Excuse Me, But Isn’t That Discrimination?

sanctuarycities.jpg

All the talk about sanctuary cities has caused me to dream about the problem. Last night, in a particularly unexciting dream, it occurred to me that two things bother me about sanctuary cities. One is a very obstinate refusal of our governments to adhere to the laws, thereby making a mockery of our claim that we are a nation of laws. The second is also an hypocrisy regarding our so-called dream of living in a fair world of diversity.  Doesn’t the idea of allowing a segment of people living in America with special privileges smack of discrimination? Haven’t we as a nation fought extra hard to eliminate discrimination? Yet, here we are allowing special cases to be fostered, and expanded as though it was a human right.

How long will it be before we allow gangs to have sanctuary in the same cities? Or, when will we grant special privileges to Syrian refugees? We already grant extra special privileges to Muslims all around the country, like ‘no-go zones,” or prayer rooms. Each of these examples is a form of discrimination, either against the resident culture, or for the special needs of a religion or sect. Laws on abortion, and birth control are also discriminatory.

Another scary example comes to mind inside the prison population. We grant special treatment such as free medical care, sex change operations, and much more to prisoners, yet we discriminate against normal people trying to eke out a living in an honest manner.

If new are to live up to the ideals we so proudly proclaim in our pledge, our Constitution and our anthem we must bite the bullet, and abandon special privileges like sanctuary cities.

Do You Trust Pit Bulls or Muslims?

Today the light bulb turned on above my head and a new idea entered. Only God knows where this came from or why, but here it is for what it is worth. Most of us know that pit bulls are a strange breed of dog that have a terrible reputation for being aggressive. How, I wondered do they get this way and what provokes them? An instant later the same idea morphed toward Muslims. How do these people suddenly become violent radicals?

In the case of the pit bull there are experts who studied the problem and listed the reasons for the dog’s behavior. First let me support this premise by citing a statistic: From 2003 to 2015, or over  8 years, there have been on average of 22 deaths per year from pit bull attacks. One estimate puts the pit bull population in the USA at 5.3 million. That makes 22 deaths per year an awfully small percentage, and the pit bull supporters are quick to spell out that Rottweilers have higher percentage of kills than the pit bull.

Here are ten reasons why pit bulls have problems:

  1. poor breeding
  2. medical problems
  3. lack of socialization
  4. abuse
  5. territorial
  6. pack oriented
  7. predatory instincts
  8. mood state
  9. social agression
  10. lack of training.

I then dug into the reasons why Muslims radicalize and here are some of the reasons they do:

  1. they don’t have parents
  2.  traumatized
  3. demoralized
  4. damaged psyche

It might be just me but there is a line of similarity between the two. In the case of the muslims the ISIS recruiter plays on these weaknesses. In the case of the pit bull the owner uses the traits to make the dog ferocious.

These are all interesting facts and I enjoyed reading about them, but I don’t want to pretend to be an expert on either. My point is that there are a lot of Muslims in the world as there are pit bulls. For too many reasons both can trigger to become violent. The question is how do we determine which is the one?

In the case of the pit bull, most of the triggers are owner induced like poor training, health, abuse, training. In the case of the Muslim it is also human induced. A lack of parents? Trauma? Demoralization? Damaged psyche? Who are these humans? My guess is they are Muslims, parents, relatives, and Muslim society. Where else do these people grow up? Where else do they get demoralized? Who damages a psyche, but a parent, caretaker, friend, imam, or teacher? behead.jpg

Since most Muslims grow up in Muslim communities the seeds of radicalization are sowed by the peace loving souls who live there.

What is the best way to control radicalization? First control the muslims entering the country. Limit immigration to those who are non-muslim. This is not a violation of the First Amendment since Islam is not a religion it is a political ideology. Second, shut down all mosques within the USA. These are not the equal of churches. They promote the over throw of the government by teaching hate for all non-muslims. We have laws prohibiting discrimination. The government has spent millions prosecuting people who discriminate against race, and hate speech. Mosques are promoters of religious discrimination and use hate speech as their vehicle. Muslims violate our First Amendment rights of freedom of religion by persecuting non-muslims, and they deprive us of our civil rights by discriminating against us, and as such must be prosecuted for doing so.

I’m Not Buyin’ It

Today, Peg and I watched a very powerful film “12 Years A Slave.” We now understand why it received the Best Picture Award. The reason it is so good is because it is a true story, and is the personal account of a man who experienced slavery in the good old USA. We weren’t shocked by the content, nor the cruelty because both of us watched movies like “Roots,” and “Amistad.” We also paid attention in school when studying history. I admit, however, that the cruelty aspect in 12 Years is much more graphic and convincing than that in Roots.

Last week we saw “Son of God” and the cruelty shown to Jesus was similar if not more so. One difference is that Jesus experienced one scourging in his life, slave-owners whipped their property often. There is no doubt in my mind that slavery is evil. It is finally illegal to own slaves in any country of the world, yet there are purportedly twenty-nine million slaves in existence worldwide today.

What made this film more interesting is that main character Solomon Northrup was born a free man in Saratoga, New York. That made him a citizen of the USA. He didn’t get captured by mercenary traders in a foreign country and shipped across an ocean to a strange new land and sold. Kidnappers took Solomon and sold him into slavery in Washington D.C. He learned quickly not to ever mention his background to anyone for fear of a brutal beating.

Most white slave owners were evil. There is no better way to describe them, they acted like the devil. Even those who were compassionate were evil because they believed that owning  human beings as property was their legal right. Many saw slaves as animals not humans. I salute the millions of slaves who have endured the loss of liberty and cruel treatment they received. This is the point where I will infuriate all blacks living in America. I’m not buying into the storyline that I should feel sorry for every living American black because his great, great, great, grandfather uncle aunt, etc. was a slave. The slaves were the ones who paid the price, not you. You are free since 1865 and since 1970’s the US government has spent trillions to end poverty and for discrimination you have suffered under whitey. If you divide the money spent by every black in America since the Emancipation Proclamation you would all be very wealthy.

What have you done to make your slave ancestors proud? What is their legacy? How do you honor the cruelty and indignity they suffered? Is it they who have made you more dependent on Uncle Sam? Did Solomon Northrup and his friends organize you into gangs? Did he also corrupt your morals to commit genocide on your own progeny? What have you done for yourselves to convince us to drop the need to discriminate against you? Forgive me, but I do discriminate against gang-thugs, and people who play the welfare system to the max. I welcome my neighbors, and friends who share in the goodness of America.

It pleases me if Hollywood made this film to entertain. It pleases me if  they made it to educate us about the life of an extraordinary man. If they made it to send a message that you are a victim of a government gone wild, it is okay. If Hollywood produced this story to eradicate world slavery through awareness, I am pleased.

The problem is that I don’t think Hollywood made the film for those reasons.  I think they made it because they are pushing the political agenda of equal outcomes for all policy of communism, and I am not buying it.

Instead of Hollywood producers, directors, actors, and American Blacks converting America into a socialist state, where everyone belongs to the government, they should focus their efforts on freeing the twenty-nine million slaves in the world who still endure the cruelty, hardship, and loss of liberty.

A Patriot’s Point of View

     I love the internet! My friends send me stuff all day long. It saves me endless hours of surfing on my own. I just open my e-mail and there it is. Most of the time we trade jokes, cartoons, and letters of rage. Today, I received a copy of a letter that has been circulating for a few months. The letter to President Obama is written by a veteran of World War Two . He is ninety-five years old, and is he upset. Harold is upset about the change that is going on.The sender verified it on Snopes, but having been duped into believing too many erroneous articles, I checked it out on Snopes myself. The letter is correctly attributed to Harold Estes.Please read this patriot’s letter and comment on his point of view.

 

Dear President Obama,                   My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year.  People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate.  Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor , allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.So here goes.

I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.

I can’t figure out what country you are the president of.

You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:

             ” We’re no longer a Christian nation”

             ” America is arrogant” – (Your wife even

                 announced to the world,” America is mean-

                 spirited. ” Please tell her to try preaching

                 that nonsense to 23 generations of our

                 war dead buried all over the globe who

                 died for no other reason than to free a

                 whole lot of strangers from tyranny and

                 hopelessness.)

I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you.  To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.”

Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British?  Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War?  I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.

I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination.  You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.

Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.

Shape up and start acting like an American.  If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue .  You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts , who was putting up a fight?  You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.

One more thing.  I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son.  Do your job.  When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him.  But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out.  The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.

You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president. 

You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy.  That’s not our greatest threat.  Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.

And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle…

Sincerely,

Harold B. Estes

Beware Fat Man

Dr Consults with Federal Obamacare for Direction Last week, a friend of mine went to see a doctor at Saint James Hospital. Without getting into the specifics of why he was there, I will tell his story. The man is very tall, perhaps six foot four or taller. He is a big guy. He weighs in at two-ninety or more. When I look at him he doesn’t appear to be obese, but he is a big guy. 

To make this story very short, his doctor, a black lady, told him he was too fat to treat. She told him to go find another doctor. Is this a case of racial discrimination, or obesity discrimination? Clearly it is a violation of the Hippocratic oath. I thought doctors were supposed to do no harm in their treatment. This doctor clearly caused mental stress with her non-treatment.  

I know the latest rant on the news is about obesity in America, but is this the way obese people are going to be treated? If they are, I think the doctors of America will go onto the list of poverty stricken because their income comes from the obese.  Yes, there are lots of skinny people who are sick with disease, but I bet they are out numbered.

Be prepared to file discrimination suits against your family doctor if this attitude prevails.
