Understanding President Obama

For almost two years now, I have wondered why I find it impossible to understand President Barrack Obama or accept his vision for our country. Why do his actions seem so out of sync with the will of the majority and why does he exhibit such seeming disdain for America and our traditions? Why, for example, would he be the first newly inaugurated President to skip the Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball that, for 50 years, has recognized the living recipients of the Medal of Honor? And why would he choose to pass on the traditional Presidential visit to Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day in favor of a vacation trip to Chicago? Why would he decline to participate in the National Day of Prayer but attend Muslim prayer services on the capitol grounds? And why would he skip the 100th anniversary Boy Scout Jamboree and instead go to New York for a taping of “The View?“

Sociologists tell us that the one thing common to every society or social group is a “value system”, what Mosby’s Medical Dictionary defines as an “accepted mode of conduct and the set of norms, goals, and values ….. for determining what is right or wrong, good or bad, and desirable or undesirable …… .” These sociologists further tell us that value systems are generally developed between the ages of six and twelve. Most Americans spent those formative years in grade school learning the Pledge of Allegiance and being taught about our Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. We watched Gunsmoke on TV and John Wayne at the movies. We went to the Memorial Day parades and celebrated America’s independence with 4th of July fireworks. We learned the words to our National Anthem and believed that this truly was “the land of the free and the home of the brave.” These shared experiences helped form our national identity.

So where did Barrack Obama, born August 4, 1961, spend those formative years developing his value system? In Jakarta Indonesia, a country that is 90% Muslim. While you were learning the Pledge of Allegiance, he was learning the Koran. In July 1969, as America watched her astronauts walk on the moon, Barrack Obama was studying the Adhan, the Muslim call to prayer, which he has recently described as “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.” Perhaps this is why he found it so easy to abandon the Space Shuttle program and to state NASA’s new mission as building ties with the Muslim world. In 1967 as America watched LBJ support Israel during the Six Day War and confront Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin to stop the spread of communism during the Cold War, Obama watched General Suharto’s purges give rise to Islamic jihad in support of his “New Order.” While Americans saw the creation of the Civil Rights Act , Indonesia was establishing penal colonies and imprisoning dissidents.

The co-founder of the Jesuit Order, Saint Francis Xavier, said, “Give me the child until he is seven and I will give you the man” And, as teacher Jean Brodie said in “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie“, ‘Give me a girl at an impressionable age, and she is mine for life.” Perhaps the reason our current President seems so disconnected from America’s traditions and values is that, culturally, he is simply not one of us. This might explain his indifference to the seventy percent of Americans who oppose government health care and his stand on Arizona’s immigration laws. And it might explain his controversial comments on the Ground Zero Mosque and his knee-jerk reactions to the professor and the policeman, the Fort Hood shootings and the “underpants bomber.“ His value system is just vastly different from ours. And as more Americans discover that his value system simply doesn’t match theirs, his already spiraling approval ratings can only continue to sink lower and lower.

Why are we Afraid to Lead

We expect the President to face the world in his own way…in his own time…To follow him in the pursuit of each of our own American Dream… What is happening to our world… What will happen now that we have shown the world we dont have a leader that can lead this great nation and be the beacon for the world? Easy, …we turn back to God… In his hands we will never fail

We have yet to learn from our past errors

Over 35 years ago these words were spoken by one of our greatest leaders. We have not learned from our errors by empowering our federal government like we have.

” But I have an uncomfortable feeling that this prosperity isn’t something on which we can base our hopes for the future. No nation in history has ever survived a tax burden that reached a third of its national income. Today, 37 cents out of every dollar earned in this country is the tax collector’s share, and yet our government continues to spend 17 million dollars a day more than the government takes in. We haven’t balanced our budget 28 out of the last 34 years. We’ve raised our debt limit three times in the last twelve months, and now our national debt is one and a half times bigger than all the combined debts of all the nations of the world. We have 15 billion dollars in gold in our treasury; we don’t own an ounce. Foreign dollar claims are 27.3 billion dollars. And we’ve just had announced that the dollar of 1939 will now purchase 45 cents in its total value. “

9/11 was not a Tragedy; it was a Deliberate Act of War

Filed under: Constitution,Freedom,God Bless America,Liberty — John Vojtush @ 1:12 am

The word “tragedy” implies that there was no intent behind the attacks. In the current parlance of our over educated elites who seek to absolve blame from all perpetrators of the most heinous acts and spread it to society, or some nebulous segment thereof, it is no wonder our sense of unity on 9/11/01 has been lost in the last decade.

Those who yearn for that lost sense of unity have forgotten the price by which that unity was bought. At least on that day eleven years ago, there was no question in anyone’s mind who our enemy was or what had happened.

Our First Lady, Mrs Obama said during the 2008 election while campaigning for her husband, that for the first time in her life she was proud to be an American in knowing that her husband could be president.

I didnt have the honor of welcoming back the soldiers who fought for the worlds freedom after World War I & II. Nor the soldiers from the Korean or Vietnam Wars. Nor soldiers who stared down the Iron Curtain. I have had the honor of being part of a family that has had over 35 members fight and die for our country. I have had the honor of shaking hands with friends who became soldiers and fought in the 1st Persian Gulf war. I have had the opportunity to shake hands with soldiers who have fought to liberate Iraq & Afghanistan during the last 10 years. Those are days that make me proud.

While i have looked at each of these as an honor I will never forget, I think the day i would be the most proud to be an American would be the day I could shake President Bushs’ hand for doing the one things he is commanded to do by our Constitution; protect our freedom and the hands of every Fireman, Policeman and others who climbed the towers to save others when they knew they would never come out.

Leading and sacrificing is what is expected of us as Americans. Sacrificing what we have for freedom with honor. Not just our freedom, but the freedom for those that cant fight for themselves.

Our memory of 9-11-2001 should be remembered as the day that our country forever changed. We were attacked on our soil for the first and what I believe will be the last time. We are at war with a culture that looks at our freedom and rights to happiness and prosperity as evil. That war with freedom and prosperity has now bled into our society.

Today I ask that you read our Declaration of Independence & Constitution to be reminded of what our founders once fought for and aspired for us; our individual freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Building to a more perfect union.

We are war. The events of 9-11-2001 need to be a continual reminder of the war we wage each day. Not over land nor resources. But freedom. Just as 12-7-1941 was. Dont ever let your guard down. Dont let those that want power they have no right to take it nor anyone who doesnt believe in freedom with every ounce of their being.

Free Medical Care with satisified patients and No Impact to our Financial Future

We demonize all those involved in the medical care profession; too expensive, not caring, too much waste, too long of a wait, and poor judgment.

The medical profession recently showed us they are not the villian nor does the government need to be involved to take care of those that cant afford insurance.

How can we build off of this success nationwide and not plow our county further into debt?

CLEVELAND, Ohio — The national health-care crisis had hundreds of faces Saturday and one destination: a modest high-rise in University Circle where hundreds of medical and lay volunteers provided free care to nearly a thousand Ohioans who lacked health insurance.

“You should have had Obama here today. This is what he should see,” said Dr. Donald Hricik, a University Hospitals specialist in nephrology and hypertension.

What the president would have seen Saturday was a mass of people in need who began showing up at 5 a.m. at the W.O. Walker Center, a complex jointly operated by the Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals.

Three of the floors were taken over by the MedWorks project, which Cleveland Heights banker Zak Ponsky has been planning and organizing for at least a year.

What’s the Meaning of ‘Freedom’?….Dont ask a Politician

“[M]an is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
- Ronald Reagan

We’ve all heard the words democracy and freedom used countless times, especially in the context of our invasion of Iraq. They are used interchangeably in modern political discourse, yet their true meanings are very different.

George Orwell wrote about “meaningless words” that are endlessly repeated in the political arena. Words like “freedom,” “democracy,” and “justice,” Orwell explained, have been abused so long that their original meanings have been eviscerated. In Orwell’s view, political words are “often used in a consciously dishonest way.” Without precise meanings behind words, politicians and elites can obscure reality and condition people to reflexively associate certain words with positive or negative perceptions. In other words, unpleasant facts can be hidden behind purposely meaningless language. As a result, Americans have been conditioned to accept the word “democracy” as a synonym for freedom, and thus to believe that democracy is unquestionably good.

The problem is that democracy is not freedom. Read More

If you want to be free, there is but one way; it is to guarantee an equally full measure of liberty to all your neighbors. There is no other.
