We are what we believe. And the American people know it.
And I believe that over the next two... four... ten years...
Election by election...
State by state...
Precinct by precinct...
Door by door...
Vote by vote...
We're going to lift our Party up...
And we're going to take this country back for the people who built it.
NO MORE INSIDERS. We can't afford four more years of Democratic leadership by elite Washington insiders with little vision and losing records. Contact your state Democratic Party leaders and ask them support a Democratic National Committee chair who will reconnect the party with the grassroots and lead us to victory. We'll deliver your comments on Saturday.

But soldiers like Specialist Thomas Wilson, a scout with a Tennessee National Guard unit, had a few questions for the Sec.:
[Wilson] was the first to step forward, saying that soldiers had had to scrounge through landfills here for pieces of rusty scrap metal and bulletproof glass -- what they called "hillbilly armor" -- to bolt to their trucks.
"Why don't we have those resources readily available to us?" Specialist Wilson asked Mr. Rumsfeld, drawing cheers and applause from many of the 2,300 soldiers assembled in a cavernous hangar here to meet the secretary.
A few minutes later, a soldier from the Idaho National Guard's 116th Armored Cavalry Brigade asked Mr. Rumsfeld what he and the Army were doing "to address shortages and antiquated equipment" that will affect National Guard soldiers heading to Iraq.
Mr. Rumsfeld seemed taken aback by the question and a murmur began spreading through the ranks before he silenced it.
"Now, settle down, settle down," he said. "Hell, I'm an old man, it's early in the morning and I'm gathering my thoughts here."
Once he’d gathered his thoughts, Rumsfeld offered:
"You can have all the armor in the world on a tank and a tank can be blown up," he said. "And you can have an up-armored Humvee and it can be blown up."
"You go to war with the Army you have, not the Army you might want or wish to have at a later time."
There is no truer hero-warrior in all America.
American Psychological Association Statement on Homosexuality
This organization changed their stance on this human malfunction/ sexual perversion because of money. The gay activist and their lobbyist paid alot of money to get the opinion on homosexuality changed. If being gay was normal people wouldn't have to tell others what they are. It is a mental disorder on the cusps of insanity.

It's o.k to discuss aperversion of human relationships which is homosexuality, but the mention of God in a school causes many in the school board to shudder. Lets get these social terorist out of here!

As if we do not have enough problems with the kids! Homosexuality is not a civil right issue, not a life style, but a screw up of nature or, the choice of deviant looking for a " rich life style" the easy way. Please, let the parents handle their kids in their own turfs. The school should handle the proper curriculum and we all know what it is.

I will attend
I have two children in middle school and hate the current sex-ed curriculum. Since fifth grade they have been taught - Aids, Aids, Aids, and Aids! The proposed changes are going from bad to worse. Most parents do NOT want these warped values taught to their children.

promoting bisexuality to 8th graders?!
I will be at the meeting. It's absurd that the liberals who run Montgomery County want to promote bisexuality to 8th graders. It's recruitment, plain and simple. "Hey, Johnny, I know you say you like girls, but you should be tolerant and give bisexuality a try." --Coach Johnson

Fairness for board members
The decision by the schoosboard members is so irresponsible, and inconsiderate of parents, that they should be dismissed without opportunity to explain their actions.

It's about time parents take their children back. The public school system has had their hooks into the American children for years now. I remember in 1972 I was 16 years old and my teacher was teaching the class homosexuality, beastiality, and so on. Now that was 1972, being so young I always thought, why do they have to teach us this? Now its 2004 I can just imagine what the school system tries to ingrain in our childrens minds! This is a great idea, keep the good fight and you will surely win! Cynthia from California

School Board is Not on Board
As director of the Rockville Pregnancy Center, I strongly oppose the School Board's recent vote for teaching condom usage. Statistics from our Center for the past 15 years indicate that approximately 44% of clients become pregnant while their partner used condoms. This is the reality, and not what is listed in the literature.
Condoms provide false hope of protection not only from pregnancy, but from sexually transmitted diseases and infections as well. But most STDs are transmitted by skin-to-skin contact, areas not covered by a condom.
I am willing to come and speak with the School Board, along with our Prevention Specialist, on the many reasons that their decision is a wrong one.

Sex ed topic
I have lived in this county with my husband and 3 kids since 1986, opting to live here to benefit from the great education system for our special needs son (now 21). While I commend the county for their special education program I am thoroughly horrified at the extent to which the board will go to implement this "curriculum" on sexual diversity and how-to's. Our tax dollars should go to helping educate our future leaders in math, science, and how to put a sentence together so that the culture improves and can solve problems, not add to them by promoting activities which invariably lead to STD's, pregnancy, and heartbreak. It is outrageous that they call themselves educators and I will do everything in my power to fire this board and start with a new one. Your fired!

Outraged in Montgomery County
My husband and I are college educated tax paying citizens of Montgomery County. We are outraged that six people on a school board can call any opposition to their viewpoint "The Minority Report". As a grandparent, I am outraged that you will continue to cancel funding for art and music programs and after school activites, and then institute a program teaching sexual ethics to 13 and 14 year olds. No wonder Japan and other foreign countries send their children to school here and they win all the scholarships and awards. Their heads are not filled with sexual drivel that will not help them compete in the global marketplace. Shame on all of you for thinking you are so omnipotent that you know what is best for everyone elses's child. What goes around comes around and I will be very vocal at the next election about this Board and it's outrageous antics.

you should be ashamed
Well you've finally done it. My wife and I will be actively working and doing all we can to get each of you recalled. We've never been politically active before, or motivated to action in this way. However, we will be recruiting others to this effort.
As an aside, let me suggest you open your eyes to what's going on in the world. Do you think the Japanese, Chinese, or Indians teach this kind of thing in their schools? Of course not.

Stop promoting EVIL to the young minds of our children!!! I am a resident of Montgomery County and I am among the almost 100% of those who are repulsed by your plans to teach sex education in Montgomery County Schools that promotes the clear ideas that homosexuality and oral sex (that's what the flavored condoms promotes!!!) is just okay and all right. The young mind which is presented with this pure evil filth is the most vulnerable to its influence. Teachings such as these will most certainly turn otherwise good children into over-experimental children who soon become regular participants in the practices of homosexuality and oral sex.
You need to resign from your jobs immediately, if this is what you think is good school government!!

throw the bumbs out
Dear Poolesville High School and Montgomery County School Board, the reason my three sons will never attend your liberal indoctrination "education program" is because you far exceed your area of expertise. I would hope you have a staff of educators that have advanced degrees in the core subjects. Not a staff of deviant minded professional sex workers. You continue to engage in social engineering instead of core value education that will prepare our children to succeed in the highly competative global employment sectors. When will it stop? How many young lives will you forever damage, destroy and devistate by thrusting them into premature sex rolls? Your arrogance on this issue is unacceptable. Recall and dismiss the School Board members as soon as possible.

We vote for the recall of the school board. Get someone
who believes reading, writing, and arithmetic is important.

Indoctrination not education!
This is not education it is indoctrination! What right does the school board have to do this to our children? They should all be recalled. Maybe they should give out coupons for free abortions for students who complete the course. These morons have to be held accountable or things will only get worse.

Yesterday:I think Rev. Hintz is a perfectly legitimate soldier in "the war with our culture that's going on." By having an immoral, illegal sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl, the Reverend has proven that a) he is not a homosexual and b) he is not (so we think) a Muslim.
Bush introduced Mike and Sharla Hintz, a couple from Clive, whom he said benefited from his tax plan.
Last year, because of the enhanced the child tax credit, they received an extra $1,600 in their tax refund, Bush said. With other tax cuts in the bill, they saved $2,800 on their income taxes.
They used the money to buy a wood-burning stove to more efficiently heat their home, made some home improvements and went on a vacation to Minnesota, the president said.
"Next year, maybe they'll want to come to Texas," Bush quipped.
Mike Hintz, a First Assembly of God youth pastor, said the tax cuts also gave him additional money to use for health care.
He said he supports Bush's values.
"The American people are starting to see what kind of leader President Bush is. People know where he stands," he said.
"Where we are in this world, with not just the war on terror, but with the war with our culture that's going on, I think we need a man that is going to be in the White House like President Bush, that's going to stand by what he believes.
A Des Moines youth pastor is charged with the sexual exploitation of a child.
KCCI learned that the married father of four recently turned himself in to Johnston police.
Rev. Mike Hintz was fired from the First Assembly of God Church, located at 2725 Merle Hay Road, on Oct. 30. Hintz was the youth pastor there for three years.
Police said he started an affair with a 17-year-old in the church youth group this spring.
For those of you not blocked, I encourage you to keep posting messages. And send copies of those messages to me. Also, take advantage of the contact info on the site to write your own messages of support to the school board members themselves.
I was interviewed last night by a reporter for The Black and White, the newspaper at my alma mater Walt Whitman H.S., named after a militant homosexual poet who attempted to foist his radical agenda on our nation; he also worked to recruit youth into 'the lifestyle.'
So I'll post the story when it runs.
Here he's quoting Adorno's The Authoritarian Personality (1950):
The pseudo-conservative, Adorno writes, shows ‘conventionality and authoritarian submissiveness’ in his conscious thinking and ‘violence, anarchic impulses, and chaotic destructiveness in the unconscious sphere…The pseudo-conservative is a man who, in the name of upholding traditional American values and institutions and defending them against more or less fictitious dangers, consciously or unconsciously aims at their abolition.’
Here he's quoting Leo Lowenthal and Norbert Guterman's Prophets of Deceit (1949):
'The [right-wing] agitator seems to steer clear of the area of material needs on which liberal and democratic movements concentrate; his main concern is a sphere of frustration that is usually ignored in traditional politics. The programs that concentrate on material needs seem to overlook that area of moral uncertainties and emotional frustrations that are the immediate manifestations of malaise. It may therefore be conjectured that his followers find the agitator’s statements attractive not because he occasionally promises to "maintain the American standard of living" or to provide a job for everyone, but because he intimates that he will give them the emotional satisfactions that are denied them in the contemporary social and economic set-up. He offers attitudes, not bread.’
For pseudo-conservatism is among other things a disorder in relation to authority, characterized by an inability to find other modes for human relationship than those of more or less complete domination or submission. The pseudo-conservative always imagines himself to be dominated and imposed upon because he feels that he is not dominant, and knows of no other way of interpreting his position.If only Hofstadter had lived to read this post from AmCop's inaugural day:
