In Congress, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed – The Declaration of Independence
The black lives matter movement rising up, and in my mind fueled by Antifa is detrimental to the life and Liberty for all Americans. Antifa is anti fascism at all cost, including violence, but what they actually stand for is extremely grey when you look at the meaning of the word. Mostly Antifa is just group of thugs trying to overthrow the government and replace it with Anarchy. Most of the Black Lives backers are wonderful people standing up for Life and Liberty of all mankind regardless of race and Gender, but are spurred by percieved and sometimes real racisim within law enforcement. To that end Our Creator and all thinking humans stand in solidarity with their movement. We live in a wonderful country enjoying freedoms than few enjoy. The United States of America is full of opportunity for all who look for it and are willing to do what it takes to make their dreams a reality. Few ever make it to the top, but everyone has the right to rise from the bottom. Everyone has equal rights to college education if they have the test scores, and the financial ability to cover it. Many organizations lobby for tax dollars for Grants and Loans that allow the poorest of society to attend college. This is not a free ride, it takes lots of work, I worked 40 Plus hours per week, took advantage of Grants and loans, and in today’s dollars owed $31,000 in federal student loans. I eventually paid back those loans, College did not make me wealthy, but it made me more able to see and understand opportunities that I could leverage to pursue my dreams. These oportunities are available to everyone who is willing to struggle, regardless of race, gender, religion and so on. Sadly, Black people, Indian people, and Irish people among others did not always have these opportunities, it was through proper political lobying and proper use of law enforcement that we recieved these rights in the United States. Yes, even with the Declaration of Independence, we were that blind.
Today, I see lots of chosen racial discrimination. I have met the worst of humanity on the east coast, when I wondered into a black neighborhood. I had hardly believed racism existed until I was confronted by black people for being white on their turf. I saw the same attitude among many of America’s southern lower income whites. Everyone seems to think the other class (White, Black, Hispanic, Christian, Rich, Middle class, dirt poor) of person is the scourge of the earth. Truth be told we are all guilty of putting ourselves in a better class than our neighbor. It is human nature, to be a legend in ones own mind. Maybe it is a form of self preservation, we know our evils, but if we can blame it on the other guy we don’t have own up to responsibility. Attitude is everything.
My beef with Black Lives Matter is the fact that they team up with violent groups to get what they want. Now they are spending money, time, and expending human lives to disband police departments. They make their point by destroying government buildings, retail stores, and murdering people in the streets; all in the name of stopping police brutality. The brutal truth is, no matter who is enforcing the law, we will end up with some really bad apples. Police, are made up of humans, and police have to suffer for crime just as the rest of us do. Don’t take out your hatred of what a few bad police officers have done. Your mugging the choir. We hate what they do too. There are better ways to make bad people who are in charge pay for their crimes. Quartzsite police Cheif Removed
Our government has been designed to withstand MOB justice, but our government has checks and balances in place to keep the bad from overriding the good. Please stop burning down your country, and take the time to learn the justice system, and use it to your advantage. Burning, looting and killing our neighbors is not the answer. Being angry is understandable, but use your anger in a constructive and intelligent manner. Anarchy will ruin everyone!
Anger can be valuable, it can fuel change, but be careful what you ask for. True equality will never exist. Make sure the Tyranny you are escaping is worst than the one you are creating.
One night, all the animals at Mr. Jones’ Manor Farm assemble in a barn to hear old Major, a pig, describe a dream he had about a world where all animals live free from the tyranny of their human masters. old Major dies soon after the meeting, but the animals
Additional food for thought… The book 1984 was better, but this what I have. It looks like 1984 passed us by, but technology is finally here to finally afford a new world order.
Have a good evening and good night…. and please don’t burn down our supply chain, I personaly like to eat. I have photos to prove it…
