Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

More on the Alameda School District...

Update on this story, found at Focus on The Family's website. Funny how it didn't make the mainstream news.

The same day the California Supreme Court upheld Proposition 8 — the state's constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman — a school district in the state essentially decided to disregard the ruling.

The Alameda School Board voted 3-1 on Tuesday in favor of a curriculum that promotes same-sex relationships beginning in the first grade.

“This curriculum defines family as a group of people living together,” said Candi Cushman, education analyst for Focus on the Family Action. “The first-graders are introduced to a book called ‘Who’s In a Family?’ and this book shows herds of male elephants as an example of a family.

"Is this really what we want to be teaching the next generation — that there’s nothing unique about mothers and fathers and that a family is nothing more than a group of individuals?”

Parents are not allowed to opt their kids out of the program, which school officials claim falls under "anti-discrimination” provisions.

Cushman said family advocates in other states need to take note.

“Parents should be on the alert," she said, "for so-called 'anti-discrimination' or 'safe school' measures being used as an excuse to push this sort of teaching onto kids as young as 6 or 7 years old.”

Pro-family groups are considering legal action.

If I lived there, watch how fast I'd opt out, and I would dare the authorities to step in and force me to put my kids through that crap. I think God might view my actions as justifiable homicide.

If more people would just get a set of nads, this kind of crap could be stopped.

This, my dear friends, is the embodiment of "you reap what you sow."

I lived in Alameda for approximately 10 years and my husband had a business there for about 20 years. Alameda, in case you don't know, is an insular, literal ISLAND, and has a very elitest idea of itself (if you don't come from "an old Alameda family" you ain't Jack).

There are four parishes on the island that are quickly being consolidated. In the past year, one of the parishes, St. Barnabas, closed its elementary school after a valiant and heroic fight by the then parochial vicar, Fr. Tony Hererra. At GREAT personal cost, he fought to keep the school open, realizing the value of Catholic education. The people of the parish elected to pay for hot cars, flashier "stuff" and all the other trappings (they call them that for a reason) rather than a values-based education for their children because the public schools were doing such a stellar job.

Like I said, you reap what you sow. It's too bad that the children are paying the price that the parents were too selfish to pay.

And please note, that the smokescreen of this being an anti-bullying stance doesn't mention other anti-bullying arenas - what of the fat kids, weird kids, dorky kids? Apparently, if you are gay or have gay parents, it's all covered.
