Education official refuses to retract Obama terror claim

This is from The Houston Chronicle:

AUSTIN — State Board of Education member Cynthia Dunbar isn’t backing down from her claim that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is plotting with terrorists to attack the U.S.

The Texas Freedom Network, a watchdog group that monitors the board, released a public statement on Monday asking Dunbar to retract the statement.

“I don’t have anything in there that would be retractable,” said Dunbar, R-Richmond. “Those are my personal opinions and I don’t think the language is questionable.”

In a column posted on the Christian Worldview Network Web site, Dunbar wrote that a terrorist attack on America during the first six months of an Obama administration “will be a planned effort by those with whom Obama truly sympathizes to take down the America that is threat to tyranny.”

She also suggests Obama would seek to expand his power by declaring martial law throughout the country.

“No matter who you support for president, we should all be able to agree that Ms. Dunbar’s disgusting attack is a shocking example of the extremism that has infected the state board,” TFN President Kathy Miller said.

“It’s stunning that a board member who helps decide what Texas children learn in their public schools would say something so disgusting and reprehensible. She should be taking refresher courses in civics and good citizenship, not deciding what Texas kids learn.”

The State Board of Education will begin revising public school social studies curriculum standards after adopting rules for science next year. Those standards will determine the content in new public school textbooks.

“Right now, we’re still in America and we still have freedom of speech,” Dunbar said. “And unless that’s changed, I’m not aware of it.”

This lady has monster balls and I am so impressed with her courage to speak her mind.  This is why I love Texas and probably am so willing to ignore it’s flaws.  It’s the people. Without a doubt. I for one am absolutely thrilled she is deciding what my children will learn and not some liberal, supposedly politically correct diarrhea that paints all whites to be devils that care for nothing more than killing “minorities” and oppression. I’m so fucking tired of it all. Yes your ancestors might have had it brutal maybe hundreds of years ago. I’m sorry. It’s time to move on, “for the healing to begin”.

But that’s besides the point. I applaud you Cynthia Dunbar. You said what you were thinking and didn’t back down from your beliefs because they might be unpopular. We need more people willing to stand up for the freedom of speech.

Just wanted to add a quick note. My spellcheck wants to replace Obama with Baa. As in sheep. Just a coincidence? I think not.

Affirmative action sucks!

All affirmative action is doing is dumbing down our country. It tells people of color that they don’t have to work hard and earn their way. Worse it tells them that they aren’t smart enough to get jobs without being a person of color so why bother trying to get ahead with hard work and studying. I know that affirmative action was started to help minorities due to racism or whatever but enough is enough. It’s served it’s purpose and needs to stop. People who are more qualified for certain jobs can’t get them because they are white. What does this mean to the consumer? Simple. It means that you may not get the best customer service or the highest quality product because employers can’t necessarily hire the most qualified person for the job. That’s bullshit. People will say I’m a racist and all I can say is pffttt. If I were black or hispanic I would be pissed. I would have the mindset of how dare you think I’m not smart enough to get this job on my own. 

Affirmative action is one of the many things set up by the government to “help” our country and all it’s doing is widening the racial divide. These programs are doing far more harm than good. No group deserves special treatment purely because of the amount of pigment in their skin or their sex or sexual preference. Now I know people are going to say I don’t get it because I’m white. Well fuck you, I do. I’m a woman and I’m well aware of the glass ceiling. I had to get over it and work harder to get promotions and raises. Such is life. It sucks but all I can do is work harder and show that I deserve these things and I’m a better person for it. LIFE ISN’T FAIR. Get over it.

To my brothers and sisters of color. Don’t be mad at me. Be mad at the system that says you aren’t good enough or smart enough. Work hard and get jobs on merit, not a hand out. Show America that you are deserve to succeed because you are smart, not because of some stupid law that is doing nothing but bring down your races.

If this offends you, think about why it offends you. You should find it offensive because the government doesn’t think you’re good enough. Not because I think the system is bullshit.

There aren’t enough words

 

Here in this garden of stone we’re all reminded that freedom really isn’t free.  Before America was even a country there were those brave and courageous enough to stand up and say no to oppression. Everyday men and women put their lives on the line so we can spout off at the mouth. Military suicides are up at an alarming rate. The burden these men carry is enormous and war is hell. Be sure to thank those who serve us and our great country.

Remembering 9/11

As I was listening to the radio taking my kid to school I was pleased to hear the DJs and callers not only talking about the hurricane but also taking the time to remember the importance of today. This is the day America changed forever. Most people will focus on the negative changes but I am choosing not to do so. I will not remember today’s date as only a time of mourning but also as a day of pride. Why pride? Because on this day seven years ago we the American people put aside our petty differences and instead stood together and did everything we could do as individuals and as a nation to help out our fellow brothers and sisters of this great nation.  No one was immune that.  Rich, poor, black, white, and all the colors in between were affected.  We were all red, white, and blue Americans. The terrorists thought that they would destroy America but they were wrong. We do what we in America have always done in the face of tyranny. We stood together and said you will not knock us down, you will not destroy us. Don’t tread on me is a motto not forgotten. We stood as a nation with a backdrop of red, white and blue. I love America with all my heart and I’m proud to be a citizen.

Remember today in any way you see fit. I will try to honor those who died and sacrificed their lives to save others in the best way possible.  Be nice to each other. Be a proud American.
