No, it's a goat. Chicken is for the evening sacrifice.

Beheading is for those who say it wrong. Burning is what you do for those who don't say it.

There are approximately 33 versions of that prayer.

And I'll bet that Sen. Dennis Kruse (R-Auburn) thinks that the only version recited daily will only be the one he personally uses or approves. What if it isn't? Then they they could even have xtains prtted against other xtians. Govenment sponsored prayer and religion is divisive (and illegal).

The Federal Reserve is a Ponzi scheme. It can never get paid off internally. Each dollar created for the treasury has interest on it. There is no possible way to pay it off unless we start to manufacture more goods/services for other countries to generate revenue. The Federal Reserve is not a govt controlled agency, it is backed by international bankers. They earn interest on all the debt we rack up. Those Basturds bankroll the corrupt govt officials so they will never balance the budget honestly.

All this prayer in school garbage is just a distraction. A way to divide the citizens even farther, so we don't realize how we have no say. People will fight for/against the school prayer and think they got a victory and not even realize we have waaaaayyy bigger problems!

US debt was sustainable in the 70s-90s when the world was obliged to buy dollars to trade in oil. Now there is the Euro.

Iraq was discussing trading in Euros in 2003 when they got nailed.

Venezuela and Iran trade oil in Euros and are therefore more evil than Saudi, birthplace of the 9/11 mass murderers.
