ICE Cream

"You can imagine if you are an Hispanic American in Arizona, your great grandparents may have been there before Arizona was even a state, but now suddenly if you don’t have your papers, and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you’re gonna be harassed.  That’s something that could potentially happen.  That’s not the right way to go."  - Barack Obama

Your papers.  Your papers?  I think that's supposed to be an incendiary term.  Maybe you have your papers — like his own which Barack Obama has paid enormous sums of money to keep hidden — and you were born in the USA to United States citizens, yet you're harassed by unconstitutional roadblocks or prohibited from acquiring a drivers license, because your newspaper birth announcement and legitimate, certified, birth certificate are not accepted as proof of identity.  Maybe you personally know a host of illegal aliens who simply paid a small fee to acquire false documents and stole social security numbers, easily being granted drivers licenses and gainful employment.  Maybe you can't communicate with your fellow workers or subordinates, so your employer suggests you learn a foreign language.

Maybe you still think you live in a free country, a constitutional republic.  Maybe you don't realize the Constitution, the highest law of the land, has been trampled by at least the last four administrations.  Maybe you're caught up in the left-right paradigm and don't recognize the Hegelian dialectic process at work: "The only way to completely stop the privacy invasions, expanding domestic police powers, land grabs, insane wars against inanimate objects (and transient verbs), covert actions, and outright assaults on individual liberty, is to step outside the dialectic.  This releases us from the limitations of controlled and guided thought."  [What Is the Hegelian Dialectic?, Kjos Ministries]

Maybe you haven't noticed you don't really own much of anything.  Maybe it hasn't occurred to you that if you don't annually pay money to the county, the state, the fed, one or all will take what you think you own: your house, your car, your motorcycle, your boat, your trailer.  Paid off?  Never paid off.  They're yours only as long as you pay the state annually for each one.  Better not fall on hard times, and better hope They don't increase their socialist/communist/fascist fees, or you won't own anything but your clothes and your television, and your television better run on batteries.  You can brown your bread over an open fire, so don't worry about the toaster.

Maybe you feel like you don't have enough stuff, so you like the concept of being given what others have earned.  Maybe you have plenty of stuff but think you'll get more stuff through redistribution.  Maybe you just like to give stuff away.  Give away your own stuff, and give it to whom you wish.  Give some to the Bush family or the Clinton family or the Obama family; they want your stuff, and they may even pass some of it on to others. 

Maybe you think capitalism is faulty and socialism preferred.  Maybe you don't even know a socialist economy was attempted in the early years of our nation's history (Jamestown and Plymouth Plantation), and it failed miserably, as it always does.  Maybe you don't know capitalism, free enterprise, is in keeping with Biblical precepts.  Of course, the degree of a capitalist nation's success and longevity is dependent upon the engagement of people of high moral character with a will to work, two elements which were significantly more abundant at the founding of our nation and are waning through the machinations of the socialist nanny state.  Maybe you don't know it's corporate fascism — not capitalism — which brought us to the place we are today.  Maybe you don't know there are over 73,000 regulations on businesses, so "the free market" has long been gone, eaten by The State.  Maybe you don't know The State mandated unqualified borrowers be given loans by banks, then saved the big banks while causing small ones to fold.

Maybe it's perfectly okay with you that the federal government can access your emails, your online searches, your blog, your medical records, your phone calls.  Maybe it's okay that you can't take your toothpaste with you on a trip, and you'll remove your shoes and be visually stripped naked before you board the airplane.  Maybe you just don't get it that the boogeyman is at the helm and hunting no one but you.  Aren't open borders and millions of invaders a HELLO? 

Maybe I'm just too riled this morning, and I recognize this is an incongruent rant. 

"According to CBS News, the tax dollar part of the vacation include [sic] an estimated $146,000 round-trip cost for the U.S. Air Force 757 aircraft, not counting ground time; about $95,000 in hotel costs for an estimated 70 security personnel -- Secret Service and military -- who get a $273-a-day government per diem, plus costs for the dozen or so cars in her motorcade.  I'm told that three shifts of agents are needed for a trip of this magnitude."   [Michelle Obama's Lavish Spain Vacation Sparking Criticism, Politics Daily]

LET THEM EAT ICE CREAM (with their cake).

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.  II Chronicles 7:14

I'm required to carry my driver's license when I drive. I have to show my VA card when I go to the VA for medical care. I have to show my military ID when I want to use the PX and commissary.

What the heck is the difference? I see no harassment in asking someone for ID in most any situation. If you're legal, what the heck is the problem?

If you're NOT legal, then get the heck out of here!
