Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Browsing Posts in Justice



Something has been nagging at me today and I have decided to vent it now. It deals with charity. It is that time of the season to open our hearts (which should be open throughout the year) and give what we can to those in need. Many of us can no longer give as we wish because of economic circumstances and an economy bent on ruining the country for all. I just want you to give some thought to who and where you may want to contribute because there are those in need and those who game.

I pay attention to what happens around me. I very close attention to people: their mannerisms, their moods, their words, and how they present themselves in their lives as viewed by others. I have family members needing assistance where they can’t get it from anywhere else or just feel ashamed doing so. My son-in-law just came up with a condition where he can barely walk without getting winded. The VA won’t give him disability because that has to be decided by the family doctor. The family doctor won’t say he is disabled because that is the job of the VA. His work won’t fire him for not showing up because the employer doesn’t want to pay workman’s comp. it also doesn’t allow him to get unemployment. In the meantime, his wife applies for 10 jobs or more a week and can’t even get work at the local Wal-Mart or McDonalds. No income anywhere and they and their kids need to eat and have a roof over their heads. Meanwhile, illegals can just go to the hospital like it is a private physician’s office and get the medical they need. VA patients die waiting for appointments but illegals get whatever they want.

I know quite a few illegals through work. They laugh about having 2 jobs, leaving communally and sending money back home. Many are paid under the table. They talk about getting drunk and chasing women while they stand their smoking cigarettes. When asked how they can survive they just say that charities give them what they want ( not what they need). They go to churches and outreach centers and get food from those food stores. Clothing the same way. Kids go to school free and are assisted with lunches. In the meantime, American families are starving and needing but their is limited supplies of charities where they can receive. Usually there are always long lines and most of the people that are already there, waiting, are immigrants (yes, too many of whom are illegal).

I have witnessed on numerous occasions, while shopping at my neighborhood grocery store, immigrants, who have no command of the English language, buying food with food stamps (or a special credit type card now). The items that don’t fit on the list like spirits, cigarettes, and other items, well, they just pull out a wad of cash and pay outright. These people are not dressed shabbily and are wearing jewelry, much of which is not costume. How are they allowed to do this? Let me ask this question instead. If you come here illegally, why has the government let you in, without means of support, and house you in hotel rooms? Where does the food come from? Where do the clothes come from? When they place you somewhere, how do they survive from that point on? And now we are talking about bringing in refugees from another culture and world. Same questions: how will they survive on their own?

Whose fault is this mess? It goes anywhere from the lazy people who put themselves into the predicament to our government. You see, the government IS charity (usually called entitlements but also needless, wasteful and illegal spending). You and I pay for this. Those Americans, who should have priority over all others, who are truly desperately in need, can’t be helped sometimes because of limited resources and competition with those who don’t deserve nor shouldn’t get assistance. It is more than a shame it is a disgrace. Much assistance comes from churches and other organizations that receive contributions. I used to be one of those contributors but now I am offended by them because of how they exacerbate the problem.

Let me tell you a little secret. We are all God’s children. Christians are directed to help the poor and those in need. Christians aren’t rich. There are too many people in the world that have “needs”. Our government already allows the flow of money to go to these other nations with “needs”. When you give charity, it may make you feel good but it won’t get you any closer to Heaven. You just can’t buy your way in and that is a fact. So now those that have some means and wish to contribute must pick and choose because of limited funds. That would be me. I choose family first, and if I have any left over “disposable” funds, I am going to make sure it goes to Americans and those who really have a need. I will not give to the churches anymore and if I have to sponsor a family directly (where I can see who they are and what their needs are) then that is exactly what I will do. Too many people in Appalachia that could use my help. I was born and raised in the South and I have seen poor and lived it myself. You still have gamers here too but you also have good people that are proud and wish to do for themselves. Sometimes they just can’t and need some help. Not cellphones or IPads or jewelry but food, shoes, coats and fix the leaks in the roof over their heads, if they have a roof over their head.

I am not here to tell you what to do or how to do it. You do charity as is directed from your heart. If you are liberal, you don’t have a heart so you expect the government to do your charity for you. We already understand that. I am just saying that it is time to think about who really is in need and direct your gifts accordingly. You won’t go to Heaven for it but you might feel better. Most important, those who receive will have their prayers answered and that is the greatest gift of all

In today’s world, a mob of outraged “social justice warriors” can get a person fired for the most inane of statements. The latest pound of flesh came from the President of ‘Mizzou’. However, his resignation is not enough. They are also demanding that he admit his “white privilege”. They also demand MORE black students – in spite of the fact that blacks score lowest on SAT/ACT.

As a nation, we have spent billions of dollars trying to help blacks erase the “education gap”, yet we reach this nadir of social justice mobs where everyone says that we are “racist”.

We spent billions on Head Start. It didn’t work.

Schools were integrated. That didn’t work.

Black schools with white teachers didn’t work.

Black schools with black teachers didn’t work.

Free computers and iPads didn’t work.

Huge private grants/gifts (e.g., Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates) didn’t work.

Entire school systems of blacks run by blacks and given MORE money per student than any other system didn’t work (see: Washington, DC).

So, it must be “white privilege” and racism! Tests are biased. Detroit and Baltimore are crime ridden and largely illiterate because of white privilege and the legacy of slavery! So let’s teach them to resent whites. Let’s teach that to young people! Yes, let’s teach that looting and rioting are “rebellion”. Let’s transform world class universities from centers of learning into “social justice” mad houses that preach myth and debauchery. There were students holding signs stating that they were “liberating” the campus – as if the campus were under military occupation. All would be good and right, if only more people like Sharpton were running the nation! For crying out loud, we actually have Presidential candidates pandering to the hooligans of the “Black Lives Matter” movement!

On top of that, we are being flooded with people from third world nations, and this is further changing the nature of our nation. Social atomization has encouraged short term time orientation, distrust, and corruption, which lead to social decay. And while this immigration flood is happening, jobs are being eliminated by automation. So we are importing MORE labor while simultaneously eliminating jobs. In what world does this make sense?

The ‘barbarians’ are not at the gate. They are in the town center!

How long can we hold the lid on this before it completely explodes? Another decade? 15 years?

Are we to continue to tolerate this social deterioration and intermittent rioting as preferable in attempts to appease them? Are we to continue to temporize, hold the lid on, and let our children worry about the larger ramifications later. Meanwhile, no one ever tells them the truth. Heck, telling the truth is all but banned in the mainstream. All the problems I listed above are blamed on “white privilege” as a given. So, the younger generations of blacks get angrier and more entitled, because they are taught to be angry and entitled. Young blacks feel they have the moral right to intimidate whites. They are taught that they can do no wrong and that whites can do nothing right. Heck, they are taught that “they” built this country. And they are taught this by leftist whites!

Black Mobs and the Coming Race War by Thomas Sowell


Once the religious, the hunted and weary
Chasing the promise of freedom and hope
Came to this country to build a new vision
Far from the reaches of kingdom and pope
Like good Christians, some would burn the witches
Later some got slaves to gather riches

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
And she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

And once the ties with the crown had been broken
Westward in saddle and wagon it went
And ’til the railroad linked ocean to ocean
Many the lives which had come to an end
While we bullied, stole and bought our homeland
We began the slaughter of the red man

But still from near and far to seek America
They came by thousands to court the wild
And she just patiently smiled and bore a child
To be their spirit and guiding light

The blue and gray they stomped it
They kicked it just like a dog
And when the war was over
They stuffed it just like a hog

And though the past has it’s share of injustice
Kind was the spirit in many a way
But it’s protectors and friends have been sleeping
Now it’s a monster and will not obey

The spirit was freedom and justice
And it’s keepers seem generous and kind
It’s leaders were supposed to serve the country
But now they won’t pay it no mind
‘Cause the people grew fat and got lazy
And now their vote is a meaningless joke

They babble about law and order
But it’s all just an echo of what they’ve been told
Yeah, there’s a monster on the loose
It’s got our heads into a noose
And it just sits there watchin’

The cities have turned into jungles
And corruption is stranglin’ the land
The police force is watching the people
And the people just can’t understand
We don’t know how to mind our own business
‘Cause the whole world’s got to be just like us

Now we are fighting a war over there
No matter who’s the winner
We can’t pay the cost

‘Cause there’s a monster on the loose
It’s got our heads into the noose
And it just sits there watching

America where are you now?
Don’t you care about your sons and daughters?
Don’t you know we need you now?
We can’t fight alone against the monster

The name of the post is a song title by the group Steppenwolf and while I was finishing up the rebuild of my bathroom, I was playing some old rock-and-roll. As I was listening to this track, things started clicking. It was made and meant for the Vietnam era but with few modifications, it appears to be timeless moving forward. No one could see where we would be today and, although the hippie culture was spiritual in many ways, who would have guessed that the generation of “anything goes” would have evolved into the immoral cesspool of today. I was waiting to write a post of my frustrations with America when I got the chance but I felt I just had to take time out to post this now. Mull this over: “America, where are you now? Don’t you care about your sons and daughters?” That, alone, leaves out all the illegals and refugees. well, back to my project.

As a courtesy, I have provided a concise set of notes on what the media narrative will be on each incident so that you don’t have to waste your time watching the newshivemindnarr

Look at the following video. One has to admit that this was a brilliantly executed piece of propaganda that played right into the outrage machine’s hands. The liberal hivemind was off and running to blame all whites for being racist (except for them of course)

For those that didn’t bother to watch the video, this is a summary of the timeline


So you have a kid tempting fate. A Muslim kid who did the usual “peace be on you if you aren’t an infidel and may your white rug remain unstained” greeting while he did the liberal TV show round robin. What did he do? He built a clock and took it to school. He showed a teacher who told him not to show it around cause it looked like a bomb but the kid didn’t listen. Why not? Tempting fate? Seeing what he could get away with and report back to his handlers? This was a clock attached to a metal briefcase. He knew what he was doing and the school did what it was suppose to do. Except this case is unusual as the kid was released because it wasn’t a gun finger or gun pop tart. And, of course, Obama thinks it’s cool and invites him to the WH with his “clock”. Lively discussion on another thread about refugees and ISIS entering this and other countries. Seems like this would be an example of what kids could do with ill intent. Like I said, maybe he is testing the waters. I wonder if he’ll finish his “clock” before he pays Obama that visit? Only time will tell! Get it? Time will tell? Boy, I crack myself up.

I have been watching the Donald Trump phenomenon over the past few weeks with detached amusement. I think that I speak for many when I say that it is great to finally see someone (anyone!) stand up to these outrage mobs and tell them to STICK IT. If nothing else, Trump is showing the blueprint for how to deal with the Left’s outrage mobs.

In a world where a white politician must apologize for saying that “all lives matter”, we are glad that someone isn’t afraid of them. In this world where the conservative movement has ceded issue after issue, many of us are just damn tired….of the so called GOP ESTABLISHMENT! We are tired of being told to wait until the next election, while they continue to cozy up to their liberal friends. We are tired of the supplicating, weak manlets that are represented in the GOP establishment

We are TIRED. And they are either so out of touch as to not understand it, or so arrogant that they do not WANT to understand it. Meanwhile, the everyday, conservative sees degeneracy at the top amongst the ruling elite, depravity at the bottom and despair in the middle. Let’s review why:

I came of age in the early 1990s and fully supported the GOP’s “conservative revolution” in 1994. I was excited about the Contract with America. I was excited that we would finally govern on conservative principles. But Clinton was still in office. So we were told that we needed a “conservative” at the top, to go along with our GOP ruled Congress. I staunchly supported George W. Bush in 2000 (I despised McCain, even back then). There were many out there just like me.

What did we get for our efforts?

- We got quasi-open borders where on the ground we witnessed as our schools were overrun by the mestizo children of illegals and our streets were littered with trash. We fought back and were called “racist” for our efforts to save our communities. We were called “racists” BY “CONSERVATIVES” who insisted that the illegals were “natural conservatives” or something. We are told that we are going to become “the next Brazil”. So we helplessly watched as once beautiful communities were transformed into mini 3rd world hell holes. Oh, and meanwhile, the people who criticize us live in Lilly white, gated AND guarded communities, while preaching to us that “diversity is strength”. We NEVER had a national debate on this topic. We were told by our elites that we must take this.

It has been 21 years, since the GOP’s “conservative revolution”, and STILL NO SIGN OF A WALL on the border! They lectured us, telling us that open borders is an “act of love” or that building a wall shows you “have no heart”. This rhetoric coming from people who say that they are CONSERVATIVE.

Oh, and we are told by these same people that Israel must be defended and should have a wall (which they have a magnificent wall that was funded by us), but they don’t feel the same about the United States.

- We got constant ceding of ground on the culture war. They backed down on every single debate.

- The establishment sucks up to the left so that they can attend the hip cocktail parties and make nice money. Meanwhile, we are thrown under the bus.

- After 9/11/2001, we got a grand nation building effort that cost of  more than $2 Trillion and counting instead of going overseas to unleash our military to completely obliterate our Islamist enemies with extreme prejudice. Anyone who called for naming and destroying this enemy was fired or discredited. Oh, and btw, let’s have open borders and IMPORT MORE TERRORISTS!

- We watched as “conservatism” was turned into a BUSINESS (Nay, a racket) that many of us call “Conservative, Inc”. If you want to see how it operates, just make a lunchtime visit to one of the many fancy dining establishments in downtown DC.

All of this happening while election cycle after election cycle, we are fed platitudes about “tax cuts”, “liberty” and evoking the name of Ronald Reagan.

Many of us have had enough. Enough with the platitudes. Enough with the ceding of ground. The elites respond by calling us “crazy” or “extreme”. But we are tired, now.

At this point, 21 years after the “conservative revolution”, I have nothing but contempt for the “establishment” and their minions and sycophants in “Conservative, Inc”. They have no principles, except making money off our backs (i.e., donations) while they ship us up the river.

This is why Trump is gaining traction right now. No, I do not expect him to win, but if he’s still in the race next year and still has the same message, then I will be voting for him. Should he lose, then I will likely sit out the general election rather than hold my nose again and vote for another weak, open borders, nation building, big government conservative that I can hardly distinguish from Hillary.

I will also tell you that the white base is starting to revolt and many are no longer listening to the establishment. All of the race baiting from the liberals and social justice warriors (enabled by the White House) is tearing the nation apart. We have grown tired of being called racist for NOT wanting to turn this country into Mexico or Brazil. We are tired of being called racist for seeing plainly that crime is largely a black problem, yet this is denied in all public quarters. We are constantly told that it is our fault that they commit crimes and destroy their own communities. Where is the full throttled, public defense for our values?

I for one have had enough. And until someone better comes along, Trump for President!
