Barack Obama: The Black Neville Chamberlain

Presidential candidate Barack Obama has been a star ever since throwing his hat into the presidential ring. Many people adore him simply because they see him as a breath of fresh air, a political maverick uncorrupted by Washington and who sincerely cares about the folks. Few people pay attention to his actual beliefs or policy positions. And that's a big mistake.

While Obama might have some good ideas--most politicians do--I'm scared of him. I fear he's totally possessed by the spirit of Neville Chamberlain, and that bodes ill for the safety and even survival of America and the entire Free World.

For those who don't know, Neville Chamberlain was Britain's Prime Minister in the '30's, when Hitler ruled Germany. Terrified of another war, Chamberlain, along with other European "leaders", negotiated with and appeased Hitler at every turn. No action was too dishonorable for Chamberlain to commit in the name of peace. His biggest claim to fame, or infamy, was his sell out of Czechoslovakia to Nazi Germany in 1938. He returned to England a hero, waving before the newsreel cameras the infamous "Peace of Paper" and proclaiming he had secured "Peace in our time". Less than a year later World War II broke out.

Fast forward to Obama, 2007.

During the YouTube debate Obama said that, if elected president, he would talk with the leaders of rogue nations and do so without conditions. Like his spiritual grandfather, Obama has an irrational faith in negotiation and the goodwill of tyrants. In an effort to clarify his remarks after receiving some criticism for them, Obama tried to make diplomacy seem like a bold strategy. He kept saying that we have nothing to fear from negotiation, implying that the Bush administration is cowardly for not talking to and dignifying dictators and terrorists.

Obama claimed that we shouldn't be afraid to tell "the worst dictators" that we don't like their values, human rights violations, or support for terrorists, but if they were willing to "go in a new direction" we should be willing to talk. How touching. Obama's going to trust leaders--and their terrorist sidekicks-- who oppress women, deny the Holocaust, call for the eradication of entire nations, demand conversion to their religion or else, and starve their people en masse. But he won't concede that president Bush has even a drop of decency. And that outlook is supposed to protect America? Yeah, right.

I can just see Obama--oops!--I mean Osama bin Laden and friends shaking at the thought of an Obama presidency. "Please Allah!" they'll pray in terror. "Save us from America's new leader! He's not like Bush. He wants to talk to us! He's going to tell us he doesn't like our values! Oh please, Allah, save us!"

And you want to elect Barack Obama commander-in-chief? Please!

PGZ's New Look

Hey friends! Dig the new look? I hope so. I was getting so tired of the old Poorgrrl Zone template. It had become so dull to me, but I was unsure about changing it for a long time. Then Blogger came up with this new and super easy way to change and customize their blogs. I played around with the new system on some of my other blogs and liked what I got so I decided to take the plunge and change PGZ's look (the look is very similar to a couple of my other blogs). Who knows. By this afternoon I may decide I don't like this custom job and change again, but for now Poorgrrl Zone has a brand new face. Enjoy!

Quotable Quotes: On Free Speech

"Some people's idea of free speech is that they are free to say what they like but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage." Sir Winston Churchill

I didn't know Sir Winston understood liberals so well.

Pray for Chuckie

I just found out that the youngest son of one of my dearest friends is heading for Iraq. His name is Chuckie. Where ever you stand on the war, please pray for Chuckie. Ask God to keep him safe and to give his family the strength to cope if He allows the worst to happen. Thanks so much friends. Be brave, little warrior. We're with you!

"Migrants" Are Dying, And It's All Our Fault!

When Yahoo! came up on my laptop today I noticed a news article declaring that more "migrants" are dying as they try to cross illegally into the US. Deaths are rising because illegals are using more remote and dangerous routes to enter America as safer routes are closed off. You just know that these deaths will be used by "immigrants' rights" groups to attack America and demand open borders. But who is really to blame for all the dying? The "migrants", that's who.

Mexicans and other foreigners know it's illegal to enter America, or any other country, without permission. If they insist on violating the law and get injured or killed in the process, it's their fault. Period. It's like a homeowner shooting an intruder; the intruder is at fault because he shouldn't have been breaking into someone else's house to begin with. So it is with illegal aliens; they shouldn't be trying to break into America in the first place.

Of course, liberals won't see it that way. For them, the only villain is America. Just as they blame terrorism on America's foreign policy, they'll blame the increasing deaths among illegals on her "inhumane" enforcement of border security. That poor Mexicans wouldn't be dying in the desert or the river if they stayed home is totally lost on liberals. So is the culpability of the Mexican government which won't enact needed economic reforms and encourages it's poorest citizens to break American law. None of that matters to the Blame America First crowd.

But it matters to real patriots like me. I don't want people to die, but America must not sacrifice her sovereignty to save foreigners who spit on her laws. If the bleeding hearts really care about "innocent" illegals they should urge them to stay in their homelands and recreate America's system there. Then they'd have the jobs and prosperity they long for. But don't hold your breathe. Why work to create your own wealth when you can take someone else's? Just don't blame me when you're floating in the Rio Grande.
