MLK’s Dream Revisited

Saturday, September 24, 2011

Today I read an interview with Morgan Freeman in which he accuses the Tea party of being racists. His exact quote was,”It is a racist thing.” I used to think Freeman was a thoughtful intelligent man. I was wrong in that assumption. I guess that belief was merely an artifact of the characters that he plays on TV and in movies. Of course the idea that the Tea Party is racist is another one of those artificial creations of TV and the media so maybe I should not be surprised he believes the lies told by his own particular community. Both ideas seem to come out of a mythological construct of our media culture. I am saddened only because I wished the traditional media portrayal of Freeman had been reality rather than another case of misdirection. Of course finding out that Morgan Freeman is not what he portrays himself to be is much less damaging to society than our discovery that Barack Obama was not what the media led us to believe. Freeman has no real power over my life or my ability to function in society but the myth that put Obama in the White House does.

The idea that the Tea Party is racist is silly. I live in the deep South and I have been to many Tea Party events and it just isn’t racist. In fact the Tea Party embraces diversity. All one needs to do is look at a Tea Party rally to see people of all colors and beliefs mixing together with one goal. The goal of taking back our government from those who are taxing us into oblivion. That really is the only goal of the Tea Party that we see consistently expressed. It is not a racist goal no matter what Freeman or his liberal fellow travelers believe. However with all these accusations of racism and the slurs hurled in our direction there is one thing Obama and his people have given the Tea Party and it is something that Freeman probably can’t even understand. Obama has made us in “Tea Party America” understand the dream of Martin Luther King Jr. I am not going to say we understand the depths of what Martin Luther King suffered but we have learned from his life. I personally say and know others believe this as well that…

I oppose Obama not for the color of his skin but for the content of his character.

This is the real legacy of MLK and something Morgan Freeman in his race to condemn the Tea Party has lost sight of. People can judge a man on his character and not his race and that is what is being done with Obama. Obama is not a good president, in fact he is one of the absolute worst and it has nothing to do with his skin color and everything to do with his “beliefs”. I embrace Martin Luther King Jr. and call him brother because his is not a racist philosophy, his beliefs were to judge the man not the race. I and most of my friend in the Tea Party can see past the color to the soul of the man. I wish Morgan Freeman was that open minded.

I hope one day we can all see past beyond the media myths and their own racism and understand that white, brown, yellow, red, or black a person can oppose a black president for what he does and believes rather than the color of his skin.

I guess I will get back to campaigning for my candidate of choice and the choice of many in the Tea Party movement….Herman Cain. Look him up.

The Evil 1% That Own Everything

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

The LA times today came out with an op/ed by Bruce Ackerman and Anne Alstott demanding that we not only implement Obama’s “Buffet” tax that punishes (taxes) the top 1% of earners but that we go after all the wealth controlled by these people and redistribute it. Here is a quote of what these enlightened souls had to say.

“The more serious inequality problem facing the United States involves overall wealth, not just income. While the top 1% of Americans earned 21% of the nation’s income, they owned a staggering 35% of the wealth in 2006-07, the most recent year for which statistics are available. We should be taxing that wealth directly, and not merely focusing on million-dollar incomes.”

Are these people morons? Why do I even ask? They are enlightened Liberals so of course they are morons and clueless about what wealth is. This country has almost 400 million people in it. That means that the top 1% of earners are 4 million people. These 4 million people make up all the large and small business owner’s in America. That means these are the people YOU work for (if you happen to work). These two mental midgets want to place a tax on the 35% of this country’s wealth that these people own. Do you know what that wealth is? Come on, it is common sense if you think about it………OK, since those of you on the left don’t have that particular sense I better spill the beans. The wealth that these kind hearted liberals want to redistribute is the building you work in, the materials owned by your company that you produce products from, and the machine you work on. If you are a small business that includes the company computer, the company car, the roof that keeps out the rain while you work, and everything else that makes it possible to do your job. It would even include the imaginary shovel that Obama promised in those shovel ready jobs. This is the opulent wealth that these parasites want to see taxed and distributed to the welfare leech masses.

So now using your common sense once more……What happens when you place higher taxes on these items….even you liberals should be able to figure this out by now…..YOU KILL SMALL BUSINESS. Large mega corps might survive but Mom and Pop are done, Bye Bye.

Thanks again Obama and company you are the gift that keeps on giving, much like a venereal disease.

Obama Pissing Off the World One Ally at a Time

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Obama has pissed me off yet again and this time I am not alone. Him or his administration (what’s the damn difference) has directed the IRS to collect taxes from Canadian citizens. You see many Canadians are dual citizens of the US and Canada due to Canadian law, but the US only recognizes US citizenship. So Canadians that were born in the United States or gained Canadian citizenship later are considered US Citizens for life. Only if you go through a lengthy and costly renunciation process can you stop being a US citizen. Even if these dual citizens paid taxes all their lives in Canada they are now being notified that they owe back taxes to the United States as Americans living in a foreign nation. Let me put this even more simply. This effects more than a million Canadians who have never once worked in the United States, have never lived off our more than generous welfare system, they paid taxes to the government under which they live, and many never even lived in the US they were just born in US hospitals. Now millions of people by accident of birth owe hundreds of thousands of dollars in back taxes and the IRS means to get that money by hook or by crook. It is not just the back taxes either. US law states that citizens living in a foreign country must report every dime they have invested. If they do not report these investments they face a 10,000 dollar fine for each bank account, CD, retirement account, checking account, capital investment etc. This will run each of these people’s bill to the US up into the thousands possibly millions. I guess Obama has found a new cash cow to pay for more welfare leeches and Union bailouts.

If these people don’t pay up the US will go after them. It is a felony after all if you don’t obey Uncle Obama and if these people dare visit the US they are in for a nice vacation inside the federal pen for the next 20-30 years. In my mind There is very little difference between what Obama is attempting and what King George the Third did after the American Revolution. Oh you don’t recall that far back. Let me remind you. He sent out royal naval vessels to stop American ships and had every person who had held British citizenship (and who were now Americans) impressed (enslaved) into the British navy.

Long live the Tyrant Obama may his example be remembered for all time

African American’s Need to Wake the Hell Up

 

Friday, September 16, 2011

I’m not black, or African American. What I am is an American Mutt. That makes me uniquely American and proud of it but it also makes me just an average white guy (I just don’t have enough minority genetic material to get special treatment). I and most other Americans whose relatives have been here more than a hundred years have become the great melting pot. I like the melting pot idea it makes Americans special. we are a mixed up melange of the entire planet .We need to focus on being that American melting pot and away from skin color. Unfortunately some people just can’t get over their melanin count. This morning Tavis Smiley, a black and needless to say liberal commentator struck another blow for racism and racists everywhere. He not only suggested, but demanded the president treat African Americans better than the rest of us. His exact words,

“whatever happened to that notion that to the victor goes the spoils? If anybody ought to be looked out for, it ought to be the persons who represent the most significant and the most loyal part of the base. That would be African-Americans.”

I didn’t know the rest of us had a war with African Americans and they won? I thought that whites had bent over backwards in the past 40 years trying to atone for a racist past that nobody under 50 had anything to do with. We have all but turned African Americans into a privileged class…no I take that back. We have made them into a privileged class. You can call me a racist, or a bigot, or even an ass for bringing this up but a black man with the same education and experience I have could have almost any job he wanted. Not I. Blacks are given so many perks I wish I was black. I like being treated special.

When I worked for the State of N.C. I saw more than one under-qualified African American applicant receive a job over a qualified white applicant. Once I (and every other white employee) had to endure a week of sensitivity training after a new supervisor was hired. My job required a Bachelors degree to be the supervisor required a Masters….My new boss had an associates degree. You figure out the rest.

African Americans don’t need special treatment. They don’t need extra political consideration. They certainly don’t need more government handouts. What they need is a dose of reality and to be treated exactly the same as everyone else. Of course I am about to be called a racist for demanding equal rights for all men…..Go figure.
