Sick Culture Causes School Murders, Texas Official Claims

Americans should not be “surprised” by the recent uptick in school shootings because the nation has “devalued life,” “desensitized” children to violence and hasn’t “done anything to harden the target at our schools,” Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) said Sunday on ABC News’ “This Week.”

Patrick reacted to Friday’s Santa Fe High School shooting — which was carried out by suspect Dmitrios Pagourtzis, 17, and left 10 people dead and 13 others wounded — during appearances Sunday on both “This Week” and CNN’s “State of the Union.”

As the national debate regarding gun control and Second Amendment protections reignited with renewed vigor following the shooting, Patrick urged Americans to seek and recognize the source of the violence.

“George, should we be surprised in this nation? We have devalued life, whether it’s through abortion, whether it’s the breakup of families, through violent movies, and particularly violent video games, which now outsell movies and music,” Patrick said to “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos.

“Psychologists and psychiatrists will tell you that students are desensitized to violence, [and] may have lost empathy for their victims by watching hours and hours of video violent games. Are we desensitized, are these children, are these teenagers?” Patrick asked.

Coddling Addicts with ‘Safe-Injection Sites’ Is No Way to Fight Opioids

Recovery from drug dependencies requires the decision that sobriety is better than any 'high' — then living one day at a time

Certain buzzwords, phrases and terms do not just spontaneously appear in the public realm, but are rather created to advance cultural, social and political agendas. Essentially, this amounts to advertising messages intended to generate instant recall among a mass audience in the hopes a particular cause is embraced among large segments of the U.S. population.

Widely known terms such as Black Lives Matter, climate change and #MeToo illustrate the effectiveness of this technique. Here is one you may not have heard of, but you will as the opioid epidemic shows no signs of slowing down: “harm reduction.”

Just as one can separate the branding from the agenda in all of these terms, so, too, can one see what’s at play here, a national movement to coddle drug addicts. You see, harm reduction is a catch-all phrase encompassing safe-injection sites, medically assisted treatment, and needle-exchange programs — and it’s all coming to a city near you.

This boils down to "eat the food, lose the weight," just as we hear on weight-loss commercials. In this case, though, the wrong approach to recovery can lead to repeated cycles of relapse and ultimately death.

Stacey Vs. Stacey: The Democratic Fight For Governor In Georgia

There are two Democrats running for governor in Georgia — Stacey Abrams, who's black and Stacey Evans, who's white. It's a contest that's underscored how complicated race remains for Democrats.

The two candidates running for governor in the Georgia Democratic primary on May 22 have plenty of similarities: they're both women named Stacey; they're both former legislators in the Georgia House of Representatives; they're both lawyers; and they're both calling for similar progressive policies, such as expanding Medicaid.

But Stacey Abrams is black. And Stacey Evans is white. The color of their skin is the most obvious, if not superficial, difference between the two women.

And it's led to a racialized campaign full of competing strategies on how you win.

No Democrat has won a gubernatorial or U.S. senate race in Georgia in more than a decade. For some context, in 2014, both the Democratic gubernatorial nominee Jason Carter and the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate Michelle Nunn lost by about 200,000 votes. So the question is — how does a Democrat in 2018 find those additional 200,000 votes?

Manners, Morals, and Political Correctness

Are manners and morals essentially the same? Are manners merely "small morals," as Thomas Hobbes defines them? Or is there a fundamental distinction?

Moral philosophy is about our understanding of virtue or righteousness. Manners, on the other hand, focus upon public or political behavior. We might draw the distinction between manners and morals by stating that manners are instrumental behaviors while morals are existential. One might differentiate them by pointing out that manners are social behaviors subject to place and time. Manners govern actions. Morals, on the other hand, define how we "ought" to interact.

Since what we do is connected to why we should do it, manners and morals were investigated by both social scientists and philosophers. Aristotle described manners as "practical wisdom" as opposed to philosophical wisdom. Practical or political wisdom is devoted to man's self-interest or what is good for the individual. But what is good for the individual must be evaluated against what is good in general. Practical wisdom is about how a man may obtain something that is good for him. Philosophical wisdom seeks to understand what is good.

Much of our moral awareness derives from our perceptions of what feels good. That is why David Hume argues that we determine virtue or vice by how we feel rather than what we think. Despite a common perceptual origin, morals and manners have developed differently. While we may see moral intentions in a display of good manners, it is often the case that politeness as we observe in politics and diplomacy is little more than lying, obfuscating a darker intention.

Middle Schoolers in W.Va. Had to Write ‘Allah Is the One True God’ in Arabic

A West Virginia parent, Rich Penkoski, was displeased to see his seventh-grade daughter bring home a “calligraphy” assignment that asked students to write an Islamic pledge to Allah in Arabic last week.

He contacted the principal, Ron Branch, at Mountain Ridge Middle School — and wanted an explanation as to why his daughter was asked to inscribe the shahada.

The Arabic passage translates to “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the prophet of Allah.”

“I saw the assignment of writing the shahada in Arabic. [The school’s] excuse was calligraphy,” Penkoski told The Christian Post.

“I was like, ‘Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!’ First of all, calligraphy was invented in China 3,000 years prior to Muhammad. The fact that they were trying to get my daughter to write that disturbed me,” the father continued.

“I said, ‘That is not happening. My daughter is not doing that,'” Penkoski added. “My daughter told me that if she didn’t do the assignment, then she was going to get a [detention] slip.”

Penkoski said the school told him that the teacher, Katherine Hinson, had only added the calligraphy worksheet with the Islamic religion packet as an optional exercise. The dad believes he was given this line because he raised objections, according to The Christian Post.

"If it was optional, then why was there no option for comparison for Judaism and Christianity? There was no option to recite any of the Lord's Prayer and [the] Ten Commandments. There was no option to write Hebrew," Penkoski said. "Why [was] it only [about] Islam?"

Rush: Deep State Damaged U.S. Elections Beyond Putin’s Wildest ‘Dreams’

Friday on his nationally syndicated radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh hammered former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and argued that the “deep state” had damaged American elections beyond what Limbaugh said were Russian President Vladimir Putin’s wildest dreams.

Partial transcript as follows:

(BEGIN AUDIO)

CLAPPER: And I think it’s hugely danger if someone like that is exposed because, uh, the danger to that person, not to mention the reluctance of others to be informants for the FBI. And the FBI gains a lot of valuable information from informants. So — so — so to me, this is incredible.

(END AUDIO)

LIMBAUGH: So it’s perfect… Okay. I tell you what. I’ll tell you what then, Clapper. Whoever you people run in 2020, we’re gonna put a spy on! It’s gonna be a valuable thing. We’re gonna find out who it is that might be trying to rig the election for you. If the Russians tampering with campaigns is the big deal… You heard Clapper say, “It’s not Trump. No, no. This is hyperbole! We were trying to find out what the Russians were doing because the Russians were tampering.”

You people have done more to damage the integrity of the American electoral process than Vladimir Putin could in his dreams! And I’m not joking. With what these people have done for the last year and a half — basically get people thinking the election was stolen, that it was illegitimate, that the Russians didn’t want Hillary and wanted Trump and made it happen — look at what they have done to the image, the reputation of the American electoral system and process.

The Pox of Multiculturalism

What the left calls "multiculturalism" is actually the systematic destruction of cultures and the replacement of these cultures by a synthetic, artificial, and meaningless global culture. When the left talks about "diversity," it really means the crushing of differences in thought, values, and art into a sort of baby food which neither nourishes the soul or elevates the mind.

This is because cultural differences are based on geography and exist in nations and regions rather than in the nonsensical "global" community. Indeed, there are cultural differences within most nations of any size that reflect the differences within parts of a nation.

Canada is a good example. Quebec decades ago insisted upon the preservation of the French language and with it French culture in that quarter of Canada. Scotland is likewise a nation within the United Kingdom that the English allowed to retain Scottish state religion; Scottish money; Scottish judicial systems; and, over the last few decades, an independent Scottish Parliament.

America includes the cultures of the South, the Midwest, the Rocky Mountains, and so on. People who live in those parts of America view "Washington" with about as much contempt as the Irish viewed London and the Ukrainians viewed Moscow. The centralization of power within large nations almost always means the imposition of an imperial culture upon regions that are closer to colonies than co-equal polities.

Go Fund Me For An Ocean City Maryland Speeding Ticket, Ridiculous!

Hi Everyone, creating this to fight back the excessive ticketing in OCMD crusing meet this weekend. This money will be used to help out 10 people to aquire an attorney with the highest tickets amounts. I am working on getting a better rate with an attorney if we hire as a group. Instead of individual. So might be able to help out a few more people.

This event is about having fun, not funding OC. They clearly just care about the money. If this was a safety concern people would be losing their cars or getting arrested.

I was a victim myself of this stacking of tickets and will post my fines as well which totaled to $1800

Please post your tickets as I will be keeping track of others who are victims of this excessivness as well.

Hopefully we can reach our goal by the end of next week and can start the process of getting representation as quickly as possible.


Trump Is Going Full Alinsky – and His Opponents Are Flummoxed

Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals is considered a bible to the left, a how-to guide for community organizing and activism. Barack Obama was an Alinsky protégé before, during, and after his presidency. Obama used the rules to his advantage, advancing his left-wing agenda.

The left, despite conventional wisdom, has no monopoly on Alinsky's rules. Instead these rules can be used by the right, also as blueprint for effecting change.

The dirty little secret is that Alinsky has little in common with modern leftists. As Ralph Benko writes, "Alinsky was an aggressively anti-communist, anti-big government, populist with a healthy contempt for liberals." He would more likely be found at a Tea Party rally wearing a MAGA hat than at a resistance march wearing a pink pussy hat.

President Trump is reaping the results this month of his foreign policy initiatives. He blew up Obama's sketchy Iran deal. The U.S. embassy opened in Jerusalem, fulfilling a promise made, but never kept, by a slew of recent U.S. presidents. Trump is hopefully sitting down with North Korea's Kim Jung-un after Kim pledged to scrap his nuke program, despite media reports of last-minute attempts by Kim to scuttle the talks. Trump is keeping and following through on promises his predecessors have made but tossed aside due to lack of resolve or political expediency.

All in all, it's been a few good weeks for a rube, unfit for the presidency, out of his depth in conducting foreign affairs, with a temperament to make war as opposed to peace.

So how did it happen?

Bowie High School students in black masks simulate school shooting as a senior prank

BOWIE, Md. (WJLA) — A group of Bowie High School students were involved in an incident where they dressed in black, shot students and faculty with replica squirt guns, and set off fireworks in the school as a senior prank.

The incident took place on May 15.

At least one student was hurt. And many are saying the so-called prank went too far.

The students face discipline and possible charges. The incident occurred in the high school's main building, according to a letter from Bowie High School principal Robynne W. Prince.

"Around 10:45 a.m., a small group of students participated in an inappropriate "senior prank" that resulted in a school evacuation," the letter in part reads. "The prank involved spraying students and staff with squirt guns and setting off fireworks in the hallway."

"School administration is taking this incident very seriously and coordinating with local police; the students involved will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law and disciplined according to the PGCPS Student Code of Conduct."

Don't Let Local Media Fool You

While there's no question Cruisin Weekend was much smaller then past years because of the weather, please don't mislead viewers that business was way down because that's just not completely true. 

Business in Ocean City might have been slower, (tickets/fines) however, that was not the case in West Ocean City. There are some of us, (me included) who have seen for decades that West Ocean City was going to boom. In fact, my friend Mark Odachowski recently purchased the Alamo Motel on Rt. 50 and immediately and completely remodeled the entire facility. Mark just cut a deal to put Mothers Cantina restaurant at that location as well. Considering our facilities connect, we will partner with this restaurant, (food) to be delivered to OC Billiards @ Trader Lee's. 

There is a group of us who will be working diligently to market the West Ocean City boom in business as WE, (pictures shown on Saturday) enjoyed a major increase in business and NOT a drop in business, as WBOC suggested this morning. Obviously there are two sides to every Liberal story. 

For those of you who traveled to Ocean City recently you will notice the parking lots to all of the new hotels on Rt. 50 being completely packed. West Ocean City is the future. We are all supporting each other and will ultimately make sure events like Bike Week or Cruisin Weekend will not disappear because Ocean City doesn't want them. We are a powerful group of people/businessmen, (not politicians) who will take over and make things right, as it should be. 

Al Sharpton says royal wedding shows white supremacy is ‘on its last breath’

Al Sharpton said the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who is biracial, is a sign that white supremacy is "on its last breath."

Sharpton spoke of the nuptials during his weekly National Action Network rally Saturday in Harlem as millions across the globe had their eyes transfixed on the over-the-top affair Saturday between Harry and Markle, whose mother is black and father is white.

"When you got little white girls in Wales saying, 'I want to be like Meghan,' there's a shift worldwide that white male supremacy is on its last breath," Sharpton said.

Breaking News: The U.S. has put on hold its plan to impose sweeping tariffs on China as it presses forward with talks to reduce its trade deficit with Beijing

Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury secretary, said on Sunday that the two countries had made progress as they concluded two days of intense trade negotiations in Washington late last week. The planned tariffs — on Chinese steel and aluminum, as well as $150 billion worth of other Chinese goods — are off the table while the talks proceed, he said.

“We’re putting the trade war on hold,” Mr. Mnuchin said on “Fox News Sunday.”

Rahzel was just announced as one of the performers for the Salisbury Folk Festival. Doesn't sound "folky" to me

As we ALL knew would happen, there was absolutely no way Folk music was going to work in Mayor Jake Day's Folk Festival, hence the newest lineup of RAPPERS being booked in Salisbury. SBYNews viewers who actually frequent these Folk Festivals stated early on, they had never heard of the groups Day had already lined up for this event, now they're in for a major change. 

All I can say is, the City of Salisbury better pony up the major money it will cost to hire Sheriff's Deputies to secure this event because it's NOT going to be pretty. 

Breaking News: Amphitheater To Be Delayed Several Weeks

The state of Maryland is requiring storm water management for the new amphitheater in Downtown Salisbury, something Mayor Day and engineers didn't plan for. I say that because there's a major power line underneath the project that has to be removed by DP&L for the City to put a drain pipe underneath it. 

Then comes the MDE because the City's plan to drain directly into the River is a no, no. Nevertheless, DP&L is not going to jump simply because the City says jump. To top it off it will cost the City an additional $17,000.00 for DP&L to move the line and this fee is not included in the budget. 

Once again, when you put a child in a mans job, this is the kind of thing taxpayers have to swallow. Can you say change order fee?

Breaking News: There are multiple fatalities in a school shooting in southeast Texas, a local official said. A suspect is in custody.

Multiple people were killed, and others were injured, in a shooting on Friday morning at Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Tex., according to local officials. A suspect was in custody.

At least three people were killed, according to Mark Henry, the Galveston County judge, the county’s top elected official. The injured included at least one police officer, Mr. Henry said.

LOTTERY WINNER ARRESTED FOR DUMPING $200,000 OF MANURE ON EX-BOSS’ LAWN

A man from Illinois was arrested for getting $224,000 worth of manure dumped on his former employer’s property, only two weeks after he won $125 million at the lottery and quit his job.

54-year old Brian Morris, from the small town of Clarendon Hills in Dupage County, bought over 20,000 tons of manure and asked for it to be dumped on his former boss’ property, pretending it was his residence.

Dozens of trucks filled with manure showed up in front of the house around 6:00 this morning and began dumping their smelly cargo over the property’s lawn.

George Fitzgerald, Mr. Morris’ former employer, was awakened by the sound of the vehicles on his property and rapidly called the police.

Unfortunately, it took the police more than 15 minutes to arrive on the site, and more than 10,000 tons of manure had already been dumped in the meantime.

UPDATE on odd phone calls

Terry Scott Went to let the school board no what happened they called the head resource officer who upon arrival started going off on me. I went to the school board to let them know of this scam so other parents would be aware. He was more concerned with what o told the deputy yesterday. This guy was a real asshole. The school board did say the would let parents know. As for the seargent... I just wanted to let other parents know. He has no buisness talking to people the way he did. Again I did not ask for him

Hillary Clinton is still making Democrats pay for 2016

Hillary Clinton headlined her first post-2016 fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee this week, which should help the DNC pay its bills to . . . her.

Clinton, you see, is insisting the Democratic Party pay her group, Onward Together, $1.65 million for access to the Hillary for America email list, voter data and software from the 2016 campaign. And that, The Intercept reports, is on top of the more than $700,000 the DNC has already paid to rent the list.

Indeed, the Republican National Committee notes (meow!) that Clinton only did this first fundraiser after the DNC stopped its payments to Onward Together because it’s basically out of cash.
