MSM: Many Small Minds

MSM – it is how some refer to the mainstream media

It is an acronym for people who seek to promote themselves at the expense of the common good. They seek to control the dialogue rather then honesty report. They are participants rather then observers

The MSM are a group of people in an age where self-interest has replaced self-sacrifice. But they will sacrifice anyone to advance their career

Although the term is intended to describe the mainstream media, it defines the alt-left, too. But as Stalin said, “Quantity has a quality all of its own”. It is like ants swarming a picnic, impossible to stop and not to be underestimated.

Imagine the movie, “Idiocracy”, but with the alt-left as the majority.

I Have A Dream

I have a dream . . . . of a land where civil rights, not civil preference, is the rule of law without favoritism shown to any group based on race, gender or culture. America a is one of nation, not of God, but of it’s people because when the day begins, and when the day is done, America is all about its people and the common good unweighted by individual desire, prejudice or desire for a certain way to benefit certain individuals or to advance a political ideology at the expense of anyone else.

To achieve such a nation of people requires negotiation, comprise and moderation, not capitulation or appeasement. It is not “my way or the highway”. This is moderation, not extremism from anyone at anytime, but it does require passion, determination and commitment and to see the trees and not the forest; to see everyone as a human being and to recognize that, “why can’t we all just get along” is not a reality because people are different either by nature or nurture. That the best we can do is understand and work with one another to minimize the extremism.

America must be a land of laws all the time, but humane in it’s goals. At the same time, “line cutters” cannot be allowed for that eliminates the predictability of laws and the stability that a nation; a union affords and chaos and anarchy occur and eliminate the common good.

America has been described as the great melting pot, not the great multi-culturism. America is one culture pursuing freedom, security, safety and prosperity and that is ALL that America is about even though others have tried to expand on the original meaning to suit the needs and desires of the few to manipulate the many.

The needs of the many do not outweigh the needs of the few, they have to balance out one another in compromise and moderation to define and achieve the common good.

Listen to the John Lennon song, “Imagine”, and think of how such a world could be achieved and you will realize that only by everyone being dead is such possible. This is a world of people, not saints and is a world of the people, by the people and for the people.

Sometimes the best deal is one that everyone hates but that all admits everyone profits equally by.

How Obama Sold Out the DREAMers & DACA

BO announcing DACA June 15, 2012 . . . .”This is not a path to citizenship. It’s not a permanent fix. This is a temporary stopgap measure that lets us focus our resources wisely while giving a degree of relief and hope to talented, driven, patriotic young people.”

 “Just six years ago, the unlikely trio of John McCain, Ted Kennedy and President Bush came together to champion this kind of reform.  And I was proud to join 23 Republicans in voting for it.  So there’s no reason that we can’t come together and get this done.”

 There was never a final vote, but BO was one of the co-sponsors of the bill. And of the bill BO said the following . . . .

 “Supports a path to citizenship similar to McCain-Kennedy and voted for the 2006 bill incorporating major aspects of the plan. Voted for the Mexican border fence. Would toughen penalties on firms that hire illegal immigrants. Calls for promoting economic development with Mexico as a way to decrease illegal immigration and, like Clinton, says family reunification should be a guiding principle in immigration policy.”

 As part of that bill was the DREAM Act provisions as pushed by President Bush who negotiated the terms with Mexico and had Kennedy and McCain frame the legislation and present it to the Senate

 Even when BO introduced DACA, he said it was a temp measure and that Congress needed to act, but BO made a promise he didn’t keep because, as usual, he dictated terms and assumed capitulation from Congress. He didn’t, and didn’t know how to, negotiate and lost the vote in Congress and never re-visited the legislation.

 And as demonstrated by Comprehensive_Immigration_Reform_Act_of_2007, BO ‘jacked an idea presented by better people then himself and had seen it fail. Legislation that the Dems failed to get behind in spite of all the high sounding rhetoric you hear now they are the minority party. If the Dems had supported reform, which the GOP would’ve gotten credit for, the legislation could’ve passed.

 Knowing that legislation to enshrine DACA would fail without border control first, from previous experience –

 “The proponents did not get even a simple majority. The message is crystal-clear. The American people want us to start with enforcement at the border and at the workplace and don’t want promises. They want action, they want results, and they want proof because they’ve heard all the promises before.”

  – and if DACA was not a path to citizenship, what the hell was BO thinking except to cause more division, more distrust and more anarchy to add to what he had already done and set civil rights back 50 years?
