Bricks, Sticks or Straw? The Choice is Yours.

Over the past few weeks, whenever I’ve been at home in time to get some sweet little hugs and put my daughter to bed, she’s only wanted to read four stories–out of the bookcase full of books–before turning out the light and snuggling into her blankets with the stuffed animal du jour. The four books? “Doggies,” meaning Disney’s 101 Dalmatians; “piggies,” meaning a copy of The Three Little Pigs which was once my own; “hop-hop,” meaning Jane Johnson’s Are You Ready for Bed?, a delightful book about a little rabbit that just doesn’t want to go to sleep; or “moon,” meaning Goodnight Moon, the wonderful old standby by Margaret Wise Brown. Recently, however, my two-year-old has whittled down the list to a single favorite:

“Piggies, daddy,” she’ll say, once she’s into her pajamas and realizes that, for her, the day is just about done. “PIGGIES!!

And so we read.

For those of you who do not have children, those whose children are grown and do not remember, or those who simply have forgotten, The Three Little Pigs is about a trio of pig brothers who are cast out of the house by their pig mother to seek their fortunes on their own. Before they leave, however, mother pig warns her sons of the Big Bad Wolf, who “lives at the top of the hill and loves to eat little pigs.”

Upon reaching a fork in the road, the brothers go their separate ways. The first little pig, confronted with the dilemma of whether or not to build a proper house or frolic around and play all day, decides to build his house out of straw. He knows it’s not a good house or a strong house, but it doesn’t take him very long to build, using scissors and string, and that leaves him plenty of time to sing and dance and play for the rest of the day. The second little pig decides to build his house out of sticks, knowing that it may not be so strong, but the quick job allows him to sing and dance and play like his brother was doing. The third little pig, however, faces the same dilemma and decides to build a strong house – he installs a wood floor, a heavy wood door, and builds his walls and chimney out of bricks and mortar and blood and sweat and tears. A regular Bob Vila of the swine variety, it takes him a little while longer, but it is time well spent.

“Gosh, that took a long time,” the third little pig says, finally sitting and relaxing at the base of a tree stump. “But it’s a strong house, and now I have time to dance and play.”

The whole time, the three little pigs were being watched by the Big Bad Wolf, looking down upon them from his house at the top of the hill. The very next day, the hungry wolf comes a-knocking at the first little pigs’ door, demanding entry. While initially defiant, the first little pig has little choice but to run like hell to his brother’s house of sticks when the wolf, a jazz saxophonist when he’s not eating pigs or thinking about eating pigs, puffs his cheeks like Charlie Parker and blows that house of straw right down. Next, the Big Bad Wolf dons a sheep skin and approaches the second little pig’s house of sticks and, using a sweet voice to disguise his own, asks to come in. The second pig sees through the disguise, noticing the wolf’s red, angry eyes from behind the sheep’s skin, but as the wolf puffs his cheeks and blows down the house of sticks, he has little choice but to high-tail it–along with his nancy-boy brother with the blown-down straw house–to the third little pig’s house of bricks. Subsequently, the wolf knocks on the door of the brick house belonging to the third little pig. He’s hungry, and knows that only one more house separates him from a plate full of tasty bacon.

But the third little pig, confident in the work he put into the construction of his sturdy brick home, knows that he and his fruity little brothers are safe from harm.

“Go ahead and blow,” says the third little pig. “Blow your head right off, wolf.”

So he huffs and he puffs and he puffs and he huffs and he just … can’t … blow … that … brick … house … down. And when he tries to shimmy down the chimney like Santa Claus in pork rind withdrawal, the pigs are ready for him with a pot of boiling water in the fireplace below. At the end of the day, the Big Bad Wolf cannot sit right for a week and, needless to say, doesn’t quite have a taste for ham anymore.

Thirty years ago today, I was born in what is now Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Burbank, California (and I have the birth certificate to prove it). At that time, the sitting president of the United States, Jimmy “Dhimmi” Carter, had approximately a 30 percent approval rating, and America was, much like today, staring down the barrel of an energy and economic crisis.

Thankfully, Jimmy Carter went home to the peanut farm and, under President Ronald Reagan, America once again established the tradition of doing the right thing no matter how difficult.

Today, however, we seem to have forgotten the lessons of time gone by, and I cannot help but to think about our forgetfulness each and every time I read The Three Little Pigs to my daughter before she goes to bed. Today, we take shortcuts so as to return to our blissfully ignorant ways as soon as possible. Today, we cater to those who require political correctness and ask for handouts and petition government to ensure that power is kept as far away from the people as possible, mostly because it is difficult and unpopular to do otherwise.

Despite, for example, the economic, social and security problems caused by Ronald Reagan’s mistake in 1986 of providing blanket amnesty and the flood of illegal immigration which followed, we still do not address the problems faced by a nation without secure borders. So long as we refuse to lock the back door while sending our bravest and best men and women to fight and bleed and die halfway across the world in the sands of Iraq and mountains of Afghanistan in the name of protecting our front door, we are refusing to do the difficult and correct thing. We are building the structure of our national security out of straw, and buttressing the foundation of our healthcare system and economy with sticks. We must shut the borders to illegal immigrants, enforce the laws on the books, and send those who break them back to the countries from which they came. It may not be easy and it may not be popular to tell young mothers and their children here in the United States, the land of freedom and opportunity, to go back to their lives in Mexico and beyond, but it is the right thing to do. Sealing the border, closing the loopholes, eliminating the magnets and returning discretion to the law enforcement officials who stand guard and protect us from invasion in the dark of night — that is the way to build our house out of bricks and mortar and blood and sweat and tears. That is the way to do the right thing, and by resisting the temptation to build our house out of sticks and straw so we can push these issues to the back of our mind and return to our blissful ignorance, we’re doing the difficult thing and ensuring that the big, bad wolf will stay outside of our house where he belongs, and stay out there for good.

With regard to the economy, we are taking taxpayer funds and bailing out companies deemed “too large to fail,” long-term consequences be damned. By devaluing our currency and setting the dangerous precedent of government intervention, by privatizing gains and socializing losses, we are rebuilding the foundation of the American economy with sticks and straw while the rest of the world watches from their houses abroad, just waiting for the next Big Bad Wolf to come and blow our house of sticks right down. We’re not doing the difficult thing, we’re not doing the right thing. We’re doing the easy thing, and as a result we are selling not only our banking institutions, not only our American values, but our national sovereignty and, worse yet, our very souls. Instead of doing the hard work now, instead of taking the time and feeling the pain and making the sacrifice necessary to build our new house out of bricks and mortar and blood and sweat and tears, we’re once again taking the easy way out, rebuilding our house out of straw and spit so we can just put it behind us and go back to our blissfully ignorant singing and dancing and playing the day away.

This election cycle, with its fruition looming just a little more than two weeks away, has been the most hotly contested of my lifetime. We’re at a point where I would imagine that more Americans now are more involved than they’ve ever been, their curiosity and willingness to learn bolstered by 24-hour news cycles and watercooler debates alike. Still, the difficult thing to do, the right thing to do, would be to get involved to the point where there are no surprises, where everything is known by as many people as possible. For the most part, however, the American voting public doesn’t want to do the difficult thing, the right thing, and would rather leave the hard work and due diligence to the mainstream media, the very same group who ripped apart the personal life of the ideologically different Joe Wurzelbacher the Plumber, investigating more in 24 hours a citizen who dared to ask a question of a presidential candidate than they had done in 24 months to the candidate in question, a man who has raised $605 million for his campaign despite refusal to fully address questions into his background and circle of friends. The winner of this presidential election will face down a domestic and global economic crisis, a continued threat from radical Islam, an uppity and dangerously nostalgic Russia, a fast-rising Red China, a rapidly deteriorating culture here at home, and not to mention will be in command of two distinct battlefronts in the Global War on Terror. Instead of building our house with brick and mortar and blood and sweat and tears, however, instead of demanding that our potential leaders be completely vetted in the way our own founding fathers would have wanted, we trust the biased, agenda-setting media to do it for us. We take their word as unequivocal truth. We willingly build our house out of sticks and straw, just daring for any number of big, bad wolves to come a-huffin and a-puffin.

It’s easy to hide behind political correctness, but difficult to ask tough questions amidst cries of racial intolerance. It’s easy to hide behind the new environmentalism, a front for global socialism, but difficult to make the tough decisions and set the ball rolling toward energy independence. It’s easy to blissfully sing and dance and frolic our way through life, but difficult to address the threat of fundamentalist Islam and acknowledge the difference between good and evil in the world. It’s easy to take from those who have made the most of their opportunity to provide handouts to those who have not, but difficult to understand that rewarding hard work—and vice versa—is better for us all in the long run.

Doing the right thing is rarely simple, rarely free of second-guesses and crises of conscience. Our founders fought and died in a desperate attempt to gain independence from tyrannical rule, and our fathers and grandfathers shed blood and lost lives in the mud and trenches of Europe and the South Pacific in order to preserve that freedom. Doing the right thing is rarely simple. Doing the right thing, however, is brutally important in the world we live in today. It may sound wonderful that the government will provide for cheaper college educations, free universal healthcare, new jobs for everyone and windfall taxes on profitable businesses that somehow will not affect those at the other end of the stream of commerce, but there is a difference between what sounds good and what sounds easy — and what is right.

I want my daughter to be able to grow up in and know the America that I grew up in and fondly remember. I want her to be rewarded for being successful, not just given a trophy for participation. I want her United States of America to be strong, economically, fundamentally and otherwise, and I am prepared to do the difficult thing, make the difficult decisions, weather the difficult sacrifices, and rebound and learn from failure after failure in an attempt to foster eventual success.

It is imperative that America revert back to the tradition of building its house out of bricks and mortar and blood and sweat and tears. It is imperative that Americans once again realize that sacrifice and hard times today result in prosperity and security tomorrow. Like it or not, the Big Bad Wolf is out there, he’s hungry, and he’s not alone. Perhaps if we remain ever conscious now, perhaps if we work hard now and make the necessary sacrifices now, then our children and grandchildren will be able to spend their days singing and dancing and frolicking in the greatest nation the world has ever known.

“Who’s afraid of the Big, Bad Wolf? The Big, Bad Wolf? The Big, Bad Wolf? Who’s afraid of the Big, Bad Wolf, tra-la-la-la-laaaaa…”

    This is from another blog and I felt the need to share it. The Big Bad Wolf is in place and we've got to get that pot boiling NOW!
    _____________________

    On Jan. 10, 1963, Congressman Albert S. Herlong Jr. of Florida read a list of 45 Communist goals into the Congressional Record. The list was derived from researcher Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Communist.” These principles are well worth revisiting today in order to gain insights into the thinking and strategies of much of our so-called liberal elite.

    1. U.S. should accept coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

    2. U.S. should be willing to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

    These encapsulate the Kennan Doctrine, which advocated for the “containment” of communism. Establishment figures supporting the amoral containment policy at least implicitly worked with the communists in scaring the wits out of the American people concerning atomic war.

    President Ronald Reagan undid the doctrine when he took an aggressive stand against the Evil Empire by backing freedom fighters from around the world that were struggling against the left-wing communist jackboot. As a result, the Soviet Union and its satellites imploded, a considerable and unexpected setback to the international communist edifice.

    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament by the U.S. would be a demonstration of “moral strength.”

    The nuclear freeze advocates supported a freeze on American nuclear development only. Rarely were Soviet nukes or those of other nations mentioned in their self-righteous tirades. The same advocates now call for reducing American military might, claiming that there is something immoral about America preserving its military pre-eminence in the world.

    4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

    Today, there are calls to end the embargo on the slave island of Cuba, there were complaints about the embargo against Iraq, and the U.S., not Saddam Hussein, was blamed for the suffering of the Iraqi people. Would they have advocated for free trade with Hitler and his National Socialist regime?

    5. Extend long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

    6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

    Such aid and trade over decades contributed greatly to the left-wing communist liquidation of over 100 million people worldwide, according to the well-documented “Black Book of Communism.”

    This aid and trade marks a shameful chapter in American history. Without the aid and trade, the left-wing international communist behemoth would have imploded on its own rot a lot sooner and umpteen millions would have been saved from poverty, misery, starvation and death.

    7. Grant recognition of Red China and admission of Red China to the U.N.

    Not only did President Jimmy Carter fulfill this goal but he also betrayed America’s allies in Nicaragua, El Salvador, Iran, Afghanistan, Angola and elsewhere.

    8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the Germany question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

    9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the U.S. has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

    10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

    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.

    There are still American intellectuals, and elected members of Congress, who dream of an eventual one world government and who view the U.N., founded by communists such as Alger Hiss, the first secretary-general, as the instrument to bring this about.

    World government was also the dream of Adolf Hitler and J.V. Stalin. World government was the dream of Osama bin Laden and the 9/11 hijackers.

    12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

    13. Do away with loyalty oaths.

    14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

    While the idea of banning any political party runs contrary to notions of American freedom and liberty, notions that are the exact opposite of those held by the left-wing communists themselves, nevertheless these goals sought to undermine the constitutional obligation of Congress to investigate subversion. The weakening of our government’s ability to conduct such investigations led to the attack of 9/11.

    It is entirely proper and appropriate for our government to expect employees, paid by the American taxpayer, to take an oath of loyalty.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the U.S.

    In his book “Reagan’s War,” Peter Schweizer demonstrates the astonishing degree to which communists and communist sympathizers have penetrated the Democratic Party. In his book, Schweizer writes about the presidential election of 1979.

    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions, by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

    This strategy goes back to the founding of the American Civil Liberties Union by Fabian Socialists Roger Baldwin and John Dewey and Communists William Z. Foster and Elizabeth Gurley Flynn among others.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for Socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

    18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

    19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations that are under Communist attack.

    The success of these goals, from a communist perspective, is obvious. Is there any doubt this is so?

    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV & motion pictures.

    22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all form of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings,” substituting shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.

    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. ” Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

    24.Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural and healthy.”

    This is the Gramscian agenda of the “long march through the institutions” spelled out explicitly: gradual takeover of the “means of communication” and then using those vehicles to debauch the culture and weaken the will of the individual to resist.

    Today those few who still have the courage to advocate public morality are denounced and viciously attacked. Most Americans are entirely unwitting regarding the motives behind this agenda.

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

    This has been largely accomplished through the communist infiltration of the National Council of Churches, Conservative and Reform Judaism, and the Catholic seminaries.

    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state”

    Replacing belief in the creator with belief in the earthly man-controlled 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.

    And replace our nation of “laws, not men” with royal decree emanating from appointed judges and executive orders. Replace elected officials with bureaucrats.

    30. Discredit the American founding fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of “the big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

    Obliterating the American past, with its antecedents in principles of freedom, liberty and private ownership is a major goal of the communists then and now.

    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture – education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

    Public ownership of the means of production, the core principle of totalitarianism.

    33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

    34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

    35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

    Turn America into a socialist police state.

    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand or treat.

    The Soviets used to send “social misfits” and those deemed politically incorrect to massive mental institutions called gulags. The Red Chinese call them lao gai. Hitler called them concentration camps.

    39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose communist goals.

    Psychiatry remains a bulwark of the communist agenda of fostering self-criticism and docility.

    40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

    Done! The sovereign family is the single most powerful obstacle to authoritarian control.

    41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

    Outcome-based education, values clarification or whatever they’re calling it this year.

    42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special interest groups should rise up and make a “united force” to solve economic, political or social problems.

    This describes the dialectical fostering of group consciousness and conflict, which furthers the interests of authoritarianism.

    43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

    The results of this successful campaign are increasingly obvious in the world today.

    44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

    45. Repeal the Connally Reservation so the U.S. cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.

    This would mark a complete subversion of our Constitution and an end to representative sovereign government as we know it, which is the whole idea.

    Jeff,
    You articulate so adeptly the frustration many of us are feeling.
    It is difficult to watch a collective of Americans from all walks of life act as if they are in a state of dissociative fugue. They support a candidate who has no experience, no track record, and a whole lot of explaining to do. As long as the message they hear is easily digested, pleasant to listen to, they are on board! Mr Obama is dangerously, a narcissist and an interloper who will tear apart the American Constitution while simultaneously swearing to uphold it! He has imposed on the good will of the American people, and he will perpetrate the most insidious of crimes upon them. He must be stopped! Americans will have to take responsibility, and make the hard decision if they indeed want the good governance they say they do. If not..they, and unfortunately, the rest of us will have to face reality sooner rather than later, and albeit, it will not be a pretty sight!

  3. John Galt says:

    Obama as a Muslim communist has only one goal other than becoming absolute dictator of the U.S.

    Is only other goal is to destroy the American economy in order to pave the way for the eventually replacmeent of the U.S. Constitution by Sharia law.

  4. sgrant says:

    This may not count for much, but I’m going out on a public limb to say that Obama will not make it to the Oval Office. Call it a “hunch”, but that’s the only card I’m showing. Take hope America, even if conventional wisdom flies in the face of hope right now. Bambam will not be our next president. ‘Nuff for now…

    “At the end of the day, the Big Bad Wolf cannot sit right for a week and, needless to say, doesn’t quite have a taste for ham anymore.”

    In the original fairy tale, the wolf falls into the pot of boiling water and is killed. That ending was considerred too harsh for little children…and that was the beginning of the end.

    Many of the traditional fairy tales were moralistic and had harsh endings for the bad guys. In Little Red Riding Hood, the woodsman saves her by killing the wolf with his axe.

    The beginning of the end began when we stopped telling our children that death is the end of life, we all die eventually, that life can be cruel but a good life is rewarded in the afterlife, and children began believing that this life is all there is, so clutch it close and to take it away is the ultimate cruelty.

    suek,

    You’re ever so welcome! I was reading yours and was nodding the whole time. I’ve complained for years that they’ve butchered children’s fairy tales. I noticed it 20 years ago. That was when they decided (for us) that cartoons, like Tom and Jerry were “too violent”. The farmer’s wife can’t chop off their tails with a butcher knife and the little man with the little gun filled with lead, lead, lead is no more in the fairy tale book at all!

    Reading that post I re-posted here just got all over me. I’ve heard Bortz talk about ADD has never been proven to exist and I’ve always thought so myself. What better way to instill about 4 of those in the list at once! Kids and adults can have chemical imbalances that cause behavior problems but this “drug the kids because we’ve let them take paddling out of the schools” is BS! If people would listen to their hearts about what to do for their children instead of letting the communist agenda fool them into thinking they need “therapy” for everything then families would be stronger and that, possibly, alone could destroy their plans.

    WE have to take control of every aspect of our lives starting from this day forward!

    >>…but the version of the Three Little Pigs I have was actually printed in 1958, I think…>>

    I believe it, but it started before that…in the 30s and 40s. Look at goldie's list…that was _written_ in '63. Look at the timeframe that Kruschev banged his shoe on the table at the UN and said that "our grandchildren will bury yours"…he knew that the plan was well under way by that time.

    I had a teacher who told us in the mid-50s (yes…I'm that old!) that the communists would use sex to undermine authority in the US as the first step in establishing the State as the supreme authority, because sex was the strongest drive we have, and destroying the authority of the family and the church would take that powerful drive.

    And I've seen it happen.

    A belated Happy Birthday Jeff. You remind me of my daughter, 34, single, and a pediatric oncologist at Univ of San Diego Med Ctr. A lot more mature and stable than most 34 year olds. A staunch conservative like her old man.

    Obama is more than most people know. He is not just a lefty senator. He is the legendary enemy from within our forefathers warned about. He is the ultimate follower of Alinsky. He is the epitomy of socialstic fascism. He means nothing of what he says, and has only one purpose – the total subjugation of the people, wealth, capabilities, and superiority of all that constitutes America under his boot heel of tyranny. He is an avid supporter of radical Islam in Kenya and would be the western caliph if asked.

    The silent majority will, I believe, be his downfall.

    If not, and he is elected, it will fall to the military to honor their oath to defend the Constitution from the domestic enemy.

    Onward, Jeff, Onward.
