UPDATE: Pledging Allegiance Hoax Confirmed

with 9 comments

UPDATE: Pledge of Allegiance in Las Vegas School finally confirmed as a hoax. It’s just not true folks. Mosey along nothing to see here.

Note to self: This is the second time you’ve fallen for a story you wanted to believe. From now on, verify, verify, verify. Thank you to those I talked with to find out the facts.
T/Y to Mr. Jarrett of Millard Fillmore’s Bathtub for a reasonable benefit of doubt.

UPDATE: Clark County School District is denying reports.
UPDATE: After getting a comment from a reader about the veracity of this Internet-wide story, I researched deeper and found out this isn’t the first time that the Clark County School District has had an incident over the Pledge of Allegiance.

I’ve talked to California-based NewsBlaze editor Alan Gray who reported the story of the parents who are upset over their children pledging “allegiance” to Obama in certain classrooms. Gray was unable to confirm names of parents or the school, but said he had contacted the Clark County School District and they did not know where the incident occurred or if it did occur. I have more feelers out there. Stay tuned. This may turn out to be a hoax.

~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m completely coming unglued over this one. Red County is reporting:

Eight days after Obama’s coronation, an elementary school in Las Vegas is forcing students to pledge allegiance to Obama and our flag.

At least three of the five classrooms have an overhead projector and as the children stand to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, the teacher turns on the classroom overhead and a full body image of Obama, with six U.S. flags behind him, comes up about 4 feet away from the flag that hangs on the wall. The screen is apparently around five feet by six feet.

In the image, President Obama appears to be staring straight out with no facial expression, just a serious look. All of the kids in each class faced the President, instead of the flag that hangs in the corner.

These state teachers need to be placed on suspension and a message sent out that this type of indoctrination is wrong. Parents need to prepare and warn their children about this type of socialist tactics.

Obama needs to call the Secretary of Education and demand this type of communist behavior has to stop. Nip this in the bud right now.

Teacher Placed On Suspension For Indoctrinating Students.

Majority Of People Want To See Reagan’s Policies Back

leave a comment »

Rasmussen polls this week are reporting that a majority of American (56%) voters want to see Reagan economics back in power. That’s not 56% of Republicans but American voters, both Republicans and Democrats. When polled, 85% of Republicans feel that implementing Reagan policies would lead the United States back to successful times.

To everything turn, turn, turn. There is a season, turn turn turn.

Politics is cyclic. Seems there could be more conservatives than liberals.

Obama’s First 10 Days = Broken Promises 1 & 2

leave a comment »

Not appearing in any American drive-by media newspapers or liberal network news, but reported by bloggers, the India Daily and the Free Republic, that Obama’s first broken promise: Lobbyists will not find a job in the White House. Oops, Obama be bad… he’s appointed more than 17 lobbyists to his administration so far.

His second broken promise came promptly a few days later when he signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Applauded by power red and blacksuits of Obamites and O-bots, the cool and smooth Obama first law passed went completely against his promise and policy for transparency.

Obama’s campaign rhetoric stated publically over and over again that he would bring transparency to the White House by allowing the public to look at any bills 5 days before signing them. He didn’t do that with the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. He signed it with no public input whatsoever.

Will “liar, liar, pants on fire” be the Obama Administration’s motto for the next four years?

Compassionate Hamas Uses Families As Human Shields

leave a comment »

Those poor Palestinian terrorists. Being bombed by Israel is just not right. So Hamas just has to resort to desperate solutions, such as taking over the homes of families and using parents and children as human shields. It’s not their fault, Israel is attacking them.

Another Science Discovery Makes Fetus Stem Cells Unnecessary

leave a comment »

Free Republic is reporting that the University of Pennsylvania have found that stem cells from the esophagus tissue from mice can successfully be used to create new tissues in immune-deficient mice.

“The immediate implication is that we’ll have a better understanding of the role of these stem cells in normal biology, as well as in regenerative and cancer biology,” says senior author Anil Rustgi. “Down the road, we might use these stem cells in replacement therapy for diseases like gastroesophogeal reflux disease (GERD) and also to understand Barrett’s esophagus, a precursor to esophageal adenocarcinoma and how to reverse that before it becomes cancer.”

The researchers set out to identify and characterize potential stem cells — those with the ability to self renew — in the esophagus to understand normal biology and how injured cells may one day be repaired.

Since there is so much information from scientists and doctors that fetus stem cells don’t work and adult stem cells do, does this mean that Democrats, celebretards, and liberals will stop campaigning to keep abortion legal so that they can kill babies to harvest their stem cells?

No, the left-wing wants to keep murder legal.
