Trayvon and George

My take on the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Shut the Hell up. I don't care who was right or wrong any more. It is done. A young person is dead, whether angel or thug, his family lost their child, regardless of what you or I may think of them and their response. A man has taken the life of a child and will have that on his conscience, right or wrong, for the rest of his life. His life as he knew it is over. So are the lives of his family. The Race Hustlers and Poverty Pimps are further dividing this country by ripping open old wounds and throwing gasoline on smoldering embers. 

I understand tomorrow is some kind of national rally. Stay home, no matter what side you are on. Spend time with your children and loved ones. See friends and enjoy them. It will do far more for this country.

A Letter to the Editor

Vince Schmuki wrote this.  We'll see if anyone (other than me) publishes it.  Good stuff.

Letter to the editor for publishing:

The outcome of the George Zimmerman case has many people locally and nationally in an uproar. The outrage is real and that alone should cause many questions to be asked. Racial hatred and injustice has been with us always but it does appear to have reached a fevered pitch.
Locally, outrage was displayed over a white woman street musician, Cassandra Struve, who received a beat down at the hands of two black women outside of the main gate of Summerfest recently for having the audacity to play "black" music. Oops, I forgot, there was barely a mention of the incident outside of a Fox channel 6 news report. Nothing to see here folks, just move along now.
Then there were the 72 shootings in Chicago over the 4th of July weekend. Where was the outrage and the parade of reports decrying dozens of lives snuffed out? Just another busy weekend of largely black on black murders in the windy city -- apparently hardly newsworthy or worth discussion based on the media’s lack of outrage.
So while there is much to be outraged about, the general consensus is that unless an ulterior political agenda can be served, the everyday violence passes by with nary a peep or a cavalcade through the streets as is so popular. Reverend Al has offered to live in Chi-town for a while but rare is the soul who stands up to offer real pathways to peace. Quite frankly, even Sharpton’s gesture appears to be more press posturing because unless he plans to put roots down in the midst of the trouble, it is likely that little will have changed once his photo op is over and he has moved on.
The media, in large part, are the enablers of this show of shadows. Picking and choosing who the performers will be in their scripted play for the week. Turning and twisting public opinion to meet their template.
ENOUGH OF THIS SHOW! Let’s have some real community leaders stand up to racial violence of ALL kinds. Let’s turn to the graves of true leaders of the past who did not seek out power through the color of one’s skin but sought and encouraged all members of society to truly rise above the level of one’s skin covering and to treat one another by the character that lies buried beneath. Let’s turn to those who understood, that to seek the truth, the show must not go on. To those who truly understood, “To the living we owe respect, but to the dead we owe only the truth”!

The Real Problems Are Not George Zimmerman

This is an extraordinary piece posted on Facebook by Pam Stevens.  The state-run media are afraid to talk about this stuff and the government derives its power from it.

Well I knew I would get questions from some on my friends list asking me why, why, why are you coming down on Democrats in the black community and black people. They ask me if I am really black. I am American STOP labeling me. We are the only race of people that are EXPECTED to act a certain way because of our skin color, no matter how we were raised or what our values are. THAT IS RACIST! DUH! No one is going to take away my freedom to think for myself. I was raised to see through people like Sharpton and Jackson and yes our President to. If they cared about black people they would be in these communities everyday telling these criminals to get out. If they cared about black people they would be supporting school choice because of the dismal graduation rate in the black communities. If they cared about blacks they would be telling Planned Parenthood to get OUT of the black communities and to stop killing our black babies. If they cared about blacks they would be telling the government to do something about the black unemployment rate instead of just handing out entitlements to keep blacks on the plantations. Don’t you see this is slavery? Democrats CONTROL the black communities and LOOK at the results. I love ALL of my friends and family, but I will not remain in bondage for you or anyone else. I left the plantation and more than anything I wish you would to. Think about our morals and how we were raised, then tell me how you could support a party that believes we are “different” than every other American out there. How could you support a party that believes we are not capable of making a school choice for our children and they know how to raise our babies better than we do? How can you support a party that believes in tearing down the sanctity of the American family? How can you support a party that thinks so little of us that they believe we are not capable of earning living without living off of the government? How can you support a party that supports an organization that was started to KILL ALL black babies, and that kills more blacks in one year than the KKK has done since the 40s? How can you support a party that sees what is going on in the black communities that they control with the crime and killings, and they do NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!! They are happy to see the destruction of the black family in the black communities and you ask me WHY? Well I ask you, How?

The following statement is from one of my FB friends Twinn, and I think he sums it up very well. 

BEFORE YOU JUMP DOWN A BLACK REPUBLICANS THROAT, question your Democrat party, asked them how come black males deaths gets no respect in the justice system?.......ask your Democrat Mayor, how come you're not doing anything to stop the tide of violence in our Black community?......... Ask Jesse or Sharpton, where were you when a 2, 3, 4 or 5 year old black child was gunned down.......ask the public schools, how come our black children aren't learning anything?.......have any of you BLACK DEMOCRATS on this site checked the latest black body count piling up this year?...........MY GUESS PROBABLY NOT! OUR VALUE IS DROPPING IN AMERICA AND GUESS WHY?........95% OF US GIVES OUR VOTE AWAY TO THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, WITHOUT QUESTION, WITH A TRACK RECORD LIKE THAT. THE DEMOCRATS REALIZE NO MATTER WHAT WE DO, or SAY TO YOU DOESN'T MATTER, BECAUSE YOU WILL VOTE WITHOUT QUESTION. IN THE MEAN TIME BACK IN BLACK LAND the bodies are still piling up. RUN THAT BY ME AGAIN WHY YOU'RE JUMPING DOWN A BLACK REPUBLICAN'S THROAT!

Why Do We Remain?

The United States has been engaged in combat in Afghanistan since 2001 and Iraq since 2003.  I supported both of those missions and still believe they were the right thing to do.  But here we are ten-plus years later.  The Afghans remain in the stone age (we couldn't bomb them to that age, they were already there), Saddam and his regime are gone from Iraq, yet we still have troops in both places.

With the unrest in Syria and now Egypt, I suppose I can understand the reason for troops in Iraq.  But to what end in Afghanistan?  There is no clear national interest.  The Taliban remain in-country, but are far weaker and will be unable to mount a wave of terror against the US.

I will not go for the emotionalism of the human cost - you can read about that in the sock-puppet media.  It's an all-volunteer force.

There is no national interest in the Middle East any more.  I believe we have a moral obligation to Israel, but that's just me.  Otherwise, "declare victory an bring them home".

July 4, 2013 - Dependence Day?

I would normally write some sort of Patriotic posting today.  But I can't bring myself to do so.  We live in a de facto police state, tens of millions to hundreds of millions rely on some sort of direct payment from government to meet their daily needs.  This is no longer the "land of the free and home of the brave".  It is the land of the dole and the home of the dependent.

Abortion and Rape

The argument the Left loves to use for abortion is, "what about rape and incest?"  Counter it with, "where is the line?"  If moments before birth is OK, then what about during and after the birthing process?  What about in the brithing process?  Immediately following?  Could make for an interesting conversation..

Airports and the Police State

The Beer:  for those of you who do not know, I have relocated to Houston, TX.  My brewing gear is packed away.  I am jonesin' to brew up a batch.

The Bicycle:  there are better places to ride than Metro-Houston, but they are working on consolidating the system of park trails to allow a person to cover virtually the entire area.

The VRWC:  Are not airports a microcosm of the Big Government Police State we now live in?  I arrived at Houston Hobby for a return trip to Wisconsin today at 0200 for an 0515 flight.  I realize we are told to be at the airport at least 2 hours early and I was more than 3, but that is not the issue.  I was prepared to wait at the airport as being awake and waiting in my hotel room wasn't something that interested me.  But I was not prepared to be one of about 4 people in the entire airport.  No security that I could see (maybe they were that good), no TSA, no ticket agents.  Just me, a nice young lady and a couple of janitorial staff.  It would have been quite easy to walk past the checkpoint and into the concourse if I were a nefarious-type.

At about 0300, TSA started to show up, but they were not going to open the checkpoint until 0415.  I guess I am probably OK with that because I made it to my flight with no problem.  But some ended up very close because behind me, the line got quite long and there was only one lane moving through the checkpoint.

But here is what just flat pissed me off.  I went through the x-ray (intrusive enough), then was told to "assume the position while some self-important TSA agent right around my age decided he needed to cop a feel.  What was he going to find on my shoulders?  But he was very officious and important about it and was "kind enough" to let me pass through.  As I am standing there gathering up my crap and putting on my sandals, I realized how much I resent living in a police state after spending 6 years of my life in service of that same state (pre-police).

Short of being taken away in the middle of the night, I don't know how many more Liberties we can give up.  We have been given "false Liberties" like a "right" to abortion, "whistleblower protections", "clean air and water" by government, but we have given up our God-ordained Constitutional Liberties.  We can "marry" whomever or whatever we choose, but can't use the dreaded "n-word".  We are assumed to be guilty of terrorism as we pass through an airport checkpoint, we must support abortion whether our conscience agrees or not.

Many have claimed over the last few decades that we were living in a police state.  It is now true.
