If you have a PC, (personal computer), you've probably seen the pictures. Those who are PC, (politically correct), are rather uncomfortable with these pictures.
The pictures are of Detroit, USA, and Hiroshima, Japan, circa 1945. Detroit was a beautiful, bustling, productive and thriving metropolis. Hiroshima was all but blown away by our brave military, thanks to the wisdom of Harry Truman.
Accompanying those on-line photos are the same two cities more than 60 years later. The landscape and economy of those two cities is totally reversed. Detroit is now a bankrupt garbage dump while Hiroshima thrives. What happened during the past 60 years that caused this?
In my opinion, the policies of the Sociocratic government of Detroit, in bed with the labor unions, sucked the successful productivity of Detroit dry. Detroit has not had a Republican mayor since 1957. This is a perfect example of the destruction brought on by "progressive" Sociocrats, coupled with the strangle-hold of labor unions. This is the same policy machine, oiled by the powerful labor unions, that rules in the White House, the U.S. Senate, and controls our children's education.
Socialism and the unrestrained power of labor unions is the proverbial tail wagging the dog and the dog is dying. Under the direction of our community organizer, our national debt increases daily.
Don't waste your time writing about the virtues of labor unions. I think most of us who actually take time to study U.S. History, agree that when unions came into being they were very important. Our Federal Government stepped in, legislated fair labor gobbledygook, created an entire Labor Department and gave birth to OSHA, all on our dime.
But the ever power-hungry labor unions continued to extort from their members and make demands of the Sociocrats they put in office until 55,000 manufacturing plants closed down and moved to other countries. To quote our former Secretary of State, "what difference does it make?"
Our bait-n-switch in chief, (promises one thing delivers another), has promised to transform America. He's late to the party. We're living the "change," and there's little "hope." Motown is now Notown and America has become the Unionized Socialist States of Amerika.
"You Americans are so gullible No, you won't accept Communism outright but we'll keep feeding you small doses of Socialism until you will finally wake up and find that you already have Communism." Nikita Khrushev at the U.N., Sept. 29, 1959.
Notes: I'm sorry that recently murdered Americans and the IRS being used for political purposes is already stored away in Mr. Cheah's attic. Patriots demand justice. I have yet to receive a direct answer to any of my direct questions addressed in print to Mr. Cheah. Like most of the progressive ideologs, when asked a question they switch to a different subject. I won't waste my time discussing an unconstitutional insurance reform law, (scam), which even the progressive author calls a "train wreck." News flash: When government takes control of private enterprise it's called Socialism.
Perhaps Mr. Cheah and I could "come together" and shine a light on the power of the Muslim Brotherhood, how it spawned and nurtured Al-Qaeda, how it supports Al-Qaeda using our taxpayer dollars, and how many of its members are serving in our own government at the pleasure of Mr. Obama and Madam Clinton.
I appreciated Peter Cavanaugh's thoughts on charity Aug. 8. I'm fairly well read in Holy Scripture but I just can't find any verses on "let the government take all your money and use it to buy votes in the name of charity." Christianity, like being an American, used to be an individual responsibility. American charity is mired in the IRS and has gone collective by law. That ain't in my Bible.
Lastly, I apologize to Ms. Schermerhorn for her having to go to her dictionary for the meaning of "sodomy." Her letter of Aug. 8, didn't list the definition that I was politely referring to. Apparently, like our prevaricator-in-chief, she considers sexual intercourse with any gender as an equality issue.
