How Did We Get Here?

January 15th, 2017 . by Cary

How many times have you heard that since the results of the election have been finalized? How many times have you heard that since the Electoral College worked the way it was designed, and it was announced that Donald Trump would be the next President of the United States?

Appropriation of another culture: “Yes, we can.” – Barack Obama(THHO, New Hampshire Campaign Speech, January 8, 2008 (originated in May 1972 with the United Farm Workers, organized by Chavez)

On what happens when Obama(THHO speaks: “… I felt this thrill going up my leg.” – Chris Matthews, “Journalist”, NBC News, March 27, 2008 (so much for only reporting the news, not being the news)

Not recognizing when people are following their country’s traditions” “… they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion …” – Barack Obama(THHO, April 2008

On his own abilities: “I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.” – Barack Obama(THHO, November 2008 (narcissism became a hallmark of this administration)

Calling Social Security an Entitlement, instead of what it is – a program we are forced to pay into, with a promise of being cared for when we retire: “What we have done is kicked this can down the road. We are now at the end of the road and are not in a position to kick it any further. We have to signal seriousness in this by making sure some of the hard decisions are made under my watch, not someone else’s.” – Barack Obama(THHO, January 15, 2009 (if we are forced to pay into it in order to receive a stipen from it later, then it’s not an entitlement, we earned it)

On Republican opposition to stimulus package: “I won.” – Barack Obama(THHO, January 23, 2009 (So, when someone else wins, are you going to peacefully wish them well while leading by example, or are you going to foment civil unrest while leading by example?)

Making a promise: “First of all, if you’ve got health insurance, you like your doctor, you like your plan – you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. Nobody is talking about taking that away from you.” – Barack Obama(THHO, July 16, 2009

Daring the GOP: “So sue me.” – Barack Obama(THHO, July 1, 2014, regarding his excessive use of Executive Orders.

Resulting in many voters having a “Huh?” look on their face during eight years of his presidency, Obama(THHO repeatedly said one thing and did another. Blaming his administration’s stumbles, gaffs, and short falls on the previous administrations actions, he has proven over and over again that he is unwilling to take responsibility for his own actions.

In many high-profile cases, the administration openly flaunted the intent of the laws they were sworn to uphold, and claimed they had, technically, held to the letter of the same laws. Of course, when this results in straw-man purchases of weapons that are then handed over to Mexican drug cartels, and subsequently used in gun battles which result in the death of one of our own Border Guards, nothing is done, since the administration foxes are investigating the administration hen house. Over and over, actions which would land a citizen in jail (openly releasing classifies information, “losing” six billion dollars in budget money with no idea where it went, etc) resulted in Democrat politicians not being punished. This is a sure way to alienate a good number of people, regardless of their political bent, since “decent human beings” are not prone to habitually breaking the law – and getting away with it.

The choices were narrowed down, on the left, to a woman who claimed “It’s my turn!” and a man who claimed “College should be free” – with neither statement grounded in reality. We don’t “take turns” being president, no one “earns it – and if something is given to you free of charge, then someone else had to pay for it, including that college education. Teachers don’t work for free, buildings cannot be maintained for free, books cannot be produced for free. Everything costs money, somewhere along the line.

Tying your legacy to the whims of a group: “There’s no such thing as a vote that doesn’t matter. It all matters. And after we have achieved historic turnout in 2008 and 2012, especially in the African-American community, I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election.” – Barack Obama(THHO, September 2016 speech to the Congressional Black Caucus.

Disparaging those who don’t think the same way you do: “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” – Hillary Clinton, September 9, 2016

The Second Amendment: “I support the second amendment, but …” – Hillary Clinton, anytime she is asked about the Second Amendment. Anytime you qualify an “agreeing” statement with “but” then you do not fully agree with the statement.

So, to those who wonder “How did we get here?” – I say, look in the mirror. If you supported the party that boos parliamentary procedure, that openly supported the killing of babies in the womb, that continually tries to cover up the fact that they are raiding the Social Security accounts to spend money on other programs – YOU are how “We” got here.

If you cannot understand why a non-establishment, business-owner-former-democrat-running-as-a-republican got elected, since “everyone you know” agreed with either socialism or communism (Hillary or Bernie, respectively), then you are how we got here.

Re-elect None Of Them

Time to clean house, eh?

Sunday Afternoon Patriotism

September 22nd, 2013 . by Cary

How strong should the government be? IT has been said that a government big enough to take care of your every need is strong enough to take away everything you have.

“[T]he government must be a weak one indeed, if it should forget that the good of the whole can only be promoted by advancing the good of each of the parts or members which compose the whole.”

–John Jay, Federalist No. 64, 1788

Founder’s Quote Daily

Seems to me the government think it’s already strong enough to start taking away that which it does not have the authority to give in the first place.

“It is very imprudent to deprive America of any of her privileges. If her commerce and friendship are of any importance to you, they are to be had on no other terms than leaving her in the full enjoyment of her rights.”

–Benjamin Franklin, Political Observations

Founder’s Quote Daily

Remember that our rights are given by God, not granted by any body of men. In spite of what the anti-theists will have you believe, this country WAS founded by men who knew that their blessing were bestowed by God. The COnstitution and the Declaration of Independence both mention this fact very plainly, while also restricting the governmental form being founded from forcing or restricting any religious teaching. If the founders had fully understood, as we are coming to understand today, that islam is not a religion but a quasi-governmental form in and of itself, they would have put a restriction on it – or would they? Why doesn’t the government now in place outlaw the set of laws (sharia) that rule islam? For fear of restricting a religion? But, if there are laws that control you away from your worship, is it really a religion, or is it a government? I’m pretty sure it’s a government, with it’s own courts and codes. It cannot co-exist with an established representative republic, without one being pushed out by the other.

Biggest problem I see here is that the American People are too polite to push back. Let’s see what happens if/when an islamic no-go zone is introduced in an American city.

Double Standards and the Hypocrisy of the Left

June 23rd, 2013 . by Cary

So, Paula Deen (the best cook ever, sorry Mom) gets fired for coming from a culture that used to use the “N” word.

Seems to be just last Friday L’il Wayne was hollering that word very loudly while filming a video of him stomping on the American Flag. His record label not only didn’t fire him, but is continuing to promote his records. Double standard much?

Seems to me Bill Maher got a free pass when he used the “C” word to refer to Sarah Palin. This was a direct attack on a single person, not a general description of a race of people. The “C” word is offensive to a lot of people; why does Maher still have a job? Hypocrisy much?

The double standard and hypocrisy of the Left Leaning Libtards is sickening to me. Clean up your own house before crying about any one else’s, you little whiners.

I Am Not Hating Anyone

August 5th, 2012 . by Cary

I have been accused (by family members, no less!) of being a hateful man. I have been accused of not being tolerant of those who think differently than I do. I have been accused of HATING certain religious belief systems, and MAKING UP phrases such as “The Homosexual Agenda”.

To borrow a phrase, “guilty as charged”. Well, guilty of being truthful, which appears to be hate to certain people, especially those who allow their “feelings” to overrule their “thinkings”.

I am tolerant, of those who are trying to live correctly. I am NOT tolerant of those who try to force their ideologies on me or my family – and by “ideologies” I mean trying to convince me that homosexuality is “normal” and an “accepted” part of society now. (no, they are not. they may be considered normal and acceptable by liberal left leaning peoples, but not by true Christians.) And intolerant? How about when Christians decide not to support a business, and are called “racist” for doing so? How about when Christians decide to show their SUPPORT for a business and are called “racist” for doing so? Who is intolerant?

As far as the “Homosexual Agenda” – tell me you haven’t noticed that every prime-time show now has a “gay” character – or a “gay couple” – and the other characters pretend it is normal. Yes, the producers of those shows are trying to convince people that these types of relationships are normal and accepted. THAT is the Homosexual Agenda.

Don’t take my word for it – the mainstream media has been slanting coverage and cherry-picking stories for a while now. A man with a blog that I just found today, Lloyd Marcus, states the whole issue, even addressing the “racist” issue obliquely, in his post:

My conversation with Dad was yesterday. He called me at 9AM this morning. “Why haven’t I heard about what Christians were doing in support of Chick-fil-A?” I told Dad the reason is because the mainstream media, where he gets his news, is in the pocket of the socialists/progressives who embrace same-sex marriage. The mainstream media (CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC) gave the phenomenon minimal coverage.

Dad was surprised to learn that all who oppose same-sex marriage are branded bigots and haters by his beloved Democratic Party and the mainstream media. Dad said he does not hate or judge anyone. However, the Bible says homosexuality is wrong. He must stand on the Word of God.

You can read the whole post here.

Now, really, you gonna call a black gentleman who happens to be a conservative Christian “racist” too?

Isn’t that kind of … I don’t know, maybe intolerant of you?
