A Time to Fight, or a Time to Take It?

January 27, 2009

We are at a dangerous time in the history of the world. Things are taking place that are putting our rights in jeopardy. We are starting to see the beginning of a Nanny State. This is a time in which we are being asked to allow the government to grow, and in that process allow them to take our rights. We are being told that the government will protect and nurture us for this.

Now as times are getting harder to endure, it becomes tempting to just say, here allow me to live at a comfortable and I will ask no questions. We saw this after 09-11-2001, when the country was willing to give up rights for a false promises of security. It was promised during the 2008 primaries, and the public has taken the bait. Many people think that the government will pay for their house, keep gas in their cars, and make them well when the become sick. These people are willing to pay the ultimate price for this, the loss of their rights and freedoms.

How did we get to this point?

I feel many of the so-called younger generations feel that they are owed something, and will bite on these promises. (I am sure my parents felt the same way.) It has been done by conditioning. Since the days after WW II, we have been told that our children should have it better than we did. So when a man holds out the Golden Key in hard times and tells you, if you do this you can have the Key. If you feel it will help you and your family live comfortably, more than likely you will sign up. Some may be saying “NO”, however that is why the lottery is so popular, more so during hard times. The “Hope” of that better life.

Now we are in a situation that will not be fixed with the Stimulus Package that is being put forward. The reason being, most of the so called “Emergency Package”, will not happen for many years. Parts of the package will not take effect until 2013, and some even later.

What Was That

Before I finish let me say, “I don’t want this to be a race thing.” Now with that said, I came across, a not so widely reported statement by Obama’s Economic Adviser Robert Reich, that is a bit disturbing.


I am concerned, as I’m sure many of you are, that these jobs not simply go to high-skilled people who are already professionals or to white male construction workers. … I have nothing against white male construction workers. I’m just saying that there are a lot of other people who have needs as well. … Criteria can be set so that the money does go to others, the long term unemployed minorities, women, people who are not necessarily construction workers or high-skilled professionals.

Please watch the video below. The article continues below the video.

As I look through the parts of this stimulus package that are meant to help get people working, it seems as if it will leave a number of people on unemployment and public assistance. While moving others into those jobs we will be pushed further into a Nanny State.

Is it me, or should this package be looked at slowly and possibly be reworked. Because as it stands now, it is going to hurt more than it will help. And in more ways than one.
