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

No Change In DC

December 21, 2010

It Continuously baffles me how Americans constantly give the Democrats (more to the point, Obama) another chance.  It is also mind-boggling how we repeatedly believe that the elected officials from either House have learned their lesson, or better yet, seen the light, and will almost over night change their tune.  

I remember when Obama ran for office and how the media and all those elitist Democrats raved about what a fabulous speaker Obama was.  The fact that he was reading someone else’s words, from a teleprompter, never became part of  the discussion. 

My point:  Obama just spoke words.  Words that meant the world to those who listened and eventually voted for Obama, but meant nothing to him.  As for Congress, it never mattered what Obama said he would do or not do; Congress always exempts itself from the bills they pass into law.

So, when you hear that Nancy Pelosi is for some bill because it is good for the people; she is not including herself as one of the people; she is exempt.

I guess I’m going off course here a little.  You see, I don’t think anyone who is voted out of office like 60+ Democrats were, should be allowed to vote on the passage of any law, during the lame-duck session of Congress.  None of the bills passed this week should have been voted on.  Basically, Congress should have gone home for Christmas and waited until they came back to discuss the bills up for a vote and then read them out-loud on the floor, before voting on them.

Has anything changed in DC; I think not.  Are the Republicans so much better than the Democrats; I think not.  There is no logic to the fact that the Republicans claim that they need the Bush tax cuts extended for everyone, especially the rich, because it is the rich who create the jobs, do the hiring.  Well, the rich have had the Bush tax cuts for 7 years, and I haven’t seen any jobs being created nor have I seen any hiring, at least, not in America, (A bunch of CEO’s did go with Obama to Indonesia (remember the 13 day trip? It certainly wasn’t to create American jobs.

If you need verification of this fact then tell me, why did we need to extend unemployment for 13 months if the rich were doing all this job creating?  The Democrats and the Republicans talk out of both sides of their mouths.  The American people are still not connecting the dots.  When will they learn?

The Republicans could have held off until after Christmas to vote on all the bills, including the one that would shut down the Federal Government.  They could have taken a stand; but hey, the won their seats this time around, because the people believed their promise to cut spending and then they did what they always do, a complete180° turn around, and went back to their old tricks. 

When will they ever learn?  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

“Survival of the Fittest” The American Peoples War

September 8, 2010

The “Survival of the Fittest” will it be the Politicians or the American people who elected them?

Well, there is much more to be done as far as DC is concerned and since the American people have finally gotten off their couches and are out in the real world getting involved in Politics, like the Tea Party groups, I can only say that they have a lot more work ahead of themselves, and almost no time to finish it in before the mid-term elections.

The government workers should not be in a union.  The government has taken excellent care of them, as most get paid more than their private industry counterparts.  My thought is that all unions in this country (and I know I will get lots of flack for this statement) should be eliminated.  I grew up in the auto capitol of the world and believe me unions at one time had a reason to exist, but not any longer.  Union paid jobs cannot compete with Asian jobs, where the employed only get a few dollars per day.  Americans will come out on the losing end every time.  If Americans have not realized it by now, the government and corporate America are leveling out the Global Economy starting with the worker bees from our country.  

The only thing the unions do today is pay for lobbyists and the candidates running for office.  They have the ear of this President and are constantly insisting on this or that, like having their insurance cover “Viagra” while school children are required to bring their own “Toilet paper” to school. 

Well, it is my opinion that unless somebody starts using their brains in this country and gets rid of the unions, then we will never have an economic recovery because we will have no manufacturing.  We just can’t afford it. 

The union people in power don’t have any common sense, or any loyalty to America, as a whole.  These union leaders live high off the hog, on the dues of their members.  They also make the decisions on whom or which candidate gets millions of union money when running for office.

When will Americans wake up?  If every American doesn’t start looking after himself and stop believing what every Tom, Dick, Harry and O’Bama says, then he may as well consider our country doomed.

There is a saying that many should start thinking about,  “The Survival of the Fittest”, well at this point the fittest are the fat cats and crooked Congressmen in DC. so ask yourself,  just  how is it that  they are making sure that they themselves survive? 

Well, Congress passes laws and then exempt themselves.    Congress doesn’t pay Social Security, and they vote for their own raises.  When they leave Congress they will be paid their salary for the rest of their lives.  Does anyone else get that Royal treatment from his employer?  The President fired a CEO in the private sector, then takes over the company and chooses the new CEO. 

The left in Congress smears the names of anyone who disagrees with them, (trying to put fear in the hearts of those who have had enough and want to speak out)  hoping to make them afraid to do so.

The left repeatedly blames Bush for all of America’s  financial woes,  (I was against the war) but the war was not the  problem.  Our problems  started in January of 1994 when Bill Clinton passed NAFTA (No one ever mentions that because the blame game is almost always played by the Democrats, and Bill Clinton is a Democrat).  It was Clinton who started the out-sourcing in mass, to China, India and other 3rd world countries, costing America millions of jobs, and the loss of our major manufacturing industry.   It is Bill Clinton, a Democrat, that is responsible for the millions of jobs lost in this country, due to American corporations moving their manufacturing overseas.   Yet the left continues to blame Bush, and today the President did it again, during his speech in Ohio.  Its time Americans start connecting the dots by using the right information. 

The President, our leader and his Congressional gang, along with the Unions are selling the rest of us down the river.  Their concern is only that they and their families have enough money and power to survive.

 They will survive.  Will you ??   ss

Obama Orders NASA Chief: Make Muslims Feel Good

July 12, 2010

When 911 occurred I wondered why our National Security system did not react or maybe it just didn’t see that 3 passenger planes took off from airports and then changed their flight plan and the direction they were flying in, mid air.   Evidently our Strategic Air Command (SAC) did not notice or were not notified. 

Now, I thought SAC was supposed to be on constant alert 24/7, capable of seeing any aircraft or missiles aimed at or flying near or over our shores into American air space, but evidently on 911, they didn’t see anything and didn’t react until after the fact. 

Under the circumstances, looking back at their mistakes, especially those of the air traffic controllers in Chicago (which has the East Coast area and the mid-west air space to oversee) would be more alert today, than ever, when looking for anything out of the ordinary, like some plane flying over the USA without a flight plan, and possibly being in the way of other occupied flight routes.

We have all heard the saying, “the more things change, the more they stay the same,” well I would like to know how Colton Harris-Moore, the “Barefoot Bandit” stole a private plane in Indiana, and flew it from near our Northern border  to our  over and past our Sourthern border in American air space, without the plane showing up on radar and without the knowledge of air traffic control. 

Why didn’t SAC send out Air Force jets to escort this plane down to the ground?  Instead it flew unnoticed by a kid (19 years old) who was never trained to fly, nor knew any laws regarding flying a plane in US air space, all the way to the Bahamas basically unnoticed by any air traffic control towers.

What if some terrorists (and they already have, you can be sure of that) came into the US over the unsecured border in the South, like for instance, into Arizona, and then continued on to some small airport that they had already staked out, stole a plane and used it as a missile and flew it into some building, or sprayed some chemical over populated areas, or just flew it into a passenger plane already in the air?

I find that this is an extremely serious national security matter, which evidently has not been addressed, and no one is talking about it.  Our national security was breached when this kid flew a plane a great distance over American territory, and no one noticed.

Just how safe is US air space?  You would think after 911, no one would be able to enter our air space without being identified or shot down, yet a 19 year old kid on a cross country spree of robberies, break-ins, and just plain pranks stole a plane not once but numerous times and no one noticed while he was air bound.  This kid could have been a terrorist, foreign or domestic, it doesn’t matter, he still flew over US air space without being noticed by authorities.  Who in the is running this show? 

With our Southern borders being crossed everyday by illegals, many of unknown origin, I find it disgraceful that our Congress, our Homeland Security Director, the DOJ and our President feel that our Southern border is as “secure as ever”.  They evidently have the same opinion of Air Traffic Control towers, and the Strategic Air Command Center. 

Yesterday, Colton Harris-Moore, the  “Barefoot Bandit” was caught, after a boat chase, in the Bahamas.   He has been on the run for nearly two years and has quite a following on You Tube and Face Book.  It appears that You Tube and Face book fans followed this kid on his mischievous quest, more than the FBI did.

With all our scientific advancements in the United States, it took police in a country definitely not as advanced as ours to catch Colton Harris-Moore, the “Barefoot Bandit.” 

If you want to go a step further, think about who finally caught Joran van der Sloot, the Dutch prime suspect in the murder of a young American teen in Aruba.  The FBI was hot on his trail, but not only allowed him to escape from the US, but also financed his escape before he ended up killing yet another young woman in Peru and escaped to Chili where he was finally apprehended.  I would consider Chili a third world country.  I may be politically incorrect, according to some politician, but my opinion stays the same.

Maybe it’s time that President Obama starts appointing people with leadership abilities, and who actually know something about the job that they are being appointed to, when he selects someone to head an agency like the FBI, the CIA and especially the Attorney General’s position and the Homeland Security Director’s position.

Just this past week NASA Chief, Charles Bolden was given a new assignment by none other than President Obama.  Bolden told the news media that  “Obama wanted me to make Muslims feel good”.  Bolden continued, “ he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with predominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math and engineering.”  Are you kidding me?

To make matters even worse Bolden has gone on TV Al Jazeera, Bin Laden’s favorite media source, to spread the President’s warm and heart-felt message to the Muslim world.  So, maybe this is the “Change” we were promised, only didn’t know it at the time.

I think it’s time for Obama to “Reach out and make Americans feel good about themselves, including not apologizing for us to the world”.  Now, that would be  “Change.”   ss

Republicans: Second Chances are Hard to Come By!

July 11, 2010

Congress took a week off for the 4th of July holiday and left DC without extending the unemployment benefits for millions of Americans.  Now, I grant you that in normal times I see nothing wrong with someone getting unemployment benefits while he looks for another job.  Many of the unemployed receiving benefits have been doing so for 2 years, which is normally more than enough time to find another job.  

There is in my estimate close to 25 million people out of work.  The majority gave up looking for jobs a few years ago.  Those who were expecting an extension in benefits are out of luck.  The thing that is different this time, more than any time in the past is that there are no jobs, and truthfully, there are not going to be any jobs, for years to come.  Not unless we replace the incumbants in Congress, and not unless we replace the President in 2012.

Obama promised 3 million jobs if the Stimulus bill was passed.  He lied.    This was a promise he was not equipped to make.  He is not an economist, and though he is supposed to be a Harvard graduate, that doesn’t mean he is  “all knowing”.   The Congress did everything they could think of, threats, blackmail, begged, bribed and I’m sure much more to their peers, to get enough votes to pass the Stimulus bill,  against much opposition and now that they have been proven wrong and have lost 8 million jobs, instead of creating 3 million, they want to pass another Stimulus bill. 

Now, there are millions of Americans, this past week who are beside themselves trying to figure out where they are going to get their next meal from, and how they will survive, without those extended benefits, that Congress didn’t feel was important enough for them to take a pass, on their week long vacation and actually sit down and do something about the job problem.  That being said, there really isn’t anything Congress can do about the job market or lack there of, because it will take the American people to turn the economy around.

So, what do these Americans do now?  Well, if they can’t get help from family, or friends, there really isn’t much they can do.  So, now what?  Well, I have been having visions (not really) of soup lines sponsored by the government, like they had during the depression.  I would think many would say that I’ve gone out of my mind that this can’t happen in America.  Well, I’ve got news for all you die hearts, it can and will unless God performs some miracle. 

I have been saying for the last few years, that if there is no industry in America, if there is no manufacturing, then there will be no recovery.  All those jobs that the American corporations sent overseas, are gone and are not coming back and just in case Congress is reading this, I want them to know that part time, minimum wage jobs are NOT going to turn America around.

I am fed up with the outrageous, condescending attitude that this Congress has toward every American who basically is not in their immediate circle of campaign contributors and Lobbyists who are the bearers of financial, under the table, non taxable gifts to these Congressmen in order to secure votes that swing their way. 

It’s time Americans stand up for what is right.  It’s time to remove these self-serving elected officials out of Politics and out of DC forever.   Actually, believe it or not, but the Tea Party people have gone a long way in scaring incumbent Democrats and must continue to do so, if they want to get them out of office.  

It is time for the Republicans to “wake up and smell the coffee,” because they can be replaced too.  I think the Republicans think that they can just sit back and let the Tea Party people take care of the Democrats by themselves.   Well, I have news for the Republicans; if they want to take control of the House they had better help the Tea Party people and if they don’t want to go out there and campaign for those Republicans. that are running for office then the least they can do is come up with some money and hand it over to the Tea Party people.  Why do I say that?  Well, if the Tea Party people, who are not nationalized by any means, are going to win this mid-term election for America  they will need money.  Since they are doing the work of taking back the country on a shoe string budget, and when they succeed, it will most likely be the Republicans who will benefit from the win, then I say the Republicans can at least donate some money to the cause.  

Obama is on a roll and has been campaigning for Reid over the weekend.  Reid is almost as bad as Pelosi and needs to be removed from office.  There needs to be lots of Republican and Tea Party ads run in Nevada, and that costs money.  The ads need to start running now, and continue until the election.  This is going to be the last chance and maybe for 6 more years to get Obama’s agenda off the docket, so to speak.  Look what he and his followers have done to this country in just a year and a half, just how much more damage can this country take?  So, just imagine what these progressives can do if they have the next 2 years to do it in and then that rolls into another 4 years.  We may find ourselves to be worse off than some of the 3rd world countries we have always gone out and helped.  When we are that bad off, which countries do you think will help us out?   Don’t worry, I’ll tell you “None”. 

So, to the Republicans I say, “help the Tea Party people, help you”, get to work on this election, invite them in and work together.  There is no need to fear the Tea Party people; they want what you want; the Democrats out of D.C. and the easiest way to do that is to work together.  Do some fund raising, and start having your heavy weights go out on the campaign trail (besides Palin) and help those people who are running for office. 

This mid-term election, in my opinion, will be America’s last chance to save it’s self from any further destruction.  Turning things around will not be easy, and Americans will not have the chance to try unless we replace 41 Representatives in the House, with real, patriotic Americans, you know the kind I mean, the ones that actually tell the truth and work for and not against the American people who put them  in office.  Congressmen  enjoy a fabulous life-style paid for by the blood, sweat and tears of everyday Americans.  I can assure you that there has been a lot of tears in American homes in the past few years.

The time has come for the Republicans to help the Tea Party people take back our country.  It’s time we put Americans back to work (and I don’t mean one of Obama’s half baked stimulus job programs, where Americans work for minimum wages, part-time and for a few weeks before they are returned to the status of being unemployed).  For America to survive we need real jobs, we need industry and manufacturing  jobs which we can retire from years from now. 

It’s time for the real Americans to stand up and fight to keep this country “Free” because it just won’t happen by wishing it.  Second chances are hard to come by, and third chances, well, there usually aren’t any.  ss
