Where will you get stuck?

Quote taken out of content?

You know, MARRIAGE, if you make the most of it, you study hard and you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in DIVORCE COURT.

You know, RELIGION, if you make the most of it, you study hard and you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in PURGATORY.

You know, PARENTHOOD, if you make the most of it, you study hard and you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in JUVENILLE HALL.

You know, EDUCATION, if you make the most of it, you study hard and you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in IRAQ.

Hmmm... maybe it WAS a funny joke??

We Will Always Remember

We will always remember and honor those who have fallen due to evil that attacked our country in order to destroy the freedoms we have and cherish.

Though the twin towers stand no more, Americans stand together in remembrance. Although we don't all agree with current issues, we can all agree that five years ago was a horrible day in American history... not due to us, but instead due to what others did to us.

Oh... and if my remembering in reverence doesn't make a point... maybe this thought to the terrorists will!

My Capitalistic View Point :o)

I thought about all the turmoil in the world today and how it sometimes feels like it's the "worse" time to be alive. It's a lot like the thoughts teens have when they say "my life is worse than anyone else's"... or when a woman say "she's so much prettier than I'll ever be".

Note: I don't think this is the worse time to be alive... just the most interesting. :O)

There are hard times for different people and different countries all through history. So I wonder... is our time the hardest? We have running water, electricity, electronic entertainment coming out our ears, autos, planes, plentiful food. What's so hard about now?

Perhaps it's two fold:

1) we want so much to be important in life... to be "somebody" that when we fall short of where we thought we would be, we feel sorry for our self and think "whoa is me".

2) Technology will be our downfall. Okay... so that may seem dramatic, but it may come true some day. We have the ability to do so much good, but instead we sit back and watch as terrorists destroy freedoms across the globe. How do I think technology will be the end-all? Because technology is not only for the "good-guys"... it's equally available to the "bad-guys". So in actuality... it's not technology... it's the people using it.

So I'm pondering tonight... what can I do to make myself important so I don't become the ultimate whiner and how can we destroy those who wish to destroy our freedom. For me, I need to participate in our capitalistic society and become an entrepreneur. As for the nation... I suggest the same thing my boyfriend suggests... carpet bombing!

Valedictorian's - Ethics vs. the world

You know... every now and then I have to add a little "you've got to be kidding" to my chronicles.

Why are schools taking the microphones away from their own valedictorian's who happen to mention or thank God for their successes in life? Or for mentioning that they haven't received the best education because they aren't taught about ethics.

It doesn't matter if it's God or Buddha... why are we restricted in mentioning that higher power we each may or may not feel deep inside that gives us lift and encouragement. Hell... it could be a stuffed frog or a statue of Elvis.

What really gets me is that if someone stood up there and DID say that a stuffed frog or Elvis helped get them where they are, blah, blah, blah... they would probably get applauded for being unique and daring. But mention God and LOOK OUT... now we're pushing the envelope way too far.

Funny... imagine how our laws, constitution, amendments, etc. would sound if we were to start over from the very beginning TODAY.

We'd all be wearing t-shirt that read Gays are Great, God is dead and Killing is Cool. Ironically, I could care less if someone is gay or God fearing or not... although I do have issues with those who kill others, but when it comes to things like abortion, I feel it should be taken to the people and voted upon; but my personal belief is that it's a decision a grown adult should be able to make in the first trimester. But that's just my personal opinion. :)

(I'm one of those people who lean more conservative but not in every venue and not hard-core)

What I would like to point out is this... I'm not necessarily a Christian myself; I believe there is something/someone who is a greater power than I, but I have yet to determine what he/she/it is.

Some people who are reading this will either a) immediately seek me out to convert me to Christianity or b) seek me out to call me a free thinker who needs to get far away from God and the like.

I hate people like that... and I'm sure HATE qualifies me for a 10 year time-out while child molesters get a slap on the wrist and a court hearing where-in the parents must pay for not allowing the criminal MORE time with their child.

Society is backwards... and people are beginning to open their eyes and see the truth. In an effort to bring more to their side, those who are making these poor decisions and pushing us are only making us go further and further away.

I am my own person... oh... and America is great!! :)

In light of the recent appeals court ruling in California, with respect to the Pledge of Allegiance, the following recollection from Senator John McCain is very appropriate.

"The Pledge of Allegiance" - by Senator John McCain

As you may know, I spent five and one half years as a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War. In the early years of our imprisonment, the NVA kept us in solitary confinement or two or three to a cell. In 1971, the NVA moved us from these conditions of isolation into large rooms with as many as 30 to 40 men to a room.

This was, as you can imagine, a wonderful change and was a direct result of the efforts of millions of Americans on behalf of a few hundred POWs 10,000 miles from home.

One of the men who moved into my room was a young man named Mike Christian. Mike came from a small town near Selma, Alabama. He didn't wear a pair of shoes until he was 13 years old. At 17, he enlisted in the US Navy. He later earned a commission by going to Officer Training School. Then he became a Naval Flight Officer and was shot down and captured in 1967. Mike had a keen and deep appreciation of the opportunities this country and our military provide for people who want to work and want to succeed.

As part of the change in treatment, the Vietnamese allowed some prisoners to receive packages from home. In some of these packages were handkerchiefs, scarves and other items of clothing.

Mike got himself a bamboo needle. Over a period of a couple of months, he created an American flag and sewed it on the inside of his shirt. Every afternoon, before we had a bowl of soup, we would hang Mike's shirt on the wall of the cell and say the Pledge of Allegiance.

I know the Pledge of Allegiance may not seem the most important part of our day now, but I can assure you that--in that stark cell--it was indeed the most important and meaningful event.

One day, the Vietnamese searched our cell, as they did periodically, and discovered Mike's shirt with the flag sewn inside, and removed it.

That evening they returned, opened the door of the cell, and for the benefit of all of us, beat Mike Christian severely for the next couple of hours. Then, they opened the door of the cell and threw him in. We cleaned him up as well as we could.

The cell in which we lived had a concrete slab in the middle on which we slept. Four naked light bulbs hung in each corner of the room.

As I said, we tried to clean up Mike as well as we could. After the excitement died down, I looked in the corner of the room, and sitting there beneath that dim light bulb with a piece of red cloth, another shirt and his bamboo needle, was my friend, Mike Christian. He was sitting there with his eyes almost shut from the beating he had received, making another American flag. He was not making the flag because it made Mike Christian feel better. He was making that flag because he knew how important it was to us to be able to pledge our allegiance to our flag and country.

So, the next time you say the Pledge of Allegiance, you must never forget the sacrifice and courage that thousands of Americans have made to build our nation and promote freedom around the world. You must remember our duty, our honor, and our country.

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

American Suicide

Wherever you stand, please take the time to read this; it ought to scare the pants off you!

We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Hansen Davis talked about his latest book, "Mexifornia," explaining how immigration - both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.

Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, "If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that 'An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.'"

"Here is how they do it," Lamm said: "First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country." History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: "The histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy." Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans.".

Lamm went on: Second, to destroy America, "Invent 'multiculturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.

Third, "We could make the United States an 'Hispanic Quebec' without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: "The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together."
Lamm said, "I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities."

"Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school."

"My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology.' I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population."

"My sixth plan for America's downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other - that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common Language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. "E. Pluribus Unum" --From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'Unum,' we will balkanize America as surely as Kosovo."

"Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits; make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity.' I would find a word similar to 'heretic' in the 16th century - that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobe' halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multi-culturism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology,' I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them."

In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said,. "Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis's book "Mexifornia." His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America. deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book."

There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate 'diversity.' American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America - take note of California and other states - to date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell's book "1984." In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: "War is peace," "Freedom is slavery," and "Ignorance is strength."

Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don't get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path especially The American Dream.

If you care for and love our country as I do, take the time to pass this on just as I did for you. NOTHING is going to happen if you don't except one day, we may all wake up too late.

A Cat's Diary

Day 183 of my captivity.

My captors continued to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects.

They dine lavishly on fresh meat while I am forced to eat dry cereal.

The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape and the mild satisfaction I get from clawing the furniture. Tomorrow I may eat another house plant.

Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet while they were walking almost succeeded. Maybe I should try this at the top of the stairs .

In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors; I once again induced myself to vomit on their favorite chair. I must try this on their bed.

Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body in an attempt to make them aware of what I am capable of and to try to strike fear into their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good little kitty cat I was. This is not working according to plan.

There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was placed in solitary confinement throughout the event. However, I could hear the noise and smell the food. More important, I overheard that my confinement was due to my powers of inducing something called "allergies." Must learn what this is and how to use it to my advantage.

I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and maybe snitches. The dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to return. He is obviously a half-wit.

The bird, on the other hand, has got to be an informant. He speaks with them regularly and I am certain he reports my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal room, his safety is assured. But I can wait.

Nobel Peace Winning Blog ... NOT!

So... I heard that ANY idiot who can write three sentences is able to have a blog where-in they can make money and expect the Nobel Peace Prize from their ingenious ramblings of unintelligent crap.

Am I one of those?

I suppose I can only hope that others of my own level of ingenious crap tossing will agree, help spread the word and worship me as I worship myself. Wait... scratch that last part... self-worship can only lead to self-pleasuring; and I don't want to lose my eye-sight.

The Virgin Connie Swail

I usually keep politics out of my personal space (ie The Phoenix Chronicles)... but lately, I'm beginning to wonder what the HELL is going on!

My question for the day is this... has it always been like this? I thought the civil war ended in 1865 (and yes... I did have to google that date). Maybe so much crap is happening in so many different areas of politics that I'm feeling the bombs splatting on my brain.

War, gas, immigration, hurricanes, racial cards and racial hate, Hilary, Bush... I'm beginning to think it's one giant conspiracy against the average American citizen.

Maaaaaaaaaaaybe the politicians have to sign a top-secret unnnnn-breakable contract stating they will help put everyone who is NOT a politician (or Hollywood freak show) into straight-jackets in order to get elected. But first... they must undergo sacrificing the Virgin Connie Swail.

[so long as the Virgin Connie Swail agrees to a vaginal exam to prove she's a virgin while admitting she watches gay porn, eats raw meat, hates war mongers, agrees to send her first born child into combat, goes to a pro-life and pro-choice protest and votes repubocrat]

They just can't get along...

Bomb them to hell or get the hell out.
Send them home or give them a home... lock the borders or give everyone a key.
Create natural disasters or invent a plastic bubble.
Toss in the racial card when someone says "boo" and hate everyone who isn't wearing the same skin.

How about this...

Put Hilary and Bush (and a few other current political nightmares) into a rocket ship... One of these days... ONE OF THESE DAYS... POW...

I support our president... but these days he seems to sway with whatever direction the wind happens to blow. And yes... I do have my opinions about many different subjects... I'm just tired of those on one side making those on the other come to a point where they HAVE to stand up and shout in order to truly be heard.

And now... for something completely different... I have a hemroid!
