The Fifth Of July!

It is my understanding that the 5th of July is being declared a holiday this year. Maybe it’s just me, but I thought all holidays were a symbolic remembrance of a sacred event, time, or belief, and the only thing we have to grasp on to in order to immortalize the occurrence is the day in time that symbolizes the sacred memories or beliefs!

Too many Americans view holidays as “A DAY I DON’T HAVE TO GO TO WORK DAY,” PERIOD! This thinking is screwed up on many levels. If our thinking were in proper perspective, we would still be worshiping the ability to work and the gift of a job that was earned through incredible sacrifice.

So when a holiday falls on a weekend, the fact that our society has brainwashed itself into declaring a national “stay home from work day” on a weekday is tragic! Where is the logic in this?  We have gone absolutely mad!!

Maybe I have this all backwards, but the idea is to observe the holiday, the meaning, the symbolic meaning of the day of the event, or deep religious belief, and you can do that just wonderfully on Saturday or Sunday and still make it to work on Monday to celebrate your sacred gift of a job!

I would like to know how many of you liberally tended thinkers that get pissed at your boss for making you work on the weekday following a holiday actually observe the meaning of the holiday on that work day off!

If it really was all about the meaning of the holiday, I might take another approach to this, but I know damn well we live in a lazy-ass time when people don’t worship their jobs nearly enough, even in this market, and just want another excuse to bar-B-Q and drink.

Too many Americans have been living it up on the coattails of the profound success of those who sacrificed for this taken-for-granted way of life we have had in America. They have become leaches of society, guilty of poisoning America by doing NOTHING! By failing to stay informed as to how we achieved this way of life, failing to appreciate this way of life, and failing to stay engaged in order to preserve this way of life.

So while great historical occurrences may have occurred on the 5th of July, the sacred symbol of Independence Day we have come to recognize is on the 4th of July. So I say, stay home and celebrate the 4th of July on the 4th of July and work your ass off on the 5th of July, celebrating your hard-earned gift of a job, if you still have one!

Strenghth Then Medicate

I can’t help but have an opinion on kids that are so easily medicated these days. Now, I’m not saying if some of these kids were mine I wouldn’t medicate too. I’m not the strongest guy around. I do have kids and luckily I have not had to even think of medication. The Jack Daniels works fine (a little humor). I do say, from what I have seen, these kids, in many cases, have more ability in there somewhere to control it than they are pushed to use.

I’m sure glad we live in a time where our advancements have made drugs available for nearly everything, but it becomes difficult to distinguish a need from a cop-out. I’m not saying people should generally suffer or struggle when there is something that will make it easier, but one thing that is missing these days is the will to be as strong as you can first.

We teach our kids from day one that there is a pain pill for nearly everything they will ever encounter in life, and just exposing your kids to life’s pain, suffering, and smut, as liberals tout, prepares kids for tough times (because it’s easier than being a role model) does not make them strong! Life is a rugged road. You want people to be dedicated to being as strong as possible, and once they accomplish that, you know they are only popping the pills of life because they really need ’em.

I’m only saying people who wish to avoid the easy way out may actually be better prepared for life than those who always take the path of least resistance.

I was just talking to my wife and we pondered the concept that some of these so-called diseases kids have such as ADHD, ADD, etc. really should not be called a disease at all. I do understand the issues are REAL problems, so don’t misunderstand, but calling them a disease as they do, or even a disorder just somehow doesn’t sit right with me.

We all have different tendencies based on our personalities which I believe is based on our chemical makeup and a zillion other biological combinations.  Some characteristics are extreme and cause extreme behavior, but I don’t think that necessarily constitutes a disease. A problem yes, but a disease? Hell, if we are going to call those extreme personalities a disease, then seriously confused Liberals are as sick as dogs! Why isn’t extreme happiness a disease? Incessantly happy people are annoying as hell right? Why no pill for them? Actually most kids in so-called need of pills are incessantly happy. Lots of energy comes with happiness.

I am being extreme in my thinking to make just a tiny point. I do thank God for our world’ and our Forefathers for Conservatism, our heroic warriors for defeating leftist thinking and achieving the most prosperous, generous nation of freedom, liberty, and capitalism, and finally, I thank the heart and soul that has gone into most of our capitalism that has led to the development of the medications available to us today! We all need to push ourselves and our children to be strong individuals and to not let our strengths atrophy (rot) because we don’t use ’em anymore.

Cowering In The Middle

I just had a heated discussion with an old friend. He is a great guy, but the stuff that came out of him devastates me! First of all, he is devoted to not taking a side. He thinks not taking a side is somehow morally superior. He insists that an hour of Fox News and an hour of CNN is balance! He is dedicated to the notion, as so many are, that all news and politicians are corrupt. This accomplishes NOTHING! We have a duty to pay closer attention because something as HUGE as U.S. or even global politics cannot properly and accurately be deciphered by listening to a few sound bites or people.

If you’re lucky, you know at least what your principles are. Far too many people do not. They only know that their life isn’t the way they want it and people are suffering. If you do know what your principles are, and you are clear on the philosophy of what you believe, that’s great, but you have one more HUGE duty to tackle. We must properly decipher what politicians DO, not what they say, and align yourself with the party that most reflects your philosophies.

It is not noble to avoid participation because you can’t find a party that is a mirror of your brain. I will say, if you understand conservatism, it is a perfect blueprint. Yes, there are undesirable solutions to difficult problems, but if you are devoted to nobility as outlined by God, the noble solutions to many situations are undesirable, but nonetheless, proper, noble, and necessary and they are all covered in the blueprint that is conservatism. On the other hand, if you are devoted to liberalism, it also is a perfect blueprint. Liberalism is the antithesis of conservatism and our country’s founding, and when practiced to its fullest as a nation, it will serve as the constitution for communism.

Americans’ political beliefs are an absolute mess right now. If we really had a situation where every voter knew what they believed in and made an educated decision to support the left or right, that would be healthy, but that is a far cry from what goes on. Elections are being determined by voters who are guessing, based on a vibe, a feeling, a hunch that usually came from propagandized news scraps that have traveled from person to person. These people are grasping a political position based on the same emotion that determines their favorite color.

The only people listening to BOTH SIDES are people who DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY BELIEVE! So I say learn, figure out what you believe, pick a damn side, and listen to the people who are most in line with your beliefs and, whether on the left or right, participate!

A watered-down concept is not a master plan for anything! No one ever broke a record playing both sides. No one has ever achieved greatness by being moderate. Greatness is achieved by figuring something out and running with it!

Conservatism is greatness. You can thank those who have heroically devoted themselves to conservatism from the time of our country’s founding for ALL the greatness our nation has ever achieved. Conservatism has created a nation worthy of ruin.

We all know liberalism is conservative Kryptonite. No one is looking to destroy Lex Luthor, but Superman is a target by many. No one is looking to tear down a third-world country, but dammit, realize that there is a political force of liberalism working to tear down Superman! (I mean the U.S. for those of you in Rio Linda, to quote a great guy:)!

I believe most who denounce conservatism don’t really know what it is. Even most of your left-wing wackos practice some conservatism every day and don’t know it! It’s a little bit like breathing air. We are living in conservative remains, and everything you do in a day’s time that is not communistic is, at the very least, a watered-down fragment of conservatism or capitalism. To put it another way, it’s nearly impossible to live in America and not benefit from conservatism. Even our ability to pay welfare is the result of conservatism!

Finally, the middle is being on both sides. The middle has a little conservatism and a little communism and a bunch of NOTHING or it wouldn’t be the middle! There is good and bad. If you are in the middle, you support a little of both.

Liberalism Is Arrogant..

I say liberalism is arrogant but what I really mean is you can’t exercise liberalism without arrogant and condescending behavior. The reason is very simple. Liberalism is “void of truth, substance and accuracy”! When you don’t have substance, the only thing you do have, is your delivery, Your tone, your vocabulary, and your appearance. All of which wows some but accomplishes NOTHING!

Just imagine you have no substance and or logic to your argument but you still need to persuade.  How can you do it without substance and logic on your side. The only way to persuade when substance is not on your side is through symbolism. You must use the visual of your presentation, your vocabulary and tone in your verbal delivery. Further, and this is very important, you must NEVER solve a problem! You must always keep your focus on the problems that exist and NEVER put forth logical solutions. Solutions actually solve problems and without problems to capitalize on there would be no liberalism because liberalism is about having problems not getting rid of problems.

I believe it comes from that area of human behavior, where too many tap into that mindset that has an absence of will power,  belief in ones self and individual capability in general. Colossal Ignorance might just some up the liberal followers. The liberal leaders however are far more deliberate and in fact evil in many cases if you really want to get into it but that can be a whole other article.

The liberal argument must choose subject matter everyone cares about and is in need of improvement. It must accuse and move on before any defense can be made and COMPLETELY IGNORE any defense that does come through as the collision of logic and emotion is like oil and water!

The liberal must gain their credibility through contrived passion. To take it a step further, no liberal passion can be genuine. It may be real but it’s never genuine. It is contrived because it is based on beliefs that do not contain the support of logic. Logic is the substance. Remember, the origin of liberal passion comes from emotion not logic.

I am convinced that whenever good and evil battle and start out on an equal footing that good will usually if not always triumph as the passion of righteousness is on the side of good. The side with the genuine passion will always prevail.

You might be feeling cleaver at this point thinking you have stumbled on some irony as this article may sound arrogant in itself. It might sound that way however, I always say that its not arrogance if its true. If it’s true lets call it confidence.  The very word arrogant comes across as somewhat of a paradox to me. Arrogance by definition is basically a lack of confidence if you really dig into it yet it is perceived as over confidence. It can’t be over confidence if it’s not about having real confidence in the first place. In other words in my opinion, all arrogant people are experiencing a shortage of confidence or they would not have to be arrogant.
