Our children's Future

For my Christmas this year, I am lucky enough to have my grand kids here with me. As I look at them, I wonder just what our legacy is actually going to be. What have we left them or maybe a better question, what have we done to them?

My forefathers fought for and built the greatest country this world has ever known, one that opened her arms to all and embraced them with the promise of equal rights and freedom. Yes, we had some bad bumps on the way, but slowly and surely we built upon the foundations left to us from those wonderful folks who fought a Revolution and a Civil War. There were mistakes and there were triumphs. One wondrous thing came out of it. The United States of America!

However, one must be circumspect and take a look at us now. So many people in this nation now stand with their hands out, unwilling to help themselves. They only concern themselves with their own selfishness. Even as we try to right the wrongs of the past, the racist leaders out there prefer to preach hate and entitlement instead of “strive for perfection’, a right that is granted to all.

We have the powerful pitting the rich against the poor. They penalize achievement. They take away incentive. And they have the utter gall to tell a family that government are the only ones that have the right to one’s life earnings once they die, family be damned! Funny, I don’t remember anything in the constitution saying government has the right to my family’s trust. Yet people like Barney Frank says it belongs the government.

We have a Mainstream Media that is nothing more than a propaganda arm for this government. Lies galore as this one:
Republicans block youth immigration bill
“Senate Republicans on Saturday doomed an effort that would have given hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants a path to legal status if they enrolled in college or joined the military”

Anyone with one ounce of brains knows that the Democrats had unstoppable majorities in both houses, yet the media reports that the opposition blocked this and other so called worthy bills when in fact as in this instance, the President’s own party had defections and they in fact stopped this bad bill. Yet, the media prefers to tell the big lie. Yes Virginia, we are teaching our children to lie. The President does it, our elected officials do it and the media follows suit. In turn, our educators teach the same lies and parents are vilified (Michelle Obama statement: We can’t leave it to the parents”). When does it stop?

The list is too long to go on and I’m sure you get my drift. The lies keep coming and our future generations will suffer. As if that isn’t bad enough, we have the fact that this country is now following the socialist model that this treasonous President and Congress have chosen for it. The debt owed by our children and grandchildren is staggering! The income redistribution espoused by this President and his Marxist cronies is not only destroying our country as we know it, it is taking away any hope for our children's and grand children’s future.

I for one do not want my children to live under the Marxist dictatorship that is headed our way. I do not say this lightly! History is supposed to teach us yet this country led by this Socialist president and congress is in the process of yanking our children’s future out from under them. Our education system is in shambles as is evidenced by a study that came out just the other day that 23% or something like that (forgot the exact figure, but it was high) of people enlisting in the armed services cannot pass the simple basic knowledge testing! This is what we’ve done for our children. Basically we have a government that wants the people to be nothing more than servile.

Our children do not deserve this! For the first time in my life, I do not see us being able to leave our children a better country! I look at my grandchildren and wonder. What could I have done better? What can we as a people do to save our country for our children? This might be the most important question of them all. Our children are indeed our future. If we choose to keep going down the path we are now pursuing, I fear their future will be one of Marxist enslavement. I fear for our children as we all should! We need to take our country back now, for their sake if not for ours.

A Loss and some Tirades

Before I get into my tirade of the day, I want to comment on the loss today of Ron Santo. Many days when I was young, I sat on the third base side of Wrigley and was privileged to witness the play of one of the greatest third basemen of our time (no disrespect here to Brooks Robinson who, Cubs fan that I am was and is the greatest). A skilled player and feisty competitor, Santo, along with Banks, Kessinger, Williams and the others always were able to remind me that the game is just that, a game. He, along with Banks, spent God knows how much time signing autographs and talking to us kids. Imagine that! He actually would walk up to us and talk. And although one could always see the joy in his game. I will never forget the look on his face when the last out was played in “69” and the Cubs had blown that lead. The pain was there for all to see. We have lost a marvelous ball player and a hell of a man.

Now, Tirade number 1. As all now know, we have in progress for all to see the Wikileaks fiasco going on. We have the NYT stating these leaks make for transparency and as such they should be published (this from the same entity that refused to publish the leaked memos that debunk climate change due to the fact that they were stolen. Such hypocrisy) We have Hillary expressing her outrage and for all practical purposes, not a word from our moron in chief who at this moment, as usual has run away, in this instance to Afghanistan to avoid addressing any situation that reflects badly on his administration. My question here. Where is the real outrage from these clowns? This is the third set of leaks! We had a statement for the Attorney General. He said they were going to investigate this severe breach of security. Probabaly the only reason he commented at all is because this set of leaks illustrates how badly this administration conducts foreign policy. Don’t have to defedt the Bush administration, but sure as heel, he has to defend the Bozo administration. Then what? He headed across the pond to lobby for the World Cup! Can anyone out there tell me why the AG needed to do this? That was more important than enforcing our laws?

As if that isn’t bad enough, we have the Anti-American left propaganda machine known as the MSM actually trying to justify and find excuses for the man who stole the secrets (For what it’s worth, I truly believe there is more than just PFC. Manning involved in this). So, my slant on this as I’ve posted on other sites.

“First and foremost. This is treason of the highest order! PFC. Manning and if possible this Assange guy ( and I know we cannot charge him with treason, he’s a foreigner) should be tried and executed as should any others involved. Those are my beliefs. As an example, being a Jew, my ears perked up when Bibi put as a condition to stall settlements on the West Bank the release of Jonathan Pollard. As we all know, he was spying for Israel. Some folks seem to think as he was doing it for an all, he should be cut some slack. NO! He is a spy! He committed treason against this country. As such he should have been shot as should the 2 people mentioned above.
The really galling part is the NYT as well as our moron Attorney General? This has been going on for some time now. As one will never convince me that there are not so many more people involved than just the PFC in these releases, one must ask not only where is the outrage against scum bag papers like the NYT, but also exactly what are our investigative entities doing about this? There seems to be little outrage on the left. The President is hiding, the Secretary of State is out trying to pull the covers over it and security apparatus of this country is too busy branding our own citizens as extremists, choosing to ignore the real enemies of this country. One could well start with the NYT as one of those real enemies. The very fact that this so called “Paper of Record” can openly try to justify publishing this is in my view an act of treason as well. They put their open leftist agenda above the good of our country.”

Now as to the leaks. So far, what has come out has pretty well been known or suspected by all. The one leak I really want to comment on is in reference to missiles that have not only been sold to Iran from N.Korea, but also they in fact have missiles that can travel 2,000 miles. In effect, the NORKS can easily deliver a bomb over the border where we have 35,000 troops based. I have commented on this numerous times in the past. When madmen rule, bad things can and do happen. One cannot and should not negotiate with madmen and ideologues. One must put this politically correct B.S, aside and do what they must! In Iran’s case, the hell with the we mustn’t upset the Muslims crap! In the case of N.Korea, we must not stand by and wait until the madman does something stupid. Our weakness is on display for all and China is reaping the benefits! As I posted on other sites:

“This whole problem stems back to our friend Weird Willie (Mr. Clinton for you leftists out there) He allowed missile guidance technology to be sold to the Red Chinese who in turn gave it to the NORKS. The fact that the NORKs in turn sent entire missiles to Tehran fits in perfectly with the Red Chinese aim of disrupting the U.S. and her allies. Also, as I have said in past posts. This proves not only the fact that the NORKs do indeed have a delivery system, but also points out the grave danger to not only our troops in the south, but to the entire region.”

Finally, there have been numerous stories and what not as to the obsession the MSM and the Left have with Sarah Palin. Other than the fact that they basically will continue to throw hate and condescension towards her hoping to convince the electorate she is in effect not worthy of their votes, I find most of it quite funny. However, I am fed up with Media idiots going not only after her family, but most politicians’, families if they don’t agree with what the left wants! Case in point, Bristol Palin.
There’s no need to go into the Dancing With The Stars B.S. or anything else as to this discussion. The other night, Keith Olberman, as is his wont, went off on Bristol, basically questioning her right to speak out in behalf of abstinence as to teenage sex. Basically as Bristol is a teen mother, this should in effect disqualify her from trying to inform the teens of our country to not make the same mistake she made. I wonder sometimes how the Palins and other political families ( I would even include the President in this if they ever go after his children) put up with this. Enough from me on this. I will let Bristol defend herself in her own words below. She states perfectly how a person can and should mature and learn from their mistakes, a lesson many politicians and journalists should learn themselves.

“What Mr. Olbermann lacks in originality he makes up for with insincere incredulity. Mr. Olbermann fails to understand that in order to have credibility as a spokesperson, it sometimes takes a person who has made mistakes. Parents warn their children about the mistakes they made so they are not repeated. Former gang members travel to schools to educate teenagers about the risks of gang life. Recovered addicts lecture to others about the risks of alcohol and drug abuse. And yes, a teen mother talks about the benefits of preventing teen pregnancy.
I have never claimed to be perfect. If that makes me the "worst person in the world" to Mr. Olbermann, then I must apologize for not being absolutely faultless like he undoubtedly must be.”
