When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us already…. What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”
The quote referenced above is from a speech made by Adolf Hitler in Germany in 1933. Let’s fast forward 80 years to the year 2013 in the United States of America. Melissa Harris-Perry, MSNBC host and political science professor at Tulane University, states in a promo video for MSNBC’s Lean Forward campaign, “We have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. Once it’s everyone’s responsibility, and not just the household’s, then we start making better investments.” Are you kidding me? Your children do not belong to you, but to the collective. WTF???!!! This sounds like it could have come right from the mouth of Hitler or Karl Marx. Let’s be honest with ourselves, the term progressive is really nothing more than another word for statist/marxist just as the term conservative has become another word for warmonger. While I am clearly no big fan of Fox News and understand they present biased news on a daily basis, MSNBC has gone off the deep end by openly spewing Marxist/Communist propaganda.
Parents, now more than ever, it is imperative that you be aware of the information that your children are being fed in our public schools. You need to be involved in their education and to be cognizant of what they are being taught. I am afraid that you will find much of it has become politicized propaganda. And now with an increasing push to further federalize education and curriculum, this propaganda will attempt to gain an even bigger foothold. Keep your eyes open and get involved with your PTA and local school board. Do you want people like Harris-Perry telling the schools what your children should be taught? Here is the short video clip for your shock and disbelief.
It used to be that our churches followed the teachings of Christ and were the biggest anti-war groups in this country, yet that has somehow changed in the last 40-50 years. More importantly, we have allowed ourselves to accept as normal the modern day concept of collateral damage in war. This is complete bullshit, especially when the wars in which we are engaging our first-strike wars of choice. It used to be considered a war crime to target civilians. Former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara stated that if the US would have lost WWII, he and Colonel Lemay would have been prosecuted for war crimes over their aerial bombardment and wanton destruction of so many Japanese cities and civilians. This so-called collateral damage involves real people with innocent women and children dying and suffering, along with our best young men and women, all so our political and corporate elites can secure more power and money.
It is bad enough that we allowed George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld to take us into a war in Iraq that was knowingly based upon a lie. What is worse is that the US military has been using depleted uranium shells in Iraq and Afghanistan in spite of the fact that most nations have signed an international agreement vowing not to use them. These weapons have created a truly humanitarian nightmare in places like Fallujah as they have left behind a radioactive disaster. The children in these areas have been affected the most as the number of birth defects and other problems have skyrocketed. Read the following short articles and then imagine if one of these mentioned were your children or family members.
We cannot claim to be pro-life on the issue of abortion, yet support every foreign military adventure in which our country engages against people of different races and religions. More importantly, tell me how these aggressive first strike wars line up with Jesus’ teachings in the Bible, because our churches have been the cheerleaders of them. The United States of America did not exist during the time of Christ or for close to two-thousand years after, yet somehow we Christians should ignore his message of peace now in the name of “patriotism.” Where does our allegiance lay? Non-interventionism is the true Christian foreign policy. We clearly have a right to defend ourselves, but we do not have a right to engage in first strike wars based upon the orders of those who stand to benefit the most from these very same wars and many of which are based on lies. Listen to President Eisenhower’s farewell presidential address and you will understand why the US has been at war for the last 60 years. It has nothing to do with freedom.
I will leave you with these articles which pretty much are a major example of why so many people in the Middle East hate the US. It is not because we have freedom, which by the way, is the most nonsensical line of crap reasoning ever invented. It is because of what do in many of those areas that has created so much animosity.
Let’s never let our churches be the cheerleaders of aggressive first strike wars again.

JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, and Wells Fargo can’t even make money without taxpayer subsidies and government bailouts even though they are basically getting free money from the Fed. Read the article here.
TSA, keeping you safe from handicapped 3 year-old girls, one wheelchair at a time. Thank you for destroying the Fourth Amendment, Neo-Con Republicans. I ask you, who are the real terrorists? Could it be the military-security-Wall Street complex? You think President Eisenhower might have known a thing or two when he warned us? I will leave it to you to decide.
Hey Republicans, this is why you lost the election. Time to wake up. It is 2013, you need to spread the message of liberty.
If you have never seen this movie, I highly recommend that you watch. If only for the fact that you will actually learn some facts. Draw your own conclusions.
We all have various opinions on the state of this country and where we are headed as a nation. This being said, I think we can all agree that things have changed drastically since the attacks of 9/11. It was unprecedented in our history and left a deep emotional scar on our collective psyche. Considering the sea change that has happened in this country regarding our foreign policy and the rule of law since 9/11, I think it would do all Americans a little good to at least know a number of facts that you have probably never seen or heard on television. In fact, I would venture to say that 80%-90% of Americans know nothing about 9/11 other than what they heard on the news or read in the newspaper in the days following the attacks. Please listen when I say that I am not making any claims about what did or did not happen. I just want you to learn some things that you probably never knew. For instance, did you know that Bin Laden denied responsibility for 9/11 in the days following the attacks? This is a fact. See the link to the CNN article below. Did you not knowing this fact make it any less true? Nope. And yes, I know that we are told he orchestrated the whole thing. And yes, he probably was intimately involved in the attacks and directly responsible. However, how many of you knew that he even denied responsibility? This is my point. As such, please just take 5 minutes out of your day and learn a few facts that you probably never knew by clicking on this link. These are things that you have never been told by ABC, Fox News, or NBC. Just click on the blue text above that says “link” or on the “History Lesson” link below. Facts are facts, truth is truth. To quote on old cliche, “You are entitled to your own opinions, but you are not entitled to your own set of facts.” DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE TRUTH, EVEN IF IT MIGHT DRASTICALLY CHANGE YOUR VIEW OF THE WORLD.
