Press can't let abuse story go - The Washington Times: Nation/Politics - May 21, 2004

What side is the Media really on?

The terrorist's side, they will look for any opening, real or imagined, build it up to be something it isn't just to make America look bad.

Who's side are they really on?

Ah this makes sense, let's steal from the future, like when Al Gore sold the ALL THE OIL RESERVES to his father, in the last presidency, for which we suffered majorly from.

Oh wait, we're not trying to help the country, we want it to go down the tubes, right? That's the goal of the Liberal Democrats. Ignore what they say, and pay attention to their actions/votes.

Their words say, save the economy.

Their actions say, let's sacrifice any economic future and ability to be independent of oil-providing countries.

Remember the big oil crunch in California 2-years ago?

Well California had asked Texas to skip it's own oil regulations to help California, even though California would not drop it's own oil regulations.

There are two things we can do to improve the oil economy:

1. De-regulate the fancy oil regulations, they just get in the way of having enough quantity of oil.

2. Build more refineries, but that would be pro-business, and we all know Liberal Democrats are anti-business.

So where does that leave us?

Democrats want to increase their unending demand for more oil, without being realistic in dropping unnecessary oil regulations.

Also they want to increase taxes and gas taxes to help pay for it.

So pay attention people, to the consequences for environmental controls.

I do understand the desire to protect and preserve the natural wonders of the world.

But we must face realities of what it takes to live in this world.

So let's build more refineries, de-regulate oil, drill for oil in Alaska.

Here again the consequences of stupid thinking, we really can not afford to rely on oil-providing nations, we must have our supply for emergencies.

Thank you, please comment here. Remember, let's focus on solutions, not blame-gaming.

Again this shows the failur of our education system. We need to evaluate based on merit, not seniority, not how they help us get funds, or how many books teachers write.

We need to go back to a meritocracy!

One Common Bond

I know it sounds like a term to start a war, but it's really been a slow casual to destory the fabric of America.

I am not saying all Liberal Democrats are evil. Just that their cause is the wrong cause.

Okay all of this started with the desire to help people and protect people from Government or Big Business. And as those problems went away, a new desire to get more votes went about.

So if they could not find problems to solve, they would have to create them.

Such as Racism, Homophobia, Welfare, Medicare, Healthcare are all issues Liberal Democrats have ridden and pushed to the hilt to stay in power. But if you look at the actual actions taken in those issues name, you'll be really shocked.

For example Racism, that is a very bad thing, and it's really hard to prevent, all you can really do is three things:

1. Educate people to treat each other equally.
2. Penalize people who discriminate in immoral ways. For example if two people are equally eligible, then discrimination is penalized. However there is a negative, that then bosses can't choose the people they want to hire. I am not saying it's always a good thing. But someone has to respect business needs to determine who they really want to hire.
3. Quota's don't work, they only allow people to be hired without merit, such as in the Jayson Blair case.

Now i myself know this from personal experience, I am a handicapped jewish person, with multiple handicaps. But do i want to be hired on basis of my handicaps? Hell no, that's the most demoralizing experience ever. I tried it several times, and i'd rather get a job based on merit, or no job. C'mon people don't we have any pride left?

I am honest here, I had a lot of struggle to get and keep jobs, just like the rest of you.

So racism is not something that can be switched on or off. It must be honestly addressed without getting heated about it.

Now let's talk about repayment based on prejudice that occured 2 centuries ago. I agree the past is not always a very respectable thing, but I find that the most negative approach towards being free and independent.

What America is so great about, not perfect, but great about. Is that anyone can come from anywhere, and work hard, find a living, and create a better, safer home and better future for themselves and their families then anywhere else.

All of us came from somewhere else, except American Indians. Which is okay, but then instead of focusing on bad crap from the past, we need to focus on the positive good things we can do now.

Also you are not African Americans, you are Americans, and I am very proud to call you fellow americans.

America is the home of the melting pot, where people of all cultures, come for one dream, one language, the dream of a better world for themselves and for their children/family.

We have to rediscover OUR COMMON BOND, that common thread that binds us.

We all experienced that in 911, that horrendous experience, and instead of us trying to follow that common bond and develop, we have become divisive and blameful.

Let's stop the blame, deal with the issues, and then move on.

In order for that to happen, we must become One Nation, One Dream, One Language.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
