Teacher Faces Disciplinary Action For Telling His Students About Their Constitutional Rights


Robert Heinlein said: “When any government…undertakes to say to its subjects, This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know, the end result is tyranny and oppression no matter how holy the motives.”

Oppression is a daily occurrence. We are oppressed by our public schools; we are oppressed by our “scientists,” and we are oppressed by our federal government. All major industries related to the federal government have cornered the market on oppression of the people. Public schools indoctrinate our children, universities force Socialist and Marxist ideals on their students, and “scientists” don’t allow anyone into their fields who would question the status quo. It is with oppression that power is at its strongest.

According to Town Hall:

“An Illinois Social Studies teacher faces disciplinary action for reminding his students of their Fifth Amendment rights when filling out a school survey on behavior…John Dryden was collecting the surveys before class when he noticed the students’ names were printed on them. He looked to see what was being asked and noticed questions about alcohol and drug use…Dryden told his students that they had a Constitutional right to not incriminate themselves by answering questions on the survey.”

As a result of Mr. Dryden informing his students about their basic Fifth Amendment rights, he is now facing disciplinary charges. Lucky for him, numerous people have risen to his defense.

With all the government scandals bringing fresh memories into our minds of past tyranny, it is an incident like this that makes my skin crawl. Tyranny doesn’t have a grand beginning; it never does. It starts with minor incidents; slowly collecting over time, and culminating in outright oppression. Tyranny takes time to accumulate strength; like a fighter in training. When it’s ready, it will knock us out with a single blow.

First, whether or not it is within the powers of the school to bring the hammer down with disciplinary action, it is entirely absurd. Dryden did absolutely nothing wrong when he merely informed his students of their Fifth Amendment right to decline self-incrimination if they had anything they didn’t want made public.

Second, I’m not sure whether it is within the bounds of the school’s power to ask these types of questions in the first place. Without anonymous surveys being offered, any information provided in ink would be directly linked to the student who filled out the survey. This behavior is unseemly at best and dangerously invasive at worst.

With Dryden facing disciplinary action, I can only shiver at the thought of what else public schools could do with the power they believe they have. Tyranny starts in small places.

    It is so sad it has come to the place where to go against evil will get you in trouble. To teach the rights the our laws give is against the evil, corrupted governmental rule of our country, today. It will only grow worse until JESUS returns to lift HIS people out of the morass of sin that the world has become.
    1Thes.4:16-18
    16. For the LORD HIMSELF shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of GOD: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

    17. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the LORD in the air: and so shall we ever be with the LORD.
    18. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
    Things will continue to get worse: 2 Timothy 3:12-14
    12. Yea, and all that will live godly in CHRIST JESUS shall suffer persecution.
    13. But evil men and seducers whall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
    14. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of knowin of whom thou has learned them;
    15. And that from a child thou hast known the HOLY SCRIPTURES which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in CHRIST JESUS.
    16. All scripture is given by inspiration of GOD, and is profitable for doctrine for reproof, for correction,for instruction in righteousness:
    17. The the man of GOD may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

    Does anyone in your family attend church?

    • Daniel from TN

      I saw on another blogsite that school officials in one school system (I forget where at the moment) believe church attendance by children is a form of mental illness. That’s why the question is increasing on student surveys.

  • TheBrigadier

    Anyone asking those questions about drugs, guns, church, or sexuality should be fired and then sued for violating students civil rights. Students give up of rights when in school, primarily the 4th Amendment about unlawful search and seizure that is ok in school, but the 5th Amendment still applies. Good for that teacher who gave his class a living civic lesson our Administration and  the NEA should take a refresher about.

  • AndyWithers

    All of this proves the theorem that the best government is closest to the people.  Local school boards- populated by folks who can be replaced quickly- are much better groups to decide what to teach than FedGov bureaucrats or Congressmen a million miles away in DC.  Good article.  Most kids, if handed something by the Teacher to fill out, would never question the validity of something on the paper- even if they had a civics class on the 5th amendment.  They will assume the Teacher is always looking out for their best interests, and would not lie to the class.  Obama is killing lots of that “baseline American values” stuff by teaching that lying is A-OK.

    Today’s public schools are like child abuse…they screw your kid up royally, hinder all independent thought processes, teach them how to get stuff for free and don’t teach them anything they’ll need to make it in this world on their own.

  • AuntieEm

    I remember my “Americanism vs. Communism” high school class that we were required to take (or we could choose to take Civics, even better.)  Anyone older person like me remembers to this day much of what they learned in these classes, which were intended to educate us about our form of government and to remind us to be ever vigilant about abuses of big government.  Education ended and propaganda took over in its place when the globalists took over public education and the university system. Yet we accept it all meekly, as long as we can keep all the “free government cheese” coming our way…disgusting!

  • 1LTLos

    YOu gutless Sons of bi$ches — No wonder it my students are such empty-headed cowardly, illiterate and uniformed pieces of worthlessness!!!  It starts with the parents!!!  All the parents of kids at this school should be filing into the presdents/principals office in outrage that a teacher has the courage to wake their children up to facts that we taught to me in GRADE school!!!!!  In case you do not know this, were these idiots running a business they would be fired!!  But as poor fortune has it, school administrators KEEP RECEIVING TAX PAYER MONEY every semester whether they run a tight ship or a not!!!!  THey dont care so guess what?  It s time that parents wake up and demand that the principal back off from this teacher and leave them alone and demand that all instructors provide appropriate historical and political information to all students — not the black is white and up is down condoms and cucumbers education that these commie liberal teachers have bee heaping upon students for the last half century!!!!  Wake up American Parents — Turn the PTA into a forum where you all begin to control the agenda – not the other way around!!!   Am I making myself clear???  God I hope so!

    • 1LTLos

      debree When did it start?  The PRogressive Movement goes back to 1880
      Communists began wedging their way into American Life in 1919 after WW I

      • Daniel from TN

        Liberals started taking over the Democrat Party in the late fifties. The takeover finished in 1976 with the election of Jimmy Carter to the presidency. The US Dept of Education was made a separate agency during Carter’s administration, thus assuring Liberals complete control of American education in the public schools.
        Have you noticed how test scores and our ranking compared to other countries have both declined since then? This is not a coincidence. It is deliberate. Intelligence and independent thought are a direct threat to Liberalism.

        • 1LTLos

          Daniel from TN YOu are making reference to Liberalism in Education.  Democrats by the late 1950′s were Communists – not simply liberals.  As I stated the History of the Progressive movement has its start at the late 19th Century.  Commies – have the mindset that is similar to locusts – they consume everything good in their path and then move on to the next farm to consume those crops so to speak.  Communism only works while people are producing FOR THEM.  When the Commie “At the poiint of a gun” mentality kills off every productive and contributing member of  society,. communism dies out itself however, the sick commie mentality does not die out because it – the ideology – tool root here in the USA.  Even Rosa Parks was attending Communist meetings every week but I do not think she realized how grave that ideology could be.  As for Education, we see the effects of liberalism by the end of the 1960′s and the idiot Jimmy Carter ruined community based Education by creating the despicable Department of Education.  The “takeover ” as you state has not truly started and it certainly is not complete — We must make our voices heard by filing into colleges and schools who take our tax monies but purposefully churn out imbeciles (nothing personal – I have school aged kids too)  My commentary here regards the pathetic Progressive Movement in the USA.  That began as I say in 1880.  The Commie influence began post WWI in 1919 and in the 1950′s the only man to stand tough against Communism was Senator McCarthy — I nominate Senator McCARTHY for ppresident today !!!! Wish that he would have had full backing during his tenure!

        • Daniel from TN

          1. The takeover I commented about was the takeover of the Democrat Party, which did occur in 1976.. The takeover of the education system is not yet complete, but it is in progress. The biggest boost to that takeover was the establishment of the Dept of Education.
          2. According to the US Dept of Education, over 60% of todays’s high school seniors now graduate totally illiterate; so illiterate they cannot point to their own name on their diploma. You and I agree on one thing. This much illiteracy is not oversight or students “slipping through the cracks.” I believe this high an illiteracy rate can only occur by DESIGN.  I know many school teachers who believe as I do. We must remember – Literacy and independent thought are a direct threat to Liberalism, thus Liberals desire to completely control American education.
          As far as McCarthy goes; he had the right idea, but he went about it the wrong way.

          Daniel from TN The Federal board of Education needs to be replaced by the state board of Educations. One source or type of education does not fit all !

  • popham

    The schoolteacher was of course correct in his advice to the students.
    This is yet another example of our failed public school system to teach students the rudimentaries
    of our history and above all the Constitution. Indeed, if we allow even tiny bits of invasive queries
    occur in our schools, then what’s next? This is how socialism leads to communism, so we hope that
    the parents at this school stand up for their childrens’ rights and especially for the teacher, and then
    you can fire the school board.

    The liberal ‘commies’ have infiltrated all unions pretty much, the NEA teachers union has a link on the website to read Carl Marx book via .pdf format, unbelievable. I had the link it was shown to me by a friend that teaches she couldnt believe it either!
    Socialism,communism,marxism have infiltrated all very large groups and now…. they have almost filled every office and every seat in the WH and congress!

    The fifth amendment was meant to protect the criminal politicians only. It is a common misconception that it was put into place to protect the people. If anyone has any question as to the validity of my statement please review the Lois Lerner hearing.
    People are just people whereas politicians are very “special” people who in the performance of their duties are required to lie, cheat, pander, mislead and be a party to the vilest of activities. These are the people that need the constitutional protections.
    Oh wait a minute I’ve been told that they aren’t actually required to participate they do it because they can get away with it.

    The federal government has implemented a National curriculum and testing program (illegal by the way) with no civilian input. It is called Common Core State Standards. Among its one-size-fits-all features – no more local curriculum input or choice- there is a data collection component that basically creeates a k-12 dossier one every student in the public school system. 
    Please Google “common core issues” or/and “common core data mining”. We now live in a “people for the government” not “government by the people”
    for example:
    “The fact that Common Core Standards require children’s personal
    information to be provided to a database that can be expected to sell or
    share the data to unspecified companies is worrisome to many parents
    and educators. “It leads to total control and total tracking of the
    child,” said Mary Black, curriculum director for Freedom Project
    Education, an organization that provides classical K-12 online
    schooling. “It completely strips the child of his or her own privacy.”

    Schools will not only collect objective facts about students but gain
    a more intimate knowledge as well — even profiles of students’
    attitudes and predictions of their futures that could then be used by
    the schools to shape outcomes. The DOE released a http://www.cra.org/ccc/docs/learning-analytics-ed.pdf
    in October 2012 entitled “Enhancing, Teaching and Learning Through
    Educational Data Mining and Learning Analytics,” in which the following
    was stated about data mining procedures:.. ” then follows the disturbing big brother details.

    Why there are these idiots in a position of teaching, I will never know. I guess I can look back at the way Obama was, also, not vetted. Why vet a teacher. As long as they are willing to teach, let them!! These are our children that they are abusing!! There are too many of these people who need other jobs, like shining shoes or street sweepers, any thing but teaching!! Yes, the parents should usher these people out of the school and dare them to come back. If possible, take their kids out and home school them or put them in private schools. As long as Obama is in office, public schools are not a save haven for kids!!

    • BobE

    Having just jumped aboard this
    thread I see that the idiot who displays his years of education with
    a picture of some clown extending an oversized middle finger to the
    readers is infecting this thread also with his inane prepubescent
    foolishness.
      Its’ as though he is engaging in mental masturbation
    until he reaches a mature enough level to attempt the “real”
    thing.
     He is only capable of negative thought but it does get him the
    attention he craves. Not responding directly to him is most hurtful
    so if you want to see him go away simply ignore him.
     It is unfair to
    engage him in debate because he is so ill equipped to deal with
    reality. Despite his arrested development he may be old enough
    chronologically to vote and that is scary.
     He could actually be a school teacher. Now that is really scary!

I realize there has been a flood of propaganda ever since WWII from the leftists in the media and education to the contrary (which you have obviously fallen for), but that does NOT make it true! And the idea that the Communists were Hitler’s archenemies is also incorrect. It was the Communists who helped elect him Chancellor, since they knew he hated capitalism as much as they did (the enemy of my enemy is my friend). It was only afterwards – when he no longer needed them – that Hitler turned on them. Just like Obama will turn on the useful idiots like yourself after he seizes power. Don’t people like you ever learn anything from history? The tyrants ALWAYS purge their own ranks first! Ironically they will leave people like me alone because they need us to actually run what’s left of the economy. They’ll make very public examples of some, of course, in order to keep the rest in line. But we will outlast you and your ilk and eventually be victorious!

    Where does the school system get off asking intrusive personal questions on a survey that has the student’s NAME pre-printed on it. And how can they possibly expect honest answers to their dumba$$ survey under those conditions? The teacher was right, and the Illinois Department of Education is ABSOLUTELY WRONG!

  • mkimowz

    And they (the Government) are talking about making it illegal to homeschool.

    • BobE

      mkimowz It’s called child abuse when we have idiots trying to give children an education!

      • mkimowz

        BobE mkimowz Just because you or anyone you know isn’t qualified to do it doesn’t mean that no one else is capable.  Some of the teachers in these schools aren’t qualified to teach, but they’re still there. Thats what  testing is for MORON!

      • mkimowz

        BobE mkimowz Maybe we should have these incompetent teachers teaching our kids in school then.

    • Hilly2

      mkimowz No reason you can’t “UN-teach” the kids once they get home from school. A very good reason to be involved with the kids, don’t you think? Ask them every single day what they learned in school, and then straighten them out on any bad information they’ve received. They can’t be indoctrinated if we refuse to allow it.

      • fatman45

        Hilly2 mkimowz But that would require personal responsibility on the part of the parents!

      • mkimowz

        Hilly2 mkimowz Your right.  But lets just fight hard to stop it from happening.  I think that would be the best solution.  I’ve done that with one of my grandchildren.  She was shocked, but she listened.

          So, the answer is, no reliable web sites making the claim that the government is trying to make homeschooling illegal.
          My Grandchildren are all being homeschooled and their Mothers are getting a great deal of support from the schools, school boards, etc. If anything, the government is encouraging and supportive of homeschooling.
          By the way, they live in different states, it’s not like it is just one area.

        • mkimowz

          buzz13 mkimowz It was on news radio, TV, and a few papers.  I think the New York Times and one other one.  Can’t remember which one.  I just heard those as references.  They want to take everything out of the parents hands so they can indoctrinate them with their own way of making things better. Parents are just in the way as far as they are concerned.

        • mkimowz

          buzz13 mkimowz 
          They’ll be supportive until they can take control of it.  The local governments are in full support of home schooling, not the feds.  It will be country wide unless the states can refuse to implement.  Hopefully it won’t happen, but I wouldn’t put anything past the top moron.  After everything that’s happened with our government and all the lies….can you believe it?

  • Jim Bragg

    The schools have no right to ask these questions unless they are voluntary and anonymous. The schools are a bed of liberial socialism and have been for some time and have done much harm to our younger people. Now they feel empowered to be more aggressive and even openly so!

  • Stealthwarrior

    Our schools… started to be ‘contaminated’ (purposely) in the 1950′s-1970′s- the end result? Professors w/tenure ( teachers too ) who were ( like our illustrious ( small ‘p’ ) president- taught by the ‘socialist/communists’ to gain a’foothold’ as they’ve done, and start the destruction of our youth ( two full generations worth now ) and I mostly blame ( liberal women ) who chose ‘work’ and ‘luxurious living’ over Motherhood/wifedom and the silly-ass whimpy men mostly went along.. Results? You see it in stories like this, in the destruction of the family and a day & age w/no morals/ethics! All the b.s. happening today, I have BOOKS on written 40+ years ago and every damned thing that was warned about- HAS come true…

  • Graywolf12

    Train them early to follow the rules of the regime. Just slice off a little more freedom, and ability to think for yourself. Everyone needs to read the Communist Manifesto. and communist goals of 1963 as printed in the Jan 10, 1963 congressional record on pages 33  & 34.

  • WilliamVincent

    Teacher should be commended,  social engineering, and communist indoctrination needs to be halted is our school system.  The people in that school district should take note, and vote all those retards off the school board.

  • dardyl

    No one’s age is revealed in this article. I was raised in the Fifties and Sixties and feel like I got a pretty good education.  My teachers were solid and competent and had integrity and principles. No one heard about them having affairs with students or rewriting history or trying to undermine the Constitution or any of the outrageous things we hear of today. Maybe I am wrong, but I suspicion that many of these teachers who have behaved in these ways are all younger and not long out of liberal colleges. The universities and colleges need a reality check and need to weed out these people who would undermine America’s way of life. Parents should refuse to send their students to these liberal institutions and opt for the more conservative ones instead.  There is nothing like financial pressure to make people rethink their “enlightened philosophy” and perhaps change their minds about what they advocate.  I feel that Obama is waiting for everyone my age and older to die so when these things happen, tyranny will be easier to commit. I don’t mean to imply that we are the only savvy ones, but people’s memories dim and things change.  I have taught for over twenty-five years and would never allow surveys like this to go unchallenged.  It makes my blood boil to think that the Education Agencies from numerous states are trying to violate Constitutional rights and rewrite history. This is just one more area where liberalism has run amok because of the atmosphere fostered by Obama. We need to clamp down HARD AND HARSHLY on things like this and wipe out every aspect of liberalism, Communism, Socialism, and Islam who seek to destroy us and our Constitution.  Educators AND parents should constantly monitor any and all materials students are exposed to to ensure the integrity of those materials.

      You may be on to something, same here, I graduated in 1971, we were the rebellious ones!  We questioned everything, kids nowdays do not question anything and neither do their parents. It is so scarey to see a 35 and 40 yr old woman who takes things as said, does not question, not even her Dr. They just take what is given. I still question and ask.

    • Breed

      dardyl
      You are so right in what you perceive
      as nothing more than an all out assault on the core values of this
      country by what is essentially a intentionally misinformed teaching
      staff in many of our schools today.
      Their teaching careers are launched
      from a platform based on political correctness and a preconceived
      notion that being proud to be an American is akin to the type of
      nationalistic fervor that birthed the Nazi party, much like the
      attitude that attacks all things Christian due to the baseless fear
      that a prayer in school or a symbol in the desert will somehow result
      in a theocracy.
      If we don’t start treating islam for
      what it really is, a geog-political movement, we just might end up a
      theocratic state and it wont be pleasant.
      Nazism, socialism, communism and isalm
      are all similar but with different leaders.
      The uneducated like to make a big
      issue out of the fact that Hitler hated and persecuted communists
      which is true. What they fail to realize is that as leader of the
      National Socialist Party he could not tolerate competition from
      communist socialists and as he attacked the communists they were the
      party of choice for many German Jews who were also being persecuted.
      Because of their hatred for all things
      Nazi many Jews who came to this country prior to WWII remained
      communists after arriving here.
      It’s also a well established fact that
      muslims were aligned with the Germans in WWI and WWII and had Germany
      won either war muslims would have then turned on them in their own
      quest for world domination.
      That quest continues today as nearly
      every conflict across the globe now involves muslims.
      Just a
      coincidence? I think not!
      The only “fly in the ointment” is
      China who one day, strange as it may seem now, might just end up
      being the one and only friend the United States has.

      I guess you did not read that MANY people came to his defense. They are standing behind them.  This is the Common Core teaching that is invading our schools, Obama’s baby brought on by Bill Ayers. Parents have no idea what is being asked of their kids because most of the work is not brought home. Books are not home because the work is done online at school. It is the kids talking that parents need to listen to. Ask your kids how their days were. Get involved in your schools and become aware of what is being taught. Many teachers do not like the teachings and cannot open their mouths. Bravo for this teacher for standing for what is right and letting the kids know these type of questions do not have to be answered. This is still America.

  • ThomRaasio

    Whoever brought this teacher up to be disciplined, should be named, confronted, fired, charged with an overt act of TREASON in actively trying to overthrow the U.S. Constitution by actively denying another U.S. Citizen their RIGHTS under the 5th Amendment.
    Then pull that PERSON into court for trial and if found guilty by a jury, ask for the DEATH PENALTY (settle for 15 years in prison without possibility of parole.
    Do that between 2 and 6 times across America, and you’ll see these STUPID SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS change their tune.

  • MichaelSSmith

  • BobE

    You make a big deal out of one teacher when the real problem in our education system is that we have Red States (who else) that are actually trying to get religion taught as science! As if the people there aren’t already stupid enough!

    • Big_K

      BobE  We already DO have a religion taught as science, it’s called evolution.  That’s why we now have so many people in this country who act like the animals they’ve been told they are!

        BobE
         It’s comes as no surprise to me that imbeciles like you do not understand the difference between science & religion (but the supreme court does) I’ll try to explain it to you in the simplest way I know how in the hopes you may be able to understand. Science uncovers questions that may never be answered.Religion is based on answers that may never
        be questioned. Can you comprehend the difference?

        • Big_K

          BobE Big_K  Really?  The word science means – Knowledge gained through observation and experimentation, or study.  That IS the formal definition of the word science.  But when have you ever observed millions of years of anything?  When have you observed the evolution of a star?  When have you observed life evolve from non-life?  When have you observed a dog evolve into a horse or a monkey evolve into a man?  
          You see when I grew up BobE, when a princess kissed a frog and it turned into a prince, that was referred to as a fairy tale.  But now days we’re told when a frog evolves into a prince it’s called “science”.  Sorry BobE, I still call that a fairy tale.

        • BobE

          Big_K BobE  Science is open for ANYONE to prove it wrong. All you got to do is bring your evidence to do so. Religion on the other hand cannot be questioned because of a
          built-in defense system: anything that questions a belief, no matter how
          logical the argument is, is the work of Satan by the very fact that it makes
          you question a belief. What do you think would happen if you went through the bible with the same scrutiny you use to try and debunk science?

        • Big_K

          BobE Big_K  I am not debunking science, I am debunking evolution.  Stop using the terms as if they are one in the same because they are not.  Evolution is predominantly based on faith, just like creation.

      • SilasDoGood

        • BobE

          SilasDoGood Big_K BobE  You simply are to stupid to understand evolution (which comes as no surprise) however if you think you can prove evolution wrong it’s open for you to do so & a Nobel prize awaits anybody that can.

        • Lsfein

          BobE SilasDoGood Big_K 
          The issue at issue, I think is that both science and religion are taken “on faith” when they are taught at the very simplistic levels required when giving instruction to young children.  However, it does need to be said here that, in fact, many of Religion’s truths can be proven through experimentation–if one is willing to undergo the experiment, BobE.  It must also be said, that for the most part, the scientific community does not give the public access to its labs and data, and we are asked to “simply believe” in the “truths” that the high priests in the white lab coats tell us.
          While evolution has been reportedly witnessed as occurring on a microscopic level–it has also been reported by chemists and physicists alike that what happens in a microscopic level cannot be translated to a multi-cellular level with any degree of certainty.  Molecules and even cells may evolve, but that has no implications for multi-system organisms, to say nothing of specie-to-specie transformation.

        • Big_K

          Lsfein BobE SilasDoGood Big_KCompletely agree with you.  This is what I refer to as micro-evolution.  But a better way of describing it would be variation, or variation within the kind.  That is exactly what we can observe.  
          But the type of evolution that BobE believes in, which I call macro-evolution,  cannot be observed.  Not to mention all the other forms of evolution that have never been observed either, such as cosmic, stellar, chemical and organic.

        • HenryFlynn

          Big_K Lsfein BobE SilasDoGood I must warn you, in the future, when I see BobE, I keep on going. For me, he is out of the picture. I stand on my original comment.

          , both micro and macro, have been directly observed. So to
          deny evolution is to deny a direct observation. It’s the equivalent of denying

           Big_K science is NOT taken of faith! scientists do not BELIEVE in evolution. they ACCEPT it because
          of the enormous pile of data supporting it. Just like they accept that gravity
          follows an inverse square law, matter is composed of atoms, germs cause
          disease, and moving electrons constitute electricity. Scientific theories are
          not a faith. You can test them yourself and falsify them. Do you have faith
          your computer runs on electrons or do you accept it

        • DanielEvans

          BobE SilasDoGood Big_K  Bob.. prove there is no God. You posit evolution as truth when in reality you have no idea whether Mankind even originated on this planet. Evolutionary science is conjecture built on notion, built on racism (See the theories founder). Evolution was put forward as theory, then enforced by only observations and ideas supporting that theory.  You have no documented evolutionary leaps in the 6,000 years of recorded history. Adaptation? Variation? Yes. Yet, some of the greatest scientists in the world have it right – ‘the more we learn, the more you come to realize that random evolution is not possible. There is engineering in everything’.  At some point in the future, we will learn to ‘create’ a human. We will learn the secret for engineering life. When that day comes, science will prove the existence of God – of a creator. Religion is not about adherence to some global ‘truth’, it is the belief in something bigger. That we have purpose. That we are not an accident. You choose to believe you come from evolutionary miracles never proven. It’s a belief. And belief is religion. And for the record, your grammar is ridiculous for someone scolding others on their stupidity.

          “An adaptation in biology is a trait with a current functional role in the life history of an organism that is maintained and evolved by means of natural selection”.
          “variation /var·i·a·tion/ (var″e-a´shun) the act or process of changing; in genetics,

          Do you even understand the difference between macro and micro, because they are not the same thing?

Granted, there are certain circumstances that abortion might be warranted BUT that should be extremely rare. Not a normal form of birth control.

What has science gotten us.  Rich pill pushers in the medical and pharmaceutical fields, and a bunch of sick and disabled people on welfare. If all this crap is so good for us, why are these diseases running rampant. Scientists don’t treat the cause, they just cover up the symptoms.  That’s why I have more faith in something I can’t see, than a bunch of money hungry over over educated idiots without the use of common sense that everyone can see thru.

          Religion is not ideas, religion is rules and law… Teaching religion is teaching laws to abide by for social and self obedience to procure a honest truthful and faithful community and individual.
          If we all had Christianity, there would be no need for jails, or police, or governments. The latter three are set into place to protect faithful devout Christians from people of your likes… You always think there has to be an answer a formula, a theorem with a definite answer to  the equation, when there really only is Divine Sublimation.

          And yes BobE, you’re correct, there is no missing link,  THE WHOLE DAMN CHAIN IS MISSING!!!  The nonsense you see in basic science books showing the evolution of man from an ape is just that, PURE NONSENSE, completely dreamed up by someone who was attempting to BRAINWASH you BobE!  But no such thing has ever been observed.

          And if Charlie were alive today I would like to ask him one thing, who are the favored races?  Hitler certainly believed in one.  And he nearly eradicated another, which he deemed unfavorable.  Perhaps we now know why there is still so much racism in society today.

      The requirement for homeschooling parents in most states is a high school diploma, or a GED and a few hours of college. The instruction is usually presented by DVD.
      FYI – Homeschooled children have the highest ACT/SAT scores and receive the highest rate of academic scholarships. They don’t need remedial classes before starting college, are more likely to finish college, and usually receive promotions/advancements quicker than others.

    At some point, if ever, BobE will have to decide on his own that he wants to delve into the matter of religion to see what that is all about and decide for himself whether or not it is for him.  People like him can’t be talked to with any civility or logic because he isn’t listening, he is too busy thinking about what he is going to say to WOW us. That is okay. There are people like him who have evolved and right in the middle of the evolution, he got stuck and can go no further.  Our mistake in America has been letting people like Bob have their way just to shut them up. We have suffered for this and must take back our wish to have faith present as a guiding beacon for us.  We ARE a Christian nation and must remain so.  We must be defenders of God and our Constitution. We must stand fast against the powers that would destroy these in America. I, myself, have never figured out what the objection was to being treated in a Christian manner. We believe in not murdering, not bearing false witness( our politicians could take a lesson), not coveting, not lying, not stealing, honoring our parents, etc. Who would not like to be treated like this, and wouldn’t America be better if people knew that they would be treated like this and didn’t fear being suckered? especially by their own government?  Of course all people who profess to be Christian do not observe these principles, but not all other people do either!!!  If everyone DID try to live by these principles what a better place this would be!! Anyway, so much for Bob.  I’m done with him.

      We (The United States of America) are not now, nor have we ever been a Christian Nation. Our forefathers went to extreme measures to ensure that “we” would be a Secular Nation and not a Theocracy!

    • BobE

      dardyl
      1st of all the USA is not, has never been & never will be a Christian nation & it’s absurd to suggest that
      Christians have “suffered” in this country. It is however indicative of the mindset of Christians that in order to sustain the delusions of their faith they have to adopt the politics of victimhood. I do not care what you believe in my only problem is when you try to force your beliefs upon us that don’t share your beliefs. Abortion, gay marriage, stem cell research & a host of other issues. These values you speak of (not murdering, not bearing false witness, not lying, not stealing, honoring our parents, etc) predate Christianity.  Christians have for the last 1700 years tried to
      violently force, with every means possible, their bizarre beliefs upon everyone
      else!

    buzz13, Of course we are not Christian by law, but we were founded on Judeo/Christian principles.  That has been so present in our society that it is laughable to try to deny it. Our government buildings in Washington are covered in Christian adornments and our customs are filled with prayer and observances of Christian rites. Of course the standards were known to the world long before the Bible was written because history for the Bible was being written.  Abraham had to live by these customs before his life could be chronicled. Eventually, the whole Bible was written by the inspired word from God.  This took thousands of years!  Our Founding Fathers did not want us to be a Theocracy so they did not make Christianity a law, but, they did believe in God and emphasized those principles in writings and displays of the religion and many times by example. It certainly isn’t Islam, Hindu, Buddhism, etc.  I never claimed we have ‘suffered’ as Bob said, nor have I excused our behavior over the past. I even said that we TRY to embrace those principles and, of course, we fall short many times because we are not perfect, but neither are you. I did say wouldn’t it be great if everyone tried to treat others in these ways. And I believe it would and those are God’s principles.

    • buzz13

      dardyl
      You make the mistake of believing that civilization and society began 6000 years ago. Our Earth, and Human beings, as a species, are much older than that. Abraham did not live from the very beginning of Human societies, cultures and primitive governments. These entities and other religious beliefs existed for a very long time prior to any “Judeo/Christian” society. Morals are not the exclusive right of Christians, and never have been. Atheist can be as moral or more so that any Christian. Morals are inherient in being a thinking, logical human being, not what your religion might or might not be.

I only used Abraham as an example.  It could have been Jesus, Noah, Moses, etc.  They had to live before they could be written about. AND I never said morality was only ours. That is absurd. I did say we all fall short in behaving in the way that we should. (Including you and Bob) EVERYONE. However, I did say that in the Bible those things are explicitly spelled out and it would be great if everyone embraced them. I would rather have a Christian who believed in these things by my side than a Islamist who believes it is okay to cut my head off!

          DavidGSimmons di from Oregon Marine Patriot My friend, you can’t possibly imagine that the Constitution was formed outside of biblical principles.  The Founders were very spiritual men and the influence of Christianity on their lives could not possibly have been ignored in their writing of our founding documents.  Consider just a few: 
          “The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.” – John Adams
          “Let us enter on this important business (Bill of Rights) under the idea that we are Christians on whom the eyes of the world are now turned… [L]et us earnestly call and beseech Him, for Christ’s sake, to preside in our councils. . . . We can only depend on the all powerful influence of the Spirit of God, Whose Divine aid and assistance it becomes us as a Christian people most devoutly to implore. Therefore I move that some minister of the Gospel be requested to attend this Congress every morning . . . in order to open the meeting with prayer.” – Elias Boudinot (A FRAMER OF THE BILL OF RIGHTS)
          “I am a Christian in the only sense in which He wished anyone to be: sincerely attached to His doctrines in preference to all others.” – Thomas Jefferson
          “I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ.” – Thomas Jefferson

No one is saying YOUR God, who is also EVERYONE’S God (He does not belong to you alone.) is nonsence. NO ONE is calling God nonsence.

They Created it in six days, last of all they created man, in their own image. How they must regret that!!! If you build a house out of 100% if GOD given materials you would say, I am sure that it belonged to you, and nobody had any rights to it, for anything. This is GOD’S world and there is no way you can take Him or HIS SON out of it, you cannot exclude them and get away with it. People have been trying that for thousands of years and they have not succeeded, yet, nor will they. The human race has gotten so evil in these attempts that HIS SON will come soon and remove all of HIS people and then HE will do away with the entire universe.

      11. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversations and godliness.
      12. Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of  GOD, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat.
      13. Nevertheless we, according to HIS PROMISE, look for a new heaven and  new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness.
      Revelation 21:1-5
      1. And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
      2. And I JOHN saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down fro GOD out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
      3. And I heard  a great voice out of heaven saying, behold, the tabernacle of GOD is with men, and they shall be HIS people, and GOD himself shall be with them and be their GOD.
      4. And GOD whall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there  any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
      5. And HE that sat upon the throne said Behold, I make all things new. And HE said unto me, Write, for these words are true and faithful

      Think abot these things when you have the urge to push GOD and HIS SON out, it won’t work!!

  • PaulBrown1

    What kind of country has this become when you are going against the law for reminding someone of their civil rights, where does it say in the constitution that if you tell anyone of these rights, you are violating the law. Whenn you are arrested for doing something wrong, the Police Officer informs you of your right to remain silent, in other words….keep your mouth shut. So I guess the question is, is the Police Officer violating the law for telling you of your rights?  Should he be fired too?  What ever happened to the real America and our human rights, freedom of choice, our basic freedoms have been taken away, a little each time we vote for the wrong person, and this time america, you made one hell of a mistake to install a muslim in OUR country to tells us what to do. This muslim moron could care less about our God given rights and our freedoms, because where he comes from they didn’t have any rights, so he is going to bring OUR country down to his level of destruction.

    • DavidGSimmons

      PaulBrown1 You do realize that a) President Obama is a christian b) his religion, or even a lack thereof, has no bearing on his fitness for the presidency as there is not only no religious test to be elected, there is specifically a law *against* using religious tests for qualifications for office. Your obvious bigotry against muslims aside, President Obama was born and raised in America by an American single mother and her American parents (one of whom was a decorated WWII veteran, I might add) so all your shouting about “where he comes from” is laughable. 
      Furthermore, the 5th amendment applies in a court, or when arrested. It does not apply to surveys given to schoolchildren. The Supreme Court has also ruled that schoolchildren, while at school, do not enjoy the same 4th amendment protections as you and I do.

      • HenryFlynn

        DavidGSimmons PaulBrown1 David, I don’t know where you get your “facts” from. I have solid evidence that Obama was born in Kenya. Part of which, comes from his grandmother’s mouth.

I haven’t believed that from the first day, and he is NOT a christian, he said himself he is a Muslim and on a you tube video that has now been taken down, he said that he was a citizen of the country of his birth….Kenya, and he also said he was NOT a christian, but a muslim.
        If you think for one moment that we believe those lies you tell, then you are just as crazy as that moronic pig thief and murderer. As far as the elections go, he never won anything in that either, he paid so many people off and they lied and they fixed the machines, and they let people vote 2 and 3 times for this obvious pig muslim. There are many people since then has gone to jail because of fixing the elections for him, and as with Benghazi, he left the hanging out to dry on thier own as well. Thats what he does real well. This is all from a moron who once said that Islam is a ” Pretty Religion”, well if he thinks that killing americans is pretty and the beheadings are nice, then that kind of moronic muslim pig we don’t need in this country giving away our secrets and secrets of other countries. He is a traitor to Amreica, which he and the mooch has said as well that they hated this country. Thats what you want running this country? Not MY BELOVED country you idiot.  When I joined our military years ago, I took an oath to uphold the constitution of the USA and to protect her against all threats forgien and domestic, and that still stands to this day with all veterans with any brains.

        DavidGSimmons PaulBrown1 Obama has referred to his “Muslim faith” and he has never been able to prove to America that he is a Natural Born Citizen. Both those facts make him a fraud and an impostor. Also he was raised by his Mother’s (Stanley Ann Dunham’s) parents, who were both hard-core Communists, and very open about expressing it. The “Dream from his Father,” that Obama professed shaped his agenda, primarily focused on making the USA “pay” for the sin of slavery. This is not the kind of man we should have leading our country. In fact, Obama is very bad for America. And I fear we may not survive as a republic because of it. Good instructors like John Dryden SHOULD be teaching their students about their rights! These rights are being eroded away at a fast pace because of Leftist forces in our government today… including the Whitehouse!

      • Evermyrtle

        DavidGSimmons PaulBrown1 Do you hve any idea what a Christin is. It is not someone who says “I am a Christin”, it is those who live according to HIS commandments.
        John 14:15, 21
        15.  If ye love me keep my commandments
        21. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my FATHER and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
        In the last foru years I cannot even begin to list the anti-GOD laws that have been made legal. Who signed them into law. What about legalizing the abominations to GOD homosexual legality and beast/man sex laws int practice. 

        Exodus 20:13 Thou shall not kill, yet this so called Christian promotes millions of murder while hesays if we can save a child………..
        Obama a Christian the greatest atrocity, yet int civilization!!! If there is such a thing as complete evil Obama is completely evil. I believe he is one of Satan’s trinity. Is it the false prophet, the beast or the Devil himself????

  • EduardodeC

    It is inconceivable that research conducted on minor children stoops to unethical principles.  Several research guidelines were violated:  Did researchers obtained informed consent from parents or guardians? Was a privacy statement provided as required by federal law? Did this research protect minors from privacy and was it conducted under guidelines of the Belmont Report?  These questions and other questions related to research conducted when dealing with minors need to be addressed.  The teacher informing the students of their Constitutional rights did not violate any school guidelines, but assured the students that their rights under the Constitution are not relinquished when they enter the school.  The school board should be reprimanded, suspended and the teacher should be immediately reinstated.  This behavior by school officials is deplorable and shameful.  The survey instrument telling the respondents (minor students) to state their names when controversial questions are being asked violates their rights and protections under IRB regulations.

What gave you the idea that the working class that Obama is always appealing to is actually going to be protected? We must protect our wonderful masters, uh, sorry, I meant public servants, from those they are supposed to serve.

      stargazer711This is another clear case of the need for organized parental intervention.

      school administrator should be reprimanded for allowing such an inquisition to
      be forced on unsuspecting children.
      If the
      school adminsitrator initiated the described invasion of family privacy, (s)he should
      be terminated as administrator, and placed as teacher in another school under the
      supervision of an administrator who understands and honors the rights of
      parents.  If the person is not qualified as a teacher, the option to upgrade might be offered.  “Might” be offered.

But it takes parents to be involved in the process. So parents don’t assume that because your children go to school every day, they are learning the right thing. Get involved !

    OK, now I go to church. I believe in God and the Bible. I have a question. What in the Sam Hill dose all this have to do with the teacher in IL possibly losing his job over the 5th Admendent? Please folks. Get back on track!

    • Toniw

      skelnav88 The civil liberties protected by the American Bill of Rights originated from God and the Bible and nowhere else.  It has always been the church of Jesus Christ that has championed these ideals and spread the ideas to others.  Historically,  the church recognized that without these unalienable rights,  tyrants would rob people  not only civil liberties but also of  religious liberties.  Once civil liberties are gone,  religious liberties are gone as well, and governments will blaspheme God by going against His authority and trying to compete with Him for supreme authority.  Thus,  even the idea behind  the American Revolution was “disobedience to tyrants is obedience to God.”

  • captainjimgreen

    I am a university professor and I teach my students about their rights all the time, as I should. If my administration ever told me to cease and desist, I’d tell them to take a flying leap and sue them if they tried to fire me. It won’t happen here, fortunately. But it’s sad to see a school board like this one in Illinois that is so clueless and oppressive. They are what is ailing America! Perhaps we should throw IL out of the USA! It appears they don’t “get” anything out there! And their un-American, un-Constitutional, un-Patriotic, idiotic actions have unfortunately carried over to the derelict Usurper-in-Chief in the Whitehouse… who is from Illinois.

    • ConnieStanson

      captainjimgreen  There was a History teacher on Glenn Beck who got fired for teaching how Great our Presidents were and how great Capitalism is. Another teacher, I believe he was from Chicago who quite because they wanted him to teach “Common Core” and I know for a fact that Professors in the University of Michigan are teaching Socialism in classes. My friend quite there and went on to another University, I can’t remember where though. But Thank You for sticking to your guns (so to speak). I agree with Everything you said too.

    Tonight I attended my grandson’s graduation from the 8th grade! Yeah! It was opened and closed with a prayer. Yeah! I saw men remove their hats and children shushed and everyone fall silent as one of the class members led the prayer. It was so humbling and comforting. There were board members, parents, teachers, retired teachers, students, administration and many community members there.  It was a good thing.

    • ConnieStanson

  • v steve

    In order to keep our Constitution we have to do away with the Federal Department of Education. The Federal Department of Education is brain washing our children in Socialist thinking. Socialist thinking is opposite of Constitutional Republic thinking. The Federal Department of Education is having our children taught socialism, teaching our children not to think like Constitutional Republic Patriots. Socialism is the dumbing down of a society and the destruction of human will. The Federal Department of Education has to be abolished at all cost.

    • DavidGSimmons

      v steve That’s quite possibly the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. I suspect you have no idea what socialism actually is, but you like to use the word a lot. Just as you like to use the word patriot to justify your anti-American BS. I can see how you hate the Department of Education, as clearly public education failed in your case.

      • 1LTLos

        So what word do you use to justify your anti-American BS?  Usurper?
        ineligible?  Clearly incompetent? (okay two words) Marxist? 
        Narcissist?  The worst thing to ever happen to our nations highest
        office?  The trend of marxists is to attempt to intellectualize every
        discussion and thereby to commandeer all discourse.  I understand what
        steve is setting out to state in his post and it is ludicrous that some
        one like yourself would find it necessary to criticize someone who just
        may have posted his thoughts quickly and off the top of his head — Most
        of us here understand the intent –  Public education may have failed
        you as well so far as your social skills are concerned — Seems to me
        you simply like to flap at the mouth and from the keyboard.  I will
        await your insipid retort because I am certain you love the “last word”
        too.

      • captainjimgreen

        DavidGSimmons v steve No, David, you are actually wrong in your opinion and Steve is precisely correct. Socialism is alive and well and is gripping almost every aspect of our lives at an alarming rate. I have lived under Democracy, Socialism, Communism, and even a Dictatorship. Believe me, I know the difference! And our once great republic is falling fast to the failed Socialist policies of the Leftist, Progressive, Marxist, evil Democrats… promoted by their infiltrated Public Education system!

    • ConnieStanson

      v steve This is very well written. Thanks for this post.

  • MyronJPoltroonian

    Even that Holiest of Holy’s in the Democrat Pantheon, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, was against public sector unions – federal, state and local. Some commenter’s here have said, “Fire the school board”. Good luck, for almost all school boards are elected positions and almost every Damn one of the members elected are heavily supported by the teachers unions, if not already a current or former member themselves. It’s a rigged game, pure and simple. Hell, look at what has and still is happening to grassroots organizations who formed because they love this country, love the Constitutional principles it was founded on and/or just plain feel they’ve been “Taxed Enough Already”. The Long and Strong Arm of the Law sets itself loose on them in the form of the Internal Revenue Service [they consider themselves to be in Law Enforcement] to thwart their newly acquired influence in politics by threatening, harassing and intimidating them. And they [the IRS] is being lead by their director who also just happens to be their union chief. Who also, by the way, seems to have a very cozy relationship with the oval office. If not, his averaging a visit to the white house once every 3½ days must be being spent playing one Hell of a lot of basket ball or golfing – besides rolling Easter eggs with his kids, that is.

  • cellis44

    This is absolutely the most asinine thing I have ever heard.  Teachers are in place to TEACH!  What better way to do this than through regular, every day things that the students face in every aspect of their lives.  Good for Mr. John Dryden!!  He is a true teacher in every sense of the word!!!  A true HERO for our chidren!!

  • dardyl

    David G Simmons, The federals need to get out of the school business and let the states run their own business.  The feds are ruining us on many levels and education is one of them.  At the state level the bureaucracy  is reduced by 75% and makes it more local. Issues can be controlled more through elections and local board elections more easily.  The less federal government the better.  If you like the feds telling you what to do at every turn, move to D.C. and rub elbows with them every day. Take your orders and tell them you are enlightened like them and be their flunky.  You will be much more fulfilled.  Just because someone disagrees with you doesn’t mean he is uneducated.  Wanting less government is not anti-American, but in keeping with the founding father’s original purpose of having little government. Unlike you who seems to love big government, I am capable of making my own decisions, spending my own money (if the government lets me keep it) and taking care of myself.  Why would you champion an institution that so obviously attacks our Constitution? I would like to see not only the Education Department abolished but also the EPA and Homeland Security. They are all farces and work against our best interest. I also wouldn’t mind seeing us leave the UN.  If that makes me dumb, then I guess it just makes me dumb. Please don’t feel I am “unenlightened” and fail to see the ramifications of what I propose.  I see them all too clearly and I can’t think what a breath of fresh air it would be.  Name one Christian thing Obama has done without political motives.  Was it the church he attended before he was President?  How Christian was that anyway? He is so transparent it is pitiful.I can’t believe a grown man could be so suckered.

    • captainjimgreen

      dardyl You are exactly right in your thinking. Too bad more Americans can’t see what is happening. The federal government is totally out of control and they are paving the way for the complete destruction of our republic. If nothing radical is done soon to stem the tide of Marxism’s success in the USA under Obama’s inept and evil leadership our country is doomed!

  • Joy J

    Our school systems have been corrupted just as our government (that controls the schools) is.  Our school systems have become agenda driven just as our political systems have.  Is it any wonder that so many people are home schooling their children??  I don’t trust that teachers aren’t going to indoctrinate our children instead of teach our children.

    • captainjimgreen

      Joy J I agree totally. There should be NO public education at all. It should only be done through the private sector as it was intended and done for thousands of years. Even though I am a professor at a state university now, I spent 33 years first in the business world… and I teach what needs to be taught, not what some bureaucrat thinks should be taught. We also home-schooled out two Sons for part of the time that they were not in private schools. They have done remarkably well… both physician/surgeons and one also has a law degree. So I know what works best… and it is NOT public education. Our republic is being destroyed by it, in fact. Public education is a vital part of the Communist Manifesto, it is a disaster, and it should be abolished!

      • 1LTLos

        captainjimgreen Joy J Absolutely correct!  IT is not easy being a devoted Professor and teach today in the current world of academe. My career path is similar in that I too spent many years in the private business sectors prior to my teaching at the University and Collegiate levels – I was tenured in 1997 but learned that the Communist Manifesto targets all the best of cultural areas to infiltrate – The Environmentalist area was fine in 1960-1970 but one year after Earth Day environmentalists all became Communists, the world of music which supposed to calm and nurture is destroyed by crap rap, the Art world filled with purposefully UGLY art that will not nurture nor heal the soul, the Military and of course Education.  And we sit around typing and griping – We must turn from the TV and the computer and angrily march upon DC and the front yard of the white house –

There is no turning back when people become so wicked and dependent. Romney would have helped get us moving in the direction of recovery— morally and fiscally. But now we’re doomed.

      GVJaneAz Praying does not require a public forum. People can pray in their homes, in their churches, and meetings. Of course, the more that are praying, the more God listens. Where two or more pray together, He promises action. There are several scriptures to back that up, if we are praying for God’s will to be done. Try to be aware of the people you are associated with. If they are not the sort that are God fearing or should I say God loving, I would shy away from them. People, generally, know how their friends think. God can make things happen in ways that we would never even think about, but He knows what he is doing!!

      MichaelSSmith You’ve got to be kidding!! Barry Soetoro (aka Obama or whatever name he uses) will go down in history as the worst president we ever had, by far. He is single-handedly destroying America. He has perpetrated numerous impeachable offenses so far and a doosy of a treasonous act in Benghazi… for which he should not only be impeached but prosecuted as a traitor. He likely won’t make it through his entire 2nd term, thankfully. And may end up in prison, where he belongs.

Why don’t you go crawl back to your muslim islamic pig friends, maybe someday if your a good boy they might let you behead the next real american,  you jerk!!!!!!!

    The other day I read something by someone who goes by Joeblk and he said, ” Lady Liberty has been chopped off at the knees and the American Eagle { our symbol of freedom} is on life support, our nation is in a huge huge mess. We no longer have control of the government, it has control of us.
    I thought to myself, this is so true of what has been going on in this country, that has been ridden with scandel after acandel, all because of this communist muslim lying pig. Who in my eyes is a murderer for leaving our men to DIE in Benghazi. He could have given the order to senf our seals in to cover them, but instead he gave the order to stand down to the Navy Seals. That is out and out murder in my book, he did not cover his people who he sent into a dangerous area. As a Commander in chief you are supposed to cover your people at all times, he didn’t cover them even once.
