Support what you believe in –

A few days ago, a craft group that had been politics free changed when the group owner wrote a message well because he could – his group his decision about the rules. And I am really okay with that – or I was until the discussion showed many disagreed with his point of view and so, again, a decision that is his to make, decided that all those writing in response were now wasting their time, it would be moderated and not put thru to tho group.

Since this started I have downloaded my email with dread – but I am not the list owner and this was his decision.

Anyone who follows me pretty much anywhere on the internet is likely to know I have pretty strong feelings. And, as someone with very very painful FIRST hand experience on the changes occurring, I can’t decide if I want to air my grievances or ask this be shut down before there is irreparable harm.

I believe my experience as a guardian, parent and grandparent means first hand experience with the horrendous feeling that nothing is more heartbreaking than to be helpless in helping our children.

It is amazing to me that in today’s world when we know every intimate detail of celebrity and political psuedo-celebs lives that people are so blinded by skin and greed.

More than anything, the best thing we can do for our children is to be patriots and to really look at our situation – The measures being taken at the direction of the chief executive are so obviously punitive and directed at those who don’t vote Democrat – it boggles the mind trying to see why.

Why is there money to close down open areas, streets and parking facilities that are not manned? But not to fund the NIH.
Well, because the executive branch can order a law enforcement officer under federal command to do so. And who is hurt.

NIH, the Military, and pretty much everything except a program that is already devastating what is still, but almost not, the best health care system in the world.

And yet, we continue to see a “Let them eat cake” and if they don’t like, then they will eat $#!+ instead.

I am bored with of the vicious and deliberate lies of an ethically, morally and legally corrupt executive branch taking advantage of its position to stamp its feet and get its way.

I am bored with people too engrossed in their own current situation to take the time to look at the fact. If you must make it by party line, The House is sending bills, which the Senate is not even being allowed to discuss – so obviously Mr Reid is not really all concerned with those 1,000 people at Nellis any more than he is those in need of services at NIH.

I am bored with people branding others racists for no reason other than disagreeing with a POLICY that will help a few today and harm the many for generations to come.

I am bored with those who think it is okay to expect others to work and they should just, because they breath, be allowed to take the fruits of the workers lobar.

I am bored with those unable to have an intelligent discourse, with a goal to solving problem, that their only response is to disagree with them is to be racist or other – Anyone who actually knows me will tell you I am one of those people who has always been inspired by Dr King and others of that generation to judge, as does the Lord my God, by action and deeds.
It is NOT the Republican in either house of congress blocking funding,

I am bored with people too blind by self interest to take an honest look at what is being offered and how it is will harm our country, ourselves and the generations to come all to satisfy the ego of an executive cabal, in league with others only interested in their personal gain beginning with Mr Reid.

I am bored with parents so lazy and self indulgent they do not teach their children the value of human life and so we have senseless violence and if you think that person should be punished for their actions you are branded racist.

I am bored with love of country being cause to be branded terrorist.

I am bored with those who were not taught that actions speak louder than words.

I am bored with those who claim to be Pro-Choice but only so long at it means you blindly choose their choice of genocide – exactly as Ms Sangor hoped.

I am bored with those who would negate the Bill of Rights, the very document that allows them to spew their hate against those who would protect ALL Life, Liberty and condemn us all to the Pursuit of Mediocrity.

I am bored with those who are too selfish to understand cause and effect – need an example, look at the effect of taking away tax deductions from corporation who used to be extremely supportive of the arts and arts programs – yes they got a tax advantage but we got private funding for musuems, libraries, research having nothing to do with their company, and more – now lost.

If you are still reading, maybe instead of whining in public forums where your opinion is pointless, you should be doing something constructive.

This is republic and your elected officials have a duty to God, Country and their constutients.

There is a MUCH bigger picture to be considered. The only thing ACA is likely to solve is the amount of people currently coming of the USA for health care they cannot get in a timely way in their own country.

Decide which is most important to you.

If health care is a priority, find out how that bill will really effect you. Me – nearly my entire social security – money that I earned from many many years of paying my “premiums” aka/Social Security Deductions, and as a self employed person I also paid TWICE that of any employee because I also paid the Employer paid portions. I know you will love how the price of medications you need to continue to live are now going to be at least trippled and in my case, generics are now going to cost 19 times as much. So maybe like Don, I will be dead in the not too distant future as a direct result of the changes occurring under the AFC.

Get the facts on how AFC will really effect you, THINK and decide if it really is going to help or harm. After all what good will it do us to reopen a study at NIH if those with the disease are deemed to expensive and in the immortal words of Ms Sibilas, some live, some die. NO respect for Life.

Get on the phone and call your congress critters and tell them you elected them to do what is best for the country.

If that means those who elected a childish, disrespectful, self-indulgent individual have to learn the lessons so many parents never taught their children about working for what they have, may suffer a bit, well it is their choice to not only be the problem but refuse to even consider a less selfish solution.

My mother once said that only boring people are bored. She went on to say, if you are bored, go find something interesting to do.

What could be more interesting than to find every possible way to save the country that allows me to write this note, and to ensure that my children, grandchildren and every other citizens of these United States can enjoy their life, liberty and pursuit of happiness without extreme interference of the type their forebears fought to protect us against.

Fully understanding it may well be the death of me, now I have had my say, I really hope each of us will decide to put aside their own immediate self-interest and choose for the long term best interest of us all.

Thank you for listening.

    Brava, Wheat. I agree with you 100%. we must do something. but, I think the combination of the petulance and punitive nature of these so called ‘cuts (did you know the fed had blocked off portions of highways that allowed you to pull over and see Mt Rushmore from a distance?) and the incredible sticker shock of the “Affordable Care Act” is going to finally show Obama for what he is.

    he has built his empire on the support of race but, more than that, he has managed to gain the support and adoration of the college aged idealists. Modern day hippies. Kids want peace and love an, in their inexperience, they believe their ideological love for everyone, their instinct to share and be fair and take care of anyone in need. when they are young, they should feel this way. it is marvelous that they believe this (if a little exasperating) because these are the attitudes that start a life of helping others.

    practicalities and real world experience come later. the problem is, the left has capitalized on that ideology and hope and used rhetoric to explain that anyone not wiling to ‘help those who need’ are simply callused. they have not learned how those things are more often abused.

    but now, the fact that the health care reform will hit them all in the wallet and, unlike the IRS, Benghazi, NSA and many, many other things, the press won’t be able to simply ‘forget about this. it isn’t something that requires the press to tell us about. it is the simple math that will tap every one on the shoulder. and the strongest supporters of Obama and the left, the kids who so hopefully supported ‘hope and change’, now have graduated and moved back into Mom and Dad’s House.

    Now, they are looking for work, they are starting to receive the payment books for the student loans and it is all iced with the new bill for their healthcare. Add to that, the obvious petty nature of the ‘budget cuts’, Cancelled white house tours writ large, well, his most ardent supporters will be turning soon. just in time for the midterm elections.

    I believe we will see a major change in the next election. Obama does not understand why he isn’t getting his way and his handlers are simply trying to frame the conversation to save the next election. We’ll see. I think we are about to see a major change in the nation. one way or another.

    I completely agree with EVERYTHING you said Wheat! There isn’t anything I can add to what you said so completely and succinctly. I can only say – Thank you! It is a shame the so called “Main Stream” News Programs are so obviously one sided and too many people watch that which is commentary and one-sided reporting and that is where their ignorance stems from. A little simple research goes a long way but My way or the highway does not govern the people under the constitution.
    Thank you again for saying what is in MANY people’s minds.

    I came here looking for some information about “string”…
    And have to leave some cookie crumbs…
    I am a school teacher, working in the public system. 7th grade, computer based learning and along with public funds for salary comes the public scrutiny, because they can.
    This is going to sound like a whine, rest assured it is not. I have not had a pay increase in 6 years, see I told you. I LOVE MY JOB…I LOVE WORKING WITH 7TH GRADERS…
    It would seem that everyone is trying their level best to dismantle and discredit public education, just like the conversations above….the infighting and the lack of judgement and losing sight of the “big picture” has caused a much jaundiced eye to be cast in the direction of education. I would like to wave a banner in front of all of them to remind them that it was the elementary school teachers that taught them to read, to write and to think creatively. I do not know a single teacher that ever taught a student to be selfish and think of self first.
    Maybe that is something they teach in the high priced lawyer schools??

    I had a young lady last year, not in my class at the time, appear at my desk. Obviously in distress. I assumed it was some type of girl/girl issue that she needed some guidance with, I asked her how I could help. She told me she was in trouble because she had not done her math homework and the teacher did not want to listen to her. I asked, and she told me that the family of 4 had been evicted from their house for non payment (my words) and they “spent the last 5 days living in the front seat of their dad’s work truck” her words. As such she was unable to complete her homework.
    MY problem is now the math teacher that chooses to be selfish and NOT look at the big picture…starting to sound familiar??
    I think we need to get back to basics….I struggle lately with the idea of our elected officials truly being concerned about the wellbeing of our nation. So, If not me? then who…It starts with us….
