According to Webster: “race1,” A group of people classified on the basis of common history, nationality, or geographic distribution:
According to Webster: “race2,” A competition of speed, as in running or cycling.
Let’s start right at the top with Barack Obama since he is our current…
According to Webster: “cor·rupt,” (in context) Contaminated; To destroy or subvert honesty and integrity; – immoral and objectionable.
Historically, no one elected to the office of President of this Nation has been documented to be responsible for as many lies, deceptions and unethical practices as Barack Obama.
ABC’s Sunday night “Scandal” is like an Episcopalian church social in comparison to the disgrace that Barack Obama has fraught upon America.
Basic humanity, and the (Ten Commandments), dictate that human beings at a bare minimum, understand the difference between “right and wrong” and treat each other with respect.
I could go all the way back to when Barack Obama began campaigning early in 2007 and site examples of his proclivity for misleading the American public. Albeit, his “current” lies and deceptions are much clearer.
According to Webster: “clear,” Free from obstruction, or hindrance; open.
To those of you that are still mired in the muck of racism, or more correctly, what you (perceive to be racism), do both of us a favor and find time “this week” to go to the library and check out whatever books, and/or, publications you need to, to research the social and economic development of Africa over the last 237 years.
At which point, even if you are living on the lowest rung of the American latter, (below “our” government’s conjured poverty line), or you perceive you are living on the lowest end of the American latter, compare what you have, and/or “own,” (in terms of social and economic opportunities) not available to the majority of the individuals and families that escaped the horrors of the slave trade in the seventeenth and eighteenth Centuries.
Currently in America, we, “We the People,” all of us, white, black, Brown, red or yellow, we are all living in (the same) politically dominated society that men like Andrew Jackson and Benjamin Franklin warned us against.
When you look at the back of your hand and you see other than white, (as I see), I am not your enemy, I am your best friend.
At 72 years of age, I have lived well beyond my expectations and the statistical longevity of the men in my family.
As cruel as this may seem to the demographics categorized as Septuagenarian, octogenarian and nonagenarians, “we” have no futures.
The future is, and has always been reserved for the young.
According to Webster: “young,” (in context) Vigorous and enterprising; dynamic.
I have no axe to grind or no carpetbag to fill, I dwell month to month, (existing) on my (non-entitlement) Social Security benefit and a portion of a pension earned after 18 years of punching a clock. All tolled, I contributed to Social Security for 46 years, a grand program implemented by a president that understood the needs of people and delivered.
(Franklin Delano Roosevelt).
..signing the “Social Security Act of 1935” into law.
Without our Social Security my wife and I would be living on the street and standing in line for a bowl of soup.
(Barack Hussein Obama).
..signing the “Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act of 2010.”
With Barack Obama’s, “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” millions of hard-working honest Americans have already lost their health care insurance, ..and (it is only a matter of time) before millions more will lose their coverage in “our” current “extreme left” dominated environment.
Fact: Barack Obama took his oath of office with his hand on the Lincoln Bible, promising to uphold the Constitution, which includes upholding the principles and best, and/or, traditional ideals of America.
(Abraham Lincoln – Mount Rushmore).
On June 16, 1858, in Springfield Illinois, upon accepting the nomination for the Republican parties candidate for Illinois’ United States Senior, Abraham Lincoln eloquently delivered his house divided speech.
From which I provide you with the best-known passages;
“A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half slave and half free.
I do not expect the Union to be dissolved, I do not expect the house to fall, but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other.
Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; …
..or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become lawful in all the States, old as well as new, North as well as South.”
Their my friends, with-in the words of Abraham Lincoln is the definition of moral character..
One of Barack Obama’s most admired individuals was a community organizer by the name of Saul D. Alinsky who authored a book entitled…
..the last book he published shortly before his death in 1971.
The inspiration for “Rules for Radicals” was drawn directly from Alinsky’s personal experiences over the course of his career as a community organizer. It was also taken from the lessons he learned from his University of Chicago professor, Robert Park, who taught Alinsky to view communities as “reflections of the larger processes of an urban society”.
The methods he developed and practiced across the country were placed directly into the book as a guide for “up-and-coming community organizing” (like Barack Obama) for the new generation of radicals emerging from the 1960s.
Alinsky believed heavily in collective action, and borders…
Collective action, (in my opinion), was created by and for individuals who never achieved an understanding of, or the “quality” of self-reliance and personal responsibility.
..as a result of the work he did with the C.I.O and the Institute for Juvenile Research in Chicago where he first began to develop his own, distinct method of community organizing.
Additionally, his late work with the Citizens Action Program (CAP) provided some of his most whole and conclusive practices in organizing though the empowerment of the poor, though not well-known. Saul Alinsky understood community structure and the impoverished and the importance of their empowerment as a successful element of community activism and used both as tools to create powerful, active organizations.
He also used shared social problems as external antagonists to “heighten local awareness of similarities among residents and their shared differences with outsiders”.
Anyone in America (a citizen) who truly thinks of themselves as an “outsider” in America, ..does not “understand” what it is to be an American, ..therefore I will agree with them that they (are not) Americans.
Ironically, this was one of Alinsky’s most powerful tools in community organizing; to bring a collective together, he would bring to light an issue that would stir up conflict with some agency to unite the group.
This would provide the organization with a specific “villain” to confront and made direct action easier to implement.
These tactics as a result of decades of organizing efforts, along with many other lessons, were poured into Rules for Radicals to create “his” guide for community organization.
In the first chapter, Alinsky began with the statement; …
“What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be.”
Question: Anyone beginning to get a more exact picture of just who Barack Obama really is?
He continued by breaking down the class structures in America during that time and introduced the three main socioeconomic levels of society.
First are the “Haves” or upper class who want to preserve the status quo, under which they possess the money
power in society. The “Haves” are the smallest group in Alinsky’s social structure, but despite this, they remain the most powerful due to the vast amount of resources available to them.
The second group is the “Have-little, Want-mores” which represent the middle class, the largest class of people in America at the time. Alinsky believed this group to have the greatest potential power in the current social climate but were also the hardest to sway to a cause due to their overall contentment compared to the poorer classes.
Last are the “Have-nots” or those in poverty. Alinsky saw this class as the most volatile and easy to organize and spent the majority of his career working with the “Have-nots” to implement change in communities across the United States.
The discontent and general lack of resources within this class of people made presenting a common issue for them to change simpler for Alinsky because all people within a community would be unhappy with issues detrimentally affecting the entirety of the community. After introducing his socioeconomic class structure, Alinsky finished the chapter with a lesson on morality, in which he warned community organizers of the peril of wealth and material distractions from achieving greater welfare for society as a whole.
The first chapter acts as a history lesson. Setting up “his” organizers to deal with and explains to them the various characteristics of his strategy.
There, with-in those particular words of Barack Obama’s, is the definitions of corruption and deception.
The competition in the world today is not between white people and black people or brown people or red people or yellow people.
The real and (dangerous) competition in the world today, is between wealthy elite people , ..and wealthier elite people.
My last words today, I again borrow from Anthony Hopkins line from the movie; “The Edge.”
Truth forges understanding, I’ll be back tomorrow
