A discussion of sacrifice, remembrance, and why we should say "Honor Memorial Day" instead of "Happy Memorial Day."
What happened in Buffalo was horrendous. But the politicized exploitation and hypocrisy of the left is just as horrible.
The ideological agenda of the progressive socialist left supports killing American babies in the womb and killing Americans via drug overdoses. If we do not restore our regard for the rule of law, our Constitution, our future is in question.
Okay, it is now two weeks in a row that the progressive socialist left has been in an apoplectic meltdown. Last week it was all about a federal judge in Florida saying what everyone knew to be true: the CDC doesn't have authority to mandate anything to the American people. This week, the left is going nuts because one Elon Musk, a private entrepreneur, has purchased Twitter. Heavens to mergatroids, the world is coming to an end. Yes, the empty threats of getting off Twitter and moving to Canada pervade, neither of which will happen. Leftists did not care about Musk starting Tesla, and the government subsidies that come with buying electric vehicles. Leftists did not care when Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post, where truth does tend to die in their darkness. Leftists had no problem with Michael Bloomberg -- what political persuasion is he today? -- bought an entire news media platform. Leftists have no issue with Mark Zuckerberg owning Facebook/Meta, whatever, and using his war chest to give Zuckerbucks to selected County elections offices, like Harris County in Texas. So what has the left in such a tizzy?
Chances are if you say the word "Florida" to a progressive socialist leftist they will go into a frothing apoplectic rage. Now, I live in Texas and I wish that saying "Texas" would do the same, but perhaps that is the topic of another missive. Under the leadership of Governor Ron DeSantis, the State of Florida has truly become a thorn in the side of leftists. How dare anyone stand up to the left's agenda, and not capitulate to some doggone woke corporate fascist oligarch, like a Disney.
I pray everyone had a truly blessed Resurrection weekend; that is what this past weekend was about. It was about one person, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, laying down His life for us to have eternal life. Last week I was honored to narrate Haydn's string quartet, The Last Seven Words of Christ on the Cross. It was humbling to read and explain the meaning of Christ's final words spoken from the cross.As well, this weekend allowed me to reflect back on some other words, four of which are the title of this missive. They are words that some men and women have vowed over the years in America. They are the words that have committed these Americans to sacrifice and perhaps make the last full measure of devotion—to give their lives--so that others can have life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Greetings everyone, well, it has come and gone, another tax day is under our belts. I found it very interesting that during the Obama administration ol' Barry Soetoro started referring to government spending as "investments." Ya gotta give it to the leftists, they are master manipulators of language. But the use of the word "investment" begs the question of, what is our return on investment (ROI) as American taxpayers?
Greetings everyone and a Blessed Holy Week to you. I pray we never forget that it was just two short years ago that the Covid Crisis Tyrants sought to shut down Holy Week in America. And in many ways, these delusional usurpers of our Constitutional rights, freedoms, and liberties are not relenting.
This past Thursday evening at the University of Buffalo (UB) I was invited by the Young America's Foundation Chapter at UB to deliver a presentation on “Race and American Exceptionalism.” Before I even arrived, the nature of my visit was made controversial when students on the campus ripped down flyers and even conducted a campus walking protest. Therefore, I knew this would be quite the hostile environment. The question I have is, why?
Recall the theme of Joe Biden's presidential address, "Unity”. Well, that was a bunch of bovine excrement, as we would say here in Texas. The real theme of Biden's speech, and the mantra of the progressive socialist left is "conformity". And if you actually paid attention to Biden's address you would have surmised the consequences and ramifications of non-conformity. Simply stated, you will be disparaged, denigrated, demeaned, arrested, targeted, and unconstitutionally detained.
