Rewarding Bad Behavior – Today’s Quote

Rewarding Bad Behavior – Today’s Quote

I believe the election and reelection of [President] Obama were among the most conspicuous acts of denial in recent years. Voters just stopped paying attention. They accepted consistently bad behavior and rewarded it. They then wonder why they get more bad behavior. Of course many in opposition dare not challenge the behavior because they’re too obsessed with race and political correctness. In [President] Obama’s case we’ve enabled affirmative action to find a home in the nation’s highest office. There you have it. I said it and I stand by it. America fell for the gimmick candidate, disregarding every fact and warning sign in the rush to have “the first African-American president.” We were told to shut up, and a complicit media became part of the scheme.” Former U.S. Representative and...

Picking Up A Pack Of Trojans – Today’s Quote

The opportunity society tells individuals that their rights, as granted by their Creator, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The dependency society confuses privileges with rights and sells everything as a right: the right to own a home, rights based on sexuality, a right to birth control–that one I can’t really understand. What prevents manufactured women’s rights advocate Sandra Fluke or anyone else from walking into CVS or Walgreens and picking up a pack of Trojans for the weekend? Former U.S. Representative and U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Allen West from his book Guardian of the Republic: An American Ronin’s Journey to Faith, Family and...

The Epidemic In West’s Neighborhood – Today’s Quote

When I revisit my neighborhood in Atlanta, I see the blight facing most urban neighborhoods: Section 8 housing, food stamps, EBT card signs, and the breakdown of the family. Of all the consequences of the Great Society programs and the War on Poverty, intended or otherwise, the destruction of the black family has been the most disastrous. More than 70 percent of black children are born outside of marriage. That is an epidemic. Former U.S. Representative and U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Allen West from his new book Guardian of the Republic: An American Ronin’s Journey to Faith, Family and...

Newspeak Dictionary Updates

If it’s been a while since you checked out Prepography’s Newspeak, A Modern Political Dictionary…take a look as there are a number of Newspeak Dictionary updates including: Common Sense Reform:  Newspeak term used to ‘sell’ the abridgement of freedom.  By incrementally passing ‘common sense reforms’ freedoms can be legislated out of existence in just a few years.  Many of these ‘common sense reforms’ are initiated rapidly in response to a tragic or emotional incident…almost as if the freedom abridging proposal was sitting on the shelf just waiting so that the political elites don’t have to let “a serious crisis to go to waste” (to use the words of the former Obama Administration Chief of Staff and current Chicago Mayor, Rahm...
