Let's see, the native- Americans were the real Americans, hyphenated or not. In chronological order and in sequitur comes Spanish- Americans ( the firs white- Americans, Spain extended his empire to Florida, California, Arizona...), British-Americans, French- Americans, Dutch -Americans, African- Americans ( the first opressed "negroes" by "white straight men") just to mentioned a few. Before I knew the meaning of " hyphenated" as a child growing up in Puerto Rico I could have swaer to God that blacks, American-indians and other minorities were being "hyphenated" by white straight men in white hoods. Sorry, American-history is what it is, hyphenated or not. Poeple came here from all over the world, including your ancestors...and they came here to stay and to make history, American history!
As Americans, our mission is to vote, to argue, to volunteer and to donate to good causes, and in our typical generosity to teach new Americans that this is the real American Way...and to rejoice when they learn about Freedom and Democracy and Liberty. But these feelings need to come spontaneously from the compassion of the heart and not from the mighty "ten dimes". The pedagogy of Zimbabwe, gender studies and others that you might dismiss as spurious is nothing less than lessons about our own Humanity wich is entwined with the rest of the Humanity of the world. It is your choice to learn about it, or get stuck in the Enlightenment, as essential as the Enlighttenment is for the sake of overall culture. After all, these lessons are not incompatible with each other but complementary.
Your dime is no better than my liberal ten cents. My ten cents contributes to the same schools, law enforcement, public hospitals, transportation, post office, roads and highways, firefighters, military, and other social services, as your dime does. But if your recentment is that your dime should not march in the direction of minorities in temporary need, that is a different story.
As for your 65% conviction statement, I have to understand that you believe, with a strengh of 65%, that "these poeple" ( Romneys 47% maybe?) are here to stay. Well, thanks but no thanks! We don't need your 65%. You can keep your dime too.
Some people cannot escape from their stereotypical snarkiness and bullying mentality. Thank God they are circumcribed to a few of them, but are still pesteringly coming across as if they are the representatives of the majority of levelheaded conservatives, which they are not. They have the tendency to highjack patriotism, freedom, morality, the second ammendment, the Bible and even God... and then jump on their high horses to proclaim a crusade for rightgeousness: "The G D tyrannical liberals are coming..."
They revere evangelical figures who had traditionaly organized vigils of prayers all across America asking God for Obama to be defeated. God, in his infinite wisdom, and with the helped of the majority of American voters gave that sweet VICTORY to Obama, not only once but twice: " THE LIBERALS HAVE IT".
As the conservative party is a shrinking party, and the liberals are "returning from Canada", we liberas will have another sweet victory with "that socialist" Hillary!
The good republican party of the old days has been destroyed by a minority of rabid, full of hatred members. The only thing they can do to save themselves is to apply "miracle grow"... I guess this is something they can pray for, cling to it and hope for the best! Remember, horse manure will not do it!
OK, Im just trying to tease some bullies who, because of their hatred for decent liberal Americans can not stand the reality of current and irreversible American sociocultural, historical changing events. They just cannot stand the truth! The so call "tyrannical G D liberals" are not jus coming. They are here to stay... to grow, to win! Now that's a real miracle happening, right in front of your incredulous eyes. Keep praying my friends...and God speed!
The second ammendment is the law of the land. Many liberals and conservative alike support it as decided in Heller. Justice Scalia, hardly a liberal, spelled out in no uncertain terms, the limitations of the second ammendment. He was very clear that the "tyranny" theory has no legal basis, on the contrary, to try to overturn an elected government under the presumption of tyranny ( without voting) could very fast escalate to treason. To my knowledge there is no conservative movement organizing a logistic to prepare its citizens to fight tyranny by violent means. Wait, I believe there was a group of nuts in northern Idaho...no, sorry, there are hundreds of organizations all over the country with such radical ideas. I don't believe for a minute that serious conservatives support these groups.
As a Physician concerned about the health of my veterans, political believes has never been an issue. My support to all of them is 100%, regardless! Based on political persuations it is safe to assume that half of the active military and veterans are liberals. They believe that, although still supporting the second ammendment, the tyranny theory which suposedly gives them the right to start shooting tyrannic government officials is naive at best. Don't shoot, vote!
The USA will never be defeated because the USA Government has the mighties military force in the history of world. Yes, It's actually paid for by the People's tax money. It is so mighty that even when all the aggrieved, armed extremist, second ammendment lovers in the country declare "tyrany", they would not have a chance agains the US Marines, Army, Navy and Air Force. Who will be the one declaring tyrany? The NRA president or the GOP president? Maybe Rush or Glenn, or maybe Ted Nugent? Do they have a plan or a strategy to fight the "tyranic" US Goverment? Well, I do believe that the FBI has indeed a plan to crush such a movement way before the military takes over. Not too long ago Mr. Nugent, a second ammendment against tyrany theorist, had to spend quite a few thousand dollars in legal fees after the FBI was all over him for making violent threats agains US government officials. He is lucky he is not in Federal prison! He is still under survailance, though.
A more civil alternative to prevent tyrany is what Democracy offers to all Americans, which is the voting process. Stay civil, my friend... and avoid trouble!
Letting others know ahead of time before pronouncing a "tongue in cheek" statement is incongruous with its main intention. In other words it is an oxymoronic proposition. I certainly disagree with me being condescending to anyone, but if others cease the moment to gain galantry and promptly calling it the day, this is OK with me.
Just read the last 2 sentences of my post above!
We in this country have the best doctors, hospitals and medical technology in the world. Sadly we do not have the best medical care in the world as we should. We do have the most expensive medial care in the world, indeed. It is ironic that right inside this country, the US military and the VA hospital and clinic system has the best templates for socialized medicine there is and both institutions are are incredibily cost efffective. For the most part they have managed to keep private insurances and expensive pharmaceuticals out of the way. These 2 institutions ( the military and the VA) are the only ones in the world with fully computerized medical records. We know how to do it best, but we must do it the US military and the VA system way. With these templates the Affordable Care Act could be improved, and be transitioned into a more solvent, free from private, expensive medical insurances. Corrupt politicians need to go as well.
Barracuda, insinuations of physical violence are not allowed in a civil, public debate. You will have to give a good answer to the Police when they knock at your door. In sequitur, my friendly lawyer will be glad write you a lovely letter! This is the real world, my friend!
Loplover, just the other day (in history 100 years is nothing), blacks could not vote, women were not allowed to vote. Right up until 1955 Puertoricans were segregated in the US military. Until recently women were not allowed to obtain membership at the Elks club! In many ways gays are still marginalized from the American mainstream society. But we have achieved many victories with incredible sacrifices, sweat and blood, and we ain't goin' back! Oh, no...And this time, more than ever the poetry of the soul will say it better: "Like the tree that's planted by the water, we will not be moved".
In your honor we could call it after you: " Mr. Bizarre Way", after all it is your preferred word, the one you toss around like idiomatic IEDs, to cover up for your lack of originality. One way only, please!
