Here is the true state of the Union. Money controls because it empowers. Politicians control because they come under the guise of the “people’s” representatives – and they get fabulous money and benefits. Those with fabulous money never have to worry about protection, and those with moderately fabulous money will simply hire people to protect them. Our government has the biggest weapons of course. Those with the biggest weapons always rule.
Let’s give our weapons in and just let the government run everything, and hope the bad guys gave their weapons in too! No that’s not a good idea – that’s what happened in Hitler’s case. (If you aren’t familiar with that history, you should brush up a bit.)
If you think people are informed – think again. The media has swayed this country since the beginning of it. I spent the last three days reading and studying our Constitution, slavery, etc.…Gosh, my eyes have been opened. I read different versions – I think I finally read the truth about history.
If you think the common man is educated, find the Jimmy Kimmel show that happened around MLK day, and listen to his interviews of “the common man.” It is disgraceful. Did you know there was much dissention about creating this holiday? Reagan and MANY people didn’t want to initially, but football labor unions and others…put the pressure on the folks to sway the vote.
It is also disgraceful our government send three representatives to Ferguson for the funeral of a young criminal. You may not like cops but if in trouble who do you call – ghost busters? I think not!
People like Al Sharpton instigate Trouble with a capital T. The media and anyone looking for fame, no matter what, run to any situation to ensuethe biggest story and the most media possible. Ever hear of editing….
I didn’t start this post with “any intention”, but I am a bit fired up at all the lies told daily to invoke a separation of citizens. “A house divided falls” – have you ever heard that?
John Perry is an idiot. He sent a “hug to Paris” and had JamesTaylor sing “You’ve Got a Friend.” Throw up. Our pres. was too busy to go to Paris.
Do not be fooled. State of the Union? Huh. For all his rhetoric and fluffy speech, I heard these things: Hail all the supreme leader who won both elections. Did you listen to the speech? Really?
How about this: “I will NOT let THIS congress endanger the health of our children by turning back the clock on OUR efforts.” (Translation: I will veto any bills the republicans try to pass regarding health care- the OUR stood for Democrats. A hand across the table brother.
Already he has his pen in hand to negate anything the congress that the PEOPLE OBVIOUSLY VOTED IN this last election. He said those words with a connotation I picked up that really said he isn’t going to do anything anyone else wants to do!
“Climate change poses an immediate risk to national security.”
Say what? (A very well educated friend always said, our records only REALLY go back for a limited time. Climate has always changed and most people just theorize what’s happening, it’s all theory.”)
“We reject offensive stereotypes of Muslims, lesbians, gays, transgender, and bi-sexual.” (Just whom is obama speaking for anyway?) A bit of stereotyping, (remember 9-11, and read about today’s terrorists), goes a long way towards prevention!
Personally I like to think I do not judge ANY PERSON, however, I have certain “unalienable rights” to think freely, and to speak – and should without hesitation! Whatever is my own personal set of beliefs, I will speak my mind and not be afraid to say what I believe when asked. If that is wrong, since I am not a terrorist or killer, or a bigot, then I am just not in America any more!
Speaking of rights – AT LEAST 38, yes CITIZENS of 38 states VOTED NOT to treat same sex marriage like the marriage between a man and woman. Thereafter, slowly, 38 State court judges changed the ruling because it wasn’t fair. Why vote?
Also kind of ticks me off that the electoral vote picks the president…I don’t even know why Californians, or anyone in the far western states votes – makes NOT ONE BIT of difference in the elections. And this year, because of the lack of boundary on “donations” to candidates – pretty much once again, MONEY RULES, FAIR Play DROOLS!
Talk about the truth. I’d like to see obama, while smoking his cigarette (YES he smokes), and say: “Actually my really name is Barry, I’ve been trained in Muslim ways, and I am as much white man as I am black man. I married a real black woman…so don’t be racist or judgmental.” HHHHAHAAAAAAHAAAA. True, but that is never going to happen. I am not just picking on the swave, Harvard education “speaker” – I refer to LIES from them all!
Let’s give junior college to everyone for free! What a brilliant idea. Let’s take motivation to attain goals out of the picture altogether, and just pay billions for those who want to go. I wonder if that includes illegals, senior citizens, children who were unable to finish high school because they cared for an aging parent or grandparent…etc. Why should anyone have to work for anything, anyway! Just let the government use the willing ones work and pay taxes, keep those who have no motivation or like to drink and use drinks – just barely existing and out of the way, and make sure billions are put in the fund to protect the politicians from every stray man and woman LEFT BEHIND.
My friend told me she knows a lady and her husband who escaped to the us fourteen years ago, and neither work. The man is 50 something and he spends most of his day in the apt. bedroom being depressed, and neither of them know English yet. However, they are paid by the government and do exist.
He forgot to mention Isis and our other terrorist groups. He didn’t mention the fact he will veto anything that tries to keep funding away from accepting millions of illegal aliens. We haven’t enough jobs for citizens, 50% of America’s children are poor, and what we teach these people is that doing something illegal pays off!
Liberties? Privacy? For the middle class “folks” (he uses this when he wants to be like a peasant)- give me a flipping break. Next month there will be drones about your house letting the government know in which room you are standing.
If you say ANYTHING out of what the “text” of those in charge want you to say, LOOK OUT, and if you keep listening to the media – you will be a member of the “dumbing down of America club”.
Exhortion – being forced to pay health insure when you are young and don’t really need it. Having taxes taken out and never really have a say in anything. The folks who left England to form a new country were tired of being taxed to death.
As an addendum – did you know the Portuguese were the first to sell slaves from Africa, and Africans were the ones who rounded up and sold their countrymen? Most of Europe and many South American countries joined in selling slaves – a couple of centuries, maybe more, before America joined in. Even Lincoln would have sent Africans to South America or back to Africa, but he couldn’t figure out the logistics….honest. I guess as a white person I am sick of taking all the wrap – besides I would NEVER do something like that. That was then – this is now! Forgive and forget the past or you will waste your entire life.
If this country is so prejudice why do we have a mullato president? How could Oprah become a billionaire and an actress? Why do America’s Got Talent and American Idol (Harry Conick Jr. is soooo funny!- I am an idol head again because of the judges! ) allow all races to participate? How do all races participate in music?How come sport teams are made up of different races. And how in the heck do we all live in peace day by day by day, most days? That’s not reported, is it!
So let’s do what we can.
Rebel by living a good life following what we believe, loving each other regardless of anyone trying to convince us we don’t. Rebel by being a decent person and a good neighbor, loving our children and other children, and being kind to our pets.
Rebel by saying many prayers and remembering we are all human and just because we don’t get radical doesn’t mean we give in!
REBEL – BE HAPPY!
