BHO: Excerpt from John Eidson’s piece “Barack Obama: A Traitor for the Ages” at American Thinker – “Five days before he was first elected, Obama made a statement that attracted little attention at the time, vowing to ‘fundamentally transform the United States of America.’ Caught up in the euphoria of Hope and Change, many who voted for him never thought to ask themselves, Transform it into what? A long trail of compelling evidence leads to the unavoidable conclusion that his strategy from the beginning has been to carefully conceal his true ideology, while quietly working to transform America into a communist society, a total betrayal of the oath he took to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, including the hammer and sickle. Without cover from the corrupt mainstream media, he would never have been elected. Is Obama a traitor for the ages? You decide.”
Those who voted for him either knew this and wanted it or else were blinded by Obama’s skin color, while those of us who knew all this and were appalled by Obama’s character were labeled “racists.”
EDUCATION: Video [:31] – In other “public education sucks” news, a group of Wisconsin parents is suing the Madison School District over its pro-trans policies intended to affirm each student’s self-designated gender identity and “disrupt the gender binary” with books and lessons stating that everyone has the right to choose their gender.
“Madison schools have adopted policies that violate constitutionally recognized parental rights. A public school district should not, and cannot, make decisions reserved for parents,” said Rick Esenberg, president of the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty (WILL), which is representing the parents.
JOHN RHYS-DAVIES: “Christian civilization has made the world a better place than it ever was. …
“One of the great glories” of Christianity was the abolition of slavery. There is still slavery and that makes me very mad.
“But all the things that we value, the right of free speech, the right of the individual conscience, these evolved in first and second century Roman Christendom, where the individual Christian said, ‘I have a right to believe what I believe and not what the Emperor tells me.
“From that our whole idea of democracy and the equality that we have has developed.
“We owe Christianity the greatest debt of thanks that a generation can ever have, and to slight it and to dismiss it as being irrelevant is the detritus of rather ill-read minds.”
UK: Starting in April, non-critical patients deemed to be “racist” or “sexist” or “homophobic” will be denied care in NHS Trust hospitals. Police will also be given new powers to prosecute “hate crimes” committed against NHS staff.
I remember when it was a considered a noble thing for a health care worker to treat anyone without regard for his/her race, color, creed, gender, or politics.
Plus, you know, tough noogies for any Tourette’s sufferers who break a bone or need stitches.
GRAMMY NOTES: My Dearest got tapped to be one of the Republican candidates for the upcoming village board election. I’m not sure how much of an honor it is. He said there were only four people at the caucus, including him. Two said absolutely not (they’re already on the school board), so he and the other fellow said, fine then, we’ll do it.
I only had two questions. What are you giving up to make time? And do you think you can make a difference? He had a good list for the first and a self-deprecating I have a different perspective than the others for the second. I refrained from mentioning that he tends to go to the meetings anyway, so maybe if he gets elected, I’ll actually see him a little more often. 🙂
