Freedom Ain’t Free & Take Our Country Back

VICTORY Is Not Defeat

Islamic Revolution: Undesirable Change!


An egg farmer went to his hen house, to the nest of his best layer, and discovered that instead of an egg, the nest contained a quarter, a dime, a nickel and a few pennies. He took the change and the chicken to the vet and told his tale. The vet answered ” Its not a big deal, she’s just going through her change.”.

Not all change is improvement. Our elected leaders need to learn the difference between the two concepts, they are not identical.  Replacing one tyrant with another does not solve the problem of tyranny.  Replacing a monarch with an autocrat is not an improvement.  Replacing the Mubarak regime with the Muslim Brotherhood will not improve the lot of the mill run of Egyptians.   What good did replacing the Shah with an Ayatollah do for Iranians?

Rioting peaks on Friday afternoons. That is not a coincidence; the riots result from the sermons preached at Jumah Salat. It is an Islamic movement, not a democratic movement.

If the believers succeed in overthrowing Mubarak & Hussain, there will be consequences. The peace treaties with Israel will be abrogated and a new war will result in the near term future, likely resulting in widespread death and destruction.  The economies of Egypt & Jordan will decline, resulting in starvation for many on the lowest rungs of the economic ladder.

If those revolts succeed, more will follow against other regimes. The price of oil will escalate, resulting in damage to our economy. It is a matter of momentum.  If the rioters think they can get away with it; if Mubarak does not use sufficient force to quell them, then all is lost. If he cracks down, his regime will lose face. If not, he will lose his sinecure.

Shutting off the internet and cell phone communication is vitally necessary to interrupting the revolution’s command, control, coordination & intelligence functions. To us, it appears to be an outrage. To the regime, it is a basic necessity for survival.

To Muslims, success is a function of obedient submission to Allah in all details. They perceive failure & suffering to be the fruits of disobedience to Allah. Reimposing strict enforcement of Shari’ah is their proposed solution.  The Qur’an & sunnah condemn revolution against a just ruler who enforces Shari’ah.  To rationalize revolt, they must commit takfir, declaring the regime to be un-Islamic.  Nothing good can come of this in the short run.

Obamination: State of the Union: Illegal Immigration?


In this installment on the STOTU we turn to Immigration issues.  [Click this link for the Prepared Remarks.]

“Now, I strongly believe that we should take on, once and for all, the issue of illegal immigration. I am prepared to work with Republicans and Democrats to protect our borders, enforce our laws and address the millions of undocumented workers who are now living in the shadows. I know that debate will be difficult and take time. But tonight, let’s agree to make that effort. And let’s stop expelling talented, responsible young people who can staff our research labs, start new businesses, and further enrich this nation.”

Didn’t we say NO already Didn’t we repeat it loudly and clearly?  And when they tried to ram the “DREAM Act” down our throats we shouted our refusal to accept it.  Obamination will not accept a negative answer any more than Shrub did.

Obamination won’t even complete the fence, which drug lords are using a catapault to overcome.  Mexicans are not the only wet backs. Numerous Muslim terrorists are mingling with them but Obamination does not give a damn.  He has his Secret Service to protect himself, the rest of us don’t matter to him.

Illegal immigrants are more likely to organize gangs of street thugs and found Meth labs than to engage in scientific research or found legitimate enterprises. Masses of illegal immigrants are threatening the financial viability of our schools and hospitals.

We need to say it again, to repeat it with higher volume and increased profanity.  We must make the newly elected and installed majority in the House of Representatives fully aware of our absolute, principled and permanent objection to alien amnesty schemes.  Send this link to your Congressman:

LOUD & CLEAR.  

You can easily send an email to your Representative through the handy form provided by http://www.congress.org.  To create the link,  copy and paste this html code  exactly as it appears here:  <a href=”https://snooper.wordpress.com/no-amnesty/#Loud”>Loud & Clear</a>.

Obamination: State of the Union: Education?


In this installment on the STOTU we turn to education issues.  [Click this link for the Prepared Remarks.]

” Maintaining our leadership in research and technology is crucial to America’s success. But if we want to win the future – if we want innovation to produce jobs in America and not overseas – then we also have to win the race to educate our kids.”

Race?  Who are we competing against in a speed contest to educate our kids?  Are the Chinese, Russians and Arabs racing to educate our kids?  Has technological innovation created jobs or eliminated them?   Where are cell phones manufactured?   Is the rest of the world educating their children in ten years instead of twelve?

” Think about it. Over the next ten years, nearly half of all new jobs will require education that goes beyond a high school degree. And yet, as many as a quarter of our students aren’t even finishing high school. The quality of our math and science education lags behind many other nations.  America has fallen to 9th in the proportion of young people with a college degree. And so the question is whether all of us – as citizens, and as parents – are willing to do what’s necessary to give every child a chance to succeed.”

Where did that statistic about the educational requirement of new jobs come from?  Is there any truth in it?  How does President Obama know what the new jobs are going to be or what level of education they will require?

About those drop outs: are they among the best & brightest or are they from the ranks of the less endowed intellectually?  Why did they drop out? Frustration with inability to learn, boredom, harassment, and bullying & violence in the schools are a few of the possible causes. Or are the drop outs lured away by such attractions as music, drugs, street gangs, hustling and just ‘hanging out’ with their buddies?

How do you propose to solve that problem?  Will you retain the disinterested with a full curriculum of movies, cartoons, concerts and video games and present them with a meaningless, worthless diploma they won’t be able to read?  Or will you pay them a salary while they stay in school?

” That responsibility begins not in our classrooms, but in our homes and communities. It’s family that first instills the love of learning in a child. Only parents can make sure the TV is turned off and homework gets done.  We need to teach our kids that it’s not just the winner of the Super Bowl who deserves to be celebrated, but the winner of the science fair; that success is not a function of fame or PR, but of hard work and discipline.”

The best masters of propaganda mix a little truth in with the manure. Obama fits that pattern. Nurturing curiosity and directing it into deep rather than shallow, short term channels begins at home.   What does he expect from illiterate welfare queens raising large mixed parentage families in the squalor of our inner cities?  They will yield a few gems and a great deal of gravel.

” If we take these steps – if we raise expectations for every child, and give them the best possible chance at an education, from the day they’re born until the last job they take – we will reach the goal I set two years ago: by the end of the decade, America will once again have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world.”

When  Sputnik went up, the school board raised the standards but we did not learn more, we just got lower grades.  If you want more college graduates, you should look for ways to make post secondary education affordable.  $2500. per year in tax credits does not scratch the surface, it is an idiotic symbolic gesture.

How much do our universities spend on HVAC & illumination?  What impact will government policies that skyrocket utility costs have on those expenditures?  Cap & trade won’t make higher education more affordable.  Using corn to make motor fuel will increase the cost of meals in the cafeteria.

” One last point about education. Today, there are hundreds of thousands of students excelling in our schools who are not American citizens. Some are the children of undocumented workers, who had nothing to do with the actions of their parents. They grew up as Americans and pledge allegiance to our flag, and yet live every day with the threat of deportation. Others come here from abroad to study in our colleges and universities. But as soon as they obtain advanced degrees, we send them back home to compete against us. It makes no sense.”

Case in point: Barack Obama Sr. came to America to study and returned to Kenya. Barack Jr.’s mother went to Indonesia to work. Had Obama stayed here, he would have been part of the ‘brain drain’.  Had he stayed in Kenya, we would probably be far better off today.

Several of the ‘Magnificent Nineteen’ obtained training in America as part of their mission of murder. Perhaps that should give Obama pause for reflection. We are training enemies, not just competitors.

Consider the impact of those illegal immigrants on our schools. How much money would we save if they were not here?  Why are they here?  Why have we left our southern border wide open for so long?
