One of Arizona’s oldest public charter schools is under fire from the Americans United for Separation of Church and State for using textbooks that actively promote religious interpretations of American history.
According to the group, Heritage Academy uses two books by controversial anti-communist author Cleon Skousen — The 5,000 Year Leap and The Making of America — that “push ‘Christian nation’ propaganda and other religious teachings on impressionable, young students,” according to Alex Luchenitser, the associate legal director for Americans United.
one of my favorite jokes of all time
Remember that time the U.S. shot down an Iranian civilian airliner over Iranian airspace, killing all 290 on board, including 66 children, and then refused to apologize for doing it?
"I will never apologize for the United States. I don’t care what the facts are. I’m not an apologize-for-America kind of guy." — Vice President (and then-presidential candidate) George H.W. Bush, commenting on the downed airliner, 8/2/1988
That quote makes me sick.
"Call 1-800-steemer. Stanley Steemer gets carpets cleaner!"

Comment: doaa23985 said “Israel is now targeting journalists in the #Gaza Strip in an attempt to silence the truth coming out of Gaza. Today, IDF announced that no journalists are allowed in or out of the Gaza strip until further notice. Yesterday, the #Israeli army fired warning shots into the AlJazeera office, ordering them to evacuate. It has bombed previously a car that had a clear PRESS sign on it, killing a journalist. Israeli snipers have also killed a journalist trying to cover the #Shaja’ia massacre. Watch in this video how an Israeli missile targets the Watania media building, and the moments of horror experienced by the journalists. | #GAZA #GazaUnderAttack #PrayForGaza #PrayForPalestine #IsraeliTerrorism #Israel #SolidarityWithGaza #share_Israelis_Crimes #stopfundingisrael #EndTheOccupation #gazaovermedia #GazaGenocide #BBCTruth4Gaza #CNN #BBC #USA #SaveGaza #HumanRights #Zionist #BoycottIsrael #boycott #UnitedNations #UN #UK #humanity #Palestine”
