Balance..

According to Webster: bal·ance,  A state of equilibrium. 

According to Webster: e·qui·lib·ri·um, A condition in which all acting influences are canceled by others, resulting in a stable, balanced, or unchanging system.

I received an update yesterday from the watchdog group;

 

Which provided a 6:49 minute video entitled;

 

 Which I then (as standard practice) forwarded to everyone in my address book, ..and which I now provide below and invite you to watch…

Which brings us to the motivation for today’s offering…

I received a number of responses to my e-mails, ..albeit only one stood out, ..which I now share with you; …

“They paid taxes, “dufus,” and they paid into social security that they will never see. Where is your sense of balance?

And there within my friends, (at least in my opinion,) ..is why America’s economy is “down the drain.” …

..beginning with (George “Duba”) ..our (throw-back) to the good old (carpetbagging days) ..of the 1870s,  ..”Duba” ..or Bush 43, (at least in my opinion,) deserves the title of “dufus” a hell of a lot more than I do.

However, ..when dealing with individuals who believe that shooting the messenger will somehow bring about a positive outcome, aka, (liberals) ..there’s not much you can do.

One more time, ..for the Gipper ! 

 

According to Webster: il·le·gal, (in context) Prohibited by law. Unacceptable.

According to Webster: com·pas·sion, Deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with the wish to relieve it.

According to Webster: un·der·stand·ing, Characterized by or having comprehension, good sense, or discernment.

 
Let’s make it real simple, American citizens, (at least those that are gainfully employed) “pay taxes” to (support the government.) A government implemented by a group of (historically honest) ..well-meaning individuals, ..historically referred to as “our founding fathers,” ..who by the power invested in them by their victory over King George the third of England, ..penned a document, ..historically identified as the “Constitution of the United States of America.”

The Constitution, for those of you who may be rusty? ..about the provisions, a.k.a. “LAWS” established by our founding fathers, ..(the federal government is responsible, by law, to secure and protect the borders of the United States of America.

Specifically…

The Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is charged with preventing the entry of terrorists, securing the borders, and carrying out immigration enforcement functions. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), a component of DHS, has primary responsibility for securing the borders of the United States, preventing terrorists and their weapons from entering the United States, and enforcing hundreds of U.S. trade and immigration laws. Within CBP, the U.S. Border Patrol’s mission is to detect and prevent the illegal entry of aliens across the nearly 7,000 miles of Mexican and Canadian international borders and 2,000 miles of coastal borders surrounding Florida and Puerto Rico.

I am (not) an individual “without compassion” and appreciation for the plight of individuals, who for no other reason, than the circumstance of their birth, ..reside in Countries and Nations other than America.

I am an individual, ..a “very fortunate” individual to have been born in the United States of America.

I am also very fortunate to have been raised in America at a time in history when America was presided over by men and women in our government whose focus was on America, ..instead of the world.

Americais a Nation, ..a Grand Nation, ..albeit, ..America is not the World, ..nor is it written in the U.S. Constitution that America is responsible for the world.

I was raised by parents, who, ..for want of a better definition, were common “rank and file” American citizens.

My father taught me that a man (a real man) ..is self-reliant and responsible. He taught me that to be a man was to work and earn your way. My father also taught me that it was a good thing to be charitable, to help individuals less fortunate than myself when it was appropriate.

 

According to Webster: ap·pro·pri·ate, Suitable for a particular person, condition, occasion, or place; fitting.

My father never advised that I or any of my siblings should provide for another before providing for ourselves.

Our current government, ..if one actually has the tenacity to referred to our current government as “our” government, (as our) …

According to Webster: our, The possessive form of we.

To mean inclusive, ..belonging to everyone.

..is and has been since George “Duba” ..running amok.

Continuing…

In America, “we” elect a President, ..the “President of the United States,” ..we do not elect a (President of the World.) We, “we the people,” pay taxes to support “our” government, ..a government that by law and morality is responsible to the people, ..the citizens of the United States.

The men and women, citizens of Mexico, do not vote in American elections.

The men and women, citizens of Afghanistan, do not vote in American elections.

The men and women, citizens of China, do not vote in American elections.

A man or a woman, citizens of the United States, have no jurisdiction or rights in Mexico.

A man or woman, citizens of the United States, have no jurisdiction or rights in Afghanistan.

A man or woman, citizens of the United States, have no jurisdiction or rights in China.

Question: So why do we, “We the People” ..of the United States, turn a blind eye to the men and women who work for us in Washington D.C., ..when they spend our tax dollars persecuting a war in Afghanistan ? 

Question: What benefit is provided to the “rank and file” tax-paying American citizen from a war in Afghanistan? ..do dead Americans have some value that I’m not aware of?

Question: What benefit is provided to the “rank-and-file” tax-paying American citizen by “our” Government turning a blind eye to men and women from Mexico or Canada disregarding our immigration laws?

Question: What benefit is provided to the rank and file taxpaying American citizen by having the Lions share of the (every day) products sold in America, manufactured in China?

Question: What benefit is provided to America by trade agreements that are responsible for (27 million Americans ) being out of work ? 

 

Washington D.C. is not Mount Olympus, ..and our President, ..our Senators, ..and our Congressman and congresswomen are not Gods.

Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow

Crusader Rabbit…
