Obama's "Impressionist" Flag Raises Red Flags!

Well, I'm not pretending to be an art critic, but I will take a stab at this recent attempt at altering the United States the Obama regime.  I looked up the definition of impressionist art and found that it is a technique used by artists to give an impression of an catching a glimpse of something concrete.  I guess it would be similar to Americans catching a glimpse of the freedoms they once took for granted... slipping away.  Upon further reflection, I sensed a certain Mr. Obama's economic policies which lack exactness of details.  Moving right along I feel it encompassed a certain sketchiness...quite similar to the foreign policies we have endured the past three years.  I will end my critique with a comment about the obvious presence of the "O".  This has no place on America's flag.  It is shameful to think that a President of the United States should take the symbol of the United States of America and be the one to dishonor it.  He has presented a cheap imitation to replace a priceless piece of art.  THAT'S MY FIRST IMPRESSION!
Note: If we don't defend our flag waving in the you think we will defend our rights...or just keep "waiving" them?
May God bless America…and may America deserve it.

Should Black Candidates Be "Untouchable"?

Why should we consider black candidates if they are not allowed to be under the same scrutiny as any other candidates?  Anyone who steps into the political arena is savvy enough to know that life under a microscope just goes with the territory.  Surely, the NAACP and Al Sharpton know this as well.  Millions of Caucasians bought into Martin Luther King's come together messages and marched or fought for the same dream.  But lately, many are rethinking candidate choices because America has been put on notice that black candidates are "untouchable" and anything they do is not to be is racist.  If you want equality then let it be across the board.  Throughout history, there has been a long list of political reprobates...who were white; Africa and America have had their share...who were black.  Skin color is not a determining factor of honesty, capability, or culpability.  Quit tearing America apart when it has struggled so hard to come together.  Don't be racist!

Note: A good decision is not always a popular one; however, it is always the right one.

May God bless America…and may America deserve it.

David Petraeus Replaces McChrystal

Today the fate of General Stanley McChrystal hung in the balance. Whether it was a foregone conclusion or one based on today’s behind-closed-doors conversation is irrelevant. What happened? Did McChrystal let his guard down around the press representative who cajoled and stroked the officer’s ego on one hand while waiting for an opportunity to make that big headline? Remember…this was a ROLLING STONE writer. So much for …keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Could it be that this was Stan’s own exit strategy since he could not work within the confines…and under the micromanagement…of the Commander-in-Chief? Well, what’s done is done; he is gone. Maybe there should be an additional course added to the WAR COLLEGE curriculum entitled THE PRESS: AMERICA’S BIPOLAR DOUBLE AGENT. Fortunately, David Petraeus will replace McChrystal as the top Afghan Commander. BUT, should we throw the baby out with the bathwater? The replaced general still has clout…AKA influence…with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. It might serve our President well to keep him on in an advisor/negotiator position. In closing, I will answer the question readers may wonder. Do I think President Obanma did the right thing in accepting General McChrystal’s resignation? Answer: Absolutely.

Note: A good decision is not always a popular one; however, it is always the right one.

May God bless America…and may America deserve it.

When Is It Okay To Show Minors Nude Pictures Of Their Mother?

I had picked out my topic for this blog, however, after watching the View on television today…a show I almost never watch…I was moved to veer from my original path. Today’s special guest was the extremely talented star of HawthoRNe (and wife of actor Will Smith) Jada Pinkett Smith. Evidently, she is featured on the Essence Magazine June/July cover…nude. What was unusual about the choice was that the original picture…to be front-and-center... was of a fully and tastefully clothed Jada, which was amazing. She had “other”…ahem… photos taken supposedly for her husband’s private collection yet admittedly, when she went home, she showed at least one nude photo to her daughter Willow (age 9) and got the response that the photo looked “elegant”. Now, this child’s comment spurred the green-light which moved Will’s wife to “STOP THE PRESSES!” and put the nude picture on the cover instead. I have several questions. What happened to the plan of the photos being for her husband’s “private collection”? How does a woman condone nude photos…to be shown in public…to her children? Why would a child’s comment make a wrong decision okay? How does a mother make the decision to show inappropriate photos to her children (female and male) in the first place? Had she not been a part of the Hollywood elite…would local authorities have stepped in for her showing nude photos to minors… especially since she was their MOM? If she has crossed this line, where will her children draw the new line for their morality? This bugs me!

Note: Parents set the bar by which children look up to them…or…down on them.

May God bless America...and may America deserve it.

After a much needed hiatus...I am back. Starting Monday, I will begin blogging about a new crop of issues and offer...once own personal twist. There will be three posts per week (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday). I will not restrict passion or abbreviate my stance. As always, I will end with a note! Thank you for being patient, loyal, and unafraid to examine facts beyond what the press (or the government) offers.

Note: Liberty can only have a toehold when it is ascending.

May God bless America...and may America deserve it!

What Can You Do To Help America?

Happy New Year, America! I know it is hard for many of us to feel like anything we do is "really going to matter" with regard to the state of our nation. Well, if you are one of those people...let me tell you one simple (yet empowering) thing you can do, and should do, daily. Pray! Yes, pray for our nation. Not one of those quickies, but rather one of those down on your knees in all humility types. Bible: The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16). So maybe you are not a righteous individual, but you are spiritually inclined. Pray! Maybe you are not as eloquent as you think you should be to get your message across. Just remember...God does not critique your delivery, but He does scrutinize your heart. Sometimes we think God is not listening when really...we are not talking.

Note: We need to do everything within our power to help our country remain free.

May God bless America...and may America deserve it!

West Point's Backdrop Couldn't Save Obama's Flop

I'm back...thanks for hanging in there. This blog was intentionally delayed until President Obama got back to General McChrystal's request for additional troops in Afghanistan. Now, with many of America's finest surrounding him...the cadets at West Point...he had an opportunity to do his own Commander-In-Chief. It was the most eloquently delivered speech of "fence straddling" I have heard in a long time. I am quite sure he has read the book Speak Like Churchhill, Stand Like Lincoln, by James C. Humes, yet he fell embarrassingly short of either leaders' comparison tonight. After waiting approximately seventy days to initially talk to the President (face-to-face) about his need for 45,000 troops, it is hard to fathom that this "strategy" is the outcome of McChrystal's...and America's...additional three months of waiting. How many lobbyists and special interest groups does one have to poll...or avert a crisis? Mr. President, to stand like Lincoln you need a backbone. I'll say it again...There are dire consequences for just PLAYING WAR. There is only one way to win a war...decisively!

Note: A wise man's words are well received with or without the accompaniment of eloquence.

May God bless America...and may America deserve it!
