Useful Idiot's Indeed...

It pains me a little bit to write this as I used to be a "useful idiot."

Sarah Palin recently tweeted this article and the Huffington Post and many other Liberal outlets are going crazy about it. Here's an excerpt:

"When Adolf Hitler was building up the Nazi movement in the 1920s, leading up to his taking power in the 1930s, he deliberately sought to activate people who did not normally pay much attention to politics. Such people were a valuable addition to his political base, since they were particularly susceptible to Hitler's rhetoric and had far less basis for questioning his assumptions or his conclusions.

"Useful idiots" was the term supposedly coined by V.I. Lenin to describe similarly unthinking supporters of his dictatorship in the Soviet Union. "

Read the full column here:

Never mind the compelling parallels that Mr. Sowell brings up. Never mind that the thesis of this column is really about "useful idiots" He mentioned Hitler and Obama in the same column so everything else MUST be irrelevant. If we are honest about it, there are way too many on the right and left of the political spectrum in our country that are indeed "useful idiots."

It's time for us to wake up. Don't be distracted as news outlets mine for sound bytes to make the other side look bad. I believe that most of us believe in the concept of this great land. Most of us believe in, and agree with the Constitution. We must once again hold all of our elected officials accountable for what they do. I have often said to people, "don't vote Democrat simply because you are black or poor and don't vote Republican simply because you are a Christian." These are labels that I fear we hide behind too often. This gives us an excuse to not become enlightened and engaged in the political process.

Politicians of our day have used soaring rhetoric and hot-button issues to keep everyone distracted from the "little" things they are doing under the surface. Once again, this is on BOTH sides of the isle. Some are satisfied as long as a politician says they are pro-life, or advocates for the traditional definition of marriage. Others are immediately satisfied when a politician promises to be an advocate for "Main Street" and the "little guy."

These are VERY important but I challenge all Americans to take the time look very deeply into what is happening in our country. Then look very deeply into yourself and develop an educated defense for where you stand politically. Please don't be ANYONE'S "useful idiot."

Happy Father's (Baby's Momma's) Day???

Happy Father’s day to my real FATHERS! Single mothers, I deeply sympathize with your situation and I wish that things could have worked out between you and your baby’s father. THIS MAY HURT A LITTLE BIT, but I promise that my aim is to help.

I’d like to talk to two groups of people if I may…



Man up and make sure you are handling your responsibilities. Being a father means way more than sending that check on time or providing for the financial needs of your family. Even if you are separated from the baby’s mother, you need to be a presence in the life of your children. They need your presence, your affirmation, your attention and most of all, your love. Your women need your protection, passion and your presence. Your woman is a gift. She is a good thing that deserves to be cherished. You will regret mistreating her and your children one day. BROKEN FAMILIES ARE CRIPPLING OUR COMMUNITIES!!! If you are not ready to be committed to her or the results of your ill conceived intimacy, for the sake of my daughter and everyone that is going to have to bear the burden of your immaturity, KEEP IT IN YOUR PANTS!!! Understand that FAMILIES are the single most beautiful institutions on this planet.


Please on this father’s day, let’s stop with the “Happy Father’s Day to the mother’s who are doing both jobsmadness. When you celebrate your single motherhood in this way, you are sending a message that perhaps fathers aren’t really that essential.


I’m sure that you are a strong mother and you no doubt are doing the very best you can with the hand you’ve been dealt. HOWEVER you are NOT a father and to suggest that you are doing both jobs is setting a dangerous example for your children and is an attack on the beauty and the sanctity of the institution known as THE FAMILY. If you find yourself in a bad situation it is not all your baby’s daddy’s fault that you and your child are there. THAT NO GOOD JIVE TURKEY that bedded you probably didn’t do so with you at gun point. We don’t like to talk about this but it is the truth.


My people, if we can do this, if we can be honest with ourselves, we can begin to mend our families. True intimacy requires commitment. Nobody should be that close to you if they are not prepared to marry you PERIOD.

Folks, we’ve got a generation of boys AND GIRLS that are being raised with absolutely no concept of how important traditional families are to any society. If your family is not together—if the only examples you have are broken families, I implore you to take my word for it and get your cues from some families that have made it. Families are a beautiful thing. WE MUST MAKE FAMILIES COOL AGAIN.

This type of talk used to be commonplace for families. If you are one of these new age people that think that traditional families are a thing of the past, then these words aren't for you. However, if you still believe in the magic and the beauty of the family, It is time for us to re-teach these concepts to our youth... and to ourselves.

Happy Father's Day
