Democrat and Republicans - Stuck In The Mud, Again

I am not quite sure how you feel about the quagmire that has been created in Washington D.C. by "OUR" law makers. I emphasize OUR law makers. I am of the opinion that it is all of their faults, all of them. I go back to what I have been saying, the law makers, are all self serving brats for the most part. They prove this by their mannerisms. If the House and the Senate were really serious about solving the budget, the budget would have been completed on time without any delay and with the necessary cuts that have to be made to curb the escalating out of control spending. We have been saddled again with an extension with 8 April, 2011 as the deadline before the government shuts down. Here is an example of their selfishness. Selfishness because if they shut down the government,  the staffers and other personnel will get sent home without pay, because they are considered non-essential personnel, what a label to have attached to someone. "Non-Essential." It is like they do not exist. Now lets see who is considered as essential personnel.......the law makers consider themselves as essential, therefore they get a paycheck. That's special. What about the United States Border Patrol Agents. I have made several phone calls to Agents to get their view point. One Agent told me that they were told to prepare for a shut down, contact their creditors and advise them they might not be getting paid so they would not be able to make payments.  Another Agent told me, they might get paid, but only base pay, no overtime or other pay which goes with the job. What about all of the Capitol Police (essential-personnel) etc. If the government shuts down, so many people will be affected.  Did we elect our Senators and Representatives to behave in such a manner. I did not.

This behavior by our elected officials is reprehensible, to even consider placing employees in the position of having to place calls to creditors to advise them they may be unable to pay their mortgage payment and other payments. Maybe the Represenatives should be making those calls, instead of the employees. The employee is now being placed in a position of having their credit damaged because of the stupidity and arrogant attitude of people who have been elected on promises to run our government in a responsible manner. Neither Republican or Democrat have demonstrated any type of responsible behavior in passing a reasonable budget for the United States. As of late all we have been hearing is finger pointing and crying and blaming one or the other, acting like two year old children fighting for a toy. I am ashamed of all of them.

Let me remind you ladies and gentleman of Congress, "We the people of the United States of America elected you to do a job. You receive a salary which is more than 75% of most households. We pay our taxes, which you spend without regard for the people who earned that you spend.  You have demonstrated on more than one occasion that your morals are lower than an alley cat, you cheat on your wives, you cheat on your taxes and heaven knows what else you do behind closed doors. Like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, you look down your nose at us, the little guy, giving us little regard or respect.  Pelosi, throws our tax dollar around like monopoly money, renting office space and paying $18,000 a month. talk about waste, that is what is done with OUR MONEY. Pay it out of your own pocket. You wouldn't toss it around so liberally. We are in an economic crisis, the likes which has not been seen in this nation, all because of GREED and unchecked wasteful spending.

I am sick and tired of waking up each and every morning to the horror that faces this nation, economic woes and war.  And now without consulting Congress, Obama opens a war on another front, the Libyan front, with no idea how to get us out. However, this is not a war according to Obama,  we are told it is a humanitarian effort. It is a war, people are being killed, missiles are being launched, and a $29.7 million dollar aircraft has crashed.  What is that Mr. Obama.......WAR. We owe China over $700 billion dollars, our deficit is at $14 trillion dollars and growing at an unsustainable rate. The time has come for us to pull the plug and rid ourselves of the people in Washington, who are not fulfilling their duties as promised.

Unitl next time...God Bless You and God Bless America.

Obama Verbally Trounced by New Black Panthers

I will be the first to tell you I do not support Barack Obama's administration, not because he is black, not because he is a democrat, but because I do not agree with his policies, views or beliefs on America's direction.  However the new black panthers King Malik Shabazz unleashed a verbal attack on President Obama unlike what I have ever heard before, this tirade was filled with hate against someone who I thought would be admired thoughout the African American community. I was wrong.  Of course not all African Americans have the hate that King Samir Shabazz has. This man has some twisted views of America and how things should be. The way I interrupted his thoughts,  would be the white race would be oppressed, should the government overthrown. Here we are 2011, and racism is still alive and well.  One thing I felt about after the 2008 election was that America had come so far in race relations. Setting aside politics, America elected the first African American president. In that since I was proud so many of the past scars were healing, and America was headed in the right direction.  I was wrong; in listening to King Malik Shabazz rhetoric, and listening to his hate filled speech, I felt maybe the gap may have widen, my heart is saddened. Why have we regressed?

 Maybe I am wrong, maybe America is not one who has regressed,  maybe the only one that has not changed  is Sabazz.  The only thing I can base an opinion on is what I hear, nothing else. What I hear from Shabazz is nothing but hate against Ameicans, black and white. It is apparent that if you are black and do not believe or follow Shabazz's beliefs or views, then you are on the wrong side of history. I just do not understand his apparent hatered of Obama and America. Shabazz also wants Obama's wife and children to leave him, why in the world would he want that.  Again, I do not support Obama's politics, not at all. However to attack him, call him the names and label him with the racial epitaphs that I have heard coming out of Sabazz's mouth is tells you all you need to know about this man.  What do you expect from a man that aligns himself with a dicators like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Mummar Quaddafi will tell you where Sabazz's allegiance's lay, and it is not with America.  Shabazz is a street thug, who tries to rule by instilling fear, as they did in 2008 Philadelphis voter intimdation case, which was dismissed by Eric Holder, and comments like "we will be ruled by the black man." Well we are not ruled by anyone, however we do have a Black President of the United States. a black man who was duly elected by the People of the United States. Apparently this is not what Shabazz wants, he wants something similar to the government of Iran? Islamic law, but governed by King Malik Shabazz.  Just listen to the attached video's, that should tell you all you need to know about this guy. This is sad, a man that apparently has a following and could if he wanted he could do some good, but he uses his corrupted view point to try poison the minds of young adults instead of trying to make things better, but that is my point of view, and I am just one person....


Until next time my friends.......God Bless You and God Bless America....

Obama - Illegitmate President?

For some reason, the birth certificate controversy has heated up, again. This past week, the Trumpster,(Donald Trump) ignited a heated discussion with the ladies of the (ABC)View, I use (ladies) lightly. Trump suggested that there is something on Obama's birth certificate that he does not want anyone to see. Why is that?  Logically, why has Obama not released the document, it is going to cause a distraction, that will only grow as the 2012 election approaches. It is going to be an issue which will not go away until Obama addresses the matter and puts it to rest. I have concerns about the issue, as we all should. At one point, I forgot about it, thinking that if Billary and Hillary could not find anything, then there was nothing to be found. Either they could not find a birth certificate or could not find any evidence to dispute that Obama is an American citizen. No one will know why Obama is taking this path, only he can answer that.
I have heard countless tales of how much money this man has spent to keep his birth record a secret, I have heard he has spent hundreds of thousands to a few million. The obvious answer as to why he is doing this is because he is not an American citizen, therefore he is an illegitimate President, which would cause or should cause an investigation and subsequent arrest for perjury.
. Can you for a moment just imagine the ramifications if it is proven that Obama is not a natural born citizen. A national disgrace, and a scam of epic proportions. It would be classified as the biggest scam ever pulled off against the American people. For that reason alone, and for the sake of his two little girls, I hope it is not true, but I am in the Trump camp now. I am really interested in why he has gone to such lengths to hide this information, if Obama is legit, he should have nothing to hide and should produce the birth certificate and move on. The odds are against Obama releasing anything and it is going to have to be some else to do it.  I am sure Donald Trump has some of the best investigators in the business searching for the answer..........Good luck Donald.

Until next time, God Bless You and God Bless America

Illegal Immigration = "Free Ride in America- Come One, Come All"

 "As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of: let's look at California for a second.   California  high schools are  designated as Title 1 schools, meaning that it' students average lower socioeconomic And income levels Some of California title 1 schools are protesting. Title 1 schools are on the free breakfast and free lunch program. When I say free breakfast, It's just  not  a glass of milk and roll,  but a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make some hotels proud.  The waste of this food is earth shattering, with trays and trays of food  being dumped in the trash completely uneaten. I am guessing well over 30% to 40% of these high school students are overweight. The kicker is, most of these kids have cell phones, but no money for food.  These schools also provide day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls. Just so they can attend class without inconveniencing anyone, or having a family member baby sit. I wonder who pays for this little perk.....the people of  United States do with their hard earned tax-dollar. Please don't think for a moment that I do not support assisting the needy, I do support the needy and the elderly, the United States needy and elderly, not illegal immigrants, whose parents do not pay taxes.  Some of the illegals make use and take advantage of the full benefits that are offered. Free medical, free education, free food and day care. Is it any wonder these students feel entitled not only to be in this country but to demand rights, privileges and other entitlements which I have not listed? Their will be those who want to make an argument that illegal immigrants contribute to our society by paying taxes and working other jobs Americans will not work, yes so do pay taxes and work some jobs Americans do not work, but very very few. However it is not enough to offset the higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime, lower standards of education in our schools, and the overcrowding caused by illegal immigration along the border(s).  As a country  we need to wake up and smell the roses. The guest is good in concept, however the program will not work because the rules  won't  be enforced. Does anyone in their right mind really think they will voluntarily leave and return? It does, however, have everything to do with culture: A third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by 15 and that refuses to learn and an American culture that has become so weak and worried about " political correctness " that we don't have the will to do anything about it. The Obama administration, as those administrations of the past thrown money into these TITLE 1 programs with little or no oversight as to how much money and food is being wasted. The free this, the free that, it  translates into one thing, regardless of party affiliation, VOTES!!  This is what matters most of all to a politician, not anything else. An  example, if an illegal alien with a wife and 5 children a job for $6.00 an hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year,  (IF) he files an Income tax return, he will get  an "earned income credit" of up to $3,200.

He will then qualify for Section 8 housing and subsidized rent . He then may qualify for food stamps. His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school. He qualifies for relief from high energy bills as well. If they are or become, aged, blind or disabled , they qualify for SSI.  Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare. All of this is at our expense., the United States taxpayer.

Just for a moment, look back at where we are today. We are running a  $14 TRILLION dollar deficit, roughly $46,000 per American household is owed. China has now become our landlord.  We are in wars on three fronts, Iraq, Afghanistan and most recently, Libya. Gasoline is closing in to $4 a gallon. Obama just gave Brazil 2 billion dollars to explore drilling off the Brazilian coast, creating jobs in Brazil, not America. This topic was just discussed again this past Friday,  and is open for debate again, a new mileage TAX.  If passed and signed into law, our mileage would be tracked and taxed based on how many miles we drive.    

It is time that We The People , stand up and say ENOUGH.  I want my son and his family, my grandchildren my friends to have some sort of future, with what ever time we have left.  I do not want them to have a third world country or third world conditions to live in. 

Until next time, God Bless You and God Bless America.

A Simple Question of "WHY"

Yes this is just a simple question of "WHY"?  If you were to ask each member of the Senate and House if they want a deceit, they would answer "No". That being the case and the answer is a NO, why on earth do we have a monster deficit. I am amazed. We have been a nation of problem solvers and innovators. We have landed a man on the moon and returned him safely. We have landed a satellite on an asteroid. We captured debris from a comet and returned the samples to earth. We have elected a President, Vice President, 100 Senators and 435 Representative's, most all of which are very intelligent. They draw a very healthy salary and benefits, and when they retire, most will draw a very handsome retirement package, which includes health benefits for life. Most of us working stiffs will never see the types of benefits extended to those fellows. You have to be in the "Click" to qualify. With that said, these elected individuals for some reason can not reduce our deficit, nor know how to make necessary budget cuts to reduce the deficit, for whatever reason. One reason that comes to my mind is they are too self serving, the more and more that they "GIVE" to their district's and lobbyist the easier it is to get re-elected.  Getting the legislation funded is their priority, I say FUNDED, not paid for. The how we will pay for it comes much later on. Just stack it on the deficit tab and we will figure out how to pay for it later. Well later has arrived, to the tune of 14 trillion dollars;  and our daddy and landlord is "CHINA". So we keep China happy by allowing them to continue to import their products into America,  they will continue loaning and loaning money.....lets make a deal with CHINA; we will allow you to poison our people with your mercury laden CFL light bulbs, and make it mandatory that every light socket in America have one CFL lightbulb in each of the light sockets. We will allow CHINA to poison our children with paint that is ladened with lead, and applied to the toys which we import.  Lets just make a deal with Brazil and give them 2 billion dollars of "Private Money" to drill off the shore of Brazil instead of drilling in our homeland, lets create jobs for Brazilians instead of Americans Mr. Obama, that makes a lot of since. Again who has a major interest in the Brazilian Oil companies if not the one and only "GEORGE SOROS". I just wonder who else has a major interest. It would not surprise me in the least in these days of political corruption that Obama does not have his hand in the bucket somewhere.

Again I will elude to the fact that America is overflowing with some of the brightest and smartest minds on the planet, but we can't make a "CFL" style lightbulb in our own country. We build cars, trucks, spaceships, satellites, rocket motors, but all we get is an American made "SUPPOSITORY" right up our six by Dr. Congress. It is time to remove the President and each and everyone of the under achieving, self serving Senator's and Representative's, it is because of them that we have this massive deficit. Their reckless attitude has METASTASIZED throughout the halls of Congress, and it is time that we preform a radical "Congressional-ectomy", before "WE THE PEOPLE AND OUR GREAT COUNTRY ROLLS OVER AND DIES."  What a shame.

I pray daily for our Country and I pray for our leaders, however I am so afraid the better days of this once proud great nation is behind us, unless we get rid ourselves of this massive infection that has permeated this great Country.

Until next time.....God Bless You and God Bless America,

The CFL Light Bulb - "Turn Out The Lights Amigos"

As my late friend Dandy Don Meredith would say, "Turn Out the Lights, the party's over". Yup, no more incandescent light bulbs, they are basically outlawed by 2014. The incandescent light bulb cost is minimal, CFL cost is $3 bucks. Now lets take this a step further. say you break the incandescent bulb, get a broom, sweep it up toss it in the trash and your done. NOW break the CFL light bulb, things get a little dicey. The EPA now springs into action for the clean up. Well amigo, this little CFL critter has mercury in it. Yes mercury.  CFLs are all the rage. They are the little pig tailed spirally shaped, long-lasting bulbs everyone is being urged, into purchasing to replace Edison's incandescent bulb, which are being compared to sports utility vehicles for their impracticality and energy inefficiency. However, there is no problem disposing of incandescents when their life is over. You can throw them in the trash can and they won't hurt the garbage man.  They won't leak deadly compounds into the air or water. They don't kill people working in the landfills.
The same cannot be said about the mercury-containing CFLs. They bear disposal warnings on the packaging.  What I can tell you my friends is that if you break on, the possible clean-up of this critter could go north of $2,000 dollars, dollars which most of us do not have or would spend to clean up and a damn broken light bulb. However that is an extreme scenario, not a likely real cost, even though it did cost a lady in Maine $2000 to clean up the CFL break.  However this is our great government at work, if you don't believe me, just listen up to Rep Ted Poe, Texas in the above captioned video.

This is absolutely insane. is this what we elected our congress to do, certainly not. I am disgusted at what has happened and what is happening to our country. This is an outrage, to make things even worse, they are made in CHINA, 100% of the CFL's are made in China. Why are we as Americans allowing to this to happen, why are we allowing people who are no more interested in America than Fidel Castro run our government. From the President of the United States, the Vice President, to the 100 Senators and the 435 representatives; you mean to tell me that they can do no better than this. If so, I submit something is desperately wrong with our system. It is time We The People who number around 300 million, MAN-UP and sweep all of these worthless representatives, senators and most important the President of the United States from office in the 2012 election and return civility and most important return common sense to congress. Because if what is described above is their definition of common sense, we are knee deep in alligators.

Until the next time.......God Bless You and God Bless America

"Drill Brazil Drill!"

While President Obama has left United States oil and jobs in the depths of the abyss,  our nomad or globe trotting  president assures a South American neighbor he will help develop its offshore resources so one day we can import its oil. WHAT! With Japan devestated by a mega natural disaster and a nuclear crisis, cruise missiles launched against Libya in our third Middle East war (humanitartian venture) and the majority of U.S. senators complaining about a lack of leadership on the budget, President Obama decided it would be a good time to Two-STEP with the Brazilians. With a seven-year offshore drilling ban off of both of our coastlines, on Alaska's continental shelf and in much of the Gulf of Mexico and a drilling moratorium covering the rest, Obama tells the Brazilians, "We want to help you with the technology and support to develop these oil reserves safely. And when you're ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers" and promptly dumps 2 billion dollars in the Brazilians pockets....Why does Obama want to develop Brazilian offshore oil jobs for Brazilian workers while leaving Americans unemployed in the face of astronomical and continuing higher energy prices by an administration that despises fossil fuels as a threat to the environment and wants to increase our dependency on foreign oil, this makes no sense what so ever. As I have said before Obama is not a friend to the United States of America; in an op-ed to the USA today Obama tried to explain his Brazilian trip: "Brazil holds recently discovered oil reserves that could be far larger than ours. And as we seek to increase secure energy supplies, we look forward to developing a strategic energy partnership."

What is Obama implying?  That by developing Brazil's oil reserve, we decrease our dependency of oil from the middle east?  No, he is trying to have another source in case the we lose oil reserves in the middle east. Which should be a clue to develope additional reserves at home. We have enough oil to to feed ourselves for hundred of years if this twit would just wake up. Howevwer, I forgot that Obama is bought and paid for by special interst groups...for one the S.E.I.U. to the tune of about $60 millions dollars, probably more, in addition to the countless other unions that will ultimately define Obama's Presidency. Obama calls this a working vacation, it shows you how arrorgant and smug this man has become, ultimately the tax payer will pay for his family's vacation. No doubt.

Obama will be exposed at some point for who he really is and for what he really stands for, hopefully it will be sooner than later.

Until next time...may god Bless You and God Bless America.

Why the United States!

I have always supported United States military action when warranted. When we were attacked by terrorist on 9/11. I was all in. I was supportive of the action in Iraq in the deposing of Saddam Hussein, based on the information which was provided at the time on the WMD's. I was less supportive once WMD's were not located, but we were there and there was absolutely no turning back. Ridding the middle east of Saddam Hussein was a good thing either way you slice the pie. He was an evil butcher, much as Mummar Qaddafi is a butcher in Libya, we sit at home in our easy chair while Qaddafi  butchers his own people because they want freedom. We have 2 fronts we are fighting, Iraq and Afghanistan and we are stretched very thin.  The last I looked, there are other countries that could pull this no fly zone off. Why does it have to be the United States. Is France not capable, or the United Kingdom, they are more than able, more so than France in my opinion. With that said, I am very grateful we have France in the mix, they will know what to do. By the way, where is the Arab countries that wanted the "The No Fly Zone"? they have vanished, and now call the action as brutal and uncalled for. Obama's lack of experience in foreign affairs have been and will continue to be a detriment to this country and this operation.  He says one thing does another. First he said no U.S. warplanes would see action. what happens, United States warplane's are in the mix, with one F15 crashing in Libya on the Tuesday at a cost of ($29.7 million), both crew members were rescued and are fine, thanks to rebel fighters who assisted the crew. So again I say, Obama said none of our planes would be in the mix, they are.  Has there been a clear and present danger to the United States? I say no. The President says this is a mere humanitarian effort and not a war. Will we accept this as a valid reason to go to war, again. I feel sick to my stomach that the Libyan people have been killed and basically slaughtered by this beast; but we can not save the world.  We are hated enough around the world as it is for trying to save the world, if that makes any sense. We have so much going on in this nation to keep a President very busy. This country is broke, and there is a lack of jobs; but Obama is in Brazil giving them 3 billion of  tax dollars to drill and create jobs,  in BRAZIL, not here where we desperately are in need of jobs.  If you are going to do something for a country, why not do it for your country?  Not a foreign country, does not make any sense. As is is we are broke and Obama is just giving China's money away.
The Libyan people are at some point, are going to have to figure this out on their own, or without the United States. It is not that I personally do not want to help Libya, but we just can not afford it, plain and simple. Now that we are in Libya, how do we get out? Somebody please tell me how. How are we going to save the day for these people and get out,  who is going to pay the bill.  Who do we bill for the crashed F15?  Nobody?  We will as usual, get stuck for the bill. and more than likely be accused of villainous behavior by other Muslim country's. If you have not noticed, this is the third Muslim country we have had military action in. However you slice the pie, however you want to label this action, be it a humanitarian action, it is still WAR. Our soldiers will be just as DEAD, or just as captured and tortured. It is still a dirty business. What really is going to hurt, is when people get up and criticize and demonize the United States. We will be criticized by the same countries who we give millions of dollars in aid.  The sad part is even in war, with exception of WWII, we have to be political correct in how we execute a conflict. If a non-combatant is killed, your a war criminal, that is if you are the United States of America. If your a terrorist, well it is OK because the terrorist have been oppressed by the land of the devil.  If a United States soldier offends a Muslim prisoner, he is insensitive to their needs, if a Taliban beheads a United States citizen, soldier or Christian, this is ok, because he does so because the Koran told him it is ok. So it is basically impossible to execute any type of war, conflict or humanitarian operation without being demonized by the outside world.

In closing, do I want to be in Libya, NO, do I understand why, yes I do, however there are other nations that can execute this action. We can help with logistics, intelligence and surveillance, but nothing else. We will get strapped with the whole enchilada at some point and again be labeled as the "GREAT SATAN" 
and get saddled with the bill, while everyone else goes home.

Until next time....God Bless and God Bless America

"Sharia Law" "The Oppression of Women"


**Give me some of your feedback and thoughts, I want to hear your from you on this, pro or con, this is important issue. **

My personal view is sharia law will never be implemented in the United States. 

I just recently read an article about Sharia Law trying to be slowly implemented, in United States which is extremely disturbing to me, especially with all that is going on in today's world. 
However we must listen to the warning signs which are out there, but no one is listening.  My question is,  how as Americans would we ever allow Sharia Law to even to get a foot hold  in the first place? I do not believe it will happen, but attempts are being made.  One of the first clues that something is happening  is concessions that are currently being made in some of our colleges; for instance the installing of foot baths and colleges forced to have separate swimming times for Islamic men and women so as not to offend Muslims.
Just click on the links below, the story will you what I am talking about.   this should not be happening.

In my humble  opinion, the Obama administration  is afraid to act against these Muslim Radical Islamic extremist organizations because of political correctness and the threats of lawsuits. This is the very same administration who is not afraid of suing Arizona,  
Sharia Torture
 one of our very own states because they disagree with the new immigration law. What is up with that. Muslim groups will now demand concessions on matters by saying, “You have to do this; you have to do this or I will be offended.”  Anyone who has been  reading my post knows how I feel about that, if you do not like our Country, pack up and leave, if you want to stay, live within the rules of our society  and you will be welcomed with open arms.  We are a country of immigrants who for various reasons immigrated to the United States, and now call it their home.  Now we have a group of Muslim Islamic Radicals extremist who want to change all of what America stands for and a President who is rolling over and letting it happen. The Radical Extremist Muslim has the cross hairs of their "sharia law" targeted on the United States Constitution and they are using it against us.  As we are a society of laws,  we try to treat everyone as an equal, no one better than the next, no color, race or creed better than the next. Yes we still have issues in race relations, however it is still against the law to behead someone because he/she shamed the family. In most Nations, you file for a divorce, not stone or beat the crap out of someone.  According to an article  I read, former FBI agent John Guando briefed members of Homeland Security that groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood are working with some Radical Islamic groups to slowly implement Sharia law here in the United States. Remember now that Sharia law encompasses all areas of our life.  Sharia law is also known as Islamic law which can be extremely brutal and tortuous, as indicated in the photographs above.
Are we as Americans going to allow this perverted behavior that is called law to become law in this country? Are you, are we going to sit idly by while our law makers, college boards cave in to demands made by "visitors" to this country.  Absolutely not. Do your guests in your home  dictate to you how to run your house hold? Are you going to allow your guest to tell you how to to worship, what, when and where worship or what to eat and what to wear.  Your guest are going to eat what you provide, and sleep where you allow them to sleep.  You are not going to allow them to dictate conditions to you. If your guest does not like what is offered,  pack your gear up and get out. This is "my house"!  Well this is my country, so if you can not live with our way of life, please get out.  As an American I am going to take the same approach, we will help you, we will listen to you, but you are here as a guest, if you do not like what we offer,  get  out, go back to where you came from.  What I feel is lacking is the leadership from the good and decent Muslim community who lives here in America, who loves  America and what it stands for and for what America has done for them. America has given them an opportunity to live, worship and provide for there family in their own way.  We need to hear from them. Let their voice be heard by the other side, the Radical side, the extremist who want to destroy our country from the inside.  

I will fight for my country, it has been good to me and my family. It is my home.  It is unfortunate however that our leadership, the Obama administration is weak,  and will forever more be labeled a failure in some areas and as apologist.  He has done his best to forever change our country into a European style country.  With that type of leadership it is no wonder we are in the position we are in, once a strong powerful proud country, slowly being dismantled, piece by piece.  We have to turn the tide, and we start by not allowing a "guest" to dictate anything to the owners of this country, "We The People"! 

God Bless You and God Bless America.

Eric Holder - "F" is Now Passing"

Eric Holder, now dictates what passing is! Where was this guy when I was in college? I would have had my degree in 1.5 years instead of hanging around spending my money. I have always been under the impression that a test, or entrance exam was created to find the best qualified applicant based on passing score. I went out and studied any material I could find prior to taking the Police entrance examination in McAllen, Texas in the very early 80's. At the time I was a locomotive engineer, but I wanted a career in law enforcement. So I studied anywhere I could, even while on a railroad siding waiting for an opposing train to pass. I studied at lunch, I just cracked the books when and where I could. I took the test and passed it with a 87%.  The optimum word is "TO STUDY".  The same process was taken in the early 70's when I had to take my locomotive engineers examination. I had 6 months to study before we were sent to North Little Rock to take the Final Exam, which was broken down into 2 weeks. Still the point is "STUDY". Unless you are brain dead you will pass. I was a Police Officer for 26 years before I decided to step down. Why in the world would the public want a person, regardless of color to be "PASSED" because he could not pass the entrance exam. You are going to have complications, sooner than later. I promise you this much, the same cadet that was PASSED is more than likely going to be washed out in his field training at some point, provided the field training is rigid enough, you have to have common sense, be able to make a snap decision, some decisions might be a life or death situation, shoot or don't shoot.  Do you really want someone who is unable to function under stress? I would not want them as my partner. You need someone who is suited for being a Police Officer. If not suited for the job, the officer could become a safety hazard for the general public and other officers. If you have to make an F passing so a person can get into law enforcement, you are opening a huge can of worms. However, you have to consider the source, it is Eric Holder. You will generate a backlash of opposition from the candidate who did study and did well. Holder is creating a huge problem for the city of Dayton. If the exam was totally racially motivated solely to target blacks so they could not pass, I could see the need to redesign the exam, but it is not, with that said, there is no justification in making an "F" passing.   It appears that the general opinion from most applicants is not very favorable to this change. It just shows you the true Eric Holder,  he is incompetent and should not hold this position.

Is Holder now going to do the same thing with the entrance requirements of the FBI, and the United States Custons and the United States Border Patrol? Is Holder going to direct that instead of a college degree, that a GED is sufficient to gain entrance to the FBI Academy, or is he going to say that if you fail the entrance exam twice, you will be granted a "DO OVER". I am going to now apply for a position with the DOJ and when I am rejected I am going to ask for special treatment because of my age and my non functioning knees. I left law enforcement on my own volition because I recognized my new limitations,  I was no longer able to function at a level which I expected of myself, so I had no option but to leave before I wanted. However, Holder has now given me another option, it is called "special treatment".
As expected, it did not take long for the NAACP to come out dancing in the streets. Why is it that everything that is done has to be racially divided, the main reason is NAACP wants to make each and every issue a racial issue. I am not blind and yes I know we have racial issues, deep divides that need to be addressed,  but when you focus on each and every issue as racial, you turn it racial. Now people are expecting the NAACP to jump in at the beginning and come up with a solution. Giving people something they do not earn is not helping anyone, it hinders because now it becomes an entitlement, something that is expected.  Do we need a NAAWP do say we need to lower exams because white people can not pass an entrance exams at MIT?  Most people are proud of their accomplishments, but not so when something is just handed out. Ok, Mr. Holder, you made an F, and really do nort qualify to continue to the next hiring process, but because you made a failing score, you will be allowed to continue on with the hiring process. Where is the pride in that? There is none.

In my opinion it is a slap in the face of Condoliza Rice, the last I checked, NOBODY gave Condi anything, she earned it, what about General Colin Powell, I am certain he earned it.  All I am trying to say from an individual is Eric Holder is disrespecting each and every American, Native Indian, Black and every race we have in this great Country.  By the way, talk about disrespect, where is all of the concerns Mr. Holder when it comes to our original Americans, the Native American Indian. Talk about taking it the shorts, our Native Indian have been violated in so many ways by the government that it is not funny, and I have never heard you mention one single thing about lowering anything for our Native Americans,  Mr. Holder, aren't you tired yet of screwing the system, just leave it alone, we as a population can,  for the most part fix things, we certainly do not need your unsolicited help.  Do your homework Mr. Holder before you overreact.

Until next time.....take care and God Bless and God Bless America.....

Adrian Peterson "You Stepped In It"

Adrian Peterson, are you kidding me. The NFL is treating you like a modern day slave,  did you just fall off a turnip truck Adrian? . That statement must be the most asinine statement I have heard from the mouth of an educated man. You have just proven my point. You are set to get paid 10.27 million dollars. Let me guess, you must live in a multi-million dollar home, you may have multi expensive cars, designer clothes, designer shoes,  silk sheets on your bed, and let's not forget your silk socks. Do you have a maid service or do you clean your own house?  I am just wondering.  Now let's compare your salary to that of  Police Officer, who earns a fraction of what you earn. Do you think he/she has a contract or an agent. Oh by the way, Police Officers are being killed daily Adrian, for way less than you earn. Hell your game day check is more than what most Police Officers make in a year. And you say that the NFL is treating you like a modern day slave.  Get a grip on life young man. Go hang out with  Police Officer and his family for about 3 months, maybe you will change your mind.

I admired you when you first came out of Oklahoma, you were a credit, now you are just another spoiled ass prima-dona. That's right you are a spoiled little rich kid.  Instead of being grateful of what you have, your talents, your MONEY, you have put yourself in a deep hole my friend. I am stunned you would say something so ill advised.   And do not say it was taken out of context, you knew what you were saying Adrian. What you need to do is apologize, just man-up,  a big old "I am sorry for what I have said"   will go a long way young man. It really will.  Until then AP, take your lumps like a man.
Treated like modern day slave, I hope the whole damn NFL collapses around your head and you have to flip burgers for 5 years, maybe you would be a little more appreciative of what you have. I would trade places in a heart beat.

You should be ashamed of yourself ADRIAN PETERSON.
You really should be. You are going to catch some heat on this my friend, and it is well deserved.

On my post of March 13, I said that according to Retuers, the United States was relatively safe from any fallout. Well it seems that a lot has changed since that last post. Although the mainstream media and government officials continue to downplay potential dangers to our country, a number of experts are beginning to come out with warnings that say otherwise.  The situation in Japan seems to be getting worse by the minute. News is now coming across that a second nuclear reactor may now be in jeopardy of melting down. The Japanese government has setup a so called “danger zone” of around 26 miles and began distributing iodide pills to the public. While they continue to claim that the public is in no danger, this morning they seemed to contradict themselves by telling the public to put their clothing in plastic bags before entering their homes. This morning while I was attempting to enjoy my morning coffee, Fox News was reporting two additional explosions at one of the nuclear reactors, In addition it was being reported that a facility that is used to store the nuclear rodsw was on fire. What else can go wrong for the Japanese Government, the holder of the worlds number 3 economy in the world. The very nation that holds so much of our debt.  I am trying to find some good in all of this, however I have not found anything.  To be perfectly honest with you I my sick to my stomach, it makes me feel so bad for the people of Japan.

So should Americans worry about possible nuclear fallout reaching the west coast?  The government continues to say that the public is not in danger, but a growing number of experts are suggesting that a total reactor meltdown would defiantly affect the west coast. Well here is some late information that should interest you.  The New York Times is reporting that the Pentagon will soon announce that the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan passed through a radioactive cloud while in route to Japan. This confirms that the radioactive materials are indeed blowing west towards the United States. Officials are saying that the crew was exposed to over a month’s worth of radiation in under an hour. The report also says that American helicopters that were flying 60 miles north of the site were returning flying fully coated with particulate radiation. The helicopters had to be decontaminated and washed. So the answer in my opinion is yes, we are going to be affected, get prepared now, not later.

So until nect time,  God Bless and God Bless America

Unless you have been sleeping under a rock somewhere there has been some news. Last Friday, Japan was rocked by an 8.9 magnitude earthquake followed by a devastating tsunami, killing thousand of people. To make matters worse, three of the reactors may be melting down, and a storage faciity for the nuclear rods is on fire. Now let's talk economy, which is tanking, both sides of the aisle still can't agree on a budget and our government us facing a shut down.  On top of that,  Libyan forces are killing their own people, and where was our President? He was out shanking golf balls. In addition did anyone notice what was absent from the Obama's radio address?  Just about everything that I just mentioned above,  the topics were not even discussed.  Let's put this in perspective, if George Bush was out playing GOLF during a world crisis such as what is happening now, the left wing media would be frothing at the mouth like a mad dog demanding his resignation.!  To be fair however, I want to say that regardless who is in the White House, the stress is enormous and you MUST have some type of relief. What upsets so many people, including myself, is his timing and what is not being said. Just look at how long it took him to come out against Gaddaffi, much too long.  Where are Obamas advisors? Must be asleep at the wheel.  This is not the leadership that is expexted from the leader of the free world. I am at a loss of words, I just do not understand Obama, it appears that he is deliberately taking the wrong turn and this great Country is payiug the price not just at home, but around the world. 2012 can not get here fast enough.  

At least Obama is throwing all of what the United States can do to assist Japan.  Japan is floundering and needs all of the worlda assistance in this most most urgent situation.

Please take time from your day and everyday and pray for Japan and all of her people, she would do the same for use.

Until next time......I will see you at the crossroad..God Bless You and God Bless America..


Sunday, March 13, 2011


(I heard today, 15 March, 2011 that the map I have posted on the left was a hoax that was posted by someone. You be the judge)

11March 2011, Japan was rocked to its very foundation with an 8.9 magnitude earthquake followed 30 minutes later by a 33 foot wall of water generated by a tsunami wiping out everything in its path. Not knowing that in just a few days, Japan and its general population will be fighting for survival with the explosion of  the Fukushima nuclear power plant, and the additional troubles with the other plants. Unfortunately up to 190 people have been exposed to radiation, and 210,000 have been evacuated from the area. The United States has been sending cooling agents to assist in cooling the fueling rods to prevent a complete core melt down. However, some good news, according to Reuters- "the United States is not expected to experience "any harmful levels" of radiation from Japan's earthquake-hit nuclear power reactors, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission said on Sunday.
All the available information indicates weather conditions have taken the small releases from the Fukushima reactors out to sea away from the population," the NRC said in a statement.  Given the thousands of miles between the two countries, Hawaii, Alaska, the U.S. Territories and the U.S. West Coast are not expected to experience any harmful levels of radioactivity."

As I am sitting here, sipping on a cold glass of water, in my office, knowing that all of my family and friends are safe and sound, I can not begin to comprehend the scope of the disaster that has hit Japan and its people. I can see the pictures, watch the news reports and UNDERSTAND how terrible the situation is. However without being there no one will get a true picture of the devastation unless you are there. Talk about  feeling inadequate, there is absolutely nothing I can do, except watch and offer prays for our allies and good friends. I know and expect that our government will do all that is humanly possible to assist Japan during their time of need, as I know that the Japanese people will do all in their power to help us.

With this disaster, I wonder how long it is going to take before the "Fallout" on how safe nuclear reactors are. Apparently they are safe, excluding the Chernobyl accident in Russia and now this incident in Japan. However, you are talking about a 8.9 magnitude earth shaker. Not much is going to stand up to that. A Chernobyl style meltdown is highly unlikely according to information that is being reported. Hopefully our nuclear regulatory commission is all over this and monitoring any fallout that may head this way, all of course is dependent on developing weather patterns of course. We just need to hope and pray for the best and expect the worse.

There is just not much to add to what is happening, we have to continue to offer our prayers for the people of Japan.

Until Next time, I will see you at the crossroads......God Bless You and God Bless America, and May God Bless Japan....

Discovery STS 133 The Final Mission

 STS-133 Discovery lifts off for the final mission for Discovery, which has logged more time in space than any spacecraft in history, 365 days total time in orbit. It is amazing to what we as Americans have accomplished in just 108 years of powered flight.  We have only two more Shuttle Flights left before the shuttle program is shut down. I have been a space freak for as long as I can remember. From project Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and the Shuttle program. I watched each of the lunar landings, suffered through the tragedies of Challenger and Columbia. Also the lose of Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee, the Apollo astronauts who died in a fire preparing for the first Apollo Flight. We have lost a total of 17 Astronauts in Nasa's history. All in preparing for the next step, going back to the moon and beyond.  What is simply amazing is America's first recorded human flight December 17th 1903 was a mere 120 feet (36.6 meters).  I just hope and pray that we as a country do not lose that little explorer attitude in all of us, the "I wish I was there looking out the window and looking down on mother earth." I know I  have had that wish since I was a child. We need to keep striving and  never give up our dreams of what is out in the vastness of space.  It is our future as a race, to expand outward. With that said, I believe that instead of trying to achieve going the moon and beyond as a nation, maybe we should consider doing this together as the HUMAN RACE, do it collectively, as Americans, Russians, British, Japanese and any race that wants to join in, if that is possible.  I will use this courtroom cliche, "We have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt" that we can work together, regardless of color and nationality. We have built the ISS with the assistance of our old cold war adversaries we have joined hands with Japan and Canada and other countries to spend countless hours on station and keep the ISS manned 24/7. 365 days a year. That in itself is a show stopper. To me it proves what we can all accomplish anything as a "RACE"  if we continue to just work together and to communicate. I amazed that we have a difficult time getting along on earth but get along in space. Maybe we should send our congress to the ISS ans see if they can agree on the budget and agree that we need to agree and quit all the damn back stabbing and bickering. 

Well that's about it for today, again I just wish to congratulate NASA and the crew of Discovery for a job well done, I just wish I had been up there with you.                        

Until the next time,  I will see you at the crossroads...God Bless you and God Bless America....

Liar, Liar Pants on Fire - Sebelius Admits to Doubling Up"

It was just a few short months ago, when the Congress, the left and the right were fighting to pass obamacare. Out of the arguments Nancy Pelosi made her now infamous statement, that today has come true. Nancy Pelosi, " We will just have to pass the obamacare to see what is in it".  It has now been revealed that $105 billion dollars had been hidden with the bill. $105 BILLION dollars of tax payer money, or depending on your point of view, $105 billion dollars of China's money. There is now going to be automatic funding for the next 8 years of a health care bill that the majority of the American people did not want. A bill which was forced upon us by a group of people who are bent on socializing America.

In addition to finding 105 billion dollars in the obamahealth care bill, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius readily admitted this morning to doubling counting the Obamacare budget, she was testifying before the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee.  Sebelius was asked by Rep John Shimkus whether the $500 billion in Medicare was being used to maintain the program or to pay for the law?   Sebelius was grilled about he $500 billion on whether it was used to maintain the program or to pay for the law, and she admitted in open forum that it was used for "BOTH" .  So here we are again, in the same boat, last summer this administration was doubling count, or juggling figures and not being honest with the American people.  The Congressional Budget office also told the White House their math was off base, however Obama chose to ignore and continue to flat out lie. Hell this man lies to us when the truth sounds better. I had been willing to give this guy a chance, I did not vote for him then, and I certainly will not vote for him in 2012, and I will ask each American and ILLEGAL ALIEN to vote against him.  I just do not understand why knowing fully well that we can not sustain this spending, why Obama continues to ignore the RED INK.
I guess the obvious answer is that he really does want to destroy our Country, that is the only answer I can see. He ignores calling a terrorist a terrorist, has been quoted as saying "Lets not rush to judgement" and
"I (Obama) will seek out JUSTICE for the captured aggressors(terrorist) to have a fair TRIAL." Now these aggressors are captured enemy combatants, not a night time freaking burglar or car thief that have attacked our Country and killed our citizens and soldiers, that is an act of war. So it is what it is. "WAR". You treat them as such, no pampering them OK. Sorry, I got a little side tracked. However it runs into the same pattern of behavior for this President, his administration has been caught with its britches down around his ankles in lies about how health care was not going to be that expensive, proven wrong.  Just tell the truth, let us make the decision on what we want. I want to live in the United States, not Europe, I want a choice of who I can see, I want a choice of who my doctor will be, and I want a choice if I want to die, I do not want to be put out to pasture and die because someone in Washington says I am to damn old to be treated, that is my families choice, not freaking Barack Obama and his lying stooges.

The lies are being exposed, one by one, just like Pelosi said, we gotta read the bill first to know what is in it...thank you Nancy freaking Pelosi for your wonderful insight and brilliance. We are now seeing the real truth behind it all.

In Closing,  it is so clear what the next step has to be in 2012, I hope we have enough people to see what has happened...I hope it is not as they would like ...out of sight...out of mind.

Until next time, I will see you at the crossroads......

Government Shut Down - Whose Watching the Back Door

Coming soon to
neighborhood near you!
A government shut down, can you believe that we are on the verge once again of shutting down the government once again, the last shut down was in 1995, when both sides of the aisle could not agree on a budget so the government was shut down. What is amazing is our leadership was elected to take care of of Nation, make our Nation the strongest economically, and militarily stronger than any Nation on the planet. Since 2008, we have weakened ourselves economically and militarily. We now owe more money to China than ever before. With no way to pay off the debt in the near future, with our national debt at 14 trillion dollars. We have now mortaged Americas furture for the forseeable future. After all that has been said, all I can see on both sides of the aisle are elected Represenatives who apparently do not give a hoot about our Nation. Why do I say this. It is very simple. If our elected officials really cared about our Country, they would do all humanally possible to save this Country from economic collapse. Our elected rpresenatives would set aside any political differences and close the doors and find a way to save our nation. They are doing the complete opposite. They are arguing with each other on stupid issues,instead of seeking solutions. This is about what they can do to save our Country, not about what can be done for them personally. I say this because should there be a shut down, most federal employees will be sent home without pay, however our Congressional Represenatives will still be paid. Our Border Patrol Agents and other essential personnel have been notified via e-mail to prepare not to be paid until the budget issue has been resolved.  According to information, they will be sent home. This is asinine to say the least. Then whose gonna be watching our backdoor if the Border Patrol is sent home home? I have not verified if Border Patrol will be sent home. The last time the Government shut down, Border Patrol was paid. However, the information I have been told is this time they will not.  I want to say that our leaders are not that stupid, but they have proven me wrong on more than one occasion. As a tax paying citizen and a former public servant I am ashamed of this behavior. Putting personal gains and goals ahead of our Country. It seems common sense would prevail, however not in this case. A group of highly educated men elected by the PEOPLE to run our Country are failing miserably. Aruging on how much to cut out and where to cut, just start at the massive wasteful projects, just look, you will find it. In the mean time glutinous spending continues at an unsustainable pace.

As an American, I am afraid of what is behind door number 1,  door number 2 and door number 3. This is not a game show. It is one hell of a risk being taken by our leaders. The most embarrassing is everyone knows what is necessary to get back on the right track, it's called fiscal responsibility, CUT, CUT and Cut. It's gonna hurt but we have no choice, none at all. China has now basically got us by the short and curlies, if they call in their markers on what we owe them, what will we do at that point.?

This administration has demonstrated how inexperienced they are in foriegn policy. After the Egyptian debacle, whatever was left of our credibility flew out the window with the blowup in Libya. Just look how long it took the annointed one to come out and say anything about Mommar Qdaffi. From day to day, no one over there knows what is going to be said next, if anything.

Until next time, I will see you at the crossroads..God Bless You, and May God Bless our Country.

The "True" Warrior

The Ultimate Warrior
Mildred "Sue" McGuyer
The pervious tribute I wrote about Major Glenn C. McGuyer was just a mere glimpse into the untold stories of what he did for this country, I could go on and on and on about his military service, he was a hero, and deserves all the of the honor we can bestow to him. However, he would be just a little miffed at me if I keep tooting his horn.  He was a very low keyed and private person.  He did not like talking about himself.  Forgive Uncle Glenn, this will be the last time, I promise you sir.

69 years, for most people is a fairly decent life span, much less being married for 69 years, to the same woman. I just hope I live past the age of 69, I still have a few things left I would like to accomplish. Seeing my grand kids grow up is the biggest thing I want to see. Let me tell you about the number "69". "69" is the number of years Glenn and my Sue were married.  I was floored when I calculated the years.....69 years, this is just unheard of these days. However, it does not surprise me in the least when it comes to the family of Glenn and Sue McGuyer.  All of the stars were lined in the right  direction for Glenn and Sue. Just stop and think about this for a minute.  Married in 1942, Glenn leaves for WWII,  and is in combat in Europe multiple times. After surviving WWII,  Glenn is sent to Japan for a year or so to assist in the rebuilding of Japan.  A few years later, Korea erupts, guess what, Glenn goes to Korea and ends up in the battle of  Chipyong-Ni, a major battle, he survives this campaign and returns to Sue.

Viet-Nam breaks out, Yes, Glenn again is waist deep into alligators. One tour would be enough for most of us,  but Glenn serves one last tour and thank God he survives. One would think you are pushing your luck being in harms way as many time as Glenn was.  However Glenn believed it was his duty, that it was his calling to serve his country, we all knew that he had more than served above and beyond, but not the Major. Our Lord and Savior took care of this Blessed man for a reason.  He not only was he in dangerous situations and survived,  he raised a wonderful family, and a proud family. Glenn may not have said it much, however in my opinion this is what made Glenn tick. Deep inside he knew he had hit the jackpot. A wonderful, loyal and dedicated wife of 69 years. Sue was beside her husband during the good and the bad and the ugly, if their was ever any bad or ugly, I never knew of any. I am sure some things popped up, but they dealt with the issues and moved on.  I just wish I could have been geographically closer to my California family to had been able to share with them the good times as well as the bad, laugh with them, as well as cry with them and as in this case, mourn with them on Glenn's last day.  Glenn was the Patriarch and Sue the Matriarch, the ultimate match made in heaven as I said.  Sue was really the true Warrior,  I was blessed to have Sue as my Aunt. Sue is the oldest of three sisters, followed by La Wanda (Dew) and Reva, my mother. I just wish time had not passed by as quick as it did.  The time just whizzed by.
At Rest

Glenn and Sue were blessed with 3 Children, Pat, Mike and Kurt. Glenn loved his family and was so very proud of all of them. He knew they would all do well in life, and they have. Glenn was blessed with 2 wonder grandchildren,  and count them 6 great grandchildren. Glenn said they made him fell 20 years younger. The subject came up when I was telling Glenn about my two grandsons, he said that was one of his proudest moments. It is just wonderful to know that Glenn will live on in each of his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I am just proud to have known the The "General" as I so fondly called him. I am a better person for having known him. As for Sue, I again will say that she was the "True Warrior", she is the one that kept things together while Glenn was out defending the country. She was the one at home that held things together while Glenn was gone.  It did not matter to Sue, she would go with Glenn where ever he chose to go. From California, to Washington State to Sparks Nevada, as long as she was with Glenn she was happy. And in the end, that is all that really matters, happiness.  One thing that Glenn and Sue had over the years was happiness, they had there health for the most part, and they had each other, for "69" glorious years. WOW!  If that is not a testement to happiness, nothing is. If only we all could live the life that Glenn and Sue have lived together, the world would be such a pleasant place to live.

Thank You so much to you Aunt Sue, and thank you Uncle Glenn for all of the memories, your memory will live on forever.

Kurt, Mike and Pat with the
Matriach of the family and
the future.
