A matter of equity and respect…

Since President Obama is half-white, could Delbert “Shorty” Belton have been his Grandfather?  At the very least he was a veteran who served our country well.  Doesn’t he deserve at least the same respect given to Trayvon Martin by our POTUS?

Through the Eyes of a Dreamer – The Speech President Obama Needs to Give

I don’t believe that the greatest dangers to the America we love lie in the big things.  Syria, Egypt, Iran, Russia, China – yes, there are major ramifications both militarily and fiscally if things cannot be dealt with, and soon.  Obamacare is another biggie.  So is the constant printing of more and more money to juice up confidence in the economy.  The NSA, IRS, Benghazi and Fast & Furious (“phony”) scandals are extremely important and creepy on a level that most conspiracy theorists have yet to fathom.  However, we would not have gotten to this point with the larger issues if we had been taking care of the smaller ones all along.

We need to mend from the inside out before we stop caring about our freedoms and allow the government to systematically take them away because we are apathetic.  We need to end our acceptance of responsibility for all of the faults we are constantly being told Americans possess.   We need to stop listening to the government and wake up the inner voice that made us the greatest nation on the planet for generations.  Furthermore, we need to call the POTUS on his avoidance tactics and hold him to working with us to solve the issues that have exacerbated this mess since he took office.

If Barry sincerely cared about his duties as President, he would restrain himself from making divisive remarks about cases that are best settled within the affected States.  He would surround himself with people to whom he owes nothing politically or personally – individuals with the strength of character to say “No” or to make suggestions that may not necessarily be popular with the West Wing crowd.  Maybe one of those people could honestly assess the tone of American citizens and the issues that are important to us would become important to Barry and Congress both.

So, with that being said, the speech Obama needs to give is this…

My fellow Americans, as President I have been to many states in this amazing country and spoken with people from all walks of life.  I know that I have not been as attentive to the small issues that affect our communities on a daily basis, and I could use many things as an excuse for this, but today is not the time for excuses.  Today is a time for working together toward becoming a whole nation once again.

Too many of our young people are dying from acts of violence, be they gang related or otherwise.  We must ask ourselves why these “children” are turning to outside influences such as gangs, television shows, video games and, on occasion, adults with bad intentions, instead of their families, teachers or members of the clergy.  Is it that these people are no longer available to them?  Is it that the constant use of race as a reason for violent acts on the part of people from all races gives the sense of justification to otherwise senseless acts?  Does it create hatred which spawns retaliation, which in turn creates more violence?  I believe all of these factors have contributed to the problem.  

Since most violent crimes involve illegal firearms, I am proposing today that all states, as well as Congress, review the laws concerning sentencing for those who commit violent crimes while in possession of an illegal fire arm.  I believe these laws need to be far stricter than they are and the length of the sentences should be increased with parole no longer being an option.  Sentences for those involved in the sale of these weapons, and those possessing such guns should be strengthened, as well.  Where the federal government has no jurisdiction, and as relates to non-federal trials in the individual states, I believe that the Department of Justice should not involve itself in those cases nor should we, the government, second guess the decisions made by the citizenry of any state.

When it comes to the private life of the President, my staff works diligently to allow my wife and children their private time, without the intrusion of the media, public or even the government.  It has become clear to me that every law abiding citizen deserves the same respect.  How can you have faith in me or the government employees you pay to protect us if you feel as though you are being treated as the enemy?  Common sense will tell you that America does need some sort of system in place to stop acts of terrorism before they occur, however, stricter controls should be in place to ensure that only those found to be – either through personal observation or electronic surveillance – potentially dangerous to the citizenry need be surveyed via high tech means.  Congress has already begun to re-write certain aspects of the Patriot Act that will be available for public inspection two weeks prior to a vote, giving you time to comment to your Senator or Representative about these proposed revisions.

Lastly, the condition of the education system is far from desirable.  In the beginning of my first term I ended the voucher program due to budgetary concerns.  After several years, I have come to realize this program is necessary if we want those who would otherwise not have a chance at a good education to get one.  It is especially important in those areas of the country that are suffering from bad economic times or are located a long distance from the more successful institutions available to other students.  Parents should have the right to choose the best possible education for their children.  That being said, the governors of all 50 states are being asked to create legislation to submit to their respective Congresspersons that provides for voucher programs.  I am confident that we will have a 100% success rate and vouchers will be available in all 50 states by the next calendar year.

There are many more issues that affect the personal lives of all of us.  I have touched on only a few today.  My pledge to you is that I will address more issues each month and give a reporting to the nation of the status of those solutions already being worked on.  No longer will I be the President who avoids the day-to-day issues of my fellow citizens.  I hope to be the President who jumped in with both feet and helped to heal our nation from the inside out.

Show of hands if you think this would ever happen…yeah, me either.

Martin Bashir Really Gets Me

Things have been weighing heavily upon my mind of late.  My conscience is not clear.  It is true that secrets can poison the soul and I have been keeping plenty of them.

Today I need to clean my spiritual closet lest Karma slam me three-fold into an oncoming bus.  I have a confession to make…

I am a racist.

Yes, I know you are all shocked by this revelation.  I was, too.  In fact, I denied it until Martin Bashir shone the light upon my dirty little secret.  Here are some horrid examples of my racist attitude that I need to share in order to feel cleansed…

  • I do not like Famous Amos™ cookies.  Lord help me, I prefer Pepperidge Farm™.
  • I buy Mrs. Butterworth’s™ syrup, not Aunt Jemima™, because it has a more buttery taste.  Mr. Bashir would most likely conclude that I am subconsciously denying the buttery flavor of Aunt Jemima’s™ product because I am racist.
  • I own a black cat.  BLATANTLY racist!  I know she owns me (as all cats do their humans), but fall back on the same slavery-based language of owning a being that is darker in color than I.  Unforgivable!
  • I have the audacity to adhere to the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”  I give everyone a chance to do right or fuck up – equally.
  • I believe that the New Black Panthers are no better than the Ku Klux Klan.  I despise them equally.
  • I do not trust or respect Barack Obama.  I feel he is a bad leader for this nation.  Mr. Obama’s policies have taken our nation down two thousand notches in the eyes of the world.  His stubborn refusal to remove people who have damaged our reputation and, either secretly or with flags waving and bands playing, sought to suppress the thoughts of those with opposing points of view disgusts me.  Pure racism.  How do I not end my life now?
  • Oh, and I am no fan of Bill Clinton, either.  Since he was our “first Black President”, I’m certain this adds to the repulsion you all must feel at my declining moral temperature.
  • I detest people who apply the label “Uncle Tom” to intelligent, hard-working, respectable people such as Dr. Ben Carson, Lt. Col. Allen West and Mr. Herman Cain.  They are men to be emulated, not ridiculed simply because they are African Americans and should “know better”.  They do know better – that’s why they are Conservatives. 🙂

Does anyone else see the absurdity in all of this?  Am I alone in thinking that you can dislike what a person does simply because of what they do and NOT because of the color of their skin?  Why is this always the fallback argument?

Barack Obama is not a delicate flower.  He chose to go into politics and he HAD to know that not everyone would agree with him every day.  Why can’t his supporters accept the fact that most people believe that his policies suck big hairy frog balls because they suck big hairy frog balls.  Not because he is half African American.  When he fucks up and the Liberals are mad at him (AP wiretapping, James Rosen, Verizon records seizure, Benghazi, etc.) is it then because he is half white?

Sstorm’s-a-Ragin’

Pure, unadulterated disgust…that is EXACTLY how I feel right now.  I will not edit my comments (except some cuss words – and TRUST ME there are some real doozies floating around in my head right now!).

First of all, I believe that the few idiots (the protesters) who called out racial epithets should have been unceremoniously removed from the grounds.   It made me sick to see grown people act in such a racist way in this day and age.  All they did was validate people like Janeane Garofalo.

HOWEVER…when the Bitch of the House (warned you…I’m pissed) gathered her minions around her for a photo op, she only exacerbated the situation.  Gave credence to the idiots.   Nancy, sweetheart, this is NOT  Selma.

I am not the kind of person who takes charity easily.  I have lived my life as a self-sufficient individual through some very hard times.   Many of my readers do not know EVERYTHING about me.  I never felt it was necessary.  I have survived poverty, molestation, Multiple Sclerosis, domestic violence at the hands of a coward, sub-standard medical treatment during the birth of my daughter (they left medical equipment in me)  and stood tall.  After all of that, believe it or not, THIS HEALTH CARE BILL scares me.

And don’t you DARE tell me if I read the bill I will like it.  Bullshit.  I HAVE read everything that has been posted on the internet.  I may not have a college degree…yet…but I do have an IQ of 146.  Reading comprehension was never a problem.  Legalese was just another language I taught myself.  I KNOW that when the Government runs out of money to fund the monster they have just created, I will not be a priority.  Will I live to see my daughter have her first child?   Will I be important enough to spend money on?  If I have to go on Medicaid, will I be worth an MRI, a wheelchair?  After all, I am almost 50 and disabled.

All I can say is FUCK YOU BARACK OBAMA.  I hope you sleep well tonight.

 

As an addendum to this post, I spent 7 years trying to get Social Security (my money) and finally won my case.  I now receive $710 per month, can have tangible assets no greater than a cumulative total of $2,000 or they will take it away.  I just had to advise my Neurologist that I can no longer see him because I cannot afford an MRI.  Medicaid pays $530 – an MRI costs $2,500.  Obamacare’s medical implements “fees” have kicked in and this is just the beginning, folks!   Katrina – May 27, 2013

Just Wild About Harry?

business harry

Looks like Senator Harry Reid will need to go to yoga classes.  He’s going to have to learn the “Bend over, put your head between your legs and KISS YOUR ASS GOOD-BYE!” position pretty damned quick.

Even though the Anointed One accepted Harry’s apology (purely for the sake of party unity, I’m sure), I don’t think the voters in Nevada will be so kind.  In their book Game Change Unabridged, John Heilemann and Mark Halperin reported the following:

Reid “was wowed by Obama’s oratorical gifts and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama — a ‘light-skinned’ African American ‘with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,’ as he said privately.

Isn’t it funny how Obama’s typical “rush to judgment” tendencies were on vacation when that little faux pax by Reid was made public, but he instantly came to the conclusion that Cambridge Police “acted stupidly”.  Seems to me that Harry Reid’s comments were racist, period.  No investigation necessary.  Talk about “acting stupidly”.

Even my “favorite” little Liberal, Janeane Garofalo, has been remarkably quiet.  I fully expected to see her plastered all over the news crying foul against Harry.  After all, she has an uncanny ability to sniff out racism in places it doesn’t exist.  Here’s a no brainer, sweetie.  What?  No snarky Harry Reid jokes?

Racial remarks seem to be running rampant in the Democrat’s upper echelon.  According to Heilemann and Halperin, the ever-entertaining former President Hillary’s Husband is guilty:

[A]s Hillary bungled Caroline, Bill’s handling of Ted was even worse. The day after Iowa, he phoned Kennedy and pressed for an endorsement, making the case for his wife. But Bill then went on, belittling Obama in a manner that deeply offended Kennedy. Recounting the conversation later to a friend, Teddy fumed that Clinton had said, A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.

Hmmm, Billy.  Would he have been doing that from above or below the desk? 😉

Since Teddy is dead (oh, and by the way, so is Michael Jackson…in case you hadn’t heard…yup…still dead…), there is really no way to confirm whether or not these comments were actually made.  I tend to believe it, though, since they were spot-on about Harry.

I know my Liberal friends (and family) will be quick to point out that this book also contains stories about Cindy McCain,  Sarah Palin and others in the Republican party.  I can’t wait to read those myself.  However, my focus is on the two-faced attitude in Washington today.  The Dems have ripped Michael Steele for being an “Uncle Tom”, called Tea Party Protestors “redneck racists”, and taken every opportunity to attack any anti-Anointed One comment as racially motivated.  You see, we can’t just disagree with Obama because his policies are ridiculous.  There has to be some sort of ulterior motive.  We can’t possibly oppose his ideology and want an intellectual debate about the issues.  We must have a racial agenda (and white sheets hanging in our closets, if you listen to Janeane).

Two-faced party-line politics such as this do qualify as one of the Anointed One’s “teachable moments”.  I have learned that, more than ever before, we need to vote them all (Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike) out of office and start with a clean slate.
