Posts Tagged ‘American exceptionalism’

I had no intention of watching the SOTU address last night.

For years they have been a laundry list of lies, half-truths, promises never intended to be kept, long on unmemorable clichés and short on substance.

The spectacle of one side of the room erupting in euphoric standing ovations at the end of every sentence while the other side sits in stony silence no matter what is said never fails to strike me as pathetic.

Like I said, I never watch the State of the Union but my wife wanted to hear what the president has to say about her new American heroes, the “dreamer children”.

I think she picked up a brain virus from the yentas on Facebook.

I’m glad I listened to her as the experience was most enlightening.

At the very least it was refreshing not to hear what a horrible country the USA is and how wicked its inhabitants are unless they are indigent, recently arrived and have a dark complexion.

On a slightly deeper level it was a masterful performance of flourishing rhetoric, maintaining an engaging delivery and never bogging down in any one particular subject matter.

But the true genius of it, and its iconic stature lies in how it has ripped the veil from those who call themselves Democrats.

The visual spectacle of their reactions to the spoken word clearly demonstrated to the world what the Democrats stand for and what they are against.

To wit:

In no particular order they are for;

Penury
Crime
Drug addiction
Illegal immigration
Hatred
Polarization
Disease
Unemployment

Likewise, they are against;

Mom
Apple pie
America
God
Decency
Family
Unity

Today someone referred to themselves as a Rockefeller Republican.

I said that’s nice, he’s dead for forty-two years. I’m a Trump Republican.

The average American is likelier than Europeans to defend Jews, experts say

On Friday, the World Zionist Organization released a survey comparing perceptions of antisemitism; 51 percent of respondents in Europe said wearing Jewish symbols in public made them feel unsafe.

It’s better here: That was the message of a panel of experts considering the rise of the extreme right and of antisemitism in the United States and Europe.

That was the good news at Monday’s forum, sponsored by Georgetown University’s Center for Jewish Civilization. The less good news was that no one could quite pin down why Americans were more resistant to antisemitism than Europeans. >>More

Looking for ways to solidify his legacy, Barack Obama is entertaining options to lead a nation state more befitting his philosophy and style of governance.

Leading candidates at this point include:

FREDONIA

KLOPSTAKIA

THE GRAND DUCHY OF FENWICK

Michelle will also welcome the lack of intolerance and hatred in those places as well.

Last night at bible class we were studying Joseph.

Joseph was the favorite of Jacob’s twelve sons.

Jacob gave him a “coat of many colors” which angered his brothers.

Joseph further angered his brothers by relating two dreams he had.

In the first dream, all the sons were cutting wheat and the brothers’ sheaths encircled and bowed down to Joseph’s sheath.

In the second one, Joseph describes how the sun, moon and eleven stars all bowed down to him.

At this point in the class, the guy sitting next to me around the table, a vocal supporter of Democrat Party platforms, said,

“I think Trump has that dream.”

I said,” Trump doesn’t have to dream it, it’s already happening.”

We then went on to read one of the bible commentators who said the first dream is about material prosperity and wealth, whereas the second is about spirituality and moral greatness. Rather than the two being contradictions, Joseph was the synthesis of them both. He dreamed of prosperity and a world cleansed of evil.

Almost sounds like a well-known New York real estate developer.

To quote Aerosmith, Dream On Donald!

If you know anything about Pakistani porn or vaginas then you are quite familiar with my newly nascent opinion of “journalists”

Until there is a reformation, restoration and reconstruction in this industry on the magnitude of what is required of Islam, the scare quotes are justified.

In this day and age of “news” being entertainment and the only news that matters is what pertains to entertainers, forever may the two be conflated, we here at TMQ2 proudly salute,

TED BAXTER: AN AMERICAN HERO

Some little known facts about Ted;

When he asked out the prom queen she shot him down.

His favorite TV show as a kid was Whirlybirds.

He encouraged his daughter to get naked and have public sex for Lena Dunham so he wouldn’t be thought of as a helicopter parent.

He was the inspiration and role model for TV heart-throb Brian Williams.

Brian, in case you haven’t heard, has just been awarded an official TMQ2 invitation to:

I just finished re-reading (first go around was 2006 ) Russel Shorto’s The Island at the Center of the World, which is as the subtitle explains, the epic story of Dutch Manhattan and the forgotten colony that shaped America.

As a result of the English takeover of the colony in 1664, we’ve all been fed the party line that America’s ideals, foundations and successes are all due to the hardy stock and moral superiority of our Pilgrim Fathers.

Shorto’s investigation, largely based on translations of Dutch 17th century documents reveals the actual truth.

shorto-book-coverThe Dutch did not confine themselves to the southern tip of Manhattan Island.

Their colonies were spread from Delaware to what is now Hartford Connecticut.

Present day maps contain the Dutch or Anglicized Dutch names such as New Castle, Delaware, Cape May New Jersey, the Schuylkill River in Pennsylvania, Rensselaer, and Brooklyn New York.

Words such as cookie, boss, cole slaw and Santa Claus exist in our vocabulary from Dutch origins.

More significant though was their concept of tolerance and acceptance that was most influential on building the American character.

The Dutch colonies were a result of private enterprise and designed to create profit for the Dutch West India Company.

This made Manhattan a commercial hub from the start and it attracted a diverse demographic, creating a culturally pluralistic, upwardly mobile and capitalistic society.

The Pilgrims who fled England to escape religious persecution quickly transformed their Plymouth bay and Massachusetts colonies into a theocracy equivalent to modern day Taliban. Refugees from there ended up in Dutch territory seeking freedom of religion.

The legal system in place was Dutch based and gave us the concept of public prosecutor, or district attorney.

It was the half Dutch, half English New York delegation to the Constitutional Convention that insisted on the Bill of Rights before they would ratify a document that limited the government’s infringement on personal freedom.

Bottom line — read the book.

Clowns like John Kerry and every other member of the Obama Administration—including Obama—have turned American exceptionalism into American deceptionalism.

The Three Stooges could easily outshine Kerry as the chief diplomat.

These pinko knob swabbers are clearly the greatest threat to our national security, assuming we have any national security left.

Obama and his criminal cronies are busy every day dismantling our country, piece by piece.

The big question is, What are we going to do about it?

The warning is that when you register to vote as a Democrat, be willing to have your brain removed in the process.

I was whisked through airport security yesterday while other travelers were scrutinized.

I saw a stroller and baby swabbed for residue and a woman wearing skin-tight pants and top get patted down by a female TSA agent even though it would have been impossible to conceal anything.

I didn’t have to remove my laptop from the bag or take off my shoes.

The woman sailing through right behind me, with a Jewish star around her neck, said that it’s worth paying the hundred bucks to get the expedited check-in.

I told her I didn’t pay anyone anything and what they should be doing if profiling.

She said her sons look like Arabs or Mexicans and always get checked out.

She expressed guilt at saying that and I told her the profiling should be based on behavior not looks, like how the Israelis do it.

Then she tells me “I’m a Democrat but I think there should be profiling.”

Like it’s a big secret the other Democrats can’t know about.

I told her to keep voting for Democrats to make sure the rules apply to everyone and the terrorists have the same rights as we do.
