Tempest in a Teapot

teapot

 

I have always thought that expression was interesting.  Can’t you just imagine all that happens in that tiny little teapot when it starts to boil?  The water churns and steam rises.  I guess if you are sitting inside that teapot in a little tiny rowboat it would be a major issue and huge matter.  But since we are not inside the teapot all the hustle and turmoil happening inside there is really not big matter.  I see all these protesters today.  Now I want to differentiate between the morons who are organized by a Marxist and funded by a Nazi simply to cause total chaos in an effort to destroy the nation verses a lawful, peaceful standing up for simply what a person believes is morally or ethically wrong.  I am speaking here about the former who simply have an agenda to try and break this nation.  Regarding those protesters, basically I see a bunch of spoiled brat children who have never been told no nor made to pay for anything they broke.  I remember when my son got mad and slammed the doorknob through the drywall.  I had him get is money and he and I went down to the hardware store and he bought what was needed to fix the matter.  Then when we got back home I gave him the tools and watched him fix the wall.  I don’t think he ever did that again.  Maybe if these protesters were ever made to pay for what they broke they might think twice before throwing a brick through a window.

What I see in these protesters are people who want an excuse to destroy.  They are nothing but domestic terrorists as they burn things, break things and beat upon innocent people.  People need to start being made to pay for bad behavior.  Then some idiots in Congress say that the protests were a beautiful thing.  I would love to see their opinion if it was their private property the protesters were destroying.  And now there are some of these morons who are calling for armed revolt.  Please keep in mind that many of these people are the same ones marching in the gay pride parades wearing tutus and pink hair….and those are the guys.  These are also some of the same people who protest against firearms so I would love to see what they were going to use as weapons in that armed uprising.  I know that some of the same fruitcakes protest guns with dildos so maybe they are going to somehow use them as their weapon of choice.

These people have gotten away with their behavior because they have not met real resistance.  But the patience of the masses is growing thin.  Keep in mind that if you remove the illegal votes cast Trump won majority vote.  This is not even worth arguing because voter fraud in favor of Clinton has been proven and documented.  All that the recounts accomplished was shining more light on voter fraud.  That means that before the fruitcakes of this nation want to try and pick up arms and start an overthrow of our nation they need to remember that not only is the military greatly in favor of a President who actually supports them but there are also millions of people who supported him because he supported the right to keep and bear arms.  The domestic terrorists need to keep two things in mind.  First is that we will without hesitation protest ourselves, our families and our nation.  The second thing is that we will without hesitation meet any efforts to harm or overthrow our President, a man who actually loves this country, or our nation with unrelenting power.  We will defend our home, land, and President with such force that they cannot even comprehend.  Should they be so stupid as to push things to this level we will take no prisoners, show no mercy and give no quarter to the enemy.  Maybe it is time that we actually did clean house and got rid of the infiltrators and traitors.  I hope that it does not come to this but if it does, I think I know which side is going to win.

A racist

two-wolves

What is racism?  What is a racist?  We are being programmed that rasism is a thing that is said or done.  If a person does not do or say certain things then they are not a racist but if they do then they are racists.  Racism is not a thing.  Racism is not a word.  Racism is a state of heart.  Racism is no more a thing than generosity being when a person gives to a charity.  If a person is going to donate to a charity and makes a big production out of taking out their wallet and waving around a $10 bill before giving it is not being generous.  They are being an egotist.  A person who quietly gives 50 cents might be more generous than someone who gives $50.  But our present definition of racism is simply indicative of our society that loves to blame an object rather than the individual.  America does not have a gun problem.  America has a people problem.  As long as there are people who believe they can demand their rights and always get their way then there will always be a means by which they use to force their will upon others.

I grew up basically a Southern, (which I say proudly).  While I was born in Chicago my dad and mom were from southern Indiana.  Dad’s dad was from Kentucky.  We were raised with southern values such as your word is your contract and a gentleman treats a lady like a queen.  I remember one winter morning asking my girlfriend at the time if she would go out and start the car so it could start warming up while I finished packing.  We were visiting home during college break.  My dad told her to stop and for me to get out there and warm that car up myself and never to do that again.  I was informed that was NOT the way to treat a lady.  I remember listening to people talk.  I had an aunt who was as gentle as could ever be.  She used expressions typical of ‘southern’ jargon.  My dad used jargon typical of the south as well as of Chicago pertaining to particular races.  Neither of these people were a racist.  Dad had many ‘black’ friends whom he respected because he qualified a person’s character higher than the color of their skin.  But if we are able to place the blame of social ills upon things and words then people are able to go “scot free”.  It will only be as people begin to take internal looks and inventory that social ills will be addressed.

People do not want to look at themselves.  Too many people in our society are so narcissistic that they believe they are incapable of having any wrong attitudes.  They see themselves as perfect little shining examples of personhood who are the remaining few capable of judging others.  Now I do not know about other people but I know that I have more than enough issues going on inside myself to keep me busy correcting my own wrongs that I do not have much time left over to judge other people.  Maybe if we start looking inside ourselves we would not be so busy screaming racism at someone who has a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or who likes black jelly beans over other colors.  I grew up when we did laundry we separated the whites from the colored.  It was referring to cloths, not people.  I grew up preferring chocolate milk over white.  These are preferences and not indicators of racism.

Christmas is a time of gift giving.  But just because someone gives me a gift does not mean they like me.  Just because someone compliments you does not mean they are your friend.  I learned a long time ago to beware of the person who sings your praises the quickest because they just might stab you in the back the fastest.  I went to a very conservative Christian college.  There was nothing wrong with the college but I remember listening to some of the other students condemn people who ‘went to movies’.  (Yes, there are some people who still see going to dances and movies as ‘evil’.)  I was never impressed with the attitudes of those people and their self-righteousness.  I was grateful that I grew up working in a Salvation Army rehabilitation center learning that not everything was as it seemed.  Just because someone looks like a raging drunk on the outside does not mean that there is not an extremely talented individual hiding inside.

It would be a curse upon our society if our children buy into the idea that evil is a thing and not something found in the heart of mankind.  Once they do that then it is easy to believe that as long as you do not do certain things then all is well.  Just because I may not see cancer does not mean that it is not killing me. There is an old Indian folktale of each person having two wolves hiding within and are at war with each other.  One is good while the other is evil.  The one that is fed is the one which would conquer the other. Only as we teach our children and society that it is the heart of the individual that must change and the acceptance of personal responsibility for one’s actions that there will ever be real change.

Last Peaceful Solution

war-or-peace

I am not necessarily 100% sold on Donald Trump but I doubt that there is, was or will be ever any candidate that I would be completely sold on.  I find it interesting that the primary weapon being welded against Trump presently is a ‘vulgar’ statement from 2005.  All I know is that I am embarrassed at what might be found in my history if someone would start digging back 11 years.  I really wish that both parties would use the same standard of morality.  It is irritating watching people get so self-righteous over a statement used by someone else yet more than not have used the same if not worse vocabulary.  I would be nice if politics would ever start applying the same principles and standards across the board.  But we are in an election year.  This means we are going to have people who normally have nothing to do with the general population get all friendly wanting votes and then afterwards go right back to ignoring the people and sending out party approved emails whenever you try to contact your representatives.  But, I digress.  The people fear their government.  I do not know anyone who receives anything in the mail from a government agency with excitement.  The IRS strikes fear in the hearts of people in many ways resembling of the old Gestapo because it is a rule within itself.  It does not matter if you are right or wrong, if the IRS says you are wrong then you are wrong unless you have a lot of money to get lawyers to fight them on your behalf.  The government has worked hard and long at developing the image that they are not your friend unless they want your vote.

Hillary Clinton has been very open with the fact that she will increase the number of refugees, and I use that word loosely, by over 500%.  She has also been open with her agenda to remove personal firearms.  She believes the only way to stop terrorism is to remove personal ownership of guns.  I do wish that politicians would have to pass an IQ test prior to their being able to run for office.   It only takes a brief look at France, Germany, Belgium or Sweden to see the results of allowing mass amounts of unvetted  ‘refugees’ in the country.  If we were really interesting in helping those fleeing for their lives we would be more interested in helping the Yazsidi women and children as opposed to strong healthy men who should be back fighting to protect their homeland and families.

Americans are getting tired of living in fear of a group of people who are being paid by them to represent them who are not interested in anything their own power.  Americans do not want socialism because most people knows that all that means is that those who have worked hard will have it taken away to be given to those who are often times unwilling to work.  I am permanently disabled due to an auto accident that turned my back into a train wreck.  I was not one of the lucky ones who found an attorney that got them millions for their accident.  My attorneys basically gave out on me since the insurance company was Hartford and they were afraid of fighting them.  I struggle to pay my bills and get really frustrated as I watch people who are willing to work manipulate the system and get thousands per month.  There has not been an increase in social security over the past number of years worth even noting while the government plans to spend billions on these new ‘immigrants’.  Our veterans are living in the streets and dying there because the VA system is corrupt and unwilling to do what is needed to care for those who have served our country.  The IRS mocks the laws and has become nothing more than an attack dog for an ideology.  The FBI demands that everyone live by the law ‘or else’ while people with strong political influence get away with doing the same things that would have sent most people to prison years ago.  There are so many millionaires in ‘public service’ while the people they are supposed to represent struggle to make ends meet.  Likewise these same millionaires at the public expense cannot really list anything that they have accomplished worth the salaries they draw.  THE PEOPLE ARE FED UP!

I do not want violence in our streets.  America is different than the third world countries that have riots and murder on a regular basis.  But, as I am writing these words I am reminded of the news which on a daily basis shows America having riots and murder going on somewhere on a daily basis.  I fear for my country.  I fear yet it does not take much more than an honest assessment of our situation to realize that America is at a critical point in history.  At risk of having someone in an ugly suit knocking on my door demanding answers for questions only they know, I am going to stick my neck out and include that America is at a critical point where either there are major changes in the way things are done in our government and those in power or there more than likely will be violence in our streets.  You can only force people to live in fear so long before they snap.  Our government keeps taking more and more and providing less and less to the majority of the people.

I truly hate to say it because it is a declaration as to the condition of our nation but I see Donald Trump as the only peaceful solution to our situation.  Hillary will continue the present course and political agenda of pushing government power and demands.  It has been shown already to the people that her power will continue unhindered and unrestrained.   Under her America will follow suit with various counties in Europe with the massive influx of ‘refugees’ but the difference between Americans and the European countries is that we do arm ourselves and we will fight back.  As her agenda of disarming Americas become forced upon us, that will trigger a second American Revolution because I do not see Americans giving up their Constitutional rights that easily.  The only option left in their playbook would be to bring in the UN as a ‘peacekeeping’ force.  Once they hit our streets that will not be received well.  America would no longer be a peaceful nation.  I have never understood why if a person did not like our way of life they would want to become so involved in our system as to completely destroy it if they are also proclaiming to love America.

I have children and grandchildren.  I do not want to see my country become a warzone.  But I am also a realist.  I cannot help the conclusions I draw as I read the ‘tea leaves’.  History has proven that you can only push the people so far before they push back.  I do not see our law enforcement continuing to be the buffer between the people and the government as they continue to be thrown under the ‘Black Lives Matter’ bus.  I am not against any race.  As I draw my family tree I realize that I am my own United Nations.  But this BLM thing is saying that our police and their lives do not matter and that it should be open game on anyone wearing a badge.  I take that personally coming from a family of police officers.

I look at our present situation and, to me, it is much more than simply Hillary or Trump.  The present situation represents a critical point in the continuation of my country.  It is much more than simply having a Democrat or Republican in the White House.  We are at a point where we will determine whether or not we will continue to be the United Stated of America as we have been since 1776.  We are deciding whether or not to keep the Constitution as we know it.  We are deciding whether or not to keep the Bill of Rights as we know it.  We are deciding whether or not to keep an America as we know it.  It may or may not be the longer range answer to all our problems but I see Donald Trump as the only peaceful solution to the present American situation.  Quite frankly, and it hurts deeply to be this honest, if Hillary Clinton gets elected Americans need to prepare for war.

Muslim verses Jew

Muslim and Jew

In the court of public impression and presentation I find these two religions interesting in their comparisons and contrasts.  In many ways they are much alike.  The primary ways in which they are different is the manner in which they express themselves to the public.

Muslims and Jews both have dietary restrictions as per their religions.  Neither eats pork or pork products.  Both require items that are prepared in a particular manner.  One is halal and the other is kosher. Neither celebrates Christmas nor traditionally see Jesus Christ as the Savior of mankind.  Both have a sacred scripture where one as the Koran and the Torah.  These are just some of the most cursorily similarities in their religions.  Both believe they are correct in their interpretation of the Holy Writ and are following the instructions of God or Allah.

What I find most different is the manner in which they address their particular aspects of their faiths.  Recently there are events in the news where the Muslims are demanding that food banks have halal produced foods.  Particular restaurants that serve pork or pork products have come under extreme fire by the Muslims to change or remove those offensive items from their menus.  On the other side of the issue I find that if the Jews do not find what meets the dietary requirements of their religion instead of demanding that others change to please them they make those items available to the members of their communities themselves.  They seem more determined to be self-sufficient to their unique aspects rather than to demand that outsiders supply for their needs and demands.  Restaurants that serve items found offensive to the Jew simply are not purchased nor consumed.  The restaurant is left alone permitting it to operate as an independent business as the owner desires.

Another point of difference between the Muslim and the Jew is how they approach the public schools.  The Muslim communities have been demanding that the public school cease to celebrate Christmas in that it offense the Muslim and is contrary to their beliefs.  Contrarily the Jew has found that they simply do not have to take part in things they find in contradiction to their beliefs while permitting those who believe in Christmas to continue to enjoy their season.  I have yet to read about Jews throwing rocks at Christians as they are leaving a church service.  I have yet to read about Jews killing people because they spoke negatively against the Torah.  I have yet to see Jews behead anyone because they refuse to turn to Judaism.  What I find is a great deal of demanding done by the Muslims while I see a great deal of tolerance by the Jews.  The Muslims claim they are a religion of peace.  Likewise, according to many teachings by the Muslims the Jews do not have a reason to exist and needs to be removed from the face of the earth.  What I see verses what is said, the Muslims appear to be the religion of war and conflict while the Jew seems to be the religion of peace and tolerance.

If the Muslim does not like this impression or opinion of their faith then they need to start being active in portraying it in a different manner.  If they do not want to be seen as the religion or war and conflict then they must step out from among the chaos and speak out against those who wish to insult Islam by their actions.  It is not the ‘infidel’ that insults Islam.  It is those within Islam which insults Islam.  It is those who claim to be part of the religion of peace yet keep demanding that everyone stop their way of life and bow to what they want and need.  It is those who demand that their way becomes the ways of all instead of allowing the same freedom of religion which they demand.  If the Muslims want to be half the religion of peace that the Jews have presented themselves as being through the years they need to start speaking out against the hatred and killing which is being done in the name of their Allah and start emulating peace and tolerance for others.
