Over the last 50 years there were 11,000,000 people streaming into each these countries in search of such things as the Zambian Dream, the Slovenian Dream, The Latvian Dream, the French Dream, the Norwegian Dream. In fact, according to the latest news reports, The United States of America is the ONLY country to which people do not yearn to go for the opportunity to better themselves. It is the only country where there is not equality under the law. The United States of America is the only country where it is not illegal to take children as wives and sex slaves. It is the only country where no individual has any hope of rising above his station in life. That is because there is absolutely nothing special about The United States of America. Of all the countries of the world, The United States of America is the only one that has little or no draw. American Exceptionalism is a figment of the imagination. Yes, out of all of those 250 some-odd countries, The United States of America is the only one that is not a "melting pot." Why on earth would ANYONE want to live in or stay in The United States of America? Among the nations of the world, The United States of America is the least unique. If I were living in The United States of America, I would sure try to leave to go to one of those other countries to live. Wouldn't you?
The New York Times recently ran a headline: “Obama, Before a Military Audience, Vows to End across-the-board Cuts. President Obama stood at this desert base on Wednesday before nearly 3,000 Marines, sailors and their families — and a captive audience of two Republican adversaries from Congress — and vowed that he would fight to end across-the-board budget cuts that have shaken the military.”
The reason this is significant is that this is the very same president, President BO (the amateur president) who thought up the idea of a pending sequester. In fact, he insisted on a sequester for the very reason that it cut military spending more than any other budget item.
Does it not seem odd to you that someone would propose an agenda that would cut military spending and then turn around and promise the military that he would end the military spending cuts?
That does not seem odd to you?
You must be a liberal. Only a liberal, a water carrying liberal, would be unable to see the problem.
HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan is imposing a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America’s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory. unveiled the federal rule at the NAACP convention in July.
The policy is called, "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing." It will require HUD to gather data on segregation and discrimination in every single neighborhood and try to remedy it.
Why is the Federal government involved in this? Why are they promoting spying on our neighborhoods? Is there anything the Feds should not be involved in? If so, what?
So death of US people on foreign soil is phony?
So spying on citizens is phony?
So targeting groups for their political stance is phony?
So giving arms to drug dealers to use on US citizens is phony?
So...what is real?
I was born in Miami, Florida, the son of an Air Force officer, traveled the world, was saved at age 17, and have served the Lord since. That's me on the left and my lovely wife, Bonnie...the pretty one...on the right.

FOUR PRINCIPLES THAT DEFINE TRUE CONSERVATISM:
1. Respect for The Constitution
2. Respect for Life
3. The Smallest Possible Government
4. Individual Responsibility
This blog is about my philosophy of government, which is a very conservative philosophy.
You are not required to agree with me (although you would be better off if you did).
I am biased toward conservatism, and make no apologies for that.
Freedom means not being controlled by the government, that being the very reason we declared our independence from Great Britain.
Government's job is not to provide things for people, but to provide the opportunity for people to persue the things they want via the vehicles of freedom and responsibility.
