Giving Peace No Chance

June 14, 2011 by  

Giving Peace No Chance

In 2009, the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the annual Nobel Peace Prize to newly minted President Barack Obama. In its press release, the Committee noted “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”

Democrats hailed the announcement as a validation of their faith in the erstwhile junior Senator from Illinois. Conservatives acknowledged the most-recent addition to the untested former community organizer’s collection of accolades as proof that the Nobel Prize — which had gained considerable tarnish after being handed to Al Gore for science fiction — was rapidly becoming as precious as those fancy breath mints they have in a dish at the Chicago-area restaurants where Oprah Winfrey dines. The conservative skepticism was confirmed after it became apparent the Norwegian Nobel Committee voted to hand the medal to Obama only nine days into his occupation of the Oval Office.

But Obama is a Nobel laureate. He successfully campaigned on his opposition to war, proudly touting his stance against further combat in Iraq and promising a swift withdrawal from that conflict. With Obama in the White House, not only were we all going to be better people, but we were going to live in a more peaceful world. Obama was demonstrating “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation.”

So, more than two years later, how’s that working out for everyone?

The War in Iraq continues, although the corporate media have developed an apparent aversion to reporting on it. The War in Afghanistan has gotten more — not less — violent, although the corporate media have evidently forgotten how to find Afghanistan on a map. The Middle East has erupted in a revolutionary frenzy which seems inspiring, until closer examination of the various conflicts reveals what may well be some sort of intramural Islamofascist squabble. Instead of delivering harmonious peace to the planet, Obama has increased U.S. military obligations from two wars to four. And he has done so at a time when the U.S. economy is wheezing like Ed Schultz chasing after a date (thanks to Obama’s ham-fisted economic stewardship).

You read that correctly. In addition to the continuing engagements in Iraq and Afghanistan, Obama has committed us to the dubiously progressing effort to oust Moammar Gadhafi from Libya. And thanks to a report which will probably cost The New York Times a spot on the plane the next time Michelle Obama takes a few dozen of her closest friends to a five-star foreign resort, it has been revealed the U.S. military is now conducting a “secret” — and growing — conflict in Yemen. “Cooperation between peoples” is fairly simple when one side of those “peoples” is pushing up palm trees.

To be honest, I have no issue with justifiable war. Terrorists, among others, need to die; and the U.S. military has consistently demonstrated it is second to none at killing terrorists. Plus, war looks much cooler on television than the corporate media excusing Representative Anthony Weiner’s contact with high school girls. Of course, I didn’t run for President of the United States on an anti-war platform, nor did I win the Nobel Peace Prize on spec. The Obama global doctrine appears to involve some sort of diplomatic board game: “All right, Mr. President, you rolled a five and a three. You have to go to…Yemen… with a cruise missile!”

I am, therefore, perplexed by the ability of rank-and-file liberals to rectify their beloved Obama’s anti-war promises with his decidedly belligerent (or scattershot) performances.

The whole of human history has been marked by war. Indeed, the number of war-free years since the first Neolithic tribesmen began scribbling depictions of dead other Neolithic tribesmen is, counting 2011, effectively zero. Ever since Thok figured out he could have the best cows and women by splitting Unk’s skull with a rock, we’ve been at it. In fact, there may well be only one thing that has defined man’s attempts to assert his own dominance over the world: lying.

    Assuming that ‘the committee’ is comprised of the same mental defectives then and now , I’d wager that ‘the committee’ is definitely on mind-destroying drugs. How the “flying #%^*” can anyone claim that Herr Obummer’s ‘extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples’ has ANY validity?
    That whiz-poor phrase sounds more like a campaign ruse (or a resume “enhancer”). PEOPLE, Herr Obummer is a con artiste. He’s a theoretician. He’s a false academic. He’s a flim flamming hoser. GET OVER IT, and DEMAND that he R E S I G N !

    • Vagabond

      SC why dont you tell us how you really feel about the lieing bastard,

      • FireMall

        @ Vagabond:

        I’ll have to tone down when asked such a loaded question.
        I’m pretty sure , from the Texas wildfire storms being ignored by Obama that Obama Is Deadly Serious about “his” Pledge to Reward “His” friends and Punish “His” enemies.
        Just because I didn’t say it ,in no way means I can’t think it. At least till Obama’s Mind Czar catches up with me. I kinda hope the “O” Czar of personal thoughts does find me. {rolling eyes}

      • http://Moreexpensive,moreunknowproblems. Lewis Munn

        Probably because the screen would ignite!

        • Harold Olsen

          Maybe he’s just too shy.

    • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Randy 131

      After listening to Obama’s lieing rhetoric, the Nobel Committee voted for Obama on what they thought and hoped he would do, but as usual the liar has done the opposite and has made the Nobel Committee members look like idiots. I think they may have learned their lesson and the next time they will wait for someone to actually do what they give their award for, instead on anticipating and hoping what they want done for their award. You must admit, you can’t be made to look more the imbecile than Obama has made those Nobel Committee members look, and they earned it.

      • Freedom

        Wait…..Is that what they did when they gave EGORE (Al Gore) the awardfor Science Fiction, or any of the dictators and other idiots. The Nobel Commitee is a bunch of NWO eletist. They will only hand these dumb awards to other NWO eletist idiots.

        • Christin

          That is pathetic if that is how they choose who wins those world awards.

          BO is undeserving… he has not gotten us out of the wars, but instead got us into MORE wars as TPTB have required him to do. He is a good puppet for his evil masters.

          And they are unwinable wars with the Military’s hands tied behind their backs in a land full of people who have fought for thousands of years and will never stop until the end of the age.

          Nobel Puke Prize… they are not a worthy Prize if they give it to unworthy people.

      • CalBob

        The Nobel has been for years awarded to the most progressive, liberal mindsets that they can find….give them credit for pegging Obama right before all the chips were on the table. Al Gore, and the Intl Climate Change people won it, Jimmy Carter won it….Liars, cheats seem to pretty well describe some of the past winners. Another was the Intl. Labour Org., Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson…all progressives….not much honor, but the money’s good.
        Wasn’t Obama going to donate his to some cause? Haven’t heard much about that.

    • FireMall

      @ SC; Considering the Nobel Liers committee bestowed the Honor to the Dishonorable “O”/ Zero before “O” did one dam thing , I’d have to say the Committee Knew what Obama was Going to do and liked “His”/ Theirs / It’s & Soros’ plan.
      If the Nobel Committee is so damed overloaded with Elitist Integrity. They would Have to resend Obama’s Prize.
      If the Nobel fakes do not Recall / Delete Obama’s Honor, their Integrity level will finally Be a Proven Nobel Prize worthy Joke.

      • Freedom

        It is already. Look at the chain of idiots that have recieved this so called awards.

        • http://Moreexpensive,moreunknowproblems. Lewis Munn

          Agreed. We need to move the UN somewhere else so it does not pollute the area over here.

          Maybe to the Scottish Moors, where they could build a stylish sprawling castle, and run the world in Medieval style?

    • Bob from Calif.

      You will know a persons heart by what fruit they produce. The fruit of Obummers actions is rotten to the core just like his sole.

      • http://Moreexpensive,moreunknowproblems. Lewis Munn

        His sole? I knew something was fishy about him from day 1!

        • Harold Olsen

          Does Obama even have a soul? I thought only humans have souls and Obama is a very poor excuse for a human being.

    • JJM

      And I thought you had to earn a prize. What idiots could issue such a noble (not anymore) prize on someone who had not yet performed?

  • rosina

    How can this be done SC.?
    No one has the the spunk or is it the ‘balls’ to do this today.
    Everyone is out for themselves especially the people who are supposedly representing us. BUT, they represent themselves ONLY.
    Raise their salaries when everyone else is suffering? That is ok but just let us stop seniors getting their yearly raise to cover this. (actually it is 3 years without a raise)
    Repay Social Security what has been stolen, stop people who never paid in from getting anything on SS or medicare. Who will do this?
    There is just NO ONE who cares about the real people and the scams and frauds going on.

    • Vagabond

      Rosina you summed it up very well. and you are so right about the social security being stolen and it was the damned democrats under lyndon johnson who did it in 1964 to finance the Vietnam war, that is why the democrats go for the young and ignorant vote because they know nothing about this,well I was in the Air Force when it happened,

      • Vigilant

        And let’s not forget Bill Clinton, who robbed SS funds to make it look like he had a surplus budget.

        But, push come to shove, neither Dems nor Repubs have ever considered SS funds to be anything more than a cash cow. Take away Congressional pensions and put them on Soc. Security, and then maybe things will change.

        • Paul S. Reamer

          The real issue and one that nobody addreses is. SS was suposedly created to provide an income of sortes for the elderly who have have lived their lives paid their taxes and paid into the system throught their working life. However it was a lie from the get go. It is nothing more than petty cash for every brain dead social program that the political elite dream up in order to get re elected and have a job for life at we the tax payers expense. The reform that it ( SS ) needs is to restrict the money coming into the ” fund ” to be untouchable for any other purpose than what it was originaly purported to be.If this were done and it was managed wisely SS would not only be solvent but retirees would have a very nice income to live on and it would be there for all future retirees to use.

          • Paul S. Reamer

            But what the hell. How do you get any elected official to don what is right, and not look at their position as an entitlement to screw us the poor ignorant unwashed peasants into the ground. I, We are just a voice crying in the widerness. And in the mind of these JERKS HACKS A@#$%S, anywhere outside the DC beltway is the wilderness.

          • KM

            Well said Paul!!
            Back to the issue in the article, obammer never did deserve that prize, or any other, for that matter. However, as several others have pointed out the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to other undeserving recipients. The prize is now meaningless and the Committee a bunch with their heads in the clouds.

    • http://Moreexpensive,moreunknowproblems. Lewis Munn

      Be nice to collect even just the COL missing now. But my electric company says there will be 100% yearly increases now for 4 more years due to all the new laws on electricity generation moving through and being enacted. Already got one massive increase!

      I wish Obama had to pay his electric bill for the Whitehouse personally, in cash, and get the whole 500% increase, while his income from the government remains fixed!! No raises for the guilty!

      He should also have to pay for office lights, and lighting and teleprompters for his meetings and pronouncements.

      Mmmm…and fuel for his galavanting jets!

      Be nice to see him face reality as we Citizens have to!!

      Finally, he needs to be TSA scanned each trip, and we need to see the pictures, so we can see how much of him is human, and how much pure brass! And how much of him doesn’t even cast a shadow!

      • KM

        To Lewis,
        And don’t forget the fuel for the limousine fleet which has increased 73% since he took office.
        Maybe that is where our COLA $$ went!?

  • Bob

    Okay, the Nobel committee is a bunch of morons and maobama is a liar and hypocrite. So what else is new?

  • sean murrey ILLInio

    he has done nothing to deserve it.

  • Michial Lawrence

    I wish that the Nobel Committee were able to revoke the prize to Obama and take it back. It should be awarded to someone who is more deserving of the award. I feel that Obama was giving the award for one reason and one reason only. It was given to him as a token award and nothing more.

    • Vagabond

      it was given to him for propaganda purpose’s only, that bunch of communists on the committee knew what they were doing, helping a COMRAD,

    • Vigilant

      It’s been said that awarding Obama with The NPP was like giving a new director an Academy Award in hopes that he might make a great movie.

      I’d also say that the NPP lost its credibility the moment it was given to Arafat, a terrorist (and a corrupt one at that) who went on to ruin any hopes of peace with Israel.

  • Steve B

    I’m sure the Nobel Peace Prize occupies an honored place on the Obama mantlepeace for all to see. It would be interesting to hear his answer
    when visitors come and ask how he earned the award. If he was any kind of real man he would return it…and ask that it be given to someone who really deserves it.
    Giving that prize to him was like giving the Congressional Medal Of Honor to a newly enlisted soldier…then handing him a rifle and saying…”It’s OK…we know you’ll earn it!”
    The Nobel Peace Prize has now been devalued….just like our dollars….and it’s meaning is just empty words.

    • Vagabond

      if he was any kind of real man, Steve we all know the answer to that. I doubt if obama will ever be half a man.

    • Harold Olsen

      “If he was any kind of real man he would return it…and ask that it be given to someone who really deserves it.”

      For Obama to do that he’d have to be a man of integrity, which he is not. To the left, “integrity” is a dirty word.

  • Raggs

    The Nobel prize doesn’t mean SH** anymore!!!!
    Obaba must have convinced the panel that he would throw Israel under the bus during his lieing global campaign.

    • Harold Olsen

      Throwing Israel under the bus is what he is making every effort to do.

    • lkar

      And there is the justification for the peace prize. In the minds of the committe and the progressive mind, BHO has now earned the prize.

  • Puget Sounder

    And so what? Anyone who doesn’t live under a rock knows the Nobel Foundation is corrupt and self-indulgent, and their awards are completely biased and pointless. Why is the press still wasting cyberspace on this? And most of all, why do people think the Nobel Foundation is some sort of an anointing power all over the world, pointing out their “anointed ones” for the awe and adoration of the masses? I’ll never get the predisposition most people have to so much appreciate the farcesque and butt-kissing aspects of life. Oh the humanity… Quite the whinning and bitching, Obama and The Nobel Foundation deserve each other…

    • Raggs

      Yeah I think some people see that, the elite are just grandstanding their boy child…

  • EltonJ

    We should just go nuclear. These wars are costing us too much money. It would cost less to nuke Afganistan than it would to send an army over there and fight until there’s no clear victory.

    As for the Nobel Peace Prize — the Nobel Foundation should revoke the prize and find someone else to give it too. Honestly, what were the Norwegian Government thinking?

    • Vigilant

      Rather than go nuclear, we should just pull out of all foreign wars and return the troops currently stationed at a myriad of overseas bases. Use them to police our southern borders, remain a strong force for defense purposes. The military budget can be cut substantially without harming the core “meat” of defense.

      Most all foreign aid (with one exception) can be reduced to zero, and we need to withdraw from the U.N. This is not isolationism, its realism.

      • lkar

        I agree with most of the withdrawal idea. We just need to maintain strong naval presence and bases worldwide and air strike capability. The ground stuff needs to come home!

  • peter

    C’mon now – the Nobel Peace Prize? That is a joke not an award.Just like the potus and the worst is that he ain’t finished yet. 5 years to go still – yeah man that should do it,the final annihilation. Do not think this guy does not understand what he is up to, why he does what he does and who he answers to. That would be foolish. Maybe in the next 5 years we can look forwrd to martial law in the good old USA.

    Somebody needs to save the USA from this guy.

        The following article was sent to me via email yesterday p.m. Dr. Williams is a black economist currently teaching at George Mason University.

        No Matter What

        By Dr. Walter Williams

        Can President Obama be defeated in 2012? No. He can’t. I am going on record as saying that President Barak Obama will win a second term.

        The media won’t tell you this because a good election campaign means hundreds of millions (or in Obama’s case billions) of dollars to them in advertising.

        But the truth is, there simply are no conditions under which Barak Obama can be defeated in 2012.
        The quality of the Republican candidate doesn’t matter. Obama gets reelected. Nine percent unemployment? No problem. Obama will win. Gas pricesmoving toward five dollars a gallon? He still wins. The economy soars or goes into the gutter. Obama wins. War in the Middle East ? He wins a second term.

        America’s role as the leading Superpower disappears? Hurrah for Barak Obama! The US . Government rushes toward bankruptcy, the dollar continues to sink on world markets and the price of daily goods and services soars due to inflation fueled by Obama’s extraordinary deficit spending? Obama wins handily.

        You are crazy Williams. Don’t you understand how volatile politics can be when overall economic, government, and world conditions are declining? Sure I do.

        And that’s why I know Obama will win. The American people are notoriously ignorant of economics. And economics is the key to why Obama should be defeated.

        Even when Obama’s policies lead the nation to final ruin, the majority of the American people are going to believe the bait-and-switch tactics Obama and his supporters in the media will use to explain why it isn’t his fault. After all, things were much worse than understood when he took office.

        Obama’s reelection is really a very, very simple math problem. Consider the following:

        1) Blacks will vote for Obama blindly. Period. Doesn’t matter what he does. It’s a race thing. He’s one of us,

        2) College educated women will vote for Obama. Though they will be offended by this, they swoon at his oratory. It’s really not more complex than that,

        3) Liberals will vote for Obama. He is their great hope,

        4) Democrats will vote for Obama. He is the leader of their party and his coat tails will carry them to victory nationwide,

        5) Hispanics will vote for Obama. He is the path to citizenship for those who are illegal and Hispanic leaders recognize the political clout they carry in the Democratic Party,

        6) Union members will vote overwhelmingly for Obama. He is their key to money and power in business, state and local politics,

        7) Big Business will support Obama. They already have. He has almost $1 Billion dollars in his reelection purse gained largely from his connections with Big Business and is gaining more everyday. Big Business loves Obama because he gives them access to taxpayer money so long as they support his social and political agenda,

        8) The media love him. They may attack the people who work for him, but they love him. After all, to not love him would be racist,

        9) Most other minorities and special interest groups will vote for him. Oddly, the overwhelming majority of Jews and Muslims will support him because they won’t vote Republican. American Indians will support him. Obviously homosexuals tend to vote Democratic. And lastly,

        10) Approximately half of independents will vote for Obama. And he doesn’t need anywhere near that number because he has all of the groups previously mentioned. The President will win an overwhelming victory in 2012.

        – Dr. Walter Williams

        • Stephan F.


          A fine assessment by the good doctor, as usual. And I completely agree with his pessimistic prognosis!

          We are at a point in time where more people than not rely on good-ole government — Fed, State, local — for their earnings. These human-parasites know exactly what they are doing. They contribute to (with your tax money) & vote for the politician who espouses the most hard-core socialist line, and promises them ever more goodies from the public treasury — and they are not about to give up the gravy train. Would you? These people vote lock-step simply because they know who butters their bread. If you were a typical govt employee (teacher, cop, firefighter, govt bureaucrat, union member) making double that of those in the private sector, why would you ever vote for a candidate who runs on a campaign to reduce government? It ain’t ever gonna happen. There are some 23 million-odd numbers of these critters and their numbers keep growing. Now, add in all the lucky folks receiving subsidies of every imaginable kind along with the brain-dead philosophical “liberal voter” and you should now fully understand where Dr. Williams is coming from.

          And one more thing: please stop using that stale and worn-out phrase, “voter’s have to start waking up.” Obama’s voters clearly will never wake up — they’ve been bought off.

    The media for the most part are committed Marxists and will never report anything that Obama does that would make him appear to be an idiot. That in itself is a full time job for our marxist/communist media in america.

    • http://personallibertydigest Brenda

      Fortunately for we the people, there are other sources for news. If we were depending on the three major networks, plus public TV as we were 20 years ago, imagine the things which could be pulled over us by the current administration. We just have to be sure when we do find truthful alternative news sources, we pass this along to all our friends. This is my first visit to this site. I look at a variety of news media, including the European newspapers. And of course, what would we do without talk radio and FOX? We need to vote Obama out in 2012.

  • Carol

    I can’t believe they did this because there are so many others that have done good things and this man all he has caused is US to go into more and more wars.

    He is truely an idiot in everyway shape and form no doubt.

    • Harold Olsen

      I wonder what Alfred Nobel, the Peace Prize’s founder, would think about what his baby has become. He created the Nobel Peace Prize to atone for inventing dynamite.

  • eddie47d

    Yes the Nobel Committee put the cart before the horse and made a dumb move or lack of common sense. Obama didn’t deserve it then and still hasn’t earned it. Now if you want to take on Obama for his excursion into Libya I’m right behind you. I personally don’t like any of our global wars. Now if you lambasted Bush,Reagan,Johnson,Nixon,etal for their military adventures then you have my attention. If this is strictly an Obama bash-fest where he can do wrong but all the others get a free pass then you have learned nothing. If it’s only political maneuvering to take on one side over another then you don’t have a vote of confidence. Now too many glorified the War in Iraq as a necessity but now that Obama is President all of a sudden it’s the wrong war. To me it was wrong then and still is wrong. Some of you do say bring our troops home and defend our nations borders. Some of you say that we should stop meddling in foreign conflicts. If that means under any President then I am with you. Those of you who support Republican wars because you are a Republican show your true colors. The would be the same for Democrats.

    • Bob

      It had nothing to do with a lack of common sense; the Nobel Committee knew just exactly what they were doing and that was to give undeserved credibility to a demon who is nothing but an empty suit. Nixon and Reagan did much more for world peace than all the democrats combined and these scum ignored their contributions.

      • eddie47d

        Bob is one of those who never learn and falls head over heal over over taking sides. He was clear about that. Nixon escalated the Vietnam War and half the deaths were under his administration. No Peace prize for him either. Reagan escalated numerous wars in Central America which caused 775,000 deaths and left the area in worse poverty.No credit there either.Granted he wasn’t afraid to confront the Soviet Union but what he gained on one front he lost on the other. Reagan also helped prop up Saddam and encouraged the Iran-Iraq conflict.Thanks to that bad call we can’t get ourselves out of that region for nothing.

    Here is a list of Obama crimes that have been verified as fact and also verified as being impeachable offenses:
    * ObamaCare ruled unconstitutional and ordered to halt by Federal Court – Obama Administration states it will implement regardless of Federal Courts
    * Accepted foreign title and office while acting as U.S. President and without consulting Congress – In 2009, Obama assumed the Chairmanship of the UN Security Council, the international body responsible for declaring war on behalf of UN

    * Bribery attempts in word and in deed – Obama Administration offers bribes to at least 3 politicians: Joe Sestak, Andrew Romanoff and Jim Matheson

    * Congress determines Cap & Trade unconstitutional and refuses to pass – Obama Administration orders EPA to enact provisions regardless of Congress

    * Oil Drilling Moratorium declared unconstitutional, ban lifted by Federal Court – Obama Administration continues to prevent drilling regardless of Federal Courts

    * Defense of Marriage Act overwhelmingly passed by the 104th Congress and signed into law by former President Bill Clinton – Obama Administration announces unilaterally its Department of Justice it will no longer enforce the law

    * Arizona SB 1070 Immigration Enforcement Act overwhelmingly passed by AZ Legislature – Obama Justice Department brings unconstitutional lawsuit against Arizona state

    * LTC Terrance Lakin, US Army seeks confirmation of lawful orders from CinC, is court martialed, sentenced to Leavenworth Prison – Obama and DOJ stonewall all proof of presidential eligibility under U.S. Constitution

    Where are those who could and should proceed with impeachment??

    looking at the wars in the middle east a different way, how would you like to lose a son in these combat zones. what will it matter if we continue down this road and in a year withdraw and the terrorist go on.
    you will have lost a loved one for what?. we will never change these people or their culture, i say arm the ones that don’t have a rifle and leave. let them kill each other off, they have been doing that for a thousand years and probably will the next thou.
    war is destruction of the populations and their infrastructure. we can’t play patty cake. if we choose to go to war against another nation then we shouldn’t be restricting our troops from total destruction, that means if you are being shot at from a house that may have women and children in it, then be prepared to destroy the house and all occupants. if that bothers you then don’t go to war. if we are attacked by terrorist anywhere we should pinpoint where they came from and eliminate the problem by a fierce strike at the country of origin, maybe then these countries might control their citizens a little better. we have little honor throughout the world because of the timid way we act, this will cause more problems, if you run from an animal he is more likely to attack you.

      Good ending point. So few people interact with dangerous animals anymore, tho, that they do not know, and they are not taught in the government-supported schools, either.

      Better point might be running from a drug-crazed gang in Chicago!

      Most people do not realize that these nations are fighting religious factional wars, and so few in America would ever fight for what they feel is right, anymore. This is the fault of liberal government education. And rapidly getting worse! Obama and his paid congressional lackies are rapidly changing even the definitions of right and wrong.

      And you get things like I ran onto recently where a loving father was kicked out of his home because a child drew a picture of a felt-tip marker pen, and the liberal interpretation was this meant the father was raping his daughter!

      Cost him $7000 in legal bills, and a month of the children wondering why Daddy never came back home anymore, before the social worker grudgingly admitted she might have been wrong! Under Obama, who is going to replace the $7000 out of the family budget, and the kids feeling rejected because Daddy was not there anymore?

      And we wonder why kids are growing up anti-social??

      Give Obama another 4 years and a UN mandate on how to raise kids, and see just what little, and big, monsters are created. But it is the Liberal Way!!

        Wise words.

        The Leftist Progressives are KILLING the Family… with pro-homosexual agenda, statist propaganda against parents… telling the youth to rebel against their stupid parents and a [terrible] Constitutional America, and Killing the parent’s authority over their own children… by writing laws that limit parents rights and make it impossible ‘parent’ at times…

        I have read many stories of parents who have had their baby or child taken from them or forced to attend public school… liberals hate home schooling which many Christians do so as not to get indoctrinated and taught poor behavior.

        There has been an orchestrated attack on The FAMILY and our FREEDOMS.

      Great post.

      Fight to win if they have attacked us or pull out and come home.
      Heck, let them kill each other as they have done for thousands of years.
      We don’t have to be the bullies of the world, nor the cowards.
