In Defense of Elizabeth Warren…

Is it Xenophobia?

The Cherokee Nation has spoken:

“A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship. Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America,” Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said. “Sovereign tribal nations set their own legal requirements for citizenship, and while DNA tests can be used to determine lineage, such as paternity to an individual, it is not evidence for tribal affiliation” – Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr.

What Mr. Hoskin is refusing to accept is the Reality that Elizabeth Warren is simply an “Undocumented Cherokee”. Ms. Warren is here whether Mr. Hoskin and his Tribe, like it or not. Since she is already claiming Cherokee Heritage and has acted as a member in good standing of the Cherokee Nation for Decades it is only reasonable that the Cherokee Nation accept her and provide full rights and benefits as possessed by every Cherokee Tribe Member. I should remind Mr. Hoskin that Senator Warren has contributed greatly to the Tribe from her representation as a ‘Person of Color’ at Harvard to Cookbooks highlighting uniquely Native American Cuisine. Senator Warren has promoted the Tribes by personally excelling through a life of Socialist politics while positively absolutely and without question not capitalizing on her Native American Identity.

My message to Mr. Hoskin is as follows:

Dear Mr. Hoskin Jr.,

I hope the Sovereign Nations can pry themselves away from what civilized people would consider a 19th Century mindset.

The World is Not Flat, Mr. Hoskins.

Elizabeth Warren is Native American because she says she is. You must respect that.

Due Regards,
Chief


How much is a Ivy League degree worth?

I regularly read material from Ivy league types. All seem intelligent while many are brilliant and many are misguided, malevolent Elitists. (“Malevolent Elitist” is redundant…)  These people remind me why I drink.

I’ve started questioning the value assigned to having credentials from one of these Ivy League schools. Apparently I join a very large group of people who also do not think the ROI is very good.  It’s amusing that Leftists consider a degree from one of these institutions as ‘ridiculous’ when it’s held by someone they disagree with, as in George W. Bush. (And, Al Gore if you have any sense what so ever.)

But there is a very current example of this… Barack Obama.  I raise the example because President Obama cannot seem to identify Socialism.

This strikes me as astounding.

If I’m not mistaken, Mr. Obama has a Law degree from Harvard. He has been surrounded and has surrounded himself with Leftists his entire life.  It would seem he should be able to reasonably expect to have received a basic understanding of political philosophy by the time he was awarded his diploma, let alone a Juris Doctor. This being said, if I were the president I would be seriously angry and demanding my money back. I would also be yelling from the mountaintops what a waste of someone’s hard-earned dollars my degree was.

When President Obama can stand in front of the American people and, in his own mind, honestly assert that neither he nor his policies are Socialist in foundation, then he clearly is unable to identify the most basic differences in governing theory.

I feel sorry for him.  He seems like such a nice guy to be taken advantage of in such a terrible way.

This ruse perpetrated upon our President during his formal education also explains his apparent dismay that the Supreme Court might have concerns regarding his attempt to force Americans to do things.

I know that once you reach a certain level of power you run the risk of being surrounded by sycophants.  Thus I don’t think anyone around him would be willing to tell him directly he has no clothes…

I hope he reads this post.
