What Would the Founding Fathers Do?


Sell Art Online

I have often heard it said by  various individuals they hoped if there was such a  thing as reincarnation, that the founding fathers would come back and save us from ourselves.

They did such a good job forming our country many think they should come back and straighten out the mess we’ve gotten ourselves into. .

What would you do if you were a founding father?

Would you come back to do it all again? Would you suffer through the hardships of Valley Forge, or endure the long hours spent hammering out a constitution and Bill of Rights that no one seems to care about anymore?

Would you  spend your fortunes, risk losing everything you have, subject your families to certain death and poverty as they once did?

Not me, if I had gone through what they did and sacrificed what they did, I would say, “no way Jose”.

I did it once, now it is your turn. I did my part, if you want freedom, it is your turn to step up to the plate and fight for it like we did. I would tell them what my parents told me when I messed up. “You were smart enough to get into this mess, I’m sure you are smart enough to get yourself out of it”

I’ll be on the beach in Bimini, send me an email, I’ll be willing to give advice if you want it. But you have to do it yourself.

Men Need to Act Like Men


Art Prints

Over the last several decades, the feminist movement has done everything  in their power to minimize  men.

Men have come under attack from every corner, and as a result many believe men are no longer necessary.

As a result men have been hesitant to act like men. Many no longer want to get married or be committed to a long term relationship. Why should they?

Many women only want a child so they can have something to replace their dolls they have outgrown, and many don’t want anyone to have control over their child but themselves. They pass out sex like candy at an easter parade, so what incentive is there for a man to want to get married?

Many women have become so independent  they deem men an inconvenience. Many no longer value a man’s influence and guidance.

Men have been encouraged to act more like women and abandon their masculine  qualities.

Then when they do  women complain there are no real men around for them to marry so they can be taken care of, while all the time boasting they are independent  and don’t need anyone to take care of them.

News flash you can’t have it both ways.

Which way do you want it?

The sad part is most women never wanted equality where they were forced to help make a family living. But for many years being a stay at home mother was looked down upon and to be a stay at home mom brought scorn from the media, politicians, and others.

Like many other groups in our society no one spoke up and now many women and men are leading a life they didn’t want.

Many desire the traditional life but for some, that possibility has all but evaporated. Our standard of living has been raised so much that many now find it necessary to work to make ends meet.

For this to change men and women need to act like men and women. If you want to have a career fine, but don’t forget being a woman, wife, and mother  is one of the most important jobs in the world. Don’t get hung up on an illustrious career when that isn’t what you want just because someone thinks that is what you should do.

Don’t be swayed by those in our society who only want to destroy our way of life and what is important. Many times there are things much more important than a career.

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is in this light I have decided to publish some of my random thoughts based on the views of our ancestors.

 

Men Need to be Men


 Women often ask, “Why don’t men act like men anymore?” Why do they find it so hard to commit? I think this video goes a long way in explaining the whole situation. 

He gets into the men thing about a third of the way through, but it is all good.

Why Men Don’t Want to Marry


Written by : The Bashful Country Boy

Many times women ask, “Where have all the good men gone?” Their major complaint is that men  no longer want to commit and settle down.

As is normally the case, the are many facets to the issue and you can’t just narrow it down to one particular issue.

I myself have pondered this and have come to many of the same conclusions as this lady. I think she hits the nail right on the head.

Can America Recover?

When Men Were Men


Photography Prints

You often hear women complain that men just don’t act like men anymore. They complain that men won’t open a door for them, or pay for a meal or accept responsibility,  or get married.

In defense of the men, it has become politically incorrect for men to act like men. There has been a complete wussification of men.  When the equality movement began in the seventies, anyone who disagreed with the feminists were shouted down and called names like chauvinists or bigots. The women that didn’t agree with the extremists were also silenced and afraid to say anything.  There isn’t anyone who likes to be called names and humiliated.

Often times it is completely acceptable for women to be bossy or a bi—. While men are supposed to be more sensitive. How is that supposed to work? You want to be bossy and you expect someone to buy you lunch?

Most men liked to and still do give special treatment to ladies,  however, women now  consider themselves equal, why should anyone open a door for them? If they make the same money as a man,  why should men always buy? How is that fair?

Relationships have become partnerships more than relationships., the whole balance has been upset and put in disarray.

When women no longer are expected to act like women, and don’t want to act like women, then how can they expect men to act like men?

I think everyone agrees there should be equal pay for equal work , and over all more equality in society,however, if you want men to act like men , women will need to act like women, and realize that with equality comes sacrifices. You can’t have it both ways.

Social Security,Health Care and Ted Kennedy


Social Security and Health Care : The Facts

As one of the icons of the far left passed away this week,it has created a lot of controversy  about health care,social security, and other so called benefits the government bestows upon us. They make it sound like most of us wouldn’t have the good sense to get in out of the rain if some government official didn’t tell us it was cloudy.
 I heard it said the other day by a senator that most Americans who are receiving social security really appreciate it.
Appreciate it!!It’s not a gift! It’s our money to begin with, Congress takes it from us and our employers, spends it, and  give back a small pittance. Then they act like they are doing us a favor by returning some of it.
 Do the leg work yourself, find a financial calculator on line and calculate how much money you would have after 40 years if the $200 a week  you and your employer contribute to social security was invested at a conservative 7%. $200 is probably the average amount of money each working individual invests a week in social security, including their employers contribution. I think you will find that at age 65 your income would be a heck of a lot more than social security is going to hand out. Plus , one could just live off the interest and never touch the principle, the money would never run out.
Following are some facts that the liberals fail to mention when it comes to OUR social security.
The Architect of Social Security was Franklin Roosevelt during the depression.

He promised that participation in the program would be completely voluntary,that the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1400 of their annual income into the program.
That the money the participants elected to put into the program would be tax deductible, and the money would go into a trust fund and not be used for anything else. He also promised that the income  one derived at retirement from social security  would never be taxed.
It was rather ingenious, he set the retirement age at 65 and the life expectancy at that time was 64, how convenient!

 Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a social security check and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to ‘Put Away’ “OUR” money— you may be interested in the following:

In 1958, the democratically controlled congress voted to remove some of the funds from social security and put them in the general fund, congress logic at the time was there was so much money in social security, it would never run out .(I was only 14 at the time and I knew that was a really bad idea.)

Then in the 1960s, Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled congress took social security money from the trust fund and put it in the general fund so congress could spend it any way they see fit.

Then under the Carter administration illegal immigrants were allowed to collect social security, even though they never paid into it, the same applies today,plus they want illegal immigrants to be eligible for health care .

In the meantime, social security is being taxed, and is in the process of going broke, do you want the same for your health care?

As you can see, democrats are largely responsible for the current mess social security is presently in, but they keep claiming that republicans want to take away social security, this couldn’t be further from the truth. For the first time in years there will be no raise for social security recipients, thank you, Obama.
    
And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it! Maybe changes Will evolve! …   Maybe not, some Democrats are awfully sure of what isn’t so. 

There has been a lot of talk these days about people spitting on the grave of Ted Kennedy, no one is spitting on his grave, however because of his policies and those of his fellow cronies, we as a country have continuously crept toward socialism and worse. In many areas there are laws against humans feeding wildlife and making them dependent on humans for survival, too bad the same laws don’t apply to congress.

 I don’t know about you but I like freedom of choice,I don’t want the government deciding what kind of car I drive,what I eat, where or when I go to the doctor or what kind of medicine I take.
 If I some day, my physical condition deteriorates and I decide to not take a treatment or medication of some kind to prolong my life, that is my decision, not the government.

Senator Kennedy, I realize no one is perfect and that one of your favorite pastimes earlier in life was sitting round telling Chappaquiddick jokes, no big deal.
I realize that you probably had noble intentions while doing every thing you could to convert our country to socialism, thinking that most people want a world where everything is given to them and done for them.
However this is not the way of the human soul. Most people are a lot happier when they earn their own way. We don’t want your help, you don’t know how to lead, can’t follow,so just get out of the way and let us make it on our own.
If one desires a life under Communism,Marxism, or Socialism, more power to you! There are plenty of countries that will give you that way of life, you are free to migrate any time you like. Leave America for us freedom lovers.


May Senator Kennedy, and his policies rest in peace.

A Government that is strong enough to give you everything you want, is

strong enough to take everything you have”.

Thomas Jefferson

Ted Kennedy’s canonization


Ted Kennedy’s Canonization

I came across this article, which I thought was extremely good.Makes sense to me.

Ted
Kennedy’s canonization is too much.  Every day brings the deaths of
thousands of people, the vast majority of whom are known only to their
families and friends.  These people aren’t mourned by politicians,
reporters, or the general public.

Yet almost every one of these unheralded persons has been more
productive than has Ted Kennedy – or Chuck Grassley, Nancy Pelosi, the
Georges Bush, or any other politician you name, whether he or she be
still breathing or buried.

Who installed the windows in my house?  I don’t know.  Yet he
provided value to me and never forced his hand into my wallet or his
nose into my eating habits.  Who will fly the plane that will carry me
home tomorrow from Michigan to Virginia?  I have no idea.  Yet that
pilot will render unto me (and dozens of others) a valuable service in
exchange for funds that I voluntarily paid to his or her employer. 
That pilot doesn’t force me to fly.  Nor does he or she presume to know
better than I do what is best for my family and me.

Who caught the fish that I will eat tonight?  Who trucked it from
the sea to my hotel?  Who will cook that fish?  Who designed the
dishwasher that cleaned the plate and utensils that I will use?

I know almost none of the millions of people whose daily efforts
make possible my life and that of countless other Americans.  These
people don’t hatch grand plans for arrogantly re-working society.  They
offer only to deal voluntarily with me and with others, never
pretending – unlike Mr. Kennedy – to be endowed with a mysterious
genius and a saintly inspiration justifying haughty intrusions into the
affairs of others.

Politicians are mortals.  But as their greedy lust for power and glory reveals, they are mortals especially flawed.

Sincerely,
Donald J. Boudreaux
