Random Political Thoughts –


constitution

Wonder if people will take notice ….. pray… get involved in regards to what is going on in the world today- The political processes have just run a “muck” and SOME of the American People, have been so hypnotized by President Obama either having a great deal of “swag” ( which I cannot stand that term in reference to a world leader ) or they are STILL happy because a black man is in the White House –

With so many people out of work……homelessness, drugs, murder, inflation, military scandals etc… it is even a wonder that America still has a leg to stand on and REMAIN RESPECTED from other world leaders within NATO – (seriously) Italy, United Kingdom to name a few are to say the least……”loosley” have our country’s back as the votes have shown this week. I wonder WHY President Obama has been the ONLY U.S. President who have NOT shown any loyalty to Israel? He has proven to be Muslim when “it is convenient” and has proven to be Christian when “it is convenient” for the last few years.

Trust me, with a black man being in the White House in 2008 until present is INDEED huge news. Nonetheless, it is as huge as what he does during his two terms in office…. Just like a quarterback is only as good as his “line protects” him – nose tackle etc.

When things do not go the way the president wants, he blames CONGRESS and when things do not go the way congress wants, they blame THE PRESIDENT. I mean, when is America going to realize that every department is needed to effectively run a country even if the president is CHECKERBOARD!  ( F.Y.I. but being black is not enough to run a country! )

Praying that when AMERICA “eventually goes to war with Syria”…….our homeland soil can remain to be protected — After September 11th and with it also fast approaching – I am a bit worried – but Thank goodness = PRAYER still works.

The Mindset of Some Cultures

Although this is a cartoon BUT there is truth all through it. I mean really, which headstone is Trayvon Martin? Martin Luther King Jr.? Emmett Till? Darrell Turner Jr? and thousands of other black INNOCENT males? Huh?

Point is that I do not EVER want any of these tombstones to be be connected to or be a representative for anyone who did no wrong to be there.

Let alone yet ANOTHER “racial profile” black male..  Let alone either one if MY OWN sons!

There sure are a lot of people criticizing the United State’s Federal Government. They say things such as; the Federal Government is wasteful, corrupt, incompetent, and inefficient. And whereas, one could say with such a huge blob of bureaucracy one is bound to find some inefficiencies, waste, corruption, and incompetence right? Sure that makes sense, nothing is perfect, not you, your family, not your company, and not your closest friends either.

Not long ago, I was debating this with an acquaintance who stated; “There are holes in the system.” Well, indeed, there always will be, it is the nature of complex systems and Murphy will always exploit the weaknesses. My acquaintance also noted; “There are both right and wrong policies. Good and bad policies.” Yes, and it would be hard to argue with that either. And when it comes to incompetence, yes, there are “Competent officials and incompetent officials.”

Surely, I think we all accept that, or should at least be honest with ourselves on those points. Likewise there are corrupted and less-than-corrupt officials, at all levels of the bureaucracy. Now, my acquaintance asks a most dubious question, one not often asked; “The question is; are the scales tipped in the wrong direction?”

Okay so, that is one way consider it, however, I’d like to form a different question, as I am not so comfortable with where the answers to this question takes us. You see, since historically political decisions lead to unintended consequences, shouldn’t government be smaller, making fewer decisions, therefore they’d have fewer messes to clean-up. Further, if government makes a mess, why would we put our faith in their ability to fix it?

Let’s discuss one more inquiry in this thought of the day, shall we? “Is there more wrong, bad and incompetence than right, good and competence?”

Once again, I’d like to state that maybe that is the wrong question to ask as well, because, maybe the system is not working because it’s gotten off track;

1.) Revolving Door of Politicians, Bureaucrats, regulators, government lawyers going to work for those who work to abuse the system, using those insider connections.

2.) Abuses of privileges of all three branches of government, over stepping their checks and balances. Legislating from the bench, obscure executive orders, DOJ witch hunts of other branches, legislators interfering in regulatory investigations, etc. etc.

3.) A pay-to-play government, for lobbyists, corporations, unions – without the ability for a citizen or small businesses to express their concerns.

If the system of checks-and-balances has been corrupted, then in reality it does not exist, without it, the natural human tendencies will rear their ugly heads early and often. Some might say that it’s because “democracy is messy” as Obama said in his State of the Union Address. No, I’d say that Chicago Mafia style dirty politics is messy, and it’s no way to run the greatest nation in the history of mankind.

“This is not a perfect world we live in!” get it?…got it?… IM GLAD! >>> done venting!
