Permanent crisis justifies permanent control of everybody and everything by the agencies of the central government. And permanent crises (in the form of the Cornavirus) is what we have to expect in a world in which over population (change that to – continued virus outbreaks) is producing a state of things, in which dictatorship under Communist (or Socialist) auspices becomes almost inevitable. Aldous Huxley “Brave New World” – 1932.
I thought to myself the other day, “What’s the big deal with open borders anyway? I mean, the European Union has open borders and they don’t seem to have any issues.” Well, beyond the mass migration that occurred over the past few years with hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees seeking access to various countries and the absolute crises that resulted, internal movement didn’t have a problem.
The United States has a severe migration crises over its southern border. The current administration is simply, and I mean literally, busing thousands upon thousands of illegal immigrants from the border to cities throughout the United States with the “stern warning” that they need to appear for their immigration hearing to determine if they can stay. What a fucking joke.
Borders are necessary as they determine how far one political entity can assert its power across land, sea and air. Does the Mexican government want the bozos in Washington D.C. passing legislation critical to Mexico? Of course not. No sane intelligent person could argue otherwise. Boundaries also establish “zones” were certain laws are to be applied and certain taxes levied against its inhabitants. Does Canada want its citizens paying taxes to the United States? Of course not. Borders also protect natural resources. Should Americans be allowed to waltz into any South American country and mine out its gold, silver, copper etc.?? Of course not.
It is argued that every country has the right to set its own rules for who may enter and leave, work, visit, do business, and reside within their borders. Well, except for the United States who is expected by other countries and by ultra socialist liberals to let anyone in at any time for any reason.
But, this blog post is not really about borders. It’s about boundaries. Or, perhaps rules would be a better term. There are rules which govern voting. Perhaps one of the most essential rules is that you need to be a citizen of a particular area, have a residentially related financial, legal, moral, educational interest in the voting zone. Why would I, who now reside in conservative Arizona, be allowed to vote in liberal NYC in an effort to change some socialist law? I shouldn’t. I have no interest there and I have no right to insert my political, moral, ethical, what-ever, feelings upon those citizens.
There is at least one member of the NY City Council who is trying to pass legislation to allow voting privileges to “non-citizens”. He estimates 800,000 new voters would be created for local issues. He argues, “Every human is a citizen of some country”. STOP. STOP. STOP. I agree, but what does that have to do with being allowed to vote in a country where you are NOT a citizen??
Essentially, foreigners will be allowed to dilute the vote of real NYC voters. Now, citizens of Red China, Russia, North Korea, Venezuela, etc can chose who is the Mayor of NY, who sits on the City Council, who is the district attorney, what is taught in schools. OH MY GOD !!!! Whose interests will these foreigners have? Hmmm, I wonder.
The liberals are trying very hard to dismantle our country. Their socialist agenda and desire to make us all one global country go forward every day. What is so shocking is that not one capitalist country has ever failed while socialist country after socialist country have failed economically, ethically, and politically.
I just don’t get it.
We all grew up singing what we thought was a very patriotic song. But, once you closely examine the lyrics and review the two versions that were ultimately cut from the song, you realize this is an extremely Socialist / Communist propaganda song.
The lyrics for This Land is Your Land were written around 1940. I don’t say the “song” was written, because Woody Guthrie used an existing melody of the Carter Family’s “When the Worlds on Fire”.
Guthrie wrote his lyric as a slap in the face to Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America”. The story goes that Guthrie was sick and tired of hearing the song sung all across the country by Kate Smith.
Guthrie, an aggressive supporter of communism and the Soviet Union, wanted to call his song, “God Blessed America for Me”. Two of the verses were specifically critical of the United States especially in the area of private property. He didn’t believe in private property. He believed everything belonged to everyone. So, even if you pulled yourself out of object poverty, worked hours upon hours, missed family time and essentially worked yourself to the bone, Guthrie and all of his do-nothing friends were entitled to participate in the fruits of your labor. They could waltz into your house and sleep in your bed, they could camp out in your backyard, eat your food, and use your utilities. After all, they were “made for you and me”.
Guthrie was very anti-war except he fully supported the Soviet invasion of Poland, blasted Franklin Roosevelt for loaning money to Finland so it could defend itself against the Soviets and was critical of the lend lease program to England. But being the typical hypocrite that Socialists are, he changed to a fully vigorous backing of the US in its fight against the Germans when they attacked the Soviet Union. And he never served. Another typical Socialist protocol – demand that the holes be dug but never pick up a shovel to help. Make sure someone else is doing all the work. He just sat back singing around the campfires while members of the Greatest Generation were dying to protect his commie idols. There are versus and versions of the song which are obvious shots at the income inequalities of the Great Depression and post-war periods.
And here we were, young, very impressionable grammar / primary school children, idolizing our teachers and following their lead. We forget we grew up in the era of the Vietnam War and most of these young teachers were probably war protestors on the weekend and Socialists when ever it suited their needs. So, when these protest songs and Socialist songs became part of our Music Class curriculum, we put out heads back and sang at the top of our lungs.
Recently, some of our more liberal leaning entertainers started incorporating the verses critical of the United States and private property back into their performances. It’s astonishing that these very same performers, basking in the freedoms that are the United States, bash it every chance they get. I wonder, when was last time these super rich entertainers shared the fruits of their labor like the true Socialists they dream to be.
In 2002 the Library of Congress chose the song as one of fifty to be added to the National Recording Registry.
I think this anti-American, Socialist song should be removed from that registry.
