On the eve of the 4th of July, America’s Independence Day … The LEFT is ruining this country.
According to a recent Gallup poll, only 54% of people say that they are “extremely proud” to be an American. This is down sharply following the 911 terror attacks in 2001 and the 70% who stated that they were extremely proud to be an American in 2003. The poll also showed that 27% say they are “very proud,” 14% say they are “moderately proud,” 4% are “only a little proud” and 1% state that they are “not at all proud.” The South is the most proud at 61%, then comes the Midwest, East and West at 55%, 50% and 46%, respectively.
Remember what Michelle Obama said in 2008, “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country …”
So what is the reason why so many Americans are no longer extremely proud to be Americans? One would think that it could be a result of Barack Obama being President and his efforts to change America. But in looking at what parties say they are extremely proud to be an American. it is the Republicans at 68%, Independents at 53% and the Democrats bringing up the rear at 47%. So why are Democrats not proud? Is it because the Democrat party now resembles more socialism that the Democrat party of JFK?
As Independence Day approaches, most in the U.S. say they are proud to be an American, including a slight majority, 54%, who are “extremely proud.” The percentage saying they are “extremely proud” is slightly lower than in recent years and down from peaks at and around 70% between 2002 and 2004, after 9/11.
In addition to the 54% who are extremely proud to be an American, 27% say they are “very proud,” 14% say they are “moderately proud,” 4% are “only a little proud” and 1% state that they are “not at all proud.”
What is most telling of this Gallup poll is the age breakdown of those who say they are most proud to be an American. The younger the age demographic of this poll, the lower the level of being proud to be an American. With those who are 65 years of age and older, they are 64% “extremely proud” to be American, while the 18-29 crowd is at 43%. What else should we expect when they have been continually told be the LEFT, the liberal MSM, politicians, race-baitors and liberal politicians and educators that America is bad?
Once again we should send a shout out and a sarcastic thank you to the public schools and the liberal indoctrination that has passed for the education of children over the years. The liberals have successfully made the young not be proud of the country that provided them liberty and freedoms that they could never comprehend.

4 People Threatened With Jail Time for Cheering Too Loudly at Highschool Graduation in Senatobia, Mississippi
DOES ANYONE THINK THAT THE FOUNDING FATHERS WOULD APPROVE OF THIS INSANITY?
Four people have been charged with disturbing the peace for cheering to loudly at a high school graduation ceremony in Senatobia, Mississippi. UNREAL. What has this country come to when you have to sit on your hands and be quiet as your child, sister, brother, etc. graduates at long last from high school? Are you telling me that a school system cannot extend the length of a graduation ceremony so that loved ones can clap, cheer and shout out to the graduates? But what would you expect from the public school education system of today that tries to control heart, mind and thought. Schools have become buildings of indoctrination. The parents have had no issue with the liberal agendas forced on their children, what is one more over-reaching rule? Henry Walker, one of the individuals cited with disturbing the peace said, “It’s crazy. The fact that I might have to bond out of jail, pay court costs, or a $500 fine for expressing my love, it’s ridiculous man. It’s ridiculous.” YES IT IS. The four individuals charged are expected to appear in court on June 9.
It would be hard to believe that a judge would not throw this case out or the charges are dropped prior to going to court due to bad PR. But then again, many current rules, regulations and laws make it hard to believe that we still live in the United States of America.
Four people were charged with disturbing the peace after cheering too loudly at a high school graduation ceremony in Senatobia, Miss., Memphis television station WREG reported on Tuesday.
Police at Northwest Mississippi Community College, where the ceremony was held, told WREG that Senatobia Municipal School District Superintendent Jay Foster, told attendees at the ceremony to refrain from cheering and applause until the end of the ceremony.
Four people, including Ursula Miller and Henry Walker (pictured above), both of whom are black, were asked to leave the ceremony after cheering on the graduates.
When Lanarcia Walker graduated, Miller yelled out her niece’s name.
“When she went across the stage I just called her name out. ‘Lakaydra’. Just like that,” Miller told WREG.
Gee, why didn’t they just handcuff these criminals for cheering or taser them? (sarcasm intended)
A note to the the folks at TMP, stop making this a racial thing. This has nothing to do with race, it has to do with typical liberal stupidity in our educational system. The libs have no problem with the liberal indoctrination of students from K thru high school. Suddenly they find fault with the system when it goes against their freedom of speech.
Take a look at the school district superintendents message below from the districts webpage. Hey dude, part of placing a strong emphasis on the success of all students in all aspects of the school experience…academically, socially, emotionally, and physically is to celebrate their graduation with squelching the speech and joy of their loved ones in celebrating their success.

Our goal is to set a standard for excellence in all academic areas as well as the co-curricular activities. Senatobia teachers focus on success for each student by creating opportunities where students are actively engaged in acquiring not only knowledge, but also skills necessary for lifelong learners.
All students are important in Senatobia schools, and we place strong emphasis on the success of all students in all aspects of the school experience…academically, socially, emotionally, and physically.

University of Virginia Dean Sues Rolling Stone Magazine for ‘False’ Portrayal & Defamation Lawsuit in Retracted Rape Story
YOU KNEW THIS ONE WAS COMING, ALSO THE FRAT WILL MOST LIKELY DO THE SAME …
UVA to sue Rolling Stone magazine for defamation. I am generally not a law-suit happy individual; however, this one was a no-brainer. Following the completely irresponsible reporting by Rolling Stone, A Rape on Campus, and the subsequent retracting of the story and apology after the story fell apart, University of Virginia associate dean of students filed a multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit against Rolling Stone magazine Tuesday. GOOD!!! With what Rolling Stone did, might just be the poster-child of cases for defamation.
Rolling Stone reported, A Rape on Ca,pus, What went wrong. Many people have been asking since the magazine retracted their story, Rolling Stone journalism … what went wrong?
A University of Virginia associate dean of students filed a multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit against Rolling Stone magazine Tuesday, alleging that it portrayed her as callous and indifferent to allegations of sexual assault on campus and made her the university’s “chief villain” in a now-debunked article about a fraternity gang rape.
Nicole Eramo is seeking more than $7.5 million in damages from Rolling Stone; its parent company, Wenner Media; and Sabrina Rubin Erdely, the investigative journalist who wrote the explosive account of sexual assault on the campus in Charlottesville. The magazine retracted the article after news organizations and the Columbia University journalism school found serious flaws in it.
Eramo, who is the university’s chief administrator dealing with sexual assaults, argues in the lawsuit that the article destroyed her credibility, permanently damaged her reputation and caused her emotional distress. She assailed the account as containing numerous falsehoods that the magazine could have avoided if it had worked to verify the story of its main subject, a student named Jackie who alleged she was gang-raped in 2012 and that the university mishandled her case.

23 Year Old Penn State Student Jon Steindorf Missing Since 5/8/15 in State College, PA (Update: Lied to Parents about Graduation & Attending Classes)(Update: Found Safe)
23 year old Penn State student Jon Steindorf has been missing since Friday, May 8, 2015 in State College, Pennsylvania. According to reports, the PSU student vanished just before his graduation. Stendort was last seen by his roommate at 11:30 a.m. on Friday. Steindorf was reported missing when he did not meet his family to go to his Penn State graduation Friday at around 4 p.m. at his Pugh Street apartment. He did not return any of his family’s phone calls or messages.
Missing – Jon Steindorf
Steindorf was reported missing when he did not meet his family to go to his Penn State graduation Friday at around 4 p.m.
Police describe Steindorf as a 23-year-old white male, 5’10” tall, 170 lbs with brown hair and blue eyes. He may have his black Specialized bicycle with him and a red backpack.
He left his apartment on Pugh Street without any form of identification, credit/debit cards, keys, phone, and potentially money, according to a social media post circulating among Steindorf’s family and friends.
UPDATE I: Police search for missing Penn State student.
“The police have gone through his apartment, talked to his roommate and took his phone for forensic analysis,” the woman said. “We’ve been in contact with all his friends, everybody they know, and really are just at a loss as to his whereabouts.”
A friend told the publication she’s checking his usual haunts. She hasn’t found him.
Joanne Steindorf said her son always let friends and family know his whereabouts.
It would appear that this kid was not being honest about graduating from college or even attending classes. I am not sure how long this missing student thought he could continue this charade; however, it is nothing to do anything extreme over. Is it an embarrassment, yes. But your parents just want you back safe and sound.
The parents of a missing 23-year-old State High graduate thought they’d be attending his graduation from Penn State this weekend.
As it turned out, Jon Steindorf had not enrolled last fall and had mysteriously vanished on Friday.
Steindorf was reported missing by his family Friday evening, a few hours after they went to his Pugh Street apartment at 4 p.m. to pick him up for Penn State commencement exercises.
His father, Paul Steindorf, said Sunday that he learned his son was not set to graduate this weekend, although Jon Steindorf told his parents that he wrapped up studies in the fall semester and delayed graduation until this spring.
“We thought he’d graduate, and that was our understanding that he completed fall classes and he delayed graduation until now, but the most recent information we received was he was not on the list to graduate,” Paul Steindorf said. “Apparently he wasn’t enrolled this fall.”
Jon Steindorf’s parents thought they were coming to State College to pick up their son after this weekend’s graduation from Penn State University. But as graduation approached, they learned that not only wasn’t their son graduating; he hasn’t been enrolled in Penn State since the fall.
And now, Jon Steindorf, 23, is missing.
WTAJ reports that State College Police are now looking for a missing Penn State student. His parents last spoke with Jon Steindorf Thursday.
Anyone with more information is asked to contact State College police at 814-234-7150.
UPDATE IV: Missing Penn State student found Safe.
A Penn State student reported missing by his parents last week has been found, and is safe and unharmed, State College police said Monday afternoon.
State College Police Department Media Release: The missing person has been located, is safe and unharmed.
