If Harvard Students Are the Future – We are in Trouble

A number of Harvard students stated that America is the biggest threat to world peace.  Not ISIS, not Boko Haram, not al qaeda, not Iran and their nukes.

Ok, then:

 

Dear Harvard Student,

If you are among the many Harvard students and graduates that perceive America as a threat to world peace I would remind you of history.   Had it not been for the United States stopping Germany and Japan,  the whole world would have been enslaved.    If you were a Jew, Catholic, or other minority, then you would simply have been killed en-masse.   Were you to speak up and say that Germany was the enemy, then you would have been tortured then killed.  Then your family would have been killed just because they knew you.  Your country, which you seem to hate so much made it possible for you to speak your mind.

In Egypt, under the Muslim Brotherhood, if you were a Coptic Christian you would be stripped, tied behind a jeep and dragged through the town until dead.  The United States did not invent that type of radical Islam.  It preceded the United States by 1000 years.  It started when Muslims began expanding and taking over the property and lands of others.  The Moors and Saracens continued that tradition brutally killing infidels 300 years before the founding of our country.

Before it died beneath its own contradictions, the United States prevented the Soviet Union and Stalin from enslaving Europe and all of Southeast Asia.   There you could not own your own property and the state told you what to do for a living.  Perhaps you should review your textbook and see how many intellectuals and scientists Stalin murdered.  Harvard would not exist if it were not for the United States.

The death of 3000 Americans on 9/11 was not the first terrorist act performed by radical Muslims.   The history of terror fomented on the world by this Islamic group far precedes the founding of this country.  Their hatred is for non-believers.  It is not just Americans , but Christians, Atheists, Jews, Hindus and in many cases other Muslims.    Talking and acting like we are at fault and are the real threat is deluded.  When was the last time the United States government made videos of beheadings.  Even the terrorists in Guantanamo all still  have their heads.  We can’t say that about our journalists.

Had it not been for this country, your life, and the very existence of Harvard would be in doubt.   I do not know what they teach at Harvard these days that produces student with such a skewed view of this country.  I do not understand how Harvard students have absolutely no grasp of history.  The very freedom that lets you speak against this country has cost 100,000’s of lives to preserve over the last century, yet you dishonor all those that fought to make your life of ease and freedom possible.  If you really believe we are the great threat to the world, have the courage of your convictions, leave this country and renounce your citizenship.

 

Sincerely,

 

Keith Risman

Iran Has the Bomb

Did that get your attention?  How close are they?  According to Israel they will have a working nuclear bomb in months or less. So what will happen then?   Will they try to use it on Israel as they have promised?  Will they try to use it on us?. While we are busy bombing the desert sands of Iraq and Syria, Iran is not stopping its development of weapons of mass destruction.  While we are concerned with climate change and Ebola in far off lands we still have open and free borders.

When will we as a people quit being led around by news cycle liberal nose rings?  ABC says to focus on ISIS and we forget the open border and the terrorists streaming across into this country.  NBC tells us global warming is going to kill us all  although the models themselves were proven to have been manipulated.  Even though this year shows more Antarctic ice than ever before in history, and even though there has been no increase in average global temperatures over the last 20 years NBC still tells us that it is a crisis.  The American sheep lap it up like starving dogs in the butcher house.

CBS says that there is a war on women because the government won’t pay for their birth control, while real women across the world are beaten, sold as slaves and imprisoned as property under Sharia law.  Yet, the polls move as if this fictional war on women was real.

When are we going to stop listening to the propaganda machine?  We are following the holier than thou media into a life far less prosperous and free.  We should stop buying from their advertisers and start pushing them to tell the truth about what matters, rather than tell us lies about what does not.

Under the Government Bus

Jeff Sessions, the great Senator from Alabama,  is constantly talking about how the influx of illegals is damaging job prospects for American workers.  We usually think of this as affecting mostly farm and service jobs, but the reality is that it impacts every job.  IT workers are living on a salary that it the equivalent of that in the Clinton years.  On the low end the influx of illegals is devastating working poor Americans and for the middle class the H1B program has robbed skilled workers of opportunity.

Who do we blame for this.  The answer is simple, the Federal Government.  These are policies shaped strictly by large corporate contributions to PACs and candidates.  Companies that want to keep wages low have maneuvered our representatives into giving away the opportunity due American citizens.  This is all in the name of corporate profit and political gain.

As food inflation hits record highs, poverty hits record highs and the number of people on government assistance explodes, these policies, which penalize the majority of working Americans, remain unchanged.  Perhaps the news cycle, instead of focusing on ISIS, domestic violence in the NFL, the Kardashians, and Ferguson should focus on helping the majority of US citizens.  All the other stuff may be important, but compared to the misery the sell out of our citizenship has caused, it is little.

The solution is simple.  We need to close the borders and create huge penalties for hiring illegal workers.  Then we need to cancel the H1B program altogether.  The prosperity and the security for every US citizen will go up dramatically.  With hiring for illegal workers stopped, the ones here illegally will go home on their own.  Amazing.

It is a shame that so few in government are patriots to the tune of caring out our own citizens.

 

Kimaya Suni — Adopting a Country

     On the road, on the run, Kimaya Suni reflected on the path that had taken her from her hometown just outside of Mumbai, India to this nondescript hotel just outside of Georgetown, KY.    She had worked hard to take the pigeon English of her grade school in India to fluent English where she could compete for the research positions at the NIH.  After school she had stayed on as part of the H1B program and applied for citizenship.  That had been one of the proudest days of her life, the awarding of citizenship.  The ceremony attended by her friends and family brought tears to her eyes as she took the Oath of Citizenship.

     Her mind flashed back to an image of herself playing with her friends, wandering through the streets of Mumbai.  Her parents were of the upper caste and they lived an upper middle class life.  By Indian standards they were wealthy.  Yet, just walking a few blocks from her house would find her in the middle Dharavi of one of Mumbai’s most infamous slums.  The streets were  filled with squalor and multiple brothels lined the edge of the slum.  She had been with one of her friends when two guys, coming out of one of the brothels, tried to grab her and her friend.  What had ensued was a mad dash through the streets and narrow alley ways in order to escape enslavement or worse.  Her friend had run the other way and had not been lucky enough to get away.  Her friend had completely vanished after that.  Had she not been so skinny and managed to squeeze into one of the many small drainage tunnels that littered the landscape she too would have met the same fate.  She had believed the US never had things like that happen.  Now she was beginning to wonder.

    The search for her friend involved the police and many of her parents friends.  The police had always sounded nice but to her 10 year old ears there was something off about how they sounded.   She had always thought they were more involved in not finding her friend than in actually locating her.   It was one of those experiences that shape people.  It had made her a believer in the ideals of America.  Over time, watching the US government, her faith in those ideals had been shaken but still America was a wonderful place, freer than anywhere else in the world.  Even the NSA spying and Edward Snowden had not changed her mind.  Of course being hunted as a fugitive and wild beast was not how she expected the ideals of freedom to be played out.  She now understood how Snowden must have felt.   Moving to Russia is not out of the question.
