I am all for freedom of speech, but I don’t understand why an American company would choose to “revere” a Marxist murderer in this way.  Steve Jobs’ Apple company has a new application – it’s the “Che Guevara – Just the Facts” eBook..  For those of you who don’t already know who Che Guevara is, or maybe have just heard the name, here’s an image that might be familiar to you:

He look familiar?

“A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”
Lenin, Russian Communist politician & revolutionary (1870 – 1924)

Like them or hate them – you have to admit that there is an effort being made to demonize the Tea Party movement as racists, gun toting thugs, and right wing militia fringe.

I have been to two rallies in Washington DC with the Tea Party and 9-12 movements. September 12, 2009 and March 20, 2010. In my personal observation of the Tea Party:

What Do Romney And Obama Have In Common?

“Romneycare” is the microcosm of Obamacare – the following is a disturbing, and factual look into the future of our new health care plan and what it means to you, despite what Congress is attempting to sell you.

What is Romneycare? In case you don’t know, former governor of Massachusetts (and a possible republican presidential candidate for 2012) Mitt Romney instituted a plan for the state of Massachusetts which would cover every man, woman and child – state government-run healthcare. Basically, Romneycare is a genetic blueprint for Obamacare.

First the basics. Romneycare promised to do just what Obamacare is promising to do: Reduce costs for insurance premiums, make health coverage affordable for all citizens, and promises that costs will be manageable on our budget (i.e. deficit neutral).

Here are some quick facts on Romneycare (per Wiki):

(Gateway Pundit explains indoctrination in schools)

Ah, the indoctrination of our youth. Thanks to PBS, teachers now have lesson plans on how to teach children that healthcare should be a right. Sigh- (Why, you ask? To adequately sell us on a plan no one read, but still voted for).

Noticeably absent from the plans are the dangers of Socialism, the bankrupting of our economy or the decapitation of Capitalism.

About a decade ago, we’d all have gotten the chills reading something like this – in fact, twenty years ago; we might have even called in the FBI to investigate a suspected Communist infiltration. McCarthy, call your office.

Does one person’s need constitute another’s obligation to provide?

Really think about that folks. Our Constitution says no, most American’s say no, (see Rasmussen today) but in effect, that’s what our government has done for years by way of taxation. In the case of Obamacare – that obligation will become an all out smorgasbord of benefits stolen from those who have, rendered unto those deemed “in need”, ala the Karl Marx principle “From each according to his means, to each according to his needs”.

Flying on Obama’s private plane; Obama, His wife and his dear friend, Oprah.
Obama looked at Oprah, chuckled and said, ‘You know, I could throw a $1,000 bill out of the window right now and make somebody very happy.
Oprah shrugged her shoulders and replied, ‘I could throw ten $100 bills out of the window and make ten people very happy.
Michelle added, ‘That being the case, I could throw one hundred $10 bills out of the window and make a hundred people very happy.

Hearing their exchange, the pilot rolled his eyes and said to his co-pilot, ‘Such big-shots back there. I could throw all of them out of the window and make 200 million people very happy.’

Another company has made public just how much money it’s going to cost them for Obamacare.

(The Wall Street Journal has the story)

Verizon’s Executive vice president for human resources Marc Reed, wrote to company employees yesterday about Obamacare. “Many of the plans that Verizon offers to employees and retirees are projected to have costs above the threshold in the legislation and will be subject to the 40 percent excise tax.”  In other words – Verizon employees had some pretty good insurance coverage – and now Obamacare is going to punish them for it.

Shocker: ‘Black’ Barbie Is Oppressed

In America, funny, Obama, Socialism on March 12, 2010 at 5:16 pm

This video from Zonation quite succinctly explains EXACTLY why we see backlash like “Black Barbie is less than White Barbie” in today’s PC society.

I found this article on ABC news last week, and just had to shake my head.

Black Barbie selling for less than White Barbie.  It’s a polarizing subject that I am sure the likes of Reverend Jackson could pontificate about for hours.  In kind, most American’s could easily step in with valid opinions for varying reasons.

In the article, the experts consulted all suggested that smart retail business was tantamount to the devaluation of black girls.  I think it’s a stretch personally, but I believe the opinions contained within the article outline the core of the real problem – that our aim is off.  Blaming WalMart, or the dolls features for social “injustice” is just a reopening of old wounds – outlining separation of black and whites – ad nauseum.

For example:

Lisa Wade, an assistant sociology professor at Occidental College in Los Angeles had this to say, “Walmart could have decided “that it’s really important that we as a company don’t send a message that we value blackness less than whiteness,”.  She went on to say,  “Walmart could have chosen to keep the dolls at equal prices in an effort not to “reproduce whatever ugly inequalities are out there.”

Reproducing ugly inequalities indeed – that’s the core of it.  That’s where our sites should be aimed – at stopping this “reproduction” at all costs.

Other key points of view from the Barbie Color controversy noted:

“Black children develop perceptions about their race very early. They are not oblivious to this. There’s still that residue. There’s still the problem, the overcoming years, decades of racial and economic subordination,” Harvard University professor William Julius Wilson

-and-

“The implication of the lowering of the price is that’s devaluing the black doll,” said Thelma Dye, the executive director of the Northside Center for Child Development.

Walmart’s position was back to those nutty capitalistic retailer ideas:

“Pricing like items differently is a part of inventory management in retailing,” WalMart spokesperson Melissa O’Brien said.

Ok, maybe they all have a point, and maybe you agree or don’t.  But the pink elephant in the room went without mention, once again.

Residue. Reproduction of ugly inequalities. I don’t believe the actions of a retailer selling black dolls at “sale” prices is harming the socioeconomic fiber of black children in the US – I submit that it’s rather black leaders, schools, and government that do this.

Black leaders spew diatribes at the black community, telling them how they have been and  are being oppressed, and being treated unfairly in all social and economic situations.  The black community are constantly reminded of their unfortunate history in the US, and not of any strides and outright changes made since the early 60’s.  Why are black people always portrayed by their own leaders as an exclusionary group, and not what they are – American citizens – PART OF the whole, not just “apart” from the whole?

Educators use black history month to drive this exclusionary mantra home. I am certainly not saying that history of the Civil Rights movement is not important – I am merely suggesting that we start calling it American History and to stop constantly pointing out the differences – constantly indoctrinating our youth that black people are different – so different that black history be separate from the rest of America’s history.  Martin Luther King wanted black and whites sitting together – it wasn’t Mr. King’s idea to constantly have a separateness – his was a message of unification.

Indeed our US Government, as a never-ending apologetic reparations program has instituted programs further carving out a separateness of race, and not a kinship of mankind, such as  Affirmative Action.  Now before you go crazy – I understand why and how programs such as these, began– but what are they telling us now?  It is like we as a nation are saying to the black youths of America that they aren’t able to qualify among the regular workforce, so we’ll give you a leg up.  What’s the message here?  Blacks aren’t as smart as other races?  That blacks can’t compete unless the bets are hedged, that they can’t compete unless the deck’s been stacked in their favor?  That giving black people a head start is the only way they can be equal with other nationalities?  Even the PC term African-American is once again carving out a separateness of station.  As if they must be hyphenated, or qualified in some way – just to make especially careful we redefine the differences over and over.  Why not just be American?

If there is any message in the “Baribies” – it’s that it’s time to “sight in” our focus so that we’re aiming at the real problem here, and not continuing on the blame of our misguided past.  We don’t need Black History month – we need a refocus on how black people are part of America’s history.  Togetherness not separatist.   We don’t need a separate section in the bookstore for black writers, or black literature – isn’t this exactly the OPPOSITE of what Dr. King wanted?  Isn’t that just more segregation?  Why not count the black authors among the white – standing side by side, and shoulder to shoulder – and not given preferential treatment, or segregated treatment, but a togetherness.  A kinship.  A sense of oneness.

We need to stop outlining our differences and concentrate on what makes us the same – let’s let Barbie be Barbie, and retailers make sense of business – and leave the residue out of it.
