Speaking Up –


Former President, William Jefferson Clinton on his views about SYRIA

I would feel A GREAT DEAL more confident if this man was in The White House right now -It is “indeed” NO SECRET, that President Bill Clinton does something to me mentally when he speaks or when I am reading something in reference to what he stated…. A mature, educated POLITICAL orator just  tickles MY FANCY! However, on a serious note – Clinton knows what to do –

 Is he perfect? NO… Is he more EXPERIENCED? Yes……

“If you believe that maintaining power and control and absolute freedom of movement and sovereignty is important to your country’s future, there’s nothing inconsistent in that [the US continuing to behaving unilaterally]. [The US is] the biggest, most powerful country in the world now. . . .

But if you believe that we should be trying to create a world with rules and partnerships and habits of behavior that we would like to live in when we’re no longer the military political economic superpower in the world, then you wouldn’t do that. It just depends on what you believe” — President Bill Clinton

Personally, I just do not “care for” the way President Obama went to CONGRESS on a decision that had the AUTHORITY to make – (Mr Commander in Chief)

Hey trust me, ” I get it“… Obama is thinking that “if this war goes wrong” and does a great deal of damage to the American people / United States military families losing thousands more of their sons, daughters, uncles, fathers, sisters, mothers, etc…. THE BALL  JUST WONT FALL ON ME….. It will be “Congress’ fault as well”……

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.

Such An Embarrassment –


These folks are FOOLS! I mean, I am NOT ONLY upset because George Zimmerman got off guilty …I AM UPSET BECAUSE A GREAT DEAL OF THINGS go wrong in the American justice system. To be honest, Trayvon Martin’s case just was yet ANOTHER cherry on top of the high stack of issues in this country…. BUT the people in this video are very foolish!

I am not and will not go out and loot neighborhoods and these folks are so idiotic that they are LOOTING and ROBBING their OWN neighborhoods!!  Ugghhh – so idiotic that this is crazy! People any type of education and with  jobs who had to get up in the morning surely was not out there robbing and attacking the police in the late hours at night acting a fool and trying to use TRAYVON MARTIN’S DEATH for the excuse to steal and act a fool! The stores that are being looted..those people own businesses and HAVE INSURANCE POLICIES for this type of nonsense……

Only in AMERICA –

P.S. African-American black men NEED to take this same anger and STOP fighting and killing EACH OTHER too!!

Because I am sooooooooooooooooo sick of hearing that “THE WHITE MAN” did everything wrong when it comes to things that do not go right in their lives!!

Light skinned man kills Dark skinned man BUT blames White skinned man?? STOP IT!! The white man cannot take all the negative credit – look on the news…look in your neighborhoods….look within your household….look in the mirror too! Come on people – this anger is NOT ONLY about Trayvon Martin, it is a multiplicity of things why people are angry – let us have a few in depth conversations to see where do we go from here and how MORE things can be fixed! It is a crying shame to use the death of a mourning family to use the death of their son as an excuses or scapegoat to act a fool when the problem indeed is bigger than poor Trayvon Martin and a whole slew of other African American murdered males.

OKAY ALREADY!!! I already have a “hard time” with so many “overly” urban slangs…..dress codes….laws….etc..etc..etc.. However, why is it totally alright to interview a world leader with a huge urban hat on your head? I am almost 100% percent sure that the INTERVIEWER may have been advised to wear something to COVER UP his multiplicity of MASSIVE dread lock collection that moves out of control on his head  However, with a suit on and an upgraded version of a MIX BETWEEN a doo – rag and a baseball cap still is not appropriate – if he is Muslim, wear a turban but he isnt.. so that is I guess – indeed my point…

Should I care? Maybe…..maybe not – but I am just so over people as well as our current president being OVERLY way too cool about everything! Then with the whole White House ” cute joke ” with the 2012 Summer Olympic Gymnast was just soo should NOT have been posted in the media! You can do all of the “inside jokes” that he wants to but does it ALL have to hit the media?

I dont want the world leader being known for listening to gangster rap either! If he likes Jay – Z and rapper 50 cent, that is FINE and his choice BUT can we keep that on the hush? Ummm maybe because in their lyrics they are calling women bit___ and hoes?… I  mean really… especially since HE THINKS so highly of his lovely wife Lady Michelle Obama and he adores his two little girls? Oh yeah… Beyonce is very beautiful but her attire and some of her lyrics as well are not  suitable for little girls, right Mr and Mrs Obama? Try NOT to share every little detail please! Maybe Beyonce can teach your daughter what the meaning of ” A Hustler ” is… it is one of her songs and I am SURE that you would not mind because Beyonce is a role model for both of yor daughters… So MENTOR AWAY!!!

 

Maybe I am crazy huh? Stop being ” soo cool” and start being ” soo respected”….. I want A WORLD LEADER to be respected and not just ” deemed as being cool and having swag”….UUUGGGHHH!!

More Political Talk / Views


Every belief that citizens try to express politically is rooted in some philosophy or religion or some set of assumptions about society and its
well-being. They do not come from out of nowhere. Religiously-based convictions about society and morality are as legitimate as those that spring from non-religious philosophies. Hence, Christians, Muslims, or Jews may seek to get laws passed that are rooted in their religious convictions. Such laws are appropriate as long as they have a secular purpose and do not constitute an establishment of religion.

Whether these laws are wise or worthy of enactment must be judged by whether they promote the common good as judged by national values not by the fact that they are or are not rooted in the religious faith of those who support them.

A religious foundation is neither required not forbidden. Neither secular humanism nor religious faith is privileged in this regard. Ideally and in principle, religious believers should not seek to get laws passed on religious grounds but because they express the values of the secular society. These norms and goals are defined by the founding documents and cultural traditions as they have come to be embedded in the common life. For example, if people of faith want to crusade for universal health coverage, e. g., they should argue for the policy not because the Bible or the Pope authorizes it or because God wills it but because it promotes “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” and because Congress is constitutionally permitted to spend money to provide for the “general welfare.”

Likewise, religious groups that seek to outlaw racial or gender discrimination should make their case on the claim that it would be good for society as a whole not on the fact that it is authorized by their religious faith.  In practical terms, however, if believers feel that distinguishing between the religious
basis and the political implications of their faith is an intolerable splitting of a unitary set of beliefs, then let them act accordingly. If  people actually
convince other voters to support legislation because the Bible, the Pope, Buddhist teachings, the Koran, or church doctrine mandates it, not much can be done about it except to make an effort to persuade them that there is a better way.

TRUST ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We cannot determine or control the reasons why people vote or support the policies they do or prevent them from convincing others to do the same. In the voting booth citizens are a law unto themselves. They can vote for whatever or whoever they want for any reason that motivates them. It is pointless to demand purity of principle on this matter. Voters act out of prejudice, self-interest, racial identity, ignorance, and for all sorts of other good and bad reasons, including their religious beliefs, philosophical commitments, and a devotion to justice based on American principles. Let us be realists about the matter.

 

Democracy is an untidy, often VERY messy,  matter…..IF you do not believe me… look at AMERCIA! Ugghhhhh……

The people can do what they want restrained only by Constitutional mandates. But it is better when acting politically in the public arena for believers to translate  religiously-based beliefs into the traditions, language, and values of the secular order. This is called for as a matter of principle. It is advisable pragmatically as well, since the tying of policy or voting explicitly to the tenets of a particular
religion, denomination, or sect may repel  large number of voters and hinder rather than further the cause.
