A FourSome – A Mistake

What the hell is House Majority Leader John Boehner thinking?

We are in the midst of a war to save the USA from destruction in the hands of the “Constitution-violating”  Obama Administration.  Why on Earth would House Majority Leader John Boehner and Ohio Governor John Kasich decide to go “business golfing” on June 18th with this obnoxious President and his “familiar” Joe Biden?

Millions of Americans are out of work, out of home, and struggling to pay basic daily bills – no less pay greens fees.  It is totally inappropriate, given this landscape, for them to be out sharing fun times with the opposition.  The “links” is no place to conduct the business of the USA  – in the best of times – no less now,  This is an insult to me, and I presume, to the overwhelming majority on the Right.  This outing, “….to smooth over some of their differences as they seek a compromise over raising the national debt limit and cutting spending”, is just a BAD move on Boehner’s part.  How dare he!

As for Kasich, granted, should the expected negative feedback arise, the Ohio Governor will have to answer first to his state constituents.  But, as a former House Representative, he is considered to still be a “DC Insider” with some clout remaining.  Yet what is he doing conducting and shaping the future of America by conducting business that is not HIS business?

This whole affair sours the stomach.  It calls to mind the arrogance of the Roman Senate, or olden France’s “let them eat cake” attitude. This is just one more proof of the fact that firstly, Government is a private “club” – regardless of political affiliation.  And secondly – no one in that club has any true concern for the people who hire them.

I suggest we all STRONGLY advise @boehner to not conspire with our proven enemy on the field of fun.

Pawlenty for POTUS?

Timmy, Timmy…..

Timmy, Timmy.  You have thrown your hat into the 2012 Presidential Election ring.  Grats for that, but I don’t know. You were elected governer of Minnesota, as a social moderate, in that “Blue State”. You then conveniently adopted a religious rights position, as well as your shifting ‘right’ on abortion and LGBT rights. All this just in time for your unsucessful attachment to the 2008 Presidential nominee John #McCain – as his veep runner.   I’m not sure how that “glitch” will play for the “big ‘ol boys” investment clique.  After all, they seem to always want a return on their gracious gifts.  It’s not you, mind you, it’s that numbers-crunching thing that always gets in the way – nothing personal.

I do have to tell you also, Timmy, that #POTUS is sort of a step up from “veep candidate wannabe”.  Should you press yourself upon the voters, what kind of hat do you intend to wear for the sake of the “moderates’?  Heck, you might not hold too much credibility among conservatives and moderates alike – you know – they not being sure, of just who you are, and all that nonsense.  One last silly thing.  I wonder how you will “ignite passion” among the electorate.  You just don’t seem to have any of that – well – you know.  Perhaps your “T-PAW faux hockey shirt will do the trick.

This writing is strictly an opinion, and to that we, if Americans,  are all so entitled, under the Constitution of the United States of America.

The Coming Fight For American Freedom

We are the future of America….

You may realize that we are entering into a political fight like none other in our lifetime.  You are likely concerned about what the future holds for America.  Like you, I am worried where the USA is headed.  Consider me just a common citizen who is very, very frightened over what I see going on around me.  So frightened, that I feel a need “write out” about what scares me.  I would claim insight and knowledge in doing so, but more likely, this sharing effort is based solely on instinct.

Have you seen the signs that this political fight will more akin to war, rather than simply a normal election cycle?  Do you realize that your well being, livelihood or very life may be at stake?  Are you prepared to see our country fall the way of 1934 Germany?  Realize, that the current Administration is already attacking our USA on a hundred different fronts simultaneously.  “They” have brazenly told us that we will be “dictated to”.  For instance, Obama’s friend – Zillionaire George Soros has been quoted as saying that he is devoting his life to the “destruction of America”.  Obama’s longtime Pasteur, the Rev Wright has preached: “God Damn America”.  Obama is a known “social organizer”.  Obama’s recent insulting speech at the border shows that he ridicules the very Constitution he swore to uphold.  Obama’s appointing of a “Czar Army” is in violation of the Constitution, yet he dismisses any protest as not being worth his time.  And on, and on.  I am sure you can think of many more examples of his “small irregularities” that do not “directly affect me” types of things.  Oh, but they do.

Once there was a people who believed that all “this will pass”, “they will tire of it”, and “all will return to normal”.  What followed were the forced-labor camps and genocide in Europe, as history attests.  Europe, – in fact – the world, did not believe that a madman of small stature would boldly attempt to take over (against all odds) his country, and drive it into tyranny. Yet, because of his boundless ambition, as well as the lackadaisical attitudes of those watching, he did /just/ that, and he went on to threaten half of the world.   As I see it, and from what I’ve seen, we will not be heard by this Administration, no matter how just our cause, or how strong we protest.  “They” have already taken off the hockey gloves and told us it is “game on”.  Be very concerned – no – be afraid.

But what can we do?  The answer is clear.  We do just as our strong predecessors did at the creation of America – we unite.  No, not necessarily by political party, but as a group of law abiding, God-fearing Americans.  We, who believe what the Declaration of Independence stood for.  We, who want our inspired Constitution followed.  Remember that we first – are individuals.  We must not put our fates into the hands of politicians.  Although many of them mean well, lack of positive results is the usual outcome.  Some use the excuse that “their hands are tied”.  Some are simply incompetent, or worse, they are “wind sniffers” who blend in with their peers.  I consider them cowards and, yes, traitors.  On a daily basis, they do not uphold the oath-of-office they swore to uphold.  And the worst among these, care only for their own profit and fame – at our cost.  Remember, if a politician is doing nothing to help you – then he/she is against you.  It is /that/ simple.

What then,  must we do in order to stem our march over a cliff?  DO NOT IDLE.  Without wasting another second, we should to begin to take action.  We need to take our collective “individualism” and unite with other dedicated American citizens to form a larger and larger body with like values and purpose.  We must demand to have America returned to us.  We need to “read the riot act” to those representing us.  Make them know that we are their employer, and they are not being supported out of kindness.  Tell them that we have rights, and they, along with us, have a duty to preserve those rights.  Regardless, do not rely on a favorable 2012 election result  to solve our problems.  It will take a lot of continued effort to put America back on the tracks.

So, become a group – and prepare to battle back – “measure for measure”, whatever it takes.  Where, when, or how we will come together, is not clear at the moment.   But as surely as green grass grows – with one strong blade next to another, and another – we must become a true “Grass Roots” force, ready to take action.  We should follow our favored ‘social outlets’ and blogs.  Obviously, do not trust the news media for more than weather reports.  They will either be in lockstep with “His Administration”, or they will be afraid to “ruffle feathers”.  We need to become creative in how we correspond, and how we source our news.  Have faith, and realize that none of us is alone in this.  This is our country.  We have a right to live here with dignity, and with liberty.  We are a good and patriotic people who love the United States of America,  and we shall prevail.

This writing is intended as a part of that mentioned ‘social outlet’ – Please refer others.

Politicians Are Talk Merchants….buyer beware!

Politicians are largely merchants of nothing but bull crap.  At least, I have never had to argue that point with anyone whom I valued personally.  Now, the politicians. That is how they got to be politicians in the first place.  They talk. That is all they do.  That is how they polished their pseudo skills to assure that they can continue as merchants of bull crap ad-infinitum.  They should be the LAST ones to speak for a country.  When I think of them, I get visions of togas, or ivy crowns on heads.  I picture the Roman Senate where some moron has a thumb tucked in a chest garment while flaying the other arm in sweeping gestures of: “just how wonderful I am in expressing my gaseous blather to one and all”.

Do you long for the days of Ozzie and Harriet, or Leave it to Beaver?  Do you remember when family values were the core example of how one would begin the daily business ahead?  Do you remember when it was alright to feel guilty that another was unfairly taken advantage of….no less that the other one was on the same team?

Where are the venerable “Mister Smith Goes to Washington” types today?  Too many people cannot catch on to the fact that they are completely duped.  And worse, they readily accept it, while paying for the privilege.
