Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like . . . - Galatians 5:19-21
I trust that everyone had a good Thanksgiving and that you have survived the ridiculousness of “Black Friday” and the beginning of the commercialized Christmas season. This is the time of year that I am usually reflective on more spiritual things, where I am as a person, where this country is, etc. I deliberately avoid any shopping or unnecessary errands other than grocery shopping. I used to get caught up in getting that “great deal” and used to do my Christmas shopping whenever I could – even if that meant at the last minute. However, I have changed in recent years. Now, I get my shopping done early and utilize ordering stuff to avoid being in the crowds of crazies. Then, I can relax and focus on more important things . . . as should be the case from the beginning.
We have become more and more commercialized and materialistic, as a society. Personally, I’m sick of it. We are about to be forced into another term with an administration who does not like America as we know it, nor do they acknowledge God in anything. To my knowledge, Obama has now made it through 4 Thanksgiving statements without a single reference to God. As I stated in my Thanksgiving series (go back and read the 2nd part if you haven’t already), Thanksgiving is ALL about God and cannot exist apart from Him. However, it seems this administration thinks they are gods so I shouldn’t be too surprised. Alas, society seems to keep going on the wrong path. One look at the Drudge Report today, I saw a list of headlines from Black Friday chaos around the country. I know it has always been a madhouse, but it just seems to keep getting worse. Here’s a small screen shot of what I saw today:
You can go to the Drudge Report and click on any one of those links and read the actual stories.
Then, for more links and commentary, The Economic Collapse Blog posted this story. I’d recommend you read over it, just to see what they say. They make a great point in this by stating, “If people are willing to riot to save money on a cell phone, what would they be willing to do to feed their families? Are the Black Friday riots a very small preview of the civil unrest that is coming when society eventually breaks down?” Then, a little later, they write, “In the end, it is not that big of a deal that people want to fight with one another to save 50 dollars on a cell phone. But this kind of extreme selfishness and desperation could become a massive problem someday if society breaks down and suddenly millions of extremely selfish and desperate people are scrambling for survival.”
Do people realize the state of the country? Does the general public have any idea how bad off we are and how close we are to an economic collapse? To make things worse, I saw this story on Breitbart about Occupy Wall Street’s plan, heavily pushed by Frances Fox Piven. The entire goal of OWS is to bring down the American financial system and, now, they’re saying they can do this by complete lawlessness. Some of it will be blatant, I’m sure, but some of it is fraudulent and is basic lying about everything – especially when it comes to bills. In fact, they now have their own manual that tells them how to deal with debt matters in their own life . . . fraudulently. That manual is referenced and linked in Breitbart’s story. However, if you want to read it without going to another page, you can download it here.
If you’ve been an Unapologetically Right reader for a while, you know, a while back, I said that OWS is not done and they will be back. So, let’s say they succeed. Or, shoot, even if they fail again, what if something else triggers our economy to collapse. What then? As the Economic Collapse Blog questions, if people get so stupid, irresponsible, and desperate to save a couple of bucks on crap that has no meaning, how much more lawless and crazy will things get if they need to feed themselves and their family? Something to think about – not only in regard to crazy people, but yourself. Are you prepared for the unfortunate? Are you able to be self sufficient enough that if the government offers help, will you be able to wave them off and not be enslaved to them?
More importantly, as the title of this entry states, who are we becoming? Have we moved so far off the tracks that we have no idea what’s important any more? This seems to really be an upside world, now. That is no longer a cliche, but it seems to be reality! Where have our values gone? Where has our general respect gone? Where has our acknowledgment of and love for God gone? Where has our patriotism gone? Who are we?
I don’t know about you, but I know where my heart is and it is nowhere near where this movement or this administration is going. We can only fix society by fixing ourselves, then, hopefully, influence others. However, as I have stated a million times before, no change will ever happen apart from God. We have to get back to our foundation, America! This is a good time of the year to be reflecting and seeing what needs to change in our own lives. Let’s do it and stand strong.

I was just given a link by a fellow blogger, “consideragain,” that shows how incredibly fantastic the occupy movement is (sarcasm). The link is a rap sheet that, as of December 9, 2011, has 417 items on it. You have to figure as widespread as the movement is, there are probably plenty more offenses not recorded. Also, consider that it is, now, May 2012 and we’ve already heard of bomb plots, vandalism, and other socially unacceptable acts. Is this the kind of group we want to follow and model ourselves after? I would hope not. God knows I don’t. I want to send them all on their hippie way to a communist country and let them be as happy as they can be in that mecca of poverty and crappiness. I’ll keep the American way of life, thank you.

If you’d like to read more, I’d recommend it. This is a great eye-opener. You can read it here.
In case you didn’t see they’re announcement last night, I posted on it. The Occupy Midsummer extravaganza looks . . . . well, it looks like a socialist, hippie event. Check that post out while you’re here!
And a HUGE thank you to Consideragain for the link!!
Our Occupy hippie friends are already planning a big global hippie “holiday” called Occupy Midsummer! That sounds great, doesn’t it? It’s coming up on June 20th. This is bound to be a great time where they can all come together and “eat, drink, sing, and dance.” And, hey kids, they won’t be dancing just anywhere! They’ll be dancing on “the future grave of austerity.” That sounds real positive and American, doesn’t it?
But wait . . . . there’s more . . .
They’re demanding a “universal living wage!!!” What is that? I’m glad you asked. Here’s what they say:
“According to wikipedia, a living wage is ¨the minimum hourly income necessary for a worker to meet basic needs¨ such as ¨housing, food, utilities, transport, health care, and recreation.¨ We aren’t calling for a dollar amount; living wages should be tied to cost of living and account for inflation. In other words, we envision a world where everyone has whatever it costs to provide for everything a given person or community needs.
By universal, we mean that everyone, everywhere deserves the right to live without poverty and the entire 99% across the world must stand in solidarity to fight for our commons. The struggle must include us all, regardless of occupation or immigration status, and must be waged at every level: from individual employers to cities, states, nations, and beyond. We live in a globalized world ruled by transnational corporations. We must have a transnational demand: A living wage for every person on the planet.”
That sounds pretty sweet, right? Who wouldn’t want that? But, wait . . . . where does the money come from? Every country is broke right now it seems. How will they pay for equal salaries for “every person on the planet”, especially when most of them don’t have jobs, apparently. Who decides what “everything a given person or community needs”? Let’s say every person needs shoes. Is everybody in need of $150 shoes, or does everybody get $10 shoes . . . or will there be inequalities in the quality of some of each person’s “needs?” How will they decide all of these things for the whole planet without putting all Americans in ridiculous poverty?
I’m guessing our genius hippie friends haven’t thought it all through, but they’re certainly on a great path . . . right?
Hey, check out their poster. I have an honest question about it below. Seriously, if anyone has any ideas, please comment and let me know ’cause I have a hunch, but I’ll admit cluelessness. Here’s the poster:
So, the angelic looking person there . . . I’m sure they just picked a random, peaceful looking cosmic being, eh? However, my gut has me wondering if this is tied to any kind of old Greek “god” or something like that . . . perhaps one that personifies the debased nature of the occupiers? Again, I don’t know . . . just a hunch I’m curious to research. If any of you know of any type of thing it could be related to, please let me know! Otherwise, I’ll see if I can find something and will update this if I learn anything. Thank you in advance for anything you can tell me . . . or perhaps my hunch is wrong . . . we’ll see.
Also from their site: “What better way to celebrate the passing away of the old regime of death and disorder than by joining together in festival to demand the living wage?”
Hmmmmmm. When, where, how, and by whom has death and disorder happened under a capitalist system as opposed to a socialist system? Socialist systems ALWAYS – I repeat ALWAYS – end in death, disorder, poverty, food rations, etc., etc. Not a path I want to go down. How about you?
They’re doing they’re best to destroy our way of life in the false name of equality. It will never work. Be aware. The only thing to get us out of the mess we’re in is not scrapping American principles, it’s RETURNING to them.
God Bless the USA (but can we send all the commies away to a commie country?)

LANGUAGE WARNING on this episode: We have not been cussing, don’t worry. We do, however, use a couple of clips from Dan Savage, of “It Gets Better”, and his language is atrocious. We could justify it by saying that we want you to hear the left in their exact words so you’ll know how vile they are. However, the truth is, we simply forgot to bleep out the words before getting into the recording. Sorry, but be aware and thanks for your understanding!
You may or may not have already seen this video before, but since the focus has been on the Occupy Movement lately, it needs to be re-visited. This clip is just another example of the flawed mindset of the Occupy hippies who are populating our city streets. I (Dan) was a college student not too long ago and made the choice on my own to attend college, with the full understanding that it would cost me money, adding to my debt. I did not expect anybody to pay for it, nor do I expect anybody to pay for it now because that debt is nobody’s responsibility but my own!
For some reason, the individual in this clip believes that you – yes YOU – should pay for his college debt!! The sad part of it is this guy can’t even explain why he believes what he does. Like a dumb sheep, he is just following the advice and proclamations from the leadership of the Occupy movement that he’s decided to be a part of. He probably can’t explain why he joined it either. So my question to you and to this guy is: what good will a free college education do for if you have no desire to educate yourself and you’re just going to listen to whatever somebody else tells you to do anyways?
What happened to personal responsibility? Did parents just stop teaching our children how to be responsible human beings?
Don’t fall into the same pit that these people are in. If we all learn to take responsibility for our actions, this world will be a much better place and the cost of education would be the least of our worries.

As we all probably know, “May Day” was just the beginning for all the socialist hippies that call themselves occupiers. Check out what’s next:
You can read more about the details on the Occupy Wall Street website.
Stay alert, everyone! Don’t let them take our freedom in the name of freedom of speech, equality, or any other thing they want to pervert!
Follow the link below for Occupy images out of Chicago that you won’t see in the media. Some of these images are graphic so viewer discretion is advised. I believe they speak for themselves.
I’m sure, by now, many more people are awake than were 3 years ago. For those that pay attention and educate themselves, you may be very familiar with the intro I’m about to give. It will be brief because my point is a link with a new video that you must see. The point is Bill Ayers. How well do you know him? If you’re not very familiar with him, here’s a brief nutshell with a couple of links to check out further.
Bill Ayers is a domestic terrorist, having led the “Weather Underground” in the 1960s and ’70s. The Weather Underground was a domestic terrorist group that bombed the NYPD headquarters, the Pentagon, among others during that period. He made outlandish statements making it known that he wanted to kill all rich people. Oh, and he wanted to “bring the revolution home” so he urged kids to kill their parents. After his terrorist days, he went on to never say that he was wrong by any of his previous behavior. He married Bernadine Dohrn, who is just as lovely. They are associated with communist and radical groups and, the last piece I’ll share is that he has worked with, and is supportive of Obama. It seems to me that they’re pretty close, but they try to keep that somewhat quiet. It can be argued that Obama actually started his political career in Ayers’ home.
If you’d like to read more about Ayers, his wife, and his associations, there is an INCREDIBLE site called “Discover the Networks.” Check out some of his info here. Here’s another page from the same website that is a list of radical/socialist influences on Obama . . . what d’ya know! Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn . . . they’re right there! Lastly, you can download a pdf file that is further explanation of Obama’s ties to communists and socialist groups in Chicago – including Ayers and Dohrn. You can dowload it here:
That’s the intro so you’ll have some context of this video I wanted to share. Here is Ayers, visiting the Occupy Wall Street hippie this past Friday. Language Warning! He drops a single F-bomb. The audio is pretty bad, but you can hear him say “Today, I’m going to make a difference. Today, I’m going to end capitalism.”
This is the kind of people Obama surrounds himself with. Worthy of another term? No way. Please, people, be awake and aware.
In looking at the Occupy Wall Street website, I found some things that need to be researched a bit before I write anything about them. However, since the “research” will take a little more time, I did want to go ahead and post a video. I’ll warn you that it is long and, really, should be over . . . . well, it really should never exist. However, the main part of this video is over about halfway through it, about 18 minutes. Things to notice:
- I know I heard some of the occupiers tell the cops (last year) that they were on the cops’ side – that they were fighting for the cops pensions, etc. Sure. I never believed that because there was just as much anti-cop whining. Notice one of the guys going on and on about police brutality. I’m sorry, but I can’t believe that cops are just randomly slamming people heads into the concrete, breaking people’s feet, shooting people, beating them with batons, etc. Maybe these things happen, but what has the occupier done to provoke such measures?
- They claim the NYPD is now “targeting medics”. Really? NYPD is targeting more of their fellow public servants? I’m having a very hard time taking this seriously.
- Then, you can hear one gratuitous “F**k the cops!”
- They claim they barricaded cops inside zuccotti park, with cardboard boxes, and this was “protecting the city of New York from the cops” I never realized that cardboard was an officer’s kryptonite, but the occupy hippies claim to have beaten them and saved the city from their brutality.
And, of course, the most obvious thing also shows what complete dopes these people are, as if it wasn’t already obvious – why, oh why, does the mindless herd repeat every dang phrase that every “speaker” says. I cannot, for the life of me, comprehend this. And when the interaction goes like this, I’m completely astounded at the sheer idiocy of this:
speaker: I’m Josh
crowd: I’m Josh
As I mentioned, there are some things that I want to look into some more, then bring them to your attention, but in the meantime, please enjoy some of the OWS’ finest right here. (it’s the video just under the pic of the 16 year old enduring “police brutality”)
The Blaze.com posted this story, early this morning, regarding Frances Fox Piven (known for the Cloward-Piven concept of collapsing the system by overloading it). She is, obviously, in favor of the protests we’ve seen over the past year. She’s claiming there will be more that will “see action” that “threatens to shut down institutions.”
See what you think, listen to the audio and be aware!
