CADILLAC ELR POOLSIDE 2014 AD

February 27, 2014

I think the Poolside 2014 Cadillac ELR ad is terrific.  I see it as a response to Nancy Pelosi and Congressman Charles Shumers (D-NY) ridiculous comments trying to cover-up the colossal failure of Obamacare, which resulted in the loss of full-time, well-paid jobs and the lowering of the full-time work week from 40 hours per week to 35 hours.  This Healthcare abomination has resulted in the creation of minimum wage, full-time, temporary jobs and Nancy is promoting this as a good thing, claiming that now these under achievers, and under paid workers can relax, follow their dreams and let the Government take over in supporting them.  Of course, what Nancy, Harry (Reid) and Charles don’t tell you is that along with that government support, that they claim is a good thing, they are also passing Bills that will allow the government to regulate what you eat, drink, and soon what activities you must participate in if you want to be supported and receive government paid for and less than optimal Healthcare.  

Most foreigners come to America to follow their dreams, but those dreams don’t include sitting on their duffs all day and painting a picture or playing the guitar Ms. Pelosi.  People come here, to the land of opportunity, where they have the Freedom to compete, in the work place, where the best of the best, rise to the top, and by doing so, they develop a good work ethic, sense of self-worth, satisfaction for putting in a good days work and pride in themselves, knowing they can pursue their dreams, whatever they may be, but on their own terms, with money they have earned and with pride because they too are a part of the American  exceptionalism that Patriotic, true Americans have always had.  For those who do not believe in American exceptionalism, well, all I can say is, WOW!  Evidently, there’s a sucker born every minute.  ss

 

America: In God We Trust?

May 5, 2011

I recently watched, one more time, the movie, Ten Commandments.  There is one scene in the movie that has repeatedly come to my mind over the last year.  When Moses parts the Red Sea and all the Jews cross safely to the other side, and the Sea falls back into place the Jews  finally feel free and safe.  Moses goes up into the Mountain at which time he sees the Burning bush and God gives him the Tablets with the Ten Commandments engraved on them.  While Moses is up in the Mountains the saved Jews below, in their over joyous mood, because they escaped from the land of the Pharaoh’s, work themselves up into a frenzy.  The mood among the Jews  goes from happiness to joyous to sinful erotica.   They build pagan Gods to pray to.  They dance in a very uninhibited manner, partake in orgies, drink themselves into a stupor, start praying to false Gods, lose all inhibitions, forget who led them to the promised land (God) and turn away from God.

In the movie version of the Ten Commandments, which is a story taken from the Bible, the Jews, man, lost his way and God was not pleased.  Those who did not repent were banished to hell, those who repented were saved.  And life went on.

Now, Two thousand years later, in America we are seeing a replay, so to speak, much like the movie version, and very much like the story in the Bible, but in some respects it is playing out in many different ways, our country is in total chaos, but the underlying theme of Godlessness, is still there.

Society has changed.  Many no longer value themselves, have no self respect, have no morals, have lost compassion for their fellow man, and have become selfish, and self-serving.

It is apparent in our leaders, like Congress, who have an uncontrollable appetite for more money and power.  They have no qualms about walking over one another to climb the ladder of success.  The President had no reservations about throwing his party’s members under the bus, for not voting his way on the Health Care Bill.   Our leaders believe they are above the law and openly break them.  If they have money and power they do not suffer the consequences of breaking the law.   Did Charlie Rangel ever relinquish those HUD apartments in New York or lose his seat in Congress?

These same ugly excuses for human beings spew hatred against law-abiding citizens.  They call Patriotic Americans “Astro-turf”.  Look whose calling whom “artificial.”

Many of these Congressional leaders call Tea Party people Racists.  They make deals under the table and get rich on our time and buck.  These bloodsuckers have no ethics, no honor and no humility.  They are truly un-American. 

Our Congressional gold-diggers are like the people in the movie, Ten Commandments; they have lost their way and it doesn’t look like they are about to change for the better, anytime soon.  They have taken American history out of school books.  they have taken the Ten Commandments off the walls of our court houses.  They have taken over almost every sector of our society and turned it into a government entity.  They have promised the poor a better life, so that they will vote to keep them in office.  This will change, once they get what they want, which is a weak America, where the citizens do what they are told.

They have decided the elderly are of no use any longer, and it’s not because they are old, but because they are smart and know what the leaders are up to and would stand in their way.  Those seniors, Congress wants to get rid of, with their “Death Panels” are the only people holding this country together.  Once they are gone, so is America. 

Americans have lost the one thing that made America great; “In God We Trust”.  They have lost their faith, they have turned their backs on God.  ss

National Protests by Obama Union Backers

March 9, 2011

This Nationwide protesting by the Unions and thugs backed by leftist, Political organizations is just the beginning and to be honest it’s one hell of a beginning.  As soon as Spring hits us and then Summer, look out.  I have been saying for the last year that this coming Summer is going to be a hot one.   I truly believe we will have major protests and possibly riots.

Then, especially if it’s a very hot Summer we could end up with things being so bad that the Big “O” will send in the new National Police force to implement Marshall Law. 

Sadly, the Tea Party and the Conservative Right, have hibernated for the Winter, and not done much, if anything.  I guess they think because they won the election the game was over.   It’s not that simple.  The game, and it is a game, to the Elitists in DC, they have a never-ending hunger for more Power and Money, and they will never be satisfied, no matter how much they have.

I don’t see any of them spreading their wealth.  That task is left for Middle America to do.  For the life of me I just don’t understand why Americans still don’t get it.  I know some of them do, but it’s not enough.  They all need to pay attention and the sad fact is that those who don’t pay attention don’t have the time because they are too busy trying to survive or stay afloat a little longer.  They just don’t realize why they aren’t getting anywhere.  It is almost to the point that those who are unemployed are so deep in debt that they will never be able to get out. 

Patriotic Americans need to Wake Up and Stand Up for their Constitutional rights.   It’s amazing to me how the leftist media and the Congress are for arming the rebels in Libya, because they stood up in a peaceful manner to get Qaddafi out of office, yet they call the Tea Party People who have stood up for their rights as Americans, racists, radicals, domestic terrorists and Nancy Pelosi’s favorite, astro-turf.  What hypocrites they truly are.   ss

The Palins vs Kathy Griffin

January 6, 2011

An online article two days ago, stated that Kathy Griffin intended on continuing her dogging of the Palin family.  We all know that she does this to keep her name in the headlines.  It’s free publicity.  But at what cost to the Palin family? 

I believe any really good lawyer could take care of this Kathy Griffin situation for the Palins.  I find Kathy Griffin’s remarks disgusting to say the least and let me be clear here, I find Sarah Palin a nice down to earth woman with whom middle America identifies with, but because of her Political agenda, her children for some reason (where is their dad?) have had no guidance at home.  Yes, she may have a political agenda, but she is no one I would vote for, at least at this time and only because I don’t think she is experienced enough to handle the job of President, though she has more Political experience than Obama had.  But there are others that would vote for her and thus, the Kathy Griffin attacks.

That being said, I don’t think Kathy Griffin is qualified to be a comedian or use that title as an excuse to justify her vicious Palin remarks.  I really do not believe that making fun of, in a very nasty way, mind you, another person comes anywhere close to being funny.

It seems that Griffin has decided she will leave Sarah Palin alone for a while, including passing over Bristol and is going to move on to a younger daughter in the Palin family who is only 16 years old, her name is Willow.  I understand that Willow has made some comments on Facebook in response to derogatory remarks made by a student in Alaska, about her mother.  

I have read what the remarks are supposed to be and do find them inappropriate to say the least.  It also appears that Sarah’s children have not been supervised enough or been given guidance on how to respond publicly to things they hear or see about themselves or a family member,  that are basically uncalled for remarks by someone who thinks its fun to take cheap shots at others and do it on the internet, or in public so as to create a media frenzy and subsequently hurt the feelings of one of the Palin family members. 

I really think that the people who watch Griffin do it to see just how far she will go before someone, anyone, a good lawyer perhaps files a complaint against her for harassment, or defamation of character

Now a 16 year old could probably have a lawyer represent her.  You see, she’s not famous in her own right; she’s not in the limelight by her own decision.  She is not a famous person, out on the road making speeches, nor is she a singer or movie star.  She’s an underage daughter of a prominent person.  She should have the right to sue Kathy Griffin for harassment, or defamation of character and win.  The key word here is “under age” and basically a “no one”.

But, the retaliatory remarks Willow makes on the internet or in public do not help her cause.  She is feeding right into the hands of those who want to make her a public topic and ultimately do her harm by publicly insulting her.  If her mother is not at  home then where is her father?   One would think she would have discussed this particular incident with one of her parents before writing about it on the internet.

Just how mean and vindictive does someone like Griffin need to be before someone shuts her up legally?  Even our service men, which fight and die for the rest of us Americans and our freedom of speech, cannot stand her.  So, why is it that the rest of us feel she has the right to be malicious?  How would you like her going after your daughter, sister or mother, I don’t think anyone would like it.  Could it be this is why no one will stand up to her for fear she may come after them next?  Let’s face it, many people have skeletons in their closet and don’t want them yelled out all over t he nightly news.

Certainly many in Middle America identify with Sarah Palin and would vote for her to be President, but identifying with someone who has the same personal and family problems as you do, is not a qualification to be President, especially when those problems are detrimental to the mental and physical well-being of ones children.   When I was growing up it was almost a sin to get pregnant when still a child and in school and it wasn’t much better for a young woman to get pregnant if she wasn’t married.   It was embarrassing for the girl when she had to finally tell her parents.    It was humiliating to the parents when the news got out among family and friends and made them look like they were doing a poor job of raising their children.  It was worse if it hit the papers and went National or International.  

Today, it seems it is more acceptable, but make no mistake it is hard for the girl/young woman when it is kept in the news by those whose intentions are to only humiliate and inflict mental anguish.  It is this reason why I think Kathy Griffin should have some kind of legal action brought against her to stop her mean insults directed at the Palin children. 

I know, the Palins should hire an attorney but they have not, as far as I know.  So, maybe, just maybe,  there is still a Children’s Advocate out there, a Lawyer with some sense of decency who will come forward and offer his legal services to the Palin children.  I mean at the very least there is a huge upside for a Lawyer to do so, he will get headlines, and a reputation for protecting those who can not protect themselves from the evil doers out there, and it would all be free advertising for him.  What better way  to boost ones’ career?  It would be a win/win situation for all concerned (except Griffin).

I  hate to say this, but I don’t think Sarah Palin and her husband are doing a very good job of protecting their children from persecution by those who have no conscience or morals.

Who would or could advise these girls, if Sarah made it to the White House?  Sadly,  it is evident that they were never prepared properly on how to act publicly and more importantly,  how to show respect not only for themselves, but for their mother who is a public person looking at living in the White House. 

Certainly Americans of all social classes can identify with the Palin family.  Please don’t take my remarks the wrong way.  Sarah Palin’s children have had their lives turned upside down by a media that has no integrity.  The Palin children have been thrown into the lions den, and someone forgot to tell them how to defend themselves in a appropriate  manner.   Becasuse Middle America identifies with the Palins, is not a reason to put Sarah in the White House.   We want the highest of moral standards to be a part of the everyday life of our President and his family.  

 The President and his family  are supposed to set an example for the rest of us.  We as Americans want a President who has control not only of his/her life but also, sets boundries for his/her children.  We want to be proud of the person we elect to the highest office in the land and want him/her to deserve the respect that someone in his/her position should be given by not only Americans, but the world.  Sadly, Sarah Palin cannot change the family issues that have already been blown out of proportion by the leftist media,  but she can try to protect her children a little more, and give them some guidance on how and what they should do or say when confronted by outsiders who try to hurt them just because of their mother’s public ambitions.  

Now, with all that being said, is there a “Lawyer in the House” who has the guts to come forward and give some legal advice to the Palin children and better yet, represent them?     ss

Freedom; A Gift and a Curse!

December 30, 2010

I have decided to comment on a subject my friend Brenda brought up on her blog. 

Borrowing a quote from Brenda’s blog referring to Judge Henry Hudson’s remarks in reference to passage of the Health Care Bill and the FCC passage of the new Internet law.

 Brenda stated that “In just one month, a federal judge has ruled that the Commerce Clause cannot be stretched to cover absolutely everything the Congress wishes to do, and a chorus of limited-government voices has noisily protested the Federal Communications Commission’s attempt to assert control over the Internet.”

I agree with Brenda and the fact that she pointed out what this particular Judge said.  I agree with Judge Hudson, but it seems that those in the process of overtaking our government have deliberately ignored the courts.

 Americans better get off their duffs.  There is no more time to waste.  Americans need to stop complaining and actually do more to stop the “Fast and Loose” dismantling of the US Constitution, by a bunch of “In-House” what I would refer to as, domestic Terrorists, called Congress.  While “We the People” go along and file our objections and motions in court and bring people together from across the country (Tea Party) to stand up in town squares and talk about the Constitution and our Freedoms and the purpose of making sure that they stay in place, stay in affect, for generations to come, basically doing what is our God-given right to do; the enemy, our elected officials (our doing) are moving forward at warp speed in their quest to destroy America before “We the People” can stop them. 

They are succeeding and why, because while “We the People” are filing objections in court, and even winning, these pariahs are ignoring court orders, as though they have that right, and just continue on, like a child, daring a parent to “Stop me”, as they laugh out loud.  But a child does not understand what he is doing, he does not yet know “right from wrong” he is still innocent.  These elected officials (Make no mistake about it) know exactly what they are doing.  It is up to each and every American to do what ever it takes to stop them, before it is too late and believe me it is “Late”. 

Late, though it is, it is never too late to try.  There is always “Hope” and as long as there is “Hope” then there is a chance to succeed.   Americans should realize by now, that nothing is a sure thing, even the Constitution, unless there are those who will stand up and are willing to fight to protect it from all those who wish to destroy it.  It is our “Destiny” to stand up and fight to keep our God-given Freedom; it is our duty.  

Freedom is America’s gift to the world.  People risk dying, trying to reach the land of Freedom and equal opportunity.   No other country in the world has the Freedoms that America promises to its citizens.  Yet, at this point in history, Americans have taken those Freedoms for granted, and it has taken a very long time for many to realize that they are at the brink of losing those Freedoms.  It is time that they realize that within our own country there are those out there in the real world wanting to take those Freedoms away from us.   It is hard for Americans to believe that any American would do such a

dastardly thing, but it is their way of accumulating more Wealth, Power and yes Freedom for themselves.  Why do they think they have this right and why are they doing this?  It’s a simple reason, “Because they Can”!  No one has stopped them.   In America you have the right to accumulate Wealth and Power, but not at the expense of depriving others from doing so.   Hey, it all comes down to Money and Power.  Has anyone ever asked to see the stock portfolios of our elected officials to see how much “Insider Trading” they have done while they were in office?  If, before voting on a bill a Congressman buys stock in a company knowing if the bill is voted into law, that it will move the value of that stock in that particular company and he makes money on this investment, then I would consider that “Insider Trading”.  Has this been done?  I think it’s time to find out.  I suspect that this has been done quite often.  Of course, if this has happened it would be a faster way of getting people out of office then waiting for the next election and more damage to be done to the Constitution.

 It is time for America to stand up for the gift our founding Fathers promised them.  It is time for America to stand up and defend their God-given right to protect those Freedoms.  It is time to stand up or shut up and by doing so, watch those Freedoms taken away from us.  Certainly fighting in a court of law is the right way to go about keeping our Freedom, but the evildoers are now among those in the legal system.  So, now we must gather in great numbers to voice our distain for those who try to steal away our God-given right to be Free.  It is time to replace all those who want to destroy the greatest gift of mankind, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

 We need 10, maybe 20 or more Million people to stand up along side the “Tea Party” people and join them in trying to stop the destruction of the most powerful words written on any piece of paper in the World, the American ConstitutionWe are off to a good start, but there is “oh, so much more” that needs to be done.  Americans should never believe that one person can not make a difference, that one person can not “Change” what is wrong, because all it takes is the right person to come along and speak the truth, and others will follow. 

 It is a well-known fact that bills that are voted into law, seldom, if ever, get repealed.  So, my warning to those who still believe in God, Flag and Country, get up off your asses and join the rest of us, and “Stop” these self-absorbed, money and power hungry evil-doers, in Congress before they finish their job of destroying AMERICA from within.  

There is no better time than the present to take a stand and do so, by joining those Americans who truly believe in Freedom and fighting for what they believe in.  

What will the world do, if there is no longer the possibility of dreaming of or hoping and praying for a better life that exists somewhere on the planet when that place no longer exists, because there is no longer Freedom in America?  ss

It’s Time To Take The Country Back, America!

November 24, 2010

The Time Has Indeed Come!

 Governors of 35 states have already filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them.  It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, link to it, and/or please pass it on, which is what I’m doing now.

An idea whose time has come!

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress.  Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws.   The latest was to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform … in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law.  I truly don’t care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop. 

A Constitutional Convention – this is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come.  And, with the advent of modern communication, the process can be moved along with incredible speed.  There is talk out there that the “government” doesn’t care what the people think.  That is irrelevant.  It is incumbent on the population to address elected officials to the wrongs afflicted against the populace…you and me. 

Think about this…   The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified!  Why?  Simple!  The people demanded it.  That was in 1971…before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.   Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land…all because of public pressure.

I’m asking each person who reads this to link it to your blogs, so as many people as possible will see it.   If you don’t have a blog,  copy and send it out in email form,  to as many people as you can,  in turn ask each of those people to send it to their email list.

In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.

Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:

“Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States .”  ss

Charlie Rangel asks for Mercy, Right!

November 18, 2010

I just read “The Capitalist” on the Internet.  I was somewhat perplexed by the lack of disapproval by the author of an article about Charlie Rangel, until I realized, I think it was an actual news piece, and not someone’s political point-of-view.  Now, I don’t know if Patricia Murphy is left, right or in the middle when it comes to her political point-of-view, but the article seemed, on just a fast read on my part, totally neutral on her part, which was refreshing but odd,  compared to what we see in the media today.   I was surprised. 

That being said, I find that now, it’s seems that Charlie Rangel after walking out of the Ethics Committee hearing the other day in a disrespectful, condescending manner and then stating in interviews with the press, in a “feel sorry for me demeaner” that he feels as though he was treated unfairly by the Committee, because they wouldn’t give him more time to prepare (he had over two years)  only to come back today asking for mercy is really to much melodrama for me.

He said today that “How can 40 witnesses, 30,000 pages of transcripts, over 550 exhibits measure against my 40 years of service and commitment to this Body I love so much?”  Rangel wrote.  “I hope my four decades of service merit a sanction that is in keeping with and no greater than House precedents and also contains a drop of fairness and mercy.”  Is Mr. Rangel, delusional?

I’m sure Mr. Rangel does love his job, because he actually thinks that 4 decades of lining his wallet was serving the American people?  Just where do these elected people come from?  I’m watching what punishment this committee comes up with and I hope they take into consideration his attitude and the lack of respect that he not only has given the position he holds, but gave them when he walked out of the proceedings two days ago.

Mr. Rangel has known about the ethic rules and which ones he was accused of breaking for a few years if not from the very beginning when he thought he could take advantage of the system and not get caught.  He was willing to take the chance of not being caught and break the rules, because he thought he was above the law.  Now it’s time to pay the piper. 

He has had ample time to sell his Dominican house that he rents out and doesn’t pay taxes on and/or pay the taxes he owes on it.   He has had ample time to move out of the rent-controlled apartments and I believe there are four of them that he has, not one as was stated in the Capitalist blog and pay the cost of the lost rent on them as though they were not  rent-controlled apartments, and then and only, then would he have had the right to ask for MERCY. 

If this Committee does not do their job properly and remove him from office then I would say they better look out when they run for office again.  They too have a lot to lose if they don’t represent the American people in this matter.

 In the real world, his constituent’s world, one only needs one witness to a crime to be found guilty.  Playing the “Feel sorry for me card” doesn’t change my mind.  He has been arrogant to his peers in Congress and to the American people.  It’s time the law caught up with him.  Those dispersing punishment better make sure they do their job ethically.    ss
