Man Seeks S.S. Disability for His “Whiteness”

Man Seeks S.S. Disability for His “Whiteness”
Al Ritter 

Percy Whittington lives in Baltimore City and is employed as a hairdresser. Since the Baltimore Riots of 2015 he feels that his means of making a living has been seriously challenged. His customer base has been dropping ever since the riots and he feels he knows the reason….his “whiteness.” 

“Nothing has changed in my ability to style and cut hair,” says Mr. Whittington as he was being interviewed at his home in the Cherry Hill area of Baltimore City. “My ability to pay my bills and live in harmony within my neighborhood has been seriously diminished.” 

Mr. Whittington has been successfully employed at Laquita's Hairweave for the last 17 years, but only until recently has he questioned the reason for his declining clientele base. “I have successfully kept up with current styles and have even learned how to do cornrowing, but now that seems to mean nothing.” 

Mr. Whittington believes that his current drop in customers is due to his “physical disability,” the fact of his “whiteness.” When questioned about possibly changing careers, his reply was, “why should I change careers when the problem is the color of my skin?” 

“Some people have suggested that I move out of downtown Baltimore and get a job in the suburbs, but that would require me to start all over and build a new client basis, and that just makes no sense at my age.” Although Mr. Whittington is just 48 years old he feels he is in the twilight of his career and sees no hope in recovering his current earning capability. 

“People need to understand that being white is a real physical disability, and needs to be addressed by government. I haven’t saved much over my working career and now the government needs to help me out, after all it’s only fair. President Obama has helped so many people since he came into office and now he needs to help me though my disability. President Obama has been redefining many things in our lives and now this is just one more area he needs to work on.”

Employment for 50’s + Worker: The Dead Zone

Employment for 50’s + Worker: The Dead Zone
Al Ritter 

Politicians constantly push forward initiatives where they want the retirement age to be pushed forward. The fact that politicians misused the funds that were set aside by contributions by both the worker and their employer, seems to mean nothing to them. They robbed the piggy banks of American workers instead and funded social welfare programs that they term “entitlements.” 

Although there are 8 protected classes by federal law that an employer may NOT discriminate against (race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability, gender, and age), employers continue to do so.  

When the Congress pushes retirement ages higher, and employers continually force their HR departments to hire younger and younger employees, it creates a “dead zone.” This dead zone creates the group of casualties caused by willful discrimination as to age. 

America is filled with seniors (50-65+) who want to, or HAVE to, work. Job eliminations because of economic conditions are usually the death sentence of senior working Americans. And although the employer can’t ask your age other than to confirm they are over the age of 18, all applications for employment still have that little box for “date of birth”………..Why? 

Through affirmative action there are minority hiring requirements for employers, but it seems that color and race are the only real protected classes that get any real credence……Why? Because employers are scared to death to be sued by disgruntled non-hires or even worse have their cases taken on by the ACLU. As a result religion, national origin, disability, gender, and age get a back seat now. 

For argument sake because the retirement age has now been pushed to 66 so let’s view this group as 50-70 years old. Hires that never once missed getting a job at age 40 from any they applied for are now applying to hundreds of jobs and rarely getting one single interview. The primary reason isn’t race, color, sex, disability, or national origin…….it’s age! Although many businesses MAY make decision not to hire on the afore mentioned factors, more often than not it is age that is their #1 deciding factor. 

The lack of law enforcement on this single factor is plunging seniors into poverty. To think that a company can hold the financial future of a senior in their hands is appalling. Because once one company lets that employee go it pretty much seals the deal on any other company hiring them in the future. 

I propose that through affirmative action (if it in fact continues in America) that a company should have to show that they have a certain amount of senior hires between the ages of 50 and at least legal retirement age of 66, or whatever the age that Social Security sets in the future to prove they aren’t discriminating based on age.

Steny Hoyer (D-MD) Claims Immigration Laws Should Be Followed

Steny Hoyer (D-MD) Claims Immigration Laws Should Be Followed
Al Ritter 

Steny Hoyer, Democratic House Whip just now flips to the “legal” side of law, obviously protecting his house seat and position in the Democratic caucus. In an Interview yesterday he said that “sanctuary cities like Baltimore and San Francisco should be informing federal authorities when local law enforcement arrest felons like the illegal immigrant who allegedly shot and killed 32-year-old Kate Steinle in San Francisco last week.” 

Hoyer stopped short and refused to site what he thinks the punishment should be for cities that refuse to enforce immigration laws on criminals that should be deported, but he thinks that officials have the responsibility to report such criminals to federal authorities. 

This sudden concern of Hoyer’s is almost laughable because in the district backing up to his district, Baltimore City, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings Blake four long years ago claimed her city to be a sanctuary city, and yet not a word out of Congressman Steny Hoyer. Takoma Park which backs up to Hoyer’s district to the west has also been declared a sanctuary city, and again no word on that declaration from Congressman Hoyer! 

Most Democrats seem to believe that we should somehow give sanctuary to “undocumented aliens” and then loosely monitor them to make sure they don’t fall into the category of violent criminals. 

Sadly, hardened criminals are crossing our borders daily and automatically seek out sanctuary cities knowing that their movements and activities will not be tracked. As a result these cities are a magnet for the most violent of criminals and crime rates skyrocket in those areas. 

Democrats ignore the fact that the people who cross illegally into our country have already committed a felony by the act of crossing illegally. Federal law that is being willfully and intentionally ignored by this Administration addresses that fact in that anyone with a criminal record of a felony may NOT be allowed in this country. ICE, and Border Control are daily being told to stand down by the DHS and DOJ and not to actively deport these criminals. 

Why have borders at all if they aren’t actively being enforced?

Gettysburg Museum Rewrites History

Gettysburg Museum Rewrites History
Al Ritter 

In 2005 I made a trip to Gettysburg to revisit the Battleground that I visited as a child. The familiar building, complete with a map of the battleground that had little lights that showed each significant skirmish gave me a calming sense that the familiar stories I had heard as a child were still being taught to children that were visiting the Gettysburg Nation Museum then. I visited many of the little independent museums also and learned more of what happened on those three July days of 1863. Following a map of the battleground I drove around for the entire day taking in the landscape and understanding the progression of the battle that killed 97,000 men in just 72 hours. 

The historic building that housed the museum was just across the street from the Cemetery where most casualties are buried from the battle. In that museum were narrated films about the causations of the war. The building also included a diorama of a painting done just months after the battle in 1863. 

It was explained that the reasoning was that the North was exploiting the South for its labor force to supply them with products to manufacture goods with, and returning very little in the way of money. The North continued to force the federal influence on the South even against their threats to secede from the union if their demands weren’t met to preserve their state sovereignty as granted by the Constitution. 

Nine years later I returned to Gettysburg to take a friend whom hadn’t been since her childhood either. I was amazed to see how much the town had changed. The area was now geared much more towards tourism, and had a very commercial feel about it now. The old Museum in the historical building was now gone and new modern building was built on the edge of the battlefield. The complex is massive and includes many different parking areas for not only cars but huge amounts of busses. The federally run facility now employs 10 times the amount of employees that the 2005 site did.  

We paid our fee for museum and started with the display of items collected during the battle and from the area in general, and it wasn’t far into that display to see where this narrative had changed from my previous trip. Although I was perturbed I ventured on. Each and every turn in that display the narrative was changing to a more obvious slant of…..the entire war was fought over slavery. The pictures had progressively changed the farther you ventured into the display to the final rooms that showed nothing but slavery and oppression.  

Shocked we proceeded to the movie in the theatre before going to the Diorama. Once again the movie started and explained the logistics of the battle, but as it continued the presentation took an ominous slant towards the reasons for the war. By the time the lights came on I sat dumbfounded, knowing that the historical narrative had been changed in just 9 short years. We went to view the Diorama which was basically a viewing of the battleground and an explanation of the artists who made it. 

I couldn’t help but to look around us at all the young impressionable minds from schools in the surrounding states. I couldn’t help but to wonder when the narrative of 130 years had changed to this new rewritten version of history, and who had ordered it. Is it merely the progressive push to make the Southern States appear to be the aggressors and the North to be the saving grace of abolishing slavery? Or is this a PC way to lighten the responsibility of the North in the Civil War….aka Slavery trumps everything else.
I could go into time frames and actual actions done under Lincoln’s orders that were clear and intentional violations of the Constitution against the South. This is not the point of this article however, the point is the narrative was one thing and now it’s been changed to something else that facts don’t support. 

To me this is NO different than removing the battle flag of two regiments of the Confederate Army. It makes no sense to rewrite the history of our country ever intends to learn and change from our mistakes, to ignore those mistakes only insures we WILL make those mistakes again. 

Teaching our impressionable children the wrong narrative denies them the truth of the war. I’m certain other facilities run by our government are teaching the same myths nationwide and thus promoting lies. 

I’ll close this article with two quotes that are very poignant and relative.

“All this was inspired by the principle--which is quite true in itself--that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.”—Adolf Hitler , Mein Kampf, vol. I, ch. X[1]

"The man who has no sense of history, is like a man who has no ears or eyes" - Adolf Hitler

"The victor will never be asked if he told the truth." - Adolph Hitler

"When an opponent declares, "I will not come over to your side," I calmly say, "Your child belongs to us already... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community." - Adolph Hitler

 UPDATE: It's now been brought to light that the Museum is NOT being run by the government but by a non-profit corporation that has chosen to rewrite history according to their own view. I would highly suggest that you spend your money elsewhere, and not support this group.
