Is the term (the Power of Whiteness) racist?

In a recent posting or article this person tries to make a case that racism plays a part in the Boston bombings of some kind? But when we allow ourselves to only see people as small groups, or paint people into them, we become separated from being an effective tool to enact change in our surroundings. Let’s not confuse ourselves with facts of history, that racism did exist, still exists to some extent, but society has indeed made great strides in changing it. Not to recognize this, is to be somewhat closed-minded. Changing people doesn’t happen at a snap of ones fingers. It is also just as closed-minded to want more change to take place, when everyone on all sides have allowed themselves to act in a way that could be seen by the other group as being a kind of watered down racism. Anyone who makes judgments based on colors of individuals is not making judgments based on the content of character. So to Tim Wise article, this is what he wrote…

Terrorism and Privilege:

Understanding

the Power of Whiteness

By Tim Wise

 As the nation weeps for the victims of the horrific bombing in Boston yesterday, one searches for lessons amid the carnage, and finds few. That violence is unacceptable stands out as one, sure. That hatred — for humanity, for life, or whatever else might have animated the bomber or bombers — is never the source of constructive human action seems like a reasonably close second.

But I dare say there is more; a much less obvious and far more uncomfortable lesson, which many are loathe to learn, but which an event such as this makes readily apparent, and which we must acknowledge, no matter how painful.

He goes on to say. “It is a lesson about race, about whiteness, and specifically, about white privilege.”

1)     Does this sound like a person that sees people, all people in the same way, free from the view of color and from the judgments thereof? Where is the open-mindedness to allow  self to judge the content of character when people have been per-boxed into colored groups? He goes on to point out a list of white criminals to make some point that radical white    people have done evil things in the name of some flawed ideology.

White privilege is knowing that if the bomber turns out to be white, he or she will be viewed as an exception to an otherwise non-white rule, an aberration, an anomaly, and that he or she will be able to join the ranks of Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols and Ted Kaczynski and Eric Rudolph and Joe Stack and George Metesky and Byron De La Beckwith and Bobby Frank Cherry and Thomas Blanton and Herman Frank Cash and Robert Chambliss and James von Brunn and Robert Mathews and David Lane and Michael F. Griffin and Paul Hill and John Salvi and James Kopp and Luke Helder and James David Adkisson and Scott Roeder and Shelley Shannon and Dennis Mahon and Wade Michael Page and Byron Williams and Kevin Harpham and William Krar and Judith Bruey and Edward Feltus and Raymond Kirk Dillard and Adam Lynn Cunningham and Bonnell Hughes and Randall Garrett Cole and James Ray McElroy and Michael Gorbey and Daniel Cowart and Paul Schlesselman and Frederick Thomas and Paul Ross Evans and Matt Goldsby and Jimmy Simmons and Kathy Simmons and Kaye Wiggins and Patricia Hughes and Jeremy Dunahoe and David McMenemy and Bobby Joe Rogers and Francis Grady and Demetrius Van Crocker and Floyd Raymond Looker and Derek Mathew Shrout, among the pantheon of white people who engage in (or have plotted) politically motivated violence meant to terrorize and kill, but whose actions result in the assumption of absolutely nothing about white people generally, or white Christians in particular.

2)     The writer’s own point of view must see these white people on this list as hiding among conservative, Christian political groups that have tended towards public displays of violence or terror.  But was this a jaded view, a political over sight to have left out all of the violence of people of the liberal left mind-set? Making a list of violent people doesn’t prove a theory. It proves that you have taken the time to make a colored list of violent people but nothing less. But I also see there is at least one left leaning liberal democrat of white fame. A self-professed American unapologetic bomber, a member of the weatherman underground, a person responsible of the same acts of violence to create terror in the minds of people and a killer of innocent people as well–Bill Ayers. A man who on 9-11 said, “he wasn’t sorry for his part in the bombings.” OH to mention in passing… He is also just a friend of the current president of the United States of America. Just a fact, nothing less.

He goes on to say…

And white privilege is being able to know nothing about the crimes committed by most of the terrorists listed above — indeed, never to have so much as heard most of their names — let alone to make assumptions about the role that their racial or ethnic identity may have played in their crimes.

In short, white privilege is the thing that allows you (if you’re white) — and me — to view tragic events like this as merely horrific, and from the perspective of pure and innocent victims, rather than having to wonder, and to look over one’s shoulder, and to ask even if only in hushed tones, whether those we pass on the street might think that somehow we were involved.

3)     I have never known anyone like this as he describes with these kinds of attitudes towards others. But that isn’t saying that this doesn’t exist. I stand by what I have tried to point out already. If we don’t change ourselves with the way we see people, using common sense, and critical thinking, then the whole of society continues to slowly decay farther into becoming divided by race, racism, and the division of colors. When we all can recognize evil does exist in the hearts, minds, and soils of every person no matter the color of organ; then at that time we can be better guardians of our own reputations, better teachers to our youth, have a greater sense of responsible that our personal individual actions will impact what comes after us in the world we leave behind.

The fact is we are in a war of education, not open uncontrolled actions! If the terms of blackness or whiteness can be taken as to color specific or even racist/ Why do we allow ourselves to use them publicly or privately? We all are educators or teachers to our youth.  If we continue to promote mind-sets (even behind closed doors) like the ones in this article, then the best we can expect out of society is more of a managed decay. The only question then is—who is going to manage with any success when values individually compost away, with compromise. At some point we must except that racism only stops one person at a time. The hard part is standing on principles, in the face of people with an angry mob mentality that also exists within elements of the different ethnical groups, that aren’t looking to be an equal… but superior.

An Obstructionist view to the good, the bad, and the ugly, and modern slaves.

From Examiner

On Wednesday 12/13/2012, singer Harry Belafonte offered some friendly advice for Barack Obama while speaking with MSNBC’s Al Sharpton. In his view, the president should rule like a third world dictator and throw the GOP in jail for opposing him.

“That there should be this lingering infestation of really corrupt people who sit trying to dismantle the wishes of the people, the mandate that has been given to Barack Obama, and I don’t know what more they want. The only thing left for Barack Obama to do is to work like a third world dictator and just put all these guys in jail,” he said.

Mr. Belafonte must have never hear of limited and separation of powers and a limited government? A representation by the people who voted for their representatives in government. The left loves to say. “Elections have consequences.” Until they have to live with the consequences of any elections they disagree with.

I suppose the left has forgotten that in 2010 the people voted overwhelmingly to control spending, by limiting government, as why the GOP Tea party won overwhelmingly in the house of representatives. Now these same people are called “obstructionists” by the liberal left. Liberals are forgetting facts of truth totally, offering complaints to them, by saying that elections have consequences, but refusing to see the election results in terms of people speaking to their political leaders, over that as being only a win or a loss in any election.

In America we don’t elect a dictatorship ( a winner take all, completely unopposed power, a situation in having to accept only the winners policies). We elect officials who hopefully have the ability’s to perswade people to see their points of view, and then voting on those points. Not to drag people, kicking and screaming, in excepting or invoke political policies of crisis, or manipulating people in selecting only from these solutions of more spending and borrowing. What is said to be those same failed solutions of uncontrolled government, that only seems to lead to an even more manipulative or uncomfortable life, within an identical crisis to the past.

“Nothing is accomplished in facing tomorrows responsibility’s, by refusing to act on todays responsibility’s.” unknown.

Doing the same things over and over expecting a different result is the definition of insanity.

To call your political opponents obstructionist because you dislike their politics, or at the very least, want them to compromise their principles, is just using a dictator’s vision,” In order to get along, you must go along.”

One man’s obstructionist is another man’s conservationist. Who would be working to protect against socialist dictators using command and control style governing as the only option. The left seem to be using crisis, or the creations of them, to increase the need for government to take power and liberty from the people, thus killing the future needs to vote on issues. After all if you don’t support winners policies then you are an obstructionists to them, all because elections have consequences you know?

Using the terms of……. “Elections have consequences.” never seem to sink into the liberal mind, when they have to deal with a loss of an election. Funny that the left then also starts to use terms like “obstructionist” in describing someone who is doing their job, according to the people that voted these politicians into office. Liberals tend to overlook that there is more to an election year then who won the presidents office.

When that doesn’t work they seem to use stronger terms like Mr. Belafonte used, “Infestation”! So when Republicans or Tea-party people were elected to office, charged with doing the job as the people’s representatives, in stopping Obama’s reckless policies, they can now be considered to be an “infestation” in government. The descriptive nature of these words and others, describing your political rivals as being the problem, while hiding the true nature of the problem, is governing through fear. Because words have meanings the word choice is interesting, since one normally deals with an infestation by eliminating it. Can there really be any room for compromise, or honestly any bipartisanship, or a willingness, for these opposed powers in working together?

Republicans, or Tea party patriots, the faster you realize the facts, that the Democrats are out to eliminate you as a relevant political force, if not totally eliminate you, because you’re position and opposition to their brand of socialism designed for a total takeover, a total power grab through corruption of the election proses. The better you will be equipped with the power to recognize that you and you alone are the last conservationists of liberty, and freedom in America. If they look at you as an infestation, then you can’t ever compromise your principles in trying to co-govern with the enemies of liberty and freedom, who would deal with any infestation like a third world dictator by eliminating it.

The importance of the debt limit isn’t in limiting government from paying bills. But limiting government in increasing its size, and moving away from its importance of its spending as a driving force in the economy. Future growth borrowed from the bank of China, with the belief that our children will be all too happy to pay these bills, while receiving nothing in return for these payments. Is taxation without representation!

The borrower is a slave to the lender! Borrowing more and more to function as a society, as an economy, or as a government, is just sowing the seeds of our own destruction.

The function of any limit, is to give a warning to the danger of going past your limits, before you even get there, so you can avoid any and all negative consequences for going past them.

Constantly moving your limits, pretending they were always ment to be moved, all because of being ill-equipped to deal with the problem, doesn’t resolve or prevent any problems, nor is it a solution. It is a symptom of the addiction.

Democrats when faced with having to reduce spending on their favorite programs, the project devastation they present, along with some frightful out comes, or some kind of uncomfortable existences, as being inhumane, abusive and uncaring treatment, are the results of policies of the opposition party. Obscuring the facts of finance, that prosperity and wealthy, is never an accomplished goal by being asset poor and mountain of debt rich.

If Liberty is to become extinct it is because the conservationists (GOP conservatives) are not willing to do the hard work, the unpopular work of presenting the arguments in a persuasive way to the public. Only quietly going along, to get along, isn’t governing from the perspective in preserving the constitution for all from all foreign or domestic enemy’s. Compromise isn’t any tool used in making persuasive arguments, but is excepting a more comfortable defeat.

When was an unlimited debt ever the principles of our founding?

Government doesn’t produce anything, it taxes all economic production of the people, and then by definition is a growth inhibitor.

Politically speaking. We must recognize that every dime spent in payment to the interest on our debts, is a drag on future growth, future job creation, future security, future economical innovations, while increasing the size of todays obstacles into impossible ones, for future leaderships to deal with. We today are standing at the generational crossroads, deciding what kind of future our kids will have, or can expect. If we the adults in society or in government, are only interested in working for the extravagances of life, allowing ourselves only to enjoy freedom and liberty. Then we must honestly confess, too our own selfish greed, “That we don’t care about our youth”! What gives us the rights to sell, those freedoms and liberty’s, those God-given rights, that our kids should also be able to expect for themselves, with indifference to enslaving them to foreign banks, and treasonous governments, forcing them to pay for our extravagance of today? The borrower is a slave to the lender! How can we then enjoy our extravagances by selling “Our kids ” and their lives into slavery tomorrow?

Modern third world dictators always use the command and control style of governance in solving a self-made crisis while also reducing any powers that oppose it. The Democrat party, and prehaps some of the Republican party, must see themself’s as the slave masters of tomorrow? By wanting to eliminate all infestations / or opposition to their support of policies like, unlimited debt, and the slow erosion of liberty, their policies only seem to managed the decay, over finding true positive solutions.

When has a Democratic policy, a socialist solution, ever been purposed to the people resulted in a reversal of the social decline within society? Liberal policies have only added to a farther decline. Will the Modern Republican party embrace conservative principles, present them publicly and persuasively, or will they allow liberty’s extinction, by finely drowning it to death, with debt?

What are friends for in this parallel life’s journey within this social asylum. A kick in the…

After all what are friends for? A kick in the…? At lest they should posses and present honesty their advice. We shouldn’t expect anything else from them? A true friend would be using, brutal honesty and the power of a friends observations, to help a friend in trouble that they also love. We therefore should expect nothing but honest comments, observations, criticisms, advice, as they guide, support, and commiserate with us in our travels along our parallel life’s journey within this social asylum.

If we take a deep breath, and really listen to what is being said, and quietly taking some time to think… really think about what is being said, instead of angrily reacting emotionally. We may gain some wisdom.

A friend of a friend wrote some profound words, as their observations to what might as well be a doctors prognosis, a temperature reading of a sick social asylum, and the final analyses to what disease we are fighting. With all sicknesses or diseases, the medicine are usually bitter to taste. Prehaps this brave soul, this social MD’s words will help to bring about at the very least a recognition of the condition, as well the stage of the disease, and a willingness to take the bitter pill, over that of just excepting our demise? Surviving any sickness, or disease, requires a willingness to fight it!

At what point is a freedom fighter a social terrorist, an obstructionist, an infectious organism, to the progressive liberal mindset that sits in opposition to the concept of what America was founded upon? What happened to those same concepts of life liberty and the pursuits of happiness, or of individual freedom, and the responsibility’s that go along with it?  Why is it, in supporting these things we have been viewed politically as “Obstructionists” when we indeed are nothing but “Conversationist / Freedom Fighters” who would like to preserve America as founded? When did these values lose their luster, or social value, while getting replaced with socialism’s false guarantees? Socialism is birthing the utopia of the mesmerized, envious lazy minded individuals, through its religion of unrealistic pursuits, of equal out comes, and average existences, and misery for all. A managed decay is its only contributions to the world at its very best?

Why have we failed to recognize the failed policies of socialism as our politicians present them to us? When has socialistic utopias the world over ever supported themself’s? They have all needed to be rescued or bailed-out, by free market capitalism in order to continue to exist. For those who believe in the concepts of evolution ( where everything must adapt, and only the strongest will survive) why do we as a people support political failures, or the weakest of political parasitic organisms, where misery is their greatest contribution to their populations and to the world? Why then would we who live in the shadows of such great failures, and misery’s, volunteer to do the same, without much as giving any opposition to it?

There has been no greater waste of resources of human efforts, and charity. Then those misguided contributions, given as emotional gift of charity; in the hopes of helping people while supporting political leaders and their policies that have done nothing but take from the population. Destroying human dignity, human potential, the ability in improving themself’s, or talents, or even their lot in life.

Thanks Mark for passing along this friend of your statements.

The saddest, albeit possibly most accurate short message you will read that was  written by a USMC Vet. ( I can’t argue with any of it.  Passing it along as it was received. )
He wrote: The American Dream ended (on November 6th) in Ohio. The second term of Barack Obama will be the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled… and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind. A coalition of Blacks, Latinos, Feminists, Gays, Government Workers, Union Members,  Environmental Extremists, The Media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the “forever needy,” the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other “fellow travelers” have ended Norman Rockwell’s America. The Cocker Spaniel is off the front porch…the Pit Bull is in the back yard. The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and Chicago shyster, David Axelrod, along with international Socialist George Soros will be pulling the strings on their beige puppet to bring us Act 2 of the New World Order. Our side ran two candidates who couldn’t even win their own home states, and the circus fattster Chris Christie helped Obama over the top with a glowing “post Sandy” tribute that elevated the “Commander-in-Chief” to Mother Teresa status. People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will never again comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired. You will never again out vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take Zealots, not moderates–not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status. Those who come after us will have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to “white guilt” and political correctness….. I’m done.

Inaugural address 2013, the roadway to success.

We have come to embrace an atmosphere of political slogans, in an attempt to bridge a great divide of our own making. Healing a nation of its fiscal woes, requires more than the hollow empty building blocks of red-meat rhetoric, class division or the tactics of crisis management, in addition to bureaucratic bullying. There is no strength in the collective building of a house of cards mortgaged by excessive debt, firmly placed on the foundations of excessive spending and the economic limitations of farther increased taxation. The indifference of attitude in only paying the interest on that debt, without ever having a financial plan or a resolve, in making payments towards payment in full ending this debt, is not success! The use of re-imagined optics of rose-colored glasses, as the only political presentations to fresh new visions of this nation’s future, is nothing short of total blinding fantasy. An over use of political theater, an attitude of never let a crisis go to waste, has built a plethora of maligning, defaming, tarnishing, or even slandering the opposition to the charlatans mythology of political repair. The divisionist adventure over that roadway to success, that is just beyond that  bridge to nowhere.

In that failed attempt in bridging our divide through subservience compliance, these over inflated self-impressionists of political power, has also led us to sail the new winds of change, voiced through unrealistic demands of compromise. They demand, in order to get along you must go along! Efforts in erasing political values and principles which have given us our two-party systems as our form of government, accomplishes nothing but an unopposed abusive government. An effort to erect a redistributionist political rule, while also allowing their opposition to suffer the brainwashed public’s sting of frustration through yet another failed negotiation. This is what has been accepted as new and innovative leadership, visions of greatness through the managed decay of hope and change.

Leadership of hysterics, whose policies of solving one problem by guaranteeing the next crisis, isn’t leadership! But politics that is paving the way for an ever-growing government with a diminished values system of the smallest minority, the individual! This is that infamous slippery slope towards command and control loss of liberty.

The use of executive orders has become totally abusive of that power granted to the president’s office by the people of the United States. A grotesque methodology in by-passing congress, with nonchalance, hinting of mischief, by the highest office of the land. Our nation seems to be losing its grasp and understanding of the genius, of the separation and co-equal powers within our three branches of government.

We have today a totally greedy government that places no obstacles in its pathway to self-control. But have embraced corruption, in order to gain reelection.  With representations by our representatives, whose interests now days are in seeking out or locating, as well as creatively amplifying, distractions, in the hopes of manipulating the public mind-set? It is no surprise as a nation that we have loss the abilities of the use of debate, creative thinking, or the application of critical thinking in finding solutions to our present problems without recreating future problems of crises. It’s no surprise that we all have forgotten those famous words….” Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country!” JFK. Replacing these words with distortions of what are the federal government’s responsibilities, in relations to the state government responsibilities, even down to individual responsibilities. Government presents itself as the answer for all things, in exchange for these governmental answers; they erode liberty slowly like an acid drip.

We have clothed our self’s within a modern atmosphere of greed, for some individuals have exchanged uncertain outcomes in the pursuit of unlimited success, for instantaneous security while avoiding personal responsibility. Are we then exchanging our present day perceived security within an environment of greatly diminished future liberty; notwithstanding an increase of corruption in that day? Can the constitution and the freedoms that our founding fathers hoped to provide for all times as self-evident truths, withstand the growth, exponentially so, of the government without also greatly impacting what abilities we all have in our own pursuits of happiness, while enjoying our God-given rights? Can the state of corruption in this government also co-exist with the oath of office, to preserve and protect from all foreign and domestic enemy’s, those God-given rights; or will it seek to remove and replace those God-given rights with a Government who sees itself as a co-equal with God, seeking to dispense redefined rights?

Perhaps it is time to ponder Gorge Washington’s words… “Government is evil, but a necessary evil.”

No real surprise then why our wise founding fathers sought to create a government, of three branches of co-equal powers, in the hopes to control to the best of their ability’s, the human nature of evil within us all.  It is when we as a nation act with indifference to this knowledge, refusing to fight its effects within ourselves personally and only embrace this power for our own good. That history will have repeated itself. The only true light of liberty will have then been extinguished.

I hope the words of Ronald Reagan will never come true…..” Any nation in history that also has had liberty, and freedom only to have lost it, has never at any time regained it again.”

We are looking towards our leadership to lead by example; to present a persuasive argument of conservative limited government, making slow but calculated measured moves, for what is truly in the nations best interest. As being far better than doing the un-necessary three times fast, hurdling from one crisis to the next crisis, sowing the seeds of destruction through the policies of uncontrolled tax and spend, as the best leadership possible within a managed decay?

Crying over spilled milk.

Welcome to 2013, happy new year!!

Have you heard yet that if the government doesn’t pass the Farm bill that was set to expire on 9-30-2012 we could have five to six-dollar per gallon milk prices next year? It would mean that the government would have to use federal price supports which would revert back to the 1949 prices of certain commodities. Milk being one of such commodities. Why?

For an overly simplistic way to put it… portions of the farm-bill is nothing but an insurance to farmers in being able to have stable prices to their commodities, in case of loss due to natural disasters and drought, as well as in lower price periods of times.

But then some would ask if the federal government should be involved in market manipulations. Every time the government gets involved in the free markets for whatever reasons the markets act in an unnatural way. I’m sure you have heard of the boom to bust economic cycles? These occur when markets are manipulated no matter who induces the manipulations government or privet forces involved in the markets.

Providing stable prices is one thing, but manipulating the markets in going back in time, when the work on the farms were less automated and therefore more labor intensive is plan crazy. automatons of all businesses have also brought lower pricing to the consumers of such products. When accounting for the state of the modern farm and its present automated form of farming and the impact on markets. Shouldn’t we also be considering food stamps, price floors, and subsidized insurance, isn’t there something for everyone. Instead of complaining that the line of Americans waiting for a hand out from the government grows ever longer, why don’t we acknowledge the role that government plays in controlling markets? What once were free-markets, is now controlled and subsidized, and manipulated with policies designed to creating fantasy market prices and false supply and demand. Once we get past that concept, we can find ways to make government more efficient. Rather then accepting a government manipulated free market systems that relies on government spending as one of its largest portions of the economy as a whole.

Of course, there is no ability to make necessary changes and find real solutions when the children are simply yelling back and forth and having temper tantrums without finding any real solutions; giving the impression of just working hard enough to look like they’re doing their jobs instead of failing to do their jobs. Second, if government can set subsidized pricing to the 1949 levels, then we could rewrite the farm-bill to account for the modernization to the way we farm and reflect new and fair price levels for the purposes of setting up insurances designed for the fair price and the production of a stable food supply.

The current price supports are as follows below:

federal price supports. Those prices, the rates at which the government pays for certain commodities, would revert back to 1949 levels. For the most part, those were much higher, especially in areas like wheat ($13.58 per bushel in 1949, more like $6 today) and dairy products ($38.63 per hundredweight in 1949, closer to $10 today). The government would pay much more for those commodities, though not all of them; federal price supports for things like soybeans didn’t exist in 1949. This will absolutely drive up the price that businesses will have to pay for the same commodities, and that will factor into your monthly food bill.

Via @nprnews: So What Happens If The Farm Bill Expires? Not Much, Right Away http://n.pr/U9vxy5

The 2008 farm bill, which provides funding for a variety of nutrition programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly food stamps), as well as payments to farmers and agricultural programs, will technically expire Sept. 30.

So what does it mean if Congress just leaves it on the table? In theory, some fairly scary things. For example, in the absence of either a new bill or an extension of the 2008 law, federal price supports revert to their 1949 levels.

Some farmers would be big winners — the government would pay huge bonuses for wheat, for example — while some farmers would get nothing at all. That’s because some commodities, including soybeans, were added to the list of those supported by government after 1949.

“At that point, we’ll have $38 milk,” Rep. Collin Peterson, D-Minn., told a rally at the Capitol last week. “So what do you dairy farmers think about that?” (That $38 refers to the price per 100 pound weight — the wholesale pricing unit. Basically, it works out to nearly four times what dairy farmers are guaranteed now.)

What it comes down to is the price and the markets are being manipulated by a pricing structure that is out dated and out of touch with present day conditions of government interventions. Pricing disasters for the consumer at the grocery store level has all been baked into the equation. Milk could go to that five to six-dollar range; this will affect everything made with milk or milk products as an additive in it.

Remember this crisis is nothing but a government created one by market manipulation and therefore the government is manipulating you the consumer with price of a commodity as well as through the traditional taxation of your income. But that sort of thing always happens when the citizenry cries over spilled milk and expects government to ease the pain. Somehow we misunderstand that government makes the rules, yet when it comes to these disasters or modern crisis’s, it was something beyond their control, or beyond their abilities to see past their bad policy’s. Unintended consequences seem to just happen like an occasional eruption of a volcano, instead of recognizing the problem with those Politian’s who make bad policies without the abilities of critical thinking, asking what could happen if we do this?

Yet somehow the public for the most part falls for the lies, false perceptions, that all Politian’s give out like candy at Halloween. Their job is to manipulate people while give them the perception of being free.

It is truly amazing how much freedom we are willing to give up for the fantasy that the government can control all of the uncertainty in an uncertain world. If you think this is reasonable then why do we have cloudy and rainy days? Couldn’t, or shouldn’t the government just use its controlling powers to give out sunshine to everyone through equal redistribution of the weather? sounds unreasonable? But then we expect the government to guarantee price stability of products that rely heavily on the weather in coming to market. Net alone the money government spends to pay farmers not to grow crops in order to boost price or maintain prices at current levels. Where is true market controls of free-market supply and demand economic laws in play un molested?

Got milk?

Reap and run!

Reap and run!

Are you tired of successful people who say one thing and do another? Expecting special treatment from state and local governments, as well the federal government in order to gain favor for their businesses? Favors of special tax treatment, building zone changes, infrastructure, and changes to benefit their business at the expense of others who don’t share in the same governmental treatments or gained advantages? Seemingly because these smaller businesses aren’t as important to the community, or don’t represent as big of a taxing impact to these governments.

Jim Sinegal, Co-Founder and former CEO of COSTCO, said several things in his speech at the DNC (The Democratic National Convention). But then CEO’s and other Democratic business leadership and Politian’s are alike, with the same attitudes of other top notched and very rich business leaders of the republican party who often have a problem with saying what they mean, and mean what they are saying. Actions speak louder than words. MR. Sinegal seems to have this kind of lack of action in following his words. I happen to have met the man, and found him very likeable, straight forward, but like other people seem to use politics to gain an advantage for themselves. Jim Sinegal said at the DNC.

“But at our company, we recognize that job creation requires time and investment and commitment to the long-term. It requires companies that plant and grow, not executives who reap and run. We’re proud that Costco pays the highest wages among our peers, that we provide benefit and health care plans that are second to none, that we’ve grown our business by promoting from within. So we’re not just giving Costco people jobs, we’re empowering them to build careers and support middle-class families.

At Costco, we know a thing or two about what it takes for businesses to succeed, for a company to do well by its shareholders and to do right by its employees at the same time. We don’t want one set of rules for ourselves and another for our employees.”

Mr. Sinegal doesn’t want to set one set of rules for himself or others like him in his position, while having another set of rules for his employees, or so he said. But then his actions lead me to believe otherwise. Much like the two different rules for Obama care as directed differently towards government officials, as opposed to everyone else. The rulers get what they want to have with little to no cost associated to their own pocketbooks and no red tape. But for the peasants of the land they have to pay higher taxes and likely get lesser quality care in the long run with an unbelievable amount of red tape.

Where the rich can buy the best care that their money can buy, limited only by the size of their bank accounts. Even with their ability to invest and profit from those investments, the rich have an advantage that are in fact different over other people’s ability’s to take advantage for themselves the rules of society. The rich have the ear of government!

I’ll explain: Mr. Sinegal and his wife control about 2 million shares of Costco stock. He pushed the Democratic agenda at the DNC for bigger government, a fairer playing field, and higher taxation of the rich implemented by government policies and then these new taxes spent by government. All explained in an emotional manipulative way. Because of the fiscal cliff created by government, and by going off of it, would certainly raise taxes on everyone rich and poor alike. Mr. Sinegal made moves in order to save himself about 4 million in taxes. All because COSTCO will pay a one-time $7.00 per share special dividend to its shareholders before the end of the year 2012. He doesn’t need the money, and he made a case for the ending our society’s two sets of rules — the ones for the rich and the ones for everyone else.

Mr. Sinegal If you conscience bother you so much about the government having more and more taxes to spend. Why don’t you feel the need out of fairness to pay your fair share of tax? Why do you take unfair advantage of word usage and definitions and apply your own definitions to your actions in acting appropriately with what you say? Avoiding paying taxes or taking advantage of IRS rules, or new taxes about to be implemented is hypocritical. After all you said. “We don’t want one set of rules for ourselves and another for our employees.”

Mr. Buffet was once asked on the CNBC TV. Business show. Do you feel guilty for taking advantage of the IRS tax code in reducing your tax burden? Buffet answered. “NO! The tax code is to tell you as well show you the least amount of tax to be paid by anyone. Don’t hate the player, hate the completed tax code.”

Why is it only Democrats feel the need to complicate things to a point of muddying the waters so no one can see what they are really doing under the surface? Taking personal advantage of the tax code while keeping it complicated, lobbying government to raise taxes on the rich as the answer to all problems. Taxes that rich will never pay because they have for the most part unearned income, taxed differently from earned income. This is nothing short of the same thing as peeing in the pool and pointing fingers at someone else as being the one who is peeing in the pool.

Why is it necessary for the democrats to be compelled into pay taxes, all the while they’re looking for the loopholes to avoid them, and pointing to the GOP as being the party of the greedy rich?

Why do we define being GREEDY as wanting to hold onto what you worked so hard for, and not greedy to want to take it from you by force of government to give to those who made less of an effort in getting what they have. Applying the false standard of governments who act like this as defined as being “charitable”, is muddying the waters of verbal definitions.

(Just a side note. Because the word “Charitable” is also a description, of a somewhat religious term that supports positive attitudes towards life by people’s action and interactions with each other. Recognizing all the while governments don’t have money until they have taken it by forced through taxation of the people. To then call the spending of that money as being charitable, is no different from calling a thief a community charitable fund-raiser.)

A state of fairness in life will only be accomplished when all that can be guaranteed is the same, given to all in the same amounts of equality. Equal amounts of time to live, the same income despite different talents, the same intellect and wisdom, and the same health no matter what we do within our lives to destroy it in the first place. None of these things will ever be legislated by government official, or policies, or purchased by a tax and spend abusive governments of thieves. At some point personal responsibility’s must be assumed in excepting having to protect what you have, because life isn’t fair. So the utopia of fairness is just a Democratic fantasy.

In the words of an old rock-n-roll song by Kansas. “No amount of your money will another minute buy…. all your are is dust in the wind” for nothing is fair in life and no amount of government will ever change it.

Those who would like to reap and run are the ones among us, who have the most to gain in the shortest amount of time with the least amount of efforts. Blinded through selfish greed to do whatever it takes to preserve it for themselves while pointing towards others as if they are the greedy people who need to act in a charitable way. It seem that Mr. Sinegal’s only interest is getting others to do the work of charity that is compelled through the long arm of the governments increasing abusive power of taxation. While he preserves for himself a kings style existence, quieting his conscience for his greedy style of reap and run retirement. Mr. Sinegal you should be ashamed of yourself!

America’s miracle; A leap of giants?

Deciding the history that we leave behind.

Each generation has placed it self on the shoulders of the past generation to produce an increasing uplifting existence, by extending knowledge, prosperity, as a benefit to all. To day we seem to be producing a generation incapable of supporting another generation on their shoulders, net alone their own heads. Living only for the moment, to the extent of what makes us feel good, enjoying a fantasy existence of avoiding reality. Living life in the fast lane. Doctor, doctor think I’m going to crash. Doctor says you got to pay in cash. Life in the fast lane. Remember the rock-n-roll band the Eagles, their song that went like that? Are we just now as a nation coming to that point. Where our credit is worthless and we will need to pay in cash?

“It appears to me… little short of a miracle that the delegates from so many different states ( which states … are so different from each other in their manners, circumstances, and prejudices) should unite in forming a system of national government so little liable to well-founded objections.” George Washington.

Today we have become a nation based on a society of rule by man. The Constitution, once held in high esteem, is now often ignored, changed to meet the opinion of a judge, or considered outdated. Whereas our founders revered it and considered it to be a document written for the ages.

” The choice before us is plain, Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration. I am rather tired of hearing about our rights and privileges as american citizens. The time is come, it now is, when we ought to hear about the duties and responsibilities of our citizenship.” Peter Marshall, The rebirth of America, page 205

I believe that earlier generations in America made mistakes, but nothing short of the kind this generations almost treasons betrayal of the abandonment of the virtues and values from our politicians, and their support of dishonest presentations of policy’s leading to immoral teachings of our present day churches. Who promote the same lazy attitudes towards letting government slowly erode the moral fiber. In other words, we have all to some degree, become responsible for the mismanagement of the gift, ( given to us in the form of freedom ) and exchanged it with the slippery slope of a managed decay.

This managed decay has all but blindfolded us into believing treacherous politicians, that would use anything to acquirer power, fortune, and fame, over you. In spite of the great blessings given in the form of deciding for ourself’s, our lives outcomes ( Freedom, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. from our founding)

There are some of our citizenry whom hate this nations form of government and its founding documents (which limits size, and power of the government) and preserves that power for the population. We have become therefore a divided citizenry. Those who hate this form of government, dedicated to destroying it, while still others indifferent, apathetic who could care less, interested only by materialistic things, or hedonistic attitudes of getting all for one and one for all.

” if a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” Thomas Jefferson, letter to Chas. Yancey, 1816

using history as our future guide, and trying to use when ever possible the thinking of our founding fathers, which has led us to great accomplishments over the past 200 + years.

” I believe foresight through hindsight conduces insight which we so badly need now.”Ronald M. Mann, Deputy Director Commission of the Bicentennial of the United States Constitution.

” I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience.” Patrick Henry

This election season has the population ( We the people ) deciding which direction to go with our government. To continue to celebrate the freedoms of our god given rights, or to replace them with the state sponsored gifts of rights they will alow us to live with. Of course allowing openings, all the while to change them as the government sees fit. There is no representation on earth of such a nation as ours, which has had success that rivals ours through freedom. All other nations who also claim to have freedom have copied ours, but only to the extent of having partial freedoms. Even our freedoms have been given away bit by bit, a slow erosion, and yet even though they’re smaller to the extent of that of our founding. We remain the nation of choice to go to, from all other human hell holes created by copies of socialism or freedom alike.

We still remain the light to the world, because we still present to the world, the greatest value of all. GOD GIVEN RIGHTS!

Are we to be willing to wither away from our role of being first on the scene of natural disasters, limiting our peace making abilities through a strong defence, eliminating for all intent discovery’s of new technology’s, innovations, inventiveness, to experience as well express unlimited human potential through hard work and the discoveries as well as promotion of our God-given talents. The unlimited potential of human worth, unrestricted, and yet totally defended and promoted. A government who presents a moral standing to the world, must then govern itself with that same moral insight. With out, it would just magnify the corruptions of a hypocrite.

Are we to give all of this away in exchange for an average existence at best through socialization. A form of government in all of its forms that has been tried in history and left wanting. A form of government that only leads to a shared misery for all, death through wars, and starvation? For it is socialism only gift for all humanity, given to the world, as presented as their evidence of success from the pages of history. A stark difference to that of what freedom has presented.

“Governments in general, have been the result of force, of fraud, and accident. After six thousand years has elapsed since its creation, the UNITED STATES exhibit to the world the first instance, as far we can learn, of a nation, unattacked by external force, unconvulsed by domestic insurrection, assembling voluntarily, deliberating fully, and deciding calmly concerning that system of government under which they would wish that they and their posterity should live.” James Wilson

We have come to this point in decision this election year. At this point, are we to write our history in the great history books of time. Should we then exchange our God-given gift of self-determination, which has led us to experience, even thou we are imperfect people, great accomplishments. Being able to building on these accomplishments, placing ourself’s therefore on the shoulders of giants, all the while preparing ourself’s to support the next generations and their accomplishments. So that freedom shall continue going further in time.

“Freedom is never closer to extinction then one generation away.” Ronald Reagan

Or are we going to exchange this positive past history of accomplishment, for a future so brightly blinding. To except for ourselves and that of our children, through governmental socialization, and a persevered life of extended ease the way of uncontrolled debts, financing our adventuress journey into the future, by spending our children’s future, making slaves out of their working lives to pay for our enjoyments at the expense of any possibility’s to have the same.  All for a return trip in time, returning to the past historical facts of a socialists average existence of equal misery?
