Here is one way to understand what being a conservative is.

President Obama and I disagree on a lot of things, but his idea of my children spending more time in school puts me over the edge of disgust.

With props to Mommy Life http://mommylife.net/archives/2009/09/obama_kids_need.html  I stumbled into an AP article saying, “Obama says American kids spend too little time in school, putting them at a disadvantage with other students around the globe.

Besides the fact that I have never seen any documentation of President Obama’s primary or secondary education, he is wrong.  Students around the globe come to America for the best education in the world, dear Sir.  There is no run for the border to Italy, Algeria, Egypt or elsewhere for higher learning.  Frig being a Rhodes scholar.

The public and parochial school systems may often be nothing more than over inflated propaganda machines at times.  It is hard to teach true grit and the idea of hard work and the desire to be the best.  I see the handouts of xerox copies from antiquated books and hear of the President of the United States saying study hard and if a poor black kid can make it so can you. 

The NEA and standardized testing teaches nothing as to what it takes to get ahead in this world.  One plus one used to equal two until President Obama’s socialistic programs came along to teach that you should spread the wealth so far that you will end up into negative territory.  Way to teach algebra.

Told my kids that even though they studied hard and got an A on the test everyone was getting a C.  That was only fair so that everyone would pass right?  Redistributing things so that they alone were not rewarded.  They got attention pdq.

One commentator at Mommy Life wrote- “Children need more love, more hugs, more kisses, more nature walks, more reading, more church camps, more gardening, more beach days, more pumpkin picking with Grandma, more museum visits, more visits to the elderly, more science center trips with Dad, more stories on Mommy’s lap, more LIFE!!”  I couldn’t agree more.

I am a working adult and I too need more time for love, hugs, and kisses to be bestowed upon my children.  I kiss and hug up my spouse all the time in front of the children.  It is called displays of affection and love. They need to see it and what is acceptable in a healthy relationship as they mature.  No government and no school is going to teach that – no matter how many hours they are forced to attend.

Our school offers something called ARC- a faith based youth group that goes out to do service deeds.  My eight year old absolutely refused to join saying that she does enough to help her grandmother with Alzheimer’s and that this group only pretends for a few hours to do the right thing.  That they don’t live community service,  they play and join when it is convenient.  That is grit- taught at home.  She is the only one out of the entire class that lives community service everyday, not just on Tuesdays and Thursdays for an hour.

The convenience of a school day to accomplish tasks is nice as a parent I must admit, but to think that more time in a structured environment will encourage more productivity is bull $hit.

It is the families job to have control of its children’s minds and hearts- not the governments.  Our youngest child is up at 6:30 am, gets home at 3, does homework for an hour, has dinner, grabs a shower, watches a few minutes of TV and sleeps. Throw in a soccer practice, track meet or some other extra curricular activity and the time spent as a family is reduced.  Play time—lol.

No wonder people buy their kids cell phones at the age of 5- the push to do more, be more, burn yourself out and forget about being a kid when all they have to do to say “I love you” to a parent is to text them. 

Imagination comes from play.  Sadly those days are few and far between during the school year.  Imagine if the apple had not hit Einstein, if no one dreamt of going to the moon, if all work and no play made Johnny so dull he never invented golf, tennis, football, basketball, etc.

Mr. President Sir- even you made time for trips to Hawaii and Cape Cod with your family.  Two whole weeks with your kids.  I for one, want every weekend and everyday of summer to enjoy our children.  To know them, for them to know me.  To know their favorite color, to buy a balloon and them tell me where it might go and who might find it when it is let go at the end of the day.  To go skiing on a snowy day, to head to the beach for spring break without the punishment of homework.

Letting go of our children to be productive citizens means we have done our jobs as parents and in no uncertain terms, it is not the job of the government.

The idea that schoolchildren are being indoctrinated to idolize President Barack Obama is ludacris and makes me wonder why now he has chosen to express his thought that kids need to spend more time in school.  Respect for the office yes but that is not what is coming across.   http://www.bostonherald.com/news/us_politics/view/20090926obama_song_prompts_school_probe/

President Obama you can not even control the spiraling debt, stay the fu(k out of my family time.

From School Kids Forced to Sing Praises to Obama! Indoctrination?
These elementary school kids are forced to sing songs of praise and worship to President Obama. Right or wrong? 

http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/80761048/

Is it all just an indoctrination to the Obama youth civilian corps and the youth volunteer act?

I am skeptical of every politician, especially President Obama.  At Kennedy’s eulogy, The President had the perfect opportunity to rub health care reform in my conservative face.  He mentioned it it of course, but spoke with class in part saying:

We cannot know for certain how long we have here. We cannot foresee the trials or misfortunes that will test us along the way. We cannot know God’s plan for us.

What we can do is to live out our lives as best we can with purpose, and love, and joy. We can use each day to show those who are closest to us how much we care about them, and treat others with the kindness and respect that we wish for ourselves. We can learn from our mistakes and grow from our failures. And we can strive at all costs to make a better world, so that someday, if we are blessed with the chance to look back on our time here, we can know that we spent it well; that we made a difference; that our fleeting presence had a lasting impact on the lives of other human beings.” 

Maybe he wrote it.  More likely a speechwriter.  

For the first time, I am giving President Barry Baraq Hussein Dunham  Sotero Obama, Jr. props.

I am once again reminded that using the term “homeland”, outside of a historical discussion of Germany, has allowed authorities access to broad powers and it is just a creepy reminder of Gestapo tactics. 

The latest assessments from The Department of Homeland Security, DHS and sent out to local police departments in advance of Tea Party’s of April 15 outlines disturbing viewpoints that should have every American taking pause.  What sort of government do we have that calls on people with Conservative viewpoints to be right wing extremists?

The federal Homeland Security Department document entitled “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Environment Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment” says “Right-wing extremists have capitalized on the election of the first African American president, and are focusing their efforts to recruit new members, mobilize existing supporters and broaden their scope and appeal through propaganda, but they have not yet turned to attack planning,” Read the entire report via https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/04/14/homeland-security-ids-tea-party-attendees-as-rightwing-threats/ 

From Northeast Intelligence Network http://homelandsecurityus.com/?p=2659 ” Listen to what I am saying,” stated the source during an interview with Doug Hagmann,  founder (NEIN).  “The Department of Homeland Security Intelligence Assessment that is receiving so much attention is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, and the true patriotic citizens of this country are on the Titanic. This is what bothers me. But is goes far beyond that assessment. There have been very significant changes made over the last few years that redirect the focus and assets of the intelligence community internally. These changes have greatly accelerated under this administration, and the threats have been redefined to include those who used to be patriots. It’s not only chilling but absolutely insulting to God-fearing Americans.”

Back up a few weeks ago and we have, “A single-page confidential directive issued by the FBI headquarters in Washington, DC…was sent to each of the 56 field offices located across the United States on or about March 23, 2009, instructing the Special Agents in Charge of those offices to verify the date, time and location of each TEA Party within their region and supply that information to FBI headquarters in Washington.” http://maggiesnotebook.blogspot.com/2009/04/fbi-leak-tea-party-spies-canada-report.html 

As in a previous post at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/11/16/defending-borders-and-privacy-laws-under-obama/ The Department of Homeland Security “claims that data gathered for law enforcement purposes will be “in compliance with privacy and civil liberties laws and policies of the United States,” the GAO found that “by broadly sharing information with non-federal users, who are not bound by the Privacy Act, personal information could be at risk of being used in ways not specified when it was originally collected.” Considering that some 70% of U.S. intelligence assets are employees of private security and defense contractors, GAO is a civil liberties disaster waiting to happen.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=BUR20081109&articleId=10864

Heading the Department of Homeland Security, DHS is Janet Napolitano the former Governor of Arizona, and a former US Attorney under Janet Reno in the Clinton Administration.  http://www.augustreview.com/obama_administration.pdf has her listed as a member of the CFR- the Council on Foreign Relations which advocates internationalism.  No doubt none of us want another WACO  or 911, ever- but releasing by releasing these documents and saying that illegal immigration is not a crime, plus that the 9/11 terrorists had entered the country from Canada (sourced at http://www.newsmax.com/insidecover/napolitano_illegals_crime/2009/04/22/205948.html ) when in reality they flew into this country on documents issued by the State Department -is a reminder of why she is not qualified to hold this appointed position.  She is supposed to be serving to protect our country, not decimate it with ignorance.  Now people are asking for her resignation.

“Singling out political opponents for working against the ruling party is precisely the tactic of every tyrannical government from Red China to Venezuela,” Texas Rep. John Carter told Politico. He organized an hour of floor speeches Wednesday night to call for Napolitano’s ouster. “The first step in the process is creating unfounded public suspicion of political opponents, followed by arresting and jailing any who continue speaking against the regime.”

It isn’t civil disobedience that motivates Republicans, Democrats, Conservatives, Libertarians or Independents to take a stand against the policies of the Obama Administration, it is the objection of where this country is headed. 

Does any of this proves that Obama is behind the “right wing radicals” memo out of Homeland Security?  Obama did appoint her.  One thing it proves is that the balance of privacy is shifting and even though Tax Day has ended, we must be diligent that the War the DHS is waging does not come at the cost of personal freedom and privacy for law abiding, decent Americans.

Just when you think you’ve heard it all in the election cycle, comes along more fuel to the fire with columnist, Kathleen Parker of the Washington Post blathering on why the Republicans lost this year’s election, and it’s all God’s fault.  She writes at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/11/18/AR2008111802886.html 

“Three little letters, great big problem: G-O-D. I’m bathing in holy water as I type. To be more specific, the evangelical, right-wing, oogedy-boogedy branch of the GOP is what ails the erstwhile conservative party and will continue to afflict and marginalize its constituents if reckoning doesn’t soon cometh.  Simply put: Armband religion is killing the Republican Party.”

People have legitimate positions on all sides of these issues and we don’t have to agree with all of them, but a description of the oogedy-boogedy branch of the GOP is rather offensive. Socially conservative positions may not be the popular vote, but to suggest that a whole group of people leave their values behind is ludicrous.  Religion is very personal thing, but not necessarily private.  The gorilla she professes as a God problem is really the abortion issue. Obama made clear his support for the policy of federal funding and with regard to his personal life, saying that if his daughter’s made a mistake, he wouldn’t want them punished for the rest of their lives.  Did Obama learn this from Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church, The Koran, The Bible?

History will tell us of the consequence of voting for Obama and his selection of pro-abortion former U.S. senator Tom Daschle of South Dakota as his Health and Human Services Secretary. His announcement came on The Feast Day of St. Elizabeth of Hungary, the patroness of Catholic hospitals.  It strikes me that proposition 8 in California, was defeated by the those same socially conservative voters that elected Obama.

In his homily before the election November 3, 2008,  Most Reverend Robert W. Finn
Bishop of Kansas City-St. Joseph http://whitearoundthecollar.blogspot.com/ wrote in part , ” In a country where we have made choice an absolute, we must remember that underlying every choice is a value; that flowing from every choice is a consequence; that we must give an accounting to God for what we decide.” 

“The recent election was principally decided out of concern for the economy, for the loss of jobs and homes and financial security for families, here and around the world. If the election is misinterpreted ideologically as a referendum on abortion, the unity desired by President-elect Obama and all Americans at this moment of crisis will be impossible to achieve,” said, Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), voiced hope for the Obama Administration but pointed to possible obstacles to our desired unity. http://www.usccb.org/comm/archives/2008/08-174.shtml

Pope Benedict XVI delivered this message at the general audience in St. Peter’s Square, Vatican City on November 12, 2008, “Our life in this world, marked by trials and tribulations, must be inspired by the hope of heaven and the expectation of our resurrection to glory.”  http://zenit.org/article-24235?l=english 

If the abandonment of God and his public followers is the way to garner votes for the GOP, it is a sad reflection on our society.    Whether one defines themselves as Catholic, Protestant, Lutheran, Mormon, Muslim, Orthodox, Baptist or as she refers to the Evangelicals, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evangelicalism we should define ourselves in theocracy with the love of God and country and if that means wearing an armband for unborn children, then so be it.

“So while insulting G-O-D, she also insulted people like me. Like you. People who insist on infusing their faith into their politics. And that’s okay; I’d rather be in the oogedy-boogedy section of Heaven (God willing), than in the hoity-toity room of hell, where’s there possibly very little elbow room.”  http://actsoftheapostasy.blogspot.com/2008/11/rise-up-ye-oogedy-boogedy-of-god.html

“What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, but to lose his soul?”  

God Bless America.

Obama doesn’t bother to take care of your his own family members let alone citizens of America.  Obama’s Aunt Zeituni Onyango, from Kenya is living in the the United States illegally and living in the Boston projects – just up the road from the Harvard Law School that Obama attended.  WASHINGTON (AP) – Barack Obama’s aunt, a Kenyan woman who has been quietly living in public housing in Boston, is in the United States illegally after an immigration judge rejected her request for asylum four years ago, The Associated Press has learned.  Zeituni Onyango, 56, referred to as “Aunti Zeituni” in Obama’s memoir,  “Dreams of my Father” was instructed to leave the United States by a U.S. immigration judge who denied her asylum request. http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D945SVMO1&show_article=1  She decided to stay in the US and why wouldn’t she with her nephew slated in some polls to win the Presidency of the USA?

No further details were given by the AP as to how much Onyango has received in federal benefits; whether it’s limited to public housing, or includes food stamps, SSI, or other government hand outs as well.  The story was originally brought to light http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/us_elections/article5042571.ece and said ” Speaking outside her home in Flaherty Way, South Boston, on Tuesday, Ms Onyango, 56, confirmed she was the “Auntie Zeituni” in Mr Obama’s memoir. She declined to answer most other questions about her relationship with the presidential contender until after the November 4 election. “I can’t talk about it, I just pray for him, that’s all,” she said, adding: “After the 4th, I can talk to anyone.”   I can’t wait to hear what Auntie Z she has to say.  Does Aunt Z know something about where Obama was born?  Did Obama himself ask her not to talk to the press until after the election?  How could her wealthy nephew, who is running for the Presidency, ignore her plight when easily as a Senator could have asked for intervention and review of her case?    

It would only be natural for Obama’s Aunt Zeituni to want to support her nephew and so far she has contributed $260 toward Obama’s campaign.   http://fundrace.huffingtonpost.com/neighbors.php?type=name&lname=Onyango&fname=Zeituni&search=Search  The problem in financially supporting Obama is that it is against the law for a foreigner to contribute to an election. Under federal election law, only U.S. citizens or green-card holders are legally permitted to give money to campaigns. Onyango, who listed her employer as the Boston Housing Authority, gave in small increments to the Obama campaign. Her latest contribution was $5 on Sept. 19. I wonder if the Federal Elections Committee is going to ask That One to give her a refund or even bother with scrutinizing any of the donations he has received in $5- $ 25 increments  .http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2008/01/obamas-radical.html wrote back in January 2008 about his half sister Maya Soetoro-Ng.  They have the same mother but have different fathers.  She is quoted to say, about him being a Muslim,  “it has been erroneously attached to my brother,  The man has been a Christian for twenty years.” that One has been a Christian for 20 years, what was he the other years?   A Muslim?

If we add up Obama’s alleged half brother in Kenya living in a hut on a dollar a month and an aunt from Kenya living here illegally, throw in twenty years as a Christian and we must question Obama’s family values and character once again.  America can not trust Obama as far as you can see him. 

Is Obama a racist in visiting and caring for his white grandmother, with whom he just visited in Hawaii, while his black aunt and black half brother live in poverty? 

Perhaps Obama has aligned himself to the Ownership Society more than previously thought.  In his Democratic Candidates acceptance speech he said of McCain, “For over two decades, he’s subscribed to that old, discredited Republican philosophy – give more and more to those with the most and hope that prosperity trickles down to everyone else. In Washington, they call this the Ownership Society, but what it really means is – you’re on your own. Out of work? Tough luck. No health care? The market will fix it. Born into poverty? Pull yourself up by your own bootstraps – even if you don’t have boots. You’re on your own http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/Conventions/story?id=5680403&page=1 

Apparently Aunt Zeituni is on her own and Mr. & Mrs. Obama will not be spreading any of that wealth they have earned around to keep her out of public housing.

This family is better than an episode of the Soprano’s on HBO.

It has been certifiable madness that there are so many lawsuits in the courts in an effort to get Barack Obama to provide his “vault version” of his birth certificate in order to prove his eligibility to become President.  Instead, we the public are shown a fraudulent birth certificate (short version)- a certificate of live birth,  that was deemed credible by factcheck.org (which by the way, is funded by the Anneneburg Foundation–the board Obama sat on for years with William Ayers of–no conflict of interest there!). Instead of making the lawsuits go away instantly by providing the vault version of his birth certificate, he has refused to do so. Wouldn’t logic dictate to provide it and the lawsuit would go away?  Instead, we have a Democrat, Philip J. Berg, Esq., http://www.obamacrimes.com/ petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court for a ruling on whether his, case Berg vs Obama, et al has standing, and requests that the entire Presidential Election not occur on November 4. Berg vs Obama No. 08-cv-04083. http://dockets.justia.com/docket/court-paedce/case_no-2:2008cv04083/case_id-281573/

Yesterday it seems that privacy laws were broken in Hawaii.   “Hawaii Health Department spokeswoman Janice Okubo told the Tribune state privacy laws and attorney general guidance barred her from confirming the certificate’s authenticity. But, “It looks exactly the same as my own birth certificate,” Okubo said.”  HOW DOES OKUBO KNOW WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE?  http://www.upi.com/Top_News/2008/10/30/Rumor_questions_Obamas_birth_certificate/UPI-64261225393575/  Hiding for months behind privacy laws and legal wrangling, the Health Department Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino has refused to issue a copy of his vaulted birth certificate.  Then, just in time for Halloween trick and treats we have Fukino saying in a report from Associated Press:  “HONOLULU (AP) – State officials say there’s no doubt Barack Obama was born in Hawaii.  Health Department Director Dr. Chiyome Fukino says she and the registrar of vital statistics, Alvin Onaka, have personally verified that the health department holds Obama’s original birth certificate. Fukino says that no state official, including Gov. Linda Lingle, ever instructed that Obama’s certificate be handled differently from any other.  She says state law bars release of a certified birth certificate to anyone who does not have a tangible interest in it.” http://www.khnl.com/Global/story.asp?S=9275581  “State law (Hawai’i Revised Statutes §338-18) prohibits the release of a certified birth certificate to persons who do not have a tangible interest in the vital record,” said DOH Director Chiyome Fukino. “Therefore, I as Director of Health for the State of Hawai’i, along with the Registrar of Vital Statistics who has statutory authority to oversee and maintain these type of vital records, have personally seen and verified that the Hawai’i State Department of Health has Sen. Obama’s original birth certificate on record in accordance with state policies and procedures.”

In a complete head spinning act like the girl from the movie The Exorcist, she makes a statement that not only has she seen Obama’s birth certificate, but that it is authentic and he was in fact born in Hawaii.  Well, that’s a bunch of vomit.  This is the woman who once said,        “All of the evidence that we have says that the beaches are as safe now as they were before the sewage spill.” http://thinkexist.com/quotes/dr._chiyome_fukino/  Seeing that she is so well versed in crap, we are expected to believe that she got off her high horse and broke the law to peer into a sealed document that is protected by her own state of Hawaii’s laws on privacy?

Governor Lingle, clearly has indicated that Obama’s birth certificate not be handled any differently, yet we see a government employee doing just that and breaking the law.  Why now, after months of legal filings has she decided to come forward to admit that she has seen That One’s birth certificate?  When did she see it?  Under who’s authority did she act?  Why is spokesperson Janice Okubo claiming to have knowledge of what Obama’s birth certificate looks like.  If Okubo, a lowly employee got a glimpse of Obama’s birth certificate, at the very least there must be others who may also attest to its content. 

Perhaps Obama should sue in the state of Hawaii since it is obvious that a crime was committed against him by Hawaii’s own Health Department in releasing an opinion, opening a sealed document, and blatantly violating Obama’s own right to privacy.  Had the Hawaii Health Department claimed that Obama was in fact born some where else than Hawaii, the outcome would have serious repercussions on the election and immediate actions would be taken, most certainly in a court of law.  I do not believe that any Court in the land would accept testimony in place of the presentation of an actual document which is easily accessible to an expert witness.  Obama, before he became a politician was a graduate of the Harvard School of Law, and would certainly have never accepted a statement from an expert witness when there is documentation available.

Further implications and a nice write up of her statements are made at http://michaelpatrickleahy.blogspot.com/2008/10/show-us-birth-certificate-hawaii.html

Until Obama himself releases the authentic, vaulted birth certificate, this will not go away, nor should it.  The debate rages on as to who has standing to enforce the rules of eligibility, and in an effort to protect anyone from taking the Office of The President of The United States who is not a citizen, we the people need to see our nominees birth certificates and not take just take someone’s word for it.

America needs to move past this and Obama needs to once and for all release his own birth certificate.  While Obama is in full disclosure mode, he should at the very least make a statement about the dinner he attended for Khalidi with his wife and William Ayers.  

If I were to make public these tapes, containing blunt and candid remarks on many different subjects, the confidentiality of the office of the president would always be suspect.
Richard M. Nixon
