The Blaze has the story behind this video that’s gone viral, which mocks Michelle Obama’s new school lunch mandate. http://youtu.be/2IB7NDUSBOo
This story is personal for my family.
In previous years, I would give my children a snack when they came in from school, but this year, from the very first day they came in starving! At first I thought it may be due to earlier lunch schedules than previously, or something of that nature. However, as we talked to the kids about their lunch, it hit me that Michelle Antoinette Obama’s mandates are now in effect. I now have to give my kids lunch when they get home. They still eat their dinner, with no problem at all. It’s obvious they are not being fed enough at school. However, there are those that do not think Michelle has gone far enough in her mandates, and have petitioned the USDA to ban milk from school lunches.
Now that I know my kids are not the only ones who are hungry, I think it’s time I start sending them to school with a lunch box… loaded with LOTS of cookies on the side!
According to an article posted Wednesday at Freedom Eden, an unidentified 78-year-old bus driver in New Berlin, Wisconsin, told a 12-year-old boy he should have been aborted because of a Romney sign in his yard. On Wednesday, the Durham School Services issued a statement saying the driver has been fired.
According to the post at Freedom Eden, radio talk show host Mark Belling read a letter from the boy's mother that detailed the alleged abuse.
Apparently, the yard sign bothered the bus driver so much that she began making rude comments to the boy.
"When the driver engaged the 12-year-old boy in a political conservation, he responded by saying that Obama is pro-abortion," Freedom Eden said.
"Maybe your mom should have chosen abortion for you," the driver allegedly said.
One dollar and eighty-seven cents. That was all. And sixty cents of it was in pennies. Pennies saved one and two at a time by bulldozing the grocer and the vegetable man and the butcher until one's cheeks burned with the silent imputation of parsimony that such close dealing implied. Three times Della counted it. One dollar and eighty- seven cents. And the next day would be Christmas.
There was clearly nothing to do but flop down on the shabby little couch and howl. So Della did it. Which instigates the moral reflection that life is made up of sobs, sniffles, and smiles, with sniffles predominating.
While the mistress of the home is gradually subsiding from the first stage to the second, take a look at the home. A furnished flat at $8 per week. It did not exactly beggar description, but it certainly had that word on the lookout for the mendicancy squad.
In the vestibule below was a letter-box into which no letter would go, and an electric button from which no mortal finger could coax a ring. Also appertaining thereunto was a card bearing the name "Mr. James Dillingham Young."
The "Dillingham" had been flung to the breeze during a former period of prosperity when its possessor was being paid $30 per week. Now, when the income was shrunk to $20, though, they were thinking seriously of contracting to a modest and unassuming D. But whenever Mr. James Dillingham Young came home and reached his flat above he was called "Jim" and greatly hugged by Mrs. James Dillingham Young, already introduced to you as Della. Which is all very good.
Everybody's stocking up on those entertaining Buckyballs before a ban against them enters into force. But they're far from the first beloved product to earn the wrath of the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and through grace gave us eternal comfort and good hope, comfort your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word. (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17)
I read about a Sunday School teacher who asked her class to draw a picture of the Holy Family for Christmas. One little boy turned in a picture of a mother, father, and a baby in an airplane with a pilot. "Who do you have there?" asked the teacher. "That's Mary, Joseph, the baby Jesus," answered the little boy, "and that's Pontius the Pilot."
And after reading this story, I wandered if Pontius the Pilot was going to intentionally wreck the plane, since he was the one who sentenced Jesus to death.
Even in Jesus' death, we are reminded that Jesus is our savior who brings us light and hope.
Father of Jesus, thank you for the hope you give me through the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Give me the courage to help those who have no or little hope. Amen........`
A U.S. official has identified to Fox News the member of the Navy SEAL Team Six -- the same special ops group used for the raid on Usama bin Laden's compound -- that was killed during a weekend rescue mission in Afghanistan that freed an American doctor abducted by the Taliban outside of Kabul five days ago.
Petty Officer 1st Class Nicolas D. Checque, 28, of Monroeville, Pa., died of combat related injuries suffered Dec. 8, while supporting operations near Kabul, Afghanistan. Checque was stationed in Virginia Beach where he was assigned to a Naval Special Warfare unit.
A Christian can be crushed gazing at the picture of Mary standing at the foot of the cross, watching her beloved son suffocate, and die. But in that vision she stands there for hours, patiently enduring her suffering. For two millennia, she has been a role model for Christians, a woman who practiced obedience in the most difficult of human circumstances, with fervent hope for what this sacrifice will offer all mankind as it struggles with sin.
This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted “artists” practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin Mary to strip her of every virtue: her patience, her obedience, her courageous love, and her prayerful faith in God. On November 13, Simon & Schuster launched a vicious little 96-page novella titled “The Testament of Mary.”
The author, an Irish ex-Catholic named Colm Toibin, presents us instead with a Bible-burning “reimagination” of an alienated Mary that fled the scene of her son’s death in fear for her own life. Two decades after the Resurrection – or was there one? – this anti-Mary is filled with bitterness and rage. She describes herself as “unhinged” and bubbling with contempt for her son’s demented followers, to the extreme that she threatens the Gospel writers with a knife. She lives as a bandit, stealing to survive.
Her son’s followers must be stopped from making Jesus a god, “or else everything that happened will become a sweet story that will grow poisonous as bright berries that hang low on trees.” Toibin describes the scene of the crucifixion in mercenary terms: “It was like a marketplace, but more intense somehow, the act that was about to take place was going to make a profit for both seller and buyer.”
Christ’s disciples are “fools, twitchers, malcontents, stammerers,” while her son’s preaching sounded to her “false, and his tone all stilted, and I could not bear to hear him, it was like something grinding and it set my teeth on edge.” There is no God i
