Fake Dog Crap and Equal Misery

Before you read this conservative’s rant on the minimum wage, which, for the most part is correct, I must give you some food for thought on the other side of this coin – CORPORATE GREED.

At the age of 21, (1973) in my opinion, the so-called “American Dream” was already mortally wounded.  Manufacturers had already started having their appliances, stereo systems, and other items assembled in Japan, and shipped here for retail sales. Not like in the 50’s, (I was likely in diapers then) when an American manufacturer paid an American worker a decent wage, turned out an AMERICAN made product, sold in America, thus “keeping the money in the family”.

An American made a living, -not subsistence- Americans bought the product, and the sale helped an AMERICAN economy.  One of my first political satire videos has a brief introduction describing the mindset back then. I was only six – perhaps seven.

Dec – 2010: Hands In Your Pockets

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-36fuF84Ldk&feature=player_embedded#t=88

My father worked for an Insurance company. He had a new associate, a real “go-getter”, -as the vernacular of that time went- on his staff, who was making sales records and had landed a large contract with U.S. Steel. The memory was quite clear and stayed with me to this day.  I happened to be overhearing him discussing this with my mother, and if this isn’t an example of where we WERE, I don’t know what is.

At the time, selling one million dollars of insurance in a year was one heck of an achievement.  I can’t be totally sure of the contract value, but somehow, that was the figure I recall.  Anyway, the conversation was about the agent preparing to sign the contract with the U.S. Steel representative over lunch.  CLUE:  In 1958 how many Volkswagens do you recall seeing?

They’d gone out to the parking lot, and the representative asked the agent “Is this your car?” (It was) The representative TORE UP THE CONTRACT.  I vividly remember my father saying something like “That’s why there’s the expression “Buy American!”…

My work ethic was old school. I “put my nose to the grindstone”, applied myself, thought that working hard and diligently  would be properly rewarded by employers.  Somehow, not having a D*** college “sheepskin”, I never was able to break out of mostly minimum wage jobs.  Jobs that didn’t allow me to save anything for the proverbial “rainy day”, have an emergency fund for things like car repairs, or anything that made life any more then survival.

In the 80’s, I was making around $5.00 an hour in retail; manufacturers so-called warranties on items were usually “90 days on labor, 1 year on parts from date of purchase”. What a joke! The reality was, even if the item malfunctioned during the warranty period,  it was the responsibility of the consumer to have kept the original box and packing material, pay the cost of returning the item to the manufacturer, and wait “four to six weeks” for the repaired item.  This is why icons like Montgomery Ward had service contracts (for which the sales person, moi, would get a minuscule bonus) that allowed the person to return it to the store, and get it repaired, or if not feasible, replaced without charge. Large appliances like refrigerators had in home pick-up for repair/replacement additions on these.

Given the frequency of defects in stuff even then, long before everything started being made in (omitted) China, these service contracts were a real value, and I made every effort to explain this to my customers.  Many thanked me when, for example, their crazy “hundred dollar specials” -what I was calling the bare bones Hoover and Eureka Vacuums- screwed up, and they could get an immediate replacement, since their construction mostly precluded any attempt at repair.

Never mind my present employment or wages… I’ve been put in a close to homeless position several times in the last six years by this “free market” and I still have the same work ethic, for all it has gained me. I’m not a progressive. I would like to see our government think outside the box, and do two things:  Use as an incentive, a lowering of the corporate tax to (they’d piss themselves)  10 percent, -I think its about 35 percent now-  in exchange for getting the hell out of overseas manufacturing, and bring the jobs back here.

Also, pull their heads out of their backsides and stop fighting coal.  We have the lion’s share, and America would be much better off.  China doesn’t give a flying F*** about air pollution, far better to allow our resources to fuel our economy instead of faulty “green” technology, and strangling business.

Fake Dog Crap and Equal Misery

Written on Friday, December 27, 2013 by

I was listening to Andrew Wilcow (The Wilcow Majority) on Sirius XM Patriot the other day. If you don’t know from Wilcow he is, among other pursuits and projects, a Conservative talk radio guy. The subject was about the minimum wage, the McDonalds employees who want 15.00/hour, etc. One of the things that Wilcow is always talking about is the idea of “market distortions” and how they are, by and large, created by Government interference in free market capitalism. Market distortions aren’t good because guess what….they DISTORT THE FREE MARKET! And there are really bad consequences.

The example he used was fake dog crap made in China…one of the early, cheap Chinese imports to the U.S. along with fake vomit, but let’s stick to the dog crap. I won’t try to quote him but here is the gist of it: Who buys fake dog crap and why? Why would you spend your hard earned money on fake dog crap? Because you want to play a joke on someone, right? So you’re wandering through the isles at MegaMart and you see fake dog crap for $1.99. You think you could pull a fun gag on your wife with it and it’s totally worth the $1.99 to “get her”.  But let’s say that fake dog crap was made in New York instead of China. The cost of doing business in New York, like most of America is much higher than in China and it isn’t all because of wages. The regulatory, bureaucratic, compliance and tax burdens would cause the fake dog crap to cost much more than $1.99. It would cost more like $12.99. The question becomes would you spend that to play a fake dog crap gag on someone? Not likely. New York will have priced itself out of the fake dog crap market and so it is with much of the manufacturing of ANYTHING here in the U.S.

The McDonalds employees who are protesting their wages and want $15.00 an hour should try and buy fake dog crap made in New York. They are trying to push McDonalds to the same place. They talk about getting a “living wage”. I ask you, since when is the minimum wage supposed to be a living wage? It’s the MINIMUM WAGE! Most of us get that it is where you start out in the workforce. It isn’t SUPPOSED to be a living wage and CANNOT BE. As Wilcow notes (and this ain’t news folks…we’ve all seen this happen before), there can be only two outcomes for the McDonalds employees should they get what they want and they’re both bad. If McD’s was made to pay 15.00/hour, the burgers they sell would be like New York fake dog crap….and cost more than most people are willing to pay. They would either price themselves out of the burger business and close the stores OR they’d install the soon to be available robo-burger machines that make the burgers as well as a human. Either way the employees wind up the same way…out of a job.

In my opinion if you want to fight and scratch and work and claw your way all the way up to “burger boy” and just stop there, don’t expect to make a fat salary and enjoy job security. In fact if that is as far as a person wants to push themselves then they deserve low wages and not much of a future. Those jobs are largely for the youth starting out and getting their feet wet in the workplace, and for adults who want to supplement their income part time (often retirees who need it). Those jobs don’t DESERVE big pay. In the world of work, those jobs are an entry onto the track, not a speedy crossing of the finish line with a big “everybody wins” trophy waiting. Minimum wage is not and cannot be a living wage. Free market capitalism is the best system ever conceived for free people to move themselves up the proverbial ladder of success. Government distorts the market with all its manipulation and interference and never really helps at all…they just muck up the works. I recently heard some of those silly, foolhardy voices on the Left suggesting we should have a national “Mincome”. A minimum income. Think about that and what the ramifications would be. Right off the top the cost of everything would skyrocket. Also, those “less than ambitious” people among us would have even less reason to try and maximize their own potential. In the end however, the increased cost of goods, the “robo-burger” factor, employee cutbacks to offset higher costs…would all add up to no gain and even less jobs available for the very people screaming for a minimum income. Every time the minimum wage is raised it makes it that much harder for the young person, the entry level worker and the retired who need more money, to find a job. If an employer has to pay a minimum $12.00/hour to an employee, he can find twenty-something’s and even older to take those jobs. He doesn’t have to hire an inexperienced high-schooler or a senior who would be grateful for a job at $9.00/hr. They get priced out of the market. The minimum wage is not and cannot be a living wage. It doesn’t work. And the idea of a “mincome” is a foolish idea that only a Progressive could dream up.

The Progressive idea of Utopia and “equal outcomes” is completely ridiculous and has and always will be a failure and a disaster for the citizens. The people in D.C. who are so Progressive, who so want all this equality and fairness are the people who don’t live under the system they’ve set up for us. Where’s the fairness and equal outcome in that? The people running America don’t have to do Obamacare. Can serve a term and retire with fat bennies. Get to use info they are privy to, to trade in stocks in a manner that would get you and me put in jail. They want us to be disarmed while they are not only NOT disarmed, they have armed people guarding them. You see, they are the all-knowing, very important people who must tell us how to live and what laws we’ll have but they exempt themselves. Their lives are more important than ours. That is their message.

What this ruling class wants is control over us all and every market distortion they create hurts us as a Nation. Free markets, free from excessive government interference is the way we all can better ourselves, grow jobs and the economy and offer those who want to WORK a path to their dreams whatever they be. It is that or we can accept the ruling class vision for us…one of equal outcome…one of equal misery.

308705A bad year for our nation ended with militant gays and their radical left accomplices engaging in a full blown attack against Christianity.  And A&E learned the hard way that there are a hell of a lot more Christians than there are socialist queers.

Fortunately for fans of the dynasty, A&E’s love for money outweighed their contempt for Christianity.

Unbelievably, Americans still don’t realize that Gays represent only 1.7% of the population…but here we are, allowing these flaming jerkholes to disrupt our legal system and our society.

And we are sick of it.

The anti-Christian radical-left media bigots took Phil Robertson’s statements so wildly out of context…. as nicely pointed out by Breitbart’s John Nolte, because it was the only way to portray Phil as being full of hate.

We have an AWESOME piece by The Man in Black.  And it fits in beautifully.  I think you’ll dig it.

Happy New Year Guys…  Let 2014 be the year we started turning things around…and getting more and more people back on the track to God.

God bless America.

Evidently the Pentagon has again renewed it’s effort to decommission and mothball one of the finest weapons we have in our arsenal.

I am speaking of the A10 Warthog, not a pretty plane, not a streamlined elegant profile, but never the less a potent, proven aircraft that has proven itself to be an excellent platform for close air support for ground troops, and one of the finest deterrents for dust off operations involving helicopters

It’s ability to stay aloft for long periods of time, endure enemy fire, and devastate a target with a 30 MM Gatling gun is a formidable weapon indeed. The gun’s signature sound sounds like it is giving you the raspberries. It fires so fast that it breaks the sound barrier.

I feel that we should keep this weapon in our arsenal.

I have included a video so that you can hear and see the pilots that have flown it, the people that it has supported, and the weapon in action.

 

Get past the rap,…and watch this one.

This is the last verse of the Star Spangled Banner.

I remember it from when I measured my age with one digit.  Hardly school curriculum these days!:

Oh thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand

Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation!

Blest with victory and peace; may the heav’n rescued land

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a Nation.

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,

And this be our motto: In God is our trust.

And the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Frying the 100th Egg

Probably for the 100th time, I am posting a 1950 quote attributed to the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen, one of America’s greatest teachers/preachers. Sheen was not a bigot – truly a saintly man of God who was also a scholar relating to Islam. He did however see that the depraved death cult in Islam enjoys support from another death cult – the deniers of the sanctity of human life at all stages – the “progressive.”

“At the present time, the hatred of the Islamic countries toward the West has become hatred against Christianity itself. Statesmen are now taking it into account that there is a grave danger that the temporal power of Islam may return on a broad scale, and with it, the menace that it may shake off a West which has ceased to be Christian, and affirm itself as a great anti-Christian world power. Muslim writers say, “When the locust swarms darken vast countries, they bear on their wings these Arabic words, “We are God’s host, each of us has 99 eggs, and if we had 100, we should lay waste to the world and all that is in it.”

Sadly, the evidence is now overwhelming – the United States of America has become Islam’s “100th egg!”

Are we not even exporting jihadist’s with impunity, weapons, and money?

Have we not thrown the whole Middle East into chaos?

Are we not enriching our enemies with insane energy and fiscal policies?

Hasn’t our education system been taken over at a level of governance and propaganda that cannot succeed?

Haven’t we worked tirelessly to destroy our free enterprise system?

Haven’t we ignored the principles of personal responsibility and e pluribus unum that made our nation and its health care system the greatest the world has ever seen?

Haven’t we disarmed our military – even on its own bases where a single insane terrorist can wreak havoc on its personnel?

Are we, the once freest nation in the world now the “100th Egg” to “lay waste to the world and all that is in it?”

Praise God, we will overcome –

Oh thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand

Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation!

Blest with victory and peace; may the heav’n rescued land

Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a Nation.

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,

And this be our motto: In God is our trust.

And the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph shall wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

State Controlled Media Propaganda Machine Offers The Rehabilitation of Hillary Clinton for 2016

Although I was trying to take Sundays off during the holidays, I thought I needed to come out of my self-imposed hiatus to brief you on this breaking news item: Hillary is definitely planning to be installed as America’s First Female el Presidente!

CLINTON-IOWA/

In it to win it: was there ever any doubt?

I realize there was never much doubt about this fact, butt the confirmation came with the publication of part one of a 12 part book report on Benghazi assigned to David Kirkpatrick of the NYT by an unnamed Administration official. I can’t mention any names, butt her name rhymes with “vice” and starts with an “r”.

APTOPIX Obama UN General Assembly

Back off Rhambo, she’s mine.

In his book report, David proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Hillary didn’t lie about Benghazi; it was about the video all along. And, oh, by the way: they weren’t al Qaeda either.

“Months of investigation by The New York Times, centered on extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who had direct knowledge of the attack there and its context, turned up no evidence that Al Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had any role in the assault. The attack was led, instead, by fighters who had benefited directly from NATO’s extensive air power and logistics support during the uprising against Colonel Qaddafi. And contrary to claims by some members of Congress, it was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam.

Proving once again the axiom that the bigger the lie, the more often you have to repeat it to make it so.

big lie

When last week’s 60 Minutes interview with Susan Rice (part of CBS’ own government-mandated rehab program following their previous misleading if not downright felonious reporting on the subject – see “When ‘60 Minutes’ Checks Its Journalistic Skepticism at the Door,” ironic,to say the least)  proved beyond a doubt that Benghazi was still an albatross bedecking Hilz’ neck, quick action was required. The (lap)dogs of the government-media complex had to be dispatched post haste in order to clear the path for 2016 as promised.

120420_clinton_dancing_albright

Susan, admiring Hilz Albatross necklace: can’t anyone in this Administration be straight? With the American people I mean?

Note, there’s still time for an end-of-year award for bravery in journalism award.

truth

So I’m certain that this new NYT series will adequately clean up that little rightwing generated meme about Benghazi being a scandal of incompetence and/or negligence and malfeasance, leaving Hilz free to pursue her life’s dream of ruling the universe as the second coming of the Dragon Lady; unfettered, finally, by that phony Benghazi scandal.

Inaugural gown-in-waiting: The Dragon-skeletor rules the Dark Knight

It certainly took longer than anyone expected:

hilz meme2

So I think we can trust the MSM to run with this newest in-depth analysis of a tragic incident that marred Hillary Clinton’s otherwise remarkable and distinguished tenure as Big Guy’s Secretary of State:

Screenshot Studio capture #1580

Because dancing with cows is an important function of serving as Secretary of State, that’s why.

Because, “with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?”

bo hill no hope

Don’t be fooled again. It makes a huge difference.

And remember: History is too important to leave it in the hands of journalists, especially those working for the state-controlled government-media complex.

Geert Wilders Anti-Islam Sticker 1

“Islam is a lie. Mohamed is a criminal. The Koran is poison.”

by, Marvin Hokstam | NL Times – Netherlands

Google has deactivated the islamsticker@gmail Gmail account politician Geert Wilders was using to spread his anti-Islam stickers. The deactivation was probably prompted by the many complaints Wilders’ umpteenth anti-Islam initiative had prompted.

It was the politician himself who reported via Twitter on Boxing Day that his account had been closed. “Unbelievable; Google just blocked the account. It seems Mohammed Rabbae’s complaint was successful,” he tweeted. Rabbae had complained at Google that Wilders was abusing its service.

Geert Wilders Anti-Islam Sticker

The Arabic Inscription Reads: “Islam is a lie. Mohamed is a criminal. The Koran is poison.”

His complaint –on behalf of the National Council of Moroccans- had been among many complaints that were lodged against Wilders after he came out with his anti-Island sticker a week ago; it read “Islam is a lie. Mohamed is a criminal. The Koran is poison.”

The politician claimed the sticker was not meant as an action against Muslims as the majority of people of this faith is not violent. He has since launched a new account where people may order his sticker.

Connecticut Gun Registration Forced on Gun Owners

Posted By on Dec 28, 2013

The old adage “history tends to repeat itself” is truer than anyone can imagine.  Any student of history knows how Hitler disarmed the German people; he initiated gun registration.  On January 1, 2014, the State of Connecticut’s new gun laws go into effect which left Connecticut residents standing in long line to register their semi-automatic rifles and high-capacity magazines.  It is happening in America.  Gun registration has been implemented in Connecticut.  What’s even worse is that many residents consider this new law by the state an “unconstitutional” requirement, but are complying anyway.

[Video]
http://www.wfsb.com/video?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=9673369

WFSB 3 Connecticut

The Connecticut gun control laws were passed following the Sandy Hook, Newtown, Connecticut shooting, which some believe was a hoax to initiate the gun control agenda.  Please do not misunderstand.  I am not saying the Newtown incident was a hoax nor am I saying it didn’t happen.  What I am saying is there is information compiled by several individuals indicating this incident could have been a mass “psy op” perpetrated against the American public by government in order to promote an agenda related to gun control.  In other words, the government uses an incident so horrific that it would convince individuals to concede their Second Amendment rights for the illusion of greater public safety.

Connecticut resident Scott Boccio said, as he stood in line to register his firearms, “I understand why they’re doing it, but I don’t think it’s constitutional.”

Another resident registering his magazines, Charles Gillette, said he would have a problem if the state were trying to ban magazines or firearms, but “if they just want to know where they are, that’s fine with me.”

Jared Krajewski stated, “If people are going to do things illegally, they’re not going to be here registering their guns.”

Take a good look at Connecticut.  Here is the perfect example of sheeple.  Residents know these gun laws are unconstitutional; yet, they obey by marching nicely down to the town hall to register their firearms and high-capacity magazines.  The first order of business toward gun confiscation by the government is to find out where all the guns are, who has guns and what type of guns and ammo they have.

Evidently, these residents of Connecticut have been duped into thinking that gun registration would prevent a mass shooting since that has been the rhetoric spewed by politicians and the media since the Newtown incident.  Some residents like Jared Krajewski think that anyone who would refuse to register a gun are going to do things illegally.  This is an example of mass brainwashing at its best.

The people of Connecticut are on the front lines confronting the initial stages of gun control with possible confiscation in the future and are failing the rest of the nation.  Here are three shining examples of what is wrong in this country.  When courage and bravery are replaced with compliance, apathy and cowardice, tyranny reigns.  Knowing something is wrong and failing to act in opposition to it is just as bad or worse than not knowing.  These residents need to go back and take a look at the countries who instituted gun control measures; the governments of those countries killed millions of their own citizens who were opposed to the platform of their government or who happened to be Jewish.

To the residents of Connecticut, I say this:

While many of you may not like guns and could care less if there were a gun in the world or not, there are many individuals who believe that the God-given right of men to defend themselves against tyranny and slavery are not to be encroached upon by others.  Our founding fathers knew it as truth and set forth a means to ensure that this right should not be discarded by governments instituted by men.  Whether you realize it or not, those without a means to protect themselves are subject to gross violations of every evil nature conceivable by man.  It is only the ability to bear arms that ensures all other God-given rights.

The first rule of thumb in obtaining an object is to first know where the object is located.  Hitler used this very effectively when he ordered the German Jews to register their firearms.  It wasn’t long afterward that Hitler decided to confiscate those firearms and imprisoned the Jews who came to comply with the law.  Many were murdered in death camps scattered throughout the German occupied territories.

Governments are made up of men and man is fallible, suffering from imperfections and tendencies to exert control and power over others.  It has been seen time and time again.  While it may seem that our government would have the best interest of the people at heart who it serves, this is not always true:  especially in the atmosphere that has now enveloped our country.

Take a good look around you.  Our federal government and our president disregard the law at every turn.  The judicial system is increasingly partial toward government and law enforcement has become more a pseudo-military style of operation during wartime, than an organization designated to “protect and serve.”  Citizens in this country have been subject to invasive body cavity searched without probable cause or warrant.  We are spied upon daily by our own government.  People are being stopped for DNA samples around the country under the guise of a “public safety” study.  Freedom of speech and assembly along with having grievances with our government addressed are becoming non-existent.  This is becoming the land of the enslaved more so than the land of the free.

Connecticut has a proud history of being an original colony that, together with twelve others, forged this great nation of ours.  Battles were fought throughout the state in the American Revolution where our ancestors gave all to ensure that their posterity would have a prosperous future, secured with all the rights God endowed mankind and subservient to no one man or government.  They forged a nation based on the idea of self-government, believing that all men could participate in government and understand unjust laws and decrees.

No one has to “think” your state law is unconstitutional.  One reading of the US Constitution’s Second Amendment will tell you it is.  The law of the land, the US Constitution, was written to uphold individual rights, not subject individuals to mob rule.  An unjust law is not law and should not be obeyed.  Mob rule can be one of chaos and absurdity.  If the majority believe it’s in everyone’s best interest to control what you eat, do you not believe you have the right to eat what you want and like?  If a law were enacted to make the purchase of a soda larger than 12 oz. illegal unless you filled out an application and you wanted a 16 oz. soda, would you comply or would you believe it unjust and refuse to follow it?  While this is a simple example and many will view it as an apples and oranges comparison, the principle remains.  Ask yourself this; “how many criminals did prohibition produce?”

When you purchased your firearm, you did not have to register it with the state.  Why are you having to register it now?  Because a law was passed to do so?  Are you going to be a criminal for not registering your firearms?  And the notion about people who do not register their guns will be doing illegal things is absolutely the most blatant example of brainwashing by government as yet.  Were individuals prior to this registration doing illegal things who were law abiding firearm owning citizens?

Is it any business of the government to know who has firearms, what type and where they are?  The government, state and federal, is subservient to its people, not the other way around.  By complying with this unjust law instead of calling it what it is, it sets a precedent for other states and possibly the federal government to enact unjust legislation since the residents of Connecticut have demonstrated their willingness to comply without complaint or resistance.  Where is your outrage, your civil disobedience?  Many standing together can fight a tremendous foe.

Connecticut residents have a lot of hard questions to ask themselves and to honestly answer; that is, if you didn’t turn your brain off at the behest of government.  You have embarrassed many Americans and those who fought and died for your freedom and rights.  An opportunity presented itself to you to take a stand and it was wasted since you complied.  From the looks of it, the government knew which states to  implement gun control measures:  California – no ties to the original colonies’ sacrifice and full of leftist liberals who have sniffed too much Coppertone and become blinded by the lights of Hollywood; Connecticut – the sentiments of the residents interviewed and the push by Newtown residents speaks for itself;  New York, NY – the city in an original colony taken over by the liberal banking establishment intent on helping to bring about one world government playing host to the world ruler wannabes;  well, you get the idea.  I pray there are brave and courageous individuals in other states who would stand up against unjust laws and be counted since Connecticut, you ain’t it.

The deaf Italian bookkeeper and the lawyer

Obama was a lawyer

A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper, Guido, has cheated him out of $10,000,000.00.

His bookkeeper is deaf. That was the reason he got the job in the first place.. It was assumed that Guido would hear nothing and would therefore never have to testify in court.

When the Godfather goes to confront Guido about the missing $10 million, he takes along his lawyer, who knows sign language. The Godfather tells the lawyer, “Ask him where the money is.”

The lawyer, using sign language, asks Guido, Where’s the money? Guido signs back, “I don’t know what you are talking about.” The lawyer tells the Godfather, “He says he doesn’t know what you are talking about.”

The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to Guido’s head and says, “Ask him again or I’ll kill him!”

The lawyer signs to Guido, “He’ll kill you if you don’t tell him.”

Guido trembles and signs back, “OK! You win! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed at my cousin Bruno’s house.” The Godfather asks the lawyer, “What did he say?”

The lawyer replies, “He says you don’t have the balls to pull the trigger.”

Don’t you just love lawyers?

By on December 27, 2013

bundled up

I’ve always been a “warm blooded” type of person.  Growing up in Texas, I’ve never experienced a real winter, but even the days that we’ve had wind chills in the single digits, I’ve still rarely ever felt cold. Until this year, that is.

It’s not that it has been significantly colder down here, but rather that I’ve lost a good amount of…*Cough* Insulation… :)

Over this past year I’ve dropped close to 100 lbs off my bottom line, and I’ve got to say that has definitely impacted my body’s natural thermostat.

I was talking to my friend Marjory about this and she shared something with me that I think you may want to see:

Have you ever heard of a kidney wrap?

It is a simple, but powerful technique to take care of your body during the winter months.

This amazing technique used to be well known by humanity that lived in cold climates, and you’ll recognize the truth of it when looking at the fashions people wore in old photos.

Teach your Children well?

October 28, 2013

by Joe Messina

From a young age and throughout the years I have heard people say, “teach your children well, you don’t want to raise little monsters, do you?”

These and other comments were about molding and shaping children at an early age. The Bible says “train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” I guess it’s all about training our children, right? Right!

In Germany, Hitler knew this to be paramount to his success in being the “supreme ruler,” dictator, and “Grand PooBah” so much so that he dictated what would be taught in every school and changed the curriculum to reflect the superiority of the Arian race and people.

At the age of 10 they were grouped by age and taught “German Patriotism”. No big deal right? They were molded and shaped until they were 18 and then inducted into the German Army. After the age of 10 they were not allowed to engage in any outside activities aside from their “group.” They were taught good work habits and ethics, and the learning day had much to do with the great Leader known as Hitler and the Nazi party (socialist).

These kids became so loyal to Hitler and the party that they would turn in their own parents for any anti Hitler or anti-party comments. Party indoctrination was so deep that when Hitler declared the Jews were the cause of the German woes, it was not hard to get the Hitler youth to turn on them. You don’t kill that many people, the way they were killed, without brainwashing the youth. They grew into soldiers that carried out the party’s orders without question because they trusted their leader.

Now, let’s look at today. We have education being more and more dictated by liberal America. Many elementary and high school texts have rewritten history to twist the things we hold sacred into something wrong and inhumane.

Recently an elementary school district taught and tested the kids on the evil conqueror, Christopher Columbus, and the millions of Indians (yes, millions) that he and his people slaughtered. If that’s true, why do we “celebrate” Thanksgiving? (That’s just wrong on so many levels.) The curriculum went on to ask the kids what questions they would ask him at his trial.

Textbooks are being changed to down play the Judeo/Christian influence on this nation’s history. Some history books emphasize that our forefathers came here to get away from religion, rather than the actual fact that they came here to practice their own religion and worship God the way they chose.

I guess, based on these new history books, the Pilgrims must have been very confused because they had the first Thanksgiving to actually offer thanks to the Almighty (not mother earth) for all He had given them.

Jefferson must have also been very confused because he used the congressional meeting house to have Sunday service, government paid and maintained, with the Marine Band playing hymns in the government building!

Now, our elementary school kids are learning about how bad these men were because they owned slaves. They had their faults, and it’s appropriate to teach about the wrongs of slavery, but not to the exclusion of the rest of the story. How about teaching our kids about the selfless dedication they had to the freedom of the American people and that what they sacrificed was much more than a new iPod or Sunday football game?

Then there are our institutions of higher learning that seem to teach more about sexual pleasure and how to get as much from the government as possible than they teach about, science, math, and technology, as evidenced by our drop in world standing in these areas.

Numerous college campuses now have “Sex Week.” Many liberals justify this by saying it’s just “part of the college experience” and it helps the kids to blow off a little steam. I highly doubt that Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, and Jonas Salk would attribute their genius to their pursuit of sex and sexual knowledge in college! More and more colleges have what boils down to “how to have better sex” classes, complete with visual aids, presentations, and nothing left to the imagination. One college provides an introductory comic book to incoming freshmen to help them exploring their “erotic self” and even their “homosexual self.” Really? What if I have no homosexual self or can’t find it. Do I fail?

Politically, students on campuses are being encouraged to embrace communism and socialism and shun conservative values, speakers and teachers.

We are becoming the laughing stock of the world, with our failed economic policies, our mismanaged healthcare law and rollout, and our failing school systems.

Hitler’s lesson was on target. If you get the youth, you have the country. In other words, he trained the youth in the way he wanted them to go and eventually had total control.

Today the progressive left is training up the youth in the way they want to see this country grow and have they’ve been doing so for many years. Take a look around at what’s happening to in our country.

We are seeing the fruits of their efforts now. And we are in a heap of hurt as a nation and a people.
