2013 is shaping up as a big year for me so far.
In addition to hosting duties at MatchGame Monday Night and The GayPatriot Report on The 405 Radio Network, I’m also the new editor of Watchdog Wire, North Carolina. Watchdog Wire is “a place for citizen journalists to connect with other like-minded people in their area and across the nation. It will also serve as a platform to post original content on issues that are often ignored by the media.”
My first article at Watchdog Wire-NC is now up…. please read and let me know your thoughts.
Over the next 30 days, North Carolina is expected to become the site for the next battle over President Obama’s signature legislation, the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Former Gov. Bev Purdue had begun to implement the state-based exchanges under the ACA, however the newly sworn-in Republican Gov. Pat McCrory has put on hold those plans, at least for now.
If you are in North Carolina and would like to be a contributor, please email me: bruce-at-gaypatriot-dot-org.
In making the case for civil rights for black Americans in the 1960s, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. often cited not just the founding (and other defining) documents of our country, but also its patriotic hymns.
In his “I Have a Dream” speech spoken almost fifty years ago on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, he referenced the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution as well as the Emancipation Proclamation. He recited verses from “My country ‘Tis of Thee.” He did not fault the American ideal, instead wanted to make that ideal real for all citizens of this great republic.
In that great address, he spoke the word, “free” or “freedom” twenty-five times. He knew the word defined as aspect of the American ideal. And he was ever the optimist:
I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. (more…)
Our First President had this to say on his Second Inaugural.
I am again called upon by the voice of my country to execute the functions of its Chief Magistrate. When the occasion proper for it shall arrive, I shall endeavor to express the high sense I entertain of this distinguished honor, and of the confidence which has been reposed in me by the people of united America.
Previous to the execution of any official act of the President the Constitution requires an oath of office. This oath I am now about to take, and in your presence: That if it shall be found during my administration of the Government I have in any instance violated willingly or knowingly the injunctions thereof, I may (besides incurring constitutional punishment) be subject to the upbraidings of all who are now witnesses of the present solemn ceremony.
If only we were so lucky today to hear this from our re-elected leader.
First of all, it would be the shortest thing Barack Obama has ever said in public. 100 points.
Secondly, it would show that Barack Obama has humility and respects We, The People. 300 points.
Alas, the Tyrant Boy-King Barack Hussein Obama will deliver nothing like this speech today. Instead, we will hear the droning on of cliches and platitudes with no meaning and no firm plans to help American’s get back to work.
In short, the 2013 Obama Inaugural is merely Groundhog Day 2009.
We are, a broad-minded left-leaning friend said to me just before the election, more divided than we have ever been — and the winner would have his work cut out for him.
Perhaps defying her hopes, the winner, President Barack Obama did not use his victory to heal the wounds festering for many years and exacerbated by his campaign, but instead acted to further those divisions. In the first month after his victory, he met only once with Republicans — and then in the context of a meeting with all congressional leaders.
He taunted Republicans on the fiscal cliff — and, more recently, on the debt ceiling. Save for his speech Election Night, he has not offered much in the way of conciliatory rhetoric. Nor has he made any significant effort to reach out to his partisan adversaries to find ways to work together.
He can make an attempt today, in his second inaugural address, to ease those national divisions simply by addressing them — and by acknowledging his part in furthering them. He could promise to devote the first part of his second term to working together with Republicans in the national interest, perhaps making a grand gesture toward reconciliation. He would have to show that he intends to do more than just express his commitment to confronting these divisions.
He could start by acknowledging the legitimacy of Republican concerns about the growing size of the federal government, the increasing burden of government debt and the stultifying effect of regulation.
Will he do this? The record doesn’t give us much hope that he would offer this change.
