Hundreds of Colorado students protest history curriculum changes that would promote Patriotism

Hundreds of students walked out of classrooms around suburban Denver on Tuesday in protest over a conservative-led school board proposal to focus history education on topics that promote citizenship, patriotism and respect for authority, in a show of civil disobedience that the new standards would aim to downplay.

The youth protest in the state’s second-largest school district follows a sick-out from teachers that shut down two high schools in the politically and economically diverse area that has become a key political battleground.

Student participants said their demonstration was organized by word of mouth and social media. Many waved American flags and carried signs, including messages that read “There is nothing more patriotic than protest.”

“I don’t think my education should be censored. We should be able to know what happened in our past,” said Tori Leu, a 17-year-old student who protested at Ralston Valley High School in Arvada.

The school board proposal that triggered the walkouts in Jefferson County calls of instructional materials that present positive aspects of the nation and its heritage. It would establish a committee to regularly review texts and course plans, starting with Advanced Placement history, to make sure materials “promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free-market system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights” and don’t “encourage or condone civil disorder, social strike or disregard of the law.”

The proposal from Julie Williams, part of the board’s conservative majority, has not been voted on and was put on hold last week. She didn’t return a call from The Associated Press seeking comment Tuesday, but previously told Chalkbeat Colorado, a school news website, that she recognizes there are negative events that are part of U.S. history that need to be taught.

“There are things we may not be proud of as Americans,” she said. “But we shouldn’t be encouraging our kids to think that America is a bad place.”

A student demonstrator, Tyrone G. Parks, a senior at Arvada High School, said Tuesday that the nation’s foundation was built on civil protests, “and everything that we’ve done is what allowed us to be at this point today. And if you take that from us, you take away everything that America was built off of.”

The proposal comes from an elected board with three conservative members who took office in November. The other two board members were elected in 2011 and oppose the new plan, which was drafted in response to a national framework for teaching history that supporters say encourages discussion and critical thinking. Detractors, however, say it puts an outsize emphasis on the nation’s problems.

Tension over high school education has cropped up recently in Texas, where conservative school board officials are facing criticism over new textbooks. Meanwhile, in South Carolina, conservatives have called on an education oversight committee to ask the College Board, which oversees Advanced Placement courses, to rewrite their framework to make sure there is no ideological bias.

The College Board says the outline provides a balanced view of American history, and officials plan clarify instructions to teachers to make that clear by the end of the month.

Participating students were not punished, school district spokeswoman Lynn Setzer said. They will receive unexcused absences unless their parents call to relay permission for missed classes, Setzer said.

Superintendent Dan McMinimee has met with some of the students and renewed his offer to continue discussions on the issue. “I respect the right of our students to express their opinions in a peaceful manner,” he said. “I do, however, prefer that our students stay in class.”

It was the Best of Times and now it is the Worst of Times for America

I remember a simpler time in America not so long ago when we as a people had a common respect and reverence for our Rich Heritage and Traditions.

One might say it was the Best of Times as we all prospered and held fast those Time Honored Values that made this the Greatest Nation the World has ever known.

We were United in the belief that Freedom was a God given right to all men and women and worked hard to insure that we became that very Ideal.

We were the last best hope for all of mankind on Planet Earth.

Then Came the Break Down of the American Family

Americans began to enjoy the Fruits of their Labor and worked hard to live a better life. We moved to the Suburbs and began to enjoy the luxuries afforded us by our own prosperity.

Soon we found ourselves preoccupied with the cares of our success and buried ourselves in our technology to the point with which we forgot who we were and began living life as a video game escaping the realities of the World around us.

Not wanting to leave anyone behind we struggle to bring equality to all in the form of Social Justice only to find ourselves allowing the few to rule the many.

Our success caused us to have such a belief in ourselves that we soon found our need for God beginning to diminish in our daily lives.

We allowed our Schools to take from us our Parental Rights and gave them the power to teach our children those things which defied the natural order of our Traditional Family Values.

We have produced a new generation of Americans that are now Selfless, Godless, and Morally Depraved. We have only ourselves to blame and reversing this trend is rapidly becoming the new Epic Battle for which America must fight.

993976_10151573251380773_867779571_n1

Stand up America and fight for what is right. Stand up and let your voice be heard. Unless we reverse this Progressive Socialist Lie that has gripped our Country all might be lost and we may find ourselves, our children and our children’s children  facing a thousand years of darkness.

Obama’s ‘Keystone Cop’ Administration has got to Go!

keystone cop

By now I am sure that just about every American is fed up with the Key Stone Cops we elected to represent us in Washington.  Over the last ten or fifteen years we have watched our political leaders play out their greedy games and childish attacks on one another all the while ignoring the wants and needs of their constituents.  We have watched them in their march to grab as much power as they can from We the People all the while lining their pockets with the fruits of our labor.

I say Enough is Enough already because the time has come for us to put into power a 3rd Party that will insure our constitutional rights and put an end to the stalemate we have been seeing in our nations capitol.

The time has come and is long overdo for the Tea Party to pull itself up by its Grass Roots and become a real contender in our nations political arena.

America’s Soul…by AFVet

EGAL-and-FLAG-640x640America has a Soul,

did you know that ?

By AFVet

She has a Soul because of US.

americas-soul-title

You know,….We the People of the United States of America.

The ones that love Her.

The Bible tells us that the soul never dies and will be reunited with the body for eternity.

The body will die but the Soul remains.

The body of America ebbs and flows due to circumstances sometimes beyond our control but Her Soul has been established throughout the world as the greatest Country that has ever existed.

prayer-blog-artPoliticians come and go and are capable of influencing the direction on a temporary basis.

Our Founders set up a system that we can use to prevent a monarchy, either by a president or our representatives.

It is up to us to use it effectively, and that takes some degree of knowledge.

The accumulation of said knowledge takes some work.

Sad that many people do not feel it necessary to indulge in the effort to educate themselves as to who the potential candidates may be or should be.

On the eve of the 2014 elections, the Soul of America is once again being tested.

I am an optimist.

I think that the Soul of America is alive and well and stronger than ever due to the awakening of the people of this Country that have finally realized the condition this Country is in thanks to:

Patriots Unite !

This magnificent Country is being threatened from internal forces that we…

CAN STOP.

It is up to US.

Are YOU up to the challenge ?

Draft Sarah Palin for President in 2016

sarah-palin-ronald-reagan-470x434Of all the Presidential Candidates seeking a 2016 run for the Presidency I can think of no one more qualified and Patriotic to lead this country out of the darkness of its current Socialistic state.

Sarah Palin has stood the test of time and is the real deal for all things Conservative in these United States.

It is my hope that the Tea Party will draft Sarah Palin for a Presidential run. The time has come to upset the apple cart and I can think of no one better qualified and equipped to defeat the Socialist/Marxists that will surely come out of the Democrat Party. 

Draft Sarah Palin for President in 2016!

You’ve Tread on US Mr. President…BIG MISTAKE!

6089_1103000091763_1129548511_30265428_7533877_n

Mr. President,

Because you control the Media and what Americans read and hear on the news it seems you are under the illusion of being popular and unbeatable come November. You Sir, have an awakening coming that will dwarf your wake up call from the 2010 Mid-term Elections.

You see Mr. President We the People are fully awake and We Have Not Yet Begun to fight. Conservative Talk Radio Hosts and Conservative Bloggers have been busy these past 51/2 years alerting the American People to your real agenda all the while exposing your deceptions and lies.

Mr. President, America will not go down without a fight and this is one fight you and your Marxist Comrades cannot win.

It’s About Freedom Mr. President and when it comes to Freedom the American People have a Rich History of Victory !

You’ll be hearing from US in November!

We the People…

Have not yet Begun to Fight

T’was Apathy that Killed the Dream

mcnaughton-wake-up-america-620x412

We have watched as this President and the former Democratically Controlled  Congress passed legislation behind closed doors and against the will of the people.

 

We have watched as this President has spent us into oblivion and beyond .

 

We have watched as this President encouraged Racial Tensions and blatant Racism in Our Country undoing so much of the gains that were made over the years.

 

We have watched as this President traveled abroad and apologized to our enemies for America.

 

We have watched as this President began to disarm America systematically all the while knowing the Chinese and Russians were smiling in disbelief at his ignorance.

 

This President may choose to bow down before our enemies if he wishes too, but We the People bow down to no one,  especially him!

 

I could go on and on and fill up pages with all the things this President, this Administration and the former Democratically  Controlled  Congress have done to and against the American people but I think you get the point of my message here today.

 

WE HAVE WATCHED AND YET WE HAVE DONE…

NOTHING!
