Burch: Where do we go from here?

Friday, August 9, 2013 at 3:14am
By Michael R. Burch

This will be my last article for The City Paper, so I’d like to express my thanks and gratitude to The City Paper for giving me the opportunity to write a weekly column, and to my editors William Williams and James Nix for catching my mistakes, which hopefully weren’t too many or too egregious. I would also like to thank my readers, because I know their time is valuable, and I really do appreciate the time they invested in my work. And I want to especially thank the readers who took the time to comment online: Loner, Captain Nemo, Govskeptic, Yogi, Dargent7, Budlight, Pswindle, Bfra, BenDover, Brrrk, and all the others ... thanks so very much!

Where do we go from here?

I hope to continue doing what I’ve been doing, which is trying to keep the spirit of the Confederacy from rising up like an impossible-to-kill Jason in a third-rate horror flick, intent on committing mindless mayhem and destroying lives. Quite seriously, that is how I see the current incarnation of the Grand Old Predators. A better analogy might be Jurassic Park, with raptor-like Republicans running around trying to exterminate anyone and everyone who’s more highly evolved.

Is it a stretch to say that they’re trying to kill us? Well, perhaps not intentionally, but stupidity can and does kill. A party that denies the clear evidence of global warming; that strips away the safety nets from the poor and elderly; that demands guns in bars, parks, trunks and schools; that insists being scared justifies mowing down minorities; and that obviously intends to keep doing the same reckless things in the Middle East, is going to get many Americans killed, and god-knows-how-many foreigners. Someone needs to stop the tiny-brained predators from wreaking so much havoc, so operating on the premise that the pen is mightier than empty noggins as well as the sword, I have tried to make other people aware of what I see so clearly myself.

The Republican Party has changed dramatically in recent years, in its hard shift to the far right, where grammar-challenged rubes like George W. Bush, Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann can become stars of the highest magnitudes. In my early working days, I was a Reagan Republican — perhaps a bit like the character Michael Fox played on Family Ties — because I was very concerned about the economy and my taxes. Like many young people intent on living out the American Dream, I wanted to have the finer things in life: nice cars, a nice house, etc. I preferred to enjoy the fruits of my labor, so it made sense for me to support fiscal responsibility on the part of the federal government. But the “trickle down” theory proved to be economic voodoo because rich people don’t have to spend most of the money they make. “Trickle up” might work much better because ordinary Joes and Janes will spend most of what they make, with the people who own businesses, stocks and bonds being the main beneficiaries.

But in any case, what I didn’t realize at the time, perhaps because it seemed so far-fetched, was that the spirit of the Confederacy was about to rise from the grave and reanimate. Thus, a vote for “fiscal responsibility” became a vote for chauvinism, racism, homophobia, intolerance and irrational religion (for instance, all the sins of heterosexual Christians can be forgiven freely by grace, but a homophobic God singles out gays and Muslims for “special consideration,” in the form of an eternal hell).

A vote for the GOP also became a vote for a return to feudalism, with a few rich layabout lords prospering from the incessant toil of their lowly serfs. As a result, today average Americans are working themselves into early graves while being told that the retirement plans and medical insurance they fund are “entitlements” the nation can’t afford, when trillions of dollars have been wasted on two wars fought on false premises. Meanwhile, super-wealthy businesses like Apple and individuals like Mitt Romney claim to “believe in America” while keeping most of their moolah stashed offshore. They obviously don’t “believe” in America enough to pay their fair share of the expenses of the wars being fought, at least ostensibly, to protect it.

This is not the American that I dreamed of, in my youthful idealism. I wanted the best of both worlds  — prosperity and equality — not the worst of both, which is where the GOP will undoubtedly take us if we don’t stand our ground. The Confederacy may have lost the last few battles of the Civil War, but its spirit lives and raves on today in the bigotry and intolerance of the Tea Party. Those of us who agree with the stand abolitionists took against the enslavement of African-Americans must now take a similar stand against our own enslavement, and the enslavement of our children and grandchildren.

Where do we go from here? I may not have the opportunity to write another column in these days of diminishing paper and ink, but I will definitely continue to write and publish online. And as the primary author of the Burch-Elberry Peace Initiative (www.thehypertexts.com/peace.htm), I will continue to seek a peaceful settlement to the conflict between Israeli Jews and Palestinians, which could be the key to world peace.

I believe it is a fundamental truth that on this planet, peace requires justice, and justice requires equality. Three times in its history the United States has made terrible decisions to subvert justice and equality, which resulted in large-scale holocausts. One holocaust was the ethnic cleansing and genocide of Native Americans. Another was the enslavement of African-Americans. The third, in my opinion, is American support of the ethnic cleansing and slow genocide of Palestinians. In the first two cases, massacre after massacre resulted, with the oppressors insisting that their victims were the “problem.” But it turned out that Sitting Bull wasn’t really a “terrorist,” just a man forced to the warpath because his people lived on the brink of extermination. It turned out that John Brown wasn’t really a “terrorist,” but a man willing to risk his life to end the terrible treatment of African-Americans. And one day in the future, if the human race survives, I have no doubt that the more enlightened people who study the actual causes of 9-11 will shake their heads sadly and wonder how so many Americans of our era could have been so blind.

I wish everyone who reads this final article the best of luck, but sometimes we have to make our own luck in this world, so I hope you will join me in the continuing struggle to establish a lasting peace, which requires real justice, which in turn requires real equality, both at home and abroad. Unfortunately, the self-avowed “greatest nation of all time” has not always lived up to its stated ideals. But if we keep evolving, we just might escape the fate of those other dinosaurs who failed to evolve, and of course the dodos.

"but the old statement of "if you tell a lie long enough" works again."

Good point gov.

And when it comes to the Obama Administration, he has discovered that if he lies about everything, his supporters will always believe it. This has been the most dishonest Administration in modern history, even worse than Nixon.

He got caught lying about the felon Rezko subsidizing his mortgage. Lied about jobs created by his failed stimulus, lies about his jobs record, lied when he said Solyndra was a Republican program, lied when he said Fast and Furious was a Bush program, lied Benghazi being a simultaneous protest, lied about NSA spying, lies about Obamacare, he lies about everything, but supporters like Mr. Burch never call him out.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/11/13 at 11:38

gov, Libertine-

You can't say that it works all of the time. yogi has been lying from day one and only bud thinks he is telling the truth.

By: yogiman on 8/11/13 at 11:55

Well dumba$$,

Why hasn't at least one of you Barry fans shown proof I was lying. Damn dumba$$, all I've given as evidence is word used by your man Barry. Are you calling your man a liar?

I've been waiting for several years now, for at least one of you Obama fans to prove I've been lying to give at least one iota of evidence. I'm still waiting for one of you to prove how an Indonesian citizen can become president of the USA.

But for your weak mind Dumba$$, you should be worried like hell because the gang called our congress let him pull it off. But if you're a 'back room' communist like several congressmen are, hang in there, Barry is just around the corner.

By: Captain Nemo on 8/11/13 at 1:06

It has been shown many time that you are wrong, but Comrade yogi is too stupid to understand just how wrong and stupid he is.

By: yogiman on 8/11/13 at 1:10

Sorry to call you a liar dumba$$, but name one time when any of you showed me wrong on the usurper in office.

By: bfra on 8/11/13 at 2:29

yogi - Name one time (just 1 time) when you have ever posted the truth, with anything to verify it to be TRUTH! Habitual LIAR!

You can't, because it has never happened. You will die a lying old fool!

By: yogiman on 8/11/13 at 2:48

Very simple, bfra. I simple quoted from Barack Hussein Obama's autobiography. Was he lying? I further noted his advertisement of 16 years that he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. Again; was he lying?

And, honestly, I cited many more items and gave references. Apparently none of you looked them up to prove me wrong; you just said I was.

And none of you have referred me to any law on our books that gives an Indonesian citizen the natural born citizen status need to become POTUS.

And I'm still waiting on one of you to prove me wrong. Don't just post it, give me a reference to prove it.There simply isn't one, kid.

I'm afraid you all are going to find out the hard way. But then, if you're a bunch of communist Obama fans it won't matter; will it?

By: bfra on 8/11/13 at 2:58

Well folks, there is your answer! The LYING Brainless blob cannot show 1 time when he posted a TRUTH with facts to verify it. All he can do is go into a song & dance to change the subject. The TRUTH is not in the LYING old fool.

If he had all of the facts he claims to have, he would be at the White House demanding Obama be tossed out. Again he is a brainless old LYING FOOL.

By: yogiman on 8/11/13 at 3:20

My dear lady (as I use the term loosely), are you calling the usurper (your president) in office a liar who wrote a book of BS and called it his autobiography? How does it feel to be a supporting him as a such a lying fellow communist?

It's a shame you don't know the Constitution, bfra. Or can't you read?

I'll repeat: To accept someone as your president whom you have no idea who he is shows your absolute ignorance in politics; especially the Constitution.

Maybe you should go back to school and learn a little bit of what our founders meant when they specified the requirements to become POTUS.

By: yogiman on 8/11/13 at 4:27

bfra,

I imagine the NCP door will be "shut" tonight. If you're interested, go to Bing or Google and ask the simple question "who is the real obama".

If you aren't interested in having a legal President in office, simply ignore it.

You're awful ignorant to be so educated, dargent7. You don't have to be a natural born citizen to teach at any school. But you do have to be a natural born citizen to become president of the United States.

Please explain to me how a man with British subject his Kenyan father, who was adopted into Indonesian citizenship, become a natural born American citizen.

Please hurry before they shut the door. I'd like to know where to find that law.

D7,

Back to the library for you. When did Obama teach ar Harvard? Compare Obama's resume to that of Mitt Ronmey, Bill Clinton, GHWB or even GWB. Obama wasn't a standout in the private sector, as a state legislator, or as a US Senator. He is truly the Manchurian Candidate.

Fast forward to the present, Obama has the worst record of any modern President using any metric.

GWB has a graduated degree from Harvard, Romney has two graduate degrees from Harvard, and Clinton was a Rhodes Scholar and graduated from the top of his class at Harvard. Obama is mediocre in comparison.

By: Mike Burch on 8/11/13 at 8:43

Anyone who has listened to GWB mangle English grammar has to wonder how on earth he earned degrees from Yale and Harvard. I once had lunch with a professor who acted as an adviser to other professors at Yale. He told me that he had tried to find any evidence that GWB attended classes at Yale, and was unable to find such records. There are questions about whether GWB actually showed up for his duty when he was in the Texas Air National Guard. He was relieved of duty for not taking a physical exam. Did he take his college exams? Could he have passed tests at Yale and Harvard, if he had taken them himself?

But the real Manchurian Candidate was Bishop Williard Mitt Romney, who not only wears magical Mormon underwear and plans to become a God with his own planet to rule, but also shipped out American jobs to China sweatshops, then invested millions of dollars in a Chinese "factory" that sounded like a Nazi concentration camp, with thousands of young girls working for slave wages, surrounded by guard towers and barbed wire. Pictures taken from within the sweatshop show how crowded and dismal the slave quarters were. Romney then bragged about his investment at a Florida mansion, pretending that he had bought it when he only owned about 10%, but some of the serving staff caught him on their cell phone cameras ... that was also when he made his infamous remark about 48% of Americans being shiftless moochers, which probably cost him the election.

By: Loner on 8/11/13 at 9:56

The NCP is now a zombie paper....no more hard copy...no new online articles or new comment boards....will this continue? Could be it's on auto-pilot.

Years from now, I can see some of these knuckleheads insulting each other, on this same comment board...(page 1,467 by that time)....this may be a new twist on the old defunct newspaper story....will the NCP live on in cyber-space in some perverted and stunted fashion? We will soon find out.

Darge, good to read your posts....the BHO haters are beyond reasoning with....they just hate his guts...they wallow in their hatred and celebrate it.....their minds are closed and in lock-down mode.

By: yogiman on 8/11/13 at 10:06

Good article, Mike. Unlike you and others on this board I will take your word for it until I know differently as a fact.

And yes Loner, I do hate the man's guts for usurping that office. And I can assure you, race has nothing to do with it. And I can also assure you I'm not beyond reasoning; all I ask is for one of you to prove to me he's in that office legally.

And don't say it's because he was elected by the people like John McCain. Doesn't McCain know the Constitution has certain requirements to be in that office either; like you all? You know, like being a natural bop0rn citizen. Why didn't McCain question Obama when Obama questioned McCain?

I'm still waiting to learn how an Indonesian citizen can become a natural born American citizen. Do you have and answer?

By: Libertine on 8/12/13 at 3:19

Mike,

All of your wild speculation about GWB makes you sound like one of the birther conspiratists.

Mitt Romney worked hard and has been successful in everything he did. Saved numerous businesses, started his own successful business, saved the Olympics, was a successful Governor of a blue state.

Barack Obama prays to a invisible dead Jew in the sky for guidance every single day and when he passes away he believes that he will live in a giant mansion somewhere in space in a city with all his dead friends where the streets are paved with gold.

You are very selective in your criticisms. Anyone who uses Apple products is guilty of promoting the labor conditions that you describe in China.

From a historical perspective it is unfathomable that Barack Obama was elected President. He had no executive or business experience and a short mediocre career as a legislator. The result has been the worst record of any modern President.

By: bfra on 8/12/13 at 3:28

Libertine must be yogi posting with a different user name. He/she is just as ignorant about Bush, Romney & ilk as yogi.

Thanks Mike for trying to keep the board on a sane level.

By: gdiafante on 8/12/13 at 5:25

It still lives...weird.

And you guys have been arguing all weekend? Surely there are better ways to pass the time...

By: yogiman on 8/12/13 at 6:43

bfra,

I would be great if you would expose your brilliance and explain you knowledge (or should I say lack of) of you postings.

Just ranting is exposing your lack of knowledge too much. Prove us wrong and explain how Barack Hussein Obama changed his Indonesian citizenship to natural born American citizenship.

By: gdiafante on 8/12/13 at 7:03

I'd ask you this, yogi:

When did Obama renounce is U.S. citizenship? When was Obama naturalized as an Indonesian citizen?

Perhaps you should do some research with the current law and State Department protocol (and understand the difference between natural born and naturalized).

Here's a good start...http://www.richw.org/dualcit/faq.html

By: yogiman on 8/12/13 at 7:36

I'm interested in the laws of the 1960s, gdiafante. The laws of the 2000s could not override the laws of the 1960s in the 1960s because they did not exist in the 1960s..

According to his autobiography, Obama was born in Kenya. Was he lying? And according to the First and Third Congresses, you must be a natural born citizen to become president of the USA. And they mentioned PARENTS, not parent.

Unless the laws have been changed, a natural born citizen is one whose PARENTS are citizens of the nation in which they are born. A naturalized citizen is a foreigner who moves to another nation and takes a test to become a citizen of the nation they wish to become a citizen of.

According to your thoughts: Can a child born to an illegal alien (woman of course) to gain the benefits our legislature has given to children born to illegal aliens. The child is taken back to her home country and raised until he was 20 years old, then he could come back to the USA for the next 15 years and be elected President?

Obama became an Indonesian citizen when his stepfather adopted him so he could go to school there. Assuming he was an natural born American citizen at that time with a British subject father, he lost his American citizenship because Indonesia would not accept dual-citizenship.

So by what law did he re-become a natural born American citizen?

A better question is: Why did he refuse to prove his citizenship in 2007?

Another little question: When his opponent raised the question of his birth in his Illinois Senate race, why did he say "So what, I'm not running for president"?

By: gdiafante on 8/12/13 at 7:42

I'm interested in the laws of the 1960s, gdiafante. The laws of the 2000s could not override the laws of the 1960s in the 1960s because they did not exist in the 1960s..

That's why you're wrong. This country's judicial system is based on precedent law. The applicable law is the most recent interpretation.

If you can't understand this very, VERY basic concept, discussion with you is futile.

By: bfra on 8/12/13 at 7:45

gdiafante - Any discussion with brainless yogi is futile because he doesn't have the brain matter to understand like normal people. He also has an alter or is using another user name of Libertine!

By: gdiafante on 8/12/13 at 7:46

We're on borrowed time here, so I figure I'll set him straight...for old time's sake...lol

By: yogiman on 8/12/13 at 7:46

OK, gdiafante,

Show me where the constitutional laws were changed to where a dual-citizen could become POTUS.

And by the way, Rich Wales is not a lawyer, he only made his decisions based on personal thoughts, not legal facts.

By: gdiafante on 8/12/13 at 7:50

That site CLEARLY references applicable court cases (precedents). Again, understand the term "precedent" and you'll go along way in understanding the issue.

By: gdiafante on 8/12/13 at 7:52

And, you've never answered my questions. Chop chop.

By: yogiman on 8/12/13 at 8:03

Did I miss-read your questions? Repeat, please. And like you, I've got some things to do before the rain starts again.

By: bfra on 8/12/13 at 8:05

gdiafante - As proved in the past, you can repeat until dooms day & brainless blob will not understand and keep yelling "repeat", "show me again", "repeat". His most used words!

By: gdiafante on 8/12/13 at 8:26

Yeah, you're right, bfra. He seemed to see the link I provided but not the question right before it, go figure.

Yogi, READ my 8:03 post. Reading is a wonderful thing, you know.

By: yogiman on 8/12/13 at 8:28

To answer your questions, gdiafante: When did Obama renounce his U.S. citizenship. He didn't, he was a child. But the fact that Indonesia did not accept dual citizenship automatically renounced his U.S. citizenship if he was, in fact, one. Was he a Kenyan citizen as he had advertized or a U.S. citizen?

He became a naturalized Indonesian citizen when his stepfather adopted him. Indonesia would not accept foreign students in their schools so his stepfather willingly adopted him.

And no, Barry didn't have a say in it which would be immaterial to his later citizenship.

If he was a natural born U.S. citizen, he could not get it back. He could only become a naturalized citizen. Has he? When? Why did he refused to show his papers?

By: gdiafante on 8/12/13 at 8:40

When did Obama renounce his U.S. citizenship. He didn't, he was a child.

Ok, that's the first part, so he never relinquished his citizenship. Good. Let's move on.

But the fact that Indonesia did not accept dual citizenship automatically renounced his U.S. citizenship if he was, in fact, one.

Essentially, what you're arguing is that according to Indonesian laws, he relinquished his U.S. citizenship. According to U.S. law, he did not. The last time I checked, U.S. law is applicable.

Was he a Kenyan citizen as he had advertized or a U.S. citizen?

He was born in Hawaii, which makes him ius soli, citizen by "right of the soil" or a natural born citizen, per INA § 301, 8 USC § 1401 (as, we have both stated, the U.S. Constitition does not define the issue).

If he was a natural born U.S. citizen, he could not get it back. He could only become a naturalized citizen. Has he?

Wrong, see the first part. According to U.S. law, he never relinquished it.

Anything else?

By: yogiman on 8/12/13 at 8:55

Some good arguing points, gdiafante.

If you're correct, why did he refuse to be questioned by the Senate when they questioned John McCain? Of the [supposedly] differences he went through as a young man, why has he been so secretive?

Why has he refused to show his college papers? Could it be because they will show he received aid as a foreign student?

And by the way: Why did Lamar Alexander say he had been investigated and was eligible but refused to give the facts they found him eligible with?

Why did they question McCain but did not question Obama? Why did they acknowledge McCain as being a natural born citizen because his parents were American citizens? Why did they then accept Obama as a natural born citizen with only one American parent; especially with a father who was a British subject?

Gotta go. I check later.

By: gdiafante on 8/12/13 at 9:04

If you're correct, why did he refuse to be questioned by the Senate when they questioned John McCain?

What does that have to do with the issue? Did he break the law?

Why has he refused to show his college papers? Could it be because they will show he received aid as a foreign student?

Because they're irrelevant to the issue and he isn't required by law to show them.

Why did Lamar Alexander say he had been investigated and was eligible but refused to give the facts they found him eligible with?

I suggest that if you have an issue with a U.S. Senator, you contact the Senator (and he doesn't have to answer you).

I think we're done here.

By: gdiafante on 8/12/13 at 9:09

Why did they question McCain but did not question Obama? Why did they acknowledge McCain as being a natural born citizen because his parents were American citizens? Why did they then accept Obama as a natural born citizen with only one American parent; especially with a father who was a British subject?

McCain was questioned because an issue arose concerning the fact that he was born in the Panama Canal Zone. Obama was born in the United States, hence per INA § 301, 8 USC § 1401 (as cited above), it's a moot issue.

It's raining and I can't play in the rain at my age so here I am....

Gdiafante, why has so many experts been able to show where that Hawaiian birth certificate is a fake? All birth certificates issued by a state health department I've ever known of were copied off of the original document signed by the doctor that delivered the baby. Why did it take 9 layers to get a copy of Barry's? Why did he say the Hawaiian government would not allow him to have a copy yet he stated "I discovered this article, folded away among my birth certificate and old vaccination forms, when I finished high school"? (last clause of page 26 of his autobiography) If he had a birth certificate when he finished high school, how could he argue the Hawaiian government would not allow him to have a copy? Could it be because the birth certificate he was referring to was his Kenyan birth certificate?

Can you explain how the one he finally presented used fonts that did not exist in 1961? Can you explain why his step-sister said he was born at a different hospital than he said he was born in? Can you explain why the numbers on his birth certificate are larger than the number on the certificates a two twins born the day after him in the hospital he claimed?

Can you explain why the SSN he showed was issued to a man from Connecticut?

Blob - Doesn't matter whether you do or not. Nobody really cares! Obama is in there on his 2nd. term, elected by popular vote & not a damn thing an old fool like you can do about it.
