Two Kinds of Americans

 

Lately, it’s been more than difficult to watch the news and it is becoming even harder to bear witness to our country’s slow and agonizing destruction. It is as if we are passengers on a plane that has been hijacked by a group of intruders who resemble nothing American, and we are sitting in our seats, mouths agape, in utter shock and disbelief that we put ourselves on this freefall flight to oblivion.  

While it is true that our current government has accentuated the lines of class warfare and amplified racial divide, an even more ubiquitous divide currently exists in this country. It exists not only in our government, but also in our towns, our schools, within our businesses, amongst our corporate executives, entrepreneurs, welfare recipients, and even in our own families.

This division is a deeply held and indelibly formed bias embedded within the psyche of every American. It is a personal worldview conceived within the constructs of one’s childhood, life experiences, and beliefs; one that either subconsciously or consciously views America as a valiant defender of freedom and gracious world leader, or an intrusive, arrogant bully that imposes itself on the rest of the world.

Evidently there are Americans who truly believe they are victims of somebody, a mindset that fuels the drive to get the guy responsible for their predicament, one unequivocally exhibited by the recent IRS scandal. These victim-minded Americans also believe they deserve retribution for their plight and are therefore entitled to receive subsidy from their errant rivals. On the other side of the divide

The Hypocrisy of Biden's "Morality" on the Abortion Issue

While Paul Ryan did pretty well defending the point that abortion is principally and morally wrong during the debate last night, what he didn’t do was call Joe Biden out on his hypocrisy on the issue. Liberals hate it more than anything when you reveal their own double standard to them.

After hearing Joe Biden assert his personal beliefs against abortion, Ryan should have asked, “If in principle abortion is wrong and you would never imagine it for yourself or your family, than why is it just fine for someone else? Are there other principles in which you believe yet do not defend?”

Then he could have revealed the arrogance of Biden’s point of view by saying, “Do you hold yourself to a higher standard than other persons? Principles are principles and we impose them on society everyday. There are laws against murder, and abortion is murder. Law enforcement agents tell people what to do with their own bodies when we enforce seatbelt laws and laws against illegal drug use. We, as leaders of this fine country that was founded on principles that are true and good, should uphold those priniciples and should be concerned for the safety and well-being of its citizens.”

Planned Parenthood is one of the most unsafe and unsanitary facilities in our country. Women have suffered terrible consequences physically, psychologically, and emotionally, from having abortions. There are numerous charitable organizations in America, including Catholic Charities that would provide shelter, medical needs, and counseling to help a woman during and after pregnancy. There are countless couples seeking to adopt children and provide for them a safe and loving home. Providing assistance to the living is what is noble and good. We call this charity, a virtue derived from love and concern for one another’s well-being.

Holocaust survivor and author Elie Wiesel once said, “We know that every moment is a moment of grace, every hour an offering; not to share them would mean to betray them. Our lives no longer belong to us alone; they belong to all those who need us desperately…And that is why I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”

As a pro-choice candidate, Mr. Biden, you are choosing to remain neutral in the face of human suffering. You are choosing to turn your back on a tragic injustice. This is not charity, this is cowardice. 

Women - minority women in particular - and their children, the most innocent of society, are suffering. And liberals, under the pretense of respect for choice, continue to support and fund the gas chambers of America.  This is not respect for life, it is legal infanticide of catastrophic proportion in which our country can no longer afford to remain silent.          

 

Schools Need to Return to High Standards and Common Decency

 

Some of you may be aware of a controversial book that has parents concerned in New Jersey, and several other states. This book, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie can be found on many intermediate school library shelves and has become required reading for our freshmen high school students. I am writing today because I would like to address what I feel is an even greater concern that we are facing today as parents and educators.

Most people would agree that our country’s film and music industry often, shall we say, “lacks etiquette.” It is not surprising that young adult fiction has rapidly followed suit. What is surprising is that many of our schools have succumbed to the influence by throwing their high standards to the wind and adopting these unsuitable works into their curricula. While it is apparent that the naïve and simple adolescent world of Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys is virtually extinct, what has not been quite as evident is how far young adult fiction has descended from that world and has begun to infiltrate our schools.

These days if a novel happens to slip under a parent’s radar it could be a costly price for their child to pay, as the contents of many of these young adult novels deemed educational would distress any principled adult. It seems that the infliction of impropriety through the media has created an overall deadening of the senses and has given way to the adaptation of an “anything goes” philosophy in many of our schools.

A Couple of Real Life Crony Capitalists

Sarah Palin's latest speech at the Iowa Tea Party last week has received a lot of attention - even positive attention from the NY Times - due to its effective and groundbreaking content. Palin spoke extensively about crony capitalism, and what she calls the "permanent political class" on both sides of the party line. These are the wealthy, intellectual elitists of America who have made it so big that their egos have become as overblown as their bank accounts. Consequently, they have determined that they know what's best for us "regular people." Forget vast right-wing or left-wing conspirators, these permanent political class leaders are in a party of their own and they have been conspiring together like one big Mensa meeting-of-the-minds as a totalitarian faction.

We Americans should be most angered by these crony capitalists in our country because in retrospect, they are responsible for the world's hatred toward us. If anyone has blood on their hands, it's the corporate crony capitalists because they misrepresent what a free market society is all about. They have mastered the art of using taxpayer money to pad their own pockets and have deceived the American people with false representation so they can either accumulate more wealth or strategically position themselves for re-election.

Let's consider some real life leaders from this permanent political class that Palin was referring:

Example #1: Michael Bloomberg. Here is a self-appointed third term mayor of New York City with a net worth of over $18 billion. Bloomberg made a determination that he was above the law and disregarded the voice of the people despite numerous polls that showed widespread support for term limits in the few months leading up to his election. In 1993 and 1996 city voters passed term limits by overwhelming margins,

Government: Our Higher Power?

The reason why many people on the left think they need government to control the economy and spending is simply because they don’t have faith in their fellow mankind. Why is this? Part of the reason is they think most of us are incapable, full blown idiots who don’t have the capacity to earn our own money and, those who do, lack the authenticity to aptly spend it. However, the main reason is because most people lack faith, period. They lack faith in others, but what they don’t realize is that they also lack faith in themselves. What we portray onto others is a reflection of what we see, or what we don’t see, in ourselves. And they lack faith in themselves because they don’t believe we were all created in the image and likeness of God.

There is a correlation between those who are unfaithful and those who believe that people need to be “controlled” by people, or by higher authoritative power – complete government control. They don’t believe in a higher power so they believe that matters must be taken into their own hands and those who “know better” have to establish order and delegate spending. As we have recently seen, a disguised form of socialism has already been established in our country. Ultimately, a Totalitarian system that is created by the people results in greater oppression of the people it was designed to “serve.” Government control of the people, when taken to an extreme, further demands the abolition of both
