Seasons Greetings - Democrat vs. Republican Style



For Our Democrat Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, our best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. We also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2006, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. And without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee. By accepting these greetings you are accepting these terms. This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for herself or himself or others, and is void where prohibited by law and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.



For Our Republican Friends:

Here's wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

This is ignorance. Anybody who mingles with avowed Democrats and Republicans knows that they rarely conform to this depiction of how they wish a season's greetings. Playing this as a liberal v conservative issue would have worked better.

Keep in mind that the Republican party formed because a few Democrats couldn't make their mind so they split. In other words Republicans are an afterthought of the Democratic party. It is ironic that the Republicans call themselves the grand old party. The title clearly belongs to the Democrats.

The Democrats built this country and have destroyed it. Republicans play the strong party card, but they are weak underneath.

This post shows you are a news-sopping frontrunner with a lack of knowledge in American history. But, who cares right?

I totally distrust the Democratic Party because of its modus operandi: fracture a society by sowing distrust through deceit, and conquer by a combination of: auctioning special interest privileges to the highest bidders; and keeping the rest on the government welfare teat to ensure their obedience.

Senator Hillary Clinton's description of the House of Representatives as a "plantation" when speaking to an African-American audience in Harlem:


When you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run like a plantation, and you know what I’m talking about. It has been run in a way so that nobody with a contrary view has had a chance to present legislation, to make an argument, to be heard.

Dem. New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin's speech in New Orleans:


We as black people, it’s time, it’s time for us to come together. It’s time for us to rebuild a New Orleans, the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans and I don’t care what people are saying uptown or wherever they are, this city will be chocolate at the end of the day.

What if Rep. Rudy Giuliani said the following after 9/11?


We as [WHITE] people, it’s time, it’s time for us to come together. It’s time for us to rebuild a New [YORK], the one that should be a [VANILLA] New [YORK] and I don’t care what people are saying uptown or wherever they are, this city will be [WHITE] at the end of the day.


Time and time again, I observe the Democrats playing the race card. The aim is to divide and conquer. If you divide the population into an infinite number of separate groups; puff up their chests with ultimately-empty notions of [insert group here]-Pride; pit them against one another so that their energies are expended in that direction instead of advancing themselves; then when they fail and fall to the bottom rungs of society, it is easier to make them grovel before you for their "special interests."

Look at unions. Look at how the Teacher's Union treat their members. Better yet, look at what the Teachers' Union does with member dues. How did they react to our Governor's measure to empower union members with regards to their dues?


Teachers' Pets
The NEA gave $65 million in its members' dues to left-liberal groups last year.

If we told you that an organization gave away more than $65 million last year to Jesse Jackson's Rainbow PUSH Coalition, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, Amnesty International, AIDS Walk Washington and dozens of other such advocacy groups, you'd probably assume we were describing a liberal philanthropy. In fact, those expenditures have all turned up on the financial disclosure report of the National Education Association, the country's largest teachers union.

But, hey, teachers are poorly paid (even when $65 million of their money was given out without their consent to special interests) and it's all our Republican Governor's fault. Right.

While not all Democrats are liberals, it is not too far to say that most Democrats are liberals.

Before bashing the Republicans, Democrats should do some research about the history of their party and slavery--and bear that in mind before accusing the Republicans of racism at every turn.

When Texas handled the hurricane better than Louisiana, instead of learning how the Governor of Texas handled the crisis better, Democrats put the reason at racial demographics (there are more whites in Texas, so the government responded better and faster).

Think of the "Battle Royal" section in Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man.


History?

Here's some:

Democrats supported slavery and fought and gave their lives to expand it.

Democrats supported and passed the Fugitive Slave Laws of 1793 & 1854.

Democrats supported and passed the Missouri Compromise to protect slavery.

Democrats supported and passed the Kansas Nebraska Act to expand slavery.

Democrats supported and backed the Dred Scott Decision.

Democrats supported and passed Jim Crow Laws.

Democrats supported and passed Black Codes.

Democrats opposed educating blacks and murdered our teachers.

Democrats opposed the Reconstruction Act of 1867.

Democrats opposed the Freedman Bureau as it pertained to blacks.

Democrats opposed the Emancipation Proclamation.

Democrats opposed the 13th , 14th, and 15th Amendments to end slavery, make black citizens and give blacks the right to vote.

Democrats opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1866.

Democrats opposed the Civil Right Act of 1875 and had it overturned by U.S. Supreme Court.

Various Democrats opposed the 1957 Civil Rights Acts.

Various Democrats argued against the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Acts.

Various Democrats argued against the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Acts.

Various Democrats voted against the 1972 Equal Employment Opportunity Act.

Democrats supported and backed Judge John Ferguson in the case of Plessy v Ferguson.

Democrats supported the School Board of Topeka Kansas in the case of Brown v The Board of Education of Topeka Kansas.

Southern Democrats opposed desegregation and integration.

Democrats started and supported several terrorist organizations including the Ku Klux Klan, an organization dedicated to use any means possible to terrorize African Americans and those who supported African Americans.


But, hey, meanwhile, with TWO African-Americans in the position of Secretary of State in the Bush administration, the Democrats continue to play the race card, accusing Republicans of having a racist agenda and "keeping the man down."

I won't go into the questions of where was Rev. Jesse Jackson and company when Clarence Ray Allen was put to death? Allen is a minority too. In fact, Allen belongs to an even smaller minority than African-Americans: Choctaw Indian.

Where was the Reverend Jesse Jackson?
Where was Sean Penn?

Oh, wait, never mind, it was the night of the Golden Globe Awards.

Having the Democrats speak about eradicating racism in America is like having Adolf Eichmann conducting the Shabbat at the synagogue.
