BUT..the elite naked men ran into a group of Michael Brown protestors, who had advertised what they were going to do on Facebook, —and that caused the highly educated and elite men who will someday walk the halls of power, to have to reverse the usual direction of the run, and left some significant “heated” interactions, between the two groups.
Actually, this is one protest I find pretty funny. You would have thought more GIRLS would have showed up. What does that say?
On a historical note: This practice of running around naked in Harvard yard (usually while drunk) once got Charles Adams (John’s son) suspended.
Why do they do it?
Because they can.
NOTICE, the Harvard guys are wearing rapper NIKE tennis shoes, and the protestors are wearing really old beat up ones.
Do we care that their naked run got disrupted?
Open wounds. It’s a first law of healing: You do NOT pick at the old wound. You let it heal. Pick it, and it bleeds again, and takes even longer to heal, and leaves a much bigger scar. Keep picking at it and it will never heal.
It’s a fact, not only in the physical human body, but also in the psychological part of the human soul. The mind has a wonderful mechanism, it forgets the most painful moments in its life.
Agatha Christie, (the great mystery writer) once totally forgot about 10 days of her life. She got in a car, in a deep despairing moment, and just left the car on the side of the road and walked away. Later she said she did not remember a thing she did during those 10 days.
I too had about 3 days in my life that I have no memory of whatsoever. There was a painful event, and I just had trouble coping with reality. I remember getting off a from a plane coming back from New York, but that’s about it. And no, it was not due to drugs or alcohol, I just closed up.
Like a computer that shuts down due to a power outage, a brain can completely shut off to survive. It’s healing itself. Really remarkable when you think about it.
And now, we have a President who will not allow the nation to heal.
Our President, obviously lashing out in his own pain, and for his own gain, has decided to pick the American wound of hatred, prejudice, and racism, and bring back the bloody memories of our ancestors. He is determined to NOT let the old racial hatred that blacks and whites have for each other heal.
Obama’s words are not only repulsive, they are sadistic.
It’s like the symbol called the Oroboros: the snake eats its own tail. The symbol has been around since the Egyptians, and has been used all over the world, no doubt because real snakes have been known to do this, swallow their own tail. And to me it’s a PERFECT symbol for Obama.
Pretend that Obama, is the snake. (Not hard.)
That circle around his symbolic big O, should be a snake, because who else but a snake would destroy his own country? Who else but a snake would FORCE a country into riots and hatred and therefore cause further economic destruction? He is refusing to let us heal from our past— heal from sins committed by another generation…crimes not even committed by those living now.
What do YOU see when you see that symbol? I see a snake basically eating itself to it’s own final death. I see suicide.
In historical terms the Oroboros means renewal, death and rebirth, but what kind of rebirth are we talking about? A black President is COMPLAINING about how America is raciest—- picking old wounds, stabbing words of deep resentment into people that are simply trying to survive. To me that means that Obama did not really win the election, and he knows it. If America is a racist as Obama claims, he would not be in the White House—so in a way, he just admitted the election was rigged.
Was he “choked” to death by that police man? Was he dead before they picked him up in the ambulance? Was this a racial act? Even his wife says it wasn’t because he was black. As you watch the video, the cops are trying very hard not to hurt the guy, and that man who was choking him, was NOT pulling on his vocal chords because Eric was still talking. I’ve heard reports that he died in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.
He was in really bad shape, a heart attack ready to happen. BUT…everyone knows that he certainly didn’t need to be arrested for selling a cigarette. A ticket would have sufficed.
Rush Limbaugh pointed out the fact that it wasn’t the choke hold that killed him, but the stupid law that says people can be harassed for just about anything by the police, and the high cigarette taxes were really the death of the man.
What happened to Garners was not much different than what happened to the Tea Party people who were hunted down and harassed by the IRS…albeit a symbolic chokehold. Both symbolic of a government out of control.
When Obama picks at the bloody wound of race, all his black basketball players and football players pick at it too. And then the blacks and whites stop being nice to each other, in their cars, standing in lines, in everyday encounters, all because the black man in the White House..is basically a snake.
Obama ONCE again, is not blamed:
Arianna Huffington summed it up this way:
The problem is how to fix a broken justice system that has, for obvious reasons, lost the trust of much of our country. The first step is translating people’s anger into political action to reassert accountability and put justice back into the justice system. BlackLivesMatter
(Do they matter enough to stop killing each other?)
So the Oroboros starts all over again….government causes poverty in the inner cities, therefore the police force becomes more militarized, and the people lose more and more of their rights, causing anarchy, and therefore the government must come in with more power, and more rights are lost, and it’s just a vicious circle of cause and effect, with no beginning and no end to the poverty, the lies, the destruction of America.
We saw it happen in Detroit. We saw it happen in Oakland. And now, we are watching it happen all over again, in Ferguson, and all across the country.
We are eating ourselves.
The only way to stop it is to cut off the head of the snake—-Before he devours us all.
By the way, I dreamt about the Oroboros (Although I didn’t know at the time what it was called,) when I was just 19 and going to college. I was taking a poetry class, having trouble deciding what to write, and so, I was woken from a dream in the middle of the afternoon, with a splitting headache, by the sound of my mother vacuuming.
I wrote down the dream: (Yes, it did have three parts, sorry I’m still weird.) Enjoy! Or not. (LOL!)
A Dream of Disease Or How to Succeed in Dying Without Really Trying.
Two Gigantic Grasshoppers
Swordfight in a Black Bubbling pot.
In high waisted military jackets of green,
And silver sheen in eye and sword,
Taking pleasure in being put there
By the man in the chair
Unsuspecting as I.
But then, he leaped
And crammed himself down the man’s throat,
Like garbage down a broken disposal.
They grouped and joined man’s
Circle of green and blur
Man eats himself.
And I lecture her on the lessons of watching
While puke pours down my hands.
This was not the worst.
Tornado picks up house
Of me and the 95the battalion
As I look down
At the perfect green squares
I know I will be dead.
Everywhere there are
Soldiers and slings and screams,
Interns in white,
Soaked in blood,
Wheelchairs, and ambulances, and mud.
Man grits as leg is carefully sawed off.
I lay on my side as if asleep.
Not a scratch.
He sits besides me
Looking at the floor, head in hands.
I am gone.
But the veteran’s march on.
Doctor of learning
He looked the same
Pipe in hand, feet on desk,
Our eyes met.
But the angelic voice that had once split atoms
Was not heard,
Woman of Independence and endings
Man who believed in revenge
So I brought it.
Discipline and work and eight years.
I gently nudged the boy forward.
“This is your father.”
“This is your son.”
Ran a year in ten seconds flat
Knowing that doctors do not come in small doses
(Where’s Agatha Christie when you need her?)
Since the democrats are taking us back daily to rehash ‘slavery’ and the black man’s seemingly endless march to nowhere…I thought its about time we remember some of the white people who sacrificed to end slavery.
So, I’m reprinting the memories of Levi Coffin who was one of the leaders of the Underground Railroad. He worked both in Indiana and in Ohio to help slaves escape: Here’s a few selections from his Reminiscences describing his experiences and how he did it:
I was personally acquainted with all the active and reliable workers on the Underground Railroad in the city, both colored and white. There were a few wise and careful managers among the colored people, but i was not safe to trust all of them with the affairs of our work. Most of them were too careless, and a few were unworthy–they could be bribed by the slave hunters to betray the hiding places of the fugitives. We soon found it to be the best policy to confine our affairs to a few persons and to let the whereabouts so the slaves be known to as few people as possible.
When slave hunters were prowling around the city we found it necessary to use every precaution. We were soon fully initiated into the management of the Underground Railroads matters in Cincinnati, and did not lack for work. Our willingness to aid the slaves was soon known and hardly a fugitive came to the city without applying to us for assistance. There seemed to be a continual increased of runaways and such was the vigilance of the pursuers that I was obliged to devote a large share of time from my business to making arrangements for their concealment and safe conveyance of the fugitives.
They sometimes came to our door frightened and panting and in a destitute condition having fled is such haste and fear that they had no time to bring any clothing except what they had on, and that was often very scant. The expense of providing suitable clothing for them when it was necessary for them to go on immediately, or of feeding them when they were obliged to be concealed for days or weeks, was very heavy.
Added to this was the cost of hiring teams when a party of fugitives had to be conveyed out of the city by night to some underground Railroad depot, from twenty to thirty miles distance. The price for a two-horse team on such occasions was generally ten dollars, and sometimes two or three teams were required. We generally hired these teams from a certain German livery stable, sending some irresponsible though honest colored man to procure them, and always sending the money to pay for them in advance. The people of the livery stable seemed to understand what the teams were wanted for, and asked no questions.
It was necessary to use every precaution and I thought it wise to act, as the monkey did, take the cat’s-paw to draw the chestnut from the fire, and not burn my own fingers. I generally gave the money to a second person to hand to the colored man. We had several trusty colored men who owned no property and who could lose nothing in a prosecution, who understood Underground Railroad matters: And we generally got them to act as drivers but in some instances white men volunteered to drive, generally young and able-bodied. Sometimes the depot to which the fugitives were consigned was not reached until several hours after daylight, and it required a person of pluck and nerve to conduct them to their stopping place. If the party of fugitives were large they were soon scattered among the Abolitionist in the neighborhood, and remained in safe concealment until the next night….
Our house was large and well adapted for secreting fugitives. Very often slaves would lie concealed in upper chambers for weeks without the boarders or frequent visitors at the house knowing anything about it. My wife had a quiet unconcerned way of going about her work as if nothing unusual was on hand, which was calculated to lull every suspicion of those who might be watching, and who would have been at once aroused by any sign of secrecy or mystery. Even the intimate friend of the family did no know when there were slaves hidden in the house unless they were directly informed…
The story goes on…and it’s too long to reprint here, but he did have a devil of a time figuring out how to get a large party of 28, one with women and young babies, across to Canada, so he staged a fake funeral.
Today–as you listen to the blacks and their slurs and often obscene shouting’, it occurred to me that I have NEVER heard one single black man OR woman, thank the good white people who gave their lives, and still do, to keep them free, so that slavery never happens again.
But…hope is there. A few black men protected a white man’s store in Ferguson. They stood outside and guarded it. And today, x-military men (white) have volunteered their services to guard the businesses’ of Ferguson. (sitting on the rooftops) All they need is the permission of the property owner. They are still there.
You are NOT seeing these white heroes on CNN.
The day I hear a black man praise and actually THANK…all the whites who gave their lives to free the slaves..(from the democratic slave plantations) that will be the day I that we should ALL mark down in history as the day the black man was on his way finally, to getting off the liberal plantation forever.
It’s been really interesting today, on all the talk shows, hearing the democrats trying to defend Obama’s actions last week on immigration. But one thing you have to give them credit for: they have got their talking points down pat:
1. Obama HAD to do something because the republicans have not done a thing on immigration. “Congress was unwilling to act.”
(Lie: They sent hundreds of bills to the Senate, and Harry Reid refused to bring them to the floor.)
2. Only 47 percent of the voters voted, therefore, the rest of the people WANTED Obama to do something and support this.
(Lie, Obama’s supporters stayed home because they don’t really care what he does, those are the 47percent that don’t PAY any taxes and are finding out Obama lied.)
3. Obama has the right to do what he did because other Presidents did the same.
(Lie, they worked with Congresses who had just passed immigration laws. Only Congress can pass immigration laws. Obama has no such power, and by his own admission.)
4. The republcians are only concerned about the border on the South, not protecting the other borders.
(This of course, borders on the absurd….it’s like saying you only care about the cancer in my brain not the stuffy nose I get from allergies.)
It’s been a real barf watching the slick enthusiasm of the democrats–mostly Hispanics, coming to the defense of Obama’s impeachable crime. Even Obama himself, has come out and claimed that—as President, he has the right to let five millions illegals stay in America. Poor things, just needed some help from him, and when everyone was outraged he said this:
“Well, my response is pass a bill. Congress has a responsibility to deal with these issues and there are some things that I can’t do on my own.”
What? You just did!
So, you have to ask yourself, how do democrats get by with such falsehoods, lies, deceptions, and the republicans don’t?
The answer is: Salemenship.
Let’s take a look at some examples of great salesmen;
Have you ever wondered WHY Microsoft cornered the market on its product? Was it just because it was so good? Take a look at the man who sold it:
Steve Ballmer. (Pretty funny) Steve could sell you a ticket to the gas chamber, that’s how good he is. (Wait…that’s sort of what Obama did….)
And then there’s THIS guy: Illinois Representative Luis Gutierrez, he was on Face the Nation this morning and he ran rings around his conservative opponent. Sure, ALL his arguments were BS, and full of holes, and his belief is that the illegals that are here, are as deserving to be here as you and I. And he sells that nonsense, like Steve Ballmer could sell you the next trip to the moon with China at the helm.
I kept yelling at the conservative guy to SAY something, REFUTE! Point out that the Canadians are not sending 100,000 unaccompanied kids into Idaho last time you looked…but no. He was totally boring, and Bob Schaeffer made sure Gutierrez had the most time. Here he admits that it’s all about getting democratic voters..and makes it all sound wonderful.
And last but not least is this guy, Joel Osteen, not your typical Evangelist. I listened to part of his sermon today, and boy, was it ever clever. He basically said, that you WILL get rich and famous, IF your parents had sacrificed to the church, and believed in God, and this devotion will be paid down to you. The more you GIVE money to the church, and he threw in other worthy causes, the more YOU will benefit in your own life. God WILL reward you.
(Never mind that millions living in poverty had religious parents too.)
Not a new story: As old as time itself: Give to us, and YOU will benefit. The oldest sales pitch around: Starting when Mohammed decided to steal the limelight of Jesus by claiming Allah choose HIM to be the new messiah, (Forget that guy Jesus) and everyone would get 72 virgins if they’d just come on over to Islam!
Joel is doing the very same thing that politicians do every day…and to see the ultimate pinnacle of hypocracy…in this video, Oprah Winfrey (the richest women in the US) chastised him for having a grand piano in his house, is about as hypocritical on her part, as it gets. As if..what she sells every day is worth money, and what he sells, is not.
So it’s all about salesmanship. And that’s what the Republicans lack. Ronald Reagan SOLD America. He sold the dreams of our fathers. It’s what we need.
Nobody Wishes we could all chip in and pay Steve Ballmer to sell America and her value to America again. (Steve? Are you bored with basketball yet?)
Do you think Jeb Bush OR Hillary Clinton would be able to sell themselves against a real salesmen with the talent of a Steve Ballmer or Joel Osteen?
And that’s been the complaint of everyone: The conservatives do NOT have that revolutionary voice, that strong voice that can SELL you freedom.
The only one that I can think of that would have matched the salesmanship of a Steve Ballmer, was Andrew Brietbart. Can you imagine if he were still alive?
And isn’t it fortuitous for the liberals that he’s no longer with us.
Is there another out there as courageous? Nobody Wonders.
I just read Obama’s speech tonight, where he gave 5 million illegals amnesty. We will now merge with Mexico, into a third world county.
No you say? Look around you. Okay, it depends on where you live, but much of America is already on that path.
I couldn’t bear to listen to it. But I read all the comments on Twitchy, and every one of them said this:
America elected a man who promised to bring ‘Hope and Change” and instead he has historically just killed her. With ONE stroke of the pen.
And so, I thought it fitting, that every man in the Congress, every Senator, every Representative, now must stand naked before us. If they don’t cry for impeachment, then they don’t love their country. They swore an oath, to protect and defend the Constitution: And that’s means, according to our Constitution, they must impeach.
At least that’s my Nobody’s Opinion on the matter.
We will know, the few that will call for it….if any.
They could cut all funding off. They COULD fight back. Will they? Or will the Bush Babies just sit around and say, “Wait till Jeb gets in.”
Since the Congress doesn’t seem to remember the Constitution, here is a few lines from that now lost document— for us to remember:
The President’s job:
All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.
(What Obama did tonight, was not in his power. Only the Congress can make laws.)
The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.
(He may not have dictatorial power. And obviously, pardoning 5 million illegal’s was not what the founders had in mind.)
He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.
(He can make treaties WITH THE ADVICE AND CONSENT of the Senate. Did he get the Senate to vote on the last global emissions cutback with China? Or on immigration? And he’s about to do a deal with Iran, and put the whole world in danger. He just fucked America, NEXT: Israel.)
He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.
(Obama has ordered that all our immigration laws be ignored. He changed Obamacare so many times, by himself, nobody knows what is going on with it.)
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
Obama has broken the law. He has committed treason, bribery, and high crimes. There are only two moves now left: impeach, or cut off his money.
Will the GOP do anything?
We live in a country where the President, can do anything. Anything. Anything. He can kill millions. No one can arrest him.
Unbelievable!…Is this what millions of American men have died for? THIS! Why is there NOT more outrage?
Tomorrow we will hear a lot of talk…It’s impeachable, but hey, don’t impeach. We have Christmas vacations already planned, and besides, it will cost us time and money.
That’s what they will say. It’s…just too much trouble.
Obama is not the only man who brought down America: If George W. Bush had not bailed out the banks, and fought a war without the will of winning that war, then Obama would never have been elected. And his family is on the move to step right back in…..Both parties have the American people, boxed in.
Rendered helpless. They have taken away all hope for the people to win back their county. The other half have no idea what just happened. And they really don’t care.
Sadly, they don’t.
Miracles can happen, but not often enough….
I pray for us all.
“The poor people, it is true, have been much less successful than the great. They have seldom found either leisure or opportunity to form a union and exert their strength; ignorant as they were of arts and letters, they have seldom been able to frame and support a regular opposition. This, however, has been known by the great to be the temper of mankind; and they have accordingly labored, in all ages, to wrest from the populace, as they are contemptuously called, the knowledge of their rights and wrongs, and the power to assert the former or redress the latter. I say RIGHTS, for such they have, undoubtedly, antecedent to all earthly government, – Rights, that cannot be repealed or restrained by human laws – Rights, derived from the great Legislator of the universe.” – A Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law, 1765…..John Adams
I was thumbing through a few liberals blogs last night, when I came upon a blog called: Liberal America: The article was titled: The Koch Brothers, Ron and Rand Paul, and the John Birch Society.
Whoa. This guy was WORRIED. According to him, the John Birch Society, that evil, radical, right-wing KKK organization from the 1950’s, has been resurrected AGAIN…as the Tea Party. And the Koch Brothers are funding it.
The JBS was founded in 1958 by Robert Welch, a Massachusetts Republican Party official, wealthy business man, and board member of the ultra conservative National Review. It was named after a U.S. Intelligence officer who was killed by Chinese Communist shortly after World War II.
He goes on to say that the members of the John Birch Society do NOT want to tax the rich, want regular people to be poor, uneducated and powerless, and union less.
Fred Koch, was an original founding member and backer of the JBS.
In 1980, David Koch was the Libertarian Party Candidate for Vice President.
So, the Tea Party, has taken up the very same principles as the John Birch Society, but they just don’t know it yet. As you can see below, they are almost identical. Most Tea Party people would cringe at the comparison. Why? Because the progressives have been working for years to destroy the common rights of the people, and so, a John Birch Society member was vilified with relentless animosity. The name of John Birch was put right up there with Hitler.
Pure propaganda, and lies.
Still…as we see by the results last election—that poor liberal blogger must be freaking out…so let’s see exactly what is so scary about the John Birch Society? :
Here’s a few lines from their statement of principles, printed in the Congressional Record on June 12, 1962:
With very few exceptions the members of the John Birch Society are deeply religious people. Our hope is to make better Catholics, better Protestants, better Jews,—or better Moslems, out of those who belong to the society. Our never-ending concern is with morality, integrity and purpose.
We believe that communism is as utterly incompatible with all religion as it is contemptuous of all morality and destructive of freedom. It is intrinsically evil. It must be opposed, therefore, with equal firmness, on religious grounds, moral ground and political grounds. Our ultimate quarrel with the Communists is that they insist on imposing that way of life on the rest of us by murder, treason, and cruelty rather than by persuasion.
The present United Nations was designed by its founders for the exactly opposite purpose of increasing the rigidity of government controls over the lives and affairs of individual men. We believe it has become, as it was intended to become a major instrumentality for the establishment of a one world Communist tyranny over the population of the whole earth. One of our most immediate objectives, therefore, is to get the United State out of the United Nations, and the United Nations out of the United States.
We believe that a constitutional republic, such as our founding fathers gave us, is probably the best of all forms of government. We believe that a democracy, which they tried hard to obviate, and into which the liberals have been trying for fifty years to convert our republic, is one the worst of all forms of government. This is a republic, not a democracy: let’s keep it that way.
We are opposed to collectivism as a political and economic system, even when it does not have the police-state features of communism. We are opposed to it no matter whether the collectivism be called socialism, or the welfare state of the New Deal, or the Fair Deal or the New Frontier, or advanced under some other semantic disguises. We believe that increasing the size of government, increasing the centralization of government, and increasing the functions of government all act as brakes on material progress and as destroyers of personal freedom.
It is extremely important in our case to keep our township, city, county, and state government from being bribed and coerced into coming under one direct chain of control from Washington.
We think it is even more important for the government to obey the laws than for the people to do so. But for thirty years we have had a steady stream of government which increasingly have regarded our laws and even our Constitution as mere pieces of paper, which should not be allowed to stand in the way of what they, in their omniscient benevolence, considered to be “for the greatest good of the greatest number.” We want a restoration of a “government of laws and not of men” in this country, and if a few impeachments are necessary to bring that about , then we are all for impeachment.
So, there you go. Fine thoughts, and sound thinking all around. In the tavern of rational logic the pints would raise the toasts to “ALL HAIL the Republic!” would be …
The fight between the progressives (communist/Marxist) and the people who believe in the right to their own freedom, has been going on forever.
They just don’t teach history anymore. And they have made SURE that the “lies” about the Tea Party and the John Birch Society just keep piling up.
Oh…one more thing:
He said this:
William F. Buckley, Jr., widely recognized as the father of modern American Conservatism and the founder of the National Review, became concerned about the growing influence of the JBS over the Republican Party and Conservative politics. Beginning with his February, 1962 essay, Buckley began warning readers of the dangers posed by the JBS, eventually effectively removing it from the GOP and banishing its followers to the far right-wing fringe of American political thought.
Was this the moment the Republican Party joined up with the Progressives and split from the people?
After all, FDR really DID have 17 card-carrying communists in his administration.
Anyway, here’s their website: But let me warn you:
It’s really ….nice.
Here’s something that goes right along with Snopercod’s article..(See comments in last post.)
Bradlee Dean points out that Time Magazine has honored all the tyrants in the world, which makes you wonder…
How many Marxists are still on the staff?
It an exciting night for the Republicans, and Obama has already scheduled a get together at the White House for Friday…right now the first to get the good news out, was Twitchy: the Republicans control the Senate with the win in Iowa.
Obama is now alone in his castle. BUT… He plans to wine and dine them all on Friday, and then do whatever he wants. CNN has been broadcasting gloom and doom even in the beginning of the night..
The biggest joy will be seeing Harry Reid, retired from the chair…and hopefully dropped off the planet.
So far, Laura Ingram is giving the most sensible advise to the Republicans that I’ve heard. After this…the GOP should run on helping the middle class. At least what’s left of it.
There was still a lot of the usual mob tricks…in Cook County Illinois, judges were told to stay home. And here in St. Louis, they ran out of paper ballots, and they are keeping the voting spots open hours after they are supposed to close. It’s an old democratic trick…they rush out and bring in busloads of people out of nowhere.
Nobody can figure out WHY so many people wanted paper ballots! Why?
Last night, I was listening to an expert on elections, and her summation (she’s written books on this) is that there are districts where one person can be ‘bribed’ to fix the numbers, and she has personally found fraud in many states. One of the signs that your district is corrupt, is when they have to keep doing recounts. You can believe there is something wrong.
She also said that the politicians would like to get us all to vote by cell phone someday–which will have no transparency at all.
All in all…I’d say it was a successful night…and now, the fight just starts: .
And In the words of Duddits (Stephen Kings’ character in his book DreamCatchers. ) before he defeats the evil alien monster scum….
“Scooby Dooby Doo, We Got Some Work to Do Now”
If you happen to think that politics has NEVER been so partisan, think again. The troubles of the Donkey VS the Elephant began years ago…when George Washington, who was sick of all the partisan fighting said, “I’m leaving this town and you can TAKE this job and shove it.”
Okay, he was a lot more dignified about it. But the fighting started during his last years as President, and it has never stopped. The partisan bickering started: The Virginians VS the Northerners. (Or Federalists.) OR…South VS the North. The Jeffersonian VS the Federalists. Whatever—none of them got along.
In the North, Hamilton had already been working with the banks of England, and his push for a National Bank was seen by the South as a way to transfer power from the agrarian sectors of the South, to the commercial enterprises of the North. They (Lead by Jefferson) thought the National Bank was unconstitutional.
(Jefferson would be the Ron Paul of today.)
Abigail Adam’s keen observance— “I firmly believe that if I live ten years longer, I saw see a division of Northern and Southern states. “
And right when America was just getting her first steps: Along came the French Revolution. (1793) Washington declared the United States neutral. He didn’t want to take sides in the war between the French and the British, because the United States was heavily trading with BOTH countries. Add to that, we had signed a peace treaty with England in 1778.
But the people of the United States, loved the French and hated the British, for obvious reasons. America would not have been able to defeat the British without the French.
And so–the Partisan political divides began: French loving Americans sided with Thomas Jefferson, and basically started the democratic party, which they called Republican, to show you–that Democrats got the habit of saying everything backwards from Thomas Jefferson. (Hey, you tell me. They are STILL saying black is white.)
Now, France was not to let a good crisis go to waste, so getting together with Jefferson, the French Minister, Edmond Genet, started stirring up the masses to get Americans to defy their government and come to the cause of the French in liberty, equality, and fraternity. (Hope and Change to come) People protested and marched in every single city, and newspapers were filled with both sides–yelling obscenities like “You WAGGER FRENCH LOVER YOU!” And “YOU LOVE KING GEORGE AND EAT MY OYSTER”
And thus began partisan politics. Americans have not given it up since. In fact, we have perfected it, and made it a huge part of the American economic engine. (That’s another blog.)
But, back to 1793. Most of the people wanted to go back to war with Great Britain, and anyone who didn’t want to go back to war, was labeled: horrors of horrors: an aristocrat.
Now we can just call them “chicken- shits.”
Hard to believe that the Jeffersonian Republicans (democrats) wanted to go to war back then, but there you go. Like I said, confusion.
Republican editorials blasted Washington and Hamilton. They were both hated.
While Thomas Jefferson was Secretary of State, he was orchestrating the Republican opposition to the very government he officially served.
Imagine Harry Reid having secret meetings with the Koch Brothers.
So—-why was Jefferson rallying Americans to go after the British again? History reports he was afraid the government would become bigger than the states.
(Eventually, that DID happen.)
BUT..John Adams thought he knew the real reason:
In John’s opinion Jefferson’s true motives were blatantly self-serving. Like so many of the Virginia planters he was heavily in debt to British creditors, and therefore predisposed toward an anti-British foreign policy that would delay repayment into the indefinite future.
And so he spread the rumor that the treaty with Britain, which John Jay arranged, was the big problem. John Jay’s Treaty with Britain removed the British troops from the West, and stopped the British Frigates from raiding American ships in the Caribbean. That was a GOOD thing. The British paid us back for whatever we lost from their Navy raiding our ships, and we agreed that American debtors— chiefly Virginia planters— pay off their prewar debt to British creditors.
How did the American people feel about that Treaty? They burned John Jay effigies in every town.
(Now, you can’t even wear a NRA cap to the voting booth.)
And Jefferson had help. James Madison, was working with Jefferson (who was in hiding in Monticello pretending he was out of politics) and they sabotaged the treaty by denying the funds for its implantation it in the House.
(Something the House NEVER does now…Can you say, Obamacare?)
John believed he was watching the triumph of party politics in its most partisan form…and he said this:
The republican opposition was highly orchestrated, “all moving as one Man, not a dissenting Voice among them, appearing as if drawn by one Cord.”
And that’s what has made the democratic party so successful: That cord has never been broken.
So, how is Congress doing in 2014? They are as far apart as they were in the beginning. Nothing is new here under the sun, and nothing ever changes, except the corruption in both parties borders BEYOND the obscene.
(From FRIST FAMILY and YES–I’m still reading it. )
It’s a pity that our founders are being trashed and forgotten in our schools–so just for fun, here’s some Benjamin Franklin quotes you are NOT likely to see taught anywhere: Each one describes what is happening in America today.
From Observations Concerning the Increase of Mankind: 1751
The following things must diminish a nation, VIZ:
(a) The Being Conquered.—- “For the conquerors will engross as many offices, and exact as much tribute or profit on the labor of the conquered , as well maintain them in their new establishments, and this diminishing the subsistence of the natives discourages their marriages, and so gradually diminish them, while the foreigners increase.”
(b) Law of Territory:— “Thus, the Britons, being driven into Wales and crowded to gather in a barren country insufficient to support such great numbers, diminished until the people bore a proportion to the produce, while the Saxons increased on their abandoned lands: until the Island became full of English. And were the English now driven into Wales by some foreign nation, there would in a few years be no more Englishmen in Britain , than there are now people in Wales.”
(c) Loss of Trade:” Manufactures exported draw subsistence from foreign counties for numbers, who are thereby enabled to marry and raise families. If the nation be deprived of any branch of trade, and no new employment is found for the people occupied in that branch, it will also be soon deprived of so many people.”
(d) Loss of food. (I skipped this one it was so obvious.)
(e) Bad Government and Insecure Property.— People not only leave such a country and settling abroad, incorporate with other nations, lose their native language, and become foreigners, but, the industry of those that remain being discouraged, the quantity of subsistence in the country is lessened, and the support of a family becomes more difficult: so heavy taxes tend to diminish a people.
(f) The Introduction of Slaves:—“The Negroes brought into the English sugar islands have greatly diminished the whites there. The poor are by this means deprived of employment, while a few families acquire vast estates, which they spend on foreign luxuries and education their children in the habit of those luxuries. The same income is needed for the support of one that might have maintained 100. “
“In fine, a nation well regulated is like a polyp—take away a limb, its place is soon supplied cut it in two, and each deficient part shall speedily grow out of the part remaining.”
“And since detachments of English from Britain, sent to America , will have their places at home so soon supplied and increase so largely here, why should the Palatine boors be suffered to swarm into our settlements and by herding together, establish their language and manners to the exclusion of ours? Why should Pennsylvania, founded by the English, become a colony of aliens, who will shortly be so numerous as to Germanize us instead of our anglifying, and will never adopt our language or customs any more than they can acquire our complexion? “
“Which leads me to add one remark, that the number of purely white people in the world is proportionally very small. Why increase the sons of Africa by planting them on America, where we have so fair an opportunity, by excluding all blacks and tawnies, of increasing the lovely white and red? But perhaps I am partial to the complexion of my country, for such kind of partial is natural to mankind.” —Ben Franklin
And of course, many would say Ben was a racist by this remark.
But then again…so is Obama. He prefers a black Muslim nation.
If you throw a stone at Ben, you might as well throw one at Barack. Tell me, if what destroys a nation was so obvious to Ben Franklin, why is it not obvious to the men and women in Washington?
I think you know.
First: Still a little under the weather, so I have posted two excellent video’s on what seems to be bearing out before us:
Forget about Ebola for a minute….we have a much BIGGER problem.
The biggest concern that is becoming obvious—is that the man in the White House is not just merely incompetent, he if far more than that:
He is dangerous. He IS our enemy.
Passing Obamacare has hurt the economy as much as 9/11…add to that his policy of open borders, going after his enemies, and now filling the country with disease, it seems he is also letting the dangerous into our mist, and we WILL be attacked.
Whether this is Agenda 21, or just the dreams of a Muslim Lover, does it matter at this point?
Islam is always the same: They lie, and enter countries, smile sweetly, and then, build their Mosque on top of the destroyed churches. Obama IS a Muslim. I have seen their destruction right in my own neighborhood. Mosques are everywhere, and Islam does NOT play with others.
Obama IS the clear and present danger. If you can watch both these videos’, and come away with a different opinion, then I have no idea what else to say.
His biggest enemy is the Tea Party Patriot. All else, will bow before him.
I tend to agree with most everything that Nonie Darwish says, and intend to get her book.
Basically, the Brotherhood is slowly taking over in the West–and Obama is placing them here. (And helping ISIS)
And now, watch this. It’s time we start calling the Duck..what he is: A liar: and a Muslim who thinks America should be…Islamic.
We can’t protect America, and fight for our home, unless we see the danger before us…and his name is.. Barack Hussein Obama.
What’s in a name? EVERYTHING.
There’s no escaping it: Jimmy Carter just had one of the best days of his life.–President Obama, is being hammered about how badly he is handling the war—by his generals, his x-cabinet members, and all of our allies. Obama really doesn’t have a clue how to be “Commander-In-Chief.” Notice, he hasn’t made that “I’M THE COMMANDER- IN- CHIEF!” exclamation lately.
Obama is SO bad at commanding a war, he just might surpass Carter’s foreign policy failures. Jimmy Carter just said this::
“First of all, we waited too long. We let the Islamic State build up its money, capability and strength and weapons while it was still in Syria,” Carter told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in an interview published Tuesday. The 39th president was in Texas working on a Habitat for Humanity project.
“Then when [ISIS] moved into Iraq, the Sunni Muslims didn’t object to their being there and about a third of the territory in Iraq was abandoned,” he continued.
Carter also argued it would be strategic to have troops on the ground in Syria to help guide the air campaign. Obama, however, has pledged that the United States would not send troops into the country.
The cry is loud…on every doorstep we are hearing, “We need a STRONG leader!” Bill O’Reilly is hoping General Patton was frozen In a Disney Skywalker lab, so he can unfreeze him and send him to ISIS and destroy them all.
Since that’s not possible, I, little nobody, have another suggestion, and all I had to do was open a book. So, here’s a few tips, from a little nobody who lives near Ferguson, MO, and an American General, who actually knew how to win a war:
SHERMAN: “No army can be efficient unless it be a unit for action: and the power must come from above, not from below. The President usually delegates his power to the commander in-chief, and then to the next, and so on down to the lowest actual commander of troops, however small the detachment. No matter how troops come together, when once united, the highest officer in rank is held responsible, and should be consequently armed with the fullest power of the executive, subject only to law and existing orders.”
NOBODY: It’s been told that Obama did not listen to ANY of his generals. In fact, nobody knows if Obama even gives his generals any other directions than, “Get me some coffee.” “and “Stand DOWN.” Obama leads from the bottom, that way, the blame never goes to the top. HIM.
SHERMAN: “The more simple the principal, the greater the likelihood of determined action: and the less a commanding officer is circumscribed by bounds or by precedent, the greater is the probability that he will make the best use of his command and achieve the best results.”
NOBODY: Here’s a simple principle Obama: WIN THE WAR! Simple. Tell your army to WIN THE WAR. CRUSH ISIS. Sherman says: KISS. (Keep it simple, stupid.) What’s that Obama? You have a plane to catch?
SHERMAN: “At the close of the our Civil War, lasting four years, some of our best corps and division generals as well as staff officers were from civil life: But I cannot recall any of the most successful who did not express a regret that he had not received, in early life, instruction in the elementary principles of the art of war, instead of being forced to acquire its knowledge in the dangerous and expensive school of actual war.”
NOBODY: Okay Obama. We all know you have no clue how to wage a war. Even Paris Hilton has studied “The Art of War.” We realize how hard it must be to go from sitting in Revered Wright’s white-hating, America hating–church, to commanding the biggest military in the world, but, it might help if you stay up a few hours at night, and get a crash course on war. The only war you know how to wage is against the AMERICAN PEOPLE! You are doing a really good job at that…just turn that attention to our enemies. After all, you need us to fund Air Force One’s fuel bills.
SHERMAN: “There is a soul to an army as well as to the individual man, and no general can accomplish the full work of his army unless he commands the soul of his men, as well as their bodies and legs.”
NOBODY: Let’s face it Obama: the men hate you. You have cut their pay, left them in dangerous lands with no bullets, with orders not to shoot, you let them die, did not have their backs, and when they came home, you let them all die while waiting for care. You honored a TRAITOR in the White House. You can’t even call the enemy that has killed your soldiers by his rightful name. And let’s not forget, you personally shut down the WWII memorial while at the same time sending, Morsi, your Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian buddy, billions of dollars worth of OUR weapons.
You couldn’t command the soul of a prodigious tapeworm, face it. Better find your own Sherman, and quick.
SHERMAN: “Time is a most valuable element in all wars.”
NOBODY: And you sure screwed up the timing on THIS war, didn’t you? Jimmy Carter, the worst military commander-in-chief next to YOU, said it, not me: You waited too long, you played too many holes of golf..and ISIS just took over.
SHERMAN: “On the defensive there is no doubt of the propriety of fortifying: but in the assailing army the general must watch closely to see that his men do not neglect an opportunity to drop his precautionary defenses and act promptly on the offensive at every change.”
NOBODY. Obama is on permanent defense. The world is waiting for his offensive. And waiting…and waiting…Las Vegas bets? Obama will go on the offensive….when Michelle Obama actually eats her own lunch menu’s.
SHERMAN: “Other great difficulties, experienced by every general, are to measure truly the thousand and one reports that come to him in the midst of conflict: to preserve a clear and well-defined purpose at every instant of time: and to cause all efforts to converge to that tend.
NOBODY: Is that the problem Obama? Just too many things coming at you at once? IRS, Fast and Furious, Obamacare rollout, thousands flooding the border, terror threats, FBI secrets, Hillary wanting to change the chef already— and it’s getting harder to get a golf game in every day? Or is your clear and well-defined purpose a plan to destroy America?
SHERMAN: “To do these things he must know perfectly the strength and quality of each part of his own army as well as that of his opponent, and must be where he can personally see and observe with his own eyes and judge with his own mind. No man can personally command an army from the rear: he must be “at its front”. Some men think that modern armies may be so regulated that a general can sit in an office and play on his several columns as on the keys of a pinon: this is a fearful mistake.”
NOBODY: I’m pretty sure this means you should stop meeting your generals on your IPAD between sand traps.
SHERMAN: “The effect of his mind and personal energy must be felt by every office and man present with it to secure the best results. Every attempt to make war easy and safe will result in humiliations and disaster.”
So there it is: A Union American General is telling it like it is: Obama tried to make the war easy and safe, and look what happened. He is being humiliated by ISIS every day on Youtube, and millions of people are dying, simply because, he just couldn’t pick up a book.
How many times have you heard GOP politicians talk about the need for a Keystone Pipeline? And how many times have you heard the democrats kill any chance of it ever being built?
Remember that really good buddy of Obama’s? Warren the “I play ukulele!” Buffet? It’s not just stocks and Dairy Queen he is good at: it’s trains.
Here’s an email I purposely held off until today, because I think it stands alone, about just who really runs this country:
The rich elites? Or the politicians in their pockets?
(Thanks to Tom Beebe)
When you have a President who says “If you LIKE your doctor, you can KEEP your doctor..period.”—- And then you find out, it was the biggest lie of his Presidency, you tend not to believe anything else he says: and when he says that Ebola will not become a pandemic in America, he could put a “period” behind that statement, and it wouldn’t matter.
Who in their right mind would believe him?
Ebola has been all over the news today…so naturally, it lead right into my Friday historical remembrances—- of another pandemic in our history, and how it affected MY favorite founder at that time:
The Smallpox pandemic of 1776.
It was the summer of 1776, and the Continental Congress had just celebrated their Declaration of Independence. John Adams was appointed chair of the Committee on War and Ordnance on July 13. John was responsible for all the large and small policy decisions governing the Continental Army. As many of you know, it was John who suggested George Washington be the commander of that army.
And what was going around America that summer? Smallpox.
John couldn’t leave his duties in Philadelphia…and he had taken the smallpox vaccination earlier, and survived, so Abigail, on her husband’s advice, took the family to Boston for inoculation against smallpox.
Most of the kids got deathly sick.
John wrote that he felt like “a savage to be here, while my whole Family is sick at Boston.”
From First Family by Joseph E. Ellis
In John’s mind’s eye he could simultaneously envision patriotic celebrations throughout the land, the largest fleet ever to cross the Atlantic gathering in Long Island Sound, and his entire family confined in quarantine amid a raging smallpox epidemic that, according to Abigail, had infected seven thousand people in and around Boston.
She wrote to John:
“Nabby (their daughter) has enough of the small pox for all the family beside. She is pretty well covered, not a spot but what is so soar that she can neither walk, stand, or lay with any comfort. She has above a thousand pussels are large as a great Green Pea. Little Charles in delirium for 48 hours. Has caught the pox in the natural way. ” She told John he should prepare for the worst.
He wrote back to her:
“The Small Pox had done Us more harm than British armies, Canadians, Indians, Negroes, Hanoverians, Hessian, and all the rest. And now it was threatening to carry off “my little babes.”
While John’s boy lay dying… The Continental Army had suffered a devastating defeat, and retreated up Manhattan.
John desperately wanted to return home, but did not feel he could leave his post with the Continental Army in such disarray. He had been working eighteen to twenty hour days for over two months, his eyes were permanently bloodshot, and his sight was strained, making it difficult to read, especially at night. The emotional l toll of witnessing a colossal blow to the American cause was high, and he knew better than most that Washington’s army had gone through a near death experience. The celebratory mood of early July was now replaced by the somber recognition that it was going to be a long war.
After his great victory, General William Howe told the Continental Congress that he would put an end to it all, and was prepared to offer a new and more acceptable reconciliation.
John informed him, ( And I LOVE this…sorry amfortas) that American had no need for pardon, because they had done nothing wrong.
Luckily little Charles survived until much later when he killed himself in a drunken stupor, but Abigail pulled the kids through the worst the summer of 1776, and John help pull the new country through its new birth.
And so, the smallpox epidemic that hit Boston, went on around the world—
During the 18th century the disease killed an estimated 400,000 Europeans each year, including five reigning monarchs, and was responsible for a third of all blindness.
Between 20 and 60% of all those infected—and over 80% of infected children—died from the disease. During the 20th century, it is estimated that smallpox was responsible for 300–500 million deaths. In the early 1950s an estimated 50 million cases of smallpox occurred in the world each year. As recently as 1967, the World Health Organization estimated that 15 million people contracted the disease and that two million died in that year.
Let’s hope we all can find the same courage that our forefathers had. As for believing anything that Obama says about Ebola? Let me refer us all, to a more recent reminder, about what to do when politicians lie:
