Syria – What Americans Think

What people post on line is a reflection of what they think. The volume of posts on Syria is huge. The following are what I see without looking actually. What that means is I am not searching for Syria stories and points of view. What is amazing is that I see no posts from Americans in favor of aggressive action toward Syria except from the Obama team. It is time our elected officials listen to those who elected them. If they know something that we don’t the time is now to disclose it.

Democrat and Republican Lesson with Woman in Hot Air Balloon

hot_air_balloonWoman in Hot Air Balloon

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered
her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him,

“Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet
him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re in a
hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground
elevation of 2,346 feet above sea level. You are at 31
degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100
degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be a Republican.

“I am,” replied the man. “How did you know?”
“Well,” answered the balloonist, “everything you told me
is technically correct. But I have no idea what to do
with your information, and I’m still lost. Frankly,
you’ve not been much help to me.”
The man smiled and responded, “You must be an
Obama-Democrat.”

“I am,” replied the balloonist. “How did you know?”

Well,” said the man, “you don’t know where you are –
or where you are going. You’ve risen to where you are,
due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise
you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve
your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you
were in before we met, but somehow, now it’s my fault.”

July 4th 2013 – We Are No Longer Independent

Memorial DayI honor all the women and men who have fought for our country and are still fighting for the idea of our country. I am deeply saddened to see how we have ignored the infringement or our rights:

Declaration of Independence

“We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights that among these are life, libery and the the pursuit of happiness.”

We Have Failed Our Servicemen and Women Miserably

And we are failing our children miserably.

We Are Not Independent and Free

We have allowed government to outlaw God and prayer in our schools when we should be shipping those who disagree to a country where they can practice what they believe.

We allow government to continue without question when there are serious questions surrounding events including Benghazi, Sandy Hook, the Boston Bombings, the IRS scandal and more. We just are complacent on these and many other issues.

I wake up in a place that shelters me, has running water and where I have access to good food for nourishment. I am truly blessed in comparison to 50% of the world’s population that struggles for acceptable drinking water and if found has minimal chance for sufficient daily nourishment. I am allowing my government to ignore this absolutely solvable condition.

We have allowed our government to establish such restrictions that the medical community goes offshore where there are amazing advancements in solving cancer, heart failure, body part failure, dementia and more.

We have allowed government to spend huge money so that people who do not understand English can receive benefits. None of my grandparents understood English and guess what –I do and so does all in my family and we achieved that without any government assistance or having to press 2 if you want to hear the message in another language.

We allowed the government to implement policies which have driven the national debt to nearly 17 trillion dollars and in reality it is over 100 trillion when you count unfunded obligations.

We have allowed government to implement policies which has resulted in unemployment being the highest ever in an period we call recovery. The unemployment rate is so high because we have allowed government to implement laws that tax growth and implement programs that make it easy for people to not move to a place where jobs are needed.

We allow the food stamp program to more than double in four years all the while there are towns crying for help because they cannot find people who will work. Many of the 47 million people on food stamps and the countless million on the government dole have the ability to work but why would they?

Bottom Line

We have allowed our government to evolve to where we do not trust those in government unless you are receiving benefits that are the primary reason unfunded programs account for over 100 million in debt. If you are in that group I feel you are delusional as to the sustainability of such programs. If you think I am against helping those in need I take you back to my childhood where none of these programs existed and we helped each other. Our country was founded on the principle of the Republic which means the rights rest primarily local and not national.

We have allowed our government to extend the responsibility for defending our country to coercing citizens by threat of confiscation of weapons and surviellence of our every move in the interest of homeland security. This extends to the outrageous search seizure and delay at our airports.

Yes we continue to enjoy many freedoms and I am always so appreciative to return to the US when traveling internationally. However I am embarrassed at the lack of vocal opposition to the truth of what our government stands for which essentially is a socialist society vs. the republic on which this country was founded

God Bless the USA and The World

Just because a person who is worth more than $8 billion dollars speaks doesn’t mean we should listen. However in this case we should pay very close attention because Donald built his wealth by adding incredible value to properties and businesses. He applies the same logic to the US and he makes perfect sense.

Is it credible? You decide!

For me – see below

I have been on line since December 1995

My contact email address has been on line since then and yes the original one forwards to my gmail account now. However the original one is still alive and gets traffic

I am easy to find

My phone number has been published on line for 12 years. Yes it is true that if I do not recognize the number I will not answer.

So why would I hide? I don’t why would I disguise where I am going or what I am doing? I don’t.

I think if you are confident in you skin you are not afraid of being out there. No let’s look at another area – points of view opposite of mainstream popular politics. If you follow me on Facebook and other social media sites you will see I am what some would label a Patriot – I prefer the Libertarian label -doesn’t matter. What I stand for are the tenants of our constitution. I stand for at a deeper level Life Rights – the right of all to live their intentions in freedom and peace.

U.S. Marine’s Scathing Response to Senator Dianne Feinstein Gun Control Proposal January 3, 2013

feinstein

MORE PEOPLE NEED TO STAND UP TO SENATOR FEINSTEIN, SHE HAS NO RIGHT TO TRY AND TAKE OUR GUNS…..

Senator Dianne Feinstein,

I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime.

You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.

I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.

I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.

We, the people, deserve better than you.

Respectfully Submitted

Kitty Werthmann and Her Loss of Freedom in Austria – This Is Happening In The US

Kitty Werthmann

Read Kitty Werthmann’s eyewitness account of the loss of freedom in her native Austria:

——————————————-

December 22, 2012 – “What I am about to tell you is something you’ve probably never heard or read in history books,” she likes to tell audiences.

“I am a witness to history.

“I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history.

If you remember the plot of the Sound of Music, the Von Trapp family escaped over the Alps rather than submit to the Nazis. Kitty wasn’t so lucky. Her family chose to stay in her native Austria. She was 10 years old, but bright and aware. And she was watching.

“We elected him by a landslide – 98 percent of the vote,” she recalls.

She wasn’t old enough to vote in 1938 – approaching her 11th birthday. But she remembers.

“Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.”

No so.

Hitler is welcomed to Austria

“In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25 percent inflation and 25 percent bank loan interest rates.

Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs.

“My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people – about 30 daily.’

“We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933.” she recalls. “We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living.

“Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group – Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone in Germany was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back.

“Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.

“We were overjoyed,” remembers Kitty, “and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and
everyone was fed.

“After the election, German officials were appointed, and, like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.

“Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn’t support his family. Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been re- quired to give up for marriage.

“Then we lost religious education for kids

“Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school.. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler’s picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn’t pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang ‘Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles,’ and had physical education.

“Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail.”

And then things got worse.

“The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free.

“We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.

“My mother was very unhappy,” remembers Kitty. “When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn’t do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun – no sports, and no political indoctrination.

“I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing.

“Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time, unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler.

“It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn’t exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy.

“In 1939, the war started, and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn’t work, you didn’t get a ration card, and, if you didn’t have a card, you starved to death.

“Women who stayed home to raise their families didn’t have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.

“Soon after this, the draft was implemented.

“It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps,” remembers Kitty. “During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys.

“They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines.

“When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat.

“Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.

“When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers.

“You could take your children ages four weeks old to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, seven days a week, under the total care of the government.

“The state raised a whole generation of children. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.

“Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna..

“After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything.

“When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full.

“If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

“As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80 percent of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families.

“All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

“We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables.

“Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn’t meet all the demands.

“Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.

“We had consumer protection, too

“We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the livestock, and then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.

“In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps. The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated.

“So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work.

“I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van.

“I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months.

“They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.

“As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.

“Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law-abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long afterwards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

“No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.

“Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.”

“This is my eyewitness account.

“It’s true. Those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.

“America is truly is the greatest country in the world. “Don’t let freedom slip away.

“After America, there is no place to go.”

Kitty Werthmann

Going Past the Headlines of The Labor Department’s November 2012 Job Market Report

The Headlines Reported: 146,000 Jobs Were Added In November

What Nobody is Paying Attention To:

1. The Labor Department said Hurricane Sandy did not affect November results – surely that is a second act of nature on the area.
2. 350,000 workers dropped off he radar in November – they stopped looking for work.
3. The Wall Street Journal reported the share of available labor force which is working fell to 63.2% down from 65.7% in June of 2009 when it is reported the recession ended. (Are you like me and missed the memo where the recession has ended.) Two thirds of the available work force are working!! This is the lowest level since 1981.

The WSJ republished the summary of a report by Economist Casey Mulligan of the University of Chicago, that the huge increase in government benefits for not working – food stamps, disability payments, and unemployment insurance are increasing the incentives not to work. “Welfare payments that redistribute income from workers to non workers now exceed a trillion dollars a year!”

To the liberals who think raising taxes will solve this problem, please comment below and tell us how.
