GOP candidate for SC schools chief wants to teach ‘scientific theory of intelligent design’

1

A Republican who hopes to become the top education official in South Carolina says that children should be taught a form of creationism in school.

, one of eight Republican candidates for superintendent of education, said Tuesday in a GOP primary debate that she opposed the Next Generation Science Standards and believed that intelligent design should be taught alongside the theory of evolution.

“In regard to the evolution issue, I have to say that that is one of the problems with our education system today, and it is one of the problems that has been brought to light through the problems with the Common Core standards,” she remarked. “Children are not receiving an objective education.”

“There is plenty of science and research behind the theory of intelligent design, and yet it is not allowed in the classroom,” Few added. There is no reason why the scientific theory of intelligent design should not be taught in the classroom alongside the theory of evolution, and that way children would receive an objective education and they could also — for Christian children — could point to their God though the theory of intelligent design. Children need to have an objective education.”

Republican Senator Lindsay Graham Calls Pres. Obama a ‘Scumbag’

~

On The Mike Gallagher Show, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham had this to say about Pres. Obama and his administration regarding their manufactured ‘benghazi-Benghazi-BENGHAZI!!!’ scandal:

“Our Democratic friends, for the most part, have been in the tank over ‘benghazi-Benghazi-BENGHAZI’!!!.

They think it’s to get me reelected. Some guy said this about me yesterday on the left: The only reason I cared about this was because I have six tea party opponents. Well, if that’s true, I’m the biggest scumbag in America. I don’t think that’s true, I know it’s not true. It would be almost impossible for Lindsey Graham, given who I am and what I’ve been doing for the last 20 years, not to care about those in harm’s way, who get killed, and not go on to hold the administration accountable that lied about it.

The scumbags are the people in the White House who lied about this.”

Let’s be real.

This indirect attack on President Obama, who is certainly the main “scumbag” in the White House as Sen. Graham alluded, is coldly calculated and boldly executed.

Sen. Graham should be ashamed for disrespecting Pres. Obama and his Administration in such a tasteless manner.

personal thought:

I’m sure you remember the time a Democratic Senator referred to the scumbags in President Reagan’s administration after the killing of 241 American servicemen resulting from the bombing of the Beirut barracks, right?

That’s right, didn’t happen.

Sochi Mayor Says There Are No Gay People In His City

Via: Huffington Post

The mayor of Sochi is under the impression that there are no gay people in his city.

Anatoly Pakhomov spoke with the BBC ahead of the 2014 Winter Olympics and discussed how gay people would be treated in the Russian region with the country’s “homosexual propaganda” law in place. Pakhomov said gays are welcome at the Games in spite of this, so long as they “respect the laws of the Russian Federation and [don’t] impose their habits on others.”

He claimed gay people do not have to hide their sexuality in Sochi.

“No, we just say that it is your business, it’s your life. But it’s not accepted here in the Caucasus where we live. We do not have them in our city,” (See Photo) he said.

He later admitted that he isn’t absolutely certain there are no gay people in Sochi. “I am not sure, but I don’t bloody know them.”

There’s NO question Mayor Pakhomov will do well in the South Carolina GOP primary.

“We won’t be the last political party to overplay our hand. It might happen one day on the Democratic side.

And if it did, would Republicans, for the good of the country, kinda give a little?

We really did go too far. We screwed up.

But their response is making things worse, not better.”

Senatorette Miss Lindsey Graham (R-SC) still deciding between Rhett and Ashley.

What response?

“It’s a GOOD THING 800,000 can now go back to work, and we didn’t default.”

Yeah, that’s terrible!

Bubbles and Bella

Via: Huffington Post

Bubbles, a 9,000-pound elephant, and Bella, the Labrador retriever, are the very best of friends. They live together at the Myrtle Beach Safari in South Carolina. And luckily, the park has documented some of the pair’s adorable interspecies playdates.

Sometimes, Bubbles and Bella go for walks together. Other times, they go for long swims. At all times, we are completely enthralled by the two of them.

Bubbles was adopted by the safari in 1983, according to the video above. Then, in 2007, a contractor hired to build Bubbles a swimming pool abandoned puppy Bella at the park’s preserve. And so, a beautiful friendship was born.

In a more perfect world, everyone would have a dog, AND an elephant.

Dog Finds A Tiny Kitten, Risks Everything To Save Her

Via: Good Stuff Happened Today

Anderson, South Carolina

Animal control officer Michelle Smith got a call about a yelping dog behind a Home Depot. She climbed down a steep embankment to find a shih tzu, tangled in a mess of briars. But she looked more closely, she realized Goldie had a friend: a tiny kitten who was nursing at the dog’s side.

“I didn’t know what to think,” Smith told Fox News 10. “I was shocked and surprised and then of course, awww.”

 “I think it would have been OK for the dog to walk down the hill,” Smith told Fox Carolina. “But it just didn’t want to leave the kitten”

The dog and kitten were taken to the Anderson County P.A.W.S. shelter, where they remained inseparable and the dog continued to care for the kitten as one of her own. Eventually, the pair were taken to a foster home — together, of course.

Senator Lindsey ‘Lohan’ Graham (R-SC) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: Dependable Renegade

“In World War II, the mentality of the public was that our whole way of life was at risk, we’re all in. We censored the mail. When you wrote a letter overseas, it got censored. When a letter was written back from the battlefield to home, they looked at what was in the letter to make sure they were not tipping off the enemy,” Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told reporters on Capitol Hill. “If I thought censoring the mail was necessary, I would suggest it, but I don’t think it is.”

What is especially galling to me is that Miss Lindsey allegedly went to law school, where he SHOULD have learned about this little thing called the Constitution. And yeah, as a member (and I use that term for its alternate definition) of the United States Congress, he took an oath to uphold this little thing called the Constitution.

But, as his savior and lord Jesus Christ George W. Bush, once said:

“The Constitution is just a piece of paper.”  “If you don’t have anything to hide…”
