Dad, the Dems, the Prospector and His Old Friend

prospector-rocker-box.jpgMy 86 year old preacher dad told me a great story. Surprisingly, it was a new parable rather than one dad forgot that he told me numerous times before.

Dad said a prospector worked his land digging for gold. Every Saturday, the prospector would take his gold/gold dust to town and cash it in. One Saturday, he bumped into an old high school friend who had fallen upon hard financial times. The prospector graciously invited his friend to bring a shovel and dig for gold on his land. Generously, the prospector told his friend that he could keep all the gold he uncovered.

Come Monday morning, the prospector's friend was a no show. The friend did not show up the entire week. Cashing in his gold on Saturday, the prospector saw and approached his friend, “What happened? I looked for you all week.” The friend replied, “Do you know how much a shovel costs these days?”

Dad burst into laughter at the trifling attitude of the prospector's old friend. I laughed with dad while seizing the opportunity to tell my lifelong Democrat father that the same trifling attitude is promoted by the Democrats disguised as compassion and is embraced by millions.

The prospector's behavior is Republican, offering his impoverished friend (the poor), not a handout, but a golden opportunity. He offered his friend the dignity, self-respect and joy of earning his own living with endless possibilities. Remember, the old friend was told he could keep all the gold he uncovered.

The old friend's behavior is that of an Obama, Democrat, Hollywood and MSM (mainstream media) indoctrinated entitlement junkie. How dare his rich prospector friend expect him to acquire a shovel. The prospector is obviously white, out-of-touch, racist, sexist and homophobic. This prospector seems like the kind of jerk who thinks it reasonable to expect all Americans to show an ID to participate in the American privilege of voting.

Upon further investigation, the filthy rich SOB prospector is probably Republican, Conservative and Christian. No wonder the insensitive selfish hate-filled jerk prospector expected his old high school friend to get a shovel without government assistance and show up for work.

Folks, the Democratic Party would place the prospector's old friend who lacked the initiative to acquire a shovel on a level just below sainthood, considering him to be the victim/hero in the story. This is the way Democrats view minorities and the poor; expecting very little, refusing to hold them accountable for any of their socioeconomic woes.

As a mater of fact, the less initiative and self-reliance the better. Democrats simply keep the barely-enough-to-get-by handouts coming, gin up class envy and hatred for the prospector; and promise to punish him. Their sheep who are in sync with their master's voice continue to vote Democrat.

If you dare suggest that people stop defrauding the government with false food stamp and disability claims; that blacks stop dropping out of school, shooting each other in epidemic numbers and stop having babies out of wedlock, the Democrats will vilify you. Their response is “Easy for you to say” you racist insensitive jerk.

The Democratic Party advocates lowering the bar culturally, morally and in every area of American life. The Left/Democrats deem any suggestion of holding people to a standard as mean-spirited, racist, judgmental and dare I say, Christian.

Back to the prospector -- the Left would argue that because the dirt road to the town where the prospector cashed in his gold was etched by wagon-wheels, horses and the foot steps of many, the mayor should confiscate the prospector’s gold and share it with everyone.

Remember when Obama scolded small business owners for taking pride in building their businesses? Obama said, “You didn't build that.”  Obama claimed that government built roads providing infrastructure for business to operate, thus making it only fair that he redistribute wealth. Deadbeats like the prospector's old friend stood up and cheered, “Obama!..Obama!”

Clearly, the prospector, the Republican, is the good guy in my dad's story. He showed real compassion for his old high school friend by offering him a “hand up” rather than a “handout”.

By addicting as many Americans as possible to government assistance, Democrats increase their political power. Their tried and true tactic is to brand the prospector as the devil, kick him in the teeth and encourage their ill-informed duped base to do the same. Insidiously evil.

For this reason, I am a black conservative/Republican.

  • Saw an infomercial on TV last night touting the Mexican auto building industry, the quality cars and the opportunity for graphic designers.  I was upset, but I was more taken aback by the utter hypocrisy of the Government of Mexico for the ad.  We have countless numbers of illegals crossing our border, a border owned on one side by the U.S. and the other owned by Mexico.  If things are so damn good with your auto industry WHY don't you close your border and keep your Mexican's at home.  The House of Representatives needs to shut off ALL aid for Mexico and Central American countries.  If not, you and I will continue to pay for the foreign aid AND th provide Social Services to those illegal aliens.  If the House of Representatives would take such action, we could take the ink out of Obama's pen and disconnect his phone.  If "We the People" can understand such action could/should be taken, why isn't the House doing that???????  

  • Carolan, THANK YOU for saying it so well. Margit, how could you validate the Mexican government over a two-tour Marine who was moving cross country to a new city and got lost? I have lived in San Diego and accidentally went over that border. Not a comforting feeling and very easy to do.

    America is supporting Mexico's drug cartel, we are supporting their homeless and unemployed on our tax dollar, we are supporting and raising their children in government institutions, and we buy their produce and vacation on their beaches. We get in gratitude the imprisonment of one of America's finest with no consideration of which side of the border supports the other side of the border.

    Our politicians fawn over Pres. Nieto. They ignore the man who did his patriotic duty and was willing to sacrifice his life for America. That in itself is disgusting. I find it disgusting to connect any degree of guilt to a man who did everything by the book! He was in horror he had crossed that border and he showed that Mexican guard his weapons. America's new role is to apologize and ask for forgiveness. I AM WAITING FOR OUR LEADERS TO STOP THIS ASS KISSING AND BECOME PROTECTIVE OF AMERICA AND AMERICANS.

    I have spent the day gathering more phone numbers for the commander of Camp Pendleton and all the representative districts of San Diego. I will be asking them tomorrow what they were doing when we were paying them to protect Americans. And, why are our Camp Pendleton Marines spending their weekends and money in Tijuana? America has become too accepting of guilt and we have forgotten how to protect our own. I always wonder what George Washington, who crossed the Delaware River at Trenton, N.J. with frost bitten men using rags for shoes WOULD THINK OF AMERICANS TODAY. He asked his men then to "remember what you are about to fight for". Do you think Washington would have left one of those men in a Mexican prison for even one night? We no longer remember how much historical blood it took so our politicians could kiss the asses of those we support.I am very graphic when I think we have all gone nuts!

    Carolan, you have a friend in me for life!

  • @Carolan -- Great statement. Thank you very much. 

    @Margit Gantt -- What terrible crimes did this Marine commit, other than making some direction mistakes any one of us could make? And what about the Mexican Govt. -- their biggest export used to be oil -- now it is their own citizens who they send here knowingly breaking OUR laws? Obama and Congress could easily free this Marine for all they have been doing for Mexico. I think you need to re-think what you said. God bless America 

  • I am very active in Mexico and know that this  EX MARINE broke a lot of Mexican LAWS-  and only the MEXICAN  GOVERNMENT  can free him.  Small infringements can be taken care of by  the consulate etc. but even their hands are tied-  If you break a law in any foreign country you must take your punishment there- same as US!!

    Sadly the EX MARINE must pay his dues! This will serve as an example to anyone else trying  something similar-- No slap on the wrist here in Mexico- Guilty till proven innocent! (Napoleonic law)

  • We are ALL  AMERICANS  of different origins- and should put  American first- if you choose to be  an AMERICAN of hispanic  or African or english background- Keep your roots-- bu  be an AMERICAN FIRST!

  • To all members of the Tea Party:

    There is going to be a meeting in Congress the first of November regarding Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.

    WE NEED TO GET MARINE SGT. ANDREW TAHMOORESSI OUT OF THAT MEXICAN PRISON. The only way we can help is to annoy the volunteers manning the telephone lines of our elected representatives so they will actually express our demands. There must be volume and consistency of calls - and we need a thousand calls to be made weekly.

    The Sergeant has no place to exercise. He tried jumping in place and fell and broke his arm. He has post traumatic stress disorder. He is scared and he is ignored by his Commander In Chief. His mother sent a petition with over 100,000 signatures demanding the idiot in the White House call the President of Mexico and negotiate Andrew’s release. The idiot in the White House sent Mrs. Tahmooressi A FORM LETTER! I was read that stupid form letter by an intern at the office of Scott Peters.

    Only if YOU CALL AND DEMAND HIS RELEASE will it happen. Tie up the phone lines. We need to make 1000 calls a week. So far, 3 of you have agreed to call. I will call now twice a week, for that means we need another 995 of you calling weekly! Please think of this brave Marine as your son and make these calls. It might be best if you called your own Congressmen. I mentioned CA because I live in CA. Aren’t our CA representatives a miserable bunch!!!!


    President Obama:  (202) 456-1111
    Senator Barbara Boxer:  (202) 224-3553
    Senator Dianne Feinstein:  (202) 224-3841
    Representative of CA District 52, Scott Peters:  (202) 225-0508 (I told his representative that Scott was going to lose this coming close election because he is the closest to the border and he has done nothing that We The People want done - which is to represent our military.)
    Running AGAINST Scott Peters is Carl DeMaio:  (619) 786-8019. (I left a message as he does not have enough clout/money to have an intern. I said that if Carl would spend this coming election day standing at attention in honor of our Marine in Mexico, outside the prison in Mexico, with Greta from Fox News, he would swing the election. That is all he has to do. Go there and mean business.)
    Gov. Jerry Brown:  (916) 445-2841. As a governor, Brown welcomed the President of Mexico and promised to take more illegal children into our state. He did not mention one word about the welfare or release of the finest of Americans, Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.

  • Mark Steyn, told the truth in his book. The American culture lead by Hollywwood and the education system has corrupted and enslaved the minds of Americas youth. Freedom of thought loses when there is not a moral compass.
  • LOL @ Carol..."genetically can't get beyond anything they have to think too hard about". Isn't that the truth. How brain-damaged are people that still say they are "democrats" without fear or shame and how citizens out there still believe Obama/Obala and his crew are anything but what they fantasize them to be.  Liberalism is definitely a mental disorder !!
