1) Summerfest officials cave.
Let me get this straight. It’s ok for Stevie Wonder to conduct a mini-campaign rally for Barack Obama on the stage of the Marcus Ampitheater, but a vendor on the grounds can’t have a war game because it might be offensive? Summerfest Administration: wusses.
2) Jazz singer Rene Marie (who?) was supposed to sing the national anthem at the Denver State of the City Address. There should be no confusion because there is but ONE national anthem. Instead, Marie sang the Black national anthem. Nothing wrong with the song or the lyrics. But it’s NOT the true national anthem.
From the Denver Post:
"I pulled a switcheroonie on them," Marie said later. She explained that she decided months ago to switch the lyrics because she will no longer sing the national anthem. She said that she made the decision after a Russian broadcaster interviewed her and asked her what it was like to be an American.
At that moment, she said, she realized that as an African-American she at times feels like a foreigner in her home country.
"And I was going to correct her," Marie said. "And I realized I didn't feel like an American, and that bothered me a great deal."
If that’s the case and it’s so horrible here, maybe she should join the other celebrities who have threatened to leave the good ol’ US of A (Alec Baldwin) and get the hell out. That, of course, will never happen. Liberals can never be trusted to he held to what they say.
3) Reading, Writing, Arithmetic, and union rules.
A teacher’s union remains one of the biggest farces in America. If union leadership really cared about……….THE CHILDREN…… because after all, it’s all about……..THE CHILDREN…….then they wouldn’t be going to court to fight for this nonsense.
Teacher union priorities: Padding their wallets, and electing Democrats, The kids and their classroom performance are far down the list.
