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

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

“We the People” vs The Enemy Within

July 17, 2010

 We  in America are all so economically intertwined with the international communities around the world that it is necessary for us to survive, so that all will survive.  Our future and what we can accomplish is only limited by those who limit our actions, by limiting our individual freedom.  The only limitations we have in today’s world are the limitations we put on our selves.  

We have taken way too long to stand up to the elitists Politicians who have been chipping and chipping away at the foundation that our freedom is built on.  These elected Politicians, these manipulators of truth, these greedy, self-indulgent, ego-centric representatives of the people, have somehow been morphed into empty vessels that look like human beings, but who can only survive, when sucking the breath of life out of “We the People” and they do this for nothing more than money and power. 

 This Congress and this White House are the closest examples that mankind has, to the idea of vampires, which legend leads us to believe, can only survive on the blood of humans.

I’m talking about a Congress and a White House who spend  their days blaming others for their mistakes and short-comings, trying to make their opponents look unworthy and to top it off this White House has no problem with throwing it’s own people under the bus.  

The Democrats in the House, spend their  nights hidden behind closed, locked doors, while Americans sleep, writing 2000 + page legislation, which they will never read, and yet they have the gall to vote for it.

 They have no idea if their legislation, if voted into a bill, will even work, because they have not written a working plan, but just a shopping list of ideas of anything that pops into their heads, so they can vote it into a bill and always with a price tag attached to it, which basically amounts to the highest number they can count up to.

This price tag has nothing to do with what the bill, when put into action, will cost to implement, but will just be an additional slush fund that they can dip into when the mood strikes them.  The real catch here is, that it is always the American people who get stuck paying for that bill, when it comes due. 

The time has come for “We the People” to take action on a National level.  We need to unite and there is no question about it.  The “Power of One” a united front, of “We the People” is what this country needs if our Republic is to survive. 

There are no “Limits to what we can do, if we do it together”.  We need to stop our Congress from continuously attempting to take our  freedom away from us, by limiting what we can and cannot do, by voting it into law.

Never in my lifetime, have I seen a Congress and a White House show so little regard for the freedoms we as Americans have been guaranteed by our Constitution.  This Congress and White House is such an embarrassment to the American people that, I honestly believe that, even our enemies are embarrassed for us and that they secretly hope and pray (yes, pray, that’s how bad this is) that we somehow will take back our Republic, so that they can continue to have an enemy worthy of their hatred. 

Now, if one looks at things from this point-of-view, it should be evident that America is in the fight of a lifetime.  This is no longer a time for talking, it is however, a time for action and it is about this moment in time, we will want the history books to say, that “We the People” woke up, united and took our country, our Republic  back,  from the “Enemy within”.  ss

Government Control of The Banking Industry

May 29, 2010

Just the name, Senator Dodd, makes me want to cringe.  This man was partially responsible for the problems we originally had in the banking industry.  He was the congressman who was the Chairman of the Banking Committee.  He was the man who in front of Congress said, “Everything is fine in the Banking Industry and I see no problems”.   Two or three months later all hell broke lose.  

Now, this man, who has already announced his retirement, who is not running again in the mid-term elections because he knows he couldn’t win, is in charge of writing a NEW bill which will basically take government control of the Banking Industry.  Is there not one shred of Common Sense in Congress?  

Why would anyone let this loser, who screwed things up the first time around, who received special favors in mortgage financing from Countrywide, continue to Chair the  Banking Committee? Since he is not running again it seems there is a no-holds barred attitude in the House.  He is not the right person to be writing this bill. 

Now, true the Ethics Committee investigated this guy and found him innocent of wrong doing in financing his homes, at a very cheap rate.   Here is their decision; In a letter sent to Senator Dodd today, the Committee wrote that after deposing witnesses and poring over more than 18,000 pages of documents in a year-long investigation, it found “no substantial credible evidence as required by Committee rules that your Countrywide mortgages violated Senate ethics rules.”   As you can see, Congress takes care of their own. 

 But it’s time we take care of Congress.   The men who have been in Congress forever need to be replaced.  As I have said many times, they were elected to represent their constituents, it was supposed to be a privilege and honor to do so, not a career move or lifetime job.  So far not one of these men would be considered “lifetime employee material”.

 It’s time to replace these incumbents with new blood, new thinking and based on Constitutional law.  That is all I ask for, that our Congress upholds the law as written in the Constitution and not attempt to re-write it.  ss

Will Obama, Step Up And Secure the Borders?

May 13, 2010

I have been watching Cable news for the last few days and am quite upset with what is going on in response to the new Arizona Immigration law.   Obama preempted Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s scheduled press conference last week, where she was going to announce her decision to sign the new Immigration bill into law.  In his speech, at a naturalization ceremony for 24 members of the military, Obama made the following statement about the Governors decision to sign the Immigration bill, “Our failure to act responsible at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others. That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona, which threatens to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe”. 

I cannot tell you how upset this President has made me.  Then I think who am I, that he should even care what I think?  My answer, to myself, surprised even me.

I’m a Patriotic American citizen, President Obama is supposed to “REPRESENT” me.  He is supposed to “PROTECT” me, as an American citizen.  He is supposed to be “HONEST” with me.  He is supposed to “LEAD” the American people.  He is supposed to be “PROUD” to be the Commander and Chief.  But what has he done?

He is more interested in “DIVIDING” than he is in “UNITING”.

Obama has been more interested in “REPRESENTING FORIEGNORS” than the people he was elected to represent.  He is more concerned with “PROTECTING” the rights of Illegals, than he is at protecting the LIVES of Americans.  He is more interested in “LEADING” the Global community than in Leading Americans according to the Constitution.  He is more “PROUD” of being Black than he is at being part Black and part White, a fact that he could have used to Unite Americans.  He seems to have forgotten that he is both Black and White.

His thinking is Racist, yet he constantly accuses others,  “Whites” of being racist.  He is more interested in driving a wedge between Blacks and Whites than he is in bringing the Country together.  Consider Martin Luther King, Jrs. words  I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character”. 

Yet, Obama has, with his comments about the new Arizona Immigration Law, deliberately misled all those who believe in him as a leader.  He has divided the American people.  He has convinced them that the new Immigration Law is Racist, that it involves racial profiling, even though, it plainly states in the Law that no racial profiling will be tolerated, it is prohibited.

He completely avoids mentioning that the new Immigration Law in Arizona was passed to help protect Arizona residents, Hispanic and White, from drug dealers on killing sprees, and from Kidnappings that have been in so many numbers that Arizona is second in the World, only behind Mexico City as the Kidnapping Capitol. 

He has refused to do anything to help these people,  American citizens, White, Black and Hispanic, who are legally here, by continuing to build the Wall, which was started a while back, to help keep the majority of Illegals out of the country.   He refuses to secure the Borders.  Foreignors do not belong here unless they come in legally.  It’s the Law and Obama has no interest in enforcing the Law.   Now, why is that? 

Why would the President of the United States of America not give a damn about protecting the American people?  Maybe some news media person might consider asking that question, that’s if there are any left who actually care about reporting “NEWS”.

Obama has, because he knows that he has the “power of words”,  used those words, to encourage  those, many who are Illegal (and as far as I’m concerned, do not have the right)  to march and protest in our country.  He has welcomed their misconception of what is a right of an American citizen, and what, if any, are the rights of visitors to our country, much less what is the right, IF ANY, of an Illegal alien, in our country. 

I can assure you that Illegals DO NOT have the right to demand that America changes it’s Laws to satisfy their wants and needs. 

No President, no Czar, no Congressman, no Illegal, and no misguided American, can tell me that it is “Illegal” for me to demand, as an American citizen, that the Law of the Country, my country, be enforced and “NOW,”  and if I know anything, I know this;  that it is “My” right to speak out.   ss

Glenn Beck vs American Idol

April 22, 2010

It’s no secret to anyone who reads my posts, that I watch the Glenn Beck show every afternoon.   I also watch  O’Rielly,  Hannity,  Megan and Shepard on Fox.  I do check out the news on the other Networks  and watch Anderson Cooper also.   Glenn Beck has mentioned a few times about the number of viewers he has had, on any given day.  Many times it has been close to 3 Million, which is high for any talk show on Cable. 

I like Glenn’s show because he always backs up what he is saying by showing clips of the person he is talking about saying or doing something he said they did.  He always proves his point, unlike the other Networks who basically promote the opinions of their host.  That’s fine if I want their opinion, but I feel I’m more than capable of coming up with my own, based on fact.

Now, last week, I was watching American Idol and of course the Host Ryan Seacrest   mentioned or shall I say yelled out to the audience that something like 34 Million people voted after the previous show, for their favorite singer.  I do have to say that that’s a lot of people watching a program that basically gives a singing contract away to the winner.  I don’t know what the age is of the majority of the viewers, but I would think many or even most may be teens too young to vote in Presidential elections. 

Though I’m sure that there are quite a few, of those 34 Million viewers, old enough to vote in the National elections.  So, why are these same viewers,  not at all interested in what is going on in America and the fact that they are the ones who will eventually have to deal with the results of all these new Socialist laws being passed by Congress?   Do they not know that their personal Freedom and Rights are being taken from them by a group of appointed (Socialist Czars), elected officials (Congress and the President) and other Elitists who are determined to take total control of America, away from the people? 

So, this got me thinking, 3 Million people watch Glenn Beck, the Political talk show host who is trying to let Americans know what is really going on in Washington DC, and inform them on how the United States Congress is basically destroying our country by eliminating much of our Freedom.  Glenn has spent a little over a year trying to teach the American public about the US Constitution and what it means and warn us about who is trying to destroy America’s way of life.  Though only 3 Million people are watching, give or take a few, that number has put him in the number one position a number of times for a Political Cable talk/news show.  But why doesn’t he have more viewers than that?

Could it be that Fox News hasn’t realized yet, that the Glenn Beck show should be on during prime time?  Right now, in the Eastern part of the US, his show is on at 5PM.  The people who have jobs are either still at work or just leaving to go home for the night and by the time they get home, maybe after running to the grocery store on the way, he’s off the air.  It seems to me, without knocking any of the other Fox hosts out of their time slots, they should move the Glenn Beck show to at least 7PM.  By then people are done eating and have time to watch him.   The 7PM time slot is closer to Prime time and he should be able to at least double the number of viewers for his show.  So, Fox, how about it, let’s move Glenn to a later time slot and see if I’m right?

An article I read today in the New York Times, gave  the ratings for some TV shows,  that made me do some thinking.   Well, let’s look at Nielsen’s TV estimate ratings for last Monday nights; reality show “Dancing With the Stars”, according to Nielsen’s estimates, had 20.8 Million viewers, the premiere of a new show called “Romantically Challenged” had 11.6 Million viewers, on CBS that night a new episode of “CSI: Miami” had 11.7 Million viewers, and “Castle” on ABC, and one of my favorite shows, had 10.5 Million viewers.  Fox came in third for the night with “House” having 10.6 Million viewers and “24” also, one of my favorite shows, with 8.9 Million viewers.  

It appears that Americans are more interested in reality TV, like “Dancing With the Stars” and/or “American Idol”, “Survivor”, and the live shows like “What Not to Wear” (should include the clothes coming in from China, with the European look for women), then there’s “Hoarders” and the Cooking shows, etc., etc., etc., than in the actual survival of Freedom in their country. 

Yet, only 3 Million or less are watching one of the more  important Reality shows in the country which is the Glenn Beck Show.  Okay, I know it probably wouldn’t be considered a Reality show, but since the White House, and most of the other Networks (mostly liberal, left) are contributing to the bashing of Fox News and the Glenn Beck show, on a daily basis and trying to get Becks  show off the air, in every way possible, I will put it in the Reality category.  

Let’s see here:  Glenn Beck= 3,000,000 viewers,  American Idol= 34,000,000 viewers.  

So, what’s wrong with the over-all picture here?  It’s a little scary when more Americans are interested in who the next singing sensation will be, or what celebrity is the best dancer, instead of what the next American leader is going to be; an elected President of the Free world, or maybe a Communist Dictator or how about a Socialist Leader?  

For the last maybe 15 or 20 years I’ve heard on numerous occasions how the powers that be have been dumbing down America.  Well, all I can say is, “They have succeeded”.  Duh!    ss
