Secession or Expatriation?

With all the differences that have appeared in our society it is likely that some of them or in fact irreconcilable. I will never be in favor of redistribution of the wealth and I suspect my liberal counterpart cannot bear ceasing to try and control me. On these things I think that we will never come to a meeting of the minds. To that I say so be it. You go your way and I will go mine. As it is there are more conservatives in America than there are liberals. If you looked at the most liberal states you would essential have the northeast, Chicago (not all of Illinois is communist), Wisconsin, and California. These total a dozen far left leaning states including the District of Columbia.

To these I say bye bye as you are herewith removed from the United States of America and are now free to go about whatever agenda you wish. We conservatives and moderates will maintain the Government of the United States of America only with fewer states; and of course and new capitol (oh I love this part), a brand new congress, and a shiny new president. These people must all be vetted and back-door appointment not allowed. As America we hold title to the dollar, George Washington, the Constitution, and the US Military. We will however allow any leftist in any state or job to leave before we expatriate these states.

We have the majority. We have the desire. We have the motivation and the right. The only thing lacking is the doing. This is a very non-violent thing and we wish our liberal brethren ever success with their skewed philosophies. Perhaps in the cleansing of America of what ails her we can bring about another 200+ years of prosperity and leadership to the world.

The doing of this idea I think is very realistic. We don’t need walls or to change our IDs but the new United Socialist States may need or desire those things. May I suggest tattoos on their forehead or hands. As they tell it now we are to be feared more than anything. In their minds nothing is more dangerous than a “Conservative”. Of course there would be some changes for those folk. Without our money Nancy would have to give up her plane and, and… Come to think of it they won't need Nancy anymore, or Harry, or Barry O. Oh well. You have to break eggs to make an omelet.

Back here in the Great US of A we could start up our self-sufficiency again. We could fire up our steel mills and start paying farmers to grow crops again. It would be so great to see America back doing what she does best, leading the way. Sure we could trade with other countries, just not at the expense of American jobs and we could put strict limits on the numbers of lead painted toys we import. We could even end entitlements due to the number of new jobs available in manufacturing and farming. Surely we have some folks who would take those jobs now. Then again; they may have all moved to the United Socialist States. You can't win them all.

I'm Tired

Reposted with Permission from the author: Robert A. Hall. This is a Must read of a post from more than a year ago. HOW TRUE IS IT NOW.

I’ll be 63 soon. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce, and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I’ve worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven’t called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no retirement in sight, and I’m tired. Very tired.

I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth around” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy or stupid to earn it.

I’m tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to “keep people in their homes.” Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I’m willing to help. But if they bought McMansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the leftwing Congresscritters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them—with their own money.

I’m tired of being told how bad America is by leftwing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have the religious freedom and women’s rights of Saudi Arabia, the economy of Zimbabwe, the freedom of the press of China, the crime and violence of Mexico, the tolerance for Gay people of Iran, and the freedom of speech of Venezuela. Won’t multiculturalism be beautiful?

I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family “honor;” of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers;” of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery;” of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Shari’a law tells them to.

I believe “a man should be judged by the content of his character, not by the color of his skin.” I’m tired of being told that “race doesn’t matter” in the post-racial world of President Obama, when it’s all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of US Senators from Illinois. I think it’s very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the emancipation proclamation. I just wish the black president was Condi Rice, or someone who believes more in freedom and the individual and less in an all-knowing government.

I’m tired of a news media that thinks Bush’s fundraising and inaugural expenses were obscene, but that think Obama’s, at triple the cost, were wonderful. That thinks Bush exercising daily was a waste of presidential time, but Obama exercising is a great example for the public to control weight and stress, that picked over every line of Bush’s military records, but never demanded that Kerry release his, that slammed Palin with two years as governor for being too inexperienced for VP, but touted Obama with three years as senator as potentially the best president ever.

Wonder why people are dropping their subscriptions or switching to Fox News? Get a clue. I didn’t vote for Bush in 2000, but the media and Kerry drove me to his camp in 2004.

I’m tired of being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and madrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America, while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.

I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our jobs. We also own a three-bedroom condo where our daughter and granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore’s, and if you’re greener than Gore, you’re green enough.

I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off? I don’t think Gay people choose to be Gay, but I damn sure think druggies chose to take drugs. And I’m tired of harassment from cool people treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried marijuana.

I’m tired of illegal aliens being called “undocumented workers,” especially the ones who aren’t working, but are living on welfare or crime. What’s next? Calling drug dealers, “Undocumented Pharmacists”? And, no, I’m not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic and it’s been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion. I’m willing to fast track for citizenship any Hispanic person who can speak English, doesn’t have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military. Those are the citizens we need.

I’m tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people then themselves. Do bad things happen in war? You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave? Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years—and still are? Not even close. So here’s the deal. I’ll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we’ll compare notes. British and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.

I’m tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. Read the papers—bums are bi-partisan. And I’m tired of people telling me we need bi-partisanship. I live in Illinois, where the “Illinois Combine” of Democrats and Republicans has worked together harmoniously to loot the public for years. And I notice that the tax cheats in Obama’s cabinet are bi-partisan as well.

I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

Speaking of poor, I’m tired of hearing people with air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn’t have that in 1970, but we didn’t know we were “poor.” The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.

I’m real tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination, or big-whatever for their problems.

Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 63. Because, mostly, I’m not going to get to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter.

Obama: Man, Myth, or Friggin Lunatic?

Health Care is only Sleight of Hand allowing Government Takeover. To hear people discuss it you would swear that the government is concerned about human life. Get out of here. Our government could end thousands of deaths each day by eliminating tobacco sales. Now that would be controversial. Instead they tax it heavily for a nice little profit and ignore the dirty secret that they could care less about: American lives or should I say American deaths. What government cares about is more government. Governments like the ones our president wants to be like have killed millions of people.

The Washington Bunch is like a fish swimming in a cesspool. No matter which one you pick out they are bound to stink to high heaven. Who eats fish from a cesspool? No one, but we swallow the crap they stir up and scoop out of the cesspool.

One of the things I love about people is their ability to hope. Americans are hopeful people. Most Americans have ancestors who hoped for a better life here. All of us have is better than most of the world and probably better than any of our ancestors. Why all of a sudden do we need someone who knows nothing of life in America to want to “Fundamentally Change” it? Maybe you went to Harvard on someone else’s dime but not me. I worked for what I got and that included my education. I don’t have healthcare now and I don’t want it if it comes with a Socialist price tag.

Sure, young Americans and some classes of our society have been educated into a sense of entitlement. As a kid I thought the idea of Santa was good too. Sooner or later you have to grow up and accept responsibility for your own selves. Baby birds don’t always want to leap out in faith and sometimes the parents have to push them. It is often the same with human children. Parents find that it can be tough to wean them. Actually it is harder for the parent to stop giving than it is for the kids to make their own way.

Now you can compare Obama to countless despicable politicians. I don’t compare him to anything. He is unlike anything I have experienced in my 60 years. He is a president but not the people’s president. He got the job but a leader without followers is merely a guy out walking. His intentions are clear yet people act awestruck by his actions. To say that he lies is to say Mt. Everest is kind of tall. To trust him with anything is beyond all reason. He has to go. Impeachment? Succession from the Union? Elections? Whatever? If you woke up the day before the attacks on Pearl Harbor knowing what was going to happen would you sit on your thumbs or do something. Shout it out. Obama has to go. Oh yes do take Nancy and Harry with you.

Obama Revealed. Racist! Facist! Socialist!

This is a re-Publised article which upon reflection required some edits. First of all the title. I think I had been too clever with the title when what I hope to say is that Obama is a Racist. The proof is in his history and will be his legacy if he is not stopped. Even now he is out brainwashing the younger Americans on the wonder of his Creation. And so, consider this...

What do you call a country with a Leader who lies continually, ignores the desire of the people, places burdens upon or provides assistance to people based upon their Race, ignores the founding of his country, and manipulates the media to tell only certain perspectives? Wow. That could be any number of fascist regimes but it is now true of America. Hold on to this for just one moment while I pose some questions.

Do you wonder how could a political nobody become arguably the most divisive president of these United States, and all of that in months?

How could a bill that the overwhelming majority of Americans don’t want become law?

Who among us feels that our congress people who favored this bill listened to anything we had to say?

Who feels that truthfulness in the Media is dead, sustained on life support only for the benefit of the government?

Who believes it is wrong for the Whitehouse to have its own press and release only finished “News” to the people?

Who had hoped that the people would ultimately prevail and Washington would return to sanity?

Who hopes for November but deep down feels that the elections may make little or no difference?

Who feels that the deck is stacked and the cards dealt and Obama has all the Trump cards?

Who can list at least 5 things that Obama flat out lied about.

Lastly, who believes that Barack Hussein Obama has a secret personal agenda and that he will stop at nothing to achieve it?

Now back to my original thoughts and their proof. Most of you reading this have little need for proof for most of what I have written. Some may agree with it all. My comment about Race surely made some uneasy. If you are white I suspect you are very uneasy. We white people have been made to question our own opinions and thoughts about race issues. We have been taught to fear race related discussions and to say only racially acceptable things: whatever that may be. Relax. Black is just a color, or is it?

I want to now give you another take on my statement and then explain it. Obama’s redistribution of wealth is a “Racial” motivated effort. It is a thinly veiled repackaging of “Reparations” which many black organizations have been fighting for during the last 50 or so years. Basically, blacks feel they are owed money, land, and a mule with interest for the sufferings of their slave ancestors. Some of that thinking is in Black Liberation Theology. Obama spent 20+ years under his pastor Jeremiah Wright and the black liberation theology to which he subscribes as does his successor Otis Moss III. Here is a current quote from the Trinity Church website:

“We are a congregation which is Unashamedly Black and Unapologetically Christian... Our roots in the Black religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an African people, and remain "true to our native land," the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a Black worship service and ministries which address the Black Community.”

Notice the loyalty to Black, the Black religious experience, Christian, African people, the mother continent, God, and the Black Community. Spend some time looking into Black Experience and Black Community and it is highly racially charged with little respect for or need of white people. These things clearly state the differences between the way White America and Black America view their country and largely their Christian experience. Whites used Christianty to keep the black man down. Former pastor and Obama mentor Jeremiah Wright had this to say:

“[The United States] government lied about their belief that all men were created equal. The truth is they believed that all white men were created equal. The truth is they did not even believe that white women were created equal, in creation nor civilization. The government had to pass an amendment to the Constitution to get white women the vote. Then the government had to pass an equal rights amendment to get equal protection under the law for women. The government still thinks a woman has no rights over her own body, and between Uncle Clarence who sexually harassed Anita Hill, and a closeted Klan court, that is a throwback to the 19th century, handpicked by Daddy Bush, Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford, between Clarence and that stacked court, they are about to undo Roe vs. Wade, just like they are about to un-do affirmative action. The government lied in its founding documents and the government is still lying today. Governments lie.”

Obama said these in his own books in his own words:

"I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites."

"Yes, I’d seen weakness in other men— Gramps and his disappointments, Lolo and his compromise. But these men had become object lessons for me, men I might love but never emulate, white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa, that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself, the attributes of Martin and Malcolm, DuBois and Mandela."

Clearly Obama sees these people and himself as a Messiah to the blacks. Black Liberation Theology is essentially that and it is broad enough to find room for someone like Louis Farrakhan who was honored at Trinity by Jeremiah Wright with a “Lifetime Achievement Award”. This is the same Farrakhan that and the Nation of Islam who believe:

According to the Nation, whites were created by Yakub, the mad scientist, as a test for the superior black race, who are the chosen people, and also as a curse on it.

And again…”Mr. Farrakhan told the few whites in the crowd, "You are not a devil by the color of your skin; you are the devil by the teachings you have accepted."

Clearly this only shows circumstantial evidence and/or guilt by association but consider this. The hefty tax burdens will be on the top 2% of the wealthiest Americans. Would you venture a guess as to what percentage of those people to be black? On the other hand the states are expecting to increase their Medicaid rolls by up to 50%. Would you venture a guess as to what percent of those people are white?

Caucasians make up about 50% of Americans, with blacks second at about 25% and Latinos at 10%. All others make up the balance. It wasn’t until today that I realized that Obama’s efforts, whether planned or not, largely penalize whites and benefit blacks. I am so sad to think it but that is the way it works out. 93% of all blacks that voted voted for Obama. A large percentage of whites also voted for him. It is true that the majorities of Tea Party protesters were and are white. Neither he nor his administration acknowledged them. Is that racially motivated?

Lastly, black Americans whose inspiration is Africa are not Americans at all. We are all one people except those who are determined to create separations and divisions.

Whose wife became proud of America only after her husband became president?

What President accused a white police officer of acting stupidly without having any facts?

Which presidents black attorney general dropped all charges against members of the
Black Panthers who were involved in voter tampering?

Which Congressional Black Caucus has a perfect record of voting with the president?

Which president of the United States never revealed his college transcripts?

What president has yet to give a straight answer to a question?

Head of State or Head of Snake?

Today they say will be one of the most historic days in America. I suppose that is true. There have been many historic days, most of which went unnoticed. Most of us mark historic days by points in time that others see as historic as well: Pearl Harbor, JFK’s assassination, Obama’s election, etc. Today is an historic day not so much for the vote that will take place this afternoon but for the “Fundamental Change” that Americans NOW see in their country. Whether Obama Care passes or fails we still have the same issues in place after the vote as before it.

Let me share this line of thought with you. Is it Obama that matters so much or is it his huge power brokers that funded the most expensive election in history. Is he the problem or is it the way the rats in congress follow this “pied piper” to their apparent demise. Did Obama cause the media to ignore the truth in favor of a lie or did he merely exploit it. Did his associations with Communists, Anarchists, Race and hate mongers, anti-Semitics, and all sorts of evil doers go unannounced or did the American people choose to ignore them.

You have to ask yourself why America trusted in a candidate with “NO” experience and this seedy, sketchy past. Surely there are many factors and most of them historic yet passing unannounced. Even now government is planning to pass a bill that everyone knows is not “the bill” but is the one America “can” swallow for now. In time they will pass whatever they wish. In truth they are doing that now. Has any nation ever fallen without events leading up to its fall? Surely not. Moreover, I suspect that there were many who cried out of the dangers. I also know that many would prefer to believe a lie rather that to hear the truth.

For months now thousands and thousands have been crying out that it is time to save our Republic. I have been in that number and I now recognize that today’s corruption is the result of years of apathy and indifference. I myself am guilty of too much tolerance and ignorance. Today I see what my inaction is costing me and I fear the price will be paid by my children and grandchildren. They have always looked to their dad and grandpa to have the answers and to do the right thing.

Surely we are all culpable; those who deceived us and those now feeling betrayed. So the question becomes what are we now prepared to do? We must make every legal effort at our disposal to remove Congress, Obama, and those in high office who do not love this Republic. If you want a communist utopia, find one and move there. If you want a hand out, put a shovel in it and do something. If you see your neighbor in need, help them up. If you see your government in corruption, help them “OUT”. Accept nothing as the truth that you do not know to be the truth; not my words or anyone else’s. Take personal responsibility for yourself. Be faithful to yourself, your family, and your community. Lastly remember that small things grow into great things whether desirable or abhorred.

This has been an announcement from the Emergency Blog Alert System. If you do not know that there is an emergency, you are part of the problem.

NOTE: I published today’s blog because before this vote because I believe after the vote their will be elation or sadness. This vote is not the problem. The problem is systemic. A huge dose of moral and ethical penicillin from the people can end this Washington infection. Nothing less will do.

“Please. Do go on!”

Today I received a wonderful invitation from my Congressman, Russ Carnahan. He wants me to attend a “telephone town-hall”. Hah! Get outta here. What the hell is a “telephone town-hall”? The best I can tell it is just another way to keep me as a nameless no count, some kind of virtual meeting where I “virtually” don’t matter. Sure Russ. I would love to sit on hold while you talk down to me yet again of your freakish liberal agenda.

The last time this jerk was in town Kenneth Gladney got mugged by SEIU members outside Russ’s town hall. He filled the meeting with invitees from SEIU and ACORN and then locked and guarded the doors to his real constituents. Like most politicians these days they think they are astute and we are the ignorant masses. Well, this ignorant mass is listened out. “But do go on!”

I am even bored of the constant appeals for money from all of these newly formed groups claiming to represent me. For one price they will mail my “Priority” letter or hand deliver it to my congressman’s office. Duh! All my communications to my government are treated with equal indifference. Still many Americans fear that we will lose a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people”. I propose that that has already happened. The question is not whether we have lost it but rather how to get it back. With a President like Obama and a Congress of like minded elitists we can assume nothing but the worst.

To my recollection neither he nor his congress has represented “We the People” since taking office. Is that taxation without representation? Anyway, I think it is totally possible for Americans to retake their government. In my thinking we must no longer trust their words but must hold them accountable for their actions and not in a beholding way. We need to become “Soup Nazis” for government change. “You vote for O’bully-Care no reelection for you. Get out. Don’t come back.” (said in my best soup nazi accent) Perhaps that is language they can understand.

But be prepared for the long haul. Barack O’Bully and his gangster goons know how to wait us out. They have prepared their whole lives to seize the power they now behold and they will not go gently. As for me I'm for a one-term, biggest loser, shamefully remembered Barack Hussein Obama. He came seeking to destroy the American way and tasted the bile of an indignant people. May his legacy be that of the Sh.. he stirred.

I last talked about the “Law of Successive Approximations”. I hope that was fun for you. This should be as well. Today I want to talk about kids, actually the grown-up kids in government, who can’t seem to have it any way but their way. If they were children we would call them brats. Ok, so even as adults they are brats. For now let’s call them Senator or President or Partisans. The bottom line is they are a bunch of brats. They haven’t a clue nor the moral fortitude to do what is right for the country and the American people; they just know what they want. As far as I can tell they are so busy bawling about their desires they cannot hear anything.

Now, as Brat-in-Chief, Obama is setting the bar for ultimate “Bratdom”. He has a Brat Squad in Pelosi and Reid and a whole regiment of brats in congress and they are on both sides of the aisle. But as the Big Brat he has shown America exactly what he is about: Himself. To this day he has yet to yield on anything that differs from what he wants. Please correct me if I am wrong as I would admit to it. The Big Brat can’t. Now he has admitted that America, her people, her government, and her past politicians are wrong but not himself. That would make him human and I am afraid that the Big Brat doesn’t know that he is human. I guess that makes him the deity Brat. I could not bring myself to use a capital “D” there. DANG!

Anyway, while Americans are foundering, filled with concern about the economy, jobs, their futures, their families, and their homes the Big Brat keeps pushing people around and insisting that the government is the answer to everything, most especially healthcare. New flash to Big Brat; no one wants your Bratcare. We want something but we don’t want it shoved down our throats. I guess that makes the Big Brat’s plan “ O’Bully Care ”. Now that is a catchy name: Barack Hussein O’Bully.

So this has all been fun but you might wonder how this ties to the “Law of Successive Approximation”. Well that is my way to get you to read my last blog. No. Actually, it is the small lies and untruths that we Americans swallowed in ever larger bites that brought us to this time when we are choking on the crap that the Big Brat and the Brat Squad are feeding us. Eat up, choke to death, or slap the Brats now and in November.

This is a limited time offer and only you can decide. Truly.
