School Officials in Mass. Town Won't Let Students Recite Pledge of Allegiance

When Sean Harrington entered his freshman year at Arlington High School, he noticed something peculiar: There were no American flags in the classrooms, and no one recited the Pledge of Allegiance. 
So Harrington enlisted the aid of his fellow students, and now, three years later, they have succeeded in getting flags installed in the classrooms. But the pledge still will not be recited.
The Arlington, Mass., school committee has rejected the 17-year-old's request to allow students to voluntarily recite the Pledge of Allegiance, because some educators are concerned that it would be hard to find teachers willing to recite it, according to a report in the Arlington Patch.
Harrington had presented school officials with a petition signed by 700 people, along with letters of support from lawmakers including Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Sen. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn. 
But the request to have the pledge recited failed when the committee's vote ended in a 3-3 tie.

I can think of NO reason this school, or for that matter the state, still receive Federal funds.  I would guess there are not enough people in the Federal government with balls.

SAY WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Republican lawmakers are expressing shock over a Labor Department ad campaign that offers government assistance to illegal immigrants who think they're getting shortchanged for their work -- and at least one of them is planning to write to Labor Secretary Hilda Solis for an explanation.
Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz says he wants to know why taxpayers are being asked to spend moneyto ensure that illegals get assistance for fair wages while millions of unemployed Americans struggle to find jobs.

Say  what!  Employers hire illegal aliens so they can pay low wages.  If a few illegals take their case to court, courtesy of the U.S. Government, low wages will be a thing of the past.  Then, the employers will not only face jail for hiring these beauties, but will have to pay full wages and benefits.

Either a clever ploy or idiocy run amuck.

US President Barack Obama's address from the Oval Office on Tuesday was supposed to be a moment of leadership during the worst environmental disaster in American history. But critics from across the political spectrum wondered afterwards whether he'd shown leadership at all. The geyser of oil in the Gulf of Mexico seems, technologically, to lie beyond anything either BP or the US government was prepared for, and Obama failed to mention any specific new ideas.
"The tragedy unfolding on our coast is the most painful and powerful reminder yet that the time to embrace a clean-energy future is now," he declared, without offering policy details. Of course, it wasn't a policy speech. But the fact that Obama failed to outline a clear path toward this clean-energy future seems to have disappointed a lot of people. "He didn't boldly push an agenda," said Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican senator from South Carolina, to Politico, the Washington-based news website. "I think a lot of people took that to mean lukewarm support for anything big."
One immediate result of White House talks with the American arm of BP, though, was a series of concessions on Wednesday. BP Plc agreed to set aside $20 billion (€16.1 billion) in escrow to cover damage claims by shrimpers, restauranteurs and other Gulf-Coast residents hurt by the spill. The energy giant also said it would suspend shareholder dividends until 2011, when it expects to have a clearer notion of the catastrophe's costs. Another $100 million (€80.8 million) will be set aside for compensation to BP workers hurt by the spill.

The next Jimmy?  Nah, he's worse that that idiotic peanut farmer ever thought to be.  After all, Carter had some talent; none of it however in governing.

Environmental laws work against law enforcement

Photo and (italics) text from FOX News online.

Federal environmental laws are handcuffing U.S. Border Patrol agents to a foot-and-horseback strategy as they try to battle Mexican drug cartels and illegal immigrants who are turning wide swaths of America's border with Mexico into a virtual no-man's land. 
Rep. Rob Bishop, R-Utah, ranking Republican on the House Parks and Public Lands Subcommittee, said the Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge in southern Arizona -- part of which was closed in 2006 because it was considered too dangerous for Americans to visit -- is just the tip of the iceberg. 
He said there's plenty of other parkland along the border that's either closed to the public or is considered too dangerous because of concern about drug gangs, human smugglers and illegal immigrants, and that the problem is getting worse. 
"You travel here in America at your own risk," Bishop told FoxNews.com. 
The reason the parkland along the border has become so hazardous, Bishop said, is because environmental regulations restrict Border Patrol from using vehicles to patrol in those areas -- except in special circumstances. In turn, he said, drug cartels are being funneled into those swaths as immigration agents get tougher patrolling private land. 

Some poo-poo brained dolt(s) is/are making parts of America unavailable to Americans and causing Border Patrol officers to put themselves at even more risk than usual.  These stupid laws are only enforced against the enforcers of the law.  We need better people running the government.  Some folks with common sense.

A retired U.S. Marine who runs a Massachusetts high school'sROTC program says he faces termination if he doesn't pay a $500 union fee by next week, a levy he refuses to pay because he already receives medical and dental benefits from the military.
Maj. Stephen Godin, senior naval science instructor at the Naval Junior ROTC Unit at NorthHigh School in Worcester, Mass., told FoxNews.com he has been teaching for the Educational Association for Worcester for 15 years -- including 14 at North High School -- without having to join the union or pay an "agency fee" toward the cost of collective bargaining.

Without unions the American worker would be in awful trouble.  With unions, the American is in terrible trouble.  To me, the words "teacher" and "union" don't go well together.

Federal officials have arrested an Army intelligence analyst who boasted of giving classified U.S. combat video and hundreds of thousands of classified State Department records to whistleblower site Wikileaks, Wired.com has learned.

SPC Bradley Manning, 22, of Potomac, Maryland, was stationed at Forward Operating Base Hammer, 40 miles east of Baghdad, where he was arrested nearly two weeks ago by the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division. A family member says he’s being held in custody in Kuwait, and has not been formally charged.

This cute little butt-polisher appears to be proud of being a traitor to his country and putting his fellow soldiers in mortal jeopardy.  Maybe someone still has the huge tire shredder that Mr. Sadam Hussein's sons so liked to play with.  It could be put to good use with this smelly object.

•A Turkish official, Itshit Plonkfizzle (or some such moniker), announced that it is impossible for muslims to commit genocide.

•Too long time white house journalist, Helen Thomas - yeah, that one, wants all the Jews in Israel to "go back to Poland."  Or Germany.  Or someplace.

Are these people real?  Is it at all possible that blank slates like this can have their words quoted all over the world?  They sound like people whose tender body parts have been caught in a blender.

And I'm sure they both have cell phones.
