Reading the Blogs....

Like most of you, I spend a bit of time reading the blogs.  It's incredible how much information is available out there in the blogosphere and a lot of it is good, well thought out, level headed commentary and opinion.

I have posted a link over to the World Socialist Web Site just so folks can see how the hardcore socialists are perverting and twisting the "news".  Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and theirs is definitely from a different perspective.  You should check it out sometime, if you haven't already done so.  It's under the title "Know your Enemy" in the right sidebar of this blog,  They are even battier than your normal run of the mill Liberal.  Wow!

Anyway, back to the blogs.  I find most of them quite interesting.  I always read the comments to see what people are thinking.  Wow!  For the most part, I don't see the actual bloggers advocating violent overthrow of our current government.  What I do see is a lot of people trying to inform others of whats going on and giving their take on it.  Most of it is good. 

Some of the commentors are a little bit "out there" though, in my opinion.  All I can say is "be careful" and don't get crazy.  I suspect that "they" (the gummint) are anticipating a "small" uprising somewhere and they will be only too willing to crush it like a bug.  I'd go so far as to suggest that they are looking forward to it.

I think we are all very aware of the changes going on in our country and I will stick my neck out and say that I don't think many of us like what we see.  Our rights are being violated more and more everyday.

To anyone who thinks that the TSA's "enhanced" searches going on at airports across the country today aren't a violation of our Fourth amendment rights I say "your poopbox is full". 

Anyone with half a brain who has read the Second  Amendment to the Constitution knows that the government putting any conditions on the ability of any law abiding citizen anywhere to keep and bear arms is a violation of that amendment. 

Logic would tell us that a "natural born citizen" is one who is born of a natural born American citizen father and a natural born American citizen mother.  I refer to this specifically in reference to the qualifications to be President of the United States, but I fail to see how it can be any other way in any other situation.  Wouldn't the Founders have considered this to be such a basic premise that it required no further clarification?   I believe that this is what they intended when they said "natural born" citizen.  Why?  There is the question of one's loyalty if one parent is American and the other is of some other nationality.  The office of President of the United States is so significant, so important, that his or her loyalties must be beyond reproach.  I don't see how this is possible if you are a "dual citizen", even if born in the United States.  Again, I believe that this was so obvious to the Founders that they felt no need to define it any further. 

The list goes on and on.

I'm convinced that half the people want the government to take care of them and that the other half just want to be left alone to live their lives without undue interference from their government.

I think that there is a problem when 47% of the workers who are required to file a Federal form 1040 pay no taxes at all.  Many of these filers receive a refund that is greater than what they pay in.  

Our government is corrupt.  It is supposed to work for us.  It is supposed to do our bidding.  Does anyone feel that this is what's happening today?  Does anyone believe that the politicians that we elect to represent us in government are truly looking out for us?

Something is going to happen.  It has to.  We have only two choices.  We either force our government to do our bidding or we surrender to our government and do theirs.   The question is, will the change be violent or will it be peaceful?   How long will we wait before doing something about it?  I can assure you that if we do nothing, we won't like where we end up.

You must understand that all politicians are liars and that they will promise whatever they have to in order to get elected or reelected.   Some lie more than others.  It's simply a matter of degrees.

"The promise given was a necessity of the past: the word broken is a necessity of the present."~~Niccolo Machiavelli

That's it for now.

Stay safe.

I spend more time reading comments than actual articles. And some of the commenters (and a few blogger) are not too careful about what they say.

My background makes it unthinkable for me to divulge things that should be kept private for matters of safety and protection.

If you don't want someone to know something a) don't talk about it and b) never, ever put it in writing. Simple!

Heading off to check out the Socialist blog. It will probably keep me up at night...

Hi, I'm over from Adrienne's, and I'm glad I stopped in. You're so right about some of the comments that people make being extreme. I read a lot of comments, too, and it's always surprising to me when people supposedly "in our camp" (i.e. conservatives) start talking about violence. It's just not the way to go. Not only is the admin foaming at the mouth for us to become violent, but it's a surrender of our convictions and our belief in America. As long as we can still "vote the bums out," that's the only way to go. Heck, it's the American way. :)

Spot on. I'm glad I happened across your blog. I may check out the socialist site as well...flu
