From the spring inside your pen to the most complex cancer fighting tools one should always remember that these were created by someone, some individual motivated by the economic forces of profit and the creativity of the human spirit. The danger of government taking over all these jobs usually performed by the private sector is that they will only destroy this drive and ambition and thus kill the creativity and motivation of the entrepreneur . It is useful to remember that government does not build a better mousetrap but, rather it is the individual who serves that purpose. The more government meddles the worse this situation gets. There is no question the future of this nation will be dismal with the continued over extension of government in our lives.
The ongoing Senate Hearings on the appointment of Sonya Sotamayor to the Supreme Court have become another symbol of how things have gone wrong in our country. What used to be a search for the best Jurist to serve on the nations highest court, has disintegrated into a partisan political affair. It is difficult and painful to watch this process unfold as the two opposing sides line up to either defend or denigrate this nominee. One would wonder why the Republicans loathe her so, when she was previously appointed to her present position by former President George H.W. Bush. Hopefully, she will be able to rise above the fray and if appointed, serve to interpret the Constitution and not to seek to use her position to make law. Too often in recent years some of the Justices have used their position to make law rather than just interpreting existing law. It looks like she will soon be approved, we have to hope that she does a good job and puts country ahead of sex, nationality or religion. If not our problems will only continue to grow.
We are living in a time of great distress and upheaval in America. Everywhere you turn there are serious problems and challenges against our nation, caused to a great extent by the lousy and corrupt politicians serving in our government at the present time. Without the benefit of term limits, it appears that this current system is collapsing rather quickly under its own weight. Politicians at the federal and state levels are making extremely poor choices in every area of our lives from economic to health care. In essence it is like watching an individual slowly self destruct yet, you feel powerless to help and you know it is only going to get worse and worse in the next few years, All of those bastions of government that in the past have truly cared for the country are now helping the nation to its eventual demise. Politicians have become the most destructive force with their elitist arrogance and general stupidity. It appears that anything they touch, they destroy or at the very least cripple. Be it the military, health care, taxes, the economy and everything in between. Without the fear of being driven out of office they remain for long periods of time, decades in many cases, consolidating their control and influence over us. We are being duped by these schemers, to surrender our precious freedoms and rights. They are gutting this country, not quickly, but instead in an almost indiscernible slow and methodical way. Its like being eaten by a million ants, each taking one mouthful rather than being swallowed whole. Time is running out for Americans to stand up to this subtle take over. We must demand term limits and vote in opposition to all incumbents to allow for a new crop of untainted leaders to emerge. Then we must make demands on those politicians to return this country to its people. Follow its laws as written, remove all illegal aliens, deport as necessary. Stop paying American taxpayer money to fund these illegals. Punish any company that employs them. There are many grassroots websites and organizations springing up all across America. We must unite to take back this country or soon it will be too late.
Interesting story of the past week in that the new Republican "Messiah" has decided to forgo her final 18 months as Governor of Alaska and to resign in late July. Though the move "sent shockwaves" through the Republican Party, it really shouldn't come as much of a surprise. It was proven pretty clearly this past election, that the Idiot American Voter would be very willing to vote someone in to the highest office in the land with only limited experience. Why bother finishing your term when you need two full years of attention to make a run at the White House. I'll at least give her some credit, she is being upfront about it. Bail now and put your full attention on the White House, NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! This is a rather sick joke but, just another step in the general decline of America. It's happening on all fronts so no big deal that our politicians are rookies, especially when they can have one finger on the NUKE BUTTON. We need to come to grips with the fact that this nation, much like the Romans, is in serious and rapid decline. Where have all the Statesmen gone?
Well now that Michael Jackson has had his day perhaps we can go back to some semblance of normality in our own lives. The media frenzy over the funeral and memorial today was utterly outrageous and over the top. To have major networks represented at the the funeral of a pop star is beyond me and points directly to the crap that is TV News today. Now one must ask how much of this is done to appease black folks. I have come to believe that it is my duty as a white working man, to constantly appease, please and generally take care of the black man. We want to keep him as happy as possible at all times. What a joke. A bunch of law breaking punks and thugs coming on and get air time to tell us we didn't honor the guy enough when he was living and perhaps we should feel guilty. Notice how the guilt trip is used in every aspect of black and white relations . Buying millions of his records, selling out all his concerts, mobbing him at every turn was not enough homage according to the likes of Al "Toot My Own Horn" Sharpton. After all MJ was the poster boy for the Civil Rights Movement. He was the Rosa Parks/MLK in his efforts in this regard----NOT. What a joke, AL "the pimp" was there to sell his wares. What does Al sell? Well sonny, he likes to sell the idea that the black folk ain't ever getting enough love from whitey and it is the white working man's duty to do what ever will make him and the other race-baiters happy. AL Sharpton had as much need in speaking at this memorial as David Duke would have. Michael Jackson may have been a lot of things but, he was NOT a leader in the Civil Rights Movement. Don't get me wrong Jackson was very good at what the does, maybe the best in the world but shouldn't WE take a serious look at what is important to American's lives and survival. If you think it is always racial, then lets honor all the black soldiers that have given their lives in the recent wars, or the black cops who died while on duty, or the firemen. What about their memorial? Where is Anderson Cooper and Katie Curic for that? How very sad that supposed professional news reporters are no better than the common scum of tabloid journalism. Since Jackson's death over a dozen US Troops were killed in Afghanistan and Iraq---name ONE? Memorialize ONE? Can't can you?? Yet if I said, "What are the names of Michael's children, you would know that I bet. This nonsense is destroying our country and is about as disgusting as it gets.
