Heavenly Father, the 112th Congress has begun a perilous journey in governing the land. Please bless them with insight, wisdom and cautious daring. Make their term one of success and fruitfulness for the American people.
Along with the “Pomp and Circumstance” of being the President of the United States, Barack Obama has special powers and executive powers and military powers as Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Forces. We have been given three branches of government which check each other in getting the people’s business done and in defending The Constitution. [Of course the three branches are the Executive, Legislative and Judicial Branches.] The 112th Congress will prove interesting. However, it could be continued obstruction and delay or with the power divided in Congress, the watchword could be COMPROMISE… (or as one prominent congressman prefers, “reaching common ground.” 🙂 The quick pace of legislating we witnessed in the lame duck session could be sustained and the stench of dysfunction could be purified with courageous action on bills in both houses of Congress. Have you prayed for this Congress and it’s leaders? Have you contacted your elected officials and voiced your opinions. CHECK THIS SITE. Where do you stand in the battle between FoxNews and MSNBC in covering the news from day-to-day? Do you use Twitter and Facebook to keep involved in the political process? I have not read “The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire,” but, I’ll bet somewhere in there is apathy! If we leave it to others to get it done, we should not whine and whimper about how President Obama or Congress is doing “nothing” (gridlock) and the Washington lobbyists have more sway over politicians than the very people who stood in line and voted them into office. Let’s all make America the exceptional nation it once was. It is our destiny! God bless the United States of America!
HOUSE DEMOCRATS, Eric Cantor is trying to peel you off from our leadership for the vote on repealing the President’s legendary healthcare bill.
He seeks to divide and conquer. DON’T FALL FOR IT! The time spent on this bill is a waste except to create drama. Let’s show the world that democrats can pull together and vote as a block…..just like republicans. Even though you may have voted against the bill last year, please DO NOT VOTE WITH REPUBLICANS ON JANUARY 12th! Vote with your party as a show of solidarity on this bill which has no chance of passing in the Senate and would surely be vetoed by the President…if it came to that. YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE AND YOU WILL GAIN THE RESPECT OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. This vote is for image-making only, my friends. God bless America!
VOTE “NO” ON REPEAL OF “OBAMACARE!”
Reduces Deficit by
$143 Billion over 9 years
Adds $1.3 Trillion to
Deficit over 20 years
PRESIDENT OBAMA ENCOURAGES DISCHARGED SOLDIERS TO REENLIST
Imagine: 14,000 gay men and women wanted to serve in the military, they made the courageous decision to lie about their sexual orientation to be able to serve the Nation. These particular gays and lesbians were found out or outed and were subsequently discharged from service. In a few months we all hope to have the Repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” fully implemented. Then, President Obama encourages them to reenlist. I hope that there lives and psyches were not so destroyed that they cannot return to their noble service. No doubt there is anger, embarressment and thoughts of failure. But, those feelings are transitory.
That special feeling one gets when wearing the uniform is a lure too hard to resist. [I was in Army ROTC.] We will see the services grow by 14,000 men and women!
Well, most of the heros of the DADT movement are unsung. We all know Dan Choi who is in the photo below protesting “DADT.” We will see who steps forward to lead the 14,000 back to the service. Some may need support including financial. Hopefully, fairminded Americans will step up. GOD BLESS THE USA!
Title: I’m Posting every day in 2011!
I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now. I will be posting on this blog once a day / once a week for all of 2011.
I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising to make use of The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similiar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.
If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.
THE 112th CONGRESS THREATENS TO BE CONTENTIOUS
PLEASE PRAY TODAY THAT REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS AND INDEPENDENTS WILL FIND WAYS TO COMPROMISE AND REACH COMMON GROUND IN 2011
I am sad this did not make the 6 o’clock news.
