The American Way


       An American’ is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish , Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani or Afghan. 

     An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as native Americans.

    An American is Christian , or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan . The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses. 

     An American is also free to believe in no religion..  For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.

An American lives in the most prosperous land in the history of the world.
     The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence , which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.

     An American is generous.. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return. 


    When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country! 


     As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan ...
      The national symbol of America, The Statue of Liberty, welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America 


      Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11, 2001 earning a better life for their families. It's been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.
         So you can try to destroy the American way. Hitler did. So did General Tojo , and Stalin , and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world.. But, in doing so, you would just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.

What is an American?

          "An American is a citizen of the United States, who is proud of their country, who is willing to fight for it, with guns or with words. Who, no matter where they may be, what they are doing, or what has happened, still believes, deep in their heart and soul, that what we stand for, and fight for, is right. And what we have here, in the United States, is the best way of life."

Making Money

It is September 18th, 2011.
    7 days ago, America was attacked. Two planes were flown into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon, and one was brought down by it's passengers, into a field in Pennsylvania. The families who lost loved ones in that tragedy, my heart goes out to you, and so do my prayers.
     Brady Grove, *Chip Macadamia*, is turning out to be a big hit. He is a student, an "actor", and now he is a rap battler. For those who don't know, rap battling is when two, or four, drunk, drug-overdosed teens get together and start to sling insults at eachother, in rap form. Brady Grove, fellow classmate and runner, is quite good at it. So good, in fact, that he is starting to make money off of it! Well, he's planning to anyway. Naturally, as his friend, and hopeful money-maker, I intended to be part of his rising fame.
    Brady Grove, Joey S., and DJ R. have formed a rap group called "W.B.R". This stands for "White Boys Rapping." Brady is selling t-shirts for $10 a piece. They only cost $5 to make. If we sell 20 tshirts, we make around $200!! But, the only problem with making money, is how to spend it. At first, we were going to split it fairly. But then, Brady wanted more because he did all the work. (Which is true.) Brady also wanted me to get more for the work I did on paperwork, etc. (BTW, I am the Macadamia Family Consigliori, WBR's unofficial manager, and, I regret to say it, personal aide to Chip, as well as Joey.)
     Joey didn't like that idea. He thought that because Brady is a cocky bastard, he would use leaving the group as a bargaining chip. Joey wants 50% of the profits to go into a group fund, 15% to go to himself, and Brady to get 20%. The whole ordeal is very confusing.
  Anyway, hopefully, if all works out, I'll get money! This could be a multi-hundred dollar deal!!

                 Thank you, good night, and good reading.

The Bigger The Government, The Smaller The People

July 25, 2011. Apparently, we have "seven days" 'till the end of the world. It has been a long time since my last update, and for that, I apologize.
          Apologize. Apparently, that's what some people in the government, can't do. Barack Obama can NOT say, "I'm sorry America. I'm sorry I've been treating you like worthless idiots. I only spoke tonight because I want to be reelected. You deserve better than that. Not you, Mr.Loop-Hole, you poor thing, and not you, Mrs.Rich off giant fraud. But to you, the Hard-working people in the Lower, Middle, AND Upper class."  Obama has not, will not, and can not say this. He is too, high and mighty too apologize to us worthless peasants. He is going to keep making us grow the grain and raise the animals, so he can feed his giant, government family.
          Mr. President, Speaker Boehner brought up an interesting point tonightl. It was that when the government gets bigger, the people. The PEOPLE, get smaller. American citizens voted, not for a "bipartisan government", but for a government who will represent what they want. Not what the corrupt CEO wants, and not what the worthless bum wants. But what the normal, hard-working, American citizen wants.
         Mr. President, what was the point of the speech tonight? You have already stated that you don't have a plan for this "crisis". So what was the point? To raise awareness of what the American people already know?No. This speech was to scare us. It was meant to rally your troops for your reelection! You want people to think that the only way to "save America from this terrible crisis", is to follow you! Oh yeah, don't forgot the always sacred excuse, "It was Bush's fault!" In the first sentence you said that "the previous administration" had asked for 7 raises to the debt ceiling! Well, I have news for you, those 7 cost less than your 1!! YOU have asked for the largest ceiling raise in history, and YOU have also spent the most money in presidential history!!! You have spent more money in your first 3 years, than Bush did in his whole 8 years!!! It was NOT Bush's fault, Mr.President. It was, is, and will be, YOUR FAULT. In the first 19 months of the your administration, the federal debt held increased by $2.5260 trillion, which is more than the total that was made by all U.S. presidents from George Washington through Ronald Reagan!!!! You see, it was your fault, the debt got so high, not ours. So please stop trying to increase our taxes, and go against your employer's demands. (By the way Mr.President, you're not the boss. We are.)
      Thank you. Good night, and good reading.

The Debate: Part 1

  Today is October 28th, 2010. One more week, blogs will be earlier.

   First, Background information. Last night, my OTHER friends father, my father, and I went to a "lecture" from Howard Dean and Jeb Bush at NKU. At the reception, before the lecture, I walked in and Howard Dean came right up to us. He introduced himself and started to talk about a lot of democratic stuff. I later talked to Jeb Bush, and he asked what grade I was in and where I went to school. My father mentioned that I was President of the student body, and he asked what my platform was, and I immediately responded, "Change". " He laughed, and I went on to talk about locker breaks and zone-zero. He said that the most important thing in an election is to ALWAYS keep your promises. He also made a point of saying that, if I ever ran for President, he would try to help me, he might be very old, but he'll try to help me. That's all for tonight, debate is tomorrow. Thanks.

Topic Twelve: Social Class

 Today is October 26th, 2010. Tomorrow I am supposed to go to a debate between Howard Dean and Jeb Bush. I'll write about it on Thursday.

 Today in Language Arts we read an article about "Social Class". It talked about whether or not social class matters, and if it's still in America. First of all, social class completely matters, it can usually give you an accurate portrayal of that person's personality and how they live. The article also said that you can't tell a persons party, or for that matter social class, by what car they drive, or by the votes they cast, or the color of their skin. I agree with the car they drive, because of bank loans, but by votes they cast? Really? I can't name a single lower-class family that voted for McCain, and definately not any upper-class that voted for Obama. (I mean Bill Gates, Mr.Pickett.)  Also, you can ALMOST ALWAYS tell  a person's party by their race, I'd bet my entire life savings that 80% of African Americans voted for Barack Obama. And that only 20% voted for McCain!     The article also mentions how Bill Clinton began life dirt-poor and rose through the social classes to become President.. It said nothing about how Republican Presidents did the same thing. Take Ronald Reagan, for example, his father was a drunk and also "dirt-poor" and Ronald "rose through the social classes to become President", too! Overall, this article was completely biased and i could hardly read the whole thing. That's all for tonight, Thanks!

Eleventh Topic: Abortion

  Today is October 22, 2010. Reminder, blog post will be at an earlier time in a couple of weeks.

      I know this might be a touchy subject, but there will be worse. Abortion, is the "termination of pregnancy"...... Don't you like how Wikipedia words it, the termination of pregnancy, not, the death of an unborn child, the murdering of an innocent baby. I just don't understand why that would even be an option for a mother. Yes, I understand that if mother is too young to have a child, or there is a the women can possibly die from it, you need to do it, but doing it for the sake of just doing it, really? Democrats are NOT in favor of the death penalty, yet they ARE in favor of abortion. How can you be able to kill a child who has done nothing wrong, but let a serial killer get off scotch-free. It really makes me sick........ That's all for tonight. Thank you.
