Tired of the hypocrisy

Baltimore riots

For the past few days America has had the riots in Baltimore shoved at them through the media.  You cannot turn on the news without hearing the liberals make excuses for the actions of criminals destroying lives and property as they desire.  Some of these excuses usually center around how the poor black youth has had such a hard life and they are unheard regarding their cries to society for any assistance and help.  The liberal ipecac becomes overwhelming.  But this like most liberal points of view lacks substance and truth.  If the liberals were really interested in reducing poverty and increasing the lives of people they would look at all people and not just a pet group.

According to Blackdemographics.com the rate of black families with no males were around 70.6% below poverty.  By 2012 this rate had dropped to 41.2% cutting it almost in half.  The rate of all black families in 1959 was around 54.9% with a dropping to 25.7% by 2012.  It would be nice if the liberal media would look at real facts.  The liberals keep blasting about how hard the blacks have it in this country to live.  Yet the liberal media does not want to discuss poverty.  They obviously just want to discuss black poverty.  While the overall general black poverty level is at 25.7% the overall general poverty level of the American Indian is at 28.4%.  Additionally while the blacks were living at high rates of poverty during the early years of the 20th century it was not until 1924 that the American Indian was even recognized as being a citizen.  As a person goes to research poverty in the American Indian families the records become scarce since in so many documents the American Indian is absent.  They are not even listed as if they still do not even exist.

The hypocrisy of the media in their exposing the poverty of the black needs to be uncovered.  They are not interested so much in exposing poverty as much as to beat the political drum for the black community.  The media consistently takes the side that if there is a problem between the police and the black community that the police must be the ones in the wrong.  The media consistently takes the position that if there is a black teen shot by the police it is because the police are racists.  If the black teen is protesting in riots it is because of the unheard condition of the black teen.  It is sickening how the media takes the pulpit for the black community while twisting the facts in order to make a story regarding how hard the black community has it to survive.  If the media truly wanted to be dealing with poverty they would deal with REAL poverty of the people and not simply take the side of a particular group.

The media loves to connect the black poverty levels to the rate of drop out blaming the school and educational systems for the poverty in the black communities.  Over the past few years the dropout rate of the black community has dropped form 13%-8%.  Over the same period of time the dropout rate of the Hispanic communities has dropped from 32%-13%.  While the Hispanic dropout rate remains approximately 30% greater than the black communities the level of families living below the poverty level for the Hispanic communities is lower than that of the black communities at around 24%.   The dropout rate for the Hispanics is 30% higher with a 2% lower rate of poverty.  It is not the educational systems that are creating the problems for the black communities.

According to the 2010 report regarding incarcerations the level of Hispanic incarcerations was approximately at 9% while the blacks were at 22%.  Again keep in mind that the Hispanic communities have a 30% higher school dropout rate.  It is not the schools which create the problems for the black communities.  According to 2013 records regarding teen pregnancies there is a 39% of teen pregnancy within the black communities verses a 42% level of teen pregnancy yet the incarceration level of the Hispanics to the black communities is less than half.  It is not the family issues which are the problem for the black communities.  According to welfare statistics approximately 28% of overall welfare spending goes to black communities while 17% approximately is received by the Hispanic communities.  It is not the issue of government aid which is the problem for the black communities.  Therefore, once you begin to strip away all other excuses for the black communities to be rioting and destroying the property of others and of being the highest group incarcerated the problem begins to be clear that the problem lies within the black communities.  It is not an exterior source which is the cause of all their problems.  They are the cause for all their problems.  This does not mean that there have and are not extenuating circumstances which might makes somethings difficult, but they also exist in all communities.  The scope of investigation must stop being focused upon the exterior excuses and begin to examine personal choices made by members of the black communities.  It appears as if the reason for their problems lies within, not without the black communities themselves.

They are not interested so much in exposing poverty as much as to beat the political drum for the black community. The media consistently takes the side that if there is a problem between the police and the black community that the police must be the ones in the wrong. The media consistently takes the position that if there is a black teen shot by the police it is because the police are racists.

According to welfare statistics approximately 28% of overall welfare spending goes to black communities while 17% approximately is received by the Hispanic communities. It is not the issue of government aid which is the problem for the black communities. Therefore, once you begin to strip away all other excuses for the black communities to be rioting and destroying the property of others and of being the highest group incarcerated the problem begins to be clear that the problem lies within the black communities.

It is not an exterior source which is the cause of all their problems. They are the cause for all their problems. This does not mean that there have and are not extenuating circumstances which might makes somethings difficult, but they also exist in all communities. The scope of investigation must stop being focused upon the exterior excuses and begin to examine personal choices made by members of the black communities. It appears as if the reason for their problems lies within, not without the black communities themselves.

Words have meaning

hammers and screwdrivers

There are terms being bantered around which need to be examined. Words are like tools. They really have no power within themselves but the manner in which they are utilized determines their power. But there are factions in society and government which loves to take words and give them meanings other than what the actual words represents. They truly seem to believe that if they scream the new definition for the word long enough and loud enough that people will eventually begin to believe those new definitions. But if someone knows what a hammer looks like and can recognize one at a glance then it does not matter if others scream and yell that it is not a hammer but is actually a screwdriver. The person who understands what a hammer looks like and is used for will always know that a hammer is a hammer and not a screwdriver.

Two words have been so misused that they have actually become weapons by the liberals against people to truly do not understand the meaning of words. These two words are ‘Islamaphobic and Homophobic’. The liberals have taken these words and have given them meanings that are not addressed in the words themselves. Again the liberals and government talking heads are calling a hammer a screwdriver and people believe them. These terms are being presented as meaning that if you are in opposition to either Islam or homosexuality than you are hostile towards them. But that is the total opposite as to the definition of the words as they are parsed out. Parsing out a word simply refers to breaking a word down. Many words are a combination of multiple words. The key element of both of these words is the term ‘phobic’. Phobic is derived from phobia or the fear of something. When a person is ‘phobic’ they are terrified by something. They want nothing to do with that which triggers their particular phobia. If a person has a phobia of water they avoid water and are terrified of being in or around water. If a person has a phobia of spiders or snakes they are basically rendered paralyzed by fear if they are in the presence of a spider or a snake. But liberals and other elements in society have taken the term phobia and have turned it from being terrified of something to where a person is hostile towards something and attacking that which has created their phobia. According to the term this is totally impossible. Yet, those in society consistently call a hammer a screwdriver.

Just because you do not agree with homosexuality does not mean that you are terrified of homosexuality. Neither does it mean, as the liberals or others in society are trying to present, that you are hostile towards it. Likewise, just because a person does not agree with the teachings of Islam or does not trust Islam due to the actions of radical Islamist, does it mean that a person is hostile towards Islam. According to the definition of the words a person would have to be so terrified of Islam and homosexuality to the point of being basically unable to function in the presence of these things. If this was the case then the person who have nothing to do with either and would see them as something to be avoided at all cost, not confronted or attacked.

Liberals love to use words they do not understand. As I listen to liberals talk I am beginning to think that many of them are basically ignorant. They just know how to navigate conversations so that they do not have to address any real issues. Listen to them and take note as to how many times they divert the focus off of what they real issue or topic has been and on to what they wish to address. They seem to have a canned response much like the religious cults who have a particular response to questions but if they are forced to stay on topic they fall apart. Knowing the power of some words the liberals avoid ‘yes’ and ‘no’ answers like the plague. They love to scream and yell their particular definitions even though it actually just proves their own ignorance regarding the reality of those particular words. Just because someone disagrees with Islam and homosexuality does not mean they are hostile towards it. It simply means they are using their First Amendment right to express their personal opinion on the matter. The liberals use and twist the meanings of words to try to get them to be quite by demonizing those who disagree.

People need to stop calling a hammer a screwdriver. People need to know the difference between these two tools. People need to stop believing the liberals and the government talking heads when they are screaming that a hammer is a screwdriver. The words Islamaphobia and Homophobic are words which really do not exist and cannot exist in their given definition. It is impossible for them to mean that which the liberals and government talking heads are trying to make them out to mean.

People need to look at things for themselves and to stop believing those who are calling a hammer a screwdriver.

Liberals need to learn basic math

math

I was listening to the Mayor of Baltimore talk about how there is a problems when so many young people do not have jobs and how there is a problem when so many black young people have a real problem with the law enforcement. According to her if there has to be a problem with something then it has to be everything other than the black young person. But according to basic math in any equation there are at least two factors. In order to compare anything there must be at least two elements. It is beyond time that the liberal who wants to find excuses for the actions of the young blacks of places like Ferguson and Baltimore need to start facing reality.

If there are ‘poor black youths’ who get out of the cities with dignity and family without having conflict with the law enforcement then maybe it is not the fault of law enforcement. If there are poor black youths who are able to find work then maybe it is not just the job market that needs work. If there are poor black youths who graduate from school then maybe it is not the school system that has a problem. The liberal must begin to acknowledge that maybe the problem rests with some of the ‘poor black youths’ who are the trouble makers and have created their own problems.

So many of the liberals are acting like an enabling parent. It cannot be the poor black child who is the problem or who is the reason for the arrest. It has to be the establishment. Just like an enabling parent, there can never be any good resulting from their blind actions. It does not take a rocket scientist to watch the videos of some of these black young people throwing rocks at passing police cars to understand there the problem rests. Liberals must somewhere sometime simply admit that there are some black youths who simply want to create trouble. They do not want to work. They do not want a job. They do not want to graduation from school. They do not want to obey the police. They do not want to follow the laws. They do not want to do what they are told. They do not want to be part of a working society. They are the problem!

As long as there are good young black people who graduate, marry, have families, obey the law, work and create jobs; then the argument that it is the system that is the problem falls apart. It is the system, it is the individual. It is never a thing that is a problem. It is the individual who makes the decisions. Things are stagnate. People make choices. People make decisions. People choose their attitudes and actions. People are responsible for who and what they become. The liberals and the government must stop making excuses and start accepting reality that the problem rests with people and that they are accountable for their actions and not just blaming the systems. Yes, systems need help and need change. But as long as there are good people who are able to navigate the system and come out positive and productive then the fault cannot rest upon the system.

Liberals and government officials must eventually accept the reality that there are some black youths who simply choose to be bad and want to create trouble. You can pour all the money you want into communities and racial groups but as long as there are people who want to make trouble there will be trouble. It is a personal problem. It is an individual problem. It is a choice.

Being poor does not make you violent

lipstick on a pig

I am fed up with hearing the liberal commentators excuse the black riots in Baltimore as being from poor black neighborhoods. Being poor does not make you violent. Being poor does not make you riot. Being poor does not make you destroy other people’s property. Being poor is not an excuse for bad behavior. I question how many of the protestors and rioters are really that poor considering their means of communication is social media via their cell phones. Being poor is not a condition reserved for black people. Yet you listen to the liberals regarding the Baltimore riots and they blame social condition and the police. The President proceeded to put his political foot in his mouth again as he sites how often the police respond incorrectly with black people. This condemnation comes from a man who probably would not have the backbone nor courage to remotely do what our police is required to do on a daily basis. He does not deserve the sacrifices that the police must do every time he sticks his head out of the White House as taxpayer expense.

The social scientist who say that if you give a black community a good environment then they will produce good people need to do some basic research into the Cabrini Green housing development of Chicago. They pumped multi-millions into fixing that area nice only to tear it down later because all it became was a better looking slum. The Democrats made fun of their opposition during a recent election by talking about putting lipstick on a pig. Yet the Democrats and the liberals constantly keep putting lipstick on pigs trying to make them into beautiful bucks. You cannot change what does not choose to change.

Within the communities that the liberals are saying need the jobs to make the difference it would be wise to look at the schools. The school systems have millions poured into them to make them useful and beneficial for the students. The number of students who drop out of school is demonstrative of the attitude that is persistent in those neighborhoods. If a student will not take advantage of a school system which is free why is there any thought that they would any more desire to take advantage of any employment which might be present? If they drop out of school which hands them an education there is no basis to think that jobs and employment would make any difference. It is an attitude of total indifference and a complete apathy to desire for self-improvement. There is so much which is available to people within the ‘poor’ communities which the liberals are blaming for the riots. People riot and destroy because they choose to riot and destroy. It is not because they are poor. That is an insult to people who are poor. They riot and destroy because they have no respect for others or other people’s property. They have no respect for the work that other people have poured into their businesses. They have no respect for the blood, sweat and tears shed to build that company. People do not riot for any a cause. They riot because they choose to do so. It is not because these people do not have a voice. It is not because the police are too rough with them. Has anyone bothered to look at the rap sheets of these so called martyrs at are being lifted up as having died unjustly at the hands of the police. Stop blaming the police for people who break the law and do so consistently and repeatedly.

You listen to the liberals and you are left with the idea that the only people who can be poor are black. The foolishness of the liberal argument that the riots, these are not protest because a protest has a reason, are due to social condition are making excuses for people who are too irresponsible to take charge of their own lives. If these people would put the same level of energy into a job or creating their own employment there would not be an unemployment condition in their communities. Stop with the mentality that says anyone deserves a handout. Welfare systems were meant to be a hand-up and not a career choice. If people are too lazy to even go to a free school system why would anyone begin to think that offering jobs would make any more of a difference or create any more of a personal desire to improve. It is not a social problem. It is a choice problem and these people have chosen to riot and destroy. It is not the police fault; it is not society’s fault; it is not a family fault because there was only one parent; it was a choice of the individual. There are plenty of people who have had conflict with the police who have changed their lives.

There are plenty of poor people who have gone on to start major businesses. There are plenty of people from single parent families who have not gone off to riot and burn down cities. It is nothing more than a personal choice to not care about anything and to choose to destroy what belongs to someone else because they are too lazy to make it themselves. Do not blame the police or society when people choose to willfully make bad choices. Put blame where it belongs and that is squarely upon the shoulders of the young people throwing the bricks, looting, setting fires, assaulting the police and destroying property.

A place to destroy

Baltimore riots

The Mayor of Baltimore made it clear that one of the ways she was going to handle the riots in Baltimore was to allow the protesters a safe place to destroy.  This is insane!  But this is also a carbon copy of Obama’s administration.  This is an echo of Obama’s comment to business owners and those who have built companies when he stated that they did not build that company.  This administration seems to love to take credit for the hard work of those in society who try to build society.  The Mayor took ownership of every car and every business that was in her ‘safe’ zone which was destroyed.  As she took ownership permitting their total destruction she also needs to pay the people who once owned those items and businesses.  She usurped title over private property.  But another thing she did which is also an echo of this administration was that she told the police which laws they were and were not permitted to enforce.  Obama has handcuffed the Border Patrol and ICE.  He has made it clear to his minions as to which laws he wants to see enforced and which laws he wants to see ignored.  According to testimony by Saldana she instructs her officers to follow orders from the White House over Congress regarding not enforcing various immigration laws.  Baltimore is simply a microcosm of Washington D.C.

People are shocked at scenes like Baltimore and Ferguson.  But the political leaders of these communities are following the lead of the other Democrats in power.  The Governor of Missouri during the Ferguson riots could have called in the National Guard much earlier but instead allowed the riots to continue night after night placing the police in constant domestic war zones showing utter contempt for their safety.  The Mayor of Baltimore made it clear and obvious her stand regarding the riots as she gave total permission and safety for the rioting thugs.  It is also clear that in America today race makes the difference.  Right is wrong and wrong is right IF you are of the correct race.  When a person is elected into public officer their race is supposed to be left outside the door.  It is obvious that again Baltimore is simply a reflection of DC.  Standing behind the Mayor was Carlos Muhammad, a local leader in the Nation of Islam.  Nation of Islam may not seem too important to the uninformed but for many who have lived in cities they know that the Nation of Islam IS Louis Farrakhan.  Farrakhan has not made any secret of his desire to see all whites destroyed by the blacks.  His hatred is legendary.  Alone with Farrakhan can normally also be found the Black Panthers who have one goal and that is to kill whites in the name of racial equality.  A person must ask why does the Mayor if Baltimore has these people standing behind her.

The Nation of Islam, ISIS, radical Islam, Black Panthers, MEChA and other such groups are not the friends of America.  This is total insanity.  As long as our elected officials continue to make alliances with those who have sworn to kill as many whites as possible and have racial civil war as their agenda America will never see the end to the Fergusons and the Baltimores.  As long as this mentality is permitted to grow, and blessed by our elected officials, there will continue to be blacks shot by police in self-defense.  As long as there will be black thugs shot by police and this racial divide is the agenda of our political leaders there will be riots.  Baltimore just seemed to make clear many things that until now have been covered.  Obama has advanced racial divide under secret.  The Mayor of Baltimore just took off the covers to show the world the agenda.

The groups such as those listed in the previous paragraph have nothing to do with racial equality or cultural growth.  They have only the agenda of racial conquest and separating the races even further.  As long as the White House and this administration continue to send representatives to the funerals of people killed after creating a police encounters, these groups will only be emboldened.  As long as the riots such as Ferguson and Baltimore are seen as a form of freedom of speech they will only continue to increase.  As long as those destroying and burning private property without any regard to those who sacrificed to build those businesses are seen as poor minorities who have been suppressed by the police and are just expressing their anger, they will only continue and get worse.  These actions are not those of poor little children who are angry and oppressed.  These actions are the actions of brats who should have been disciple as young children but were permitted to get away with murder.  These actions have nothing to do with social protest but are the actions of social deviants who are going to be on the list of future assaults against the police and of those shot and killed by the police.  These actions are not an expression of speech, these actions are the total disregard for the rights of others because they have been told that THEIR rights come above all else.

The only way the Fergusons and Baltimores are going to stop is as negative actions are met with severe consequence.  Only as it is clear that it is wrong to destroy private property and that there will be consequences for those actions will the destruction ever stop.  Only as it is clear that a RIGHT and a WRONG does exist will the destruction ever cease.  This will not be taught by the government throwing money into the communities.  This will not be taught by the government feeling sorry for those who want to whine and complain about their lives.  This will only be taught by those who are supposed to enforce consequences are permitted to do their jobs and enforce REGARDLESS OF RACE.

Think twice America

hilllary what difference

America has had six years of a President who has been caught in what is politically correctly said to be ‘having misspoke’.  Growing up that was simply stated as having lied.  We have had a President who has repeatedly stated that he learned about various scandals and events at the same time that the rest of America learned about them and through the same media which informed the average American.   Either this was another lie or an example of the worse group of presidential adviser in the history of the office.  He has stood in front of the American people showing outrage at the various scandals and promising that he would get to the bottom of the investigation while berating those doing the investigation and using his executive powers to hide evidence and documents.  He has been more sympathetic towards radical Islam than he has to the Republican Party.   He has publically refused to even acknowledge the existence of radical Islam.  He has had his use of executive power reviewed repeatedly by the Supreme Court.  It really does not matter what the outcome of the court’s decision regarding these matters.  The facts remain that his use of executive powers has been able to generate even question and concern to reach to the Supreme Court.  His spending has been beyond any previous President in history if not all previous Presidents combined.  His apathy towards the common American has been evident as he takes less than five minutes to discuss how he felt about American’s being beheaded and then rushing back to the golf course.  And now we have a potential of another Obama via Hillary Clinton.

Hillary says how we must understand our enemy and be able to empathize with them.  Hillary has had her own scandals from when she was a lawyer being dismissed for being unethical and lying.  She has had her scandals which surrounded both Clintons while First Lady such as the questionable death of Vince Foster.  There is the present scandal of her deleting and wiping her server clean of all emails after they had been seen as federal evidence.  The scandal and remaining questions of Benghazi continue to surround Hillary.  Her self-righteous ‘what difference does it make’ statement was a diversion away from the simple question of ‘why did you deliberately continue what was a known lie regarding the attack on the Embassy’ and what was later revealed as CIA involvement in the Embassy and the storage of heavy weapons.  Hillary claims it was easier to use one electronic devise instead of multiple ones yet she still used multiple devises.  She has lied regarding her times as Secretary of State calling it ‘misspoke’ regarding running under heavy sniper fire.  Her foundation has had to redo multiple years of back taxes calling it minor errors.  If she cannot effectively run a foundation worth millions there are significant questions regarding how she can run a nation worth trillions.

There is a remaining question as to how much of America is going to remain and in what shape it will be remaining after the time of Barack Obama is finished.  America has fallen from its stature in the world under his quasi leadership.  The Democrat Party has shown itself to not be a party of the people but a party more interested in votes and power than the Constitution.  The Democrat Party has given us such things as the Affordable Health Care Act.  While many see this as a monument of success the overall cost, remaining questions pertaining to the details of this bill, the manner in which the bill was passed by a signal party, and the general effectiveness of the bill verses the accumulated damages from the bill seem to significantly outweigh any potential successes.  This bill has all the appearances of instead of being a beacon of hope to America is more of a millstone around the neck of America.  Hillary has all the appearances of simply being another Barack Obama and the question must be asked if America can survive another Barack Obama.  Race relations has reverted backwards decades under Obama.  The office of the President has become so common place as to have stripped away much of the dignity and glamor.  The voice of the President has gone from being a supporting and encouraging clarion to being a tone that is more times than not muted and ignored.  America does not need anyone of any party holding the office of President who is coming in with unanswered scandals.  Hillary, in my opinion, will be nothing more than just another Barack Obama which America does not need and cannot afford.
