Why I don't give the benefit of the doubt to the left...

There are so many people who believe without question in the agenda of the left. They defend to their own demise the policies and programs developed by liberals. They ignore facts to the contrary of their beliefs. They are locked into their beliefs without doubt or ability to admit wrong.

So, maybe they could possibly be right? Maybe their ideals are best. Why can I not give the benefit of the doubt?

I look at how the current administration and the current Congress treat everyday Americans. I study how reactions from those in power relate to the reality of their opposition. Then, I came to a conclusion about whether or not the left could be right.

The left is wrong. They are killing the country. Nearly everything Rush, Hannity, Levin, and even Beck are saying is en route to reality. How do I know? Look at the debate.

Conservative: I disagree with the plans for Health Care Reform. I fear the unintended consequences will result in rationing and even further difficulty for seniors to get and pay for needed care.
Liberal: RACIST! You are a bigot. You are a homophobe and a sexist. I am afraid of the violent rhetoric you are spewing.
Conservative: I am only voicing my opposition and utilizing my Constitutional rights. I think Health Care Reform and Cap and Tax will further destroy our country.
Liberal: Destroy our country? You are threatening our country with destruction?
Conservative: What? I want to peaceably assemble to petition my government for redress of my grievances.
Liberal: Racist! Seditionist! You Nazi with your guns rights and Constitution. You are dangerous! Someone needs to stop you before someone gets killed!
Enter SEIU members to attack nearest black person at Tea Party rally.

Conservatives express legitimate, fact-based concerns. Liberals call them racists and bigots and seditionists. It's like an adult arguing with a child. The adult uses logic, the child gets mad and screams and name-calls. Who is usually right when a child and adult disagree in this manner?

If the liberals could defend and demonstrate, with facts, that what they are pushing through is true, right, and accurate, why is their first, second, and only reaction name calling and marginalization of opponents?

The fact is, they can't. They know the opposition is right, so they have to legitimize them instead of de-legitimize their own agenda. Ask yourself, when you disagree with a friend or loved one, if they resort to name calling and attempting to devalue you as a human being, who is the person that is most likely right? Who is most likely on the correct side of an issue when one side cites facts, ideas, different solutions, and legitimate concerns, or the side who resorts to childish name-calling and baseless accusations?

Think about it.

SEC...Securities and Exchange? Or Sexually Explicit?

While the economy was teetering, and Obama's reckless policies were further pushing the economy over the cliff, the government agency whose sole job is to monitor and attempt to prevent such disasters was a little busy. Busy downloading sexually explicit materials onto tax-payer purchased computers.

Some of these people are high-ranking executives being paid over $220,000, per year. They are still cashing those tax-payer-funded paychecks. These people, who obviously abused their positions, failed at their assigned jobs, and misused the equipment they were assigned for specific purposes. Nonetheless, they are still cashing their paychecks.

I am writing this blog as I work at an answering service. The night hours are slow and allow for some free time to check e-mail and blog. As long as I answer the phone and take the messages, whatever I do is pretty much up to me. Writing this blog is fine. Should I determine that I wanted to download similar videos and photos as the SEC. I would be fired on the spot once discovered.

However, because of unions and government procedure, these fools are still employed. One senior attorney, according to the New York Daily News, was "asked to resign." Another employee of the SEC, an accountant, was blocked by the SEC firewall 16,000, times in one month. If that was a 31-day month, with 23 working days, this accountant would have had to have attempted to view 700 pages PER DAY that were blocked by the firewall. For his efforts, he received a two-week suspension.

And we are going to have government in charge of health care? Government is going to save us from economic decline and travesty? Government is going to save the day? Only if the entire porn industry is completely deleted from the Internet.

And they say the Tea Party is all about hate....

So, being the type of person I am, I joined a left-wing propaganda group on Facebook. This particular group was railing against a joke going around on the Internet. The joke goes as follows:
It is meant to be funny. There is no hate, bigotry, or malice intended. It's supposed to be funny. It is not a legit prayer asking for a real death or demise for President Barack Hussein Obama. It is a joke. End of story.

Let us not forget the shuddering silence that followed plays and books that fantasized about the untimely death of George W. Bush. There was unbridled hate and vitriol aimed at Bush and Dick Cheney for eight years, and it came from the media, from entertainers, from bloggers, and not just wild fringe elements. Yet, because the elites deemed conservatives and Republicans as less than human, any kind of attack was allowed and welcomed.


I joined this Facebook group full of liberal sheep who see Obama as a deity and not a human. It is a group calling for the deletion and banning of a group who uses the above joke as the group title. These liberal whiners claim its racist, bigoted, and evil. (The same brand of people who laugh when Trigg Palin is made fun of on Family Guy or when Todd Palin is accused of being sexually involved with his daughters...ironic, huh? I joined in order to offer a chance for real debate on this issue and the double standard in how people react to how liberals and how Conservatives are treated.

I debated one particular individual who called himself Luis Stevens Guerrero. I offered merit-based, fact-based arguments. He resorted to name-calling, insults, and constant degradation against me and all Conservatives. I told him that his last name, Guerrero, means warrior, and its a shame he cannot be a warrior for his own beliefs and defend how he feels. His responses directly to me were ignorant, weak, and childish. I accused him of coming to a battle of wits unarmed. End of argument, or so I thought.

Luis Stevens Guerrero decided to go to my profile and find out who my mom is. He then proceeds to send the following e-mail message to my mother:
You should have aborted David.


Thus is the typical garbage as spewed by a vast majority of the left.

Need more? Let's look at Obama ally Bertha Lewis, the head of ACORN. She spoke to a group of young Democratic Socialists, applauded them as being socialists, and then compared anyone who opposes socialism to the racists and bigots who believed in segregation, internments, and other great racial travesties. She then called the TEA Party movement a "bowel movement."

How about the lies that democratic senators told the media about being called the "N" word during the Tea Party protests outside the Capitol prior to the health care vote. No video nor audio evidence has been produced, even with Andrew Breitbart's $100K bounty for such evidence, to support the claims. Yet, the media and anyone on the left continues the narrative accusing the Tea Party of being racist.

The left cannot defeat the Tea Party on facts and reason, so they result to hate. They result to name calling. They result to writing to mothers of conservatives to tell that innocent mother that she should have aborted her conservative child.

The left is truly a class act.

Tea Party Day...No Violence?

For the last 10 months, or longer, we have heard from elected officials how potentially violent, scary, and bigoted the Tea Party movement was. We heard how members of Congress were frightened of the Tea Partiers and the potential for violence their movement created.

On April 15, 2010, 3 million people gathered in public squares throughout the land at over 1,000, different Tea Party locations, and not one arrest. Not one broken window. Not one injury. Just 3 million Americans of all races, genders, creeds, ages, and backgrounds coming together, singing patriotic songs, and letting their feelings be known.

I know that most people do not take it as a shock that the Tea Party movement held their 1,000, rallies throughout America without incident. However, if there was any question as to whether or not the Tea Party protesters were truly dangerous, all you needed to do was witness Nancy Pelosi and members of Congress parading, unnecessarily, through the protesters en route to passing the Health Care Reform fiasco.

Pelosi is one of the most notorious attackers of the Tea Party movement, accusing them of being "astroturf," meaning a fake grassroots, accusing them of being potentially violent Nazis, and other insulting, degrading, marginalizing comments. The entire Democrat party and the Mainstream Media has taken and ran with the idea of racism, bigotry, and potential violence by Tea Party members. Yet, they walked through, without reason other than to taught the protesters on that day. If it was so dangerous, why risk it?

Fact is, Tea Party members are good, proud Americans. They love the US and the Constitution that should be the guiding force behind the way the government operates. It is the Tea Party that remembers we have a Constitution. The pompous Congressmen and Congresswomen who strutted through the peaceably assembled masses of protesters use the Constitution as a floormat.

However, leaving a Republican party event in New Orleans called the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, an aid to Governor Bobby Jindall and her boyfriend were beaten and sent to the hospital with broken bones. Where is the outcry? Where is the wall-to-wall coverage? No where.

This picture, from Andrew Beitbart's website, (LINK to photo/story) shows the aftermath.

Let us not forget, Obama's friends from the SEIU. I say friends because the SEIU has had more access to the President and his staff than General McChrystal. The SEIU has had representatives visit the White House, sign in the official guest registry than any other visitor or entity. The SEIU showed their true colors in St. Louis, without any mainstream media coverage...

Yet, TEA Party members are racist, bigoted, and violent? Really?

Andrew Breitbart has been offering $100K of his own money for evidence of the "N" word being shouted outside the Capital during the Health Care protests. This offer has been posted online, on Breitbart's Twitter page, and during his television appearances since the day of the alleged racial slurs. Over a month later, not one shred of video evidence. Not one taker. Yet, MSNBC, CNN, NBC, and ABC ran with the racial slur accusations as if they were indisputable facts. (Kinda like the whole Global Warming thing, which has been virtually debunked thanks to the leaked emails last summer.)

The fact is, if you have the ability to think for yourself, you can see through the garbage. If the TEA Party WERE violent and dangerous, there would be visual evidence run 24/7, unlike the left-wing flag burners outside the White House who were ignored by the mainstreamers. If the TEA Party movement was wrong and the Democrats were actually doing the right thing, why do they have to resort to name calling and insults? Why can't they beat us with REAL facts and transparency?

In all reality, the Democrats and liberals in power are wrong. They know they are doing wrong. They know that the protesters and TEA Party members and Conservatives are right, which is why they refuse to fight with facts. Instead, they try to marginalize and insult and degrade their opponents. Like a couple children fighting, when one child has been bested, he resorts to name calling, yelling, and crying, rather than sticking up for himself and his beliefs.

The TEA Party movement is heading in the right direction. America needs to dust herself off and stand strong once again. That will begin in earnest the first week of November 2010, and will continue through November 2012.

NEW American Pie- Obama and Democrat Party Tribute

A long, long time ago...
I can still remember
How that freedom used to make me smile.
And I knew here I had my chance
That I could work to make my life enhance.
And, maybe, I'd pursue "happy" for a while.

But health care bill made me shiver
With all the lies they'd deliver.
Bad news from Ms. Pelosi;
Can't Ameri-ca see?

I can't believe the tactics tried
Smoke and mirrors nearly my brain fried,
But they angered us deep inside
The day that freedom died.

So my, my, this here Obama guy
Wanted this bill crammed through the hill,
Despite the massive outcry.
And the Tea Party boys were protestin' in vain outside
Chantin', "this'll be the day the bill dies!
"We're tired of your political lies!"

Did you pass this bill of fibs
And do you have faith in Robert Gibbs,
If Obama says you must?
Do you ignore all the polls,
Can government save our mortal souls,
And tell me in Progressives we should trust?

Well, I know Pelosi wants it passed
despite her numbers fallin' really fast.
Her and Reid stopped debate.
Man, November'll be too late!

We felt ignored, they passed the buck
Had hope for Scott Brown's pickup truck,
But I knew we were out of luck
The day that freedom died.

I started shoutin',
My, my, this here Obama guy
Wanted this bill crammed through the hill,
Despite the massive outcry.
And the Tea Party boys were protestin' in vain outside
Chantin', "this'll be the day the bill dies!
"We're tired of your political lies!"

Now for ten years it's 'posed to cost less
But to me it seems like a big mess,
But that's not how it used to be.
When the elected answered to you and me,
In a country of the brave and free
And a nation united sea to sea!

Oh, and while Obama was talking down,
Awaiting his expected crown.
The Congress was coerced;
Power 'n greed won first.
And while bribes and deals were done,
On our dollars they had some fun,
And we protested in the sun
The day that freedom died.

We were mourning,
"My, my, this here Obama guy
Wanted this bill crammed through the hill,
Despite the massive outcry.
And the Tea Party boys were protestin' in vain outside
Chantin', "this'll be the day the bill dies!
"We're tired of your political lies!"

Health Care Reform Update

If you, no matter which side you support, would take time and listen to the pundits and the politicians weigh in on this topic, and would consider both sides without bias, it is clear which side is correct in this matter.

Before I explain why I think one side is correct and the other side is destructlively wrong, let me pose a series of questions. These are rhetorical, but if you would like to leave a comment with your answer, please feel free.

1) When has the US Government EVER created a series of programs and beauracrasies that made the government larger, but more efficient?

2) Do you REALLY think that giving the IRS more jurisdiction and power is a good thing for the American family?

3) How much money should successful people be made to forfeit in the name of redistribution?

4) Why do people that don't work and don't strive deserve to be taken care of off the backs of the people who do work?

5) If the bill was so fantastic and so wonderful, why the talk of circumventing rules and procedures to cram it through?

6) How in the world is a federal government takeover of the student loan program, taking the power to lend away from banks and private institutions (except one) part of health care reform?

Just some questions to ponder.

Now back to the opening ideas of this post. Let us look at the arguements for and against this plan. Look at the differences in the wording of the responses of each side. This is where I confirmed my belief that this fiasco is going to destroy our country, and not from Hannity, Limbaugh, Beck, or even Mark Levin.

As I read and watched the arguements from both sides, I found a trend and a pattern. This pattern showed me which side was telling us the truth and which side was using strange forms of double-talk straigh out of Orwell.

On one side, you have people citing facts and programs actually in the bill. They explain how the downside of the plans in the bill will potentially destroy the economy, kill jobs, and potentially kill the very people the bill is advertised to save. This side speaks in facts, reality, and with a passion for our country.

On the other side, you will hear a lot of platitudes and wishful thinking. You have leaders in the Congress selling the plan as a way for struggling artists, writers, and musicians to quit their jobs they keep for insurance benefits and pursue their dreams. It is a way for potential entreprenures to quit day jobs and eliminate the risks to their families of being uninsured. They talk in lofty dreams and utopian ideas. They talk about how there is only one way to fix the problems in the health care system, meanwhile ignoring some of the biggest problems that are really there. They will tax everything under the sun, except for things they like, such as the Botox tax and taxes on plastic surgery. Despite the political alliance with the American Medical Association, which is just a political group and not an actual representation of medical personnel, actual doctors are not involved in the bill. Lawyers are. There is no tort reform included because why would lawyers limit their own income streams?

As any person will tell you, our system has flaws and does need some work. We need to find a way to lower the cost of an Aspirin in a hospital from $50 a pill. Band-aids need to cost less than $25. Yet, this bill will do the opposite. Costs for the average person will skyrocket.

This bill disallows the practices of insurance companies denying pre-existing conditions. However, it does nothing to protect the insurance company from abuse. Let's say you have no insurance but have a heart attack. Your spouse can call and purchace insurance en route to the hospital to cover the ambulance ride and the treatment for the heart attack. And the insurance company would have to, by law, cover you. I am sure that will lower insurance costs, right?

This bill will also force, legally arm-twist, all Americans into purchasing insurance. There are many people who prefer to pay out of pocket for services instead of deal with the hassle of filing claims and et cetra. For a relatively healthy person, it's more cost effective to pay $2000-$4000 in medical bills on the rare occasion they need services, than to pay $750-$1000+ a month every year, plus their deductibles and co-pays. There will be fines levied against those who do not purchase a government approved plan.

Which brings me to my next concern. What the heck is a "government approved plan?" Some group of senators, along with their lobbyists and SEIU friends, are going to determine what qualifies as an "approved" plan? What if my current plan doesn't meet their arbitrary standards? Do I have to change it, despite Obama's repeated promises that if I am happy, I can keep my plan? If a body of people cannot efficiently get a letter from West Virginia to Virginia, cannot find an efficient way to bill and receive taxes, and cannot find a way to market the census without wasting millions to hire Ed Begley and create a SUPERBOWL ad, I just cannot believe they will find a way to create a fair and efficient mandate on what makes for a "government approved insurance plan."

This bill is so far-reaching and creates so many beauracrasies. It grows our federal government exponentially. It will make everyone who purchases insurance see huge spikes in their rates. It will force companies to drop benefits packages because it will be too expensive. This bill will force the single-payer option on us because it is designed to bankrupt every single insurance company out there. Once the government is completely in control of health care, as Obama and many democrats have said is their end goal, then there is no going back. This bill will force our country into the same failing health system that Canada, the UK, and Cuba have. People will die sooner waiting for the most basic of needs. Minorities will see a drastic decline in their numbers because the most resources will be sent to the higher priority neighborhoods. This bill will KILL AMERICA.

Being A Man

Tonight I was flipping through the channels and came across one of my favorite episodes of "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." This episode is not one of the funniest ones, but instead it is one of the greatest commentaries on society and being a man I have ever seen. It is also, in my estimation, some of, if not the, best acting Will Smith has ever put on display.

So, here is the synopsis. Lou Smith, Will's long-lost father, jumps into the picture for the first time in 14 years. Lou is a truck driver and finds Will during a trip to L.A. Suddenly, Will's dream has come true...daddy's home. This causes some painful friction with Uncle Phil as Will wants his Daddy to be what Will missed for a decade and a half. At the end, we see Lou bail on Will again, then Will reacts as most teens would. He got angry, indignant, then let the pain come through in one of the most powerful lines in television history..."How come he don't want me, man?"

I have seen this episode several times, and it still makes me emotional and feel for the millions of kids who live without fathers everyday. Having worked in the childcare industry, I have seen the damage bad parenting, as well as a complete lack of parenting, can cause children. And this episode of "Fresh Prince" just rings home so true.

In life, for a guy, there are a few defining decisions that will determine who you really are. Sometimes those are small decisions, sometimes they are life-changing decisions. However, there is usually only one choice that a true, real man will make.

Some of the big decisions are based on relationships with people in your life. For instance, no MAN has ever hit his wife/girl friend/fiance. Yes, there are males who hit females, but, I say again, no MAN has EVER hit a woman. In my book, you officially lose your right to call yourself a man the second you lay your hand on your woman.

Next, no MAN sits on his rear end and does nothing to better himself and the lives of those he cares about. A male who waits on a free check, or spends all his time drunk or high, or otherwise wastes his life and does not work to provide, he is not a real MAN. Now, let me clarify, if there is a family unit in which the wife has a career and the man is a stay at home daddy, as long as that daddy works to keep the house operating and provides discipline and structure and love for the kids, then that man is providing for his family. However, the drunk/high, loser sitting at home not taking care of what needs done is not, in my book, a man.

Then we get to the point of the show, and that is no MAN ever, ever up-and-abandoned his family. No MAN ever left his child in the rearview mirror to fend for him- or herself in life. Daddy is, in many ways, just as important as mommy in the development of a child. Daddy needs to be there. No MAN ever left that responsibility behind. If you are someone who left his child or children behind, you, sir, are not a man. If you didn't do everything you possible could to be in your child or children's life/lives, you are not a man.

I just needed to get that off my chest. Our society is in a severe shortage of real men. We are in a desperate need for daddies. If you are man enough to have sex, you better be man enough to be there for the kids you create. They need you.

Don't ever be the kind of person who leads a kid to ask, "Why don't he want me, man?"

Big Mac...Slammin' Sammy?

In 2010's first "Well, duh!" moment in sports, Mark McGwire came out to announce that he had, in fact, taken steroids and Human Growth Hormone, throughout most of the 1990's.

So, Mark McGwire is no longer the last man on earth denying his steroid use. We all knew. Everyone on ESPN knew. Everyone on the Cardinals roster knew. So, no shock and no suspense-relief there. However, this opens the door and gives way to the question: What about Sammy Sosa?

Did Sammy do it? Most likely. So, if he did, perhaps its time for Sammy to clear the air as well. I think everyone who earned major prominence during the "Steroid Era" should go ahead and come clean. Cal Ripken, Jr., might have used some supplemental support to make that Iron Man streak a reality...who knows? The thing is, at the time, such supplements were NOT ILLEGAL. So, it is not like rules were violated.

Yet, there are purists who are arguing that steroids, regardless of the rules of baseball, are a black mark on the history of baseball. Many think that any records or marks made by those guilty of participating in the Steroid Era should be somehow erased or covered up. Some would wipe the books clean of any mention of the steroid users and their impact on the game.

I would argue that, despite your feelings on steroids and whether the fact there was no rules broken at the time they were taken, both Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa deserve to be in the Hall of Fame. Put an asterisk or a parentheses and explain the Steroid Era, but put these two in, and even give the same treatment to Barry Bonds. However, McGwire and Sosa deserve to be in the Hall, and here is why.

Whether they get enshrined or not, McGwire and Sosa need to be included in the story of professional baseball and the Hall of Fame. Four years after a season that ended on August 12, cancelling a World Series, baseball was reeling. Ratings were hurting. Baseball was becoming a footnote.

Mark McGwire was consistently teasing us with the home run record, but could not push over the hump. It was fun to talk about it, to dream about seeing number 62 go over the fences. Yet, there was no buzz. The country did not take notice of baseball. We needed a reason to get excited about baseball again.

Then, June 1998 happened. Sammy Sosa drives 20 long balls and suddenly, the chase for Roger Maris is a two-man sprint through the summer. McGwire and Sosa spent the summer playing "Anything you can do, I can do better!" And the nation, and the world, took notice. Baseball was fun. Baseball was exciting. Baseball was BACK!

The 1998 season was a magical year. In May, a young fireballer, sharing the same lockerroom as Sosa, named Kerry Wood turned a lot of heads with his 20 strike-out performance against the Houston Astros. Wrigley Field would soon become the stage for a year of history. In baseball's second oldest stadium, some of the most memorable moments of all time would occur.

Kerry Wood's 20 Ks started it all, but Sammy Sosa's 20 dingers in June caused baseball fever to spread faster than H1N1 hysteria. For about 3 1/2 months, America, and the world, watched magic happen.

Sosa. McGwire. McGwire. Sosa. Back and forth. Day by day, history inched closer. Who would finally cross the threshold?

The fun, excitement, and joy that all of baseball experienced that wonderful summer saved Major League Baseball. McGwire and Sosa took baseball and carried on their broad shoulders back to glory. Major League Baseball would not be anything close to what it is now were it not for 1998 and the McGwire-Sosa Home Run Derby.

So, put an asterisk, footnote, parenthesis, or some other denotation to make note of the Steroid Era; do what you will. But, McGwire and Sosa deserve to be in the Hall of Fame for their contributions to baseball. Barry Bonds, on the same grounds, deserves that as well.

Negro Dialects and Liberal Gifts to Blacks

Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid referred to Barack Obama as not having a "negro dialect." But, it was meant as complimentary, and not as an insult. So, since he is liberal and in a position of power that is vital to the further government take-over of America, his comments are excused, defended, and ignored.

It just amazes me the blind, and often ignorant, manner in which minorities, especially African-Americans follow Democrats. No matter what the facts are, African-Americans, speaking only in terms of the vast majority, will blindly follow the left and buy whatever it is they are selling.

In so many instances, such as affirmative action, liberls spew this mantra of how unfair and uneven the world is for minorities, and then tell minorities only politicians can help them overcome the biases. Rarely, if ever, do you hear a liberal politician preach on the merits and efforts of minorities, but how they, the politician, can help lower the bar and assist the minorities in getting to where they want to be.

The truth is, liberals treat blacks, hispanics, and other minority groups like caged animals. They give minorities small bits of raw meat to keep them happy and fed, the whole time killing their insticts to hunt and work for themselves. "Here, here is a free check because you're black and life is unfair." "We will never cut welfcare because cutting it would be racist since so many blacks are stuck on welfare." "Here, take this job that you aren't trained for because you are black. You won't get fired, either, because you are black and life is unfair for you."

Liberals are some of the most racist people known to man. They hold minorities back by constantly lowering the bar and lowering expectations, thus cutting their legs from underneath them. They take away their desire to succeed by telling them it is near impossible to succeed because of so much stacked against them. Liberals are racists because they do everything to take away minorities' desire to better themselves. Welfare and Affirmitive Action are the new slavery.

Everything the liberals try to give to minorities is an empty suit, empty promise, and crippling to their human potential. Liberals will give everything they can think of to minorities, as long as it is on the taxpayers' bill, to keep them from actually trying to do it on their own.

In the 1960's, the democrats and liberals fought AGAINST the Civil Rights movement. Yes, AGAINST. It was the Republicans that supported and pushed-through the Civil Rights Act. Republicans and the Conservative Right love all people and support them in their struggles to improve their own lot. We, do not, however, think that anyone who is able, regardless of color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, sex, or gender, should be allowed to sit at home and live off the backs of the taxpayer. Some people cannot work, we know. However, there are millions of people who sit on their butt and live better than many who work to provide that life for them.

Yet, for me to put forth that belief, that people who are able need to earn their way and not mooch, I will be accused by some of being a racist, a bigot, and insensitive. There are too many people who refuse to ask people to earn their way because they are afraid of being called racist, which is sad. Telling the truth is racism? If telling the truth offends a race of people, then perhaps that group of people needs to work to change their truth.

In our country, liberals like Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid talk a good game for minorities during election cycles, but in all this time, with all these promises, with all these speeches, how much better off are minorities now? Most homeless are black. Most uneducated are black. Most unemployed are black. Most under employed are black. Most living in poverty are black. Its not racism, it is fact. It is tragic.

So much of what the liberals give to minorities is nothing but a half-hearted effort to manipulate, control, and quiet the minorities. Promises of freebies, free checks, reparations, free health care, and the power of the media and political machine to put pressure on anyone who dares hire more whites than blacks all work together to control minorities. Everything is an empty suit and an empty promise.

Liberals celebrated the candidacy of a black man for President of the United States. They talked about history and how important it was to elect a black man. They created an environment where people were made to feel guilty along the lines of bigotry and racism to vote for the black guy. In the Iowa caucuses, there was incredible pressure on these cornfield white people to pick the black guy and not be a racist by picking one of the whites. It is hard to vote for a white over a black when you are in a face-to-face group. Obama was selected by means of affirmative action in 2008. His selection was billed by the left as history in the making. It was moving and meaningful. Black President! Finally! Let's select the First Black President! Black President! That's what we heard from the left for 18 months...and still hear today.

Yet, just like everything else the left promises blacks, this promise and this event was only half-hearted and a way to gain control over blacks. They promoted and promised a black president...but what did the blacks get? A half-white president controlled by white 'massas' in Congress and at

2010 Predictions

1) Obama and the Dems will tout their victorious passing of "something" for health care reform. No one outside of talk radio and FNC will dare question what that "something" actually is, but the "something" is a historic "something." It could be good...could be bad...but they actually passed "something." And that "something" will be the landmark success that the media will tout to help build momentum toward the November mid-terms.

2) Cap and Tax will eventually pass. Another "something." It will include the promised tax payer funds for the global warming initiatives Obama agreed to in Copenhagen. Stimulus money will be used to put thousands of illegals to work to build homeless shelters and YMCAs to house the massive influx of homeless due to the high energy costs. Al Gore will fly around with Obama in Gore's private jet to various golf courses, taking breaks between holes to tout the green grass, the clean air, and the new green technology that is coming out in the coming months. The spike in homelessness will be blamed on the careless Bush policies that encouraged the alleged price gouging of big oil.

3) As the health reform bill gets through reconsiliation, and cap and tax builds momentum toward passing, the Obama administration will announce that television services and access to the important messages carried with the Emergency Broadcast System. They will blame Bush and rehash and rewrite the history of Katrina to emphasize the need for everyone to have access to clear, understandable television. A new tax on the viewers of the most successful cable news channel will pay for TV for all. Every person in America will be required to purchase a government approved television service with government approved channels with government approved programming. Finally, Barack will have an answer for Fox News....

4) In conjuction with the Right to Public Broadcast and Emergency Information Act, Chuck Schumer, D-NY, will add an amendment that will ressurrect the Fairness Doctrine. The Fairness Doctrine will garner the support of all Democrats. The justification of the amendment will be explained as follows: if all broadcasts, television, radio and otherwise, are subject to fairness and avoid one-sidedness, more people will be tuned in, therefore will have more readily available access to any important news and information through the Emergency Message System.

5) For anyone with a job, the government will absorb 100% of your check, send your family a box of food each week, all of which is grown on "green" and animal friendly farms, and determine the amount of kilowatthours your family can use in electricity each day. Hit the limit, your power goes off. So, cook dinner in the crockpot FIRST!

6) In late October, as more and more families lose jobs, homes, and cars, crime rates skyrocket, and civil unrest starts to become a trend, Barack Obama makes a heartfelt, sincere announcement in reference to the fear and worry America is feeling. With the support of Congress, Obama, in the interest of safety for the innocent, hard-working, suffering American people, the United States will not expose its citizens to the potential dangers and heightened emotions of an election night. As of November 1, 2010, all state and national elections will be post-poned until such time as joblessness, homelessness, and crime all see drastic declines.


Yeah. And if I told you in 2006 that by 2009, the US would have a weak puppet for a President who led an immature, unrestrained Congress into taking over General Motors, the banking industry, and the health care industry, you would think I was crazy then, too.

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...
