Michelle Alexander Comes to LACC

Michelle Alexander, the author of the New Jim Crow, will be coming to Los Angeles City College on March 23 at 12:30pm. Now her basic premise is that Blacks are incarcerated at a much higher rate than other ethnicities and that drugs are the main factor in their incarceration.  So instead of calling for young Black men to stop doing and selling drugs, instead of calling for better jobs and better educational opportunities we are just going to play the familiar victim card again and say “Wo is me, I am Black and I am locked up but it is not my fault. It’s the White man’s!”

 I am sick of the ongoing victimization by the Liberal Left. Even if that is the case, maybe if they would start following the law instead of breaking it, they wouldn’t spend so much time in jail. I live in the “hood” where there is a liquor store every other block and where the schools look more like mini prisons than they do centers for learning, however that doesn’t mean I have to fall into that “victim mindset.”

We have a Black president for crying out loud! (And yes, he is Black. We both have Black fathers and White mothers, so if I am Black so is he!) We are now “The Man.”  So enough with the ongoing racism! The day we voted for Obama based on his skin color instead of his qualifications is the day racism died!  Does that mean everyone in America is no longer racist-of course not! It does mean, however, that as a country institutionalized racism is no longer the norm!  You want to know what is ailing the Black community? Abortion! We are killing our own people at a pace that the federal government with all their Jim Crow laws never came close to achieving! In nearly 40 years, we have reached the level of lives lost that took 400 years of slavery to reach! So don’t tell me about what the White man is doing to us, what we are doing to ourselves is far worse! The most dangerous place for a Black person isn’t in the jails, it is in the womb! With 60% of Blacks being slaughtered on a daily basis, we need to be concerning ourselves with that real issue and not this manufactured one.

You want to know what elses is ailing the Black community? Education. More Black women go to college than Black men. Why is that? It is because Black men have bought into the whole “Thug Life” mentality and don’t want to better themselves.  There is good news, however, if you look at LACC’s ASO as a representation of what is happening throughout the colleges in America, you get a hopeful picture. There are 17 members on our board, out of those 4 are Black (3 males, 1 female), that is about a quarter of the student government is Black.  Considering we are not even a quarter of the U.S. population I say that is pretty good! If we can get a few more Mannys, Donovans and Ahmaads, we might just be okay.  In the meantime, we have to get Blacks interested in obtaining their education and get rid of the Oreo Complex that prevents them from doing so.

So my question to Michelle is this; Instead of trying to romanticize the Black criminal why don’t you do more to get at the roots of their incarceration? If you are going to school, working and taking care of yourself and family then you just don’t have the time to commit crimes and take drugs. It is time to stop making excuses for people who break the law and have them be held accountable for their actions. It is time the decent people spoke out!

Dorifornia-How Soon We Forget!

Finding Nemo (video game)

Image via Wikipedia

For those of you who are Finding Nemo fans,  you will understand why I compared my state to the little blue fish, Dori. Dori suffers from short term memory loss.  Because she forgets so easily she is often caught in perilous situations. She is a good fish but her forgetfulness makes it harder to make friends or even basic decisions. This is where California finds itself right now.  Suffering from shert term memory loss.

Instead of picking someone new to help us weather this financial freefall we are currently experiencing we went and elected a governor from 1975! Are you kidding me, people! Granted, a big portion of the voting electorate wasn’t even born in 1975 but shame on you for those who were!  While the rest of the country was busy cleaning house and putting in conservative candidates to the point where we actually reclaimed the House again, California was busy being nostalgic and remembering how good they looked in hot pants to actually do anything to help our state. It is absolutely despicable that Jerry Brown would be elected…again!

  Let’s look at what California was like during his tenure as governor. We had the worst energy crisis to the point where gasoline was being rationed. You could only get gasoline based on your license plate number and on certain days.  We had ridiculously high unemployment and though I was young back then, I clearly remember the constant cuts to education. So where are we today? We have ridiculously high unemployment, high gas prices and cuts to education. Hmmm, he didn’t fix anything the first time around, what makes you think he is going to do anything this time?

California is clearly being run by a lot of brain dead dolts who haven’t the foggiest clue about their own history.  What is worse is that California seems unwilling to admit that their liberal policies have done more to depress not only the people but the economy itself. They seem unwilling to try anything new instead they keep banging their head against the proverbial wall while complaining of a headache. It is pure insanity in California. The only good thing is that they had enough brain cells not to legalize  pot! Other than that,  they have shown themselves to be liberal to the point of utter and complete retardation. It is a shame because California holds such promise. Too bad we keep wasting it on people like Jerry Brown.

Election Day

The White House at night

It is Election Day and soon it will be found out if conservatives did indeed claim the White House back from the commie hijackers that stole it in November 2008.  This is not so much about party but about what kind of country we want to leave for our children (Yes, pro-aborts some of us still think having children is a good thing and want to leave the world better than we found it! ) For too long now, we have followed the Pied Pipers of Liberalism to our own detriment.

Meg Whitman

 As of right now, I don’t  know who the governor of California is.  Is it Meg Whitman? Is another round of Jerry Brown (hello! You did a crappy job the first time around, some of us actually remember that!)? Neither one really appeals to me, which is why I will be voting for Chelene Nightingale.  Whether she wins or not, the important thing is to continue to fight for the values we hold dear:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. ~Declaration of Independence

Our future is on the line. We will either continue as a nation forged in liberty or we will become the slaves of the government who thinks they know better than we do. In each generation, there is a time to stand up, stand tall and raise your voice in freedom.  This is our time! I belong to Generation Me. I grew up in a generation devoted to hedonism, feminism and where corruption became the norm. I grew up in the day of AIDS, sexual depravity and moral relevancy. All these things seeking to lay claim to our shared humanity. I had to make a decision.  I could continue down this path of destruction or I could turn my life around and help others to do the same. My generation more than any other has done more to damage the social fabric of society and it is time that we clean up our mess!  If we can destroy it then we can rebuild it! And it all starts with one election! This election!

We will either continue to do what we have always done-exploit greed. Or we take back our Constitution and our right to govern ourselves. So when you go out and vote this Election Day, remember that we are one vote away from becoming Communist China. One vote away from allowing the government to have total control over every aspect of our lives. One vote away from a media run only by the state. One vote away from being silenced. Will you be silenced? I hope not. Get out and vote!

America’s Independent Women

"The Third-Term Panic", by Thomas Na...

Image via Wikipedia

I have been asked to speak on Chelene Nightingale’s behalf at Los Angeles City College during their Voter Ed seminar that they will be presenting on November 1st at 1pm. Chelene Nightingale is the American Independent Party gubernatorial candidate (Note: What a funny word-gubneratorial. Does that make all our governors-goobers? LOL) I have been officially allowed by her campaign to speak on her behalf, so it is just not me going out there as a supporter but it is in a somewhat official capacity as well.

If you look closely at this race, you will see a large number of women running for public office. We have two women running for governor and neither one is a Democrat. We have two women running for the Senate seat. Men seem almost non-existent in this race. Women and minorities have come to realize that the Democratic policies –which were supposed to make their lives better and provide equality–have failed miserably. Because of this those who were before beholden to the Democratic Party are beginning to reject it.

This has led women (and men) to leave the failing two party system and seek out other alternative third parties. While the Dems and GOP continue to fight among themselves, people are looking towards creating and promoting already established third parties. Let the Dems and Republicans mock this growing movement. As Mahatma Ghandi once said:  “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” We are going to win and it will be those “independent” breed of women and men that bring it to pass.

It has been an honor to work with Chelene’s campaign manager, Dani. She has been quite a  help as I try to promote Chelene as the best candidate we have for governor. Why is she the best candidate you ask? In my opinion she is the best candidate she has the best vision for California and has a plan on how to get us there. She wants to give homeschooling parents, a tax credit.  She wants to bring jobs back to California by giving small businesses tax incentives and tax breaks. She wants to halt illegal immigration by attrition. By forcing illegals to go back home, there will be more needed services for those who are in this country legally and its citizens. These reforms are needed to get this state back on its feet again.

I think it is imperative that we stop looking to the broken two party system, which is really the one party system, and start coming up with new ways to impact our government. Whether Chelene wins or loses she is taking a stand and putting the politicians on notice. We don’t need politicians, we need public servants and I feel that is what Chelene Nightingale brings to the table, more so than her rivals.

Prop. 19-The Legalization of Marijuana

Cannabis Mantis

On November 2, 2010, we will be voting whether or not to legalize marijuana in California. The pro hemp side is out there trying to make it sound like some harmless thing. However, I am not going to talk about the dangers of marijuana, we already know them. I am not going to talk about morality-we could talk circles around that all day. I am going to talk about from a purely capitalist point of view and why it shouldn’t be legalized.

 Listen up potheads you just might learn something! The legalization of marijuana would actually be a BAD things for you stoners! Right now, you don’t pay taxes on your weed. You go down to the corner, hand Tyrone a ten spot, he gives you a dime bag, you go home and smoke away.  Oh once in a while you get snagged on a possession charge but really it is not that hard to score and I know many people who smoke who have never got busted. So let’s not act like the jails are overrun with people on pot charges!

However, let’s get down to brass tacks as they say. If marijuana is legalized you will surely be getting a much more chemically altered form of marijuana than you are currently getting. Translation: With the government involved you will get crappy weed. First of all, unlike alcohol, marijuana is classified as a “narcotic” at least in terms of a legal sense. Yes, we know medically it is not but that is not going to make much of a difference, legally they are going to keep it a narcotic and here’s why! The drug companies are not going to let anyone just make and distribute marijuana and they will spend billions to make sure if it does get legalized that they are the only ones who can manufacuture it. Your corner boy-gone! That good Jamaican ganga you love so well-gone! Say hello to Pfizer‘s Pot! A small dose of pot and a large dose of whatever chemicals they decide to put in it! Let’s look at cigarettes. They are legal, they are also a lot more lethal too! They put in a little tobacco and fill the rest of the cigarette with embalming fluid, nicotine and who knows what else! Do you really want Phillip Morris making your joints?

Next, you will be taxed. Now the pro-hemp people are saying. They can use those additional funds to help with the deficit. First of all, how many times have we heard this new tax will help our deficit? Has it ever helped our deficit? No! They just find new ways to waste the money! We legalized the lottery with the promise the money raised from the lottery would help our schools. Yet our schools are still failing and I know a school who hasn’t bought any new textbooks in five years! And that is with the lottery!  It was supposed to help our children-well it hasn’t! We are still falling behind the rest of the nation! So you can’t believe them when they say this will be the cure to our deficit problems! Instead, you will be taxed-do you really want another tax? Right now, you get your pot tax free! So why would you want to pay more money for something that is going to be an inferior product? It makes no sense!

Third, pot legalization won’t make pot more accessible but less accessible.  How so? Well let’s look at medical marijuana dispensaries, they are closing down to the regulations they are unable to keep up with. They are not going to make it easy to sell pot over the counter, the drugs companies are not going to stand for it.  It would cut into their profits. Therefore,  before it ever becomes legalized-like alcohol and cigarettes, where you can get them anywhere, the drug companies will make sure restrictions like: 1) only a licensed pharmacist can sell marijuana 2) That no “generics” can be made except through them, etc. They are going to make it as difficult as they can for you to get the pot. If  you don’t believe me, ask someone on Medicare, who had to fight them just to get a drug they have always taken covered because Medicare decided it didn’t want to cover it anymore. This is what you are in store for.

Fourth, you will pay alot more than the ten bucks you pay now for a dime bag. That will be history. You will pay considerably more and won’t get nearly the “good stuff” you get now. Instead, you will pay about 20 or 30 bucks, plus the state tax, plus the local tax, plus the sales tax and then when you are done paying all those taxes, you might get one or two joints out of the whole deal. How many joints do you get now? More than one! So you pay more money, get crappy weed and get less of it. Yeah, sounds like a winner to me.

Of course, we know things like driving under the influence will skyrocket once it is legalized and there will be more accidents of people driving while stoned. We know crime won’t go down but will go up.  Just like alcohol is involved in many domestic violence and child abuse cases, so will be the case with marijuana as people are smoking more and more of it. But I won’t get into all of that.

 So there you have it in a nutshell, go ahead and legalize marijuana, it will be the stupidest thing you potheads could ever do! But then potheads are not known for being terribly bright are they?

Fighting the Progressives

Luck Just Kissed You Hello

Image by Baby's In Black via Flickr

I often wonder how a group of people that are so dead set against progress could ever call themselves “progressive.” Most  progressives are very much anti-progress even when that progress actually agrees with them on another and supposedly more important issue.

Let’s take the Bus Riders Union here in Los Angeles. These  people are the bane of my existence. The Bus Riders Union is the main reason I hate unions (well them and LAUSD but that is another story altogether)  because they have no concern for the people they are supposedly helping.  Let’s take a look at some of their initiatives.

One of them is called: 1000 more buses, 1000 less police!

Mayor Villaraigosa: More Police Is Not a Progressive Vision for L.A.

Hiring 1000 additional police officers has become a top city budget priority under Mayor Villaraigosa. In 2008, the Mayor announced he was halfway to keeping his campaign pledge of 1000, even as he was moving to cut $100 million from the city budget.

1000 More Buses, 1000 Less Police calls on the Mayor to make a complete U-turn to fund social services, not criminalization.

Are you kidding me with this? According to a July 2008 report from the U.S Census Department there are 9,862,049 people inLos Angeles County alone. That is not taking into account the other 57 counties with the entire state of California. We are the eighth largest economy in the WORLD (California) and you want to put people’s lives at risk by decreasing the police force? Are you insane? I am sorry if I had to choose between buses and police I am choosing police! Even if  have to walk everywhere!  

Then there is this little beaut:

We know the Mayor does advocate some progressive policies and has taken some good stands on some issues. But expanding the police/prison state is not the only step he is taking to endanger the social welfare state.

And there you go people! Right there the truth comes out! It is not about protecting people or giving people a chance to succeed on their own, it is about having the welfare state stay firmly intact and keeping the minority population dependent on them! Now remind me again, what does any of this have to do with lousy bus service? Absolutely nothing because it is not about getting better and improved transportation in Los Angeles. It is not about getting a rail system that will service everyone, rich and poor. It is not about cleaning up the graffiti on the buses, or having better security to protect the riders. It is about a socialist agenda and nothing else.

 In fact according to a report by Metro that dealt with a public  hearing on various transportation issues facing Metro people did want more trains and not more buses!

This comes from a man named Gary Guth who was at one of these hearings:

MR. GUTH:  Hello, my name is Gary. I want the Wilshire Purple Line extended all the way to the ocean, please. I believe that’s the project that the money should be worked on, and that will allow anybody from the Valley that wants to go to the beach have access to it.  And MTA is too slow in completing these projects. How long is it going to take to duplicate all the street car routes that we had in 1961 that were ended, that you guys took away and took that private company out of business? Will it take 100 years? We won’t be able to enjoy it in the audience here.

The irony of all this is that the Bus Rider Union acts like they care about the environment, yet they don’t want trains that are faster, more efficient and don’t leave that dreaded carbon emissions that cause “global warming.” Why is that? Shouldn’t they be fighting to get the trains  up and running faster instead of keeping us chained to antiquated buses? Again, they fight progress.

As you can see the Bus Riders Union is a fraud and doesn’t speak for the people who actually depend on not only the buses to get around but the very limited rail system that needs to be expanded not killed. Progressives are never for real progress and it is time we show these socialists that they will not continue to keep us stuck in the “social welfare state.” That we will  not be their pawns. That we will rise against their tyranny and that of the government that drags its feet in getting us a functioning and thriving public transportation system! It is time we formed our own coalition and fought the both of them!

 

 

Personhood Amendment Comes To California

The Hand of Hope (c) Michael Clancy

California along with several other states is looking to add a personhood amendment to their constitution.  I have to admit, just when I think California is a lost cause and I am ready to throw up my hands in disgust and give up already, something like this comes along and renews my faith in my beloved home state.

California is collecting signatures to get personhood on the ballot. Of course, pro-aborts are none too happy about it because the end result is to eradicate abortion.  California has the most abortuaries of any state. According to Mark Crutcher at Life Dynamics and his website http://www.lifedynamics.org there are 127 clinics in California [Though I don’t think the site listing the abortuaries has been updated in a while so there might be less or more at this  point. Though it is still the best estimate we have.]  and the pro-aborts certainly don’t want something like a personhood law messing up their profits.

The personhood law for California reads as follows:

“The term “person” applies to all living human organisms from the beginning of their biological development, regardless of the means by which they were procreated, method of reproduction, age, race, sex, gender, physical well-being, function, or condition of physical or mental dependency and/or disability. “

This law would not only have an effect on the abortion industry but the in vitro fertilization (IVF)  and embryonic stem cell research (ESCR)  industries as well. Since embryos created by IVF would be protected under this law, you could not simply discard the ones that don’t get implanted. You would have to either not create so many embryos during the fertilization process or they would have to care for the frozen embryos. Next because these embryos would be considered human beings (as they should be!) you could not experiment on them, especially when  you know the experiment would result in their death.  However, that won’t really be a setback in terms of medical research because adult stem cells have shown to be vastly superior to embryonic and have the capacity to be pluripotent [the ability to take on other characteristics of various cells] like embryonic stem cells and without the additional cancer risk.

All in all the Personhood Amendment would be a boon to California as it would show America that California is not the abortion loving capital of the world or at least our country after all. That we do have our priorities in order. The California flag has the California grizzly bear on it and we, as California, have had to bear a lot of liberal hogwash that continues to control our fair state. It is time we pull the rug out from under the poor-choice crowd and demonstrate we are once and for all a pro-life state.

Other states with Personhood Amendments

North Dakota (the only state with no abortion clinic and a Personhood Amendment to their Constitution already passed.

Mississippi-will have it on the ballot in 2011.

Florida

Montana

Missouri

Colorado

Maryland (had hearings on March 19th to get a Personhood Amendment on the ballot)

And as I find others I will keep you updated but as you can see this movement is gaining ground, it is the slavery issue of our time.

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!

A Prayer for My Brother

I don’t usually do stuff like this but I would like everyone out there who reads my blog regularly to take the time to say a prayer for my brother. He had back surgery today because his disk somehow got splintered and was piercing into his nerves. He has been in my thoughts all day and I am hoping he will be okay.

I have three siblings. My oldest sister, Laura who has always been like a mother figure to me. My brother, Leonard (he’s the one having surgery) who has always been my hero and my other brother, Jeff who has always been my buddy. Each one special and precious to me.  There was always something about Len though, something that made me go, “Boy I wish I could be like him when I grow up.”   He was smart without having to try really hard to be.  I had to struggle for every grain o f knowledge I ever attained.  He was funny and charming. All my friends were in love with him.  Of course, I thought they all had mental problems-he’s my brother, he’s not cute. LOL  And though he didn’t go around telling me he loved me all the time, I knew he did.

One time in high school he was seeing this girl. I forget her name at this point but she was from San Marino, California and San Marino is known for being racist.  Or at least that is how us Pasadena folk viewed them.  In any case, he was going out with her and then she met me.  He never saw her again. I can’t say definitely him having a Black sister was the cause of that break up and because he is a decent and honorable man he would never tell me if it had been. [Besides his wife now is ten times the woman that San Marino babe was. ]  But I always suspected which just made me love him more. I sort of envisioned him going, “Hey if you got a problem with my sister, then you are not worth the time of day! Bye!” Oh yeah, I didnt mention, all my siblings are White did I? LOL Might be helpful information.

Leonard went to Occidental College.  In fact, Obama was just graduating from Occidental as Leonard was entering. I thank God for that, could you imagine if they had gone at the same time and would’ve befriended each other there? I could’ve had Obama having dinner at my house! Perish the thought! He later went to Oxford and UCLA (my mother, sister and nephew all attended USC-so we got our own little cross town rivalry going in our family. LOL) and became a corporate lawyer. He left law some years ago to go into real estate.  He has been married for about 17 years and has two girls. One is 15 and the other is 13.  They are the spitting image of their mother-quite beautiful!

Anyway that is my brother and now that you know a little about him maybe saying that prayer for him will be a little easier.  When he was born he almost died, heart problems, the doctors didn’t think he would make it but here we are 46 years later and so far a life well spent.  Let’s pray he gets 46 years more! If anyone deserves a long life it is my hero, my brother, Leonard Paul Leichnitz.

Octuplets’ Mom Has Six Other Children

A woman in California recently gave birth to eight children. All were born without any real problems and are doing fine. But now there is a media buzz because it has been found out that she had six other children.  Everyone is running around trying to figure out how much it will cost to raise fourteen children, blah, blah, blah.

Now I am one of four, so that is not a large family but my mother’s family is larger. Her father was one of ten.  I have a great grandfather who had twenty children. Ten of his own, ten that he adopted.  So I am not of this selfish mindset that smaller is better.  People are saying she won’t be able to afford them.  Why not? She has two advanced degrees that she can use to get employment.  She has a psychiatric technician’s  license, she has a degree in child and adolescent development and is currently working on a master’s degree. So this is not an unemployable woman.  Whether or not she is working is not clear but she clearly can be and she can earn enough to take care of her children.  We are not talking about a high school dropout with no marketable skills here.

Then you have the talk about how much money it is going to cost to send these children to college. Well, first who says all these children are going to want to go to college? Some might just learn a trade.  Still yet, they might all be geniuses and get full scholarships for college-you never know.  Besides, shouldn’t we be more focused on getting them home now then getting them into Harvard later?

The truth of the matter is that this is about abortion. She didn’t have one and so the liberals are hopping mad.  “She should’ve killed some of her babies to make it easy on the rest of us.”  “She shouldn’t have had anymore children to begin with.”  “The doctor should be brought up on malpractice charges. ” For people who are always talking about reproductive freedom they sure want to limit hers. It is none of my business if she wants to have eighty kids.  While fourteen kids may not be my cup of tea, I am sure not going to knock anyone who wants to have those many. If they don’t want me to judge women who have abortions then they need to be quiet about women who have more than one offspring. It is her right to choose, is it not?

Whether I think it is a good idea or not is not really any of my business. I am not the one who is going to be raising the children.  Just like the rest of these liberal pundits need to keep their traps shut. This is an individual, not a politician, not a public figure but simply an individual who has made an unpopular choice.  I think it is abominable the way everyone is digging into her past, it is none of your business! What happened to that precious privacy liberals are always chattering about? What about her privacy? Is she no longer due that?

But because I respect her privacy, I am not putting her name. Though you can find it if you want to. I am not putting too much distinguishing information about her because she doesn’t deserve to be hounded by the Liberal Elite.  God bless her and I hope she and all her children are happy and healthy.

Gay for a Day

I am so sick of gay people and their meaningless protests that it is nottelephone even funny. But here we are again talking about another pointless protest over Prop 8. I have never seen such immaturity in all my life, my son is more intelligent and grown up then these folks. But at least with this protest, there are no screaming banshees to be heard from.

Call in Gay for Day Protest

According to One News Now the idea is the brainchild of two men, “Sean Hetherington, a West Hollywood comedian and personal trainer, dreamed up the idea with his boyfriend, Aaron Hartzler, after reading online that a few angry homosexual-rights activists were calling for a daylong strike to protest California voters’ passage last month of Proposition 8, which reversed this year’s state Supreme Court decision allowing same-sex “marriage.” The couple thought it would be more effective and less divisive if people were asked to perform community service instead of staying home with their wallets shut. Dozens of nonprofit agencies, from the National Women’s Law Center in Washington to a Methodist church in Fresno collecting food for the homeless, have posted opportunities for volunteers on the couple’s website.”

anthony-avWhile it is good they are at least trying to promote giving back to the community. To use charities for some political ploy is definitely on the sleazy side. How about the losses those charities will lose money because of those who do support Prop 8 and do not want to be associated with those that don’t? By listing themselves on these men website they are probably doing themselves more harm than good. But again that is entirely each charity’s decision.

Next, if this country is as homophobic as they say it is why would they encourage people to call in “gay” for the day. It would be like encouraging people to call in alcoholic for the day or to call in as a “pedophile” for a day. Calling in as the latter could very well get you hunted down and killed. They are always talking about gay bashing, if that is the case, wouldn’t calling in gay for the day be the equivalent of handing someone the bat? I only bring this up to illustrate , the depths they will go to create a lie. They know the probability of someone being bashed because they are gay is small and getting fired for being gay is even smaller. Therefore they have no fear in telling people to call in gay because if America was truly as hateful to gay people as they are always trying to represent then they would have to be all kinds of cruel to tell people to risk their very lives for a cause that is not even their own.

This is America and if they want to waste their time crying over spilled milk, let them. But none of this is changing people’s minds except some of those who voted No might now be wishing they had voted Yes. These constant stunts are not winning hearts and minds but are driving the wedge deeper. And in the spirit of their movement I have come up with my own mantra, “I’m straight, I procreate, get used to it!”

Note:  After I had finished my article I found this:

Calling  In Gay-A New Way to Protest

Scott Craig, a fifth-grade teacher at Independence Charter School in Philadelphia, had no problem requesting and being granted the day off. So many of the school’s 60 teachers were eager to show support for gay rights they had to make sure enough stayed behind to staff classrooms.

About 25 teachers plan to take Wednesday off and to have their work covered by substitutes while they discuss ways to introduce gay issues to their students and volunteer at the local branch of the American Civil Liberties Union, Craig said. A letter telling parents why so many teachers would be out went home Monday.”

Now remember these are the same people who told us our children’s education wouldn’t be affected! And here it is coming to fruition! You want to ruin your life with HIV, MRSA, and every other disease known to man-fine but you leave my kids out of it! You want to go around sleeping with everything that moves-fine but leave my kids out of it! You want  to live your life like one endless porn movie-fine but you leave my kids out of it!  All I know is if Arlington Heights ever tries some nonsense like this I will be all over them like white on rice!

I am sick of these people using innocent children as their pawns and if they think I am going to continue to stand for it well they got another think coming! Stop using children for your sick, twisted and perverted agenda! If you are so hot on killing yourself with homosexual sex-do us a favor-do it and shut up about it! Leave our kids and the rest of us alone we don’t care about your lifestyle, we don’t want to hear about it. If it is none of our business, stop making it our business and keep your nastiness out of our schools!

California Burns

And she ran calling “Wildfire!” And she ran calling “Wildfire” and she ran calling “W-W-ild-fire”- Michael Martin Murphy

Okay the above song is about a girl looking for her horse, Wildfire in a snow storm. But in either case, you got someone running yelling “Wildfire!”

This excerpt was taken from Yahoo News!:

DIAMOND BAR, Calif. – More residents of Southern California were urged to leave their homes Sunday despite calming winds that allowed a major aerial attack on wildfires that have destroyed hundreds of homes and blanketed the region in smoke.

Fires burned in Los Angeles County, to the east in Riverside and Orange counties, and to the northwest in Santa Barbara County. More than 800 houses, mobile homes and apartments were destroyed by fires that have burned areas more than 34 square miles since breaking out Thursday.

Personally, I see the recent protests and these fires as correlated. Not that the No on Prop 8 supporters started them (though I wouldn’t put it past them) but more as a sign of the impending second coming of Christ. As the No on 8 supporters are raging against human nature, Mother Nature is raging back. I will talk about more about this in my upcoming article “The Beginning of the End” so I won’t get into it too much here and I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am getting right with God…..NOW!

In the meantime, my prayers go out to everyone affected by the current firestorm.
