Occupy Wall Street vs. The Tea Party

Manhattan Tea Party

Anyone who has followed my blog for any length of time knows that I am a Tea Party girl. However, one cannot ignore this Occupy Wall Street movement that is the Left’s equivalent of the Tea Party. When the Tea Party first started growing the Left tried their inane beverage parties as if the people joining the movement were all enamored and obsessed with tea or something. You had the Coffee Party, there was a Beer Party and I am sure if  you looked hard enough you could’ve found a Diet Fanta party for anorexic Hispanics or some other such nonsense. 
         With the failure of those parties, they finally hit upon an idea-re-create Woodstock with its sex, drugs and non-existent bathing and boom the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) movement was born. OWS is basically Woodstock on speed. There is a vast difference between the two movements and it can best be summed up in this “photo” I recieved in my email:

 There is a reason the two parties cannot get along besides the whole  rape thing. The reason is because the two movements fundamentally disagree on how this country should be. The tea party thinks people should be responsible for creating and carrying out their own destiny. While the OWS group thinks government should be involved every time you take a breath.  While the government does a role in the lives of its citizens it is not supposed to be a nanny. The purpose of government is to protect its citizens and provide infrastructure to society in order that its citizens can then live their lives according to their own beliefs and ideals. So long as those ideals don’t cause undue harm to others.

The only thing these two movements have in common are that they are both grassroots based. Beyond that, the movements are like night and day. The Tea Party wants to reign in the government and hold them accountable for their actions. The OWS blames Wall Street for the woes the nation is facing while they are carrying around laptops,  IPODs and wearing FUBU. It is pretty clear they have no understanding of what they are fighting, whereas the Tea Party is very clear in what it wants to see take place. Ask anyone at a Tea Party about the Constitution and they will most likely whip out their own little pocket copy. People at a Tea Party have an understanding of what the Constitution and why it should be followed. The OWS crowd seems far less educated about their own cause. Which only makes them look foolish.

What is worse is the government is actually behind this movement. You have both Obama and Nancy Pelosi encouraging and supporting the protesters. Rule number one of a protest: Never have the government back your cause! No protester worth their salt would ever have the government endorse them! I know you OWS people dropped a lot of acid during Woodstock but even with your limited brain cells left you must at least remember that from your protest days!

In closing, all I can say is if it comes down to a showdown between the Tea Party and the OWS crowd  you better hope and pray the Tea Party wins or else you won’t have a country, job or freedom left.

The NAACP, The Tea Party and Me

As someone who attended the first Tea Party April 15, 2009 and has attended subsequent ones since then I find it infuriating the Tea Party is constantly being hurled with allegations of racism from people who have never been to one like the NAACP. I have never been insulted because of my color when I showed up at Tea Party rally. Do you think I would take my five year old son (now six) to an environment that would insult him and his mother’s heritage? Give me a break.

My son recently asked me, “Mommy when are we going to another rally?” This was after dragging him to every Tea Party, every End the Fed and every other conservative rally I could find for months on end.  Most of the time he didn’t want to go but I thought it was important for him to know we have to keep the government in check. We cannot let them get so out of control that they start taking away our liberties for “the good of all.” I often joked, he is going to grow up and go to every rally he can find and  protesting the government will become like breathing to him. Or he will hate rallies so much, he will sock you in the eye just for mentioning them. LOL. At least he will have something to talk about in therapy years from now, “Yeah my mother was always dragging me to one rally or another. It was like being a hippie but with morals.”

The NAACP has no idea what goes on at these rallies, so let me tell you what does. Unity-people are cordial to each other as we protest the overreaching government waste. Laughter-some of the signs I have seen have definitely given me a good laugh. People rarely scream (only when chanting slogans but other than that, no!) but laughter seems to fill the air. Brotherhood-there is a sense that we are all in this together and we need everyone to get us out of it. That without working as a team, things are not going to improve. Focus-while everyone comes from different backgrounds and different beliefs, the focus is on the fiscal responsibility of government and returning to the enumerated powers they have been given. The Constitution-you will often find people giving out pocket constitution. I got people w ho wanted to do my Constitution class online. The Constitution is the Guest of Honor at any Tea Party rally.

Are there racists in the Tea Party? Who knows, maybe but you couldn’t go by me because I have not run into a single one. I have not been made to feel unwelcomed at any Tea Party event. Everyone has always been friendly and I have been received with open arms. There has been a few comments like, “It is great to see a Black person here.” and if that is racism they really need to work harder on it. The only thing I can find “wrong” with that comment is that it focuses on me being Black instead of me being just another American wanting the best for my child and my country.

Have there been throngs of Blacks at the Tea Party rallies I have attended? No! But  that doesn’t mean there haven’t been any or that I was always the only one. There have been a few Blacks there whenever I went and if there is not more is because they have been duped by the liberal media thinking that even if they agreed with their cause they would not be welcomed. My poli sci teacher actually asked me if I was getting paid to attend these Tea Parties? Supposedly he was joking but it just goes to show how liberals think. That money is the driving force of everything and I couldn’t happen to believe in what they were saying unless I was getting paid for it. I believe in it because liberalism hasn’t produced one result in my life that ultimately enhanced it. I believe in conservatism because it has done more to motivate to change my circumstances than liberalism ever did. I believe in the cause of Tea Party because government in its best intention to help me has done more to keep down and impoverished than it has ever done to alleviate it.  I believe in the Tea Party because socialism hasn’t worked for me and I believe getting out of my way and allowing me to achieve my dream is what I and every person is entitled to.

So NAACP please shut up, you have no idea of what it is like for those of us who are Black and patriotic and attend the Tea Party.  You can’t have an idea because of your  hatred for America and everything it represents. Yes, America has not had a perfect history show me a nation that has, but America has done more to atone for  her sins than any other nation on Earth and continues to fight for liberty all around this globe and I resent you and your liberal buddies taking down my country. Now if you want to help it get back on its feet-more power to you. If you don’t, you need to get to steppin’  because your ignorance and vileness against Whites and the Tea Party will not be tolerated!

Paul McCartney: Internet Hurting Young Musicians

My Aunt, Dr. Ciwa Griffiths, Ph.D

Not everyone who ages becomes a dinosaur but some do.  My aunt, Ciwa Griffiths was in her 90’s and was as computer and internet savvy as the younger generation.  She had her faculties until the day that she died. I state this to illustrate that being out of step with the times has nothing to do with one’s age.  Paul McCartney is clearly out of step with the times.

AP Photo (Jacquelyn Martin)

In an interview with CNS News Paul McCartney is saying the internet hurting young musicians because of downloading, they are not getting paid for their work. (Yeah, because we know everyone got paid their royalties before the Internet…NOT!!! What was the problem then? I guess it was the typewriter’s fault for not automatically typing out the check!)

 To act like this is some new problem and that the internet has musicians everywhere starving is such a load of nonsense. If anything the internet helps young musicians get their songs out that they wouldn’t have had an opportunity to do before. They can grow their fan base on sites like Twitter, Facebook and MySpace.  They are able to produce their own music without the aid of a record company. It is not that the internet is hurting young musicians because young musicians have always known how to hustle. It is that the internet is hurting the record companies. Which is the real problem not the internet.

Paul is quoted by CNS News as saying: [the] Internet is “breaking down” the royalty system for young singers and has created a need for “a nice, fair system where whoever does something that’s really successful, should get paid for it.” He also said it is “unfair” for a person with a hit song who has a “young family” to support to not get paid royalties for his work.  

I agree, I think all people should get paid for their work.  And I think we have come up with a way. Ever hear of Itunes Paul? People pay a company 99 cents or whatever, download the music and then the artist can get paid that way through his record label. Now granted royalties are only 9 cents on a dollar anyway. But that 9 cents can add up.  This way the consumer is only paying for the songs they want without buying filler.

Next, I don’t know about you but I get hit up by young people selling me their cds on the streets all the time when I am up in Hollywood. They burn it on their computer, do the artwork themselves, label it and sell it-all of it 100% profit.  So say it cost 3 dollars to produce and they are selling it for between 5 and 10 dollars, they are getting more than the 9 cents royalty they would be entitled to under the law.  It makes more sense for them to do it themselves.

 Please stop pretending you care about the “young musicians” Paul when you, yourself admit to putting people out of work as songwriters when you and the Beatles were making music.

 “What used to happen before we came on the scene was people used to have writers,” said McCartney.  “So, someone like Elvis would have people writing his stuff for him, [Jerry] Leiber and [Mike] Stoller, people like that. We kind of upset the boat a little bit because we came along and we were writing our own stuff, so we put a lot of those guys out of work, which was okay for us, not so good for them.

 Obviously you weren’t looking out for their “young families” that were starving because you were writing your own music.  But hey it is okay for you to the buck the trend in your youth but it is not okay for the youth to do it today. The young people today are putting you out of work and that is what really is at the root of all this. It is not that the royalties are not being paid, because trust me these young musicians are getting paid! It is that they are not doing the “old-fashioned” way. They are doing it their way!

Tom McClintock’s Response to President Calderon

You tell them Tom McClintock! It is about time someone stood up to these Leftists who want to tear down America and told Mexico’s President exactly what he could with his “dialogue” about our laws. Dude, when we stop caring for your people, when we stop educating them, feeding them, housing them, providing them with medical care, when you start taking of your own then  maybe you won’t be such a joke and will be listened to! People are fleeing your country to come over here, don’t you dare sit there and tell us how to handle it once it crosses our borders! Especially many of YOUR criminals are victimizing OUR people! You have no right to stand here and debate American laws when you can’t even keep your own people in YOUR OWN country!  Tom McClintock was way nicer than I would have been President Calderon!

Stupid News From Britain

Okay, we all now when you are putting out a newspaper or producing a local news channel on television, you are going to have a slow news day now and again.  And then you have to go and start creating stories out of thin air.  “Local woman prefers Whopper over Big Mac, news at 11.”  But some things really take the cake.  Let’s look at a couple of stories that were published in Telegraph.co.uk online edition.

Women prefer feminine looking men over masculine men.

Let’s say this was true.  Is it true for the vast majority of women? Or just a select few?  Now here’s is the kicker. You know what they based this attraction on-health care! You have got to be kidding me!

Now researchers believe that improvements in health care in wealthy western countries mean women do not have to worry about so much about the quality of their offspring – and so are picking more feminine looking men.

They found a direct correlation between the quality of health care and the choice of male.

In countries with better health care, the more likely women would pick a feminine looking man and visa versa.

The result was that in Sweden, which had the best health care, most women (68 per cent) preferred feminine looking men.

Now did they look at the media in Sweden?  Did they look at who is promoted as “attractive” in Sweden. Did they look at the magazines, the television shows which has a far more profound effect on who we deem attractive than health care!? No, Sweden has better health care so of course that is the reason they chose feminine looking men.

The article goes on to say:

Dr DeBruine said: “We found that women in countries like Brazil, Argentina and Mexico where the health is poorer were more attracted to masculine looking faces than women in countries like Belgium and Sweden, which have lower mortality rates and higher longevity.”

Why-women-now-prefer-Johnny-Depp-to-Sean-Connery

Basically it is saying poor women have to settle for slack-jawed Neanderthal men because their lack of medical insurance makes it necessary!  What? You noticed they picked countries like Mexico, Argentina and Brazil where you find a more darker skinned people and Sweden where it is predominantly White.  They are bordering on scientific racism here because the underlying tone  is Swedish women  are somehow “better” than Mexican women.  However, I will give them the benefit of the doubt in this case, even if the whole thing is utterly ridiculous.

Never mind, Mexico is also far more traditional than Sweden and so they would prefer more masculine men because they view men and women in a more traditional sense. Sweden is far more liberal and so it would make sense they prefer the liberal-leaning fem guys.  But no, it is health care! Maybe that is why Obama is so set on getting health care passed. He is a fem-looking guy.  Maybe he promised all his fem guy friends-“Hey if I get health care passed, you can get all the ladies! Countries with universal health care have women who like sissy men! You’ll be set!”

Note to the scientists-you can’t group 18-40 year old women together like they are the same thing! What I liked at 18, I sure don’t like at forty and one of the things I liked at 18 that I despise now-fem guys!

And while we are talking men and women, here’s one for you.  A genderless person.  Britain really-put down the pipe and get off the crack!

Norrie May-Welby, 48, was born a man but had a sex change operation in 1990, at the age of 28.

After becoming unhappy as a woman, May-Welby decided to become a “neuter”. The 48-year-old is now officially recognised as a person of no specific gender.

Briton-is-recognised-as-worlds-first-officially-genderless-person.html

But wait, haven’t we been told if we just go around giving all these “transgender” people operations that they will all be happy from that point on and we are just being mean not ponying up thousands of dollars to pay for their operations, “medication” and other things. Well this person got the operation they weren’t happy. So now we are just supposed to address this person as what? It? Thing. At some point you are going to have to use a pronoun people!

May-Welby said: “The concepts of man or woman don’t fit me. The simplest solution is not to have any sex identification.”

The UK’s Gender Trust welcomed the case. A spokesman said: “Many people like the idea of being genderless.”

Okay well if many people like it let’s do it then. Many people thought lynching Black people was a good idea. Many people think rape is an excellent idea-Ted Bundy sure did. Many people like the idea of  skinning kittens.  If many people like, I am sure it is an excellent idea. Is it no wonder Britain is going down the toilet and the only sane person in the entire country seems to be Daniel Hannan? And I love how this person says it is the simplest solution.  Really? Simple-maybe for you but not for the rest of us.  But I forgot, it is all about you, May isn’t it? Just like it is all about each and every one of us and we don’t have to take other people into account. But I shouldn’t be too hard on May, this is obviously a very sick person. But I am mad at the government for celebrating  and validating this person’s sickness instead of trying to help them. It is gross negligence at its worst.

Doomed Democrats?

As the special election for Ted Kennedy is coming to a  close and as it looks like Republican Senator, Scott Brown is going to win, there is a sense of doom that is starting to permeate the Democratic leadership.  Democrats are the oldest political party and maybe that is part of the problem, they have outlived their usefulness.

Democrats have not been paying attention to what is going on in our nation.  When they won the Presidency, House and Senate in 2008, they thought they were sitting pretty and could do no wrong, what they didn’t count on was the growing discontent among many of the voters who intensely disliked Obama and everything he stood for and were far more crazy about Palin then they ever were about McCain. They figured the discontented rabble would just go away, instead we got stronger. Depsite the threats of Homeland Security that placed former vets and anti-abortion protesters as “enemy combatants” and despite the mocking of the Tea Parties by the media, we grew. Now here is only a year after Obama’s inaugration and the tide has vastly shifted.  And so the back-stabbing and finger pointing is already beginning and the election is not even over.

And in private conversations, Hill sources say White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel has blamed Coakley, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and Democratic pollster Celinda Lake for failing to see Brown’s surge in time to stop it.

“With the legislative and political stakes so high, it’s unbelievable that the Senate committee and White House let this race get so out of hand,” said one senior Washington Democrat. “There’s a lot of blame to go around. Martha Coakley is only one of the problems here.”

http://news.yahoo.com/s/politico/20100119/pl_politico/31637

As you can see the blame game is already starting and Obama is not immune from it. According to that same article, he is blamed for not selling the message more. However, as a failed telemarketer I can tell you, you cannot sell what people don’t want. And what the American people don’t want is more spending, more debt, more failed social policies, more Democratic rule.  Liberal policies have been an abysmal failure and to assume the people are going to continue to vote for the same unchecked failure is utterly insane.  Should Scott Brown win, he will hold significant power because his vote alone could stall many of the Democrats’ schemes.  The Democrats need 60 seats to blow through any legislation, with Scott in place they will be short one vote. That is as long as he continues to vote as a conservative and not some RINO pawn.

So stay tuned, this is sure to be an interesting ride and might mark the day when the Democratic party imploded and became part of our American past like the Federalists and the Whigs before them.  Though I wouldn’t count them out just yet,  but maybe this is a wake up call to the Democratic party that you are not as strong as you think and conservatives of any stripe or political affiliation are a force to be reckoned with.

Why The Left Hates Country Music

Gwen Thompkins-NPR Correspondent

Gwen Thompkins-NPR Correspondent

The Liberal Left of this country is full of pretentious, egotistical and elitist individuals who believe that anything without their stamp of approval is not worth much.  They continue to ridicule and mock traditional American values, the people who live in the Heartland and most of all, country music.

Country music has always been the brunt of jokes by so called mainstream America.  People like Gwen Thompkins, who did a report for NPR on the popularity of country music in Africa can’t help but mock anyone who listens to it. Even as she reporting on the immense popularity of country music in Kenya, most specifically, she couldn’t help but remark how most country singers are a bunch of racist rednecks.  Those weren’t her exact words but they are gist of her feelings.

So why all the hostility to country music especially as more and more Blacks are getting involved in it. We now have Charlie Pride, Cowboy Troy, Darius Rucker, and Rissi Palmer all making country music. And though Charlie hasn’t put out a new album in a while he still travels the world singing his music.  They are even thinking of doing a movie about his life. Even Nelly did a duet with Tim MacGraw and  Beyonce has even done some country as well.  With more Blacks making inroads to country, it seems counterproductive to keep labeling Nashville as racist. Besides that is not the real reason why the Left hates country anyway. After all, the Left is full of proud KKK type bigots. So what is it?

1. Country music is patriotic.

 Those who sing and listen to country music are overwhelmingly proud of their country. Being patriotic doesn’t mean we are blind to America’s problems but instead we view America through a more forgiving lens. We know we have committed atrocities on our soil-abortion is still being done to the most vulnerable and innocent and needs to stop-even so we are willing to fight to improve conditions for all. To stop living in the past and start taking care of the present and the future. They hate country music because it speaks of real love, family, tradition, God. It speaks of everything people hold dear.

2)  Because it is simple.

Don’t equate simple with stupid. It most certainly is not. It is some of the most profound music around but it is its simplicity in lyric and form that make it accessible to everyone  and the Left does not like that.  Even Alan Jackson openly admits to being ” a singer of simple songs, I’m not a real political man.  I watch CNN but I don’t think I could tell you the difference in Iraq and Iran.” It is that kind of straightforward humility that people can relate to. And it is that kind of down home feeling of  just being an average Joe, no better nor worse than anyone else, that the Left absolutely despises.

3)  It’s timeless.

Britney Spears will not live on  in immortality but Loretta Lynn will.  Coal Miner’s Daughter speaks more to our shared human experience than “Oops I Did It Again.” Almost any Trace Adkins song reminds us of  the fraility of family and how fast time does fly. Songs like “You’re Gonna Miss This.” or “Then They Do” speak to us as we watch our children grow up and leave the nest.  While Kanye West will one day be forgotten, Trace and his timeless message of loving your family will continue on.

4)  Because it is real.

If you don’t stand a little prouder when listening to “Riding with Private Malone” or “Bumper Sticker on my SUV” you have no heart. If you don’t cry when hearing “Christmas Shoes” then you are probably a pod person.  And Dolly’s new one “Jesus and Gravity” really uplifts your spirit. http://cnettv.cnet.com/dolly-parton-better-get-livin/9742-1_53-50003376.html  You don’t find that kind of music in the pop, rap or hip hop world.  You find it in two places, country and soul. Both genres are the last bastion of authentic music and true talented artists. Yes, the Left hates anything that is good, uplifting, touches your spirit, which is why I will always be a fan of country music

America’s Eulogy

Doctor pictureWhile I am by no means willing to give up on America! While “doctors” like me known as patriots continue to fight for the life of this nation, while we continue to try to infuse her with life saving blood known as sacrifice and liberty, while we search our “medical books” known as the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, there is still a chance she may die. There is a chance Lady Liberty won’t live to see another generation raised under her guiding light. So as a “doctor” I have to make that long, pitiful, sorrowful walk down to the waiting room, where the “family” known as Americans,  is waiting and tell them, “She might not make it people. You might want to get her affairs in order.”  Should America die this would be my eulogy.

America was actually born July 2, 1776 in Philadelphia, Pennyslyvania. Constitution imagesShe had many a father-George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and many a mother too-Betsy Ross, Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth and Harriet Tubman. Each of them helping to form her in younger years.  She came into this world, a bloody mess, others laying down their lives so she could live.  She was so highly prized that another “mother”- England- who is commonly known as the motherland, tried to keep her for herself.  However, England lost and had to relinquish custody of her beloved America.

Man_throwing_moneyAmerica grew up and became prosperous in her life.  People adored her. She accomplished much in the name of science, arts, industry and education. Her children known simply as Americans were the smartest, the wealthiest, the most productive and the most God fearing people on the planet.  One of her sons gave us the Bill of Rights-his name was Patrick Henry. One of her daughters would become an astronaut, her name is Mae Jamison. She bled and cried out for the freedom of her Black children and she won that! She believed what Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence that all men are created equal.  She was unrelenting, she wouldn’t give up until all her children were free.

LiberalsYet the more children she had, the more prosperous they became, the more they forgot their mother.  Then one day, it happened-a great evil befell her.  Liberalism invaded her body. Liberalism is insidious, it gets into the blood of its host and destroys it from the inside out. America didn’t even know how it caught this bug.  Liberalism used America’s love for freedom, truth and justice and corrupted it. Her courts refused to rule by constitutional standards and began politicizing all its decisions. Her Congress once of great moral fiber, began to deteriorate and become incompetent and corrupt.  Her Presidents who would never think of breaching the Constitution would do so before breakfast most days.

medicationsShe tried to fight off the liberalism, but they were strong and were not letting go. Even when given medicine-conservatism-it never lasted long enough to make a difference. Liberalism kept coming back.  It overtook her until every value she held was smashed. They all but eliminated religious liberty,  leaving  just enough churches open to make it seem like we had religious liberty when the truth is, it got muzzled by LBJ. Free speech turned into hate speech and every constitutional protection was whittled away. She watched in horror as her children fought for the right to kill her other children.  It was called abortion though in truth its name is genocide. She became anguished as perverse sexual practices were revered. She felt hopeless as she saw marriage being torn apart.  What was happening? She became confused and pretty soon she didn’t recognize herself at all.  Then on November 4, 2008 she was hit hard. The liberals had secured the Presidency and both Houses.  Even the courts were becoming more liberal.  With the election of Obama, Pelosi leading the House and Sotomayor being confirmed to the Court, the liberals had a tight stranglehold on her.  Though she was able to raise her level of conservatism, it was too late-she was dead.  America though once rich, would leave behind a trillion dollar deficit, illiteracy, government waste and the continued oppression of her people through “government aid” otherwise known as socialism.  She was a great lady, may she rest in peace.

Cali’s Garage Sale

Arnold Schwarzenegger[In her best announcer voice] Everything must go people! That’s right-one day, tons of sales! We are selling our jobs overseas, good education and pretty much our souls. So come one, come all-you are sure to get a heck of a deal!

While that may not be what they are really selling-at least on Craigslist or ebay-California is having a garage sale to generate funds for the state. Has it really come to this, are we really so bad off as the eighth largest economy in the world (not in America but in the world!) that we need to sell our dirty laundry on ebay. And I do mean dirty laundry-they are selling old prison uniforms. And who exactly is going to buy old prison uniforms anyway? Maybe an ex con who is all misty eyed about the good ol’ days in Folsom or San Quentin. San Quentin-Death Row-East BlockThey are selling cars, laptop computers, everything that they can get their hands on.  While it might be a clever idea and a way to eliminate some of the waste and clutter California has collected, [California must be the “Pack Rat State” because I, myself am a huge packrat, hate to throw anything away.  I also have many a friends with the same affliction. Maybe it is something in our water that makes us hold onto everything for dear life. ] it is not even going to make a dent in the deficit we have accumulated as well. At the present time, it is being projected we have a deficit of $26 billion.  http://bit.ly/2bYRK3

Cal WorthingtonObvious ly the Governator has run out of ideas.  He has become a joke of a governor and a business man. He has become of the Cal Worthington of statesmen. For the three of you who don’t live or who have never lived in Southern California, Cal Worthington is a used car salesman. He owns a  lot called Worthington Ford. He had television commercials about standing on his head to make you a deal and he had a “dog” Spot who was usually a monkey, elephant, lion or some other wild animal. Actually as a child, I loved his commercials they made me laugh and brought a smile to my face. He is still selling his cars today.  The difference between Cal Worthington and most politicians is that Cal Worthington would honestly give you a good deal.

The idea for the garage sale came from one of his Twitter followers (ah yes, the brilliance of Twitter!) 

After signing the order to reduce the state’s 40,000 government vehicles by 15 percent, Schwarzenegger posted a video message thanking his Twitter followers for their budget-balancing ideas, including one follower’s suggestion to autograph state-owned vehicles being put up for auction.

“You come up with the great ideas. Why not just sign the cars since you’re a celebrity governor? Sign the cars and sell it for more money,” the governor said in the video where he was seen sitting at his desk in the state Capitol admiring a 2-foot-long folding knife before addressing viewers. “That’s exactly what we’re going to do.” [Judy Lin, Associated Press Writer,  Friday, August 28, 2009]

Garage SaleFrom there it grew into a full-fledged “garage sale.”  And even if every citizen, illegal alien and unborn fetus showed up, gave the state all their money at which point I got about 5 bucks to get to school for the next 3 days, it wouldn’t end the deficit and it sure wouldn’t end the reckless spending that politicians have become famous for.

When did our government stop being about the governance of its people and turn into the annoyance of its people. With its constant striving to take over every area of our lives from industry, healthcare and education, we are left with very few liberties left. [Side note: A liberty by the way is what the government is supposed to stay out of,  a right is what the government is supposed to enforce. Of course, with liberties and rights, the two can intertwine and get sticky but that is the general take on the two.] It seems like such nonsense like this garage sale is not just limited to California. After all, Cash for Clunkers is basically the same thing-Congress going Worthington Ford on the nation!

One person referred to Cash for Clunkers as abortion for autos. Since after you turn in your vehicle they have to destroy it and cannot resell it. Yet here we are reselling SUVs and other vehicles that Cash for Clunkers is trying to destroy.  The whole thing is turning into some very bad game show and if it wasn’t our future on the line, I might have a good laugh at all this. It just shows how truly far we have fallen. As a state and as a nation.

P.S. Thank you liberals for all your inanely insipid ideas and turning this country into a vast wasteland! You have done a bang up job destroying America!

Tammy Bruce Joins ABCD!

The newest member of A Black Conservative Digest (ABCD) is none other than Tammy Bruce! When I went to check my new members  I was floored!  Tammy Bruce for the three people in the world who may not know her is a conservative talk show host and best selling author. She has written “A New American Revolution,” “The Death of Right and Wrong, ” and “The Thought Police.” 

Tammy is not your typical conservative. She,  in fact, is a former liberal. She was in the leadership of NOW and like every good liberal believed the world was out to get her, as demonstrated in this quote in an interview with John Hawkins, ” Imagine my shock when I realized through talk radio that the enemy wasn’t thinking day in and day out about me. And, most inexplicable, they didn’t hate me at all.”

I know that shock well.  I too felt it when I realized after 34 years that I was a Republican. Threw me for a loop, I had been fighting it years before that because I believed Republicans hated me. Only to find out the Dems who I thought were a friend to Black people were really the ones holding me back all along.  But only because I let them.  I take responsibility for my bonehead decisions.  However, part of those bonehead decisions were based on propaganda I believed and deliberate misinformation about certain behaviors.  But let’s get back to Tammy.

Tammy has gone on to be one of the biggest opponents of the Gay Elite in this country (that is actually her term) as demonstrated by this quote:  “In my book The Death of Right and Wrong I warn about the sexualization and targeting of children by the radical gay fringe. The announcement that a school in New York will open in September and be the first publicly run “gay high school” is a testament to that vile and loathsome agenda.   Do not be cowed with arguments that if you’re against this you’re a “homophobe.” In fact, the unforgivable crime is if we remain silent allowing children to be sacrificed on the altar of political correctness, as we sit and watch gay malignant narcissists make a wild grab for children. Well, it won’t be done in my name, and I contend that every decent hetero- and homosexual person out there should be equally outraged by this hideous action.”

Just another homophobe right? Not exactly, she is an openly gay woman.  Oh wait she must suffer from that internal homophobia.  No, she just has common sense something that is not highly regarded in the Gay Elite.  Tammy speaks the truth not because it is convenient for her or it suits her particular situation, she speaks it because it is the truth! I have a massive amount of respect for Tammy Bruce.

Tammy speaks with class and eloquence. She is truly an asset to the conservative movement and I am proud to have her on my site.  It is a testament to the conservative movement that two former liberals, one poor Black woman and one upper class White lesbian can both work together and put aside any of their differences to help better this country. It is also a testament of A Black Conservative Digest itself that all are welcome as long as they truly believe in the conservative ideals and want to put them into action.  That color, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, marital status, gender and nothing else stands in the way of one seeing the truth about the liberal disease that has affected our nation for far too long.

God bless Tammy and long live ABCD!

Oh My Goodness! I’m a Hippie!

aned3Some realizations are just more painful then others. This is one of those, I was joking at SGP that my son is going to grow up and tell people,  “Yeah all my family did growing up was protest the government.  It was like we were hippies but with morals.”  After that little realization hit me I sat down and wrote this piece. I hope it makes those wacky, Leftists who are calling us racists and threats to national security remember what it was like when it was their side being called that. And I hope it makes them stop, take a pause and for once in their life, actually do the right thing! Enjoy the reading!          ~Dena

As you think back on the sixties (at least from what I have been told gay-protestand read, I wasn’t there. LOL) and what described the “hippie” movement we are doing the same thing today but with a greater purpose-to restore God and country. But let’s look at some things we have in common with the hippies of yesterday.

lightbulb21) Pretty much started the homeschooling movement. Didn’t want their kids learning all that imperialistic garbage. You know things like how to bathe or the importance of having a job. And who homeschools today? Conservative Christians who don’t want their kids learning all that environmental garbage. You know things like light bulbs make the sun hotter or killing babies is good for Mother Earth.

2) Held protests about the government. Back then it was to get out us of adonai-and-generalViet Nam, make slaughtering the unborn legal and free STDs for everybody! Now with the Tea Party movement we have protests about the government, but this time it is to get us out of debt. To stem illegal immigration which is taking jobs from Americans and to uphold the law of the land, not to bend it, not to abolish it but to live by the Constitution and the principles it espouses.

trace-adkins3) Had their own music. From Jimi Hendrix to Bob Dylan, the music reflected what was going on with their anti-government scene. Nowadays it is country music that most reflects the conservative values in this country. Not every conservative listens to country music, but by and large the biggest fans of country music are conservatives. From Toby Keith to Trace Adkins, we revere the people who also revere our land.

dfd-family-pic24) Were counter-culture. The hippies were the counter-culture movement of their time. Working to bring about some of the most detrimental changes to our society. Espousing radical feminism which vilified husbands and children. Promoting dangerous alternative sexual identities and practices and becoming awash in hedonism. Now who is counter-culture? We are! As we work to bring God back to America, to allow women the opportunity to have children and stay home with them without feeling like a failure. We are working for the betterment of society by embracing traditional mores that lead us to greatness in the first place.  We are working to eliminate abortion but helping those with crisis pregnancies, solidifying marriage as between one man and one woman and not this anything goes mentality, making sure children have decent schools instead of the failing public schools we have today. These are the counter-culture’s objectives today.

5) Despised mainstream society and media so they built their own. microphoneWhether it was a pamphlet or a record company, the hippies of yesterday built their own media since they couldn’t depend on mainstream media to tell their side. Yet those hippie entrepreneurs of yesterday are now media moguls of today and today it is our side that cannot be told. It is the conservative movement that really has grabbed a hold of blogging online, Twitter and social networks like A Black Conservative Digest and others to get their stories out. The internet is fast catching up with the more traditional forms of communication (tv, radio, newspapers, etc) as where people turn to get their information. In 1994 only 2 percent of people got their news from the internet and by 2004 that figure had risen to 29 percent. Other forms of communication have dropped. In fact, television went from 72 percent to 60 percent during that same time (Trends, 2005, Washington DC: Pew Research Center, 2004, pp 42, 44-45) Conservatives absolutely despise how liberalism has become mainstream and doing what they can to stem the tide and bring society back into alignment with what is right and not just what “feels” right.

So there you have it! We are the new hippies. Maybe we need to come up with a new word. Instead of hippies we could be the chippies! Nah, let’s just stick with the Right, because after all, we are! But isn’t if funny the same things they fought for (homeschooling, the rights of parents to raise their children without government interference, to hold the government more accountable to the people, etc.) are now the same things we are fighting for and they are against. We’re the nutjobs now! But remember just a generation ago, you were fighting for the same thing-what happened? Oh I know you must’ve forgotten from all that LSD and pot you did. Never mind.
