We can’t be Kind-Of-Free

It was the early nineties and some of my teammates and I were in a van riding to a baseball game in Southern California.  I don’t remember how the conversation began but one of my teammates started in about no longer being black but rather an African-American. This was the new verbiage being introduced reportedly by Jesse Jackson. I liked my teammate. He was kind of a quiet person (my kind of guy) who also happened to not play very much.  I always felt for the guys who didn’t play much.  It wasn’t like they didn’t want to be out there but this was college athletics not Little League.  The best play because most coaches need to win to keep their jobs.

I listened until he finished and then told him he was wrong.  As stated earlier I liked my teammate.  This wasn’t one of those yelling at each other conversations but I had facts (or so I thought) and I stated them clearly.

I had taken an anthropology class and in the class we had been taught that there were three types of humans.

Caucasoids, Mongoloids, and Negroids, not black, white, brown, or African-American.

I’d been given just enough information to sound as though I knew what I was talking about.

In today’s world this is called “education” and as we know “education” and knowledge are two different things.

We are Homo sapiens.

Colloquially known as humans.

This doesn’t change regardless of the color of our skin, the size of our skulls, one’s like or dislike of certain foods, or our ability or inability to dance.

Races created because of sociological or “social construct theory” is pure propaganda otherwise Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner and Rachel Dolezal would both have created different “races”.

The conversation ended with my “facts”.  I truly believed everything I was saying (I’d been “educated”) and when you are using verbiage that others aren’t familiar with (cue Bernie Sanders followers) it’s pretty easy to sound as though you are right.  Furthermore I knew (on this I was correct) that African-American was not a new type of human, or a nationality, as there was no nation called the United States of Africa-America.

As college aged adults my teammate and I were both introduced to skin color bigotry.

Mine came from those who called themselves Professor.

His came from someone who called himself Reverend.

Is it any wonder most of have zero respect for many of our elders?

Whether it’s too many in the Catholic Church covering up sexual abuse (still happening), thousands of physicians medicating hang nails (still happening), or most of our politicians lying about EVERYTHING (still happening) the concept of fact, truth, respect, and ethics has disappeared a long time ago.

I digress.

As stated earlier my teammate and I were both given false verbiage based on the color of a human’s skin.  Sadly this has only gotten worse.

Examples?

Of course.

How about Latino?  When asked what a Latino is, you will hear it all, including it is a “culture”.

What do you mean by culture?

Many will answer, “It’s the language spoken, the food, the music, etc.  The “culture”.”

Okay, so then Latinos would speak Latin right?

“Uh no…they speak Spanish,” is the usual response.

Then why are they called Latinos?

This is usually followed by a blank stare or “they come from Latin America,” with an eye roll.

You mean Central America?  What about South America? What about Mexico?

Return of blank stare.

Let’s come back to that one.  How about this?  Are Brazilians Latino?

“Yes. Brazilians are Latino,” they answer emphatically.

You know Brazilians speak predominately Portuguese?

“Uh…no I didn’t know that.”

You also mentioned food.  What exactly do you mean by that?

“You know, beans, rice, salsa, guacamole, hispanic food.” (Incredibly these conversations happen every day.  In fact every single one of us has heard a version of it over the airwaves in America. Taco Bell tells us repeatedly to “Make a run for the border”)

I like and consume all of those things.  If I eat them am I a Latino?

“NO!”

What if I eat all of those things and speak Spanish am I now a Latino?

“NO!”

Why not?

“Because you are white.”

There we have it.

The term Latino is skin color bigotry.

It means brown skin (La Raza) and for those of you who are a bit skeptical, this type of conversation happens every day in homes, businesses, on busses, and most commonly on-line.  We hear it about hair straightening, rap lyrics, or the media trying to feed us that the “Chinese people are boiling mad because one of their own was dragged off of a plane”.

The individual dragged off the United plane was reportedly from Vietnam but I guess “they all look the same” to the press.

Hence the term Asian-American.

More skin color bigotry and completely false as there is no nation called the United States of Asia-America.

Everything I just stated is completely true but because too many Americans are infested with another form of skin color bigotry known as “White Guilt” (yes this is actually a title of a book) the United States is not only struggling as a country but as a People as well.

As Americans.

As Humans attempting to Be.

Skin color has nothing to do with success or failure regardless of your personal opinion.  If this were true humans would group themselves by their own skin color and live happily ever after.

Both of these issues are based on behavior, not the evolutionary process of proximity to the sun over tens if not hundreds of thousands of years, but it takes a willingness to embrace the truth to stop all this ridiculousness.

Truth.

Something that will not happen as long as we continue to hyphenate these United States.

If after all this you still choose to put African, Asian, Irish, Mexican, or Guatemalan before American I STRONGLY suggest you search out those continents or countries and live there.

This is a FREE society, as in you are FREE to leave, at any time.

Your presence isn’t required or needed.

If after all this, skin color is your primary issue, I STRONGLY suggest you search out countries with humans whom you believe look like you.

Regardless of your color there are lots of options.

Your Constitutional Rights will disappear, protection by the most powerful military in the world will hasten to exist, a job might be hard to come by and water might be scarce but the color of your skin won’t matter anymore.  Your life won’t get better because of it, as it is behavior that will still dictate this, but OUR lives in America will benefit, as your behavior, is removed.

If after all this you still choose to put Islam or Muslim in front of American I STRONGLY suggest you search out those countries that practice Sunni or Shiite Islam and are ruled by Sharia.  Your life will get dramatically worse as living under systemic oppression always has that effect but you can remove the American completely along with many of your “rights” as men, most of your “rights” as women and all of your Constitutional Rights as an American.

Finally if you choose to put Hispanic or Latino in front of American I STRONGLY suggest you stop as neither of these places are in existence.

Jesse Jackson is a bonafide moron to assume that only humans with black skin live on the continent of Africa but at least Africa can be found on a map.

The usage of Hispanic and Latino might be worse for those who use them, as they are both fictional labels created by hateful souls, whom have brainwashed too many humans, who are simply looking to meet their need to belong.

One last thought.  There’s no such thing as Native-American.

They’re called Chippewa, Seminole, Kickapoo, Apache, or wait for it…AMERICAN.

Hyphens are suppose to connect words, to bring ideas together, and by doing so, strengthen the concept.

They aren’t meant to be used to push the agenda of one by negating the other.

We can’t be Kind-Of-Free.

We are free or we are not.

We are Americans or we are not.

Freedom First.  Freedom Only.

America First.

AMERICAN ONLY.

Liberals in La La Land

Liberals before the Obama “red line” in Syria was enforced:

“Trump is a misogynistic, racist, homophobic, bigot who was elected because of Vladimir Putin.”

Liberals after:

“The bombs are beautiful (cue Brian Williams), Mr. Trump is now our President. Vladimir who?”

Liberals 24 hours later:

“Trump is getting us into a war with Russia.”

Liberals lost in space:

“Trump is wagging the dog.  I told you he was in Putin’s pocket.”

How about another?

Liberals on both coasts before an election on Tuesday to replace now CIA Director Mike Pompeo in the Kansas 4th Congressional District:

“We are winning and going to send a message to the hateful bigoted Trump!”

Liberals on both coasts after the election:

“The Republican candidate only won by seven points! We are on our way back!”

Once and for all it is time to proclaim that liberals are not Americans or sane.

Those that support La Raza, CAIR, Hamas, and create Sanctuary Cities to protect the free flow of human carnage through our open border by gangs like MS-13 are traitors and ignorant traitors at that.

Can’t we all just get along?

No.

I will never “get along” with child abuse, with rape, with human trafficking.

I will never “get along” with murder.

Benedict Arnold is probably the most famous American traitor of all time.  He wasn’t stupid.  He was ethically weak and because of this is now looked upon with scorn, at least by those of us who support America, and have heard of him.

Of course unlike brain dead Brian, Benedict Arnold was actually “under fire” and wounded in battle.

Something Williams and Hillary only dream of and then say out loud.

Liberals are stupid and I mean that in the strictest of definitions in that they are unable to learn.  What we have witnessed and continue to witness is the biological devolution of certain portions of the population in these United States.

A new version of Stockholm Syndrome has arrived due to too much tuning in, turning on, and dropping out combined with participation trophies and zero consequences.

They aren’t snowflakes.

They’re just flakes.

Then again how would a liberal know?

Punxsutawney Phil has a better understanding of the world.

Jason, you are being pretty Viagra on them right now.

I’m not being hard enough. (Thanks to the “mainstream media” and millions in advertising, I don’t have to explain that joke)

No American woman (or women in general) should ever support Islam.

No one who is homosexual should ever support Islam.

No one who is Jewish or connected to Judaism in any way should ever support Islam yet tens of millions of voting Americans who fall under these categories support the Party (Democratic) that supports Islam.

Let’s make this painfully clear.

Abortion is ILLEGAL under Islamic or Sharia Law yet that is the most important issue to tens of millions of Democratic voters.

Bueller? Bueller? Anyone? Anyone?

Can’t you just see it now?  Finally a hand is raised from the liberal brethren (look it up libs) with a quizzical stare.

“What is Sharia Law? Who is this Shari person?”

Progressives don’t know who “Shari” is, or why she has her own laws, but they can tell you all about Kanye and Kim because Enquiring Minds want to know.

If the concept of devolving hasn’t already been shown, the stupidity of wearing black masks and make believe vaginas (on their heads, obviously a health and human services class is needed for these poor souls), should be more than enough to group these cowards into the five cans short of a six pack, one fry short of a happy meal, or a sandwich short of a picnic crowd.

In other words utensils not needed for those who don’t understand opposable thumbs.

The black mask stick carriers were too embarrassed to show their faces (hope for them yet) whereas the make believe vagina enthusiasts were loud and proud and traipsing around, with the Material Girl and the less talented Judd sister, cheering on Like a Virgin’s call for murder.

Maybe they were practicing for their ultimate show, 72 at a time, as each Sunni or Shiite male arrives at the gates of Allah or the Eight Doors of Jannah.

Apparently eight is enough.

Where is Dick Van Patten when you need him? What about Adam Rich? How many more entertainment references can I put in this column?

Astonishingly enough this is reading like a stand up comedy routine and yet is putridly all TRUE.

Fortunately Hope, along with Obama, has left the building.

Thank you. Thank you very much.

Now am I thrilled with everything the President has done so far?

No I am not.

Keeping Comey is absurd.  Hiring Priebus was as well.

Choosing Paul Ryan over the Freedom Caucus probably won’t work.

Supporting Janet Yellen definitely will not.

Still let us remember who we are.

We are Americans.

We don’t hope.  We don’t wish.

We get things done.

So in celebration of getting things done let us remember why we elected Donald Trump.

“I will build a big beautiful wall and get rid of the bad hombres.”

Get er done Mr. President.

Get er done.

Firing with both fists

Courage is not assertion without fear.

Courage is assertion in spite of fear and comes in many forms, shapes, and sizes.

I was reminded of this a few days ago while having a conversation.

The individual I was speaking with was making jokes after receiving yet another round of chemotherapy.  Because this person is incredibly private and humble, and would be embarrassed by my words, I will respect their wishes of privacy and not use their name.

Their life on the other hand is one to share.

You see this is the kind of person who creates safe spaces with his presence.

Children and dogs love him because they instinctively know they are secure and protected.

This is the kind of person who enlisted in the Army at seventeen and became a medic.

Always looking out for others.

He owned businesses, raised a family, loves his children, grandchildren, and of course his wife.  He’d give you the shirt off his back, the money from his pocket, and has done so time and time again.

Of course if he was reading this now he wouldn’t understand what all the fuss was about and would say something like, “This is what we are supposed to do.  I’m supposed to work hard.  I’m supposed to raise my children and nobody else better be loving my wife.  You know what I’m saying?”

Yes my fellow American I am picking up what you are putting down.

He’d tell you that he isn’t special (he is) rather he is lucky.  Lucky to be a citizen of the greatest country ever.  Lucky to have had 69 years (and counting) on this Earth.  He sees his exhaustion, nausea, dizziness, and pain as a good sign that the chemo is working.

Not one complaint, not one bitter word, not a scintilla of why me?

Although he doesn’t eat sugar, and his appetite has almost disappeared, he still makes birthday cakes for loved ones.

The reason I am telling this story is to show the strength of the human spirit.

The strength of one man unwilling to bend.

Unwilling to break.

When he was told he had cancer his first sentence was “Great. When can we start doing what needs to be done.”

In boxing terms he bit down on his mouthpiece and lunged forward firing with both fists.

Cancer has no idea but it doesn’t have a chance.

It picked the wrong guy.

We have our own cancer in America these days.  It’s called liberalism.  It has overtaken the Democratic Party and done a pretty good job infiltrating the Republican Party as well.

Standing in front of America is a 69 year old man whose body is being filled with drugs aimed at killing the cancer.

Dizzy, nauseous, and exhausted he stands at the ready to make sure we do “what needs to be done”.

He’s also a man filled with knowledge.

In other words he voted for Trump.

Shoulder to shoulder America.

It’s time to bite down on the mouthpiece and lunge forward.

Firing with both fists.

What am I going to do for you?

A conversation took place a while ago.

If you get elected what are you going to do for me?

My answer was simple.

I’m not going to do anything for you.

You are going to do for you!

If elected I am going to go to DC and stop the lies and corruption that are eating away at our country so YOU can live your life with liberty and pursue happiness to the best of your ability!

I continued.

Your greatest asset or largest liability can be found in the mirror every morning…if you have the courage to look.

Take a good look!!!

Besides, I continued, you are asking the wrong question.

It’s not what I am going to do for you it’s what are you going to do for others?

I don’t remember there being much of a response.

Of course this could have been because of my non verbal cues flashing an incredible irritancy.

Then again who knows these days?

With a good portion of the population conditioned to believe they “deserve” things rather than having to earn them the person asking the question could have been genuinely surprised as this may have been the first time they’d ever been told the truth.

Regardless if I get the question again, and keep my temper in check, my answer will be this.

I am going to continue to work hard, save my money, and be beneficial to others, or in other words, lead by example.

My mirror works just fine because the reflection in it says only one thing.

Freedom First.

Freedom Only.

Okay…two things.
