US Employment, Unemployment, and Societies Destructive Course

Many people today have forgotten the American dream and how to achieve it. America was all about being able to work; going from having nothing to achieving and building something from the sweat of your own brow; accepting charity from no one and full of pride about what you could and would achieve. I believe we should all work for what we get but many our elected government officials have made it easier for us to legally steal from those who do work; many people are more interested in getting free handouts then working for what they want, and of course our politicians are more then willing to oblige in exchange for their vote. This doesn't solve any problems, just pushes people down.

Our biggest problem in America with unemployment isn't lack of jobs, it isn't lack of workers, and it isn't lack of ability to learn a new job; the problem today is we have a society which has went from pride in their work for a fare days wage to I deserve a livable income no matter how menial my job. The rule for unemployment is you must actively be looking for a job; the problem is most of the officials who should be checking on the recipients derelict their duty or are just plane lazy. This combined with the unwillingness of many unemployed to look for a new job until their "benefits" run out isn't why unemployment was designed. Unemployment was set up to help you for a short time until you could find another job but has been morphed into yet another entitlement. Currently part of the politicians say "We shouldn't cut off finances to people trying to feed their family" with the other side saying "Unemployment has been extended from 18 months to two years, statistics shows people don't look for jobs until their unemployment benefits are about to run out or have ran out."

I personally know people who refuse to look for jobs because it is not the job they want, doesn't pay as much as the job they had, the job is beneath them, and most say their benefits haven't ran out yet so why look for a job. A few years back I quit my job because the company I was working for was starting to do illegalities  and I wasn't going to be a part of it (they are now out of business). I looked and quickly found a job different then what I was use to doing with about a 25% pay cut and requiring much travel. Was it the job I wanted, No, was it in the place I wanted, No, was it the pay I was getting or wanted, No, but I took it because it was a job. We need to get our people back to working and off unemployment; it was not meant to be used as an 18 month vacation. Many people may truly be having problems finding jobs but statistics show the majority is what was earlier pointed out.

Progressives say we are moving in the right direction but if you take a look at our society we have more people then ever taking handouts, refusing to work, having more kids then their ability to care of, and now instead of always being in the top 3 of world high school rankings we are 14th; the best and most powerful country in the world is now 14th. I heard a guy talking about voting and if someone didn't have a job they shouldn't be able to vote. I told him all Americans should be allowed to vote no matter if they where employed or not but as time goes on I wonder if what he said has true merit. The ones who refuse to work are the same ones who instead of doing what is best for the country keep voting from their point of greed to receive more free entitlements at the detriment of the working class and true Americans; and the politicians they elect are worse, they are just enslaving these people to poverty just to secure their votes.  

This is what is destroying America; what happened to the, " achieving and building something from the sweat of your own brow; accepting charity from no one and full of pride about what you could and would achieve?" I was raised to only accept charity when I have exhausted all other means, to have pride in having work and my work, and that I need to pay my own way, and only buy what I can afford. It use to be, "go work for a company and you would retire from that same company many years later", these same entitlement politicians are the ones who have destroyed your ability to have this stability, achieve this goal, and yet people who refuse to work or stay on unemployment until it's gone are still electing them. I wonder, what would happen if you did have to have a job to vote? What do you think about this man's idea? Who are the hardest hit? The unemployment report sited below didn't have the Spanish community listed with the Whites, Blacks, and Asians hence the reason they are not listed.

Raw unemployment numbers, no seasonal adjusted.
Asians-               5.63%
Whites-              6.03%
Blacks-            12.43%

Women of all races have an over all lower rate of unemployment by 0.4% over men; why? Maybe it has something to do with "Male Arrogance and Pride" or maybe it's because they will settle for a lower earning job to pay their bills before a man will; what ever the reason we the male population could learn from the fairer sex.

At the lowest unemployment rate, the Asians lead the pack among everyone. The Asian community is one of the smallest minorities groups in the US so the unemployment problem isn't a "White Man Dominance caused problem" as many like to lay blame. The Asian people I have worked with are very hard working, meticulous, emphasizes education, emphasize the complete (both parents) family unit, and make it on your own without anyone's help including the government attitude; we could all learn from this trait. The Asian community has the highest high school grad rate and the lowest number of children born out of wedlock, I do believe this is the reasoning behind their low unemployment rate.

At the highest unemployment rate is in the blacks community, especially black males who have over twice the unemployment rate of the national average? This community has the lease amount of emphasis on education, as shown with the highest high school drop out rate combined with the highest rate of out-of-wedlock births at 67.8%. The out of wedlock birth rate for non-Hispanic whites is 26% and Asian-Americans reported the lowest rate 11.3%. I do believe this coupled with the highest rate of none nuclear family within the black society is the reason for the over double unemployment rate and yes I know this isn't politically correct but many time the real truth isn't pretty. These numbers were all taken from the US Census Bureau, instead of people getting mad, disputing them, or calling someone a racist for showing them; why don't we see how we change the currently accepted norm which leads to this communities highest unemployment.

The biggest problem we have with unemployment is everyone want all to be equal with a level playing field and it is. When I was working as a hiring manager, everyone to me, gender, race, and sexual orientation was a number; I didn't care about their gender, race, or sexual orientation, only if they were honest, qualified for the job, would show up on time, and presented a good image. Most of the people we didn't hire was because they believed the company need to give them good paying jobs without any education, without any experience, with their attire not conducive to a professional environment, and if we didn't hire them at the pay of someone with an education and experience, we were bias. One gentleman walked in without any education, without any experience, and his attire was street, not business. He was very respectful and I told him if he wanted a chance for the job to step back out, tuck in his shirt, take off his hat, and knock on the door if he wanted a second chance because the first impression would kill him with the other members. I didn't expect him to try again but he did what I said and we interviewed him. He was honest about no experience and just wanted a chance and wanted out of , in his words "The Hood". When the interview was completed, he dropped his head down and started to leave when I asked if he had dress paints, a nice shirt, and a tie; he said yes and he said he now knew he should have worn it to the interview. I asked if he could wear it Monday and he ask if it was another interview and I said, no to start work; it was like I had just gave him the world. After being their about 6 month he was baffled when we promoted him. He was a good honest hard worker and deserved it, I kept pushing him to excel and he did. He started off at the bottom but several years later he had made it to lead position and working on becoming a manager. He was living the American dream.

The point of this story is he didn't demand anything, followed the rules, and was honest; for that he was rewarded. We hired him in for less then what his last job paid but in just over 2 years he was making 30% more then that job. He worked and when I seen him last he told me with a big grin, "I made it out of the hood" and he took his mother and siblings with him. This is how you make something of yourself, not by accepting entitlements instead of working, not by staying on unemployment instead of finding a job, and not by blaming everyone else for your problems and position but by working to change your demographic because only you can. Many of the entitlement pushing politicians really want socialism. Socialism never has worked, never will work, and has only been destructive to any country governed by it. You do not have freedom or real prosperity under socialism or its society yet this is what the liberal progressive movement will give you. If you think unemployment is bad currently, under our current direction we will hit the same rate as Greece which is 27.4% unemployment. We need to get back to work or we will be the next Greece, think about that the next time you pull the lever.

Obama Administration Failing Against Terrorism

The Obama administration has released more Guantanamo Bay terrorist back to their native countries to enable them to attack our troops again. Noor Uthman Muhammed and Ibrahim Idris, two of the latest released prisoners were both released and sent to their home land of Sudan. Muhammed pleaded guilty in February 2011 to terrorism offenses in a plea deal removing possibility of a life sentence and was sentenced to 14 years. The Sudanese government will release him with all but 34 months suspended which is time served; thanks to our current inept administration he can now kill more US soldiers. Idris is mentally ill and has spent much of his 11 years at Guantanamo in psychiatric treatment. A federal judge ordered his release after the U.S. dropped its opposition in October. This will get much worse after Harry Reid's nuclear option will allow the unfettered lifetime appointments of liberal, anti-military, anti-freedom, pro-jihadist judges into our legal system.

Many of our politicians have forgot about our individual freedoms and protecting the US against all threats, foreign and domestic. Two years ago President Obama said the US was the safest it has ever been and Al Qaeda was on their heels but now Senators from both sides admit the terrorist threat is greater today then it has ever been thanks to our leadership or I should say the lack of leadership, it has been said for years and ignored. Al Qaeda now operates in more then a dozen countries because they, nor these countries, no longer fear or respect the US. These groups are actively targeting our Homeland and US interest abroad and we have done nothing to discourage them. President Obama's administration has purposefully acted blindly or are just that inept, when it comes to Al Qaeda as was shown in the Benghazi with multiple attacks over months, refusal to strengthen defenses; ending in the last attack apex which killed four Americans including our ambassador and when drilled about it, the Secretary of State says, "What difference at this point does it make?" The answer is at this point none; because you Mrs. Clinton and President Obama dereliction of your duties and we can never bring back the dead. Our elected officials are still derelict of their duties because they have taken the same stance here in the US with terrorist as they did in Benghazi and at the same time saying our law abiding citizens like Christians, gun owners, and retired military are possible terrorist.

What most don't realize is true here in our homeland which can explode at any time; the FBI has identified 35 terrorist training camps as I pointed out in "Muslims and Jihadist Training Camps in America." What makes it more dangerous is security risks we allow due to political correctness. How can you find a radical Islamist? One way is they have no respect for women, they are possessions to them, not people. If you want to help ALL women in the US ban burqas; Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, views the burqa as a security risk and he is right to do so. Jihadist terrorists have entered jewelry stores, banks, shopping malls, airports, and railway stations to commit evil deeds and to escape capture or even hiding suicide bombs in this disguise but they also hide the beatings of their daughters and wires which if not covered, would show the evil inflicted on their women, many times leading not just to unmerciful beatings but to Honor Killings as shown in, "Muslim’s Peaceful Religion, Atrocities, and Honor Killings." In "Muslim in America; The Most Humanistic, Tolerant, and Morally Great?" it shows you the violence which can be brought if you just disagree with the main stream Muslims which are either within or hiding the US Muslim Training Camps; the finances are tracked back to most every Mosque. Our leadership has failed us and neither your nor my children or grand children should be placed into danger for political correctness. We need to remove these camps and everyone associated with them then maybe we with the truly peaceful Muslims can live in peace; but if we don't stop it outside the US we will have another holocaust and it may be in America.  

Lawmakers Cut Military Disable and Retiree's Pay While Helping Criminals

Need I even say anything about how immoral and un-American this act is by congress? For years the benefits of our fighting men and women who go where they are told, do what they are told, and in many case being wounded or dying to completing the mission they are told to complete are now being stabbed in the back once again by our president and congress. Yes, the Democrats, Republicans, and President Obama want to take from not only our veterans but also our DISABLE VTES! It was brought to the floor by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to remove the tax breaks given to illegal aliens who are not even Americans but was shot down. He has the right idea, instead of cutting for those who has sacrificed for our country and our freedom, cut those who have violated our laws, take the money from these programs and give it to our American heroes; don’t cut the what was promised to our military. Why is keeping a promise to a criminal, and if you're here illegally you are a criminal, more important then keeping a promise to our veterans and disable veterans?

Any senator voting for this needs to be removed from office! Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said in an interview on Sunday, “Democrats need to hold most their caucus of 55 senators together and pick up a handful of GOP senators in order to reach the 60-vote threshold to advance the bill”. Maybe senator Durbin’s constituents need to get on the phone and let them know this is a NO STARTER! Notice he said the “Democrat’s need to hold most their caucus”, have you also notice every time the Democrats run out of money they go after the Military; it seems the democrats in this country are more against the US Military then the insurgents. Senator Durbin and any other senator, Democrat or Republican who is with him needs recalled immediately; as CNN puts it, “Congress Double-Crosses Military Retirees” and they are right.

Most the GOP lawmakers are against it; most of the Democrats are for it, I once thought Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) were good senators, both of them along with Durbin need to be gone. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C. who I cannot stand) and Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) said they cannot support the legislation because it, “disproportionately and unfairly targets those who have put their lives on the line to defend our country”; I have to agree. Lets target the lazy that refuses to work; oh wait a minute, they might have kids, and SO DOES THE MILITARY and they worked for what they receive instead of whining for another handout. We have a cancer in our national leadership and if it isn't voted out soon, we soon won't have our rights, our freedom, or our country. America; it's up to you.

Current Politicians Don't Care about Our Citizens or Military

House Speaker John Boehner blasts conservative groups for opposing the newly unveiled budget plan, calling their complaints 'ridiculous', stating the budget proposal saves $28 billion over ten years but in reality The Budget Shown for just 2014 and 2015 for Defense Discretionary Spending goes up $31.708 billion and Non-Defense Discretionary Spending goes up $31.708 billion as well and this is only two years; does he think we are idiots? There has been a proposal to cut out the commissaries to save money but once again, they are targeting the military and many dependents work there for a little extra money; if you want to cut money in the military, don't go after the people, go after the contractors who purposely blow their budgets because they know they will get paid. The real problem which everyone knows is entitlements which uses 62% of our national budget, but no, lets go after our military again.

This deal does nothing but show how even when the Republicans have power, Boehner and several other Republicans make them look week. Boehner stooped to John McCain level and started stabbing his own people in the back as he, John McCain, and Mitch McConnell have done many time in the pass; but why? It is quiet simple, the new Republican senators are trying to ring in spending and many of the old Republican senators are just like most Democrats and want to keep spending what they don't have. Think about it, if you ran a business, could you run it like are politicians are running it? No, you would be out of business quickly, who in their right mind would elect Boehner, John McCain, or Mitch McConnell; heck, who in their right mind would elect Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, or Dianne Feinstein. I work around the government in the defense area and I see allot of waste, but I see twice as much in the entitlement area. When you spend over $600 million to build a web site which is not secure, is not running properly, and will be holding the citizen's personal information; and when the experts say it should have cost at the most $10 million, I would say that is a waste of 6000% or 60 times what it should cost. Because of the out of control spending from 1977 till current, we are in a mess. The Vietnam war had ended but spending went up from 1977 to 1981 spending went up 23% and we were in a depression. It kept at pretty much the same rate with al presidents in the middle adding to the debt; President Clintons "Balance Budget deal" was signed into law but never really happened according to the national ledger. Since President Obama has taken the reins, with the help of Harry Reid and John Boehner the national debt has went up 42%; this cannot continue or we will not have a nation; no nation can defeat us by force, we have the best military in the world; but they can destroy us by using our debt as a weapon.

Slavery, Our Allies, and Ourselves

I have been to many countries which we call our allies and seen slavery first hand at the these people we call our allies. In Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Jordan, Pakistan, UAE, Qatar; others like China, Malaysia, and the Philippines just to name a few. You will see slavery in the open and as an accepted practice, many countries openly practicing slavery are on the United Nations Human Rights Council, isn't that amazing.

Most of the people believe slavery deals with sex slave but the truth is, most of the time it is slave labor and in many cases these people are worked until they literally drop dead. My question is, why doesn't the UN pass a sanction that anyone caught openly using slave for labor or sex immediately forfeit any UN committees they are on and the ability to be on any committee for 10 years, back it up with a big fine and sees what will happen. They will not do this because the UN is as crooked as any politician you can find. Lisa Kristine, a humanitarian photographer has been documenting these atrocities for 28 years in 70 counties, her video will rip your heart out. There are at a minimum 27 million world wide, slavery is a $13 billion business, and many, especially in the US see slavery as a racial issue but the truth is slavery crosses all races and economical standing.

You might think we are shielded from slavery in the US but you would be wrong; unfortunately anytime you mention slavery in America you will have the racist cozeners using it for their own gain, not to help anyone. In early America there was slavery but what few if any history books will tell you is you had white, Spanish, oriental, and Indian slaves right next to the black slave; today you still have all groups represented and all groups are modern day slaves. Currently many make a conservative estimate that 18,000 slaves are trafficked into the US every year with as many as 500,000 slaves currently in America. We all remember Ariel Castro, the monster convicted of kidnapping and keeping three women as sex slaves in his Cleveland, Ohio but this was only one, many have forgotten Emily Nicely from Pennsylvania, Ima Matul from California, or Shandra Woworuntu from Chicago/New York City who were all slaves in the US; many are Americans but many are imported. True slavery is thriving under our noses in the US and we need to stop it.

Ignorance and Naiveness; Iran and the Nuclear Bomb

As I pointed out in the past, many Americans are fortunately naive to the ugly inhumanness of the theology the Muslim people believe and follow religiously, ignoring the beliefs of all others who don't believe as they do. President Obama announced he has blocked Iran's path to a Nuclear bomb, this is flat out lying as he did with Obamacare or about as naive as you can get, I understand Americans not knowing or understanding Muslim theology and barbarisms, most have never dealt directly with these people, but our government is another story. In Nuclear War Will Soon be at Hand I showed the repeat of history which our government should have learned from and now we know they didn't learn anything.

Iranian President, Hassan Rouhani says he is committed to curb Iran nuclear activities for six months in exchange for limited and gradual sanctions relief, this isn't a curb of Iran nuclear activities, just a way to get access to $4.2 billion of oil sales. The six-month period will give Iran the time to complete nuclear development unfettered, this same approach was used on North Korea and how did it work out; North Korea now has nuclear bombs. Under the same path we are following Iran to will soon have a bomb, there is no inspections in the deal so we shouldn't trust since we can't verify. Iran already has a stockpile of around 200 kilograms (440 pounds) of higher-enriched uranium, it only takes 50 kilograms (110 pounds) to make a nuclear bomb so as of current they have the possibility of making 4 nuclear bombs; how would you feel if you were their neighbor, especially if you were Israel. In this agreement the uranium is not removed and the heavy water reactor which sole purpose is to make weapons grade plutonium for nuclear bombs is not disassembled.

This is what happens when you have ideology who have never been in the real world running our government, luckily we do have people from both sides of the isle in congress skeptical about this deal, they live in the real world. Why hasn't this administration tried to get American pastor Saeed Abedini released from Iran, a US citizen held illegally in Iran for more than a year as part of this deal? So let me see if I get this right, Iran has defied all the sanctions put on them, they have kidnapped and imprisoned our citizens, and now our leadership wants to lessen the sanctions so that they will now follow the rules they have been ignoring? Is there anyone out there who lives in the real world believe this will work? This once again is trying to lead from a position of no power and guess what, it doesn't work, ask President Jimmy Carter.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D- New York and Sen. Bob Corker, R- Tennessee believe the deal helps Iran, not the US and they are correct. This deal was ill conceived and will, as in the President Carter Administration, only help the Iranians with no benefit for the US, once again a naive administration has put us and our allies in danger; what i worse is they don't care. Unlike North Korea Iran, once Iran has a nuclear bomb will use it, they have said this themselves. What will our reaction be when they bomb Israel? With our current administration probably nothing; our current administration will either coward is a safe place or praise Allah for what has happened. It is your choice to believe which will come to fruition but the nuclear attack on Israel at the present course is imminent.

Terrorist, Muslim, Our Government, and the Future

I am the most non-discriminating person you will ever meet but at the same time I am a realist; I refuse to turn a blind eye because something isn't "Politically Correct". Remember I told you months ago about the 35 Muslim Terrorist Training Camps in America "Muslims and Jihadist Training Camps in America" being tracked by the FBI. Sheikh Gilani from "Muslims of America" publicly stated "come see what we are about". This is what happened when a News Crew took up his offer to visit the "Muslims of America" compound in Red House VA (one of the places identified by the FBI as having a terrorist training camp). My question is "Why haven't our government shut down these hateful terrorist training camps down yet?" There are Muslims who are our Sadiqi (friends), like Shakil Afridi who helped us get Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan and is now charged with murder because of it by the Pakistan government while our government does nothing.

In Virginia, Shaker Elsaed, a controversial Muslim Imam urged Muslims in American to wage violence against non Muslim American citizens, isn't this "Hate Speech"? Where is our Homeland Security and the FBI to remove this threat and his followers from America? If this guy was a Christian or a Jew, the government would be all over him. Maybe the answer lies with what is happening in Egypt. Obama’s Muslim Advisers, Dalia Moghaed, blame Coptic Christians for Muslim attacks against them by the Muslim Brotherhood (Known Terrorist Group); could this be because of Dalia Moghaed links to the Muslim Brotherhood or Malil Obama, President Obama's half brother's who works for Islamic Dawa Organization (IDO), a subset of the Muslim Brotherhood. It does bother my that a person working for a terrorist group is within an arm reach of the white house. You can here President Obama thank ISNA, and on ISNA's web site they say they have no affiliation with the Muslim Brother hood but in the 2007, the United States Department of Justice named ISNA, along with Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the North American Islamic Trust, as an unindicted co-conspirator and one of a number of "entities who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood. We also currently have Mohamed Elibiary receiving a promotion at Homeland Security even though he has been tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Our society especially on the left had better wise up, If a "Christian" doesn't like you because you are homosexual, the worst that will happen to you is a nasty word or two; a Muslim following their faith will never like you and it is their job to kill you according to their teachings, just ask Nebraska resident Ahmed Mohammed Tuma who is Muslim and tried to kill his sister and her female fiancee with a crow bar. Though he did not kill her, he is facing hate crime charges but this type of action is becoming more and more common in America. Bob Beckel, a stanch Democrat on 24 September 2013 demanded the same thing many on the other side of the isle has said, "No more Muslim Students coming here with visa, no more Mosques being built here until you stand up and denounce what's happened in the name of your prophet. It is not what your prophet meant as soon as I know, I don't know his mother's name and I don't care. The point is, that the time has come for Muslims in this country and other people in the world to stand up and be counted, and if you can't, you're cowards." I agree with him but would add one thing, if you won't denounce this violence in the name of your prophet then you need to be removed from the US and band from ever coming back. We need to protect our people and political correctness isn't the way, it will just lead to us and our children being murdered.

If you want to find Muslims who are not set on Jihad, look for the ones who do not want to do a "protest march" on 9-11, look for the ones who don't believe in honor killing Americans, and look for the ones like Shakil Afridi who helped us bring enemy number one to justice; do not look to ISNA, CAIR, or the North American Islamic Trust, they will stab you in the back. As we watch the world we see our ships being attacked by the pirates of Islam, our people being kidnapped and murdered by Islamist militant group called Katibat Moulathamine, and the FBI warns of Muslim terrorists plans of attacking fuel storage plants inside the US boarders. We need to wake up America, and weed out the bad Muslims in our country but keep the good, they are the ones who will accept a Christian, Jew, or anyone else into their house as a friend and be invited and go likewise. If we don't find a way to come together, Muslim, Jew, Christian, Atheist, Buddhist, Hindu, and any other group I missed as Americans against this violent teaching within the Muslim religion, in the not to far future we will have a blood bath in this country and all of us as Americans will win or we no longer will have a country.  

Hypocrites, Who? Our Politicians-The Nuclear Option

What just happened again? We have just watched as Senator Harry Reid has just violated the US Constitution; between our President and Senate this has become a national pass time. Our president spoke the truth back in 2005 when he was a Senator from Illinois about the nuclear option, "The American people want less partisanship in this town but everyone in this chamber knows that if the majority chooses to end the filibuster, if the choose to change the rules and put an end to democratic debate then the fighting, the bitterness, and the fighting will only get worse" but this was when the Republicans had the majority. Now our President says the exact opposite. Back in 2005 the Democrats were filibustering every nominee then President Bush tried to appoint; now that he is president lets see his hypocrisy. After Senator Reid violates the US Constitution, President Obama said, "Today's pattern of obstruction it just isn't normal, it's not what our founders envisioned, a deliberate and determined effort to obstruct everything, no matter what the merits, just to refight the results of an election is not normal, and for the sake of future generations we can't let it become normal, so I support the steps a majority of senators today took to change the way that Washington is doing business, more specifically the way the Senate does business. What a majority of senators determined by Senate rule is that they would restore the long standing tradition of considering judicial and public service nominations on a more routine basis." Isn't President Obama supose to be a "Constitutional lawyer? If he is he either needs to go back to school or he is lying on purpose to "We the People" again.

The US Constitution states in Article 2, Section 2,  "He (the president) shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

President Obama stated, " What a majority of senators determined by Senate rule is that they would restore the long standing tradition of considering judicial and public service nominations on a more routine basis." This is a flat out lie and the sad part is most Americans will not read the US Constitution but believe every word he says. Our founding father set it up this way to prevent us from being damaged by one party tyranny, if President Obama wanted to " restore the long standing tradition", he would have taken it for the 3/5ths 60% back to the 2/3rds 66% but he just wants more power as does Harry Reid. Listen to what then Senator Obama, Senator Clinton, Senator Schumer, yes Senator Reid, Senator Feinstein, Senator Biden, Senator Dodd, and Senator Baucus, all leaders in the Democratic Party said, they were right, the Nuclear Option violate the US Constitution and was completely wrong, shortly after this the Republican Party relented realizing it was unethical and destructive to the country. Fast forward to 2013 and the same Senators who were on the right side of the argument the last time hypocritically did what they knew was a violation of the US Constitution and was unethical and destructive to the country. Harry Reid said in 2008 there would be no Nuclear Option as long as he was leader, he is another politician lying and breaking promises when it suites him.

This is one of the most destructive moves politicians have done since I have been alive, every one who voted to do this should be removed from office which is the same thing I said toward the Republican party back in 2005. Our founding fathers put these rules into place for a reason and now once again a politician who cares nothing about our country, Constitution, or its people but only their desire and greed for more power has put us all in danger again. These will be the same ones complaining when the tables are turned and they are on the receiving end. The main reason I see this as bad is because there will now be a "I'll put whoever I want in office" good or reprehensible because I have all the power from both sides. Harry Reid is absolutely the Senator who has caused the most damage to our country in my lifetime; when the Republicans get into power and overturn Roe -v- Wade because all they need is a "Simple Majority", I don't want to hear those who voted for anyone passing this say a word. This will be devastating to this country and I don't believe either side will fix this travesty.

Obamacare, Dereliction of Duty by Our Politicians

What is the duty of our elected officials? At a bare minimum it is to read every bit of legislation presented to them before voting, to do what is best for their constituents, and to be honest, not purposefully lying to them or misspeaking due to lack of reading, research or neglect. This sounds like common since but it defiantly isn't political since for their words will say one thing and their actions seam to be the exact opposite. The two problems we have as Americans are our elected officials are dereliction of their duties and their disingenuous actions. If you are a politician or anyone else you should say what you stand for and stand for what you say.

The Affordable Care Act was passed on party lines with the Democrats for it and the Republicans against it many due to they were not allowed to read it before voting. We all remember the infamous words of Navy Pelosi, "We have to pass the health care bill so that you can find out what is in it" which shows the dereliction of duties I am talking about. Everyone of the Congress members who voted on the bill without requiring it be read needs to be fired, I don't care if you replace them with another Democrat or Republican but the get paid $172,000 in their positions and should find the time to read these bills before they go out campaigning.  In the US House you had 34 Democrats with all the Republicans voting against it with 219 Democrats voting for it. In the US Senate, all Democratic and independent Senators voted for Affordable Care Act with only one Republican Sen. Jim Bunning from Kentucky giving them 60 votes. What this means is we had 219 Representatives in the US House and 60 Senators in the US Senate derelict their duties because they never read the Affordable Care Act before passing it.

Now we read "Senate Democrats Haunted By 2010 Vote That Paved The Way For Policy Cancellations Under Obamacare" and they should be; we now know that all these US Senators and Representatives who repeatedly said "You and keep your healthcare plan, doctor, and your premiums will be reduced" lied and new this was not true. We now know the employer mandate was delayed to help maintain the majority in the US Senate which would have been easily lost if the hammering employee took place before the elections. Senator John McCain (R) stabbed his own party in the back when they were trying to do the right thing and now has done a 180; its only because his job is on the line not because he wants to do what is right.

Just as soon as it goes into effect many employers will drop the common people like you and me to 29 hour work weeks to avoid the burdened of massive rise in cost we are seeing now not to mention the current estimate of between 90 and 105 million people will not get to keep their policies and doctors. Rasmussen poll reveals 55% of Americans think Obamacare is bad for the country and wants to repeal it while only 35% think it is good.  This is a train wreck, if you really want to help the people get rid of Obamacare and start to make things better by opening the state boarders for insurance, competition always brings down the price of everything and health insurance won't be any different. Get the federal government out of everything dealing with health care, making useless requirements which only run up the cost of health care does nothing for "We the People."

Nuclear War Will Soon be at Hand

The two most volatile nations in the world is Iran and North Korea; both have increased their military might by any ways possible and have demonstrated they would use this force by attacking the US; to purposefully and intentionally kill Americans. In late 1970s North Korea begins uranium mining operations and refinement. Under President Reagan, in 1985 US intelligence analysts suspect that North Korea, a signer of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) is in the early stages of building an atomic bomb. In 1988, North Korea is added to the "State Sponsors of Terrorism" by President Reagan.

In 1991, George H. Bush withdrew all US nuclear weapons from South Korea and pursued North Korea to become compliant with the NPT. In 1992 for the first time, North Korea allows the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to inspect. Instead of compiling, the inspections were repeatedly block by North Koreans from two suspected nuclear waste sites.

Once President Clinton took office in 1993, in March North Korea threatens to withdraw from the NPT. Robert Gallucci starts a new round of negotiations and after all is said and done, IAEA Director-General Blix states they can no longer provide "any meaningful assurances" North Korea is not producing nuclear weapons. In 1994, the  United States and North Korea signed the "Agreed Framework": to freeze North Korea plutonium production for fuel oil, economic cooperation, and the construction of two modern light-water nuclear power plants. IAEA Chairman Hans Blix is "not very happy" with the Agreed; North Korea has too long a time limit to comply with the inspections regime. Two years later North Korea still has not made known the amount of plutonium they possess, the IAEA is not happy. In 1998 test an ICBM shooting it over Japan claiming it is a satellite.

President George W. Bush in 2002 named Iraq, Iran, and North Korea as the "Axis of Evil" threatening world peace. The US found that North Korea had ignored the deal with Robert Gallucci and was enriching uranium and North Korea admits having nuclear weapons. On 9 Oct 2006, North Korea test its first nuclear bomb.  In 2008, North Korea destroys its cooling towers for a their main reactor and is removed from the "State Sponsors of Terrorism".

Shortly after President Obama takes office, North Korea expelled nuclear inspectors and informed the IAEA that they would resume their nuclear weapons program. They ignore the UN and on 25 May 2009 it tests its second nuclear bomb and in 2013 its third.

What does this have to do with nuclear war? Everyone in America knows the Democrats usually are view as doing better on domestic issues while disliking anything type of military actions and Republicans are usually viewed as doing better on foreign issues while supporting military action. With North Korea, the Republicans kept them mostly in check but every time a Democrat took office, they advanced their nuclear agenda with only threats and no actions from the US they achieved their goal. They now have nuclear bombs and missiles to deliver them on our allies which has made the area very unstable. The same is happening in Iran, on 4 Nov 1979 with the refusal of President Carter to support our ally the Shah of Iran who was a strong American ally, radical fundamentalist over through the Shah and now instead of an ally we have an enemy. It wasn't until 20 Jan 1981, minutes after Carter's term in office ended, the 52 U.S. captives held at the U.S. embassy in Iran were released, ending the 444-day Iran hostage crisis due to Iran's fear of President Reagan.

Now we have an Iran about to be able to create a nuclear bomb who already has the delivery mechanism and our current paper tiger government will not do what is necessary to stop them. These Iranian radical Islamist will, unlike the North Koreans, use their newly found technology which will cause a trigger response letting the genie out of the bottle. With two nuclear Islamic nations (Iran and Pakistan) wishing to annihilate our strongest ally in the area (Israel), how long do you think it will take to pull that trigger? What do you think our response will be; they fear strong foreign leaders but walk all over weak ones like we currently have in office. This same scenario has just started again in Egypt with President Obama not standing with our long term ally; the only glimmer of hope is the Egyptian military removed the radicals from office but once again a weak foreign policy president has put us and our allies in danger.

The problem in America is the politics; no matter the facts, our political parties will lie about or refuse to acknowledge the truth. Our media who once honestly covered the blunders of our politicians unbiased, now even falsify report stories to help political agendas. How long will it take for one of North Korea's or Iran's nuclear bombs to be brought through our open boarders and set off in the US? What will we do then? Please reply and let me know what you think.

Let the Lazy Receive While Cutting the Pay of the Brave

"Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel warned Tuesday that troops and their families will be asked to sacrifice on pay and benefits to preserve readiness in an era of tighter budgets." We are giving everything including cell phones to the lazy but now the ones who could give the ultimate sacrifice and die for our country you want to give up their pay and benefits even though most already fall in the poverty level so the massive benefits to the lazy can continue; are you on crack?

"Hagel listed politically-charged changes to compensation and personnel policy as one of his top six priorities in reforming the military following the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as the department gears up to meet new challenges." Has our government went so far into Kool-Aid arena that it wants to take from the brave so the lazy won't be inconvenienced and renege on its promises to our troops? Why don't we take from the $172K salary of the US Congress instead, lets take their pork spending projects, or even better yet, lets take the entitlements from the ones who are too lazy to work! How about if we take from the $7 billion is foreign aid instead of stabbing our troops in the back.

"This may be the most difficult to achieve among his six priorities, Hagel said of proposals to trim pay increases, overhaul TRICARE and review retirement benefits while adapting to cuts in personnel." So our president and the democrats in congress would rather renege on the promises to the military who have already sacrificed their time, health, sanity, and in many cases their life to buy more votes for the democratic party from the lazy ones who are only for themselves and not helping the nation. This is so un-Patriotic to even suggest it, I have no words.

"Without serious attempts to achieve significant savings in this area, which consumes roughly half of the DoD budget and is increasing every year, we risk becoming an unbalanced force," Hagel said. Why don't you sacrifice the congressional retirements, health care, and budgets; oh yes that is right; you are not for helping the nation or honoring its defenders but for your own back pocket and reelection. You would rather give to the illegal, lazy, and elected then honoring your promises to our brave; just like President Obama's most anti-American statement, "the military should pay their own bills for war injuries, they knew what they were getting into", this statement in an honorable world, should mandate the instant removal of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.

Hagel then said, "The alternative was to have a military that is well-compensated, but poorly trained and equipped, with limited readiness and capability." No the alternative is to pull the money from the lazy and drug laced to get them off their dead beat ass and make them work for a living. Our military has already paid for what they should receive and this is as un-American and un-Patriotic as I have ever seen; Calvin Coolidge quote is true and enlightening, "The nation which forgets its defenders will be itself forgotten."

The Affordable Care Act; or Is IT?

The problem with politics and agendas from any political party is trying to find out when they are telling the truth of ball face lying. President Obama said, "We will keep this promise, to the American people; if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period; if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan, period". We now know at this point 28.7% of the people have already been forced off their health care plan and most have lost their doctors due to the regulations in "The Affordable Care Act." President Obama also said, "their going to be able to go on a web site or call up a call center and sign up for affordable quality health insurance at a significantly cheaper rate then they can get right now on the individual market." Of the fifty states plus DC there was only three I didn't find data for; of the other 48, Colorado was the only state where health care plans went down. Even with Colorado figured in, the average plan for a person of age 27 would go up by 62.5% and age of 50 would go up by 23.3%; this is opposite of the significantly cheaper rate; especially in Arizona  where a 27 year old person's insurance premium will rise by 156.7%; talk about sticker shock. The rates are listed below but you need to ask yourself; is this significantly cheaper?

Were we lied to or were the ones estimating just this incompetent; I would just say this is like every other government program, inefficient, ill-regulated, and ran by incompetent people; everything seems to be far off the track. As I stated in "Update on the Truth about Obama Care" and "Is Obamacare Good or Bad and is it a Train Wreck Waiting to Happen?" I warned what was happening. First, all the experts say the site should have been $2 million max, not $600 million; second the web site wasn't set up for bid but awarded to a friend of the First Lady, this is known as a conflict of interest or was it another Solyndra; give them a massive amount of tax payer's money and they pony up contributions to your political party? First Lady Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is a top executive at the company that received the contract to build the failed Obamacare website according to the Daily Caller. According to the New York Times, the administration purposely delayed the announcement of some Obamacare rules until after the November election, so as to avoid giving the GOP political fodder, delaying the whole thing. If it wasn't ready, the responsible and professional action should have been to delay Obamacare; the responsible and professional direction for the web site should have been to get a web designer who was without conflicts of interest, but political prevaricating wins out again and we the people end up footing the bill.

This is why everything that can be should be in the private market and not ran by the government. The private market has always and will always be more efficient, on time, and correct then anything ran by the government; it's a fact of life. When you let politics and partialness get involved, we the people always loose. There are many who think the builders of the web site wanted it to fail to prevent the sticker shock people are now receiving; this just confirms they knew and lied.
