The massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary  School in  Newtown, Connecticut could have been stopped if the school principal and the school psychologist had been armed as they attempted to  stop the shooter.  Instead they were both murdered leaving the way open for the mass murder of children and two more adults.  All teachers, school staff and school administrators should be allowed to carry guns to prevent crazed individuals from harming others.  Gun control only controls law abiding people.  Criminals do not obey the law.

Remember the story entitled THE LITTLE RED HEN ? If you have never read this children's tale, you can now Google it. This should be the required reading for every school aged child ( and even their parents. ) Maybe the college professors should be required to read it every day until they understand the meaning of honest work and the benefits deserved from such work. When Jamestown was established on the New Land... eventually to become America.... if you didn't work, you didn't eat.... A very young child wants to do for themselves... standing up, walking, feeding themselves...... after they become independent , they must learn to be dependent and demanding. People control is the goal of those who would be dictators and that is achieved by making the people dependent on the government. Allow the people to be independent and the would-be dictators lose their control of the people.

    You are correct.....  don't know why the  " unlike " message came up ,  Sometimes the truth comes out in jest along with the satire.  Congress did take this seriously in 2009... enough to pass the MOVE ACT to make it more convenient for the military to vote.  Unfortunately, like with all government programs , just because there is a law does not preclude it will work.

       Instead of giving your opinion, call up your county Board of Elections and ask 1) how many absentee military ballots were sent out   2) how many absentee military ballots were received in time to be counted. 

    I called last week and was told 119 absentee military ballots had been sent out and 63 absentee military ballots were received in time to be counted.  In 2008, it was estimated that only 30% of the military ballots were counted for the election.  That is why in 2009 Congress passed the MOVE ACT which established that all Board of Elections had to send out absentee military ballots at least 45 days before the election and offices to assist American troops and their families in voting were to be established on every military establishment all over the world.  When the Pentagon's Inspector General check to see if this was done, very few offices had been set up.

     A member of the VFW told me that when he was in the active service, the military had no interest in getting the troops to vote.  Since Congress passed the MOVE ACT in 2009, perhaps members of Congress would be interested in knowing the results of their efforts.  Tell them anyway, just to keep them informed.

This site just gets the message out to the public. Check out Congressman Roscoe Bartlett ( MD-06 )  who with 30 other colleagues requested ex-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to move and pass H.R.5673 THE MILITARY VOTING PROTECTION ACT OF 2008 to to ensure overseas military had the opportunity to successfully vote in the 2008 election.  Although an identical bill had already been approved the week before by the Senate, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat majority refused to move the bill to the floor and vote on it.

   According to Congressman Phil Gingrey ( GA-11)  " In the last election cycle, 992,000 of our servicemen and women requested absentee ballots , yet only 330,000 were counted on election day. ... "

    It should not matter how the evidence gets out to the public.  What matters is that this problem occurs. Call up your local Board of Elections and ask about the absentee ballots for the military  By law, absentee ballots must be sent out 45 days before the election.  What we have to do is to make sure that these ballots are counted.  Call your state elected representatives, state secretary of state and governor of the state and demand that these military votes be counted.Elections are run by the state,not the federal government. The state secretary of state certifies the ballot , not the federal government.

     For those who questioned the Duffle Blog website as to what it was did not get an answer about if military ballots were not being counted or were arriving to the boards of election too late to be counted. Quite often comedy is used to present a problem to the public with the hope that those who hear it will further  investigate the issue.

  For those people who resorted to ridicule of the writers or foul language, this does not prove your point at all.  Bullying tactics are not the way to win a debate.

     Rational is to understand.... Those who claim that they are rational have a big problem with the truth.  They stoop to the low level of hurling insults at other people who have different opinions and never present factual evidence to support their opinion. Ignorace is not knowing the truth.  Stupidity is knowing the truth but ignoring it... and the definition for insanity is doing the same thing the same way over and over again and expecting a different outcome. For the last 60 years or more the education of Americans attending the public schools has been intent on dumbing down the students until now even some high school graduates have to take remedial reading and remedial arithmetic entering college.  Instead of teaching reading, writing and arithmetic the schools are promoting  " social justice "....   Social justice never built a bridge that didn't fall down.... If you must under go surgery, you better pray that the medical staff  woking on you knows more than  social justice. American students now rank 32ND in the world against other nations.  We used to be # ONE... How sad that the American education system is producing people who believe that lying and cheating should be the acceptable way of life.

    Having taught high school for 26  years.... 24 years teaching high school science in grades 7 - 12.... I demanded that my students produce quality work.  I graded all written homework completely  including corrections for spelling, grammar and arithmetic  when necessary... Today anything is acceptable and so the student is not given the correct answer or the correct way of expressing his or her ideas.

   Just remember..... once a liar, always a liar....

Sometimes the truth is said in jest.... The Congress enacted Move in 2008 after it came to light that , in fact, the military voting was surpressed.  That is why all Boards of Election in all 50 states of these United States are required by this law to get the ballots out to the military at least 45 days before the election.

 Do you want the bumper sticker that proclaims    I DON'T BELIEVE THE LIBERAL PRESS  ....  If you believe Chris Mathews ,you really need to be educated.  Read about Gobbels and Saul Alinsky and all the others who used the  '" news media " to hide the truth from the public. Ignorance is bliss....is the mantra.  But the proper statement is :

    Ignorance is not knowing the truth

    Stupidity is knowing the truth but ignoring it

    Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result

 Ask a Navy Seal if this is true.... I just viewed the site  AmericiPac Alerts where the Seals want to know what is Obama hiding?  Why are  the Benghazi tapes not being released ? These Seals also say that the military vote is not being counted . Check with the Veterans for a Strong America.... Another site which might be of interest is  whateverhappenedtocommonsense.com      the commentator really speaks his mind about Obama and it does make common sense.

Why wouldn't you believe this ?  Do you believe Obama, Biden, Hillary, Susan Rice and the rest of the Obama administration about the murder of four Americans in Bendghazi, Libya ?  Do believe what Obama says that he killed Osama bin Laden ? Do you believe that General Motors was saved ? ( You better keep up with the financial news because GM is slated to go bankrupt again.....) If only one vote of a military person was not counted, that is one vote too many.  It has been in the news for several months that Obama intended to violate the voting rights of the military  so why do you not believe that he did ? He didn't say it, so he didn't lie about it.  But when the order to  " Stand Down" was given, Gen Ham was relieved of command so that no help was given to the four Americans who had repeatedly requested increased security at the American consulate in Libya since April only the Commander-in-Chief could give that order.... and he went to bed during the real time video coverage of the terrorist attack on the consulate which went on for 7 hours.  He went to bed so he could fly out on Air Force One to attend a campaign in Las Vegas.  And you think that denying the military the right to vote is not true ? An immediate investigation should be started and in the mean time every governor should issue an executive order to allow extra time for those ballots to be located and to be brought to the designated election boards and counted for the election of November 6, 2012. CONTACT YOUR STATE AND FEDERAL REPRESENTATIVES AND DEMAND THAT THE MILITARY VOTE BE COUNTED FOR THIS ELECTION.... NOVEMBER 6, 2012.

   !988 - Joe Biden suffered 2 brain aneurysms which had to be operated on.  After the operation he suffered a blood clot which ended up in his lungs.  After over 6 months absence, he returned to the Senate.  Check this out on Joe Biden's biography..... could this be a reason for his bizarre statements and behavior ?

 Ron.... your assignment is to carefully read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States.  This great nation was founded on the principles of a republician democracy with limited powers of the separate three branches of our government. 

    The person who is elected as president is also the commander-in-chief of the military.  I suggest you acquaint yourself with the liars in the White House who abandoned Americans to be murdered at the hands of terrorists in Libya.  Obama went to bed so he could get up the next day and campaign in Las Vegas while the events at the American consulate went on  in real time  for seven hours. Any persons who could do that are dispicable, disgusting and sub-human. Four Americans were murdered because the commander-in-chief was too intent on saving his own hide and getting off to campaign. Wake up and start thinking like an American who is concerned about the lives of others. Once a liar always a liar.  Over the last four years ,Obama has changed his talk more often than he has changed his socks. If he has nothing to hide, why has he locked up all records pertaining to him ?

       The first day of every school year ---- and I taught 26 years of high school -- every class was told :

 " I will not tolerate lying and I will not tolerate cheating.  Everything else is open for discussion "  Obama is one of the biggest liars and cheats I have ever had the misfortune to learn about. And the biggest misfortune is that he became the president of the United States.  Vote for Mitt Romney this November 6.... Vote for America.

  Comcast owns 51% of NBC and GE owns 49%,  Comcast is a spin-off from the old AT&T which was split up by a judge's decree in 1984.  Buy 2 shares of each corporation and you become a STOCKHOLDER and get annual reports every year and the opportunity to vote on the directors.  You also get to see what the corporation is doing.  As a stockholoder, you can also voice your opinion directly to the " big boys ".  Comcast also pays a dividend quarterly which is much higher than what the banks are paying if you are lucky to have a bank account. Another four years of Obama and we will be lucky to have America.

  What about teaching reading, writing and arithmetic ?  There are only a limited number of hours in the school day and sex education will not teach the pupil how to get a job, balance their check book or read a contract.  American schools are producing high school graduates who have to take remedial reading and remedial arithmetic in college.  American students rank 32ND in math against the rest of the world.  Public schools have been dumbing down students for the last 60 years.  I taught high school science for 24 years....  my 7TH graders had to memorize the Periodic Table of the Elements, draw the Bohr Model of the atoms and balance chemical equations.  My 9TH graders had to wire electrical circuits and study the Laws of Physics.  My 10TH graders studied biology and were taught the plant kingdom , the animal kingdom and did experiments using the microscope to study life in pond water and cell structure of plant material.  They even did blood typing.  My Ecology class studied how to keep the classroom above 62 degrees ( remember the oil embargo when Jimmy Carter told every school to lower the heat ? )  The Ecology class did a project using different insulating materials over the windows to prove that the heat was going out the window glass --  the classroom stayed at 72 degrees ! The class wrote a book about their experiment, produced a video of the project and then made a presentation to the NYS Assembly and Senate Committees on Energy.  The next year a different Ecology class studied the production of methane which included a class trip to a working methane producer who had et up two huge digestors ( using cow and horse excretment ).  The class wrote a book including a survey of area farms and the racetrack, produced a video and again testified to the NYS Assembly and Senate commitees on Agriculture and Energy. 

     The taxpayers are funding the schools.  The least the schools can do is educate the children in the materials which will enable these students to get a good job and become a good provider and a benefit to society.  There are more important things in life  than to focus on their body parts.
