Innocence Stripped Away...Liberals call it PROGRESS!!

(This Blog originally appeared on my MySpace blog in 2007.)

As I sit at my sister's apartment, sipping instant mix hot chocolate, I wonder just how sad our society has already gotten, and just how far it will go.

I remember a time when hot chocolate was a thrill. When I had no idea what sex was and how babies were really made. I was able to enjoy life and not worry about the world crumbling into oblivion, literally and figuratively.

I used to be innocent. You could call it ignorance, but as a kid, even as recently as the late 80's, ignorance was bliss.

But today, people are constantly pushing back the age of innocence and of blissful ignorance. Most of these people are staunch liberals, and vote democrat...let's see what the liberals are doing now.

In case you haven't heard, law-makers in Maine are pushing for new programs (and more wasted tax dollars) to provide contraceptives for 11 year olds.

Yes, 11.

Just over a decade in age.

These kids are going to be stripped of any chance of that ignorant bliss I enjoyed as a kid. These children will be given the keys to a dangerous vehicle---sex.

Sex is not a toy...its not a meaningless act of fun and excitement. Whether you will admit it or not, there are serious psychological and emotional consequenses when engaging in sex. You can ignore it all you want, but there are chemical, mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual changes that occur within yourself everytime you participate in sex. Cannot be helped. It was DESIGNED that way.

These side effects and changes that occur when sex happens are complex. So complex that many adults have trouble understanding and dealing with them. Yet, we continue to push children closer and closer to sex at younger and younger ages.

Within the next ten years, I guarentee that there will be a 7th grader who misses school due to maternity leave. Think I am kidding???

Why in the world are we destroying the innocence of our kids? Why are we allowing it to happen sooner and sooner?

Its bad enough the smut and garbage we put up with on TV and in what they call music. Movies are garbage. There is very little decent, kid-friendly product left in the world. So why not let 11 year-olds have the safe-haven of school?

Why are we going to allow the Big-Brother government come in, rape our children of innocence, and give them condoms and other sex-related information and contraceptives??

We are becoming so socialist, and it scares me that more people do not realize it. We are slowly being led into a society controlled by a larger-than-life government that will tell us every single detail of our lives.

Read the novel 1984. Big Brother IS watching us. Big Brother is people like, George Soros, Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, John Kerry, and most of the rest of the left.

Please, stop the raping of the innocence of our children. Stop this measure, and others like it. Let the kids have some happiness and blissful ignorance before we open the doors to worlds they could not possibly comprehend.

(Here is a response to this blog I recieved on my MySpace blog page.)

"You know, when I was in middle school (1989-1992), we had an 8th grader who was pregnant with her SECOND child. A couple of years ago at the school where I work, we had an 8th grader pregnant by a 7th grader. My point? Kids are being "adults" in today's society no matter if we like it or not. This is NOT the fault of the democratic party, but rather the parents who have decided not to be parents. When you have middle schoolers with their parents permitting their boyfriends/girlfriends moving into their homes, what do you expect. And, let's not forget society in general. Sex is EVERYWHERE... in magazine ads, on TV, even widely mentioned in news stories. How do you expect kids, who already are clueless to what's happening to their changing bodies (since parents leave that part out of discussions and Republicans don't want teachers to be the ones to explain it to children) to know anything but to go out and "have a good time" in whatever way they see fit. It's the same thing with drugs. I would've never believed how many middle school and high school students (even elementary for that matter) are doing drugs of various kinds on a daily basis. Since they ARE doing it, should educators and politicians simply discontinue drug awareness also? Wow. Fact is, we live in this society and we can choose to ignore the issues or we can choose to be proactive about them. I'd prefer to keep those 11 year olds children rather than parents. At least that way they'd have a chance at growing past their childish, curious ways and become productive (childless) teenagers... and on into adults."

(Here is my follow-up blog in response to the comments left on my MySpace page.)

I felt the need to write a follow-up to my previous post, based upon some of the responses I recieved. There are several points I need to make to further my previous blog.

My first point is this: the problem with most left-wing-inspired solutions is that they are not solutions. They are band-aids trying to fix broken bones. They are like cough medicine to fix constipation. It just is not going to work and will not fix the real problems.

You can look like you want to help, but if you do not get to the root of a problem and fight to improve the situation, all you are doing is enabling the furtherment of the issue.

This particular issue is public schools providing contraceptives and sex education to children as young as 11. I have a SERIOUS problem with this.

The point is raised that there are kids that young already engaging in sex, so we have to do nothing more than accept it. Go ahead and give them the keys to the car since some of them are already driving.

Why spend all of these tax dollars to further encourage younger and younger children to engage in sex? If you are making the contraceptives available, you are encouraging it. Plain and simple.
I don't know all the answers. No one does. But the answer is NOT giving 11 year olds condoms.

Why can't we start addressing the REAL problem? The REAL problem is not trying to make sure that 11 year olds are having safe sex. The REAL problem is that kids that young are engaging in ANY kind of sexual activity.

The problem is, no one wants to work at it. No one wants to put any real effort into fixing our society. Everyone wants everything handed to them. No one is willing to get dirty and clean things up. Everyone is afraid of getting sued.

Everyone is looking to the government to save us...

Which is what the elite left want...they want you to look to Washington, DC, for all your answers. They want to be the ones to tell you what questions you should be asking.

When are we going to stand up as people and fight to save our society? Fight to save morals, responsibilty, and decency? Fight to restore some innocence to the lives of our children?

What is it going to take for us to fight back and clean up the mess?

Is there anyone willing to roll up the sleeves and put some REAL effort into addressing the REAL problems in society?

Here is a list of the major problems we could start with:

-Severe lack of matter what you do, we have a government program to bail you out so you never have to learn from your mistakes. You go get pregnant? That's fine. We'll let you kill it with no questions asked. You don't even have to tell your parents/guardians about it! Didn't do anything productive with your life? Why, here's a check for you! You can collect as long as you like.

-EXTREME selfishness...mostly brought on by the baby-boomer generation who had everything handed to them on a silver platter after WWII. No depression to deal real threat to their safety as Americans until 9-11-01...and even then we were spoiled into thinking that there was no more threat to us.

-Unbelievable laziness...we drive 15 minutes in parking lots looking for a space 10 feet closer to the store. we won't get off our couches to vote....we won't spend any real time researching the issues and vetting our political candidates...we use the left-slant of the media as our only guidence for voting...we do not take time to reach out to people in need of guidence and care and training...if we can't cut a check and mail it in, we really are slow to help people in need...we are a sorry, lazy society.

-Television is NOT A BABYSITTER!!!! Obviously, thanks to the likes of Judges like Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the other liberals who have been on the US Supreme Court, we are not going to be able to stop the garbage that is being produced for TV and movies. What we CAN do is start creating and finding better alternatives to the televisions for children. I know parents have to work and cannot be there to keep kids distracted from watching...but we need some effort by the parents and other people to get the kids off the couch and away from the horrible influences of TV, movies, and even video games.

If we could actually get motivated to address those issues, maybe we can get back to a point to where society is worth saving. I cannot imagine society being much worse when God had Noah build the Ark. It scares me to think how poorly we, including me and pretty much everyone in the world today, have done with out lives and with our society.

We are all spoiled. We are all lazy. We all shirk responsibility.

That needs to change...or, God help us...if He isn't already given up on us.

Deerborne, MI Republican Debates

As you might have heard, the fledgling CNBC hosted a Republican debate on the economy. The site chosen for the debate on the economy was Deerborne, Michigan, which is right in the middle of a state in dire straights economically.

In his first debate since officially entering the race, Senator Fred Thompson seemed to be out to get his points out with as little flair as possible. Seemingly, Rudy Guliani and Mitt Romney battled back and forth for the spotlight. In my opinion, these are the best choices for president. Any of the three will offer a more successful administration than anything the democrats could conjure up.

Thompson seemed to try to stay off the radar, wanting to let Mitt and Rudy cancel each other out and allow him to gracefully step in as the front-runner. In any event, I do believe that a ticket that combines any of these three men would be impressive and worth voting for.

As stated throughout the debate, our economy is actually doing well. It is strong and has seen over 20 consecutive quarters of growth. Inflation is low and so is unemployment. This growth is directly attributed to the Bush Tax Cuts.

The problem with the Republicans going into Michigan to brag on the Bush Tax Cuts, low unemployment, and the robust economy is that the exact opposite is occurring within Michigan. And, being the truly fair and balanced news source it is, CNBC must have randomly chosen the spot and had no intention of setting up the Republicans for the potential pitfal.

However, a deeper look at Michigan shows something. It shows the Liberal Plan for America in a scale model. It shows high taxes, endless entitlements, and fund shortages for the government. The joblessness in Michigan is staggering, more than twice the national average. The taxes paid by the middle class is nearly back-breaking. The entire state is on the verge of its own economic crash. Its a state that is run from the Governor on down to the Lansing dog catcher by liberal democrats.

Within the last two weeks, in order to secure for funds for the nearly bankrupt state government, the Governor of Michigan did what any self-respecting Democratic leader would do. An emergency tax hike was called for, once again, because, hey, it hasn't worked before, so maybe it will this time.

Raising taxes to raise funds for the government is the same as the bee trying to get to the hive through a closed window. The answer seems to be to go this way, yet no matter how many times you bang your head into the clear glass, you are not going to get through to the other side. Yet, these democrats keep banging their heads into the glass.

So, I encourage you to look at the real numbers in Michigan. Study the state. This, my friends, would be America under Hillary, Obama, Breck Girl Edwards, or pretty much anyone on the other side.

Then, I encourage everyone reading this, if you are planning on voting democratic, go ahead and write a check for about 10-25% of your income and mail it to the IRS. Go ahead. You'll be doing it in the future anyway. Note that this check, and future taxes, represents the increase of at least 10-25% under a left-wing administration. There really is no law against sending money to the government. So, go ahead and start sending the extra money now.

Then, request that Michael Moore, Alec Baldwin, Susan Sarandon, Al Gore, Leo DiCaprio, Sean Penn, and Danny Glover and the like start cutting checks to the government. They are all for a democrat in office, and all for higher taxes. I say, put your money where your mouth is...literally. Michael Moore was on Bill O'Reilly during the 2004 campaign claiming to be okay with a 60% tax, why doesn't he and his ilk prove it and send the money now anyway?

Back to the point...Michigan's suffering should not be in vain. We need to look at the state as a microchosm of the US under liberal least from an economic stand point.

We all know Liberals would leave us wide open to terrorist attacks. They have done it before. (See World Trade Center Attacks 1993, US Embassy bombings in Africa, and the USS Cole attack. And if you want to look further back, see the hostages that were taken under Mr. Peanut and released immediately after the swearing in of Ronald Reagan. I don't recall the US getting attacked under Reagan either...or George H.W. Bush....hmm, see a pattern?)

So, can it be any clearer which party needs control in 2008? You want our economy taxed into oblivion like Michigan? You want our people killed by terrorists here, at home?

If so, vote Democrat.

Justice Clarence Thomas

What do you know about Justice Clarence Thomas? Are your only images of this man those of the confirmation hearings over a decade and a half ago?

Perhaps your impressions of Justice Thomas are inspired only by the slanted media presentation of this man. Perhaps you only know what the likes of staunch liberal newspeople like Dan Rather, Katie Couric, Chris Matthews, or the entire editorial staff of the New York Times WANTS you to think.

I encourage you to either buy or, if you feel you do not want to spend money on it, borrow from your local library "My Grandfather's Son." It is Justice Thomas's autobiography. It is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, in his own words.

Justice Thomas did not come from a well-to-do, or even a middle-class family. He came from the humblest of roots. He didn't need the government to tell him he was being held back because of his color. He overcame it all, despite the racism and the hatred people of color dealt with in his formitive years. He overcame people like democratic leaders senator Al Gore, Sr., who voted time and time again to stop the Civil Rights Acts. He overcame the hatred of the Klan, which included future senator Robert Byrd.

Yet, you do not know this. You only know him as an "Uncle Tom," as he has been called. You only know him for "the scandal that wasn't" in his confirmation hearings.

Read the book, or just catch him in one of his interviews of late. See just how intelligent, well spoken, and truly decent and humble this man is.

We should be proud to have this man on the Supreme Court. He knows why he is there. He understands what his job is. He is not a legislator. He is merely there to interpret current law as it applies to the cases he sees.

Justice Clarence Thomas is a prime example of what a man can do if he tries. If he applies himself to making himself better. He is at the pinnacle of his career because he deserves it. And he deserves the respect of all of us. Whether you are liberal, conservative, middle of the road...whether you agree or disagree with his views...this is a man worthy of respect.

The Do-Nothing Democrats

"Phony Soldiers."

This small statement said in conversation with a caller almost 2 weeks ago is still a hot topic on Capitol Hill.

Dirty Harry Reid has led an effort to smear, attack, degrade, and pretty much call for the suspension, if not complete removal from air, Rush Limbaugh. Our tax dollars are funding the salaries of these soundbite mongers. Our tax dollars are being spent on representatives who chose to spend time arguing against a private citizen instead of trying to fix the problems this country is facing.

And its all over a blatant LIE.

It is a LIE...there is nothing to argue or debate about. What Reid and his liberal wack-job cohorts are crying foul about is a lie. It is a manipulation of the situation. It is a blatant attack on an American citizen and what they do or don't do in their occupation.

Rush did say the words "Phony Soldiers," in reference to former military speaking out against the Iraq war. The catch to these people, the snafu that makes them, in fact, phony, is the small detail that they WERE NEVER IN IRAQ. While everyone is entitled to their opinion, former military who never served in Iraq should not speak against the war as though they have been in this particular war.

Other media outlets, including ABC, have used the term before. "Phony Soldiers" is not something coined by Rush. Yet, to hear the Congressional record the past two weeks, you would think "Phony Soldiers" was a term coined by an anti-troop, anti-war, anti-American kook...but Rush is not on Air America...Rush is about as Patriotic, pro-Soldier as one can get. He has visited Walter Reed, toured the bases in Afghanistan and Iraq, and constantly supports the troops in every way he can.

Yet, Rush, Sean Hannity, and any right-wing commentator these liberals can think of, are being dragged through the mud as being everything the liberals have actually been. Anti-American. Anti-Troop. Anti-Patriotic.

It was a democrat liberal who called our troops "Nazi's."

It was a democrat liberal who said that our troops "terrorize women and children in the dark of night."

It was a democrat who compared the troops in our war prisons to those of the Russian "gulags."
It is the liberal democrat movement to cut funding for the well as cut the defense budget to force us out of Iraq. (In the meantime, the troops will have to start chucking rocks and empty clips at the enemy as the money runs out.)

When Ahmadenijiad came to Columbia, he was speaking from liberal democratic talking points. (Did you really NOT notice how much like Hillary or Edwards or Reid or Pelosi Ahmadenijiad sounded?)

You see, the liberals know truth, facts, reality, and human decency really won't get them into control. They cannot defeat a true conservative in a one-on-one, mature debate.

Instead, they spend time NOT fixing social security, NOT fixing the fledgling Welfare System, NOT securing our borders, and NOT protecting us from future attacks. They choose to attack radio commentators who do little more than give the other side of the story...known in most dictionaries as the truth. I guess when your approval rating is lower than the President you've spent 8 years lying about, you have to attack someone else.

I pay a lot in taxes. A little less than I did in the 90's, percentagewise at least. In losing money to the government, I would like to see my dollars better spent. I think it is a gross waste of time for Congress to be stalled for 2 weeks to debate and discuss a two-word statement by a private citizen. Its such a waste of time and money.

I guess though, what can you expect. In their year since the major upset win in 2006, what have they done? The war continues, with progress, despite their constant emboldening of the enemy. Their non-binding resolution parade of the spring was nothing but a waste of time. Their blatant smear attacks on General Petraeus was dispicable. What have they really done since the election?

I think its time these democrats get back to work.

I mean, come on, there are thousands more bridges and post offices to rename.

About Me...And This Blog Site...

My name is David A. Ebert, the oldest of two siblings produced by my parents, Leah and David G. Ebert. We are all Republicans, but I take it a toke or two...well, closer to 10 tokes...further than my parents,

I am very much a Right Wing Conservative. I am a Reagan Conservative. I believe Americans, in general, are smarter than elected officials in Washington, DC. We should be more in charge than the Government.

We, as individuals and families, should have more responsibility over our own, hard-earned money and not send more and more and more taxes to the out-of-touch politicians. I believe the government is there to serve us, and not us to serve them.

I believe in America's greatness and that, overall, we are the most generous, forgiving, intelligent, and genuinely decent country in the world. I also believe that we are the most powerful nation in the history of the world, but do not use that power to hold over the collective heads of other nations.

I believe that low taxes, intelligent spending of those tax revenues, strong initiatives on defense and education, and small government influence on the day-to-day lives of Americans are some of the most important ideals related to how the US should be operated.I believe in the freedoms granted by the US Constitution. I believe that judges should uphold and interpret the laws as written in the US Constitution, and not refer to any foreign legislation to make their historic decisions.

I believe the First Amendment, as well as the entire Bill of Rights, are the most important laws this world has ever seen.

I believe abortion is WRONG. I believe that homosexuality is WRONG. I believe that allowing anyone to publicly debate the possibility of lowering the age of consent, especially for young boys to consent to older men, is a tragedy of morality. I believe that organizations like NAMBLA should be publicly shunned and not given a platform to spew their harmful and dangerous rhetoric.

I believe there is a sad lacking in the ability of our nation to appreciate and accept self responsibility. We, as a nation, blame daddy, racism, sexism, classism, mommy, the mean teacher, the mean little league coach, the loud mouthed uncle, the financial status of the neighborhood in which we grew up in, and a million and one other reasons why we do not succeed. How often do we, as a nation, take the blame for our own mistakes? How often do you hear someone accept responsibility for their own mistakes? How often?

I am conservative. I am worried about the future of the country and the planet, especially if O-BOMB-A or Billary Clinton make it to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I will start posting my fears, my hopes, my ideas as they all relate to news and politics. I hope to open some eyes and change some opinions with my writings. Most of all, I hope you will read my words and be inspired to find the truth...and not rely on Chris Matthews or Keith Olberman or Katie Couric or Matt Lauer for your opinions. I hope you will break the mold and do something something that O-BOMB-A and Billary are afraid of you doing...
