This is way off the beaten path but something that has hounded me for some time. This is geared mainly to the teachers out there that have a myspace page or a facebook page or a blog. I see absolutely nothing wrong with teachers having the aforementioned but what really gets me is when teachers allow students to see their pages and they have less than desirable stuff on there. If you have pictures of you partying and acting wild and all that nonsense and you are a teacher you should not allow anyone but your friends see that page. I personally don't think you should have that stuff on the Internet but it's your choice. Teachers that allow students to see them in their party life lose all credibility as a teacher... I have recently seen it happen. It is a shame that people do not have the sense to not allow the public see that junk. Anyway just a random thought I needed to get off my chest.
Some people may call me heartless or someone who just doesn't care about other people, but I take a hard line when it comes to health care and government assistance. First let me say that I believe that our elderly and military should be taken care by us. Military, I believe deserve to never have to pay for any kind of health insurance for the rest of their life. They have most definitely earned the right to be taken care of. Without them we wouldn't be free.
Now having cleared that out I am totally opposed to providing health care to people who are capable of working and earning it. This may seem harsh but, since when has it became a God given right to have free health care? Do I think we should turn these people away if they do not have health insurance? No. I think they have a right to health care just not free health care. Why should the burden of others have to fall on the tax payers? Are we not taxed enough to pay for the run away spending that our government has placed directly on our shoulders.
Our president recently had a meeting with Health Insurance companies to pretty much tell them they had to cut costs. On the surface this seemed like a great Idea, but think about how insurance companies will save money......... Got an answer yet? By denying claims or rationing health care. What I mean by rationing health care is they will be less apt to cover certain types of surgeries or medical procedures needed. Our privatized health care will be in control of the government bureaucrats. So they will be choosing what health care we need and who needs it.
We have the greatest health care system in the world and under the Obama administration he looks to control it. Here is the thing if we have our taxes raised the next administration can come in and lower them. They can change most policies that were enacted, but when you change the health insurance to where it encompasses everyone then it is near impossible to change it back. It seems that our president has his agenda and he doesn't care what we think.....
Over the years as I have immersed my self in the political spectrum I have seen some things that shocked me. It is amazing the thought process of some people who are supposed to represent our hopes and desires. Seriously I'm tired of our representatives taking it upon themselves to decide what they want is law and not what the people want.
Right now in congress there is a bill circulating. It is called the "The Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act." Ok first let me explain something... Our wonderful, educated, all knowing, liberal government decided a few years ago that we needed something to punish people who hurt or kill someone because of their race, religion(besides Christianity), or sexual orientation. For example if white person kills a black person, then it would be a hate crime because it would supposedly be racially motivated and it may be. However, if you kill someone intentionally is it not hate that drives you? Protecting yourself is a different manner, but we have laws on the books to punish murderers and rapist and loads of others. Does this mean that the laws we have are inadequate? Is murder not murder? Anyway just something to ponder, back to my original point.
In this bill that is being worked on they have inserted pedophiles into the ones who will be PROTECTED! Seriously what are the dems trying to do? Let me explain a little bit, Ill use myself as an example: I have a beautiful little girl who I love more than life itself, if a man rapes my little girl and I attack that man because of it I can be arrested and charged with a HATE CRIME! I am being dead serious. Republicans tried to get the pedophiles removed and add soldiers who come home from fighting who are spit on and hit with bottles and such. Guess what? The democrats refused to have the soldiers added and refused to remove pedophiles. I do not know what is driving these people other than sheer ignorance or the devil. I guess both.
Contact your senators NOW! Tell them that you want them to filibuster this!
I've talked about it before how Israel would not stand for Iran becoming Nuclear. Now that they are pressing hard to achieve nuclear status the Israeli's are preparing to strike. I would dare to speculate that it is just a matter of time before Israel takes out Iranian nuclear facilities. Recently elected Prime Minister Netanyahu isn't one to sit around and wait to be attacked he will strike first.
Now my concern is how will the U.S. respond when they do attack. Will they take the cowardly road and denounce the attacks(Which is what I expect of Obama) or will they stand with their long time ally and support them. When I look and see how the U.S. wants the Israeli's to split their land and create two separate states I have a feeling our president will not stand with them. My major concern is that Iran is receiving weapons from Russia and are allied with them. Will Russia join the fight if Israel attacks. I think they would see this as an opportunity to remove the Israeli nation. Will then the U.S. respond and help Israel.. Scary to think about
