A Dumb Ol Coach

The Democrats are right, there are two Americas. The America that works, and the America that doesn’t. The America that contributes, and the America that doesn’t. It’s not the haves and the have nots, it’s the dos and the don’ts. Some people do their duty as Americans, obey the law, support themselves, contribute to society, and others don’t. That’s the divide in America.

It’s not about income inequality, it’s about civic irresponsibility. It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office. It’s about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country.

That’s not invective, that’s truth, and it’s about time someone said it.
The politics of envy was on proud display a couple weeks ago when President Obama pledged the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.” He noted that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher incomes than others, and he says that’s not just. That is the rationale of thievery.

The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you. Vote Democrat. That is the philosophy that produced Detroit !

It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America . It conceals a fundamental deviation from American values and common sense because it ends up not benefiting the people who support it, but a betrayal.

The Democrats have not empowered their followers, they have enslaved them in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victim-hood and anger instead of ability and hope. The president’s premise – that you reduce income inequality by debasing the successful–seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their choices and spare the unsuccessful the consequences of their choices. Because, by and large, income variations in society is a result of different choices leading to different consequences. Those who choose wisely and responsibly have a far greater likelihood of success, while those who choose foolishly and irresponsibly have a far greater likelihood of failure. Success and failure usually manifest themselves in personal and family income. You choose to drop out of high school or to skip college – and you are apt to have a different outcome than someone who gets a diploma and pushes on with purposeful education. You have your children out of wedlock and life is apt to take one course; you have them within a marriage and life is apt to take another course. Most often in life our destination is determined by the course we take.

My doctor, for example, makes far more than I do. There is significant income inequality between us. Our lives have had an inequality of outcome, but, our lives also have had an inequality of effort. While my doctor went to college and then devoted his young adulthood to medical school and residency, I got a job in a restaurant. He made a choice, I made a choice, and our choices led us to different outcomes. His outcome pays a lot better than mine. Does that mean he cheated and Barack Obama needs to take away his wealth? No, it means we are both free men in a free society where free choices lead to different outcomes.

It is not inequality Barack Obama intends to take away, it is freedom. The freedom to succeed, and the freedom to fail. There is no true option for success if there is no true option for failure. The pursuit of happiness means a whole lot less when you face the punitive hand of government if your pursuit brings you more happiness than the other guy. Even if the other guy sat on his arse and did nothing. Even if the other guy made a lifetime’s worth of asinine and short sighted decisions.

Barack Obama and the Democrats preach equality of outcome as a right, while completely ignoring inequality of effort.

The simple Law of the Harvest – as ye sow, so shall ye reap – is sometimes applied as, “The harder you work, the more you get.”
Obama would turn that upside down. Those who achieve are to be punished as enemies of society and those who fail are to be rewarded as wards of society. Entitlement will replace effort as the key to upward mobility in American society if Barack Obama gets his way. He seeks a lowest common denominator society in which the government besieges the successful and productive to foster equality through mediocrity. He and his party speak of two Americas , and their grip on power is based on using the votes of one to sap the productivity of the other. America is not divided by the differences in our outcomes, it is divided by the differences in our efforts.

It is a false philosophy to say one man’s success comes about unavoidably as the result of another man’s victimization.

What Obama offered was not a solution, but a separatism. He fomented division and strife, pitted one set of Americans against another for his own political benefit. That’s what socialists offer. Marxist class warfare wrapped up with a bow. Two Americas , coming closer each day to proving the truth to Lincoln’s maxim that a house divided against itself cannot stand.
“Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.”

Jimmy Carter to Headline Fundraiser for Hamas Front Group
Thursday, August 28, 2014 01:51 PM
By: John Blosser
Former President Jimmy Carter will headline a fundraising convention for Hamas, a group which has been recognized by the U.S. as a terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel.

Breitbart News reports that Carter, 89, long known as a supporter of Hamas in its struggle with Israel, will be welcomed this weekend to the Detroit event by members of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), implicated by the Justice Department in a scheme to funnel $12 million to Hamas.

Expected to speak at the meeting at Cobo Hall are unindicted co-conspirators Jamal Badawi, named in 2007 in the Holy Land Foundation Trial, and Siraj Wahhaj, listed for his involvement in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.
.
Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, head of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the U.S., and Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim member of Congress, also will speak.
Carter’s involvement may be in violation of the law, U.S. Code 2339B, Section 18, which makes it a crime for any U.S. citizen to provide material support to any group designated as a foreign terrorist organization.

Constitutional law expert Alan Dershowitz stressed that Carter’s actions, in raising funds for the ISNA, place him “very close, if not across the line,” of criminal behavior.

In a recent article in Foreign Policy, Carter accused Israel of “war crimes” and wrote that in order to end the Israel/Hamas conflict, Hamas must be recognized as a “legitimate political actor” in the Middle East.

“There is no humane or legal justification for the way the Israeli Defense Forces are conducting this war. Israeli bombs, missiles, and artillery have pulverized large parts of Gaza, including thousands of homes, schools, and hospitals. More than 250,000 people have been displaced from their homes in Gaza. Hundreds of Palestinian noncombatants have been killed. Much of Gaza has lost access to water and electricity completely. This is a humanitarian catastrophe.

“There is never an excuse for deliberate attacks on civilians in conflict. These are war crimes,” Carter wrote.

“The United States and EU should recognize that Hamas is not just a military but also a political force. Hamas cannot be wished away, nor will it cooperate in its own demise. Only by recognizing its legitimacy as a political actor – one that represents a substantial portion of the Palestinian people – can the West begin to provide the right incentives for Hamas to lay down its weapons.”

Carter’s position on Israel also is bringing political trouble to his grandson, Democrat Jason Carter, in his effort to unseat Georgia Republican Gov. Nathan Deal, while Georgia Republican Senate candidate David Perdue told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution he was “offended” by Carter’s comments.

“I have been on the front page of the paper talking about the ways in which I disagree with my grandfather. I believe that Israel has a right to defend itself, especially against Hamas’ terrorist actions,” Jason Carter said.

Does anyone remember Detective Melvin Santiago?  He was a Jersey City police officer who was shot to death just a month ago, on July 13th.   Santiago was white.  His killer, Lawrence Campbell, was black.  Does anyone recall Obama appearing before national television and calling for justice for Officer Santiago’s family?  Does anyone recall Eric Holder rushing to Jersey City to see that justice was done? How about Officer Jeffrey Westerfield.  He was a Gary, Indiana police officer who was shot to death last month on July 6th.  Westerfield was white.  His killer, Carl LeEllis Blount, Jr. was black.  Where was Obama?  Where was Holder? Or Officer Perry Renn?  He was an Indianapolis, Indiana police officer who was shot to death just last month on July 5th, the day before Officer Westerfield was killed.  Officer Renn was white.  His killer, Major Davis, was black.  I don’t recall any mention by Obama about the untimely death of Officer Renn.  And, I doubt that Eric Holder rushed to Indianapolis to make sure justice was done.  Or, maybe I just missed it. Vermillion Parish Deputy Sheriff Allen Bares was gunned down by two men just last June 23rd in Louisiana.  Deputy Bares was white.  His two killers, Quintlan Richard and Baylon Taylor, were black.  Was Obama outraged?  Did Eric Holder rush to Louisiana to make sure that the family of Deputy Bares found justice? Here in Texas, Detective Charles Dinwiddie of the Killeen Police Department was murdered by Marvin Lewis Guy, a black male.  Officer Dinwiddie was white.  This happened on May 11th, just over two months ago.  I don’t even recall seeing anything about that on the news.  Certainly, the white citizens in Killeen didn’t take to the streets to loot and burn businesses.  Again, I don’t recall any mention by Obama or Holder. Then, there is Officer Kevin Jordan of the Griffin, Georgia Police Department.  He was gunned down just two months ago on May 31st.  Officer Jordan was black.  His killer, Michael Bowman, was white.  This was a white man murdering a black police officer.  Where was Jesse Jackson?  Where was “The Reverend” Al Sharpton?  Was there looting and burning on the streets of Griffin, Georgia?  No.  In fact, I don’t recall hearing about this one in the news, as well.  Why?  You can draw your own conclusions. Over the past 60 days, there have been five reported deaths of police officers by gunshot in the US.  Of those, four were white officers who were murdered by black men.  Blacks complain that white officers threat black men more aggressively on the street.   You can draw your own conclusions on that one, as well.
