In My Opinion

In My Opinion
Kevin Bryant
We all have opinions. Many of us voice them whether they are solicited or not. It’s just human nature to have them and quite often our opinions do not match those around us. Most everything I write here is opinion and sometimes you agree with me and sometimes you don’t. When I state an opinion I do try to clarify my position. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fall way short of the measure but at least you get some sense of how I arrived at it.
I’m going to touch on a few subjects today that are “taboo”. Why are they taboo? It’s because political correctness has gone too far in America to allow for free and open discussion on the subjects. As a nation we are so afraid of hurting someone’s feelings, we have almost forgotten how to be truthful with one another.
For far too long “political correctness” has turned people into victims. If you say welfare turns people into slaves of the government, people pretend to be offended by the use of the word slave. Liberal blacks even scold conservative blacks for using the term slave or slavery in the same context that I just did yet, and correct me if I am wrong, I believe it’s less than 15% of all blacks in America can trace their roots or their ancestry to slavery. Why is it an offensive word? It is because race baiting individuals like Emanuel Cleaver, James Clyburn, Sheila Jackson, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and a host of others are making money off blacks by portraying blacks as victims of society. According to all them, whites in America are inherently racist against blacks and even saying the word slavery no matter the context with which it is used is offensive. If anyone has a right to be sensitive to the word slavery, it’s Jews. Blacks were slaves for what, approximately a couple of hundred years, Jews were slaves for a couple of thousands of years yet they don’t complain about it. They don’t try to use it to gain something for nothing. They say white people in America are racist towards blacks. Sorry Jesse, Al and company, the world has been racist against the Jews almost since the dawn of man. When blacks in America reach the same level of racism the Jews have endured, then I will stand beside you and defend your stance. Until that day arrives, no way will I ever classify you as a victim. There is not one black in America that has does not have the opportunity to succeed in this country if they are willing to put forth the same effort it takes a white person of equal stature.
“The federal government should make gay marriage legal in the United States”. I hear that one a lot. Why should the federal government even have a say in the issue. Most gays believe that heterosexuals are prejudice against them. They have been conditioned to believe this by the Fred Phelps of the world. The institution of marriage has been around longer than the Bible and the Quran. Both state marriage is between a man and a woman. The only difference is the Bible does not teach that gays should be stoned to death. Most heterosexuals do not have a problem with civil unions or any other ceremony that unites same sex couples except when the term “marriage” is used. I personally do not have a problem with same sex couples but I, like many others do have a problem calling it a marriage. Marriage was instituted by God through his teachings. The Bible, which has certainly been around longer than any federal government of any country has defined marriage as the union between a man and a woman. It was the government who saw potential profit and made people get a license to get married. My opinion, call it anything you want, just don’t call it a marriage because it does not fit the historical or religious definition of the word and since the word originated within religion, I don’t believe the government has a right to trample it. If the people vote to allow it to be called a marriage in their state, then I will support the states decision, but to have just a state legislature or some judge sitting on a bench decides to make it a law, I will oppose it.
Why is it that roughly 95% of all “hate crimes” that are prosecuted committed by white people? If a white man shoots a black man it’s a hate crime. If a Hispanic shoots a white man it’s not a hate crime. If a black shoots a Hispanic, it’s not a hate crime. I believe if anyone shoots another in a manner other than self defense, it’s a hate crime. If one man beats up another it’s most likely a hate crime. Why is there even a race factor involved? Hate is hate and crime is crime. If Lady Justice is supposed to be blind, why are we making her open her eyes to see what color of skin the people involved are? Hate crime legislation is nothing more than affirmative action for court cases. It does nothing but promote racial differences and further divide us as a nation.
Then there is illegal immigration. The laws concerning illegal immigration in this country is quite clear. The final draft of the constitution states “We The People of the United States”. The constitution was established by and for the citizens of the United States. Nowhere in the constitution do you find the word Mexico. If you aren’t here legally, get out. Come back legally, become a productive member of society and I will welcome you to this country with open arms. My ancestors came here legally, they became citizens legally, they adapted to America and did not try to make America adapt to them and their beliefs. Those here illegally insult us as a nation, they insult those that died forming and defending this nation and they mock us as a nation. Those who like to proclaim America stole California, Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and parts of other states, here is my reply. Mexico started a war with the U.S., Mexico lost. In order for Mexico to continue to be a sovereign nation, they ceded territory instead of having the U.S. army come in and take everything from them. If you don’t like it, go back to Mexico, become El Presidente, declare war on the U.S. and take it all back. Until then, get out of my country and should you choose to come back, do it legally.
There is always going to be differences of opinions. There is always going to racism so long as people allow others to get rich off promoting differences and proclaiming someone a victim of injustice based on race or sexual orientation.
These are my opinions and I welcome yours.

Truth and Obama

Truth and Obama
William G Burmer
Mitt Romney recently asked Obama to apologize for statements made by his rĂ©gime calling him a “felon” because of alleged cover-ups of off shore financial assets. Never mind the facts or the truth with these regards. The tacit approval of Obama with these accusations sinks below the dignity of his office, however---he doesn’t care. No communist, ego centric, blow hard ever cares about truth or what is morally right; not even the United Nations, which are filled with Obama’s’ closest friends and allies.
Obama, Pelosi, Reid and their minions, like Hitler, Chairman Mao, Hugo Chaivez, Stalin, Ho Chi Minh, and a long list of others are, or were, never interested in the concepts of integrity, truth, justice, fair play, selflessness or morality. Their only interest is their political power and the destruction of anyone or anything that might threaten their ideology.
World War II was the only War fought upon two continents, where there was a full all out, no holds successful exposure of Communist dictators in the world. Even up to the beginnings of the 20th century the Jewish people were hunting down those responsible for the holocaust, found in Venezuela and other parts of South America. After trial they either hung them or shot them in the head. It took two H-Bombs to bring a reluctant end to Japans treachery under Hirohito.
It did not end with World War II as we know, Korea, Viet Nam followed with a longer list of conflicts in the Middle East to date. One thing we should have learned with all of this bloodshed is that Evil exists in governments that choose to control or dominate its people. Religious faith deteriorates, Ignorance is perpetuated, fools and idiots thrive and good people suffer. The Father of America had it right when he counseled us with these words:
“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . Let it simply be asked, where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” George Washington’s “farewell Address”
I pray Mitt Romney can somehow influence Congress after his election to restore such virtues to our political system, our nation and our people; this is my hope, I pray it would be yours as well. I shudder to consider what it will be like if fuehrer Obama is re-elected.

Dear Patriots

Dear Patriots:
William G Burmer
Ever wonder how anyone, even a politician, can live with themselves telling lies, half truths, re-writing or manipulating history to suite their personal view of the World? It is done with such regularity, as we are aware; the lie is becoming the “New Truth.” My greatest concern is for our youth, our children, Grandchildren and Great Grand Children. I have secured a small library for them in my office beginning with Sacred Scripture, and have encouraged them to read from it at their leisure.
Certain People’s hearts appear to have become cold, unfeeling, and indifferent about Truth. Even one in my own family has declared that “your truth is not my truth,” Frankly such a declaration disgusts me to the very core. The blame remains squarely upon his parents and a deteriorating educational system of the last 40 years.
Simple logic should seem sufficient to declare that Truth is synonymous with accurate knowledge or a product of it. Without Knowledge, truth may not be found. This throws the burden of discovering truth upon the individual. Herein lies another important element in mans quest for truth, that is, Agency. With this element a man is free to search to study, read, criticize, analyze and debate. Agency allows the mind and intellect to indulge the idea that there is a power greater than self. Where mans Spirit and his God lifts his soul to a higher place of understanding and agreement. A place as declared by our Savior where “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:32
The real value of truth comes from that of compelling us to give up untruths. This is one of the most difficult things for most people to achieve. A man will say almost anything, give reasons and excuse to infinity before he will declare “I was wrong, or I was in error.” Our Savior Jesus Christ declared . . . “If the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is the darkness.” We each have a need to humble ourselves, to change our minds, to demand the exit of an old truth long cherished for a new or greater truth so that we might progress further than we previously believed possible.
It is not easy for men to give up their vanities, to overcome their preconceived notions, and surrender themselves, heart and soul to the will of God. In as much as we know, to spite their individual and or collective human foibles, our founders created for us a Great Nation predicated upon Gods Laws. If we will but learn, line upon line, precept upon precept, truth, and walk in its light we shall be free from the errors of men and of their secret crafts. Thus, all mankind, especially our leaders might learn to walk above suspicion, above wrong of every description. Without question our Nation and its people will be approved of God and He will bless us, and He will cause us to prosper and flourish in this great land we love to call America.

Back to Basics

Back To Basics
Kevin Bryant 

When a team isn’t hitting, or fielding or tackling or making free throws, what is the first thing the coach says? Usually it’s something about going back and practicing the basics of the game. Your child is having problems with algebra like I did, go back to the basics. It seems simple I theory but in reality sometimes it’s a royal pain to put into practice. We get so caught up in the way we put our own little spin on things that we just can’t seem to let them go, slow down and be willing to start over.  

Have you ever had a new boss who comes in and the first thing they want to do is change the way things are done? Doesn’t matter if it’s the processes you use or the contractors and vendors you have always used. Sometimes it’s the brand of coffee in the break-room because he or she likes something different. Welcome to the United States Government 

The government has gotten so far off the track of what it is and how it’s supposed to operate that those who grew up in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s don’t even recognize it. The great equalizer of big oppressive government is supposed to be the supreme court, but as we have witnessed over the past couple of decades is even they have forgotten what their specific role in government is.  

There is no magic reset button we can hit. There is no quick fix to right a stray government. It will take a generation to fix all that is wrong with government, and the only way to fix it is to return it back to the basics of what it was meant to be.

Lawyers make up almost all of congress and almost all the presidents we have had over the last century. Go back 200 years ago and who do you find in those positions of power? You have land owners, merchants, businessmen, farmers, ranchers ………..the actual job creators. Anyone who tells you government is not a business is only fooling themselves. The U.S. Government is the biggest business enterprise in the world. Lawyers don’t run business, they regulate business. Lawyers don’t work the land, they regulate its usage. Putting a lawyer in charge of the government is closely related to putting prisoners in charge of the prison.

Justice Roberts the other day described accurately how to get the government back to basics, you fire the people in place and you hire new ones. The federal government refuses to regulate itself. It refuses to abide by the laws it creates yet holds us accountable when we act just like them .…. the lawyers. Lawyers were meant to interpret and defend the law, not make the law. Vote every one of them out of office.

Resetting the government back to basics will take a minimum of 24 years. America needs to be united and committed if they want their country back from the lawyers who control it. Lawyers are referred to as snakes for a reason. This should not be a conservative or a liberal idea but an American idea. Who is better suited to teach your children, someone committed to teaching children because it is their passion or someone who does it but is committed to the teacher’s union? Who is better to take in money, account for the money and spend the money, accountants, business leaders and economist or lawyers? Who is better to decide the path of a business like the government, a CEO or a lawyer?  

We all need to dedicate 2012 as the beginning of getting back to basics and taking our government back and the best way to start is taking it out of the hands of the lawyers who control it.

Groups Obama Does Not Like

Groups Obama Does Not Like
Kevin Bryant 

There are not too many people in America that Obama likes. You never see him golf (100 rounds and counting) with anyone but his close knit circle members. Dick Cheney may have shot his friend but at least he has friends to hang out with.  

Obama doesn’t like white middle class America. David Axelrod stated on the Sunday talk shows some time back that the Obama campaign was not going to try and go after white working class America. I wonder why? Since Obama has taken office, the value of my house has dropped roughly 23%. My gross household income has dropped 42% and my disposable income as dropped over 70%. All this and I am one of the lucky ones, I can still afford (barely) to make my house payments and all the bills that come with ownership.

Obama doesn’t like Hispanics. Not a single member of his inner circle is Hispanic? Not one member of his cabinet is Hispanic. Not one of his 30 something czars were Hispanic. Carter, Reagan, Bush 41 & 43 and Clinton all had Hispanics either in their inner circle or as members of their cabinet. He proved this when he signed his executive order granting what truly is amnesty to all those here illegally between the age of 18 & 30. He basically told those who are here illegally, “You people are suckers for going though the system”. If I were a legal immigrant I would be totally ticked off for rewarding those didn’t come here legally while I invested time, money and effort to do what was right.  

Obama doesn’t like lower middle class and poor blacks. If he did, he wouldn’t allow those here illegally to take jobs away from you. Blacks have the highest unemployment rate of all and the gap has actually increased between blacks and whiles since Obama took office.  

Obama absolutely hates Christians & Jews. This so called war on women is actually a war on Christianity. Obama calls himself a Christian but takes “Separation of Church & State” to mean “Total Separation of Christian Churches From State”. To hell with Catholics, to hell with Jews, to hell with Protestants, but according to Obama we must not offend the Muslims or the Islamic religion. It might cause bad relations between our nations. I thing, 9/11, burning of American flags and bibles, the killing of innocent Christians and a host of other terrorist attacks on non-Muslims already did that.  

Obama HATES the Constitution. On multiple occasions before he took office, he has stated the constitution gets in the way of government. “Hey Obama, that’s what it is supposed to do”. Since taking office, he has circumvented it, ignored it, insulted it and dismissed it. The once self proclaimed constitutional scholar gets infuriated when anyone mentions that he, his ideology and the office he holds is not more powerful than the laws of this land of the constitution that this country is founded on.

The only things that put a sparkle in his eyes is power, money, power, socialism, power, communism, power, obedience from others, power, expanding the Muslim faith, power, marginalizing Christianity and the constitution and last but not least, power. Look at his eyes when he talks about the power of the office of president and his kids. His eyes don’t light up nearly as much when he talks about his kids.
