One would think that with a half black President and decades of civil rights laws, that America would finally be in a place where race is transcended. Who can forget President Obama’s lecture on race during the presidential campaign of 2008? And yet the idea that racism is still pervasive in this country is continually trumpeted. Tea Partiers are accused of being racist for protesting the government simply because the President is black. Any suggestion of profiling is deemed racist even though it would make society safer. Calls for reparations continue to be heard. And now the 2010 Census form has arrived at most homes and indeed, race is a major component of the questions.
First of all, the Census informs us that question 8, which is about Hispanic origin, has nothing to do with race. What? Not only is that preposterous, but why is this question separated from question 9 that is a general race question? What difference does it make if someone is of Cuban or Puerto Rican descent? Criminal invaders are terrified to answer the Census because they fear they will be picked up. (That is laughable.) This question should leave them quaking in their boots. Perhaps the Census should have just asked if the individual was in America legally. And why are we counting these people anyway? So we can allow them to steal more of our services?
Question 9 is just as ridiculous. Why does the Census have to know someone’s race? And how do most of us American mutts answer that? Many Americans have a mixed heritage. It would serve the government better to have asked if you were a citizen. Perhaps even a natural born citizen – if only the government could figure out what that means exactly. I plan on marking Question 9 as “other” and writing in American. I am sick to death of the hyphens and seperation in this society. Obviously, the 2010 Census is racist.
The question is, “Why does the government need this information?” My answer to that question should have the various races outraged because it is obvious. Part of the reason we are told that we need to answer all the questions is for funding. The government wants to make sure everybody gets their fair share. I believe the government is racist and will assume that minorities have a lower income threshold and thus will need more government service in their area. That is the only explanation that I can come up with.
There was a time in our history when the race questions on the Census were used for a nefarious purpose. During World War II, Japanese-Americans were rounded up and put in internment camps – a very dark time in our history. Census information was used to help facilitate the round up. So the suggestion that this Census information will be locked up for 72 years and not used for any other purpose is a farce.
I will answer my Census truthfully and fairly completely. My telephone number is none of their business as well as most of the question, so I will answer them in a truthful way, but not exact. They don’t need my birthdate, but I will write in “adult”. So I suppose the Census Bureau will come visiting and they will be able to ascertain that I am “white” and scribble that down.
Some might consider that observation that I have made as harsh, but let us look at reality. Last night during my radio show, one of my listeners informed the chatroom that Harry Reid’s wife and daughter had been involved in a serious accident. We sent our well wishes that way because nobody wishes these types of things on anybody regardless of your political differences. One person mentioned that God might be sending the Mouse of the Senate a wake-up call.
A bit later, another listener let the chatroom know that the injuries were not life threatening and that Reid had visited the hospital and then rushed back to D.C. for a meeting with Rahm Emanuel. We all commented what a jerk he was for leaving his wife. At the time, I had no idea exactly why Reid’s family was in the hospital. After my show I read that the Mouse’s wife had a broken back and neck and was in ICU. Now I really think this guy is a first class jerk! This is his wife of over fifty years, I believe. Nothing could tear me away from that bedside at a time like that, not even a political career. In case the Mouse had not noticed, his polls are tanking and re-election will only be possible if his Tea Party candidate scheme works.
Who exactly do we have representing us in Washington? Are these people so sold out to power and control that they not only are not listening to We The People anymore, but they are willing to sacrifice everything for their Progressive Utopia? This incident is an example of just exactly what we are dealing with here: Soulless creatures.
Several months ago the Department of Homeland Security, under the direction of Janet Napalitano, released a report that accused tea party attendees, veterans, anti-government and anti-tax types of being dangerous right-wing extremist domestic terrorists. Now the President has nominated a man to the top of the Transportation Security Administration that seems to agree with Napalitano and the rest of her ilk. Erroll Southers has a past that is distasteful in which he used FBI resources illegally for personal use. And now he has made a claim that is outrageous.
In a 2008 video interview with the Videojug.com website, Errol Southers was asked, “Which home-grown terrorist groups pose the greatest danger to the U.S.?”
Southers answered: “Most of the domestic groups that we have to pay attention to here are white supremacist groups. They’re anti-government and in most cases anti-abortion. They are usually survivalist-type in nature, identity orientated. If you recall, Buford Furrow came to Los Angeles in, I believe, it was 1999. When he went to three different Jewish institutions, museums, and then wound up shooting people at a children’s community center, then shooting a Filipino postal worker later on. Matthew Hale, who’s the Pontifex Maximus of the World Church of the Creator out of Illinois, and Ben Smith, who went on a shooting spree in three different cities where he killed a number of African Americans and Jews and Asians that day. Those groups are groups that claim to be extremely anti-government and Christian-identity oriented.”
So Southers is claiming that this group he described is a Christian group. And he wanted to stress the anti-government part as well, but I am sure that it was not a swipe to members of the Tea Party Movement. The fact is, that this group that these men belong to – World Church of the Creator – is an atheistic organization and is anti-Christian. These claims are made on the “church’s” website. The Anti-Defamation League describes the group as non-believers in eternal life and God. The group changed its name to The Creativity Movement recently.
Southers also claimed that “we will never win” a war on terrorism in the permanent sense, but we can focus on trying to “contain” terrorism. This is really the person we want in charge of our airline safety. Southers should fit in just fine with the rest of the Obama administration that is in denial about the War on Terrorism.
I usually do not discuss much on tabloid fodder here at Freedom’s Wings, but as more women pop out of the woodwork (was that a bad choice of words?) I find myself giving our society a hard look. It comes as no surprise that a rich, world-famous and good-looking athlete has been stepping out on his wife and at a pace that would make George Clooney jealous. What I take issue with is how our society seems to be dealing with an individual that appears to have the moral compass of pond scum. And I do believe that Tiger Woods is pond scum.
Our society bellows against gay marriage and yet seems to take no issue with an individual that does not value marriage. I have been faithful to my partner for over fifteen years now and that is without the benefit of a certificate or the embrace and support of society. And yet, I have heard interview after interview of local golfers here in Florida and people around the nation asking them their opinion on Mistresspalooza (I claim creation rights to that -ha) and these men and WOMEN just shrug their shoulders and claim that it does not change their opinion of him and that it is a private matter. I am sorry, this is not a private issue when this pond scum makes money off of endorsing products he wants me to buy and when he is world-famous and supposedly a person that kids look up to. Not to mention that he is the reason why golf has made such a comeback.
And speaking of endorsements, Nike, Gatorade and Gillette have all come forward and stated that they are sticking by their man. As if Tiger Woods is the victim?! Why do contracts have moral clauses anyway? I do not buy any of those products anyway, but I would think long and hard before I did as long as they continue to stick by their man. This kind of behavior should be shamed to the point that Tiger Woods would have a hard time ever playing golf again because of the letter A on his back. This man not only has no consideration for women, treating his wife this way and using mistresses like prostitutes (what would you call it if he had paid them immediately after having sex with them?) but he has no consideration for his children. Tiger’s father seems to have been a beautiful man whom Tiger proudly shared with all of us. His children sure are going to have a father to be proud of in the future when they learn the truth.
Unfortunately, the reaction to Tiger Woods’ infidelity reflects more on what America has become than on Woods himself. A society that pulls prayer, nativities, the Ten Commandments and God from the center square really should not have more expected of them I suppose. And although I do not support gay marriage, I guess I will have to continue to endure how my relationship is so sinful and dangerous to the family, while people like Tiger Woods are continued to be held up and forgiven even when they have not asked for it or done anything to deserve redemption.
Wonder how the One feels about that cover of Golf Digest he did with Tiger Woods? That comes out this week I believe.
Scott Fenstermaker, the lawyer representing one of the 9/11 terrorists who will stand trial in New York City, appeared on the O’Reilly Factor last night and played a bob and weave game with Bill O’Reilly. O’Reilly pressed him on issue after issue and the lawyer side stepped answers and the answer of the evening that revealed this lawyer to be a hack came after O’Reilly asked Fenstermaker if he felt the 9/11 victims were murdered. Fenstermaker would not answer the question and said it was up to the jury to decide. I understand that when a lawyer represents individuals that he/she needs to be careful with what they say, but what American cannot admit that murder occured in NY? O’Reilly did not ask if he thought his client had committed murder. What a waste of human skin!
Fenstermaker represents Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali and met with the terrorist at GITMO. He was to represent Ali in the military tribunal until Attorney General Eric Holder decided to make a spectacle of the trial and put the prior administration and CIA on trial and so decided to move the trials to civilian court in NY. Now Fenstermaker is revealing that his client plans to plead not guilty and his defense will be that the attacks were justified. They should put the President on the stand because I am sure he would make a good case for the 9/11 terrorists since he has spent the better part of this last year apologizing for America around the world.
The fact that Ali plans to plead not guilty opens up the possibility of acquittal – something we have all feared. And since rumor has it that the terrorists plan to represent themselves with lawyers advising, this trial will be a circus with the terrorists given the ability to spew their rhetoric. I hope these libtards are pleased with what they are about to do to the American people, especially the 9/11 families. I do not know how anyone can believe that the Obama administration has any integrity or principles anymore and if this is not the final nail in Obama’s coffin, I do not know what it will take. More than likely another 9/11 attack, which our President seems to be paving the way to allow to happen.
Under pressure from the Chinese, who now own America and were honored in America with their flag being raised at the White House and the Empire State Building bathed in red and yellow lights, President Obama will not be meeting with the Dalai Lama who is the spiritual leader of Buddhism and Tibet. Since 1991, the Dalai Lama has met with every sitting president. President George W. Bush honored the Dalai Lama with the Congressional Gold Medal. The Dalai Lama has also received the Nobel Peace Prize. But Obama would rather please the Chinese than give this man the respect he deserves.
The Indian Express puts it this way:
In an attempt to gain favour with China, for the first time since 1991 the US President will not meet Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama when he visits Washington this week. President Barack Obama who is scheduled to undertake his first visit to China next month has apparently decided not to meet the Dalai Lama son as not to annoy Beijing.
“The US pressured Tibetan representatives to postpone a meeting between the Dalai Lama and President Obama until after Obama’s summit with his Chinese counterpart, Hu Jintao, scheduled for next month,” Washington Post reported.
The US decision to postpone the meeting appears to be part of a strategy to improve ties with China that also includes soft-pedaling criticism of China’s human rights and financial policies as well as backing efforts to elevate China’s position in international institutions, such as the International Monetary Fund, the report said.
So I wonder how the peace loving liberals who practice Buddhism feel about this? Is Obama still your man since he promises to bring the whole world together? One day, these people on the left will realize what an empty suit of broken promises Obama really is and jump off of his bandwagon. Obama supports China rather than human rights. And really, he has left himself little choice. The government, including past presidents have left him little choice. We are beholden to China, who is our enemy as long as they continue to be Red China, because they own America. But then again, Obama would love to follow the path of China’s leadership.
Today, the trial of former Alabama Circuit Court Judge Herman Thomas begins. This bottom-of-the-muck-barrel individual is facing 103 counts that include sodomy, kidnapping, sexual abuse and extortion. The ex-judge stands accused of forcing male inmates to participate in oral and anal sex and paddling with Thomas promising to take time off their sentences if they cooperated. There are fifteen victims that have come forward thus far.
The NY Daily News reports:
He was once a revered judge, an African-American Democrat repeatedly elected in an Alabama county that was predominantly white and Republican. But then came the scandal – and Herman Thomas’ world turned upside down.
Herman Thomas maintains that he is innocent. Is that why he retired early when the allegations started erupting? Once again we find a Democrat steeped in corruption. Now we all need to know why this man was moved up through the Judicial system. These allegations started to surface in 2001 and yet he was still on the bench until 2007. Was this man moved up because of race? Is this like Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor being moved up through the ranks finally ending up at the Supreme Court merely based on her race? It is a fact that she had the experience for the Supreme Court position, but certainly was not qualified based on her personal opinions about a Latina judge making better judgements than a white judge and that formulating policy from the bench is appropriate.
So I wonder if Herman Thomas’ idea of “mentoring” male inmates really worked? What was the recidivism rate of these inmates? Did fear of another Thomas spanking keep them on the straight and narrow?
