September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

September 11, 2017, 06:59:33 am Psalm 51:17 says: The law of reaping and sowing. It's amazing how God's mercy and longsuffering has hovered over America so long. (ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

Exodus 20:5  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

New York teacher in writing task asks students why Jews are evil

ALBANY, New York (Reuters) - An Albany, New York high school English teacher who asked students to imagine they were Nazis and give reasons why Jews were evil may be disciplined, a school district spokesman said on Friday.

Superintendent Marguerite Vanden Wyngaard was expected to personally apologize on Friday to families of Albany High School students who were given the writing assignment, said Ron Lesko, a spokesman for the district.

Vanden Wyngaard issued an apology in the press on Thursday night after a local newspaper reporter showed school officials the assignment, which had been published on the paper's website.

Lesko confirmed that an English teacher this week gave three classes of students a persuasive writing assignment as part of a class project to demonstrate how Nazis thought and showed their loyalty to the Third Reich before World War Two.

"We know who the teacher is and we are considering disciplinary action but don't know what it is at this time," Lesko said. "This is an ongoing priority conversation."

One-third of the students refused to complete the task, which was assigned following a class review of Nazi propaganda and directed them to imagine that their teacher was a Nazi official, Lesko confirmed.

The superintendent said the assignment was meant to be an academic exercise that was part of the district's new curriculum, which stresses argumentative writing and connects English with history. However, she said the assignment was offensive.

The one-page assignment asked the students to picture themselves back in a troubled time in history leading up to World War Two.

"You need to pretend that I am a member of the government in Nazi Germany, and you are being challenged to consider that you are loyal to the Nazis by writing an essay convincing me that Jews are evil and the source of our problems," said the assignment instructions.

Students were asked for an introduction, conclusion and a list of arguments and were advised, "Please remember your life (here in Nazi Germany in the 30s) depends on it!"

Earlier this year, teachers in Georgia and New York City got into trouble because students were asked to use numbers of slave whippings to calculate math problems.

Offensive? DUH! And they knew it was, but still allowed such garbage in the classroom. And here we have the superintendent trying to explain it away as some district curriculum, which it likely is, which makes it even worse. How can all those well-educated people with multiple degrees involved in designing what gets taught not understand how such curriculum would be received? They can't. I don't think it's possible for such to just slip past all those people involved in the process of getting curriculum in the classroom.

I believe this stuff is being done intentionally, and wickedness is at the core of it. Families need to flee the public education system.
