Fresh Hot Politics here!

Politics Today

The feeding frenzy of politics is on the move devouring the President and anyone associated with him. I feel bad for our President because he was honestly dealt a hand of cards that he didn't know how to play. He had Aces in his hand but the deck was against him and all the folks in the congress. If this was a game of Texas hold em he played his hand as best he could. The flop burned him and he never knew when to fold. Same mistake just a different administration. He was all in and that was the game he was stuck with. His political chips were sacraficed and he is taking everyone of his people with him.

The chips are the kids coming home in pieces or caskets and he still thinks he is right. Some times I think he is right and other times I know he isn't. When you want to fight a war you don't cut veterans benefits? You don't ask for tax cuts when there is a war to pay for? Never has there been a tax cut in time of war in all of our countries history. Never! Makes you want to ask who is in the ear of the President of the United States? Then again, Exxon just posted record profits, you are paying through the nose for gasoline and oil that comes from the gulf of Mexico and Canada for troubles thousands of miles away.

There was a reason Bill Clinton stayed away from middle east problems and fights, they have always been there and will be there one thousand years from now. The heat is killing them and they just don't know better enough to get the hell out of the sun.

Iraq will only see a democracy if the people that want it fight for it. That is a freedom you have to want to fight for. Big Brother can't give it to you. It has to be in your heart. Till that time comes, they will kill anyone and everyone that tries to force it down thier throat. The region just isn't ready for it. Our President tried to fight the good fight but the cards just are not going his way.

Tell me what you think?

U.S. Presidency for Sale

Presidential Politics

I was shocked to read today on the world wide web that the office of President of the United States has a price tag attached to it. If you can't raise at the least one hundred million dollars for the office you are not a serious candidate? Anybody think this is the wrong way to go or is it just me? If you know where the money is you can be President of the United States of America. This scares me as an American.

Who has a stop watch of when the White House is renamed with a Microsoft logo on the front door? Or dare I say it is the Haliburton White House? Pick a special interest of your choice and that is what our government has become. How many dollars are chasing after the office that is supposed to watch out for the American people? Billions! What else is there in politics but money. Follow the money and you find where the person running for office sucks up. Speaches are bullshit and we all know it. The only thing that happens in Washington is the sucking legislation that takes yet another dollar out of the wallets of the working middle class. Not once, but twice and three times and ten times over and over again. We are the tapping generation to save the upper classes bank accounts.

Republicans and Democrats just don't get it anymore and we have no other serious party to even consider. We are at war for weapons of mass destruction that now we know were or were not there, our kids are still dying. Point the blame anywhere you want but kids are still dying. God bless them for serving regardless. They did what they were trained to do in service to the United States of America. That is what people should be thinking about come the elections this fall. Devil you know or the devils you don't know?

Folks have to think alot more about who you vote for President this next election because as you have seen in life lately, it matters if you vote. They are all at the feeding trough now getting their fill of donations to man the war chest of an election and the joke of it all is that they really don't care what you think as an individual. It is all about winning the election. The seriousness of the office is secondary to the checks being cashed. Think about your vote and more of what you want to hear and less of what realy happens. Choose your government wisely with your vote.

Vote and be counted is all I'm saying.

Patriot Guard Mission Statement

I copied this from the website I hope they know that this is a supportive effort.

Patriot Guard Riders Mission Statement
The Patriot Guard Riders is a diverse amalgamation of riders from across the nation. We have one thing in common besides motorcycles. We have an unwavering respect for those who risk their very lives for America’s freedom and security. If you share this respect, please join us. We don’t care what you ride, what your political views are, or whether you’re a "hawk" or a "dove". It is not a requirement that you be a veteran. It doesn't matter where you’re from or what your income is. You don’t even have to ride. The only prerequisite is Respect. Our main mission is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family. Each mission we undertake has two basic objectives.1. Show our sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities.2. Shield the mourning family and friends from interruptions created by any protestor or group of protestors. We accomplish the latter through strictly legal and non-violent means.
Directly above is the Patriot Guard Riders’ Mission Statement.
Please read it. If you don’t agree with it, please don’t join. If you’re looking for a group that protests, counter-protests or confronts any organization, you’re in the wrong place.
The PGR is not a protest group.

Fallen Soldiers Funerals

Patriot Guard Riders

I saw a story about protestors of killed soldiers in the war tonight on CNN. Protesting a funeral of a soldier popped a nueron or two in my head that told my brain something isn't right here. Who in thier right mind would do that to a family in mourning? It just didn't make sense to me.

I buried my own father who was a decorated purple heart Veteran of WWII that went on to serve again for Korea and that was a tough day for me. My Dad was seventy three when Alzhiemers finally took him away but he had lived a good life, raised seven kids and buried our Mom the love of his life. He was one of the lucky ones that survived and lived his life to the fullest that he could. Would someone of protested my fathers service to his country? Would someone see this man that was a medic in the United States Navy and attached to the Marines that he saved on Iwo Jima as a war monger? Never thought that it could have happened. Dad's service was blessed with a tribute from the local Veterans Post, the Navy sent a crew to pass the flag of our country to me and I was thankful for that.

So here comes this religious group that wants to desecrate and spread hate at a families worst moment in life. Burying a loved one, a son, a daughter, a brother, a sister, a husband, a wife, a father, or even a mother. They pretty much say that God hates them or us or our military because of one reason or the other but it all pretty much comes down that God apparently hates homosexual people? CNN actually quoted him as saying this "You can't preach the bible without preaching the hatred of God.". So they show up at these families funerals with a message of hate to do exactly what? Spread hate? Wait it gets better, the leader is a Pastor of a church. Tell me that this is a military oxymoron? So I wonder if this guy has God on speed dial or has his 1-800 number because I would like to get hold of it and ask a few questions myself. He must because he is pretty sure what he is doing is the right thing. I'm not mentioning his name for a reason. I don't want his name found on my blog through any search engine.

This clown of a Pastor is not a man of God in my interpertation of what someone that chooses that vocation in life is or should be practicing. He is a hypocrite in the worst sense. He is a coward and a person that should be rightfully shunned by all. Be you Democrat or Republican, Catholic or Protestant, Hindu or Atheist, Baptist or Lutheran, Jew or Islam, Conservative or Liberal, Green or Libertarian, Independant or who gives a damn? This kind of hate has no place in The United States of America. That is what these funerals are all about and what these brave souls died for in all of our service. And yet they also died for the right of this idiot and his clan of muggers to be able to do what he is doing. Showing up with signs that read "God hates your tears". Freedom of speech.

So along comes a group of folks I absolutely love. The Patriot Guard Riders. This is a class act that nobody could ever take anything from them. They are a group of bikers that are invited by the families of our fallen soldiers to run interference of the protestors during the funeral. Non-Violent mind you. Nobody gets hurt from what I know and have read. They travel hundreds of miles and some of them thousands of miles to be there for a fallen soldier's family. I don't know if they do it at their own expense but I would imagine most of them do. Whatever reason they do it for I thank them for it and wish them many blessings and my prayers for the continued work they all do. What do you know, maybe God has his own messengers and they ride a hog. If you really think about it, how would God send his own soldiers in todays world? Interesting philisophical thought there.

Let me know what you think?
