Ann’s Triumphant Tour of Canada

 Ann had a few words about her shoddy treatment at the hands of Canadian pseudo intellectual progressive liberal mindless twits.  She says she is going to file a complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission.  I agree with Coulter that there is the distinct possibility that the Human Rights Commission is nothing more than a hoax.

I just don’t see the Commission censuring anyone for bashing Ann.  Free speech is only for those marching in lock step in the merry band of progressive liberal mindless twits.

“Since arriving in Canada I’ve been accused of thought crimes, threatened with criminal prosecution for speeches I hadn’t yet given, and denounced on the floor of the Parliament (which was nice because that one was on my ‘bucket list’). Posters advertising my speech have been officially banned, while posters denouncing me are plastered all over the University of Ottawa campus. Elected officials have been prohibited from attending my speeches. Also, the local clothing stores are fresh out of brown shirts. Welcome to Canada! The provost of the University of Ottawa … wrote to me — widely disseminating his letter to at least a half-dozen intermediaries before it reached me — in advance of my visit in order to recommend that I familiarize myself with Canada’s criminal laws regarding hate speech. This marks the first time I’ve ever gotten hate mail for something I might do in the future. Apparently Canadian law forbids ‘promoting hatred against any identifiable group,’ which the provost, Francois A. Houle advised me, ‘would not only be considered inappropriate, but could in fact lead to criminal charges.’ … While it was a relief to know that it is still permissible in Canada to promote hatred against unidentifiable groups, upon reading Francois’ letter, I suddenly realized that I had just been the victim of a hate crime! And it was committed by Francois A. Houle (French for ‘Frank A. Hole’). … I’m sure Canada’s Human Rights Commission will get to the bottom of Francois’ strange warning to me, inasmuch as I will be filing a complaint with that august body…. If a university official’s letter accusing a speaker of having a proclivity to commit speech crimes before she’s given the speech — which then leads to Facebook postings demanding that Ann Coulter be hurt, a massive riot and a police-ordered cancellation of the speech — is not hate speech, then there is no such thing as hate speech. Either Francois goes to jail or the Human Rights Commission is a hoax and a fraud.” –columnist Ann Coulter

We Won’t Ask and You Better Not Tell

Today’s news of political incorrectness is that Lieutenant General Benjamin Mixon is being excoriated by the Pentagon for an open letter to Stars and  Stripes  about the latest in social engineering experiments being forced on the military services.  The ripple of “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal emanating from the Pentagon is undoubtedly a tsunami by the time it gets to the field where the real soldiers operate.

I was not surprised to learn that Defense secretary Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Adm. Michael Mullen are zealously following the political party line to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell.”  My only question is has anyone seen this pair holding hands?  Gates I will overlook solely because he is not in uniform and is a politician.  Admiral Mullen is entirely different.  He is in uniform and does not have the nerve to stand against something that will prove prejudicial to the good order and discipline of the military services.  He does not stand between the soldiers, sailors, and airmen looking to him for leadership and the politicians with their politically correct agenda.  If Admiral Mullen will not stand up and speak for them who will?  LTG Mixon did stand up and made his voice heard.  He has earned my respect.  We thank you General Mixon for speaking the obvious truth.

This relentless politically correct agenda has been around since the 1960s when the women’s liberation movement began.  They proclaimed that women were equal to men and began an uncompromising movement to prove the premise.  The first blow for women’s equality in the Army, that I remember, was changing a basic height requirement for military police.  There was a requirement that to enter military police training the trainee must be 5’11” tall.  Obviously women cannot possibly be equal with a silly height requirement so it was lowered, then eliminated.  Anyone who goes to the movies knows that petite, cute martial arts girls can take down 6’ giants with impunity.

A further step in the pursuit of equality was to change the physical training and testing standards.  You know if you cannot do a push up you cannot be equal.  So standards were gerrymandered for women’s equality.  One problem is that you cannot gerrymander reality.  When I was in Korea in the 1970s “can I lift your truck hood for you, PFC?” was a great pick up line for enterprising enlisted men.

When men and women began training together in the 1980s it was necessary to have another major modification to ensure equality.  Obviously there is no Army Regulation that has ever been able to modify reality although there has been many a mighty attempt to modify reality.  But, I fear I have digressed on the subject at hand, “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

I do not mean to burst anyone’s imaginary bubbles.  The reality is “don’t ask, don’t tell” has been the unspoken policy since the days of the brown boot Army when they did not have brown boots.  They just painted their feet brown.  That was a long, long time ago.  Soldiers really did not care about the sexuality of others unless it became a problem.  The organization did not care either.  Live and let live.

Starting with President Clinton “don’t ask, don’t tell” has been nothing more than a political football.  The military services are not a playground for politician’s social engineering projects.  It (repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell) will join all the many existing distractions that negatively affect esprit de corps and the combat power of our military services.

Thank you LTG Mixon for having the integrity to voice the serious concerns of soldiers, and ex-soldiers everywhere about this ill conceived action.  I fear your imminent sacrifice on the altar of political correctness.  I fervently pray that they do not try to personally humiliate you by retiring you as a Major General.  They can try but a man of honor and integrity cannot be thusly humiliated.

Attention Freedom Loving People

You are now under the control of those who know better than you. Rep. Dingell is from the state of Michigan and we all know how well things are working out there – abandonded factories, unemployment, crime, unbridled unionism. Speaker Pelosi comes from another fine, fine state going bankrupt. They are their partners in Constitution shredding partners in crime know better than you.

The equality of socialism is that all of the people are equally miserable.

Jacob Duché’s First Prayer in Congress”[September 7, 1774] 

O! Lord, our heavenly father, King of Kings and Lord of lords: who dost from thy throne behold all the dwellers upon earth and reignest with power supreme & uncontrouled over all kingdoms, empires and governments, look down in mercy, we beseech thee, upon these our American states who have fled to thee from the rod of the oppressor and thrown themselves upon thy gracious protection, desiring henceforth to be dependent only on thee. To thee they have appealed for the righteousness of their Cause; to Thee do they look up, for that countenance & support which Thou alone canst give. Take them, therefore, Heavenly Father, under thy nurturing care: give them wisdom in council, valour in the field. Defeat the malicious designs of our cruel adversaries. Convince them of the unrighteousness of their cause. And if they persist in their sanguinary purposes, O! let the voice of thy unerring justice sounding in their hearts constrain them to drop the weapons of war from their enerved hands in the day of battle. Be thou present, O God of Wisdom and direct the counsels of this honourable Assembly. Enable them to settle things upon the best and surest foundation, that the scene of blood may be speedily closed; that harmony and peace may effectually be restored, and truth and justice, religion and piety prevail and flourish amongst thy people. Preserve the health of their bodies and the vigour of their minds; shower down upon them and the millions they represent such temporal blessings as Thou seest expedient for them in this world, and crown them with everlasting glory in the world to come. All this we ask in the name and through the merits of Jesus Christ thy son, Our Saviour, Amen.

And our continued daily prayer shall be………….I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour.  (1 Timothy 2:1-3)

The Wrecking Crew on the Way to Work


Not to do the People’s business, but to give the People the business.

 

  • Trash the Constitution
  • Create unsustainable debt
  • Mandates by law that all citizens purchase a service
  • $456 million in Medicare cuts 

Today I found “these discredited hysterics” on a washingtonpost.com blog. I do not understand the point of ridiculing Reagan’s prophetic words. The writer used “these discredited hysterics” to allege that Reagan was wrong to oppose Medicare since Medicare was working out splendidly. Huh?   It is plainly obvious that Reagan was addressing a problem that was not a cataclysmic end but rather one that would progress to an end that would be cataclysmic.  Today we move a step closer to the cataclysmic event of becoming a socialist nation.  Ronald Reagan made this statement 49 years ago on the “Coffee Cup Record.  It is as scary today  as it was then.

“One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. Most people are a little reluctant to oppose anything that suggests medical care for people who possibly can’t afford it.” — Ronald Reagan

A Little Anecdotal Help

Here is my latest message to Hussein, Texas Senators, and our member of the House of Ill Repute. Do you think they will use the following anecdote?

If you are out of health care anecdotes I have one for you.  My daughter is an employee of HEB Grocery Company.  She participates in her company’s health care plan that provides excellent coverage for her and her two teen age daughters.   She made the wise choice to be insured and if she had not that would be a whole another anecdote.

A few years ago she was considering purchasing insurance for cancer.  I told her that in my opinion it was unnecessary.  She decided to purchase it anyway.  She developed breast cancer.  Her current treatment costs $8,000.00 per month and is fully covered by her cancer insurance. 

Let me know if you use my anecdote.  I understand that my daughter is not a hapless single mother making poor personal choices, but, I think this anecdote will show that there are Americans out there taking personal responsibility and making great choices for their personal healthcare.

Obama Nightmare

Michael Williams, the Railroad Commissioner of the Great State of Texas, wants Kay Bailey Hutchison’s Senate seat.

This man is the real deal. He has done a fine job overseeing the Texas energy industry. He will do an equally fine job as our Senator.

If you want to keep the hogs away from the trough set the example like Michael Williams does.

This man will make a strong stand against earmarks as well.

Williams clearly understands and respects our Constitution.

He sweeps aside all the politically correct hogwash and has a clear vision of our American exceptionalism.

He’ll have my vote for Senator. If Hutchison steps aside Perry should select Michael Williams to finish the balance of her term.
