Culture wars

So I’m patiently waiting for the usual suspects to start with their “white priviledge” meme since tomorrow is St. Pat’s Day. Because you know that the Irish have spent hundreds of years being “privileged”.  Because when culture come up against culture usually there is some kind of kerfuffle.  Because there will always be people whose heritage is more important than everyone else’s heritage.  Because as humans we apparently can’t possibly not be in competition with everyone else…….because whatever we have, are, do and believe is always better, more important and more relevant than anything anyone else has ever done, said or believed. At least that is what is prevalent social mores say today.

Here’s the thing……on March 17 many people become Irish for the day. Most of the time this does not bother those of us who actually can trace our linage back to the “old country”.  If these people want to wear green, drink green beer, eat corned beef and cabbage and sing Irish drinking songs, more power to them.  Welcome, be our guests.  Appropriate our heritage for the day.

However, if you are going to do that, please do NOT continue to complain because someone dresses up like someone from your special group.  Do not complain because you think someone is “appropriating” your culture.  Do NOT claim yours is the only culture that has been disrespected. DO NOT demand that your culture be elevated over everyone else’s because you’ve been the only “victim” of someone else.  Because that is nonsense. Seriously………

Let me remind you that the stupid leprechauns of the “Fighting Irish” of Notre Dame or the  Boston Celtic’s logo do not remind us of anyone we know.  Most of us don’t drink to excess, we don’t fight with anyone who crosses our path, we don’t scream like fishwives nor do we spend all our time singing drinking songs and we don’t fraternize with the “fey people.”  We don’t make a big deal out of this because truthfully getting our knickers in a twist over stuff like this is counter productive and STUPID.  Frankly there are just too many more things that are more important than your perceived victimhood.

After all the Irish have been victims of the Romans, the Vikings, the English, and a host of other folks including the Americans who during the Famine refused to let ships from Ireland dock in American ports because those on the ships were contagious with things that could be seriously dangerous to the population.  Understandable but still………….

Everyone has issues, everyone has baggage, every culture, race and group. Stop living in the past, stop ginning up grievances, stop blaming your woes on everyone else.  Stand up, stop whining, stop living on the backs of your ancestors (or in many cases not even your ancestors). Start living your own lives, give back, make things better, make better choices, help others, teach your children to take responsibility for THIER own actions, value life, stop being uber sensitive and give people a break.  Then maybe we could all enjoy the best of all cultures without guilt and repercussions.

So now there is a new scandal within the now defunct obama administration (yes I do know how to capitalize proper names but since these people have never earned that I simply don’t do it).  Apparently the former administration went to court to get a FISA  warrant to wire tap a server at Trump Tower.

They were of course looking for the invisible Russians that someone on the Trump team was in contact with. Of course there was NO evidence of this.  The witch hunt has now turned around and started to bite the “dems” in the butt because after being in power for 8 years they’ve had a lot more contact then the Trump people.

Besides since when is speaking to Russians illegal?  I would think that in DC you couldn’t swing a dead cat without hitting a Russian or someone who works for them or someone who spies for them……Seriously?  After all what did they really do except tell the American people their government, the candidate for president and the lame scream media were lying through their teeth.  When last I looked telling the truth wasn’t against the law either.

IF these allegations are true, people need to go to jail.  People need to be fired and then sent to jail. G. Gordon Liddy spent several years in jail for not as traitorous actions. Ollie North lost his job and career for acts that don’t even come close to the things these people have done.

And if they were willing to do this………what else have they done.  The mind boggles.
1. IRS targets Obama’s enemies: The IRS targeted conservative and pro-Israel groups prior to the 2012 election. Questions are being raised about why this occurred, who ordered it, whether there was any White House involvement and whether there was an initial effort to hide who knew about the targeting and when.

2. Benghazi: This is actually three scandals in one: The failure of administration to protect the Benghazi mission; the changes made to the talking points in order to suggest the attack was motivated by an anti-Muslim video; and the refusal of the White House to say what President Obama did the night of the attack.

3. Keeping an eye on The Associated Press: The Justice Department performed a massive cull of Associated Press reporters’ phone records as part of a leak investigation.

4. Rosengate: The Justice Department suggested that Fox News reporter James Rosen is a criminal for reporting about classified information and subsequently monitored his phones and emails.

5. Potential Holder perjury I: Attorney General Eric Holder told Congress he had never been associated with “potential prosecution” of a journalist for perjury when in fact he signed the affidavit that termed Rosen a potential criminal.

6. The ATF “Fast and Furious” scheme: Federal agencies allowed weapons from U.S. gun dealers to “walk” across the border into the hands of Mexican drug dealers. The ATF summarily lost track of scores of those weapons, many of which were used in crimes, including the December 2010 killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

7. Potential Holder perjury II: Holder told Congress in May 2011 that he had just recently heard about the Fast and Furious gun walking scheme when there is evidence he may have known much earlier.

8. Sebelius demands payment: HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius solicited donations from companies HHS might regulate. The money would be used to help her sign up uninsured Americans for Obamacare.

9. The Pigford scandal: An Agriculture Department effort that started as an attempt to compensate black farmers who had been discriminated against by the agency but evolved into a gravy train delivering several billion dollars in cash to thousands of additional minority and female farmers who probably didn’t face discrimination.

10. GSA gone wild: The General Services Administration in 2010 held an $823,000 training conference in Las Vegas, featuring a clown and a mind readers. Resulted in the resignation of the GSA administrator.

11. Veterans Affairs in Disney World: The agency wasted more than $6 million on two conferences in Orlando. An assistant secretary was fired.

12. Sebelius violates the Hatch Act: A U.S. special counsel determined that Sebelius violated the Hatch Act when she made “extemporaneous partisan remarks” during a speech in her official capacity last year. During the remarks, Sebelius called for the election of the Democratic candidate for governor of North Carolina.

13. Solyndra: Republicans charged the Obama Administration funded and promoted its poster boy for green energy despite warning signs the company was headed for bankruptcy. The administration also allegedly pressed Solyndra to delay layoff announcements until after the 2010 midterm elections.

14. AKA Lisa Jackson: Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used the name “Richard Windsor” when corresponding by email with other government officials, drawing charges she was trying to evade scrutiny.

15. The New Black Panthers: The Justice Department was accused of using a racial double standard in failing to pursue a voter intimidation case against Black Panthers who appeared to be menacing voters at a polling place in 2008 in Philadelphia.

16. Waging war all by myself: Obama may have violated the Constitution and both the letter and the spirit of the War Powers Resolution by attacking Libya without Congressional approval.

17. Biden bullies the press: Vice President Biden’s office has repeatedly interfered with coverage, including forcing a reporter to wait in a closet, making a reporter delete photos, and editing pool reports.

18. AKPD not A-OK: The administration paid millions to the former firm of then-White House adviser David Axelrod, AKPD Message and Media, to promote passage of Obamacare. Some questioned whether the firm was hired to help pay Axelrod $2 million AKPD owed him.

19. Sestak, we’ll take care of you: Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel used Bill Clinton as an intermediary to probe whether former Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) would accept a prominent, unpaid White House advisory position in exchange for dropping out of the 2010 primary against former Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.).

20. I’ll pass my own laws: Obama has repeatedly been accused of making end runs around Congress by deciding which laws to enforce, including the decision not to deport illegal immigrants who may have been allowed to stay in the United States had Congress passed the “Dream Act.”

(From the site Natural News.)

 

These are just the top 20.  How many more have been swept under the rug by complicit media lap dogs and sycophants?

So yep, I believe this could happen. As a matter of fact I would be surprise if it were not true.  This is what happens when the guard dogs abdicate their responsibility to guard the hen house.  It’s up to the sheep dogs to step in and protect the chickens, sheep and mindless morons who refuse to wake up and smell the humas burning.

We shall see…..

It’s been a long time.  Four years to be exact.  Why did I stop writing?  Well, having a full time exhausting job cut into my writing time.  Then there was the birth of multiple grandchildren (5, 6 or 7 I forget).  There were job reversals and money woes.  Also keeping up with the obama administration’s scandal propelled tenure was frankly disheartening and depressing. The awfulness of the last election also provided a reason NOT to post  as well as the thought-policing of the internet (hello, 1984).

Mostly though I just didn’t feel the need to write.  I never really thought anyone except a few friends and folks from a certain political satire site ever read what I wrote.  I wasn’t doing it for that reason anyway.  I wrote because I felt inspired to wash the blood from my hands before I shuffled off this mortal coil.  I felt that if I was the lone voice in the wilderness, saying the things that many think but never say, it would be enough.  Eventually the distressing situation many of us find ourselves in became more than I could deal with.  If people wanted to go to hell in a hand basket that was up to them.  Since they didn’t care to hear the truth (which I alway tried to publish) I wasn’t about to make them do so.  Freedom is one of our most important God given gifts and everyone is entitled to throw it away because choice is also one of those given gifts. And to be honest my children are all on Facebook and so there is more than enough “articles” there to be commented on.

So then given all of this, why am I here?  Why bother returning?  Mostly because I missed the writing.  I missed being able to express myself without having to truncate my thoughts to something I hoped people would not ignore because it takes to long to actually read a post.  I’m tired of not being able to express a logical thought to it’s conclusion and I missed the opportunity to be creative in my posts, to make people laugh or cry or infuriate them.

So I’m going to try to do a better job at posting. Maybe one time a week to see how it goes.  If I enjoy it, if it keeps from having to put my hair out (cause sometimes my hair just catches on fire from the sheer unadulterated nonsense that people do to each other) I’ll keep it up.  If it becomes tedious, frustrating and counter productive I’ll stop most likely for good and all. To some that might be a wonderful thing but we shall see.  We shall see.

“But the nation that stands as the symbolic face of the war on terror was nowhere in sight.

Neither President Obama nor Vice President Biden showed up — and in fact, America’s only representative was its relatively unknown and low-profile ambassador to France.

Obama and Biden had empty public schedules Sunday, but the White House declined to comment on why they didn’t go.”

This is what we’ve become.  A nation of bystanders or do nothings.  People who sit and watch as opposed to people who stand up for life and liberty and freedom and choice. Our leaders fete athletes and celebrities, terrorists and criminals but dishonor veterans, mothers, heroes, Christians, Jews and anyone else who doesn’t worship at their altars.

The emperor is no longer the “Promised One” for our European brethren.  They now see what so many of us have been shouting about for the last 7+ years.  These people are useless, incompetent and dangerous.  They are not leaders they are without conscience.  They have NO moral compass nor integrity personal or professional.  Truthfully, if this were any other time in history they’d have been jailed for treason, murder, assault, fraud and a variety of other crimes against the country and it’s citizens.

Here we have in living color a terrorist attack.  It really doesn’t matter what anyone calls it.  Shouting Allah akbar is their war cry.  How could it be anything else?  Were they Muslims? Did they train in Yemen? Were they radicals? Did the French help this happen by their unwillingness to admit the truth, by allowing a minority culture to flourish in opposition to the culture of the majority, by acquiescing to demands that French police and government agencies not have access to certain parts of the county “no go zones”.   This is where appeasement gets us.

We have to accept the truth.  Radical Islam is a fallacy. Islam is a violent, intolerant and dangerous religion.  All one has to know is that Islam suggests that one either converts or dies. It is a culture/ religion that believes that women are chattel and children are collateral damage.  Sorry but I don’t find anything lovely, of good report or praiseworthy where Islam is concerned.  It is a cancer on the boil on the butt of the world (that would be the Middle East, in case you’re confused).

I don’t bash other religions because after all mine has been used, abused and disrespected for quite some time.  But my religion doesn’t suggest that all men should have to sell themselves to the devil for his amusement.  No one should be coerced into believing or belonging to a religion because that is the plan of the destroyer……..choice and accountability, justice and mercy those are the hallmarks of the real God.  Who never changes, who is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Who loves ALL of his children, all ages, genders, races and He loves them whether they’re believers or not. Love is the quality that most describes God, the real one as opposed to Allah who is the servant of Satan because his plan is to make all mankind miserable like unto himself……..and he’s really good at it.

I wrote this in March 2013 and didn’t publish it.  The more things change the more they stay the same it seems.  We apparently aren’t any smarter now then we were 2 years ago, we are perhaps even less smart, which is depressing and disheartening.

When the immigration debate started years and years ago, I had a question.  I still have the same question. I’ve asked it to anyone who displays a proclivity for amnesty.  I’ve asked it to those on the fence on immigration debate.  No one ever answers my question because they don’t really want to think about it.   Here it is the question like the one in Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe.

So if we allow people to enter the country illegally, what other law will they NOT obey because it just doesn’t fit into their personal narrative?  Which laws can be dismissed as simply laws to protect “old white men”?  Which laws will go because they are racially biased or insensitive?  The answer of course is any and every one.  We are now seeing the results of social engineering on steroids. Thousands of illegal immigrants have been released, their crime?   Drunk driving.  That’s right and one has to ask how many times these characters have been arrested, because I’ve never known anyone to go to jail for that (unless they’ve killed people and not even then )

So we have illegal immigrants, felons already, driving a car without a license because you have to have a birth certificate to get a drivers license- so they shouldn’t be able to get a license which is also illegal.   Then there is the  drinking and I’ll bet you a dollar to a donut most of them started drinking when they were not of legal age to drink.

My question is: Why would people who’ve been rewarded when they broke the law (multiple times) seek to obey any laws.

Who’s says you can’t learn from bad experiences.  You can and you should.

Guess what baracky?  I’m not going away.  Go ahead ignore me, marginalize me, I’m not in this for you.  I will continue to call a shovel and shovel, I will continue to shine the light of actual truth on the secret combinations you and your coven are engaged in.  I will continue to remind people what our country was founded on and by whom it was founded. I will continue to cling to my GOD, my GUNS and my country as it was before you fundamentally changed it.

I will also continually fight against obama care, government power grabs and any and all representatives and senators and lobbyists and partisans that support you, that refuse to fight you and that sit on the fence to see which way the people are going to go.  I will highlight those of little or no honesty, integrity and character no matter the color of their skin, the land of their forefathers or their religious affiliation.

I will continue to speak out until you kill me because that is the only way I will remain silent.  I will not go to my grave with the blood of my countrymen on my hands.  I will speak out, I will be THAT woman.  If no one read this blog I will still stand blameless at the last days of treason against my country and my God because I was willing and did remind my fellow Americans what our Constitution and Bill of Rights actually said when it was written, no matter how you change, alter and delete it in the coming eons of your reign.  I will not go away on my own so we will all know what has occurred if I suddenly come up missing, (it’s not like “you people” ie muslims, liberals, socialists, democrats don’t have lots of experience in this kind of activity) everyone will know just who to look to.

So go ahead ignore my blog, blame me for your bad decisions, make me out to be crazy, power hungry and demonic.  It’s called transference and all dictators with delusions of relevancy are prone to it.  Ask Hitler…………when you get where you’re eventually going.  I wonder if all the babies that have been aborted in Illinois will be there to not dip their fingers in the water to quench your fire.  I hope so.  I devoutly hope so.

I was listening to a radio talk show this evening as I was coming back from spending a few wonderful hours with some of the grandchildren. The host was trying to make a point about “welfare” and “obamacare” and the “dole mentality”.  He asked the women if she had only a certain amount of money for groceries for the month and hot dog and steak were on sale which would she buy. She of course said hotdogs because that is what she could afford.  He then asked  her if someone else was paying for her groceries what would she buy and she said
“the steak of course”.  Of course?  Really?  The host also seemed to think this was a no brainer.

Just because someone else is paying for your groceries it’s perfectly OK to buy more expensive stuff?  It’s appropriate to take advantage of someone who’s trying to help you?  It alright to gouge someone who’s coming to your aid, who’s being generous with their surplus because “hey they have more than they need, I should have some too”?

For those who are confused let me clarify.  It is NEVER OK to take advantage of someone.  It is never right to gouge someone who’s trying to help you.  It is never appropriate to take something from someone just because they have more than you do.

The lack of integrity, the lack of self respect, the lack of compassion that this outlines is stunning.  We have lost our ability to think of others, to empathize, to understand.  Some of us simply want more then they have and if they can’t get it legally and morally they’ll take it from everyone else.

Once upon a time there were standards but I guess that’s all so 20th century.  It’s a brave new world, except it isn’t.  We pulled ourselves out of the Dark Ages by our bootstraps.  We had a rebirth where classical standards and cultural mores harkened back to a higher law.  Hopefully we won’t need a plague to bring us to our knees so that we finally can see the depravity we’ve sunk ourselves and our posterity in.  Or maybe we already have.  Pornography passing as literature in schools, violence and sexuality on display on every channel, violence against women and children on the rise all sound like the plague to me.  Of course in the old days you simply died and went on to a better world.  Today you stay alive and  have to marinate in your sins for quite sometime before getting to the point where you seek to be forgiven and by then it’s usually too late.

This is why were at this junction.  This is the time when we either have to put up or shut up.  Me, I’ll always “put up” but I’ll never shut up. That could be a good thing or a bad thing.
