Cultural Appropriations

Saw this in the Woodpile Report of June 20, 2017 – credited to Taki’s Magazine:

“We would love to cut a deal with the noble indigenous peoples across the Earth — you can have your Navajo panties and aboriginal dot paintings and every last freaking burrito on the planet so long as you give us back our computers and cell phones and cars and indoor plumbing and electricity and air conditioners. Deal?”

Enough

February 15th, 2017 . by Cary

A few days ago, I asked for prayers for a decision to be made, for God’s leading.

Lead me he did.

I leave you with this prayer:

I pray that you have enough:
– of The Son to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the days may appear
– rain to help you appreciate The Son even more
– happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting
– pain so that even the smallest of joys in your life may appear bigger
– gain to satisfy your needs
– loss to appreciate all that you are blessed with
– hellos to get through the final good bye.

Chat ya later…

Wash, Rinse, Repeat

Up to 1774: this country faced a dependency on government largess for almost every need. The liberties of the people residing in this land were restricted and the government operated outside the rule of law, protecting and rewarding those who bought or coerced the rulers into satisfying their demands. The rulers acted as though they cared about the people, but in reality were out of touch with the day-to-day needs and actions of the general population, relying on their well-placed and well-to-do friends for information on what the people were actually doing.

1776: Independence was declared, constitutional government through a representative republic formed, freedom fought for and won from the ruling elites.

2016: this country faced a dependency on government largess for almost every need. The liberties enumerated in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights and all the Amendments were being restricted and the government was operating outside the rule of law, protecting and rewarding those who bought or coerced the rulers into satisfying their demands. The rulers acted as though they cared about the people, but in reality were out of touch with the day-to-day needs and actions of the general population, relying on their well-placed and well-to-do friends for information on what the people were actually doing.

Merry Christmas 2015

December 23rd, 2015 . by Cary

I’ve seen many versions of this over the years; in fact, I wrote one a while back but I’ll be darned if I can find it. Enjoy:

To MY Democrat Friends…

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2016, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere . Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

To the rest of you:

Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

Control For Thee, But Not For Me

February 25th, 2015 . by Cary

A question arises whether all the powers of government, legislative, executive, and judicial, shall be left in this body? I think a people cannot be long free, nor ever happy, whose government is in one assembly. –John Adams, Thoughts On Government, 1776

The pResident, Obama(THHO), has vetoed the Keystone XL pipeline, saying that this act of Congress “conflicts with established executive branch procedures”. I’m sorry, who was it that was trying to create law by executive order, regarding border issues? Who is conflicting with whose established branch procedures?

The Forefathers were pretty smart fellas, doncha think?
