What has Our Government Done for Us Lately?

What has our government done for us lately? I’ll get to that.

First I want to tell you what our government has done to us lately…They are baling out the Wall Street and the greedy big-wigs that are suffering a huge mess that they made for themselves…we are suffering their mess too.

Meanwhile wile our government is bailing out the greedy hoards in America’s financial community that we are paying the cost with our tax dollars some of us can’t afford our medicine, can’t afford to pay our bills, and are loosing our homes.

Our government is not about to bail us out…even with our own tax dollars. I can’t afford my medicine and my wife and I are about to loose a home that we have been paying on for fifteen years yet we will we see any help from our tax dollars…NO!

Do you think that either of the candidates for president is going to help us? Do you think that either of the candidates is going to make our financial woes go away? I tell you…NO!

The one who claims to be the champion for average people is the one telling you that he is going to change things…to make things better for the average American. Well he is either lying or ignorant! I think he is lying because he thinks we are ignorant. Why?

Well, he has promised that he is going to cut taxes for the middle class and raise cooperate taxes. Do you like that? Did you know that if he does that it is probably going to cost you more?

How do you think these cooperation’s are going to pay these new higher taxes? To begin with, they will raise the prices of the consumer goods they make and we buy and slash jobs, In the end your tax cut is going to cost you a lot more than if nothing changed. The real people who are going to hurt from what the champion of the average people wants to do are the poor, but they are always the one who pays the price!

Now, back to the original question… What has our government done for us lately? The one thing our government does for all of us is keep us safe from outside and internal forces that would love nothing more than to see us destroyed. No matter what you think of our current administration, since 9/11/ 2001 they have kept us safe within our boarders. That is the strength of our government and the one thing they do for all of us so I think it is obviously the deciding factor and only promise the candidates can make and possibly make.

I don’t think that the self proclaimed champion for the average American is experienced enough or strong enough to keep that one promise! It’s you vote in November so don’t listen to the MSM and make your decision because they will not tell you the whole truth if they tell you any truth at all. Think for yourself and do your own research and then cast an educated vote!

Obama’s Trustworthiness?

To be honest I don’t believe Obama to be trustworthy. I hate to say it but Jesse Jackson was right…Obama does talk down to blacks; in fact he talks down to everybody regardless of color.

When Obama was speaking in a church in Louisiana he pulled out his “I Have a Dream” voice. Obama is not nor will he ever be in the same league as Martin Luther King! However, that didn’t stop him from trying to speak like a black Baptist Preacher…were I a member of that church I would have been insulted.

When Obama was speaking to blacks in South Carolina, and other places, he tried to talk street…again insulting.

When Obama talks to upper crust white people he tries to sound whiter and when he talks to small town whites he attempts to seem a little more redneck…insulting.

When Obama talks to a general audience he sounds like a white, dig me, dig me, piano bar piano player…arrogant and obnoxious.

If the man can’t just be himself, no matter who he is talking to then to my way of thinking he is untrustworthy…not to be trusted.

There are questionable things and people in Obama’ past that for me have not been answered…he talks around them.

As Americans we should all use our given freedom to vote for the person of our choice. I agree that there is really no one to vote for, (there never is!) and I really don’t won’t to vote for McCain, but since I have been given this freedom I will vote as I usually do…for the lesser of the two evils, and in this case for me it is John McCain.

Why? Because he is up front and honest about his opinions, and who he is, and doesn’t try to win us over by just saying what he thinks we want to hear, and in a voice meant to convince you that he is one of you.

I trust McCain; he is strong enough to protect our country!

I do not trust Obama; I don’t think he has backbone enough to face down the international treats that we are confronted with!

Concerning the economy…we are in a down cycle and, I know this to be true because I have lived through many of them. It doesn’t matter whether a Democrat or Republican is in office our economy is going to have its ups and downs. I believe that a lot of the blame for our economic cycling is Capitalism in the United States has grown too large to manage and those at the top of the capitalistic game have learned to well how too manipulate it.

These days for a lot of corporate bigwigs it’s about getting in and making as much money as they can and just as they have about run their respective corps into the ground they get out…if they can time it right, if not the system slaps them on the hand and they move on.

The only way to lessen the impact of these down cycles would be more government intervention and nobody wants that.

So, don’t blame the economy on politics or politicians, they are not directly responsible for the downturns if they are honest and trustworthy.

Now, vote for who ever you want but think about it before you make up your mind. Our economy is in the hands of the private sector and the level of greed that influences their decisions. The safety of the United States is in the hands of our President and how strong a leader he is and to me the man strong enough and experienced enough to keep our country safe this time around is John McCain.

Out of the Fires of Hell the Vulture Soars

Out of the Fires of Hell the Vulture Soars

Out of the fires of hell the vulture soars

Seeking to feast on the carnage wrought by

Politicians and lawyers

Bankers and Wall Street traders

Business men, and women, who drive their slaves to near insanity and offer no reward for their efforts

Chieftains of “mega churches” who give their souls, not to God, but to the evil of greed as they pad their portfolios

By extremist of every stripe throughout the world

Let it be known to all of these that they are, and will be, the fuel that feeds the fires of hell that sends forth the vulture to clean up the butchery of the innocent
