Are we on the verge of a great political awakening?

Posted by iusbvision on April 5, 2010

Today I witnessed something that I never thought I would ever see.

I had a conversation with two black progressives and a feminist sociology major. One of the black progressives is a  billing and fund-raising administrator for a catholic hospital. The other I believe was a black studies major. The four of us spoke for almost an hour.

We all agreed that the ObamaCare bill will not only raise the costs of insurance but wasn’t designed to lower them, that the bill amounts to a tax on small business, the producers and job givers, that the health advisory boards will interfere with doctors in some cases even their private insurance patients, and that the ObamaCare bill is not designed to empower us, or empower doctors, but rather will empower government.

I was shocked. Not only that I found four self-proclaimed progressives who actually took the time to read up on the new law, but while admitting that they had an emotional attachment to Obama, they agreed that the facts were the facts, that this bill is bad for us and that Obama and the Democrats have been lying to us.

We agreed that the bill may kill very successful health care programs such as the Indiana HIP program. We also agreed that the ObamaCare bill is a threat to public education because the new law became more deficit friendly on paper because it put a massive unfunded mandate on state Medicaid programs. This means less funding for state-run public universities. Education is the top budget item for most states. We all agreed that the four of us could produce a superior consortium based health reform plan.

We discussed how we all now see the government as something that is becoming so big, greedy and corrupt that it is becoming a threat to our economic liberty and quality of life.

I have never met a progressive who was willing to be this critical of Obama ever, and now I have found four on a left-wing college campus in a single day.

Here on this blog we have reported that for the first time independents are polling farther towards the “right” than Republicans. By “Right” I mean our classic liberal/libertarian with restraint roots that the country was founded upon.

We have reported that polls are showing that more Democrats and Independents are favoring the Tea Party movement. We have reported that on the generic congressional ballot the Tea Party has defeated both Republicans and Democrats. We have reported that only about 1 in 5 believes that the Federal Government is looking out for the people.

All of this is unprecedented in the last 100 years.

We have reported that even traditional Democrats who may favor larger role for government than Republicans or Libertarians, are still people who believe in traditional American concepts such as the rule of law and not the whims of a judge or a president, limited government, and by no means want to see the federal government turn in to a cradle to the grave leviathan state.

This goes to show my friends that education is the key, there are many Democratic voters when given the honest facts are willing to stand up for traditional American philosophy.

The fact that the Democratic party could lose these three self-proclaimed progressives is an indicator of a real political realignment that is coming.

Forgotten Study: Sex Abuse in School 100 Times Worse than by Priests

Posted by iusbvision on April 5, 2010

UPDATE – Republican Heretic has more HERE.

Life Site News:

In the last several weeks such a quantity of ink has been spilled in newspapers across the globe about the priestly sex abuse scandals, that a casual reader might be forgiven for thinking that Catholic priests are the worst and most common perpetrators of child sex abuse.

But according to Charol Shakeshaft, the researcher of a little-remembered 2004 study prepared for the U.S. Department of Education, “the physical sexual abuse of students in schools is likely more than 100 times the abuse by priests.”

After effectively disappearing from the radar, Shakeshaft’s study is now being revisited by commentators seeking to restore a sense of proportion to the mainstream coverage of the Church scandal.

According to the 2004 study “the most accurate data available at this time” indicates that “nearly 9.6 percent of students are targets of educator sexual misconduct sometime during their school career.”

“Educator sexual misconduct is woefully under-studied,” writes the researcher. “We have scant data on incidence and even less on descriptions of predators and targets.  There are many questions that call for answers.“

In an article published on Monday, renowned Catholic commentator George Weigel referred to the Shakeshaft study, and observed that “The sexual and physical abuse of children and young people is a global plague” in which Catholic priests constitute only a small minority of perpetrators.

While Weigel observes that the findings of Shakeshaft’s study do nothing to mitigate the harm caused by priestly abuse, or excuse the “clericalism” and “fideism” that led bishops to ignore the problem, they do point to a gross imbalance in the level of scrutiny given to it, throwing suspicion on the motives of the news outlets that are pouring their resources into digging up decades-old dirt on the Church.

“The narrative that has been constructed is often less about the protection of the young (for whom the Catholic Church is, by empirical measure, the safest environment for young people in America today) than it is about taking the Church down,” he writes. 

Weigel observes that priestly sex abuse is “a phenomenon that spiked between the mid-1960s and the mid-1980s but seems to have virtually disappeared,” and that in recent years the Church has gone to great lengths to punish and remove priestly predators and to protect children. The result of these measures is that “six credible cases of clerical sexual abuse in 2009 were reported in the U.S. bishops’ annual audit, in a Church of some 65,000,000 members.”

Despite these facts, however, “the sexual abuse story in the global media is almost entirely a Catholic story, in which the Catholic Church is portrayed as the epicenter of the sexual abuse of the young.”

Outside of the Church, Shakeshaft is not alone in highlighting the largely unaddressed, and unpublicized problem of child sex abuse in schools. Sherryll Kraizer, executive director of the Denver-based Safe Child Program, told the Colorado Gazette in 2008 that school employees commonly ignore laws meant to prevent the sexual abuse of children.

“I see it regularly,” Kraizer said. “There are laws against failing to report, but the law is almost never enforced. Almost never.”

“What typically happens is you’ll have a teacher who’s spending a little too much time in a room with one child with the door shut,” Kraizer explained. “Another teacher sees it and reports it to the principal. The principal calls the suspected teacher in and says ‘Don’t do that,’ instead of contacting child protective services.”

“Before you know it, the teacher is driving the student home. A whole series of events will unfold, known to other teachers and the principal, and nobody contacts child services before it’s out of control. You see this documented in records after it eventually ends up in court.”

In an editorial last week, The Gazette revisited the testimony of Kraizer in the context of the Church abuse scandal coverage, concluding that “the much larger crisis remains in our public schools today, where children are raped and groped every day in the United States.”

“The media and others must maintain their watchful eye on the Catholic Church and other religious institutions,” wrote The Gazette, “But it’s no less tragic when a child gets abused at school.”

In 2004, shortly after the Shakeshaft study was released, Catholic League President William Donohue, who was unavailable for an interview for this story, asked, “Where is the media in all this?”

“Isn’t it news that the number of public school students who have been abused by a school employee is more than 100 times greater than the number of minors who have been abused by priests?” he asked.

“All those reporters, columnists, talking heads, attorneys general, D.A.’s, psychologists and victims groups who were so quick on the draw to get priests have a moral obligation to pursue this issue to the max.  If they don’t, they’re a fraud.”

NY Post: Small Businesses Facing 25% Tax Hike

Posted by iusbvision on April 5, 2010

New York Post:

Jobbing small business

The 26 million small businesses in the US — like Eneslow Shoes, headed by CEO Robert Schwartz— are getting buried under an avalanche of new taxes, which include:

* An increase of 4.6% in federal taxes from 35% to 39.6% (expiration of Bush tax cuts)

* An increase in capital gains taxes from 15% to 20% (expiration of Bush tax cuts)

* A new tax of 3.85% on investment income, dividends, rents, royalties mandated in the new health care bill

* An increase in the Medicare payroll tax to 2.35% as mandated in the new health care bill

* In states like New Jersey and others, state and municipal taxes have been raised by the average of almost 2%

 

More:

America’s jobs growth engine is being choked to death.

A record 25 percent increase in the taxes against US small businesses — from costs associated with new health care law, to an increased Medicare tax, increased capital gains taxes and higher state and city taxes — is repealing any ability of these entrepreneurs to add jobs to their payroll.

And the numbers for New York’s small- to medium-sized business are just as harrowing.

By one estimate, the effective tax rate on the 26 million small businesses across the country — which in the past have accounted for more than half of the job growth in the US — has jumped to 50 percent from 40 percent, sucking valuable cash from the businesses.

These dollars could have been used to add to payrolls or make capital improvements — but instead will be siphoned off by Uncle Sam, state and municipal governments.

“The impact of these higher taxes and reduced hiring will be a recovery cycle that will be much longer, be slower to take hold and be without much job growth,” said Al Angrisani, founder and CEO of Angrisani Turnarounds and former US Assistant Secretary of Labor under President Reagan.

A survey of 200 small businesses across the US by the economist found 51.5 percent of business owners in March were concerned about the viability of their businesses — up from 49.5 percent in February. More than eight million jobs have been lost during the current 28-month recession.While a healthy 162,000 jobs were added in March, it was accomplished with the help of heavy government stimulus. Meanwhile, the average length of joblessness rose to 31 weeks and hourly earnings were down, albeit slightly.

In New York, interviews with more than a dozen small business owners by The Post found a group of owners hurting under the weight of the new taxes.

Teresa Kramer, co-owner of Northside Bakery in Greenpoint said she is scared.

“We’d really need to raise our prices by 20 percent to stay even because our profit margins are shrinking as costs keep rising everywhere — for garbage and services, commuter taxes and other taxes,” said Kramer, a Polish immigrant who operates the two-store division of Old Poland Foods. The business employs 20 and rings up annual sales of about $2 million.

Kramer has stopped short of raising prices, at least for now. She added: “We’re producing more bread and product — but we’re still making less and less profit.”

In Manhattan, Robert Schwartz, the CEO of a three-unit shoe store chain, said he has never seen the tax burden this bad.

“This has been as hard as we’ve been hit in my 36 years of running this company,” said Schwartz, owner of Eneslow Shoes, which employs 50 people, including part-timers, on annual revenues of under $10 million. “It’s a tough economy and our costs continue to rise.”

Schwartz, who says he’s putting his salary back into the business in response to the environment, adds that overhead from taxes and other outside charges have become unbearable. “I certainly don’t think the new health care law will save me any money,” he said. “Now New York City wants to develop this paid sick leave legislation that would give employees up to nine paid sick days. It’s ludicrous. It takes the oxygen out of the blood.”

Fran Biderman-Gross, CEO of Advantages, a branding, mass communications and marketing company in Fresh Meadows, said with health care becoming mandatory she envisions more companies switching to independent contractors — who don’t require pricey health benefits — in order to stay in business.

“We created 16 million jobs during the recovery in the Reagan administration by cutting taxes and offering incentives to hire,” Angrisani noted. “Small business tax cuts are not compatible with the philosophy of this administration.”

Don’t Let the Progressive Secular Left Strip Christianity from American History

Posted by iusbvision on April 5, 2010

Big Government.com:

The war on Christianity is a particularly disturbing fight. The battle has been lowlighted over the years by leftists who twist themselves into intellectual knots in an effort to remove Christ from Christmas – which is like trying to remove the wet from water.

But the fact that they’re trying to defy the laws of physics doesn’t stop leftists.

Their war on American culture took a new turn this week, when the city of Davenport, Iowa, at the urging of its civil rights commission, decided to rebrand Good Friday as the “spring holiday.” A certain Baptist minister from Montgomery, Alabama might be shocked to find that civil rights activists these days are devoted to striking Christ from the public lexicon.

The decision sparked a national firestorm – Good Friday, after all, is merely the day that Christians around the nation and the world mark the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The city finally had to reverse its decision.

But if leftists have proven anything, it’s that they’re committed to their zealotry. They’re committed to removing Christ from American history, much like they’re committed to removing Christ from his own birthday.

Personally, I don’t care who you worship, whether it’s Jesus, Mohammad, Moses, Buddha or a corn chip with the face of John Lennon baked into it. You’re free to do whatever you please. But you cross the line when you try to rewrite history.

So with Good Friday just hours away, and with Sunday marking both the resurrection of Christ and the anniversary of the assassination of that Baptist minister from Montgomery, it pays to remind folks that Christianity and liberty have marched arm and arm from the very beginning of the nation.

The Pilgrim landing

“Having undertaken, for the Glory of God and advancement of the Christian Faith and Honour of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the First Colony in the Northern Parts of Virginia, do by these presents solemnly and mutually in the presence of God and one of another, Covenant and Combine ourselves together into a Civil Body Politic.” – The Mayflower Compact, Nov. 11, 1620

The Pilgrims sat aboard their leaky little vessel off the coast of Cape Cod when they issued this statement of purpose and the first political contract of the New World. It’s the pact which set in motion the concept of self governance by a people thousands of miles removed from the nearest seat of political power.

The words are enlightening: the Pilgrims, the way they saw it, didn’t just cross the sea to plant a new colony for king and country. They made this faith-filled Biblical sojourn, first and foremost, “For the Glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.”

The chimes of American freedom

Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the Land unto all the Inhabitants thereof.” – Inscription on the Liberty Bell, from Leviticus 25:10

The Liberty Bell is one of the great symbols of human freedom. Commissioned in 1751 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Pennsylvania’s charter, it was adopted by American revolutionaries in the fight against King George and by abolitionists in the fight against slavery. Since suffering its famous crack, the bell has been tapped only on rare historic occasions: to mark the invasion of Europe on D-Day, for example, or to show solidarity in the 1960s with those enslaved by Communists behind the Berlin Wall.

The men who cast this bronze paean to freedom certainly would not have passed muster with the PC crowd today. After all, they inscribed upon this great symbol of America words of Biblical liberation that came straight from the Old Testament. Hell, in this day and age, the Liberty Bell would be a violation of somebody’s “civil rights.”

The defense of the nation

“Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation; Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just; And this be our motto: ‘In God is our trust.’” – Fourth verse of the Star-Spangled Banner, 1814

The origin of our national anthem was once a basic piece of education that any child could recite: Francis Scott Key was aboard a British ship during the War of 1812, when he saw Baltimore’s Fort McHenry, and his nation itself, bombarded all night by the mighty British empire. After the onslaught, he was shocked to find that “our flag was still there” and was overcome by patriotic fervor. He captured his emotions in a poem that became the words of our national anthem.

Few people know Key’s story today. So they certainly can’t be expected to know the fourth verse – in which Key attributes the American victory against the world’s mightiest empire to Biblical deliverance. He suggests in our anthem that we should “Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.”

The philosophy of the Founding Fathers

“We must reduce our volume to the simple evangelists, select, even from them, the very words only of Jesus … There will be found remaining the most sublime and benevolent code of morals which has ever been offered to man.” – Thomas Jefferson, Oct. 13, 1813

Did you know that the author of the Declaration of Independence was drinking the Jesus Kool-Aid? Did you know that he wrote a tribute to Jesus known today as “The Jefferson Bible?”

Probably not. Because leftists, especially those in academia, have worked diligently to strip the Christian beliefs out of the history of the Founding Fathers, choosing instead to paint them as non-denominational Deists.

Jefferson’s own faith has been hotly debated. He was not a faithful church attendant. But he openly embraced Christian principals and, in his own words, considered Christ, not Locke or Voltaire, “the most sublime and benevolent” philosopher.

“The Jefferson Bible” was finally published after his death with the subtitle “The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth.”

The tribute to the Father of the Country

“Laus Deo” (“Praise be to God”) – words atop the Washington Monument, completed 1884

George Washington is the Abraham of the American pantheon, the man whose undying faith made him willing to sacrifice everything he held dear in devotion to the cause.

Abraham today is the father of the great monotheistic faiths. Washington is the father of his country and, in turn, the father of the great representative governments and the classical liberalism that came to dominate global political theory in the 20th century. He’s the father of the very same values that the leftists are fighting to undermine today.

The Washington Monument, meanwhile, is our nation’s tribute to its father. It remains the tallest granite structure in the world – 555 feet high – and, fittingly, the tallest structure in the city named in his honor.

The monument’s builders, curiously, put this Latin tribute to God at the very top of the obelisk. It’s in a place that no human can read it – only those who might be looking down from above.

The outsider’s perspective

“The religious atmosphere of the country was the first thing that struck me on arrival in the United States.” – Alexis de Tocqueville, 1835

When de Tocqueville wrote “Democracy in America,” his definitive study of the early United States, he used the word “democracy” as a synonym for the young nation. He also marveled at the vigorous and often chaotic social discourse in all aspects of American life – which stood in sharp contrast to the structured existences that defined the tired old monarchies of Europe.

We all know today that those crazy right-wing wacko Americans are more likely to attend church today than Europeans. But even in de Tocqueville’s day, “the religious atmosphere of the country” was enough to shock a visitor from the festering cesspool of war, disease and misery that was Europe.

The religious atmosphere of the country wasn’t just something he noted in the hundreds of pages that went on to form his landmark history. It was so prevalent that it was “the first thing that struck” him about the nation.

The fight to end slavery

“Another and better day is dawning; every influence of literature, of poetry and of art, in our times, is becoming more and more in unison with the great master chord of Christianity, ‘good-will to man.’” – Harriet Beecher Stowe, in the preface to “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” 1852

Stowe’s masterpiece about the dehumanizing indignity of slavery is considered the book that launched the Civil War. Stowe, like many early abolitionists, considered the liberation of the slaves elemental to Christian faith.

No surprise here: the emancipation movement was led largely by Christian fundamentalists … you know, people who might be branded crazy right wingers today. Stowe, herself, was the daughter of a Calvinist minister, using her belief in the “great master chord of Christianity” to fight for justice in America. Not sure they tell you this in the textbooks.

The birth of a national holiday

I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.” – Abraham Lincoln, Oct. 3, 1863

Thanksgiving is the great American festival of bounty – a day when we pause as a nation, smack dab in the middle of the work week, to take stock of our lives and say thanks for our blessings. Sounds fairly Christian, doesn’t it? Well, it should.

A day of thanks was, of course, celebrated by the Pilgrims in 1621. But it became a national holiday upon the Great Emancipator’s urging in 1863, right at the very depths of the Civil War. Lincoln didn’t see Thanksgiving as a secular celebration. He saw it as a day to bow down at the feet of the nation’s Christian God, “the beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.”

The national battle cry

“In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea; With a wisdom in his bosom that transfigures you and me; As he died to make men holy, let us die to make men free.” – Julia Ward Howe, The Battle Hymn of the Republic, 1861

Think of the Battle Hymn of the Republic as the national fight song – the message of Christian hope and salvation meant to inspire our battle weary in times of blood and strife.

It’s no less than a statement of national purpose, penned early in the Civil War, and the battle cry of freedom for the enslaved: Americans sacrificed their young men in battle for the same reasons that Christ was sacrificed on the cross – “to make men free.”

There is no more powerful statement of the liberating power of American Christianity.

The liberation of Europe in the nation’s finest hour

“Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity … Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.” – President Roosevelt’s D-Day prayer, June 6, 1944

To me, no passage in history does a better job of exposing the radical agenda of modern leftists and their quest to expunge Christianity from the national record. After all, it was just 66 years ago that a devoutly Christian nation sent its sons to liberate an enslaved continent. Nervous Americans on D-Day coped the best way they could, by turning to their Christian faith. Churches across the nation were flooded with worshippers on D-Day, which was a Tuesday.

It was such a stressful time for Americans that the President – a leftist by the standards of his era – issued a call to prayer to console and steel the nation. In fact, these very words, this Democratic president’s Christian prayer, were published smack dab front and center on page one of the New York Times itself on June 7, 1944.

Imagine the leftist hysteria if President Bush had issued a national prayer of Christian faith. Imagine if the N.Y. Times actually published the words without judgment.

It wouldn’t happen today. But just two generations ago – in the finest hour in the history of Western democracy – faith and liberty marched arm and arm in the American consciousness and across the beaches of Normandy.

America’s conquest of the Heavens

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth; And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep; And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light; And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.” – William Anders aboard Apollo 8, Christmas Eve, 1968

Anders was the captain of the Apollo 8 mission and he and his team of astronauts (Jim Lovell, Frank Borman) were the first Americans to circle the moon. At the time, no humans had ever broken so far from the bonds of Earth. It was the Apollo 8 mission that gave humanity its first look at itself, with the powerful image known as Earth Rise – the blue marble coming up out of the eternal black void of space and over the horizon of the moon. The photo was taken by Anders on Christmas Eve.

Anders, Lovell and Borman, in their effort to find the right words, turned to Genesis. They took turns reading the first words of the Bible, transmitting the message back to Earth in what was, at the time, the most watched television broadcast in history.

It was a moment that marked a turning point in human history. It also marked a turning point in the war on Christianity. An intolerant atheist, Madalyn Murray O’Hair, decided to sue the government over the reading.

Her suit was tossed out by the Supreme Court. But the government was cowed into submission. Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the man, gave himself Communion soon after he and Neil Armstrong landed on the moon in July 1969. But his desire to read from the Book of John (“I am the vine, you are the branches. Whosoever abides in me will bring forth much fruit”) and broadcast it back to Earth was denied by mission control.

But the history should be known: the faith in the Christian God that inspired the Pilgrims to cross the seas also inspired Americans to become the first and only people to orbit and then land on the moon.

The martyrdom of a liberator

“Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!” – Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., April 3, 1968

Martin Luther King Jr. is a hero celebrated by Americans from all walks of life. His genius is that he used the very words of the Founding Fathers to point out the fact that the nation had failed to live up to the standards they had set in place 200 years earlier.

But just as Christ has been expunged from much of American history, Christ has also been expunged from the civil rights movement.

It’s actually taken a remarkable bit of intellectual dexterity for the leftists to pull off this stunt, considering that the  spiritual leader of the civil rights movement was a Baptist minister. King also happened to lead the most well known and most powerful civil rights organization, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

Forty-two years ago this Saturday, King made his last speech the night before he was assassinated. He used his Christian faith to rally the nation to his cause and to stand up bravely in the face of death: “I’m not worried about anything. I’m not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!” he said with chilling conviction in his faith and his cause.

It’s only fitting, and certainly no coincidence, that the last 12 words that the Reverend spoke in public were the very first words of the Battle Hymn of the Republic – the American battle cry of emancipation in the name of Christ.

Leftists may not like the fact that liberty and Christianity have walked arm and arm across America for nearly 400 years. But their disdain for that history doesn’t give them the right to expunge that history from the record books.

Unemployment rate for young workers highest rate since 1948

Posted by iusbvision on April 5, 2010

Wall Street Journal – The unemployment rate for workers ages 16 to 29 was 15.2% in March, the highest rate since 1948, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

 

Folks, since 1948, that is when soldiers starting coming home when their enlistments expired at the end of WWII and so many young people had not found jobs yet.

In this regulatory environment with the new taxes on business and the regulatory uncertainty, why would anyone start a business or invest risk capital here now ?

New York Times Paul Krugman Admits: Death Panel “Advisory Boards” Will Be able to Deny Treatments; Will be a “Cost Saver”

Posted by iusbvision on April 5, 2010

The not so surprising reversal now that ObamaCare has passed, and this won’t be the last.

Remember how I have told you how most economists are merely political whores who espouse politically motivated policies and call it “science” and “economics”? Well of all of them Paul Krugman is the worst. As I have stated before it amazes me how much basic economics Paul Krugman has to forget every week to write what he writes. He is a far left ideaologue with a very hateful streak.

Here at IUSB when I took Macro Economics, the first professor who I was going to take the class from was using a textbook by Paul Krugman and when students voiced concern over that the professor’s response was “its ok Krugman won the Nobel Prize”… umm well so did Obama after being in office only 9 days. Needless to say I fired that foolish professor and signed up for the same class with a professor who was a real Milton Friedman trained economist.

So after a year of the Democrats and the elite media calling Sarah Palin and others who examined these advisory boards liars; after saying over and over that it isn’t in the bill, after saying that no bureaucrat will ever come between you and your doctor, after saying there will be no rationing, the elite media king of these liars, Paul Krugman, finally admits some of the truth.

More reversals will come you can be sure. Think about all the lies the elite media and the president’s allies told us in the passed year.
