Why One-World Government Will Be a Curse

by Robert Arvay

Some years ago in an online forum, I was discussing the promised One World Government with someone who advocated it. The discussion was going nowhere, and soon I realized why. We had no common definitions. So I asked my friend and opponent, “What does a good government do?” 

His answer shocked me. He replied (in more detail than I need provide here) that a good government is one that takes care of its people. 

I rebutted with this:  What you have described is not a good government, but a good parent. It is a good parent who takes care of his child, nurtures that child, protects and promotes that child. 

But are we children? And are the people in government wiser and more caring than we? Are not we the adults? 

My definition of good government is one that is controlled by the people. The words of Abraham Lincoln, that we are a government of the people, are not empty. Either we are governed by ourselves, for ourselves, or else, we are ruled by those who seek and who exercise authority over us. 

Life is scary and dangerous, and so it might be understandable that some people would revert to their childhood mode of thinking, of running to mommy and daddy for security and shelter. Life can be a struggle, and the struggle to prosper can at times become very unpleasant. 

But government is not our parent. It is our agent. Government has no authority. We do. We may lend it a portion of our authority, to exercise as we see fit, but the authority is ours, not theirs. We can recall it at our discretion, and at any time we choose. 

Government has no rights. Only individuals have rights. Government is not the source of those rights. God is. Government’s duty is not to grant us those rights which government deems appropriate. Its duty is to protect our rights as we direct it to do. 

In nearly all Western countries today, and some others, we see the end result of the philosophy that government should meet our needs. We see that the people have not loaned their authority to government, but rather squandered it to those who have been placed in power. 

We the people have voted against those who told us, you are good enough to make your own decisions, to provide for your own needs, and you are generous enough to help those in need, to help them with your own dollars, not with your neighbor’s money. We rejected them. 

Instead, we voted for those people who told us that if we trusted them, they would give us things. They would take care of us. After all, we deserve it, don’t we? 

A Canadian friend lamented to me that in his country, “We traded freedom for free things.” Supposedly, free things are expensive indeed. And freedom, once lost, is exceedingly difficult to regain. 

Now we see the beginnings of the end result. For government is not wiser than we are. Nor is it more virtuous. It cannot magically produce goods and services. Only we can. 

Western nations have become like a family who have gone on a spending binge. The people have lived well for quite some time, and have become accustomed to high wages, employment security, free health care, and retirement in their fifties. Along the way, those people developed a sense of entitlement to those things, and an expectation that it is the duty of government to provide them, and somehow, to pay for them. 

But as so many families have discovered after the Christmas holidays, those credit card bills have piled up. Repayment will be difficult. It will be necessary to forego the usual luxuries and comforts, and to scrimp and save until the debts are paid off. 

Oh, no. That will not happen. 

And so what does daddy do? He gets yet another credit card, and begins running up charges on that one. So for a time, all seems well. The bills keep piling up, but those will put off for another day. Some day. But in the meantime, it’s wine and roses. 

We are now reaching the final credit limit. Time is nearly at an end. The creditor is at the door, and he has a moving-truck with him. 

Those who have been delivering the wine and roses, those greedy insatiable capitalists, those heartless vermin, it’s all their fault. They are to blame. They used us. They tricked us. They addicted us to things for which we never had any hope of payment. It’s not our fault. And they had darn well better keep feeding us, or we will revolt. 

So what happens next? Well, the Bible has been telling us for a long time what happens next. A new leader comes along. He and he alone has the solution. If we will all but follow him, he will solve the debt crisis. He will scare away those horsemen of the apocalypse, who are poverty and famine, war and death. He offers us hope for a better future. 

One problem. He is one of the horsemen; indeed, he is their leader. He rides upon a pale horse, and he carries “…a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering…” (Rev 6:2) 

Even if you disbelieve in the Bible, you surely recognize that the world is becoming more and more ripe for tyranny. And what is tyranny? We think of it as the power of a strong man such as Hitler, who forces his will upon the people. 

But Hitler was elected. He made promises, and the people were eager to hear that they “deserved” the riches which they desired. He blamed others for the economic crisis which they faced. It was all the Jews, it was the communists, it was the Poles. And so it was the people themselves who voted for Hitler. 

Now we find that the would-be tyrant advises us to “eat the rich,” to run to mommy and daddy, to believe that we are entitled to what we desire. 

The end result for Germany was the utter ruin of itself as a nation, and ruin with great slaughter and suffering. 

Pray that before that happens to us, we will come to our senses, and say to the government, “We want to see the books. We want to be in those meetings behind closed doors, nay, we want to conduct those meetings, and in the open.” 

If we just sit and wait for the government to solve the problems it has created, we are fools. For we are the government.

George Jarkesy Reviews Disappointing “J. Edgar” Movie

I had high hopes for Clint Eastwood’s recent biopic of J. Edgar Hoover, simply titled J. Edgar.  I expected the film to focus on the career of this fascinating and polarizing American, and how he managed toGeorge Jarkesy,Chairman of the National Eagles and Angels Association, CEO of Jarkesy & Company  endure for five decades in a highly political environment where few survive for longer than a Presidential term. I certainly did not expect a romance story, and I’m not the only one who agrees: witness the poor reviews all around, from people all over the political spectrum. Dana Stevens from Slate criticizes the film for not making “a case either for or against the troubled figure at its center,” instead taking a detached view of Hoover’s actions as FBI director. 

To put it bluntly, why does our society care so much about the private issues and sex scandals of great men and women, and not about their professional accomplishments? In his time as head of the agency, Hoover accomplished a great deal including: 

    Restructured the FBI and turned it into a professional, well-run law enforcement agency

    Captured famous outlaws and bank robbers in the 1930’s, such as John Dillinger

    Arrested German spies and Nazi saboteurs during World War II 

Despite all of the good he did, he also maintained secret files on many Americans, an act that overstepped the FBI’s authority. Yet, the movie touches upon very few of Hoover’s major accomplishments or controversies. 

Eastwood and writer Dustin Lance Black ignore this rich historical material, and instead focus on Hoover’s relationship with the associate director of the FBI, Clyde Tolson. Why do the filmmakers care so much about his private life? Hoover’s alleged homosexuality has been used a sideshow, and it disappointed me that the filmmakers chose to buy into this theme instead of presenting an even-handed depiction of his life. We deserve a better movie treatment of this pivotal and influential figure, and J. Edgar Hoover deserves a better treatment of his legacy.

A Time to Give Thanks

by Ron Devito

Today, I received word that a former team leader at my job suffered a brain aneurism. Fortunately, his surgery was successful and he suffered absolutely no brain damage. He gets to celebrate Thanksgiving with his family – and with his body whole. Another colleague of mine had to take time off from work because his mother died. Our lives here are fragile, not guaranteed, and at some point will end.

The past two months politically speaking have not been good – at least from my perspective on things. It’s all too easy to get depressed over things not panning out the way we hoped they would. Sometimes the narratives we construct in our minds just don’t play out, or as the Rolling Stones famously sung, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”

In this political game, we tend toward hyperbole – some catrastrphic thing that will happen if we don’t get what we want. Many of us are still struggling with this – pining away over what could have been – as I write. Well…the earth is still rotating at 1,000 mph. It is still tilted on its axis at 23.5 degrees with the direction of tilt shifting with the equinoxes and the solstices. We still orbit the sun once every 365 and 1/4 days. The cycle of life continues. As long as we are above the ground, conscious, and whole – we have something to be thankful for – each day, not just on Thanksgiving.

Recent events should also teach that no person alive is indispensable. No one. Not even people who may hold superhero status to us. Our Presidential Succession Act of 1947 provides for up to 14 people who can hold the office if the President is incapacitated. Even POTUS is not indispensable. Even if he (and there has been no she in the Oval Office as of yet) dies, VPOTUS takes over in an orderly and peaceful transtion and life goes on. If both die, the succession passes down the line to secretaries of various cabinet positions. Life still goes on. The republic lives on.

Obama is a bad president, yes, but we have survived bad presidents before. We’ve survived two world wars, a depression, and a civil war – still the bloodiest war in our history. We lost as many people in three days on that field in Gettysburg as we did in the entire VietNam War – as brother fought against brother. The White House we have today was once burnt to the ground. We did not merely survive these things. We became the world’s superpower and an exceptional nation. We built a trans-continental railroad. We ushered in the world of flight. We put a man on the moon. Our iPhones, Droids, and other favorite devices were born of the Space Age and capitalism.

What we are celebrating should also give us pause. You see, the Pilgrims tried a form of socialism. They nearly perished as a society. Those who were left realized that their form of socialism was not working too well – and if something did not change, there would be no colony left by the close of the following year. So, each Pilgrim became responsible for his own plot of land and its production. Fast forward one year, and the Pilgrims thrived under the new capitalistic system. Their feast to give thanks for their success with the new system and their continued existence – born out of the fruit of their labor – was the first Thanksgiving Dinner.

When we celebrate Thanksgiving, we celebrate life, we celebrate our exceptional nation, we celebrate capitalism, and we enjoy the fruits of our labor.

Presidential Thanksgiving Proclamations

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA – A PROCLAMATION

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor – and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be – That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks – for his kind care and protection of the People of this country previous to their becoming a Nation – for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war –for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed – for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions – to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually – to render our national government a blessing to all the People, by constantly being a government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed – to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord – To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and Us – and generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

GO. WASHINGTON. 

 

Proclamation 6073 – THANKSGIVING DAY, 1989

November 17, 1989

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, A PROCLAMATION

On Thanksgiving Day, we Americans pause as a Nation to give thanks for the freedom and prosperity with which we have been blessed by our Creator. Like the pilgrims who first settled in this land, we offer praise to God for His goodness and generosity and rededicate ourselves to lives of service and virtue in His sight.

This annual observance of Thanksgiving was a cherished American tradition even before our first President, George Washington, issued the first Presidential Thanksgiving proclamation in 1789. In his first Inaugural Address, President Washington observed that “No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible Hand which conducts the affairs of men more than those of the United States.” He noted that the American people – blessed with victory in their fight for Independence and with an abundance of crops in their fields – owed God “some return of pious gratitude.” Later, in a confidential note to his close advisor, James Madison, he asked “should the sense of the Senate be taken on … a day of Thanksgiving?” George Washington thus led the way to a Joint Resolution of Congress requesting the President to set aside “a day of public Thanksgiving and Prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal Favors of Almighty God.”

Through the eloquent words of President Washington’s initial Thanksgiving proclamation – the first under the Constitution – we are reminded of our dependence upon our Heavenly Father and of the debt of gratitude we owe to Him. “It is the Duty of all Nations,” wrote Washington, “to acknowledge the Providence of almighty God, to obey his Will, to be grateful for his Benefits, and humbly to implore His Protection and Favor.”

President Washington asked that on Thanksgiving Day the people of the United States:

unite in rendering unto [God] our sincere and humble Thanks for his kind Care and Protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation; for … the great degree of Tranquility, Union and Plenty which we have since enjoyed; for … the civil and religious Liberty with which we are blessed, and … for all the great and various Favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

Two hundred years later, we continue to offer thanks to the Almighty – not only for the material prosperity that our Nation enjoys, but also for the blessings of peace and freedom. Our Nation has no greater treasures than these.

As we pause to acknowledge the kindnesses God has shown to us – and, indeed, His gift of life itself – we do so in a spirit of humility as well as gratitude. When the United States was still a fledgling democracy, President Washington asked the American people to unite in prayer to the “great Lord and ruler of Nations,” in order to:

beseech him to pardon our national and other Transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private Stations, to perform our several and relative Duties properly and punctually; to render our national Government a blessing to all the People, by constantly being a Government of wise, just and constitutional Laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations … and to bless them with good Government, peace and Concord.

Today, we, too, pause on Thanksgiving with humble and contrite hearts, mindful of God’s mercy and forgiveness and of our continued need for His protection and guidance. On this day, we also remember that one gives praise to God not only through prayers of thanksgiving, but also through obedience to His commandments and service to others, especially those less fortunate than ourselves.

While some Presidents followed Washington’s precedent, and some State Governors did as well, President Lincoln – despite being faced with the dark specter of civil war – renewed the practice of proclaiming a national day of Thanksgiving. This venerable tradition has been sustained by every President since then, in times of strife as well as times of peace and prosperity.

Today, we continue to offer thanks and praise to our Creator, that “Great Author of every public and private good,” for the many blessings He has bestowed upon us. In so doing, we recall the timeless words of the 100th Psalm:

Serve the Lord with gladness: come before His presence with singing.

Know ye that the Lord He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name.

For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endureth to all generations.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim Thursday, November 23, 1989, as a National Day of Thanksgiving, and I call upon the American people to gather together in homes and places of worship on that day of thanks to affirm by their prayers and their gratitude the many blessings God has bestowed upon us and our Nation.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this seventeenth day of November, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eighty-nine, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and fourteenth.

GEORGE BUSH

Hallelujah is a Hebrew word meaning “Praise God”

by Genevieve

Listening to the Hallelujah Chorus always stirs the essence of Thanksgiving. Although the importance of this holiday may have become muted by the crimes against humanity and catastrophes that have become almost predictable in our everyday lives, the sanctity and spirit of celebration for our blessings are resilient and durable. The magnitude and consequence are validated by the humble recognition and acknowledgement in our daily lives.

I have selected several quotations that highlight the fundamental spirit of Thanksgiving.

“We are so taken up with the affairs of the present that we don’t have time to give thanks for blessings of the past.” John A. Broadus

“Thanksgiving comes to us out of the prehistoric dimness, universal to all ages and all faiths.  At whatever straws we must grasp, there is always a time for gratitude and new beginnings.”  J. Robert Moski

“Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow.”  Edward Sandford Martin

 

 

 “An optimist is a person who starts a new diet on Thanksgiving Day.” Irv Kupcinet

 

“Thanksgiving is America’s national chow-down feast, the one occasion each year when gluttony becomes a patriotic duty.”  Michael Dresser

“Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday.  People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year.  And then discover once a year is way too often.”  Johnny Carson

“On Thanksgiving Day, all over America, families sit down to dinner at the same moment – halftime.”  Author Unknown

“Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don’t unravel.”  Author Unknown

Divining Thanksgiving

by Sandy Stringfellow

Several weeks ago my youngest sister was killed, along with her husband, in Tampa, Florida, when a middle age male driver, with a medical condition resulting in a long history of losing consciousnessWebster and Nancy T-boned her minivan (passenger side), mid-section, at approximately seventy-plus miles per hour on Hillsborough Avenue.

His late model Dodge pickup truck struck with such force that it was propelled into the air and landed on top of another vehicle coming through the intersection. It then bounced off that vehicle roof and hood, landing in an upright position. The pickup driver was unhurt, and went to work the following day by taking a city bus. The driver of the pickup has been involved in eighteen vehicle-related accidents over the years, and recently had his driver’s license reinstated after having been suspended for six years.

Their granddaughter, three, was in the back seat, and taken to the hospital in critical condition. Most miraculously, it appears she will make a full recovery. The doctors said her progress is inexplicable, and believe they have misdiagnosed the seriousness of her brain injury, as she is light years ahead of where she should be considering the amount of cerebral swelling from the impact.

Nancy and Webster were the sweetest, caring people you could ever meet. Nancy taught high school math in Tampa, and was loved and admired by students and faculty. There are scores of people praying for Kaylee, her granddaughter, and I believe that has made all the difference, and also why her doctors cannot provide a satisfactory medical explanation for her rapid recovery. Your thoughts and prayers will provide additional healing strength, and are greatly appreciated.

My Thanksgiving this year will be somber by comparison to those of the past; more introspective, and, strangely, more “thankful.” As with so many others, I’ve been caught up in the pace and intensity of our “modern life,” and remiss in appreciating the gifts with which we are blessed daily.

It should remain, for all of us, an unquestioningly admirable expression of wisdom to make each day count by keeping our moments filled with love and good cheer, a perpetual thankfulness for family, friends, and neighbors, as well as for the opportunities we’ve been given and the willfulness with which we may affect a positive outcome in all that we seek to accomplish.

Most important of all, perhaps, is remembering to sustain our appreciation for the unseen and the unknown; there is, quite clearly, much more to life than the superficial and cosmetic components of our daily existence that we so frequently acknowledge as constituting our definitive realities while awake. To quote C.S. Lewis, “You don’t have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.”

God already knows everything, and the Lord works in mysterious ways.

Collapse

by Robert Arvay 

I struggle to find the right words here. How do I say this without coming off as a ‘doom and gloomer’? Or is it that I have finally become one? 

Personally, my mood is upbeat and optimistic. But maybe reality, just has not yet hit me. Whoa. It just hit me. 

A recent news story revealed that just about every single member of Congress is, in one way or another, “on the take.” Sarah Palin alluded to this in a recent comment, when she remarked that politicians go to Washington DC with average means, but within a short time, they amass large amounts of wealth. 

She’s right. No, she’s only partly right, because her remarks fall far, far short of the actual truth. 

Politicians have access to literally billions upon billions of taxpayer dollars. Having access does not mean putting our money directly into their own wallets. They don’t have to embezzle the funds. Instead, they just direct the cash flow to their friends, family, and accomplices. We have all seen how Obama has rewarded his political supporters with our money. And then, in whatever form of payback they can get away with, they reward him. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. 

The latest allegation concerns insider trading, an illegal act that can easily make hundreds of thousands of dollars (or more) in one day for a congressman. But wait. Did I say “illegal?” Here is the sick part. It’s illegal if you or I do it. But if a Congressman does it, it is perfectly within the law. Yes, that law, the one that the congressmen themselves make for US to live by. 

In one reported case, a senator was crafting legislation that would build a highway and vast infrastructure across a plot of land, all at taxpayer expense. But before the owner could get wind of the pending project, the senator bought the land from the owner, paying far below what the owner could have gotten had he, too, had access to the insider information. The senator then resold the land at a huge profit. In short, he ripped off the taxpayers and the land owner, and got away with it, because it was all within the law. And who crafts the law? 

Again, I say, this is only the tip. Congressmen have known for many decades how the system can be abused. They have known all along about the rampant fraud against the public. But they never put a stop to it, because they were the ones profiting from the abuse. 

We are no longer a republic. We no longer govern ourselves. I know I sound like a far left wing loon, but I am not overstating the facts when I allege that the halls of Congress, and the agencies of government, are infested with thieves and scoundrels. That is not just rhetoric. It is the sad truth. 

And as bad as it is, it might all be somehow tolerable if only we were governed well. But we’re not. The thieves are so busy looting the public treasury that they barely have time to lift their heads up out of the toilet to look around and see that they are literally destroying the nation. 

They have run us into debt so deep that it can never be repaid. And it’s not just the debt. While we debate how many billions to cut from national defense, China is gearing its military for war. China has been warned to stop their cyber-attacks against our government and industry, and what has been their response? They all but sneer at our paltry protests. The whole time, they use our interest payments to buy missiles, and aim them at us. Five, four, three…. 

I must cut short my rant, because there is not enough space here to make all the accusations that should be made. 

Suffice it to say that we are beyond elections. The big labor unions on the far left have already said as much, and as much as I hate to admit it, they are right. They are threatening to break skulls if they do not get their cut of the pie. Elections mean nothing to those who can wield such power, as do those with access to the government. 

But guess what folks. While we argue over how to slice the pie, the Chinese are going to eat the whole thing. The republic is finished. Does that make me a ‘doom and gloomer’? 

No. Because I still believe that in the end, justice will prevail, and God will rule. But in the meantime, let’s not forget that Israel was sold into slavery for seventy years before God restored it. Weep for the children, America. They have been sold out.

Obama’s Ludicrous Comparison of OWS with the Tea Party Movement

by Jim Mullen 

President Barack Obama, and his comrade, the not-so-eloquent, Joe “the Bumbler,” Biden, joined other left-wing Democrats in a ludicrous comparison between the Occupy Wall Street hoodlums and the TeaJim Mullen Party movement. One should find this an interesting and puzzling analogy for the country’s top two office holders. 

In a country founded on Constitutional principles of limited federal government this administration and the Democratic Party aligns itself with radical anarchists, Marxists, and admitted communists. Their vocal approval places them in lockstep with a lawless group espousing destruction of an economic and political system the world envied and held in awe for centuries. It is assuredly a system rewarding its people when they avail themselves of the opportunity for success. 

Incredibly, this President is advocating in the strongest terms, destruction of the nation’s deeply held beliefs in freedom to pursue happiness and wealth using the free-enterprise system. 

The American people hear their own leaders draw a parallel or real-life connection between mobs of rioters and the Tea Party movement. A movement advocating a return to constitutionally mandated limited government, reduced spending, and lower taxes. Furthermore, they demand freedom from an ever-expanding tyrannical government. Most Tea Party members believe in a stronger free-enterprise system that operates with less interference from Washington. 

Conversely, the Occupy Wall Street movement abhors the U. S. Constitution, wants federal control of all businesses, increased spending and taxes, and demands governmental control and redistribution of income and wealth, or Social Justice. To them, entrepreneurship, and capitalism are mortal enemies of “the people” and they advocate strongly for its destruction. 

In a strange twist of irony, Barack Obama and the Democrats led the staged bailouts of Wall Street and the corporations. If not invented by Obama, his Crony Capitalism certainly refined it to new purity in the last three years. It begins and ends with millions of dollars sliding between greasy palms and essentially begs government to pick winners and demean losers in the marketplace. Obama’s feigned revulsion of Wall Street belies the record contributions he collected from his Wall Street cronies – against whom the OWS groups are wailing. 

The Tea Party demonstrators marched peacefully, carrying signs clearly outlining their demands for a return to constitutional principles. They registered disgust with the unconstitutional bailouts of selected corporations and banking institutions. Additionally, they protested enslavement of our country by the huge deficit spending programs. 

The useful idiots of organized labor and the avowed Marxists and communists spout their corrupt ideas and ideals from tents pitched on private and public property. Numbers swell daily from the ranks of perverts, sex offenders and other losers drawn from the dregs of society. 

These repugnant groups highlight their class and intelligence by defecating and urinating on police cars, the U. S. flag, and on public streets. The world is their garbage can and personal toilet. Rape, pillaging, burning, and interruption of commerce are commonplace in many of the OWS groups. The rage reflected in the faces of these crowds is not sorrow for a loss of freedom, but rather, fury at freedom itself. 

Conversely, the Tea Parties return areas cleaner than they find them, and for the most part police their own ranks and disavow kooks and fringe elements. Moreover, their ranks deeply mourn the loss of liberty. 

Although the targets of the radical’s rage are against all of the successful, the producers, and the job creators; Jews are the bulls-eyes. The anti-Semitism is rampant in the midst of these protests and sounds eerily similar to the same vile, hate-filled rhetoric that swept Europe and the United States in the 1930’s. The President’s daily rants about the evil rich help feed this sentiment. 

The Tea Parties, accused by Democrats of being racist because of their opposition to Barack Obama’s policies, are big supporters of black conservative politicians and writers. Meanwhile, black Democrats like Maxine Walters disparage and manifest their contempt by calling black conservatives, Oreos. Others spout conservative blacks have “lost their identities.” Liberals expose their racist fangs every time they contemptibly accuse black conservatives of “acting white.” If “acting white” is bad in the feeble mind of Maxine Walters, how bad is “being white?” Her bellowing for the Tea Party to go to hell and calling them racists, tell us all we need to know. 

The liberal media adopts this band of no-hopers as they do every left-wing group and every Marxist idea. Each story places a positive spin by casting these mobs in the roles as victims of freedom and loveable-losers in life’s lottery, not as the losers they are. They refer to them as peaceful demonstrators instead of rioters, while Tea Partiers suffer demonization and derision with nearly every report painting them as radical extremists. 

This administration and their fellow Democrats use the OWS protests to deflect criticism and cast blame for the failure of their big-government programs. Economically unsophisticated and uneducated protesters are unaware their real enemies are in the White House and Congress. 

Obama and his “tax-paying-challenged,” Treasury Secretary, Timothy Geithner, demanded bailouts of Wall Street, financial institutions, and corporations. 

When Democrats took control of Congress January 4, 2007, the national debt stood at $8.67 trillion. It now stands near $15 trillion. Unemployment was 4.6%; it is now over 9%. The Republican-led House of Representatives passes jobs bills and they remain in Harry Reid’s big, ho-hum basket. The enemies to job creation are obvious. 

The rioter’s rant of “corporate and personal greed” is laughable. These losers want a seat at America’s buffet and learned from early childhood an entitlement to anything that others have earned. Their incessant whining about their own shortcomings and then clambering for the income and wealth of others is the very epitome of greed. An ideology of victimhood and small-minded bitterness drives these people, fueled and sparked by a lifetime indoctrination to place all their eggs in mega-government’s basket. 

When these OWS groups stand at the bottom of life’s ladder, looking upward at those who worked hard, made good decisions, and climbed to the height of their abilities, they feel nothing but envy and hatred. It’s easier for losers to ask Daddy Government for food, clothing, shelter, and education, and Nanny Government to kiss their booboos and tell them how wonderful they are. It is time for Daddy and Nanny to declare, “The free ride is over.” Now is the time for an attitude adjustment. Get out, get to work, and personally experience the joys and hardships of life; in other words, grow up. Wasting time standing on the street corner of life with your hand out, doesn’t make one worthy, it makes one a leech on the back of society.
