What kids learn in school nowdays isn’t like you think

I didn’t know this stuff, but I want to know

Religious beliefs, sex education, politics, the Constitution of The United States, Civil Rights, gun rights, Presidential facts, Indoctrination, etc . . . Basically all the moral things is what is changin’.  Hey, it’s up to you to verify these events, but I thought they might be interesting.  I found them on a search for “Common Core”  I ran out of time again, so I’m quitting here.  If you have any links you wish me to add send them to me!

America is like a big CLUB

CoubertSelfPortait

I didn’t know this stuff, but I want to know

A BIT OF HISTORY ON GROWING UP AMERICAN

My relatives were living in the Americas before it was the United States of America. (NOTE: I do not believe that makes me better than a recent American!  And . . . I never knew those old people, I’m not old enough) My parents were children of immigrants, or their parents were, or their parents were, so on and so forth. Other relatives were native Americans. My father and mother paid taxes to the government, so did I.  And they taught me to be an American, as did my teachers in school.

Every morning before starting classes in grade school, we said the Pledge To The Allegiance, and sung a patriotic song, and said a prayer. We put our hand over our heart in respect to the American flag, and America.  In fact, the American FLAG was standing in the corner at the front of the room in each and every classroom, and stayed there day and night.  We could see it all day long in class!  We bowed our heads when we prayed in respect to our God and Country.  We learned Respect and Reverence for this country.

(NOTE: I do not believe that everyone should be required to have a religion, as that is illegal in the United States Of America anyway)  Worship as you like, or don’t worship at all.  If you’re American you are free to choose. You just don’t have the right to make other people in America worship the way you want them to.

Anyway, whenever we said the Pledge of Allegiance, at the end of the Pledge, we would say “Indivisible, under God”, our little hearts swelled with pride, sometimes bringing a tear to our eye.  We were taught many other values, but being an American we learned what all that meant.

I say all this not because I think that it’s my way or the highway.  I am only describing a process and patriotism that people who have lived here for long years experienced.  A description so to speak.  Each country I guess has a similar process that they teach children, but what we teach children here is unique.  But here in America we are no different.  We think we are special in many respects.

YOU CAN DIE TO KEEP YOUR COUNTRY

Our ancestors fought and died by the thousands to even have this country.  And many more have died fighting to keep it. I am lucky to even be here, because my father could have been one of those that did not come back after World War Two.  So please keep this in mind when you read what I believe is the opinion of most Americans.  Those of you who came from countries that you got chased out of understand the implications of all this.

AMERICA, THE LOYALTY CLUB

You get certain good things from joining the American Club, although there are some requirements.  You swear loyalty to the flag and the Constitution of The United States of America, The Constitution of The United States (for which it stands), and you pay dues in the form of taxes.  You gotta love America and be loyal to what it stands for.  (I’m big on the loyalty)

You can’t just be a foreign person that comes to The United States and sit your hind end down on the land in this country, and say you’re here, you hate America, give me some stuff I deserve it, or I’m needy, or poor me, or I can’t help it, or whatever excuse there is for not going through the membership process, and the loyalty part.  Presently, (aside from the absence of a lie detector test) there is no measure of loyalty except the willingness to swear to it. There is a line of thought that says you ought to take a lie detector test to prove it.  I tend to agree.

All you have to do is say it.  Some people take an oath like that seriously, and others do not.  The ones that don’t should be slapped roundly, because not meaning it is a lie, and that makes you a liar.

If you don’t do these things then you can’t be part of the club.  (NOTE: the lines are attempting to be blurred here too and most Americans don’t approve of that)  All the many people demanding rights when they are not even members of the club enrages many. They don’t have those rights because they have not met the requirements for being a real American citizen. There is even an ongoing dispute as to what a natural born American is.  Fancy that.

JOINING THE CLUB OF AMERICA

If you are not a member please apply to be one, then fulfill the requirements of membership, and then you’re an American.  If not, then you’re not an American, and you’re not a member, and you don’t have the rights of membership. Go home if you don’t want to join and be loyal and contribute.  Being an American is not just all about your rights, it’s about everyone.

It’s against the law, for you to have American rights and not be an American.  Especially using money from the taxes that other Americans pay that are paid by everyone that has citizenship to waste.  That’s one of the requirements.  (although nowdays I’m not so sure because the lines are being blurred, and extremely so)

And that is why those Americans that see this happening get extremely angry.  They are not bigots.  They are not prejudiced except to the point that what’s good for the goose is also good for the gander.  THEY have to follow these rules.  And they believe anyone else that comes here should too.  It is an injustice to do otherwise.  It is not fair to those Americans that are following the rules of the club.

THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE IN AMERICA
And P.S.  Most everyone here mainly speaks English so learn a second language (the one most people understand here).  When you drive a car the roadsigns are in English.  How the heck would you read them?  Even if you memorized each and every one, when they put up roadsigns with emergency cautions for emergencies, those are quite frequently different than the regular ones.  Note, Amber Alerts?

And all policemen don’t know any other language than English.  You see the problem here.

It might take a while, you might not do it perfectly, but people, on the whole appreciate just the fact that you are making an effort.  Who gives a poop whether you have an accent?  The point is that you are trying to communicate. People appreciate that. Then most everyone will understand what you’re trying to say.  And it won’t be so difficult for you to get around. The down side of not doing this is that people get a puzzled look on their faces and shrug a lot and not understand anything that comes out of your mouth.  (what if you need to find a bathroom?)

We even teach our children not to ask and not point for what they want.  We require them to speak instead of pointing.

Free speech is about communication, not acting like an untrained child. Of course you are free to do that, after all it’s America.

If you learn English then you also can also understand who and what you are voting for and not have to reley on what someone else tells you about the people running for office. Sure Americans come from all kinds of countries, we all know that.  We understand how difficult it is to learn English, especially for the elderly. But get with the program and people will start to understand your point of view.

YOU ACTUALLY LEARN TO BE AN AMERICAN, AND TO BE FREE

If they really are an American, each person actually learns how to be an American at some point or another, whether you grew up with it, or just recently came to it.  If you come here and bring your UN American ways of living and thinking, then you get the comparable results to what you used to live. You want to be a Communist, Marxist, Socialist, then leave it where you came from.  Americans never did want all that control over their lives, and still don’t.  If you basically think that people need to be controlled by some other source that knows better what is right in this world, then that thinking does not fit here in America.

Being free doesn’t mean free to take what doesn’t belong to you.  It doesn’t mean free lunch, free government benefits, free housing, free money.  (Even though it has been temporarily made that way in some ways, and which other people Americans end up paying for.)  It doesn’t mean free to hurt other people. It doesn’t mean free to take whatever is handed to you and then be disloyal to everything that America stands for.  For sure it doesn’t mean burning the American Flag.

America would not be special if anybody could just hop on over here and take what they want, get what they want, American or not. And the requirements are not sacrificial.  The requirements are not strenuous.  They are not hard to do.

FREE means free to speak, free to live without someone spying on you and taking your stuff.  Free to make yourself happy and be whatever you decide to be. Free to practise whatever faith you want. Free to own your own part of land and home and place to raise your children. You don’t get that when a government controls all aspects of your life.  You don’t get that from other governments because the ability to make decisions has been taken away from you and given to the government.

WHAT ANGERS AMERICANS

Most Americans are angered when someone that is not an American Citizen comes here for an education or to work and then proceed to try to influence everyone else to their way, the way they lived or do live in whatever other country. Or, like several that I have met, baldly bad mouth anything American while they benefit from what is in America.  Most Americans would say without hesitating:

“If you don’t like what we are here.  If you don’t like America or Americans. Then go back to your own country.”

In other words:  If you aren’t a member of the club then you don’t deserve to get the perks. Especially since the perks are paid for by other Americans. Don’t call it government money because it came from taxpayers.  And they worked for that money.  That’s why they get so upset when it’s wasted.

THE SACRIFICES THAT CONTAIN THE LOYALTY

And additionally, Americans believe that what we enjoy was paid for with great sacrifice and payment and again, LOYALTY.
If you act as if you hate America, Americans, and the things that it stands for, then people wonder why you decided to become and American in the first place.

There must have been SOME reason that you thought it a good idea to be American.  If you are a new American or old.  Why is it that you love being American?  Why did you decide to be an American? Why did you leave somewhere else to be an American?  What can you do as an American that you could not do where you lived before? If you are an American, would you move to another country and change your nationality?

There are still people alive today that lived this

HITLER IS NOT ALONE

The first several years of Hitlers propaganda was to get all people to rally around HIM.  Then it was about the hating and mistrusting Jews and undesireables. Ultimately, he took over the government and suspended the German Constitution.

The Jews (and other undesireables) were an endless number of people that he could work to death without having to pay or even feed. They went to the work camps to be worked to death for nothing.  But the first thing he did was find out where everyone that was armed was AT, where the wealth was AT, where those things he wanted that furthered his power were AT.

Then after he found out where the armed people were, he sent SS (his secret service) out to disarm everyone that he knew had guns that did not AGREE with him.  The ones that agreed with him were the ones he sent to get the guns. After he had their guns they had no way to protect themselves from being taken, killed, or whatever Hitler wished to do with them.

When Hitler became dictator of Germany, he had absolute control of all military, all decisions, of everything that the country did.  Where all the money was spent, etc . . . He could determine who lived and who died. He could determine who went to jail.

He did not like people who could protect themselves.  He especially did not like Britain. Anybody that he didn’t like was made out to be, and projected as radical, against the german people, and dangerous. He even went so far as to burn the books that spoke of freedom and the people themselves wanted.

But THIS is a new time.  If Hitler would have had the internet, facebook, news programs, networks, he could have hired, or put in place “Internet gurus, public relations, press secretaries, media influence. He actually did use media influence and propaganda, but not exactly as in modern times.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW HE DID IT, HERE ARE SOME GOOD LINKS TO THE HISTORY OF HIS DICTATORSHIP

I’d like to post a bunch of links to fact checking websites where you can compare whether or what is true or not.

I quit when I got tired of looking.  As always, you can contact me if you find a good link to add to this list.

300 questions about the United States

CoubertSelfPortait

I didn’t know this stuff, but I want to know

WHY DON’T WE KNOW MORE ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT IN THE UNITED STATES?  Why can’t The United States government make a magazine, flyer, letter, or something to send to the American citizen that tells them everything that it is possible to tell them.  Such as, the budget, expenditures, bills and laws that have been passed, Presidential orders, current events, what stuff they give to other countries, what stuff they SELL to other countries, and so on and so forth.  Why is it that after working hard all my life, I only find out about any and all of it when I get the time to spend hours researching.  Who has that kind of time?  People work for a living.

This list is very long but will be added to over and over, because I have many questions.  I will add clickable links to anything I find on the web that might answer these questions for your convenience.  And I will use a lot of it to post articles on.  Much of the information that I will post is what I believe has so many people alarmed about their freedoms that they thought were guaranteed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights that founded this country.  These are my many questions about The United States Of America that I think everyone needs to know the answers to if they expect to retain any semblance of their freedoms.  Like I said . . . I didn’t KNOW this stuff! I will be changing this page frequently and linking the questions to the pages that I create.  Don’t be alarmed if the page changes.

As I link these questions to their pages, I’ll put them at the top of the list.

NOTE: Mostly I just Google the term and post the links.  If you have any links you want me to add that pertain to the subject just let me know.
