What’s Race Got To Do With It?

July 23, 2010

The race-healer in chief’s mojo is coming to a screeching, crashing halt. He was the post-racial prez, the guy that was neither black or white, but something like a Santa Clause figure whose appearance changed based upon whom viewed him. He was equally at home with his black buddies and his white buddies. He could easily separate himself from his race and would ‘change’ the country with ‘hope’.

No more. His rep is forever tarnished by what he has done in the past couple weeks alone. Black Panther-gate, suing Arizona over ‘racial discrimination’ in HB1070 (which doesn’t exist mind you) and who can forget that “the Cambridge police acted stupidly.” It seems that the entire Congress now defers to minorities rather than the rule of law.The New Black Panthers were unarguably harassing white voters in an attempt to drive them away from the polls. A whistleblower (J. Christian Adams) at the Justice Department has confirmed that the department had a slam-dunk case against the NBPP yet it was dropped because under AG Holder the department is opposed to trying cases of discrimination against white victims. (See http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/07/us/07rights.html?_r=1)

Now the organization fighting obscurity and utter disrepute, the NAACP is now claiming that the Tea Party is a racist organization and that it is the spiritual descendant of the White Citizens Council. My question? Why won’t the NAACP come out and condemn the NBPP or more specifically Minister King Samir Shabazz of ‘I hate white people’ fame. In case you haven’t heard it, let me quote it to you exactly: “I hate white people. Every last iota of a cracker, I hate him… If you want freedom, you gonna have to kill some crackers. You gonna have to kill some of they babies.”

Sounds real warm and huggable doesn’t he? That is the same man that was standing outside a Philadelphia polling station on election day 2008 with a nightstick. Regardless of color, there are racists among us. Blacks can hate whites as easily as whites can hate blacks. Asians can hate Hispanics and Europeans can hate Australians. The point is, we are never going to get past racism. NEVER! The human condition is unable to be removed from us as it is ingrained with sin. Some hearts will never change, and you can’t legislate morality. Government cannot change a heart, only God can through the blood of Jesus Christ. King Samir Shabazz needs Christ. And not his faux Christ of black liberation theology. For God doesn’t look on appearances, but on the heart.

I love people regardless of their color. But some people won’t do that. Some people hate others based on their color. And ones like Shabazz (both Samir and Zulu) are racist as well. Nothing can be done to heal old wounds when the former victims are turning into the oppressors. But here’s the thing. Race hustlers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and outright racists like King Samir Shabazz and Malik Zulu Shabazz were never subject to the same treatment that MLK or others were treated. They were never enslaved like in the 1800s. I still contend that if we go far enough back, every group on earth has been enslaved or mistreated by someone of the opposite race.

So in closing, if Obama were to truly want to be post-racial, he would look at the facts rather than the skin-tone and drop his radical agenda. Decrying Arizona’s largely white police and legislature (who are trying to enforce border policy) and sticking up for illegal immigrants who happen to be largely Hispanic (and crossing ILLEGALLY) is an example of radicalism. Justice is supposed to be blind, blind to color, blind to economic status, blind to gender. The eyes of justice are only supposed to behold facts, perhaps the President should take the same approach.


More to come…

July 17, 2010

Hey everybody, just wanting to make sure that no one thinks I’ve abandoned the fight. No, it’s just been awfully busy lately. I fully intend on keeping up the fight against Obama and his health care, immigration, economic, social and justice positions. America needs strong conservatives to keep the fight going against the liberal and progressive ideologies of the day. God Bless America!

What Independence Day Means to Me

July 3, 2010

Independence Day is a day for cookouts, fireworks, time with family and friends. It’s time to go to the local park or other recreational facility. Right? Well for too many Americans that is all that it consists of. Sometimes the true meaning of the fourth of July is obscured by our many busy activities and doings.

The fourth of July means spending time thinking of those soldiers on far off battlefields that are being shot at. It means thanking God that there are many braver and more willing than I to leave family, friends and security of everyday life to water the tree of liberty. That there are those who, instead of pursuing a lucrative career in business, instead don the uniform of a grunt, a devil-dog, a sea-bee or a fly-boy and ensure the blessings of liberty to us and our posterity. They heeded the call of duty and answered, some to return, others to fall.

This day brings to mind the words of the song: “All gave some, some gave all. Some stood true for the red, white and blue, and some had to fall… If you ever think of me, think of all your liberties and recall, some gave all.” Truer words were never spoken. As some have noted, “It was not the poet who gave us freedom of speech, nor was it the reporter who gave us freedom of press, nor was it the reverend who gave us freedom of religion, but the soldier.” We can thank the soldiers who have given of themselves, sometimes paying with their lives to ensure that their sons and daughters would grow up in a country free from tyranny and oppression. From Bunker Hill and Lexington, to Philadelphia, to the beaches of Virginia and the hills of Appalachia, to the distant shores of Tripoli and the Mexican wilderness, to the beaches of Normandy and the Islands of the Pacific, to Inchon in Korea, to the rice paddies of Vietnam, to the island of Panama, to the sands of the Middle East and Afghanistan, to wherever next they be, we salute our boys and girls in uniform and thank them with the utmost degree of respect and adoration. We know that they are not perfect and have fear and apprehension of their situations, but we know also that they push on, showing their patriotism by their deeds and not simply their words. May God Bless our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines on this fourth of July and give them strength, courage, and wisdom and may they come home safe and soon. God Bless America.

Obama’s Plan to Ruin America

June 23, 2010

Yes my friends, you read that right. America is being sabotaged from within and the culprit is none other than our dear leader, The One, Barry Hussein Obama. While the economic impact of the oil spill in the gulf is horrifying to say the least, The One, He Who Will End Global Warming and Solve All Ills, is exacerbating the situation with a 6 month moratorium on drilling. You might say ‘Oh well the judge overturned that’ or ‘Good, no more oil spills’, imagine this, thousands of people could lose their jobs working on the rigs, stocking the rigs, supplying the rigs, upkeep on the rigs etc. for 6 months. Imagine this also, if they lose them for that long, they could lose them forever. Do you want to know why? Each day that those rigs sit idle costs the owner millions of dollars. Foreign companies are already lining up to bid on those rigs. Six months without drilling is an economic death sentence for thousands and thousands of workers.

Even though the federal judge has overturned the ban, the administration is planning on appealing the ban and Ken Salazar (the one in charge of the situation) has already leveled another ban, trying to get that one through the judicial system. Do you see what is going on America? Our own president and his crack-pot team of politicos and aparatchiks are trying to ruin the oil industry and put thousands more people out of work. What could possibly be a good reason for doing this? There is none, except that Obama wants to increase his power and control over people’s lives. We are heading for despotism folks.

He has also announced plans for a new round of ‘stimulus’ involving billions if not trillions more wasted taxpayer money. He is pushing comprehensive immigration reform AKA amnesty. He wants to push card-check allowing forcible unionization. America, our president is a radical, un-American who is trying to ruin our country. We need to deal a severe blow to him and his democratic socialists of America come this November when the Tea Party Express will be handing many dems a pink slip. Keep up the good fight friends, America will stand so long as we continue to fight for limited government and personal freedom.

Life and Chipmunks

June 15, 2010

The story of my life. My family and I have a small strawberry patch that we were hoping to get some of our own home grown strawberries this year. One problem, the chipmunks had the same idea.

Chipmunks are ordinarily cute, fuzzy little beings that have nothing better to do than dash around and look cute while small children think of the lovable denizens of Disney lore, Chip and Dale. They can be funny creatures as they chase each other and frolic all the day long. And then comes growing season. And then they turn into malevolent little monsters with only one goal: to destroy, eat, and otherwise ruin your garden. They race back and forth stealing strawberries, tearing up plants etc. So, what does one do? Trap them?

A mouse trap does not work. We’ve tried. The beasts’ necks are so strong they bust the spring on the trap. (Well not really, but I’ve never caught one in them.) Rat traps don’t work. The beings are so fast they grab the bait, dance on the trigger and dart off before the large and bruising piece of metal comes down.

Shoot them? You can’t do it. A BB gun would surely kill them if it hit them. I think I might have knocked off a couple, but if you’re farther away than 5-10 yards good luck. The sound of the air blast alerts them and they zoom off, chittering as they go. Maybe a shotgun blast of birdshot might take out one, as well as three quarters of the yard. A rifle might work but the danger of a bullet ricocheting off the ground and hitting someone is a risk I’m not willing to take for strawberries. Maybe land mines?

But there is a bigger issue here. It is life. Sometimes we have to put up with things that annoy us, simply because doing something, anything is not always the best course. Sometimes we need to think out what we are going to do and do what we are going to do in a measured, controlled response. It also shows that certain things are not rights. We don’t have the right to have a taxpayer subsidized exterminator come out because of our strawberries. It is our own issue and we should deal with it as we see fit, so long as we don’t endanger other lives. Government cannot do for us, we must do for ourselves through individual initiative. It really also makes me realize just how incapable and awe-inspiringly stupid some government ideas are. Like that government knows better what Americans need and shouldn’t own, rather than we do. Why should bureaucrats tell us that we better buy health care, we shouldn’t buy that firearm etc. when they’ve never worked in the health industry and many of them haven’t ever fired a gun? Americans need to vote out the big government socialists and let our ballots do the talking. I think that’s something that even the chipmunks can rally behind.

My Thoughts on Expansion

June 11, 2010

I am a rabid college football fan. Though I have never visited my favorite team’s stadium or gone to a game, I watch every game that I can on TV and the ones I can’t I follow on the radio or internet, I wear my team colors with pride on every Saturday in the fall, I have a matching bed set adorned with my team’s logo and I went as far as to have an Ohio State lightswitch cover. So with the expansion business fully underway, I find it necessary to throw my $.02 into the ring about the whole issue.

First the pros: It seems likely now that Nebraska has joined the Big Ten. I want to congratulate the Huskers on a VERY good decision to join. They will find that they are a perfectly natural fit for most of the conference as OSU, Iowa, Penn State, Wisconsin and (if they ever get their act together) Michigan all play tough, grind it out, hard nosed defensive football. Nebraska is exactly the same. They also fit in geographically. Nebraska is, for the most part, pretty close to a lot of the teams in the Big Ten. We could very easily see a Nebraska-Iowa or Nebraska-Minnesota started up by this new move. Academically they are part of the AAU which makes it attractive as well. From a purely selfish standpoint, I see this as adding a tough team with lots of history to come in and make the Big Ten even stronger heading into next year or the year after that. With Iowa, OSU, Penn State, Wisconsin and Nebraska all being legit national contenders for the next 5-10 years right off the bat and, with the consistent success those teams have had in the past, we could see all the above (and Michigan, if they ever get their act together) be national contenders for years after that.

As a side note, the conference championship game would be a push between a pro and a con, as I would likely get to see OSU play another game for the next many years, but it would obliterate the traditional last game of the year with That Team from Up North. It seems like for most fans of the Big Ten the addition of a conference championship game supersedes the loss of The Game’s symbolic placement at the end. But for me, it would be the worst thing to come out of expansion.

Now for the cons. First off, this might make for fewer non-con games. This might make games like OSU-USC (which arguably hasn’t been too good for us over the past two years, but if we played them at the end there is no question who would have won!), OSU-Miami, OSU-Nebraska (wait!) a thing of the past. Then again the conference would be tougher and a one loss Big Ten team might get the same respect as a 1 loss SEC team. Two, the addition of Nebraska might push the Pac-10 to add Texas, thereby giving credence to their toughness as a conference. Even so, a Big Ten with Nebraska, Iowa, Penn State, Wisconsin and Ohio State is still better than a Pac-10 with Texas, USC, Oregon, UCLA and Stanford.

In any event, college football as we know it is changing, rapidly. The Big Ten was supposed to be on a timeline where a team was added in December, here it is in June and we already seemingly have our 12th member. Momentous changes could be occurring within days.

The Great Union Hypocrisy

June 7, 2010

My tirade and assault on the unions; nay their corrupt political arms, continues. With a recent piece of literature *cough propaganda cough* coming through my mail box today, I opened it to find a new wave of insults and derogatory remarks aimed at the tea party people. Now, to clear any confusion, I am not a member of a tea party group. However, I FULLY support their ideals and see them as trying to rightfully reclaim their country from a bureaucratic monstrosity and big government bent on spending us into oblivion. Anyway, this union assails to good people from the tea party with statements such as these: “Their paranoia and hatred for anything to do with President Obama have blinded them to the point of a sort of mass hysteria that I believe is a social phenomenon this country hasn’t seen since the days of McCarthyism.” Where do I start? First off, I haven’t seen a whole ton of ‘mass hysteria’ from the tea party. Nope, all I see is a bunch of flag waving and singing patriotic songs. Hmm… are those crazy people patriotic? Nope, jingoistic and nationalist. Shame on those filthy, backwards bomb throwers and rabble-rousers.

Secondly, I think that the anti-war loons from Vietnam through the Iraq war would more so qualify for ‘mass hysteria’, especially the ones that carried signs portraying Bush as Hitler or with a bullet through his forehead. Maybe the Watts or LA rioters. Still drawing blanks unnamed union official?

“The ugliness being stirred up in our Country by the tea baggers needs to stop. The rest of the world sees us as tea baggers and not the kind- hearted people that we are. Just before Tim McVeigh, the mood in the country was ugly as well. Wake up people!” This one I’m really getting sick of. The only ugliness that’s being stirred up is being opened by leftists like *unnamed union official* who constantly refer to tea partiers by a sexualized slur. The same people that are ‘kind- hearted people that we are’ are the ones defaming the tea partiers that have legitimate and substantial worries about the direction our country is heading in. And why is it that every time a conservative (or conservative group) raises hackles about something the left brings up Timothy McVeigh? We conservatives don’t bring up the Black Panthers or Bill Ayers. Also, do you really think grandma’s gonna whip out a Magnum .357 or Uzi from her purse and mow down a bunch of politicos? Maybe we should be concentrating on people like, oh I don’t know… Nidal Hassan or Abdul Malik Mohammed Hussein… heck with it, the boxer bomber? Not every time an atmosphere is ugly it ends in violence, nope, sometimes it ends in political hacks losing their jobs, like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are poised for.

“It seems the public is tiring of the anti-Obama rhetoric, but that doesn’t mean it will go away…” Before I continue with this whopper, I had to bring something up. ‘It won’t go away’? You mean like that health care bill from the devil? The one that 65%+ of Americans didn’t want yet was shoved down our throats? Yeah, he knows what he’s talking about. “…Certainly if the economy improves month by month, then the hypocrisy of the teabaggers will become more visible to the public because they’ll realize that the bottom line is that the majority of the teabaggers, for whatever reason, either strongly dislike or simply hate Barack Obama.” Uh-huh. If the economy improves month by month, yeah that’s a big ‘if’ dummy. Especially considering that out of the 400,000 jobs we added in April or May or whatever month it was, 90%+ of them were temp. Census jobs. ‘WOW! Honey, I was just hired to the Census bureau. Only problem… I’ll be out of work in 6 weeks.’ Yeah, economy’s really looking up. Uh-huh. Maybe the economy is not getting better because we didn’t spend enough money on it. Yeah, that’s it. We need to spend more money. So here’s the deal, we’ll spend $20,000,000,000,000 to bail EVERYBODY out and then there’ll be enough money to go around and companies will hire and world hunger will be eradicated etc. The only minor side effect? Our dollars will be worth, oh say… 1/10th of a Zimbabwean dollar. (If that doesn’t register, a hamburger in Zimbabwe costs 10 trillion Zimbabwean dollars. An egg costs 500 billion.) But darn them teabagging rednecks, they just hate Obama because ‘AAAAHHHH there’s a bleck mann in da whyite hause!!!!!’ Give me a break.

You see my fellow Americans, union leadership is corrupt as a rule. Members in unions are just like everyday Americans. They want their kids to be safe and to have a better life than they had. They want America to be free and prosperous. Most probably have conservative views. But the union leadership has become nothing but a political pawn, a shill, a sheeple for the Democratic Socialist party of America. They should not be taken seriously anymore.
