This is an open letter to the entire Democratic Party.
The majority of the United States of America does not want your health care bill. The polls prove it, yet you refuse to accept the fact. You blame racism. I’m going to dispell that right now.
Let me tell you what racism in America is today. Racism is when you vote for someone because of that person’s race, an nothing else. Racism is when you ignore issues, ignore what you stand for, ignore what you know to be right, and instead vote for someone because “it’s time we had an African-American President”. How many African-Americans do you suppose voted for Obama because he’s black whether they agree with his policies or not? How many do you suppose voted for him and didn’t know anything about his policies? How many do you suppose voted for President and left the rest of the ballot blank? I think someone probably has the statistics on that, but we’re never going to see it because it would be WAY too telling. THAT is racism.
Now with that in mind, how do you suppose the election would have gone if Obama wasn’t black? It was a pretty close race. If it had been a landslide I would concede that he won on platform. And by that I mean that he won by convincing enough people that he was the “change” we all needed. But that is not the case. If you eliminate the voters that voted for him simply because he’s black and most likely wouldn’t have voted at all otherwise, he loses.
Here’s the point of this whole thing: If you eliminate the race issue, the election results show us that the majority of America CLEARLY is not on the left. This is simple proof that the majority of America does not want your health care bill. We don’t think that way. We want Liberty more than we want government control. Americans are mostly in the center politically. If every adult in America took a 10-question quiz that was designed to determine their political leaning and was worded in a way that the answers aren’t blatantly left or right, most people would be shown to be in the center. You know I’m correct here even though you tell us otherwise. So with that in mind, what makes you think it’s acceptable to run the country in an extremely leftist way? And make no mistake, that is what you are attempting to do. It doesn’t matter what YOU want if WE don’t support it. You are supposed to represent US. When you stop doing that, you become useless and expendible. You become a problem instead of an asset, something that we need to rid ourselves of. And when we rid ourselves of you, your career-ending agendas will be the only thing to blame. It is such a sad thing that we have to threaten to vote you out in order to force you to represent us. What does that say about you?
If you were to suddenly become honest and find some inetgrity, you would not be able to do this to your constituents.

Let’s look at the facts. Obama called Wright his mentor. He attended Wright’s church for 20 years. He named his book, The Audacity of Hope, after one of Wright’s sermons. Jeremiah Wright was a major force in the development of the man Barack Obama has become. Why is any of this an issue? To answer that question, we have to look at who Jeremiah Wright is. What does he believe, what does he stand for, what does he teach?
Wright was interviewed on the Hannity & Colmes show in March 2007. In that interview, Wright said to Hannity, “Let me suggest that you do some reading before you come and talk to me about my field.” The reading he wants Hannity to do concerns a thing called Black Liberation Theology. He repeatedly asked, as a counter to anything Hannity asked him, “How many of Cone’s books have you read?” The Cone in question is James Cone , author of Black Theology and Black Power.
Cone stated that Malcolm X was “not far off” when he said, “Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community … Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.” To James Cone, all White people are responsible for racism and slavery. It’s every Black man’s responsibility to destroy the White man. These are the values that Barack Obama grew up with. Whether or not he wants us to know it, this is what he believes. How can we make this man our leader?

I’m going to take the easy way out today and post an essay from the History Channel about where Valentine’s Day comes from, followed by a bunch of boring Valentine’s Day statistics. I’ll get political again next time. Continue reading ‘St. Valentine’s Day’

I want to take a sec to ask anyone reading this to have a look at my blogroll. It’s full of sites that do a much better job at this than I can, and my inspiration comes from one or more of them daily. With the biased news media, you need a source of informed opinions, and the blogs are where it’s at.

What do you think when you see a military person in their cammo getup? What is the prevailing feeling that comes over you? If you had to sum it up with one word, what would it be?
I’m not asking if you agree with the war in Iraq. I’m talking about when you see a guy in the convenient store wearing his uniform and you figure he’s probably on his way home from the base, or when you see a photo of a gun-toating Marine somewhere far away from where you are, or a photo of someone graduating from West Point, or of soldiers lined up in their dress blues at a fallen brother’s funeral, what is the emotion that is common to all those images? Your particular circumstance will shape your answer.
I didn’t serve my country. I have a medical defect that got my father discharged from the Army, and since I have it too I figured there would be no use even trying to enlist. As I’ve gotten older I’ve grown more and more regretful about that, and even though it’s something I had no control over I can’t stop wishing that military service was a part of my history. Because of that, I think, the emotion that seeing a serviceman conjurs up in me is different from what some might feel. I suppose a veteran will feel pride. “I did that, I served my country just like that guy is doing.” I feel pride too, a different pride. Mine is more of a “I’m proud of you, proud for what you enable this country to be. Proud to be able to speak my mind openly because of you and those before you.” But that isn’t the prevailing emotion with me. No, as someone who didn’t serve, who didn’t contribute to keeping this country great, the site of a man or woman in the act of serving this country fills me mainly with one thing. I hope it’s the same thing everyone in this country who hasn’t been in the military feels. It’s what you feel when someone does something huge for you without being asked and without expecting a reward.

Here ya go, fresh out of the oven.
Being almost completely code-illiterate, there’s a lot to wrap my noggin around here. But the thoughts my brain keeps cooking up need an outlet, so here it is. I’m working out the bugs, (such as why does this look perfect on my PC at home, but when I pull it up at work the formatting is all different) so if it’s ugly at first you’ll have to cut me a bit of slack. I’ll pretty it up soon.
