Let’s say a white man were president and he had the same ideology as Obama, would the response by those Tea Party Patriots have been the same? You bet your sweet buns. Why? Because we love our country and don’t need anyone apologizing for her, we love our Constitution and are tired of both parties disregarding it after they swore on oath to protect it, and we also treasure our liberty which entails us, as individuals, to be responsible for ourselves, and not being slaves to any government.

Now that I have made my case as to why we oppose this president and it has nothing to do with race, we are called ‘racists’ because we disagree with the status quo (that being to agree with everything they believe in even though we do not).

When you call someone a ‘racist’, please make sure they are indeed a ‘racist’. It is the same as when a woman cries ‘rape’ after the fact because she is mad and it turns out not to be true. What happens to her when she is actually raped? That’s correct. People do not believe her. Worse than that, if there could be a worse, is the fact that it sets all women in a bad light. We have to fight very hard to get back to where we started from because of this.

When there is true racism, I want to know about it. I want it eradicated from our country. How can this happen when people like Maureen Dowd use this term so irresponsibly and often? She is not the only one by far, just the most recent.

Racism is a very hateful, ignorant, violent indecency that has plagued this nation long ago and sadly, still exists in some hearts. It is real, it is violent, it is ugly, and it should never be used as a means of shutting up the opposition when you have no other argument. Disagreeing with someone is not racist. You cannot judge another person’s words on your own perception of them. Maybe you are harboring something we should know about?

Well Maureen, you are very unintelligent and harmful to the actual meaning of the word ‘racism’. Because you give it so little thought or credence, you diminish the word. Is it because you live in a glass house? Is it because you have never slept with a black man? Yes, I said that. If you had, you might understand that racism is real and you don’t go throwing words like that around on a whim.

Racism is so serious that it scars people for life. As I was growing up, I was called a n******-lover. That is only half true. I loved a black man (he was a REAL man), and I wasn’t going to allow people like you to interfere with my life no matter how uncomfortable it made you feel. Did you ever stop to give a damn how you made me feel? No, you never did.

And now you’re trying to make up for it? You’re barking up the wrong tree, witch. If you only know how much I would rather use the other word! It is fitting, but I would like to think I’m above that. I know I’m not always, but at least I can admit it. Can you?

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

Below please find a press release that I never in my lifetime ever wanted to read.

Black Leader Calls for Special Counsel to Investigate Possible Voting Rights Corruption at Justice Department

Political Appointees Said to Overrule Career Staff in Election Intimidation Case

Washington DC: In light of a Washington Times report today that political appointees at the U.S. Department of Justice forced career prosecutors to drop and/or reduce charges against men observed intimidating Philadelphia voters last election day, Project 21 Chairman Mychal Massie is calling for the appointment of a special counsel to investigate this alleged obstruction of the Voting Rights Act by the Obama Administration.

“From all accounts, this was a clear-cut violation of peoples’ right to vote without fear and intimidation, but the Obama Administration appears to be trying to sweep it under the rug,” said Massie. “After all of the allegations about the Bush Administration politicizing the Justice Department, this smacks of either extreme ignorance or extreme hubris on the part of their successors. Whatever the case, an independent investigation is needed to get to the bottom of what’s going on over there.”

According to media reports, on November 4, 2008, Malik Zulu Shabazz, King Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense were seen on national television standing outside a Philadelphia polling place in military-style uniforms. Jackson was an official poll watcher that day, representing the 14th Ward Democratic Committee.

Bartle Bull, a long-time civil rights activist who was working as a poll watcher in the area, said in a government affidavit that he saw the men using a nightstick to intimidate voters. Bull said their “clear purpose” was to “intimidate voters with whom they did not agree.” He also said he heard them tell a white poll watcher, “you are about to be ruled by a black man, cracker.”

A civil suit filed by the Justice Department in January alleged the men violated the Voting Rights Act “by continuing to direct intimidation, threats and coercion at voters and potential voters.” After none of the men appeared in court to face the charges, the government sought a default judgment against them.

According to interviews and documents obtained by the Times, the lawyers were later ordered to reverse themselves and ask for the cases against Malik Zulu Shabazz and Jerry Jackson to be dismissed. A default judgment was pursued against King Samir Shabazz to simply prohibit him from displaying a weapon within 100 feet of an open polling place until November 15, 2012.

Justice Department spokesman Alejandro Miyar told the Times: “Claims were dismissed against the other defendants based on a careful assessment of the facts and the law.”

“We’ve got reports of one of the most blatant violations of the Voting Rights Act in recent memory, and the Obama Justice Department is essentially taking a pass. What’s wrong here?” asked Massie. “One could easily surmise that this is Chicago-style payback for helping Obama win the election. That would be a crime in Washington. The only way to find out who did what and for what reason is to bring someone in from the outside to get to investigate these very troubling allegations.”

The Washington Times article, “Career lawyers overruled on voting case; Black Panthers had wielded weapons, blocked polls,” by Jerry Seper, is available online here.

I have had a heart for the Persian people for quite a while now. It started when I found out about how the students were being dragged out of their houses, beaten, and thrown in prison. Evin prison is nothing like Gitmo. They really do torture you there. Several times a week, if not several times a day.

I find this appalling. This happens because these people commit the most terrible crime of actually desiring liberty and freedom and a republican form of government–frequently misquoted as democracy. Imagine that? No, I guess you cannot, because you want to free the jihadis in Gitmo. You are not the people I am writing to. Go away.

These people are not jihadis. They don’t want to harm anyone, and they desire to have human rights such as women’s’ rights (to live, to not be stoned to death because of someone else’s crime against them, etc), free and fair elections, and good riddance to the evil regime that stole control of their country. These are good people. Even if they do not want to live as we do, so what? I don’t like the way most of you live either! lol.

While this is one letter from one person, I can assure you there are many more voices in Iran that agree with him. Here is the letter the former political prisoner has written to President Barack Obama:

******************************
A Letter from former Iranian imprisoned student activist to President Barack Hussein Obama
.

Dear President Barack Hussein Obama,

We congratulate you and the American people on your election as the 44Th president of the United States. Your historic victory is cause for celebration for those who seek freedom and equality around the world. It is a triumph of democratic values and equal rights, a vindication for those around the world at the forefront of the struggle for civil rights.

The democratic institutions that enabled you, an African American, to become the highest ranking official in your country has awed people around the world. As you noted in your inauguration speech, the fact that the child of a man who, 60 years ago, may not have been permitted to enter a restaurant because of the color of his skin is now serving as leader of the nation, is testimony to the sacrifices of so many others during the painstaking historic progress of your land.

Mr. President, you ran your campaign on a promise of change, for both American domestic and foreign policies. Regarding your administration’s policy to Iran, you stressed the need for open and direct dialogue. As you know, Iranians are in the midst of a courageous fight for their most basic freedoms. The democratic movement in Iran, led by students, women’s rights activists, workers and human rights defenders, is violently repressed by the regime. The Iranian people, a majority of whom live in poverty despite their country’s natural resources, seek to determine their own destiny. They form a resilient base of support for the civic groups calling for a democratic Iran, respectful of the human rights of all Iranians.

The political structure of the Islamic Republic monopolizes power in the hands of one almighty Supreme Leader, a cleric appointed to lead for life. The system does not allow for peaceful change through legal means. The function of the president is reserved for Muslim Shi’a men, and only those among them who believe in the theocracy are elected through a process marred with fraud.. The president, whose function is merely administrative, implements the leader’s decisions and is unaccountable to the Iranian people.

We former student activists wish to address you as a progressive social reformer. In your policy making regarding Iran, you will contend with the whole gamut of ways Iran is a problem for the US: from the regime’s nuclear ambitions to its regional influence and support for terrorism around the world.

We call on you to pay special attention to the repressive, unaccountable nature of the regime that creates these problems and to keep focus on the Iranian people’s demands for democracy and human rights.

As the president of the United States of America, you must defend the interests of your country. We are certain you know that in this increasingly interconnected world, the long-term interests of your country can never be fully secured when others in foreign lands do not enjoy freedom.

Mr. President, you marked your first day in the White House by ordering the closure of the Guantanamo Bay prison. But in our country, many Guantanamo exist, only our Guantanamo are home to students, women’s rights activists, labor organizers, political activists, and journalists. We, as former student activists who spent time in Iranian prisons under inhumane conditions, call on you and all those who defend human rights, freedom and equality to express solidarity to the people of Iran as they wage their struggle for freedom.

– Akbar Atri, BA in Political Science from Alameh Tabataba’i University and MA in Political Theory from Mofid University in Qom University; member of the executive committee of Daftar Tahkim-e Vahdat, the umbrella group for Islamic student associations in Iran. He was tried and sentenced to seven years in prison by the Islamic Revolutionary Court for his pro-democracy activities.

-Ahmad Batebi, BA in Social Sciences from Payam Noor University and former member of Jebheye Motahed Daneshjoo’I (a secular student group). He was arrested during the July 1999 students protest and sentenced to death. His sentence was reduced to 15 years in prison.

– Farzad Hamidi, MD from Oroumieh University. Former student activist member of the Iran Demorcratic Front, he was arrested several times and spent three years in prison.

– Hamid Alizadeh, MD from Tehran University and former member of Jebheye Motahed Daneshjoo’I (a secular student group). He was arrested during the July 1999 student protests and spent one year in prison.

– Kianoosh Sanjari, student of Art in Sama University of Sari and member of Jebheye Motahed Daneshjoo’I (a secular student group). He was banned from university because of his pro-democracy activities. He was arrested 9 times and spent two years in prison.

– Koorosh Sehati, student of Agricultural Engineering and member of Jebheye Motahed Daneshjoo’I (a secular student group). He was a student activist during the July 9, 1999 student demonstrations. He was banned from university and spent two years in prison for his pro-democracy activities.

-Manouchehr Mohammadi, student of Economy in Tehran University and Head of Ettehadieh Melli Daneshjooyan va Faregh ol Tahsilan (a secular student association). He was expelled from the university for his pro-democratic activities and arrested during the 1999 student protest and sentenced to 15 years in prison. He fled from prison after 8 years of incarceration.

******************************

As for you, President Obama, do not meet with Ahmadinejad. Stop apologizing to foreigners for America. Take a moment to ponder this question: “What would the world look like if America had never existed?”

You have an opportunity here to do something great, help the people of Iran. President Bush had Congress pass the Iranian Accountability Act. There is money in that account that was never spent, because it went to the State Dept. This is one more reason I hate the State Dept. It is NOT for the spread of condoms, it is for the spread of a repuclican form of government and freedom. They get to determine the final say as to how the government is run. The government is supposed to be by the people, for the people and responsive to the people. This is what we should be promoting.

Use this money in a way that these human rights groups and activists in Iran can unite against their evil regime. They will make sure there is no nuclear weapon, and they will become free, maybe even an ally. They hate those mullahs, the same ones you are going to try to appease. Please don’t do a Jimmy Carter. You are making us appear weak. They cannot afford America’s shame by us jimming up their evil dictator. Our country cannot afford it either! Thank you.

For my readers: I remember writing many letters and signing several more petitions to see these people released. Batebi is also an escaped prisoner. He managed to escape a few years ago.

I’m not asking you to sign any petitions. I’m not asking you to write any letters. I am asking you to open your eyes to understand that we could face an Iran with nuclear weapons or we could face an Iran that is peaceful. Probably even our ally. Yes, they do like America. That’s the dirty little secret the press does not want you to know.

These people do not want us to invade their country. No. They just want the assistance so they may do this on their own in their own way. They want the life that you and I share. We are that shining light upon the hill. I’m asking you to care, pay attention, get educated. If you have any questions, e-mail me. I do what I can to help you. Thank you for your time.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can walk along side Him again.

“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.”

–Declaration of Independence

It’s awfully hard to enjoy the other rights when the people have decided (by judicial fiat and constitutional ignorance) to allow the right to life be perverted by the public in their policies. These are not man (OR WOMAN) given rights, therefore governments nor people may vote them out of existence. WAKE UP! We have been committing genocide against our children for too long. How long will this go on? Until the people rise up and revolt against this injustice. Which side of this war will you be on?

Now that homosexuals have won in the courts in California and Massachusetts, not through the legislative process which they continually fail to win, these states have claimed they must abide by the court’s orders to ‘marry’ same-sex people. Beside this being preposterous, it has the potential to do much harm to our Military.

Number one, the people – no one else – determine which powers the judicial, the legislatures, and the governors and president may encroach upon us as predetermined as necessary to run the country. They cannot just run over us whimsy-nilly anyway they desire, and the courts are about to reach the precipice. Now they are demanding we allow the minority rule (3%) over the majority? Since when when?

How does this harm the our Mililtary? If a person joins the Military as a single man or woman, then they ‘marry’ someone of the same sex but does not tell anyone (don’t ask, don’t tell), won’t the Military be obligated to pay for this person’s spouse? What if they adopt a child? Won’t we have to give them child allowances? What about divorces? Who gets custody? What if the spouse goes into the hospital? Won’t they get leave to visit?

After this goes on for a while, do you really believe that – even though they are less than 3 percent of the population – they demand equal treatment under the LAW? WHAT LAW??? See, this is where the problem arises.

In the year 2000 in California, voters sent a huge message that MARRIAGE is between one man and one woman. Period. The most liberal state, yet they know that deep down it is in the best interest for all children and society as a whole that marriage was, is, and always will be the best foundation for American society. Our LAWS demand that MARRIAGE is between one man and one woman.

This has not been changed through the legislature nor by the voters. As a matter of fact, we already have enough signatures to have this on the ballot again in November, only this time as a Constitutional Amendment.

You would think the court would consider the trauma to the people who think they are ‘married’ but come to find out WE MEANT OUR VOTES. But no, they decided to go ahead and let them do this atrocity. I call it this an atrocity because it will surely destroy some people’s hearts to find out, once again, that the rest of America may not care what you do in private, but we are not going to let you redefine marriage.

To impose this court ruling upon our Military will only change our Military to have less and less men and more homosexuals. I cannot watch a tv program that doesn’t have a homosexual in it. Do you remember what happened with the Catholic Church scandals? Is that what you want from our Military? Or would you rather say, ‘Forget political correctness, I’d rather stay alive.’? I know what side of this issue I come down on.

I believe the Military has it right. There has to be rules of conduct and regulations on certain behaviors. Otherwise, we may lose everything and the first to be persected would be the same people who are the ones fighting so hard to make it so. It is a sad state of affairs. Just ask the people in Iran.

One more tiny little thing. What about MY rights? Am I to be scorned because I believe in God? Do my rights and beliefs not matter because somehow you disagree with me? Then go for it, I will not take you to court over it. The most I will do is pray for you. Whatever happened to live and let live? God help us all.

THIS IS MY OWN OPINION, AND IT DOES NOT REFLECT ANYONE ELSE FROM THIS SITE.

Today French President Sarkozy has put pressure on China to open up or else…

BEIJING — French President Nicholas Sarkozy stepped up the pressure on China Saturday over its handling of the Tibet crisis by warning he may boycott the Olympic opening, following fresh violence.

Sarkozy’s warning, delivered by one of his ministers in the Le Monde newspaper, also came shortly after China said it would step up a controversial “education” campaign for Tibetans in an effort to end nearly a month of unrest.

Sarkozy will only attend the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony if China opens dialogue with exiled Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama and frees political prisoners, French Secretary of State for Human Rights Rama Yade said. [Continue reading.]

Now if only we had a state department and an administration that understood that ‘peace at all costs’ and ‘money is the end all to beat all’ is NOT good for human rights and societies as a whole, we may be a better people and a better country.

Shame on you, President Bush. Saying you will go to the opening ceremonies no matter what is NOT very democratic. You could have at least made the comment that President Sarkozy has made. He is at least reconsidering. China is sweating in the pants, and you? You are probably eating Chinese food and continuing to ignore all the world as we cry with the Chinese people for freedom.

You have disappointed me again. What next? A statue of Mao on the White House lawn?
