Deciphering the truth in a culture of false.

Texas OUR Texas…and Arizona

For the sake of all Americans crossed by this border security issue, I’m going to lend you Texas’ theme song for the moment.  Especially you Arizona as I believe you need it at this moment in history more than ever.  Along with Texans singing “Texas Our Texas” they should proclaim with great pride Arizona…OUR Arizona.

“We didn’t cross the border.  The border crossed us.”  Humph.

I’m sorry.  I just threw up in my mind a little bit.  As a native Texan, this more than chaps my hide, it makes me want to hogtie anyone who says it.  Okay, I don’t really know how to do that, but if I did, boy…

Anyway.  Of course it did, idiots…because you lost the war.  Only when Texas was about to become permanent property of the United States of America did Mexico say they would concede to the loss and recognize The Republic of Texas in all its glory.  Only when they knew the United States could make the border whatever they damn well pleased if a deal was reached did they ever concede to the truth about Texas’ victory and where the line was originally drawn.  Now Mexican and liberal Americans alike are learning a history steeped in sore loserdom which all began about a decade prior to the second Texas Revolution.  It began with a few’s desire for money and power not a clash of cultures and racism, as you‘d assume, thanks to the liberal left media.

To be kind of specific, when roughly three powerful Americans, sent out on United States business began exploring Texas, they each fell in love with her.  They independently discovered that Texas was vast and full of uncovered riches.  They also came to realize that the native Mexicans, Texians and Texas colonists of the time virtually ran themselves.  At this point, Spanish Mexico was like an estranged step-mother of sorts, mostly concerned with which plastic surgery to undergo next.  (You know, always critical of what you do, but not really involved in the whole raising you thing.)   The people who actually “governed” Texas were the same as they had always been; a group of quiet Spanish royals who originally planned out the civil matters of Texas; civil law, roads and city planning, how acreage was levied, etc.   They lived a peaceful life working with the natives (not enslaving them by the way) building up San Antonio and living a very rich life to say the least.

The Army General, a sleezeball named Edwards (purely coincidence I’m sure) and a minister from the United States Government saw that if these royals were so laid back, not willing to harm even a savage native, they were weak and insignificant.  They could easily be gotten rid of.  They also noticed something in particular about the youth of these royals.  They seemed to be bored with all the wealth and no “real power.”  Sound familiar?

Maybe their interest in large territories of Texas was purely to drum up votes for John Q. Adams’ presidency but let’s be real.  These American’s lived and died by the term manifest destiny.  It is no secret that these men had visions of being all-powerful leaders in a place that oozed power and also seemed to be just sitting there waiting for the taking.

American conquests were old news.  They began their campaign of pseudos in Texas by talking up an “Independent Texas.”  They told the young rebel royals and Texians that independence in Texas was all but theirs for the taking.  They just had to declare it and take it.  When these men were caught literally by surprise by Spanish-Mexican officials and questioned about their “speculating” they pointed their fingers at the rebel royals and said that they had started the whole thing.  The men all claimed they had nothing to do with inciting a war they would most heavily gain from.  Unfortunate for them, Spain didn’t buy it or didn’t care; one of the two, your pick.  Let’s just say they died in a bad way and it involved a donkey.

Those royal rebels specifically, who risked their lives did so not because some Americans got them all riled up and racist.  These people wanted to fight because they knew they were being taken for granted by a changing Spainish/Mexican government. Mexico was trying to win independence from Spain and reorganize the individual powers of the Church, military and judiciary system under a more “centralized” government.  Sound familiar? The Spanish royals had built Texas so far, did a damn good job of it and were so powerful in their own right it only seemed natural.  This is the first time that the Texas independence voice was allowed to be heard.  10 years later that same voice would cry “Remember the Alamo”.  The royal elders had warned them that the passionate voice inside them that wanted independence for Texas had a time and a place, but they were impatient and did not listen.  The first civilians of Texas were therefore systematically hunted down and assassinated by centralists in the Spanish/Mexican government.  Every last man, woman and child they could find, to be exact.  The Mexican government traditionally takes pride in the way they deal with “traitors”.  They’re freakin’ artists at it actually.

Racism is a tool usually used by a majority to suppress a minority and not just a natural born instinct of white people as you may think.  During Texas’ second attempt at independence, (the one that actually worked out) the minority were those of mostly Anglo heritage and the racism erupted from the majority; those with mostly Mexican heritage. When the settlers began to hear “the voice” they sent the man they knew the Mexican government had trusted thus far to speak on their behalf, Stephen F. Austin.   The once absentee government of Texas was now run by the soon-to-be Dictator of Mexico, Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna.   They were confident he would hear their discressions fairly because of their loyalty and cooperation thus far and that they would be granted the right to utilize their already working civil government.  Once again they were surprised by Mexico’s reaction.

The “President” of Mexico was a president like Hugo Chavez is the “President” of his Venezuela.   Now in 1834 Santa Anna had big plans for his new Republic of Mexico.  He counted on the Texas being held safe, American-free and built up strong by the nice, quiet, Anglo settlers, loyal to Mexico and virtually hand-picked by the Spanish Crown and Mexican Government up to this point.  They never heard a peep from the Germans or Irish, but here come those Americans from Tennessee talking LOUDLY about having their own type of freedom.  Personally, I think it was the Anglo lawyers who snuck in illegally not the Anglo miners, smugglers, trappers, jack-of all traders that really pissed the Mexican government off.  In response to this unwanted contamination of mass proportions, Mexico tried to curtail this illegal immigration of American Anglos with legislation but it just wouldn’t stop them from coming to start afresh.  Ironic isn’t it.

Having been so busy reorganizing the military, judicial system and the Church, Santa Anna did not realize how quickly so many unappealing American Anglos could spoil Mexico’s plan for constructing a well-built, well-greased white-Euro Texas.  He now had a perfect opportunity or more truthfully an excuse, to quickly stamp out any thought of rebellion and to do it with style.  Remember the donkey?   Anyhoo…

The Texans who rebelled this time were literally risking it all when they decided to declare independence from Mexico and they knew it.  Maybe they were on crack.  Maybe they were a little like the scrappy short kid that picks a fight with the big brut even though everyone knows that it’s a really bad idea.  Maybe they did get lucky, or blessed, or both- but the fact of the matter and the whole truth of the story is and was decided on that day, when a tyrant, hell bent on shoving the idea of American culture and her ideals of freedom down those who hold it dear’s throat, took the lives of over 200 men at the Alamo for pleasure and most definitely for sport.  They heard the voice that shouted this cannot be tolerated by you if you are a decent human being, no matter how small your army is!  This is what drove the Texans to win independence from Mexico and is what Sam Houston remembered as he went into battle at San Jacinto and what he warned against when we were barreling towards a civil war.  He remembered with every breath he took until his death as shall all of us who give a damn about what is right for America.  We have to account for the cost whether its men or money.

After the war, those loyal to Mexico moved back to Mexico, and those loyal to Texas stayed beyond the natural southern boundary of the Rio Grande River.  The cultures remained entwined as peacefully as it was antebellum.  However, a separating and dangerous pride was born by sentiments of the Mexican Centralist government and allowed to be passed on to following generations and so continues to deceive and mislead Mexicans loyal to the ever corrupt Mexican government.

If you look at a modern map of ethnicity in Texas you will see that the border counties are populated by those living in Texas with a lot of Spanish/Mexican heritage.  If you look at an old map of ethnicity in Texas you will see that the heritage is still densely of Mexican-Texan or Texian decent.  Even going way back to the early 1800‘s.  So it makes absolutely no sense that what the liberal left is selling as their reason for an open border is that a border is unfair.  That somehow the people with Mexican ancestry on the US side of the border suddenly become racist against the people of the same decent  on the other side of the border and so therefore moved the border too far westward just to be dicks.  Huh?  That’s pseudos.  There is nothing between the Rio Grande and the imaginary “real border” that makes Mexico any better of a place.  Trust me!

Santa Anna, the devil reincarnate, was a dictator and a war criminal who should have been hung instead of returned to Mexico.  But, sticking to their word and ruling their actions by what they had learned from living under civilized American law, the Texan leaders let the murderous dictator go.  He continued to come up with ways to strain Texas and the United States’ relations.  Because he was a dictator and had control of all arms of the government he had no reason to acknowledge or validate the treaties he had willfully signed.  Santa Anna’s position was that he had signed the documents under coercion as a prisoner, not as a surrendering general in accordance with the laws of war.  There, instead of facing the truth, he began an heir of pseudos that is alive and well today throughout Mexico and those who are ignorant in America.  So, you can just deny being General and war criminal at any time?  I did not know that.  How convenient.

In a nutshell: There once was a man who denied having ever signed any legal treaties or having ever committed the atrocities against Texans.  The Mexican government as a whole and liberal congress in America concurred against all conservative reason and human dignity.  Sound familiar?  Santa Anna murdered good, high-spirited, God fearing men at the Alamo to prove a point.  He laughed in the face of American determinism and Texians loyal to Mexico.  And the icing on the cake is that the liberal Americans in Congress have for years, sided with the pseudos of Mexico for their own political reasons.  Sound even more familiar?

Believing Mexicans have any legal, moral or hypothetical right to any portion of the United States is not only disrespectful to the men who died to win Texas’ Independence from Mexico, but it is also a slap in the face to those who hold American determinism to be one of the greatest and more permanent assets of a free country.

These Americans that are demanding stricter border laws are not racists as they themselves are in fact some part Hispanic and are proud of it.  Telling the Mexican loyalists that they are being hated on is exactly what they are conditioned to hear.  It’s not the truth and those spouting this are the only ones benefiting from it.  Obviously that isn’t the mostly white land owners in Texas, California and Arizona.  The map shows the truth.  It shows that yes, the border was drawn through populations of almost solid Texian and because of the conditions that were legally and verbally agreed upon by the Republic of Texas the wannabe Napoleon of the time, it is what it is.  This is the basic history that is accepted by educated people the world over.

Now ask those of Spanish-American, Mexican-American, Texan or Texian heritage if they think we need more border control.  Let’s ask Robert Vasquez for example.  He’s the Republican county Commissioner up in Canyon County Idaho.  That’s right, Idaho and although the invasion he is experiencing is in Idaho and not actually on the dangerous border, the argument from his perspective is just as important.  Because one in five residents in Canyon County is already of Mexican origin, he believes we, as a country are in for an “imminent invasion,” that will cost us money, cost us our safety, our health and our general wellbeing.  Committed like you read about, he has been shall we say “balls to the walls” fighting the liberal left agenda and some of the Republican’s big business’ alike who want to let as many illegals in as possible.  Vasquez says it is a fight that is partyless and completely necessary. “Some people say I’m a racist, that I’m a traitor to my heritage,” he said. “There is nothing racial about this. The only color involved is green – for money.   Wow.  It’s like déjà vu, isn’t it?

Racism is not the reason the people of Arizona and Texas want better border protection and control.  It’s because those fuckers keep shooting us and you guys up there aren’t doing anything about it! (That’s a line from The Negotiator.  I think it describes the problem quite nicely.)  Racism is a pseudos argument produced mostly by the left, aimed at devaluing the rights of mainly Anglo Americans in these border areas in order to gain the future votes of the majority Mexican-Hispanics who may or may not actually have the right to vote.  We don’t know.

It’s also to make money off of the steady stream of cheap immigrant labor, but they don’t talk about that much.   I wouldn’t either if I owned a fast food chain or many.  The whole situation is a mess, really.  A steady stream is important due to the types of jobs that they are being beckoned for.  For example, one of the major employers of immigrant labor is the meat packing plants.  The plants are bigger, running faster and more automated than ever.  This means everything must work like clockwork for the plant to remain efficient.  Any time there is a breakdown of the line due to an injury, such as loss of a limb or a body part gets stuck somewhere it costs the plant a lot of money.   Laborers who tend to not complain about a less than humane standard of work environment, a.k.a. illegal Mexican immigrants, are a necessity at that point.  And if they are highly unlikely to sue in case of injury because of questionable legal status which they are, well, that works out just perfectly too.

You know, uneducated, illiterate, non-English speaking immigrants are fine.  It’s just when they have no intention of being educated, literate or English-speaking that it becomes a problem.  The liberal left only enables that problem by defending the big industry.  It’s not un-American to say that we don’t need a steady stream of workers, even though the profit of the big automation becomes unattainable.  It’s not anti-immigrant.  It’s only Anti-immigrant and non-American when we’re talking about legitimate immigrants.  Somewhere along the line, someone forgot paying an immigrant a simple fee per body part lost was un-American and anti-immigrant.   Is it more American, or more “pro-immigrant” to be cheap rather than actually following humane business practices?  What is this, China?  It may be.   Big business can afford to make sure congress, Republican or Democrat, not only vote immigration according to what is good for big business, but can also afford to get away with inhumane business practices when they convince you that we cannot survive economically if not voted their way.  That’s pseudos.  Now I don’t believe the liberal left is into packing meat, but it sure is convenient for the liberal left agenda don‘t you think?

One last thing, I almost forgot.  Expect the pseudos on the border issue to increase as President Obama prepares to defend his throne.  President Obama is a leftist; there is no doubt about it now.  He’s left and he want’s those left votes  ASAP.  He is not middle left as he originally sold himself as and with this recent issue he is beginning to prove it.  With his recent appointment of Dr. Donald Berwick to head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, he has basically sealed the deal for many immigrants wanting to come here legally and illegally.  There is no question many come here for medical care.  Dr. Berwick says, with no qualms about it, that our wealth in America should be redistributed specifically through the Medicare system.  He says that it is our duty.

Now it is clear that the Medicaid programs that are already bleeding our medical system will continue to hemorrhage as long as this liberal administration endures. Did you know that a child born in this country under 12.8 ounces qualifies for Medicaid regardless of their parents nationality or income level?  The medical bill on a child born at this weight runs about $2 million dollars.  Want to guess how many underweight babies are born to illegal immigrants in this country each year?  Times that number by 2 million and that’s how much money you, the taxpayer has doled out this year.  I’m all for helping innocent crack babies, but this is ludicrous.  It is ludicrous to believe that most of this money is going to people who are fully aware of how to take advantage of our welfare programs and that we can continue to afford to let them.  I personally know people who have an impeccable knowledge of the ins and outs of the welfare programs available to them.  They know how to apply, what to say, what they can and cannot get away with saying on an application, but yet they do not possess the ability to read.

President Obama is racing down a dangerous road of pandering to illegal aliens, by spreading racist Pseudos about those who are trying to uphold the law and protect the citizens of this country and also now through offering free medical care so that he can mobilize a voting force of historic proportions.

Survival of the Fattest Heads

The base of the Liberal secularist philosophy seems to depict the belief that nothing cataclysmic will ever happen. Please don’t confuse this with their hissy-fit over global warming.  Global warming is not an eminent cataclysm that will end all life as we know it.  It’s a marketing theme.  These people thrive on bleeding heart stories and pessimism, but have the gall to call a conservative who speaks out passionately about America going to hell in a handbasket, over-reacting.  They truly believe if something so bad and destructive were to happen, and if it couldn’t be taken care of on the spot with money, they submit to the “we are all f-ed anyway” philosophy.  Well, that’s just a brilliant plan!

Do you know that there is a new term for people like me?  Yes, I just heard it.  There’s actually a new reality show coming out about people like me.  Shows how quick on the uptake I am.  I’m called a “Prepper.”  Yes, that’s short for preparer.  You know, as in someone who prepares for the America as we know it to collapse.  We are a closet-bound bunch, for the most part.  Because, A. The term “survivalist” has a lot of negative stereotypes attached to it these days and B. we don’t want your punk ass showing up at our farm looking for food because you were too stupid and too proud to PREPARE for yourself.  Not lazy, just too proud.  Well, if you know me, you know I’m not too proud to tell you you’re stupid.  I’m used to taking that kind of humiliating action.  So here it is.

Go ahead!  Live for the moment and don’t worry about the consequences of the future.  It’s not a stretch to think a lot of people live based on what they see in movies.  I’m guilty of this in some ideological respects but I’m talking about the sheer imitation of people’s behavior in movies.  Isn’t it funny how you never see anyone in the movies wearing a seatbelt?  I hate to call a director irresponsible for such a minor detail in the scheme of making a whole movie and all.  And maybe it’s just me but, I just want to say, don’t they know they are portraying the message over and over again that it is unnecessary to wear your seatbelt and that it also makes you look uncool.  Of course they do, because that’s what they think.  I think that would be an interesting poll question for Hollywood people.  “Do you wear your seatbelt?”   (Seriously, please wear a seatbelt even if the people in the movies don’t.)  I kid you not, I still hear the argument that if you were to get in a bad accident, you wouldn’t be able to get out in a hurry.  Like they’re Indiana Jones or something; headed for the Grand Canyon.  Uh, on a road that takes two minutes to go fifty feet maybe that’s how physics rule in Hollywood.  Come on.  Squish your boobs in the name of safety!   Let me let you in on a little secret of real physics.  If you’re in a bad accident and not wearing your seatbelt, they’re going to have to hose your ass out of the car.  This is a fitting metephore for what happens when Democrats in congress try and tweak the rules and pass something that should never have passed regardless of what precedent that sets for the future use of the Constitution’s flexibility.  Either they don’t know or don’t care.  Both are highly likely.

Don’t let anyone tell you you’re paranoid or crazy for being safe or prepared for bad things to happen.  If there is anything you learn from this book, I hope it is this.  Ever hear, “luck favors the prepared”?  The message of today towards preppers like me is more like,  “What are you?  A survivalist or something?  Good luck with that.”  Whatever happened to the romanticism of a “little survival place in the woods”?  Now if you call yourself a “survivalist” or just happen to own a gun, (a big one), you’re a gun toting’, right-wing, white-surpremist, domestic-terrorist, communalist, seclusionist, fundamentalist, f-your-sister red-neck, Bible beater.  I once invited all my gal pals to take part in the ladies’ night special at the local indoor gun range.  I immediately got a Facebook retort referring me to a guns and violence awareness website.  Tisk-tisk on me for suggesting such a horridly violent pastime!  Who knew surviving or competition was a bad thing?  It’s not like I said it was Happy Hour and then shooting with .45 calliber weapons!  Geez.  They totally don’t let you do that.

The liberal secularist philosophy says that the modern mode of thought is the only intelligent thought there is.  Let me tell you what they’re worried about surviving.  They learned about the age of reason in History and I guess were tapped out after that.  Is that when they started teaching about Henry Marx?  Anyway what you may not have paid attention to because it takes a lot of boring patience to learn, is that there have been intelligent people for thousands of years.  Not just recently with the invention of the “smart phone.”  Contrary to popular belief, smart people don’t just occur with the advancement of technology.  Still, liberal secularists think History and following the laws written by people three hundred years ago (much less a couple thousand years ago) no longer apply to the world of today.  They think they know better than those old conservative fogies from so long ago.  They believe conservativism is outdated and totally uncool.  “A waste of time.”  “Not living in reality.” Those are just a couple of things I hear most often by those living hour to hour.  “I just got a tattoo for $10!” That’s another one I hear a lot.

I think of it kind of like how a teenager thinks.  I can see how living day to day instead can be very exciting and free feeling, but it’s not freedom.  You know that “falling feels like flying, even for a little while …” Crazy Heart. I can certainly respect that philosophy some days.  I’m a wife and a mother and it’s hard having to make important decisions every single day, all day long.  Whether or not I choose to pay attention to what my kids are up to at any given moment can mean life or death for my toddlers.  There’s no pressure on earth that can beat that.

Having things taken care of for you like welfare and free healthcare is also not freedom.  It’s a death sentence.  The more you let someone take care of the needs that you are capable of doing yourself only leads you to become reliant upon and subservient to them.  In this case, once the government starts feeding you and giving you free healthcare, treating you like the zoo animal you’ve become; is that when you are really going start working harder?  Is that going to make it easier to speak out against your government and/or zookeepers?  In both instances the answer historically has been a big fat NO!  We work harder when the benefits are as great or greater than the work we put in.  No one will work harder if no extra is given for doing so.  And if the government were to control say, everything like healthcare, the financial sectors, the automobile industry, the media and education we wouldn’t have a single word to say, would we?

But here we are at the crossroads.  We have to choose a Republican to lead us through the dark.  An old addege about the blind leading the blind comes to mind, however, we can no longer let the Pseudos message rein that conservatives are just poking fun at powerful liberal people.  This complaint from the average quiet American is more than just a yapping response to the insolent left.  We are hanging by a thread.  This is about handing the decision about our entire ability to control ourselves.  Are you ready to say you are the old lady who has fallen and can’t get up?  Are you ready for the liberal Democrats to hand you your new nolife alert button to wear around your neck?  Don’t worry, it will be intimately involved with all you do, go where ever you go and it’s waterproof!  It sounds and looks like the most popular thing to do.

No! Wake up, Matilda!  Obama wants to put you in a retirement home no matter how spry you think you are!  Cut medicare?  Why do that when their just going to make the whole damn thing medicare!  Give everybody the prune plan!  So, your only 25; don’t you want to live in an old folks home and have them feed you and tell you when to eat your meds?  Why would we voluntarily do this?  Has half the country already lost their minds?  Well…


Why “Normal People” Are Crazy and You’re a Goddamn Hero

This book isn’t about being perfect.  It’s about noticing faults in our reasoning and at least trying to do something about it instead of embracing your faults like they’re a brand new bag of Cheetoes.  Upon having some of my friends read this in advance, I found that some of them didn’t make it very far through the book before they accused me of writing about them. Rest assured I didn’t write this book about anyone I currently hang out with. Of course, if you are reading this and we no longer hang out, that may be another situation.  If this book makes you feel bad about yourself please don’t let it get you down.  Let it turn into inner rage so that the next time you see someone or something that is contrary to what you know you should really be like you can act on it.  Favorite psychologists like Carl Jung called it transference, I believe.  The things that bother you most about other people, the things that really make you freak out, those are usually things that you do and can’t admit to doing; which you feel bad about.  You can’t fix yourself so you try to fix others by griping at them all the time about it.  That’s the whole point.   That’s what I want you to do.  Hey Carl Jung would probably not approve, it being counter intuitive and all, but so what.  Let’s use our psychological weaknesses for good for once.  If you’re reading this book it means you give a damn which is about 100% more than about 50% of our country. If anything, this is a tribute to all who venture to tell the truth most of the time and when it counts the most.
