The Pledge of Allegiance is Political?

Now, I have heard it all! CBS Sports banned a commercial with a little girl reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. The ad promoted something very American, “The Rodeo,” around September 11th. The little girl in the commercial was the granddaughter of the owner of the company running the ad. He though it was a really cool idea.

Well, the PC police at CBS Sports had other ideas. At first I thought “here we go again.” It has the words “under God” and we don’t want to offend the 20% of the country who doesn’t believe in God and we certainly don’t want them to feel left out. But that wasn’t the problem. Then I thought they must have been tight on time and a 15-second Pledge would have caused them to have to bump one of those commercials with a hamburger-eating, sauce-dripping, car-washing, bikini-clad woman who uses the top part of her bikini to wipe off the BBQ sauce. Nope. That wasn’t what happened either. OK, then WHAT?

The knuckleheads at CBS Sports decided that it was too political. Yup, the Pledge of Allegiance is too political. They won’t return any news organization’s phone calls. They’re CBS. Why should they?

This is just another example of an ungrateful company not understanding what the Pledge actually means!

For those of you who may need a refresher, the Pledge simply means that as Americans we will stand up for the American way of life, it’s freedoms and it’s opportunities and it’s liberties. Hey CBS! Those are the same ones that you used to build your companies! The American tax laws that you take advantage of and the security you feel, in most cases, going to other countries knowing that, as Americans, your company and employees have the United States of America’s resources to protect you!

Unlike some of those 3rd world nations who dictate what news gets broadcast and when and who you hire and fire and if they decide you’re not so good at it they simply take it away from you, you have freedoms here. Go ahead and try to appeal to that 3rd world country’s supreme court. That’d be a joke!

How would you like it if our military refused to take the Pledge and only fought if and when they felt like it and for whatever cause they felt was worthy? With no allegiance to a country, there’s no real reason to fight or uphold its laws.

CBS Sports you are an embarrassment. You have spit in the face of many that came before us to fight and died protecting what the flag and the Pledge represents.

This madness is happening all around the country. I can count no less than 5 recent stories on City Councils that refused to say the Pledge because “there wasn’t enough time.” And even more stories on school districts that have decided reciting the Pledge “once in a while” is good enough.

And what the heck is political about the Pledge? Does it only apply to Republicans? Or only Democrats? Maybe just the decline-to-state or Libertarian or Green Party? I know the Communist Socialist Democrat Party of America finds it offensive. Who cares! If you don’t like it, shut up and sit down because that’s the freedom afforded you the Pledge and by those who came before you who fought and died for your right to disagree without being taken out back and being beheaded.

The NEW Meaning of the Word Transparency!

Depending on the sound clip you find, you will hear Mr. Obama say, “I will have the most transparent administration this country has ever seen” and “transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstone of this administration.” (Insert cricket sounds here.) We have heard this line over and over and over again. As President Obama would say, “Let me be Clear.” Transparency, as defined in Webster’s dictionary, means: Able to be seen through, easy to notice or understand, not secretive, fine or sheer enough to be seen through, free from pretense or deceit, easily detected or seen through, easily understood. Do I need to go on? Come on. Really!?

Mr. Obama, I’m not going to call you a liar. I’ll just let your words speak for themselves. Just recently at a press conference, both of these lines were use in the same speech! “Our objective is clear, and that is to degrade and destroy [ISIL] so that it’s no longer a threat not just to Iraq but also the region and to the United States.” That’s pretty clear. And for further clarity, Webster’s says destroy means; to cause (something) to end or no longer exist: to cause the destruction of (something): to damage (something) so badly that it cannot be repaired.

Now, not being an English major, I can guess that the president is saying he will make it so ISIL no longer exists and will damage it so badly that it cannot be repaired. I’m in! Where do I sign up? But wait! There’s more. He goes on to say; “We can continue to shrink ISIL’s sphere of influence, effectiveness, finance, military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem.”

Me not being an English scholar and believing the president’s meds are balanced and that he knew of what he spoke, I had to be the one confused. Webster’s definition of manageable says: easy to control or deal with. Hmmm? If you are going to deal with or control something doesn’t it have to be in existence? And if he wants to destroy it in one breath (which means to eliminate it) and then wants to manage it in the next sentence (it would have to be in existence to manage) either his teleprompter is messed up or he is confused.

Which is it? Destroy it or manage it? He must be confused since, in his words, he said; “Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstone of this administration.” Is he hiding something from us or not?

He stated we had no plan to deal with ISIS(L). When his generals, and others on his security council, said we have a plan and are waiting on the White House to act, the White House quickly came out and stated what the president really meant was, they were “fine tuning”, “looking at all options”, “hadn’t decided on one.” Transparency, easy to understand, easy to see through, easily detected, easily understood. I’m sorry, but none of this is “easily detected, understood or seen through” aka “transparent.” It’s all pretty hazy if you ask me.

Now, people involved in the Benghazi debacle have come forward stating that orders were in fact given to stand down. Four men who were part of the rescue team who were there to protect the embassy all swear that orders were given to stand down! The White House seems to be in the ever-proverbial cover-thy-butt mode. Why aren’t there any military personnel who can corroborate that the White House gave orders to go early enough to make a difference? One side has all kinds of witnesses. The other side has two. Just Mr. Obama and Mrs. Clinton. Neither has any credibility at this point. Transparency: easy to notice or understand, not secretive, free from pretense or deceit, easily detected or seen through, easily understood. Epic fail!

When Mr. Obama’s administration started moving illegal immigrants that rushed our borders to various communities he only informed the Democrats in those areas. That doesn’t sound very transparent to me. And now he refuses to tell Congress where those kids have been located. HELLO! This is not a dictatorship Mr. Obama! This isn’t the mafia and you don’t get to be Don Obama for a day. You have no right to hide this information from the American people. Transparency: easy to notice or understand, not secretive, free from pretense or deceit, easily detected or seen through, easily understood. Fail, AGAIN!

BTW – We will be spending over $160 thousand per illegal minor. We don’t spend that much on each American citizen child. “Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstone of this administration.” Is he confused, a liar, or a deceiver?

The White house has received over 40 letters from major news sources asking the White House to be more transparent by allowing the press into events at the White House again. I say “again” because the press has been removed from many of the events and functions they were always permitted to go to. They are now given selected pictures and content to print chosen by the White House. Transparency: easy to understand, easy to see through, easily detected, easily understood. Another Obama FAIL!

There have been more lawsuits filed under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) rules, not just requests, but actual lawsuits, because this administration has responded less than all other administrations combined.

Just a couple of quick ones and the sources:

Obama admin thwarting release of public data under FOIA, lawsuit charges: “The civic watchdog group Cause of Action on Monday sued the Obama administration, claiming that presidential attorneys have interfered improperly in the release of public documents under the landmark FOIA law in an effort to curb the release of derogatory information about the White House. The lawsuit … names 12 federal agencies that the group says slowed the release of documents so officials could consult with White House attorneys under a review process established in spring 2009. FOIA analysts say this practice never occurred in prior administrations.” (The Washington Times)

Administration won’t reveal records on health website security: “[T]he Obama administration has concluded it will not publicly disclose federal records that could shed light on the security of the government’s health care website because doing so could ‘potentially’ allow hackers to break in. … The AP is asking the government to reconsider. Obama instructed federal agencies in 2009 to not keep information confidential ‘merely because public officials might be embarrassed by disclosure, because errors and failures might be revealed, or because of speculative or abstract fears.’ Yet the government, in its denial of the AP request, speculates that disclosing the records could possibly, but not assuredly or even probably, give hackers the keys they need to intrude.” (Associated Press)

And the New York Times, always known for being such a conservative publication, states: …..

Heil Putin! Our New Supreme Commander in Chief.

Yes, Heil Putin! Get used to it. Who’s going to stop him? Comrade Vlad came out this week and basically said Russia has nuclear weapons so we will do what we want, where we want, and your mouse of a president will do nothing. Remember that little slip last year when President Obama told then-President Medvedev to tell Vlad he will be more flexible after the election? He must have meant flexibility to back off supporting our allies and do nothing.

Supreme Leader Vladimir Putin shows the kind of resolve and strength America should be showing, with one minor difference, we would not be doing it for world domination but for world peace. The over-educated progressive Left doesn’t believe in the 21st century that countries still do this! Countries don’t go take over other countries by force. They don’t topple governments by force. But Vlad said early on, it wasn’t them, it was the “Rebels.” You know, the Russian-paid, Russian-trained, Russian transplants, that were, dare I say it, Russian soldiers AKA the “Rebels”. Why would he lie? They are a civilized country! Right?

Secretary Kerry was even stunned when he heard, as he was giving a speech overseas, that Russia was invading Crimea and said, “That just doesn’t happen in this century.” Was he channeling Bagdad Bob? Really? It was, and still is, happening Mr. Kerry. Are you willing to admit it?

At first I was thinking that our military had fallen down on the job or that our intelligence teams were so bad that they weren’t supplying this information, but given the recent day’s events where retired and active military Generals have said, we knew, we briefed, we have a plan but the White house refuses to act says volumes.

Why would the activist-and-cheat sitting in the White House acting as our leader not have known this? Does his cell phone not work on the golf course?

President Obama said this week that it’s not America’s problem! HUH? Germany wasn’t America’s problem either. Let that one sink in! As Hitler marched across Europe and we were being asked for help, also under a Democrat president, we were told we needed to stay out of it. We were sitting here full, dumb and happy, that is, until it crossed “over here” when they launched the greatest attack on American soil in history at that time. The Japanese pretty much wiped out our Pacific fleet. Thanks again to a few disobedient officers we had just enough ships left to stand up and fight. Yup, let’s stay out of it. That’s always worked well for us.

California legislative loons pass law that flies in the face of federal laws!

Labor Day? Happy American Dream Day!

Most of you know today as Labor Day. What exactly is Labor Day? Sounds like a day to celebrate work, but it isn’t. Maybe it’s a day where we celebrate the ability for women to give birth? Nope, not that either.

Labor Day isn’t just a day off with pay. And it’s not BBQ at the beach or a celebration of the end of summer.

Actually, it’s a day for us to celebrate workers. But who really loves to work? Wouldn’t most people love to have enough money not to have to work? So, why do we celebrate the American worker?

Originally, Labor Day was an olive branch extended by President Grover Cleveland after he sent American troops in to stop the railroad workers strike and 12 workers were killed in the process. He gave them a day off (with pay?) to let things settle down. Cleveland’s olive branch withered and the celebration died away.

I appreciate the sacrifices that the American worker has made over the years to feed their families, buy homes and cars, provide their children’s education, and make a good life. But isn’t that what the American Dream is all about?

In the early days of America we had many shameful moments. Workers were taken advantage of. Working 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, being replaced permanently if they were out sick a day or two, and even plant workers being beaten for not working hard enough. Barbaric!

But that was then. America has come a long way. I’ll even give the unions credit for helping to make working conditions fair and give workers some protections. But somewhere along the way, like with any big corporation that disconnects from its people, they went bad. Yes, bad.

Workers’ salaries shouldn’t be based on what the company makes, it should be based on a fair days wage for a good days work. In most cases, the worker doesn’t lose his investments, 20 years of sweat, his home and cars if the company goes out of business. Business entrepreneurs very often do! Workers can usually get a job in the same industry. There is no real risk being an employee.

The owner of the company usually puts up his house, his name, his reputation, and all his assets to borrow money to start the company up and running. It’s the entrepreneur that comes up with the idea, figures out how to produce it, figures out how to bring it to market, and figures out how to make a profit on it so he can hire the laborer. Then the laborer can show up, do his job, feed his family, afford a house, and so on. Once in a while, one of those workers rises up, figures out how to do it better, starts their own company, and becomes an entrepreneur. That’s the real American dream… freedom to make money to live comfortably after hard work and ingenuity! Sadly, that’s also what the unions seem to hate the most, entrepreneurs.
It’s unclear who the brainchild behind Labor Day was. Many credit Labor Day to Peter J. McGuire, cofounder of the American Federation of Labor. Others have suggested that Matthew Maguire, a secretary of the Central Labor Union, first proposed the holiday. Either way, it was union officials making a big deal out of union workers.

The Slaughter of the Children

The Blood of Christian and Jewish Children is on Your Hands

Left-leaning news sources have been screaming about the death toll of children in the Middle East and all the kids that Israelis have killed. For them, collateral damage is unacceptable in any way.

Even though the Jews have emailed, mailed, dropped leaflets, called, and used loudspeakers in advance of planned attacks to warn the Palestinian people that rockets are coming and they are bombing building A or B, the Palestinians choose to stay and die in the bombings with their children. Kids are carried out, their lifeless bodies are a tragic scene, and it’s unacceptable.

But what is truly unacceptable is the fact that Palestinian parents who have been warned repeatedly in advance are ignoring the warning. Why aren’t they getting those kids out of there at any cost? You know, like the South America parents sending their kids for miles and miles alone on top of trains through dangerous areas to get their kids to the United States? Do those parents just love their kids more? You decide.

I posted pictures on Facebook (after I stopped throwing up!) People were outraged. Some said they were doctored or were inappropriate to post. These pictures were of little kids lined up on the ground with their heads removed from their bodies and placed next to them. Some bodies were cut in half. Some pictures showed the necks of these kids (babies) being sliced with what looked to be a steak knife and drained into a bucket. The outrage was deafening! Not really. I thought I had gone deaf because I heard nothing! Where is the outrage about that?!

There seems to be a common thread to reporting on violence by the mainstream media. They only show what they want you to see to get you on their side. If someone like myself shows the REAL violence, the REAL pictures, the REAL savagery of what’s taking place over there, its inappropriate. Are you serious?

The cries for Israel to stop bombing innocent children in Palestine is on practically every news channel, every minute of the day. Think about it, these are cries for Israel to stop defending itself because Palestinian kids were dying accidentally (or not so accidentally for those parents who chose to remain in an area they were warned would be bombed).

Yet those same Americans are crying to allow those kids who crossed our border illegally to remain in the United States simply because they traveled up from their crime and drug-infested cities for a better and safer life. Supposedly, we had to let them stay because if we sent them back they would surely die.

But we can stand by and watch Christian kids being butchered in the Middle East in the name of a Muslim god and do nothing about it? That doesn’t even make any sense!

There is No War on Religion, It’s on Christianity!

Let me start by saying, I understand that there is a physical war In the Middle East on Jews. But what I am dealing with here is the on-going war in this country on Christians.

You separation-of-church-and-state people seem to be very silent on favors provided to other religions, yet start foaming at the mouth when the words “cross,” “Bible,” “Christ,“or any scriptures are used.

A few weeks ago, the Freedom from Religion Freaks (aka: Freedom from Religion Foundation – FFRF) lost a lawsuit they filed against the 9/11 Memorial Museum. They claimed that displaying the cross that was left at the bottom of the rubble (not manmade) that served as a symbol of hope to the first responders, Jews, Christians, Atheists and others during that tragedy was a clear violation of the separation of church and state. Once again, they were wrong.

The courts sided with the American people and said that not only was it a symbol of hope, but it was part of our national heritage and history. They said, “[Given] the absence of any evidence of ulterior religious motives, and the undisputed historical significance of The Cross at Ground Zero, we conclude that, as a matter of law, the record compels the conclusion that the actual purpose of displaying the cross in the September 11 Museum is a genuine secular interest in recounting the history of extraordinary events.”. One of the arguments from the atheist group was that the cross caused “dyspepsia” to some of the plaintiffs who had to walk by it. My thought! Take some Pepto-Bismol. The “ailment” equates to an upset stomach.

Then there was the attempt to remove Bibles from U.S. Navy lodges around the globe. The group claimed that offering Bibles to guests constituted an endorsement of a religion so they needed to be removed. I’ve never heard of anyone walking up and down the lodge halls screaming, “Get your Bibles here, brand new never opened, get ‘em while there free.” Nope, not one complaint about Bibles being pushed on anyone. They’re in a drawer in each room given free of charge by the Gideon’s. The people complaining are not being honest. If it was an issue of religious freedom, then let’s put the Bible, Quran, Torah, dictionary, or whatever religious text we can get our hands on in those drawers and let them chose what to read or not read. Nope. They only complained that the Bible needed to go. Navy brass came to their senses and backed down because of the outcry of the many as opposed to doing what a very few loud mouths wanted.

In a small town in Georgia, the atheist group threatened to file suit against a school because the kids were praying before football games. They said they had received “a” complaint from a single, unnamed parent. The atheist group was not from the community. They didn’t know who they were playing with. Remember, we are supposed to have a representative government, not a government of the smallest and loudest. Well, these people got a taste of southern law. Over 200 people showed up to support the teams in prayer. And they prayed before the game. No one exploded. No one went into convulsions. And no lighting struck any one of them. All was well in that little Georgia town. The atheists are all legalled-up and ready for battle. Why? Why does something that supposedly doesn’t exist make them so crazy? Why can’t they respect the wishes of the masses instead of the wishes of a few?

It’s Israel’s fault! No, really!

So as soon as you pick yourself up off the floor, read the rest and I am sure I will make you mad all over again.

This fight between Israel and Hamas is Israel’s fault and I’ll tell you why. If you’re not interested in what I have to say or you believe I am full of “malarkey” or you just don’t want to think that deep, simply move on to another article.

The aggravation between these two groups has been going on for years, but this is the longest the fighting has persisted since the last extended conflict which lasted about 22 days.

Israel has the intelligence and the manpower to eradicate Hamas. Some of you complaining about Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians are a little confused. You see, when the Palestinians were given more land and “the strip,” the Israelis left behind schools, clinics, gardens, greenhouses, and much for them to sustain themselves and have a better life. Palestinian militants were forbidden from receiving anything from the “Zionists,” so they destroyed most of the facilities Israel left behind.

Money sent over to the coalition government in order for them to build facilities to help their communities has been stolen by Hamas to buy weapons, bombs, and build tunnels. (Maybe there is some educational value to this? Maybe they are teaching the kids about architecture and construction? Who knows!)

Why isn’t there an outcry about this?

Imagine Hamas tying children all around one of their soldiers then going through a Jewish village randomly killing Jews and shouting “you can’t shoot at me because you might hit one of these kids.” Jews are persecuted because, in an attempt to save the lives of villagers, they accidently killed one of the children when they took out a Hamas terrorist.

That’s what’s happening now. They are firing rockets from inside school grounds, mosques, and hospital facilities and the expectation is that Israel shouldn’t shoot back because they might hit the kids! How about Hamas shouldn’t fire first from areas where kids and the infirm can be killed? How about Hamas stop shelling Israel?

As for the Palestinians, where are they in all of this? Why aren’t they protecting their people? Why is it they don’t control their crazies?

Their kids are being killed because of the actions of Hamas. We praise South Americans as heroes for sending their kids alone to the American border facing all kinds of peril. Yet we say nothing about the Palestinians that are allowing Hamas to cause the death of their kids without any resistance!

Why did I say its Israel’s fault?

I Told You It Wasn’t a Woman’s Health Issue !

I have been saying, to the irritant of my friends on the Left, that abortion has nothing to do with women’s health.

One of the original questions the Supreme Court had to deal with in the seventies when they approved this “slaughter law” was, when does life begin. Well, all the academics and doctors that were willing to take some money and testify said life did not start until the third trimester.

Remember, this was a time when cancer was almost always fatal. AIDS was a death sentence, and, in some cases, people still died from the flu.

Medicine has come a long way since then. And now, many agree, scientists and doctors alike, that life begins at conception or shortly thereafter.

Dr. Bill Fifer, a professor of psychiatry at Columbia University, said, “Everything that a newborn baby does, a fetus has pretty much done already.” He went on to say “We know that a baby’s tiny heart is beating as early as 18 days after sperm-egg fusion. Brain waves are detectable by 6 weeks and babies can experience dream (REM) sleep by 17 weeks. Substantial medical and scientific evidence has demonstrated that unborn children are capable of feeling pain by 20 weeks, if not earlier.”

Not Joe Messina’s opinion, but science. This is now the understanding of many in the medical field. However, I am still perplexed. You see, the Left continually beats on Right-wing, conservative, Bible-thumping Republicans (like myself) for not believing in science but rather the fairy tales of the Bible.

But when confronted by science and facts (not theories like, let’s say, evolution) that don’t line up with their way of thinking they ignore them and tell us that we hate women (in the case of our abortion stance.) Why? Because is easier than discussing the facts.

So, if at 18 days that little blob of cells has a heartbeat, what can we call it? What will it eventually be? A canine? A fish? A tree? Nope. Simply, a human. Its only potential outcome is that it is a developing human!

Now with science we can see with sonograms and 3-D imagery what the baby looks like. We can’t run from that truth. Our youth are seeing it more and more and are changing the way they view abortion.

So then… it is a life! But what about the argument for years from the Left and the pro-abortion groups that it’s not a life? As of late, some of the abortion proponents are saying that life begins when the mother says it does, that the unborn blob of cells can be snuffed out even up to the time it’s exiting the birth canal. Wow! That’s a stretch!

But wait! Jodi Jacobson, Editor in Chief of RH Reality Check, a Reproductive and Sexual Health and Justice blog says it was never when life beings because “life begins at conception.” Huh?

OMG! Wasn’t the abortion debate all about women having access to clean safe medical facilities so that when they were seeking this “medical procedure” the mother’s health would not be at risk? The fetus, or as it’s been called “blob of cells,” needed to be removed to save the mother.

You were duped!

Leader of the Free World?

I have heard the term leader of the free world for years, but never stopped to think about what “the free world” really meant.

According to the dictionary:

1) – The Free World is a Cold War–era term for the non-communist countries of the world. The free world included countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Canada, West Germany, Australia, and countries belonging to organizations such as the European Community and NATO. In addition, the “Free World” occasionally includes the Commonwealth realms, Japan, Israel, and India.

2) – the part of the world where democracy and capitalism or moderate socialism rather than totalitarian or Communist political and economic systems prevail

President Obama is referred to as the “Leader of the free world.” To be fair, all American presidents since the Cold War-era have been referred to as the leader of the free world.

The reason they were given that title was because of the freedoms that Americans enjoyed and the support that the American government gave to nations that were free or wanted to be free but may not have had the “military or economic muscle” to make it happen.

The Obama Administration said the “world was pretty tranquil” at a recent press conference. Obama himself said there has never been a better time to be alive, with all the world peace, tranquility and economic activity. It’s a great time to be alive. Hmmm, really? On what universe?

Are You a Racist?

Are you a racist? Yes, you are. Good, I have your attention. I just wanted to see if I could get your attention by calling you a racist, since it’s what everyone else does. Today the word hardly holds any meaning. One group uses it to try to make another group feel bad or to get the attention of others that might come to help pile on. In some cases they use it simply because they’ve got nothing else to debate with!

Webster says racism is:

1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine  cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.

3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races.

Well, the first misnomer is the word “race.” We are all part of the same race… the human race! We are made up of many ethnicities and cultures, but, last I checked, scientists still call all of us the human race.

Many of those on the Left consistently call Conservatives, Christians, religious, Republicans and other “non black” people racists. Why? Because we are one of the 4 labels previously listed. And to add frosting to that cake… we aren’t Democrats.

According to “them” I am a racist because I think the current president is a loser. That he can’t govern. He treats his job as if he is the president of a country club and all he has to do to get what he wants is raise membership dues. Why does that make me racist? Because he is black and I am white. Not because I am expressing my own opinion about his job performance (or lack thereof) but because of my color that they brought into the conversation.

Yet none of that fits the true term or even comes close to the definition of racism

According to “them” I am a racist because I think the flood at the border, prompted by this administration, by people who stay here illegally is a problem and I want the border and the American Laws protected and adhered to. How does that make me a racist? Again, I can’t find a connection between the real meaning of racist and me simply wanting the rules followed.

Remember, over 80% of the people who arrive here illegally, are processed, and given a notice to appear within 15 to 20 days in court never show up. They never had an intention to show up. If you support that kind of action then you support breaking the law and from my point of view you are not a racist but an accomplice to the crime and should be punished accordingly.
