Elementary school cancels Halloween

A Massachusetts elementary school has canceled its Halloween events and is celebrating ´black and orange spirit day´ instead. Boyden Elementary School´s principal sent a letter to parents this week saying that it had decided to cancel its traditional Halloween parade on October 31 because it was ´not inclusive of all students´ and was ´difficult´ for many. Without specifying which students the parade excluded, Principal Brendan Dearborn said the school would instead hold a ´black and orange spirit day´.  Children are allowed to dress in those colors but cannot come to school in costume. They are however allowed to wear costumes to an

Where I live it isn´t the liberals who are trying to kill Halloween - it is the "Christian" Fundamentalists - every year my neighborhood goes further and further into Halloween decorations and candy hand outs - no way the politically correct are going to dissuade us from celebrating Halloween, Christmas, Hanukah or Veteran´s Day

Somehow I don´t think this has anything to do with Jehovah´s Witness or devout Christians, but I can think of another religion that might have a problem with it.

This is why immigrants need to assimilate to our culture, not us to theirs.

One by one they are chipping away at America. Not wanting you to fly the flag from your home or car, Christopher Columbus attacked, Washington, Jefferson etc. being defamed. The NFL has turned into a five ring circus. Halloween being thrown to the curb. I am sure the Pilgrims will be next with demands that we change the name of Thanksgiving to indigenous pig out day. After all the Pilgrims were white and Christian. Evil personified. And we know what they are trying to do to Christmas. We can continue to be America as long as we do it behind closed doors as not to upset anyone. You do not have the right to go through life and assume you will never be offended. You cannot go through life and feel that every activity must be all inclusive. American watch out.

Mass is moonbat central so I´m not surprised.

But even in my semi-red state lots of towns are replacing traditional trick or treat with with what they call "tailgate" or "trunk" trick or treat. Instead of the kids walking around the neighborhoods knocking on doors, they are supposed to go to a central location where people park their cars and give out candy. Kind of takes the fun out of it IMHO.

It happened 6 years ago in my neck of the woods, the suburbs of Harrisburg PA.
2011, atheists marched in the Halloween Parade. One dressed as a priest, another as a zombie Muhammad.
A muslim man who attended the parade was ´insulted´ and attacked the atheist.
The atheist pressed charges.
The judge dismissed the case because the atheist insulted Islam.
The judge had to go into hiding.

Madness is not exclusive to California. Nutty people - SJW Liberals - are everywhere in varying numbers. We in California, millions of Republicans and about as many with no party affiliation, are pulled along by a state legislature that has swung quite left of left. And a governor who has always been quite mad.

I’m glad that I was a kid when I was a kid. We had huge Halloween carnivals at public school (!) and one Christmas I performed in a production of the Nativity (word for word, from the Bible) in the same elementary school auditorium.

#17, I went to one of those Truck or Treat tailgates. very few kids showed up. After the kids filled their bags, which only took minutes because the people were stuffing their bags, the participates were chasing after the kids to take more. Their trunks were still full of candy and they could not give it away. They still do it every year ... with the same result. The kids and the parents like the old-fashion Trick or Treat. liberals are nuts. It´s all one-up-manship and look how cool and smart I am. They are nuts.

I have to echo #2´s observation about the fudamentalists. Where I used to live in NM, a lot of churches would have a "fall festival" to discourage kids from trick or treating. Still another would put on a fake haunted house that turned out to be a big commercial for their cult. Everyone knew what was up and it became a big joke.
People are free to do as their conscience dictates, but I feel bad for the little ones who miss out on the fun of dressing up in scary costumes and getting free loot. It was a part of growing up that I remember fondly.

Let’s be honest. The school is trying not to offend Muslim students.

Halloween is actually a Christian holiday - All Hallows’ Eve - the night before All Saints Day, which celebrates Christian saints and remembers those of the faith who have passed away in the last year.

This is nothing more than another anti-Christian effort by the leftists in public education

"Not inclusive"? I doubt the kids feel that way. Tell the kids that they get to wear silly costumes, run amok after dark, and get free candy. The kids will be all for it, and they won´t care if the reason is Halloween, Rosh Hashanah, Ramadan, Ganesh Chaturthi, or even just Thursday.

The anal-retentive "adults", however, will miss no opportunity to spoil somebody´s day or to destroy a tradition.

WaPo Columnist: Franken Shouldn’t

Mediaite, by Larry O´Connor    Original Article

The Washington Post published a column Friday morning by feminist Kate Harding. The column criticizes Sen. Al Franken over the recent revelations of Leeann Tweeden detailing Franken’s lewd and harassing behavior during a USO tour in 2006. Harding’s take can fairly be summed up as: “Sure, Franken’s a pig, but he votes to keep abortion legal so he shouldn’t resign.” Harding is described in her byline by the Washington Post as “co-editor of “Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump’s America,” co-host of the podcast Feminasty, and author of “Asking for It: The Alarming Rise of Rape Culture—And What

The Houston economy rebounded strongly last month after losing thousands of jobs in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, aided by the oil industry recovery and strong state and national economic growth. The metropolitan area added more than 27,000 jobs in October, more than making up for the 20,000 lost in September after devastating floods shut and in some cases destroyed thousands of businesses across the region, according to data from the U.S. Labor Department. Even employment sectors hardest hit by natural disasters experienced substantial job gains. Local bars and restaurants, for example, added about 8,000 jobs from October 2016, a

An FBI report on the rise of black "extremists" is stirring fears of a return to practices used during the civil rights movement, when the bureau spied on activist groups without evidence they had broken any laws. The FBI said it doesn´t target specific groups, and the report is one of many its intelligence analysts produce to make law enforcement aware of what they see as emerging trends. A similar bulletin on white supremacists, for example, came out about the same time. (Snip) Before the Trump administration, the report might not have caused such alarm. The FBI noted it issued

Sen. Cory Booker’s name comes up frequently in talk about the 2020 presidential race, but some Democrats wonder if he has what it takes to compete in what could be a crowded primary. While Democrats say Booker, 48, is one of the party’s “fresh faces” compared to elder statesmen like former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders, they aren’t sure he has created a lane for himself against would-be rivals. “It’s a very high ceiling but he hasn’t met early expectations,” said one top Democratic strategist who has worked on several presidential campaigns. “He needs a signature fight

Former Democratic Rep. Corrine Brown asked for leniency from a federal judge in Florida on Friday.

In May, a jury convicted Brown of 18 felony counts, including filing false tax returns, mail fraud, and working with others to run a fake non-profit group. Her conviction represents a major fall from political grace. Brown was one of the first black elected officials to be elected to federal office in Florida in 1992.

A former organizer for Hillary Clinton´s presidential campaign and a former volunteer for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) 2016 White House bid say they were the victims of sexual harassment while they were working for the candidates, according to a HuffPost report on Friday. The allegations come in the midst of a wave of sexual harassment charges in the political realm. Clinton did not comment to the Huffington Post on the story. Sanders´ office acknowledged that while interns and employees on his campaign would have been given a handbook on sexual harassment, volunteers were not, and that that policy would be changed going forward.

US home construction reaches
strongest pace in a year
Associated Press, by Josh Boak    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 11/17/2017 4:27:19     Post Reply
Construction of new homes climbed 13.7 percent in October, the biggest jump in a year as builders broke ground on more apartments and single-family houses. The Commerce Department said Friday that the monthly gain put U.S. housing starts at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.29 million units. That is the best pace for home construction in 12 months. Housing starts have risen just 2.4 percent year-to-date, largely because fewer apartment complexes are being built. Single-family house construction has driven much of the growth this year in a sign of greater demand from buyers amid a healthy job market. But

Thursday, July 6, 1989 Quogue- I love how New York changes so completely in the summer. It’s my favorite time of year here, sitting at my wooden desk before the open window with the cool sea breeze. The August issue arrived by FedEx. The Jackie O cover story, and Michael Milken’s rise and fall by Marie, is a much more commercial combo than July. To generate some summer heat I assigned Ed Klein to do Jackie to mark her sixtieth birthday. I asked him because he was always going on about how she liked him when he edited The New York Times Magazine.

More than two dozen investigators have spent weeks scouring wine country trying to solve the mystery at the heart of the most destructive wildfires in California history: What caused the infernos that killed 43 people and destroyed more than 8,000 buildings?

In the longstanding liberal narrative about Bill Clinton and his scandals, the one pushed by Clinton courtiers and ratified in media coverage of his post-presidency, our 42nd president was only guilty of being a horndog, his affairs were nobody’s business but his family’s, and oral sex with Monica Lewinsky was a small thing that should never have put his presidency in peril.

Her approval of a plan in which top aides would preview campus administrators’ confidential survey responses “reflected poor judgment and set in motion a course of conduct that the Board of Regents finds unacceptable,” board chairman George Kieffer said in a statement after the regents met behind closed doors for nearly five hours.
