Diversity

The New Year has finally arrived.  The new Congress is finally in session.  The shock of the Arizona madmen is finally starting to calm down.  What will these events bring; a fresh start with a chance at political reconciliation, a shift in big government ideology from the previous two years, or maybe a 180 from the seemingly indelible polarization that has fixated itself inside our way of life?  My guess is none of the above.  And even with Congress’ symbolic move to “sit together” during President Obama’s upcoming State of the Union address, I believe it’s all the same dog and pony show we’ve seen time and time again.  The reason being; our liberal media and liberal friends will continue to carry on with their crusade to transform America.

Over the weekend, trying to get away from Sunday news shows interviewing injured Arizona Congresswoman’s female friends, and the New England Patriots inexplicable loss to the New York Jets, a news stories caught my eye.  It outlines the train of political thought that I have been trying to explain for a few years now.

In the red corner, fighting out of New York City, by way of the House of Reps, then the MSNBC academy; Joe “Big Country” Scarborough.  And in the blue corner, fighting out of the Peach State; also by way of the House of Reps, and recently Fox News punditry; Newt “The Speaker” Gingrich. 

Now touch gloves, and come out fighting!!

Dicken Elementary School, Ann Arbor Michigan

Last week, elementary school principal Mike Madison took a group of students to see a rocket scientist. The problem is that he only allowed African American students to attend the trip. Madison wrote a letter home to parents to defend the field trip for black students only as part of his school’s efforts to close the achievement gap between white and black students.

Massive, Violent, Racist, TEA Party Protest

Massive, Violent, Racist, TEA Party Protest

On March 23, President Obama signed his Health Care Bill into law. A day later the news was wall to wall with coverage about the hate filled speech and threats against members of Congress. I know it has been a long year of debating health care but I was still left looking for answers on what was now actually law. I would have liked to hear more about the government taking over the student loan program or the Ready Reserve Corps. Why does that stuff have to be apart of Health Care Reform? (more…)

Following the jump, is the entire text left behind from Joe Stack explaining the reasoning behind his actions.  Before listening the inevitable spin by the media making this a case of a delusional Tea Party supporter, I thought it would be best to read what this domestic terrorist had to say.  While very long and ranty, his manifesto is oddly coherent.  Stack was obviously a sick man that rationalized his desperate actions by blaming an invisible third party for all that has ruined his life.  But he wasnt a stereotypical partisan man of any sort.  He hates capitalism, but he hates big government.  His one tea-party-esque theme is his displeasure that the system is rigged for the corporation while the individual is left out to fend for themselves.  I can’t imagine being so enraged to even consider such an act; but it’s interesting to see how a man could get to this tragic point.  Read for yourself and comment below…  (more…)

A bunch of gems over the past week for our general amusement.  First, Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Penn.) and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) appeared together on a Philly radio station last week for our entertainment. During the town hall meetings last year Specter left with a few gems of video clips. He’s back at it again telling Bachmann to act like a lady. Where is his mind? 1952…

This past weekend White House press secretary Robert Gibbs appeared on “Fox News Sunday”, he defended the decision to read alleged bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab his Miranda rights after just 50 minutes of interrogation. He claimed that valuable information was gathered by the experienced investigators. I will give him the benefit of the doubt and not argue the whole Miranda rights issue here. All I want to do is point out that the Director of National Intelligence, Dennis Blair was not even made aware of the decision. (more…)

There’s been a lot of discussion in politics revolving around redistribution of wealth and I can’t help but channel Francisco d’ Anconia from the popular 1950’s novel “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand. Every time I hear someone demonize wealth and prosperity I’m reminded of this speech.  If you haven’t read this book, it’s a must read, that is if you have the patience to read a 1100 page book.

Alfred Nobel

Alfred Nobel

Last Friday, the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded their Nobel Peace Prize to President Obama. Nearly everyone that I spoke to,  read from and listened to, agreed that this award was given prematurely. Much time and effort was spent over the weekend deducing whether or not folks agreed with this decision, or if they believed the once heralded Nobel Peace Prize Award has turned once and for all to be purely political. Throughout the discussions and Facebook polls questioning if he deserved the award, I wanted to take a quick look at the “accomplishments” the committee may have looked to in deciding to bestow the honor onto our president…
We first need to take a look at the Committee’s stated reasons why they believed President Obama was deserving of the award. (more…)

Gay MarriageThe elections from last Tuesday echoed a sentiment heard time and time again. PEOPLE DO NOT WANT GAY MARRIAGE. Maine became the latest of 31 states to vote for a ban on gay marriage. Typically a liberal stronghold, Maine joins other even more liberal states like California and Hawaii to by popular vote, reject the idea of changing the fundamental union of our civilization. If the country’s most liberal states cannot get these initiatives passed, where is this heated debate going? I have an idea where it should go. (more…)

Moral Clarity

Moral Clarity

Last week began an important meeting of the United Nations General Assembly in New York. In front of the entire world, heads of state were able to loquaciously discuss a broad range of topics including the world economy, climate change, and disarmament strategies. Many say these meetings are nothing better than an opportunity for any nation, no matter how small to grandstand and ramble in whatever direction they so choose. I believe these meetings serve a much greater purpose. Not only did President Obama explain in his own words what leftist ideology is, (more…)
