COMMON: COURSE; SECOND RATE—FALLING BELOW ORDINARY STANDARDS*

*Miriam Webster Definition of Common

I Disagree With Many Patriots, Led by Sean Hannity, That the “Poet,” Common, Should Not Have Been Invited to the White House.

The “poet,” Common, has been the definition of common (EXAMPLE). Among a string of common RAPS (see definition in headline), Common idolizes cop killer, jail breaker and Cuban exile living Assata Shakur Chesimard.

Unlike Common, who only celebrates lawlessness and hatred; and unlike Jeremiah Wright who only celebrates and incites

lawlessness and hatred, President Obama, who held the “Night of Poetry,” is the definition of lawlessness and hatred and contemptuousness. A sample of the evidence:

  • Re: Chrysler bankruptcy, CBS NEWS, may 7, 2009:A normal bankruptcy filing would be straightforward. Senior creditors get paid 100 cents on the dollar. Everyone else gets in line.But President Obama and his allies don’t want that to happen. So they interfered on behalf of unions (the junior creditors) and publicly upbraided the senior creditors who were asserting their contractual rights and threatening to head to bankruptcy court.Last week Mr. Obama lambasted them as “a small group of speculators” who “endanger Chrysler’s future by refusing to sacrifice like everyone else.”
  • The Obama National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) informed Boeing that the company must not build their plant in South Carolina. They must build it in Washington State or not at all. (No word on when it’ll actually end up in China.)
  • Of course Obamacare was scheduled to began this year and slide into effect over a period years. But what to do when a Federal court rules the law is unconstitutional? Ignore it. What if you want to take action but it is not allowed by the law? Waivers for thug buddies? Do it by fiat!
  • The two bit thug President is ruling by fiat:  

We have fun over an entertainer called Common (Course; Second rate—falling below ordinary standards) brought to the White House by a third rate President setting the worst record in history. Let us be serious about what we have let happen to our country and set a new course—each of us for ourselves and for the country. Let us show the world America is an exceptional country—a shining city on a hill—because she has UNCOMMON PEOPLE showing the way.

A couple of years ago, a man of true character and an outstanding football coach, Tony Dungy, co-authored, UNcommon, a book to inspire readers to find their path to significance.

Dungy’s title came from his college football coach, Cal Stoll, as he challenged the 1973 class (Dungy’s) of incoming freshman players at the University of Minnesota. Stall said:

“Success is uncommon, therefore not to be enjoyed by the common man. I’m looking for uncommon people.”

America needs UNcommon men and women to step forward. America needs you and me. My commitment: to do all I can each day to help see that my grandchildren’s children have the same opportunities and freedom my children have had so far enjoyed. What about you?

We’ll need to be right in our core values (virtues). Dungy argues for these:

  • Character
  • Honesty and Integrity
  • Humility and Stewardship
  • Courage

Let us be certain as “We the People” act to restore that Shining City on a Hill, that we secure those with UNcommon virtues for the Presidency and every office in Government.  Let us commit to restore a White House wher “Common” is out of place—unthinkable.

Let us all, men and women alike, be inspired as we do the work of restoration, by these words by Dean Alfange:

An American’s Creed

I do not choose to be a common man
It is my right to be uncommon…
If I can. I seek opportunity… Not security.

I do not wish to be a kept citizen,
Humbled and dulled by having the state to dream and build, to
Fail and succeed.

I refuse to barter incentive for a dole.
I prefer the challenges of life to the
Guaranteed existence; the thrill of
Fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia.

I will not trade freedom for beneficence
Nor my dignity for a hand out. I will
Never cower before any master nor bend
to any threat.

It is my heritage to stand erect,
proud, and unafraid; to think and act for
myself; enjoy the benefits of my
creations; and to face the world boldly
and say, “This I have done with my own hand,
I am a man. I am an American.
