The Board of Education of the Los Angeles Unified School District voted unanimously Tuesday to express "outrage" and "condemnation" of Arizona's new law on illegal immigration and another law that prohibits the teaching of "ethnic solidarity" in Arizona schools. The L.A. board instructed Superintendent of Schools Ramon Cortines to ensure that students are taught about Arizona laws "in the context of the American values of unity, diversity, and equal protection for all."
Glenn Beck has been working tirelessly within the past two years attempting to undo the damage done by the modern Progressives (aka, Fabian socialists). According to Beck, the ways in which the Progressives have succeeded in the United States are by destroying the Constitution, God, and the Founding Fathers. In an attempt to restore the Founding Fathers, Beck has implemented Founding Father’s Fridays. He devotes his Friday episodes to conducting lessons on the Founding Fathers, supported by expert historians, and in doing so, has both exalted the Founding Fathers and restored the truth that the Founding Fathers did indeed maintain powerful faith in God, which manifested in every action they took.
Flip on the TV, peruse the Internet, or page through the average magazine on the newsstand today, and it is difficult to ignore the obvious: America’s moral values seem to be slipping to new lows every year. Images that would have rated swift condemnation from our nation’s religious leaders (and likely a fine from the FCC) just a few short years ago are now standard fare on today’s television screens. Profanity that few sailors would have been caught uttering in mixed company in previous generations now falls freely from the lips of teens and young adults. And behaviors that once would have been unthinkable in civilized society are now embraced by whole communities as basic rights.
Amtrak and its lobbyists at the National Association of Railroad Passengers (NARP) recently invited us to commemorate the third annual National Train Day on May 8. Supposedly celebrating “America’s love for trains,” the day could not boast a more ironic host than the railroad nobody rides. Worse, Amtrak’s sponsorship was as shameless as Dracula’s funding a fashion show concentrating on décolletage: The government that owns Amtrak has sabotaged, subsidized, and sucked the life from American railroads since the industry’s inception.
