You know who commits a lot of crimes?
Don’t let those modest clothes and pious, friendly attitudes fool you. Underneath it all, the Amish are a seething, rage-filled organized crime syndicate, just waiting to catch one of your kids alone and off guard. Waiting outside their schools to fill their little systems with one of the most horrible substances imaginable. Yes, the Amish are peddling….
Worse than crack cocaine or crystal meth, raw milk, or ‘raw’ as it’s called on the streets, is now the number one substance of abuse among children aged five to twelve. Most of these kids have ‘cool’ parents, who claim that raw is good for their kids, and that as long as they’re drinking it at home, they’re not hurting anyone else. As a matter of fact, most child raw addicts were turned on to the substance by the very people who are supposed to be protecting them–mom and dad.
Raw is such a rampant epidemic that the Feds have taken notice.
Recently, a small Amish farm in Pennsylvania was raided by the FDA and a group of US Marshals for selling raw to willing consumers. Some time in April of 2010, at about 5 AM, these Amish ‘dealers’ were put under the heat lamps and pumped for information, much like the cows they own are pumped for their ‘product’. According to terrified onlookers, this is how it went down:
Feds: “Where’s the juice, Big M?” (a.k.a. Malachai, whose name we changed to protect his family) “We know you’ve been selling it across state lines. That’s a federal crime, beardy boy.”
Big M: “We don’t abideth by your modern laws, G-Man. So shoveth thee off my farm. And taketh Food and Drug man with thee. That raw is for personal use.”
But alas, Malachai was outnumbered, and outsmarted. The Feds eventually found vats of raw, unprocessed milk labeled for sale to different cities around the country. The Feds had found their smoking gun. It was all they needed to gain a conviction.
The charge: Posession with intent to distribute…raw milk.
Malachai was done for. However, this was not to say that he wasn’t given a chance to change his ways. The FDA had even sent him a letter, telling him to cease and desist. But poor Malachai was just too far gone to think about consequences.
Let this be a lesson to you, boys and girls, about the dangers of messing with the federal government. Sure, you’ll have strong teeth and bones. But if you drink raw milk, you pay the price. Just ask Malachai.
I can’t help but wonder how the next “this is your brain” commercials will play out.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.“
That, in a nutshell folks, is the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. It’s a right that
every United States citizen has, including you. A right that allows a person to defend him/herself using firearms. One I whole-heartedly support.
Not to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but many liberal presidential administrations have tried to regulate the Second Amendment to the point of near non-existence. It’s been a fight between the liberals and conservatives for a long time. The right wing says we need our guns to defend ourselves against intruders and tyrannical government, the left says “guns kill people, get rid of them”.
Though many tactics have been used over the years by each side to try to implement their policies on gun control, there’s one group that has crossed the line. The Obama administration is that group.
The story is a bit convoluted, so I’ll start at the beginning.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, there is a drug war going on in Mexico. The Mexican drug cartels are killing hundreds of innocent people every week in a turf war of drastic proportions. Many of the weapons used in this southern war include military-grade machine guns, grenades and ammunition; though some of these weapons were acquired from countries like Guatemala and Nicaragua, most come from the United States, verified via serial number.
The cartels have grown so powerful that the Mexican government and law enforcement have been rendered powerless. The nefarious cartels have even begun invading the United States, coercing American teens and street gangs to become hitmen and distributors for their enterprises.
I mention the Mexican drug war because it’s the newest reason for arguing in favor of tighter gun control laws here in the States. Supposedly, the cartels have been coming across the US border to buy their guns from small, privately owned gun stores. At least that’s what president Obama told America.
Here’s the quote, via Fox News
“More than 90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States, many from gun shops that line our border,” president Obama said in February 2009.
Now I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in a gun store. I’ve never seen military-grade weapons or grenades for sale. The ATF would have a field day with any privately owned store that attempted to sell such items.
As it turns out, our illustrious president told a bold-faced lie. And thanks to Wikileaks, we now know the truth.
Leaked cables revealed that not only did the Obama administration know where the weapons came from prior to the public statement from the president, but proved that it was our own government who sold them. The Department of Defense and the State Department were the “mom and pop” gun stores who sold military-grade weapons to Mexico.
Weapons that are now in the hands of ruthless killers.
President Obama wasn’t the only individual who was in on the lie. US Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew the score too.
Of course the Obama administration will argue that they didn’t sell the guns directly to the cartels, but to the Mexican government; the bottom line is they lied to the American people about selling the weapons in the first place. This is an administration that simply cannot be trusted.
The big question is: Why isn’t the Obama administration being held accountable?
Not only for their lies, but for their actions. Our government knowingly sold guns to a government that lacks security and is rife with corruption. Now those guns are being used by criminals to commit unspeakable acts against innocent people. And those acts are rapidly migrating north of the US/Mexico border.
But it’s a crime for United States citizens to sell guns across state lines.
Maybe Obama has loftier goals than just disarming American citizens and depriving us of our Second Amendment rights.
Why else would he provide a means to attack innocent Mexican citizens, let alone his fellow countrymen?
Hey there boys-n-girls, I’ve got a joke for you.
What do you get when you cross a Mexican with an octopus?
“Uh…I dunno. What?”
I don’t know either, but I bet it sure is good at picking lettuce.
So. Are you offended?
Now take a look at this short video.
How about now?
I know the audio isn’t very good, so I’ll explain to you what’s going on here.
That video is a recording of democratic California congresswoman Loretta Sanchez being interviewed on a liberal radio show, talking about her experiences meeting members of the Tea Party. She’s using a southern accent to represent, well, apparently all of them.
Here’s a transcript of what she said:
Sanchez: “Hey, what’s your name?”
Tea Party member: “My name is M-O-E.”
Sanchez: “Ok Moe. Moe-ster. How you doing baby? What are we going to do today? What’s your interest? What can we work on together?”
Tea Party member: “Well, it’s unconstitutional.”
So not only are all Tea Party members southern, but I guess they’re stupid too, because all they can say, according to Sanchez, is that everything is unconstitutional. If I were Sanchez, I’d bet they all have stills in their backyards and bring gallons of that “white lightnin” to every one of their get-togethers.
Out in the sticks, of course. With a few banjos and some corn-cob pipes.
Now are you offended?
Well, according to society, no matter what has been said or done, if you’re a Caucasian, you shouldn’t be.
Let me rephrase that. You’re not allowed to be. You should just take it as a joke.
So let’s turn the tables for a minute.
What if, say, Mitt Romney had told that Mexican joke I mentioned above at a campaign function?
“Oh no he di-int!”
That’s right ladies and gentlemen, it would be ‘Hands Across America’. Every Latino worth his salt would be out the next day, protesting at his state legislature. And it would make national news.
Heck, ol’ Mitt would probably earn himself a visit from the ACLU.
But what about Sanchez? What’s going on with that?
Since I’m guessing that this post is the first you’ve heard of the story, not much.
Hmmm. Seems like I’ve mentioned this type of politically correct behavior before.
This is how political correctness tears society apart. There’s one set of rules for one group, and another set for others. With both sides being at odds all the time, somebody is going to feel neglected and put-upon when all is said and done.
Politically correct behavior is insane. We’re like a bunch of little kids, getting mad at other kids for calling us names. Like we’re five years old or something.
“Mooooom. Jimmy called me a dog-faced booger eater.”
You know what my mom would have said?
“Call him one back.”
I would have, and we would have left it at that.
America, we won’t make it as a nation divided. It’s impossible. So let’s put aside these petty differences and focus on the important things in life. God, family, and country.
For God’s sake, whatever happened to the old “Sticks and Stones” mantra??
If you walk away from this post having learned nothing else, please take this saying to heart:
I wonder who said that?
I visited Mexico once when I was a little kid. My dad, brothers, sister and I were down in southern
California one summer visiting my uncle who lived in Anaheim, when my dad got this adventurous notion and declared that he’d like to see another country.
So off we went, to the land of awesome burritos and the birthplace of dollar Corona beers.
When we arrived at the border crossing, just south of San Diego, we all thought it was so cool that we were going to be in another country. We were going to be the envy of our classmates, who we’d presumed had never been out of their own neighborhoods, much less the United states. The border guard checked my dad’s driver’s license and in a few quick seconds, we arrived in Tijuana.
My father stopped just inside the border to get his bearings, and almost immediately we were approached by a Mexican fellow who began furiously washing our windshield with a newspaper. Dad tried to politely explain that we didn’t need our windshield washed, but the guy just continued, and when he was done, he held out his hand and smiled. We gave him a dollar, he nodded in thanks, and moved on to the next sucker.
Then came the tour guides. In case you didn’t know, almost everyone at the US/Tijuana border is a tour guide. We had at least four people approach our car, telling us they could take us to see all the sites that their beautiful country had to offer.
All this seemed a little strange to us Americans. When the last of the tour guides left, dad turned the car around and we headed back the United States. We’d seen enough. It was actually kind of scary being in another country for the first time, considering the experience we’d all just had.
This was back in the mid 1980s, when Mexico had a government that could halfway control its citizens. While we were there, we didn’t witness any kidnappings or drug deals. There weren’t gangs of cartel members with AK-47’s trying to carjack us or force us into being mules.
But all that has changed.
If you’ve turned on the news at any time in the last couple years, you know about the drug wars going on south of the US border. Hundreds of innocent people are being killed every week by the cartels, who have almost created a state of anarchy in a once peaceful country.
So what. That’s happening in Mexico, not here.
Nice attitude, Zippy.
But you’re wrong.
According to an article I read on AOL news today, the Mexican drug cartels are invading our country en masse as I write this post. While the government is busy arguing the politics surrounding illegal immigration, Mexican gangsters are growing marijuana in our national parks, and setting up intricate interstate drug trafficking routes that span the country. Drug intelligence officials say that cartels have infiltrated at least 230 cities across the US.
Along with the drugs, these cartels bring cash. Tons of it.
And it’s burning a hole in their collective pocket.
To get rid of some of that blood money, these cartels are hiring American teenagers to be hitmen for them. They’re paying American gangs to be their distribution networks. And they’re buying more guns. Military-issue assault rifles to be exact.
“Holy crap. This is an epidemic. Call out the National Guard! Let’s get some soldiers to the border to stop this RIGHT NOW!”
Hold on there, Rambo. We can’t do that. Most of our troops are overseas fighting for oil, instead of being here at home protecting American citizens. And while the cat’s away, the mice will play.
So, you may be wondering, has Washington even noticed?
Of course they have. Don’t you have any faith in our corrupt political leaders?
They noticed enough to say that according to federal standards, the Mexican cartels’ actions don’t
If over 34,000 dead Mexican citizens, who died because of the violence just beyond our southern border, doesn’t qualify as an emergency, I don’t know what does. And now that crap is migrating north, into our own backyards. Even more of a reason to be alarmed.
Our government isn’t even worried about the cartels per se. They’re only worried about the illegal flow of weapons into Mexico. Well they won’t have to worry about that much any more, because the cartels have obviously found a new home. One with free medical benefits, food stamps, free housing, and more new customers than you can shake a stick at.
I can see only one solution to this problem. And it needs to be implemented immediately.
Bring our troops home and have them seal off the borders. Send our soldiers into Mexico to help quell the violence that will one day overrun our country.
We would be better off helping our neighbors than occupying a country that doesn’t want our assistance.
Heck, it’s even been rumored that Hezbollah, a militant Muslim extremist group, is using Mexican drug smuggling routes to enter the United States.
So where do you think we should focus our efforts?
Ok, all of you commercial watchers and reality show addicts. Whose slogan is that?
I’ll give you a hint. They make light bulbs. And microwaves. Even refrigerators.
Last hint: This company was bailed out by the government with taxpayer money, sent thousands of high-paying jobs overseas, and made $14 billion in profits it 2010.
Oh! Oh! Pick me! I know!
The answer to today’s question is General Electric, more commonly known as G.E. Founded in 1892, the now multi-billion dollar conglomerate produces common household appliances, as well as engines for fighter and commercial jets. They also *ahem* designed the leaking nuclear reactors for the Japanese Fukushima nuclear power plant.
As if you didn’t already know that.
“Ok Sonny Jim, since you’re writing about them, they must be inherently evil. What did they do? Help the Nazis? Fund terrorism? Conduct electrical experiments on blind lambs?”
Worse. They took food out of the mouths of millions of Americans. By not paying one red cent in taxes in 2010. In fact, G.E. and its legion of tax lawyers managed to finagle a $3.2 billion tax credit out of the American government last year.
They didn’t pay anything in 2009 either. And it was all perfectly legal.
“What the hell?”
It seems that if you want to avoid paying taxes in America, but still sell your goods to its citizens, all you have to do is hire a bunch of lawyers, then move half of your operations overseas. In effect, they hung around until the going got tough. Right before the recession hit, they laid off 21,000 workers, dumped a bunch of toxic waste, and skipped town.
This is where things get really stupid. After leaving a gaping hole in America’s economy and its workforce, CEO of General Electric Jeffery Immelt, was appointed by president Obama to become our nation’s “job czar”, for lack of a better term. Gee, that wasn’t premeditated or anything.
“Here ya go, Jeff. I know you bailed on America in her time of need, and I’d like to reward you for your cowardly efforts. You think maybe we could get Taiwan to train the Marines, you know, to save a couple bucks?”
Our founding fathers would be rolling over in their graves.
I’ve been saying for years that America needs to refer back to the KISS way of doing business (that’s Keep It Simple Stupid for those of you who don’t know). Every corporation and individual should pay a flat percentage when it comes to taxes. There would be no more loopholes or confusing tax law. We could close down the IRS (please keep your applause to a minimum) and retrain the agents to be useful government employees. And extraordinarily wealthy companies like G.E. would be held accountable when April rolled around.
It’s only fair.
They say that there are only two certainties in life: death and taxes.
Well, only one if you’re rich.
A banana. PB & J. Some chips. Maybe a cookie. And a box of apple juice.
“Hmmm…What are…things you eat for lunch at school when you’re a kid?”
“Oh, I’m sorry Janet. The answer we’re looking for is ‘things you eat for lunch at school when you’re a kid unless you attend Chicago’s Little Village Academy.’ Looks like Sonny Jim takes the lead.”
“In your face, Janet!”
Mocking facial expressions and lewd hand gestures ensue.
Elsa Carmona is the principal of Little Village Academy in Chicago. Along with her teaching degree, Carmona also has a master’s degree in food sciences, an associate’s in human development, and devotes her most of her spare time to the nutrition research program at the Mayo Clinic. She really is quite gifted.
Oh, and she has one more degree. A doctorate in BS from What Gives You The Right university.
It’s in Texas. Google it if you don’t believe me.
No, Ms. Carmona doesn’t have any of the degrees I mentioned. As far as I can tell, she’s just a regular elementary school principal. What she does have though, is quite a high level of audacity. Principal Carmona has banned home-made lunches from her school’s cafeteria.
“Yeah, well stranger things have happened.”
The fact that one principal, in charge of one school, decides that she’s the queen of nutrition and knows more about what’s best for her students than their parents do doesn’t surprise me.
What gets me is that it’s happening in other places too.
A school in Tucson, Arizona won’t let kids bring anything for lunch that contains refined sugar, white flour, or any other kind of processed food. A few schools in New York have banned cupcakes. Schools in numerous locations throughout the country ban their students from eating take-out for lunch.
“They’re only doing this because of the childhood obesity epidemic. Leave them alone…”
No, I don’t think I will.
Childhood obesity starts at home, and that’s where it needs to be dealt with. Rather than banning sack lunches or certain foods from school cafeterias, maybe the district should offer some educational resources for the parents. Or at the very least, if the schools are going to institute a ban like this, they need to be chipping in to help finance these meals.
The bottom line is, schools don’t have the right to tell parents what to feed their kids. Granted, many parents probably need to step it up in the nutrition department. But outlawing cupcakes, and the ‘eat school lunches or go hungry’ mandates infringe on some very basic rights, not only of the parents, but of the students as well.
We need to remember the function of public schools in our society; to teach our children basic academic skills. Schools are not daycares, nor the teachers nursemaids. It is not the responsibility of public schools to raise our kids or monitor what they consume.
Stories like this make me wonder what’s next. Nightly visits from school officials, making sure mom didn’t undercook the chicken? Frisking students for Pixie Stix at the door? Mandatory hypodermic broccoli injections?
I can just see the headlines now.
“NATO Forces Losing Ground As The Great Twinkie Revolt Of 2011 Rages On”
We’re gonna need another federal stimulus package to get through this one.
Political correctness. It’s the bane of our society. People who are politically correct are hyper sensitive about any topic that they encounter, whether it deserves that kind of attention or not. As my grandma would say, they’re worried about something that “doesn’t amount to a hill of beans” when it comes right down to it.
Heck, I remember back in the day, when granny used to….
“C’mon Sonny Jim, step down off the soapbox and get to the point.”
Ah yes. Political correctness.
I have a question for you, my fine reader. Is it possible to be reverse politically correct? Watch this video, and afterwards, I’ll explain what I mean.
After watching this video myself, I believe I’ve come up with a new phenomenon. Since I discovered it, it’s only right that I should be the one to name it. Thus, I christen my new discovery “reverse political correctness”.
As you may or may not know, the dark skinned fellow in the video, Bobby Ghosh, is the deputy international editor of Time magazine. And he has committed the first act of reverse political correctness known to man.
Now, Bobby struck me as a regular politically correct person. I think it’s a job requirement for employment with any modern media outlet these days. Especially if you’re an international deputy editor. Wow, what a title!
But ol’ Bobby Ghosh proved me wrong. In case you missed it, Ghosh goes on record as saying (and I’m paraphrasing here) that burning a Qu’ran is much worse than burning a Bible, because clearly the Qu’ran is written by God, while the Bible is written by men.
Did you see it? Right there. Reverse political correctness!
This truly is a proud day for me.
I’ve already planned on how to spend the money I make from this discovery. But that’s a post for another day…
Of course, I’m being facetious. Reverse political correctness doesn’t really exist. Sadly, double standards do exist, and not in favor of Christians.
When Terry Jones burned a Qu’ran back in March of this year, there was international outrage. Heck, there are still protests being held and people being hurt in the Middle East to this day over the event. The sad thing is that there seems to be more media coverage on the burning of an inanimate object than of the people actually being hurt by the protests.
Apparently it’s ok to say derogatory or ignorant things about Christians or the Bible. And these comments don’t fall in the category of “not being politically correct”. If they did the media would be in a frenzy over the above video, like they are when anyone says anything negative about any other religion/race/lifestyle/etc. that society deems a protected commodity.
Instead, this video had a lousy 2000 views last time I checked. It barely even rated an obscure news article.
In the end, I’d have to say grandma was right. As far as protecting peoples’ rights goes, political correctness hasn’t “amounted to a hill of beans.”
In fact, the protesters in Afghanistan burned more Qu’rans than Terry Jones ever thought of destroying. In protest of burning a Qu’ran.
Figure that one out.
