The Obammy Whammy

I know...

Let's print money like it's going out of style, give it to government agencies to increase the power of government, and beg foreign governments to borrow it.

Then we can tax the hell out of businesses to make up the deficit.

Yeah, that sounds like a plan.

Sure it does.

If you're insane.

Ten things that Christian Conservatives and Ron Paul Libertarians Can Agree On!

Help me out folks. I have discovered the following three political realities:

1. There are a ton of Christian Conservatives who are no longer happy with the Republican Party and are not actively participating.

2. There are a ton of Libertarian Conservatives who are no longer happy with the Republican Party and not actively participating.

3. In the meantime, Democrats are registering more Democrats and taking our country faster and faster toward Socialism.

My question is simple. Christians and Libertarians have far more in common than they either group has with the current Democrat Party.

Can all of you brainstorm with me to come up with 10 practical objectives that Christian Conservatives and Ron Paul type Libertarians can agree on?

I'll start.

#1 - Eliminate the I.R.S. by implementing a flat-tax, national sales tax, fair-tax, etc.

You can comment here or on Digg. Thanks.

Yes I am a Coward. Or at least I am as defined by Eric Holder. I personally see no reason to discuss race in my daily life as it has no real bearing on what I do day to day. I have friends of all persuasions, including race, religion and sexual orientation, and my opinions of them as a person has nothing to do with their outward skin color.

The same can be said for my daughter. She is in third grade. Though she happens to be Chinese, as she was adopted from there, she is most undoubtedly American. But she has had to suffer personal attacks lately from the boys in her class. You see she has the physical Asian trait of height, or lack there of. So they call her ‘short stuff’, ‘shorty’, or ‘shorty pants.’ Even though she doesn’t like it, as adults we can see this for what it is; the typical games of young children in the initial throws of elementary school courting. In other words, the boys like her. What should be noted about this story is that the boys in question are Black and Hispanic. Race is irrelevant to the situation. The lesson learned in this observation of childhood attics is the omission of color as a basis for opinion about people. They have the innocence of youth, and as such, have not formed or been influences by the issues of race.

Imagine if these children could hold on to that innocence throughout life. Some people have argued that we should not teach (talk about as Holder would say) children about the racial atrocities of the past so that they do not develop impressions and stereotypes from that influence. Looking at my daughter’s class, there is something to be said for that. If these kids could grow up without the daily bombardment of government mandated thought and segregation by way of classifications, the blitzkrieg of sensationalized media stories trying to build ratings, or the historical opinions of the older generations from their parents on up, we might be able to actually break the cycle of racial conflict. Obviously, this is not possible, but it show where we could start.

Holder is missing the point. It is not that we need to talk about race, it’s how. Today, the authoritarian stormtroopers of political correctness have created a society of wimps. Whites are in fear of saying anything that can be construed as racially insensitive, in that they are immediately labeled a racist and sent to training camps on multiculturalism. Or worse, jail. Holder and his ilk are the reason WHY there is no conversation. It’s too dangerous. But if we really wanted to have those conversations, then the whole body of preconceived notions and racial stereotypes have to be on the table in a free and open roundtable, devoid of retribution.

Since Political Correctness makes that impossible, we are left with NOT talking. But that can be a good thing depending on how we do that. Look at government forms or applications. What if the Race field was removed or replaced with a single category, Human. What if we stopped talking about Hate crimes and started talking about Crimes. Murder is hate by definition regardless of black on white, white on black, or within our same race. What if we stopped promoting racial division in the media for the sake of the almighty dollar and what if everyone took a moment to unwind their internal racial sensitivity alarms, so that comments could be taking at face value before an army of incensed bureaucrats descended on the scene for political gain.

The comedian Chris Rock had a comment in one of his spoken songs I think we could all live up to. “If you go to a movie and someone steps on your foot, LET IT SLIDE. Why spend the next 20 years in jail, because someone smudged your Puma”. Mr. Holder, with his increased commitment to politically driven enforcement, is creating even greater division and mistrusted. If each race could take the time to look each other in the eye, shake hands and LET IT SLIDE, the destructive sectarian conversations from the likes of Holder would be moot.

American Liberals Want to Confiscate Wealth

It is with regular occurrence, think tanks, like the Brookings and the Urban Institute, produce charts, graphs and policy statements demonstrating the decay of the American educational system. Though I usually agree with the findings portrayed, the state of the educational system is not the theme of this blog. It is the outcome.

For privacy reasons, I will say that a friend of mine attends a well known university in my area and is currently enrolled in a liberal arts disciple. One that caters to a more liberal-minded cliental. During a particular class, certain discussions have come up and the dialog of the attendees has come to my knowledge. It is without a doubt some of the scariest banter I have heard from young adults looking to be the next leaders of our world. All that I can say is, yes our educational system is broken. There is no chance that these students attended, much less passed a high school history, government or economics class.

Suffice it to say that the students are in their mid twenties, as this is a graduate class, and are liberal in ideology. Even worse, the professor, the guiding hand in the subject matter is by far the most appalling. The class itself deals with poverty, its causes and how might government be used to remedy the “injustice.” In listening to the comments of the class, it was the very first topic that nearly sent me sailing out of my chair, dropping my plate and spewing a soda from my mouth. According to the professor, and the agreement of the class, it is the role of government to bring equality to all people through the use of socialistic political principles and a communistic establishment of common income across all job categories and skill levels.

Yes, I know, calm down. It only gets worse. The problem with this approach, as described by the class, is that establishing a single income will bring equality to all, but it neglects to remedy the unfortunate situation of Wealth. You see, a horrible injustice has occurred due to free market capitalistic programs. People have actually been “allowed” to save, invest, or inherit money. This, you see, has allowed people to “earn” money without work through dividends and interest. It is this Wealth that must be corrected. To that end, it is the role of government to confiscate personal wealth and property, redistributing it for the good of all. As you pick you jaw up from the floor, you have to ask, “How did these seemingly educated people ever learn this from our education system?” You really have to wonder how a class on the revolution and the founding fathers led those people to these conclusions.

Yet, it is the opinion of the professor and the class that government has failed in its central mission, its primary purpose for establishment, that government must be the arbiter of equality and fairness. As convoluted as that logic is, they expand on this idea by discussing the disgraceful history of America and our abandonment of the founding principles for which this country was created. I don’t know about you, but I must have slept through that part of American History. Of course the founding of the Republican party is primarily to blame for our current situation, but it is the “spawns from hell” known as Libertarians that riles the attendees into a frothy blather of fascism. How dare someone actually believe in the “individual.” Accordingly, we are to learn from this seminar that uniformity of belief and adherence to a common humanistic goal of selflessness, in support of the people, is true enlightenment.

One of my favorite comments deals with poverty. I have been schooled by this professor and come to learn that America has more people in poverty than any other country in the world, including China. Wow, who would have every guested that our entire population is below the poverty line. I suppose those evil rich people don’t actually exist. What really astonishes this class is that people actually believe this statistic to be false. I guess they learned math from the same professor as Nancy Pelosi.

As idiotic as these comments are, it is one in particular that makes me ferociously angry. It seems that immigration is a right, but even so, why would people want to come to America? Supposedly, we Americans have been lying to the world. We have misguided untold numbers of poor and disenfranchised people, leading them to believe America is the home of the brave and the free, a place of opportunity, and more importantly, of Hope. Unfortunately, the reality is there is no Hope. It is a pipe dream, a method of control by the wealthy elite to indoctrinate the immigrant into a life of servitude, for the benefit of the rich. Thank God, (oops sorry, can’t say that. Obviously there is no God) Thank the Reasoned attending that class, who have come to understand the reality of the world and will work to end wealth, money, and opportunity in the name of equality for all.

Their belief is strong, their desire is set and their Messiah is in office. “He will change the world, He will correct the abomination on the Bush presidency, He will bring a socialist eden to our shores, He will make the government work the way it was intended.” I think it is time to be very afraid for our future.

Obama's Conversion to Christianity

Just in case some of you actually still believe that Obama is a Christian:

"I didn’t become a Christian until many years later, when I moved to the South Side of Chicago after college. It happened not because of indoctrination or a sudden revelation, but because I spent month after month working with church folks who simply wanted to help neighbors who were down on their luck – no matter what they looked like, or where they came from, or who they prayed to. It was on those streets, in those neighborhoods, that I first heard God’s spirit beckon me. It was there that I felt called to a higher purpose – His purpose. "

At my church we would say "he's as lost as a ball in high weeds".

Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
