This is not intended to paint the entire generation that followed the "Greatest Generation" with the same red brush. There are certainly patriotic citizens and those who cherish the liberty our founders established among the offspring of the generation who fought World War II. I am related by blood and by marriage to such patriotic children of the "Greatest Generation".
This is about the groovy hippies who never grew out of that phase. This is about the "peace" and "love" types like Bill Ayers who likely mentored Barack Obama more than he would ever admit to the voting public. This is about those who were born in the forties and went from the university to law school to Congress and soaked up all the Marxist ideology they could along the way. This is about those who went from hippy to Congressional intestinal worm and have infested the Capitol for decades. This is about the likes of George Miller (Dimocrat CA-7), who has been in the House since he was twenty-nine years old in 1974. Thank God all of California isn't the same as San Francisco (of course I thank God all of Illinois isn't the same as Chicago too). It is too bad California doesn't have more representatives like the elder and younger Duncan Hunter!
To ensure that American workers are able to follow, without financial harm, the recommendations of their employer and public health authorities to stay home when they have symptoms of a contagious disease that may put co-workers, customers, or the public at risk.
The "without financial harm" is the key to this intrusion. We do not require the federal government to determine how many (if any) paid sick days our employers allow! If a person has influenza, his employer will not make him come to work for fear of losing his job. That is of course if the employer is one for whom it is worth working or if the employee isn't an awful employee.
They have moved the government takeover of medical care delivery in our nation through the House. They with the help of RINOs like Mark Kirk have moved the Cap and Trade job killing and cost raising catastrophe through the House. They, again with the "bipartisan" help of "moderates" like Mark Kirk instituted thought crime legislation, because apprently in the eyes of the leftist, a violent crime such as murder should only warrant a maximum punishment if it can be called a "hate crime". By the way, is the murder victim more dead if he was hated by his killer? Is there such thing as a murder, mugging, or assault that is commited out of love for the victim?
The left has used its tools such as the ACLU and the education system to place our nation in such a politically correct contortion that a Muslim who should have never been allowed near our soldiers after some of his sympathies and viewpoints became known was instead allowed to be a psychiatrist in the Army and on Thursday he slaughtered 13 people and injured several more at Fort Hood.
Our children and grandchildren owe a huge debt that they had no say in creating. This is thanks to Republicans as well as the Dimocrats, but the burden on our children can not be too great in the eyes of the leftist vermin who now run our government. The hippies traded communes for their brand of Communism. They redistribute wealth from the taxpayerto the ever-growing dependent class for the sake of some Utopian "greater good" and borrow, borrow, then borrow some more to feed their appetites for governmental domination of the "middle class".
They seek to forcibly silence dissent as their Cuban and Venezualan role models have. They strive for democracy when the mob will vote to seize from the producer or empower the bureaucracy. They villify businesses ... unless the businesses support their agenda. They demonize profit, just not their own. They artfully practice identity politics and still claim that a black man doesn't have a chance in this "mean" country despite the election of Barack Obama. They insist that Muslim terrorists not be identified as Muslim but they along with their accomplices in the liberal media try to implicate Christians when an abortionist is murdered.
They seek the moral degradation of society to weaken the will of the citizen and make him more susceptible to their socialist goals. They are detstable and their actions are harmful. It is past time for Republicans in positions of political power to stop referring to them as "my friend..." It is time to truly be a "party of no" every time the damn Statists attempt to do any damn thing on a federal level that does not fall under an enumerated power in our Constitution! It is time to respect our Constitution and stop denigrating the decent citizens who demand that which constitutionally must fall to the states or local governments actually be left alone by the federal behemoth, as "tenthers"! The Constitution is specific and the Bill of Rights opposes the ten pillars (which can be found in Uncle Karl's book) revered by the Statist.
The above may seem like ranting or rambling, if so, you shouldn't have read it. The times in which we live seem crazy and we don't need our government actively exacerbating the insanity!
