Dick Morris Quote on Hillary Clinton

“Senator Clinton is determined not to tell us where she stands on anything. Instead, she has come to believe, probably correctly, that if we knew what she really wants to do as president, we would never vote for her.”

Walter Williams Quote On Poverty In The USA

“Poverty is not static for people willing to work. A University of Michigan study shows that only 5 percent of those in the bottom fifth of the income distribution in 1975 remained there in 1991. What happened to them? They moved up to the top three-fifths of the income distribution—middle class or higher. Moreover, three out of 10 of the lowest income earners in 1975 moved all the way into the top fifth of income earners by 1991. Those who were poor in 1975 had an inflation-adjusted average income gain of $27,745 by 1991. Those workers who were in the top fifth of income earners in 1975 were better off in 1991 by an average of only $4,354. The bottom line is, the richer are getting richer and the poor are getting richer. Poverty in the United States, in an absolute sense, has virtually disappeared. Today, there’s nothing remotely resembling poverty of yesteryear. However, if poverty is defined in the relative sense, the lowest fifth of income-earners, ‘poverty’ will always be with us. No matter how poverty is defined, if I were an unborn spirit, condemned to a life of poverty, but God allowed me to choose which nation I wanted to be poor in, I’d choose the United States. Our poor must be the envy of the world’s poor.”

Cowboy Diplomacy….Has It Worked?

One of the things that Hillary Clinton is promising to do as soon as she is elected (God forbid!) is to send out envoys to various nations in the world with the message that the “era of cowboy diplomacy is over”. I have heard her say thing many times. She is referring to how George Bush has chosen to conduct his duties – especially in relation to the war on terror. To be honest, I have been very disappointed with Bush during his second term on most issues but the one glaring area that he has done well is his adherence to his plan and convictions in regards to how he is conducting the war on terror. Bush has a reputation as being a cowboy because he has been unwilling to compromise in the defense of our country and in the goal of taking the fight to the enemies of this country before we have to fight them here.

Hillary’s plan has got me to thinking. Has the “cowboy diplomacy” used by George Bush worked or not? If it has not worked then we will need to make the necessary changes (whatever they may be) in order to effectively defend our country. If it has worked, then the next president should be willing and able to continue it. In order to answer the question we must examine what things were like before “cowboy diplomacy” was instituted and what things are like after it has been instituted.

Before Bush, Bill Clinton was president for 8 years – from 1992 to 2000. During that time our people were attacked all over the world.  A very quick internet search turned up these instances of successful attacks on the US.  They were

* February 26, 1993, attack on the World Trade Center: 6 deaths and 1,042 injured
* April 19, 1995, Oklahoma City bombing: 168 deaths and over 800 injured
* June 25, 1996, Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia: 20 deaths and 372 injured
* August 7, 1998, attacks on American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania: 12 U.S. deaths out         of a total of 223 deaths; 12 U.S. injured out of a total of over 4,000 injured
* October 12, 2000, attack on the USS Cole in Yemen: 17 deaths; 39 injured
* September 11, 2001, attacks in New York and Washington (occurred during Bush                         presidency but planned during Clinton administration): 2,975 deaths and 24 missing.

As you can see, it seems that it was open season in America and Americans during the Clinton years.  Clinton said the right things after these attacks but his actions were severely lacking so there was no real deterrent to those who wanted to kill us.  Our military was made weaker and our intelligence gathering ability was destroyed.

The September 11, 2001 attack did occur while Bush was in office and after that the war on terror became a primary focus for the Bush Administration.  He has stated that we will hunt down and punish those who attack us and those who give them aid.  What has been the result?  We are currently fighting the war on terror on two fronts – Afghanistan and Iraq, we are fighting the terrorist on their soil, not ours.  There have been some attempted terrorists attacks on US citizens but none (outside of the war zones) have been successful, while terrorist attacks on other nations have increased (see, Spain and England).  Can you say “easier targets“?  Other nations have stepped forward to help fight the terrorists…albeit in a much lessor role.  The terrorists have been forced to change tactics..relying much more on propaganda (which much of our media is very willing to help them distribute).  And much more….

Now, do we really want “cowboy diplomacy” to end?  Can we afford for it to end?  If we elect Hillary it will end.  We need to elect someone with the guts and desire to protect our country from those who want to do us harm, not try to appease them.

I Just Found Out That I Am A Racist…..

At least that is what the residence hall students at the University of Delaware are being forcibly indoctrinated with taught. Click here to read the story. They define a racist in this way:

“A RACIST: A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. ‘The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality. By this definition, people of color cannot be racists, because as peoples within the U.S. system, they do not have the power to back up their prejudices, hostilities, or acts of discrimination….’”

You may have to read that twice to get the full effect of what it is saying. It says white people are all racist by definition because of the white people have created a society that oppresses anyone who is not white. But this is not all that the University of Delaware is teaching. It requires that

“Students will recognize that systemic oppression exists in our society,” “Students will recognize the benefits of dismantling systems of oppression,” and “Students will be able to utilize their knowledge of sustainability to change their daily habits and consumer mentality,”

This is a state run institution.  I wonder what would happen if a state run institution suddenly started requiring students to recognize that Jesus is God and that He is the only path to salvation or that all religions except Christianity are cults and must be eliminated from our country.  We all know what would happen….the democrats would be rioting in the streets.  I also wonder is parents are told of this program when they are registering their children at the University of Delaware.  It is my guess that they are not.

Read the story for yourself and see if you are as amazed as I am.  Let me know what you think about it.
