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

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

What is the Biggest Problem facing Obama?

October 1, 2010

I understand in a town hall speech President Obama said something about the fact that the biggest problem He and the Dems face is the group, Americans for Prosperity. 

What I find really strange is that Obama would have the nerve to accuse any American of being this nations biggest problem, when it is very clear that the only problem America has is a President WHO:  

  1. Refuses to prove he was born here.
  2. Refused to wear the American flag pin when he was running for office.
  3. Sat in a church for over 20 years, claiming he had no clue that Rev. Wright was a Radical and basically hated America.
  4. Did not want his middle name used while campaigning “Hussien”.
  5. Apologized to the world because “HE DECIDED” that America has been arrogant to foreign countries.
  6. Twisted the arms and bullied Dems to vote for a Health Care Bill the majority of Americans did not want.
  7. Actually married a woman who was not ever proud of her country (until her husband happened to be elected President, that is).
  8. Called a Boston Cop, doing his job, Stupid (when he admittedly said, “ I wasn’t there so I don’t know what happened, but”.)  You know the rest.
  9. Hired Czars to oversee the Cabinet, and pay them our tax dollars when the majority of them are not qualified, and are Socialists, Marxists, and Radicals, and basically, not needed.
  10. Shut down drilling in the Gulf, and put more Americans out of work
  11. (This one is my opinion) claims that all the oil from the BP spill is out of the Gulf, and the fish are okay to eat.  Yet scientist say the Crude is on the bottom (where fish feed).   Well, I’m not a scientist, and I really feel sorry for the Fisherman, but I just can’t bring my self to buy fish, swimming in and eating their food mixed in and with crude oil.  Maybe we can sell them to China.
  12. Sued a Governor because she was trying to protect the citizens in her state.
  13. Continuously promotes racism.
  14. Has an agenda “I’m going to fundamentally change the foundation of America”, that he called “Change”, which he used to mislead the Americans.  Obama’s definition of “Change” in my mind is “Destroy”.

 I could go on, but hopefully more Americans will realize that this guy was never raised as an American, his most informative years were spent in Indonesia, where the largest segment of the population is Muslim. 

Therefore, he was never taught American values and ideals.  He was never taught to have pride in his country (if it actually is America.)  This upbringing in a Muslim country would certainly explain his constant need for acceptance from the Middle Eastern people. 

This fact should be apparent to all, yet the media has chosen not to mention this point   I never hear anyone discussing this fact, but I truly believe his allegiance is to the Muslim world and think his actions have proven that.  Growing up in a foreign country at such an informative age certainly does explain his condescending attitude towards the American people.

There is no way I will ever believe that he has America’s best interest at heart.  I do not believe that the President is a Patriot.  ss

Obama: Divide and Conquer

August 11, 2010

“I don’t want to pit Red America against Blue America. I want to be President of the United States of America.”

Barack Obama, speech, Nov. 10, 2007 

How can a man who said these words, who professed himself to be the “One” who would unite America, end up doing just the opposite, and in a very big way.  I always believed that actions speak louder than words and yet, with Obama it has always, only been words.  Pretty words, sophisticated words, meaningful words, well written words, by someone else, words he has read, not words that he meant or words that he truly believed in and in the end, it has only been empty words, nothing more and nothing less; just words. 

I have compared the words, someone else’s word, that Obama has read in speeches, and though they have a certain meaning, a certain ring that cannot be ignored, those beautiful words, that so many rave about, I have concluded that they have no meaning for the man, President Obama, who claims to own them. 

I can sadly say I have seen the results, not of his words, but of his actions and have seen no proof that he has attempted to unite anyone who would normally disagree.  I have seen no effort on his part to unite, but have seen a deliberate, constant and on going attempt on his part to divide, and he does it well. 

So, I sat here today and just wrote “words” that in my opinion represent the actions that President Obama has used not to unite but to divide Americans.  He has, in my opinion, promoted hatred, racism, and distrust among the following:

 Black vs. White                                                          America vs. Israel

Haves vs. Have Nots                                                America vs. China

Gays vs. Straight                                                        Legals vs. Illegals

Hispanics vs. Whites                                                 Blacks vs. Hispanics

Overweight vs. Thin                                                  Socialism vs. Free Enterprise

Family vs. Family                                                      Jews vs. Arabs

Young vs. Old                                                              Muslims vs. Christians

Small Business vs. Big Business                            America vs. Britain

Unions vs. Non Union                                               Mexican Gov. vs. Arizona

Educated vs. Uneducated                                        States vs. States

Americans vs. Wall Street                                       Federal  Gov. vs. Arizona

Democrats vs. Republicans                                    Oil vs. Green Energy

Non-Global Warming vs. Global Warming       Democrats vs. Sarah Palin

Democrats vs. Glenn Beck                                       Democrats vs. Tea Partys

Democrats vs. Democrats                                       Fed. Judges vs. Voters

Good vs. Evil                                                               Obamacare vs. American People

He has pitted people against people, Americans against Americans, Religions against Religions, States against States and Countries against Countries.   He has actually done in the real world what most people only read about in books “Divide and Conquer”.  

There is one campaign promise he did keep, he definately brought “Change” to America!

My question is,  “What the hell are we going to do about it”?  ss

Mr. President: Leave the Morse’s Line Port of Entry Alone

July 14, 2010

At the Morse’s Line Port of Entry, on the U.S.-Canada border, the border station is located smack-dab in the middle of a Vermont dairy farm. On average, 2 1/2 cars pass through an hour. Basically there are approximately 40 cars per day that go thru this border crossing into Canada or from Canada into the US. 

Note that  the U.S. Department of Homeland Security:  The government, which got $420 million from the federal bailout to modernize land ports like this, wants to spend about $7 million to build an expanded station. To do it, the government says, it needs an adjoining 4.9-acre parcel now used to grow hay and corn.    The government is trying to use the “Eminent Domain” law to confiscate almost 5 acres for this Dairy farms land.

Now, their actions will basically put this family’s Dairy farm out of business, because they need all the acres they have for their cows to graze on.

I am extremely upset with Home Land Security for even considering putting this family, this small business, out of business, just so they can use some pork barrel money, to add on to a border patrol building site, where only 40 cars a day pass thru, and to spend $ 7 million dollars to do it, is crazy.

 Mr. President, I thought your message to the people when you ran for office was that  you were going to help the small businesses?   

Leave this man and his small family Dairy business alone.  Try keeping one promise will you?  Send that $7 million dollars to Arizona, where it’s truly needed.  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

Happy Birthday America!

July 4, 2010

Today is the 4th of July.  There has been a TV marathon of John Wayne movies the entire weekend.  Theses movies that John Wayne, a great actor, starred in, were about World War II, the war with the British, Civil War, the Alaskan Gold Rush, and settling the West, as Ranchers and Farmers.  All excellent movies, which showed the perseverance, the drive, determination, and the strength of the first men to land on our shores and what they went thru just to stay alive.  The Baby Boomers will remember these movies, with fond memories.  Many veterans will remember the events depicted in these Hollywood gems. 

For myself, I always watch these movies and think about what it would have been like to actually live then and endure the hardships of those times and events. 

The Pilgrims were the true adventurers, because they came to this country from Europe to a land not knowing what to expect, but prepared,  for anything, so they thought.    I don’t think they realized how difficult it would be to survive here.  The first winter most of them died from starvation or disease because they had run out of food, and the weather was extremely cold and they became sick.  Those who had survived went on, they were fortunate to meet some friendly Indians that showed them how to grow corn and other crops, native to America, and how to hunt and fish for food.  More of them survived the next year. 

As news of America traveled back to Europe, more people decided to come here to start life anew.  They endured many hardships but did not give up.  They cleared the land, started building towns, churches, schools, and country stores with supplies brought over from Europe.  They traveled past the outskirts of town and laid stakes for their own homesteads.  Many had large parcels of land, and they had to clear the land, cultivate the soil and plant the seeds they brought with them from Europe.  They grew crops, and soon they brought beef (Cattle and Sheep) over from Europe and started ranches where they were raised for food, and were sold on the open market.    

Survival was not easy.  Most people died young.  They had to fight the weather, drought, bitter winters, and illness with no doctors for hundreds of miles, and no medicine.  They fought unfriendly Indians and marauding outlaws.  They fought neighbors for the rights to water.  They had to dig irrigation ditches for their crops and dig wells for drinking water.  This they did because they wanted to be Free from the Royalty that ran Britain.  They wanted to be free from paying taxes to the Crown.  They wanted the chance to become rich and were willing to work for it and die for it. 

These settlers fought the English, the Spanish, the Indians, outlaws, the weather, disease, starvation, and all this they did, just to get a taste of Freedom.  The Founding Fathers after much arguing as to whether or not they should become a nation unto themselves, and break away from England, finally signed The Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776  which is 234 years ago today. 

I often think about the fact that I was fortunate enough to be born in America.  No matter how difficult life is at the present, we in America are still better off than any other country.

Americans are a compassionate people, they are strong, driven and determined to succeed.   Americans are a dependable people, they will always come to the aid of those in need, it matters not if they are rich or poor, and Americans will be there to help those who cannot help themselves.  Americans offer what no other people offer, Freedom, and they will fight along side any man or country who wishes that Freedom for its people, just ask the British, the French and the Italians, if this is not so.

America not only offers, but guarantees that it’s people have the right to political liberty, religious freedom, economic opportunity and the pursuit of happiness.  defending it, and it takes work.

Why has America survived all these years?  It has survived because we have the  The Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution and The Bill of Rights, upon which our laws are based. They are the law of the land and  the laws apply to all its people.

Foreigners  want to live in a country with laws that limit the power of government and secures the liberty of its citizens.  People from all over the world come to America for a chance to live in a country where one can be anything they wish to be.  A country where one can get an excellent education, start a business and make money.  Yes, money certainly is a big part of why people want to come to America, because we have free enterprise and competition here, and anyone can take part in this economic arena and with hard work become successful.

People will risk everything to come to America, because American offers them hope; they rather die successful and rich, than in despair and broke. 

We understand the hopes and desire of all those who have the dream of coming to America and pursuing a life full of possibilities. All we ask is that it is done in a legal manner.  We are a country of laws.  We must obey these laws and so must those who wish to come here.

So, today on Independence Day I ask Congress to do their duty and enforce the Immigration laws that have been on the books for years and help protect the people of Arizona, and the other Southern states.  Do your duty or we will do ours in November and vote you out of office.  This is our right!

As an American,I am willing to fight for those who wish to be free, as our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan are doing.  I only ask that the Iraqi’s and the Afghans fight along side our troops for the Freedom that they wish to have.  This is their chance to be Free, so they need to fight for it, like our American ancestors did and as we continue to do today.

To President Obama: As Americans we are imperfect as all God’s children are.  We are a driven people and we have worked hard to build a country where the right to be Free applies to all.   We, the people are a Christian nation at heart.   We are a proud people.  We are a Patriotic people.  We are a generous to a fault people.  We will fight to the death for the right of any man to be free.

Mr. President, we are not an arrogant people. Speak for yourself if you must, but do not apologize to the world for me.

Happy  234th  Birthday   America!
