(my comment and how to take action listed below)

A Florida school board is reviewing a state-approved world history textbook used in an Advanced Placement class over claims that the book covers Islam in loving, rah-rah detail while giving short shrift to Christianity and Judaism. The textbook – called simply World History – is published under Pearson’s Prentice Hall imprint and is currently in use in an A.P. class in Brevard County schools—and in school districts across the country.It contains a 36-page chapter fondly devoted to “Muslim Civilizations,” reports FOX News. Sections include discussions of the rise of Islam and the growth of the Muslim empire. Take a wild guess about the nu.mber of chapters the book dedicates to Christianity or Judaism. That’s right: zero.

Exclusive: Mychal Massie accuses Obama of fomenting racial discord globally
Mychal Massie | 26 August 2013
This is intended to be an open letter to you, Barack Obama. I will dispense with the usual salutatory “Dear Mr. blah blah” because to address you as same would mean that I accept you as my president, which I cannot and do not.

In America today, kids are being killed on the way to school, at school and on the way home from school.

President Obama awarded the Medal of Honor to Army Staff Sergeant Ty M. Carter on August 26, 2013 for the heroism he displayed during one of the most intense battles of the Afghanistan war.
Mr. Obama called Carter a “true American hero.”
In the Oct. 3, 2009 battle at Combat Outpost Keating, Carter rescued a fellow soldier and carried him through a hail of bullets, unarmed. On that day nearly 300 insurgents, armed with rifles & rocket-propelled grenades, surrounded the outpost in Afghanistan’s Nuristan Province. Fifty-three Americans were stationed there; eight were killed in the battle, and 22 were wounded.
When the battle started, Carter ran from his rack to a guard post, exposing himself to the barrage of gunfire. He knew that…
