America's Unconditional Surrender

Such words my ears have never heard, my lips have never uttered, and whose very contemplation has been forever unfathomable to me, and yet hear I am, witnessing this very thing; America's unconditional surrender, with nary a shot having been fired. And while I put some blame on our own collective apathy, the bulk of culpability rests squarely on the heads of Democrats in this nation along with a handful of Republicans wearing the wrong pajamas.

For decades we have been under invasion from our Southern border and although some have fought this incursion into America, far too many more have turned a blind eye. We have accepted these individuals as workers on our lawns, as contractors doing our vinyl siding, and as the people who picked our vegetables and fruits. For most of us, particularly those of us far removed from the border, it was easy to turn a blind eye as we enjoyed our weekends while an illegal alien tended our properties.

Now, that myopia is coming to haunt us.

The figure bandied about by our politicians and mainstream media is 11 million illegals in our midst. Other sources put that figure at closer to 20 or more million. Whatever the true number may be, it is nonetheless beyond debate that we have been overrun to the point of near helplessness. And the sheer numbers of illegals -- whom our politically correct brethren insist on calling "undocumented" -- has given the masses a sense of invincibility and boldness. has the story of this summer's pending activities planned by people who should be hiding from sight, not lobbying our elected Representatives for amnesty.

"I want to be an American"
People who broke the laws of the United States are brazenly using our own political system to advance their agenda of amnesty in America. People who should be under arrest and deported are debating with our Congress people in town halls this summer recess, and we let this happen. What is wrong here? I find this akin to finding a person living on your sofa one morning, and then having the intruder call the police to allege mistreatment from you, the homeowner.

Compassion is quite a lovely thing for the personal philanthropist, but compassion on the scale to which our elected Representatives have taken it is dereliction of duty regarding the U.S. Constitution, a document which all of our politicians have sworn an oath to uphold. And while they have removed all pretense of standing by those oaths, they have taken it to a new level by persecuting other elected officials for having the audacity to attempt to enforce their own oaths, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona being a prime example.

The political aspects of so-called "Immigration Reform"  and being compassionate for our Southern neighbors notwithstanding, we must demand of our politicians to uphold the laws of America, just as they have sworn to do. However, how many true Americans are even left in this country? Our youth have been indoctrinated to the point where they feel it is a basic human right for illegal aliens to invade our land. Mark Dice from Alex Jones' has a video supporting the notion that most people in America will sign just about any petition without thinking first. So it is little wonder that Obama won reelection in 2012.

The question is, how far do we let this go? Where is that fabled line in the sand? We send our brave kids to foreign lands to fight wars while we dishonor them at home, willingly surrendering the very country they fight to protect. And the media that is supposed to inform us remains enamored of the president and his minions, covering up the truth to preserve an agenda that will be the ultimate ruin of what was once the greatest nation the world has ever known.

In 2009 and 2010, we proved what a fired up population could do, and we took back the House of Representatives. Today, we have no such options left for us, the true American citizens of this country, because the Republicans we elect eventually turn their backs on us too. With the media firmly implanted in the hip pockets of the Progressives, I am afraid that we have lost the war.

Adios, America.

There's a Fungus Among Us

America, We Have a Problem
OK folks, my tin foil hat is on, and I'm wearing it with pride, because the American people must realize by now that our nation has a real problem, and if we don't wake up now, all could be lost. We have people all across this great land embedded in powerful positions, and making powerful decisions, no matter how innocuous they may appear to be on the surface. And we must marshal all of our resources to make them cease and desist.

Most readers here are probably already aware of the near-exclusion of the photo above and its appearance at New York's 9-11 Memorial Museum, but how many of you were as outraged as me as to the reasoning behind that near tragic decision?

The Creative Director of the museum in question is named Michael Shulan, who incredibly said, "I really believe that the way America will look best, the way we can really do best, is to not be Americans so vigilantly, so vehemently".  (Emphasis mine). Bless his little heart, but I think the only way to be an American is vigilantly and vehemently. In my school days, if someone said to me that I was being "too American", they would have received a knockus to the proboscis. Today, I have learned to control such violent outbursts, but I think Michael Shulan deserves no less than a punch in the nose.

Forgive me, but I still get angry when fans at a ballgame neglect to remove their hats when the Star Bangled Banner is playing, so when I hear that people -- alleged Americans, no less -- are worried about us being too "rah rah" America, I have to scratch my head and count to ten. However, I am growing weary of counting, and I say it's time we, as patriots, woke up.

Our Founding Fathers were what could be described as Liberals in the truest sense of the word, because what they fought for, after all, was Liberty. The word Conservative came into being to describe those of us who believe in conserving the brilliant document our Founders creating in writing our Constitution. We must remember that the Bill of Rights is basically the Ten Commandments for our new government.

Throughout time, our citizens have perverted the term Liberal into what we have today, a movement that has wiped its collective feet on our Constitution and started on a path to that of which our Founders warned; Tyranny. The kids of the 1960's rebelled against a society in which their parents became somewhat wealthy, enough so as to provide a very comfortable lifestyle for their precious little hippies, who appreciated none of it, seeking a Utopia they would never find and succeeding only in warping their minds further through hallucinogenic drugs.

Thus they began the ball rolling, ending up on the fast track in a circular rail line, heading for the same tyrannical environment they thought they were fighting in the 1960's. Instead of fighting the "establishment", the left has succeeded only in replacing the system with a new "establishment", one that is decidedly un-American.

Now, Michael Shulan may be only the Creative Directive of a museum in New York, but he is symptomatic of a larger problem in America, and it goes all the way up to the President of the United States. Obama is a universe apart from George Washington. Washington and the other Founders warned of the possibility of tyranny often, while Obama warns our youth to disregard those voices that warn of tyranny. And Obama travels abroad to apologize for America and ask that our "past transgressions" be forgiven.

Obama thinks that we -- Americans -- have been "too American" in the past. Of course, it can be argued that Obama is actually un-American in thought and deed, and the truly scary part is that he won re-election to the White House. That says one of two things: either we have well too many people who think like he does, or that well too many of our fellow patriots stayed home on election day. Neither scenario is acceptable.

I mentioned on a social site the other day that I have had an American flag on my family cars since the September 11, 2001 attacks on our beloved country, but what I didn't mention is that the practice was commonplace back then. I remember seeing car flags on a lot of cars, and it felt good to see. Today, when I see a car passing by that actually has a flag on it, I am surprised. That is a damned shame.

What I would like to see is the American spirit of unity of which Charlie Daniels wrote in 1980. If anyone remembers the song, In America, you'll know what I mean. The U.S. Olympic Hockey team's defeat of the Russians, and the  pending election of Ronald Reagan filled us with a sense of pride. More importantly, it made us feel like Americans and damned proud to be so. Where did that feeling go?

If it dissipated due to the relentless grinding of the Progressive movement, as I believe it has, then you, my friends, must shake it off and be proud to be Americans again. Make a difference, get involved. Be American, vigilantly and vehemently! And don't be ashamed to say it loud and clear. We must get back to the place where the lunatics were the ones who dared utter the words that Michael Shulan and others like him say and think everyday.

We, the patriots of America, are not the crazy ones. The crazy ones are the fungus among us.
