    The Wide Awakes

    I rarely write here anymore, just the occasional random posting.   Facebook has sucked me in (and face it, it IS a great networking tool) so I spend most of my time there networking with like minded folks. Feel free to add me if you're on there, just be warned I am very political there. It was suggested to me I should post links to what I do spend my time on now which is promoting my book. There are three of them, Shattered Ashen Heart, The Hunter and The Elf Queen and Watering the Tree, Thoughts on Liberty and Tyranny (Foreword by Evan Sayet-yeah I'm name dropping) and you can find them at the following sites:

    Amazon (paperback and Kindle


    B&N.com (paperback and Nook)

    Smashwords (several ebook formats)

    You can also search iTunes for "Kender MacGowan" (I don't have iTunes so I can't get the link) and if you have a favorite online retailer that doesn't carry them email me here  with the site info and I will try to get on that site.

    The Seven Deadly Sins and How the Left Supports, Encourages and Praises Them.

    The Seven Deadly Sins, for those who do not know, is a list considered to be the base sins of all others. All sins can be traced to one of the seven on the list. The list is: Envy, Sloth, Greed, Lust, Gluttony, Pride and Wrath. What follows are examples of how the liberal establishment in America, from the government to academia and media (including Hollywood) support, encourage and praise the actions which lead to the downfall of man, destroying those qualities which make him good and leading him to be a worse human being, causing society as a whole to degrade into a morally, intellectually and physically lazy state.

    Let's start with the most common sin for a liberal. Envy. Liberalism is about the politics of envy. Envy of the rich and envy of the successful. In a recent speech President Obama made specific mention of private jet owners in an attempt to use envy to secure higher taxes. One of the ideas supported by liberals is “if you have a job someone else is unable to have a job therefore you owe them.” It is envy in it's purest form. When you strip away the language about equality, fairness and the common good, the thinking behind liberalism, (what there is of it) is “Since you have it I can't and that's not fair so you owe me.” Rhetoric from the left is full of “tax the rich” slogans and it's no accident socialist workers groups, unions and “social justice” groups are all to be found in the liberal camp. All of these groups support collectivism of one sort or another. It's always about sticking it to the rich guy which, in liberalism, happens to be anyone with more money than you. Liberalism's effective use of envy is their most constant and consistent deadly sin, the one which has brought them the most success but it is not the one with the most adverse effect on humanity. For that one we have to turn to sloth.

    Sloth is what drives the common liberals actions. Sloth is laziness and few things are as lazy as liberalism. Liberalism demands government do something about every little problem instead of working on a way to make the problem right themselves, and that's where sloth comes into play. What they fail to take into consideration is in order for someone to deal with the problem government takes money from those who aren't slothful (because they are employed) and work to lessen their own problems. Now, this isn't to say all liberals are not gainfully employed. Many of them are, and make quite a bit of money. One would think someone who is employed (and presumably paying taxes) would think about where the money to fix these problems comes from, but their laziness is greater than their ability to think, apparently. Of course, this leads us to the next deadly sin the liberals commit on a regular basis, which is greed, but not completely in the traditional sense.

    Liberals possess great amounts of greed for wealth, as long as the wealth belongs to someone else. Liberals are always after the wealth of “the rich” (there's that envy again) and yet, those liberals in power, the big “L” Liberals, continue to amass great wealth, fly on private jets and ride in limos while telling us to sacrifice and ride the bus. While we are told sacrifice for the good of the country the greed of the unions runs unchecked, with demands for greater salaries and benefits along with refusals to increase contributions and raise the age of retirement thus showing the pattern of liberal greed. In the last year Nancy Pelosi's net worth increased by eight million dollars to $45,000,000 dollars. One would think Pelosi would redistribute her personal wealth before demanding everyone else do so but hypocrisy is another word the left never apply to themselves

    The greed liberal's possess is not only the greed for wealth (even though the wealth of the top liberals in government would have you think otherwise) but greed for power. Liberals greed for power also knows no bounds, and the expansion of government under liberals has undergone a turbo boost since 2008. President Obama, unable to get many of his ideas through Congress, has taken to using regulations issued by government agencies to secure more power over the economy, business and our personal lives. As one example the Environmental Protection Agency is in the process of issuing regulations that will cause Texas refineries to shed jobs. His failure to secure cap and trade regulation has not stopped him from pursuing power through other means. Remember this is the man who said his energy plan would substantially cause energy costs to “skyrocket.” He failed to secure his plans through Congress so his pursuit of power continues through other channels. The attainment of power over all aspects of your life is the goal of modern liberals, and they will pursue these goals through any means available to them.

    Try this exercise if you believe the federal government isn't overbearing and into every corner of your life. Think of one thing NOT touched by federal laws, edicts or regulations. Just one thing. Go ahead.....I'll wait. Give up? Yeah, I gave up long ago. The federal government has far, far overstepped the bounds of federal authority, aided by a willing media and a complacent Supreme Court, assisted by academia teaching our children “America (and our traditionally held values) bad” and Hollywood making movies where vulgarity is praised and virtue demeaned. Which of course leads us to our next deadly sin, lust.

    Lust plays into a couple of the deadly sins liberals commit in their attack on our Liberty, but is shown most plainly in their support of hedonism (if it feels good do it) and their support of what's been called “the gay agenda.” As is well known the liberal left lets their lust lead them, sometimes to the end of their public career, (witness Anthony Weiner) more often than not, however, it earns them kudos, awards and promotions from their supporters (witness Barney Frank) as the left promotes depravity and isn't known for having any principles. As a counterpoint nearly all those from the other side of the aisle caught in compromising situations leave public life in shame.

    Lust also plays into their greed for power, as liberals lust after power like Lindsay Lohan lusts after Jagermeister, but their support of lust most adversely affects society in their support of vulgarity in the culture making media of TV, films and music. Sex in the City, Brokeback Mountain and Cee Lo Greens “F*** You” are three examples of the vulgarity liberals support, encourage and praise. I just pulled those out of thin air, but I am sure you can think of many, many more. Promoting lust promotes promiscuity, and by extension unwed teenaged mothers who often don't finish school. They then become dependent on welfare and other social programs, which we have seen spring from sloth, greed and envy. The deadly sin of lust leads us into the next deadly sin the left revels in, but again it's not in the traditional sense.

    That next sin is gluttony. But not only gluttony of food, drink and vices. For the liberals we need to go back to a more basic understanding of the word. Overindulgence. The left over indulges the sins of sloth (don't work we'll take care of you), greed (tax the rich so we can take care of you), envy (they have it, you don't, they owe you) and lust (if it feels good do it) this deadly sin alone covers more sins than any other. It's as if liberals have become so efficient at the deadly sins that gluttony becomes an umbrella sin for them with which to commit several sins at once. Liberals talk a good game about restraint, healthy living and smaller portions, but behind the scenes the Obama's had a Super Bowl menu of bratwurst, kielbasa, cheeseburgers, deep dish pizza and buffalo wings, hardly healthy food choices and certainly not those one would expect on the menu of the First Scolder. The gluttony of sins the left commit leads to our next sin, which is pride.

    It's odd to think of the liberals having pride (the flood of parades for latino/black/gay/insert your group here pride parades, days and groups notwithstanding) because pride usually comes from having done something to be proud of, but this is why pride may be one of their worst sins. The things they are proud of are outlined above. They take pride in their sins. They are proud when they raise taxes on “the rich” and create from whole cloth some new right for the poor. They are proud to befriend, defend and support terrorists while degrading, depriving and insulting our allies. They are proud when they support evil, defend vulgarity and subsidize failure. Conversely (and simply as a counterpoint) tax cuts, defense spending and less money for social programs tend to cause liberals to look shameful and apologize to the nearest camera.

    Taking pride in ones sins must surely be a doubly sinful thing to do and this pride in their sins leads to the last sin on the list, and the one that shows itself every time you get liberals together or challenge them with facts, logic and reason. The sin is wrath.

    The wrathful mindset of the liberal shows in everything they do, from their constant calls of “racist” against anyone who challenges them to their protest signs and their slogans. The anger shown by union thugs attacking a black conservative for passing out Gadsden flags at a town hall event in St. Louis only proved to us what we already knew, namely the unions are not afraid to use wrath and attack those with whom they disagree. It wasn't too long ago we heard President Obama say “If they bring a knife, we'll bring a gun”, “If you get hit, we will punch back twice as hard” and, hearkening back to Jim Crow and signaling the New Racism of the Left “We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back.”

    Part of this anger is borne out of their inability to have created their socialist utopia. However I am certain part of it comes from deep within, fueled by envy, greed and sloth. That, and the little voice in the back of their mind that calls them a hypocrite for pushing policies advocating theft from those who produce in order to give to those who do not to right some past, cosmic wrong.

    The policies liberals push have never worked on the scale they wish them to, and they never will, because they don't take into account the American Spirit as it has been. If we continue to let the liberals run academia, Hollywood, government and the media the American Spirit that believes one is responsible for their own well being could very well die, and that would be the greatest sin of all.
    This is a story of failure, both present and future.  It is a story of the dysfunctional family unit that is, unfortunately too common in society.  Sure, these particular circumstances are not as common, but the underlying dysfunction is all too common, and there's no sign of it lessening anytime soon.

    There's a lot of insanity in the world today, but I have heard of little as insane as a story I heard today.  There's a woman living hand to mouth at the age of 43, barely able to scrape along financially, with a man who is a little older than her, missing most of his teeth and with a 4th grade education. This man is racist, barely able to read, and scrapes along at what ever labor jobs he can find.
     
    At one time she showed real promise, was successful and owned a nice house and lived a life of relative ease and comfort. Sure, she smoked quite a bit of weed, but that, she claimed, was to balance out her bi-polar disorder and beat back her anxiety. For him it's always been the same story since he was a child, doing whatever he could to survive, conning people, working at what he could manage to get, but always just struggling along, always waiting for the next big score.

    She was raised in a liberal household, and lived her life as the quintessential liberal, hedonistic, always living for today with a belief system mostly based in feelings. She comes form a good family, full of successful people, a family of people who choose their mates wisely, seeking out those with similar education and goals to further the lives they have each built in their quest for the American Dream. Even given all of this she had a void in her heart. She felt something was missing.

    He was raised in a trailer park, beaten as a child, on his own at a young age when his single mother threw him out into the world.  He learned on the streets to each his own and if he could take it, it was his own.  He learned to trust nobody but himself, and barely able to read, he learned to be crafty, manipulative, wily.  On his own, without family that would care for him, he spent his life doing what he could to make his way, and no matter what he tried the shyster ways he couldn't escape would always lead him to do something to bring his world crashing down around his head.

    They hooked up in a moment when she was weak and lonely, which is always the way of the liberal, as they have nothing greater than themselves to believe in, and he quickly manipulated his way into her life completely. Even though she realized he wasn't right for her, and made attempts to leave him, he always manipulated her into staying through fear and pity, so she stayed with him. Partially because of his manipulation, partly in fear that, at her age, he might be her last shot to fill the void she had in her heart. What she thought the void was from is not, in fact, what caused the void.  What causes the void is a life led with only her immediate needs considered, and never considering what she was building, what life she was leading, what value she contributed to society.

    Instead of leading a life worth living, instead of building up a life of worth and value first, she meandered along, and at the age of 43 thinks she found the thing to fill the void, but instead she has simply brought more suffering and want into her life, and taken a path which virtually assures she will live hand to mouth for years, causing others to suffer from her selfishness, weakness and neediness, including the one person on the planet who is supposed to count on her to give her a life of value.

    For you see, these two have brought a child into the world. I feel sorry for that kid. Forty three years old with a newborn, money almost non-existent, prospects the same. She'll be raised in the feast or famine style the man can provide, with a woman unsuited to be a mother, who only wanted a child so late to try to fill the void in her soul.

    The void in your soul cannot be filled from without, only from within, and the saddest part of this story is now there's an innocent child, brought into the world to a mentally unstable woman and a mentally stunted man, and she will be raised up in this dysfunctional way, someday to be unleashed upon some poor, unsuspecting man to carry on the hollow, pathetic ways which are the only way she'll ever know, ever see, ever live.
    "Before the game is afoot, thou still let'st slip.”
    Will be the hue and cry from e'ery leftist lip
    They could not wait for election day
    To enact their evil cheating way
    Voter fraud The dish of the day
    As liberty has faltered
    They take up The battle cry
    As supplications to God fly
    Good patriots will walk the line
    As liberty does falter
    The cards are stacked against us lads
    The battle's been foretold
    We will see, with Gods pure grace
    Many enemy dead and cold
    And liberty wont falter
    Within our breast pounds freedoms beat
    Stronger than the demons heat
    Ahead lie glorious timeless feats
    As Liberty cannot falter
    Never doubt your destiny
    Nameless even tho you be
    As the one to save our liberty
    For Freedom shall not falter
    Strike up the band, your courage beats
    Within your hearts existence free
    For those who fear us surely flee
    Against the onslaught of Liberty
    As they know we will not falter
    Raise up the flag, the stars and stripes
    Old Glory and the cross
    We're here to wrest our Liberty
    From those to whom life is dross
    Any price we'll gladly pay
    Any hardship night or day
    The outcome's certain just one way
    As Liberty won't falter
    Scream your hatred, steal the vote
    Upon a darkened wall is wrote
    When freedom with a snarl woke
    LIBERTY DID NOT FALTER
    The battle was bloody and many died
    Brought on by years of deceptions and lies
    And in many graves brave men do lie
    BUT LIBERTY DID NOT FALTER
    And when we buried our honored dead
    Built cairns on hallowed ground
    Sometimes at night across the tombs
    Came a hollow haunting sound
    Bemoaning in the whispered breeze
    Across the marker stones
    Was one sure phrase to chill the spine
    You never fought alone
    We had your backs true patriots
    From japan out to Gibraltar
    Your served us well as soldiers should
    So Freedom Didn't Falter.
    You think you know me?

    ...about someone trying to either drag me into a fight for some reason or drive a wedge between me and someone I adore beyond measure, so this is a little ditty I wrote when this troublesome creature popped to mind when I was, fittingly, on the commode. I'd advise her against ever uttering my name again, as I hold a stylish neutral colored belt in sarcasm to the nth degree and love nothing more than making someone cry, and she is already, by some accounts, on such a razors edge of sanity that it's just be a feathers touch to send her completely over the edge.  She'll know who she is....and when she reads this I just want her to know back off, fuck off or die off, just leave my name out of your mouth lady...it doesn't sound pretty enough in there for you to utter it:



    Oh penny dear penny
    what have you done
    A life full of lies
    most spent on the run
    Stealing buildings and stuff
    from a hero of war
    Leaving us all to wonder
    what the hell you're good for
    Spreading lies of debauchery,
    your mouth full of deceit
    When the truth comes a-callin'
    you'd best be fast on your feet
    Cuz you can't hide from the law,
    a long arm justice has
    You're a cheap lying whore
    who's all ass and no class
    Al Ramirez, who we last saw running in the primary against Cary Fiorina to unseat Barbara Boxer is considering a run for California's 36th District.  Many times in the last election I heard Fiorina was the best candidate possible as she had the most appeal to independents and could self fund, which turned out to be poppycock.  Fiorina was beaten soundly by Boxer and in fact, statewide elections walloped the GOP here in California. 

    Why? Several reasons.  California has a large Hispanic population, and frankly the GOP cannot win without their support.  Al Ramirez brings the support of the Hispanic community.  The GOP, as has been pointed out ad nauseum, must also appeal to voters under 50.  Al Ramirez is under 50 and will appeal to the demographic.  Even though he is under 50 Al Ramirez is just the kind of American Success story the California Republican Party (CRP) should be backing in this race. But more about Al Ramirez and his success story later. The final thing the GOP need to do well here in California is to win in Los Angeles County. 

    That's a hard thing to do, for several reasons. The county is largely Hispanic for one thing, and Hispanics tend, for some reason, to vote democrat when the vote is for a person and conservative when the vote is for an issue.  Witness the last election.  Even though democrats stormed Sacramento handily, the propositions on the ballot went heavily in favor of the conservative wishes.  The Hispanic vote had a lot to do with that, just like it had a lot to do with Prop. 8 a couple of years back.

    As I said earlier, Al Ramirez is the American Success Story.  Frank DeMartini over at RedState has worked with Mr. Ramirez and has a great article on this as well here and you can read more about the accomplishments of Al Ramirez here.

    Al Ramirez brings is the right person at the right time in the right place.  I for one would like to see the CRP throw their weight behind him so we can take back the 36th District and turn this state around.
