The other night I was watching Undercover Boss with Raven when we saw something interesting. The CEO of 7-11 was in the Dallas area (sorry Dallas, they actually said what part, but since I don’t know the DFW area at all, I’m not going to insult you by taking a guess) when he met Igor, a delivery driver. Igor worked nights. Igor’s wife is a school teacher (thus, works days). So, they rarely saw each other during the week.
“Danny” (the CEO’s cover name, I can’t remember his real name…sorry) asked Igor how he could deal with not getting to see his wife except on the weekends. Igor’s answer was simple: Less time to see each other, less time to fight. I thought that was hilarious, Raven did not.
Then Danny asked Igor the big question: How could Igor be so upbeat while working a night shift, away from his wife and kids, having left his home country in eastern Europe.
Igor’s answer: I’m in America! I have opportunities here! I have a chance at a life my parents and grandparents could only dream of!
This brought tears to my eyes. We are bombarded every day with the fringe-media’s view that America is evil. America is stupid. America is wrong. America is imperialistic. America is hopeless.
I’m sorry, but I refuse to believe that. I refuse to believe that you have nothing less than opportunity in America. You don’t have guarantees here, you have chances. If two guys go to work for the same company, on the same day, doing the same job, one WILL rise higher than the other, but that doesn’t mean that either of them had more or less chance to rise than the other one did.
The Left loves to proclaim that the Declaration of Independence guarantees happiness… NO! The DoI guarantees the “PURSUIT of happiness”, results may vary!
TheRoot.com (I will not link to them) had a list of 21 “Black folks we’d like to see removed from history”. On that list was Justice Clarence Thomas. Why? Because he “opposes government programs intended to help minorities”. I’m sorry, but slavery ended 147 years ago. Segregation of public schools: 52 years ago. Civil rights: 46 years ago (these dates are based on my memory and could be off by 2-3 years). I understand that because of these policies minorities have had less opportunity than others, but if you can’t get your act together in 46 years, YOU PROBABLY NEVER WILL UNLESS YOU ARE MADE TO!
How much more do you need? Minorities have college scholarships. They have affirmative action. They are given every opportunity to succeed in the world! If they continue to fall short of happiness, that’s there own damn fault! Yet, the media continues to paint this country as “racist”.
Allow me to explain something: You cannot call Obama “post-racial” if you still want to call someone “racist”. You cannot be “racist” if race is no longer considered. You cannot be “post-racial” if race is considered. Sorry guys, but you cannot have it both ways.
BTW – Am I the only one that thinks Chris “Tingles” Matthews is a racist? “I forgot he was black for about an hour”. That means when Matthews sees Obama, his FIRST (and, it could be argued, ONLY) thought is, “There’s a black man”. Funny, when I see Obama, I don’t see a “black man”, I see a “socialist man”. Just saying.
You might think I’m getting off point, but I’m not. I’m simply pointing out the hypocrisy and lunacy of the Left, and more to the point, the fringe media.
So, new rule: If you want to bitch about this country and claim that it needs to be like another country, you must live in said country for a period of no less than 5 years, WITHOUT CONTACT to those in the USA! Why? So that you get the full experience of that country. After 5 years, if you still want to change this country, go ahead and try (and we’ll fight you every step of the way). I’m sick and tired of hearing jackasses on the left say “We need to be like Canada” (anyone else notice their leaders come to America for health care… hmm….), or “We need to be like China”… IF YOU WANT TO LIVE IN A COUNTRY LIKE CANADA, CHINA, CUBA, RUSSIA, etc, GO LIVE THERE AND LEAVE US ALONE!
It pisses me off to no end that they teach revisionist history in school making the Chinese look “misunderstood” and calling Stalin “Uncle Joe”, and then kids grow up thinking that we are the bad guys. HELLO! MAO KILLED 60 MILLION CHINESE. I’ve seen reports that Stalin killed as many as 10 million! There is no viewpoint in which these men were anything but EVIL! And yet our kids look at them as heroes!
I will not stand by and allow this to happen any longer. If you want to teach this crap, then I will teach the REAL history! If you don’t like it, I don’t care!
To quote Andrew Breitbart: “We are on to you!” The media has lost its iron-clad grip on America’s mind, and now that we’re here, we’re not going away. We’re going to start fighting harder, using Alinsky’s tactics against the Left every day.
Get ready, the fun is about to start now!!!
