Did anyone think I was going to talk about Egypt, the radicalism in Islam or some crud in general? No…This is going to be relatively simple. The state of the world has nothing to do with political movements or individual acts of violence or moral turpitude. It has more to do with the state of the hearts of man. In general, mankind has embraced a mentality that we are entitled to be “taken care of”. Pardon me…I thought are all supposed to work and pull our own weight for the simple fact that if we let anyone else “take care of us” like our government “nanny” proposes, then the servant becomes the master over us. I covet no man’s fortune that he made or any woman hers. I can take care of myself and don’t expect to be taken care of. I am part Native American and Irish/German and I do not believe even for one minute that because my ancestors suffered, that I should receive someone else’s hard-earned dime. That is a shameful mentality that spits on the graves of those who did suffer since this generation does not even begin to comprehend their suffering. It wasn’t their blood that was shed by the crack of a whip or the bullet of a gun. It was not them who got raped and beaten for wanting to learn to read. It was not them who had to endure having their families ripped apart because they were sold to the highest bidder either. My Native ancestors suffered long before any other continent sent their people over here.
If you want to come down to the brass tacks of this matter, then it is only the female that should get any compensation from the world…Why not? They’ve been screwed over since time began, right? However given that I am part Native American, Irish/German and Pennsylvania Dutch (according to my grandmother), NOBODY should be getting reparations unless I get a five way cut–because of the fact that I am female! However, let’s get off of the subject of ME. This isn’t about me…
Remember this song? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ni_c0IMP-c “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”…It’s true.
We are seeing it–along with various groups who think they are the ones that should lead the way. We have the Communists, who are totally out of touch with reality. We have radical religious groups saying that they will come from their OWN countries and fly their own flag on the White House…Then we have those groups who say they will take land from this nation without firing a shot. None of these groups have vision. They cannot make decisions that are best for all when they are only centered on themselves and trying to sell America a “package” that they say is a privilege when in fact it is outright oppression. What vision they do have is an unrealistic one, based on some idea that they think Americans will just lay down and allow itself to be raped again and again.
Things will change in 2012. There is a group in control now that believes it is entitled to dictate what is best for every man, woman and child in this country. They have, in essence started to behave more like monarchs and less like the public servants they were elected to be. The people have now seen this and are disenchanted with them. These “servants”–and that is what they are–they work for the PEOPLE and will find that out soon enough. We as a nation know that they are no “Camelot” and that the last good vestige of hope died with Bobby Kennedy in 1968.
They also know that many are taking direction and money from one foreigner–by the last name of Soros. He is the puppet master. It is time to let these servants know that in 2012, their puppet master will be put on a leash and brought down a few notches into reality. There are a few key players that should be charged with treason and sedition–not all of whom I will name here, but Soros is one, Chouderay is another. Both of these men are dangerous to mankind as we know it to be. They both seek to control the people and deny them the basic rights that our ancestors fought and died for.
Both of those men are of the thought train that they know what is best for the world, and it is the propagators of all of this New World Order crap that are allowing both to run amok and spread anger and discontent. They know they can’t accomplish all they want on this continent, so now they are focusing on their homelands–and they want to destroy Israel.
Let them try it. Israel has more than enough weapons to take care of that issue, I’m sure.
Pardon me, but I think that I know what is best for me. I will not go back to being chattel, and I certainly will never submit to orders to wear certain attire in this country. I will not give up my right to vote and be with whomever I please to satisfy the demands of a maddened zealot either. I want nothing from that entity and that entity has no right to want anything of me or my people–my America. It is time to wake up America. It is time to fire these people who want to put you and your children on a collar with a leash. It is time to take back our country, take back our educational system and take back our lives.
Let me be clear on the education issue. Foreign Languages and classes on any religions should be ELECTIVES–not mandatory subjects. Teachers should be teaching students in the fields that they have their specialties in. If they teach English Literature, they should only be teaching that area–not math, science and such. They should not have to write separate lesson plans for students that they are not properly trained to deal with either. If a teacher is only certified to teach English and Social Studies and has no special education training, they should NOT be teaching special ed. students in their classrooms. This system has become deplorable because there are instances where a teacher is having to write 5 sets of lesson plans per class period. Why? Because they have to work with all five special needs groups in a regular classroom. Why? Entitlement…IDEA has been twisted so now that any student–even those who are higher level are now in a classroom with children who are often disruptive and lower level. I am not talking about learning disabled (LD)–I”m referring to emotionally disturbed (ED).
On a typical day 4 groups of students will be working on worksheets or other activities while the home room teacher has to take a small group of special needs students and work with them as a group in the back of the classroom. How is that not segregating? It has to be done anyway to give each group time, but these teachers should not have to pull a Penn and Teller stunt to be able to teach an entire classroom. CEO’s and administrators who have little experience with the classroom environment are looking for ways to trim the budgets and cut costs so they unfairly burden less qualified teachers to be all things to all groups.
IDEA has to be revamped. There is no way around this. What started off as a novel idea does not work anymore. It originated from “entitlement” but there is no way that a single teacher nowadays can be a messianic figure to a group of students. Classes need to be smaller and manageable so that the students can get a real education. IF this means that the least restrictive environment is a separate classroom for core subjects, with these students getting their socialization during lunch, PE, choir, etc…Then so be it. There is no reason to put a physically disabled student in a separate classroom if he or she is able to do the work. However, that teacher should not be expected to handle J-Tubes and Body fluids from diapers and such. That is what either nurse’s aides or certified personnel are for. This budget cutting makes it impossible to hire more teachers and qualified aides, and this is what is causing the problems in education.
In a classroom environment within corrections, there is no distinction. If an ED person acts up, they are kicked out of the class. IF these offenders do not want to go to class and keep refusing–let them drop out but make them serve their entire sentence for refusing to complete their education. Make it an automatic disqualifier for parole if they refuse GED classes and/or miss a test with no legitimate reason. THEN they will start taking it seriously.
Now back to public schools. It is time to hold the administrators and boards to a higher standard. Parents need to demand that the DOE and the NEA be disbanded because they DID create the monster that our tax dollars is now feeding. They are no longer working to properly educate children, but are working to create division in the home and in the community. Tax dollars are gobbled up by these two entities. If they demand justification for my reasoning, look at the literacy scores in the US for the past 30 years. They have gone down steadily since the NEA was allowed to lobby for crap that this country did not need or want put into place. Look at the countless debates that the textbooks they endorse causes. Look at the agendas that districts are trying to shove down parents’ throats because of all these entities which feel that they are “entitled” to tell you what is best for your own children. Is THIS what you really want?
As far as the recipients of welfare and unemployment, it is fine that you get that as long as you really need it, but to me if you aren’t trying to get a job, they should immediately cut you off when they check that mainframe computer and find that you really didn’t apply to x number of potential employers than you actually claimed. In fact, you should be prosecuted for fraud if you did that, sorry. As for welfare recipients, getting benefits should be tied to a debit card that will NOT allow the purchases of alcohol or tobacco. Now it is true that the food stamp purchases single out non food items, but the welfare funds do not. It is time to remedy this. IF they cannot work, they shouldn’t be buying alcohol and tobacco with THOSE funds when they have children living at home . I saw it almost every day when I worked in a retail business. Given today’s prices, I say it is abuse of my dime to allow it.
In short, you are entitled to determine how the “public servants” spend and allocate your dime. Why not take advantage of that and vote them out before they make things any worse? It is time to draw a line in the sand and fight for what is best for this nation to stay alive–not cave in to what some people think that they are “entitled” to regardless of where they are in this country! This nation has been bullied long enough by the politicians that have done nothing but proven how self-serving they are and have left border states to fend for themselves as much as they can. That is something I will address later on.

Before I go further into this, let me inform you that I am a Christian. I will also inform you that I am an ANGRY Christian. I will not apologize for that because all women right now face a threat to their own autonomy greater than has ever been faced since our Suffragette ancestors got us the right to vote. Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton are turning over in their graves, I’m sure.
I have read some rather ridiculous stuff in the news lately, but this one really got me upset. WHY would anyone consider Sharia Law when it comes to sentencing for crimes? I am referring to the article in this link I will post here:
This man, who incidentally took an oath to be an AMERICAN citizen is now trying to claim that the cold-blooded murder of his 21-year-old daughter is an “honor killing”. Scrap the religious argument here for a minute. This guy SHOULD be considered an infidel for even TAKING an oath of citizenship–especially since our constitution is founded on the principles of Christianity. Does that mean that the United States is a “Christian Nation”. No. However, Christianity involves free will–Islam does not. THIS is what needs to be made clear. Anyway, no Islamic nation should excuse this “oversight” on his part when he took an oath of citizenship either. If he were a true Muslim, he wouldn’t have taken the oath to defend our constitution. THAT is my opinion on that issue. That being said, as far as I am concerned, he is only seeking to escape the death penalty. That MIGHT fly in Iraq, where he is from, but he is in OUR country and is now being tried under OUR laws. I am not in support of the death penalty, but I am also not in support of losing my right to voice that opinion either, and I don’t think the females who do support the death penalty want to lose their autonomy either. That is the danger if judges start ruling in favor of such a system for ANYONE. Mark my words, Sharia Law being used in this country will erode the rights of women and that cannot be allowed!
If he says his daughter was “too Americanized”, then what the heck did he expect to happen when he became an American himself? Hello! Is anyone out there listening to this question? When in ROME, as the cliché goes, you do as the Romans do. WHEN in America, you do as WE do–or don’t become a citizen. Simple? It should be…
Evidently the girl’s parents were not happy when she divorced a cousin she was forced to marry. HELLO AGAIN! We are in AMERICA. Divorce is LEGAL. Sharia Law is not applicable in this country! Are any judges reading this? She was also an “American”. WHO is defending her rights as a victim? Read the text messages she sent to her friend. Her father was a threat to her right to live the American dream. She was a threat to his macho “I am a god” authority, which is protected under the culture from which he CAME, but NOT here. OR is it?
I want everyone to think about some of the history of the United States for a few moments. HOW LONG have women had the right to vote, divorce, etc…? Not that long, right? Well, if you want to refresh your memory, check the following link:
It also violates the principal of separation of church and state to allow Sharia Law to be implemented in to our penal codes in this country. It relegates women to being chattel, a practice which too many American women went through hell to put a stop to in the past two centuries. All of these “laws” were written for the benefit of men being in control of their spouses and daughters as if they were to be used merely to breed and keep them happy. If anyone thinks that this law will only be applied toward the members of the Muslim faith in this country, they had better think again. It will ultimately extend to all when judges of this faith get appointed to the judge’s benches around the nation. I ask the American people this. Do they really think if Muslim Extremists were to end up running our country that Hollywood celebrities who embrace homosexuality and women’s rights would be allowed to live under their rule? I don’t think so. If men will kill their own daughters for being too “American”, what makes these people think that they will stop with their own offspring? Please don’t come back and tell me the ones doing these acts are “extremists”. They aren’t when they first come here for citizenship. They come in suits, ties and are well dressed, and some of the women who are in this will also be well dressed for show and tell, to get women to think “Oh, this isn’t as bad as they say.” I guess that when this country is finally subjected to the forced marriages and (in extreme cases) the practice of Female Genital Mutilation, that people will finally wake up and see that this is more than a real threat. Don’t kid yourselves. They are wolves in sheep’s clothing. These are educated oppressors sent to accomplish one goal–to take the world for Allah by whatever means necessary even though their Quran CLEARLY states for them to not make war with anyone who doesn’t make war with them first. I know what the Quran says, because I’ve read it. If they cannot do it by gradually implementing Sharia Law, one can rest assured that they will take a lesson from Lenin and Stalin and start a war in due time.
If nothing else, women should be standing shoulder to shoulder, and toe to toe with the gay community in opposition to this implementation because it puts ALL of us at risk–and it doesn’t matter if one is gay, straight, celibate, or whatever. IF you are not a Muslim, you are an infidel. Below is an absolute WORST case scenario:
Their goal will be to convert you if you are not a homosexual and to kill you if you are one. If you don’t believe that, then do your homework. Look at how Sharia Law handles such matters. As for heterosexuals, they will kill you (most likely) regardless–especially when they realize that you would rather die on your feet than to beg on your knees. In other words, in their eyes, if you do not submit to their so-called divine authority given by Allah, you will die anyway. I realize this is a worst case scenario, but one must realize that this is the law that extremists are trying to enforce in other countries as we speak!
I know many Christians do not want to hear the above statement, but it is my opinion. God loves homosexuals, and it is not my job to judge or condemn them, but I do feel that they will not turn to God if the god the church continues to show them offers no hope of redemption, but of condemnation. I have seen churches with people in them who do not show an example of Christ’s love, but of hatred. This is NOT godly behavior and he will not honor it. Judgment does begin with the house of God if the bible be true, and let’s just assume it is…That means the church gets theirs before the non-believers they failed to lead to the Lord are to be judged. I also feel that the bible says “Judge not lest ye be judged” for a reason. Think about it. Now back to my point about Sharia Law:
The people who are trying to accomplish this feat come from places that also sell their women to the highest bidder. Even if that bidder is a sex trafficker, they will sell their women in to fake marriages at young ages in order to force them into slavery. This is especially true in Iraq. Then if the women get away, they kill or imprison them for bringing shame to their families. If you don’t believe that, check it out. There are links. Why is government giving any aid to countries with such practices? I am of the opinion that by doing so, this government is complicit in the business of oppressing women worldwide. If it were up to me, all aid would be stopped where forced marriages and/or the selling of children and/or the practice FGM are allowed. I would then take that money that would have gone to those nations and put it toward paying off the deficit.
For the lack of action I see from the National Organization for Women, I would have NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM simply because I see nothing in the way of pursuing the rights of women as of late. Women must unite among themselves. Nobody is going to listen unless women become one united force–and believe me there are women of all faiths in this country that if they united under the cause of keeping women free in this country, the government would have no choice but to listen.
However, if Sharia law were instituted, you can rest assured that the subversive cultures within this country would try to revoke the right to vote for women–and that is when the real problems will begin. They will blame the female rape victims in court again for being raped, molested, etc…, rather than face the fact that each person must be held accountable for their own actions.
When we have video on Youtube of women fighting each other on a bus in front of their own children, it is used by the people of other countries to show how “out of control” we are as a nation because of our “freedoms”. They don’t address the fact that the women on the video are breaking the law because that would imply that if caught they would be properly punished. They are not mentioning that fact because that feeds into their propaganda machine about how western civilization and capitalism are evil.
The fact of the matter is, the way this country is allowed to conduct itself–glorifying socially unacceptable behavior, is why this country has become a laughing-stock. Discipline at all levels of society must be restored–starting with the home, then the school, then the counties, states and then our country as a whole. By not educating our children properly, we are feeding a beast that has run dangerously out of control. When will the people of America reunite and take back the schools and their cities from people who will sell the soul and it’s own females for the sake of conforming to a One World Order–which Islam right now is probably going to be running? Stop trade with nations who allow women’s rights to be trampled in such a manner–which would shut out the Middle East for the most part, and let them fend for their own. They do not deserve the aid of free nations. Oh my gosh! We would have to depend on our own oil and/or open up trade with South America–which would be a good thing.
Not all people of the Muslim faith allow for such practices on their women. These people should unite behind us and not allow these barbaric, inhumane creatures that dare to call themselves men exert control over anyone else. The mullahs and imams know that an uneducated population is a controllable one. Why do you think some of these men sell girls as young as two off? They know if women were educated, and if they were free, they would most likely NOT marry anyone chosen for them. They also know that the women outnumber them by far. I will let the reader think about that one. Here is the link referring to the cases in New York and in Arizona as well:
Regardless of what one’s faith is, or the choice to be of no faith, it doesn’t matter. Neither does your sexual preference. This threatens us all and we must never let ourselves be divided on an issue as vital as this. Our lives and the lives of our children and grandchildren depend upon that. Can we not unite for once to win this ONE cause? Division has been a big problem when it comes to our own rights. We can no longer afford to be divided.
The late president Abraham Lincoln knew the dangers a divided America would be. Our leaders need to be brought into the light of this fact again. We cannot have two Americas–one system of law for one group and another for another group. Ignorance of our law is no excuse to commit a crime. Now we face a fight to wipe out another type of slavery–one that thrives on ignorance and fear. It also thrives on the subjugation of all others to its own benefit. If you do not understand what I am talking about, I suggest you take a good hard look at what is going on in Europe–especially since the UK has already tried being “sensitive” to this. I am of the opinion that a worldwide cauldron is brewing and we must NOT allow ourselves to be thrown into it.

As with any mass rioting in the world, there is always the potential to start finger-pointing, making angry outbursts at others, and for LACK of a better way to put it, lowering ourselves to a level that none of our ancestors would be proud of. The danger lies in this world in much the same fashion that it does in any prison system.
Are you wondering what I mean? I’ll share it with you. A gang starts fighting in the chow hall. It gets contained after being hit with CS gas and such…Just as that mess gets cleaned up, another building kicks off when the news gets there from one of the other offenders who happens to be watching things unfold from the exit door. THEN the team has to go clean up another mess–and it continues. It spreads from building to building. Before long, the news is statewide. THEN other units start kicking off, putting countless non-participating offenders and a whole lot of officers in mortal danger because each gang is struggling to gain control.
Do you not think for one minute that given the messes in Egypt and Tunisia right now that there is an extremist group in the wings waiting to “step in” to “solve the problem”? If not, you had better think again. If they gain the upper hand, what makes you think the rest of them in other countries won’t try to kick off at some point?
There is only one response that can be done. Contain the chaos. Then deport non-citizen participants and jail the others who cause the violence and throw the key away. Changing regimes is one thing. Trying to establish a stranglehold to prevent a natural progression into a new government is another. We saw that happened in Iran in the 70’s.
I said after the Nicole Simpson/Ron Goldman murders that the catch phrase for children hundreds of years later would be “O.J. did it!” Damn…I was wrong…It is going to be “Assange did it!” He will be vilified if WW3 breaks out and somehow, it will all get pointed back to him, true or not. Personally, he should be tried by various countries for sedition and/or treason.
The public has a “right to know” some information–unless it might cause the lives of our service members to be put at risk, or our freedoms that we do have to be put into jeopardy. I don’t see that (for example) knowing that the troops cornered Osama Bin Laden in a bunker outside of a mountain range in Northern Afghanistan, and that they are about to commence bombings of that bunker, is going to matter to me one way or the other until after the fact. There should be a media blackout until it is done. I am sick of journalists acting like little demigods telling where the troops are and telling THEIR version of the truth to promote their own personal agendas. Enough is enough! Either report responsibly and quit trying to convert America to your “my view is right and you need to agree” attitude, or get into the business of being televangelists, because that is what such reporters are well suited for–and are looked at in the same light by many in the nation.
As for the people, we need to stay calm and take these journalists with a grain of salt. There is still some good reporting out there, but not much. Much of it is what I call “propagandizing” of the news. BOTH the far right and far left do this. I am not concerned with what is going on in Egypt per se, unless extremist groups try to take it over, which I don’t think will happen. Egypt’s army is known for quashing all rebellion just like the Turks do. Neither army will put up with extremism. The Coptic Christians in Egypt always remain neutral, so if these extremist thugs try to convert them, they will be in for a rude shock. They will defend themselves or die trying. They will not convert.
When enough of the extremists upset the world balance in the way of trade, one of two things will happen. Russia will step in and shut them up, and the Turks will assist, OR China will do it for them and save them the trouble. Do not think for one minute that any of those nations will stand by and let these gangs of extremists gain a foothold when their own countries could come under threat. Germany is already contemplating deportations because of what is going on in their own country, and I am sure other countries in Europe may follow suit. Why? It is simple, the populous is getting sick of being told that they have to be “sensitive” to other peoples’ cultures on their own blood bought, freedom-loving soil. The forefathers in our countries did not fight and die so that we would have to accommodate every foreign national that chooses to emigrate to this country. IF they want to be a part of the culture they are now living in, and be accepted, they shouldn’t be trying to change the new country into another version of the country they left behind.
I don’t care what country anyone who lives here comes from–they came to America. If they cannot embrace our culture, they should leave. It’s that simple.
While the U.S. needs to keep an eye on this stuff, it is best to NOT get obsessed with it. What extremists do not realize is that we DO remain calm until WE get messed with directly. Regarding Obama’s speech in June 2009, I have only this to say…This nation has no business telling others how to conduct THEIR affairs until we straighten out our own problems within our own borders.
For one, we need to stop extremism here. It should NOT be permitted. Any foreign national who is trying to practice law here, and attempting to insert Sharia Law into our penal codes (state or federal) through court cases should be deported immediately. Any foreign national teaching that this land is not American’s land but theirs (or their God’s)–same thing. Deport their asses! They don’t belong in America. Anyone who is found guilty of murder in process of honor killing should have mitigating circumstances added because of the fact that they KILLED FEMALES due to their own hatred for them as well as their basic human rights. Misogyny is a form of hate and if they want to push that Sharia Law crap, then try them for hate crimes against women–period. END OF DISCUSSION. Not all Muslims espouse Sharia Law. Many left their countries to get away from extremism. They are in as much danger as an infidel, and it is important to keep that in mind before joining in the “bash all Muslims” bandwagon. If America is going to allow one religion to dominate the textbooks, they should ALL be given equal time. IF not, then none should be mentioned.
I cannot speak for all women, and neither can NOW since they don’t do much for women’s rights on these issues anyway, but I can say this. I will not give up my autonomy or my right to vote–let alone my right to keep my body in tact and marry who I damned well please. My ancestors fought too long and hard for me to have those rights. The Suffragettes will not have died and fought for us in vain so long as we as women hold onto those rights and FIGHT to defend them.
Our leaders must not think much of women either to even let anyone entertain the thought of allowing this into any American document. To allow it is treason and violates the Constitution. While we need to remain calm as a nation, it is time for the women of America to wake up. We must make our voices heard, or face extinction if stuff does hit the proverbial fan in this country. We must be willing to stand up not just for our rights but for those of our daughters and granddaughters, nieces, etc…
The time to stand up is NOT when we see fighting in our streets and chaos everywhere else. The time to put a stop to this crap is NOW. We must stand toe to toe and shoulder to shoulder, regardless of what party we are in. We must stand straight with gay, black with white, Asian with Latino, etc…ALL MUST UNITE and say NO to this crap! If this is how some people want to live, let THEM relocate. The rest of this nation shouldn’t be expected to accommodate those who hate our culture and our way of life. I will vote for nobody–Republican or Democrat who thinks this is alright or doesn’t address this either. To me, it is the women of this country who are in the greatest danger should a worst case scenario occur.
Stop giving money to nations who carry out such misogynistic behavior toward women. If they don’t let their women marry whom they choose–cut their funding. If they sell young children into any kind of slavery and legally allow it, CUT THEIR FUNDING. If they practice FGM–CUT THEIR FUNDING, if they don’t espouse educating boys and girls equally, same deal. WE should not continue to feed a beast that will only turn around and bite us afterward. Not only that, the money that is saved would be better suited going to cover our deficit and not earmarked for unnecessary crap.
It is also time to remove presidential privilege of issuing executive orders and put it back in the hands of congress where it belongs. The Wilsonian pattern must be abolished and the original powers of government restored to protect the governed from the unjust powers their rulers now seek. Executive order privilege gives the president way too much power over the lives of our citizens–and essentially makes him a “new monarch”. Remember the ‘czars”? I suggest that people do not forget THAT point. It is definitely NOT what our founding fathers intended to happen and it sets a dangerous precedent for those who value freedom.
While for now we must remain calm, one can rest assured that women in this country are silently seething at the thought of someone else telling them how they should “live their life” regardless of the reason for it. It is up to nobody to dictate to women who to marry, how to pray, how many children to have (if any) and the list goes on. One can also rest assured that if our freedom in this country is threatened, we will stand against anyone trying to destroy our autonomy. Our Suffragette ancestors fought too long and too hard to prevent the subjugation of women in society. Their memory must never, ever be forgotten.
