About That Letter of Apology…

By Craig Andresen – Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

A few days ago, Valley High School faced off against Des Moines North in an Iowa High School State Basketball Tournament game.

Valley won that hard-fought game, at least, they won it on the scoreboard…but elsewhere, they lost it big-time.

You see…it is something of a tradition at Valley High School, that when they play in the state tourney, their fans forego the school’s colors of black and orange, and instead wear red, white and blue as inspiration, cheering on their team to something greater than just a high school behind where the weathermen stands.

It is Iowa, after all, in the heartland of the nation where patriotism grows like crops in the fields and pride in one’s country is as natural, and normal, as going to the movies on a Friday night.

Weekend Edition: A Degree in Intellectual Bankruptcy

tnp eagleThis weekend, Vermont’s Goddard College, an asylum of higher indoctrination, squats to a new low as they will play the recorded words of cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal at their commencement ceremony.

This piece of trash stood over Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner in 1982 and emptied a gun into him. Abu-Jamal, then a member of the Black Panthers, has never denied doing it and never repented FOR doing it.

Here’s THE most disturbing part of the whole ‘Mumia as commencement speaker’ debacle…

It wasn’t the staff or the liberal/socialist elite who run the asylum who chose this murderer to be the speaker, to impart words of wisdom upon the assembled graduates…oh no…

According to the asylum’s interim president, one Bob Kenny…“As a reflection of Goddard’s individualized and transformational educational model, our commencements are intimate affairs where each student serves as her or his own valedictorian, and each class chooses its own speaker. Choosing Mumia as their commencement speaker, to me, shows how this newest group of Goddard graduates expresses their freedom to engage and think radically and critically in a world that often sets up barriers to do just that.”

That’s right…cop killer Mumia was chosen as this year’s commencement speaker by…the students…and if that doesn’t put the starch in your shorts to get you out to vote I a month…nothing will.

Let me explain…

Muskets Would Have Never Been Issued

Yesterday, the town of Depoe Bay, Oregon, cancelled their annual Independence Day fireworks celebration. This had been a well attended tradition since 1993.

By well attended, I don’t just mean that people turned out to watch the display but, they made a day of it and it had become a great boost to the local economy. Shop owners and restaurants, lodging establishments and gas stations had come to rely on the annual celebration.

Now, it’s gone and for what?

The birds.

That right, because of a bunch of Brandt’s Cormorants that apparently nest a mile from the bay where the fireworks USED to be shot off.

It seems there’s a bunch of bird brains who are scared that the Cormorants are scared of the fireworks and, well, they just can’t have THAT now, can they?

Sorry but, I’m not buying it.

It makes one wonder though, doesn’t it? Where we would be today had liberal/socialist, tree hugging namby pambies been ruling the roost 236 years ago?

Let’s take today’s liberal mentality and head back to the birth of this nation, shall we?
