Sheri Sheppard from The View has had her aha moment when it comes to guns and providing protection for your family. Her alarm indicated that an intruder was in her home at 1:30 in the morning. It was then that the family realized that they had nothing in their home to protect themselves.
‘I’m trying to calm Jeffrey down and all I had was this wicker basket, I have nothing, a bat, nothing. We’re going to get a gun.’
Jeffrey is her young son who was rightly frightened by the incident. It is very scary for an adult, so imagine how much worse it is for a child, who is completely dependant on others to provide protection.
Of course her liberal co-hosts tried to talk her out of it. Whoopi Goldberg went as far as to tell her to buy a bat. While of course a bat could help you, but first and foremost, if they have a gun it isn’t exactly an effective tool to provide protection. But the most obvious downfall of a bat is how close you to get to the person in order for it to be used. Why would you want to get that close to someone who is in your home in the middle of the night? Especially if you have been woken out of a sound sleep.
Apparently it took seven minutes for the police to arrive at her home. Think of what could happen to you in seven minutes in your home with someone with criminal intent on their mind. That may seem like nothing, but a great deal can happen in that time. She is lucky that she has the ability to afford an alarm system, otherwise the time for the police to arrive would have been even longer.
There is nothing wrong with buying a gun for home protection. You buy yourself something small, easy to use and you take lessons on how to use it and store it properly.
Evil exists in our world. It is all around us. We can bury our heads in the sand or we can do what we can to learn how to protect ourselves and our families. Law abiding citizens have every right to defend themselves in their own home. You can’t wish away criminals.
Welcome to the land of reality, Ms. Sheppard.

Yes, really. While the Supreme Court and the rest of us are all focused on the human right of marriage equality, let’s not forget that the fight doesn’t end with same-sex marriage. We need to legalize polygamy, too. Legalized polygamy in the United States is the constitutional, feminist, and sex-positive choice. More importantly, it would actually help protect, empower, and strengthen women, children, and families.
I don’t think any further comment is necessary.
Gee is it really any wonder that parents are very concerned about the education our children are receiving and many have chosen to take things into their own hands?
This is from a school in Jacksonville, Florida. A “teacher” had the students write this sentance after a lecture about the constitution.
This comes Wisconsin: A crossward puzzle that says conservative beliefs limits personal freedoms. After all it is conservatives that want to ban certain sized sodas, ban salt, and trans fats.
From Texas, for 6th graderas:
Notice socialist/communist nations use symbolism on their flags representing various aspects of their economic system. Imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you have been put in charge of creating a flag. Use symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism on your flag. What kind of symbolism/colors would you use?
So apparently according to new military training manuals, Catholics are now potential terrorists. If this is truly the case, why in heavens name are we not having impeachment hearings on Vice President Joe Biden or Minority Leader Nanny Pelosi?
“as an ardent, practicing Catholic,” Nanny Pelosi
‘I get comfort from carrying my rosary, going to mass every Sunday. It’s my time alone,’ VP Biden
Ipswich Middle School in Massachusetts has decided in their infinite wisdom that honors ceremonies are just too harmful to the kids who didn’t make the cut. I mean feelings being important as they are these days, it all makes sense right? After all, why would we want children who didn’t do their homework on time, didn’t study for their tests, or not pay attention in class to feel badly right? That just isn’t “fair”. Fairness being the new buzz word of late and all, so I guess it has to filter down to our students.
The statement reads in part:
“The Honors Night, which can be a great sense of pride for the recipients’ families, can also be devastating to a child who has worked extremely hard in a difficult class but who, despite growth, has not been able to maintain a high grade point average,”
I fully understand that some children, no matter how hard they work, will not make the cut. This can happen for a variety of reasons, especially when you start introducing standardized multiple choice tests into the equation. I am a person who doesn’t do well on multiple choice tests. In college I explained this to my professors and most allowed me to answer questions that I didn’t quite comprehend in a written format. So I get it.
What I don’t get is that why are we asking those that did work hard and were able to maintain their GPA’s to suffer? What we are actually telling these children is that a strangers feelings are more important than your hard work. This isn’t how the real world works. In the real world you are judged based on your own performance. Does this principal believe that when these children get out into a working environment that they won’t be viewed based on their own performance? Look, it is very possible in a work environment that someone tries and works hard, but is just unable to perform the necessary tasks that the job requires, and will eventually lose that job. What this man is doing is setting up unrealistic expectations of what faces these children as they grow into mature adults. The world isn’t fair. Bad things happen to good people. Good things happen to bad people. That is life. What you do is keep your own sense of integrity and morality, and work as hard as you can. Some of the best things that come in life are the things that happen to you after you fail at something. Those failures and how you handle them become the very essence of the person that you are. This principal is cheating these kids of that experience at a young age. That of course makes it harder for them to learn that lesson as they grow older.
Parents in this school must stand up to this man and demand that their children be taught the hard lessons in life. You will not always get your way, you will not always succeed the first time at everything you try. The rewards that come in life normally come to those who work hardest for them. It is about time that we, as a society, stop giving these children the idea that everyone gets a pony simply because they exist.
Somehow I don’t think they would be asking this question if a Republican were in office. The other question one must ask is which Americans do the 78% think it is OK to kill?
Short, sweet, and spot on.
The workforce in this country is only 155 million, approximately.
She is such an embarrassment.

I admit it, I am a huge fan of the Oscars. I rarely miss watching the ceremony. I love movies and I really like the fact that most years I have seen most of the movies that are nominated for the big awards. Now, hollywood isn’t exactly a fan of mine. Or, I should say my political beliefs. Many within the industry are outright rude to people who hold my political beliefs. They call me all kinds of not so nice names and twitter has made it even more pronounced.
So last night I was tweeting while watching the ceremony. Many of the conservatives around the twitterverse talked about how we shouldn’t watch because of the very liberal slant of the industry and the people within the industry. I say exactly the opposite. One of the reasons that democrats win is that use pop culture to influence the masses.
Well, Flotus proved me correct last night.
It’s through cinema, Obama said, that “our children learn to open their imagination and dream just a little bigger and to strive every day to reach those dreams.”
More accurately she should have said that through cinema they influence our children. Now, don’t take this that I am saying that parents can’t do anything about it, but the influences are still there.
Do you still think we shouldn’t be engaging in pop culture?
The sad fact is this, the lines between politics and pop culture are not just blurred, Michelle Obama and her bangs giving out the Oscar for Best Film shows that the lines have been completely erased. Sit on the sidelines if you want, but it will be to your detriment.
I do think that this is a fake, this seems awfully long for a letter to an editor. I also really hope that someone isn’t this stupid.

Repugnant. There really are no words for how digusting this is.
Yup, they are this crazy.
This only goes to prove you can’t win with the left. Had the republican house stayed firm and not agreed to raise taxes they would be blaming them for that. You just can’t win with these people. Had it not been for the republicans the tax increases would have been worse.
Also, isn’t the senate run by democrats? Yeah, I think it is.

Sadly, I would say this is the case with many people. They are low information voters who are conditioned to believe that they are democrats and that the democrats are working for their belief system. If they took just a little bit of time to do some research they would find that they don’t agree with the democrats on many issues.
