Thanks to my online community of conservative friends, I have been able to share my thoughts on the state of our country in small snippets and that’s been enough. But since my last blog post, I’ve made some decisions on my social networks and where and how I will express myself as it pertains to politics, or the fight to save our country. I have made a concerted effort to NOT use Facebook for this type of communication. Unless I had the energy to keep up two different Facebook accounts, I think it best that I keep Facebook for primarily just family updates and humorous antidotes. I will still get a lot of information from my other friends, post on their threads and make comments when I feel the need. But for the most part Facebook will be purely social. Twitter is pretty much the opposite but because as anyone who knows me knows, I cannot keep it short. So re-tweets and replies is all I am able to do there and that lends itself nicely to political and conservative thoughts.
But every once in a while something will come up on Facebook and just like when you’re in a conversation or debate with someone, I think of things later that I wish I would have said. And to me, the timing and situation may just not be right to spew my feelings in someone else’s thread and I’ve committed to not starting a conversation myself on such topics.
So I figure in those times I will come to my own blog, lay it all out there and if someone on FB wants to read it, they can link over and if they don’t, they won’t.
So here I sit, 3 days after finding out that someone I greatly admired has died…too young. First, it breaks my heart to think of him leaving his lovely wife and 4 young children fatherless. Nothing tears me up inside more than the thought of children growing up without a parent. I can’t imagine how hard it must be for his wife to not only have to mourn her love, but then to also have to console her kids and witness their hurt…it must be unbearable. I have close friends who have gone through this and I know it never really heals. You just learn to live with it because you have to.
I never knew Andrew Breitbart personally. It’s amazing how many people did. Over the past 3 days I’ve heard stories about how Andrew would make friends just sitting waiting for a table at a restaurant and would inevitably ask them to join him and whoever he was waiting for. Even those that hate him for his positions, would meet him and within minutes they would admit they couldn’t resist his charming and funny personality. That’s sort of what makes me laugh at all the hate thrown at him by the tolerant left. It was just so painfully obvious that this is all they know how to do. Because if they were really decent and good people, they would be like so many others who disagreed with Andrew’s politics, who after getting to know him realized that he was none of the things the tolerant left claimed he was.
Contrary to the popular belief that the tolerant left tried to promote, Andrew did not think Barack Obama, the Democrats, the establishment GOP or any political figure were the enemy. The Media is the enemy. They are the ones controlling the narrative and they are culpable for the state of this country. If the Media had treated both the right and the left equally over the past 100 years, then we wouldn’t be in the state we are now. Americans traditionally were independent, freedom loving and did not want to be bothered with politicians in Washington. If you wanted to start a business, you did it. If it failed, you shook it off and found some other way to make a living. But now in our entitlement society the thought is, “sure I’ll take a risk to start a business…as long as the government gives me free money to start it and if it fails, they will be there bail me out.” And if that means I have to spend a ton of money to make sure I follow all those government regulations for paying my employees, providing the means to make sure all their financial needs are met with salary, benefits and vacations…and even if the government makes it almost impossible to turn a profit…who cares?! Any profit I make is not mine anyway, since the government gave me the money in the first place to start the business!
It’s amazing to me that the “occupy” mentality thinks that this business model is preferrable. Where has it ever worked? Name one place…China? Yeah, they surely do have a strong economy but their people are basically enslaved and they don’t allow you to have more than one kid. Is that how you honestly want to live? Sorry, but at the top of the list of rights we have as God’s children on this earth is the RIGHT TO LIFE! LIFE! Without it, you have no need for any other right, right?
It makes me sick that these leftist thugs who came out originally saying that they just wanted to fight the Corporate fat cats for making their money in ways that they feel is nefarious…all of the sudden start hassling Catholic school girls by throwing condoms at them as they participate in a peaceful Right to Life march? What exactly does that have to do with Corporate fat cats?
And now this chick going to Georgetown Law School expects me to pay for her contreception? Seriously? She basically is expecting the tax payer to pay her for her to have sex. Why would you need contraception if you weren’t having sex? If you need it for medical reasons like fibroids or some other medical need, then they would be covered under almost any insurance plan like any other prescription. But if you need them strictly to keep from getting pregnant from having sex, then sorry, you’ll have to do that on your own. Once again, no one wants to have to take ANY risks and rather than just not taking that risk (either with business or with sex), you think the risk should be eliminated by ME…the taxpayer. In my opinion, Rush Limbaugh was right on the money with what he said. But alas, the tolerant left is so good at this game and as it came out this “law student” was actually a 30 year old activist that was likely a plant by our dear leader’s current administration, they smartly made it about Rush and what he said. And shame on you advertisers who fall for these tactics every time. Needless to say I will NOT be buying a Sleep Number bed any time soon…if ever.
But I guess what really bugs me the most are those that refuse to see our current leader for what he is…a radical. Every once in a while I see people who while they aren’t Obama supporters will defend him as “having his heart in the right place” or being “intelligent” and handling all the criticism well. WHAT? It’s like they are looking at a different person. I see someone with NO past, no school records, no old girlfriends or friends willing to tell us anything about him, and who can’t give any kind of comprehensible speech without a teleprompter. THIS is someone who is intelligent? This is someone who is an effective leader? And then I realize why these sometimes well-meaning souls see it like that…because that is what the MEDIA tells them. Those that only watch the mainstream media and get all their news from newspapers and TV (and yes, that includes FOX), are really only hearing what the tolerant left wants them to hear. And many fall for it hook, line and sinker.
That is why Andrew was so furious with them. If the American public knew the truth about Obama and others in his administration who have VERY shady pasts, then 1. he wouldn’t even be in office and 2. he wouldn’t have been elected to anything. Think about this, where did Obama learn all he needed to know about politics? Chicago right? And then this article shows that Chicago is the most corrupt city in America http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/25/corrupt-illinois-politici_n_1299478.html?ref=chicago (and yes, this is from the Huffington Post) “The report cites federal data showing that, between 1976 and 2010, there were 1,531 convictions for public corruption in “the federal district dominated by Chicago,” according to the Associated Press”. And yet, you apologist think that somehow this guy with NO past rose above all that corruption? Wow…what color is the sky in your world?
In any case, 4 more years of these radicals in White House with no worries of having to get re-elected and this country will cease to exist. Do me a favor…if you want Obama for another 4 years, then instead of voting for him, just go move to Greece instead. That is obviously the country you want and rather than subjecting the other 80% of us (yes, the dirty little secret of the occupiers is at BEST they are 20%, not 99%) to a less-free America. Plus, you MAY even realize what Margaret Thatcher told us so many years ago…”the problem with socialism is eventually you run out of other people’s money.”
Well, that’s enough for tonight. My next blog post will be about another important aspect to saving our country (and one which Andrew Breitbart fought for every day of his life)…taking back our culture.
