Although the terrorist whose attempt to kill hundreds in a plane bombing was clearly associated with this terrorist leader in the USS Cole attack, the 9-11 attack and the more recent Fort Hood attack, the president's first response, as he continued his Hawaiian vacation mind you, was to try to tell us it was just an act of an individual.
THE ADVERSE PUBLIC REACTION FORCED A SECOND RESPONSE. But, even on his second response he couldn't attribute the act to terrorist war.
On the 4th day, IN RESPONSE TO OVERWHELMING PUBLIC NEGATIVE REACTION, he decided it was an act of terrorism.
In his second address, the president forcefully announced that whoever was responsible for allowing this act to take place with FULL ADVANCE WARNING would pay for letting the ball fall between chairs.
UH, THE TWO LEADERS MOST RESPONSIBLE ALSO CONTINUED THEIR OWN VACATIONS AS IF THE ACT WAS NOT IMPORTANT. Lets see, shall I keep to the ski trails or shall I find out how a terrorist came so close to killing my fellow countryman?
On his latest address, however, he is not interested in POINTING THE BLAME FINGER. ALTHOUGH NEARLY 300 HUNDRED PEOPLE NEARLY DIED, NO ONE WOULD BE HELD RESPONSIBLE.
THE PRESIDENT'S NATIONAL DEFENSE LEADER IMMEDIATELY SAID THAT THE PRESIDENT'S DEFENSE SYSTEM WORKED. The public reaction cause an immediate change in that story.
PEOPLE - YOUR REACTION TO GOVERNMENT'S FAILURES IS POWERFUL. SPEAK UP! REACT! AND BY ALL MEANS PLAN TO VOTE AND ENCOURAGE YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO ALSO GET INVOLVED. YOU HAVE THE REAL POWER. USE IT!
But, I digress. I don't want to address day-to-day events, right? HMM
TODAY I WOULD LIKE TO WRITE ABOUT THE SECOND MOST IMPORTANT ITEM IN AMERICAN'S LIVES, JOBS!
Would you please reread my December 7, 2008 blog FIGURES DON'T LIE BUT LIARS FIGURE?. Then the headlines all read "UNEMPLOYMENT EXPLODES". The national unemployement rate had only edged up slightly from 6.5% to 6.7%, a 50 year average.
Despite the assurance of presidential aspirant, Obama, that he would not allow national unemployment to exceed 8%, the national unemployment continues north of 10%. WHERE ARE THE HEADLINES NOW with 85 thousand losing their jobs in December?
ON AND ON AND ON.......But this is just a blog. You get the drift, huh? Your reaction today is just as important as was the Americans who resisted the oppression of King George. DON'T JUST SIT THERE, DO SOMETHING, even if it is just to speak up.
FIGURES DON'T LIE BUT LIARS FIGURE AND THE MEDIA DECIDES HOW TO PAINT THE PICTURE. Look at these charts and express your own opinions to your family and friends. See where the unemployment was in November '08 when Obama took control.
Supposedly, in an attempt to turn around unemployment, Obama's adminstration, backed by a SINGLE PARTY CONGRESS, has taken over the banks and key American businesses and is in the process of taking over the nation's health insurance.
When government takes over business it is socialism. NOT TO MENTION WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE BUSINESSES THEY HAVE ALREADY TAKEN OVER. Can you say THE RAILROADS, MEDICARE, OR THE POST OFFICES.
There are problems with the nation's health care. My son, who has a blood problem, cannot buy insurance. My brother, who had great insurance, exceeded the limitations of his policy when he developed bone cancer. The bills he left his widow has destroyed her financially. BUT IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO PUT YOU, YOUR CHILDREN AND YOUR CHILDREN'S CHILDREN into debt to correct these problems.
Simple Tort Reform and establishing interstate insurance laws would go a long ways towards correcting these problems. Don't expect that, though, from the gang of exlawers who are running congress.
EXCEPT FOR FOX, YOU DON'T HEAR MUCH ABOUT THIS DEFICIT CHART EITHER, THANKS FOX!
JOBS? Supposedly, the illegal aliens only do the work that Americans won't do. Just take a trip to the small manfacturing facilities in your neighborhood and see who is coming and going at shift change.
WHEN HAVE YOU LAST HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT ILLEGAL ALIENS? You won't because they represent future votes. BECAUSE OF THE MASS MIGRATION ON OUR SOUTHERN BORDER HISPANICS ARE WELL ON THEIR WAY TO BEING THE DOMINATE GROUP IN AMERICA. Look at this growth chart.
WHY THE LOSS IN BUYING POWER? CAN YOU SAY DEBT?
God Bless US and God Bless the USA.
