 Short and Sweet:   Border War

Should it come to it, I will gladly consider it my patriotic duty to take up arms in a fight to protect the USA from the continued invasion across our southern border. There is no need to discuss this illegal invasion issue further.  The opinions and the battle lines are well-formed.  I vehemently believe in the traditional American way of life.  I believe in our Constitution, and demand that it be upheld – with blood – if necessary.  I will do whatever it takes to protect my family’s well-being.  Our country’s destruction is taking place right before our eyes!  Those who enable this illegal invasion from the south, (and in doing such, are recklessly assisting  in the planned destruction of the #USA) are now doing so at their own peril.  I have absolutely no qualms about taking part in live-fire battle with these traitor enablers, whomever they are, in order to protect The United States of America.

(This writing is strictly opinion – and I’m damned proud of it.)

The Coming Fight For American Freedom

We are the future of America….

You may realize that we are entering into a political fight like none other in our lifetime.  You are likely concerned about what the future holds for America.  Like you, I am worried where the USA is headed.  Consider me just a common citizen who is very, very frightened over what I see going on around me.  So frightened, that I feel a need “write out” about what scares me.  I would claim insight and knowledge in doing so, but more likely, this sharing effort is based solely on instinct.

Have you seen the signs that this political fight will more akin to war, rather than simply a normal election cycle?  Do you realize that your well being, livelihood or very life may be at stake?  Are you prepared to see our country fall the way of 1934 Germany?  Realize, that the current Administration is already attacking our USA on a hundred different fronts simultaneously.  “They” have brazenly told us that we will be “dictated to”.  For instance, Obama’s friend – Zillionaire George Soros has been quoted as saying that he is devoting his life to the “destruction of America”.  Obama’s longtime Pasteur, the Rev Wright has preached: “God Damn America”.  Obama is a known “social organizer”.  Obama’s recent insulting speech at the border shows that he ridicules the very Constitution he swore to uphold.  Obama’s appointing of a “Czar Army” is in violation of the Constitution, yet he dismisses any protest as not being worth his time.  And on, and on.  I am sure you can think of many more examples of his “small irregularities” that do not “directly affect me” types of things.  Oh, but they do.

Once there was a people who believed that all “this will pass”, “they will tire of it”, and “all will return to normal”.  What followed were the forced-labor camps and genocide in Europe, as history attests.  Europe, – in fact – the world, did not believe that a madman of small stature would boldly attempt to take over (against all odds) his country, and drive it into tyranny. Yet, because of his boundless ambition, as well as the lackadaisical attitudes of those watching, he did /just/ that, and he went on to threaten half of the world.   As I see it, and from what I’ve seen, we will not be heard by this Administration, no matter how just our cause, or how strong we protest.  “They” have already taken off the hockey gloves and told us it is “game on”.  Be very concerned – no – be afraid.

But what can we do?  The answer is clear.  We do just as our strong predecessors did at the creation of America – we unite.  No, not necessarily by political party, but as a group of law abiding, God-fearing Americans.  We, who believe what the Declaration of Independence stood for.  We, who want our inspired Constitution followed.  Remember that we first – are individuals.  We must not put our fates into the hands of politicians.  Although many of them mean well, lack of positive results is the usual outcome.  Some use the excuse that “their hands are tied”.  Some are simply incompetent, or worse, they are “wind sniffers” who blend in with their peers.  I consider them cowards and, yes, traitors.  On a daily basis, they do not uphold the oath-of-office they swore to uphold.  And the worst among these, care only for their own profit and fame – at our cost.  Remember, if a politician is doing nothing to help you – then he/she is against you.  It is /that/ simple.

What then,  must we do in order to stem our march over a cliff?  DO NOT IDLE.  Without wasting another second, we should to begin to take action.  We need to take our collective “individualism” and unite with other dedicated American citizens to form a larger and larger body with like values and purpose.  We must demand to have America returned to us.  We need to “read the riot act” to those representing us.  Make them know that we are their employer, and they are not being supported out of kindness.  Tell them that we have rights, and they, along with us, have a duty to preserve those rights.  Regardless, do not rely on a favorable 2012 election result  to solve our problems.  It will take a lot of continued effort to put America back on the tracks.

So, become a group – and prepare to battle back – “measure for measure”, whatever it takes.  Where, when, or how we will come together, is not clear at the moment.   But as surely as green grass grows – with one strong blade next to another, and another – we must become a true “Grass Roots” force, ready to take action.  We should follow our favored ‘social outlets’ and blogs.  Obviously, do not trust the news media for more than weather reports.  They will either be in lockstep with “His Administration”, or they will be afraid to “ruffle feathers”.  We need to become creative in how we correspond, and how we source our news.  Have faith, and realize that none of us is alone in this.  This is our country.  We have a right to live here with dignity, and with liberty.  We are a good and patriotic people who love the United States of America,  and we shall prevail.

This writing is intended as a part of that mentioned ‘social outlet’ – Please refer others.

CEOs: 200x overpaid

Filed under: opinion — Penrod @ 12:44 AM
Tags: , , , , ,

Recently, I overheard a (Fox News?) program as it referred to something  purportedly said by Ben Afleck  (paraphrasing):

“There was a time when CEOs made 9x the average person’s salary.  Now the average CEO makes 200x what the average person makes.”

This blurb was like a cry in the night.  Do people hear and understand was was said? Does anyone pay attention? This type of situation is simply revolting!  For health concerns, I tried to immediately stop my juices from over-boiling.  But it was no use – so here we go………….

Are (given the above quirp) CEOs 200x better than the average person today, or is the distribution of weath horribly skewed?  (When I say “CEOs” I refer to them in general, and the system they control, or of which thare are a part.)

And don’t, right away give me that: “Well, they earned it, so they have it” kind of stuff.  If the playing field was as equal today as it was, say in the post WWII years of the 1950s, then an argument could be made to that way of thinking.

But, since those “golden days” when people had morals, and life was as fair as could be expected, the greedy decision-makers did as they did best: they decided…..then they created ways of increasing their positions, at the very cost of the innocents who only wanted to do their honest days’ work for an honest wage.  The CEOs stole from them! Period!

They went into partnerships with overseas concerns.  They looked for the cheapest possible cost for the maximum possible gain.  All the time they were not considering “where they lived” or what would be the “long term outcome”, or “is it okay to stab your own country in the back”?  Let’s face it. The CEOs acted simply as traitors to the United States of America.

Am I as a singlular person bitter?  Hell yes I am!  I worked hard all of my life, and did so in a way that an average person might reasonably consider that his/her work was to be enough for his/her fair share in the good that America offered.  This share, in an amount that befits his/her fair status in life.  But being (in effect) raped was never expected by those who honestly went about their daily work in an honest way.
