Americans Step Up

Posted by AB on January 18, 2010

It has been nearly a week since the nation of Haiti was hit by one of the most destructive natural disasters of recent times.  The earthquake that killed thousands, injured thousands more, and left even more homeless is still fresh in the minds of people around the globe.  To anyone with a heart, there is pain to see so many human beings suffer, and the world has stepped up to help, led again by the United States.  Millions of dollars have been donated by the private citizens of the U.S., and our government has pledged $100 dollars for rescue and recovery.  Beyond that, thousands of U.S. Military members have been deployed, along with ships and planes carrying water and medical supplies.  The United States is proving, once again, why the rest of the world looks up to us.

One of the most encouraging signs is the bipartisanship.  Unless you are Pat Robertson, Rush Limbaugh, or Rep. Steve King (R-IA) you have recognized the desperate need of the Haitian people and our unique position, as Americans, to help.  Now is not a time for petty political partisanship, and that is exemplified by the coalition of former Presidents, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, have teamed-up to head the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund.  In recent times, we have been a country divided but, in hards times, we come together.  That makes me proud.

Whew! No Brainwashing. We Dodged A Bullet!

Posted by AB on September 8, 2009

The President of the United States gave a speech to the nation’s school-children and, thankfully, he refrained from the planned brainwashing and socialist indoctrination to send a message of self-responsibilty, patriotism, and perseverance.  Whew, we dodged a bullet.  I was sure that he would open his speech with the recitation of the “Pledge to Obama.”  Then he would pull his pocket-watch from his coat, wave it front of all of the children until hypnotised, and force the youngsters to become his loyal civilian military force.  That’s right, the Obama Youth.

Wait a minute…I’m not Glenn Beck, or Michelle Malkin, or Sean Hannity, or Rush Limbaugh.  Hell, I don’t even work a Fox News.  So, with my sanity in tact, along with the ability to process information, I actually watched the speech.  I could have read a transcript of the speech last night.  But again, I have my sanity and the ability to process information.  Those who would try to scare you to death are counting upon people who cannot process information, or people who have actually lost their sanity.

Sorry to break it to you crazies, but the speech was excellent.  Maybe if Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, or Bill Clinton had given such an inspirational speech to my classroom, I might have done even better in school.  The speech contained nothing about politics, nothing about socialism, nothing about the economy, nothing about health care, and nothing about the joys of supporting terrorists.  I was inspired to be a better person, and I have been out of school for a while, now.  

For those who kept their children away from school out of fear of having their children come home brainwashed by the evil, black socialist, here is the speech.  You should watch it.  Maybe you will gain the confidence to think for yourself.
