Did you know that there are pockets of “non-civilization” within our civilized United States? And we host them, and encourage them to continue to be not-civilized. We spend significant federal dollars on maintenance of these pockets of non-civilization. Those pockets of non-civilization are called Indian Reservations, and they are everywhere in the United States. One of the main definitions of civilization is people giving their allegiance to a Nation-State instead of a clan or tribe. Out of guilt for the way the early Americans treated the natives of North America, we continue to support their tribes, when we should be urging them to get civilized, and join America.
If it were up to me, this is what I would do. I would give the descendants of the original inhabitants of North America two choices. First, they could choose to become sovereign nations within the boundaries of their Reservations. Each tribe would be given title to the land on its reservations, and to no other land. If the Cherokee wished to be the Nation of Cherokee, they would have all their reservation land for themselves. The US Treasury would also give the Tribe all the money currently held in trust for them, recognizing that they are fully-capable adult human beings, and should be able to look after themselves and their families without the Big Brother Uncle Sam doling out the money and services. All services currently provided by Uncle Sam (like the Indian Health Service, schools, etc.) would then become the responsibility of the Tribal Government. Within their own sovereign territory, they would be able to have their own police, schools, banks, and public services. They would continue to own and operate any casinos or other retail businesses for themselves, and keep all the profits therefrom for their Tribal members. They would have no future call on the taxpayers of the United States for any goods or services in their own country. And they would have the responsibility to take care of their own people, and would never be able to blame any other entity for their problems.
The second alternative would be for all Indian Tribes to be immediately disbanded, and reservations done away with. All the money currently held in trust by the United States, and all reservation land would be divided up among all tribal members. All Native Americans would become full US Citizens, with no allegiance to any entity other than the United States of America. Old Tribes would simply become social clubs, where tribal members could celebrate their heritage in any legal way they wished. Tribal property like casinos and commercial land would also be divided up among the current owners, and they would become independent businesses, subject to the rules of the area in which they operated. All businesses would be subject to the tax and laws of their respective jurisdictions, as would individuals. Without the tribe to hold their allegiance, Native Americans would be able to become truly civilized.
Do I think this could ever happen? Probably not! But it’s been over 150 years since the Europeans conquered the Natives, and it’s time they surrendered. They just might find it a pretty good deal to become real US Citizens instead of pockets of non-civilization in our very civilized country.
I just couldn’t resist purloining this cartoon from a friend over at Ricochet. The cartoonist (you can just read his name in the lower right corner) is Theodore Seuss Geisel, better known in his later years as Dr. Seuss. Sorry if any of my followers are “triggered” by this overtly racist cartoon. Remember, it is over 100 years old!
I have wondered what might happen to me as a blogger if I just used the notorious “N” Word? Well, I don’t have to. Dr. Seuss did it for me. It is insidious, how the Left requires you to adjust your language to their standards. The first step toward ThoughtCrime.
I found this story on Fox News, about a mixed-race rapper who pulled out of a music festival when she found that the festival was charging white ticket-buyers more than they were charging “people of color”. I had to applaud her good sense, not wanting to be associated with that sort of behavior.
However, my applause were somewhat less enthusiastic when I read the complete article, where the young lady described what she did and why. She seemed to tie herself in verbal knots, trying to avoid calling the situation what it was. Here is a quote from the article-see if you can figure out exactly what she was trying to communicate.
I have family members that would have, under those circumstances, been subjected to something that I would not ever want them to be in … especially not because of anything that I have going on.”
Now, this is how the organizers of the AfroFuture fest described what they were doing by charging whites twice as much as blacks to get into the festival.
AfroFuture explained their policy and rationale for it on their Eventbrite page. Organizers cite “equality” and “equity” in their ticketing, and state their structure “was built to insure that the most marginalized communities (people of color) are provided with an equitable chance at enjoying events in their own community (black Detroit).”
“Affording joy and pleasure is unfortunately still a privilege in our society for POC and we believe everyone should have access to receiving such,” organizers wrote.
So, they created inequality to promote equality? Did they even think about what they were doing? Speaking of tying yourself in verbal knots! It’s just another example of Black Racism. Good for Jillian Graham (Tiny Jag) for calling them out.
The Greatest Country on God’s Green (and getting greener) Earth. I am proud to be a Citizen of the United States of America.
The United States is the most Prosperous nation in the history of Mankind. People who come here from elsewhere know that, if they work and save, they can aspire to be wealthy, and their children will do better than they did.
The United States is the most Free Nation on Earth. Why else would hordes of people from most other parts of the world travel thousands of miles, across oceans and deserts, to come to America? Why are thousands of Africans, South Americans, Europeans, and Middle-Easterners clamoring to come to America?
The United States has the most polyglot, diverse population on Earth. People here in America speak hundreds of languages, and our governmental units, from local to national, accommodate them with ballots, signs, and government forms in so many other languages it boggles the mind.
Despite what detractors say, America has the best, most-advanced medical care system in the world. Our scientists and medical professionals bring to market more new, life-saving drugs and procedures than any other country. Americans earn more Nobel Prizes than any other country. America has non-profit organizations that, with donations from private American individuals, fund vital research on all sorts of genetic and communicable diseases, improving the lives of millions of people, both Americans and foreigners.
The US Military literally protects the World from Tyranny. After World War II, and the Marshall Plan, America rebuilt Europe, and allowed their countries to spend less on their own defense and more on their vaunted social programs. And We Protected Them, and still do. NATO is still predominantly funded by the United States of America. Would Germany be quite so prosperous today if it had had to fund its own defense? Probably not.
And the US Military is the largest benefactor in the world, when natural disasters happen. Any time there’s a bad earthquake, a tsunami, a devastating hurricane or tropical storm, the US is there, with food, infrastructure, and other supplies to help the suffering. Some people like to say that they don’t want America to be the world’s policeman, but just hear them scream if the US is not there within 24 hours after a disaster somewhere.
Americans are the most generous people on Earth. Americans give a higher percentage of their incomes to various charitable organizations than anyone else. So-called “social democracies” nurture Government as the source of all good works. In America, it’s the People who do most good works. Disasters here bring out the donors in minutes-the Red Cross and United Way rake in the donations when there is an appeal. Americans volunteer more of their precious time too, working at soup kitchens, shelters, and offices to help their fellows. Personally, I saw how generous Americans are. One of my Ricochet friends had some very bad family problems, and was in need of support. I started a GoFundMe campaign, and within a few days, our Ricochet Members donated over $7.500.00.
I get very angry when I hear Americans tear down their country, calling it “racist, sexist, greedy, and mean”. There are many Americans who grew up in the relative lap of luxury, and now, from their ivory towers and suburban homes, denigrate America. I believe every single American should appreciate how fortunate they are to be an American.
Speaking of ivory towers, most of the worst America-haters are found on US college campuses these days. Instead of being seats of learning and exploration, they have become nests of vipers, despising and spreading lies about their own country, the country that allows them this kind of free speech (become mere liberal propaganda). There is, however, an antidote to the modern “progressive” college campus. That antidote is Hillsdale College, in Hillsdale, Michigan. Named one of the best private colleges in the United States, Hillsdale accepts not one penny of government money in any form, and they have been Pursuing Truth and Defending Liberty since 1844. RushBabe and Hubby are endowing a music scholarship at Hillsdale, and we urge followers and friends to learn about the school, and support it. Here’s a production of the Hillsdale music department, just for Independence Day. I have to admit that, while watching this, tears came to my eyes. Maybe it’s the Music. Maybe it’s the Truth.
Next, here’s a taste of my favorite march for Independence Day. The Stars and Stripes Forever, played by the President’s Own Marine Band.
And here are some of the comments on that performance. Get a feeling for how people in other countries feel about America.
Man, that’s amazing. I’m from Brazil and it’s impossible to be a patriot here. I wish there was something like this here. But this… this is awesome. Glad many of you enjoy it. The 284 dislikes are from heartless bitches. God bless America!
My deepest respects and regards to the culture and values of the american people, my neighbours. I am from a city called Monterrey in north east Mexico and I have nothing but praise for what the US has done in a short amount of time as an independent nation. Hopefully in the near future we can solve our differences and bring our nations to the level of mutual respect and dignity. Only then we can make this part of the world the most prosperous, peaceful and free, but In the meantime i’ll still enjoy what your culture has to offer.
So, on this Independence Day, cheer for America! It deserves all our praise. And fireworks.
God Bless America. God Bless our President Donald Trump.
On my dashboard, the back-end of Calling-all-RushBabes today there is a link that says “Celebrate Pride Month with WordPress”.
Needless to say, I won’t be clicking on that particular link!
For some reason, I can’t imagine anyone being proud of being a pervert (homosexual); essentially a mistake of nature. And no, the homosexual lobby will never get me to admit that homosexuality is not a perversion of Nature, a denial of what humans should be. Humans are designed by their Maker to reproduce, one man and one woman joining to produce little descendants, to carry the Human Race forward into the future. The Lavender Mafia would try to make normal, heterosexual people, admit that they are the wrong to think of themselves as normal. Try as they might, the Homosexual Lobby will not succeed in making their behavior normal, or “defining deviancy down”.
This site will never, ever celebrate “Perverts Month”.
Islam Is Evil. Pure Evil.
Hundreds of innocent worshippers all over Sri Lanka were murdered at their Easter services, by massive bombs placed among the pews at their churches. The death toll is hundreds, and climbing.
This is your “peaceful” religion. This is heartbreaking. This is what should inspire justified outrage among Christians and Jews everywhere.
