Bill of NON-Rights

My husband passed this along to me this morning.  I thought it was good enough to share.  I don’t expect everyone to readily agree with the content, but it certainly gives all of us something to think about.  

 We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional, and other liberal bed-wetters. We hold these truths to be self-evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights.,,,

ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.,,,

ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone — not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc.; but the world is full of idiots, and probably always will be.,,,

ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.,,,

ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes. (This one is my pet peeve…get an education and go to work…. don’t expect everyone else to take care of you!),,,

ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we’re just not interested in public health care.,,,

ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don’t be surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair, sniff the gas chamber, swing from the gallows, or take it in the vein!!,,,

ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don’t be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won’t have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.,,,

ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful. (AMEN!),,,

ARTICLE IX: You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an over abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.,,,

ARTICLE X: This is an English speaking country. We don’t care where you are from, English is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever you came from! (Lastly….),,,

ARTICLE XI: You do not have the right to change our country’s history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, and if you are uncomfortable with it, TOUGH!

If you agree, share this with a friend. No, you don’t have to, and nothing tragic will befall you if you don’t. I just think it’s about time common sense is allowed to flourish. Sensible people of the United States speak out because if you do not, who will ???

O My Goodness…

I hope this turns out to be a rumor or someone’s idea of a very poor joke, but….(Thank you, Lennie.  I hadn’t made my rounds this weekend to find the Fox news article.  I’m personally thankful the Chinese account was inaccurate…but still am not comfortable with the flying of their flag anywhere on our sovereign ground. I don’t consider the Chinese government our ally and can’t justify flying their flag in our nation’s capitol city.  Thank you for the link.) The White House Debunks Reports It Will Fly China’s Flag On South Lawn Notice the Chinese source is sticking to their original story.  They will likely have a hay day with this event.

One of the last things I saw before going to bed last night was this headline from the China Daily…

China’s national flag to go up in White House on Sept 20

The national flag of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) will be hoisted at the South Lawn of the White House in Washington on September 20, media reported Sunday.

What is our president thinking?  Or…who is doing his thinking?

What has our nation become?

Better yet…what is our nation becoming?

Does anyone else have a major problem with the flying of the Chinese flag on OUR White House lawn?

Is this the “change” 51% of our nation anticipated as they voted in November?  O, how I hope not!

My brother gifted me a new flag…It’s not a PRC flag!!!  It’s the Gadsden flag, the Don’t Tread on Me rattlesnake symbol of American independence and freedom. As soon as I get a flag pole I will display it proudly.  In the meantime, it’s large enough to use as a shawl.  LOL.

This book is an amazing wealth of mind-boggling information impeccably backed up by facts and sources.  It reveals just exactly who is behind the scene pulling the puppet strings we call government.  I’ve read it with hanging jaw and bulging eyes…I don’t consider myself naive, but never did I imagine the corruption runs so deep.  I can’t recommend this book more highly…but it’s not for the faint of heart or those prone to burying their heads in the sand like an ostrich.  I challenge any uninformed “liberal” to read Culture Of Corruption for an eye-opening reality check.  You might be surprised who you blindly support.

Michelle Malkin’s writing style is superb and makes for an excellent read…her biting wit, sharp as a two-edged sword, supplies comic relief in what would otherwise be too much reality to sanely process.  Michelle’s analysis of the Obama/Chicago political machine leaves no more to the imagination than do sun worshipers on a nudist beach.  Culture of Corruption truly is a must-read bestseller.

Until next time…

Bush Mocked As He Arrives on Inauguration Dais
@ 11:52 am by Hill Staff

The crowd packed on the west side of the Capitol grounds serenaded President Bush in mocking fashion when he took to the inaugural stage alongside Vice President Dick Cheney.

“Nah nah nah nah, hey hey, good-bye,” a section of the crowd chanted.

How ironic this crowd was situated on the left side of the Capitol grounds. I guess they couldn’t resist showing their true colors on this history making day. The Bush’s showed great grace and dignity throughout the day’s events. Too bad the same can’t be said for some of the crowd.

Even though I did not vote for Mr. Obama for president, I vow to show him the respect the office he has been elected to fill is due. Though many Americans did not afford President Bush the same courtesy, I believe showing a little class in our treatment of our President won’t hurt any of us regardless to how we feel about him personally. That would surely be a step toward positive change during this administration.

“Ouch”…

said the white woman.  This seems a wee bit all-inclusive, as if no white embraces what is right…or is it just me?

Benediction at Obama ‘s inauguration, Rev. Joseph Lowery: ‘Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around… when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen. Say Amen’…

Dreams Can Be Nightmares

Last night along with millions of Americans I watched the presidential debate between Senators John McCain and Barak Obama.   Straightway after the conclusion of the very eventless debate I went to bed.  Before turning out the light and drifting off to slumberland, I read for a while, because the debate left me with the disturbing feeling that neither of the debate participants are leveling with us…neither is telling the truth…neither man can be trusted with the future of our United States.  I hoped reading a portion of the book I’ve been plodding through for the past couple months would change the thoughts dancing around in my head.  Fresh thoughts would surely introduce sweeter sleep.  I couldn’t have been more wrong.

My sleep was interrupted with dreams more disturbing and life-like than evoked by the flat-line debate I watched before going to bed.  Repeatedly I woke up with visions of Obama’s smirking face filling my mind.  William Ayers was his companion.  Had I not been too tired to drag myself from my bed, I would have gotten up to avoid further unwelcome invasion of my psychic.  I woke up feeling more disturbed than I felt before going to sleep.

I’m not one to entertain unreasonable fear, but the current political and economic scene in the United States and the world is critical enough to make even the most stoic individual quake.   The United States as we know it is on the verge of extinction.  A “one world economic system” is one more nap away,  yet most of the people I encounter remain in their bubble of oblivion and evasion of reality…what they do not acknowledge cannot be true.

I don’t profess to see the future, but I refuse to ignore the present.  I’m not sure who John McCain is.  The Maverick I remember used his wit and ingenuity to outfox his opposition.  McCain has been disturbingly passive and has neglected to call his opponent on his shady associations throughout his career.  Obama scares the stink out of me.  His associates are not honorable people, and I believe “birds of a feather flock together”.  He comes out of one of the most corrupt political machines in the country.

We are in deep trouble.  Crooks are in the drivers seat, and they are stealing our country.  It’s time to wake up, because dreams can be nightmares, and nightmares can come true.

Until next time…

Don’t mind me…I had to get this off my chest, and don’t expect you to agree with me.  Afterall…last night’s nightmare was mine…not yours.  Or is it?

Until recently the 2008 political race for president of the United States has been a source of little more than dismay and irritation for me.  As the old-timers in these parts say “I didn’t have a dog in this hunt”.  Then enters Sarah Palin. 

I’ve got to say it.  In spite of the fact I will never understand why a woman would want to be involved in something as sticky and stinking as politics, I like Sarah.  She is a breath of fresh air.  She is obviously a woman who enjoys being a woman and has absolutely no envy of the physical characteristics of her male political counterparts. 

To feminists (of which I am not one), I would say your candidate has arrived on the scene.  She is all-woman, a high achiever, and does not have to imitate a man to show her strength.  Sarah speaks her mind with grace, class, composure, and candor…and with each word, maintains femininity.  

Sarah is a feminist in that she believes a woman can do whatever she sets her mind to and works toward and should not be limited to any stereotypical design for her life.  Most importantly, she strikes down the old-fashioned, outdated femi-Nazi image of feminism.  She proves a woman can be strong without compromising the feminine qualities and blessings associated with being a woman.  She’s both gentle and compassionate.  She proves a woman can be in what is generally viewed as a “man’s world” without being one, acting like one, looking like one, or hating them.

I’m impressed with Sarah Palin.  She gives me hope in this election.  It’s still not perfect, and thank goodness Mrs. Palin has not tried to present herself as perfect.  She does not try to gloss over any of the trials and tribulations she and her very real family have encountered.  She paints no make believe picture of what this country will become if we vote the McCain/Palin ticket into office, but she does make me believe there is finally a new kid in town who will represent an ordinary woman like me and have my best interest in mind.

I had to say it…and I feel better now that I have.  Whether you initially or eventually agree with me or not,  I hope I’ve given each of you something to think about.  So much is at stake.

Until next time…

If you would reap praise, you must sow the seeds — Gentle words and useful deeds.
