Cultural miscue…

Greta Hawkins, principal of PS 90 in NYC has decided that Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA” will offend other cultures and is not age appropriate for a kindergarten “graduation”.

Really?

Okay … Notwithstanding the saturation of filth and family dysfunction our children are exposed to on a daily basis just by way of their closest television screen, video game or pocket device, or the fact that this so called principal is already on record as not being the most patriotic of educators, why then is Justin Bieber’s flirty song “Baby” deemed somehow appropriate for the same venue? I know the answer to this question, however I’m curious to know what you think?

Thankfully, the outrage over this monumentally ignorant decision by Miss Hawkins is coming from the many cultures she attempts to speak for. Ultimately, the majority of those who have emigrated to this country have not done so to re-establish their culture here, but rather to assimilate into and broaden the (United States culture) and make a better way for themselves and their families. You see, what many Progressives will never admit, is that “E Pluribus Unum” is what makes our nation great. A singular culture made stronger by the “integration” of facets of other cultures, and not by diluting the core principles of its founding. I would tell you that the answer to the question of “why are we so divided today” lies in conundrums such as this one. It all comes down to who “We the People” really are. The answer may be simpler than you think. But it will have far-reaching implications if we ignore what we know to be the truth and goodness of our freedom, in favor of the politically correct and less than honorable intentions of a vocal and well-funded Progressive cause.

Please contact NYC school officials and let them know what you think about Principal Hawkins!

Punch Line…

President Obama kicked off his campaign on familiar ground today, a university campus. His strategists are certainly advising him well to seek safe haven among the young, inexperienced and easily manipulated sheep who flocked to his 2008 adventure. Help from Moderates will be much harder to garner this time around however. Many who may still be inclined to voice their support for the President in a Starbucks Wi-Fi Hot Spot, are far less likely to shade in the line next to his name behind a voting booth curtain in November.

Make no mistake though, the Progressive Left will be at the Polls in force to cast their votes for the man who brought their Socialist causes to the mainstream under the disguise of “hope and change”. But for those who saw Mr. Obama’s election as vindication of their 1960’s feel good ideology, and who are now finding it difficult to reconcile Utopia against the reality of mortgages, retirement, healthcare and the price of gas, “hope and change” has been relegated to the trash heap of history like so many campaign punch lines of old.

The mantra today was, “we have come too far to turn back now“. Well Mr. President, with all due respect, turning back now is our only “hope”…

Tax lies and coal in Sheriff Joe’s stocking…

I know I said I would be back after the holiday, but there are a couple of issues which demand a response before I go. I understand the President will read a few letters today which he and his class warfare WH have solicited two days before Christmas, concerning what some Americans could do with the forty or so dollars they might lose if the (“temporary” “tax holiday”) payroll percentage reduction is not extended. Now maybe the President should be asking what some of those same Americans might have been able to do this Christmas had the shovel ready jobs he promised panned out, but I digress. The truth of the matter is the “temporary” tax break is something the President never intended to be permanent in the first place but is now championing like he somehow supports (tax cuts). FLASH: this President has spent more of your money than any in U.S. history and is on par to raise taxes (if elected again), to levels no American could possibly fathom. Many words come to mind as I ponder this whole debate and the President’s as well as the Liberal Democrats roles in it, but there is only one I can use to describe them in light of my stated “blog decorum”.

(Disingenuous)

Warning, Right Wing Rant – Please feel free to fill in the blanks “off post”.

Next:

To borrow the POTUS’s worn-out line, “let’s be clear” about something: Sheriff Joe Arpaio has done and continues to do his duty. He is enforcing the law of the land and keeping his jurisdiction safe. In doing so he has interfered with the Obama Justice Department’s policy of appeasement and amnesty with regard to illegals living on the U.S. side of the Southern Border. Now there will be those who trumpet the upward tick in deportations on Obama’s watch, but those numbers are quickly negated by the scores of illegals allowed to move freely about the Southern States in direct violation of Federal Law. Enter the high profile Arpaio and his like-minded Lawmen. In doing his job on behalf of the citizens and as he is sworn to do, Arpaio has brought the wrath of a Federal Government embarrassed and agitated by the fact most Americans side with Sheriff Joe. Not only has the border issue cost this country time, money and the blood of innocent Americans and their Border Agents, but it has become the pivot point concerning any comprehensive immigration reform on the table at this time. Now, Eric Holder will waste additional boatloads of taxpayer cash attempting to paint Arpaio as a racist in Federal Court, money which could certainly be used to enhance border security. Again we see this bunch of college upstarts flying in the face of common sense and justice with lies and Progressive propaganda, and using your money to do it!

Border cover up…

Agent Terry's family bids him farewell.

You had to know that Democrats like Diane Feinstein and company would try to spin “Fast and Furious” into an anti-gun thing. Problem is they have their “facts” confused as usual. Seriously, from Holder on down you have to wonder if these folks could find their way out of a paper bag with two hands and flashlight, that is until you look at the history and know there is and has been an agenda for some time.

Assertion: 70 percent of the firearms recovered from crime scenes in Mexico come from U.S. gun stores.

Fact: That number is extrapolated from federal weapons “traces” only, and in many case the traces are doubled and even tripled up in the collection process as they are often derived from three or more agencies. Additionally, even BATFE is reporting that with the exception of “Holders guns”, most seized weapons are older weapons traced to legal

Agent Zabata's bullet riddled vehicle.

military sales to a number of Central American nations over the years, and had probably made their way into the hands of the cartels simply by way of the highest bidder. (I would add here that in both cases where we are looking at American officials killed by the cartels, (Agents Terry and Zapata), “Holders guns” have been the only ones implicated). Oh and one more thing, it is understood by even the most partisan hack having anything to do with the border firearms issue, that Russia has been and will continue to be a huge influence by way of illegal arms and ammunition sold to the Mexican drug cartels. As I have said many times, those bastards would sell gasoline to arsonist if it turned a profit.

Look, this is simple. Holder and his anti-gun cohorts on the Hill, in another failed effort to portray anything related to the Second Amendment as bad for America, made a big huge boo boo with this “Fast and Furious” gig. Consequently, it’s looking more and more like their negligence got some fine Americans killed in the process.

So don’t be fooled by the desperate smoke and mirrors campaign launched by Eric’s buddies in Congress. The facts tell a very different story. And that is why in this author’s humble opinion, if the President of the United States continues to stand in defense of the Attorney General and does not accept the truth about (Operation Fast and Furious), ultimately he will be complicit in the deaths of those two brave Americans who gave all in defense of the homeland against the scourge of the drug cartels.

Red meat…

If you follow my writing at all, you will know that I’m against amnesty of any sort. And for that reason you might conclude that Newt Gingrich’s recent immigration policy proposal as outlined in his 21st Century Contract with America might make me a bit queasy. To the contrary, I think it makes sense. The problem always comes when the media jumps the gun and harps the sound bite without the facts.

It is true that the Republicans consider themselves to be the party of the family, (the real family, not the Liberal facsimile). Therefore, it is only logical that we should promote that which we believe. Gingrich is correct when explains that it makes no sense to uproot and destroy a tax paying families which, after having been allowed to enter and stay in this country for 25 years or more by way of the current and failed immigration policy, and those of Administrations dating back to Reagan. If one would take the time to read the proposal, one would see that there would be a number of checks and balances, not the least of which deals directly with those more recent and “untied” to America if you will, being given their collective walking papers. There are even more qualifications that disallow voting rights as a penalty even to some of those who will remain.

The message here is simple. This is not a Rhino flip/flop like those of Candidate Romney, but rather a well thought out plan presented by a seasoned lawmaker who understands that simple expulsion of the almost 12 million illegals currently living in this country, while making for good campaign “red meat”, is simply not doable…
