For several years more I maintained public relations with the Almighty. But privately, I ceased to associate with him.

Well now! Don’t this beat all. How DARE the left leaning educational system re-write the US constitution and put it in a text book to further “educate” people into the world the way they think it should be. How DARE!, how DARE!!, how DARE!!! Why there are not enough how DAREs to express my feelings. And also, how DARE the right for catching this and making it public. But like I always say, they don’t call it “right” for nothing!
#1 – It’s the same mentality behind brainwashing our kids that the government is like a family.
If I had kids of school age, I wouldn’t let them set foot anywhere near a public school.
There’s no agenda..this is all coincidental.
“If I had kids of school age, I wouldn’t let them set foot anywhere near a public school.”
I shore nuf wish I had sent my kids to that school attended by them chillins I heard on the trolley up Lookout Mountain a few years back. They were talkin’ about how they knew the guide in Ruby Falls was a liar because she said the formation was millions of years old when in fact they had learnt in their school that the Earth was just 10,000 years old. That place would be waaaaay better than any of them publik schools.
#4 – Leave it to gdad to come along and make a snide comment about homeschooled kids.
4 – where DID those kids attend, gdad?
omg some one found something wrong in a school textbook
yeah NW…not like the 2nd amendment isn’t being discussed much lately.
Just in case you missed it:
bare-knuckles politics is still alive and well!
#7 – “omg some one found something wrong in a school textbook”
It’s one thing to spell something wrong in a textbook, NW, or mistakenly get a fact wrong (like saying the capitol of Iowa is Dubuque) . But this is clearly an effort to influence thought by misrepresenting what the 2nd Ammendment actually says.
I’d be willing to bet that the person who authorized what is written in the book is a gun-grabber.
In all your hoopla to castigate the author of the text book, did you bother to read the text itself?
It clearly states that what was pointed out was a Summary of the amendments, not a verbatim reproduction of the document. I guess you’ve never heard of crib notes. That book is written for a student to read in preparation of advanced placement testings.
Wanna find another cross to bear?
#11 – “Wanna find another cross to bear?”
Nah, Will. I’ll stick by my assertion that this is yet another attempt to indoctrinate young minds to the mis-guided Liberal way of thinking.
Had the book been written by a Conservative, it never would have said what it does about the 2nd Ammendment. It would have been factual and contained exactly what the Ammendment says…not what you Libs want others to think it says.
Apparently you didn’t read the top page.
It never claimed to be a verbatim document…I frankly think your side has grossly over reacted. And even more to the point…it doesn’t diminish the 2nd Amendment whatsoever. As a matter of fact, I seriously doubt that 9/10ths of the population could quote the amendment verbatim in the first place.
It’s actually shows the unbridled paranoia that the right seems to be suffering from these days.
That IS what the Amendment says. The NRA and clause deniers do not make it invisible nor inapplicable. Not then and not now.
The book’s summary was longer than the actual amendment itself, and was inaccurate to boot.
#6 I don’t remember the name of the Christian school in Tennessee, 89Hoo. They had it on their shirts, but it’s been at least 10 years ago.
#5 Christian school, Michael, It was on their shirts. Somewhere in Tennessee. And I can’t think of any way to be but snide about a school that teaches kids the Earth is 10,000 years old.
BTW, Michael, show me where I said anything about homeschooling.
#16 – ” I don’t remember the name of the Christian school in Tennessee, 89Hoo.”
If you say so, gdad…
#14 – Uh, no, Sandi, that is not what it says. If it did, you and your fellow gun-grabbers would have succeeded in your goal to take guns away a long time ago.
#18 – Seeing as how your response was to my comment about not letting my kids anywhere near a public school, gdad, it came across as a slam against homeschooled kids.
Yes, that IS what it says. You and other gun advocates have counted on the Supreme Court majority interpretation that is not what it says, but that is clearly and in any language, what it says. Ignoring the clause, does not make it go away. And funny thing about “interpretations” is that they can change. The words are there, read them.
#20 – “The words are there, read them.”
You’re right, they are there, the Supreme Court has read them, and you don’t like what they decided.
But hey, they disagree with you, so what the heck do they know anyway?
#19 “Seeing as how your response was to my comment about not letting my kids anywhere near a public school, gdad, it came across as a slam against homeschooled kids”
Jump to conclusions much, Michael? Gdad could just as easily have been referring to privately funded religious schools, so there goes your argument down the drain.
#19 “If you say so, gdad…”
Why yes he most certainly does, Michael. I know it’s hard to believe, but not everyone has a mind like a steel trap that can remember every last little detail about everything that’s happened in their lives given the passage of time.
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed
What don’t you understand about the RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE.
I am that people. A well regulated militia does not meant regulated by state or fed govt.
It is a militia regulated by the people, to stop any govt overreach and a tyrannical govt.
I also believe that that day is not far from becoming the truth.
The fed. govt and states that have hard gun laws, now this day is coming and doing everything it can to stop it by watering down the amendment.
Sandi..the following two statements are equal?
“The people have the right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.”
“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
#22 – “Jump to conclusions much, Michael?”
When someone talks about not putting their children in public schools, Steven, the rational conclusion is they are talking about homeschooling as an option. While private schools, Christian schools, etc are also an option, homeschooling is frequently the first thing that comes to mind.
I’m sorry if you missed that. Then again, I did say “rational”, so I guess that explains it.
#25 – “Sandi..the following two statements are equal?”
They are to a liberal that hates guns, BUD.
As far as they are concerned, it really says, “Guns are icky and no one should be allowed to have one because I say so.”
“You’re right, they are there“, so the textbook is not wrong. It was not discussing what the interpretations of the Amendments were/are/have been/will be. It was saying what the Amendment says in plain English. For over 200 years the Supreme Court did not see fit to interpret them any other way and after all the crap on here over Roe v Wade and “Obamacare” SC interpretations, it is just plain laughable to squeal I “don’t like what they decided”.
#19 “If you say so, gdad…”
Gosh golly gee whiz, Michael, I apologize for not memorizing the name of some obscure school in Tennessee 10 years ago just so I could convince you that I’m not making this up.
The incident itself was what was memorable. My wife and my kids and I all looked at each other with mouths open. We had never heard a group of kids in public calling an adult a liar simply because she had told them how old a geologic form was. Or claiming the the Earth is just 10,000 years old.
“Seeing as how your response was to my comment about not letting my kids anywhere near a public school, gdad, it came across as a slam against homeschooled kids.”
If you say so, Michael. I didn’t realize that public school and homeschool were the only types of education you knew about.
