A bill was just signed into law in California that should have every parent in the golden state hanging their head in disgrace. California has just become the first state in the country to ban plastic bags.  Yes California has just brought an end to the age old question “paper or plastic”.  Plastic bags will be phased out of grocery stores by 2016.  The idea behind this new law is two part. The first is an attempt to influence people to bring their own bag to the grocery store, this is achieved by requiring stores to charge ten cents for a paper bag.  The second purpose for this new law is to help reduce the amount of litter blowing around the state.

This law seems like it is passed with the best intentions. It is trying to save trees, the planet, innocent woodland creatures. It is trying to save the state money by reducing the amount of trash that people have to pick up along the road side. So why then do I support the claim that this law is a cause for shame? Shouldn’t the parents be praised for electing such thoughtful people into power?  The answer is simple, this law was brought about by a failure of the parents to instil proper values into their children.

This law came about because of a perceived problem. That problem was the “alarming” growth of litter in the form of plastic grocery bags. How are these bags becoming litter? The answer is simple, a lack of discipline.   Either people are too lazy to ensure that these bags are properly disposed of, or they are too lazy to ensure that they even get into a refuse container. Who is responsible for teaching a person not only that they should, but how to throw trash away? The answer is the parents. So if the trash is not getting thrown away, and is becoming an issue around the state, the failing must have arisen at the parental level. Because parents do not educate and instil some form of discipline in their children, the people of California not only have to live with copious amounts of trash, but massive inconvenience as well as increased costs. They have to bring a bag, lug it around town, try not to lose it, find it when you want to go shopping, or pay a fee at the store. Parents should be ashamed of themselves that the state of California has come to this course of action.

However, all of this pales in comparison to the biggest reason for the parental disgrace in California.  Here there was a problem plaguing the community, and it went unaddressed for so long that the entire community was punished.  Parents have failed to teach their kids to stand up and solve problems. They have not taught their kids to be proactive. We have an entire generation coming p that sees a problem, complain for hours, then says “someone should do something about that”, then walk away. The fact that plastic bags had to be banned, shows that parents have failed to teach kids to take the initiative to solve problems that they see.  It shows that parents have taught their kids to wait for someone else to solve the problem.  The country cannot survive with that mindset.  Parents should be ashamed of themselves.

In Denver Colorado students stormed out of class to protest the audacious plan proposed by the school board. The villainous demons on the school board had the bold face audacity to propose a change in the school’s curriculum. These heartless thugs dared to propose changing the school’s history curriculum to focus on promoting citizenship, patriotism, and respect for authority. Starting with advanced placement history a committee would review course materials and text books to make sure that they “promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free-market system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights” and to ensure that they do not “encourage or condone civil disorder, social strike or disregard of the law”.

Well this proposal has just outraged the students and apparently the teachers in this district. The students walk out Tuesday September 24, followed a “sick out” from teachers that shut down two high schools in the area. The students had several things to say about this proposal, the one that stuck out the most in my mind was from a 17 year old student. This student said, “I don’t think my education should be censored. We should be able to know what happened in our past”. How twisted must someone’s view of their own country be, that they assume that promoting patriotism and citizenship somehow means that they are being subjected to massive censorship? This is an individual whose mind has already been poisoned against his homeland. This statement makes the assumption that there is more bad than good in the history of this country. To assume that trying to teach a positive message of the United States means nothing but censorship, means that one believes that there are no redeeming qualities to their country.

Julie Williams, a member of the school board, had this to say on the issue, “There are things we may not be proud of as Americans,” she said. “But we shouldn’t be encouraging our kids to think that America is a bad place.” Ms. Williams is exactly right. There are many things in this nation’s past that we should not be proud of. Dark points, evil deeds that we should be disgusted by. The progressives have a point, we should teach about these times in our history however, they want it to end there. They want our nation defined by its most wicked of deeds. They are wrong. It is not these dark valleys that define us, it is never the lows that define us. No, the greatness of our nation, of us as a people, is defined by how we moved forward. How we rectified the wrongs, how we came together to rise above the darkness. If the United States was a wicked nation, we would not have ended slavery. If the United States was a despicable nation, we would not have passed the civil rights amendment. If the United States was what the progressives claim us to be, we would not have survived to this point. We would have succumbed to the pressures of the world long ago. Unjust societies crumble like leaves in the wind.

Progressives do not want a positive message of the United State being taught, because that makes it much harder for them to destroy it, and rebuild it into their socialist utopia of mediocrity and misery. They do not want the lessons of how we moved forward, and changed for the better to be taught. Probably because it was big government progressives who fought these changes every step of the way. It was the Democrat Party that stonewalled the 13th amendment. It was a progressive who founded Planned Parenthood as a eugenics project to stem the growth of the African American Population (Margret Sanger). It was a progressive who re-segregated the military prior to WWI (Woodrow Wilson). It was a progressive who made it illegal to speak out against the government (Woodrow Wilson). It was a progressive who locked up the Japanese in internment camps in World War II (FDR). It was progressives who tried to stop equal rights legislation in the 60’s. Perhaps the progressives do not want the whole truth taught about American History because they know that it will reveal them for the racist bigots that they truly are. Perhaps progressives do not want the children of this country to know the truth because the first thing the nation did to set things right, was removing the progressive swine from office.

It is a shame that these students have had their minds so corrupted by the lies of the progressive movement. I truly wish that they could see the greatness in this country. Yes there is weakness, but deep down inside of every American lies a courage to stand up and face down injustice. America is not great because we have stolen from the rest of the world. America is great because we are good hearted people. America is great because America is free, we are free to innovate, to create, to explore. It is these freedoms that have led to the United States creating half of the world’s wealth, in under 300 years. Half the churches in France are older than our country. I hope the school does not cave. These are lessons that must be taught. The TRUTH must be made known. The whole truth, not just the truth that keeps a light shining on the progressives, and our eyes away from their shadows.

At work today I was listening to the radio and I heard several stories that just made my brain shift into overdrive. I started to make connections between stories that are seemingly overlooked by many of us. Either from a desire to push some political agenda, or a desire to live in ignorant bliss because the truth is too horrifying to accept.

I have continually heard news stories about ISIL, and how we have started bombing them. For those of you who live under a rock, ISIL is a terrorist organization set on reestablishing the Islamic caliphate that was lost with the destruction of the Ottoman Empire following World War I. They preach violence and hatred. They order people to convert or die. They behead foreign journalist. Worst of all they tell their men to go out and rape women for the next generation of the caliphate. Now every time I hear about the atrocities that ISIL has committed my mind starts racing. Why are the progressives not standing on the street corner demanding that we act? Why are they not demanding the full fury of the United States be brought to bear against these radical religious extremists who are waging a war on women? The answer to that we already know is that they are not running a political campaign against ISIL. The bigger question I find myself asking is why have hundreds of American men and women gone off to fight for ISIL? Why have they forsaken the liberty and opportunities promised by God and persevered by the Constitution of the United States, for the backwards barbarism of ISIL?

That is a hard question to answer, not because the answer is elusive, but because the answer is a bitter pill to swallow. Some say that people are leaving the United States to stand with ISIL because they stand for something, even though it is terrifying, their firm belief inspires the lost masses. I do not think that is right. I honestly believe that the blame for Americans choosing to stand with ISIL lies in the revisionist history that the ignorant radical progressives have forced upon the young people in this country.

At the heart of the progressive movement lies the belief that the United States is not a shining city upon the hill, but rather the monster under the bed. Progressives believe that the United States is illegitimate, it was founded immorally, and thus any of its success is due to the pain and suffering of others. Progressives believe that the United States only has what it does because it stole from every other nation in the world. The wealth of this country was not created by the free market, but rather stolen by evil mustachioed villains in suits and top hats. Because they believe that the United States was immoral in its founding, that means every success the nation has enjoyed is illegitimate.

It is no secret that radical progressives have been shaping the curriculum of our nation’s schools for decades. This control allows progressives the ability to shape the beliefs and viewpoints of the next generation. So how would a student brought up in a school system that demonizes the American Way, possibly feel loyal to the United States? If all you had heard about this country is how evil it is, how wrong it always is, how could you feel compelled to stand up to defend it? It is easy to see how someone who could feel sympathetic to a force that is demonizing the US and vowing to destroy it.

Now I understand that to some this may seem a stretch. Come on man, you don’t expect us to believe that just because progressives control the schools, they are driving kids to become radical extremists. Of course I don’t, but I want you to think long and hard about this (I apologize to progressive zealots, I know that independent thought is complicated for those incorporated into the hive mind). By allowing progressives to defame the entirety of US history, what reason does a child have to believe in the promise of the United States? Their lies have polluted the minds of seemingly an entire generation. I concede that this is a hard point to swallow that is why I have not talked about this theory. I had to have something to make this concept real. I had to have some facts behind it, I had to have an example to support my theory.

To assume that trying to teach a positive message of the United States means nothing but censorship, means that one believes that there are no redeeming qualities to their country.

Here we have a case of hundreds of students walking out of their class rooms because they believe that a positive message about the United States is clearly full of lies. These are high school students from Denver Colorado. Presumably most of them have grown up in the United States, and have enjoyed the fruits bestowed upon them by the blessings of liberty, and they have been poisoned into believing there is no redemption in the United States. Imagine now how easily tainted the mind of an immigrant would be? Someone whose family is just starting out on the trail towards the American Dream, how easy it would be for them to be convinced of the evil vial despotism that resides in the heart of this nation? Is it really hard then to assume that the progressive’s perpetual defamation of this great nation, could poison the minds of its people and drive them towards ISIL? If the United States is evil, then one can assume that someone fighting against it, is not.

Progressive hatred and bigotry has had many unintended consequences over the years, I am truly starting to believe that acting as a recruiting agent for ISIL might be one of them. There are things in this nation’s past that are shameful, but the greatness of this nation is defined by how we moved forward and learned from those actions. We are a nation ever growing, learning, and striving for equality. We are a nation of kings, with every man’s home being his castle. The countless spires reaching for the sky, form the great skyline of our shining city upon a hill. A beacon of hope for all the peoples of the world. It is a shame that the progressives cannot see that.

Civilization stands upon the break, barbarism lurks in the coming veil. Demons have been set free, and are ravaging the land. They move unchecked like a ravenous swarm, leaving not but fear and devastation in their wake.  Darkness is coming. A darkness dominates the horizon, a darkness that will extinguish all hope for mankind. A darkness that man has not faced for thousands of years. The light of liberty fueled by reason and faith, has long been a beacon of hope to the suffering masses of the world. The beacon of salvation is threatened, and if it is lost, the blessings its light brought will be forfeit to the ages. A memory lost to time as comforting as the last whiffs of smoke curling from an extinguished candle. Evil is rising.

Evil can only endure when good men do nothing, darkness only prevails when the guardians of the light forsake their charge. We here in the United States live in the Shining City upon a Hill. Our marbled halls and bountiful harvests are a beacon of hope for all mankind. Our generous hearts, and helping hands have long been the messengers of good faith to the world. Our might defends the weak, our wrath smites the wicked, and our moral center sets an example for the people around the world to follow. We are not the world’s police force, nor should we be. However, when wolf cries at the door and winters chill sets its icy grips upon the world, who will stand if not us? Who can stand if not us?

The map is burning. Putin’s Russia rises in the Baltic, setting its hungry gaze upon former soviet glory. The Islamic Caliphate rises in the Middle East, seeking to destroy the western world. The winds of change have started to blow, and our President, the leader of the free world, refuses to hoist the sails. Our enemies are gathering outside the gates, yet no muster sounds. The world will burn, us with it, if we allow evil to stand.

President Obama has long sought to end America’s influence in the world. He has made us the laughing stock of the world, and shown the enemies of liberty and justice that America will do nothing to stop them. President Obama refuses to accept the reality of this world, choosing instead to believe his delusional world of fantasy. He refuses to accept that the might of the United States has been a force for good, of stabilization in this world. The United States will fall to the whims of this mad man.

President Obama has shown the world that command of the most powerful nation in the world, the greatest fighting force humanity has ever known, has been handed over to not the JV, but rather the freshman team. Their ignorance and especially in President Obama’s case arrogance, have severed only to embolden the monsters that lurk in this world. Watching the way President Obama and his lackeys attempt to politicize rather than deal with the crisis facing the world is enough to cause my head to explode.

ISIS, is a radical group of Jihadist that makes AL Qaeda look like the Back Street Boys. They are capable of taking and holding territory. They have shown that they are adept at military tactics. Most important of all they have shown that they do not fear the United States of America. Why should they, President Obama has shown the world that he will do nothing to stop them. He did nothing when radicals crossed the red line in Sierra. He sat by and did nothing while jihadists sacked Benghazi. Hell he even tried to create a cover story for them.

In a press conference on August 28th, 2014 President Obama stood before the world, to address and answer questions on the threat posed by ISIS. President Obama: I don’t want to put the cart before the horse.  We don’t have a strategy yet.  I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggests that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we’re at than we currently are.  And I think that’s not just my assessment, but the assessment of our military as well.  We need to make sure that we’ve got clear plans, that we’re developing them.  At that point I will consult with Congress and make sure that their voices are heard.

I could go on for hours about the last part of the quote, but the part that is the most terrifying is the quote that by now I am sure you have heard thousands of times, “we don’t have a strategy yet”. I cannot conceive the mind that thinks this is a reasonable thing to say. Who in their right mind goes before the world and says, “I have access to the largest military in the world, and the greatest intelligence network the world has ever known, and I don’t have any clue what the hell I am going to do.” Let me make this point very clear, I don’t know is never under any circumstances an acceptable answer from someone in a leadership position.

The President of the United States is, whether progressive scumbags like it or not, the leader of the free world. The United States is the nation that other nations look to in times of trouble. We are the people whom the people of the world seek out when doom is at hand. We are the people who must pull the less fortunate to safety. The President of The United States is an office that brings with it a sacred duty. A duty that President Obama refuses to accept. His ignorant actions serve as an insult to the memory of every man who ever held the office before him, even disgracing the likes of Nixon. A leader is supposed to inspire confidence in the hearts of those who follow him. To rally their sprits. To awaken the long dormant courage that lies deep in every one of our hearts. President Obama has betrayed that duty. By answering I don’t know, to the question of “what are you going to do”, President Obama has not only devastated those who put their faith in his leadership, he has also emboldened the vary demons the people of the world turned towards him to slay. They know now that he has no plans to stop them, and they have nothing to fear. The people of the world now know that no help is coming, that the United States has forsaken the world.

There are hundreds of ways to avoid the question about the ISIS strategy. President Obama could have said, ‘We are currently working on several options for dealing with ISIS,” or ‘ISIS is a dangerous group that has caused a lot of suffering already, the United States is currently looking into options to bring them to justice’. Hell he could have said, “The situation is developing and I will have an answer for you soon”. At least then he sounds like he is working on something, other than is pathetic golf swing. He could have also gone the aggressive route, pretend he was talking about the GOP. I know he is capable of it, I remember him telling people to vote for revenge, to punish their enemies. So along those lines he could have said, “They should know we will follow them to the gates of hell until they are brought to justice.” Wait, someone did say that, it wasn’t the President though…. Oh that’s right it was Vice President Joe Biden. It is sad when Joe Biden makes more sense than the President of the United States.

Of course after the fiasco of the “I don’t know” statement, President Obama had to re-write history with one of his “let me be clear” moments. Once again he came before the world and this time he had an answer. This time he spoke in response to the beheading of another American Journalist. President Obama made it very clear what the American Objective was. “Our objective is clear, and that is to degrade and destroy ISIL so that it’s no longer a threat, not just to Iraq, but also the region and to the United States” Holy crap, President Obama found that long dormant courage, the strength to do what is necessary. That or, perhaps he has really good speech writers who tried to make the President sound more manly, and competent. I say this because when answering a question later on, the REAL President Obama came out. The slimy, slithering, spineless political chump who we have all gotten to know all too well. “We know that if we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISIL’s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem” Nah we aren’t going to stand up, we are not going to chase you to the gates of hell, don’t worry. We are just going to slap you on the wrist and pretend like you don’t exists. In the course of one press conference he went from “RAIN FIRE AND DESTRUCTION DOWN UPON THEM! SUMMON THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APPACOLYPSE, RIDE OUT AND BRING DEATH TO THE HEATHEN HOARD” to “Meh, we are going to work with our allies, form some committees, take some polls, and try and limit their wifi access a bit.” The fate of United States, no the Free World rests in the hands of an unranked amateur, who would rather play golf than save the world.

So tonight we wait to hear from President Obama, to hear what he will do on the shadow that now threatens the entirety of the free world. What will he do in the face of this one doom? How will he tackle this plaque that he has allowed to spread a crossed the planes of this world? I pray there is a plan, a real plan, but all I see coming is a speech designed to blame republicans and pass the blame onto someone else.

Evil thrives when good men do nothing.
