AMERICAN HISTORY TAUGHT IN OUR SCHOOLS

We have been hearing and reading for quite some time how those who were responsible for the establishment of the United States of America might not have been such great people. The main reason for this was because they owned slaves.  The honoring or even the discussing of men such as Christopher Columbus, George Washington, John Smith (Jamestown), Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Hamilton, etc. was brought into question. For to do so, might offend people, especially blacks, who most likely descended from slaves.

The Civil War was a tumultuous time in this nation’s history, and the splitting  of the Union led to reverberations that can still be felt today. This is  something we never want to repeat. Are we teaching our children about it, so they can get an understanding of why we don’t ever want to go back there? Not from what I’m hearing and reading. To teach students about the Civil War might be offensive to some, especially black students. So, we refrain from teaching the history of the War Between the States so as not to offend.

During World War II, Japanese Americans were rounded up and relocated to camps in the interior U.S. These individuals lived on the Pacific coast, and sixty-two of them were American Citizens. These actions were ordered by President Franklin D. Roosevelt shortly after Imperial Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. I have a liberal friend, not Japanese, that keeps pointing this out to me in her quest to prove that the United States is a racist, evil, xenophobic, misogynist nation. Have I left anything out?

Following the detonation of the atomic bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing countless lives, but  saving more lives in the long run, and winning the war for the Americans, liberals now throw this back in our facse stating that America is a racist, evil, xenophobic, misogynist nation. Again, have I left anything out?

The United States of America was birthed in 1776, approximately 240 years ago. Using biblical stats, our civilization is around 6,000 years old. We’re a  young country. Even though I firmly believe that God was steering our founding fathers in the establishment of this great nation, our founding fathers were mere mortals, and in establishing the United States of America, they were doing something that have never been tried before. In other words, it was a radical experiment.

With the creation of the United States of America and the constitution which allowed for freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of expression, freedom of religion, the right to bear arms against a possible oppressive government, we put in place tools in which we could use to “right our wrongs” when wrongs most certainly would arise.

Because new Americans were, as I indicated above, mere mortals, it stands to reason that mistakes in the development of this experimental nation would be made. At times we would flip to the ways of the old world. But because of the constitution and the foundation that was in place, we gave the American citizens freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of the press, freedom to practice their religion or not practice religion. And because of these freedoms that were given to the American people through our founding fathers, guided by God, the American people put an end to slavery in 1865, less than 100 years after our nation was founded in 1776. In 1920, because of the constitution and the freedoms which were given to the America people, women were given the right to vote. Because blacks and other minorities were still considered second class citizens and didn’t have the rights they were originally granted under our constitution, Civil Rights legislation was passed in 1964.

Following the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the women’s movement began in 1970, whereby it became the norm for women to seek careers other than the formerly traditional careers held by women of secretary, school teacher, social worker, and nurse. It became commonplace for women to become doctors, lawyers, business executives, engineers, etc.

Because of the Constitution of the United States of America, put in place by our founding fathers, this country has been able to evolve to the point where every man, woman, and child has a chance to be anything they desire. In obtaining their goals and desires, not everyone is going to have the same path. Some will have it easy, others not so easy. Just remember, God never promised any of us a rose garden. Follow him, to the exclusion of everything else, and he will guide you and watch over you.

Back to our topic, we don’t appear to be teaching our children about the founding fathers and how this country was established because we’re afraid of offending certain groups. Instead, the American history taught in schools is full of America’s mistakes and how this country is racist, homophobic, misogynistic, and many other things. Thus, so many of our young people, particularly those we consider millennials, have no appreciation for how this country was founded, and are following philosophies such as socialism and even communism as ways that the United States should go forward as a nation. Redistribution of wealth, from each according to his ability and to each according to his need, tax the evil rich, screw big business, etc. have become the mantra of those who seek to destroy the cornerstones in which this country was built.

What is not realized by groups that are offended because our founding fathers may have owned slaves, because we were a nation which once recognized slavery, because we once were a nation where women were not allowed to vote, etc. is that the very bones of this nation provided the tools to right our wrongs. The founding documents, created by the founding fathers enabled the United States of America to eliminate slavery when slavery was prevalent everywhere on the planet. The documents created by the founding fathers enabled the United States of America to give women the right to vote when there was no other place on the planet where women had the right to vote. The documents created by the founding fathers enabled the United States of America to pass legislation to further give those other than white males the status and opportunities they rightly deserve.

But again, liberals have determined that it is politically incorrect to teach our children about our founding fathers, about the constitution, about the Civil War (something that we don’t want to ever repeat), about World War II where the Americans defeated two of the most evil regimes to ever exist in the history of the world. Instead, we’re teaching our children about how America is a racist, misogynist, xenophobic, homophobic nation which deserves to be weakened and eventually destroyed. Have I left anything out?

For the unfathomable mess that has been created, I don’t  blame individual teachers. They’re given textbooks and ordered to teach out of those textbooks. However, I do blame the teachers’ unions and other teachers’ organizations who side with the left.

Once our citizens become totally ignorant of how this country was founded, we will no longer have a United States of America. We will cease to be the land of the free and the home of the brave. We will have long forgotten the mechanisms that were established so that we would be able right our wrongs. We will have reverted back to old world ways, the ways those who persevered to come to the new world left behind.

The United States of America is a 250 year experiment that is on the brink of failure because we are not teaching future generations about American History and how to sustain our Republic.

PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE SPEECHES COMPARED

Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, began his acceptance speech stating that we’ll lead our country back to prosperity and peace and that we would be a country of law and order. He further indicated that the Republican convention occurred at a time of crisis for the nation with attacks on police, terrorism in our cities, violence in our streets, and chaos in our communities. Our way of life has been threatened. The above certainly indicates that our country is not a peaceful one.

HillaryTrump

In order to address the above issues, candidate Trump indicated that we needed a straightforward assessment of the state of our nation, and in doing this, we can’t afford to be smothered by political correctness.

Decades of progress made in lowering crime rates have now been reversed by this administration’s rollback of criminal enforcement. Last year homicides increased by 17% in America’s fifty largest cities, the largest increase in 25 years. In Washington D.C. killings have arisen by 50% and are up nearly 70% in Baltimore. In Obama’s hometown of Chicago, more than 2000 have been the victims of shootings this year alone, while more than 3,600 have been killed in the Chicago area since Obama became president.

The number of police officers killed in the line of duty has risen by almost 50%, compared to last year. Nearly 180,000 illegal immigrants with criminal records, ordered deported from this country are roaming free. The number of new illegal immigrant families who have crossed the border so far this year already exceeds the entire total from 2015.

Of course, presidential nomineeHillary Clinton mentioned nothing about the above in her speech except for a small blurb indicating that she wanted to reform our criminal justice system from end to end, and rebuild trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve. She wants to reform our criminal justice system, but the current system is the criminal justice system of soon to be ex-President Barak Obama. She’s pledged to continue the policies of Barak Obama and I would assume includes the criminal justice system, which is obviously corrupt, almost always excluding facts if a particular case involves a minority against someone white or a criminal against a law enforcement officer. That’s what liberals advocate. They don’t care about facts or evidence.

Other statistics quoted by Republican presidential nominee Trump include that nearly four in ten African American children are living in poverty while 58% of African American youth are not employed. Two million more Latinos are in poverty today than when Obama took office. Another 14 million Americans have left the workforce entirely. Household incomes are down more than $4000 since the year, 2000. Our manufacturing trade deficit has reached an all-time high. Obama has doubled our national debt to more than 19 million and we have nothing to show for it. Roads and bridges are falling apart. Airports are in third-world condition, and forty-three million Americans are on food stamps. To increase revenue to the federal government, Donald Trump plans to repeal Obamacare and replace it with something less costly and where the quality of healthcare will be higher. He also plans to lower taxes, not only on the middle class, but to cut the corporate tax rate so companies will have less of an incentive to take their operations out of the country.

Hillary states that she and those who are a part of her administration are going to build an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top. Isn’t that what Barak Obama was going to do, but his policies failed miserably in that regard? She also states that the economy is so much stronger than when Barak Obama first took office. Obama took office following the crash of 2008. Up until then the economy was doing well. Granted the price of gas had risen. And we all know that if the price of gas rises during a Republican administration, it’s the fault of the Republican president, but if the price of gas rises during a Democrat administration, the president doesn’t have anything to do with gas prices. While yes, the crash occurred under George W. Bush’s watch, the root cause was the social engineering done during the Clinton administration where banks were forced to make high risk loans, so that people who couldn’t afford houses, could now purchase houses. See Wing Nut Gal: Democrat Lies about George W. Bush, Part Three.

There is no economy that will work for everyone. Due to her history and her writings, she favors socialism over our current capitalistic economic system. Capitalism doesn’t work for everyone, but it works for most and produces overall prosperity. Socialism works for no one except for the extreme lower income segment and then produces conditions only slightly above the poverty level for all except the very rich. To achieve her economy which “works for everyone,” she’s going to tax corporations and the super-rich. First of all, define super-rich for us? I believe the way Obama defined it would have a couple, a firefighter and a school teacher in New York City, defined as super-rich. And of course, let’s increase taxes on those evil corporations, corporations who hire people, give people raises, and provide healthcare for those people. Let’s have more and more people losing their jobs so that we can have more and more people on food stamps. In other words, more and more people on the government dole.

Hillary states that Democrats are the party of the working people. NOT TRUE! http://wingnutgal.com/ideology/another-reason-the-democrat-party-is-anti-middle-class/.

Trump went on to indicate that internationally, our citizens have lived through one humiliation after another, such as our sailors being forced to their knees by the Iranian captors at gunpoint, just prior to the signing of Obama’s nuclear deal, which gave back to Iran, $150 billion and gave us nothing resulting in one of the worst deals ever made by the American government. Another humiliation occurred when Obama drew a red line in Syria and the whole world know it meant nothing. In Libya, our consulate was brought down in flames. Trump concluded, like most of us, the world is far less stable since Obama made the decision to put Hillary Clinton in charge of America’s foreign policy.

In 2009, before Hillary, ISIS was not on the map. Libya was cooperating. Egypt was peaceful, and Iraq was seeing a reduction in violence. Iran was being choked by sanctions, Syria was under control. After four years of Hillary Clinton, ISIS has spread across the region and the world. Libya is in ruins, Ambassador Chris Stevens and his staff were left helpless to die at the hands of savage killers. Egypt was turned over to the radical Muslim brotherhood, forcing the military to retake control. Iraq is in chaos. Iran is on the path to nuclear weapons. Syria is engulfed in a civil war. The refugee crisis now threatens the west. The legacy of Hillary Clinton is death, destruction, and weakness.

According to Democrat presidential nominee, Hillary, She’s proud that we have put a lid on Iran’s nuclear program. Ugh! How clueless can you be? She did mention ISIS and her strategy for defeating ISIS will be to strike their sanctuaries from the air, and support local forces taking them out on the ground. We will increase the quality of our intelligence so that we will detect and prevent attacks before they happen. We will disrupt their efforts online to reach and radicalize young people in our country.

No mention of Syria and the refugee crisis, of Libya, and of the four dead in Benghazi, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Not even a mention of the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt and the chaos in Iraq. If she’s elected, it looks like we will have more of the same with Hillary that we had with Obama, the failure to utter the words, “Islamic Terrorism,” the continuous lecturing to the American people to not judge Islam by the actions of a few, and the failure to take the threat of ISIS and other Islamic terrorist groups seriously. Instead, will we continue to blame Islamic terrorist attacks that take place on gun violence and call for more gun control laws?

Candidate Trump indicates that he plans to put America first, not globalism. He wants to make our neighborhoods safe, secure our borders, and protect us from terrorism. He will also outline reform to add millions of new jobs and trillions in wealth than can be used to rebuild America. While he doesn’t say how he’s going to do this, I have ascertained that he will increase revenues by decreasing taxes, thus allowing increases in wealth and higher tax revenues to the federal government. When more people have jobs and are prospering, more revenue to the government results.

Whenever Islamic terrorists pull off an attack on American soil, she will lecture us not to judge Muslims on the actions of a few. Subsequently, she will pontificate about gun violence in America and the need for more gun control. I also surmise than conservatives and Christians will somehow be blamed, even if the evidence clearly points to Islamic terrorism.

Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, stated that decades of record immigration have produced lower wages and higher unemployment rates for our citizens, especially for African-American and Latino workers. Thus, he is proposing an immigration system that works for the American people. He has indicated that he will build a wall on the Mexican border to stop illegal immigration and to stop the gangs, violence, and drugs from pouring into our communities. He has further indicated that we will stop, catch, and release on the border and will enforce rules for those who overstay their visas.

Hillary is proposing mass amnesty, mass immigration, and mass lawlessness. Her plan will overwhelm our schools and our hospitals.

Trump went on to indicate in his acceptance speech that he had made billions of dollars in business deals and now he wants to make the country rich again. America has lost nearly one-third of its manufacturing jobs since 1997, following the enactments of NAFTA, signed into law by then President Bill Clinton, and one of the worst economic deals ever made by our country.

Donald also indicated that he wouldn’t let companies move to other countries, firing their employees along the way, without consequences. But, if there’s no incentive for them to stay here, why shouldn’t they move. If he will follow through on his promise to lower the corporate tax rate and make this country a more corporation friendly nation, the migration to foreign safe havens will decrease.

Hillary supported NAFTA and China’s entrance into the World Trade Organization, another mistake. She also supported the job killing trade deal with South Korea and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

Donald indicated that he would not sign any trade agreement that hurts our workers or diminishes our freedom and independence.

While Hillary Clinton has proposed a massive tax increase, Donald Trump has proposed the largest tax reduction of any candidate who has declared for the presidential race this year. Middle America will get tax relief and taxes will be simplified for everyone. America is one of the highest taxed nations in the world.

Hillary’s simplistic solution is to tax the super-rich and the evil corporation. Guess she doesn’t care how many Americans lose their jobs, don’t get raises, or have their benefits either reduced or eliminated altogether.

Excessive regulation is one of the greatest job killers according to Donald Trump, costing our country as much as $2 trillion a year. Donald has indicated that he will lift the restrictions on the production energy.

Hillary wants to put coal miners and steel workers out of work, but Donald Trump has so indicated that won’t happen. She’s said this time and time again, even before accepting the Democrat party’s nomination for president. She said in her speech that the Democrat party is for working Americans. To this, I’ve always said BS and will continue to say BS!

Hillary spent much time during her acceptance speech trying to humanize herself, talking about her marriage to Bill, her role as a parent, and her role as a grandmother. She also discussed this nation’s founding fathers, as did Barak Obama in his speech to the Democrat convention delegates and attendees. What gives? I didn’t think we could talk about the founding fathers because they owned slaves. Furthermore, didn’t Obama once say that there were so many things that he would like to impose upon this country and its citizens were it not for the constitution?

She also spent time ripping Donald Trump to shreds. She accused him of calling women pigs. The only time I heard him refer to women as pigs was when he was talking about Rosie O’Donnell. Well, if the shoe fits?

I’ve said this over and over again, “Donald Trump was not my first choice for Republican nominee for president of the United States.” The truth is, however, that we can’t afford another four years or eight years of Barak Obama policies. The current president has almost destroyed the United States of America. With four to eight years of Hillary Clinton, this once great nation will be history. We can’t let that happen. We must take back our country, take it back from those who seek to destroy it. We must create prosperity. This will not happen if we continue to punish those who have made this country great, the private sector job creators and the folks who fill those jobs and work their fingers to the bone in order to succeed and provide good lives for themselves and their families.

While mentioning this country’s founding fathers in their convention speeches, Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton have failed to grasp the principles on which this country was founded, less government intrusion into our lives, and the freedom to succeed according to our goals and desires.

Donald Trump and his campaign has taken a lot of heat from liberals because, according to them, he gave a negative speech, and indicated that he wanted to make this country great again. Yes, he did point to areas where this president has made things worse, and that’s in just about every area of the federal government. Whereas, Hillary’s speech was all rosy with puppies and unicorns. Plus, she listed all the freebies she’s going to give out; such as free, single payer healthcare, college tuition, the guarantee of a good paying job for everyone. Socialist utopia? Isn’t that par for the course? The opposition party points out negatives and how he or she will make things better; whereas, the party in power points out the positives of the administration.

If we elect Hillary Clinton to the presidency, we can kiss the freedoms we once enjoyed as Americans good-bye. With Donald Trump, I see a vision of making American great again. Yes, the United States of America is still the greatest country on earth, but our way of life has taken tremendous hits under the administration of Barak Obama. This must change. Voting for Hillary Clinton or one of the minor candidates, or even staying at home on Election Day is a vote for the demise of the United States of America. Is this what you want?

CHILLING THINGS TAKING PLACE IN AMERICA – PART THREE

It’s good to know that I’m not the only one who things the current president of the United States has as his number one goal to destroy this country as we know it.

HAIL to the KING, Emperor of the United States of America!

HAIL to the KING, Emperor of the United States of America!

The following is part three of a series on chilling things taking place in America.

When setting up the government of the United States, our Founding Fathers established three co-equal branches of government so that no one person or group of people would have absolute power. The Founding Fathers also implemented a system of “checks and balances” whereby the three co-equal branches of government (legislative, administrative, and judicial) would oversee the passage of laws and the enforcement of laws.

Since assuming the office of the presidency, President Barak Obama has repeatedly taken it upon himself to declare law, eliminate law, and change law without going through Congress as required by the U.S. Constitution. He took it upon himself to instruct the Department of Justice to stop enforcing the Defense of Marriage Act and what immigration laws he wanted ignored and which ones to obey, among others.

Obama also bypassed Congress and decided to change the federal welfare laws in an obvious attempt to gather votes from America’s low-income sector. He took action to completely gut the work requirement from the Welfare Reform Act that was passed in 1996 and signed into law by former president Bill Clinton.

In his continuation to act without the consent of Congress, without Congressional approval or court order, Obama took it upon himself to release millions of dollars in money and weapons including a number of fighter jets to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. You will recall that Congress froze all federal aid to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood government because of their terrorist activities and inhumane treatment of the Egyptian people. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has called the United States an enemy like Israel that needs to be destroyed. Does this not constitute treason according to the U.S. Constitution?

In addition to the above, Obama has used a number of executive orders that would allow him to take over every form of communication, banking, and commerce in the declaration of an alleged national emergency. Also, Internet regulations have been established that would give Obama complete control of the Internet if he wanted it.

President Obama has continuously acted like he is above the law and has indicated if the leaders of Congress want to have a vote on whether or not what he is doing is illegal, they can have the vote. Then he will veto that vote because he feels that what he is doing is the right thing to do. He has never expressed that what he is doing is illegal or not, he simply says it’s the right thing to do. Well, excuse me, Mr. President, you cannot act because you think your actions are the right things to do. Barak Obama has become a dictator and the American people plus the media are allowing him to do it.

The current president has issued unlawful executive orders giving illegal immigrants amnesty. Then he dares an equal branch of government to vote on the legality of his orders, so he can veto it. There was no vote in Congress, no consultation with the House and Senate, no law that gave him the authority; he just did it.

A dictator is a ruler who is not effectively restricted by a constitution, laws, recognized opposition, etc. That definition clearly defines the current president as a dictator, something our Founding Fathers too many steps to avoid. The current president has grown so bold that he even boasts of his supreme authority and defiance of Congress.

And guess what? The American people and the American media are allowing him to get away with it. The average person on the street doesn’t realize how much things have changed since Obama took over as president. Because their individual life hasn’t changed all that much, they’re not aware of what is taking place. The Obama-zombies love and worship him to the point that anything he does is okay with them even though it violates the constitution. Except for a small percentage, the media will not hold him accountable for his actions because they’re in the tank for him.

Our Founding Fathers set up a government designed to prevent the United States from becoming a totalitarian dictatorship. Unfortunately that’s just what we’ve become. And, you know something? The American people have allowed it. And only the American people can put a stop to it. The question is, “Will we?”

THE POWER OF THE PRESIDENT

When I was very young, much too young to understand the workings of government, I know my country, the United States of America, had a President. I can’t remember how this conversation got started, but Mama, Daddy, and I had a talk about the President of the United States and the powers he has as President.

Mama and Daddy were quick to point out to me that the president was not all powerful and could not do anything he wanted as president. To get something done, he had to go through Congress (the Senate and the House of Representatives). Congress had to vote on and approve bills that the president wanted passed. From this long ago conversation, I gleaned that the president didn’t have much power at all, instead, he was charged with the responsibility of enforcing the laws that Congress passes.

I later, in school, learned about the separation of powers, the three branches of government, and the principle of checks and balances. The above were put in place by our founding fathers in order to preserve our republic and not allow us to evolve into a totalitarian state.

Being a baby boomer, I readily admit that I have taken our freedoms in the United States of America for granted. I grew up with the following:

  • Free, open elections of our political officials.
  • Freedom of speech to criticize our elected and appointed officials through different mediums.
  • Freedom to travel anywhere in this country and abroad.
  • A free and independent press to hold our government officials accountable.
  • Freedom of religion to worship as we saw fit or not to worship at all.
  • The freedom to pursue happiness and success.

We enjoyed these freedoms for so many years because no one particular person was in charge. The president was deemed the most important person in our governmental structure, but there were limits in what he could do fostered by a three-branched government and the system of checks and balances. Plus, there was that document called the U.S. Constitution that gives powers to the states that are not specifically outlined in the Constitution.

Sure, presidents have always had the power to implement their desires through executive orders. Some have used them more than others, but presidents in the past seemed to use them for more mundane things and the executive orders have not affected our day to day lives. Fast forward to today where we have a president who has indicated that he would go around Congress to put into place anything he wanted to implement. He says he’s doing things that he feels are right for this country, but he knows that Congress won’t pass these things.

This is not the way this country was set up to function. But this president’s followers seem to be mesmerized by him and think anything he does is wonderful. Plus, the press is on his side, not free and independent. Of course, the press has been in the tank for the left for decades.

According to teaparty.org in an article dated March 5, 2015, Obama publicly announced his supreme authoritative dictatorship. Confirming what I said above, our Founding Fathers purposely established a three branch government so that no one person or group of people would end up with absolute power. To pass a new law, it would take both the House of Representatives and the Senate to pass the same bill and then it has to be signed into law by the President.

The current president has repeatedly taken it upon himself to declare law, eliminate law, and change law without going through Congress as required by the U.S. Constitution. He took it upon himself to instruct the Department of Justice to stop enforcing the Defense of Marriage Act and what immigration laws he wanted ignored and which ones to obey, among others.

Obama has also bypassed Congress and decided to change the federal welfare laws in an obvious attempt to buy votes among America’s poor. In a move that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich refers to as illegal, the current president has taken action to completely gut the work requirement from the Welfare Reform Act that was passed in 1996 and signed into law by former President Bill Clinton.

Obama has continued to act without the consent of Congress. Congress froze all federal aid to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood government because of their terrorist activities and inhumane treat of the Egyptian people. Without any congressional approval or court order, Obama took it upon himself to release millions of dollars in money and weapons, including a number of fighter jets to the terrorist regime. Remember, Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood has called the United States an enemy like Israel that needs to be destroyed. That constitutes treason according to the U.S. Constitution.

Obama has also used a number of executive orders that would allow him to take over every form of communication, banking, and commerce in the declaration of an alleged national emergency. Furthermore, Internet regulations were established that would also give Obama complete control of the Internet if he wanted it.

Notice that Obama did not say that what he is doing is legal, but just the right thing to do according to him. He defies Congress to try and stop him from doing anything they believe is illegal.

By all of the above, he has established himself as a dictator, a king, a monarch. How could this have happened in a country where all precautions were taken to insure that something like this wouldn’t happen? President Ronald Reagan, in one of him most famous quotes once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spending our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

I wake up every morning wondering what Barack Obama is going to do today to further destroy the United States of America. With zombie-like low information followers who literally worship him and have ceded to him the power to control their lives because they view him as some sort of messiah, plus a main stream media who will not hold him accountable, we have not protected the freedoms our Founding Fathers established for us.

At this point, what can we do to preserve and protect our country? We’ve allowed an evil man to take control of our country. That evil man promised us hope and change. That evil man said he wanted to fundamentally transform the United States of America. Because folks were dissatisfied with the current administration, without stopping to think, they bought into this silver-tongued charlatan’s vile message and elected him not once, but twice.

What do we do now? What do we do now? When you think you have nowhere to go, think again. You do have somewhere to go; go to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I pray to him every night and every morning, and many times during the day to have mercy on the United States of America. Take everything to God in prayer. God is our refuge in perilous times. He will take care of his children.

CHANGING PHILOSOPHY OF WORK – PART TWO

Earlier this year, House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi said that ObamaCare facilitates the type of “liberation” that the Founding Fathers had in mind because it allows you to quit your job and become a photographer or a writer or a musician or whatever because you will have healthcare and no longer be job locked. Now that’s a new one, “job locked.” Almost as good as “sucks less.” In other words, Pelosi is saying that you can do something else with your life and not worked about health care.

Just when you think that it can’t get any worse in the “United Socialist States of America,” it does. This less than 300 year old country became great because of hard work, perseverance, and a desire for a better life. Did everyone always love their job? Of course not! Do all of us always love our current jobs? Of course not! Are there folks out there who hate getting up and going to work at their jobs? Of course! There have certainly been times in my life that I’ve hated my job. But you do it. You go to work because you have to provide for your needs and perhaps for the needs of others. You need that paycheck and the health insurance is nice.

What if we all did what the House Minority Leader is suggesting? We’d all be making less money and therefore paying less in taxes and be more dependent on the government. Ahh, that’s it, more dependent on the government. That’s what it’s all about isn’t it. So the federal government is now telling us that we shouldn’t have to work at jobs we hate, just drop out and follow your dreams and we’ve got your back.

While we’re pursuing our dreams and paying less taxes, who is filling in that revenue gap? The rich, of course! Yea, let’s just soak the rich. They can afford it. Besides they’re the ones who got rich by giving us those lousy stinking job things that were making us miserable. So, all of us previously job locked folks have quit our jobs and started pursuing our dreams, resulting in the rich not being able to get people to come to work for them. The rich then move their operations out of the USSA to a country where the corporate tax rate is lower and they can hire folks who’ll work a lot cheaper. The USSA is now comprised of folks who are pursuing their dreams and nothing else. Need I go further?

It seems as though the leaders of this country are discouraging working for a living unless you are doing something that you really love and are passionate about. It certainly sounds like they want everyone to have a perfect life with no trials and tribulations. To the liberals, that probably sounds wonderful. Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the current president care so much about us that they want us to always be happy and never experience any sadness. They want to provide for our every need so we’ll hunger no more, thirst no more, struggle no more, etc.
Now what does this sound like to you? They want to create Heaven on earth, maybe. They want government to take the place of God, for the government to be your god.

There are those out there that are probably going to come back at me saying, well, didn’t you do the same thing that Nancy Pelosi was suggesting. You quit your job to start your own business and that led to you having written your first novel, “For Best and Worst,” (release date to be determined). Yes, I did quit my day job that I hated to start my own business, but I had some money in savings and was prepared to pay for my own health insurance. Also, I’m supplementing my savings by doing some occasional consulting work.

Did I love writing the book? Yes, very much. Do I love all the stuff that goes along with writing the book? Some of it, but not all of it. Do I like working on the other aspects of my business? Yes, but there are times when I have to step outside of my comfort zone. Are things going to always be blissful for me? Absolutely not! Will there be times when I contemplate going back to a fulltime job and working under some jack ass’s thumb? Yes. Will I ever have to get a fulltime job and work under some jack ass? I hope not, and that’s what’s driving me to work fourteen hours a day. When was the last time that I spent a day not doing business related stuff? Christmas, I think.
