Be Born Again in the Spirit

'But what saith it? The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.""

President Obama Uses Unions to Divide Nations, the World, Our Republic....Why?

Ever since the U.S. State Department has been found complicit of meddling in the affairs of a sovereign, foreign nation, by schooling, tooling and funding the insurgency in Egypt incited by a Google VP's radical group funded by the State Department, Code Pink (Communist group formed in California), and a plethora of other groups funded by regime destroyer George Soros including communist youth groups, it has become apparent that the 'change through chaos' course of action as laid out by communist movement organizer, Saul Alinsky, is being played out across the globe and at home in Wisconsin.

I am sad for Wisconsin because I am a Badger by birth although admittedly I have been an Indiana Hoosier by residence for the past 27 years. After serving 9 honorable and active Marine years, including two Vietnam tours, I was on my own and following business prospects.   It is a disgrace to see State democratic lawmakers sucuumb to this level of union/crowd thuggery and instead of sticking around in the statehouse to conduct business, as they were elected and are paid to do, they instead hid out at a resort in Illinois ...our nation's home of Chicago style 'thug' politics.

I was born in Milwaukee in 1947 and lived there through my 17th birthday and 19 days beyond.  At that point, in January of 1964 I petitioned my ward, Milwaukee County, to allow me to volunteer for the U. S. Marines...I left for boot camp on January 20th, 1964.  My parents, like many peoples', were divorced, alcoholic and proved incapable of taking care of one sister closest in age to me and I, the youngest so the county intervened and I grew up in county care...foster homes, children's home and boy's home. 

I loved America, even from the bus of Milwaukee County Children's Home, lovingly known as MCCH.  I loved being able to sit in the cheap seats at County Stadium to watch my Braves..Warren Spahn, Lew Burdette, Del Crandell, Joe Adcock, Red Schoendienst, Eddie Matthews, Johnny Logan, Wes Covington, Frank Torre, Hammerin' Hank Aaron,  Andy Pafko and so many others....and to be taken to a Christmas party at the downtown Pfister Hotel and to meet some of the same...we had week ends where cars trailering boats would come to MCCH early on a Saturday morning to take a whole bunch of us fishing at one of Wisconsin's super lakes and then a fish fry.....America was simple and good back then....we had come through World War II, that Koren War offically called a police action....and were well aware of Nikita Kruschev's threat that one day "Communism will Bury America...or more specifically, as I recall Nikita saying..."We will bury you".....familiar rhetoric, huh? I think communists still believe that and are acting out today.  I am recalling a happy youth in a happier and more hopeful America than we have today. I am recalling a Wisconsin I want to be able to return to and visit without the shame these self-indulgent unions etal., are foisting on that state today.

After my Marine years, I began my business career as I pursued a college education, having previously passed the GED test I took as a Marine.  Every place I worked, whether it was that first place in McLean, Virginia, a manufacturing facility run by Bendix, Communications Division from Towson, Maryland in which the work force was not represented by a union as some others such as ITT and Magnavox in Indiana which were....I gained experience and insight as to what is good and what is bad about unions today and what is considered bad both from the perspective of management which I represented and hourly employees whom I often supervised. I always felt that the most important requisite a supervisor should possess is the ability to naturally get along with people...carry some degree of empathy and sympathy where necessary but never to crippling degrees.  If you have one of those, you can then school and train that one in personnel and labor relations.

Workers anywhere, in any culture, are driven my internal and external influences....good and bad.  As a supervisor in a manufacturing operation where, for example, we assembled the very first production model as well as  pre-production models of a very successful Sincgars Airborne Radio/Transmitter (R/T)....this radio and it's ground version which was produced in volume at another city location is still being produced for our military and friendly governments worldwide today after beginning production in 1986.  Sincgars is a very good frequency hopping, internet enabled, GPS enabled R/T that has prevented friendly fire deaths probably in countless circumstances over the years....

That local union of the Internation Brotherhood of Electrical Workers built and are still building excellent military equipment which I consider a fine use of taxpayer dollars.  Those workers were usually in some cases my subordinates, i.e., I was their supervisor.  Among others.  I really had no trouble with the union contract or it's adminstration as most rules were common sense, how to treat people, rules that if all manufacturing operations anywhere adopted such rules voluntarily, they wouldn't need unions.  It is simple as common sense on how to treat people; just but fair...and by all means, equally.  We learned to document, document, document and go through a usual 4 step disciplinary process. as is unfortunately necessary at times.  At ITT and at Magnavox we had good relations with our unions....at Bendix, the workers were happy without one.

In union environments, it was almost impossible to move junior employees ahead of senior ones even though, after years of experience, it was obvious the junior employee had superior skills.  Sometimes, senior employees and of course junior ones alike lack intrinsic motivation...that thing that drives a person to demand the best of themselves at whatever they set their hand and mind to accomplish and even to demand they accomplish...something.  Unions encourage feather bedding...soft jobs for senior employees often times jobs that had little content at all....like the old caboose engineers on trains.  Unions further dis-spirit that intrinic drive of certain employees because they cannot be recognized in any fashion that might put more bread on their family table because of their merit.  They are treated equally with those who perform the minimum, by choice, to get by. My operators knew how I felt but like I said, I could not improve their ability to provide for their families.

In my 30 plus years of manufacturing experience, I will honestly say that unions have been driving industries to relocate out of country long before NAFTA was signed into law by Bill Clinton.....today, union leadership is determined to have the 'workers of the world, unite' and do not stand for due paying members in America only.  Rank and file union members need to understand that when they run out of other people's money to spend that we will all be in the same boat anyway....as we watch your brother and sister workers in Kenya and other such places,  spend the redistributed wealth Obama sees fit to send in their direction.

Strong but fair management can manage in any environment because the bottom line is producing a quality product, on time and at a profit.  To suggest that their should not be profit is to suggest that employees today do not want a place their kids can work tomorrow....you grow or die in business. Among the majority of union rank and file members I suspect the vast majority are thinking American patriots and the rest are making all the noise today.

As an intrinsically motivated individual myself, and probably one who could feel justified in screaming 'victim' and becoming of those 'gimme mo please' people in our society who will take a buck anyway he can get it, I find no reason for any person with a grain of self respect, to not stand up for themselves, for their ability to stand on their own two feet.  I find it disgusting that there are people out there, holding varying college degrees in education, engineering, etc...that find it in their best interest to unionize....to these I would say...grow a set and stand up proudly in your ability to take care of yourself without big brother's help.

I also understand the corrupt systems in place in state governments across the land where politicans have been making promises that amounted to little more than lies regarding pension funds for state union workers and how much is actually being saved and the like.....In Wisconsin, the newly elected Republican Governor Scott Walker has been working to bring out of control state spending to a place where union members would at least have to pay roughly 50% of the amount of paid by non-union workers in Wisconsin for various insurance coverages and were being asked to contribute 7% of their pay to their own retirement accounts....much like any of us would do with a 401K plan for example.

Holy crap...from the liberal coverage on this one would think the sky was falling.  We The People, that is those of us who understand that Americans are taxed enough already (TEA), understand that those inciting protests and carrying hateful, 'violence suggesting' signs need to stand alone. Union Leader thugs like  Andy Stern, Richard Trumka, President Obama's Organizing for America, George Soros, are stirring the pot in the liberal bastion wannabe state of Wisconsin....Sadly, the froot loop professor who first suggested that President Bush was responsible for the Arabls flying planes into the WTC, the Pentagon and the ground in Pennsylvania, yep...Badger teacher at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.  Another such truther is the disgraced communist Van Jones, under Obama's direct employ until he was outed as a commie....Van Jones still works for Soros who works on behalf of Obama....these are the tactics Van Jones espouses...'bottom up, top down, inside out' pressure cooker until the Republic bursts....

This Alinsky tactic of creating chaos and then rushing in like a beneficial dictator will not cut it in America....officially, this garbage will move from state to state and somewhere along the way, normal patriotic citizens will be sucked into a confrontation.  Obama needs this badly so he can perhaps enact martial law before the 2012 elections and move to disarm legal, patriotic America while the cast of bad guy characters will continue to brandish their own.

Obama's tactics around the middle-east in which he demands Mubarak in Egypt to stand down because he wasn't allowing the Muslim Brotherhood in while at the same time suggesting to Ahmadinejad in Iran, that he be not be too harsh on protestors (wink,wink) in a place where Israel hate and America hate is already the fashion of the day.  Continue to watch him babble as he swings back and forth between the forces out to topple so called friendly governments such as those in Bahrain, Libya  and Yemen and those already having governments in place that are sworn enemies to Israel and America such as Syria and increasingly, Turkey.

An Islamic caliphate is forming and the first threat is to Israel....It is apparent that President Obama, the narcisstic protagonist of all things Islamic, is tired of pissing around with Benjamin Netanyahu and issues such as neighborhoods being built in Israel's capital, Jerusalem.  Only those complicit in Obama's scheme or those with their heads firmly buried in the sand would suggest that Israel is not in the greatest danger of her storied and miraculous existence since 1948....Obama will see that Israel 'parts God's land' as they sign this so-called revamped Oslo Accord said to be 7 years in duration...Israel's enemies will surround her on all sides and she will be forced to allow her enemies a share of Jerusalem.  This Obama will see to....at the point of the Muslim sword.

Israel and the warnings of their prophet,  Ezekiel to this proud nation will be presented in a later blog..soon.

  It is said that if a watchman sees the danger approaching and says nothing, that the danger should indeed beset his household first.....Granted, I reside in America and not Israel but Israel is just the place where all of this starts.....and, ultimately, ends but America is officially one of all the nations in the world who will come against Israel in that day.  Not you and I perhaps...but Obama's official America will.

To my Christian and Jewish friends...I say Shalom and Next Year, Jerusalem....

  1. Roosevelt Vs. Obama

    "Speak softly and carry a big stick" was Teddy Roosevelt's slogan.
    Try to guess which President loves these two slogans:
    "Fight for Allah and not for America!"
    "Jigaboo for Jihad and not for Jesus!"
    Want some new facts about our lawless Hypocrite-in-Chief?
    Google "Obama Fulfilling the Bible" which some have even banned!
