HILARY CLINTON FIRED UP ABOUT RIGHTS OF A PATRIOT


In 2003, Hillary Clinton screeched “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.”

ARE THE TEA PARTY HANDCUFFS OFF BOEHNER?


TALKING HEADS ON CABLE ARE SAYING THAT THE TEA PARTY HAS LOST A LOT OF IT’S STEAM. PERHAPS THE PRESSURE IS OFF SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER AND HE IS REGAINING THE PROPER POWER OF HIS OFFICE.  BOEHNER IS CALLING FOR THE SENATE TO ACT ON THE 15 SO-CALLED “JOBS BILLS” HE SENT OVER AND REACH HIS FAMOUS “COMMON GROUND” WHICH HE HAS YET TO FIND WITH DEMOCRATS BECAUSE IT’S BEEN THE TEA PARTY’S WAY OR THE HIGHWAY IN THE HOUSE.

HOPEFULLY SENATOR HARRY REID (D-NA), MAJORITY LEADER OF THE SENATE, WILL FIND THE DOOR TO COMPROMISE WITH THE HOUSE OPEN AND READY TO DO BUSINESS.  GOD BLESS THE CONGRESS WITH GOOD WILL!

DO YOU HAVE ANY SKIN IN THE GAME? PRES. OBAMA SAYS. “WE CAN’T WAIT!”


ONLY A YEAR TO GO AND WE RE-ELECT BARACK OBAMA IN 2012 FOR A SECOND TERM AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. AT THE MOMENT THE GOP IS CONFUSED AND DISILLUSIONED. THE STATUS QUO WILL NOT REMAIN. “WE CAN’T WAIT” TO CREATE JOBS AND TURN THIS ECONOMY AROUND. “WE CAN’T WAIT” TO RE-ELECT BARACK OBAMA!

The Genius that Founded America. Wherefore Art Thou?


Some of our Great Leaders in the Past

In the 1700s American colonists became weary of the government being provided by George III, King of England.  They came together after occupying ships in the Boston Harbor and throwing tea overboard and they founded what was to become The United States of America.  We call these men our “Founding Fathers,”  (Lincoln came later.) They must have been great men and were selected and guided by Providence. If they could see what passes for government in Washington, DC today, they would surely shed tears. For decades we have had gridlock which has stymied economic growth and prosperity for all the people.  Yes, the top 1% of the population have done well and have concentrated wealth into their hands.

McConnell, Cantor and Boehner, Republican Leaders in Congress Who Oppose Obama

Republicans in The Congress refuse to compromise with Democrats and do the people’s business.  This obstinancy has led to the downgrading of our credit rating by Standard and Poors.  We fear another downgrade soon. Why?  Because Republicans have not learned from very recent history and they are making us re-live the sins of the past.  We cannot go on with our two political parties refusing to govern. Democrats are trying to follow the will of the people while Republicans work to undermine the Presidency and achieve their stated goal of denying Barack Obama a second term.  They expect the American people to sit back and watch the grass grow in DC for the next 12 months. How do you feel about this?  Does this make you angry?  What are you going to do about it?  Unless you become politically active (to whatever degree), our primo nation will continue to decline. Will you let America become a third-rate country?  The future is in your hands. We do not seem to have men like our Founding Fathers willing to govern the nation.

Congress is Congress and will not change, will not enact the reforms needed for financial and political health and will not abandon partisan agenda and make the welfare of America their first priority. Occupy Wall Street has started the protests that are needed to start a peaceful revolution.  We need a government that is that is 21st Century ready and pregnant with ideas for growth and have a vision of what America should be on the global stage.  Come on. Take the first step: Go to a local protest!  Drop into the district office of your US senator and representative!  Email them!  Call them on the telephone! If we become a force one, we can take our country back from the DC establishment and rebuild it like our forefathers did!  God bless those with courage to give a damn!

OBAMA SAYS, “WE CAN’T WAIT!” WILL TAKE EXECUTIVE ACTION W/O GOP 1


2012
GoodOleWoody–Now that each and every Senate Republican has vowed to block measures that would create jobs, President Obamais not going to wait for them to rebuild the economy and bring financial security back to the middle class.Today, he announced new rules on federal mortgages to prevent more families from losing their homes to foreclosure. And that’s just the beginning — the President said he would continue to make the changes he can by executive action, while continuing to urge Congressto act on legislation to strengthen the economy and create jobs.If Congress doesn’t act, he will — because millions of Americans can’t just wait for Congress to do their jobs. That’s why thousands of you have been calling and tweeting your representatives over the past month, joining the President in sending a message to lawmakers in Washingtonthat they need to act now.We’re not just going to continue to wait — and we’ll be keeping up the pressure by making sure they’re hearing from folks across the country every day about why they need to act.Will you share your story — and join President Obama in telling Congress that we can’t and won’t wait?Republicans in Congress have repeatedly filibustered the President’s ideas to create jobs now — ideas that until recently were supported by Republicans.

The President’s action today also stands in stark contrast to the positions of the Republicans running for president. Mitt Romney even told a newspaper last week that we actually shouldn’t act; we should let the housing crisis “run its course” and “hit the bottom” so that “investors” can come in and buy up these homes at cheap prices. He’s saying to homeowners that they are on their own, forcing thousands of families to explain to their kids why they have to give up their homes.

Doing nothing while families struggle: that’s the opposite of what this president and this campaign stand for. President Obama isn’t going to let Congress’ inaction stop him from doing what he can right now.

So here’s what the President’s announcement means:

— More families whose homes are under water will get help and save money on their monthly mortgage payment through the Home Affordable Refinance Programs.

— If the value of your mortgage is $100,000 and your house is valued at $75,000, you previously weren’t able to refinance to save your home — forcing many families to pay higher interest rates. As a result of today’s announcement, many more responsible homeowners will be able to lower their rates and pay their debts.

— And this is just one of the incremental changes to come. Next, the President will announce new steps to help young people manage their federal student loan debt while they look for a job and get on their feet. He’ll also take action to help small businesses and entrepreneurs, spur the engines of job growth, create new jobs, and assist veterans in finding them.

These measures alone are not a comprehensive solution to the economic challenges we face. That needs to come out of Congress — and if they’re going to finally put party aside, they’re going to need to keep hearing from us. President Obama is stepping up the pressure, and he’s counting on us to keep going, too.

Get the President’s back and keep the heat on Congress — tell your story of why we can’t wait any longer:

HERMAN CAIN PROMOTES SMOKING…WHICH IS FATAL!


“This image provided by Britain’s Department of Health showing a healthy lung, left and a diseased lung, right, is one of the graphic pictures to be place on packs of cigarettes to discourage smokers. Words failed to stamp out smoking, so Britain will require graphic pictures of diseased organs on cigarette packs next year, the government announced Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2007…”

DO YOU LIKE HAVING SMOKE BLOWN IN YOUR FACE?

Kadhafi Is Dead. The End. Now a Beginning for a New Libya! 1


I just don’t understand it.  The US, the UN et als want to know how Kadhafi died.  Everyone knows he met a violent end.  What difference does it make?  He was a monster dictator who paid the price for being a despot.  Is this just per forma? Well, picture is worth a thousand words. WARNING, here is the graphic end of Col. Muammar Kadhafi:

Whatever form the new government in Libya takes, I hope they will always remember that their zeal for democracy led to the ouster of Col. Kadhafi and encouraged the world to help them.  I hope they will show us more gratitude than did Iraq and Afghanistan.  After the war Iraq did not favor us with oil contracts and President Karzai in Afghanistan has divided loyalties yet calls itself our partner. Karzai said that if war broke out between the US and Pakistan, he would side with Pakistan.  He continues to insult us and the President keeps our troops there even though the polls tell him that the American people want their boys and girls home! I can’t wait for all of our troops in these two countries are home again.  We cannot continue to borrow money from China to pay for these unpopular wars started by Former President George Bush (R-TX).

Lindsey Graham and John McCain Designated as “Villains who protect the top 1%” by Ed Schultz, Host of “The Ed Show” on MSNBC

I say to Sen. John McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham that we cannot control countries no matter how much we fought, died and paid for their independence.  After the war we made them sovereign countries. We would have to occupy Iraq to force them to NOT do business with Iran.  We still have significant forces in the region that would protect Iraq…if they request it. Republicans gave us these wars (namely George W. Bush) and it is up to a Democratic President top mop up and conclude them. God bless President Barack Obama.

WHY STAY IN IRAQ AFTER SHEDDING 6,631.5 GALLONS OF AMERICAN BLOOD?


Hypocrisy and Out Right Lies… 3


We cannot forget the mid-term election in 2010 which brought the various Tea Parties to power.  They won elections which put legislators in The Senate and The House.  There are so many in The House that they have what is called a “Freshman Class.”  This Class started the 112th Congress along with new Republican leaders in The House: Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) as Speaker of The House and Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) as Majority Leader of the House.  Speaker Boehner started his tenure saying that The House would make jobs a priority for Republicans…and Blog has kept wondering where are the jobs Boehner should have created by now.  The jobs issue was eclipsed in our consciousness by this clip from Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) of The Senate who serves to his dismay as Minority Leader:

I have marveled in this blog how closely Republicans having been working to achieve this goal announced by Leader McConnell.  They started before the New Year.  At Christmas of 2010 The President was pushed into a corner by Republicans (especially the Tea Party Class in The House).  Working together three Republicans threatened the President and the entire nation with a shutdown of government if the President continued to pursue raising taxes on the top 1% of the population, a/k/a. the rich people and most profitable corporations.  Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and Eric Cantor refused efforts to reach a compromise.  Speaker Boehner would not even utter that word. At the 11th hour  The President was offered an extension of unemployment benefits for thousands of workers in exchange for an unearned tax windfall for the top 1%.  Santa was able to come to more houses in 2010 because of this.  I can remember no Congress putting a President in this uncomfortable position.

Months later, these same Republican leaders refused to reach a compromise on a continuing resolution to keep the government open.  They sought to make President Obama seem weak and ineffectual.  This was highlighted by Standard and Poors lowered our “AAA” Credit Rating which white Presidents had enjoyed for 70 years. These same Republicans are frequently seen on TV discussing their assessment of how the President is doing his job…or not.  In my mind they seem to want to be co-President with Obama.  They constantly give the impression that they could run the Whitehouse better than Barack Obama.  [If only he would do things their way.]

President Obama announced the American Jobs Act which will create thousands of jobs, if not more.  He had the gall to ask The Congress to pass his entire package.  Eric Cantor went on television and declared the President’s package “dead on arrival.” (DOA)  Yet, as early as Thursday morning, Rep. Kevin McCarty, (R-CA) who said he’d only been in The Congress 3 years, feigned naïveté and said that he has witnessed Republican compromising with the President and getting along with him. McCarthy was called out by Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, hosts of “MorningJoe” (MSNBC). Contributor Mike Barnicle and guest, Jonathan Capehart joined in recalling vivid memories that contradicted McCarthy’s account.

The American people know the truth of this sad relationship.   Why just the other day, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) spoke in the Senate, not to introduce a jobs bill of his own but to criticize the President’s going to people to get help with his jobs plan and, worse, to slam him with using a “Canadian bus” for the tour.  [Only the bus frame is Canadian.] Silliness, but it is more piling on of abuse suffered by our President which started with Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) calling the President a liar during a State of the Union Address. No white President has suffered this indignity.

The emergence of Occupy Wall Street demonstrates the dissatisfaction of the American people (the 99%) with our government, our financial system and our political morass. I hope the American people see the real motives and scheming going on with Republicans from coast to coast.  As many of us that can, join the growing protests. Call, email or visit your legislators’ offices and express yourself.  Tell them you want your country back!
