..however when a whirlwind graduates to a tornado, it leaves very little undamaged in its path.

If you check my archives, you will find that I’ve unequivocally never denied being a bigot…

According to Webster: “big·ot,” n. One who is strongly partial to one’s own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those who differ.

As to your accusation that I am a hater, you couldn’t be more wrong. I fought beside black men in Vietnam and I loved ‘em all.

You don’t seem to be at all confused about color, albeit with that said you don’t seem to have a clue when it comes to the definition of character.

The men I stood beside in Vietnam had grit and an affection for each other that Barack Obama has never known and will never know, because Barack Obama has no grit and he has no character.

Life Science 101, …

The difference between white people in black people?

To answer my question, you will need three items.

1). A white person.

2). A black person.

3). A baseball bat.

Pick up the baseball bat and moved behind the white person and the black person, then reaching into the depths of your soul, swing the bat as hard as you can and bash in their skulls.

With this phase completed, move forward and remove the bone fragments.

Inside you will find the (Hue) of both brains to be the same.

Any questions?

I’ve traveled to America twice, once in 1982, during a break from University and again in 2003 to interview for a job that I didn’t acquire.

Ronald Reagan was your president on my first visit and your country was at the top of the charts.

On my second visit George W. Bush was your president and although his abilities were measured with a very short stick, America was still at the top of the page.

Concerning your current leader’s station in the world, there is no longer a stick short enough and America’s page in the wastebasket.

For Americans to allow themselves this embarrassment, you deserve a gun to your head.

Deborah from Charleston,     (Conundrum, Hole vs Whole).

First let me say that your style of writing and then explaining what you’ve written is most wonderful. I’ve never cared much for reading anything other than fiction, mostly romance and adventure novels.

Because folks who write about what’s going on in the world in newspapers and magazines never explain their adjectives.

I voted for Barack Obama because all my friends said he was going to change the country into a better place to live.

What Obama didn’t do was tell anyone that the only one he was concerned with providing a better life, was himself and his family.

I can’t speak for the rest of the folks who voted for him, but for me I’ve never felt so betrayed.

I am now a registered independent, and I will never vote for another Democrat as long as I live.

readers forum - as I see it 3

Hello Deborah, thank you for visiting my site, ..thank you for your appreciation and for your narrative.

With that said, I make no secret of my admiration for the Constitution and believing that if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.

Homo sapiens, and/or, human beings have been confused over (want) and (need) since the beginning of time.

“Want” is a powerful (lure), not as powerful as (greed), albeit at least (in my opinion) “want” is the (gateway drug) to greed and if an individual isn’t stalwart in their commitment to right, he or she can easily be seduced by the promise of more.

Barack Obama’s life as a charlatan, and/or, fraud began at his mother’s knee by both word and by deed as his mother was raised by her parents to (scam the system), depending on the charity of others for her education and for Barack’s diapers when the “love” of her (moment) deserted her and his child for himself.

harsh words - graphic 2a

According to Webster: “harsh,” adj. Unpleasantly coarse and rough.

Of course my words are harsh, they are meant to be harsh. People are not made of glass nor are they filled with pudding and marshmallows – at least they aren’t until they fall under the spell of idealistic, socialist/communist politicians who will explicate whatever they have to, ..to ride the train for free.

Barack Obama is not the only freeloader in Washington or in America, we, “we the people” are plagued by politicians that seek our support with every fiber of their being until they achieve their goal, at which point they become scarcer than a pimple on a turtles back.

(True story).

Tuesday last a little after one p.m. my phone rang and I was invited to sit in on a teleconference town hall sponsored by South Dakota Congresswoman Kristi Noem.

I was also invited to speak and I stayed on the line for forty-five minutes, assured occasionally that my wait would not be much longer.

Then Ms. Noem’s screener came on and asked me what my question was?

To which I replied; “I’d like to ask Congresswoman Noem why the federal reserve bank has never been audited and more importantly, why a private (for-profit) corporation has total control over the U.S. Treasury?

Five minutes later I was notified that Ms. Noem was out of time for answering more questions, then the fellow wished me a good day and hung up.

I voted for Ms. Noem twice, I have informed Ms. Noem in a subsequent email that I will not vote for her again.

The people we elect to public office in America are not bad people, (well not all of them). I’m not saying that you’re a bad person if you want a new car, more money and a better life.

As I stated at the onset, (want) is a powerful lure and wealth is the ultimate temptation.

The answer lies not in an Ivy League education, but in family and Christian values.

Name and Town withheld,     (Conundrum – Hole vs Whole).

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America :

1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized.

2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.

3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.

4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.

5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about – yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

Think about it!

And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.

Makes you wonder who is doing the math.

These three, sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.

Funny how that works.

And here’s another one worth considering…

2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money?

What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t.

Think about it…..

..and Last but not least,

3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.

Am I the only one missing something?

Roshane from ?,         (America has a gun to its head).

let me say ur belief system is kind of radical because ur equating Obama with Hitler not the as the opposition but as the enemy…. he is an American first than a liberal (as u say)…

..u my friend by feeding paranoia have contributed to the cultural fringe and u also radicalized others with u…..

u know Churchill once said United we stand and divided we fall….

(Excuse me).

As ignorance is not something I consciously promote, I’d like to take a moment to clear something up for my “new friend” Roshane.

The phrase; “United we stand, divided we fall,” originated with the Greek storyteller Aesop in his fable; “The four oxen and the lion,” directly, and indirectly in his fable; “The bundle of sticks.”

The Four Oxen and the Lion, text; …

A Lion used to prowl about a field in which Four Oxen used to dwell. Many a time he tried to attack them; but whenever he came near they turned their tails to one another, so that whichever way he approached them he was met by the horns of one of them. At last, however, they fell a-quarrelling among themselves, and each went off to pasture alone in a separate corner of the field. Then the Lion attacked them one by one and soon made an end of all four.

United we stand, divided we fall.

The Bundle of Sticks, text; …

An old man on the point of death summoned his sons around him to give them some parting advice. He ordered his servants to bring in a faggot of sticks, and said to his eldest son: “Break it.”

The son strained and strained, but with all his efforts was unable to break the Bundle. The other sons also tried, but none of them was successful.

“Untie the faggots,” said the father, “and each of you take a stick.” When they had done so, he called out to them: “Now, break,” and each stick was easily broken. “You see my meaning,” said their father.

Union gives strength.

What Winston Churchill said was; “We shall not falter, we shall not fail.”

Continuing…

..but should it matter to u…well it should because the REAL ENEMY are the people at Wall Street running hedge funds or banks or corporations like Monsanto that have entered the White House with Karl Rove and never left these are the people that control our debates our speech our education our health care system everything u name it thats people u should stand upto and be angry at them…

..the fact is Karl Rove actually got Bush elected by playing on people’s fears and angry (Matthew Dowd wrote a memo on this) and he also tapped into that cultural resentment vein in America that great politicians like REAGAN KENNEDY EISENHOWER NIXON FDR all tried to avoid he [Rove] made us hate each other…

Americans used to talk politics like movies or books and they could disagree and co-exist without all the name calling…

my point is for once listen to the other side and try to reason and SEE if your VIEWS stand the test of facts and reality…

Hello Roshane, welcome back, ..why? ..in truth, “because” I believe that your gibberish will be entertaining to my readers.

The first time you wrote I thought you were simply a young person with a lot of time on her hands perpetrating a joke.

Albeit, with this offering I realize that you are not a joke, but rather a misguided individual who needs help understanding reality from fantasy.

In your offering you group Reagan, Kennedy, Eisenhower, Nixon and FDR together as like-minded individuals, then you throw in Karl Rove as if he were somehow important enough to change the course of the Mississippi.

Karl Rove, (for what it’s worth), was nothing more than a dim shadow who whispered into the ear of a patronized imbecile. An imbecile that referred to him [Rove] as “Turd Blossom.”

George W and turd Blossom

Admirable credentials? I don’t think so!

(FYI), A turd blossom is any flowering plant that germinates with-in a Cow Pie or Buffalo Chip.

Continuing…

You articulated at one point that; …

“Americans used to talk about politics like movies or books and they could disagree and coexist without all the name-calling.”

Reality…

Question: So why am I constantly robbing Peter to pay Paul?

boy - what does that mean 2

Etymology…

The origin comes from the Peter tax and the Paul tax: …

The expression refers to times before the Reformation when Church taxes had to be paid to St. Paul’s church in London and to St. Peter’s church in Rome; originally it referred to neglecting the Peter tax in order to have money to pay the Paul tax.

The Peter tax referred to the tax that people had to pay to fund the building of St. Peter’s Church, while the Paul tax referred to the tax that the people had to pay to fund the building of St. Paul’s Cathedral.

When the idiom says “rob”, it takes that if you don’t pay a tax, you are robbing a person (pope, in this case) of what that person rightfully deserves.

Thus, the saying means, not paying the Peter tax in order to pay the Paul tax.

There are of course controversial views; as etymology, like any science or enterprise is always subject to more than one opinion.

Albeit, (at least in my opinion), when it’s boiled down and the fat is ladled off the top, the phrase simply means; …

Using the money allocated to pay one debt to pay another, and/or, …

Fortunately the Lions share of my feedback has been good and even useful, albeit I am not without my “detractors” and that’s okay, because if everyone walked in my shoes, there would be no purpose to my crusade.

To be clear, I am no Messiah nor am I a leader of men, I am a messenger who has journeyed for 72 years upon the path drawn for me by a dedicated self-reliant father and a loving, compassionate mother. My path has served me well, so well, (at least in my opinion), that it is (my opinion), that I would be remiss in my responsibility to God and my fellow man if I did not share (my truth) and (my opinions).

Now, to answer my adversaries’ question: …

Constitution - fraidy cat

As a law-abiding, patriotic American citizen, I not only have the authority to criticize Barack Obama, I am duty-bound by the U.S. Constitution.

basic training - Fort Ord 1a

I am duty-bound both by birth, and by the oath that I swore to the United States of America upon my induction into the U.S. Army.

According to Webster: “oath,” (in context)  A solemn, formal declaration or promise to fulfill a pledge, calling on “God” as your witness.

taking the oath

Barack Obama has sworn allegiance to America and to “our” Constitution, (not once, but twice) in the past six years.

He has not honored his oath, nor (in my fervid opinion), is he honoring the Americans that fought and died in the pursuit of building the greatest nation on the planet.

Obama’s welfare and entitlement mentality is not American, nor should it ever become American.

The following material is to grow my adversaries’ knowledge of opinion from beyond our shores…

Conundrum – Hole vs Whole..

Obama's America - Hole 1c

(Obama’s “hole” America).

my America - the real America

(My “whole” America).

According to Webster: “co·nun·drum,” (in context) A difficult situation; a dilemma.

Enigmatically speaking, my purpose here today is pretty much the same as my purpose is every day, to bring my readers up to speed on reality.

Question: Who in the hell are the folks that make up words and why aren’t they in jail?

Etymology…

According to Webster: “et·y·mol·o·gy,” (in context) The origin and history of a linguistic form by its basic elements, earliest known use, and changes in meaning, tracing its transmission from one language to another and identifying its cognates in other languages, and reconstructing its ancestral form where possible.

In the grand book of etymology, you will find the word (hole) on page – what does it matter?

Hole (n.)

Old English hol “orifice, hollow place, cave, perforation,” from Proto-Germanic *hul (cognates: Old Saxon, Old Frisian, Old High German hol, Middle Dutch hool, Old Norse holr, German hohl “hollow,” Gothic us-hulon “to hollow out”), from PIE root *kel- (2) “to cover, conceal” (see cell). As a contemptuous word for “small dingy lodging or abode” it is attested from 1610s.

Meaning “a fix, scrape, mess” is from 1760.

Hole in the wall “small and unpretentious place” is from 1822; to hole up first recorded 1875.

To need (something) like a hole in the head, applied to something useless or detrimental, first recorded 1944 in entertainment publications, probably a translation of a Yiddish expression such as ich darf es vi a loch in kop.

Hole (v.)

digging a hole 1a

“To make a hole,” Old English holian “to hollow out, scoop out” (see hole (n.)). Related: Holed; holing.

Turning the page, and/or, (several), you will find the word (whole), it matters.

Whole (adj.)

Old English hal “entire, whole; unhurt, uninjured, safe; healthy, sound; genuine, straightforward,” from Proto-Germanic *haila- “undamaged” (cognates: Old Saxon hel, Old Norse heill, Old Frisian hal, Middle Dutch hiel, Dutch heel, Old High German, German heil “salvation, welfare”), from PIE *kailo- “whole, uninjured, of good omen” (cognates: Old Church Slavonic celu “whole, complete;” see health). The spelling with wh- developed early 15c. The sense in whole number is from early 14c.

Whole milk is from 1782.

On the whole “considering all facts or circumstances” is from 1690s. For phrase whole hog, see hog (n.).

Whole (n.)

“Entire body or company; the full amount,” late 14c., from whole (adj.).

Whole cloth (n.)

Early 15c., “piece of cloth of full size,” as opposed to a piece cut out for a garment; figurative sense first attested 1570s.

Whole nine yards (n.)

By 1970, of unknown origin; perhaps arbitrary (see cloud nine).

Among the guesses that have been made without real evidence: concrete mixer trucks were said to have dispensed in this amount.

Or the yard might be the word used in the slang sense of “one hundred dollars.”

Several similar phrases meaning “everything” arose in the 1940s (whole ball of wax, which is likewise of obscure origin, whole schmear).

Older examples include whole hog (see hog (n.)) and whole shooting match (1896); whole shebang (1895).

Wholehearted (adj.)

Also whole-hearted, 1840, from whole (adj.) + hearted. Related: Wholeheartedly.

Wholeness (n.)

As a verb from 1800. Related: Wholesaling; wholesaler.

Wholesome (adj.)

c.1200, “of benefit to the soul,” from whole (adj.) in the “healthy” sense + -some.

Physical sense first attested late 14c. Related:

Wholesomely; wholesomeness. Old English had halwende.

Blowhole (n.)

Also blow-hole, 1787, of whales and porpoises, from blow (v.1) + hole.

Unwholesome (adj.)

c.1200, from un- (1) “not” + wholesome (adj.). Similar formation in Flemish onheylsaem, German unheilsam, Old Norse uheilsamr.

Was that as fun for you as it was for me?

American flag - 13 stars

In the beginning America encompassed 13 colonies, thus our first flag displayed 13 stars and 13 stripes.

American flag - 50 stars

Currently the American flag displays 50 stars, albeit as there is not enough room for 50 stripes, we still display thirteen.

Barack Obama by his actions and by his words so far during his tenure as America’s overlord has proven time and time again that he has absolutely no understanding of the word…

United States - graphic 1

According to Webster: “u·nit·ed,” adj.Combined into a single entity; together so as to form a whole.

Point of order; If anyone out there has Mr. Obama’s phone number, please call him and ask him to read my post today.

America needs a leader to bring it together as a…

America as a WHOLE

Not the “lead from behind” fellow we currently have, whose intentions and agenda, (in my opinion), are to leave America as a…

America as a HOLE

Which of course, is neither Christian nor American.

Christian America 1

This is Christian and American.

community organizer - graphic

Working to (strain) America into failure, is neither Christian nor American.

(Sidebar).

Before you start ranting and bellowing “Bigot” and “Racist,” take a moment to read Richard Cloward and Lloyd Ohlin’s socialist manifesto entitled; “The Strain Theory,” then grab yourself a copy of Saul Alinsky’s; “Rules for Radicals.”

Obama’s not only read both the aforementioned books, he lives by them.

For anyone without the resources to purchase those books, there is a treasure trove of material on all three men, check ‘em out on the net.

Continuing…

My parting note for today;

What Barack Obama and his socialist ilk don’t understand is that Christianity and capitalism work for working people, …

..and that nothing works for people that don’t work.

Question: What is terrorism?

According to Webster: “ter·ror·ism,” n. (in context) The use of violence by a person or a group to intimidate people, nations and governments for ideological or political purposes.

More simply put; …

terrorism 1a

At his inauguration, our 32nd President said it best.

America has nothing to fear, ..but fear itself.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt 1a  - gra

(Franklin Delano Roosevelt).

As spoken in his first inaugural speech; …

“This is preeminently the time to speak the truth, the whole truth, frankly and boldly. Nor need we shrink from honestly facing conditions in our country today.

This great Nation will endure as it has endured, will revive and will prosper.

So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself, – nameless, ..unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.

In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory.

First Inaugural Address, (4 March 1933)

The money changers have fled from their high seats in the temple of our civilization. We may now restore that temple to the ancient truths.

The measure of the restoration lies in the extent to which we apply social values more noble than mere monetary profit.

First Inaugural Address, (4 March 1933)

Happiness lies not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.

First Inaugural Address, (4 March 1933)

These dark days will be worth all they cost us if they teach us that our true destiny is not to be ministered unto but to minister to ourselves and to our fellow men.

First Inaugural Address, (4 March 1933)

If the country is to flourish, capital must be invested in enterprise. But those who seek to draw upon other people’s money must be wholly candid regarding the facts on which the investor’s judgment is asked.
