What I Think

What I Think

Back in February of this year, shortly after Obama was sworn as President, he made an astute observation: “We are in the middle of an economic crisis!”

Damn, that was brilliant. What was his solution? He’s still looking.

However, here’s a suggestion Mr. Obama: ask all your rich Hollywood type friends and other dignitaries you have in your hip pocket to put up their art, precious metals and antique collections for public auction. You might significantly reduce the present deficit.

According to the New York Times, (02/25/09) an auction of the art work of Yves St. Laurent and his lover, Pierre Berge grossed .7 million from the sale of 18 works.

I wonder if any of the proceeds were donated to the poor, or those in need of immediate health care, or other less fortunate Americans

Get creative Mr. Obama………start by tapping into the pockets of your closest friends and leave those of us in the middle class alone.

That’s What I Think!

 Tea-Parties have become the rage of a generation of younger people encountering the oppressive tactics and intimidation from the zealous liberal thinking population of the United States. “So, What’s New?” In the mid-eighties the DADS Foundation was established here in Michigan to counter the issues of that era….the same issues prominent today.

Unlike the eighties parents, their off-spring are aware and fearful of the consequences of inaction. The primary reason is the tools we have today, internet, social networking systems and outspoken researchers and students of oppressive activities like Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage and Shawn Hannity. There are others, doing good work and they too must be thanked for their commitment to developing in us an awareness that will provide the anchor or life-ring for our children and grandchildren.

Thursday, October 22, 2009 is a big day for America; The Federal Government will vote in favor of their effort to silence opposition to the Obama Juggernaut leading us into oblivion as a nation. The leaders of the Communism, Islamic jihadists and other subversive elements in the world don’t have to worry about the demise of the United States all they have to do is wait for the George Soros led Obama flock of sheep to take us up the ramp as the Judas Goat that they are and into the slaughter house of democracy.

      For twelve years The DADS Foundation in conjunction with the Rutherford Institute and faithful volunteer parents waged war on this very form of repression. Speeches were made, facts were presented and accountability sought from public servants and their bureaucratic lackeys and to a degree we were capable of stalling the march to oblivion we are facing today.

      DADS is proud that we were instrumental in introducing and getting signed into law approximately 100 pieces of legislation on behalf of family values, effective drug prevention programs in our schools and other valuable measures to halt the speedy decline within our society. On the other side of the coin were the perpetrators of destruction, People for the American Way (an oxymoron), The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union), the State Teachers Unions and Departments of Education and Health and others whose sympathies lay with perverted self-serving entities with no morale backbone.

      However they had good company! Many on the right-wing some call them the “Christian Right” were complicit with the agenda espoused by the decedent purveyors of death to a moral society. The Christian Coalition, Focus on the Family, self-serving evangelists whoring the unsuspecting public out of their savings and a lack of back-bone in the majority of parent population who were unwilling to act upon knowledge and facts that were repeatedly presented to them.

      We are today were we have been placed by one generations lack of Faith and the Will to confront evil. So who can we look too today? Tea-Party organizers and complaining adults?

      We can, however, before we go to far in our commitment of support let me point out a few flaws in their approach to dealing with the destructive forces they will and are encountering:

      1, don’t wait for leadership from the pulpits of Beck, Limbaugh and others, get involved yourself and get educated on the issues before you. Give-up some of that precious security and get out and face the enemy. You won’t have far to look; your neighbor may be one, definitely your public school and its teachers are another, your union bosses are another and even within your church community itself. Ferret them out, confront them with the facts and demand they be accountable for their answers;

      2. be sure your Tea-Party group has a simple “small bite” agenda to accomplish what it can in your own backyard. The big picture is too big for you now…your time will come. Do the little things now and do them right;

      3. Become informed on the issues before us and be factually accurate before you make statements the opposition can use to discredit you. Once you are loaded with accurate data never back down from your opponent and demand that they be accountable for each of their responses. Make them stay on point and do not allow them to shout you down, switch the topic in mid stream or make you out to be an ill-informed spokesperson;

      4. Work to develop power within the precints and find committed leaders within each to carry-out the bigger plan from within and on a lesser scale that ultimately will merge into a superlative model to destroy your opponent;

      5. Cultivate power brokers of your own on school boards, in the media, in conservative organizations and require them to be committed and ask them to perform simple tasks that can be3 monitored to see if in fact they are working for the greater good of your cause;

      6. Develop articulate and charismatic spokespersons who can present your case for conservatism in a dignified manner and still be forceful enough to win the debate with the uninformed ideologies on the opposition;

      7. Not everyone can or will be willing to take the point position. Do not shun them. Instead find their niche, provide them with resources and direction for their role in the plan and use their talents to support your efforts. DADS had the best researcher in the national parent movement and that is the key that made DADAS so successful and the most serious threat during our time on the front lines;

      8. Use modern day tools to reach as many parties as possible, on both sides of the issue and even those straddling the fence. The more you activate the opposition the more opportunities you are provided to debate the issues and to insure the fence-sitters will fall to one side r the other. Usually, a fence sitter will fall to the side of reason rather than into the abyss of destruction they intuitively know is wrong;

      9. Build a financial chest for rainy days. The funds are available however contributors must see hope at the end of the day for the plan, a well developed plan of attack and leaders who are committed to a successful outcome…….no timidity allowed;

      10. It will become extremely warm in the activist kitchen and if you are concerned about the heat you should stay home! You will be slandered, your berliefs will be attacked, you will be branded with unthinkable allegations that are fabricated and that you will find difficult to defend, even when they are untrue, you will be threatened and your children may be made to pay a price as well…but what is the price of freedom from demagoguery?

      Take a minute, find a source that you believe will fortify you against the attacks and attackers find allies and go forth and do battle. In the end you will win out over evil. Good always wins when confronted by perversion, decadence and avarice. Be humble, be prepared and bring with you the shield of knowledge and wisdom.

      That is What I Think!

Do you have or are you going to DRESS-UP the banner on this section so it POPS when people go to it?

In your estimation how many words do you think the reader will endure with this section before they opt-out? 

      I awoke this morning, as I have for the past 23,676 mornings with an attitude! It was going to be a Mayday or a Hayday but I had not decided which as I opened my eyes, shook the cobwebs from my head, rubbed my eyes and made my way to the brewing pot of coffee in the kitchen.

      However, my Mayday was not the normal “internationally recognized communications distress call, used by ships and aircraft,” it was a determination if today would be the day the United States of America would succumb to the Obama administrations call for Population Overthrow and become a dictatorship.

      Have I now joined the Obama enemies list? So be it!

      America is out of control. It’s being lead and ruled by nefarious special interest prostitutes who care nothing for you and me.

      I have a number of radical suggestions in my BLOG “Retaking America!” however, before you click on it you ought to decide that you too have seen and heard enough over the years from Washington and State Capitols to begin organizing to take our country back…before it is too late.

      That is what I think!

 Today, is a special day in many countries around the world; Veterans Day, Armistice Day, Poppy Day. Whatever term applies to you today means a lot to me. My grandfather was shot, wounded and almost lost his life at the Somme in WWI, my father was wounded on the shores of France after the invasion of Normandy in WWII, and I was a child in-utero in an Army field hospital at the same time and was close to the action during the bombardment of England by the German V1 and V2 rockets that killed hundreds of thousands.

      With the recent Islamic Jihad massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, I wonder if today should not also be celebrated in defense of Human Life. Every television I have scrolled through looking for HOPE from the Obama Administration and activists who believe as I do, that life, all life from conception to natural death is precious and should be honored. Unfortunately, I have yet to find a network, including the right of center FOX Network, correcting the body count from the slaughter to what it is: fourteen.

      The young Chicago soldier, recently returned from her tour of duty in Iraq, was pregnant with their six week old child. When Obama and the Army saluted the dead they forgot, or deliberately avoided naming the in-utero child during the solemn ceremony. There is a lot of talk about the political correctness that may have caused this tragedy, or the fact we should not identify the Muslims as a radical group of terrorists for the sake of peace. Peace is celebrated on November 11 as the end of war and the celebration of PEACE. Should not the unnamed baby have been included in the memorial? Where is Right-to-Life? Where is FOX? Where is the Catholic Church? Where are the pro-life activists? Where are simple decent people? Is America finally succumbed to the P.C. virus?

      What in God’s name are we afraid of? Where are the brave hearts who should be leading the LIFE parade? Get out from under your rocks, America. The Obama decaying America, preceded by the cowardly liar Clinton following in the footsteps of an equally Supreme Court decision in the ‘60’s, Roe versus Wade, giving the culture of death a foothold has a vaccine--you and me! It’s time for us to stand, extend our arm and find the courage to STOP America’s madness; the killing of the unborn for any reason at any time godless individuals feel the need to be free from the punishment of a child.  Enjoy the memorable poem written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae.

In Flanders Fields  
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918) Canadian Army

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow  
Between the crosses row on row,  
That mark our place; and in the sky  
The larks, still bravely singing, fly  
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago  
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,  
Loved and were loved, and now we lie  
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:  
To you from failing hands we throw  
The torch; be yours to hold it high.  
If ye break faith with us who die  
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow  
In Flanders fields. ‘

      Possibly, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae would be ashamed of those of us who follow in the footsteps of those gallant men who died back then. In reading the final stanza I am touched and motivated to reach out and catch the thrown torch on behalf of children in-utero. To challenge the foes of life and to stand and defend the unprotected and innocent from the despicable hands of infanticide providers cowards who fear worldly retribution

Let me get this straight...

We're going to maybe have a health care   

plan written by a committee whose head says he  

doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't   

read it AND exempts themselves from it,

signed by a president that also hasn't read    

it and who smokes, with funding administered by a 

treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes,

overseen by a surgeon general who is obese,

and financed by a country that's nearly broke.

What could possibly go wrong?


"Cash for Clunkers" Results:

It’s taken 95% of the Obama bumper stickers off the road.

 Political correctness is off the chart and needs to be stopped! Offending others is a way of life and people ought to develop a thicker skin and get over it! Those who can’t or won’t ignore slurs or putdowns have to much time on their hands and should find a new line of work…let me explain.

      Let me begin with your hand. Simple enough? You have five digits on each hand. Each has been given a name. Growing up you probably learned the names of each extremity and never asked why each had a specific street, not to be confused with a scientific name, correct?

      For example, the thumb; you can give a thumbs up and that is acceptable. If you gave a thumb down sign the world could come to an end. It certainly did in the Roman Coliseum when Christians were fed to lions or losing Gladiators were killed to satisfy the perverse pleasure of the roaring crowds. Was this an indication of too many people having too much time on their hands?

      Next in line of digits is the index finger; why is it called the index finger? Could be that it was used, in the old days to finger through the paper work in search of a specific document so that it could be indexed for the proprietor’s benefit and record keeping purposes. It might have been used to signal your success as the best of your trade by holding up the finger to signify or identify, index you, as number one. It could have been identified as the index finger because it was used to point-out, to others, points on interest or importance by pointing that finger in the direction of the target, while three others pointed back at you. There was a lot of indexing back then. There are other uses for the index finger but I will leave those to your imagination.

      Then there is the insulting and infuriating middle finger. Why? I have never figured out why the middle digit has caused so much harm in society, after all it is simply the longest of the five fingers on your hand, so why the fuss? If it was combined with the other four fingers it would be considered a friendly wave. If used in conjunction with the index finger and thumb it is the letter “U” in signing vocabulary. There are other worthy uses of the middle finger like the letter “P”which is an inverted middle finger…so why all the anger when that passing motorist signals you with the middle finger extended upward? Is it not simply an indication that “U” are special? I have never figured out why we react so violently to digital waves. What am I missing?

      Then you have the ring finger. That one is easy. Doesn’t everyone wear a ring on either the left hand signifying marriage? While a ring on the right hand ring finger indicates a need for public awareness due to deep rooted insecurities.

      Finally we come to the “Pinky” finger. Have you ever seen a pink little finger? It appears that if you wear a ring on that finger you may well be a member of the third unit of the sexually liberated population, a homosexual. However, it could be a sign that real men aren’t concerned with their sexuality and have no fear about wearing a pinky finger ring among their friends. I used to wear a beautiful Sapphire in a brushed platinum setting on my pinky when I was younger.…because I liked the look. Got a problem with that big-boy?

      So here we are trying to understand why all the fuss about the digits on our hands. Here is what I think; the politically correct movement of far left loonies has such sensitive skin they can’t deal with truth. At least that is my impression coming from the great White House in Washington and the Dome we call Congress. May I suggest that they keep applying their skin cream to keep their outer layer conditioned for the affection of their own sexual preferences?

      I might suggest that they keep their filthy hands off my mouth and my written word and do something productive with their perverted lives. I am pushing back dear politically correct goons and look forward to challenging you at every turn when I use a word or two you may find offensive. 

      In  the next edition of What I Think I’ll provide a syntax  of words that will offend the sensitive thin skin of perverted and demented members of our society. It’s PUSH BACK time my friends and you can read it here!

      Love too all! 

That’s what I think.

Associated Press reported this story October 29, 2010: Here's What I Think! I await your comments:

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — William Lynch's life spiraled out of control in the 35 years since he alleges he and his brother were molested by a Jesuit priest: He struggled with depression, had nightmares and tried to kill himself twice.

"Many times I thought of driving down to LA and confronting Father Jerry. I wanted to exorcise all of the rage and anger and bitterness he put into me," Lynch told the newspaper. "You can't put into words what this guy did to me. He stole my innocence and destroyed my life."

Most of Lindner's family severed contact with him years ago after discovering he had molested his nieces and nephews when they were as young as 3.

Here's the question of the day: "Why was Lynch arrested? Why did he have to post bail? Why haven't the charges been dropped by now? Are the Jesuits not a forgiving order of cover-up priests?

I understand Lynder. I was a victinm at Loyola, (Montreal, Quebec),by a Jesuit priest, in the 60's. The order knew about his problem, allowed him to continue teaching 12 yr. olds, and when the heat was turned up they moved him to Northern Canada, where he taught at an Indian school, molested approximately 150 children there.

The Indian children filed a class action suit, in Toronto, Ontario, won their case and the priest simply passed away while the rest of us find ourselves in the same boat as William Lynch.

Did I mention the priest was George Epoch, S.J.?

Is there any justice?

My solution:

All pedophiles, go to prison for the rest of their life! They are are incurable. They MUST be confined in a super-max, institution, (prison)confined to their cells 24/7, no contact with anyone, except their spiritual advisor or the guard.

After all like Linder, according to his superior, the Rev. John McGarry, the provincial, "Lindner has recovered and resumed his work at the retirement home, where he helps care for 75 infirm priests. He is not allowed to leave the home unsupervised," he said.

McGarry continued, "As you can imagine it's very emotionally distressing to go through something like this. He hasn't spoken a lot about it," McGarry said. "He's living a quiet life of prayer and service within our community."

Exactly, all pedophiles should live out the rest of their lives in "a quiet life of prayer and service within our community."

What better way to prepare for eternal life?

The Jesuits should become advocates for Lynch, have him set free, hdemand al;l charges be dropped and expunged from his arrest record, apologize to him, again, and restrict Linder from ever setting foot outside the retirement home again.

Set Lynch free!

Have the Jesuits forgetten the teachings of Matthew and Luke, in their Bible: Matthew: 18-6: "On the other hand it would be better for anyone who leads astray one of these little ones who believe in m,e, to be drowned by a millstone around his neck, in the depths of the sea." And, Luke: 17-1 & 2: He said to His disciples: 1. "Scandals will inevitiably arise, but woe to him through whom they come. 2. He would be better off thrown into the sea with a millstone around his neck than giving scandal to one of these little ones."

Being the compassionat person I am, let'ds not implemnent the death penalty...that is too good for these extremely demented individuals. Let's give them plenty of time to pray and ask forgiveness.

That's What I Think!

I'm glad this came back around. I've been wanting to send this on to folks that never saw it the first time. Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the 2008 Presidential election:

  • Number of States won
  • by: Democrats: 19 Republicans: 29
  • Square miles of land won
  • by: Democrats: 580,000 Republicans: 2,427,000
  • Population of counties won
  • by: Democrats: 127 million Republicans: 143 million
  • Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won
  • by: Democrats: 13.2 Republicans: 2.1
