The President Who Could

May 1, 2018

For the past year we have heard how an outsider didn’t have a chance running the United States of America if elected President.  All commentaries from the big media outlets have blasted President Trump as inexperienced, racist, denigrating among a host of other slanted opinions.

Now we hear today Kim Jong In met with the leader of South Korea and announce they will end the war between the North and South. The President who could get this war to end happens to be an outsider with no political office ever held till the POTUS.

This has both parties shaking in their boots, If the president succeeds in all he promised on the campaign trail voters will no longer trust/need career politicians lying to it’s citizens each election cycle about what they will do for the country once elected..

For 50 years we have heard the same political speeches, then once elected the infamous, we can’t accomplish that goal, there is not enough support in the chamber.

Now we will wait and see just where President Trump will stand in history 20 years from now.

Politically Correctness Downfall of a Great Nation

May 26, 2016

Yes I said it, being a PC’er has done nothing for our nation that we can be proud of. We whine and complain about everything that feels bad, hurts our feelings instead of working to achieve and live up to our potential.

Political Correctness is the downfall of a great nation. We once were a mighty land with many who worked hard wanting a better life for themselves and their family. Now, not so. We have individuals who want or feel they desire everything needed to live a life of comfort without putting in the blood,sweat or tears.

Hopefully we will wake up before it is to late as the two party system has eroded the quality of life for all Americans in this Great Nation. May we find a way to regenerate prosperity through hard work once again and not free handouts because they deserve it, they feel it, not earned it.

Proud and Strong

70 years ago, it happened

December 6, 2011

Tomorrow we revisit the attack on Pearl Harbor which transpired 70 years ago.  Beginning at 7:53 AM, Japanese dive bombers dropped 1760 pound explosives on the decks of our fleet destroying 8 Battleships including the USS Arizona. Our Military Family went to work defending the sovereignty of our land with little regard for their personal safety shooting at the Kamikaze pilots with all they had. The surprise attack took 2403 lives that day and wounded more than a 1000 others in just under the two-hour raid.

As we honor our fallen heroes be reminded without our militia this Great Nation would not exist as our Founding Fathers intended it to be. We would not have a Constitution that has withstood all that has been presented to her. We as a nation would have crumbled. For over two hundred and fifty years this nation has been able to prosper because of the uniqueness of the people who came here for freedoms not allowed anywhere else in the World.

December 7, 1941 “A date which will live in infamy” as President Roosevelt stated to Congress and the World over a live radio broadcast just one day after the attack asking Congress for a “Declaration of War” citing the Japanese as our enemy.  World War II would be a struggle to remain free unlike the first World War where we became allies ensuring their freedom from Nazi Germany.

Be thankful for what we have here in America and thank those armed forces members who routinely are put in harms way so we can continue to work and prosper without fear of our Government seizing our land, money and children. God Bless America and all our Military Families out there.

Selflessness, That’s all that is required

September 28, 2011

Last night Governor Chris Christie was at the Reagan Library speaking about leadership and American Exceptionalism.  He spoke to the Republican audience for three quarters of an hour expressing his vision for America with insight on how a democracy works.  Governor Christie pulls no punches as he outlined the need to return to the days of Ronald Reagan when dealing with the issues and believing in the country.

Governor Christie spoke about how the former President “Said what he meant and meant what he said” as he quoted the Air Traffic Controller strike in August of 1981 during his rein in office. Reagan told the striking controllers they needed to return to work or they would be fired “In the end thousands refused and thousands were fired”  Chris goes on explaining the “Whole world was watching” the leadership of this country and the decisions made affects how they see us.  

Christie received some laughs as he continued the speech with “What happens here doesn’t stay here, this is not Vegas” America’s roll is defined by what we say and do at home. “Who we are at home, what we do with each other” is what sets the examples for all the world to understand this great nation.  We get results when we take action regardless of the political ramifications.  “Leadership and compromise” is the only way to reform, cap highest interest rates, and change public sector union contracts so the members pay for the health insurance and retirement funds so they will be there when needed.

The citizens need to hear the truth about where we are and what we need to do to achieve the goals that are good for the nation and the citizens. Congress no longer can effectively govern themselves as our President fails to act on the issues that American’s understand.  “When there is a problem you fix it” Christie emphasized with conviction as he spoke about how Reagan fixed it many times with great leadership. 

As leaders we need to show by example to the world we have our house in order. We need to control our markets, our housing, our jobs and concern ourselves with how other nations view our national affairs.  We should care what others think because we believe democracy and open markets work better than any other system.  If we convince exports and imports create freedom of choice others accepts the notion when they see our system works as intended.

Finally, Governor Christie took questions from the audience showing a side of him that the crowd loved and applauded with emotion unseen since the campaign of 2008 as the President so eloquently stated his “Hope and change” strategy.  He told those listeners in California and on the C-Span network “Real leaders don’t read polls, they change polls” when asked how he would wean individuals off entitlements and the employment picture. He stated he took bold actions when dealing with these problems in New Jersey so they could control the debt in his state. Along with that statement he also stated he was no genius but the solutions are filled with common sense approaches.

Another questioner implored with such emotion and passion that the Governor reconsider his position as she stated with all kidding aside “You are a very powerful and eloquent speaker,…. and I say this from the bottom of my heart…  we can’t wait another 4 years… please sir reconsider, …. please do it for my daughter, do it for our granddaughter, do it for our sons, we need you, your country needs you to run for President.”  This is a man who understands America with the answer to this lady, “I’m just a kid from Jersey who feels like I’m the luckiest guy in the world” being the Governor of his state.

Now we are at a point in time where the citizens of America are imploring a man, a Governor to fight for a country we love and sacrifice his own feelings of self worth to save this country from self destruction.  Remember when campaigns were ran by friends or businessmen who felt strongly about an individual who could do great things for this nation.  The candidate never travel across the country touting just how great they would be.  The people picked the candidate and went out to get the votes.  George Washington when asked to  serve as President responded with a statement of despair asking “Have I not yet done enough for my country! History proves he had not as he was elected with 100% of the electoral votes which no other candidate has ever done to date.

Governor Christie many citizens of this great nation need you to be our next President, not 6 years from now.  We need someone who does not want the job as Jerry Doyle stated today on his radio program.  As the lady in the audience imploded you so to does many other Americans. We need leadership in the White House, we need a Patriot in the White House, many Americans say “We need you Governor Christie.” Make the decision to fight for a country you love just as the George Washington was requested to do by accepting the challenge of being the next leader of the Greatest Nation in the World.  Selflessness will bring this country back to prosperity, Governor Christie for President, Senator Marco Rubio for V.P. a win win situation because as Jerry stated your not ready for the highest office in the land because you don’t feel it in your heart, but America does.

Predatory lending at for profit schools

May 19, 2011

Today on the floor in the Senate Tom Harkin (D) Ia. discussed the predatory lending habits of for profit schools as it related to Military benefits.  The Senator commissioned a study on drop out rates at the for profit schools of those receiving benefits for their education. The report is appalling showing the drop out rate is higher than in the public schools and they usually ended up with personal loans which they will have to pay back. These for profit schools tell students their benefits from the military did not cover all expenses so they need to apply for additional sources of funding.

These schools as with any other business operating for profit must be held accountable for their actions.  If they are ripping off the tax payers with bogus degrees, or receiving federal funds from individuals who have the capability of receiving funds but not the capacity to graduate because of damages received on the battle field.  If your for profit organization defraud the government as the report states than those involved should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I am sickened by the fact so many individuals use predatory lending practices to line their pockets at the expense of our military.  The only way to combat these individuals is to offer strict prison sentences when you knowingly deceive the public of their hard-earned funds.  Pass laws against these types of practices so those institutions that actually do what is right have the opportunity to educate individuals wanting a good education and not a worthless piece of paper from a fly by night operation after all is said and done.

Politician Under Fire!

May 13, 2011

On the hill today former Senator Ensign received the findings concerning the probe into the alleged misconduct surrounding the affairs of the affair.  The committee found reason to send their findings to the DOJ for further investigation.

It is a sad day for the former politician who was a bright star in the Republican Party.  Mr. Ensign was in Iowa courting the voters as he launched his personal appeal for a bid at the Presidency.  Amazing how one moment of weakness tumbles a rising star into the abyss, an outcast now and forever.

Mr. Ensign will live on in the private sector now and continue to work and hopefully the family and friends will not abandon him in his time of need. With some self-reflection and positive influence from those around him possibly he could make a comeback just as Newt has done.

Time will tell as we watch this saga from within the borders of the Great State of Nevada if this former politician comes clean and repairs the damage that has tainted a career that most public servants would have been proud of.

Bringing Jobs Home

April 28, 2011

With Congress discussing ways to cut the deficit to rein in the uncontrolled spending that has eroded the quality of life for every citizen in America they seem to have forgotten one aspect of the economy that would spur growth, jobs. They are talking about everything but bringing jobs back to this country that are now overseas.

During the 1970’s we saw a shift from manufacturing to the service industry as businesses saw an opportunity to increase profits by shipping business overseas. Our manufacturing base declined from 24% in the early 1970’s to 10% in the late 1970’s. During that same period the service industry gained business at a slow and steady pace until it exploded in the 1980’s causing manufacturing to recede even further as more businesses move overseas.

As a nation we can not sustain this country on service, we need broad-based manufacturing back to bring unemployment down, tax revenues up and most importantly an economy that once again will flourish from the East to the West as businesses open up once again and begin to manufacture goods made in America.

Our elected officials do not need to raise taxes on the rich as we so often hear in the media today, what they need to do is to entice businesses to return to America to produce products once again by making a few changes to our trading policies.

First, we must penalize those American companies that produce products outside of the United States, not by increasing taxes but by taking away the loopholes that make it beneficial to continue to produce outside our borders.

Second, we must not allow other countries to manipulate their currency as China does in order to bring products in far below their actual production costs.  This is an unfair advantage and no American company can compete with that.

By making the right choices in Washington we can grow our economy, increasing jobs and reducing our dependency on government assistance.  With a vibrant work force we need less funding on un-employment benefits, welfare and food stamps along with many other government-run functions.  The cyclical effect will help to reduce the 10 plus trillion dollar debt our nations carries.
