If you can’t smack a naughty kid, he/she may end up smacking you. Why should they respect adults anyway – adults that don’t care that they grow up as brats that have no regard for authority. Listen to the audio above for some more perspective. The psychologists out there – how do you suggest handling this if the police can’t calm the kid down?

Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you punish him with the rod, he will not die.
Punish him with the rod and save his soul from death. – Proverbs 23:13-14

In Georgia, Salecia was accused of tearing items off the walls and throwing books and toys in an outburst Friday at Creekside Elementary in Milledgeville, a city of about 18,000, some 90 miles from Atlanta, police said. Authorities said she also threw a small shelf that struck the principal in the leg, and jumped on a paper shredder and tried to break a glass frame.

Police refused to say what set off the tantrum. The school called police, and when an officer tried to calm the child in the principal’s office, she resisted, authorities said. She then was handcuffed and taken away in a patrol car.

Baldwin County schools Superintendent Geneva Braziel called the student’s behavior “violent and disruptive.”

“The Milledgeville police department was ultimately called to assist due to safety concerns for the student, other classmates and the school staff,” Braziel said in a statement.

Interim Police Chief Dray Swicord said the department’s policy is to handcuff people when they are taken to the police station, regardless of their age, “for the safety of themselves as well as the officer.” He said the child was restrained with steel cuffs, the only kind the department uses.

He said the girl will not be charged with a crime because she is too young. – Source

Obama doesn’t want to support the US & NATO missile defence system, but he can’t say so. He wants to be re-elected. Lies & deceit normal in politics? …if we let politicians get away with it, yes.

Washington and NATO argue that the missile shield is meant to protect Western nations against missile attacks from potential future nuclear powers such as North Korea and Iran. The US-backed system has been bitterly opposed by Russia and has remained one of the main stumbling blocks in Moscow’s recent relations with Washington.

 
If you can tolerate the view of stand-up comedian Jacky Mason on this topic, here’s the audio…

US President Barack Obama told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev overnight that he had little flexibility to address Russia’s objections to a US missile defence shield before his November reelection bid.

Obama was picked up on an open mic privately explaining his position to Medvedev in an exchange heard by some reporters, during their meeting on the sidelines of the nuclear security summit in Seoul.

US President Barack Obama told Russian President Dmitry Medvedev overnight that he had little flexibility to address Russia’s objections to a US missile defence shield before his November reelection bid.

Obama was picked up on an open mic privately explaining his position to Medvedev in an exchange heard by some reporters, during their meeting on the sidelines of the nuclear security summit in Seoul.

What they said:

The US leader told Medvedev, in their last meeting before Vladimir Putin is inaugurated president in May, that on all issues, but particularly missile defence it was important for Russia to give him “space.”

Medvedev replied: “Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space,” according to a transcript of the exchange carried by ABC News.

“This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility,” Obama said, pledging to “transmit this information to Vladimir.”

The exchange appeared to indicate that Obama believes he has little leverage to conclude deeply divisive foreign policy election issues in a campaign year, and also that he is confident he will win reelection.

The White House insisted it was committed to implementing the missile defence shield despite Russian objections, but said the longstanding and difficult issues meant it would take time to conclude a deal.

“Since 2012 is an election year in both countries, with an election and leadership transition in Russia and an election in the United States, it is clearly not a year in which we are going to achieve a breakthrough,” said deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes.

“Therefore, President Obama and President Medvedev agreed that it was best to instruct our technical experts to do the work of better understanding our respective positions, providing space for continued discussions on missile defense cooperation going forward.”

The US-backed system has been bitterly opposed by Russia and has remained one of the main stumbling blocks in Moscow’s recent relations with Washington.

Washington and NATO argue that the missile shield is meant to protect Western nations against missile attacks from potential future nuclear powers such as North Korea and Iran.

Moscow fears the shield could make its own nuclear capabilities less effective and has sought to build a joint system in which it has an equal say.

NATO has dismissed the idea and sought to assure Russia that its nuclear deterrence would remain unaffected.

The alliance’s secretary general Anders Fogh Rasmussen said yesterday the bloc intended to announce the deployment of the first `”interim” phase of a missile defence shield for Europe at a summit in Chicago. – Source

That’s right, how dare someone suggest that a man and a woman get married & have kids? How absurd? How foreign? Who would ever dream that children are born from a couple like this? I wonder … is LGBT ‘rights’ (…obviously there are no rights for the non-LGBT crowd if this kind of thing can happen) funded by the population control crowd? Ok, not seriously, but this is how unreal some of the news seems these days.

Full mural, including ‘offensive part’ shown at bottom of post.

The 17-year-Old Pilgrim High School Junior who painted the mural that depicted a husband, wife, and son that was deemed inappropriate by officials said the whole controversy is “ridiculous.”

Liz Bierendy told WPRO’s John DePetro that officials told her “that it may be offensive to some people because it is not how society views a family anymore because some people may not grow up with a mother and the whole marriage type thing may be a religious symbol.” Bierendy noted the school originally approved the sketch of the mural before she painted it.

Bierendy said she was upset when she was told that the mural may be offensive. “I felt bad because I didn’t want to offend anyone. I was scared that maybe it would go out to our homosexual community and I didn’t want them to get in an uprise because I was not trying to preach that’s the right thing to do at all,” Said Bierendy.

The section of the mural featuring the family was ordered painted over by school officials. Bierendy said she was notified prior but she was still “pretty upset.” The Superintendent of Warwick Schools Peter Horoschak has since stepped in and asked that the student be allowed to finish the mural however she sees fit.

Bierendy says she is going to take the weekend to “think about this,” and on Monday she will decide how to finish the mural. “If I was going to change it it would just be him and he would be an artist and he would be painting that part of his life,” she said.

Bierendy herself comes from a single parent family and says she did not mean anything by depicting a family unit as a man, woman, and child. “A family is a family,” she said.

In a statement released by Superintendent Peter Horoschak he said “some of the members of the Pilgrim High School community suggested that the depiction of a young man’s development from boyhood through adulthood as displayed may not represent the life experiences of many of the students at Pilgrim High School.” – Source

Bubba Watson, one of the most untraditional golfers on the PGA Tour, was the surprise winner of the 2012 Masters Tournament. But golf isn’t Watson’s top priority. Last month Watson’s Tweeted before his final round: “Most important things in my life- 1. God 2. Wife 3. Family 4. Helping others 5. Golf”

Why It Matters: Christians have always been involved in professional sports, so why is the faith of superstars like Tim Tebow, Jeremy Lin, and Bubba Watson suddenly getting the public’s attention? Perhaps it’s because these athletes are open and unapologetic about their willingness to share the Gospel. They also keep their priorities in order, winsomely admitting that their life’s callings are secondary to serving the Creator who has called them. To a culture that is both obsessed and disillusioned with fame and fortune, the centered perspective of these superstars provides a refreshingly countercultural witness. (from article here)

Miraculous shot at Masters

PGA Tour logoThe shot from the woods launched by Bubba Watson is definitely one that will stand the test of time with numerous people still saying “Huh?” after the Masters a week ago.

With so many people still bearing that quizzical look, the next logical step was to turn to a player and instructor, a logical choice being two-time PGA of Canada Club Professional champion Danny King, who also teaches at the Performance Academy at Magna in Aurora.

King’s response? ‘Don’t ask me.’

“Everything was wrong from an instructional point of view” said King. “He’s got zero balance. Both toes are facing towards the target and his arms are above his head, so everything’s unorthodox.”

“Unorthodox” is the key word over “wrong,” stressed King.

“It was a closed club face, inside path and just hitting down on it so hard. He’s got a very unorthodox grip, too. It’s not something you teach,” King said. “It works for him like it would work for Moe Norman. No one swung it like Moe. No one’s going to swing it like Bubba Watson. It’s just through repetition that he’s developed that golf swing,” said King.

“He’s got more imagination — his mechanics are obviously good for him to win — but he’s got such an imagination that he creates all these shots,” added King.

“It’s not like he hasn’t done it before. It’s confidence. His whole gait is different. The way he walks, he looks different. He just walks confidently, kind of to his own beat, that’s for sure.”

In Bubba’s wake, he’s left the patrons scratching their heads, the sure sign of a shot that won’t soon be forgotten.

All the men out there, which one is the woman? To put you out of your distress, check here.

Obviously I find the ‘newly normative’ nature of this troubling – like many other people.

Los Angeles (CNN) — The Miss Universe organization announced Tuesday it is ending its ban on transgender contestants after coming under scrutiny recently when a Canadian competitor was told she would be disqualified because she was born male.

Miss Universe officials insist the change is in spite of, not because of, legal threats from women’s rights lawyer Gloria Allred made on behalf of contestant Jenna Talackova.

“We made the decision two days before we even heard that (Allred) was involved,” pageant owner Donald Trump told CNN Monday. “Had I known she was involved, maybe I wouldn’t have made that decision because she’s easy to beat.”

Allred launched a blistering attack on Trump at a news conference a week ago, saying his pageant had no right to question Talackova’s sexuality.

“She did not ask Mr. Trump to prove that he is a naturally born man or to see photos of his birth to view his anatomy to prove that he was male,” Allred said.

In a Twitter posting Monday, Trump called Allred a “third rate lawyer” who “actually hurts Jenna.”

“Is Gloria a man or a woman???? ….. few men would know the answer to that one,” Trump tweeted in a personal retort to Allred.

Allred did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for a response to Trump’s attack.

The Miss Universe Pageant announced last week that Talackova, 23, could compete provided “she meets the legal gender recognition requirements of Canada, and the standards established by other international competitions.”

Allred had criticized that announcement, saying the conditions were “ambigious.” Trump later said Talackova could compete without conditions, but stopped short of a permanent rule change.

The audio segment above goes on to discuss the “day of silencing” where GLAD (the Gay & Lesbian Alliance against Disagreement) is using kids to promote the LGBT cause. Plainly. An elementary school teacher (of colour) calls in to mention his grave concerns on the topic as well as to mention his rejection that “gay is the new black” – in that gay rights does not equate to homosexual rights because gays have a choice to make their (properly) private sexual preferences known. Black people have no choice to make their skin colour known!

Do you know what the so-called “Day of Silence[ing]” is?

On April 20th, in thousands of schools across America, your hard-earned tax dollars will help underwrite the homosexual indoctrination of your kids. Yes, April 20th will mark the annual Day of Silence, described on its website as “a student-led national event that brings attention to anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment in schools.” As for those who do not support a special school day devoted to gay indoctrination, they are the ones who can expect to be silenced.

Originally the brainchild of some college students in 1996, the Day of Silence has been aggressively promoted for the last 12 years by GLSEN, the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network. (Based on its activities, GLSEN would better be described as the Gay & Lesbian Sexual Education Network.) GLSEN calls on students to remain silent during non-instructional school times on the Day of Silence, thereby standing in solidarity with LGBT youth who are silenced through bullying and harassment.

But don’t some schools already have generic, anti-bullying programs in place along with special, daylong events to highlight the destructive effects of bullying, a subject that should concern all of us? Of course they do, but that’s not enough. GLSEN insists that a special focus must be put on LGBT kids, as if bullying a gay kid was worse than bullying a fat kid.

But there’s more that takes place on the Day of Silence: A pro-homosexuality message is often sent to the students, with teachers and administrators frequently promoting homosexuality, bisexuality, and transgenderism over the course of the day. That’s why thousands of schools (and not just students) officially participate in the event, with the explicit backing of GLSEN. What about other messages being introduced during the day to balance the discussion? Perish the thought.

Just ask PFOX (Parents and Friends of ExGays and Gays), which announced its intention to hand out literature on the Day of Silence. According to PFOX president Greg Quinlan, “PFOX is calling on students to distribute flyers promoting acceptance of ex-gays. Former homosexuals and their supporters are ridiculed and forced to live in silence. Our nation’s schools deny students with unwanted same-sex attractions any support or fact-based information that feelings can and do change.”

How was this announcement welcomed? According to one gay journalist, “the fact that they are attempting to sneak in their harmful message on the Day of Silence, a day which is supposed to show support for those who are forced into silence by outside pressures, shows just how deceptive their message truly is.”

How dare they introduce their message on the Day of Silence! As expressed in 2004 by gay activist Kevin Jennings, founder of GLSEN and most recently President Obama’s Safe School Czar, “Ex-gay messages have no place in our nation’s public schools. A line has been drawn. There is no ‘other side’ when you’re talking about lesbian, gay and bisexual students.” Ah yes, the voice of tolerance speaks once again.

What about the Day of Dialogue, sponsored by the evangelical Christian organization Focus on the Family, and scheduled this year for April 19th, the day before the Day of Silence? This event encourages “student-initiated conversations about the fact that God cares about our lives, our relationships and our sexuality. . . . [Jesus’] example calls us to stand up for those being harmed or bullied while offering the light of what God’s word says.”

Surely this event will be welcomed, right? Not a chance. As expressed by a professing Christian woman with a self-described “hair-trigger sensitivity for the protection of LGBT youth,” the Day of Dialogue has something “very rotten” at its core. She writes (on LGBTQNATION.com), “Allowing Focus on the Family to export their historical and counter-productive sacred discrimination of the LGBT community to Christian youth is a mistake.” To repeat the words of Kevin Jennings, “There is no ‘other side’ when you’re talking about lesbian, gay and bisexual students.”

Last week an elementary school teacher from Florida called into my radio program, identifying himself as a black male but not wanting to give any specifics about the grade he taught at school. He was concerned that his job could be in jeopardy if he dared speak out against the Day of Silence. (Other elementary school teachers have told me privately that they dare not speak out against the overt homosexual activism they see on a regular basis in their schools – remember, we’re talking about elementary schools – for fear of losing their jobs.)

Although the Day of Silence had not yet been introduced to this gentleman’s school in Florida, the faculty members were discussing strategies for its future implementation, with explicit instructions to present this as a civil rights issue. (Needless to say, this black American also did not approve of equating gay activism with the civil rights movement.) And what should the teacher do if a student raised a religious or moral objection to homosexuality? The conversation, he was told, should immediately be turned back to gay civil rights, and no religious or moral objections should be entertained.

Yes, the Day of Silence has become the Day of Silencing – unless parents and educators and students determine to let their voices be heard. Now would be a good time to start.
