I could sit here and write a dissertation called “What Happened,” very much like Hillary did, only my connotations behind it would have a VERY different meaning. When I ask that question, it’s not out of confusion…. Well, ok, to a point it is I suppose… but more a question of what happened to our youth and their way of thinking about politics and how they should work. What happened in schools, where our Millennials are being indoctrinated into the work of a neo-Marxist idea of a “utopian society” wherein everyone is equal? What happened to proper Civics classes being taught in schools to teach our youth how Government actually works? Above all, what happened to the adults running the show on this crazy train? This, my dear friends, is exactly what I feared would happened with the “Participation Trophy Era.”
I have been watching events unfold on that news that quite frankly scares the living hell out of me when I’m watching kids (anyone under the age of 30) try to push so hard for a Socialist America. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York who just won the Primary for the Democratic Party is a prime example. I don’t know what scared me more… that she thinks Socialism is a “good and wonderful thing” or that she holds a degree in Economics! I digress, I do have to give credit where credit is due, in that our youth is becoming more and more interested in politics, and yes, that’s a great thing. After all, who will carry the torch of Liberty once us old folk are no longer on this Earthly plane? CJ Pearson and Kyle Kashuv hold GREAT promise in the realm of the politico machine, and as teenagers, they are already establishing their platforms and are giving me hope that my children and my grandchildren will still have someone fighting for their freedom long after I am gone.
I doubt this article/blog will reach more than a handful of people, but I hope those that read it will take to heart what I am about to dig into in the meat of my ramblings. You see, I am taking into consideration that our Millennial youth (those that are now of voting age) grew up during the Obama Regime and saw our freedoms being stripped away bit by bit, not only by the Destroyer-In-Chief (to whom I refer as the do-nothing President), and his bizarre policies are really all they know. These poor misguided kids had to go to school during the Common Core age, which was a Government mandated curriculum. Living in Nevada, I feel fortunate in that our School District (which ironically rates as one of the worst in the country), the ONLY area Common Core really took hold was in the way of mathematics. Our CCSD actually ENCOURAGES free thought, and teaches TRUE history (the good AND the bad), because they believe here that in order for a society to thrive, we need to know America’s dirty, often bloody and inhumane history so that we do not repeat it again. With the Obama Administration in charge during those most impressionable years, it really is no wonder that our Millennials are so confused and backwards with regards to how Government really works!
Just the other day, I read some interesting Twitter comments such as David Hogg (of the Parkland School Shooting incident) who said that President Trump should repeal the Patriot Act. What Mr. Hogg did NOT understand was that the Patriot act was passed through Congress and signed into law by President George W. Bush. While I didn’t agree with some of the facets of the Patriot Act, I understood WHY it was passed, as the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 had just happened and we had sleeper cells right here in America. This act gave the Government access to certain points of a civilian’s life if they were suspected of having ties to terrorist organizations. Unfortunately, Obama expanded on it and abuse the NSA to “spy” on the wrong people. Obama was SO liberal with his pen by way of Executive Orders (herein to be known as EOs), he bypassed Congress on many levels, which is how we ended up with DACA, which wasn’t done by way of legal channels. Look, anyone who knows me, knows that I couldn’t stand Obama, I didn’t like where he was headed on his policies, and to be perfectly frank, he almost completely tanked America by letting other countries take financial advantage of us… to our own peril in some cases (read a few articles about the money sent overseas that actually went to help funding organizations such as Al Qaida, the Taliban, ISIS (just to name a few). Let’s also not forget the Bengazi mess. HOWEVER, being an American, even if I didn’t like the man in the Oval Office, I still respected the highest ranking office in our Nation. I smelled trouble when he won the nomination the first time around. In my opinion, he (or the DNC) stole that nomination from Hillary Clinton, who I was planning on voting for at that time. Yet 8 years of working for Obama completely corrupted her and I could not in good faith vote for her in 2016.
Now we hear cries and shouts from the far left (ESPECIALLY from Maxine Waters) calling for President Trump’s impeachment… from day ONE. What she doesn’t understand is that the President has to do something illegal, it has to be proven, and it doesn’t necessarily remove him from office. Those of us old enough to recall the Bill Clinton days learned that. Yes, he WAS actually impeached… but not because he had an affair (consensual or not, that’s still up for debate), but because he obstructed justice. As for Maxine Waters (who I might add makes roughly $171,000 per year, yet lives like a queen in her $4.5M mansion which is far from her district), she has crossed into some dangerous rhetoric that she KNOWS will eventually and ultimately result in violence. Impeaching her from office would be great, but honestly I think that would be WAY too good for her. In my opinion, she should be censured so that she loses that beautiful pension of hers. Of course know she won’t agree to that and will have to be removed kicking and screaming while she’s showing off her new “I love me jacket” fashion statement. It seems this has become a problem among certain members who have become career politicians. Money has corrupted them to the point to where they know they are rabidly losing their cash cows such as the disintegration of the ObamaCare tax mandate. Seriously guys, HOW do you think these people are becoming the wealthy elitists they are?
Now we get on to censorship, which is something that drives me absolutely guano! You see, the Democratic Party IS the “party of slavery.” People are starting to see this, which is what sparked the whole Walk Away movement… especially our African-American brothers and sisters. I had an interesting conversation with a friend of mine who is melanin rich, and he said to me that he doesn’t like being labelled “African-American,” because it fits into the identification politics the Dems play so well. He told me this, “I have never been to Africa. I am an American… period.” He also brought up a VERY good point about this immigration crisis we are currently having (and no, I am NOT getting into the detention facility debacle at this time because that in and of itself has no relevance to what I’m about to say): the left WANTS people to cross illegally because once they do, they pretty much have to work under the table for daily cash then send money home to their families via Western Union. The REASON they want people to do this is because they will work our fields for a ridiculously low (and mostly illegal) wage, meanwhile, they are provided food and shelter. This is merely a more modernized form of slavery, which was an angle I hadn’t considered until recently. This is why the left simultaneously tries to destroy monuments from the Civil War… it’s NOT because the monuments aren’t P.C., but each time someone learns about the Confederate Soldiers, and their president Jefferson Davis (who was a Democrat, by the way), it exposes more and more of the party’s dirty little secrets. They are trying to change and rewrite history, and if there’s ONE thing that Ancient Egypt has taught us…. The truth never stays buried forever. If it did, we would know nothing about Hatshepsut and Akhenaten.
Getting back to what I was initially saying about the Socialist way of running a country; from everything I have seen in today’s world, and everything I have read about since I am an avid history buff, it ALWAYS ends badly. Mot to mention that there is a VERY fine line between Socialism and Communism, which is NOT what this country was founded on. Of course, every time a Socialist country falls into ruin and it’s people starve to death, the same excuse is ALWAYS used: but that’s not REAL Socialism. Please enlighten us then, what IS real Socialism, and how would you KNOW if it’s real or not since apparently in this alternate universe the far left lives in, “True Socialism” has never been tried. Actually, yes it has, and there’s a reason Venezuela keeps being brought into conversational rebuttals, because THAT is true Socialism.
What amuses me to no end are all of the Hollywood leftists talk a big talk about how wealth is in need of redistribution, because they are the ultimate (and apparently the most clueless) humanitarians. Allow me to take a moment to explain why this is not a good thing. Your mansions and condos that are worth millions? You could kiss them bye-bye, along with your back accounts and fancy vehicles, because Socialism would put everyone in a more equal playing field financially. Sounds good at it’s face, but let’s look into how it REALLY works. A good friend of mine in Norway, Trine Strand, is a recording artist and celebrity there (you can look her up on YouTube, by the way… her music is beautiful!), so I asked her point blank how much she made in residuals off of her records and concerts because I was genuinely curious since I know that HERE, a prolific artist of her caliber would be making more money than she would know what to do with. I was surprised to learn that she makes nothing really since the Norwegian Government classifies it as “cultural art.” All of the money made from her albums is redistributed to the citizens of Norway, and her payment? A small house and some farmland. The only real perk is when the Government send her to other countries to perform, but even then, she rarely (if ever) sees a dime. Yes, everyone is equal, yes, the crime rate is low, and yes, everyone has a home, healthcare, universities, etc. It’s all Government owned! The taxes they pay are MORE than HALF of their earnings when they become shopkeepers, dressmakers, etc. The Government decides how big of a slice of the pie you get depending on your quality of labor, so while everyone is on a more equal financial field, the Government STILL determines the percentage everyone gets and there are ZERO opportunities for financial advancement. How does money come into the country you might wonder (especially since you never see those “Made in Norway” tags on your clothing or toys? Simple tourism. Essentially, when you visit Norway and pay for souvenirs, food, lodging, entertainment, that ALL goes to the Government to sustain their programs and you are paying for someone in that country to live. Sure they’re happy and live “the simple life,” but to what cost? I guarantee you if it weren’t for tourism, Norway would flounder and fall. Hearing this from a Norwegian celebrity put things in perspective a zillion fold! As for television, there are only a couple of State run channels, and there are no glamorous movie stars. Most of the television programs they watch there are broadcast from America and the UK! In fact, if one wants to pursue a career in film acting, they have to go to another country to do it! I’m sure our wealthiest and most famous Hollywood actors, directors, producers, et al would CERTAINLY go for this (I hope you were able to pick up on the sarcasm there, but in case you didn’t, I took the liberty of pointing it out to you). So you see, as a Socialist country, they are at least smart enough to rely on a SMALL amount of Capitalism, or they would be dead in the water.
Venezuela… what can I say about Venezuela, who has adopted Socialism. Oh, I forgot… “but that’s not TRUE Socialism!” Actually, Venezuela and North Korea have the TRUEST forms of Socialism. Let that sink in a little bit. They don’t have an import/export trade system, they don’t have tourism, they’ve rejected ANY form of Capitalism, and they eat bugs and dirt just to stay alive. These are plain and simple facts that are rooted in REALITY and not “muh feelz.” You see, a Government should work for it’s people, and not the other way around. After all, it’s YOUR tax dollars that pay their wages!
One last thing I will point out is that I have been seeing many posts asking “what happened to our Checks and Balances?” Again, our youth is now extremely confused by the debacle that was the Obama administration and the adults are finally back in charge. You are SEEING checks and balances actually at work now. I know many are concerned about the Roe v Wade law now that the time has come to appoint a new Supreme Court Justice, so let me fill you in on a little secret: The Supreme Court can’t overturn Roe v Wade all by their lonesome. It’s an established law. The Supreme Court’s sole purpose is to look at a case that is brought before them, then they use a little Governing Document called the United States Constitution in order to interpret and made sure that whatever case is in front of them in Constitutionally sound. A good SC Justice can be a Catholic, an Atheist, a Pagan, Jewish, etc., but they can’t allow their religious beliefs to interfere with a Constitutional decision, so don’t worry folks, Roe v Wade will be just fine, because it has nothing to do with the Judicial Panel which is why it’s not even a whisper in the interviewing process for the nominees.
I know that Common Core has effectively wiped out most High School Civics classes, but I can rest easy knowing that it has been reinstated in my “not-so-wonderful” school district, and with any luck, we will be able to do some damage control. With all that being said, I will end by saying this: STOP it with the participation trophies because they have made for a self-entitled improperly educated generation of people who expect stuff to be given to them in the name of equality!
