Multiculturalism and English First

Jul 26, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

imageTo become part of the fabric of this society and its melting pot, you have to learn English. It is illogical to refuse adopting the language of the majority – there are too many missed opportunities and self-marginalization in a society where the sky is the limit.

If your goal is to reject 235 years of U.S. history and culture by changing it into your vision of Latin hood, then Spanish-only barrios make sense. There is also the option of going back where you came from if this country’s customs, language, religion, and culture offend you.

The Non-Energy Generating Department of Energy and the Smart Grid

Jul 25, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

imageIf you ask Americans what the Department of Energy does, the majority will tell you, they are tasked with generating electricity and other forms of energy. The real mission of the DOE is quite different.

The Department of Energy was formed after the oil crisis on August 8, 1977 by Jimmy Carter who signed The Department of Energy Organization Act of 1977. It began operations on October 1, 1977. The DOE operates 34 science laboratories.

Sustainable Health: Are You Ready to Be Forced into Health Prevention

Jul 19, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

I was greeted today at the doctor’s office by a full waiting room, reminiscent of communist polyclinics. It was almost three hours before I saw the doctor for less than five minutes. He was unfocused and hurried.

Six months ago, the wait was fifteen minutes and the doctor was relaxed and had plenty of time to spend with his patients. I asked him why such a long wait and hurry. He rolled his eyes and said, “New Obama care regulations and compliance.”

On June 10, 2010, the President signed an Executive Order creating the National Prevention, Health Promotion, and Public Health Council.

Democrats import illegal voters with communicable diseases

Jul 16, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

America was built on the backs, hands, and minds of legal immigrants. We all came from somewhere else, except the Native Americans. We fled from religious persecution, communist tyranny, oppressive monarchies and regimes, legal entanglements, murder raps, theft, moral and financial responsibility to others.

We longed for the lure of riches and unbound freedom, but most of all, we desired the opportunity to be better off than our fathers and ancestors.

Debut of Made-in-China Social Security Checks

Jul 15, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

The total federal budget for 2012 is $3.68 trillion. The interest on debt is $242 billion. The rest constitutes mandatory and discretionary spending.

Discretionary spending refers to the budget appropriated each year. The discretionary budget is one third of the federal budget. Congress directly sets the level of discretionary spending ($1.24 trillion) and can choose to increase or decrease any programs.

Who Controls the Price of Oil?

Jul 11, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

imageMost people do not understand what drives the price of oil but readily accept the explanation pushed by this administration that it is the unbounded greed of oil companies and their “fat cat owners.” Oil companies are publicly traded and many Americans and other foreign nationals or entities can own stock or bonds in these firms.

Most economists agree that the oil industry is an oligopoly, a market dominated by a few sellers, synonymous in developed countries with “big business.” An insidious form of oligopoly, which dominates the oil industry, is the cartel. The cartel’s firms join forces to control production, sale, and the price of oil.

The heartbreak of the last Space Shuttle flight

Jul 9, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

The last shuttle flight took off majestically with a plume of fire, disappearing into the clouds within forty seconds into its last man-made exploration, perhaps a fitting metaphor for its meteoric rise and fall. The crew consisted of three men and a woman, a precautionary move in case technical difficulties stranded them in space. It would cost the United States $63 million for each astronaut that the Russian Soyuz would return to earth. We have become mere passengers, taking a back seat to Russia’s leading role and military ambitions in cosmos.

Citizen U.S.A. The Reality

Jul 7, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

My American citizenship was an arduous journey, years in the making. It took mountains of paperwork on both sides of the Atlantic. Papers had to be translated from and into English, notarized, fiscally stamped, taxed, and approved. Appointments had to be made with various officials and officers of the law.

Security Police interrogations and screenings were performed.  Were you ever a Communist, how much debt did you have, did you have a savings account, did you have a job, who was going to support you, who was going to pay my medical bills, did I speak English, did I pass the American Government test, was I literate, and who was the president. And the questions never stopped until the American government was sure that I would not be a burden on the American taxpayers and would be a contributing citizen to this wonderful republic.

Islam’s Non-Existent Contribution to America

Jul 4, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

imageThe Alexandrian Library in Cairo was accidentally set on fire during Julius Caesar’s brief campaign in Egypt in 48 B.C. One of the scholars who worked at the Alexandrian Library was a woman named Hypatia, born in 370 A.D., the daughter of the mathematician Theon of Alexandria. She instructed students on Plato, Aristotle, Pythagoras, and other Greek philosophers. She was regarded as a pagan. One day, she was dragged from her chariot, stripped, and flayed alive with clam shells.

Since When are July 4th Parades Right Wing

Jul 2, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

imageWho can object to a patriotic parade but an irrational, anti-American progressive from Harvard who finds somehow that a 4th of July parade is a political stunt aimed at garnering new converts to the Republican Party?

David Yanagizawa-Drott published his three key findings in a recent Harvard Kennedy School of Government study:

Part time profs now want in on unionization

Jun 30, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

I never liked reading the Washington Post because it is exclusively a leftist paper. However, there are views that are important to ponder in order to stay informed of the disastrous direction our country is being forced towards by a minority of Americans who lust to live in socialist Europe. I wonder why the left “suffers” in our “socially unjust” country when we would gladly buy them a one-way ticket to the communist paradise of their choice.

No Child Left Inside Act, Agenda 21 in the classroom

Jun 28, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

On June 21, 2011, the Maryland State Board of Education proudly announced that students must be environmentally literate before they can graduate from high school. Each child must receive a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary environmental education aligned with the Maryland State Environmental Literacy Standards.

Redistribution of Wealth

Jun 25, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

The Communist Party confiscated my grandparents’ and my parents’ land, homes, guns, jewelry, gold coins, paintings, wedding pictures, clocks, watches, bonds, stocks, tools, savings, and anything of value. They left my grandparents homeless. Grandpa and grandma had to build a barn-like structure made of mud and straw bricks, which they called home. My grandparents refused to relocate from the rural area into grey concrete apartment cubicles in the city. My parents chose the one bedroom apartment with its low rent, subsidized by the government.

White House Executive Order on Rural Council

Jun 23, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

On June 9, 2011, few people paid attention to the Executive Order establishing the White House Rural Council. It was several days before people started inquiring, prompted by a few articles on Agenda 21, including mine.

This piece of legislation from the Oval Office establishes unchecked federal control into rural America in education, food supply, land use, water use, recreation, property, energy, and the lives of 16% of the U.S. population.

America, the Sinking Titanic

Jun 22, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

The Democrat Party is the proverbial iceberg floating on the vast ocean, approaching the mighty Titanic, the most developed, invincible, militarily and technologically able nation on earth, the U.S.A.  America has much to fear. Democrat tactics are stealthy, deceptive, well organized, patient, manipulative, and treacherous.

Where does American Exceptionalism Come From?

Jun 20, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

I do not remember the term exceptionalism used in the seventies when I moved south. The word had been around for quite some time in political writings. I encountered people all the time who were proud of their heritage, their lilting southern accent, and Judeo-Christian values. They opened their homes and their churches to any newcomer, foreign or domestic, and welcomed them with a healthy dose of southern wit, apple pie, and fear of God.

Liberal Twisted Logic Why Gas is Expensive

Jun 18, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

Recently, two Washington Post writers, in a half-page spread resplendent with meaningless pie charts and graphs that even a high school student would laugh off, failed miserably to explain, “Why we feel pain at the pump.”

Demonizing America’s silent conservative majority from Canada

Jun 17, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

On May Day, the international holiday of communists, the Washington Post editorial used Jonathan Kay’s book, “Among the Truthers: A Journey through America’s Growing Conspiracist Underground,” to further besmirch and demonize the silent conservative majority of America. The left’s constant ideological wars against the taxpaying middle class and the job creators continue.

Agenda 21 and Obama’s Rural Council?

Jun 15, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

On June 9, 2011, an Executive Order established the White House Rural Council with 25 executive branch departments including Defense, Justice, Homeland Security, National Drug Control, Environmental Quality, Labor, Commerce, Interior, EPA, Housing, Health, Education to name just a few.

European Demographic Suicide

Jun 13, 2011 — Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

A recent interview with Neagu Djuvara, brought to the forefront the sad issue of cultural suicide by Europeans in the last thirty years. Statistical demographics prove that most western nations are not replacing their population at a rate higher than death rates and are thus galloping in the direction of self-extinction. The birth rate in various countries has dropped dramatically for Europeans while the birth rates of groups such as gypsies and immigrants from Africa and the Middle East are sky rocketing.
