Does Anyone Really Understand an Oath

Well, I have listened to many politicians over the years.  I have watched their swearing into office.  I have read the Oath of Office that each and every one of them have taken, yet I am truly befuddled!!  I want each and everyone that reads this to understand that the President, Senators and Congressmen/women do not take the same oath that the military does.  Both oaths, however, do start out the same way.  “I (insert name) swear to support and defend “The Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…”.  Now, I know what a promise is, but apparently most of our politicians do not.  I listen to many of them say what they took an oath to defend but they all seem to get it wrong.

I am going to pick on Congressman Michael Rogers (Michigan 8th Congressional District) at this time.  I listened to him on Fox News (surprise surprise) during an interview regarding the NSA and the two programs that they have “spying” on the American People.  During the interview he said ‘I took an oath to defend America’ (please read above).  Congressmen and Congresswomen, Senators, Vice Presidents and Presidents take an oath to Defend the Document that this Country was and is supposed to be founded upon.  They do not seem to understand this premise.  Not the borders, not the States, not their pet projects, not God, Jesus, Buddha, not Muhammad, Allah or satan.  The document that guarantees men and women the freedoms that our Founding Fathers had intended for this country.

This Country was founded upon Christian Values (like it or not that is the truth), the promise of the ability to pursue your dreams (no guarantee that you will attain them) and freedom from tyranny.  We appear to be losing on all fronts.  All politicians need to reread their oath of office and start complying with the same.  If not get out of the way and let those of us that know how get in the game.

Fair Share GOP vs Bovine Feces

The last I checked, and I do it quite frequently, there is not one person that is a greater recipient of Government goodies when they pay more in taxes.  It seems to me that the family of 4 that makes $200,000.00 pays more in taxes than the family of 4 that makes $50,000.00 pays in taxes.

Since the family of 4 pays a higher percentage of their income, and their income is higher, should they not get “their fair share” from the government?  Both families drive the same roads.  Both families use the same hospitals.  Both families pay the same amount of taxes on the groceries that they buy.  Why would you not expect the one that pays more into the “Great and Powerful Government” get more from the “Great and Powerful Government”?

Somehow, it never seems to work that way!  The more you work, the more you pay, the less the “Great and Powerful Government” gives you back.  Seems kinda bass ackwards if you were to ask me.

Black, white, yellow, brown or red…you can malign him all you want for…oh I don’t know, maybe cheating on his wife, being a Baptist Deacon, being a member of the Tea Party, fixing the worst division of Burger King, Bringing Godfather Pizza back from the depths of despair or the worst possible thing to call a “Strong Black Man in America” a Republican!  You know who I am talking about.  You know his name.  Mr. 999!  Mr. everybody needs skin in the game.  When Herman Cain through his hat in the ring I was for this man.  The same as when Alan Keyes ran for the same office.  Just as I believe that Dr. Carson would make a good candidate.  But, to paraphrase Alan West, the liberals hate a strong, black, colorblind, conservative Republican.

I lived in New York when Tawana Brawley started her great lie and The ‘reverend’ (on purpose) al sharpton, C. Vernon Mason and Mr. Mattox all stormed to her side.  Not because she was telling the truth but because they could make money in creating another divide between the races.  This is the practice of liberals, bar color.  This is a practice that most Conservatives do not engage in.  The difference is most people do not know or understand what Winston Churchill meant when he said “a lie will get half way around the world before the truth even has a chance to get it’s pants on”

So the next time you hear a ‘Conservative Black Man or Woman” speak, close your eyes and open your brain and listen to them.  You may find that they are the ones telling you the truth, like it or not, and they are not the uncle toms of the world.  They are not sellouts.  They are not the enemy.  They are giving you a perspective that existed when they were young, when both parents were in the house, when (forget the color barrier for one moment) we excelled as a Nation.

Let us, as a Nation, get back soon, before we parish.

 

The Integrity Joke!

“Little by little the look of the country changes because of the men we admire…You’re just going to have to make up your own mind one day  about what’s right and wrong.”  Melvyn Douglas as Homer Bannon  HUD, a movie that I wish everyone would watch, though today, most cannot stand black and white.  If you never watch the film you should at least LEARN the quote for it is poignant, significant and as true in 1963 as it is 50 years later.

It’s funny how I look upon the make up of the pundit and politicians of this country.  Although I am an extremely conservative individual I am fair when I see the B.S. that we, as a nation are shoved, the many different styles of crap.

I am going to start with Juan Williams although he is not in any shape the most or least fractious of those that follow.  My second blog talked about the racists joke and Juan has been very apt at displaying his lack of honesty on the subject.  Today, however, I watched him ‘supposedly’ listen to Bob Woodward regarding whose idea sequestration was.  Woodward stated, unequivocally, that it was the White House and Barack Obama that started the idea of sequestration.  Not two minutes later when Karl Rove states that the idea was started by Barack Obama, Juan gives his double take/deer in the headlights look…what bovine feces…a liberal/moderate says it and Juan gives his, you’ve seen it before, I guess that is true so I’ll shrug my shoulders and let it pass with a turn of my head-look.  Now when a conservative says it look out…I cannot believe that you could ever say anything against this “Black” man (he is a mulatto not black) you are white, you are conservative and how could you possibly lie like that-look.  All of this happens in the span of 120 seconds +/- time.  What a hypocrite!  What a Joke!

How many times can a man or woman call something immoral and then do exactly what they say is immoral and be called a moral individual?  Let’s take Eric Cantor, nice guy (I guess), yet I personally would not trust him with anything.  ‘To raise the debt ceiling and burden our children with such debt is immoral’. Eric Cantor, John Boehner, Kevin McCarthy ad nauseum.  Time and time again they vote to raise it.  Are they still not burdening the future children with MORE DEBT?  What is moral in that?  Are they not the ones that said it is immoral?

Okay, debt!  So Senator Obama, while running for the office of President of the United States says that President Bush (43) is unpatriotic for adding $4 trillion to the National debt in 8 years!  So does adding $6 trillion in four years mean you are committing treason?

Any and All pundits/politicians that questioned Dr. Ben Carson invoking the name of God at a PRAYER breakfast need to have their heads, hearts, morals, scrupples and souls examined!!!  Last time I checked GOD is why we PRAY.

Ann Coulter.   Ann is to Chris Christie as Chris Mathews is to Barack Obama.  Stating on Hannity that Mitt Romney is the most conservative candidate running for the GOP should have been reason for any and all of her dear and loving friends to have her committed.  Her plea for Christie to run was admirable, yet, his conservative “principles” came out with Sandy just before the election.  The man that spoke about being fiscally sound wanted the rest of the country to bail him out.  At one time I believed that Ms. Coulter was principled in her stances, however, now I find her to create controversy for the sake of money.  At 6′-0″ +/-, being fairly attractive and with legs that many would like to blister their tongue on, Ms. Coulter has some positive physical attributes…but…politically she should take her own advice…women should not vote.

Steny Hoyer.  How DUMB can anyone be that voted for this imbecile.  The White House admits (two weeks ago) that the sequestration came from them so on Friday Steny Hoyer is tried to blame Republicans (Juan Williams needs to pay more attention to those he tries to cover for).  I do not know how we became so ignorant as a nation, or when our political figures became so arrogant, but we have and they have.

Harry Reid.  My favorite Washington DC miscreant.  I have been writing to Harry telling him just how combative he is.  When I lived in Nevada I did all I could do to convince people to vote AGAINST him.  He is lazy, vile and corrupt (in my opinion).  He is the very worst of society and Nevadans owe their country a true justice  by recalling this JERK.  Anyone that does not do their job for three plus years needs to be fired.

Every reporter, journalist, pundit, politician, citizen that refers to a past president, senator, congressman/woman secretary or ambassador by the title that they ONCE HAD.  They are no longer anything!  They are citizens!  We have One (1) President.  We have one (1) Vice President.  We have 100 Senators…get the picture?

Mark Levine.  Get off Karl Rove’s back.  Sharon Angle?  I could have run a dead dog against Harry Reid and beat him.  Christine O’Donnell?  Look at the moron that is in there now.  What did that get you?  Todd Akin?  If you truly believe that he is the best that we could have put up there than the GOP is in more trouble than I expect.  We, as a nation, deserve, nay need, good, solid, quality candidates.  We need candidates that believe in this country, not an election.  No more MORONS or we all lose!

 

 

THE $1,308,000,000,000.00 JOKE!!!

 

From the first time that a “world” ranking was introduced describing where each country stood in education, the United States of America was 1st.  Then in November of 1979 something changed, President Jimmy Carter appoints Shirley Hufstedler, an attorney to boot, as the 1st Secretary of education.

Then President Ronald Reagan appointed Mr. Terrel Bell as his Secretary of Education…his job was to dismantle the Department of Education, thus leaving him out of a job.  But, like every “good” politician Mr. Bell convinced President Reagan to let him “commission” a study of America’s educational system.  Mind you, we are ranked #1 at the time of “A Nation at Risk” being released.  Mr. Bell keeps his job until 1985…lucky America!

Including the appointment of Ms. Hufstedler, we are currently on our 9th Secretary of Education.  We currently rank between 19th and 22nd in the world in education, and, we have spent $1.308 trillion, through fiscal year 2012,  to get here.  I do not know about most of you but I believe that that is a total waste of money.

We were #1 before Washington D.C. got involved and now, 33 years, 6 Presidents, 9 Secretaries of Education and $1,308,000,000,000.00 we rank 20th.  What moronically inclined ignoramus thought that this was a good investment let alone good idea.

If it were the Eagles or the Phillies and they had won 10 consecutive titles without a GM, and using different players and coaches (State Education Depts., teachers and students), and one fine day the “owners” decide to give their friend a job as GM sports fans would start to wonder…what the hell.

Then if both teams started to lose a little more often than they did without the GM and the owner just paid the GM more money…that should fix it…everyone, with any common sense, would call the owners of those teams idiots.  Yet here we are, being led by idiots, into the depths of the abyss.

Davis Guggenheim has directed many films, two films in particular, the Barack Obama commercial, where he was lauded for showing Barack in a way that everyone could see his “greatness”, the other “Waiting for Superman” where, as a liberal, he produced a documentary that showed the problem with the educational system is the 1. Unions and 2. Government…how dare he, what was he thinking?, and why did that man of “greatness” not see the folly of the Department of Education and the Teachers Unions?

We have all been sold a bill of goods.  You want to help the children of this country?  Do you want to better the educational system?  Do you want to help save the Country’s finances?  Do you Want to be #1 again?  Fire the Secretary of Education, get the Unions out of the Schools, get the bureaucrats out of the classrooms and let the teachers and parents teach the children of this country.
