America is being torn to shreds from WITHIN!!!
Over 100 years ago, communism founding father, Vladimir Lenin, knew exactly what he was saying when he called American liberals, "Useful idiots." And as Jesus implored His Father's u to "Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do."
We are faced with the greatest enemy we've ever faced: millions of ignorant, naive and in many cases, stupid liberals. Many do not know the destruction they are wrecking on our country.
It is painfully obvious to me that we can no longer repair the insidious damage that has been done to our country since the early 1900's.
I think that we have created or at the least created a God sized problem that only He can fix. We must pray to the point of night sweats for God to intervene and rescue our country from ourselves!!!
Yes, we have met the enemy, and it is us!
It is not impossible for our salvation to happen. St. Paul wrote in Hebrews 11:1, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
Let's all pray that God will extract the poison of the Lenin's and the likes of George Soros and save the USA, for we are the last and greatest hope for the survival of Western Civilization.
Without God we can't and without us, He won't.
The more I see various teacher union representatives and leaders, the more I’m convinced that they only care about two things, power and more power. I don’t believe that they give a rats ass about the students they are supposedly dedicated to. If they were, they’ed welcome their parents having the option to choose what school is best. They always accuse those parents that want the freedom to choose of being racists, bigots, selfish, elitists and anti teachers union.
But what about all the people that are trapped and left without the ability to choose a better education for their children? Consigning those poor families is somehow not also a form of racism, bigotry, selfishness, elitism and anti labor? It sure seems that way.
Almost every anti school choice liberal member of Congress, has their children enrolled in private or elite schools. Hypocrites like the Clinton’s and Obama’s enrolled their kids in ritzy schools like Sidwell Friends with a staggering tuition of $41,000 annually.
So whenever you see a teachers union rally composed of angry educators, think of the selfishness of those greedy power hungry losers.

A father's love and understanding of his son's autism encouraged him to make sure autistic children around the world have a fulfilling life.Sports fans may recognize Michael Romano III voice. He's an announcer for the junior amateur hockey team Chicago Steel and a commentator on the website the Daily Coppock.
"I love hockey, I played from when I was a little kid," Romano said. "I was a goalie so I miss playing the game so much that I finally stopped when I was 37, but it's in my blood. " 25:30
Michael is also the father of four, three girls and a boy. Michael is 24 years old.
"Michael is autistic," Romano said. "His specific diagnosis is, I think developmental dysphasia, but he's on the autism spectrum with low functioning and, of course, we did not know that he was disabled until he was about 15 or 16 months old.
"It was devasting. I always had a dream of what I would be able to do with my son and I felt that maybe I was being punished by God for whatever reason. I went through all the stages of grief and then my life changed because of him."
The one thing they are able to share is hockey.
"We go to every Blackhawk game almost and that's the one thing we do together," Romano said. "Otherwise, he doesn't like to leave the house every much, but he loves to be at the Blackhawk games. It's alot of fun."
In 2006, the eldest Romano made a trip to Bosnia.
"I went there on a spiritual pilgrimage and during the pilgrimage, we went to see this clinic for disabled kids and it broke my heart," he said. "They really don't have much resources, the training. They really didn't know what to do and they did not accept autistic children because they didn't know what to do with them.
"I talked to them and I said would you accept autistic kids and they said if they know how to deal with them they said they would and I said what if I brought a team here to train you.
"So I brought a medical team a few years ago, about eight people, to train them and I donated and raised money. Autistic children are now being accepted there for the first time."
Michael has learned more about life thanks to his son.
"My son has made me such a better person," Romano said. "What I learned was that I had to let go of the son that I wanted so that I could love the son I had and that changed my life. It's implacable to anybody."
The younger Romano works at Guiding Light Academy in Woodridge, Il.
If we didn't already have enough to worry about, there is a fatal threat to our children that we freely allow in our homes......TELEVISIONS!!
I ran across this disturbing article in The Week, by author, Chris Gayomali. I have always worried about my kids, especially when they were young. There are so many things that can go wrong and many can be fatal. There is of course crib death, drowning, all kinds of diseases, auto accidents, sports injuries among the myriad of possibilities. But there is one thing that I never feared.....death by falling televisions.
According to Gayomali's research, since 2000 more than 200 children have been killed by falling TV sets. ThinkStock/Hemera
"December 14, 2012, On Black Friday, many Americans lined up in the biting cold to take advantage of steep discounts on new TVs. But, as desirable as this go-to appliance is, it also poses unsuspected dangers. According to the latest report from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, 41 people — mostly children — were killed by falling TVs in last year. Since 2000, more than 200 children have died that way. More startling stats: 18,000 people are injured by falling sets every year; three children are injured by a tipped-over TV every hour; and one child is killed every two weeks.
The tip-overs are mainly caused by incidents in which people climb on the set (36 percent of such cases involve children) or hit or kick it (14 percent). These tragedies are occurring, the report suggests, as more consumers opt for flat-screens and move their older, heavier sets (which can weigh as much as 100 pounds) to the bedroom. "Children will climb up on furniture to try to turn the TV on and there goes the heavy television as well as the piece of furniture," says Inez Tenenbaum, chairman of the commission. Many heavy TVs are being placed on furniture that isn't designed to hold them properly, especially dressers.
Obviously, you can't eyeball your kids at all times, but you can minimize the odds that your child will end up as another statistic:
1. Double-check that your flat-screen is securely mounted to the wall.Just as importantly, talk to your children about changing the channel safely if they can't find the remote. Calmly set rules. Let them know that standing on furniture or climbing to reach the TV is strictly off limits.
2. Anchor your TV. Use common sense and don't place the set on a taller or unsteady piece of furniture — dresser, table, shelf, or kitchen counter — where it has the potential to fall on someone's head.
3. Place your TV on a low, sturdy base. This is especially important if a wall mount isn't possible."
So I think that we all owe Chris Gayomali a debt of gratitude. Instead of just worrying about what the kids are watching on TV, we can now worry about the TV being on the kids.
There has never been a more unqualified, unaccomplished, undeserving, inexperienced, unpatriotic, racially divisive leftist POTUS in American history.
Some day when historians puzzle over how this empty suit was elected, they will come to the following conclusions. He was voted in by a largely uninformed, naive and in some cases, downright stupid people. His main attribute was being a clean and articulate black man, nothing more. If it's even possible, It will take at least ten years to clean up the mess that fraud perpetrated on us. Obama deserved being elected POTUS as much as he deserved the Nobel Prize for Peace, for doing nothing but talking.
I went shopping today and was waited on by a wonderful middle-aged woman named Liama, an immigrant from Lithuania. I asked her where she was from, and she began almost immediately to share how happy she was in America. She credited Ronald Reagan for saving her life and those of her mother and two brothers when the President challenged Gorbachev to "tear down that wall!"
Many years previous back home, in a forest nearby her home, her father was executed for resisting the Communist regime and his hidden bones were recovered there only recently. Her two brothers were simultaneously sent off to a Siberian prison and only survived when Gorbachev withdrew his troops from that country and they were released from prison.
She was so effusive in praise of America that she became emotional and began to cry. She also said that she did not understand how some of our citizens could violently protest against our country. She said if they only knew what life was like in countries in the old USSR and other places now, they would kiss the ground. I think of my college educated nephew, Ryan, strongly feels that our country should abandon capitalism and embrace communism. He said that we would be much better off with our wealth redistributed so that there was greater equality.
Perhaps Liama and others like her, should go on a lecture tour of our public schools and tell our kids the truth about the beacon of freedom that America is and offer a desperately needed alternative to the liberal pap that they are brainwashed with on a daily basis.
If the kids really are looking for a safe space, Liama would tell them, "You already found it.....you're in America!!!"
