Don’t belittle people PDF Print E-mail

Dear Editor:

Some recent letters to the News-Review, no doubt authored by persons of the conservative persuasion, belittle people seen as non-taxpaying idlers — dare we say “47 percenters?” — who rely on “gifts” from the government. Who are these so-called parasites?

— Millions of working-class citizens who have seen their means of employment outsourced to places overseas or who have suffered the indignity of losing their livelihood through downsizing;

— Many workers forced to accept large reductions in hours, cuts in wages or benefits who were given almost no choice but to labor in dead-end minimum wage jobs which could not be exported;

— While a small percentage of individuals get away with abusing the system, consider giant corporations, called “persons” by the Supremes, such as GE, DuPont and Boeing who paid no taxes on billions of dollars of income in addition to pocketing generous government subsidies such as those granted to oil and gas outfits; and

— Finally, consider too those who lost what they thought was financial security through Wall Street shenanigans and must live almost exclusively on Social Security, as well as so many of our veterans who rely on government assistance.

If you are not one of these and other victims of our corporate culture, why not just be thankful and join the people who refrain from disparaging other peoples’ character and motives?

Start:

University of Wisconsin mentioned in the national publication below:

I wonder how many old-fashioned Democrats who are under the spell and deception of today’s liberal/socialist Democrat Party, are aware even in the slightest that their children or grandchildren could be victimized by Goal #26 (just one of many) of the communist agenda laid out in Cleon Skousen’s 1958 blockbuster The Naked Communist, and outlined in the documentary “Agenda” linked in post #2?

#26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

From the Hillsdale College jaw-dropping “Imprimus” cover commentary:

“There is clearly a radical sexual agenda at work at Yale today. Professors and administrators who came of age during the sexual revolution are busily indoctrinating students into a culture of promiscuity."

Continued:

“In fact, Yale pioneered the hosting of a campus “Sex Week”—a festival of sleaze, porn, and debauchery, dressed up as sex education. I encountered this tawdry tradition as an undergrad, and my book documents the events of Sex Week, including the screening in classrooms of hard-core pornography and the giving of permission to sex toy manufacturers and porn production companies to market their products to students.”

“Unfortunately, what’s happening at Yale is indicative of what is occurring at colleges and universities across the country. Sex Week, for example, is being replicated at Harvard, Brown, Duke, Northwestern, the University of Illinois, and the University of Wisconsin.”

Continued:

And from the The Chronicle of Higher Education:

“Sex-toy raffles and giveaways? Workshops featuring graphic, violent pornography and simulated sex techniques? Teaching about polyamory but not about monogamy or abstinence? All those events have transpired recently on campuses across the country—perhaps unbeknownst to many parents.”

(Check out the comments below the article from the already-indoctrinated)

End.

Isn’t it ironic that those who speak out over bona fide freeloaders being castigated by conservatives for the parasitic life they choose (not the honest victims of circumstance Jack claims conservatives include), are the same people complicit in the genocide of 55 million lives simply by way of their silence and vote?

So, “Happy 40th Anniversary ‘Baby’” to Roe v. Wade

This charismatic dead ringer could just as well be Barack Obama, since I assume someone who couldn’t care less about the 1.2 million babies exterminated each year, including the mutilation of 12,000 viable late-terms, would act similarly to this clown.

The all-important factor that’s confirmed by the just-released video, is that this is the true character of the base in the current liberal/socialist Democrat Party in all of its naked glory.

Congratulations , Democrats, you deserve to be belittled.

It is a rare occasion when the American people have the opportunity to come together on one special day to recognize their nation’s icons in the way they see fit.

So on:

Martin Luther King Jr’s Birthday – The Great Uniter

Inauguration Day 2013 – The Great Divider

40th Anniversary Celebration of Roe v. Wade – The Great Destroyer

I am linking The Great Documentary that some have suggested renaming: “While You Were Asleep,” “Getting to Know You,” or “Subversion for Dummies.”

And don’t forget: One person’s tears of sorrow are another person’s tears of joy.

Jack,

You’re working for the wrong side.

In today’s hypocritical charade, you’ll see the reincarnation of Saul Alinsky in the body of your president “holding a gun at the head of the American people” emotionally surrounded by props; the same type of props that he would allow to be aborted by “any” procedure and at “any” stage of development.

It’s time to change sides. I’ll even buy you the white hat.
