30 Responses to Obama Won’t Call You In the Morning

  • I’ll repeat what I wrote in the previous post:

    This is what the desperate throes of a losing campaign looks like.

    When you have to make such base appeals (pun intended) this late in the game just to get a modicum of the turnout from your true believers that you got 4 years ago, you’re in BIG trouble. His opponent is out there making a play for the middle by talking about the economy and jobs, while Obama has spent the entire campaign talking about sex. (After where Obama has placed his focus throughout his presidency and during this campaign, I don’t EVER again want to hear how conservatives are obsessed with “bedroom issues”.)

  • I was alerted to this video by Dana Perino of The Five, watched it and shared it, seems almost everyone is picking it up on facebook, especially Catholic and pro-life pages.
    As I mentioned when I shared it, it makes him sound like a male prost – to have him be a women’s (or maybe even fellow’s) first time be with him for the price of a vote. These ads are getting lower and sleeezer as we get closer to election day.

  • Every thing about the Democrats is just vile.

  • Is the Obama ad a knockoff of this Putin ad?
    Any Russophones?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Noo0lzJILaM

    Even w/o understanding the dialog I must say the Putin ad looks cleverer.

  • My feelings are split between amusement at the Obama campaign falling apart so abysmally and thoroughly that it sponsors an ad like this, and sadness that a President of the United States’s campaign is sponsoring an ad like this.

  • Ace’s reaction is particularly on point.

    It underlines the essential triviality of Obama and his Government Client & Upper Upper Class White Voter agenda. There is nothing to his campaign except very small social-progressive appeals to people who are simply not affected by the economy, whether they are too poor to notice a bad economy, immunized from the economy by being a government worker, or so rich they have nothing at all to fear from a bad economy.

  • Our commentator, the 25ish Lena Dunham, is guilty of farting out the HBO miniseries “Girls” which showed that young college graduates in Manhattan are fully ‘broken in’ and thus can handle anything that comes along. This is accepted as true even if they can’t handle it.

    “Girls” is an alleged comedy that makes a virgin an object of universal ridicule. We also learn that an intercontinental slut is just as likely as anybody to catch a rich Manhattan executive type. There is more, but I’ll stop there — who cares what a 25ish farter farts out into the culture?

    In case you care, NBC’s Brian Williams’ daughter demeans herself in this trash.

  • Wipe your lip, honey. You missed a bit of spucatum tauri.

  • What Siobhan said, “Every thing about the Democrats is just vile.”

  • The “first time” for many young voters was obviously a mistake. But, we can turn this around. The Lena Dunham apple didn’t fall far from the tree. Her father’s vulgar and disgusting “art” is crude and demeaning to woman. I don’t think Lilly would ever find her self within 100 miles of the Dunhams.

  • Exhibit “A” why no one under 30 should be allowed to vote.

    I tremble to think that she is the future of America (and the world). God help us.

    The sheer infantility of the ad is astounding. Hopefully, most of her colleagues will grow up.

  • Degrading! Despicable. Downright dungbama!
    Desperation.
    Dunces.
    Damn
    sad
    that
    this is
    thought
    to be worthy enough
    to air on public airwaves.

  • The lady in the Putin video is much, much more fetching.

  • Thought the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal degenerated innocent youth, but four years of this administration has obliterated any development of virtue for them.

  • If you did not realize our country has among its female population a bred of sexoholics so possessed of distain for virtue and motherhood willing to reduce their gender to the mere lusts of fornication when they openly said during the Clinton saga they would be glad to duplicate Monica’s performance anytime for Bill just to thank him for supporting abortion, you surely have to know it now. And this proves Obama and the liberal democrats are trying to increase their numbers.

  • I am ashamed to be in this woman’s age group. 2008 was also my first presidential election. I voted for Obama in ’08, but after knowing what I know now (I was raised in a non/anti-religious home and only began learning about Catholicism in 2010), I will not be voting for any Democrats any time soon. What was once a great party is now an anti-life, anti-religious freedom, anti-academic freedom party. Honestly, the Democratic party is so radically different from what it used to be, I think it should be renamed to the New Democratic Party or something else to avoid confusing people who have been supporting the Democratic Party for decades. I support Romney/Ryan this election. Although my state, CA, is a “blue state” that always votes either Democrat or celebrity (Reagan, Schwarzenegger), I will be voting Republican this election. Very sad that the most popular “news” source among young Americans is Jon Stewart; a comedian and a very liberal Democrat who distorts facts against the Republican party. His show is full of red herrings, non-sequiturs, and straw man attacks. Critical thinking is lost on many Americans.

  • Just watched the Putin video – change the women and put it in English and it seems to be the same minus the crystal ball. The video is a good parrallel to the posted saying vote with your body parts. it will be a sad day if he gets back in.

  • “What was once a great party is now an anti-life, anti-religious freedom, anti-academic freedom party”

    Bravo Stephanie!

  • Well it is his most honest add. Voting for obama is like getting scr*w*d.

  • I am not a particular party. I vote for the lessor of 2 evils. Obama is evil.
    First of all he did not bail out the auto industry like he leads the public to believe. Romney did not say let the auto industry fall. In Romneys speeches he keeps explaining how he would have handled it yet Obama keeps lying about it. I work with dealerships across 12 states (General Mgrs, Service Directors, Parts Directors, Owners etc) & alot of dealerships are still closing especially the way GM is handling their GM/Chevrolet Dealerships. They will tell you Obama did nothing to help. Obama has the highest position in the states and he gets up there and lies, and calls Romney names. What type of dad,husband,friend, and president does he look like? A loser someone who is desperate. He has played the race card and has so many with big money supporting and covering up his lies, and mistakes. They will do anything for him to win, because if he gets caught they all go down with him. Ask yourself why would he fight showing his birth certificate among other important documents? What about the Libya coverup? Everything he does wrong he tries to lie & cheat his way out. This is not a hero to look to for our young people. Do not vote him in or you will have guilt in your heart when the country completly falls apart.

  • Stephanie:

    I also live in CA and as such don’t really have a good impression of how Democrats think in middle America — I generally get the impression that the Democratic rank-and-file are more conservative than the party leadership, although perhaps this has changed since the ’80s. If Obama wins Ohio for instance, will it be because of younger, more liberal voters, or older working-class Democrats who don’t share the national party’s cultural liberalism? if it’s the latter that will be especially unfortunate.

    about the ad, more than the faux-edginess and overall insult to my intelligence, what was most annoying was the reference to “healthcare, ESPECIALLY birth control.” This is where the blog quoted above was especially right: it’s targeted toward affluent Democratic voters who are fine on their healthcare, but see having to budget extra for birth control if they work for a Catholic institution as a Terrible Oppression. it’s simultaneously unsurprising and bizarre that it has become the focus of Obama’s defense of his health plan. I pointed this out while talking to my father, a Democrat, and he found it equally weird.

  • PM:

    this is a tangent but that is a big reason why i don’t like the mainstream conservative revisionism (not by all mind) that Clinton wasn’t that bad because of the booming economy. Regardless of whether he did anything that helped that along (and I incline toward the view that it was mostly independent, though I realize there were arguments that deficit reduction prevented the government from borrowing as much money that could’ve gone toward private investment,) the man is still a punchline. The whole “everybody does it,” “Europe’s laughing at us” or “privacy!” arguments offered in defense were and will always be idiotic.

  • one last thing, there was something today about how Reagan made a double entendre of this nature when campaigning for (future Reagan Democrat) votes in a working-class New Jersey bar in ’80, talking about how he used to be a Democrat and voting GOP “hurts at first but then it feels just great.”

    I’m sure there’s been a bunch of Hypocritically Hypocritical online charges from lefties already, but if people can’t tell the difference between a one-off crack and the extended weirdness of this as a part of the overall Obama campaign strategy, I dunno what to tell ’em

  • JDP-
    A New Jersy bar vs. TV ad.
    Not exactly the same venue.

  • ….in agreement with you. The level of decorum has sunk so low since Barry played chief.
    Hope & pray its a one term “stand.”

  • “if people can’t tell the difference between a one-off crack and the extended weirdness of this as a part of the overall Obama campaign strategy, I dunno what to tell ‘em.”

    I had never heard about the Reagan remark before, or that it was ever an issue. That said, I agree with JDP, there’s a big difference between saying it in a BAR where the audience are, presumably, all mature adults with a certain level of tolerance for bawdy humor vs. placing it in a nationally broadcast political advertisement that can be seen by anyone. Also, the Obama campaign has had a lot of other “extended weirdness” moments, going all the way back to the “Obama Girl” videos in 2008.

  • Here’s a hilarious parody of the “first time” video by comedian Steven Crowder:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSxDE1QCHA4&feature=plcp

    “I was a girl, and now I was a woman — a woman who can stay on my parents’ insurance until 26, burden countless generations to come with my debt and not even have to pay for my own birth control.”

  • i doubt it was ever an issue at the time. It’s mostly that libs are obsessed with pointing out supposed hypocrisy (the worst sin ever clearly,) even if they have to really reach to try and make that connection.

    if I had to guess I’d say they realize the difference, but can’t pass up an attempted cheapshot against supposed Republican puritanism

  • What’s especially bizarre about this video is that Lena Dunham has made a directorial career of portraying herself as the last person to approach for relationship advice of any kind.

    What’s next, Woody Allen or Roman Polanski informing us about which candidate to rely on when it comes to appropriate child care?

Obama Forward!

Sunday, September 30, AD 2012

For only $25.00 you too can have from the official Obama campaign store a portrait of Fearless Leader with his campaign slogan Forward!   Sheesh!  If the Obama campaign must steal  a Nazi slogan, the least they could do is come up with an updated version of the old Hitler Jugend Vorwarts! Vorwarts!

6 Responses to Obama Forward!

  • Likely Das Obama stole it from Chairman Mao.

    “Most characteristic of this preaching [of the Great Leap Forward] was its utopianism, the promise of a bright future just in the offing, “three years of suffering leading to a thousand years of happiness.” — Franz Schurmann writing in Ideology and Organization in Communist China

    The parallels don’t end with “Vorwart!”, N.B., “three years of suffering leading to a thousand years of happiness.”

    Reality: three years and nine months of misery leading to far more misery.

  • Oh my goodness, coming from a country dealing with socialism propaganda, that poster really freaks me out. May Our Lady help us.

  • The eagle, the creature of St. John the Evangelist and the symbol for the swiftness of Divine Justice flies over the youth core in Hitler’s film. The blood of innocence flows in the O of “forward”. The red ink of debt to fund vice and murder flows in the O of “forward”. Into the red ink of debt and the blood of innocence, the world, led by Obama, sinks into the abyss of the O of forward as Donald McClarey says. The blind leading the blind, both fall into the pit. Obama is not sustained by virtue, nor by angelic love for God, nor by moral compassion, nor by innocence, nor by truth, nor by God. God is removed from our culture. Obama commands the forward removal of God, into the Red Sea of debt and innocent blood.

  • Unfortunately, both Der Fuehrer and Derbama stole the slogan from Wisconsin, my home state. Rumor has it there are petitions floating to rescind the Badger State’s. But that would be only to cave. We won’t.

  • FORWARD TO WISCONSIN needs to be flaunted

  • 1st John 2:18-19

    18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.

    Many Antichrists: Robespierre, Napolean, Calles, Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Obama, etc. Nebuchdnezzer was made to eat grass on all fours like an ox for arrogance such as this. It’s all in Daniel chapter 4.

Charlie Cook: Hard Election For Obama to Win

Tuesday, June 26, AD 2012

One of the political experts I pay close attention to is Charlie Cook.  His personal politics lean Democrat, but when it comes to predicting elections and reading political tea leaves, he has one of the best records among political mavens.  I therefore assume that alarm bells were going off all over the Obama campaign when they read Cook’s column today in The National Journal:

We are past the point where Obama can win a referendum election, regardless of whether it is on him or the economy. The success of his campaign is contingent upon two things. First, when focusing on the narrow sliver of undecided voters, between 6 and 8 percent of the electorate, the Obama team must make its candidate the lesser of two evils. It has to make the prospect of a Mitt Romney presidency so unpalatable that about half of those undecided voters will begrudgingly vote for reelection. Polling focusing on the undecided voters reveals they are a deeply pessimistic and angry segment of the electorate and don’t particularly like either candidate (fitting, because they don’t tend to like politicians). But they show signs of being more conservative than not. One unpublished analysis gives Republicans a 10-point advantage on the generic congressional ballot test among those undecided about the presidential race. Close analysis of the numbers shows that Obama might have an edge with between a third and a quarter of the currently undecided bloc. That’s cutting things awfully close.

The second key is turnout. African-Americans look solid for Obama and very likely to vote in high numbers, but young and Latino voters’ turnout appears problematic. Obama’s recent announcement of a newly articulated Dream Act-light policy could help, but it is too soon to see any data showing measurable change. It is what many Latino voters wanted to see, though Obama did it less than five months before the election when it could have been done three years ago. After deportations had reached levels higher than those under George W. Bush, it could take a lot to drive up Latino turnout.

This election is hardly over: The totally unexpected could happen that changes everything. Unless the Obama team can discredit Romney, though, convincing voters that he is a ruthless, uncaring corporate buccaneer, this will be a hard election to win.

  • Lord Jesus Christ, may Obama be utterly defeated on November 6th and may Romney prove that he has the right to govern. Amen!

    I cannot begin to express my hope for an Obama defeat.

  • When Obama is king, we, the people will not have to vote.

  • It will be a blowout, crushing loss for Obama. It won’t be a 1984-style route, but very much akin to 1980.

  • I just hope & pray that Obama gets defeated because it’s scary to think what will happen to this country if he continues to be our president.

  • If I were the Devil, I would vote for Obama. If Obama won my work would be done. I would retire to Pandemonium.

    Hope, pray and work for the the good. Prepare for the worst: Obama gets four more years to finish us off.

  • Seems it is hard for him to win by convincing people he is the best and piling up more votes than Romney.
    What else can he try? October surprise? The month of June, already replete with bowing and scraping before his various constituencies, is nearly over. But I think more gays and Hispanics are becoming increasingly skeptical.

    Of course he has not really tried an appeal to the older voters yet.

  • As long as Obama has the MSM on his side, he’s in the driver’s seat. His anti-rich, anti-white, anti-religious message is gaining traction in secular America and in the weeks leading up to the election all we will hear will be how he killed Osama, “created millions of jobs,” and how dangerous it will be to “turn back the clock” and hand the reins to a rich, greedy politician who exported jobs overseas and is “out of touch.” Somewhere along the way there will be a few Romney “gotcha” moments and the MSM will pounce. Obama will squeeze out a close win.

  • Baloney Joe, utter baloney. You exaggerate the power of the fading Mainstream Media to god-like proportions and you forget the first rule in American presidential politics: It is always about the economy unless an issue of the magnitude of the Civil War or World War II dominates. No amount of media malarkey can put a smiley face on this pig of an economy for the majority of the voters. Romney with 295-310 electoral votes, with an outside chance of going as high as 347.

  • It is good to see that Mr. Green has gone from “Obama blowout” to “Obama close squeeze.”

    Good trend – let’s keep it up.

  • Only chance Romney has is a big white guy turnout. Obama has the queers, Jews, Latinos, women and blacks solidly locked up. Older white conservatives are an ever-shrinking voting bloc. It’s simple math.

  • Don, perhaps you’d like to place a small wager. Like a year’s subscription to our favorite magazine. Your call.

  • P.S. That would be one bet I would be happy to lose.

  • Don, perhaps you’d like to place a small wager.

    Fine Joe. If I win you will write a guest post for TAC praising Lincoln. If you win I will write a post attacking Lincoln.

  • “Obama has the queers, Jews, Latinos, women and blacks solidly locked up.”

    Identity politics, the last refuge of a politician who presides over a lousy economy. Obama got elected in 2008 because the economy was in meltdown and the voters blamed the GOP. He will lose this year because the economy is still wretched and he is the guy in charge.

  • Don, can I praise with faint damns? : )

  • I think Obama got elected for 3 main reasons: 1) white guilt 2) a weak opponent 3) MSM support.

  • I might not worry so much about some of the demographics you mentioned, Joe. Jews are 2.1% of population, and only 64% support Obama, 10% less than last time around. Less than 2% of Americans self identify as homosexual, so they’re not a great demographic to rely on, and the GOP still managed to get a fifth of them in the midterm. While there is a gender gap, MARRIED women tend to be a pretty Republican demographic. Think about it; if women were really a solid liberal block, that means that the half of the country with more registered voters is solidly liberal, and therefore there shouldn’t be a single Republican in any office anywhere – but there is.
    Conservative white people might not sound cool, but conservative is America’s largest ideological group, and white the largest race.

  • It is my unhumble opinion that Obama got elected because the people fear the retribution of God for abortion, for the removal of Jesus Christ and FREEDOM of religion from the public square. Obama’s arrogance posed as a strength, a shield as it were, from the vengeance God will take upon the guilty. Obama, as chief executive, will indeed bear the brunt of God’s vengeance, for Obama has not humbled himself before God or the TRUTH. MSM and Obama’s cohorts will be there right next to him when the hand of God strikes, sooner than later, praise the LORD.

  • Its a sad commentary on the state of US politics and its demographic shadow, that a man with absolutely no ability except mouthing platitudes continues to be a credible incumbent. The truth may be unpalatable but it has to be faced: the US of old is not going come back unless the whites take stock and vote according to their interests both present and historical.

  • Obama has the queers,

    There’s no need for name-calling here. Certainly Obama will garner a majority of the homosexual vote – you can just say that.

  • Paul, point taken. Perjorative now, but widely used when I was growing up. Have to remain PC of course.

  • “…a guest post for TAC praising Lincoln. “

    Low blow.

  • I am not clear on what you said here in your first sentence Mary. I do think the people are beginning to have a little more fear of the Lord. And we have to keep remembering that His is the most powerful constituency! Yes praise the Lord
    (and pass the ammunition?) joke joke… I don’t mean to foment anything…

    You speak of God’s retribution Mary … I am wondering about the quickness of God’s smackdown after the building of the druid pagan house of worship at the Air Force Academy in Colorado

  • Obama has the queers…

    That’s, what, three votes (39 if you include former members)? Not much to get worked up about, methinks. 😉

  • Anzlyne: “I am not clear on what you said here in your first sentence Mary. ” The people who voted for Obama tried to hide behind him from the vengeance of God. Obama is a hot air filled shirt with absolutely no power to rule over the nation without the sovereign authority of God. Yes, Anzlyne, It may become “praise the Lord and pass the ammunitiion” and it is no “joke, joke”. After writing 923 Executive Orders imposing martial law upon the citizenry, Obama let the military tanks roll into the streets of a quiet town to impress every voter of his power.

  • yes I get it “Obama’s arrogance posed as a strength, a shield” You are prob right– and people don’t see past the pose. Yet.

    He does have lots of feisty people trying to help him with this election.
    I wish the woman named Julia Sweeney who is a “cultural Catholic” on TV ads would get a little fear of the Lord, she could do a lot of good if she was on the side of Good.

    Maybe the armored vehicles in the streets in Missouri will make the light dawn for people- if they can admit they need to change their minds. I wish some cultural leaders would publicly do that.

  • The objective factors of 2012 indicate a crushing loss for Obama:

    1. The economy is in lousy shape and getting worse.
    2. Obama has not governed remotely as he ran.
    3. The Democrats got crushed in 2010 – that wasn’t just a little, mid-term loss there boys and girls: it was a defeat of epic proportions. 7 Senate seats, 63 House seats, innumerable State legislative seats. Has anything happened since that drubbing to make people go, “hey, those darn Democrats are just great!”?
    4. Over the past couple years upwards of a million people took the time to switch their voter registration from Democrat to Independent or Republican. The number of registered GOPers in the US has grown (slightly) while the number of registered Democrats has dropped (like a rock in some places).
    5. Polling has been showing an increasing gap between the number of GOPers polled and the number who show up to vote: the Wisconsin recall and Indiana Primary are prime examples of this. Lugar was supposed to lose by a couple points: he lost by 21. A major surge in grassroots, conservative voters is showing up.
    6. A bunch of senior, elected Democrats are skipping the Convention. They don’t want to be seen in the same region of the country with Obama – not even in the same region he’ll be in the next day or two.
    7. While Obama continues to pull in huge bucks, he’s not pulling in nearly as much as expected, he’s burning through it faster than he’s taking it in and, at the minimum, the GOP which we thought would be outspent two to one will match the Democrats in 2012.
    8. Political rumor-mongering has it that Democrats are already engaged in Congressional “triage” where they are deciding which incumbents are already lost and thus where to spend money to save seats. In other words they are playing Congressional defense – just trying to hold on to as many House and Senate seats as they can rather than trying to take any away from the GOP.
    9. The Democrats are already in a “thread the needle” campaign mode…looking at the electoral map to see where they can dig up 270 electoral votes. Romney is expanding the field to traditionally Democrat States such as Pennsylvania and Michigan.
    10. It is the end of June and Obama is still in massive pander mode to his core supporters – he’s desperately trying to lock down single women, Latinos, homosexuals and urban professionals.

    The bottom line is that the Obama campaign strategy now is to try to so divide Americans in to mutually hating camps that he can eke out a narrow win as Independents stay home in disgust and the traditionally larger number of core Democrats slightly outweigh the core GOPers on November 6th. This is the campaign of a man who is facing crushing defeat, knows it, and is just working desperately to salvage his political career. It won’t work – even if Obama does manage to disgust everyone with politics, my view is that there are more GOPers these days than Democrats…so a fight between the bases, as it were, still has Romney winning.

    Yes, it is still a long way before November 6th. Yes, all of us committed to defeating Obama must work like heck to get it done. Yes, anything can happen. But the reality of 2012 is that it is a hideous year for Democrats – if they win, it will be by the narrowest of margins, because we dropped the ball and because they lucked out amazingly.

  • I suspect Obama might not step down when defeated. He’s already hired a ton of attorneys to contest the election results.

Christmas is the Time To Nag Your Relatives to Vote for Obama!

Wednesday, December 21, AD 2011

Hattip to Verum Serum.  Sheesh, how more cult like can they get?  Nagging your relatives about politics at family get-togethers, especially over Christmas, strikes me as a good way to drive a stake through family good feeling.  One of the great things about family is that you are thrown in with people you do not choose.  If you like them great, but you tolerate and associate with them even if you do not because they are blood and marriage relatives.  Families help teach us how to get along with people we might not have chosen to associate with, but for the accident of being related.  This mandates tolerance for differences with relatives who interact with us because we are family.  Using a family relationship as an opportunity for political propaganda strikes me as completely wrong-headed, and having a campaign adopt this as an official tactic of the campaign leaves a very bad taste in my mouth.

  • The folks that would listen to an ad that told them to drag politics into the holidays already were dragging politics into every family get-together they could, going off of my more obnoxious cousins.

    The delicate dance to figure out what political topics are safe is part of the fun of family!

  • …leaves a bad taste in my mouth…

    More than usual with this sick bunch?

  • Whoever came up with this idea must be the same person who decided that holiday family gatherings are a great opportunity to confront overweight relatives with the health risks of obesity and the need for proper diet and exercise! Yes, I actually heard some self-appointed “expert” say this in a story on NPR last night.

    What next — using Valentine’s Day or your wedding anniversary as an opportunity to change your spouse’s vote?

  • Gosh, this sounds like it is a “Do or Die” desperate strategy by the Obama Campaign Bunch to get him re-elected by whatever means – fair or foul .

  • My wife’s family double secret disowned us for being prolife & voting republican. I won’t have that problem.

  • I dunno. I’d like to hear their reasons why we should allow that good-for-nothing’ useless scoundrel four more years to finish us off.

  • I don’t know about relatives but has happened to me at two different jobs for years. The Dem shill comes in with the latest NPR or Dem talking points and starts his evangelizing.

  • Since most of my family is Catholic (a few in-laws are not or are lapsed) this is not likely to happen. Political discussion usually centers around which GOP candidate is least offensive.

  • Bleh. The tone of that video is so condescending. “Obviously our parents are stupid and old, so I need to educate them.” I wonder how many of those relatives who are coming around are just telling their pompous children what they want to hear so they will shut up.

  • I learned never to argue with infallible ignorance.

  • When the big O got elected I had a dream he had all those who disagreed with him sent to concentration camps ala Wild_in_the_Streets.

  • It’s unbelivable. Remember Al Gore telling kids not to listen to their parents because they were old and all that? This sounds the same. Telling young people to try to change their elders minds is not only unrespectful but tells me that since you are old you do not know what your doing. Mr Obama, We are too wise to be brainwashed!!!

  • We have an ancient saying in our Native Language and Culture which can be loosely translated this way : “Young people THINK they are more intelligent than their elders. The Elders KNOW the young people are not intelligent and lack the wisdom gained over the years”. I believe American parents need to remind their offspring of this Wisdom of our Forefathers.

  • Another beautiful Parable says: “An old man sitting on his stool by the door of his hut sees further than his young son sitting on top of the tallest tree”
