A Memorial Day Tribute



Remember, Memorial Day is not designed to recognize present day veterans, as much as they deserve recognition, Memorial Day is designed to remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice, their lives, so that we might remain a free people.

Fundamental Change

PBO (the amateur president) lashed out at FOX News for some imagined way they report news by seeking out the radical exception to the rule and reporting on it, instead of presenting the liberal side of an issue.



Historically, the job of the press has been to help expose government excesses, corruption and largess. In the past few decades, though, there has been a change in how government behavior gets reported.The Main Stream Press discovered that there is an abundance of perks for them if they do not hit too hard at liberal political leaders and hit very hard at conservative political leaders.

Media such as the New York Times, MSNBC, CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC and a host of left wing blogs have discovered that they gain certain access to celebrities and politicians if they go easy on their foibles and make them look really cool.

If any of the media ever put pressure on a politician to change his/her behavior, you can be certain that the politician is a conservative.

Now FOX News comes along and points out things that the other MSM will not point out, such as the far too many people who vote for politicians like PBO (the amateur president) because he has dangled "ObamaPhones" or any of a myriad of other carrots in front of them, and FOX gets castigated by the rest of MSM and the liberal president.

Is there a liberal who yearns for the day when the MSM actually recognized stories and reported on them factually?

Example? Hillary Clinton.

So, how many of the issues of her moral character, her lack of action, her lying and cheating, and her hypocrisy relating to women's pay do you read or watch in the MSM. Have you seen reported in any of the media mentioned in paragraph 3 above that she pays her female employees $.72 for every $1.00 she pays her male employees? Have you seen anything but ridicule from the significance of her lost and found Emails?

You just don't see the MSM actually doing their job any more. You get only one point of view in the dozens of op ed pieces. The only place you find opposite views is on FOX News, in conservative blogs and in the few conservative newspapers. You NEVER see opposing views by hosts of the weekend talking heads.

But just like he wants to fundamentally change the United States of America, PBO (the amateur president) wants to fundamentally change the "how the media reports."

The role of the media is to keep that from happening.

Bu they won't.

So What?

So now we hear that the Amtrak Northeast Regional Train 188 that derailed in Philadelphia was traveling at 106 MPH in a 50 MPH zone and that it might have been hit by some sort of projectile.

For the sake of discussion, let's assume it was hit in the windshield by a bullet or a rock. How would that affect the speed of the train? Whether or not it was hit, it was still going twice the speed it was supposed to go.

I smell something that is over-ripe.

Start Watching the Video at 3:39

Some things are just butt-stupid. Among the butt-stupidest are politicians.

For the sake of honesty, let's ignore that this is a report from the liberally hated FOX news channel, and just focus on the facts at hand.

At the time of this writing, the NTSB has reported that the Amtrak Northeast Regional Train 188 that derailed in Philadelphia was traveling at 106 MPH in a 50 MPH zone. For those of you educated in government schools, that's twice (2 times...2 X) the speed the curve was designed to handle.

Politicians have already begun blaming "lack of funding for infrastructure" and thereby making some kind of imagined case for more funding; i.e.: more taxes.


Here is that FOX report. The salient section begins at 3:39 into the video.




The trained derailed due to human error, not lack of infrastructure. Why does every disaster that ever occurs lead to higher taxes, or at least higher spending, when the direct cause for many is human error (or more correctly: human disregard for the rules of safety)?

What will liberals do to blame this tragedy on George Bush? Wait! The lack of infrastructure is Bush's fault!

But infrastructure had nothing to do with this accident!

No matter. It was still Bush's fault. Don't you get it? Everything bad always has been, is now, and always will be Bush's fault.

You stupid, inept, mindless liberals.

Funny and Poigniant

Peoples' skin (White, Black, Red, Yellow, etc.) has gotten so thin that our very language is becoming unusable.

Stop it! Get over it! Nobody thinks any more or less of you as a person, regardless of your skin color or ethnic origin, because of a football team's name!

What is wrong with you? Get an ever-lovin'-blue-eyed life!

Time to Weigh In

Do you remember back in 1987 when that offensive picture of the crucifix was put on display? It depicted a small plastic crucifix submerged in a glass of the “artist” Andres Serrano's urine. It was all part of an exhibit sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts, a government agency that offers support and funding for artistic projects, without controlling content.

Do you also remember the attacks and killings by Christians that followed? Do you remember the gun shots ringing out? Do you remember the police firing on the Christian attackers?

WOW! It was almost like Sunday night’s shooting in Garland, Texas. The cartoon drawings of Muhammad at a “Draw Muhammad” contest were offensive to Muslims.

And do you remember all of the other offenses committed against Christians and the violent response from Christians?

Following the Christian lead, shooters attacked the “Draw Muhammad” contest in Garland. One of the suspected shooters was in contact with an Islamic State recruiter who seemingly urged him to take action against organizers of the controversial event.

Two men in body armor, toting assault rifles and showing every willingness to open fire now and count their victims later staged the attack. A security officer -- a traffic officer by day -- with a pistol shot and killed both attackers. He prevented what could have been another tragedy.
OH WAIT! I JUST REALIZED SOMETHING! NOBODY IN THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY ATTACKED AND/OR KILLED ANYONE IN RESPONSE TO THE OFFENSIVE PICTURE OF THE CRUCIFIX IN URINE!
Could there be a difference in how Christians respond to offenses as compared to the way Muslims respond?

Rosa vs Baltimore


There's not a liberal in the country who knows and/or encourages the difference. They might say that they do, but their actions speak louder than their words.

Betcha Didn't Know This

Most Americans think they know the history of slavery because it has been an abhorrent part of the American narrative taught in schools, portrayed in Hollywood, and mentioned frequently in the media.
But here is something you probably didn’t know: The first recorded American slave owner was a black man.
Anthony Johnson came to colonial America in the 1600s. He worked as an indentured servant to a tobacco farmer in Virginia. In colonial times servants typically worked under a contract of up to seven years to pay off their passage, room and board, and then their “freedom dues” — materials they would need to start life as a free person.
They were then released after the contract expired, with many of the former servants receiving land and equipment. This was the case for Anthony Johnson, who came to America under the name Antonio from Angola.
After his contract expired, he eventually received 250 acres of land. He then started a farm and enlisted the servitude of four white men and one black, who was said to be his son Richard Johnson.
While these contracts did not make one a slave, the case of John Casor — a black servant Johnson later acquired — would set a precedent and change that minor detail forever.
John Casor was working for Anthony Johnson on an indentured contract when he began seeking help from outsiders, claiming that his contract had well expired but Johnson refused to release him.
A neighbor, Robert Parker, brought a civil case against Johnson, demanding Casor be released. Parker intended to help Casor find another indenture contract.
The courts initially ruled in favor of Parker and demanded that Casor be released. Johnson did so, but after stewing in his defeat, he appealed.
On March 8, 1655, the court of Northampton County upheld Johnson’s right to hold Casor as a slave, stating in it’s ruling:
“This daye Anthony Johnson negro made his complaint to the court against mr. Robert Parker and declared that hee deteyneth his servant John Casor negro under the pretence that said negro was a free man. The court seriously consideringe and maturely weighing the premisses, doe fynde that the saide Mr. Robert Parker most unjustly keepeth the said Negro from Anthony Johnson his master … It is therefore the Judgement of the Court and ordered That the said John Casor Negro forthwith returne unto the service of the said master Anthony Johnson, And that Mr. Robert Parker make payment of all charges in the suit.”
 This case marked the first time anyone who had not committed a crime was held as a slave for life, thus making Anthony Johnson one of the first, if not the most notorious, slave owners (H/T Gateway Pundit).

The problem with slavery is not an issue of race, but an issue of the human condition. Greed and cowardice, not skin color, made Anthony Johnson and countless other slave owners commit such treacherous acts against humanity.  Similarly, the black slaves brought to the colonies were sold to the America-bound slave ships by blacks in Africa.
More schools should teach the full story about slavery, including that of Anthony Johnson.  But as long as schools and writers of history books are held hostage by liberals in academia with their victimization agenda, we know that will never happen.
(Taken from HERE)
So here are the points I'd like to make:
The actual truth is often far different from what we might expect given the way we are taught things and the distortions afforded by those with a particular agenda.
The further away from an event in history we get, the more difficult it is to get history right. People, even "educated" people, tend to interpret history to fit their agenda.
It behooves us, therefore, to avail ourselves of documents written as close to the actual event in history. We are more likely to get it right by realizing that those who lived at the time knew more about an event than we can today. This truth has many implications and applications.

The Delicate Balance

“It’s a very delicate balancing act, because while we tried to make sure they were protected from the cars and the other things that were going on, we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well. And we work very hard to keep that balance and to put ourselves in the best position to deescalate, and that’s what you saw,” said Mayor Rawlings-Blake.

She's going to protect them from the cars and other things? What does that even mean?

Oh, wait, "...we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well."???

So if you do something I don't like, I should have "space" to go out and destroy other peoples' property? 

So that you don't cry, "Out of context!" here she is:




What is this "delicate balance" she's talking about. There should be a balance between free speech and destruction?

Once again we see the logic of the Democrat/liberal mind set at work.

That statement is beyond outrageous.

A Clear Statement about Racism



So, America. When will you ever learn?  Whether you are a part of the Black community, Caucasian, Asian or whatever, you need to learn this lesson if the USA is going to overcome the racial divide.
