"Hey America!"

Another day on Planet Bizarro...the multi-millionaire Senate majority leader Harry Reid is now referring to illegal immigrants as Americans! The multi-millionaire House majority leader Nancy Pelosi believes that welfare and food stamps actually STIMULATE the economy! The multi-millionaire President of these United States, Barack Hussein Obama, has continuously vilified the Bush-era tax policies...but now believes that they will stimulate the economy and create jobs! Like the old STAR TREK episode featuring a parallel universe populated with our goateed evil twins, I keep waiting to see the facial hair appear on everyone, then I check the mirror to see if a goatee has appeared on MY face...nope!

In this lame-duck portion of the 111th Congress, the very people that we voted out are desperately trying for one last "SCREW YOU, AMERICA" with some pretty critical issues. We have (mostly) heterosexual and vehemently anti-military legislators voting to force the majority of our military to accept a perverse lifestyle that a minority of them have chosen. We have legislators voting on a nuclear weapons treaty while allowing two of the most unstable regimes on the planet to develop the means necessary to produce them! We have the same legislators who refused to pass a budget at the start of the current fiscal year NOW trying to cram through another deficit-buster to govern the spending of the NEXT Congress.

At the start of each new Congress in January of every odd-numbered year, the entire House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate take this oath: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."

It seems to me that any of our elected lawmakers who refuse to enforce Federal immigration laws and/or wish to create a new and shorter "path to citizenship" for these lawbreakers are guilty of violating their oath of office and should be criminally indicted for the same.

Triangulation For Dummies

There seems to be a new political buzzword floating around...TRIANGULATION. In the pre-GPS era, triangulation was how one determined their location. With a map and bearings to 2 fixed points, one could determine exactly where they were.

There are two problems with triangulation as it applies to elected office. (A) If you don't know where you stand, should you really be in, or considering, public office? And (B) There is only ONE fixed point in politics...that is TOTAL GOVERNMENT CONTROL over the citizenry. The other point is that level of government intrusion that WE THE PEOPLE are willing to accept.

It is refreshing to see WE THE PEOPLE pushing back against growing governance via the Conservative movement, talk radio, the Internet and the TEA PARTY. But is it enough, and is it in time?

As a group, the Progressives seeking total global government control are FAR outnumbered. Their strategy? Reduce the opposition to numerous fringe groups who would be willing to give away a little freedom to accomplish their individual agendas. We see it in the political arena every day. Don't you find it somewhat ironic that the Democrats, the self-proclaimed PARTY OF UNITY, seek to divide us at every turn?

If you disagree with their stance on illegal immigration, then you are a heartless bigot who seeks only to destroy families who are doing the jobs that we won't do. If you value the traditional nuclear family and don't want sexual perversity shoved in your face, then you are a homophobe!!! If you have worked hard all your life and amassed any kind of wealth or estate, then you are one of the EVIL WEALTHY. That is, unless you are the President or an elected Representative...then you play yourself as just a regular citizen who understands our needs and legislates accordingly.

This DIVIDE AND CONQUER strategy is in full swing, and those who seek the destruction of the American Experiment in Liberty to bring about a GLOBAL GOVERNANCE have two things on their side...UNLIMITED PATIENCE and UNLIMITED MONEY. They only need us to keep giving up a little freedom at a time. Like the frog in the slowly-heating pot of the time he realizes he's dinner it's too late for him to do anything about it.

MOMENT OF TRUTH is the title of the recently-released report from the President's non-partisan Debt Commission after researching the government's taxation and spending practices. The harsh reality of the predicament that OUR government has put us in is now out in the open for all to see. The situation? It is deep into the fourth quarter, and we are way behind. We are looking at 4th and long, and punting is simply not an option anymore.
Yes Mr. President, it truly your MOMENT OF TRUTH. Are you the America-hating Socialist that I feel you are, hell-bent on the destruction of our way of life? So far, you have yet to prove otherwise. From your constant apologies for American exceptionalism to your obvious disregard for history and disdain for the will of the American people, you have done nothing to convince ME otherwise.
America DOESN'T need fundamental transformation, our government does.

Queen Nancy, Refusing To Go Quietly

Like a true narcissist, Nancy must remain the center of her own little world. Despite a stinging demotion and near-universal rejection of her quote-unquote version of reality, she is insisting on remaining the head of the now-Democrat minority in the lower House of Congress.

Some of her fellow Democrats are refusing to endorse her run for the minority leadership...these are the ones who are more concerned with getting President Obama re-elected in 2012. Then there are those who are enthusiastically supporting her effort...these are the Democrats who see the writing on the wall...they KNOW that Obama is "one and done" AND they have someone who is willing to jump on yet another grenade.

Prez Barry is in quite a pickle on this one. If he doesn't support her, then he will literally be blaming her for the massive voter rejection of HIS socialist agenda, and will likely lose support of the far-left liberals. If he DOES support her, then he alienates the moderate bloc of the Democrat party who will be critical for any re-election effort that he may hope to mount.

My prediction? He will quietly persuade her to step out of the spotlight and allow Steny Hoyer to assume the reins of minority leadership and attempt to salvage some of the larger voting blocs for his 2012 re-election run.

My Take On....

BULLYING! Here we go with another government intrusion into an area where it doesn't belong, and as usual, at the cost of our civil rights. And again, it is because we, as citizens, have allowed it to happen. As usual, it is the symptom that is garnering the focus and not the problem.
Kids picking on each other is nothing new, and I speak from a position of experience on this topic. As a skinny, buck-toothed, knock-kneed redhead, and a geek to boot, I was "selected" for this "additional attention" quite a bit. As an additional incentive to those who did the picking, I was a military brat so the frequent moves meant I was usually the "new kid".

In my experience with bullying, both in childhood and subsequently into adult life, bullies generally don't kill the targets of their "attention". Therefore, the liberal mantra that "bullying is an epidemic and must be stopped" is misguided and borders on dangerous. The so-called epidemic is in the REACTION to the killing themselves and society blaming it on the bully. That, ladies and gentlemen, is a total crock. The problem is that our politically-correct, multicultural, instant-gratification feelgood society has turned this latest generation into a bunch of namby-pamby, pantywaisted little brats. They are growing into teenagers and young adults who simply do not have the coping skills to deal with life on life's terms.

Obama's Critical Slip?

President Obama's handlers must be grimacing in agony every time he opens his mouth without a teleprompter nearby. In an unscripted moment on JON STEWART'S The Daily Show, the Narcissist-In-Chief admitted that "we have done things the American people don't know about".
The America-hating Progressive within him is just dying to break through, but the movement knows that the time is not yet ripe. In the book THE COMING INSURRECTION, the author(s) states that the Progressive power brokers must stay in the shadows, because once the light is shone upon them, their days are numbered. Obama's teleprompter is the caster of the shadows!
Remember the old party game JENGA? You have a tower of blocks, and the object is to pull blocks out of the tower without causing it to topple. Imagine that tower is our society...the Progressives are pulling the blocks out one at a time, while pointing out how the tower is still standing! "See? It's not so bad!" they say. With each block pulled, they brag about how their agenda hasn't caused the collapse of the tower like all the evil Republicans and Conservatives told you while sipping on their Slurpees.
But there will come a time when that tower collapses, and the Progressives won't be there saying "Oooops, ha-ha, they were right after all". History tells us what happens then...ask the Jews.

NPR = National Progressive Radio

With the acceptance of $1.8 million from far-left America-hating billionaire George Soros, NPR has officially cast it's net in the rank cesspool of multicultural Progressivism. Their first act, within hours of accepting Soros's blood money, was to fire liberal news analyst Juan Williams. Liberals threw one of their own, a black man with a Hispanic name, under the bus? Hardly a head-scratching moment, as President Obama has done the same thing to Reverend Wright and most of the far-left groups like Code Pink and ACORN who were driving forces in getting him elected.

This is merely the next salvo in the war against the Conservative values that made America so exceptional. Obama and the Progressives already have most of the mainstream media on their side, so now it is time to pick off the individual voices of reason within those left-leaning media organizations. I expect that fellow NPR jornalist and "Special Report" regular Mara Liasson is probably dusting off her resume right about now.

Call your Congresspersons and Senators, and DEMAND that they remove all public funding of NPR and its affiliates! DEMAND it, in the name and sanctity of the FIRST AMENDMENT.

The Language of the Left

Understanding the Left’s agenda requires understanding what they mean, not necessarily what they say. Actions have always spoken louder than words, and their actions of late speak volumes to those who take the time to honestly observe.

Their positions on issues are based on emotion, not logic or reason. Emotions, however valid or invalid, are fleeting in nature, and the solutions are generally more harmful than good. The primary tools of the Left are constant repetition of lies, mockery and derision of dissenters, deflection from an issue, and finally a re-definition of the terms that comprise the issue. These tactics are necessary because the Left’s positions simply do not stand up to the “smell test” of common sense. Since they are unable to articulate logical defenses of their positions, these four tactics are employed in common discourse.

When a politician screams that a tax cut is not paid for or will add to the deficit, do you realize what it is that they are really saying? They are saying “THAT’S MY MONEY”! They have already spent those tax dollars, even though you haven‘t even earned them yet to have had them taken from you yet! Taking less from YOU doesn’t add to the deficit, but spending it before they take it does.

Another of their favorite games is “CLASS WARFARE”…they talk derisively about tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, even though most of them fall into that category themselves. As of November 2009, 237 of our 535 elected lawmakers had taxable reported incomes of over $1 million…Charlie Rangel’s was obviously higher, but much of it was unreported. President Bush said it best…“if they [Congresspersons] don’t feel that they are paying enough in taxes, just write a check to the IRS”. But quit ramming it down the throats of those who actually EARN it.

9/11 + 9

While most bloggers, talking heads and media today are focusing on the 9th anniversary of the terrorist attacks, I am going to be a little different and focus on the role that the Twin Towers have played in most of our lives.

Some interesting facts about the iconic Twin Towers: a) The North Tower (with the antenna) was completed in December of 1970 and the South Tower in July of 1971. b) The material excavated from the site was used to build Battery Park. c) Electrical service to EACH tower was 13,800 volts. d) The "Windows on the World" restaurant on the 107th floor of the North Tower grosed $37,000,000 in 2000, making it the highest-grossing restaurant in the world. e) The WTC complex was so huge it had it's own ZIP code, 10048, still receiving about 300 pieces of mail per day.

f) The 44th and 78th floor "sky lobbies" were served by express elevators, and all floors between them by local elevators. This maximized the amount of usable floor space by allowing "stacking" of the elevators within the same shaft. g) The windows were only 18" wide, reflecting the architect's fear of heights. h*) Critics of the Towers called them "the boxes that the Empire State Building and the Sears Tower came in". i) Each tower had 3,800,000 square feet of office space. j) Eight floors of each tower (B6/B5, 7/8, 41/42, 75/76 and 108/109 were used strictly as mechanical space and weren't accessible to the public. k) The South Towers outdoor viewing platform, at 1,335 feet, allowed visitors a sight horizon of 50 miles in any direction on a clear day! l) On a typical day, 25,000 people worked in each tower, with another 200,000 visitors passing through.
m) Philippe Petit, a French high-wire acrobat, walked a cable between the Towers in 1974. n) Brooklyn toymaker George Willing scaled the South Tower in 1977. o) On Memorial Day in 1983, high-rise firefighter and rescue advocate Dan Goodwin scaled the exterior of the North Tower, a stunt meant to call attention to the inability to potentially rescue people trapped on the top floor of skyscrapers.

p) The PCA World Chess Championship in 1995 was held on the 107th floor observation deck of the South Tower. q) In 1998, Mafia member Ralph Guarino arranged a 3-man heist of a Brink's delivery that netted over $2 million. r*) In RUMBLE IN THE BRONX, a 1995 Jackie Chan movie, the Twin Towers are featured in background shots throughout. s*) 1986's movie F/X also featured the Towers prominently during a chase scene in lower Manhattan after Rollie steals his special effects truck from an impound lot. t) 1989's THE DREAM TEAM features Michael Keaton as a pathological liar, pointing to the Twin Towers, saying "You see those two towers? I was an architect working on them. First they just wanted wanted to build one, but I said 'Hey fellas, we're here--what the hell, let's just throw another one up.' Turned out pretty well, didn't it?"

u) 1981's ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK features Snake Pliskin (Kurt Russell) entering the Manhattan Maximum Security prison zone by landing a glider atop the South Tower. v) 1975's DOG DAY AFTERNOON features the Towers in the opening credits. w) The Towers also are seen in several scenes of both CROCODILE DUNDEE movies (1986/1988). x) 1987's WALL STREET, with Michael Douglas and Charlie Sheen features several lingering shots of the Towers, as well as the WTC PATH transit station. y) Macaulay Culkin takes a snapshot from the South Tower's outdoor observation deck during 1992's HOME ALONE 2: LOST IN NEW YORK. z**) The Towers are featured in a chilling final shot in Steven Spielberg's MUNICH (2005).

1,534 Years Ago...Are We There Yet?

September 4, 476...Romulus Augustus, the last recognized Emperor of the Western Roman Empire, was deposed by Germanic chieftain Odacer. This date is largely considered by most historians to be the actual date of the fall of the per-se Roman Empire. The date is considered arbitrary by other historians, since the legitimate and recognized ruler of the Eastern Roman Empire, Julius Nepos, continued to live in Dalmatia until his assassination four years later.
Many scholars maintain that rather than a "fall", the changes were more gradual, and can more accurately be described as a fundamental TRANSFORMATION, since the Eastern Roman empire, more commonly known as the Byzantine Empire, continued to thrive as a regional power until the fall of Constantinople in 1453. There is no debating, however, that the last time the Roman Empire was politically unified was until the death of Theodosius I in 395.

The building above is one of many reminders left by one of the FORMER MPNEs...Most Powerful Nations on Earth. Most who travel there to marvel at the Coliseum's architecture and how it has withstood the test of time, don't know the details (and LESSONS) provided in the paragraph above.

Rome was crippled by huge government bureaucracies, enormous public debt, a history of court favoritism, infidelity, exposure of unwanted infants, perverted bathhouses, and sexual immorality. The Roman Army, though militarily superior and marching on advanced road systems, were strained fighting conflicts worldwide, and eventually troops had to be brought home from the frontiers.

Rome had a trade deficit, having out-sourced its grain production to North Africa. When the Vandals captured that area, Rome did not have the resources to retaliate. The citizens of Rome were mainly immigrants (Visigoths, Franks, Anglos, Saxons, Ostrogoths, Burgundians, Lombards and Vandals) who poured in so fast they did not learn the Latin language. They were kept distracted with violent entertainment in the Coliseum and Circus Maximus, living on welfare and free bread, and one Roman commented: "Those who live at the expense of the public funds are more numerous than those who provide them." Tax collectors were considered by the Roman businesses to be "worse than the enemy".

The building above, although a marvel of architecture and historical significance, is much more than is a WARNING to the current MPNE to beware the path that you are on...I was there and this is all that remains.

Sociopath In Training

Find this SICK CHICK QUICK! Apparently, on her days off from school, she has a sick, disgusting way to entertain herself...she has someone film her throwing 6 puppies into a river.

There is a video available online, but I will not post it. I'm sure there are probably already thousands of copies of the link floating around the web-verse in angry E-mails between animal lovers.

It is hard to decide who is the sicker...her or the person filming this despicable act of inhumane indecency. Missy, you are indeed one sick young lady, and should never be allowed to bear children.

Off topic: Honoring a Music Legend

There are bands out there...and then there are BANDS! They clutter the airwaves, and in the post-grunge era, they all sound alike. But there is one group that is instantly recognizable, both vocally and musically...BOSTON...Whenever you hear a BOSTON tune, you just KNOW it's BOSTON!

From their debut hit MORE THAN A FEELING, to their last offering WALK ON, Brad Delp's voice screams "BOSTON"! I don't mean, in any way, to sell Tom Scholtz short...he is the wizard of BOSTON'S unique sound, but it was Brad's voice that captured a generation! I don't know why life got so bad that Brad felt compelled to take his own life, but I can assure you that a generation of music fans were saddened with this loss. Rest in peace Brad! Here is a clip of one of their more famous performances:

Economic Recovery?

Stacks of empty shipping containers tower above apartment buildings all over the country...why? They are perfectly good intermodal steel boxes, designed to transport manufactured goods around the world. They come into our ports loaded with everything imaginable, and shelves at Wal-Mart, Sears, Best Buy, Home Depot and the like are practically bursting with their contents. So why do they sit abandoned outside American ports? Because we have nothing to fill them with for a return voyage across the oceans! It is cheaper for the countries that STILL manufacture products for export to just make another one than to pay the cost for return of an empty.

We don't make anything anymore, except excuses, and those can be carried over the airwaves and internet by broadcasters and need for shipping containers, although the bullshit coming out of Washington DC could easily fill them all.

It's not President Bush's "failed economic policies" that have caused our tanking is the fault of liberal politicians, both Democrat and Replublican, kowtowing to union interests that have priced American labor out of the manufacturing game.

Steel mills in America, like this one in Steel City USA, that could be making these shipping containers sit abandoned because we don't make steel anymore. The people who used to run these machines either retired with pensions or became greeters at your local Wal-Mart, selling the products than come in from abroad in those shipping containers that were also manufactured abroad.

But leave it to American ingenuity to come up with a about a containerized, fully functioning plug-and-play data center like the one here? As long as we can keep Congress and the unions out of the Information Technology business, I can foresee an exploding market for this niche in the IT industry! Of course, the computers, server racks, cables and the other equipment within the container is still manufactured overseas, but at least we can use the containers that they built to our benefit.

Another great! Rather than waste billions upon billions of taxpayer dollars constructing and maintaining high-rise apartment buildings that become drug-infested projects, why not resort to a cheaper and more abundant source? Let's build container cities for the poor and homeless, and kill two birds with one stone! The obvious green effect of recycling these containers as well as providing for those who can't provide for themselves should have Liberals practically orgasmic! Instead of taking from the wealthy, let's take from the countries that are kicking our economic butts!

So, America....when Congress starts debating economic reform by padding union pension accounts, take into consideration the motto of the Chief-Of-Staff for the Obama administration...never let a crisis go to waste...especially the ones that we have created!

My Observations Regarding...

The following text comes directly from the website of a self-admitted Conservative Black woman, whom I know to be articulate and thoughtful. It illustrates the complexity and breadth of the issue of race relations in America.

"Can it now be stated that since the United States has a Black President, that Black America has been paid for the injustices that have done against them for hundreds of years? Is it now time for the black race to issue a pass to the white Americans that enslaved and robbed us of land, families, knowledge of self and pride as to who we were and where we came from. Has the time come for Black America to now look at the White Race as a whole and say that I trust you with my life and my future along with the rearing of my children and to say thank you for beating my ancestors into submission to accept a new way of life that you have now subjected our people to?"

These are the talking points of the IDEOLOGY OF DIVISION that "faith pimps" like the Reverends Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Jeremiah Wright use to pump up their bank accounts while doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING with regard to the issues that separate Black and White Americans. To them, and groups like the NAACP, the goal is all about "being paid", rather than acknowledging equality. As long as racial tensions exist, they have relevance and continue to "get paid".

These Black Liberation Theologists have put a nonspecific and fluctuating "price tag" required for racial reconciliation that can NEVER be met. Therefore, the majority of Blacks will ALWAYS see themselves as the oppressed and will NEVER be satisfied with ANY current state of affairs as they stand. Therefore, the only status quo that the so-called Black Equality groups are concerned with is maintaining a racial divide to perpetuate their media relevance and income stream.

What has happened centuries, or even decades, in the past cannot be undone. The only solution is within one's in INDIVIDUAL SALVATION. God's forgiveness is absolute, but the desire for it must be absolute as well. It cannot be conditionally based on any external factors, whether past or future. The Lord's Prayer asks each of us, as INDIVIDUALS, " forgive MY trespasses, as I forgive those who trespass against ME".

The key to it all is in there...God's forgiveness of you isn't conditional on what ANYBODY ELSE has ever done to your ancestors, and NEITHER SHOULD YOURS! What happened back then is between our ancestors and God. Only in that moment of epiphany that EACH of us, regardless of our skin color, realize that our individual lives and salvation IS IN OUR OWN HANDS, and not based upon any repayment, reparation or whatever you want to call it, can we all progress towards living together in harmony.

Madam President?

Fox News Analyst Dr. Monica Crowley suggested over a year ago that the ONLY one who can replace the First Black President is the First Woman President. In a nation known for it's Firsts, what could be more appropriate?
Notice how quiet Hillary Clinton has been lately? She is keeping her head down for a reason, and that is to determine which way the wind is blowing with regards to popular (or more likely, UNpopular) opinion of the current administration. I predict that, after stinging Democrat losses in the House and Senate this November, Hillary will resign as Secretary of State and begin her campaign to replace President Obama. She will take advantage of the fractures within the Democratic party and try to bring the base back towards the center.

Yes, folks, it is going to be Hillary vs. Sarah, battling for the White House in 2012. But it is going to be more than just the Presidency at stake...they will be vying for the future of our Republic, *IF* it lasts that long.

I qualify that prediction, not because I have seen the movie "2012" or read the prophecies of Nostradamus, but because of the QUITE VISIBLE agenda of the Obama administration to do whatever they want, regardless of the will of the people! They will dictate that Arizona can't enforce Federal Immigration Law, yet leave the Sanctuary Cities, who openly flaunt their disdain of those same laws, unprosecuted.

I qualify that prediction because I have read the Progressive Playbook, and I understand that the "tipping point" of anarchy is dangerously close.

Occam's Razor

Back in the 14th century, Friar William Seach of Ockham put forth a simple theory--"entities should not be multiplied beyond necessity". Put in simplest terms, the explanation with the fewest assumptions is usually the correct one.

I have personally used Occam's Razor in many cases, most notably while debunking the 9/11 Truther theory that the September 11 terrorist attacks were an inside job. What is more likely, after all?
A) Our oversized government, headed by the biggest moron on the planet, with it's notorious inability to keep secrets wired the Twin Towers and WTC #7, the Pentagon, AND a remote field in Pennsylvania with explosives, spirited away 208 passengers from 4 different aircraft at 3 different airports, wired those aircraft to be flown remotely, faked thousands of cell phone calls from those passengers, and then orchestrated everything that happened?
Or B) Our oversized government with it's myriad of alphabet agencies with their turf battles for taxpayer money and splinters of intelligence failed the American people?

How about more recently? Is it possible that:
A) The most unqualified and Liberal President ever elected has INADVERTENTLY surrounded himself with known Communists, Socialists and Marxists, has MISTAKENLY acquired control over most of the American economy, and is UNINTENTIONALLY shredding our Constitution.
Or B) A young, articulate man of color, with a hazy background and history of association with 60s radicals, with a Black Liberation Theology pastor as a mentor, is orchestrating the collapse of the American capitalist-based Republic for the purpose of a "FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION" as HIGHLIGHTED STEP-BY-STEP in the Progressive Playbook pictured above?

It's time to start eliminating the assumptions. Barack Obama has never been shy in admitting his desire for FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION. He has also never shied away from admitting his desire for REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH. Michelle Obama has also stated that "for the first time in my adult life, I'm proud of America". Now why would you want to fundamentally transform something you cherished and held dear? That's like making your son go through a sex-change operation because you wanted a daughter!

Yes, candidate Obama promised us change. Unfortunately, too few of you out there asked "change to WHAT?" I pray that you do your homework, put the puzzle pieces together yourself, and ask if any of it makes sense. If it does make sense, then you probably deserve to be a slave to government. If it doesn't make sense, then let's start taking our country back in November and FIRE CONGRESS!

Progressivism and Black Liberation Theology

As I delve deeper and deeper into the substrata of the numerous issues facing Americans today, my research takes me to some strange places and even stranger ideas. Many of these "issue paths" lead into dead ends, but every now and then I travel down a road that sheds some bright and very disturbing light on things.

My recent research into the century-old American Progressive movement, as well as into today's active players, has brought me onto what I will refer to as A-HA Boulveard! Many things are becoming clearer and clearer now.

BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY is a doctrine that suggests that the GROUP salvation of the oppressed (Blacks) can only come at the expense of, repentance by or conquest of their oppressors (Whites) rather than INDIVIDUAL salvation through faith in God and Jesus Christ. Theologian James Hal Cone, the acknowledged founder of this movement, argues that, "We cannot solve ethical questions of the twentieth century by looking at what Jesus did in the first. Our choices are not the same as his. Being Christian does not mean following 'in his steps.'" Cone also suggests what must occur if there is not reconciliation by the White community. He states, "We can be certain that Black patience has run out, and unless White America responds positively to the theory and activity of Black Power, then a bloody, protracted civil war is inevitable."
The most visible example of a Black Liberation Theology Pastor? Reverend Jeremiah "God DAMN the U.S.A.!" Wright.

Like their Progressive counterparts, this totalitarian groupthink mindset MUST trump all; without exception, there can be no individuality accepted. What about Blacks who disagree with the tenets of the Black Liberation Theology? Ask Project21 member Deneen Borelli, a Black conservative and member of the Tea Party...she says in a recent AOL BlackVoices interview that she's been called an "oreo" and an "Uncle Tom."

Ms. Borelli believes that there would be more black people at Tea Party events like the April 15th tax day protests if they weren't so afraid of the backlash they would receive from family and friends.

The conjunction of these two philosophies comes in the form of President Barack Obama. We all know that the President was a member of Reverend Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ (TUCC) for over 20 years, and that he referred to the Reverend as his "mentor" in matters of faith. We know that he distanced himself from the Reverend and TUCC after videos of some fiery and racially-charged sermons came to the forefront. But can one distance themselves from something that was drilled into the fabric of their being for 20 years?

President Obama has never been shy about his socialist agenda, specifically through FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION of America via REDISTRUBTION OF WEALTH. In office, he has surrounded himself with numerous "czars", many having Marxist, Communist or Socialist backgrounds and beliefs. Van Jones, Cass Sunstein, Valerie Jarrett, Rahm Emmanuel, etc.

President Obama's recent appointment of Healthcare Czar Dr. Donald Berwick HAD to be done during a Congressional recess in order to avoid those pesky confirmation hearings. Why? In Berwick's own words, " must, MUST, be redistributionist in nature."

The playbook is out there for all to read, folks...Saul Alinsky's RULES FOR RADICALS, and it is being followed step-by-step. Believe it or not, IT IS NOW ON THE REQUIRED READING LIST IN MANY HIGH SCHOOLS, which in itself is another page out of the RULES FOR RADICALS playbook.

Coming Next - Is there a "Madam President" in our future?

Battling Progressivism

Progressives seek the complete and utter destruction of the American system and way of life in order to create "a non-racist, classless, feminist socialist society". (I'm directly quoting the Socialist Party USA statement of principles.)

You might ponder--Socialism has been tried time and time again and has always failed. Why would anyone believe that it would work here and now? Progressives believe that they have learned the mistakes of the past Socialist societies and can get it right this time. They believe that constant tinkering with a failed idea will somehow fix it, rather than tinkering with a successful idea to make it better. There is a major flaw in their belief which I will highlight shortly.

Even as a distinct minority, they are succeeding! How can 1% or 4% or 7% of the population manage to co-opt the larger percentage of Americans? By piggy-backing on the Liberal agenda, they support the goals of and give credence to every minority fringe group. They hope to maintain and/or gain the votes to keep the balance of power tilted towards ever-increasing the size and scope of Government until it inevitably collapses under the crushing burden of debt. However, Progressives and Liberals differ in one way...Liberals believe in the elimination of failure by punishing success, whereas Progressives believe that elimination of success will, by default, eliminate failure.

The ONE major reason why Socialism will NEVER work is not American, or European or Asian in nature, but HUMAN nature! I call it the JURASSIC PARK theory. In that movie, there is a sequence that shows a goat being lowered into the Tyrannosaurus Rex paddock in order to coax the T-Rex into view. One of the scientists says something along the lines of "no, that won't work...T-Rex is a hunter! He doesn't want to be fed!"

Humans are the same way! The will of mankind to create, to achieve, to overcome, to succeed at something, at ANYTHING is in our DNA! In the 1950s and 60s, it was asked "Why expend the time and money to send a man to the moon?"

The American answer? "Because it's there!" The Socialist? "Because the Americans want to go." But what if there was no America?

Coming next...Identifying Progressives.

The Perversity of Progressivism

I detailed in my previous blog how the Progressives were using a methodology of forcing acceptance of perversion on society called THE OVERTON WINDOW. Progressives are the TRUE danger to society, and have been putting the pieces of America's downfall in place for almost a century now.

A BRIEF HISTORY - Woodrow Wilson started it all with the first progressive income tax (Revenue Act of 1913) and the 17th Amendment to the Constitution, which basically removed the power of the individual States to control their representation in Congress and placed it in the hands of Washington lobbyists and political power-brokers.
FDR furthered the cause of the Progressive Agenda with the federal spending on the NEW DEAL programs during his four(!!!!!) terms as President. Harry S Truman and Conservatives fought back and won a small battle in the bigger-government culture war by ratifying the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution limiting the Presidential reign to 2 elected terms.
The mainstream media, as well as our higher education system, began their radical leftward shift in the 1960s during the Viet Nam conflict and the "don't trust anyone over 30" drug-hazed counterculture.

What do Progressives want? In summary, quoting from the Socialist Party USA Statement Of Principles, they "strive to establish a radical democracy that places people's lives under their own control - a non-racist, classless, feminist socialist society...for democratic revolutions - radical and fundamental changes in the structure and quality of economic, political, and personal relations..."
The Progressives are a distinct minority in this country, yet their agenda is succeeding. How? First, by gaining elected office. They are scattered throughout Congress and the Supreme Court, and now the Presidency. Second, by controlling the mass media and entertainment industries. Third, by controlling the higher education system.
The key to the whole thing is Liberals...they think a lot like Progressives, they just don't want to take it as far...if they do, they lose their power! Progressives know that Liberals can take our society, our way of life, to the brink, but don't have the stomach for the necessary (sorry, Tony!) revolution. The Progressives are just waiting for us to get to the brink, then they will eat the Liberals up and spit out the carcasses as they shove us into a very dark abyss.

Next blog: WHAT CAN WE DO?....coming soon!

Progressives and the Overton Window

The Overton Window was originally postulated by the former Vice-President of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, Joseph Overton (1960-2003). Most commonly used to demonstrate political spectra, it can be geared to accommodate ANY desired methodology. Basically, it is used to depict what any given society deems acceptable at any given time. Over time, the position of the window over that defined spectrum shifts based on popular plurality.

Progressives have long understood that on any given issue, they are a clear minority. However, by supporting multiple minority far-left positions, they have shifted the window of public acceptability, as well as government intervention, into areas that would make our Founding Fathers and our grandparents roll over in their graves.

A majority of the population, both Liberal and Conservative alike, support the legal definition of marriage as the lifelong union of a man and a woman. Progressives, however want to go much further, into the realms of polygamy, bestiality and worse. By merely suggesting this major shift to the left of the Overton Window as it applies to human relationships, as a society we have accepted a lesser leftward shift into forced acceptance of homosexuality.

Discrimination laws used to protect those in a minority class that had no choice in being members of that minority class. Race, gender, ethnicity, physical handicaps and even to a degree, religion, are classes that deserve government protection in society and the workplace. But now we have entered the realm of government intervention into personal choice by establishing perversion by choice as a protected minority class.

Emboldened by this success of the minority over the majority, the Progressive agenda has now managed to score recent additional victories. Government takeovers of the banking, automotive and insurance industries against the wishes of the majority of Americans have succeeded, and now our government is taking over the health care industry. The energy industry is next, especially with the furor that has been created over the Deepwater Horizon oil-rig tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico.

Fundamental transformation of the greatest society in history..."Yes, We Can!" But should we?

Why The Political Vitriol Exists

The question was posed to me earlier, "Why do Democrats so outwardly despise those who disagree with them?" I don't honestly believe that it is a political leaning from one side of the aisle in Congress or the other, but more from an ideological standpoint than anything else.

As a Conservative, I believe that most who share my mindset tend to see things in black and white, right and wrong, polar opposites so to speak. On an intellectual level, we can justify our beliefs based not only upon experience, but an a + b = c type common sense! Logical arguments tend to frame our debating points, and it frustrates us to no end that liberals just can't seem to grasp any simple concept.

Liberals, on the other hand, approach issues from a deeply emotional perspective, one that is rooted in a standpoint of "how does this issue make me feel about myself?". Liberals see the worst in everyone who doesn't feel the same way about a particular issue that they do, even if its another liberal they disagree with!

Conservatives have the benefit of history on their side, and the Liberals are slowly overcoming that by re-writing history to conform to their own bigger-government agenda. Conservatives have the benefit of logic on their side, and unable to put forth an intelligent counterpoint, Liberals will resort to name-calling or branding. Conservatives believe in setting the bar of personal achievement high, that overcoming failure to achieve success is a necessary builder of character. Liberals believe in lowering the bar to a level that eliminates any failure whatsoever.

Pick any topic du jour...abortion, gun rights, illegal immigration, or homosexuality, and you can bet that argument is framed on the Conservative side with careful thought and concern for the majority, whereas the Liberal side are based on self-centered emotion. Anyone who believes that abortion is wrong is labeled a misogynist, or worse. Believe that every American has a right to own a gun and the liberals cry about bloodshed staining the streets of our cities and towns. If you support illegal immigration enforcement and securing the borders, then you are a racist! If you don't believe that one who practices sodomy for pleasure should go camping with your 10-year-old son in the Boy Scouts, then you are a homophobe.

The primary problem with the emotion-based arguments is that emotions are fleeting and ill-defined, whereas history is there for all to see and learn from. But don't waste a lot of time trying to convince a liberal of that...they will simply rewrite history and redefine the terms of the argument.

Word of the day...

Anosognosic: It is a hypothesis that suggests if the individual pictured is too stupid to realize that the hat he is wearing has a visor designed to shade his eyes and all he has to do is turn it around, then he is too stupid to REALIZE that he is too stupid!

This describes liberals perfectly! They are too clueless to realize they are clueless, much less the depth of their cluelessness! They are protected from their incompetence by the incompetence of those they surround themselves with.

The exact opposite of this is METACOGNITION (thanks to Tony Venuti for introducing me to the word). Metacognition deals with the concept of knowing that you know. For example, I know that 2+2 = 4, and I also KNOW that I know that. I also don't know the square root of 271,441 at the moment, but I know that I can get the answer as well as how to get it (521, by the way).

The problem with liberals is PSEUDOCOGNITION, which is knowing that they feel and feeling that they know. This is the root of their arrogance, which they display daily via the C-SPAN Networks!

They feel that they know how to run a business better than a businessman or run a military at war better than a general. They feel that they know YOUR pain, YOUR hardship and and how to run YOUR life. Let me ask Barney Frank or Chris Dodd when the last time was that they had to skip a mortgage payment in order to keep the electricity on. Let me ask Nancy Pelosi when was the last time she had to cut back on groceries in order to put gas in the car.

These people are NOT the real danger facing America...they are merely the tools being used by the Progressives in order to facilitate the radical transformation of America. Unless we Conservatives come out of the woodwork and drop our apathy, it seems that Ronald Reagan's words of caution to us will come true: "When we forget that we are one nation UNDER GOD, then we will truly be one nation GONE UNDER".

Playing The Blame Game

Here it is folks, the cause of childhood obesity!!! Much like blaming pencils for misspellings or guns for killing people, here is the latest attempt to shift the focus away from the root cause of the problem...lack of personal responsibility.

I remember as a kid tossing a box of Lucky Charms into Mom's shopping cart and slipping the Cheerios back onto the shelf. Not only did the Lucky Charms taste better, but there was a toy inside those boxes as well! Crackerjacks was a favorite snack of mine as well, and GUESS WHAT...there is a prize in each box of them as well. Like all kids today and throughout history, I preferred the stuff that tasted good over the stuff that was good for me. It had nothing to do with a damn toy!

I was always an active kid...playing kickball, hide-n-seek, baseball, and even a game made up by the neighborhood kids called "Scalp-Em", a crude combination of Red-Robin and Smear The Queer (oops, we can't use that word anymore, either, but that is a topic for another blog post).

THIS is the cause of childhood obesity...lack of pure physical activity! We put TVs, Playstations and Nintendo DSs into the hands of our children to serve primarily as an electronic babysitter. They sit around for hours trying to unlock the secret code that will get them additional powers and advance to the next level. When stuck, they TXT a BFF on their cell phone, or post an update to their MySpace page to get help.

I don't see a whole bunch fat kids zipping around skateboards or kicking out some eye-opening tricks on their bicycles. No, the fat kids I see around here all have one thing in common...their chubby little faces are generally poorly illuminated by a television or handheld video game screen.

Standing By Your Word

Way to go, New Jersey Governor Christie!!! Unlike Bush #41, when you said "NO NEW TAXES", you meant it! I am across the river in Pennsylvania, but I admire the dedication and fortitude that you are demonstrating to your electorate as well as the liberal lawmakers that pollute your State House and Senate. I hope that your fervor in standing by your campaign promises spreads out to the rest of those running for office across this great land.

For those of you not in the Garden State, Governor Christie recently vetoed a budget bill that would place a 2.5% income tax "surcharge" on individuals making over $1,000,000 annually. The estimated half-billion dollars would have been used to close fiscal shortages on numerous entitlement programs within the state. It doesn't matter what it's called, or how the liberals try to sugarcoat is SOCIALIST REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH.

Governor Christie has already been pilloried and vilified in the NJ media for forcing the cities and townships of NJ to make the tough choices and cut spending. The Democrat lawmakers are already proclaiming him as "protecting the millionaires" by vetoing this bill.

No, he is protecting EVERYONE who earns...once you Democrats learn that tax increases on the wealthy inevitably spread to the rest of us, maybe you will be able to understand this simple concept. History shows that I am likely to be wrong.

Perception is Reality? Apparently, so is MISperception!

I had a customer yesterday who came into the store, practically in tears. Now, as a PC technician, I see this frequently from professionals when hard drives crash or their computer gets a virus. However, this customer was a different sort altogether!

The sweater didn't hide the bright orange shorts with the owl logo that so many fans of a particular restaurant immediately recognize. So she hands me her laptop, and says "it is a piece of crap, fix it". Well, having graduated high school with a GPA in the high 3's, I immediately recognized the difference between fecal matter and a laptop PC, so I gently corrected her..."Ma'am, this is a pretty expensive laptop computer, sort of a Mercedes among Yugos...what exactly is the problem with the computer?"

She composed herself enough to say, "Well, every time I turn it on, there's this voice coming out of the speakers and it is driving me nuts! And it is slowing everything down too! I can't even use this for my schoolwork!"

Immediately recognizing the initial problem as the Microsoft Narrator, I assured her that I could "shut the computer's voice up" in no time at all! I clicked on the EASE OF ACCESS CENTER, selected MAKE THE COMPUTER EASIER TO SEE, and unchecked the little box next to RUN NARRATOR AT STARTUP. I said "OK, that should silence your little problem. Is there..."

"Can you restart it just to make sure? I paid a lot of money for this computer and just haven't been able to use it!"

"Why, most certainly!" I responded, selecting RESTART from the start menu options. The computer restarted quickly and with no annoying narrator giving a play-by-play of each active window.

"Oh, wow, that is AWESOME!" she said. "I've spent hours on the phone with someone who I couldn't understand, and have sent this thing in for service twice and nobody could fix it! You are AMAZING!" She slid me a coupon for a free order of hot wings, grabbed her PC and practically bounced out of the store, exclaiming how she couldn't wait to get back home and start using her expensive computer. I reminded her that we were there for her at anytime in the future, should the need arise.

Amazing? $40 and a plate of wings for 5 minutes of work...I guess you could call it that. :) Oh, and I foresee more visits from this particular customer in the future.

I guess the moral of the story goes something like this: If you try to use a tube of caulk to pound in a nail, you're probably going to think that hammers are pieces of crap and the salesman who sold it to you is a moron.

My Lone Follower Is Now Gone!

I got the news today that a great friend, great person and my lone Blogspot follower Mike Netherland has passed away. Mike and I were friends in our high school days in Vicenza, Italy and touched bases with each other again during one of the fabulous VAHS all-year's reunions. We discovered that we had common passions in both conservative values and writing...although he far eclipsed me in the latter category, he became my lone follower here and provided me with humorous feedback on my relatively rare, but quite eloquent, blog posts.

To Dianne and the rest of the Netherland family: No amount of condolences are sufficient in this case, but you can rest assured that Mike was a great man and will be sorely missed by anyone who ever knew him...especially this old high school buddy. Best wishes to all in this difficult time.

Rest In Peace Buddy!

Pre-State Of The Union

I am guessing that Obama will blame Bush or mention "inheriting" the economy 19 times

Tuesday, January 19, 2010


I am gleefully watching as the Massachusetts Special Election results roll in, and hoping that the DC Democrats are soiling their shorts! In the three elections since November 2008, the score is American Values 3, Socialism 0. I hope that President Obama's speechwriters and teleprompter programmers are losing a LOT of sleep today with regards to the upcoming State of the Union speech.
