Reparations PAID IN FULL


Most of the Democratic candidates are now pushing for ‘reparations.’ They must know it’s all ludicrous, impractical, and unfair, but it’s another way to divide the country.

Reparations were paid in blood when over 600,000 men died fighting the Civil War. America has already righted the wrong that was slavery.

The reparation talk isn’t really what it seems, though. It’s simply about the Socialist Democrats seizing on any issue that will raise our taxes while making more people dependent on government.

They don’t want us coming together. We are already a divided nation and reparations will only widen the gulf. Our divided nation is already fighting a second civil war, albeit it cold one. We don’t need to turn it into a hot one.

Fractured America

By Ben Garrison

Earlier this week I was on the Jesse Lee Peterson show out of LA.

It was a short segment early in the morning and we briefly discussed the NFL kneelers. I spoke about how they offended the fans, the veterans, and US history in general. I pointed out that black Americans have just as much stake and heritage in this country as anyone else. The first person to die in the Revolutionary War was Crispus Attucks, a black man. There were black Minute Men. I mentioned Andrew Jackson and the black battalion that was vital in defeating the the British in the Battle of New Orleans.

Peterson had one call for me—a woman who angrily denounced Andrew Jackson and how those slaves were forced to fight. I was taken aback by this, because those men were heroes and veterans to be honored regardless of slavery. Shamefully, some of those men did not get their freedom, but it does not take away from the fact that they put their lives on the line for their country. I might have added that nearly 600,000 ‘privileged’ white men died in the Civil War to end slavery.

The kneelers seem to have forgotten that.

Increasingly our country is divided. Civility is being replaced by name calling–and even violence. People want others with whom they disagree to lose their jobs. Accusations of sexual impropriety are widespread. Censorship is being implemented by the tech left. Rational debate is replaced by name calling and fear. Racial hatred is very real and always has been, but it seems worse nowadays—and our first ‘black’ president, Obama, actually set back race relations. Too many people now hate our country, our history and our culture. Continue reading at grrrgraphics.com.

 

Mending a Fractured America

Congressman Ted Yoho’s Memorial Day Message: Honoring Our Fallen Heroes

Yoho - Memorial Day Remember
Dear Friends,

On Monday we remember all American military personnel who died in defense of our great nation.  What began in 1868 as a day to remember the countless soldiers who died during our bloody Civil War, Memorial Day grew to encompass every conflict where Americans have served and died.

The brave souls, the citizen soldiers that filled the ranks of our armed forces and who gave their last full measure of devotion to our country, are more than deserving of a single day of solemn remembrance.

While this is a federal holiday, let us not forget the true meaning of why we are allowed one extra day off. Freedom is not free. It is paid for by the sacrifice of brave individuals who fought for a cause greater than themselves. America is that cause, that grand ideal of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for which they swore to defend.

This Memorial Day, if you can’t visit a national cemetery or memorial, join me in saying a silent prayer for all those who gave their lives so America will continue to endure as a beacon of hope and freedom to the world. May God bless the fallen defenders of freedom, our veterans, our military, their families, and these United States of America.

Sincerely,

Ted
