Just Who is it that’s Racist?

Sometimes, people have problems with definitions.  Sometimes folks like to redefine words to suit their purposes.  If things keep going the way they are, the dems will have the entire dictionary rewritten before the beginning of the next decade.

First off, we are no longer permitted to use the term illegal alien, even though that is the legal term.  They might not be documented, but they are definitely illegal if they enter the country illegally.

Now, it would seem that something is bipartisan if they can perform a survey and find one republican in favor of one of their harebrained ideas.

Over the last few years, they have found a favorite term, racism.  Indeed, they have found it and a few other words you might find in your thesaurus.  They throw the words around to the point that the words have become meaningless.  On the other hand, they just might mean anything.

Therefore, for those interested, let me provide some proper examples.

  1. Certainly, Hitler was racist.  The fact is; though, that Stalin killed at least as many Jews and his name is rarely brought up.  After all, to the communist, Stalin is a hero.  Indeed, the Russians were racist toward the Jews long before Hitler arrived on the scene.
  2. An obscure woman by the name of Margaret Sanger was in favor of aborting all black babies.  If you look up the word infanticide, you just might find a picture of the woman.  She was the one who established Family Planning for the sole purpose of ridding the world of “the inferior black race.”  Today, they deny such ideas but they locate 70% of their clinics inside predominately Black neighborhoods.  I don’t think that is by accident.
  3. Anyone who uses people of other races as pawns is clearly a racist.  To them, people are simply objects to be used and cast aside until they are needed again.  This is a good description of the dems.  They not only use and abuse African Americans but also Hispanic and Latinos.  I assure you.  If it did not suit their purposes to leave the boarder open, they wouldn’t.
    Because they want the votes, and because they believe that the Hispanics and Latinos will vote democrat, they have no hesitation using them as pawns.  The fact that some die on the way does not in the least bother them.  The fact that most of the women are raped on the way is no concern of theirs.  The millions that go to work in sweat shops and brothels do not even register on their empathy meter.
  4. The worst of all, every time they don’t like someone for anything, they call him a racist.  That dilutes the word.  It changes the meaning.  It makes it so the true racist is ignored.
  5. And now, even now, people are making every attempt they know how to eliminate the Jewish homeland and the Jews are being painted as the guilty party.  The Jews are called racist and a few other names I’d just as soon not repeat.

Just maybe this would be a good time for the African Americans, the Latinos and the Hispanics to open their eyes and see that they are being used as pawns.  I assure you, if and when the dems do away with The Constitution, they will no longer have any need for minorities and then it will be too late.  They will secure their power and establish something that looks very much like Venezuela.  Then, they will complete the border wall and use it to ensure that no one leaves.

A Few Redemptions of the White Man

If we listen to some, the white man, all white men are the worst creatures to walk the earth. However, let us remember a few redeeming actions of men who were white.

  1. Though he was not successful, Thomas Jefferson tried to make the black people equal under the constitution. He was forced into compromise in order that the revolution might succeed.
  2. During all the years of slavery, white people, under danger of being imprisoned, moved thousands of slaves into Canada. It was not enough to move them into the North. Due to a Supreme Court decision, slaves that were caught in the North had to be returned to the South. The folks who took part in this were white and were referred to as the underground railroad. Moreover, most of them were Christian.
  3. Let’s not forget that the vast majority of those who fought for the North were White. I will admit, many were conscripted. Many had other reasons for which they fought. Yet, they fought and died; and made the black man free.
  4. John F Kennedy, a white man, originated the equal rights act. At the time they voted it into law, those in the Senate and the house were all white. As an aside, this was in spite of the democrats efforts to stop it.

We white folks aren’t aren’t perfect, individually and collectively. However, there are many of us who have tried. That we should be collectively convicted is in itself a crime. I must admit, I have had my moments that I am not so proud of. On the other side of the coin, I have met some men who were black that that had nothing but contempt for me, though they never knew me.

Maybe one of these days, men will learn to look beyond the color of the skin, as Martin Luther King dreamed of. However, at this point, it is certainly not true. It is improper to give one person any privileges over any other person because of the color of his skin, regardless of his or her color. It all leads to disaster. Either way, it will cause anger even if it is not manifested. It can and has led to violence even when there was no provocation.

In the end, there are no magic wands that someone can just wave over the land and all the prejudice will go away. However, there are those who want to take advantage of the natural divisions: black, white; rich, poor; man, woman; Irish, Italian and Asian. I am sure I left some out. Beware of those who know of these weaknesses which we have have created.

Some seek to riches. Some seek power. On the other hand, some of our our opponents seek to use these weaknesses to overtake us and remove our freedoms. Some even want to make our country part of theirs.

Even if there is no outside influence, our civilization will tear itself asunder if there is racism. There will always be racism when there are those who encourage racism for their own purposes. Martin Luther King insisted on non-violent demonstration. Today, it would seem violent demonstration is the only kind. I suspect Martin Luther King would have no part of it.

Personally, I believe it is about time for all of us to respect each other; but then, I have always been a little bit of an idealist.

I Did Not Watch the Biden Show

I saw no purpose in watching the address by Biden. I guess it was a state of the union, but I don’t know. No one that I know of said as much. I guess if it wasn’t the state of the union address, Biden needs to write a paper to Congress. The Constitution does require some kind of report you know.

I thought about calling this post, “Lies on Lies.” Only I think I used a similar title before. However, I think the title is more applicable here. Biden told the lies and then the major media told the lies on the lies.

How is it that I know? I heard excerpts. I really don’t know who the bigger liars were between Biden and the major news media. Some of the stuff the media said, really? Can they really in honesty say how fabulous that speech was? I have seen better by eighth-graders. In fact, when I was going through instructor training, one of of my fellow students was an officer from Peru. Understandably, he had an accent. Yet his presentation was far better and more interesting than Biden’s

Then, all of a sudden, there are dozens of white newscasters that know more about bias against blacks than a man who was actually born black. I don’t know where he was born, but he lives in South Carolina now. That was right in the middle of it all. I think Tim Scott knows far more about being brought up black in the South, much more than Joy Bahar. I don’t get it. Just what school did she go to or training did she undergo that she is going to explain it all to Sen. Scott? How is it that she understands and he doesn’t? How is it that she can say she has experienced the atrocities he did first hand.

The thing is, it is much more than lying. It is plain outright stupidity as well.

Then again, it just might be that someone is putting those words in the mouths of those news broadcasters. It just might be that they have been told, “If you want to keep your job, you say what you are told to say.” It sounds a lot like Pravda. It sounds a lot like organized lying.

One For All

While I was going through Marine boot camp, they had an interesting way of punishing us. When one of us messed up, we all got punished. On the other hand, when someone did well, we all reaped the reward, though the the rewards were few.

It sounds unfair, but it did help to build teamwork. I quickly found, that as a team, we could accomplish far more than we could as a bunch of individuals. Though I never saw combat, it was easy to see the benefit of everyone watching out for each other. I also realized the importance to be able to trust each other. I mean, you just know the other marine is going to do his part of the job because that was how we were trained.

Still if I mess up, why should eighty other guys suffer for it? It just doesn’t seem right. Mostly, I would expect that most people, especially those who have had no military training, agree.

Yet, in our country, that is the way we live. We have a couple of million people in the military and we all benefit from the security. Maybe one out of a thousand, maybe less, volunteers to risk his life in law enforcement and we all benefit by living in relative safety. A small minority of folks agree to work their fingers to the bone and we all eat well. If we don’t buy the food in a store, we go to the wide variety of restaurants. There too, we benefit from the hardworking souls. I know. I worked in one and it is hard work.

Personally, I have lived a blessed life, even during my time in the Marines. Okay, I walked a few guard post and I spent my time on mess duty. However, other than a year in Nam, I had it pretty good. Even while I was in Nam, I had three squares a day. Though I had to walk a ways outdoors, the shower wasn’t that far. I even lived in an 8 by 8 foot area set aside for me. Never once did I have to go running through a rice paddy and I never dodged bullets. On the other hand, I did have a few mortars fell uncomfortably too close.

I never finished college but I benefited from the doctors who did. I don’t know how to build or maintain cars but I have two reliable ones sitting out in our driveway.

Is it really so horrible to expect me or any citizen in this country to present an ID to vote. I mean, most of us gained that right by accident. Is it so awful to expect others to respect and obey the law. I mean most of us have the privileges of freedom bestowed upon us at birth. Those who have legally immigrated did not have to risk life and limb, though some did.

And it is true, every time someone does something wrong, we all suffer. Invariably, many of the laws that cause us grief were made for the 10% who have no respect for others or their country.

I would like a law requiring that Congressmen from both houses to live by all the laws they create for the rest of us. However, you and I know that will not happen. Because of their position they get the best of everything. They made Obamacare, yet we pay for their healthcare. There is no way on this earth that they would live under the health plan that they forced on the rest of us.

But then, that is the way it is in a land that has royalty. It is one for all, but then again, it is all for them. They will not build a wall to keep out those who don’t belong, but they build walls all over DC to protect themselves, to the inconvenience of others.

When the China virus went on the rampage, not one of them went without a paycheck, while others by the millions went into unemployment. And now, our new king, he had destroyed what good was done.

It has been said many times, the democrats and republicans need to get together and solve the border problems. They are getting together…to keep us from closing the border President Trump tried to maintain the border, but at each turn of events, someone stood in the way, and they weren’t all democrat.

We have a certain number of people that immigrate each year legally. If we were to totally shut the borders tomorrow, it would be twenty or more years before we caught up with the legal quotas. But the rich want cheap labor and the dems want to turn the whole country blue. Therefore the rich cooperate with the dems and, of course, as in my basic training, we all suffer for it. We all suffer for what the ten percent does. After all, the ten percent is really for themselves. Ultimately, it is all about control.

The Goals of the Dems

  1. They obliterated the border security.
  2. They Have driven us well toward national bankruptcy plans to repay their contributors and leftist supporters.
  3. They allowed countless diseased people from all over the earth while managing to keep people arriving legally at airports under quarantine.
  4. The governors of four major states have managed to cause the deaths of unknown hundreds, thousands by putting diseased people into nursing homes.
  5. They have kept our schools and businesses closed for almost a year. Moreover, they hope to elongate that as much as possible.
  6. They caused at least one major plant to move to Mexico and, naturally, their plans call for many more. In this case it benefited Ford. Those that worked at the plant, not so much. To be sure, there will be no apologies or explanations. At best, they tell them to find jobs making solar panels, or maybe windmills.
  7. With all the illegals entering the country they have managed to increase the unemployment. On the other hand, they are decreasing wages. Cheaper to pay a Latino to clean hotel rooms than American citizens…of any ethnicity.
  8. They have just about ruined New York. Everyone who can is headed south, where the governors know how to run things. Worse, they have destroyed the tourist trade. Everyone knows that if they go to the Big Apple, they won’t be able to find a place to sit down and have a pizza. Some people are stuck in New York as value of their property has bottomed out.

It would seem that the dems managed this all in less than two months. That is fast than I expected. Given three more years, who knows what kind of things they will attain.

It is a fortunate thing that President Trump called for Project Warp Speed (the nine month development of vaccines). Had he not, the dems would still be fumbling around through the red tape and not even Biden or Harris would have received a shot for at least two more years. By that time, many more would have died and the economy would be totally in the tank. That would make things just right for the dems. The Chinese Communists would be able to just march into this country and we would be able to do little or nothing about it. Moreover, they would likely make their approach from Mexico. They would have no need for a sea landing.

Cuba, Before and After

Many folks don’t remember Cuba before Castro. I do. That dates me. I was young in the day and I remember studying it all in school as current events. Batista was a horrible dictator. He treated people very badly so it did not take a lot for Castro to build himself an army under the aegis of a new free land.

Things quickly changed after Castro took the reins of the island country. Suddenly it was a communist dictatorship. Now, the question does come up from time to time, were they better under Batista or Castro. I answer the question with one observation. They didn’t like Batista. He was horrible. However, it was only after Castro that they started trying to reach the US on anything that would float. They fled the place as if their lives depended on it. In many cases, it did.

I don’t know about you, but this tells me it was worse under Castro. That tells us all something about communism that we should all take to heart. If the communists take the rein here, there will be nowhere to go, except maybe Brazil. Brazil is a lot farther away.

I think it would be better to keep the commies from taking over in the first place, and the second and third place too.

Ignore the Future

A look at priorities

Any halfway decent chess player will tell you that it is the long sighted player who is does well.  The good players will normally think at least 8 moves ahead.

Currently, I play games of Free Space on my computer and I have been playing it for years.  Again, I have found, if you want to win consistently, you need to plan far ahead.  If don’t you will frequently lose.  Indeed, the moves that appear the most obvious will frequently lead you to a dead end.  Those moves that seem the least redeeming open up into wins.

The same can be said about many things.  Certainly, none of us really wants to put our shoulder to grindstone and study in school.  Yet, consistently, those who study the most frequently get the best paying jobs.

Yet, it surprises me as I look out into society today and see all those who have spent their lives studying and accumulating knowledge making very short sighted decisions.

They put a super priority on global warming when there are far more important things.  I assure you, if China takes control of this world, going green will be the least of anyone’s concerns.  Yet businesses make nice with China, knowing that, in the long run, it will end in disaster.

Think!

Why is it that China sells steel and aluminum at a loss?  Why do they go into backward countries and set up infrastructure systems and provide low interest and no interest loans?

The answer is simple.  They want world domination.  And today, guess what?  They have American, so-called geniuses helping them, willingly, even gladly.  Some of them even are taking part in the takeover.  Some of the American multi-billionaires help in financing the takeover.

That’s stupid.  In a real communist society, there are no millionaires, let alone billionaires.  In theory no one gets any more; no one gets any less regardless of what they do or don’t do.

It would seem, very few geniuses these days want to look past the next few days.  So, like the beginner chess player, we don’t ever look past the next move.  Like the novice politician, we never look past the next month, let alone the next year.  The businessman never looks past his profits.  Tomorrow is everything and we ignore the future.

The Lord is My Shepherd

The opening words of Psalm 23 can be some of the most comforting words ever written. To be sure, to know that the Lord is watching over us like a shepherd is to know that we are in his absolute care.

To be sure the question comes to mind who are his sheep? We know who the Shepherd is but who belongs to His flock?

From what I understand, David was the writer of the psalm. He certainly was one of God’s sheep. The Bible makes that very clear. On the other hand, he had sons that were not likely part of the flock. One son raped a daughter. The other killed another son and one of his sons tried to kill David and take his kingdom. (Those are only the ones I can remember offhand) I’m not going to go out on a limb and say that any one of them was not part of the flock, but it would seem so.

The fact is, many who think they are part of the flock aren’t. If Jesus is not your Shepherd, the above words are do not apply to you. Indeed, they should bring you fear. You see you have a choice. You can choose to be part of His flock. On the other hand you can chose not to in his flock. Therefore, the entirety of the 23rd psalm does not pertain to you. It’s not that you will die but that you have no life in you now. Until you receive the Lord Jesus into your heart and accept him as your savior, His life (spiritual) is not in you. Being as God is the source of all life, if you do not have God, you are without life (spiritually).

If you die (physically) without Jesus as your savior, it is final. Not only will you be without life, you also will be without hope.

If you cannot truly say that the Lord is your Shepherd, maybe you need to seek the Lord, while you are able.

As an aside: Communism and Christianity cannot coexist. Hence, communists fight to disprove the existence of God, this while they try to claim some similarities with Christianity.

This Time, There’s a Difference

There have been disagreements before. There have been battles between dems and republicans since the end of the Civil War. However there is a difference this time.

Always before, there was one agreement between them. This time, the dems are anxiously trying to do away with The Constitution. This time, they want to so away with The Bill of Rights. You see they have a reason. They know that communism and The Constitution cannot coexist. At best, their hope is to make our form of government an element history.

Then again, I suspect they don’t even want that. Their hope is to also destroy history.

Then again, communism is just a distraction. Their real goal is to form a world wide dictatorship. Until there is but one dictator, there will be “wars and rumors of wars.” No one dictator will settle for a part of the world. They will want it all.
