I KNOW that this is old news and that I WAY behind the curve on it, but I just got an e-mail from a friend reminding me of it, and since it didn't make a even minor ripple in the news curve when it happened, I thought it just might be good to remind everyone of it.....

It doesn't get any better than this:

Jessie Jackson added former Chicago Democrat congressman Mel Reynolds
to Rainbow/PUSH Coalition's payroll.

Reynolds was among the 176 criminals excused in President Clinton's last-minute forgiveness spree. Reynolds received a commutation of his
six-and-a-half-year federal sentence for 15 convictions of wire fraud,
bankfraud and lies to the Federal Election Commission. He is more notorious,
however, for concurrently serving five years for sleeping with an underage
campaign volunteer.

This is a first in American politics: An ex-congressman who had sex with a
subordinate...won clemency from a president who had sex with a
subordinate...then was hired by a clergyman who had sex with a

His new job? Youth counselor.


Some thoughts on our whole society that occurred to me after reading this:

1. Just WHICH party do all the participants belong to? Just saying, is all, no blanket indictments of the whole party.....

2. Why did this pass under the radar of just about everyone but a few pundits; and not very vehemently even with them?

3. Considering the types of sexual PC/education being promulgated in our public schools under the ageis of the NEA, with input from such august groups such as NAMBLA and GLSEN, and considering that the NEA is one of the pet programs of a certain party....and whose national leadership, in the main, belong to that same party....

The rank and file of that party always gave President Clinton a pass during his impeachment proceedings; saying it was "private conduct" that was a matter between the parties involved (Bill, Hillery, and Monica), even though there was ample evidence that this type of behaviour was a long standing feature of President Clinton's behaviour patterns even when he was Governor of Arkansas. They didn't even seem to care too much that he committed blatent perjury in court proceedings connected to the matter. (but at least the judiciary system itself thought it serious enough to disbar him)

Put all these things together, and you start to see a pattern emerge. Seems thats one reason that attacks against so called "religious fundementalists", indeed, religion in general, all seem to arise from that same party. After all, religion is about morality, and striking it from the public domain leads to a freedom to impose a non-judgemental public morality wherein almost anything can be excused, even if not condoned.

I make no indictments of that party, but I would ask all the ordinary citizens out there, just what do you think of a group that welcomes under it's umbrella those that:
1. would expose our children to the agendas of NAMBLA and GLSEN
2. promulgate the type of PC attitude that everything that the was the accepted American attitude MUST be subjegated to the worship of every other culture imaginable in the name of "diversity".
3. attacking the public display of religious principles that our country was founded upon.
(yes, as much as the revisionists might try to deny it, that phrase "That all men are endowed by THEIR CREATOR with certain unalienable rights" DID come from deeply held religious beliefs of the Founders)
4. attack the basic freedoms of self-protection embedded in the 2nd Amendment. (just look where the strictest gun regulation laws are, and you'll see that the local and state offices are dominated by this party) Remember that an unarmed populace is a more easily controlled populace.
5. resists every tax reduction for the general population that has ever come along. (ENACT the Fair Tax NOW!) Make the populace dependant on the state largesse for the amount of earnings they keep, and you control that populace.
6. proposed/s most of the "social welfare" type programs, where the State substitutes itself for private responsibility. (again, if your beholding to the State's largess, your controlled by the state)

Put all those facts into a shaker and mix well and then ask yourself if that is truly the cocktail that you wish to drink.

The other party isn't blameless either, at the very least, they refused to block the nameless party in most of these matters, and heartily joined in with them on others.

Now for my "solution", poor as it is. (unlike the party in question, I try not to point out problems without at least trying to propose even a weak solution to them)

Disavow ties to any one party, get informed, and get involved, don't vote for the party, vote for the individual that most represents your views, and hold them accountable if they don't hold to their proclaimed course.

Become informed/involved in your childs school and hold school officials to account for what they are exposing our children to. DON'T let our schools be merely State Indoctrination Centers, but return them to places of true education, where critical thinking and logic are keystones.

As much as possible, refuse to participate in state largess, depend on yourself for your own needs. (again, the Fair Tax would be a large step in this direction)

It will take time to change the current politcal/social climate, and progress will be measured in tiny increments, but always remember that we arrived in our present climate in tiny increments, lets keep what is good and discard that which can be shown to be counterproductive/harmful in the long term.

Most importantly, to use a Biblical phrase "hate the sin, but love the sinner"; use logic to combat your idiological opposits, not hyperboly that only serves to strengthen their resolve against you. Remember always that for the most part, they are trying to do what is right by their own lights, reasoned debate can lead to a compremise that can be lived with by both sides. With the hard core radical elements of both sides, just try to show the vast majority the ultimate consequences of those idiologies, and they will fade into the obscurity they deserve.

A friend accused me yesterday of "wearing rose colored glasses" when I was trying to bounce some of these same ideas off him...and perhaps he's correct, but I still have hope that if there are more idealists and dreamers like he accused me of being and fewer "we have no power to change anything" cynics like him, there still may be time to make our country achieve the noble goals set to us by our Founders. It will NEVER be perfect, but it CAN be better than it is now.
