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”……

One Word >>>>>> BOLOGONA

Who Is In Office?


Oval%20Office020

Ummmm… last time that I checked…. A United States President “represented” power and he or she ( Hillary 2016 ) was able to make MAJOR EXECUTIVE DECISIONS without the “okay” from congress…….. ( folk that represent the 50 states within the United States )…….

For a mega power county leader to NOT make a decision because he wanted “others” to be apart of the process is MIND BOGGLING to me…. I mean if you want CONGRESS “to help you” to decide…. WHY ARE YOU IN OFFICE? For all that , I should have AT LEAST ran for office…..

I mean the WORLD is watching and I am sure that although this is President Barack Obama’s last term in office he is thinking of his legacy. Well, Mr. President, there are tons of other things that has already transpired during your two terms so your legacy will NOT look like Lyndon B. Johnson, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy or Bill Clinton.

I mean – is this really AMERICA in this crisis right now? Families of military troops are all excited that the United States has been slowly but surely being pulled from the Middle East……. but if we know our great country of AMERICA – those same troops that were promised a date to “go home” with their families will be DETOURED TO SYRIA!

Ugghh… I wish that the country that I lived in operated with more BACKBONE – and why did no one care about SUDAN when ( and still ) going through all of the killings….. MASS MURDERING / RAPES etc???

Centrist Party – The Centrist Ideology


imageThe Centrist Party need not be a mush of compromises between extreme positions.  It should take the best of each party and ditch the nonsense.

Keep the Republican belief in personal responsibility; the respect for wealth creation and the power of markets; the healthy skepticism of what government can and cannot accomplish; and the recognition that taxes and regulation come with an economic toll.

Toss aside the oversimplified view that government is always bad and that lower taxes are always good; the sad and reckless denial of climate change; and the outmoded views on social policy, particularly gay marriage, that are antithetical to the whole notion of keeping government out of our private lives.

Keep the Democrats’ concern for working people; the commitment to a strong social safety net and social tolerance; and the recognition that government must play a crucial role in protecting us from the most egregious abuses of capitalism, including environmental damage.

me

But ditch the policies that are necessary solely to win a Democratic primary, not fix the country:  an overly cozy relationship with the largest unions, particularly the teachers unions; an unwillingness to address the looming costs of our entitlement programs; an unseemly populism that too often treats the forces of wealth creation as a problem rather than a solution.

The Centrists will be fiscally sensible, socially progressive, and committed to the kinds of compromises that will appeal to the tens of millions of voters, particularly younger voters, who are currently without a political home.

Obama – and “his care”


A big change in America’s health care system is coming at the beginning of next year.

The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, will go into full effect in 2014, giving millions of uninsured Americans access to health care.

However, there are still misconceptions about the law.

In today’s Just Explain It, we’ll tell you five things you might not know about Obamacare.

Number one… Contrary to what 42 percent of Americans think, Obamacare really is happening. In fact, people can start signing up for state-run health insurance on October 1st. That’s when states and the federal government will open marketplaces, called exchanges, to offer subsidized benefits to the nation’s 50 million uninsured.

Number two… Another survey found that a majority of Americans think the law cuts Medicare benefits and covers undocumented immigrants. It doesn’t.

Actually, the government expects the average Medicare recipient to save approximately $35,000 over the next ten years.

 Number three… Tax credits. Next year, health insurance for eligible individuals or families will be subsidized.

For example, someone making just under $23,000 a year wouldn’t have to spend more than 6.3 percent of their annual income on health insurance. Based on a $3,030 plan, their contribution would be $1,450. Under Obamacare, they’d receive a tax credit of $1,580 to put towards their coverage.

Number four The 80/20 rule. Insurers are now required to spend at least 80 percent of premium dollars on providing healthcare. The other 20 percent can be used on overhead expenses like excessive administrative costs and profits. In 2012, this provision saved Americans over two billion dollars.

If insurers don’t comply, they’re required to provide customers with a rebate. In 2011, over 13 million consumers received $1.1 billion in rebates – that’s around $150 per customer.

And finally… taxes. No matter what you’ve heard, your health benefits under Obamacare will not be taxed. The law does require that employers report the value of your annual coverage on your W-2, but the government says that’s just for workers’ information.

In the end, the Affordable Care Act is incredibly complex piece of legislation I AM SURE THAT THE PRESIDENT AND OTHER HIGH POWERED POLITICIANS WILL NOT HAVE OBAMACARE.

It enacts sweeping reforms that involve every state and millions of Americans. Do you think it will work for you? … Siggghhhh and Blaahhh

My Random Opinion Via North Korea –


wpid-20130409_173842.jpg

Talking to your family and especially your younger kids about what is GOING ON IN THE WORLD right now is very vital. These kids are walking around listening to music on their i-phones with NO KNOWLEDGE if the very city that they live in is planning a strategy for any types of attacks….

President Obama will not say it, and our leaders in Washington will not say it as they do not want to escalate the situation. But as early as I can remember back in the 70’s when my father started teaching me about WORLD POLITICS that  North Korea has been a problem child since before the 1950’s.

HOWEVER,  if they attack and kill even one American soldier or civilian, I will advocate the nuclear destruction of that country so that not one person or stone is left standing. The time of petty warlords and dictators trying to control more than their own country is over. South Korea is a soviergn nation.

North Korea leader Kim Jong-un smiles as he salutes during a military parade to celebrate the centenary of the birth of North Korea founder Kim Il-sung in Pyongyang

The freedom to rule their own nation with threats by it’s neighbors is absolute as is China’s. No Nation should in this time have to live in fear of having a tyrant of another nation invade and take away their freedoms. I also urge that IF war is to happen, Then China start at the top of North Korea and South Korea and the United States start from the south and we will meet in the center for a drink of tea. (so to speak )

China will control what ( so to speak ) lands it had to go to war with and South Korea will control the lands they had to fight of invaders in and there will no longer be a North Korea and a leader that apparently cannot lead or is listening to very bad advice and not using his own common sense!

Well……I am just RAMBLING AND VENTING but via China is concerned…..

China will not help any North Korean aggression. They know the price is too high. Not in nuclear terms, either. No one is that stupid, even if some blowhards advocate that “solution”

God – Politics – Kids – Opinions – Church

God indeed is everywhere and sees everything BEFORE things even occur. Nevertheless, I have often heard so many people say why God… where was God…..when God in reference to shootings on school grounds.

Well according to legislation that has been passed for some years now, ONE MOTHER did not like that her son had to take part in a prayer in school and she fought to have a right to say NO to prayer. She was so gun ho about her beliefs that a bill was created and prayer from ALL SCHOOLS WAS REMOVED!

Now please keep in mind that was the opinion of only ONE MOTHER – sad to say….there were no marches… no other parents showed a huge concern in disagreement with her, no one else went to Capital Hill to fight against what she wanted the lawmakers to do etc..etc..etc.. churches did not protest or even make the situation apart of their morning sermons like they usually do when there is a public issue –

227001_10151943234076992_1983320076_n

People mostly felt that this bill would not pass due to it being her OWN OPINION of what she felt her daughter should not have to be doing. Sadly, a great deal of people do not understand that is REALLY WHAT POLITICS is – the opinions of people who feel that their way of life is best suited for most communities, cities, counties, states etc. and they vote on it and MAJORITY RULES!

Another sad thing is that this prayer has been done in schools from the beginning of time ( fourscore and seven years ago as President Abraham Lincoln would say ) and this prayer is DONE IN CONGRESS and they still bypassed that and passed legislation on the same GOD that is written all over our money, school houses, churches and even legislation!!!!

So back to the questions of where was God…why God…when God…
Well I would like to ask this question to the PEOPLE THAT BELIEVE IN PRAYER………. Where were YOU when you got wind that this legislation was brought before Congress?

Because, one lady asked for God to be removed from schools… the flood gates of people did not put up a huge fight for her legislation to be thrown out and some people ONLY talked / complained amongst themselves which meant – YOU DID NOTHING.

Doing nothing is the same as AGREEING –

God does not enter into a place / space where He is not asked to come…..where He is not welcomed into. For the record, God WAS KICKED OUT!!! He is a gentleman and will NOT bo-guard His way into our lives….let alone a situation.

One question, is this not an interesting dynamic! Gotta love America!
