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

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

Freedom; A Gift and a Curse!

December 30, 2010

I have decided to comment on a subject my friend Brenda brought up on her blog. 

Borrowing a quote from Brenda’s blog referring to Judge Henry Hudson’s remarks in reference to passage of the Health Care Bill and the FCC passage of the new Internet law.

 Brenda stated that “In just one month, a federal judge has ruled that the Commerce Clause cannot be stretched to cover absolutely everything the Congress wishes to do, and a chorus of limited-government voices has noisily protested the Federal Communications Commission’s attempt to assert control over the Internet.”

I agree with Brenda and the fact that she pointed out what this particular Judge said.  I agree with Judge Hudson, but it seems that those in the process of overtaking our government have deliberately ignored the courts.

 Americans better get off their duffs.  There is no more time to waste.  Americans need to stop complaining and actually do more to stop the “Fast and Loose” dismantling of the US Constitution, by a bunch of “In-House” what I would refer to as, domestic Terrorists, called Congress.  While “We the People” go along and file our objections and motions in court and bring people together from across the country (Tea Party) to stand up in town squares and talk about the Constitution and our Freedoms and the purpose of making sure that they stay in place, stay in affect, for generations to come, basically doing what is our God-given right to do; the enemy, our elected officials (our doing) are moving forward at warp speed in their quest to destroy America before “We the People” can stop them. 

They are succeeding and why, because while “We the People” are filing objections in court, and even winning, these pariahs are ignoring court orders, as though they have that right, and just continue on, like a child, daring a parent to “Stop me”, as they laugh out loud.  But a child does not understand what he is doing, he does not yet know “right from wrong” he is still innocent.  These elected officials (Make no mistake about it) know exactly what they are doing.  It is up to each and every American to do what ever it takes to stop them, before it is too late and believe me it is “Late”. 

Late, though it is, it is never too late to try.  There is always “Hope” and as long as there is “Hope” then there is a chance to succeed.   Americans should realize by now, that nothing is a sure thing, even the Constitution, unless there are those who will stand up and are willing to fight to protect it from all those who wish to destroy it.  It is our “Destiny” to stand up and fight to keep our God-given Freedom; it is our duty.  

Freedom is America’s gift to the world.  People risk dying, trying to reach the land of Freedom and equal opportunity.   No other country in the world has the Freedoms that America promises to its citizens.  Yet, at this point in history, Americans have taken those Freedoms for granted, and it has taken a very long time for many to realize that they are at the brink of losing those Freedoms.  It is time that they realize that within our own country there are those out there in the real world wanting to take those Freedoms away from us.   It is hard for Americans to believe that any American would do such a

dastardly thing, but it is their way of accumulating more Wealth, Power and yes Freedom for themselves.  Why do they think they have this right and why are they doing this?  It’s a simple reason, “Because they Can”!  No one has stopped them.   In America you have the right to accumulate Wealth and Power, but not at the expense of depriving others from doing so.   Hey, it all comes down to Money and Power.  Has anyone ever asked to see the stock portfolios of our elected officials to see how much “Insider Trading” they have done while they were in office?  If, before voting on a bill a Congressman buys stock in a company knowing if the bill is voted into law, that it will move the value of that stock in that particular company and he makes money on this investment, then I would consider that “Insider Trading”.  Has this been done?  I think it’s time to find out.  I suspect that this has been done quite often.  Of course, if this has happened it would be a faster way of getting people out of office then waiting for the next election and more damage to be done to the Constitution.

 It is time for America to stand up for the gift our founding Fathers promised them.  It is time for America to stand up and defend their God-given right to protect those Freedoms.  It is time to stand up or shut up and by doing so, watch those Freedoms taken away from us.  Certainly fighting in a court of law is the right way to go about keeping our Freedom, but the evildoers are now among those in the legal system.  So, now we must gather in great numbers to voice our distain for those who try to steal away our God-given right to be Free.  It is time to replace all those who want to destroy the greatest gift of mankind, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

 We need 10, maybe 20 or more Million people to stand up along side the “Tea Party” people and join them in trying to stop the destruction of the most powerful words written on any piece of paper in the World, the American ConstitutionWe are off to a good start, but there is “oh, so much more” that needs to be done.  Americans should never believe that one person can not make a difference, that one person can not “Change” what is wrong, because all it takes is the right person to come along and speak the truth, and others will follow. 

 It is a well-known fact that bills that are voted into law, seldom, if ever, get repealed.  So, my warning to those who still believe in God, Flag and Country, get up off your asses and join the rest of us, and “Stop” these self-absorbed, money and power hungry evil-doers, in Congress before they finish their job of destroying AMERICA from within.  

There is no better time than the present to take a stand and do so, by joining those Americans who truly believe in Freedom and fighting for what they believe in.  

What will the world do, if there is no longer the possibility of dreaming of or hoping and praying for a better life that exists somewhere on the planet when that place no longer exists, because there is no longer Freedom in America?  ss

It’s Time To Take The Country Back, America!

November 24, 2010

The Time Has Indeed Come!

 Governors of 35 states have already filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them.  It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, link to it, and/or please pass it on, which is what I’m doing now.

An idea whose time has come!

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress.  Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws.   The latest was to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform … in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law.  I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop. 

A Constitutional Convention – this is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come.  And, with the advent of modern communication, the process can be moved along with incredible speed.  There is talk out there that the “government” doesn’t care what the people think.  That is irrelevant.  It is incumbent on the population to address elected officials to the wrongs afflicted against the populace…you and me. 

Think about this…   The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified!  Why?  Simple!  The people demanded it.  That was in 1971…before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.   Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land…all because of public pressure.

I’m asking each person who reads this to link it to your blogs, so as many people as possible will see it.   If you don’t have a blog,  copy and send it out in email form,  to as many people as you can,  in turn ask each of those people to send it to their email list.

In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

“Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States .”  ss

Juan Williams and America Have a Great Day!

October 21, 2010

Wow!  What a fantastic day for Juan Williams.  Today Juan Williams should have been out Celebrating the fact that he was fired by a company (NPR)  whose agenda is to take down our Constitutional right to “Freedom of Speech”.   

How unbelievable it is that just a few words, said at the right time and in the right place, can change one’s entire life almost immediately.  In Juan’s case, I’ll bet my last dollar that he never imagined that returning a phone call, would be the one time that his whole world would come tumbling down and that there was nothing he could do about it. 

Yet, within 24 hours of the news going public about his being fired from his job, he went most probably from being shocked, sick to his stomach because he was unemployed suddenly, without any inkling of what he would or could do next, to being the biggest story on TV.  

What a rush it would be to find out that what happens to you is so important to so many strangers and well wishers.  Damn, how lucky can one man be?

Juan should feel ecstatic that Americans;  White, Black, Republican and Democrat alike, have, in mass, whether they agree with his Political views or not, taken his side, and in a Big Way, I might add, to defend his right to express his own opinion. 

This is the first time since Obama has taken office that  there has been so many people  from both sides of the isle who have agreed on anything without being threatened, bribed or worried about taking a stand on something,  for fear that they would not be re-elected.  

America has its good days and it’s bad days.  Today was a really good day, not just for Juan, but for America also.   Finally, Americans  found something  all  could agree on;  they still believe in  “Freedom of Speech”.    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

“We the People” vs The Enemy Within

July 17, 2010

 We  in America are all so economically intertwined with the international communities around the world that it is necessary for us to survive, so that all will survive.  Our future and what we can accomplish is only limited by those who limit our actions, by limiting our individual freedom.  The only limitations we have in today’s world are the limitations we put on our selves.  

We have taken way too long to stand up to the elitists Politicians who have been chipping and chipping away at the foundation that our freedom is built on.  These elected Politicians, these manipulators of truth, these greedy, self-indulgent, ego-centric representatives of the people, have somehow been morphed into empty vessels that look like human beings, but who can only survive, when sucking the breath of life out of “We the People” and they do this for nothing more than money and power. 

 This Congress and this White House are the closest examples that mankind has, to the idea of vampires, which legend leads us to believe, can only survive on the blood of humans.

I’m talking about a Congress and a White House who spend  their days blaming others for their mistakes and short-comings, trying to make their opponents look unworthy and to top it off this White House has no problem with throwing it’s own people under the bus.  

The Democrats in the House, spend their  nights hidden behind closed, locked doors, while Americans sleep, writing 2000 + page legislation, which they will never read, and yet they have the gall to vote for it.

 They have no idea if their legislation, if voted into a bill, will even work, because they have not written a working plan, but just a shopping list of ideas of anything that pops into their heads, so they can vote it into a bill and always with a price tag attached to it, which basically amounts to the highest number they can count up to.

This price tag has nothing to do with what the bill, when put into action, will cost to implement, but will just be an additional slush fund that they can dip into when the mood strikes them.  The real catch here is, that it is always the American people who get stuck paying for that bill, when it comes due. 

The time has come for “We the People” to take action on a National level.  We need to unite and there is no question about it.  The “Power of One” a united front, of “We the People” is what this country needs if our Republic is to survive. 

There are no “Limits to what we can do, if we do it together”.  We need to stop our Congress from continuously attempting to take our  freedom away from us, by limiting what we can and cannot do, by voting it into law.

Never in my lifetime, have I seen a Congress and a White House show so little regard for the freedoms we as Americans have been guaranteed by our Constitution.  This Congress and White House is such an embarrassment to the American people that, I honestly believe that, even our enemies are embarrassed for us and that they secretly hope and pray (yes, pray, that’s how bad this is) that we somehow will take back our Republic, so that they can continue to have an enemy worthy of their hatred. 

Now, if one looks at things from this point-of-view, it should be evident that America is in the fight of a lifetime.  This is no longer a time for talking, it is however, a time for action and it is about this moment in time, we will want the history books to say, that “We the People” woke up, united and took our country, our Republic  back,  from the “Enemy within”.  ss
