America: In God We Trust?

May 5, 2011

I recently watched, one more time, the movie, Ten Commandments.  There is one scene in the movie that has repeatedly come to my mind over the last year.  When Moses parts the Red Sea and all the Jews cross safely to the other side, and the Sea falls back into place the Jews  finally feel free and safe.  Moses goes up into the Mountain at which time he sees the Burning bush and God gives him the Tablets with the Ten Commandments engraved on them.  While Moses is up in the Mountains the saved Jews below, in their over joyous mood, because they escaped from the land of the Pharaoh’s, work themselves up into a frenzy.  The mood among the Jews  goes from happiness to joyous to sinful erotica.   They build pagan Gods to pray to.  They dance in a very uninhibited manner, partake in orgies, drink themselves into a stupor, start praying to false Gods, lose all inhibitions, forget who led them to the promised land (God) and turn away from God.

In the movie version of the Ten Commandments, which is a story taken from the Bible, the Jews, man, lost his way and God was not pleased.  Those who did not repent were banished to hell, those who repented were saved.  And life went on.

Now, Two thousand years later, in America we are seeing a replay, so to speak, much like the movie version, and very much like the story in the Bible, but in some respects it is playing out in many different ways, our country is in total chaos, but the underlying theme of Godlessness, is still there.

Society has changed.  Many no longer value themselves, have no self respect, have no morals, have lost compassion for their fellow man, and have become selfish, and self-serving.

It is apparent in our leaders, like Congress, who have an uncontrollable appetite for more money and power.  They have no qualms about walking over one another to climb the ladder of success.  The President had no reservations about throwing his party’s members under the bus, for not voting his way on the Health Care Bill.   Our leaders believe they are above the law and openly break them.  If they have money and power they do not suffer the consequences of breaking the law.   Did Charlie Rangel ever relinquish those HUD apartments in New York or lose his seat in Congress?

These same ugly excuses for human beings spew hatred against law-abiding citizens.  They call Patriotic Americans “Astro-turf”.  Look whose calling whom “artificial.”

Many of these Congressional leaders call Tea Party people Racists.  They make deals under the table and get rich on our time and buck.  These bloodsuckers have no ethics, no honor and no humility.  They are truly un-American. 

Our Congressional gold-diggers are like the people in the movie, Ten Commandments; they have lost their way and it doesn’t look like they are about to change for the better, anytime soon.  They have taken American history out of school books.  they have taken the Ten Commandments off the walls of our court houses.  They have taken over almost every sector of our society and turned it into a government entity.  They have promised the poor a better life, so that they will vote to keep them in office.  This will change, once they get what they want, which is a weak America, where the citizens do what they are told.

They have decided the elderly are of no use any longer, and it’s not because they are old, but because they are smart and know what the leaders are up to and would stand in their way.  Those seniors, Congress wants to get rid of, with their “Death Panels” are the only people holding this country together.  Once they are gone, so is America. 

Americans have lost the one thing that made America great; “In God We Trust”.  They have lost their faith, they have turned their backs on God.  ss

National Protests by Obama Union Backers

March 9, 2011

This Nationwide protesting by the Unions and thugs backed by leftist, Political organizations is just the beginning and to be honest it’s one hell of a beginning.  As soon as Spring hits us and then Summer, look out.  I have been saying for the last year that this coming Summer is going to be a hot one.   I truly believe we will have major protests and possibly riots.

Then, especially if it’s a very hot Summer we could end up with things being so bad that the Big “O” will send in the new National Police force to implement Marshall Law. 

Sadly, the Tea Party and the Conservative Right, have hibernated for the Winter, and not done much, if anything.  I guess they think because they won the election the game was over.   It’s not that simple.  The game, and it is a game, to the Elitists in DC, they have a never-ending hunger for more Power and Money, and they will never be satisfied, no matter how much they have.

I don’t see any of them spreading their wealth.  That task is left for Middle America to do.  For the life of me I just don’t understand why Americans still don’t get it.  I know some of them do, but it’s not enough.  They all need to pay attention and the sad fact is that those who don’t pay attention don’t have the time because they are too busy trying to survive or stay afloat a little longer.  They just don’t realize why they aren’t getting anywhere.  It is almost to the point that those who are unemployed are so deep in debt that they will never be able to get out. 

Patriotic Americans need to Wake Up and Stand Up for their Constitutional rights.   It’s amazing to me how the leftist media and the Congress are for arming the rebels in Libya, because they stood up in a peaceful manner to get Qaddafi out of office, yet they call the Tea Party People who have stood up for their rights as Americans, racists, radicals, domestic terrorists and Nancy Pelosi’s favorite, astro-turf.  What hypocrites they truly are.   ss

Huckleberry Finn Historically, Politically Correct

January 6, 2011

I read an article online today about some guy who is re-writing the book Huckleberry Finn, because he does not like the use of the “N” word in it.  While he is at it he wants to take out the use of the word “injun”.  It seems he (some self-appointed Politically Correct Gestapo type) doesn’t like what happened or what was said way back then.  So, he’s just going to re-write the whole book and take out what he considers the “bad” words.   Just who is this guy?  Why should I care?  Well, this moron thinks that he can change history by removing words from the pages of books.   

Well, you cannot change history.  But you can change the present and that’s what knowing about history is all about.  You see what was said and done long ago and what you didn’t like about it and then you change those things that still exist by doing so in today’s world.  We learn from our mistakes or those mistakes in the past. 

The man who wrote the piece was pointing out how wrong it is to think one can change history by erasing the facts.  I happen to agree with him. 

Huckleberry Finn and all the other books that were written way back when should be left as they are.  It is time the teachers in school do some teaching.  As painful as hearing words like the “N” word including numerous other words, the events and language of historic times must be taught to our young so that they can learn from it.  It must be taught to our young so they know and learn to understand how these words from the past have affected people over the years.  It is time for students to understand how things use to be and how much they have changed and improved.  It seems that society has come to the point where it is all right to re-word books just because some self appointed, Politically Correct idiot thinks it should be done.  Just who are these Politically Correct, self-appointed police?

 Before we re-write great books about our history, it would be nice, in my opinion, if the Politically Correct people went after the Record companies of Today and stopped the use of the “N” word in the songs that the rappers sing.  These Politically Correct people need to go after the Black comics that think it’s all right for them to use the “N” word because they are black, therefore giving them license to do and say things that are insulting to their own race.  Now, I’m not being racist by saying this but I find that very few White people, comedians etc. have the guts to use the “N” word because they know and you and I know that they will be black balled (no pun intended) from ever working again and that’s only after the Black community publicly chastises them.  Well, the Black community must stand up to it’s own and stop them from using these words and phrases.

 If things are to change then change them in today’s world when and where they are being said, sung and written about.   Leave the letters, books, poems and songs from historic times alone.  It is a fact that they were said and used in those times.  One cannot change what has already happened, it’s history.  Learn from it. 

Stop these same words from being used today, by the young, in their songs and in their stand up comedy routines.  You cannot erase History, once it has happened. 

You can prevent the use of today’s bad language from becoming history in the future by preventing the use of these words in today’s literature, songs, and comedic routines.  This is where the correction should be made.  It is true that one needs to learn from History and many do not.  You can’t learn anything from reading about the past if you are not reading the Truth as to what was said and done so long ago, which is why you can not take the words off the pages of historic literature, which was written at a time when those words were “Politically Correct” and act as though they were never said.   ss

Obama: Divide and Conquer

August 11, 2010

“I don’t want to pit Red America against Blue America. I want to be President of the United States of America.”

Barack Obama, speech, Nov. 10, 2007 

How can a man who said these words, who professed himself to be the “One” who would unite America, end up doing just the opposite, and in a very big way.  I always believed that actions speak louder than words and yet, with Obama it has always, only been words.  Pretty words, sophisticated words, meaningful words, well written words, by someone else, words he has read, not words that he meant or words that he truly believed in and in the end, it has only been empty words, nothing more and nothing less; just words. 

I have compared the words, someone else’s word, that Obama has read in speeches, and though they have a certain meaning, a certain ring that cannot be ignored, those beautiful words, that so many rave about, I have concluded that they have no meaning for the man, President Obama, who claims to own them. 

I can sadly say I have seen the results, not of his words, but of his actions and have seen no proof that he has attempted to unite anyone who would normally disagree.  I have seen no effort on his part to unite, but have seen a deliberate, constant and on going attempt on his part to divide, and he does it well. 

So, I sat here today and just wrote “words” that in my opinion represent the actions that President Obama has used not to unite but to divide Americans.  He has, in my opinion, promoted hatred, racism, and distrust among the following:

 Black vs. White                                                          America vs. Israel

Haves vs. Have Nots                                                America vs. China

Gays vs. Straight                                                        Legals vs. Illegals

Hispanics vs. Whites                                                 Blacks vs. Hispanics

Overweight vs. Thin                                                  Socialism vs. Free Enterprise

Family vs. Family                                                      Jews vs. Arabs

Young vs. Old                                                              Muslims vs. Christians

Small Business vs. Big Business                            America vs. Britain

Unions vs. Non Union                                               Mexican Gov. vs. Arizona

Educated vs. Uneducated                                        States vs. States

Americans vs. Wall Street                                       Federal  Gov. vs. Arizona

Democrats vs. Republicans                                    Oil vs. Green Energy

Non-Global Warming vs. Global Warming       Democrats vs. Sarah Palin

Democrats vs. Glenn Beck                                       Democrats vs. Tea Partys

Democrats vs. Democrats                                       Fed. Judges vs. Voters

Good vs. Evil                                                               Obamacare vs. American People

He has pitted people against people, Americans against Americans, Religions against Religions, States against States and Countries against Countries.   He has actually done in the real world what most people only read about in books “Divide and Conquer”.  

There is one campaign promise he did keep, he definately brought “Change” to America!

My question is,  “What the hell are we going to do about it”?  ss

Will Obama, Step Up And Secure the Borders?

May 13, 2010

I have been watching Cable news for the last few days and am quite upset with what is going on in response to the new Arizona Immigration law.   Obama preempted Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s scheduled press conference last week, where she was going to announce her decision to sign the new Immigration bill into law.  In his speech, at a naturalization ceremony for 24 members of the military, Obama made the following statement about the Governors decision to sign the Immigration bill, “Our failure to act responsible at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others. That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona, which threatens to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe”. 

I cannot tell you how upset this President has made me.  Then I think who am I, that he should even care what I think?  My answer, to myself, surprised even me.

I’m a Patriotic American citizen, President Obama is supposed to “REPRESENT” me.  He is supposed to “PROTECT” me, as an American citizen.  He is supposed to be “HONEST” with me.  He is supposed to “LEAD” the American people.  He is supposed to be “PROUD” to be the Commander and Chief.  But what has he done?

He is more interested in “DIVIDING” than he is in “UNITING”.

Obama has been more interested in “REPRESENTING FORIEGNORS” than the people he was elected to represent.  He is more concerned with “PROTECTING” the rights of Illegals, than he is at protecting the LIVES of Americans.  He is more interested in “LEADING” the Global community than in Leading Americans according to the Constitution.  He is more “PROUD” of being Black than he is at being part Black and part White, a fact that he could have used to Unite Americans.  He seems to have forgotten that he is both Black and White.

His thinking is Racist, yet he constantly accuses others,  “Whites” of being racist.  He is more interested in driving a wedge between Blacks and Whites than he is in bringing the Country together.  Consider Martin Luther King, Jrs. words  I have a dream that my four little 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”. 

Yet, Obama has, with his comments about the new Arizona Immigration Law, deliberately misled all those who believe in him as a leader.  He has divided the American people.  He has convinced them that the new Immigration Law is Racist, that it involves racial profiling, even though, it plainly states in the Law that no racial profiling will be tolerated, it is prohibited.

He completely avoids mentioning that the new Immigration Law in Arizona was passed to help protect Arizona residents, Hispanic and White, from drug dealers on killing sprees, and from Kidnappings that have been in so many numbers that Arizona is second in the World, only behind Mexico City as the Kidnapping Capitol. 

He has refused to do anything to help these people,  American citizens, White, Black and Hispanic, who are legally here, by continuing to build the Wall, which was started a while back, to help keep the majority of Illegals out of the country.   He refuses to secure the Borders.  Foreignors do not belong here unless they come in legally.  It’s the Law and Obama has no interest in enforcing the Law.   Now, why is that? 

Why would the President of the United States of America not give a damn about protecting the American people?  Maybe some news media person might consider asking that question, that’s if there are any left who actually care about reporting “NEWS”.

Obama has, because he knows that he has the “power of words”,  used those words, to encourage  those, many who are Illegal (and as far as I’m concerned, do not have the right)  to march and protest in our country.  He has welcomed their misconception of what is a right of an American citizen, and what, if any, are the rights of visitors to our country, much less what is the right, IF ANY, of an Illegal alien, in our country. 

I can assure you that Illegals DO NOT have the right to demand that America changes it’s Laws to satisfy their wants and needs. 

No President, no Czar, no Congressman, no Illegal, and no misguided American, can tell me that it is “Illegal” for me to demand, as an American citizen, that the Law of the Country, my country, be enforced and “NOW,”  and if I know anything, I know this;  that it is “My” right to speak out.   ss

Why Is Detroit, Michgian 80% Black?

May 4, 2010

I read a question on line today and decided to write about it tonight.  The person writing the question asked “Why Is Detroit, Michigan 80% Black?  Then went on to say, that she thought it was because of Racism.  I did not agree so I chose to answer her question.

Yes, Detroit is black, but it’s not because of racism, it’s because when the industry moved out, the whites moved north, following the corporations that located in the northern areas of Detroit, like Southfield, then Troy and Sterling Heights.  The blacks chose to stay, many because they didn’t have the money to move, or already had a job and stayed to keep it, maybe to only to lose it later.  New industry came to town, like the Casinos, but not enough jobs with it. But racism, I don’t agree.  Just because Detroit is mostly black doesn’t mean it’s because of racism. It’s because they chose to stay when most others left. 

People who think alike, many times, come together and live in a certain location, city, neighborhood, it’s their comfort zone.  America has a long history of immigrants that came to this country and often they moved into the ethnic sections of a particular state, or city, or neighborhood, representing their culture, language, and religious beliefs and based many times on weather, or geography, like what they were used to in the old country, and sometimes it was because of the type of businesses in the area, similar to their interests.  The problem, (now, this is my own opinion) is with cultures and ethnic backgrounds and how they interact with others of different ethnic, or cultural backgrounds. The problem is a lack of education and interaction.

 As an example, Arabs are and always were considered merchants (groceries, tailors, today many are gas station owners) the Jews were more intellectual and were teachers, accountants, lawyers, doctors, and the Irish were farmers, when they came to America, these are the fields they prospered in back in the old country, so they continued in these fields here.  Many of these groups started communities on the Eastern coast and they became small cities with schools and churches revolving around their particular culture. 

In Dearborn, Michigan and the surrounding area there is the largest concentration of Arabs outside of the Middle East and certainly not because of racism.  It initially started because of the Rouge Plant and Henry Ford looking for more workers.  Today, the Arabs have a thriving community, they have businesses, and their children go to school.  One thing I can say for them is that they do make an effort to get an education.

 Everywhere Arabs go in this country they know that Dearborn is the Mecca here in the USA for them.  For the Arabs, Dearborn would be a place where they could go and live (comfort zone) in a strange new country and feel like they belong.

But it is still not because of racism.

They came to Dearborn because it was America the land of the Free, and because they could get jobs there, they came in droves.  They have stayed and made a new life for themselves.  They made the effort.  The Arabs came to America because it was their idea to come here for a new beginning, a job and Freedom.

Now, we have the blacks, whom were brought here as slaves, mostly in the south and lived on plantations, and though many men were involved with planting and harvesting, and learned farming techniques, and many women and girls did cooking and housekeeping there was one thing that was lacking, in there day to day routine and that was an education.  Many plantation owners forbid them to be taught how to read.  It took a very long time in this country even after they were freed for blacks to get a proper education and even today they are still fighting to get a top-notch education.

The difference between the Arabs and the Blacks who came to America, is that the Arabs chose to come here.  The Blacks were at a disadvantage from day one, because they were forced to come here.  So, where the Arabs had their lives in their new country all planned out, the Blacks were slaves, at someone else’s beck and call.  They had no plans, nothing to look forward to because they were forced to come here.  

It seems that they were always kept down.   And when the blacks saw no hope for themselves, many turned to selling drugs, or other illegal activities and actually made good money.  Others feeling that the government owed them because they didn’t do enough to help them, decided hand outs were the answer and they could get along with, Hud housing, food stamps, welfare, Medicaid, so why would they need to work?  This has been I feel the worst example of how to live in America that any parent could possibly hand down to their children, because it has continued on and on and on with no light at the end of the tunnel for the parents or their children.

These handouts from the Government have made many blacks think that there was no reason to get a good education because the Government would take care of them. Some would continue to try, work hard and get an education, then be held back in the workforce.  It all comes down to what Society thinks and what they expect from you, no matter what your race, ethnic background, or age is. 

It is hard to rise and shine on a personal level when you have society working against you.  Many years ago Society worked against the blacks, purposely.  In the last 40 years or so, society has tried to make up for their lack of effort in promoting education for the blacks, and have passed laws to enforce equal educational opportunities for all Americans, black, white, Chinese, Hispanics, but it appears that many of the blacks have given up. 

It takes an individual with a lot of drive, energy, motivation and guts to break out of a box devised by a system that expects you to be so-so, or one way when you aspire to be great, or another way.   It also takes a few generations of blacks who are educated to promote a positive self-worth belief, an energetic, goal oriented attitude in their young, in order for them to be able to break out of the downward spiral their lives are heading in, to enable them to look upward and climb to new heights, in their lives.

Sadly, the conditions now in this country are near the bottom or beginning for many blacks and they need to start again from square one.  Only now it will be even harder, because of the economic conditions in America there is no money to invest in structuring an educational program whereby the blacks can catch up.  Every time we turn around Congress, or State Legislatures are taking money from the Education fund to pay for their pork barrel projects.  

For the time being the Government is offering college and training for some of those who are unemployed but it’ only in certain fields and it might not last much longer. 

The Government is going forward with more handouts to a group of people who actually believe that now, they will be able to afford the things they always wanted, but couldn’t afford before and that somehow the Government will pay for it.  Well, this will not happen.  Again, the establishment is fooling them, because now, we have the Hispanics coming into the country, and when they are given amnesty they will not be the lowest on the totem pole.  The blacks will remain there.  There will be more Hispanics in America than blacks.  They also have and will have the jobs, minimum wage, maybe, but it will be the jobs that the unemployed blacks and whites would have had initially just because they were Americans. 

So, it is up to the black people to change their way of thinking and as hard as that might be, I can only tell you from experience, that you should never allow anyone else to keep you down.  You should never give up on being whatever it is you want to be.  You need to take some responsibility, much of the responsibility of educating yourself, by reading as much as you can, about everything that interests you.  Read books about the field or job you want to go into.

Read books about famous inventors like Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, or Einstein.  Read books on American History, The Founders who wrote the Constitution, and about the Civil War, and stories like Huckleberry Finn and Sam Houston.  

Study math, science, and probably one of the most important things you can do to give yourself a boost is to learn another language and 3 of the most important languages to learn are Arabic, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese along with learning English. Any one of these three languages as a second language, could open many doors for you when you graduate from high school and/or hopefully college.  

There is nothing more important than a good education to get you where you want to go.  Nothing more self-satisfying than having a head full of knowledge that is there at the drop of a hat when you need to use it.

 The world is changing; don’t believe false promises from anyone.  Do it yourself.  You can learn a lot from books, movies on the History channel, even movies at the show.  Learning can be fun, especially if you make it into a game where you can be the winner.

 I’m sorry this was so long, but I truly feel that a child can take his education into his own hands as long as he is given some encouragement from his parents and/or caregivers, and/or teachers.  You are never too young or too old to learn, but it will always be up to you to start the process and keep it going, until you get to where it is,  that you want to be.
