Dear Obama, Please Leave Me Alone

Dear Obama, I'm not a member of the elite. I'm not a millionaire and I don't claim to have any power or influence. I'm just an average taxpayer who lives in fly-over country. On behalf of all the Suzy Homemaker's and Joe Six-Pack's who are my neighbors, I'd like to request a favor. Please, please, leave us alone. With all due respect for your office Mr. Obama, you were not elected to tell me what to do. You were elected to protect and defend my right to do it, as long as it's not illegal. (Please refer to the 10th amendment) I left home years ago and have learned how to take care of myself. I don't need, or want you dictating to me how much salt I can use, where I can smoke, what car I can drive, which light bulbs to use, what temperature I set my thermostat to, which religions and sexual preferences I should respect, and which thoughts I can express. I know you're all in favor of choice, so please respect mine. Please, please just leave me alone. I'd also appreciate if you could leave my doctor, insurance company, bank and employer alone. It seems that everything you do in my name just costs me more money. Money I can't afford because I'm on a very tight budget for the next two years. And unlike you, I can't just print some more. I would if I could. (Ha Ha, just kidding) While we're on the subject, could you please pass along a message to your wife? Please tell her that, even though I am no "expert, " I'd prefer if she quit trying to regulate the behavior of my kids. I know best what their diet, education and beliefs should be. I know she's spending a lot of our money on her good works, but I'm firmly convinced that if she just concentrated on Sasha and Malika -and her own garden - we would all be much better off. I hope this doesn't sound rude Mr President, but most of the stuff you and Michelle are doing up there in D.C. are things that are morally, legally, personally and constitutionally just none of your business. You are not my daddy. Sir. On a more positive note: Here's a big shout out for your handling of the Egypt crisis. Even though it took a week, you finally took a stand. You looked very presidential. Personally, I'm not convinced you should have chosen sides so early, but, like you, I was pretty http://rightbias.c om/news/020411alon e.aspx  (Feb 8, 2011 | post #1)

Lynn Woolsey: A National Embarrassment

My nephew, Lance Corporal Lee Morgan, will be deploying to Afghanistan next Friday. This will be his second tour of duty there. Lee will be putting his life on the line, once again, fighting a war described by Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA) as "an epic failure, a national embarrassment, and a moral blight." While my nephew is risking his life to fight the war on terror, Ms. Woolsey is exercising her right to polish her moral vitaes (on the backs of others) by blithely passing judgment on what the Obama administration has redefined as merely an "overseas contingency operation." Rep. Woolsey's right, by the way, has been granted her by the blood of Lee's compatriots and all the other brave young men who have died in service to our country. Spitting on the graves of those who have died in their nation's service is just one of the rights secured to Ms. Woolsey by the blood and sweat of others. A free press is... http://rightbias.c om/news/010711wool .aspx  (Jan 10, 2011 | post #1)

Taking a Stand Against Political Correctness

Political correctness is loosely defined as "avoidance of expressions or actions that can be perceived to exclude or marginalize or insult people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against." In other words, millions of Americans have willingly allowed themselves to be placed in the losing position of continually being forced to prove a negative. "I'm not a racist," "I'm not homophobic," "I'm not a greedy capitalist".. .ad nauseum. Political correctness is a hugely successful campaign that has effectively altered traditional standards of behavior in order to advance the political agenda of mostly left-leaning groups. From gay rights, to feminism to open borders, PC rules dictate that you conform with the prevailing group-think at the risk of social ostracism. The amazing thing about PC is that no-one has yet fought back against the complete idiocy and transparent manipulation that is its very essence. Until now. I have decided to quit enabling useful idiots by continuing to mouth the politically correct group thoughts that threaten to snuff out opposing opinions under the guise of tolerance and compassion. I never voted for these idiotic rules. I never agreed to them. And I refuse to abide by them. I will not let others dictate manners to me. I was brought up to be respectful of others and to live by the Golden Rule. In other words, I have good manners. So why should I allow others to impose their "manners " on me? Especially when their "manners " only apply to favored groups. Conservative women can be called whores, and the Virgin Mary can be covered in dung and called art, but God forbid anyone acknowledge that many blacks have willingly let themselves be enslaved to the government entitlement system. Or that some people will always be poor because they are just plain stupid and lazy - and subsidizing them with my tax dollars only encourages more stupid and lazy behavior. The majority of them have chosen to rely on others for their existence - but that doesn't mean I must grant them "oppressed " status. Acquiescing to political correctness only serves to enable it. And I will no longer enable arbitrary rules whose main goals serve only to contradict traditional values and undermine American and individual exceptionalism. Here are a few basic facts. America is the greatest country the world has ever known. We have equality of opportunity, not outcome. Respect must be earned, not granted, and promoting self-esteem is just a subtle message that it's OK and even desirable to be selfish. Most politically correct "elites" who purport to speak for you have been educated way beyond their intelligence. Life isn't fair and everyone is not equal. If any of your "rights" are paid for by others, they not rights, they are entitlements. And redefining words to make them politically correct does not change the underlying reality. A rose is a rose and a jerk is a jerk. Shakespeare once said, "There is no right or wrong, only the definition that makes it so." I have decided that I will no longer allow politically correct idiots with a vested agenda to define my words for me. I am not willing to adopt someone else's definition of right and wrong at the expense of my own. With a black man in the White House, I have also decided that I will no longer lower my voice when discussing race. And since I graduated from high school long ago, I've decided that I will never refer to words by their first letter. Those that refer to "the n word" or "the p word" are people who have willingly allowed others to set the rules. They are sheep who have acquiesced to group-think in a vain attempt to appear "with-it. " From now on, I will call a lie a lie, ... http://rightbias.c om/News/110110pc.a spx  (Dec 13, 2010 | post #1)

How to tell if you're a conservative

For too long, conservatives have allowed the left to define them. With more Americans becoming disillusioned with Obama, it's time to counter the media's portrayal of conservatives as radical, illegitimate extremists, concerned only with amassing wealth and kicking gays. Here's a quick guide to help identify the basic differences between leftists and conservatives. Conservatives understand that the system of capitalism is the greatest engine of wealth creation the world has ever known. They don't think profit is a dirty word. Leftists argue that feelings, not the bottom line, should be the motivating factor in all of life's decisions. Conservatives believe that a man's fate is determined by the life choices he makes. Leftists believe if they're not successful, its because racist capitalists are hogging all the wealth. And that's not fair! Conservatives know that life isn't fair and never will be. Leftists think that it should be, and that if you vote for them, they can legislate fairness. After they redefine it. Conservatives know that throwing money at a problem usually ends up making the problem worse. Leftists believe that money can solve any problem. Preferably someone else's money. Conservatives believe Thomas Sowell's assertion that there are no solutions - there are only trade-offs. Leftists believe that there are still free lunches, that rights trump responsibilities, and victims are more 'valid' than producers. And if you don't agree, you're just a big ol' meanie. Conservatives applaud merit. Leftists applaud intentions. Conservatives believe words have meanings. Leftists believe they have the right to redefine whatever words they care to. Leftists believe if a theory looks good on paper, it will work. Conservatives understand that reality doesn't work that way, except in ivory towers. Conservatives know that, these days, government is the problem. Leftists believe more government is the solution. And they will willingly create and/or exacerbate a crisis in order to prove it. (See link) Conservatives believe in accountability, that actions speak louder than words. Leftists have succumbed to the herd mentality that sanctions bad behavior as long as it is done in the name of whichever leftist policy is most popular, be it global warming or the belief that everything bad that happens to the Obama administration is George Bush's fault. Conservatives believe in individual rights, not group rights. They know that leftist ...http://rightbia s.com/news/071210v ic.aspx  (Sep 20, 2010 | post #1)

Obama is not telling the truth

Obama is increasingly resembling the errant husband, who, when caught in bed with another woman by his wife blandly asserts, "What woman? Who are you going to believe - me or the evidence of your own eyes?" Obama is asking Americans to ignore the evidence of their own eyes and believe him. After all, he is the President of the United States, which implies honor, integrity, and character. Or used to. Calling the president a liar is a serious charge. But either Obama is lying to America or he is seriously misinformed, which is even scarier. With a straight face, President Obama recently stated, "I am seriously committed to fiscal responsibility. " Hey, maybe the left redefined fiscal responsibility while I was asleep last night, but Obama's claim just doesn't accord with reality. Obama has added more to our national debt than all other U.S. presidents -- combined. And is in the process of adding another $50 billion that we don't have, as you read this.

How many people attended the Glenn Beck rally?

The question on the minds of millions of Americans this morning: How many people attended Glenn Beck's 'Restoring Honor' rally yesterday in our nations' capitol? The answer to this question has ramifications far beyond mere crowd size. It is one of the few concrete indicators of the popularity and viability of the Tea Party and their message of traditional values, less government and a return to our Founders' vision of America.

Real Men

Rush Limbaugh stated emphatically last week that "Real men aren't liberal. And real men, real men, don't vote for liberals." Rush, once again, hits the nail on the head. And here's why. Real men have an innate sense of self that is not dependent on group approval. They have not succumbed to the sanitized, homogenized, and feminized version of manhood that the academic, media, and political elite have adopted. Instead, they have the courage to form their own opinions, relying on independent thinking instead of political correctness. Liberal males, on the other hand, have taken the much easier path of allowing a group identity to define who they are. They have willingly adopted the leftists' focus on feelings and emotions when confronted with immutable facts, thus allowing them the ability to retain the all-important moral high ground when those facts prove inconvenient. Liberal males allow the left to define the issues and set the rules. These rules allow them to claim morality, compassion, and virtue the easy way - by voting to spend someone else's money on whomever the left designates as the latest "victim" group. As an added bonus, liberal males are allowed to define their own reality, under the guise of "empowerment. " They are not held accountable when the policies they vote for fail. They are judged on intentions instead of outcomes. Real men have chosen the harder path of relying on themselves to provide for themselves and their families. They have learned through experience that relying on government is a losing proposition. They know what liberal males don't - that government is the source of their problems, not the solution. And they vote accordingly. Liberal males have chosen to follow the rule of man instead of the rule of God because, as Russian novelist Feodor Dostoyevsky once said: "If there is no God, everything is permitted." Real men choose to follow the rule of God. Guess which path is easier? Liberal males have adopted the ... http://rightbias.c om/news/081310men. aspx  (Aug 16, 2010 | post #1)

Choosing Homosexuality

Neal Boortz claimed last week that a person's sexuality is "ordained in the womb." Meaning homosexuality, as Boortz sees it, is not a choice. Though I usually agree with Boortz, I beg to differ. In today's culture, homosexuality is increasingly being presented as a lifestyle option. Science has yet to determine if there is such a thing as a "gay gene" which predetermines sexual orientation. Lacking definitive proof of hard-wired homosexuality, the left does what it usually does in situations where the facts don't coincide with their ideology. - they "deem" it is so. Just as they did with the "man-made global warming crisis" and the canard that second-hand smoke causes cancer. Many Americans would be shocked to know that, to date, no scientific link has been proven between man and global warming, or between second-hand smokers and cancer. And no-one has found the elusive "gay gene." The left has merely deemed that it is so, despite the lack of hard evidence. Pretty much the way they passed this years' budget. Dems didn't want to go on record voting for yet more pork, so the powers that be decided to forego the vote and "deem" the budget passed. Cool stuff. Dan Rather crystallized this leftist tactic when he was caught relying on falsified documents regarding George Bush's war record. Rather declared that the documents were "fake, but accurate." This mind set of believing whatever comports with one's ideology despite facts to the contrary has spread throughout the culture and has become an accepted practice on the left. Hey, even if there is no proof, it's true. So there. And if you don't agree, you're a racist homophobe. End of discussion. Twenty years of promoting homosexuality, under the guise of "tolerance " has resulted in legitimizing what used to be officially labeled an aberrant lifestyle. To today's children, being gay is a choice. An extension of the cult of "empowerment " that teaches kids that they have the right to define their own reality. And the right to sleep with whomever they choose, regardless of gender. The celebration of homosexuality by the political and media elite is a constant. Popular shows like Law and Order routinely have well-known characters parrot the unproven "gay-gene " theory as fact. CBS, in order to maintain their politically correct credentials, has just agreed to include more gay characters on their shows. Being gay is now considered "cutting edge." Young girls routinely swap spit as a way to show how with it they are. Young boys are being encouraged to not only tolerate the gay lifestyle, but to accept it as a legitimate lifestyle option. For celebrities and celebrity wannabes, coming out of the closet is a great way to achieve a quick 15 minutes of fame. And gain instant cachet. So to you, Neal Boortz, I say that being homosexual in America today is most definitely a choice. A choice that has dire ramifications for the future of America. And for the poor kids who are being used as pawns in the progressive's war on tradition, marriage, God and family.

I Discriminate

I discriminate. All the time. When I see black teenagers with gang tats coming towards me, I'll move to the other side of the street. Now if they were carrying Bibles, I might not be as worried. If I play backgammon with an Asian, I use different tactics than I would with say, an Irishman. Experience has taught me that Asians excel in math and I adopt my tactics accordingly. If I am going to pick a winner on Dancing With Stars, I'll pick the black couple, hands down. As a rule, blacks just dance better than whites. (Can I say that?) If I need to hire someone to do yard work, I'll choose a Mexican laborer over a welfare recipient any day. Experience has taught me that Mexicans, both legal and illegal, have a better work ethic than do those who rely on welfare. Not a day goes by that I don't discriminate. The left calls this racism. I call it survival. To ignore years of life experience in favor of government mandated political correctness is the height of folly. No-one has the right to legislate morality. And no-one has the right to demand that I believe the leftists' mantra that all cultures and people are equal. That's just plain stupid. People in the U.S. are born equal. The decisions they make throughout their lives, however, result in far different outcomes. Some decide to spend their lives pursuing a free lunch, while some decide to become productive members of society. In my book, that means the one who contributes to society has more value than the one that doesn't. They are not equal. The American culture beats the Arab culture hands down. At least for females. And the culture in my little neighborhood in Murrells Inlet most assuredly trumps the culture in most inner cities. By any measure. That's just reality. I personally don't care for deadbeats. I choose not to associate with them. I also don't care to associate with radical feminists, global warming idiots or race baiters. Experience has taught me that I just don't do well when confronted with useful idiots. It's a choice I choose to make. It's discrimination. For leftists to insist that I ignore cultural and personal differences, to insist that I adhere to their ever-changing version of reality, is akin to asking me to believe that white is black. America is still based on individual freedom. That includes the freedom to decide for myself. It's called "having an opinion." Why should I agree to suspend my own judgement in favor of a mealy-mouthed platitude whose main purpose is to confer faux moral superiority on any useful idiot who opts to parrott the politically correct soundbite of the day? Discrimination is a survival tool. It's wisdom, not discrimination, to learn from past experiences. And to apply that knowledge in everyday choices. Since I acknowledge that there are differences between different races, I guess I'm also a racist. Believe it or not, we all are. Hey, I wouldn't put an Asian with a mathematics degree on the basketball court. But according to the left, that means I am "profiling. " Color me guilty. I admit it. I profile people based on their race and appearance. Somehow, it just doesn't sink in that a young skinhead sporting a Nazi tattoo is the equal of say, Thomas Sowell. Based on the skinhead's appearance, I form conclusions about him. The conclusions may be wrong, but I'm not going to bet on it. And I'm not going to invite to dinner the black guy I saw on TV dressed in military gear telling everyone to kill white babies. Life experience has taught me that he is an ignorant racist who banks on our new "culture of equality" to shield him from being held accountable for his hateful rhetoric. In my opinion, he's just trash. When I see an obese 29 year-old mother of six living on welfare, I make assumptions. When I see http://rightbias.c om/news/071310dis. aspx  (Jul 14, 2010 | post #1)

Hating Jews

Last month, students at a Southern California high school were caught playing a late-night on-campus game of tag called "Beat the Jew." On the popular social networking site Facebook, a user named Alex Cookson launched an open invitation to an event called “Kill a Jew Day.” It was the fourth time that a call to murder Jews had been put on Facebook within recent days. In D.C., White House press doyen Helen Thomas was captured on tape nonchalantly opining that all Jews should go back to Germany. Implicit in her statement was her assumption that everyone felt the same way, so what's the big deal? Also last month: Egypt decided to revoke the citizenship of any Egyptians married to Israelis. In Amsterdam, anti-Semitism has become so commonplace that Dutch police are now using "decoy Jews" in an effort to to cut the number of verbal and physical attacks on Jews, amid fears that anti-Semitic "hate crime" is on the rise. And in Germany, a Jewish dance group was attacked with stones by a group of children and teenagers during a performance at a street festival in Hannover. The teenagers also used a megaphone to shout anti-Semitic slurs. European Jewish Congress President Moshe Kantor last week gave a bleak evaluation of European Jewry. "Jews are afraid to walk the streets in Europe with Jewish symbols," Kantor said. "Synagogues, Jewish schools and kindergartens require barbed-wire fences and security, and Jewish men, women and children are beaten up in broad daylight." Jews worldwide are again under attack. The Holocaust and 6 million slaughtered Jews have been forgotten. It now appears that history is on the way to repeating itself, aided and abetted by the world press. During the much publicized clash between supposed peace activists and Israeli soldiers last month, Israel was roundly condemned when forced to board a ship that was trying to break Israel's blockade of Gaza under the guise of delivering "humanitarian aid" to Palestinians. Reuters was caught, once again, photo shopping a knife out of the hand of a supposed "peace activist" in a blatant attempt to portray Israel as the aggressor. The London Telegraph was also caught using a two-year-old photo in their quest to portray Palestinians as victims. A photo that was purposefully misleading, as is shown here. When Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, Hamas launched 6,500 unprovoked rocket strikes on towns and schoolyards in Israel.

The Potty Parity Act is proceeding apace. The Obama administration's response to the upsurge in violence in Afghanistan? They launched an investigation into allegations that a number of American soldiers were responsible for the "unlawful deaths" of at least three Afghan civilians. This, despite the recent unanimous acquittal of three heroic Navy SEALS who were swiftly exonerated by a jury after being accused of, gasp, slapping one of the most dangerous terrorist detainees in the world. Who, by the way, the SEALS heroically captured. Thank-you, Navy SEALS. No update yet on the terrorist's hurt lip. As our young men are fighting and dying in Afghanistan, our current elected officials remain hard at work. Their most recent work product includes a proposal for a new medal to reward our troops for "courageous restraint." You got that? A medal for not killing the enemy. Of course most of these medals would, of necessity, be awarded posthumously. Maybe by the time the first new medal is awarded, the "enemy" will actually be defined. The only concrete message so far from Washington, via Attorney General Eric Holder, is that the enemy is NOT radical Islamic terrorists. Whew!

To be absolutely fair, Obama did appoint a commission to study how to deal with the BP catastrophe. Just because Obama is the largest recipient of BP campaign cash for the last twenty years doesn't mean he's in their pocket. No word yet on when or if the commission will release its expert findings. Meanwhile, Obama blithely continued to side with foreign countries against the U.S., as he bravely spoke truth to power, teaming up with President Calderone to condemn the newly passed immigration law in Arizona.

My Liberal Friend

My liberal friend Pam and I are a perfect example of the class warfare currently being waged in America between the 'haves' and the 'have nots.' Also known as 'the war against the rich,' or, in a nutshell, socialism. Though Pam and I are lifelong friends, we couldn't be more different. Pam is the quintessential liberal, quick to espouse views that show America in a bad light. Sarah Palin is evil, Bush is bad and anyone (like myself) that doesn't base their decisions on feelings is, well, just plain uncompassionate. End of story. I, on the other hand, am a traditional, conservative Christian. Though conservatives have yet to be included under the leftist's much vaunted 'tolerance' and 'multicultural' umbrellas, Pam has decided that she will tolerate her renegade friend, as long as that friend doesn't publicly air any conservative views. Which is becoming a problem for our friendship. Pam is the product of government schools and a culture that ignores merit in favor of any perceived underdog or victim. She is the proud owner of a Masters Degree, which, according to her, validates all of her leftist views - regardless of any facts to the contrary. And its not her fault that, at the ripe age of 57, she has yet to pay off the student loans that paid for her education. Both Pam and I are the end result of the decisions we have made over the course of our lives. Pam's choices have resulted in her absolute refusal to participate in capitalism, or our free market system. Instead, she survives on a government check, feeling it is her due. And like most who receive something for nothing, she hates the one whose largesse she has chosen to accept. Kinda like all those countries who get aid from America and hate us for it. Hey, no one likes to be acknowledged as being subservient. Fortunately for Pam, her leftists illusions allow her to maintain the moral high ground. Unlike her capitalist friend, who has never asked for or received dime one from the government. I am considered one of the evil 'rich.' Pam graciously ignores this fact, at least until she needs another loan. Pam maintains the romantic illusion of being a struggling, misunderstood artist. She exists on a higher plane than Joe Six pack and Susy Homemaker. She is 'sensitive' and totally in tune with Mother Earth, victims of capitalism, and all creature great and small. That my tax dollars allow her this freedom is one of those inconvenient facts that Pam has learned to compartmentalize. Meaning she has chosen to ignore (or demonize) any facts that don't align with her vision of herself. Like most leftists, Pam believes that life is a zero sum game. If someone has a big slice of the pie, that automatically means that some poor unfortunate has to do with a smaller slice. And all rich people are only rich because they made their money off the backs of those less fortunate. This mind set, while comforting, is not conducive to material success. Which is OK with Pam, as she has spent her whole life eschewing the almighty dollar, choosing instead to allow others, like her 'rich' friend and financially stable family members the favor of periodically bailing her out financially. Her only concession to reality. Ever since Obama was elected president, my friendship with Pam has become strained. Though politics was never a part of our friendship in the past, it has now become a factor. Pam apparently feels that Obama's socialist agenda is the best thing that ever happened to the Oppressive State of America. And since she knows that everyone feels this way, she has no qualms parroting the Dem's sound bite of the day as fact. Since I know Obama didn't really cut taxes by $800 billion, it rankles somewhat that Pam believes it. Pam also believes that the government take over of the private sector is ..http://rightbias .com/news/040610or gy.aspx  (Apr 20, 2010 | post #1)

My Destructive Generation

My generation could well be the first generation in American history to leave our country worse off than we found it. I am a member of the baby boomer generation. The generation that came of age in the late sixties during the turbulent times of Woodstock, Watergate and Vietnam. The generation that is now holding the reins of power in most American institutions, from politics to media, to education and culture. The generation that will likely be responsible for squandering America's hard won freedoms and changing America into a third world country, all in the name of 'equality' and 'social justice.' A defining hallmark of baby boomers on the left is hubris and an absolute refusal to learn or acknowledge the lessons of history. They know best. Moral relativism is the cornerstone of most baby boomers. Their theories rest on subjective, personal values instead of concrete scientific definitions. And they acknowledge no other authority or moral code larger than one's choice. They have adopted the Rousseauian strategy of emphasis on passion instead of reason.* And despite the utter failure of the social policies they have instituted, they persist in believing that they can define their own reality. Author Shelby Steele, in his book White Guilt, comes closest to explaining how and why the baby boomer generation believes as it does. Steele makes the excellent point that every generation, when it comes of age, seeks to challenge authority and tradition. Like most adolescent rebels, they are quickly humbled because they overestimate their own truth and underestimate the truth of their elders. They learn a valuable life lesson when they are smacked down by their elders and reality. My generation never learned this lesson. As Steele writes, "The sixties generation of youth is very likely the first generation in American history to have won its adolescent rebellion against its elders." The reason for this: As baby boomers came of age, America had just taken the giant step of acknowledging and apologizing for its history of slavery and racism. At that moment in time, America had lost its moral authority, hence the progressive assaults on campuses resulted in defeating the traditional hierarchy. Heady stuff. With this victory, my fellow boomers adopted the notion that they were invincible. "Their rite of passage to maturity was cut short and they were falsely inflated instead of humbled. Uninitiated, they devalue history rather than find direction in it, and feel entitled to break sharply and recklessly with the past."

The life of a leftist

After much consideration, I have decided to become a leftist. Here's why: As a leftist, I have a right to a living wage. I was born with this right and under the system of social justice Obama and friends are implementing, rich fat cats are under an obligation to pay for my rights. As a leftist, I also have a right to free health care, a roof over my head, and food on my table. And as long as I keep voting for Democrats, this right will be protected and, hopefully expanded. As a solid member of the left, I have the right to abort my baby, and even have other people pay for it. I also have the right to free (taxpayer funded) birth control and my boyfriend has the right to obtain sexual enhancement aids for free. Not that he needs them, but, hey, they're free. As a leftist, I have the right to indulge in sluttish behavior with whomever I want. Not only that, I can describe myself as 'empowered' instead of merely being a tramp. Being a good leftist, I have the right not to be insulted.
