Trick or Treat?

I grew up in Southern West Virginia in the 1950s to the mid 60’s. Out houses were more common than indoor facilities. They were freestanding buildings sitting on top of a hole in the ground and prime for Halloween pranks. Inevitably, our roving band of 10-12 year olds would tip some of them over on Halloween night. More deviously, however, for those who truly deserved our attention, we would pick some up and move them behind the hole. Late night or early morning visits by the deserving, yet unsuspecting, could be an adventure – a breath taking adventure. If you were ornery with us sometime during the year, we remembered you on Halloween night. I guess we were the stinking terrorists of our time.

The difference between us kids and Washington politicians is that we did not pretend that our intent was something other than causing people to step into a crap filled hole in the ground. We wanted them to do that otherwise there was no point to our mischief. Washington’s collection of con-artists try to convince the people that the hole is filled with rose petals and rolling around in it is nothing short of blissful utopia, unlike anything the senses could possibly imagine. What is in the hole, they insist, is so wonderful that all Americans must take a voluntary dip into it because it is simply what is best for them and the country. This is how we end up with government run health care and other grand social chicanery.

In the steep hills and hollows of Southern West Virginia, you can find generations who are enslaved by this kind of thinking. Political shenanigans keep the voting block on the public dole. It is not unlike some of our nation’s liberally run cities with which you are probably more familiar. They too have generations living on the public dole. It is an industry that takes, but does not return anything to the society that supports it. Its benefactors then are told to demand that the rest of us pay a fair share. Clearly the 53 percent of us who actually pay do not pay enough. The television cameras do not show up to broadcast the plight of Southern Wild and Wonderful to the nation as they might do with run down and dilapidated dumps like Detroit. Even if they did, greedy rich people would be blamed and not the guilty corrupt, quasi communist politicians and people who refuse to take charge of their own lives.

What little prosperity there is in that part of my beloved state is now threatened by the liberal war on coal production, which is also a war on the payrolls that support the state’s economy and provides tax revenues. Not surprisingly, the Democrat politicians from our state’s political families, whose unshakable loyalty to the party and its leaders who have worked hard to increase the size of the dung hole, now run public service ads declaring how hard they are fighting against the people who want to destroy the coal industry. When you hear it, it is enough to make you shoot the coffee you might be drinking right out of your nose. On the enslaved who continually vote them back into office, it is a con that obviously works well.

Obama Tightens Screw on America’s Coal Supply

Nearly half of Americans do not pay any taxes now. More are also on food stamps than ever before. There appears no end to unemployment benefits – for those who actually had a job once. Our major entitlement programs cannot continue in their current form. Your government check is underwritten by red China. There is your rose-petalled utopia – maybe trimmed in Chinese jade. Swell, is it not? Just for a bonus here in wild and wonderful there is a lawyer advertising on the television during every commercial break. Let us sue a car insurance company for you. Let us sue your doctor for you. Let us sue the company or coal mine that gave you a job. Let us sue the government entitlement programs, just choose one. “Let us get you the money you deserve.” Just call Dewie, Cheatem and Howe, Attorneys at law. Yes sir. Let us fill your hole up with rose petals.

Well mountain people and the rest of America, you are not getting any rose petals. Sorry, it just does not work out that way. Those go to the politicians and leach lawyers, which are interchangeable. You may get the thorny stick that the rose was on and possibly a spot in the dung hole. If I were you, I would just go occupy something and make some people pay, but not the outhouse. It is Halloween after all. Or, you can pull yourself up out of that hole. Your choice – for now.

Arlo’s daddy was a communist

And the fruit did not fall far from the tree. Hearing that Arlo Guthrie turned out to support the communist occupation of Zucotti Park was no surprise. Where else would one expect a 1960’s hippie anti war communist to be, besides Alice’s Restaurant? Like daddy’s song said, this land is your land. Private property? Who needs it? This land was made for you and me.

As I was walkin’ – I saw a sign there
And that sign said – no tress passin’
But on the other side …. it didn’t say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me! – Woody Guthrie

It only surprises me that Hanoi Jane Fonda and Genghis John Kerry have not linked arms and strolled through Zucotti Park proudly displaying their communist North Vietnam flags. Their glory days revisited. Come on Johnny, you can throw someone else’s medals at the Wall Street bankers.

“I would think that if you understood what Communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees, that we would someday become communists.” – Hanoi Jane Fonda

I always wanted ask Jane to whom does a communist pray? Shallow rich liberal. She would blend in well at Zucotti Park. Maybe the occupiers would pray to her then return to raze Zucotti Park in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan.

I suspect that if your mother was a communist, if your father was a communist, if the grandparents who raised you were communists, if your adolescent mentor was a communist, chances are you did not fall far from the tree either.

History has not broken through to the liberal mind otherwise they would know how communism turns out for “the people.” Typically it ends with mass murder of millions in a fashion reminiscent of Joseph Stalin, Mao Tse-tung, Pol Pot, the North Korean Kim Clan, and Ho Chi Min. Not to steal any thoughts from Dick Durbin. We know how communism turns out and it never turns out well, yet we still cheer for it. Be careful for what you pray Jane.

Some old sage once said that if you live long enough you will see things twice.

In 1979, “we” were thrilled that we helped depose the Shah of Iran so that he could be replaced by a moderate religious man. I still recall hearing the breathless, excited reporting of ABCs Peter Jennings as Khomeini entered Tehran while the masses cheered the end of what little freedom they did have. I suppose that was the Persian spring or maybe the Islamic spring. Whatever you call it, we encouraged it and we also know how that turned out.

Clearly we learned nothing. We cheered the Arab Spring. Meanwhile the Egyptian Army busies itself cleaning the remains of Coptic Christians from the wheel wells of their armored vehicles. In Libya, we assisted, then watched while a country’s leader no matter that he was a vile human, was captured alive and then summarily executed. Not much outrage there because we are seeing freedom spread by the Arab Spring while Libya’s interim leader assures us that in Libya, Sharia will be the basic source of all law. He is the interim leader because the caliphate has not decided which Ayatollah will take charge. We are cheerleading for the same outcome in Syria. Is it not interesting to you that we support deposing oppressive yet secular Arab leaders, but when the people of Iran wanted to throw off their oppressive Islamic Thugocracy our stated national position was that we should not meddle. It is a head scratcher. Not to worry though. We know how these things turn out.

Bugging out. Yes, I do believe we have been too long in Iraq. We were too long in Vietnam too. Both thanks to politicians. I have resisted drawing any parallels between Vietnam and Iraq. But, now I am forced to do it. Forgive me, my brothers in arms, but once again Washington’s politicians have turned your military victory into a political defeat. Not to worry, they will again not take responsibility for the generation of young men and women mentally and physically scarred by their wars and political fiasco. The defeat is yours. There will be no welcome home celebrations for you other than those provided by your grateful families. Sadly, we know how this turns out for “the people” in Iraq. Much the same way it turned out for the Vietnamese who were murdered outright for supporting US Forces or forced into communist reeducation camps, or like the Cambodians whose lives ended in Pol Pots killing fields. But, politicians were not responsible for any of that, it was just a product of misguided military adventurism.

Freedom loving people of Iraq, do not concern yourselves. We know how this will turn out. We left Soldiers in Germany and since there has been peace in Central Europe. We left Soldiers in South Korea and there has been peace and much prosperity. We left Soldiers in Japan and there has been peace and prosperity. Your peace and prosperity is in the hands of the Persians and their allies in Washington and inside of Iraq. Do not worry peace and prosperity is near.

When you know how things turn out, it is probably a good idea to reinforce and stock the personal bunker.

Revolting Revolution

People who have been in this world awhile and experienced life in America at its toughest and at its best are expressing fear. I have been personal witness to it. It is fear of a revolution and not one in the spirit of the first American Revolution. They fear one that ends in death, destruction, and loss of their freedom. It is a revolution that “fundamentally transforms” the United States of America from a Constitutional Republic into a Chairman Mao-like communist dictatorship. One that extinguishes the true beacon of “hope” that the United States of America has been to the un-free world since its founding and transforms it into gulag America.

It is a revolution whose logical outcome is the total annihilation of the strong American middle class for which the communists always profess to fight – the strong middle class that is and has always been the backbone of our national strength and character. Take down the greedy banks they preach. Protect the down-trodden middle class. And the stupid trust fund kiddies camped out on Wall Street embraces it. And they will be the first residents placed on the boxcar headed for the gulag. Michael Moore will get his own boxcar. Unfortunate for them all, useful idiots never get invited to the victory celebration.

It is a revolting revolution that leaves us with the “Washington Party” the wealthy who own the party – yes the evil wealthy – and a remainder that does whatever it needs to each day to put meals on the table. The occupy idiots endorsed by the American Nazi party, Communist Party USA, and other assorted socialists and Marxists, as is establishment Washington, are bought and paid for by George Soros and company. When is the last time you heard a Washington politician questioning the antics of Nazi collaborator Soros?

This promised fundamental transformation takes us from being the most prosperous and freest nation in recorded human history to third world dictatorship status – in the blink of an eye. It is a place where a person must choose to remain free or submit to an authoritarian, oppressive and potentially murderous regime.

We should pray we never have to make that choice, but while we are doing that we must ensure that we are prepared to defend those things we most cherish. The things that made our country great and that have been slowly dismantled over the years. Those are a reliance on God, a dedication to the family unit and the willingness and desire to defend our country and shore up these solid foundational blocks.

We need to be led back to what was once the greatest place on earth. We need to be certain that we do not fall into the trap of following a leader whose words do not exactly meld with their past. We need to be wary of false prophets – those who promise much, but in the end are more devious than the leaders replaced. Proven false promises of change and hope might bring some change, but certainly they can destroy hope if that hope is misplaced.

We need a solid leader. We are courted by many who profess to be so these days. Some of them are establishment chameleon politicians firmly entrenched in the American ruling class aristocracy. They are the go along to get along reach across the aisle maverick country club class of Republicans – not conservatives. As before, we are told that we have to choose one of these otherwise we cannot win. You see, it is winning that is important. The problem is that “we” word. If one of these is elected, who wins? The establishment wins and there is not a dime’s worth of difference between the Democratic establishment and the Republican establishment – both want to control our lives. There is no representative conservative party in America. There are only the establishment parties. One co-opted by the communists and the other by the country club crowd.

So, where do we turn? At my Church, we gather in prayer for our country. That is a good first step.

We were courted by one with potential who many felt was of common conservative stock. Sarah Palin, however, left us at the altar. One hint as to why might be when establishment spokesman Chuck Krauthammer who, on the day she bowed out, declared that she was out because she most definitely would have lost. Let me explain that one if I may. It was Tea Party Conservatives who gave establishment Republicans a landslide victory in the 2010 Congressional races – whether they or Chuck like it or not. It was establishment Republicans refusal to support the peoples’ choices for some Senate races that ensured establishment Democrats continued control of the Senate. Establishment is establishment. R or D matters not. The establishment ruling class would rather lose an election than have a person in the Congress or Whitehouse who they cannot manipulate. Especially those lacking country club pedigrees.

Herman Cain is doing a great service for this country, although I do not think he will pick up any Republican establishment support for it. What he is doing is showing the world that racism is a commodity of liberalism – no matter the color of the liberal. Neither Perry, Bachmann, Gingrich, Santorum, nor Paul will get establishment support either.

Face it conservatives. The fix is in. It is Romney’s turn and he will lose the general election. And America will be over. Unless, there is a true patriot red, white and blue revolution.

Soros: “I’m having a very good crisis.”

Déjà Moo

I have seen this bull crap before. You have too if you were alive and conscious during the 1960’s. Most of the brainwashed children of the privileged, who are out to destroy capitalism and are led by the likes of avowed communist and 911 truther Van Jones, have not seen this before. Ignorant, slothful, educated in communist re-education camps called universities and woefully unprepared for the society they believe they want. These useful idiots equipped with I-pads and I-phones await their tweeted orders while professing to hate the system that gave them I-phones and the Internet.

It was hardly more than a year since I wrote about this. Here too. It was déjà moo then too.

The hippie mantra, besides hell no, we won’t go and burning their draft cards, was to never trust “the establishment.” Besides their selective service cards, they also burned our flag. Conversely, they admired the Communist North Vietnam flag. They took over college campuses and held peaceful little demonstrations like the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago. In 1969, they gave us their crowning achievement, Woodstock. They admired Karl Marx, Che Guevara and Ho Chi Minh. – The Establishment, September 2010

The riots [Democrat convention, Chicago 1968] were incited by the Youth International Party, Yippies for short. They were one of the groups involved that grew out of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) who were also active in the riots. Members of the Black Panthers and a group called the National Organization to End the Vietnam War were involved too. If you are not familiar with this time and events, do yourself a favor and type Democratic Convention 1968 or Chicago 8 into your favorite Internet search engine [just be cautious of the version you read as you could be reading a Nancy Pelosi take on the events]. Another offshoot of SDS that you must have heard of by now is the Weather Underground and its most famous and unrepentant Pentagon bomber and Presidential associate, Bill Ayers. – America is Ours, April 2010

Some of the accounts you read of the time tell you that these “youths” gathered in Chicago (so like the wonderful Arab Spring and “young, spontaneous, focused“ youths occupying Wall Street) just wanted to end the Vietnam War and change our oppressive government for the better. Just understand that 98 percent of them were the drugged up hippie generation. I am of this time and I was living in Chicago and I was not an innocent observer of the hippie culture. The masses may have adorned themselves with peace symbols, love beads and stop the war buttons, but that was the depth of their commitment to any cause. They merely followed the hippie crowds to any gathering of flower children so that they could partake of the sex, drugs and rock and roll all of which were plentiful. The Chicago convention mob was 2 percent “community organizers” – Yippies, SDS, NOEVW, Black Panthers and 98 percent hippie useful idiots. It is just like the occupy Wall Street mob – or as Nancy described them for us “young, it’s spontaneous, and it’s focused.” That brain was in line for the Presidency. Oh my.

These young, spontaneous and focused sheep will become dangerous as they are supported by the puppet masters of our current government – George Soros (who makes money hand over fist from the anarchy he creates around the world and communist led unions). The longer the police, who fear the Department of Justice more than the rioters, sit back the mobs will continue to grow and become destructive and violent. I believe this is the hope – create such anarchy that the people will beg the government to step in and save them.

Arab Spring? Funny, but I am not laughing because there are dangerous similarities. The Arab spring served to “take countries back” from secularist hardliners only to hand them over to Islamic hardliners. In America, the communists are already in charge and are working feverishly to solidify control and destroy the world’s last standing free country. They need chaos and anarchy so that they can swoop in and save us from ourselves. In 1968 Chicago, the organizers were charged and tried for inciting riots. Our government is now complicit in inciting riots. Who is there to prosecute them – other than you and me?

God, Family, Country. Keep a “firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence” and prepare to protect your family from the hard times ahead. Do those two and the Country will stand strong.

I believe that this is just the precursor of worse things to come. By the summer 2012 political conventions, the 1968 Democratic convention riots in Chicago in comparison may look like a Church picnic.

I hope that I will not be sitting here typing déjà moo all over again.

Is America Soft?

According to the President, we are. I agree.

America was once unapologetically Christian. A nation underpinned by Christian values. At the beginning of our country, and from the pulpit our pastors inspired revolution. Today, they fear the wrath of government and the Internal Revenue Service more than they fear the wrath of God should they utter a single phrase in opposition to the direction our government tries to steer us. So much for if we stand with You, no one can stand against us.

Most Americans still claim to be Christian, but unfortunately it is a claim not supported by collective behavior. Being Christian is not the soft life. It is a God dependent and self-reliant life. It is guided by commandments that often are not even considered in the realm of possibilities for guiding modern American life. Today they are practically forbidden from public display and modern trends would see the Holy Bible banned as hate speech.

Rules place boundaries on the behavior of a nation and the citizenry. Life with rules is a disciplined life. No rules, no boundaries, discipline undefined.

The soft life has no discipline in which to adhere. It is a life unbounded by persnickety ancient rules. In the soft life, there are no moral boundaries. Sexual immorality is accepted, often glorified. In the soft unbounded life, it is acceptable to kill the innocent unborn yet practically impossible to execute a brutal convicted murderer. When the boundaries are removed, the desired ends always justify the means.

Once up on a time in America, communism was viewed and accepted as evil and destructive. We had no problem placing the collective finger in the chest of communism and affirming that it is not welcomed here. We recognized the threat to the Republic and stood firm against it. We taught our children the difference between a free life in a free democratic republic and life in communist Red China.

Today, no so much. Communism today is discounted as loony liberalism or simply as progressivism. Even strong public figures hesitate to call a communist what he is. China is held as the example and communist dictators for life are openly admired.

We were once a society that prided itself in individualism. We worked and were proud to make our contribution toward building and preserving the great and abundant nation with which God blessed us.

Today, thanks to a freedom destroying progressive tax system, fifty percent of us take, but contribute nothing for the privilege. Those who work the hardest and produce the most wealth for the nation and its people are vilified as evil and disparaged for not paying their fair share. Fair share? From each according to his ability is pure communism, but the soft generation in charge never learned that.

We are changing into an owed society – changing from a nation of self-reliant contributors into a nation of government dependent takers. Government dependent is another freedom stealing tenet of communism. Being cared for, rather than caring for one’s self is certainly the softer life –for as long as it may last.

We were once proud and unapologetically Americans. We were so because we were taught the true history of our country and we believed that the United States of America is an exceptional nation and that we are blessed to be her citizens.

In the softer life, we act ashamed and apologetic for being Americans. Self-inflicted and self-destructed liberal guilt is killing America. We have changed into a nation that places emphasis on mythical hyphenated identities. Our hyphens indicate that we bear allegiance to a country to which we have likely never set foot and to a culture in which we could not survive if we attempted to truly immerse ourselves in it and recognize it for what it is.

Now, we attempt to assuage or self-inflicted guilt through submission and apology. We are led into a fantasy land where those who hate our very existence will suddenly and miraculously love us as free people in a free nation if we only prostrate ourselves before them and beg acceptance.

Yes sir Mr. President, we have grown soft. We are also a gullible people and like any other, we tend to go where we are led. It is when we get to the edge of our destination and peer over into the bottomless darkness that we start to have serious reservations.

The hard life is God dependent, self-reliant, de-hyphenated and unapologetically American. May we be blessed with leaders who can take us back home.
