Disenfranchised Americans

December 13, 2008

Surely John Adams Is Repenting in Heaven For the Sheep Who Are His Posterity.

Although it is sad to contemplate, it is the reality of today’s America, as more and more traditional Americans of faith, conservatives, small business owners, the military, are feeling disenfranchised from their own country and their government. I am one of them.

How can any American of old-fashioned honesty and character continue to believe in a government that is so blatantly corrupt?  How can Americans trust greedy leaders who tax them to redistribute their hard earned money as rewards to other greedy politicians and overpaid and corrupt business executives? We have only to examine Congress’s own businesses, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, that were plundered by that same Congress and their favored friends, resulting in the near collapse of the nation’s banking system. This is even before we ponder the now commonplace scenario of tenaciously clutching onto so-called elected positions until death do they depart, only to bequeath those seats in Congress to family members as though they were a part of an anointed Solon’s estate.  Now we are discovering that in the former land of Lincoln, a United States Senate seat is offered to the highest bidder.

The church I have belonged to all of my life is being attacked and its members persecuted by my fellow countrymen and America’s vetted churches of Christendom. My traditional beliefs that were taught me long ago by my family, teachers and church are now lampooned by Americans of today who know little of America’s history. We are now described as uneducated and full of hate by “in favor” American Christians, when we are not being ridiculed. I have been publicly told by the now President-elect of the United States that the American flag I once proudly displayed at my home and wore on my clothing, was merely a sign of my own “false patriotism.”  I have never felt a racist thought against anyone, and have lived closely with people of many different races including African Americans. However, for the first time in my long life, in 2008, I was repeatedly labelled a racist because I, a conservative, did not support a liberal black man as candidate for President of the U.S. At the same time, those very same Americans who labeled John McCain supporters as racists, now condemn the founders of this country because those who volunteered in 1776, to sacrifice their own blood, sweat and tears for our freedom, were rich white males.

“Posterity! you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make a good use of it If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.” ~John Adams letter to his wife Abigail Adams, 26 April 1777.

We, the disenfranchised Americans, were taught that our vote was sacred; that it had been won for us with the blood of patriots. How can we continue to believe that when we see with our own eyes federally-funded groups such as A.C.O.R.N run ads on television against our preferred conservative candidate? Why would we continue going to the polls when we know that these same federally-sanctioned community organizations will be stealing our votes, with our own tax money, by overwhelming them with dozens or hundreds of ill-gotten illegal votes? How can our “one” vote stand up against the onslaught of criminality encouraged by our own government’s elected officials?

Today, all over America, the military, conservatives and Christians are being publicly disenfranchised in the very nation that their predecessors created. Signs of faith of “out of favor” Christians are banned, outlawed, and destroyed. We see that a law-abiding “out of favor” group, the Mormons, cannot go to the polls and vote their consciences without violent ramifications and persecutions, whilst members of African American churches are praised for doing the exact same thing. When Christians cannot freely speak on public streets without police protection, or even with police protection, we see that not only is “Freedom of Religion” dead, but “Freedom of Speech” is too. (See the VIDEO.)

Just today, two weeks before our Christian holiday of Jesus’ birth, the Alaskan church of Sarah Palin was struck by arsonists. The smoke alarms of the church saved the lives of the women and children working inside, from evil would be murderers of innocent “out of favor” Christians. (Anchorage, Alaska) Governor Palin’s Church is one of those conservative churches that is now reviled by much of America, the media, late night comics and mainstream Protestantism. Her church believes in the same traditional Christian tenets that the Pilgrims and Puritans brought to this land; tenets which come from the Holy Bible.

However, these disenfranchised Americans who are being deprived of their Constitutional rights, are still expected to swear oaths supporting the Constitution that is not supporting them, to pay taxes which are then used in schemes to further bludgeon them, to send their children to schools to be indoctrinated to revile their own parents’ beliefs and culture, and to continue to raise their young people to believe it patriotic to fight America’s wars, although America will never fight for any of the reviled, out-of-favor, and disenfranchised ones.

Mainstream America, secular and progressive America, finds that fair and just, as they tell us that we are disenfranchised from their “changed” America because we are worse than Hitler and more frightening than Osama bin Laden and all of Al Qaeda put together.


Seven Years of Calm

No Terrorists Attacks In the United States! Why?

  • On October 12, 2002, in Bali, Indonesia, Al-Qaeda’s Jemaah Islamiyah terrorists targeted packed nightspots, killing 202 people, including more than 160 foreigners. There are even more nightclubs in the United States, why didn’t al-Qaeda target us here?
  • On March 11, 2004, in Madrid, Spain, 191 people were killed and more than 1,800 injured in a series of explosions on four trains. al-Qaeda took responsibility for that accomplishment to avenge the presence of Spanish troops in Iraq. But why didn’t the terrorists bomb American trains on American soil? We had even more troops in Iraq than did the Spanish.
  • On the morning of Wednesday September 1, 2004, in Beslan, Russia, Muslim terrorists and Arab mercenaries wearing explosive belts stormed a school taking 1,200 parents, students, children, and infants hostage. They wired a room with explosives and threatened to blow up the school during a three-day standoff. The children were refused food and water and were held in stifling heat in a gymnasium while the world waited. As Russian forces were collecting corpses from the initial raid outside the school, the militants in the school triggered the explosives inside the school. As the surviving hostages attempted to flee, the terrorists shot them and their rescuers in their backs. At least 326 people — 156 of them children — were murdered at that school and more than 700 wounded. Although 26 of the terrorists were killed, several escaped. Why did not these terrorists take over an American school on American soil? We have lots of schools here.
  • On July 11, 2006, in Mumbai, India, seven high-powered blasts on suburban trains killed more than 200 commuters and injured at least 800. America has commuter trains too, why did not al-Qaeda target American trains with bombs?
  • On November 26 of this year, again in Mumbai, India, Islamist gunmen launched attacks against luxury hotels. Gunmen from al-Qaeda’s Deccan Mujahedeen group claimed responsibility for the attacks, which killed more than 100. A rabbi, Gavriel Hertzberg, and his pregnant wife were sought out and murdered as were other Jews and Americans. America has many luxury hotels, many Jews and many, many more Americans. Why did al-Qaeda spare hotels and tourists in America’s homeland?

Could these “Seven Years of Calm in America” have had anything to do with the leadership of America’s Commander in Chief, George W. Bush, his administration and the fighting men and women of his military?


Vote Obama – No More War!

Gut the Military! Quick – Quick, Before We Fight Again!

As President” you’re going to end the war? Well, isn’t that what all of you Democrat members of Congress promised two years ago when you were elected to a majority? Where’s the end of the war you promised then?


No POWs Allowed!

The Hidden Dangers of John McCain

That renowned military expert and former commander in chief of all United States Military Forces, BILL CLINTON, has surreptitiously warned us, while speaking at Aspen Colorado, that electing JOHN MCCAIN as president could be very dangerous. CLINTON implies that because JOHN MCCAIN was a Prisoner of War in Vietnam for many years, he could snap at most any moment in the future and lose his temper.

HORRORS of all HORRORS! Even worse, JOHN MCCAIN could go berserk while hosting a state dinner, or while wagging his finger at the nation on national TV. JOHN MCCAIN could become a full blown psychopath leading a nation with nukes. IMAGINE THAT? Well at least JOHN McCAIN will have an honorable excuse for his mental disturbances – he was serving his country as a young man in wartime. So what is former President BILL CLINTON’s excuse is for being a psychopath with a fiery temper? He was never anywhere near a military uniform, much less a war zone, in his youth.

Most unfortunately, the nation did not have the expertise and guidance of BILL CLINTON to keep it from electing a former POW back in the days of President “OLD HICKORY.” Without the “insane” leadership of the man who had fought for his country in two wars, including a stint where both he and his brother were taken as prisoners of war, our nation would undoubtedly be a better one today. It was President OLD HICKORY who did indeed go berserk and create “The Democrat Party.”

Bill Clinton Warns of Mental Problems of Former POWs


Ann Coulter Was Right!

July 17, 2006

Dumped, Dropped, Canned

With her book at #2 on Amazon, it probably does not much matter to Ann Coulter that she is now being fired by national publications for her latest screeds. Harridan to Liberals, heroine to Right-wingers, she is not Kerfuffles’ choice for a representative of Conservatism, although conservative she is indeed. Like her or love her, she is entertaining when she displays the distinctive public persona she has so meticulously crafted. Whisking away her long blond hair from her always sleeveless shoulders, she drives Liberals wild, especially those of the female variety. Since the publication of her latest screed, “Godless”, she has taken to wearing a Christian cross to appropriately accentuate her plunging neckline, or is it vice-versa?

However, even Kerfuffles has defended Ann Coulter when “Ann Coulter Was Right!” (from my former blog, “Blatherings”, of Monday, February 07, 2005).

Canadian Broadcasting Company’s Bob McKeown was hosting a TV broadcast “The Fifth Estate,” on January 26th, which devoted one hour to show Canadians how the American media have been high jacked by conservative bullies. Strident conservative pundit and personality, Ann Coulter, was interviewed during which the following exchange occurred:

Coulter: “Canada used to be one of our most loyal friends and vice-versa. I mean Canada sent troops to Vietnam – was Vietnam less containable and more of a threat than Saddam Hussein?”

McKeown interrupts: “Canada didn’t send troops to Vietnam.”

Coulter: “I don’t think that’s right.”

Since that interview, Coulter has been unmercilessly attacked for saying that Canada sent troops to Vietnam. She has been called an epithet-throwing fictionalist, liar, loudmouth ignoramus, outrageous nationalist and described as empty-headed and shameful, and this in just one editorial, by Doug Ireland at Driland! By doing a short Google search, I discovered that Ann Coulter was correct. There is nothing like the truth to send the liberals into the out of control spin zone.

In 1973, the International Commission of Control and Supervision Vietnam (ICCS) was responsible for securing the armistice that lasted two years from 1973 to 1975, known as Operation Gallant. Canada, a member of the commission, contributed 240 Canadian Forces whose role was to monitor the cease-fire in South Vietnam, according to the Paris Peace Conference, and to arrange the release and exchange of more than 32,000 prisoners of war. In addition, ten to forty thousand Canadians, voluntarily served in Vietnam or during the Vietnam era with the American military, of whom 111 Canadians, were lost. One Canadian soldier, Toronto born Peter C. Lemon, won the Congressional Medal of Honor.

The Canadian government believed that because of its membership in ICCS, that Canada had to remain impartial during the Vietnam Conflict. While Canada as a nation was not involved in the fighting, Canadians themselves formed the largest foreign contingent in the U.S. military during the Vietnam era. Although exact numbers are not obtainable, some estimate that between 30,000 and 40,000 served and that 12,000 Canadians actually were in American uniforms in the war zone.

Because it is almost a state secret, most Canadians do not even know that their own Canadian Armed Forces won a Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts in Vietnam.

When the Canadian Vietnam veterans returned to their homeland, they were even more unwelcome than here in the United States, where at least returning veterans had access to government resources. Today, there is a memorial, “The North Wall”, at Assumption Park, Windsor, Ontario, overlooking the Detroit River. It honors the 103 Canadians who lost their lives in Vietnam and the seven who went missing in action. It is a fine tribute to those Canadians who served and sacrificed all for their belief in freedom.
