Four more years?

The presidents poll numbers are dropping. I wonder why. Do you think it is because of his spending of more than all other Presidents combined? Do you think it is because unemployment is much higher than when he came into office? Do you think it is because his party is still suggestion he spend even more? Do you think it is because he has a labor union big wig warm up his crowd with vitriolic speech, when the president has called for more civility in this country? Do you think it is because he is going to significantly reduce the number of troops in Iraq to a level that threatens the security of those that are staying back? I don't know either. I could go on with a million other questions of why his numbers are falling. The scariest part of it all, is that most U.S. citizens wouldn't have a clue as to any of the questions posed here. They wouldn't even know what those questions are in reference to. It was a long weekend. They're probably still sleeping in, waiting for the next election so they can vote for a good speaker on "hope and change." They won't know what the hell to hope for or what is going to change but it'll sound good at the time.

So who is it going to be that represents the Republican Party?

Well we have a long list of possible candidates. Who is your choice at this point? Do they all say the same thing? Which ones side with the liberal agendas? Do you even know what I'm talking about? Is anyone awake out there? Bueller, Bueller.....Maybe we should just stick with who we got right now? I think not, no I'm sure not, but I'm also not totally confident on any one in particular coming out of the Republican party either. What say you? Bueller, Bueller?

Presidency / Dictatorship / King

Let me start out by saying that Presidents in the past have used executive orders to get around Congress for various issues. However, none has used this power to the extent that this president has done. So, right before carting off to play golf and visit book stores in Martha's Vineyard he signs an executive order. The order basically gives him all authority over who to deport for illegal immigration status. Or should I say NOT to deport. You see he needs the Latino vote, so what better way to snuggle up than to take all deportation rights away from the states, judges, and law enforcement and keep it for himself? Oh and yes he did bypass congress because he knows he would never be able to get it past them. So now he'll have a special entity (aka-bigger government) to look at the cases of deportation and they can decide who can stay or who goes back. In the meantime these same illegals can compete for some of the same jobs here in the U.S. where our unemployment rate is near the ozone layer. People, as in "We the PEOPLE" do you see that you are gradually becoming irrelevant? You see congress is "YOUR VOICE" they are supposed to be in Washington to represent YOU. When  your voice isn't heard or by passed  you are irrelevant and the Dictator or King or Tyrant or...........(anything but a President) becomes not just your one man voice but your ruler. Is anyone awake out there? The snooze should only last about 5 minutes before it goes back on to Buzz Buzz Buzz!!!!

Here we go with suggested cuts to get our budget under control. Idea (by someone in Washington) - Lets look at cutting the military's retirement system.
WTH? I mean all those Marines, Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen are already patriotic enough to have served right? So aren't they willing to sacrafice a little more and let America cut into their measly pension plan? I don't see why not. Its not like they go out and face an enemy thats trying to kill them or anything. Its not like they don't have a love for this country that most Americans can't even fathom. I mean most of them probably wanted to go to war anyway and get to play real life shoot em up with bad guys right? Sure, after seeing a few buddies blown up, losing a limb, being away from loved ones under intense life and death situations on a regular basis might suck after awhile but what the hell.  They asked for it, they got it, so they shouldn't care that after 20 plus years of dealing with that kind of self inflicted sacrafice they give up some security of a pitance of a paycheck. What say you? Doesn't all this sound fair? I mean we could actually give a portion of their retirement to increase our president's pay along with congress (small "p" and "c" intended) right?  JFK did say "ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country." So why not ask for a little more sacracfice from our service members while the rest of Americans sleep through whatever the hell is going on in this country and abroad. Somebody else will take care of things won't they? I don't know, I don't care, I'm getting sleepy, so I think I'll turn a blind eye to all this and catch some zzzzzz, while some Marine stands at the ready in Afghanistan because he believes in these United States. I'm sorry Devil Dog that we here in the motherland have turned on you, but you knew the job was tough when you took it. U - You / S - Signed the / M - Motherfreakin / C - Contract. I love you my brother but I gotta look after me and mine. Damn all your blood, sweat and tears because I'm not giving up my union paycheck until this country collapses. Oh and when it does will you do me one last solid? Stay in the Corps so you can be the defender of whatever freedom I might have left. I promise we'll do everything we can to take care of you. Trust us, you work for the Government.

What is it with the American people? Most don't have a clue about what is going on in this country. I realize we are all busy with our daily lives, but does this mean we forget about what is affecting our lives? It seems to me we have a WAR going on in this country. There are three sides in this war. Those that are trying to change us into a socialist society, those that are trying to keep us as a Republic and those that don't have a clue what I'm talking about. As far as I'm concerned this is not about either political party. I'm not a Democrat or a Republican. I'm an independent, as in independent thinker! Am I the only one who thinks this country is on its way to a fall? Are there any others out there who realize that we are quickly becoming a country that is starting to mirror other socialist countries that have fell? Please tell me that the people of this country are not sleeping at the wheel of freedom.
