Taking Our Country Back, Part 4

By John Velisek USN (Ret), staff writer

In this final part of Taking Our Country Back, I ask what we can do to change the direction in which our country is headed. There are steps that can be taken involving both the individual and our culture. But nothing will change unless the American people understand that ignoring problems or pretending they will be resolved somehow at some point in the future are not options at this point. Low information voters must be made to get involved by understanding the dire consequences of remaining on the present path; that the ongoing, seemingly endless gravy train will soon end.

We will not survive as a nation if we agree to simply “slow the rate” of government growth. Government growth never slows and never ends. We need to force our federal government to live within a budget, rein in the welfare state by ending it and close government bureaucracies which have become political slush funds and obvious Party cheerleaders. In this Republicans are just as guilty as Democrats, with the Senate and House both caving on any changes needed to repair the system. Welfare to Work for some odd reason is considered racist, the word bandied about whenever liberals are concerned their bought and paid for voting blocs are being threatened. Welfare has become generational vote buying that keeps families from moving ahead. It must be ended.

Slavery was a part of our national heritage which has been ended and condemned by all. But Barack Obama is now using the 160 year old history of slavery for the purpose of seeking reparations, that is, entitlements for millions who do not deserve them. My family came from the Czech Republic, a potato farmer who made his way here legally and worked his way into a middle class way of life. He didn’t take from others or keep anyone down to raise his family. He just worked hard.

Reparations will further divide this country and Barack Obama and the rest of the radical left know it. Americans are happy to help those who need it. But we must NOT provide billions to the undeserving in an attempt to appease White guilt that should not be felt in the first place. By the way, I assume taxpayers will be reimbursed the $16-20 trillion in Great Society welfare payments–our own reparations– before reparations for the previous institution of slavery are seriously discussed.

Government is too big. Does anyone really know how many government agencies exist, how many work there, what they do, or how much money they spend? Our government has turned into a clown show, making regulations by the thousands and infringing on our freedoms. We are literally being ruled by an unelected subculture which believes it knows best how Americans should lead their lives.

It is the citizen’s responsibility to be informed. If we have no knowledge of our founding principles, we have no understanding what our government should be and more importantly, what it should NOT be. As a result, politicians believe themselves entitled to rule rather than govern.

Ours is an exceptional country, no matter what Obama and leftist academics say. The indoctrination of our children in the greatness of the liberal agenda, starting in grade school and continuing through college, has to stop. Multiculturalism is all but worshipped by the far left. The notion that all cultures must be treated as equals; that criticism is the equivalent of racism or bigotry; this is the sort of dangerous nonsense which can lead to the death of those forced to accept it. Can anyone but a lunatic actually believe that Iran’s practice of beheading gays or the Saudi practice of treating women like chattel should be considered acceptable cultural nuances?

Responsibility must be the cornerstone of our country. Diversity can be celebrated, but not in and of itself. There are universal truths which must be accepted in all successful societies and by all worthy cultures. Already contemptuous of the United States, leftists embrace multiculturalism and diversity only as methods of destroying the society and culture they detest. We must stop them or be enslaved by them. This “choice” may be forced upon the American people sooner than we think.

Taking Back America, Part 3

By John Velisek USN (Ret), staff writer

Pundits tell us that the Republican Party will never win the black vote. Is there a reason for that? Is it perhaps because conservatives put an emphasis on personal responsibility and the rights of the individual? But does a black man care less about his child’s education than a white man? Does a black man working two jobs to put his child through college care any less about the cost of insurance, or if he has to worry about a politically correct response to the burning question of what he wants out of life?

I am a retired military veteran and have worked with a great many people. And I have in my own world found something that would startle a great many people. Among blacks, whites, Asians, Latinos and all others (I would assume the numbers are basically the same) 85% are good people just trying to get through life, doing the best they can. Ten percent will do just enough to get by and 5% are just losers no matter what you do for them. So how did we get where we are?

Over the past several decades, America has been divided. Progressives have deliberately pushed Americans apart as they pander to women, blacks and Hispanics. These individual groups have formed the base of the Democrat Party for many years, not realizing that being a part of the progressive movement has not changed their lifestyle. What has happened to black employment under this Administration? Who has predicted the lowest of expectations for these groups?

Calls for more government intervention are only guaranteed to make matters worse. The War on Poverty has been ongoing since LBJ; more than 50 years. A total of $16 Trillion in transfer payments have been made from those who work to those who do not.  And what has changed? The numbers still in poverty have not changed, unless it has been to increase.

But the attitude of waiting with your hand out—that has certainly changed. Those numbers have grown exponentially every year. And it is music to the ears of Democrats throughout the nation. For they realize that people dependent upon Big Brother are likely to stay that way, generation after generation. The Democrat Party has seen to it. After all, millions of votes are theirs for the asking; that is, for the buying. And only a massive redirection of incentives away from those who expect everyone else to take care of them can possibly dismantle the poisonous system with which the left have deliberately destroyed a race and they hope, eventually a nation.

It is up to us, all of us, to make a change, to make a difference. We can inform others of the cruel future guaranteed them by the Democrat Party, but we must not help Democrats provide it for them. Welfare for the able bodied must end. Those who decide to riot will burn down their own neighborhoods and towns. Let them pay for these crimes and do the rebuilding. We can’t waste any more time or money trying to help those who refuse to help themselves. Nor will we continue being intimidated into providing a free living. They have the choice between work, poverty and prison. Let them make it.

The progressive agenda is anathema to liberty. It survives only by means of theft, threat and force. The left must discredit the family, Christianity, our constitutional republic and way of life by telling the so-called “have-nots” that the rich have taken what is rightfully theirs. This is class warfare as practiced by the true experts.

The family is the backbone of this country. It is where everything starts, whether good or bad. Parents need to teach their children, children need to respect others. We need to have the respect and care necessary to tell our fellow man: “You are going down the wrong path, let me help.” Hollywood’s limousine liberals, D.C. progressives, academics and celebrity wanna-be’s will not provide help to anyone. They spout platitudes and move on. They have engaged in their feel-good service of the day. Have they changed you personally? Their goal is to prove to themselves and their fellow, brain-dead libs how compassionate they are.

The agenda of the far left and the effect of its minions on the United States and its citizens have always been the same—lie in order to destroy the culture and society; lie in order to put progressives in positions of power; attack anyone who disagrees or tells the truth.

The choice belongs to us. Will we work to sustain our nation and liberty, or destroy the one chance we have to move forward?

How very important Election 2016 can be.

Diversity has been given a bad name by “progressives” and their minions in Academia

“You Still Have ‘White Privilege’ Even if you ‘Survived a Nazi Concentration Camp’ ”

This extraordinary claim, that “it doesn’t matter what hardships you’ve had to face, you still have white privilege,” was directed to husband and wife survivors of Nazi tyranny by Robin DiAngelo, Professor of Multicultural Education at Westfield State University. With a scholarship in Social Justice Education and Whiteness Studies, DiAngelo teaches courses in Multicultural Teaching, Inter-group Dialogue Facilitation, and Cultural Diversity & Social Justice.

It is to progressive thinkers and holders of powerful educational credentials like Professor DiAngelo that Jerry Todd has directed his response.

By Jerry Todd, staff writer 

Today’s “progressive” has such a limited mindset, it’s a wonder they can find their way to the bathroom in the morning. Being severely “corpus callosum challenged” – meaning they cannot process and integrate left and right brain signals (except for designing video games) to arrive at cogent and reasonable conclusions. An ancient text referred to this as “ever learning, but never coming to the knowledge of truth…”

Diversity in their limited perception means merely simple human divisions of race, gender, ethnicity and economic status – with today’s strange nod to sexual “preference.” True diversity goes infinitely deeper into the endless range of gifts, talents and visions among all humanity and expressed in each unique individual.

The role of education is not to segregate people into mind-numbing pre-conceived boxes to meet some totalitarian goal. Seeking one’s own gifts and talents also mitigates the more base drives for physical satisfaction whatever that may be. Searching, discovering and application are the moral counterpoint to self-demeaning urges the mob covets for us.

Education – to educe – to draw out – is the most important role for the “Educator.” If the Educator has no vision of his/her own, or basis in the Wisdom of the Ages, what value is delivered? That which is passed down to us in our faith restrains us from overwhelming others instead of serving them.

Have you ever pondered God’s command to Adam and Eve to “… Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over all the plants and animals…?” God entrusted us with His Creation. We search and toil in awe as we strive to subdue and be fruitful… all the way into outer space with our visions and inventions!

Being fruitful, multiplying and subduing doesn’t imply beating the heck out of everything in sight. The Author of Beauty has love and stewardship in mind for us. Fruitfulness not only implies populating this wonderful earth across the lands and seas, but to subdue the untamed riches by a wedding of two gifts of Creation:

1. The gift of a wonderful planet Earth – The vast array of elements, minerals, flora and fauna. Their properties, combinations and improvements are our responsibility to discover and apply as good stewards. Subduing or taming these often wild and dangerous components of creation requires wisdom and imagination. That’s where science and free enterprise come in.

2. The gift of infinite diversity – Since the challenges are infinite, and in this engineer’s mind, an eternal voyage of discovery, development, sharing, rejoicing and praising He who made us in his image and likeness. Infinite challenges require infinite diversity. The “progressive” totalitarian is incapable of such vision. He/she destroys the visions of others, especially since in our times they have dominated what is left of education and media to the point the people perish for lack of vision.

Science has determined we all came from one set of parents and are therefore brothers and sisters. See www.nationalgeographic.com/genographic

We share common blood types and can cross breed – we go back about 60,000 years as developed humanity. The “official” racial, ethnic and moral diversity of the “regressive” divides us into potentially warring camps while denying “In God we Trust” and “e pluribus unum.”

True diversity is the infinite range of gifts, talents, challenges and opportunities humanity is intended to share in a free society – as one our Founders sacrificed for and passed down to us. No one is smart enough to determine an individual’s value and potential. That is why all life is sacred from conception to natural death. As Americans, we rejoice in the limitless opportunities our Constitutional Republic has allowed us to discover, to fail, to succeed. No nation or system of governance has ever afforded its people the privilege to thrive in infinite diversity as individuals and as a people. No nation has such a large population of academic ingrates.

Chicago’s Dems treat Black CPS students like farm animals because they can

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

As in other districts across the country, Blacks in Chicago would rather cut off their hand than vote Republican. After all, “Democrats are their friends and Republicans hate them,” as they have been taught to believe all of their lives as inmates on the Donkey’s plantation. 

In return for ALWAYS voting Democrat, Windy City Blacks have gotten welfare dollars, housing and everything else they could want except safe streets and good schools which they have long since given up demanding. Nevertheless, now they might be learning that when you cut a deal with Satan he always lies and always demands more than you thought you were giving him.

A case in point is the Democrat run Chicago Public School (CPS) system’s handling of its responsibilities toward its students. Because Blacks have blindly handed over total control of their lives to the Democrats, they now have no say in the prurient and disgusting “sex education” curriculum CPS is offering to their eleven year old sons and daughters.

Like so many other big city public school systems, the CPS is infected with perverts who have total freedom to force any perverted filth they care to on innocent children. 

It was only by fortunate happenstance that the perverts’ plans were uncovered when they brazenly, and most likely proudly, showed a slide presentation to shocked parents.  It detailed how they intended to teach “proper” anal intercourse methods to eleven year olds.

Black students in the CPS make up 84% of its enrollment so there is little doubt that callous disregard for the morals and sensibilities of Chicago’s Black families means nothing to the perverts who proposed this curriculum.  It should be of little comfort to the parents involved that a CPS spokesman has issued a statement saying this garbage “…is not and never was part of the student sexual education curriculum.”   

Notwithstanding the CPS’s denial, an examination of available school websites proves that the curriculum was indeed used in at least one school. The proof is that a disclaimer stating that a slide show demonstrating how to use a female anal intercourse condom was added to its website.         

Research also revealed that the CPS also teaches eleven and twelve year olds that the “morning after pill” is “NOT an abortion pill;” and it has adopted a policy providing 12 year olds with “reproductive services” without parental consent.

CPS’s treatment of its students can rightfully be compared with animal husbandry, but of course the media will never make that assertion. Blacks in Chicago are now prisoners in a jail of their own making; selling themselves to the Democrats has led to this terrible situation.

Obama thanks New England for its support with a finger in its eye

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

New England is beyond a doubt the most socialist section of the country. For all their talk about “Boston Strong” and “Hearty New Englanders,” they are the most committed supporters of Democrat liberals. Last Wednesday their loyalty to Barack Obama was rewarded with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) crushing blow to New England’s cod fishing industry.

Obama’s henchmen at NOAA placed a, “six-month ban on most cod fishing off New England this week and are threatening to cut next year’s catch by up to 75 percent.” Given the extent of the damage this ban will do, observers have estimated that it will destroy the livelihoods of people in and out of the fishing business throughout the deep blue region.    

The cynically timed, post-election NOAA edict, which takes effect immediately, shuts down fishing from Provincetown, Massachusetts to the Canadian border. No cod trawling may take place in the Gulf of Maine until April 30, 2015.

On hearing of this crippling announcement from Obama’s NOAA, a Gloucester fisherman gasped, “It’s all over! I’m done. My grandfather’s done it, [cod trawling] my father’s done it. I brought my kids into doing it.”

Now stuck in Obama’s web, he explained that his craft is not equipped to continue operations. His boat, which he uses to haul in between 700 and 2500 pounds of cod a day, is too small to make the round trip far enough away from NOAA’s clutches  to continue normal operations.  

This assault on New England’s economy is nothing new; their allowable catch was cut by 77% in 2013.  The liberal suckers in the region should have known better but of course they just can’t figure out the connection between voting Democrat and seeing their lives destroyed.   

Recent history shows that the federal government has issued wide fluctuations in its estimate of the size of the cod schools off the coast of New England.  As usual the Obama Administration uses whatever numbers it thinks it can get away with as it tightens its grip on every aspect of our economy.

By reflexively voting Democrat, the dupes in New England empower their tormentors to walk all over them.
