A FUNNY THING HAPPENED TO INSPIRATION ON MY WAY TO BLOG….

Hello all! Well there was (just in case you noticed)  a new blip in my normal, quiet, political existence!  I will name it a lifus interruptis.. or perhaps a shit happens episode; but whatever it was,  my last blogging was .. actually my last blogging for quite a period of time.  I will say that the loss of my dear Sister and traveling companion affected me in many ways, and I was sort of sucked into myself dealing with loss (ps – it takes longer than you think, no matter how you try to intellectualize it). And of course as sisters go, I believe we were closer than most get an opportunity to be; having been roommates for many of our Senior years.

Anyway, now I am back and with brains and fingers working together with eyes and opinions bouncing around looking for a way to get out! I am once again committed to the daily review of left wing baloney and BS – after all, what’s more fun than picking apart left wing political philosophies! It’s a wonderful thing: that is of course unless it’s yours that’s being picked apart!!

And I salute the Washington Career Politicos to continue to chaff, gaff and help us laugh. Thereby providing fodder for the grist mill. Which of course ends when the mischief making is self destructive to our union!

And lately, one could spend days counting the bad ideas spewing from Washington!  Don think so? Well consider how many States have been reviewing the rules to withdraw from the “United” States as a precursor to an all out battle for the heart and soul of our beloved country. Who can blame “we the people” having suffered through all the Obama mischief making to void the constitution and make our country his kingdom!

All the government freeloaders finally outnumber those that prefer work. Yep those folks who don’t want to be in charge of their own lives; who want to be told what to do, what to think, what to eat….. you get the drift! The welfare Zombies. It’s just to bad that the freeloaders just don’t get it that, when to working people stop working there won’t be anyone to provide largess for the freeloaders!!

You think there may be a bit of rioting? Pissed off people when the stuff runs out? Duhhhhh!

YOU EITHER HAVE IT – OR YOU DON’T!

And of course, then, it only depends on exactly what your “it” is..

Just in case during your reading of my musings you haven’t realized it, the Pundit is a strict constructionist. As, in my humble opinion, if you have a document, containing set of precepts that have been proved, over time to allow freedom, while protecting the governed, that has built in checks and balances to discourage the usurping of power by any one branch, person or group and at the same allows for thoughtful and balanced governance. And includes the peaceful transfer of power from one group to another, one person to another, by the will of the people who exercise their vote. By gosh, by golly!!! You have a gem and need to keep it protected and safe!

And based on the latest activities in Washington by our Dictator in Chief, who is trying to jam socialism (then communism) down our freedom loving throats, I am happy to report that the attempt is beginning to stick in our freedom loving craws!! The great expectations and adoration what has been heaped on Obama is beginning to wane and more people every day are realizing that this dude has an agenda, one which we all object to (except for a few communists and other types who want to see the fall of the USA).

When I am contemplating the state of the union, I try to imagine Ben Franklin, or Patrick Henry, or George Washington and what they would be thinking and doing during these dangerous times. And so, like Patrick Henry, I have started by being a town crier and volunteered to do some phoning for group of patriots in a state where getting out the vote will mean electing a conservative, strict constructionist. It doesn’t matter that I am not residing in the state, but I can make a difference – or at least try!

So if things go the way I fear they will, since our Peoples have become lazy and slothful and the majority seem to want something for nothing, they will get nothing for something – their personal freedom!!

THE BILL OF RIGHTS –

Call me a stickler, but I believe that the “Bill of Rights” was meant for everyone, and it’s especially for those with whom the majority may disagree. So, for the record, below is the short version: (click on “Bill of Rights” to get the full text!)

1.    FREEDOM OF RELIGION

2.    RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS

3.    CONDITIONS FOR QUARTERS OF SOLDIERS

4.    RIGHT OF SEARCH AND SEIZURE REGULATED

5.    RIGHT TO FAIR TRIAL

6.    RIGHT TO A SPEEDY TRIAL

7.    RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY

8.    EXCESSIVE BAIL, CRUEL PUNISHMENT

9.    RULE OF CONSTRUCTION OF CONSTITUTION

10.  RIGHT OF THE STATES TO PETITION GOVERNMENT

Having enumerated those rights above, I must say that as of late there have been seeing comments appearing across a variety of blogs and posts on the internet that question the rights of others that are writing and posting on the internet things with which they disagree.

Could anything posted on the internet be more dangerous than those who want to take away another authors right to post? Of course that would probably be close to impossible, but the very idea is alarming! Disagreement and debate is a necessary activity of a free people! And the internet has allowed peoples all over the globe to read and learn about the rights of others. So we must exercise CAUTION, and WISDOM, as if the rights of one person are threatened, it affects the rights of ALL people! So suggesting, even thinking of quashing debate…is a very, very slippery slope. As, who will decide what is acceptable and unacceptable?

Without a doubt, I believe that the situation we currently find ourselves in is exactly what our Forefathers had in mind when they wrote and adopted that venerated document  the BILL OF RIGHTS!

It is a double edged sword for us to proclaim freedom for ourselves and for those who agree with us, but leave out those that don’t have similar beliefs. This is certainly NOT freedom and especially not religious freedom! Are we Christians so insecure in our personal beliefs that we feel we have to control those that don’t share our beliefs?

I certainly hope not!!

AMERICA – A TURNING POINT APPROACHES

As a Senior Citizen, it has never, not once in my entire 65 years occurred to me that we would be making a Presidential choice between a Conservative Republican and a Marxist Democrat. And if you had asked me even 4 years ago, I would have guffawed at the thought.

But, here we are. It has become evident that the “great” Obama has turned out to be a “Manchurian Candidate” and the only difference is that Obama is conscious of what he is doing, and the “candidate” was at least a brain washed pawn. Sadly, today the only “brain washed pawns” are the people who believed the “hope and change” line that pivoted Mr. Obama into the Whitehouse. Not the communists mind you, but the hopeful, and optimistic Americans in all walks of life that put their hopes into this President.

And, now I realize that truly, many of our young Americans have been brainwashed into believing that a basically communist social and governmental system can right all the wrongs, take care of all the problems, feed all the people without sacrifice, and not have those that were in power abuse it!! What a big order, and of course a farce! It is, I believe, unforgivable and cruel of their educators to allow this. However, I also know that it is not surprising that this “collective” philosophy is the rule of the day because teachers “unions” are powerful, and all teachers must conform. And given the reduced interest in such things by most Americans of any and all ages, (And that is one of the saddest statements that I have made.) “The great experiment”, as John Adams called the USA, may after all succumb to the rule of “the path of least resistance”.

So while I can still remember, I have found myself more and more saying, “it used to be”, “in my day”, “it wasn’t always” and a litany of other such remarks. And I work hard to instill the love of freedom in any and all youngsters that listen!
