Hat tip goes to the PatriotUpdate.com for their 3/29/11 article, "Anti-Abortion Billboards Featuring Obama to Go Up in
... The billboards’ message is taken from polls showing that black women have more abortions than their white counterparts. In a 2008 poll, the sexual health research organization Guttmacher Institute (a Planned Parenthood related research organization) examined abortion rates in the U.S. between 1974 and 2004 and found that Hispanic and black women were three to five times more likely to have an abortion than white women.
“These are babies who could grow up to be the future presidents of the United States, or the next Oprah Winfrey, Denzel Washington or Maya Angelou,” said Life Always Board Member, the Rev. Derek McCoy. Those future black leaders, he said, “are being aborted at an alarming rate.”

"I do not hate the Muslim people, I hate the cult of Islam."---
The Freedom Robbing Nature of Political Correctness."
Here is what the local Mansfield (Ohio) News Journal wrote about this event:
MANSFIELD -- Citing safety concerns, Mansfield City Schools has withdrawn its permission for a community group to hold a controversial speaking event at a district facility tonight.
Representatives from Mansfield Branch of NAACP and some other organizations called on the school to pull the plug on the event during a press conference this morning that immediately followed the school district's announcement that safety concerns compelled them to cancel.
Mansfield North Central Ohio Tea Party Association, meanwhile, has found another venue for tonight's presentation by Usama Dakdok.
Senator Harry “White Flag of Surrender” Reid said this week that under no circumstances will he permit the defunding of the perverse, law-breaking Planned Parenthood Federation of America as part of any continuing resolution or authorized budget. He felt so strongly about this that he stated that even if it meant shutting down the federal government. Well, Harry if you feel that way, “Shut ‘er dooooowwwwnnnnn!!!!
On the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) funding issue alone it would be worth shutting down the non-essential workings of government. The PPFA has breached the trust of the American people by its pattern of lawbreaking and operating above the law. Undercover videos of the last few years revealed a pattern of dishonesty and lawbreaking, which rivals that of ACORN another leftist pillar of pernicious practices. Undercover videos reveal the abhorrent underbelly that belies PPFA marketing hype. See www.ExposePlannedParenthood.net for more information.
Charles M. Page, Sr. had some thoughts on the possible shut-down of our self-serving government guilty of gloating in its self-importance. He posted an article at www.TeaPartyNation.com, “Shutting Down The Government Sounds Like A Deal To Me...”He would like to see the government shut down, as would I.
Page makes several good points, first he says, “Now I know that they always mean "shutting down only non-essential services" whenever this subject comes up, and usually refer to "continuing to operate the military, and to payout Social Security check, etc."” It would also be important to pay the interest on our staggering debt, so that we don’t incur additional penalties, which would drive up the deficit and debt even further.
That is the question we all should be asking. The U.S. Constitution answers that in Article 1, Section 8.
Page looks at this looming budget crisis confrontation positively, “My hope is that the (newer) Republicans in the House, because that it the only group I see potentially able to make a stand on this issue, will vote to pass no more "Continuing Resolutions to keep the Federal Government operating" when this next deadline comes due.

As we have often sated, in our church we do not baptize babies. We believe that “as many as were made sinners” (Romans 5) Christ, by His work on the cross, made righteous.
Baptism has nothing to do with Adamic (Adam’s original) sin. As many as believed were baptized, both men and women. Baptism is for believers. But, in the word of God we read that they would bring their children into the temple and dedicate them to the Lord.
In my early ministry I used to wonder why I became a preacher. I did not intend to be a preacher. I could take a story like the Prodigal Son, or some other Bible Story, and talk on it, drawing lessons from it, but that was about the extent of my preaching ability. However, I got to preaching, and by and by got to holding evangelistic meetings. I started preaching, and have never been able to quit.
I was holding a meeting one time in
You parents should realize the solemnity of this occasion. If you make a vow unto the Lord, He will surely require it of you. I would be afraid for the life of my baby, otherwise. This means that you take second place in the life of that child. After all, you want the child to put God first in its life. Jesus said, “He that forsaketh not father and other for My sake cannot be my disciple.” Therefore, it is what the will of God will be for your child – not your will that shall be in the future.
Are you ready to dedicate your child to the Lord, recognizing that you are giving God first place in the life of your child? (Answer: Yes.)
Do you promise that you will strive to so live that you will be an example to this boy as he grows to manhood, so that you can say: “Follow me as I follow Christ”? (Answer: Yes.)
(Prayer): O God, we pray that Thou wilt bless this little lad. We thank thee for him. We believe that he was dedicated long ago to Thee. As he comes into the temple, we ask Thee to bless him; as we know that this mother and the father, who is in the service of his country, if he were here, would be standing here dedicating this child to Thee. Bless him, put Thy hands upon him – the unseen Hand -, and may he be used in the service of the King. We ask this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Press ReleaseFrom: Marcia Webb, President Mansfield Branch NAACPHeadline:
NAACP DENOUNCES TEA PARTY SPEAKER MANSFIELDMarcia Webb, President of the Mansfield Branch (NAACP) was contacted about fliers being posted at the high school in areas around the school which announced a a speaker coming on Monday, March 28th at the High School Auditorium. The speaker is being hosted by The Mansfield North Central Ohio Tea Party.The N.A.A.C.P. has always supported Education for the future of children, and was disappointed to learn that the High School building would be used to allow "Anti-Muslim, Anti-American Rhetoric" to be spewed from the stage of the schools' auditorium. I spoke to Supt. Freund on yesterday, and I was disappointed that he was not willing to do more to discourage assemblies of this type from occurring at the school.I understand the constitutional right to freedom of speech, but I wholeheartedly disagree with the school district allowing these types of divisive messages to be displayed in our local school building. My concern is for the students attending MSHS who are of the Muslim faith and how this will impact their well being.The Mansfield Branch will be sending written request to the Mansfield School Board asking them to review and amend the policy for future use/rental to include restrictions for the content of the events held at the school buildings. The NAACP believes that this necessary infrastructure for these type checks and balances will help restore the public trust of the community in the School Administration now and in the future and ensure the safety of our students attending Mansfield City Schools.

Losing the Brains Race

“Although students in many developed nations have been learning more and more over time, American 15-year olds are stuck in the middle of the pack in many fundamental areas, including reading and math. Yet the
United Statesis near the top in education spending (with the exception of Switzerland, the spends the most in the world on education). US
“… If (education) reform is to be defined by something other than the amount of money flushed down the toilet, it is time to reverse the flow of power from the top (school districts, teachers unions, governments) to the bottom (students, their parents, and taxpayers who want their money spent wisely)…”

“... Meanwhile the (Republicans and Democrats) fight over relatively microscopic slivers and nicks, such as $14.8 million for grants for restoring historic buildings.
“Finding big money – the hundreds of billions (trillion and one-half!) needed ti dent the deficit – is a lot harder.
“Of course it is, as long as Congress keeps looking only within the confines of nondefense discretional spending – about 12 percent of the budget.
