has given us liberal Dede Scozzafava, sponsored by ACORNs Working Families Party (a Marxist offshoot of The New Party that Obama was a member of in his first Senate race).

Newt Gingrich, who endorses Scozzafava, would have us believe it is none of our business what goes on in New York politics.


I don't live in the district - I am thousands of miles away from New York - but I use the word "us" because what the GOP does there, supported by Newt -who also doesn't live there- eventually effects us all when it comes to a candidates agendas and policies, values and votes; of their principles that will change our lives no matter where we live. Sometimes by a single vote.

Never forget, as one example, that in 2006 a Flag Burning Amendment, to protect our Flag, the symbol of our proud nation, Failed to pass by One Vote in the Senate.

Mr. Citizen of the world, Obama, who must have felt that desecration of the flag was an expression of patriotic speech behavior, voted to defeat it's protection from abuse and contempt.
One vote.

Scozzafava, Dierdre, AKA, pro abortion, pro gay marriage, pro-tax, social progressive, married to a community union organizer...supported by DailyKos - Bertha Lewis Workers Family Party- ACORN ...I don't even need to go on.

The GOP isn't just trying to 'appear' liberal to liberals.
They are actively allowing and supporting infiltration and change of leftist values not shared by their base, WHILE also trying to convince the NY conservative base that Dede is 'conservative!'.

The ideological record speaks for Dede.

Republicans like Sarah Palin, Fred Thomson, and Pawlenty are supporting Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman. Principle and values before party.

Republicans, like Newt Gingrich, say conservatives are abandoning the GOP to support "Conservative Party" candidate, Doug Hoffman (C).

That statement says a lot. Conservatives aren't abandoning the GOP. Once again the GOP has abandoned conservatives.
How ironic, I guess, that a conservative might want to support a conservative. Especially when the GOP choice is a liberal Democrat.

The problem they hammer at is the vote numbers will be divided between Hoffman (C) and DeDe (R) and thus deliver the win to the democrat Owens(D)...Owens says that Dede is even further left than he is.

We are always told don't waste your vote.

I'd say don't give us people who are wasting our vote then.

Let's face it. It's already a split vote!!
The division was ordained by the GOP.
In this case, you either vote for the liberal Democrat values, or you vote for the socialist backed liberal republican values.

They are the same.

Had the GOP given the (R) ticket to Hoffman to begin with their wouldn't be a GOP fear of wasting a vote through division.

This seat shouldn't have been OPEN anyway. When the Republicans were already seat shy of stopping the coming Obama transformation votes what does John McHugh do?? He excepts Obama's Secretary of the Army offer opening the seat to Obamamania.

This wasn't a bi-partisan move from Obama. It was a deliberate removal of one more Republican vote.
John McHugh should never hold a Republican seat ever again for his abandonment.

Hoffman is a person with the Republican and/or/ Conservative values. Yet the GOP gives us DeDe.

Then the party tells you don't vote for the person with your values?
Vote for the person who has none of your values because with your added numbers then Dede can beat a (D).

The Seat at any means or way.

A little late to be worrying about numbers; ask Mr. Secretary of the Army which no one has ever heard of again.

They think they can hang on to the Conservative vote numbers by relying on the threat of a (D) getting the seat - while at the same time trying to assimilate radical voter numbers to their side by using a radical as bait.
And then, blaming the actual Conservative as the reason for a loss.

The GOP is the reason for the loss if it occurs.
Especially if DeDe wins.

This is why the GOP will continue to fail as they sell out values for an (R) seat that they give to people who are loyal to opposition ideals, and vote FOR, upholding their own leftist standards once they get into position of power to 'change' power right out of repubs hands.

An (R) seat, that in the end, gives the GOP no principled voice to retain or explain any difference between a Democrat and a Republican.
An (R) seat that serves the opposition's power base while leftist money takes this seat even further to the left.
And the GOP wants people in NY to vote for this absurd chair of numbers because DeDe says she's a paper (R)?

This GOP continues to support their own demise.

What is the GOP thinking??

Independent sounds better everyday. That's where many conservatives are moving.

Here's what I say to the GOP.

Enlist candidates without radical ties who care about our Country first!

Stop giving us candidates who have an (R) by their name only.

Oath to the Constitution: Barack Obama's Birth Certificate

This week I got involved responding (in the comments area) to the ole Obama BC versus COLB controversy.
I'm not well read up on the issue though I followed many websites who did Tech work on the Bama COLB last year.
Texasdarling (seems to require a password now) and Atlas-shrugged had many Technical findings of COLB forgery explanations that I just couldn't follow or duplicate as a non-techie.
IF the Tech findings are accurate then the Obama COLB is a forgery.

The ridiculing Obama clan, who produce not a single image analysis expert of their own,(that I am aware of) quickly labeled anyone who believed in the findings to be "birthers" and settled on a term of endearment for "birthers" that they hold to be without question, self evident- birthers are idiots.

Oh, you're one of those poor delusional thing, you.

Here's the one thing - the foundational premise for being such a 'birther' tracks to a basic fundamental issue that should never be held in ridicule and contempt. Our Constitution.

In reality an Obama disdainfully labeled 'birther' is a constitutionalists seeking to have the Constitution upheld.

Alinsky tactics can never shame one for taking that position.

People across the land who have questioned Obama's 'constitutional' eligibility to the Office of POTUS in court after court have been turned away due to lack of what the 'justice' system calls lack of 'standing'.

I've never understood how American citizens have no legal standing when it comes to a constitutional issue being violated.
If a person is violating someones constitutional rights- he is first assumed innocent until proven guilty - but the case is not thrown out BEFORE the facts are presented by both sides and a judgment can be rendered on the evidence. Apparently this type of accusatory specified individualized constitutional 'injury' is acceptable as standing.

That was probably a bad example and or poorly explained - bottom line is if the Constitution Has Been violated all of these Judges who took an oath to uphold it, and protect it, have washed their hands of their responsibility too it, and turned their backs on the people who stand up for it, denying their day in court and due process.

Obama is being accused of perpetrating a fraud in violation of our Constitution which injures every individual.

The Constitution itself has been injured, if not mortally changed, without review or Amendment.

Historically our founding fathers had an absolute intent when they specified in Article II Section 1, Clause 5 that none other than a "natural born" citizen was qualified to hold the office of POTUS and command the armies of the US.

Natural born does not mean... without an epidural.

Vattel in 1758. In book one chapter 19, § 212. of Citizens and naturals.
The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights

Natural born means having both parents of US citizenship.

That is the definition of a “natural born Citizen,” as recognized by numerous U.S. Supreme Court and lower court decisions (The Venus, 12 U.S. 253(1814), Shanks v. Dupont, 28 U.S. 242 (1830), Scott v. Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1856), Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1875) , Ex parte Reynolds, 20 F. Cas. 582 (C.C.W.D. Ark 1879), United States v. Ward, 42 F. 320 (1890); Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898), Ludlam, Excutrix, & c., v. Ludlam, 26 N.Y. 356 (1863)

Obama's father was Not a US citizen. He was a British citizen who passed that citizenship to Obama Jr. when Obama was born.

Whether Obama was born in Hawaii, or on the moon, or whether the COLB is true or false, is probably keeping lots of us distracted from a more primary issue; and that is that Obama, at birth, without question, held Dual citizenships.

This is Unconstitutional.

Obama is not constitutionally eligible to hold the office of the President of the United States.

Will any citizen, natural or otherwise, ever get a day in court to return our documents intent to it's rightful nature?

Alan Keyes case is reported by Captain's Quarters to actually be scheduled with DATES to proceed.
Apparently Mr. Keyes run for president is considered, so far, as the only 'individual' who may have been 'injured' by a dishonest Birth-defect action of Obama.
But, everywhere one reads the Judge in the case appears to be doing some back-peddling and squirrely things. He reportedly hired one of Obama's legal team as a clerk? I would say he wants to be disqualified. Case to be passed on to someone who will throw it out.

I also fear this Orly Taitz case will be a terrible blow in further attempts to bring any future cases due to this Kenyan BC that is being presented to the court that looks as phony as an Obama promise.

I have no faith that a court will ever proceed and find in favor of the people of the United States. The Obama liberal judges won't go against clan principle and the Constitutionalists judge just won't chance shouting "fire" in our theater.

So how do we enforce our constitution if the courts won't?

I thought a lot about this and I have come up with an idea.

First we MUST make sure that in 2010 the House and Senate majority is replaced by strong constitutional Honest Independent and Republican patriots. (Many Republican's need to be replaced also!)
Without these, balancing power, the social-Marxist-Maoist changers will continue to implement Obamas' conquest policies for another full 2 years.

Then the idea is: We must insist through letters and emails and calls that this new majority of representatives produce a BILL that all future presidential candidates MUST produce for inspection an original long form BC. The BILL must also clarify that a "natural born" citizen is a child born of TWO US citizens as to the intent of the founding fathers in prohibiting dual citizen allegiance.

Now, having thought this over for about 3 days look what I came across when I asked google search if anyone has thought about writing a BILL...(I'm always months behind with ideas :)

The Presidential Eligibility Act (H.R. 1503) - March 12, 2009

Washington, May 15 - On March 12, 2009 Congressman Posey introduced H.R. 1503, a bill to amend the Federal Election Campaign Act to require beginning in 2012, the principal campaign committee of a candidate for election to the Office of President to include with the committee's statement of organization documentation (including a birth certificate) as may be necessary to establish that the candidate meets the qualifications for eligibility to the Office of President under the Constitution.

..."meets the qualifications for eligibility to the Office of President under the Constitution."

This Bill has gone no-where; it languishes in Committee.

Too my fellow readers -In your travels to strong major informational sites you might want to remind people who don't know about this Bill that it will need support and point them to the Congressman's website.
Be sure to ask for a "natural citizen" intent clause to be in it.

Cheers! Have a gd day.

Obama bans Fox News from Press Pool: The Press Pool Members Back FOX!

The Obama administration has made it clear that in order for Obama 'change' to occur freedom of speech and expression must be silenced by shutting down access too, and reporting of, information that citizens are entitled to know.
OH, and don't dare to assemble to protest or be ridiculed as insignificant astroturfers, racists, and domestic terrorists.

Alan Grayson (D-FL), who gets nuttier by the week, has stated that Fox news is the enemy of America and an enemy of peace.

Axelrod and Emanuel state Fox is not a News organization.

Following these type of (pre-positioned?) announcements this White House announced that the FOX News Network would not be able to conduct an interview of "Pay Czar" Kenneth Feinberg as a member of the Press Pool.
The Pool is a five-member group consisting of ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News and NBC organized by the White House Correspondents Association.

The Pool Members stepped up to the free press plate and told the White House (Obama-Dunn) if Fox is out, then we are out.
They wouldn't allow the WH to tell them how to behave and who was entitled to News and who was not.

Had the Obama House succeeded in enlisting these News organizations, in this media corp separation coup, you can bet the farm that FOX would have been excluded from any and all future interviews.

When you think about the Obama chess board of czars and their radical ideologies this move may have been more than a simple behavioral modification warning to Fox - as a functional test case it could very well have been a prelude to just how far Mark Lloyd would have been able to goose-step onto the playing field with his Marxist FCC changes without objections.

Obama wrongly identified his liberal media coalition as being pawns in the drool bag.

Do these Networks at last finally recognize that if they relinquish media control to Obama all is lost?

After years now of ignoring the best interests of the people in our country are they finally at least responding to their own selfish best interests? Or are they truly taking a stand for free undictated press?

We can only HOPE.

I will hold off on applause, and thanks, (though-I did shout YES!!) until I see the tingle is being replaced by an itch to uncover and transmit politicized truths too people and start being America's watchdogs rather than Obama's attack dogs.

Obama backed off and allowed Fox News to attend and interview his "Pay Czar" Kenneth Feinberg.


To keep the message clear that dissent will still be punished, much like a Humanna gag order, the regular 5 minute interview sessions were cut to two minutes each.

This is a small example of the Obama promised unity at work.

It does go to show- when people stick together - and say NO you CAN'T! that the Obama Marx locomotive can be slowed down. Obama has lots of unconstitutional engineered boxcars lined up, on track, and ready to roll.

This 'all fired up' Obama War on American values, and it's peoples', must be completely derailed.

"Our liberty cannot be guarded but by the freedom of the press, nor that be limited without danger of losing it." --Thomas Jefferson to John Jay, 1786.

Hawaiian NewsPaper Collusion?? : All isn't Ducky in the Obama Wave State?

A few days back I saw UP Headlines - first at one of the sites that link me in their feed - can't recall which - but I do recall reading at the Free Republic site about this "KENYAN-BORN" 2004 East African Standard article.
I plugged it into google wanting to see where my site came in since I had already posted this article 14 months ago. I didn't get indexed or I am being blocked again...wth?

I wanted too address this "KENYAN-BORN" 2004 article.

Sorry, but I don't see what the excitement is all about?

As I point out in my own Kenyan-born 2008 notes, (at the bottom of the page in the above link) aprox. 7 days later, at the very same Standard paper, another author wrote that Obama was NOT Kenyan born.

Does one cancel another?

Which is accurate?

There are MANY papers who say he is foreign born- there are far more that say he is Hawaiian born.

Whichever it is may never be discovered unless a Judge with some red white and blue gonads finally allows standing and discovery.

Where is the 'truth' and why has Obama gone to such extraordinary lenghts to hide and seal up all records of his past?

Personally I don't see how anyone who sneers at people questioning Obama and labeling them 'birthers' have any standing while ignoring all of the substantial discovery.

There are far too many unsavory facts about Obama's past and present too ignore. Far too many documented lies.

It is reported Obama has given Lawyers around one million (updated figure:$1,666,397.01 ) dollars to keep anyone from seeing his birth certificate and prevent anyone from getting a day in court.


What, are you flippin' a coin? Easy to avoid all of these lawsuits. Just show the dang BC and keep a million bucks...

Please- don't tell me he already did with the COLB - remember his sister was born out of country and she reportedly HAS a Hawaiian COLB also.

Of all the technical examinations and claims of Pshopped COLB forgery I make no opinion based on those findings. I just don't know.
BUT - the one glaring problem I have with the COLB is where it says:
Father's Race: African.
There is no such RACE.

Please- don't point me in the direction of a Hawaiian Newspaper, showing Obama's birth 9 days After he was born, and scoff sarcastically about how mama must have known her kid would one day be president so she signed him up.

IF Barry was born out-country then Booking lil bams name into a USA newspaper had nothing to do with a natural born status - registering would have been, imo, for the sole purpose of receiving an opportunistic citizen document enabling those grand ole demo "U.S." entitlement hand-outs for mama and son.

Getting away from my point again - Newspapers regarding Obama can be, and have been, changed.

A lot of changes with Obama and his Nobel Cease sized crew.

I have listed here on this site alone 3-4 News articles that were scrubbed entirely and several speech transcripts that were changed.

Anything can be re-written.

Today I saw @ The Captain's Quarters web page a site in the blog roll mentioning the Kenyan - Born 2004 article at Alan Keyes site... in the comment section a Jeff Jones and Captain Steve point out that an original article from the Honolulu Advertiser CHANGED the Sunday, January 8, 2006 article stating that Obama was foreign born.

from article:
"Duckworth is happy to point out that she and Hawai'i-raised Punahou graduate Obama have "a kama'aina connection."

"Both were born outside the country — Obama in Indonesia, Duckworth in Thailand — and graduated from high school in Honolulu — Punahou and McKinley, respectively."

A poster, Jeff Jones, @ Keyes site points out the page scrubbing, and adds:

This morning the same page at same URL says:
"Duckworth is happy to point out that she and Hawaii-raised Punahou graduate Obama have "a kama'aina connection."

Both graduated from high schools in Honolulu — Punahou and McKinley, respectively."

This part of the original article has been removed: "Both were born outside the country — Obama in Indonesia, Duckworth in Thailand — and graduated from high school in Honolulu — Punahou and McKinley, respectively."

Ok, so we can add Indonesia to the list of papers to further confuse the issue while also further fueling opposition feedback and name calling...Such a grand Unifier this Obama - but that's not my issue today.

The scrubbing of the text is the issue. That and the shell game that continues to be played on all of us trying to get to the clusterducked bottom of the Obama truth barrel.

This text was not just cleaned up but the new page at the very same URL (at the top of page) now says:

CORRECTION: A correction on this story was published on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2006: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was born in Honolulu on Aug. 4, 1961. A Page One story last Sunday contained incorrect information about his birthplace.

Fine, they made a correction--- nothing to see here - moveon.fightthesmears net- fabricators obscured another one ...

NOT so fast son - ...A correction on this story was published on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2006...


I've looked at the Sunday 15th 2006 Back-Issues page, and also in same date archiveorg pages.

I sure don't see it.

I looked, and looked, and that purported correction, even in the newspapers CORRECTION LINK, just isn't there.

The original page was indexed all the way up until Sept. of 2007 - and no removal-correction of any Text in body of article is displayed. Nor any note at top of any of the archived pages of a correction.

As of just a few days ago this exact same URL did not contain this Sanitized corrective message.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Somebody at "HA" needs to explain themselves and point out the article's location as Titled...

I'd lay odds, from this country's legion of ObamaNation politic gatekeepers, that just won't happen.

update: This morning I found this on scribd :
GETTING IT STRAIGHT - The Honolulu Advertiser: Archives

Honolulu Advertiser - Honolulu, Hawaii
Date: Jan 15, 2006

8/29/09 9:31 PM is a pay for service. It would appear from this paid for search by a ladysaidy that a correction was found in the Honolulu archives on 8/29/09.
I do not use my credit card online for such things so do not know if it's actually an accurate representation, or when it may have been added too an archive; but it does appear to be listed.

The bottom line, so unfortunately, is that when you have a person who is caught in so many lies one just can not 'trust' anything that person says.
When there has been so much erasing, changing, and disappearance of so many documents especially by the media you can't trust them either.

It is still clear that someone added the "correction" only in this last week to the original page - but unclear if there was an actual correction in 2006. Unfortunately, just as the example above shows, the archives could have been manipulated just as the original article was...

Now I'm curious why someone was looking up the 'correction' on 8/29/09 9:31 PM.

Actually- it's a distraction I'll skip.

Some papers state Obama was foreign born - some are adamant about Hawaii - I've read Canada and Seattle and I'm pretty sure I read somewhere he's a space alien too.

I calls em how I sees em - gathering info as I go - and I think this one, as a suspicious cover-up, is in the dead file. The Paper DID change the original page- but there may have been an actual retraction the following week according to the archive listed above.

In this dishonest change-Obamanation one just never knows for sure - do one?

Transforming America making-O-progress: Apartment residents told to take down U.S. flags

ALBANY, Ore. - At the Oaks Apartments in Albany, the management can fly their own flag advertising one and two bedroom apartments - but residents have been told they can't fly any flags at all.

Jim Clausen flies the American flag from the back of his motorcycle. He has a son in the military heading back to Iraq, and the flag - he said - is his way of showing support.

"This flag stands for all those people," said Clausen, an Oaks Apartment resident. "It stands for the people that can no longer stand - who died in wars. That's why I fly this flag."

But to Oaks Apartment management, Clausen said, the American flag symbolizes problems.

He was told to remove the red, white and blue from both of his rides, or face eviction.

"It floored me," he said. "I can't believe she was saying what she was saying."

Even long-time residents like Sharron White, who has flown a flag on her car for eight years, has been told to take it down.

White said management told her that "someone might get offended."

"Someone might get offended."

Progressive Freedom of liberal speech means they can burn it, and piss on it, but you can't salute it, or fly it.

This revolutionary diversity dissembling of our countries cultural foundations isn't new. It has been building a structural social tear down, and rebuild, machine for decades.

Banning our USA Flag is happening, and has been happening, all across the land...because our proud flag might offend intolerant people with diverse opinions regarding it's historical symbolism ...(or as apologist Mr. WORLD himself could be expected to say over tea at Ayers house with Iminnadinajacket)

...with all it's flaws...

Remember Obama says, "I don’t mind people wearing pins or putting stickers on their cars as a show of support for their country or their cause. I am, however, irritated by the notion that so doing makes them somehow superior to those who don’t."

I'll say it again - It's so nice of Obama to not mind people showing their support for their country, isn't it? ...but what irritates me, is the notion that Obama doesn't seem to understand that The symbol of the USA, it's pins, stickers and Flag, does not make people feel superior.
Mr. Obama --- it makes them feel "PROUD!"

Barry O's 'superior' flag symbol comment foretold his apologizing for America's supposed flawed transgressions and trespasses on the world, to the world.

The manager, Barb Holcomb, of this Apt. complex, who enables America hating agitating complainers, trained by bitter seeking people like dealer Obama, ought to hire an ACORN Boat and get all of your sensitive, fellow traveling, irritated butts the Ef out of our country.

If you Marx Pushers don't like it in America, don't change it - just get the hell out.

update: Upon further review: Flag ban lifted

Healthy Change: The Serving Obama ACT - lest We Forget

There is no blue - there is no red- there is no division... there is only America.


A not so funny thing happened on the way to the progressive non-divisive socialist polls - Mr. Unity is changing America into a Soviet style dictatorship.

Some changes are so subtle that none even are aware they have taken place. I digress a little here, but, I was asked the other day 'when do you think Obama will try to get his civilian security force set up?'

Gee- didn't you know? Congress already passed it's formation and funding while we were asleep.
Obama signed The GIVE- "Serve America Act" H.R. 1388 into law waaaay back in April- yep right down to UNIFORMS.
Our kids will be wards of the Obama state of infusion.

This SERVE Obama's Community ACT originally had MANDATORY servitude of our children as volunteers written in it. Mandatory.

Feeling that the mandatory language requirement might keep the first step of progressive slave advancement from passing in the Serve America Act the Mandatory text was switched to establish the Civic Service Act HR 1444...a Mandatory service and academy study.

It is of course a further indoctrination of our kids into the servitude of the liberal politic block during years of mentor processing and orientation.

Re-education camps.

Tiny obscured steps. Yet right in your face.

Millions of people are not laughing. Millions of people are still asleep.

Congress, who's approval rating is down to 22%, continues unabated to slam unpopular Marxist changes down our throats. For an entity with such little support their 'power' marches on as if the 88% mean nothing more than distraction. The locked and loaded Judicial branch swat every attempt to bring back order to the constitution and preservation of lawful grievance as if 'standing' is only reserved for those who can somehow survive amputation of their tongues, starting at their knees.
The media reports nothing on any of these UnAmerican changes and when they do report on Americans who stand up and say "NO YOU CAN'T!" they are labeled right wing terrorists, republican mobs, AstroTurf nothings, or Fox news extremists. If the left news shows up and reports at all on events taking place across the nation they seek out and show only what they think will bleed in their political biased favor. People carrying 'wacko' signs...even if they saw groups of them get off of ACORN buses.

Obama yesterday declared war on FOX news - the ONLY media outlet providing information on what is going on in Obama's nation. The newest Obama rabble rouser, Anita Dunn, says FOX is a right arm of the Republicans. Politically Biased...first off- are you kidding me? The other 20 TV stations aren't Obama swooning tentacles of lefty leg tingling bias? Second - FOX is the only station left/right/ that gives both sides of a story. Third- the ratings show that because the other stations are NOT keeping people informed, people come to FOX to keep up to date on the silenced behind the scenes transformation of America.

The community organizing, tax paid for, speech police attacks from the White House Compound upon FOX fails to understand that they are also attacking the people of America who listen to FOX. In multiplying numbers.

To punish FOX Obama says he won't be doing any interviews with them. Besides being tired of viewing his face on every channel I click through we all know the real reason Obama won't do any interviews is because he would be asked unscripted questions without his puppet props and pre-arranged propaganda.

Today is an important day in American life.

Today we find out how far down the soyent red road of government control will be enacted upon us by this in your face Congress.

This health Bill is not a reformation of Insurance Companies - this is a referendum on control and containment of free people.

The Bill contains expenses of 829 Billion dollars.
So if I get this right- 83% of Americans are now covered - and in order to cover just 11% more people it will cost 82.9 Billion dollars per year.
(Are the remaining 6% going to cost somebody 40 billion more per year in uncovered costs then? Isn't that figure more like 1.2 trillion over ten years?)
After all of the got to get it done, and cover everyone rhetoric - it is reported some 29 million peeps will be uninsured.

Phuzzy math. Phurry feeling. Phoney phonics.

In the words of a well known JAWS quote: We're gona need a bigger jail! Anyone know of a Montana Baucus jail with openings??

Leaving behind for a moment that government spending has us hundreds of trillions of dollars in debt, and they NEVER have balanced a checkbook with their excesses causing every man woman and child owing 343,000 dollars each and growing by the second - forgetting they have never properly regulated anything - what we keep hearing is another 829 Billion is OK so long as the cost doesn't add to the federal deficit...why do we, even IF an accurate amount, keep ignoring that it COSTS 829 BIILION?

Econ-101, someone still has to pay for the 829 BILLION and it isn't gona be Congress with their sweetheart health care.
Who pays?
Forget about the mandatory (free) 1900 fine, or one year in jail if you don't pay a 25,000 buck fine for not being able or willing to pay the fine; forget about the cost of the plan already costing you more than you are paying now by $2,700 too $4,000 a year; I mean why argue.
All these millionaires like Charlie Rangle get away with not paying fines, penalties, taxes, and serving jail time, so why can't you?

Forget about the 11 million illegals who will be conscripted into the Dem party when they pass amnesty expecting pay-back-
Forget about the open borders that will still allow millions more to step across the Obama health care freedom act zone - forget about the 3 million in jail who will actually get free zu zu and wham wham health care -
Forget about the 15 million unemployed who geeeee - can keep their insurance through COBRA even though it costs MORE and you don't have a blasted JOB to continue paying for it anyhow. Have i forgot to add in the millions of government healthy employees who get the special tax paid coverage that won't be contributing to our forced choice of a plan??
Forget about the millions of poor who will be subsidised by those who will have their own rates go up to cover those supplementals. Forget these are the very same poor who go to hospitals now whom we are told have driven medical costs up. Forget if you have ever tried to qualify as being poor enough to receive medical insurance with your clerk estimated $2,500 and one dollar vehicle (that you couldn't get 50 bucks for) that disqualifies you from getting any State help.

Forget about the intrusions into your Bank accounts and IRS filings.

Forget about your preconditional non covered malady that insurance will be forced to give you at a costs you still can not afford.
Forget completely that every amendment the opposition has written to protect citizens from these compulsory Bills have been voted down.
Forget the Conscience Clause that Obama will revoke forcing doctors to treat for abortions. Forget about the 45% of Doctors who say they will just quit if the Plan passes. Forget about the new doctors coming up through schools who Obama's Health Care Czar, Ezekiel, believes will need to be re-taught the non benefits of a do no harm Hippocratic OATH. Forget that the oath and the patient is disposable when that care is too costly; try to forget harm to the Obama system of cost containment outweighs the patients expectation of actual care.
Forget about a non capitalist system in which a doctors education costs can not be sustained by a gov system that reduces costs by reducing doctors pay.
Forget about a medical schooling system with reduced semesters to compensate the high cost of education giving us doctors prepared by third world training camps.

Forget about government run medical services like Medicare-medicaid-Medi-cal-Veterns Medical- all in the red tank. Broke and Broken.
Forget about Massachusetts(I'll spell it right later-maybe) mandatory health system that is broke and seeks federal help.
Forget about the Oregon State Run WE-CARE system who will assist you in a 50 dollar medication-suicide rather than expend capital to extend your life with treatment.

Come on, gather round like a good lil collective and forget that some things have to get done in small Monte steps. As Obama said in his "ME lie??" speech, "To my progressive friends"... Get your foot in the door and kick the competitive capitalist wall down later. Patience comrades. Or some such message.

Now, did I forget to mention MANDATORY participation? A lot of that going 'round.

Forget about the massive distributive bureaucracy to keep TRACK of, who does- who doesn't- who has- who has not- who will- who will not -
Forget they've told us how many zillions they will save on bureaucracy and paperwork.

Forget about that doctor who wants to yank your tonsils - you'll get to take some pills and keep them.

Forget about employers who will continue to have to get rid of people because health costs will continue to rise from this plan that doesn't address anything but TAX-FINE-PENALIZE_ to pay for a health system that

Oh wait, that brings me back full circle too Econ-101 which was my basis for all this forgetfulness...If the plan does nothing more, if it did NOTHING more at all, than to tax Insurance companies and medical labs and medical products then that industry HAS TO PASS the cost on to the consumer.
Premiums have to go up. In fact premiums have to go UP in EXCESS of whatever the natural-unnatural astronomical unaffordable BS costs that has been going up each year now.
The industry can not survive imposed regulations without passing costs on to health care payers. But you can go ahead and KEEP your insurance so long as they can survive. Right?
Regulated Forced Cost Increases (to what purpose one must ask) when the purpose we are fed for hurry up reform is to get costs down.

These Bills' proposals do no such thing. Health care costs are not lessened.

Freedom of CHOICE is not increased by mandate choices.

The only element of cost savings in any of these health care plans is the human cost effectiveness element. Rationing.

Remember Howard Dean standing there telling a crowd that the reason there is no tort reform in any bills is because the LAWYERS wouldn't have gone for it. A reported 400 Billion dollar savings that could reduce our premiums. NO-NO! This of course while they won't listen to everyday people who also say they won't go for it. For some weird reason Dems think all protests are republicans whose campaign dollars they won't get anyway - so screw you.

You think they won't take your DEM health care dollars, like they are taking the seniors, to pay for their other special social entitlements and bankrupt Health Care like they did Social Security?

When you stop looking at the talking head options and look at the body of this compulsory transformation of America there is no beneficial welfare to anyone except the progressive Marx agenda and Obama's redistribution of power.

It is the "change" Obama was talking about to those who understood the language.

Apparently while I have been writ ting this, this draconian Baucus Health Bill, which reportedly no one has read, because as code of guidelines it really hasn't even been written yet, has passed the Senate.
Olympia Snowe, who has become a servant of Obama Alinsky-nomics, voted in favor of Obamacare usage against the will of the majority of American people who said "Leave our health care alone".

Obama calls Snowe's cross-over support a bi-partisan victory.

I wonder what Hugo Chavez calls it?

Obama's transformation Change: Now is the time for all good comrades to come to the aid of the revolution.

Will we wake up in time?

Congressman Steve King to Obama: FIRE Jennings NOW!

Lawmaker sends letter to Obama: Fire Jennings now

Washington Examiner
By: Byron York
Chief Political Correspondent
10/06/09 2:08 PM EDT
Republican Rep. Steve King is sending a letter to the president today calling for the firing of gay activist Kevin Jennings, head of the Education Department's Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools. "The totality of Mr. Jennings' career has been to advocate for public affirmation of homosexuality," King writes. "There is more to safe and drug free schools than can be accomplished from the narrow view of Mr. Jennings who has, for more than 20 years almost exclusively focused on promoting the homosexual agenda."

In the letter, King points to a foreword Jennings wrote for a 1999 book entitled Queering Elementary Education, as well as Jennings' work as founder of the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network. King also mentions a 1988 incident in which Jennings, then a teacher, chose not to alert any authorities when he learned of a teenage boy, a student, who had become involved with an adult man. Finally, King points to stories Jennings has told of his own drug use. "Kevin Jennings cannot gain the approval of parents who want their children safe and their schools drug free," King writes.

King is the first member of Congress to call for Jennings' removal. Here is the entire text of the letter to the president:

Dear Mr. President,

I respectfully request that you remove Kevin Jennings, the Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools. It is clear that Mr. Jennings lacks the appropriate qualifications and ethical standards to serve in this capacity.

Mr. Jennings life’s work has been the promotion of homosexuality, much of it in our elementary schools. As the founder of the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), Mr. Jennings has played an integral role in promoting a pro-homosexual agenda in America’s schools. As evidence of this, Kevin Jennings wrote the foreword for a book titled Queering Elementary Education: Advancing the Dialogue About Sexualities and Schooling. Throughout his career, Mr. Jennings has made it his mission to establish special protections for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered students. The totality of Mr. Jennings’ career has been to advocate for public affirmation of homosexuality. There is more to safe and drug free schools than can be accomplished from the narrow view of Mr. Jennings who has, for more than 20 years, almost exclusively focused on promoting the homosexual agenda.

Equally troubling is Mr. Jennings’ self-reported history of ignoring the sexual abuse of a child. In his book, One Teacher in Ten, Mr. Jennings recounts a 15-year old student confiding in him that he had sexual relations with a much older man. Mr. Jennings’ only response was to ask if the underage boy used a condom. Kevin Jennings was a mandatory reporter who was required by law to report child abuse, including sex crimes. If the victim had been a 15-year old girl with a 25-year old man, I suspect Mr. Jennings might have obeyed the law but his career of promoting the homosexual agenda likely affected his judgment. Mr. Jennings cannot serve as the “safe schools” czar when his record demonstrates his willingness to overlook sexual abuse of a child.

As the “safe school” czar, Mr. Jennings is also charged with ensuring our schools and students are drug free. It is clear that Mr. Jennings is unfit to serve in this capacity, as well. His own history of unrepentant drug and alcohol abuse indicates that he is of the opinion that getting drunk and high as a young person is acceptable. In his memoir, Mama’s Boy, Preacher’s Son, Mr. Jennings describes his use of illegal drugs, without expressing regret or acknowledging the devastating effects illegal drug use can have on a person’s life.

Everyone that deals with the education of the most vulnerable must be a positive role model. Our children are not blessed with the wisdom to discern and reject. Children presume the adults who educate them are approved by the larger society and their parents. Kevin Jennings cannot gain the approval of parents who want their children safe and their schools drug free. Perhaps you could replace him with someone who has a record of nurturing and educating children in a safe and moral environment. Given the very serious issues with Mr. Jennings’ record, I urge you to remove him immediately.


Steve King
Member of Congress

If history repeats itself - and it does- This letter will get about as much response as Mr. King's letter back in March to disqualify Obama's Legal Council, Ms. Dawn pro-life-is-servitude-to-the-state, Johnsen. (who is expected to be confirmed any day now.)

Obama's Approval Ratings Rise?? How is this possible?

It is being reported that Obama's Approval Ratings Rise...
A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds 56% of those surveyed approve of President Obama's job performance, up from 50% in September. It's the first time since he took office in January that his rating has gone up.

People also feel better about his handling of the economy and his proposed health care overhaul.

How in smokin' global mirror hell is this possible?

Unemployment continues to rise to a staggering 15 million and it's predicted to get worse - before it gets better.
We then have Joe the Biden exclaiming that he is amazed how well the Stimulus Bill has provided for the countries recovery. As Biden dines on his illusions and politic allusion recovery-stake perhaps the unemployed are far too busy trying to figure out how to make it day to day to participate in boiler room polls.

The Health Nut Bills have been completely rejected by the majority of non-jailed Americans. This newest pay or be fined version from the Finance Committee is no less draconian or costly than any of the other unconstitutional bills. There still isn't a freedom of no-choice consensus among the dems'- yet we are being told that polls show ObamaGovCare support, of controlling our lives from pre birth until death do ye part, has risen this week?
Must have been all those white coats that were passed out in the Rose Garden to Obama's propaganda doc-tured props.

Obama leaves his Generals' request for additional troops on his desk for a month as he trots off to Copenhagen to lobby for Valerie Jarrett's Chicago Real Estate Improvements and in the same week he gets his beret handed to him his approval polls go up?

Good patriotic Americans far out number the red radical left but Obama's approval rises during the time period he shuts down democracy in Honduras and hits them with aid sanctions to force them to return Communist bound Dictator Zelaya to power. How is this possible?

Obama has tried and succeeded in fascist take over of financial Banking and Lending institutions, Auto Companies, broken lien laws, forced people to resign private positions, enacted Wage ceilings, promised global collectivism and financial crates of dollars spread to the have-nots taken from the have's, and we are being told today that his approval ratings are on the rise?

Those that struggle to remain free in the media field are threatened to be silenced. Plans are in the works to muzzle Internet speech with Obama's individual power to shut down communications and I read from media feeders of such polling truth that Obama's new and improved statist Constitutional changes are chugging up the I love you charts.?

Obama is spending our country into a financial collapse, that in true Alinsky style, will open the door to the masses pleading to be rescued. To organize one must fundamentally destroy in order to reorganize. Americans from sea to sea have become aware of the Obama change and are resisting in droves and yet we are told Obama's collective agenda is being met with rising approval.

Obama's global buddies want to change the monetary system away from the dollar and are making oil deals that will shut us out, and shut us down. Obama sends bucks to Brazil for Soros oil exploration while keeping America's own oil independence beholden to submission too terrorist energy. Are these foreign people sitting at phone banks conducting their own polls? Cause I just don't get it.

Obama's WHO (White House Organization) answers to no-one. This round table of outed radical czars and fellow travelers have some of the most despicable backgrounds and extremist ideas for the fundamental change of America's social architecture and yet Obama's approval rating has taken a positive upward spike?

OBama refuses to meet with the peaceful Dalia lama but he'll meet with maniac Ahmadinejad without conditions. (gosh I'm tired of asking google how to sprell that iminnadinnajackets name.)

The real picture is that the majority of polls, of EVERY issue, except participation in the Afghan war which is even, has Obama failing.

Ask yourself, what has Obama done that brings his ratings up?


It is an illusion of the bogus co-operative manipulation-machines of staged white coat reality.

Obama no show at Czars Hearing: Too Busy Supporting Honduras totalitarianism

As Obama goes on supporting the plans of the (Chavez backed) dictatorship proposed by that of rightfully and lawfully deposed President Manuel Zelaya, Obama is a no-show at the hearings calling for investigation into the constitutionality and duties of Obama's czars.

Obama sent not one representative to the hearings to explain himself - to anyone.

Don't ask- won't tell.

In Honduras Obama has turned his back on democracy in favor of his communist brothers.

There was a constitutional transfer of power to Roberto Micheletti in Honduras after then president Zelaya attempted to change the constitution to allow himself to remain in power.
The Supreme Court stepped in to prevent Zelaya's unconstitutional coup and removed him from the country to prevent his inciting Chavez backed riots.

In an attempt to force the Honduran government to return power to the threatening dictator Zelaya, the United States under Obama has revoked the visa of Roberto Micheletti and the 14 supreme court judges.

Although the next election cycle is scheduled for November Obama has told temporary president Micheletti and the Honduran Government that those elections will not be recognized. All nonhumanitarian aide has been stopped.

Return Zelaya to power or else.

Just as Obama turned his back on the Iranian people demanding democratic justice in the streets of Iran after corrupt elections so too Obama has turned his back on one of the only pro-American countries left in South America.

The people of Honduras are shocked by the one dependable defender of freedom in the world turning it's power switch to off.

Zelaya is backed by Hugo Chavez, Ortega, the Cuban brothers Castro, and now Obama.

Though Obama answers to no one, congress, the American people, the media, he did make time to sacrifice the Dalia lama in favor of China today.

Our new foreign and domestic policy- turn our backs on good people - and stand for Obama's special interests.

How much RED do we have to see before people get it?

Gen McChrystal battles Obama to win War?

by greybeard

It is reported that Obama is furious with General Stanley McChrystal who has said he is firmly against half measures in Afghanistan: "You can't hope to contain the fire by letting just half the building burn."

Mr Obama has only met Gen McChrystal once since McChrystals' appointment in June. That is one time more than Obama met with anybody for discussions when he was head of the Afghan War Committee during his equally unattended Senate tenure.
His 25 minute road trip conference on the airport tarmac in Copenhagen with his general was shorter than the time spent to convince Olympic officials to bring the Games to the gangland War torn streets of Chicago.

Gen McChrystal, who heads the 68,000 US troops in Afghanistan as well as the 100,000 Nato forces, flatly rejected proposals to switch to a strategy more reliant on drone missile strikes and special forces operations against AL-Qaeda.

He told the Institute of International and Strategic Studies that the formula, which is favoured by Vice-President Joe Biden, would lead to "Chaos-istan".

When asked whether he would support it, he said: "The short answer is: No."

He went on to say: "Waiting does not prolong a favorable outcome. This effort will not remain winnable indefinitely, and nor will public support."

The remarks have been seen by some in the Obama administration as a barbed reference to the slow pace of debate within the White House.

An adviser to the administration said: “People aren’t sure whether McChrystal is being naive or an upstart. To my mind he doesn’t seem ready for this Washington hard-ball and is just speaking his mind too plainly.”

So as always when one doesn't agree with Obama out come the name calling disablers.
Naive - upstart ball or shut up.

Back in Obama campaign days when 'public support' was against Iraq- and pro Afghanistan - Obama liked to point out that Afghanistan was the 'right' war and that all efforts should have been directed there.

It appears, as predicted, Obama is making no efforts to listen to his commanders on the ground. Commanders of military expertise (of which Obama has no experience other than organizing on the ground anti-war militant communist rabbleradicals) began criticising the White House for failing to tackle the issue more quickly.

Obama who was 'against the Iraq Surge' and commented one would never know whether or not adding troops in Iraq would have been a successful stragedy without them - is ignoring history- it did work.

Gen McChrystal has made it clear that winning the war requires more troops. Supporting the lives of the troops, now there, requires additional troops. He has predicted 'failure' without 40,000 more troops.

Meanwhile yesterday another 8 military people died in Afghanistan while Obama flits around the world flexing his ego or beginning this week gathering together white coat props on the White House to promote his personal socialist health agenda.

Does Obama want to win the war in Afghanistan or return it to the land of terrorist training camps?

Why does Obama hesitate?

What will happen to purple fingered believers of democratic freedom if the Taliban move back in unopposed?

One is reminded of the liberal surrender in which Pol Pot slaughtered 3 million when it was decided that defeat was a more popular voting block than victory voices.

Must be one of those 'shared sacrifice' memos.

An Obama advisor (James Jones; xgeneral?) came out today saying there is no danger of the Taliban returning to power...are you kidding me? Who the hell does Obama and his propaganda minions think are attacking and killing our brave troops? Does this Obama think-tank want us to believe that the Taliban will simply disappear back into the hills and dissolve if Americans go home?

The Taliban are fighting to return to power and anyone who says differently is a fool. The Taliban will provide safe haven for Al-Qaeda who won't have to hide out in POKistan any longer and will be untouchable by POKistan troops.

I hesitate to say, because the land will be returned to unfettered terrorist training, and we will surely have to deal with terrorists again because of Obama rule, but Mr. Obama , if you are not going to WIN this war, and do whatever it takes to WIN this War and support and protect the men and women fighting it, then you need to bring our sons, daughters, dads and moms, Home.

They are dying there while Obama ignores his field commander who wants to at least TRY to win the war and protect his troops and in so doing- protect America.

We are all quite sure that McChrystal's McArthur leadership stance, with words that matter, will cause his military future in Afghansistan to be as short lived as Obama's promise in Prague to go forward with the missile defense system...

Gen McChrystal, sir, you are a patriot! Please continue being a voice that won't be silenced.

9-12 Moms : reConnecting America to family and values

Connect with Mom's and families in your area to help re-organize America.
The Obama change machine began decades ago taking over school boards , city councils, infiltrating local and state government -community by community- district by district- it is far past time to take the pages of these radicals' handbooks and tear them up and rewrite the deplorable value system they have shoved down our necks.

Many-many-many- people think they are alone. What can i do?
Join others to Take your community back. Take back your children's schools! Join others to take your country back. Do not capitulate to labels that have silenced you.

Being tolerant of the intolerant has nearly swung the pendulum of liberty and freedom out of reach.
Use their 'collective' system against them. Organize. Issues rather than party. Organize for GOOD.

The Queering of America: Kevin Jennings' Social Conditioning of our kids in schools

see some of my notes on Obama's Safe School czar Kevin Jennings

Queering the Schools
by Marjorie King

At a high school in prosperous Newton, Massachusetts, it’s “To B GLAD Day”—or, less delicately, Transgender, Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian Awareness Day. An advocacy session for students and teachers features three self-styled transgendered individuals—a member of the senior class and two recent graduates. One of the transgenders, born female, announces that “he” had been taking hormones for 16 months. “Right now I am a 14-year-old boy going through puberty and a 55-year-old woman going through menopause,” she complains. “I am probably the moodiest person in the world.” A second panelist declares herself an “androgyne in between both genders of society.” She adds, “Gender is just a bunch of stereotypes from society, but I am completely personal, and my gender is fluid.”

Only in liberal Massachusetts could a public school endorse such an event for teens, you might think. But you would be wrong. For the last decade or so, largely working beneath public or parental notice, a well-organized movement has sought to revolutionize the curricula and culture of the nation’s public schools. Its aim: to stamp out “hegemonic heterosexuality”—the traditional view that heterosexuality is the norm—in favor of a new ethos that does not just tolerate homosexuality but instead actively endorses experimenting with it, as well as with a polymorphous range of bisexuality, transgenderism, and transsexuality. The educational establishment has enthusiastically signed on. What this portends for the future of the public schools and the psychic health of the nation’s children is deeply worrisome.

This movement to “queer” the public schools, as activists put it, originated with a shift in the elite understanding of homosexuality. During the eighties, when gay activism first became a major cultural force, homosexual leaders launched a campaign that mirrored the civil rights movement. To claim their rights, homosexuals argued (without scientific evidence) that their orientation was a genetic inheritance, like race, and thus deserved the same kind of civil protections the nation had guaranteed to blacks. An inborn, unchangeable fact, after all, could not be subject to moral disapproval. There ensued a successful effort to normalize homosexuality throughout the culture, including a strong push for homosexual marriage, gays in the military, and other signs of civic equality.

But even as the homosexual-rights campaign won elite endorsement and lavish funding, even as supportive organizations proliferated, the gay movement began to split internally. By the early nineties, many gay activists viewed goals such as gay marriage or domestic partner unions as lamely “assimilationist”—an endorsement of standards of behavior that “queers,” as they called themselves, should reject as oppressively “straight.” And they militantly began defending the “queer lifestyle” not as an ineluctable fate but as the result of a fully conscious choice.

Underlying this militant stance was a radical new academic ideology called “queer theory.” A mixture of the neo-Freudianism of counterculture gurus Norman O. Brown and Herbert Marcuse and French deconstruction, queer theory takes to its extreme limit the idea that all sexual difference and behavior is a product of social conditioning, not nature. It is, in their jargon, “socially constructed.” For the queer theorist, all unambiguous and permanent notions of a natural sexual or gender identity are coercive impositions on our individual autonomy—our freedom to reinvent our sexual selves whenever we like. Sexuality is androgynous, fluid, polymorphous—and therefore a laudably subversive and even revolutionary force.

Rutgers English professor Michael Warner, a leading queer theorist, observes that categories like “heterosexual” and “homosexual” are part of “the regime of the normal” that queer theory wants to explode. “What identity,” he writes, “encompasses queer girls who f*&k queer boys with strap-ons, or FTMs (female-to-male transsexuals) who think of themselves as queer, FTMs who think of themselves as straights, or FTMs for whom life is a project of transition and screw the categories anyway?” To overturn the old dichotomies of hetero/homo and even male/female, Warner encourages continuous sexual experimentation.

A relatively recent arrival on college campuses, queer theory has swiftly dominated the myriad university gender-studies programs and spread its influence to other disciplines, too, “queering” everything under the sun. Type “queering” into’s search engine, and up comes Queering the Middle Ages, Queering the Color Line, Queering India, and many other books, many from prestigious academic presses.

It would be tempting to dismiss queer theory as just another intellectual fad, with little influence beyond the campus, if not for gay activists’ aggressive effort to introduce the theory’s radical view of sexuality into the public schools. Leading the effort is the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Educational Network (GLSEN, pronounced “glisten”), an advocacy group founded a decade ago to promote homosexual issues in the public schools. It now boasts 85 chapters, four regional offices, and some 1,700 student clubs, called “gay/straight alliances,” that it has helped form in schools across the country.

GLSEN often presents itself as a civil rights organization, saying that it is only after “tolerance” and “understanding” for a victim group. Sometimes, therefore, it still speaks the old gay-rights language of unchangeable homosexual “identity” and “orientation.” But it is, in fact, a radical organization that has clearly embraced the queer-theory worldview. It seeks to transform the culture and instruction of every public school, so that children will learn to equate “heterosexism”—the favoring of heterosexuality as normal—with other evils like racism and sexism and will grow up pondering their sexual orientation and the fluidity of their sexual identity.

That GLSEN embraces queer theory is clear from the addition of transgendered students to the gays and lesbians the group claims to represent. By definition, the transgendered are those who choose to change their gender identity by demeanor, dress, hormones, or surgery. Nothing could be more profoundly opposed to the notion of a natural sexual identity. Consider as evidence of queer theory’s influence, too, the GLSEN teachers’ manual that says that middle-schoolers “should have the freedom to explore [their] sexual orientation and find [their] own unique expression of lesbian, bisexual, gay, straight, or any combination of these.” What is this but Michael Warner’s appeal to pansexual experimentation?

One of the major goals of GLSEN and similar groups is to reform public school curricula and teaching so that Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender—or LGBT—themes are always central and always presented in the approved light. GLSEN holds regular conferences for educators and activists with workshops bearing titles such as “Girls Will Be Boys and Boys Will Be Girls: Creating a Safe, Supportive School Environment for Trans, Intersex, Gender Variant and Gender Questioning Youth” and “Developing and Implementing a Transgender Inclusive Curriculum.” Every course in every public school should focus on LGBT issues, GLSEN believes. A workshop at GLSEN’s annual conference in Chicago in 2000 complained that “most LGBT curricula are in English, history and health” and sought ways of introducing its agenda into math and science classes, as well. (As an example of how to queer geometry, GLSEN recommends using gay symbols such as the pink triangle to study shapes.)

Nor is it ever too early to begin stamping out heterosexism. A 2002 GLSEN conference in Boston held a seminar on “Gender in the Early Childhood Classroom” that examined ways of setting “the tone for nontraditional gender role play” for preschoolers. To help get the LGBT message across to younger children, teachers can turn to an array of educational products, many of them available from GLSEN. Early readers include One Dad, Two Dads, Brown Dad, Blue Dads; King and King; and Asha’s Mums.

As for teaching aids, a 1999 book, Queering Elementary Education, with a foreword by GLSEN executive director Kevin Jennings, offers essays on “Locating a Place for Gay and Lesbian Themes in Elementary Reading, Writing and Talking” and “How to Make ‘Boys’ and ‘Girls’ in the Classroom”—the scare quotes showing the queer theorist’s ever present belief that categorizing gender is a political act.

For comprehensiveness, nothing beats a GLSEN-recommended resource manual distributed to all K–12 public schools in Saint Paul and Minneapolis. The manual presents an educational universe that filters everything through an LGBT lens. Lesson ideas include “role playing” exercises to “counter harassment,” where students pretend, say, to be bisexual and hear hurtful words cast at them; testing students to see where their attitudes lie toward sexual “difference” (mere tolerance is unacceptable; much better is “admiration” and, best of all, “nurturance”); getting students to take a “Sexual Orientation Quiz”; and having heterosexual students learn 37 ways that heterosexuals are privileged in society. In turn, principals should make an “ongoing PA announcement”—once a week, the manual says—telling students about confidential support programs for LGBT students.

Teachers, the manual suggests, should demand that public school students memorize the approved meanings of important LGBT words and terms, from “bigenderist” to “exotophobia.” Sometimes, these approved meanings require Orwellian redefinitions: “Family: Two or more persons who share resources, share responsibility for decisions, share values and goals, and have commitments to one another over a period of time . . . regardless of blood, or adoption, or marriage.”

Two videos come particularly highly rated by gay activists and educators as tools for making primary school queer-friendly. Both films strive to present homosexuality in a favorable light, without saying what it actually is. It’s Elementary, intended for parents, educators, and policymakers, shows how classroom teachers can lead kindergartners through carefully circumscribed discussions of the evils of prejudice, portrayed as visited to an unusual degree on gays and lesbians. In That’s a Family, designed for classroom use, children speak directly into the camera, explaining to other kids how having gay and lesbian parents is no different from, for example, having parents of different national backgrounds.

GLSEN even provides lesson plans for the promotion of cross-dressing in elementary school classes. A school resource book containing such lesson plans, Cootie Shots: Theatrical Inoculations Against Bigotry for Kids, Parents, and Teachers, has already been used in second-grade classrooms in California. A children’s play in the book features a little boy singing of the exhilaration of striding about “In Mommy’s High Heels,” in angry defiance of the criticism of his intolerant peers:

They are the swine, I am the pearl. . . .
They’ll be beheaded when I’m queen!
When I rule the world! When I rule the world!
When I rule the world in my mommy’s high heels!

Some of the LGBT-friendly curricular material aimed at older children is quite sexually explicit. The GLSEN-recommended reading list for grades 7–12 is dominated by such material, depicting the queer sexuality spectrum. In Your Face: Stories from the Lives of Queer Youth features a 17-year-old who writes, “I identify as bisexual and have since I was about six or seven. . . . I sort of experimented when I was young.” Another GLSEN recommendation, Revolutionary Voices: A Multicultural Queer Youth Anthology, has a 16-year-old contributor who explains, “My sexuality is as fluid, indefinable and ever-changing as the north flowing river.”

Some of the most explicit homosexual material has shown up in classrooms. An Ohio teacher encouraged her freshman students to read Entries From a Hot Pink Notebook, a teen coming-out story that includes a graphic depiction of sex between two 14-year-old boys. In Newton, Massachusetts, a public school teacher assigned his 15-year-old students The Perks of Being a Wallflower, a farrago of sexual confusion, featuring an episode of bestiality as one of its highlights. Such books represent a growth industry for publishers, including mainstream firms.

As part of its effort to make the public schools into an arena of homosexual and transgender advocacy, GLSEN works assiduously to build a wide network of student organizers. It looks for recruits as young as 14, who in turn are to bring on board other students to form gay/straight alliances or other homosexual-themed student clubs at their schools. Glancing over the biographies of 2002’s student organizers reveals a uniform faith among them that experimenting with a range of homosexual behaviors serves the cause of civil rights.

The behavior in question involves some practices that the Marquis de Sade would welcome. A GLSEN-sponsored, taxpayer-funded “teach out” for activists, educators, and students to brainstorm ways of creating schools and communities that “are truly inclusive and safe,” held at Tufts University a while back, is a case in point. The daylong conference, with Massachusetts Department of Education and other state employees as workshop leaders and drawing many high school students and teachers (who received professional development credits for attending), featured a “youth only, ages 14–21” session that offered a lesson in “fisting”—the potentially dangerous act, called by some the first new sexual invention in 1,000 years, of inserting one’s fist into a partner’s anus or vagina.

Thanks to two members of the local Parents’ Rights Coalition, who secretly taped the session, we know that the fisting lesson did not arouse universal enthusiasm among the teens present. A boy asks why anyone would want to do such a thing. Other teens reportedly winced. But the self-identified gay and lesbian state employees turned aside doubts. One—a woman—explained that, though fisting “often gets a really bad rap,” it usually isn’t about the pain—“not that we’re putting that down.” Rather, she assured, it is “an experience of letting somebody into your body that you want to be close and intimate with.”

And so the workshop proceeded, marketing the polymorphously perverse to the sexually naive and emotionally immature. The etiquette of swallowing versus spitting after oral sex came up, as did the question of whether a tongue ring makes oral sex more pleasurable. Other topics included: how to use dildos, the mechanics of lesbian sexual gratification, and whether celery makes semen taste sweeter. The workshop leaders were sophisticated, yet breezy and colloquial, using street language and referring quite openly to their own sexual experiences—a Department of Public Health worker making his homosexual promiscuity obvious. The workshop initiated adolescents into a forbidden world that their parents likely knew nothing about.

In the winter of 2001, Tufts hosted another GLSEN-sponsored conference, entitled “Creating Safety—Teaching Respect.” This time, most of the 650 people present were teenagers, rounded up by gay activists or coming on their own to receive instruction in queer sexuality. Planned Parenthood representatives handed out special kits, containing latex gloves and lubricants, for “safe” fisting.

GLSEN and other activist homosexual groups have effectively used “safe school” campaigns to further their agenda. The federal Safe and Drug-Free Schools Program—Title IV of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act—provides millions of dollars to state education departments to combat drugs and violence in the public schools. Using some of these funds, gay activists have helped design and promote public school “tolerance” programs. One of the mildest of such programs, “Healing the Hate,” released in 1997 under Department of Justice sposorship, implicitly likens disapproval of homosexual behavior with the prejudices that in the past have led to lynchings, church burnings, and the Holocaust. Gay groups contend—dubiously—that such programs are necessary because homosexual students must endure bullying and hatred every day in schools across the country.

GLSEN is quite explicit about using the safety issue to silence opponents. As GLSEN chief Kevin Jennings puts it, “We knew that, confronted with the real-life stories of youth who had suffered from homophobia, our opponents would automatically be on the defensive. . . . This allowed us to set the terms of the debate.”

At the urging of gay/straight alliances, schools across the U.S. have also created “safe” rooms for homosexual or sexually confused students, as if they might not be safe from “hate” and “intolerance” elsewhere in the school. In these rooms, identified by inverted pink triangles, students can discuss same-sex attraction or anxiety about sexual orientation with teachers or counselors, who promise a nonjudgmental and sympathetic hearing. Students who drop by for private discussion about their sexual confusion will often be referred—without parental knowledge—to local chapters of gay and lesbian organizations. If queer theorists are correct that homosexuality is a free choice, then parents might be forgiven for thinking such advocacy a kind of recruitment.

Without doubt, most parents would look at the subversive agenda on offer at GLSEN conferences and in LGBT-friendly curricula and find it bizarre and offensive. What sense, they might ask, does it make to “queer” math or science or other classes—whatever that might mean—when so many public schools fail even to produce minimally literate and numerate graduates?

Especially when all the evidence suggests that the incidence of self-labeled homosexuality and bisexuality in the population is in fact minuscule—just 1.4 percent of female subjects and 2.8 percent of male subjects, according to one of the largest and most scientific surveys by the National Opinion Research Center. Even Kinsey, with a very distorted sample population of volunteers, prison inmates (including sex offenders), and deliberately solicited homosexual respondents, only came up with a 4 percent figure for exclusive homosexual behavior, still far below the 10 percent frequently cited by homosexual activists. Should we revolutionize the schools for such a tiny minority?

Even more to the point, how many parents, even those not just tolerant of homosexuality but actively sympathetic toward homosexual rights, would really want their teenage children to be seeking out a “unique expression” of sexuality (let alone with their school’s help) or learning how to “fist”? How many would want their kindergartners—just figuring out their identities and desperately needing clear-cut categories like “boy” and “girl” to make sense of them—to engage in “non-traditional role play,” so that they grow up with warm feelings about transgendered people? Or their elementary school boys and girls exposed to sexual themes that they aren’t old enough to understand and that are likely to fill them with anxiety? Parents might well brush off an old-fashioned word and describe it all as, well . . . perverse.

As for bullying, the real problem is not anti-gay prejudice but the overall breakdown of school discipline. No child should have to put up with verbal or physical intimidation at school. Making schools safer, however, does not require importing a broader LGBT agenda that offends the values of many students and parents.

Nevertheless, though many parents aren’t aware of it yet, the agenda has moved far beyond the wishful thinking of activists. The keynote speaker at GLSEN’s 2000 conference was Robert Chase, president of the 2.7 million-member National Education Association, the nation’s biggest, most powerful teachers’ union. The program booklet for the event featured greetings not only from Chase but from then-president Clinton, Chicago mayor Richard Daley, and the head of the American Federation of Teachers, the second-biggest U.S. teachers’ union. The celebratory notes expressed the kind of praise once reserved for groups like the Boy Scouts. A long list of well-known organizations has backed LGBT programs in the classroom, including the American Psychiatric Association, the American Library Association, and the National Association of Social Workers.

No organization has been more steadfast in its support of GLSEN than the NEA. During the NEA’s annual convention in July 2001, many observers expected the teachers’ union to pass an official resolution incorporating GLSEN’s sweeping educational goals into K–12 curricula nationwide. As it turns out, the NEA, clearly trying to minimize public awareness of an unprecedented infringement on parental prerogatives, tabled the resolution and announced a task force to study how best to approach LGBT issues in the schools. But in February 2002, the NEA board of directors approved the task force’s report—a pure emanation of the GLSEN worldview, as is clear both from its numerous citations of GLSEN documents in the footnotes and from its recommendations.

Following the task force’s lead, the NEA will now struggle to expunge “heterosexism” from the consciousness of children in the classroom. The union has encouraged schools to integrate LGBT themes into curricula, instructional material, and programs; to emphasize the legitimacy of different “family structures,” including domestic partner arrangements; and to offer counseling services for students struggling with their “sexual/gender orientation.” Small wonder that GLSEN greeted the NEA task force’s report, and its endorsement by the union, with hosannas. “These powerful new recommendations signal that help is on the way for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students and staff who experience day-to-day abuse in America’s schools,” enthused GLSEN head Jennings.

The queering of the public schools has perhaps advanced furthest in California, where a new state law requires public schools to teach all K–12 students (and K means five-year-olds) “to appreciate various sexual orientations.” What the new law might mean in practice, warned a state assemblyman, was on display at Santa Rosa High School, where invited homosexual activists “talked about using cellophane during group sex and said that ‘clear is best because you can see what you want to lick,’ ” or at Hale Middle School in Los Angeles, where during an AIDS education course, “12-year-olds were subjected to graphic descriptions of anal sex and tips on how to dispose of used condoms so parents don’t find out.” As the assemblyman noted, sex ed courses throughout California public schools, influenced heavily by national sex education advocates SEICUS and Planned Parenthood, have already enthusiastically endorsed the GLSEN worldview.

But California is only the cutting edge: efforts to queer the schools are under way in many other locales, from Massachusetts to Oregon. The co-chair of the Massachusetts Governor’s Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth, for example, informs the Boston Globe that teachers across that state are increasingly integrating LGBT themes into lessons—discussing the sexual orientation of authors as an interpretive tool in literature classes, she says, or comparing gay and bisexual with straight student mental health data in order to study percentages. After a ferocious battle, the Broward School Board in Florida recently voted to rely on GLSEN to train teachers in LGBT “sensitivity.” In Gresham, Oregon, in early 2002, school officials at Centennial High School brought in gay and lesbian speakers in English, drama, and health classes during the school’s annual “diversity” week, neither telling students about it beforehand nor letting them opt out of the classes if they wanted. Parental anger forced school officials to issue a public apology.

GLSEN constantly emphasizes the need for tolerance for homosexuality, bisexuality, and transgenderism, but if someone bucks the LGBT party line in a school that follows it, watch out. Consider the experience of Elliott Chambers, formerly a student at Woodbury High School in a suburb of Saint Paul, Minnesota. Woodbury High had posted pink triangles on 48 of its 60-odd classrooms and offices (what made the other rooms “unsafe” isn’t clear). Belonging to a conservative family, Chambers decided one day to express his values and wore to school a sweatshirt with the words STRAIGHT PRIDE emblazoned across the front and an image of a man and woman holding hands on the back.

The school principal found this expression of support for heterosexuality unacceptable. He forbade Chambers from wearing the sweatshirt in school, explaining that another student had found it offensive. Chambers’s parents, increasingly concerned about what they considered Woodbury’s aggressive endorsement of the LGBT agenda, met with the principal, who charged them with being “homophobic”—a frequent accusation made not only against anyone who questions the morality of homosexual acts but also against anyone who doesn’t accept the entire gay activist program, as if such questioning could only grow out of psychological disturbance rather than reasoned judgment. The parents then filed a federal lawsuit, claiming that the school had squelched their son’s First Amendment rights.

When a preliminary judgment came down in Chambers’s favor, the principal announced over the school public address system that the court had actually agreed with school officials that the sentiment of “straight pride” seemed intolerant toward homosexuality, and if circumstances changed so as to create “a reasonable belief that a substantial disruption of, or material interference with, school activities might ensue” from the wearing of the shirt, the school could prohibit it again. Foreseeing further disturbance, Mrs. Chambers decided to home-school her son.

The Chamberses’ experience was far from unique. Objecting when a teacher joins the ranks of the transgendered is out of the question in some school districts, no matter how disturbing it may be to schoolchildren and parents alike. But for those adhering to the queer agenda, the problem is with the kids and parents, not their “evolving” educator. When Principal Donald Reed of the Marie Murphy Middle School in Wilmette, Illinois, announced to school officials a few weeks before the 2001 school year began that he had undergone “gender reassignment”—a sex-change operation—and would henceforth be Principal Deanna Reed, the school superintendent and other administrators, faithful to the GLSEN spirit, didn’t remove him/her, despite parental outrage. Instead, the school district hired a psychologist to advise teachers on how best to counsel children who seemed confused or disturbed by their principal’s strange transformation. Administrators encouraged parents, too, to bring their concerns to “professionals.”

Parents or other concerned citizens who complain about any aspect of the queering of public education can face withering attacks, not just from gay activists but from cultural elites in general. When the two members of the Parents’ Rights Coalition released their tape of the GLSEN-sponsored fisting workshop to the public, to take one typical example, the Boston Globe didn’t condemn the use of public funds and state employees to instruct schoolchildren in an arcane and dangerous “sexual” practice; instead, it denounced the whistleblowers as fomenters of “intolerance.”

School districts that refuse to go along with the homosexual agenda now must contend with the American Civil Liberties Union, too. The ACLU’s Lesbian and Gay Rights Project has launched a national effort, called “Every Student, Every School,” that plans to sue on First Amendment grounds any school that refuses gay/straight student clubs on its premises. Already, schools in Kentucky and Texas face legal action.

No compulsory public school system can be justified unless what it teaches is a worldview that the taxpayers who fund it can support. The “common schools” came into existence, after all, to acculturate immigrants to American values. For schools to try to indoctrinate children in a radical, minority worldview like that promoted by GLSEN and its allies—a vision that will form those children’s values and shape their sense of selfhood—is a kind of tyranny, one that, in addition, intentionally drives a wedge between parents and children and, as queer theorist Michael Warner boasts, “opposes society itself.” We must not let an appeal to our belief in tolerance and decency blind us to indecency—and to the individual and social damage that will result from it.
