Politics…how much do you know?

Most people go about their daily lives oblivious to the working of DC. Every two years and four years they go to the polls to elect their favorite politician. Why is that particular politician their favorite? He told them what they wanted to hear. He tells them the same stuff over and over and his constituents continue to elect him. You see, he belongs to the status quo’s ‘good ole boys club’. So how much do you really know about politics.   According to an influential member of a couple of the worlds bigger liberal think tanks, when it comes to politics, especially global politics, Americans are uneducated. They are easily led. Tell them what they want to hear and have the backing of the media and Americans are easily led. He went on to say that prior to the internet’s coming of age it was simple but now people have a wealth of information at their fingertips. Almost anything they want to know it is there. This slows down the whole process.   The above words are not quotes but if you were to read/listen to the man’s speeches to the Trilateral Commission and the CFR, what I said above is pretty exact to what he stated. So you bright intelligent Americans, how’s that make you feel? THEY feel they have you figured out and I must say I believe it to be true. Not all Americans but a huge part of the voting public knows not what they are doing when they head for the polls.   If your favorite politician tells you ‘This is the platform I am running on. These are my values/beliefs’ and you find out that politician accepts money from sources whose values/beliefs are on the other end of the spectrum from your politicians, does this raise a red flag? Is this something you have ever even thought about? This is happening quite a lot right under your noses. This is not ‘just’ a Republican or ‘just’ Democrat thing, it is going on across the board. I do not care which political party you align yourself with, I assure you that there are ‘wolves’ walking upright in the party of your choice regardless of which one you belong to. So, how do you know that what your favorite politician tells you is true. How do you know that the platform your favorite politician is running on is pure or is it tainted with lies.  How do you know that the money poured in to your favorite politicians campaign coffers came from sources that promote your politicians beliefs and values. Here are the three bigger liberal think tanks in the world. Trilateral Commission, the CFR and the Bilderbergs. Go check them out. See what they are all about. See who the members are. I think you be surprised at how many members of Congress belong to one or more of the think tanks I mentioned. The CFR and Bilderberg memberships are by invite only. Every part of your life, from grocery giants to the news media, major corporations, etc. are represented in these think tanks. They don’t have their yearly conferences just to pass some time. Policy here in America is largely influenced by these people, most who don’t even live in the US. All you have to do to see if your politician is affiliated with any of the think tanks, just Google your politicians name with CFR or one of the others. Typically a wealth of information is at your fingertips. As for where their money comes from, OpenSecrets.org and FollowTheMoney.org are awesome places to start.   You need to look in to who/what Monsanto is and what they and possibly your favorite politician are currently doing that you never knew about. Look in to Sustainable Development/Agenda 21. What is it, who backs it. This I can say, Hillary C. is a huge proponent. If elected, she will finish what THEY had Mr. O start. That I can guarantee you would not like.   Think of the scandals, the N S A, Benghazi, I R S, VA, etc.. While it seems all administrations have their share of scandals, the current one seems to thrive on them. Some are meant to erode from your grasp a little more of your freedom. Go out and read all the different stories/theories on what happened in Benghazi. They range from a straight out attack to a failed kidnapping to gun running gone wrong. Depending on who all was involved, will we ever know the real truth? Do you want to know the real truth?   Sad thing is, there will be a huge part of the voting public that will think it is too much work to go look all that up. Their politician brings money to the state and that is what’s important.  Unfortunately, what else they are doing in DC you are oblivious to. That is what you need to be paying attention to.   It is not a joke and it is no longer a conspiracy theory. America, best get your head out of the sand because if you don’t, before you know it you will be working where you are told, when you are told and you will make what they say you can make. I might add, you won’t be able to keep much of what you make. Why, the world’s elite who now control you, they need to be kept in a certain lifestyle.     I have joked before and said ‘Welcome to the start of the Hunger Games’. Some will say it could never happen. It has happened before and it CAN happen again. They are working on it right under your noses and you do not have a clue. That influential member I mentioned above also once stated that the way to take over a country is one little step at a time and then by the time the people realize what is going on, it is too late.   PLEASE people, when you head for the polls this November, it is up to you to be as educated as you can be. Your country and your country’s flag are depending on you to make the right choice. If you make the wrong choice, I assure you that it is the beginning of the end of America as you have known her. Oh, BTW, THEY do not play favorites. To them there are only 2 classes of people, the rich ruling elite and you. Your purpose in life as far as they are concerned…keep them part of the rich ruling elite.

Will You Remember Me?

8 Sep

A fitting title for this post. This is not what I had planned for this writing but this morning I was scrolling through the posts on Twitter and I came across one posted by @SEALofHonor. Sometimes when I read a post by someone I follow and who follows me, I tend to look at pictures they have saved. This man has some awesome pictures and the words he chose to go with those pictures made them even more awesome. One in particular caught my eye. It was of a warrior perched high on a mountainside with his head turned back looking over his shoulder. The words chose by SEALofHonor to describe this picture were ‘Will you remember me? Will you remember those who risk it all?’ Those words hit home and actually made the hair stand up on my arms. Typically that happens to me when words spoken, pictures viewed, songs heard, or stories read, hit an emotional nerve.

There is always going to be war in this world. In order to have a war you have to have at least two conflicting sides. In order for the war to actually happen, you have to have participants. When the US goes to war, those participants are typically our young people. Our future leaders.  Young people returning from war typically come home in one of three ways, not affected, a flag draped coffin or they return as a ‘wounded warrior’.

For those not affected, they are the lucky ones. They return to their homes and pick up where they left  off. Families are whole again, friendships are renewed. For those who return in a flag draped coffin, they are the unlucky ones. They cannot pick up where they left off. image001Their families are not whole again, they are broken sometimes until the end of time. There will be no friendships renewed. Everyone who knew them has lost a piece of their heart and soul, never to be replaced. Then there are those who returned as ‘wounded warriors’. They are also the unlucky ones. Some return with missing limbs and some return with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and some return with TBI’s (Traumatic Brain Injuries).

I recently had the pleasure of ‘meeting’ a young man who gave 12 years of his life to this country. He was young and vibrant when he chose the military. He had his and his soul mates future planned out.  He was a platoon leader as well as a drill sergeant preparing the ‘newbies’ for what lied ahead. One day on patrol a bomb went off close to him and he was thrown back. With the impact of his landing, his head and the ground met with force. He was blinded for a few minutes but when that disappeared he got up. Despite what he just went through, all he could think about was the safety of his men. Concern for their safety came before his own. His injuries, caused from that explosion, required the military to ‘retire’ him. He is one of the many thousands who return home classified as a ‘wounded warrior’.  His wounds, PTSD/TBI. Someday, his story will be told.

Wounded warriors who return home with PTSD/TBI are becoming the ‘lost boys’ of the military. Some do not experience renewed friendships. Some do not experience a ‘whole family’ again. Some feel they no longer fit in. People do not know how to deal with their wounds. image001They have problems sleeping because when they do, they see the faces of those who came home in a flagged draped coffins. They see, hear and smell over and over what happened while they were fighting for our freedom. They often wonder why they returned home while some others did not. They have dark periods sometimes lasting from a couple of hours, to a couple of days, to a couple of months and sometimes years. Some share with those they are close to what happens during those dark times while some write and some never share. Some go so far as to take their own life thinking that it is the best for all. There is not a week that goes by that a ‘wounded warrior’ somewhere in the US commits suicide because they feel lost and forgotten, not being able to cope with what war has done too them.

If you have a Twitter account, you consistently read tweets referencing the four murdered warriors in Benghazi and the murdered Border Patrol agent killed with guns our government let pass into Mexico. While I agree that those responsible need to be tried and sent to prison, what about the deaths of our ‘wounded warriors’ who returned with PTSD/TBI. What about those ‘wounded warriors’ who do not choose to take their own lives but yet try to live and cope in a society who has forgotten them. Who is standing up for them. PTSD/TBI is an epidemic and needs to be dealt with. Our government needs to step in. They need to take care of what they caused. They can no longer hope that these young men and women just go away. Every resource and every means needs to be taken to help these ‘wounded warriors’.

Before we send our young men and women off to war, someone needs to have the BALLS to reassure them when they ask ‘Will you remember me?’.

A Bit About Me

9 Aug

I was born and raised in a military family. My father was in the Coast Guard, Navy and retired out of the Air Force. We moved around a lot. Thirteen different cities and states before 6th grade. Spent most of my time in Alaska graduating from high school there. Traveled around a bit..different cities, different states when a fluke brought me where I am currently residing.

I am a conservative Republican. Anymore, lean a little further to the ‘tea party’ right. I will not say I have never voted Democrat (maybe once or twice) but hey, the Republican at that time sucked worse. Seems these days a lot of Republicans suck worse.

I believe it is a person’s civic duty to vote regardless of whether you think it will count or not. If you do not vote, you have no place in a ‘bitch fight’ with any politician. You did not vote so you have to accept things as they currently are. I also believe that if you vote, it is YOUR DUTY to KNOW who you are voting for. You don’t just vote Republican because you are a Republican. Same if you are a Democrat or Independent. It takes research. You cannot know a politician by just what you hear in the news. We all know that the news media for the most part, is owned by the current administration…or the people that are pulling the puppet strings.

What I write in my blogs is occasionally my ‘opinion’ but mostly a snippet from an article(s) hoping to entice you into reading it/them and developing your own opinion. I could condense all the articles in a post but when a person does that, you tend to interject your own thoughts thus possibly swaying someone to your way of thinking. That is not why I started to blog. I did it in the hopes of turning people into researchers and thus forming their own opinion. It seems too much these days that people believe what they are told. Unfortunately that is what has got us where we are today.

I believe in God as my creator and Jesus Christ as my savior. I believe Jesus Christ dies for our sins. I do not though put too much belief in organized religion. I believe that religion resides in your heart and your mind.  If you live your life right, in that you do for others that are less fortunate then in the end you will do alright. Too many organized religions believe that THEY are the only true religion and that all others are wrong. Some believe that if you are a new-born and die before you are baptized you will go to hell. That is just STUPID! I believe that there are people who say they are ‘men of the cloth’ but in reality they would strip you of your belongings if they could get away with it.

I suppose you could call me racist. There are people of ALL races that I despise! I would never dislike you because of the color of your skin but I  will dislike you because as a person you suck! I cannot stand people that play the race card. I also cannot stand people that blame other races for their current place in life. Some people have to work harder at life than other, just the way it is. I consider you a quitter if you blame others for your plight. It seems these days too many people want the easy life. They want everything good handed to them and they want it NOW. I am white but hey, being white did not give me a ticket to the pot at the end of the rainbow. I have worked for everything that I have, nothing was handed to me. I have never taken a government handout except for 6 weeks of unemployment when I was young. My family and I went without any insurance for many years which included two births. I had an employer screw me out of almost 2 years worth of Social Security taxes he took out of my checks. I reported him and the government did nothing. I have lived in places some of you would not cross the threshold of. I could have given up when things were not good but I didn’t. I went to college later in life and I paid on student loans for ten years after. There were times I felt like defaulting because people were doing it but hey, I borrowed the money, I pay it back. Now everyone whines that they owe money and they want the government to excuse some of what they owe. That is just STUPID! I have even heard some young people say that Joe Blow over there that has millions of dollars..well I should be able to have some of it, just because. That is the biggest STUPID there is!

I get really riled up these days with politics. I am beginning to think that there are more crooked politicians then there is not. I think they tell you what you want to hear so you elect them and they continue to tell you what you want to hear so you continue to re-elect them, all the while doing nothing they promised. I think as the years go by there are more and more of them that are doing ‘back door’ deals with special interest groups and lobbyists all the while thumbing their noses at the very people that elected them.

Politicians pass bills they have never read…Nancy Pelosi’s famous words on the passing of OCare…’let us get it passed and we will find out what is in it later’! Well they found out what was in it ‘later’ and now have been excused from the law by POTUS while the rest of us have to abide by the ‘POS’! It is my guess when it comes time for the Immigration bill, they will do the same thing. Even the ‘yahoos’ that drafted the bill have no idea what is in it. One was asked about the part of the bill that will give the illegal’s 2 or 3 times being caught with a fake passport before they are deported. What IDIOT drafted that part of the bill???? The one that was asked that question did not even know it was in the bill! Then there is the part of the bill dealing with ‘border security’. On the surface, it looks good but once read and thought about it is JUST WORDS. One of the drafters of that part of the bill, ex-Gov John Hoeven, was questioned on a cable news show and got incredibly tongue tied because that part of the bill is a ‘POS’, to be blunt. The whole thing is another ‘snow job’ on the people of America. The only reason any Republican wants the bill passed is because of POWER, MONEY and VOTES! All in the name of re-election. It seems they do very little for the actual people who elected them to watch their backs. Once in, there is only one back they watch and that is their own. I think it is called ‘political self-preservation’. They have all become what Sarah Palin once said ‘one of the good ole boys’.

So that is a little about me..in a nut-shell. Read my posts, believe what you want. Follow the article links. Do some research on your won. DEVELOP YOUR OWN OPINION. America is counting on you for her survival!

Have a great day!

Monsanto – The Short of It

1 Aug

Who is Monsanto? In part here is WIKI’s definition:

 

Monsanto Company is a publicly traded American multinational agricultural biotechnology corporation headquartered in Creve Coeur, Missouri. It is a leading producer of genetically engineered (GE) seed and of the herbicide glyphosate, which it markets under the Roundup brand.

For a full description: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monsanto

Back in March of this year, what is called the ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ (actually called Farmer Assurance Provision – Section 735 of H.R. 933) was passed and signed in to law by Obama. Here is an interesting article that shows ties between Obama and Monsanto:

http://www.infowars.com/how-did-barack-obama-become-monsantos-man-in-washington/

The ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ was authored by Senator Roy Blunt, with a little help from Monsanto. It was quietly slipped into the temp appropriations bill drafted to prevent a government shutdown. I might add over the past 8 or so years, Monsanto has funneled over 60,000.00 to Blunts campaign coffers. My guess is that you could check out everyone who voted favorably for the bill and you would find many who have received money from Monsanto.

Here is a link to SNOPES take on the ‘Monsanto Protection Act':

SNOPES take on the ‘Monsanto Protection Act': http://www.snopes.com/politics/business/mpa.asp

There is even a company, AquaBounty Technologies, Inc., that wants commercial approval of its AquAdvantage salmon. which supposedly grows twice as fast as natural salmon. It is believed that the FDA may gives its approval sometime this year. There is a good article to read on the millions of people who have asked the FDA to not give its approval: http://www.fooddemocracynow.org/blog/2013/apr/30/nearly_2_million_people_tell_fda_ban_gmo_salmon/

So, do you eat genetically modified food? Do you want to?  According to EWG (Environmental Working Group) an analysis of recent government data shows that Americans eat an average of 193 pounds of genetically engineered food over a 12-month period. I was surprised to read that. How would you know that what you are eating was ‘genetically modified/engineered’? Here is a link that shows a list of companies that sell products linked to Monsanto or other companies that manufacture food that is genetically modified.

http://fracturedparadigm.com/2013/04/02/boycott-monsanto-a-simple-list-of-companies-to-avoid/

Recently it came out that Whole Foods Corp. has finally ‘given’ in to the USDA on allowing GE foods to be sold in their stores. What they sell is ‘organic’…not quite sure just how ‘organic’ the foods they will be selling will be. The title of the following article is a little misleading. There was no ‘force’. In fact, the CEO’s of the two companies mentioned in the article contributed to past campaigns of USDA Secretary, Tom Vilsack and are supposedly personal friends.

http://fracturedparadigm.com/2013/04/04/usda-forces-whole-foods-to-accept-monsanto/

In one of my last posts on Agenda 21, I mentioned the following article which links Monsanto and Agenda 21: http://beforeitsnews.com/opinion-conservative/2013/03/farmers-view-un-agenda-21-monsanto-protection-act-2610434.html

What countries have either banned or have restrictions on GMO’s? http://www.ehow.com/info_8527757_countries-banned-gmo-foods.html

http://www.examiner.com/article/what-countries-have-banned-gmo-crops

You know, I could have summed up all the articles posted and put it all in to my own words. Problem with that is when you are not particularly fond of something, it shows in your writing. I don’t want to be biased. I want you to start with the articles mentioned here and hopefully it will incite and urge to find out more. This way you can make up your mind as to what you want to believe and what not to believe.

I will say this, no ‘real’ studies have been done on the consumption of food that has been modified in a lab. No one really knows the effects down the road. But hey, in Washington DC, money speaks. It begets POWER and hey, is that not what it is all about?
