I love this story. There aren’t often such clear examples of hypocrisy from the left, yet this is one such perfect example. The left is always harrangueing the country on the importance of ‘Freedom of Speech’, — as if any of us truly needed a lecture on its merits — using it to ensure they have the right to create and burn/hang effigees of President Bush; using it to ensure they have the right to burn the American Flag and to create horrible art depicting Jesus Christ and Mary drenched in feces; and using it to ensure they have the right to depict everyone who disagrees with a black man as racist. However, when the shoe is on the other foot all that hyperbole goes out the window. The left only wants the right kind of free speech. The wrong kind of free speech must be stamped out whatever the cost.
Bin Ladin was very astute when he apparently directed his terrorists to ignore Vice President Biden. Without ever attending an American school he very astutely learned what everyone else in the United States knows: The office isn’t with a bucket of warm spit.
I ran across this article today that just astounded the he’ll out of me. This observance of non-offense to anyone and everyone else on the planet (sans Christians of course) is of course political correctness run amok. And it’s destroying the very fabric of our culture and society. In this very particular case, we’re talking about a child who apparently was told by a teacher that he couldn’t display a picture of the national flag he’d drawn because it might offend someone else in the class.
I’m sorry folks, but if you find the very image of our national flag offensive, you have issues.; but you should probably move long to some other country. Perhaps Cuba.
Actually this is the dynamic in most families, yet I simply couldn’t pass up an opportunity to point out President Obama’s conservative cousin. Get em’ Dr. Wolf!
I had just commented on this story yesterday, but today the Virginia Pilot is reporting that Norfolk has now fired four Community Services Board executives and one assistant over the matter. The action, coming at the end of the Community Services Board investigation, is but the first of what will ultimately transpire as the investigative results were formally turned over to the FBI. Once you get past the umbrage of what Jill McGlone — the woman who was paid some $300,000 over 12-years while not performing any work — did, questions should start to turn to why it happened. We knew from the start she couldn’t have done this alone, and thankfully the CSB investigation answered that question, but it will fall to the FBI and the Norfolk police department to answer the other.
It’s already a cliche that government employees do little to nothing for the pay they receive, but this woman really did nothing over the past 12 years for the $300,000 salary she collected. No one seems to know how someone could have been employed for 12 years, receive a 4% annual salary increase, and still escape the notice of auditors and those in control on the purse strings. That will soon be known however, as the FBI has joined a growing list agencies, groups, and individuals looking into that very question.
