So we just learned that we paid for government workers to go to a seminar to
learn how to say “I’m sorry”.
One of the first things you learn in public
relations courses…many jobs in high tech sales, is that when people/customers
are screaming at you, one of the best tactics to calm the situation, is to
It appears our government is gearing up to handle
a lot of angry people.
I’m sorry, you’re too old for a
I’m sorry, we have to withhold your tax return because you
didn’t pay your insurance premium
I’m sorry,your opinions on your blog
are too radical and may jeopardize social order, so we had to shut you
I’m sorry, but there are too many white people in this position so
we had to hire a dark skinned person
I’m sorry….this is crazy!
Via Washington Times:
A South Carolina valedictorian garnered wild applause after he ripped up his pre-approved speech and delivered the Lord’s prayer at his high school graduation on Saturday.
The act was apparently in protest of the Pickens County School District’s decision to no longer include prayer at graduation ceremonies, Christian News reported. Officials said the decision was made after the district was barraged with complaints by atheist groups.
But that didn’t stop Roy Costner IV of Liberty High School. He ripped up his graduation speech for all to see, before he started talking about his Christian upbringing, Christian News reported.
“Those that we look up to, they have helped carve and mold us into the young adults that we are today,” he said. “I’m so glad that both of my parents led me to the Lord at a young age.”
“And I think most of you will understand when I say…” he paused. “Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name…”
The auditorium began to erupt with applause and cheers.
“Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil,” he continued. “For Thine is the Kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.”
Pickens County School District spokesman John Eby said that no disciplinary action will be taken against Mr. Costner.
Read the background AFTER YOU DRY YOUR EYES:
Amid the daily grind of politics and scandals, we should all take a few moments to say a prayer for our fellow Americans who have had their lives disrupted by the devastating stroms that hit Texas last week, and Oklahoma this week.
“The Marine Corp Manual, which is the bible for all soldiers serving, specifically states that a soldier’s uniform dress code does not allow the carrying of an umbrella and ‘no officer or official shall issue instructions which conflict with, alter, or amend any provision without the approval of the Commandant of the Marine Corps.’”
“Indeed, male Marines are informed never to carry an umbrella from the earliest phases of training.”
On a side note: Sarah Palin praises the President for “finally calling in the Marines” even if it was just to keep him dry!
“glad you finally called in the Marines… shame it was just to hold your umbrella.”
From the Boston Herald’s Michael Graham:
The protesters at the Worcester funeral home are right: Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s body doesn’t belong there. He should be buried among his own people, back in the land he called home and among the people whose values he shared.
That’s why I say, “Send him back to Cambridge!”
As I write, a good Samaritan in Worcester is trying to find a burial plot for the dead Boston bomber, and I hope he has succeeded. Sorry, my talk radio friends, but when I hear that a terrorist is taking a dirt nap, I don’t protest, I celebrate.
I have no interest in the juvenile “wrap him in bacon and drop him in a shark tank” posturing. Let’s leave the desecration of corpses to the Islamist barbarians.
We’re civilized Americans. We gave proper burials to Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy and one day — if the Obama administration ever stops playing politics with his case — we will do so for Khalid Sheik Mohammed. We can do the same for this son of Cambridge.
Besides, his Uncle Ruslan Tsarni is right: “He grew up here and for the last 10 years he decided to be in Cambridge … his home country is Cambridge, Massachusetts.”
Cambridge is where Tamerlan Tsarnaev attended mosque. Cambridge is where he attended high school — a school where liberal teachers enthusiastically push the notion of evil American imperialism.
One Family’s tribute to the youngest Victim of the Boston Marathon bombing
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas high school principal who barred a member of the Air Force from escorting his sister to prom has apologized to him in an attempt to quell a firestorm that’s been fueled by a YouTube video of the debacle and the girl’s heartfelt letter to the newspaper.
A policy change allowing exceptions to the age limitation will be presented at Monday’s upcoming school board meeting, Deputy Superintendent Paul Larkin said Tuesday. Current policy in the district located in the southwest Kansas community of Liberal prohibits anyone 21 years old or older from participating in prom activities.
The video that went viral showed Liberal High School junior Courtney Widener arriving at the April 20 prom with her 22-year-old brother, Senior Airman Casey Widener. He stopped and stood at attention at the foot of the red carpet while Courtney and another girl continued unescorted across the promenade. As she went inside, Casey crisply saluted her before turning and leaving amid applause from onlookers.
