Even though veteran journalist Katie Couric has been publicly exposed for deceptively editing footage of her interview with a pro-gun group to make them appear unintelligent, she remains unrepentant and proud of her work. Perhaps it’s time she lose her job from Yahoo! News. [Read more…]

These high school students from Ohio really can restore your faith in our nation’s next generation. When the atheists at the Freedom From Religion Foundation did what they always do – send legally dubious threat letters to school districts pretending that the Constitution prohibits what is actually very constitutional behavior- the administration at East Liverpool High School backed down.
The seven decades-long practice of East Liverpool High School’s choir singing the Lord’s Prayer at graduation was going to come to an end because the school district didn’t want to fight a legal battle.
This is how the FFRF wins – they lie, they intimidate, and they get people to back down.
But even though the school board backed down, the students did not.
A local news affiliate has more:
It’s a 70-year-old tradition at East Liverpool High School — singing the Lord’s Prayer at graduation.
This year, the school was forced to remove the song from its program, WTOV reports, but the graduating class refused to say goodbye to the tradition.
WTOV reports that Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation told school administrators they should stop the choir from singing the Lord’s Prayer at graduation ceremonies.
The school removed the song rather than go to court and spend money.
But in reaction, this year’s valedictorian took to the stage and led the class in a recitation of the Lord’s Prayer during the ceremony.
They ended to applause and a standing ovation.
Keep fighting the good fight, kids!
For a liberal publication that is constantly lecturing about diversity in the workplace, the Huffington Post is certainly not practicing what it preaches. [Read more…]
I love what NFL Pro-Bowler DeAngelo Williams did a couple weeks ago.
Along with a picture of his young daughter, Rhiya, smiling with several ribbons pinned to her shirt, Williams wrote:
“I took her Field Day participation ribbon & gave it back to her teacher…then in the next event she got 1st place…”
As the NFL player explained, Rhiya took part in four separate events for her school’s Field Day. But she “slowed up” during the first one and wound up taking 5th or 6th place, for which she still earned a participation ribbon.
He went on to explain that — though she was upset at first that he took her ribbon away and returned it to the teacher — he told his daughter, “If you want a ribbon, you come 1st, 2nd, or 3rd.”
Rhiya went on to win 1st place in her next event, followed by 3rd in the last two.
The following day, Williams posted a video titled “Failing Leads to Succeeding,” where he explained exactly why he did what he did. You have to watch it:
Here’s how I feel about coaches/teachers giving kids “Participation Ribbons”!!https://t.co/aaxg4hgMz3

This is amazing. DeAngelo didn’t overcome adversity and injuries by being patted on the head. He worked hard, failed, got back up, and then was victorious.
