Can YOU Keep A Secret?

Nobody’s Opinion: Here’s a philosophical question for ya:

When do you keep something “secret” and when do you not?

Even though these little decisions affect most humans on the planet every hour of the day, when it comes to governments holding secrets from its people, it can become a whole other “can of philosophical worms” so to speak.

This mental “dilemma,” one that serial killers have gotten down to a science, is something we all learn to deal with as little kids.

Do you tell your parents that it was you that actually broke mom’s favorite “Ming” vase in the living room by accident? Do you tell your dad that it was really you who took your sister’s favorite doll and blew it to smithereens in the driveway with leftover firecrackers because you ran out of toy cars?

Besides, your little sister is a real pest. And you wish she’d just go away.

I remember once when I was a kid, I accidentally sat on a 78’ long playing record called “I Like Ike.” I felt really bad about it, but went promptly to the kitchen and told my mom.

She just about put me up for adoption. The only way I remained in the family was by asking her to sing the song to me every other day…in which she would burst forth into:

“I like Ike, and Ike is good with a MIKE.” (Good thing I knew what a mike was.)

Maybe that’s why I became a singer. I thought if I could learn to actually SING that song my mother wouldn’t starve me.

The other lesson I learned is that some guy named IKE, was the heartthrob that my mom had always dreamed of, but because of destiny, she settled for my dad.

And this guy Ike had to be the greatest President in history for my mom to have gotten so upset.

It never crossed my mind that I shouldn’t have told her. I figured she’d find out anyway.

This is an important lesson in deciding whether to keep secrets---even when you grow up and try to tell your girlfriend that that earring in your glove box is actually your sisters, your sister might not even wear earrings and then explaining the earring in your car’s glove box will be much harder.

But, in personal relationships the only ones affected by the “secrets” told are a very small number. When a government decides to hide “secrets” (and let’s exclude military here) from their people, it can mean life or death.

It can mean the difference between a dictatorship and a republic.

Not too long ago I read an article by John L. Esposito, another one of our government’s think tank consultants from Georgetown called,

“Political Islam: Beyond the Green Menace
.” This was written back in 1994.

Here’s some of the stuff they knew way back when:

There is an Islamic world in more than 48 countries and a rapidly growing minority in Europe and America. While some Islamic organizations engage in terrorism, seeking to topple governments, others spread their message through preaching and social services and demand the right to gain legitimate power with ballots rather than bullets, in other words to hijack democracy.”

In other words, when Rumsfeld was fired, he lamented that people just didn’t get the whole picture.

Well, of course we don’t. It’s a been a well kept secret. We are lead to believe even now, that we have more to fear from our SUV”S then the Muslims moving into our neighborhoods.

We are also being lead to believe that an invasion of Mexicans is good for us, even if all the proof shows it’s the end of America as we know it. It’s a well kept secret that our government intends to take care of its own continuing power structure first, and if that means the final downfall of the rest of us…so be it.

That’s how important they think they are. If not for them, there would BE no Wal-Mart.

But, the real power brokers, Kissinger and Madeleine Albright, are running around secretly “fearing” for the clash of civilizations that they think President George W. Bush is going to “start.”

Well, who started this? And when? It sure wasn’t me or you.

Esposito writes; “Middle Eastern governments have used the danger posed by Islamic fundamentalism as the excuse for increasing authoritarianism and violations of human rights and the indiscriminate suppression of Islamic opposition, as well as for the West’s silence about these actions. Tunisia, Algeria, and Egypt join Israel in warning of a regional and international Islamic threat in their bids to win Western aid and justify their repression of Islamists.”

Gee, god forbid they all stop getting our millions.

He goes on to talk about Iran’s plans to export its revolution all over the world, with Iran and Sudan at its heart. Islam is the second largest religion in Germany and France and the third largest in Britain and America. (Remember, this is 1994.)

This is a fact long been known by our “leaders.”

Like the communists, they are patient. The Islamic, whether radical or not, plan to convert the whole world. They think long-term along with their communists buddies.

This is also why they love the democrats, knowing they will convert willingly. As we now see, the communists had no trouble with them.

Funny, we are just getting this news twelve years later?

And not from our government, who would prefer we forget 9/11 as one forgets a traffic accident. It was just a fender bender to them.

No, they hold many secrets. The fact that they did not come to Terry Schiavo’s rescue is because they know that the money for Medicare is going fast, and the baby boomers are going to want their money back. The policies of “right to die” were already in place and being implemented at all hospitals.

Save one, you have to save them all. Better they die sooner rather than later.

If you are over 65, and arrive in intensive care, you will have a doctor shouting over you to your children saying, “So, who takes care of her WILL?”

Or how about those two Border Patrol officers who were jailed for doing their jobs?

Once again, the silence from our government is overwhelming. Drug addicts are pardoned, while patriots are punished. Another secret covered up.

Drugs are very big business here in the United States, and plans for legalization are probably coming soon.

The National Guard is sent to appease us, but the secret is, they are just being allowed to give out water.

The plan to merge into a North American Continent has been forged long before now with both parties signing NAFTA. President Bush has signed the North American Continent agreement with Mexico and Canada.

It’s just a secret they want to continue to keep quiet, which means, fill the airwaves with lost children and scandals. Lou Dobbs can’t do a thing about it.

After all, he holds no office.

So, when Bill Clinton refused to go after bin Laden twelve times saying he did not get the chance, when Condoleezza Rice came out and said nobody could imagine that people would fly planes into the world trade center:

Don’t believe it.

It’s a dirty secret that our highest officials have known about this extreme danger coming our way for many, many years.

They just didn’t want to mention it to us.

We saw this in the downing of flight 800, where all sorts of stories were made up to hid the secret that we all now suspect, that it was a terrorist attack.

Hundreds of witnesses were basically silenced.

Secrets are so important to our government that Sandy Berger is sent into our National Archives and hides secrets in his stinky socks.

And nobody in the government will even touch him, because it’s a dirty little secret that they all know, they do not intend to protect us.

They put on that dog and pony show, they invent committees made up of the very people who know all about the mandate to cover up corruption.

What…are we some kind of children to them? Don’t WE pay their salaries?

Like the First World Trade Center bombing, our Leaders want us to think they are actually protecting us, instead of what they are really doing it seems…

And that is picking fights.

It’s the role of parents to protect their children sometimes by keeping secrets about certain things, like the secrets of sex until they are old enough to mentally handle it.

BUT, we are all adults here on the same planet. It’s not the role of our government to assume the same position as benevolent parents. They are suppose to abide by the rule of law…they are suppose to uphold the republic.

The republic that we the people elected them to preserve.

And holding vast secrets from us, secrets that affect our lives and that of our children is basically…tyrannical.

Going around the whole world trying to set up democracies like President Bush is claiming to do in the Muslims nations is going to be extremely difficult, because there is no such thing as democratic rule in their religion, which is incorporated into their state.

If you give them free elections, they will elect dictatorships. Hoping the people will fight for a democracy is a long shot, one that President Bush has decided to take.

His reason for it is a secret.

But if this IS the last clash of civilizations, don’t you think they should tell us flat out?

And if this is the final clash of civilizations, then there is no question that the West should win. The Eastern religions are based on slavery.

If you are a woman in Saudi Arabia, you must have the permission of you husband to do anything. It is a nation of slaves, always has been.

(I would certainly like to hear Dr. Elder’s response on this, spirituality speaking.)

Unlike our colonies, which were pretty “free” before the revolution, Islamic Muslims have never tasted democracy. It’s not an easy concept for them.

If our leaders were so concerned about “democracy” we should insist they set more of a democratic example of it here at home.

Instead, in the last few years, while trying to spread “democracy” into China and the Middle East, we have seen them “rule” us with what car we can drive, what food we can eat, what education our children can get, who is allowed to take our property, what gambling habits we can have, and what nations can invade us.

These things have nothing to do with protecting us from jihads.

We have been ordered to sacrifice our retirement and the education of our children, give up any hope of a middle class standard of living to “affirmative” action privileges in order to merge with another nation.

Have you ever wondered why this merging is so popular? Because the rich get so much richer. The same thing happens with governments. It’s cost effective.

Makes sense to them.

The baby boomers and their children are to pay for this globalization, while the big international corporations, along with the ruling classes secure their lives and their children’s for the next 200 years.

Or until China, with the help of the Clintons, take them over.

Who knows if President Bush’s plan of trying to plant freedom in a Muslim nation will work or not, it certainly is a long shot. It might have worked if the democrats hadn’t sided with the Muslims.

Maybe it is just the last attempt by a frustrated President try to put off WWIII just a little longer.

One thing for sure, the American people will never know, it’s all a secret.

Nobody’s Perfect; Hillary’s secret plan has been to marry Bill Clinton, who would be made President, and for all her hard work in supporting him, she would become the first woman President.

She had to keep that a secret all her life. It was such a secret, that when she finally came out an announced it, no one was surprised.

Nobody Knows; Going back to personal secrets, I’ve always wondered how many men have copies of nude women hidden in bathroom ceiling tiles, or under sofa’s, and how many women find them?

Nobody Cares; William Congreve once said, “I know that it’s a secret, for it’s whispered everywhere.”

Which pretty much solves that issue.
