Hope for America from Americans

If there is one thing that Americans could use these days is a little inspiration. There are some really good things about this country that should really cheer everyone up. For now, we live in freedom with 230 years of history in a nation with the most perfect Constitution in the world in all of history. Most of us are eating well and are getting on with our lives fairly well. Some are hurting and many good Americans are stepping up to help.

Despite all efforts to evict Him, God is still alive and well and can be worshipped here in most places. Actually everyplace if you don’t tell anyone what you are doing. Even people of different faiths can worship their God here and we just think that is great. We even think it is fine if you have no god. Where else does such freedom exist?

Even after the tanking of the stock market, most of us are hopeful that we will recover and one day get on with our retirement plans. Most Americans will take a vacation, though fewer of us will fly. If you have to take a vacation what better place that America the Beautiful. I have seen most of it and I have to say it is spectacular. Not only do we have a beautiful country but it is filled with the finest people on earth. Americans are a loving, caring, forgiving, and diverse people. We love a happy ending and will do most anything to get one. We are hospitable and patriotic and we generally share the one and let you have your opinion of the other.

As far as we know the sun will come up tomorrow and the day after. Most of us are at peace in our lives and are getting on well enough not to complain. Generally you could say we possess varying amounts of faith, hope, and love. We know that bad times pass and that the clock stops for no man: particularly a despicable one. Can you feel it? Oh beautiful for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain...

Afraid to Say...

The other day I was speaking with a woman who stated that she and her husband were gravely concerned about the future of America. Even more telling was that she described going to hear Laura Ingram speak and fearing that damage might be done to their car or worse. Her fear describes all too well the feeling many Americans have. Who would have ever thought that our nation would have become a place where your freedom to speak would become overshadowed by your fear of retaliation?

Truthfully, I have wondered if my blogging might not get me extra scrutiny from the IRS or some other government Agency. I know how many visit my blog and so for now I think I am just another unknown. Do not misunderstand me. If you are going to speak out against this government I think there is a certain amount of risk that goes with it. How much is hard to tell and probably has much to do with how you speak out and to whom. Doesn’t the very thought of this just give you the creeps. America has become a Gestapo State and her people feel under siege.

While I do feel that efforts are being made to eliminate our freedom of speech or at least our “freedom to speak”, I am not yet thinking that the masses are in any real danger for having dissenting opinions. Yet that day will come. Think about it. We never thought that the things that happen now could have ever happened and yet they do. In a nation where our president feels comfortable to lord over the people, will he not also feel equally comfortable to sentence them to some punishment at his whim? When a congress has become so dysfunctional as to go against the will of the people, will they not also turn on those same people and demand allegiance? Most assuredly they will. Our president and our congress have both reached the point where they no longer are bound by the Constitution and they know it.

If our government were still beholding to the Constitution, they would not be able to pass laws requiring every citizen to buy anything, let alone their product: insurance. Even if insurance is a good thing, to require every American to buy anything is against our Constitution. The Constitution could be amended to provide for such a law but that would take a two-thirds majority in both houses. This administration can’t get that many votes for their agenda but neither do they need it. Why bother with Amending the Constitution when you can just ignore it? This administration has shown that they can do as they wish and we are powerless to stop them.

Now let me make a simple distinction of what Obama intends and what he Promises. Obama has made dozens of campaign promises and has yet to make good on the first of them. However, when Obama says he will do something, he does. He will not be stopped. Whether it requires hiring, firings, threats or bribes he will see it through. He said he will see Healthcare Reform and he will have it. Obama is sailing on a sea of congressional corruption in a ship named “Devious”. He has prepared his whole life to “fundamentally change” America and is within grasp of it and he has done this before our eyes. He knows we will do little, particularly if we are too afraid to speak up.

Being An American...

According to the latest estimates, Caucasians will be a minority in America sometime around 2040. Sounds like a long time off but the years between 2000 and 2010 passed like a blink of the eye. It is not that I mind being a racial minority. I guess I knew that someone is always on the lesser side. I have come to ponder that the very thing that made America great may now be the thing that irreversibly changes us. The world gave us her poor, tired and hungry and they now want America to be more like where they came from.

My first awareness to this phenomenon was when we lived in California. Among the many things that you can say about California is that it is a very diverse place with peoples from all over the world. I seem to remember that the voting ballots in California were printed in 27 languages the year that I left there. It seemed odd to me that English was no longer a requirement for voting. Not that I want to deprive anyone but we have just become so accommodating that we had lost something that unified us.

I tend to think that people are united or divided along socio economic, cultural, religious and language lines more than along racial ones. Some racial groups tend to try and maintain the purity of their races as well as some religions. I can remember when a non-Catholic would have to convert to marry a Catholic. Gentiles almost never marry Jews but interracial marriages are so common that no one thinks anything of them.

One hundred years ago there were less immigrants and those that came were seeking this America that was known around the world. We accepted people who accepted us. If you wanted to become an American we wanted you regardless of where you come from. Today we still accept you, even if your commitment is to only living here and not being one of us. So many of you wish to keep your culture, your language, and your race pure by isolating yourselves here. You live in America but you are not American. You haven’t been taught nor do you have the love for what made us special. Our Constitution is not sacred to you and you know nothing of how we got here. All you know is that we opened our doors and you came in.

I don’t blame you. It is we that allowed, even made this to happen. We continued to lower the standards of our educational system until we no longer lead the world but lag far behind. We found your countries could make our products cheaper and so we gave up our jobs in favor of profits. We make so little here anymore but we buy everything and our very economy is based upon us continuing to buy what we do not make with money that is printed but has little value. It was we that chose to believe lies rather than to stand for the truth. We have tolerated abuses when times were good because it was easy. Surely, we set ourselves up for this but we did not see it coming. We were too busy enjoying the good times.

To all of America I say that the answer lies in our past. The ideas of this modern age is not what will make America great again but rather the old ideas. Those who came here to enjoy Americas bounty must now learn where that came from. Those of us who know must return to those values. Those who would have us go the way of the rest of the world should leave here and return to that world. It is our Constitution that made us all free. It was that same Constitution that made everyone come here seeking liberty. And, it is that Constitution that can return us to greatness. It is not our differences that are dividing us it is our lack of a common belief. No other nation has survived, even excelled like the United States of America. It is our Constitution that made that possible and it is our Constitution that will restore us.

So what lies before us is the continued greatness of America as a Nation. Any other choice is unacceptable. Will you be an American or merely a resident alien? You don’t have to be from someplace else to be un-American.

Dear Mr. President...

In life we all experience some things that are just so wrong. Wrong in the way it is to torture puppies or to beat a homeless person. To encounter such things is a call to action. Americans we have such an opportunity this Christmas. We can inundate the White House with telegrams. Tell Mr. Obama how wrong it is to inflict upon New York this sham of a trial glorifying the terrorists and condemning America. This decision is not only wrong, it is wrong in the worst way: it is evil.

Mr. Obama, you have said that you have left this to Attorney General Holder. We don’t believe you nor do we care. What we care about is America and our American brothers and sisters. We care about those who suffered so much at the hands of these soulless zealots who took from us what could have only been taken by force: security. Our nation has been violated with the attacks of 9-11. Despots, bent on hatred, declared war on America. They stole the joy of sons, daughters, mothers and fathers. Nearly a decade has past and America still mourns the dead and dying.

Mr. Obama this decision to return these evil doers to New York and provide them with the rights and privileges of citizens is beyond all understanding. I have tried in every way I can to allow room in my heart for this decision but there is no quarter there. It is simply wrong. Mr. Obama can you care so little about this country that you will elevate these cheap terrorist thugs to the largest stage in the world? Are you so heartless that you cannot feel the pain of your people? Are we your people? Your mouth says yes but your actions say otherwise.

Surely you can go ahead with this. Who can stop you? You have shown us you will listen to no one. Perhaps you will listen to all of us. Perhaps you will see that to lead a people is to have them follow you. Look behind you now. Who is there? Who will be there tomorrow and after you continue to demean and demoralize America while edifying these hate maddened terrorists? Show America you care. Rescind this decision. Where is the Hope?

Is it Loony in here or is it just ME?

In these modern times political conspiracy theories abound. In the absence of facts it seems completely human to speculate and given small amounts of info can cause those speculations to become quite extreme. We are, however, not without information when it comes to the political climate in Washington. We have seen how Obama operates and whom he befriends. Based upon that data alone it was possible to predict how he would govern once elected president. Given a cursory understanding of congress and most anyone could foretell Congress’ actions.

So, at this point it is fair to ask the reader: Who here is surprised by what Obama and the Congress are doing? Only if you should leave a comment will I or the rest of the readers of this blog know your abilities at prognostication. I betting you did well.

The more difficult question is what to do about it. What actions should the average citizen take? I followed the norms and wrote and called everyone from here to Washington at least twice. If my results were like yours I was ignored, talked down to, or otherwise treated with disdain. Even sign toting on the steps of the Congress made little if any difference. And, while all of the polls show that Americans are against Healthcare Reform as it now is, Obama and his drones are steaming full speed ahead to deny American’s their right of representation.

For months Obama administration stated he would not be attending Copenhagen for the Climate talks. Once again, who here believed that? I thought so. In days he will go and indicate his willingness to dole out millions to poor nations because America has grossly destroyed the environment and we should pay. Picking up his Peace Prize will be justified as he will be there for government business. This is predictable yet shocking given the questions on the science that is pushing this effort. Why does everything have to be done NOW? I am sure you already have the answer.

Ok so let me get back to predicting or even better finding out your prophesies. I’ll bet you are going to say something about the 2010 and 2012 elections. Do you think your vote will make the needed difference? Yes? No? I’m not at all sure. People I talk to speak of things I never dreamed I’d hear: states seceding from the union, collapse of the dollar, America becoming a second world nation, one world government, and more. I call these WCS (worst case scenarios). Sadly I expect some of these will happen and none of them sound acceptable to me. Of course even thinking these things make me feel loony.

Will all the Loons please stand up.

Holder Gets Black Panther Approval

The new Black Panther party approves of Holder’s dismissal of a case against two of their members for voter intimidation. The new Black Panther leader Shabazz says:
“his group does not condone voter intimidation and suspended the member who stood outside a Philadelphia polling place with a nightstick during last year's presidential election.”
Here is some video of the incident. See for yourself and draw whatever conclusions you see fit.

Now I have to admit that anyone dressed in Para Military attire is bound to get some attention. I remember the original Black Panther party but I really knew little about “the New Black Panther Party”. I visited their website and found it very revealing. I would think that most thinking people would want to know this group and their hopes and dreams. This is their 10 point platform:
1. We want freedom. We want the power to practice self-determination, and to determine the destiny of our community and THE BLACK NATION.
We believe in the spiritual high moral code of our Ancestors. We believe in the truths of the Bible, Quran, and other sacred texts and writings. We believe in MAAT and the principles of NGUZO SABA. We believe that Black People will not be free until we are able to determine our Divine Destiny.
2. We want full employment for our people and we demand the dignity to do for ourselves what we have begged the white man to do for us.
We believe that since the white man has kept us deaf, dumb and blind, and used every “dirty trick” in the book to stand in the way of our freedom and independence, that we should be gainfully employed until such time we can employ and provide for ourselves.
3. We want tax exemption and an end to robbery of THE BLACK NATION by the CAPITALIST. We want an end to the capitalistic domination of Africa in all of its forms: imperialism, criminal settler colonialism, neo-colonialism, racism, sexism, zionism, Apartheid and artificial borders.
We believe that this wicked racist government has robbed us, and now we are demanding the overdue debt of reparations. A form of reparations was promised 100 years ago (forty acres and a mule) as restitution for the continued genocide of our people and to in meaningful measure and repair the damage for the AFRICAN HOLOCAUST (Maangamizo/Maafa).
We believe our people should be exempt from ALL TAXATION as long as we are deprived of equal justice under the laws of the land and the overdue reparations debt remains unpaid. We will accept payment in fertile and mine rally rich land, precious metals, industry, commerce and currency. As genocide crimes continue, people’s tribunals must be set up to prosecute and to execute.
The “Jews” were given reparations. The Japanese were given reparations. The Black, the Red and the Brown Nations must be given reparations. The American white man owes us reparations. England owes us reparations. France owes us reparations, Spain and all of Europe. Africa owes us reparations and repatriation. The Arabs owe us reparations. The “Jews” owe us reparations. All have taken part in the AFRICAN HOLOCAUST and the slaughter of 600 million of our people over the past 6,000 years in general and 400 year in particular. We know that this is a reasonable and just demand that we make at this time in history.
4. We want decent housing, fit for shelter of human beings, free health-care (preventive and maintenance). We want an end to the trafficking of drugs and to the biological and chemical warfare targeted at our people.
We believe since the white landlords will not give decent housing and quality health care to our Black Community, the he housing, the land, the social, political and economic institutions should be made into independent UUAMAA “New African Communal/Cooperatives” so that our community, with government reparations and aid (until we can do for ourselves) can build and make drug free, decent housing with health facilities for our people.
5. We want education for our people that exposes the true nature of this devilish and decadent American society. We want education that teaches us our true history/herstory and our role in the present day society.
We believe in an educational system that will give our people “a knowledge of self.” If we do not have knowledge of self and of our position in society and the world, then we have little chance to properly relate to anything else.
6. We want all Black Men and Black Women to be exempt from military service.
We believe that Black People should not be forced to fight in the military service to defend a racist government that holds us captive and does not protect us. We will not fight and kill other people of color in the world who, like Black People, are being victimized by the white racist government of America. We will protect ourselves from the force and violence of the racist police and the racist military, “by any means necessary.”
7. We want an immediate end to POLICE HARRASSMENT, BRUTALITY and MURDER of Black People. We want an end to Black-on-Black violence, “snitching,” cooperation and collaboration with the oppressor.
We believe we can end police brutality in our community by organizing Black self-defense groups (Black People’s Militias/Black Liberation Armies) that are dedicated to defending our Black Community from racist, fascist, police/military oppression and brutality. The Second Amendment of white America’s Constitution gives a right to bear arms. We therefore believe that all Black People should unite and form and “African United Front” and arm ourselves for self-defense.
8. We want freedom for all Black Men and Black Women held in international, military, federal, state, county, city jails and prisons.
We believe that all Black People and people of color should be released from the many jails and prisons because they have not received a fair and impartial trial. ‘Released’ means ‘released’ to the lawful authorities of the Black Nation.
9. We want all Black People when brought to trial to be tried in a court by a jury of their peer group or people from their Black Communities, as defined by white law of the Constitution of the United States.
We believe that the courts should follow their own law, if their nature will allow (as stated in their Constitution of the United States) so that Black People will receive fair trials. The 6th Amendment of the United States Constitution gives a man/woman a right to an impartial trial, which has been interpreted to be a “fair” trial by one’s “peer” group. A “peer” is a person from a similar economic, social, religious, geographical, environmental, historical and racial background. To do this, the court will be forced to select a jury from the Black Community from which the Black defendant came. We have been and are being tried by all white juries that have no understanding of the “average reasoning person” of the Black Community.
We want land, bread, housing, education, clothing, justice and peace. And, as our political objective, we want NATIONAL LIBERATION in a separate state or territory of our own, here or elsewhere, “a liberated zone” (“New Africa” or Africa), and a plebiscite to be held throughout the BLACK NATION in which only we will be allowed to participate for the purposes of determining our will and DIVINE destiny as a people. FREE THE LAND! “UP YOU MIGHTY NATION! YOU CAN ACCOMPLISH WHAT YOU WILL!” BLACK POWER! History has proven that the white man is absolutely disagreeable to get along with in peace. No one has been able to get along with the white man. All the people of color have been subjected to the white man’s wrath. We believe that his very nature will not allow for true sharing, fairness, equity and justice.
Therefore, to the Red Man and Woman, to the Yellow and to the Brown, we say to you

You can get more information at . I am sure you will find it illuminating.

Obama's "Chief" Problem

One can only speculate why Obama chose West Point to as his podium for his Afghanistan speech. Perhaps he thought it would give him that “Commander in Chief” look. The cadets didn’t seem to see him all that chiefly. Then again why would they. The military have laid everything on the line; a line which seems to move with the whims of Washington. Barak has blamed, delayed, and all but talked the war issue to death. What he did not do in the past months nor again last evening was instill confidence that he can be “Chief”.

A brief look at Obama’s history shows that he is willing to allow the CIA, FBI, and Secret Service take responsibility for Administration actions. He seems unwilling to prosecute any real criminals and will all too easily make Americans the criminals. Last night he telegraphed his punches to the Taliban and told them what to expect and for how long. When you look at the rules of engagement that he has saddled out troops with they are fighting uphill in every direction.

Our soldiers in Afghanistan can’t engage the enemy if civilians are present. They may not conduct searches unannounced nor at night. If they see the enemy, they are not to fire until the enemy engages them. Who in the hell does Obama think he is and what gives him the right to neuter our troops like that.

Chris Matthews said that Obama’s speech was given in the “enemy camp” and went on to comment how lackluster the cadet’s response was to the “O” speech. Duh! Many of these cadets will soon be deployed to fight within these confining rules for a president whom appears is not all that committed to winning.

Everyone knew when Obama was elected that he was short on experience and long on talk. Forty minutes into his speech last night only proved that he can talk long and loud. Perhaps he thought his facial expression and tone of voice would show his resolve. For a community organizer they may just get it done: speak a bunch of hype and hope the crowd gets involved and does the heavy lifting for you. None of the great leaders have ever been talkers. They have been doers. “Commander in Chief” is not a title; it is a responsibility.
