Stay Away From My Kids!

This will probably be the shortest post I have ever made to my blog, because, essentially, it requires little explanation.


I met with the principal of my kids school and all of their teachers before the new year started. I made them aware that we had already invested in a full curriculum for both of them should homeschooling become necessary at any point in the year. I made the nurses aware that my children were not to receive any H1N1 vaccine or other state-required immunizations. They have a pediatrician for medical interventions [that we approve]. If they require more than a band-aid, I expect to know about it.
When Obama announced his address to school students, my husband and I were at the school the next morning. When the response was not concise, my children fell unfortunately ill of sun- sickness after the long holiday weekend.
Let me be clear.
These children are MINE! They are an extension of my own body and a large portion of my heart. I make the decisions where they are concerned. They are not future taxpayers. They do not hold the concerned interest of the government. Until they turn 18, they are MINE to train, instruct and indoctrinate as I feel is morally proper.
It is my right to convey to my children the values, ideals and world view that I hold. It is not for some vigilante activist "educator" to brainwash my child. Had this mental moron been my sons teacher, teaching him to praise an elected official like a deity, partaking in a piece of propaganda that would have made Hitler blush, I do believe that it might have been the edge of my restraint. I would have done more than remove them from the district. I would have done more than demand answers or consequences. I would have redefined "ballistic"... And I am not the only one who feels that way.

Be [ENTER RACE HERE]and Be Proud?

I know it's not PC to say it, but I am proud to be white. I am also proud to be a woman. I am proud to be a mother. All of which happened by chance, but they make me who I am.

Being proud of my color does not mean that I hate those of other nationalities- just like being proud of my womanhood doesn't mean that I hate men or that as a mother I automatically have animosity for those without children. To make such far-reaching deductions would be inaccurate, sensational, and would, frankly, display a complete lack of common sense.

Which explains perfectly why these comparisons are being used by members of Congress.

Anyone with an ounce of foresight knew this was coming. With the inauguration of Barack Obama as the first black president, the race card has been whipped out each and every time mounting support stands against him. It's pitiful and pathetic, but predictable. Apparently, since Overlord Pelosi hasn't been able to effectively work the un-American angle, now we're moving on to being labeled racists.

Now according to "experts", I am inherently racist because I was born being a skin tone above 'wheat' on the Glidden color palette. However, no one below 'wheat' can be racist against me. These same experts have decided that because I was born without a legacy of subjugation [never mind my Polish heritage...sheesh] I had a greater opportunity for success than a person of color.

I am sorry, is there a United Caucasian College fund? Would that EVER be acceptable?

Did Barack Obama get his scholarship to Oakland Community College? No, it was Harvard. My grades were impressive, but Harvard was never an option for me despite my apparent "ethnic advantage".

Let's be honest about what this is- it's race baiting. In the last few days, we have had a slew of bad behaviors. Serena Williams threat to a line judge, Kanye West's drunken shout out to Beyonce, and Joe Wilson's House outburst. Who gets called racist? The white guy, of course. To fuel the fever, Congressmen equate the lack of severe punishment for Wilson to condoning racism, even making such pathetically opportunistic remarks as Hank Johnson of Georgia who said it would create a revival of the KKK.
"white hoods and white uniforms again and riding through the countryside" D- Hank Johnson, GA

Who are you kidding, Hank? We have all seen that the most dangerous demographic to be right now is a teenage white boy on a school bus full of black kids.

Be black and be proud.

Be white and be proud.

But do something for which PRIDE is deserved. Pride should come from achievement not entitlement.

No Apologies

This country is changed.**

My children are young and still require much instruction about the difference between right and wrong. Courage= good. Apathy= bad. Hard work= good. Laziness= bad. Honesty= good. Deception= bad.

Being forced to watch the President denigrate his office with partisan mud-slinging while he paraded out a festival of falsehoods would make any honest person grind their teeth for wanting to scream "Liar!" One man did it and voiced what millions of us could not. Now, he's facing censure from "the most transparent Congress in history". Perhaps, Madame Speaker meant that the members of Congress would be more transparent about their corruption, nefarious intentions and lust for control. If that's the case, she has more than lived up to her word.

I will not teach my children that it is better to be silent and play nice than to rail against false speakers and risk breaking with decorum. Integrity and intestinal fortitude are in short supply in this country as of late. Rep. Joe Wilson may be from SC and not from KY, but he has represented me better than my own Congressmen and Senators have for a long, long time. I thank him. To those members of Congress that are attacking him: Keep playing your politics, your voters are watching. To those Republicans that are throwing Joe Wilson under the bus: Conservatives will not forget your betrayals. He has already apologized one time too many.

Mr. Obama has been lying since he began campaigning for the office he now holds. Wednesday's address to Congress was no different. His attempts at sly wording and vague conceptual speech fooled no one and his high-handed threats only deepened the trust rift between the American government and the American public.

Barack Obama is not trusted. His administration, and everything that sprouts out of it, is suspect. That is because he is what he has proven himself to be- a liar.

...And you'll get no apologies from me.

**I say 'is' intentionally. To say that the world has changed would imply that it was the result of a normal progression of events which evolves a society. This has not been the case for the US. Our way of life has been moved away from its Constitutional foundation by an incremental and systematic series of nudges [see the published works of Cass Sunstein].

Celebrate with caution

I apologize to everyone [or should I say anyone] who reads this blog for the long hiatus between posts. Personal matters of a 'friend and family' nature have kept me otherwise occupied.

On this weekend we celebrate the worker, the laborer and, in my case, the unrepentant entrepreneur. We celebrate the taxpayer, the innovator- the backbone and pride of this country. If you're a conservative, you also celebrate the resignation of Van Jones.

The stories and allegations leveled against Sarah Palin did not even have to have truth in them to be fodder for the mainstream media. More than one story which was picked up and carried by MSM "journalists" was later discovered to be absolute hogwash. Heck, they have even enlisted the intellectually-inept ex-fiance of Bristol Palin for his razor-sharp observations AFTER she resigned her post as governor. She stands as a prime example of the DNCs policy of character assassination of its political or ideological opponents. This makes the former Green Jobs Czar's departing words all the more laughable, absurd and antagonistic. In his resignation letter, he accuses a vicious smear campaign. This seemingly includes words spoken from his own mouth, comments made recently and captured on video. Apparently, the shoe doesn't feel so good on the other foot.

Problem #1
The left is not taking this lying down. While perusing the public reaction to the letter text, I came across a positively rabid response from a left-wing poster. It was quickly deleted, but it is telling nonetheless. It talked about killing conservatives. Yeah, you read that right. Maniacally gleeful rage with a vow for retribution. So while we freedom-fighters are all standing around high-fiving each other over our "victory", the left- who have been stewing for weeks over the halt in "progress"- is foaming at the mouth. We are about to see angry mobs- the real kind. The spin is that conservatives are now the impediment to The Chosen Ones' promised "change". We have become targets.

Problem #2 [Conspiracy Theory haters, skip to #3]
Jones' angry exit is a catalyst on an already volatile combination. Did anyone not consider that this was intentional? You put someone who is the quintessential definition of controversial, who is outspoken, provocative and a racial berserker at the helm of the most radical group of progressives- the eco-freaks. Then you have him bait the current movement- conservatives- with Communist talking points in an in-your-face fashion. Public outcry forces him to resign blaming conservatives for his ouster. The right is emboldened and pushes even harder. The left is energized by the sacrifice of their Green Martyr and the twitchy turn itchy to respond with violence as history shows us that they are prone to do. Look for the Olbermans, Maddows, Courics and the like to fan the flames.

Problem #3
I think this is probably the most obvious. The devout Communist gets booted out of his comfy government job where we can see what he's doing and goes immediately back to the radical methods with which he is comfortable and familiar but is now marshalled by an even more intense anger. I don't believe for a second that Van Jones is out of the picture or that his resignation will mean that he has less influence on the policy of this administration. He will no doubt devote more time to the Apollo Alliance and operate under the darkness of its cloak. So, the monster is still out there, but now it's just harder to track.

So, what does that mean for us? Don't get me wrong, I will take any progress in preserving our country and my liberty that I can get. But, I urge everyone to be cautious. Savor this small victory, but know that the battle may just be entering a darker, bloodier phase. Pray [or meditate or cast or reflect, whatever the constructs of your religious beliefs] for clarity, for restraint and thoughtful consideration. Pray for Glenn Beck and his family, as they will no doubt be in even more danger now. Pray for all of our public figures of conservative voice as they are under greater attack with more dire threats. Pray that our public servants pull their heads out and start serving their true purposes.

But, do not revel in this small victory. There is more work to be done. Do not stop. They are not tucking tail and going away. Do not be quiet. Our opposition will be even more loud and vicious now. Do not falter from defending our liberties. They will be willing to push harder and go farther to take them. Do not give our opponents the opportunity they are waiting for.
