“Gender Neutral” Passports Reduce “Mother” and “Father” to Equivalent of “Thing One” and “Thing Two”

2011 January 17

This popular post was first published on January 10, 2011.

Rainbows, the word gay, and the color pink; these are just a few of the things that militant homosexual activists have stolen from the mainstream culture and remade in their own image. Militant homosexual activists have just won another major battle in the culture war and this one is truly shocking.

U.S. passport applications filed this year will no longer identify parents as “Mother” and “Father” but as “Parent One” and “Parent Two.” With the stoke of a pen, the State Department has degraded marriage and parenthood to the level of Dr. Seuss’ “Thing One” and “Thing Two”.

Left Turns Up the Heat on “Huckleberry Finn” to Fahrenheit 451

2011 January 9

This popular post was first published on January 6, 2011.

Classic literature, one would think, is something that should be immune to the changing fads and morals of the world. Once a story has been published, it should be exempt from further editing and tinkering. Sadly, this is not the case. In the course of my experience as a parent and former teacher, I have been continually shocked to find “revised” versions disguised as the original, classic work.

Revisionist editors and book publishers have created a new market by tailoring classics to reflect the moral relativism of our times. Many of the great novels that most of us read, or were assigned to read but didn’t, have been altered and passed off as the “classics” kids now study in school. The general plot or body of the work is still there, but the soul is gone. If something is offensive, especially to a minority or special interest group– take it out.  The latest victim of this practice is Mark Twain’s masterpiece The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

In a move that would have made George Orwell’s  fictional “Ministry of Information” proud and put the Fahrenheit 451 firemen to work, New South Books is releasing a “revised” version of Mark Twain’s classic tale The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. The neutered edition will replace the “N” word with slave, “injun” with Indian, and “half-breed” with half blood. Apparently, today’s children can listen to rappers say the “N” word and play video games that promote offensive racial stereotypes, but reading a novel that deals with race issues in a meaningful, contextual way is too potentially harmful.

NPR’s Nina Totenberg Gets Coal in Her Stocking For Naughty Christmas Expression

2010 December 23

The War on Christmas has become a new American  tradition. From “Seasons Greetings” to “Holiday Trees,” examples of Christmasaphobia have become so absurd that they resemble SNL satire more than any justifiable offense.

When exactly did the word Christmas shrink from nine letters down to four? This year has proven to be no exception. National Public Radio’s host, Nina Totenberg, wins the award for most ridiculous Christmasaphobic comment of the year. Nina gets coal in her stocking for being so naughty as to suggest that the expression “Christmas party” is something that requires a prefaced apology. read more…

Stop the Omnibus! I Want to Get Off! Dems Push for Another 1.1 Trillion Dollars in Spending

2010 December 15

It’s Christmas time again. People across the country are starting to celebrate the birth of the Savior with parties and plenty of food and drink. Most of us will probably spend more on presents than we should and indulge in too many Christmas goodies. We will likely resolve to cut our spending and lose the extra pounds come January. While many in the U.S. Senate may not care much for the birth of the Savior bit, they sure do know how to party and have proven to be the Jedi-masters of overindulgence. Democrats have “crafted” a 1,924 page omnibus spending bill that comes with a whopping 1.1 trillion dollar price tag. read more…

“Mom-In-Chief” Gives Uncle Sam the Keys to School Kitchens

2010 December 13

Forget the war on drugs and Nancy Reagan’s battle cry of “Just say no.” There’s a new First Lady in town and a new drug that is even more insidious than crack. The Federal government is at the disposal of America’s “Mom-in-Chief” Michelle Obama, and she’s coming for your sugar bowl. She has taken up arms in the fight against fat kids, aka childhood obesity, and there is going to be hell to pay. Apparently, America’s parents can’t even be trusted to feed our own children. Never fear, you incompetent plebes, Hillary Clinton’s government village will save you. New Federal laws are on their way to save us from our addictions to sugar and freedom.  read more…

Lord of the Flies- America’s Place in the Worldwide Socialist Uprising

2010 December 10

I remember the first time that I read the novel Lord of the Flies. It gave me the same sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach as Orwell’s masterpiece 1984. I recall having a feeling of relief come over me as I turned the final pages on these great works. Finally, I was set free from the ugly worlds created by these novelists. I could return to my American life, where freedom was a birthright and scenarios of power run amok were unthinkable. I remember comforting myself with the thought- “That  could never happen here.” read more…

“Lame Duck” Session More Evil Than Lame, More Foul than Fowl

2010 December 2

Now that the Thanksgiving turkey has been reduced to a memory or a few dried pieces in the back of the fridge, we are able to feast on a new fowl (or foul) the Lame Duck. The so called “Lame Duck Session” is a great example of Orwellian new-speak. A lame duck conjures up images of a broken, feeble animal that has been rendered helpless and nonthreatening. The Lame Duck Session in America’s Congress has proven to be anything but harmless. Since its inception, the Lame Duck Session has proven to be one of the most dangerous times for America.

Hear No Evil? See No Evil? Could WikiLeak be an Inside Job?

2010 November 29

WikiLeaks, the controversial website started by “Chinese dissidents” and run by Australian journalist, Jullian Assange, has been caught reading America’s diary again.

This violation of America’s top secret information seems more like a a tsunami than a mere “leak”- wiki or not. I can’t help but have an “I see dead people” kind of sixth sense on this issue; something isn’t right with this story. The thought that a low level army private could gain access to epic amounts of damning classified information is a bit to Barney Fife to be believed. How can we, or anyone else, trust or take seriously a government that can’t keep a secret?

Top 10 Kid’s Movies With Hidden Conservative Messages

2010 November 29

Here we are at the beginning of the Holiday “season.” All parents know that these breaks bring with them pleas from children for some extra time in front of what my priest refers to as “the magic lantern” and my husband calls “the devil box.” There is truth in each of these labels, but most Moms call it “an hour and a half of peace and quiet to get a few things done.”

Yes, I am speaking of the television. While it can be argued that watching TV is an inferior way to spend time, it does play a role in the lives of most — OK,  pretty much all — families. I would argue that not all TV viewing is the same. Movies, because of the absence of commercials, are far superior to anything that you can find channel surfing. Commercial free-PBS is not much better. While it does not show many product commercials, it is often worse than network or cable television due to the obnoxious amount of politically correct messages and indoctrination into the leftist agenda by puppets and cartoon characters. Movies, if they are any good, have the ability to hold a child’s uninterrupted attention and convey a message in tact.

So, what children watch does make a difference. For example, does anyone want their daughters learning teen morality from Hannah Montana or her evil twin Miley Cyrus? Since we will sit our kids in front of the TV at some point, I  have compiled a list of the top ten kid’s movies with hidden conservative messages.
