Mankind Continues Achieving Despite Our Toxic Intellectuals

E-mail Print PDF

With amazing brevity, Dr. Michael Berliner used the inspirational achievement of the recent Mars landing to demonstrate what toxic fools modern intellectuals are. His letter was published on August 9, 2012 in the Los Angeles Times:

http://articles.latimes.com/2012/aug/09/opinion/la-le-0809-thursday-mars-20120809  

“The amazingly accurate landing of Curiosity on Mars is yet another confirmation of the lesson preached by many intellectuals for hundreds of years: Knowledge is impossible, reason is impotent, there is no certainty, truth is relative, reality is unknowable, achievement is an illusion, man is doomed, and life is defeat.

“Oh, wait, that's not the lesson of the Mars landing?”

 

If we don’t do it who will?

Uncle Sam“If we don’t do it who will?” is often the appeal to get someone motivated, to get something done. But look around you and really answer the question. Who will? Sometimes I think there's nobody out there.

Take the “Chick-fil-a” incident last week. Maybe a strange place for me to make my point, after all didn't thousands take the time to make a statement in favor of the first amendment by dining there? Sure they did, and good for them and good for you if you did. But now what?

Anita Montcrief is an ACORN whistleblower and knowledgeable expert on Leftist Ideology and funding sources. In these two 9 minute videos she tells the hidden story of ACORN-Leftist corruption of our election system at the C-PAC Orlando, FL meeting in September 23, 2011. She exposes ACORN’s “wish list” which includes: universal health care, Card Check, Cap & Trade, and vastly increased power fro the EPA to destroy industry. (a tip o' the hat to Paul Saunders for this find)

What do you have that you did not receive?

LVTP logoWe 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...

 


That is called “The American Creed” because that is the idea of America. America is often called the only nation not based on a people, race, culture, or even geography – but that it is a nation based on an idea. And of all the passages in America's founding documents that creed is the undisputed embodiment of that idea. With those ideas as a foundation a country like ours can emerge. And we, over two centuries later, can look back on what our founders have done with a feeling of immense gratitude.

“If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”

That quote is commonly attributed to Issac Newton, the famous 17th century scientist. The meaning is generally understood that we, in the present generation, see further because we have benefited from the efforts of those of previous generations. It has an all-encompassing scope in that practically everything we enjoy is because somebody before us has discovered, invented, or prepared the way. No generation begins from scratch. We, those of us in the present, did not discover fire, invent the wheel, or blaze the routes that eventually became our highways. Somebody else did that.

Civilization, technology, and this country are all gifts that we received when we were born into this nation. We have always understood the need to build on this legacy and to pass it on to those that follow. But now, just how that is accomplished is being called into question.

This didn't happen overnight, and it wasn't a plot foisted on us by some shadowy group. We have done it to ourselves. People can't even agree when it started. Some will say the 60's, others go back a hundred years, and still others say it's the inexorable decline that happens whenever any society grows lax in safeguarding itself. I'm talking about bankruptcy – fiscal, moral, and social bankruptcy. Forty cents of every dollar our government spends is borrowed money. An unsustainable practice that can best be described as a crime against the next generation. And the “American Creed” - the idea that governments are instituted to secure our rights, not the materialism of entitlements – has not been successfully taught and passed on.

“What do you have that you did not receive?”

You may have recognized that the title of this piece is a Bible verse (1st Corinthians 4:7) or you may have thought it was a reference to some current political campaign silliness (“You didn't build that!") The ambiguity is the point and selling government as the source of your blessings is the sin, so to speak. And it's nothing new, or particular to one administration or party. Before this we had something called “compassionate conservatism” and “faith based” initiatives. A competition between politicians to see who is the best “brother's keeper” is leaving us broke and far from the American Creed. That is what is happening. The previous administration gave us “Medicare Part D”, the current tops that with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare). Government becomes the Good Samaritan and we all get to cross to the other side of the street in good conscience (Luke 10:25-37)

Being grateful for the freedoms (and roads, teachers, firemen, police) we enjoy in this country was always expressed in patriotism - stepping up to defend your country, volunteering, charity, community pride and functions. Now it's been reduced class envy and paying your taxes. This has to be done because more money is needed to provide for the ever growing list of entitled benefits. The latest is free cell phones and cell service for anyone already on assistance.

It is just a continual grab for money - there is only one reason to soak the rich, and it's the same reason thieves rob banks - because that is where the money is. Money that is being deemed better spent by the government than by the people who earned it. It is as simple as that, there's no fairness or morality behind it. Even middle class homes have been targeted by some local governments, transferred to large corporations for the promise of higher tax revenues with the court's blessing. It's just a constant greedy grubbing for money by the government class (R's and D's) that thinks it's their job to spend it. Those who rail against corporations for unfair practices often fail to realize that government itself has been becoming the most corrupt and greedy of all corporations, handing out loan guarantees and out-right grants to favored businesses. A government constrained to the limits of the “American Creed” could not grant favored status on others.

We need the return of "The American Creed".

FirecrackerLooking for silver linings

After Thursday's Supreme Court ruling upholding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare) the pundits have been giving their various opinions on whether there's a “silver lining” in it or not. You've heard them I'm sure. Things like, “now the opposition to ObamaCare will be energized!” or “Justice Roberts is playing chess while everyone else is playing checkers!”.

I've heard just a few statements from the “non-pundit” class that I will put more stock into than all the talking heads put together.

The Supreme Court Decision on Obamacare

E-mail Print PDF

Court House with Scales of Justice

Press Release from the Lehigh Valley 9/12 Group/Tea Party 6/29/2012

Re: The Supreme Court Decision on ObamaCare

The Lehigh Valley 9/12 Group/Tea Party is greatly disappointed in the Supreme Court’s decision ruling that ObamaCare can be regarded as constitutional if the associate fees are treated as a tax. This ruling sets a precedent for giving license to the federal government to impose similar demands covering any product or service it determines are “in our best interests”. It is a tragic blow to both state and individual sovereignty and represents a substantial and frightening loss of individual freedom.

The details about the hundreds of little tyrannies in this law are only of secondary concern. The unifying fundamental battlefield to fight for ObamaCare’s repeal is—that the law violates the unalienable individual rights of medical professionals and patients to freely make choices that are theirs by right and by the blood of the hallowed line of patriots who died to protect those rights.

Hopefully this constitutional assault will awaken all those citizens who have not yet become aware of the concerted effort of “liberal progressives” to transform our government into a centralized socialist state.

As Justice Roberts has said “It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices”. That is why we, the voting public, must do our homework and know the voting record of the ones we elect into office.

The Lehigh Valley Tea Party meets the first Friday of the month at the Chrin Community Center. For more information go to our website at www.lvtp.org
