 Trying to Talk Sense on Facebook

If you’re a Facebook user, I’m sure you go through the same thing I did recently.  Some MSNBC viewer starts making absolutely stupid pro Obama posts.  Usually, these types of posts are so filled with mistakes it would be impossible to address each one of them.  You would have to start at 1st grade to try to get one of these persons prepared to even digest the a of the truth they so badly need to know .

Of course, the responses I get back in return for anything I say to liberals are so vile, I choose not to give them an additional forum, but I’m sure you’ve heard the all.  The following is my part of an argument I just won on Facebook. I have omitted my adversary’s comments but I’m sure you can easily fill in the blanks because as you know, MSNBC’s audience is not exactly full of MENSA candidates.

The first reponse is to an edited Youtube clip supposedly proving The Tea Party had been planning to shut down the government for a long time

  • “I’m familiar with most of those speeches and statements in their entirety. They were all made in regards to the last debt ceiling debate. The dems got their way because many of the Republicans became weak kneed and folded and let the debt ceiling be raised against their better judgment. They did this because they know the democrat controlled media will always swing public sentiment against Republicans.
  • What these guys are saying is, ‘we have to do what’s right for the country and excessively overspending is not it.’ So, they are telling their supporters, if our back is against the wall, we simply cannot go on giving dems rights to unrequited overspending. If faced with the choice of sinking our country into a depression or letting the dems shut down the government, ‘shut it down.’ We’ll take a hit in the poles, but it will be doing what’s right.
  • I totally agree with this sentiment. We haven’t even reached this debt ceiling debate yet. The current shutdown is caused by the fact the Obama administration refuses to enforce Obamacare on every one. Those that donate to him and he, himself, are exempt. This is in complete contrast to the spirit of The Constitution.”

Of course, in his reply he needed to tell me Obamacare was the law of the land!!!!!!!

  • “Of course, there was a time slavery was the law of the land. Thankfully, this gave birth to the Republican party which, with the help of the first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln, changed this abomination of a supreme court tested law on the basis it was unconstitutional. This was done, of course, with the democrat party fighting in favor of slavery every step of the way. The Supreme Court was no help either. The democrat party is also the party of the kkk and tried to stop The Equal Rights Amendment, as well. Today, democrats are still separating people by race, gender and political preference casting themselves, of course, as the superior.”

At this point he needed to tell me the parties had changed.  The implication being, of course, “Republicans hate black people.”

  • “Neither party has changed substantially, Thomas.  Democrats have always been smart, as well as cunning.   However, since the time of the ignominious presidency of Andrew Jackson, the democrat’s defense of slavery, their Tammany Hall politics, their organized crime affiliations, their stealing of elections, their money laundering techniques, their buying of votes with tax payer money, their kkk and Dixie-crat segregationist movement, the democrat’s history has become so loathsome it has necessitated their building of a powerful attack machine that destroys anything in its path.
  • In contrast, The Tea Party, which to some extent, resides in the Republican Party is trying to reinstate Constitutional restraints on the government.  Constitutional restraint would absolutely demolish the democrat party as it exists today.  Therefore, we, The Tea Party, are the number one enemy on the list of those the democrat party needs to destroy.  Unfortunately, you are listening to the propaganda this attack machine is putting forth when instead; you should be reading The Constitution, The Declaration of Independence and The Federalist Papers.”

By this time he was pretty hot under the collar.  He couldn’t understand how Constructional restraint could demolish the democrat party.  He also was throwing some MSNBC stuff about redistricting at me.

  • “Constitutional Restraint – Each member of Congress, both the lower house and the Senate is Constitutionally obligated to represent all of his/her constituents.  According to the Constitution they must do what is best for the common good of their district.  Pitting some of their constituents against others is just the opposite of what they were elected to do.
  • However, divide and conquer has long been a stalwart strategy of democrats.  They pit man against woman, black against white, rich against poor, old against young, non-religious against religious and the pop culture centric against the Tea Party member.  Their strategy is to gain support of groups with each group building a power of its own.  The power these groups accumulate comes, in large part, from the democrat party itself.
  • The democrat party will continue to reward these groups, financially, with tax payer money, and by making them newsworthy.  So, these groups become obligated to support democrats with the money, the tax payer money, the democrat party has rewarded them with.
  • There was a time, it was seen as not only unseemly but positively corrupt, for a representative or a president to demean a segment of the population of the United States.  Democrats thieve on this and they can only get away with it because so many of us have no understanding of The Constitution and how it has been designed to be the protector of each individual’s rights.  I believe it would be wonderful if every citizen would read James Madison’s Federalist Paper 10, which explains the dangers of factions.
  • You really don’t want me to get into redistricting.  It is also known as Gerrymandering and is an art form perfected by the democrat party. ”

Now he was really blowing his stack as he put forth the now famous Youtube video of Rand Paul and Mitch McConnell on open mic talking about Obama’s refusal to negotiate.  (How damning to The Tea Party!)

  • “Yeah, I think he’s right! They didn’t start it but if they stay the course I believe they will win over the admiration of many opened minded people. I really can’t believe there is anything damning about what they were saying and, from my recollection of things, it is an accurate account; Republicans were willing to negotiate and they, meaning Obamacrats, are not. I think you’re starting to see the light, Thomas. I’m very happy about this.”

His next response was pretty belligerent so I decided to end it like this…

  • “By the way, Thom, what you’re doing here is wonderful.  Any admirer of The Constitution of the United States absolutely loves it when anybody starts to seek the truth and go out on his/her own and form a personal opinion.  Your unique questions show me you’re a very intelligent young man and I have absolutely no doubt you will get to the bottom of it all.
  • Freedom of Speech is a marvelous benefit The Constitution guarantees us here in the U.S.   It is great FB gives an opportunity to use it.  I know you understand I consider you a good friend and I whole heartedly wish you the best.  My only advice to you, as an older man, is you keep on your discovery mission.  Try to get a good cross-section of views.  Don’t let me or anybody else plant thoughts in your head, but instead, freely gather information.  Most importantly, get a good understanding of what The Constitution means to freedom, what freedom actually means and what it would be like to live without it.
  • Of course.  It’s because we want what’s best for everyone emotions run high.  This is to be expected, unless you were dealing with a plant or a piece of wood or something like that. I seem to be coming from the minority point of view in many quarters.  I feel it’s important for me state my case even when I know what I’m saying is probably not going to make me popular.  Still, I state my case without reservations, exactly as you do.  Keep up the good work.  You’re putting a lot of thought into government affairs.  This exactly what you and I are supposed to do.  In America, the government belongs to the ‘we the people.’”

The Poem Don’t Quit

I know it’s a long uphill climb we have Tea Partiers.  So, it is most important we all remember the famous poem, Don’t Quit.  What!?!  You don’t remember the poem “Don’t Quit?” Well if this is the case, read below:

Dont Tread on Me 300x175 The Poem Dont Quit

Our Forefathers overcame insurmountable odds!

 (My father knew this poem by heart.)

Don’t Quit

Don’t Quit no matter what!
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
 When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
 When funds are low and the debts are high,
 And you want to smile but you have to sigh,
 When care is pressing you down a bit,
 Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
 As every one of us sometimes learns,
 And many a failure turns about,
 When he might have won if he’d stuck it out.
 Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than
 It seems to a faint and faltering man;
 Often the struggler has given up
 When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
 And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
 How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out -
 The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
 And you never can tell how close you are -
 It may be near when it seems afar;
 So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit -
It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.
- by Author Unknown
Keep up the good fight .  Take baby steps toward the ultimate goal of overcoming government despotism.  Little by little, a lot can be achieved!  Remember this great country was built by ordinary people who strongly believed freedom for their posterity was a goal they would never quit trying for! Don’t quit.

He’d Look Like Travon – or – Deciding Cases by Presidential Decree

When Obama says, “If I had a son, he’d look like Travon.” Or, “This could’ve been me 35 years ago; what exactly does he base his claim upon?  I don’t think he’s talking about height, weight or any particular mannerism he and Travon Martin shared because, let’s face it, BHO really didn’t know very much about the kid.  The one thing he did know is the two shared the same, or a similar flesh tone.  When put into this perspective; how could “if I had a son he’d look a lot like Travon” be anything other than a blatantly racist comment.

Furthermore, Obama’s statement implies Travon must have been a model citizen on the day he was shot simply because Barrak Obama was once a black kid.  Therefore, due to BHO’s decree, evidence to the contrary that would later come out in court was in material.

There were things more troubling than his statement about the kinship he felt toward Travon the President would make this day.  It was most troubling he promised all local, State and Federal governments would look into this case.  His assumption was, I guess, that if he had not said this, a fair trial could not possibly occur.  This made it appear as if he has no faith in America’s judicial system.   In other words, his speech blatantly resembled remarks you would expect to come from a community organizer.  Not very much of it resembled a speech you would expect from a person who presides over all Americans.

In the real world, even if the jurors in the Zimmerman trial got it all wrong, it doesn’t mean anybody is capable of making a judgment on a person, like Zimmerman, for instance,  based on the color of another person, like Travon Martin, for instance.  To make such judgments would be KKK-like, as well as illegal.

One might argue the President didn’t declare Travon’s innocence but instead simply wanted to comfort the deceased’s grieving loved ones. If this is true, it makes you ask yourself why he needs to align himself with a person to offer his condolences to the forlorn family.  Simply put, he doesn’t need to align himself with anyone and as President should never do so for fear of splitting Americans into factions.  Factions, of course, are the grievous enemy to Democracy George Washington and James Monroe warned us about. Furthermore, they are the life’s blood of the Liberal movement in America.

In conclusion, when “divide and conquer” is the goal,  picking sides in a controversial and high profile self defense trial wile at the same time questioning the integrity of the American Judicial System can go a long way toward reaching this goal. Then, if you lead your supporters to believe you are superior to the congressional body whose duty it is to oversee your administration, you will have certainly inflicted severe damage on the country who buys you 100 million dollar vacations and all the ammunition your fleet of armed guards could ever need.

In other words, it is a horrendous turn of events the has led us from, the heights of “Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths, and encourage the arts and commerce. Let both sides unite to heed in all corners of the earth the command of Isaiah — to ‘undo the heavy burdens…and let the oppressed go free.’” John F. Kennedy - to the depths of the presidency of Barak Hussein Obama!

Mississippi NAACP Leader Sent To Prison For 10 Counts Of Voter Fraud

Reprinted from The Daily Caller

By Matthew Vadum

votingbooth 300x200 Mississippi NAACP Leader Sent To Prison For 10 Counts Of Voter Fraud

All voting doesn’t take place in a voting booth. Room for mischief exists when voter ID is not required.

While NAACP President Benjamin Jealous lashed out at new state laws requiring photo ID for voting, an NAACP executive sits in prison, sentenced for carrying out a massive voter fraud scheme.

In a story ignored by the national media, in April a Tunica County, Miss., jury convicted NAACP official Lessadolla Sowers on 10 counts of fraudulently casting absentee ballots. Sowers is identified on an NAACP website as a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee.

Sowers received a five-year prison term for each of the 10 counts, but Circuit Court Judge Charles Webster permitted Sowers to serve those terms concurrently, according to the Tunica Times, the only media outlet to cover the sentencing.

“This crime cuts against the fabric of our free society,” Judge Webster said.

Sowers was found guilty of voting in the names of Carrie Collins, Walter Howard, Sheena Shelton, Alberta Pickett, Draper Cotton and Eddie Davis. She was also convicted of voting in the names of four dead persons: James L. Young, Dora Price, Dorothy Harris, and David Ross.

In the trial, forensic scientist Bo Scales testified that Sowers’s DNA was found on the inner seals of five envelopes containing absentee ballots.

This wasn’t Sowers’s first run-in with the law. Sowers previously had her probation revoked for disturbing the peace at a junior high school library, the Commercial Appeal of Memphis reported in 1990. During a hearing at that time, Sowers played the race card. She claimed to be the victim of “an attempt by powerful whites to silence” her, the newspaper reported. It didn’t work. She was ordered back to prison to complete the remaining two years of a three-year sentence she received for check forgery.

The NAACP has had other problems with voter fraud. The NAACP National Voter Fund registered a dead man to vote in Lake County, Ohio, in 2004. That same year, out of 325 voter registration cards filed by the NAACP in Cleveland, 48 were flagged as fraudulent.

But the NAACP’s voter fraud record doesn’t approach that of ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. At least 54 individuals employed by or associated with ACORN have been convicted of voter fraud.

Voter fraud, sometimes called electoral fraud, is a blanket term used by lawyers that encompasses a host of election-related improprieties including fraudulent voting, voter registration fraud, perjury, forgery, counterfeiting, impersonation, intimidation, and identity fraud.

And ACORN, which filed for bankruptcy last November, was itself convicted of voter fraud in Nevada in April. Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 10 in Las Vegas. ACORN was also banished from Ohio in 2010 when it settled a state racketeering filed against it by the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law, a project of the Buckeye Institute. Under the settlement ACORN, which is now reorganizing its state chapters under different names, agreed never to return to the state.

Election experts say voter fraud is fairly common, but progressive activists typically insist that the crime is virtually nonexistent. Republicans, they say, routinely exaggerate claims of voter fraud in order to whip their political base into a frenzy and push for voter ID laws. Liberals say such laws are unfair, and claim that they discourage minorities and the poor from voting.

The NAACP’s Jealous said Monday at the group’s 102nd annual convention in Los Angeles that photo ID laws are part of an attempt to disenfranchise minorities through some “of the last existing legal pillars of Jim Crow.” Such laws stem from “the worst and most racist elements” in conservative Tea Party groups, he said.

Stephen Colbert, the liberal comedian who portrays an overbearing conservative Republican on his cable TV show “The Colbert Report,” broadcast a segment this week ridiculing Republicans for treating voter fraud as a serious problem.

Some Democrats, however, aren’t laughing. The office of District Attorney Brenda F. Mitchell, a registered Democrat who serves Mississippi’s 11th Circuit Court District, successfully prosecuted Sowers. Mitchell was appointed to the post by Republican Gov. Haley Barbour in January 2010 after the previous DA resigned. She’s now seeking the Democratic nomination for the office in a primary election scheduled for Aug. 2.

Mitchell doesn’t appear to be a conservative. She served as a legal consultant to the far-left, New York-based public interest law firm the Center for Constitutional Rights. That firm represented ACORN in an ultimately unsuccessful lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a federal law defunding the activist group. Mitchell didn’t return calls seeking comment for this article.

U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota Democrat, is also no conservative. But she won a conviction against Joshua Reed for voter registration fraud in 2004 when she was the Hennepin County, Minn. Prosecutor.

“It was very important for the public integrity of our electoral system that somebody, if they do something like this, gets charged, gets convicted and gets consequences,” Klobuchar said at the time.

Democrats, including Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto, Pittsburgh District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr., and Miami, Fla., State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle, have all vigorously prosecuted voter fraud cases.
