Looking for a Iraq War Protest?
Liberals are warning us to be careful of the “anti-government” movement. They call it dangerous. They say that Tea-Partiers are not really protesting unfair taxation, but rather just hate the Federal Government. If that isn’t enough to make you not like Tea-Partiers, Liberals say they are racists. Of course, there is no evidence of racism at tea parties. But that is how such accusations work today. No facts are required. Here’s a little trivia question. Which political party tried to block the Civil Rights Act of 1964? Democrats! THAT is a fact.
The notion that Tea Partiers are not really protesting taxes, but rather the Federal Government got me to thinking a bit. Maybe they ARE protesting the Federal Government and its abuses. So? Then, I started to think about anti-war protesters and if they were really protesting the war, or the government. Then it hit me like a ton of bricks……where did the anti Iraq War protestors go to? They disappeared! And yet, we are STILL in Iraq with daily casualties.
More facts - I just love YouTube because it forces you to believe me!
In January 2007, then Senator Barak Hussein Obama called for Iraq withdrawal by 2008.
July 5th 2008, Barak Hussein Obama: “In order to end this war responsibly, I will immediately begin to remove our troops from Iraq. We can responsibly remove one to two combat brigades each month. If we start with the number of brigades we have in Iraq today, we can remove all of them in sixteen months.” The President just completed his sixteen month in office, but we are still in Iraq. Protesters…where are you? Don’t forget that Vice President Joe Biden was against the surge in Iraq and declared that we had lost the war. Now, he praises the President for his leadership in Iraq and credits him with our recent success (which is the result of the surge he was against). Unbelievable!
Why are we not calling the President to the carpet on this? How many of you even knew he said these things? With the help of the liberal, Obama worshiping media, the protestors have all gone home and no one noticed. Were you really protesting the war, or were you protesting George W. Bush? Why are you not still protesting? This I know for sure: You have no honor!
Obama: “I do think at a certain point, you’ve made enough money.”
Now THIS is scary. If you do not find this unsettling, then just go back to watching live footage of the oil slick move ashore in the Gulf of Mexico. Mr. President, at what point has someone made enough money? What is the number? Who determines this figure? As I have said many times, wealth envy is at the heart of many Americans today. What they have personally accomplished and earned does not matter to them, so long as someone else does not have more. This is particularly true when it is perceived that someone with more wealth did not put forth great effort to earn it. The concept of wealth envy is as old as time itself and is even the subject of one of Jesus’ parables. In Matthew 20, Jesus talks of a landowner who hired several different groups of workers throughout the day. He told the first group early in the morning that if they worked all day, they would each receive one Denarius. As they day progressed, the landowner proceeded to go out and hire four more groups of workers at different times, the last group being hired in the “eleventh hour” of the day. He told all of these subsequent groups that he would pay them “what is right” when the work day was over. From the scripture: “When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.’ The workers who were hired about the eleventh hour came and each received a Denarius. So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius. When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner. ‘These men who were hired last worked only one hour,’ they said, ‘and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.’ But he answered one of them, ‘Friend, I am not being unfair to you. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? Take your pay and go. I want to give the man who was hired last the same as I gave you. Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?’ So the last will be first, and the first will be last.” (Matt. 20).
Here, the first group was clearly happy with their agreed upon wages until they noticed that someone else earned the same amount, while performing less work nonetheless. Most theologians would argue this scripture is not about money at all, but rather the notion that hard work and good deeds alone does not place one if front of another in the kingdom of Heaven. While I agree with the interpretation, I have always found it interesting that Jesus used this to communicate his point. Clearly, it is something that spoke to his followers then and still does today….wealth envy. It’s a powerful thing. “Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money?” Wow. For the record, I have every reason to believe the big, evil, Denarius holding land owner verified every workers citizenship prior to hiring them. Yeah....you knew THAT was coming!
Speaking of Jesus…..What would “Heh Soos” Do?)
Well, the state of Arizona has taken it upon them to do what the Federal Government has not. The Feds will flex their muscles and try to declare the Arizona law unconstitutional. The Liberal media will compare it to the state of Mississippi during the Civil Rights Movement.
I have heard it asked from Liberals, “What would Jesus do?” (I had fun pronouncing it “Heh Soos” while I wrote this). They often ask this question to a conservative who is a Christian and is, in their opinion, behaving in a mean spirited way. While the inquisitive Liberal may not know a darn thing about Jesus, this is their way of sticking it to the conservative Christian. Clearly, it is an attempt to paint the conservative right as a bunch of two faced hypocrites. Hurting the environment? What would Jesus do? Protesting unfair taxation? What would Jesus do? Against mandatory wealth redistribution? What would Jesus do? The fact is that no one knows exactly what Jesus would do. Since many Liberals would rather read Karl Marx’ Communist Manifesto than they would the Holy Bible, I doubt they will ever know the answer. My favorite interview has been with Catholic Priest in Arizona who seems to know what Jesus would do and he apparently would not send Illegal Aliens back to their homeland. Oh, by the way….92% of this guy’s congregation is Hispanic and presumably not all of them are in our country legally. I know I am going to catch hell from my Catholic friends on this one, but here goes. I really do not think the Catholic Church is in the position to be preaching about human rights at the moment!
So let me get this straight. The Federal Government is refusing to act upon their constitutional duty to protect our borders. Now, the Obama administration is attacking the local authorities in Arizona for doing it on their own. Is the current administration intentionally trying to overrun our country with illegal aliens? Maybe Acorn can get them to be registered voters under familiar names from the NFL. Oopss….sorry, they already did pulled that one. To be fair, the Bush Administration did little to stop illegal immigration. They did start building a fence, which the Obama administration has halted. Maybe the Obama administration can put the illegals to work painting the partially completed fence (Just our side of course - We don’t care about the other side). Oh, and before the e-mails start, I know it is a fence and not a wall so there is really nothing to paint. That is sarcasm.
Let me say this; I do not blame illegal aliens one bit for wanting to be in this country (although I think they are starting to rethink it). So, what would “Heh Soos” do? Perhaps he would feed 5,000 of the hungry Illegal aliens with just 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish. There is no evidence he would sit around and wait for the government to come to the rescue. There is also no evidence that he would advocate mandating that everyone with income surrender a portion of their possessions to the government to be redistributed to the needy crowd.
More progress for woman’s rights in Saudi
A 12 year old girl in Saudi Arabia was forced to marry an 80 year old man against her will. The marriage was reportedly sealed with a dowry of 85,000 riyals ($22,350) and consummated. Now, the Saudi court says she can pursue a divorce. Incidentally, I had to find this in a London paper. No reputable news outlet in America covered it besides FoxNews. Yes, we are sooooo concerned about oppression and abuse of children around the world…except when they are Muslim. That would be poking our nose where it doesn’t belong. Right? So American human rights groups won’t let you buy sneakers made overseas by a 12 year old (when a profit is involved), but they won’t do anything to a religious culture that condones, promotes, and embraces the rape of a little girl. Once again, you have no honor!
ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis Attacks Conservatives, Promotes Socialism
The CEO for Acorn recently spoke to the Young Democratic Socialists. I was not aware there was such a group, but I am not surprised. She told them, “Any group that says ‘I’m young, I’m Democratic, and I’m a Socialist’ is alright with me.” Then, she starts taking shots at the Tea Party. She goes on to say, “We are right now in time that is going to dwarf the era of Jim Crow and segregation. She accuses the Tea Party of being racist. “…blatant uncovering and ripping off the mask of racism….”
This is the organization that received $53 million dollars from the Federal Government since 1994. No, let me state it correctly…..they received this money from taxpayers via the Federal Government! If it were not for a young guy and a hidden video camera, they would still be getting our money. This woman has the gall to take the issue to the Supreme Court. At least they made the right decision. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yH4PYYev1u0
Tiny Iran Doesn’t Pose a Serious Threat to us?
On May 18th, 2008 Barack Hussein Obama announced in a town hall meeting that Iran did not pose a serious threat to the U.S. and that “if Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us, they wouldn’t stand a chance.” NOW who is being arrogant?
Now, fast forward to today. Recently, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates admitted we have no plan or strategy in place to effectively deal with Iran as a nuclear threat. Here is the story, but don’t be surprised. Two years ago, the President told you that Iran was not to be taken seriously. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsxm9HCeOho
Don’t stand up in the island of Guam
Here is a film clip of Congressman Hank Johnson from Georgia asking questions to Naval Admiral Willard, who is the Commander of the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Fleet. The Admiral was appearing in front of the House Armed Services Committee to bring more troops to Guam and the Congressman was asking him questions. This was largely dismissed by the liberal media, but to be a little fair, many thought it so incredibly outlandish that some folks suspected it was an April fool’s joke. Sadly enough, it was not a joke and this man is an elected official representing a district in Georgia. You have to watch this. Words can’t describe….
Wow! A Firing Squad?
Lot's of irony here. A man who shot a Utah attorney 25 years ago in a prison escape, now faces a firing squad if he chooses. Amnesty International says it is cruel and unusual punishment and that the man he killed would not want the death penalty. The man he killed left the Vietnam War and vowed to never use a weapon again, but gave time to defend murderers. I suppose it is common for defense attorney’s to oppose the death penalty (you can’t win them all), but I have never heard a dead one oppose it.
