The Wussified Generation My grandparents were legal immigrants - marginally schooled, but deep in faith, work ethic and love for their adopted America. They were strong, and developed character in my parents - who in turn drilled it into us children.
We were poor but happy. We lived in a multi-ethnic neighborhood, and so my playmates were "diverse," including blacks and Latinos. The KKK was still active, and nativists abounded. Their ethnic slurs were disgusting.
But we were never intimidated. We were strong, and viewed our denigrators as intellectual dwarfs whom we would someday bypass in reputation and self-respect. And we did, due to our determination as well as our parents' commitment to our education. We assimilated well, accomplished much, and now give back to the community. We thank our parents - members of the Greatest Generation. But times have changed, and we now witness the Wussified Generation. Our universities have become daycare centers for emotionally fragile uber-children who cannot deal with conflict or disappointment.
These wimps need "safe spaces" and counseling in the event of "micro-aggressions" or other intrusions from the real world. They need speech codes and dis-invitations of those who would deliver narratives counter to those "authorized" by their groupthink pied pipers. Failing in this, they count on shout-downs, disruptions and other such tantrums - led by their own brainwashed bullies.
Unfortunately, academia's puerile hypersensitivity has spread into the public body politic - witness the "adult" apoplexy following our recent presidential election.
To them we say: Stop being wusses! Grow up!
Gene Dolecki Orig. unedited version of "Letters from our readers" in the Sarasota Herald.
President Trump meets with over two dozen members of the National Association of Attorneys General, (NAAG) which is comprised of states' top law enforcement officials.
The president posed for a group photo in the East Room and saluted the "great people" posing behind him.
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, a longtime Trump ally who served on his transition team, stood next to the president and thanked him for his kind words.
The 2017 INAUGURATION was the game winning "point after" the November election. It capped what was our final chance to preserve our children's and our grand-children's future. Let there be no misunderstanding the 2016 election had to have a conservative outcome or it would have been our country's 'Crossing the Rubicon'.
In addition to a GOP presidential win with a majority in the Senate and House, the Republicans now dominate state government, with 32 legislatures and 33 governors. Those 32 states cover 61 percent of the U.S. population! Details Here
President Trumps 18 minute inaugural speech can be summarized in these 700 words:
"Todays ceremony has very special meaning because today we are not mearly transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington DC and giving it back to you the people.
For too long, a small group in our Nations Capitol has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered while the jobs left and the factories closed. The Establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.
.......In America we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving. We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining, but never doing anything about it. The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action......."

"The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so." - Ronald Reagan
Wouldn't it be interesting, if at some point during his Presidential campaign Donald Trump asked, Oh, by the way has anyone in Washington DC ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952? Here are the historic facts that would seem to indicate that many, if not most, of the people we elect to work for us in Washington DC do NOT have the slightest idea of what laws already exist in OUR country.
After several terrorist incidents were carried out in the United States, Donald Trump was severely, criticized for suggesting that the U.S. should limit or temporarily suspend the immigration of certain ethnic groups, nationalities, and even people of certain religions (Muslims). The criticisms condemned such a suggestion as, among other things, being Un-American, dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous and racist. Congressmen and Senators swore that they would never allow such legislation, and our illustrious President called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional.
As Gomer Pyle would say, "Well, Surprise, Surprise!" It seems that the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on several occasions. Continued here -
McCarran-Walter Act 1952
Muslims Still Learning to Fly at Venice Airport! -S.E. A recent meeting of the Sarasota Patriots opened up with mention of the many Patriot Organizations (Tea Party too) that have disbanded since the election of Donald Trump. The "we won" feeling was in the air, we've done our job. - WRONG!
At the same meeting waiting in the wings was our friend and guest speaker Usama Dakdok. Taking the podium after such remarks had him a bit riled. His thoughts, Trumps election minimally bought us some time to focus on the ongoing problem of Islam. All one has to do is is look into the demographics of Muslim growth in Europe and the not far behind US. Also, ask yourself why are the Muslims taking flight lessons at the Venice.
In addition to the student pilots attending flight school, Nezar Hamze the CEO and Regional Operations Director for CAIR-Florida was appointed to Deputy in the Broward County Sheriff's Office. Over the past months, Hamze has used his position as a Deputy Sheriff to go into radical mosques throughout the state and teach the congregations how to use guns properly and how to obtain government grants for security systems. Then consider the 30+ Muslim Jihad training camps shere in our country. What the hell is going on! Hopefully this will change under Trump.
So while we are following Trumps reversing the damage done by Obama, we will be keeping an eye on Islam and updating our
Muslim Page weekly.
Crossing the Rubicon -S.E. Thanks to Barack Obama's purposeful intent we are that close.... His oversight of our economic ills, divisiveness amongst Americans, moral decline, creation of new sexual clasifications, P.C. run amuck and deterioration of the peoples military, are all part of Obama's intended and calculated legacy. Our country's one time greatness is gone with fundamental freedoms lost.
It's called Communism, "You must be kidding". Communism is dead. It hasn't been around since The Berlin Wall came down in 1989 and the The Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 and on August 24, Mikhail Gorbachev officially dissolved the Communist Party. - WRONG!
In 1992 A communist strategy meeting (for the US) was held at the University of California Berkeley, for the sole purpose of updating their objectives originally proposed in 1963.
America was clearly warned over 50 years ago on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives about the Marxist agenda that has been systematically infused into the fabric, foundation, and functions of the nation by the adherents of communism in America and later under the guise of Progressive Democrats. That warning came from a courageous Florida Congressman, (Sydney Herlong Jr., who spent 20 years in Congress as a conservative Democrat) who read into the congressional record the 45 goals of the communists operating covertly toward the socialization our nation, published in the Deland, Florida newspaper and elsewhere.
Primary targets were determined. Family, Free Enterprise, Morality (by/ censorship) and Environmental. At the same meeting the adopted the goals of the "Naked Communist" by Cleon Skousen (1970) were set up as their preamble. There are 45 items in total in different stages of accomplishment. You will be shocked.
You are about to read a partial list of those 45 goals that found their way down the halls of our great Capitol back in 1963. As you read this, 54 years later, you should be upset if not angered by the events that have played themselves out, most of which during the administration of Barack Obama. If this doesn't unnerve you, nothing will.
The Complete list with documentation is linked at the bottom.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces.
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
15. Capture one of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current progressive propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
19. Use student riots to foment publicity.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. Eliminate all patriotic sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

Yes, President Trump has been living up to his campaign promises, yet there are three, that so far, little has been said and hopefully will be coming to the forefront soon.
1) Make English our official language.
2) Bring back "Dont ask dont tell" for the millitary.
3) The often spoken about 28th amendment: "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States."
Sarasota Patriot Petition to our President. Added to regularly. Donald, How about some Tort Reform:
The United States has 5% of the world's population and 66% of the world's lawyers! Tort (Legal) reform legislation has been introduced in congress several times in the last several years to limit punitive damages in ridiculous lawsuits such as spilling hot coffee on yourself and suing the establishment that sold it to you and also to limit punitive damages in huge medical malpractice lawsuits. This legislation has continually been blocked from even being voted on by the Democrat Party. When you see that 97% of the political contributions from the American Trial Lawyers Association go to the Democrat Party, you can realize who is responsible for our medical and product costs being so high!
Of the Total, the 115th Congress, according to the Congressional Research Service breaks down, 170 members of the House and 60 members of the Senate are lawyers. Breaking it down by party, there are 91 Republicans and 139 Democrats in Congress who list themselves as "lawyer". The medical and real estate professions follow.
