Bad Laws Made By Man Can Be Undone By Man




While reading a blog post in The Weekly Standard, we came across a piece written by columnist Irwin M. Stelzer In which he wrote about: World Bank president Robert Zoellick's trip to China. Upon his return, he spoke about the current world economic crisis.  Mr. Stelzer was most impressed by the point that Mr. Zoellick was attempting to make.  Stelzer writes:    He was making an important point: (about the global economy) The fault is not in our stars, but in ourselves. Our problems stem not from any intrinsic flaw in free market capitalism, nor from some historically determined collapse of Western economies, but from terrible policies -- made by man, and capable of being undone by man."


Mr. Ztelzer's words are the inspiration for today's Two Sisters From The Right opinion. Bad policies, indeed bad choices, are made by men* - quite often selfish, self-centered, egotistical, ambitious men who put themselves and their philosophy/ideology over that of the common good. Here in the United States of America we are living such a scenario right now. Americans haven't always made the best choices in choosing a president, but never have the majority of this country made so foolish a mistake as electing Barack Hussein Obama to the highest office in the land.


We are tired of trying to find the reasons why this man, with little or no experience in government, with no love or respect for the United States' traditions and history, let alone our Constitution, was elected. This is a man who charmed the populace into believing that our country needed changing and that the change would come about by electing a partially black man. They call it "White Guilt," but Barack Hussein Obama is as much a white man as he is a black man. The fact that he chooses to revere his black half and to condemn his white half as seen in this quote: " "My grandmother, who is white, is a typical person insofar as she’s suspicious of strangers of other races" is his own personal choice.


Some like to call anyone who disagrees with Barack Hussein Obama, "racists."   His race had nothing to do with our choice not to vote for him.  Nor did we feel that a black man should not be elected president.   Here in South Texas, GOP presidential candidate, Herman Cain, who is a black man, has a huge following, especially among the local Tea Party members. We believe that as a whole, most Americans have been, for some time, quite comfortable and accepting of people of other races and ethnicity.  The status changed when the "Race Card" reared its ugly head during Obama's campaign and subsequent election, setting race relations back several years. Can we regain the trust that has been lost during these last three years? It is as the quote above states, "made by man, and capable of being undone by man."


Those of us who were born before the civil rights movement happened can still remember incidents of blatant prejudice and discrimination. Much has been accomplished in the area of civil rights to level the playing field for all citizens to be treated equally and to have equal opportunities. It is up to an individual of any color to take advantage of the opportunities given, and to excel in whatever arena chosen. We can learn a lesson from our youngest generation who from the time they enter Kindergarten can see beyond the skin color and befriend another child. There really is no need to "teach diversity". Diversity training is a man-made interference into a transition that can and simply does occur naturally. Government interference with "Affirmative Action" laws wound up causing cries of discord and reverse discrimination.


The election of Barack Hussein Obama, simply because some thought that he could bring hope and change to a country that didn't need his brand of socialism is one of those decisions made by man that can only be corrected by man. We believe that the worst man made possible disaster that can happen to our country is to re-elect this man for all the wrong reasons.

Is Barack Hussein Obama the source of all that plagues our country right now? How simple it would be to say "Yes!" After all he has no problem blaming all the country's ills on "the previous administration." He does so without ever mentioning the input and involvement of the many Democrats who can be cited as being the ones whose involvement brought about any number of the financial crises that we now face.


The fact is that some of our problems stem from years back. In a current opinion editorial in the blog, The Spin Cycle, the editor writes that many of our problems with education began in the 1960s, "The truth is, we have a serious problem with our public school system" He goes on to say, "Today, our schools make absolutely no attempt to educate anyone. They see their goal as "socializing children" so they will be "better people." ........" This means that the important subjects are no longer reading, writing and arithmetic... but are now diversity, feminism, recycling and global warming." ........"We spend more money per child on education than any other nation in the world, and many third world countries get better results in their schools. Some might think spending more money will guarantee better results, but in this case most of the money was spent on higher wages and benefits for teachers who have strong unions here, and not on improving the education for children." It is a truly powerful essay, and one which proves once again that all that is wrong with our school systems is man-made and can only be corrected by man. (Click on any of the links to read the entire essay.)


As grandparents of young children the American education crisis is of deep concern to us. There is a solution to the problem that many ignore, it is simply called, parental involvement. American parents need to rise up and speak up. A powerful lobby is very effective, especially when its goal is to benefit the common good and not just a particular group. There are more parents in America than there are teacher union members, and parents, through their taxes, pay their salaries. We sisters were trained as teachers, and as such our focus was student success and student academic achievement.


There is no need to change a strong academic curriculum for one which emphasizes political correctness. American schoolchildren are not lab rats to be used in social experimentation. Parents must speak up and fight back. Those policies which now dominate our schools can be undone, but what is needed is strong, committed, vocal parents who will stand up to the unions and stand up to the government and demand quality education. We've seen entire school administrations back down to a strong parental lobby, it CAN be done.


The same can be said for Obamacare. Known by the euphemistically deceiving title of "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act," it was passed by Congress on March 21, 2010, and signed into federal law by President Barack Hussein Obama on March 23. This was the heretofore unforeseen legislation which began to socialize the American health care system. Obamacare has been discussed by both opponents and proponents of the law ad infinitum, and we will not launch into a discussion of it here. Our point in raising the topic at all is that most Americans feel that there are entirely too many objectionable demands in the bill, beginning with legislative mandates that require private citizens to purchase health insurance, and to fund other health related programs. Obamacare violates America's constitutional law by mandating the purchase of health insurance. Because of this clause, more than half the states have filed lawsuits against it. At this writing we are still awaiting ruling on various court decisions


Obamacare is a prime example of the principle that bad laws are made by men and can be undone by men. We pray that those who will make the decisions in these appeals are men who have studied the Constitution will wisely decide to undo this unsustainable and preposterous law.


Without being an attorney, one could easily write an entire manuscript on examples of bad policies and bad laws that are man-made. Many have been overturned by others. Today, though it is very apparent that we have strayed farther and farther away from the original vision of those who founded this great country. It is still astonishing to us, now, in the twenty first century, to read the words, of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and others who were part of the foundation of this great nation. It is astonishing because words written or spoken 235 years ago still make such amazing sense, and are applicable to our present day.


In order to avoid the tedious task of making bad laws, and then having to undo them, it would behoove those in government to remember these words by Alexander Hamilton, said in a speech in 1788.

"Here sir," he said, "the people govern."





*The use of the word "men" is inclusive of women as well.

Long.....but excellent! Scariest of all the points you made is the school situation...how teachers are focusing on socializing instead of educating. Not only is that detrimental to academic success, but it is also intrusive and presumptious. If I had school-age children today, I would be horrified at the thought of their exposure to values and ideals that are not my own. AND....I use the word "exposure" with a grain of salt. Exposure would be acceptable, but schools aren't just exposing children to different ideals. They are drilling a specific ideology that often clashes with what parents want their children to learn.

On another note.....while I agree that bad laws made by man can be undone by man, I just don't see it happening. Our Congressmen seem to have forgotten that their job is to represent the will of the people. Five-hundred and thirty-five politicians creating laws and making decisions for 300 million people can only work if the people can somehow make them understand that they are there to serve US....and not the other way around. With today's technology, it shouldn't be so hard, should it? Since the tediousness of snail mail and telephone calls has been replaced with the lightning speed of emails and faxes, we can easily communicate our thoughts to our representatives. However, that doesn't mean they will listen -- or even care -- what we have to say.

Our best chance at getting our country back is to wrest it away from the jaded, egotistical career politicians who are running it and put it in the hands of men who are committed to the welfare of the people instead of their own personal interests. BUT... even if we can get rid of the former, finding the latter will be like looking for a needle in a haystack.
