Free countries like our own have an even more powerful claim on the patriotism of their citizens than do other kinds of countries. But it seems to be our country has even greater need of it than most.
Every country requires a high degree of cooperation and unity among its citizens if it is to achieve the internal harmony that any good society requires … Most countries have relied on the common ancestry and the traditions of their people as the basis of their unity. But the United States of America can rely on no such commonality; we are an enormously diverse and varied people; almost all immigrants or the descendants of immigrants … we are always vulnerable to divisions among us, which can be exploited to set one group against another and to destroy the unity and harmony that has allowed us to flourish. We live in a time when civil demotion has been undermined and national unity is under attack constantly.
That’s it in a nutshell. If you think our country is in a mess, look no further than academia to see why. All societies are not created equal. We are an exceptional country and, our history is astounding, warts and all. Is it any wonder why people from all over the world clamor to come to the US for a better, more rewarding, life. Our public schools were established not just to end illiteracy but, to promote civic virtues and ‘socialize’ all, citizen and immigrant, into our culture of “Liberty and Justice for all”. Is it a big surprise to anyone that people are running to get their kids out of the public school system, run by Progressives and Unions, into schools that actually teach their kids how to be useful citizens and literate? Charters and private schools have long waiting lists for a reason. To base “our history” on class, gender, ethnicity and race is the crudest form of higher education and dumbs down history to benefit Progressive divisiveness.
Executive amnesty by any other name is still amnesty. Trade in Services Act and, TiSA: A Secret Trade Agreement That Will Usurp America’s Authority to Make Immigration Policy
If you read these statements closely, you’ll see that most of them concern only the TPP and its lack of impact on immigration policy. But the Trade in Services Agreement, or “TiSA”—another trade deal being negotiated in secret by the Obama administration—is another story; there is little doubt that it will constrain the future ability of the United States Congress to regulate U.S. immigration policy. In fact, deregulating the U.S. work visa system, and therefore opening it up to foreign corporations that provide services (as opposed to goods) is the explicit purpose of an entire annex (section) in TiSA, entitled “Movement of Natural Persons.”
Read the list of “service based industries” in the second article of those professional areas included. Nothing has been left out!
“The leaked TiSA text makes it clear that contrary to the claims by proponents of fast-track trade promotion authority, the reality is that those voting for fast track are ceding key powers to make immigration law and policy to an unelected group of corporations and foreign governments.
Dems got all wee wee over Obama being Obama. Fun stuff… you see, it was all about him and his legacy…
By making a rare, last-ditch visit to Capitol Hill, President Barack Obama’s message to House Democrats was clear and simple: The trade deal they’re in danger of voting down is about him.
“TAA has always been an absolute admission to me that there is going to be lots of lost jobs,” Rep. Louise Slaughter, a top House Democrat from New York, said before the vote. Multiple Democrats echoed that sentiment on the House floor.
There was also palpable anger at the president leading up to the vote. Rep. Peter DeFazio said he thought Obama “tried to guilt people and impugn their integrity.”
“There was a number of us who were insulted,” DeFazio (D-Ore.) said in an interview after the meeting with Obama.
He’s been insulting all of us for years now…the Dems are just starting to notice?
