Charlie Daniels: Leadership Void

Racial leaders who blame all their problems on outside influences are actually expounding the theory that their race cannot accomplish anything on their own and have to have help from an outside source. When they really should be blasting gangs, unwed teenage pregnancy, drugs, absentee fathers and violence and energetically promoting self-reliance, education and work ethic.

In my 77 years of experience on earth, I have never seen the scarcity of capable leadership as critical as it is today.

When someone speaks of leadership, most people’s minds go immediately to politics and there’s no doubt that the lack of qualified leaders reaches into the very top echelons of government, but the problem extends deeply into the social, moral and business world as well.

One of the greatest causes for the multiple divisions in America can be traced to lack of leadership. Social upheaval, gigantic bankruptcies leading to government bailouts, the slow demise of unions, the lax moral attitudes of many of the younger generation can be traced directly to lack of sensible, responsible leadership.

Politicians pandering to voting blocks, business leaders taking reckless chances with stockholder’s money, union officials making demands a company cannot meet and rabble rousing racial leaders who preach dependence rather than self reliance.

One of the prime roles of a leader is to appoint or hire personnel capable of handling autonomy, those with the savvy and common sense to know how far to go without asking the advice of their superiors and how far not to go on their own.

Frontpage’s 2013 Man of the Year: Ted Cruz

A Rasmussen poll places Cruz as the third most influential world leader after Obama and the Pope. Texas Republicans favor him for the top job and he took first place in the Value Voter Summit straw poll. Cruz ties Hillary Clinton in Colorado and beats her among independents.

Harry Reid called him a “laughingstock” and Grover Norqust’s men accused him of being a “terrorist.” The head of the Chamber Commerce suggested that he learn to sit down and be quiet. Nigeria demanded that he apologize and Chris Matthews accused him of wanting to kill Obama’s baby.

At September’s end, Jonathan Chait at New York Magazine gloated, “Someone tell Ted Cruz the ObamaCare War is Over.”

“Cruz can say, ‘Everyone in America knows Obamacare is destroying the economy,’ and quite plausibly believe it. News to the contrary has never penetrated his mental bunker,” Chait wrote suggesting that Cruz and his allies would end up like the Japanese soldiers on lost islands fighting for a lost cause.

Fast forward a few months and it’s ObamaCare that looks like the lost cause.

Feminist writer Camille Paglia speaks out AGAINST the loss of masculine virtues and its negative impact on society

The self-described ‘dissident feminist’ believes society is neutering boys of their maleness at a young age.

Our society is neutering boys of their maleness at a young age, while the lack of people with military experience in important positions is a recipe for disaster, claims Camille Paglia, the controversial lesbian author and social critic.

Self-described ‘dissident feminist’ Paglia, 66, believes that attempts to deny the biological distinctions between men and women is to blame for the much that is wrong with modern society.

‘What you’re seeing is how a civilization commits suicide’ she told the Wall Street Journal.

Paglia, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, is well known for her critical views on many aspects of modern culture, including feminism and liberalism.

She recently spoke out in support of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, supporting his right to express homophobic views.

‘In a democratic country, people have the right to be homophobic as well as they have the right to support homosexuality – as I one hundred percent do.

‘If people are basing their views against gays on the Bible, again, they have a right of religious freedom there.’ she told Laura Ingraham’s radio show last week.

Union Leader Janet Vrotsos is Vile

You disabled veterans are worthless and all should have died, shame on you for fighting in a republican war, you deserved to lose all you limbs and I hope all veterans lose their benefits. I hope you die a miserable death you worthless fake hero. You and your family will be a burden on tax payers for your entire life. (sic)

A story which is being widely reported about union leader Janet Vrotsos leaving the most vile message on a triple-amputee’s Facebook page would normally be pretty hard to believe – except the fact that she’s a union executive..

It all started with the escalation in words over the cutting of veterans’ benefits in the Murray/Ryan budget deal recently passed by Congress (shameful enough, right?), which has gotten out of control. But this is over-the-top, even for the left. Vrotsos actually leaves Air Force Sr. Airman Brian Kolfage Jr., a triple amputee and Iraq war veteran a post saying in part that; “You’re worthless burdens, deserve to lose limbs and die..” etc.
