The Equality and Fairness Doctrine. Is it Racist?

fairnesspic2

The left in America has pushed this Equality and Fairness doctrine for decades believing that it is needed in America because America is inherently a racist nation.  One belief by Liberals is that employers or the bourgeoisie are naturally racist against those of “color.”  When someone goes in for a job interview, and there are multiple applicants to that same position, an employer makes a decision on who is best qualified for that position based on the applicants abilities.  If all of the applicants have the same abilities, then the employer uses the interview as the deciding factor.  Liberals in America tend to insinuate that employers higher less individuals based on the color of their skin, than on their ability. This might happen in a extremely small percentage of cases in this great nation.  However, that said, for Liberals to force employers to employ individuals based on the color of their skin regardless of their skill, is a terrible idea for both the employee and employer.  Why? You are creating an entitlement mentality in the person who is being employed. In turn, they will believe that they deserve certain privileges in life based on the color of their skin.  That alone is contradictory to what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wanted in American society.  Dr King, wanted people to be judged by the content of their character and NOT the color of their skin.  This is not lost to the American Left.  The left does not care about fairness or equality in the terms that most Americans understand it, period.  It is about power and control only.  If the left cared about individuals succeeding in America. They would  would support the Constitution and the rule of law, where everyone has an “equal” chance based on hard work, and merit, not the color of their skin.

     Going back to what I was saying about being bad for the employer that is forced to higher someone who may not be qualified for a job, yet has to take that individual on as an employee because of some arbitrary quota. Let us say, for instance, that this person does not have the proper skill set to perform the task at hand.  If person A(has blue skin color) works for an employer that produces widgets and has green skin, notices that person A is not performing the task that is required. The “bourgeoisie” then has to take time away from his work schedule to try and speak with person A about their bad job performance.  Now, person B(green skin) may face a lawsuit, because person A was given this job based on the color of his/her skin color.  So now the employee will feel entitled to this job, when individuals are given special considerations over another person or group of individuals who can actually perform the task at hand, it creates an entitlement mentality.  So now, the “bourgeoisie” or the employer is unable to fire person A because of their terrible job performance.  Person B is forced to either continue to employee Person A who cannot perform the tasks that are needed, or find another position that Person A can handle, thus creating another problem that could bring about a lawsuit.  If Person B tells Person A that his skill set is not up to par with the standards of the business or the other employees, Person A will consider it to be a “colorist,” statement,  not a racist one, because we are all the same race, proven by procreation.  So now, enter groups like ACLU, NAACP, any group willing to rocket themselves to the center of a problem that was based on the very laws that were forced on the country in the first place, under the guise of “fairness” and “equality.”  How is it fair to employ someone based on the color of their skin and not merit?  What happens if they quit and try to get another job, and cannot, because they have no actual set of skills to perform at higher job levels?  This creates a perpetual problem that no one in this country is really addressing. When conservatives do try and address the underlying issue, Liberals throw the race card around, because they cannot defend their own policies that actually add to any racism in America.  When you constantly tell a certain group of individuals that they are entitled to something, base on how they look, they finally believe it.  Then the problem of racism continues and does not get better.  Which brings me to a few individuals who help perpetuate the problem of “fairness” and “equality.”

     When we become a nation of men and not laws, we enter into situations as I just finished explaining.  President Obama, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, all call for “fairness” and “equality” on the basis of white versus color , rich versus poor, Liberal versus Conservative, and yet none of these arguments are based on merit.  If you have worked hard and earned a good living for yourself, based on merit and the free market system, then it was because of all those other people that you accomplished what you now have.  So now, you must pay more in return for your hard work, to benefit the collective.  If they really wanted equality, why cannot I have fifteen minutes of air time on Al Sharpton’s XM radio show?  Why cannot I not sit in the Oval Office?  The reason being, is, I am not qualified for those positions, not because of my skin color, but because I do not have the proper skills to fill those positions.  I have not worked hard and earned those positions based on the merit of my hard work.  When did those ideas get flushed down the drain?  Why has this culture of dependency and Liberalism taken over such a great nation.  Look at the differences between America now and fifty years ago.  The difference is more people worked hard for what they have.  Now a large portion of America works harder to get what they did not earn.  Why? Liberalism is a parasite on American Tradition, it is a culture of “emotion,” and “collectivism.”  No where in the Left Wing Parties ideals is it based on the merit of the individual.  They draw their ideas from the ten pillars of communism.  If they had any original thoughts, America would not be able to compare so much of their rhetoric to the fallen Soviet Union.

     The past few months in this country have been ridiculous to watch.  So many leaders of the Black Community, on the left of course, are saying that asking an “individual” for their identification card to vote is racist.  Why would they say this?

     One: It is about power and control over the minds of democratic voters, period.

     Two: When Conservatives try to bring this topic up and ask for evidence to prove that this would actually suppress the vote of the black community.  They(leftists or Communists) just continue to throw out the race card and race bait.  They cannot and do not ever offer evidence on how it would actually suppress the vote of minorities.

     Three: The left cannot win elections on merit or hard work, or even rational thought.  They have to use deceit and fraudulent tactics to win elections in today’s society. Even find a way to bring back the dead to vote for them.

     Four: If there was a way for us to validate those who vote, liberals would not be able to use organizations like ACORN to bus voters around the country to different polling stations to vote multiple times to win elections for them.  At the end of the day, America has to make a choice.  If you apply common sense to anything the communists on the left say, it falls flat at your feet.  However, if you want to live off of other peoples dime and hard work, then the left is for you.  If you believe America is racist, oppressive, arrogant, greedy, the Progressive/Liberal/Marxist Party is for you.

On the other hand, IF you believe America was based on the merit of the individual, the content of someone’s character, and NOT the color of their skin. If you embrace economic freedom, liberty, private property rights, voting laws that make sense, true equal opportunity.  Then welcome to the world of Conservatism.

 

Obama calls For Fairness In SOTU




Last night, during his State of the Union address, President Barack Hussein Obama brought up what he defines as “fairness,” where “everyone does their fair share, and everyone plays by the same set of rules.”  [emphasis mine]

On this subject, Obama and I agree. That occurs very seldom, so further investigation is in order. So let’s examine “fairness.”

  • Everyone who travels on Air Force One should pay his/her own way, be they friends of the President, First Lady, or staffers. No average American flies for free. And all flyers should undergo full scanning and/or patdowns by the TSA, just like all average Americans.
  • If Air Force One flyers do not pay a full fare amount (as determined by the CBO), their flight should be counted as income, and they should pay income tax on that amount, just as everyone else does for gifts.
  • First Lady Michelle Obama should not use any tax dollars for personal items, such as clothes or 30 personal assistants. She should be limited to two assistants. Salaries of more assistants should come out of the First Family’s paycheck.
  • If Michelle Obama receives clothes or other things as gifts, those items should count, at full retail value, as income. She must pay income tax on that just as all average Americans do.
  • The Obamas should not take vacations and living lavishly on the taxpayers’ money.
  • Government employees at any level should not be part of a union with collective bargaining that makes political contributions to politicians who vote on their contracts.
  • The average Federal employee can be paid no more than the average American employee, currently $42,000 per year. The problem here, of course, is the definition of an “average Federal employee.” Can we hold a national referendum to answer that question? Would that be fair?
  • The highest amount paid to any retired Federal employee should be no more than the highest Social Security monthly amount.
  • All Federal employees, including Obama, should receive ten percent pay cuts, and only receive raises when the average American earns more. Average Americans have lost ten percent of their income in the past few years.
  • Government employees are able to run for any federal office while holding and being paid for another elected office, but average Americans can’t leave a job for months or years, look for a new job, and still get paid.
  • No employee in any Federal or state job should receive more than one pension.
  • The Senate hasn’t passed a budget in 1,000 days, so they should lose their paychecks and all fringe benefits until they pass a budget.
  • Congressional Senators and/or Representatives (of any party) should not be allowed to invest in any interests for which they have a vote.

It’s only fair that average American voters decide what changes should be made because the Federal government has demonstrated a complete disregard for the financial needs of the average American family.

BTW, the word “fair” does not appear anywhere in the US Constitution.

A Come To Jesus Meeting For Christian Business Owners

If you don’t know what a “come to Jesus meeting” is, the “official definition” from the urbandictionary is:

Getting called on the carpet, dressed down, or otherwise chewed out in a severe manner. Usually used in conjunction with “meetin'” (meeting)

A meeting where someone close to you (e.g. friend, family, etc.) are confronted over behavior that’s causing consternation that’s negatively effecting your relationship.

It’s high time for a “come to Jesus meetin” with Christian business owners. You are being called on the carpet, dressed down, and chewed out in a severe manner because your behavior is causing consternation that is negatively effecting your relationship with the world.

Let’s start at the beginning, shall we? That’s how any “come to Jesus meetin'” starts- at the beginning.

If you claim to be a Christian, that means you identify yourself with the teachings of Jesus Christ- correct?

Where do we get the teachings of Jesus Christ? From The Bible, correct? Yes. So, we will reference Bible Scripture to show the importance of how your behavior reflects Jesus Christ to the rest of the world.

It is very unfortunate that we have to have this meeting, but as is the case with any uncomfortable situation, there comes a point in time where it just cannot be swept under the rug any longer.

When you think about what your character, how do you think people would describe you? This question is for everyone- Christians, and non-Christians alike.

Since this “come to Jesus meetin’ ” is for those who say they are Christ followers, we will focus on those folks for now. We will address non-Christians in another meeting.

For any person, your character is what defines you. If you identify yourself as a Christian, your life should reflect the ways- the character- of Christ.

In defining what the character of Christ is, and therefore, what the character of Christians should be, one word says it all: Integrity.

Integrity is not simply being honest and trustworthy; it is much more than that. The synonyms that are listed for “integrity” are:

candor, forthrightness, goodness, honesty, incorruptibility, principled, purity, righteousness, sincerity, straightforward, virtue

There is honor in living a life of integrity.

In studying the Bible, we see that God’s Word tells us a lot about having- and reflecting- integrity.

    1. Integrity means treating people fairly and honestly. (Leviticus 19:35-36, Deut 25:15, Proverbs 16:11-13)
    2. Integrity is giving your word and keeping it. (Exodus 8:28-32)
    3. Integrity will protect you. In Psalm 25, David prays that integrity and uprightness will protect him. How can it? (Psalm 25:21, Proverbs 2:7-8, 10:9, 11:3, 13:6)
    4. Integrity is more valuable than riches. (Proverbs 28:6)
    5. The Lord will test and judge your integrity. (1 Chronicles 29:17, Psalm 7:8)
    6. The Lord hates lies and lack of integrity. (Zechariah 8:16-17)
    7. It may be difficult to maintain your integrity. (Job 2:3, 2:9, Proverbs 29:10)
    8. Your character can be corrupted by bad company. (1 Corinthians 15:33)
    9. Integrity will be rewarded. (1 Kings 9:4-5, Nehemiah 7:2, Psalm 41:11-12)
    10. Your integrity should set an example. (Titus 2:7)

Now that we have the basics outlined, let’s move on to the next step. Christian business owners.

If you own a business, and you identify yourself as a Christ follower, your business life, business decisions, business practices, the way you treat your employees, the way you treat your customers- all aspects of not only your personal life, but your business life as well, should reflect integrity.

While integrity is something that should be expected from anyone who owns a business, it’s common knowledge that the business world is a very corrupt and cut-throat  environment. For a Christian in the business world, we should be able to expect that their beliefs would dictate their business practices would reflect integrity. The very fact that we have to have this “come to Jesus meetin’ ” means that is not the case. There is definitely a problem that has to be addressed. We can no longer take for granted what should be common practice. It’s time to lay everything out on the table.

These things should be obvious to anyone- Christians and non-Christians alike- but just like those warning labels that say

“Remove occupants from the stroller before folding it.”

There’s a reason why those warnings are there!

You can find a personal example here of how some things should be obvious in business, but that’s not always the case.  This personal example is, in fact, what has precipitated this “come to Jesus meetin’ ” you are attending.

One of the most important choices you must make when you go into business is the name of the business. As a business owner who identifies yourself as a Christ follower, this decision  is even more important if you choose to link your business identity with your personal identity as a Christian.

If you choose a name such as “Heavenly Homes”, “Guardian Angels Security, or  “Integrity Building and Supply”, you need to keep in mind that your business practices will now be judged by more than just your business practices. You have now set the expectation that you are a good, honest, incorrupt, principled, pure, righteous, sincere, straightforward and virtuous business.

It becomes even more important with a name that brings to mind good, honest and forthright actions that you run your business in a way that reflects goodness, honesty and forthrightness. If you do not, you will in fact reflect the opposite: wickedness, dishonesty and deception.

Everything in life is a choice. Every single choice we make has a consequence- good, bad or indifferent. It’s a chain reaction.

Are you and your business practices reflecting the identity you claim?
