Trump-Supporting Teen's School Photo Published Without Original MAGA Slogan

A New Jersey teen wore his Trump shirt to picture day to make his political alignment clear for posterity. By the time the yearbook was published, it was evident that the photo had been tampered with, because in it, the shirt no longer bore the "Trump- Make America Great Again" motif that was on the teen's navy blue T-shirt when the picture was taken.

What in the world is going on here?

It's not clear whether the censor was undertaken at behest of the school, or of the company that took the school photos.

Did someone at the school, in a fit of rampaging anti-Americanism decide that political opinions had to be skewed? Perhaps believing the wearer had the 'wrong' political alignment. Well, whoever that was, let me tell you something, the 'Democracy' we are told rules our country is absolutely dependent on the participation of an informed electorate in order to work. Public school is supposed to be a place to learn, and people learn more in a discussion, so declaring a school a 'no political opinions zone' is nonproductive. It is even less productive in the long run when the young people are given politically correct views and talking points to parrot instead of being taught to understand the background and form their own opinions by logically evaluating all known aspects. This is just a symptom of concentrating power in government ad absurdum. Functionaries that are all-to-willing to blindly follow an ideology that will hopefully provide perks for themselves, without regard for the bigger picture and what it means for those impacted.

This was an abuse of power, an overreach and very good example of why the good people always have to be on the lookout at the local level politically.

Democracy in Action - San Diego public thrashes new Muslim Anti-Bullying school policy

The San Diego unified District school board enacted an extensive "anti-Islamophobia campaign" in the first week of April, ostensibly to provide a counterweight to the "vastly under-reported" bullying of Muslims in the district. I've seen plenty of videos of town hall meetings like this in the past years where some outlandish policy was decided upon by board members who seem to have a personal interest although the public would not agree to the policies if they where aware the decision was being made. You would often times see just one or two dissenting opinions for the craziest bureaucratic boondoggles at those meetings. This meeting was different, in that, there were many speakers from all walks of life and their resounding tenor was "Don't choose one group to be favored over any others, enforce rules equally and apply the Constitutional principle of not making any laws favoring any particular religion." This time, the people were awake, with prepared, impassioned speeches that were clearly opposed to the school policy and uncomfortable for the board. You see, when all of these meetings are not being participated in by those subject to the rules being made, there is no daylight shone on the subject matter and, consequently, those making the rules are then tempted to consider their own advantages more than the advantage for all who are impacted, and that is when democracy breaks down. Statutes then become enacted to enrich special interest groups more than the governed. The winners and losers are then picked, not based on their merits or contribution to the greater good, but upon their relationship with those affecting policy.

It was really great to see so many, awake, passionate and caring people speak their mind and being the change they want. Democracy wins!

"Published on Apr 26, 2017

Eleven citizens, led by a group called, Citizens for Quality Education, spoke at the San Diego Unified School Board against the progressive/Marxist plan to force acceptance of Islam on students under the guise of an anti-bullying program. The School Board is actually the bully here, trying to control the thoughts and speech of the students by intimidation.

The school district denied that they are enforcing Sharia, but they will be accommodating Islamic religious practices in the schools and teaching a (false) positive view of Islam. These religious obligations, such as praying five times a day and enforcing deference by non-Muslims to Islam are requirements of theocratic Islamic religious law, i.e. Sharia. However, Muslims are allowed to forego these religious obligations in a non-Muslim country. The San Diego School Board is acting like we already live in a theocratic Muslim country.

Kevin Beisser is the chief advocate of implementing Sharia in the schools. Saudi Arabia funds much of the advocacy of Islam in the US. You have to wonder, if he and other board members are getting any of that Saudi gold. A former board president (Marne Foster) was charged with corruption and removed from the board just last year.

The meeting took place on April 25, 2017. Please feel free to download and re-use this video.

8,000 Documents Detail CIA Crimes — But US Media Won’t Touch Them

Wikileaks Vault7 dump will result in the largest publication of classified material ever. The methods used by the CIA to spy on and execute covert, unlawful assasinations on their adversaries or just people that get in their way have been published in detail, but the news is still spinning around requests that Trump provide evidence for his tweet which accused Obama of having his communications tapped.

How the ACLU is gearing up to take on Trump, one city at a time

WASHINGTON — The American Civil Liberties Union wants to take over your town. On Saturday, the organization is launching a nationwide campaign to push local governments to become “Freedom Cities” by adopting a series of policies to make them safe havens for immigrants and refugees amid what the group has dubbed President Trump’s “mass deportation agenda.”

This comment nails it:

Mr Shakir, let me explain how the VAST MAJORITY of the country feels about your master plan by telling you a little story:

I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seed. What a beauty of a bird feeder it was, as I filled it lovingly with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food. But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue. Then came the chit. It was everywhere: on the patio tile, the chairs, the table ... everywhere! Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own pocket. And others birds were boisterous and loud. They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food. After a while, I couldn't even sit on my own back porch anymore. So I took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio. Soon, the back yard was like it used to be ..... quiet, serene.... and no one demanding their rights to a free meal. Now let's see.....Our government gives out free food, subsidized housing, free medical care and free education, and allows anyone born here to be an automatic citizen. Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor; Your child's second grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn't speak English. Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to 'press one ' to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people waving flags other than ”ours” are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties. I think it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder. I’ve about had it with this chit.
And look, if you don’t like what I’ve just written here then it’s probably time for you to pack your ditty bag and leave because we’ve elected a president who was elected legally on promising to do just what I just wrote about in this illustrative little story. I like having birds in my yard just like any other bird over but I determine how many and by hospitality, I run the show, the birds don’t and should a radical squirrel try to raid the seed he or she tastes my pellet gun.
There’s a message here Shakir, hope you got it because it’s coming, one way or the other it’s coming. Peacefully or violently, bet on it.

We needed lawsuits capped (tort reform) in order to lower doctors costs and end their defensive medicine.

We needed more competition and more flexibility on what plans are allowed and we need to repeal the No-Bid status of Big Pharma and make it easier to get drugs brought to market,

But even with all that it was still better than Obamacare which fixed none of those problems, and just added new ones which RINO keeps in place.

We don't need insurance plans for healthy check ups with the doctors. We need catastrophic care insurance for when things go wrong.
'Health Insurance' is neither. Our Health is a personal responsibility, and insurance companies only exist to perpetuate their business, which is to avoid paying out things that they can get away with not paying for.

You are correct, if we pay out of pocket for normal visits, the price will go down, this is how things work, get Govt involved and the prices sky rocket, take a look at Collage, federal funding grants and loans, now if you cant get any of these collage would be a pipe dream. Get Govt out of everything and things will be affordable again.

No it wasn't fine - not at all. But getting these scumbag government criminals involved made an already bad situation worse - much like our wonderful American 'public' schools which cost more than anywhere else in the civilized world and are the very bottom of the barrel in quality of education.

I'm old enough to remember when doctors made house calls. And if you purchased insurance when you were young and healthy, your premiums didn't rise if you got an expensive health condition provided you maintained coverage, but if you had one, it either wasn't covered or you paid more for it.

And it did work well then.

David Goldhill, CEO of the Game Show Network and author of "How American Health Care Killed My Father" wrote that seniors on Medicare actually pay a greater portion of their income on health care than before Medicare existed! That shows you how much government messes up the free market and raises prices, not including all the money they've paid in Medicare taxes. It suggests abolishing Medicare would save seniors money on health care, even though it's "free". Like PJ O'Rourk observed, if you think things are expensive now, just wait until the government makes it free.

Yes. Plus administrative costs per patient are higher with Medicare than with private insurance. With ACA you have govt administrative costs AND private insurance company administrative costs. There is no way to make it work unless we cut one out of it. And judging from the poor product we get from most government employees I think it's obvious which one.

Medicare is not free.It may be affordable but payments are deducted from your SS every month.Also it's only 80/20 and only pays a certain amount for meds so you have to find a supplemental to help pay for that. After the age of 65 where would a person find a plan they could afford. http://money.cnn.com/2017/0...

Sounds like perhaps we're of a similar age. I remember those days as well. What's happened since then is that the Feds decided to get involved. The more involved they got, the worse they made it for everyone else.

Then, there was also a LOT of pro-bono type medicine being dealt out to those who needed help. Government involvement stopped that, too. Gov is also the CAUSE of high drugs...it goes on and on.
