Question for Today

Can anyone tell me precisely who their government representatives work for? 

Watching the Judge Kavanaugh confirmation process is like watching a terrible kid’s movie with adult actors. There is no script, but there is a concrete agenda within the minds of so many of those we elected who claim to “speak for the people of America.” The rhetoric and propaganda are out of control, and nothing is being accomplished for “the people of America.” Representatives we elected, and by the way, we also pay them through our taxes appear to be working to attain only two goals: Power and Money. The only person in our government I see attacking and accomplishing goals for “the people of America” is our President. 

Lately, I have been wondering how it is we came 360 degrees from a revolution to throw off the shackles of royalty only to reinstate it in the form of representatives we elected to work for “the people of America.” 

With all due respect, I contend that anyone who votes strictly party line is a fucking idiot and shouldn’t be voting. We need to open our minds, and our hearts to those who will serve “the people of America” and not their own personal or political party. 

Remember, President Trump promised to drain the swamp. He did not say he was going to drain the swamp of Democrats, Republicans, Independents, Liberals or any other affiliation; he said “swamp.” 

It is time for loyal Americans of all political persuasions to band together and stop the corruption in our government. Stand up and declare “YOU WORK FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!” 

Question of the Evening

I’m adding to my post of this morning.

I’m going to add to my post about this sham of an allegation against Judge Kavanaugh by adding this comment. The plaintiff in this is a Professor of Clinical Psychology, now what does that mean? Glad you asked, it means she teaches future clinical (work with patients, not theories) psychologists teaching them what to look for when helping people with emotional issues. She explains what words to, or not to use, how to control their own emotions and body language during sessions and, most importantly how to tell when a patient is not telling the truth or omitting facts. In other words, she is a pro at delving into the minds of people and helping them to address their issues and mold their minds to improve their lives. Interesting skills for someone who wants to convince a nation of an event that may, or may not have happened, don’t ya think?

Question of the Day

With the upcoming midterm elections rapidly approaching, there is a surge of Democrat propaganda flooding all the mainstream media and it brings to mind a question:

Within the last 24 hours, Obama, Clinton, Warren, and other radical leftist Democrats have seen giving speeches, posting blogs and otherwise making comments about how the Republicans, under the leadership of President Trump, destroying America.

My question is this: Who the hell is kidding who, or is it whom?

There are apparently two distinct agendas driving the radical left; money and power, or is it power and money. I guess, either way, they’re seen as inseparable.

While I believe these are two critical issues for them, I feel there is a third issue which is compelling them to act like immature children with name calling, denigration of Americans for having a different opinion, and worst of all, denying Americans the opportunity for freedom of speech. I’m not just talking non-Democrats being attacked, I’m talking to all Americans: if you do not believe in and strictly follow the mandates of the radical Democrats, you will pay the price, and even if you do, you will pay a price. These elitist, politicians and their money grabbing corporate CEOs have joined to wrest control of our country from us. To accomplish this, they must destroy President Trump which in turn would end all the positive things he has done for America.

It is time for the voters to purge our government of proven criminals and traitors to our Constitutional values.

 

Are there no true Americans left?

Each day, I get up, go to the bathroom, put on my robe, go through the living room turning on the TV as I do, and finally enter the kitchen where I put on my pot of coffee. From there I go into my office where I take my blood pressure and do my daily fasting glucose check (I’m an insulin dependent diabetic). By the time I’m done with all this, my coffee is ready so it’s back to the kitchen, unsweetened creamer in my mug followed by hot, strong coffee then back to my desk. During this entire time, I’ve heard how President Trump has been destroying America; taking us to war in North Korea and Syria, then the tune changes to how all these wonderful nations are against us because he is a madman.

After my first sip of great coffee, I realize I’m on the wrong new channel. I swear at my boy, who doesn’t hear me: “Leave my channel on when you’re through watching TV!”

Calm now, I turn to watching my two favorite news channels: FOX and OAN – finally truth, or a damn close proximity to it at last.

Having been a loyal American all my life, I have to admit I am shattered when I hear about all the corruption within our government. What happened?

Our FBI, one known as the best criminal investigative organization in the world turns out to have a corrupt leadership? Politicians on both sides of the aisle are selling America to the highest bidder? A previous president, along with his two secretaries of state may be charged with treason? Professors are insulting the dead and so much more.

Did I fall asleep last night and awake to anarchy in America?

Loyal Americans, regardless of age, sex, ethnicity, wealth, religion, gender orientation, sexual orientation and all the other possible variables need to stand up and say NO MORE.

We do not hate immigrants, we simply want them to obey our laws, as we have to; unfortunately, that may be a truer than not when talking about our leaders.

We cannot allow our Constitution to be attacked by ignorance and corruption; it must stand as our guidebook as it always has.

We cannot allow our leaders to arbitrarily change our laws to meet their political agendas.

We must stop the corruption and abuse in the Swamp.

We must return America to its respected place among nations. Our shining beacon of hope and welcome must never become a snuffed out candle on a Stygian night.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Who the hell is in control of this world?

I am not one for organized religions based on human-constructed ideologies professed to be handed down by a supreme being.

I have faith, yes but it is not to one found in any building or any words created in the minds of humans.  It is a faith instilled in me over my lifetime by powers greater than me who allowed, perhaps even planned challenges I had to overcome to teach me the lessons I needed to learn.

“Why did “God” let this happen?”

Ever heard that phrase? I have, thousands of times. The answer I have most often heard to that question is, “God” works in mysterious ways” which is a cop-out to me.

There is nothing mysterious about God; there are only truth and logic both of which escape most of us.

Since his inauguration on January 20, 2017, a relentlessly vilified President Trump has been working very hard to rehabilitate America, yet there are those who still cry out, “God, why did you let this happen?”

My opinion is “God” did not let it happen. “God” made it happen.

Neither Russia nor any other foreign power interfered with our election – “God” did.

I believe that “God” decided it was time to remove the blinders from those who proclaimed the “liberty” of America and show them the reality. “God” chose to expose the hypocrisy of the elitists and the damage they have done.

Perhaps “God” felt it was time to demonstrate the true meanings of love, faith, and equality of all peoples in a world beset by ignorance and fear.

Whatever the reason, if people truly believe in “God” they must always remember, “God” is in control.

To Halal or Not

TO HALAL, OR NOT TO HALAL, THAT IS THE QUESTION.

Should one concede, add foods people need,
Should one stand strong, plant hatred’s seed?
Silly little ditty but so true.

Now, before I go on I want to make one thing clear, I am not anti any ethnic group.
Today, Sunday I went shopping at the local grocery store. I do not usually go on Sundays due to the crowds but had to get some things for dinner. As I was shopping, more like hunting I noticed something I have never consciously noticed before; overhead signs proclaims sections for “Snacks,” “Pickles, Relishes, Condiments,” “Soups,” “Kosher Foods,” “Coffee and Tea,” “Mexican Foods,” “Asian Foods.” “Baking Supplies,” and so on.. Damn near broke my neck trying to read some of them.
While cranking my neck in one aisle to find wild rice, I accidentally bumped into a young girl who had dashed out in front of me. She was a cutie with beautiful long black hair and eyes that will one day win the hearts of many men. As I regained my composure, a women’s voice called to the child from behind me. I turned to see a young lady in a hajib telling the girl to apologize to me.
I told the lady it was a much my fault as the child, so no harm was done.
As I resumed my hunt for whatever foolish thing I wanted, I started to think about an article I had read last week. It seems a recent immigrant from a predominantly Muslim country was upset about not being able to find “Halal” foods for her family.
Not being a Muslim, I was curious as what Halal is. I googled it and found Halal means permissible. Halal food is food devout Muslims are permitted to eat. The food is prepared to set standards and procedures of Islamic teaching. This is also true of Kosher food prepared in compliance with established Hebrew criteria and procedures. They are similar but different.
So, how can I, a non-Muslim, non-Jew, non-Christian tell if a packaged product is Halal or Kosher? Label – read the label, certified Halal and Kosher products each display a seal of approval from the appropriate certifying agency within that religion.
Yes, I know, I have done a simple form of a complex issue, but I am not promoting anything other than what I have learned as a non-Jew, Muslim, Christian about a topic of interest to me.
Onward to the meat section of my local grocery store where I find Kosher meats section. This one was easy to find because the signs and the Star of David frame it. I think it is cool as it celebrates diversity and honors a commitment by a particular group of people.
I checked around but did not see any Halal meat section so, out of pure curiosity, I finished shopping in this store and went to another one operated by a different company. Know what I found there? Yep, the same product signs, and a Kosher meat section, but nothing other than packaged products with Halal seals. No Halal meat section.
The fact is, I have not noticed any Halal meat sections in any of the stores I shop. Guess no Muslims shop in those stores, right? Wrong! I see Muslims shopping in all the stores I do, so what’s the problem?
I do not know the answer to that question other than to say, all the Muslims I know eat meat, maybe not pork but they do eat lamb, chicken, turkey, beef, and some others. Now that I think about it, my Jewish friends do the same! This led me to believe that the dietary requirements for Muslims may, in fact, be equally applicable to those of the Jewish dietary needs. However, it does not explain why there are not Halal meat sections in stores I shop along with Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Protestants, Hindus, and a plethora of other ethnic shoppers.
Perhaps the problem lies in cost v demand? Most businesses operate on the principle.
I am not suggesting I know the answer; I am suggesting it would be great to see a Halal meat section in the same stores we all shop. If there is a cultural issue, perhaps one could separate the sections by placing all pork products in the center of the display case, then add beef on one side and chicken on the other followed by Halal and Kosher at the respective ends.
I call this inclusion, the forerunner of assimilation and the opponent of anti-culturalism.

Identity in a Global World?

Currently, the United Nations is aggressively promoting the idea of a “Global Community.” The concept is that through trade agreements, treaties and other avenues yet to be put forth, all the Earth’s nations will join as one.  The initial major stage of this agenda began with replacing the monetary systems of some countries with a standard one, the Euro. This was a giant step balked at by numerous countries who felt the loss of their currency might cause a loss of identity.

The next major stage was the forced acceptance of immigrants and refugees from Middle Eastern countries into Australia, New Zealand, and the countries of Europe and North America. This was all done without strong, unified guidelines, security and rules of assimilation and has been a total disaster. Why is it a disaster – in a word, identity?

So what is an identity? Beginning with our DNA, it is unique to each of us. It can be used to identify each of us by ethnicity, heritage, diet, health, culture and numerous other unique features make each of us unique – they are our identity.

The powers controlling the United Nations and the European Union are promoting the Globalization agenda which is robbing both the immigrants/refugees and the people of the host countries of their identity. If allowed to continue, there will be no United Globalized World; there will only be anarchy, resentment, and envy the remnants of lost identities.

 

The next stage of Globalization has already begun with the development and designation of “No Go Zones” in non-Muslim cities. Despite what many think, I do not agree these are intentionally established anti-host country areas. I believe they are attempts by refugees and immigrants to have havens where they may maintain their cultural identity. There are areas of potential problems with this such as the inability to assimilate into a new culture v the new culture accepting an alien culture, the radicalization of severe malcontents on both sides of the agenda and conflicts over common things such as proper clothing, foods, school, etc. that must be effectively addressed. The core issue may be that neither side wants to be a clone of the other side, to do so would destroy identities.

 

How do we combat the negative effects of Globalization on personal and cultural identities?

I believe the first step in combating the negative effects is to teach what true cultural diversity is and how it can positively affect all of us. This must begin in the home, where the cultural values are the strongest. Parents must teach their children the values they may gain from exposure to diversity; not just the negative aspects of an alien culture. We must lower some of our cultural shields to understand the cultures of others better, by doing so, we may come to understand and accept that which is alien in our eyes.

 

Can we accomplish this without surrendering to the entire Global Community agenda? I believe it possible once we realize the benefits, and more importantly the losses of the agenda. No one culture must be forced to surrender its identity to meet the demands of the collective and become drones of the Borg.[1]
