Open Message to “Occupy Wall Street”

Dear Occupy Wall Street:

GROW UP!

Hi, my name is Deanna. I work hard and go to school. I’m paying a lot of money for school because I want to better myself. I work hard at my job because I believe the American Dream is earned, not given by the government. I take out student loans, and I understand why they need to be paid back. I went two years without health care and didn’t complain. I live within my means and do not blame any one else for any debt that I accrue. I am in the Tea Party. I do not get paid for that, I do not quit my job to participate. I do not call for violence or violate the law in my protest. I do not violate property rights. I know what I believe in:

God

The Sanctity Of Life

A Small Government

Low Taxes

Hard Work

I don’t expect anyone to give me things for free. I don’t think the government is my sugar daddy. I might fall in the category of “poor” but I do not blame wall street, and I know that increasing taxes on the people who create jobs in this country will NOT CREATE JOBS!

So I have some advice for you:

Go Home

Take a Shower

Go to class

Get a Job

Get off your butt

Work Hard

GROW UP AND STOP BLAMING EVERYONE ELSE FOR YOUR PROBLEMS!!!!!!

Vote 2010

Two years ago I wrote the following

So I just wanted to remind everyone that the fight for American values is not over, rather it has just begun. We can not give up hope, we must stand together stronger than ever. All that is required for evil to prosper is for good men (and women) to do nothing. So do something! Keep your voice, shares your values, stand up for what is right, no matter how hard it gets.

And you guys did NOT disappoint! Two years later and the Tea Party has blossomed, launching a new generation of conservatives into the public spotlight; Republicans will take over the House by midnight, and might take over the Senate as well! Gubernatorial races are running strong red and things are looking bright indeed for the future of our nation!

But it still isn’t over- YOU MUST GO VOTE!

Hundreds of thousands of brave men and women have died so that you could cast your ballot. So go vote, and PLEASE- vote CONSERVATIVE!!!!

Mauling Memorial Day

In 2008 I had the honor of being present at the Memorial Day service at Arlington National Cemetary, and it was one of the most heart wrenching experiences I have ever had. Surrounded by families of the fallen, watching President Bush lay a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, as TAPS played… it still brings tears to my eyes.

This year will be different- our President will not be at Arlington to honor the fallen men and women who gave their “last full measure of devotion” to their country. He will not look into the eyes of the families and friends of those who died to protect our country, to preserve our freedom. He will not listen to TAPS, or lay a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. No, Obama has decided to skip Memorial Day in order to go home to Chicago.

This is unacceptable, this is a slap in the face to the brave men and women who day after day put their lives on the line for you, for me, AND for him. And instead of honoring them properly, he is leaving D.C. to go visit friends from the dirty Chicago political machine.

The Gold Star families, who have lost their sons and daughters overseas deserve better, they deserve a President who appreciates the sacrifice that their precious children made on his behalf. They deserve to be looked in the eyes and told how much they mean to the people of this great nation.

But Obama doesn’t honor these men and women- these sons and daughters, moms and dads, brothers and sisters, these loved ones that laid down their lives. Instead of honoring them, he goes around APOLOGIZING for them. Instead of paying homage to these amazing men and women, he makes their sacrifices and courage out to be “arrogance” and “empire building.”

As a grand-daughter of a Marine that barely survived the battle of the Chosin Reservoir, and as a sister of an Airman fighting in the Middle East right now, it’s the final straw. I never liked him, but now I officially DESPISE him.

 His blatant disrespect for our Armed Forces and the valiant men and women who DIE every day so that you and I can be free, takes away any respect due to him as President. I will never again honor him with that title, he doesn’t deserve it, he is a traitor to our brave men and women. From now on he will be Mr. Obama to me.

 And Mr. Obama- I can’t wait till 2012 when I can vote for someone who actually DESERVES the title of the President of The United States!

Have you Forgotten?

On September 11, 2001, President Bush offered these words:
“Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes or in their offices: secretaries, business men and women, military and federal workers, moms and dads, friends and neighbors. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror. The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filed us with disbelief, terrible sadness, and a quiet, unyielding anger. “
 
It was with this quiet and unyielding anger that Congress approved “The War on Terror”. Seven years later, and all I hear is people complaining and protesting this war. What happened to our anger? What happened to wanting justice for the men and women who didn’t know that September 11 would be their last? People decry the loss of American soldiers, yet they seek to render the cause they died for pointless; they want us to give up.
 
President Bush ended his speech with this, “This is a day when all Americans from every walk of life unite in our resolve for justice and peace. America has stood down enemies before, and we will do so now. None of us will ever forget this day, yet we go forward to defend freedom, and all that is good and just in our world.”
 
I look at our country today asking, have you forgotten? …I haven’t. God Bless America

Dear Mr. Obama,

Today I watched the most powerful and convincing thing I have ever seen in regards to this election. It is from a veteran of the Iraq War… please watch the video!!!!

Dear Mr. Obama, having spent 12 months in the Iraq theater, I can promise you, this was not a mistake. I witnessed firsthand the many sacrifices made by the people of Iraq. Those sacrifices were not mistakes. Iraqi people are just like us. They want a chance to live in a secure world, free from tyranny, free from terrorism, free to prosper, free to raise their children and pass on a future. Are they better off today than they were in 2002? You bet. I’ve seen many men sacrifice their lives for the Iraqi people. They died for a purpose, not a mistake. They died giving hope, they died promoting freedom. Do you rescue a fireman just as he’s about to save a child? When you call the Iraqi war a mistake, you disrespect the service and the sacrifice of everyone who has died promoting freedom. Freedom carries with it a price. Because you do not understand, nor appreciate these principles, sir, I am supporting John McCain for president. He, too, made a huge sacrifice promoting freedom, because he understands the fundamental truth, freedom is always worth the price.

Tired of the “Race Card”

I am so sick of being called a racist because I’m not blithely following the Hollywood parade to elect Barrack Obama. Just because I’m white means the only possible reason I can have for not voting Obama is because he is black? What about the fact that is is Pro- Abortion, or wants to universalize health care? Am I supposed to ignore the fact that he wants to “spread the wealth around”, and raise taxes while our economy is so troubled, because he is black? Am I supposed to forget that he wants to weaken our military during dangerous times for our country, and instead of defending us, go to the very leaders that hate us soo much, and have a chat? Is being a black person a free ticket to the Oval Office, or am I supposed to vote for someone based on how well they represent me and my personal and political beliefs?

Because Obama is black he has gotten handled with kid gloves (the only time Ican remember agreeing with Hillary Clinton), his past associations with people like Tony Rezko, Bill Ayers, and others of the corrupt Chicago political scene, have been ignored by the media in an effort to promote a man with no qualifications for the office of President other than the color of his skin.

People, especially those who are a minority, forget that racism goes both ways. If I am a racist for not voting for Obama because he is black, they they are racists for voting Obama because he is black too! Isn’t that the whole message of Dr. King’s “I Have A Dream” speech? That one day men would be judged solely on the content of their character, with complete disregard to the color of their skin.

I have a theory, that racism and sexism are basically the same things- both of them hinge on judgements based on physical attributes that a person is born with, and ascribe certain stereotypes to those who have those attributes. For blacks, it is common to have them depicted as ignorant, thuggish, and violent. For women, it is normally that we are stupid, only here for the pleasure of men, and incapable of doing anything on our own. History has shown the similarities of the Civil Rights Movement and Women’s Suffrage- in fact, most people do not realize that black men got the right to vote and own land before white women did. Women in that age and time were just as much property of their husbands as slaves were.

So expounding on this theory, that racism and sexism are one in the same, and that if the only reason to not vote Obama is his race, then it must follow that the only reason for not voting for Hillary Clinton must be the fact that she is a woman. Obviously, given the fact that I am a woman and consider myself a feminist- I am not sexist in my decision not to vote for Hillary. On the same note though, I am not voting for the McCain/ Palin ticket because Palin is a woman either. It is great that she is a woman to be sure, but its not for that reason that I plan on voting for her and John McCain- its because she (they) stand for everything I believe in. They are Pro-Life, Pro-Family, they are fiscal conservatives, devoted to reforming both parties, and more concerned with what is beast for the people of this great nation, than popularity and praise.

It is preposterous for anyone to claim that everyone should vote for Obama because he is black, and even more preposterous to assume that if he was white with the same positions and beliefs he would have overwhelming support. Who are these accusers to tell me that race is more important when voting than the issues? Why should I be called a racist for not agreeing with Obama on ANY issue? I believe that it is just as racist to vote for someone because of their color, as it is not NOT vote for someone because of their color. If my only reason to not vote for Obama is his race, then theirs is his race as well- therefore, if you call me a racist… you are calling yourself a racist as well my friend.

 

Is this what not being a racist means?

Back Again

Okay, so I’m giving it a second try with the whole blog thing. I think its a good idea to get my ideas out there, even if right now no one really knows who I am. Besides I’ll have alot to write about in a few weeks, when I attend the Republican National Convention as an Alternate Delegate for Louisiana! I’m really excited about it, and can’t wait to leave for Minneapolis. It’s going to be a once in a lifetime experience.
Come to think about it though- I’ve had alot of those lately. After all I was barely 18 when I ran to be a Delegate to the Republican State Convention for Louisiana, and I honestly didn’t expect to get it.. I mean I couldn’t even win a student council election in high school- the cheerleaders always beat me. But I won, and beat out some prominent local figures, I just couldn’t believe it!
I went to the State Convention, and met one of Louisiana’s Senators, David Vitter. I applied for an internship in his Washington, D.C. office, and got that too. So this summer I spent three weeks working in D.C.! It was beyond amazing, and my favorite part was giving tours of the U.S. Capitol Building. Its full of soo much history, and its crazy to imagine some of our country’s most important leaders walking the same halls!
Also while I was in D.C., I got to attend the Memorial Day Ceremony at Arlington. And let me tell you, there is nothing more stirring to the American heart than hearing Taps played in front of the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. I remember my first trip to Washington with my school junior year, and hearing it for the first time- I am also not ashamed to say that I remember crying.
My brother is in the Air Force, and has been to Iraq a few times, and is soon going back- but he tells me that if people went over there and saw what we are doing to help these people, and how thankful they are, then they would understand that we can’t leave. I definitely trust his word as a first person observer more than second hand reports in the liberal drive-by media (yes, I am a Limbaugh fan! I love it when he calls Obama “The Messiah” it kills me!!!).
Okay well, my dogs are howling to be let out- so I better go before they combust– but its good to be back!
