Massachusetts Schools Notorious for Anti-Christian Bias, Now Teaching Islam

Islam in School 500x200Millions of students in public schools don’t understand fractions or pronouns at even a basic level but students in the oceanfront Boston suburb of Revere, Mass. are taking the time to learn all about Islam — in the most embarrassingly shallow and cheerleading way imaginable.

Part of the textbook prints the Muslim Call to Prayer, according to Boston NBC affiliate WHDH.

“I bear witness that there is no God but Allah,” it says.

The textbook portion also reverently celebrates Muhammad’s life.

One local parent, Anthony Giannino, is upset about the textbook’s treatment of the Muslim religion.

“We don’t believe in Allah. I don’t believe in my son learning about this here,” Giannino added. “If my son was from another country and came here, he would have been catered to.”

IRS Interprets Law to Allow Them to Seize Your Money, Whether You’ve Committed a Crime or Not

IRS 500x200

Imagine being informed that the Internal Revenue Service has seized your bank account. They don’t accuse you of any crime, they simply acted because your account, used for your small business, has too much money in that was deposited in increments of less than $10,000 – the amount that requires the transaction to be reported to the IRS.

That may sound absurd, but it’s happening across the country.

The Times reports:

Using a law designed to catch drug traffickers, racketeers and terrorists by tracking their cash, the government has gone after run-of-the-mill business owners and wage earners without so much as an allegation that they have committed serious crimes. The government can take the money without ever filing a criminal complaint, and the owners are left to prove they are innocent. Many give up.

Depositing money specifically to evade the $10,000 threshold for scrutiny is illegal, but the IRS grants itself “discretion” when it comes to small and cash-only businesses where no criminal activity is alleged or suspected.

But the IRS is not alone in exercising this power. Law enforcement agencies are incentivized to search for transactions, illegal or not, that could qualify for seizure by the fact that any agency that triggers such seizures gets to keep a portion of the money forfeited.

As Minimum-Effort Dimwits Demand $15 Minimum Wage, McDonald’s Announces Automation Plans

McMoron + McWageHike = McRobots + McUnemployed

McMoron + McWageHike = McRobots + McUnemployed

The “Fight for $15” movement to increase the hourly pay of fast food workers to $15 per hour has gained a lot of momentum in the past year. Led by unions, who seek to expand into the fast food industry, and progressive activist groups, there have been protests nationwide demanding fast food chains raise the starting pay of employees to more than double the minimum wage. That fight may be on the verge of backfiring.

Conservatives have long warned that raising the minimum wage would harm businesses, cost low-skilled workers jobs and lead to automation to replace many of them. Unions and progressives, on the other hand, swore fast food chains could easily afford the inflated labor cost without much of a price increase.

Now comes word that McDonalds’, the largest player in the fast food industry, revenues are down significantly. A 5 percent decline in quarterly revenues led to a 30 percent decline in profits. A doubling of labor costs would only exacerbate this and lead to massive layoffs.

The Wall Street Journal reports, “The McDonald’s earnings report on Tuesday gave a hint at how the fast-food chain really plans to respond to its wage and profit pressure—automate.”

Further, the Journals says:

By the third quarter of next year, McDonald’s plans to introduce new technology in some markets “to make it easier for customers to order and pay for food digitally and to give people the ability to customize their orders,” reports the Journal. Mr. Thompson, the CEO, said Tuesday that customers “want to personalize their meals” and “to enjoy eating in a contemporary, inviting atmosphere. And they want choices in how they order, choices in what they order and how they’re served.”

Democrats Push for Censorship of Political Blogs, Videos and Sundry Internet Postings

censorship internet 500x200As the media prepared to vacate newsrooms for the weekend, Democrats snuck in a last minute proposal that the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) be allowed to heavily regulate political content on internet sites such as Youtube, blogs, and the Drudge Report.

Obama FEC Vice Chairperson Ann M. Ravel announced late on Friday that the FEC was preparing new regulations to give itself control over videos, Internet-based political campaigns, and other content on the web. She insisted that, “A reexamination of the commission’s approach to the internet and other emerging technologies is long overdue.”

At issue was a case considered by the FEC – the chief campaign-finance regulator – in September involving a group that ran pro-coal videos critical of Democrats in 2012. The group initially was accused of failing to report the cost of the videos and of failing to include the routine “disclaimers.”

But the group maintained that since they were only run on YouTube, they were exempt.

The case ended in a split, 3-3 decision at the FEC and was dismissed. But the vote itself aired a striking divide: despite a decision clearing the organization by the general counsel, Democrats voted to pursue an investigation anyway while Republicans voted to drop it.

Ravel was blunt in her written statement Friday explaining her side’s vote. She scolded Republicans for arguing rules that would apply to TV ads should not apply to web videos.

Until now, videos and other political content that is not posted for a fee are unregulated by the FEC. Only paid advertising is regulated under election rules. It is this that the Democrats want to change.

“FEC Chairman Lee E. Goodman, a Republican, said if regulation extends that far, then anybody who writes a political blog, runs a politically active news site, or even a chat room could be regulated,” the Washington Examiner reported on October 24.

“Evil” Koch Brothers Donate Millions to Help Poor…Liberals Furious

The infamous Koch Brothers, so insidiously evil they give millions to poor people

The infamous Koch Brothers, so insidiously evil they give millions to poor people

The dastardly duo of Charles and David Koch are at it again. What kind of evil shenanigans are the freedom-loving billionaire philanthropists pulling now? Brew yourself an organic tea, progressives, and prepare to be outraged.

Koch Industries has given a “major grant” to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers to improve the effectiveness of public defenders and to provide scholarships and training for lawyers that can represent poor people charged with crimes like the kind of petty drug offenses that the Kochs have long tried to decriminalize.

Charles Koch said the grant was intended “to make the Sixth Amendment’s guarantee of an individual’s right to counsel a reality for all Americans, especially those who are the most disadvantaged in our society.”
