Tim Thomas: American Patriot (when he's not the Boston Bruins goaltender)
Good on ya Tim Thomas. The Conn Smyth winning goaltender from the 2011 stanley cup winning Boston Bruins didn't join his teammates visiting President Obama at the White House Monday. Now, Thomas has been hearing a ton of flak from the media for his decision to exercise his right of free speech and his individual right to choose what he wants to do. He doesn't respect Obama or his administration, and can you really blame him? What I respect about Thomas, is he had the guts to do what he felt was right. Yet most media is slamming the guy for.... Not joining his teammates? Hmmm. Why doesn't TSN mention the real elephant in the room here. His actual statement; here it is: “I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People. This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government. Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL. This is the only public statement I will be making on this topic. TT” We should be debating his statement, which I find to be accurate and I welcome a debate on it because his statement is truth, and not the Boston Bruins or Obama or political affiliation. Now, if you're a hockey fan reading this post and don't know much about the Federal Reserve, just google it, do some research. Research the American monetary system and how it drastically changed in 1913 with the Federal Reserve act. It's the only "government" agency to have never been audited. I think it's time to audit the Fed. Why not? The Fed it supposed to benefit the people, is it not? In fact, rewind to the 19th century and every company operating in the U.S. Was audited and had to prove that it benefited the American public. Of course, big business (David Rockefeller oil company) lobbied to change that in the late 19th century. Go to YouTube and search Alan Greenspan, the former chairman of the fed, and how he explains that there's no action the government can take to overturn decisions the fed sees as prudent. In other words, they're above the law. Thomas is the only American born player on the Boston Bruins... And flat out rejected the invitation. Now, I've been hearing the spin from the local winnipeg sports talk shows.. Saying how this is a disrespectful move by Thomas, and that these kind of comments could have been made in the off-season. Would anyone care what he says in the off-season? NO! It's brilliant PR to get his message across and bring awareness to his cause and the message of liberty against a federal government constantly eroding liberty and freedom in exchange for "safety" against an external threat, the"terrorist". Reminds me of Hitlers campaign of propaganda to hate the Jews, erode their rights... And then eveyones rights. Anyways... Tim Thomas exercised excellent PR to bring serious issues that everyone should understand and be aware of into the mainstream.... Expect this story to be swept under the rug unless Thomas makes further statements, which is unlikely because he said he wouldn't make any further statements. Certain sports talk show hosts say Thomas took some thunder from the Boston Bruins celebration of their Stanley Cup victory. Well i say the future of our society is more important than sports. Even though I love hockey and football. Go jets go! Tim Thomas = 2 thumbs up. It took a ton of courage, inner strength and integrity to make the statement you made. Hopefully this helps bring the issues you brought up to the forefront.... Before they elect Romney.... Wow, please don't elect Romney. Need a third party candidate. Break the two party paradigm. Pce.
