The Fallacies That Guide Us

Distribution of wealth! Well guess what? All Americans are in the top 1% of the world. It sure is going to be a rude awakening to obama voters who think that he is going to give to them and that they are going to live larger than they are now. We are financially tapped as a nation and he borrows and steals to give more money to other countries, many who don't even like us! What's his plan? Not to protect our Constitution or our country. His anti-colonial, Agenda 21 goals are quite apparent to anyone looking......

On Obamacare, I Won't Comply

This isn't a classroom. The thought was there and we got it. But if it made you feel better.......
It is in America, that the buck can stop at each one of us to succeed or fail according to our own measure. We have the freedom to choose, at least for now and it's not up to the government to waive rights or responsibility according to it's exploitative need.
Equality is something that mankind needs to work on minute by minute. But, equality isn't giving waivers to some and making others adhere to the letter of the law. Equality is the same law for all people. Equality is the same opportunity for all people. All people were created equal, made in God's image and deserving or equal respect and rights. Even those that take the talents and opportunities that are provided and make a success of themselves. Even those who's ancestors took the talents and opportunities provided and were able to pass on the outcome to their offspring. It's in the outcome of those folks that we see the hope of doing the same thing if we work hard and take the initiative to do so.

A Historic Debate Failure

Keeping in mind that the rest of the world is watching, I really dread the Crazy Joe debate. The man is just one more global humiliation brought to you by the folks who brought us obama.

Harlem Then and Now

A couple of years ago, HGTV did a series on Harlem and how many of those folks with ties to Harlem were going back and renovating the neighborhoods of their early years. It was really wonderful what that program showed. I haven't been watching that channel lately, and I don't know if it would do any good if I did, but I do hope that this movement is continuing. It was a really great show.

The Immigration Ploy

I do worry about people whose 1st act in this country is illegal. Legal migration is not easy but right.To give special consideration to those that come here illegally is an affront to those that have toiled to come here legally. We might also understand that these 'children' have been raised by parents that believe that there are good reasons to pick and choose which laws they are willing to abide by and which they will not. This doesn't bode well for the health of this nation. We have bad traffic coming across the southern border. It is lawlessness on many levels and bad attitude as well. We have seen by all of the concessions that are demanded of us by these people, that they are not here to assimilate, but to invade and conquer.

When policy changes with the wind, and by one person, it is getting way too close to the form of government that our founders left. These founders sacrificed a great deal in order to set up a society free of this kind of leadership and under their direction and the foundations that were set then, we have prospered like no other nation. We have, through motivation and innovation both received and been a blessing to the rest of the world. And now we find ourselves, not moving forward, but falling backward. Some people call it hope and change, some people call it socialism, some people call it progressive but mankind has seen it all before.

The Invincible Lie

You couldn't have said it better. Economic Growth has nothing to do with sending more money to Washington so that it can be distributed to fruitless endeavor. The government assuming the word "spend" when talking about allowing someone to keep their own money, is saying that our money is theirs to "spend" and that they will decide how much of it we get to have. This is not the free enterprise that has prospered not only America but the world through it. And the said part of all of this reteric is that the amount confiscated from this 'wealthy', will do very little. The motive isn't to help America's economy, it's to appeal to those that see wealth as evil. "Thou shalt not covet" doesn't appear to be read or understood by this facet.

Obama's Stump Speech Myths

To the right of this box is a headline that reads, "Gallop Poll: American Confidence in Television Media Hits Historic Low." But, as long as they throw words out there, the words will stick with some. Especially when those words align with those that they want to believe. Throw in freebies, (again, whether they really materialize or not) and the ignorance of those that won't look past the front page of the Enquirer and you will understand how this guy became President and how he has a chance now.
