Lap-dogs Don’t Hunt!

Ignore this ... be a good little lapdog!
Be a Good Little Dog … drink the Cool Aid!

A catchy new phrase I heard Hallerin Hilton Hill use on the radio this morning … “Lap-dogs don’t hunt!”  I like it.  It fits so nicely in the discussion of today’s political nonsense!  A fine example of this is the drive-by American news media.  They don’t “hunt” for facts and report “real” news.  They simply sit in Obama’s lap and feed us the “approved” left-wing spin lines as news headlines!  This is how $1 trillion in new taxes gets reported by Politico as $1 trillion in new revenue!  Revenue implies some kind of sales.  Exactly what is the Obama administration selling us?  When the federal government takes more of the money I earned (either directly or an indirectly) and spends it the way that they see fit; that is not “revenue” … that is a tax.  I am not opposed to paying my “fair share” … but the federal government wastes way to much of it.  These are the same folks who are spending $1.5 million to fund a study to see why so many lesbians are fat!  Well, just maybe … it is because they eat too much!  Before the Obama administration raises taxes on me … they better clean up  their spending habits!  I do not make over $250,000 per year, but my taxes have already gone up!

Left-wing liberals want us all to become good little lap-dogs.  Liberal educators love to pay lip service to the idea of developing “critical thinking skills” in our young students today.  It sounds so catchy and impressive when they use it to try and persuade us … doesn’t it?  But what is the real truth?  Why do you need critical thinking skills?  Well, I would say,”to view the choices around you, weigh the pros and cons, and then make an intelligent decision based on that information.”  This would, however, imply that you do not need a “law” or a “ban” to force you to make the right choice.  You make the choice freely of your own volition … and then … you accept the ramifications of that choice!  That is “critical thinking” and that is “freedom.”

If our “liberal educators” actually tought “critical thinking skills” there would be no need for laws banning “big gulp” soft drinks or ear buds.  Nanny Bloomberg, like Barack Obama, thinks he knows what’s best for you!  So, in his mind … you really and truly do not need critical thinking skills at all; and by extension …  freedom of choice should, therefore, be benevolently taken away!  Folks, this is … simply put …  totalitarianism!!  Without choices … there is no Freedom!

They say one thing publicly  … but behind closed doors, they really do something else!  Obama does this repeatedly … over and over … ad nauseum!  Cool Aid drinkers don’t care about it!  Low knowledge voters don’t know about it!  Liberal elitists embrace it!

Here is a PRIME EXAMPLE:  Publicly … liberals loudly proclaim for all to hear,”Our children need to develop critical thinking skills!”   This gets them elected!  But once they are in office you actually get,”Americans aren’t smart enough to make decisions for themselves … so we are banning “64-0unce soda pops, ear buds, and magazines that hold over 8 rounds!”  Folks, if someone hands you a 55-gallon diet coke and a straw … and you actually drink it … you deserve exactly what you get … and you do not then, now, or ever … have the right to take away my freedom of choice because you drank it!

I think this is also why the NEA has led the charge in dumbing down our educational system while fighting tooth and nail against charter schools, school vouchers programs, home schooling, or anything that would allow parents to get their children out of their left-wing brainwashing mills and into a real school where “critical thinking” is actually taught!  You know, a school where it is not illegal to say the Pledge of Allegiance, sing the National Anthem, or teach evolution while at the same time … horror of horrors … mention God!!   A school where reading, writing, and arithmetic take a little more precedence than socialist brainwashing, exploring alternative life-styles, providing morning-after pills, or learning the proper technique for putting a condom on a banana!

Nanny Bloomberg intends to spend lots of time fighting the ruling that halted his “soda pop” ban; because after all, New York City has no other really pressing concerns.  It is much more important to waste a lot of taxpayer money on “soda pop” judicial proceedings,  than to spend more time trying to end serious problems like, oh, say, gangs, rapes, drugs, and violence in New York City!  Oh Wait … my bad … New York City doesn’t have THOSE problems because they have those really strict gun laws!  I forgot!!  Anyway, we should a be good little “lap-dogs” and live our lives according to Bloomberg’s, or Obama’s, commands.  And maybe Bloomberg can really do some good for New Yorker’s … he could ban rape!

Yes indeed!  Good little lap-dogs dote so on their masters,! They are so happy with the little scraps of  food they receive from the table, and squirm with pure glee when they receive that little “pat on the head.”  We should all be good little lap dogs …  because good little lap-dogs would never wonder:

  • Why the U.S. Marines have no money for training because of Sequestration, but the Dept of Homeland Security has an open purchase order for 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition!
  • Why the White House is closed to school children’s tours, but Obama can sell presidential access for $500,000 a visit?
  • Why the administration can spend $1.5 million of my tax dollars to “learn” why so many lesbians are fat … and then say, with a straight face, they need to raise taxes?
  • Why the Royal Family cost British taxpayers about $60 million for expenses last year, while the Obama family cost American tax payers $1.4 billion for expenses?
  • Where was Obama “really,” … when Americans,  including a U.S. Ambassador, were being murdered during an Al Qaeda terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya?
  • Where are all the millions in tax dollars Obama gave to his “bundling buddies” in the so-called “green energy” stimulus scandal?  Still in their grubby little  “bankrupt” pockets?
  • Why “waterboarding” captured terrorists to stop future terrorist attacks is horrific, but using drones to assassinate Americans on Obama’s personal hit list is fine and dandy?
  • How idiots like Congresswoman Diane Feinstein (who thinks it is legal to hunt humans … but is oh so very concerned with how many shots you actually get to kill them) can even get elected?
  • Why such a win-win for the U.S. economy (jobs, friendly neighbor oil supplier, tax revenue) as the Key Stone Pipeline is still being blocked by Obama?
  • Why Eric Holder is STILL in office after the ATF provided Mexican Drug Lords with  more than 100 “assault weapons” that were used to commit brutal crimes including the murder of American Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and 16 young people attending a party in a residential area of Ciudad Juárez in January of 2010.
  • Why Obama shielded Eric Holder behind “executive privilege” even though neither Obama nor Holder “knew anything about it?”

Yes!  Be a good little lap-dog and simply ignore the massive volume of dirty deals, influence peddling, shadow-government Czars, lawlessness, scandals, imperial decrees, and outright violations of the Constitution perpetrated by the Obama administration!

Way too many Cool Aid drinkers are willing close their eyes, sit, beg, get patted on the head, rollover, and trade their freedom and American heritage for a few scraps from the Obama/Bloomberg table!  Well sorry folks … not me!

Unless concerned Americans take action, the Obama administration, left-wing democrats, and certain RINOs intend to continue operating a corrupt, self-serving, greedy, bloated  government … regardless of the law, the U.S. Constitution , or the will of the American taxpayers!  Liberty, Freedom, and the greatest nation on earth will be fundamentally transformed into a pseudo-communist state with the progressive/leftist elites in charge of us all!

And that is why they want … your guns.

2012 Election Votes Count … Please vote!

I find it very interesting that The Tennessean, a long time supporter of Democratic candidates and former employer of Al Gore, should come out endorsing Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. The headline for their endorsement reads, “Time For Another Change.”

 

Hallerin Hilton Hill, on his morning talk radio program yesterday gave a much better answer to the young man who asked the opening question at the second presidential debate:

 

Mr. President, Governor Romney, as a 20-year-old college student, all I hear from professors, neighbors and others is that when I graduate, I will have little chance to get employment. What can you say to reassure me, but more importantly my parents, that I will be able to sufficiently support myself after I graduate?

 

I loved Hallerin’s 11 – point answer to the student’s question.  A caller added a 12th point.  I can’t remember all of them, but I will try and list some of them here as best I can remember:

 

  1. First , get the heck away from the negativity of those professors, neighbors, and others.  Who the heck are they to tell you that you cannot make it?  Stand on your own two feet and decide that your future depends on your efforts … not their negative perceptions.  Surround yourself with positive, supportive professors, neighbors, and others.
  2. Learn to communicate!  Be confident, shake hands, smile, look people in the eyes. Learn to talk like a thinking, educated adult.  I have never been to a job interview were I could sit there and text back and forth with the interviewer!  (Caller)
  3. Be excellent!  Always do your best work. Never be satisfied with doing any less than your best!
  4. Study now … party later.  If 50% of colleges students cannot find jobs after graduation, be sure you are part of the 50% who do!
  5. Pick a career-orientated program.  ORNL needs engineers!  They are importing them from India and China.  Get an engineering degree.  A degree in Women’s Studies, African-American History, Music Appreciation, or Hindu Underwater Basket Weaving, while possibly quite politically correct and popular with liberals, will not provide you with much of a chance at finding a good job!
  6. Dress well!  Look like a professional.  Dave Ramsey puts it like this … “Dress your wage!”

 

These few points I can remember … sound like some pretty sage advice to me!

 

 

 

Yet another side of Racism …

Let me start out by saying I am not a racist.  I try my very best to always judge people individually … based on their actions, their character, their personal integrity, and how they treat me.  I have had black friends, Lebanese friends, Korean friends, Chinese friends, American Indian friends, and other friends of many different races and nationalities I did not even know about.  The popular new idea among many liberals (especially from Minnesota) is that all Whites are racist … they can’t help it.  It is part of their ancestry.  Now … that is a racist idea if I ever heard one!!

I remember when former President, Bill Clinton, was labeled “the first Black President” by the liberal press!  Hmmm!  What was that all about?

So … what about Obama?  Is he the really true first black President?  If so, is being black simply a matter of skin color?

Should I actually be a true racist (according to Ayn Rand‘s definition) and judge Obama … strictly on the basis of his 50% black ancestry?  Well … I guess that would actually make him kind of gray … because he is only half black.

Or, should I actually judge him based on his failed policies, corrupt political dealings, unconstitutional shadow-government-based administration, and wanton wasting of my tax dollars, etc. … and risk being called a racist by liberal race-baiters?

Actually, I think I agree with a post I read on a blog by UT Professor, Harold Black  … who from what I can tell is a very intelligent black conservative … that says that Obama is black simply as a matter of political convenience.

If we are supposed to judge folks by their actions, character, habits, etc. …. this is really not too much of a stretch.  It is only if we judge Obama racially … on his color … that we have a racial problem.

Wasn’t he, after all,  raised by his white grandparents?  Didn’t he go to mostly white private schools? Didn’t he graduate from Columbia and Harvard? When did he actually become black?  Perhaps,as Harold Black says, it was when he decided to run for political office.  While I disagree that Obama is very smart … he is indeed very clever.  Those two qualities are not the same.  Obama probably did figure out that being black was his best chance to be elected to political office.

So for Barack Obama, I think I agree … his new-found blackness is simply a matter of convenience.

Is Obama a friend of black people.  Unemployment among blacks has sky-rocketed under Obama.  And … who are Obama’s people anyway?  Are they Bernanke, Geithner, Romer  Axelrod, Plouffe, Volcker, Emanuel, Gibbs, and Carney?  Not a black person among them I can see.  I do not think Obama is a friend to black people.  In fact, truthfully, many black people have been adversely affected by Obama’s socialist ideology-driven policies.  There are many black people I really respect like Alan West, Condaleeza Rice, Clarence Thomas, Alan Keyes, and Hallerin Hilton Hill who would, I think agree, with that premise.  I do suspect that … if Obama were white … we would be seeing many blacks rioting in the street.

It is kind of funny in away! As Mr. Black noted, you simply do not find many blacks in key positions in Obama’s administration!  President Bush did have Colin Powel and Condaleeza Rice.  I had great respect for Colin Powell as a military man … until he became a politician, fell under Obama’s spell, and switched allegiance.  Condaleeza Rice is one smart lady and a true credit to her race … that is if you measure her based on intelligence, character, work ethic, and personal integrity.  I suppose race baiters would call her a Race Traitor, an Auntie Tom, or maybe an Oreo … who knows?

But wait … you say; “Obama has lots of black supporters!”

Well yes!  I know he does … or at least it seems that way on the surface.  Race-baiters like Jesse Jackson, Maxine Waters, Van Jones, and Al Sharpton (and their followers) support Obama.  But these guys also know that their wealth and their personal success are closely tied to keeping the un-washed masses brain-washed and drinking the cool aid!  This is accomplished by attacking the so-called one percent (while … trying to keep you from waking up and remembering they are actually members of “one percent” group) and, of course,  the republicans.

Playing this race card is simply a means to shift the focus; an attempt to lay the blame on successful, hard-working  Americans … people who it is easy to be jealous of; rather than on the democrats and Obama … who are busy growing government,  destroying jobs,  and preventing needed reforms that would spur economic growth and a recovery that would benefit all people.

I think in another time and in another place; some blacks (like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton) would have been calling Obama … the Oreo.

Don’t Bring Your Momma’s Tack Hammer!!

I was listening to the Hannity Show awhile back and Sean was interviewing some leader of the Occupy Wall Street Movement.  This angry young man had amassed over $200,000 in student loans.  He felt the government should pay for his school, his housing, his food, etc.,  He stated he was not against working but that he would not work for less than $80,000 per year starting salary (and ummm … that’s was with no job experience).  Is this the kind of entitlement-minded, narcissistic idiots our NEA controlled public school system is producing for us  today?  An “entitlement kiddie” with his head full of socialist ideals and unsustainable utopian theories, and absolutely no work ethic, drive to succeed, real life experience, wisdom, or common sense?  I am so glad I do not have young children in today’s public school system.  I guess they would have to be “Home Schooled!”

What I want to know is … where was this kid’s grandfather?  I remember the “pearls of wisdom” my grandfathers passed on to me that helped shape the man I am today.  They helped form my work ethic, my sense of working for and earning what I receive, and … how to treat other people. Both of my grandfather’s worked at Remington Arms in Ilion, New York.  They were hardworking, blue-collar, honest men who gave a day’s work for a day’s wage.  They saved their money, provided for their families, and turned out the terrific, hardworking youngsters who later became my parents.  They suffered, they learned, they loved, and they sacrificed … for their families and their country.  They also developed a lot of real wisdom as they earned their wrinkles and lost their gray hair during those years following WWII.  I still remember some of these “Pearls of Wisdom ” like:

  • Measure twice, cut once!
  • Always return a tool in better shape than it was in when you borrowed it.
  • Can’t never could do anything
  • I sawed it off twice and it’s still too short.
  • It’s not what you say, it’s what you do that matters
  • The only people who never make mistakes are the people who never do anything

Hallerin Hilton Hill had a caller this morning on his radio talk show who related a story about his father.  His father was a life-long carpenter.  The caller told us how, from the time he was thirteen, he spent his summers helping his father; getting yanked out of bed early, toting 2 x 4 ‘s, driving nails, etc.  He worked and earned his own money.  He even bought his own school clothes throughout his years in middle school and high school.  That work ethic is with him to this day.  I especially like the part of the story where he talked about his dad‘s method of interviewing possible new crew members.  Of course, they would always claim to have many years of experience framing houses, building decks, etc.  His dad would shrug that off and simply ask to see the guy’s hammer.  I guess it was pretty obvious by looking at the guy’s hammer what kind of experience he had?  The caller told how once, his dad even turned and threw the guys hammer into the river and said something like, “Boy, don’t ever bring your mamma’s tack hammer to a carpenter’s job interview!”   I guess the guy probably didn’t get the job.

We need parents in this country who take the time to teach their kids real values, life skills, and common sense; to teach them how to get up when they fall down.  We need our grandfather’s wisdom to be passed down again.  Our country needs Americans who believe in hard work, in earning what you get, who have the gumption to get back up if they get knocked down, and who love their country!  We already have more than enough parasites who hope to fundamentally transform our country so they can simply lay back and suckle at the government’s teat … or folks who show up with their momma’s tack hammer and expect $80,000 a year!
