A LESSON FOR AMERICA

Didja’ hear the one about the college economic professor who made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class?  The class had insisted that President Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich…a great equalizer as a result of redistribution of wealth.

The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan.”  All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive and A.  After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B.  The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less, and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too, so they studied little.  The second test average was a D.  No one was happy.

When the third test rolled around, the average was an F.  The scores never increased, as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.  All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told tthem that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great.  But when the government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.

I’m not sure where that story originated, but the outcome of Obama’s socialist agenda can’t be explained in more simpler terms unless one reads and understands the words of Dr. Adrian Rogers, who in 1931 said this:  “When half the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work becaus somebody else is going to get what they work for…that my dear friend is about the end of any nation.”

TO PROTECT AND DEFEND?

Isn’t it reassuring to hear our elected officials swear (on the Bible) to protect and defend this country against all enemies, foreign and domestic?  Isn’t it rather disconcerting to discover they’ve lied through their teeth?

When Islamic terrorist-operatives crashed two passenger jets into the World Trade Center, another into the Pentagon, while a fourth (destined for the White House) crashed into a field in Pennsylvania,  that act on September 11th was an act of war against the United states by a group (an army) known as al-Qaida.

It wasn’t the first attack by al-Qaida against this country and it’s interests, when you consider the USS Cole incident, and the bombings of U.S. Embassies around the world.  Until September 11th however, only lip-service was used as a weapon against terrorists by the Clinton administration.  “We will seek out and bring the perpetrators to justice”…he said.  All talk, no action…save for a few cruise missles fired here and there without effect.

But in the aftermath of September 11th, something different happened.  We had a new president who took seriously his oath of office and the vow to protect and defend this country against all enemies, foreign and domestic.  In the beginning, most all members of Conress agreed to take the fight to the enemy, and not stop until they were all killed or captured.  In war, that is as it should be.

As General Douglas Macarthu once pointed out, “In war, the only alternative is victory.”  General George Patton said “You don’t win wars by dying for your country.  You win wars by making the other SOB die for HIS country.”   Too bad we don’t have leaders like that anymore.  Today, we have members of Congress who seem to have forgotten their oath of offie to PROTECT and DEFEND this country against ALL ENEMIES, foreign and domestic.

The House Intelligence Committee has asked the CIA to provide documents about the now-canceled program to kill al-Qaida leaders.  The House move is seen as a precursor to what will likely become a full-blown investigation into the secret operation;  their target?  Former President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney!  Two of this country’s elected officials who took their oaths of office seriously, and sat out to do exactly what their oaths of office demanded.

WHO’S AFRAID OF SARAH PALIN?

For years, militant feminists preached the doctrine that women didn’t need a man…careers were more important than motherhood, so…get outta’ the kitchen and join the workforce;  and if you want a kid, forget the man..just grab a turkey baster.  And if you change your mind, grab an abortion doctor.

Then came the clarion call for a woman to be elected President of the United States.  Didn’t matter if the woman was qualified…only that her plumbing and other female attributes were anatomically correct.  The “clarion call” originated from those militant feminists.  They wanted a woman in the White House…period! 

The Democrats picked Geraldine Ferraro to be Walter Mondale’s running mate and the militant feminists were orgasmic.  The ticket lost, of course.  Not because of Geraldine necessarily, but because Mondale looked directly into the camera and said “As President, I will raise your taxes.”

The next best hope for the feminists was Hillary Clinton.  More orgasmic reaction.  “Finally…we’re gonna’ get a woman in the White House” they said.  Didn”t matter if Hillary lied through her teeth claiming to have come under fire from terrorists, didn’t matter about all that Whitewater baggage.  Hillary was anatomically correct, and that’s ALL that mattered.

The election for Hillary was a big bust. (No pun intended.)  But, in the mix came Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, her five kids, and a hubby she still considered “my guy.”  Her resume showed her to be the perfect feminist.  She could do all the things a man could do.  She’s even been a sportscaster just as Ronald Reagan was.  In other words, she could bring home the bacon AND fry it up in a pan.

One would think the militant feminists would be absolutely ecstatic over her selection as a vice presidential nominee in 2008…a woman on the brink of breaking the “glass ceiling.”  Here was a woman they could hold up as their new “savior”, their icon, their hero, their roll model.  It’s what they’ve always wanted.  It’s what they’d been shooting for…and finally a woman comes along with all the attributes for which they’d been searching.  And she was anatomically correct.

But did they close ranks around her?  Nope.  THEY FEARED HER, and still do to this day.  The militant feminists and all other liberals fear Sarah Paln.  They fear her so much they embarked on a scheme to demonize and destroy her.  They said it was irresponsible for a woman with five kids to run for vice president. (What happened to ‘get outta’ the kitchen and join the workforce’?)

The attacked her 17 year old daughter for being pregnant without benefit of marriage.  (When did militant feminists suddenly become opposed to pre-marital sex?)  Left wing bloggers, columnists, and now….even news reporters and other liberal talking heads have pulled out al the stops in their attempts to destroy Sarah Palin…because they’re AFRAID of her.

Why?  Because she is pro-gun, pro-tax cuts, pro-life…and… and… she’s happily married…TO A MAN!
