Progressives are ruining our country

Aug 17, 2015 by

I hate talking Politics as it makes me frustrated. Let me just say that I will be more than glad when President Obama is no longer our “lead from behind” leader. I am literally praying that the next Presidential election will bring us a President who can at least make a dent in undoing the tremendous damage Obama has done to our country and not do any additional damage. I love the breadth and diversity of the Republican Party’s candidates. Any one of them would make a good President, while a few of them would make a great President.

On the other side of the table we have the Democratic Party with Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, or possibly Joe Biden or God help us Al Gore. Three old white males and an old white lady. What happened to the diversity of the Democratic Party? Hillary is a pathological liar who thinks she is above the law and can do anything she wants. Bernie Sanders is an outright Socialist. Joe Biden is a pervert and just plain a creepy person. And as for Al Gore, he belongs in a mental institute.

Do I sound partisan? You bet. I have always been a right leaning conservative. But I have been almost as disappointed in the Republican Party as I am disgusted by the Democratic Party. The voters gave the Republicans decisive victories in two elections, giving them a majority in both the Senate and the House. Have things changed any for the better since then? Nope.

With Republicans like John McCain, Mitch McConnell, and John Boehner having a stranglehold on Congress, there might as well not be a Republican Party. I almost wish Donald Trump would run as an independent but I am afraid it would punish the country much more than it would teach the Republican party a lesson if a Democrat won the Presidency again.

Am I hopeful for the future of our country? I have to be or I would become permanently despondent. I think Ted Cruz or Mike Huckabee would make a good President. But my real hope for the future lies in my faith and the promise from God that evil will be defeated in the end. The Bible promises us that in the end, good will win out over evil, and evil will be defeated — finally and completely. It tells us that “in keeping with (God’s) promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness” (2 Peter 3:13).

So I pray for our country and our leaders every day and I hope you will too.

Democrats emboldened by election want frivolous law enacted

Nov 11, 2008 by

Democrats, apparently emboldened by the election of Barack Obama and other Democrats, are now talking about new legislation for Congress’ lame duck session  to make it a crime to scalp tickets to the inauguration.  Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-California, worried that some of the 240,000 free tickets to the Presidential inauguration may be scalped, is proposing legislation that will make it a misdemeanor to scalp tickets to the inauguration. Apparently some politicians in DC have little else to do than pass a useless law to cover something for which many local and state laws already exist.

It seems absurd to me to go to all the effort and cost to introduce a law that only makes it illegal to scalp tickets at an inauguration, specifically Barack Obama’s inauguration. This is just another example of politicians who love to create new laws with little justification and which serve no useful purpose. It reminds me of the perennial attempts by many politicians to amend the Constitution to make it illegal to burn the U.S. flag. Despite the argument that burning the U.S. flag is protected as an expression of free speech, it also seems to be a solution is search of a problem. The only flag burning I see occurs outside the United States. As a veteran it makes me angry when I see a flag burned, but I realize that the  flag itself stands as a symbol of the right of those who choose to burn the flag to do so.

I think all the politicians in DC need to focus their time and energy on real problems, like reviving the economy, preserving our environment, and the myriad other obstacles and challenges that face our country.  If Senator Feinstein feels compelled to introduce a new law perhaps she can introduce one that makes it a misdemeanor to introduce frivolous laws to Congress.

The real threat to American values from a Democrats point of view.

Oct 7, 2008 by

Democrat Mark Warner is running against Republican Jim Gilmore in the Virginia Senate race. During a recent meeting Mark Warner was caught on tape telling a group of supporters what he felt was the real threat to American values. Quoting Mark Warner.

You’re going to see a coalition that has just about completely taken over the Republican Party in this state and if they have their way, it’s going to take over state government. It’s made up of the Christian Coalition, it’s made up of the right to lifers, it’s made up of the NRA, it’s made up of the homeschoolers, it’s made up of a whole coalition of people that have all sorts of different views that I think most of us in this room would find threatening to what it means to be an American.

So according to Mark Warner, Christianity, protecting innocent human life, defending the Second Amendment, and parents trying to preserve their moral center and ensure a quality education are all counter to the American way of life?  I guess I have been wrong all these years about what it means to be an American. It kind of reminds me of a quote from Senator Obama a while back during a fundraiser in San Francisco.

So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

It is disappointing to think that the things many Democrats find repugnant and threatening to what it means to be an American are the kind of values the Founding Fathers held to be so deeply important. You can listen to the audio clip by clicking here.

The Democrats big lie.

May 27, 2008 by

zero-visibilityAsk any Democrat whether they think the war on terror has made our country any safer and the stock answer you will get from them is no. It is an article of faith of Democrats that the Bush administration has done nothing to enhance our security and that in fact mishandling has actually contributed to the number of terrorists who want to harm America. I have to question how anyone can think that our country is not any safer than it was before the war on terror. What facts do the Democrats have to support that belief? These are the facts that I have been able to collect that refute the Democrats big lie.

1988
February: Marine Corps Lt. Colonel Higgens, Chief of the U.N. Truce Force, was kidnapped and murdered by Hezbollah.

December: Pan Am flight 103 from London to New York was blown up over Scotland, killing 270 people, including 35 from Syracuse University and a number of American military personnel.

1991
November: American University in Beirut bombed.

1993
January: A Pakistani terrorist opened fire outside CIA headquarters, killing two agents and wounding three.

February: World Trade Center bombed, killing six and injuring more than 1,000.

1995
January: Operation Bojinka, Osama bin Laden’s plan to blow up 12 airliners over the Pacific Ocean, discovered.

November: Five Americans killed in attack on a U.S. Army office in Saudi Arabia.

1996
June: Truck bomb at Khobar Towers kills 19 American servicemen and injures 240.

June: Terrorist opens fire at top of Empire State Building, killing one.

1997
February: Palestinian opens fire at top of Empire State Building, killing one and wounding more than a dozen.

November: Terrorists murder four American oil company employees in Pakistan.

1998
January: U.S. Embassy in Peru bombed.

August: Simultaneous bomb attacks on U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania killed more than 300 people and injured over 5,000.

1999
October: Egypt Air flight 990 crashed off the coast of Massachusetts, killing 100 Americans among the more than 200 on board; the pilot yelled “Allahu Akbar!” as he steered the airplane into the ocean.

2000
October: A suicide boat exploded next to the U.S.S. Cole, killing 17 American sailors and injuring 39.

2001

September: Terrorists with four hijacked airplanes kill around 3,000 Americans in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

2002
October: Diplomat Laurence Foley murdered in Jordan, in an operation planned, directed and financed by Zarqawi in Iraq, perhaps with the complicity of Saddam’s government.

2003
May: Suicide bombers killed 10 Americans, and killed and wounded many others, at housing compounds for westerners in Saudi Arabia.

October: More bombings of United States housing compounds in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia killed 26 and injured 160.

2004
There were no successful attacks inside the United States or against American interests abroad.

2005
There were no successful attacks inside the United States or against American interests abroad.

2006
There were no successful attacks inside the United States or against American interests abroad.

2007
There were no successful attacks inside the United States or against American interests abroad.

2008
So far, there have been no successful attacks inside the United States or against American interests abroad.

Statistics show that the Bush administration has had remarkable success in making America a safer place, despite Democratic lies to the contrary. While Islamic terrorists continue to carry out successful attacks around the world, in England, Spain, Russia, Pakistan, Israel, Indonesia and elsewhere, no terrorist attacks have been successful in the United States for over four years. This success can be attributed to several things. The success of the war in Afghanistan, defeating the Taliban and depriving al Qaeda of its training grounds. NSA eavesdropping on international terrorist communications. President Bush’s skillful diplomacy in convincing other nations to take stronger actions against their own domestic terrorists. Even the Department of Homeland Security may not be as lame as one might think. There are many more contributing factors to the remarkable success of the Bush administration in defeating terrorism at home and abroad, but Democratic contributions are not among them. The Democrats were opposed to almost every initiative the Bush administration proposed to fight the war on terror. But despite the Democrats best efforts, our country is safer now than it was before September 2001. So the next time you hear a Democrat say our country is not safer now than it was four years ago, be sure to stand up and call them on their lie.
