Why everyone is in a panic right now

 

Nobody is in an uproar over the use of chemical weapons in Syria by either side. Everybody knows that the contending factions are ruthless. It’s how they do business.

Everybody is in a panic because most everyone believes that President Obama is stupid enough to actually engage the military on the behalf of our enemies. Either that or they realize that he is dedicated to the destruction of the United States and if he can use the military to help accomplish that mission, he’s going to. The Communist movement in the United States has been in support of the overthrow of President Assad from the very beginning of the Springtime for Jihadist.

I mean really, who cares really what happens in Syria?  They are brutal barbarians and they have been killing each other for thousands of years.  What is happening today is really no different than what was happening back in biblical times.  Well, there is a little difference… Russia and China are backing the rightful President of that country.  Our bombing Syria and attempting to overthrow that country will put us directly at odds with Russia and China.  Not only can the combined power of those two countries bring our American economy to ruin, but they have a considerably more military power than we do.  This action that Obama is attempting could very well bring us to ruin through a World War III.

On a slightly different note.  I don’t really care about the end.  I have read that last book in the Bible and I kinda know the story already and I have made my peace.  So bomb Syria and bring it on early… or wait.  It doesn’t matter to me.  What really tweaks my nerve is the double standard that the liberals seem to live by.  I was watching CNN this morning and they were all up in arms because they “felt” that if Obama  went to Congress and asked for permission to attack, (like he is Constitutionally required to do) then Congress wouldn’t support him and would just might deny him his declaration of war.  (See my last post about GW Bush).   Anyway, the liberals are all frazzled about the “use of chemical weapons” in Syria saying that there “are thousands dead.”   I have one thing to say to those liberals.  Why don’t you take care of home first.  Look  to Chicago, New Orleans, East St. Lewis etc. at the innocents that are killed.  Also if you are wanting to bomb another sovereign country to “stop the slaughter,”  then please look at Mexico.   The corruption is rampant and the Cartels are killing thousands of innocents each and every day.  Civilians,  women and children are dying every day and no one in our government or in the media is saying a word.  It is a travesty of justice.  No one even cares, especially our President.

Fifty Years…

 

This is the 50 anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a dream” speech.  Obama (our President) is giving a speech later this evening to high-light this historical event.   I haven’t heard or seen the speech, but I think that if the good doctor King could hear this speech, he would be rolling over in his grave.  Obama has taken the good words and intentions of Dr. King and perverted them into something  very different.  If you listen to the King speech, he says that every person is created equal, and that no man should be put above another.

What should we remember on Martin Luther King Day? In his “I Have a Dream” speech Dr. King said: “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

This statement means that in judging other men, skin color should be ignored–that it should not be a factor in evaluating their competence or moral stature. It follows that skin color should not be a factor in taking actions toward other people, e.g., hiring and admitting to universities.

What has happened in the years following King’s murder is the opposite of the “I Have a Dream” quote above.  Dr. King’s fantasy of a colorblind America has now has been replaced with color preference in the form of affirmative action.  No amount of rationalizing can disguise the fact that affirmative action involves implicit or explicit racial quotas, i.e., racism.

In the days of racial injustice of 1964, Dr. King simply wanted peace,  an end to the violence, and an end to the divide.    Since this President has taken office,  everyone (even liberals) have to agree, that the racial divide has broadened exponentially.   When the Travon Martin tragedy took place,  the President stepped in.  He had an excellent opportunity to heal and mend racial tension.  Instead he broadened it with the speech about “horrible tragedy, if I had a son, he would look just like Traavon…”   In the process he actually incited a multitude of black on white murders.

In the time Obama has been in office, he has advanced affirmative action and race based preference.  The illiteracy rate in Detroit has exceeded 47%.  The murder rate in his home town of Chicago has skyrocketed,  and the family unit has utterly dissolved with the illegitimate childbirth rate at 78%.

Yea, I’m sure that the good Dr. King would  never have consented to anything this dark and insidious to be supported with his speech.

So, when you celebrate the wonderful works of the late Martin Luther King, or celebrate the actual MLK national holiday, (and every day),  we should focus on the proper antidote to racism and the proper alternative to racial thinking: individualism. We need to teach our children and all our citizens to look beyond the superficialities of skin color and to judge people on what really matters, namely, “the content of their character,” (and not on what our President may claim).

The Thin Red Line

 

Back in the day when George Bush was our leader, we had issues with people in the Middle East.  It was much like today with Syria.  It seem that our current leader has issues with people in the Middle East.  President Obama has gone on record saying that “we will not allow weapons of mass destruction to be used” on the people of Syria.  He went on to say that if this were to happen,  it will be “the Red Line” that cannot be crossed.  The zealots on Syria has indeed called his bluff and used poison gas on the citizens.  Now it seems that our President has been backed into a corner.  In order to not show weakness, he feels he must act.

Today while watching CNN the talking head reported that the proposed start of this engagement would be by four navy destroyers in the area that would “soften up” the opposition with cruise missiles.  Then our President, in conjunction with talks with Secretary John Kerry, would play it by ear.

Does this rub anyone the wrong way… or is it just me?   I mean when it was George Bush going against Saddam Hussein the liberals were frothing at the mouth about the evils of going to war.  Even today, ten years later, the hatred for George Bush is boundless.  But to set the record straight,  when we went to war in Iraq, things were pretty well planned out.  George Bush first talked to Congress and got a vote for a “use of force action” against Iraq.  President Bush then went to the UN and got a buy in from the other countries and formed a “coalition” to assist us in our invasion.  Obama has done none of this.

Obama has simply stated that “this is a line that cannot be crossed” and went on to unilaterally declare war on Syria.  And now I sit here listening to the second most liberal news network on the planet talk about going to war with Syria like it’s just another Miley Cyrus video.  Where’s the outrage?  Where’s the hatred?   The double standard is infuriating.  Don’t get me wrong.  I am a rabid “war protestor” myself.  I was against the war then and I’m against it now.  I don’t want to be misunderstood.  I have a son in the Army and I don’t want him to get killed for some useless war over nothing more than sheer politics.  If North Korea were to send troops and invade our Western Coast, heck yea, I’d be out there fighting right beside them.  But to send our American troops to die in some flea bitten, worthless stink hole simply because some politician might look bad is an atrocity.

Rodeo Clown Speaks Out

Rodeo Clown Has Gotten Five Death Threats From Obama Leftists

Coexist?  Really?  Not so much.Coexist?  Really?  Not so much. 

 

 

Missouri state fair rodeo clown Tuffy Gessling has had his life threatened five times by the  ‘Peaceful Obama supporters’ and has had one spit in his face.  Nowadays, in the post Zimmerman fallout,  I would take the death threats seriously. 

I would go armed… But then I’ve already said that

I’ve had one lady spit in my face, called me a dirty name, spit in my face and walked off,” Gessling said.

And he says there have been five death threats.

“I’ve had somebody threaten to run me over. One of them wanted to burn the house down,” he said.

Gessling says that the incredible overwhelming hate heaped onto him was  actually what finally brought him out to speak.

“I didn’t do this to prompt any hating on anyone. I did this to be funny. I did it to be a joke,” Gessling said.

Gessling said the clown act has been around for generations.

“I didn’t think anything about it.  I mean, no more than what we’ve done 15 years ago, ten years ago, five years ago, when we’ve done it with Bush, Clinton and Ronald Reagan, and no one even cared… apparently now is very different.”  Gessling said.”

Air Force Hosts Drag Queen Performance For ‘Diversity Day’

 

 

Yep, I knew that the Air Force was the least manly of the services…  but this story is shameful.  And to think that my nephew was actually wanting  to go to the Academy.  I am now proud that he has changed his mind and decided to stray from this perverted group.

LOS ANGELES, August 23, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Jewels and the Brunchettes, a drag queen group of entertainers, were invited to perform at the Los Angeles Air Force Base on August 8 as part of a “Diversity Day” celebration, according to Fox News. Fox News’ Todd Starnes reported that three individuals dressed in drag were featured in a musical performance that sparked outrage among some military personnel, who called the performance “totally offensive and inappropriate.” Photographs of the event published by Fox show an individual wearing a giant wig performing to an almost non-existent audience sitting beneath the American flag… FULL STORY 

From Al Gore to Al Jazeera

 

brother

It’s not easy to stand for freedom of speech, especially when you don’t like it.

Today, Al Jazeera America — an international organization funded by the Middle Eastern country of Qatar — was added to channel lineups in 48 millions homes across America. That’s 48 million Americans who now have the choice to watch Al Jazeera America, if they find it to be a channel that represents their values.
We believe in more voices, not less. We recognize TV providers’ right to make Al Jazeera America’s programming available to anyone who wants to watch it. We think it’s great to have another voice in the national conversation.

But what about something for those whose values don’t align with Al Jazeera America? What about the people across the country who have spent countless hours on the phone asking their TV provider to add something, God forbid,  a little more conservative.  All national television providers have done away with conservative shows.  Shows like the Rush Limbaugh show,  the Shawn Hannity show, the Glenn Beck show, the Mike Savage show, to name a few that have been removed from television by the liberal networks.  Yes we are still allowed to see Fox news,  that is, if you are willing to pay extra for the “premium channels.  

All I’m asking for is a fair and balanced showing of the news to be a part of the conversation. I’d like for the TV providers to give the customers the CHOICE of watching anything that is not parched out with a decidedly liberal slant.  

This isn’t about shutting down Al Jazeera, I believe in freedom of speech.  I just would like to see this as yet another news network being added on the left side of the political spectrum, while everyone who identifies as libertarian or conservative still has no place to go.

With the departure of Walter Cronkite,  the mainstream media has always been slanted.  No one simply gives the news anymore.  There is always an agenda.  

Al Jazeera is not only radically liberal, it is anti-Jew, anti-Christian, and anti-American and it is getting a free ride into the homes of every American.  They have taken a huge portion of that oil money and spent it on their own network.  Even if they had zero viewers, they don’t even need advertising to keep up. Advertising competition is not even an issue.  So far the only issue is has been getting the message out.  They have spent untold Billions in getting the right people to advertise.  The other day I saw John McCain doing a spot extolling the virtues of Al Jazeera television.  Really!,  I mean,  this once great man, a war veteran,  is now hocking himself for his Arab masters.  Shame. 

I don’t know where this will ever end,  but I do know that it can’t possibly end well for the Americans that still have values.

“Well, You Might Be a Liberal”

 

foxworthy1

  OK, enough of this serious stuff,  I mean, heck,  it’s my first day back from vacation!   Why so serious on the first day back?   I haven’t the foggiest.  So to lighten the mood, I  got these jokes for ya. 

In the spirit of Jeff Foxworthy I’ve got a few “you might be a Liberal” jokes.

 If your Merlot comes in a 25oz glass bottle but won’t allow your kids to buy a 20oz Diet Coke, you might be a liberal.

If you believe that children can’t bring cupcakes to school, but it’s OK for schools to take your child to an abortion clinic, you might be a liberal.

If you oppose capital punishment but support abortion, you might be a liberal.

If you think the independent minds of an all volunteer military are brainwashed by the “conservative machine”, but the turds of the occupy movement who think life owes them a free house, food, college, & medical care aren’t… Well,  you might be a liberal.

 If you think its okay to claim you support middle America, but you willingly give jobs to  illegal aliens over American Labor because it’s cheaper, you might be a liberal.

 If you think stopping Canadian oil from coming to the US by protesting the pipeline is better than Canada shipping it to China is “a good thing,”  you might be a liberal.

 If you cheered when a reporter threw a shoe at Bush, but you booed when a reporter threw a tough question at Obama,  you might be a liberal.

 If you go to a dinner and pay several thousand dollars to listen to the President complain about the wealthy not helping the poor, then you might be a liberal.

 If you hate capitalism but expect a capitalist to provide you a good paying job with great benefits, you might be a liberal.

 If you never feel shame for taking from others without their permission,  you might be a liberal.

 If you believe executing guilty murderers is wrong, but executing the innocent preborn is right, you might be a liberal.

 If you think the Republicans are waging war on women while you ignore how Muslims torture and kill women for “honor,” you might be a liberal.

 

Well, that was fun.  If you can come up with more, feel free to send them in.

Obamacare Provision: “Forced” Home Inspections

 

tyranny

 Yesterday I wrote about the ever expanding tyranny of what we use to call, America.  Now the new Obamacare has new provisions buried in it that were ratified, voted on, passed by Congress and signed into law by the President.  Now we have it.  I have said before that the people of Germany in 1938  were smart  democratic liberal thinking people who thought they were doing the right thing.  We are there now.

“We have to pass it to see what’s in it” – Nancy Pelosi.

“According to an Obamacare provision millions of Americans will be targeted. The Health and Human Services’ website states that your family will be targeted if you fall under the “high-risk” categories below:

Families where mom is not yet 21.

Families where someone is a tobacco user.

Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities.

Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States.

There is no reference to Medicaid being the determinant for a family to be “eligible.”

Constitutional attorney and author Kent Masterson Brown states, “This is not a “voluntary” program. The eligible entity receiving the grant for performing the home visits is to identify the individuals to be visited and intervene so as to meet the improvement benchmarks. A homeschooling family, for instance, may be subject to “intervention” in “school readiness” and “social-emotional developmental indicators.” A farm family may be subject to “intervention” in order to “prevent child injuries.” The sky is the limit.”

Obama Clown

Oh I see, bad when it is Obama, good when it was Bush. If the rodeo clown would have had a Bush mask, there would not have been a peep.

What is happening to our country. Missouri…shame on you.

The Missouri State Fair on Monday imposed a lifetime ban on a rodeo clown whose depiction of President Barack Obama getting charged by a bull was widely criticized by Democratic and Republican officials alike.

The rodeo clown won’t be allowed to participate or perform at the fair again. Fair officials say they’re also reviewing whether to take any action against the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, the contractor responsible for Saturday’s event

.

The entertainment during the bull riding contest featured a clown wearing a mask of Obama with an upside down broomstick attached to his backside. Spectators were asked if they wanted to see “Obama run down by a bull.” Many in the audience responded enthusiastically.

Numerous Missouri officials denounced the act after video and photos were posted online. Some Democratic Missouri lawmakers suggested Monday that there should be financial consequences for the fair. A bit thin skinned Obama supporters don’t ya think?

A Rodeo!   This is the red-neck mecca.  I’d be surprised that anyone hasn’t made an Obama joke there.  This is where political correctness goes out the window.

With Chevy Chase making a career out of making fun of Gerald Ford, then Regan, then the Bush family.  Every day there was some Bush joke out there.  Most  of them were very derogatory… like comparing him to a chimp.  Now a “rodeo clown” can’t make a joke about our current president?  This tells me just how far down the rabbit hole towards tyranny our country has really gone in the last few years.
