“Gone with the Wind” are the days when America was great


Recommended Posts

"Gone with the Wind" are the days when America was great. Of course, Native Americans knew that North America was great prior to the Pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock. In fact, they only took from the land that which was necessary to sustain life because they understood that “Nature” was not an “endless-plentiful-resource”. There is a time to plant and a time to harvest. Moreover, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:” (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Know, America, and “Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth:” (Luke 12:15). Hence, most things that are worthwhile and “eternal” cannot be achieved utilizing the barrel of guns! This is why Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, warned Peter about the wisdom of not using the sword (GUNS): (Matthew 26: 52).

 

Alabama Republican Senatorial Candidate Judge Roy Moore emphatically declared that the last time America was great was during slavery! Know full well, America, chattel-slavery has truly “Gone with the Wind".  However, there are still some Christian White Evangelicals who still desire "White Privilege": Something for nothing; and when you desire something for nothing, invariably, you get nothing.  And, nothing from nothing leaves nothing. “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of the birds and four footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, that their bodies might be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen: and Sex-“pleasures of the flesh”: (PMS). Hence, President Trump has emphatically declared that he will return America to its “past” greatness by reestablishing a dictatorial “White-Privilege-Oriented-Male-Dominated-Culture” which existed in all of its vulgarity prior to 1964-1965: (Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act). The Trump Campaign Slogan: “Make America Great Again” was about White male dominance and minority and female “status-subjugation” utilizing power, money, and sex as instruments of discrimination (PMS)!

 

Without a doubt, America was great in 1776 when the “Constitutional Framers” had the spiritual-moral-courage at the Continental Congress in Philadelphia to write the Preamble to the U. S. Constitution and the Articles of the Constitution to give moral notice to Great Britain that it was no longer in charge and its colonial authority was "Gone with the Wind"! Unfortunately, since that time, America has a checkered “White-Privilege-Oriented-History” of human usury. In fact, America used or took advantage of  Native Americans, African-slaves, and other European Ethnic Immigrants while declaring, behold, look at what we (Whites) made out of an undeveloped-savage-land and the civilization we (White Males) carved out of the wilderness. Certainly the “abundance” of America was present prior to the arrival of Whites on these shining shores. The Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock and then commenced throwing rocks at every other racial-ethnic-group that came to these shining shores by creating a “totem-pole-cast-class-system” of White Male Privilege.

 

America has a spiritual Presidential leadership crisis of epidemic proportions. Not to mention, family breakdown, the opioid addiction crisis, and the spiritual-moral-deterioration of civil standards of human decency. The leadership structure (White-Males and Christian Right Evangelicals) are blaming everyone, but themselves, and they are in “CHARGE”!  Moreover, it has become commonplace for Americans to be besieged by “MAD” mass gun violence. Americans, we should spiritually remind ourselves that “Power corrupts, and absolute power, corrupts absolutely”. Great nations decline and have fallen because of internal spiritual-moral-decay.  Corrupt-leadership-mentalities in high places are always the more serious problem. America can “manage/handle” external physical forces/enemies. “Going along to get-a-long in order to advance personal agendas, rather than nation-state-building agendas, is America’s “critical” problem”. Eventually, failed leadership asks this question: What Happened?  The answer lies in this scripture, because we cease to glorify, honor, and praise God from whom all blessings flow: “Let us, therefore, come boldly unto the throne of Grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4: 16). “Gone with the Wind” are the days when God “spiritually” lead America in time of need! The Trumps of America now lead with the battle-cry: “Money-Honey” while singing the money song: “get the money; get the money, any kind of way get the money”.

Did you make this up or copy and paste it from other people's thinking?  What made america great from 1776 to January of 1791 was the notion everyone was created equally alive as biologically here. That changed when the first 10 amendments were added to the 16 month old ratified Constitution that went from defending personal liberty to protecting human rights to ignore natural balancing..

You can only use the past to direct the future and it is ironic how the past ends now and the future begins here as this moment never kinetically reproduces what happened so far again as it happened already.

 

You have no practical understanding of navigating life restricted to simultaneously alive as actually the only way lifetimes exist suspended at living spontaneously apart in order of conception until extinction of the species your body is a kin in.

Sounds like Benson is longing for the days of Southern romance supported against the backdrop of plantation slavery.  I always knew Benson was the real racist on this board.

Thanks Billy!!

Clinton caused 9-11

A few people here on Pardon My English seem to under the delusion that Bill Clinton did not cause the attacks of September 11th. So I’ll set them straight.

It was said by former Clinton advisor Dick Morris that, Clinton was an utter and total failure. The statement refers to Clinton's unwillingness to remedy the problem of international terrorism. Much has been said and written about Clinton, but facts are facts, and the facts show that Clinton did not protect America from terrorism, in particular Usama bin Laden. Usama bin Laden heads the terrorist group Al Qaeda. Bin Laden explained the purpose of the group in an interview in May of 1997, he declared a jihad, a holy war, against the United States government because it is, according to him, unjust, criminal, and tyrannical.

Clinton was made painfully aware of the danger this group provided, but he did little to nothing to stifle its threats. Al Qaeda was busy during the Clinton Administration; the group took responsibility for the attack on the World Trade Center in 1993, the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole, the attacks on two U.S. military barracks in Saudi Arabia, the bombing of two U.S. Embassies in Africa, and the attacks on United States soldiers in Somalia. Throughout these attacks, Clinton did nothing to protect America or her citizens; in fact he sabotaged America's ability to protect herself. Clinton incapacitated America by weakening the counter-terror organizations, overusing diplomacy, and simply ignoring the problem of international terrorism.

Weakening the Counter-terror Organizations

Clinton disrupted the counter-terror organizations' ability to protect America on many different levels. It seems he kept a few words handy when dealing with armed forces, Central Intelligence Agency, and Federal Bureau of Investigation: under-funding, over-politicization, and compromise.

Clinton dangerously weakened the armed forces. He kept them under-funded and over-politicized at the same time as spreading them thinner than any president had ever done before. To keep his special interest constituents happy, Clinton made sure the armed forces, the Army in particular, was bogged down with political correctness. Clinton instituted a stress card system in boot camp. In this system, if a recruit was stressed he or she could flash a yellow card to the Drill Sergeant and would be exempt from the exercise. How will a soldier be able to stop terrorists if they can wimp through boot camp? President Clinton lowered the level of Special Forces training so that more women could join.

At the same time as weakening the Army, he spread it out all over the world. He used the Army in South America, the Near East, Africa, the Middle East, and Oceania. His use, or rather misuse, of the armed forces was both dangerous and ineffective.

The Central Intelligence Agency suffered greatly under Clinton. According to CIA agent Robert Baer, by the mid-1990s, the CIAÕs headquarters throughout the world lacked the officers to go after the rising epidemic of radical Islam. Clinton often ignored the CIAÕs advice, he considered them irrelevant. The CIA warned Clinton that without proper funding, it could not properly supply the White House with current, honest intelligence. Clinton responded by disregarding the CIAÕs request for more funding.

It was the Federal Bureau of Investigation agent John O'Neil that first connected Usama bin Laden to the rise in Islamic radicalism, specifically the terrorist actions of Muslims. O'Neil told officials in 1997,

When bin Laden, speaks we have to listen. They have the capability to strike American soil any time they choose.

Then on September 10, 2001, O'Neil said,

It's going to happen. And it looks like something big is brewing.

O’Neil made a career of tracking bin Laden and predicting his actions, he informed the White House that bin Laden is the center of activity and that he controls the actions of millions of followers. The White House, starting with President George H. W. Bush and peaking with President Clinton, neglected his warnings.

The one time President Clinton did use military might, it was hastily done. Clinton had ordered the bombing of Afghanistan and Sudan to take attention away from the Lewinsky scandal. O'Neil, and a few others in a tight circle of national security insiders, knew Clinton was working with intelligence that was more than a year old. O'Neil felt that if Clinton was going to use the information, he should have used it when he got it, not when it was politically helpful. Clinton did not even notify the Director the FBI of the attacks. Clinton also didn't notify the FBI or CIA agents that were in those countries; they were essentially left in two heavily bin Laden sympathizing nations wearing FBI coats. A total of 75 Tomahawk Cruise Missiles were fired, Afghani terrorist camps and a Sudanese VX manufacturing plant were the targets. The VX plant turned out to be an aspirin plant, the only casualties were Sudanese civilians. And time proved Clinton wrong with his attacks in Afghanistan. All the terrorist training camps survived well enough to train Mohammed Atta, the suspected ring-leader of the high-jackers on September 11th.

The Over Use of Diplomacy

It was President Teddy Roosevelt that said, Walk soft but carry a big stick. Clinton never failed to walk softly, but his destruction of the armed forces weakened his big stick. Clinton was weary of using the full force of military might, this is shown by his complete inaction after each terrorist attack. This compounded with his ineffectiveness at diplomacy made him useless at protecting America.

After the bombing of Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 Americans, the Saudi government arrested eleven suspects. Clinton tried to get the Saudi government to allow America to try the suspects. He failed. Agent OÕNeil contacted former President Bush, and together they were only able to witness an interview of the suspects.

To prove his complete lack of caring, Clinton froze all of bin Laden's assets. He did this as a last-ditch effort to prove he did something. Clinton notified Congress of his freezing of bin Laden's assets in August of 1998, three years later bin Laden was still capable of killing thousands of American citizens on American soil. Clinton failed to realize that bin Laden's power doesn't come from assets, it comes from rhetoric.

Dick Morris explains Clinton as having paralysis by analysis. According to him, Clinton sees everything as a complex problem, where others would simply see it as a problem that can be fixed with swift military action. Morris had this to say about Clinton:
 

Beyond Clinton's reluctance to engage the military, another factor was at play here: Bill Clinton was a one-thing-at-a-time president.

It was this indecision and inaction that caused the September 11th attacks. Clinton should have engaged the military with an all out assault on bin Laden, his terrorist camps, and all nations that harbored those camps.

Clinton Simply Ignored the Problem of International Terrorism

Bin Laden claimed responsibility for six terrorist attacks on Americans during Clinton's years as president; as Morris writes, All our terrorist problems were born during the Clinton years. After the six attacks, a total of 75 missiles were launched, no troops were deployed, and no extra covert agents were deployed.

In 1993, American soldiers were involved in what has become named the Black Hawk Down Incident. In a routine operation, U.S. soldiers were to detain key Somali figures. The soldiers came under heavy fire and were unable to adequately protect themselves because of a White House order to only use light weaponry. In that operation, 18 American soldiers were killed. Bin Laden claimed responsibility for the attacks. President Clinton responded by showing his attitude toward terrorism, he gave in to bin Laden and removed all troops from Somalia.

After the attacks on the U.S.S. Cole, the Khobar Towers, and the World Trade Center, Clinton did nothing of importance. Bin Laden was basically told that he could kill Americans with no repercussions. It was this message that Clinton showed that allowed bin Laden to orchestrate the attacks of September 11th. Also, when the Sudanese government got tired of protecting bin Laden, they offered to give him to Clinton, but Clinton refused. Rumor has it that this occurred two other times with the same result; however, this can not be proven because when people learn of devastating information about Clinton, they tend not to survive.

On February 26, 1993, America and Clinton Administration realized the full scope of bin Laden's abilities. On that morning, Ramzi Yousef and a few others parked an explosives-ridden van in the below-ground garage of the World Trade Center. When the bomb went off six Americans were killed and over one thousand were injured. This attack was the first of its kind seen on American soil, it should have awakened the Clinton Administration, but it didn't.

Conclusion

No man caused the attacks of September 11th more than bin Laden himself, but it was President Clinton that allowed those attacks to happen. Bill Clinton systematically turned the counter-terror organizations to a politically correct automaton of his pacifistic, anti-military beliefs. It is this attitude of his that allowed bin Laden to kill almost 3,000 Americans in one day. Clinton also relied too heavily on diplomacy when military intervention would have been safer, more methodical, and more complete. Finally, Clinton disregarded the warnings of the CIA and the FBI. He continued his pattern of ignoring America's best interest by refusing to imprison bin Laden. It was Clinton that allowed the tragedy to happen, and now he has the death of 3,000 Americans on his conscience.

From Bill Clintons autobiography "My LIfe"

 

Iraq - low on the danger list

One of My Life's most arresting passages describes the handover meeting Clinton had with his successor in December 2000. George Bush reckoned the biggest security issues he would face would be national missile defence and Iraq. "I told him that, based on the last eight years, I thought his biggest security problems, in order, would be Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida; the absence of peace in the Middle East; the standoff between nuclear powers India and Pakistan, and the ties of the Pakistanis to the Taliban and al-Qaida; North Korea; and then Iraq."

 

Besides advertising his own prescience, Clinton seems to be making a point - that Iraq was fairly low, fifth, on the list of priorities, and that, by implication, his successor went on to slay the wrong dragon.

 

Clinton reckons the danger list he had given Bush still remains the most accurate. "In terms of their own ability to act against us or the Israelis, I always felt that al-Qaida and bin Laden were a much bigger threat and that the Middle East was a bigger problem, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, because it fed all this other stuff."

 

In his view, Iraq was worth inspecting for WMD, but the United Nations was the way to get the job done. "My view was that we shouldn't attack until the UN inspectors are finished and they can say, 'He [Saddam] did or did not comply.'" For that reason, and to help Blair, Clinton started working the phones, lobbying the leaders of Mexico and Chile to vote for the famous second UN resolution on Iraq - because it would have given Hans Blix and his team a few more weeks and might have got "America to defer military action".

 

Clinton's wariness of US engagement in Iraq had another source. "I worried we'd be underdeployed in Afghanistan - and might make the same mistake as we made in the 1980s when the US walked away after the Soviets left."

 

But don't Republicans keep saying that toppling Saddam was Clinton policy too? "Our policy had been, since 1998, regime change, but our policy toward Castro had been regime change, too, and we hadn't invaded Cuba! There is more than one way to pursue that objective."

 

 

 

AFTER ALL THE LOUD WARNINGS.....

 

Here, in stark contrast, is part of the Bush-Cheney anti-terrorism record before September 11, 2001:

-- Backed off Clinton administration's anti-terrorism efforts.

-- Shelved the Hart-Rudman report.

-- Appointed new anti-terrorism task force under Dick Cheney. Group did not even meet before 9/11.

-- Called for cuts in anti-terrorism efforts by the Department of Defense.

-- Gave no priority to anti-terrorism efforts by Justice Department.

-- Ignored warnings from Louis Freeh, George Tenant, Paul Bremer, and Richard Clarke about the urgency of terrorist threats.

-- Halted Predator drone tracking of Osama bin Laden.

-- Did nothing in wake of August 6 C.I.A. report to president saying Al Qaeda attack by hijack of an airliner almost certain.

-- Bush - knowing about the terrorists' plans to attack in America, warned that terrorists were in flight schools in the US - took a four week vacation.

-- By failing to order any coordination of intelligence data, missed opportunity to stop the 9/11 plot as Clinton-Gore had stopped the millennium plots.

-- Blamed President Clinton for 9/11.

Now, many Americans like the OP, can't even compete with 6 year old Asians. 

that's because your red states spend no money on educating their people

This country has always been great at some things, less great at others, and no no way great at others.

 

There is always room for improvement. And Trump is too venial and clueless to improve nearly every one of them.

 

His focus is to make America great for Donald J Trump and his family, and that is about it. Those who voted for him are dimwits, and that is becoming increasingly clear.

 

He recently stated that he thinks that Democrats who refused to stand up during his SOTU speech are TRAITORS.  

 

Again, refusal to stand and clap is TREACHERY. How effing stupid is that?

And him applauding himself during the speech like a trained seal was just another sign that he is moronic.
