The Decline of Modern Academia

“Identity studies sum up everything that’s wrong with the humanities today,” Bawer told The Daily Caller. “They’re about nothing other than group identity, group oppression, and group grievance. Instead of engaging in objective scholarly study of, say, black American history or women’s literature, these departments are boosters for everything having to do with the group in question. It’s all slogans. Kids don’t learn anything other than to think of themselves as having been wronged by capitalism, by the West, by America, by white men.”

Plain and honest truths must be spoken with clarity. I dare to say that I’m believing more and more that I side a few degrees away from anarchy. A judging of conscience. A disciple of truth, respect, civility and service. Not because of man’s laws, but because of God’s laws. Common Sense is the method used for attacks. Vocalizing it is the weapon. Plain and simple truths will stand on their own. One need not get hot tempered and have a tantrum, the calmer you are in standing ground with the truth the more the other side’s ground begins to crumble like quicksand.  My 5 children will know the truth and will not be dumb because of me!

Dear Ms Fluke,

Originally written March 5, 2012:

Dear Ms. Fluke,

With the last weeks National coverage of contraception, I am deeply saddened that more women have not come out speaking against what you have testfied of in front of a sub – committee.   Where are the Christian women, where are the Muslim women that defend America, where any of the deeply religious members of this nation?  And why are we only allowing Conservative hosts Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and countless others to be the only ones speaking?

 

I for one am exhausted hearing the terms Democracy, Social Justice, right to work, right to health care, right to own a car, right to own a house, right to food, right to contraception.  Its not an issue of “right to” for everyone has their own right to pursue their own definition of their own happiness.  The issue is the forcing your opinion by taking away someone else’s equal right!

 

Democracy is a falsity of freedom for the lazy!  It opens the door wide open to an Oligarchy – ruled by a few then that leads to Monarchy.  If you don’t know what an Oligarchy is, I have provided a youtube video for you, so you will understand:

Those that think they have freedom to demand that their needs be met, are sorely unware that the handouts came from the government pickpocketing from other citizens.   First the government forces the citizens who have to give to those that have not by taxing.  If those that have do not pay their taxes they get fined a bigger amount and go to jail ( well those that oppose the left anyway).  Do you see the equal injustice?  Do you see the giving up freedom for laziness?  Let me put it another way:  Victim 1 demands contraception (you and those that agree with you).  The middle man (the government) says “Ok, I’ll be right back.”  and goes to the citizens at large (me and those like me that pay taxes).  The middle man digs their fingers into my purse grabs a percentage out based on what the middle man thinks is fair.  He doesn’t ask my opinion and then leaves and bring you your request.  In the end I got robbed, the handler took a bulk of the money and you get the minimal amount requested with strings attached.

 

Whatever happened to “where there is a will, there is a way”?  Past generations have helped to cause more problems by simply not owning up to their responsibility in this mess.

 

The Women’s suffrage movement started out with a good and just cause.  Although behind doors women were often sought for their thoughts on matters, they were told to hold their tongues in public.  A woman’s voice is important.  A woman’s right to have a family, or have a career, or both is her pursuit of happiness.  But the minute that right is infringed upon others it is open to ridicule, opinion, and leads down the path to legislation and rights of other being taken away.

 

If you,  Ms. Fluke,  and the countless of other females out there attending law school are too poor to go to Planned Parenthood to get their contraception, then perhaps its time to quit school and get a job.  I know I don’t work, nor my husband, with the intent to pay for your college and law degree, and your food stamps, and subsidized living, and your contraception.  But alas that is what the lazy democracy loving college students, such as yourself,  have been convinced should happen.

 

The collective “you” have infringed upon my equal right to provide for my own children, provide for my own healthcare, pay for my own groceries and gas, and have taken my right away to possibly take a trip to the Caribbean during my spring break!

 

Besides that, Ms. Fluke, you and your  plea that women need to be taken care of by the government has just set the Women’s movement 100 years.  WOMAN UP, Ms. Fluke, get a job, and get the h*** out of my Target brand purse!

 

We are fighting to remain a Republic government, meaning (for those who attend college) we are individuals that can take responsibility for ourselves, think for ourselves, work for ourselves.  I am my best advocate and know what my needs are and how to meet them.  This is a country of people that are working hard together to make us prosperous, cleaner, healthier, happier, peaceful, and smell better!  If you don’t want any part of that, I believe there is a country down south called Venezuela, or in Europe, which may be more appropriate France, that you might like better.

 

Sincerely, not so much yours,

 

Lisa

The Forward

Posted by on Oct 2, 2012 in Lisa's Personal Insights | 0 comments

Last August, the night before my county’s GOP Central Committee Meeting, I tossed and turned, not sleeping at all, over whether or not I should get involved.  I saw nothing but disorder from the outside.  I didn’t know why, how, who, what were the causes.  And truthfully I was scared to find out.

Up until August 2011, the Obama administration had done nothing but apologize for America.  They promised to bring the wealthy to justice by forcing more regulations and higher taxes.  This promise helped shut down small businesses.  This supposed ‘Great Recession’ that was declared over, was still going.  The announcement of the Iraqi war coming to an end was alluded to, meanwhile troops where being sent elsewhere against the laws of the Constitution.

In short chaos was everywhere, including the local levels.  The Ron Paul revolution was in full swing. The pre – season of the primaries was starting up.  Those in the Republican party were being categorized as either RINO’s or Conservatives.  The further right you got the more you became an Anarchist.  The Democrats were just as disorganized.  JFK Democrats were now having to be categorized as either ‘Blue Dogs’ or ‘Progressives’.  The further leftists were Socialists/Marxists, or Communists.  Where was the truth?  I knew that the direction for me was not on the left side.  That was a start!

By 6 am the next morning, my wrestling of thoughts provided the adrenaline to the phrase “I’m going to do it.”  The ‘IT’ was to run for the Bylaws committee.  A speech was prepared.  I asked my husband to go with me.  Up to the very last second I was trying to memorize the words.  I had read the Bylaws of both the state and the county.  There were too many differences, which made me uncomfortable.  Why one set of rules for the county and another set by the State?  I had a lot to learn.

Nobody knew who I was.  I shook a few hands and introduced myself.  I had no idea who these people where either.  My husband and I went to sit down.  My speech in hand.  When the time came for the nominees for Bylaws to come and give their 2 minute speech,  I still hadn’t backed out.   There were about 9 contenders.  4 women, 5 men. (from what I recall).  When my time came, I walked up to the podium, put my speech down, and spoke directly to the audience.  What surprised me was that not one word was used from my speech.  What did come out was how much we needed to beat this socialist agenda that was facing our country, and President Lincoln’s quote of a house divided would fall.  That was how I saw the Republican Party.  And that was why I was running for bylaws.  We needed to be on the same page with the National and State Republicans, if we were going to succeed in our county.  Yes, I still had a lot to learn.

The conclusion was that I took a little more than 1/3rd of the vote.  I was the top woman to have won.  But a majority was needed, so I lost.  Which was surprising fine with me.  I was pleased that at least some in  the crowd agreed with me.  Another thing I learned is that the County wanted to remain different and abide and create their own rules.  I wasn’t going to win the argument from the immediate inside, but I could possibly win influence by becoming more involved.

Education needed to be taught.  The Constitution needed to be studied in depth,  our Founder’s intentions needed to be known,  the parties needed to be weeded, and we needed to be unified.

Within weeks of that meeting, I started a meetup group, free to the public, inviting educators and legislatures to teach my community.  I personally took the time to find out events and go to them.  I started reading anything historical, bills that were written for my area, issues that affected me and my family and got to know my representatives.

A year later, I am more known, I have a more solid foundation for my arguments, and a clearer direction of where I am to go.  And thus begins my blog!
